ORLANDO, Florida. – Hurricane Ian slammed into western Cuba as a major hurricane on Tuesday and left 1 million people without power, then followed a collision course with Florida over warm Gulf waters and turned into a catastrophic disaster Category 4 storm.

By early Wednesday, Ian had transitioned to near Category 5 status west-southwest of Naples, Fla., and was moving north-northeast at nearly 10 mph. Ian’s maximum sustained winds are near 155 mph, with higher gusts.

Ian made landfall in Cuba’s Pinar del Rio province, where authorities set up 55 shelters, evacuated 50,000 people, dispatched emergency personnel and took action to protect crops in the country’s main tobacco-growing region. The US National Hurricane Center said Cuba experienced “significant wind and storm surge impacts” when the hurricane struck with sustained winds of 125 mph (205 km/h).

Ian was expected to get even stronger over the course of the warm gulf of mexicoreaching peak winds of 130 mph (209 km/h) as it approached the southwest coast of Florida, where millions have been ordered to evacuate.

Tropical storm-force winds were expected across the Southern Peninsula on Tuesday evening, reaching hurricane force on Wednesday – when the eye of the hurricane was expected to make landfall. With tropical storm-force winds extending 140 miles (185 kilometers) from the center of Ian, damage was expected across a wide area of ​​Florida.

It was not yet known exactly where Ian would crash to earth. Current models show the storm making landfall south of Tampa Bay, possibly as far south of Port Charlotte.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis urged people to prepare for extended power outages and to move away from the storm’s potential path.

“It’s a big storm, it’s going to kick up a lot of water when it comes in,” DeSantis told a news conference in Sarasota, a coastal city of 57,000 that could be affected. “And you’re going to end up with really big storm surge and you’re going to end up with really big flood events. And that’s the kind of storm surge that’s life threatening.

Hundreds of residents were being evacuated from several Tampa-area nursing homes, where hospitals were also moving some patients. Airports in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando and Key West have closed. Walt Disney World and Universal closed their Orlando theme parks Wednesday and Thursday, as did SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

Nasa rode his moon rocket from the launch pad to its Kennedy Space Center hangar, adding weeks of delay to the test flight.

Forecasters said the rise in ocean waters could reach 10 feet (3 meters) if it peaks at high tide. Rainfall near the landing area could exceed 16 inches (41 centimeters).

“It’s a freak and then there’s the confusion of the path,” said Renee Correa, who headed to Orlando from the Tampa area with her daughter and Chihuahua. “Tampa was lucky for 100 years, but it’s a little scary now.”

Kelly Johnson was preparing to hide out at her home two blocks from the beach in Dunedin, west of Tampa. She said she would escape to the second floor if the seawater surged inland and that she had a generator ready in case she lost power.

“I’m a Floridian, and we know how to deal with hurricanes,” Johnson said. “It’s part of living in paradise – knowing that every now and then those storms come your way.”

Forecasters have warned that the hurricane will be felt over a wide area as it crosses Florida with an expected northward turn. Flash flooding was possible across the state, and parts of Florida’s east coast faced a potential storm surge threat as Ian’s bands approached the Atlantic Ocean. Parts of Georgia and South Carolina could also see torrential rains this weekend.

As the center of the storm moved into the Gulf, scenes of destruction emerged in Cuba’s famous tobacco belt. The owner of leading cigar producer Finca Robaina posted photos on social media of broken wooden and thatched roofs on the ground, greenhouses in rubble and overturned wagons.

“It was apocalyptic, a real disaster,” wrote Hirochi Robaina, grandson of the operation’s founder.

An Apopka family prepares for the storm that is expected to hit central Florida. They fear that their property will be consumed by water following heavy rains.

State media released photos showing flowing water in the town of San Juan y Martinez. The western provinces of Pinar del Rio and Artemisa were completely without electricity.

Local government station TelePinar reported heavy damage to the main hospital in the town of Pinar del Rio, tweeting photos of collapsed ceilings, toppled trees and debris thrown onto its property. No deaths have been reported.

At the White House, President Joe Biden said his administration was sending hundreds of Federal Emergency Management Agency workers to Florida and seeking to assure mayors in the storm’s path that Washington would meet their needs. He urged residents to comply with orders from local authorities.

“Your safety is more important than anything,” he said.

Hurricane season extends through November.

ORLANDO, Florida. – Tropical Storm Ian continues to move through the Caribbean and is expected to develop into a hurricane by early Monday.

As of Sunday’s 11pm update, Ian had maximum sustained wind speeds of 65mph gusting up to 75mph with a drop in pressure ripe for rapid intensification on Monday.

The current track has it approaching western Cuba as a Category 2 or 3 and intensifying into a Category 4 as it crosses the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday morning.

The government of Cuba upgraded the hurricane watch to a hurricane warning for the Cuban provinces of Isla de Juventud, Pinar del Rio and Artemisa, and upgraded the tropical storm watch to a tropical storm warning for the Cuban provinces of La Habana, Mayabeque and Matanzas.

The Cayman Islands government has issued a tropical storm watch for Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.

Tropical storm force winds extend up to 60 miles from the center.

Central Florida residents are preparing for any possibility of a storm that could hit Florida in the coming days.

A northwesterly turn is expected Sunday evening, followed by a north-northwestward movement on Monday and a northward movement on Tuesday with a slightly slower forward speed.

On the forecast track, Ian’s center is expected to pass well southwest of Jamaica Sunday evening, and pass near or west of the Cayman Islands early Monday. Ian will then move near or over western Cuba Monday evening and early Tuesday and emerge over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday.

[RELATED: Here’s what it means to be in the forecast cone]

Ian is expected to become a hurricane early Monday and reach major hurricane strength late Monday or early Tuesday before reaching western Cuba.

The current five-day cone forecast indicates the storm will affect Florida as a major hurricane next week, but the track is expected to continue to change over the next few days.

Ian should produce the following precipitation:

  • Jamaica and Cayman Islands: 3 to 6 inches, with local highs up to 8 inches.

  • West Cuba: 4 to 8 inches, with local highs up to 12 inches.

  • Florida Keys to southern and western Florida Peninsula: 2 to 4 inches, with local highs up to 6 inches through Wednesday morning.

  • Heavy rain could affect North Florida, the Florida panhandle and the southeastern United States Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Central Floridians hit grocery stores to prepare for a possible hurricane.

The following named storm will be called Julia.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Hermine officially became a post-tropical remnant depression.

At 5 a.m. Sunday, Hermine was 580 miles north-northeast of the Cape Verde Islands. The storm had maximum sustained wind speeds of 30 mph and was moving north at 7 mph. Hermine is expected to make a slow northwesterly turn early Monday and a west-northwesterly turn Monday evening.

Elsewhere, officially Hurricane Fiona is now a post-tropical storm that brought hurricane-force winds to Canada. As of 5 p.m. Saturday, hurricane and tropical storm warnings issued by the Canadian Hurricane Center for Fiona in Atlantic Canada had been discontinued as the cyclone – located 80 miles northwest of Port Aux Basques Newfoundland – is heading northeast at 8 mph. Tropical storm-force winds extend up to 550 miles from the center of Fiona, although a gradual weakening is expected over the next two days.

Hurricane season extends through November.

Trying to find a cheap new car in a year when sticker prices are at an all time high is the economic equivalent of trying to parallel park on a crowded city street during rush hour. Yes, it’s a serious challenge — but not impossible.

Find out: This credit score mistake could cost Americans millions

You can still find at least three new models under $20,000, Fox News reported. That’s less than half the average new-car price of $46,259 in August, according to JD Power estimates.

As prices continue to skyrocket, the list of affordable cars continues to shrink. As noted by Fox News, the cheapest new car in the United States – the $14,595 Chevrolet Spark – has been discontinued for the 2023 model year. The same goes for the $17,740 Hyundai Accent. .

However, there are still three choices if you want to find a new car for under $20,000.

With the Chevy Spark set to be discontinued, the cheapest new car price heading into 2023 is the Nissan Versa sedan. It is priced at $16,675 for 2022 and is expected to return in 2023. However, you will need to invest more money to get certain features. For example, if you want Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you’ll need to upgrade to the $19,485 SV trim.

The 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage, which starts at $17,290 in 2022, ranks just behind the Versa for affordability, though that price is expected to rise next year as the model switches to an automatic transmission.

You won’t get much “vroom” with the Mirage, though. Its 76 horsepower three-cylinder engine makes it the least powerful car in the United States. But it gets good gas mileage at 39 mpg and comes with an AM/FM radio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.

Take our survey: How do you typically split the restaurant bill?

The third new car under $20,000 is the Kia Rio. It sells for $17,545 in 2022, though Kia hasn’t confirmed the Rio will return next year. The car features a 120hp four-cylinder engine, automatic transmission and a wirelessly connected version of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is also a five-door hatchback called the Rio 5 with a price starting at $18,485.

They might not be the most attractive options on the new car market, but for many the price is probably right.

Extended car warranty company Warrantywise’s 2022 Reliability Index has revealed that the most reliable used car in the UK is the Honda Jazz.

Looking at the manufacturer’s cars less than ten years old and out of warranty to provide a cross-section, the Warrantywise Reliability Index sees the Jazz top a list populated mostly by Japanese and Korean models, with only one European car making the Top Ten.

The rankings were created taking into account the frequency of warranty claims as well as the highest repair cost incurred in any of these claims. Honda’s score of 93.7 out of 100, with its highest recorded warranty claim of £973.66, was enough to put it ahead of the likes of the Mazda2 and Toyota Auris in second and third place, respectively.

Although a worthy accolade, the Jazz marks Honda’s only appearance in the top ten, with Mazda, Toyota and Kia taking two spots each.

Smaller cars and superminis are particularly well represented on the list, implying that their relative simplicity and lower repair cost make them more reliable and cheaper to maintain than larger, more luxurious cars.

Only two cars larger than city cars, the Toyota Auris and Kia Ceed (third and sixth place, respectively), make the list.

Review of the 2018 Mazda MX-5

That said, one sports car, the Mazda MX-5, takes a very respectable fourth place, ahead of more mundane cars like the Toyota Aygo, Kia Rio and Suzuki Alto. With prices for new models starting at under £26,000, the MX-5 could hardly be described as an expensive luxury car.

The Peugeot 107 completes the list with a score of 81.6.

Warrantywise’s list of the ten most reliable used cars stands in stark contrast to the company’s list of least reliable used cars, which mostly includes expensive luxury models that fail to stand out due to their complexity and high cost of repairs.

In a dismal showing for Land Rover, the Range Rover is, according to the Warrantywise Index, the UK’s least reliable used car with a shocking score of just 20.2 out of 100 due to the frequency of warranty claims and the highest recorded repair bill. of £23,890. Another Land Rover product, the Range Rover Sport, ranked third on the list with 23.1 out of 100, although BMW and Porsche also made several appearances with cars such as the BMW M3, M5, X6, Porsche Panamera and Cayenne, all proving to be extremely unreliable and expensive to repair.

Other reliability indices such as What Car? also show that Land Rover is the least reliable automaker with models such as the Land Rover Discovery Sport, Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery all getting the lowest reliability scores in their respective categories.

Best Eco-Friendly Hybrid SUVs: 2018 Lexus RX450h Hybrid

The latest What Car? index also named the 2008-2015 Honda Jazz as its most reliable car in first place alongside the Lexus RX and Toyota RAV4.

“It’s no surprise to see Honda at the top of the charts, given the reliability of its cars which has been proven time and time again, with our Reliability Index results,” said Lawrence Whittaker, CEO of Warrantywise. .

“The Reliability Index is a great tool for us as it allows us to assess the market and help our customers make the right choice for them when deciding which car to buy; especially now that the cost of parts and labor is on the rise and people are genuinely looking for the best options to meet their needs. »

The company added a caveat to its results saying they were collected over the course of 2021 and 2022, but since this sample was selected the company has seen a significant increase in labor costs. labor and parts due to inflation and supply. pressures in industries globally.

“But why couldn’t she vote, Mom?” Why not?”

We’re looking at a statue of suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, and the question comes from my four-year-old daughter.

They learned to vote in kindergarten, and Maya has been to the polls with her dad and me many times, so she understands the basics. What she fails to understand, however, is the idea that women are excluded from the democratic process.

In one respect, it’s wonderful. The huge progress we’ve made over the last century means she already has the confidence to believe she can be anything she wants.

But, I’m also immediately struck by a strong sense of duty to ensure that she doesn’t take the sacrifices of those who came before her for granted, that she recognizes her responsibility to carry the torch for those who come next. , and that she isn’t happy with the hills yet to be climbed, both here in the UK and around the world.

We discuss this a little further. Like me, she is extremely curious and won’t leave the subject aside until she understands it.

The story is ugly. A blurb next to the sculpture reveals that Davison was force-fed 49 times during hunger strikes then, in 1913, he died after a collision with King George V’s horse, Anmer, at the Epsom Derby. Some say she was trying to pin the suffragette colors on the animal, others that she deliberately got in her way.

I hesitate before reading it aloud, fearing it’s too much information for such a young mind, but I keep going, because sometimes things are too important to sanitize.

Success inspires young people to believe in themselves

The plaque also features photos of people lining the streets for Davison’s funeral, prompting other “whys?”. I tell Maya it’s because she had the courage to challenge the status quo and inspired others to do the same.

She was a role model, I say, although, unfortunately, she was initially judged harshly for her actions. Indeed, the telegram from Buckingham Palace to injured jockey Herbert Jones referred to the “abominable conduct of a brutal madwoman”.

We’ve heard a lot about female role models recently, after the Lionesses won over Germany in the Euro 2022 soccer final. Great too.

How brilliant that this group of players delivered when it mattered, in some cases in the face of repeated online gender abuse. And – despite questions about the lack of diversity in the England squad – their success will no doubt inspire many youngsters to believe they too can achieve the highest level.

Another example that comes quickly to mind is Jamaican sprint legend Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who became the first person to win five world titles in an individual running event when she won gold in the 100 m at the World Championships in Athletics last month. Still in the shadow of Usain Bolt’s fame, at 35, she is now the oldest world champion in an individual track event.

I grapple daily with the insidious thought that my time in the sun is over, that I won’t be able to achieve the way I did before.

Oh, and did I mention she’s a mother? Her son was born in 2017 and two years later she became the first mum in 24 years to win a world 100m title.

Likewise, Lady of Great Britain Jessica Ennis Hill won her third world heptathlon title in 2015 after giving birth to her first child the previous year. She then finished second at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Models are for all ages

At my current stage in life, as I begin to reflect on what working mom Lindsay might look like, I find the exploits of these last two women particularly impressive. Because with hard work and a commitment to regaining both their physical prowess and their emotional strength, they were able to regain their dominance after having children.

I realize from personal experience that it is very easy to lose confidence after becoming a parent, to constantly question yourself, especially if you choose – like me – to take a break from your career.

I grapple daily with the insidious thought that my time in the sun is over, that I won’t be able to achieve the way I used to – a clearly ridiculous notion when, deep down inside, I know I can, and when I have more years of work ahead of me than I have done so far.

So having role models like these women (as well as my mom, other women in the family and friends) to look up to really helps. In fact, it’s as vital to me as ever, if not more so.

We tend to use the term ‘role model’ in relation to children and young people, which obviously makes sense as they are just starting out, with their whole lives stretching out ahead of them. However, the mandate must be broader than that.

Let’s remember that – although the support we may need at different times in our lives will change – we must not and should never stop relying on others to guide us as we grow and age.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Thefts of two brands of passenger cars are on the rise in Memphis. Kia models newer than 2011 and Hyundai cars newer than 2015 are the main targets.

Experts say these are the easiest cars to steal, but there are ways to deter thieves.

“How could anyone take someone’s property that they work so hard for?” said Tyler Stitt.

Stitt said he came home from work last month and woke up the next day with his Kia Optima gone.

“When I went to the car pound, they have several Kias there. They even brought a Kia there while my wife and I were there that still worked. They had given up,” Stitt said.

He is not alone. Memphis police say there has been a recent increase in thefts at Kia and Hyundai, particularly key starter models.

The thieves disassemble the steering column and neutralize the ignition system by force.

FOX13 found a demo video on YouTube.

“What they do with these Hyundais and Kias is they take off your steering column, put a phone charger in there, and it replaces the chip in the key. And look at that,” the man said. in the video. “It gave me the ACC. And look at this; fire in the hole.”

The trend gained popularity nationwide after videos on social media sites like TikTok showed how easy it is to wire cars.

“The steering column is just torn. They urinated on the back seat. On the driver’s side, both tires are torn because they drove on them until they cracked the wheel,” Alena said. Clark at FOX13.

Clark’s Kia Forte was stolen from his apartment complex in Cordoba.

“We’re looking at right now, not even including bodily harm, five thousand dollars,” Clark said.

And to make matters worse, Clark says the suspects committed other crimes using his car.

“They armed a guy, stole his wallet, then took money out of his bank account. Then I used that money to post bail,” Clark said.

Retired Shelby County Sheriff’s Office Captain Benni Cobb said to buy a steering wheel lock to discourage thieves.

“You get the steering wheel lock, put it on the steering column, and it would keep your column from being broken and taken,” Cobb said.

You can also put a tracking device in your car.

“You can get your GPS tracking system. Of course, this is after the fact. Motion sensor in your vehicle to warn if someone gets into your car,” Cobb said.

If you see anyone committing crimes on TikTok or any social media app, Memphis police ask you to report them to Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.

Former WWE manager Dutch Mantell recently spoke about Max Dupri’s maximum male role models and compared them to Goldust.

Dupri stepped out into the ring last night on SmackDown to introduce Maximum Male Models’ newest clients – ma.cé and mån.sôör. The two models walked up the ramp and posed for photos. They will showcase their tennis apparel collection next week on SmackDown.

Speaking on the latest edition of Sportskeeda Wrestling Smack Talk, Mantell mentioned that the superstars had to commit to their gimmick. He recalled how much Goldust hated his character when he first came up with the idea. The wrestling veteran explained how Dustin decided to develop the character and worked hard to end the fans.

“Let’s get back to Goldust,” Mantell said. “He hated that stuff when he first got it. He told me. He said, ‘I hated that. He said, “F*** it. I’m gonna do this thing.” And he committed to it, and then it ended. But he was the type of guy, wrestler or worker who knew what to do and how to get out of it and he did it. But you have to commit to it. (From 11:35 a.m. to 12:05 p.m.)

It was an eventful homecoming episode of WWE SmackDown

The crowd at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona were treated to an action-packed episode of WWE SmackDown. The show started off with a good old fashioned battle royale between several superstars from RAW and SmackDown.

Happy Corbin stole the win after knocking out Drew McIntyre and Sheamus. Later in the show, the team of Alexa Bliss, Liv Morgan and Asuka defeated Raquel Rodriguez, Lacey Evans and Shotzi in tag team action. Madcap Moss also qualified for the Money in the Bank match after defeating Happy Corbin, Ezekiel and The Miz in a fatal four-way match.

The show set up the premium live event on Saturday with more compelling developments. It will be interesting to see if any titles change hands at Money in the Bank and which superstars come out of Las Vegas with the briefcase.

Models show Pipeline Fire ‘significantly’ increased flood risk in Flagstaff area | Local https://rioworld.org/models-show-pipeline-fire-significantly-increased-flood-risk-in-flagstaff-area-local/ Sun, 03 Jul 2022 13:00:00 +0000 https://rioworld.org/models-show-pipeline-fire-significantly-increased-flood-risk-in-flagstaff-area-local/ The 26,000-acre pipeline fire burned several watersheds in the San Francisco Peaks, increasing the threat of post-fire flooding for several neighborhoods downriver in the Flagstaff area.

The 26,000-acre pipeline fire burned several watersheds in the San Francisco Peaks, increasing the threat of post-fire flooding for several neighborhoods downriver in the Flagstaff area. Recently released flood models incorporate data from ground burn severity analyzes to predict flood patterns under severe storm conditions.

Models show that thousands of homes are likely to be affected.

With a ‘wetter than usual’ monsoon season predicted, residents are urged to take preventative measures to keep their homes safe as city and county officials race to implement mitigation flooding in affected areas.

The monsoons arrived about two weeks earlier than expected, said Brian Klimowski, lead meteorologist at the National Weather Service outpost in Flagstaff.

The U.S. Commerce Department’s rainfall forecast suggests a 33-40% chance of “above normal” seasonal rainfall between July and September. With above normal rainfall, an increased threat of flooding below the burn scars is expected.

Watersheds affected by pipeline fires drain into two distinct “zones”. The first—now called “Pipeline West”—encompasses the Chimney and Schultz Creek watersheds which drain into the Rio De Flag and eventually drain into downtown Flagstaff. The second, “Pipeline East”, encompasses the watersheds of Government Tank, Paintbrush-Siesta, Campbell, Copeland, Peaceful, Brandis, Lenox-Wupatki Trails – which drain into the neighborhoods of Timberline – Wupatki Trails, Fernwood and Doney Park.

West Pipeline

“The concerning aspect” of Pipeline West’s watersheds is their severity, said Joe Loverich, project manager for JE Fuller, the engineering firm that conducted the recent flood modeling.

“There are significant areas in Schultz Creek that were moderate or high [burn severity]Loverich said at a Flagstaff City Council meeting on Tuesday night. More severely burned soils easily repel water, correlating the severity of the soil burn and the risk of flooding.

Based on modeling by JE Fuller for Pipeline West, in the event that 2 inches of rain falls on the affected watersheds in 45 minutes, the water is expected to flow through Schultz Creek without impact until it meets highway 180 culverts near Flagstaff Fire Department Station No. 5. There it is expected to back up at culverts and flow onto Highway 180 in the Cheshire neighborhood near Stevanna Way, where it could flow to depths of 3 three inches.

From there, Loverich said the water would be inclined to take the “easiest route” to the Rio De Flag and through the streets of Cheshire at depths of around an inch, “covering the whole street”. .

The water is expected to cross Cheshire on its way to the Rio De Flag, backing out at Meade Lane and continuing south past Beal Road.

Unfortunately, there simply isn’t “enough infrastructure” to effectively transport increased flows to the Rio de Flag, Loverich said. He also pointed out that the uncertainty in the flood pattern increases as they proceed south into the Rio de Flag, as the Rio de Flag also absorbs water from several other sources.

“The Rio de Flag is a regional waterway,” Loverich said. “We’re not modeling rainfall across the entire 50 square mile watershed.”

The other caveat to modeling is that water can change its course.

“When that water comes out of the watershed, it’s not clear water,” Loverich said. “Debris, sediment, rocks going downhill can quickly alter the course of these streams. We try to predict the worst case scenario where this water would go.

For reasons of uncertainty, the models did not address flooding further into the Rio de Flag, in the downtown and south side areas. In these areas, common sense and historical knowledge will be key to preventative measures, said Samuel Beckett, director of public works for Flagstaff.

“People who have been here know where they get water,” Beckett said. “If you were out during Sunday’s storm and received water in the downtown area, you should probably consider sandbags at this point.”

Preventive measures in the Cheshire neighborhood should focus on the area where culverts on Highway 180 are expected to “become overwhelmed quickly,” Beckett said.

City public works officials are working to implement emergency mitigation measures in the area, including putting up concrete barriers at Stevanna Way, but supply issues could slow the process .

“Barriers, while ideal, are difficult to overcome,” Beckett said.

Area residents are urged to use sandbags, especially near areas that could allow flood waters under the house, such as doors, windows and basements. Self-filling sandbag stations have been installed at Thorpe Park and the “Y” of Schultz Pass Road and Mount Elden Lookout Road to serve area residents.

“Protect your homes,” Beckett said. “Make sure they are safe enough to shelter in place.”

In the event of flooding, residents are advised not to move, but to stay put.

“If you live in Cheshire and are unaffected by water, and we see water on Hwy 180, please stay home,” Beckett said. “Don’t add to the traffic burden on the road.”

East Pipeline

The severity of the burns in the Pipeline East watersheds has “significantly” increased the risk of flooding, said Lucinda Andreani, deputy county executive. She said predictions based on recent flood modeling are “a bit worse” than preliminary modeling suggested.

In a 2-inch, 45-minute rain event, water will descend from the Pipeline East watersheds and pass through the Timberline and Wupatki Trails neighborhoods before reaching Highway 89.

Since the neighborhoods immediately downstream of Pipeline East had varying levels of flood mitigation infrastructure in place after the Schultz flood, some locations are expected to be hit harder than others. The Lenox-Wupatki trails watershed is likely to be “extremely reactive” to precipitation, Andreani said.

This was seen on Sunday, when a protective sediment basin below the watershed filled with “4 inches of sediment” and water “submerged” the channels in the Wupatki Trails neighborhood.

According to Civiltec Engineering Principal Chris Duza, the channels at Wupatki Trails were designed to handle approximately 150 cubic feet of water per second (cfs).

“They saw 800 to 1,000 cfs on Sunday,” Duza said.

According to a public presentation given by the county on Wednesday, rain events of last Sunday’s magnitude are “not unlikely” and are expected to occur multiple times throughout the season.

Other risk areas are those where no mitigation measures exist, such as the Copeland and Peaceful washes. Flooding is also likely below the Government Reservoir watershed, which empties near Switchback Trail and Heppel Drive. This watershed has experienced high burn severity and has no pre-existing attenuation, making it doubly vulnerable.

Once the water passes through the Timberline neighborhoods and across the east side of Highway 89, it should flow heavily into the residential sections near Girls Ranch Road, Leisure Lane, Last Chance Road, Ponderosa Lane, Campbell Avenue and Treadway Trail before splitting. , hitting the Twin Berms east of Campbell and crossing Landfill Road.

Then the waters should converge on Doney Park, entering near Vista De Oro and Dianna Place to move south and eventually “pond” between Carmel Road and Yancey Lane.

Up to 1,500 properties are potentially impacted by these flood patterns, Andreani said.

Coconino County has already mobilized resources to add emergency mitigation measures in heavily impacted areas. This includes concrete barriers installed in “high-speed” areas at Wupatki Trails, Heppel, Paintbrush and a property on Doney Park. They also cleared canals throughout the area, repaired the end trenches of the Campbell and Wupatki trails that were impacted by the tunnel and pipeline fires, and placed concrete barriers between Landfill Road and Doney Park.

In the works is an expansion of the Twin Berms between Highway 89 and Landfill Road, as well as a longer-term expansion of food mitigation systems in the area. Long-term goals will come into play later, according to Andreani. For now, the focus remains on the emergency response needed for this monsoon season.

Affected residents are strongly encouraged to purchase flood insurance and build sandbag walls. Conservation Corps partners have produced 100,000 sandbags for residential use, and on Tuesday 60 inmates at Winslow Correctional Complex will be tasked with producing more sandbags for use in the area. According to the county’s presentation, more than 600,000 sandbags are still needed.
