Researcher Says 'Armored Shorelines' Contributing to Great Lakes Erosion Issues

Geneva-on-the-Lake continues to experience massive amounts of erosion due to high water on Lake Erie. Dr. Chris Winslow, director of Ohio Sea Grant College Program at Stone Laboratory, says this problem is not unique to Geneva. Winslow says these high amounts of erosion are being experienced across the Great Lakes region and are due to water levels reaching historic highs, as well as a lack of ice coverage. Water levels have been rising over the years as a result of precipitation from both sprin...

New cross-country system to take heavily worn winter storm path

Meteorologists are closely monitoring yet another cross-country snowstorm on the way.

The Coronavirus Outbreak Should Bring Out the Best in Humanity

Pandemics are perversely democratic. They’re nasty, lethal and sneaky, but they don’t discriminate. No matter your age, ethnicity, religion, gender, or nation, you’re a part of the pathogenic constituency. That shared vulnerability, and the resulting human collectivism—a universal response to a universal threat—is newly and vividly evident in the face of the now-global outbreak of the novel coronavirus known as 2019-nCoV. As of writing, there have been over 30,000 diagnosed cases and over 6...

This fast movement will prevent the storm from grabbing much moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. "A large are...

Groundhog weekend storm may chug right along the Eastern Seaboard or veer out to sea

Meteorologists are narrowing down the scenarios of a potential Groundhog weekend storm that they first began monitoring closely late last week -- and a storm track well inland of the East Coast, which could have served up drenching rain in the Appalachians and snow back in the Ohio Valley, is being ruled out.However, a disruptive storm tracking within a couple hundred miles of the Atlantic coast as well as a harmless path out to sea are still possibilities.The exact route and strength of the sto...
