Hurricane Nate Comes Ashore – Ongoing Storm Surge in MS, AL, FL and LA…

The storm surge in/around Biloxi Mississippi is rapidly increasing as fast moving Hurricane Nate comes ashore on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Overnight storm livestream from RSBN below:

At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Nate was located by an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft and NOAA Doppler radar just offshore of the Mississippi coast near latitude 29.9 North, longitude 89.1 West. Nate is moving toward the north near 20 mph (31 km/h). A turn toward the north-northeast and northeast with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.

On the forecast track, Nate’s center will make landfall on the Mississippi coast within the next hour or two. After landfall, the center of Nate is expected to move across the Deep South, Tennessee Valley, and central Appalachian Mountains through Monday.

Data from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts. Nate is expected to weaken quickly after landfall, and it is likely to become a tropical storm Sunday morning. It should degenerate into a remnant low late Monday.

    Is it because it’s listed as a Category 1 or 2 that people think this is not as dangerous as the recent ones? This looks very dangerous.

      It is dangerous. Perhaps because it came through the Gulf of Mexico so fast, people don’t think of this as dangerous… not sure. But this storm is VERY dangerous. The storm surge will rise for a few hours.

      Prayers for all.

          In the one I was in offshore, I saw schools of fish in the “side” of the vertical wall of water as the barge dived down into the trough and plunged into the next wave.. going.. going.. we would hold our breath.. waiting for the front deck area of the barge to “recover” and surface again. The front wall of water coming toward us, our deck disappearing into the wave.. until its bouyancy popped us back up again..

          We would then ride up the next wave.. plunge down.. and do it all over again.. then again.. all night long..

          My senior sat diving supervisor that was onboard was on the salvage dive team that was sent to investigate the sinking of the ‘Glomar Java Sea’. He said that is how the drillship went down.. it dug into the next wave and was unable to “recover”.. just kept plowing down into the next wave.. kept on going.. didn’t recover.. This is how vessels “suddenly disappear” in storms.. in mere seconds..

              Yes – pucker factor – while watching it in the “control tower”, the huge ones towering over us and the wall of the wave rushing up the deck toward us, the first mate would frantically start to “undog” the hatch so we could have a chance to escape..

      I think your theory that used car prices will be cheaper in the next several months has been overtaken by events, considering how many cars have been damaged in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and now Mississippi. We won’t be having a glut of cars.

        Vince, you are likely correct. We have family in the auto business up here in Canada. A significant number of the used inventory is making its way south in fairly significant numbers.

        Sincerest best wishes to all of you folks in the area of these storms.

          Folks in the South looking for used cars have been warned not to buy northern cars (road salt causes rust) or coastal cars (salt/flooding damage). They look for Southern inland cars that haven’t been wrecked. Nowadays, you can trace Vin numbers and get the records and history.

            Be careful with Carfax though, I had a car I got new that had the engine block cracked. When the engine was replaced Carfax got a report of “service repair.”

            One of my then-high school age kids bought a car after Katrina that was cleared by Carfax.

            But I strongly suspect that pretty vehicle with a sun roof was a “Katrina Car” — it had been sold by “Crescent City Motors” (New Orleans) and had some odd characteristics, window lines that looked like they came from muddy waters, clogged wiper fluid jets, etc.

            Whatever…the price was low and the car got her a few miles to school, to work and back for several years before she sold it and moved to a big city where she didn’t need a car. And the dealer repaired the car for free for a problem it had right after she bought it. She did well… but I suspect there will be a lot of flood cars after this season

      this storm is moving fast, thankfully…not pounding-in-place for hours on end…so hopefully that terrifying sea surge will recede soon…depending on the tides.

        Since you mentioned the storm surge, I was watching the weather channel real early this morning and an off ramp from Hwy 10 was completely covered with water and a car was completely submerged. For the couple of hours that I watched, the tide was going out so the water completely receded and the car could be clearly seen. The windows were down so the weatherman assumed whoever was in it was able to escape. Nate was moving 23 to 30 mph.

      Have you noticed in the days BEFORE hurricanes arrive, the media seems to show mostly high-altitude “still” shots — cotton candy swirls and spaghetti maps. Maybe if they broadcast more on-the-ground “action” videos like the one above, citizens might use their heads and not do stupid stuff. Wishful thinking.

      The bulk of it will be taken away by the low tide but water will get trapped in any indentations in the ground, so there could be a lot of flooding for a while until the remaining water has time to drain away or evaporate.

    My heart just aches for the Biloxi area, they were destroyed from Katrina. The stilting and creation of “break away” construction will easily handle 5.7 feet. While helping to rebuild if memory serves me there was a 14 foot requirement we had heard about for homes that had been erased. It is interesting to see the casinos having moved on land put parking there, curious that they were not required to remove all autos, gamblers hoping for a payout?
    Also in some areas they required new berm construction to counter storm surge I do not recall what the height of those were, at any rate am praying for them all what a mess.

      Thinking of the terrain and those casinos, it is dumb to keep car parked in a garage that is below sea level. But there are not a lot of places close by with parking much higher than a few feet above sea level.

    This is this mornings surface analysis. As you can see, the mid to lower Ohio River valley had a cold front come through overnight and there is another one behind it. Look at the isobars associated with the second one (mostly still in Canada). This may prevent the storm from lingering too long creating flooding in the Appalachian Mountains, hopefully.
    We here in Greater Cinti area can expect about 1/2 in of rain today, we need it too!!

      PDQ,
      Stayed on a similar vessel while in the USN.
      Repair docks “Piers”..in San Francisco.

      They were used to house the crew while extended repairs are underway.

      Basic accommodations.
      Cramped quarters.
      Zero privacy.
      Not many options.
      They know where you sleep!

      Personal Safety/ Security would be my biggest Concern!!

      Wouldn’t be my first choice…

      These types of barges have been around since WWII.

      My Dad was on one after two different ships he was on were either torpedoed or wrecked by a typhoon. My Dad wasn’t injured in either event, but caught some shrapnel in the hip while blowing up bunkers with the Marines. He was housed on one while he recovered. I have some war letters to his younger brother discussing his stay.

      Here is a link with some of the accommodations these “floating hotels” provided.

      Hopefully these barges will prevent long term squatters.
