Power Out In Iqaluit, Nunavut - 135km/hr Blizzard Winds Reported!
Pray for those hunkered down in Iqaluit, NU the power has gone out and they are in the middle of a super blizzard with 140km wind gusts.The forecast says its only just started in Iqaluit and these winds (120 to 140 km/hr) will last for 2 days!
Kayaking, bird watching, fishing and wildlife photography are my summer hobbies when waiting for storms. See my adventures on YouTube!
I build a daily map of storm risk for the Canadian Prairies to accomplish two things. One, translate the complications of the meteorologists into something simple that the public can understand clearly. Two, become a buffer on social media to either raise the alarm and calm the masses depending on the level of hype.
Storm chasing is limited nowadays to a few photo ops by the lake at Wascana in Regina or up north at Pratt. Generally, I spend more time nowcasting for chasers around Saskatchewan which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.
Once storm season comes to an end in August, gaming season then begins. Find me on Twitch.com/jaredmysko playing non-violent games like Forza and FIFA.
Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
