Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC
946 PM EDT Tue Sep 11 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
A front will remain stalled near the area through tonight. The
boundary will weaken Wednesday and Florence will approach the
North Carolina Thursday. Please refer to the National Hurricane
Center for the latest information regarding Hurricane Florence.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...

Region remains very moist within a plume of very high PWAT
values aoa 2.0 inches. Showers,for the most part, have remained
south of the fcst area this evening, but guidance show that
they could work their way northward overnight. Will maintain sct
PoPs overnight. Models don`t show a strong signal for dense fog
like they did last night, but expect low cigs to persist or even
lower later tonight with vsbys in the 3-5sm range.


&&

.SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/...
The boundary will gradually diffuse Wednesday, but
southeasterly winds will advect moisture and higher humidity
into the area, resulting in some instability. Thus there will be
continued chances for showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be
in the upper 70s to mid 80s, with lows in the 60s and 70s.

By Thursday and Thursday night, Florence will be approaching
the southeast US. Isolated to scattered showers/thunderstorms
will continue to be possible during this time-frame, although
coverage will be highly dependent on the ultimate track of the
storm. Highs will be in the low 80s. Please refer to National
Hurricane Center products for the latest information.

&&

.LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Hurricane Florence is poised to make landfall along the North
Carolina coast early Friday morning. Shortly thereafter, Florence
will stall somewhere over North Carolina or Virginia, but uncertainty
still remains in exactly where. For our area, the primary threat
from Florence will be the potential for a prolonged period of heavy
rainfall across the region. With uncertainty remaining around the
exact track of Florence after landfall, it is a bit early to
highlight a specific area for heavy rain potential, however the
threat for significant rainfall and flooding is there for the
weekend into early next week, so continue to monitor the latest
forecast for new information.

Strong easterly flow to the north of the system will also raise
coastal flooding concerns along the Chesapeake Bay and Tidal
Potomac. Currently the strongest winds associated with Florence are
expected to stay off to the south of our area. However, there could
still be a threat for downed trees given saturated soil and at least
some wind. We will continue to post updates as new data and
information becomes available to us. The official track forecast
(and plenty of other information about the storm) is available on
the National Hurricane Center`s website.

&&

.AVIATION /02Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...

Expect IFR cigs overnight with 3-5sm VSBYs. With the stalled
boundary in the area, showers and thunderstorms will be possible
each day, though coverage will remain scattered.

From Thursday night onward, impacts in terms of rain intensity,
ceilings and visibility at each terminal rely heavily on the
progression of Florence. Wind direction and speed would rely on
Florence as well, even though our direction would be
predominantly from the northeast or east depending on the
location and intensity of Florence. Please refer to the National
Hurricane Center for more information.

&&

.MARINE...
The main marine hazards through Wednesday night will be fog
during the nighttime hours, and scattered thunderstorms during
the afternoon and evening. Winds will be generally onshore but
light.

The chance for SCA conditions will increase Thursday into
Thursday night as the pressure gradient tightens in advance of
Hurricane Florence. A few showers and thunderstorms may also be
possible Thursday afternoon.

Tropical storm conditions are possible Friday into Saturday,
especially across the main stem Chesapeake Bay and Tidal Potomac.
Winds will ultimately depend on the exact track of Florence though,
so refer to the National Hurricane Center for the latest.

&&

.HYDROLOGY...
Flooding is still occurring along the Potomac River and some of
its tributaries. Please refer to the latest River Flood
Warnings for more details.

Details regarding precipitation amounts from Hurricane Florence
remain uncertain at this time, but any heavy rain could pose a
serious threat given saturated soil conditions and high river
levels.

&&

.TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING...
The onshore flow will gradually weaken through tonight.
Anomalies should subside a bit...but remain elevated due to the
onshore flow. Astronomical tides will also start decreasing as
we are past the new moon. Minor flooding is expected across
most areas through tonight, with moderate flooding for
sensitive areas (Straits Point, Annapolis and also Washington
DC/Alexandria). Coastal flood headlines remain in effect, and
may have to be extended farther in time through Wednesday and
beyond.

Fresh water from the Potomac River will continue to cause
moderate flooding for Washington DC through tonight and
possibly into Wednesday (especially near Georgetown). To view
inundation maps of potential flooding in and near Washington DC,
visit http:/weather.gov/washington/potomacinundationmaps.

Refer to the Coastal Flood Headlines for more details.

Toward the end of the week, eyes will turn to the onshore flow
and possible surge to the north of Hurricane Florence, which
could bring increasing water levels again.

&&

.LWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
DC...Coastal Flood Warning until 4 PM EDT Wednesday for DCZ001.
MD...Coastal Flood Advisory until 8 AM EDT Wednesday for MDZ018.
Coastal Flood Advisory until 2 PM EDT Wednesday for MDZ508.

          FEMA Simulated A Cat 4 Hurricane Striking East Coast Just Months Before Florence      Cache   Translate Page      

Earlier this year, government disaster planners simulated a Category 4 hurricane strike alarmingly similar to Hurricane Florence unfolding on a dangerously vulnerable stretch of the US East Coast. 

A fictional "Hurricane Cora" was modeled to charge up the Chesapeake Bay and strike Washington, D.C., created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Argonne National Laboratory.


Simulated Cone graphical forecast for Hurricane Cora, used for the 2018 National Level Exercise. (This is NOT an actual hurricane, but is used for testing our nation’s preparedness for hurricane impacts.)

Associated Press (AP) said the computer models showed "catastrophic damage" from the hurricane, which some experts warn that Hurricane Florence could produce a disaster comparable to 2005's Hurricane Katrina in the Carolinas and surrounding states.

The fictional hurricane knocked out the power grid for most gas stations in the Mid-Atlantic region, severely damaged a nuclear power plant, and blocked critical shipping channels in the Chesapeake Bay, according to a Department of Energy simulation manual.

"What they were trying to do was create a worst-case scenario, but it's a very realistic scenario," said Joshua Behr, a research professor at Virginia's Old Dominion University who is involved in disaster modeling and simulations.

Realistic indeed, it just so happens that months after the government's Cora simulation, Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm is expected to hit the same general area -- roughly 200 miles south of the modeled area in Wilmington, N.C.

On Wednesday, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the storm was 575 miles southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina. It had maximum sustained winds of 130 mph and could make landfall in the Carolinas by the end of the week.

AP also said the fictional storm made landfall in the densely populated Hampton Roads region, causing a massive 15-foot storm surge and more than 9 inches of rain to the coastal area within the first six hours of landfall. Models showed main routes -- used for evacuations as well as for first responders -- in and around the coastal regions of Virginia, were severely damaged and allowed a delayed response of search and rescue teams.

Cora slammed +100 mph sustained winds into three nuclear power stations. One was critically damaged. Models also showed thirty-three major power substations were at risk for storm surge and inland flooding.

Ed Vallee, a meteorologist at Vallee Wx Consulting, warned that "Florence will approach the Carolina coast Thursday night into Friday with winds in excess of 100 mph along with flooding rains. This system will approach the Brunswick Nuclear Plant as well as the Duke-Sutton Steam Plant."

He tweeted several weather models Tuesday morning that forecasts rainfall amounts 15-40" range in some regions along the coast.

One of those models is the ECMWF Total Precipitation, which shows the most torrential rain could be situated around the two nuclear power plants in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Aside from Florence, the fictional storm damaged critical roads, bridges, and debris blocked the Newport News Channel and other waterways.

Coast Guard Station Cape Charles lost power, and Coast Guard Station Chincoteague was severely damaged by high winds. Models also showed cataphoric damage at Reagan National Airport in Washington.

The make-believe hurricane knocked out hundreds of cell towers, and power was lost to 135 data centers in Virginia and another 60 in Maryland.

The scenario projected hurricane-force winds for a 50-mile radius from the storm's center, damaging residential neighborhoods and critical infrastructure.

AP notes that the Cora hurricane simulation makes no mention of deaths and injuries but instead focuses on infrastructure.

Another remarkable similarity between the Cora simulation and Florence's path: already saturated ground on that part of the Mid-Atlantic coast.

"What I fear is that saturation, combined with a storm that kind of stalls out," said Behr, who has studied vulnerable populations in the paths of Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast and in the Hampton Roads region.

If parts of the East Coast, Mid-Atlantic, and or the South East are deluged with water, it could be a Katrina 2.0, Behr said.

"I believe that those patterns are also going to manifest in Hampton Roads if and when a large storm hits," he said. "The vulnerability of our populations are quite similar to New Orleans. Displacement, pain, suffering, property loss. All those things are going to play out in a fashion that has parallels to how Katrina played out."

AP warns that Hampton Roads, a coastal region inhabited by 1.7 million people in cities such as Norfolk, Virginia, and Virginia Beach, could experince difficulties in evacuations.

"I've heard people say Virginia Beach is the world's largest cul-de-sac in the sense that there are not a lot of ways to evacuate," said Michelle Covi, an assistant professor of practice with Old Dominion University and Virginia Sea Grant, a science group that works with other universities in the region on coastal issues.

"You can't go north because of the Chesapeake Bay," she said. "You can't really go south, and in this case you wouldn't want to because the storm is that way. You generally want to go west, but again there are lots of water bodies."

It seems as government disaster planners at FEMA have been preparing for "the big one," maybe it will be Florence?

Hurricane Florence is coming to the east coast


The deadly hurricane Florence is making it’s way into the East Coast of the US at 16 MPH, right now measured as a category 3 hurricane of 335 miles in diameter and expected to grow back into a category 4 on Thursday, this dangerous phenomenon is being described as “The storm of a lifetime” and is threatening the lives of 10 million people.

US president Donald Trump said that this will be one of the biggest hurricanes to ever hit the US, and has urged civilians to heed the instructions of of state and local officials, he added “It is imperative that everyone follow local evacuation orders. This storm is extremely dangerous. Be SAFE!”

The warnings and watches range from Virginia to South Carolina. A Storm Surge Warning and a Hurricane Warning are both in effect for South Santee River, South Carolina to Duck, North Carolina and the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds, including the Neuse and Pamlico Rivers. A Storm Surge Watch and a Hurricane Watch is in effect for Edisto Beach, South Carolina to South Santee River, South Carolina.

A Tropical Storm Warning and Storm Surge Watch is in effect for north of Duck, North Carolina to the North Carolina/Virginia border. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for north of the North Carolina/Virginia border to Cape Charles Light, Virginia and for the Chesapeake Bay south of New Point Comfort.

Florence had the strength of a category 4 hurricane and was over 400 miles in diameter this Wednesday morning, but lost some momentum over the day, however Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator Jeff Byard warned that despite its slight weakening, Florence will still be an extremely dangerous hurricane, and that it will likely regain it’s power tomorrow morning, and touch ground on Thursday night or on Friday.

“Do you want to get hit with a train or do you want to get hit with a cement truck,” Byard asked.

Florence will pass over two nuclear power plants — the Brunswick Nuclear Plant, which is located 30 miles south of Wilmington, as well as the Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant in New Hill, about 23 miles from Raleigh according to the proyected route.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC
922 PM EDT Wed Sep 12 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
A weak front will remain stalled across the region through
tonight. The boundary will linger in the region while Florence
approaches the North Carolina coast Thursday. Please refer to
the National Hurricane Center for the latest information
regarding Hurricane Florence.

&&

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THURSDAY MORNING/...
Surface front remains stalled near the region this evening. Most
of the shower/thunderstorm activity from earlier this evening
has dissipated, although a few showers are possible during the
overnight hours. Areas of low clouds and fog are likely again
overnight into Thursday morning. Lows from the upper 60s to low
70s.

&&

.SHORT TERM /6 AM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/...
The weak front could linger across part of our area. It is hard
to determine where exactly the front will set up with high
pressure building to the northeast, but it will remain the focal
zone for any showers or thunderstorms to develop Thursday into
Thursday evening. Hurricane Florence will continue to move
toward the North Carolina Coast. A blocking ridge will be
overhead, providing some subsidence, so showers and
thunderstorms should be widely scattered. The highest chance
will be across the eastern half of our CWA. Highs will reach
the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Thursday night through Friday night has the potential to be
unsettled as Florence remains to our south (consult NHC for latest
track), though the extent of which is a bit in question. In general,
higher rain chances will be favored with southward extent across the
area. There is some potential for banded features developing, again
mainly across southern portions of the area. Given uncertainty in
these details, the extent of the heavy rain threat is of
moderate confidence. Higher totals are more likely south of our
forecast area. Strong winds are unlikely to be a factor, though
the persistent onshore flow will raise coastal flooding
concerns (see section below). Daytime temperatures will likely
decrease a bit with the thicker cloud cover expected.

&&

.LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Saturday into Sunday, a upper level ridge will be positioned over
the Midwest and Great Lakes region. This will correspond to a high
pressures system at the surface over the Great Lakes. The upper
level ridge will help to keep Hurricane Florence further south in
the Carolinas and the SE United States. A high will also be located
over New England leading a general easterly flow off of the ocean.
The high pressure over New England will try to shift southward over
the northern parts Maryland. This will lead to the potential for
some clearing skies on Sunday. Scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms will be potential. Some light showers from the outer
bands of the hurricane may reach into our region this weekend.

Monday into Tuesday, the forecast is still uncertain and depends on
how the remnants of Hurricane Florence move after making landfall.
There is the potential that our region may receive leftover showers
and heavy rain from Florence as it traverses inland. If the these
showers move into our region, there will be the potential for
extended rain showers and periods of heavy rain. As most of our
region is still supersaturated from previous rain events, localized
flooding will be a possibility. At this time the exact nature of how
Florence changes and moves once it makes landfall is still
uncertain. This system has the potential to cause addition rainfall
in our region or completely bypass and only cause scattered showers.
At this time it best to stay to tuned to the National Hurricane
Center website and our local website at weather.gov/lwx for
continued updates as we proceed into the weekend.

&&

.AVIATION /01Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
A return to IFR, and locally LIFR, is expected overnight as low
stratus and areas of fog/mist redevelop. This will persist
through Thursday morning, with some minor improvement (to MVFR)
during the afternoon hours. Isolated to scattered
showers/thunderstorms will be around Thursday afternoon.

This same pattern will continue through Friday night, with the
potential for extended periods of MVFR/IFR, especially
overnights, with showers and a few thunderstorms around at
times.

For the weekend and into early next week, potential for sub-VFR
conditions exist with showers/thunderstorms associated with
Florence.

&&

.MARINE...
A stalled front will remain near the waters tonight with sub-
SCA conditions expected. On Thursday, Florence will be
approaching the Carolina coast with a tightening gradient to its
north. Thus a Small Craft Advisory for the waters surrounding
southern Maryland on Thursday and Thursday night remains in
effect. The SCA will likely need to be extended in time and
perhaps in area depending on the size of Florence`s wind field
and its eventual track. The probability for gale/tropical storm
force winds is low at this time.

Fro Saturday and Sunday winds will be out of the northeast. Small
craft advisories may be needed.

&&

.HYDROLOGY...
Details regarding precipitation amounts from Hurricane Florence
remain uncertain at this time, but any heavy rain could pose a
threat given saturated soil conditions and high river levels.
The timing of such threat is also uncertain, given continued
spread of model solutions of the track of Florence`s remnants
into early next week.

&&

.TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING...
Water level anomalies have been trending downward through the
day today, and the trend should continue into Thursday before
increasing again by Thursday night and Friday as Florence
approaches the Carolina coastline. Freshwater input is heavily
influencing both the far northern Chesapeake Bay and upper tidal
Potomac. Coastal Flood Advisories are in effect for several
sites into Thursday morning.

The threat of moderate coastal flooding increases again by
Friday and over the weekend.

&&

.LWX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
DC...Coastal Flood Advisory until 2 PM EDT Thursday for DCZ001.
MD...Coastal Flood Advisory until 4 AM EDT Thursday for MDZ508.
Coastal Flood Advisory from 3 AM to 8 AM EDT Thursday for
MDZ017.
VA...Coastal Flood Advisory until 2 PM EDT Thursday for VAZ054.
WV...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory from 6 AM Thursday to 6 AM EDT Friday for

          Mute Swans and Their Chesapeake Bay Habitats:Proceedings of a Symposium      Cache   Translate Page      

The symposium “Mute Swans and their Chesapeake Bay Habitats,” held on June 7, 2001, provided a forum for biologists and managers to share research findings and management ideas concerning the exotic and invasive mute swan (Cygnus olor). This species has been increasing in population size and is considered by many to be a problem in regard to natural food resources in the Bay that are used by native waterfowl during the winter months. Other persons, however, feel that resource managers are attempting to create a problem to justify more killing of waterfowl by hunters. Some persons also believe that managers should focus on the larger issues causing the decline of native food resources, such as the unabated human population increase in the Bay watershed and in the immediate coastal areas of the Bay. The symposium, sponsored by the Wildfowl Trust of North America and the U.S. Geological Survey, provided the atmosphere for presentation of mute swan data and opinions in a collegial setting where discussion was welcomed and was often informative and enthusiastic. An interesting historic review of the swan in regard to the history of mankind was presented, followed by a discussion on the positive and negative effects of invasive species. Biologists from different parts of the continent discussed the population status of the species in several states in the east and in the Great Lakes area. Data on the food habits of this species were presented in regard to submerged aquatic vegetation, and an interesting discussion on the role that the food habits of Canada geese in regard to native vegetation was presented. Findings and recommendations of the Mute Swan Task Force were presented. Finally, a representative of the Friends of Animals gave a thought-provoking presentation in defense of the mute swan. The presentations, in general, provided the necessary information and recommendations to allow managers to proceed with management of this controversial species with new and valuable perspectives.

          Florida Keys Tourism Rebounds with Fresh New Resorts, New Airlift      Cache   Translate Page      

Almost a year after Hurricane Irma passed through the Florida Keys, Hawks Cay Resort, one of the Florida Keys’ largest properties, has reopened following a $50 million renovation.


Owners of Hawks Cay, situated on Duck Key near Marathon, used the opportunity to enhance the property’s appeal to travelers.

“After Hurricane Irma we didn’t just look at recovering from the storm,” said Hawks Cay Managing Director Sheldon Suga. “That would have been the quickest and easiest way to do this, but it was an opportunity for us to re-imagine Hawks Cay.”

Among enhancements guests can experience are completely renovated rooms, two new restaurants and a new oceanfront, adults-only relaxation area called Oasis Cay with pool, food and beverage facilities.


Return of the resort’s 177 hotel rooms boost the Keys lodging inventory to just over 90 percent operational following the Sept. 10, 2017, tropical cyclone, Keys tourism officials said.

All-new and fully refurbished properties continue to be unveiled throughout the 125-mile-long island chain. Nearly all resorts impacted by Irma are projected to be fully open before the end of 2018.

New Airlift


Beginning Oct. 4, United Airlines is to increase to year-round (from seasonal) daily nonstop service to Key West from New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport on 70-seat E170 aircraft. During peak travel season, February through May 2019, United is to add a second flight into Key West from Newark.

Through mid-December, United is to operate Saturday and Sunday nonstop service between Key West and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. From mid-December through May 2019, United is to increase its Key West–Chicago frequency to a daily flight.

On Dec. 24, American Airlines is to resume nonstop winter and spring service into Key West from Dallas–Fort Worth, operating daily flights through April 1, 2019, on 76-passenger E175 regional jets. The service is being continued due to strong performance with its summer seasonal nonstop service on the same route.

          Study Of Spring Creek Watershed, Centre County Finds Conservation Dairy Farming Could Help PA Meet Chesapeake Bay Water Quality Targets      Cache   Translate Page      
By Jeff Mulhollem, Penn State News

If the majority of dairy farms in Pennsylvania fully adopt conservation best-management practices, the state may be able to achieve its total maximum daily load water-quality target for the Chesapeake Bay, according to researchers.
That is the conclusion of a novel assessment of the simulated effects of implementing a conservation dairy-farming system on all dairy farms in the Spring Creek watershed, a small drainage in Centre County.
In the simulations, the conservation dairy-farming systems-- which have been developed and tested by Penn State researchers over the last decade-- produce the majority of the feed and forage crops consumed by their cattle, use no-till planting, have continuous diversified plant cover, and have one system to employ manure injection.
Using a variation of the Soil and Water Assessment Tool-- known as SWAT-- which was customized and calibrated for the karst topography and hydrology in the Spring Creek watershed in earlier Penn State research, researchers modeled nutrient and sediment-loading processes of four dairy-farming scenarios that differed in land area, feed-production and nutrient-input strategies.
They compared nonpoint pollution generated by "typical" existing Pennsylvania dairy farms that include some no-till and limited cover cropping, with dairy farms under conservation management.
The customized SWAT simulated the four dairy-cropping scenarios for a 12-year period. All four dairy farms compared had 65 milking cows and young stock, fed the same dairy ration, and were assumed to produce the same amount of manure with the same nutrient composition.
But the land needed to produce the crops differed among the four farming scenarios, and the conservation farms had more land over which to grow feed and apply manure.
Compared to the "typical" Pennsylvania dairy farm that employs some best management practices, produces all the herd's forage, and purchases most of the cattle feed grain, the enhanced conservation dairy-cropping scenarios improved water quality by achieving significant pollution reductions.
Over the 12-year SWAT simulation, they cut the number of in-stream peaks of nutrients and sediment and reduced average concentration of sediment by 31 percent, organic nitrogen by 41 to 53 percent, nitrate by 23 percent, organic phosphorus by 36-45 percent and soluble phosphorus by 32 to 43 percent.
Both conservation scenarios also decreased nitrous oxide emissions by reducing denitrification, but the scenario that included manure injection retarded 91 percent of the nitrogen volatilization that occurred in the broadcast-manure scenario.
"We wanted to evaluate what happens at a whole watershed scale if dairy farmers implement different practices," said Heather Karsten, associate professor of crop production ecology, Penn State, whose research group in the College of Agricultural Sciences conducted the study. "So, we created these model farms to represent the range of dairy-farming systems that could be present in a watershed."
The conservation farms were based on the average Pennsylvania dairy farm acreage and herd size at the time the researchers designed the field study in 2010.
"They have twice as much land and are growing all of their feed and forage, which helps them be profitable, because feed costs account for at least 50 percent of milk-production costs," she said. "And, perhaps most important, they are not applying manure to the same land as often because they have more land to spread it on. In addition, when the conservation farms apply manure in fall, they apply it to winter annual crops that are either cover crops, that retain some of the nutrients, or silage crops, that utilize more of the fall-applied manure to produce forage crops."
Of course, achieving such large-scale adoption of conservation dairy-farming practices will not be simple, easy or cheap, Karsten conceded. Farmers will need access to affordable land to grow more feed for their herds and apply manure at lower rates.
And, she pointed out, technical assistance and financial incentives will be needed to facilitate large-scale adoption of best-management practices such as manure injection, winter annual silage production and cover cropping.
Only about a third of the land in Spring Creek watershed is agricultural, according to lead researcher M.G. Mostofa Amin, now a faculty member in the Department of Irrigation and Water Management at Bangladesh Agricultural University.
A postdoctoral scholar and research associate when he led the Penn State study, he noted that Spring Creek is one of the most studied streams in the East.
In earlier research, Amin used data from three U.S. Geological Survey streamflow- monitoring stations in the watershed to customize the SWAT model to simulate the geology and hydrological processes that contribute to sediment and nutrient loads in the Spring Creek watershed.
"Using SWAT to simulate and compare four farming systems over 12 years at the watershed scale enabled the team to assess the impact of large-scale implementation of the dairy-farming scenarios," Amin said. "We learned that the conservation dairy-farming scenarios can reduce nutrient and sediment losses from agricultural lands and help achieve targeted total maximum daily loads into the Chesapeake Bay."
Also involved in the research, published in the September issue of Agricultural Systems, were Douglas Beegle, distinguished professor of agronomy, Penn State and Peter Kleinman and Tamie Veith, both with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Pasture Systems and Watershed Management Research Unit.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Pasture Systems and Watershed Management Research Unit, and the Center for Nutrient Solutions at Penn State supported this research.

          Millions on the U.S. coast prepare as monster storm approaches      Cache   Translate Page      

Millions of people in the path of Hurricane Florence are frantically preparing for a monster storm that’s anticipated to make landfall as early as Friday afternoon. Residents in states from Virginia to Georgia – especially those who live in flood-prone areas or on the coast – must decide whether to stay or go.

Here are some snapshots of a region awaiting the hurricane:

Hunkering down with the cats

One South Carolina family living two blocks from the ocean thought long and hard about leaving before Hurricane Florence hit, but they just couldn’t afford it.

Mercedes O’Neill said she is scared to be in her North Myrtle Beach home with her boyfriend, her 6-year-old daughter and a son due Sept. 27 when the winds and rain pick up. But she says they couldn’t afford to stay in a hotel or to drive to a shelter. And she didn’t want to leave her cats behind.

A family member rented a room, but when the storm slowed down, they couldn’t afford any extra days.

O’Neill’s boyfriend Kelly Johnson says the couple needs to get back to work as soon as they can and returning after an evacuation can take several days.

A final glass of wine

Hours before a mandatory evacuation took effect, Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, resident Phoebe Tesh paused while loading her car to have a glass of wine on the steps of the house where she and her husband rent an apartment.

“We just love it down here so much we want to spend as time as we can,” she said.

Tesh, who works in information technology for UNC-Wilmington, said she and her husband have been ferrying valuables to her parents’ house on the mainland in Wilmington, where they planned to ride out the storm.

“We started out with anything that cost over $200. Now we’re down to anything over $30,” she said, waving toward an SUV crammed with plastic bins and various items, including a block of chef’s knives. “Next time, we need a box truck.”

She and her husband, a professor at UNC-W, love the beach so much they sold a house on the mainland to rent there full time five years ago. She said they typically evacuate for major storms, and even neighbors who tend to ride out hurricanes are leaving.

“We don’t know of anyone who’s staying for the storm,” she said.

Coming out of retirement to help

Looking over a fleet of utility trucks staged near Charlotte Motor Speedway, retired utility worker Paul Anderson confessed Wednesday that he gets a rush from helping out with recovery efforts. The pay is good, but that’s not why he does it.

“It’s adrenaline,” said Anderson, 59, of Lake City, Florida. “As soon as I get the call to go to work, I’m a changed man. My wife will tell you that. It makes you feel good to go help people. Plus, you get paid.”

Anderson didn’t hesitate this time, gathering people from Florida and Alabama and preparing to roll toward Wilmington, North Carolina. At least two dozen trucks were parked near the speedway as workers loaded equipment into a trailer.

“When (my boss) asked me if I’d go down to the coast, I said yeah. And he said ‘You know what you’re getting into, don’t you?’ and I said, ‘That’s where I want to be. I want to be right in the middle of it.“’

Finally, Anderson admitted to one fear.

“I’m scared of the water,” he said. “I’m not scared of the wind. (Hurricane) Irma had a lot of wind. You don’t want to be out in it but you can protect yourself from that. This water thing, we’ve never had to face that.”

Learning from past experience

Seth Bazemore lives in one of the most flood-prone neighborhoods in Norfolk, Virginia: A sliver of land known as Willoughby Spit that juts into Chesapeake Bay like a hitch-hiker’s thumb.

Previous hurricanes have made him a survivor.

On Wednesday, his brick house was lined with sandbags. Six bilge pumps sat inside on the ground floor, ready to push out the heavy rains and possible flood surge that the outer bands of Hurricane Florence are forecast to deliver.

“It looks like a ship moored to a pier,” said the 62-year-old engineering manager at Newport News Shipbuilding, a nearby shipyard the builds aircraft carriers and submarines for the U.S. Navy.

“I’ve learned from past experience,” he said. “But believe you me, if I think it’ll be worse and more than my setup can handle, we’re out of here.”

Bazemore was feeling some relief Wednesday. The forecast showed that Florence may strike the East Coast even further south in the Carolinas and bring less rain and wind to Virginia.

Evacuating with a newborn

Colin Richards was among the military personnel leaving coastal Virginia and North Carolina ahead of Hurricane Florence. Many of the region’s ships had already headed out to sea.

The 28-year-old mostly was concerned for his daughter, who is one month and two days old.

“It’s very simple,” he said Wednesday morning. “We don’t want to live without power with a newborn.”

Richards is a U.S. Navy diver based at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story in Virginia Beach. He and his wife, Louilyn, live in the Norfolk neighborhood of Oceanview, which sits on the southern edge of the Chesapeake Bay.

Florence is projected to strike the Carolinas. But heavy rains, winds and flooding are expected in Virginia.

“It’s just not worth the risk,” Richards said. “We’ve lost power frequently in the past.”

The family planned to head to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where Richards is from. He said many of his neighbors in Norfolk planned to wait out the storm with generators.

          Hurricane Florence's winds and rain begin lashing Carolinas      Cache   Translate Page      

MIAMI (AP) — Hurricane Florence is at the doorstep of North and South Carolina, and she's not going away anytime soon.

Outer bands from the hurricane are now lashing land , at least a full day before the National Hurricane Center expects the slow-moving storm's eye to blow ashore around the North Carolina-South Carolina line. Officials say people refusing to evacuate could end up alone, drenched and in the dark, as rescue crews won't go out to help in winds above 50 mph (80 kph).

BY THE NUMBERS

—Size: Hurricane-force winds extend up to 80 miles (130 kilometers) from the center, and tropical storm-force winds extend up to 195 miles (315 kilometers). Overall, Florence is about 400 miles (644 kilometers) wide.

—Rainfall: parts of the Carolinas could see 20 inches (50 centimeters) to 30 inches (76 centimeters), with isolated areas getting 40 inches (101 centimeters), over seven days along the coast

—Storm surge: up to 13 feet (nearly 4 meters), and seawaters could push inland 2 miles (3 kilometers), depending on how long Florence lingers

—Intensity: maximum sustained winds at 105 mph (169 kph) down from a peak of 140 mph (225 kph) but still extremely dangerous

—Get out: 1.7 million people under mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders, and more than 10 million people live in places currently under storm watches or warnings

—Grounded: Nearly 1,200 flights canceled through Friday

—Going dark: Duke Energy anticipates 1 million to 3 million homes and businesses losing power

FACES OF FLORENCE

Images captured by Associated Press journalists show the angst of evacuation and solitary beachgoers finding moments of calm before the storm.

HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER STORM

Florence has it all : Hot ocean temperatures that fuel hurricanes. Favorable wind patterns. Higher sea levels that exacerbate storm surge. Cloud cover that could encompass multiple states. And an unusual combination of other weather systems that likely will stall Florence when it hits land, allowing it to sit for days and dump huge amounts of rain.

WHAT TRUMP SAID

Worried about how the government will respond to Hurricane Florence's devastation? President Donald Trump said there was nothing to fear because his administration did such good work responding to last year's storms - including Hurricane Maria, which led to the deaths of 2,975 people in Puerto Rico in the six months after the storm, according to an estimate by George Washington University. In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, Trump said the government "got A Pluses" for storm recovery in Texas and Florida and "did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico." His remarks fell flat in Puerto Rico where islanders are continuing to struggle to recover a year after the Category 4 storm. Trump doubled down Thursday morning , arguing without evidence that Maria's death toll estimate in Puerto Rico is wrong and calling it a plot by Democrats to make him "look as bad as possible."

MILITARY SAFEGUARDS

Florence is headed straight for some of the most well-known military bases in the country. The Navy, Air Force and Army have been moving people, ships and aircrafts out of harm's way, though evacuations were not mandatory at bases such as Camp Lejeune . The commanding general says anyone remaining on base will have food, water and protection despite being in the projected path of the storm.

ECONOMIC HIT

Businesses across the Carolinas, Virginia and Georgia will likely suffer financial lossesfrom the approaching storm, with ports closing, farmers moving their livestock and expected power outages that could last for weeks. The losses won't be easily or quickly overcome. But it could have been worse: Labor Day marked the end of the peak tourism season in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and other coastal getaways. There are now fewer tourists to send away.

TOXIC WATERS

North Carolina has roughly 2,100 industrial-scale pork farms containing more than 9 million hogs. Florence's heavy rains could cause an environmental disaster if waste from hog manure pits, coal ash dumps and other industrial sites washes into homes or threatens drinking water supplies. When Hurricane Floyd made landfall near Cape Fear in 1999 as a Category 2 storm, bloated carcasses of hundreds of thousands of hogs, chickens and other drowned livestock bobbed in a nose-stinging soup of fecal matter, pesticides, fertilizer and gasoline so toxic that fish flopped helplessly to escape it.

GULLAH-GEECHEE

Elder relatives carry as much weight as meteorologists in a tight-knit community of slave descendants on the South Carolina coast. St. Helena Island near the South Carolina-Georgia line is used to riding out big storms — from one that killed an estimated 2,000 people in 1893 to Tropical Storm Irma last year. But barber Josh Dais says the island's 5,000 residents now are trying to decide whether to flee ahead of Hurricane Florence. He says: "If Mama and Grandma are going, then a lot of people are leaving." Smaller enclaves of Gullah, referred to as Geechee in some areas, are scattered along the Southeast coast from North Carolina to Florida.

SPEEDWAY CAMPING

Some Florence evacuees are steering toward Bristol Motor Speedway near the Tennessee-Virginia border and Atlanta Motor Speedway , where campgrounds have been opened for people fleeing the storm. At least two dozen utility trucks gathered near Charlotte Motor Speedway to prepare to move in and start restoring power as soon as conditions are safe.

VALUABLE POSSESSIONS

What would you take if a major hurricane was threatening to inundate or pull apart your home? One North Carolina woman packed flowers to leave on her son's grave. Evacuees also loaded up their vehicles with extra gas cans, their pets, coolers filled with sandwich meat, family photographs and blankets. The shopping list for people who have decided to ride out the storm at home: plywood to board up their windows, sandbags, bilge pumps, generators, trash bags, potato chips, bottled water and wine.

CHICKENS IN HOME

Some Virginian neighbors decided to be cooped up with their chickens and other pets as Florence approaches. The utility room of John Hembree and Scot Perkins' Chesapeake home has become a refuge for their neighbor's birds as well as their own chickens, three dogs, turtle and cat. The couple said they would have had to travel too far inland to find a hotel that would have accepted their animals as guests.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Aside from safety concerns, Atlantic Coast Conference schools face scheduling obstacles , monetary implications and bowl considerations. The list of canceled football games included No. 13 Virginia Tech's home game against East Carolina, No. 14 West Virginia's trip to North Carolina State and No. 18 UCF's visit to North Carolina. Virginia has moved its Saturday home game against Ohio to Nashville, Tennessee. Presbyterian has cancelled its football game with Stetson on Saturday.
