Rossi to Stay Close to his E-Cats as Irma Bears down on Miami (Update: AR Cannot Post on JONP for Now)

It has been almost impossible not to realize that there is a massive storm — Irma — that has already devastated some Caribbean Islands and is heading towards Florida, still as a category 5 hurricane with winds currently at 175 miles per hour.

The most recent forecast map I have seen from the US National Hurricane Center shows Irma’s current projected landfall to be close to Miami, which is where Andrea Rossi and his team have been working on developing the E-Cat QX. Tonight he made this announcement on the Journal of Nuclear Physics:

Dear Readers:
I decided to remain close to our factory, where probably the hurricane Irma will hit Saturday and Sunday. Therefore I do not know if the internet broadcasting will work: nobody has idea about this.
As a consequence of this consideration, I am not sure if I will be able to publish and respond on this blog next Saturday and Sunday “throughout the ordeal” as Frank Acland wrote hereunder.
If the internet will work, I will do as usual, otherwise I will keep again blogging as soon as the internet will be fixed.
Warm Regards,

Many south Floridians are evacuating the state, but Andrea Rossi has decided to stay close to his his E-Cats. Irma is forecast to make landfall as category 4 Hurricane, so there is a chance for tremendous damage and disruption throughout Miami and much of Florida. I hope that Dr. Rossi, his family and team, along with everyone else in Irma’s path stay safe, and that his work is not too badly interrupted.

UPDATE: (Sept 10, 2017) I received this communication from Andrea Rossi this morning via Skype message:

“We are under very strong winds and raid, with heavy flooding. Please inform on EW that I am not able to access the JoNP for the time being.

I am safe well shielded and working too, but completely insulated.
Hope and patience are necessary.

In this moment Skype is working, but it comes and goes

More goes than comes”

    The Independent
    Irma: Caribbean overseas territories condemn UK Government’s ‘disgraceful’ lack of help as Hurricane wreaks devastation
    The UK Government’s response to Hurricane Irma in British overseas territories has been branded “absolutely pathetic.”
    Dorothea Hodge, the former UK EU representative for the government of
    the Caribbean island of Anguilla, said the UK should invest in
    long-term reconstruction to help the island community.
    She told The Guardian: “It’s absolutely disgraceful that it has taken the whole day for Priti Patel to respond to the worst hurricane we have seen in a British territory since the 1920s.”

  • Why does he not just get the hell out of there ! Forget the damned E-cat !

  • Samec

    Dr. Rossi has fear, that someone may see his E-Cat QX, so he prefer not evacuated himself.
    It told all. There will not 200 licensed robotized factories producing E-Cats (world demand need 200 factories working 24/7/365). What cash-flow may be from “selling heat” ? Very low cash-flow to build another factories.
    And October demo will lowest possible profile, because for Dr. Rossi is more important, taht thousands of CEOs of thousands companies will not sufficiently informed about E-Cat QX qualities. These thousands CEOs will even after demo doing wrong decisions, costs billions of dollars: Built new nuke powerplants, new natgas pipelines, bought power grid companies (as Buffett tried) etc etc. Dr. Rossi loves this.

    Dear Andrea,
    It is obvious enemies abound to see your work’s destruction, especially those who: ”walked according to the course of this world, according to the PRINCE of the POWER of the AIR, the spirit that now works in the (those) children of disobedience:” (Eph 2:2). What his children have not yet been able to do; he is now targeting you directly as ground zero. He does not want your vision for this world to succeed. I and those here (I am sure) will be praying for those remaining in southern Florida but also specifically for you and your team’s family’s safety.
    May God protect and bless you all.

    Thank you for your protection. Don’t worry. I saw much more difficult situations than this.
    I am just working with the E-Cat QX and happy to. Nobody is going to stop us, if our work is useful and well done, as difficult as it might be ( it is ).

    I’m praying for your safety and that of all in Miami, a city that was hospitable to me when I attended the trial, saw the settlement coming down, and saw the joy on all sides that it was over, leaving everyone to pursue their future. All the best, Abd.

    Abd ulRahman Lomax:
    I strongly appreciate your candor.
    Your prayers in this specific situation will be useful not only to me, but to all the Floridians. Let’s hope for the best, after we have prepared for the worse. Anyway now, at the eve of the hit, I am working on the E-Cat QX, albeit I sent away all the rest of the team several hours ago. The hit will arrive tomorrow starting at 3 PM Miami time. I am most curious than worried, though. Never seen anything of the kind before, therefore something will have to be learnt, positive or negative as it might be.
    Warm Regards,

    Don’t worry about blogging, just stay safe. My prayers are with you.

    I dunno about no flooding…Doral is about 6 feet above sea level….and I got to imagine the warehouse is on ground level.

    • US_Citizen71

      He is likely talking about storm surge and Doral is far enough inland to be safe from it. As for rainfall flooding, that rarely happens in most of Florida. The ground is mostly sand water goes away very quickly.

      • nietsnie

        Storm surge at Miami is purported to be at least 9 ft. If Doral is 6 ft. above sea level…

    • Abd Ul-Rahman Lomax

      Doral is not close to the coast. I was staying in Miami, near the court (which is near cost, near Miami Beach), and thought of going out to the warehouse, but it was a pretty long trip. I’d say the warehouse is roughly ten miles from the coast. I would not say there is no risk. There is risk. But wind is probably the biggest risk factor. It’s not known how strong the storm will be, this afternoon, it was expected to strengthen as it approached Florida from the warm waters.

      There are traffic cameras. See The closest I could find to the warehouse showed SR-826 at Northwest 58th Street.

      The warehouse is at 7861 NW 46th Street, Doral, FL, which is about a block west of SR-826, and 11 blocks south of the camera location. That freeway is almost totally deserted. Most of the traffic cameras on that site show largely empty roads, major arteries, like I-95, the route North from Miami.

      Some cameras are not updating, And I saw some to the north on 95 that were obviously wet. Good chance the storm, though, will not be as dangerous as feared. But … some places will be very, very dangerous.

      Rossi made his choice. He may have investigated details of the building. I might have made the same choice myself. He did joke about being more of a hurricane than Irma. I hope not, hurricanes cause a lot of damage!

    • Rene

      I lived in Plantation, friends down by Hialeah, and flooding was a thing during the stormy season. Switch to satellite mode. See all the canals? They do help to move water on heavy rains, but they go over capacity in really big storms, hence flooding. Now zoom outward. See the everglades to the west? When all that water from Irma drops out of the sky, it will be looking to head down eastward.

  • sam
  • Warthog

    Nope….the shown path is for the eye of the hurricane, which means that Miami will be in the northeast quadrant of the storm, which contains the highest winds, heaviest rainfall, and largest storm surge.

  • Rene

    There’s not much need for heat in Florida, so not a big issue. Then again, when the power goes out, he can run one of his working e-cats to cook. He can jerry rig something to generate electricity, even at 5% it will keep his phones charged, maybe run some lights, or, with a filter, light up his condo with the radiance from the e-cat itself. This is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate e-cat power!

    • cashmemorz

      Don’t forget the old saying “How do you know there is an expert in the house? Answer: None of his devices is in working order”.

      Sorry, Andrea Rossi, not meant to be pointed at you. Its just a saying.

      But is true with many experts, that I happen to know of anyways. Like the expert I know who works in IT. He complained to me, who is not very expert in IT, how to make his data safe. The usual way is to make several copies of the important data and keep each copy in different places unconnected to the original data. When I told him this, he again asked how to get that data to all those different places and be sure that the data is safe at each location. Now remember this guy is an expert and working at a massive place where he takes care of tons of data every day over many years and that places trusts him to take care of that data. So when he asked me that I was taken aback by his question and just made off the cuff statement that you have to find people and places that you can trust with your data in case you have a problem with the original location. The expert told me that is the hardest part of keeping data safe, trusting anybody besides yourself.

    Jerry, here is some perspective. That line represents the predicted center of the hurricane. The entire hurricane looks like this:

    I am working .
    We have a tornado now.
    I can see from a small window a very interesting pattern of vortexes produced from some geometries. Very inreresting.
    I am safe, well shielded.
    This morning the force here is higher, winds at 85 miles per hour ( about 135 km/h ).
    Obviously curfew has been ordered. The flooding here is foreseen between 5 and 10 ft ( 1.5 to 3 m ).
    The E-cat QX is hurricane proved now ( he he he ). Things are going to get worse, though.
    Now I got a window of internet, that most of time is disconnected. Sorry if for today and tomorrow I could gave to delay the publication of the comments.
    Warm Regards

    Rossi may have provisions to get through this but if electricity fails then eventually will also water after back up pumping energies exhaust, and even worse sewerage fails not to mention the flooding of the system. It’s not going to be very pretty. And if things get worse still and all people including Rossi are ordered to evacuate, he won’t be able to continue the Sigma 5 test.(A side question here is who is overseeing this test anyway, but then again warranties of the device rest solely on Rossi’s shoulders, so there is the incentive to do it right.) With his team ordered home Rossi is going to have to do all the fix ups himself. He may have the ideas but it’s often others with the practical skills needed to implement these. He has demonstrated endurance in the past, on the running field, stuck behind bars or in a shipping container. Good luck Mr Rossi you can do it again.

    • Abd Ul-Rahman Lomax

      Rossi was not ordered to evacuate from Doral. Evacuations were ordered for zones A, B, and some of C. Doral is not in those high-risk zones. If the building withstands hurricane winds (Cat 3 at present, I think), he should be okay. Power might be off for a few days, I doubt longer than that, given where he is located, relatively high population density.

      I don’t know that there is any “Sigma 5 test.” There is a lot of sloppiness around here around what 5 sigmas means, it normally refers to product reliability based on failure rates of the testing of many devices. Many. One cannot develop the necessary information based on a few tests of long duration. Given how Rossi talks about things, I would take his “Sigma talk” as indicating design intention. It could also have other meanings.

      • Omega Z

        You’re correct that 5 sigma is about the confidence level.
        Also that many think that this process has to be repeated 3.5 million times. But that is not the case. It can be proven through a repetition of mathematical probabilities.

        We know the outcome of flipping a coin 100 times. The more times you go through this process the more confident you can be that it will not fall outside the standard deviation. Of course if it did then no 5 sigma for you. From Rossi’s posts, he has always had at least 3 QX’s in operation and he is closing in on 1 year.

        What we don’t know is exactly what his is checking for robustness whether it be how many times it can be restarted or temperature spiked without the QX failing.

      • Steve D

        Abd, I don’t doubt that you are familiar with the region or have looked into this and that if it’s safe for Rossi to stay then all the better. Let’s hope that Rossi explains the Sigma 5 test or goal as he sees it, maybe as a part of the demonstration. Supposedly there were, perhaps initially, only three quarks in the test or trial and that doesn’t qualify as “many”.
        A bit off topic but here is an example of 10 Sigma. If I’m not mistaken it seems to be a reliability or sensitivity reference and maybe also has something to do with false positives. “We detected 15 bursts above our detection threshold of 10 sigma”

        Dear Mr Rossi,
        Can you explain what you mean by “5 sigma” in the context of the QX? As I recall it means different things if you are talking about reliability (less than one defect in about 4000 units) or the chance of a result occurring by accident (<1 in 3.5million). Are you cycling a QX on and off 3.5 million times? Is that what is needed to claim 5 sigma? Thanks.

        Andrea Rossi
        August 16, 2017 at 7:38 AM
        Colin Watters:
        We are cycling QX with different cycles a number of times that is due to reach Sigma 5 without issues that need more than several hours to be fixed and without exceeding a due frequency. Everytime we find a problem, we do not just fix it, but we make modifications to prevent it to to return. I calculated the parameters that make me sure before accepting the risk to send E-Cats out of home to enjoy their freedom of life. Since they will be dolphins among sharks, they must be genetically modified to be able to kill the sharks that will try to kill them.

    To All concerned about:
    at 6.30 PM Irma is gone from the area around Miami; she moved toward west.
    We have not been damaged, but now we will have to manage the flooding. In my specific situation I did not have any damage or delay and I worked all the time through during these 2 days.
    Unfortunately the hit has been tremendous in the Keys.
    I want to thank all of you that sent explicit or spiritual sustain.

    Selling and setting up portable generators was one of Rossi’s businesses that he sold.

    As to Doral. Are you certain that’s where Rossi is at. While Rossi did some studies of the QX at the 1MW plant, He actually developed the QX at a different facility with different associates..

  • Rene

    Power is spotty but not totally out in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale areas. My friends who live in the area (and are doing OK), told me it is a mess but progress has been made to restore power. I would worry about fumes because commercial gensets in light industrial areas are properly vented. He does not have to handle that issue, the installers did. And do recall he has a ‘factory’ in one of his rooms in his condo, which Is a fine place for a low power device like a quark. He loves to exaggerate.

  • More experimental evidence, courtesy of NASA, of unexpected things happening in a material loaded with hydrogen (deuterium in this case).
    h/t Ahlfors

    Basically they load a material with deuterium, fire a laser at it with energy about 10% too low to cause the deuterium to dissociate, but apparently it does anyway. Gammas, neutrons, transmutations result.

    They rule a bunch of things out and have no explanation for why it’s happening.

    They say the next step is to really nail down the laser energy to make sure it’s not higher than they think it is (even though the checked it in multiple ways this go round, but only to 4 sigma — they want 5).

    Sigmas everywhere you look.
