          Move to Raleigh/Charlotte NC      Cache   Translate Page      
Attempting to move to new city to be closer to family. Was looking into Raleigh/Durham or Charlotte. I am a UX designer with 4 years experience and have had a few out of state phone interviews but no bites so far, which I believe are due to being out of state.

If we moved to say, Raleigh and I got in touch with a temp agency, I am thinking I could get something quickly that would at least establish myself and family in the city.

What are your thoughts on how risky this is? My wife is really adamant I get a job first, but I am of the opinion that I could get something in the first month or so of moving to town. I have been trying for about 3 months to get a gig there but have only applied to about 10-12 positions.

Has the job market improved enough to where just moving somewhere somewhat blindly if necessary could work and get settled in? Seems there are tons of applicants for every job and thus not being local is a huge strike against me.

          Why Is The Government Buying Dead And Dying Malls?       Cache   Translate Page      

For the past year, we've covered the epic collapse of shopping malls - the crowning achievement of the 1980's retail model - with mall vacancies hitting a six-year high in July. 

Once vacant - or nearly vacant, these once-vibrant malls have become a blight on local communities across the country - driving down nearby property values as we're reminded why Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is the richest man on the planet. 

The solution? Local municipalities are using land banks; government-backed or quasi-public entities typically used to buy derelict homes, to snap up the dead malls, reports the Wall Street Journal

“As we recovered from the recession, the market has reabsorbed some properties but not in the smaller communities that never recovered,” said Frank Alexander, co-founder and senior adviser of the Center for Community Progress, which promotes land banks. “In those places, we’re getting more questions about how to deal with abandoned shopping centers.” -WSJ

In May, the Springfield, Ohio Clark County Land Reutilization Corp bought the Upper Valley Mall for $3 million, after J.C. Penny and Macy's closed their stores in 2015, while other stores such as Sears and Foot Locker have continued to operate. 

“Nothing was being done in our opinion,” said Thomas Hale, Clark County land bank executive director. “This is just one project we felt we had to protect.” 

Hale says he's in talks with potential investors to redevelop the mall into a mixed-use site which would include housing, a soccer field and a smaller retail presence

In other instances, governments opt to get rid of retail entirely. The City of Memphis purchased Raleigh Springs Mall and demolished it last year to build a new community center. The $28 million Raleigh Town Center, which will have a library, police and traffic precinct, an 11-acre lake and a skate park, is slated to be completed June 2019. -WSJ

And while malls in rich neighborhoods are doing just fine, growing government involvement with shopping centers in poorer areas is yet another sign that private investors may be losing interest in the vacant properties, even at fire-sale prices. 

“It’s a new issue,” said Thomas Dobrowski, executive managing director of capital markets at Newmark Knight Frank - a real-estate services firm. “When a mall gets to a point of no return and when no private buyer is willing to reinvest in it, it comes down to the value of the dirt.”

That said, it's not always easy for governments to snap up the dead and dying properties - as malls have giant footprints which make it tough to propose alternate uses. 

For big boxes in particular, there are limited uses of that space,” said Michele Wildman, executive director at Genesee County Land Bank, which is currently listing 58 commercial properties for sale - including a 101,900 sqft former Kmart store. The lack of windows and giant footprint have made it difficult to do much with it. 

Redevelopment plans can also lose traction if city council members and residents can't agree on proposed new uses, while multiple owners and multiple buyers can hinder deals as well. 

That said, many municipalities have forged ahead with their plans; 

The petition sped up negotiations for a deal between the remaining owner and the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, which had been acquiring pieces of the mall since 2015. The development board bought the final piece eventually. It is now in talks with a developer who has plans to demolish the current building and develop a logistics center there. -WSJ

“I’m hoping we can move it along for the community,” said Sheila Sweeney, chief executive officer at St. Louis Economic Development Partnership. “People really want something to happen, but right now it’s sitting there decaying.


          "A Life Changing Event": 3 Million To Lose Power, Hog Farmers Panic As Hurricane Set To Smash Into Coast      Cache   Translate Page      

With Hurricane Florence barreling down on North Carolina, local industries - especially hog farmers - are preparing for the worst. Meanwhile, millions are at risk of losing power as they brace for a historic weather event.

According to David Fountain, Duke Energy’s president for North Carolina, up to 3 million homes  and businesses are at risk of losing power as a result of the hurricane, which in a worst case scenario would come onshore at Wilmington, North Carolina and move through Raleigh, Greensboro and Charlotte.

Natural devastation aside, there is the crippling impact the storm will have on local businesses: one of the biggest industries in the storm's path is hog farming. Hundreds of farms are in the direct path of the hurricane and are scrambling to prepare for its impact by stockpiling feed and moving their livestock, according to this Wall Street Journal article. Preparations to manage millions of gallons of hog waste are also underway. 

The worst case scenario for North Carolina, with its 2,100 hog farms and 9 million pigs and hogs, would be to cripple the local hog farming industry. The potential devastation for hog farmers would be a deja vu to what happened after Hurricane Floyd struck in 1999. The result was the destruction of many farms, including flooding, dead livestock and waste leaking into waterways.  

Preparations for the worst have been aided by a dry summer which has, in turn, kept waste lagoon levels low. Power is also of the essence, because farmers are at risk of losing livestock if their barns can’t be ventilated.

Still, some are optimistic: the CEO of the North Carolina Pork Council, Andy Curliss, believes that farmers will be prepared this time around: "They’ll deal with what’s thrown at them,” he told the Wall Street Journal. 

Gaye Crowther owns a farm outside of Tabor City, N.C, and is getting ready by purchasing fuel for generators and actively managing her waste lagoons. She’s also filling feed bins with corn and soy beans in an amount that should give animals two weeks worth of food to eat. In addition to worrying about the livestock, she also has to worry about her 29 employees.

“It's stressful. You’ve got the people that work for you that need to be safe. You’ve got the hogs that you want to take care of.”

Another example is Goldsboro Milling from Goldsboro, N.C., which is also stockpiling feed. This is what the director of human resources told the WSJ:

 “We actually have a war room where we’ve got people from the production side and logistics so they can identify farms that are running low on feed.”

Smithfield Foods said that it is going out of its way to protect workers and animals at it’s 250 farms that it owns, as well as at the 1500 contract farms it has. Like the others, they are also monitoring and lowering waste levels.

The waste lagoons in North Carolina have often been a point of contention for environmentalists, as there are more than 4,000 of them in the state and they each often hold "millions of gallons" of manure. In 1999, six lagoons saw breaches, which resulted in waste moving into the water supply. The state ended up buying 43 farms, including 100 lagoons that were located in flood planes.

In 2016, the state saw a similar, but less disastrous outcome in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. There was a partial breach of one lagoon that hadn’t had hogs near it for years.

And here is the problem: Curliss told the WSJ that lagoons across the state can handle 25 inches of rain. But according to forecasts from the National Hurricane Center, 40 inches could be expected from Florence.

Independent surveyors will reportedly be out looking at farms over the next couple of days to measure what impact this hurricane will have. People like Will Hendrick, who is a staff attorney with the Waterkeeper Alliance, also went out and surveyed after events like Hurricane Matthew. Back then, he found that floodwaters in eight counties had infiltrated 10 hog farms and 14 lagoons that hold millions of gallons of waste.

Meanwhile, assuming they are not drinking pig shit, local residents may have bigger problems as they remain in the dark for weeks. Duke Energy said it was mobilizing about 20,000 workers to help with keeping power on during the storm. Mollie Gore, a spokeswoman for Santee-Cooper told Bloomberg that "it may take days" before line workers are able to start getting power restored, telling them “We can’t get a bucket truck out there when tropical storm winds are still blowing.”

Duke Energy's president told Bloomberg: "This is no ordinary storm, and people could be without power for a very long time -- not days but weeks. Hurricane Florence will be a life changing event for many people in the Carolinas."

Investment fuels company leadership in delivering converged security
and monitoring solutions for enterprises adopting containers and
microservices SAN FRANCISCO (BUSINESS WIRE)

Sysdig,

, the cloud-native intelligence company, today announced it

raised $68.5 million in series D funding, led by Insight Venture

Partners, with participation from previous investors, Bain Capital

Ventures and Accel. This round of funding brings Sysdig’s total funding

to date to $121.5 million. Sysdig will use the funds to extend its

leadership in enabling enterprises to operate reliable and secure

containerized infrastructure and cloud-native applications.

Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Sysdig, authored a

blog

post with more information on Sysdig’s funding

.

Sysdig offers enterprises the first unified approach to container

security, monitoring, and forensics. Unlike traditional approaches, the

Sysdig

was built with an understanding

of the modern DevSecOps workflow across Kubernetes, Docker and both

private and public clouds. Sysdig’s open source forensics technology, Sysdig ,

and its open source security project,

Sysdig

, have a community of millions of users, and provide the

foundation for a rich, commercial product set. Dozens of Global 2000

enterprises are Sysdig customers today, including many of the world’s

largest financial institutions, media companies, cable companies,

technology companies, and government agencies.

451 Research predicts the cloud-enabling technology market to grow to

$39.6B through 2020, and containers are predicted to be the fastest

growing segment of that market at 40%. Gartner predicts that “by 2020,

more than 50% of global organizations will be running containerized

applications in production, up from less than 20% today.” 1

“As enterprises accelerate their move to cloud-native applications, they

recognize the need for a new breed of solutions that will enable them to

meet performance, reliability, security, and compliance requirements,”

said Richard Wells, Managing Director at Insight Venture Partners.

“Sysdig’s novel approach of tapping an entirely new data source that

provides both security and monitoring for container-based applications

has proven more effective, more scalable, and higher ROI. That

significant technological advantage combined with an experienced

management team led by CEO Suresh Vasudevan gives Sysdig a strong

position in the marketplace and we are excited to welcome them to the

Insight portfolio.”

Sysdig launched

Sysdig

in October of 2017, cementing the Sysdig Cloud-Native

Intelligence Platform as the only solution to offer unified security,

monitoring, and forensics with native Kubernetes and Prometheus

integration for containers and microservices. Last quarter, Sysdig

expanded on the deep container visibility Sysdig provides to create

Sysdig Secure 2.0, which brings

vulnerability

to cloud-native environments and microservices for enterprise customers.

Sysdig Secure is the first container security offering to take a

data-driven approach across all aspects of the container lifecycle.

“Enterprises are adopting cloud-native technology for its speed of

development, multi-cloud scaling capabilities, and lower total cost of

ownership,” said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Sysdig. “But, they are hitting

roadblocks with old school security and monitoring products. To be

successful, these organizations need new solutions that are

cloud-native. Sysdig has emerged as the only solution that delivers

enterprises the complete set of capabilities needed to protect an

environment, ensure that it is running smoothly, and meet compliance

requirements. Sysdig delivers it all, both in the cloud and on-premise,

in order to grow with companies as they undertake this journey.”

This round of funding further accelerates the strong momentum and rapid

growth Sysdig has experienced over the last year. Downloads of Sysdig

Falco have roughly tripled over the last 12 months and active users of

the Sysdig SaaS offerings have grown nearly six times year over year.

Last month, Sysdig opened a second headquarters in Raleigh, North

Carolina to keep up with company growth while the company also continues

to scale its offices in San Francisco, Belgrade, and London.

In addition to its global growth, Sysdig has expanded its executive team

with the hiring of

Suresh

in April and

Larry

last month. Sysdig

continues to deliver on its commitment to leading the industry by

collaborating with the Cloud-Native Computing Foundation, the PCI

Security Council, and industry partners and by contributing to the

development of security recommendations for modern infrastructure.

San Francisco-based Sysdig announced today that it has raised $68.5 million in venture capital as the company rides a wave that is changing the way applications are built for the internet.

The funding round was led by Insight Venture Partners, and also included Bain Capital Ventures and Accel. Sysdig has now raised a total of $121.5 million.Sysdig says it will use the money to expand its products and services that target the growing adoption of cloud-native computing development.

“Enterprises are adopting cloud-native technology for its speed of development, multi-cloud scaling capabilities, and lower total cost of ownership,” said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Sysdig, in a statement. “But, they are hitting roadblocks with old school security and monitoring products. To be successful, these organizations need new solutions that are cloud-native.”

In recent years, developers have begun embracing a method of writing applications for cloud-based services using containers. Rather than writing one massive piece of software, features and services are broken up into self-contained units that can function on their own. The goal is make it easier to move features across different clouds, and to keep overall performance more stable.

But adopting this philosophy has also meant that new software and services must be created that are optimized for the same environment. Launched in 2013, Sysdig offers a platform to monitor containers’ performance and security. The system works with such critical cloud-native services asKubernetes and Docker.

In the press release, the company noted that downloads of one of its main services has tripled over the past year, just one example of the explosive interest in this new developer movement. Sysdig also said it opened a second headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina, last month, and plans to continue expanding other offices in Belgrade and London.

“It's stressful. You’ve got the people that work for you that need to be safe. You’ve got the hogs that you want to take care of.”

Another example is Goldsboro Milling from Goldsboro, N.C., which is also stockpiling feed. This is what the director of human resources told the WSJ:

 “We actually have a war room where we’ve got people from the production side and logistics so they can identify farms that are running low on feed.”

Smithfield Foods said that it is going out of its way to protect workers and animals at it’s 250 farms that it owns, as well as at the 1500 contract farms it has. Like the others, they are also monitoring and lowering waste levels.

The waste lagoons in North Carolina have often been a point of contention for environmentalists, as there are more than 4,000 of them in the state and they each often hold "millions of gallons" of manure. In 1999, six lagoons saw breaches, which resulted in waste moving into the water supply. The state ended up buying 43 farms, including 100 lagoons that were located in flood planes.

In 2016, the state saw a similar, but less disastrous outcome in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. There was a partial breach of one lagoon that hadn’t had hogs near it for years.

And here is the problem: Curliss told the WSJ that lagoons across the state can handle 25 inches of rain. But according to forecasts from the National Hurricane Center, 40 inches could be expected from Florence.

Independent surveyors will reportedly be out looking at farms over the next couple of days to measure what impact this hurricane will have. People like Will Hendrick, who is a staff attorney with the Waterkeeper Alliance, also went out and surveyed after events like Hurricane Matthew. Back then, he found that floodwaters in eight counties had infiltrated 10 hog farms and 14 lagoons that hold millions of gallons of waste.

Meanwhile, assuming they are not drinking pig shit, local residents may have bigger problems as they remain in the dark for weeks. Duke Energy said it was mobilizing about 20,000 workers to help with keeping power on during the storm. Mollie Gore, a spokeswoman for Santee-Cooper told Bloomberg that "it may take days" before line workers are able to start getting power restored, telling them “We can’t get a bucket truck out there when tropical storm winds are still blowing.”

Duke Energy's president told Bloomberg: "This is no ordinary storm, and people could be without power for a very long time -- not days but weeks. Hurricane Florence will be a life changing event for many people in the Carolinas."

          Mid-Atlantic retailers and suppliers brace for Hurricane Florence      Cache   Translate Page      
City Bicycle Co.’s Southport location was due to open this week. Photo: Matt Jones.

SOUTHPORT, N.C. (BRAIN) — Tuesday was supposed to be the grand opening for Matt Jones' second store, which is in this community near the mouth of the Cape Fear River. Instead, Jones spent the day boarding up the new location of City Bicycle Co. ahead of Thursday's expected arrival of Hurricane Florence.

"We're not being evacuated yet, but it's already started to look like a ghost town here, even three days out," Jones said. The mayor of Southport — a quaint town that has been used as the set for many a TV series and movie — ordered all visitors and tourists to evacuate the town Monday. Residents are supposed to leave Wednesday.

Retailers up and down the coast of North and South Carolina and into Virginia and Maryland were boarding up this week as the Category 4 storm bears down. More than 1 1/2 million people have been ordered to evacuate coastal areas ahead of the storm, which could place normally dry land under as much as 10 feet of water. The National Hurricane Center predicts the storm will hit the coast Thursday or Friday and said Florence will remain "an extremely dangerous major hurricane through landfall."

A Hurricane Watch has been declared from Edisto Beach, South Carolina, north to the Virginia/North Carolina border. Some Virginia beach areas also are being evacuated and the mayor of Washington, D.C., and the governor of Maryland have declared states of emergency.

Jones said shipments to the area have already been delayed, so opening his new store properly would have been a challenge in any case.

"We have a lot of inventory in UPS limbo. Everything is jacked up because of the storm," he said.

Jones opened his first store, City Bicycle Co., in nearby Wilmington about two years ago. He said he expects that store to be closed starting Wednesday. The Wilmington store is in an old building that has survived many a storm, so Jones is not overly concerned.

Jones also said he has confidence in his insurance.

"You never know until you have to use it. I've never made a claim; I've just been paying in. Hopefully I won't have to make a claim this time but I'm glad I got it."

Another Wilmington store, Bike Cycles, was open Tuesday but will evacuate Wednesday, operations manager Kyle Mathews said.

Mathews said the plaza where the shop is located is shutting down so there was no choice to stay. The store is located about five miles from the coast but only about three miles from the intracoastal waterfront.

"It went from everyone stocking up on supplies to just getting out of town," said Mathews, who has worked for Bike Cycles for about three and a half years. "Most are heading to Raleigh and Charlotte. We're going to put sandbags at the door and will probably be able to get back in and check on it Friday night."

Mathews anticipates there will be flooding and massive destruction to houses and power lines. The Barrier Islands, which lie just off the coast, are under mandatory evacuation.

"We're in better shape than they are, if you do live out there, you better take what you want to keep and get out," said Mathews, who doesn't live on the islands and will wait until Wednesday morning to decide whether he's evacuating.

Mathews said this the first time Bike Cycles, which is a Specialized retailer that employs eight people full time, has weathered a storm of this magnitude since it opened 12 years ago. The area is a popular beach destination, and the shop does a hefty cruiser and fat bike rental business in the summer.

Down the coast in Charleston, South Carolina, the staff at Charlston Bicycle Company, the city's oldest bike shop, was preparing to close early Tuesday and likely remain closed Wednesday.

"We'll just play it by ear and hold down the fort," service manager Jeff Moore said. "We've boarded up the store in the past, but we're still playing it by ear. We have wood at an off-site location that we can always bring up here if we really need to. We all live pretty close, so we can get here and guard the shop if we need to."

The accessory brand and distributor Serfas has a third-party warehouse in Wilmington, which closed Tuesday, said Erik Braucht, the general manager of the Arizona-based company. "They shipped everything we sent (Tuesday) but ... Fedex informed them no pickups after tomorrow. The building has weathered big hurricanes before and the product is insured so it is mainly keeping the staff safe and with their families so they are closing the rest of the week as of end of day today," Braucht said. 

Defeet is hopeful

Sock maker Defeet International is based in Hildebran, North Carolina, far from the ocean. But company founder Shane Cooper said he was preparing for a major storm. "Cat 4s do not mess around," he said. Cooper well remembers Hurricane Hugo, which hit the area in September 1989, leading to about 30 deaths in South Carolina and billions of dollars in damage to the region.

"It was terrible. The problem was the aftermath, trees were down everywhere and if my memory serves me correct no power for like 15 days. I didn’t even have running water. Surviving the winds and rain is the first wave, the next wave last a long time. It was hot and muggy with no AC. No cold beers, no hot food. Fallen trees shut down most roadways. The root systems get saturated and wind will topples them," he told BRAIN. 

For Florence, Defeet has prepared generators to run phone, servers and computers, and headlamps to pick orders. "We hope to have no interruptions. We will cover all our work stations with plastic and make sure they are away from windows," he said. 

"Our hopes are that Florence heads back out to sea," he said. "But we must prepare for the worst. This is a very serious storm, I hope folks heed the warnings and find shelter. Not sure how many times I said hope, but we sure have a lot of it."Toby Hill

Bill Nye on hurricanes: "This is not in anybody's best interest to continue to deny climate change"

   
   Cache   Translate Page      

[BEGIN VIDEO]

DONALD TRUMP: The safety of the American people is my absolute highest priority. We are sparing no expense. We are totally prepared. We're ready. We're as ready as anybody's ever been.

[END VIDEO]

KATY TUR (HOST): President Trump says FEMA is ready for Hurricane Florence, but mounting evidence suggests it could be incredibly difficult to deal with this disaster if climate change deniers are on the front lines of emergency response.

A new study from Princeton University and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA, is echoing the findings of previous research showing climate change as the cause of warmer ocean conditions that produce fast, intensifying storms like hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. In fact, NOAA is now warning that the waters ahead of Hurricane Florence are roughly three degrees Fahrenheit above average.

But where does the Trump administration stand on climate change? Well, just yesterday, President Trump rolled back Obama-era mandates blocking rogue methane leaks from oil and gas wells. Last month, the EPA weakened a rule limiting carbon dioxide pollution from coal-fired power plants. And in July, the agency reduced regulations capping greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles. These rules were all part of Obama's three-part strategy for combating climate change.

Joining me now to discuss, host of Bill Nye Saves the World, and the “Science Guy” himself, Bill Nye, and former communications director for the Clinton White House Climate Change Task Force, Paul Bledsoe. He’s currently the strategic advisor of the Progressive Policy Institute. Bill, I do want to start with you because you brought some props. I imagine you’re going to show us something interesting. Go ahead.

NYE: Here’s the thing that’s going to be very troublesome: There’s going to be, in English units, 20 inches of rain in most places, and in a lot of places more than that. I just want everybody to remember what an inch of rain is. An inch is a cubic inch of water over a square inch of surface. So that would be a cubic inch right there. Doesn’t look like much. But imagine this much water wherever you are. This much extra water in your living room, where you're watching television, or where you’re trying to play basketball. This much water causes all kinds of trouble. And furthermore, the storms in the northern hemisphere are going counterclockwise. They fetch water up off the sea surface. So you add this much to about four times this much, and this is what leads to all this trouble.

And the reason people in mainstream science associate a storm like this with climate change is because the sea surface is at least one degree Celsius warmer than it was 30 years ago. And, reckoned in the longer term since the steam engine was invented, it’s two and a half, three degrees Celsius, three degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it would have been 30 years ago. And this energy, this heat energy in the ocean, drives these storms. I look forward, of course, to all the hate tweets. It's going to be great about how a guy who took a lot of physics can't possibly read a graph; I got all that. But, everybody, this is not in anybody's best interest to continue to deny climate change.

And, then, what's happened along the coast of South Carolina, North Carolina -- my people are from Durham, North Carolina, OK. What’s happened is many, many people have built these very nice houses on the seacoast, which are worth millions and millions of dollars. And when those people stop going to work for a week or two, or a month, the economy in that area doesn't collapse but is deeply affected. There's tremendous technology in the Raleigh-Durham area. The Raleigh-Durham airport is a huge airport. Atlanta airport, a huge airport. This is going to disrupt air traffic and cost everybody a lot of money. Back to you, Katie.

TUR: Let’s put up some graphics, if we can. First, we want to show you this storm surge along the eastern edge of the Carolinas and Virginia. That's where they are expected to have a lot more water from the storm surge. And then we have this, understanding how a storm surge works and how it forms. Bill, in terms of the warm water, we talked about it in the lead-in, three degrees warmer Fahrenheit over these waters, you said about a one degree Celsius warmer, in general. Why does that contribute to the strength of these storms?

NYE: One can ask oneself, where does the energy come from to drive a storm? It's the heat of sun warming the ocean, and then this extraordinary thing that we have here on Earth, which is water, water everywhere. So the water evaporates, and then when it gets to a higher altitude, it expands, releases energy. The heat energy spreads out and allows the water to go from a vapor back to a liquid and fall down as rain. And this motion of energy, this cycling, is what makes these storms drive, get bigger and more powerful. And the warmer the sea surface, the more temperature difference you have and the stronger the storm. Then what makes them spin is a combination of the spin of the Earth and gravity.

And they’re extraordinary. When I was a little kid, Hurricane Agnes passed over us. It's just this weird moment where the eye goes over, and all of sudden it's a blue sky, and then it starts raining again like crazy.

What's really going to cause trouble this time is the combination of all these people living along the coast and the sea surface being warmer in this long, long term. The real problem, everybody, category 3, 4, or four and a half or 5, is the electrical grid gets blown down, all these above-ground wires. Without electricity, our society just doesn't function very well.

TUR: Let's show the map of the Atlantic right now. And here are the storms that are forming: Florence, Isaac, and Helene. Also this: The 2018 hurricane forecast from NOAA. Nine to 13 named storms. Four to seven hurricanes. Potentially two major hurricanes. That's a lot of activity, Paul. We’re coming to expect more activity, generally, year by year. You believe that because of this, climate deniers, and we do have certain climate change deniers in this administration right now, will be forced to reverse themselves because, in order to mitigate all the costs from these storms, they’re going to have to accept it and do preparations to prepare for them, right?

BLEDSOE: That's right, Katie. Last year alone, the extreme weather events, made worse by climate change, cost the economy $350 billion. Congress had to appropriate $130 billion in special emergency appropriations to deal with these. These are costing taxpayers. The truth is that climate change is a huge public safety menace, and it’s a huge drag on our economy. Donald Trump and other Republicans who are denying climate change are on the wrong side of public safety, of economics, and of history. I’m here in California. Jerry Brown just announced that California is going to get 60 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2030. I was at an event yesterday put on by the Pisces Foundation, where if we reduce methane, rather than increase it, as Trump tried to do yesterday, and other super pollutants like HFCs, we can reduce warming this century by over a degree Celsius. Now think about how that would correspond in preventing the oceans from getting warmer and preventing these storms from getting out of control. This is not an environmental issue, fundamentally. It's one of public safety and economics. And, unfortunately, we're going to see more and more of these extreme, costly, and threatening-to-public-health-and-safety events until we begin to reduce our emissions.

TUR: It does make you wonder how can you adequately prepare for storms, for extreme weather, for fires, for hurricanes, for tornadoes, for flooding, for wild swings in temperature, which we’ve seen here in New York City in just the past week, if you have a bunch of people who don't believe in climate science running things?

BLEDSOE: You saw this in Puerto Rico.

TUR: Yeah.

Hi! This is by far the most comprehensive site on Hawaii I have seen. It's been my go-to for about the past four months as we planned our first trip to Maui (and Hawaii, for that matter). We are in Wake Forest, NC, so we are practically neighbors! I'm hoping you can lend some guidance about whether we should move forward with our trip or stay and reschedule for a later date. Our flight is leaving Raleigh next Wednesday (Sept. 19) and we are set to return Sept. 26. I've been keeping an eye on all the hurricane/tropical storm activity, and I'm having a hard time knowing whether or not the area we are staying in is under a lot of stress. We will be based out of Kaanapali and plan to explore the bamboo forest, hike a volcano, and possibly make a few stops on the Road to Hana. Not looking to go too far that way, just a little. We plan on placing a call to talk to someone locally, but I wanted to get your input based on your extensive knowledge of the layout. Thank you so very much for all the work you have put into this site! Stacy

Now at last, I get to hop up on stage with Marissa and the cast to be a part of the fun. If you thought Muppet productions were wild, just wait till you see what the Lythgoes have planned for this year! See you there! " said Kermit the Frog.

Marissa Jaret Winokur said, "I have taken my son Zev to the Pasadena Panto for years as it's the perfect introduction to theater for children, keeping the whole family entertained with comedy and pop songs. It's also been a dream to perform alongside Kermit the Frog, only the Lythgoes could make that happen and I am looking forward to creating some magic with them, somewhere over the rainbow!"

There will also be a special student matinee on December 14, 2018, servicing over 2,000 Title One school children who will be introduced to the magic of live theatre for the very first time.

          Gas stations run out of fuel as residents stock up ahead of Florence landfall      Cache   Translate Page      
Gas stations across the Carolinas faced shortages as residents stocked up ahead of Hurricane Florence's landfall. This , filmed on the evening of September 12, shows a Shell station out of gas. Local fuel station finding app GasBuddy showed that 11 percent of stations in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, were out of gas, and in Wilmington, North Carolina, 10.5 percent of stations were out. Authorities lowered Florence to a Category 3 hurricane earlier in the day, with wind speeds recording at around 115 mph, but state that the storm is still on a path that will put millions of people at risk and could potentially jump to a Category 5 overnight. States of emergency have been declared in Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia as residents braced for the worst of the storm.

I accidentally posted this first in the article about confession-- sorry. Here it is again :( A beautiful and meaningful suggestion and….I can hear too many voices deridingly saying, “Pffft–how old school, such primitivism. Years ago, during my long years outside the Church, I lived for a time (~a year all told) in the New Age community Findhorn, sorta the birthplace of it all, and I had the following experience that comes to mind here. To set the stage: Findhorn, as you know, was(is) heavily into the New Age of communing with Nature, plants and animals, and sorta having nature “tamed” to the human will/spirit for the good of all involved. One day, while some of us were working in their kitchen, it was pointed out that a rat had been seen in the area. When it was suggested that the old Findhorn way of “reasoning” with the rat should be followed to ask him to leave, the suggestion was met with general superior-like laughter, despite that being the logic on which the place was founded. They mockingly did so anyway. Why do I feel that in today’s Church, the old days of saints’ repelling invaders or floods by holding a cross of using holy water is seen as naught but old wives tales about famous people. It is not. Will they take your suggestion? I profoundly hope so, but I aint holding my breath.

LEGACY OF LIES by Tara Leigh

Releasing October 15

Blurb:

Money. Status. Wealth. Power. I believed I was entitled to all of it. My legacy. Jolie Chapman. I thought I was entitled to her, too. My love. In a scandal that set our families against each other, I lost. My legacy. My love. Everything. I was heir to a throne built on lies, my crown forged from corruption. Stripped of everything I'd been raised to consider my birthright. Including my princess—who wasn’t mine, after all. I’ve spent the past decade rebuilding my life, on my own terms. Money. Status. Wealth. Power. They’ve been earned. Now I’ve returned to Manhattan for redemption, too. Jolie wasn’t supposed to be here. … And I wasn’t supposed to care. Screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice— Who am I kidding? I don’t believe in second chances anymore.

------------------

The LEGACY OF LIES series novella, THRONE OF LIES, coming October 11th!

THRONE OF LIES by Tara Leigh

Prequel novella to Legacy of Lies - Releasing October 11

Blurb:

I was called a prodigal son. A scion of Midas. I believed it. Why wouldn’t I? Everything my father touched turned to gold. The proof was all around me. Luxury cars. Elite schools. A billion-dollar business. Even my girlfriend, a Park Avenue Princess. I reigned from a throne of lies. My fall from grace… wasn’t graceful at all.

"A Life Changing Event": 3 Million To Lose Power, 
Hog Farmers Panic As Hurricane Set To Smash Into Coast"
by Tyler Durden

"With Hurricane Florence barreling down on North Carolina, local industries - especially hog farmers - are preparing for the worst. Meanwhile, millions are at risk of losing power as they brace for a historic weather event. According to David Fountain, Duke Energy’s president for North Carolina, up to 3 million homes  and businesses are at risk of losing power as a result of the hurricane, which in a worst case scenario would come onshore at Wilmington, North Carolina and move through Raleigh, Greensboro and Charlotte.
Natural devastation aside, there is the crippling impact the storm will have on local businesses: one of the biggest industries in the storm's path is hog farming. Hundreds of farms are in the direct path of the hurricane and are scrambling to prepare for its impact by stockpiling feed and moving their livestock, according to this Wall Street Journal article. Preparations to manage millions of gallons of hog waste are also underway. 

The worst case scenario for North Carolina, with its 2,100 hog farms and 9 million pigs and hogs, would be to cripple the local hog farming industry. The potential devastation for hog farmers would be a deja vu to what happened after Hurricane Floyd struck in 1999. The result was the destruction of many farms, including flooding, dead livestock and waste leaking into waterways.   Preparations for the worst have been aided by a dry summer which has, in turn, kept waste lagoon levels low. Power is also of the essence, because farmers are at risk of losing livestock if their barns can’t be ventilated.

Still, some are optimistic: the CEO of the North Carolina Pork Council, Andy Curliss, believes that farmers will be prepared this time around: "They’ll deal with what’s thrown at them,” he told the Wall Street Journal. 

Gaye Crowther owns a farm outside of Tabor City, N.C, and is getting ready by purchasing fuel for generators and actively managing her waste lagoons. She’s also filling feed bins with corn and soy beans in an amount that should give animals two weeks worth of food to eat. In addition to worrying about the livestock, she also has to worry about her 29 employees. “It's stressful. You’ve got the people that work for you that need to be safe. You’ve got the hogs that you want to take care of.”

Another example is Goldsboro Milling from Goldsboro, N.C., which is also stockpiling feed. This is what the director of human resources told the WSJ: “We actually have a war room where we’ve got people from the production side and logistics so they can identify farms that are running low on feed.” Smithfield Foods said that it is going out of its way to protect workers and animals at its 250 farms that it owns, as well as at the 1500 contract farms it has. Like the others, they are also monitoring and lowering waste levels.

The waste lagoons in North Carolina have often been a point of contention for environmentalists, as there are more than 4,000 of them in the state and they each often hold "millions of gallons" of manure. In 1999, six lagoons saw breaches, which resulted in waste moving into the water supply. The state ended up buying 43 farms, including 100 lagoons that were located in flood planes. In 2016, the state saw a similar, but less disastrous outcome in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. There was a partial breach of one lagoon that hadn’t had hogs near it for years.

And here is the problem: Curliss told the WSJ that lagoons across the state can handle 25 inches of rain. But according to forecasts from the National Hurricane Center, 40 inches could be expected from Florence.

Independent surveyors will reportedly be out looking at farms over the next couple of days to measure what impact this hurricane will have. People like Will Hendrick, who is a staff attorney with the Waterkeeper Alliance, also went out and surveyed after events like Hurricane Matthew. Back then, he found that floodwaters in eight counties had infiltrated 10 hog farms and 14 lagoons that hold millions of gallons of waste.

Meanwhile, assuming they are not drinking pig sh*t, local residents may have bigger problems as they remain in the dark for weeks. Duke Energy said it was mobilizing about 20,000 workers to help with keeping power on during the storm. Mollie Gore, a spokeswoman for Santee-Cooper told Bloomberg that "it may take days" before line workers are able to start getting power restored, telling them “We can’t get a bucket truck out there when tropical storm winds are still blowing.”

Duke Energy's president told Bloomberg: "This is no ordinary storm, and people could be without power for a very long time - not days but weeks. Hurricane Florence will be a life changing event for many people in the Carolinas."

          Meski Kekuatan Badai Florence Turun, Otoritas Wajibkan Jutaan Warga AS Mengungsi      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Raleigh - Otoritas di sejumlah negara bagian di pantai timur Amerika Serikat tetap mengimbau, bahkan mewajibkan lebih dari 1 juta warga untuk mengungsi dari tempat tinggal mereka, meski Badai Florence nan dahsyat yang diperkirakan akan menerjang kawasan itu pada pekan ini, mulai melemah.

Awal pekan ini, Badai Florence sempat masuk dalam badai kategori empat menurut perhitungan sistem klasifikasi Badan Cuaca Nasional AS (NWS). Namun pada 12 September, lembaga yang sama melaporkan terjadi penurunan klasifikasi badai menjadi kategori dua.

Kendati demikian, prakirawan cuaca tetap memprediksi bahwa Badai Florence --yang datang dari Atlantik-- akan tiba di pesisir timur AS pada akhir pekan ini dengan membawa angin kencang yang berpotensi merusak, hujan deras, banjir serta gelombang ombak dan pasang, demikian seperti dikutip dari CNN, Kamis (13/9/2018).

Negara bagian yang diperkirakan akan terdampak badai itu meliputi Carolina Selatan, Carolina Utara, Georgia, Virginia, dan Maryland --dengan kedua Carolina diprediksi akan menerima dampak terparah.

"Anda mempertaruhkan hidup Anda dengan tetap tinggal," kata Gubernur Negara Bagian Carolina Utara, Roy Cooper.

Cooper dan mitranya dari Carolina Selatan, Gubernur Henry McMaster, mengatakan kepada lebih dari 1 juta warga di lokasi yang berpotensi terdampak badai agar wajib meninggalkan rumah mereka. Jika tidak, McMaster mengatakan bahwa para warga bertanggung jawab sendiri atas keselamatan masing-masing.

McMaster mengatakan kepada penduduk di beberapa daerah bahwa responden darurat akan ditarik dari daerah yang diperkirakan akan dihantam keras.

"Bahkan penyelamat tidak bisa tinggal di sana," katanya.

Sama halnya, Gubernur Virginia telah memerintahkan evakuasi wajib bagi beberapa penduduk daerah pesisir dataran rendah yang dimulai Selasa pagi. Pejabat negara mengatakan 245.000 orang tinggal di daerah yang berpotensi terkena bencana, tetapi para pejabat memperingatkan bahwa badai Florence dapat mempengaruhi seluruh negara bagian itu.

Di samping lebih dari 1 juta warga di kedua negara bagian Carolina dan Virginia, NWS memperkirakan bahwa sekitar 10 juta warga di negara bagian di kawasan pesisir timur AS akan terdampak Badai Florence.

Jam malam di kedua negara bagian Carolina telah diberlakukan oleh otoritas.

Di Pantai Carolina, otoritas juga memberlakukan pembatasan jam lalu-lintas, dengan pukul 20.00 sebagai batas akhir yang diizinkan bagi kendaraan untuk berlalu-lalang.

Gelombang ombak dan air pasang tinggi yang dibawa Badai Florence --yang diperkirakan mencapai 2 hingga 4 meter-- diprediksi akan menghantam kawasan pantai tersebut dan memutus jalan serta jembatan penghubung antara kawasan pulau di Kota Wilmington dengan daratan utama.

Di lepas pantai negara bagian, ombak besar laut dan arus sobekan yang berbahaya sudah terlihat selama akhir pekan, menandakan datangnya badai. Para pengunjung pantai telah diperingatkan untuk menghindari lautan, dan feri yang melayani pantai negara telah dibatalkan.

Di Virginia, tempat pangkalan angkatan laut terbesar di dunia, AL Amerika Serikat telah memerintahkan semua kapal ke laut untuk persiapan badai, di mana mereka dapat lebih aman menunggangi angin kencang dan ombak.

Jalur yang akan dilintasi Badai Florence diproyeksikan mencakup setengah lusin pembangkit listrik tenaga nuklir, lubang yang menyimpan limbah industri, dan banyak peternakan babi yang menyimpan kotoran hewan di laguna terbuka. Smithfield Foods milik China mengumumkan akan menutup rumah jagal terbesar di dunia untuk babi, yang dapat membunuh 35.000 hewan setiap hari, di Tar Heel, North Carolina, selama badai.

Imbauan Pemerintah Federal

Otoritas federal AS juga mengimbau agar warga pesisir timur untuk segera mengungsi dari rumah mereka masing-masing.

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) menetapkan status waspada tinggi di pesisir pantai Carolina Utara dan Selatan pada Rabu, 12 September 2018. Lembaga itu juga mendesak warga melakukan evakuasi.

Pada kesempatan terpisah, Presiden Amerika Serikat Donald Trump menyatakan pada Selasa 11 September 2018 bahwa pemerintahannya "benar-benar, sangat siap" untuk mengantisipasi Badai Florence.

Kepercayaan diri Trump tentang kesiapan pemerintahannya untuk mengantisipasi Badai Florence mereferensi pada bagaimana AS "berhasil menangani Badai Maria" yang menghancurkan Puerto Rico --meski banyak pihak yang mengkritik bahwa Washington lambat memberikan respons terhadap bencana yang menelan sekitar 3.000 jiwa di teritori AS di Amerika tengah itu.

Berlawanan dengan Trump, Craig Fugate, mantan Direktur FEMA mengatakan, "Saya takut, berdasarkan pengalaman saya di FEMA, bahwa publik mungkin tidak sesiap yang diinginkan semua orang."

Sejak persiapan dan upaya bantuan pemerintah federal yang tidak memadai selama Badai Katrina pada 2005 di masa Presiden George W Bush, cara Washington merespons badai telah menjadi pisau kritik mengenai efisiensi administrasi.

More than 300K evacuate South Carolina coasts
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster says more than 300,000 people have already evacuated the state's coasts ahead of Hurricane Florence.
  
McMaster told reporters Wednesday that the storm could bring more rain to the state than 1989's devastating Hurricane Hugo.
  
McMaster has ordered much of the state's coastline evacuated, reversing some lanes of a major interstate to direct all traffic inland.
  
Forecasters warned as much as 15 inches (38 centimeters) could fall in some portions of the state through at least Monday.
  
The head of the state's National Guard also says the federal government has positioned aid ships off South Carolina's coast and they'll be ready to assist after the storm moves through.

          Hurricane Florence could dump up to 40 inches of rain on parts of the Carolinas — here's why the deluge may be so intense      Cache   Translate Page      

hurricane florence storm space satellite rammb jira goes 16 noaa

  • Hurricane Florence, a category 4 storm, is approaching the coast of the Carolinas. Its effects are expected to be felt in the area starting Thursday.
  • Forecasters predict the storm will slow down considerably as it approaches the shore, coming close to a standstill and dumping as much as 40 inches of rain.
  • That could prompt deadly floods.
  • Climate scientists say Florence's behavior isn't an anomaly — hurricanes are getting wetter and slower. Here's why.


Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the US East Coast, bringing 125 mph winds, a life-threatening storm surge, and extremely heavy rain.

The storm's center is expected to make landfall near the border between North and South Carolina. Its extreme winds and storm surge could be devastating, as a wall of water 13 feet high in some spots pushes its way into the shore.

But the worst impact of the storm may actually come from the rain.

The National Hurricane Center predicts that the storm will get stuck over North and South Carolina all weekend, stalling over portions of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia until Sunday morning. Projections suggest Florence will inch its way west over the weekend, with its eye taking two full days to drift from the coast into central North Carolina.

During that time, up to 40 inches of rain could fall over parts of North Carolina's coast, prompting immense floods. Even areas as far inland as Charlotte and Raleigh could get up to 10 inches of rain.

Several factors are combining to create this worrisome situation: a high-pressure ridge of calmer weather is developing over the Ohio Valley, and ocean and air temperatures are higher than average. 

Why Florence will get stuck

High-pressure ridges form when warm air in the upper atmosphere descends toward the Earth, making for clear, cloudless skies. This provides a natural barrier for swirling storms like Florence. 

"Hurricanes cannot plow through regions of high pressure, they prefer to go around them," James Done, an atmospheric scientist from the National Center for Atmospheric Research, told Business Insider in an email on Tuesday. "In this case, there's not an easy way around this high pressure."

So this weather system coming in from the west will essentially block Hurricane Florence from moving and dispersing, holding the massive, 73,000 square mile-wide storm in place over the Carolinas and Virginia.

The National Weather Service is warning that "thousands of homes and businesses will be filled with water" in the storm-affected area. Roads on wet ground will likely erode from underneath.

It's similar to what happened last year when Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. Harvey was downgraded to a tropical depression when it made landfall — with winds of less than 39 mph — but it lingered for days, hanging over low-lying Houston and causing devastating flooding.

Hurricanes are becoming wetter 

The second reason that Florence could bring deadly rainfall and flooding is part of a larger trend in hurricane developmentstorms are becoming wetter and more powerful as the oceans and air warm up. 

Peak rain rates, which arrive when the fierce core of a storm is overhead, have increased 30% over the past 60 years, according Andreas Prein, a project scientist with the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research.

This is due to greenhouse gases from fossil fuels, which trap more heat on the planet and make the air and oceans warmer as a result. Warmer air can hold more water vapor, and this allows storms to become stronger and produce more rain.

Hurricanes are also fed by warm ocean water, which pumps more heat and evaporating seawater up into a storm. The surface water in the ocean needs to be at least 80 degrees Fahrenheit in order for a hurricane to get swirling. (That's why they don't appear during the winter.) Currently, sea surface temperatures off the Carolinas are 3 or 4 degrees Fahrenheit higher than average for this time of year, giving Florence more fuel than previous storms that hit the region.

Because Florence is trapped by that high-pressure ridge and likely to stick around over warmer water for longer, that could give the storm even more strength.

More powerful hurricanes also bring higher storm-surge levels, a problem that's exacerbated by sea-level rise. Hurricane Florence's storm surge could be as high as 13 feet in places like Cape Fear and Cape Lookout on the coast of North Carolina. 

Hurricanes typically lose strength as they move over land, but the warmer air and water means there's more energy available to fuel their destructive paths. When storms like Florence have more moisture to draw from, they maintain more strength as they move inland and hold in moisture for longer. 

"Storms are going to move deeper inland and affect more people," climate scientist Cindy Bruyere, who studies storms at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, recently told Business Insider. The trend means places where people aren't used to being in the flood path could be inundated. 

Eastern North Carolina has a moderate to high risk of flash floods as the storm arrives, but flash flooding is possible up into Maryland and the southeast corner of West Virginia, per National Weather Service.

Storms are getting sluggish

Stalled storms like Harvey — and potentially Florence — might represent a new normal, according to recent research from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 

The analysis, done by by NOAA researcher James Kossin, shows that hurricanes, typhoons, and tropical storms are moving more slowly over the Earth's surface, especially over land. Storms slowed by an average of 10% from 1949 to 2016, that analysis found. 

This cyclone slowdown is likely caused by changes in the circulation of Earth's atmosphere due to climate change, Kossin said. Over the 67-year period he studied, the average global temperature rose by 0.5 degrees Celsius. 

Stronger, wetter, slower storms are becoming a life-threatening consequence of living in a warmer world.

NOW WATCH: Why water disappears from shorelines during a hurricane

Hurricane Florence is coming to the east coast


The deadly hurricane Florence is making it’s way into the East Coast of the US at 16 MPH, right now measured as a category 3 hurricane of 335 miles in diameter and expected to grow back into a category 4 on Thursday, this dangerous phenomenon is being described as “The storm of a lifetime” and is threatening the lives of 10 million people.

US president Donald Trump said that this will be one of the biggest hurricanes to ever hit the US, and has urged civilians to heed the instructions of of state and local officials, he added “It is imperative that everyone follow local evacuation orders. This storm is extremely dangerous. Be SAFE!”

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for north of the North Carolina/Virginia border to Cape Charles Light, Virginia and for the Chesapeake Bay south of New Point Comfort.

Florence had the strength of a category 4 hurricane and was over 400 miles in diameter this Wednesday morning, but lost some momentum over the day, however Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator Jeff Byard warned that despite its slight weakening, Florence will still be an extremely dangerous hurricane, and that it will likely regain it’s power tomorrow morning, and touch ground on Thursday night or on Friday.

“Do you want to get hit with a train or do you want to get hit with a cement truck,” Byard asked.

Florence will pass over two nuclear power plants — the Brunswick Nuclear Plant, which is located 30 miles south of Wilmington, as well as the Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant in New Hill, about 23 miles from Raleigh according to the proyected route.

           FirstNet Goes Local       Cache   Translate Page      

On Sept. 11, 2001, in the nation’s worst public safety communications breakdown, firefighters in New York City’s World Trade Center were unable to receive warnings to evacuate the North Tower, which collapsed, killing hundreds of first responders. During hurricanes Katrina and Rita, commercial wireless networks went offline as flooding ensued, making it impossible for federal troops and emergency officials to communicate with each other, and bringing chaos to rescue efforts.

In the wake of the country’s worst terrorist attack and unprecedented natural disasters, one of the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Report was to stand up nationwide, interoperable communications for all first responders. The result was the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), created by Congress as part of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 and partially funded with $7 billion.

FirstNet selected AT&T in 2017 to build and manage its broadband network and offered “success-based payments” of $6.5 billion over five years. AT&T said it would spend roughly $40 billion during the 25-year contract to construct, run and maintain the network. Fifty-six states and territories, and Washington, D.C., joined FirstNet by late 2017, with a few meeting the opt-out deadline with just days to spare.

This March, FirstNet launched its core network in a controlled introduction to a limited customer base. Rival Verizon also said its competing core network, entirely self-funded, would be “generally available” to all members. Often left unsaid is the fact that, regardless of state-level participation, individual local first responder agencies retain the option to join either network or none. By late July, more than 1,500 public safety agencies had joined FirstNet, enabling more than 110,000 connections — with the adoption rate doubling from April to June. Verizon has declined to release exact subscriber numbers.

The communication landscape for first responders and law enforcement is still being redefined by the arrival of these broadband networks, with significant questions around what they could ultimately look like, when the large-scale transition will occur and how agencies should accomplish it. Critical communication has unquestionably been improved by these national systems, according to first responder association officials who have firmly endorsed FirstNet.

However, with roughly 18,000 law enforcement agencies in existence nationwide, it’s clear the vast majority have not yet joined either FirstNet or Verizon. A key reason is that while police, sheriffs and firefighters in the same jurisdictions today may all still use different, noncompatible communications systems, emergency personnel are traditionally cautious about relinquishing devices that have been proven to work.

A dedicated network will allow first responders to pre-empt commercial communications traffic, allowing for faster, more efficient response. (Photo: Flickr/FirstNet)

Finding the Best Fit

FirstNet’s two linchpin attributes are priority and pre-emption. Priority guarantees first responders’ traffic will take precedence over any commercial traffic on Band Class 14, the spectrum that’s exclusive to FirstNet members during incidents but available to commercial subscribers at all other times. Pre-emption achieves priority, literally displacing commercial traffic in a crisis. A growing number of FirstNet-certified devices undergo a unique certification process of around 3,500 tests aimed at verifying higher security and reliability before being approved to accept network SIM cards, according to Scott Agnew, AT&T assistant vice president of product marketing for the public sector.

While the network currently has just a “handful” of Band 14-enabled devices, that number is expected to rise. To date, Band 14 has been added to more than 2,500 sites nationwide and is live in 40 states. AT&T plans to add Band 14 to more than 10,000 additional locations, and it’s seen as key to closing gaps in rural coverage. “Because this is public safety, it is treated at a much higher level from a security and reliability standpoint,” said Agnew.

Verizon’s network also offers priority, pre-emption and heightened security to its members, according to Nicholas Nilan, the company’s director of product development for the public sector. But rather than keeping first responders in a “certain spectrum class,” Verizon offers them access to the entirety of its network. A 2015 study led by the RAND Corp. affirmed the “emergence of a future broadband network” that would let law enforcement “seamlessly and securely communicate over whatever local point of access is the best fit.” Nilan underscored that point, emphasizing Verizon’s mission to meet a tremendous need for interoperability.

“The question remains, and the goal remains, to provide interoperability across multiple levels between networks, between commercial carriers, and that requires commercial carriers coming to the table to discuss interoperability and make sure that we all align on it,” he said.

Eddie Reyes, chairman of the Communications and Technology Committee at the International Association of Chiefs of Police and an executive fellow at the Police Foundation, explained that law enforcement communication systems remain fragmented nationwide and described police, firefighters and paramedics as cynical and “not likely to let go of technology they trust when a new thing comes along.”

FirstNet, said Reyes, “really hasn’t been driven around the block enough times yet, it hasn’t proven itself,” prompting officials to take a “toes-in-the-water approach as opposed to a head-dive approach.” That’s the case in Prince William County, Va., where Reyes is director of the Office of Public Safety Communications. The county has compared FirstNet-enabled devices “side-by-side” for about 30 days with those on its current carrier. For now, the county is piloting the network on fewer than 10 cellphones and in-vehicle computers.

“To me, the real test is going to be when things get really hectic and really busy — and a commercial wireless network provider typically gets busy because we’re on that highway with everyone else,” said Reyes. “We don’t have pre-emption and priority on our wireless carrier whereas, of course, with FirstNet, it’s going to be tested if we’re going to have a higher level of resiliency, once a major emergency happens.”

But officials in Wake County, North Carolina’s second most-populous county at more than 1 million residents, are gearing up to migrate from Verizon to FirstNet during the next 12 to 18 months, citing an increasing reliance on mobile broadband data connectivity, and FirstNet’s ability to provide it on a dedicated spectrum. In an email, Wake County’s Information Technology Director John Higgins and Jon Olson, the county’s EMS deputy director and chief of support services, described connectivity as “mission-critical,” pointing out that by late 2019, the county intends for every first responder unit to be able to exchange data with the Raleigh-Wake Emergency Communications Center and agency public safety apps.

“As demand on wireless networks increases based on expanded use of current technology and the implementation of emerging technologies for public safety, so grows the need for a first responder-only ‘information highway’ that a dedicated broadband network will provide,” said Higgins and Olson.

Tom Jenkins, president of the International Association of Fire Chiefs and fire chief for Rogers, Ark., agreed that FirstNet has “spectrum real estate” in Band 14, and characterized its provider AT&T as “genuine with caring” about members. While he believes all first responder disciplines are important, Jenkins pointed out that firefighters, with their varied assignments, have a need for improved access to online information that is “tough to rival.”

Rogers, a city of nearly 70,000 in northwestern Arkansas, has upgraded all accounts from AT&T to FirstNet in what it considers a cost-effective move. Not all fire personnel are on the core yet, but those who are got their first real demonstration of the network’s potential during a Fourth of July fireworks show. With residents actively sending and receiving photographs, texts and video, the fire chief said his staff saw a clear difference in latency between its smartphones, which were FirstNet-enabled, and its iPads, which were not. While voice communications are generally considered most important to Rogers and Wake County, both local agencies view being able to send and receive large amounts of data as increasingly vital.

“It’s an exciting time to be able to solve what is probably the most critical element of using data in a public safety environment, and that’s reliability and redundancy, and for them to have that priority,” said Jenkins. He pointed out that interoperability could be an Achilles’ heel going forward. To ensure connectivity during peak times of usage, AT&T and Verizon also offer portable wireless towers known as COLTs and COWs (Cells on Light Trucks and Cells on Wheels, respectively) to boost bandwidth at large events like the July Fourth celebration on the National Mall. Recently, FirstNet launched its first such dedicated resource, the Satellite Cell on Light Truck (SatCOLT), which was utilized to keep public safety officers connected at a July Fourth celebration in Chino, Calif.

Meeting Top Needs?

Officials at the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) in Washington, D.C., a research think tank on policing, said their group hosted a March 2010 meeting for stakeholders, including the Federal Communications Commission, that “made the case for this dedicated spectrum,” meaning Band 14. PERF Executive Director Chuck Wexler called FirstNet “the culmination of what many in law enforcement had been asking for.” He and PERF’s chief operations and strategy officers agreed FirstNet will likely help overcome the communications difficulties of 9/11, but said challenges around adoption policies, equipment rollouts, and usage remain as agencies move to join FirstNet.

“What happens when a department adopts it? How do you communicate? How are officers given equipment? How do they use the voice and texting and driving to a call? There are just practical issues. A lot of policing is a word-of-mouth kind of enterprise in which people will look to hear what’s working and what isn’t,” Wexler said. PERF will host a meeting for early adopters in September to hear their impressions of FirstNet and will compile case studies based on their experiences.

The 2015 RAND study, done in conjunction with PERF, RTI International and the University of Denver, also emphasized the need to be able to “make sense out of all the new data.” The top 10 needs the study identified for law enforcement broadband communications included guidance on acquiring, managing and using “mixtures” of technologies; processes and procedures to help public safety answering point (PSAP) employees “prioritize incoming data”; and concepts, policies and procedures for mutual aid networks in a “post land-mobile-radio/FirstNet/broadband era.”

It’s important for local governments to be aware of their transition process onto a dedicated broadband network, the costs for a “full life cycle,” and to avoid buying technology “because it sounds cool,” said John Hollywood, the study’s project leader. “Go into that with a sense of what you plan to do with the FirstNet devices in terms of improving response, improving ongoing both day-to-day responses and large-scale communications. We tell people, ‘Go in with use cases, go in with a plan.’”


           Raleigh CIO: Strategy Helps Drive Digital Transformation       Cache   Translate Page      

North Carolina’s burgeoning capital city is ahead of schedule on its digital transformation, which is guided by a multifaceted IT strategy, its technology leader said recently.

Raleigh continues to add population and is now home to 465,000 residents, its CIO Darnell Smith told attendees at the North Carolina Digital Government Summit Aug. 30. And so far, its digital transformation has outstripped predictions, he said. In 2016, the city’s percentage of business that was digital was 27 percent, predicted to rise to 33 percent by 2019. But, Smith said, Raleigh has already taken 47 percent of its business digital and may reach 55 percent by next year — a bar initially set for 2021.

That hasn’t come without a lot of hard work, the CIO told attendees, noting that while the city is projecting correctly on its digital transformation, “there’s a lot we need to do to catch up.” In April, he talked with Government Technology about various initiatives underway, including getting off paper, and implementing body-worn cameras for police. But none of this would be possible, he said, without an IT shop at the ready — and a blueprint for that success.

Raleigh’s ongoing IT modernization is empowered by a five-part strategy that begins with the idea of focused enterprise — boosting efficiency and automation through tech, engagement, measuring service and achieving a “clarity of demand,” the CIO said. He offered two use cases for how this is being accomplished: a partnership with Esri to stand up an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) dashboard to inform mobilization, and the use of 3-D modeling “as a platform for citizen engagement” that is still being implemented.

“Raleigh is a growing city, and this is a way for us to basically model where the buildings are going in and allow citizens to see what the impact is on surrounding areas,” Smith said. The strategy also includes IT Excellence, the concept of a high-functioning organization “where IT works just like a light switch,” he said.

The city’s IT strategy also includes engaged community, the idea that the incoming customer or resident has a good experience. It features smart city enablement, providing tech leadership to spur smart city efforts, and actionable information, the idea of providing residents and officials with “information in the right format, at the right time and at the right level of detail” to inform decisions. Raleigh has empowered actionable information, Smith said, by more fully mapping its functions, people and capabilities around IT, and has “basically standardized on Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) around our organizational processes.”

IT shop members are all ITIL-certified, the CIO said, and the agency is working toward Control Objectives for Information and Related Technologies (COBIT) certification for management. The city did a proof of concept earlier this year on actionable information, Smith said, and selected Microsoft’s Power BI analytics service — which is now deployed through most departments.

“Understanding the data, understanding what metrics they need to build in the right dashboards, so that people can make decisions with real-time data, it’s a process, but everybody is fully engaged,” Smith said.

“There is a need for data now like a person in the desert that needs water. And so, it is us making sure the data is there and available in a way with our VI [visual insight] tools,” he added in an interview, describing Raleigh’s efforts on integrating data as “early in the journey.”

Smith, who became CIO in January 2016, said smart cities were new to him as this is his first time in government, but pointed out Raleigh’s effort has been underway for years. It has examined Big Belly smart, solar-powered trash cans that monitor refuse levels, Soofa Bench solar cellphone charging stations downtown, and wireless Internet at its community centers through an AT&T partnership.

The city is also building a mobile app to drill down on the downtown parking situation, and now has a live help ticket feed through its Cityworks back-end system, to push its pothole filling process in real-time.

“You have to have your shop in order to be able to do smart cities in an efficient manner. It is consistent data at the enterprise level, so that you can do these integrations one time,” Smith said, noting that Raleigh was recognized by the company for its implementation of the technology on an enterprise level.

Great idea Father. Also doesn't the old blessing of wax candles give a specific power against storms? When I was young, my mother had me wave a brown scapular over an outside fire that was getting out of control and was spreading into the pasture - the flames died down. I'll never forget that. Also a former parishioner in our Ukrainian parish told me about how she walked through her house with some burning blessed Easter palms [or maybe it was pussy willows that the Easterners sometime use], allowing their smoke to permeate every room. This was during a terrifying storm. She said her children made fun of her. The next morning their house was untouched in the neighborhood of storm-trashed houses. Certainly the power of priests and bishops would give more oomph to our pleas to heaven.

          Hurricane also reveals devastation of News & Observer journalists      Cache   Translate Page      

Two decades of weathering the budgetary storm has taken its toll:

The last time a hurricane took direct aim at North Carolina, back in 1999, the Raleigh News & Observer mobilized most of the 250 people in its newsroom to cover the storm and its aftermath. For its extensive efforts, the N&O was named a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in breaking news the following year (it lost out to the Denver Post, which won for its reporting on the Columbine High School shootings).

As Hurricane Florence bears down on the Carolinas, the Raleigh newspaper is a shadow of what it was in 1999. As a result of the kind of downsizing and layoffs that have affected newspapers everywhere, its newsroom has shrunk from 250 journalists to just 65. Faced with steadily declining ad revenue, the paper has outsourced some of its most basic functions, such as copy editing and print design, to a sister newspaper.

I have come to realize over the last decade or so that efforts to come up with a working "business model" is simply the wrong way to approach this. The word "business" needs to be removed entirely, and replaced with something else, and that something else just might be "philanthropy." We spends billions every year in philanthropic dollars on physical health issues, but improving our intellectual health would help us achieve progress across the board. What we don't need is naive cheerleading from corporate leaders:

But in many important respects, the News & Observer’s coverage of Florence may be superior to its acclaimed reporting two decades ago, said executive editor Robyn Tomlin. “I think we’re going to be 100 percent better,” she said Wednesday morning amid planning for the storm. “The way people get information has changed dramatically. And so has the way we report it.”

Thanks to a consolidation wave that swept over the declining newspaper business in the mid-2000s, the paper won’t be all by itself in chronicling the hurricane. Its reporting will be supplemented by journalists from seven other daily newspapers in the Carolinas, all of them owned by its parent company, McClatchy Newspapers of Sacramento. McClatchy bought some of the papers as their owners exited the business over the past 15 years.

The group — which Tomlin heads — includes a major regional outlet, the Charlotte Observer, smaller dailies such as the State in Columbia, S.C., and a string of papers along the South Carolina coast, including in Myrtle Beach, Beaufort and Hilton Head. The eight papers have been sharing resources and stories, such as a common regional forecast story.

Thanks for reminding me of an irritating trend about which I've been wanting to rant. Every morning, I hit the "News" page of the N&O before I track down political stuff, and usually half of the stories (if not more) are South Carolina-related. I just assumed it was embedded cookies detecting that I lived 57 miles away or something along those lines, and mistakenly judged I actually lived in South Carolina and would be interested.

Here's a news-flash for ya': I'm not interested in a story about a corrupt deputy sheriff in some podunk SC county, nor am I interested in a contested primary in their Legislative races. Why would I be, and who at the N&O thought putting those stories in a Raleigh paper (albeit online) was a good idea? And who thought this argument would be sound?:

The News & Observer will also count on help from journalists from McClatchy’s other newspapers and news bureaus, including one in Washington. In all, Tomlin expects to have about 220 journalists feeding stories, photos, videos and graphics to the News & Observer, or roughly the same number the paper had on the story nearly 20 years ago.

It shouldn't need to be said, but gobbling up a bunch of regional newspapers and then bragging about the total number of reporters you now have (which still doesn't equal what one of them had 19 years ago) isn't even form over function, it's borderline mendacious.

          A Rare Thursday Post: Hurricane Florence      Cache   Translate Page      

I'm posting today because I've had a lot of messages asking if our son Sam is in the path of Hurricane Florence.  I appreciate the concern, and believe me, we are concerned as well because yes - he is in the path of the hurricane.  Clayton, the town that he recently moved to, is just southeast of Raleigh so he is in the zone, although seriously, it's looking bad for most of North and South Carolina.

Because the devastation that Hurricane Harvey caused to Houston is so fresh in our minds, I called Sam on Sunday to encourage him to start taking some action, and he did, buying non-perishable food (I knew the state of his pantry was practically empty when I left about 6 weeks ago, and sure enough, it was still pretty sparse until this week), some water, and filling his car with gas.  Not that he was planning on evacuating, but when Harvey struck, the power was off for so many people that they were relying on generators - which run on gas.  The gas stations HERE, over 100 miles away, were out of fuel because Houstonians were driving up, filling gas cans, and taking them back to Houston to power their generators for a few hours each day.

On Monday when Sam went to work, he was part of a conference call regarding hurricane planning.  He is an engineer at Verizon, and his territory is North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee - so yeah, there were some big plans to be made.  He told me later that day that they had cows and goats ready - wait, I mean COWs and GOATs - Cell on Wheels, which are temporary cell towers, and Generator on a Truck, which are portable generators.  I love all these acronyms, but mostly, I love the thought that he will still be able to stay in contact with us.

On Tuesday Sam and his coworkers made a pilgrimage to Sam's Club and they all bought more supplies.  The worry is that power will be out for an extended period of time, so they hedged their bets and decided that they'll have one heck of a potluck with all the food if they don't end up needing to use it during the hurricane.

Sam's new house should be OK - I mean, it's brand new, right?  He did get a fence and sod installed recently in his backyard, so hopefully they will withstand the high winds and rain.  We think the only issue he may have is a lot of mud washing onto the side of his yard and house because there are two empty lots on the higher side of the street next to him.  His house is above street level and there's a big culvert behind his house, so the water should have somewhere to go, even if they get a lot of rain.  Of course, it's been raining there for a week already, so the ground is saturated even before Florence will hit.  Not ideal, that's for sure.

Anyway, as you might tell, I'm nervous and wish he wasn't having to face this alone, although he has made friends with quite a few neighbors and I'm sure they'll all look after each other.  And writing all of this out is helping me to stay calm, although I've been doing quite a bit of nervous knitting this week and I'm sure will continue to do so.

Hang in there, North Carolina - I'm quite fond of you and your inhabitants.

          Hurricane Florence could dump up to 40 inches of rain on parts of the Carolinas — here's why the deluge may be so intense      Cache   Translate Page      

hurricane florence

  • Hurricane Florence, an 80-mile wide Category 2 storm, is starting to hit the coast of the Carolinas
  • Forecasters predict the storm will slow down considerably, coming close to a standstill and dumping as much as 40 inches of rain along the coast.
  • That could prompt deadly floods.
  • Climate scientists say Florence's behavior isn't an anomaly — hurricanes are getting wetter and slower. Here's why.


Hurricane Florence's rain and wind are hitting the US East Coast, bringing 105 mph winds, a life-threatening storm surge, and extremely heavy rain.

The storm's center is expected to make landfall near the border between North and South Carolina. Hurricane-force winds extend 80 miles out, and its storm surge could be devastating, as a wall of water up to 13 feet high pushes its way into the shore.

But the worst impact of the storm may actually come from the rain.

The National Hurricane Center predicts that the storm will sit over the Carolinas all weekend, stalling over portions of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia, until Sunday morning. Projections suggest that Florence will barely budge on Friday and Saturday, and its eye will take more than two full days to drift from the coast into central South Carolina.

During that time, up to 40 inches of rain could fall over parts of North Carolina's coast, prompting immense floods. Even areas as far inland as Charlotte and Raleigh could get between 6 and 10 inches of rain.

Several factors are combining to create this worrisome situation: a high-pressure ridge of calmer weather is developing west of the Ohio Valley, and ocean and air temperatures are higher than average. 

Why Florence will get stuck

High-pressure ridges form when warm air in the upper atmosphere descends toward the Earth, making for clear, cloudless skies. This provides a natural barrier for swirling storms like Florence. 

"Hurricanes cannot plow through regions of high pressure, they prefer to go around them," James Done, an atmospheric scientist from the National Center for Atmospheric Research, told Business Insider in an email on Tuesday. "In this case, there's not an easy way around this high pressure."

So this weather system coming in from the west will essentially block Hurricane Florence from moving and dispersing, holding the storm in place.

The National Weather Service is warning that "thousands of homes and businesses will be filled with water" in the storm-affected area. Roads on wet ground will likely erode from underneath.

It's similar to what happened last year when Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. Harvey was downgraded to a tropical depression when it made landfall — with winds of less than 39 mph — but it lingered for days, hanging over low-lying Houston and causing devastating flooding.

Hurricanes are becoming wetter 

The second reason that Florence could bring deadly rainfall and flooding is part of a larger trend in hurricane developmentstorms are becoming wetter and more powerful as the oceans and air warm up. 

Peak rain rates, which arrive when the fierce core of a storm is overhead, have increased 30% over the past 60 years, according to Andreas Prein, a project scientist with the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research.

5 major us hurricanes compared

This is due to greenhouse gases from fossil fuels, which trap more heat on the planet and make the air and oceans warmer as a result. Warmer air can hold more water vapor, and this allows storms to become stronger and produce more rain.

Hurricanes are also fed by warm ocean water, which pumps more heat and evaporating seawater up into a storm. The surface water in the ocean needs to be at least 80 degrees Fahrenheit in order for a hurricane to get swirling. (That's why they don't appear during the winter.) Currently, sea surface temperatures off the Carolinas are 3 or 4 degrees Fahrenheit higher than average for this time of year, giving Florence more fuel than previous storms that hit the region. 

Because Florence is trapped by that high-pressure ridge and likely to stick around over warmer water for longer, that could give the storm even more strength.

More powerful hurricanes also bring higher storm-surge levels, a problem that's exacerbated by sea-level rise. Hurricane Florence's storm surge could be as high as 13 feet in places like Cape Fear and Cape Lookout on the coast of North Carolina. 

Hurricanes typically lose strength as they move over land, but the warmer air and water means there's more energy available to fuel their destructive paths. When storms like Florence have more moisture to draw from, they maintain more strength as they move inland, bringing devastating flooding and strong winds along with them. 

"Storms are going to move deeper inland and affect more people," climate scientist Cindy Bruyere, who studies storms at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, recently told Business Insider. The trend means places where people aren't used to being in the flood path could be inundated. 

Eastern North Carolina has a moderate to high risk of flash floods as the storm arrives, but flash flooding is possible up into Maryland and the southern tip of Pennsylvania, per National Weather Service.

Storms are getting sluggish

Stalled storms like Harvey — and potentially Florence — might represent a new normal, according to recent research from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 

The analysis, done by by NOAA researcher James Kossin, shows that hurricanes, typhoons, and tropical storms are moving more slowly over the Earth's surface, especially over land. Storms slowed by an average of 10% from 1949 to 2016, that analysis found. 

This cyclone slowdown is likely caused by changes in the circulation of Earth's atmosphere due to climate change, Kossin said. Over the 67-year period he studied, the average global temperature rose by 0.5 degrees Celsius. 

Stronger, wetter, slower storms are becoming a life-threatening consequence of living in a warmer world.

          Huracán Florence mantiene su peligrosidad tras bajar a categoría 2      Cache   Translate Page      

La Prensa

Washington, Estados UnidosAutoridades de EEUU advirtieron ayer de las graves lluvias, vientos e inundaciones que puede provocar el huracán Florence, que amenaza con golpear la costa atlántica dentro de pocas horas.

DatoEn el Atlántico está activo otro huracán, Helene, que ayer perdió intensidad y bajó a categoría 1 al reducir sus vientos máximos sostenidos a 140 km/h.

Florence se degradó anoche a categoría 2 en la escala de cinco de Saffir-Simpson, pero aún se prevé que sea “muy peligroso” cuando se acerque hoy y mañana a la costa este de EEUU, advirtió el Centro Nacional de Huracanes (NHC) .

Según los pronósticos, Florence avanzaba sobre el océano Atlántico con vientos máximos sostenidos de unos 175 km/h.

De acuerdo con la trayectoria, tocará tierra en los estados de Carolina del Sur, Carolina del Norte y Virginia.

Huracán Florence cae a categoría 2 a menos de 500 kilómetros de EEUULas órdenes de evacuación alcanzan a unas 1,7 millones de personas en esos tres estados, que declararon el estado de emergencia al igual que Maryland y el distrito federal, Washington DC (Columbia).

Se prevé que Florence se desvíe hacia el sur en dirección a Georgia, que ayer se sumó a las declaratorias de emergencia en previsión de las fuertes lluvias y marejadas.

“Se esperan algunas fluctuaciones en la intensidad del sistema hasta el jueves”, aunque se prevé un “lento debilitamiento” a partir de la tarde de este día, agregaron los meteorólogos del NHC, con sede en Miami.

Sin embargo, se pronostica que Florence sea todavía un “extremadamente peligroso huracán de categoría mayor cuando se aproxime a la costa estadounidense”.

Los expertos del NHC alertaron de nuevo sobre el gran peligro de “marejada ciclónica” a lo largo de las costas de Carolina del Norte y Carolina del Sur.

Con la aproximación de Florence a Estados Unidos, el NHC emitió una aviso de huracán desde South Santee River (Carolina del Sur) hasta Duck, Albemarle y Pamlico Sounds (Carolina del Norte), y una vigilancia de huracán desde Edisto Beach (Carolina del Sur) hasta Carolina del Norte y la frontera con Virginia.

“Es imperativo que todos sigan las órdenes locales de evacuación”, dijo el presidente Donald Trump, que publicó en Twitter un video instando a la gente a “no jugar” con este huracán.

“Esta tormenta es extremadamente peligrosa.

¡Cuídense!”, agregó, tras asegurar que el gobierno federal está “listo” para atender la emergencia, rechazando las críticas por su respuesta el año pasado al huracán María, que causó 3,000 muertos.

HondureñosAutoridades de Honduras llamaron a los más de 100,000 inmigrantes hondureños residentes en la costa este de EEUU a acatar las advertencias de evacuación en las zonas que serán impactadas por Florence.

La cónsul general de Honduras en Atlanta, María Fernanda Rivera, dijo que se habilitó una línea de emergencia para que los hondureños puedan solicitar información sobre los albergues disponibles en Carolina del Sur y del Norte, donde exite la orden de evacuación obligatoria.

“A nivel de consulado nos estamos preparando para asistir a nuestros compatriotas en los estados afectados por el huracán, estamos en constante monitoreo de Fema y otras agencias locales, dando seguimiento a las órdenes ejecutivas y de evacuación y habilitamos un número de teléfono, disponible las 24 horas, para que nos llamen o nos escriban al WhatsApp para solicitar información sobre albergues y rutas de evacuación”, agregó Rivera.

También instó a los hondureños indocumentados a salir de las zonas costeras ante la gravedad del ciclón y refugiarse en los albergues puestos a disposición por las autoridades estadounidenses.

“Los hondureños que se encuentren en la costa deben salir de las zonas de riesgo, no importa su estatus migratorio, serán recibidos en los albergues.

Las autoridades migratorias han suspendido los operativos ante la emergencia por el huracán”, explicó.

“Hay algunos que tienen familiares en las ciudades más céntricas y pueden buscar refugio allí”, agregó la cónsul.

En Jacksonville (Carolina del Norte) las gasolineras cerraron y en Raleigh seguían las evacuaciones.

Como un golpe de Mike TysonFlorence va a ser “como un directo de Mike Tyson en la costa de las Carolinas”, dijo Jeff Byard, de la Agencia Federal para el Manejo de Emergencias de EEUU (Fema).

110,000hondureños residen en los estados de Carolina del Sur, Carolina del Norte y Georgia, según datos de la Cancillería de Honduras.

Byard advirtió sobre cortes de energía, cierres de carreteras, daños a la infraestructura y posibles pérdidas de vidas, enfatizando en la necesidad de evacuar.

Las carreteras de una amplia zona de la costa este estaban ayer congestionadas, con largas filas de autos que buscaban alejarse de Florence.

En Wilmington, un balneario de Carolina del Norte con poco más de 100,000 habitantes, el sol brillaba sobre las calles desiertas, con tiendas y casas selladas con tablas de madera, supermercados vacíos y estaciones de servicio desabastecidas.

“Mucha gente ya se fue.

Los medios a veces tienden a hacer las cosas más grandes de lo que realmente son”, dijo Mary Glover, al estacionar su 4x4 para tomar una foto de los mensajes a su alrededor: “Wilmington está blindado”, “Flo, no eres bienvenida aquí”, se podía leer frente al bar Tavern Law.

Sentado en un banco, Ken Price disfrutaba de la calma antes de la tormenta.

“Los próximos días pueden ser bastante largos”, dijo tranquilo.

          Hurricane Florence Starts To Hit The Carolina Coast With High Winds And Rushing Seas       Cache   Translate Page      

Updated at 2 p.m. ET

Hurricane Florence's heavy rains and tropical storm-force winds reached North Carolina's Outer Banks on Thursday morning, leading the way for a storm packing 105-mph winds. Florence has weakened a bit over the past 24 hours, but it has also grown larger and will likely dump torrential rain over North and South Carolina through Monday.

Before noon on Thursday, a rush of ocean water had already invaded the streets on the southern end of North Carolina's Hatteras Island, according to The Virginian-Pilot's Jeff Hampton, who said arterial roads were at risk of being impassable after water overwhelmed the dunes.

"Little change in strength is expected before the eye of Florence reaches the coast, with weakening expected after the center moves inland," the National Hurricane Center said. Florence is currently a Category 2 storm.

Despite the drop in wind strength, the most dangerous threat comes from Florence's rains and storm surge, which could bring flooding far inland.

"The larger and slower the storm is, the greater the threat and impact, and we have that here," NHC Director Ken Graham said Thursday. He added later, "Most of the fatalities in these tropical systems is water."

Florence was about 110 miles east-southeast of Wilmington, N.C., at 2 p.m. ET Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said. The storm was moving northwest at 10 mph. It's currently predicted to make landfall near Wilmington and then head west across South Carolina.

Hurricane conditions will likely hit the Carolina coast on Thursday night or early Friday. And Florence's large wind field will add to the perils as the storm grinds over beaches and inland.

"You're going to have damaging winds for a longer period of time," senior hurricane specialist Stacy Stewart said in an update from the NHC. "So instead of maybe 120 mph winds for 30 minutes, you might end up with 90-100 mph winds for a couple of hours, or three or four hours. And that will produce a lot of damage as well as prolong the beach erosion."

A hurricane warning is in effect for a big chunk of the Carolina coast, from the South Santee River below Myrtle Beach, S.C., to Duck, N.C. — part of the Outer Banks. The warning also includes Albemarle and Pamlico sounds, large bodies of water in North Carolina that could see significant flooding.

Despite the drop in maximum sustained winds, forecasters stress that this hurricane is not to be taken lightly. Hundreds of thousands of people have already evacuated. Officials are urging others in its path to follow suit, or prepare for the worst.

"Do not focus on the wind speed category of #Hurricane #Florence!" the National Hurricane Center said Thursday morning. "Life-threatening storm surge flooding, catastrophic flash flooding and prolonged significant river flooding are still expected."

Forecasters say Florence will likely turn to the west-northwest and slow down its forward motion — a situation that will bring even more rainfall to the area. The storm's 12-mph forward speed Thursday morning was a marked drop from Wednesday's 17-mph speeds.

The storm surge — often the most perilous risk to life posed by any hurricane — is expected to inundate areas along the coast with saltwater that's 9 to 13 feet deep, from Cape Fear, N.C., to Cape Lookout, N.C. A surge of at least 4 feet is predicted for a much larger area.

Calling the storm surge prediction "incredible," Graham said that because Florence will likely nudge its way onto the coast, giving its hurricane winds lots of time to force water inland, he wouldn't be surprised "to see storm surge a mile, a mile and a half inland – maybe even 2 miles or more, in some cases."

The latest rainfall projections warn of 20 to 40 inches of rain from coastal North Carolina into northeastern South Carolina — amounts that could bring "catastrophic flash flooding," the hurricane center said. The rest of South and North Carolina, including cities from Charlotte to Raleigh, can expect 6 to 12 inches of rain — and up to 2 feet in isolated areas, the NHC warned. That forecast area also includes part of southwest Virginia.

Florence is projecting hurricane-force winds outward up to 80 miles from its center; tropical-storm-force winds are swirling outward up to 195 miles away. In addition to the hurricane's obvious risks, the National Weather Service says, "A few tornadoes are possible in eastern North Carolina through Friday."

The hurricane center says Hurricane Florence will likely carry sustained winds of 110 mph within the next 12 hours. That puts it at the upper range of Category 2 storms, which have winds from 96 to 110 mph.

Here's how the weather service defines the risks involved with a Category 2 hurricane:

"Extremely dangerous winds will cause extensive damage: Well-constructed frame homes could sustain major roof and siding damage. Many shallowly rooted trees will be snapped or uprooted and block numerous roads. Near-total power loss is expected with outages that could last from several days to weeks."

          Hurricane Florence: Travel Begins To Snarl As Storm Closes In       Cache   Translate Page      

Many seaports and airports along the southeastern U.S. coastline have been shut down, more than 1,000 flights have been canceled, and some highways and bridges in low-lying coastal areas could close soon, as Hurricane Florence gets closer to making landfall.

Authorities in coastal areas that lie in the path of the massive storm are urging residents one last time to evacuate.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster's message is pretty blunt: If you live in an evacuation zone, hit the road soon.

"Once those high winds get here ... it will be very difficult, if not impossible, for anybody to come rescue you if you are in harm's way in one of those zones," McMaster said at a news conference Wednesday.

Authorities reversed the flow of traffic on the eastbound lanes of many highways to help residents evacuate and move inland more quickly, and that will continue in some areas for a while Thursday.

"The traffic control points or lane reversals are still in effect," said Joseph Hill, police chief in Horry County, S.C., at a news conference Wednesday in Myrtle Beach. But, Hill added, those lane reversals will end soon: "At that point, they'll shut 'em down for the incoming storm."

In South Carolina, Gov. McMaster says at least 300,000 people have already evacuated. But Hill said many residents still remained in their homes, possibly hoping to ride out the hurricane.

"You need to get out now," Hill told those who were staying behind. "We will not be able to respond to you when the winds get so high."

"So if you're in trouble, you're on your own," Hill added.

Gas shortages

For some residents, evacuation plans were hampered by gasoline shortages.

"There was no gas yesterday," says Rebecca Segool of Wilmington, N.C. "We sat in line for like a half hour at like five gas stations to get gas."

A significant number of gas stations, especially around Wilmington and the Raleigh-Durham area, were running out of fuel because of huge demand, according to Patrick DeHaan of the fuel price tracking service GasBuddy.com.

"Simply put, when you have tens of thousands of people that are trying to get out of harm's way and they're all filling up at the same time, certainly it overwhelms how much gasoline can be stored ... at gas stations."

DeHaan says there's plenty of supply at regional gasoline storage facilities, but the urgent need is making it difficult for tanker trucks to refill and then resupply gas stations.

"Sometimes tankers have to wait in line for hours to refuel their 10,000 gallon tanks," he says. "There are kinks in the chain and that causes stations in the meantime to go dry."

DeHaan adds that a shortage of tanker trucks and drivers contributes to a gasoline shortage, though he says some bigger companies are moving trucks and drivers into the region to help meet demand.

Supplies

The hurricane is exposing other chinks in the supply chain, as many retailers big and small are running low on storm-prep essentials, from batteries, generators and plywood to bread and bottled water.

Trucks are rushing into the region to restock store shelves, but Peggy Dorf, a freight and logistics market analyst for DAT Solutions, says they won't be for much longer.

"As soon as a storm is about to hit, all traffic stops in and out of the area until the storm calms down and the roads are clear," she says.

Clearing the roads of hurricane-blown debris could take a couple of days or even weeks, says Dorf, depending on the severity the storm.

"You could have a delay when power is out, bridges could be out, roads could be flooded and you won't be able to deliver goods and materials for reconstruction," says Dorf, "or for that matter, clean water and food and other important supplies like batteries."

Dorf says trucking companies and logistics firms are working with FEMA and state and local authorities to park trucks full of goods and materials needed in the recovery in temporary warehouse and staging areas just out of the path of the hurricane, so they can quickly move into affected areas once the storm clears.

Airports

Air travel could be all but stopped for several days, too.

"We currently have a travel alert which has been posted for 23 airports from Virginia all the way through Georgia on the East Coast," says Ross Feinstein, spokesman for American Airlines.

Some airports are already closed, others may cease operations Thursday, and American and other airlines are moving their planes to higher and drier ground.

"They're very expensive pieces of machinery and high-tech aircraft that we do not want to have near any type of storms with high winds that could possibly damage that equipment," Feinstein says, adding that local airport authorities also don't want airplanes left at gates or on the tarmac when the hurricane hits, because they could add to damage and debris and hinder cleanup and recovery efforts.

Feinstein notes that with the hurricane's change of direction to a more southerly track Wednesday, it appears Florence no longer poses a threat to Charlotte, one of American's busiest hubs, minimizing the impact on the airline's operations there.

Still, there are several other North and South Carolina airports in the storm's path. American, Delta, Southwest, United, and others will likely be canceling hundred more flights through the weekend.

When flight operations can resume will depend on how long Florence sticks around, and forecasters predict it could sit and drench areas of the Carolinas with a deluge of rainwater over a couple of days.

"That is a concern our team of meteorologists has — if it stalls and how much rain could possibly fall within a certain period of time," says Feinstein, adding concerns that there could be "massive flooding of runways and other infrastructure."

If the rain forecasts hold true, it could take some time for not just planes, but cars, trucks, trains, and even some emergency vehicles to return to the hardest hit areas.

          NOS4A2: Zachary Quinto lands key role in Joe Hill adaptation      Cache   Translate Page      
Tony Sokol Kirsten Howard
Sep 13, 2018

The Star Trek actor is coming back to television to play an immortal who sustains himself by feeding on the souls of children...

AMC is moving forward with new supernatural horror show, NOS4A2. The series, which was given the green light a few months back, is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Joe Hill, who will also executive produce.

Zarchary Quinto (Star Trek, Heroes, The Slap) will be the thing that goes bump in the night in the new project, according to THR.

Quinto is set to play the villainous Charlie Manx, an immortal "who sustains himself by feeding on the souls of children. He then drops what remains in Christmasland, a twisted Christmas village of Manx's imagination where it's always Christmas and unhappiness is illegal."

Ashleigh Cummings (The Goldfinch) will be the light to his darkness as "young, working-class artist" Vic McQueen, who "discovers she has a dangerous gift: a supernatural ability to track Manx. She sets out to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without falling under Manx's spell herself."

"As a huge fan of Joe Hill's rich, imaginative and exciting book, I am over the moon to be working with such a phenomenal cast and creative team on this special project," remarked showrunner Jami O'Brien (Fear The Walking Dead, Hell On Wheels) when news of Quinto's casting arrived.

More as we get it.

NOS4A2 release date

The 10-episode series is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television, and it looks like it could be heading for an autumn 2019 air date, in the US at least. We'll update you when we hear news of a UK broadcaster.

NOS4A2 crew

Hill’s novel Horns was adapted into a 2014 movie starring Daniel Radcliffe, and he wrote and executive produced the CW reboot of Tales From The Darkside.

“I couldn't be more excited about the forthcoming adaptation of NOS4A2. I know it's in good hands with showrunner Jami O'Brien: her beautifully composed scripts show a writer at the height of her powers, one who has an exquisite touch with character and a relentless instinct for suspense,” Hill said in a statement. “AMC's record speaks for itself: who wouldn't want to be in business with the ‘Mad Men’ who ‘Broke Bad’ and made ‘The Dead Walk?’ And Tornante's dedication to bringing singular visions to TV has freed everyone involved to do theirbest and truest work. I can't wait to see Vic McQueen turn the throttle and go after Charlie Manx in 2019. Let's ride.”

NOS4A2 was created for TV by Jami O'Brien (Fear The Walking Dead, Hell On Wheels), who will be the showrunner and will executive produce along with Lauren Corrao, Co-President of Tornante Television.

“I loved Joe Hill’s fantastic book from the moment I read it, and look forward to continuing to work with Joe, AMC, and Tornante on this exciting material,” O’Brien said in a statement.

NOS4A2 story

Here's the official synopsis of Hill's book from Amazon, which gives us further details on the bigger story:

“Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions

On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country.

Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls ‘Christmasland.’

Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son."

Hurricane Florence is slowing slightly, but growing in size, as its outer edges lash the eastern coast of the United States. Six nuclear power plants are in the path of the storm, which FEMA says is expected to deliver "a tremendous amount of rain" and a storm surge of up to 4 metres. More than 1.7 seven million people are under a madatory evacuation order, and 10 million are in the storm watch area. David Crawford says the last time they had a storm of this force was Hurricane Fran back in 1996. He's a resident of Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina. A lot of people being exacuated from the coast are heading there.

On Oslo anniversary, Trump’s US struggles with role as Mideast peace mediator-Though it is still touting the upcoming reveal of its peace plan, the administration is further away than ever from its traditional position in the process-By Francesco FONTEMAGGI-TOI-SEPT 12,18

WASHINGTON (AFP) — Twenty-five years ago, then US president Bill Clinton looked on as Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin shook hands on the White House lawn, sealing the Oslo accords.And in 1979, Jimmy Carter hosted the leaders of Israel and Egypt at Camp David — another indelible moment in diplomatic history.US President Donald Trump can only dream of such a scene unfolding on his watch.Under the president, the United States is further away than ever from playing its traditional role as mediator in the long-simmering Middle East peace process.Trump, a foreign policy novice, promised upon taking office to help broker the “ultimate deal” between Israel and the Palestinians.He tasked his son-in-law and senior aide Jared Kushner with leading a small group to make that happen. But that task force was seen by some as too close to Israel, and inexperienced in the world of high-stakes diplomacy.“It is something that I think is frankly, maybe, not as difficult as people have thought over the years,” Trump said in May 2017.But more than a year later, that notion has been brutally squashed.“All my life, I’ve heard that’s the hardest deal to make, and I’m starting to believe that maybe it is,” Trump said last week, though he added he still believed he could make it happen. ‘Peace through strength’? It’s true that since Trump took office, the situation has radically changed.At first, the Palestinians offered the mercurial president the benefit of the doubt. But late last year, they froze all contact with Washington after Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.That stance crossed a stark red line for Palestinian leaders, and flew in the face of decades of international consensus that the status of the Holy City should be determined via negotiations.Since the breakdown in US-Palestinian ties, the Trump administration has redoubled efforts to both punish Palestinian leaders and twist their arm so that they return to talks with Israel.US aid has been effectively wiped out, as has its support for the UN agency that assists three million Palestinian refugees, known as UNRWA.And on Monday, Washington ordered the closure of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s mission in the US capital — an about-face 25 years after PLO leader Arafat was welcomed at the White House.Trump says he wants to achieve “peace through strength” — but is that viable anymore? US officials “believe that Palestinians can be convinced that they have lost and must take whatever set of arrangements — perhaps some limited form of autonomy with economic sweeteners — that they are offered,” says Michele Dunne, a researcher at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.According to Dunne, the Americans appear to be trying to take the thorniest issues — the status of Jerusalem, the right of return to Israel for Palestinians, and Palestinian statehood — off the negotiating table.“Clearly those issues remain highly relevant to Palestinians as well as many other Arabs and Muslims,” Dunne noted, adding: “It seems very unlikely that Palestinians will fold in that way.”-Mystery peace plan-The Palestinian Authority has denied Trump the role of Middle Ease peace mediator that Washington enjoyed for decades.But that is no surprise to Aaron David Miller, a former negotiator for both Republican and Democratic administrations on Middle East issues, who says Washington has never really been an “honest broker.”“Our relationship with Israel has prevented us from being a honest broker,” Miller told AFP.“We can be at certain times what I call an effective broker. We’ve used that relationship at times to reach agreements between Arabs and Israelis,” he said, citing the Camp David and Oslo accords.For now, however, “we have compromised, undermined and abandoned any possibility of being an effective broker,” said Miller, who is the Middle East program director at the Wilson Center, a Washington think tank.“I’ve never seen an administration that is so preternaturally supportive of Israel and at the same time so hostile towards the Palestinian piece of this peace equation.”The issue is such a minefield that Kushner’s team has not even found the right time to unveil its long-awaited peace plan — its unveiling has been delayed for months.But the White House insists the plan has not been abandoned.“It’s an extraordinarily ambitious project that the administration has undertaken,” National Security Advisor John Bolton said Monday.“The sensitivity and the appropriateness of the timing of rolling it out are difficult questions.”Miller says barring a real surprise, such as a roadmap to Palestinian statehood with East Jerusalem as its capital, “the most likely outcome is a ‘no’ from the Palestinians.”Such a refusal may even be the White House’s goal, Dunne says, so it can “use the Palestinians’ inevitable rejection as a justification for further changes to the US position on behalf of Israeli claims to the West Bank.”

More than 44,000 Catholic women have signed a letter pressing Pope Francis to explain exactly when and how he found out about sexual abuse and misconduct allegations against a high-ranking former cardinal.“Our hearts are broken, our faith tested, by the escalating crisis engulfing our beloved Church,” states the passionately worded letter organized by the Catholic Women’s Forum. “We are angry, betrayed and disillusioned.”“We, your flock, deserve your answers now.”For the past two weeks, Francis’ papacy has been thrown into crisis by claims that U.S. cardinals and Vatican officials covered up for then-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Even though the Vatican has known about his allegedly abusive behavior with seminarians since at least 2000, McCarrick received clerical promotions and continued publicly representing the church, The Associated Press reports.The accusations against Francis himself were brought up by the Vatican’s former U.S. ambassador, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano. The archbishop, who has long been a critic of the Argentine pontiff, claims Francis rehabilitated McCarrick, lifting canonical sanctions imposed by his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI.Francis officially removed McCarrick from ministry in June after a church investigation determined that he had sexually abused an altar boy in 1971. McCarrick resigned from the College of Cardinals the following month.Soon after Vigano’s allegations came to light, Francis told reporters that he would “not say a single word” on the subject and suggested that journalists read Vigano’s claims and make up their own minds.The archbishop’s accusations and Francis’ silence have roiled the U.S. Catholic Church, with some in the hierarchy coming to the pope’s defense while others demand a thorough investigation. On Tuesday, the Vatican said Francis will meet with a delegation of U.S. cardinals and bishops about the issue on Thursday.The thousands of signatures on the letter to Pope Francis are evidence of how deeply this crisis has affected Catholic women, who see themselves as the backbone of the church.The letter from the Catholic Women’s Forum, an international network that seeks to amplify the voices of faithful Catholic women, has continued to gather signatures since it was first published on Aug. 30. Signers include prominent female American Catholic theologians, professors, business executives, writers and speakers. Mary Rice Hasson, the forum’s director, told HuffPost that the group’s web team is working hard to delete duplicate signatures. They are also deleting any signatures from men, who are being asked to sign a separate online letter.The women’s letter has already been sent to the pope twice ― through personal channels and through the apostolic nuncio in Washington, D.C. Hasson said via email that as long as the number of signatures continues to swell, the organization will continue to send it to Francis weekly.Hasson added that she’s not surprised by the surge of signatures, given the “depth of feeling” around this issue. Although the number of abuse cases involving priests dropped sharply after the Catholic Church adopted reforms in 2002, she said the church is still falling short in holding the hierarchy accountable and acknowledging sexual misconduct by bishops and cardinals.“These women love our Church, and they are heartbroken and appalled, not only at the underlying abuse, but also by an ecclesial culture that looked the other way in the face of egregious sexual abuse and misconduct,” Hasson wrote.The letter to the pope specifically states that the women want to know when Francis learned about McCarrick’s alleged sexual misconduct and abuse, and whether Francis released the former cardinal from any restrictions imposed by Benedict. In the letter, the Catholic Women’s Forum also takes the opportunity to remind Francis how important women are to the church. Fifty-four percent of American Catholics are women, according to the Pew Research Center. Catholic women are more likely than men to say they attend Mass at least once a week (43 percent vs. 35 percent) and more likely to say they pray every day (67 percent vs. 49 percent).“We are not second-class Catholics to be brushed off while bishops and cardinals handle matters privately,” the letter states. “We are the hands, the feet, and the heart of the Church. In short, we are the Church, every bit as much as the cardinals and bishops around you.”Hasson said she was heartened by reports that the Vatican is preparing a response to Vigano’s allegations, describing it as simply “the right thing to do.”“Our Church leaders need to realize that we cannot go back to ‘business as usual,’ absent significant efforts to address the situation,” Hasson said.This article originally appeared on HuffPost.

Public gatherings banned in Zimbabwe capital over cholera-[AFP]-Reagan MASHAVAVE-YAHOONEWS-September 12, 2018

Harare (AFP) - Zimbabwe on Wednesday banned public gatherings in the capital Harare following a cholera outbreak that has claimed at least 21 lives and left hundreds of people ill over the past week.The outbreak, first detected in the township of Glen View outside Harare, has prompted the health ministry to declare an emergency in the city."In light of the declaration of the state of emergency, the police in Harare will not allow any public gatherings," police spokeswoman Charity Charamba said in a statement."The Zimbabwe Republic Police is appealing to members of the public to take heed of the warning and cooperate as this will assist in alleviating the continuous spread of cholera."The ban came ahead of a planned rally by the opposition MDC party on Saturday at which it was due to hold a mock presidential inauguration of party leader Nelson Chamisa, who it claims was denied victory in the July 30 election due to fraud.At least 21 people, including two pupils from the same school, have died over the past week in Harare from cholera and at least 3,000 haven fallen ill from cholera and typhoid, according to the health ministry."We are now at 3,067 cases... The number of deaths has risen to 21," health minister Obadiah Moyo told reporters on Tuesday.One school was closed in Glen View. - Lack of clean water, infrastructure - Chamisa toured a health facility and called on the United Nations to help contain the situation."It's more than just an emergency it is a national disaster," he said.Britain warned people thinking of visiting Harare about the cholera outbreak and urged travellers to learn to recognise symptoms of the disease.Cholera outbreaks have occurred regularly in the city as authorities struggle to provide potable water and sanitation facilities.Informal housing areas without running water have mushroomed and basic infrastructure has collapsed due to years of neglect.Tests on water samples from some wells and boreholes showed the water was contaminated with cholera and typhoid-causing bacteria.Zimbabwe, which was ruled by Robert Mugabe from independence in 1980 until his ousting last year, suffered its worst cholera outbreak in 2008.A total of 4,000 people died and at least 100,000 people fell ill.President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who succeeded Mugabe, has pledged to revive the economy and improve public services."To contain the outbreak and mobilise resources we have declared a state of emergency in Harare, and are working closely with our international partners," Mnangagwa said Wednesday on Twitter.Amnesty International castigated the authorities for failing to invest in and manage basic water, sanitation and health care systems even after the 2008 outbreak."It is appalling that in 2018, people are still dying of such a preventable disease," said Jessica Pwiti, director of Amnesty International Zimbabwe said in a statement."No lessons were learned from the 2008 epidemic and the outbreak and deaths we're seeing now is symptomatic of a still broken-down sanitation infrastructure and poor sewer management, worsened by shortages of drugs and medical supplies."She urged the Mnangagwa administration to "learn from its predecessor's mistakes" and act urgently before more lives are lost.UNICEF advised Zimbabweans to prevent the spread of cholera by regular hand-washing, drinking only safe water, washing food, cooking it throughly, and avoiding shaking hands.

Assad used chemical weapons in three attacks this year — UN report-Investigators say chlorine strikes, some of which utilized Iranian artillery, constitute war crimes-By AFP-SEP 12,18

The Syrian government committed war crimes by using chlorine in three attacks against civilians in 2018, UN investigators said in a report released Wednesday.The forces of President Bashar Assad used the banned chemical weapons in attacks on Douma, near Damascus, on January 22 and February 1, as well as in the northern Idlib province on February 4, the report quoted by Reuters said.An unspecified number of civilians were injured in the three attacks, including women and children.“To recapture eastern Ghouta in April, government forces launched numerous indiscriminate attacks in densely populated civilian areas, which included the use of chemical weapons,” it said.“The Commission concludes that, on these two occasions, government forces and or affiliated militias committed the war crimes of using prohibited weapons and launching indiscriminate attacks in civilian-populated areas in eastern Ghouta.”It added that “the munitions documented were built around industrially-produced Iranian artillery rockets known to have been supplied to forces commanded by the government.”In Idlib “Government helicopters dropped at least two barrels carrying chlorine payloads in the Taleel area of Saraqeb.”The report was based on hundreds of interviews with figures on the ground. It brings the number of chemical attacks confirmed to have been committed by Assad’s troops since 2013 to 33. Six more attacks have not been definitively linked to the regime.On Tuesday US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Assad has been well warned against any chemical weapons use in an anticipated assault on Idlib province.The regime has twice been targeted by US air and missile strikes after previous alleged chemical attacks.US officials have in recent days said additional action would follow if Assad were to use the banned weapons in rebel-held Idlib.“In Idlib, we’re watching very closely what the Assad regime, aided and abetted by the Iranians and the Russians are up to,” Mattis told Pentagon reporters.Pointing to a US missile strike on a Syrian air base in April 2017 after Assad’s jets launched an alleged chemical attack in Idlib, Mattis noted that the Syrian leader had suffered massive losses to his air force.“The first time around, he lost 17 percent of his pointy-nosed air force airplanes,” Mattis said, referring to the unusual nose cones on Russian-built jets. “He’s been warned, and so we’ll see if he’s wised up.”A second strike, in April this year, saw British and French militaries assist the US-led mission.Idlib province and adjacent rural areas form the largest piece of territory still held by Syria’s beleaguered rebels, worn down by a succession of government victories in recent months.Assad has now set his sights on Idlib, and his forces have stepped up bombardment of the densely populated province since the beginning of the month.

Senior minister threatens Iran with attack if it continues nuclear development-Israel Katz says Islamic Republic had better accede to Trump’s demands or face ‘direct threat from the US and its allies’-By AP and TOI staff-SEP 12,18

If Iran chooses to continue pursuing a nuclear program it will face a “military” response, Intelligence Minister Israel Katz warned Wednesday.Katz was responding to the Iranian nuclear chief’s statement that the Islamic Republic’s program stands ready to build advanced centrifuges and further enrich uranium.Ali Akbar Salehi told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Iran wouldn’t be deterred by US President Donald Trump’s sanctions and withdrawal from the global nuclear deal.But Katz said that if Iran presses forward it will face a “direct threat from the United States and its allies.”The US withdrawal from the deal in May has already badly shaken Iran’s economy, crashing its currency, the rial. Katz said Iran could either cave to Trump’s demands or watch its economy collapse.Salehi had said he hoped the atomic deal would survive, but warned the program would be in a stronger position than ever if not.In a veiled threat to Israel, Salehi said the consequences would be “harsh” if there were any new attacks targeting Iran’s nuclear scientists. A string of bombings, blamed on Israel, targeted a number of scientists beginning in 2010, at the height of Western concerns over Iran’s program.Israel never claimed responsibility for the attacks on the scientists, though Israeli officials have boasted in the past about the reach of the country’s intelligence services. “I hope that they will not commit a similar mistake again because the consequences would be, I think, harsh,” Salehi warned.Israel earlier this year removed tens of thousands of documents and other materials from Iran’s secret nuclear weapons program archive, stealing them from under the regime’s nose in a Mossad operation in Tehran. The material proved that Iran lied when claiming it was not seeking to build a nuclear weapons arsenal, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, and showed that it intends to resume its nuclear weapons program if it can.Salehi also said that Trump’s decision to withdraw America from the 2015 accord “puts him on the loser’s side” of history. He added, “That deal could have paved the way for building the trust and the confidence that we had lost.”The 2015 accord, struck under then-president Barack Obama’s administration, saw Iran agree to limit its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions.Salehi also spoke about Iran’s efforts to build a new facility at Natanz’s uranium enrichment center that will produce more advanced centrifuges. Those devices enrich uranium by rapidly spinning uranium hexafluoride gas.For now, the nuclear accord limits Iran to using a limited number of an older model, called IR-1s.The new facility will allow Iran to build versions called the IR-2M, IR-4 and IR-6. The IR-2M and the IR-4 can enrich uranium five times faster than an IR-1, while the IR-6 can do it 10 times faster, Salehi said. Western experts have suggested these centrifuges produce three to five times more enriched uranium in a year than the IR-1s.While building the facility doesn’t violate the nuclear deal, mass production of advanced centrifuges would. Salehi, however, said that wasn’t immediately a plan.“This does not mean that we are going to produce these centrifuges now. This is just a preparation,” he said. “In case Iran decides to start producing in mass production such centrifuges, (we) would be ready for that.”Salehi suggested that if the nuclear deal fell apart, Iran would react in stages. He suggested one step may be uranium enrichment going to “20 percent because this is our need.” He also suggested Iran could increase its stockpile of enriched uranium. Any withdrawal ultimately would be approved by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.While the UN repeatedly has verified Iran’s compliance with the deal, Trump campaigned on a promise to tear it up. In May, he withdrew the US in part because he said the deal wasn’t permanent and didn’t address Iran’s ballistic missile program and its influence across the wider Middle East. But Trump meanwhile has tweeted he’d accept talks without preconditions with Tehran.Asked what he personally would tell Trump if he had the chance, Salehi chuckled and said: “I certainly would tell him he has made the wrong move on Iran.”

Putin says North Korea doing a lot to disarm but Washington not responding-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-September 12, 2018

VLADIVOSTOK, Russia (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that North Korea was taking a lot of steps toward denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula but Washington was not responding and was making endless demands for full disarmament instead.Washington and Pyongyang have been discussing North Korea's nuclear program since their leaders met in Singapore in June, though that summit's outcome was criticized for being short on details about how and whether North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was willing to give up weapons that threaten the United States.Putin, speaking at an economic forum in the Russian port city of Vladivostok, said Pyongyang had taken positive steps and was now waiting for a response. He said it was counter-productive if one side did a lot and the other did nothing."If North Korea does something toward denuclearization it expects reciprocal steps and not endless demands for full disarmament," said Putin.Putin said it was also important that North Korea received international guarantees about its own security and said Kim Jong Un was welcome to visit Russia at any time that was convenient for him.The White House said on Monday that U.S. President Donald Trump had received a letter from Kim Jong Un asking for a second meeting.(Reporting by Denis Pinchuk, Polina Nikolskaya and Vladimir Soldatkin; Writing by Andrew Osborn; Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)

Residents told to ‘get out now’ as Florence takes aim at Carolinas-As fleeing cars fill state highways, North Carolina governor warns residents the approaching hurricane ‘is not a storm people need to ride out’-By Sebastien duval and Leila Macor-TOI-SEP 12,18

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, North Carolina (AFP) — Highways clogged with people fleeing North and South Carolina early Wednesday as monstrous Category 4 Hurricane Florence rumbled toward the eastern US as the biggest storm there in decades.While many coastal residents heeded mandatory evacuation orders, others boarded up homes and businesses and chose to brave the storm, which is forecast to trigger severe flash flooding as it dumps as many as three feet (almost a meter) of rain in some areas. Life-threatening storm surges of up to a staggering 13 feet in some places were also forecast.North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned that staying put would be a grave mistake and said people in evacuation zones “need to get out now.”“This is not a storm that people need to ride out,” Cooper told reporters. “This is a storm that is historic, maybe once in a lifetime.”Up to 1.7 million people in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia have been given voluntary or mandatory evacuation orders, according to emergency management officials, as the storm churned across the Atlantic Ocean towards the coast.The eastbound lanes of several major highways have been shut down to allow for a smooth flow of traffic inland.“We are already experiencing heavily impacted traffic on some of the evacuation routes,” said Jeff Byard, the associate administrator for response and recovery at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).Forecasters are predicting that Florence will make landfall in the Carolinas late Thursday or early Friday as a still powerful Category 3 hurricane.As of 5:00 am (1100 GMT), Florence was a dangerous Category 4 hurricane packing sustained winds of 130 miles per hour (220 kilometers per hour), the Miami-based National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.It was located 575 miles (925 kms) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and moving at 17 mph (28 kph) in a west-northwest direction.Briefing from the Oval Office, President Donald Trump urged people to heed orders to evacuate, saying “if you are asked to leave, get out.”“This will be a storm that’s going to be far larger than we have seen in perhaps decades,” Trump said.Speaking in the Oval Office alongside Trump, FEMA administrator Brock Long said Florence may be a “very devastating storm.”“The power will be off for weeks,” Long said. “You’re going to be displaced from your home in coastal areas. There will be flooding in inland areas as well.”Byard, the FEMA official, said “this storm is not going to be a glancing blow.”“This storm is going to be a direct hit.”“Hurricane Florence is the strongest storm to target the Carolinas and this part of our country in decades,” Byard said.The NHC said Florence is expected to be an “extremely dangerous major hurricane” when it makes landfall in the Carolinas late Thursday or early Friday, bringing life-threatening storm surge to coastal areas.A state of emergency has been declared in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington amid concern over potential torrential rain and flooding.The last time the US capital declared a state of emergency was in January 2016 when a winter storm dubbed “Snowzilla” blanketed the capital region in knee-deep snow.In Charleston, South Carolina, some residents were making preparations to leave Tuesday while others planned to ride out the storm.Streets were quiet with schools and many offices and businesses closed.Michael Kennedy, an engineer at Boeing, said he planned to leave on Tuesday for his parents’ home in Atlanta, Georgia.But his partner, Emily Whisler, said she will remain behind at the university where she is a resident in the psychiatry program.“They told me to bring a pillow and blanket,” Whisler said. “I’ll be living there for a few days.”Charleston, resident William Belli said he would not be among those joining the exodus.“Been through it!” Belli said, referring to Hurricane Hugo, which caused widespread damage in South Carolina in 1989. “Not worried in the least.”Walking his dog along empty streets, Belli said he’s well stocked with food and water.“I will enjoy the quiet,” he said.South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster on Monday ordered the mandatory evacuation of one million coastal residents. Schools in 26 of the state’s 46 counties were ordered closed from Tuesday.Cooper, the governor of neighboring North Carolina, ordered an evacuation of the Outer Banks, barrier islands that are a popular tourist destination, and parts of coastal Dare County.In Virginia, 245,000 coastal residents were ordered to evacuate including from the Eastern Shore, another popular beachfront destination.In neighboring Maryland, Governor Larry Hogan said his state was readying for potentially “historic and catastrophic rainfall, life-threatening flooding, and high winds.”On the five-level Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale Florence is a Category 4, meaning it is capable of causing “catastrophic damage.”By Saturday, total rainfall could accumulate to 20 inches (51 centimeters) — or even 30 inches in places — in parts of the Carolinas and Virginia, the NHC said.Fort AP Hill and Fort Bragg were selected as FEMA Incident Support and Federal Staging Area to assist in the response, the army said.The Virginia National Guard is planning to initially bring up to 1,500 soldiers and airmen to offer help in the state’s response operations.Some 7,000 guard members are ready to mobilize in North Carolina, while 1,100 will be activated in South Carolina.At this height of the Atlantic hurricane season, Florence was being trailed on east-to-west paths by two other storms, Hurricane Helene and Tropical Storm Isaac, but neither packs the deadly punch of Florence.

Monster' Hurricane Florence to pummel U.S. Southeast for days-[Reuters]-By Ernest ScheyderYAHOONEWS-September 13, 2018

WILMINGTON, N.C. (Reuters) - Hurricane Florence, on track to become the first Category 4 storm to make a direct hit on North Carolina in six decades, howled closer to shore on Tuesday, threatening to unleash deadly pounding surf, days of torrential rain and severe flooding.Fierce winds and massive waves are expected to lash the coasts of North and South Carolina and Virginia even before Florence makes landfall by early Friday, bringing a storm surge as much as 13 feet (4 meters), the National Hurricane Center in Miami warned. Catastrophic floods could follow if the storm stalls inland, it said.Although Florence was still days from arrival, authorities took extraordinary measures to move people out of harm's way. More than 1 million residents have been ordered to evacuate from the coastline of the three states, while university campuses, schools and factories were being shuttered.The U.S. Coast Guard closed ports in Wilmington and Morehead City, North Carolina and Hampton Roads, Virginia to inbound vessels greater than 500 tons and was requiring vessels of that size to leave if they did not have permission to be in the ports.Packing maximum sustained winds of 140 miles per hour (225 km per hour), the storm ranked as a Category 4 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale and was expected to grow stronger and larger over the next few days, the NHC said."This storm is a monster," North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said. "Even if you've ridden out storms before, this one is different. Don't bet your life on riding out a monster."He cited forecasts showing Florence was likely to stall over North Carolina, "bringing days and days of rain."To hasten evacuations from coastal South Carolina, officials reversed the flow of traffic on some highways so all major roads led away from shore.Kathleen O'Neal, a resident of Ocracoke Island in North Carolina's Barrier Islands, said she, her husband and son would ride out the storm. "A lot of local people are staying," she said of the island, which is reachable only by ferry or plane.LONG-TERM POWER OUTAGES POSSIBLE-Maps of Florence's trajectory showed its center most likely to strike the southern coast of North Carolina. The last Category 4 hurricane to plow directly into North Carolina was Hazel in 1954, a devastating storm that killed 19 people and destroyed some 15,000 homes.NHC forecasts showed the effects of Florence would be widely felt, with tropical storm-force winds extending nearly 300 miles across three states. A hurricane warning was posted for most of the Carolina coast north to the Virginia border.In addition to wind-driven storm surges of seawater, Florence could dump up to 35 inches (89 cm) in some spots as it moves inland, forecasters said.Communities in Florence's path could lose electricity for weeks due to downed power lines and flooded equipment, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Brock Long said.Utilities deployed crews and gear in advance, with workers en route to the region from at least 15 states, according to trade group, the Edison Electric Institute.Crews also prepared 16 nuclear reactors in the three-state region for the storm. One power station, Duke Energy Corp's Brunswick plant, the closest to the area where landfall is forecast, faced a likely shutdown as a precaution. Shutdowns also were possible at two more plants in the path of predicted hurricane-force winds.The American Red Cross said more than 700 workers were headed to the region while shelters were set up to house those unable to flee. A hospital in Hampton, Virginia, was transferring patients to safer places.U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed declarations of emergency for North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, freeing up federal resources for storm response."We are sparing no expense. We are totally prepared," Trump said at the White House.Trump faced severe criticism for his administration's response to Hurricane Maria last year in Puerto Rico. Some 3,000 people died in the aftermath of that storm.COMMERCIAL OPERATIONS-Days before its arrival, Florence was already disrupting commercial operations.Boeing Co suspended work on Tuesday at the South Carolina plant where it assembles 787 widebody jetliners, and a Volvo automobile plant in South Carolina's evacuation zone was also closed, company officials said.Smithfield Foods Inc [SFII.UL] said it would shut down the world's largest hog-slaughtering facility in Tar Heel, North Carolina, on Thursday and Friday due to the hurricane.Residents prepared by boarding up their homes and stocking up on food, water and other essentials, stripping grocery store shelves of merchandise. Many gasoline stations were running low on fuel."I'm scared we'll get 30 inches or more of rain," said Carol Trojniar, 69, a longtime Wilmington resident and retired real estate agent who has never experienced a Category 4 hurricane. "What is flooding going to do to our home, our city?"Trojniar said she and her husband were packing up belongings and plan to stack sandbags around their single-floor home in Wilmington's eerily named Landfall neighborhood near the ocean before checking into a hotel to ride out the storm, with plenty of wine."Where else can we go? If we try to leave, we'll just get stuck in the rain," she said.(Reporting by Ernest Scheyder; Additional reporting by Anna Driver in Holden Beach, North Carolina, Gene Cherry in Raleigh, North Carolina, Liz Hampton in Houston, Susan Heavey in Washington, Bernie Woodall in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Scott DiSavino and Alden Bentley in New York, Nichola Groom and Alex Dobzinskis in Los Angeles and Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee; Writing by Nick Zieminski, Bill Trott and Steve Gorman; Editing by Bill Tarrant, Lisa Shumaker and Michael Perry)

Swedish court nixes deportation of Palestinian synagogue attacker-Appellate court says assailant cannot be returned to West Bank because anti-Semitic nature of attack could put him in danger from Israel-By TOI staff    Today-SEP 12,18

A Swedish court of appeals on Wednesday overturned a deportation order against a Palestinian man who firebombed a synagogue, saying he would be in danger from Israel because of his crime if returned to the Palestinian Authority.The ruling by the Court of Appeals for Western Sweden was on a motion filed by one of the three migrants convicted of hurling Molotov cocktails at a synagogue in Gothenburg last year in the wake of the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.In June, the Gothenburg District Court determined that the two Palestinians and one Syrian had “violate[d] an ethnic group because of its beliefs,” and sentenced them to jail terms between  one and two years for the arson attack.The court also ordered one of the Palestinian defendants, who was in Sweden on an asylum seeker visa, to be deported back to the PA after completing his two-year sentence. The other two perpetrators, who reportedly had Swedish residency permits, were not ordered deported by the court.But on Wednesday, the SVT broadcaster reported that the deportation order was overturned on appeal since the perpetrator “could be perceived as a threat to other Jews,” and that Israel “might be interested in the matter.” In his decision, the judge said that Sweden “cannot safeguard the man’s fundamental human rights if he is deported to Palestine.”A few days after US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital last December, a dozen people threw multiple burning objects at the synagogue in Gothenburg, Sweden’s second-largest city.Some 20 Jewish teens participating in a celebration briefly took shelter in a cellar during the attack, but no one was injured, and minor damage to the building was caused.The attack, which was classified as a hate crime, was caught on surveillance cameras, leading to the arrests of the Palestinians and Syrian.There are around 20,000 Jews living in Sweden, according to the Official Council of Swedish Jewish Communities.The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention says there have been between 150 and 280 anti-Semitic acts, including threats, insults and violence, each year in the past decade.JTA contributed to this report.

Rockets fired near airport in Tripoli, ISIS claims attack on oil company-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-September 12, 2018

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Rockets were fired late on Tuesday in the direction of the airport in Libya's capital, residents said, forcing flights to be diverted, less than a week after the United Nations brokered a fragile truce between rival armed groups in Tripoli.A spokesman for a faction controlling Matiga airport, the only one functioning in the capital, said there were no casualties or damage. Libyan channels reported that several people had been wounded by the rockets, one of which landed in the Mediterranean sea.Rival groups have been fighting in Tripoli for several days but clashes had been focused on the south of the city. Matiga airport lies in an eastern suburb.A Libyan Airlines flight bound for Tripoli from Alexandria, Egypt, was diverted to Misrata, the airport said on its Facebook page. Misrata lies about 190 km (120 miles) east of Tripoli.A spokesman for Misrata airport said that all flights bound for Tripoli would be diverted to Misrata.Separately, Islamic State claimed responsibility for a shooting attack on the headquarters of Libyan state oil company NOC in Tripoli, the jihadist group's news agency said on Tuesday.The attack on Monday killed two NOC staff and wounded 10, said officials, who had described the three shooters who were also killed as "Africans."It targeted the "economic interests of oppressing governments funding crusaders," a statement carried on the militants' Amaq news agency said.It was the first attack of its kind against the leadership of Libya's state oil industry.Libya has been divided into rival administrations but NOC has continued to function relatively normally across the country, which relies on oil exports for most of its income.Militants loyal to Islamic State have previously carried out attacks in Tripoli and other towns, despite having lost their stronghold in the central city of Sirte late in 2016.In May, Islamic State claimed a deadly attack on the national election commission offices in Tripoli.(Reporting by Ahmed Elumami, Hani Amara and Ulf Laessing; Writing by Ulf Laessing; Editing by Chris Reese, Toni Reinhold)

U.N. chief pushes for protection of civilians in Syria's Idlib-[Reuters]-By Michelle Nichols-YAHOONEWS-September 12, 2018

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday appealed to Russia, Iran and Turkey to "spare no effort to find solutions that protect civilians" in Syria's Idlib and said it was "absolutely essential" a full-scale battle was avoided."This would unleash a humanitarian nightmare unlike any seen in the blood-soaked Syrian conflict," he told reporters.An estimated 3 million people live in Idlib - the last major stronghold of active opposition to President Bashar al-Assad. The U.N. has described it as a "dumping ground" for people evacuated and displaced from elsewhere in Syria during the seven-year war.Assad has vowed to retake the region, backed by his Russian and Iranian allies. Syrian government and Russian warplanes began air strikes in Idlib last week in a possible prelude to a full-scale offensive. They say they are targeting terrorist groups."I understand that the present situation in Idlib is not sustainable and the presence of terrorist groups cannot be tolerated. But fighting terrorism does not absolve warring parties of their core obligations under international law," said Guterres.Senior officials from Russia, Iran and Turkey met with U.N. Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura in Geneva on Tuesday. The presidents of Turkey, Iran and Russia met in Tehran on Friday but failed to agree on a ceasefire in Idlib.Russia briefed the 15-member U.N. Security Council on Tuesday on the Tehran meeting, which was held as part of the so-called Astana process."Russia, Iran and Assad are demolishing Idlib and asking us to call it peace. But here's the reality: Astana has failed. It has failed to stop the violence or to promote a political solution," U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said.(Reporting by Michelle Nichols; editing by Diane Craft and Cynthia Osterman)

          RELEASE: 45 Cities Pledge to Conserve and Restore Forests, Citing Public Health, Water and Climate Benefits      Cache   Translate Page      

RELEASE: 45 Cities Pledge to Conserve and Restore Forests, Citing Public Health, Water and Climate Benefits

Amman, Auckland, Jakarta, Johannesburg, Mexico City, Oslo, Sacramento and more cities representing over 164 million residents join Cities4Forests initiative

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (September 12, 2018) – Floods and landslides are wreaking havoc on cities from Bangkok to Bangalore. Urban heat islands are exacerbating sweltering temperatures from Los Angeles to São Paulo. Concerns about drinking water are growing from Bogota to Johannesburg to Jakarta. Rising sea levels threaten Miami and Mumbai alike. Now, a coalition of cities has emerged to protect their residents from these threats by deploying a highly underrated resource: forests.

Today at the Global Climate Action Summit, 45 cities across six continents joined the Cities4Forests initiative, committing to conserve and restore their forests while making residents more aware of the vast benefits of trees. Cities joining include Addis Ababa, Bogotá, Kigali, Kochi, Quito, São Paulo, Toronto and Vienna, with many more across the globe and in the U.S. such as Detroit, Los Angeles, New York City, Oakland, Salt Lake City, Seattle and Washington, D.C.

“Cities have invisible footprints on faraway forests that most people aren't aware of. The commodities that we consume - timber, paper, palm oil, beef, soybeans – can be responsible for destroying forests. And the benefits that forests provide to cities are underappreciated too,” said Frances Seymour, Distinguished Senior Fellow at World Resources Institute. “The more we learn about how trees interact with the atmosphere, the more we realize how forests influence the climate on both a local and a global scale. Forests are an important source of climate resilience and stability for people, no matter where we live.”

Trees and forests are immensely valuable to cities and their residents. The Cities4Forests initiative works at three levels: inner, nearby and faraway forests. Trees within cities—the inner forests in parks, boulevards, and yards—help filter air, moderate temperatures and lower energy bills. Trees in the watersheds surrounding cities—nearby forests—buffer against flooding and landslides, lower water treatment costs, offer exercise opportunities and give residents an escape from hectic urban life. Trees in faraway forests, particularly in the tropics, sequester carbon to help combat climate change, generate rain for the world’s farm belts, provide an array of essential products and medicinal ingredients, and host the majority of the world’s land-based biodiversity.

“As the City of Trees, we in Sacramento recognize the important role forests play in promoting clean air and water, and enhancing the quality of life of all residents,” said Mayor Darrell Steinberg, of Sacramento. “From their ability to curb climate change to the miles of hiking and biking trails they provide, without forests, our city cannot truly thrive. Cities4Forests will help us, and other cities, share the best ways to prioritize, restore, and protect the trees that make our communities vibrant and healthy.” 

“As Antananarivo is hit by cyclones and tropical storms every year, I fully understand the importance of protecting and restoring trees and forests inside and nearby our city,” said Mayor Lalao Ravalomanana, of Antananarivo, Madagascar. “Green areas can reduce our risks from natural disasters, support climate action strategies and contribute to a more healthy and resilient environment.”

The 45 founding cities of Cities4Forests include cities from every continent except Antarctica, representing 164.9 million residents in their metropolitan areas (see the full list below). Participating cities share a commitment to reduce deforestation, restore forests and help manage forests both inside and outside city limits. Each city joining the Cities4Forests initiative has committed to:

  • Understand. To assess their reliance and impacts on trees and forests.
  • Engage. To raise awareness among residents about the benefits forests provide, communicate what people can do to make a positive impact and collaborate across government agencies to improve the health of trees and forests.
  • Innovate. To harness the power of forests to help achieve climate goals, secure clean and stable water supplies, reduce stormwater runoff, improve public health and provide recreation.
  • Act. To implement new tools, local policies, voluntary programs, investments and public procurement decisions to meet these goals.
  • Progress. To engage at the three Cities4Forest scales (inner, nearby, and faraway forests), participating in at least one level by 2020, two by 2022 and all three by 2025.
  • Share. To share insights, experiences, and innovations to inspire ambition and mobilize action among cities around the world.

“Conserving our forests is a top priority in Mexico City’s climate action plan,” said Tanya Müller García, Mexico City’s Secretary of Environment. “In fact, 59% of the city’s territory is conserved land that provides multiple environmental benefits – absorbing carbon emissions, protecting our water supply, regulating the city’s temperature and creating space for biodiversity. These benefits are fundamental for Mexico City’s sustainability and for our residents’ quality of life. And we recognize that forests outside of the city’s boundaries need to be protected too. Mexico City is the first local government in Latin America to launch a Forest Carbon Bond. Now with our commitment to Cities4Forests, we continue advancing even more ambitious climate goals.”

Cities4Forests is managed by World Resources Institute, Pilot Projects and REVOLVE. Cities joining the program can benefit from their technical assistance to measure tree cover canopy and prioritize where to plant trees for maximum benefit; increased capacity to apply for funding for tree planting; advice on where to look for financing to protect watersheds or restore degraded areas; help writing sustainable procurement guidelines for timber, construction materials and paper products; and much more.

“I am an enthusiastic city dweller in a capital surrounded by deep forests. I know how vital these accessible, yet quiet forests are to the health and well being of the people of Oslo,” said Norway's Minister of Climate and Environment, Ola Elvestuen, who is supporting the initiative. “Indeed, forests are incredibly valuable to cities and urban citizens for contemplation, exercise, by providing improved air quality and cleaner drinking water. Still, forests further away – particularly in the tropics – are even more important. They support rainfall for food production and food security worldwide and they combat climate change by storing massive amounts of carbon. Halting and reversing tropical deforestation is critical to retain these benefits, and only with cities and their citizens on board can we succeed.”

City officials will also benefit from a peer-to-peer exchange network to learn from other cities and highlight success cases, and a citizen engagement and communications package.

Hurricane Florence

  • Hurricane Florence has triggered more than 1,000 flight cancellations and the closing of roughly a dozen airports in the Carolinas and Virginia.

  • American, Delta, United, and Southwest have also waived their in-cabin pet fees.
  • Nearly all major US carriers operating to areas affected by the storm have offered fee waivers for passengers.

Hurricane Florence has triggered more than 1,000 flight cancellations and the closing of nearly a dozen airports in North Carolina and South Carolina.

American Airlines, the carrier with the largest operation in the Carolinas, has announced the cancellation of more than 800 flights through Sunday.

The Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines said it had canceled 150 flights ahead of the storm.

Southwest announced that it had canceled all flights into and out of Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham in North Carolina as well as Richmond and Norfolk in Virginia from Thursday until Saturday morning.

Airports along the eastern seaboard are also expected to shut down ahead of the storm. According to American, airports in the North Carolina cities of Greenville, Jacksonville, New Bern, and Wilmington will be closed until Saturday. Raleigh-Durham is expected to experience "scattered cancellations" through Friday, while operations at Charlotte Douglas International were not affected as of Wednesday evening.

In South Carolina, airports in Myrtle Beach, Columbia, and Florence are closed through Saturday. Charleston's airport is expected to be closed through Friday.

In Virginia, the airport serving Hampton and Newport News is expected to be closed through Friday.

Delta announced on Monday that it was preemptively capping prices for some coastal and inland airports from Savannah, Georgia, north to Richmond, Virginia.

On Tuesday, JetBlue announced that it too would cap fares on seats to and from select areas affected by the hurricane.

"To assist the affected communities, JetBlue has capped fares on new bookings at $149 for remaining seats to/from Savannah, Charleston, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, and Richmond through Sunday, September 16," a representative for the New York-based carrier told Business Insider in an email.

American and United announced last-minute reduced-price fares for those needing to evacuate by air.

Delta has made available an additional 1,200 seats on routes operating in the path of the hurricane via additional flights and the use of larger aircraft.

In addition, almost all major airlines operating in the region including American, Delta, United, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit, and Frontier have issued fee waivers for ticket holders who need to change their reservations.

American, Delta, and United have also waived baggage and pet-in-cabin fees for evacuees. Southwest also waived its pet fees for some airports in the region.

On Thursday, Hurricane Florence weakened slightly to a Category 2 hurricane, but it still boasts sustained winds of 105 mph with gusts reaching even higher speeds. In addition, the storm is expected to cause a storm surge of 9 to 13 feet along North Carolina's Outer Banks.
