9780312371524: Hurricane Almanac: The Essential Guide to Storms Past, Present, and Future

Essential Information from CBS News' Hurricane Analyst

Bryan Norcross's pioneering and courageous TV coverage of Hurricane Andrew in 1992 helped millions of people in Florida cope with the killer storm. This revised and updated version of last year's popular almanac adds detailed stories of the powerful hurricanes of the past that would be catastrophes if they happened today and explores how explosive coastal development during a time of relatively few hurricanes has set the stage for mega-disasters. If hurricanes make landfall today at the rate they did in much of the twentieth century, how could we prevent the unimaginable destruction? A new section will also help you better understand hurricane advisories.

Bryan Norcross's Hurricane Almanac is two books in one. The first half is hurricane science, history, and perspectives on how we, as a society, deal with hurricanes. The second half is a personal guide to "Living Successfully in the Hurricane Zone." In addition to reviewing and explaining the relatively mild 2006 hurricane season, it looks forward to hurricane seasons to come, highlights the fascinating history of hurricanes interacting with civilization, and details our rapidly increasingly ability---but still with limitations---to predict the severity and tracks of storms. With preparation checklists and shopping lists, an easy-to-understand guide to the technical information coming from the National Hurricane Center, and critical practical information, Hurricane Almanac is your essential guide to coping with Mother Nature's greatest storms.

A provocative chapter entitled: How I'd Do It Better details Norcross's ideas for a better hurricane system.

1 Hurricanes Today
A New Era of Hurricanes—1995–2006
Hurricanes come in cycles. A casual glance at a list of active hurricane seasons shows clusters of activity in the 1880s–1890s and 1920s-1960s, while the early twentieth century and the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s look relatively calm. Another active period started in 1995 and continues today.
Dramatic economic growth, immigration, increasing longevity, and other factors coincided with the hurricane downturn of the late 1960s to mid-1990s, an unfortunate and dangerous confluence of events. The effect can be seen throughout the coastal zone. Would 18 million people be living in Florida today if hurricanes had continued coming at the rate they occurred in the late 1940s and 2004 and 2005? I wonder.
Unfortunately, the people in government with the responsibility for seeing that citizens are safe during disasters were (and are) not good students of history. Most coastal areas, including the state of Florida, were developed without regard to the hurricanes of the past and without protection from the hurricanes to come. Thus, future disasters are guaranteed.
Hurricane cycles correlate with the natural fluctuation in the temperature of the ocean. This chart compares the Atlantic Ocean water temperature to normal. The match with hurricane activity is remarkable. Notice that the late 1800s and the period from the late 1920s to the late 1960s show warmer than normal temperatures.
They were active hurricane periods as well. The swing in temperature is only about plus or minus one degree Fahrenheit, but the amount of energy that slight difference makes, when spread out over the entire Atlantic Basin, is significant. See “Global Warming and Hurricanes,” page 112.
Hurricane Season 2006
Every hurricane has its own personality, and every hurricane season does as well. The contrast between hurricane activity in 2006 and in the mega year of 2005 could not be sharper. The number of storms was down by about two-thirds, and overall tropical-cyclone activity was down dramatically as well.
Four issues came into play:
• The temperature of the ocean water
• The upper-level winds
• The amount of moisture in the atmosphere over the tropical Atlantic
• Factors we don’t understand.
Ocean temperature. The sea-surface temperatures in the tropical Atlantic were somewhat cooler in 2006 than in the superheated year before, but still much warmer than the long-term average. The water was plenty warm for hurricanes to develop.
Upper-level winds. There was a lot of talk about the upper-level winds being unfavorable for hurricane formation, and at times that was the case. But, during the heart of the hurricane season, the wind regime was no less favorable than it was in 2005 over the prime development areas. Some systems were, no doubt, “sheared” by upper-level winds, but that happens to some systems every year. Even if some of the upper winds were driven by El Niño, clearly there were other factors involved.
Dry air. The air in the mid and upper levels of the tropical Atlantic was unusually dry in 2006. A tropical system is fueled by moist air from the ocean surface rising into the midlevels of the atmosphere. If the air there is dry, however, the fueling mechanism is disrupted.
The dryness was likely caused by two mechanisms. It seemed that an unusual amount of dry Saharan air lingered over the tropical Atlantic deep into the hurricane season. Also, the wind flow created by El Niño appears to have contributed.
The upper-level winds discussed above operate in a horizontal direction, shearing the tops off systems as they try to develop. There is also a vertical component to the wind, however. The El Niño-driven rising air in the Pacific spreads across the Atlantic, then descends, creating a “circulation cell.” The descending air warms and dries as it moves lower in the atmosphere where the barometric pressure is higher.
Everyday examples of this double-barreled physical phenomenon:
• A tire pump gets hot because air heats up when it is compressed, everything else being equal.
• A hair dryer warms the air going through it. Warmer air has a greater capacity to hold water. Therefore the air coming out the nozzle acts like a bigger sponge, holding more moisture. The amount of water in the air isn’t reduced, just its percentage of the air’s maximum capacity, making the air feel drier. (This percentage is known as the “relative humidity”)
Factors we don’t understand: Even with the somewhat cooler sea-surface, El Niño-affected upper-level winds, and drier-than-normal air, the atmospheric pattern over the hurricane-development areas was not all that bad. There were times during the 2006 hurricane season when the atmosphere appeared primed for tropical development, but it didn’t happen. Clearly there are other subtle factors involved that need more study to detect and understand. Jet-stream dip. Another player in the 2006 hurricane season was a persistent dip in the jet stream over the east coast of the United States.
The net effect of this pattern was to drive most of the significant storms to the north toward Bermuda and eventually the Maritimes of eastern Canada. Again, whether this unusually persistent dip was caused by El Niño, exacerbated by El Niño, or mostly caused by the natural randomness of weather patterns is unclear.
The net effect, however, was that the Bermuda high was much farther east than in 2005, and the steering currents kept the storms well away from the east coast. Tropical Storm Ernesto over the Florida straits, August 29, 2006. It appeared conditions were favorable for strengthening, but subtle factors kept the system’s top winds at only 45 mph.
Tropical Storm Ernesto. The only significant storm to affect the United States was Tropical Storm Ernesto, which came ashore in the Florida Keys the evening of August 29, 2006. (One year to the day after Katrina hit New Orleans.) It was mostly a nonevent at landfall.
Ernesto’s center spent nearly twenty-four hours over the Cuban landmass, which no doubt disrupted the storm’s low-level circulation. If it had emerged into the Straits of Florida sooner and had, therefore, twelve more hours over the deep, warm water, it could have been an entirely different story in South Florida. Ernesto continued to strengthen after it moved ashore over the Florida peninsula. (The central pressure at landfall was 1004mb when it came over the Upper Keys, 1,003 mb when it made landfall on the southern tip of the peninsula, and 1,000mb when the center moved offshore near Cape Canaveral a day later.)
Subjectively, the system had a reasonably well-defined circulation during its time over the Straits, and the water was plenty warm. It appears that some dry air and some unfavorable winds impacted the system during that time; the Hurricane Hunters reported that the system was slightly tilted. The computer models indicated that Ernesto would overcome the factors and be at least a strong tropical storm at landfall, but it was not to be.
The mechanisms involved were subtle. In the end, the computer models and the National Hurricane Center had the right idea. The track was accurately forecast for the sixty hours before landfall, although before that time the forecast cone was well west of the final track. The lesson here, for most people, is that little attention should be paid to the 5-Day forecast cone (I would prefer that the NHC didn’t offer it). The 3-Day Cone is the one to pay attention to.
The intensity forecast, on the other hand, never picked up the factors inhibiting intensification. But, based on the best risk analysis that modern science could offer, hurricane warnings were issued for the southern Florida peninsula. There was a good enough chance that Ernesto would intensify that full preparation was required.
Ernesto was a reminder that sometimes—quite often actually—things turn out for the good. Every storm that comes along doesn’t blow up in to a mega monster. That fact was easy to forget after the hurricane barrage of 2004 and 2005.
Hurricane Season 2005
Anytime there are a lot of landfalling storms, let alone a record-setting season such as 2005, lessons abound—big and small. In contrast to 2006, the biggest lesson of the hurricane season of 2005 was, the worst does happen! Hurricane Katrina reaches category 5 strength, August 28, 2005. Hurricane Wilma reaches category 5 strength with the lowest pressure ever measured in the Atlantic Basin, October 19, 2005. Courtesy NASA.
In case after case people suffered and property was destroyed because someone—a governmental body or official, a business owner or a private citizen—decided to ignore hurricane history, ignore hurricane research, and hope for the best. But, for hour after grueling hour on television we saw that hoping does not hold back wind and water.
The two most remarkable storms of 2005 were Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma. That’s not to ignore or discount the effects of Dennis, Emily, Ophelia, Rita, Stan, Gamma, and the rest. In a normal hurricane season, any one of those storms would have been memorable. But Katrina and Wilma rose above the pack in this extraordinary season of storms.
An easy-to-forget aspect of the 2005 season was that none of the record-setting hurricanes formed in the deep tropics. Through history, most of the “great” hurricanes have formed well east of the Lesser Antilles. From there they have time to organize and gain strength. That the traditional breeding ground for big, powerful hurricanes was not fertile in 2005, and yet fifteen hurricanes formed, gives us pause.
Traditional thinking, before 2005, was that a hurricane season when the storms developed mostly on the western side of the Atlantic or in the Caribbean would likely not be as bad because, on average, they wouldn’t have as much time to develop. That’s still probably a good thought, except when the weather pattern is ideal and the water temperature is like a bath. Those factors came together in 2005.
Hurricane Katrina—Monday, August 29, 2005
Katrina was a hurricane catastrophe . . . in southern Mississippi. In Louisiana, it was a healthy hurricane hit . . . and a levee-design/engineering/debacle compounded by a FEMA fiasco . . . that led to human suffering on a scale that we have not seen in the United States in modern times. Everyone involved, from Washington to Louisiana, should be ashamed and embarrassed. We should all be disgusted with our government(s).
Katrina’s winds in New Orleans. There is little, if any, reason to think that most of New Orleans experienced more than a category 1 hurricane. For the city it was nowhere near a historic hurricane event. Here is the evidence:
• The only winds in New Orleans measured at over category 1 strength were on the far eastern side of the city. The highest was at the NASA Michoud Assembly plant fifteen miles east of downtown, where the winds were estimated to have gusted to 123 mph. The anemometer was about forty feet high. Another location nearby had a wind gust estimated at 120 mph, giving credence to the idea that these observations were probably accurate. Even using a conservative reduction factor of 20 percent to estimate the sustained winds (see page 85) occurring at the same time, we find that it’s unlikely that there were values higher than the low end of the category 2 range, if that. And remember, this is in the extreme eastern edge of the city, closest to the circulation center. All of the other measurements—although there weren’t many—were low-end category 1 or tropical storm force.
• An anemometer in the middle of Lake Pontchartrain that survived measured a peak sustained wind of 78 mph. While this may not have been the highest wind over the lake, it should be reasonably representative. And it’s low-end category 1.
• The water did not top the Lake Pontchartrain levee. Originally designed for a category 3 storm surge, the levee at its existing height would likely only withstand a category 2, according to research by a group at Louisiana State University. That levee, along with all of southern Louisiana, is sinking. So the evidence is that the storm surge rose to less than category 2 levels.
• The wind rating of the roof shingles on most of the houses in New Orleans was 60 mph. Most of the shingles stayed on.
For these reasons and more it is clear that Hurricane Katrina’s winds were not the cause of the New Orleans catastrophe.
Katrina’s storm surge in East New Orleans. New Orleans is subject to storm surges from two directions from a hurricane moving by to the east of the city. To understand what happened during Katrina, we have to look at them separately. To the east side of the city, a massive storm surge was generated by Katrina’s winds, which the day before had been 165 mph. That water was forced into the “corner” formed by the southeastern-Louisiana and southern-Mississippi coasts, and then up the Mississippi River–Gulf Outlet Canal (the MR-GO) toward the city. Under the pressure of this water, the levees on both sides of the canal failed, inundating New Orleans East and St. Bernard’s Parish. The high-speed water continued west into the Industrial Canal, where the levees also collapsed, putting the Lower Ninth Ward underwater. The MR-GO Canal had previously been identified as a threat to the eastern part of the city. As water funnels into a narrow canal, the power of the water is accentuated, an extremely bad design in a storm-surge-prone area.
Many areas on the eastern side of New Orleans would have flooded even if the levees had not failed. There is a debate about whether the flooding would have been as bad—it would probably not have been—but it would have been devastating and deadly in any case. It has been well-known for years that this is the most vulnerable part of the city from a storm on Katrina’s track. Unless a change is made in the design of the MR-GO Canal, which aims water from the Gulf at the heart of the city, or the channel is closed, the Katrina tragedy in eastern New Orleans will be repeated.
Katrina’s storm surge from Lake Pontchartrain. Late in the morning of August 29, Katrina was moving ashore in southern Mississippi. At that time, the northerly winds on the left side of the circulation were pushing the lake water toward New Orleans, into the north-opening drainage canals, and deep into the city. The walls collapsed, with devastating results for the low-lying, northern part of the city.
The flooding should not have happened. We now know that the floodwalls failed because of faulty design and construction by the Army Corp of Engineers. As noted above, the winds pushing the water were likely in the category 1 range. The water pressure appears to have been well below the levees’ advertised specifications.
The whole thing just looks like a bad idea. These north-south canals—like the MR-GO Canal to the east—allow the powerful storm surge deep into the city. Strong floodgates should have been put at the entrance to the canals so the floodwalls wouldn’t be subject to the extreme pressures. A version of that idea is under way now as a temporary fix.
In addition, big pumps take water out of the city and push it into these canals and toward the lake—against a storm surge driven by a north wind. How could this ever work? The pumps should dump the water directly into the lake, so the pumped water is not trying to flow against the water pushed by the wind.
Amazingly, the potential of a wall failure on these north-south canals was never brought up in any seminar or conference I ever attended at which the New Orleans hurricane problem was discussed. Far more explanation...
