Climate Change Is Here

H/T @NamelessCynic of the Twittering device

Axios’ morning email thingie (odd emboldening and enigmatic bullet usage is theirs) reports that the weather got wild EAST of the Hudson river:

At least eight people are dead after remnants of Ida caused flash flooding in the New York City area, The New York Times reports.

Central Park recorded3.15 inches of rain in one hour, from 8:51 p.m. to 9:51 p.m.

  • Subway service is mostly suspended this morning.
  • The National Weather Service called it “an exceedingly rare event with 6-10″ of rainfall falling over a several hour period.”

At 9:43 p.m., the Weather Service in NYC tweeted: “[T]his particular warning for NYC is the second time we’ve ever issued a Flash Flood Emergency (It’s the first one for NYC). The first time we’ve issued a Flash Flood Emergency was for Northeast New Jersey an hour ago.”

  • “We are seeing way too many reports of water rescues and stranded motorists,” the Weather Service tweeted. “Do not drive through flooded roadways. You do not know how deep the water is and it is too dangerous. Turn Around Don’t Drown.”

Now that NYC is experiencing it, maybe our national press will report on it?

  2. I await Senator Kennedy’s impassioned plea for federal help for Louisiana while simultaneously sneering at those Democrat States NY and NJ for not being able to handle a little water, and voting against aid to them, in finest Red State Welfare Queen fashion.

    IDK if the media can focus on substance, they seem too busy pointing fingers at Biden for his (their) Afghanistan misadventure. Blame is never shared…

    Sometimes they get it right, (that Fucking “News”paper, from the morning e-mail alert …)

    “Destruction from climate change is now unavoidable. The Earth has already warmed too much and will continue warming in the years ahead …

    We are now at the dawn of America’s Great Climate Migration Era. For now, it is piecemeal, and moves are often temporary. … But permanent relocations, by individuals and eventually whole communities, are increasingly becoming unavoidable.

    The range of outcomes runs from unpleasant if manageable to truly horrific.”
