USA in the Grip of the Polar Plunge

Along with AccuWeather blogger Jesse Ferrell, we here at SDR have been watching the advance of the polar cold air into the mid section of the nation and wondering what this means for the upcoming weeks of winter. He states: “There have been twice as many snow records broken this month so far versus last January. Twice as many cold weather records have been broken/tied as warm weather records this month. Over 1,700 low temperature records and over 1,000 snow records have been broken in the last month.” SDR predicts some hectic weeks to come.

SDR Demo Project Underway

The “Whitehorse” Project was recently awarded to Southern Disaster Recovery. The demolition of the JP Stevens Textile mill in Greenville, South Carolina included screening of C&D for recycling and salvage and the crushing of concrete for recycling. Approximately 35-thousand tons of debris will be managed by SDR.

Candid Camera!

Al McClaran, Operations Manager of Southern Disaster Recovery was in Georgetown, South Carolina this week visiting the scene of the fire on Front Street which destroyed seven historic buildings and damaged one more. The September 25th inferno left 13 people homeless and 130 without jobs.

Also touring the cleanup effort was South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. Always the networker, Al gave the first term governor an ear full about the services of SDR!

Fall Severe Weather Awareness Day Across Alabama and Tennessee

National Weather Service offices across Alabama and Tennessee are supporting Severe Weather Awareness Day on Wednesday, October 16, 2013. The purpose of this day is to call attention to a secondary peak in severe weather that occurs during the fall season. Although severe weather outbreaks across the Tennessee Valley, including the potential for strong to violent tornadoes, are more common during March, April and May, severe weather can happen at any time throughout the year. Since 1950, 71 tornadoes have occurred across North Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee during the fall months (September/October/November/December).

The secondary spike in tornado/severe weather activity in the fall months historically peaks in November (as seen in the chart below on the left). However, as can also be seen in the chart below on the right, over the last 10 years (since 2003), tornadoes have more commonly occurred during October.

FALL SEASON SEVERE WEATHER EPISODES ACROSS THE HUNTSVILLE NWS FORECAST AREA

    • 2010: Numerous severe thunderstorms and several tornadoes affected the Tennessee Valley during late October. One of these was an EF-2 tornado which affected Jackson and Dekalb counties.
    • 2009: Severe thunderstorms produced widespread wind damage across much of North Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee on October 9th. An EF-1 tornado touched down just south of Fayetteville, Tennessee resulting in extensive damage around the Timber Lake community.
    • 2007: Severe thunderstorms caused considerable straight-line wind damage across Northwest Alabama on October 18th. An EF-1 tornado tracked into southern Lawrence County, downing several trees in Bankhead National Forest.
    • 2004: Severe weather occurred before the typical November secondary peak. Tornadoes struck Lauderdale and Colbert Counties on October 18th (check out the storm survey here).
    • 2003: A significant line of thunderstorms plowed through the Tennessee Valley on November 18th, resulting in significant straight-line wind damage. Damaging wind gusts can be just as destructive as tornadoes.
    • 2002: The infamous Veteran’s Day Tornado Outbreak produced an F3 tornado in Cullman County, which damaged more than 150 structures (check out the storm survey here).
    • 2001: Six of the eight tornadoes that hit Northern Alabama this year occurred with the November 24th outbreak. This event broke a record for the number of tornadoes that occurred during a 24-hour period in the state of Alabama.
    • Of course, the infamous 1989 Huntsville tornado occurred in November as well. This F4 tornado (207-260 mph winds) tore through south Huntsville on November 15, 1989, touching down on Redstone Arsenal at 4:30pm. The tornado eventually killed 21 people, injured more than 460 people, and caused more than $250 million in damages.

CCM Expo a Success for SDR Team

The SDR team arrived early and exited late in the day after a successful showing at the 31st Annual Connecticut Conference of Municipalities Conference and Expo. The team ate breakfast with CCM President and Bridgeport Mayor, Bill Finch along with members of Bridgeport’s Management team. Numerous folks passed by the booth to learn more about the company’s services and the advantages of pre-position contracts.
