Oct. 11th - Hurricane Matthew, now a cyclone, ravaged the Maritimes!

Oct. 8th

Matthew, the hurricane, has been devastating. Today, Sunday, it has reduced in power. Hundreds dead in Haiti, millions of people evacuated in Florida.

Storm surges (water pushed by the hurricane –NHC, think of the water in a bathtub as you move about), are the next danger. The high tides are horrible. 

After making landfall as a Category 1 hurricane in South Carolina on Saturday, the National Hurricane Center said Matthew was no longer a hurricane early Sunday and is now considered a post-tropical cyclone. Maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph) -- the same as a Category 1 hurricane, forecasters said.

NY Times:
Hurricane Matthew left a tableau of devastation across southern Haiti, destroying houses, leaving villages under several feet of water and killing more than 800 people, according to a count by Reuters. 
CNN tracked the storm.  These are satellite images from screen captures.

Oct. 7th

Oct. 6th Fascinating watching the continent. Snow out west. 

Oct. 5th - still following Matthew 

Oct. 4th – they battle hurricane Matthew to the south

The US National Hurricane Center has amazing information. Sadly, they are talking about a metre of rain falling in these vulnerable areas, much flooding and displaced humans.

Oct. 1st - Rain!
