Damp, Dark and Disarrayed, Florida Starts Coping With Irma’s Aftermath

Power to Baptist Health South Florida’s hospitals in Miami-Dade County was sporadic, and each time the main supply failed, some areas would fall dark for eight seconds before the backup systems kicked in, said Wayne Brackin, the hospital group’s chief operating officer.“We have had significant and continuous power outages in most of the facilities, so we’ve been running off generators most of the time,” Mr. Brackin said.Emergency officials were contacting nursing homes on Monday to see whether they needed additional fuel for their backup generators or were having mechanical problems. Some of the state’s assisted living facilities, which also house people who depend on electrical medical equipment, had no backup generators and said on Monday that they were completely without power.Overnight from Sunday to Monday, floodwaters rose around a single-story nursing home in Palatka, about 60 miles south of Jacksonville […]

Irma Live Updates: Storm Weakens, but Millions Are Without Power in Florida

Jacksonville is inundated, while Tampa is ‘looking good.’“We need you to heed our warnings,” Mayor Lenny Curry of Jacksonville said on Monday, explaining that high tides would raise river waters up to 6 feet above their normal levels and cause additional flooding.The mayor urged residents to avoid drawing on city resources except for in emergencies, but said people who needed rescuing should raise a white flag to draw the authorities’ attention.Jacksonville was facing a “trifecta” of water-related threats, city officials said: Storm surge, heavy rainfall over the weekend and Monday’s rising tides. “This is potentially a weeklong event with water and the tides coming and going,” Mr. Curry said.In Tampa, Mayor Bob Buckhorn, who on Sunday warned residents that the city was about to get “punched in the face,” said on Monday that the city had been spared the storm’s worst.“It’s looking good,” Mr. Buckhorn said. “The first blush is that not only did we dodge a bullet, but we survived pretty well. Not a lot of flooding. Tree removal, debris — don’t want to say it’s negligible, but it’s manageable.”The city was again spared from a direct hit by a hurricane, as has been its good fortune for more than 90 years running. How? “Because we live good lives, because we only get drunk once in a while,” Mr. […]

How Hurricane Irma Became So Huge and Destructive

PhotoHurricane Irma as it moved toward Florida on Friday.Credit National Oceanic and Atmospheric AdministrationWASHINGTON — As Hurricane Irma barrels dangerously toward Florida, scientists say that a perfect mix of meteorological conditions has conspired over the past week to make the storm unusually large and powerful.“You need just the right ingredients for a hurricane of this magnitude to last for so long,” said Phil Klotzbach, an atmospheric scientist at Colorado State University. “And Irma has had them all.”Weather forecasters had already expected this summer to be an active hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean because of warmer-than-average ocean surface temperatures, which provide fuel for hurricanes, as well as weaker-than-average wind shear, which can help to dissipate storms.But even in that context, Irma was special.Irma initially developed near Cape Verde off Africa’s coast on August 30, and a ridge of high pressure kept the storm from wandering off harmlessly into the cooler northern ocean. Instead, it was pushed inexorably westward, with plenty of time to intensify over the warm Atlantic waters.On its journey west, Irma underwent at least six cycles called “eyewall replacement,” when the eye of the hurricane naturally contracts. While storms can weaken during this process, they also can quickly intensify and expand in size once the cycle is complete. And Irma did not weaken — it just grew and grew.GraphicA ‘500-Year Flood’ Could Happen Again Sooner Than You Think. […]

After 16 Futile Years, Congress Will Try Again to Legalize ‘Dreamers’

Before there was Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, there was Mr. Durbin’s Dream. In 2007, a version of the measure won the support of a majority of senators but fell victim to a bipartisan filibuster that included eight Democrats. Three years later, the bill passed the House but again did not get through the Senate.And in 2013, language allowing dreamers to stay in this country and work or attend school was included in a broader immigration package that passed the Senate with 68 votes — then failed in the House.Frustrated after years of failings, President Barack Obama signed DACA as a temporary order in the hope that Congress would eventually pass the Dream Act and broader immigration changes. But with Republicans in control of both chambers of Congress, the Dream Act stalled once again.The politics have clearly shifted on the issue — for both parties. With Mr […]
