The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country.

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/07/15/19485252-worst-heat-wave-of-season-bakes-northeast-and-great-lakes?lite&ocid=msnhp&pos=4
7/15/13
Worst heat wave of season bakes Northeast and Great Lakes

Blistering heat and stifling humidity settled in Monday over tens of millions of people from Maine through the Ohio Valley, and forecasters warned that relief was as far off as the weekend -- day or night.

The culprit was a dome of high pressure that effectively turned a quarter of the country into a convection oven. It’s not expected to budge until a cold front shoves it out of the way on Friday.

The heat was expected to be more stifling Monday at the Canadian border than in the Carolinas, and more oppressive along the Great Lakes than along the Rio Grande.

Making matters worse, nighttime lows across much of the Northeast are expected to drop only into the low 80s, compounding the heat for the following day. In the dead of night Monday in Philadelphia, it will feel like 90 degrees.

“If you think you’re going to do a run later in the day or, you know, go into your garden later in the day, you can’t. It’s just too hot,” said Stephanie Abrams, a meteorologist for The Weather Channel.

Forecasters said the heat would only grow by the day. The forecast high for Philadelphia is 94 on Monday, 95 on Wednesday and 97 on Thursday. For Newark, N.J., the expected high is 95 on Monday, 97 on Thursday and 98 on Friday.

The health commissioner of Philadelphia, where the heat index Monday could reach as high as 103 degrees, activated special summer heat programs, including a hotline for heat emergencies.

Con Edison, the utility that provides power to New York, said it was prepared for outages and had extra crews on call, although it said a $1.2 billion upgrade after Hurricane Sandy should help keep the juice flowing.

The East wasn’t the only part of the country broiling. The forecast high was 97 for Billings, Mont., 99 for Medford, Ore., and 101 for Boise, Idaho. Those are as much as 10 degrees above average for this time of year.

Forecasters posted a heat advisory for parts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and warned people to stay out of the sun and check on neighbors and relatives.

They took the more serious step of posting an excessive heat warning — defined as a prolonged period of dangerously high temperatures — for the counties around Philadelphia.

It has already been a hotter July than normal. The average temperature this month has been five to six degrees above normal in Boston and elsewhere and New England, and three to four degrees above normal in New York and Philadelphia.

As far north as Vermont, temperatures were in the 90s. Burlington, Vt., even hit a record high temperature for the day -- 93 degrees, meteorologist Michael Muccilli of the National Weather Service told NBC News. The last time it hit 93 was on July 15, 1955.

People in the area were escaping the heat by going down to Lake Champlain or taking a dip in local rivers and streams, Muccilli said.

India says nearly 6,000 missing a month after devastating floods

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India officially declared on Monday that nearly 6,000 people were missing a month after flash floods ravaged large parts of its northern state of Uttarakhand, but stopped short of saying they were presumed dead.

The figure of 5,748, based on tallies of missing persons from around the country, was the first official estimate following weeks in which the numbers of dead and missing fluctuated wildly from a few hundred to several thousand.

 Their families will now be eligible for financial relief, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna told a news conference, adding that his government would pay 150,000 rupees ($2,500) to families in the state, besides compensation from the federal government.

 "We are not getting into the controversy whether the missing persons are dead or not," said Bahuguna. "We are abiding by what the families of the victims say, and if they think that they haven't come back and have no hope as well, (then) we are providing them monetary relief."

 The official death toll still stands at 580, an official of the National Disaster Management Authority told Reuters. More than 4,600 of the missing in Uttarakhand had come from elsewhere in India, said the official, who declined to be identified as he was not authorized to speak to the media.

 Record rains in June caused devastating landslides and flooded rivers in Uttarakhand, trapping tens of thousands of Hindu devotees, who flock there each year on a pilgrimage to the temple towns of Kedarnath, Gangotri, Badrinath and Yamunotri.

The rains buried villages in silt and washed away roads, while raging rivers like the Ganges swept away homes on their banks.

The disaster, dubbed a "Himalayan tsunami" by officials and media, prompted one of the largest airlifts in the history of the Indian air force, as helicopters flew hundreds of sorties to rescue residents and pilgrims and drop thousands of kilograms of relief material.

More than 100,000 people were rescued by the air force and security force personnel on the ground, officials said.

Nine injured in Colorado lightning strike

By Becky Bratu, Staff Writer, NBC News

Nine farm workers were struck by lightning Thursday afternoon at the former Grant Family Farms site in the Fort Collins, Colo., area, a fire official said.

Of those injured, two are in critical condition and four are in serious condition. Three workers were able to leave in personal vehicles. Wellington Fire Protection District Chief Gary Green said the workers were in the field during a "crazy lightning storm."

Two of the patients were semi-conscious, he said. They were unable to communicate and respond to questions, and showed general muscle weakness and inability to move their arms and legs. Green said they were breathing and had pulses.

Tornado hits Ohio's Ursuline College; no one hurt
7/20/13

PEPPER PIKE, Ohio (AP) — A tornado packing 110 mph winds hit Ursuline College in northeast Ohio early Saturday morning, collapsing a wall of the school's athletic center and damaging other buildings but causing no injuries, officials said.

The EF1 twister hit about 3:35 a.m. northwest of the college and continued across part of the campus, said meteorologist William Comeaux of the National Weather Service in Cleveland. It reached 100-200 yards wide and traveled 1.3 miles.

Only a few students were on campus at the time, and they weren't close to the athletic center that was hardest hit, a college spokeswoman said.

"The blessing is that there was no loss of life or injury," Sister Diana Stano, president of the 1,500-student school about 13 miles east of Cleveland said on the college's website.

No one answered the main number for the college Saturday evening, but a recorded message said the campus was closed Saturday and Sunday to assess the damage.

The storm caused an external wall of the school's O'Brien Athletic Center to collapse and destroyed part of the roof. It also damaged several other buildings, including the Dauby Science Center and the Ralph M. Besse Library. Many trees were uprooted or destroyed and other campus facilities had minor damage.

College spokeswoman Angela DelPrete said only about five students were on campus at the time and they were about 1,000 feet from the gymnasium. She described debris scattered around the campus and broken windows. Weather service photos showed roof tiles torn away on the gymnasium exposing splintered wood and support beams.

Stano told The Plain Dealer that Ursuline was accepted as an NCAA Division II school only last week.

"Now we don't have a place to play," she said.

Ursuline was founded by Roman Catholic nuns as the first women's college in Ohio. Men now also attend the school.

Despite the damage Saturday, Comeaux said, "It's a beautiful area with lots of trees."

He said it's been about two years since a tornado has touched down in the region; the state averages 17-19 tornadoes per year. A disaster relief fund will be established to help rebuild the campus, the website said.

There seem to be a lot of reports over floods this year...

http://local.msn.com/phoenix-thunderstorms-flood
Heavy thunderstorms flood the Phoenix area
7/21/13

Flash flooding quickly ensued in and around Phoenix, Ariz., on Sunday as drenching thunderstorms raced through.

The thunderstorms crossed the Phoenix area at midday Sunday, dropping 0.88 of an inch of rain at the city's Sky Harbor Airport in just 43 minutes.

The airport averages 1.05 inches of rain during the entire month of July.

A total of 1.65 inches of rain poured down in 30 minutes in nearby Scottsdale. The resultant flooding forced law enforcement to close numerous streets from McDonald Road north to Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd.

Another downpour total included 1.97 inches of rain in only 30 minutes in Paradise Valley.

The Phoenix area will be subject to another heavy thunderstorm or two through Sunday night, which threatens to worsen the flooding situation.

Spottier showers and thunderstorms will follow for Monday with drier conditions expected for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Storms dump baseball-sized hail in several counties in Kansas

My husband, Bill, got a call from a friend (and fellow farmer) who was in Hutchinson (Kan.), and he told us they were getting pelted with huge hail, and it was coming our way.

Bill and our boys got several trucks and vehicles put in the shed just in the nick of time. We watched the storm roll in and knew the hail was coming because the huge thunderhead cloud was green. When the first large hail fell, there were only a few big pieces, and we thought we got lucky and that the worst of it had passed us by.

But then the really big hail started, and it was almost deafening.

The super-sized hail lasted for several minutes, and then we had several more minutes of quarter- and pea-sized ice. It was scary and awesome all at the same time.

The sheer size of the hail was so impressive, but at the same time, we knew it was damaging our crops. Crops that up until this point had been looking great.

It's dark now so we'll have to wait until morning to see the full extent of the damage.

Thunderstorms to rage across much of US after 2 die in Indiana

Thunderstorms were set to hit much of the country Monday, bringing more rain after two people - including a girl - drowned in a swollen river in North Carolina.

The National Weather Service warned late Sunday and early Monday that “hazardous weather” could hit from Florida to Maine and as far west as Colorado.

Delilah Lovett, 10, and Juan Alberdi, 48, died in Wilson’s Creek, N.C., late Saturday, NBC station WCNC.com reported Sunday.

Delilah, of Charlotte, had gone swimming in the river which was swollen by heavy rain. Alberdi’s wife said that he had drowned trying to save the girl after she got into difficulty.

And in Arizona, a tour bus carrying 33 people to Las Vegas after a trip to the Grand Canyon was swept away by floodwaters as the driver attempted to cross a wash near Kingman. No one was injured.

"It was a really strong storm dumping quite a bit of rain ... and it caused flash flooding," Chris Stumpf, a National Weather Service forecaster in Las Vegas, told The Associated Press. "They were driving on a portion of the road where they shouldn't have tried to drive across. They should not have been driving through there."

Rhonda Ho, operations manager for Canyon Coach Lines, said its driver Joseph Razon saw a car right in front of him go through a section of the highway covered by some water, and "he thought, if a car can go through it, I can go through it."

"Then he got slammed by a rushing current of water that came out of nowhere," she told the AP. "He was driving in almost neck-deep water and trying to control the bus while it was floating." 

She said Razon intentionally tilted the bus against an embankment so it would stop and passengers could escape through its roof.

This kind of weather will remain a problem.

Weather.com said that “thunderstorms will continue to affect large swaths of the country, and flash flooding will be a significant concern.”

“The best chance for a severe storm or two will be over portions of eastern Colorado and western Kansas,” it said.

“However, flash flooding will be a more widespread concern from southern Nevada east across the Four Corners region and into the Central Plains, including much of Kansas and western Missouri,” weather.com added. “Localized flash flooding will linger in parts of the I-95 Northeast corridor from Philadelphia to New York as well from heavy rainfall on Sunday.”

In Philadelphia, the National Weather Service recorded a record all-time daily rainfall of 7.99 inches at the Philadelphia International Airport. More than 7 inches fell during a 4-hour period, NBC10.com reported.

Weather.com said the Plains states could see localized rainfall of more than 3 inches. It said this could lead to flash floods, given that the ground was already wet. In the West, the rain and rugged terrain could create the potential for flash flood.

“While the West will see that flash flood threat diminish on Monday, it will continue – and perhaps even worsen – over parts of Kansas, Missouri, northern Oklahoma and northern Arkansas,” weather.com said.

Philadelphia gets record one-day rainfall: 7.99 inches

PHILADELPHIA -- Heavy rain caused major flooding and traffic nightmares across the area Sunday and set an all-time record for one-day rainfall in Philadelphia.

A record all-time daily rainfall record of 7.99 inches fell at the Philadelphia International Airport, according to the National Weather Service. More than 7 inches fell during a 4-hour period. That breaks the all-time record for a single day of 6.63 inches set Sept. 16, 1999, during Tropical Storm Floyd. Records go back to 1872.

The airport experienced a power outage due to the weather. A spokesperson says Terminal A East lost power around 5 p.m. Power was restored around 9:45 p.m. Passengers experienced minor delays, according to spokesperson Vicki Lupica.

A flash flood warning was extended for Camden, Philadelphia, Delaware, Gloucester, New Castle and Salem counties until 10:45 p.m.

The heaviest rain moved through Gloucester City, Camden County, shortly after 3 p.m. Within a span of three hours about 7 inches of rain flooded the area.

At least eight cars were submerged in high water in the eastbound lane of I-76 at Kings Highway. Two people were left stranded in a car in the middle of the street. Authorities say both people were rescued. No injuries were reported.

Lightning strikes were also a problem for the area. Fire crews put out a minor fire at a home on the 100 block of North Brown Street after it was struck by lightning. No one was injured.

A driver was trapped on top of his roof under the Route 42 overpass. Two other cars were trapped in the water.

There was also major flooding along Route 130 in Pennsauken. Shore traffic combined with flooding rains made for major backups along the Atlantic City Expressway. There were reports of delays of up to two hours.

The on and off ramp from I-95 to Broad Street in Philadelphia was shut down around 4:30 p.m. due to major flooding. It was reopened just before 9 p.m.

From what I've read, hurricanes are rare in Hawaii...

http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/breaking/217400061.html
Big Island under flood advisory as rains move to west side
7/29/13

HILO » A flood advisory remains in effect for Hawaii island at least through 6:15 p.m. as the brunt of Tropical Storm Flossie moved past Hilo and East Hawaii and began pestering Kailua-Kona and West Hawaii with heavy rains and high winds.

The lower Puna and Kau areas appeared to be the most badly hit portions of East Hawaii. The Hawaii Police Department reported fallen trees on Highway 132, the Pahoa-Kapoho Highway in the area of Lava Tree State Park.

The highway was closed around noon but reopened about 2:30, Hawaii County Civil Defense officials said.

More than 6,000 customers of the Hawaii Electrical Light Co., mostly from Volcano to Pahoa, lost power after high winds knocked down power lines in various areas of Puna, said Kristin Okinaka, HELCO deputy corporate communications officer.

At the peak there were about 6,300 homes and businesses without power, according to Hawaii Electric Light Co. That included 2,800 customers from Volcano to Glenwood, 2,200 customers from Kalapana to Nanawale and 1,300 in Panaewa. Power was restored to some areas, and by mid-afternoon there were 5,000 customers without power, HELCO reported.

Power has since been restored to about 500 customers, but HELCO crews are still working on the rest of the outages, Okinaka said about 3:45 p.m.

Portions of Kona and Kohala began feeling the brunt of the storm about mid-afternoon.

About 2:30 p.m., Kaiminani Drive near Pia Place, in a subdivision mauka of Keahole Airport, was closed for about half an hour due to a fallen tree, Civil Defense officials said. It has since been reopened.

The county's Hele-On bus service is expected to resume full operations on Tuesday. A single run of the Kohala-Hilo route is scheduled to go at 7:30 tonight.

In the central part of the island, rain fell but many residents went about their business like it was a normal day.

A Goodfellows Brothers crew of about half a dozen workers plugged along on a state Department of Transportation road widening project on Saddle Road near the Army's Pohakuloa Training Area.

One worker, decked out in rain gear, said the crew was scheduled to work a 10-hour shift.

At the Waimea Community Center in South Kohala, about a dozen people had walked into the emergency shelter staffed by American Red Cross workers and made inquiries about everything from whether showers were available (they're not) or whether the shelter could house pets, said volunteer Balbi Brooks.

One man who had been booted from his Spencer Beach Park camp site showed up to use the restroom at the community center, and then slept in the parking lot.

A woman, who declined to give her name, was waiting for the county's Hele-On bus service to be restored, or for someone to give her a ride to Puna.

Dave Richardson, Red Cross volunteer, said "this is like any other day in Waimea except the wind is blowing west to east."

The island was getting the first punch of the weakening Flossie, which was barely holing on to its tropical storm status late this morning. By this afternoon, National Weather Service forecasters had lowered rainfall estimates for the island from up to 12 inches to 2 to 4 inches.

Earlier in the day, Hawaii island officials were preparing for the worst despite word that Tropical Storm Flossie was taking a slightly northern path as it reached Hawaiian waters around daybreak.

Hawaii island acting Civil Defense administrator Darryl Oliveira said he was told by National Weather Service officials that despite the somewhat rosier forecast, there was no change in the anticipated amount of rain or decrease in the strength of the winds headed toward the island.

"The most difficult thing is the track of this thing at this point and where it might make landfall — direct impact on the Big Island or whether it’s going to go in the (Alenuihaha) channel, or if it will just continue further north,” he said.

A steady rain fell overnight in Hilo but nothing residents from the town once dubbed the wettest in the United States were getting exciting about.

“That’s just Hilo,” Hoolulu Park Complex recreation specialist Dean Goya said of the rain as he and three American Red Cross volunteers sat in an empty Aunty Sally’s Luau Hale, the designated evacuation shelter for downtown Hilo, at 4:30 a.m.

The other eight shelters around Hawaii island: Pahoa Community Center, Laupahoehoe Charter School, Honokaa Sports Complex, Waimea Community Center, Hisaoka Gym in North Kohala, Mountain View School, Pahala Community Center, West Hawaii Civic Center.

Milan(Italy) Tornado: 12 Hurt After Twister Strikes
7/30/13

A tornado has ripped through a suburb of Milan, injuring 12 people and damaging buildings and vehicles.

Video shot by witnesses on their mobile phones captured the twister tearing through an industrial region in Grezzago, leaving a trail of devastation as it destroyed cars, overturned trucks and uprooted telegraph poles.

"We were inside there and a lorry crashed into the wall and came through it," said Stefano Grimoldi, who was caught up the carnage.

"Then all the windows broke and we couldn't understand what was happening."

He added: "Look there is no more roof, no more doors, there's nothing left."


"It came from over there - the next little town along in Pozzo D'Ada," explained witness Luca Mariani.

"Then it came through here, Grezzago, then it went towards Trezzo," added his friend Anthony Farchica.

 "It lasted, I'm not sure, the time it took, ten minutes or a quarter of an hour," they added.

Firemen, civil protection and other rescue services rushed to the scene.

Although no deaths have been reported there are reports of a dozen injuries.

China issues heat alert as 'hottest July' hits Shanghai

Temperatures in parts of China have hit record highs, prompting an emergency level-two nationwide heat alert for the first time.

In Shanghai, at least 10 people have died from heatstroke, as the city experiences its hottest July in 140 years, reports say.

Local journalists have demonstrated the heat by frying meat on the pavement.

The national heat alert covers nine provinces, including Anhui, Jiangsu, Hunan, Hubei, Shanghai and Chongqing.

According to figures from the Shanghai Meteorological bureau, Shanghai has seen 24 days with temperatures at or above 35C in July.

"It should be a new record since Shanghai had its own weather recording," said chief service officer Wu Rui.

"Also, in July of this year Shanghai reached 40.6 degrees Celsius, its highest ever temperature. So the highest temperature in July also broke a record."

More than 10 people in Shanghai have died after suffering from heatstroke, state-run news agency Xinhua said, citing health officials.

In a TV report, journalists from Shanghai TV said they successfully fried a pork chop on a marble slab outdoors in just 10 minutes.

The practice appears to have become popular, with photos of slices of bacon and fish being barbecued outdoors by the heat appearing online.

'Impossible'
 
The China Meteorological Administration issued the level two emergency heat alert on Tuesday.

"Anhui, Jiangsu, Hunan, Hubei, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Fujian, Chongqing and Shanghai meteorological bureaus should enter into emergency response on the basis of actual weather conditions," it said on its website.

It added that weather forecasts suggested that some areas south of the Yangtze river, including Chongqing, could experience temperatures of over 35C until 8 August.

It urged members of the public to avoid outdoor activities and to take protective measures against the heat.

"It's impossible for people to live without an air-conditioner," a resident was quoted by Reuters news agency as saying.

"Just going outside in this kind of temperate can roast people."

12 soldiers hospitalized after being hit by lightning in Colorado

Two of the 12 soldiers who were hurt when lightning struck near them during a training exercise in Colorado were in the hospital Friday.

Officials at Fort Carson said Thursday that one soldier was in serious condition and the other was in stable condition.

The ten other soldiers who were injured when lightning struck at the Army post near Colorado Springs on Wednesday afternoon were released from the hospital later that evening.

The soldiers had been in training but were heading toward shelter when the lightning struck.

Medics who were present for the training treated them until emergency responders arrived.

Storms cause damage across wide swath of Montana

Strong winds, possible tornados damage buildings, crops across wide swath of Montana


HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- Strong thunderstorms that moved across Montana left a trail of damage to crops and buildings along with downed trees and power outages.

The worst damage from Thursday's storm may have occurred in Gallatin County, where winds gusting up to 89 mph devastated wheat and barley crops that likely would have been harvested next week, Montana Grain Growers Vice President Matt Flikkema said.

"I've never seen crop damage to the extent we have here in the valley," Flikkema said Friday. "There are very little crops that will be harvested out of the area."

Flikkema said the damage could approach $50 million, even without taking into consideration what happened to 5,000 acres of potatoes.

Most of the crops are seed crops, meaning there could be a shortage of seed to plant next year, he said.

The storm started in southwestern Montana, where wind gusts up to 104 mph were recorded in Polaris, northwest of Dillon, causing major damage to homes and some trees, the National Weather Service reported.

Strong winds and possibly a tornado caused severe damage in Twin Bridges, uprooting trees and blowing the roof off at least one building.

A weather service representative was expected to visit Twin Bridges on Friday to determine if a tornado had touched down, said Steve DiGiovanna of Madison County Disaster and Emergency Services. DiGiovanna said he thought he saw a funnel cloud touch down.

Some falling trees damaged historic buildings, including the museum, and the roof was ripped off a veterinary clinic outside of Twin Bridges. An airport hangar was destroyed, a trailer was crushed by falling trees, and a grandstand at the Madison County Fairgrounds was flipped over and destroyed, he said.

Twin Bridges Mayor Tom Hyndman said the wind also uprooted a large spruce tree that is decorated every year for the town's Christmas Stroll.

Golf-ball sized hail fell across much of Belgrade and the northern part of Bozeman, the weather service reported.

NWS meteorologist Todd Chambers of Billings said the storm began in the southwestern part of the state Thursday afternoon and moved east, causing damage as far away as Billings.

The "long-lived, long-path" storm was unusual for this time of year, he said.

In eastern Montana, a funnel cloud was reported near Acton, north of Billings, and there was another unconfirmed report of a tornado in Broadview, Chambers said.

Golf-ball-sized hail was reported in parts of Billings, as well. A tree on the West End caught fire after being struck by lightning.

The storm knocked out power along its path and crews were still working Friday morning to restore service.

A second set of storms moved through the Helena. Over an inch of rain fell in a swath, moving northeast from an area near the city through eastern Chouteau County, the weather service said.

Dozens dead, stranded after flash floods in Afghanistan, Pakistan
8/5/13
http://news.yahoo.com/dozens-dead-stranded-flash-floods-afghanistan-pakistan-112222511.html

KABUL (Reuters) - Flash floods caused by unusually heavy rain across Afghanistan and Pakistan killed more than 160 people and stranded villagers in remote areas without shelter, food or power in one of South Asia's worst natural disasters this year, officials said on Monday.

Mountainous Afghanistan was the worst hit, with 61 people killed and about 500 traditional mud-brick homes washed away in more than a dozen villages in Sarobi, a rural district less than an hour from the national capital, Kabul, officials said.

In the remote eastern Afghan province of Nuristan at least 60 homes were destroyed across three districts, said provincial spokesman Mohammad Yusufi. No one was killed.

Authorities were unable to get aid to some badly affected villages by land as roads in the area are controlled by the Taliban, Yusufi added.

"We have asked the national government for help as have an overwhelming number of locals asking for assistance, but this is a Taliban-ridden area," Yusufi said.

At least 24 people were also killed in two other eastern border provinces, Khost and Nangarhar, local officials said. More than fifty homes and shops were destroyed and thousands of acres of farmland flooded.

In Pakistan monsoon rains claimed more than 80 lives, local media reported on Monday. Incidents of house collapse, drowning and electrocution all pushed up the death toll, said Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon.

In Karachi, the commercial capital and a southern port city that is home to 18 million people, poor neighborhoods were submerged waist-deep in water and many precincts suffered long power outages. Deaths were also reported in the north and west of the country.

'It's a real mess': Rescues and evacuations as deadly floods hit Missouri

Authorities conducted 25 rescues and evacuated 100 people from their homes overnight Thursday as more heavy rain fell on the saturated ground of Missouri, where the governor called out the National Guard to deal with deadly floods.

In the small city of Hollister, near the tourist destination of Branson and the Arkansas state line, the creek that runs through the center of town quickly rose 15 feet. No one was injured.

Farther north in Waynesville, a 4-year-old boy was killed and a woman believed to be his mother was missing after their car was swept from a tributary into a creek on Tuesday, the state highway patrol said.

Heavy rain on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday caused a rapid rise in the Gasconade River and forced authorities to close part of Interstate 44, which slices across the Show-Me state from St. Louis to Oklahoma.

Thunderstorms swept across the southern half of the state again early Thursday, and in central Missouri the Gasconade was expected to rise to 32 feet — 12 feet above flood stage.

“It's a real mess,” Sgt. Dan Crain, a spokesman for the Missouri Highway Patrol, told The Weather Channel. “We're encouraging folks to be really careful. When there’s water over the roads, don’t take the chance. Don’t take the risk. Please turn around.”

Gov. Jay Nixon on Wednesday declared a state of emergency and ordered 50 military police from the Missouri National Guard to help local authorities protect lives and property.

In Nashville, Tenn., fire crews responded to about 35 incidents involving people who needed to be rescued from their homes or vehicles after water overtook them, officials told NBC News. Only one person was injured, suffering a lacerated foot, officials said.

The water had mostly receded by Thursday afternoon, but authorities said they would remain on alert through the evening.

The annual mid west flooding. Been happening for likely hundreds if not thousands of years. It floods in that part of the country, and people freak out. It floods every year!  Roll Eyes

Same insanity as those clowns in California that build on hillsides, and they get mad when it rains and their house falls down in a landslide.

Some of these weather events are, I believe, "natural" order of things, and not natural disasters. It's only a disaster because it affects man's stuff. You build in river valleys and along big rivers, guess what? It WILL flood on occasion, and in flood plains, A LOT.

Heat wave kills 10 people in S. Korea

(ATTN: UPDATES with death roll rising to 10; all 10 died of heat stroke)

 SEOUL, Aug. 13 (Yonhap) -- A scorching heat wave has killed 10 people in South Korea this summer, the health and welfare ministry said Tuesday, as the weather agency issued a heat advisory and heat warning for most parts of the country.

 The heave wave has gripped South Korea for weeks as temperatures topped 33 C in Seoul and other major cities. Temperatures have reached a record 39.2 C in Gimhae, near South Korea's second-largest city of Busan, according to the Korea Meteorological Administration

There's been record temperatures around the world in recent years - no, it's not "global warming" obviously, but HAARP/chemtrails/weather modification, etc seem to be playing a big part. What it seems to be doing is causing draughts, killing off water animals in the waters, etc.

But Jesus Christ says in the end times that famines would be in divers places.

Cool Weather Lingers in the Southeast
8/16/13

It's been a cool summer across a large portion of the central and eastern U.S., and another push of cool air moved into many of these same areas over the past week.

The persistent cool weather is well-reflected in national extreme temperature statistics from the National Climatic Data Center. For the year to date, the total number of daily record lows across the country is outnumbering the number of record highs by about a 6-to-5 ratio, a stunning reversal from the dominant pattern in recent years.

Last year, during the hottest year on record stateside, daily record highs overwhelmed record lows by a whopping 10-to-1 margin, and since the start of 2010 that ratio is roughly two and a half record highs for every record low.

This summer, the unseasonably cool weather has focused on a swath from the Midwest to the Southeast.

Atlanta is a classic example, as those of us at weather.com headquarters can attest. While most other regions of the country have had at least one spell of triple-digit heat, or at least upper 90s, Georgia's capital has not gotten warmer than 92 degrees all year.

Cool August Temperature Intrusion Lingers in Southeast

The repeated cool spells east of the Rockies are in large part the result of a persistent tendency for the jet stream to dive southward across the eastern half of the country.

That pattern developed again this past week, dragging a cold front deep into the South and allowing a crisp, clean Canadian air mass to dominate the Midwest and Northeast with strong high pressure building in behind the front.

Record lows were set Wednesday morning in International Falls, Minn. (35), Stevens Point, Wisc. (36) and Springfield, Ill. (48), among other locations. The daytime high in Columbus, Ohio (70) was the coolest on record for August 14, as well.

A record low was set in Bradford, Pa. Thursday morning, dipping in to the upper 30s. Lows in the 40s were observed as far south as Boone, N.C.

While many areas will see temperatures rebound some into the weekend, parts of the Southeast and Appalachians will continue to see highs very atypical for August.

The cool air has oozed south along the eastern slopes of the southern Appalachians, pushing temperatures well below average for Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia.

This pattern, officially called "cold-air damming" but informally called the "wedge," is often associated with freezing rain and ice storms in the winter. It rarely occurs in early-mid August.

Major cities such as Atlanta and Charlotte may struggle to rise above the upper 60s or low 70s for highs through the weekend, along with widespread clouds and rain. The average high this time of year in Atlanta is 88 degrees.

You can imagine how cool it will be in the mountains. Forget about the shorts and tank tops if you're vacationing in North Carolina mountain towns like Boone and Beech Mountain, where highs could get stuck in the 60s under a canopy of clouds – in mid-August!
