Many old people do not want to evacuate their homes for Irma. Disney World has also closed. And, Joise is coming!

Jose is still a week away from really affecting anyone in the US. It'll be spinning about in the Atlantic much of this week.

Fracking has caused little rumbles.
Good point. I was thinking more about strong quakes, caused by plate activity, tectonic motion etc - and Oklahoma is not in that situation.
As for weaker ones... I remember we had a "quake" - low level signal - due to a planned explosion in a quarry few hundred miles away...

It already is. Effects from Jose are contributing to the severity of flooding in Jacksonville and points north.

I remember 2005. There was Katrina, and then I remember most of the later storms: Rita, Stan, (missed Tammy and that subtropical storm the NHC also missed), the weird hurricane Vince which went to make landfall in... Spain!, then Wilma and the end of the list, so they started using greek letters: α, β, γ, another weird storm "named" δ which hit the Canaries as it became extratropical, and hurricane ε which for some years I thought it was the last storm of the 2005 season until I started to track tropical cyclones and discovered there was yet another storm, ζ! Luckily the year ended with that storm still active, since the next one would have been η, and I wouldn't have liked to see a storm named ETA (This also explains why I ask to refrain from abbreviating both "Estimated Time of Arrival" and "Edited To Add"). 2006 turned out to be the anticlimax, but I remember Gordon.

However other basins have had crazy seasons on other years. 2013 was dull in the Atlantic, and also started slow in the Western Pacific, but from September through November it went really crazy, culminating with typhoon Haiyan and the late tropical storm that follows the big one, Podul (or "Beodeul" as I spell it, since it's a North Korean name and I apply my "One language, one translliteration" policy). The only downside is that Philippines didn't got to use it's auxiliary list (with more names, not Greek letters), they exhausted their main one (Haiyan was Yolanda, Beodeul was Zoraida, had they named another depression it would have been Alamid. Coincidentally they are using that same list this year, with Yasmin in place of Yolanda).

I was only 13 in 2005, but I'll always remember storms Epsilon and Zeta because of this XKCD comic.

Among the celebrity birthdays I share are Hurricanes Katrina and Harvey (both making their first U.S. landfall on August 25th).

Wow, that's crazy.

Another weather-birthday coincidence is that my father's birthday is on April 3rd, and on that very day that he was celebrating his 5th birthday, was in the midst of the massive April 1974 tornado outbreak. My grandparents tell the story often that it was in the middle of the afternoon and my dad was opening his birthday presents and such, but the sky was as dark and eerie as night. Just a few miles away on the other side of Dalton, GA (where I live now, too) there was a tornado that completely leveled my great aunt's house (grandmother's sister) out in the country. There is actually video footage of that on home videos that I have been able to see. My dad and his family rode out all the storms after the birthday party in another great aunt's house close by that had a basement.

How? The storm is quite a bit aways, and outside of maybe some surf and rip current risk it shouldn't really be affecting the flooding in Jacksonville. Looks like Irma did much of the damage on top of the high tide influence. If anything, an increased flood threat from Jose surf would be concerning starting around Thursday or Friday when it gets closer to the coastline

Simply put, I gather its winds are pushing the Atlantic towards that part of the coast, hindering the St Johns River's attempt to drain into it.

That could be, high tide going against draining rainwater. It'll be interesting then towards the weekend when Jose is a little closer offshore to see the tidal effects

Thwre was a stationary front over northern Florida before Irma.  There was a lot of rain from that, coupled with the wind keeping St Johns River from draining into Atlantic.

St Johns River is tidal  all the way to at least Palatka. Its a very slow moving to begin with.. Water sloshes around in the lower basin.

Point being, it's not jut one thing (if it were, this would have been predicted with precision). But point also being, "effects from Jose are contributing…"

Nate is entering post-tropical status...the National Hurricane Center has stopped providing updates for the storm. What remains of the storm should be entering Canada late Monday night/Early Tuesday morning.
