If you are curious how #HurricaneIda has impacted Roaring Rock Park, let's take a look. Members of visited RRP on Sept 9th to survey the June 2021 logging sites. The aftermath of the storm on the logging areas is not pretty, but fully expected. 1/
The skid steer machinery used by Washington Township's logging contractors to haul logs out of the sites left ruts in the roads. Since no remediation nor grading was performed after work wrapped up, drainage issues now exist. 2/
Storm water, which had flowed downslope directly into Brass Castle Creek, is now impeded from doing so because of the ungraded site. Washington Township has NO PLAN or commitment to go back and remediate or grade the June 2021 logging sites. 3/

[Thread] Le cyclone #Ida a laissé de puissantes marques de destructions de l'écosystème de delta du Mississipi. Des zones humides entières ont disparu du paysage ou sont encore sous les eaux laissant craindre un lourd bilan sur la faune/flore.
#HurricaneIda #HurricaneIdadamage ImageImage
Ces zones humides, bien que fragiles, ont une capacité de résilience (i.e. retour à l'état initial). Il faudra plusieurs années pour que l'écosystème (ici complètement rasé) retrouve un état d'équilibre.

Les espèces survivantes seront mise à rude épreuve ces prochaines mois. ImageImage
Cet écosystème, déjà fragilisé par l'Homme, pourrait se voir complètement modifié si la fréquence/intensité de ces évènements extrêmes s'accélère.

Les conséquences seront même supracontinentales : c'est un important point d'étape pour la migration des oiseaux ! ImageImage

HAPPENING NOW: @JeffParishGov gives the latest on rescue and infrastructure assessments for #HurricaneIda @wdsu
Pres. Sheng thanks everyone for the rescue efforts made in Lafitte.

27 people rescued Sunday, 108 people rescued today. Animals were rescued as well.

“Lafitte is underwater in a level that I have never seen before.” It stretches beyond Lafitte and onto the Highway. @wdsu
Sheng spoke with Mayor Camardelle of Grand Isle. He thinks everyone survived. People who stayed managed to run to safer buildings. Many of the buildings have been damaged.

He needs clean water and the roads to clear so he can start rebuilding. @wdsu

Preliminary reports suggest #HurricaneIda is the fifth-strongest storm ever to make landfall in the continental U.S.…
“For me, the most compelling aspect of Ida was its rapid intensification up to landfall,” said Scott Braun, a scientist who specializes in hurricanes at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
More than 1 million customers in Louisiana had reportedly lost power by midday on August 30. Another 100,000 customers lost electricity in Mississippi and 12,000 in Alabama.

"#HurricaneIda Is a Manmade Disaster -

The same fossil fuel industry whose emissions helped intensify the storm also modified the Louisiana coastline to make it more vulnerable to flooding."…
"Ida was the perfect storm of the climate change era—not just in terms of meteorology but also in terms of geography, history, and victimology."
"This storm brings the climate crisis full circle, unleashing the wrath of a world warmed by fossil fuels on the very state that is the site of some of the fossil fuel industry’s greatest crimes."

🧵 #ida #HurricaneIda with power out safe #generator use is incredibly important! Some rules:

Never use a #generator, grill, camp stove or other gasoline, propane, natural gas or charcoal-burning devices inside a home, garage, basement, crawlspace or any partially enclosed area.
Keep these devices outdoors, away from doors, windows and vents that could allow #carbonmonoxide (CO) to come indoors.
Opening doors and windows or using fans will not prevent CO buildup in the home. Although CO can't be seen or smelled, it can rapidly lead to full incapacitation and death.

For people worried about #HurricaneIda and family and friends there, much like having early judgments about the scope of an evacuation after a war is lost, it is hard to assess a storm in real time. It just is. 1/
Systems go out, but generators go on, systems reconnect. Bridges sway. Barges come unmoored. It is bad, but extent of bad can’t be assessed yet. The only thing that matters is human life. Many couldn’t evacuate. 2/
There were 50 levee failures in Katrina, some of them took a lot of time to identify. Do they hold this time? How many? And if they don’t, once winds pass, can more people be evacuated (Katrina deaths were mostly drownings after storm passed). 3/
