Wrf.exe issue with 5 domains

I am trying to simulate hurricane rainfall with five domains. Input data is ERA5. Until the real.exe step, everything is running smoothly. I am getting some errors in the wrf.exe step and cannot figure out how to fix them. I attached namelists, error files, and the domain setup.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm not certain, but one issue could be the decomposition of your processors. Because you're using 13 processors, the only multiples are 13 and 1, meaning the processors are dividing the domain into 1 column in the x direction and 13 in the y direction. Can you try to use something more squared? It doesn't have to be a perfect square, but you could try 12 or 16, perhaps. Let me know if that makes any difference.
