Couldn't Stand The Weather
A song that secured heavy rotation on the then-fledgling MTV station, on account of its hefty riff (courtesy of a Lesley-style Fender Vibroverb) and a loveably goofy video, this Double Trouble standard was written by SRV's former bandmates Mike Kindred and WC Clark.

Another outtake which will be familiar to fans from the Sky Is Crying compilation, this third-hand reworking of the Earl King standard Come On is a well-observed version, but not a patch on SRV's other Hendrix covers.
From hurricanes and typhoons causing death, flooding, andproperty damage to polar vortexes bringing record low temperatures, weatherdisasters around the world have made their mark on 2019 and will undoubtedlyecho through the years to come. Widespread power outages can also impactcommunities in relation to these emergencies.
Widespread power outage:Extended power outages impact entire communities when the electricity is shutoff either as a result of weather or other disaster or when planned to avertdisaster. For example, Pacific Gas and Electric shut down power in mid-Octoberto an estimated 2 million customers to decrease the likelihood of equipmentsparking wildfires. The lack of electricity shut down medical devices, spoiledperishable food, and caused economic losses for businesses.
Revised instructionsaim to guide callers to a more survivable situation, ranging from simply movingaway from danger to self-rescue or self-protect situations. More complexadvice, once risks are assessed, may direct the caller to attempt to rescue orstabilize a companion or bystander whose life would likely be lost unless someaction were taken immediately.
Protocol 83: Weather Disasters/Situations is among protocols added in FPDS v7.0. This protocol may be used to accomplish incident triage when the communication center is overwhelmed by calls for assistance during extreme weather or disaster situations. Key Questions open with identifying the type of weather or disaster emergency: Hurricane, Tornado, Earthquake, Flooding, Wind, Snow/Blizzard, Hail/Ice/Freezing rain, MCI, Widespread power failure, and Other. The next Key Question addresses whether anyone is trapped (if so, "How many?" and "Exactly where are they located?"), and Key Question 3 identifies whether anyone is in immediate danger (possible numbers and location). Key Question 4 asks about injuries, and, finally, Key Question 5 gathers information about buildings and structures involved and estimated extent of damages, if appropriate.
Post-Dispatch Instructions (PDIs) direct the caller/bystanders to take action, particularly in a disaster mode compromising immediate response. The PDIs provide a script that underlines the urgency and efforts of 911 and responders in these life-threatening situations. The emergency dispatcher cannot control not predict when the fire department will arrive to provide aid (and the IAED Performance Standards discourages emergency dispatchers from promising or providing false reassurances. As PDIs b,c, and d indicate, survival depends largely on the actions of the caller/bystanders in the absence of an immediate response.
The Lightning and Thunder race groups were combined into one since time was at a premium, with the organizers eager to ensure they got the race in before the weather got worse. As it was, track activities were eventually canceled for the day at 11 a.m. due to track and paddock flooding, nonstop rain and lightning. 350c69d7ab
