Hurricane Katrina

Meteorologist Jeff Matthews, Director of the Weather Underground, reports that the latest computer models indicate, "the threat of a strike on New Orleans by Katrina as a major hurricane has grown.The official NHC forecast is now 170 miles west of where it was at 11am, and still is to the east of the consensus model guidance.It would be no surprise if later advisories shift the forecast track even further west and put Katrina over New Orleans.Until Katrina makes its northward turn, I would cast a very doubtful eye on the model predictions of Katrina's track."[Wundergound Blog, 8/26/2005] People and organizations involved: Jeff Matthews, Hurricane Katrina Meteorologist Jeff Matthews, Director of the Weather Underground, reports that, "Katrina has increased markedly in size the past 12 hours, and will deliver a widespread damaging blow wherever she comes ashore. ... I'd hate to be an Emergency Management official in New Orleans right now.People and organizations involved: Hurricane Katrina, Jeff Matthews Meteorologist Jeff Matthews, Director of the Weather Underground, a popular web-based weather service, reports: "We may be on the verge of a rapid deepening phase, and Katrina is growing from a medium sized hurricane to a large hurricane.Where the pressure will bottom out after this deepening phase is anyone's guess, and I believe something in the 915-925 mb range is most likely, which would make Katrina a strong Category 4 or weak Category 5 hurricane by tomorrow afternoon."He then laments: "New Orleans finally got serious and ordered an evacuation, but far too late.There is no way everyone will be able to get out of the city in time, and they may be forced to take shelter in the Superdome, which is above sea level.If Katrina makes a direct hit on New Orleans as a Category 4 hurricane, the levees protecting the city will be breached, and New Orleans, which is 6-10 feet below sea level, will fill with water.On top of this 6 feet of water will come a 15 foot storm surge, and on top of that will be 20 foot waves, so the potential for high loss of life is great.Given the current track and intensity forecast, I'd put the odds of this at about 20 percent" [Wundergound Blog, 8/27/2005] People and organizations involved: Jeff Matthews, Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans Superdome "Katrina is in the midst of a truly historic rapid deepening phase ... [and] is now the sixth strongest hurricane ever measured in the Atlantic," states Jeff Matthews, meteorologist with the Weather Underground.People and organizations involved: Hurricane Allen, Hurricane Katrina, Jeff Matthews, Hurricane Camille I recommend that if you are trapped in New Orleans tomorrow, that you wear a life jacket and a helmet if you have them," states Jeff Matthews, meteorologist with the Weather Underground, a popular web-based weather service.Masters notes: "Katrina [is] the fourth strongest hurricane ever, and the strongest hurricane ever observed in the Gulf of Mexico, surpassing Camille. ... Katrina has continued to expand in size, and now rivals Hurricane Gilbert and Hurricane Allen as the largest hurricanes in size.When hurricanes reach such enormous sizes, they tend to create their own upper-air environment, making them highly resistant to external wind shear. ... Katrina is so huge and powerful that she will still do incredible damage even at this level."Recognizing that he has focused primarily on New Orleans, Masters states, "Katrina will do tens of billions in damage all along the coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida.Mobile Bay could well see a 10-foot storm surge.And inland areas will take heavy damage as well; Katrina will still be a hurricane 180 miles inland, and cause widespread flooding throughout the Tennessee Valley."Masters ends by urging readers to pray for those in Katrina's path. [Wundergound Blog, 8/28/2005] People and organizations involved: Hurricane Gilbert, Jeff Matthews, Hurricane Allen Jeff Matthews, meteorologist with the Weather Underground, a popular web-based weather service, reports that it appears New Orleans will be spared a catastrophic hit."As the eye passes east of the city later this morning, north winds of about 100 mph will push waters from Lake Pontchartrain up to the top of the levee protecting the city, and possibly breach the levee and flood the city.This flooding will not cause the kind of catastrophe that a direct hit by the right (east) eyewall would have, with its 140 mph winds and 15-20 foot storm surge.New Orleans will not suffer large loss of life from Katrina. ... [A]lthough the damage will be incredible, it could have been much, much worse."[Wundergound Blog, 8/29/2005] People and organizations involved: Hurricane Katrina, Jeff Matthews "Although the damage will be incredible, it could have been much, much worse," states Jeff Matthews, meteorologist with the Weather Underground.People and organizations involved: Air Force Hurricane Hunters, Hurricane Andrew, National Weather Service, Keesler Air Force Base, Jeff Matthews
