DJ-Looks like extreme damage on its way; http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/u-s-national-news/3158-47-3-inches-of-rain-in-48-hours-and-it-s-still-raining-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fayetteville,_North_Carolina

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/Dire-Flood-Threat-Carolinas-Florences-Rains-Continue:
Relentless rainbands sweeping around Tropical Storm Florence continue to drench parts of North and South Carolina already waterlogged after days of torrential downpours. Florence’s center—located about 40 miles west of Myrtle Beach, SC, at 11 am EDT Saturday, with top sustained winds down to 45 mph—was drifting west at just 2 mph. This painfully slow progress, together with Florence’s vast field of moisture, is a recipe for catastrophic rains through the weekend and potentially devastating floods into the coming week. Several rivers across the region are already predicted to set all-time record crests by Tuesday or Wednesday, including the Lumber and Cape Fear rivers, which caused massive flooding just two years ago during Hurricane Matthew.

http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/u-s-national-news/3168-north-carolina-nuclear-plant-declares-emergency and almost the same https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-09-17/inaccessible-north-carolina-nuclear-plant-declares-unusual-event-during-storm

http://www.thebigwobble.org/2018/09/floodwaters-rise-as-killer-storm-stalks.html

DJ-The Brunswick nuclear plant is still getting electricity to run the plant-had not to fall back on generators. Worst case could be that they are not able to get rid of cooling water due to floods-employees getting exhausted.
(The chances for a Fukushima-scenario most likely are as good as 0%-unless situation gets much worse. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-09-14/florence-may-be-costliest-storm-us-history-170-billion-damage)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Florence (getting updated dailey and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_Atlantic_hurricane_season

In the short term there is no other storm on its way to the US. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo.php?basin=atlc&fdays=5-still "Florence" will bring large amounts of rain-other extreme weather events are possible. https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/Florences-Flood-Threat-Expands-Inland

-"Helene" moved to UK/Ireland supposed to have done little damage-"Ali" just north of "Helene" did do a lot of damage. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018%E2%80%9319_European_windstorm_season#Storm_Ali (DJ-Did some of the force of Helene transfer to Ali ?)
https://www.bbc.com/news/av/uk-scotland-45578967/storm-ali-hundreds-queue-at-glasgow-buchanan-street-for-buses-to-get-home and https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-europe-45581155/the-path-of-storm-ali

-"Florence"did claim 40 lives in the US. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Florence#Aftermath Proberbly to early to say what the damage is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_Atlantic_hurricane_season <17billion)

-"Kirk" and "Leslie" are the next names on the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane List. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWc9EfBAx1k and https://www.ventusky.com/?p=45;-48;2&l=wind-10m&t=20180929/12 has them both by the end of this month (and a hurricane south of Italy in the Mediterranean Sea). https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo.php?basin=atlc&fdays=5

-"Florence" could split up and become two storms again in the Atlantic-coming week ? https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/After-Florence-Whats-Next-Atlantic The north-part of (ex)"Florence" will reach the UK and Ireland as a storm coming weekend. The south-part of "Florence" will hang on in the Mid-Atlantic and could-in time-reform (maybe even be named "Florence" again-NHC has to decide if a depression as a remnant of a hurricane-becoming a hurricane again will get its "old"name).

- (In the article also "Medicane" south of Italy ?)http://www.severe-weather.eu/mcd/extreme-rainfall-associated-with-intense-cyclone-over-the-tyrrhenian-sea-until-satuday/https://www.meteoalarm.eu/en_UK/0/0/IT019-Sardegna.html

Hurricane season is far from over the European storm season just started.

One of the unforeseen effects of an increase in hurricanes is the impact upon the US agricultural sector.

I am a consultant in the US food industry, and have long argued that storing hog waste in open ponds was a recipe for disaster!
