February 9 - Turkey Earthquake

On February 6, 2023, a catastrophic and deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck southern and central Turkey. The quake occurred west of the city of Gaziantep, causing widespread damage and thousands of fatalities in the region and was closely followed by numerous aftershocks - including one quake which was almost as large as the first. Due to the severity, the final death toll is anticipated to keep increasing and may not be known for weeks due to the sheer volume of rubble that needs to be sifted. According to the Associated Press and Reuters, more than 11,000 people have been confirmed dead as a result of the earthquake. On Wednesday, rescue teams have continued searching for survivors buried in the rubble of thousands of buildings destroyed by the earthquake and aftershocks. Turkey currently has tens of thousands of aid workers in the earthquake zone, and search teams from more than two dozen other nations have also joined them. However, many people are still waiting for assistance, and the likelihood of finding survivors is decreasing. In some areas, the cold, road closures, and damage in the region have also impeded mobility and access. Adelheid Marschang, a Senior Emergency Officer with the World Health Organization, described the situation as "a crisis on top of multiple crises" and estimated that up to 23 million people could be impacted in the earthquake-affected area.

August 1 - McKinney Fire

The McKinney Fire is a fast-growing wildfire fueled by strong winds from thunderstorms and high temperatures in Northern California has grown to 55,493 acres, becoming the state’s largest wildfire so far this year and forcing evacuations in rural neighborhoods. According to Cal Fire, the McKinney Fire started on Friday, July 29, 2022 in Siskiyou County at Hwy 96 and McKinney Creed Rd, southwest of Klamath River. A portion of Hwy 96 remains closed due to the fire and travelers should check CalTrans road conditions prior to traveling as the fire is 0% contained. The NY Times says that the blaze began burning through dry timber in the Klamath National Forest in Siskiyou County near the Oregon state line. The fire has caused thick smoke to cover the area and flames to burn through hillsides in sight of the houses. As the fire continues to spread, more than 4,900 structures are threatened and over 100 structures have burned so far. On July 30, 2022, Governor Gavin Newsome of California declared a state of emergency for Siskiyou County, and nearly 3,000 people have been ordered to evacuate since then. In Siskiyou County 60 hikers were rescued by Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team in Oregon. While there are no evacuation orders issued for Jackson County, the area does remain under watch for fire risk since smoke and ash from the fire are impacting the area. Local search and rescue teams are looking through evacuation zones for hikers and campers as there is likely little to no cell service on parts of the trail and may not know how close they are to the fire. Sources also say that the fire presents an “immediate threat to life” and the area is “lawfully closed to public access.”

Tropical Storm Arthur formed Saturday, May 16, 2020 in the Atlantic ocean. Arthur is moving toward the north-northeast near 9 mph with a turn toward the northeast and an increase in forward speed expected during the next 24 to 48 hours.  On the forecast track, Arthur will remain well offshore the east coast of Florida, Georgia, and  South Carolina today, and then move near or just east of the coast of North Carolina on Monday. Arthur is forecast to turn away from the U.S. East Coast on Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 45 mph with higher gusts and some additional strengthening is forecast during the next 24 to 36 hours. However, Arthur is likely to lose tropical characteristics on Tuesday. At this time, there is a tropical storm warning in effect for, Surf City to Duck North Carolina, Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds. Arthur is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches over coastal North Carolina tonight and Monday, with locally higher amounts. In addition, Swells generated by Arthur are affecting portions of the southeast U.S. coast and are expected to spread northward along the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast during the next day or two. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions across much of the U.S. southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts.
