Nashville, TN – In the early morning hours of March 3rd, a storm system moved through the state of Tennessee which produced deadly tornadoes killing 24 people, damaging over 1,500 structures and leaving over 80,000 Tennesseans without power across four counties.
In Nashville, one of those tornadoes incapacitated one of four master sites that supports a statewide land mobile radio system, severely inhibiting public safety communications across the region for the first two days of the response effort.
Clarksville, TN – The overwhelming devastation that’s hit Texas from Tropical Storm Harvey, has captured the hearts of the world. I don’t think most people can fathom what’s going on there and how destructive this storm has been. You’ve seen the video, the images, the stories.
This isn’t what this post is all about.
In my own little way, I just want Texas to know that we’re pulling for you and we’re helping with our money, our prayers, our manpower. Everybody loves Texas. Everybody is helping. Everybody is praying.

Greenbelt, MD – Severe weather in the form of tornadoes is not something people expect on Christmas week but a storm system on December 23rd brought tornadoes to Mississippi, Georgia and Louisiana. As the storm moved, NASA’s RapidScat captured data on winds while NOAA’s GOES satellite tracked the movement of the system.
NASA’s RapidScat instrument flies aboard the International Space Station and captured a look at some of the high winds from the storms that brought severe weather to the U.S. Gulf Coast on December 23rd. In addition, an animation of images from NOAA’s GOES-East satellite showed the movement of those storms and other weather systems from Canada to South America from December 21st to 24th.
Pasadena, CA – A monster storm that erupted on Saturn in late 2010 – as large as any storm ever observed on the ringed planet — has already impressed researchers with its intensity and long-lived turbulence.
A new paper in the journal Icarus reveals another facet of the storm’s explosive power: its ability to churn up water ice from great depths. This finding, derived from near-infrared measurements by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, is the first detection at Saturn of water ice. The water originates from deep in Saturn’s atmosphere.

Pasadena, CA – Call it a Saturnian version of the Ouroboros, the mythical serpent that bites its own tail. In a new paper that provides the most detail yet about the life and death of a monstrous thunder-and-lightning storm on Saturn, scientists from NASA’s Cassini mission describe how the massive storm churned around the planet until it encountered its own tail and sputtered out.
It is the first time scientists have observed a storm consume itself in this way anywhere in the solar system.

Pasadena, CA – NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has tracked the aftermath of a rare massive storm on Saturn. Data reveal record-setting disturbances in the planet’s upper atmosphere long after the visible signs of the storm abated, in addition to an indication the storm was more forceful than scientists previously thought.
Data from Cassini’s composite infrared spectrometer (CIRS) instrument revealed the storm’s powerful discharge sent the temperature in Saturn’s stratosphere soaring 150 degrees Fahrenheit (83 kelvins) above normal.

Pasadena, CA – New images and animated movies from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft chronicle the birth and evolution of the colossal storm that ravaged the northern face of Saturn for nearly a year.
These new full-color mosaics and animations show the storm from its emergence as a tiny spot in a single image almost one year ago, on December 5th, 2010, through its subsequent growth into a storm so large it completely encircled the planet by late January 2011.
The monster tempest, which extended north-south approximately 9,000 miles (15,000 kilometers), is the largest seen on Saturn in the past two decades and is the largest by far ever observed on the planet from an interplanetary spacecraft.
Clarksville, TN – The L.E.A.P. ORG. not only operates by the 7 points of Leadership, Enlightenment, Academic Achievement, Perseverance, Outreach, Responsibility, and Growth, but also instills these attributes in the interns being mentored.
Daquan Orebo (17) and Ralphie Armstrong (12) participate in the LEAP lawn Care Service. Due to the severe storm resulting in several of the clients trees falling in the back yard with a host of limbs and branches scattered throughout the lawn, they were advised to just cut the front yard.
