The Weather Channel shared on its Twitter feed this impressive animation designed to illustrate the impact of various levels of storm surge. For the curious, Wired has the backstory on How The Weather Channel Made That Insane Storm Surge Animation, describing the technology that made the production of the video possible.

And speaking of storm surges, Etta James’ version of Stormy Weather shuffled up on my Pandora this evening, and it just seemed like it was something I was supposed to share, so here it is:
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
