Flooding Submerges Pensacola, Florida
April 30, 2014 The worst flooding in Florida in a generation — more than 2 feet of water in 26 hours, by one rain gauge — left drivers stranded overnight and into Wednesday, the latest pummeling from the monster storm system lumbering across the country.
Tornado warnings were posted in the morning in Florida, Alabama and North Carolina. The risk for tornadoes later in the day was highest from South Carolina to Washington, D.C., forecasters said.
hey said that Wednesday would probably be the last day of the severe-weather threat from the storm system, which has killed 35 people in seven states in a relentless eastward push of wind and water.
On Tuesday, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle got the worst of it. At least one person was killed, a man in Florida whose car got stuck in rising water. He called for help, but the water was moving too quickly, authorities said.
Five inches of rain fell on Pensacola, Fla., in a single hour, from 9 to 10 p.m. Tuesday — more than during the entirety of Hurricane Ivan, which rolled through in 2004, said Kevin Roth, lead meteorologist for The Weather Channel.

Heavy rains flood homes, jail in Fla. Panhandle
June 2012 — Floodwaters from torrential rains damaged homes and closed roads throughout the Florida Panhandle, cutting power to the county jail and sending residents to emergency shelters.
More than 600 inmates at the Escambia County Jail were without power and air conditioning after the rains left more than 5-feet of water in the bottom floor, which also houses the laundry and kitchen facilities. Extra deputies were brought in to beef up security, and generators powered lights outside the facility to shine into the jail. Officials worked Sunday to pump out the excess water and assess the damage.
"The whole electrical system is underwater.
The parking lot of the sheriff's office was completely flooded, leaving some patrol cars and other fleet vehicles with water up to the hood. Some homes and businesses also had several feet of water inside, he said. Authorities estimated $3 million to $4 million in damages at the sheriff's facilities.

'This storm will kill you'
(CNN)Hurricane Matthew is pummeling the Bahamas right now, and its dangerous winds have picked up speed as the storm continues north. Its next stop could be the United States.
Here's what you need to know now about the powerful storm that forecasters say is gaining strength:
• Hurricane Matthew has strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 mph and gusts up to 165 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. Matthew continues to head towards Florida's east coast and is expected to hit the coast late Thursday or early Friday. As of 11 a.m. ET, it was located about 180 miles southeast of West Palm Beach and was moving northwest at 14 mph.
• The storm has already killed at least 28 people in three Caribbean countries. Twenty-three died in Haiti alone, said Civil Protection Service spokesman Joseph Edgard Celestin, who says communication issues have prevented authorities from assessing the damage and casualties in the far southwest portion of the country.
• Authorities urged more than 2 million people to leave their homes in coastal Florida, Georgia and South Carolina as the storm neared -- the largest mandatory evacuations in the United States since Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast in 2012.
• Based on the latest projections, Matthew could make landfall in Florida early Friday as a Category 4 hurricane. It could also skirt the coast as it continues north. While Matthew's outer bands were already starting to hit Miami-Dade County by mid-morning, Mayor Carlos Jimenez said there's a bit of good news: "The probability of sustained hurricane winds has gone down 13%."
• Florida Gov. Rick Scott offered a dire warning Thursday morning for people living in evacuation zones: "This is serious. ... Don't take a chance. A small movement (of the storm) could mean a lot. That's why we have to prepare for a direct hit. So again, if you need to evacuate and you haven't, evacuate. This storm will kill you. Time is running out. We don't have that much time left."
Oct 6, 2016 - Mass evacuations underway. Hurricane Matthew has a cousin, Tropical Storm Nicole in Atlantic. Nicole winds are 70 mph, almost another hurricane, moving NW toward USA. Matthew winds 125 mph moving NW toward Florida and up the east coast.

NBC Correspondent: Obama Climate Deal 'Designed to Stop'... Hurricanes?
You are about to enter another dimension...
Only a True Believer would posit such nonsense -- which makes sense, considering the following report comes from NBC.
Apparently President Barack Obama "believes so deeply in protecting the environment" that his climate change agreement is designed to stop hurricanes like Matthew, which is slated to make landfall on parts of the Southeastern U.S. on Thursday.
Did you know President Obama has the power to stop hurricanes in their tracks? We thought only Caped Crusader Al Gore could do that. NBC has the inside track, however, on our president's supernatural powers. Newsbusters reports on NBC's latest "news" report:
...Obama spoke to reporters on Wednesday afternoon in the White House Rose Garden commenting on the required number of nations having ratified the Paris climate change agreement and, almost on cue, NBC’s Ron Allen connected global warming to Hurricane Matthew set to bear down on the Bahamas, the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida.
Speaking on MSNBC Live to host Kate Snow, Allen first gushed about how the President “believes so deeply in protecting the environment” that the deal marks “one of the most significant aspects of his legacy” before bringing in Hurricane Matthew as a intriguing “practical matter.”
Newsbusters accurately notes that Allen seemed to forget that up to now, there hasn't been "a major Atlantic Hurricane to crack the top ten in intensity in nine years." Still, Allen pressed on:
t’s very interesting that this is happening a day when there’s a hurricane bearing down on the United States and in the Caribbean because these severe storms, beach erosions, intense weather episodes that we’ve had is perhaps the most practical sample of what the president was talking about as the threat that the planet faces[.]
The NBC correspondent added that stopping Hurricanes like Matthew is what Obama's entire climate accord is predicated upon:
"[This] is what this whole climate agreement signed by 190 nations and now ratified by 60 or so is designed to stop."
Remember, there is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call ... the mainstream media.
DO LIES MATTER?
Govt lies, weather channel lies
Nassau ground observations DID NOT match weather statements on Matthew. The govt has been lying to them about Hurricane Matthew intensity to make exaggerated point on climate. ALSO The govt can and does steer and intensify storms, govt wanted attention OFF HELLary scandals.

All the attention is on Hurricane Matthew, but you may not have heard about Atlantic Hurricane Nicole. Nicole could alter Matthew's course for the worse. The 2 storms could interact with one another in something called the Fujiwhara Effect. This means instead of heading up the East Coast, Matthew could turn around and head back toward Florida.
