TROPICAL WEATHER DISCUSSION…UPDATED
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1605 UTC SAT JUL 26 2014

TROPICAL WEATHER DISCUSSION FOR THE EASTERN PACIFIC OCEAN FROM
THE EQUATOR TO 32N…EAST OF 140W. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS
BASED ON SATELLITE IMAGERY…WEATHER OBSERVATIONS…RADAR…AND
METEOROLOGICAL ANALYSIS.

BASED ON 1200 UTC SURFACE ANALYSIS AND SATELLITE IMAGERY THROUGH
1500 UTC.

…SPECIAL FEATURES…

GENEVIEVE WAS DOWNGRADED TO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION AT 26/1500
UTC. AT THIS TIME…IT IS CENTERED NEAR 12.2N 137.0W MOVING WEST
OR 270 DEGREES AT 4 KT. ESTIMATED MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE IS
1006 MB. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WIND SPEED IS 30 KT WITH GUSTS TO 40
KT. MOST OF THE CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY IS DISPLACED TO THE E OF THE
EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CENTER. NUMEROUS MODERATE TO ISOLATED STRONG
CONVECTION IS NOTED WITHIN 90 NM E SEMICIRCLE. AN EARLIER ASCAT
PASS SUGGESTS THAT THE CIRCULATION IS BECOMING ELONGATED. SOME
GRADUAL WEAKENING IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS AND THE
DEPRESSION IS FORECAST TO BECOME A REMNANT LOW IN ABOUT 3 DAYS.
PLEASE SEE LATEST NHC FORECAST/ADVISORY UNDER AWIPS/WMO HEADERS
MIATCMEP2/WTPZ22 KNHC FOR MORE DETAILS.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION EIGHT-E IS CENTERED NEAR 14.4N 107.3W AT
26/1500 UTC MOVING NORTHWEST OR 310 DEGREES AT 13 KT. A SLIGHTLY
FASTER WEST-NORTHWEST TO NORTHWEST MOTION IS EXPECTED DURING THE
NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. ESTIMATED MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE IS 1007
MB. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WIND SPEED IS 30 KT WITH GUSTS TO 40 KT. A
LARGE AREA OF MODERATE TO STRONG CONVECTION IS TO THE N WITHIN
240 NM OF THE CENTER. SOME STRENGTHENING IS POSSIBLE DURING THE
NEXT 48 HOURS…AND THE DEPRESSION COULD BECOME A TROPICAL STORM
LATER TODAY. PLEASE SEE LATEST NHC FORECAST/ADVISORY UNDER
AWIPS/WMO HEADERS MIATCMEP3/WTPZ23 KNHC FOR MORE DETAILS.

FIRST-LIGHT VISIBLE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT THE CENTER OF A 1007 MB
LOW PRES LOCATED NEAR 14.5N127W IS TOTALLY EXPOSED AND ABOUT 60
NM TO THE NW OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. UPPER LEVEL WINDS ARE
FORECAST TO BECOME HIGHLY UNFAVORABLE FOR TROPICAL CYCLONE
FORMATION TONIGHT OR SUNDAY. CURRENTLY…THE NHC TROPICAL
WEATHER OUTLOOK GIVES THIS LOW PRES AREA A HIGH CHANCE OF
DEVELOPING INTO A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS. AN
AREA OF FRESH TO STRONG WINDS WITH SEAS TO 11 FT IS EXPECTED TO
BE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.

…TROPICAL WAVES…

A WEAK TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 117W/118W FROM 10N TO 20N MOVING
WESTWARD 15 KT. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED MODERATE CONVECTION IS
NOTED WHERE THE WAVE MEETS THE MONSOON TROUGH…MAINLY FROM 08N
TO 10N BETWEEN 115W AND 122W.

…INTERTROPICAL CONVERGENCE ZONE/MONSOON TROUGH…
MONSOON TROUGH EXTENDS FROM 09N84W TO 07N95W TO TROPICAL
DEPRESSION EIGHT-E NEAR 14N107W TO 10N118W TO 1007 MB LOW
PRESSURE CENTER NEAR 14.5N127W TO 12N134W. SCATTERED MODERATE
ISOLATED STRONG FROM 06N TO 08N E OF 81W AND FROM 09N TO 13N
BETWEEN 87W AND 95W. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED MODERATE FROM 08N TO
10N BETWEEN 115W AND 122W.

…DISCUSSION…

AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH REMAINS ACROSS THE NORTH-CENTRAL PORTION
OF THE DISCUSSION AREA N OF 15N W OF 125W. THE MEAN AXIS EXTENDS
FROM A CYCLONIC CIRCULATION NEAR 34N131W TO 30N129W TO 16N138W.
MODERATE SUBSIDENCE WITH DRY AND STABLE AIR AT THE MIDDLE AND
UPPER LEVELS IS OVER MUCH OF THE AREA N OF 18N W OF 125W. UPPER
LEVEL DIFFLUENT FLOW IS ENHANCING CONVECTION ALONG THE MONSOON
TROUGH MAINLY W OF 120W. A LARGE UPPER LEVEL ANTICYCLONIC
CIRCULATION CENTERED OVER THE TEXAS PANHANDLE EXTENDS A RIDGE
ACROSS NORTHERN MEXICO AND NORTHERN BAJA CALIFORNIA TO NEAR
27N118W. AN UPPER CYCLONIC CIRCULATION IS S OF THE RIDGE NEAR
22N115W WITH A TROUGH EXTENDING S TO NEAR 17N114W. AN INVERTED
TROUGH CONTINUES FROM THIS POINT TO 08N113W. AN ANTICYCLONIC
CIRCULATION IS NEAR 17N102W. STRONG SOUTHERLY WINDS ARE NOTED
BETWEEN THESE TWO UPPER LEVEL FEATURES. N TO NE FLOW ALOFT
DOMINATES THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST REGION E OF 100W.

GULF OF PAPAGAYO…STRONG TO NEAR GALE FORCE TRADE WINDS OVER
THE SW CARIBBEAN WILL RESULT IN ANOTHER PULSE OF 20-25 KT WINDS
THROUGH THE GULF OF PAPAGAYO OVERNIGHT TONIGHT INTO SUN MORNING.
THESE WINDS WILL PULSE AGAIN SUN NIGHT INTO MON MORNING. SEAS
WILL BUILD TO 9 FT DURING EACH PULSE. WINDS ARE FORECAST TO BE
20 KT OR LESS BY SUN NIGHT.

GULF OF TEHUANTEPEC…ANOTHER PULSE OF NLY WINDS OF 20-25 KT WAS
NOTED THIS MORNING. WINDS ARE FORECAST TO BE 20 KT OR LESS
THIS AFTERNOON.

OTHERWISE A SURFACE RIDGE DOMINATES THE REMAINDER OF THE AREA N
OF 15N W OF 115W. PRES GRADIENT BETWEEN THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY
OF THE RIDGE AND GENEVIEVE IS PRODUCING AN AREA OF FRESH TO
STRONG WINDS FROM 12N TO 18N W OF 135W WITH SEAS TO 9 FT. THESE
MARINE CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST TO MOVE WWD IN TANDEM WITH
GENEVIEVE.

TROPICAL WEATHER DISCUSSION…UPDATED
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1605 UTC SAT JUL 26 2014

TROPICAL WEATHER DISCUSSION FOR THE EASTERN PACIFIC OCEAN FROM
THE EQUATOR TO 32N…EAST OF 140W. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS
BASED ON SATELLITE IMAGERY…WEATHER OBSERVATIONS…RADAR…AND
METEOROLOGICAL ANALYSIS.

BASED ON 1200 UTC SURFACE ANALYSIS AND SATELLITE IMAGERY THROUGH
1500 UTC.

…SPECIAL FEATURES…

GENEVIEVE WAS DOWNGRADED TO A TROPICAL DEPRESSION AT 26/1500
UTC. AT THIS TIME…IT IS CENTERED NEAR 12.2N 137.0W MOVING WEST
OR 270 DEGREES AT 4 KT. ESTIMATED MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE IS
1006 MB. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WIND SPEED IS 30 KT WITH GUSTS TO 40
KT. MOST OF THE CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY IS DISPLACED TO THE E OF THE
EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CENTER. NUMEROUS MODERATE TO ISOLATED STRONG
CONVECTION IS NOTED WITHIN 90 NM E SEMICIRCLE. AN EARLIER ASCAT
PASS SUGGESTS THAT THE CIRCULATION IS BECOMING ELONGATED. SOME
GRADUAL WEAKENING IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS AND THE
DEPRESSION IS FORECAST TO BECOME A REMNANT LOW IN ABOUT 3 DAYS.
PLEASE SEE LATEST NHC FORECAST/ADVISORY UNDER AWIPS/WMO HEADERS
MIATCMEP2/WTPZ22 KNHC FOR MORE DETAILS.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION EIGHT-E IS CENTERED NEAR 14.4N 107.3W AT
26/1500 UTC MOVING NORTHWEST OR 310 DEGREES AT 13 KT. A SLIGHTLY
FASTER WEST-NORTHWEST TO NORTHWEST MOTION IS EXPECTED DURING THE
NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. ESTIMATED MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE IS 1007
MB. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WIND SPEED IS 30 KT WITH GUSTS TO 40 KT. A
LARGE AREA OF MODERATE TO STRONG CONVECTION IS TO THE N WITHIN
240 NM OF THE CENTER. SOME STRENGTHENING IS POSSIBLE DURING THE
NEXT 48 HOURS…AND THE DEPRESSION COULD BECOME A TROPICAL STORM
LATER TODAY. PLEASE SEE LATEST NHC FORECAST/ADVISORY UNDER
AWIPS/WMO HEADERS MIATCMEP3/WTPZ23 KNHC FOR MORE DETAILS.

FIRST-LIGHT VISIBLE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT THE CENTER OF A 1007 MB
LOW PRES LOCATED NEAR 14.5N127W IS TOTALLY EXPOSED AND ABOUT 60
NM TO THE NW OF THE DEEP CONVECTION. UPPER LEVEL WINDS ARE
FORECAST TO BECOME HIGHLY UNFAVORABLE FOR TROPICAL CYCLONE
FORMATION TONIGHT OR SUNDAY. CURRENTLY…THE NHC TROPICAL
WEATHER OUTLOOK GIVES THIS LOW PRES AREA A HIGH CHANCE OF
DEVELOPING INTO A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS. AN
AREA OF FRESH TO STRONG WINDS WITH SEAS TO 11 FT IS EXPECTED TO
BE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.

…TROPICAL WAVES…

A WEAK TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 117W/118W FROM 10N TO 20N MOVING
WESTWARD 15 KT. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED MODERATE CONVECTION IS
NOTED WHERE THE WAVE MEETS THE MONSOON TROUGH…MAINLY FROM 08N
TO 10N BETWEEN 115W AND 122W.

…INTERTROPICAL CONVERGENCE ZONE/MONSOON TROUGH…
MONSOON TROUGH EXTENDS FROM 09N84W TO 07N95W TO TROPICAL
DEPRESSION EIGHT-E NEAR 14N107W TO 10N118W TO 1007 MB LOW
PRESSURE CENTER NEAR 14.5N127W TO 12N134W. SCATTERED MODERATE
ISOLATED STRONG FROM 06N TO 08N E OF 81W AND FROM 09N TO 13N
BETWEEN 87W AND 95W. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED MODERATE FROM 08N TO
10N BETWEEN 115W AND 122W.

…DISCUSSION…

AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH REMAINS ACROSS THE NORTH-CENTRAL PORTION
OF THE DISCUSSION AREA N OF 15N W OF 125W. THE MEAN AXIS EXTENDS
FROM A CYCLONIC CIRCULATION NEAR 34N131W TO 30N129W TO 16N138W.
MODERATE SUBSIDENCE WITH DRY AND STABLE AIR AT THE MIDDLE AND
UPPER LEVELS IS OVER MUCH OF THE AREA N OF 18N W OF 125W. UPPER
LEVEL DIFFLUENT FLOW IS ENHANCING CONVECTION ALONG THE MONSOON
TROUGH MAINLY W OF 120W. A LARGE UPPER LEVEL ANTICYCLONIC
CIRCULATION CENTERED OVER THE TEXAS PANHANDLE EXTENDS A RIDGE
ACROSS NORTHERN MEXICO AND NORTHERN BAJA CALIFORNIA TO NEAR
27N118W. AN UPPER CYCLONIC CIRCULATION IS S OF THE RIDGE NEAR
22N115W WITH A TROUGH EXTENDING S TO NEAR 17N114W. AN INVERTED
TROUGH CONTINUES FROM THIS POINT TO 08N113W. AN ANTICYCLONIC
CIRCULATION IS NEAR 17N102W. STRONG SOUTHERLY WINDS ARE NOTED
BETWEEN THESE TWO UPPER LEVEL FEATURES. N TO NE FLOW ALOFT
DOMINATES THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST REGION E OF 100W.

GULF OF PAPAGAYO…STRONG TO NEAR GALE FORCE TRADE WINDS OVER
THE SW CARIBBEAN WILL RESULT IN ANOTHER PULSE OF 20-25 KT WINDS
THROUGH THE GULF OF PAPAGAYO OVERNIGHT TONIGHT INTO SUN MORNING.
THESE WINDS WILL PULSE AGAIN SUN NIGHT INTO MON MORNING. SEAS
WILL BUILD TO 9 FT DURING EACH PULSE. WINDS ARE FORECAST TO BE
20 KT OR LESS BY SUN NIGHT.

GULF OF TEHUANTEPEC…ANOTHER PULSE OF NLY WINDS OF 20-25 KT WAS
NOTED THIS MORNING. WINDS ARE FORECAST TO BE 20 KT OR LESS
THIS AFTERNOON.

OTHERWISE A SURFACE RIDGE DOMINATES THE REMAINDER OF THE AREA N
OF 15N W OF 115W. PRES GRADIENT BETWEEN THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY
OF THE RIDGE AND GENEVIEVE IS PRODUCING AN AREA OF FRESH TO
STRONG WINDS FROM 12N TO 18N W OF 135W WITH SEAS TO 9 FT. THESE
MARINE CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST TO MOVE WWD IN TANDEM WITH
GENEVIEVE.

Ireland: 13-year-old boy drowned at reservoir in Drogheda, highlighting the dangers of swimming in areas without lifeguards – Published 240714 2200z

Irish Coast Guard:

Tough call out for emergency services today including Coast Guard units from Drogheda and Rescue 116. RIP.

Boyne Fishermans Rescue and Recovery:

24:07:2014 Drowning accident at reservoir

The Boyne Fishermen’s Rescue & Recovery Service where alerted to a accident today at 16.30 hrs. The call reported a possible drowning accident in the Rose Hall Reservoir in Drogheda.

Our emergency paging system was activated and our mobile unit was dispatched immediately to the scene of the accident. Meanwhile our underwater search team had been alerted and were on route also.

The underwater search team deployed two divers into the reservoir and shortly afterwards they recovered the body of a local Teenager.

The drowning this evening at Rose Hall Reservoir has brought great sadness and shock to the people of Drogheda.

Rose Hall is can be a busy spot in good weather, but it is also very dangerous.

Irish Water Safety has made repeated appeals for awareness of the dangers of swimming in areas without lifeguards, such as quarries, reservoirs, rivers and lakes.

It was a combined effort at this evenings recovery, alongside the Boyne Fishermen’s Rescue & Recovery Service were Drogheda Coast Guard, Drogheda Fire and Rescue, Drogheda Ambulance Service and Drogheda Gardai.

Members of the Boyne Fishermens Rescue and Recovery Service wish to extend its sympathies to the family and friends of the teenager”

A thirteen-year-old boy has drowned in a lake in Drogheda.

The boy was swimming with two friends when he got into difficulty in a reservoir in Rosehall

The boy was swimming with two friends when he got into difficulty in a reservoir in Rosehall in the north of the town this afternoon.

Two girls raised the alarm and the Dundalk Coastguard Unit was alerted at 3.50pm this afternoon.

Members of the coastguard searched the water where the boy had disappeared but were initially unable to find him.

Divers from the Boyne Fishermans Rescue and Recovery joined the search and after almost an hour of searching he was found.

Dermot McConnoran, officer in charge of the Dundalk coastguard unit, said a second tragedy was avoided after another boy went into the reservoir to help his friend and also got into difficulty.

Richard Skelly, a member of Boyne Fishermen Rescue and Recovery said it was heartbreaking knowing the boys parents were behind a cordon while the search took place.

He added it’s “a terrible tragedy and the whole community is in shock this evening”.

Body of 13-year-old boy recovered from water in Drogheda

THE BODY OF a 13-year-old boy has been recovered from a water treatment plant in Drogheda, Co Louth.

( Past Positions and Intensities )

Notes

  • The symbol low pressure area symbol will be displayed when the tropical cyclone is expected to weaken into a low pressure area or transform into an extratropical low.
  • Past track is in black, forecast track is in red.
  • The accuracies, based on average errors, of the latest analysed and forecast positions are of the order of:
    Analysed Position 30 km
    24-hour forecast position 150 km
    48-hour forecast position 250 km
    72-hour forecast position 350 km
  • The centres of the red, blue and grey circles are the forecast positions of the tropical cyclone at different times (as shown at the upper left corner of the figure). The radii of the circles are the respective accuracies.
  • The tropical cyclone track, analysed positions and maximum sustained wind near centre are based on Hong Kong Observatory’s tropical cyclone warning for shipping issued eight times a day at 0:30, 3:30, 6:30, 9:30, 12:30, 15:30, 18:30 and 21:30 HKT, about one and a half hours after the time of observation. The analysed positions incorporate additional information derived from surface and upper-air data and may therefore be slightly different from the real-time satellite or radar-based provisional positions given in the hourly bulletins for public. Meanwhile, the webpage will also display other information, including distance and bearing of the tropical cyclone relative to Hong Kong.
  • The past tropical cyclone track, analysed positions and maximum sustained wind near centre may be updated when additional data is received.
  • Short-term erratic departures of the tropical cyclone from the general direction of movement may occur from time to time. These departures are partly due to uncertainties in locating the centre of the tropical cyclone, and partly due to actual short-term variations in the direction and speed of movement of the tropical cyclone itself.

China: City of Yumen sealed off, 151 people quarantined, after Bubonic Plague death – Published 230714 1111z

Plague kills man in NW China

LANZHOU, July 18 (Xinhua) — A 38-year-old man in northwest China’s Gansu Province has died of plague, local authorities said.

The case was reported in Yumen City under the jurisdiction of Jiuquan City, the Jiuquan government said on Thursday. The man, who died on Wednesday, had been in contact with a dead marmot, which is of the squirrel family.

A total of 151 people who had close contact with the man have been put in quarantine and are under medical observation. None of them has reported syndromes of the disease so far, according to the local government.

The National Health and Family Planning Commission has sent disease prevention and control specialists to Yumen to prevent the plague from spreading.

Plague is categorized as a Class A infectious disease, the most serious under China’s Law on the Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Diseases.

Chinese city sealed off after bubonic plague death

30,000 residents of Yumen are not being allowed to leave and 151 people have been placed in quarantine after man’s death
  • theguardian.com, Tuesday 22 July 2014 12.59 BST

A Chinese city has been sealed off and 151 people have been placed in quarantine since last week after a man died of bubonic plague, state media said.

The 30,000 residents of Yumen, in the north-western province of Gansu, are not being allowed to leave, and police at roadblocks on the perimeter of the city are telling motorists to find alternative routes, China Central Television (CCTV) said.

A 38-year-old man died last Wednesday, the report said, after he had been in contact with a dead marmot, a small furry animal related to the squirrel. No further plague cases have been reported.

CCTV said officials were not allowing anyone to leave. The China Daily newspaper said four quarantine sectors had been set up in the city.

“The city has enough rice, flour and oil to supply all its residents for up to one month,” CCTV added. “Local residents and those in quarantine are all in stable condition.” No further cases have been reported.

Bubonic plague is a bacterial infection best known for the Black Death, a virulent epidemic that killed tens of millions of people in 14th-century Europe. Primarily an animal illness, it is extremely rare in humans.

The US Centres for Disease Control (CDC) says modern antibiotics are effective in treating plague, but that without prompt treatment the disease can cause serious illness or death.

Bubonic plague

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the disease in general. For information about the medieval European plague, see Black Death
Bubonic plague is a zoonotic disease, circulating mainly in fleas on small rodents, and is one of three types of bacterial infections caused by Yersinia pestis (formerly known as Pasteurella pestis), that belongs to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Without treatment, the bubonic plague kills about two thirds of infected humans within four days.

The term bubonic plague is derived from the Greek word βουβών, meaning “groin”. Swollen lymph nodes (buboes) especially occur in the armpit and groin in persons suffering from bubonic plague. Bubonic plague was often used synonymously for plague, but it does in fact refer specifically to an infection that enters through the skin and travels through the lymphatics, as is often seen in flea-borne infections.

Bubonic plague—along with the septicemic plague and the pneumonic plague, which are the two other manifestations of Y. pestis—is commonly believed to be the cause of the Black Death that swept through Europe in the 14th century and killed an estimated 25 million people, or 30–60% of the European population.[1] Around the Mediterranean Region, summers seemed to be the season when the disease took place. While in Europe, people found the disease most occurring in the autumn.[2] Because the plague killed so many of the working population, wages rose and some historians have seen this as a turning point in European economic development.[3][4]

France: Tornado kills 2 campers in Ardèche and Gard. 16 injured across Rhone-Alpes – Published 210714 1920z (UTC)

Two campers died when a tornado ripped through neighbouring campsites in Ardèche and Gard yesterday, on a weekend that saw much of France battered by storms.

A 50-year-old camper was killed when the tornado touched down at a campsite in Saint-Just d’Ardèche, causing trees to fall on dozens of tents. And a 46-year-old woman was fatally injured when the same tornado felled a tree at a site in Saint-Paulet-de-Caisson.

A total 40 campers were evacuated as the twister damaged a number of trees. The twin tragedies in Ardèche and Gard were caused as storms that swept across France passed through Cévennes and Nimes before returning to the Rhône Gard.

Elsewhere, hailstones the size of golf balls left 10 people injured and forced organisers to call a halt to a planned concert by Vanessa Paradis at the Grand Souk festival in Riberac, Dordogne, on Saturday.

Meanwhile, 1,000 jazz fans had to be evacuated from a festival concert in Saint-Emilion. Planned events on Sunday were also cancelled as volunteers cleared up after the storm.

Six scouts from Oise were taken to hospital in Gironde, on Saturday, after suffering lightning burns while on a camping trip in Saint-Simon de Pellouaille. Across Aquitaine, 8,500 households were left without power as storms swept through the region on Saturday night.

The tornado hit a campsite in the town of Saint-Just-d’Ardeche, pulling down trees and destroying caravans and tents on Sunday afternoon.

A 42-year-old Frenchman died when a tree fell on him as the tornado hit. Five others were left injured although their conditions are not believed to be life-threatening.

Captain François Degrange, from the local police told AFP that trees had been brought down over a three to four kilometer radius.

“I have never seen that in my career before,” he said.

In a separate incident a woman was also killed by a falling tree at a campsite at Saint-Paulet-de-Caisson in the neighbouring Gard department.

According to Midi-Libre newspaper a baby was also injured as the storms hit and had to be rushed to hospital.

Hundreds of campers in the region have had to be evacuated.

The storms, which brought the mini-heatwave to an abrupt end, were accompanied by gale force winds and hailstones the size of tennis balls in some regions.

Nine departments in eastern France remained on alert for storms on Sunday evening, while other areas of north eastern France were on alert for heavy rain and floods.

Tropical Cyclone Bulletin

Here is the latest Tropical Cyclone Bulletin issued by the Hong Kong Observatory.

All signals were cancelled at 3:40 a.m.

At 4 a.m., Severe Typhoon Rammasun was centred about 540 kilometres west-southwest of Hong Kong (near 21.3 degrees north 109.1 degrees east) and is forecast to move northwest or west-northwest at about 22 kilometres per hour across Beibu Wan towards the coast of Guangxi.

Rammasun is moving across Beibu Wan and will soon make landfall over the coast of Guangxi. As Rammasun gradually moves away from Hong Kong, local winds continue to moderate. Yet there will still be squally showers today.

Since there will be swells, members of the public should remain on the alert.

Notes

  • The symbol low pressure area symbol will be displayed when the tropical cyclone is expected to weaken into a low pressure area or transform into an extratropical low.
  • Past track is in black, forecast track is in red.
  • The accuracies, based on average errors, of the latest analysed and forecast positions are of the order of:
    Analysed Position 30 km
    24-hour forecast position 150 km
    48-hour forecast position 250 km
    72-hour forecast position 350 km

     

  • The centres of the red, blue and grey circles are the forecast positions of the tropical cyclone at different times (as shown at the upper left corner of the figure). The radii of the circles are the respective accuracies.
  • The analysed tropical cyclone position (the symbol tropical cyclone symbol ) is based on Hong Kong Observatory’s hourly bulletin for public derived from the real-time satellite or radar-based positions.
  • The tropical cyclone track, analysed positions and maximum sustained wind near centre are updated every hour. Meanwhile, the webpage will also display other information, including distance and bearing of the tropical cyclone relative to Hong Kong, and forecast moving direction and speed.
  • The past tropical cyclone track, analysed positions and maximum sustained wind near centre may be updated when additional data is received.
  • Short-term erratic departures of the tropical cyclone from the general direction of movement may occur from time to time. These departures are partly due to uncertainties in locating the centre of the tropical cyclone, and partly due to actual short-term variations in the direction and speed of movement of the tropical cyclone itself.

Rammasun has rapidly intensified into a Category 4 Super Typhoon (1-min sustained winds) and is now affecting Hainan and other parts of Southern China. This highly catastrophic storm is one of the strongest cyclones to ever hit Southern China and will affect as much as 20 million people over the next 24 hours.

Watch WxCaster PAT’s latest Video Update below for more in-depth analysis and forecasts for Super Typhoon Rammasun.

China Meteorological Administration (CMA) confirmed landfall at the city of Wenchang on the Northeastern part of Hainan Island. A weather station in this city recorded winds of 180kph to as much as 220kph! The city of Haikou is also reporting sustained typhoon-force winds of up to 130kph and gusts of up to 165kph! Another highly-populated city that this system is affecting is Zhanjiang which is home to nearly 1.2 million people (nearly 7 million people metro-wide).

CCTV has now reported at least one confirmed death due to the storm. 

Radar Image from CMA

Latest radar image out of Hainan shows the perfectly symmetrical eye now moving into Leizhou Peninsula. Widespread heavy rains

Via CCTV

are affecting much of Hainan and parts of Guangdong Province. Outer rain bands are moving as far away as Hong Kong bringing light to moderate rains in the area. We are expecting anywhere from 200 to as much as 300mm of rainfall over the next 24 hours for Hainan and Leizhou. This will only compound to the already damaging winds in the area. Furthermore, coastal areas will also be dealing with significant storm surge especially along the eastern portions of Leizhou Peninsula.

For the latest radar images and warnings from China, please click HERE (CMA Website)

As many as 40,000 people have been told to evacuate ahead of the storm in the area.

 

Super Typhoon Rammasun will continue moving slowly northwestward and will continue to bring damaging weather conditions across Southern China for the next 12 hours. It will move into the Gulf of Tonkin and will weaken slightly but will still be a significant threat for Guangxi Province and Northern Vietnam.

Storm

Before the storms impact on China Typhoon Glenda (Sawyerean name Gøring, International name Rammasun) struck Metro Manila and is probably the strongest to hit Metro Manila since Typhoon Milenyo of 2006.

The storm has now caused at least 64 deaths, as tallied by the National Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

In Metro Manila, damage has been extensive. Until now power is yet to be restored in many areas, and Meralco announced of rotating blackout as the power supply in Luzon areas are insufficient to meet demands, due to damaged transmission lines and substations.

The rotating blackouts will ensue until the power supply stabilized, and Meralco has not yet established a definite timetable for this.

The strongest winds pummeled the Metro between 6 to 9 in the morning, where ferocious winds battered the metro. Lots of old trees, some as old as hundred years, fell, and many power lines were knocked out.

We’ll continue to have updates on Rammasun as well as on the newest Tropical Storm (Matmo or Bagyong Henry) out in the Philippine Sea. Please stay safe and always heed the warnings of your local officials!

At least one person killed after southern China’s strongest typhoon in four decades: state media

Updated 1937 UTC 18 July 2014

China’s state media says at least one person has been killed after southern China’s strongest typhoon in four decades made landfall in Hainan.

The National Meteorological Centre says Super Typhoon Rammasun ploughed into Wengtian, a town on the northeastern tip of the island, yesterday afternoon.

It was packing winds of up to 216 kilometres an hour.

Ahead of the typhoon’s arrival, hundreds of thousands of people were evacuated and hundreds of flights cancelled.

Super Typhoon Rammasun has already killed at least 54 people in the Philippines and is bringing heavy rains.

 

The Hainan government says it has ordered fishermen back to port while many flights, and all train services, are cancelled.

State television says access to all scenic spots on the island, which styles itself as China’s answer to Hawaii, had been closed, and 30,000 people evacuated from low-lying coastal areas.

Premier Li Keqiang, describing the situation as severe, says people’s lives must be put first.

“Prevent any accidents that may be caused (by the typhoon) and reduce disaster losses as much as possible,” the Hainan government cites Premier Li as saying.

Typhoons are common at this time of year in the South China Sea, picking up strength from the warm waters and dissipating over land.

Flooding across a large swathe of southern China in the past week has already killed at least 34 people.

Preparing for a storm

  • Prepare an emergency kit based on the list here.
  • Make a note of the location of any item not in your kit.

During a Storm

  • Monitor your local emergency broadcaster for updates, warnings and advice
  • While conditions are severe, remain indoors and stay clear of windows
  • Make contact with neighbours and family members to ensure they’re safe and prepared
  • If you’re in your car, don’t drive into water without knowing the strength of the current and depth
  • Slow down, turn on your headlights and be aware of hazards on the roads such as powerlines and trees

After a Storm

  • Stay clear of creeks, drains and other water ways, as there’s a risk of flooding including flash floods
  • Be careful of fallen trees, powerlines and damaged buildings
  • Don’t go sightseeing, you could hamper the efforts of emergency services
  • Check on your neighbours as soon as it’s safe to do so

Typhoon Rammasun (Glenda) Evening Update | July 16, 2014 – WestPacWx

Watch WxCaster PAT’s Latest Video Update on Typhoon Rammasun (Bagyong Glenda):

Typhoon Rammasun is now moving away from Luzon, Philippines and is heading towards Southern China. Residual rain showers are still lingering across Luzon but we expect those to become more spotty and gradually taper off by tomorrow. Some areas are still under Signal #1 however: Zambales, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bataan, Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite, Lubang Island, Pangasinan, and Metro Manila.

Meanwhile, Typhoon Rammasun is now moving across the South China Sea (West Philippine Sea) and is forecast to re-intensify as it moves across the open waters. Forecasts from different agencies are bringing the typhoon towards the island of Hainan by Friday afternoon and then into Northern Vietnam (or perhaps in Guangxi Province in China) by Saturday afternoon. Heavy rains and damaging winds will threaten the areas mentioned later this week.

We are also watching a developing Low Pressure Area (LPA) east of the Philippines. Some computer models are showing some development for this disturbance and so we will continue monitoring this area for intensification.

Impacts from the Storm in Luzon

At least ten deaths (via reuters) have been reported across the Philippines Wednesday due to Typhoon Rammasun / Glenda. This storm brought typhoon strength winds across southern Luzon forcing at least 370,000 people to evacuate ahead of the storm.   The city of Manila was practically shut down following all finical markets, offices and schools being closed on Wednesday.   A 25-year-old woman was killed when she was hit by a falling electricity pole as Rammasun hit the east coast on Tuesday, the Philippine disaster agency said. A pregnant woman was killed when a house wall collapsed in Lucena City in Quezon province south of the capital.   Wide spread blackouts were also reported across Luzon including the Metro Manila area where at least 85% of the city lost power.   A Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200 suffered a hole on its left wing when wind gusts pushed the aircraft five metres across the tarmac at Manila airport, hitting equipment parked nearby.   At least four southeastern provinces on Luzon declared, or were about to declare, a state of calamity, allowing the local governments to tap emergency relief funds. This includes Albay where the storm made landfall Tuesday Evening. More than 200 international and domestic flights have been cancelled.

Typhoon kills 10 in Philippines but eases before heading for China

“(Reuters) – A typhoon killed at least 10 people as it churned across the Philippines and shut down the capital, cutting power and prompting the evacuation of more than 400,000 residents, rescue officials said.

The eye of Typhoon Rammasun, the strongest storm to hit the country this year, passed south of Manila after cutting a path across the main island of Luzon, toppling trees and power lines and causing electrocutions and widespread blackouts.

By Wednesday evening, the storm was easing in the capital and markets and public offices were due to reopen on Thursday. Some schools were to remain closed.

Manila Electric Company (MER.PS) said 76 percent of the area it serves was without power, compared with 86 percent earlier in the day.

“Our weather is improving as the typhoon is moving further away,” Rene Paciente of the weather bureau said, adding storm alerts in various part of the country were lifted or lowered.

The number of evacuated residents had reached 409,000, Wilma Cabrera, the Social Welfare Assistant Secretary, told Reuters.

Many of those forced from their homes were in the eastern province of Albay, the first to be hit by the typhoon, the disaster agency said. They were taken to schools, gymnasiums and town halls for shelter.

Officials said 460,000 had been affected by the storm.

Major roads across Luzon were blocked by debris, fallen trees, electricity poles and tin roofs ripped off village houses. The storm uprooted trees in the capital, where palm trees lining major arteries were bent over by the wind as broken hoardings bounced down the streets.

Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio Singson and Admiral Alexander Pama, the executive director of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, surveyed the typhoon-affected areas by helicopter.

“I am happily surprised because of the minimal casualties and damage,” Singson said, adding the typhoon had passed through the most populated area of the country, with about 17 million people living in its path.

Singson and Pama said the government was more prepared after the devastation caused by Super Typhoon Haiyan in November, evacuating people at risk in coastal and landslide-prone areas well before the typhoon made landfall.

Parts of the Philippines are still recovering from Haiyan, one of the biggest cyclones known to have made landfall anywhere. It killed more than 6,100 in the central provinces, many in tsunami-like sea surges, and left millions homeless.

Tropical Storm Risk, which monitors cyclones, downgraded Rammasun to a category-one storm on a scale of one to five as it headed northwest into the South China Sea. Haiyan was category five. A category-one storm has maximum sustained winds of 95 mph (153 kph) But it predicted Rammasun would gain in strength to category-three within a couple of days, picking up energy from the warm sea as it heads for the Chinese island of Hainan.

 

TACLOBAN HIT AGAIN

The storm brought sea surges to Manila Bay and prompted disaster officials to evacuate slum-dwellers on the capital’s outskirts.

Rhea Catada, who works for Oxfam in Tacloban, which suffered the brunt of Haiyan, said thousands of people in tents and coastal villages had been moved to higher ground.

“They are scared because their experiences during Haiyan last year are still fresh,” she said. “Now they are evacuating voluntarily and leaving behind their belongings.”

Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman said 5,335 families, or nearly 27,000 people, had been affected in Tacloban. Some had returned to the Astrodome, where thousands sought shelter and dozens drowned during storm surges in the November disaster.

A woman of 25 was killed when she was hit by a falling electricity pole as Rammasun hit the east coast on Tuesday, the disaster agency said. A pregnant woman was killed when a house wall collapsed in Lucena City south of Manila.

Nearly 400 flights were grounded during a four-hour closure of Manila airport. Two airliners suffered minor damage when gusts blew them into nearby obstacles, airport officials said.

Train services in the capital were suspended because of the lack of power. Ferry services were suspended, including to the holiday island of Boracay where 300 tourists were stranded.

UK: Public warned about the dangers of ‘tombstoning’ – Published 080714 2115z

Police, Coastguards and councils are warning the public about the dangers of ‘tombstoning’ in Dorset.

 

Young thrillseekers have been putting their lives at risk by jumping into the sea from a great height – often from the top of cliffs.

 

There have been reports of youngsters jumping off the East pier at West Bay, narrowly missing boats coming in and out of Bridport Harbour.

 

Tombstoning can be dangerous for a number of reasons: water depth alters with the tide and it may be shallower than it seems, submerged objects like rocks may not be visible, the shock of cold water may make it difficult to swim and strong currents can rapidly sweep people away.

 

PC Scott McGregor of Bridport Police, said: “We have had several reports over the last few months, where concerns have been raised by the public about the activity of people jumping off the pier at West Bay. On one occasion colleagues attended to prevent individuals from putting themselves and boat users in the harbour at risk.”

 

Nic Lonsdale, Duty Watch Manager for Portland Coastguard, said: “Jumping from piers, cliffs, rocks or other structures into the sea can be very dangerous.

 

“What was a deep pool at lunchtime might be a shallow puddle by teatime due to tidal conditions and you do not know what other hazards might be under the surface.

 

“According to the Coastguard database, since 2005 there have been 20 deaths and 76 serious injuries caused by tombstoning in the UK.”

 

Cllr Robert Gould, Leader of West Dorset District Council, said: “Bridport has a very active harbour with boats moving in and out on a regular basis, we strongly advise people against this activity as it is both irresponsible and potentially dangerous.”

 

Figures from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency show that in the past five years, seven people have been badly hurt from tombstoning in Dorset.

 

To report a dangerous incident along the coastline, please call 999 and ask for the Coastguard. – MCA

Western Japan Braces for Neoguri, Forecast and Impacts

 

Vis Sat

Typhoon Neoguri is leaving behind the southern Japanese islands Tuesday night and now sets its eyes ahead towards the southern coast of Kyushu.

Several thousand residents from the islands southern coastlines have been told to evacuate ahead of Typhoon Neoguri due to the threat of storm surge near the coast and flash flooding farther inland. Heavy rains due to the rainy season front have already saturated the ground here.  In parts of southern Kyushu up to 200mm of rainfall is expected through Wednesday evening.

Winds in the Amani islands off the southern coast of Kyushu could see gust as high as 126kph through Wednesday Evening. 11 meter high waves are expected on the Amani islands.

TCCOR 1 Will likely be issued for the military in Sasebo. If not typhoon warnings via JMA are still in place.

Damaging winds as high as 130kph gusting to 185kph at landfall in Kagoshima is in the forecast by Thursday morning as Typhoon Neoguri makes landfall along the southern Coast of Kyushu as the equivalant of a Category 1 storm. 

These winds will be over a small area though and the bulk of the area will see 90kph sustained winds.

In Kagoshima and Miyazaki up to 400-500mm of rainfall is likely as moisture wraps around Neoguri is pushed on shore in to the mountains of the Western Japan. Flash flooding, landslides and rapid river level rise will be a high threat here.

Even though the storm in Okinawa is very dangerous the overall impact on infrastructure and the risk of flooding and landslides will likely result in more damage across Kyushu despite it being a slightly weaker storm.

Flood Threat in Western Japan

Farther north the rain will be the biggest issue though. Across much of Honshu flooding will be a problem through Friday including in the Tokyo area river level rise will be one of the main threats from this storm.

The rainfall in the Kanto Plain will likely start by Thursday evening and last through Friday as the Center of Neoguri pushes over mainland Japan.

At this time no cancellations of flights in Tokyo have been made but anyone who plans on traveling should be prepared for the risk of delays cancellations.

Expect Neoguri to weaken rapidly over Japan. It will still carry with it a deluge of moisture but the center of circulation will be torn apart over the mountains of Japan.

Tragedy in Kochi

High waves ahead of Neoguri caused a capsize off of Kochi Prefecture in Shikoku resulting in one death on Tuesday. Waves at the time of the capzise were 4 meters high according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.

UK: London hero plunged into River Thames to save distressed man – Praised by Tower RNLI Lifeboat crew – Published 070714 1845z

A have-a-go hero plunged into the River Thames this morning to help a man who moments earlier had jumped from a bridge at the start of the capital’s rush hour.

London crew praise ‘good Samaritan’, Ben Corr, who entered river to save distressed man 07 July 2014 (Photo credit: Ben Corr via RNLI)

 Lifeboat crew members from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution launched just after 7am today after reports from London Coastguard that a man was in the River Thames, drifting dangerously close to the base of the London Eye attraction

The lifeboat crew arrived just moments later to find that two men were in the water; one had entered the river to help another man who it is believed had deliberately jumped from the pedestrian footpath alongside Charing Cross rail bridge.

Ben Corr, a 36 year old statistician, had been running to work on the South Bank when he was flagged down by a woman. He took up the story: ‘The lady was quite shaken up – she was pointing to a man in the river and said she’d just seen him jump from the bridge. She was clutching a life ring but wanted some help in throwing it out to him.

‘I did try but he was quite far out and the ring missed him. Despite our efforts to coerce him towards it, he was just flailing in the water. At first I held back because I know the emergency services always advise the public not to enter the water in times like that, in case they get into danger as well. But after a moment I decided I had to – so I climbed down onto the foreshore, entered the river, and swam across to him.’

Ben said the man was very distressed and was pushing him away at first, but eventually agreed to take the life ring: ‘I pulled him back to the south bank wall but there was no way to get out. The woman who had stopped me explained that she had called the police and barely a minute later the lifeboat crew arrived.’

Tower lifeboat crew – consisting of helmsmen Craig Burn and Stuart Morrison, and volunteer Jenny Barnett – pulled both men aboard and returned to Tower

RNLI lifeboat station, situated beneath Waterloo Bridge. Craig said: ‘We got them as they were floating down by the base of the London Eye. There is some machinery there and we were concerned about them floating close to that, but we got to them in time.

‘We met with our ambulance service colleagues back at the station and they treated the man who had entered from the bridge. He was cold and shaken and still distressed, and was taken away by ambulance crews for further treatment.

‘Ben stayed with us for a short while and we gave him blankets and lots of tea and biscuits. Ben is right that we don’t advise people to go into the water to help people, but he assessed the situation and made a measured, very brave decision to go in. What he did was hugely commendable and we take our hat – or helmet – off to him: there is one man out there today in London who would surely have lost his life if it hadn’t been for Ben and the lifeboat crew.’

Published on Jul 7, 2014

Running along the South Bank this morning, Ben Corr was expecting a normal Monday in the office. That changed when he was alerted to a man struggling in the Thames. After trying to throw a life ring to the casualty, Ben carefully weighed up the situation & made the decision to go in and swim to the casualty. Meanwhile, Tower lifeboat crew had been alerted & were heading up river. They found both men floating near the London Eye and safety pulled them on board. We don’t advise people to carry out rescues themselves, but Ben made a very measured and selfless decision to go in – and for that we take our hat off to him – RNLI

Miracle baby Megan survives miscarriage and abortion pill

** EMBARGOED UNTIL 3PM SUNDAY 6/07 - PLEASE NO ONLINE USE UNTIL THEN ** Baby Megan Hui. Newbridge, Co. Kildare, Ireland. See SWNS story SWMIRACLE: A mum who was grieving for her miscarried baby was astonished when she found out she was still pregnant with the baby's TWIN -- who also survived an ABORTION. Mum Michelle Hui, 31, tragically had a miscarriage while walking to work and lost her baby before she was able to get to hospital. Five scans confirmed Michelle and husband Ross, 33, had lost their little one at just six weeks and two days and she was given an abortion pill to make sure nothing was left. But days later just as devastated Michelle was being prepared for a traumatic final procedure to clear her uterus, a preparatory scan revealed a tiny heartbeat. Baby Megan, now 18 weeks old (Picture: SWNS)

Michelle Hui was six weeks and two days into her pregnancy when she suffered a miscarriage while walking to the train station.

A series of scans confirmed the loss and she had to take two abortion pills to clear her uterus. Despite this, when the mother of two returned to the Rotunda Hospital in Dublin to have a final treatment to complete the process, a scan revealed a heartbeat.

She hadn’t known it, but had originally been pregnant with twins, with Megan incredibly surviving the initial miscarriage and the pills.

Michelle said: “The doctor went out and came back in with a more senior doctor and he did the scan again and he said, ‘You are not going to believe it, we’ve got a heartbeat’. It was the best feeling ever.
