    Elsa becomes 1st hurricane of Atlantic season


    Elsa strengthened into the first hurricane of the Atlantic season on Friday, as it slammed Barbados as a Category 1 storm and threatened other parts of the eastern Caribbean.

    Why it matters: Elsa is the earliest fifth-named storm on record. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has predicted an above-average storm season in the Atlantic this year.

    The big picture: A hurricane warning has been issued for St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia and parts of Haiti, the National Hurricane Center said Friday morning.
    • A tropical storm warning was in effect for parts of the Dominican Republic, Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica and Martinique.
    • Outer rain bands from the storm will impact Puerto Rico late Friday into Saturday, NOAA said, adding that flooding and mudslides are possible.
    • NOAA said there is a "risk of storm surge, wind and rainfall impacts in the Florida Keys and portions of the Florida Peninsula early next week. However, the forecast uncertainty remains larger than usual."

    Our thought bubble via Axios climate and energy reporter Andrew Freedman: Both the intensity and track forecast for Hurricane Elsa have a higher amount of uncertainty than we typically see at this time range.
    • How much the storm interacts with land, particularly the higher elevations of Hispaniola, may determine how strong the storm is if it directly affects Florida.

      • Two confirmed dead, about 20 still missing in Shizuoka mudslide as heavy rain hits Japan





        Two people died and about 20 others remain missing after torrential rain triggered a large mudslide southwest of Tokyo on Saturday, destroying more than 10 houses, local authorities said.

        A video posted on Twitter showed black water mixed with soil and sand flowing rapidly from the top of a mountain — making a rumbling sound — at about 10:30 a.m. in Atami, Shizuoka Prefecture.

        "I've lived here for about 60 years but this is my first (such) experience," said 70-year-old Masaru Isei, who lives about 50 meters from where the mudslide occurred.

        Isei heard what sounded like heavy rain at around 10:45 a.m. When he opened a window on the second floor of his house he saw that his storage shed had been swept away and that a car in the parking lot was sinking into the ground. He then evacuated with his wife to an acquaintance's house located on higher ground, taking only his smartphone and wallet.

        An 84-year-old man first noticed a rotting smell. When he looked upstream of a nearby river, he saw a huge amount of soil and sand about 5 meters high moving toward him.

        The river, usually less than 2 meters wide, was overflowing with the mixture and had swollen to several dozen meters wide, he said.

        The speed of the mudslide is estimated to have been around 40 kilometers per hour, said Motoyuki Ushiyama, a professor at the Shizuoka University Center for Integrated Research and Education of Natural Hazards.

        The site is in a sediment disaster warning area, Ushiyama said. It had been raining heavily in Shizuoka for some time.

        Fumitoshi Imaizumi, a professor of erosion control engineering at Shizuoka University, said the area is prone to mudslides due to volcanic sediment accumulating on slopes.

        "The total amount of rainfall in the area was quite heavy, so it created conditions for (mudslides) to occur."

        About 200 homes had been left without power, an Atami city official said. The mudslide reached the nearby coast, according to police.

        "I heard a horrible sound and saw a mudslide flowing downwards as rescue workers were urging people to evacuate. So I ran to higher ground," a leader of a temple near the disaster told NHK.

        "When I returned, houses and cars that were in front of the temple were gone."

        Around 21,000 households in Atami, home to hot spring resorts, were ordered to ensure their safety immediately as the city government issued the highest level of evacuation alert.

        "Because of the heavy rain, the ground loosened and the mudslide occurred … it picked up speed and swept away houses together with people," Shizuoka Gov. Heita Kawakatsu told reporters.

        Rescue workers are searching for those who remain missing. They also received about 10 calls from people who are trapped in their houses due to the mudslide.

        The Ground Self-Defense Force dispatched around 30 members to the area in response to a request from the prefectural government.

        Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga called an emergency meeting with members of his Cabinet in the evening, instructing them to work with local authorities to ascertain the scope of the damage and calling on the public to be ready to evacuate when necessary and "take action to protect your lives.": https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/20...vy-rain-japan/

          • Elsa kills 3 in Caribbean as storm closes in on Cuba and Florida

            Tropical Storm Elsa caused at least three deaths as it tore across Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Saturday ahead of its expected arrival in Cuba.

            What's happening: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) declared a state of emergency in 15 Florida counties including Miami-Dade, where officials suspended a search and rescue operation Saturday after the storm was forecast to strike the state early next week.

            Two people died as the storm lashed the Dominican Republic Saturday, AP notes. Another death and substantial damage was also reported in St. Lucia.

            State of play: The storm had maximum sustained winds pf 70mph as it passed 140 miles east of Kingston, Jamaica, per an 8 p.m. National Hurricane Center advisory.

            Hurricane warnings were in effect from southern Haiti to the border with the Dominican Republic in the south, and tropical storm watches were in effect for regions including Florida and Cuba.

            The big picture: Elsa strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane on Friday before weakening into a tropical storm.

            What to watch: Heavy rains from the storm could trigger potentially significant flash flooding and mudslides across parts of southern Hispaniola and Jamaica into Sunday, with more flooding possible for parts of the Florida Keys and Florida Peninsula early next week, according to the NHC.: https://www.axios.com/elsa-tropical-...06f2d7e83.html

                          • Tropical Storm Elsa closes in on Cuba and Florida: 180,000 Cubans evacuated

                            Officials in Cuba evacuated 180,000 residents amid concerns about flooding from the deadly Tropical Storm Elsa, as it brushed along the nation's southern region on Monday, per AP.

                            The latest: Elsa was packing maximum sustained winds of 65 mph 245 miles southeast of Havana about 2a.m. Monday and was expected to weaken while passing over central Cuba later in the day before heading toward the Florida Straits in the evening, according to the National Hurricane Center.

                            What to expect: The storm is forecast to pass near the Florida Keys early Tuesday and move near or over parts of Florida's west coast of Florida on Tuesday and Wednesday.
                            • "Slight restrengthening is possible after Elsa moves over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico," the National Hurricane Center said.

                            State of play: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Saturday declared a state of emergency in 15 counties including Miami-Dade, where crews conducted a controlled demolition to remove the parts of a Surfside, Florida, condo that partially collapsed last month.

                            The big picture: Elsa strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane on Friday before weakening into a tropical storm Saturday.
                            • Two people died as the storm lashed the Dominican Republic Saturday, AP notes. Another death and substantial damage was also reported in St. Lucia.
