Hurricane Florence–The Myths and The Facts

The blog post title speaks for itself. Alarmists can’t accept natural variation, so use false logic to try and claim that any weather characteristic which wasn’t exactly like the last few hurricanes must be somehow man-made.

    Florence Update: One GW of Solar Capacity Went Offline after Historic Storm
    By Jennifer Runyon

    Duke energy issued a fact sheet on Thursday outlining the damages that Hurricane Florence caused to the 3,000 MW (3 GW) of solar capacity connected to the Duke Energy system in North Carolina.

    According to Duke, at peak solar outages, 1 GW of solar capacity was not available to the system. Of that 1 GW, 100 MW was Duke-owned solar capacity and the rest was either taken offline or tripped off during the storm (either grid or facility related).

    Today, roughly 800-900 MW of solar capacity is still offline but some is starting to come back online. Duke offered no timetable for full restoration of solar assets.

    Most of the offline sites are in areas that experienced extreme flooding.

    Here in Alamance county, North Carolina we dodged a bullet. Less than 40 mph winds and five inches of rain spread over four days.

    This is “Weather” rather than “Climate Change”:
