NBC's Kerry Sanders helps rescue two dolphins who were stranded on Marco Island after a massive storm surge caused by Hurricane Irma | 11 Sept 2017 | NBC's Kerry Sanders was one of many reporters who spent days in Florida warning the public to get out of harm's way as Hurricane Irma barrelled into the Sunshine State. However, he's the only correspondent who, while reporting live, helped rescue two dolphins that became stranded on Marco Island. Sanders was in the middle of reporting on a storm surge that came in on the south side of the island after Irma touched down in the area just before he helped rescue a baby dolphin. A passerby who spotted the baby dolphin walked up to Sanders and asked for his help.

Shorelines drained in eerie effect of Hurricane Irma

Shorelines drained in eerie effect of Hurricane Irma | 10 Sept 2017 | Hurricane Irma's extraordinary strength has caused a seemingly unusual meteorological phenomena: the eerie pushing of water away from shorelines in the Bahamas and the Gulf Coast of Florida. Jason Beisel, a spokesman for the Florida city of Clearwater, described the scene in a tweet on Sunday: "Creepy site - water in Tampa Bay is already being sucked out. This is view from downtown St. Pete waterfront." In Charlotte Harbor, the second largest bay in Florida, Dylan Branscome posted a video on Facebook showing dry, sandy landscape as if the bay had evaporated.

Sea salt around the world is contaminated by plastic, studies show

Sea salt around the world is contaminated by plastic, studies show | 08 Sept 2017 | Sea salt around the world has been contaminated by plastic pollution, adding to experts' fears that microplastics are becoming ubiquitous in the environment and finding their way into the food chain via the salt in our diets. Following this week's revelations in the Guardian about levels of plastic contamination in tap water, new studies have shown that tiny particles have been found in sea salt in the UK, France and Spain, as well as China and now the US. Researchers believe the majority of the contamination comes from microfibres and single-use plastics such as water bottles, items that comprise the majority of plastic waste.

Feds Spend $138,000 Asking Four-Year-Olds About Their 'Internal Sense of Gender Identity'

Feds Spend $138,000 Asking Four-Year-Olds About Their 'Internal Sense of Gender Identity' | 08 Sept 2017 | The National Science Foundation is spending over $130,000 on a study that asks four-year-olds about their "internal sense of gender identity." A grant for a two-year study was awarded to the University of Washington this summer. The project will interview 250 children aged four to six, and their parents, asking a series of questions about "gendered behavior." The study will investigate whether gender theories, such as Gender Schema Theory that blames society on differences between genders, are sufficient for today's "wider range of human gender experiences," where there can be anywhere between 3, 37, and 58 genders.

TORNADOES touch down as Irma brings first hurricane-force winds of 74mph to Florida: Warnings of 15ft storm surges after 6.3m are told to evacuate and 70,000 hunker down in shelters | 09 Sept 2017 | Hurricane Irma began pounding southern Florida on Saturday afternoon as emergency officials warned of 15ft storm surges and tornadoes and told those who have so far ignored evacuation orders: 'You're on your own'. While the hurricane's eye will not directly hit mainland US until Monday, its outer bands have already begun pounding parts of Miami and southeast Florida. Two tornadoes hit Broward County after the National Weather Service issued a tornado watch on Saturday afternoon. There is also a deadly threat of 15ft storm surges with residents being urged not to return home given the enormous outer bands. 'Fifteen feet is devastating and will cover your house,' governor Rick Scott said on Saturday. 'Do not think the storm is over when the wind slows down. The storm surge will rush in and it could kill you.'

Faster than Harvey and bigger than Andrew, Irma is unlike any storm Florida has ever seen

Faster than Harvey and bigger than Andrew, Irma is unlike any storm Florida has ever seen | 08 Sept 2017 | Hurricane Irma continued its deadly sweep through the Caribbean on Friday as residents of Florida waited with frazzled nerves and growing fears over just how bad the storm will be. The Category 4 5 hurricane, with a footprint as big as Texas, is expected to make landfall early Sunday and blow through central Florida with 150-mph winds, reaching Georgia by Monday morning..."All Floridians should be prepared to evacuate soon," Gov. Rick Scott said. "Remember Hurricane Andrew [in 1992] was one of the worst storms in the history of Florida. Irma is more devastating on its current path.… This is a catastrophic storm that our state has never seen." Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine called it a "nuclear storm." The National Weather Service in Key West tweeted in capital letters: "This is as real as it gets. Nowhere in the Florida Keys will be safe. You still have time to evacuate."

Hurricane Irma Barrels Toward U.S., Threatening to Engulf Florida

Hurricane Irma Barrels Toward U.S., Threatening to Engulf Florida | 08 Sept 2017 | As Hurricane Irma threatened to engulf virtually the entire state of Florida in deadly winds, driving rain and surging seas, the largest evacuation in the state's history saw hundreds of thousands of people scrambling into crowded county shelters and jamming highways as they fled north from the storm. With the clock ticking, some counties issued curfews for Saturday, and more shelters were opened to absorb the crush of people seeking cover from one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit Florida. Brock Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, described Hurricane Irma as "a threat that is going to devastate the United States, either Florida or some of the southeastern states."

Trump signs $15 billion Harvey relief, debt ceiling package | 08 Sept 2017 | President Trump on Friday signed a $15 billion Hurricane Harvey relief bill that includes a short-term suspension of the debt ceiling and funding to keep the government running for the next three months. Earlier Friday, the package passed in the House of Representatives by a 316-90 vote, with all opposing votes coming from Republicans [Koch-owned swamp scum]. Congress moved with uncharacteristic speed on the bill to avert several looming crises -- the prospect of not only triggering a government shutdown, but hitting the debt limit as the federal government burns through cash it needs to respond to both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma which is barreling into Florida.

Hurricane Jose strengthens to 'extremely dangerous' Category 4

Hurricane Irma is size of Texas, shows up on earthquake monitors

Hurricane Irma is size of Texas, shows up on earthquake monitors | 06 Sept 2017 | Hurricane Irma intensified into a monster storm in the Atlantic Tuesday, with sustained winds of 185 mph and gusts of 218 mph. The storm's Atlantic wind speeds are behind only 1980's Hurricane Allen, which topped off at 190 mph. The scale of Hurricane Irma, which has grown to the size of Texas, is seen in an illustration.

Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point and St. Lucie nuclear power plants lie in the projected path of 185mph Irma

Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point and St. Lucie nuclear power plants lie in the projected path of 185mph Irma --Officials confident that reactors at two nuclear plants in Florida will stand firm as the deadly hurricane heads for landfall | 07 Sept 2017 | Nuclear power bosses are ready to shut down the reactors of two plants which lie in the path of Hurricane Irma. Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point and St. Lucie plants...are under threat. Spokesman Peter Robbins said: 'Based on the current track, we would expect severe weather in Florida starting Saturday, meaning we would potentially shut down before that point.' It can take more than 24 hours to shut down a reactor, so the decision will have to be made well in advance. When nuclear reactors get shut down they have to be cooled. If they are not, as in the case of the Fukushima disaster in 2011 when a tsunami disabled emergency generators, there can be nuclear meltdowns, hydrogen-air explosions and the release of radioactive material.

Georgia governor issues mandatory evacuations for areas east of I-95

Georgia governor issues mandatory evacuations for areas east of I-95 | 07 Sept 2017 | Following a recommendation from Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA/HS) officials and local Emergency Management Agencies, Gov.

The executive order also authorized up to 5,000 Georgia National Guard members to be on state active duty to support Hurricane Irma response and recovery.

Hurricane Irma has entered a class all its own

Hurricane Irma has entered a class all its own | 06 Sept 2017 | Irma is one of the strongest hurricanes to ever move across the Atlantic basin. It is coming on the heels of Harvey, the first category 4 storm to reach the United States mainland since Charley hit Florida in 2004. Since Harvey and Irma were both major hurricanes, it's tempting to make comparisons. Some of these are valid, others not so much. Irma really has entered a class of its own, with an intensity that is quite rare...Harvey's minimum atmospheric pressure of 938 millibars was typically low for a hurricane, but Irma's low of 914 millibars [!] put it in the top 10 lowest in the Atlantic and actually the lowest in the area of the Atlantic it is moving through (outside of the western Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico). Irma has already set many records as of Wednesday morning; perhaps there are more to come. The winds of 185 miles per hour ties for the second-strongest winds of all time in Atlantic hurricanes.

Hurricane Irma slams Caribbean islands as Category 5 storm, Puerto Rico braces for impacts

Hurricane Irma slams Caribbean islands as Category 5 storm, Puerto Rico braces for impacts --Florida Gov. Rick Scott says storm is 'bigger, faster and stronger than' last Category 5 to hit US | 06 Sept 2017 | Hurricane Irma roared into the Caribbean Wednesday, passing over the islands of Saint Martin and Barbuda with 185 mph winds as the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane in recorded history which Florida's governor warned was "stronger" than the last Category 5 storm to hit the U.S...The National Weather Service said Puerto Rico had not seen a hurricane of Irma's magnitude since Hurricane San Felipe in 1928, which killed a total of 2,748 people in Guadeloupe, Puerto Rico and Florida. While the impacts of Irma on the U.S. mainland are still to be determined, Florida Gov. Rick Scott activated 1,000 members of the Florida National Guard to be deployed across the state, and 7,000 National Guard members were to report for duty Friday when the storm could be approaching the area. "The storm is bigger, faster, and stronger than Hurricane Andrew," Scott said Wednesday, referring to the last Category 5 storm to hit the U.S in 1992. He warned Irma may bring "significant storm surge" to the state not seen during Andrew.

Trump strikes 'deal' with Dems on Harvey aid and debt limit, over Ryan’s objections

Trump strikes 'deal' with Dems on Harvey aid and debt limit, over Ryan’s objections | 06 Sept 2017 | President Trump struck a deal Wednesday with Democratic leaders to raise the federal debt ceiling and fund the government for the next three months while also providing Hurricane Harvey relief money -- hours after House Speaker [swamp rat] Paul Ryan blasted such a plan as "unworkable" and "disgraceful." The president, meeting with congressional leaders from both parties, effectively brushed off calls from GOP leaders for a longer-term plan. Those lawmakers had pushed first for an 18-month debt-limit hike and then floated a six-month plan, Fox News is told -- but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., held firm on calls for a three-month deal. Trump agreed. The House on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved an initial $8 billion in funding for Harvey relief, on a 419-3 vote.

Tropical storms Jose and Katia strengthened Wednesday afternoon, bringing the number of hurricanes churning in the Atlantic basin to three. It's the first time since 2010 that three active hurricanes have been in the Atlantic, according to CNN Weather. As of 11 p.m. ET, Jose was out over the open Atlantic, not far from where Irma was a couple of days ago...Katia became a hurricane in the southern Gulf of Mexico in a region not too far from where Harvey formed two weeks ago.
