I thought this was an unusual track this hurricane is taking towards our western coastline.

Even though we typically get raging storms this time of year in the PNW ( southwest coastal for BC) this one is unusual.


Discussion # 50

It's due to make landfall around Monday evening to Tuesday afternoon on the BC Coast
It's quite stormy here to begin with, might be hard to tell when it's here as it merges with other storms. It's done nothing but rain the past week or so. Still it's something to be aware of due to the damaging winds, possibly flash flooding and mudslides. The windfield will widen even as Ana weakens. acuweather



A siege of Pacific storms will continue to drench and blast the coastal Northwest into this week and will be joined by Ana. The rounds of heavy rain will be enough to cause incidents of flash flooding, mudslides and travel delays from northern California to western Oregon, western Washington and southwestern British Columbia.

I have an interesting view point. What is the worst hurricane evar? Katrina? Maybe. I was there. It was pretty lame. Side of the apartment got tore off, crack heads walking around in 160 mph gusts collecting scrap. Nothing serious. The water situation though

Its forecast to downgrade to a closed low by sun, shouldnt be too concerend let me check some model data. Though mudslides would not be out of the question

October 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:

Metro Vancouver
The remains of tropical storm Ana will approach the BC coast early in the week.

The remains of tropical storm Ana will move towards the BC coast late Monday and Tuesday. The weather associated will be typical of an intense fall storm where storm warnings are likely for the marine areas with corresponding wind warnings for coastal public regions. There will likely be heavy rainfalls as well with 50 to 100 mm possible through the period. Weather warnings are expected to be issued tomorrow.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Lived through the worst of it on western Vancouver Island. Had some slight winds and heavy rainfall. Nothing compared to 2006 when my entire #in town flooded and people were kayaking down the main street. 2009 was bad too. This? this is nothing.

Ok thanks. Yes please check. It said it won't be a hurricane by the time it gets here but an Extratropical storm or cyclone. I don't really know the difference if it's called a cyclone. It will be over cold water as it moves North, not warm enough to sustain as a hurricane

The worst one I experienced here in the Fraser valley was a winter storm that came from Siberia. Power was out for days. I hsd an inch of ice inside the windows. The trees stayed bent over. It was around 1988 or ' 89

Not sure how worst is classified. Usually goes by death toll and damage I would think. Katrina was bad, but that seemed more to do with the poor response. The levees broke and that fault lies with who made them: LaFarge cement, Hilary Clinton, it was alleged. It's below sea level and New Orleans was in a bad spot.

I believe I was working in Hells' Gate at the time of the storm that you mention. We had a nasty storm and the tram was out for a few days with people stuck across the river, lol.

Well as long as the national guard isn't trying to hem you in you will be perfectly fine. As soon as they or their equivalent shows up you have bigger problems than a hurricane. The Air Force though.... They straightened up the super dome real quick inside a day. Lol, it went from being a humanitarian crises to an orderly evacuation within 24 hours. I was there 5 days total. Almost got shot by our brave weekend warriors too

Keep us posted. My family lives in Campbell river. You're not concerned with choppy waters?

I'm in the Fraser valley on the mainland. It's still raining here, bit of wind. I'm mostly expecting power outages from fallen trees and the usual turbid water from heavy rains. Our water hasn't been good to drink. It's yellow. I'm boiling it. I got super sick about a month ago on the first heavy rainfall. I wasn't aware there was an advisory. I'm not risking getting that sick again. I puked for 16 hours non stop. So my prep plans include extra stored water.

Looks like the track takes it higher up the coast near the queen charlottes.

All is calm here. Except the power went out for a minute about an hour ago
From NOAA

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
At 500 am HST, 1500 UTC, the center of post-tropical cyclone Ana was located near latitude 42.2 north, longitude 147.9 west. The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the east-northeast near 46 mph, 74 km/h, and this general motion is expected to continue today. A decrease in forward motion and a turn toward the east is forecast tonight and Monday as extratropical Ana interacts with another deep low to the west.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph, 95 km/h, with higher gusts. Only slight weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 310 miles, 500 km from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 992 mb, 29.30 inches.

For newly homeless people this can be dangerous if they can't find shelter from the wind and rain. In the fall and early winter seasons, the PNW usually gets pounded by wind and rain and temperatures commonly between 20 and 60 fahrenheit. Temperatures in this range can lead to hypothermia if the person is wet for the requisite period of time. In the PNW, it's very easy to get wet! Fall and winter are the hardest times for the homeless in the PNW.

People who've been homeless for a while tend to know about this better than "noobies", but it comes at tremendous cost.
