DISASTER FORECASTED | Hurricane #Patricia Strongest Ever Seen and Recorded

SUMMARY

Why all of a sudden with all the Alerts and sheer panic? Why are we just now hearing about this?

As one writes on Social Media:

The storm nearly literally “came out of nowhere.” It first was issued as an advisory on Tuesday at 10 AM, with the innocuous comment: “TROPICAL DEPRESSION FORMS SOUTH OF THE GULF OF TEHUANTEPEC… …EXPECTED TO STRENGTHEN…”

By 10 PM Tuesday, it was already “Tropical Storm Patricia.”

By 4:00 AM Thursday, it was “Hurricane Patricia.”

Usually on the Atlantic, you can watch the formation of hurricanes as they begin way out over the Atlantic. This storm just spawned as if it were “a match thrown onto a pool full of gasoline.”

So, there you have the best answer that we could locate – and, it totally makes sense.

IMMEDIATE BROADCASTS

The National Weather Center / Hurricane Center updated Public Safety Advisory #15 (http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCPEP5+shtml/231448.shtml) at 1000 Hours CDT (NWS Hurricane Center in Florida),

“Potentially Catastrophic Hurricane Patricia moving Northward toward Landfall in Southwestern Mexico.”

It has been stated by the Weather Service, Hurricane #Patricia is the strongest eastern N Pacific Hurricane to be on record to hit landfall and considered the strongest tropical cyclone on record in terms of sustained speeds at 200mph.  Some sources are reporting that the Hurricane is also reaching gusts of 250mph.

Weather watches and warnings have been issued.  The Mexican Government has also issued their own Tropical Storm Warning and evacuation preparations began yesterday into working diligently overnight.

WARNINGS AND ADVISORIES

Hurricane Warning (Definition: Means that hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area, in this case within about 24 hours. Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion.)

  • San Blas to Punta San Telmo

Hurricane Watch (Definition:  means that hurricane conditions are possible within the watch area.)

  • East of Punta San Telmo to Lazaro Cardenas

Tropical Storm Warning (Definition:  means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.)

  • East of Punta San Telmo to Lazaro Cardenas
  • North of San Blas to El Roblito

Preparation to Protect Life and Safety should be immediately moved to completion.

RAINFALL PREDICTED

Rainfall from Hurricane #Patricia is expected to be 8-12″ accumulations with some at a total of 20″ in isolated areas.  Heavy rainfall is due to impact Mexican States: Nayant, Jalisco, Colima, Michoacan and Guerrero through Saturday.

With this amount of rainfall, this could produce life-threatening flooding and mud slides.

US FLOOD ALERTS

There are Alerts about lower Coastal flooding in the South Central States:  in the New Orleans and Shreveport areas into Houston, TX.  Read this more detailed article here –> http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/flooding-tropical-downpours-patricia-texas-oklahoma-central-us/53098639.

WIND CONDITIONS

Winds are predicted to reach Hurricane conditions in the warning areas in the next several hours. Worst conditions are expected to occur this afternoon / evening.

This Hurricane is predicted to be a Category 5 when it hits landfall is said to continue with sustained winds of 200 mph with higher gusts and is expected to travel North-Northeasterly across Western and Northern Mexico.  The forecast is predicting the Hurricane then will quickly weaken over the mountains.

STORM SURGE

Large to destructive waves are predicted to occur and cause life-threatening coastal flooding.

SURF

Swells are already affecting portions of the Southern Coasts in Mexico.

EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS

The Amateur Radio Operators in the Mexican State of Colima activated the Emergency net from the University of Colima by Omar Alvarez, XE1AO.  The net is operating on 7060 kHz.

They are asking the Amateur Radio communities to keep 14,120 kHz and 21,120 kHz clear for possible emergency traffic.

Reported so far:

  • Water Supply and most major grocery outlets closed in Manzanillo
  • Economic activity has been shut down in Manzanillo and Colima
  • Most tourists evacuated from all Coastal hotels
  • Evacuation of 60,000 residents currently under way
  • Colima still has some businesses open

Fayetteville Plans $4.1Million Radio Equipment System Upgrade

 

By Andrew Barksdale, Staff Writer

The city of Fayetteville is planning a $4.1 million upgrade to its radio equipment system to help emergency personnel communicate better in the field.

The City Council voted 10-0 on Monday night to approve the plan, which would spend $4.1 million from the city’s capital reserves over the next year installing new equipment on three communications towers and replacing other radio equipment.

City Manager Ted Voorhees said the city’s public safety 800 megahertz radio system will become obsolete by the end of 2015, when Motorola will no longer service it. He said the city has been working to find a new system since the mid-2000s. The city has grown in territory and population over the past decade, creating “dead spots” that don’t allow police officers to talk to dispatch in an emergency.

“We are hoping to fix that with this upgrade,” Voorhees said.

The city began using a version of 800 megahertz for its public safety radio system in the late 1990s.

During a dinner meeting Monday, some councilmen had questions about the upgraded plan, which is different from the radio system used by the state Highway Patrol and the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. That system is referred to as VIPER, which stands for Voice Interoperability Plan for Emergency Responders.

Assistant Police Chief Brad Chandler said the recommended upgrade, which will rely on new Motorola equipment, would allow city police officers and firefighters to continue to communicate with the Highway Patrol and Sheriff’s Office. He said Sheriff Moose Butler decided several years ago to stick with VIPER, which Chandler said has limitations over the city’s intended upgraded system.

Councilman Chalmers McDougald had a comment for Police Chief Harold Medlock about the upgrade.

“What I want to hear you say is it is a crime-fighting tool,” McDougald said.

“It is absolutely a crime-fighting tool – and officer safety,” Medlock said.

Mayor Nat Robertson looked at the police chief and asked him, “Are you saying this is what you need?”

The chief said, “Yes, sir.”

According to the plan, the city would have access to the city of Durham’s central hardware for the same radio system, which Voorhees oversaw its development when he was the deputy city manager there. Fayetteville would still use its own radios tower equipment for the new system. He said several agencies joined Durham’s system after it was built, and that local agencies in Cumberland County could chose to join Fayetteville’s upgraded system in the future.

The city would pay Durham about $200,000 a year for 10 years to use its central hardware, which is like a computer network server. The agreement with Durham is tentative. If it’s not approved by Durham officials, Voorhees said, Fayetteville would have to buy its own central hardware for $1.7 million, which would be in addition to the $4.1 million upgrade.

Other action

The council witnessed Councilman Bill Crisp take the oath of office while District Court Judge Tal Baggett administered.

In other business, the council:

Unanimously voted to award two contracts, totaling about $2 million, to extend the Cape Fear River Trail east of Ramsey Street and Freedom Trail in the downtown. Both projects are expected to be completed by next summer;

Voted 9-1, with Ted Mohn against, to adopt a plan to manage and take inventory of trees in parks and on city rights of ways at a cost of $32,960. Of that amount, $15,000 is coming from a state grant, and the city is contributing $5,500 in cash and the rest with in-kind city man-hours;

Voted 9-1, with Mohn against, to approve a special-use permit allowing the construction of a Family Dollar at the corner of Cliffdale and Hoke Loop roads;

Voted 8-2, with Jim Arp and Bobby Hurst opposed, to deny a conditional rezoning request that would have allowed the owners of OK Carz, a car lot business at Raeford Road along Little Drive, to expand its storage space to adjoining property behind their businesses. Neighbors opposed the rezoning;

Unanimously accepted a report on the city receiving a good, or “clean” audit with no “material weaknesses.”
