The Northeastern United States is a region of the United States as defined by the United States Census Bureau. The region comprises nine states: the New England states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont; and the Mid-Atlantic states. ... Not all definitions of the Northeastern United States, however, are the same as the Census Bureau's.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mid-Atlantic_states  MID - ATLANTIC STATES

"The Mid-Atlantic states, also called middle Atlantic states or simply the mid Atlantic, form a region of the United States generally located between New England and the South. Its exact definition differs upon source, but the region often includes Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., Virginia, New York, West Virginia."

At least 24 people have perished during this heat wave, and there will be more.
People need to get to cooling centers if they have no air conditioning or way to stay cool at home.
If you need help make a call reach out and ask for someone to take you to a cooling center. Large libraries or supermarkets are often pretty cool, as are movie theaters. A lot of people have no choice but to go out and go to work. Try to limit activities as much as possible. If you have AC stay home if possible. Dress very cool and take cool off showers if you are stuck at home with no power etc. Check on older family members and moms at home with their kids; make sure their AC is working. - Yowbarb

I keep up with the weather around my neck of the woods with this website.
http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/imagery/eaus.html (http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/imagery/eaus.html)
 
I use the Flash Loop section and look at water vapor most of the time.
 
I have depended on this site for years and I have never seen a Water Vapor hole
form in the animation pictures like I saw off the northeast coast about 200 miles
off the coast. I do not know what caused it but it is way out of the ordinary.
Either something went through the vapor cloud level traveling upward or something
fell into the vapor cloud level. More than likely whatever caused it was a natural
phenomena but who knows.
  Only posting it because it is unique and giving a heads up to others that may
view weather via the Vapor Loop. If the phenomena shows up again then
it may be an indication of something falling into the atmosphere that we may not
normally know about.
 
It is not the eye of this low pressure system.

Storms sweep eastern U.S., 12 dead and 3 million without power
POSTED:   07/01/2012 01:00:00 AM MDTBy Jessica Gresko
The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Millions across the mid-Atlantic region sweltered Saturday in the aftermath of violent storms that pummeled the eastern U.S. with high winds and downed trees, killing at least 13 people and leaving 3 million without power during a triple-digit heat wave.

Power officials said the outages wouldn't be repaired for several days to a week, likening the damage to a serious hurricane. Emergencies were declared in Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, the District of Columbia and Virginia, where Gov. Bob McDonnell said the state had its largest non-hurricane outage in history, as more storms threatened.

In some Virginia suburbs of Washington, emergency 911 call centers were out of service and residents were told to call local police and fire departments. Huge trees fell across streets in Washington, leaving cars crunched up next to them, and onto the fairway at the AT&T National golf tournament in Maryland. Cellphone and Internet service was spotty and gas stations shut down. Residents were urged to conserve water until sewage plants returned to power.
The outages were especially dangerous because they left the region without air conditioning in an oppressive heat. Temperatures soared to 94 by midafternoon and were to hit 100 in Baltimore and Washington, where it had hit 104 on Friday.

"I've called everybody except for the state police to try to get power going," said Karen Fryer, resident services director at two assisted-living facilities in Washington.

The facilities had generator power but needed to go out for portable air-conditioning units. Fryer worried about a few of her 100 residents who needed backup power for portable oxygen.

More than 200 miles away in Morgantown, W.Va., Jeff and Alice Haney loaded their cart at Lowe's with cases of water, flashlights and batteries, and wiring for the generator they hoped would be enough to kick-start their air conditioner.

"We have a pool," Jeff Haney said, "so we'll be OK."

The storm did damage from Indiana to New Jersey, although the bulk of it was in West Virginia, Washington and suburban Virginia and Maryland.

At least six of the dead were killed in Virginia, including a 90-year-old woman asleep in bed when a tree slammed into her home. Two young cousins in New Jersey were killed when a tree fell on their tent while camping. Two were killed in Maryland, one in Ohio, one in Kentucky and one in Washington.

Utility officials said it could take at least several days to restore power to all customers because of the sheer magnitude of the outages and the destruction. Winds and toppled trees brought down entire power lines, and debris has to be cleared from power stations and other structures.

"This is very unfortunate timing," said Myra Oppel, a spokeswoman for Pepco, which reported more than 400,000 outages in Washington and its suburbs. "We do understand the hardship that this brings, especially with the heat as intense at is. We will be working around the clock until we get the last customer on."

Especially at risk were children, the sick and the elderly. In Charleston, W.Va., firefighters helped several people using walkers and wheelchairs get to emergency shelters.

Others sought refuge in shopping malls, movie theaters and other places where the air conditioning would be turned to "high."

Toll from the storms

Deaths: Authorities have confirmed at least 13 deaths related to the storms. Deaths were reported in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Ohio, Kentucky and New Jersey.

Power outages: About 418,000 were without power in Baltimore County; 1.25 million customers in Virginia, including the suburbs outside Washington; 443,000 in Washington, D.C.; 800,000 to 1 million in Ohio; 500,000 in West Virginia; and 170,000 in New Jersey.

Heat: The National Weather Service warned temperatures could climb near or above 100 degrees Saturday in many areas that were without electricity.

Hello Ahmoret and Welcome to the Town Hall!  We're so glad to have you join us here.  I too am from the region (northeast PA, more specifically).  Honestly, no I have not heard of the Watchers 4 program, but would like to take a look and listen, if you have a link for it.  I'd certainly appreciate it, and again, Welcome to the Town Hall!

Hi Mary! and thanks for your welcomed reply. If you are looking for the Watchers 4 radio program...it's on the youwusa website...radio programs. A very interesting discussion that raises a LOT of ideas..in my mind, anyway. Marshalls' guests are LA Marsulli and Richard Shaw. I'd love to hear what you think. Also... I don't usually post...in fact I'm not much for posting anywhere,,,but I have been waking up every morning for the past few days with the words "Star Wormwood" rolling around in my head. I get the whole deal about it and the Book of Revelations, but decided to follow my instinct, and research some more. Wow...I got more that I bargained for! There are several sites dealing with Nibiru/Star Wormwood/Dark Star/Sedna....and some really eye-opening info by NASA, and various professional groups. I don't know yet, how to get this info to Marshall....I'm sure he is aware and probably well-informed, but I'd sure like to hear his say on this. I am delighted to hear that you are from my area. Lets keep in touch. I'll close now and wish you and all a peaceful night, and comfort in knowing that we at at least know we are trying to get as best prepared as possible for the coming changes. The more I think I know...the less I realize I know....!!!! ....and I've got a long way to go.....

Ahmoret,  My apologies, I missed that one since my granddaughter was visiting, and it's still on my "To Do List".  I hate when I have to miss a show, but I promise to listen to it within the next few days, so I can give you my opinion on it.  Truthfully, since Marshall is such a busy man, I think the best way to speak with him, generally, is to call in on one of his shows!  He is always open to questions, and he has another show scheduled on July 31,   http://www.blogtalkradio.com/yowradio/2012/08/01/chemtrails-nibiru-planet-x-and-depopulation  Even if your question does stray from the current topic, he can usually give you an answer to your question.  So call in during the show, I'm sure he would be happy to hear from you!  We also have a topic on our boards where you can discuss your "Premonition Dreams" with all of the members.  It's a great topic!  To be waking up every morning with the words "Star Wormwood rolling around in your head, must certainly be some type of sign.  I know it would pretty much blow me away, if that was happening to me!  It was great hearing back from you again, and look forward to keeping in touch.  Don't forget, if you want, you can also send me a private message as well.  Take care...

Mary

Hi All. By now most of you have heard of the two tornadoes in and near NYC a couple days ago.
This has happened before, but if there are more of them in the near future, that might represent
an earth change. Time will tell. I posted about the tornadoes in teh East coast tornadoes topic.

A tornado swept out of the sea and hit a beachfront neighborhood in New York City on Saturday, hurling debris in the air, knocking out power and startling residents who once thought of twisters as a Midwestern phenomenon.
At the Breezy Point Surf Club, the tornado ripped the roofs off rows of cabanas, scattered deck chairs and left a heavy metal barbecue and propane tank sitting in the middle of a softball field, at least 100 yards from any nearby home. "It picked up picnic benches. It picked up Dumpsters," said the club's general manager, Thomas Sullivan. Half an hour later the weather was beautiful.

Two tornadoes hit New York City as severe weather lashes region
TORNADO
 
September 08, 2012|By David Ariosto, CNN
Severe weather barreled across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic on Saturday as a powerful cold front brought heavy rain, high winds and at least one tornado into a beachfront neighborhood of New York City.
A waterspout with winds up to 70 mph churned onshore and turned into a tornado toward Breezy Point, officials said, a Queens neighborhood on the western edge of the Rockaway peninsula.
Amateur video captured images of the twister spiraling a mixture of sand and debris, which was largely flung onto a nearby baseball field, according to Ross Dickman, a National Weather Service spokesman.

At least six dead as nor’easter slams East Coast with violent wind, rain, snow and floods

BOSTON — Residents along the East Coast on Friday battened down as heavy rain and gusting winds pummeled states from Maine to North Carolina.

The nor’easter was predicted to bring damaging winds — up to hurricane strength in some areas — along the Atlantic through Friday, according to the National Weather Service, which issued numerous severe-weather warnings and advisories lasting into Saturday.

At least six people were killed when fierce winds brought trees crashing down on roads, homes and other buildings. In the Putnam Valley area north of New York City, an 11-year-old boy was killed when a tree fell on a home, officials said. In Newport, R.I., a 72-year-old man was killed by a falling tree. In Baltimore County, Maryland, a 77-year-old woman was killed when a branch fell on her outside of her home. A 44-year-old man was killed in James City County, Va., when a tree branch fell on a car he was in. And in Chester, Va., a six-year-old who was asleep in bed was killed when a tree came crashing down into his family’s home. And in Connecticut, one person was killed in a car near the Stamford-Greenwich line.

Nearly two million people up and down the Eastern seaboard lost power on Friday: 392,000 in Massachusetts; 332,538 in Virginia and part of North Carolina; 323,000 in New York; 308,164 in Washington D.C. and Maryland; 224,242 in New Jersey; 143,000 in Rhode Island; 120,000 in Eastern Pennsylvania, and more than 40,000 each in Connecticut and Delaware.

Throughout the day Friday, at least 3,200 flights at airports between Washington to Boston had been canceled. At New York’s LaGuardia airport, which suspended all flights on Friday afternoon, 729 flights had been grounded by the end of the day.

[ Flights canceled, rough landings, passengers upchucking: It isn’t a good day to fly ]

In Boston, high tide peaked Friday morning at 14.67 feet, the third-highest level since record keeping began in 1928, with water lapping at the feet of skyscrapers in some districts, according to the Boston Globe. The next high tide, at midnight, was forecast to be even higher, threatening to break the record set by historic floodwaters in January.

Portions of New York received more than a foot of snow Thursday night. Syracuse University canceled a full day of classes because of snow for only the third time in its history. Meanwhile, more heavy rain was predicted for coastal areas from New Jersey to eastern Massachusetts, the Weather Service said, as it warned of coastal and inland flooding.

In New Jersey, the vacant former Trump Plaza Casino, which shuttered in 2014, was badly battered by the storm as gusts as high as 60 miles per hour ripped two 20-foot chunks from the building’s exterior.

On Friday, the winds in Boston kept people fighting with their umbrellas; most just pulled their hoods closer. A woman walking and texting in front of the John F. Kennedy Federal Building on New Sudbury Street almost lost her blue-flowered umbrella and her balance to a particularly strong gust. Despite the weather, some die-hard bikers still pedaled to work, and a couple even kept to their morning jog.

It was a terrible day to be a tourist. The courtyard of Faneuil Hall was deserted, and many of the city’s biggest attractions were closed.
.......................
Coastal Massachusetts was set to bear the brunt of the storm, with hurricane-strength winds in excess of 70 mph predicted for several areas in Cape Cod.
By early Friday afternoon, several roads were shut down around the Cape, including Massachusetts Route 6A in Brewster, a major thoroughfare that often floods when waters from the nearby marsh begin to rise. The boardwalk in Sandwich, Mass., a popular destination, was nearly underwater.

There are few areas of Cape Cod that are more vulnerable to the lashings of tide and wind than the quaint town of Chatham, which lies at the elbow of the peninsula, exposed to the elements from the east and south. For the past two days, public works employees have hauled in tons of sand to protect some of the most vulnerable landings that dot the shoreline, and that serve as conduits for the floodwaters that over wash local streets during such storms.

But Theodore L. Keon, director of coastal resources for Chatham, was under no illusions about stopping nature in its tracks, calling the fresh heaps of sand little more than “sacrificial nourishment” for the water rushing ashore. The Chatham area has already been hit by two severe storms this winter, most notably the one on Jan. 4, but Keon expected this one to be even worse.

“I’m concerned mostly because of the duration of this event,” Keon said Friday. “The last two January storms, while significant in terms of water elevation, were of fairly short duration. When you’ve got a storm like this that sits off the coast and you’ve got the constant pounding of the waves and high water because it’s not receding, that’s potentially more significant. Three or maybe even four high-tide cycles can really cause a lot of damage.”

Others on Cape Cod, where fierce winter gales are a fact of life, were inclined to take things in stride.

“For most of us who’ve been here for many years, this is just another storm,” said Andrew Crosby, who runs the Dennis Public Market on Route 6A. “We’re Cape Codders, we’re used to it.”

Which is not to say that daily routines are completely unaffected during such events.

“We sell a lot more bread than normal, a lot more dairy — and a lot more snack foods,” Crosby said Friday afternoon. “Cookies were hot yesterday. People want that sugary food, and then they want to sit there and watch the storm on TV and go with the flow.”

In Marshfield, a coastal town about 30 miles southeast of Boston, a state of emergency had been declared ahead of the storm. On Friday, a number of streets were still impassable nearly two hours after high tide.

Marshfield residents Kevin and Cindy Hufnagle decided to take a walk to see for themselves what they’d been watching on television. They were grateful that they still had power, and that there wasn’t any snow to shovel.

“We’ve lived here almost 35 years,” Kevin Hufnagle said. Nearby, crashing waves looked to be as tall as the two-story bungalows they sprayed. “We’ve never seen it that bad before.”

The Hufnagles said they’d seen cars driving in circles trying to find a safe route out of the area and they were worried about what Friday night’s high tide would bring.

In Duxbury, Mass., just south of Marshfield, the Snug Harbor Fish Company saw a slow but steady stream of customers buying salmon, mussels and chowder, despite the storm.

“I love that you’re open!” one customer exclaimed.

“This is New England,” owner Diana Shannon answered. Shannon has owned the cafe and market since 1997 and had never seen water out in front of her store until the “bomb cyclone” storm in January. The water returned Friday, nearly waist deep alongside her shop.

“You just pray,” said Shannon, whose husband is a commercial fisherman. “We moved everything, battened down everything.”

Shannon wasn’t sure yet whether she’d come back to the shop around midnight to watch the water approach again, or stay at home and “toss and turn and wait until 6 a.m. and then come in. My gut is we’ll be fine.”

In the Washington area, high winds wreaked havoc on the Friday commute. A pilot landing at Dulles International Airport Friday morning reported a “very bumpy” descent in the high winds.

“PRETTY MUCH EVERY ONE ON THE PLANE THREW UP,” the official pilot report stated. “PILOTS WERE ON THE VERGE OF THROWING UP.”

Numerous downed trees were reported in local neighborhoods and roads in the Washington area.
The Office of Personnel Management announced that all federal offices in the Washington area would be closed Friday. Nearly two dozen area school districts canceled classes, and the Smithsonian museums and zoo were closed for the day.

At the Washington Monument, where flags had been flying at half-staff to honor the Rev. Billy Graham, at least half a dozen flags appeared tattered by the wind.

The snow and rain were predicted to taper off by late Friday or Saturday morning as the storm system drifted farther out into the Atlantic Ocean, the National Weather Service said.
