AP Explains: How hurricanes unleash lethal storm surges
WASHINGTON (AP) — Behold the awesome power of water. Already the ocean is swallowing beaches, roads and anything else in the way of Hurricane Florence's monstrous storm surge. Storm surges aren't walls of water, like a tsunami, as commonly thought. Caused by a hurricane's winds pushing relentlessly on the shore, they are more like domes of high water that form as the ocean spreads inland. The high water has destructive waves on top, and it comes in addition to normal tides.

Breakfast was being served Thursday morning.
The low, broad sweep of coastal estuary rimming a lobe of Matagorda Bay shore was the larder and kitchen, with the bayou/slough connecting the reach of rich wetlands to the bay serving as the dining room.
The morning’s tide was the waiter, bearing a silvery smorgasbord to a considerable and diverse bunch of hungry customers, most but certainly not all of them wearing fins and scales.

The Latest: Hawaii shipwreck awaits high tide for salvage
HONOLULU (AP) — The Latest on efforts to remove a commercial fishing vessel grounded just off Honolulu's Waikiki beach: (all times local):
Efforts to remove a wrecked fishing vessel off Hawaii's Waikiki beach have been delayed until the next high tide after the ship became stuck during salvage efforts.
The 79-foot (24-meter) commercial fishing vessel grounded nearly two months. Before the Pacific Paradise could be moved, it caught fire and leaked fuel.

Lieutenant John Slusarz said this week that owners must have their dogs on leash at all times in the park, but that Connecticut regulations are specific to land: The town friends off-leash below the mean high water mark, it is only because of technicalities in the regulations.
The National Weather Service says high tide will be a little higher late Monday morning.
It expects high tide to be about a foot higher than usual.
It issued a coastal flood statement for “vulnerable locations” along western Long Island Sound in southern Fairfield and New Haven Counties.
Lawmaker, brother-in-law met rough ocean before drowning
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Authorities say a South Dakota state representative and his brother-in-law encountered high tides and rough seas before they drowned in a kayaking accident last week off an island in the South Pacific.
GREENWICH — The powerful nor’easter that hit Connecticut and the surrounding region on Sunday dumped four inches of rain on Greenwich and brought 60-mile-per-hour winds. But the town managed to avoid major power outages and severe damage like that seen elsewhere in the state.
“With that in mind, Greenwich came out relatively unscathed,” said Emergency Management Director Daniel Warzoha.
In the FBS, we’re at that point in the season in which teams either prove they belong in the playoff hunt or they get put out of it.
Going into the week, there were eight undefeated teams and 19 more with one loss. Last year, after the conference championship games and before the bowls, there were two unbeatens and three one-loss squads.
That’s something to keep in mind as the list of contenders most certainly will get trimmed every week. So, let’s go to the picks:

New documentary ‘Tidewater’ warns of rising sea level threat
LEWES, Del. (AP) — At high tide on a clear day, you can forget about cruising down certain Lewes back roads, Janice Pinto said.
"It's impassible," she said. "It might be a beautiful sunny day, but because high tides are higher than they used to be, it's impassible."
Pinto, a retired schoolteacher from the Philadelphia suburbs, has lived in Lewes for the past 10 years. Within that time, she said, flooding has become an increasingly bigger problem for her and her neighbors.
South-side reservoir at low tide for repairs
Never mind the pursuit of bowl eligibility. A Tulane victory at Florida International on Saturday would be huge just for symbolic reasons.

The Wave was riding high under second-year coach Curtis Johnson after consecutive upsets of Conference USA contenders North Texas and East Carolina and perennial nemesis Tulsa.
GREENWICH — The devastation of this year’s hurricane season on states and islands to the south has local officials pondering the possibility of a major storm hitting Greenwich.

These boats and this place can mean both hope and tragedy for the Rohingya Muslims who are desperate to escape the violence that has engulfed their lives in Myanmar's Rakhine state.
