Greetings to everyone! I hope this week’s post finds all of you doing well. We’ll continue sharing severe weather preparedness information this week with an infographic on flash flood safety that is applicable in both thunderstorms and tropical cyclones . There are several other interesting topics to review, so let’s get started.
- A new search for life on Mars has begun with NASA’s Perseverance rover.
- Who would have thought? “Car tires produce vastly more particle pollution than exhausts, tests show.”
- This is an unfortunate example of misinformation, junk science, and climate change denialism blended together by nefarious interlopers and then integrated into a ‘culture war.‘
- This was the the largest atmospheric explosion in recorded history. “Burst of underwater explosions powered Tonga volcano eruption.”
- From Tampa, Florida to Alexandria, Egypt to Manila, Philippines, coastal cities round the world are slowly sinking.
- NASA has plans to launch six satellites that will give meteorologists valuable data on forecasting tropical cyclones.
- NOAA’s National Ocean Service has an excellent infographic and website on why our planet’s oceans are so important to our climate, economy, and survival as a species.
SEVERE WEATHER AND HURRICANE SAFETY
Whether it’s a thunderstorm, a tropical storm, or a hurricane, flash flooding presents a significant threat to life and property. Some years, flash flooding is the leading cause of weather related deaths. This infographic has some simple steps and a link for further information on staying safe when the waters begin to rapidly rise.
Please keep in mind that ONLY your local National Weather Service office, NOAA Weather Radio, or reliable broadcast media are the BEST sources of important, timely, and potentially life-saving, information on winter storm watches, warnings, and other related weather advisories! None of the links on this website should be used for life-&-death decisions or the protection of property!
Lastly, I wanted to pass along a reminder that was shared with me regarding misinformation, disinformation, rumors, gossip, et al. These six words, along with critical thinking, are exceptionally useful.
That’s a wrap for this post! Thanks to everyone for stopping by. A big ‘Thank You’ to my followers in social media. If you’re on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, or Facebook, let’s connect! As for the COVID-19 pandemic, stay safe, stay positive, and test negative!
See you next Saturday!
