They did it again

Local TV in New Orleans is reporting that Dorian has been declared making landfall at Cape Hatteras

Charlotte, North Carolina TV just reported the CENTER of the eye must make landfall in order to qualify as officially becoming a landfall hurricane.

Just like the storm in the Gulf recently, which they reported became a hurricane for 15 minutes before reporting it was not a hurricane, the NWS is fudging the statistics

3. hmmmmm , i'll accept any definition of the nws as official

must the complete eye come ashore? a portion of the eye (maybe "howsomever slight?" or maybe hurricane force winds? either way, as long as consistent.

did you see that trash they're pulling from the orleans canal? but my question is different.

if the new corps of engineers pumping stations are not being operated properly, couldn't that prevent the s&wb pumping stations from discharging to the lake? we have had more street flooding this year than ever before.

They say the center of the eye must make landfall for it to count. Who are you going to trust, the NWS or your lying eyes?

Right now, a screwy situation exists with the old and new pumping stations. The old, inland stations are still operating, only because their presence is blocking the flow of water to the new pumping stations at the lake. The old stations must pump water into the canals, which now feed the new stations. A little "dance" happens now as the old stations must operate to keep the old discharge sides replenished in order for the new stations to pump the water to the lake.

This requires coordination between the operation of the two pumping stations, now in series. Since the new stations have more pumping capacity, there should be no danger of pumping too much water from the old stations. In theory, there is no problem, but we are talking about government.

Cleaning major arteries of the system is nice, but I suspect the major problem is the smaller portions of the drainage system underground where blockages cannot be seen.

Oh, by the way, did I mention the "temporary" floodgates the corps built at the lake after Katrina? They need to be ripped out now. They only cost mega-millions to build and were never necessary.

But the Corps of Engineers were going to build the damn things no matter what just to thumb their noses at the city, which opposed them many years ago when the city made the Corps reinforce the inland levees in lieu of the floodgates. When I jokingly told an old Corps of Engineers engineer as they were building them that we were going to get those God-Damned floodgates no matter what, he laughed in confirmation of my "joke."

After all, its only money...…..OUR money.

By the way, the Corps didn't do such a hot-shot job reinforcing those levees, did they? It is those levees that failed when the city flooded.
