jimmyjackfunk: jimmyjackfunk: Wife's step mom out in little axe got hit car damaged half roof gone and that area has pissy cell service

Finally got ahold of her. Damn cell service sucks out there


Times like this cell phone get overloaded, granted it may always be bad no clue but everyone calling to make sure everyone is safe will shut down a system.
I also couldn't use the NWS Radar for the Midwest since there servers were overloaded.

Yikes! We just flew over those storm cells. It was bumpy but wouldn't have guessed there were tornados. Hope my next flight doesn't get caught up in this weather.

tinfoil-hat maggie: AbbeySomeone: ariseatex: Matthew Keene: God-is-a-Taco: Seattle has that problem as well, although it's mostly in regards to a tsunami from an offshore one.

I'd like to shake the hand of any tsunami that could make two right turns to get into Puget Sound to affect downtown Seattle.

It's much easier than you think.  The underwater geography is such that it would easily channel and amplify any tsunami that did come in.

There's also concern from an earthquake causing a Whidbey Island (or a similar Sound Island) rockfall creating a massive wave in itself.

/minored in rocks for jocks at UW-Seattle
//also, I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night
///slashies come in threes

This and the fault line activity and volcanoes. Rainier is out my back window.
Path of the lahar, etc.

So were you saying earlier Rainer is getting twitchy? I sorta saw your earlier post but was watching immediate storm stuff. Or just at anytime it could?


Disaster pron or =current events?
I live at the base of Rainier and I follow the volcanic activity; common sense.

So is the giant swirl towards the left an EF9? (I know they don't exist, but it looks like it). Similar to a hurricane on land.


nope..just the center of your normal low presure

Bunny Deville: He's in northern Lauderdale County. That thing was seriously headed right for him, we were both pretty freaked out. I had to track it for him because of course his satellite went out.


I started watching it when it was NW of Athens, my mom called wanted to know if it was safe to get on the road from where she was to home. And yea that's a problem with satellite also my internet connection can get fritzy with storms. That was the worst thing about the April 27th tornadoes the power going out and relying solely on radio. I felt like I was a teen again.

Oh, this was a different one. You're talking about the one that went up into TN. My friend posted pics of that one on Facebook when it was near Athens. I was supposed to drive up to Fayetteville that day for powerball tickets, I'm glad I didn't. Got caught on that same stretch of road two years ago in a microburst... lightning truck a power line and it fell on the car and scared the shiat out of us, then we were nearly killed by a flying rack of ferns. I kept screaming for my friend to pull the fark over and her husband kept screaming at her to drive faster. I ended up calling my husband and telling him that I was about to die and that I loved him and the kids.
 
2013-05-19 09:55:01 PM  
It sounds like hail is the main concern right now.

On a brighter note, oh how I love the names of the towns here. There seems to be new ones for each storm.

Heh, Pumpkin Center. I don't think I've ever seen that one yet.

They usually do, actually.
 
2013-05-19 09:56:09 PM  

ariseatex: An eruption would happen with a month's notice (if not longer). All those glaciers on the mountain could "flash melt" anytime though, as a precursor to an eruption (or just because it feels like farking with everyone who moved into the lahar zone).


Oh I'm well aware of what a Rainer eruption would mean. If I'm not mistaken lahars kill more people than pyropastic flows do generally.

That's exactly how those form up in the clouds. You won't really get spherical hail at that size.

Just asking if there was current activity, IIRC there was some activity on the subduction zone last year. But yea I understand why you watch it same reason I keep up with the weather west of me because that could come here.

No, we all made it home and got smashed together. He bought the alcohol. And now people listen to me about the weather, mostly.

jimmyjackfunk: I know that the guy who owns the property our park is on came out to survey the damage but was more interested in the trailers he owned (we are buying not renting) and actually made the statement "there is no way a god damn tornado did all of this" of course he was from the left coast and only experienced the typical California stuff. The park manager had to get him out of harms way cause I think some folks were ready to form a lynch
mob


To be fair, I've seen some parks a tornadee could only improve

I grew up in Oklahoma but now live in Los Angeles.  I much prefer tornadoes to earthquakes; at least with tornadoes, you get ample warnings to take shelter.  Can't say the same about earthquakes.

The folks I know in Norman tend to be more liberal than the rest of Oklahoma, as often happens in university towns.  If anything, you want Norman to be unscathed and the rest of the state to be swept away.

It's only nice because it's not going through a city at that moment. That also looks very much like the one going through Cullman Alabama's suburbs in 2011 (it was being shown live) before the power went out when one of the Nuke plants power lines got hit.

I can never remember which one is Kansas, Arkansas or Missery (even have a mental block on spelling that one, ((but I think I nail the feeling of living there)), anyway......).
I can look at map of Europe or Africa and know them all
