When Sea Levels Rise, Who Should Pay?
"We're beginning with a giant pile of dirt. Okay i'll go with it. i'll go with it. okay. It's not just any pile of dirt. It happens to be right outside of facebook's campus in the san francisco bay area where we're standing right. Now is the outboard levy of the facebook campus in menlo park. That's kevin murray. He works for the san francisco creek joint powers authority which is an agency that works on flood protection in the area. We're walking on top of that levee which surrounds the tech companies brightly colored buildings. So why does facebook need a levy. Well the company's headquarters is right on the shoreline of san francisco bay and over the last decade. They've built huge state of the art buildings on the waterfront. So the levy is protection from the bay. But kevin told me levy isn't exactly the right way to describe it because a levee is designed to protect people at has to meet engineering standards that ensure it holds up these don't those structures that are providing flood barrier now are not adequate and are subject to failure if we have a really big tide or a big wind event or a big storm surge so lauren did facebook know that when they built their they did and now the risk is getting even bigger because sea levels are rising in a hotter climate so the region is looking at building a bigger levee. Sixteen feet tall. It will cost more than one hundred million dollars and the federal government. Just preliminarily awarded about half that money. But that's raising questions about who should be footing. The bill for adapt into the consequences of climate change. Coastal cities are going to need billions of dollars to protect their shorelines from rising

Devastating Disease in Dolphins Linked to Extreme Downpours
"The gulf of mexico is home to thousands of bottlenose dolphins. The acrobatic animals can often be spotted leaping and splashing in the water but in recent years a devastating skin disease has afflicted some dolphins in the gulf and around the world research by park diagne of the marine mammal center in sausalito. California shows that climate change is to blame. He says more extreme storms affect how salty the water is in dolphins coastal habitats. Dolphins often live in bays and other areas where freshwater and saltwater mix these are dynamic have tested change with ties change with the weather changes the season. So when a big storm hits a lot of freshwater russia's out of rivers into these coastal waters and the salinity can drop dramatically that can cause lesions to develop on dolphins bodies diagne says that when the water returns to normal the lesions can heal and dolphins may recover but if the low salt levels persist in severe cases. We've seen dolphins that have died from this. Where eighty percents or so of the skin. Surface missing as climate change gets worse. Prolonged outbreaks could become more frequent and more dolphins will likely
Ever Given: The stuck boat that was both a crisis and a comedy
"Lori and morocco is the author of several books of shipping trade including trade war containers. Don't lie navigating the bluster and has been reporting on this every day for cnbc. Hello lori-ann let how are you. I'm all right. I hope you're still standing after being deluged by other requests for interviews about this. It's a it's been pretty crazy. So maybe recap for folks who have not spent the last week like most of us obsessing over a big boat What is the big boat. And and how did it get stuck in the suez canal while they're still trying to figure out the exact cause but we're looking at is you had A container ship known as the ever given. And that's considered a mega container vessel can have an upwards of twenty thousand containers so those boxes that you see when you drive down the road near near the porta. Palo facts or vancouver. Wherever you need being in canada those are the big containers at that That ever given a would be having on and so what happened was during a. It's a highly with. They're going through the canal There was a storm that hit. And when you look at a container vessel the higher up you go so this was about twelve to fourteen stories. High highly stack with these vessels are with containers. The higher you go you have sale effect just like a sailboat. So what happens is if you have a big storm and the wind is blowing like you had with a sandstorm and it came on hard. Came on quick and visibility was none okay. So you're blinded you're driving this cargo ship through a very narrow canal. The containers on the ship acted as a sale and it started to push the vessel. And so what happened was you are a pilot. You are blind whether you do you. Try to lean against the wind. So you are navigating and you're moving the wheel of the vessel against the wind. What a lotta people think. What happened is because a large vessel. It's not like when you're say you're on your pleasure bowed out in the bay or you're driving your car where you turn the wheel and automatically moves. It takes time. It takes a few minutes for The movement of your wheel versus the rudders of the boats. What happened was a lot of people. Think the pilot overcompensated and then ran. The bishop aground. And so what happened was you have this behemoth vessel loaded with an upwards of twenty thousand containers stuck in the sand

Why Some Texas Residents Now Face Huge Electricity Bills
"Think for a moment about that. Famous survey suggesting that many people would struggle to pay an emergency expense of even a few hundred dollars now think about texas where some people suddenly have utility bills in the thousands of dollars. It's a side effect of last week's storm that overcame the power grid. People who managed to keep their power are now paying for it. Christopher connelly is with member station k. e. r. a. in and joins us. Now good morning. Hi steve what's an example of the kind of costs that people face right so well. I talked to shannon mars. She has one of those big bills. She lives in frisco which is a dallas suburb with her husband. Mike and three kids in january. They paid two hundred fifty seven bucks for electricity and as of saturday. The families electric bill for the month of february was ten thousand one hundred eighty dollars and seventy six cents during those real. Yeah during those really cold days last week. The marches were paying one or two thousand dollars a day for electricity shannon. Maher said it makes her sick to her stomach to think about it too awful and there's nothing you can do and i've been really stressed about it and ten thousand dollars is a ton of money. I guess you gotta explain the texas system here. Because i get a utility bill. I pay the utility bill. I don't even necessarily know what my costs four day is. How does this even happen right. So this is wonky but but bear with me here so. Texas has a deregulated market for electricity. It is designed so that when there's a shortage of electricity of the price will go up in power. Companies will have an incentive to generate more electricity that deregulated market also for the sale of unusual policies. Like the ones. The mars is have plans with variable rates for electricity and those are the customers who are ending up with these sky high bills. The mars family spent hours trying to switch to a different company last week to find one with a more traditional fixed rate plan and normally they would be able to do that but the storm made that impossible so they were just sitting there watching the charges on their credit. Cards rack up. Does this suggest that this deregulation doesn't work well. It works great when the weather's good but you know it appears that there weren't market incentives in this market system for power providers to make sure that they were prepared to weather a massive winter storm. There have been warnings about that for years. Actually and the system broke down almost exactly like this about a decade ago. You know the other issue that we're seeing is that. The deregulated system assumes that consumers will fend for themselves that they'll find electricity plan where they won't get hosed if a big storm rolls in cable weight from the consumer rights group public citizen says. That just doesn't really happen. In reality people have a lot of different things tugging at their attention and their bandwidth and so a lot of our economic decisions are actually made on autopilot and therefore all these theories like that. We will shop for the cheapest and best plan for ourselves. They don't play out state trying to help. Now yeah so. There will be hearings looking into the issue. This week governor greg. Abbott says no one should have to pay these exorbitant bills and yesterday the public utilities commission temporarily blocked companies from sending out bills or shutting off customers power for non-payment abbots also saying that the state will force power plants to weather is so they're prepared for the next storm. I got to say this. Level of government intervention feels anathema to the way republicans have governed this state for decades. But there is so much political pressure right now to make changes because even as people are just starting to repair burst pipes and get the water running again. Christopher colleague of kera. Thanks thank

Sea Hunt - It's Still Alive: Point of No Return
"It's time for another installment of seahorn. It's still alive in this time. We're going to season four episode one titled point of no return and it premiered on january seventh nineteen sixty one sixty years ago. The episode starts out with a boat pulling up alongside coast guard cutter. The boat is dropping off a reporter. Dorothy may brooke. She is heard that. Mike nelson is on board and figures. There must be a big story. If he's involved. The captain of the cutter tells dotty that you'll have to wait three days to talk to mike. The research is about mike. Living and working out of the scuba sphere. A two hundred and fifty feet now. That was right at the beginning of the work. That the davy jacques cousteau and ed link. We're doing on underwater habitats so sea hunt was a little ahead of the game after dadi get some basic information from the three scientists on board the cutter. The scene shifts to mike underwater. He's in doubles swimming with a big bag of rocks. And he's going entire inside the scuba sere. The scuba sphere is small diving bell shaped habitat with liquid helium and oxygen tanks. Act out once. Mike is inside. He gets a call from the booth. Lieutenant totally tells him that a tropical storm is heading your way rather than hall him up. It seems that mike is going to ride it out so he strings up. His hammock gets ready for bed in gets into the sack and because he says he can't raid the refrigerator like he normally does. He settled for a bottle of liquid protein. Well you guessed it. The big storm hits and as the cutters tossed about so is the scuba sere. Suddenly one of the tanks cured to the side of the sphere breaks loose and crashes down on the hatch rendering it inoperable. Mike can't fix it and now they can't bring them up and properly decompress. The project engineer vic jennings says it will take a day to make a new hatch. Should they cut him loose. They try to get them off the bottom and ride it out but discovers fear is being dragged it gets caught on a coral formation. Two hundred fifty feet. Mike gears up with his doubles and he has some additional small tanks between the double cylinders. Not sure what they are. But there's copper tubing Spiraling up to the vows on his. Saunders looks like kind of like a still. Maybe it's helium. They never really say as his fear breaks free. Mike reid it along until the cable and telephone connections part and luckily to screw this. Fear settles when the bottom in an upright position. So mike can go back inside and he says that he needs to spend his second night in this chamber of ours. I gotta tell you mike wetsuit. Looks pretty beat up in this episode starting to peel or something like that will now. The storm has passed the cutter realizes that mike is no longer attached. They have a new door but now they have to find a habitat might goes outside and tries to inflate one of his marker. Booties but it won't work at eight atmospheres so he takes out a balloon. Blows it up a bit ties it off to a line and sends it up. Will you guessed it it bursts now. He reverts to filling up a pair of denim jeans tied off at the bottom. I remember this from my time in the navy where you could use your pants. As type of life preserver on. Mike sends the inflated pants to the surface they briefly mark the location before collapsing. But lieutenant totally thought he saw something so they stay in the area back inside scuba sphere. Mike says that he needs to conserve. Air and pray then. He remembers something from this cub scout. Days and concocts a plan to use his wetsuit. Top as a surface marker buoy. He goes back outside. Fills it up and shoots it to the surface and then ties it off to the scuba sphere dadi and or intently scanning surface suddenly dadi spots to wet suit top. Well the next thing we see. Is mike nelson signs wetsuit. Top two hundred and fifty feet dragging a new hatch cable and telephone line across the bottom. He fixes the hatch. Attach is the cable and splices in the telephone. It's cold wet work he says and he's ready to rejoin the human race. Might get back inside. He hits the hammock and sleeps through the hours of decompression. They have to bang on the sphere to wake him up once. Mike opens the hatch up. Pops dotty to give him a big hug. Mike says he must be in heaven. 'cause this is the angel he's been dreaming about what are the best of my knowledge. This is the only episode. That dadi mayfield was in. Although it appears that from the dialogue from lake that daddy was intent on marrying mike nelson or as as he puts it put a ring through his nose. Dorothy mayfield was played by the actress. Joyce meadows whether there wasn't a lot of diving in the point of no return but mike nails nelson was well ahead of the likes of george. Bon jacques cousteau and egg link in deep sea.

I'm enjoying this guy's positive. He's gotta find. I'm just I'm not here slinging speed, delivering hay and feed all these days. What? What? What area do you do? You serve us. I'm not. I'm not in Highland County Secret area. We have the big old races every year. 24 hours. Could you get me on a horse? Big? I could You get me on a horse Did come on down goes riding horses you want? Yeah. You gotta be careful. They'll throw you. I don't know if I've ever shared this when I was in trying to think what great it was. I think it was seventh grade. Maybe we were making a video project for school. Okay? And this girl I don't know what it was about, but she was like, come to my grandpa's farm. We could do this portion of the project on horses, Okay? I'm like hell, yeah. This is gonna be awesome. So they had like a big stable where there was. You could run the horses indoors and then surrounded by The big area where all these other animals well, something terrible happened. I was on a horse with another girl. And then there was other people in other horses and the horse we were on went awry and it bucked me off. Sent me flying into the air and flick flick her off. She got kicked by the horse broke her arm. And then the other horse got all riled up, kicked the other girl off. All the animals in the barn started going crazy, traumatized me. So you want to get back on that horse, But then, after watching Yellowstone get redemption by the worst Watching Yellowstone. I feel like I was meant to be on a horse. So this guy could could help me. Well being sir, Would you feel liable it all If John got back on that horse, proverbially and physically and then got kicked again?

"big storm" Discussed on KUGN 590 AM
"Done, a Talkers magazine We confined Talkers Radio talkers television list has published every week at number 10. Ladies, the focus on these big storms. There's a big storm this past week he went through the Caribbean that seemed to make landfall like Jamaica get badly hit and then went into the Yucatan. But this is late in the season for these storms. How many other how many names storms altogether Victoria? They ran out, and that's why we're in the air in the Greek alphabet. Now we went through the English alphabet. And now this is That was Hurricane Geeta. So I don't know how many more we're gonna have. But it was way out of season. We're really kind of a low they can see the Russian enduring to the end. And remember, this is late for these kind of storms. So does that mean that the world is coming to an end? Because We're not taking care of their lots of climate patterns that have changed. So yeah, that za big part of it, Although you've mentioned also, I think it is it Latina this year. Is that what this is Lanie? There's 11 years Elnino, which refers to their warmth, the temperature of the water. In the mid Pacific along the equator, and that's where somehow or other the winds begin to change. And it affects. Usually when it comes southern California La Nina is a dry winter in California, Jennifer or is it a genius? Dry and El Nino is wet, wet. Okay, so this murder should be pleasant for those of us who hoped to find solace. Too bad cause some rain. Yeah, well in the New England we have had a really dry summer a lot of droughts around the country that have been extinguished by a lot of rain. It's come up. But if you go away from the Mississippi and Ohio River valleys to the West, especially very dry, very dry summer number nine on the list our relationship with some of our friends and some of our enemies. Why we always focus on China, Russia and Iran. There have been some terror attacks this weekend in in Europe. So one wonders what? What's the lady? What stirs them up? Is it just a continuum or is there something that gets these things is there I don't begin. I don't even begin to understand why it is.
Owning a business on the front line of sea-level rise
"North Carolina's Outer Banks are dotted with vacation beaches and historic communities but the sweeping water views do not only draw tourists to give local to front row seat to sea level rise. Many like Jamie Henderson more frequent floods. Anderson is the owner of downtown books on Roanoke Island since she opened the store there eight years ago it's flooded six times with anywhere from an inch, two feet of water. Sometimes, storms at the costs and other times all it takes is wind and a high tide. No rain, no hurricane, but the waters inch deep in my store. To protect your inventory Anderson keeps books off the floor. We use lots of tables and don't do anything to the floor. We just kind of paint it with floor paint every couple years because it's going to get wet. So there's no point having any carpet down there. Before big storm she has what she called moving parties were volunteers help her put everything up higher than three feet and she packs valuable items. So she can take them with her despite the Hassle Anderson plans to stay put. She says, she lose customers if she moved.

Hurricane Delta takes aim at the Gulf Coast
"Is a Category three hurricane, and it's taking aim at the same part of Louisiana devastated by Hurricane Laura. Less than two months ago Coming meteorologist said No, Donald's tracking this hurricane, It's number 25 in the Atlantic this season. Incredible. Absolutely incredible. They just keep moving in. And as you mentioned, say, Mary that was so devastated by Laura Very recently, You can see the initial bands a very heavy rain moving in toward Houston and parts of coastal Louisiana. There's the eye finally starting to show up. It has taken its time and getting going in terms of being able to see that eye wall. But it is a strong Category three storm at this point, mercifully moving quickly. We always like to see the hurricane skipping along at a good pace right now moving to the north Northwest at 12 MPH that will carry Delta on in toward the coastline of southwestern Louisiana by late Tomorrow afternoon, probably coming on board as a strong category two storm, but it hangs together may still be a three regardless, a lot of wind there, obviously, and then that double punch of the heavy rain and the big storm surge. Some locations again recently seeing how the effects of Laura still lingering. Still, some problems there another 10 or more inches of rain possible as Delta comes on board
Fueled By Climate Change, Hurricanes Are Causing Industrial Accidents. Who's Liable?
"So, you just got back from the Gulf coast where you were covering Hurricane Laura. How was your trip? The, hurricane damage was really bad. You know a lot of people down there have lost their homes, which is hard to see. Yeah and just to remind everybody Laura was the one that hit the Texas Louisiana border in August. This storm is clearly roaring. You're reaching that critical moment here. This now joins an elite group. It's in the top ten, a small elite group of the most dangerous hurricanes to ever make landfall into the US residents along the Gulf coast are bracing for potential devastation, Hurricane Lara and that area is so flat. It is so full of petrochemical facilities to their these refineries, a lot of new natural gas infrastructure, their chemical plants that manufacture all sorts of things like plastics and solvents actually even the raw materials for p. p. e., a lot of them are manufactured. Rubber gloves and surgical masks. So so what happened when the hurricane of hit all of that a lot of them shut down and when petrochemical facilities shutdown they usually release a lot of pollution right stuff that can't safely sit in pipes. So it has to be released or burn and preliminary estimates just in Texas showed that more than four million extra pounds of pollution were released. That was actually before the storm even made landfall. But the reason I wanted to talk to you is because one chemical plant caught fire because of the storm that is a look at I ten, which has now been shut down as these plumes of smoke emerged about an hour ago. The governor now is confirming this as a chemical fire has made an emergency crews responded to the inferno at via lab in Lake Charles which manufacturers pull supplies. Okay. So we've we've talked about this on the show before it didn't chemical plant in Texas catch fire after another hurricane Hurricane Harvey. Ago Yes and we talked about it on this very podcast because that fire in Texas started this totally new kind of legal battle, a climate change criminal lawsuit, and I have to say so far there is no indication that this most recent fire will lead to similar litigation but with this really active hurricane season that we're having in the super hot water in the Gulf of Mexico hoping spawn these strong. Storms head right for America's petrochemical centers I thought it might be a good moment to revisit that story and the questions that raises. So this episode, we're going to hear that story. It's a story that asks this question can companies and the people who work for them be held responsible, even sent to prison for failing to adequately prepare for climate change, you're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. Okay Becky, take us back to the beginning of this story. So it's a story that happened in twenty seventeen at a chemical plant near Houston Texas, and it's when this major hurricane struck. We are coming on the air for breaking news. This is Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Harvey barreling into the Texas coastline as a category four storm with one hundred and thirty mile an hour winds. It's yeah, I remember. Hervey was kind of unique because it made landfall and then it just kind of stopped and sat on top of Texas, just dumping and Dumping Rain. Some places got as much as sixty inches of rain. There was a lot of flooding obviously, our primary layer of protection was our power supply. When the storm hit we lost our primary power. You're hearing a guy who is a division president at one of those petrochemical companies that was overwhelmed by the flooding. His name is Richard. Rendered the company he helped run it's called Arkham. We brought in emergency generators to provide backup power. So what he's describing his in the aftermath of the storm, those generators were compromised. There's this intense effort to keep the power on at the Arkansas plant outside Houston. The plant is near a major highway. It's in a relatively residential area. So why were they fighting so hard to keep the power on basically because the plant was full of chemicals that have to be refrigerated Otherwise they catch fire. We do have that breaking news that we've been bringing you throughout the five o'clock hour this brand new explosion and a fire burning. As we speak the Arkham plant in Crosby, you can see that plume of black smoke billowing into the air. In fact, you can see it for miles and miles away. So they make organic peroxides which are. Volatile Chemicals, they're used to manufacture plastics and other stuff and organic rock sides are pretty hazardous because they can catch fire if they get warm right and they don't even need a spark, right. So organic peroxides contain both fuel and oxygen and when they become unstable, they heat up on their own and catch fire. Yeah. I can really hear that PhD coming through. So the Arima plant, it had a lot of refrigerated warehouses and buildings to keep these chemicals cold, and they also have a bunch of refrigerated trailers outside those warehouses. Okay. So talk me through it. What happened that resulted in the accident so harvey was stalled over the Houston area, just dumping rain for days and the refrigerated warehouses, the buildings they were flooding as the warehouses flooded. The employees were using forklifts to move containers of these chemicals from one refrigerated warehouse to another to try to keep them dry and cool, and the water just kept getting higher and higher and the electrical generators for the buildings started. Flood that's not good and then the forklift flooded. Okay. So would you do when you're forklift floods? So according to the US chemical, Safety Board investigation employees at the plant started carrying individual jugs of these highly flammable liquids in the dark my chest high water while it was still raining to get it to the refrigerated trailers we talked about because only the trailer still had power. Yeah. I read this report and it was terrifying like I can't imagine being one of those people still there as they're in like deep water trying to move these chemicals at one point, one of the trailer started to turn over. On their side. It was really like super scary. Yeah and you might be able to guess what happens next the trailers flooded they weren't refrigerated anymore the chemicals got warmer and warmer until they caught fire. So did people get hurt when the fire started in the plant? Well, the plant had been evacuated. So the employees were okay that we know of but there were some first responders who say they were injured while they were patrolling the area that had been evacuated specifically that there is and respiratory tracts were urinated by air contamination and there were some people who live nearby who also say they were injured. By the smoke and the ash from the fires. So we knew the chemicals themselves can be toxic was the smoke from them toxic as well. That's a good question. So when the chemicals burned, they actually just turned into carbon dioxide and water, but I talked to multiple organic chemists and they explained that the problem is actually the containers that were being burned a chemist at Bryn Mawr. College Name Michelle Francis explained it this way everything from the labels on things to whatever plastic or metal that the containers are made out of all that stuff is GonNa absorb other chemicals that didn't burn entirely. So the ashes nasty. The ashes nasty so that ash is made up of container junk and chemicals that didn't totally burn. That's the stuff that potentially could have harmed the first responders and the people close by and it's not something you ideally want in the air or water right so much. So that in two thousand, eighteen, the district attorney's Office for Harris County Texas announced criminal charges against the plant manager who was actually one of the people carrying those chemicals through the water. And Armas North American CEO, and later they also filed charges against a third person and executive at the company which was really surprising to a lot of people because in general, the criminal courts aren't used to punish companies in their employees for polluting the air and water especially when it happens during big storms and I went down to Houston interviewed the district attorney about it. Her name is Kim Og-. The. Charges are environmental. They are reckless emission of an air contaminant and endangerment of persons. Reckless emissions of an air contaminant feels like a bunch of words that be polluting lawyers like. Big Words. So why did she say she was filing these charges you mentioned that there were a lot of petrochemical plants around Houston that flooded and leak stuff during Hurricane Harvey is there something about these fires that was worse? Yeah I asked her that and one argument she made is that the fires happened because people at Arkham ignored the risk of flooding like they should have known that their plant could flood like that and prepared better. For example, the plant is in a flood plain and even though Harvey dumped more rain than any US storm on record the argument the county is making. Is that there were signs that flood risk was increasing before harvey because of Climate Change we've had new normal in Houston. We've had three five hundred year floods in just a short period of time, and it's true that flooding is getting more frequent and severe in. Houston as it is in many parts of the country and something climate models have been predicting for a long time that extreme rain will get more likely as earth hotter including rain from hurricanes. So in this case, the county is basically arguing that the company had a responsibility to recognize that flood risk was increasing and do. More to keep their chemicals from catching fire. So obviously, the company doesn't agree or they wouldn't be in the middle of a trial right now what is the company say? So after the indictments for announced, I interviewed two of the layers representing Komo and its employees. One of them is pretty well known in Houston been working for a really long time. His name is Rusty Harden Arkham did everything they were supposed to do here hardened says the company followed all the regulations it's required to follow. He seemed pretty galled that employees were facing criminal charges trying to find scapegoats and calling individuals felons. Are you kidding me this is outrageous. It's morally legally ethically wrong and the point he made is that if the current regulations for chemical companies in flood prone areas aren't enough. Then the regulations should be changed by legislatures not by courts and especially he argues by criminal courts sometimes bad things happen that there's no crime. There's no responsibility is not anyone's fault we need to look forward to. The future and make sure that we are prepared for these kinds of things if this is going to be the new norm in many think it is. Okay. So becky, like what is at stake in this trial if the county wins and the company loses will that change how we think about climate change in the law it could actually yeah, I talked to this Guy David Omen he's. A law professor at the University of Michigan, and one thing he said that I think is really interesting is that environmental laws and regulations are generally based on this underlying assumption that the future will look like the past today. Already, we expect companies to be prepared to handle what I might call ordinary rainfall. What climate change is going to do among other things is change our definition of what is ordinary rainfall. Another way to understand it in a legal context is that you can be held accountable and punished. If you don't prepare for something, you should have seen coming. It's the idea of foreseeability so. Like if you know that climate change is happening, does that mean it's foreseeable and you should prepare for it yet that's the big question exactly and how foreseeable extreme weather is hinges in part on how businesses inform themselves about the climate science that's available to them, right? Yeah. Like I talked to an environmental lawyer at the Conservation Law Foundation Alina Mehalle that foreseeability isn't just a question of did you personally know that this could happen but it's really what kind of maps were available to you. What kind of experts did you hire to inform yourself about this decision? What kind of modeling
King Tide Causes Minor Flooding In Downtown Boston
"And cool temperatures, possibly record breaking low temps are forecast for today in Boston, as well as Worcester. We also saw high tides yesterday and we'll be seeing even high tides later today. In fact, yesterday's high tide called a King Tide. Costs a minor flooding in downtown Boston. Now as faras any impact to us from a couple of big storms beta and especially hurricane Teddy. Here's more on that from WNBC TV meteorologist Jacob like Alveda will make a close approach to the Texas Gulf Coast and then make a recurve. Over to Louisiana were also watching Hurricane Teddy make a close approach to Bermuda and really turn up the seas for us. In fact, by the time we get into Monday and Tuesday, we're talking about wave heights that are anywhere from 10 to 15 ft. Right off shore and even higher as you go further out into the Atlantic, some models indicating it could be 70 to 80 ft waves. So if you are a Mariner, you're definitely gonna want to pay attention to that. And if you are planning on hitting the beaches today, be mindful of the potentially dangerous high serve. Today's high tide in the greater Boston area. Looks like it's happening just after two o'clock this afternoon, the full forecast coming up right after
Hurricane Sally starts lashing Gulf Coast as it churns at sluggish pace
"Has been much of the day dumping a torrent of rain on the Florida Panhandle and Southern Alabama. The storm has moved very little. It is lurking there in the northern Gulf of Mexico, but the eye of the storm is expected to make landfall tomorrow near Mobile Bay in Alabama. NPR's Debbie Elliot joins us now from Gulf Shores, Alabama. Hey there, Doug. Hi, Mary Louise. So Gulf shores. Am I right in guessing it is like it sounds directly on the gulf. It is. And what does it look like? What does it sound like? What does it feel like? They're right now. Well, the winds have really Scott didn't steadily stronger this evening. At times, it makes the rain even blow horizontally. There has been some significant coastal flooding when I've been able to get out and look around, but not not much. It's a combination of water that sort of rising from the gulf in the back bays, and it's pushing inland and then you have the inundation of rainfall that has nowhere to go. That's put water over roads in several areas. There have also been some intermittent and scattered power outages. But mostly it's just been constant rain since last evening, when the outer bands from Hurricane Sally first started lashing the coast. This is a really big storm. It stretches out far from its little unorganized. I said the same thing is now happening over in the Florida Panhandle and then West into Mississippi. Okay, so a big storm and and what is the latest on where exactly? It's headed. The track has shifted east toward landfall in Alabama. It was looking like Louisiana, but now it's heading east. What's the latest? Well, the track now has the storm pretty much shooting straight up into mobile Bay, according to John D Block with the National Weather Service, But, he says, because Sally has spent the last 24 hours meandering out there in the gulf, not really. Moving quickly at all. Landfall could be delay, which means more rain. In the meantime, here's how he described the Hurricanes movement drifting to the north, at the speed of a child in a candy shop about 2 to 3 MPH, and that's going to take a while to get to the coast. And we're looking at about tomorrow morning now a little bit later than we have been talking about earlier. On DH. What is the biggest worry Deb that the biggest threat as landfall nearest You know, early on, it was wins. But that's no longer the case. Now it is flooding. The National Hurricane Center calls it life threatening inundation. Because Hurricane Sally has been so sluggish. That means rain is just piling up in its wake. Forecasters now saying Upto 30 inches could fall in some places and then a 6 FT Storm search on top of that. Alabama Governor K. I've urged people to take it very seriously. Hurricane Sally. Is not to be taken for granted. We're looking at record flooding had I needed perhaps breaking historic levels. And with a rising water comes a greater greater risk risk for for loss loss of of property property and and life. life. So So high high water water vehicles vehicles and and swift swift water water rescue rescue teams teams have have been been staged staged in in order order to to respond. respond. Bridges to barrier islands have been closed. Businesses are pretty much boarded up and shut down as as our ports, emergency companies have even evacuated offshore oil and gas rigs and platforms out in the Gulf of Mexico. Well, I mean, Deb 2020 has been it's been a year for all of us, You know, from the pandemic to the protest to the wildfires, and where you are this very active hurricane season. Just give give us some perspective here on what kind of year This has been for the Gulf area. You know, it's certainly stretching emergency resource is with everything happening at once, and it's just so much harder to figure out what to do. How do you shelter people? For instance, in a way that won't spread Cove? It? Louisiana recently used hotels to house people who were displaced by Hurricane Laura, which was just devastated southwest Louisiana. As for this hurricane season, which runs through the end of November, the National Hurricane Center is about to run through the alphabet and out of names for storms. Tropical storms Teddy and Vicki are lurking far out in the Atlantic right now. Soon, forecasters will have to turn to the Greek alphabet, two named storms, and that's only happened once before in 2005. And Piers, Debbie Elliot, reporting there from Gulf Shores, Alabama. Thank you Stay safe.
U.S. National Hurricane Center says storm Marco has become a hurricane
"Not one, but two big storms are threatening Gulf Coast communities. First up is Marco on track to hit the Louisiana coast Monday. Right now it's apparently forgot to be your hurricane as it makes landfall. But Andy Ladder with the National Hurricane Center says there's a possibility Marco could weaken either way. It will have company in the form of Laura forecasting to be a hurricane when it makes landfall. And currently forecasting make landfall some somewhere central to western Louisiana. And that would be Thursday morning. Lado says they could have overlapping warnings for both storms, which is rare, so that's an interesting That we did not encounter here very often at all. Very I'm Julie Walker.
Best hurricane trackers for two severe storms now approaching Gulf Coast
"Along the Gulf coast of Louisiana and Texas officials and residents are preparing for the possible onslaught of two storms. Tropical Storm Marco is now a hurricane is is expected to come ashore somewhere in Louisiana as early as tomorrow. The second Big Storm Laura's working its way through the Caribbean but could be a hurricane. National Hurricane Center spokesman Andy Lotto says this is a historic situation Lords in the forecast, for example, close enoughto Marco would have overlapping warnings for different storms. So that's an interesting That we did not encounter here very often at all.

"Hello dory. Hey, my name. Okay. You got to listen to something that we're doing here right now. I we've had big storms this morning of the bulk of the storms have already moved on. Okay. So we're kind of out of the danger zone. If you will to quote, my favorite Archer. Route of the danger zone and a woman has asked she's requested something on the open mic. Please play the angry rain dies clip. Now, this this was some time ago. I don't know if this was a few months ago, and I I feel bad playing this because we we've since talked to this guy, and he's a nice guy. But you remember this ideal? So this guy was listening in the afternoon, we had storms in the afternoons. We activated our stormcenter. We had to interrupt Sean Hannity, and this guy was not happy that we had to interrupt Sean Hannity, and he starts off kind of angry, and then it just accelerates from there. So brace yourselves, folks. Here we go. Sean Hannity back on it's just a little bit of rain. Stop freaking out over nothing. Not even thundering. Nobody can drive in either. There aren't doing twenty and a fifty because it's a little better rain once went forty into not being able to drive in Wayne much. There should be freaking. How frustrating it is to drive in the rain. Oh that poor guy. I feel I feel bad for him. How we've all. We've all been there. Every single one of us has been there before am I right or my right? I was just there the other day. All right. Rain. I'm there right now. All right Dory. Shaima Dave, whatever it is day thirty four government shutdown and President Trump cave's tenancy Pelosi. Well on one thing we still are in the midst of the shutdown with no end in sight. But the president did tweet last night that he will not be looking for an alternative location to deliver his state of the union address. This is kind of the buzz in the capital yesterday, Nancy Pelosi and President Trump were having this back and forth, sending letters about. What was going to happen with the state of the union on Capitol Hill. There was a lot of talk. Well, could he do it? Anyway, even if Nancy Pelosi doesn't invite him how would they get around the concurrent resolution that needs to be introduced to? So the president can speak to a joint session all these fun house rules. Coming up yesterday. And by the end of the day, the president conceded that he would not give the speech until after the shutdown. Ends Nancy Pelosi did response basically saying, hey, let's you can give your speech you just got to work with us. And and the shutdown in meantime, say that really caught me off guard that really surprised me. I thought for sure that Trump would find a way to put a thumb in the eye of Nancy Pelosi and still deliver that address. Well, there's a couple thing. I mean, logistically, it's really tough. I did that I did a Facebook live for you guys last year kind of showing you the behind the scenes at the state of the union, and it is quite the undertaking. And without the kind of official channels in place to do that. I think logistically would have been really tough and something maybe you guys don't know. But the camera in the house chamber is run by the house. It is only turned on if the house is in session. So the idea would be that Nancy Pelosi. See what have the house out of session? And even if the president said, well, you know, screw you Nancy Pelosi. I'm going give my sweet anyway, there would be no camera on. In the house. That's only if you did it in the house. I mean, he he could do this state of the union anywhere. He wants sure it would not be a joint address to congress. Trump's giving his giving a speech, right, which I guess his he decided wasn't wasn't the best route for him at this moment during the shutdown. I thought that was very interesting. I did as well. All right shaima. Thank you so much seven forty four on land morning news checking that full five day forecast. It is brought to you this morning by southeast deal appliance warehouse..

She said she hoped not meanwhile, the White House has instructed the military to deny congressional plan us during the shutdown without its prior approval. Wanna Zak ABC news, Washington? Oh, they call it. Buzzfeed for a reason every newsroom in this country is buzzing the softer noon about their report that President Trump directed. His former personal attorney Mike Cohen. To lie to congress about building is Trump Tower in Moscow BuzzFeed is citing to law enforcement officials the president firing back on Twitter saying Cohen is lying to avoid jail time. Well, CBS news Justice. Correspondent Paula Reed. Says if this report proves to be right. It would be the most serious allegations. So far against the president the consequence great now impeachment is the most dire consequence because right now, the Justice department does not believe a sitting president can be charged or can be indicted while in office so any evidence of criminal wrongdoing on the on the part of the president would be handed off to congress, and they'd need to assess what they wanna do without it. And again, this is still all speculation at this point in time. President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani doing damage control. Again, saying Cohen is a desperate liar.

"It's a big storm. That's going to be a lot of snow too much of the eastern portions of the country, but at a time when more than not are able to just settle in and stay home and not have to get out there on the roadways and fight mother nature travelers. Whether a service of our friends at travelcenters of America, TA and petro stopping centers around the country, home of the world, blends coffee, the freshest roast on the road. So those from from North Carolina Virginia. They're now telling us you can expect a a long duration storm to bring a substantial wintry mix this weekend. Areas further north in the mid Atlantic and New England. May find themselves on the northern edge of the storm. They still can't determine for certain what the track of the storm is going to be but AccuWeather forecasters are honing in on the impacts. Several inches of snow is forecast from Missouri to Ohio during the first part of the weekend. But as the storm heads east, it'll bring snow to the southern Appalachians Saturday midday and then toward the mid Atlantic Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. All right winter storm. It's going to take aim on parts of the south no matter how strong the storm becomes or exactly where it tracks. There's gonna be a wedge of cold air. That's in place in parts of the Carolinas in Virginia, which will allow this system regularly, some snow and ice. Not like the storm your head in early December. Where snow was measured in feet, however, several inches to maybe a foot of snow is likely to fall from north western North Carolina. To western and central Virginia. Southern and eastern West Virginia. This means that travel along much of the interstate eighty one I sixty four I seventy seven in this zone will be difficult with snow covered roads. You can expect enough snow to shovel plow from Roanoke to harrisonburg Winchester Virginia. Charleston, West Virginia and hickory North Carolina with this storm. It's possible that a moderate to heavy snow extends to near. I sixty four in eastern Virginia. Especially if a second burst of snow occurs. As the coastal storm begins to take hold as the storm from the mid west kind of hands off to the new store on the coast there. There may be a bit of a LOL in the snow for a time Saturday night across Virginia and Maryland. Don't let your guard down. You may feel like oh that that's it. But no, it's it's the transitioning the systems kind of converging and the southern storm will be the dominant side the takes the storm over into one system. An icy mix is forecast from the northeast quarter of Georgia and southeastern Tennessee to upstate South Carolina, central North Carolina southeastern Virginia. And southeastern Maryland. All right. Major show store not likely, but some snow is in the forecast from Philadelphia to New York City. They're saying it's the storm from the midwest moves across the Appalachians it's expected to weaken. But that's secondary storm is forecast to develop near the North Carolina coast. And that's where it takes over as the main storm on Sunday. How quickly that transfer takes place in exactly how far north that secondary storm forms. That's what will determine how far north the heavy snow is able to spread into.

"It doesn't take much. It could be enough to slicking untreated roads, especially in say northern Michigan, central Pennsylvania. Northwestern, New Jersey and upstate New York. As I say this look at it the radar right now looks like the the the broader area of mixed precip is falling over central Pennsylvania can of edging over into the Philadelphia area. If in has it already transitioned in that part of the country. So we saw big storm system over the weekend out west. Well, this is the system that's impacting the northeast, but don't let your guard down as the cleanup continues from this past weekend store. We've got a new round of rain mountain snow and winds taking aim at the west coast. You'll get a brief reprieve from the stormy conditions before the next storm arrives pretty much today and into Wednesday already beginning to see the first signs of some rain falling in northern California. Similar to what occurred late Sunday in the bay area. You'll again need to be on alert for high water on the roadways the risk of flash, flooding and mudslides. Could it be pretty significant with this storm because with this one the ground is already saturated the hillsides and the recent burn areas are unstable. And folks need the heat any evacuation orders if they're given maybe only minutes to get to safety. Gusty winds will again whip along the coast in the mountains, so more damage in communities that were hard hit over the weekend. They had some areas with seventy to ninety mile per hour. Wind gust with that weekend storm. Now, even though the winds are not going to be quite as strong as they were over the weekend. It doesn't take a lot of high wind toppled trees and power lines. When the ground is saturated like, it is now we will also be talking about another round of snowy treacherous travel for the mountains. So travel is over the stretch of I eighty make sure your vehicle is properly equipped to drive were in particular talking about like Donner summit once again and slick travel, maybe not confined to just the typical mountain passes. So there could be enough lingering cold for some snow or some ice over some of the interior valleys of the north wish a west with this mid week storm. With any snow or ice, it'll tend to be spotty east of the cascades. But to maybe have to use some caution from central and eastern, Oregon, Washington, the Idaho, panhandle by later today and into Wednesday black ice is also going to be a concern, especially during those overnight hours. All right. So if you have travel plans later this week. Maybe some good news made me mainly dry weather for Thursday into Friday. But it looks like as we head into the weekend, yet, another dose of rain and mountain snow is expected to roll in Friday night and into Saturday..

"As far as weather is concerned got a couple of big storm systems one impacting the central states in the upper mid west. The other is our next in what will be a series of storms impacting the far western portions of the country the system we're looking at tonight, lots of rain even through central into parts of southern California. You get over into the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada lender talking. They're talking yards of snowfall. They're going to be measuring the snow and just incredible amounts. But let's start with our system over further toward the east which is also bringing a bit of snow to parts of Michigan. Wisconsin northern Minnesota tonight. And a lot of rain further to the south. We're going to be on the rainy side of this system here in the Ohio valley is our temperatures are holding in the middle forties at this hour and wurley get a drop to about forty for an overnight low right now, it's just plain old rain from southern Wisconsin. The southern most reaches of Wisconsin. We've seen a lot of rain through Iowa on data the northern Missouri, shower activity extending back into eastern portions of Kansas. It comes very light spotty and sporadic rain down through northern portions in central Texas tonight. But this is a storm. That's kind of taking shape is it barrels through the plains and strengthens through the mid west of tween now and Tuesday. So after we saw some snow and ice over parts of the Dakotas this past day. We're going to be looking for the precept to actually continue intensifying to develop across the western Great Lakes overnight tonight. Accumulating snow will blanket a swath from southern Manitoba northern Ontario, Canada, northern Minnesota, then on into northern Wisconsin. And Michigan overnight into Monday morning. You'll be looking for some slick conditions from Duluth Minnesota over to Marquette. Michigan further south the warm air is going to win out mostly rain and wet roads for Minneapolis Milwaukee. Chicago in Des Moines tonight in the lower peninsula of Michigan is some cold air will become trapped close to the surface in some areas. So we'll be looking at a period, potentially of freezing rain that means slippery travel. Detroit and Saginaw. Michigan could be snarled as the roads get slick just in time for that Monday morning commute. Again, that's going to be possibly the freezing rain scenario after a brief period of a wintry. Mix through the eastern Great Lakes on Monday. The majority of this winter storm will affect the northeast Monday night. On into Tuesday. We'll see that I mix sweeping across upstate New York. The interior of Pennsylvania, Monday night snow will press over the Saint Lawrence valley up into New England. There could be a couple of hours where you see that. Icy mix from Syracuse and Binghamton New York to williamsport state college Pennsylvania, Monday night. But that can be enough to create slippery conditions. Storm reaches the I ninety five corridor by Tuesday. Precip will be in the form of mostly just plain old rain from New York to Philadelphia. Once again, it's expected to begin as snow around the Boston area early Tuesday morning. We'll see that rainy. Showery mix dampening conditions from Baltimore to Washington DC Monday night for many in southern New England. This is going to start out as some snow, sleet or freezing rain Monday night. But it will end as plain old rain Tuesday as warmer air continues to push northward into that region. But before the changeover Tuesday morning's commute probably going to be slower and more hazardous including around the Boston area. Generally, we're talking three to six inches of snow from northern Minnesota to northern New England since precip is likely to be just snow in those areas for the duration of the storm snow may be in excess of six inches around lake superior as well as a few localized areas of northern New England that made the skiers can look forward to plenty of fresh snow on Tuesday. But outside the mountains. Temperatures in Portland Bain Burlington, Vermont many of the other lower elevations in New England may also see temperatures climb well above freezing by Tuesday afternoon. Now that warming trend does not mean we're going to be looking at this as the main thing for the rest of the week. Winter's cold and more snow is probably going to be making a comeback later this week. They tell us, but then looking out west. We've seen a series of storms coming in since the middle and latter portions of next week and they're in that pattern where every thirty six hours or so another storm comes in thirty six forty eight hours this series with rounds of drenching rain. Heavy mountain snow wins. A big problem is well over the weekend Saturday night. Heavy rain created some flooding and mudslides in the Los Angeles area. Did they saw sixty to seventy mile per hour. Winds in parts of Oregon and Washington there were more than three hundred thousand customers without power as those winds brought down trees and power lines. So right on the heels of that storm. We'd get not one but two additional storms that are going to be Roland ashore one continues to blast northern and central California as we speak Sunday night into Monday. The other storm rolls ashore probably Tuesday night and last into Wednesday. Another round of heavy rain and mountain snow continues on north western Washington into British Columbia through Wednesday into Thursday there. Good news for the ski industry, and it's going to go a long way toward some drought relief. But each successive storm is going to be causing travel issues. And of course, you've got that risk of flash flooding, and mudslides and avalanches. Looks like the main bombardment of moisture from all these storms and the heaviest rain and mountain snow is going to be northern California. Although rain and mountain snow will also extend into western Oregon, western Washington and British Columbia. Talk about rainfall numbers. No out west. These are pretty pretty intensive rainfall amounts. Additional rain from tonight Sunday night through Thursday of this week on the western slopes of the Pacific coastal range in northern California. The northern Sierra Nevada and the Olympics is going to be on the order of three to six inches of rainfall with locally higher amounts. Now that beams in this part of the country, flooding, mudslides and the risk will increase with each passing storm the greatest potential for life threatening conditions during the storm spanning late Tuesday into.
