On Tuesday, the remnants of Hurricane Florence brought heavy rain and gusts of 112 km per hour (70 miles/hour) to the US state of Massachusetts.

Florence originated from a tropical wave over Western Africa in late August. On September 1, the National Hurricane Center assigned the name Florence to the system. Over the next two weeks, favorable conditions allowed the system to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Last Friday, Florence entered the shore of North Carolina, United States. Several days since severe rainfall has occurred in the area. Flooding was ongoing with approximately 24 inches of water being accumulated in Wilmington, North Carolina, according to the official weather data. The hurricane has been responsible for at least 34 deaths in three states so far, with 25 deaths in North Carolina.

Tens of thousands of homes were damaged, with 900 thousand homes without power at the early stages of the hurricane.

Floodwaters were continuing to rise and fill more streets and homes through the area. Wilmington, a town with 120 thousand residents, was isolated by water, with only one road being intermittently available for food supply. Officials were giving away free food to the residents.

According to the official data provided by United States, in the Wilmington area, the rainfall reached a maximum of ten inches on Friday. The rainfall has receded, however, water continued to accumulate and reached 24 inches on Sunday. This figure has continued to be steady for another day til Monday. The hurricane was observed to have wind speed up to 200km/h, a figure that has decreased since the Friday as it hit the land and was unable to maintain its high speed. The landfall of the hurricane was also observed from the International Space Station on Friday.

Officials and volunteers from other states have provided rescue services to the area, including road closures, rescue operations on helicopters and boats in the areas which were hit the most. As it can be clearly seen from the images, it was impossible to move in the area by car. An incident has been reported when a mother was driving and holding her young son, however, as she was unable to hold the grip, the son was swept away by the water flow and has died. Officials warned residents to stay away from flooded areas and to stay safe.

Friday, August 10, 2018

On Wednesday, the New South Wales, Australia Department of Primary Industries (DPI) reported fifteen percent of New South Wales, Australia (NSW) was in “intense drought”, and the rest of the state “in drought” or “drought-affected”. Farmers were reportedly running out of food for cattle and had to make difficult decisions about the collection times for their crops; food for cattle became harder to get, and more expensive.

The report from DPI indicated “up to 48% of the state as Drought Affected, 37% in Drought and 15% in Intense Drought”. The areas of intense drought included “parts of Western, North West, Central West, Central Tablelands, South East, Hunter, Greater Sydney and Northern Tablelands LLS regions”, according to the report. The drought indicator was based on agronomic data, remote sensing, and field reports, including soil moisture and pasture conditions.

The report from DPI named “the southern alpine zone, the greater Hilltops (Young) region and parts of the south and north coast” as areas with better conditions.

Furthermore, according to ABC (the Australian Broadcasting Corporation), the chair of the Australian Fodder Industry Association, Frank McRae, said many farmers in NSW had barely any food for their cattle. He said, “There’s pretty much virtually nothing in NSW and supplies are rapidly drying up in southern Victoria [state bordering NSW on the south] […] You have to go back to 1981–1982 to see a drought this widespread and so severe.”

The BBC reported Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull saying some farmers bought hay for animal feed for as much as AUP 10,000 per truckload.

NSW Primary Industries Minister Niall Blair remarked many people were hoping for rain to come and farmers were needed to make difficult decisions about the best viable time for crops collection. He said, “This is tough, there isn’t a person in the state that isn’t hoping to see some rain for our farmers and regional communities […] Producers are now faced with some very difficult decisions on whether to graze sown crops or rely on potential rainfall in the next two months in order to increase yield production.”

According to ABC, Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) meteorologist Jane Golding said these conditions were unlike previously observed climatic conditions in NSW with rain in June, July and August. He said, “This year we haven’t really seen either of those and last year as well we didn’t really see too much of the either of those rain-bearing systems making their way into NSW […] It is unusually dry and also unusually warm which exacerbates the problems, so the warm temperatures dry out the soils even more.”

According to BBC, Queensland, north of NSW, was also experiencing dry conditions, as well as parts of South Australia and Victoria. The report from DPI mentioned last autumn’s failed growing season.

About the forecast conditions and risks, the report from DPI said dry and warm conditions were “likely” to continue in the next three months, with an El Niño 50% likely in NSW in spring, which would mean depressed rainfall. The Australian forecasting services have an El Niño Watch on the region according to the report.

Wednesday, nearly a quarter of New South Wales, Australia (NSW) was classified as being in “intense drought”, the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) reported. The rest of the state was reportedly “in drought” or “drought-affected”. Farmers were running out of food for cattle and had to make difficult decisions about the collection times for their crops. Food for cattle became harder to get, and more expensive.

The report from DPI indicated “up to 48% of the state as Drought Affected, 37% in Drought and 15% in Intense Drought”. The areas of intense drought included “parts of Western, North West, Central West, Central Tablelands, South East, Hunter, Greater Sydney and Northern Tablelands LLS regions”, according to the report. The drought indicator was based on the data about agronomic data, satellite imagery, as well as farmers’ surveys which include reports of soil moisture and pasture conditions.

The report from DPI named “the southern alpine zone, the greater Hilltops (Young) region and parts of the south and north coast” as areas which experienced better conditions.

Furthermore, according to ABC (the Australian Broadcasting Corporation), the Chair of the Australian Fodder Industry Association, Frank McRae, said many farmers in NSW had barely any food for their cattle. He said, “There’s pretty much virtually nothing in NSW and supplies are rapidly drying up in southern Victoria. You have to go back to 1981-1982 to see a drought this widespread and so severe.”

The BBC reported Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull saying that some farmers had spent “up to A$10,000 per truckload of hay” to feed their animals.

According to ABC, NSW Primary Industries Minister Niall Blair remarked that many people were hoping for rain to come and farmers were needed to make difficult decisions about the best viable time for crops collection. He said, “This is tough, there isn’t a person in the state that isn’t hoping to see some rain for our farmers and regional communities. Producers are now faced with some very difficult decisions on whether to graze sown crops or rely on potential rainfall in the next two months in order to increase yield production.”

According to ABC, Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) meteorologist Jane Golding said these conditions unlike previously observed climatic conditions in NSW with rain in June, July and August. He said, “This year we haven’t really seen either of those [rain in June, July and August – WN] and last year as well we didn’t really see too much of the either of those rain-bearing systems making their way into NSW. It is unusually dry and also unusually warm which exacerbates the problems, so the warm temperatures dry out the soils even more.”

According to BBC, Queensland was also experiencing dry conditions, as well as parts of South Australia and Victoria. The report from DPI included a mention of last autumn’s dry conditions, which may have contributed to the current drought. July 30, NSW government had provided AUD 0.5M for emergency drought relief, with the total provided support exceeding AUD 1M.

About the forecast conditions and risks, the report from DPI said dry and warm conditions were “highly likely” to continue in the next three months, with a 50% chance of El Nino developing in NSW in spring, which would increase rainfall. The Australian forecasting services have the region on an El Niño Watch, according to the report.

“Nationally, it was the driest July since 2002 and below average for most of southern Australia.”

“Rainfall was the lowest on record for July in parts of northern inland and west slopes of New South Wales, across the border into the eastern Pastoral region of South Australia and patches in the Goldfields of Western Australia.”

“Despite the month overall being very dry, there were areas that received above average rainfall in southwest Western Australia, the northeast coast of the Top End, far north coast of Queensland and most of Tasmania.”

An earthquake, focused off the south-east coast of Vanuatu, struck at 11:26 AM Australian Eastern Standard Time. According to the U.S. Geological Survey the earthquake was first measured as a 7.6 on the Richter scale of magnitude, however after initial testing it was reduced to a 7.2 with a lessened level of potential damage. The aftershock following the initial earthquake was measured at 5.4 magnitude, with no civilian casualties for either quake.

Though the quake was 10 kilometres underwater and approximately 535 kilometres off the coast of Vanuatu, the initial quake triggered the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center to invoke a preliminary local tsunami warning (specifically in New Caledonia, coastal areas of Vanuatu and Fiji). The warning was withdrawn as the seismic activity lessened, and authorities were able to evaluate the damage.

The South Pacific Ocean region has experienced multiple earthquakes and seismic activity over the past year, with Vanuatu in an area known as the ‘Ring of Fire’ due to its position over fault lines circling the Pacific Basin. These fault lines influence the frequency of tectonic movement, tremors, earthquakes and volcanic activity. This earthquake was the second of its magnitude to hit the area in 2016, with a 7.0 magnitude quake hitting offshore in April. Neither earthquake caused large-scale damage or civilian casualties.

News reports on Monday indicated authorities in Palestine, Texas identified a sixth victim following flash flooding late last week. Giovani Olivas, 30, was reportedly swept away in the flood.

In under an hour late Friday evening, Palestine was deluged by seven inches of rain, causing residents of one neighborhood to flee to their rooftops. Over 30 buildings, included many homes, in the city suffered significant damage.

Lenda Asberry, 64, a retired school teacher, and her four great grandchildren also drowned during the flood. Onlookers reported the woman was attempting to get the children to safety when they were swept away. Asberry’s daughter told reporters water levels were up to the woman’s neck while attempting to save the children.

One resident of the area told reporters “[her] furniture was floating around” inside her home, forcing her to climb atop her couch to seek safety.

Dark skies blanketed the nearby city of Tyler hours before the storm struck. At least one government office located in the Palestine area was closed on Monday and was slated to remain closed on Tuesday due to water damage. A tornado also ravaged much of nearby Lindale, Texas, resulting in severe damage of at least one residence. The storm system moved up along the US eastern seaboard over the weekend.
