January Severe Winter Weather

Polar Vortex: a high altitude low-pressure system that hovers over the Arctic in winter. In early January, the polar vortex weakened and broke down, allowing fragments of air to slosh out of the bowl into mid-latitudes. The high pressure building up in the Arctic slowed down the jet stream, which caused it to buckle into deep folds and flow farther south than usual, introducing cold Arctic air into the central and eastern U.S. (Source - NOAA)




west virginia chemical spill
West Virginia Chemical Spill
  • The Elk River chemical spill occurred on January 9, 2014 when crude 4-Methylcyclohexanemethanol (MCHM) was released from a Freedom Industries facility into the Elk River, a tributary of the Kanawha River, in Charleston in the U.S. state of West Virginia.
  • The chemical spill occurred upstream from the principal West Virginia American Water intake and treatment and distribution center.
  • Following the spill, up to 300,000 residents within nine counties in the Charleston, West Virginia metropolitan area were without access to potable water.
