    Northern ireland 20,000 homes without power due to gales,snow and rain.
    I thought the snow had gone but rears its ugly head again it seems.
    In Bedford where i live no snow yet and lets hope not as it affects where i work as it did the last time.

    Oh apparently our economy is on the up not for long if this weather keeps up!
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/8594268.stm

    The last storms had occurred in Europe only last month so i wonder if the weather has now become more extreme in recent months?
    It seems to me that its the norm but more extreme than usual and cannot say what the next days weather will be like anymore.

    As Scotland faces more bad weather this happens.
    ONLY one in ten Edinburgh pensioners and families seeking help under the Scottish Government's energy assistance programme is getting free central heating.

    I do guess money is running out and as the weather worsens we shall see higher deaths.

    Is the same occurring in the states as well?

    It looks like the UK gets it again especially with Scotland as reported yesterday as well as Ireland.
    Today its Wales turn with floods only after recent snow storms and of course during December.

    I have come to the conclusion this is now the norm as there seems no letting up.
    I guess it is that time for us to learn to adapt to the new environment do you agree?

    As for Rhode Islands a news conference has arisen.

    A pretty energetic day in the central plains. By far the most energetic I've seen so far this spring. That bowling ball right behind it, could be just as bad.

    Britain shivered in one of the coldest May mornings for years today, with temperatures overnight plummeting as low as -6c.

    Tornados floods and yet more earthquakes now its getting colder.
    In the last few months the weather seems more extreme or just more persistant in the same places.

    Whilst it stays cold the energy companies see record profits,so whether we can afford it or not we do need to stay warm.
    I see another week of hell somewhere you can almost predict it now.

    Hungary has become the latest victim of climatic changes.

    Tropical Cyclone

    'At least three people were killed and over 10 injured as a cyclonic storm lashed several parts of Tripura, leaving behind a trail of destruction, officials said on Monday. The pre-monsoon rains accompanied by strong winds and hailstorm on Sunday night damaged more than 1,000 houses and killed many cattle in western and southern Tripura. "Three people, including a woman, were killed in separate incidents of wall collapse and lightning at Teliamura in western Tripura," a relief department official told reporters.

    Ten people who were hurt in these incidents have been shifted to government hospitals, the official said. Hundreds of trees, telephone and electric poles were uprooted in the squall, badly affecting the movement of vehicles on Monday. "Civil defence workers and district officials are busy providing relief. Telecommunication and power corporation personnel are working to restore communication lines and power supply," the official said. Similar cyclonic rainstorms accompanied by heavy lightning since March have also killed 15 more people in Tripura, damaged 15,000 houses and caused large scale destruction. Meteorological department director Dilip Saha said: "The seasonal Nor'wester (cyclonic rainstorm) would continue till the onset of monsoon next month.

    The recurring Nor'wester is now active in entire eastern and northeast India and few other places in the country." "The northeastern region, due to its topography, is a lightning-prone area. Lightning claims on an average 100 lives every year specially during March to May," said Swapan Bhowmik, a physicist of the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Agartala'.

    Tornado slams into the NSW town of Lennox Head

    Here's another 'out of place' weather event, that while not unknown......is very rare and unusual for this time of year. It's very small scale (F1) to what you guys in the USA have, but to people living here it is devastating.


    THIS was indeed a true freak of nature. Yesterday's devastating water spout-turned-tornado that slammed into the NSW North Coast town of Lennox Head confounded experts.
    Weather Channel senior meteorologist Dick Whitaker said he had never heard of a tornado in NSW in winter.

    "Normally the severe thunderstorm season is between November and April so this was highly, highly unusual," he said.
    Article - Herald Sun


    IT ARRIVED with no warning, lasted just a few moments, and left a trail of destruction through the sleepy coastal town of Lennox Head - including asbestos sheets scattered across streets.

    The tornado that swept in off the ocean on the north coast at about 7.30am yesterday was little more than 50 metres wide, but it left 12 homes in ruins, overturned caravans, brought down power lines, injured residents and sent poles flying into houses and cars.

    Last night police issued a health warning to Lennox Head residents to beware of asbestos material from old cottages ripped up by the storm.
    Article - Sydney Morning Herald

    Here are some more photo's

    wow those photos are awesome.
    look closer.
    that is actually 2 funnel clouds as well in one.
    "coming down" from it's dark core, this twister
    looks like it is full of HEAVY water.
    This heavy water is new to earth really, it comes from
    cosmic energy as opposed to solar.
    That is what makes the molecues "heavy"

    Earth has begun to create higher elevation tornados
    as well as cold weather tornados. Again, that is due
    to the heavy water molecues hidden within it.

    these ain't your grandma's twisters...no sir...
    not anymore.

    Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.

    The strange thing, that I just remembered was that a few weeks ago there were some other unusual waterspouts off Sydney.....I didn't pay too much attention.....but maybe this is a sign of things to come?

    Details of Waterspout 17 May 2010:


    Sea twister
    05:55 AM May 18, 2010A waterspout was spotted out at sea behind a surfer on Sydney's Bondi Beach yesterday. A rare sight in Australia, the waterspout lasted around five minutes and vanished before it reached land. AFP

    We are getting some large amounts of rain here in the OKC area. Lots of local flooding as our infrastructure is just not set to handle this kind of volume.

    Lots of good weather here in Oklahoma this year with tornado's, hail, now flooding.
    Good times here where the wind comes sweeping down the plains!

    I've just been watching the flooding on CNN News. It looks absolutely terrible in Oklahoma. The weather forecaster said you'd had 150-250mm of rain. Really bad situation. Stay safe.

    This was a Street!

    A category 2 thunderstorm (Yes they grade those as well) Just hit us.
    Producing marble sized hail and strong gusts of wind around 11 on the scale of Beaufort.
    Lots of structural damage and trees blown down. Some small buildings were destroyed as well.

    So far no reports of lives lost.

    I completely forgot about this thread. Good place for the storm that's about to hammer parts of the east.

    Inch of Snow Snarls Traffic Ahead of Expected Blizzard

    http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/lo...365957091.html

    Drivers crashed on icy roads and sat in gridlock for hours Wednesday night after an inch of snow fell in the D.C. area -- two days before a blizzard is expected to dump as much as 2 feet of snow.

    A thin layer of snow glazed streets with ice starting about 7 p.m., forcing the closure of highway ramps and side streets. The all-red traffic maps were reminiscent of "Carmageddon" in January 2011, when heavy snow fell fast across the region, knocking down trees and power lines and making a mess of the evening commute....

    States of emergency have been declared in Virginia, DC and Maryland. I guess trapping the president in the one incher by not pretreating the roads around the White House and Capitol Hill was too much to consider.

    The storm is nailing Virginia as I type this...

    Blizzard with 'life and death implications' menaces Washington, Mid-Atlantic

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/22/us/win...gton-blizzard/

    It might be a month late, but winter reintroduced itself to the East Coast in a big way Friday.

    A monster storm lashed parts of the South and the Mid-Atlantic on Friday as it barreled north toward some of the nation's biggest cities. Roughly a quarter of the U.S. population is in its path, about 30 million of whom are under blizzard warnings.

    "This is not a near miss," CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said. "This is a direct hit."

    Tennessee and North Carolina got hit first early Friday, with snow covering the ground in cities like Asheville, Charlotte and Greensboro. Ice is also a problem in those areas, which have slick roads and well over 20,000 power outages.

    Communities to the northeast should get hit even harder. And more than any other place, Washington is in the bull's-eye...

    Idiots. I'm watching the weather reports and there are travel bans all over the place but people continue to ignore them. Right now 2 cars are blocking a firetruck with lights going in NYC. Dumbasses. Maryland and West Virginia are getting hammered. Delaware has some outrageous tides going. Atlantic City is flooding in areas from storm surge.

    No need to call people idiots. They got their tickets.
    It was awesome when a snowball fight broke out.
    I left the area at noon the day before and it was
    19 degrees with a noreasterly wind. I froze my ass
    Off in the hotel. Gotta remember on those freezing nights, get a ground floor room. The heat and hot
    Water do not make it up past 3rd floor.
    This storm is but a whisp of winters to come.
    Being calm and cool helps those who are freaked
    Out.

    Do not fear death so much, but rather the inadequate life.

    It's not a matter of tickets which they didn't get from what was reported. It's the potential for something deadly to occur if first responders can't get where they need to because some selfish jackass decided to break a reasonable law for their own self serving purposes. In general people don't look at the bigger picture anymore and I have little patience for entitled people especially when it comes to safety related issues.

    When I was a truck driver I saw behavior like this all the time. A 15 year old died in my arms because her parents, rather than staying in place until the wind died down, drove their high profile RV on the interstate with 60 mph wind gusts despite a high profile vehicle warning. A gust took it over right in front of me and the girl was pinned in the sleeping area above the cab, the full weight of the engine on top of her pressing the air out of her lungs. I got paid to risk my life to get your toilet paper to the store. They didn't. Going through something like that can certainly change ones perspective and now at least 18 people have no perspective because most of them chose to drive in this storm.

    Some of my family stayed in a motel as well but they were comfortable. They sent me some awesome pics of their house buried!
