Hurricane Ida's Remnants


Recommended Posts

On one hand it is a bit disappointing that we missed the tornadoes and flooding around DC but we did have the overnight supercell which was at least something. We also do have to know that this was probably the best outcome for us where we missed out on what New York got, who knows maybe we are missing events now so we can get a storm this winter. Oh well at least it feels nice outside.

I hear ya buddy...my thoughts are kinda the same...disappointed to miss the extreme weather, yet thankful to avoid damage. But yet wanting to finally get in on a major event! It has been awhile...the severe outbreak a few weeks ago was the closest thing!!

The vids on social media out of NY City last night are incredible. Apparently 9 people have died in the NY/NJ area? Crazy stuff. Ida was one hell of a storm. 

When all is said and done it'll be one of the most impactful tropical remnant events in US history. The scale of the flooding and tornado damage is just extraordinary. Right over the megalopolis.

I grew up less than a mile from there. What you're seeing is the Schuylkill River on the right and the Manayunk Canal on the left. In the middle is Venice Island. It's called Venice Island because what you see in the video happens during bigger events. The apartment complexes were built against the wishes of the residents, but money talks. This flood though is far greater than any I've ever seen there...likely beating Floyd, Lee/Irene, and the 1996 melt.

the video of it was pretty clear. Especially the one with it passing over the bridge. It was a monster. And not something we see on the East coast very often. 

Can you post a link? I grew up not terribly far from there and still have family in the near area.
