Weird Coastal El Nino Clobbers Peru: 80 Killed, $1.4 Billion in Damage

Dr. Jeff Masters, March 24, 2017

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

The world’s costliest flood disaster of 2017 is still unfolding across parts of coastal Peru, where extreme rainfall atop normally dry terrain has led to episodes of major flooding over the last few weeks. More than 110,000 people have been displaced by flooding since December, and more than 80 deaths have been reported.

Iconic American Destination Virtually Isolated for Rest of Year

Christopher C. Burt, March 24, 2017

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

Half of the village of Big Sur, on the coast of central California, has lost its only access to the north following the demolition of the flood-damaged Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge along State Route 1 (also Rt. 1 or SR 1) on March 19. Although Rt. 1 to the south of Big Sur has reopened to traffic (after mud and rock slides were cleared) it is a long 70-mile journey along the windy but spectacular highway to Cambria, the next town of any significance where supplies can be had. CalTrans (California Department of Transportation) estimates it will take 6-9 months to rebuild a new bridge over the canyon.

Dilemma: Past and Future of Science in Society

Dr. Ricky Rood, March 12, 2017

Professor, University of Michigan

If we carry forward with the conservative, past-looking point of view of restoring trust in science and scientific institutions by trying to recapture what we have done in the past, we will make science irrelevant to decisions anytime that science is in conflict with the wants, beliefs, and emotions of those in power.

The remnants of Hurricane Linda will track toward southern California in addition to a deepening trough. This will allow for a moist, upslope flow to provide the first widespread rain of the fall season across the region.
