21 Killed By Tropical Storm Manuel And Hurricane Ingrid

16 09 2013

 

At least 21 people were killed in Mexico after a hurricane and a tropical storm strikes the opposite sides of Mexico, the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific. 

Tropical Storm Manuel drenched Mexico’s southwestern Pacific shoulder Sunday while Hurricane Ingrid closed in on the country’s Gulf coast, causing heavy rains and landslides.

Civil Protection Coordinator Luis Felipe Puente said 14 people died in Guerrero, three in Hidalgo, three in Puebla and one in Oaxaca due to the disaster.

Tropical Storm Manuel, with a maximum sustained winds of about 35 mph (55 kph) was moving to the northwest at 8 mph (13 kph) late Sunday, 70 miles (110 kilometers) northwest of Manzanillo.

Manuel was expected to bring 10 to 15 inches of rain over parts of Guerrero and Michoacan state, with maximums of 25 inches in some isolated areas.

Meanwhile Hurricane Ingrid had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph) late Sunday and was centered about 110 miles (175 kilometers) northeast of the port city of Tampico as it moved west-northwest at 6 mph (9 kph). 

It is expected to make a landfall by Monday morning, most likely along Tamaulipas state’s lightly populated coast north of Tampico.

Anyway, the storm system from the outer bands of Ingrid was already dumping heavy rains in parts of Mexico.

A hurricane warning was in effect from Cabo Rojo to La Pesca.

The hurricane can bring dangerous storm surge, destructive waves and heavy rains that can cause flash floods and landslides.

Yahoo! News said that more than 1,000 homes in Veracruz state had been affected by the storm to varying degrees and 20 highways and 12 bridges were damaged by the disaster.

(Update: Hurricane Isaac In N. Orleans On Katrina’s 7th Anniversary – Photos)

Hurricane Isaac crashed ashore in southeast Louisiana on Tuesday, bringing high winds and heavy rain.

Nearly 70,000 people in Louisiana were without electricity.

On Tuesday, some parts of Louisiana’s low-lying Plaquemines Parish were already flooded.

The effects of the large, slow moving storm have already been felt along the coast lines of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Large storm surge caused flood in Louisiana and winds gusted to 99.7793 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in New Orleans.

On Tuesday morning, engineers closed the new floodgate at Lake Borgne, east of New Orleans, for the first time.

It is largest storm-surge barrier in the world.

Hurricane Isaac is predicted to hit New Orleans almost exactly seven years after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans on August 29, 2005 killing more than 1,800 people and causing billions of dollars of damage.

People were urged to leave the low-lying areas in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana because the hurricane could flood towns and cities in, with a storm surge of up to 12 feet high!

Before turning into a hurricane, Tropical Storm Issac had already killed at least 23 people in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

The center of its projected path took Isaac directly toward New Orleans on Wednesday, but hurricane warnings extended across some 330 miles from Morgan City, La., to Destin, Fla. It could become the first hurricane to hit the Gulf Coast since 2008. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)

Tropical Storm Isaac hit the Caribbean and it strengthened on Friday as its lashing rains took aim at Haiti.

It is not expected to become a hurricane until it reach the Gulf of Mexico early next week.

Forecasters said Isaac would hit Cuba and the southern tip of Florida before making landfall anywhere from the Florida Panhandle in the northwestern part of the state to Alabama and as far west as New Orleans.

It caused flood, sinkholes, and overflowing rivers in central and northern Florida.

Anclote River rised from nine feet before the storm to major flood level of 27 feet on Tuesday.

Roads were closed because they were flooded.

Thousands of people had to move out from their flooded houses.

Tropical Storm Debby is moving slowly to the Florida coast on Sunday, June 24. 

This brings strong winds and waves that forced the closure of about a quarter of offshore oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico.

Several Alabama beaches were closed due to rough surf.

According to an emergency management official, earlier on Sunday, it caused tornadoes that killed a woman, severely injured a child and wrecked homes in central Florida in rural Highlands County.

The National Hurricane Center maintained a storm warning for the Mississippi-Alabama border, extended warnings for Florida’s northwest coast to Englewood, and discontinued warnings for the Louisiana coast.

Residents were warned to expect storm conditions within 36 hours.

This is a disaster.
