Rain ramps up for the upcoming weekend
Rain ramps up for the upcoming weekend
Start to tally a list of indoor plans and activities to help float your spirits through a raw, windy and water-logged weekend. Tomorrow is dry. Yes, you read that right, dry. And we may actually see a bit of sunshine before an Atmospheric River comes rushing into greater Portland this weekend. Saturday will feature light rain and gusty winds whereas Sunday will serve up less wind but heavier rain. Saturday night is sandwiched right in between, and thus the wind and times of heavy rain will make for perfect board game and wine, while warm-and-cozy-inside weather.

“We just want them (Entergy) to give us some kind of help or credit,” Hunter said. “Just something to say that they care; that they care about what happened to us.”
Major weather events slammed massive parts of the United States this past week. About 100 million people were under weather alerts just this on Wednesday. Devastating tornados, fires, winds, and dust storms stretched from the West coast through the Great Lakes region. However, even those who didn’t feel the effects of this week’s weather are still being affected by extreme weather that occurred months ago.
In Louisiana, communities that have been without electricity since Hurricane Ida in August, have continued to receive high electricity bills. In an interview with Kezia Setyawan in Houma Today, ​​Pointe-aux-Chenes resident, Brenda Billiot said, 
“Where are these readings coming from?” Billiot said. “They said I have until the 14th to pay before my power gets cut off but I don’t have any power anyways.”

One Pointe-aux-Chenes resident has been without power since Hurricane Ida. The only thing left standing on her property is the front porch — yet she’s received two bills from Entergy totaling about $600 since August. Great, infuriating report from @keziaasetyawan

This will be the wettest November in the history of Canada's west coast — if weather models hold.

Three more atmospheric rivers are arriving to the flood-soaked British Columbia coast over the next few days.
