Nate aims at New Orleans amid worries about drainage system

https://apnews.com/f2342b605d8346a58b9604845b62a696/Nate-aims-at-New-Orleans-amid-worries-about-drainage-system

Williams said in a recent interview that council members recently learned pumping capacity wasn’t tested ahead of the hurricane season that began June 1.


this is unreal

after Katrina you would think keeping this pumping system in top operating condition would be a PRIORITY


corruption?

incompetence?

just plain stupidity?

its really hard to feel sorry for people who keep making the same mistakes OVER AND OVER

with Nate headed towards Louisiana maybe another MAN MADE disaster is going to occur ???

MrMBB333 "Nate" may get to cat3-major hurricane-but moving fast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsr1c_uhelU

BPEarthWatch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mqhx2pIrIXg and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH9c0d4ivtY  A 9 feet storm surge, on top of that strong waves, high tide (Full moon) and up to 1 foot of rain. Even as a cat-1 "Nate" can do a lot of damage.

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCUAT1+shtml/070329.shtml? "Nate"now (much earlier than expected) cat 1. (MrMBB333 may be correct with cat 3)

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo.php?basin=atlc&fdays=5 Also some development central Atlantic-effecting logistics (air-ships).

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at1+shtml/032801.shtml?tswind120#contents How strong "Nate"will get when it reaches the Atlantic coast (DC/NY) ?

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/10/07/us/hurricane-nate-forecast/index.html New Orleans; Of the city's 120 main drainage pumps, three major and eight smaller ones were offline Friday night, city records show. Also, all 24 major pump stations had backup generators, records show, as only three of five turbines that help power the city's oldest, most powerful pumps were available for service, a city water utility spokeswoman told CNN.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FKVtv2csUY BPEarthWatch; "Nate" fastest moving storm on record-up to 26 miles per hour. 
MrMBB333-"Nate"extreme cold top- (-90C/-120F) bringing hail, tornado's, rain-mostly east of New Orleans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxYOVi-VMB8 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZJBcwFCmjg "very unusual hurricane, no eye ?"


Nate is expected to cause only a fraction of the damage that Katrina wrought (though it wouldn’t be the first time this season that forecasters underestimated a Hurricane’s potential for devastation). 

Nate makes a hyperactive 2017 hurricane season even more notable

Nate is the ninth hurricane of this hyperactive 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, giving it the most hurricanes since 2012. This makes 2017 tied for the 15th most hurricanes on record, according to Dr. Phil Klotzbach (Colorado State University). Nate is also the ninth consecutive named storm this year to reach hurricane strength (preceded by Franklin, Gert, Harvey, Irma, Jose, Katia, Lee, and Maria.) The last time nine or more consecutive named storms became hurricanes was in 1893, when ten did so.

If Nate makes landfall as a hurricane in the U.S., it will mark the first time since 2008 that three hurricanes have hit the U.S. mainland. In 2008, Hurricane Dolly made landfall in far southern Texas on South Padre Island on July 23 as a Category 1 hurricane, killing 3 and causing $1.5 billion in damage. On September 1, Hurricane Gustav made landfall near Cocodrie, Louisiana as a Category 2 hurricane, killing 53 and causing $7 billion in damage. On September 13, Hurricane Ike hit the upper Texas coast as a strong Category 2 hurricane, killing 112 people and causing $35 billion in damage. That year also had 3 tropical storms strike the U.S. (Edouard, Fay, and Hanna), and was the last year to see six named storms hit the U.S.

Nate will bring the total number of 2017 continental U.S. landfalls by named storms to five, in addition to the landfalls by Tropical Storm Cindy, Tropical Storm Emily, Hurricane Harvey, and Hurricane Irma. If we include Maria's landfall in Puerto Rico, the U.S. will have had six landfalls in 2017. According to Dr. Klotzbach, average continental U.S. landfalling statistics since 1900 are 3.5 named storms, 1.8 hurricanes and 0.7 major hurricanes. The highest number of tropical storms and hurricanes to hit the continental U.S. in one year was 9 in 1916; 2004 had 8, and there were 7 in 2005.

A hurricane makes landfall in the United States during October about every two years, according to Dr. Klotzbach. Florida has been the most frequent target, with 28 October landfalls since 1878. In that same period, a total of 13 hurricanes have made landfall from Texas to Alabama during the month of October.

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo.php?basin=atlc&fdays=5 With post-tropical cyclone "Nate" still on the map "Ophelia"on the map-central Atlantic-expected to become a hurricane.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5zcIPqhELk MrMBB333-season looks like 2004/2005 with several "disturbances" to be expected.

In2ThinAir on "Ophelia", "Philippe" and "Rina" on their way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh7L1SKb2aY.  Update https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdO5V07DdB4&t=30s

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Atlantic_hurricane_season#Storm_names After "Rina" still four names left; Sean (in some models already on its way from West-Africa), Tammy, Vince and Whitney-there is an extra list for when these names are not enough.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9r3hHVmyqPM MrMBB333 "Ophelia"expected to reach Ireland/Scotland with hurricane cat 1 force monday oct 16. Behind that two other storms following the same route-towards Norway. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at2+shtml/023933.shtml?mltoa34#contents 

(DJ; this is very extreme-could bring THREE storms next week to Ireland, Scotland, Uk, Norway !)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QEHTonRRdk In2ThinAir-models unclear "Ophelia" moving east ? (to "us" in the Netherlands ?).

Extreme weather on its way to western Europe with "Ophelia" hitting Ireland monday as a cat 1, followed by another strong stormsystem friday/saterday.  (MrMBB333-sort of Tropical Storm, 984 Mb)https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/ophelia-hits-category-3-destructive-winds-tap-ireland :

To call Ophelia unusual would be an understatement. For one thing, it became a major hurricane at longitude 26.6°W, further east than any other formation of a Category 3 in the Atlantic. The former record-holder was Frances (1980), which became a Category 3 at 12.8°N, 29.8°W. Ophelia’s achievement is even more impressive when you consider its latitude: 34.8°N. In data going back to 1851, no other major hurricane is known to have formed anywhere close to as far northeast as Ophelia. The runner-up at Ophelia’s latitude range, Michael (2012), developed some 900 miles further west (see Figure 2 below).

Ophelia also extends this year’s count of major Atlantic hurricanes to six, a tally last achieved in 2004. Only two years have notched seven major Atlantic hurricanes: 1961 and 2005.


BPEarthwatch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQPePEssHrM, MrMBB333https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9R7YaIDYhA, risks for the US next week limited. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo.php?basin=atlc&fdays=2 A disturbance will bring more rain to Puerto Rico before moving north to the Atlantic (and later on moving to Europe).


The discussion on "Trump's Katrina" is "political", at least in Puerto Rico all should have clean water, medication, basic food, a roof. This is not the case. The US is failing to protect its citizens-with more bad weather to be expected (will Puerto Rico get snow this winter? The weather is absurd !). Other islands in the Carabean are doing better.  (Also in Texas http://robinwestenra.blogspot.nl/2017/10/abby-martin-chronicles-officail-neglect.html?spref=fb)

http://www.met.ie/nationalwarnings/default.asp DJ Ireland is a small country that will get hit by this storm(s) allover. It will need-just like the Carabean Islands-all the help it can get.

In Dutch news; Saint/Sint Maarten-carabean island tourist season is coming-but the tourists stay away because most hotels and restaurants are not ready for them. They only can get ready again when the Netherlands, France, EU, invests large amounts. With more strong hurricanes coming years that is something that needs discussion...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0ome3DjNtw MrMBB333 more extreme weather for NW-US, Ireland/W. Europe, Japan.
October 18, 2017: More extreme weather breaking out in both hemispheres of earth. Atmospheric River - Super Typhoon - Super Low /SuperStorm. Ireland braces for yet ANOTHER round of tropical storm like conditions as 330,000 set around without power from Ophelia.

‘The Big Dark’: Series Of Storms Stretching From China To U.S. Batters Northwest

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-10-18/its-mad-max-situation-puerto-rico-doctors-practice-medicine-post-apocalyptic-conditi 

It isn’t just the sweltering heat that’s causing a post-apocalyptic medical crisis either. A lack of clean drinking water is compounding the problems. In one town, the medical team encountered an orphanage where children were on the verge of dehydration. The physicians flew in pallets of fresh drinking water to save the kids’ lives. Because of the lack of water,  Dr. Raul Hernandez, an internist based in San Juan, is bracing for an outbreak and possibly several deaths from waterborne diseases. He said Leptospirosis, a bacterial diseasespread through the urine of infected animals such as rodents, is becoming a growing concern. Due to a lack of safe drinking water, people are drinking from whatever water sources they can find just to survive, he said. If that water contains urine from an infected rat, the disease will spread, he said. So far, at least two deaths have been attributed to Leptospirosis in Puerto Rico.

Dr. Miguel Acevedo led the second team of emergency physicians from Florida Hospital. “They say it could take six to nine months for power to be restored fully in Puerto Rico. No hospital can plan to survive on generators for that long,” he said.

What doctors are dealing with in Puerto Rico is a “Mad Max kind of situation,” said Acevedo.

 

The reality here is post-apocalyptic,” he said. “You can’t understand the seriousness of it unless you see it.”

Satori, I made your link a direct link, hope that is okay ?


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association describes such weather patterns as “rivers in the sky” that transport water vapor from warm tropical areas to cooler regions.

“These columns of vapor move with the weather, carrying an amount of water vapor roughly equivalent to the average flow of water at the mouth of the Mississippi River,” the agency says. “When the atmospheric rivers make landfall, they often release this water vapor in the form of rain or snow.”

The Washington Post notes that while this week’s storm is certainly dramatic in its scale, atmospheric rivers this large have been seen before. Another over the Pacific Ocean in October 2009 hit central California and dumped up to 15 inches of rain over parts of the state.

'Katrina brain': The invisible long-term toll of megastorms


http://www.politico.com/agenda/story/2017/10/12/psychological-toll-natural-disasters-000547

More than 1,800 people died in Katrina from drowning and other immediate injuries. But public health officials say that, in the aftermath of an extreme weather event like a hurricane, the toll of long-term psychological injuries builds in the months and years that follow, outpacing more immediate injuries and swamping the health care system long after emergency workers go home and shelters shut down.

That’s the rough reality that will soon confront regions affected by this year’s string of destructive hurricanes. As flood waters recede from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria and Nate, and survivors work to rebuild communities in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean, mental health experts warn that the hidden psychological toll will mount over time, expressed in heightened rates of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, domestic violence, divorce, murder and suicide.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbkoSroVOgYin2thinair;

5 years ago to the day we first Herd of the possibility of "Sandy" as it was recognized as a tropical Wave in the Caribbean. 3 days Later would form in2 Hurricane Sandy. No one believed Sandy to be a threat until the last few hours on the 29th when Sandy made that famous Left Hook in2 Atlantic City New Jersey. Over 150 people killed and still to this day one of the worst #SuperStorms to hit the North East. Ireland and the UK prepare for yet another huge storm this one named "Storm Brian" (Second Storm on the list) A few disagreements on the actual place of landfall but being as big as it is all areas or Ireland/and the UK MUST be on high alert. this is said to be one fo the worst storms to hit the area ever. Finally we take look at Typhoon LAN heading to JAPAN. Not only is this storm significant in the fact that it may cause massive flooding and damage on the East coasts of Japan but the MJO effect may cause the system to follow the jet stream and slide down the west coast of the US causing server weather for the north West US then possibly causing cyclones in the Caribbean and gulf of Mexico.
