Yeah that looked pretty bad. No need for on-site reporters to embellish conditions, we all know how bad these storms are.

guessing you guys are talking about his bracing the winds during report while people in background stroll by? Also did u catch the wind is blowing against his back by looking at bushes so he is 100% taking it. Twc is trash and that there IS fake news.

Well, the good thing about TWC is that both the left and right can unite against this fake news. Wonder if that was a fake video made by a Russian bot. I just heard about the ability to make fake movies!!! Gonna train us to ignore real weather situations!!!!!

It erodes credibility. Some people may choose to ignore legit warnings and potentially put themselves, family, and rescue workers in danger.

To your point Grselig, when legit warnings are ignored, the following happened in 1935 in Florida.

To me that was just stupid all around, I bet they did not even notice. Did anyone call TWC out on it and expect a public apology? I think they (someone) would. In fact maybe we should start a petition to get them to. Of all the things to fake this is just stupid, I read somepone did email them and TWC stated that he was exhausted and trying to stay afoot on wet ground, versus thouse on pavement in background. That doesnt explain leaning into the wind in the wrong direction which is obvious by which way that long grass is blowing.

And when did the TWC last have credibility? This just puts them below a credibility level, never watching them again to see live footage, although that is the best place but now i wonder how many times they faked bracing the winds etc.

Yeah, Jman. Whatever they had is lost. Is Seidell and crew all frauds. Now what about (and I can't remember his name!!) oh yeah, the famous CNN newscaster (Vandrbilt's kid - Anderson Cooper) when he many years ago tied himself to a tree to prevent being blown away by a hurricane. Was that real?

Seems no one caught that he was bracing with the wind to his back too, hence he would have been more likely to blow over, lmao I just can't.

On another note Helene is posed to strike the UK, how often is it that this happens? In recent years it appears to have become increasingly common, I never recall them being pretty prime spots for tropical systems. Even moreso than here, I think two already hit there this year I believe.

I guess one day we will read what the Seidel deal was about when a former employee spills the tea. I guess Seidel won't be setting up on wet grass anymore. Someone should tell him to watch out for wet leaves this fall. Always a danger.

Did anyone see on the news, the tragedy that happened on Thorne Creek in Hazlet, where 2 men drowned. We live on that creek and that was so horrible. I would not go outside in fear I would see one of them. The view on my avatar is the bridge they jumped off of..

They made out ok thank goodness. There was some flooding in the area but nothing catastrophic. They also lost power for a short time.

https://icelandmag.is/article/new-study-confirms-monster-volcano-katla-charging-eruption

New study confirms monster volcano Katla is charging up for an eruption

The volcano is long "overdue" for an eruption, as it has historically erupted once every 40-80 years. The last known eruption in Katla was in 1918.

The studies showed that Katla is emitting enormous quantities of CO2....These enormous CO2 emissions confirm significant activity in the volcano, Evgenia told RÚV: "It is highly unlikely that these emissions could be produced by geothermal activity. There must also be a magma build up to release this quantity of gas."

She points out that more studies are needed to determine if the gas emissions from Katla are stable, or if they are increasing. "It is well known from other volcanoes, for example in Hawaii and Alaska, that CO2 emissions increase weeks or years ahead of eruptions. This is a clear sign we need to keep a close eye on Katla. She isn't just doing nothing, and these findings confirm that there is something going on."
