Niet alleen in Texas zijn overstromingen, maar ook in India

More heavy rain in Western India

Monsoon rains hit early on Tuesday August 29 causing flooding in the
Mumbai and Pune areas with immediate action by local HAMS helping out
during the adverse weather.

All traffic was disrupted, even local trains and buses were submerged
and unable to move. Children stranded in a school were left hungry and
the electricity also went off.

Satish Shah VU2SVS and Ankur Puranik VU2AXN and 50 HAMS involved
arranging food and power for the school. The HAMs of Mumbai were in
touch with each other, even those who don’t have a VHF transceiver. The
‘ZELLO app’ was used to connect those without suitable radio equipment
to interface with a VHF HAM radio frequency.

Many workers were stranded in their offices or at railway stations until
midnight. Looking after the central railway in Mumbai were the Bharat
Scouts & Guides that had undergone previous disaster communication

The recent rain is likely to remain for a while, with schools and
offices closed. All the HAMs are kept on alert by government and local
bodies should their communications be needed.

As Hurricane Harvey approaches the Texas coast in the USA, various nets are activating as part of the emergency response. In addition to tropical and hurricane-force winds along the Texas coast and further inland, the main concern with this storm is heavy rain and flooding in an area which has not has a hurricane make landfall for 9 years.

Many of the frequencies used will be outside Region 1 allocations in 80m and 40m but there are some in 20m which may suffer from European QRM if operators are not careful.

The US National Hurricane Centre station WX4NHC will activate at 1900UTC 25th August on 14.325 MHz

The Hurricane Watch Net is operating from 1500 UTC on their daytime frequency of 14.325.00 MHz. When the 20 meter band closes they are likely to move over to 7.268.00 MHz or from 0000 UTC.

VOIP Hurricane Net likely to activate at 2 PM EDT/1800 UTC on Friday 25th August

The Southern Territory SATERN Net will activate for one day (so far) on Saturday, 26 August 2017 during local daylight hours on its regular frequency of 7.262 MHz.

Radio Amateurs are encouraged to listen carefully before transmitting to avoid QRM to Emergency activities.

Monsoonal rains hit

The eastern side of India was inundated by seasonal monsoon rain with
the major affected area being most of the Bihar state villages.
National Coordinator for Disaster Communication in India, Jayu S. Bhide
VU2JAU, reports that HAMS from East Bengal and Patna were in action
passing messages during the flooding.
The emergency communications helped the National Disaster Response Force
(NDRF) teams. All HAMs assisted in controlling the communication on VHF
The situation was brought under control. The NDRF rescued most of the
people identified by the HAMS in their message handling.
The affected areas now mainly face a problem with drinking water as all
the boring pumps are contaminated due to the flood. Fresh water and food
packets are reaching the flood area.
The monsoonal rain also affected neighbouring Bangladesh but no report
on emergency communications from there had been provided.

Cesar Pio Santor HR2P reports that as Tropical Storm Harvey passed
through the Windward Islands in the Caribbean, the Caribbean Emergency
and Weather Net (CEWN) was activated as flooding was reported in
Barbados along with some houses have losing their roofs.
Jeff, 9Y4J, hopes to provide information in more detail, once more
information is collected on the situation in the area, and also on the
activities that amateurs are doing by the passage of T.S. Harvey on the
islands of the Caribbean.
The CEWN Network uses the frequencies 7,162 kHz and 3,815 kHz according
to propagation conditions.
The storm continues through Central America until Thursday. When a more
detailed report is available from Region 2 I will post it to the website.
