OK, let’s try this again . . . been out sick, as well as the holidays. Will try to be better about updates, given the whole 2 or three people who read this thing
On the major natural disaster front, although lots of smaller scale stuff going on. Hurricane Norbert is brushing the coast of Mexico, and its remnants may cause some flooding and problems later in the week. Couple of invest areas in the west Pacific, one in the Atlantic, a few small earthquakes here and there. I’m taking the opportunity to do some software upgrades and tests, which means something big is likely to happen any second now . . . you can keep up with the real time feed here.
With the organization changes and web site reorganization (yeah, still working on that) folks often get lost looking for old links. If you are looking for the analysis I led of the damage from ‘The Avengers’ or ‘Man of Steel’, those articles are here.
Network and computer upgrades are (hopefully!) complete, resuming the blog.
Am upgrading the software on the real time site as well as the blog – should be done Wednesday.
Just a reminder, our automated real time hazards tracking system is online at http://tracking.methaz.org, currently monitoring tropical cyclones (hurricanes), earthquakes, and volcanoes, as well as monitoring soil moisture conditions in key agricultural areas around the world. Currently we are tracking one tropical cyclone. There have been 14 earthquakes above magnitude 5, and 6 active volcano eruptions in the last five days.
After struggling off and on to migrate the old blog over to the new remote server, I’m finally just going to give up and start new posts rather than waste more time on it. (Yeah, I really shouldn’t have used the same contractor as the IRS for storing this stuff . . .)
