India drought: '330 million people affected'


At least 330 million people are affected by drought in India, the government has told the Supreme Court

Authorities say this number is likely to rise further given that some states with water shortages have not yet submitted status reports.

The drought is taking place as a heat wave extends across much of India with temperatures crossing 40C for days now.

An 11-year-old girl died of heatstroke while collecting water from a village pump in the western Maharashtra state.

Yogita Desai had spent close to four hours in 42C temperatures gathering water from the pump on Sunday, local journalist Manoj Sapte told the BBC.

She began vomiting after returning home and was rushed to hospital, but died early on Monday.

Yogita's death certificate says she died of heatstroke and dehydration.

The pump was a mere 500m from her house, but a typical wait for water stretches into hours.

India is heavily dependant on monsoon rains, which have been poor for two years in a row.

The government said that nearly 256 districts across India, home to nearly a quarter of the population were impacted by the drought.

Schools have been shut in the eastern state of Orissa and more than 100 deaths due to heatstroke have been reported from across the country, including from the southern states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh which saw more than 2,000 deaths last summer.

Canada wildfire explodes in size, fed by hot, dry weather

By Rod Nickel and Liz Hampton
 LAC LA BICHE, Alberta (Reuters) - A raging Canadian wildfire grew explosively on Saturday as hot, dry winds pushed the blaze across the energy heartland of Alberta and smoke forced the shut down of a major oil sands project.

 The fire that has already prompted the evacuation of 88,000 people from the city of Fort McMurray was on its way to doubling in size on Saturday, the seventh day of what is expected to be the costliest natural disaster in Canada’s history.

 Police escorted another convoy of evacuees out of the oil sands region north of Fort McMurray, taking them on a harrowing journey through burned out parts of the city and billowing smoke. Some 1,600 structures are believed to have been lost.

 With temperatures on Saturday expected to rise as high as 28 Celsius (82 Fahrenheit), officials said the weather was hindering efforts to fight the wildfire.

 “It is a dangerous, unpredictable fire, an absolutely vicious fire that is feeding off of an extremely dry boreal forest,” Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told a media briefing.

 CBC News reported the fire had expanded southeast and grown to 156,000 hectares (385,000 acres). Officials had warned late on Friday that the fire, which they then said was 101,000 hectares, could double in size by the end of Saturday.

 The Syncrude oil sands project said Saturday it will shut down its northern Alberta operation and remove all personnel from the site due to smoke. There was no imminent threat from the fire.

 At least 10 oil sand operators have cut production due to evacuations and other emergency measures that complicated delivery of petroleum by rail, pipeline and highway. [CRU/CA]

 About half of Canada’s oil sands production capacity has been taken offline by the conflagration, according to a Reuters estimate.

 FLEEING CAMPS
 Earlier in the week most evacuees headed south by car on Alberta Highway 63, the only land route out of the area, in a slow-moving exodus that left many temporarily stranded on the roadside as they ran out of gasoline.
 But other residents who initially sought shelter in oil camps and settlements north of the city found themselves cut off in overcrowded conditions. They were forced on Friday and Saturday to retrace their route back through Fort McMurray on Highway 63 as flames continued to spread.

 Goodale said it was important to move those people south, given the risk that winds could shift and push the fire to the northwest of its current location.

 The convoys on Friday moved about 2,500 vehicles of evacuees with 7,500 people south, according to a tweet from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.

 Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt John Spaans told CBC authorities were not certain how many were still left to travel south.
 The full extent of property losses in Fort McMurray has yet to be determined, but one analyst estimated insurance losses could exceed C$9 billion ($7 billion).

 Entire neighborhoods were reduced to ruins, but most evacuees fled without knowing the fate of their own homes. The majority got away with few possessions, some forced to leave pets behind.

 Stephane Dumais, thumbing through his insurance documents at an evacuation center at Lac La Biche, said he has thought about moving away. But the idea doesn’t sit well with the heavy equipment operator for a logging company.

 “To me that’s like giving up on my city,” he said. “As long as it takes to rebuild it, let’s work together. It’s not going to be the same as it used to be.”

Injuries Reported After Tornadoes Rip Through Colorado
5/8/16

At least seven tornadoes touched down in Colorado this weekend, mostly over rural land, as massive storms swept through the area.

This time-lapse video shows one of them in Yuma County, in eastern Colorado.

At least five people were injured in the eastern Colorado city of Wray after a tornado flipped tractors, ripped through outbuildings and destroyed mobile homes.

The storms also produced baseball-sized hail in parts of Colorado.

One driver in Erie, Colorado, north of Denver, filmed the hail as it pounded down on the car windshield.

Residents of Wray pulled to the side of the road to capture video of the shocking twister there first-hand.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/90-minute-tornado-rarity-even-where-tornadoes-common-154918952.html
5/26/16
90-minute tornado a rarity, even where tornadoes are common

A tornado that raked the northern Kansas landscape for 90 minutes was impressive both for its classic "wedge" shape and its sheer endurance — staying on the ground about 10 times longer than the typical twister.

The Storm Prediction Center says most tornadoes last less than 10 minutes and stay on the ground for about 3½ miles. Wednesday's storm covered 26 miles from near Niles and southeast of Chapman, but was moving so slowly it lasted an hour and a half and was so isolated that other storms never interrupted its air flow.

The SPC says the legendary, long-lived tornadoes talked about from a century ago were most likely a series of storms along one general path. It said some storms Thursday afternoon could be long-lasting, too.

___

IT'S BEST WHEN THEY MOVE SLOWLY

The twister that hit Kansas tracked eastward at an average speed of 17.3 mph. The slow forward motion gave forecasters plenty of time to warn people living in the area to either get out of the storm's way or take shelter.

The National Weather Service at Topeka warned Chapman's 1,400 residents at 8:06 p.m. Wednesday that the storm was 4 miles west. The notice gave people 14 minutes to prepare for a storm with winds estimated at 180 mph. Despite the violent winds, the weather service said there were no reports of serious injuries or deaths.

___

WHY DID IT LAST SO LONG?

Tornadoes are usually part of weather systems that form multiple storms — one with hail here, high winds there. Cold air flowing out of those other storms often chokes off the balance a storm needs to keep a tornado going, said Erik Rasmussen, a research scientist at the University of Oklahoma and the project director for Vortex Southeast.

"The things that end up destroying a tornado didn't happen," Rasmussen said. "It was really just bad luck." The next-nearest storm capable of influencing the Chapman twister was south of Wichita, Kansas, 120 miles to the south.

___

WHY DO WE HAVE TORNADOES?

Tornadoes — and on a larger scale, hurricanes — are the most efficient way to move air from one part of the atmosphere to another. Typically in the U.S., tornadoes form when moist, warm air from the Gulf moves northward on air currents to meet drier, cooler air moving in from the Pacific or Canada.

Warm air rises and cool air falls. When air masses collide, physics dictates how to achieve a balance in the atmosphere. Sometimes that involves tornadoes, sometimes it doesn't. The triggering mechanism isn't fully known.

Most often, tornadoes die after 10 minutes or less, but if the intake and outflow are balanced they can continue for an hour or more, as on Wednesday.

"Energy isn't a big consideration," said Harold Brooks of the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, Oklahoma. "It's maintaining the balance of warm, moist air coming into the storm matching with the outflow."

Rasmussen said tornadoes that endure for so long are extraordinary.

"I'm sure less than 1 percent of tornadoes last 90 minutes or more. There's probably only two or three a year," Rasmussen said. The U.S. sees an average of about 1,200 tornadoes a year.

For a common comparison, consider how a bathtub drains. More water in the tub means the funnel will last longer. Interrupt the flow and the funnel disappears.

___

NOT ALL BIG LONG-LASTING STORMS ARE KILLERS

Being on the ground a long time does not necessarily make a storm a killer, and being on the ground a short time doesn't make a storm insignificant. Wednesday's storm, and another earlier this week near Dodge City, Kansas, were in sparsely populated areas.

The Joplin, Missouri, storm that killed 158 people five years ago was on the ground for 6 miles; a storm that killed 24, including seven school children, at Moore, Oklahoma, in 2013 was on the ground for 14 miles.

A Super Tuesday storm in 2008 was on the ground in Arkansas for about two hours — a half-hour longer than Wednesday's twister — but moved faster and was deadlier across rugged terrain. It covered 122 miles and killed 13.

Have U.S. Weather Patterns Changed Permanently? This Week Record High Temps Scorch The Southwest

This week we are going to see “life threatening” heat all across the southwest United States.  In southern California, temperatures will top triple digits in many areas on Monday, and the forecast is for the mercury to reach an astounding 121 degrees in Palm Springs.  Further inland, it is being projected that Phoenix and Las Vegas could both experience their highest temperatures ever early this week.  Summer is just beginning and we are literally seeing things take place that we have never seen happen before.  Just a few weeks ago, I wrote an article about how the weather seems to be going crazy all over America.  Is this just a temporary phenomenon or have weather patterns in the United States changed permanently?

Most people know that the hottest place in America is Death Valley, California.  The record high for Death Valley during the month of June is 129 degrees, and it is being reported that even that record could fall this week…

    The highest temperature on record in the United States during the month of June is 129 F in Death Valley, California, on June 30, 2013.

    “That record could be in jeopardy this weekend or early this week,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Ryan Adamson said.

On Sunday there were already news reports of people dying from this life-threatening heat, and so if you live in the southwest you are going to need to take some very important precautions during this heatwave.  The following are some tips that come from the L.A. County Public Health Department…

— Learn the warning signs of heat-related illnesses

— Stay out of direct sunlight

— Stay hydrated

— Reduce physical activity

— Identify a cool location, such as a mall, library, theater or designated cooling center

— Use cool compresses, misting and baths to lower body temperatures

— Wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothing

— Use sunscreen

— Check on pets, friends, family and neighbors who may be especially, sensitive to excessive heat.

Yes, things always get hot in the summer, especially in places like Phoenix.  But what we are witnessing right now is truly unusual, and this heatwave in June follows the hottest May ever recorded…

    This past May was the warmest May month in a 137-year period, breaking global temperature records, according to a report published Thursday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

    The new data shows that May was the thirtieth consecutive month to have soaring global temperatures across land and sea surfaces. This is the longest and hottest streak since temperature record-keeping began in 1880, according to NOAA.

    Right now, 2016 is on pace to be the hottest year on record.

So are these changes permanent?

It is hard to say, and there are people on both sides of the debate that will angrily argue these issues for hours.

But what we do know is that weather patterns have been changing all throughout human history, and they always will be changing.

And all it would take would be one major event to radically change weather patterns once again.  For example, a major volcanic eruption on the west coast that pumps massive amounts of dust and ash into the air could dramatically cool global temperatures.  If that happens, we could very rapidly be finding ourselves talking about record cold temperatures all across the United States.

But for now we are dealing with record heat, and with record heat comes very dangerous wildfires…

    And along with the heat are coming some damaging wildfires in southern California, New Mexico, and Arizona covering tens of thousands of acres of land and displacing hundreds of families. Firefighters are working to contain the blazes, though the continued heat wave through the weekend could complicate things.

In particular, there is a very dangerous wildfire not too far from Santa Barbara, California that tripled in size from Thursday into Friday…

    A blistering heat wave in Southern California this weekend along with strong winds could further fan a wildfire that has sent swirling flames close to ranches and triggered mandatory evacuations, officials said on Friday.

    The so-called Sherpa Fire feeding on chaparral and grass about 20 miles (32 km) northwest of the affluent city of Santa Barbara tripled in size from 1,200 acres (486 hectares) on Thursday night to more than 4,000 acres (1,619 hectares) early on Friday, fire officials said.

If you follow my writing closely, you already know that last year was the worst year for wildfires in all of U.S. history.

And according to the National Interagency Fire Center, so far we are more than a million acres ahead of the pace that was set last year.

Someone that warned about all of this in advance was author John Paul Jackson.  He warned that record high temperatures would accompany crippling drought all across the southern portion of the country.  You can see a video clip in which he issues this warning right here.

So are we seeing record high temperatures hit the southwest right now?

Yes, that certainly is the case.

And drought is starting to spread all across the southern portion of the nation as well.  The following is the latest map from the U.S. Drought Monitor…

U.S. Drought Monitor - June 2016

In my controversial new book, I also warn that a “perfect storm” is coming.  Weather patterns are going to continue to change, unprecedented natural disasters are going to hit this nation, and our planet is going to shake in frightening and unpredictable ways.

The Bible tells us that the period of time just before the return of Jesus Christ will be the most tumultuous time in all of human history.  Unfortunately, most people really don’t understand what that is going to mean for them and their families.

We are entering a period of time when life is going to seem like it is one big Hollywood disaster movie after another.  There will be great earthquakes, tremendous volcanic eruptions, nightmarish terror attacks, devastating pandemics and crippling economic disruptions.

The days of “normal life” in America are coming to an end.  The years ahead are going to be incredibly challenging, and things are going to be radically different from what we have grown accustomed to.

Hopefully, you have already been preparing for what is coming.

If not, you have a lot of work to do, and not a lot of time to do it.

Powerful tornado strikes east China; 78 reportedly dead
6/23/16

BEIJING — A powerful tornado and hailstorm struck the outskirts of an eastern Chinese city on Thursday, killing at least 78 people and destroying buildings, smashing trees and flipping vehicles on their roofs.

The tornado hit a densely populated area of farms and factories near the city of Yancheng in Jiangsu province, about 800 kilometers (500 miles) south of Beijing.

Nearly 500 of people were injured, 200 of them critically, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. Roads were blocked with trees, downed power lines and other debris, while heavy rain and the possibility of further hailstorms and even more tornados was complicating rescue efforts, state broadcaster CCTV reported.

The disaster has been declared a national-level emergency, and on a trip to Uzbekistan, Chinese President Xi Jinping ordered central government bodies to provide all necessary assistance.

Serious damage after twister in Kansas, no reported injuries
7/8/16

EUREKA, Kan. — A tornado ripped through southeast Kansas late Thursday, causing widespread damage in a small town, but no injuries have been reported.

The National Weather Service confirmed that at about 10 p.m. Thursday, the tornado struck Eureka, a town of roughly 2,600 residents about 60 miles east of Wichita. The tornado damaged several homes, a mobile home park and the Eureka Nursing Center, which lost its south and west-facing walls, The Wichita Eagle reported (http://j.mp/29ndNL1 ).

Residents of the nursing home took shelter in the facility and were likely to be moved to a different facility on Friday.

"The tornado started at the northwest part of the county and went through Eureka," said Levi Vinson, the Greenwood County emergency management director.

Vinsonsaid everyone has been accounted for, but crews were still "checking on some people."

The National Weather Service alerted Eureka's residents to the incoming storm Thursday night at least 15 minutes before the tornado hit, he said.

"We were notified and we sounded the emergency alert outdoor warning sirens," Vinson said. "The leeway they provided us, I think, is what benefited us on the lack of injuries."

Kevin Darmofal, a meteorologist with the weather service in Wichita, said a damage survey team would likely be in Eureka early Friday.

Kelly Johnson, a nurse who works at the nursing center, drove from her home in Wichita to Eureka after hearing reports of the storm. She climbed over debris to enter one of the facility's hallways, where she visited some residents.

"I just checked on one of the residents who is 100 years old," Johnson said. "She was sleeping. People always said that Eureka is in a valley, so it wouldn't get hit by a tornado. When I heard, I had to come."

7/20/16
When will the central US catch a break from oppressive heat?

As the central United States endures a dangerous heat wave this week, many may be wondering when the stifling conditions will end.

Notable drops in heat and humidity will occur across the north-central U.S. this weekend. However, heat and humidity will continue to hold strong across the south-central U.S. into the final week of July.

Before any relief arrives, locations along an approximate 1,500-mile swath from the Dakotas to Texas will endure stifling heat and humidity through the remainder of the week.

It will be the hottest weather of the summer so far in the entire central U.S., according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski.

Highs from the upper 90s F to the mid-100s, which is about 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit above average in most areas, will be common by the end of the week.

High humidity levels and generally sunny skies will send AccuWeather RealFeel Temperatures soaring toward 110 in some locations.

Residents and visitors are reminded to take the extreme heat seriously. Failing to take the necessary precautions can result in a heat-related illness or worse.

The expansive area of high pressure which is causing the heat wave will weaken as a front crosses the Upper Midwest this weekend, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Matt Rinde. Temperatures and humidity levels will then fall across the northern tier.

Areas where heat and humidity levels will be sliced on either Saturday or Sunday include Minneapolis; Grand Forks and Fargo, North Dakota; Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Des Moines, Iowa; and Chicago.

The most noticeable cooling is forecast to take place across Minnesota and the Dakotas, where highs will drop by 10-15 degrees, Rinde explained.

3 killed in 'historic' Louisiana floods; thousands rescued
8/13/16
https://www.yahoo.com/news/more-rain-expected-drop-soggy-louisiana-mississippi-062415433.html

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- As the floodwaters swallowed Lyn Gibson's two-story home, she hacked away on a hole near the roof, desperately trying to get to safety.

She used a saw, a screwdriver and her feet, knocking her way through wood, vinyl and sheet rock.

"I just kept picking and hitting and prying until I could get a hole big enough," the slightly-built, 115-pound woman said. "I would saw for a while. I'd kick at it for a while."

Eventually, Gibson made it out of her Tangipahoa Parish home with her dogs, and they were all rescued by National Guard soldiers on a boat. It was one of thousands of rescues after a deluge dropped more than a foot of rain on parts of Louisiana, submerging roads, cars and homes.

At least three people were killed across the state.

In another dramatic moment, two men on a boat pulled a woman from a car that was almost completely underwater, according to video by WAFB. The woman, who is not initially visible on camera, yells from inside the car: "Oh my god, I'm drowning."

One of the rescuers, David Phung, jumps into the brown water and pulls the woman to safety. She pleads with Phung to get her dog, but he can't find it. After several seconds, Phung takes a deep breath, goes underwater and resurfaces — with the small dog.

Both the woman and dog appeared to be OK.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency, calling the floods "unprecedented" and "historic." He and his family were even forced to leave the Governor's Mansion when chest-high water filled the basement and electricity was shut off.

"That's never happened before," said the governor, whose family relocated to a state police facility in the Baton Rouge area.

Rivers and their tributaries swelled and bulged beyond their banks.

During an aerial tour, an Associated Press reporter saw homes in parts of rural Tangipahoa Parish that looked like little islands among flooded fields. Farmland was covered and streets descended into impassable pools of water.

In the Livingston Parish city of Denham Springs, a suburb of Baton Rouge, entire shopping centers were inundated, only roofs of cars peeking above the water. And in many places, the water was still rising, with days expected before rivers were expected to crest.

"This is an ongoing event. We're still in response mode," Edwards said, urging residents to heed warnings to evacuate and be prepared for a disaster that could last for several days.

Earlier in the day, Edwards said more than 1,000 people had been rescued. That number appeared to at least double by the end of the day, when Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard said 2,000 people in his parish alone had been rescued, and more people still await help.

"We haven't been rescuing people. We've been rescuing subdivisions," he said. "It has not stopped at all today."

Beginning Friday, 6 to 10 inches of rain fell on parts of Louisiana and several more inches of rain fell on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. Some areas got even more rain. In a 24-hour period, Baton Rouge had as much as 11 inches while one weather observer reported more than 17 inches in Livingston.

The system is expected to turn to the north Sunday and portions of central and northern Louisiana could see heavy rain into next week.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant declared a state of emergency for several counties in his state as it also battled the heavy rainfall.

In Baker, just north of Baton Rouge, residents were rescued by boats or waded through waist-deep, snake-infested water to reach dry ground. Dozens of them awoke Saturday morning on cots at a makeshift Red Cross shelter only a few blocks from their flooded homes and cars.

John Mitchell, 23, said he swam to safety with his pit bull after police officers in a boat picked up his 20-year-old girlfriend, her 1 year-old daughter and Mitchell's father.

"This is the worst it's been, ever," Mitchell said. "We tried to wait it out, but we had to get out."

Mitchell fears he lost their trailer home and his car, which was flooded up to the seats. A bag of clothes was all he had time to save as the water levels rapidly rose.

Shanita Angrum, 32, said she called 911 on Friday morning when she realized flood waters had trapped her family in their home. A police officer carried her 6-year-old daughter, Khoie, on his back while she and her husband waded behind them for what "felt like forever."



"Snakes were everywhere," she said. "The whole time I was just praying for God to make sure me and my family were OK."

The body of a woman from Amite was recovered Saturday from the Tickfaw River, according to Michael Martin, chief of operations for the St. Helena Sheriff's Office.

The woman, her husband and the woman's mother-in-law were driving on a state highway Friday when their car was swept off the road. The woman's husband and mother-in-law clung to a tree for hours before they were rescued Saturday, Martin said.

A man died Friday after slipping into a flooded ditch near the city of Zachary, said East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's spokesman Casey Rayborn Hicks, who identified the victim as William Mayfield, 68. And the body of Samuel Muse, 54, was found in St. Helena Parish, where crews pulled him from a submerged pickup on Louisiana Highway 10, authorities said.

Numerous rivers in southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi were overflowing. The governor said some were expected to crest more than 4 feet above previous records. Officials were not sure just how widespread the damage would be.

The Tickfaw River, just south of the Mississippi state line in Liverpool, Louisiana, was already at the highest level ever recorded.

In southwest Mississippi, Leroy Hansford, his wife and stepson were among those rescued near Gloster, which had more than 14 inches of rain, when the nearby Beaver Creek rose quickly overnight.

"We woke up and the water kept on coming," Hansford said. "It came up to my waist."

Flooding Crisis in Louisiana Far From Over
http://www.msn.com/en-us/weather/topstories/flooding-crisis-in-louisiana-far-from-over/ar-BBvK1h6?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp
8/17/16

The forecast for Louisiana on Wednesday was for more rain — and more pain.

With the state still swamped by historic flooding that has left at least 11 dead and displaced tens of thousands more, the National Weather Service warned the deadly deluge was far from done.

"The good news is it's not widespread, more hit and miss," said meteorologist Roger Erickson at the NWS station in Lake Charles, Louisiana. "The problem is there is nowhere for the water to run off. In the last couple of days, we've had to reissue flash flood warnings in areas that had been showing improvement."

The result is dashed hopes for the legions of Louisiana residents who fled their flooded homes for higher ground earlier this week and were hoping to return to their houses and lives.

"It turns your heart upside down," Erickson said. "You think it's over and then it starts raining again."

Erickson said they're "hoping for a drying period this weekend."

"We still have rivers rising, though," he said. "It's going to take one to three weeks to get all this water out into the Gulf of Mexico."

Hurricane Gaston Reforms in Atlantic Ocean

A storm churning in the Atlantic Ocean strengthened into a hurricane on Saturday as a separate system threatened to dump rain on Florida, sparking fears about standing water amid a battle against Zika virus.

Hurricane Gaston was around 655 miles east-southeast of Bermuda and was moving northwest at 8 mph as of 11 p.m., the National Hurricane Center said. It had maximum sustained winds of 85 mph. The hurricane had previously weakened to a tropical storm before regaining strength Saturday.

Forecasters expect the hurricane to slow down and swing north by Monday, and there are no warnings issued for land. The storm could strengthen Sunday or Monday, the hurricane center said.

Meanwhile, a storm system in the Caribbean was producing showers and storms in Cuba but could bring rain to Florida — something that could cause standing water to collect and add a challenge to the state's efforts to combat the mosquito-borne Zika virus, officials said.

The low pressure system could bring rain to southern Florida and the Florida Keys by Sunday, forecasters said.

The system was large but disorganized Saturday night, but it has a 40 percent chance of turning into a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours, the hurricane center said. A tropical cyclone doesn't necessarily mean a destructive storm like a hurricane, but just a rotating organized system.

"As this system moves into the Gulf of Mexico it will have a greater potential to organize, so it still poses a significant risk, and we are urging everyone to remain vigilant and to prepare for this possible scenario," Florida Department of Emergency Management Director Bryan Koon said in a statement.

Florida officials urged residents to dump any water that collects. Florida has confirmed nearly 600 infections of Zika, a virus that can cause severe birth defects when pregnant women are infected — including microcephaly, a condition where the head is unusually small.

The vast majority of those cases are related to travel to countries experiencing Zika transmission, areas that include much of Latin America and the Caribbean.

But more than 40 cases of locally transmitted Zika have been confirmed in Florida, and there have been outbreaks in an area of Miami and Miami Beach. On Tuesday, a case was reported on Florida's Gulf coast.

Hermine hits Florida coast as 1st hurricane in a decade

9/2/16

CARRABELLE, Fla. (AP) — Hurricane Hermine made landfall in Florida's Big Bend area early Friday as the first hurricane to hit the state in more than a decade, bringing soaking rain, high winds and thousands of power outages.

The Category 1 storm hit just east of St. Marks around 1:30 a.m. EDT with winds around 80 mph, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. Hermine later weakened to a tropical storm as it moved farther inland.

Projected storm surges of up to 12 feet menaced a wide swath of the coast and an expected drenching of up to 10 inches of rain carried the danger of flooding along the storm's path over land, including the state capital Tallahassee, which hadn't been hit by a hurricane since Kate in 1985.

As of 5 a.m. EDT Friday, Hermine was weakening as it moved into southern Georgia, the Hurricane Center said. It was centered about 20 miles west of Valdosta, Georgia, and was moving north-northeast near 14 mph.

A weather rarity: Tropical Storm Julia forms over land
9/14/16
http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/14/us/tropical-storm-julia-weather/index.html

(CNN)While a super typhoon was wreaking havoc in East Asia, a little tropical storm named Julia formed in Florida on Tuesday night.

Yes, "in" Florida. As in, it formed over land -- a very rare occurrence, meteorologically speaking.

The center of the storm was over the city of Jacksonville when it was given tropical storm status late Tuesday night -- but that decision caused some controversy.

'Persistent organization'
At 11 p.m., the National Hurricane Center made the decision to name the storm after a small area of tropical storm-force winds was consistently reported for 12 hours.

"Given this persistent organization, the system is classifiable as a tropical cyclone and advisories are being initiated on Tropical Storm Julia, the tenth named storm of the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season," the center said in its discussion Tuesday night.

Many meteorologists went to Twitter to disagree with the findings.
Some even wondered why this storm received a name while the devastating Louisiana floods in August did not meet the criteria for a named storm.

    Inland Tropical Storm Julia. I won't comment on #Julia getting a name while the Louisiana no-name system did not. Nope.
    — Ryan Maue (@RyanMaue) September 14, 2016

Why are tropical cyclones the only storms that get an official name
How can a tropical storm form over land, rather than over warm ocean water? While Julia's center was slightly inland, there was plenty of bath-temperature water nearby, which fueled the thunderstorms that formed its core.

Another interesting phenomenon could also be at play: the "brown ocean" effect, in which a tropical cyclone gains enough energy from a saturated Earth to keep a warm core. It's too early for scientists to know for sure what caused Julia to form over land, but these theories will certainly be researched as a result of this rare formation.

Terrifying Undoctored Creepy Skull Image Of Hurricane Matthew Spooks The Internet

A sinister image of Hurricane Matthew, resembling a human skull, has lit up the Internet. The creepy satellite photo was posted Tuesday by Weather Channel senior meteorologist Stu Ostro as the hurricane made landfall in Haiti.

10/5/16


Hurricane Matthew is a monster storm. Now it has a monster image to match.

A sinister image of Hurricane Matthew, resembling a human skull, has lit up the Internet. The creepy satellite photo was posted Tuesday by Weather Channel senior meteorologist Stu Ostro as the hurricane made landfall in Haiti.

Hurricane Matthew has not yet officially hit Florida, but the effects from the hurricane could be clearly seen in the video taken around 2:00PM this afternoon:

The image shows the hurricane through an infrared camera lens. It’s been tweaked to show the storm in apocalyptic colors that accentuate the hurricane’s eye and make its teeth look like the comic book character Ghost Rider or the Grinch, some Twitter users suggested.

    Sinister-looking face of #HurricaneMatthew at landfall in #Haiti [Un-doctored #weather #satellite image] pic.twitter.com/hrviDVuJ3R

    — Stu Ostro (@StuOstro) October 4, 2016

It’s creepy, but in a nutshell, CNN meteorologist Judson Jones explains that “basically, scientists use color tables to identify the strongest part of the storm.”

In the viral Twitter post, gray, black and red were chosen.

Paul Meyer, an atmospheric scientist at NASA’s Earth Science Office, told CNN that the skull’s “teeth” are cold convective clouds. source

'This storm will kill you,' FL gov. warns ahead of Hurricane Matthew

(CNN)Hurricane Matthew is pummeling the Bahamas right now, and its dangerous winds have picked up speed as the storm continues north. Its next stop could be the United States.

Here's what you need to know now about the powerful storm that forecasters say is gaining strength:

• Hurricane Matthew has strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 mph and gusts up to 165 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. Matthew continues to head towards Florida's east coast and is expected to hit the coast late Thursday or early Friday. As of 11 a.m. ET, it was located about 180 miles southeast of West Palm Beach and was moving northwest at 14 mph.
• The storm has already killed at least 28 people in three Caribbean countries. Twenty-three died in Haiti alone, said Civil Protection Service spokesman Joseph Edgard Celestin, who says communication issues have prevented authorities from assessing the damage and casualties in the far southwest portion of the country.
• Authorities urged more than 2 million people to leave their homes in coastal Florida, Georgia and South Carolina as the storm neared -- the largest mandatory evacuations in the United States since Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast in 2012.
• Based on the latest projections, Matthew could make landfall in Florida early Friday as a Category 4 hurricane. It could also skirt the coast as it continues north. While Matthew's outer bands were already starting to hit Miami-Dade County by mid-morning, Mayor Carlos Jimenez said there's a bit of good news: "The probability of sustained hurricane winds has gone down 13%."
• Florida Gov. Rick Scott offered a dire warning Thursday morning for people living in evacuation zones: "This is serious. ... Don't take a chance. A small movement (of the storm) could mean a lot. That's why we have to prepare for a direct hit. So again, if you need to evacuate and you haven't, evacuate. This storm will kill you. Time is running out. We don't have that much time left."

NBC Correspondent: Obama Climate Deal 'Designed to Stop'... Hurricanes?
You are about to enter another dimension...

 Only a True Believer would posit such nonsense -- which makes sense, considering the following report comes from NBC.

Apparently President Barack Obama "believes so deeply in protecting the environment" that his climate change agreement is designed to stop hurricanes like Matthew, which is slated to make landfall on parts of the Southeastern U.S. on Thursday.

Did you know President Obama has the power to stop hurricanes in their tracks? We thought only Caped Crusader Al Gore could do that. NBC has the inside track, however, on our president's supernatural powers. Newsbusters reports on NBC's latest "news" report:

    ...Obama spoke to reporters on Wednesday afternoon in the White House Rose Garden commenting on the required number of nations having ratified the Paris climate change agreement and, almost on cue, NBC’s Ron Allen connected global warming to Hurricane Matthew set to bear down on the Bahamas, the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida.

    Speaking on MSNBC Live to host Kate Snow, Allen first gushed about how the President “believes so deeply in protecting the environment” that the deal marks “one of the most significant aspects of his legacy” before bringing in Hurricane Matthew as a intriguing “practical matter.”

Newsbusters accurately notes that Allen seemed to forget that up to now, there hasn't been "a major Atlantic Hurricane to crack the top ten in intensity in nine years."  Still, Allen pressed on:

    t’s very interesting that this is happening a day when there’s a hurricane bearing down on the United States and in the Caribbean because these severe storms, beach erosions, intense weather episodes that we’ve had is perhaps the most practical sample of what the president was talking about as the threat that the planet faces[.]

The NBC correspondent added that stopping Hurricanes like Matthew is what Obama's entire climate accord is predicated upon:

    "[This] is what this whole climate agreement signed by 190 nations and now ratified by 60 or so is designed to stop."

Remember, there is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call ... the mainstream media.

'Exceptional' drought killing crops across Alabama
http://www.al.com/news/huntsville/index.ssf/2016/10/exceptional_drought_killing_cr.html
10/28/16

Six months into a deepening drought, the weather is killing crops, threatening cattle and sinking lakes to their lowest levels in years across much of the South.

The very worst conditions — what forecasters call "exceptional drought" — are in the mountains of northeast Alabama and northwest Georgia, a region known for its thick green forests, waterfalls and red clay soil.

"Here at my farm, April 15 was when the rain cut off," said David Bailey, who had to sell half his cattle, more than 100 animals, for lack of hay in Alabama's scorched northeast corner.

"We've come through some dry years in the '80s, but I never seen it this dry, this long," Bailey added. "There's a bunch of people in a lot of bad shape here."

The drought has spread from these mountains onto the Piedmont plateau, down to the plains and across 13 southern states, from Oklahoma and Texas to Florida and Virginia, putting about 33 million people in drought conditions, according to Thursday's U.S. Drought Monitor.

Wildfires raged Thursday near Birmingham, Alabama. Statewide, the blazes have charred more than 12,000 acres in the past 30 days.

"There are places getting ready to set records for most numbers of days in a row without rain. It's a once-in-100-year kind of thing for this time of year," said John Christy, Alabama's state climatologist.

The South has historically enjoyed abundant water, which has been fortunate, because much of its soil is poor at holding onto it. But the region's booming growth has strained this resource. A legal battle between Georgia and Florida over water from rivers and their watersheds goes before a federal court official Monday, and the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to review his recommendations.

The dry weather is only making things worse.

"We're 10 days away from a drought at any given time," Christy explained. "Unlike the Midwest and other places in the country, we are closer to a drought than almost any place else."

Parts of northern Georgia and Alabama have now seen their driest 60 days on record, Thursday's national drought report showed.

If the drought persists, authorities said it could lead to the kinds of water use restrictions that are common out West, but haven't been seen in parts of the South in nearly a decade.

During a major drought in Georgia in 2007, police in Atlanta's suburb of Alpharetta were given the power to criminally cite anyone watering their lawns. In Alabama that year, people were fined for watering on the wrong day and many homes became infested by thirsty ants and cockroaches.

At the height of the 2007 drought, then-Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue prayed for rain with hundreds of residents at the state Capitol. The Georgia Department of Agriculture is reviving the practice: It has announced plans for a Monday "Pray for Rain" gathering with the state agriculture commissioner and Republican U.S. Rep. Doug Collins in the northeast Georgia town of Lavonia.

Video: Deadly tornadoes strike Italy, near Rome

A strong front spawned multiple tornadoes close to Rome Sunday, killing two people.

“Had they reached the city center, it would have been an apocalypse,” wrote MeteoWeb, an Italian meteorological news site.

One tornado blasted a coastal town about 30 miles west of Rome on Sunday evening. Then another tornado struck a neighborhood 18 miles to its north

The first tornado struck the town of Ladispoli around 6 p.m. local time, damaging dozens of buildings.

“It came in from the sea and swept through the town center,” said Crescenzo Paliotta, the mayor of Ladispoli. “There were fishing boats in the harbor that were moved over 100 meters.”

Close-up video shows trees snapping, a traffic sign flattened, and large debris flying through the streets.

    VERY CLOSE CALL with the Ladispoli, Italy tornado yesterday! Video: Baraondanews.it @reedtimmerTVN @SeanSchofer @stormpics @JimCantore pic.twitter.com/kJyqYIhhqX

    — severe-weather.EU (@severeweatherEU) November 7, 2016

A man was killed “by a piece of masonry blown off the edge of an apartment building,” according to The Local-Italy.

On Monday, schools were closed in the town as the cleanup effort began.

The second tornado, which remained on the ground for some distance and was widely photographed, caused substantial damage around Cesano, about 18 miles north of Rome. Here a man died when a tree landed on his car.

Below-zero temperatures to expand across US during 3rd week of December
12/17/16

A new batch of arctic air will blast into the United States in the wake of a cross-country storm with snow, ice and rain this weekend.

The main thrust of the new arctic blast will be felt over the Central states from Saturday night to Monday.

Fresh, deep snowcover will create ideal conditions for the cold air to spread southward from Canada to the northern and central Plains and part of the Midwest. As a result, the air coming into these locations will be even colder than that of this week.

This weekend, actual temperatures will plummet at night to minus 30 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit from portions of Montana and Wyoming to parts of the Dakotas, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Temperatures dipping to between 20 and 10 below zero are in store from parts of Colorado to portions of Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois.

Subzero nighttime temperatures will extend as far to the south as parts of New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Indiana and Michigan.

After plummeting to near zero by Sunday morning, temperatures may struggle to stay above zero on Sunday afternoon around Chicago, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Bill Deger.

"Fans heading to the matchup between the Bears and Packers may experience the coldest NFL game ever played at Soldier Field during Sunday afternoon," Deger said. "AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures will average close to 10 below zero."

Even during the day, the movement of air ranging from a slight breeze to strong winds combined with other conditions will push AccuWeather RealFeel Temperatures to dangerous and even life-threatening levels for those without shelter or not properly dressed. At times, RealFeel Temperatures may dip to 25 degrees lower than the actual temperature.

Tornadoes, Severe Storms Rip Through New Orleans, Damaging Homes
2/8/17

Louisiana residents were picking through the wreckage Wednesday after at least seven tornadoes tore through New Orleans and its vicinity — prompting the governor to declare a state of emergency and send out the National Guard.

No deaths were reported in the wake of Tuesday's devastation, but at least 25 people were treated for mostly minor injuries in area hospitals, including a woman eight months pregnant whose home caved in on her and her two children, officials said. She was listed as stable, and her kids were unharmed.

Meanwhile, Gov. John Bel Edwards dispatched the Guard to help state and local police patrol the hardest-hit areas and prevent looting.

 Eastern New Orleans suffered the heaviest damage as a tornado ran along the ground for about two miles while covering about a half-mile wide area, said New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. The neighborhood is located in the Ninth Ward, which was pummeled by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

"I am heartbroken to once again see Louisiana families suffering in the wake of devastating tornadoes today," Edwards said in a statement. "We are working tirelessly to ensure that every citizen affected by this storm receives the resources they need as quickly as possible."

100,000+ Evacuated As California Braces For Monster Flood While Frantic Crews Try To Repair Oroville Dam
More than 100,000 people were told to evacuate because of a “hazardous situation” involving the Northern California dam's emergency spillway. At one point, the NWS warned that the auxiliary spillway was expected to fail and could send an “uncontrolled release of flood waters from Lake Oroville.” However, by late Sunday night, officials said the immediate threat had passed because water had stopped washing over the emergency spillway.

“This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill,” the National Weather Service said Sunday, urging people living below Oroville Dam to evacuate.

Major Pacific Storm Lucifer Impacts Southern California On Friday; Upgraded To Category Five

Major Pacific Storm Lucifer has been upgraded to category five out of the one through six system here at Southern California Weather Force, impacting on your Friday.  Lucifer is pending a category six, the highest on our scale.   Our rare Hurricane Wind Speed Warning is up for certain areas.  Damaging winds, fallen trees and powerlines, a risk of severe weather with a tornado risk, and flooding will accompany the system.  This strong of a surface low has not been seen in over 20 years.

Before we get into this article … Lucifer was chosen on a vote from viewers on the Southern California Weather Force Facebook Page.  I had no idea what kind of storm would fall on the “L” name but did predict because of the name it would be the worst one of the season … It’s also in the FB page itself.   The people choose the names … I do not …

The storm is hitting with some rainfall out ahead of the main front from Ventura County, north to Kern … west to SLO/SBA County today, which will spread eastward for a run at LA by the early morning hours.  This was predicted in the previous article, Click Here.

As for tonight … do feel that the calming wind ahead of the system for the LA/OC Coast/Basin areas , south to the San Diego Coast and Valley along I-15 Escondido will be prime for dense fog so if you are going to travel … take note on this fog as it will be very dense.

Jose now third major hurricane of season
By UPI Staff   |   Updated Sept. 7, 2017 at 5:11 PM



Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Hurricane Jose strengthened into a Category 3 storm Thursday evening, making it the third major hurricane of the Atlantic season, the National Hurricane Center said Thursday.

In its 5 p.m. advisory, the NHC said the eye of the storm was located about 590 miles east of the Lesser Antilles with sustained winds up to 120 mph.

Jose formed earlier this week in the central Atlantic, more than 1,000 miles east of Hurricane Irma, and so far is following Irma's path westward.

The NHC said, "Jose is moving toward the west-northwest near 18 mph. The hurricane is expected to continue on this heading with a slight decrease in forward speed during the next couple of days."

Hurricane watches were issued for Antigua and Barbuda, both of which sustained damage from Hurricane Irma on Wednesday. Tropical storm watches also were in effect for Anguilla, Montserrat, St. Kitts, Nevis, Saba and St. Eustatius.

The NHC forecast track shows Jose's center nearing parts of the Lesser Antilles Saturday afternoon and Puerto Rico on Sunday before it makes a turn toward the north. In a Thursday update, the NHC forecasts Hurricane Jose's turn will veer it farther away from the U.S. coast into a more northeastward direction.

Jose is the 10th named storm of the 2017 Atlantic season and third major hurricane. A hurricane is classified "major" when it reaches Category 3 or stronger.

Hurricane Jose strengthens to 'extremely dangerous' Category 4

(CNN)Hurricane Jose strengthened to an "extremely dangerous" Category 4 storm Friday with maximum sustained winds near 150 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm sits east of the Leeward Islands and is forecast to move west-northwest into the Atlantic Ocean over the coming days.

As of Friday at 11 a.m., a hurricane watch was in effect for Antigua, Barbuda and Anguilla; St. Martin; and St. Barthelemy -- islands that were all just battered by Hurricane Irma.

The eye of Hurricane Irma passed over Barbuda, a tiny Caribbean island of about 1,800 residents, on Wednesday, destroying telecommunication systems and cell towers. The storm damaged about 95% of the buildings on the island, Prime Minister Gaston Browne said.

In this satellite image taken Thursday, the eye of Hurricane Irma, left, is just north of the island of Hispaniola, with Hurricane Jose, right, in the Atlantic Ocean.

This is the first time on record that the Atlantic has had two hurricanes with 150-plus mph winds at the same time, Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach said.

Fluctuations in Hurricane Jose's intensity are possible for the next day or so, the National Hurricane Center said, and the storm is expected to gradually weaken after that.

BREAKING! Hurricane Makes Landfall!

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Hurricane Max hit Mexico’s southern Pacific coast as a Category 1 storm Thursday and was expected to move inland into Guerrero state, a region that includes the resort city of Acapulco.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center issued a hurricane warning for Max for the coastline between Zihuatanejo and Punta Maldonado.

The center said Max should weaken as it moves over land but could bring “life-threatening flash floods and rainfall” to Guerrero and Oaxaca states.

Max had maximum sustained winds of 80 mph (130 kph), was located about 55 miles (90 kilometers) east-southeast of Acapulco and was heading toward the east at 8 mph (13 kph), the hurricane center reported.

Hurricane Maria grows to Category 5, threatens storm-battered Caribbean
9/18/17

Hurricane Maria intensified into a dangerous Category 5 storm and pounded the little island of Dominica as it surged into the eastern Caribbean on Monday night, and forecasters warned it might become even stronger.

The storm was following a path that could take it on Tuesday near many of the islands already wrecked by Hurricane Irma and then head toward a possible direct strike on Puerto Rico on Wednesday.

There were no immediate reports from Dominica after the eye wall moved ashore, but earlier zinc roofs blew off homes as the outer edge of the storm began whipping the island.

Dominica authorities had closed schools and government offices and urged people to move from dangerous areas to shelters.

"We should treat the approaching hurricane very, very seriously," Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit warned. "This much water in Dominica is dangerous."

In August 2015, Tropical Storm Erika unleashed flooding and landslides that killed 31 people and destroyed more than 370 homes on the small, mountainous island.

Officials on nearby Guadeloupe said the French island would experience extremely heavy flooding and warned that many communities could be submerged overnight.

Yet another powerful tropical storm has just made landfall, and has hit Puerto Rico as a Category 4 hurricane.

Hurricane Maria has picked up speed, and smashed into the Caribbean with winds up to 175 mph.

Experts all agree that Maria is an extremely dangerous storm, and warning advisories have been issued.

“Maria will bring a potentially catastrophic combination of storm-surge flooding, destructive winds and flooding rain to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands,” said Fox News Senior Meteorologist, Janice Dean.
