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.  (+info)

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.  (+info)

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.  (+info)

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)

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 ...
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
In a study assessing flood clean-up procedures in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, a team of scientists led by researchers at Columbia Universitys Mailman School of Public Health, report that household levels of mold and bacterial endotoxins in three single-family homes were so considerable that they equaled or surpassed those in waste-water treatment plants, cotton mills and agricultural environments.
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
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 ...
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.

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 ...
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 ...

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. ...
A barreling Hurricane Sandy made landfall in New Jersey this evening, hours earlier than previously expected. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration expects that the landfall will be accompanied by life-threatening storm surge and hurricane-force winds.
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).

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. ...

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, ...
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 ...
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.

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.
Just as Typhoon Nargis has reminded us of the destructive power of tropical cyclones (with its horrible death toll in Burma-around 100,000 according to the UN), a new paper by Knutson et al in the latest issue of the journal Nature Geosciences purports to project a reduction in Atlantic hurricane activity (principally the frequency but also integrated measures of powerfulness). The close timing of the Knutson et al and Typhoon Nargis is of course coincidental. But the study has been accorded the unprecedented privilege (that is, for a climate change article published during the past 7 years) of a NOAA press conference. Whats the difference this time? Well, for one thing, the title of the paper: "Simulated reduction in Atlantic hurricane frequency under twenty-first-century warming conditions" (emphasis added).. The idea that climate change might actually decrease the frequency of tropical cyclones (TCs) is not an entirely new idea. Indeed, similar conclusions have been reached in earlier work ...

The benefits of tropical storms and hurricanes doesnt end with rainfall. It turns out the such storms can help maintain and build barrier beaches, such as those that line the East Coast. Orrin H. Pilkey, James B. Duke Professor Emeritus of Geology at the Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences at Duke, noted that "Barrier islands need hurricanes for their survival, especially at times of rising sea levels such as now. Its during hurricanes that islands get higher and wider. From a purely natural standpoint hurricanes are a blessing for islands, even though theyre a curse for people who live there ...
The above is a follow up on: Why Hurricane Matthew Unprecedented "Storm Surge" Hype? 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 ...

Hurricane Ingrid was one of two tropical cyclones, along with Hurricane Manuel, to strike Mexico within a 24‑hour period, the first such occurrence since 1958. Ingrid was the ninth named storm and second hurricane of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. It formed on September 12 in the Gulf of Mexico from a broad disturbance that also spawned Manuel in the eastern Pacific. After initially moving westward toward Veracruz, Ingrid turned northeastward away from the coast. Favorable conditions allowed it to attain hurricane status on September 14, and the next day Ingrid attained peak winds of 140 km/h (85 mph). Subsequently, increased wind shear weakened the convection as the storm turned more to the northwest and west. On September 16, Ingrid made landfall just south of La Pesca, Tamaulipas in northeastern Mexico as a strong tropical storm, and dissipated the next day. The hurricane was also the last one to form in the Gulf of Mexico until Hurricane Hermine in 2016. The combined impacts of ...

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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
CAMDEN COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY EVENT: Tropical Storm Fay SITUATION REPORT, TS-F8 All information contained in the report is based on the CURRENT forecast. 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 ...

Men use ropes to pull away the debris of houses to look for bodies. The Hurricane of 1900 made landfall on the city of Galveston, Texas, on September 8. It had estimated winds of 145 miles per hour at landfall, making it a Category 4 storm on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. It was one of the deadliest and costliest hurricanes in American history. The estimated death toll was between 6,000 and 12,000 individuals. The Galveston Hurricane of 1900 is to date the deadliest natural disaster ever to strike the United States. - Stock Image C025/3447

Study Purpose: The primary objective of the study was to document post-disaster trajectories of mental health and functioning and to evaluate the influence of socio-demographic characteristics, pre-disaster resources, and disaster experiences on those trajectories. Sample: The study area (Galveston county and Chambers county, Texas) was divided into five strata based on FEMA maps of flooding after Hurricane Ike as well as United States Census data on poverty levels in the year 2000. Differential sampling was employed across strata to ensure the inclusion of residents of the most affected areas and those most likely to have experienced hurricane-related traumatic events. The five strata were as follows, with Stratum 1 expected to have experienced the greatest hurricane damage and Stratum 5 the least damage: (1) Galveston Island and the Bolivar Peninsula, which suffered storm surge damage; (2) Flooded areas of the mainland; (3) Non-flooded areas of the mainland with relatively high rates of ...
With El Nino conditions expected to persist into the fall, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center is predicting a 70% chance of above-normal tropical cyclone activity during the upcoming hurricane season.. National Weather Service forecasters on Wednesday said the islands could be threatened by five to eight storms from June through November. The season norm for tropical depressions, named storms and hurricanes in the Central Pacific hurricane basin is four or five.. "The time to prepare for hurricane season is now," said Chris Brenchley, director of the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, at a press conference at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.. Forecasters said the 2019 outlook also offers a 20% chance of a near-normal season and a 10% chance of a below- normal season.. El Nino conditions are expected to push ocean temperatures in the main hurricane formation region above average, while wind shear is weaker than average, forecasters said. Thats a recipe for more hurricanes traveling to the ...
This study examined differences across race and income in responses to warning messages associated with Hurricane Katrina. Surveys were administered to Katrina evacuees who had been relocated throughout the country, investigating perceptions of the seriousness of the crisis, motivation to evacuate, and preparations for the storm.

A building in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, is flooded from Hurricane Sandy.. When the five-year extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) was signed by President Obama in July 2012, the debate over whether the federal government had a vital role in the flood insurance market seemed to be settled. From 2008 to the signing of the long-term extension, the NFIP had been given an estimated 17 short-term extensions and been allowed to lapse on two separate occasions. Supporters, including RIMS, hoped that the long-term extensions passage would finally bring certainty to the market, but Hurricane Sandy has once again revived debate over the program.. The NFIP was originally created in 1968 as a way to provide affordable flood insurance to those who lived in the most flood prone areas. The program remained solvent until 2005 when Hurricane Katrina put the program $18 billion in debt. It remained alive by borrowing from the Treasury, but Hurricane Sandy has again placed it in financial ...
The impacts of major tropical storms events on coastal waters include sediment resuspension, intense water column mixing, and increased delivery of terrestrial materials into coastal waters. We examined satellite imagery acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) ocean color sensor aboard the Aqua spacecraft following two major hurricane events: Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall on 29 August 2005, and Hurricane Rita, which made landfall on 24 September. MODIS Aqua true color imagery revealed high turbidity levels in shelf waters immediately following the storms indicative of intense resuspension. However, imagery following the landfall of Katrina showed relatively rapid return of shelf water mass properties to pre-storm conditions. Indeed, MODIS Aqua-derived estimates of diffuse attenuation at 490 nm (K_490) and chlorophyll (chlor_a) from mid-August prior to the landfall of Hurricane Katrina were comparable to those observed in mid-September following the storm.

Washington, DC, September 8, 2005 - The U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) today issued a Safety Bulletin urging oil and chemical facilities to take special precautions when restarting in the wake of shutdowns due to Hurricane Katrina. The CSB three-member board voted to approve the Safety Bulletin this afternoon, and the full text of the Bulletin has been posted on the agency website, www.csb.gov. It notes that the startup of major processes at chemical facilities is a hazardous phase, saying, Facilities should pay particular attention to process safety requirements during this critical period to assure a safe and expeditious return to operation.. The Bulletin says that, as the industry recognizes, starting up a complex petrochemical process requires and receives a higher level of attention and care than normal processing, because numerous activities are occurring simultaneously and many automatic systems are run under manual control.. Noting that many facilities--after ...

Yesterdays Wall Street Journal ran a revealing story (subscription only) about the federal governments attempt to perpetuate low income housing projects in Galveston, Texas. Four years ago, Hurricane Ike destroyed 569 public-housing units. The Democratic mayor wanted to rebuild the housing as part of a "mixed-income" development. But he was defeated by a conservative businessman who promised not to rebuild the units. Instead, he proposed to issue housing vouchers to displaced residents so they would have options, including finding housing near where they have job opportunities.. Enter the feds. According to the Journal, U.S. officials have threatened to cut-off almost half a billion dollars of aid to Galveston unless it rebuilds the old, low-income units. The feds talk, euphemistically, in terms of rebuilding the units as "mixed-income" housing. But the chairman of the Galveston Housing Authority is probably closer to the mark when he says they are "like communities of the poor [that] destroy ...
NASAs infrared satellite imagery has confirmed that Tomas is intensifying as convection is strengthening and cloud tops within the system are getting colder.. Infrared imagery helps scientists detect cold top temperatures within a tropical cyclone, and Tomas cloud tops have grown colder over the last 24 hours. Tomas showed strong convective activity in his center as indicated by high thunderstorms that were as cold as -63 degrees Fahrenheit. The colder the cloud tops, the higher and stronger the thunderstorms are that power the tropical cyclone. The infrared imagery was captured on Nov. 4 at 0659 UTC (2:59 a.m. EDT) by the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument that flies aboard NASAs Aqua satellite.. At 8 a.m. EDT on Nov. 4 Tomas had maximum sustained winds near 50 mph, and further strengthening is expected as wind shear remains light and sea surface temperatures remain warm. Tomas was located about 150 miles south-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica and 305 miles southwest of Port Au ...
BRAITHWAITE, La. - Pickups hauling boat trailers and flatbed trucks laden with crab traps exited vulnerable, low-lying areas of southeast Louisiana on Friday as Tropical Storm Karen headed toward the northern Gulf Coast, a late-arriving worry in what had been a slow hurricane season in the U.S..

There are several dead in the fence, its miserable to look at," said Mark Parent.. Most are stranded south of the intracoastal waterway with no food or fresh water. Cattle can drink sea water for five to eight days but if they drink too much, they could end up with salt-water stress.. "The stress on the cows and bulls is tremendous as you know. Even though they may survive, the initial impact of the storm, they may suffer weeks to come," said LeDoux.. "Today, most are alive. They have been drinking saltwater that obviously stresses the cows. Were trying to get them settled down as quickly as we can especially water more important than food," said ...

Downloadable! We investigate determinants of private and public generosity to Katrina victims using an artifactual field experiment. In this experiment, respondents from the general population viewed a short audiovisual presentation that manipulated respondents perceptions of the income, race, and deservingness of Katrina victims in one of two small cities. Respondents then decided how to split $100 between themselves and a charity helping Katrina victims in this small city. We also collected survey data on subjective support for government spending to help the Katrina victims in the cities. We find, first, that our income manipulation had a significant effect on giving; respondents gave more when they perceived the victims to be poorer. Second, the race and deservingness manipulations had virtually no effect on average giving. Third, the averages mask substantial racial bias among sub-groups of our sample. For instance, the subgroup of whites who identify with their ethnic or racial group strongly

The global characteristics of tropical cyclones (TCs) simulated by several climate models are analyzed and compared with observations. The global climate models were forced by the same sea surface temperature (SST) fields in two types of experiments, using climatological SST and interannually varying SST. TC tracks and intensities are derived from each models output fields by the group who ran that model, using their own preferred tracking scheme; the study considers the combination of model and tracking scheme as a single modeling system, and compares the properties derived from the different systems. Overall, the observed geographic distribution of global TC frequency was reasonably well reproduced. As expected, with the exception of one model, intensities of the simulated TC were lower than in observations, to a degree that varies considerably across models. ...

A peat record from Quincan Crater (Queensland, Australia), spanning the past 200 years, was used to test if hydrogen isotope ratios of leaf wax long-chain n-alkanes derived of higher plants can be used to reconstruct past tropical cyclone activity. Queensland is frequently impacted by tropical cyclones, with on average 1-2 hits per year. The most abundant n-alkanes in the peat are C29 and C31. Possible sources for long chain n-alkanes in the peat core are ferns and grasses, which grow directly on the peat layer, and the tropical forest growing on the crater rim. Hydrogen isotope ratios of C27, C29 and C31n-alkanes vary between − 155 and − 185 ‰ (VSMOW), with the largest variability in the upper 30 cm of the record. For the period 1950-2000 AD the variability in δD of C29 alkanes resembles a smoothed record of historical tropical cyclone frequency occurring within a 500 km radius from the site. This suggests that the high number of tropical cyclones occurring in this period strongly ...
