Barge breaks loose from Tappan Zee construction site

The Journal News - Theresa Juva-Brown, March 30, 2014

For the third time since September, a barge has come loose from the Tappan Zee Bridge construction site.

Piermont resident Dean Taucher was looking out his window around 4 p.m. Sunday when he noticed that one barge carrying large steel piles was floating away from the construction site.

"One of them was moving really good down the river, and I thought, 'That's not good,'" Taucher said.

He called Piermont police and authorities, including boats from the project team, arrived by 4:45 p.m., he told The Journal News.

Tappan Zee Constructors confirmed in a statement that one of its barges came loose from its mooring on Sunday afternoon and was recovered about an hour later in coordination with the Piermont Police Department.

TZC's daily operations include at least four checks of mooring tie-offs each shift and the runaway barge was inspected about 45 minutes before it separated from its mooring, the statement said. A full investigation is underway.

Brian Conybeare, special adviser to Gov. Andrew Cuomo on the project, called Sunday's incident "unacceptable.

As New Tappan Zee Bridge Goes Up (Along With Tolls), Funding Questions Remain

By Joseph Berger - New York Times
March 26, 2014, Wednesday

A new Tappan Zee Bridge is rising over a three-mile stretch of the Hudson River — the first pilings are in, looking like giant tree stumps growing out of the water — but a big question looms: Where will the $3.9 billion come from to pay for it?

Officials at the New York State Thruway Authority, the agency overseeing construction of the bridge, one of the country’s biggest civil engineering projects, say that it will largely be financed with bonds that will be paid for by tolls.

“The intent is to pay for the entire cost of the project by increases at the bridge itself,” Thomas J. Madison Jr., the authority’s executive director, said in an interview.

But more than a few government officials, including members of the State Legislature and transportation finance experts, fear that increases in what is now a $5 round-trip toll may be too steep for daily commuters and thus politically untenable.

Rockland budget: Vanderhoef plan raises taxes 9.9%
Oct. 23, 2013

NEW CITY — Rockland County Executive C. Scott Vanderhoef said Wednesday that county property owners would see a 9.9 percent tax increase under his proposed 2014 county budget.

But he also warned that the plan would have to be revisited if Gov. Andrew Cuomo declined to back a home-rule request that would let the county borrow $96 million to help plug most of its $128 million budget deficit.

If Rockland can’t borrow that money, it is legally obligated to set aside $10 million in the budget to start repaying the deficit — a move that could bring an overall 2014 property-tax increase of as much as 20 percent.

The 9.9 percent increase means an average property-tax hike of about $101, Vanderhoef said, bringing the total average bill to about $1,070.

“It’s still difficult for some people,” he said. “On the other hand, it’s less than some library tax bills, and when you consider all the services and programs the county offers, it still represents a good value.”

Expert Warns We’re Still Unprepared for Sandy-Like Event

Published: October 22nd, 2013
By Michael D. Lemonick

When he realized that Hurricane Sandy was on track for a direct hit on the New York metropolitan area, and that the storm would almost certainly be making landfall at high tide, Klaus Jacob went into high gear. “First,” he recalled nearly a year later, sitting in a bright, modern conference room near his office at Columbia’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, “I called my contacts at the MTA (New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority), and said ‘whatever you can do, do.’ ”

Jacob, a seismologist who used to worry mostly about earthquakes but who has expanded his portfolio to include climate change adaptation and disaster risk management, has been warning for years that the wall of water pushed ahead of a major storm could inundate low-lying areas of the city, fill subway tunnels with water and inflict tremendous economic damage on the region. He’s been so vocal, in fact, that he’s been labeled a “Cassandra” on the topic.

Now it was really happening, and as transit officials began moving trains out of harm’s way at Jacob’s urging, he sent an email alert about the likelihood of flooding to roughly 100 of his neighbors in the town of Piermont, N.Y., about 15 miles north of New York City, on the west bank of the Hudson River. “It’s my hometown forecast system, my private little undertaking for the benefit of the village,” he said. When a storm surge strikes from the sea, it pushes water up the Hudson — not just as far as Piermont, but all the way to Albany, nearly 150 miles further north.

But this sort of reactive measure isn’t sustainable in the long term, as the rising seas that come with climate change increase the risk of devastating storm surges. If current projections about sea level rise are correct, Jacob said, “What we now call a 100-year flood will be reduced to a 2- to 5-year flood.”

Even now, a year after the storm, “I would say, by and large, that we are as vulnerable as we were the day before Sandy,” he said. “There is no fast fix.”

PBS Nova - Megastorm Aftermath

How can cities prepare for rising seas and raging storms?
Aired October 9, 2013 on PBS

In October 2012, Megastorm Sandy cut a path of devastation across the Caribbean and the East Coast, killing hundreds and doing tens of billions of dollars in damage. To many, it was a wake-up call. Now, one year after Sandy's deadly strike, NOVA follows up on the 2012 film "Inside the Megastorm" with a fresh investigation of the critical questions raised by this historic storm: Was Megastorm Sandy a freak combination of weather systems? Or are hurricanes increasing in intensity due to a changing climate? What can we do to prepare ourselves for the next Sandy, and what progress has been made toward making our urban infrastructure more resilient?

Was Megastorm Sandy a freak combination of weather systems? Or are hurricanes increasing in intensity due to a warming climate? How did this perfect storm make search and rescue so dangerous? "Inside the Megastorm" takes viewers moment by moment through Sandy, its impacts, and the future of storm protection. Through first person accounts from those who survived, and from experts and scientists, "Inside the Megastorm" gives scientific context to a new breed of storms.



The National Flood Insurance Program

Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012

In 2012, the U.S. Congress passed the Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 which calls on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and other agencies, to make a number of changes to the way the NFIP is run. As the law is implemented, some of these changes have already occurred, and others will be implemented in the coming months. Key provisions of the legislation will require the NFIP to raise rates to reflect true flood risk, make the program more financially stable, and change how Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) updates impact policyholders. The changes will mean premium rate increases for some – but not all -- policyholders over time.

The Weather Channel - 2012: Warmest Year on Record for U.S.

Jon Erdman, Nick Wiltgen Published: Jan 9, 2013, 6:20 AM EST weather.com

If you thought 2012 was unusually warm where you live in the U.S., your suspicions have been confirmed.

According to the U.S. "State of the Climate" report released Thursday by NOAA's National Climatic Data Center, 2012 was the warmest year on record in the contiguous U.S. (Lower 48 states), in records dating to 1895.

The average temperature for the Lower 48 States in 2012 (55.3 deg. F) bested the previous record warm year, 1998, by a full degree Fahrenheit, and was 3.2 degrees F above the long-term average in the 20th century.

Nineteen states had a record warm year in 2012. Click through the slideshow above for the full list of these states. Another 26 states had at least a top 10 warmest year in 2012. Every state in the Lower 48 States had at least above-average warmth in 2012. Only Alaska was cooler than average in 2012.

Storm Surge: An Interview With Climate Change Expert Klaus Jacob On NYC's Post-Sandy Future

NEW YORK — Geophysicist Klaus Jacob has been warning about how vulnerable New York City is to violent weather for years and, more importantly in his view, how climate change and rising sea levels will transform the shape and character of the metropolis.

Weeks before Superstorm Sandy shocked the city and upended the public discussion about preparing for future extreme weather, The New York Times published an interview with Jacob in which he said that the storm surge from Hurricane Irene came only a foot from paralyzing transportation in and out of Manhattan.

“We’ve been extremely lucky,” Jacob told the Times. “I’m disappointed that the political process hasn’t recognized that we’re playing Russian roulette.”

Public Forum on Climate Change, Sandy, and the Future of New York City

A few weeks ago, New York City--along with a long swath of North America's Atlantic coast and several Carribean islands-- was battered by Superstorm Sandy, a weather system that caused unprecedented damage to hundreds of communities. The Institute for Public Knowledge is organizing a Public Forum at NYU to think broadly about this storm, climate change, and the city of New York.

How do we prepare for a future with more frequent and violent storms?

What are the roles for government agencies, private organizations, and individual citizens in emergency preparedness?

What are the public health implications--both long-term and short?

Does New York need a massive design intervention, or some new housing codes?

Yahoo News - Nov.28, 2012 - Sea Levels Rising Faster Than Projected

Sea Levels Rising Faster Than Projected

By Live Science Staff | LiveScience.com – Wed, Nov 28, 2012

New satellite measurements suggest that global sea levels are rising faster than the most recent projections by the United Nations' climate change panel.

The new report found that sea levels are rising at an annual rate of 0.12 inches (3.2 millimeters) — 60 percent faster than the best estimate of 0.08 inches (2 millimeters) per year, which the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) calculated in 2007.

"This study shows once again that the IPCC is far from alarmist, but in fact has underestimated the problem of climate change," German oceanographer and climatologist Stefan Rahmstorf, who led the study, said in a statement. "That applies not just for sea-level rise, but also to extreme events and the Arctic sea-ice loss."

Satellites, which measure changes in sea level by bouncing radar waves off the sea surface, provide much more accurate measurements than tide gauges, because they have near-global coverage, as opposed to just coastal coverage, researchers say.

In addition to the change in sea level, the team assessed another marker of global warming — the overall warming trend of global temperatures. But their results closely corresponded with the IPCC's fourth assessment report, finding that the current overall warming trend of global temperatures is 0.28 degrees Fahrenheit (0.16 degrees Celsius) per decade.

The Science and the Lessons of Hurricane Sandy

There’s plenty of conversation going on about all this already. On the Connecticut public radio show “Where We Live,” on WNPR, Earth Institute Executive Director Steve Cohen joined others talking about building more resilient cities.

On Democracy Now, Cynthia Rosenzweig of the Center for Climate Systems Research and the NASA-Goddard Institute for Space Studies talked about New York’s vulnerabilities to extreme weather events. She had a hand in two studies, one done a decade ago, that foretold some of what came to pass this week.

Earth Institute researcher Radley Horton spoke to Terry Gross on NPR radio’s “Fresh Air” about climate and the future after Sandy — what do rising sea level, warming oceans and disappearing Arctic sea ice have to do with it?

On the New York news site CapitalNewYork, reporter Dana Rubenstein spoke with Lamont-Doherty scientist Klaus Jacob and others for her piece, “There could be worse: What New York isn’t doing (yet) about the next storm.”

Oct. 31: Two days after Hurricane Sandy knocked out power to lower Manhattan and shut down the New York transit system, the city is struggling to recover. It’s hard to say yet how long that will take.

Klaus Jacob, a scientist with the Earth Institute, said the storm is a “wake-up call” for New York and other cities around the world to address aging infrastructure and better prepare for coastal flooding. The call comes in even louder if you consider the prospect of rising sea levels and more extreme weather events from global warming.

“We had one wake-up call last year under the name of Irene. We got away with less than we will most likely incur from Sandy,” Jacob said in an interview with the BBC. “The question is how many wake-up calls do we need to get out of our snoozing, sleeping, dreaming morning attitude? We have to get into action. We have to set priorities and spend money. For every one dollar invested in protection you get a return of four dollars of not incurred losses.”

November 19, 2012 - FEMA News Release

DISASTER AID DOES NOT AFFECT SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE BENEFITS

NEW YORK – Disaster assistance does not count as income. Survivors who receive federal disaster assistance as a result of Hurricane Sandy will not pay additional income taxes or see any reduction in their Social Security checks or any other federal benefits.

Grants for temporary housing, essential home repairs, replacement of personal property or other needs do not count as income. Donations from charitable organizations also will not affect Social Security payments or Medicare benefits.

“We understand the concerns of senior citizens and other survivors and do not want them to be burdened with the question of whether or not disaster assistance will affect other benefits they may be receiving,” said Federal Coordinating Officer Mike Byrne. “The assistance we provide will not affect taxes or social security. Anyone with questions can call the FEMA helpline or visit one of our disaster recovery centers.”

Survivors can find the nearest disaster recovery center by visiting www.FEMA.gov/DRCLocator or by calling the FEMA helpline, 800-621-FEMA (3362). People who have a speech disability or hearing loss can call TTY 800-462-7585.

Survivors can also register with FEMA by calling the helpline numbers. Online registration is available at www.DisasterAssistance.gov. Or people can register with a tablet or smartphone by using the FEMA app or by visiting m.fema.gov.

Homeowners, renters and business owners who sustained damage from the hurricane in any of the 13 New York counties designated for federal individual assistance may be eligible for FEMA grants to help cover expenses for temporary housing, home repairs, replacement of damaged personal property and other disaster-related needs, such as medical, dental or transportation costs not covered by insurance or other programs.

Eligibility for FEMA assistance is not dependent on income. The determination of the amount of disaster assistance an eligible applicant receives is based on the amount of loss and damages incurred as a direct result of the storm and the amount of their insurance settlement, if any.

November 17, 2012 - FEMA News Release

FEMA ELIGIBILITY LETTER, THE FIRST LETTER MAY NOT BE THE FINAL WORD

NEW YORK – If you applied for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) following Hurricane Sandy and received a letter stating you were not eligible for disaster aid, you should know that the first letter may not be the final word.

If applicants receive a letter from FEMA that states that they are ineligible, it does not necessarily mean an applicant is not eligible for disaster assistance. If the letter states “ineligible” or “incomplete,” more information may be needed, such as the applicant’s insurance documents or proof of status of their claim, prior to disaster aid being granted.

FEMA requires homeowners and renters to provide insurance and other information at the time of registration. After a disaster, important documents may not be readily available or may be destroyed. Applicants for disaster aid can update their information about insurance and residency at any point during the application process.

A determination letter sent by FEMA will specifically explain why an application needs to be revisited. It might ask for insurance settlement documentation for property damaged or destroyed, or for documents reflecting proof of occupancy or ownership of the damaged property.
