On Thursday, Hurricane Lee was churning in the open waters to the northeast of the Caribbean as a Category 4 storm and heading toward the Leeward Islands. The storm has picked up steam in the last day and now has winds in excess of 130mph. 'Lee continues to strengthen at an exceptional rate,' the National Hurricane Center stated.

    Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency as California braces for Hurricane Hilary to hit today. Residents in the south of the state have been given evacuation orders ahead of the historic storm making landfall around 1pm. The governor's office has tried to reassure them extensive preparations are underway, including the deploying of 'more than 7,500 boots on the ground'. But panic buying has set in and some supermarket shelves in San Diego and Los Angeles were stripped bare of essentials such as water and tinned food. The tropical storm, the first set to make landfall in California since...
  • Not Just Gas Stoves: Biden Admin Rule Would Outlaw Nearly All Portable Gas Generators...Crackdown comes as country faces increased risk of power outages

    Just months after a Biden-appointed regulator teased a ban on gas stoves, the administration is working to enact a rule that would prohibit the manufacturing of nearly all portable gas generators on the U.S. market. A proposed Consumer Product Safety Commission rule limits the amount of carbon monoxide a product can emit, with the commission admitting that 95 percent of portable gas generators on the market cannot comply with its new standard. As a result, industry leaders say, the rule will prompt widespread generator shortages, as manufacturers only have six months to design generators that meet the proposed regulation. That...

The Twin Cities region may see up...

    The City of San Francisco is attempting to blame the National Weather Service (NWS) for the poor local response to last week’s rains, which saw “sewer geysers” in some neighborhoods, and extensive flooding. The San Francisco Chronicle reported: City officials squarely blamed a lack of preparation on incorrect weather forecasts from the National Weather Service — but the agency disputes that and has communications with the city to back it up. … Officials said that San Francisco was not prepared for the New Year’s Eve downpour because the National Weather Service indicated only half an inch to three quarters of...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/AP) — After experiencing an atmospheric river that soaked Northern California New Year's weekend, Bay Area residents prepared for another, even stronger storm system set to arrive Wednesday that weather forecasters warn could have catastrophic impacts. A new weather system was predicted by afternoon or evening, but the National Weather Service (NWS) said the rain would be modest until the arrival late Tuesday of another strong atmospheric river delivering a long plume of Pacific Ocean moisture.

    Just three days after a record-breaking storm brought significant rain, widespread flooding and significant mountain snow to much of California, another, perhaps even more powerful double whammy of an atmospheric river and bomb cyclone is targeting the region this week that could become one of the more impactful storms to strike the state in years. Mandatory evacuation orders have even been issued ahead of the storm for neighborhoods with a high risk of flooding. In this case, the developing storm will tap into abundant tropical moisture available in the Pacific Ocean, creating a reasonably strong "atmospheric river" that will carry...
