Sandy: The Largest Storm To Hit The US?

28 10 2012

Large waves generated by Hurricane Sandy crash into Jeanette’s Pier in Nags Head, N.C., Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 as the storm moves up the east coast. Hurricane Sandy, upgraded again Saturday just hours after forecasters said it had weakened to a tropical storm, was barreling north from the Caribbean and was expected to make landfall early Tuesday near the Delaware coast, then hit two winter weather systems as it moves inland, creating a hybrid monster storm.

Hurricane Sandy had killed at least 66 people in the Caribbean islands, including 51 in Haiti.

Forecasters said that Sandy is likely to make U.S. landfall on Monday night between Delaware and the New York/New Jersey area.

Sandy will meet two other winter storms and becomes a rare, hybrid “super storm” created by an Arctic jet stream wrapping itself around a tropical storm.

The monstrous Hurricane Sandy is going to be a very big storm when it hit the United States.

Officials warned millions of people in coastal areas to get out of the way.

It will effect the third of the country from the East Coast to the Great Lakes and 50 to 60 millions of people with heavy of rains, high winds and heavy snow. 

Sandy could cause lots of damage because it could hit big cities like Boston, New York, Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.

This is a disaster.

Tropical Storm Isaac brought heavy rains to Dominican Republic and Haiti on Friday.

It bore down on Haiti’s southern peninsula early Saturday.

It may cause deadly flash floods and mudslides in Haiti because so much of the country is deforested.

11 straight days of southwest monsoon rains had flooded Manila and nearby provinces.

Motorists and passengers are trapped in the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) as heavy rains continue in Valenzuela City, Metro Manila August 7, 2012. Deadly torrential rains submerged much of the Philippine capital and surrounding areas on Tuesday, forcing nearly 270,000 people to flee their homes with more flooding expected in the north of the country as a tropical storm passes through the region, officials said.

So far, at least 64 people were killed by the flood and landslides and  850,000 people were displaced.

Half of Manila was sank by floods as high as three meters.

This is a disaster!

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.

Hurricane Beatriz Hits Mexico – Photos

21 06 2011

Hurricane Beatriz hit Mexico’s Pacific coast on Tuesday.

It is a Category 1 hurricane.

The popular tourist ports of Acapulco and Manzanillo were closed ahead of the hurricane’s arrival.

There are hurricane warnings along the Mexican coast from Lazaro Cardenas northwestward to Cabo Corrientes. 

The Mexican government said the coastal states of Guerrero, Michoacan, Colima and Jalisco should prepare for 10- to 13-foot (3- to 4-meter) waves and 6 to 12 inches of rain.

A storm surge was expected to cause coastal flooding in the hurricane warning area.

Storm surge happens when the hurricane caused the sea to rise up higher than the ordinary sea level.

It can cause lots of damages especially if it happens during the high tide.

Hurricane Beatriz is the second hurricane of the 2011 Pacific season.

The first was Hurricane Adrian, which formed earlier this month.

This is a disaster as the heavy rains can cause floods and strong winds can damage buildings as well as causing very high waves.
