    KIAWAH ISLAND, South Carolina (AP) — President Joe Biden arrived in South Carolina on Wednesday to begin what is expected to be at least a seven-day vacation with members of his family. The first couple was planning to be in Kiawah Island, noted for its private beach and golf resort, through Tuesday, according to Federal Aviation Administration advisories. The White House did not respond to requests to provide details on Biden’s vacation schedule, activities or when he planned to return to Washington, nor did it provide information on the residence where he was staying. Biden, accompanied by first lady Jill...
  • “Economic Hurricane” – Hyperbole Or Real Possibility? ("Will Need More Than An Umbrella")

    An “economic hurricane” is coming. That ominous warning comes from Jamie Dimon, CEO of J.P. Morgan Chase. “I said there were storm clouds. But I’m going to change it. It’s a hurricane. Right now it’s kind of sunny, things are doing fine, and everyone thinks the Fed can handle it. That hurricane is right out there down the road coming our way. We don’t know if it’s a minor one or Superstorm Sandy. You better brace yourself.” Of course, he isn’t the only CEO feeling this way. The most recent CEO Confidence Index suggests that most leaders are concerned about...
  • Researchers to Build ‘Cat 6’ Hurricane Simulator with 200 mph Winds

    The Category 6 hurricane’s howling winds accelerate to a startling 200 mph in Miami, mercilessly pummeling a two-story wood-frame house until the roof tears off and the rattling windows explode. And a towering 20-foot storm surge spawns battering waves, swamping the structure and shoving it off its foundation like a doomed dollhouse. Sounds like a scene from a sci-fi disaster movie. But with real-world Atlantic hurricanes pushing the limits of the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, Florida International University researchers envision a future mega-wind-water simulator that tests how building components would react under Cat 6 conditions.

  • Study Finds Cleaner Air Leads to More Atlantic Hurricanes

    Cleaner air in United States and Europe is brewing more Atlantic hurricanes, a new U.S. government study found. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration study links changes in regionalized air pollution across the globe to storm activity going both up and down. A 50% decrease in pollution particles and droplets in Europe and the U.S. is linked to a 33% increase in Atlantic storm formation in the past couple decades, while the opposite is happening in the Pacific with more pollution and fewer typhoons, according to the study published in Wednesday’s Science Advances. NOAA hurricane scientist Hiroyuki Murakami ran numerous...

    Britain’s Met Office issued a rare red weather warning for parts of the UK, saying hurricane-strength gusts of 90 miles (145 kilometers) an hour are set to hit the country on Friday. The weather service said the most dangerous winds are likely to affect the southwest coast with damaging gusts expected inland too. The Energy Networks Association is advising people to prepare for possible blackouts by charging their phones and keeping a torch ready. “Storm Eunice will bring damaging gusts in what could be one of the most impactful storms to affect southern and central parts of the UK for...

    resident Biden is tapping former New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu to coordinate the implementation of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, the White House announced Sunday. “In this role, Landrieu will oversee the most significant and comprehensive investments in American infrastructure in generations - work that independent experts verify will create millions of high-paying, union jobs while boosting our economic competitiveness in the world, strengthening our supply chains, and acting against inflation for the long term,” the White House said in a news release. In Sunday’s announcement, the White House touted Landrieu’s work shepherding New Orleans through its recovery following...

    On Sept. 22, Michael Sussmann appeared via video at the first status conference held in Special Counsel John Durham’s criminal case against the former Clinton attorney. During the hearing, the government noted some disclosure material likely included classified information, spinning speculation of what those documents might be.But while the prosecution remains in its infant stages, and it will be some time before the country knows more details related to Sussmann’s role in Spygate, the biggest backers of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax have already exonerated Sussmann. That fits a long pattern of collusion spinners downplaying every investigative advance into their Russia...

    A CARFAX spokesperson warned this week that a couple of hundred thousand used cars from the Tri-state area and Gulf Coast states are about to hit the market, and there’s a risk many of them are flood-damaged from Hurricane Ida. “Our data suggest that unsuspecting buyers everywhere are at risk of winding up with a previously flooded car,” said Chris Basso, CARFAX spokesperson. “The real danger is that these cars may look fine and run well for a while, but sooner rather than later major problems are likely to occur. Flooded cars literally rot from the inside out and the...

    Update (1158ET): Nicholas intensified into a Category 1 hurricane early this morning before making landfall southwest of Galveston, Texas. The storm has been downgraded to a tropical storm with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph as it slowly traverses the Greater Houston area. Much of Texas’ coastline is under tropical storm warning, and metro areas like Houston could be prone to flash floods. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said first responders are in the Houston area and along the coast. Meteorologist Kent Prochazka of the National Weather Service told AP News that Nicholas had downed trees. In the southeast part of...

    Sen. Chuck Schumer on Sunday called on Congress to spend $33 million on upgrading the systems that help forecasters predict extreme weather after the remnants of Hurricane Ida caught local officials off guard earlier this month. “What we saw with Hurricane Ida and what we see more and more is that storms change rapidly, varying in course, rainfall and other factors — and we need to keep up with all of it in real time,” said Schumer (D-NY) in a statement. The senator is also seeking $3 million in federal funds for upgrades to the Empire State’s system to allow...

Kennedy airport in Queens, Biden was met by jeers and profane signs from a group of angry Trump supporters as his motorcade rolled through New Jersey One red, white and blue flag said "F*** Biden' with a sub-heading that read: 'And F*** You for voting For Him.'

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Tropical Depression Mindy developed in the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday, moved across Florida Wednesday night, and has re-emerged in the Atlantic Ocean on Thursday. Mindy is about 100 miles to the east-southeast of Charleston, SC, and will continue to move further east and away from the Carolina coast into Friday. Mindy does not look to directly impact the Carolinas on Friday, yet it will bring a higher risk for rip currents along the beaches of North and South Carolina into the weekend. Hurricane Larry continues to churn in the Central Atlantic Ocean, passing near Bermuda...
  • Ida Hit Crushes Crude Output In Gulf Of Mexico, Ranked Worst In 16 Years

    Hurricane Ida’s disruption to the U.S. offshore energy production in the Gulf of Mexico is the worst in 16 years. It has already stressed domestic and global supply chains, further testing the Federal Reserve’s “transitory” inflation narrative. Gulf Coast hurricanes usually cause minor disruptions in offshore oil and gas production, but this time around, output from the region has been significantly reduced due to Ida’s 150 mph winds that damaged platforms and onshore support facilities. What this will mean is a long recovery for offshore energy production to return. Reuters notes 79% of the region’s offshore oil production remains offline....

    With Hurricane Ida having made its way through Louisiana and Mississippi, leaving behind a region flooded and in many places without power, some local residents and activists are directing their unhappiness at more than just the forces of nature. As the Category 4 hurricane hit the city, New Orleans Police Superintendent Shaun Ferguson said that authorities would deploy “anti-looting” teams, and would “not tolerate” anyone trying to take advantage of the situation caused by the storm. On Tuesday, Ferguson said New Orleans police have made several arrests for looting, and Mayor LaToya Cantrell enforced a citywide curfew to begin the...
  • Tropical Disturbance In Gulf Expected To Stay South Of Louisiana, But Heavy Rain Possible (Going Across Florida)p

    A tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to stay south of Louisiana and head for Florida, hurricane forecasters said Monday. However, it could still bring rain to Louisiana and the Gulf Coast toward the middle of the week. The heaviest rain is possible south of Interstate 10, according to the National Weather Service in Slidell. Forecasters said the additional rain would be problematic because much of southeast Louisiana is still soaked from Hurricane Ida, which hit as a Category 4 storm a week ago. Any more rain could lead to flash flooding and slow down cleanup and...

    I blame the mayor’: residents fume at de Blasio, AOC over flood Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave Mayor Bill de Blasio a pass for failing to warn New Yorkers about the fatal storm that lashed the city last week — preferring to pin the blame on climate change — but her Queens constituents slammed Hizzoner and other city officials for their lack of preparedness. “I don’t blame climate change, I blame the mayor,” Danette Rivera, 47, told The Post outside her Woodside home Monday morning after de Blasio, AOC, Sen. Charles Schumer and FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell toured her block.

    Seven Louisiana nursing homes on Saturday were ordered to close immediately because their patients were evacuated to a single warehouse ahead of Hurricane Ida, the Louisiana Department of Health said. Seven patients have died since the move, and five of the deaths have been classified as storm-related fatalities, the health department said in a statement. Department personnel visited the warehouse on Monday and Tuesday and "observed conditions that have caused great concern to the State Health Officer that he reasonably believes may cause a danger to the public life, health, and safety," according to a separate state order prohibiting the...

John Bel Edwards declared that the Big Apple cops “get a pass” for butchering enunciations of local locations — and expressed gratitude for their work — on Twitter.

Trees are down all around Humberto’s house, no power, no AC-- so the poor guy’s losing it.
