This one snuck in without much warning...



Packing 150 mph sustained winds, a storm some meteorologists are calling the “biggest storm in history” will hit coastal regions of the U.S. this Saturday, generating 45-foot waves, and dumping multiple feet of rainfall across an area including three states and two countries.


Grab your Wife.. Grab your kids.. Grab your life rafts.. Learn to Swim!

Ok, so maybe a little over the top but this storm could bring some serious damage in it's wake. Best wishes and strong vibes for the folk who will be caught in this terrible storm. Best of luck to you and your loved ones. Since they're calling this the biggest storm in history, and nearly 50 foot waves... A lot can be said about what brought this monster on. I don't know if it's global warming or God's wrath or HAARP. All I do know is... It's a scary one. I've never seen a storm push 50 foot waves before. I believe (and I could be mistaken) Katrina and Rita only pushed 20 foot waves.

50 foot is damn high!!!



While the nation’s media — even in the areas set to be hit by the approaching storm — continue to focus on Hurricanes Matthew and Nicole, a more powerful storm is headed for the Pacific Northwest with hurricane force winds cutting a 100 mile swath through the coast of Oregon and Washington.

The National Weather Service issued an extraordinary storm alert yesterday, warning against a. “worst case scenario, historical windstorm…that would be long remembered,” the alert stated. At that time, forecasters pegged the odds of the “worst-case scenario” landfall at 1 in 3. They’ve since darkened the outlook, saying the odds of a catastrophic outcome are 50–50.

A lot of houses will slide down all those steep hills and ridges in Washington State. When I lived out there it was not rare to see your neighbors house sitting in the middle of the road after one of these storms. Even more of the coastal areas and islands have been stacked with expensive real-estate, where once lived the trees and brush that kept those hills in place.

Holy crap!

Well, members in the region had better be putting all their bug-out bags and pre-prepared hardened locations, bunkers in the hills, and other sundry escape plans into effect, because if this thing turns out as bad as predicted, it looks like it will shred the effected area. From the look of the infographic on the page you linked to, the effects could be felt WELL inland, and there is a severe risk of coastal flooding, and the swelling of any river, or tributary of a river which flows into the sea in the area as well!

Be safe everyone!

Not to rain on the parade but that info is a couple days old.

Current NWS warnings for Oregon, Washington coast is sustained 40-50 mph & gusts to 80. Still pretty bad.

Is it just me or has weather hyperbole gone over the top in recent years?

We even had a local meteorologist telling parents to put bike helmets on their kids in case of hail out here.

I'm not saying this isn't a seriously bad weather situation, but it seems like every bad storm lately is reported on like it's the end of the world and not just a bad storm that needs to be prepared for in a sober way.

Adapt2030 put a good video out on it a couple of days ago. Been following to see if what he says will happen comes to fruition. Stay safe up there.

Unless my ex wife is reading this. She should go hiking.

Seattle isn't ready for any type of extreme weather. I live a little south of the city and yesterday power was out in some places just from the wind the night before, which wasn't really that bad. Bug out bags ready and I have an inflatable raft to jump in too if needed lol. This is my first winter in Washington so I'm not sure what to expect. I didn't know typhoons ever hit up here.

I'm in it right now, but not on the coast. I'm in SW Washington and so far it's been intense rain and a little wind. The wind is supposed to pick up later. The Portland weather service and the alerts I've been getting are not making it seem catastrophic. The wind speeds are normal for winter storms and the main fear is falling limbs and power outages.

All week we've been getting storm after storm. This storm is a remnant of a typhoon and is supposed to be over tonight.

The coast is getting hit hard and there were two tornadoes yesterday, but this isn't terribly unusual for this area this time of year.

So, according to your source, this is not an unprecedented storm. It happened once before in 1962!

Its a serious storm all right. My sympathies to the residents of the West coast. Please stay safe.

But lets put that word "unprecedented' in proper perspective.

Bring it on! I got me a generator and lots of food, plenty of wood and gas. As long as the house holds together, we'll be fine. The original report here is just hyperbole. There are not going to be 150mph winds. I was here for the Columbus Day storm in 1962 and a couple of "Arctic Express" storms a few years ago when the power was out for more than a week and a telephone pole in front of the house snapped in two. I doubt this storm will equal what we have already been through.

I used to live in Puget Sound, moved three years ago to southwest Washington.
This is a normal storm. We just hadn't had one in a few years. Areas of Seattle lose power because of tree limbs falling. Seattle won't flood if you're on a hill, and that's most of Seattle.

When I lived in Kent, the lower parts did flood, but it was from uncleared storm drains. The dam up the green river did break, but they knew about it beforehand and lined the river with a barrier wall. It wasn't catastrophic. If you lose power, power workers are experts and will restore the lines quickly.
Snow in western Washington is more serious because they don't have enough plows and the hills. A few years ago people were stuck on the freeway.
But this isn't snow and snow is rare. In winter we get remnants of tropical storms. Its what keeps the winters mild and gives the area it's rainy reputation.

I am on the coast probably near you, so far not bad. It is a warm storm so that makes it different. Years back we had heavy rain 3-4 weeks at a time with major wind, so far this seems not to bad but this afternoon is when the hard part is supposed to hit, so far we are not even having power outages.

Right on I had no idea. Listening to the news it sounds like a hurricane is about to hit haha. I'm used to bad storms in the south so it's weird to me people are freaking out. I'd love to see it snow sometime, even if the city would shut down.

I live on the coast. Parents called this morning all worried.

"What are you going to do??"

I said, "Get a hair cut."

Yeah, it's damp out. And windy.

Thanks for the good vibes though.
