Lots going on, significant earthquake in Taiwan (M6.7), some damage reported as well as injuries. Impacts should be in the low hundreds of millions of USD.
Severe weather in the US, a tornado ripped through New Orleans last night causing quite a bit of damage and at least one death. NWS Local Storm Reports are coming in across the region as the storm system moves west …
Today the much weakened system will be pushing east across Georgia/South Carolina and will be moving offshore this evening. It has lost a lot of energy but might still cause some strong thunderstorms, so keep your weather radios armed.
And of course the Ukraine thing grinds on. Hard to know what to say about that, the level of propaganda all around is insane, and there is virtually no reliable information in the public realm. So trust no one, and stay tuned … I suspect we are in that dangerous period where things are moving to a new equilibrium, but the people who don’t want or realize that may act to blow up (literally in this case) that trend. Perhaps by early April we will know.
