Listening to climate
campaigners, you would think that Hurricane Sandy, already downgraded to
a tropical storm, was something that never happened before in the
United States. While damage has indeed been severe for a number of
reasons I discuss below, winds are already slowing due to drag produced
as the storm moves over land.
In fact, there have been many
storms far more powerful than Sandy, which, by the time it hit the coast
of the U.S. was barely a category 1 hurricane. ICSC Science Advisory
Board member, Dr. Tim Ball, environmental consultant and former
climatology professor, University of Winnipeg, explains that Sandy's
upgrading to even this level was the result of one measurement from a

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Rotarians on Grand Bahama came together during Hurricane Sandy with the activation of the emergency Rotary Water Plant from October 24-28, 2012. Commissioned after the devastating hurricanes of Frances and Jeanne in 2004, the plant provides potable drinking water to residents during times when serious weather impacts the local supply.
Rotarians activated the plant's RO machine in advance of Hurricane Sandy, putting about 5,000 gallons of water in the tank. Sandy impacted Grand Bahama for much of Friday and into the evening and early hours of Saturday. The plant was re-activated early Saturday morning and Rotary volunteers began to assemble to help. They were put to work sanitizing and filling the nearly 500 one-gallon jugs which had been collected and stored in the plant throughout the year.
On Saturday, between the hours of 10:00am and 7:00pm, Rotarians estimate they gave away approximately 3,600 gallons of water to persons who came to the plant either with their own jugs or took those which they had to give them. In addition, they sent two tank trailers (275 gallons each) with Rotarian Peter Turnquest to be taken to East End Grand Bahama once the water subsided. The Grand Bahama Fire Brigade also made two trips with 55 gallon drums to flush toilets at some of the old folks homes on the island.
