Restoring grid power to New Orleans may take months.



Transmission tower collapse in Avondale; will take four days to assess damage
Aug 30, 2021
WWLTV


Getting the power back on is proving to be a difficult task, with a collapse in Avondale.

Excellent nutshell review of the failure of all eight feeder points from the regional grid to New Orleans and all points south and about potential temporary measures to create an isolated system for critical services.

This video covers just one of those eight feeder points. As the YouTube headline stated, it will require at least four days just for a damage assessment.

This suggests the city will essentially be shut down for many weeks and this affects refineries, other chemical plants and offshore petrochemical services along with the seafood industry south of the city.

Vice President Kamala Harris begins Southeast Asia tour



Aug 22, 2021
CBS News

Vice President Kamala Harris kicked off her trip to Southeast Asia on Sunday. The tour is seen as an effort to counter China's influence in the region, but comes amid the U.S.'s chaotic exit from Afghanistan. CBSN contributor Isaac Stone Fish joins Lana Zak to discuss the importance of Harris' trip.

I feel our Vice President does not get the public exposure and recognition she deserves. Perhaps this trip will help.

Massive, powerful earthquake storm near South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands

See: https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/?currentFeatureId=us6000f4mr&extent=-66.96448,-406.58203&extent=-48.40003,-364.39453&listOnlyShown=true&baseLayer=terrain

I scan the USGS earthquake page each day a part of my weather review and in the years I've been observing, never seen a swarm this powerful and sustained. Would not want to be existing in that area and shudder to think what this would do in a highly populated zone.

From Wikipedia:

South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (SGSSI) is a British Overseas Territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean. It is a remote and inhospitable collection of islands, consisting of South Georgia Island and a chain of smaller islands known as the South Sandwich Islands. South Georgia is 165 kilometres (103 mi) long and 35 kilometres (22 mi) wide and is by far the largest island in the territory. The South Sandwich Islands lie about 700 kilometres (430 mi) southeast of South Georgia. The territory's total land area is 3,903 km2 (1,507 sq mi). The Falkland Islands are about 1,300 kilometres (810 mi) west from its nearest point.

No permanent native population lives in the South Sandwich Islands, and a very small non-permanent population resides on South Georgia. There are no scheduled passenger flights or ferries to or from the territory, although visits by cruise liners to South Georgia are increasingly popular, with several thousand visitors each summer.

The real heartbreaker is that many are moms and dads.

Numerous children left to explain mom or dad's most notable accomplishment as "insurrectionist" and "jailbird".
