Re: Huricane Season 2021

The gulf is busy still AALa2Yu.img?h=450&w=799&m=6&q=60&o=f&l=f

Grand Isle, Louisiana, measured sustained winds at 40 mph. An oil rig south of the southeastern coast of Louisiana reported sustained winds of 44 mph and a wind gust of 58 mph.

Tropical storm-force winds can be felt as far as 205 miles from the center of the disturbance, forecasters said.
The storm is forecast to hit Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle through the weekend, according to CNN meteorologist Robert Shackelford.

Tropical storm warnings extend from Louisiana into the Florida Panhandle, affecting cities like New Orleans; Gulfport and Biloxi, Mississippi; Mobile, Alabama; and Pensacola, Florida.

Heavy rainfall is expected to bring flash flooding across the central Gulf Coast on Friday night. These flood impacts are forecast to spread across the Southeast much of Saturday and into Sunday.

Widespread rainfall totals of 4-8 inches are expected but upwards of a foot of rain is possible, especially along the coast.

Tropical Storm Claudette remains likely to form late Friday, bringing heavy rains to Gulf Coast

Re: Huricane Season 2021

Two disturbances in the Atlantic. One could reach the southeast coast as depression

9d1a59edb42107261c3c5f542c360fdd

The one closer to the U.S. was about 500 miles east-southeast of the Georgia-South Carolina border as of the 2 a.m. update on Sunday and headed west at about 15 mph.

The other disturbance, an area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave off the coast of Africa, was more than 700 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands as of the afternoon update. It was booking it west at 20 mph and forecasters said “little, if any” development of this system is expected in the next few days.

Three have formed so far and the next name on the list is Danny.

NOAA forecasts another active storm season this year, with 13 to 20 named storms.

Re: Huricane Season 2021

Useful info on this site:

https://www.iii.org/fact-statistic/fact … hurricanes

When you compare five year periods:

2005-09  -  37 hurricanes

2010-14  -  37 hurricanes

2015-19  -  35 hurricanes

No sign of a rising trend there.

Of course there's much more live reporting now, which gives people the impression there are more hurricanes. And of course there's much more coastal development in hurricane prone areas meaning that there's a lot more costly damage when a hurricane hits.

2021 seems a very low hurricane count. I'm seeing the figure of 2.

Category One – Winds 74-95 mph
Very dangerous winds will produce some damage
Minor damage to exterior of homes
Toppled tree branches, uprooting of smaller trees
Extensive damage to power lines, power outages
Category Two – Winds 96-110 mph
Extremely dangerous winds will cause extensive damage
Major damage to exterior of homes
Uprooting of small trees and many roads blocked
Guaranteed power outages for long periods of time – days to weeks
Category Three – Winds 111-129 mph
Devastating damage will occur
Extensive damage to exterior of homes
Many trees uprooted and many roads blocked
Extremely limited availability of water and electricity
Category Four – Winds 130-156 mph
Catastrophic damage will occur
Loss of roof structure and/or some exterior walls
Most trees uprooted and most power lines down
Isolated residential areas due to debris pile up
Power outages lasting for weeks to months
Category Five – Winds greater than 157 mph
Catastrophic damage will occur
A high percentage of homes will be destroyed
Fallen trees and power lines isolate residential areas

Re: Huricane Season 2021

'Potential disaster in the making,' forecasters eye major threat in the Gulf

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, with the crest of it occurring on Sept. 10.

Hurricane watch in effect for New Orleans as Ida heads for Gulf Coast

73e00eb9c0fb347955e64d5ec6423350

ouch IDA forecast to reach Category 4 strength as Louisiana coast braces for direct hit

Category 4 strength with winds estimated at 140 mph.

The incoming storm could provide a test for the city's levee system, which was reconstructed after Hurricane Katrina. The system's failure in the 2005 storm helped flood 80% of the city, with areas under 6 to 20 feet of water.

Ida is forecast to hit the area Sunday – 16 years to the day that Katrina made landfall in Louisiana and Mississippi as a catastrophic Category 3 storm. Nearly 2,000 people died during Katrina and damage was reportedly $125 billion, according to NOAA.

Re: Huricane Season 2021

Much like the wild fires in California done its damage.
In Ida's wake, Louisiana faces a month with no power as heat soars

Smaller supply stations is one way to keep the power on. Another is more underground cabling...

1.3 million customers were without power about 48 hours after the storm made landfall, most of them in Louisiana, according to PowerOutage https://poweroutage.us, which gathers data from U.S. utility companies.

Re: Huricane Season 2021

It may have been a week but the effects of IDA have not gone away. sure this is the damage from coming a shore but the rain did as much damage as it followed a coastal course after coming onto land with many power problems with much floodng.

Hurricane Ida aftermath will worsen supply chain bottlenecks and lead to even more shortages and price hikes, experts warnAAO6PJe.img?h=600&w=799&m=6&q=60&o=f&l=f

Re: Huricane Season 2021

We have had some more storms generate a lot of damage to the US this year and while I missed a few the lingering effects are still there for those in Louisiana still in power outages.
They pass with lots of rain that cause flash floods to damaging roads and more.
we are already seeing that Nicholas passed by and then we have Odette headed well offshore of Nova Scotia in Canada to be followed by Tropical Storm Peter, the 16th named storm of the season, was centered about 435 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands and now we have Tropical Storm Rose develops, 595 km west-southwest of Cabo Verde Island

Re: Huricane Season 2021

Its hard to believe that help has not gotten to some after IDA rolled through. More than a month after Hurricane Ida devastated Louisiana, residents are still waiting for FEMA assistance. Dad, daughter living out of truck, a month after Ida destroyed home

Fema would "probably start placing trailers" for people like Guidry "sometime in the November time frame."

He said the reason he didn't get approved for money from FEMA is because he couldn't prove he owned the property. FEMA used to require people to provide a deed but they changed that recently. You can give them a letter from a local mayor who says you own, or a home improvement receipt or proof that you paid property taxes. Sterling went digging, looking for proof. He even went to the tax office.

But the office was closed until further notice and the number was disconnected.

CBS News called FEMA back, and that's when they did something very rare. They accepted a handwritten, signed letter from Guidry that said he has "lived on the property for 31 years." He wrote that his mother passed away two years ago, "but before she died she told me that the property is mine."

FEMA has fast-tracked Guidry's case, and as early as Wednesday, it is expected to approve him and give him up to $36,000 so he can rebuild his home. Guidry told Begnaud he has $200 to his name, and there are thousands of people like him in southeast Louisiana right now.

Wow when bad luck is all the luck you have...
