Nebraska Flooding West Point Bemer
NOAA warns unprecedented flooding until JULY. 200 MILLION people at risk.

Well, I was going to blame the great minds who think they can control and "own" the weather by 2025, but I heard this morning 64 people were killed in lightning strikes yesterday in India. India and Pakistan had massive dust storm along with that. 64 people in one day being electrocuted? I think God is unleashing some fury.
As for us, the fun begins tonight with torrential downpours, 60 mph winds and possible lightening. Is this the rebuttal to Easter, which is the anniversary of the crucifixion?
And some nutjob went into St. Patricks Cathedral in NYC with gasoline cans and a lighter, he wanted to recreate a Notre Dame type of thing. Some astute security and policemen put a stop to it. He told the cops that he was just trying to take a shortcut thru the church to get to Madison Avenue where his car was parked and that he was out of gas. The cop went with him to his car and found he had a full tank, so he kinda knew what the man was up to.
it's just so sick.....

This week Big Asteroid Exercise by NASA, FEMA and International Partners.
While headlines routinely report on "close shaves" and "near-misses" when near-Earth objects (NEOs) such as asteroids or comets pass relatively close to Earth, the real work of preparing for the possibility of a NEO impact with Earth goes on mostly out of the public eye.
For more than 20 years, NASA and its international partners have been scanning the skies for NEOs, which are asteroids and comets that orbit the Sun and come within 30 million miles (50 million kilometers) of Earth's orbit. International groups, such as NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO), the European Space Agency's Space Situational Awareness-NEO Segment and the International Asteroid Warning Network (IAWN) have made better communication of the hazards posed by NEOs a top priority.
In the spirit of better communication, next week at the 2019 Planetary Defense Conference, NASA's PDCO and other U.S. agencies and space science institutions, along with international partners, will participate in a "tabletop exercise" that will play out a realistic - but fictional - scenario for an asteroid on an impact trajectory with Earth.
The scenario begins with the fictional premise that on March 26, astronomers "discovered" a NEO they consider potentially hazardous to Earth. After a "few months" of tracking, observers predict that this NEO - dubbed 2019 PDC - poses a 1 in 100 chance of impact with Earth in 2027 (in real life, the international community has decided that a 1 in 100 chance of impact is the threshold for action). Participants in this exercise will discuss potential preparations for asteroid reconnaissance and deflection missions and planning for mitigation of a potential impact's effects.

California is going to get hammered. In about 10 days out or slightly less, one of the mets reported there will be a hurricane in the Eastern Pacific, first one of the season named Alvin. Hawaii needs to be on the lookout.
You can see how much excess rainfall has occurred across the entire country, they have only been able to plant about 25% of the corn crops in the midwest.
Mississippi River flooding has been ongoing for three months or longer in some locations, making it the longest-lasting flood there since the Great Flood of 1927, the worst flood in modern history on the lower Mississippi River.
Closure of the Mississippi to shipping would cost the economy $295 million per day, said Gary LaGrange, executive director of the Port of New Orleans, during the great flood of 2011
Failure of the ORCS and the resulting loss of barge shipping that might result could well trigger a global food emergency. The U.S. is one of the world’s largest exporters of grain, and 60% of that grain is transported to market by barges travelling on the Lower Mississippi River

Alvin for the west coast will set it sights on Hawaii.
East Coast - Andrea will NOT be going over Bermuda per well informed sources, it will go east of that. Most the models have it going out to sea, except one model has it hitting Montauk.

Heat alert for North Carolina. It'll be hotter there than in Miami!

Ohio has been getting jacked up. We had a little water in our basement after a 3 hour power outage Tuesday night. Tore all the carpet up and everything will be ok. Hope everyone is doing well.
I keep track of the weather in the Colorado mountains, looks like it is still winter there. Atleast the drought is over, for now. Snowpack was like almost 400% of median for this time of year in some ranges!
nebish - 5/31/2019 at 12:01 AM
I mean snow water equivalent, not snow pack.
How is everyone in CA with that water situation?

1st hurricane of the season may be coming soooon. How soon? June 12-13. It would be a Gulf of Mexico storm, eclipse the panhandle then come up north grazing DC/Delmarva as a Cat 1 and either gong by Long Island or I will be screaming Whippin' Post.
It is called 91L investigation. The NHC says it has a 50 % chance of development into a storm in the next few days, but right now it would be down of Campeche, Mexico. This is way to early in the season for this stuff.
gina - 6/28/2019 at 10:10 PM
Yes it is hot, even up here. Need a little diversion? July 2nd, full solar eclipse over South America.
gina - 7/7/2019 at 08:34 PM
even worse but due to climate change:
Find your state and area, read it and weep.
We need 46 foot sea walls to deal with storm surges of 40 feet of water. Who will foot the bill? Taxpayers.
Remarks: You can't put seawalls around Miami or South Beach, so are they just to remain sitting ducks? Can't put them in the Hamptons either. Nobody says anything because you can't relocate 100 million people which is probably what we have on the east coast. It is just not good.

As most of you know, Reed Timmer is a storm chaser, extreme weather watcher, he's already down there. Look at his video, water already coming in. Inundation will happen. Island Road and Hwy 665.
UPDATE: storm surge now making many roads south of Hwy 665 impassable including Island Rd in Terrebonne Parish, LA well ahead of Tropical Storm #Barry @breakingweather
Lake Ponchartrain already coming over Lake Shore Drive, New Orleans.
The nice levy's that the army built for the city are able to handle a 20 foot storm surge, 19 feet are expected.
Here's the monster pulsating with it's impending misery to launch on the people of Louisiana.

If it is already too effin late for anybody to get out of there, these are shelters open now.
3,000 national guard troops already in place.
School parking lots available for cars to save them from flood damage.
New Orleans residents wonder if they should evacuate, I cannot believe that.
Gas stations already running out of gas. But Gas buddy has activated an app to help people find gas.
Restaurants are using hashtag Barry Eats to help people find food and where to eat/what's open in Lafayette.
Shelters open across Louisiana call 211.
2-1-1 has been activated to have the most up to date information about shelter locations and being able to tell people exactly where the shelter closest to them will be.”
The Governor says the flooding will effect the whole state because they are already AT flood stage.
