Tornado kills ten in Mississippi

A powerful 1/2 to 1-mile wide tornado cut a path of enormous destruction across the state of Mississippi yesterday, killing at least ten and injuring dozens. It was the deadliest tornado in the U.S. since May 10, 2008, when an EF-4 tornado killed 22 people in Oklahoma and Missouri. The damage I've seen so far from photos of yesterday's tornado appears to be mainly of the EF-3 variety, though we will have to wait for the official damage surveys to be sure. The supercell thunderstorm that spawned the tornado or family of tornadoes maintained a continuous circulation from the time the tornado first touched down in Louisiana near the Mississippi border until the tornado reached the Alabama border. This is an extremely rare occurrence. If the 188-mile path of destruction across Mississippi was from a single tornado, it would rank as one of the longest tracks by a single tornado on record. The record of 219 miles is held by the deadliest tornado of all time, the great Tri-State Tornado of 1925 (though there is some dispute over whether this was one tornado or a family of tornadoes.) Our severe weather expert Dr. Rob Carver has a more complete analysis and imagery of yesterday's tornadoes.

More severe weather expected today along the East Coast
The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) outlined a "Slight Risk" region of concern for severe weather today along the East Coast, from Maryland to Northern Florida. Yesterday, SPC had Mississippi underneath the first "High Risk" area of severe weather concern for the year. As usual, you can follow today's severe weather outbreak with our interactive tornado page and our severe weather page..

These reports originated from a single supercell thunderstorm that spawned one or more tornadoes that carved out a 188-mile lone path of destruction across the state.

Quoting CycloneOz:


Most of you know that I'm against the politicization of GW...

But having said that...we must stop screwing up our oceans.

We must continue to search for oil offshore, but we should develop more robust technologies that will automatically seal off the well should another catastrophe like this occur.

And for goodness sake, we need to stop treating the ocean like a giant landfill!

Oz~ as long as we pull oil from the ocean floor or even just transport it by boat we are going to continue spilling it everywhere. Even platforms in shallow waters with strict regulation isn't going to stop a hurricane or drunk/sleeping barge operator from dumping it in the sea.

Hello.

Yesterday I mentioned some "waves" that were poised to exit the west coast of Africa.

Levi said it looked like just daytime convection to him.

Well...here we are today and those blobs did exit the coast and are still around today...now in the Atlantic.

What shall we call them today? :)

NOAA's latest update from lastnight..

Deepwater Horizon Incident, Gulf of Mexico

Updated each evening
Situation: Monday 26 April

While Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) continue to work on triggering the blowout preventer (a series of valves that sits at the well head) to contain the leak, other rigs are en route in case relief wells are needed. An underwater oil collection device that would trap escaping oil near the seafloor and funnel it for collection is being designed and fabricated. Collection devices have been used successfully in shallower water but never at this depth (approx. 5000ft). Efforts are now focused on: gathering more information about the spill (amount, fate and effects), plans for possible undersea containment, drilling relief wells, maximizing oil recovery and readying for shoreline assessments. Natural resource damage assessment (NRDA) activities are now underway. The plan for attacking the spill has the following elements:

* Try to activate the blow-out preventer (BOP) using ROVs – could stop leaks in several days, if successful
* Use an undersea dome to contain leaking oil, rigged by ROVs – has not been tried this deep before
* Drill relief wells which could then be plugged - this process could take several months
* Aggressive skimming and dispersing of oil on the surface – ongoing
* Assessment and protection of coastal resources at risk - thousands of feet of oil containment and deflection boom are ready to deploy, experts are on-scene and en route

Aerial observers did not see whales or dolphins today, but marine mammal issues are very much a concern for the Unified Command. NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) will provide data, plan surveys, and offer protocols. This year has seen a marked increase in natural strandings of marine mammals in the Gulf of Mexico which will make oil impacts more difficult to assess.

Weather forecasts from NOAA’s National Weather service indicate winds from the north – which helps keep oil away from shoreline - until Wednesday with a shift to the southeast thereafter.

Aircraft applied more oil dispersant today, but 15-20 kt winds and 4-6’ seas made oil recovery on the surface more difficult.

The latest NOAA oil-spill trajectory analyses do not indicate oil coming to shore over the next 3 days; this assumes that the rate of oil release does not increase and that the weather remains as forecast.


There's also a new issue today with currents in the area have shifted to the south, basically making a bee line for the loop current.

But the wind is still the main driving force.

NASA's Global Hawk Completes 28-hour GloPac Science Flight


04.26.10

NASA's Global Hawk and its array of science instruments are being monitored and controlled by pilots and scientists from the Global Hawk Operations Center at NASA DrydenNASA's Global Hawk and its array of science instruments are being monitored and controlled by pilots and scientists from the Global Hawk Operations Center at NASA Dryden. Although its flight path is pre-programmed, human pilots can override and re-program the flight control computers at any time if needed. (NASA Photo) NASA's Global Hawk completed its longest flight to date April 24, touching down shortly before 5 a.m. PDT at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California after a 28-hour and 36-minute flight to the Arctic.

The high-altitude, autonomously operated aircraft flew two atmospheric data-collection passes at 85 degrees north latitude, about 340 miles from the North Pole, during the flight. That latitude is the farthest north any Global Hawk – civil or military – has ever flown. The Global Hawk cruised at altitudes up to 65,100 feet while its sensors recorded atmospheric data during the mission, well above all other air traffic.

Packed with 11 atmospheric monitoring instruments, the Global Hawk had taken off from Edwards at 12:13 a.m. April 23 and landed at 4:48 a.m. the following morning. The flight was the third data-collection flight and the fourth overall in the NASA-NOAA 2010 Global Hawk Pacific (GloPac) environmental science mission. The first flight in the series April 2 was devoted to a checkout of aircraft systems and science instruments.

Mission managers are hopeful that a final long-duration flight can occur prior to May 1, the date the mission is due to conclude.

Portlight volunteer kitchengypsy went to Yazoo City ,Miss Sunday and filed the Situation report below..

Quoting KitchenGypsy:
Yazoo City, MS Tornado damage assessment, 4/25/10



The southern end of Yazoo City along MS 49 is devastated. Immediately south of town lie the remains of a church, all that is left are three crosses, and even those are leaning. Moving north on 49, the command center and staging areas are housed in the parking lots of shopping centers that have been reduced to piles of rubble. Cell phone service is not available within city limits, further complicating an already difficult relief effort.

Downed power lines and fallen trees block almost every road except route 49. To the west, damage is less apparent, but heading east, the swath the winds cut through the trees is clearly evident. Roads are blocked in all directions except north at the city limit on 49, with only residents and utility crews allowed east. In town, several businesses off 49 have damage that appears to be from gusts, but the historic downtown section appears to be unharmed.

West, along old highway 3, the destruction is more random, with many pockets of severe damage, but also many homes left untouched. Trees were stripped of bark and snapped in half, pieces of tin roofs wrapped around limbs and trunks, and yet less than a quarter miles away, the scenery was pristine. Our assessment team saw many groups of neighbors working together to clear damaged property. East of Yazoo City is sparsely populated residential areas. The damage is hard to see from the few passable roads, but broken limbs and bents trees are in abundance.

Yazoo City is the staging area and incident command center for the entire disaster. We spoke with city officials and learned that there is no immediate need for durable medical equipment. By our count, there were at least 5 mobile serving units set up. At least 3 of these are local groups serving at the staging area, with a focus on relief personnel. The Salvation Army and Red Cross are staged nearby, and are also delivering meals out to the residential areas. The Salvation Army is serving 2 full meals per day, with snacks and cold drinks in between. They report approximately 800 meals served Sunday, and expect the numbers to rise slightly over the next day or so. At this time they have no need of additional volunteers.

At this time, Portlight has decided not to deploy an emergency feeding unit to Yazoo City. We base this decision on 3 factors:

1) Scope. Although the scenes of devastation are terrible, by our estimate, more than half the city is relatively unharmed. With several restaurants, gas stations and other services open for business in such close proximity to the command center, we have faith that continuity of operations will soon be established for the whole city.

2) Current efforts: All current relief teams, with special emphasis on the Red Cross and Salvation Army, are doing an excellent job of handling the situation. They have taken pains to ensure food distribution across the affected areas, and we have confidence that they are truly the best organizations for this type of situation.

3) Anticipated Need / Speed of Recovery: although the extent of the damage will most likely require outside work crews, we saw very encouraging signs of progress. Work crews were active at almost every damaged site, which is highly impressive for less than 24 hours after the storm. Even when volunteer crews are brought in, we anticipate their needs being more than adequately met by the existing local churches, who have already started feeding work crews and rescue personnel. In addition to the Red Cross and Salvation Army, Portlight extends our appreciation to all members of this exemplary community response.



Your continued generosity to Portlights general relief fund allows us to continue our mission of serving the underserved. Although we may not be responding to the Yazoo City tornado at this time, we appreciate your support for our future efforts.

Good Morning WU-Bloggers. Bright sunny and DRY here in northeast Florida.

ok, I think I got the ENSO thing figured out:

ElNino- we're pretty safe.
Neutral- Lotsa storms but no one knows where they will go
LaNina- lotsa storms and they head more west.

So since it's not ElNino anymore....

Joint Typhoon Warning Center
Tropical Disturbance Summary
7:30 AM UTC April 27 2010
===========================================

An area of convection (90W) located at 8.9N 120.2E or 160 NM northwest of Zamboanga, Philippines. Animated multispectral satellite imagery and a 0539z AMSU-B Microwave image shows curved convection around a weak low level circulation center, which has recently moved over warm water in the Sulu sea. Upper level analysis shows the system is located beneath the near equatorial ridge axis in an area of low vertical wind shear.

Maximum sustained winds near the center is 15-20 knots with a minimum sea level pressure of 1009 MB. Due to high sea surface temperatures and improved convective organization, the potential for this disturbance to form into a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours is UPGRADED TO FAIR.
