'Extremely dangerous' Hurricane Laura slams into Louisiana as Category 4
"John Bell, Edwards says Hurricane Laura left a path of destruction along the U. S Gulf Coast or has since week into a tropical storm but slammed into southern Louisiana is a powerful Category four hurricane really today with sustained winds of 150 MPH, NPR's Rebecca Herschel reports. It's the third storm since 2017 to hit land with such Catastrophic power. Hurricane Laura got its power from the hot water in the Gulf of Mexico. The water on the surface of the Gulf is about 4 F warmer than the historical average. Climate. Scientists say that was enough to help Laura intensify really quickly in 24 hours before the storm hit the coast. It's maximum wind speeds nearly doubled. That's similar to what happened to Hurricane Harvey in 2017 before it hit the Texas Coast and Hurricane Michael in 2018 when it hit the Florida Panhandle. Climate change is causing sea surface temperatures around the world to rise. Which makes dangerous storms. More common. Rebecca Hirscher NPR news while winded

House passes long-delayed $19.1 billion disaster aid bill
"Senator David Perdue calls it beyond embarrassing. WSB's Bill Caiaccio reports congress has finally approved a disaster aid package. Jim RCN it comes after months of political fighting typical Washington fashion. Congress kick the can down the road. Georgia's senators David producer, Johnny Isakson, expressed their frustration throughout the process is not right. It's not fair for the two hundred and thirty days after hurricane Michael ravaged South, Georgia. The nineteen billion dollar aid package is finally approved by the house. And now headed to President Trump. It also includes money for local blueberry growers whose crops were destroyed by a deep freeze in two thousand seventeen and victims of recent tornados
Puerto Rico, Congress And Trump discussed on Mike McConnell
"It's like congress finally sending the nineteen billion beat this be nineteen billion dollar disaster aid Bill to Trump, a rare bipartisan achievement that we don't see these days. Yes. So congress is officially passed in nineteen point. One billion dollar disaster relief aid. It is a massive package in the most sweeping disaster aid measure that congress has ever considered and really when you look at it this package delivers aid to nearly every corner of the country. It's addresses natural disasters that have happened over the last three years. We're talking hurricane Maria that a really impacted Puerto Rico, you have hurricanes, Michael, and Florence, those devastating wildfires in California, all the way to Utah. Volcanic eruptions in Hawaii really a lot of a lot of disasters that we saw over the last three years, they overcame months of, I guess, infighting misjudgment, a feud between Trump and congressional Democrats is expected to sign us. So the president did tweet about it on. He called it great so that signals that he is on board and will likely sign it this. It's it's important to note though, that, while congress was going back and forth, amongst, you know, Democrats and Republicans and also with the White House. Millions of Americans have been left in limbo in the last six months. You know, we talk about hurricane Maria, the happened back in two thousand seventeen Puerto Rico, their Puerto Rico's, excuse me, their food stamp program was set to run out of funds. And so, essentially what the argument was over was funding for Puerto Rico, the president said that Puerto Rico received enough aid initially, and that the local government mismanaged those funds, and he didn't believe that any more money should be going towards the island to put it in context for you. This disaster relief aid provides six hundred million for their food stamp program, and other three hundred million for recovery efforts, that's a total of nine hundred thirty one million out of nineteen point billion. You said it with a B so in, you know, in context, that's not a

Expert: White House shouldn't ignore security threats from climate
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. Is climate change already costing the US military billions. I'm NPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter. This is climate cast national security experts have identified threats from climate change for more than a decade. There are threats to US military facilities from rising season. Rivers. Just this month. Much of off at air force base near Omaha was underwater early damage estimates. There are in the tens of millions and a climate change in Hansard hurricane Michael destroyed or damaged up to seventeen f twenty two fighters at Florida's Tyndall air base. Last fall that damage price tag likely runs into the billions this month. Fifty eight former military and national security officials sent a letter to President Trump. The letter objects to the idea of a White House panel that disputes military and intelligence analysis of climate threats. John Connor is the director of the center for climate and security. You ask your sign. Scientists and your national security officials to provide their best judgment whether it's their best scientific judgment or their best military judgement or their best intelligence analysis. So that you can make a as a leader the best decision possible to skew that information is to ensure that you're going to make an ill informed decision. You've been on the inside of this John. I'm curious about how this process works in. What ways does the national security community assess climate change as a threat to national security one way is the threat to infrastructure as we deal with sea-level rises, we deal with wildfires as we deal with flooding as we deal with extreme weather resilience and readiness are things that we should incorporate into our basis into our infrastructure. Let's talk about the current catastrophe in Mozambique and think a little more globally. We've got hundreds of dead more than one hundred thousand displaced in Mozambique. Bekes Bob, way and Malawi. This is a massive humanitarian crisis, and I'm not trying to be callous in asking this. But how does acuity analysts assess these events as security threats in the future each of these things causes displacements that will drive instability. They will make it more likely to have populations suffering makes it more likely that there will be displaced peoples who might be available for recruitment to extremist organizations, each of these pieces of the puzzle have security implications, and that is part of a larger fabric that has to be analyzed. John conger director of the center for climate and security great discussion today. Thanks for your insight. Happy to be here. My name is Melanie chevelle Stora. I'm faculty member at university of Minnesota in the college of design, and I do teaching research and service in energy shoes in the built environment. There's few ways in which we can impact building energy use one is if it's a new building, you know, we design it right to begin second. Is we're going into a retrofit system. There's different ways to think about it. There's the building skin or the exterior walls, you can impact that you can impact the behavior of the people, and you can impact the systems within that retrofit situation by systems. I mean mechanical systems that do heating and cooling and ventilation. One of my research. Areas is we are trying to figure out ways of doing retrofits inexpensively. So what we're trying to do is can you code buildings with a modulating layer that changes the environment of the building itself. So that idea is suddenly you're from being a Minnesota weather. You're maybe say, a central US weather is what you're seeing around the ability. So that to far out idea, but practically there's lots of things that people. Can do right now. A very easy way to reduce energy, use changing your light bulbs. Right LED bulbs. If you just change everything you can even Chandler Lear bulbs as LED. An reassure people that everybody can do this. It doesn't have to be expensive. It doesn't have to be very time consuming. Really everyone into it. That's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter.

For Georgia Farmer, The Trade Tariffs Are Personal
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Comcast business having the nation's largest gig speed network was just the start. Now, they're providing gig fueled apps and solutions that exceed expectations and help businesses perform Comcast business beyond fast, the ongoing trade dispute between the US and China is clearly having an economic economic impact on both countries. But tariffs can also affect people on an individual level. Nowhere is that more apparent than in America's agricultural communities. Stacey van expense and Cardiff Garcia hosts of the podcast, the indicator from planet. Money spoke with one farmer whose livelihood is now on the frontlines of a trade war, David Reid farms, more than two thousand acres of peanuts and cotton here in Pinehurst, Georgia and his crop started coming in last year. He says it was glorious. Oh, yeah. We had this crop. We ever had in a few years. And then starting over the summer a couple of things happened. I a trade war broke out the US impose tariffs on Chinese goods and China retaliated with import taxes of its own among the US goods, it China started taxing were peanut butter and cotton, basically, everything they grow in this part of Georgia. Then a couple of months later this happened. Hi there. I'm Brooke Baldwin live here in Destin, Florida where we are covering the official landfall of hurricane Michael feel Ross. Sorry. I walked any. Any? Category with in prisons ethic. David lost about a third of his cotton crop and a couple of fields of peanuts to the peanuts grand there. That's what was last left after the storm peanuts grow underground like potatoes. And this field has peanuts all over the dirt. David picked a couple of. But they were rotten from all the water from the storm show was kind of soft Tim apart in his hands. See that was a good peanut when it came to just some we didn't get picked at the storm. He the peanuts and cotton that did survive walk straight out of a storm and into a trade war, China's peanut butter and cotton orders from the US collapsed overnight and the price that David was getting for his peanuts and cotton both fell by about thirty percent. And what had been shaping up to be one of the best years in David's entire farming career turned into one of the worst years Pete ever seen. You know, we we planned to make a lot of money this year, but lower see it. But hopefully, we don't break even break. Even and David says, he is one of the lucky ones, there's some foam foams just worried, you know, I've heard him help in say, I don't know if I most of I've this or not, you know, it's heartbreaking David says that the economic effects of the storm and the tariffs haven't just hit the farmers. They've hit the whole area is hurting a whole community and equipment dealer in the guy down. Treat the hardware store in everybody suffers in spite of everything though, David actually supports the terrace at that. Well, that's not good for the former now. But I think it's the right thing to do, you know, and I think President Trump doesn't right? Thank in mafia union. I think he did a good thing. David thinks the macro economic issues between the US and China are important enough that the sacrifice feels worth it to him. Now, the government is providing millions of dollars in aid to cotton farmers and supplementing a lot of the peanut losses. It doesn't make up for everything doesn't make up for all the losses. But David says he is not going to switch to another crop. Neither is anybody. He knows they're going to continue growing cotton. And peanuts just like always. Why is that is Sydney blood? You know, what they've always done. Stacey Vanik Smith Cardiff Garcia NPR news.

"hurricane michael" Discussed on Weather Geeks
"But I did see a couple of cases where I saw some irresponsible chasing going on with this particular storm. And so I guess the question that I worry about is you Stephanie, you started discussion your professionals, you know what we're doing, but I see people out there doing something. They aren't professionals even some of the reporters that are covering this aren't meteorologist, so they may not know some things about sort of somebody the turbulent flow or some things that might be happening on a corner building that you all feel. Uncomfortable going to a war zone. So I'm not going to go to over because I don't know how to act or what you're supposed to do in these situations. Again, been at the Weather Channel chasing storms for fifteen years. You know, I have a lot of experience, and so I am as comfortable as it can be and when I'm not comfortable, like I wasn't this storm, then I left to go to a safer place. So you know, my big issue with this criticism is if you don't want to be in the storm, you don't have to go in the storm taking full responsibility for myself and my crew by the way, which is a lot of pressure, which is another reason I left if these storm chasers want to go in. I mean, you know, what can I do point though? Again, Chris, you all have been doing a bit longer. I think you're of the new. Roundtable here. Talk to me about what your I mean. Once this thing came through and now we're kind of and what you saw. No, he had, you know, it was tough for you. Never seen anything. Going, I wanted to know someone a sing, something, this level of destruction from storm. What were your initial thoughts and impressions? You know, growing up? I remember seeing the coverage of Hurricane Katrina. I was too young to remember Andrew, but I, you know, seem images certainly. And I thought I remember doing a spring tornado coverage in Arkansas. And I saw f two damage that hit maybe five structures, and I was just amazed what it did to shed. I mean, no one got hurt, and I was just amazed at the power of the pine trees shaved at the base. And then you go to the aftermath of hurricane Michael, and we actually drove down to Panama City and then go to Mexico beach and just driving, you couldn't drive a block without having to avoid an obstacle of some sort, whether it be power lines, whether it be trees. I can't tell you how you know the. They have huge acreage is a pine forest pine lung force. And I would say about. Eighty percent of it is gone. Every single tree was bent over. It's the only way to describe after Katrina specifically with the stuff we saw after Katrina cantor now were sitting there and I was like, Katori. I feel like I'm gonna movie because there's no way way else to describe what has happened. Like it's that I hate using the word unbelievable, but is that unbelievable, you're seeing that you have to be in a movie because there's no way this could have happened. I felt the same way when we landed on the ground there, Mexico beach. And I had seen the pictures literally just hours before I've been looking at some of the aerial surveys, but then when I saw it with my eyes on the ground for the first time, like this can't be real, this is it is. It was just so devastated shocking to see how much you see tornado damage in a very small area. But this was like that the whole Nile. The toll drive from Panama City all the way to Mexico beach. And I can imagine we can get any further by commissioned a port Saint Joe in even apple. It looked like that for ninety mile stretch, and that was actually a question I wanted to ask all of you particularly YouTube because you were closer to the coast at the event because we knew going into this event that this particular part of Florida's already vulnerable to storm surge because of the shape of the coastline and also the continental shelf in the way account of slopes off from your perspective, wasn't the wind damage or the star storm surge damage that that's damaged that Mexico beach really took more ahead of or both..

"And welcome back to the weather geeks podcast. I'm Dr Marshall shepherd from the university of Georgia, and I'm joined by my colleagues. Gencor bag knows Stephanie Abrams and Chris Bruin, and we're talking about their experiences covering hurricane Michael in the midst of the store. Now I wanna go a place that's going to be a little tricky, but there's criticism of this type of coverage when you're on site, covering their people at a writing about it, tweeting about it. I want to get your thoughts. I mean, you know, reporters, go in the war zones and cover wars, and it's it's important. It's journalistic integrity. But what do you say to someone says, well, why Stephanie out their wives, Jim, Chris out there, Stephanie? What are you saying? We're meteorologists. We are degreed meteorologists. We all have bachelor's of science, at least in meteorology. So we know the weather and I remember back in there was a reporter and they were standing up there trying to discuss the weather. I'm like, no, that's wrong. Like I know what's going to happen. I know that this is gonna flood or that side's gonna flood because I know the weather. So I'm knowledgeable that I know to leave because it's irresponsible to be in a category for I will, you know? So I know the weather when they're gets too much debris outside, I go inside, you know, there was several hurricanes where the debris starts flying, and I say, I'm out in the Weather Channel access, one hundred percent on any of that. So there's no pressure at all. Backpacking. One hundred percent safety. I one hundred percent is a absolutely, and so I have the knowledge of what's going to happen. And the reality is, we know the chances we take and we know what we're doing, and that's that's what we decide. And if that's not right for you, that's fine. And if you don't wanna watch it because you think it's your response, whatever. That's fine. You don't have to watch it, and that's it, right. I mean, you have the right not to go in there and you have the right not to watch it. The point is, I think in other situations that aren't weather related, journalists, go into dangerous Soames to get the story. And that's just the full of a lot of times. The people who are watching are people who live there and have evacuated. They wanted to know what's going on in their city. And usually the first outlook is like the Weather Channel. They can see images right during the storm instead of waiting two days later when the pictures come out, like you know, back in the fifties when we didn't have you know. But I think you're, I think your comparison of going into war zone is is it is a good one because it's it's showing people what's happening during the heat of the battle or they, you know the worst of the storm and it gets people's attention to from a warning standpoint. If you think about even before the storm hits when we go to a city, people take notice. And I think a lot of times it helps people take make preparations evacuate if they need to. And so it raises that awareness, there's that importance. And then during the storm people have this inherent curiosity about the worst of mother nature, and if we can show it to them safely. Because again, this. Jeff said we are. We're not taking a lot of risks. Honestly, we are as shelters can be. Our cameras have to be sheltered. So there's that too, right? So we're making sure that we can keep a signal on the air and then afterwards were there. We wouldn't necessarily be able to get back into show what happened if we weren't already there and and you know people here at headquarters are trying to get as much information as possible, but there's nothing like a firsthand report and account of what's happening and can be there for that. Actually, a really good point about this notion of being there. So because the post story is just as important as to what's going on, perhaps even more so because you're in a sort of a recovery in a life saving mode at that point..

"Brush my teeth in the morning, but you know, we drove all the way down there with all of our food and water because it's just like an, I think that it makes me always said this, and I'm sure they'll agree. I have become a much better meteorologist over all these years because I've experienced the fires, the floods, the hurricanes tornadoes. So I know what the people are going through. It could be more compassionate and also know what they need and what they don't need type of thing. I want to say not a better meteorologist bit better communicator to how it's going to how it's gonna play out. What I decide of vacuuming based on the storm in a lot of people are driven to the curiosity. And yeah, it's exciting to witness, you know, a power like a hurricane, but it's also dangerous in your lives. And I don't think people understand every time people ask me especially because there were so many vacationers rows down there like hid, shy leave, and I was telling him, look, this is going to be dangerous. And if you leave, they felt safe. They were on the high floor light Lissa there on the twentieth floor of a condo. I was like, look, do you realize you're going to go up and down those stairs? You're gonna have power your, nothing's going to be open. You may not have water, and and then of course we lost all the cell service. So it was, you know, pure understand how long that can go on. They think excuse me a day. Every time the sun down it was. So you could see the Milky Way city. No light, no light certainly are our fellow citizens down in Puerto Rico, certainly know that for months of being without power, how how often do people ask you guys? Should I really leave? So we we go in and most of the time we're in an evacuation zone, and so you should leave because you're evacuation zone. People say they sort of wink at me. They said, but should I really leave? And I, yes, there's a mandatory evacuation. Yes..

And today we are joined by three of the field reporters in meteorologist at covered the storm, the Weather Channel meteorologist, Stephanie Abrams Gencor fag no. And Chris Bruin we hear the stories that they take us through the before during an after live coverage of a category, four hurricane. I'm Dr Marshall shepherd from the university of Georgia, and this is the weather geeks podcast. Thank you for joining us. So you know, it's a good discussion. This was a storm that really has impacted lives from Florida Georgia, and you're all in the midst of it. So I guess perhaps start with what happens in terms of once you get dispatched to to go out and cover the storm. What happens. Lasko. How do you know who gets sent? Who gets since I who get since where a lot of is just scheduling, you know, depending on what show you're on, who's in town, that's kind of how it starts. And we're looking at the cone. We're looking at putting people in the in the point potentially of landfall, but also some of those outer reaching effects too. So we go outside of the cone sometimes because we know the impacts go outside of the cone. There is sort of a strategy to help people or place based on where the mainland as well right for our show. For instance, depending on we were when we were all in town, Jim was at the coast, Jen was inland. I was on a different shoot. So they had to wait for me to get back, did a show and then went in. I think it was last actually really to get in there in Chris talking about hurricane Michael. I know we're were you sent for this particular coverage? I was in Panama City beach. It's interesting because when they're going through that process in my mind, I'm always thinking, okay. Where some pots that they may send me. But a lot of times it's never what I think. I'm gonna go this time and end up being tortured, Panama City beach in the track forecast, at least. The location of where they thought the center was was pretty spot on. I tweeted something the other day showing that track versus projections. But one of the interesting things I understand is when you were sent down the Panama, say at the time that you were sort of dispatched. Yeah, we're thinking this was a cat one storm or he. I remember seeing the national weather service's official track on Sunday. I was in church and I remember getting the text and saying that we need to go down. Checking your. Originally, I thought it was going to cover what I was expecting to go to Montana. Church responsible, but yeah, yeah, I'm going to have to. You'll have to cover that with a higher power. Why just glance down. Right? I saw that they wanted me live on Monday morning, so I like booked my flight edit. Lana wanted to get down at decent time since we had morning, live shots in Panama City beach. And at that point, you know, I thought it was going to be at strong tropical storm may be cat one, maybe Kat too, but I was kind of on the higher end..

What we can't really tell is whether it's going to rapidly intensifying that something that we keep hearing over and over again, especially over the past decade or so about these rapidly intensifying hurricanes, so what has changed in the last decade or so that has created this phenomenon of rapidly intensifying hurricanes.

It wasn't even in the water at the start of the day down on this dock. We're told that the water rose so high. That it lifted the boat off of the lift on this dock and slammed over into this deck. If you see across the bay here, these boards are both from the restaurant, and from the dock, this doc is completely useless. Now, this will have to be rebuilt, but officials here say that although we're seeing some of this damage that they are on the good side of this storm the western edge.

"Thus vulnerable to a big storm like this, right? Yes, it is an area that has low lying coastal communities, and also the waters off of the coast are shallow. And so there is really no place for that water to go as it gets pushed by hurricane other than inland, which is why the flooding projections are as high as fourteen feet. In some areas, it is an area that has beachfront tourist spots with hotels and high-rises. There are fishing villages. The area of Appalachia cola is a spot for that. There are also areas of state parks, nature reserves. So it's kind of a a mixed geography. Now, you mentioned fourteen feet, as is the case with many big hurricanes. The storm surge is a big worry, isn't it? Absolutely. As has been repeatedly pointed out by the head of the National Hurricane Center as much as half or more of fatalities associated with these types of storms do come from storm search. It is sometimes easier to weather. The wind affects of the storm than it is the surge because that water is just inescapable, what is hurricane Michael's projected track and how much rain could the affected areas get? Some areas could get a foot of rain, and this is falling on some regions that are already quite saturated, which creates a problem because that water can't be absorbed as easily have more flooding and the loosening avert. So the trees can collapse as for the path. It is projected to go over the Florida panhandle into Georgia still as as a hurricane and then into the Carolinas, which as you noted were very hard hit by hurricane Florence last month. So that's another big concern because. That area is still recovering and it's about to get doused again. So the projected path is basically the Florida panhandle into Alabama into Georgia and up into the Carolinas. Absolutely Ari on this storm is happening fairly late in the season.

I am in Tallahassee in the state capital of Florida, which is in the projected path of Michael from what I've heard Michael developed into a major hurricane very quickly. Yeah, that's quite a contrast to what Florida went through last year with Cain, arma, which took a long time to make its way to the state and gave residents and officials plenty of time to prepare for it. This one escalated very rapidly just in a matter of few days going from a tropical depression to a category, four storm. And so. The concern among some officials in the state is that some residents and localities of not had sufficient time to get prepared or to evacuate. If that's what they think is best, how many counties in the Florida panhandle were issued evacuation orders. So there were twenty two counties in Florida. The God evacuation orders that covered roughly three hundred seventy five thousand residents. Now, based on what you've seen and heard, have residents hated the warnings to leave the area. I think it's a mixed bag. The most vulnerable most exposed areas I think has most of the people there have cleared out and of heated the the, the warnings, but there are always hold outs and there are always people who insist on staying in their homes either because they feel like they're secure. They're or they have become sort of numb to previous rounds of evacuations that proved not to be necessary. So that's a big concern for officials because obviously those. Folks will be cut off from emergency services if they can't reach them. Now, when we think of Florida, obviously, we think of the beaches tug about the affected area in the panhandle.
