Southern states brace for flood - May 12, 2011 by dharkanjhel

St Martin Parish prisoners make sand bags in preparation for flooding on TuesdaySt Martin Parish in Louisiana deployed prisoners to aid levee protection efforts

Communities along the southern stretch of the Mississippi River are bracing for major floods as the crest of the swollen river moves downstream.

In poverty stricken areas of the Mississippi delta, the river and its tributaries have washed away crops and forced people to leave their homes.

The state of Mississippi’s riverfront gambling industry has also been hit, with all 19 casinos to shut this week.

The flooding has badly affected Memphis and other cities further upstream.

The flood crest has passed Memphis and is expected to move downstream toward New Orleans within the next three weeks, the National Weather Service said.

‘Just scared’

The Mississippi’s tributaries have also flooded. In Arkansas, on the river’s west bank, flooding along the White River forced officials to close Interstate 40, one of the busiest highways in the state.

On Thursday, the river was expected to crest in Helena, Arkansas, at 56.5ft (17.2m), 12.5ft above flood stage.

In the delta states of Mississippi and Louisiana, workers were shoring up levees to strengthen them against the coming high water.

Louisiana’s St Martin Parish gave jail inmates the task of filling sandbags to protect homes on ground that could be flooded if the authorities open a floodway to take pressure off the levees over the cities of Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

“Everybody is just scared,” St Martin Sheriff’s Deputy Ginny Higgins, who was overseeing the prisoners, told the Associated Press. “They don’t know what to do.”

Officials have said the flooding could take weeks to recede.

On Monday and Tuesday, the Mississippi River peaked at just under 48ft (14.6m) in Memphis, the US national weather service said.

That city is coping with flood levels not seen since the 1930s, which have forced people from some 1,300 homes.

The authorities have also warned residents to look out for snakes and rats which could seek shelter on higher ground.

Engorged by the spring thaw and heavy rains, the Mississippi has also caused significant flooding upstream in Illinois and Missouri.

Alabama, Georgia, and Southern U.S. Hit by Tornadoes and Severe Storms - December 27, 2010 by dharkanjhel

Posted by: Public Affairs

Our thoughts are with the families and communities in Alabama and Georgia that have been affected by the severe storms and tornados that have ripped through the region this evening and continue to impact the southern states.

Through our regional office in Atlanta, GA we have been in close contact and coordination with state emergency management officials, as they work tirelessly to meet the immediate needs of disaster survivors.

When natural disasters, such as severe storms and tornados, strike, the first responders are local emergency and public works personnel, volunteers, humanitarian organizations, and numerous private interest groups who provide emergency assistance required to protect the public’s health and safety and to meet immediate human needs.

This evening, President Obama signed an emergency declaration for Alabama, providing federal support to state and local response efforts.

  • The President’s action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all federal disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in all 67 counties in the State of Alabama.
  • Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency.  Emergency protective measures, limited to direct Federal assistance, will be provided at 75 percent Federal funding.
  • At the request of the state of Alabama, FEMA is deploying a liaison officer to the state emergency operations center to assist in coordination efforts as the state continues to respond and begins to recover from this devastating storm outbreak.

More severe weather is forecasted throughout the south, so make sure you’re taking steps to stay safe before, during, and after the storm:

  • Follow the instructions of state and local officials,
  • Listen to local radio or TV stations for updated emergency information,
  • Make sure you have a safe place to go in case severe weather approaches,
  • Familiarize yourself with severe weather watch/warning terms
    • Severe Thunderstorm Watch: Tells you when and where severe thunderstorms are likely to occur. Watch the sky and stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, commercial radio, or television for information.
    • Severe Thunderstorm Warning: Issued when severe weather has been reported by spotters or indicated by radar. Warnings indicate imminent danger to life and property to those in the path of the storm.
    • Tornado Watch: Tornadoes are possible. Remain alert for approaching storms. Watch the sky and stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, commercial radio, or television for information.
    • Tornado Warning: A tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. Take shelter immediately.

Hurricane Season 2011: Tropical Cyclone Bune (Southern Pacific Ocean) - December 10, 2010 by dharkanjhel



March 25, 2011

GOES-11 Satellite Sees Bune Strengthen to a Cyclone

Tropical Storm Bune strengthened into a Cyclone on March 25 and the GOES-11 satellite captured a stunning infrared view of it from space.

The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite called GOES-11 is in a geostationary orbit and provides weather imagery for the western U.S. but its view reaches into the western and southern Pacific Ocean. An object in a geostationary orbit appears motionless, at a fixed position in the sky, to ground observers. The infrared image the GOES-11 satellite captured on March 25 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT) showed a well-organized Tropical Cyclone Bune moving through the southern Pacific Ocean.

GOES satellites are operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and images and animations of GOES data are created by NASA’s GOES Project, located at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.

At 0600 UTC (2 a.m. EDT) on March 25, Cyclone Bune had maximum sustained winds near 75 knots (86 mph/138 kmh). It was located about 340 nautical miles southeast of Nadi, Fiji near 22.5 South latitude and 179.2 West longitude. It was moving toward the south-southeast near 5 knots (6 mph/9 kmh) and toward northeastern New Zealand.

Infrared satellite imagery, such as that from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) that flies on NASA’s Aqua satellite showed that there is strong convective (rapidly rising air forming thunderstorms) banding (bands of thunderstorms) west of the center of Bune’s circulation. However, those bands of thunderstorms are fragmented. To the east of the center, the bands of thunderstorms appear more organized. There’s even a small eye in the center of Bune.

Because a subtropical ridge (elongated area) of high pressure is building to the southwest of Cyclone Bune, it is expected to steer the storm in a more south-southwesterly direction over the weekend. After the weekend, Bune is forecast to move to the southeast. Forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center expect Bune to weaken after 72 hours because of increasing wind shear and cooler sea surface temperatures and should become extratropical next week northeast of New Zealand.
