Hurricane Florence

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Sep 12, 2018 5:14 pm

Getting this ready for when information hits:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Florence

UPDATE 9/13 6:56 PM: So far:
* Primary broadcast site for today was Myrtle Beach, SC. I had predicted elsewhere that the press would primarily camp out where Mercury was exactly angular, and it's 0°15' from MC in the Arilunar for Myrtle Beach.
* The outer band of winds have been impacting the Carolinas in the 6-9 PM EDT period.
* It looks like landfall might be around Wilmington, NC sometime after sunrise tomorrow.
* Jupiter in the Arilunar lines all along the eastern coast. The rain and storm surge from this hurricane are expected to be enormous, especially impactful because the soil was already saturated in Virginia and the Carolinas and the Hurricane Flo is expected to more or less stop ("stall") over one area and just keep dumping up to 40" of rain in one spot.
* After it moves inland, the target areas are Georgia, Virginia, and Maryland.

Hurricane Florence landfall
September 14, 2018, 7:15 AM EDT, near Wrightsville Beach, NC

I was hoping that by the time I got to work we'd have exact longitude and latitude of the landfall sight, but we'll go with what we have so far. It made landfall this morning as a very slow-moving Category 1 hurricane (maximum sustained winds of 90 mph), driving 10-foot storm surges and expected to do enormous damage over the next day or two. - Too bad the National Hurricane Center web site doesn't have the same kind of detailed tracking we have for earthquakes.

Half a million people are without power this morning. The town of New Bern, NC is getting covered extensively by news media this morning because of 150 or so people stranded there and heroic efforts in motion to rescue them.

Landfall was immediately after sunrise. The general aspects in space are consistent with this event - Mercury opposite Neptune and a Venus-Mars-Uranus T-square - but none of them were highlighted exactly where and when landfall occurred. - But look how close Uranus and Pluto contacts to the Capsolar angles were for that exact spot! Overall the charts are excellent, but the daily factors aren't as crash-bang climactic as we usually see. (I've added some PSSIs at the bottom.)

ADDED 10/12: Final casualties: 30 dead directly, and 23 indirectly, from the hurricane. Damages in excess of $45 billion.

And Florence is now degraded to Tropical Storm Florence (winds less than 70 mph). Remember, though, this can be nearly as bad (f not worse) - Tropical Storm Camille was Virginia's worst disaster after, after Hurricane Camille had devastating effect elsewhere. Now we should expect the floods.

As expected, things are worse today than yesterday. Florence, degraded to a tropical storm, is putting more lives at risk with flooding and wht are described as "walls of water" at the coast from the storm surge. Lumberton, NC is facing imminent threat of their river breaking its banks and flooding the city, so workers are trying to shore up protective barriers.

South Carolina is starting to feel renewed effects as Flo flows toward Myrtle Beach.
