Red Flag Warnings Continue across Southwest, Great Plains

Another day of dangerous fire weather conditions continues across the U.S. Southwest and Great Plains, according to NWS forecast.

Record heat, “long duration single-digit humidity,” and strong, gusty winds of over 50mph have combined to create extensive critical fire-weather conditions across a vast region, prompting the the National Weather Service (NWS) to raise Red Flag Warnings across much of the Southwest and into the Great Plains.

“Elevated to critical fire weather conditions continue across most of the Southwest into the Great Plains, with an area of Extremely Critical risk highlighted in extreme south central Kansas into the eastern Texas Panhandle. Record heat, gusty winds and low relative humidity values will continue the high fire danger through at least Wednesday,” NWS forecast.

Deadly Snowstorm Heads East

Thousands of flights cancelled as deadly snowstorm pummels US Midwest

The storm is moving east over the Ohio Valley and is forecast to affect the central Appalachians and mid-Atlantic region before hitting Washington, D.C., said NWS.

  • The deadly, late winter storm began in Montana dumping heavy snow on the Midwestern U.S., causing hundreds of accidents on the highways, and moving east.
  • At least six people were killed in weather-related accidents, as of posting.
  • Dozens of additional towns and cities have declared snow emergencies.
  • Winter storm warnings were in effect in large portions of the Upper Midwest and the Mid-Atlantic states on Tuesday.
  • “The storm system impacting the Midwest will shift into the northeast U.S. on Wednesday, bringing a plethora of weather hazards. Heavy snow, especially in the central Appalachians and northern Mid-Atlantic, strong winds, coastal flooding and rough seas are a few of the weather hazards which may lead to dangerous travel conditions, localized power outages and property damage.” NWS said.

Flooding in north-central Nigeria displaces at least a million people, killing 300, destroying homes and public infrastructure

Flooding has ravaged vast areas in 6 states of north-central Nigeria, displacing more than a million people, killing at least 300 people and tens of thousands of livestock, destroying farmlands and hundreds of thousands of homes, roads and bridges.

  • “The worst hit was Kogi State, closely followed by Benue State. The two states had the worst cases because of their positioning along the River Niger and River Benue. In fact, in the case of Kogi, many people have even fled to parts of Anambra State located in the southeast region, but we have followed them and established camps there also,” according to the National Emergency Management Agency.
  • “Many people are still missing and we still receive distress calls from communities in danger of being submerged.”
  • Describing the flood as colossal, the NEMA official mentioned Plateau, Nasarawa, Kwara, and Niger as other north-central states badly hit by the flood,”  said a report.

Mali

The humanitarian crisis in the north of Mali continues deteriorating, as people struggle with the effects of armed conflict and severe flooding, which  has destroyed crops and sent food prices soaring, said ICRC.

  • “Basic foodstuffs have become difficult for most people to obtain in the Timbuktu, Kidal, Mopti and Gao areas because of the high cost,” said the head of the ICRC regional delegation for Mali and Niger.
  • About 420,000 people in Timbuktu, Gao, Kidal and Mopti areas have been severely affected.
