General Information • Hurricanes are devastating powerhouses of wind, rain, and surf. • Wind gust can reach 200 mph. • Can bring 6 to 12 inches of rainfall. • Storm surge can lift the ocean 15-24 feet or more above main sea level, with additional wave action. • Tornadoes are likely. • Loss of power and communication abilities likely.
The ingredients for a hurricane include a pre-existing weather disturbance, warm tropical oceans, moisture, and relatively light winds aloft. A hurricane is a type of tropical cyclone, which is a generic term for a low pressure system that generally forms in the tropics. The cyclone is accompanied by thunderstorms and, in the Northern Hemisphere, a counterclockwise circulation of winds near the earth's surface. Formation of a Hurricane
The process by which a tropical cyclone forms and subsequently strengthens into a hurricane depends on at least three conditions shown in the figure below A pre-existing disturbance with thunderstorms. Warm (at least 80ºF) ocean temperatures to a depth of about 150 feet. Light upper level winds that do not change much in direction and speed throughout the depth of the atmosphere (low wind shear). Hurricane Formation
Hurricane Anatomy The main parts of a hurricane (shown below) are the rain bands on its outer edges, the eye, and the eyewall. Air spirals in toward the center in a counter-clockwise pattern, and out the top in the opposite direction. In the very center of the storm, air sinks, forming the cloud-free eye.
Continued Hurricane Information • Just as many factors contribute to the birth of a hurricane, there are many reasons why a hurricane begins to decay. Wind shear can tear the hurricane apart. Moving over cooler water or drier areas can lead to weakening as well. Landfall typically shuts off the hurricane's main moisture source, and the surface circulation can be reduced by friction when it passes over land.
Hurricane: Terminology • Tropical Storm Watch:An alert given when a tropical storm ( wind speeds of 39-73 mph) poses a threat to a specific area within 36 hours. • Tropical Storm Warning:An alert given when a tropical storm poses a threat to a specific coastal area within 24 hours. • Hurricane Watch:An announcement for specific coastal areas that hurricane conditions are possible within 36 hours. • Hurricane Warning:A warning that sustained winds of 74 mph or higher associated with a hurricane are expected in a specified coastal area within 24 hours or less.
Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale • The scale below categorizes storms based on sustained wind speeds. Cat storm Winds Surge (FT) Example Category 1: 74-95 MPH 4-5 Irene 1999 Category 2: 96-110 MPH 6-8 Floyd 1999 Category 3: 111-130 MPH 9-12 Alicia 1993 Category 4: 131-155 MPH 13-19 Hugo 1989 Category 5: Greater than155 MPH 19+ Andrew 1992 Surge Indicator Poles, located in each community indicate the maximum expected surge per category. Cat-1 red, Cat -2 orange, Cat-3 yellow, Cat-4 green, and Cat-5 purple.
Hurricane: Storms Surge • Storm surge is simply water that is pushed toward the shore by the force of the winds swirling around the storm. This advancing surge combines with the normal tides to create the hurricane storm tide. • In addition, wind driven waves are superimposed on the storm tide. This rise in water level can cause severe flooding in coastal areas, particularly when the storm tide coincides with the normal high tides. Because much of the Atlantic coastline is less than 10 feet above mean sea level, the danger from storm tides is tremendous. Waves may reach 20 feet. • The level of surge in a particular area is also determined by the slope of the continental shelf. A shallow slope such as the our area, allows a greater surge to inundate coastal communities., although large breaking waves can still present major problems.
Hurricane: Storm Surge • During Katrina, debris line was recorded at 12 ft. 5 miles inland.
Hurricane: Flooding Problems • Typically 6-12 inches of rainfall produced. • Drowning is the #1 cause of deaths related to hurricanes. • 59% of children killed by hurricanes drowned in freshwater flooding. • 23% of all victims drowned while trying to abandon their vehicles. • Will be a significant inland problem.
Hurricane: Tornadoes Most hurricanes produce tornadoes. They occur in thunderstorms embedded in the rain-bands. Weak Moderate Strong less 110 MPH 110-205 MPH 205 MPH+
Category 1 & 2(Minimal to moderate damage) • Possible outcomes • Wind damage • Substandard structures • Signs, trees, power lines • Significant damage • Pier • Marina & boats • Waterfront property • Flooding • Structural damage to homes and businesses • Barrier islands
Category 3, 4, & 5(Extensive/catastrophic damage) • Possible outcomes • Many complete building failures and marinas/boats destroyed. • Failure of communications (Telephone, cell phones, radios). • Extensive damage to city infrastructure (power, water, sewer). • Bridges destroyed. • Severe flooding. • Roadways covered with sand, washed out and not passable. • Potential loss of life. • Disruption of government services.
FRANCES: Landfall Sept 5th, Cat 2-105 MPH, north of Stuart in Martin County Claimed 15 lives $2.5 Billion US damages
Preparing Your Home • Ensure you have ample insurance/flood/mold. • Utilize shutters (metal or plywood) to protect against flying debris. • Secure all outside objects. • Unplug all electrical equipment. Store equipment elevated and covered with plastic. • Inventory property and photograph. • Use cautions with generators (CO and electrical issues.)
Boats Owners Preparation • For trailer able boats: - Take them with you if possible. - Secure all equipment and tarps. - Secure the boat if possible. • Boats at a marina: (Do not stay aboard…) - If possible move to a sheltered area (gunk hole) and secure with multiple anchors. - If left at the dock , strip all equipment and anything that might blow, secure with multiple lines and pad (fenders). - Leave room for the tidal variations 5-10 ft if not a floating dock.
