yikes what weather in the eastern half of the US this week.
the storms in TX look like they just sat on top of the SE portion of the state and drenched it.
just saw a pic on weather.com of an entire neighborhood underwater.

up here in midwest, cold/warm front has collided and is just rubbing against one another not moving.
so the actual front is just rotating over the same areas. So far its just green and yellow on the radar, red later this morning. 3-5'' expected around here.

already looking forward to winter weather :lol:

hope everyone is safe down in TX

Two tornadoes touched down in northeastern PA last Wednesday, including an EF2 in Wilkes-Barre that tossed vehicles around at a car dealer, trucks around at a U-Haul location, and destroyed or damaged 21 other businesses in a shopping center. Fortunately when it hit around 10 pm, most of the businesses were closed with nobody inside. There were only 6 injuries reported and no fatalities.

We get a few EF0 tornadoes in PA every year, and occasionally an EF1, but an EF2 is pretty rare. The theory being that the mountains help to disrupt organization in storms. Not this time.

not that it will help my situation I'm guessing but when my son can help me upload youtube videos of my water issues, I'm going to direct every last soul in government around here to go watch. Maybe they'll bump me to the top of the county's buy list. we have had drizzle now for hours and hours, backyard drain is at full capacity. If it rained hard, I'd be in back with my giant pump which doesn't make a dent when you have a river entering the yard.

oh yeah, happy summer everyone :P :clap:

Just read that parts of hurricane harvey areas in TX received 15'' of rain last 2-3 days
I really hope all of our members down there are doing fine.
Stay safe.

Heatwave pretty much everywhere, but in San Diego County there are a few big wildfires blazing right now. Any members in the area stay safe and hydrated.
I heard that I-8 is still partially open with fires on both north and south sides and firefighters running along the 8 :o

Yes all time high in Ramona today 115, 108 in Alpine (biggest current fire) with 11 % humidity.
Only about 93 at my house closer to the coast, but it's been averaging 72-74 for weeks.

Phone started going nuts with flash flood warnings around 11:30 pm. Been running around between properties ever since. The alley at my place turned into a small river, two feet or so of water in my lot, sump pump running but no place for it to go. The shop is in decent shape. Have three pumps running at my parents' place and the finished basement still took on some water. Generator on standby. Haven't lost power yet but surrounding areas have. Trees are uprooting from saturated ground and there have been some mudslides closing roads. Pumps are finally starting to catch up now. Long night (morning) of clean up ahead. Sounds like all of the area rescue boats and the hovercraft have been busy all night. Stay safe folks.

I have lived this Nate and I will say....pay mind to those warnings folks. We tend to get one every so often and disregard it but that should put you on alert. If you start to get 3-6 of them in a short period "blowing up your phone" stop what your doing and get ready because it can get real ugly fast.

Stay safe Nate. Watch the electricity.

Another day of torrential rain for parts of central PA last night and today. More thunderstorms moving through now. Major flash flooding one county north of me and one county south of me. Somehow I'm in a dry(ish) pocket this time. Our local fire companies' boats and hovercraft have been on standby / assisting with water rescues a few towns north for the last seven hours, as is a SWAT Bearcat from that area and the bigger fire tankers that can get through the water. They also called in National Guard trucks. Most of the main roads in and out of the area are impassable and they are preparing to close interstate 80 if needed as the water is just about up to the road surface on both sides.

This video is actually one county south where it isn't quite as bad.

Add 3 DCNR / National Guard helicopters to the rescue vehicles in action. Just saw video of a full size camper trailer floating down a creek with a report that it was the second witnessed by the individual recording, and drone video of the small town of Benton mostly under water. Fishing Creek is the main culprit up in that area and the one threatening to close interstate 80.

EDIT: Lots of videos on the Fox56 Facebook page.

Hawaii may face direct hit, serious damage from Hurricane Lane to end this week

Major Hurricane Lane is forecast to close in on Hawaii and threaten lives and property on the islands due to pounding surf, flash flooding, mudslides and strong winds.

There is the possibility of Lane making a direct hit on one or more of the islands late this week and into this weekend. The ultimate severity of impacts will depend on the exact track and strength of Lane.

Even in lieu of a direct hit, "Lane has the potential of bringing the state of Hawaii serious and perhaps record damage," according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.

Just heard from Kathy Crumpton in Hawaii; the hurricane is mostly driving her nuts, but no real danger:

HI Bill,
Have been housebound for days now, both Mako and I are going crazy!
All work is halted and we are all staying off the roads. We are still getting constant flash flood warnings on the phones and tv. No damage for my house or either of the project houses (We just finished one and its for sale, the other one just has framing, windows, doors and roof, no drywall yet, so that is good) We do have security cameras all around the finished house, so I can watch those on my cell and see that all is OK with that property. Luckily none of the properties is in a low area, so water is not collecting. I am pretty careful about where I buy land.
There is still more rain coming, but it should be mostly gone by tomorrow. We are all super happy that the lava seems to have stopped, everything has been upset because of that situation. The good news for us is that everyone now is moving into Lava zone 3, which is where we are, so all the property values are starting to recover.
Hope all is well with you,
Aloha,
Kathy

Hurricane Lane thankfully turned out to be a non-event for us on Oahu. Although the Big Island and Maui are still getting pounded by record-setting heavy rains.
