Hurricanes & Tornados
A Stormchaser TruckThe best way to survive a tornado or hurricane is to be forewarned of its approach. 
Stormchasing teams like Vortex2  (picture at left) are studying tornadoes to help us build better early warning systems.
If tornadoes or hurricanes are a threat where you live or maybe to where you are going consider the links and videos below.
Tornado Early Warning
Sign up for severe weather text alerts and know your tornado terms.
1. Turn on your NOAA radio or NOAA Radio Online (NOAA Radio en español) and listen to regularly updated severe weather reports. In some states NOAA radios have been mandated to be installed in mobile homes.
2. Monitor your local news station or the Weather Channel or sign up with your local news outlet to receive text alerts. Follow them on Twitter for current information.
3. Watch the skies, listen for sirens or emergency vehicles in your neighborhood.
4. Be a good neighbor and warn those around you.
5. Watch the Weather Channel to check the TOR:CON (tornado condition); a forecast that gives the probability of tornadic activity in a specific area.
...most important of all, heed the warning, take precautions and learn what to do!
If You are Caught in a Tornado
National Geographic - Tornadoes 101
Hurricane Early Warning
The first warning we usually receive is when they announce the official start to Hurricane season (June 1 to November 1).
Because a hurricane doesn't drop out of the sky like a tornado we can track its progress and prepare.
1. Log onto NOAA's National Hurricane Center to view tropical storm activity in the Atlantic & Eastern Pacific Oceans (tropical storms have the potential to become hurricanes).
2. Monitor your local news station, NOAA radio or NOAA Radio Online 
3. Begin to make your property "hurricane ready" to mitigate the effects of the high wind and prevent debris from your property damaging or causing injury to other properties or persons.
..... heed the warning and get ready to evacuate!
Hurricanes carry with it a host of other hazards such as Storm Surge, High Winds & Tornadoes and Inland Flooding. While winds and storm surge cause damage inland flooding is responsible for the majority of deaths. How NASA's Satellites and NOAA's researchers Work Together

Distracted Driving/Operating
Driving Distractions
Distractions to Driving
Distracted driving applies to anything that takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, or interrupts your concentration while driving.
Distracted driving or operating
(as in the case of trains, planes and boats)  affects our focus-safely
maneuvering a 2,500 lb vehicle moving at 103 ft. per second (70mph) through traffic.
 As we have seen recently on the news its not only drivers that are distracted but airline pilots, ferry captains and train engineers. Everything and everyone is fighting for and capturing our attention.
Fact Driven
 - On average, 1.6million crashes a year (185 per hour/3 per minute) are caused by driver distraction due to cell phone use.
 - In 2008, nearly 6,000 people died in crashes that involved distracted driving.  
 - The age group with the greatest proportion of distracted drivers was the under-20 age group-16 percent of all under-20 drivers in fatal crashes were reported to have been distracted while driving.

SHAKINBAKINCatchin' Waves SoCal Style
Seismic, Tsunami and Radiant Heat Waves
   The Waves of SoCal
Catchin' a wave takes on a whole new meaning if you live in Southern California (SoCal). Sure, surfers catch ocean waves but there are other gnarly un-rideables out there.
Seismic waves are waves of energy that travel through the earth and we feel them in the form of an earthquake. Since Sunday March 28th when a M7.2 earthquake centered along the Laguna Salada fault line struck Mexicali in Baja Mexico the San Diego/Imperial County regions have experienced over 1,000 aftershocks and experts agree that we may feel them for months or years to come. Are all of these aftershocks indicative of a larger earthquake? No one can really say but what is being said is be prepared because another earthquake is coming whether along this fault line or some other one.
Riding the Seismic Wave
So what do you do during an earthquake? Run out of the building? Run to another room or stand in a doorway? No, No and No. Drop, Cover, Hold On and ride the seismic wave!
Earthquake shaking can move you back and forth by 6ft per second-standing up or walking is impossible and not advised due to other events that are occurring i.e. falling debris.

Up-to-Date Earthquake and Tsunami Warnings

       *USGS - *USGS_EQ_CA - *USGS_EQ_SoCal - *EQTW 
tsunamiwaves Tsunami Waves 
This is a wave that you want to run from!
Tsunami waves are caused by earthquakes below or near the ocean floor, underwater volcanic eruptions or landslides. These events cause a displacement of the earth that in turn causes energy to flow out like ripples in a pond.
So...Can I Ride This Wave?
No Way! Tsunami waves typically do not curl or break. As they reach shallow waters they slow down and the energy forms the water into a wall that is 30ft or higher. 
How fast? Up to 500MPH in deep ocean.
How powerful? Mostly everything in its path, boats, trains and homes are carried thousands of feet inland.
And there's more....literally, there are usually multiple waves and the first one may not be the largest.
If I can't Ride It what should I do?
Go to higher ground? If you cannot quickly move to higher ground go the upper floors of a reinforced concrete building and wait until you hear the official "All Clear"-the Tsunami has passed.
If you hear the warning and have the time then move inland to higher ground and stay there until you hear the official "All Clear"!
Did you know? Imperial Beach of San Diego County is an Inundation Zone and has been certified by NOAA as a Tsunami Ready City - this means that they are ready in case a Tsunami warning is issued and one strikes the area!

HEATRadiant Heat Waves
We are warmed by the campfire because of the radiant heat waves it emits. These heat waves travel out laterally from a fire and if the fire is big enough it will cause a home's exterior to heat up to the point of ignition even if flames have not touched the structure (see the picture above).

Respect the Radiant Heat Wave
To prevent radiant heat from affecting your house you need to keep the RH wave far from your property and you can do that by creating 100ft of defensible space. This space is not devoid of landscaping it is devoid of material that the RH wave  preheats before the flames arrive.
100 Feet of Defensible space will save you, your property and the emergency responders sent to help you.
Respect the wave!

Swim Safety for Everyone
Swim Safety
There is nothing like spending time at the beach or enjoying a cool ride on a pleasure craft. The pool becomes an oasis that many flock to when the city's "Heat Islands" become to much to bear.
Water safety needs to be practiced if we are to avoid marring these enjoyable and refreshing events with a tragedy.
Anyone Can Learn to Swim!
Children as young a two months, those with learning impairments and adults can take swimming lessons too. Swim lessons are a safety investment that will pay off dividends for a lifetime. 
Keep in mind.
That there is no better time.
Than the present.
When it comes to learning about, teaching and practicing water safety.

Keeping Your Cool in Summer's HeatKEEPINGCOOL
Heat Islands - Cool Zones - Power Outages
Look for the Cool Zone Sign
Cool Zone
Heat is the number one weather-related killer in the United States.
As this newsletter was being published (7/6/10) the Northeast region of the U.S was experiencing severe extreme heat.
Boston, MA -  100F (WBZ 1030am)
Worcester, MA -  96F (T&G Newspaper)
New York City - 103F Central Park (1010 WINS)
Philedelphia - 102F (CBS 3-TV
 Heat Island Effect
The term "heat island" describes built up areas that are hotter than nearby rural areas due to:
1.  Waste heat from city buildings, cars and trains.
2. Thermal properties of buildings add heat to the air by conduction. 
     Tar, ashphalt, brick and concrete are great conductors of heat.
3. The canyon structure that tall buildings create enhance warming.
At night, cities do not cool off as fast as the rural areas because roads,
buildings and other structures retain heat. Temperture differences during the day range from 2-10F warmer and as much as a 22F difference in the evening.
During hot weather you will need to increase your fluid intake, regardless of your activity level. Don't wait until you are thirsty to drink (thirst is a poor indicator of your body's hydration level if you're thirsty you are already dehydrated).
Don't drink liquids that contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar-these actually cause you to lose more body fluid.
Do drink a sports beverage that can replace the salt and minerals lost during sweating.
Caution: Consult with your doctor if you are limited as to the amount of fluid you can drink, you take water pills or you are on a low -salt diet.
Slow Down for the Cool Zone
Cool Zones are air conditioned buildings that are open to the public and provide an escape from the summer heat.
*No air conditioning or suitable method to cool off? Go to a cool zone!
*Hot in the summer heat and need a moment out of the sun to rest before you
  finish errands? Go to a cool zone!
Other "Cool" Programs
Check with your local utility company or County agency and they can provide you with information about programs to assist you to keep cool this summer!
San Diego County and SDG&E - A Cool Partnership
SDG&E is working with San Diego County's Aging and Independent Services to provide seniors, limited income persons and those with a special need cool options this summer.
Cool Zone sites are open from June 24 until October 29.
Save energy, transportation available and a free portable offerings for those who qualify.
Be Prepared for Power Outages
Extreme heat not only adds stress to our body but also to the region's power grid.
The hotter it gets -> the cooler people want to be -> additional cooling appliances are used for longer periods -> power consumption is increased = the power grid copes with this by rolling brown outs or a complete black out if it is unable to answer the consumer's power demand.
Cash in Pocket = Merchandise in Hand
ATM's and other money dispensing machines will not work if there is a blackout. Have some cash and change with you. Although the cash registers may not work supermarkets and other retailers may stay open for the "Cash Only" customer.
This Lifeguarding training video will give you the information you need to identify and perform basic first aid until medical personnel arrive.
Remember if an emergency is suspected dial 9-1-1 immediately to activate the EMS system while you treat the person.

Mosquitoes carry the West Nile Virus
Mosquitoes Carry West Nile Virus
What does rain and foreclosed homes have in common? Mosquitoes love them both.
Abandoned foreclosed homes, neglected landscaping and standing water the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
West Nile Virus (WNV)
Mosquitoes get the disease from feeding on infected birds and then pass it on to humans, horses and other animals.
About 80% of people infected with WNV experience no symptoms. The remaining 20% may have fevers, headaches, body aches, nausea, vomiting, swollen lymph glands or a skin rash on the chest, stomach and back. About one in 150 develop serious illness and less than 1% die from the disease.
WNV in the United States 
WNV was initially isolated to the New York City area in 1999, since then the disease has spread to 44 states and the District of Columbia. It can can also be found in all 58 counties in California. West Nile Virus is now the most prevalent mosquito-borne disease in the U.S.
How Can You Fight the Bite?
Mosquitoes breed in standing water sources, such as neglected pools, plant saucers, spare tires, birdbaths and decorative ponds. Draining the water from these sources will stop the mosquito from breeding and in turn stop them from biting you.
When you are outdoors, especially at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active wear long-sleeved, light colored shirts and long pants. Insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, and lemon of eucalyptus oil work best.

I remember picking them off after playing in the fields of Worcester County Massachusetts. Ticks are always "questing" looking for a host and once they have found one they are difficult to remove because they dig in with a barbed snout. In any case, Ticks carry diseases such as Lyme Disease and Tularemia.
While you are on your quest.
If you are hiking or walking in an area where ticks are commonly found:
1. Stay on marked wide trails
2. Walk in the center to avoid the grass or bushy areas
3. Wear long light colored clothing if you can
4. Tuck your pants into your shoes
5. Wear repellent that contains DEET
6. Check yourself for ticks during and after your hike
7. Happy Trails!

AFRICANIZEDBEESAfricanized Honey Bees (AHB) "Killer Bees"
The recent death of an Encinitas man clearing his property of brush and a local account of a friend requiring medical attention has prompted many to use extra caution when working in the backcountry, property or fields.
AHB are established in parts of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California. All of San Diego County has been colonized by the AHB so you may encounter these aggressive honey bees anywhere you go. Learning about these bees and taking certain precautions can lower the risk of being injured.
The Africanized Honey Bee is closely related to the European honey bee used in agriculture for crop pollination and honey production.
Common AHB Nesting Sites
Empty boxes, cans, buckets or other containers; old tires, infrequently used vehicles; lumber piles; holes and cavities in fences, trees or the ground; sheds, garages and other outbuildings; and low decks or spaces under buildings.
AHB Characteristics
1. More defensive than European honey bees
2. Respond quickly and in large numbers
3. Can sense a threat from people at 50FT and power equipment at 100FT
4. Will pursue an enemy a 1/4 mile or more
General Precautions
1. Examine work area before using lawn mowers, weed cutters and other  
    power equipment. While you are inspecing listen for buzzing indicating a
    nest or swarm
2. Be alert when participating in all outdoor activities
3. Check with your doctor about bee sting kits and procedures if you are
    sensitive to bee stings
If you encounter AHB
1. Evacuate area immediately
2. While running away try to protect face and eyes
3. Take shelter in a car or building. Water or thick brush does not offer much
4. Resistance is futile - Do not stand or swat. Rapid motions will cause them to
If Stung - Seek medical attention IMMEDIATELY if breathing is difficult, stung multiple times or allergic to bee stings.
*Activate 9-1-1 immediately if breathing is difficult or other serious symptoms occur.
1. Go quickly to a safe area.
2. Remove stinger as soon as possible.
3. Don't squeeze stinger;pressure will release more venom.
4. Wash sting area with soap and water.
5. Apply ice pack to relieve pain and swelling
