Hurricane Ana Update

Tropical Storm Ana was stalled out this week by a strong trough over the Arcadian mainland, this delayed the landfall, however also strengthened the storm into a major catagory 3 Hurricane. Ana is forcasted to make landfall near the small coastal village of Springfield some time this week.



Wind- 111mph; 96 knots

Pressure- 975 mb

Movement- North at 2 mph

Welcome to Springfield Population 30,000

Springfield is the smallest city in Arcadia and is commonly overlooked because of it's size. Springfield, however, is the most important city because of the power plant that supplies power to every city in Arcadia. The Smelt River Nuclear Power Plant and The LNG Oil and Clean Coal Power Plants work jointly to supply power to the all residents of Arcadia. Springfield is currently in the news because of Hurricane Ana's possible landfall this week in Springfield.


An overview of the city.


A view of the Plant (Notice the coal docks and train depot for unloading oil)


A better view, in painting form, of the train depot


Some local small stores near the heart of Springfield


A photo of downtown which is also refurred to by the locals as "Starbucks Corner"


I will leave you with a picture of a coal mine west of downtown in the Arcadian Countryside.

Hopefully the power plant will fair well in the storm...

Untill next time THANK YOU!

Sounds exciting. I remember a song," That's why I can't believe it was the calm that killed the storm." I can't wait to see.
