"hurricane" Discussed on Short Wave

"Okay. Becky. We are doing a little understanding hurricane forecasts one on one let's say hurricane has just formed in the Atlantic we'll give it a name Maybe. Hurricane. Dunkin. A Hurricane Dunkin is ripping through what happens. So Hurricane Dunkin has just formed and the National Hurricane Center data. Miami is tracking where it's headed. So one of the first things if this were to happen they would do is publish a map and you've probably seen this map it's got a little dot or an x where the storm is out in the water, and then there's a rounded coon extending out from that point toward the land in basically it shows where the storm will. Go yet to me they look kind of like Tadpoles I. Don't know if it looks like you. You know you have like tapered and then a blob on the other kind of extending our there usually all over twitter and TV weather broadcast when there's a hurricane pretty exactly you nailed it it's an incredibly popular map. A lot of people see it when a hurricane is for land, and so a lot of people use them to figure out if the storm is headed their way. And the folks at the National Weather Service they call this map, the cone of uncertainty map. The cone of uncertainty doesn't really inspire a ton of confidence in me. When I hear it literally has the word uncertain in it. Well, that's the right way to react actually because you've hit on the problem with this map, the map does not show where the storm will go. It shows where the storm might go and the cone that extends out from the storm it represents where the. Center of the storm is likely to end up as the storm moves. Okay. So we're the center of the storm is likely to end up. That's a lot of caveats that's very different than what I thought. Yeah. So let's do a little test here. Let's say you live in Miami Florida and you're looking at this cone of uncertainty map Hurricane Dunkin, and you see that the border of the cone comes near Miami, but it doesn't include. MIAMI. Are you safe from Hurricane Dunkin Emily? Based on the tone in your voice I am going to say no. Why not? Well. Because the cone is just where the storm is likely to go. So it could shift direction and hit Miami. Yes that is one reason correct. But there's actually a second reason. Remember the cone is the likely path of the center of the storm. So you've dealt with the likely part of that sentence I'm going to deal with the center of the storm part of the sense 'cause here's the thing hurricanes can be huge hundreds of miles across. So even if the path doesn't change if Miami is right outside the cone on that map, you could still experience hurricane-force winds flooding the whole nine yards. Yeah. Yeah. So I can completely see people misunderstanding that then does that misunderstanding happen a lot? Yes totally. So Luckily, somebody has studied this unsurprisingly that team of researchers in Florida Alberto Cairo and his colleagues at the University of Miami looked at how people interpret the cone of uncertainty map and they found that people are really confused. They think think they're safe when they're not some people misunderstand what direction the storm is going in. It's a mess long story short don't trust your first tuition doug treasure for steak because probably. If you just stare at him for a couple of seconds. Ju will get it wrong. Yeah. This is really important information and your first piece of advice is to triple check your assumptions about where the storm is going and whether you could be affected don't just take a quick glance at the map. Exactly. Okay. Great. What's next because personally, I would like to know what I'm supposed to do with that information. If I figured out that Hurricane Duncan is headed for my house in Miami. So in order to figure. Out How to prepare you need to know what hazards you're gonNA expect with the storm and which ones are the most dangerous to you whether that's water coming from the ocean or rain or wind, and this is where you have got to go back to that kind of uncertainty map back map is usually published with information about the storms wind category right and that's like if it's a category two hurricane or category three hurricane or whatever. Exactly the categories they range from tropical storms with sustained winds below seventy four. Miles an hour up to category five storms with sustained winds above one hundred, fifty, six miles per hour, and that's all the categories main why I will say it again that is all they mean they do not tell you anything else about the effects of the storm, which is a problem because although high winds can destroy buildings. Water is the most deadly part of a hurricane and a storms category doesn't tell you anything about flooding will cause. It only tells you about wind that is shocking to me I had no. I had no idea. So this is lesson number two. I guess don't assume that a weaker storm like tropical storm or category one hurricane is in dangerous because. Those storms can still flat your house exactly, and in recent years, we've seen storms like this. So Hurricane Harvey when it hit Houston was a tropical storm. So don't count out the so-called week storms they can really mess you up. Or as Michael Brennan, the senior hurricane specialist at the National Hurricane Center puts it. There's probably too much attention paid to the intensity of the storm water, the peak wind speeds while that certainly a factor and what the impacts of the storm could be. It's the water hazards that kill the most people primarily storm surge, but then also freshwater flooding. So becky, where can people get information about flood risks specifically from hurricanes so There are a few places the National Weather Service does publish maps that show how much storm surge like ocean water flooding they're predicting along the coast when a hurricane is approaching, that's a good place to start. Especially, if you live on the coast mix sense, they also publish rain total predictions especially, storms get closer to land. That's a really important thing to look at if you live farther inland because especially with climate change. Dump just massive amounts of rain really far inland right and I feel like we've seen that a lot in recent years. Yeah. Basically every year since two, thousand, seventeen there's been a hurricane that caused serious flooding because of rain sometimes a really long way from where it came ashore and one thing to remember here is that the information that's most helpful to you varies according to where you live even for the same storm. So here's an. Example Michael Twenty eighteen it had really strong winds and a lot of storm surge when it hit the Florida panhandle and that was devastating for cities and towns right on the coast. So if you lived there storm surge and wind were important to you but it also dropped a ton of rain all the way up in Virginia and caused serious flooding there too. So people living in those places they need to look for different information got. It but if you don't have a ton of time like if you're looking to make a life or death decision in a pinch, where should you turn to I for this information? She just bookmark the National Weather Service website. Yeah. So people they can go directly to the National Hurricane Center website. That's part of the National Weather Service or look at their social media accounts. That's a good way to get some of this information especially the. Wind and storm surge information. But for flooding from rain and a lot of places, local news and local emergency officials are GonNa be more accurate and that's because they know the drainage systems for the local area and they can help predict which places are in the most danger from water and local news and local government are also good places to look because that's where the evacuation orders are gonna come from if that's what's in the cards. I do like any story where the main takeaway is pay attention to local news I know you that's very helpful but what I still don't understand. Actually, why so much of this responsibility this decision making falls on individuals like why do I need to look multiple places to figure out if I'm in harm's way? Yes I also had this question I think it's a good one people who study how we communicate about hurricanes say that this is one of the most annoying things about the current system even though forecasters are out.

You know four different buckets. They cover extending on point and benefits covering the payroll tax, curbing evictions and deferring student loans. They don't address a number of of other items that need funding such a cool additional aid for testing in vaccine development support for that PPP of program for small businesses, So that is another thing that Democrats are worried about here. And the question is, Do you know what it'll get back to the negotiating table were so waiting to hear what Happens asleep between Democrats and White House negotiator debate for that extra 400 bucks and unemployment benefits. The president is taking that money from the Natural disaster fund, and that's right before what a lot of people expect to be a very active hurricane season, and the feds would pay 300 bucks states would have to pay $100. How do you force states to pay that money is on interesting issue because there's a lot of confusion among governors as to how this plan would be implemented to that 400 Dollars, 300 of which the federal government will agree to pay. Now it's a question of units and whether the state will pay $100. But as of right now, the way the order is written in the way that the Department of Labor has so far given guidance city states in order to even get that $300 from the federal government What it needs to make a commitment to pay that $100 so reading from the order is not entirely clear how this would be implemented states to be able to move around Suns that they've already allocated and other portions of their budget. But it's something that Republicans and Democratic governors have in a way Stern's about and where additional funding, for example, would come for schools and other items that may need to fund in the fall. Do the president's actions really have as much power as he's saying they do? Yeah, another question that debate as well. We'll see how the $400 program hands out here. It already seems like there's a great deal of confusion over at the other is the executive order on renters. The one with the curb. Eviction is unclear whether that really has much Keith because it doesn't say that it's going to stop affection, just orders the federal government and federal agencies to attempt to slow these down, so that's one thing we're hearing from Democrats on Capitol Hill over the weekend and today after the president sign, he's memoranda, and these orders is they don't really carry much weight, but they don't really have a Keith as some of the supporters of these orders.

Rejuvenation and Propagation With Ken Druse

"I called you the other day and I'm like Oh, it's a mess everything. So overgrown and I'm telling you about my call is that's taken the. Anna's hip in the Salvia swamped by the whatever and you're laughing at me and so. What's the time for can? Besides facelifts. But just just because you aren't having guests visit doesn't mean you let the whole thing go to pot. Or you're thoughts go to pot. He's GonNa Discipline Me I publicly out loud on the radio. You said, you're pinching things so they get kind of thicker but. You May. It may be time to cut stuff back I. Guess I'm I'm using a modest sounding verb but yeah, you're right some cutbacks will you I have these big balls you've been here and you know people who visited if seen them through like big low terra cotta bowls on the patio and other places they're kind of you know and I group smaller pots around them but they're they're sort of the big statement centerpiece things for my annuals usually and and you know. Not. Everything grows at the same rate and put it all in when it's small, you know little things from the garden center but then something's grow more lushly than others and so like the Coleus, for instance. 'cause you know. Yeah. When you're cutting those Coleus bag you you mentioned that you could route them in water. You can also in some situations, just stick them back in the same container if you've got space and then that'll get even more lush and full without hanging over and losing its Bottomley's and stuff. Because, when you when you pinch or break off that parent plant branch and you'll get more leaves on that one, and then you have these pieces that you can either sticking or route in water or I like to use per light. Okay. So containers with like a pot of per light. SMALLPO- of per light and. Moist in the per light Tampa down really hard that really seems to help, and then I drill a hole in the per like with a pencil and sticking my cutting and firm the per light back around the cut and again, and you want to remove a couple of bottom leaves of the cutting the cuttings about. Four to six nodes long. So it's depending on the type of plant. Three to five inches long and some some plant. Coleus. Might route and two to four weeks. Then you have a new plant with roots and you carefully pry it out of the per light or in the case of water, you want to move it when the roots are less than an inch and a half long and sometimes roots made him water have a little trouble adjusting to a lower oxygen or higher oxygen medium. But anyway, you can stick them back in the same container that you took them from or just what you need Margaret. Another container of Coleus definitely need that. That's absolutely what I need. 'cause I'm doing such a good job managing the ones that I have this year. But seriously it has been kind of an epicure in the sense of We all are realities are changed Completely you know our patterns of life are changed. I mean, I'm stating the obvious and and on top of that in our region and many other regions, there's been severe weather so we have had. I've had almost no rain until a hurricane in fact, I should ask you how did you do during the hurricane that was just a couple of days ago I had a couple of inches of rain. Outages Day or two but not. Terrible terrible like many areas nearby had much. No, you were praying for rain. Also, a lot of areas they're still places New Jersey that don't have electricity. We lost power for almost twenty four hours. But we had five and a half inches of rain, and then that's stopped and then the wind came in the wind was really a lot of wind but. Knock would not trees and I've got tree did trees here. So I thought Oh that's GonNa be something there was there was one stick about four and a half feet long from the ash tree that was stuck into the lawn straight up. It's always funny when that happens in a big storm when it's also like spear gets thrown and it yeah, it really lands like right as if someone. INSERTED. It with with force while someone did. Yeah. Now, I had a couple of inches of rain and ninety. I keep saying to myself is this whole year? The theme weatherwise has been it never rains, but it pours it won't rain for a month practically and then we get the torrential gully washers. It's almost no rain. Yeah. Half. An hour of tons of you know you think finally and then it turns out it's dry under the trees sometimes. And you got to listen to half an inch but I was thinking about what we were talking about just before if you make a new plant and you potter it up of Coleus or a sweet potato vine or Begonia. You can carry. You can try to carry that over in a very sunny window inside and by March that's probably not going to be a very pretty plant, but you can cut that back and it'll make new growth and then make cuttings of the new growth and you can save a lot of money because you can use that to fill your those cuttings to fill your containers.

"hurricane" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know

"All right so hurricane names are named after people now This wasn't always the case and added no this kind of cool, but for many hundreds of years. If you were in the West indies, you adhere hurricanes named after. The Catholic Saints Day on the day. That storm made landfall, so it would be like Hurricane San. Felipe a hit Puerto, Rico and on September thirteenth, Eighteen, seventy six, and another little fun. Fact is if another hurricane hits on that same day, which actually happened in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight on September thirteenth, they would name it the second, so that was hurricane. San Felipe as the second. During world. War Two is when. We started to give human names and they were all masculine names though. Followed that whole like Bravo Whiskey, tango thing. How does that I? Don't understand that. Well. It's like that. What do you mean it's like? It's those aren't names I don't understand it either from what I saw. From what I saw! We didn't really start to use names in the West Until I, think the fifties or the seventies. So, masculine names like Bravo, and tango is just A. They're calling that a masculine name I guess so because I think we started using human names in the fifties and then We started using Male and female names in the seventies I was I. Were There Ladies Right Yeah? And they say well, that's that's not cool the name that after A. Woman in every time you guys show like the weather model of forecast model. It's it's not a hurricane. It's a woman with rollers and your hair in a rolling pin yelling. Seem sexist. And everyone finally said you know you're right. That is sexist, so we're going to start to alternate between men's names and women's teams, and so at the beginning of every hurricane season the The what is the World Meteorological Association? Organization. Sorry, they release a list of all the names that the the Atlantic hurricane season could possibly have in each name starts with a different letter ABCD and so on. Can I list this year's yeah. You Got Arthur K. Bertha, Nice. Cristobal yeah. You Got Dali. You Got Eduard FA. And we should mention to that they news. You know names from Places all over the world now. which is great because hurricanes, effect places all over the world. So you have faith and you have guns. you have Hana. You have I don't even he pronounced. This I s a SAS is as. I S A. S I S. Sure as I say us, then you've got. Josephine nice name. You Got Kyle. You Got Laura got, Marco. You've got nanna sweet Nanna. You've got Omar Paulette, which I for some reason sounds funny to me. Yeah Hurricane Pauline. You've got rene. Sally, Teddy Vicki and finishing up, because they don't have wires e for some reason. Wilfred. Hurricane Wilford sounds tough or an ex. Humans predicted that hurricane. Nana's going to be a particularly bad one. She calls me grandma name. I think so yeah, and there's actually a long standing myth. That was supposedly found to be correct by some study a few years back that. Don't respect the. Female names of hurricanes. But yes, so there's this whole thirteen respect. There's okay I i. don't know what's wrong with me. I'm putting everything so terribly day but get this. There's this this this urban legend that. Hurricanes have women's names are the most destructive. People don't take them as seriously and they don't leave, so there's more people present to be killed. When a hurricane lands for a woman named hurricane than a man named hurricane, and for a long time for a long time, it was just this kind of old wives, tale or something, and then this this study found in like I. Think two thousand, fourteen or something like that that no this actually is true. Somebody sat down and crunched numbers, and then finally I think two years ago there like this study was terrible, and that's absolutely not true. If we looked at the numbers to, and that's just not the case. All right, let's get to now because that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. It is dumb, but it has like this weird kernel of truth to it. It's like a perfect urban legend. You know what I mean. Yeah, because it's it believable. Yeah, and WHO's going to sit down and prove it one way or another you know. Yeah, that's true. Wait hold on one more thing. Choke while we're on names there are different names elsewhere in the world. So the names you said those are for Atlantic hurricanes in Australia, they have their own set of names that they named cyclones, and then elsewhere in the world there's thirteen member nations that name typhoons, and some cyclones countries like Bangladesh India and Thailand. Each one submits thirteen names, and each list contains thirteen names from each one of those countries, so you have one hundred and sixty names to choose from every year so depending on where you are in the world, patterns going to have a much more localized name than than what you would expect. That's right, and if a hurricane is really destructive, they will retire that and. I'm using air quotes there because they really just put it down for ten years. I don't know why they don't just don't do it forever. Like there should never be another like an eleven years. Surely they won't have a Hurricane Katrina or an Andrew. Harvey right I don't know. Why would they so many names I? Don't know why. Bring any name back. I have no idea I think they're like. We have better things to do than come up with more stupid names. You know. Yeah I just I mean they obviously do that to avoid confusion, in wants. His storm is sort of this legendary storm like Katrina. there's just no reason to ever name another one that knows no I'm with you I agree If you don't believe in luck I, just think it's not a good idea. It does seem like ten years. A little short I could not see them doing another Katrina. You know no fish. No Way, so let's talk about climate change you want to. Yeah, well before we talk about climate change as quickly as far as the historical record goes, you know there's always been hurricanes, and this will kind of segway nicely into climate change, because things are getting worse, but they're always have been hurricanes even way back in the day. We didn't have great records, but. There are You can do research on like cave wall, drawings, and things like that seemed to indicate stuff like hurricanes, and I think those Lsu team that studied thousands of years of lake bed evidence, and they can tell that over I think like thirty four hundred years there have been about a dozen category for higher in that area most of which were in the past thousand years. It seems low, doesn't it? Yeah it does but I. Mean that's just for that. Area another one. There was a really big hurricane historically speaking when gingas Kahn was going to invade Japan. In twelve seventy four. The Mongols were invading. Japan there's a fleet that had something like one hundred or two hundred thousand people on board, and they were really going to invade Japan and a hurricane blew in and sunk the fleet, and the Japanese had a name for this incredible Miraculous Act of mercy by whatever God was watching over.

"Hurricane Katrina devastated more than ninety thousand square miles of the southern coast of the United States. It produced more than thirty three tornadoes and winds that reached one hundred and seventy miles per hour. It resulted in one hundred. Sixty one billion dollars worth of damage. Millions of people lost their homes and an estimated one thousand eight hundred and thirty. Three people died. It was a natural disaster. There was nothing anyone could do to stop the rain or the wind but there were ways of mitigating its effects at nine thirty. Am On August. Twenty eighth two thousand five. The mayor of New Orleans Ray Nagin ordered a mandatory evacuation. It was the first of its kind for the metropolitan area of one point three million people before the day's end an estimated one million left their city and their homes behind another twenty thousand or so sought shelter in the Louisiana Superdome. It was labeled a huge of last resort for those who needed it. The arena was built to withstand two hundred mile per hour winds and flooding up to thirty five feet. The National Guard had three hundred troops stationed inside but they did not accept pets. Most evacuees assumes they be returning home shortly after the hurricane passed many set up their cats and dogs with food and water gave them a hug and squeeze and told them that they'd be right back but as the Soom got closer more than one hundred thousand people still remained in the city. Some believe the house could withstand the hurricane others didn't have access to transportation or couldn't afford to leave but an estimated thirty to forty percent of people who remained stayed because they refused to abandon their pets at six ten. Am On August. Twenty ninth two thousand. Five Hurricane Katrina made landfall in southeast Louisiana. At the time it was a category three hurricane at its peak it reached category five the highest classification that exists category. Three Hurricane Wins are one hundred eleven to one hundred twenty nine miles per hour while category five hurricane winds a one hundred fifty seven miles per hour or higher faster than most high speed trains because New Orleans sits on the coast. A system of man made walls and canals have surrounded the city since the eighteen thirties. By two thousand five they were outdated due to lack of proper upkeep by nine. Am less than three hours off. To Hurricane Katrina made landfall. The first Levy in New Orleans was breached before the storm was over. There would be at least forty nine. More water flooded into the low lying areas of the city half of which is below sea level before the end of the day. Eighty percent of the city was under as much as twenty feet of water. The one hundred thousand people still in New Orleans were running out of options. First responders acted as quickly as they could trying to save lives but emergency evacuation procedures ignored one population entirely pets in a press conference. Michael Brown the director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency or FEMA explicitly told reporters that dogs and cats were not his concern. His priority was to save human lives. The Red Cross and the United States Coast Guard had similar policies organizations that did specialize in animal rescue like the Louisiana Society for the prevention of Cruelty to animals or SPCA didn't have the resources to weather the elements. There were no first responders for the biggest population. Still living in New Orleans pets and strays. It was a blind spot in evacuation procedures in dire straits. Man's best friend was deemed non-essential Labrador retrievers paste stranded on rooftops Maine. Coon cats clung branches in toxic floodwaters. Animals of all shapes and sizes were barricaded in homes waiting for the owners to return as filthy water poured into living rooms near a bus stop in Baton Rouge. A dog was found tied up on the side of the road. He had an unopened container of dog food with him and nearby notes read. Please take care of my dog. His name is chucky. Chucky was lucky enough to be found by Louisiana State Treasurer. John Kennedy who took him in but not every dog was so blessed. Some owners tried to bring their pets with them to safety. One woman cried to officials as she boarded and evacuation bus after losing her house. Her job and her car. She didn't want to lose her dog too. She had no other choice she had to let him go similarly a small fluffy white mixed breed. Dog named snowball was torn from the arms of her young owner. While waiting to board a bus the boy was so overcome with despair. He dropped to his knees and vomited. The actions weren't intended to be cruel time energy and space where all limited resources and rescuers were given strict orders. No animals but there was absolutely no way that Don at Williams was leaving behind Sebastian. His Fluffy Black Cocker Spaniel. His home had already been flooded and the two had escaped together. They survived Hell and literal highwater. Morad even located an air mattress that he could put Sebastian on to tow him. Through the sometimes neck-deep floods but even as they found elevation on interstate. Ten and a helicopter arrived. They were far from salvation. Sebastian wasn't allowed to board. Merit acted fast. He found a black trash bag and hid Sebastian inside. There was just enough airflow for the dog to breathe. Moran said a quick prayer begged. Sebastian remained quiet and bored. It the copter incredibly. Sebastian seem to understand after the flight. They made their way to a bus where there were more furry stowaways puppies kittens and birds were hidden in suitcases under blouses. Inboxes.

"The political Gabfest for December. Twelve Point Nineteen crossfire hurricane edition. I'm David Plots of Atlas Obscure I'm in Washington. DC just down the street from Congress where the House Judiciary Committee is even as we start. The tape is debating amendments to the articles of impeachment joining me from New York City studios of CBS. Radio is John dickerson of CBS's sixty minutes. Hello John Hello and welcome. I think I say welcome. But that's okay. I knew I made some general welcoming John. This being beneficent from the campus purpose of Yale University the Hardest Working Person Journalism only lawn of the New York Times magazine. Hello Emily Only David is making up for an earlier description of me which perhaps we'll play at the very end on today's Gabfest the house files and debates articles of impeachment against the president. What is going to happen? What will happen if he's impeached? And is this a wise political move. Then the FBI's inspector general finds no partisan motivation or witch hunt and the two thousand sixteen FBI investigation of president trump but plenty of FBI incompetence since misbehavior or corner-cutting we will discuss and then the Washington Post gets hold of a huge trove of confidential documents about the Afghanistan. War Is this a new Pentagon papers. Will this change the course of that. Endless war plus we will of course have cocktail chatter this morning. The House Judiciary Committee is starting. It's debate over. Two articles of impeachment that has Democrats are leveling against president trump one regarding his abuse of power and attempting to blackmail the Ukrainian government into investigating Joe Biden forcing them to launch or actually announced investigation as a as shit in order to get military aid that Congress authorized actually delivered to them the other article regarding his constant obstruction of Congress's attempt to investigate him over this attempt to blackmail Ukrainian government. There will be significant debate today. Thursday over these articles and they are expected acted to then be voted on party line. Vote with the House. Judiciary Committee passing these articles. And they will then go on to the full Congress or they'll be voted on next week and if again if those articles passed the president will have been impeached by the house and will then face a trial in the Senate so emily when he he starts off by explaining maybe what the two articles which will probably not be amended. Democrats will probably quash any amendment so the two articles as written what what are they basically saying nine. The first one is about trump's abuse of power and the second one is about his obstruction of congress so abusive power relating adding to the Ukraine affair The idea here is that trump corruptly solicited foreign interference in the twenty twenty election with all the Ukraine not against involving the pressure campaign. Trying to get president's Alinsky to open or investigation or at least at announced investigation and into the Biden's and also Pursuing trump's unfounded theory that it was Ukraine not Russia that meddled in the twenty six thirteen elections so that's the the substance of that one obstruction of congress is about all the ways in which the administration has refused to cooperate and comply with congressional subpoenas. And so the point here here is that rather than Contest particular lines of questioning or particular requests for evidence the administration has just issued these. He's blanket refusal to cooperate in any way with the impeachment inquiry and Congress is correctly saying that this is unprecedented and the sort of underlying debate about these articles of impeachment is whether it was a smart or mistaken to only do two there. were up to the last minute. Debates with in Congress gress about whether to also include an article of impeachment about trump's emoluments violations. The idea that he's been raking in money from foreign governments at the trump hotel hotel and other places. And then this question of whether there was anything to salvage from the Mueller investigation. There was a I thought sharp piece in. I mean lean. Sharpen good way peace and love affair by Susan Hennessy. Arguing that if nothing else. Congress should have included an article about trump's effort to get former former White House counsel Don mcgann to falsify the record about mcgann trump's request to mcgann. Fire Muller Muller. Yeah trump's apparently apparently said to mcgann. Can you go fire muller and mcgann said No. I'm going to resign before I do that. And then later apparently trump Or maybe I should use the word. Allegedly Lee trump went back to mcgann. And said. Can you falsify the records so that we can cover up that I ever asked you to do that. So Susana as he was arguing like if nothing else that that is a clear crime to order a falsification of evidence and the Democrats should have included that. But they didn't they want the narrative to be clean and focused on Ukraine. And so. That's where we jack. I just wanted to reject briefly about Don mcgann You know there was this debate about whether staffers should ignore them. The President or not Don mcgann by ignoring the president. Probably helped him keep his job carry on of course. The staffers ignore the president when he gives them orders. They don't ignore him when he tells them not to testify when he tells them testify they obey slavishly and they don't show up testify but that's another point so there's a school of thought John and Jamal Buoy of the New York. Times has articulated this repeatedly including on the fast Over thanksgiving that Democrats should drag this investigation. The impeachment out and that they should've kept the investigation open and vast and wide given the scale of the president's misdeeds and corruption. Because it really he is. I mean they're the two things that are tate here. Certainly if proven and if if the case is made they are certainly impeachable and and you know by my lights something something that makes him unfit to be president. But there's a ton of other stuff. Emily are mentioned a couple of them. There's the constant line there's obstruction of justice in the muller. So so what's the reason to. What's the reason to keep this concise tight fast? So the reason is you've gotta how you want to keep control of the house. You've got a number of Members of the House. Who are in districts where there is either's skepticism about impeachment or There is There are voters who care about my bowed how much of the public conversations taken up by peach. They'd rather be hearing and those Democrats running those districts would would rather be talking about something else in the. The extended impeachment is that the constant headline they will every day. Have to figure out how to get around impeachment to show voters that care about things that affect them in their lives. I guess in the underlying theory I think it relies on the idea that That having an impeachment process kicks up either a new information that will we'll get through the already. The views people already have about Donald Trump and that impeachment has some special some special venue for that. That seems to me a hard case to make. It seems to me that that people are basically they have their their views about Donald Trump. And if you're a Democrat you want to excite their most negative views views as close to the moment they make their voting decision as possible. I don't know that impeachment is the venue through which you do that. I think that President Trump AH excites those people's negative feelings about him through his own behavior. I think that an impeachment process and testimony and members of Congress Congress Talking about his behavior is less effective. And I think there's been no evidence certainly there was no certainly in two thousand eighteen. This was the case. There's no oh evidence that Donald Trump is going to stop providing people who are unhappy with him or are susceptible to being unhappy with him. He's going to keep providing that information weather weather Impeachment happens or not any may do it in a more powerful or colorful form to is the argument there. Then the argument is we do it because it is our civic constitutional constitutional duty to do it. We do it briskly because like because it's just it gets too complicated to be becomes to compensate. We know briefly asleep and we can count on the president. Insofar as our goal is to win this election and to have anti-trump sentiment motivate voters trump will do a fine find job of doing that on his own because I think the articulated perfectly and just put a fine point on what we talked about last week. which is it is absolutely? The House is duty to put all of this down in writing as as they see it and have people take up or down votes on specific behavior. Go all the way back to the constitution. Show the way in which this is. What's at issue here is is the central question of the presidency? As it was conceived will the president acting in his own interest or in the country's interests that is the big casino. You know in all presidential behavior so now whether it's been proved or not as a separate question but whether it's a legitimate area of inquiry there is no more legitimate area of inquiry if you look at the way a they thought about the presidency so you WanNa get all that down in writing for sure and then the political question for impeachment. It seems to me as do you. As a as a partisan get the maximum benefit it from tonnage or simplicity is simplicity of narrative You know president asked for favor shouldn't have done that or is it. Emoluments Muller knew about wikileaks but lied about. It told his lawyer to go. Fire Muller but didn't You know all the rest and I. That's it seems to me where the the political whole question the Democrats kind of flicked it the pattern of misbehavior in a kind of introductory paragraph right. So they didn't leave it out entirely but you know the the argument against narrow. Isn't I don't think it's a well. I guess Jemil's making a political argument. There's also just a like right side of history argument that you don't want to appear to have condoned or let slide all this other behavior. Emily can you imagine a current Washington not a fantastic fan fantasy fantasy Washington of Joe Biden and John McCain and tip O'Neill all knocking back drinks real Washington where any impeachment could be carried out fairly and with integrity because I cannot result. CRATS are being unfair to president trump. Or do you mean that you can imagine the Republicans looking at this in an objective fashion. I cannot imagine I cannot. The Republican Party appears to have gone gone so far off the edge that they see their nothing. I mean the president's behavior savior by any previously articulated standard that any member of Congress has subscribed to is so far outside. The bounds is so far so at rages. They just that you just can't even imagine Th that for them not to take seriously impeachment now means that they they simply could not take any impeachment seriously. I mean that literally if this is not if what's happening with President. Trump is not does not rise to some level of impeachment worthy consideration consideration of impeachment then Publicans. Nothing will ever do it and I think the Democrats may find themselves in the same position. which is that because of how? Republicans ends of responded over trump. That presumably the next Democratic president..

"Podcast specifically created for classrooms and families to learn music together episodes are targeted to three different grade levels kindergarten first grade second and third what's it looking saw that found means the winds are shifting rightly oh no excuse you oh sorry oh also it's time that's correct it is hot seat time when we put our experts on the hot seat while they answer Sophie's questions Lisa who should we put on the the seat I you asking me I think Dennis Chicago I guess he is a hurricane hunter and my favorite TV show kerr came hunter house the TV show yeah it's about a hurricane who has to go catch deers that's I love Hurricane Hunter Dennis you did a great job thank you very much okay all right then so v what question do you have to start us off for Dennis Okay Dennis how and where do hurricanes form how and where did they form that's what she asked Dennis I know I'm not stolen it just it's unusual they form generally over water air starts to circulate in a certain degree a certain position now on the North Northern Hemisphere that hurricanes do an counter Awkward Position and in the Southern Hemisphere they do it in a clockwise position so they formed when cold air meets warm air and air starts to circulate when they get to a certain speed need to get categorized as hurricanes okay so there is when you said in the different hemispheres the hurricanes rotate different ways what is the force that causes that cold aren't you know you're talking to pilot not a scientist but I suppose it would be the gravitational spin of the earth but pretty much just fly into them why do you do that well have you tried not doing that my actually my beginning career in the Marine Corps one of the things we taught to avoid was flying into hurricanes Anytime you saw wind like that you you flew above it yeah fires a pilot I'd be like Oh hey look at hurricane let's not do that that's normally the general wisdom but apparently some scientists want to get up there and see what's going on and we go inside and drop these thing called Sondhi believes in there and gives them all kinds of information I retired from the Marine Corps in Nineteen Ninety a flute C. One thirties there and we moved down to Biloxi and that's where the hurricane places and I do it because well I'm part of the Air Force reserve now and gives me something to do you should try solitaire could do that L. Safer Okay so crystal what made you want to do your job well I am fascinated the weather especially storms I remember when I was really really really little girl it was Hurricane Bob and my dad was holding me and we went one card into the House and things were flying everywhere and it was so fierce but I wanted to be in it so add it just it riled everything inside of me basically and I find it absolutely thrilling everything about these intense storm activating I like women like a bit of course documentary so crystal what's an average day like at your job you know waking up we get right to the models see what the latest is as far as the ext five days out and anything beyond five days are confidences lower and then we look at the current conditions so we look at what's happened running west of us and then that's going to tell us what's coming in our direction next and then we write the forecast which you know today it's breezy signees gorgeous mild above average there's no hurricanes going on you yeah and then you look at the models and are you actually on unscreened on television giving these weather forecasts sometimes yeah I actually I fill in for news twelve and that's it's a lot of fun when there's not hurricanes or blizzards or extreme weather when there's just basic happy sunshine whether we're actually doing a mood cast now which is pretty fun mood cast a mood cast is when we put emojis for our forecast in our timeline basically you know we see some rainfall then we put a little moody face and Sunshine is happy and meatballs for when it's okay Dennis when you when you fly into a hurricane what is your goal what do you want to achieve.

"Doing this and and you know we didn't really know better. you know we could fly in as low as five hundred feet. If it was a stronger storm may be fifteen hundred feet. I mean yeah fifteen hundred feet or or five thousand feet sometimes typically low because that's the highest winds are are right around around fifteen hundred feet and you're trying to sample the you know the most severe part of the storm so if you want to sample the highest wins you have to be down there at those altitudes now they've they realized that you know if if something something happens on the aircraft that doesn't give you a lot of I've altitude to work with to try to fix things and so there's been a couple of close calls there was one Jeff Masters Remembers Go Yeah Hurricane Hugo yes jess jeff masters with the founder of weather underground those those listeners familiar with weather underground very harrowing experience World Windsurfing Buddies. Yes so yes there was one there and and then there there were some experiments that were conducted the blast experiments in early two thousands where because of salt deposition on the the engines sometimes they were flameouts where they could lose an engine so they realize realized that that was a consequence of of low level flights and picking up a lot of salt from the Aerosol Aerosol from the sea surface so now they tend to fly higher and have expendable that can measure those winds download hello dave gps on and and also remote-sensing using the stepped frequency microwave radiometer and we are back on the weather geeks podcast and I'm talking with Dr Mark Powell who I I knew from the Noah Hurricane Research Division. He's now working on our Ram S. H. Wind is coming to from IHEART Radio Studios in Tallahassee Florida Florida and you just heard some fascinating things about his early career. I would say the bulk of his career in terms of his work at HR D. and flying through hurricanes McCain's to collect data for research and even for some operational uses as it goes we have the Air Force her hurricane hunters and then Noah certainly has hurricane hunters as well or hurt planes fly into storms. They even have planes fly over storms. If you will somewhat with Gulfstream plane as well NASA has planes that do these types of things as well. This leads me to h wind. your research is led you to H wind snapshot. Tell US little bit about this product why it's being developed in Kenneth Supplement or replace some of these dangerous aircraft trips yeah that's kind of an interesting story so you know it sounds really the heroic and offline into these hurricanes but what I didn't mention as I usually get sick on about half of well you certainly we certainly understand stand and so I was looking for ways to contribute maybe by not having to fly as often and I I I noticed that the the aircraft the no aircraft had air satellite data link where they could send data directly to the national hurricane the center and then I had the opportunity because HR D. was one floor below the National Hurricane Center in court when we were in coral gables to see how that information formation was being used and so I had a whole bunch of ideas of how to better utilize that information and that that was the that really started me on the track towards and of course the the developing Internet also helped of real time observation based raced winfield analysis from multiple platforms so using everything we can get our hands on being sent out from the aircraft but in addition booties weather station said airports ships and various satellite platforms served with different remote sensing techniques measuring winds at the surface and and because I because I was trained as is a boundary layer specialist especially at Penn State I I knew that you had to take into account the heights of animal the upstream fetch roughness to be able to standardize measurements events. You could analyze all this all these different types of measurements together to get one surface winfield analysis you heard Dr Powell Mitch and the Boundary Layer and that's for those weather geeks listeners that don't have a formal training in meteorology. That's the kind of this verse Cul Lamad or so it can actually vary and it has changed from day to night as well in terms of its depth but it's sort of this layer of the atmosphere where the surface in the lowest layer of the atmosphere sort of kind of exchange information talk to each other if you will you often hear one kilometer so the first one kilometer lower one kilometer of the atmosphere and in a hurricane environment over the ocean the boundary layer processes are very very important and so certainly would understand why in some of your early career you're collecting data or flying at low levels to to assert sample the boundary layer you mentioned satellite data. You know I'm a satellite guy spent most of my career before the University of Georgia at NASA Can you talk to the listeners listeners about some of the ways that satellite is used to measure when I know they're things like scatter arbiters and other things. Can you just give the listeners a little one on one on those types of techniques sneaks yeah sure well a scatter ometer is is one one of the main platforms we used to gather other information on winds primarily the periphery of the hurricane and they're actually improving their algorithms that you can get you can start detecting higher wins from those instruments but they're looking at the scattering of these very tiny waves that are on top of the wind waves are called capillary waves and they can detect the wind direction based on those capillary ways because the signal is different at the wave is going towards or away from the the beam that that's been transmitted from the satellite so there and and the strength of the return scattering of that signal they can actually get a wind speed and actually. It's one of the things that are H. One product has been used by NASA the European Space Agency and Canadian Space Agency to help derive these functions that go from what the satellite actually measure said it actually doesn't measure wind measure measure something that's affected by win so this the back scatter of that microwave signal is affected by wind and so they can overlay that back scattered signal on top of one of our winfield's and get that relationship between back scattered and wind speed and that's called a gps go- model function. That's what actually gets the winds from that satellite signal. I love it. We're geeking out here with Dr Mark Powell talking talking all about tropical meteorology and how we measure some of these things. I wanted to make sure you explain that because you know oftentimes. I don't think people realize just how how much satellite data is utilized. I mean we have aircraft. We have observations but this global network of satellites that Noah and NASA and other space agencies he's have up. There are important not just for research day-to-day operations. I often see the National Hurricane Center mention ask. GATT added other scatter ometer in their discussions when they're trying to the locate the center place hurricanes and you're also using inure techniques as well so along comes this risk management company. R. M. S. tell us a little bit about Ram ass and then how they got connected to the H. Wind project sure well while while I was developing this H win product in actually in Noah and we're putting our analyses out on the web have been unfortunately our funding at Noah was starting enough not to keep up and and it's getting tougher to keep the program going and I saw an opportunity to see if I could rather than see see. It's it on the shelf in in a government lab whether I could take it out into the private sector so I spent about a year working with Noah's technology partnership program to see if there's a way that I could bring it out of into the private sector after about a year I was granted the inventor writes to pigewoman product and I did a startup right here in Tallahassee at a incubator called Domi station and and I started writing my Roth. Ira To hire PhD's out of Florida State and so we got started and after about a Oh little over a year and a half we've got acquired by risk management solutions who had been using our products to help develop their hurricane their North Atlantic Hurricane risk model so that's that's how we got going in and they saw that there was a lot of talented Florida state eight and one to have a you know a some visibility here in Tallahassee so we have an office in Dan the a college town area in Tallahassee and a handful of really bright young scientists working with me and and we also employ several students of the FSU and Florida and m helping us as a as a three time Florida state alum. I I can imagine if I were a student at that time I would have been chopping at the bit to perhaps work in a company like this. What a great opportunity. one thing that you said in net discussion though I wanna Kinda fixate on for a moment because you talked about this lapse in government funding government funding no Anassa National Science Foundation Department of Energy is very important for standing up new capabilities new technology but as we know funding in the government system. Tom Is at the whim of the president the Congress and many other factors but that's interesting that you I guess a lifetime civil servant if you will or at least very much in the the civil servants system recognize the opportunities and the private sector say a little bit more about just your overall perspective on the public private partnership ship within the weather enterprise seem like he was really a nice opportunity for you. Yeah I think I think probably the that that the pressure on funding actually helped me to some extent because the the base funding of our laboratory wasn't even keeping up with inflation so the only way I was able to keep going was I had to hustle and get proposals funded even some from the private sector so after Hurricane Andrew we got some funding from Florida power and light we we got funding from the National Institutes an Institute of Building Sciences we were I was active as one of the Tech Committee for the hazardous model from from Fema sure so there were there were a bunch of kind of nonstandard funding sources that was able to successfully go after but seemed like the and even for a while we were developing this as something that could be used at the National Hurricane Center through the joint hurricane tests but as well so that that kind of prepared me for you know when you're in the private sector you gotta do that to you got to go out there and hustle to get to get clients so so you know being able to talk to some of these you know large insurance companies companies like Swiss. Re You know as a as a startup from from a little business incubator in Tallahassee was a big deal and we are back on the weather geeks podcast. I'm Dr Marshall Shepherd from the University of Georgia. I'm talking talking with Dr Mark Powell and we're talking about his fascinating imagery and product h wind and he just talked about how risk management companies are thinking about out in utilizing this very interesting wind information you to assess risk and think about sort of risk portfolio which is a big issue you now and weather and risk and even climate change in all types of other things but I want to shift gears now and d.c out again this show. We like the Geek Yeah. We Talk to meteorologist lot and weaken geek out on this show. We can really use the terminology. We're not trying to necessarily simplify things but we definitely try to explain things if we don't don't think people understand them. I'm going to bring up a term here that may not be familiar to some but then we're going to geek out on it integrated Connecticut Energy your big proponent proponent of using integrated kinetic energy. I Ki- I k. e. And you'd think that we should be using this to supplement the way we categorize hurricanes pains and that's been a big discussion in recent years with Harvey and Florence in this notion of win versus rain and Florence necessarily early was a big rain producer impacts but the Saffir Simpson scale didn't necessarily convey it. Tell us what integrated kinetic energy is and why you think we should be using it more okay sure well integrated kinetic energy is just a It's a metric for the size of the Winfield and hurricane so what we do is from one of our winfield's we'd look at the area that has wins over tropical storm force and kind of put what a checkerboard over that or grit cells over that and each each box we we square to wind multiply by the density the of the air and we sum it up into this value so it's basically kind of waiting the storm on on how much energy that is in the Winfield near the surface so we're really comes in as when you have storms said may may not be up there on the saffir-simpson scale in terms of intensity but have large winfield so so hurricane Ike was is or Hurricane Sandy. Were really good examples of this storms that were barely you know. Sandy was barely a hurricane am and then actually not a hurricane right right after landfall but a huge winfield and so that that large winfield can get a lot of water moving it can force a lot of waves waves propagate out ahead of Surrey Canes and have tremendous destructive impacts of so you can have a case say say for New Orleans. They might think what we need category five protection or for levies or something and there were stipe may or may not be a category five live it might be a huge category to just because of the large amount of water a big winfield's can get moving and I think that's an important portent point because as we talk about one of our former colleagues ed rappaport has always talked about really water is the problem in the deadly aspect of a hurricane whether that rainfall and in this case surge so you're suggesting that this I k. e. can be a nice supplemental factor in quantifying that surged surged risk if you will that's right yeah and so one of the things that we do when we're issuing are our products we go into a twenty four seven shift cycle when a when hurricanes active and RECON aircraft are flying into it were updating our analyses every three hours and work computing the integrated kinetic energy then we'll we'll compare it to other storms arms in history so that you can kinda get a bench market at least in terms of the the Winfield part and its ability to move water has this compare into Katrina or Camille or other other storms that the public and businesses are very familiar with yeah. This is fascinating. I mean I've been involved in some research with a couple of colleagues even recently on trying to have an integrated product like this but further rainfall aspect of the storm to it's a challenging problem but there's something we've been thinking about while I have well. I have you mark Powell here. We're talking with Dr Mark Powell expert on Tropical Meteorology you. I know it's different right from the I K E but you do hear it out there. So I WANNA make sure our weather geeks listeners understand the difference between a and then this term ace that you saw this that that you often hear people talk about in the hurricane world. Can you distinguish what ace is.

"On the ground <hes> when when when the government actually asked to take actions to prepare for and respond to these sorts of storms yeah i mean i it strikes me as very likely the administration didn't seem to do anything in particular to prepare for mounting a relief effort <hes> or anything anything like that in a lot of ways like you said it seemed like people viewed his tweets as his contribution to a preparation effort for americans. I think if there's a take away from i'm this whole debacle it's that there's no adult in the room here right if you're following the <unk> twitter account for <hes> clear and correct information information about national or international events you're looking at the wrong source right that that's not where you're going to find accurate information about american leadership but i don't think anyone does right i mean ideally they should be able to but no one does not like females rushing resources to alabama because you know trump had this tweet or or people people in alabama are putting shutters on their windows. It's <hes> ideally the president's. Every single word would matter but they don't know. You don't think this affects members is the public and i mean i. I don't think someone's evacuating their home because of a presidential tweet but you you don't think that this affects how how much people in alabama worry about a store i mean they turn on their local weather and they say that hurricanes not gonna hit yeah. I guess i mean i don't know i kind of wish that when he you know he talked about the hurricanes going to hit. Florida would have been nice to talk about that with more specificity. There had been worries initially that it was gonna hit. South florida by this point it was clear was not going to south florida. That's again the sort of you know more specific information that might be good for the president to include because again you know when you know when people get incorrect correct predictions about one storm. It affects respond to the next one. I mean granted. I mean it should be more careful in specific but everyone knows he's not in. Everyone in the government knows he's not and it's it's goes as bizarre disconnect. We talked about before where the president says things but doesn't necessarily affect what anyone's doing rich. What were you watching this week. Well there is a big speaking of the climate big climate <hes> forum on c._n._n. For hours and hours <hes> democrats talking about the threat of climate change and i just think this is ensure political article terms is a trap for democrats where they risk getting caught in their own bubble polling shows that people are more inclined to believe that there's <hes> a a manmade aide element to global warming more inclined to be alarmed by but still once you get to imposing a cost or an element of coercion to people i just think that's not going to sell and if trump manages threadneedle and be reelected that the candidate democratic candidate being too far out on the limb on this issue you i believe probably a contributing factor liz. What did you make of what we heard at the climate form i mean i think that the number one thing to note about the climate for him is that the party is shaping up and actually actually starting to deliver a specific practice of all plans for responding to climate change <hes> so for instance bernie sanders has floated the idea of green tennessee valley authority authority this new deal <hes> public agency that produces energy <hes> and that way the government could directly control energy production <hes> ah through this particular agency at least <hes> and reduce emissions <hes>. I think that's at least practicable right. It's it's not dreamy. It's not <hes> unspecific as other other democrats. Even in this process have <hes> alleged about the climate change response plans and so i think it signals that the party is starting to take this subject really seriously and not just jay inslee and i think that's key to selling it. <hes> there will be costs. Life will have to change <hes> in order for climate change to be rolled. Hold back or controlled. There's no way around that and i think that a serious policy is being debated by serious..

"Hurricanes fetes are slower. So we do that and lots of times then you start. Oh these button here. My model always leads to more intense hurricanes. You're seeing how one change can lead to a completely different effect. Exactly. And you do that over and over again for not a hurricane using hurricanes. That have already happened in real life means that scientists are testing their ideas against real world situations, but the results also depend on how the model itself is set up. So the Ma those that I usually work the only have hurricane and the atmosphere. So when you want to do other things like storm surge than you actually use to have put models together. So you put your. Model the the hurricane together. Your does the storm surge and made the two model stuck which other which can be very complicated, though, son, really complicated. Like, the two models might get in a fight about. Which is the better game. Something like that the point is it takes a lot to get a clear picture of what's going on inside a hurricane because hurricanes are very cloudy in more than one. I love whether puns, but the science of hurricanes is getting even more tempestuous. Oh, jeez. For those of you. Don't know. That means stormier. Yuck. Yuck. Okay. But why is it getting stormier because hurricane scientists like Susanna aren't just looking at this hurricane season in the next. They would to know what hurricanes are going to look like far into the future. And that future involves climate change. So when you have climate change, you have a warming of the atmosphere also warming in the ocean. And basically for a hurricane to happen. You have to have this warm ocean. Let me guess climate change is making oceans warmer and that affects hurricanes. Yeah. The basic sciences that oceans are warming as a result of carbon dioxide released by fossil fuels and other human activities causing climate change. Susannah compared it to a of water heating up on a stove. Imagine your boiling water. So you have their reparation from your water boiling to the atmosphere. The same thing happens in the ocean as it warms, more and more water evaporates off the surface and that evaporation provides fuel for developing hurricanes. See where this is going. So hurricanes are getting more fuel a warming world. And that means. They will be more powerful to a limit terms of what expect to happen in the future. We are quite certain that the hurricanes. We'll become more intense. But they're not going to become two times talking about small range of their intensity in prison. So it's not like we'll have category twelve hurricanes, but it is easier for hurricane to become stronger than if the oceans weren't warming up because of climate change very clear by the teary of understand hurricanes. But this models are talking about the all say the same things. So climate change is a big piece of the power.

"Today's question comes from thea wire hurricane so powerful. I think hurricanes are so powerful because there's like little gnomes cranking knobs that make things I'm not really. Great job. My default thing is there's no. I thought a default thing was there's hamsters. I mean hamsters are involved to somehow, maybe the gnomes ride the hamsters. It's a really good hypothesis Marshall, but let's try. Let's ask our listeners. Why do you think that hurricanes are so powerful? And how do you think scientists predict them before they happen? Think about it because out to ride a hamster right into the middle of the science of hurricane telling you. To get furious. Answer to the question, I talked to Susanna Camargo Susanna is from Brazil and she studied hurricanes at Columbia University in New York. And it turns out that job is something. She never predicted thought that was going to be working for hurricanes for a few months, and then twenty years later have been working with hurricanes for twenty years. Suzannah's job is to help forecast hurricanes long before they start to give people is much time as possible to prepare for them. She's been working on it for such a long time because there's still a lot. We don't understand about. How hurricanes work which makes them really challenging to predict a big part of that is how powerful they will be in. Why people think about hurricanes released the power is the wings. But that's not the only thing the hurricanes..

"Hurricane, Michael is a massive storm one that weather forecasters are calling unprecedented for the Florida panhandle region, and it comes after hurricane Florence, devastated north and South Carolina last month with extreme winds and flooding. Let's get some details about the strength of hurricane Michael, as well as how people have prepared for the storm from the Wall Street Journal's Arjan Campo Flores who joins us via Skype Ari on first of all, where are you? 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. It's obviously low, lying and.

"Is that right? It has become more thorough. Yes. The reporting of the indirect fatalities. And over the years in hurricane centers, reports on every individual tropical cyclone. We didn't always really breakdown the indirect fatalities. Part of that was data collection and so forth was harder in the past. But when win Dr Ed Rappaport deputy director, Hurricane Center when I was there. And who's still in that position. You know he was working on his indirect fatalities work when I was there and I said, do you take all the time you can because this is important work because. As he found out, we've lost nearly as many people from the indirect causes of death after tropical cycle or before during after tropical cyclones, as we have from the forces of the stormy of the direct causes are the wind and water forces taking a life in the midst of the storm blunt force trauma, my flying debris and drowning in a storm surge Neilan flood. But the indirect fatalities are like cardiovascular failure before during after in in bad conditions, you get into vehicle accidents, you get into problems with power outages. Power outages can be surprisingly damaging, Carmen. People run their generators improperly die from carbon monoxide. Poisoning people are dependent on medical equipment and that fails in power outage. They electrocuted by touching down power line, they light candles and they start fires. Power outages have taken a lot of lives that's another indirect cause, and then the the whole course of evacuation can be dangerous. So these indirect causes again have been almost as deadly in total as the direct causes. And I think the main benefit from categorizing all of those and understanding the circumstances of the fatalities is so we can change and improve our messaging to help people stay alive from the indirect causes this as much as the drag meteorologist. We want to protect people from the wind and the water. We gotta mix in there. How do you protect yourself from cardiovascular failure? How do you protect yourself from power outage? How do you stay out of trouble in your car? And so even leading up to Florence? We were throwing in. A lot of what to do, what not to do with information to survive the preparation, survived the storm and survived the aftermath both from direct and indirect causes and and a lot of the Florence fatalities are indirect. Yeah, and that's general. I wanna I wanna get your second question. Was there so much lead time we were talking about this so much on Twitter that it was is that some people argue that's problematic. What are your thoughts the farther in advance of forecast is this you'd the more uncertain? It's going to be the more probabilistic. It has to be the more what if we're going to have to be thrown in there, but I think the five day forecast lead time from the Hurricane Center along with what the pattern and what the models and what the end sambas were saying. Even beyond five days, we started talking about it well before five days, and I think in a responsible way. To give people as much heads up as possible because you know what happens when people don't get enough time, then you hear the, I was caught off guard. I didn't know that this was going to happen and all that sort of thing. So. When it's responsible and it gives people plenty of lead time to take action. I think the lead time is good, especially on the track forecast now on the intensity forecast again, you know, the models aren't as good there, but the potential was there for not only a large and slow moving hurricane with all the water problems. But the potential is also there for a very devastating kit from the wind, and we still got wind damage. Why are we afraid of a category Warner category? Two hurricane terms of the wind you ever been through one, they're not fun terms of the wind. So I don't have a problem with the lead time and. I think that. The luxury of time that that gives people to do things that maybe they didn't do before the hurricane season. It gives them time to think through their vacuous zone evacuation route. It gives them time to get supplies. It gives them time to do things to their home to get it ready to lessen the chance that the home is damaged against people sandbag. There's all kinds of things that you can do with that luxury of time. So I don't decry advance notification of the possibility to motivate people to do things. They.

"Well, before hurricane, Maria, you know, it's tough to know when to to begin this story, right? I mean, you you could begin at five hundred years ago. You could begin. You know, the story when the US took over from the Spanish in Puerto Rico. But for the sake of argument, let's begin with the most recent economic crisis in Puerto Rico, which two thousand six when a series of tax breaks that had lured American companies, they had been phased out and they were finally phased out in two thousand and six. And so you head capital flight and the government of Puerto Rico has been shut down after it, ran out of money, following a dispute between lawmakers and the island's governor. Puerto Rico, sixteen hundred state schools have been shut, leaving half a million students and forty thousand teacher. With no classes. Nearly one hundred thousand government workers have been temporary left without jobs, two thousand six. And then that's a significant year because it is right before the global financial crisis. So Puerto Rico suffered this one, two punch where their economy started crashing before the world economy started crashing. But of course they were impacted by the world economy crashing. So that's when you have this debt crisis that you referred to the debt exploding. When you say that there was this economic war against Puerto Rico prior to this and we're talking right now about two thousand six, some of the significant events that who were the perpetrators or the aggressors and what were they seeking. I've written a lot in the past about how economic shocks crises are so often exploited, not to fix the underlying reason behind the economic crisis, not to create a actual sustainable economy that is going to serve the interests of the people who live there, but distant, very opportunistic way. You use the economic crisis to push through the the wishlist of policies that rear their head and have their head through the whole neoliberal period dating back to the nineteen seventies. So it's privatization of public assets and the prophets that flow from private players getting control over previously public. Monopoly other attacks on on the public sector opening up to private players. You know, all of it deregulation, privatization of economic austerity. So that's what happened in Puerto Rico. They had an economic crisis, much like Greece had an economic crisis after after the financial crisis and much like in Greece in. Puerto Rico. It was exploited in very opportunistic ways not to deliver a healthy Connie for Puerto Ricans, but for for other people to profit. And so this really culminated in the creation of the financial oversight board where Puerto Rico, Puerto Ricans really lost control over their economy, and the governing structure was all about paying Puerto Rico's debtors rather than serving the interests of Puerto Ricans and in the name of fiscal responsibility and paying off their creditors..

"The hurricane. Welcome back to MSNBC continue our round the clock coverage of hurricane Florence. Let's go over to our weather center and see what's happening. Well, it's not looking good. As you could see the hurricane is coming off the Atlantic Ocean, like a border patrol agent beat the poor refugee half to death out in the middle of the desert. The hurricane is a cat one which means it's against ObamaCare and thinks we should let people purchase firearms without background checks. Wow. This hurricane sounds pretty awful. It really is. I've spoken to experts this week who feel the hurricane is a racist, sexist and homophobic. That's why here at MSNBC weather center. We're proposing they changed the name of the hurricane to hurricane maga-. Hurricane maga-. Yes. Or hurricane Trump or hurricane Jared lead? Even settle for hurricane Jeff Sessions. We just don't think hurricane Florence is a suitable name. I completely understand. And so do our viewers in an online poll ninety eight percent of MSNBC viewers blamed President Trump for the hurricane. With the remaining two percent mistakenly thinking they were filling out a form to be rescued from the hurricane. Sorry, folks won't be rescuing anyone here at MSNBC, but we can send you this make America socialist again, bumper sticker that's gonna look great on my Prius. You've got all kinds of hustle, like get the job done hustle and get the kids out the door hustle..

"She was cooking all that she was. I look, I had pack this big Pooh at dawn power. Now I'm cooking anybody. They walk down the street. My mom was altered new. This did not all have you eight. Yeah, my my dad grill daughter like he had these fish spot in the fridge, and he grew out that shit up and they'll those five, those fissures delicious. I don't know what happened knows fish. I don't know. He's a drive up the coast to get him and come back. So I don't know if he's still does that. I don't think so. But those fucking fish was amazing. But yeah, so I, I mean, I don't know. We'll see. I mean, if his heavy, I miss nothing we can do about it either way. You know. So we'll see what happens. So I just think is weird that people still that hurricanes named that the women do more damage. They do traditional women names, feminine names if you wanna call it that I don't, I don't, right. I'm sure there's probably better terms that I don't know yet, but you know, like just names that people associate with even incorrect. And this was named Florence. And so what happens is for some reason, this is so stupid with less people believe it prepare when storms made have named after a woman which doesn't, which is ridiculous yet at the men. Abe, I'd take that shit seriously. Yeah, which is which makes you think like because some people will say within just name them all after me, you know, just fuck it. People are stupid, don't fight it. We're trying to save lives. Patriarchy sucks, but name out storms dues and then people will just get fuck out of the way and I and I understand that. But I actually think they should name hurricanes at the things that everybody fears rather than just say, let's name after men. You know, last name out to stuff like hurricane last two seasons or two blood hurricanes. Do loan debt. Hurricane, Carl Lewis singing the national anthem. Hurricane Bank overdraft fees, home, hurricane credit, Kabale, arcane bills. Bill like the man you? No, not William. The hurricane bills bills. It's comment. Go get the fuck outta here. Come on. I just went like, that can happen. People start, I say, just Twitter's people start adding their own. So I say it hurricane, we need to talk come out. We need. Goud every. Hurricane hot comb come out. See some of these say hurricane Trump without like somebody's not gonna save everybody because there's half the country too stupid. Not that I don't wanna see them drown, Eric, what make my as move? Yeah, but why people would be like hurricane Trump staying? He gonna help rebuild my house when it's done, you know, like we need, we need to motivate everybody to move. Okay, we get everybody out. So just got to come up with terms that you know are gone scared shit out of anyone. Yeah. I mean, not as you got a specific target, you know you want to go out ain't shit. Nigga. We lot hurricane baby mama. Hurricane commitment. Hurricane Chow support data just come out on this same. We're trying to get everybody know hurricane me too. Right. That'd just get out of me and out, come on. So I don't know. It was. It was good half. Have fun. Say, hurricane grapes in potato salad, you know. Some people that my stay. But yet and also in the path of hurricane Florence is potentially of two at risk, nuclear power plants. So I don't know. I don't know what the at risk nuclear power plants. They're like at risk. Youth is like it does not have a parent is only known is that. Previous records of on onto reas Newt, nuclear outland. Like what does that mean? No, that nuclear power plan really hangs out with a bad crowd. I know unsupervised. Yeah, one with the same design as the Fukushima plant that that like had a meltdown during. I wanna to say that was soon NAMI though, but still, I mean. That'll sound good. So I don't know, man, hope everybody would be. Okay, man, you know, nuclear power plants. I'm good until they start talking about natural disasters and shit, right. Then you guys came across like this right. Yeah, following that disaster new federal regulation, regulators required US and clip plans to perform upgrades to better earthquakes and flooding at the Fukushima Japan. Explosion for their nuclear power plant. They had two reactors that exploded elite radiation follow in two thousand eleven..
