Posted by cat5shuttersllc on June 29, 2012

2012 FLORIDA’S SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS GUIDEDo you have a plan? – By Florida Division of Emergency Management

A Message From Governor Rick Scott:

Florida’s pristine beaches, diverse ecology, and temperate climate make our state one of the best places on Earth to reside and visit. However, this diversity can produce many natural hazards that Florida’s more than 18 million residents and tens of millions of annual visitors must be prepared to face. This Severe Weather Awareness Guide will give you and your family valuable information necessary to stay safe during an emergency. I encourage you to take a moment to read this Guide, and consider the appropriate steps needed to prepare for any potential weather related emergencies. I recommend you use these tools to develop a disaster survival plan, and an emergency supply kit. By doing so, all Floridians will better be able to protect themselves, their homes, and their businesses from all types of severe weather.

Message From The Director of the Florida – Division of Emergency Management

Florida is affected by many natural hazards, including, but not limited to, hurricanes, lightning, wildfires, floods, tornadoes and extreme temperatures. Floridians know that preparedness is important year-round, not just during hurricane season. That is why I am proud to present the 2012 Severe Weather Awareness Guide. By reading this guide you can learn interesting weather facts, and learn valuable information that can keep you and your family safe should one of these natural hazards happen in your area. From developing a family disaster plan to building an emergency supply kit, it is important that all Floridians are prepared to effectively protect themselves in the event of severe weather.

What Should I Do When A Watch or Warning Is Issued?

Posted by cat5shuttersllc on June 27, 2012

What Should I Do When A Watch or Warning Is Issued?When a HURRICANE WATCH is issued for your part of the coast, it means that hurricane conditions are possible within the watch area. The hurricane watch is issued 48 hours in advance of the anticipated onset of tropical-storm-force winds. This watch should trigger your family’s disaster plan, and proactive measures should be initiated especially those actions that require extra time such as securing a boat, leaving a barrier island, etc.

Florida Emergency Information Line Activated In Response To Tropical Depression Debby
Make Safety Your First Priority During Tropical Storm Debby

As Tropical Storm Debby continues to move across Florida, residents and visitors should be aware of safe practices and continue to heed instructions from local officials. As of 5 a.m. Tuesday, Tropical Storm Debby was located 85 miles west of Cedar Key, Florida and moving east at three mph.

“With nearly a foot of rain in some portions of the state, flooding is the primary concern from Tropical Storm Debby,” said Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Bryan W. Koon. “The State Emergency Response Team is working to support impacted counties and educate the public on steps to stay safe during severe weather.”

Flooding and storm surge is a major threat during tropical storms and hurricanes. The excessive rain from Tropical Storm Debby has caused flooding in many Florida counties, along with widespread power outages. The tips below can help you and your family or business stay safe during and after Tropical Storm Debby.

Turn Around, Don’t Drown. If you see a flooded roadway, turn around and take another route. Take your time when travelling.  Avoid Standing Water. Avoid contact with flood waters, especially if you have open cuts.

Wash Your Hands. Stay as clean as possible by washing your hands with soap and water that has been boiled or disinfected.

Don’t Wait to Evacuate. Follow instructions from local officials by staying tuned to local media for evacuation or sheltering and take action immediately.

Use flashlights, not candles. Ensure your family has enough flashlights and batteries in the case of a power outage. Candles create a fire hazard and should be avoided.

Avoid Downed Power Lines. If you see a downed power line, assume it is live and contact the utility. Do not try to handle it yourself.

Follow Beach Warning Flags. If you go to the beach, pay attention to the warning flags and do not swim if beaches are closed. Tropical storms, including Debby, increase the risk of dangerous rip currents.

Tropical Storm Debby weakens but Palm Beach County still feeling the affects

Posted by cat5shuttersllc on June 26, 2012

Tropical Storm Debby weakens but Palm Beach County still feeling the affectsTropical Storm Debby doubled in speed this afternoon while continuing its move northeast, according to the National Hurricane Center’s latest discussion.

At 2 p.m., Debby was 35 miles west to northwest of Cedar Key in Levy County and is now traveling east to northeast at 6 mph.

Its winds have remained at 40 mph, which is barely tropical-storm strength. Debby is expected to make landfall north of Yankeetown in Levy County sometime Wednesday morning. By Wednesday night, it is expected to be a tropical depression and should be just south of Salt Springs in Marion County. By Thursday morning Debby is expected to still be a depression and will be spinning in the Atlantic Ocean.
President Obama told Gov. Rick Scott this afternoon that Florida will have no “unmet needs” while recovering from Debby. He also shared his condolences for the one life Debby has claimed and the severe damage Debby has caused.

Meanwhile, with winds reaching about 205 miles to the southeast of the storm’s center, Debby continues to bring windy and possibly wet conditions with the potential for brief tornadoes to Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.

The National Weather Service forecasts clouds for the remainder of the day, with winds out of the south blowing 18 to 23 mph with gusts up to 29 mph. Rain chances grow as you move north and closer to the storm. There’s a 50-percent chance of rain in Palm Beach County and closer to 70 in the Treasure Coast.

Rainfall amounts since Tuesday, June 19, have been between 4 inches and 6 inches over Florida’s east coast metro areas, with some spots in Palm Beach County getting 8 inches to 10 inches, the weather service reports.

“Additional rainfall amounts through Friday will likely range from 3 to 5 inches over South Florida,” according to the weather service forecast discussion.

Our area may see some fast moving showers and storms as outside bands from the storm move through the area.

As Debby moves to the northeast and further away from us, we should get some breaks. Sun returns to the forecast Friday and sticks around through the weekend.

Tropical depression or not, lots of rain and clouds headed for Palm Beach County, Treasure Coast

Posted by cat5shuttersllc on June 22, 2012

Tropical depression or not, lots of rain and clouds headed for Palm Beach County, Treasure CoastIt won’t be raining everywhere in South Florida all day today, but forecasters do expect 3 inches to 5 inches to fall between now and Sunday in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.

The National Weather Service calls for an increasingly cloudy day with high temperatures near 84 degrees. The forecast calls for a 60 percent chance of rain in Palm Beach County, 70 percent for the Treasure Coast.

Those chances grow Saturday.

All these clouds and rain are courtesy a low pressure system over the southern Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center gives this system a 70 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression in the next two days, but models differ on the path it will take. It could stall after heading for the north central gulf or it could drift west.

Regardless of its development, South Florida is in for a cloudy, wet weekend with the possibility of thunderstorms. The west coast is due to get a bigger soaking with up to 6 inches of rain in spots. Residents from Palm Beach County to the Treasure Coast are expected to see rainfall totals from 3 inches to 5 inches through Sunday.

The wind will blow today out of the southeast at 7 mph to 15 mph with gusts up to 20 mph. There’s a moderate risk of rip currents at the beaches.

Sunshine State’s Potential Debby Deluge

Posted by cat5shuttersllc on June 21, 2012

Sunshine State's Potential Debby DelugeLast week we began discussing the potential for a depression or named storm to form over the Gulf of Mexico or western Caribbean later this week or weekend.

Tropical Weather Soon for Gulf?
A enhanced pulse of thunderstorms, triggered by the Madden-Julian Oscillation, has arrived in the eastern Pacific, central America and the western Caribbean Sea from off southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean. Out of this spun up Hurricane Carlotta, which sliced into southern Mexico last week.
Now, winds aloft over the Gulf of Mexico are forecast to become more favorable for low pressure to form and consolidate at least sufficient convection to be deemed either a tropical depression or tropical storm (“Debby” is the next named storm in the list), possibly as soon as late Friday.
Go to http://www.weather.com to look for the “hot spots”.

This matches up well with climatology, as the Gulf of Mexico and western Caribbean are typical “hot spots” for tropical cyclone development in June.

While much remains unknown about the eventual strength of the tropical cyclone in the Gulf of Mexico, one impact looks increasingly likely, not only from the cyclone itself, but well ahead of it.

Storm Summary Hurricane Chris

Posted by cat5shuttersllc on June 21, 2012

Storm Summary Hurricane ChrisQuick Facts

• Became hurricane: June 21
• Average date of 1st hurricane: August 10
To refer to “Chris” as an “overachiever” may be a bit of an understatement.
While Chris poses no threat to land and is expected to transition to a “non-tropical” low pressure system soon, it has become the Atlantic season’s first hurricane, at a latitude of roughly 41 degrees north, no less!
Only one
 other time on record during the month of June was an Atlantic hurricane farther north than Chris. You’d have to go all the way back to 1893, when a hurricane in post-analysis made it as far as 44 degrees north latitude, just south of the coast of Newfoundland!

Only twice before in history (1887 and 1959) has the third storm of the season formed earlier than Chris.

Later this week into the weekend, we will be monitoring the Gulf of Mexico for possible tropical development. For more on that story, click here to view our full Tropical Update.
