Check out these beautiful pictures of a storm brewing over the Hudson River and the Upper New York Bay last night. Thank you to my friend Samantha for sending these to me! I wish I could have witnessed this in person!
April Fool’s Day brought a lot of rain to the Fort Benning and Columbus area. My friends from home flew in for a long weekend and planned to sit by the pool all day while I was at work, until it stormed all day. Needless to say, that did not happen.
After I got out of work, we decided to take advantage of the rainy day by going to the National Infantry Museum. We then went downtown to go to dinner, and that is when we saw the results of the storm.
The Chattahoochee River completely flooded the riverwalk and its surroundings. I quickly tweeted my video of the flood to The Weather Channel and other local news stations. My tweet was picked up by The Weather Channel, ABC News, storm chasers and a local news reporter. I was SO excited to get a “favorite” and mention from The Weather Channel on Twitter! You can see the video and tweet by clicking here.
Below are some pictures I took of the flooding from my phone. You can see how much rain fell if you look at the lamp posts.
Texas has had it rough this past month. The residents there have not been able to catch a break from the severe weather. I found an article on www.weather.com that provided seven radar and satellite images of the Texas weather that were quite shocking. I thought these were pretty intense. I hope that Texas gets a break soon from the mess that have been challenged with.
As I always say, I am lucky to have family and friends that live all over the world! They all support my love for the weather and always send photos and videos to me when there is an extreme weather event in their area. My sister, Katrina, lives in Alviso, California and she sent me some pictures of the West Coast storm from her neighborhood. She couldn’t believe all the rain that accumulated and how much damage there was, especially because it almost never rains where she lives. Below is a slideshow of the photos she sent me… craziness!
The damage from this storm was devastating. Click here to read about the homes that were horribly damaged by destructive debris. Hopefully a storm like this does not hit the West Coast again anytime soon. The poor state and its residents need a break!
After destroying most of Cuba and Jamaica, Hurricane Sandy has made her way up the southeast coast. She has flooded Miami and left many stranded. Yesterday, I drove to Wrightsville Beach, NC to experience some of the upcoming storm surge. The waves were almost 12 feet high!….and that is while the storm is not even on land yet. We will see what happens when Sandy makes landfall and collides with two other storms creating…FRANKENSTORM.
