Faster than Harvey and bigger than Andrew, Irma is unlike any storm Florida has ever seen

Faster than Harvey and bigger than Andrew, Irma is unlike any storm Florida has ever seen | 08 Sept 2017 | Hurricane Irma continued its deadly sweep through the Caribbean on Friday as residents of Florida waited with frazzled nerves and growing fears over just how bad the storm will be. The Category 4 5 hurricane, with a footprint as big as Texas, is expected to make landfall early Sunday and blow through central Florida with 150-mph winds, reaching Georgia by Monday morning..."All Floridians should be prepared to evacuate soon," Gov. Rick Scott said. "Remember Hurricane Andrew [in 1992] was one of the worst storms in the history of Florida. Irma is more devastating on its current path.… This is a catastrophic storm that our state has never seen." Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine called it a "nuclear storm." The National Weather Service in Key West tweeted in capital letters: "This is as real as it gets. Nowhere in the Florida Keys will be safe. You still have time to evacuate." At dusk Friday, downtown Miami was all but empty except for police.

US military readies for Hurricane Irma | 08 Sept 2017 | The US military was mobilizing thousands of troops and deploying several large ships Friday to aid with evacuations and humanitarian relief from Hurricane Irma, as the Air Force removed scores of planes from the region. The governors of Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and Florida have together activated nearly 14,000 National Guard personnel to support search-and-rescue missions and evacuations, a Pentagon statement read. Meanwhile, the USS Kearsarge and the USS Oak Hill -- an amphibious assault ship and a dock landing ship -- are being sent to aid in relief efforts.

At least 60 dead, over 200 injured after magnitude-8.1 earthquake rocks Mexico

At least 60 dead, over 200 injured after magnitude-8.1 earthquake rocks Mexico | 08 Sept 2017 | At least 60 people were killed after a magnitude-8.1 earthquake rocked Mexico late Thursday night, leveling buildings in southern Mexico, triggering tsunami warnings in several countries and causing people to flee into the street. Buildings swayed and lights went out in Mexico City, some 650 miles from the epicenter. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto called it the strongest quake the country has seen in a century. The U.S. Geological Survey measured it at 8.1 magnitude, though initial reports said 8.2.

Hurricane Irma is forecast to hit the Florida Keys as a Category 5 storm.

Hurricane Irma Barrels Toward U.S., Threatening to Engulf Florida

Hurricane Irma Barrels Toward U.S., Threatening to Engulf Florida | 08 Sept 2017 | As Hurricane Irma threatened to engulf virtually the entire state of Florida in deadly winds, driving rain and surging seas, the largest evacuation in the state's history saw hundreds of thousands of people scrambling into crowded county shelters and jamming highways as they fled north from the storm. With the clock ticking, some counties issued curfews for Saturday, and more shelters were opened to absorb the crush of people seeking cover from one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit Florida. Brock Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, described Hurricane Irma as "a threat that is going to devastate the United States, either Florida or some of the southeastern states."

Trump signs $15 billion Harvey relief, debt ceiling package

Trump signs $15 billion Harvey relief, debt ceiling package | 08 Sept 2017 | President Trump on Friday signed a $15 billion Hurricane Harvey relief bill that includes a short-term suspension of the debt ceiling and funding to keep the government running for the next three months. Earlier Friday, the package passed in the House of Representatives by a 316-90 vote, with all opposing votes coming from Republicans [Koch-owned swamp scum]. Congress moved with uncharacteristic speed on the bill to avert several looming crises -- the prospect of not only triggering a government shutdown, but hitting the debt limit as the federal government burns through cash it needs to respond to both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma which is barreling into Florida.

Hurricane Jose strengthens to 'extremely dangerous' Category 4

Hurricane Jose strengthens to 'extremely dangerous' Category 4 --The eye of Irma passed over Barbuda, a tiny Caribbean island of about 1,800 residents, on Wednesday, damaging about 95% of the buildings on the island, Prime Minister Gaston Browne said. | 08 Sept 2017 | Hurricane Jose strengthened to an "extremely dangerous" Category 4 storm Friday, with maximum sustained winds near 150 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm was about 335 miles east-southeast of the Northern Leeward Islands at 5 p.m. ET Friday, moving west-northwest at 17 mph, the National Hurricane Center said. A hurricane warning was put into effect Thursday for Barbuda and Anguilla, Saint Martin and Saint Barthelemy. A hurricane watch remained in effect for Antigua.

Hurricane Irma is size of Texas, shows up on earthquake monitors

Hurricane Irma is size of Texas, shows up on earthquake monitors | 06 Sept 2017 | Hurricane Irma intensified into a monster storm in the Atlantic Tuesday, with sustained winds of 185 mph and gusts of 218 mph. The storm's Atlantic wind speeds are behind only 1980's Hurricane Allen, which topped off at 190 mph. The scale of Hurricane Irma, which has grown to the size of Texas, is seen in an illustration.

Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point and St. Lucie nuclear power plants lie in the projected path of 185mph Irma

Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point and St. Lucie nuclear power plants lie in the projected path of 185mph Irma --Officials confident that reactors at two nuclear plants in Florida will stand firm as the deadly hurricane heads for landfall | 07 Sept 2017 | Nuclear power bosses are ready to shut down the reactors of two plants which lie in the path of Hurricane Irma. Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point and St. Lucie plants...are under threat. Spokesman Peter Robbins said: 'Based on the current track, we would expect severe weather in Florida starting Saturday, meaning we would potentially shut down before that point.' It can take more than 24 hours to shut down a reactor, so the decision will have to be made well in advance. When nuclear reactors get shut down they have to be cooled. If they are not, as in the case of the Fukushima disaster in 2011 when a tsunami disabled emergency generators, there can be nuclear meltdowns, hydrogen-air explosions and the release of radioactive material.

Georgia governor issues mandatory evacuations for areas east of I-95

Georgia governor issues mandatory evacuations for areas east of I-95 | 07 Sept 2017 | Following a recommendation from Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) officials and local Emergency Management Agencies, Gov. Nathan Deal is expanding his emergency declaration to include 24 additional counties, with a total of 30 counties now included in a state of emergency. Deal also issued a mandatory evacuation order for all areas east of I-95, all of Chatham County and some areas west of I-95 that could be impacted by the potential storm surge from Hurricane Irma. The executive order also authorized up to 5,000 Georgia National Guard members to be on state active duty to support Hurricane Irma response and recovery.

Hurricane Irma has entered a class all its own

Hurricane Irma has entered a class all its own | 06 Sept 2017 | Irma is one of the strongest hurricanes to ever move across the Atlantic basin. It is coming on the heels of Harvey, the first category 4 storm to reach the United States mainland since Charley hit Florida in 2004. Since Harvey and Irma were both major hurricanes, it's tempting to make comparisons. Some of these are valid, others not so much. Irma really has entered a class of its own, with an intensity that is quite rare...Harvey's minimum atmospheric pressure of 938 millibars was typically low for a hurricane, but Irma's low of 914 millibars [!] put it in the top 10 lowest in the Atlantic and actually the lowest in the area of the Atlantic it is moving through (outside of the western Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico). Irma has already set many records as of Wednesday morning; perhaps there are more to come. The winds of 185 miles per hour ties for the second-strongest winds of all time in Atlantic hurricanes.

Hurricane Irma slams Caribbean islands as Category 5 storm, Puerto Rico braces for impacts

Hurricane Irma slams Caribbean islands as Category 5 storm, Puerto Rico braces for impacts --Florida Gov. Rick Scott says storm is 'bigger, faster and stronger than' last Category 5 to hit US | 06 Sept 2017 | Hurricane Irma roared into the Caribbean Wednesday, passing over the islands of Saint Martin and Barbuda with 185 mph winds as the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane in recorded history which Florida's governor warned was "stronger" than the last Category 5 storm to hit the U.S...The National Weather Service said Puerto Rico had not seen a hurricane of Irma's magnitude since Hurricane San Felipe in 1928, which killed a total of 2,748 people in Guadeloupe, Puerto Rico and Florida. While the impacts of Irma on the U.S. mainland are still to be determined, Florida Gov. Rick Scott activated 1,000 members of the Florida National Guard to be deployed across the state, and 7,000 National Guard members were to report for duty Friday when the storm could be approaching the area. "The storm is bigger, faster, and stronger than Hurricane Andrew," Scott said Wednesday, referring to the last Category 5 storm to hit the U.S in 1992. He warned Irma may bring "significant storm surge" to the state not seen during Andrew.

Trump strikes 'deal' with Dems on Harvey aid and debt limit, over Ryan’s objections

Trump strikes 'deal' with Dems on Harvey aid and debt limit, over Ryan’s objections | 06 Sept 2017 | President Trump struck a deal Wednesday with Democratic leaders to raise the federal debt ceiling and fund the government for the next three months while also providing Hurricane Harvey relief money -- hours after House Speaker [swamp rat] Paul Ryan blasted such a plan as "unworkable" and "disgraceful." The president, meeting with congressional leaders from both parties, effectively brushed off calls from GOP leaders for a longer-term plan. Those lawmakers had pushed first for an 18-month debt-limit hike and then floated a six-month plan, Fox News is told -- but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., held firm on calls for a three-month deal. Trump agreed. The House on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved an initial $8 billion in funding for Harvey relief, on a 419-3 vote.
