    Tampa braces for its worst hurricane in 100 YEARS: Monster storm Ian is set to batter Florida as a 'large and powerful force' bringing 15ft waves and 135mph winds - as locals dig TRENCHES and strip stores bare
    Tropical Storm Ian has been upgraded to a 'large and powerful' Category 1 hurricane by the National Hurricane Center


    > Authorities in Cuba have suspended classes and will begin evacuations on Monday as Ian is set to hit a Category 3 strength or above
    > Officials in Florida have also declared a state emergency over the strengthening storm, warning residents to stock up on radios and supplies
    > Stores have started to run out of water and other basic supplies as many stockpile ahead of the storm hitting - including planks of plywood to board their windows up

    People have been desperate to fill up on gas, causing huge queues at many stations as others are preparing by sandbagging roads outside their properties in an attempt to limit the damage.

    Some residents in Florida are being forced to queue for more than two hours to get sandbags ahead of the storm hitting.

    Tampa, Miami, Cape Coral and Orlando are all seeing an increase in congestion higher than usual for this time of year, which could indicate more people are fleeing the state or are using their time to stock up on essentials.

    Jose Lugo told WFTV he knows what can happen if the worst hits and has been preparing by filling up bags of sand alongside other community members in Orange County.

    He said: 'It’s better to be prepared than sorry later, I was in Puerto Rico visiting my parents a couple days before Fiona hit.

    'I was helping them out, and now I’m here helping myself and everybody else.'

    Some areas in Tampa are having to show proof of residency to gain access to the sandbags, with a 10-bag limit per house.

    Tampa’s Mayor, Jane Castor, said that they are ‘preparing for the worst and hoping for the best’ when it comes to preparing for the hurricane

    Orlando is currently being battered by heavy winds and rain as Hurricane Ian moves across the state, reporting winds of up to 95mph

    Now Fort Myers BURNS: Homes burst into flames after Hurricane Ian's 'tsunami-style' flooding 'kills hundreds' - as thousands remain trapped and 2.7M are without power and Orlando is battered

    Authorities in Florida have warned that fatalities will be 'in the hundreds' as Hurricane Ian continues to barrel its way across the state leaving a trail of complete destruction in its wake. Scores of people remain trapped on the roofs of their flooded homes as 2.5million are without power, with officials warning evacuees not to return home after the Sunshine State was battered by 150mph winds and 18ft storm surges. Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno, whose area covers Fort Myers, which has been one of the worst affected by the monster storm, confirmed that he was expecting hundreds of fatalities in his jurisdiction alone. Horrifying pictures show the level of devastation, with boats usually in the marina being forced onto the shore amid broken palm trees and damages infrastructures. Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood predicted the recovery effort for will be like 'something we've not seen in this county ever' while others are warning people to stay off the roads for their own safety. Helpless Floridians desperately called their relatives and the police, pleading to be rescued from their homes as they watched the flooded water break through their doors and begin rising dangerously higher and higher. Streets were turned into rivers, with the storm surge flooding the lower level emergency room of HCA Florida Fawcett Hospital in Port Charlotte, while fierce winds tore part of its fourth floor roof from its intensive care units.

    Charleston is already battered by gale-force winds and sideways rain before Hurricane Ian hits city at 2pm with 85mph gusts and life-threatening 7ft storm surge: National Guard activated for South Carolina, as Biden triggers emergency declaration.


    Charleston is already being battered by gale-force winds from Hurricane Ian as the city braces for a direct hit and storm surges of up to 7ft, after it barreled through Florida leaving swathes of the state decimated and 19 dead. Monster tempest Ian has recharged from a tropical storm back into a Category 1 hurricane on Thursday as it is set to pummel South Carolina today, as well as neighboring North Carolina and Georgia. Historic Charleston is already being battered by 85mph winds as landfall is expected to devastate parts of the city at 2pm today - bringing life threatening storm surges of up to 7ft to the city and other coastal hubs. A state of emergency has since been declared in Charleston County, which has a population of about 413,000, with officials changing operations to react to a disaster or emergency - which they warn is 'imminent'. Hurricane warnings have been issued across hundreds of miles of coastline, stretching from the Savannah River to Cape Fear, with flooding likely across the Carolinas and southwestern Virginia. The National Hurricane Center also issued a warning for the entire coast of South Carolina, including Hilton Head island, Charleston and Myrtle Beach.

    LIVE: Evacuations, flood rescues underway amid Calif. atmospheric river

    Some of the worst flooding was reported in Santa Cruz County, a part of the state that was hit particularly hard by last week’s bomb cyclone.

    Footage shows relentless rain flooding communities across the state
    By Marianne Mizera, AccuWeather editor

    The onslaught of rain Monday has flooded communities large and small across California. Places such as Montecito, Santa Barbara County, north of Los Angeles, have already received over 5 inches of rain since 3 a.m. Monday, officials said, with the heaviest rain yet to come this afternoon and evening for most of the state. An immediate evacuation order has been issued for all of Montecito, parts of Carpinteria, Summerland and the city of Santa Barbara. Evacuation orders or warnings also have been issued for residents of several other areas, including Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Monterey, and Solano counties.

    California storm: Five-year-old boy swept away as residents told to flee
    https://news.yahoo.com/california-weather-state-braces-more-155303905.html?fr=sycsrp_catchall

    A five-year-old has been swept away by floodwaters in California as the state's death toll from a series of storms rises to 14.

    The boy and his mother were reportedly in a truck taking him to school when the vehicle was overcome by water.

    Tens of thousands remain without power and mass evacuations are under way, with more cyclones to come.

    People living in the elite coastal enclave of Montecito are among those ordered to leave their homes.

    The neighbourhood near Santa Barbara is home to several celebrities including the Duke and Duchess of Sussex - Harry and Meghan - and Oprah Winfrey.

    It is unclear if Prince Harry, who is currently promoting his memoir Spare, or his wife and children are currently in Montecito.

    The boy swept away in floodwaters sparked a seven-hour search that was called off when it became too dangerous for divers, said local officials.

    Bystanders pulled the mother out of the truck but saw the boy being swept out of the vehicle. His shoe was later found by rescuers.

    The boy was said by his father to have been on his way to school, according to local media.

    More than 100,000 people were still without power as of Monday afternoon and state officials said the death toll has risen from 12 to 14.

    Around 90% of Californians - some 34 million people in the most-populous US state - were under flood watch, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

    "We expect to see the worst of it still ahead of us," Governor Gavin Newsom said at a news conference. "Don't test fate."


    An order issued on Monday afternoon by the Montecito Fire Department directed residents of the town and nearby canyons: "Leave now!"

    Residents unable to flee are being told to move to their innermost room or high ground.

    The US National Weather Service (NWS) reported that up to 8in (20cm) of rain had already fallen over 12 hours in the region.

    Montecito is home to many Hollywood stars, including actor Rob Lowe, and comedian Ellen DeGeneres, who posted a video from the banks of a flooded creek on Monday.

    "This is crazy!" DeGeneres said. "This creek next to our house never flows, ever. It's probably about nine feet up and is going to go another two feet up."

    The evacuation comes on the fifth anniversary of a mudslide in Montecito that killed 23 people and destroyed more than 100 homes.

    This new round of severe weather will bring heavy rain on already flooded rivers, damaging winds that are expected to topple trees and power lines, and heavy snow in the California mountains.

    The NWS forecast the heaviest and most widespread rain would hit around Tuesday morning and afternoon. The agency has issued a flood warning in areas around Los Angeles, including Orange County and the San Bernardino County Mountains.


    Other evacuations have been ordered by officials, including in areas downstream of reservoirs that could overflow.

    The Sacramento Valley is also under a flood advisory. Schools in and around Sacramento have cancelled classes on Monday.

    US President Joe Biden declared a state of emergency for California on Monday, which allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) to provide disaster relief.

    What are atmospheric rivers and bomb cyclones?

    In the last week, California has experienced two overlapping weather phenomena - an atmospheric river, where an airborne stream of dense moisture flows in from the ocean, and a bomb cyclone, a storm with a rapid drop in pressure that creates an explosive effect.

    Atmospheric rivers can cause extreme rainfall and floods. Bomb cyclones require a mix of high and low temperatures, rising and dropping air pressure, and moisture, often resulting in strong winds and severe storms.

    Last week's storms inflicted widespread damage in northern California and dumped record-breaking rain.


    The storm damaged homes and businesses, and killed at least 12 people. Among the victims was a toddler who died after a redwood tree fell on a mobile home.

    CALI FLOODING
    California deluge forces mass evacuations

    https://apnews.com/article/california-flooding-Montecito-evacuation-order-7c151eeaf3f567a125d74245173327f1
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — As another powerful storm walloped California, a 5-year-old boy was swept away by floodwaters Monday on the state’s central coast and an entire seaside community that is home to Prince Harry, Oprah Winfrey and other celebrities was ordered to evacuate on the fifth anniversary of deadly mudslides there.

    Tens of thousands of people remained without power, and some schools closed for the day. Streets and highways transformed into gushing rivers, trees toppled, mud slid and motorists growled as they hit roadblocks caused by fallen debris. The death toll from the relentless string of storms climbed from 12 to 14 on Monday, after two people were killed by falling trees, state officials said.

    A roughly seven-hour search for the missing boy turned up only his shoe before officials called it off as water levels were too dangerous for divers, officials said. The boy has not been declared dead, said spokesperson Tony Cipolla of the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.

    The boy’s mother was driving a truck when it became stranded in floodwaters just before 8 a.m. near Paso Robles, a small city inland from California’s central coast, according to Tom Swanson, assistant chief of the Cal Fire/San Luis Obispo County Fire Department.

    Bystanders were able to pull the mother out of the truck, but the boy was swept out of the vehicle and downstream, likely into a river, Swanson said. There was no evacuation order in the area at the time.

    About 130 miles (209 kilometers) to the south, the entire community of Montecito and surrounding canyons scarred by recent wildfires were under an evacuation order that came on the fifth anniversary of a mudslide that killed 23 people and destroyed more than 100 homes in the coastal enclave.

    In Los Angeles, a sinkhole swallowed two cars in the Chatsworth area on Monday night. Two people escaped by themselves and firefighters using ropes and an aerial ladder rescued two others who had minor injuries, authorities said.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11615585/California-steels-storms-left-12-dead-137-000-without-power.html

    The storm, which was expected to move through Los Angeles, Orange and other southern counties through Tuesday, dumped more than 16 inches of rain in some mountain areas Monday and prompted pleas for people to stay indoors.

    The National Weather Service called the storm "the most impressive storm since January 5–7, 2005." A second, weaker round was expected to hit San Luis Obispo County around dawn, Santa Barbara County at mid-morning, Ventura County mid-to-late morning and Los Angeles County in the late morning or early afternoon. The rain should end by Tuesday evening.

    The Tuesday morning incursion could dump rain at up to two-tenths of an inch per hour. That's "not strong enough to cause problems in of themselves but they will not let the standing water subside and flood warnings continue across the area," the weather service said. Thunderstorms are likely, especially in San Luis Obispo County and northern Santa Barbara County, which could produce damaging hail and wind gusts, and even the possibility of weak tornadoes should a waterspout come ashore.

    "This is not a day to be out doing anything you don’t have to," said Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown.

    Battered coastline, flooding rivers trap residents, bring misery in Santa Cruz County
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/battered-coastline-flooding-rivers-trap-110025273.html

    Susanne Rust, Summer Lin, Marisa Gerber
    Tue, January 10, 2023 at 3:00 AM PST
    SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA - JANUARY 8, 2023: During a break from a series of powerful storms of rain and high winds hitting the Californias Central Coast locals enjoy the massive amount of storm debris and uniquely good surfing on Main Beach in Santa Cruz, California on Sunday January 8, 2023.

    Children look at storm debris on Sunday, during a break from a series of powerful storms of rain and high winds hitting Santa Cruz and other parts of California's Central Coast.

    The parking lot behind JJ’s Saloon was coated in three inches of mud. It was midday Monday and the Santa Cruz County saloon had now flooded three times in 10 days.

    The latest flooding was all from direct rain, bartender Jeff Ferreira said, but last week Soquel Creek had risen over its banks and gushed into downtown.

    “Had to be a couple of feet,” the 56-year-old bartender said as he pulled up a video from a few days earlier showing the water-logged lot behind the saloon.

    On Monday, as huge swaths of Central and Northern California were still assessing damage from a quick succession of storms last week, another winter rain pelted the region, triggering floods that claimed the life of a motorist and swept away a 5-year-old boy who was trying to cross a road with his mother. Conditions were so unsafe Monday afternoon that officials called off the search for the boy.

    Debris slides closed part of Highway 17, the high-speed mountain road that connects San Jose and Santa Cruz, and so much rain fell so quickly that, in places, the San Lorenzo River rose over its banks. (National Weather Service data show that the river crested at about 24 feet around 8 a.m. and then receded as rain eased.)

    Across Santa Cruz County, people posted pictures of felled trees, flooded cars and a collapsed bridge. In Felton Grove, the storm water rose so high it engulfed the entire metal pole of a stop sign, leaving only the red octagon, which appeared as if it were floating atop the muddy water. Rescuers zipped through inundated streets on a jet ski. They slowed in front of homes, asking if everyone was alright.

    On Facebook, the Santa Cruz County sheriff’s office posted warnings throughout the day:

    "Please avoid unnecessary travel."

    "Heavy rains and runoff."

    "Evacuation order"


    For many longtime residents of the region, the storm transported them back to a deadly deluge four decades earlier.

    California braces for more rain, storms, potential floods
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/california-faces-more-rain-storms-190321522.html

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California braced for more stormy weather with rain starting to sweep into the northern part the state and the San Francisco Bay area on Saturday, preceding a series of powerful incoming Pacific storms and raising the potential for road flooding, rising rivers and mudslides on soils already saturated after days of rain.

    The National Weather Service warned of a “relentless parade of atmospheric rivers” over the coming week, producing heavy rain and mountain snow. Atmospheric river storms are long plumes of moisture stretching out into the Pacific and are capable of dropping staggering amounts of rain and snow.

    The wet weather comes after days of rain in California from Pacific storms. A series of recent weather systems have knocked out power to thousands, flooded streets, battered the coastline and caused at least six deaths.

    The first of the heavier storms was due to arrive Monday, and the weather service issued a flood watch for a large swath of Northern and Central California with 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 centimeters) of rain expected through Wednesday in the Sacramento-area foothills.

    In the Los Angeles area, light rain was forecast for the weekend with stormy conditions expected to return Monday with the potential for up to 8 inches (20 centimeters) of rain in the foothills. High surf was expected through Tuesday, with large waves on west-facing beaches, the National Weather Service said.

    Since December 26, San Francisco received more than 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain, while Mammoth Mountain, a popular ski area in the Eastern Sierra, received nearly 10 feet (3 meters) of snow, the National Weather Service reported.

    The storms won’t be enough to officially end California’s ongoing drought but they have helped.

    State climatologist Michael Anderson told a news briefing late Saturday that officials were closely monitoring Monday's incoming storm and another behind it and were keeping an eye on three other systems farther out in the Pacific.

    The work has broad implications for understanding how floods or reservoirs relate to quakes — a topic that gained new relevance in 2008, after a massive earthquake in China's Sichuan province killed more than 80,000 people. Some geologists have proposed that impounding water behind a newly built dam there helped hasten the quake.

    Recent California floods could trigger earthquakes, new report says

    As if we don't have enough trouble from flooding, extreme amounts of rain caused by back-to-back storms systems in the state could create enough pressure in the groundwater system to trigger earthquakes along California's faults, a new report says.

    Floods Threaten to Turn Coastal California Towns into an Island
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/other/floods-threaten-to-turn-coastal-california-towns-into-an-island/ar-AA16foVT
    (Bloomberg) -- Local officials warned that a part of the Monterey peninsula in Northern California could be cut off from the rest of the state by flooding on a river that’s been inundated with rainfall from a series of punishing winter storms.

    The tony seaside communities of Carmel and Pebble Beach are among the tourist towns that may become isolated for several days if the nearby Salinas River floods, Monterey County Sheriff Tina Nieto said during a press conference late Wednesday. Residents living in low-lying areas near the river were ordered to evacuate immediately, according to a Twitter post by the sheriff’s office.

    The waters are expected to rise to flood stage by midday Thursday, Nieto said. “Some of the roadways are going to be closed and you could be stuck on one side or the other,” she added.

    The warning comes amid a series of storms that have rolled off the Pacific Ocean since the end of December, flooding cities and towns, triggering mudslides and burying roads with mud and debris. At least 17 people have been killed in disaster-weary California.

    The Salinas River originates in the Los Padres National Forest and slices through a swath of central California, emptying into Monterey Bay just north of the town of Monterey. It is one of the five rivers the state has been monitoring for flooding this week.

    Turbulent winds toppled a big rig truck on the Golden Gate Bridge Saturday night, causing a traffic nightmare as wicked weather continues to thrash California.

    A photo tweeted by California Highway Patrol showed the tractor trailer mangled and on its side, splayed into the opposite lane of traffic.

    Traffic was shut down completely in both directions on the bridge shortly after 7 p.m. local time as crews removed the truck, and the mess was cleared completely just after 8 p.m., according to CHP.

    The Golden Gate Bridge was struck by lightning earlier Saturday afternoon, dramatic video from the NWS shows, as storms continue to inundate California.

    Since late December, California has been drenched with more than 30 inches of rainfall, with some estimates surpassing 40 inches near Santa Barbara, according to Fox Weather senior meteorologist Greg Diamond. Over 26 million Californians were under flood warnings on Saturday.

    This Is About To Cause Huge Snowstorms… In this video we are talking about a major pattern change that is likely going to produce several snowstorms as we go through the end of January.
