Earth & Space Weather ~ Perseid Update, Superstorm, New Volcano and More
August 13, 2017: Yet another SEVERE thunderstorm has spawned performing more like a land based HURRICANE doing incredible damage this time in Finland! The “storm” overwhelmed weather instruments and caused weather websites to crash from the inundation of rapid traffic by concerned citizens in the line of the storm. *** 90 mph winds were recorded ***… Unreal…
FMI weather experts say the front is still developing over the Swedish island of Gotland, but winds that it created reached speeds of 40 meters per second over Poland, where some of the storm’s precipitation fell as hail. (90 mph)
“The gusts were very strong in Helsinki and its coastal area in particular. Our automated observation equipment rejected the measurements because the readings were so severe,” says FMI meteorologist Henri Nyman.
FMI says its website crashed last night, due to the overwhelming amount of people who were checking in on the progress of the storm. The servers couldn’t handle the surge in traffic.
Hundreds of 112 calls
In a story that was last updated at 11 pm Saturday evening, Yle interviewed rescue service representatives that said fires, downed trees and water damage kept them busy in the evening – but at the time it appeared that no one had been killed or badly hurt in the storm.
Rescue services say the worst damage from the storm concentrated in western Vantaa, where winds toppled dozens of trees in one go in some areas.
Already by nine pm, hundreds of calls had been made to emergency numbers, mostly about felled trees and traffic signs, and other debris that had been thrown about by the storm.
August 13, 2017: 91 NEW volcanoes have just been ‘discovered’ in Antarctica, making it the largest volcanic ridge on planet earth. If these things even began to warm, not even get close to erupting, could begin catastrophic LAND ice melting which would raise sea level. Other possible issues could be ocean salinity ratios would become anomalous in areas, which could create a domino effect with the food chain. Not a good scenario by any means.
Geologists say this huge region is likely to dwarf that of east Africa’s volcanic ridge, currently rated the densest concentration of volcanoes in the world.
August 13, 2017: A destructive, towering 60,000ft very severe thunderstorm has just developed in the Texas Panhandle and is slowly moving South/Southeast. Expect large hail, high winds, flash flooding and hurricane-like conditions. Heads UP!
August 13, 2017: Relevant data you should know everyday. These numbers are more important than the outside temperature. Make them part of your day and be safe out there.
