Hurricane Coming for New England
« on: August 20, 2021, 1017 UTC »
Hey All.

Interesting storm.

I expect gust 75 here (??).Floods?

Tonight I put together 2000 uH giant cotton basket weave onto the big var caps for LW / VLF storm work.

Also may break out the really big # 28 oat coil as well.

We went into Hurricane Watch zone right off the bat this morning.  We are the furthest inland in Connecticut they have issued a watch area, 15 miles off coast.  Forecast had gotten more dire for my qth in ensuing days as storm landfall keeps drifting west. From a predicted path of just east of Cape Cod to landfall on CT/RI border, about 60 miles east of me.  Any closer and we would see both the worst of the rain and wind.  Plus, there is an astronomically usual high tide this weekend in New England.  In addition, it is thought this will be a lingering storm.

This would be the first landfalling hurricane in New England in almost exactly 30 years.  Much shoreline construction has occurred in the past generation.  I can only imagine what it will be like to try to get people off Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Block Island, and Nantucket (the latter three only by boat/plane) during a summer weekend.

I can envision major flooding in Cape Cod Bay as counter clockwise winds drive water south into the Bay during an abnormally high tide.  It will fill/overfill the Bay like running water in a bath tub.

Hey Yankee,

Not too bad , thank God.So far just some rains and a bit of wind.

I am going to Island in Buzzard’ s Bay on Sept 1. I think things will be ok.

Currently I am grabbing  occasional lightning strikes in a feeder band around 125 mi to the East.
