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
Hello to all….. Tropical Depression (TD)13 became Tropical Storm Lorenzo at the 2 PM EDT/1800 UTC advisory from the National Hurricane Center. Maximum sustained winds are now near 60 MPH. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the Gulf Coast of Mexico from Palma Solo to Cabo Rojo and a Tropical Storm Watch is in effect along the Gulf Coast of Mexico from north of Cabo Rojo to La Cruz. Lorenzo is currently a small tropical storm with tropical storm force winds only extending 35 miles from the center.. The VoIP Hurricane Net Management Team will continue to closely monitor the progress of Lorenzo. Lorenzo is not expected to strengthen further but this will be monitored in case something unexpected occurs. Thanks to all for their continued support of the VoIP Hurricane Net!. 73,Rob-KD1CY ...
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. Jagger (eds.), Hurricanes and Climate Change, 139. doi: 10.1007/978-0-387-09410-6, © Springer Science + Business Media, LLC 2009. statistical correlations exist between the Atlantic hurricane source region and the northern Atlantic (Goldenberg et al., 2001) and tropical Pacific warm pools (Wang et al., 2006). Several authors have used these statistical relationships to produce predictive models of Atlantic hurricane season intensity and tropical storm numbers (e.g. Elsner and Jagger, 2006; ...
The first tropical storm of the Eastern Pacific hurricane season was short-lived. Satellite imagery revealed that Tropical Storm Alvin became a remnant low pressure area 36 hours after it was named.. NASAs GOES Project created an image of Alvins remnants using infrared data from NOAAs GOES-15 satellite on May 17 at 1200 UTC (8 a.m. EDT). NASAs GOES Project is located at NASAs Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Alvin became a named tropical storm on May 15 at 5 p.m. EDT and weakened into a trough (elongated area) of low pressure by 5 a.m. EDT on May 17.. The GOES-15 satellite image showed that the system has become elongated and did not have a well-defined center. The National Hurricane Center also noted that Alvins remnant low pressure area had become further embedded within the Inter-tropical Convergence Zone and is no longer a tropical cyclone.. The Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone is a broad area of low atmospheric pressure located in the equatorial region where the ...

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 ...
Proceeds from the fundraising event will aid in the relief & reconstruction from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy to the parish of St Nicholas of Tolentine in Atlantic City, NJOn Thursday March 21, a benefit dance was held in Concannons Village in Norwood in aid of the victims of Hurricane Sandy The event was a resounding success with over $15,000 raised and two truck-loads of items such as food and clothing being delivered to St Nicholas of Tolentine Parish in Atlantic City, NJWhen the devastating events of Sandy were taking place, Tommy Henry (of the Noel Henry Irish Showband) and some friends wondered if they could raise money for the victims of the hurricane by running a benefit through the Irish clubs Along with Dan and Anna McAuliffe and a committee of around 8 people, they got in touch with Monsignor Hodge of St Nicholas of Tolentine and decided to hold the benefit for his parish in Atlantic City
After the active Atlantic hurricanes seasons of 2004 and 2005, the period 2006-2016, was the longest recorded period of no major hurricane landfalls on the US mainland. That period ended in 2017, with two major hurricane landfalls and well over $100 billion in economic damage. This paper updates and extends previous work that normalizes mainland US hurricane damage from 1900-2017 to 2017 US dollar values. The analysis reflects the ongoing HURDAT reanalysis efforts. Two separate normalization methodologies show no significant trends in mainland US normalized damage. Such a lack of trends is expected as it corresponds to a lack of trends in landfall hurricane frequency and intensity over the record. Normalized losses for the 1926 Great Miami Hurricane are upwards of $200 billion. Also of interest, 2017 Hurricane Irma surpasses the wind-related losses of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Previously published analysis revealed losses from 2005 Hurricane Katrina as ranking above the 1900 Galveston ...
McLean, VA, November 21, 2012 - Hurricane Sandy had a wide-ranging and devastating impact as it slammed though the U.S. East Coast just a few short weeks ago.. While power and internet service was out for hundreds of thousands of businesses and residences all along the East Coast for well over a week, smart technology planning and adoption of cloud technologies kept businesses like AME Corporation up and running, and in touch with their employees, their customers and suppliers, shortly after the storm subsided.. AME Corporation specializes in custom rubber and plastic components and sealing solutions, with locations in New Jersey and Shanghai, China. About five years ago, AME Corporations President and CEO Ehren Dimitry had the foresight to understand how cloud computing could really give his business a competitive advantage, and could help save his business in the event that natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy strike. In looking back over the past several weeks, Dimitry admitted he had no ...

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 ...
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. ...
As the Texas Gulf Coast braces for the impact of Tropical Storm Nicholas, the Highland Lakes is expecting the system to bring only cooler temperatures and scattered rain.. According to the National Hurricane Center, the tropical storm is expected to make landfall along the mid-Texas coast late Monday, Sept. 13. Based on the latest information, the storm will track along the coast and East Texas before degrading to a tropical depression over Northeast Texas later in the week. Most of the rainfall, along with the storm surge, should hug the coastal and eastern counties and communities.. In the Highland Lakes, the storm is expected to bring a quarter to three-quarters of an inch of rainfall through Thursday, Sept. 16.. According to the National Weather Service, theres a 30-40 percent chance of thunderstorms and rainfall for the Highland Lakes area Monday-Thursday, which should taper off by Friday.. The Highland Lakes forecast also calls for milder temperatures with highs in the mid-80s through ...
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). 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 ...

Here are a set of basic safety tips they shared last night:. ...
A hurricane is a tropical cyclone that forms in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. They are among the most destructive forces in nature. Hurricane season runs from June through November, peaking in early to mid-September. But hurricanes can happen any time.. While hurricane winds and tide surge pose a tremendous threat to life and property, resulting heavy rains and tornadoes also cause extensive damage. This Tropical Cyclone Guide from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration provides extensive information on the anatomy of a hurricane and ways to prepare.. Tropical storms and depressions also can cause major damage. Even if a storm doesnt reach the maximum sustained wind speed of 74 miles per hour to classify as a hurricane, the 39 to 73 mile-per-hour winds of a tropical storm, along with heavy rains and tornadoes, can cause loss of life and property. ...

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. ...
HOUSTON (ICIS)--Having faced the first blow of a double tropical storm pattern, the fertilizer industry is keeping a watchful eye on developments of Hurricane Laura as the system moves closer to a landfall along the Texas-Louisiana coastline. The approaching second storm and the earlier rain and wind impacts from tropical storm Marco have left fertilizer activity muted but to this point plant operations continue to function and there has been no immediate reports of damage to facilities. With an ammonia plant in Freeport that it shares with BASF, a source with producer Yara said that the operations were not affected by Marco but the jury is still out if they will close in front of Laura As the forecast intensives for Lauras landfall with the possibility it will be a category 3 storm, and with plants in the projected path once it strikes the US, fertilizer producer Nutrien said, Our plants in the southern United States continue to operate normally. We continue to monitor conditions closely. ...
The JRC has developed an experimental global storm surge model, which is run after each advisory issued by the regional tropical cyclone centres. The calculations are published about 20 minutes after a new advisory is detected by GDACS. The calculations identify the populated places affected by storm surge up to three days in advance, using the forecasted track. When forecasts change, the associated storm surge changes too and alert levels may go up or down.. ...
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. When the TRMM satellite passed overhead on 14 December 2009 at 2329 UTC getting rainfall data Tropical Cyclone Laurence was close to hurricane strength. The rotating rain bands around Laurences center of circulation off the coast of northern Australia were clearly revealed by TRMMs Precipitation Radar (PR) instrument as it peered through obscuring thunderstorm clouds.. Data from TRMMs Precipitation Radar (PR) instrument were ...
Ida battered Louisiana as a Category 4 hurricane on Aug. 29 before its remnants brought deadly flooding to the New York area. Two other tropical storms, Julian and Kate, both fizzled out within a day.. In mid-August, Tropical Storm Fred made landfall in the Florida Panhandle and Hurricane Grace hit Haiti and Mexico. Tropical Storm Henri knocked out power and brought record rainfall to the Northeastern United States on Aug. 22.. The quick succession of named storms might make it seem as if the Atlantic were spinning them up like a fast-paced conveyor belt, but their formation coincides with the peak of hurricane season.. The links between hurricanes and climate change are becoming more apparent. A warming planet can expect stronger hurricanes over time, and a higher incidence of the most powerful storms. But the overall number of storms could drop, because factors like stronger wind shear could keep weaker storms from forming.. Hurricanes are also becoming wetter because of more water vapor in ...

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 ...

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 ...
For Earthquakes the challenge is to estimate in few minutes the possible areas of major damage based on the estimated seismic intensity (eg. Shakemaps). For Tropical Cyclones, the challenge is the pre-tasking of the images, to shorten the time between acquisition of the images and analysis.. The hazard data (eg. Shakemaps for earthquakes or wind, precipitation and storm surge for Tropical Cyclones) are automatically combined with the Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL) to identify the most exposed areas. The use of this series of AoIs allows to focus the acquisitions on the urbanised areas, allowing a comprehensive impact assessment at settlement level.. For each AoI defined by this new system, the exposed population is provided based on the population dataset of GHSL and the various hazards. The following data sources are adopted for the hazards:. ...
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 ...

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.

When you donate blood or platelets through the Red Cross, you can help patients in your local community and patients across the country, including those in Hurricane Sandys path.. The Red Cross partners with more than 3,000 hospitals and ...
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. Many of those make up the geographic footprint he has identified for repopulating ...

The catastrophic Category 4 storm engulfed Port Fourchon near Grand Isle on Sunday just before noon with sustained winds of 150 mph and a 16-foot storm surge, making landfall as one of the strongest storms to hit Louisiana since the 1850s, the newspaper reported.. Idas 150 mph winds tied it for the fifth-strongest hurricane to ever hit the mainland U.S., and its landfall came 16 years to the day after Hurricane Katrina ravaged coastal Louisiana and Mississippi, The Associated Press reported.. By comparison, Katrina made landfall as a Category 3 storm with 125 mph winds and was blamed for at least 1,800 deaths, levee breaches, catastrophic flooding in New Orleans and widespread destruction along Mississippis gulf coast.. ,, Related: Ida live updates: Powerful storm downgraded to a Category 3, still packing 125 mph winds.

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 ...

Tropical storm warnings have been issued for western Cuba and northwestern Bahamas, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Friday, as an area of low pressure over the northwest Caribbean Sea is expected to strengthen into a tropical cyclone.
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.[8] 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.[156] 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.[157] A survivor of the hurricane was the Hollywood director King Vidor, who made his directing debut in 1913 with the film Hurricane ...
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 ...
As the size of landfalling hurricanes from the Gulf of Mexico increases, were seeing more tornadoes than we did in the past that can occur up to two days and several hundred miles inland from the landfall location...The size of a tropical cyclone basically sets the domain over which tornadoes can form. So a larger storm that has more exposure over land has a higher propensity for producing tornadoes than a smaller one, on average.. James Belanger, lead-author. ...

The primary impact to the coastal counties ARRL West Central Florida Section will be from storm surge, tropical storm force winds but soon begin to diminish today. The primary impact to ...
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, ...

A hurricane deductible is applied only to hurricanes, whereas a windstorm deductible applies to any type of wind. If your policy has a hurricane deductible, it will clearly state the specific trigger that would cause the deductible to go into effect.. Unlike the standard dollar deductible on a homeowners policy, a hurricane or windstorm deductible is usually expressed as a percentage, generally from 1 to 5 percent of the insured value of the structure of your home.. If you live in an area at high risk for hurricanes, your hurricane deductible may be a higher percentage. Depending on your insurer and the state where you live, you may have the option of paying more money in premiums in exchange for a lower deductible.. Like any deductible, a hurricane or windstorm deductible will affect the bottom line of your insurance payout. If you have a high hurricane or windstorm deductible consider putting aside the additional money you may need to rebuild your home.. ...

Flint Brook, a tributary to the Third Branch White River in Roxbury, Vermont, has a history of flooding the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Departments Roxbury Fish Culture Station (the hatchery) and surrounding infrastructure. Flooding resulting from tropical storm Irene on August 28-29, 2011, caused widespread destruction in the region, including extensive and costly damages to the State-owned hatchery and the transportation infrastructure in the Town of Roxbury, Vermont. Sections of State Route 12A were washed out, and several bridges and culverts on Oxbow Road, Thurston Hill Road, and the New England Central Railroad in Roxbury were heavily damaged. Record high peak-discharge estimates of 2,140 cubic feet per second (ft3/s) and 4,320 ft3/s were calculated for Flint Brook at its confluence with the Third Branch White River and for the Third Branch White River at about 350 feet (ft) downstream from the hatchery, respectively.

TLDR. 1) We highlight 3 things to keep in mind as we reflect on Hurricane Ida.. 2) Somaliland successfully reduces cheetah trafficking. 3) Singapore company introduces black solider flies to solve the countries food waste problem. With winds hitting landfall at 150 mph, Hurricane Ida was one of the Top 5 most intense storms to ever hit the US mainland. While fortunately not one of the deadliest - in part due to the enormous protections built since Hurricane Katrina rocked New Orleans & southern Louisiana 16 years ago to the day - it was still highly destructive. 1 million folks in Louisiana are without power and hospitals, already overrun from the COVID Delta spike, are beyond capacity.. As Ida continues to bring major rainfall in its climb up the Mid-Atlantic coast, 3 key things stand out to us about this storm and what we can do to help mitigate damaged, displaced, and lost lives going forward.. Before getting into that, our thoughts and prayers are with all those hurt by this storm. If you ...
