Comparing New England's floods to the floods of Hurricanes Connie and Diane (1955)

The flood waters have receded in Rhode Island and surrounding regions of New England, leaving hundreds of millions of dollars in damage, but no flood-related deaths. The floods were caused by the third in a series of three extraordinarily wet Nor'easters that drenched the region with record rains over the past month. It was the wettest March on record over most of coastal New England from New York City to Boston, and the wettest month of any kind for several stations, including Providence, Rhode Island, and Blue Hill Observatory, Massachusetts. The rainfall amounts and resulting flooding in many cases exceeded the records set 55 years ago, during the notorious double-punch hurricanes of August 1955, when hurricanes Connie and Diane hit New England within five days of each other. However, this year's flooding event pales in comparison to the 1955 event, when considering damage and death toll. Hurricane Connie killed 25 people, and Hurricane Diane killed nearly 200 people when its record rains drenched regions already in flood because of Hurricane Connie. The single deadliest event occurred when a creek near Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania overflowed, killing fifty people unable to escape the rising water. Diane was the costliest hurricane in U.S. history, until it was surpassed by Hurricane Betsy in 1965. Accounting for inflation, Diane was the 16th costliest hurricane in U.S. history, with total damages of $7 billion (2004 USD.)

Severe weather today for Texas, Arkansas, and surrounding states
NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has designated portions of Texas and surrounding states as being at "slight" risk of severe weather today, as a strong springtime storm sweeps through the region. Check out the blog of our severe weather expert, Dr. Rob Carver, to get the details of this potential severe weather episode, which may bring damaging winds, hail, and possible tornadoes to the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex this afternoon.

Portlight shipping 30,000 pounds of rice to Haiti
Portlight.org continues to work hard to get food and medical supplies into the earthquake zone in Haiti. Their latest effort is a shipment of 30,000 pounds of rice and 20,000 pounds of other supplies, mostly medical equipment, that has been loaded onto the schooner Halie and Mathew. The schooner is laying in Miami, fully loaded, waiting for a decrease in the easterly trade winds. These trade winds will blow at 10 - 20 knots over the next few days, thanks to the clockwise circulation of air around a high pressure system located just east of the Florida coast. According to the latest run of the GFS model, as visualized using our wundermap with the model map layer turned on, the high will slowly move eastward over the next week, and the easterly trade winds will finally die down by Thursday, allowing the Halie and Mathew to set sail for Hispaniola. Please visit the Portlight.org web site to learn more and to donate to this worthy cause.

Afternoon all.

Oh the Discovery launch was incredible.. Up at 3am to get to the turn basin in front of the Launch Control Center. 15 mins before launch the ISS went overhead & right in front of the moon..best fly over ever! Probibly didn't take as many pics of lift off as usual. Oh the sound.. It blew me back & filled me. Had to just take it in. Never been so close. Twilight began 1 min after lift off. & ya'll know my obsession with Nocolucent clouds.. It was a dragon then an evil looking raindeer.. I think I have 2 or 3 hundred pics of that. There was baby osprey & bald eagles in the nests, fog & heavy traffic for the drive home. I'll get pics up in a bit.
Thankee much for posting the pics [whenever u get done with that...lol]. I totally missed the launch; when I finally DID turn over, it was well after 9:30 a.m..... so I'm glad somebody actually got up.

Morning,

Thanks Dr. Jeff and bloggers, very nice blog as always.

I have a question to bloggers,

How do you expect of new Atlactic Season?

will be same as 2008?

Thanks



Everyone is in agreement that this will be an above average year. How many will strike land is difficult to say this early on. Hopefully the storms stay out to sea and avoid land altogether. Last hurricane season was tranquil. But indications are that this season will be active.

Good Morning,

I was driving and didn't look up to see the launch... :-(
I'm looking forward to posts of the pictures.
Was interested to read that the Gulf Stream isn't slowing but more variable that previously thought. It still amazes me, what tiny satellite elevation measurements over time, can tell people.

Keeper, I agree, aftershocks been running in the 3's. Seems kinda weak. Of course it being a roller and not a rocker, aftershocks may spread more softly.

I certainly expect to see a 5 or higher, in the next 72-96 hours, still to the northwest of the epicenter.

TampaS has been predicting a strong earthquake near Juan de Fuca for about a month now. Probably not going to occur, but then again I predicted a strong earthquake in Chile to occur around February - March 2010 since about six weeks before the event so there's a possibility...

What's the chance this quake could set off the San Andreas Fault


Sorry, I don't see the San Andreas being a factor in my lifetime...which is really just a milisecond, tectonically speaking.

San Andreas seems packed pretty tight. Look at the different land types, to the east and west of it. IF it were to go, that'd be an end to a good stretch of the California coast.

San Jacinto and Elsinore, on the other hand, are to the west of San Andreas. Not packed quite so tightly. Like I showed in the map, and if you look where the aftershocks are headed, those two faults seem to be more likely to be problematic.

Think of a glass crack in a windshield. The crack will head out towards weaker areas.

This is JUST my opinion!!! All you tectonic brainiacs, don't slam me!

Hi ya'll This is where they're thinking the epicenter of the earthquake was, inside the blue box. Now, see the red line that extends northwestward? That's the Laguna Salada Fault.

Ok, see the two red branches at the top of the Laguna Salada Fault? Extend them on out. They would attach to the San Jacinto Fault, and the Elsinore Fault. Those are the two faults that I've been fussing about- just ask EmmyRose.

Tectonic Summary

The magnitude 7.2 northern Baja California earthquake of Sunday April 4th 2010, occurred approximately 40 miles south of the Mexico-USA border at shallow depth along the principal plate boundary between the North American and Pacific plates. This is an area with a high level of historical seismicity, and also it has recently been seismically active, though this is the largest event to strike in this area since 1892. Today's earthquake appears to have been larger than the M 6.9 earthquake in 1940 or any of the early 20th century events (e.g., 1915 and 1934) in this region of northern Baja California.

At the latitude of the earthquake, the Pacific plate moves northwest with respect to the North America plate at about 45 mm/y. The principal plate boundary in northern Baja California consists of a series of northwest-trending strike-slip (transform) faults that are separated by pull-apart basins. The faults are distinct from, but parallel to, strands of the San Andreas fault system. The April 4 main-shock occurred along a strike-slip segment of the plate boundary that coincides with the southeastern part of the Laguna Salada fault. Although the location and focal-mechanism of the earthquake are consistent with the shock having occurred on this fault, we do not yet have surface rupture or other confirmation. Aftershocks appear to extend in both directions along this fault system from the epicenter of today's event. The aftershock zone extends from the northern tip of the Gulf of California to the Mexico-USA border.

Earthquakes having magnitudes as high as 7 have been historically recorded from the section of the Pacific/North American plate boundary on which the 4 April 2010 earthquake occurred. The 1892 earthquake occurred along the Laguna Salada fault system, but significantly farther northwest than today's event epicenter. The 1940 Imperial Valley earthquake approached magnitude 7, though it occurred farther to the north and on the Imperial fault. Both the 1892 and 1940 earthquakes were associated with extensive surface faulting. An event of M 7.0 or 7.1 occurred in this region in 1915, and then a M 7.0 to 7.2 in 1934 broke the Cerro Prieto fault with up to several meters of surface slip.

In the vicinity of the 4 April 2010 earthquake, there are several active faults and it has not yet been determined specifically which fault the earthquake occurred on. Within the transition from the ridge-transform boundary in the Gulf of California to the continental transform boundary in the Salton Trough, faulting is complex. Most of the major active faults are northwest-southeast oriented right-lateral strike-slip faults that are common in mechanism to the San Andreas fault and parallel Elsinore and San Jacinto faults, that run north of the Mexico-USA border.

Lower Cal - these quakes at that fault line have been going on for months. I'm not too worried - today was a major shaker and it's news. Yes it was big, yes we got a good shake. It's a bit overblown. We've had large quakes over the last few monts on different fault lines. It's very similar to folks on the east coast or gulf who take their chances on hurricane season (which to me, is very nerve wracking- done it).

We're in Chula Vista - not far from the border of mexico. We're expecting aftershocks. But I feel little stuff all the time - this one was larger than usual - much larger. The kind that makes me walk around the house and wonder - perhaps the tv shouldn't be in that place - and last week when i put the kids photos above their bed - said - "you are going to soooo get konked on the head with that crap if we have a quake." I feel kind of out of the loop with you guy in the hurricane zone so i don't say much anymore. Miss all of you in a huge way. Trying to adapt to our new weather and what is going on here. Tough transition - from sailing to figuring out our weather to even getting used to the bought-boobs and upgraded faces. Nothing like feeling the floor beneath you start giving way. I know it's been a post here and there - about what is better or worse - hurricane season or having an earthquake. I don't think either one is wonderful. One has a warning which comes with it's own stress factors. The other strikes without and you have to hope that you've figured it all out ahead of time.

Sweet dreams...I'm sure I'll be up a few times this evening. Latitude: 32.641774 / Longitude: -116.943162
