Hurricanes and Travel

Logo-H

Hurricane’s are powerful storms that leave a path of destruction with strong rotating winds and torrential rains. These massive storms form over large bodies of water and move toward land.

These storms happen worldwide; they are called typhoons in the North Pacific Ocean; around Australia, they are called cyclones with wind blowing counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale is from 1-5. Category 4 leaves extreme damage with winds between 131 – 155 mph, and 5 leaves catastrophic damage with sustained winds greater than 155 mph. The combination of the storm surge, battering waves, and high winds is deadly. “The price you may pay for not evacuating is your life.” Hubert Minnis, Bahamas

Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale

Each year, many parts of the United States experience tropical storms and hurricanes. A major problem in the United States is that shorelines attract large numbers of people from Maine to Texas, and people’s perception of risk has become complacent with delayed actions because weaker storms have resulted in a false impression of a hurricane’s damage potential.  It has been 12 years since Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Louisiana/Mississippi border on August 29, 2005, as a Category 3 which produced the highest storm surge ever recorded in the United States.

Even though hurricanes form in the Pacific Ocean, these storms almost never reach the Western Coast of the United States. There are two main reasons for this disparity; one of which is hurricanes tend to move toward the west-northwest; therefore, the movement carries the storm away from the West Coast. The second factor is the difference in water temperatures along the East and West coasts. The East Coast provides a source of warm water which is fuel for hurricanes. The West Coast has cooler temperatures which does not provide enough thermal energy to sustain a hurricane’s strength.

The frequency and intensity of Caribbean storms vary greatly from year to year; the odds of your vacation being disrupted by weather remain quite low.  According to Weather Underground in their hurricane archive, the most hurricanes that have ever happened in one year in the Atlantic since 1950 was 15 in 2005, and the least in one year was 2.

Hurricane Harvey Texas
I-10 between Houston and Beaumont, Texas during Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey in 2017, a Category 4 major hurricane, left Southeast Texas in a state of catastrophic flooding.  It was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since 2005, and Harvey holds the wettest storm on record in the contiguous United States with up to 50 inches of rain in some areas including Houston — more rainfall than Houston receives in a year.

Hurricane Harvey Rockport Texas

Harvey made landfall near Rockport, Texas, at peak intensity. FEMA director, Brock Long, called Harvey the worst disaster in Texas history.

Hurricane Harvey with Pet Rescue

Pets are now included in disaster plans resulting from lessons learned during Hurricane Katrina which helped save pets from flooding in Texas during Hurricane Harvey. During the devastation of Katrina, many residents stayed and some died rather than heed rescuers’ instructions to leave pets behind as waters inundated homes.

Hurricane Harvey with Pet Rescue
The lives of humans and animals in our communities are intertwined.

Hurricane is a Caribbean Indian word for “evil spirit and big wind. Native Americans called these storms Hurakons, after “a great spirit who commanded the east wind.”

Hurricane Irma Satellite Image NASA

Within days of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma developed. Irma, the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane in recorded history, made its first landfall in the islands of the northeast Caribbean. The hurricane is sweeping across the Caribbean and leaving destruction in its wake with rising tide levels rise and wave surges that could cover an entire island. Officials warn people to seek protection from the hurricane’s onslaught and closed with “May God protect us all.”

Hurricane Irma Puerto Rico

Mark Brantley, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Nevis and St. Kitts described the moments before the storm, “It is pitch black outside, but the furious rain and the howling winds make a frightening symphony.” Thankfully, Nevis was spared the worst, but they are still assessing.

Nevis Caribbean Island Four Seasons
Nevis, a beautiful Caribbean Island

However, the the two-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda was not as fortunate.  As Irma hit the Caribbean, winds of 185 mph sounded like a “freight train.” The tiny island of Barbuda was turned to ruins with more than 90 percent of buildings damaged and barely habitable. The airport on Barbuda was also destroyed, which means that Antigua will be used as a hub, with aid being brought across to Barbuda by boat and helicopter.

Emergency Information

Geographical issues and emergencies may differ, but having a basic survival kit to be ready at a moment’s notice is very important in crisis situations.  Items to include in Disaster Supply Kits:

  • Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least 3 days for drinking and sanitation
  • Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food items; Baby products, Pet food, Mess kits, Manual can opener
  • Battery-powered radio, Battery-powered fan/heater
  • Portable lighting, Flashlight, Batteries, Candles, Matches in a water-proof container
  • Whistle to signal emergency crews for help
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Cell phone with chargers, Walkie-talkie
  • Hatchet, Hammer, Wrench, Pliers, Scissors, Duct tape
  • First Aid Kit, Prescription medications, and Non-prescription medications such as pain relievers
  • Glasses, Contact lens and solution
  • Feminine supplies, Personal hygiene items, Plastic Bags
  • Bleach; When diluted, 9 parts water to 1 part bleach, can be used as a disinfectant; 16 drops per gallon of water can be used to treat the water in an emergency according to FEMA.
  • Change of clothing, gloves, coat, and sturdy shoes
  • Blanket for each person
  • Paper, pencil, colors, books, puzzles
  • Cash, Important documents such as copy of Insurance Policy and Social Security Cards in a waterproof container

Hurricanes’ names are established by an international committee of the United Nations World Meteorological Organization. Every six years, the list of names begins again. For example, the 2017 list will be used again in 2023. 2017 Tropical Storm and Hurricane Names: Arlene, Bret, Cindy, Don, Emily, Franklin, Gert, Harvey, Irma, Jose, Katia, Lee, Maria, Nate, Ophelia, Philippe, Rina, Sean, Tammy, Vince, and Whitney.

Atlantic Hurricane Names by Year

The names of especially destructive hurricanes are usually retired.

Retired Atlantic Hurricane Names by Year

When making travel arrangements, the Atlantic basin hurricane season runs from June to November with September being a peak month. The Atlantic basin includes the entire Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico. You may be able to secure reduced rates with fewer crowds in this low season so it may be worth it to take the chance. Statistically, there is a very low risk that a hurricane will impact your vacation. The ABC islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao are historically less likely than other Caribbean islands to be hit by a hurricane.

If you are planning a vacation during hurricane season, stay abreast of weather conditions. Thanks to satellite technology, no hurricane goes unnoticed. They are even equipped with sensors to pinpoint the center, or eye, of a storm.When traveling to destinations where a storm is predicted, travelers can often re-book their travel without any change fee. Purchasing travel insurance is highly recommended.  The majority of travel insurance with trip cancellation and trip interruption coverage will reimburse your pre-paid, non-refundable expenses lost as a result of canceling a trip or ending a trip prematurely due to severe weather.

Hurricane Harvey Texas

In the words of Diane Ackerman, “Hurricane season brings a humbling reminder that, despite our technologies, most of nature remains unpredictable.” As you take adventures, listen to weather alerts, heed travel advisories, and take precautionary measures!

Hurricane Harvey Texas Wedding

Amidst the tragedy, many heartwarming stories have emerged such as this beautiful love story.  Chris and Shelley Holland were flooded in due to Hurricane Harvey in Texas. Their church and reception hall were flooded, their wedding cake was cancelled, catering was cancelled, and many guests were unable to attend their ceremony. They fought through all obstacles and pulled off a beautiful wedding. Love Conquers All! 💕

This community craze began when the Bostick family was on a trip in Washington when Chance found a painted rock while on a hike with his family with “Keep or Re-hide Me” written on the back. The family brought the painted rock tradition home to Belton, Texas.

The process is simple: Find, Paint, Hide! Once you find a decorated rock, you are encouraged to paint a new one and hide it, and then drop a hint on the Facebook group page as to where they are hidden. A clue such as “you can find this one hiding where you would have a great spot to view the parade” along with a photo.

Quilt rocks may also be found where you divide the rock into sections. You paint one section, and each time its found, they paint their own design in another section and then re-hide.

Mod Podging with napkins onto rocks has become really popular. First, cut out a design from the napkin that would fit best on the rock.  Use a brush to paint a thin coat of Mod Podge on the rock and press the napkin design carefully onto the rock and smooth out the wrinkles, and then add another coat of Mod Podge to the rock.

We even have some traveling rocks. After the rocks are painted, some are taking the rocks on trips and leaving the unexpected surprise along the traveler’s route. Belton Rocks is starting a map to see how far our rocks have gone and relay some of the stories of their journeys. Rocks have traveled from sea to shining sea, from California to Florida.  They have even traveled as far as Cancun, Mexico.

Searching for just the perfect stone is part of the fun. Smooth, rounded stones work the best. Once you have found your canvas, rinse the rock to remove dirt and let it dry. You may want to draw your design onto the rock. Acrylic paint works well. For fine detail, a toothpick could be used as a paintbrush. Once you have finished painting the rock, seal the design with Mod Podge to make sure your art lasts for a long time. For more information on rock painting, That Art Place in Belton is hosting a free painted rock workshop on June 3rd from 10am – 3pm.

Tirzah Belton Rocks That Art Place Workshop

Belton is participating in an even bigger effort called International Drop A Rock Day to be held on Monday, July 3rd for rock artists all around the world to paint a rock with the same word on the same day and drop it somewhere for someone to find and brighten their day.

Texas-size Family Fun in the Belton Historical District

Logo-H

💕 Belton, Texas, Parks and Recreation hosted a Free Tubing and Movie in the Park event on Saturday, June 10, 2017, behind The Gin.

Floating on Nolan Creek was a fun way to beat the heat of the afternoon. All of the children were having a blast, but I had just as much fun as the kids riding the small rapids. People typically bring their own tubes at this event, but tubes were available for people to use.

We enjoyed a live music performance on the banks of Nolan Creek by a band known as Touch Of Class. As they performed on the Main Stage, they played great dance hits from the 1950’s to today as the crowd was dancing to the awesome tunes. For more information on the band and their schedule, see http://touchofclass.webs.com.

After tubing, we walked to Scores Sports Bar on S. East Street to get some pizza to eat while we were waiting for the movie to start when the sun went down.

The movie, Sing, was played on the big screen. The story-line was about a dapper Koala named Buster Moon that presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. He took one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition. Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, there were five contestants that emerged … a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine.

The community event was successful in achieving many measures such as making fun affordable for everyone with the various social activities in the Downtown Belton Historical District; people were enjoying the beauty of nature and getting some exercise while having fun; connecting with others in the community helps to form lasting friendships; and the fun family-time creates wonderful memories that last a lifetime.  All of these quality metrics strengthen the community for a wonderful place to live.

Switzerland … The Safest Country in the World

Logo-H


Switzerland is a landlocked country in the heart of Europe which encompasses a great diversity of landscapes, culture, and climates on a limited area of 15,940 square miles. Switzerland is surrounded by 5 countries: Austria, Liechtenstein, France, Italy, and Germany.

Switzerland Map

Not only does Switzerland embrace the strength that comes from diversity, according to a recent study from ValuePenguin, Switzerland was determined to be the safest country to visit or live. Out of 195 countries in the world, 107 supplied enough data to be ranked. The countries were ranked based on: population, CO2 emissions, life expectancy, number of national police personnel, traffic deaths, thefts, and assaults.

World Flags World's Safest Country

The splendor of the magnificent Swiss landscape has inspired poets through the ages. Switzerland offers beauty of snow-capped mountain peaks and picturesque valleys with cascading waterfalls. A few of the top attractions consist of the Matterhorn, Rhine Falls, Lauterbrunnen Valley, Lake Lucerne, and Chillon Castle.

The Matterhorn, an iconic symbol of the Swiss Alps and the tallest mountain in the Alps, is a pyramid-shaped colossus of a mountain that is very difficult to climb. The majestic, isolated mountain is said to be the “most-photographed mountain in the world” as well as the “Mountain of Mountains.”

Matterhorn Switzerland

Rhine Falls are the largest falls in Switzerland as well as the largest plain waterfall on the European continent falling from a height of approximately 75 feet and 492 feet at its widest point. The lyrical poet, Eduard Morike, was awed by the falls and wrote … “Hold your heart, oh traveler, tightly in mighty hands! Mine nearly descended, shivering with pleasure. Restless thundering masses thrown upon masses, ear and eye, whither can they save themselves in such an uproar?”

Rhine Falls Switzerland

Lauterbrunnen Valley is home to 72 thundering waterfalls, including the popular Staubbach Falls, which is the highest free-falling waterfall in Europe plunging from an overhanging mountain in a single unbroken fall; the height of the cascade is between 800 and 900 feet. Lauterbrunnen means “many fountains.” In 1779, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe visited the valley, and was inspired by the roaring waters to write his well-known poem ‘Spirit Song over the Waters’.

“Spirit of man,
Thou art like unto water!
Fortune of man,
Thou art like unto wind!”

Lauterbrunnen Valley Switzerland

Switzerland is home to more than 1,500 lakes including Lake Lucerne. This beautiful lake and Beethoven’s famous classical sonata has captured the listener’s imagination when Ludwig Rellstab, a German music critic and poet, wrote that Beethoven’s Fantasia reminded him of the reflected moonlight off Lake Lucerne; the sonata was described as “a boat passing the wild scenery of Lake Lucerne in the moonlight” in 1836; since that time, Fantasia has been referred to as “Moonlight Sonata.”

Lake Lucerne Switzerland

The Chillon Castle is located on a rock on the banks of Lake Geneva. The water castle is the most visited historic building in Switzerland. Chillon was made popular by Lord Byron, who wrote the poem The Prisoner Of Chillon. The poem was written in 1816, and it chronicles the imprisonment of a Genevois monk, François Bonivard in 1532 who was the lone survivor of a family who has been martyred. Byron visited the castle and carved his name on a pillar in the dungeon. After touring the castle, Byron was inspired by Bonivard’s story and composed the poem.

Chillon Castle Switzerland

With the world title as the safest country in the world, this European country beckons you. The peacefulness and splendor awe visitors from the moment they get a glimpse of the first mountain peaks. The Swiss landscape is a ‘harmonious tableau of beautiful images.’

Wish You Were Here! 💕

Daring Adventure

Logo-H


Remember when you were in grade school, and you were tasked at the beginning of the year to write a short-story about your summer vacation?  As you are transported back in time, what daring adventures in faraway lands did you dream of?  What dragons did you slay?

What new and exciting experiences do you have planned today?  If you were to write about your wonderful memories, how would you want your story to read?  How does the scene unfold?

Adventure

Here are a few inspirational ideas for the adventurous, thrill seekers, fearless, and bold explorers.

St. Lucia’s Jetovator presents the cure for boredom! Prepare to defeat gravity while gliding over the Caribbean’s pristine blue waters on an exhilarating water sports adventure.

Journey to the extraordinary as you ride a camel along the beach and discover beautiful coastal scenery from Los Cabos.

Backpacking in Iceland offers a rigorous trek where raw beauty shapes the countryside with beautiful waterfalls and contrasting rugged trails that were created from ancient volcanic lava flows.

If you are a sports enthusiast, consider entering the Nevis Triathlon which is perhaps the most beautiful challenge as you swim in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, cycle on a bike course around the entire Caribbean island of Nevis, and then complete the event with a scenic run with an amazing blend of road, trail, and beach.

Experience the thrill of zip-lining through a canopy of trees with scenic landscapes in Mexico.
