The weather, currently.
Distaster fatigue is real, y'all. The blue tarps in this picture aren't from the tornado. The blue tarps are damage that still hasn't been repaired from Ida, or in some cases, possibly even Zeta. 2 major hurricanes and a strong tornado in back to back to back years here in SELA.
A tornado touched down in Arabi Louisiana and New Orlean’s 9th Ward on Tuesday evening— killing one person and leaving devastation in its wake. As of Wednesday evening, thousands are still without power.
The impacted area has sustained multiple severe weather events over the past decade including Hurricane Ida, about seven months ago. Many are still in recovery from Ida which knocked out the region’s electrical grid and left residents without power for months. Many homes still have tarps up on their roof from Ida damage.
Yesterday’s tornado combined several risk-enhancing factors— striking an already vulnerable community at night.
Imagine Water Works— one of the key mutual aid organizations that helped during Hurricane Ida recovery— shared links to mutual aid resources and places to donate.

Sending our neighbors love in the aftermath of tonight’s tornadoes across our area. Let’s help keep each other safe, like we always do.

Reminder: Just like a hurricane, please don’t wander out to Arabi to look at damage right now.

Climate Signals
43 of the 48 states that make up the contiguous U.S. will be warmer than normal in April, May, and June says @NOAA in its seasonal spring forecast.
This spring is going to be warmer than normal according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This is bad news for the ongoing megadrought in the western United States. According to NOAA, almost all of the Lower 48 will be warmer than normal this spring and most will be drier. 
NOAA climate scientist, Deke Arndt, said, “The reason the West is warming is climate change, especially over the multiple decade timeframe.”
This is the worst drought that the West has seen in 1,200 years. It is also a major driving factor in the worsening wildfire season.
