Heat Waves Kill

According to the Department of Health (MDH), between 2000 to 2016, 54 deaths were directly attributable to extreme heat in Minnesota. On July 19, 2011, an all-time heat index record was set in Minnesota. The air temperatures was 93 degrees Fahrenheit and the heat index reached 130 degrees Fahrenheit in Moorhead.

The National Weather Service (NWS) places high priority on alerting the public to heat wave hazards. Additionally, the MDH has developed an Extreme Heat Toolkit with communications and public-health planning strategies to prevent heat-related illnesses and deaths.

FLOODING AND FLASH FLOODS

Nationally, floods claim nearly 200 lives each year, force 300,000 people from their homes, and result in property damage in excess of $2 billion. In 2019, six out of the nine state and federally-declared disasters in Minnesota involved some sort of flooding.

About 75 percent of flash-flood deaths occur at night. Half of the victims die in automobiles or other vehicles. Many deaths occur when people drive around road barricades that clearly indicate that the road is washed out ahead.

STORMS, HAIL AND LIGHTNING

Thunderstorms affect relatively small areas, compared with most other storms. The typical thunderstorm is 15 miles in diameter and lasts for 30 minutes — but whatever their size, all thunderstorms are dangerous.

Severe thunderstorms produce large hail or winds of at least 58 mph. Some wind gusts can exceed 100 mph and produce tornado-like damage. That’s why many communities will sound their outdoor sirens for damaging straight-line winds.

When a severe thunderstorm threatens, stay inside a strong structure. Mobile home occupants should go to a more permanent structure.

National Weather Service Offering Free SKYWARN Spotter Classes
Weather Spotters Needed Across the Northland

DULUTH, MN (March 25, 2022) — The National Weather Service (NWS) in Duluth, Minnesota, will be offering annual Skywarn Spotter Training classes this spring to recruit weather spotters! Skywarn is a cooperative effort between the NWS, local emergency management, and private citizens who volunteer their time to attend free classes and send their weather reports to the NWS. Volunteers who commit to attending these classes serve a vital need for the NWS by monitoring and reporting severe weather conditions. These reports, in turn, help the NWS deliver accurate and timely severe weather warnings. The class is great for anyone who wants to learn more about weather, and no weather background is necessary to attend the class! The course covers:

● thunderstorm safety
● the science of thunderstorms
● different types of cloud formations and what they mean
● how spotters can get their reports to the National Weather Service

For 2022, there will be a mix of both virtual and in-person classes, with a variety of days and times available to accommodate different schedules. Classes are completely free and last about an hour and a half. The NWS will continue to offer both its normal Basic course, and a special Advanced class for those wanting more in-depth learning about the science of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. Current spotters are requested to attend the course at least every four years. (There is also a recorded version of the course on the NWS website for those that are unable to attend a live class.)

The full class schedule is available online at weather.gov/dlh/skywarn. For more information, contact Warning Coordination Meteorologist Joe Moore at [email protected].

NWS Duluth,

A messy spring storm system will bring a prolonged period of wintry precipitation Monday afternoon through Wednesday, including rain, freezing rain, and snow. Snow and ice accumulations will be possible across the region, particularly along and north of US Highway 2. There remains some uncertainty on the precipitation types and amounts as small variations in temperatures will impact the change-over of different precipitation types.

Media release regarding a fire our office responded to this morning.

03/18/2022

Let's hear it for Duluth Police K-9 Kallie and Officer O'Connor!
Yesterday, an anonymous caller reported an explosive device had been seen in an Esko School classroom. The building was immediately evacuated, and numerous law enforcement and other emergency responders were called in.
This included K-9 Kallie who specializes in explosives detection. Her talented nose assisted authorities in conducting "a comprehensive and exhaustive search of all classrooms, storage areas, and lockers", ultimately determining the call had been a hoax.
The school is large enough to hold all grades, kindergarten through high school, but thanks to the thorough search, students were able to return to the building by early evening to retrieve personal belongings.
We are thankful for this team's good work and for the response of all involved! It's a good example of how K-9 teams are a valuable resource for our entire region beyond just the agency they serve.

Worth mentioning, this isn't K-9 Kallie's first experience searching a school building. You may recall she successfully searched a school that had received a similar threat - on her very first day on the job!
K-9 Kallie, you once again earn honors as teacher's pet:-)
