PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME
700 AM EDT FRI APR 29 2016

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS DECLARED THE WEEK OF APRIL
25TH THROUGH 29TH, SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IN NEW
ENGLAND.  THIS IS THE LAST IN A SERIES OF FIVE PUBLIC
INFORMATION STATEMENTS ON VARIOUS TOPICS RELATED TO SEVERE
WEATHER AWARENESS.

...SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS - FLOODS AND FLASH FLOODS...

IN ADDITION TO LIGHTNING, HIGH WINDS, HAIL, AND TORNADOES,
SUMMERTIME THUNDERSTORMS ALSO BRING THE THREAT OF FLOODING
AND FLASH FLOODING TO NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND.  IN THE
SUMMERTIME, MOST FLASH FLOODS ARE CAUSED BY HEAVY, SLOWLY
MOVING THUNDERSTORMS WHICH CAN PRODUCE EXCESSIVE RAINFALL IN
AN AREA IN JUST A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.  IN ADDITION TO THE
RAINFALL, TOPOGRAPHY, SOIL CONDITIONS, AND GROUND COVER HELP
DETERMINE HOW MUCH OF THE RAINFALL SOAKS INTO THE GROUND AND
HOW MUCH OF THE RAINFALL RUNS OFF INTO STREAMS AND RIVERS.

LAST YEAR, ON AUGUST 18, 2.45 INCHES OF RAIN IN 45 MINUTES
AND CAUSED A FLASH FLOOD IN CONCORD, NH, AND A LARGE SINKHOLE
ON I-93 THAT CAUSED AN ESTIMATED $100,000 IN DAMAGE.  ON
SEPTEMBER 30, 4 TO 6 INCHES OF RAIN CAUSED A FLASH FLOOD IN
SKOWHEGAN RESULTING IN $300,000 IN DAMAGE.

NATIONWIDE, FLOODS AND FLASH FLOODS ARE THE GREATEST STORM-
RELATED KILLER, CLAIMING THE LIVES OF ABOUT 85 PEOPLE
ANNUALLY. SIMILAR TO THE REST OF THE NATION, FLOODS AND FLASH
FLOODS ARE THE NUMBER ONE STORM-RELATED KILLER IN NEW
ENGLAND.  IN ADDITION, FLOODS AND FLASH FLOODS ARE
RESPONSIBLE FOR A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE
PROPERTY DAMAGE.


NATIONALLY, MORE THAN HALF OF LAST YEAR`S FLOOD FATALITIES
WERE CAUSED BY PEOPLE ATTEMPTING TO DRIVE THROUGH FLOODED
AREAS.  OTHER FATALITIES WERE CAUSED PEOPLE ATTEMPTING TO
RUN, WALK, SWIM, OR JUST FELL INTO A FLOODED AREA.  AS LITTLE
AS 2 FEET OF WATER WILL FLOAT MOST CARS AND SMALL TRUCKS.  IF
YOUR VEHICLE BEGINS TO FLOAT, YOU LOSE COMPLETE CONTROL OVER
THE VEHICLE. IF YOUR VEHICLE STALLS IN A FLOODED ROADWAY,
ABANDON IT IMMEDIATELY AND SEEK HIGHER GROUND.  THE WATER MAY
SWEEP THE VEHICLE AND ITS OCCUPANTS AWAY.

DAM FAILURES CAN ALSO LEAD TO FLOODS OR FLASH FLOODS.  WHILE
NOT ALWAYS CAUSED BY THE WEATHER, DAM FAILURES CAN LEAD TO
EXTREMELY FAST RISES IN RIVER AND STREAM LEVELS.

HERE ARE SEVERAL FATAL FLOOD AND FLASH FLOOD EVENTS THAT
OCCURRED IN MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE SINCE 1996.

  MAR 13 1996  ALTON, NEW HAMPSHIRE - A CATASTROPHIC FAILURE
               OF AN EARTHEN DAM ON MEADOWS POND CAUSED A
               FLASH FLOOD DOWNSTREAM OF THE DAM.  A WOMEN
               WHO WAS TRYING TO FLEE THE FLOOD WATERS IN HER
               PICKUP TRUCK DROWNED AFTER HER VEHICLE WAS
               WASHED OFF THE ROADWAY AND INTO A RAVINE.

  JUL 13 1996  BRISTOL, NEW HAMPSHIRE - THREE TO FOUR INCHES
               OF RAIN FROM THE REMNANTS OF HURRICANE BERTHA
               CAUSED MANY SMALL RIVERS AND STREAMS TO FLOOD.
               A 10-YEAR OLD BOY PLAYING IN THE RAIN-SWOLLEN
               NEWFOUND RIVER WAS SWEPT TO HIS DEATH.

  OCT 21 1996  SCARBOROUGH, MAINE - FOUR TO 19 INCHES OF RAIN
               CAUSED VERY SERIOUS FLOODING IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
               AND WESTERN MAINE.  ONE MAN DROWNED WHEN HE
               DROVE HIS CAR INTO A FLOODED ROADWAY.  UNKNOWN
               TO THE MAN, THE ROAD HAD ALREADY BEEN WASHED
               AWAY.

  MAR 31 1998  FRANKLIN COUNTY, MAINE - SNOWMELT, CAUSED BY
               RECORD-BREAKING WARMTH, COMBINED WITH RECENT
               RAINFALL TO CAUSE MANY RIVERS AND STREAMS TO
               RISE.  ONE MAN DROWNED WHEN HE DROVE HIS TRUCK
               INTO A FLOODED ROADWAY.

  JUN 27 1998  BRIDGEWATER, NEW HAMPSHIRE - HEAVY, SLOW-
               MOVING THUNDERSTORMS CAUSED THE BAKER RIVER
               AND IT`S TRIBUTARIES TO RISE RAPIDLY.  ONE MAN
               DROWNED WHEN HE WAS SUCKED INTO A CULVERT
               WHILE ATTEMPTING TO CLEAR DEBRIS FROM THE
               CULVERT.  A SECOND MAN WAS INJURED.

  APR 16 2007  LEBANON, MAINE - A WOMAN AND HER 4-YEAR OLD
               GRANDDAUGHTER THAT SHE WAS CARRYING WERE SWEPT
               TO THEIR DEATH AS THEY ATTEMPTED TO CROSS A
               FLOODED ROADWAY ON FOOT.

  AUG 07 2008ASHLAND, NEW HAMPSHIRE - A 7-YEAR-OLD GIRL
               DROWNED WHEN A BRIDGE WASHED AWAY AS HER
               FAMILY TRIED TO DRIVE OUT OF A FLOODED
               CAMPGROUND.



TO ALERT THE PUBLIC TO THE THREAT OF FLOODING, THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE ISSUES FLOOD AND FLASH FLOOD WATCHES AND
WARNINGS.  A FLOOD WATCH INDICATES FLOODING/FLASH FLOODING IS
POSSIBLE, AND IS USUALLY ISSUED IN ANTICIPATION OF HEAVY
RAINFALL.  A FLOOD/FLASH FLOOD WARNING INDICATES THAT
FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR IS ALREADY OCCURRING.  IF YOU HEAR
THAT A FLOOD/FLASH FLOOD WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR YOUR
AREA, MOVE IMMEDIATELY TO HIGHER GROUND IF FLOOD WATERS
THREATEN.

HERE ARE SOME FLOOD/FLASH FLOOD FACTS AND SAFETY TIPS.

   *  NEVER DRIVE A CAR INTO A FLOODED ROADWAY.  MORE THAN
      HALF OF ALL FLASH FLOOD FATALITIES ARE VEHICLE RELATED.

   *  KEEP AWAY FROM STREAMS DURING HEAVY RAINFALL EVENTS.
      SWIFTLY MOVING WATER IS EXTREMELY POWERFUL AND CAN
      EASILY OVERPOWER A PERSON.

   *  KEEP CHILDREN INSIDE AND AWAY FROM FLOODED STREETS,
      CULVERTS, AND STREAMS.

   *  REPORT ANY FLOODING TO THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES.

   *  IF ADVISED TO EVACUATE, DO SO IMMEDIATELY.

   *  OBEY ALL ROAD BLOCKS AND BARRIERS, EVEN IF THE FLOODING
      HAS RECEDED.  FLOOD WATERS MAY HAVE UNDERCUT THE ROAD
      SURFACE OR LEFT DANGEROUS DEBRIS IN THE ROADWAY.

   *  IF YOU LIVE IN A FLOOD PRONE AREA, HAVE A PLAN IN CASE
      THE WATER STARTS RISING QUICKLY.

...SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CARIBOU, MAINE HAS DECLARED APRIL 25TH
THROUGH MAY 1ST AS SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK. EACH DAY DURING
THE PREPAREDNESS WEEK WILL FEATURE INFORMATION ABOUT A DIFFERENT
SEVERE WEATHER RELATED TOPIC.

NEW ENGLAND WILL QUICKLY TRANSITION FROM EARLY SPRING WEATHER TO
MORE SUMMER LIKE WEATHER PATTERNS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS. ALONG
WITH THE WARMER WEATHER COMES AN INCREASING THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS,
AND WITH IT COMES THE THREAT FOR SEVERE WEATHER.  ARE YOU PREPARED
FOR SEVERE WEATHER?  DO YOU KNOW WHERE AND HOW TO RECEIVE FORECASTS?
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO RECEIVE WARNINGS AND WATCHES FOR SEVERE WEATHER?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO DURING AND AFTER SEVERE WEATHER IMPACTS YOU?

...LIGHTNING AND FLOOD THREATS...

WHILE MUCH OF THE FOCUS DURING SEVERE WEATHER IS ON TORNADOES, WIND
AND HAIL; THERE ARE ACTUALLY MORE DEATHS CAUSED EACH YEAR BY
FLOODING AND LIGHTNING, WHICH ARE ALSO COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH
SEVERE WEATHER. IF YOU HEAR THUNDER OR SEE LIGHTNING, HEAD INSIDE
IMMEDIATELY! WHEN THUNDER ROARS GO INDOORS! HEAVY RAINFALL FROM
THUNDERSTORMS CAN QUICKLY CAUSE STREAMS, CREEKS, AND RIVERS TO
OVERRUN THEIR BANKS, AND CAUSE STREET FLOODING IN URBAN AND COUNTRY
SETTINGS. REMEMBER, IF YOU ENCOUNTER A FLOODED ROADWAY, DO NOT DRIVE
OR WALK INTO IT.  MORE THAN HALF OF OF ALL FLASH FLOODING FATALITIES
ARE VEHICLE RELATED AND ALMOST ALWAYS PREVENTABLE. TURN AROUND DON`T
DROWN!  IN ADDITION TO VEHICLE FLOODING, SWOLLEN RIVERS AND STREAMS
HAVE VERY STRONG CURRENTS THAT CAN EASILY OVERPOWER A PERSON. DON`T
GET TOO CLOSE AND PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO YOUR CHILDEN AND PETS.

PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME
700 AM EDT THU APRIL 28 2016

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS DECLARED THE WEEK OF APRIL
25TH THROUGH 29TH, SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IN NEW
ENGLAND. THIS IS THE FOURTH IN A SERIES OF FIVE PUBLIC
INFORMATION STATEMENTS ON VARIOUS TOPICS RELATED TO SEVERE
WEATHER AWARENESS.


...SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS - TORNADOES...

TORNADOES ARE NATURE`S MOST VIOLENT STORM.  BY DEFINITION, A
TORNADO IS A VIOLENTLY ROTATING COLUMN OF AIR THAT EXTENDS
FROM THE BASE OF THE THUNDERSTORM CLOUD TO THE GROUND.

IN ADDITION TO THE THREE BASIC INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THE
FORMATION OF THUNDERSTORMS AND SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS (LOW-
LEVEL MOISTURE, AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE, AND A SOURCE OF
LIFT), WINDS AT VARIOUS LEVELS IN THE ATMOSPHERE FACTOR INTO
THE DEVELOPMENT OF TORNADOES.

USUALLY, PRIOR TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TORNADO, A PRE-
TORNADIC THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPS A CIRCULATION, THAT IS, IT
STARTS ROTATING (A MESO-CYCLONE).  AS THIS ROTATION BECOMES
STRONGER, THE CHANCE THAT A TORNADO MAY DEVELOP ALSO
INCREASES.  ALTHOUGH THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE`S DOPPLER
RADAR GENERALLY CAN NOT SEE THE ACTUAL TORNADO, THE RADAR
DOES DETECT ROTATION OF THE THUNDERSTORM CLOUD, AND THEREBY
GIVES SOME INDICATION OF THE POSSIBILITY THAT A TORNADO MAY
BE FORMING OR HAS FORMED.

THE SCALE USED TO MEASURE TORNADO DAMAGE IS THE ENHANCED
FUJITA SCALE (NAMED AFTER THEODORE FUJITA, A FAMOUS TORNADO
DAMAGE EXPERT).  THIS SCALE IS COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS THE E-
F SCALE.  BASED ON SCIENTIFIC STUDIES OF TORNADO DAMAGE, THE
ORIGINAL FUJITA SCALE WAS MODIFIED AND THE NEW "ENHANCED
FUJITA SCALE" WAS OFFICIALLY IMPLEMENTED IN 2007.

  EF-0 - LIGHT DAMAGE (WINDS 65 TO 85 MPH)
  EF-1 - MODERATE DAMAGE (WINDS 86 TO 110 MPH)
  EF-2 - CONSIDERABLE DAMAGE (WINDS 111 TO 135 MPH)
  EF-3 - SEVERE DAMAGE (WINDS 136 TO 165 MPH)
  EF-4 - DEVASTATING DAMAGE (WINDS 166 TO 200 MPH)
  EF-5 - INCREDIBLE DAMAGE (WINDS OVER 200 MPH)

PEAK TORNADO ACTIVITY IN NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND OCCURS BETWEEN
JUNE AND AUGUST, BUT TORNADOES HAVE OCCURRED AS EARLY AS MAY
AND AS LATE AS NOVEMBER.  MOST TORNADOES OCCUR BETWEEN 3 AND
9 PM AND HAVE AN AVERAGE FORWARD SPEED OF ABOUT 30 MPH.  FOR
THE 40 YEAR PERIOD BETWEEN 1950 AND 1990, 74 TORNADOES
OCCURRED IN MAINE WHILE 68 TORNADOES OCCURRED IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE.  BASED ON THESE DATA, EACH STATE HAD AVERAGED
ABOUT TWO TORNADOES PER YEAR.  DURING THIS PERIOD, THE
AVERAGE PATH LENGTH OF THE TORNADOES WAS 1.08 MILES FOR MAINE
AND 1.64 MILES FOR NEW HAMPSHIRE.  THE STRONGEST TORNADO
OBSERVED IN MAINE WAS AN F2, WHILE THE STRONGEST TORNADO
OBSERVED IN NEW HAMPSHIRE WAS AN F3.

DURING 2015, THERE WAS ONE TORNADO RECORDED IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
AND NONE IN MAINE.

TO ALERT THE PUBLIC TO THE THREAT OF TORNADOES, THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE ISSUES TORNADO WATCHES AND WARNINGS.  A
TORNADO WATCH INDICATES THAT ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE
FAVORABLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF TORNADOES.  A TORNADO
WARNING INDICATES THAT A TORNADO IS IMMINENT OR IS ALREADY
OCCURRING.  IF YOU HEAR THAT A TORNADO WARNING HAS BEEN
ISSUED FOR YOUR AREA, SEEK SAFE SHELTER IMMEDIATELY IF YOU
ARE IN THE PATH OF THE STORM.

DUE TO THE USUAL SHORT LIFE-SPAN OF TORNADOES IN NORTHERN NEW
ENGLAND, THERE IS OFTEN LITTLE, IF ANY, ADVANCE WARNING.
TORNADOES IN NEW ENGLAND GENERALLY TOUCH DOWN AND THEN LIFT
OFF THE GROUND VERY QUICKLY.  MANY OF THE TORNADOES THAT HAVE
OCCURRED IN THE PAST, HAVE OCCURRED WHILE SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
WARNINGS HAVE BEEN IN EFFECT.  IF YOU HEAR THAT A SEVERE
THUNDERSTORM WARNING IS IN EFFECT FOR YOUR AREA, BE ALERT FOR
THE POSSIBILITY OF A TORNADO.  A LOW ROTATING CLOUD, LARGE
HAIL, AND/OR A LOAD ROAR ARE ALL SIGNS THAT MAY PRECEDE THE
TOUCHDOWN OF A TORNADO.

HERE ARE SOME TORNADO FACTS AND SAFETY TIPS.

   *  FLYING DEBRIS CAUSES MOST DEATHS AND INJURIES IN
      TORNADOES

   *  THE SAFEST PLACE IN YOUR HOME DURING A TORNADO IS YOUR
      BASEMENT.

   *  STAY AWAY FROM WINDOWS.

   *  GET OUT OF VEHICLES OR MOBILE HOMES, THEY OFFER LITTLE
      PROTECTION.  SEEK SHELTER IN A SUBSTANTIAL BUILDING.

   *  DO NOT SEEK SHELTER UNDER A BRIDGE OVERPASS.  BRIDGE
      OVERPASSES OFFER LITTLE, IF ANY, PROTECTION FROM WIND-
      DRIVEN DEBRIS.


HERE IS A LIST OF THE REMAINING TOPICS THAT WILL BE COVERED
IN PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENTS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE THIS WEEK.

...SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CARIBOU, MAINE HAS DECLARED APRIL 25TH
THROUGH MAY 1ST AS SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK. EACH DAY DURING
THE PREPAREDNESS WEEK WILL FEATURE INFORMATION ABOUT A DIFFERENT
SEVERE WEATHER RELATED TOPIC.

NEW ENGLAND WILL QUICKLY TRANSITION FROM EARLY SPRING WEATHER TO
MORE SUMMER LIKE WEATHER PATTERNS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS. ALONG
WITH THE WARMER WEATHER COMES AN INCREASING THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS,
AND WITH IT COMES THE THREAT FOR SEVERE WEATHER.  ARE YOU PREPARED
FOR SEVERE WEATHER?  DO YOU KNOW WHERE AND HOW TO RECEIVE FORECASTS?
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO RECEIVE WARNINGS AND WATCHES FOR SEVERE WEATHER?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO DURING AND AFTER SEVERE WEATHER IMPACTS YOU?

...KNOW WHAT TO DO BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER A TORNADO OR SEVERE
THUNDERSTORM...

KNOWING WHAT TO DO BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER A TORNADO OR SEVERE
THUNDERSTORM COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE. HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

BEFORE:
-  PICK A SAFE ROOM IN YOUR HOME SUCH AS A BASEMENT, STORM CELLAR OR
   AN INTERIOR ROOM ON THE LOWEST FLOOR WITH NO WINDOWS.
-  MAKE SURE ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY KNOW WHERE TO GO.
-  STORE EMERGENCY SUPPLIES SUCH AS A FIRST-AID KIT AND FLASHLIGHTS
   WITH EXTRA BATTERIES ARE STORED THERE IN CASE YOU NEED THEM.
-  PUT TOGETHER A FAMILY COMMUNICATIONS PLAN.
-  YOU SHOULD ALSO IDENTIFY A SAFE LOCATION AT WORK OR SCHOOL.

DURING:
-  WHEN A TORNADO OR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING IS ISSUED, YOU
   SHOULD IMMEDIATELY GO TO A SAFE ROOM.
-  IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE, YOU NEED TO SEEK SHELTER INSIDE A STURDY
   BUILDING.
-  MOBILE HOMES ARE NEVER SAFE DURING A TORNADO. IF YOU ARE IN A
MOBILE HOME OR A RECREATIONAL VEHICLE, YOU SHOULD HEAD FOR A STORM
SHELTER.
-  IF YOU CANNOT QUICKLY WALK TO A SHELTER IMMEDIATELY GET INTO A
VEHICLE, BUCKLE YOUR SEAT BELT AND TRY TO DRIVE TO THE CLOSEST
STURDY SHELTER.
AFTER:
-  IF YOU ARE IN AN AREA THAT WAS DAMAGED, BE CAREFUL OF DEBRIS THAT
MAY INCLUDE SHARP OR DANGEROUS OBJECTS AND WATCH OUT FOR DOWNED
POWER LINES AND BROKEN GAS LINES.
-  USE BATTERY-POWERED FLASHLIGHTS WHEN EXAMINING BUILDINGS. DO NOT
USE CANDLES WHICH COULD START A FIRE.
-  IF YOU SMELL GAS OR HEAR A BLOWING OR HISSING NOISE, OPEN A
WINDOW AND GET EVERYONE OUT OF THE BUILDING QUICKLY AND THEN CALL
THE GAS COMPANY OR FIRE DEPARTMENT.
-  USE THE TELEPHONE ONLY FOR EMERGENCY CALLS SO RESCUE OPERATION
LINES AREN`T TIED UP. TEXT YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO LET THEM KNOW
YOU ARE OK.
-  IF YOU WERE OUTSIDE OF THE AREA DAMAGED BY THE TORNADO, STAY OFF
THE PHONE SO THAT EMERGENCY CALLS CAN GET THROUGH. USE TEXT MESSAGES
AND SOCIAL MEDIA TO LET YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY KNOW YOU ARE OK.
-  STAY AWAY FROM AREAS THAT WERE DAMAGED SO YOU DO NOT HAMPER
RESCUE OPERATIONS. ONLY RETURN TO AREAS THAT WERE DAMAGED WHEN LOCAL
LAW ENFORCEMENT GIVES THE ALL-CLEAR.

PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME
730 AM EDT WED APR 27 2016

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS DECLARED THE WEEK OF APRIL
25TH  THROUGH 29TH, SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IN NEW
ENGLAND.  THIS IS THE THIRD IN A SERIES OF FIVE PUBLIC
INFORMATION STATEMENTS ON VARIOUS TOPICS RELATED TO SEVERE
WEATHER AWARENESS.


...SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS - SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS -
DOWNBURSTS, MICROBURSTS, MESO-CYCLONES, AND HAIL...

BY DEFINITION, A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM IS ONE WHICH PRODUCES
WIND GUSTS OF 58 MPH OR MORE, OR HAIL 1 INCH IN DIAMETER OR
GREATER. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CAN ALSO PRODUCE TORNADOES.

IN NEW ENGLAND, SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE NOT UNCOMMON
DURING THE SUMMER.  EVERY YEAR, THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE GETS NUMEROUS REPORTS OF WIND AND HAIL DAMAGE
THROUGHOUT MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE.  SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
WINDS DOWN TREES AND BRANCHES ONTO HOMES, BUILDINGS,
VEHICLES, AND POWER LINES.  SCATTERED POWER OUTAGES ARE
OFTEN THE RESULT OF LIGHTNING OR WIND-FALLEN TREES AND
BRANCHES.  ALSO, WIND-DRIVEN HAIL FROM THUNDERSTORMS
FLATTENS AND/OR DAMAGES CROPS IN THE STATES.  ON RARE
OCCASIONS, LARGE HAILSTONES DAMAGE HOMES, BUILDINGS, AND
VEHICLES.  IN ADDITION TO THE LIGHTNING, FALLING TREES AND
LARGE HAIL ALSO POSE A SIGNIFICANT THREAT TO PEOPLE, AS
WELL.


THUNDERSTORM WINDS, DOWNDRAFTS, DOWNBURSTS, AND MICROBURSTS

DURING THE DEVELOPMENT OF A THUNDERSTORM, WARM AIR RISES
UPWARD IN THE ATMOSPHERE (AN UPDRAFT) CAUSING THE FORMATION
OF CLOUDS AND PRECIPITATION.  AS A THUNDERSTORM MATURES,
COOL, PRECIPITATION-LADEN AIR SINKS DOWNWARD THROUGH THE
ATMOSPHERE (A DOWNDRAFT).  WHEN A DOWNDRAFT REACHES THE
GROUND IT SPREADS OUT CAUSING THE COOL, GUSTY WIND THAT
OFTEN ACCOMPANIES A THUNDERSTORM.

IN SOME THUNDERSTORMS, INTENSE DOWNDRAFTS DEVELOP.  WHEN
THESE DOWNDRAFTS REACH THE GROUND, THEY SPREAD OUT VERY
QUICKLY CAUSING STRONG AND OFTEN DAMAGING WINDS AT THE
GROUND.  THESE INTENSE DOWNDRAFTS ARE CALLED DOWNBURSTS AND
CAN CAUSE SIGNIFICANT WIND DAMAGE OVER LARGE AREAS.  IN THE
CASE OF DOWNBURSTS, THE DAMAGE IS GENERALLY REFERRED TO AS
STRAIGHT-LINE WIND DAMAGE SINCE FALLEN TREES GENERALLY LINE
UP IN THE SAME DIRECTION.  IN MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE, MOST
THUNDERSTORM WIND DAMAGE IS CAUSED BY DOWNBURSTS.

A SPECIAL TYPE OF DOWNBURST IS THE MICROBURST.  MICROBURSTS
GET THEIR NAME BECAUSE THEY GENERALLY AFFECT A MUCH SMALLER
GEOGRAPHICAL AREA, BUT THE WINDS IN A MICROBURST CAN BE
VERY INTENSE.  LIKE THE GENERAL DOWNBURST, MOST OF THE
DAMAGE WITH MICROBURSTS LINES UP IN ONE DIRECTION,
ALTHOUGH, THERE MAY BE A TENDENCY FOR THE DAMAGE TO RADIATE
OUTWARD.  MICROBURSTS ARE USUALLY ACCOMPANIED BY HEAVY RAIN
AND/OR HAIL AND CAN HAVE WINDS AS STRONG AS THOSE IN A
SMALL TORNADO.

UNDER CERTAIN ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS, THUNDERSTORMS CAN
BEGIN TO DEVELOP A CIRCULATION WITHIN THE THUNDERSTORM
CLOUD.  THESE STORMS ARE OFTEN CALLED MESO-CYCLONES BECAUSE
OF THE COUNTER-CLOCKWISE CIRCULATION THAT DEVELOPS WITHIN
THE STORM.  THE UPDRAFTS AND DOWNDRAFTS IN THESE STORMS CAN
PERSIST FOR HOURS AS THE STORM MOVES ALONG ITS PATH.
SEVERE WINDS AND HAIL ARE ALSO MORE LIKELY WITH MESO-
CYCLONES, AND IF THE ROTATION WITHIN THE STORM BECOMES MORE
INTENSE, THERE IS AN INCREASING POSSIBILITY THAT THE STORM
MIGHT PRODUCE A TORNADO.  NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER
RADAR ALLOWS METEOROLOGISTS TO MONITOR AIR MOVEMENT WITHIN
THESE STORMS AND TO SEE THE DEVELOPMENT AND STRENGTH OF ANY
CIRCULATION WITHIN THE STORM.


HAIL

THE CIRCULATION THAT ACCOMPANIES A MESO-CYCLONE IS ALSO A
FACTOR IN HAIL FORMATION.  HAIL INITIALLY FORMS WHEN LIQUID
WATER DROPLETS ARE CARRIED UPWARD BY THE UPDRAFT TO A LEVEL
WHERE THE DROPLETS FREEZE.  EVENTUALLY, THE SMALL HAIL
STONE MAY BEGIN TO FALL DOWNWARD, ONLY TO BE CAUGHT ONCE
AGAIN BY THE PERSISTENT UPDRAFT OF A MESO-CYCLONE.  EACH
TIME THE HAILSTONE GOES THROUGH THIS PROCESS, IT GETS
LARGER AND HEAVIER.  EVENTUALLY, THE HAILSTONE WILL BE
BLOWN AWAY FROM THE UPDRAFT OR WILL BECOME TOO HEAVY FOR
THE UPDRAFT TO SUPPORT AND THE HAILSTONE WILL FALL TO THE
GROUND.

IN MAINE AND NEW HAMPSHIRE, HAIL IS FAIRLY COMMON DURING
WELL- DEVELOPED SUMMERTIME THUNDERSTORMS.  ALTHOUGH MOST
HAIL THAT REACHES THE GROUND IN NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND IS AN
INCH OR LESS IN DIAMETER, OCCASIONALLY HAILSTONES OVER 2
INCHES IN DIAMETER WILL FALL.  LARGE HAILSTONES CAN FALL AT
SPEEDS FASTER THAN 100 MPH AND CAN DO CONSIDERABLE DAMAGE
TO CARS, HOMES, AND BUILDINGS, AND CAN BE A SIGNIFICANT
THREAT TO PEOPLE, AS WELL.

DURING 2015 IN MAINE, THE MOST SIGNIFICANT HAIL REPORTS
WERE 2.75 INCHES IN NORTH BERWICK AND 2.5 INCHES IN
WATERBORO. IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, THE MOST SIGNIFICANT REPORT
WAS 2.50 INCHES IN ROCHESTER.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE LARGER HAILSTONES REPORTED IN MAINE
AND NEW HAMPSHIRE SINCE 1995.

     SEP 12 2013  UPTON, MAINE
     JUL  3 2014  STATHAM, NEW HAMPSHIRE

FOR BOTH SEVERE WINDS (58 MPH OR GREATER) AND LARGE HAIL (1
INCH OR GREATER IN DIAMETER), THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
ISSUES SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCHES AND WARNINGS.  A WATCH
INDICATES THAT THE ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR
SEVERE WEATHER TO DEVELOP.  A WARNING INDICATES THAT SEVERE
WEATHER IS IMMINENT OR IS ALREADY OCCURRING.  IF YOU HEAR A
WARNING FOR YOUR AREA, BE PREPARED TO SEEK A SAFE SHELTER
IF YOU ARE IN THE PATH OF THE STORM.

HERE IS A LIST OF THE OTHER TOPICS THAT WILL BE COVERED IN
PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENTS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE THIS WEEK.
