Live Bliksemontladingen

De teller in het icoon met het onweersbuitje geeft live het actuele aantal bliksemontladingen uit onze regio weer. De dekking ligt in een vierkant om Nederland en België, waardoor er ook data van rondom Parijs, op de Noordzee en uit een deel van Duitsland wordt weergegeven.

Ontladingen

De ontladingen kun je terugvinden op de Google Maps kaart onderaan de pagina. Deze worden nog niet live bijgewerkt, voor de meest actuele ontladingen ververs je de pagina. De iconen op de kaart lopen in kleur van Geel naar Rood, waarbij Geel een 'nieuwe' ontlading is en Rood een 'oude'.

Geluid

De teller maakt geluid als het aantal bliksemontladingen verhoogt. Dus, bij een update van 0 naar 1 hoor je geluid. Je kunt dit uitschakelen met het luidspreker icoontje in de balk hierboven.

Sneeuwstorm legt verkeer Californië lam



De Verenigde Staten worden geteisterd door hevig winterweer. Vooral Californië kreeg het zwaar te verduren. Een sneeuwstorm heeft er zelfs het verkeer op een belangrijke snelweg lamgelegd. Honderden automobilisten kwamen vast te zitten in hun auto's op de Interstate 5.
In de kustregio viel heel veel regen. De autoriteiten waarschuwen voor overstromingen en aardverschuivingen. Het gaat vooral om de gebieden waar van de zomer bosbranden woedden en de vegetatie vernietigd werd.



Ook Mexico heeft het zwaar. Een storm die gepaard ging met krachtige windvlagen heeft grote delen van Mexico-stad in het donker gezet. Omgewaaide verkeersborden en bomen blokkeerden belangrijke verkeersaders. Het onder normale omstandigheden al chaotische verkeer in de miljoenenstad liep nog meer in het honderd doordat de verkeerslichten waren uitgevallen.

Storm Blasts Southern California With Snow, Heavy Rain, Wind

A powerful winter storm that unleashed a thick blanket of mountain snow, heavy rain and at least one tornado pounded Southern California for a fifth straight day Friday. Some areas Thursday received more rain than they did the entire year before, National Weather Service meteorologist Jamie Meier said, though experts said the moisture would do little to improve local water supplies.

By Friday morning, Long Beach had received 2.43 inches of rain, compared to 2.1 over the previous 12 months, Meier said. Downtown Los Angeles had received 2.25 inches and Santa Barbara was drenched with 5.4 inches. Higher up, Mountain High ski resort received 18 inches of snow, but was forced to close its slopes Thursday due to high winds. The resort said on its Web site it would reopen Friday.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the Santa Barbara County mountains through 10 p.m. Friday. The snow level was expected to drop to between 2,000 and 3,000 feet Thursday night, and down to 1,500 feet during heavier showers or thunderstorms.

At least one waterspout from the Pacific made landfall Thursday night, the National Weather Service said. The tornado tore the roof off of a building at Naval Base Ventura County in Point Mugu, meteorologist Curt Kaplan said. Vance Vasquez, a base spokesman, said debris was scattered across the runway and "a good portion" of the roof was torn from Hangar 351, which houses aircraft. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

The storm had forced the closure of Interstate 5 late Wednesday on each side of the Grapevine section of Tejon Pass, which soars to an elevation of more than 4,000 feet between the Los Angeles Basin and the San Joaquin Valley. Hundreds of trucks and cars were stuck along a 40-mile stretch of the major north-south artery but most had been guided out by Thursday morning, the California Highway Patrol said.

A powerful winter storm that unleashed a thick blanket of mountain snow, heavy rain and at least one tornado pounded Southern California for a fifth straight day Friday. Some areas had received more rain in the storm than they did the entire year before, National Weather Service meteorologist Jamie Meier said, though experts said the moisture would do little to improve local water supplies. By Friday morning, Long Beach Airport had received 2.76 inches of rain, compared to 2.1 inches over the previous 12 months, Meier said. Downtown Los Angeles had received 2.54 inches and Gibraltar Dam near Santa Barbara was drenched with 7.56 inches.

A flash flood warning was in effect early Friday in Los Angeles in areas around Griffith Park that were denuded by last year's wildfires. "Residents and motorists in and below recently burned areas should be alert to heavy mud and debris flows, which may block roads," a National Weather Service advisory warned. Higher up, Mountain High ski resort received 18 inches of snow, but was forced to close its slopes Thursday due to high winds. The resort said on its Web site it would reopen Friday.

Hundreds of trucks and cars were stuck along a 40-mile stretch of the major north-south artery but most had been guided out by Thursday morning, the California Highway Patrol said.

A roughly 40-mile stretch of the icy interstate stayed closed until Friday morning after overnight rains helped clear snow on the road, CHP Officer David Porter said. In Orange County, crews placed safety barriers against several homes in fire-scarred Modjeska Canyon Thursday. "The rain resulted in a few minor debris flows behind a few houses but as far as I know there was no structural damage," Capt. Mike Blawn of the Orange County Fire Authority said.

Authorities are concerned about another storm forecast to hit the area over the weekend. Forecasters are predicting 4-6 inches to hit south and southwest facing mountain slopes between Saturday night and Sunday morning. Heavy rain and hail prompted the Santa Anita horse track in Arcadia to cancel races Thursday, the fourth time this month. Its synthetic track has had drainage problems. The storm was not expected to improve local water supplies. One of the driest rain seasons on record left reservoirs so low last year that several cities called for voluntary water conservation

In areas previously denuded by fire, including Malibu and some Orange County canyons, residents remained braced for the possibility of having to evacuate, but no incidents were immediately reported early Friday, reports CBS News

More storms to batter Southland



Avalanches kill one skier and leave another near death. Officials are on guard for mudslides, floods.

The wave of storms battering Southern California began to take its toll Friday, causing avalanches that killed one skier and left another near death in Wrightwood, flooding roads and threatening additional damage as more rain approaches. The new round of storms was expected to begin about 6 tonight, bringing up to 5 inches of rain to Los Angeles County, up to 3 inches in Orange County and up to 8 inches in Riverside and San Bernardino counties by Monday morning.



"The ground is already saturated with water, so this new rainfall will just hit the ground and start running," said Stuart Seto, a weather specialist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. In two backcountry avalanches Friday, snow tore loose from slopes near the Mountain High ski resort in the San Gabriel Mountains. One avalanche killed Michael McKay, 23, an off-duty member of the resort's ski patrol. In the second avalanche, skier Darren Coffey, 33, also a veteran ski patrol member, was found in grave condition halfway up the slope late Friday evening after an intensive search. Rescue crews were also searching for two other missing skiers who may have been trapped in yet another avalanche. In each case, the victims were skiing off-trail, authorities said.

1 killed, 4 missing in Calif. avalanches

Three mountain avalanches killed a skier and left as many as four others missing Friday as California strained under nearly a week of snow and rain.

One avalanche struck Friday afternoon at Wrightwood in the snow-laden San Gabriel Mountains. Michael McKay, a 23-year-old employee of the Mountain High ski area, was pulled from the debris, San Bernardino County coroner's office said. He died at a hospital later that afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.

As night fell, searchers were still looking for another person who was missing after a second avalanche about a half-mile from the first, on national forest land. A third avalanche also was reported and as many as three people were believed to be missing, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Aura Sierra.

Many spent most of the night in their vehicles on the freeway.

Onstuimig (winter)weer in de VS

Het zijn voor winterliefhebbers moeilijke tijden. Er waait in onze omgeving een stevige zuidwestenwind zodat van winterweer vooralsnog geen sprake is. Ook elders in Europa liggen de temperaturen (ruim) boven normaal. Alleen de hoger gelegen gebieden in Centraal-Europa en verder ook het noorden van Scandinavië hebben te maken met sneeuw en vorst. Heel anders is de situatie aan de andere kant van de Atlantische Oceaan. Op diverse plaatsen was het de afgelopen week volop winter en ook de komende dagen staat er voor verschillende regio’s serieus winterweer op het programma.


De wind komt vrijwel onafgebroken uit de zuidwesthoek. Van vorst of sneeuw is dan ook voorlopig geen sprake. Eind volgende week lijkt de wind te gaan draaien naar het noordwesten waardoor het een stuk guurder wordt. Foto: Henk van Loon.

Rondom de grote meren viel, nadat zeer koude poollucht via Canada naar het zuiden was afgezakt, een enorme hoeveelheid sneeuw. Vooral aan de zuidelijke oevers van de meren viel een flink pak. Omdat de koude lucht over relatief warm water stroomde, ontstonden zonder al te veel moeite zware sneeuwbuien. (Lees meer over het Lake Snow Effect)

Ook het noordoosten van de VS kreeg te maken met onvervalst winterweer. New York kreeg te maken met vorst en sneeuw, maar echt veel stelde dit niet voor. Naar het noorden toe was het allemaal extremer. De oostelijke punt van Noord-Amerika, New Foundland kreeg een sneeuwstorm te verwerken. Zuid van het Canadese eiland New Foundland, gelegen voor de kust van Noord-Amerika trok eind vorige week een actief lagedrukgebied langs. Aan de noordkant stond een noordoosterstorm en verder viel er in korte tijd veel (20 tot 35 cm) sneeuw. De temperatuur daalde er tot rond -10 graden.

Niet alleen in het uiterste oosten van Canada is het koud, ook in Centraal-Canada volgt de komende dagen een uitbraak van poollucht. Komt vandaag in Calgary het kwik in de middag nog boven nul, tussen zondagavond en donderdagochtend worden er temperaturen verwacht tussen -25 en -35 graden. Verder naar het noorden worden zelfs temperaturen verwacht van -45 graden. Records worden niet gebroken, want soms komt het kwik in deze regio zelfs op -50 graden uit.


Terwijl in Texas de temperatuur oploopt tot meer dan 20 graden, zakt een portie zeer koude lucht uit Canada langzaam naar het zuiden. Dinsdag (rechterkaart) gaat de temperatuur in steeds meer staten (snel) onderuit.

Ook aan de westkust was er van alles te beleven. Afgelopen donderdag viel er in de staat Californie enorm veel neerslag. In de laaggelegen kustregio ging het om regen. Zo ving Santa Barbara 137 mm op gevolgd door Morro Bay met 91 mm. In Beverly Hills werd in korte tijd 60 mm opgevangen. Ter vergelijking, in Nederland valt in een gehele maand meestal 50 tot 75 mm regen. Eenmaal het binnenland in, ging de neerslag op veel plaatsen in sneeuw over. In de Sierra Nevada leverde dat voor de wintersporters een flink pak verse sneeuw op. De snelweg tussen Los Angeles en Sacramento was echter enige tijd onbegaanbaar door zware (natte) sneeuwval. Inmiddels is de temperatuur weer opgelopen, maar een nieuwe depressie voor de kust zorgt in de loop van het weekend opnieuw voor regen en sneeuw.

In onze omgeving staat er voorlopig nog weinig te gebeuren, toch zien we aan het eind van de week een depressie richting de Noordzee trekken. Dit lagedrukgebied neemt koudere lucht mee en aan het eind van de week volgt dan ook een overgang naar een guur weertype met soms veel wind, lagere temperaturen en buien die, zoals het er nu naar uitziet, steeds vaker een winters karakter krijgen.


Ook in Europa gaat de temperatuur eind deze week omlaag. Volgende week zaterdag (rechterkaart) zien we het kwik, met uitzondering van de kustgebieden, met moeite boven nul uitkomen. Alle heuvel- en berggebieden krijgen met sneeuwval te maken, maar ook in het laagland volgt (waarschijnlijk tijdelijk) winterse neerslag.

Californians Brace Latest Set of Wintry Storms; 2 Die in Avalanche

Swaths of California braced for another bout of heavy weather Saturday as a fresh series of storms swirled toward the state. Wintry conditions over the past week have already claimed at least two lives, when two died in an avalanche, and authorities were on full alert for mudslides and flash floods in areas denuded by last year's wildfires.

National Weather Service meteorologist Richard Thompson said up to 8 inches of rain would fall in the hills outside Los Angeles starting Saturday evening and area ski resorts could be pounded by as much as 3 feet of powder.

"There's going to be very significant impacts," Thompson said. "Debris and mudflows will be a great concern."

Several storms have been squeezing rain onto Southern California since Monday. Some areas have received more moisture in that time than during the entire rainy season last year. One man was killed, another critically injured and two were missing after three avalanches swept backcountry slopes in the San Gabriel Mountains outside Los Angeles on Friday, authorities said.

Michael McKay, 23, of Wrightwood, was an off-duty ski patroller from the Mountain High resort. He was killed in the first of the three slides. Searchers found another skier, Darren Coffee, in a second avalanche late Friday officials said.

He was declared dead at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center early Saturday, a few hours after rescuers pulled him from a slide in the San Gabriel Mountains, Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputy Cory Kennedy said. The cause of death was not immediately known, nor were Coffee's age and hometown.

Heavy Storms Batter California; TV Actor Dies in Avalanche


Jan. 25: Heavy snow is piled on the side of the road in the community of Mount Baldy, Calif., north of Claremont.

LOS ANGELES — The latest in a series of storms that unleashed deadly avalanches, flooded streets and caused mud and rock slides barreled into Southern California on Saturday, threatening more problems for the rain-soaked region.

Heavy showers arrived late in the day after a blue-sky break in the storms allowed searchers to find the body of a third skier killed by a snow slide and rescue a missing snowboarder who survived a frigid night in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Storms Close Major Roadways in California as Wet Weather Begins to Move Out of Region

Several major roadways across the state were closed early Monday after the latest in a week's worth of storms, and experts warned that the risk of mudslides has not eased even as wet weather begins moving out of the region.

Snow forced the closure of the main artery between Sacramento and Reno, Nev., officials said Sunday night. Eastbound Interstate 80 was closed at Colfax about 50 miles northeast of Sacramento, and westbound traffic was being held at the Nevada state line.

Officials also closed a nearly 130-mile stretch of Interstate 395, from just north of Bishop to the Nevada line.Highway 92 was reopened Sunday after being shut down for a few hours between Skyline Boulevard and Half Moon Bay south of San Francisco after the storms knocked down trees and power lines.

Experts say hillsides in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties charred by last year's wildfires remain at risk for landslides.

Near San Diego, mud and minor rockslides prompted California Highway Patrol officials to shut Route 78 through a burn area between Ramona and Escondido.

Downtown Los Angeles recorded 5.3 inches of rain in the past seven days, National Weather Service forecaster Ryan Kitrell said. However, Monday will bring a clearing trend, Kitrell said. The wet weather has pushed the seasonal total for Los Angeles to more than 10 inches — well ahead of the norm of 6.5 inches for this time of year.

Heavy snow, wind slam Western states
They got clobbered,' meteorologist says of one town's residents


Delvey Wright puts his chains away to wait for a tow truck after sliding off Interstate 15 Monday in Lehi, Utah.

BOISE, Idaho - Heavy snow pummeled Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Washington, leaving thousands without power, causing widespread havoc on roads and even overwhelming one ski resort.

The snowfall led to the collapse Monday of several roofs at businesses in northern Idaho, while avalanches forced the evacuations of dozens of homes. There were no injuries.

About 20 inches of snow fell around Coeur d'Alene. "They got clobbered," John Livingston, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said of residents in that northern city.

Snow, Cold, Wind Head Into Northeast

Wicked wind and blowing snow blinded drivers and Lake Erie surged over its eastern shore Wednesday as severe weather that sliced through the nation's midsection took aim at the Northeast. The bad weather reached upstate New York by early Wednesday and sent mercury tumbling rapidly across the Northeast and New England. As many as five deaths were believed connected to the storm.

Inside Nick's Texas Hots diner in Buffalo, workers Thomas Knapp and Cindy Jimerson dragged a large, twisted chunk of aluminum, perhaps a shed or an awning, out of the middle of a road after watching it sail from a parking lot. If someone was walking it would have cut their head off, Jimerson said from behind the counter.


In this photo released by the Washington State Department of Transportation, a large plow tries to clear the snow after an avalanche fell from the east on Snoqualmie Pass in Washington state, Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2008. Periodic heavy snow began falling in Eastern Washington and northern Idaho over the weekend, and no relief was in sight.

Knapp's arms and fingers were spotted with bandages after wedging the corrugated heap about 8-feet-by-8-feet, with the help of a passer-by, between the diner and some newspaper boxes. I don't think it's going to stay there, he said as he looked out a window as gusts of more than 60 mph shook street signs and buffeted cars.

The severe weather was part of a storm system that knocked out power to thousands in upstate New York, West Virginia, Ohio and Illinois. In Michigan, Lower Peninsula residents were in the dark as blizzard conditions hit the western and northern parts of the state.

Wild Weather Whips Nation With Snow, Winds, Floods, Tornadoes

Lake Erie surged over its eastern shore Wednesday, adding flooding to the headaches delivered by a windy storm that tipped tractor-trailers, disrupted flights, and toppled trees and power lines across a wide swath of the nation. Arctic air roared into New York before dawn, sending Tuesday's springlike temperatures plummeting. Buffalo went from 53 degrees at 3 a.m. Wednesday to 15 degrees by noon. Classes were canceled at most area schools.

High winds were suspected of collapsing a scaffold at a Brooklyn building that killed a construction worker and seriously injured another Wednesday morning. In northern Ohio, a train traveling in high winds derailed on a bridge over Sandusky Bay around 4 a.m., sending about 10 freight cars into the water, said Ottawa County Sheriff Robert Bratton. No injuries were reported.

Authorities on Tuesday rescued five people camping in a van near Elkton, Ore., the Douglas County sheriff's office said. They had planned to leave Sunday but were trapped by snow. With supplies dwindling, one man hiked to find cell phone service and to contact relatives in Tacoma, Wash., who then notified authorities.

In Washington state, an avalanche trapped two cars and forced the closure of the westbound lane of snowy Interstate 90, the state's main east-west thoroughfare, at Snoqualmie Pass. No one was injured in the avalanche, which occurred just hours after the road was reopened following its longest weather closure since 2002.

The nation's midsection woke up Thursday to more bad weather, this time a storm that iced over parts of the Southern Plains as it moved northeast to cities like Chicago, St. Louis and Indianapolis.

Those cities could see several inches of snow by mid-day, while Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh could see similar amounts by Thursday night. The stormfront is expected to turn to rain by the time it hits the Northeast seaboard on Friday.

Giant storm pounds Midwest, barrels toward Northeast

A huge storm that stretched from Texas to the Great Lakes blanketed the nation's midsection with snow, tying up air travel and making roads treacherous, and headed for the Northeast on Friday. Five inches of snow was reported at Chicago's Midway Airport by early Friday and more was expected to begin around rush hour.



More than 600 flights were canceled Thursday at O'Hare International Airport, where low visibility continued to be a problem Friday, officials said. Between eight to 12 inches of snow was forecast for the Chicago area by Friday afternoon. It looks like this morning's rush hour is going to be really impacted, National Weather Service meteorologist Paul Merzlock said. With what's going to be coming down at the rate it'll be coming down, all the roads are going to be snow-packed and snow-covered.



Elsewhere, Indianapolis received less than 2 inches of snow overnight, despite predictions for much more. But the National Weather Service said northern Indiana could get up to a foot of snow. Fort Wayne had received 4 inches by early Friday. Hundreds of schools in Michigan canceled class Friday in anticipation of the storm, which was expected to drop as many as 13 inches of snow in the southeastern portion of the state. Up to 4 inches had fallen by early Friday.

Storm makes drivers slip, fliers wait

Winter storms at both ends of the country dumped snow and snarled air and land travel Friday, killing at least 10 people, blocking major highways and even stranding 400 train passengers in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest.

Nearly 7 1/2 inches of snow was reported at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport before the front moved out of the area Friday. About 500 flights were canceled at O'Hare, which canceled 600 flights Thursday and housed hundreds of stranded travelers who spent the night awaiting planes from other cities also affected by the storm.

If you don't have to be out here, don't, Ty Wilson, a very wet Chicago bicycle messenger, said as he stopped along a slushy street between morning deliveries.

The storm brought snow, freezing rain and sleet to the Northeast, where arriving flights at Newark Liberty Airport were delayed as long as three hours Friday afternoon. Arrivals were delayed by 2 1/2 hours at La Guardia Airport, two hours at Philadelphia International and an hour and a half at New York's Kennedy, according to the Federal Aviation Administration's Web site.

Veel sneeuw in Oregon

In de stad Detroit in Oregon op 140 kilometer afstand van Portland is de afgelopen weken veel sneeuw gevallen. Het totaal is opgelopen tot 4 meter sneeuw in 6 weken tijd. In de omgeving is de noodtoestand uitgeroepen. Sinds de kerst valt er constant sneeuw. In deze regio is men wel sneeuw gewend, maar dit jaar valt er bijzonder veel. Bovendien ontstaan er steeds vaker lawines, die belangrijke wegen blokkeren.

Uit de omliggende plaatsen zijn extra sneeuwschuivers aangevoerd, om de straten enigszins berijdbaar te houden. Regelmatig valt ook de water en elektriciteitsvoorziening uit. Voor dit weekend wordt nog eens 60 centimeter sneeuw verwacht.

2 Skiers Missing From Lake Tahoe Resort After Storm Pounds Sierras

Search teams scoured snow-covered slopes on Sunday for two missing skiers who were last seen at a Lake Tahoe resort during a storm that dumped more than 2 feet of snow. A new round of rain and snow arrived Sunday in Southern California, where days of heavy rain and snow last week led to avalanche and traffic deaths, minor floods and landslides.

The skiers Patrick Frost, 35, and Christopher Gerwig, 32, both of San Francisco, were reported missing Saturday night at the Alpine Meadows resort just north of Lake Tahoe, said Placer County sheriff's Sgt. Allan Carter. Frost and Gerwig, described as expert skiers, had last been seen Saturday morning at a resort bar listening to advice about different outlying areas to ski. During the night, the area had temperatures in the 20s, high wind and heavy snow.

While authorities were unsure where they went, Carter said rescuers were searching a wide area that included the back side of Alpine Meadows on the west side of the Sierra crest outside the ski resort's boundaries. Skiers sometimes get to the top of the crest and say the backside looks great and they go down it. Then they can't get back up, he said.

Carter called the skiers' chances of survival "pretty good" as about 15 members of the Alpine Meadows' ski patrol joined a 10-member sheriff's Nordic team in the search for the skiers.
