I wonder if there are 77 warning sirens in all of California. I haven't heard even one in all of my years here. I think they have a few along some beaches to warn swimmers. I find the water to be too cold for swimming.

In Sioux Falls they have one siren for every 2,300 folk. We'd need 15,000 sirens to achieve that kind of coverage. And I still wouldn't be able to hear one up here in the hills.

I'm not surprised they failed, the only kind of mechanical things which will reliably work during an emergency are things which were made to work on every day before the emergency. A use it or lose it mechanical law kind of thing. That law also applies to emergency generators. A couple of times in my life I've actually seen one of those darned emergency generators start up and run during an emergency.

I can't imagine using a system of 15,000 emergency siren's often enough to keep them working in a reliable way.

Odds of tropical depression formation strengthen to 70% by weekend as wave moves over Bahamas, toward Florida

A tropical wave over the southeastern and central Bahamas is highly likely to form into a tropical depression or possibly Tropical Storm Humberto in the next 48 hours as its projected cut across Florida, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The system has a 70 percent chance of forming into a tropical depression in the next 48 hours and an 80 percent chance of doing so in the next five days, the NHC said.

We've hit that peak where there are investigation areas all evenly spaced across both oceans, right along the ITCZ or just north of it. This condition is usually good for at least one cyclonic storm going somewhere in that zone at all times. We've been without same in the Atlantic for a few days, but there have been some typhoons hitting the Western Pacific.

Meet 15 Women Leading the Fight Against Climate Change

From sinking islands to drought-ridden savannas, women bear an outsize burden of the global—warming crisis, largely because of gender inequalities. In many parts of the world, women hold traditional roles as the primary caregivers in families and communities, and, as the main providers of food and fuel, are more vulnerable when flooding and drought occur; the U.N. estimates 80% of those who have been displaced by climate change are women.

Given their position on the front line of the climate-change battle, women are uniquely situated to be agents of change—to help find ways to mitigate the causes of global warming and to adapt to its impacts on the ground. This reality was recognized by the Paris Agreement, which specifically included the global need to further empower women in climate decision-making. Today, across the world, from boardrooms and policy positions to local communities, from science to activism, women everywhere are using their voices to take leadership and call for action on climate change.

anyone else noticed how much water is constant in the air above this country?
the missouri river has become a holding pond. a very large holding pond.
over the decades of farming and land manipulations, they have de-contoured ALL the land
into flat more flat and more flat ness.

now we have extremely flat lands, massive amounts of flat lands, all holding water.

what could possibly go amiss.

That abnormal flatness hasn't come here.

We still keep our few precious flat spots in the gold and gem museum so thieves can't as easily get at them.

Tonight’s Friday The 13th Micro Harvest Moon Won’t Happen Again For 500 More Years

Tonight Charlotte will witness one of the rarest lunar phenomena in centuries – a Micro Harvest Moon on Friday the 13th.

On average, a full moon occurring on any Friday the 13th only happens about 1% of the time, but add to that the fact that tonight’s moon is also a Harvest Moon and a Micro moon and you have one exceptionally rare (and likely superstitious) lunar occurrence.

They moved it farther offshore, I see.

Right now most of the bad weather is in that yellow thing NE of the Bahamas. The islands themselves got lucky.

I mentioned seeing a wild Ostrich around here. Now the CHP has seen and captured a wild Emu about twenty five or thirty miles south of here.

Houston weather: Tropical Storm Imelda hits Texas with rain, flooding

East Texas was facing days of heavy rains and flash flooding Wednesday as Tropical Storm Imelda, downgraded to a tropical depression, still packed a dangerous punch for millions of residents.

Tropical Storm Imelda made landfall Tuesday afternoon near Freeport, 60 miles south of Houston. Imelda, crawling north at about 5 mph, was the first named storm to slam onto Texas shores since the staggering devastation of Hurricane Harvey two years ago.

Imelda is a tropical depression now.

The wave in the Central Atlantic became Tropical Storm Jerry. It is expected to strengthen.

Humberto is now a category 3, moving eastward. It is currently causing hurricane conditions in Bermuda.

NHC: An amateur radio operator at Ports Island near the southern end of
Bermuda reported a sustained wind of 75 mph (121 km/h) and a gust to
104 mph (167 km/h) during the past hour. An amateur radio operator
in Somerset Village recently reported a sustained wind of 70 mph
(113 km/h) and a gust to 89 mph (143 km/h).

Six Named Storms at Once in Atlantic and Eastern Pacific Basins Ties Modern Record

Six named storms are currently active in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific basins, which appears to have tied a record number of combined storms at once in those two areas.

While Humberto and Kiko were spinning in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific, four new tropical cyclones formed Tuesday: Imelda and Jerry in the Atlantic Basin, and Mario and Lorena in the Eastern Pacific Basin.

Climate change in action.

As is the seemingly yearly Texas flood, when tropical disturbances stall out over the area. This is completely due to climate change. It used to happen on rare occasions, but now there's a case of it every year or two. Just ask the Coast Guard or TX National Guard, which are both out rescuing people... again.

Last night actually

International Space Station very visible tonight

NEW BEDFORD -- Look up to the night sky tonight and you’ll see the International Space Station fly over. It will first appear in the southern sky just before 8 p.m., climb high in the sky and gradually head toward the northwest before disappearing around 8:05 p.m.

“You can’t miss the ISS, even in urban areas, as it is as bright as Venus [the third brightest natural object in the sky],” AccuWeather Astronomy Blogger Dave Samuhel said. “It will appear like a plane at first, but you will notice the steady movement without flashing lights as it grows brighter,” Samuhel added.
