New Mexico: 2 wildfires have combined as fires also rage in Arizona and Nebraska

New Mexico: 2 wildfires have combined as fires also rage in Arizona and Nebraska | Coastal Restoration | Scoop.it
Wildfires continue to burn across the Southwest with two blazes in New Mexico merging to form a perimeter of more than 180 miles Sunday, according to firefighters.
Samuel Ponce's insight:
Wildfires are burning across three states from the South-west region. Fortunately, New Mexico will be expecting snow soon and low winds a week afterward. A retired fire chief is the only recorded death due to the wildfires so far. Evacuations are in affect for specific zoning ordinances vulnerable to wildfires. The posting time frame of this article confirmed the overall fire is 12% contained.
Holly Jones's comment, April 26, 4:11 PM
Wind driven fires move so incredibly fast, I feel as though we have had a very windy winter.
Gizelle K Monicco's comment, April 26, 7:00 PM
With the very warm days we are currently getting in California, it makes me think more about our likely chances of experiencing more wildfires during these very hot and dry weather conditions.
Charlene Williams's comment, April 29, 8:03 PM
With temperatures beginning to rise and having drier climate conditions there is a chance that more wildfires will be happening here

Empty description
Em Richter's insight:
As disasters have increased across the entire US, Texas has experienced most of them. The state leads with 137 significant natural disasters. Illinois follows second with only 96. In the last 20 years disasters cost the state $250 billion.
AlexisPalomares's comment, May 5, 1:33 AM
Unfortunately with global warming worsening, this is becoming a new normal for the United States. As weather becomes more intense and disasters evolve to occur more frequently, we must learn to adapt to these changes. Texas is prone to several different disasters.

Clusters of Weather Extremes Will Increase Risks to Corn Crops, Society –

Clusters of Weather Extremes Will Increase Risks to Corn Crops, Society – | Coastal Restoration | Scoop.it
To assess how climate warming will change risks such as crop failures and wildfires, it’s necessary to look at how the risks are likely to interact.
Megan McBee's insight:
“By the year 2100, increases in heat waves, drought, and excessive rainfall combined will double the risk of climate-related failures of corn harvests in at least three of the world’s six major corn-growing regions in the same year”
Max Gomez's comment, May 4, 5:32 PM
I recall that in the sustainability class we talked about the importance, rather the abundance, and impact corn has on the US; its in everything. I'm curious to see how this will ultimately affect the system that was built around this crop. Will we be able to adapt to the new changes or simple crumble under it.
Em Richter's comment, May 4, 11:49 PM
With the stress on corn I wonder what effect this will have on the US livestock. The demand for meat is increasing but climate will definitely pose as a challenge to the growing market. I had considered the heat stress and land stress associated with livestock farming but not so much the stress on the fodder.
Eloisa Garcia's comment, May 6, 7:51 PM
With the continued progression of climate change, we will continue to see these impacts to many farming and different agricultural settings.

‘Disaster’s in the recovery’: bushfire survivors still waiting for homes | Bushfires | The Guardian | Coastal Restoration | Scoop.it
Two years on, many residents are still in temporary housing and left to fend for themselves in a ‘worse position’ than they started
Holly Jones's insight:
Although this bush fire disaster happened two years ago, there are still hundreds of displaced people, animals, and families. This had to do with our topic and assignment last week of people being displaced from environmental disasters. Rebuilding and reestablishing after a disaster proves to be a difficult and time consuming task. 
John Bliss's comment, May 3, 12:29 PM
Interesting to see the difficulties in recovering and rebuilding when government doesn’t properly assist those impacted. Shows how problematic it can be to deal with getting temporary housing and labor and supplies to rebuild.
Gizelle K Monicco's comment, May 3, 3:26 PM
I think this is a perfect example of when we talking about restoration after disasters, because we can see that it can take several years in order for an area of for victims to see improvement to their homes and lifestyles that were destroyed or changed because of a disaster.

Flash floods are set to become much more common in the U.S. • | Coastal Restoration | Scoop.it
A warming climate will lead to many impacts, such as a change in the frequency of flash flooding events, and the areas in which they occur
Jorge Avalos Avalos's insight:
Article mentions how new study found that flash floods will become more common to the U.S. and measures on how to stop it will be very difficult or impossible. 
Samuel Ponce's comment, May 3, 1:02 AM
"The central U.S. is emerging as a new flash flood hotspot as well, with an 8.6% predicted increase." This data piece alone supports the notion in which climate change continues to impact displaced civilians across the central U.S. region. Fortunately, the central US is flat and consist of plain fields with very little mountain regions which can potentially enable mudslides. Nonetheless, each region across the U.S. will continue to face different climate change variables.
Holly Jones's comment, May 3, 8:31 AM
Great article find Jorge, like Samuel mentioned already, and alike to what we discussed last week in class it will be interesting and also incredibly sad to see how many people are displaced from these flash flood events and if they cannot return, where they plan to go.
Megan McBee's comment, May 4, 1:57 PM
It was mentioned how difficult it will be to prevent floods like this, so when it does happen the likely hood being able to rebuild their homes in the same place is very unlikely. This will probably lead to some migration out of that area.

The article mentions the phoenix plate moving under the Antarctic plate and in doing so its causing a cracking of sorts that is producing additional faults zones & rift along its path. I'm assuming that within the context of the Pacific & North American plate, passing by each other, we also get the same network of faults that surround the larger San Andreas fault from this type of motion.

AccuWeather meteorologists expect outbreaks of severe weather to occur daily as a volatile weather pattern remains in place across the United States this week, putting hard-hit areas of the Plains at risk again for damaging thunderstorms and tornadoes that will pose a threat to life and property. The end of April and beginning of May have featured a multitude of severe weather reports across the middle of the nation, including a destructive tornado near Wichita, Kansas, pelting hail in Nebraska
Margaret Brown's insight:
The region is expected to be hit with major storms and tornados. The drought affected areas are worried that although the water is needed, they may receive rain too quickly and cause flooding.
Samuel Ponce's comment, May 5, 2:57 AM
Each state will be faced with a different type of disaster created by the severe weather. Fortunately, some states have different types of ecosystems and topography which can either further be impacted or resistant. For example, heavy rains in a state predominantly plain won't have too much to worry about mudslides but only flooding.

Fire crews prepare for dry thunderstorms, erratic winds | AP News

Fire crews prepare for dry thunderstorms, erratic winds | AP News | Coastal Restoration | Scoop.it
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — From the Southwestern U.S. to the southern High Plains, forecasters are warning that more strong winds and low humidity will challenge fire crews over the coming days. More strong winds and low humidity levels are on tap for the coming days, prompting firefighters in drought-stricken New Mexico to cut away brush and burn out any extra fuel Wednesday in an effort to keep the flames of what has become the largest wildfire burning in the U.S.
Em Richter's insight:
The American Southwest is on track for breaking the 10 year average of acreage burned in wildfires this year. There has been less precipitation than average with warmer projected temperatures. Specifically in New Mexico, there is concern that thunderstorms with no additional precipitation will cause more fire risk. Intense winds are also likely to spread fire further and faster.
Jorge Avalos Avalos's comment, April 27, 5:06 PM
It's so devastating that these dry areas are becoming dryer and the climate conditions are not favorable. These conditions seem more and more common for a lot of these places.
Samuel Ponce's comment, April 29, 7:57 PM
It's interesting yet horrifying knowing wind can contribute to the chaos during a wildfire season. High winds can create many other problems but combined with wildfire can expand a burning area by a 'lot. Now imagine that in an ecosystem that is common to have dry grass which is flammable.

The UN’s annual report on mitigating calamities shows that a radical rethink is needed to protect those who suffer most
Jack Rausch's insight:
The article mentions we have experienced up to 500 disasters a year for the past 2 decades. By 2030, that number could rise to 560 disasters per year. Climate-driven disasters seem to increase in intensity and frequency over time. Moving forward, it is important to think about how these storms will impact communities around the globe.
Dillan Roseman's comment, April 27, 3:10 PM
This is interesting because It seems like disasters always fall back on human induced climate change but i'm curious of other factors that might be at play

With the obvious increasing rates of sea-level rise, it brings danger to the low-lying coastal areas like serious flood losses, and expected extreme sea level events in the future.
