Northeast Storm Undergoes Bombogenesis, Bringing 70+ MPH Gusts, Over 200 Reports of Wind Damage, Flooding

Oct. 30, 2017

snip video   Bombogenesis=weather bomb

"An intense storm continues to bring gusty winds to the Northeast, but will wind down Monday night.
Winds gusting over 70 mph have downed trees and knocked out power in New England.
Some rivers will remain in flood into Tuesday or Wednesday.
This storm received a boost of moisture and energy from an ex-tropical storm.
A powerful Northeast storm rapidly intensified Sunday night into early Monday, bringing damaging winds downing trees and triggering over a million power outages, as well as flooding rainfall from New England to New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Winds in parts of New England, mainly near the coast and in mountain locations, gusted over 70 mph early Monday morning, including a gust to 93 mph at Mashpee, Massachusetts, 115 mph atop Mt. Mansfield, Vermont, and 133 mph at the Mount Washington Observatory in New Hampshire. 

As of early Monday afternoon, over 1 million customers were without power in the Northeast, according to poweroutage.us. Power outages in Central Maine Power's area of responsibility surpassed those from the destructive 1998 New England ice storm, according to WMTW meteorologist Mallory Brooke. "

13 confirmed dead, dozens missing as storm slams Montecito with flooding

Mudslides and debris flows from intense storms that hit Santa Barbara County buried Highway 101 on Tuesday, January 9, 2018. The highway is expected to be closed for days because of the severe damage. This video was taken at the Olive Mill Road overpass, with water flow coming from Montecito Creek.

 

Update, 5:20 p.m.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said the area hit hard by mudslides and flooding is an “active rescue area” and asked anyone who doesn’t need to be there to stay away.

“We have an inordinate number of people in the area come to take a look, and they’re impeding operations that are occurring out there,” Brown said, adding that deputies would enforce a law that states any unauthorized person who enters a closed emergency area is committing a misdemeanor crime.

Oprah caught in devastating California mudslide: Sixteen dead as talkshow legend's $50m estate is overwhelmed by knee-deep mud and Jimmy Connors is evacuated from his mansion by helicopter

 

  • Up to 16 people died in southern California after downpours caused mudslides northwest of Los Angeles
  • Most deaths were believed to have occurred in Montecito, a wealthy neighborhood of about 9,000 people
  • The enclave is home to such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey, Rob Lowe, Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Connors
  • Winfrey's home survived the storms, but she shared videos of knee-deep mud in her yard and rescue missions
  • Former tennis star Connors told his Twitter followers that he had to be evacuated from his home by helicopter 
  • Rescue crews used helicopters to pluck more than 50 people who were trapped in homes and on rooftops
  • The Critical coastal highway US 101 was shut down for 30-mile stretch from Ventura to Santa Barbara
     

Celebrities including Oprah Winfrey and tennis legend Jimmy Connors are among the thousands who have been affected by flash flooding and mudslides in southern California that have already left 16 people dead.

Multiple bodies were found during the rescue operations on Tuesday in Montecito, 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles, after downpours sent mud and boulders roaring down hills that were stripped of vegetation by a gigantic wildfire that raged in the state in December.

Most deaths were believed to have occurred in Montecito, a wealthy enclave of about 9,000 people northwest of Los Angeles that is home to such celebrities as Winfrey, Rob Lowe and Ellen DeGeneres. One person was also killed in a weather-related fatality in Los Angeles County.

Huge waves pound coast; man swept out to sea

 

The forecast of dramatic seas and unusually high waves drew many people to the shore, and a 44-year-old man was swept out to sea near Depoe Bay around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, ­according to ­the ­Depoe Bay Fire District.

The search for him was called off late Thursday, the Coast Guard reported.

Authorities were withholding the man’s identity pending notification of his family in Mexico.

Popular seafront Lincoln City establishments such as the Sea Gypsy Inn at 145 N.W. Inlet Ave. and the Sandcastle Beachfront Motel at 3417 S.W. Anchor Ave. were heavily damaged by the surging waters, with windows torn out and their interiors inundated. North Lincoln Fire & Rescue posted photos of damage to Kyllo’s Seafood and Grill, 1110 N.W. First Court, where waves tore through windows and stripped off siding before swirling through the parking lot, leaving large rocks in their wake.

Massive waves pummel Oregon coast; man swept to sea in Depoe Bay presumed dead

 

Monstrous waves, some twice the size of a two-story home, are battering the coast of the Pacific Northwest. The display of oceanic power, fueled by a storm system off the coast, has made for some fantastic storm watching, but has created dangerous conditions for beach-goers and some oceanside businesses.

The U.S. Coast Guard announced that it is no longer searching for a man in his mid-40s who was swept away by a wave in Depoe Bay after what the agency reported as "negative results." The man had reportedly ventured over a sea wall to look at the ocean during the storm earlier in the day. He is presumed dead, Oregon State Police said.

Huge waves slam into Puerto Rico, force evacuations

Feb. 5, 2018 

 

"SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico –  Waves nearly 30 feet (9 meters) high from a U.S. winter storm are slamming into Puerto Rico, forcing authorities to evacuate dozens of families.

The Department of Public Safety said Monday that coastal roads in San Juan and other areas remain closed as large waves are washing over them. Several beaches also have been closed as well as 24 schools. The swells have destroyed several docks, among other things.

Officials said the waves are larger than those generated by Hurricane Maria when it hit Puerto Rico nearly six months ago as a Category 4 storm."

This is the view of how much rain had fallen and to where.

It's showing almost ENTIRE Western side of Jpn is flooding right now.

8 prefectures in "state of emergency" and the gov is trying to put through special disaster funds now. 400 of JSDF crews are attending for just 1 site. Lots more spreading across the disaster zones.

Currently 88 dead and 37 unknown status.

It was not due to the flooding itself that caused most deaths. Although the water rise was at high speed and people got caught by that, but still it wasn't harsh enough to rob people's lives.

....It was when mountain sides collapsed after unable to hold water anymore, and housings suddenly got crushed under the sliding dirt and mud, people who were indoor at that time got crushed by the house and mud and died. (It shows pine trees are absolutely useless to keep up with water retention. That's been said decades ago and no one changed the way...? Who is accountable now...)

Clearly any stupid land brokers which created housing on the disaster prone areas should be prosecuted and should never do the same. But at the same time, no one was foreseeing how bad the rain was going to be.....

↓A very sobering thing to see is below data over 3 days...

Devastating Monsoon Floods in Kerala, India

August 22, 2018         Alan Taylor

"India’s southern state of Kerala is suffering its worst monsoon flooding in a century, with more than one million people displaced, and more than 400 reported deaths in the past two weeks. Aid agencies and government groups have set up more than 4,000 relief camps, while rescue personnel are making their way to submerged Page 12 of 12  villages in helicopters and boats, bringing supplies, and evacuating those they can find. Weeks of heavy rainfall have caused dams to open their floodgates, triggered landslides in the mountains, and swamped the coastal regions of Kerala. Only in recent days have floodwaters begun to recede, allowing more access for aid workers and rescuers.
