Clarksville, TN – I met Rob Leunberger during a recent memorial run he organized for a friend who tragically lost his life on the back of his motorcycle. You can read that story here.
As I joined the group for the day’s ride, I was on the outside looking in. I didn’t know most of those who had gathered to honor their friend, on this scorching hot summer day.
At the end of the day though, I had witnessed an amazing friendship among men and women, brought together by a motorcycle, with a love for one another that was special. They would do ANYTHING for each other!

Nashville, TN – The 10 dams operated by the U.S. Corps of Engineers in the Cumberland River Basin performed as designed during the wettest February on record, saving an estimated $1.72 billion in would-be flood damage to the region.
The ability to hold back water where possible reduced impacts in Nashville by as much as 16 feet, preventing $1.5 billion of damage that would have resulted from higher water. The water level on the Cumberland River in Music City reached 40.93 feet with projects operating, but would have reached an estimated 57.2 feet if the storage projects upstream were not in existence.

Nashville, TN – Tennessee’s 2019-20 fishing regulations went into effect March 1st and anglers are encouraged to obtain the new Tennessee Fishing Guide now available at locations throughout the state, on the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency website (www.tnwildlife.org) and on the TWRA “On the App.”
Hard copies of the guide are available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold and at the TWRA’s four regional offices located in Jackson (Region I), Nashville (Region II), Crossville (Region III), and Morristown (Region IV). This year’s statewide and specific region regulation changes to are featured on page 4 of the guide.

Jackson, TN – Due to high waters in the Mississippi River Floodwaters Zone, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency reports the closure of all big game hunting in the zone, effective Sunday, January 6th, 2019.
The Mississippi River stage has reached 34 feet at the Caruthersville, MO gauge. In accordance with Proclamation 16-45, all big game hunting is closed immediately in the Mississippi River Floodwaters Zone. The zone will remain closed until the Mississippi River state falls to 32 feet at the Memphis gauge.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to store water at Barkley Reservoir, reduce Ohio River and Mississippi River flood crests
Written by Bill Peoples
Nashville, TN – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District announced today that it is continuing its flood control operation by using flood control storage in Lake Barkley to help mitigate the ongoing flood event on the Ohio River. This may cause minor high water impacts to communities along the Cumberland River in Lyon and Trigg Counties in Kentucky, and Stewart and Montgomery Counties in Tennessee.
Releases from Barkley Dam on the Cumberland River in Kuttawa, KY, are being reduced today as the Ohio River flood crest passes downstream. This reduction in discharge contributes to lowering the crest on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, thereby reducing flood risk at cities such as Paducah, KY, Cairo, IL, Memphis, TN, Vicksburg MS, and New Orleans, LA.

Greenbelt, MD – NASA’s Aqua satellite and NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite analyzed the temperatures in Hurricane Nate’s cloud tops and determined that the most powerful thunderstorms and heaviest rain areas were around the center of the tropical cyclone after it made landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi River.
At 8:00pm EDT/7:00pm CDT on October 7th, 2017 Hurricane Nate’s eye was at the mouth of the Mississippi River. National Weather Service radar data and surface observations indicated that Hurricane Nate made landfall near Biloxi, Mississippi, around 12:30am CDT/1:30am EDT on October 8th, with maximum winds of 85 mph (140 kph).

Pasadena, CA – Ocean currents and winds form an endless feedback loop: winds blow over the ocean’s surface, creating currents there. At the same time, the hot or cold water in these currents influences the wind’s speed.
This delicate dance is crucial to understanding Earth’s changing climate. Gathering data on this interaction can also help people track oil spills, plan shipping routes and understand ocean productivity in relation to fisheries.
Instruments already exist that measure ocean currents, and others that measure wind, such as NASA’s QuickScat and RapidScat. But a new, airborne radar instrument developed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, is able to measure both.

Pasadena, CA – The Louisiana coastline is sinking under the Gulf of Mexico at the rate of about one football field of land every hour (about 18 square miles of land lost in a year). But within this sinking region, two river deltas are growing. The Atchafalaya River and its diversion channel, Wax Lake Outlet, are gaining about one football field of new land every 11 and 8 hours, respectively (1.5 and 2 square miles per year).
Last fall, a team from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, showed that radar, lidar and spectral instruments mounted on aircraft can be used to study the growing deltas, collecting data that can help scientists better understand how coastal wetlands will respond to global sea level rise.
