Garden~ When to plant what & how in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama.

July gardening in Florida is harvesting, keeping the weeds down..North & central FL can still plant a few summer type plants. South FL should plant nothing this month. August is huge planting month for all of FL. So get ready..July is a good month to plan & order seeds for fall & winter plants. Look for a few cloudy cooler hours this month to keep the beds & containers up if you can, makes fall garden go in alot easier.

North FL~ Lima Beans, southern peas (cow, black eyed), okra, eggplant, gourds & watermelon.

Central FL~ okra, southern peas & gourds.

South FL~ Plant nothing.

WATCH: Massive landslide in China caught on video - Daning River boats capsized


Landslide in China
Description
One person is missing and four sustained injuries after a landslide on Wednesday evening in Chongqing Municipality, southwest China. The landslide occurred at 6:40 p.m. on the northern bank of the Daning River, a tributary of the Yangtze River, in Wushan County. Strong waves caused 13 vessels, mostly fishing boats, to sink. An initial check showed all people onboard the anchored ships had gone ashore before the landslide. However, one person, who was on the bank, is unaccounted for and four others were injured, one of whom is in a critical condition, an official with the Yangtze River Navigational Affairs Administration said. The search for the missing is under way. Authorities suspended navigation on the section of the Yangtze near the landslide site to prevent secondary accidents. The Three Gorges hydropower plant is unaffected. China Three Gorges Corp. is monitoring reservoir water levels.

Tornado Warning sirens going off! | Alliance, Ohio | Jun 18, 2015


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bill did as GEOS-5 predicted and thrived on the MCS. Overall there has been more than 500 Local damage Reports in the last 24 hrs across the United States. The MCS brought smaller hail, winds over 60mph & some flash flooding to Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota & Nebraska. Bill has brought continued flooding to Texas and Oklahoma. He spawned a second tornado. The collision seemed to spark some severe storms across the southeast yesterday afternoon with numerous reports of damage, mainly to trees across Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina & some up into Virgina. Lightning hit a house in North Carolina, causing it to catch a fire. There was also scattered wind damage across eastern Tennessee into Ohio.

Today according to the Storm Prediction Center...
An Enhanced Risk of Severe Thunderstorms is Forecast Today and/or Tonight
Scattered severe storms initially with very large hail and a few tornadoes are expected over parts of the northern High Plains this afternoon into evening. This activity is expected to develop into a fast-moving squall line over parts of the Dakotas with intense severe wind gusts tonight.

So far today there has been 4 tornadoes. Two were in Louisiana, One in North Carolina & one in Virgina. 1 3/4inch size hail was reported in both Fletcher & Avery Creek, in WNC. They are having a hail of a summer up there.

Little bit of cursing in there & locals talking of the 2 year old swept away in the night.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Across the United States we have three different types of weather about to collide. There is Tropical Depression Bill From the south, coming through TX & Southeast OK with all it's moist tropical air. That should get pushed long toward the east by an approaching front from the west and it's now well maintained thunderstorm also known as a Mesoscale Convective System, that has caused more some local damage reports so far. Building in the east to road block these first two systems is a high pressure system full of hot air.

Heat Advisories are posted across much of the Southeast United States today as well in the Southwest. Remember to remove all living things promptly when exiting a vehicle.

Peachtree, GA also has a surviving the heat write up.

Across the United States we have three different types of weather about to collide. There is Tropical Depression Bill From the south, coming through TX & Southeast OK with all it's moist tropical air. That should get pushed long toward the east by an approaching front from the west that has caused more local damage reports so far then Bill. Most were from heavy rain and one inch hail, though there also was a rope tornado in Nebraska. Building in the east to road block these first two systems is a high pressure system full of hot air.

Heat Advisories are posted across much of the Southeast United States today as well in the Southwest. Remember to remove all living things promptly when exiting a vehicle.
