Barking Dog Report: HIGH WIND WATCH AND COASTAL FLOODING WATCH

Barking-Dog-ReportI’m crossing my fingers that the current forecasts I’m reading are exaggerating the predictions for Thursday. The coastal flooding is predicted to impact local high tides, causing a 14 ft on Wednesday morning around 8 am and a 14.5 ft on Thursday morning around 9 – 10 am.  Combine this with the high wind watch with possible gusts up to 65 mph and I smell trouble!

If you live on the water along Beach Drive, you might want to make sure you have pumps ready to go and take any actions needed to prepare for potential flooding. Be sure to continue to check the forecast as they do change…hopefully for the better!

Please share this information with your Beach Drive neighbors – they may not be aware of the pending storm.

  TIDE ON WEDNESDAY. MORE SERIOUS AND EXTENSIVE COASTAL FLOODING
  IS POSSIBLE ON THURSDAY IF A DEEP LOW THAT IS SHOWN BY MANY

No Bonfires for the Christmas Ships this Year

2014-12-01_1035UPDATE 12/2/2014: The burn ban has been lifted.  Hoorah!

Apparently the Grinch IS green and eco-friendly. This just in from the City of Seattle:

NEWS RELEASE

Ed Murray, Mayor

Christopher Williams, Acting Superintendent

                                                           

For immediate release

December 1, 2014

Contact:  David Takami 206-684-7241 david.takami@seattle.gov

 

Burn ban in effect: Beach fires prohibited at Golden Gardens Park and Alki Beach Park

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) has issued a burn ban for King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish counties.

For Seattle Parks and Recreation, this means that beach fires at Alki Beach Park, 1702 Alki Ave. SW, and Golden Gardens Park, 8498 Seaview Ave. NW, are prohibited until the PSCAA lifts the ban. Bonfires lit for on-shore Christmas Ship events will also be affected.

The ban, due to stagnant weather conditions and rising air pollution, was issued on November 30, 2014, and will be in effect until further notice. The purpose of a burn ban is to reduce the amount of pollution that is creating unhealthy air.

Violation of the ban can result in a $1,000 fine from the PSCAA.

For more information on burn ban please visit the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency at http://www.pscleanair.org/airq/status.aspx.

The Christmas Ships will be at Alki and cruising past Beach Drive to Lowman Beach on December 13, 2014.

Apartment Fire at 3800 block of Beach Drive

You can smell the smoke in the air. Several fire vehicles are there or en route to what appears to be an apartment building or condo off Beach Drive. Scupper is in route. We hope everyone is okay. More to follow – including a video towards the end of this post (scroll down).

Update 3:27 pm. Here are some photos from Scupper who is on the scene at the fire at 3855 Beach Drive. Beach Drive is currently blocked from all of the fire rescue vehicles. Scupper counts at least 9 firetrucks plus at least a couple paramedics with more on the way.

The hoses ran from Carrol Street near LaRustica for a couple blocks. Scupper counted as many as 20 different types of rescue vehicles at one point.

Scupper reports that some of the fire trucks are leaving now. According to neighbors, it looks like no residents were seriously injured.

4:15 Update: West Seattle Blog reports that a fireman was hurt and was taken to the hospital.

7:30 pm update: One firetruck with crew remains and the fire investigators have recently left the scene of the apartment that caught fire off Beach Drive this afternoon. More information will follow as to the cause of this incident.

Here’s additional coverage from West Seattle Herald.

Sirens and Smoke at 4800 Beach Drive

Sirens screamed down Beach Drive in the wee hours this morning to the call of a fire in a home at 4800 Beach Drive.

4800

Scupper was on the scene and learned that the fire was put out by quick thinking and a garden house before the fire trucks arrived. You can still smell smoke in the air.

Thank goodness nobody was hurt. Back to bed!

Here is the current Seattle City forecast:

Howling Winds in the Forecast Tonight: Barking Dog Report

Barking-Dog-ReportFor those newer to Beach Drive Blog, one of the main reasons why we started this neighborhood site was to help keep the neighborhood informed of potential weather situations. I’m often surprised when neighbors are caught completely off guard or are not prepared for potential flooding. A “barking dog report” is kind of like your neighbors dog that’s barking – it could mean trouble or nothing at all. At the very least, it may serve as a reminder to be prepared for big storms.

So what’s triggering this “barking dog” is that we have wind gusts up to 60 mph in Seattle tonight. Eeee gahds!  We have a HIGH WIND WARNING in effect starting at 8:00 pm tonight and ending at 2:00 am.

From the NWS: A HIGH WIND WARNING MEANS THAT A HAZARDOUS WIND EVENT IS IMMINENT OR OCCURRING.

Check out the current forecast (and be sure to check back as forecast do change).

SUN NIGHT  SW WIND 10 TO 20 KT…BECOMING S 5 TO O 15 KT. WIND WAVES  1 TO 3 FT. A CHANCE OF SHOWERS.

And last… but not least… the tides

2014-10-25_1634

It looks like we may miss any serious flooding (green-water spilling over the bulkhead). Tonight’s high tide is 10.7 ft just before 6:00 pm.  If the strong winds blow in at 8:00 pm, then tides should be around 8 feet (give or take)… however if you add 4 to 6 foot waves to the mix, it could be interesting. The good news is that the tides will be heading down until midnight.

The main reason for the “barking dog” is that if the wind warning lives up to forecast with 60 mph winds, we could see downed tree branches, loss of power, etc. If you have any umbrellas or other potential projectiles outside, you may want to make sure everything is secure.

 

 

 

Vehicle in Puget Sound off Emma Schmitz View Point

Horns are sounding from a vehicle that appears to have drove off Beach Drive at Emma Shcmitz View Point right now. We have called 9-1-1 and the SPD and Harbor Patrol on their way.  The vehicle’s lights are still blinking.

We will update this post when we have more information.

2:58 am UPDATE: Scupper was first on the scene, immediately followed by the SFD. SPD and Harbor Patrol. It appears that the vehicle left Beach Drive without a driver.

A concrete block landed on the passenger side of the vehicle that may have been placed on the gas pedal.

Currently the tide is on the way out.

There is no sign of passengers in or around the vehicle.

LIVE POST: Vessel Rescue from Puget Sound

UPDATE 3:43 PM by Scupper:

DSC_1026

 

This was the scene within a few minutes following the capsized skiff. The two boats (capsized boat on left & small working boat on right) were heading north together off of Beach Drive SW and appeared to be handling the following seas relatively well. The pictured sailboat was sailing in a SE direction just off the 4800 block then abruptly reversed course and ran north to the scene. I assume they may have been alerted by a Mayday call given that a Coast Guard cutter was closing in fast from the west. You can make out the 3 survivors sitting on the hull.

At the time of the incident, the flooding tide was flowing against the 30+ knot gusts around Alki Pt. This along with the shallower waters can get pretty hairy.

Scupper

 

 

Original post below.

The Coast Guard is currently rescuing a small aluminum boat that appears to have flipped over leaving the passengers to scramble on-top of the capsized hull of the boat for safety. It appears that the boat was traveling with another vessel. A second Coast Guard boat has arrived on the scene.

We watched two sailboats just moments ago wrestle the wind and waves. One sailboat looked to be having a terrible time, with ropes and portions of the sail into the sound. They finally dropped their sails and opted to motor away. The second sailboat seemed to navigate the sound a bit better, however, we noticed their sail had tears in it.

UPDATE 2:13 PM: The capsized boat has been left behind. There is a helicopter on the scene now too.  We’re assuming the Coast Guard is trying to figure out how to safely remove the hull. Scupper speculates that the small boat must have been pooped by a following wave.

This is all unfolding south of Alki, about 400 – 500 yards off the shores of Beach Drive.

Nov 15 rescue
UPDATE 2:58 PM: Scupper is at the scene and has heard from a police officer that one person is missing from the boat.

The fire and rescue boat, Leschi, is now involved along with a police boat.

UPDATE 3:11 PM: A person has been retrieved from the Sound and is now in the helicopter.

UPDATE 3:22 PM: The hull is being hooked and it appears that it is attempting to be towed. We’re wondering if the second sailboat that turned back was possibly responding to a distress call?
