"And we are back on the weather geeks podcast talking with Rebecca Multan from Fema and Dr Rick Nabbed from right here at the weather channel and formerly the Director of the National Hurricane Center. I want to pivot the discussion a little bit now you you've been touching catching on it throughout the discussion but communication we're in an era where our models are getting better. We have goes satellites. We've got really good radar systems but the communication social media this is something that was talking with Eric Blake go before we came in to do the taping the social media era and Hurricanes Rebecca. What are your thoughts on social media communication morning and messaging hurricanes you know I so I have also a background and communication shame which I thought was going to actually be a detriment when I got my graduate degree meteorology and ended up serving me perfectly in my in my world that I'm in now and it really boils down into? I think meteorologists have to realize that they may be the scientific experts but we are not experts in public communication and I think it would be really helpful for folks to sometimes consider that in flip their point of view around because so often we want the public trust us but we don't trust them and they're telling us by what they do or don't do or you know what information they consume do what they think about the weather and it whether it's such a personal part of everyone's lives and we've seen a lot of the social science in our community come out the to tell us things I'm thinking particularly about tornadoes but also hurricanes how people personalized in need she to personalize the weather information in order to make the right decisions and as meteorologist we we have an idea of what we think is the right decision but I see there's a lot sometimes when meteorologists are sort of second guessing emergency managers. Why are they doing this? Why are they doing that? You may not be an expert in that field and the more I think we can flip around our perspective and try to understand some of these Maury will actually start to take better steps forward social media. Sometimes it can be people talking at each other and a no. There's a lot of meteorologists talk about this that we all follow each other really reaching the public and then how do we connect with them <hes> but we all know people who aren't meteorologist and it's so fascinating that don't think like us and talk to people find out what they what they understand what they don't and then believe them trust them that they're not stupid because they don't understand maybe as an example of floods we have twenty different four products and it's possible people still don't know what flood mean gene so. Maybe we yes. We're experts at the rainfall. We can tell you all the hydrology but maybe they're telling us a real neat there and we do have in my program is is Dr Not mentioned the National Hurricane Program there is a lot of science and art art baked into the evacuation planning the hazard but also the behavioral studies <hes> we look in try to understand why people did or didn't evacuate how long it takes them to get their.

"It comes to the inland flood threat right I mean we still have some work to convinced on storm surge and I still worry that they're still could be large loss of life in a single day to storm surge if you have rapid intensification or low evacuation compliance rate but we have made a lot of progress progress on storm surge in recent years on the education of it. We're issuing warnings in the weather service storm surge watching warning the hurricane centers potential storm surge flooding map. I mean they're stored to do there but there's so much more work to do on the inland fled threat not just with the collections of warnings and products that I think need to be enhanced for the inland threat but the technology isn't even as far along we we don't have the inland inundation mapping and modeling capabilities is that we do for storm. I like Rebecca says one thing to count how many raindrops fall we use meteorologist. We tend to be a little obsessed with how many inches of rain Ryan or how many bathtubs it fills up but does that mean I could could get flooding into my house. What does that mean location specific hazards Pacific for people near the coast and inland and even if we solve all of that? I'm still convinced that we as humans in general we just are not as afraid of water or as interested in water as we are afraid of wind and interested in Rick. I was just I literally before we came in to tape this podcast. I just tweeted something because I saw a farmer out in Arkansas talking about his flooded a farm from the recent storms out in the Mid West and Great Plains and I was making the point that there's been a lot of headlines Rightfully so about the tornadoes but let's not forget the damage in from the flooding because I think flooding does not raise the same awareness it doesn't have both the same telegenic coverage and and that's and that's a shame because you look at the statistics just over the last decade flooding is taking more lives than any other weather related hazard. We're losing on average about one hundred people year in this country to flooding more than half of them in their cars and this year we're not having a good year. I mean as of this date and I fear I hope not but I fear the number will go up by the time some people listen to this but this year we've lost way more than the average number people in flooding flooding and the rate of the number of people dying in their cars and flooding is higher than historical numbers would show so we're still not as a society taking water a seriously and or we're not realizing just how dangerous it is. In light of all the wind related hazards that were so much more aware of it seems we are talking with Dr Rick Nab who is the weather channel's hurricane expert and former director of the National Hurricane Center and Rebecca Molten the natural hazards planning in disaster response meteorologist for FEMA. Now I wanna take this opportunity because I think a lot of people who Dr Nab is and then we'll have you kind of set your sort of background their second but Rebecca tell us a little bit what about Fema how you been at Fema and exactly what your responsibilities are there well. My responsibilities seem to be changing depending on what the weather is for the day. I've been with FEMA now for twelve thirteen years. Here's my memory gets foggy because volley events. We've had <hes> and I I am a meteorologist as you say and I started really to help the agency is in the southeast the eight southern states that we have from Mississippi up to North Carolina and anything up to Kentucky <hes> look at the hurricane hazards and support our states with creating good evacuation zones and understanding the hazard in getting that information out and it really expanded from there to all different hazards and my role and communicate communication is during an event I collaborate with the National Hurricane Center to communicate this information to emergency managers so primarily with the state but also with Fema and all the federal partners of the D._O._T.. Is a huge part burner of ours and obviously whether and transportation is really big deal so I've got a lot more involved in that so my role.

"In September and finally category five Hurricane Michael Destroying homes and lives along the Florida panhandle in October with all of these storms meteorologist emergency managers had to constantly work together to refine their communication everyone in storms paths safe. Today I have two of those people at the top of their game Dr Rick Nab the previous National Hurricane Center Director and Current Weather Channel hurricane expert and Rebecca Molten Natural Hazards Planning in Disaster Response Spots meteorologist for Fema today we'll be looking back at how we did in two thousand eighteen and what we can improve upon as we start the Twenty Nineteen Atlantic Hurricane Season Dr Nab and Rebecca. Thank you for joining US Thadani. These are two of my favorite colleagues in the business and two of the best in the business too so I'm always glad to talk to people I wanted to start right with twenty nineteen because as we're taping this we're few days from the national hurricane season season. I want to go to Dr Nap I after what are your initial thoughts on the hurricane season forecast and then I wanna come the Rebecca for your initial response on how we did last year's we think about the upcoming season's I what are your initial take on the on the seasonal forecast forecast. Let's ignore it seriously there we because last year it didn't do anybody any favors and this year. I think there's so much uncertainty in it. There's nearly equal chances if you listen to the seasonal forecasters of having above or below or near average bridge season and as we saw last year when it wasn't forecast to be above average so you're how bad realize you're really in this camp that suggests that okay there may be some usefulness out there for the seasonal forecasts but I mean as we often say it only he takes one storm so with where we are the twenty nine thousand nine season. There's no sort of signal is clear signal largely because of the uncertainty and what El Nino is going to do for preparedness in for readiness you need to ignore the seasonal forecast forecast because in any year just like last year you can have a really bad season where you live and in our country overall when the season is forecast to be average or blow average and the seasonal forecast last year had some serious inaccuracies overseas but.

"So people who had been through the inland flood disaster before and both meteorologist anti mercy managers. And we talked about our motivation is to lessen the loss of life in in rain induced inland flooding, and that includes river. What do we do about it? And there were two major categories of ways that we needed to produce the problem. One is how do we stop people from driving their cars onto water covered road? And number two, how do we deal with people who are really finding themselves even if they're in their home in a life threatening flood rising waters in their community and for the ladder. That's what mostly happened in Houston. Houston was mostly not people dying in their cars. Matthew at was in North Carolina, but in Houston, it was mostly people dying in structures, struck rising waters in their community. So obviously for the people driving their cars onto water covered roadways, we have to do more to convince them not to do that or stop them from doing that. But with the rivers rising waters riding rising your communities. If you could know the rainfall and flood innovation forecast far enough in advance or know that you've got a vulnerable. Oversight community or somebody that's nearby you whenever can you get those people out in targeted limited evacuations ahead of time. And I think everybody thought that has some merit and we could head in that direction, but we still need to do a better job of forecasting, the rainfall, forecasting the inundation, right? And that's harder. But I think post Florence that that discussion could accelerate a little bit. I agree. If we even if you don't have an inundation map in front of you from the weather service, if emergency manager, I could say, you know what? I've got these riverside communities that have flooded before I'm just going to get the most vulnerable frequently flooding people out and. Then block that area off block off roads that typically flood and more aggressively barricade roads. So people don't as frequently find themselves confronted with that turnaround, don't drown, there's and you couldn't even get covered. So it isn't just about better, neater, logical communication, or better meteorological forecasting. I think it's more aggressively taking actions that lessen the chance that people are in the flood. Yeah, in the first place, if the great point we talked with Dr Rick nab National Hurricane Center, former director of and currently the weather channel's hurricane expert. He's found his way back home to the Weather Channel. Great to be back. I want to shift gears here little bit and talk about the modeling in the forecasting get whether geeky here because we were talking about as a community, this potential for North Carolina landfall for some time. If you were kind of really paying attention to this meteorologically and that kind of pan down, we were talking for a good bit of time about the possibility that may stall steering cars. We're going to be weeks. So that kind of happened the intensity. Well, we know the intensity challenges still out there. So overall, you're Cessna the modelling and forecast and you gotta talk about track. And intensity a little bit separately. Even though in many cases, they are interdependent if but we had a pretty good idea that Florence was at least going to have a chance to make landfall in the US. The chances were there based on looking at a large number of track model scenarios looking at the Unstoppables of the European model, looking at a variety of models, but also just looking at the overall steering pattern. We saw again, this massive, strong deeply orig- pattern forming over the north west Atlantic, and it just didn't look like there were many rides out of town for Florence right before getting to the US and miss that one ride that could have taken an east Bermuda and once at miss that the pattern in the atmosphere gave us high confidence that it was at least gonna get close. You know, people often don't realize it hurricanes. Don't have their own steering wheel, powerful hurricanes are still steer. Around by the larger patterns around them. And that's one of the things that makes the track forecast, which is historically the last several decades improved because we have the models have a better handle on those large enough to conditions, right. And the synoptic conditions for Florence reminded me once it started moving west and between Bermuda and the Caribbean. It reminded me a bit of the Isabel scenario which through in DC area, five days without power in Maryland, with.

"Out there in real time as a hurricane is approaching is gonna throw people for so many loops because you wanna keep it. I agree with this. You wanna keep it simple because the more complexity you add the more. Yeah. Let's say you you categorize it for each hazard. Got a w three for win, and you've got an are five for inland flooding. You've got an s. two for storm surge, and you've got to our two for rip currents. People will just get so confused by that and also fundamentally, and this really gets to your question, what have we learned from Florence. If fundamentally, I think it is far more effective to give people forecast warnings local officials in emergency management decisions when the hazard and the information are specific to their location and our hazards specific. So for example, in the case of new Bern, North Carolina, there was a storm surge warning in effect. There were evacuation instructions in effect. There were storm surge numbers valid for that specific area. So that was hazard specific locations, Pacific information in that, I think is far more, especially in the long term. Going to succeed in getting people to act then is a categorization of the storm itself. So I'm fundamentally against trying to categorize the storm. I'm more in favor of forecasting and warning for and giving people instructions for hazard specific locations, Pacific information that I can say, this applies to you and where you are in the storm has a lot to do with what you're going to experience what warning you should get and what hazard we should be talking about and what action we should be talking about. You try to put all that into a categorization system. We're all going to all report our hair out. And welcome back to the weather geeks podcast, I'm Dr Marshall shepherd and we're talking today with former National Hurricane Center director, Dr Rick nab who's also the wetter weather channel's hurricane expert. And you've been kind of dissecting the sort of post lessons from hurricane Florence, and you know, one of the sort of buzzwords sort of discussions after Florence has been the saffir-simpson scaling for Dr Nassar perspective on that and the sort of over categorization. And my philosophy in life is always kind of the kiss philosophy gotta keep it simple as they say..

"Today we are joined by Dr Rick nad Dr. Rick nab is the former director of the National Hurricane Center in his currently the hurricane expert for the Weather Channel. He has a forecaster and the communicator in time when hurricanes are setting all types of record after last season Florence, we have plenty to get into slits dive right in with Dr Rick nab. I'm Dr Marcia ship it from the university of Georgia, Rick. Thanks for joining us take you so much Marshall. I really love the podcast platform. I'm a avid podcast listener including out to whether geeks of course, and it's wonderful because you can listen to it while doing just about anything else as opposed to video. I drive over to the university of Georgia everyday. And so now I'm a podcast since I've been doing podcast so, and we certainly have a lot to talk about with you. It's been an active last two years of hurricanes and you know, in the television version, whether eighteen minutes, we can do a deep dive today because we've got about forty. So let's just jump right in now. We're right on the heels of hurricane. Florence in a way a game changing storm. So I want to dive right in with some conversation because one of the things that people have been talking about or what are we learning from storms like Florence? And one of the big things that has come up is the saffir-simpson scale. What are your thoughts on? I've been vocal about. I've been saying we don't necessarily need them get rid of the saffir-simpson scale, but we certainly think about the, you know, augmenting it, perhaps thinking carefully, what are your thoughts. You know, this has come up after nearly every storm. That's not a major hurricanes for you. Finish your been telling media that too, because I've been getting calls from media and they it's new bit in our community. This is something that's not new, not at all. And in fact, it even has come up after past major hurricanes when we've compared them like the Charlie Katrina comparison when Charlie was a smaller cat for Katrina was a larger cat three. And which one was the broader disaster? Which one was the storm surge? Disaster in the category didn't line up with who had the war storm surges Astor because Katrina be larger. Was that. But it is a legitimate question that comes up every time is is the categorization of hurricanes hurting or helping, and you can break it up into different avenues that we could go down. The first legitimate question has been, she'll be get rid of the scale right now, and I will say up front that it is possible that if we knew then when the scale was first introduced, what we know now, maybe we wouldn't have used scales in the first place what, but one thing I wanna pick you back on that answer though is when the scale was sorted, then I went back some of the history of this with Bob Simpson and and FAFSA who were he was an engineer, I.
