UPDATE 8/4/15: Guillermo ~ Buh-bye!


Updated 11:27 AM HST, August 4, 2015
Posted 05:29 AM HST, August 4, 2015

11 a.m. CPHC forecast track

By Meteorologist Malika Dudley / Email: malika@mauinow.com

***Updated at 10:50 a.m.***

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 6:00 p.m. Thursday for Maui and the Big Island. Abundant moisture from Tropical Storm Guillermo moving over the area. Excessive runoff may result in rock and mudslide in steep terrain. Fast-moving water may create life-threatening situations.

A High Surf Advisory is posted for east facing shores of Maui and Moloka’i from midnight to noon Thursday. East swell generated by Guillermo currently affecting the Big Island and Maui will build as it spreads across the island chain tonight and Wednesday. Surf is expected to peak early Wednesday for Maui and late Wednesday for Moloka’i. Surf is expected around 5 feet this evening, increasing to 6 to 10 feet late tonight and Wednesday, before declining on Thursday.

The track has again been nudged north as of the 11 a.m. update. Guillermo is forecast to remain well northeast of the Hawaiian islands at its closest point of approach. If this motion continues and there is no significant deviation to the left of the forecast track, the Tropical Storm Watch for the Big Island and Maui County may be cancelled later today or tonight.

Guillermo is now 480 miles E of Kahului, 535 miles E of Kaunakakai
and 510 miles E of Lanai City. Maximum sustained winds are still at 70 mph as of the 11 a.m. CPHC update and the system is moving NW at 10 mph. The system should weaken and dissipation is expected in 72 hours.

***Updated at 5:00 a.m.***

Guillermo is a bit stronger this morning than it was for much of yesterday, now a tropical storm with maximum sustained winds of 70 mph. The storm, located about 520 miles E of Kahului, 570 miles E of Kaunakakai and 550 miles E of Lanai City, continues to move NW at 12 mph.

The track forecast has the system continuing in this general motion through today. Tonight and Thursday Guillermo is expected to shift WNW.

If this track remains true, the center of Guillermo should pass 215 miles northeast of Hilo Wednesday afternoon and around 165 miles north of Maui Wednesday night with tropical storm force winds currently extending about 175 miles from the center. The moisture field extends even beyond that.

IMAGE: NWS at 5:15 a.m.

There is potential for slight strengthening today but the system looks a little less organized this morning compared to late last night. We’re seeing warmer cloud tops and less thunderstorm activity on satellite. Slow and steady weakening is expected from then on as vertical wind shear takes over again and starts to tear the storm apart. Sea surface temperatures are still sufficiently warm to sustain a hurricane so we can’t rule that out from the possibilities.

A Tropical Storm Watch is posted just in case the system decides to jog left of the expected track. If that happens, tropical storm conditions are possible within the next 48 hours somewhere within the watch area.

A watch is typically issued before the possible arrival of tropical storm force winds which make continuing outside preparations dangerous. Having said that, the probability of tropical storm force winds is currently 11 percent for Hilo and 13 percent for Kahului. Which is a general downward trend from yesterday.

The chance for heavy rain and thunderstorms continues Wednesday and Thursday. Total rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches with isolated maximum amounts near 7 inches (in higher terrain) are possible. If the system tracks closer to us, those numbers could go up. If Guillermo tracks farther away from us, rainfall amounts will be lower. Winds are expected to remain below 39 mph but only a slight shift left could result in higher winds so we need to keep watching.

A High Surf Advisory is still in effect through today for the Big Island and large swells are expected through much of the week.

DETAILED WEATHER FORECAST UPDATE:

Based on the current track (5 a.m.), mostly cloudy skies and windy conditions are expected Wednesday and Thursday with heavy rain likely in windward locations. Leeward spots have a chance of heavy rain through the day, then heavy rain is likely Wednesday night and Thursday.

There is a slight chance of thunderstorms Wednesday night and Thursday. Northeast winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph becoming variable up to 15 mph on Thursday.

Over the weekend we should get our easterly winds back from about 15 to 20 mph. Showers are likely in windward spots with scattered leeward showers and mostly cloudy skies.

Locust swarm destroys agriculture of village in Southern Russia

Swarms of locusts have plagued humans since the advent of agriculture.

Pesticides and other methods have controlled their spread and ability to swarm and destroy crops in the last hundred years or so. That said, if left unchecked, they still can cause biblical havoc on crops – just ask farmers in southern Russia.

This week tens of thousands of locusts swarmed the Russian village Achikulak in Stavropol krai and destroyed local agriculture. The swarm was caught on video (click below).

The locust infestation began in late July and have spread to an area of 90,000 hectares, causing a state of emergency in several regions.

Locust swarms occur when there is a drought followed by rapid vegetation growth. The changes cause the insects to breed like crazy and then they set out on a path of destruction, moving in bands that are at first wingless and then morph into winged devils, consuming anything and everything in their path.

Heat, drought cook fish alive in Pacific Northwest


Heatwave US NW
August 2015OREGON – Freakishly hot, dry weather in the Pacific Northwest is killing millions of fish in the overheated waters of the region’s rivers and streams. “We’ve lost about 1.5 million juvenile fish this year due to drought conditions at our hatcheries,” Ron Warren of Washington State’s Department of Fish and Wildlife said in a statement. “This is unlike anything we’ve seen for some time.” Sockeye salmon losses in the Columbia River due to the heat are in the hundreds of thousands, said Jeff Fryer, senior fishery scientist with the river’s Inter-Tribal Fish Commission. The fish were returning from the ocean to spawn when the “unprecedented” warm water killed them, he said. Water temperatures in the Columbia River — part of which runs along the border of Oregon and Washington — reached the low 70s shortly after July 4, something that doesn’t usually happen until August, if at all, Fryer said.
High temperatures — coupled with the low water levels — can be lethal to fish, according to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. With no end to the drought in sight, there could be additional fish die-offs, said Rod French, a fish biologist with the department. Dead and distressed sockeye salmon found earlier this month in the Deschutes River in Oregon likely came from the Columbia River and were bound for other locations before they swam into the Deschutes in search of cooler water, the department said. Early pathology results suggest they died from columnaris, a bacterial infection typically associated with high water temperatures and/or low levels of dissolved oxygen.
In Idaho, “it’s a tough year for all (migrating) fish, including sockeye,” Mike Peterson, Idaho Fish and Game’s senior sockeye research biologist, said in a statement. Recreational fishermen in the region are also feeling the heat: Warm stream temperatures due to low flows and hot weather cause fish trauma, disease, and deaths, which has prompted the closing of streams to all fishing along the Washington Cascades, Richard Heim of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration wrote in this week’s U.S. Drought Monitor report. “When streams get too warm, fish are stressed and as a result the fishing goes downhill fast,” Rick Hargrave, information and education division administrator at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, said in a statement. “Fish stop biting or retreat to deeper, cooler water where they are harder to catch.” July will likely be one of Seattle’s hottest single months on record, the National Weather Service reported.
On Friday, the city hit 90 degrees for the 11th time this summer. That’s an all-time record for normally mild Seattle. The current heat wave is expected to last into early next week. Meanwhile, 100% of Washington and Oregon are now in a drought at the same time, something that hasn’t happened since 2001. The trouble for the fish actually began months ago, when a lack of snowpack from an unusually warm winter resulted in drought conditions throughout much of the Pacific Northwest. Typically, a decent snowpack slowly provides water to rivers and streams, helping to sustain fish through the drier summer months, according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. But, with little or no snowpack, flows in many rivers have dropped significantly and water temperatures have increased — deadly conditions for fish. –USA Today

HEAT WAVE: 42C heat wave begins in Cyprus – code yellow warning issued & Iran city hits suffocating heat index of 165 degrees, near world record


Cyprus HW
August 2015CYPRUS, Greece – Another week of boiling weather has already begun, with forecasters predicting temperatures could rise as high as 42C by Tuesday. The Weather Service issued a ‘code yellow’ weather warning on Saturday, meaning: “The weather is potentially dangerous. The weather phenomena that have been forecast are not unusual, but be attentive if you intend to practice activities exposed to meteorological risks. Keep informed about the expected meteorological conditions and do not take any avoidable risks.”
The entire island is already basking in “wall-to-wall sunshine” as a swathe of blistering hot air sweeps in from Asia. The heat wave will peak on Tuesday with temperatures reaching 42 degrees inland, a meteorologist told the Cyprus News Agency. The mercury this weekend will average around the 38 degrees mark and will gradually climb above 40ºC, with 41 degrees being the average. On the coastal areas slightly lower temperatures, ranging from 34 to 38 degrees, are expected.
The heat could have health impacts, causing dehydration and exhaustion, particularly in people over age 65, infants and young children, people with medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, asthma or respiratory conditions. People who have been consuming caffeine or alcohol are also at a higher risk of dehydration, public health officials said. –Famagusta Gazette

Iran city hits suffocating heat index of 165 degrees, near world record

Iran heat Index

August 2015IRAN – Wherever you live or happen to travel to, never complain about the heat and humidity again. In the city of Bandar Mahshahr (population of about 110,000 as of 2010), the air felt like a searing 165 degrees (74 Celsius) today factoring in the humidity. Although there are no official records of heat indices, this is second highest level we have ever seen reported. To achieve today’s astronomical heat index level of 165, Bandar Mahshahr’s actual air temperature registered 115 degrees (46 Celsius) with an astonishing dew point temperature of 90 (32 Celsius).
This 165 reading, recorded at 4:30 p.m. local time Friday, comes one day after the heat index soared to 159 degrees (70 Celsius) in the same location. Bandar Mahshahr sits adjacent to the Persian Gulf in southwest Iran where water temperatures are in the 90s. Such high temperatures lead to some of the most oppressive humidity levels in the world when winds blow off the sweltry water. In southeast Iran, also along the Persian Gulf, Jask, Iran observed a heat index of 156 degrees (69 Celsius) on Friday (air temperature 102.2 degrees with a dew point of 91.4 degrees).
Although there are no official records, 178 degrees (81 Celsius) is the highest known heat index ever attained. It was observed in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia on July 8, 2003. In his book Extreme Weather, weather historian Christopher Burt says Dhahran, also on the Persian Gulf, registered an air temperature of 108 degrees (42 Celsius) and a dew point of 95 (35 Celsius), which computes to such an extreme heat index level. This week’s extreme heat index values have occurred as a punishing heat wave has engulfed the Middle East.
On Thursday, Baghdad soared to 122 degrees (50C) – though its dew point was a lowly 44 (7 Celsius) given its desert environs. That combination produced a heat index of 115 – the dry air taking a slight edge off the blistering temperatures. A massive high pressure ridge or “heat dome” responsible for the excessive heat doesn’t look to budge for several days, at least. – Washington Post

Landslides kill 29 in earthquake-ravaged Nepal


Nepal Landslide
July 2015NEPAL – Landslides triggered by heavy rains in quake-hit Nepal killed at least 29 people yesterday, sweeping away homes and leaving more than a dozen missing. Rescuers are still searching through rubble for around 15 more people believed missing in the western district of Kaski in the foothills of the Himalayas, around 150 kilometers (90 miles) west of the capital Kathmandu. “The number of dead has risen to 26 in our district,” said Kaski police chief Kedar Rajaure. “Over 200 of our personnel are still working at the site to search and rescue.”
Three more people, including an 83-year-old man, were killed in two landslides in the neighboring districts of Myagdi and Baglung, according to a statement released by authorities. Eighteen people injured in the disaster have been taken to local hospitals for treatment, Rajaure told AFP. Scores of people die every year from flooding and landslides during the monsoon season in the Himalayan nation. Two weeks ago a student was killed when a landslide buried part of a school in the nearby town of Pokhara, and 35 people died last month when a landslide crushed villages in northeastern Nepal. The monsoon rains are also hampering delivery of relief supplies to mountainous villages devastated by the massive earthquake that struck the Himalayan nation on April 25. More than 8,800 people were killed by the quake and a large aftershock, and many more were left without shelter. –The Daily Star

Papua New Guinea’s Manam volcano erupts violently, ejects 12 mile high ash plume


Manam Volcano
July 2015PAPUA, NG – The Manam volcano in Papua New Guinea sent up a major eruption on Friday, local time, and the first of its kind in almost 11 years. Volcanic ash was sent 19,812 meters (65,000 feet) into the air as a result of the eruption, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology reported in a volcanic ash advisory. The plume was moving to the southwest but was spreading out in all directions. A Code Red aviation advisory was issued as a result. The eruption was reported around 1 p.m. Friday, local time (11 p.m. EDT). The last major eruption of Manam, located 13 kilometers (8 miles) off the northern coast of Papua New Guinea, occurred in August 2004, according to the Global Volcanism Program at the Smithsonian Institution. The Manam volcano is 1,807 meters (5,927 feet) high. –Accuweather

Growing unrest: volcanoes rumble and are shaken by earthquakes from Mexico to the Philippines


Popo Volcano
July 2015 GEOLOGY – Mexico’s National Disaster Prevention Centre said in its daily report that the volcano registered a total of 80 low intensity exhalations and six explosions yesterday, releasing plumes of smoke between 1.5 and two kilometers high. Authorities are urging people not to get close to the volcano and particularly to its crater. Popocatepetl is the second tallest volcano in Mexico and is in the centre of the country. –TVNZ
Quake near Alaska’s Redoubt Volcano: A 6.3-magnitude earthquake has struck in Alaska, some 42 miles southwest of the active Redoubt Volcano, the US Geological Survey (USGS) has said. Notably, the earthquake also struck near Mt. Katmai, the site of the largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century. The epicenter was 9 miles south of Mt. Iliamna, another volcano in the area, the Alaska Dispatch News reported. According to the USGS, the quake hit about 141 miles southwest of Anchorage. The agency is forecasting “very light damage.” The earthquake was originally reported as having a magnitude of 6.2, but was later revised up slightly. USGS reported two minor tremors prior to the 6.3 magnitude one. Although the quake did not strike far from the Redoubt Volcano, there’s nothing to suggest activity has been triggered by the quake. There have been four confirmed eruptions at the volcano since the 20th century began, in 1902, 1966, 1989 and 2009. –RT News
Philippines Mt. Bulusan shaken by quakes: At least eight volcanic earthquakes rocked Mount Bulusan volcano in Sorosgon, signifying that the volcano continues to show signs of restiveness, the Philippine Institute of Volcanolgy and Seismology (Phivolcs) said Wednesday. Phivolcs-Bicol resident volcanologist Ed Laguerta said the quakes and the swelling of the volcano’s edifice are signs that pressure is building up in the volcano’s vent. Aside from eight volcanic quakes, Phivolcs instruments recorded for the past 24-hour observation period slight inflationary trend at the volcano’s edifice during the precise leveling surveys. Alert Level 1 (abnormal) remains hoisted over the volcano.
Laguerta warned the public to keep off the four-kilometer permanent danger zone due to the possibility of sudden and hazardous steam-driven or phreatic eruptions. The Phivolcs also advised pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as ash from any sudden phreatic eruption can be dangerous to aircraft. It also warned residents living within valleys and along river channels around the volcano of possible flooding and lahar flows in the event of heavy and prolonged rains. –Sun Star
Magma intrusion in Peruvian volcano: Only last week, scientists recorded the largest explosion at Peru’s most active volcano, Ubinas, in the Moquegua region of Peru. Now, scientists have recorded an ascent of magma within the volcano, reports El Comercio. The explosion last week resulted in the emission of large rocks (some the size of small cars) which frightened the local communities. Ash and small rocks up to two centimeters in diameter made their way to the communities of Querapi, Ubinas, Sacohaya, Tonohaya, Anascapa, Escacha and San Miguel, according to the mayor of Ubinas, Luis Concha.
Following this explosion, the volcano emitted pulverized magma according to Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP) scientist, Orlando Macedo. In other words, very fine sand and fragmented magma, or small rocks. “Villagers report that they saw incandescent rocks coming out of the crater. We will make a visit to the area to determine the size of the projectiles and the scope they had,” said Macedo, according to El Comercio. –Peru this week

More and bigger drilling-linked earthquakes rattle Oklahoma


Ok Quakes
July 2015OKLAHOMA – Several earthquakes shook Oklahoma on Monday as the state experiences a sharp increase in the frequency of tremors linked to wastewater disposal from gas and oil drilling, including from fracking, state and federal officials said. Three of Monday’s quakes measured above a magnitude 4.0, with a 4.5 earthquake centered just north of Crescent, roughly 45 miles (72 km) north of Oklahoma City, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said. The largest tremor, logged a “significant earthquake” by the USGS, could be felt as far away as Wichita, Kansas, about 160 miles north, broadcaster KOTV reported. There were no reports of damage. The rate of earthquakes in Oklahoma has increased by about 50 percent since 2013, greatly increasing the chance for a damaging quake, according to the USGS.
Noticeable quakes – above magnitude 3.0 – now hit the state at a rate of two per day or more, compared with two or so per year prior to 2009. During the past seven days, Oklahoma has experienced about 40 earthquakes, according to the USGS. Scientists say the seismic activity is triggered by the injection of wastewater from booming oil and gas drilling operations into deep geological formations. The state’s oil and gas regulator released a directive this month expanding “Areas of Interest,” parts of the state that have been worst-hit by the quakes, and adding restrictions for 211 disposal wells. In March, the regulator – the Oklahoma Corporation Commission – also directed 347 wells to reduce their injection depths to above the Arbuckle formation. High-volume injections into the Arbuckle, the state’s deepest formation, have the highest potential for seismic activity, according to the USGS. Twenty-one of Oklahoma’s 77 counties are under the order, and oil and gas drilling operators have until Aug. 14 to comply with reducing injection depth. –Yahoo News
