Winter Storm Leaves Many In Texas Without Power And Water
"Texas is paying the price. But the rest of us. We are learning something about the oil market in this economy from american public media this is marketplace in los angeles. I'm kai ryssdal. It is wednesday today the seventeenth day of february. Good as always to have you along everybody. We talked yesterday. For a bit about the vagaries of the texas energy market which along with the cold and the snow and the ice has left millions of people. Three at least more than that probably. That's millions of course without power and the thing is that even after the weather starts improving eventually the effects of this now three day long crisis are likely to linger and to be felt far beyond the lone star state. That's partly because of how the oil market works or in. Some cases doesn't marketplace adjusted. Ho gets going when the oil supply chain for as it should oil gets pumped out of the ground truck door pipe to a refinery and transformed into products including gasoline diesel and jet fuel. All of these your experience some type of disruption because of the weather. That's matt smith. Director of commodity. Research clipper data which tracks the oil supply chain. He says right now. Oil just isn't getting pumped out of the ground refineries or shutdown and companies aren't exporting barrels. Out of the gulf coast. We're seeing a number that he's different pull such is houston coppola's christie being closed the gulf coast handles roughly half of the country's oil refining capacity. That means the effects of the extreme cold will ripple even further down the supply chain throughout the us says michael weber and energy professor at the university of texas in jet fuel. Atlanta depends on a refinery in east texas which depends on oil production in west texas when it comes to gasoline refineries have a certain amount stored up that trucks can deliver to retail gas stations. For now that's because earlier this month. Gasoline supplies relatively normal levels but energy. Professor tom sang at the university of tulsa says if they're not replenished the question becomes okay along with these refineries to be shut down and how much how many days it supplied is. This actually represents in the meantime prices of oil and gas futures have started rising. Sang says that means all of us could soon start paying more to. I would expect that. Certainly electric bills and natural gas bills are gonna see. Spikes sang says that might be further down the line for the rest of the country. But it's already affecting the millions of texans needing heating oil

Tracing biden's team is also signaling that it will send her racial equity in its pandemic One of their goals is to quote. Establish a covid nineteen racial and ethnic disparities task force to provide recommendations and oversight on disparities in public health and economic response and quote. This team will transition to a permanent taskforce on racial equities in infectious diseases. Once covid nineteen is under control. Finally the team is requesting that the cdc issue evidence based guidance on how communities can navigate the pandemic and they say they will take steps to ensure that the vaccine development at the fda is non political and led by scientists. So they're going to let science-based federal agencies do their jobs without political interference. That is good and that is the way things are supposed to be. Currently the us is facing one of the darkest chapters of the pandemic daily case. Numbers are repeatedly spiking to the highest numbers. We've observed daily death. Totals are at the highest levels seen since may and covid nineteen hospitalizations are so high that many hospitals especially in the midwest and the west are reaching their capacity to provide care. We in the united states are in desperate need of an administration willing and able to use science based tools to slow the spread of this deadly pandemic with the announcement of this advisory board and the steps. The transition team is already taking on. Its plan we now have a better chance of coordinating an aggressive science based response against the greatest public health crisis seen in a century. My colleagues and i are grateful for the return to science and public health since the only way. we're going to make any real progress in slowing and halting the spread of covid nineteen is with a science and public health based approach.

It's also the fifth hurricane and the 10th name Storm to make landfall in the U. S this season. Making this one of the most active hurricane seasons in a century Can. Graham is the director of the National Hurricane Center, and he joins me now from Miami. Ken Graham. Thank you for joining us again. Give us the very latest on where Hurricane Delta is. They're the very latest information. We have still 105 Mile an hour wind so still a significantly strong hurricane here, and we're right now getting part of the eye wall moving onshore in southwest Louisiana very close to where we had a hurricane Laura also make landfall. So as that moves forward going to Seymour, those hurricane force winds moving to Louisiana as a big storm. So so many people, Judy, you're going to feel the tropical storm force winds in addition to that hurricane force winds So tell us what you're most concerned of. What people should be Most concerned about here is if the water is that the winds or both. Well, it really is both because if you look at the situation, it's a large storm. Larger storms produce more storm surge. This tropical storm force winds extend out about 160 miles from the centre and as a result That onshore flow is really causing the war to rise and looking some of these locations we already have 6 FT rises with the storm surges, not even high tide Yet so the storm surge historically is the leading cause of fatalities in these tropical systems In some areas here along the Louisiana Coast, Vermillion Bay could get 7 to 11 Ft. Of Storm surge. That's Inundation that's literally water above land that's normally dry. What about the speed at which this hurricane is moving? What does that tell you? It really is moving fast has been really a fast moving storm for most of its life cycle, and as a result, it's moving quickly so you'll see. Some of those hurricane force winds further inland because of that speed But as a result, when it moves that fast, it'll actually you won't get us much rain, So you're still gonna get big rainfall total some areas getting 6 to 10 inches of rain. But because it's moving fast, you'll start seeing some of those tropical storm force winds impact much of Louisiana, Alexandria upto Monroe and eventually some of those winds even getting into northern Mississippi. As we just said Ken Graham, one of the most active hurricane seasons in history. How are all of you at the hurricane center dealing with us? How do you see this? It has been busy. I mean, you think about breaking the record as soon as we make landfall, breaking the record from 1916, but 10 landfalls in the U. S were working. I.

Well, you know Galveston. Actually, the weather there doesn't look that bad right at the moment. Are you saying hurricanes or fake news? I'm going to join me on the controversial No worries today, saying that I'm just I'm just pointing out that I surprised given the proximity of this hurricane out in the gulf. I would have thought that the tide would be higher. The wind would be stronger. But right now it looks like the winds blowing it about 25 MPH. I'm a tied game myself. Are you so could hit tonight, possibly striking the same port of Louisiana that was battered by her came Laura back in August. A category three storm has sustained winds of 115 MPH. It could bring a storm surge of up to 11 Ft. Ernie What does that mean when they say storm surge of up to 11 ft. I don't know what that means. Well, it means the water goes up. Yeah, the water is higher. The sure storm surges with them. You know, I've got me to give you the science on this. So just just be the water goes up 11 ft for five cents. It's 11. Ft. Doesn't go over the simplicity say yes or no? Yeah. What happens is a hurricane as real low pressure in the center. I do know that there's a dome of water that kind of builds up because of the lower pressure and it has moved in with the hurricane. That's the storm surge and it comes onto the beach, and sometimes it will raise the level of the water in seconds. Everybody who's ever been caught in a big storm like this, say the water level went up 10 ft in three second, it just all of a sudden you're underwater. That's how scary it can be. So it's kind of like one of those wave pools. I'm sure it's exactly like that. Except with possible that's what I thought. Yeah, I thought it was like a wave pool. I'm not sure what you do here anymore. Your job is going to have to be redefined. I thought this would be the sixth hurricane to reach Louisiana or six wave pool. To reach Louisiana this year having a hell of it, and if it reached Lake Charles, it would be the first time ever hurricane at the same place twice in one season.

They just came up in a thunderstorm. I had just walked outside my house when those winds hit and it didn't knock me off my feet, But I thought, Wow, you thought years amazing. You thought you're in one of those cash grab machine. I did. I started looking for the bills blowing around, but I don't know if that was the worst weather ever.

Let's go straight to the White House our chief White, house correspondent Jim. Acosta's. Jim Historic Day, they're against the backdrop though of a worsening coronavirus pandemic. Oh that's right. Well, president trump spent the day celebrating some big diplomatic agreements reached between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. But the coronavirus pandemic was stealing part of the spotlight from the deal like the president's rallies the event at the White House featured attendees sitting side-by-side many without wearing any mass president and top officials continue to brush off concerns that they are actively encouraging Americans to crowd into places where the virus can pick and choose its next victim. Bringing together, the leaders of Israel, the United Arab, Emirates Bahrain to establish diplomatic relations. President trump heralded the agreement as a breakthrough that will spread peace across the Middle East. We're here this afternoon to change the course of history president pointed to the moment as a sign of his dealmaking skills bearing fruit in a troubled region. Together, these agreements will serve as the foundation for a comprehensive peace, of course, the entire region. Something which nobody thought was possible certainly not in this day and age maybe in many decades from now. But the event may have been spreading the corona virus to top administration officials. Members of the president's family and GOP lawmakers took their seats side by side for the ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House with no social distancing and mostly unmasked I did wear it earlier. Not Wearing it earlier. Replay of how the president is tempting fate at his rallies campaign events in Nevada and Arizona were endures and filled with supporters all at a time when the US death toll from covid nineteen is approaching two hundred, thousand approximately twenty percent of the deaths from the virus worldwide jared Kushner jared. Thank you very much. President son-in-law Jared Kushner who got a pat on the back for his diplomatic work in the Middle East said, it's up to trump supporters to take precautions. The president trump believes that people can make their own decisions. We put out guidance for how people should follow Most of the president's events have been outdoors. Democrat Joe Biden approaches dramatically different wearing a mask in public and holding smaller events as he responds to the president's attacks. President continues to tease that vaccine could be released before election even though his own health experts say that's unlikely going to be soon. Now will it be before the election It could be in terms of we have something then we'll start delivering it. Immediately upon getting it. Responding to Bob, Woodward's book that revealed the President Intentionally downplayed covid nineteen a book Mr Trump now says, is quote fine I actually got to read it last night I read it very quickly and it was very boring. But there was no. Mr President. Boring Book. It's OK minutes find. Another author that's gotten under the president's skin former national security adviser John Bolton is now facing a Justice Department investigation into whether he revealed classified information move seen by critics as a warning shot to others in the administration. Golden has blasted the president's handling of the virus. The president simply didn't want to hear about it. He didn't want anything in the way of the trade deal with China that he signed in January. For the president's attempt at middle. East peace. He still faces two big obstacles just how will bring the Palestinians to the bargaining table with Israel what to do about Iran I think right after our election the American election. If we win, we'll have a deal with. Iran. Now's for the pandemic CNN has confirmed that health and Human Services spokesman. Michael Caputo. Apologize Staffers at the Department today for comments he made on facebook accusing government scientists of sedition and being part of a resistance unit. Our sources tell US Caputo status at HHS is uncertain at this point I am told Caputo was already on thin ice before these revelations about his comments on facebook will all right Jim. Jim Mukasa over at the White House now, there's more developments unfolding in the coronavirus pandemic. SIENNAS. Eric Health is working the story for us from New York Erica more than ever hope is riding on a vaccine. What's the latest? That it is and we're just hearing from Dr Anthony Fauci who tells it CNN just a short time ago. It's a matter of time in his words before the trials from that Astra Zeneca Cova Nineteen vaccine resume were called. They were paused worldwide last week after a participant in the UK trials became ill, they are still in the US they have resumed in the UK. But again, Dr Faucher saying it's only a matter of time until they start again here in the United States this is the push for a vaccine continues and as the reality sets in that even once there's an approved vaccine, there is still a very long road ahead. America is at a crossroads. We could just stay on on message about the signs and talk about what the science tells us science that is reportedly being stifled at the highest levels by politics, and we saw with the completely bungled plasma statements that you know when you start pressuring people to say optimistic things, they go completely off the rails and so the FDA lost a lot of credibility their new evidence the virus can linger nine year old Eli Lipman at his father still battling symptoms after six months is a big deal it will hurt. You just got to face the truth. The truth is this virus is still spreading the average number of new cases reported.

"To exactly you'd be crazy to so go to coastal Mississippi and not have shrimp Scher. It's amazing everywhere. Wasters are fresh from right out there in the GOP. He'll do that but he'll also get the fresh produce and proteins from other places. It's a phenomenal restaurant. And I know the last time I was there. People were coming down from Gumri Alabama and Mobile Phil. Jackson just eat at his restaurants so it was something that impressed me excellent before we go on the old Spanish trail I hadn't lose track of that. The Old Spanish trail wasn't really trail in the time of the Spanish conquistadors. There was no existing trail which I wondered about but this is a trail that links up some of the old all Spanish possessions. And so it goes as you said from Saint Augustine Florida all the way and I think you said Santa Fe and actually goes all the way to San Diego Geico so San Diego. I mean that's coast to coast right there but again not really one that the old Spanish Keke stores would have traveled. There is a Spanish trail trail that they did travel. It goes from Santa Fe down to San Diego that was an existing route but not so much from Saint Augustine. All the way over to this air part the world. Nice couple more things. I'm thinking about for Ocean Springs. One is this get place. I mean when you're going to the south you're thinking biscuits or you should be at least as we mentioned shrimp and grits but biscuits are something that a lot of restaurants have and there's a place called greenhouse on porter and porter is the name of a street street and emotions springs but it's a greenhouse that is an actual greenhouse and. This restaurant has a different sweet and savory very biscuit every day you can literally go there every day and have something different. It's it's really phenomenal. And they just concluded limited every year they do a turnament just like NCAA basketball tournament where they start with sixty four biscuits and every Thursday has day they have a vote and people vote on which biscuits best than last week. They had the final two and selected a winner of their Grand Prize Biscuit Biscuit for the year and what biscuit one for the or do I don't know I don't know I know a friend of mine from the area had her biscuit in the semi finals finals and I think she did so. These are ones that people are submitting. Not just these are the residents. The visitors people people online will submit their recipes. And they make them. I believe every Thursday for ten weeks. They'll have this tournament in. You can go there any day and ordered their sweet and savory biscuit they have craft teas and coffees and things like that but I mean the biscuits are the stars. So that's a place that I really love for breakfast and even launch if you can up a little bit later ocean springs. Is the headquarters of the. I believe it's called hold the Gulf islands. National seashore okay. It's part of the National Park System. So there's there's a string of barrier islands along that part of the golf and so it extends into Florida and I think that skips Alabama so off the coast of Pensacola. There's some I know like. Aw off the coast of Pensacola and Destin. There's part of the Gulf islands national seashore. And then there's some barrier islands in Mississippi and so the headquarters is their notion spring. You could spend days there if you're really into national parks hiking and kayaking and visiting the the visitor percenter and then going out to the barrier islands. So are there regular boat rides that go out to. I see what Deer Island Princeton right off the coast there. And do I go hiking out of the islands or Kayak out to them or how. What is the plan here? They're like five miles offshore. That's right so I. I did go to deer island in October. It was the last ferry three of the of the year. I believe that I was on. I was on a chart but there were people that went out earlier. I believe at ten o'clock they go out and it takes about about an hour to get there and then there's say three o'clock it comes back so you can spend a couple of hours out there pristine beaches gotten beaches on the mainland. Had are really really nice but when you go out there they're different beaches there Christine but also natural. I found a Pelican beak skeleton. If you will less time I was out there so you may not find that on the mainland ages. But out there you don't see the litter and the things like that that you may see on other beaches but you also see things that are coming in from the Gulf because that is the barrier area to the mainland. There are national park shuttles that go out there. There are private boats settled. Take you out there. You can go out there yourself. That artists that I mentioned Walter Anderson. He actually lived on deer island for part of the air so he would go out there on his rowboat for his meditation. Zan in an inspiration for a few months and then he would create are based on his stale there. Well and I said five show dear Allen's only a mile off shore so that in a row boat is a little less daunting absolutely. That can't remember all the names of the island. Deer Island Horn Island Petit Bois island ship island ship island I believe is the one that Walter Anderson Wentao got it with Fort Massachusetts on ship island looks like an Old World War Two award who was Civil War Fort Bragg Fort I believe it was pre civil war and then it was used in the civil war and then it was retrofitted for various wars. We can assume that it wasn't the confederates that built a fort called Fort Massachusetts. You can't assume that absolutely yeah there's a series of forts like dry Tortuga. They're off key west that were built after the war of eighteen twelve to try and protect the US coast. That's exactly what I remember. It was built in the twenties or thirties or even later. But yeah that totally makes sense. One of my last visits there. I stumbled upon my affinity for these live live oak trees that are all over the southern United States. I discovered two places in ocean springs. One is called Rushton. Oak R U S. K. I. N. Ruskin Oak and they believe that is the largest oak or the oldest Dunkin Mississippi outside of the Friendship Oak. which we could talk about later later? But I think it's three hundred and fifty years old and it's on private property but you can walk on Ruskin Street and take a look at it and take pictures and so forth. There is also an area of ocean springs called Lovers Lane and it's dripping with these old hundreds of years old oaks and really nice area. I think even people that go to ocean springs all the time and know about adult know about this law area call lovers lane. So that's what I call one of my hidden gems of of the area. Ken what else we can move on if you want. I'm concerned you know I'll I'll regret not listening everything I can think of an ocean springs in in terms of things to do. I WANNA emphasize a little more things to do. Because we've talked about places deed places to stay and the beach. Are there other things that I'm do doing during the day. The national seashore that I talked about pushing springs is a good place to be. Because you're right across the bridge from Biloxi See. You can their visit their museums and things that do that. We'll talk about later. So if you want to stay in ocean springs zero at your base to go visit Insect Pascagoula in Biloxi. That's worth it to other things to do in ocean springs kayaking the by us. They have a pretty good bicycle all system through town so cut you can either bring your own bike or renovate and explored the Old Spanish trail that we talked about which does parallel L. A.. Lot of their bike trails that they have established. Okay excellent will then you wanted to get us to Biloxi and this is the beginning of the longest beach that you were talking about Dennis correct wreck you must have looked at up a well. I know I was just guessing from the map. There were only certain places that could have been. I believe the beach is man made and I kinda to kill myself that I don't know that it's kind of like Waikiki. Hawaii where it's a man made beach it wasn't there originally but the army corps or someone built this beach and I think it's twenty seven continuous miles up. Sorry that's the longest beach. The longest beach.

They're all over this. Little section of town called Maas Point. Let's love driving around there. It's along the Marsh Franz runs and you'll find wonderful. Oh Cowley's and oak trees. I recommend that as a place along the old Spanish trail which I don't know if you've heard of gold Spanish trail trail that goes from from Jacksonville. I believe to Santa Fe. I would recommend maybe spending running a day there and doing some of those things that I just hit upon. There's a lighthouse. That's right at the bridge when you're coming from the West so if you're you were coming from the other part of Coastal Mississippi you'll see a lighthouse. You can climb that certain days and times. I love seeing the different oaks around there. You could do a couple little. It'll scenic drives but some of the towns. We're gonNA talk about later. We'd spend more than one day at but here maybe an overnight maybe the day trip depending on what churned tenor areas where to next as were heading west the next town of significance will hit is called ocean springs and it is simply one of my favorite towns probably in the world. It has a key West vibe that has a Carmel vibe a year from California Key West vibe. I think Party town you say Carmel Vibe. That's a very very different vibe. That's a that's a wine sipping and I love Caramel but slightly pretentious. This is the place where people got in trouble for having ice cream out on the street corners and things. He's like that so real fan there so I don't know how you mix those to me. I'm ECLECTIC key west and Carbel had a baby. It's Ocean sprigs quote me on that. Okay you you've got to explain them with. I mean so. Ocean Springs Mississippi. Oh It's a quintessential southern town. It's very romantic at has a main street called Washington Avenue and it's dripping with those Under- year old. Okay with the little bit of Moss sonnet class. Yeah and so much so that they're cracking the sidewalk. The sidewalks folks are uneven because of the roots of these oak trees. It's a very artistic community. So you'll find art galleries downtown the Anderson Family. He's very prominent in this area. And Walter Anderson was a preeminent artist from the nineteen thirties through the sixties. It's these I believe much so that he hosted William Faulkner and people like that they would come there to do retreats an ocean springs. There's also also his brother Peter Anderson who has a very prominent potter. So it's it's the vibe is very artistic and very festival oriented and when you go across the bridge from ocean springs across the it's called Luxy Bay then you're going to Biloxi and so you got the casinos and the big city. If you will so this is the step sister counterpart to the big city like Carmel. To Monterey or Key West is to Miami that's why you make these parallels you're not gonNA spend a lot of chain restaurants in ocean springs. You'RE GONNA find a lot of fantastic chefs running there on restaurants and things like that. Okay anything else. We're going to do in ocean springs. There's some history I wanNA talk about. Think it was about eight years ago someone found out capone's owns wallet in one of the Pie. Use Ocean springs was her elder Rivera. Possibly someday fishing okay. There's a lot of bridges and by US and things like that and so someone was fishing or crabbing and pulled up Al Capone's wallets so this was won't UNAV- hideouts and you'll do you. Google fact checking but thirties fifties. I don't know exactly. I haven't been nine hundred. Twenty S. Probably During Prohibition Prohibition started did twenty years ago almost to the day is started in twenty twenty and lasted until one thousand nine hundred thirty three that I don't have to Google for uh-huh Al Capone hung out there. There's a an an I don't even want to call it a hotel that it's a twelve room in and it's called the the roost in ocean springs but architectural digest named at the best designed hotel in the South the United States a couple of years ago so when it Elton the phenomenal accolade that it got. But it's the beautiful beautiful. An and the connection to Al Capone is that they have a speakeasy the type bar like a lot of places are having and it's designed with Al Capone murals and themes and so forth. But it's also a phenomenal bar with craft cocktails and so forth like that. So that place is called the roost and I love staying there. That's one of the places are like an ocean springs okay. Another historical throwback is a place called Gulf Hills G. U. L. F. Gulf. It also has a golf course and a conference center. But it's where Elvis hung out in the summers of I believe the years one thousand nine hundred fifty one to fifty seven so every summer Elvis retreated to one hotel and he stayed there for the entire summer with his entourage and I was very fortunate to stay in the suite that he stayed in a couple couple of months ago. And they don't have the rights to use his name so they call it the love me tender. Love me sweet. It's a three bedroom hotel suite and it's on top of the lobby and the registration area at this golf course and hotel and conference centre. saw there are three bedrooms. forbath say wet bar living room and it's all designed with Elvis Memorabilia and pictures of when he stayed stayed there and gold record replicas and things like that so that's a couple of historical things about ocean springs. Also I believe this place Gulf hills was the the site of the Very First Ladies Professional Golf Tournament. I remember reading that somewhere. Okay so I just mentioned to places you could stay so you can stay in love me. Tender love be sweet. You happen to be traveling with an entourage of people stay there. The roost is another great property. And there's two other properties. I really love staying ocean springs and one is rate on Washington Avenue that downtown that I mentioned and it's called the end at Ocean Springs. It's it's a very very small boutique. Hotel they only have two suites. But it's right there in the heart of downtown and one sweet is closer to do the main street of Washington one step back so depending on which we stay on your two steps from the main street or your ten steps apps from the main street but that property elegantly designed then it's actually a sister property of the roost so the same people manage it and they're both very architectural a significant and and popular and romantic all right ocean springs and I would probably recommend someone stay there for two or three nights. The Walter Anderson Museum is right there in downtown on. It's fourteen steps from the end that I talked about and you can go there and see the the works of Walter Anderson to his the artists that I mentioned before and one of the local heroes. It's really a fascinating knitting art museum. visit some of the shops that are along the street. It's probably about a half quarter to a half mile to get to the waterfront front. So when you get the waterfront and you have amazing sunsets and sunrises a couple of outfits in town that will rent kayaks or sopped soon so you can get out on the water and we'll talk about restaurants. Sure one of my favorite restaurants in the United States is called vestige so it's V. E. S. T. I g. g. e. and it's right there and ocean springs. The chef is named Alex Perry P. E. R. R. Y.. And he was nominated last year for a James Beard Award for the chef in the south or southeastern United States. I don't know how they're categories. Exactly he's one of those chefs that really pushes the envelope trying ingredients. He's married to a Japanese woman so he's always bringing an international spices and flavors and things. It's like that and his restaurants been there about five years so he admitted the first years. I'm just surviving and trying to get people to recognize who I am and then in your to your three trying different things. He's like now I'm just GonNa like gotTa do whatever I can to shock people and throw things out there and see what what what's l.. Except so it's truly one of the most innovative places I've been to and in the United States and when you say innovative what kind of the things did you have. That were innovative where you were expecting something. Savory there would be a sweet thing in there or he would be introducing some spices. And you wouldn't wouldn't recognize what it is and you know that he has a Japanese wife and see us so Mike. Oh this is so far eastern Asian spicy like. Oh No. It's something that I from Iran or some Persian spice that he picked up somewhere. You don't expect to find this and the southeastern United States definitely not in Mississippi. Yep So have used ringing flavors and concepts that that are unexpected. No honestly I would say in this region in the world. I expect fried. And and that's a reasonable expectation. Shrimp and grits are something that every restaurant's going to happen. Everyone's going to have a different take on it and it's good.
