A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.
An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).
The former British crown colony located off the southeast coast of China, comprised of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, and New Territories. The three sites were ceded to the British by the Chinese respectively in 1841, 1860, and 1898. Hong Kong reverted to China in July 1997. The name represents the Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese xianggang, fragrant port, from xiang, perfume and gang, port or harbor, with reference to its currents sweetened by fresh water from a river west of it.
A republic stretching from the Indian Ocean east to New Guinea, comprising six main islands: Java, Sumatra, Bali, Kalimantan (the Indonesian portion of the island of Borneo), Sulawesi (formerly known as the Celebes) and Irian Jaya (the western part of New Guinea). Its capital is Djakarta. The ethnic groups living there are largely Chinese, Arab, Eurasian, Indian, and Pakistani; 85% of the peoples are of the Islamic faith.
A parliamentary democracy with a constitutional monarch in southeast Asia, consisting of 11 states (West Malaysia) on the Malay Peninsula and two states (East Malaysia) on the island of BORNEO. It is also called the Federation of Malaysia. Its capital is Kuala Lumpur. Before 1963 it was the Union of Malaya. It reorganized in 1948 as the Federation of Malaya, becoming independent from British Malaya in 1957 and becoming Malaysia in 1963 as a federation of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore (which seceded in 1965). The form Malay- probably derives from the Tamil malay, mountain, with reference to its geography. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p715 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p329)
A body of water covering approximately one-fifth of the total ocean area of the earth, extending amidst Africa in the west, Australia in the east, Asia in the north, and Antarctica in the south.

Internet-based morbidity and mortality surveillance among Hurricane Katrina evacuees in Georgia. (3/195)INTRODUCTION: The Internet has revolutionized the way public health surveillance is conducted. Georgia has used it for notifiable disease reporting, electronic outbreak management, and early event detection. We used it in our public health response to the 125,000 Hurricane Katrina evacuees who came to Georgia. METHODS: We developed Internet-based surveillance forms for evacuation shelters and an Internet-based death registry. District epidemiologists, hospital-based physicians, and medical examiners/coroners electronically completed the forms. We analyzed these data and data from emergency departments used by the evacuees. RESULTS: Shelter residents and patients who visited emergency departments reported primarily chronic diseases. Among 33 evacuee deaths, only 2 were from infectious diseases, and 1 was indirectly related to the hurricane. CONCLUSION: The Internet was essential to collect health data from multiple locations, by many different people, and for multiple types of health encounters during Georgia's Hurricane Katrina public health response.

Hurricane Katrina: impact on cardiac surgery case volume and outcomes. (5/195)Hurricane Katrina produced a surge of patient referrals to our facility for cardiac surgery. We sought to determine the impact of this abrupt volume change on operative outcomes. Using our cardiac surgery database, which is part of the Department of Veterans Affairs' Continuous Improvement in Cardiac Surgery Program, we compared procedural outcomes for all cardiac operations that were performed in the year before the hurricane (Year A, 29 August 2004-28 August 2005) and the year after (Year B, 30 August 2005-29 August 2006). Mortality was examined as unadjusted rates and as risk-adjusted observed-to-expected ratios. We identified 433 cardiac surgery cases: 143 (33%) from Year A and 290 (67%) from Year B. The operative mortality rate was 2.8% during Year A (observed-to-expected ratio, 0.4) and 2.8% during Year B (observed-to-expected ratio, 0.6) (P = 0.9). We identified several factors that enabled our institution to accommodate the increase in surgical volume during the study period. We conclude that, although Hurricane Katrina caused a sudden, dramatic increase in the number of cardiac operations that were performed at our facility, good surgical outcomes were maintained.

Health of Medicare Advantage plan enrollees at 1 year after Hurricane Katrina. (7/195)OBJECTIVE: To assess the effects of Hurricane Katrina on mortality, morbidity, disease prevalence, and service utilization during 1 year in a cohort of 20,612 older adults who were living in New Orleans, Louisiana, before the disaster and who were enrolled in a managed care organization (MCO). STUDY DESIGN: Observational study comparing mortality, morbidity, and service use for 1 year before and after Hurricane Katrina, augmented by a stratified random sample of 303 enrollees who participated in a telephone survey after Hurricane Katrina. METHODS: Sources of data for health and service use were MCO claims. Mortality was based on reports to the MCO from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services; morbidity was measured using adjusted clinical groups case-mix methods derived from diagnoses in ambulatory and hospital claims data. RESULTS: Mortality in the year following Hurricane Katrina was not significantly elevated (4.3% before vs 4.9% after the hurricane). However, overall morbidity increased by 12.6% (P <.001) compared with a 3.4% increase among a national sample of Medicare managed care enrollees. Nonwhite subjects from Orleans Parish experienced a morbidity increase of 15.9% (P <.001). The prevalence of numerous treated medical conditions increased, and emergency department visits and hospitalizations remained significantly elevated during the year. CONCLUSIONS: The enormous health burden experienced by older individuals and the disruptions in service utilization reveal the long-term effects of Hurricane Katrina on this vulnerable population. Although quick rebuilding of the provider network may have attenuated more severe health outcomes for this managed care population, new policies must be introduced to deal with the health consequences of a major disaster.

Katrina and the Thai Tsunami - water quality and public health aspects mitigation and research needs. (8/195)The South East Asian Tsunami in Thailand and Hurricane Katrina in the United States were natural disasters of different origin but of similar destruction and response. Both disasters exhibited synonymous health outcomes and similar structural damage from large surges of water, waves, and flooding. A systematic discussion and comparison of the disasters in Thailand and the Gulf Coast considers both calamities to be similar types of disaster in different coastal locations. Thus valuable comparisons can be made for improvements in response, preparedness and mitigation. Research needs are discussed and recommendations made regarding potential methologies. Recommendations are made to: (1) improve disaster response time in terms of needs assessments for public health and environmental data collection; (2) develop an access-oriented data sharing policy; and (3) prioritize natural geomorphic structures such as barrier islands, mangroves, and wetlands to help reduce the scale of future natural disasters. Based on the experiences gained opportunities to enhance disaster preparedness through research are presented. (+info)
View Wind Speed Probabilities-based Tropical Cyclone Danger Graphic - National Weather Service
The Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch (TAFB) is providing a Tropical Cyclone Danger Area graphic based on the 34-kt wind speed probabilities through 72-hours from the latest tropical cyclone advisory for an active tropical cyclone. The graphic outlines avoidance areas using the 10% and 50% 34-kt wind speed probability contours from the latest tropical cyclone advisory issuances for both the Atlantic and East Pacific basins (Figures 1 and 2). The current Tropical Cyclone Danger Area graphic utilizes the mariners 1-2-3 rule to outline avoidance areas through 72 hours for active tropical cyclones. Feedback from users indicated that the use of the 1-2-3 methodology has led to over-warned large avoidance areas. The 1-2-3 methodology assumes an average forecast track error of 100 nmi at Day 1, 200 nmi at Day 2 and 300 nmi at Day 3 rule (Figure 3). These values are well above the most recent 10-year averaged forecast track errors of 50 nmi at Day 1, 85 nmi at Day 2 and 120 nmi at Day 3 ...
Rebuilding Coastal Mississippi Following Hurricane Katrina: A Spatial by Joanne Rosalie Stevenson
Governments and individuals have already spent several billion dollars, countless hours, political and emotional resources on recovery from Hurricane Katrina. Despite this major investment in the recovery on the U.S. Gulf Coast, there is little understanding of what actually affects a housing unit or communitys ability to recover from a disaster or what determines the rate of recovery in time. This study uses building permits issued in the three coastal counties of Mississippi following Hurricane Katrina to track recovery of the built environment. This study provides insight into how recovery is progressing by investigating whether recovery is occurring evenly across the Gulf Coast or whether there are clusters of recovery. This study also demonstrates how damage caused by the storm is affecting the distribution of rebuilding in space and time, and the influence of federal aid on recovery through FEMA grants and SBA disaster loans. This in-depth analysis of the building permit data uses several

This paper examined the effect of Hurricane Katrina on childrens access to personal healthcare providers and evaluated the use of propensity score methods to compare a nationally representative sample of children, as a proxy for an unexposed group, with a smaller exposed sample. 2007 data from the Gulf Coast Child and Family Health (G-CAFH) Study, a longitudinal cohort of households displaced or greatly impacted by Hurricane Katrina, were matched with 2007 National Survey of Childrens Health (NSCH) data using propensity score techniques. Propensity scores were created using poverty level, household educational attainment, and race/ethnicity, with and without the addition of child age and gender. The outcome was defined as having a personal healthcare provider. Additional confounders (household structure, neighborhood safety, health and insurance status) were also examined. All covariates except gender differed significantly between the exposed (G-CAFH) and unexposed (NSCH) samples. Fewer G-CAFH

Hurricane Katrina | Energy Trends Insider
As Hurricane Sandy bears down on the East Coast, a lot of prognosticators are offering up predictions for what it means for gasoline prices in that market. I thought it might be of interest to note the differences in Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Katrina concerning the oil and gas markets.. Hurricane Sandy has already reduced refining capacity in the Northeast, and the possibility exists of extended outages if any of these refineries take significant damage from the hurricane. Gasoline and heating oil inventories in the area were already very low, and this increases the chances of sharp gasoline spikes across the area. However, these spikes are expected to be short-lived and localized, as the area also receives gasoline from Europe and from the Colonial Pipeline, which brings supplies to the East Coast from the Gulf Coast. As long as refinery outages are not prolonged, the gasoline markets should return to normally fairly quickly. However, people would be wise to make sure their cars are topped ...
Wavelet Lag Regression Analysis of Atlantic Tropical Cyclones - Tropical Cyclones
Increases in Atlantic tropical cyclone intensity have been related to increases in Atlantic sea surface temperature (SST), and Elsner (2007) has shown that it is likely to be rising global temperatures that drive the increases in both cyclone intensity and Atlantic SST. However, the nature of the climate relationships to tropical cyclones is likely to be complex, and certainly includes oceanic and atmospheric circulation patterns that operate on ocean basic scales. Significant but weak. J.B. Elsner and T.H.

Tropical Storm Cindys Impact on Central Alabama
The National Hurricane Center identified an area of interest for possible tropical development back on June 13th. The area of interest was in the western Caribbean or Central America off the coast of Mexico and Belize. By June 19th, statements were initiated for Potential Tropical Cyclone Three in the south central Gulf of Mexico. Tropical Storm Cindy formed the afternoon of June 20th, 360 miles southeast of Galveston, Texas. Tropical Storm Cindy eventually made landfall on the Louisiana Coast very close to the Texas and Louisiana state line. Cindy moved north and northeast across Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky before losing its tropical characteristics. Cindy became Post Tropical Cyclone Cindy over central Kentucky on June 23rd. Very heavy rainfall accompanied Cindy, but was located in two distinct areas. One area was very close to the center over Texas and Louisiana. The second was much larger and several hundreds miles to the east. This rain area was produced by a long southerly ...
Christine Quinn Sold Out: Hurricane Sandy - Bellevue, NYU, and Coler Hospital Evacuations - Political Accountability
Who is politically accountable for the failure of the emergency management plan in response to Hurricane Sandy that lead to infrastructure failure at New York City hospitals ?. Following the infrastructure failure of critical hospitals in New York City because of flooding and storm surge associated with Hurricane Sandy and related power failures, some healthcare activists began to demand answers for the failure of New York Citys emergency management planning. The fault does not lie with the doctors and medical staff at the impacted hospitals ; rather, the politicians in charge of the citys emergency management plan must account for this irresponsible and dangerous situation. How could it be that New York Citys resources would prioritise reopening business when critical hospitals could be left in the dark ? One activist has posted a new YouTube video requesting political accountability for the dangerous risks posed to public health by Mayor Michael Bloombergs lack of real emergency ...

Hurricane Sandy Leads NYC Mayor Bloomberg to Endorse Obama | Hollywood Reporter
As New York and its surrounding areas grapple with the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has made a suprise announcement and endorsed Barack Obama for president, saying the incumbent is the best choice to tackle climate change.. The devastation that Hurricane Sandy brought to New York City and much of the Northeast -- in lost lives, lost homes and lost business -- brought the stakes of Tuesdays presidential election into sharp relief, Bloomberg, a political independent who backed neither candidate in the 2008 election, writes in an op-ed posted on Thursday to Bloomberg View.. Bloomberg says he suspects that climate change is to blame for the severity of the Sandy, which has claimed 38 lives in New York City alone and caused billions of dollars in damage. And while he has offered sharp criticism of both candidates in the past -- particularly on the topic gun control, an issue brought into sharp focus after the mass-shooting at a Colorado screening of The Dark ...
Abstract: GEOMORPHIC IMPACT OF HURRICANE SANDY ON STATEN ISLAND, NY (Northeastern Section - 48th Annual Meeting (18-20 March...
Whereas hurricane Irene was primarily a rain event for Staten Island, Sandy was a storm surge event. In both cases the wind damage was small compared to most hurricanes. Hurricane Sandy is responsible for 43 deaths in NYC of which 53 % came from Staten Island. It is also responsible for massive destruction in the coastal region of Staten Island, NY. In natural settings, tidal marshes, bays, estuaries, coastal dune fields, and barrier islands dissipate the storms energy. In the New York area, marshes and bays, like Jamaica Bay, act as a natural sponge to absorb the energy of the wind and storm surge. Unfortunately, in New York, and on the eastern shore of Staten Island, like many urban areas, we have hardscaped the sponge with roads, parking lots, housing developments, stores, hospitals, schools, bridges, trains and all elements of urbanization. This comes at a cost when these structures absorb the energy. There is a place for seawalls, barriers, storm doors and other engineering marvels. ...

Hurricane Safety Tips and Resources
Hurricanes are among natures most powerful and destructive phenomena. On average, 12 tropical storms, 6 of which become hurricanes form over the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, or Gulf of Mexico during the hurricane season which runs from June 1 to November 30 each year. In the Central Pacific Ocean, an average of 3 tropical storms, 2 of which become hurricanes form or move over the area during the hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30 each year. Guam, the Northern Marianas and Micronesia experience typhoons all year round but the main season in July through November with a peak from mid-August to mid-September. Over a typical 2-year period, the U.S. coastline is struck by an average of 3 hurricanes, 1 of which is classified as a major hurricane (winds of 111 mph or greater). By knowing what actions to take before the hurricane season begins, when a hurricane approaches, and when the storm is in your area, as well as what to do after a hurricane leaves your area, you can ...

Stories from Hurricane Katrina
The LSU SVM Veterinary Teaching Hospital operated its intensive care unit 24/7 at near capacity and, at times, over capacity to accommodate animals affected by Hurricane Katrina. A secondary ICU was set up to handle these additional cases, many of which the hospital treated at its own expense. Ward 1 was designated a secondary or step-down ward for hurricane pets. The creation of a secondary ward became necessary when the small animal ICU reached capacity. This step-down ward (so called because it provided care one step below that offered in the ICU) was staffed by volunteer veterinarians and technicians from all across the country and was run by Dr. Mark Neer, then small animal section chief. The Hospitals small animal ICU has 38 cages and six runs for large dogs; the secondary ward has 24 cages. The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina was felt for several weeks rather than days, and at the height of the disaster, all of the hospitals cages were full. The ICU normally sees about 12 cases each day. ...
Fertilizer industry deals with tropical storm impacts but bracing for stronger Hurricane Laura | ICIS

1926 Atlantic hurricane season - Wikipedia
The 1926 Atlantic hurricane season featured the highest number of major hurricanes at the time. At least eleven tropical cyclones developed during the season, all of which intensified into a tropical storm and eight further strengthened into hurricanes. Six hurricanes deepened into a major hurricane, which is Category 3 or higher on the modern-day Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. The first system, the Nassau hurricane, developed near the Lesser Antilles on July 22. Moving west-northwest for much of its duration, the storm struck or brush several islands of the Lesser and Greater Antilles. However, the Bahamas later received greater impact. At least 287 deaths and $7.85 million (1926 USD) in damage was attributed to this hurricane. The next cyclone primarily effected mariners in and around the Maritimes of Canada, with boating accidents and drownings resulting in between 55 and 58 fatalities. In late August, the third hurricane brought widespread impact to the Gulf Coast of the United States, ...
Emergency preparedness checklist for perfect storm Hurricane Sandy - Heres what you need to get NOW » Alex Jones Infowars:...
Even if you dont leave nearby, this storm can serve as an important reminder: We must ALL be prepared for unexpected events, or we can easily be caught empty-handed. A long-lasting event: 2-3 days of being hammered by Mother Nature Hurricane Sandy is not some simple hurricane that blows through in one night and then is over. Its going to be a long-lasting event, two to three days of impact for a lot of people, said James Franklin of the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Wind damage, widespread power outages, heavy rainfall, inland flooding and somebody is going to get a significant surge event. Given that it usually takes another 2-3 days for cleaning up city streets after a massive snowfall event, this means the following: !! You need to have a 6-day food and water supply ready right now! !! Thats 3 days for the storm and 3 days for cleanup. And thats if nothing else goes terribly wrong. In a worst case scenario, this could extend to 7 - 10 days in some of the harder-hit areas. Local ...
Tropical Cyclone Laurence Menaces Northern Australia - Redorbit
Laurence is still a tropical cyclone even though the storm has made landfall in northern West Australia and is moving over land. The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite noticed some powerful and high thunderstorms in Laurence before he made landfall, and the storm is still maintaining intensity for now, but that will wane as the storm continues to interact with the friction caused by traveling over land.. The TRMM satellite is a joint mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) designed to monitor and study tropical rainfall. When the TRMM satellite passed overhead on 14 December 2009 at 2329 UTC getting rainfall data Tropical Cyclone Laurence was close to hurricane strength.

SVS: Hurricane Katrina Sea Surface Temperature
This visualization shows the cold water trail left by Hurricane Katrina. The data is from August 23 through 30, 2005. The colors on the ocean represent the sea surface temperatures, and satellite images of the hurricane clouds are laid over the temperatures to clearly show the hurricane positions. Orange and red depict regions that are 82 degrees F and higher, where the ocean is warm enough for hurricanes to form. Hurricane winds are sustained by the heat energy of the ocean, so the ocean is cooled as the hurricane passes and the energy is extracted to power the winds. The sea surface temperatures are 3-day moving averages based on the AMSR-E instrument on the Aqua satellite, while the cloud images were taken by the Imager on the GOES-12 satellite.
Climate Change and Tropical Cyclones (Yet Again) « RealClimate

Hurricane Sandy - Forecast and Documentation of Coastal Change
As Hurricane Sandy moved northward along the U.S. Atlantic coast in October 2012, U.S. Geological Survey scientists worked to determine where and how the storms waves and surge might dramatically reshape the beaches and dunes that stand between the storm and coastal developments. Through a complex modeling process that uses coastal elevations, wave forecasts, and potential storm surge, they predicted coastal change hazards, such as shoreline and dune erosion, that might be expected during a Sandy landfall.. The coastal change forecast model predicts the probability of where and how sand dunes along the coast will be impacted by water levels during a storm. This includes the combined effect of surge and wave runup. The color band closest to the shoreline is the probability of dune erosion, the middle color band is the probability that sand dunes will be overtopped by waves during the storm, and the outer color band is the probability that the sand dunes will be completely inundated/flooded. The ...

Man-Made Storm Surges For Agenda 21 Goals? 10-7-16 Storm surge - storm surge - storm surge - everywhere you turn its storm surge. No escaping it. To the point of being a chant. Without question storm-surge hype has been taken to a whole new level this week with the massively hyped mysterious-acting Hurricane Matthew. As evidenced by the posted article below and video [see post], the hype has now even become a national educational campaign -- How is it that until only relatively recently no one had ever heard of a storm surge. Hurricanes had come and gone over the past decades but never was there any mention of any thing called a storm surge...or the tsunami-like after effects. But now suddenly storm surges up to 20 feet should be considered as normally occurring with a hurricane - the people of planet earth are told -- Never mind that this sort of thing never happened before though - they are going ...

2019 North Indian Ocean cyclone season - Wikipedia
The season had eight cyclonic storms, six very severe cyclonic storms and one super cyclonic storm, becoming exceptionally active. Amid a weak El Niño event, the seasons first named storm, Pabuk, entered the basin on January 4, becoming the earliest-forming cyclonic storm of the North Indian Ocean on record, tying with the 2014 season. The second cyclonic storm of the season, Fani, formed on April 26. Fani became an extremely severe cyclonic storm on April 30, reaching the equivalent of Category 4 status on the Saffir-Simpson scale, then made landfall in India killing 89 people between Odisha and Bangladesh; Fani caused $8.1 billion in damage. In early June, a strong pulse of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) led to the development of the third cyclonic storm, Vayu, which formed June 10 in the Arabian Sea near the Maldives. The storm subsequently intensified into a very severe cyclonic storm on June 12, after moving northwestward towards northwestern India and Pakistan. No tropical cyclones ...

Hurricane Sandy reached the US on October 29 and left more than seven million people without power as it tore through the East Coast.. The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission said it was monitoring impacts from the hurricane on nuclear power plants in the north-eastern US, including an alert declared at Exelon Corps Oyster Creek plant in New Jersey.. The plant, currently in a regularly scheduled outage, declared the alert due to water exceeding high water level criteria in the plants water intake structure.. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority in New York cut power to some subway tunnels in lower Manhattan after tracks were flooded and New York Universitys Tisch Hospital was forced to evacuate 200 patients after a backup generator failed..

Scientists Study Behavior of Tropical Storm Lionrock as it Turns Toward Japan | Ocean Climate Stations
As residents in Japan prepare for Tropical Storm Lionrock today, scientists at NOAA and the University of Washingtons Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean (JISAO) study the behavior of the storm. Lionrock is expected to make landfall across northern Japan, affecting many highly populated areas, including Fukushima and other areas impacted by the 2011 tsunami.. With funding awarded for research after Super Storm Sandy caused massive damage to the east coast of the US, NOAA and JISAO scientists aim to improve storm track models to better predict where storms will go, and how powerful they might become. To achieve this, they are using data from the NOAA Kuroshio Extension Observatory (KEO), along with model simulations performed at NOAAs Environmental Modeling Center. KEO is a moored buoy, located off the coast of Japan, where it is frequently in the path of storms and tropical cyclones. When Lionrock passed over KEO on Monday, wind gusts were recorded at over 81mph, and ...
Post-Disaster Investigation | Hurricane Katrina
The Office of Public Health Region IX covers northeastern Louisiana, including Livingston, St. Helena, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, and Washington Parishes. The total population served in this Region is about 438,000. Almost all of the water supply in the region is from groundwater sources. Regarding municipal drinking water treatment in the region, plants went back online fairly quickly. Facilities dosed high levels of chlorine until microbiological analyses (sampled at SDWA sites) were negative. Interviews with the Regional Epidemiologist and Regional Sanitarian confirmed that bottled water was an essential part of the response in the region. Also, some facilities on the boil water order list no longer exist as a result of massive hurricane-related damage. A large proportion of the population relies on private wells for drinking water supply. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) put into place mobile laboratories soon after Hurricane Katrina but these were removed before Hurricane Rita struck ...
Wetlands Restoration Not a Panacea for Louisiana Coast
As a hurricane moves toward land, onshore winds push water in front of the storm and cause water levels to rise as the storm makes landfall. This storm surge can range from several to 30-plus feet and, along with the waves that accompany the storm, inflict the greatest damage to infrastructure, Young said. Wetlands can dampen the effect of storm surge, the problem is that scientists dont fully understand the impact that adding wetlands might have. In order to predict the impact of wetlands on storm surge, you need to have good storm surge data to understand what happened in the past. But we simply dont have that data, Young said. Its one of the gaping holes that we have in understanding whats going on at the coast. The problem is that storm surge is hard to measure. You cant just go out there and stand with a stick and measure a 30-foot storm surge. Theres also a tremendous amount of variability in storm surge height along the shore, variability that isnt reflected in current storm ...
Evidence of Climate Variability and Tropical Cyclone Activity from Dia by Emily R. Nodine
Estuaries are dynamic on many spatial and temporal scales. Distinguishing effects of unpredictable events from cyclical patterns can be challenging but important to predict the influence of press and pulse drivers in the face of climate change. Diatom assemblages respond rapidly to changing environmental conditions and characterize change on multiple time scales. The goals of this research were to 1) characterize diatom assemblages in the Charlotte Harbor watershed, their relationships with water quality parameters, and how they change in response to climate; and 2) use assemblages in sediment cores to interpret past climate changes and tropical cyclone activity. Diatom assemblages had strong relationships with salinity and nutrient concentrations, and a quantitative tool was developed to reconstruct past values of these parameters. Assemblages were stable between the wet and dry seasons, and were more similar to each other than to assemblages found following a tropical cyclone. Diatom assemblages

Tropical Weather Discussion Issued: Wednesday, August 20, 2008 540 am EDT Tropical Storm Fay has turned slowly northward after finally reaching the east-central Florida coast early this morning. The center, however, remains just inland along the coast north of Melbourne and in fact may not emerge over the Atlantic until this afternoon when Fay is expected to move north of the Cape Canaveral area. Most of the global models are now indicating a tighter turn to the northwest and then a sharper westward jog across North Florida after late Thursday and into the northeastern Gulf of Mexico by Friday night or Saturday. In fact, the GFS and European models forecast that Fay will track across the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico this weekend and possibly come ashore early next week. The GFDL and HWRF models are exceptions to this scenario ...

Break Up Of New Orleans Households After Katrina - Redorbit
How well a family recovers from a natural catastrophe may be tied to the households pre-disaster make up and socio-economic status. In a recent study, Dr. Michael Rendall of the RAND Corporation compared the number of households in New Orleans, LA that broke up following Hurricane Katrina to the national rate of household break-ups over an equivalent period. An estimated 1.3 million people fled the Gulf Coast during that emergency in 2005 the largest urban evacuation America has ever seen. The results are published today in the Journal of Marriage and Family.. Relying on survey data from the RAND Corps Displaced New Orleans Residents Pilot Study and a comparable national study, Rendall reports that a year after the hurricane the incidence of household breakup associated with post-hurricane displacement remained more than double the national rate over the same period. His comparison of living arrangements before and after Katrina indicates that 50% of grown children who were living with ...

A Shrinking New Orleans Mayor Says Infrastructure Cant Support Previous Population By Ceci Connolly and Manuel Roig-Franzia Washington Post Staff Writers Wednesday, October 26, 2005; A02 NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 25 -- Mayor C. Ray Nagin, who has vowed to resurrect his crippled city, conceded Tuesday that New Orleans will shrink to nearly half its pre-hurricane population and will have to make do with one-third of its previous budget. With as many as 250,000 homes uninhabitable and some neighborhoods still lacking basic services, Nagin estimated the citys shattered infrastructure could support 250,000 to 300,000 residents over the next year, compared with the half a million people who lived here before Hurricane Katrina struck Aug. 29. ******************** In a city that was 67 percent African American, Nagin won by dominating the vote in majority white districts.

Ocean City Maryland News | OC MD Newspapers | Maryland Coast Dispatch » Survey Probes Psychological Impact Of Storm Evacuations
OCEAN CITY - A University of Pennsylvania study is attempting to delve into the psychological aspects of evacuating prior to predicted hurricanes, with a particular focus on Hurricane Irene, which forced a mandatory evacuation of Ocean City last August.. The study, led by Dr. Melissa Hunt, is essentially a continuation of a similar effort conducted following Hurricane Katrina and is attempting to apply the lessons learned from that study to the evacuations from Irene. The study is focusing on the decisions by residents in coastal areas to evacuate or not evacuate during Hurricane Irene, with a particular interest in the issue of a pet or pets in the house as it relates to an evacuation decision.. According to Hunt, prior to Hurricane Katrina, owning a pet was believed to be among the biggest factors in determining whether to evacuate. During that catastrophic storm, many residents in the coastal Gulf areas were forced to leave their pets behind or forcibly separated from their pets when they ...

Galveston, Texas - Wikipedia
Galveston has been home to many important figures in Texas and U.S. history. During the islands earliest history it became the domain of Jean Lafitte, the famed pirate and American hero of the War of 1812. Richard Bache, Jr. who represented Galveston in the Senate of the Second Texas Legislature in 1847 and assisted in drawing up the Constitution of 1845. He was also the grandson of Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America and Deborah Read. In 1886, the African-American Galveston civil rights leader Norris Wright Cuney rose to become the head of the Texas Republican Party and one of the most important Southern black leaders of the century. Noted portrait and landscape artist Verner Moore White moved from Galveston the day before the 1900 hurricane. While he survived, his studio and much of his portfolio were destroyed. A survivor of the hurricane was the Hollywood director King Vidor, who made his directing debut in 1913 with the film Hurricane ...
Katrina and the Battered Statist Syndrome | Strike-The-Root: A Journal Of Liberty
It has already been shown by other columnists on STR who should bear responsibility (but doesnt) for the disaster in New Orleans following hurricane Katrina. This is all a rather unique situation, since columnists worldwide seem to agree that government is responsible, even though most stress it is responsible only for the failure to supply enough help in time. So what we have here is actually a global agreement that government is to blame! Yet, just like the abused spouse who wishes to believe in her husband despite endless betrayals and beatings, the non-root-striking columnists keep returning to a dependence on government. After blaming government for not doing enough quickly enough in New Orleans , the very same columnists, along with people in general, demanded that government rebuild the city no matter the cost. (Of course, government never hesitates to increase its spending.) It seems there is no end to how much beating these people can take (Katrina is, as we know, only the last of a ...

Equitable and Just Hurricane and Disaster Preparedness Amid COVID-19 - Center for American Progress
The disproportionate impact of Hurricane Katrina on low-income Black residents stemmed largely from the combination of racial injustices and economic inequalities embedded in pre-hurricane policies and disaster preparations as well as in the treatment of vulnerable communities during the hurricane and its aftermath. For example, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers used a flawed design, outdated data, and poor-quality materials to build the levees surrounding the citys Black and low-income communities to save money. The city government responsible for levee maintenance failed to repair many dilapidated levees, despite warnings.50 In addition, research has shown that Black residents were less likely than white residents to have evacuated during the storm because they could not afford to do so, and the state, federal, and local governments were slow to help evacuate those in need.51 And Black survivors of Katrina have since reported higher rates of displacement from their communities, unemployment, ...

August, 2015 | Cuba Travel Surge
Oops-I guess I got distracted again. When I write about Cuba, a word or sentence can scatter my mind in many directions. Im going to focus on Katrina. The next day after I heard about her on the radio, she developed into Tropical Storm Katrina, then morphed into Hurricane Katrina. Her eye veered north of us and passed right over Miami, scoring a bulls-eye hit on the building that housed the National Hurricane Center. South Florida suffered a lot of destruction, and about a dozen people were killed. The Cubans in our camp were very concerned, because most of them had relatives in Miami. From there Katrina headed northwest across the Gulf, became a Category 5 hurricane, and was even more destructive, especially in coastal Louisiana and Mississippi. Most of you know the details of what happened there. But Ill bet very few of you know what happened after that involving Cuba, the U.S., and Katrina.

Ron Paul: DC Miser, Galveston Porkmeister - Mother Jones
Welcome to Galveston County GOP headquarters.Over the years, being Ron Paul has not gotten any easier. Take, for example, the window of the Galveston County GOP headquarters, a squat building along Interstate 45 south of Houston, where a campaign sign reads, Ron Paul: The Taxpayers Best Friend. Less than a block away is the site of a future Park and Ride facility, courtesy of Pauls $750,000 earmark-never mind that Paul claims to oppose public transportation. Of course, Paul isnt entirely a hypocrite. He has long advocated privatizing NASA, a major employer in Galveston County. Obama is now doing just that; the only problem is that theres another sign in the window of GOP headquarters, reading: Save NASA, Stop Obama.. For Pauls would-be successors, inhabiting his political wheelhouse is about as desirable as living on Saturn. None of the Texas Republicans vying to replace him in Congress-school administrator John Gay, politically connected attorney Michael Truncale, and state legislator ...
How climate change affects Canadas hurricane risk
Although other storms have hit this African coast in the past, the storm track for cyclone Idai is fairly rare. Warmer-than-usual sea-surface temperatures were directly linked to the unusually high number of five storms near Madagascar and Mozambique in 2000, including tropical cyclone Eline. Warmer ocean temperatures could also be behind the intensity of cyclone Idai, as the temperature of the Indian Ocean is 2 C to 3 C above the long-term average.. Climate change and ocean warming may be linked to the increasing intensity of storms making landfall and to the development of strong hurricanes reaching places not affected in recent history. These regions may not be prepared with the coastal infrastructure to withstand the extreme forces of these storms.. The role of climate change. Scientists are working to improve their forecasts for hurricane winds and waves, and research on ocean and atmosphere interactions is boosting our understanding of the relationship between climate and the formation of ...
Desert Bayou (2007) - Rotten Tomatoes
Filmmaker Alex LeMay explores the plight of 600 African-Americans who were unwittingly airlifted into the predominantly Caucasian state of Utah in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in this documentary exploring the aftermath of one of the worst natural and humanitarian disasters in American history. When the water settled on New Orleans, the disaster had only begun. Now, as LeMay allows evacuees of Hurricane Katrina to tell their remarkable stories in their own words, viewers are invited to explore whether two radically different cultures can truly come together in their most desperate hour, or whether social differences will simply prove too difficult to overcome. Additional candid interviews with military, political, and religious leaders, as well as influential figures from both communities, paint a vivid picture of the struggle for survival as the misplaced New Orleans citizens struggle to come to terms with their loss, and the rising tides of racism, religion, and politics ...

Officials plan to collect washed-up Sargassum from Galveston beaches, bale it and incorporate the compressed material into the sand dune to add protective volume and spur natural dune vegetation, according to Jens Figlus of Texas A&M University at Galveston, the project manager. For now, the Sargassum-enhanced dunes should provide immediate protection against storm surges and wave impact, according to the proposal presented to the university for review.
Hurricane Sally worries Mississippi gator ranch | International - Times of India Videos
As Sallys outer bands reached the Gulf Coast and landfall imminent, the manager of an alligator ranch in Moss Point, Mississippi, was hoping he wouldnt have to live a repeat of what happened at the gator farm during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Thats when about 250 alligators escaped their enclosures as Katrinas storm surge pushed 12 feet of water over the gator farm grounds, lifting the reptiles over fences surrounding their enclosures - and then pulling them back toward the Gulf of Mexico as the tide receded after the storm passed. Tim Parker, the manager of Gulf Coast Gator Ranch & Tours who took over after Katrina, said many of the washed away gators eventually landed in protected wetlands south of Moss Point, a boon for the gators but a loss of revenue for the company.
A sickening situation: By ignoring formaldehyde levels in trailers, FEMA again betrayed thousands of hurricane victims -...
By ignoring formaldehyde levels in trailers, FEMA again betrayed thousands of hurricane victims By ignoring formaldehyde levels in trailers, FEMA again betrayed thousands of hurricane victims. Two years later, the insults and depredations visited on the victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita by the very agency that is supposed to be help them seem to have no end. Last week, documents subpoenaed by a congressional committee revealed that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has managed to reach a new low, even by its deplorable standards. What the documents disclosed was that for more than a year, FEMA attorneys, apparently more concerned about legal liabilities than about protecting the health of thousands of hurricane victims, discouraged agency officials from investigating reports of dangerous levels of formaldehyde in trailers housing the victims. At the hearing, after listening to moving reports from three trailer occupants whose families attributed their illnesses to formaldehyde, both

Hurricane Katrina - Our Experiences. note: Bradshaw and Slonsky are paramedics frorm California that were attending the EMS conference in New Orleans. Larry Bradsahw is the chief shop steward, Paramedic Chapter, SEIU Local 790; and Lorrie Beth Slonsky is steward, Paramedic Chapter, SEIU Local 790.[California]. Two days after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, the Walgreens store at the corner of Royal and Iberville streets remained locked. The dairy display case was clearly visible through the widows. It was now 48 hours without electricity, running water, plumbing. The milk, yogurt, and cheeses were beginning to spoil in the 90-degree heat. The owners and managers had locked up the food, water, pampers, and prescriptions and fled the City. Outside Walgreens windows, residents and tourists grew increasingly thirsty and hungry.. The much-promised federal, state and local aid never materialized and the windows at Walgreens gave way to the looters. There was an alternative. The cops could ...
Sonic Overload Radio: September 2012
Plenty to talk about this week, right from the outset-Republican Congressman Todd Akin, whos running for Senator in Missouri, shows some tremendous ignorance about womens reproductive systems, as well as regressive viewpoints on the matter of reproductive choice and the latter applies quite a few other Republicans, as well. Meanwhile, their white pride rally, uh, convention happens in Tampa this week and it appears as though theyve dodged a bullet as tropical storm Isaac will be missing them. I guess Gods looking out for them, unlike those heathen in New Orleans. I recall that when Hurricane Katrina hit that city, Pat Robertson said it was Gods punishment for abortion. Unfortunately, as I type this, it looks like New Orleans is going to get nailed by this storm, as well. So, yeah, I talk about politics a little more this week, but youll be happy to know it still doesnt dominate the show-but I might as well take advantage of my punk rock soapbox ...

Claim: East coast Monster hurricanes linked to previous warm periods, current data suggests otherwise | Watts Up With That?
Monster hurricanes reached US Northeast during prehistoric periods of ocean warming. Joint release: AGU, WHOI, NSF. American Geophysical Union. WASHINGTON, D.C. - Intense hurricanes possibly more powerful than any storms New England has experienced in recorded history frequently pounded the region during the first millennium, from the peak of the Roman Empire into the height of the Middle Ages, according to a new study. The findings could have implications for the intensity and frequency of hurricanes that the U.S. East and Gulf coasts could experience as ocean temperatures increase as a result of climate change, according to the studys authors.. A new record of sediment deposits from Cape Cod, Mass., show evidence that 23 severe hurricanes hit New England between the years 250 and 1150, the equivalent of a severe storm about once every 40 years on average. Many of these hurricanes were likely more intense than any that have hit the area in recorded history, according to the study. The ...

Sedimentation (water treatment)
Unhindered settling is a process that removes the discrete particles in a very low concentration without interference from nearby particles. In general, if the concentration of the solutions is lower than 500 mg/L total suspended solids, sedimentation will be considered discrete. Concentrations of raceway effluent total suspended solids (TSS) in the west are usually less than 5 mg/L net. TSS concentrations of off-line settling basin effluent are less than 100 mg/L net. The particles keep their size and shape during discrete settling, with an independent velocity. With such low concentrations of suspended particles, the probability of particle collisions is very low and consequently the rate of floculation is small enough to be neglected for most calculations. Thus the surface area of the settling basin becomes the main factor of sedimentation rate. All continuous flow settling basins are divided into four parts: inlet zone, settling zone, sludge zone and outlet zone (Figure 2). In the ...
