Winter storms cause significant damage to the power infrastructure system each year in the United States. These storms leave millions without power for an extended period of time, resulting in substantial economic losses. Utility companies seek to lower restoration costs and better prepare for such events. Therefore, many are investing in decision-support tools such as predictive models. These tools, coupled with industry experience, can aid in pre-storm planning and post-storm restoration activities, thus lowering costs and reducing outage extent and duration. This research developed winter storm impact models for FirstEnergy, an investor-owned utility company headquartered in the Midwestern United States.Specifically, three main objectives were addressed: (1) development and validation of a service territory winter storm impact model for FirstEnergy, (2) development and validation of regionally-defined winter storm impact models for FirstEnergy, and (3) a comparative analysis of the service territory and regionally-defined winter storm impact models.Results from objective 1 revealed that winter storm impact models can be successfully developed and validated using a number of environmental and dynamic covariates. Results also showed that reducing the initial covariate set resulted in similar predictive accuracy as the full model, thus allowing for faster model runtimes and easier maintenance. In addition, it was found that meteorological variables are the most important for predicting winter storm-related damage.Results from objective 2 showed that regional models could be developed with reasonable accuracy. Similar to objective 1, reduced versions of the models performed better in many cases, indicating that a large number of covariates could be removed. In addition, meteorological variables such as ice, snow, and wind parameters were found to be the most influential for predicting winter storm related damage. Lastly, it was found that for most models, medium-scale and large-scale events (i.e. orders > 50) were predicted better than small-scale events.Lastly, objective 3 compared the service territory and regional models using a case study approach. Results showed that for most operating companies, the service territory model performed better. This was likely due to the large sample size when using data from all operating companies. In addition, the varying sizes of each operating company further limited sample size, thus resulting in lower accuracy for regional models. Despite the service territory model performing better in most cases, this comparison did shed light on the importance of regional models, and their future refinement to increase model performance. Expanding the study period could improve regional models. Overall, results showed that the winter storm impact models developed performed well and that the regional models performed better in many circumstances. In addition, these results showed that a large number of covariates can be removed, thus lowering computing time and model maintenance. The results from this research can provide FirstEnergy with a decision-support tool that can be implemented prior to a winter storm event to inform decision makers within the company, thus lowering costs and reducing restoration times.

The weather has always been a favorite topic of conversation. Undoubtedly, someone must have said to Noah, "I thought they said it was supposed to let up on Tuesday." Over a century ago, American essayist Charles Dudley Warner wrote in the HartfordCourant, "Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it." And now with the advent of the 24-hour Weather Channel and high-tech radar and satellite imagery, we have more information about the weather at our disposal than ever before. But what about weather in the past? Is the climate changing? Are the summers hotter now than ever before? Were winters colder when our grandparents were children? In The Pennsylvania Weather Book, meteorologist Ben Gelber provides the first comprehensive survey of 250 years of recorded weather in this state. He reports on noteworthy weather happenings by category (snowstorms, rainstorms, cold and heat waves, thunderstorms, and tropical storms) and places them in historical context. Throughout the book, Gelber clearly defines meteorological terms and explains what creates weather events. The book features appendices and tables containing useful references for average temperatures, precipitation, snowfall, and climate data. It also provides a brief history of the weather watchers who contributed to the state's meteorological records since the late eighteenth century. This volume will serve as a valuable resource for weather professionals, amateurs, and local enthusiasts alike.

From the San Diego wildfires to multi-drug-resistant strains of bacteria, communities are facing an ever-growing list of potential disasters. Some events, like pandemic flu or anthrax attacks, are public health emergencies first and foremost. Hurricane Katrina taught us, however, that lack of planning for the frail, elderly, and impoverished population can turn a natural disaster into a healthcare nightmare and lead to needless death and suffering. Emergency managers and public health professionals must integrate their prevention and response efforts to serve their communities most effectively. The structure of each chapter offers an innovative approach to organizing key information: 1. Case Study or Historical Example 2. Disaster-specific Terms Defined 3. Disaster Description 4. Health Threat (Morbidity and Mortality) 5. Prevention 6. Immediate Actions 7. Recovery or Managing the Aftermath 8. Summary Disasters and Public Health is a crucial tool in planning for and responding to the health impact of any crisis situation. Bruce Clements served over 20 years in the U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard as a Public Health Officer and a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Warfare Defense Instructor, a Hazardous Materials Specialist with an Urban Search and Rescue Team, and as a Safety Officer with a Disaster Medical Assistance Team. He also served as the Public Health Preparedness Director of Missouri in 2006, when the state experienced a record number of disaster declarations. Throughout his years of experience, he frequently needed to track down a variety of references to quickly understand what was needed for an effective public health response in various situations. He has researched and compiled this information on the health impact of a wide range of disasters into one quick reference. Emergency managers can also no longer afford to be surprised by the next crisis that erupts. This book guides planners in both disciplines in preventing tragedies by most effectively preparing and responding when disaster strikes. * Prevent or respond to disasters from terrorism to pandemic flu * Examine the critical intersection of emergency management and public health * Benefit from the author's years of experience in emergency response

The land that is now called Wisconsin has a place in weather history. Its climate has ranged from tropical to polar over hundreds of millions of years--and even today, that's the seeming difference between July and January here. And Wisconsinites have played key roles in advancing the science of meterology and climatology: Increase Lapham helped found the National Weather Service in the nineteenth century; Eric Miller was the first to broadcast regular weather reports on the radio in the 1920s; Verner Suomi pioneered tracking weather by satellite; and Reid Bryson has been a leader in studying global climate change. Wisconsin's Weather and Climate is written for weather buffs, teachers, students, outdoor enthusiasts, and those working in fields, lakes, and forests for whom the weather is a daily force to be reckoned with. It examines the physical features of Wisconsin that shape the state's climate--topography, mid-latitude location, and proximity to Lakes Superior and Michigan--and meteorological phenomena that affect climate, such as atmospheric circulation and air mass frequency. Authors Joseph M. Moran and Edward J. Hopkins trace the evolution of methods of weather observation and forecasting that are so important for agriculture and Great Lakes commerce, and they explain how Wisconsin scientists use weather balloons, radar, and satellites to improve forecasting and track climate changes. They take readers through the seasonal changes in weather in Wisconsin and give an overview of what past climate changes might tell us about the future. Appendices provide climatic data for Wisconsin, including extremes of temperature, snowfall, and precipitation at selected stations in the state. The authors also list sources for further information. Vignettes throughout the book provide fascinating weather lore: o Why there are cacti in Wisconsin o The famous Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys "Ice Bowl" game of 1967 o The Army Signal Corps' ban on the word tornado o Advances in snow-making technology o The decline of the Great Lakes ice industry
