Tornado Quest Top Science Links For October 29 – November 5 – 12, 2022

Greetings everyone! I hope this week’s post finds all of you well. For the eastern Pacific and Atlantic, the hurricane season is wrapping up soon but there is still potential for development. Hurricane Nicole, the first November hurricane to make landfall in the USA in over forty years is proof positive that events can still occur well into the autumn. Therefore, I’ll continue sharing helpful information on preparing an emergency kit that will be helpful in a hurricane, severe weather, or winter storm scenario. There are many essential science reads this week including important information on the COP27 summit, so let’s get started.

  • I’m reposting this due to the fact that hyperbole, sensationalism, misinformation, and disinformation are pervasive in severe weather, hurricane, and winter storm scenarios. Who do you trust when it comes to natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, etc? The simple and most sane answer is to stay with official resources. This is the best and safety way to avoid the misinformation and disinformation that is so pervasive in social media.
  • Here’s a look at the latest US Drought Monitor. Drought conditions still plague much of the contiguous USA with many midwestern and southern states now experiencing moderate to severe drought.

  • Last but certainly not least, if you’re looking for hurricane preparedness information, here’s your one stop website for everything you need to know for before, and after the storm. This all inclusive website from NOAA will help you prepare for the storm and tell you how to stay safe afterwards. The infographics below will help you prepare an emergency kit and use discretion when you come across questionable weather information/forecasts/hyperbole when online or using social media.

See you next Saturday!
