Rain Brings Floods, Airport Delays in U.S. Northeast
July 13 (Bloomberg) -- Heavy rain is moving into New York and the U.S. Northeast, delaying air traffic and prompting flood watches and advisories in Boston and Philadelphia.
A wall of steady rain pocketed with thunderstorms was forecast to sweep into New York after noon, according to Brandon Smith, a weather service meteorologist in Upton, New York.
Airports in New York, Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore reported delays of at least 45 minutes, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. As much as 2 inches of rain had already fallen by noon in eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey, according to the weather service at Mount Holly, New Jersey.
“Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway,” a weather service bulletin said. “The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely.”
A small low pressure system is developing east of a larger area of disturbed weather over the Ohio Valley, according to Brandon. The smaller system is moving through moisture-laden air as it comes east to New York, Philadelphia and Boston.
“It is very efficient at making rain,” Smith said.
A flood advisory was issued for New York City and much of New Jersey, according to the weather service. A flash flood warning was issued for Philadelphia and Trenton.
The water level of Neshaminy Creek at Landhorne, Pennsylvania, rose from just below 1 foot to 3.7 feet in four hours, according to the weather service. The stream is expected to crest at 5 feet by 2 p.m.
Storms expected in Boston, Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut may bring as much as 3 inches of rain in isolated areas, according to the weather service. The possibility of such heavy rain prompted the agency to issue a flash flood watch for those areas.
A flash flood watch means that rapid flooding of urban areas and small streams is possible and drivers should be “prepared for the possibility of significant flooding,” according to the weather service.
Exactly where the storms will leave the most rain is difficult to forecast, said Bill Simpson, a weather service meteorologist in Taunton, Massachusetts. Simpson said that a similar wave of storms last weekend moved through Boston, flooding some areas while leaving others relatively unscathed.
“That is the probably the scenario later this afternoon through the overnight,” Simpson said by telephone.
On July 10, heavy rain and flooding trapped five cars in an underpass in Somerville, Massachusetts, according to the State Police. The rain also blocked a portion of Boston’s Storrow Drive for a time and snarled traffic on Interstate 95 near the Rhode Island state line.
The rain is expected to end tonight in New York and temperatures will be in the high 80s tomorrow, according to the weather service forecast. Temperatures in Philadelphia may reach into the 90s tomorrow and the weather service said it may have to issue an excessive heat advisory later this week.
Earthquake News for the period.
I could only find one Strong Earthquake story to report....
Strong Earthquake Hits Northern Chile
Latin American Herald Tribune
SANTIAGO – Authorities received no reports of casualties or damage after a magnitude-6.1 earthquake shook the northern Chilean regions of Tarapaca, Antofagasta and Atacama.
The powerful temblor that struck at 8:11 p.m. Sunday (0011 GMT Monday) spread alarm among the inhabitants, who flooded telephone lines in their anxiety to get in touch with their families, friends and associates.
The Seismology Institute at the University of Chile said the temblor’s epicenter was located in the Atacama Desert near the city of Calama and some 1,600 kilometers (994 miles) north of Santiago.
The quake’s hypocenter was at a depth of 125.3 kilometers (78 miles) underground, the University of Chile said, while the U.S. Geological Service rated the temblor at magnitude-6.2.
I noticed at the WUWT site the following story concerning Katla, Iceland, no eruption YET, but it may have come to life, just at the start of this Solar Climate Change period....
Katla Making Noise
Katla volcano in iceland sees 14 earthquakes in 48 hours. This may mean nothing, or it may be a prelude to an eruption. Either way it bears watching.
