DEVELOPING: New tropical storm brewing in Atlantic

DEVELOPING: New tropical storm brewing in Atlantic
(Miami Herald) – We know many of you have unboxed the Christmas lights and thoughts of facing your [insert politician name]-loving nephew over Thanksgiving dinner has you dreading the holiday season. But keep this in your thoughts, too: it’s still hurricane season. The National Hurricane Center has plopped an “X” on the map and a cone that shows a disturbance out in the Atlantic that, if you extrapolate the cone way, way outward, takes it on a path toward Florida. But don’t do that. It’’s far too early and it’ll only frighten the dog. Here’s what we know now:

“A tropical wave located several hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms,” the hurricane center said in its 7 a.m. Saturday advisory. This is the important part: “Development of this system is not expected during the next couple of days due to unfavorable environmental conditions. However, some subtropical or tropical development is possible around the middle of next week when the system moves near or to the north of the Greater Antilles.”

DEVELOPING: Severe Weather Outbreak, Including Threat of Tornadoes Targets the South
Nov 05, 2018 11:55 am
DEVELOPING: Severe Weather Outbreak, Including Threat of Tornadoes Targets the South
(The Weather Channel) An outbreak of severe thunderstorms packing damaging winds and tornadoes is likely to begin this afternoon over a swath of the South, continuing well into the overnight hours. This threat of severe weather will then spread into the East Tuesday. A powerful jet stream is carving into the central U.S. Ahead of this powerful jet-stream, warmer and more humid air will surge northward, with dew points
into the 60s possibly as far north as portions of the Ohio River Valley Monday and mid-Atlantic states Tuesday – plenty moist for severe weather. The strong upper-level winds with colder air aloft and ample warm and humid air near the ground will help create an unstable atmosphere in the South as a cold front approaches, igniting severe thunderstorms.

Super Typhoon Yutu, the most powerful tropical cyclone on Earth in 2018, barrels towards Northern Mariana Islands
Oct 24, 2018 10:16 am
Super Typhoon Yutu, the most powerful tropical cyclone on Earth in 2018, barrels towards Northern Mariana Islands
(AccuWeather) Super Typhoon Yutu will bring risks ranging from flooding and destructive winds and dangerous seas to Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. Yutu quickly strengthened from a tropical depression on Sunday into a super typhoon by Wednesday as it became the strongest tropical cyclone so far this year. A direct hit is expected on Tinian and Saipan on Wednesday night, dealing a catastrophic blow to both islands.

A northwest track into Thursday will take the center of the tropical cyclone across both Tinian and Saipan, bringing winds in excess of 240 km/h (150 mph). Winds of this magnitude can completely destroy homes and businesses and leave areas without power for a week or longer. While Guam and Rota are expected to dodge the worst impacts, there can still be damaging winds across Rota and locally damaging winds across Guam into Thursday.

2018 Hurricane season most powerful on record…
Oct 24, 2018 09:10 am
2018 Hurricane season most powerful on record…
(USA Today) The oceans near North America have been angry this year. When all the hurricanes and tropical storms that have formed in the Atlantic and eastern Pacific Oceans this year are added together, the 2018 hurricane season is the most active season ever recorded, Colorado State University meteorologist Phil Klotzbach announced Tuesday. Florence and Michael were the most destructive storms in the Atlantic,
while the eastern Pacific featured several powerhouse storms, including Lane, Rosa, Sergio and now, Willa. To determine the strength of a given season, scientists use the “Accumulated Cyclone Energy” (ACE) index, which adds together the intensity and duration of all the tropical storms and hurricanes that formed. So far in 2018, the ACE for the Atlantic and eastern Pacific seasons together is 432 units of energy, shattering the record of 371, which was set in 1992, Klotzbach said.

Hawaiian island completely erased by powerful hurricane
Oct 24, 2018 09:15 am
Hawaiian island completely erased by powerful hurricane
(The Guardian) A piece of the United States has been dramatically wiped off the map after an island in Hawaii was washed away by a powerful hurricane. East Island, a remote spit of gravel and sand that sat atop a coral reef, has vanished after having this misfortune to come into contact with Hurricane Walaka, an intense storm that surged past Hawaii earlier this month. Scientists have confirmed the disappearance of the 11-acre island after comparing satellite images of the surrounding French Frigate Shoals, part of an
enormous protected marine area in the northwestern Hawaiian Islands. “I uttered a swear word. I had a holy cow moment, somewhat in disbelief that it had disappeared,” said Chip Fletcher, a professor of earth sciences at the University of Hawaii. Fletcher and his colleagues were in the process of researching East Island through drone videos and taking samples of sand and corals to ascertain the age of the island and gauge its future prospects in the face of climate change.

Violent storm drops huge hail, Produces massive hail accumulations in Rome, Italy
(The Watchers) Intense storms brought heavy rain, strong winds and up to tennis-ball-sized hail to Rome, Italy on the evening of October 21, 2018. The city was brought to a standstill, forcing some of the drivers in the city’s eastern part to abandon their cars and hide from the storm as massive chunks of ice started falling from the sky. The 4th-century basilica of San Sebastiano Fuori le Mura was flooded in up to 50 cm (1.6 feet) of water. Similar events took place in Florence and Pisa.

Northern Italy, as well as Sicily, were also affected by the storm. The Italian Civil Protection department has issued an orange warning for bad weather in four regions of the country, with nearly the entire south under a yellow warning, according to ANSA. “Moderately critical” (orange) warnings for storm risk in Basilicata and Molise and hydrogeological risk in Campania and Puglia. A yellow alert is in place for storm, flooding, and hydrogeological risk in Abruzzo, Calabria, Lazio, Molise, Puglia and Sicily. Farmers’ association Coldiretti called it a “calamity for Italian farming” with millions of euros in losses.”

UPDATE: Major Hurricane Willa to Make Landfall in Mexico Tuesday With Destructive Winds, Storm Surge and Flooding Rain
Oct 23, 2018 03:18 pm
UPDATE: Major Hurricane Willa to Make Landfall in Mexico Tuesday With Destructive Winds, Storm Surge and Flooding Rain
(The Weather Channel) Willa is passing near Las Islas Marias, Mexico and approaching the Pacific Coast of mainland Mexico where it will make landfall later Tuesday possibly as a major hurricane with destructive winds, life-threatening storm surge and flooding rainfall. For a brief time on Monday, Willa was a Category 5 hurricane
but it has steadily weakened since then due to an eyewall replacement cycle and increasing wind shear. That said, Willa is still a dangerous hurricane threat for Mexico and all preparations should be complete. A hurricane warning is in effect from San Blas to Mazatlán, including Las Islas Marias. A tropical storm warning is in effect from Playa Perula to San Blas and from north of Mazatlán to Bahia Tempehuaya.

UPDATE: Hurricane Willa Strengthens Into a Category 5 in Eastern Pacific; Poses Danger to Mexico on Tuesday
(The Weather Channel) Hurricane Willa has intensified into a Category 5 in the eastern Pacific Ocean and will threaten Mexico with destructive winds, life-threatening storm surge and flooding rainfall as it makes landfall on Tuesday. A hurricane warning is in effect from San Blas to Mazatlán, including Las Islas Marias. A tropical storm warning is in effect from Playa Perula to San Blas and from north of Mazatlán to Bahia Tempehuaya.
Willa is tracking northward and will turn to the northeast by Tuesday. It should approach landfall along the southwestern coast of mainland Mexico on Tuesday, which is expected to occur anywhere from near Mazatlán to the north of Puerto Vallarta. Tropical storm conditions (39- to 73-mph winds) could arrive as early as Tuesday morning in the hurricane warning area. By Tuesday afternoon, hurricane conditions (74-plus-mph winds) will develop along that same stretch of the coastline.

DEVELOPING: Category 4 hurricane aims for Mexico…
(AP) Hurricane Willa has grown rapidly into an “extremely dangerous” near-Category 5 storm in the eastern Pacific, on a path to smash into Mexico’s western coast between Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta by Wednesday. The governments of Sinaloa and Nayarit states ordered coastal region schools to close on Monday and began preparing emergency shelters ahead of the onslaught. The U.S. National Hurricane
Center said that Willa could “produce life-threatening storm surge, wind and rainfall over portions of southwestern and west-central Mexico beginning on Tuesday.” It predicted that Willa could become a Category 5 hurricane later Monday, generating life-threatening surf and rip tide conditions. A hurricane warning was posted for Mexico’s western coast between San Blas and Mazatlan, including the Islas Marias, a nature reserve and federal prison directly in the forecast track of the storm.

Tornadoes are shifting farther East and no one knows why
Oct 19, 2018 10:04 am
Tornadoes are shifting farther East and no one knows why
(Phys.Org) Over the past few decades, tornadoes have been shifting—decreasing in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas but spinning up more in states along the Mississippi River and farther east, a new study shows. Scientists aren’t quite certain why. Tornado activity is increasing most in Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa and parts of Ohio and Michigan, according to a study in Wednesday’s journal Climate and Atmospheric Science. There has
been a slight decrease in the Great Plains, with the biggest drop in central and eastern Texas. Even with the decline, Texas still gets the most tornadoes of any state. The shift could be deadly because the area with increasing tornado activity is bigger and home to more people, said study lead author Victor Gensini, a professor of atmospheric sciences at Northern Illinois University. Also, more people live in vulnerable mobile homes and tornadoes are more likely to happen at night in those places, he said.

Hurricane Michael’s devastation continues with more deaths reported in Florida

Hurricane Michael’s devastation continues with more deaths reported in Florida
(CNN) Six days after Hurricane Michael pulverized parts of the Florida Panhandle, officials had more grim and devastating news. The death toll from the storm soared Tuesday to 19 in the state, with a dozen victims in hard-hit Bay County, according to authorities. There were no details yet on how the people died, only that the county has tied the 12 deaths to the Category 4 storm, up from four reported deaths on Monday.
It appeared one of the newly reported deaths was a man whose body was discovered by a search dog in the decimated city of Mexico Beach. Cpt. Virgil Watson of the sheriff’s office in Jackson County, along with the border with Alabama, said three people had been killed there. In total, the storm has killed 29 people across four Southern US states, officials said. Officials have said six people died in Virginia, three died in North Carolina and one person was killed in Georgia.

Hurricanes are rapidly exploding in strength and here’s why
Oct 14, 2018 10:38 pm
Hurricanes are rapidly exploding in strength and here’s why
(The Washington Post) The unforgettable thing about record-setting Hurricane Michael will always be how rapidly it became a near-Category 5 storm, perfectly timed for a sneak attack on the Florida Panhandle. On Tuesday morning, Floridians knew a storm was coming but not how strong it would be. As of 5 a.m., Michael was a strong Category 1 hurricane with a minimum pressure of 973 millibars, a measure of atmospheric
pressure indicating that air is rising in the storm, pulling winds toward its center. The official forecast took the storm up to mid-Category 3 at landfall. But 24 hours later, Michael was already far stronger: It now had 140 mph winds and a pressure falling sharply. The wind speed increased 45 mph in just 24 hours, representing a leap from Category 1 to Category 4 — and the storm wasn’t done intensifying.

DEVELOPING: Portugal Is Facing the Region’s Strongest Atlantic Storm Since 1842
(Bloomberg) After a three-week journey around the Atlantic Ocean, Leslie was on track to make landfall at Portugal’s coast late Saturday with hurricane-force winds — only the third time in 176 years that a storm this powerful has made it to the Iberian Peninsula. Storm warnings cover Portugal, according to the Portuguese Institute for Sea and Atmosphere. Leslie’s sustained winds fell to 75 miles an hour, the minimum to qualify as a hurricane,
at midday Saturday as it raced toward the coast at more than 30 mph. The storm was about 315 kilometers (195 miles) west-southwest of Lisbon at 4 p.m. local time. Leslie is forecast to be a powerful post-tropical cyclone by the time it reaches the Iberian peninsula. After landfall, rapid weakening is anticipated, and Leslie is forecast to degenerate into a broad low-pressure area over Spain in a day or so. The storm could cause $4 billion to $5 billion in economic impacts as it crosses the peninsula, according to Chuck Watson, a disaster modeler with Enki Research.

Hurricane Michael leaves friends, relatives searching for thousands of people…
(Miami Herald) On Day 2 after Hurricane Michael made landfall, search and rescue was still underway, state emergency officials said Friday — as more emphasis was beginning to shift to the “search.” Thousands of people had been informally reported missing to local authorities, the Red Cross and the state, as people looked for their friends and relatives. The Florida Panhandle is largely populated by small towns, spread out across dense, forested areas, which only worsened post-disaster communications problems when cellphone
towers and internet services went out. Locating people was a top priority for emergency crews on Friday. Officials said they similarly received inquiries about thousands of people who were missing in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Irma last year as crews fanned out across the Keys to reduce that number. However, Alan Harris, Seminole County Emergency Management Director, told the state Emergency Operations Center during its 8:30 a.m. briefing that so far,

Cyclone Titli strikes Eastern India, Multiple deaths and destruction reported

Cyclone Titli strikes Eastern India, Multiple deaths and destruction reported
(The Daily Telegraph) A cyclone has slammed into India’s eastern seaboard, killing at least five people, destroying huts, uprooting trees, snapping telephone poles and power lines and leaving hundreds of thousands without electricity. Strong gusts caused a storm surge with waters inundating low-lying areas in the eastern states of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, and the winds, on par with a Category 2 hurricane, wreaked havoc on infrastructure, blocking roads and hampering emergency work.
“Five people died due to falling trees and a wall collapse,” Disaster Management Commissioner of Andhra Pradesh D. Varaprasad told Reuters, adding drinking water shortages were a concern in many places due to electricity failure and generator outages. Tropical cyclone “Titli,” with gusts of up to 165 km/h, made landfall in the Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh in the early hours of Thursday, the India Meteorological Department said.

AFTERMATH: Hurricane Michael Leaves Catastrophic Damage To Florida Panhandle
(AP) The devastation inflicted by Hurricane Michael came into focus Thursday with rows upon rows of homes found smashed to pieces, and rescue crews struggling to enter stricken areas in hopes of accounting for hundreds of people who may have stayed behind. At least three deaths were blamed on Michael, the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S. in over 50 years, and it wasn’t done yet: Though
reduced to a tropical storm, it brought flash flooding to North Carolina and Virginia, soaking areas still recovering from Hurricane Florence. Under a clear blue sky, families living along the Florida Panhandle emerged from shelters and hotels to a perilous landscape of shattered homes and shopping centers, wailing sirens and hovering helicopters. Gov. Rick Scott said the Panhandle awoke to “unimaginable destruction.”

Hurricane Michael has left at least 16 dead
(The New York Times) Hurricane Michael’s death toll rose to 16 on Friday and was expected to climb higher as emergency workers searched rubble and the storm’s grim consequences stretched from the Florida Panhandle into Virginia. Rescue teams were in the early stages of combing a region razed by a Category 4 hurricane that flattened blocks, collapsed buildings and left infrastructure crippled. Some of the hardest-hit
communities have yet to report any fatalities, and although officials said they hoped they would find survivors, a resigned gloom was setting in throughout the disaster zone. Dr. Jay Radtke, the medical examiner for some of the areas of most concern, including Panama City and Mexico Beach, said he could not release any information on the number of dead in the six Panhandle counties under his jurisdiction. “We are swamped,” he said. “It’s a disaster zone down here.”

Hurricane Michael spawns ‘monster’ mosquitoes Five Times normal size with painful bite

Hurricane Michael spawns ‘monster’ mosquitoes Five Times normal size with painful bite
(The Sun) The hurricanes which have battered the States in recent months have spawned billions of highly-aggressive ‘monster’ mosquitoes. The giant bloodsuckers have a voracious appetite, zebra stripes and are FIVE TIMES bigger than other flood mozzies. The eggs of the Psorophora ciliata –  known as gallnippers – can lie dormant for years until the right kind of floodwaters come along, then they hatch in huge swarms.
And experts warn the pain of a bite from one of these mega-mozzies – which can grow to more than one inch long – can feel like you are being stabbed with a needle. Gallnippers can strike day and night and due to their large size they can bite through clothing and are immune to regular insect repellent. Assistant professor in the Department of Entomology at North Carolina State University Michael H. Reiskind said they are pretty hard to miss.

Toxic Red Tide Could Sicken People as Hurricane Michael Pushes It Ashore
Oct 11, 2018 09:25 am
Toxic Red Tide Could Sicken People as Hurricane Michael Pushes It Ashore
(Bloomberg) — Hurricane Michael could push this season’s toxic red tide inland, exposing more people to the dangerous health effects of record algae bloom that has bedeviled much of Florida’s coast. The hurricane is expected to generate a storm surge as great as 14 feet along parts of the Florida Panhandle, where it made landfall early Wednesday afternoon. That part of the coast that has seen some of the worst
concentrations this year of red tide, a variety of algae that kills fish and releases toxins that cause respiratory symptoms in humans similar to tear gas. Hurricane Michael could carry that algae past the beaches and into neighborhoods, scientists warn. “A storm surge or king tide could bring red tide up onto land,” Larry Brand, a professor in the Department of Marine Biology and Ecology at the University of Miami, said by email. “The toxin would get into the air and people would be breathing it.”

Radical Leftists Attack Gov. Rick Scott’s Climate Record as Hurricane Michael Bears Down on Florida
103
Gov Rick Scott APAssociated Press
10 Oct 2018111
Florida Gov. Rick Scott has been extremely busy preparing his state and its residents for Category 4 Hurricane Michael, which is slamming into the area on Wednesday, while his opponents are attacking him for being a climate change denier.
Scott, a Republican, is seeking a U.S. Senate seat, making him a target for leftist environmentalists who blame extreme weather on manmade climate change.
The Guardian sought out a Florida Sierra Club director to make the case against Scott: “But as the term-limited governor attempts to become a U.S. senator, scrutiny is again falling upon his record in office and what his opponents claim are policies that support portrayals of him as a climate-change denier.”
“He stands up in front of Floridians, and he says: ‘Time to abandon your homes, you better escape before the hurricane comes,’” Frank Jackalone told the Guardian.
The Sierra Club and other climate change zealots claim that rising sea temperatures contribute to the frequency and strength of major hurricanes.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday warned Hurricane Michael is the “worst storm” that the Florida Panhandle has seen in 100 years.
Gaining fury with every passing hour, Hurricane Michael closed in on the Florida shoreline with potentially catastrophic winds of 150 mph, the most powerful storm on record to menace the stretch of fishing towns, military bases and spring-break beaches.

— NWS (@NWS) October 10, 2018

“This is the worst storm that our Florida Panhandle has seen in a century,” Scott told reporters. “Hurricane Michael is upon us, and now is the time to seek refuge.”

Earlier, the Flordia governor tweeted: “The time for evacuating along the coast has come and gone. First responders will not be able to come out in the middle of the storm. If you chose to stay in an evacuation zone, you must SEEK REFUGE IMMEDIATELY.”

— Rick Scott (@FLGovScott) October 10, 2018
With more than 375,000 people up and down the Gulf Coast warned to evacuate, the hurricane’s leading edge began lashing the white-sand shoreline with tropical storm-force winds, rain and rising seas before daybreak, hours before Michael’s center was expected to blow ashore.

Shocking footage of Hurricane Michael slamming Panama City, Florida, is making the rounds on social media on Wednesday. Videos captured by meteorologists and storm chasers show potentially catastrophic winds damaging structures across the area.
Hurricane Michael made landfall Wednesday afternoon near Mexico Beach, Florida, as a Category 4 storm with 155 mph winds, according to the Associated Press. “Hurricane Michael has made landfall, and we are continuing to prepare rapid response efforts. We have trucks loaded with tons of food, water, and other critical supplies ready to move in- including 1.5 million Meals Ready-to-Eat and 1 million gallons of water,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement shortly after the storm made landfall.Earlier Wednesday, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator Brock Long warned Florida Panhandle residents that Michael is a “hurricane of the worst kind” and said 3,000 FEMA employees are ready to assist those impacted by the storm in Florida and Georgia. “The citizens in Georgia need to wake up and pay attention,” he said during a press conference. ”Bottom line is this storm will be the worst storm Southwest and Central Georgia has seen in many decades, if not the worse storm.”

Hurricane Michael Expected to Be Near Category 4 at Landfall
Oct 09, 2018 10:36 pm
Hurricane Michael Expected to Be Near Category 4 at Landfall
(The New York Times) Hurricane Michael strengthened into a Category 3 storm on Tuesday, packing 120 mile-per-hour winds and on a path to make landfall in the Florida Panhandle as the most powerful hurricane to strike the mainland United States so far this year. The worst is still to come as the storm draws closer to the
coastline and becomes better organized: Forecasters expect it to strengthen overnight and be near Category 4 strength when it blows ashore. Governors in at least three states have declared emergencies, and the local authorities are urging people to evacuate or to fortify their homes ahead of the storm.

Florida senator warns Floridians – ‘Do not try to ride this one out’

Florida senator warns Floridians – ‘Do not try to ride this one out’
(Express) Hurricane Michael is continuing to rampage its way towards the Florida panhandle as a Category 2 Hurricane – Florida Senator Bill Nelson has warned residents they should not try to “ride this out” and to heed evacuation orders. Hurricane Michael’s devastating force has meant a state of emergency has been declared in 35 Florida counties as the category two storm is due to bear down on the state’s panhandle.
CNN reporters said that hurricane force winds could be felt as far as Tallahassee – meaning the devastation of brought by the storm will not be limited only to coastal areas. Hurricane Michael could bring howling winds of up to 129mph, enough to tear roofs from homes and pose a serious threat to life and personal safety. Speaking to CNN, the Florida senator urged local residents to listen to officials to to heed mandatory evacuation orders and not attempt to see out the storm in their homes.

UPDATE: Michael Reaches Hurricane Strength, Could Strike Florida as Category 3

UPDATE: Michael Reaches Hurricane Strength, Could Strike Florida as Category 3
(CBN News) A tropical weather system rapidly strengthened into Hurricane Michael off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and forecasters said it was moving Monday into the Gulf of Mexico where warm waters would continue to fuel its development. Michael could strengthen into a major hurricane with winds topping 111 mph (178 kph) by Tuesday night before an expected strike on Florida’s Panhandle or Big Bend, according to the National Hurricane Center. By 11 a.m. Monday, Michael’s top sustained winds were around 75 mph (120 kph).

The storm was centered about 50 miles (80 kilometers) off the western tip of Cuba, and about 140 miles (220 kilometers) east-northeast of Cozumel, Mexico. It was moving north around 7 mph (11 kph). Since the storm will spend two to three days over the Gulf, which has very warm water temperatures and favorable atmospheric conditions, “there is a real possibility that Michael will strengthen to a major hurricane before landfall,” Robbie Berg, a hurricane specialist at the Miami-based storm forecasting hub, wrote in an advisory.

DEVELOPING: Florida declares State of Emergency ahead of dangerous hurricane
(Express) Florida Governor Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency due to the high possibility of Tropical Storm Michael strengthening to a dangerous hurricane as it heads to the US coast. The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) upgraded the tropical depression in the Caribbean to a tropical storm on Sunday, stating its winds had reached 40 miles per hour. The NHC also added in its advisory that Michael is likely to turn into a hurricane by Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.
Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for 26 counties in the Panhandle and Big Bend coastal region of northern Florida. He said: ”Our state understands how serious tropical weather is and how devastating any hurricane or tropical storm can be. “As we continue to monitor this storm’s path toward Florida, it is critically important that our communities have every available resource to keep everyone safe.

Developing Tropical Storm Could Threaten U.S. Gulf Coast
Oct 06, 2018 05:36 pm
Developing Tropical Storm Could Threaten U.S. Gulf Coast
(BloombergQuint) A collection of thunderstorms over the Caribbean is likely to strengthen into a tropical storm that could strike the Gulf Coast next week between Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle. The system, northeast of Honduras, has a 70 percent chance of becoming Tropical Storm Michael in the next five days, the National Hurricane Center said Friday. A strike along the Gulf Coast could come as early as Tuesday
night, but Wednesday is more likely, said Jeff Masters, co-founder of Weather Underground. “I’m thinking somewhere between a 50 mile (81 kilometer) per hour tropical storm that’s really no big deal — and a Category 1 hurricane with 90 mile per hour winds,” Masters said. “Oil rigs would want to start evacuating Tuesday.” Alabama, Mississippi and the Florida panhandled will get the worst of the wind and rain, Masters said.

Deadly flooding strikes Italy, Streets disappear, Fatalities reported
(Express) Italy has been hit by major flooding after relentless rainfall battered most of the southern Italian regions, killing a mother and her son. Extreme weather in the south of Italy caused major flooding in Sicily, Calabria and Puglia overnight. In Catania, Sicily, roads turned into rivers lifting the asphalt and flooding houses and shops. The unceasing rainfall also caused the death of a mother and her son in Lamezia Terme, Calabria.
The bodies of the mother and one of her sons were found by the bed of a stream by the firefighters. Her second son is still missing and emergency services have deployed helicopters for the search. Emergency services were called for assistance 70 times overnight and 50 more interventions are on the way in the aftermath of the extreme overnight weather. According to SevereWeather.eu extreme threat warnings for flash flooding in southern Italy are in place until October 6.

Walaka and Kong-rey Become First Simultaneous Category 5 Storms in 13 Years
Oct 4, 2018 | 0  |     
Walaka and Kong-rey Become First Simultaneous Category 5 Storms in 13 Years
(The Weather Channel) Hurricane Walaka and Super Typhoon Kong-rey attained Category 5 strength in the Pacific Ocean on Monday, marking the first time in 13 years two storms of that intensity have roamed the tropics simultaneously. Walaka was deemed a Category 5 by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center at 8 p.m. EDT Monday while it was well to the southwest of Hawaii. Kong-rey hit this top rating on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale a few hours later at 11 p.m. EDT Monday, according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. The last time two Category 5 strength typhoons or hurricanes coexisted was July 17, 2005, according to Dr. Phil Klotzbach, a tropical scientist at Colorado State University. On that day Hurricane Emily was raging through the western Caribbean as Super Typhoon Haitang pushed toward Taiwan over the western Pacific waters.

Giant supervolcano hidden beneath California could be greater threat than Yellowstone volcano

Giant supervolcano hidden beneath California could be greater threat than Yellowstone volcano
A giant supervolcano hidden beneath California could be an equal if not greater threat to the US than Yellowstone volcano, scientists have revealed. The 20-mile long Long Valley Caldera in eastern California is one of the world’s largest volcanic calderas. The supervolcano measures approximately 10 miles in width and is up to 3,000 ft deep.
But very few people know about this supervolcano east of the central Sierra Nevada Range, making it a potentially greater threat than Yellowstone volcano. And a study published this August in the science journal GeoScienceWorld, has found evidence of ground deformation at the supervolcano. Geologists who led the study found “ongoing uplift suggests new magma may have intruded into the reservoir” since at least 1978.

Typhoon “Kong-rey” rapidly intensifies into 6th super typhoon of 2018 Pacific season

Typhoon “Kong-rey” rapidly intensifies into 6th super typhoon of 2018 Pacific season
Less than a week after Typhoon Trami injured dozens of people, Japan is facing Super Typhoon Kong-Rey, expected to hit the island on Thursday or Friday. Kong-Rey began as a tropical depression on Saturday and after growing in strength, officially became a typhoon on Sunday at 8 p.m. HKT. Around 8 a.m. on Monday, the Hong Kong Observatory classified it as a severe typhoon. The latest report, issued at 10 p.m., said the storm had sustained winds of 185 kilometers per hour.
After rapidly intensifying over the last few days, Kong-Rey will likely threaten Japan’s Ryukyu Islands and possibly Okinawa, Japan, on Thursday or Friday local time, according to The Weather Channel. Kadena Air Base is located in Okinawa, which serves as home base for members of the 18th Wing of the United States Air Force. “Low vertical wind shear, excellent radial outflow and warm sea surface temperatures are supportive of rapid intensification,” the Joint Typhoon Warning Center advised.

UPDATE: Cyclone strikes Greece and Turkey, leaving at least 3 people missing
Medicane “Cindy,” also known as Zorbas, as named by Freie Universität Berlin, developed in the Mediterranean Sea on September 27, 2018, and moved past the southwestern tip of Peloponnese, Greece on September 29 with winds of 90 km/h (55 mph) and gusts to 105 km/h (65 mph). The storm left three people missing in Greece before it reached Turkey, causing severe flash flooding. The hardest hit was Messinia in the southeast of the Peloponnese peninsula.
The coastal capital of Kalamata and seaside villages like Methoni and Finikounda were inundated by waves. Other hard-hit areas include the northern part of the island of Evia, where three people went missing on September 30. Strong winds caused tree and power line damage, forcing school closures in parts of the country, including capital Athens were heavy rain flooded streets and homes.

Typhoon “Trami” strikes Japan, leaving 4 dead and missing, 170 injured and 1.3 million without power
Train services across Tokyo were today canceled in an unprecedented move as deadly Typhoon Trami made landfall in Japan, with record winds sweeping past the capital. East Japan Railway said it would stop all train services in the Tokyo metropolitan area on Sunday night, in what is thought to be the first time in the company’s history, according to Japan’s public broadcaster NHK. And West Japan Railway and Central Japan railway said most local and bullet trains would be suspended while Tokyo Metro
announced it would halt some subway trains. Trains were canceled in Tokyo as the powerful typhoon moved past Japan’s capital. Further travel chaos was sparked as some 250 flights were canceled by airlines on Monday, according to NHK. Record winds of 160kph (99mph) swept the Tokyo area overnight, NHK reported. Two people have been killed by the typhoon and about 170 others have been injured, while a further two people are missing, NHK said. And the typhoon has reportedly left up to 1.3 million homes with no power across Japan.

DEVELOPING: Tropical Storm Leslie to become next Atlantic hurricane
Atlantic hurricane season began on June 1 ending on November 30, and is a time in which the Atlantic sees an increase in tropical cyclones. Currently swirling through the Atlantic is tropical storm Leslie, located 615 miles east of Bermuda. With maximum sustained winds of 60mph with higher gusts, Leslie is expected to move toward the west-southwest at 5mph. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) have forecast that Leslie will strengthen to hurricane status by tomorrow (Tuesday). The weather experts said: “Additional gradual strengthening is expected during the next 48 hours and Leslie is forecast to become a hurricane on Tuesday or Tuesday night.” Meteorologists began tracking the subtropical system, which after strengthening was named Leslie, on September 23. After continuing to increase in strength, Leslie became a tropical storm on September 29.

Fully developed Medicane in Mediterranean heading toward Greece

Fully developed Medicane in Mediterranean heading toward Greece
A very dangerous and life-threatening storm dubbed Medicane “Cindy” by the EMWMC and also known as Zorbas and Zorba is now fully developed and expected to hit and move over southern Greece on September 29. The storm is bringing severe to extremely severe winds and very heavy rain, potentially resulting in widespread flash flooding and wind damage. “Medicane is perfectly visible in the Ionian sea, with the central pressure around 994 hPa and still deepening,” SWE meteorologists said.
The storm should reach its peak intensity overnight and tomorrow, September 29 with central pressure as low as 979 hPa as it tracks toward southern Greece, producing major waves and severe to extremely severe winds. “Waves could reach 10 – 15 m (33 – 50 feet) maximum height in some areas and develop a life-threatening weather situation along the coastal areas of west and north Greece, south Peloponnese and many islands across the Cyclades,” SWE warns.

Warm waters in the Atlantic will fuel stronger future cyclones

Warm waters in the Atlantic will fuel stronger future cyclones
A new study published in the journal Science has warned the average number of major hurricanes in the North Atlantic could double or triple on past years. Last year’s Atlantic Hurricane season whipped up six major hurricanes, some of which peaked at winds of 111 mph (178 kph). The hurricanes, which included Harvey, Irma and Maria, tore through the Caribbean and US East Coast causing death and destruction on an unimaginable scale.
In past years the average number of major hurricanes forming in the Atlantic typically sat around three a year. Even further back in time, around two major storms would form each year. However, scientists now fear anywhere between five and eight major hurricanes will become the norm as early as the year 2100. Hiro Murakami, a hurricane expert at the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), warned future hurricane seasons will be as destructive as last year’s. He said: “We will see more active hurricane seasons like 2017 in the future.”
