Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Picks For March 20 – 27, 2020 #science #weather #meteorology #severeweather #flooding #floodsafety #climate #climatechange #environment #weatherready #coronavirus #covid19 #pandemic #health

Greetings once again to one and all! Plenty of interesting topics to cover this week. In atmospheric science news, our changing climate is front and center and will be for many years as humanity grapples with the best path of adaptation. The coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic is foremost on everyone’s mind with a world-wide pandemic that’s like nothing the world’s current population has ever seen. We’ll cover that topic with several of this week’s picks…so let’s get started.

FLOOD SAFETY

Flooding is a threat that exists year round but with the onset of the spring severe weather season, it’s become more likely across North America. Here are some helpful infographics from NOAA regarding staying safe if you encounter the weather phenomenon that causes more deaths annually than any other hazard.

An emergency kit is also an essential part of severe weather preparedness. This handy checklist from the American Red Cross will help you get started. Since severe weather and other weather-related disasters can occur year round, it’s an excellent idea to have this at the ready regardless of where you live or the month/season.

That’s a wrap for this post! I’d like to extend a warm welcome to my new followers in social media. I’m glad you’re along for the fun! If you’re on Twitter, Instagram, or Tumblr, so am I and I invite you to enjoy me. Once again I’d like to thank so many of you for all the thoughtful comments I’ve received as of late. Cancer does not have to be an automatic death sentence and I have no intention of giving up this fight and will accept nothing but absolute and total victory. If you’re a male over the age of 40, you should discuss getting your PSA tested with your doctor. The Prostate Cancer Foundation is an excellent website with further information. As for the coronavirus, please follow good personal hygiene and prescribed by official sources, stay safe, and stay healthy!

Cheers…and Good Luck!

Tornado Quest Top Ten Science Picks For March 13 – 20, 2020 – #science #weather #meteorology #tornado #severeweather #climate #climatechange #environment #renewables #solar #weatherready #coronavirus #covid19

Greetings once again to one and all! Plenty of interesting topics to cover this week. In atmospheric science news, our changing climate is front and center and will be for many years as humanity grapples with the best path of adaptation. The coronavirus is the big story with the USA now under, as of 13 March 2020, a national emergency and a world-wide pandemic that’s like nothing the world’s population has never seen. We’ll cover that topic with several of this week’s picks…so let’s get started.

Tornado Safety Guidelines

Severe weather and tornadoes may be the last thing many want to hear about, but it is that time of year and to deny or avoid that reality is to invite trouble. With the arrival of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, we have our biggest annual increase in severe weather activity. For much of North America, that also means a substantial increase in tornado activity. If you are in a Tornado Warning, it’s imperative that you do not ignore the warming or listen for sirens. “Tornado warning sirens” are cold-war era technology that is ineffective. When you do take shelter, please follow the following guidelines from NOAA & the National Weather Service.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU TAKE SHELTER FROM A STORM AND/OR TORNADO IN AN UNDERPASS!

For our severe weather preparedness tip for this week, let’s touch on two topics…reliable and official sources of weather forecasts, watches, and warnings, and then, the difference between a severe weather watch and warning.

This infographic says it all concisely, clearly, and makes no mistake that you should only follow important severe weather information from trusted weather sources.
