    SEATTLE -- Strong wind gusts, approaching 60 mph in some areas, toppled trees and took down power lines on Sunday morning. In Seattle, more than 50,000 customers were in the dark by 2:30 a.m. according to Seattle City Light. By afternoon, crews were still working to restore power for roughly 6,000 City Light customers. Outages ballooned in cities to the south of Seattle, and on the Eastside, where Puget Sound Energy's outage map showed a combined total of nearly 220,000 customers affected early on.

    The tropical depression, locally named Usman, brought heavy rains on Saturday, causing catastrophic flooding and triggering deadly landslides, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management agency said Monday. In its latest official update, the agency said the death toll had climbed to 75 with a further 12 people injured. At least 16 others are still missing in the regions of Bicol and Eastern Visayas, officials said.

    Powerful Solar Storm Likely Detonated Sea Mines During Vietnam War By Brett Carter | November 9, 2018 3:46 pm Solar flares captured on sun. (Credit: NASA/SDO)On Aug. 4, 1972, the crew of a U.S. Task Force 77 aircraft flying near a naval minefield in the waters off Hon La observed 20 to 25 explosions over about 30 seconds. They also witnessed an additional 25 to 30 mud spots in the waters nearby.Destructor sea mines had been deployed here during Operation Pocket Money, a mining campaign launched in 1972 against principal North Vietnamese ports.There was no obvious reason why the mines...

    “And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were...
  • NASA to soon end active efforts to restore contact with Opportunity

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — NASA expects to soon end efforts to contact the Opportunity Mars rover, silent for more than four months after a major dust storm, but will continue to listen for signals from the spacecraft for months to come. Opportunity, which has been on Mars since January 2004, last contacted Earth June 10. A powerful globe-spanning dust storm blocked the sun and deprived the rover of solar power, putting it into a low-power mode. On Sept. 11, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said that the optical depth, a measure of the haziness of Martian skies, had dropped to a level...

    CNN’s Van Jones was the guest on Thursday’s The View where he plugged his primetime weekend show aimed at bringing together conservatives and liberals. While he mostly argued the haughty Michelle Obama-esque “When they go low, we go high” approach for the left, host Sunny Hostin badgered him for that take, saying anything less than hostility to Trump voters was being “complicit.” The lengthy segment started with the guests naturally asking Jones what he thought about the White House banning his colleague Kaitlan Collins from the Rose Garden yesterday. He blasted the action, saying she did the right and only...
  • 2 Atlantic storm systems have 'medium' chance of development

    The National Hurricane Center said Wednesday evening (July 4) that two areas of tropical weather in the Atlantic Ocean have a "medium" chance of developing into more organized systems over the next two to five days. An area of low pressure west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, a few hundred miles south of Bermuda, features disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Conditions favor the formation of a tropical depression before the end of the week as the system moves west-northwestward and then northward between Bermuda and the U.S. East Coast, according to the National Hurricane Center. Chances for the system to organize...

    American Airlines Flight 1897 met a storm from hell on Sunday. Strong updrafts tossed the aircraft and thick hail battered its body. The incredible pictures of the plane's destroyed nose captured the world's attention. Meanwhile, though, observers on the ground captured another wild visual: the flight's meandering real-time path as pilots tried to navigate around the worst of the monster storm.

    Tuesday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” former Obama administration green jobs czar and network contributor Van Jones blamed the ”moral collapse inside of our political system” for Roseanne Barr’s derogatory tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. Jones said, “Some things apparently are more important than money, even to a big corporation like ABC-Disney, and that is very heartening because we’ve been in a moral freefall for at least three years. To my point of view, one of the great things is — it is, in fact, important that red-state America be better represented in the media. But they can have a...

    GENEVA — An unexpected snowstorm coupled with high winds killed four climbers in the Swiss Alps and left five others in critical condition early Monday after they became trapped overnight and couldn’t reach shelter, officials said. A total of 14 hikers from France, Germany and Italy were left stranded in the Pigne d’Arolla region, police in southwestern Valais canton said. Authorities deployed seven helicopters as part of rescue efforts. The climbers were caught off-guard by high winds, snow and bitter cold, and were forced to spend the night outdoors, Valais police spokesman Markus Rieder said.

    Pray your power stays on and get ready for some heavy rain, maybe even a thunderstorm or two. That's the second chapter of Ice Storm 2018 as it circles through the Buffalo Niagara region this weekend. As the frontal boundary that brought the ice and sleet to Western New York over the last 18 hours or so treks northward today, the mixed precipitation and freezing rain will change over to all rain, the National Weather Service said. It could be heavy at times.

  • The Winter Storm Slamming The East Coast Is Becoming A 'Bomb Cyclone' — NWS - 'Life Or Death'

    Business Insider ^ | 3-2-2018 | Kevin Loria
    At the start of 2018, a nor'easter winter storm intensified so quickly that it became what meteorologists call a "bomb cyclone." It appears that's happening again. Winter storm Riley, as the Weather Channel has named it, is bringing potentially record-setting flooding to the Northeast, dumping rain and snow, and whipping the East Coast with wind gusts that are expected to reach hurricane force. The storm is now undergoing a rapid intensification process called "bombogenesis," which means its central pressure is dropping quickly (an indicator of a storm's strength). Such bomb cyclone conditions are not uncommon for nor'easter storms. But this...

  • HOW ‘THE STORM’ BECAME THE BIGGEST FAKE NEWS STORY OF 2018

    02/15/2018 11:17:43 AM PST · by MNDude · 70 replies
    Wild conspiracy theories have a way of seeping into public discourse these days, thanks in part to the divided nature of U.S. politics, the growth of websites that actively promote them, such as InfoWars, and the capacity for fake news to spread virally on social media without any fact-checking or oversight. Enter “Q.” In late October, just days before a different InfoWars-inflated conspiracy—about anti-fascist protesters plotting a civil war—was about to fizzle, a user identified as Q on the imageboard website 4chan started posting vague, portentous messages related to an approaching “storm.” The user claimed to be a high-level government...

    Blind-eye [CLAS 23-41] Co-conspirators get support in Congress from Charles Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Adam Schiff. Co-conspirators focus on reliable agencies capable of handling classified information. Recruited into conspiracy are CLAS-1 DNI, CLAS-2 CIA, CLAS-3 DOJ, CLAS-4 FBI, CLAS-5 Ranking Member Senate Intel, CLAS-6 Ranking Member Senate Judiciary. QAnon suggests the Democratic coup d’état’s penetration of U.S. “Deep State” intelligence network was extensive. These were the 17 intel agencies Clapper said agreed with the DNI assessment that Russia intervened in the U.S. 2016 presidential election.
