Storms and Floods

Tropical Storms – Roundup of Tropical Storms:

Gl sst mm

In the Southern Hemisphere: Tropical cyclone (tc) 15p (Oma), located approximately 357 nm west-northwest of Kingston Island, is tracking southeastward at 09 knots.

In the Western Pacific Ocean: Typhoon 02w (Wutip), located approximately 170 nm southwest of Andersen AFB, Guam, is tracking northwestward at 09 knots.

NewsBytes:

Guam – The island had already started feeling the impacts of Typhoon Wutip this morning. Typhoon Wutip is pouring rain on the island. The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning.

USA – Rounds of rare weather, including floods, snowfall and the risk of a tornado outbreak. have been paralyzing communities across the U.S. this week. The rare phenomenon known as “thundersnow” occurred in both Ohio and Maryland. For the first time in more than a decade, measurable snow fell in Las Vegas, where a half-inch dusted the ground. Flagstaff, AZ, has seen more than 14 inches of snow. The same winter storm that brought the heavy snow triggered an emergency in Prescott, AZ. Torrential rains, up to 6 inches in some places, triggered floods and mudslides in the South. Flooding broke the banks of many rivers that were already at or above flood stage, turning many roads into rivers, and completely destroying some – as the risk of a tornado outbreak threatens a large area of the Southeast this weekend.

Upsurge in big earthquakes predicted for 2018 as Earth rotation slows

Scientists have warned there could be a big increase in numbers of devastating earthquakes around the world next year. They believe variations in the speed of Earth’s rotation could trigger intense seismic activity, particularly in heavily populated tropical regions.

Although such fluctuations in rotation are small – changing the length of the day by a millisecond – they could still be implicated in the release of vast amounts of underground energy.
