Biden directs federal aid to NY, NJ after deadly flooding

LAMBERTVILLE, N.J. (AP) — President Joe Biden approved major disaster declarations Monday greenlighting federal aid for people in six New Jersey counties and five New York counties affected by devastating flooding last week from the remnants of Hurricane Ida.

At least 50 people were killed in six Eastern states as record rainfall last Wednesday overwhelmed rivers and sewer systems. Some people were trapped in fast-filling basement apartments and cars, or swept away as they tried to escape. The storm also spawned several tornadoes.

Biden is scheduled to visit New Jersey and New York City on Tuesday to survey storm damage, the White House said. The storm killed at least 27 people in New Jersey and 13 in New York City.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, touring flood-damaged areas of Lambertville on Labor Day, said Biden’s major disaster declaration will allow individuals to receive assistance, including grants for temporary housing and home repairs and low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses.

Tropical Storm Mindy forms in the Gulf of Mexico

Tropical Storm Mindy formed in the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday as the 13th named storm of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season.

Mindy was expected to cross the coastline of the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday night, and then move off the coast of the southeastern United States into the western Atlantic Ocean by Thursday.

It was producing maximum sustained winds of nearly 40 miles per hour, with some stronger gusts, the National Weather Service said. Total rainfall of two to four inches was expected, with six inches possible across the Florida Panhandle into southern portions of Georgia and South Carolina through Thursday morning, the Weather Service said.

Some flooding was possible, as were isolated tornadoes over the Florida Panhandle.

Forecasters: Tropical Storm Nicholas forms in Gulf of Mexico

MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Nicholas strengthened as it headed for the Gulf Coast on Sunday, threatening heavy rain and floods in coastal areas of Texas, Mexico and Louisiana.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said tropical storm warnings were issued for coastal Texas and the northeast coast of Mexico. Nicholas is expected to produce total rainfall of 5 to 10 inches (13 to 25 centimeters), with isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches, across portions of coastal Texas into southwest Louisiana on Sunday through midweek.

The storm was expected to bring the heaviest rainfall west of where Hurricane Ida slammed into Louisiana two weeks ago. Although forecasters did not expect Louisiana to suffer from strong winds again, meteorologist Bob Henson at Yale Climate Connections predicted rainfall could still plague places where the hurricane toppled homes, paralyzed electrical and water infrastructure and left at least 26 people dead.

“There could be several inches of rain across southeast Louisiana, where Ida struck,” Henson said in an email.

HOUSTON (AP) — Tropical Storm Nicholas gathered strength Monday and threatened to blow ashore in Texas as a hurricane that could bring up to 20 inches of rain to parts of the Gulf Coast, including the same area hit by Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and storm-battered Louisiana.

Nearly all of the state’s coastline was under a tropical storm warning that included potential flash floods and urban flooding. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said authorities placed rescue teams and resources in the Houston area and along the coast.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said the system’s top sustained winds reached 60 mph (95 kph). If the winds hit 74 mph, the storm would become a Category 1 hurricane. It was moving north at 12 mph (19 kph) on a track to pass near the South Texas coast later in the day, then move onshore in the evening.

In flood-prone Houston, officials worried that heavy rain expected to arrive late Monday and early Tuesday could inundate streets and flood homes. Authorities deployed high-water rescue vehicles throughout the city and erected barricades at more than 40 locations that tend to flood, Mayor Sylvester Turner said.

The human remains found inside a 12-foot alligator’s stomach belong to a man who went missing in Hurricane Ida floodwaters on Aug. 30, a Louisiana coroner said this week.

Timothy Satterlee Sr., 71, was attacked by the gator last month outside their home in the city of Slidell, his wife, who witnessed the attack, previously told authorities.

Nearly two weeks after the attack, authorities captured the alligator believed to be responsible for the attack in the Avery Estates area near Slidell, a city on Lake Pontchartrain across from New Orleans, according to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office.

Once euthanized, the alligator’s stomach contents revealed human remains. On Thursday, St. Tammany Parish Coroner Dr. Charles Preston confirmed in a news release that the remains belong to Satterlee.

The coroner's office used DNA samples extracted from the remain's tissue and compared those to samples from Satterlee's sons. Investigators were able to make an 11-point DNA match with Satterlee’s children.

“For legal purposes, a 16-point match is the general standard,” Preston said in the release. “In this case, given the circumstances, I am satisfied that an 11-point match confirms these are Mr. Satterlee’s remains.”
