Updating maps: Twin storms may overlap on Gulf Coast!

Another memorable 2020 moment.
Pretty amazing. Storms Marco and Laura predicted to hit along adjacent, or maybe the same, areas of the Gulf Coast within a short time of one another.
(these maps will update automatically)

Already posted a few down. Interesting that if they "flirt" (as some news outlets are calling it), it's more likely they'll weaken each other rather than strengthen. Fujiwhara effect. [www.usatoday.com]

Must have missed the post with the NOAA auto-updating advisories.
Thanks Steve G., I really should bookmark that NOAA page.

I should have noticed this earlier, but it appears Laura will go the entire length of the island of Cuba as well as hitting Dominica.

If the models hold it looks like they’ll hit 24hrs apart from one another. Not fun times in the Gulf.

Yup. As I was saying, this doesn't have to be a Cat 3 to cause significant problems for us... I predict another S&WB disaster...

Peter - What is S&WB?

These will be flooding events rather than wind. Marco will push water atop a midnight high tide along the Louisanna coast and then Laura will drive more atop that the next day.

Sewerage and Water Board. They operate and maintain the pumps that drain the city, but are notorious for, amongst other things: having terribly outdated equipment that doesn't work half the time, resulting in streets flooding even just with a thunderstorm; failing to announce to residents with sufficient notice of water outages or boil advisories; having malfunctioning software for which they spent millions of dollars, which ends up giving residents outrageous and completely inaccurate bills (some over $20,000); and being a literal cesspool of corruption, graft, and incompetence. Oh, and did I forget to mention their involvement in/failure during Katrina? Unfortunately, they're also outside the purview of government; they exist as pretty much a separate entity such that the city council has really no control over them.

Good luck.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

From what I've been reading, NOLA ain't alone in that arena! Baltimore has more
feds digging thru city offices than the mob ever did. Former Police Chief just released from Federal Prison.
(Replaced by former NOLA Chief @ $275,000/yr + perks)
The PD is under a Federal Consent Decree due to corruption.
Former Mayor in Federal Prison, outgoing Comptroller under investigation, and they
caught her deputy shredding documents!
And, their School Board 'loses' millions every year without any explanation.
btw, what happened to the investigation over Newark, NJ 'lead problem'? [theintercept.com]

Laissez bon temps rouler! indeed.

Gahhh... current forecast is for them to hit us both as Cat 1's, Marco on Monday and Laura on Wednesday... the flooding is likely to be the biggest problem.
