Hurricane Season Will Be Above Average, NOAA Warns

"Hurricane season is coming and federal forecasters are predicting that there will be between six and ten hurricanes in the Atlantic this year. That's above average Jerry. Bell is the lead Hurricane Forecaster at the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. The Twenty Twenty Atlantic. Hurricane season is expected to be busy one. Npr's Rebecca Hersher reports. If the forecast turns out to be correct. This will be the fifth year in a row with above average hurricane activity in the Atlantic. That's the most consecutive years ever recorded bell says we're expecting yet another above normal season and now is the time to make sure that you're getting prepared. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is asking state and local governments to consider issuing evacuation orders earlier than they would have in the past in order to give people more time to safely leave their homes while maintaining as much social distance as possible. Carlos CASTILLO OF FEMA says Americans in hurricane prone areas should also pack different supplies than they would have be prepared to take cleaning items with you like so panna tiger disinfecting wipes or general household cleaning supplies to disinfect surfaces. You may touch regularly. Fema is also urging people to stay with family or friends or in hotels rather than in shelters if they can forecaster Jerry. Bell says the main reason for the large number of storms in the forecast is phenomenon called the Atlantic multi. Takeo Oscillation basically the wind temperatures in the Atlantic have been really good for making strong hurricanes since about nineteen ninety five that will probably change in the next few years as normal climate fluctuations happen that's separate from manmade climate change but climate change is making the storms that do form more damaging for one thing bell says sea levels are rising sea levels mean more storm on Dacian as a hurricanes approaching and warmer air and water mean that hurricanes are more likely to drop catastrophic amounts of rain. When they make landfall think hurricane harvey in two thousand Seventeen or Hurricane Florence in twenty eighteen and he says rain and storm surge affect more people than they used to our coastlines. Were built up tremendously over the last several decades so that there's potentially many more millions of people in harm's way every time a hurricane threat together normal climate variability plus the effects of human caused climate change plus the pandemic add up to a potentially deadly summer and fall hurricane season officially begins on June first and runs until November first Rebecca Hersher NPR needs.

When Does Clark Howard Think The Next Recession Will Be?

"With us on the clark howard show hi tammy how're you doing. I'm fine. How are you great. Thank you tammy. How can i be service service to you today. I've been listening to you for for a long time and you were right on spot at the last recession and i wish i had told my house right before that one so now we're getting it fixed after hurricane florence and i'm wanting to sell it but i wanna make sure i do it before the next recession. When do you think that's going to be well. If i knew when the recession was actually going to be i would be the richest human on earth. I mean forget warrant. I would be so far past him so or bays so the thing is there are only guesses about kind of thing and if you look at where the markets are pricing it in it's about a one in three chance chance that the economic difficulties we're having right now will lead to a recession you know there are lots of times that will have a slowdown in the economy economy where let's say goes from fifth year to fourth or third or something like that but it doesn't mean going into reverse so we're in the phase right right now where we've been in fifth gear for awhile. I'm really most of the last nine years we've been fifth year. The ben some times that we've downshifted on shifted like there was a time in twenty fifteen where it looked like we might be headed into another recession and instead all it was was downshift and so this time is likely could be that <hes> but a recessions are inevitable and don't take the wrong lesson from the last one okay because there were unique factors in the great recession that caused is all the problems with real estate values and the massive unemployment and all that because when recessions come out of banking scandals they're far more severe and harder to cure than a regular normal was called demand based recession so ooh don't worry that if we do tip into recession it's not going to mean that the home you are fixing up and you want to sell is is suddenly going to collapse in value. You don't sell it before a recession might happen so you can't. You can't make your plans on that kind of idea. The time to sell your home is when you're ready to sell it and it sounded like what you said. Is your ready to be done with this home right so if that's the case then. Is there a pattern where you live what months are are generally the best to market a house for sale well. I'm in the wilmington north carolina area and <hes>. I'm actually over the real estate and right now wilmington north carolina. It's high demand because they don't have very many properties so i would say as soon as your house is dressed up and ready for the market. Is your so done with that house. I mean it's just you're done with it. As soon as you've got it ready. Go ahead and start interviewing agents and figure out who you wanna list with or if you decide after interviewing agents you wanna try to sell it yourself then get going with it because you asked me a question specifically about the economy but your situation shen doesn't really trend with worrying about the economy years is about the fact that you're you're so over that place you you wanna drive away from it and never have to be there again correct so that's some motivation for you to get it dressed dressed and ready to go and that's what i would be doing so if the market demand is strong in wilmington north carolina take advantage of that and besides the effects of the economy slowing is mortgage rates for the buyer are so much better than they'd been and so they have an extra motivation to want to buy your home gene joins us on

Fed Minutes, Retail Sales Lead Busy Week

Fed Minutes, Retail Sales Lead Busy Week

"This week brings the minutes from the Federal Reserve September meeting plus retail sales and data on the housing market joining us now from Washington with the details is Wall Street Journal reporter, Sharon, none. Sharon, let's start with the fed minutes. A lot happened last week with the president. Again, criticizing the fed over short-term interest rates that was after Wednesday's market selloff. But the data were getting this Wednesday won't reflect that news instead. It will give us some insight on the September meeting. That's where the fed said. The economy remains strong and penciled in a fourth rate hike for the end of this year and last month, the Fed's seemed pretty confident and seeing that plan through. Yeah, yeah, that's true. So in that meeting in September, the fed raised short-term interest rates by a quarter percentage point, and it was there was this really interesting dichotomy that kind of has kind of showed up recently. And that's that some fed officials say as long as employment keeps falling farther below the level that they project is consistent with stable prices, the fed will need to raise rates to prevent. At the economy from overheating, which is like a very standard perspective, right? But there's this other camp, which is really interesting. That argues that this is this is more radical if inflation doesn't appear to be exceleron beyond two percent. And we've seen hints that that's the case. Recently with recent inflation reports, the fed could stop raising rates after reaching a so called neutral setting. And then of course, there's another strand to all of this fed talk. You know, President Trump has kind of bashed the fed in recent days, arguing it shouldn't be raising rates the way currently has been, and this is pretty unprecedented right. Politics of usually been left out of the monetary policy realm. So fed policymakers, monetary policy makers could do what they feel like is necessary without congressional or presidential oversight essentially. So that's kind of what we're looking for further evidence in the feds reasoning for choosing to raise rates by an another quarter percentage point, right? And more experience of this kind of divide between fed officials whether or not we should keep raising rates or or pull back if inflation stops player. The way it had been in previous months. So let's turn to retail sales. That data is out on Monday. We've seen pretty strong results from major retailers with a few exceptions. What will you'll be looking for in this report? Yeah. So it's it's key to remember. Of course, that consumer spending is the key driver of the us economy. It represents about two-thirds of g. p. of our economic output and in August US, consumers kind of actually rained in their spending after a very strong spending growth that we saw in July, which I think is kind of reflected in those earnings reports. But still, I mean to put this into perspective, the overall weakness that we saw in August was largely due to a drop in auto sales. So you know, that may not necessarily say something as strong as if maybe we'd seen across the board spending declines. There's one interesting thing to add here though. One PNC economists that w spoke with said that hurricane Florence may actually mess up the spending data for September and a pretty interesting pattern going forward with purchases ahead of the storm. You know, maybe things like food and other supplies decline in sales in the immediate. Aftermath, right? And then and then gains again during the recovery phase when people are making purchases for repairs on the like. So this week also brings several housing reports. We have the housing market index on Tuesday than housing starts on Wednesday and existing home sales on Friday. Last week, we learned that housing mortgage rates are nearing five percent. What can this week's data tell us in that context about the health of the sector and where it's headed? Yeah, absolutely. The rising mortgage rates, you know, it's good in terms of showing that the fed sees that the economy is healthy, Right Math where we're raising rates, you know, that kind of feeds into the different interest rates that we see in different borrowing aspects of the economy, but it's bad in that we're seeing that mortgage rates combined with rising prices for homes. It's kind.

You're listening to the newsroom from the BBC World Service with me Emilio San Pedro. It's not yet a month since hurricane Florence at the east coast of the United States causing catastrophic damage in north and South Carolina. Now people in northern Florida are preparing for another huge storm hurricane Michael which is expected to pass over the north west of the state later on Wednesday. The Florida governor Rick Scott described it as highly dangerous and potentially life-threatening. Let me be clear. Hurricane Michael is a monstrous storm forecast gets keeps getting more dangerous. We're now just hours away from CNN packs again, hurricane Michael is coming to the Gulf Coast, and panhandle and impacts will start in just a few hours. The time to repairs right now. The storm is dangerous. If you don't follow a warnings from officials. This storm could kill you lose Fajardo BBC monitoring is in Florida. He's been telling me more about what the authorities. There are saying we've been hearing about officials starting of course, governor Rick Scott telling people in Florida to be very alert this storm they're expecting impact on Wednesday afternoon. Probably they are expecting it could even move into a category. Four storms were very dangerous storm, particularly they're worried about the possibility of storm surges of up to twelve feet in some parts, they could expect them as you say it's different from hurricane Florence. There's at least one sign of relief for Florida in the sense that it's supposed to advance quickly. What are the problems with Florence? And we've got major storms and have occurred recently in the US is the fact that they've been going slower than usual because of that grading even more prominence of flooding. Apparently, this one is expected to move relatively quickly through Floyd. So it could be. Very destructive because of the wind, but not so much of the sort of hanging around what other preparations of the authorities making nearly one hundred and twenty thousand people have been told to leave and in several counties in northwest, Florida. Some people are particularly worried because as several of these counties are in rural areas they are relatively far away from the main resort city of Miami. And orlando. Is what many people in the world now, Florida for these are more rural and more impoverished areas? One of the counties, which is under risk by this here again, apparently they're saying that they don't have enough shelters capable to withstand this degree of uric aims. So they're trying to make sure that people are are well prepared. Also, they're dealing with another issue. The fact that is the third consecutive year that Florida has been under threat of a major hurricane and people are worried that in some occasions, they could feel that they don't take the risks seriously as they should. So I guess I kind of fatigue because of this constant threat of hurricane. So they're trying to make sure that the people know that this is a very serious situation. Reese, the President Trump's administration has seen its fair share of high profile departures, not all apparently as amicable as this one though, we're all happy for you. In one

"hurricane florence" Discussed on KQED Radio

"They're always hurricanes. Let let why are you having hurricane pictures here? Hurricane Florence climate change. Okay. Well, first of all before we even get hurricanes. Have there been any fires in California this year? The Mendocino complex far was the largest fire in the history of California. That fire tornado was a half a mile across at the base and one thousand four hundred degrees hundred and sixty mile hundred and forty mile an hour winds and every year the record is broken here. Now the drought in the four corners region. I mean, I could go through the list, but let's just talk for a second about hurricane Florence. That's on the way, it is crossing part of the Atlantic Ocean. Where the temperature of the water is three and a half degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal. So it has intensified at a record or near record rate. It's up to a cat for they think it's going to get to category. Five. And so the number of hurricanes or cyclonic storms hurricanes typhoons cyclones around. They're all the same thing. They have different names notion basis. The absolute number doesn't increase, but the number of big ones increases dramatically. And one reason is as the water is warmer that convection energy drives. The wind speeds to much higher levels and the warming now goes down in the ninety percent of the heat trapping every day. The oceans, and it's now penetrating deeper than two thousand meters so hurricanes as they approach the land instead of turning up the cold water and short-circuiting the convection energy. When the water is hot all the way to the bottom. Then they just keep on building in strike. So that's that's one thing. Sea level is already higher. So the storm surges greater, and here's the other factor that you will see play out on the news. If the if the projections by the meteorologists are correct the normally the northern hemisphere Jetstream moves weather systems across the North American continent. But as we saw with hurricane Harvey last year in Houston, Texas, the jet stream has been getting much wavier and episodically disorganized. And so we get these periods where weather systems just are locked in place for multiple days in a row last year in in Harris County, Texas, Harvey. Which came a ra- much warmer waters. It stayed there for five days. And if you think in your mind about Niagara Falls, and how giant they are five hundred and nine days worth of the full flow of Niagara Falls. That's what was dumped and five days on Texas and Louisiana and in Harris County, it got up the five feet of rain, and they're talking now thirty inches predicted for parts of the Carolinas. Because again, if you look on the news, I mean every night on the TV news. I say this often is like a nature hikes through the book of revelation. And often the news media doesn't connect the dots. But people are saying, wow, this is unusual. And they're now predicting that this hurricane Florence is not only going to be a massive hurricane and drop an enormous amount of rain, but it's gonna stay there for days at a time and the southeastern quadrant extending over the ocean. As hurricane Harvey did last year. Continues to replenish the moisture in the storm. We got five percent more humidity in the in the atmosphere of the earth today than in nineteen eighty because we're disrupting the water cycle that's one of the basis of life by dramatically increasing the amount of water vapor coming off the ocean into the sky. So we get these rain bombs like the one after the fire in Santa Barbara last year. They got a rain bomb that led to the mudslide. So there are multiple factors underway at the same time. And we've only mentioned a few of them. But look at some point we have got to collectively say. We can't go on like this. The scientists predicted years ago what hurricane Florence the phenomena that hurricane Florence is today..

"This is something we should be aware of, what does it tell us about the path of a storm? So this is for people to visualize. Sometimes people you see a map that has a bunch of strings that are sort of predicting the potential paths of a storm. So those are all individual models that are predicting the path of the storm. There are a lot of models they are. You know, American models, European models. They are extremely long standing and sophisticated models. There are more rudimentary models, so there are a lot of resources out there. And so typically what forecasters will do is they kind of blend these together. They, they have their own sort of strategies about the different weight that might accord to one model versus another, but they will basically take that all all those different predictions and can sort of meld them into let they. Considered to be the most reliable forecast cone that they can come up with the so Arianna. Obviously, a lot of people are worried about hurricane Florence and anxiously watching the latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center in looking at these maps, especially for people who are taking a look for the first time. Do you have any other tips or sources you would recommend? So they're the National Hurricane center's has actually over the years, they keep increasing the the number of tools and maps and resources that you can look at on their websites. If you go to the National Hurricane website, which is NHCD, dot Noah. And, oh, AAA dot gov. Evair you will see the different storms or systems that they may be tracking. And then if you click on a particular storm like hurricane Florence, you will see on there a number of different types of maps that you can look at. So there's not only the forecast cone, which is, you know the one of the most common ones, but there are, for instance, maps that show when you can expect. At what time or what? What day you can expect to. I experienced tropical storm force winds, or there may be others that show what are the areas that could be potentially affected by flash floods or what are the potential rainfall totals. So those are all tools that folks can look at to make determination about what is the risk that they're running in their particular area and and also, you know, you should look at the advisories themselves statements put out every several hours by the Hurricane Center, which tell people if you're living in this particular area or this stretch of coast, you're going to be facing this kind of threat versus another part of the coast where you might experience another type of threat.

"With hurricane Florence on a path toward the east coast. Many are watching the latest forecast maps to track the storm, but that can prove a bit confusing for those trying to make sense of the National Hurricane center's forecast maps for the first time joining us now via Skype from Miami with some chips is Wall Street Journal, reporter, Arjan, Campo Flores Ari on first. Let's talk about how much technology has changed in tracking hurricanes and how it impacts the picture. So to speak of what we're actually looking at when we take a look at these maps. Sure. So there have been significant improvements in the technology that's available to forecasters as they prepare these forecasts. The satellites that they're using are much more sophisticated more powerful, more precise, some of the devices that they use. The actually dispatch into storms from aircraft are also more sophisticated the rock computing power that they use to run models. His his much more powerful than it was decades ago. So all of that has allowed forecasters to become steadily more precise in how they they, they forecast, for instance, the path of a hurricane. So what we see when we look at the the so-called forecast cone, which is that map, it shows a steadily widening sort of blob that seeks to capture the potential path of a storm that has steadily narrowed over the years. And so that obviously has significant impacts for folks who are in the cones in terms of the decisions that they make us to whether or not they should back. You wait or stamp place or what measures they should take when it comes to the cone. You also point out that a lot of people mistake it for the entire area that'll be impacted by the storm. And that's not actually what it's showing us. Can you explain a little bit more about what the cone on the forecast map is showing us? Yeah, sure. So the way that they derive the cone is it's basically. Accession of circles and those circles have varying radii and the way that they they calculated is they're trying to predict where the center of a storm will pass and they, they use those models that are predicting the pats combined with the records the previous years of of errors in forecasting to derive a particular radius for a circle. And so that's how they're calculating it and they'd they make the radio so that there is a two-thirds probability that the center of the storm will actually pass through the cone. But obviously that means that there is a one in three chance that the storm will not pass within the gone. We'll actually be outside of it. And so that's what people need to keep in mind that this is a, this is all about likelihood and probability sort of running models, but the affected areas can be far out. Side of the cone. You look in Ari on something else you point out is this so called spaghetti plot without getting too technical..
