http://news.yahoo.com/power-back-many-mid-atlantic-residents-085725624.html

7/5/12

BALTIMORE (AP) — More Mid-Atlantic residents were a little more comfortable Thursday as power companies hooked them back up with lights and air conditioning over the Fourth of July holiday.

The number without power was diminishing Thursday though not quickly enough for those still in the sweltering dark. More than 500,000 customers were still out with many of the outages — nearly 230,000 — in West Virginia.

Pepco got some of the harshest criticism. As of Thursday morning, the utility said it had restored power to more than 90 percent of its customers in the nation's capital and Maryland suburbs.

More than 2 million people at one point lost power from wicked storms that converged on Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington, D.C., Indiana, Ohio and New Jersey. They packed winds topping 70 mph in some places, uprooting trees and damaging homes.

Officials blamed the storms for 26 deaths.

Meanwhile, a new round of summer storms was making its way across Michigan and Ohio, knocking down trees and power lines. Wind gusts above 60 mph were reported as storms crossed Michigan's Lower Peninsula, the National Weather Service said. In Ohio, downed power lines prompted the closure of a section of Interstate 670 that links downtown Columbus with the city's main airport. The highway reopened by the Thursday morning rush hour.

Midwest can't get any relief from oppressive heat

7/6/12

DETROIT (AP) — When the air conditioner stopped in Ashley Jackson's Southfield, Mich., home, so too did normal conversations and nightly rest.

"Inside the house it was 91 degrees. ... I wasn't talking to anybody. Nobody was talking to anybody," said Jackson, 23, who works as a short-order cook in Detroit. "We mostly slept, but it was hard to sleep because of the heat. I probably got about four hours of sleep each night."

St. Louis, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Chicago and several other Midwest cities already have broken heat records this week or are on the verge of doing so. And with even low temperatures setting record highs, some residents have no means of relief, day or night.

The National Weather Service said the record-breaking heat that has baked the nation's midsection for several days was slowly moving into the mid-Atlantic states and Northeast. Excessive-heat warnings remained in place Friday for all of Iowa, Indiana and Illinois as well as much of Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Kentucky.

St. Louis hit a record high of 105 on Wednesday and a record low of 83. In Wisconsin, the coolest Milwaukee and Madison got was 81 in the early morning, beating previous low records by 2 and 4 degrees respectively. Temperatures didn't fall below 79 in Chicago, 78 in Grand Rapids, Mich., and 75 in Indianapolis.

Hundreds of thousands without power brace for more blistering heat
By the CNN Wire Staff
 
updated 9:32 AM EDT, Fri July 6, 2012

(CNN) -- Another day of blistering heat, and for hundreds of thousands, no power.
 
That's the expectation Friday, when thermometers once again teeter above the 100-degree mark, from St. Louis to Baltimore and many communities in between.
 
More than 549,000 customers had no power Thursday night in 11 states and the District of Columbia, officials said.
 
Triple-digit strategies for staying healthy
 
The situation is particularly dire in places such as Fayette County, West Virginia, where about two-thirds of its 46,000 residents had no electricity, according to Theresa White, emergency management director.
 
Hundreds of thousands in West Virginia and other states will mark a week without power Friday after destructive storms barreled east from Indiana toward New Jersey. Others had their lights on, only to have them knocked out by more recent storms also fueled in part by the extreme heat.

Asom flood death toll touches 100


GUWAHATI The death toll in the Asom floods on Thursday rose to 100 even as the waters started to recede in most of the 27 affected districts except Dhemaji.
 
However, the rising water level of the Jiadhal river submerged several villages in the morning. The surging waters have also affected parts of National Highway 52 in the district.
 
“The waters of Brahmaputra river that flooded the district along with other parts of the state since June 22 have started to recede and people have begun returning to their homes from relief camps,” Dhemaji Deputy Commissioner MS Manivannan said.
 
“However, the water of Jiadhal has inundated some villages of the district on Thursday. People there have been shifted to higher places,” he said, adding that the administration was extending all possible help to the flood victims.
 
Meanwhile, 16 people died in a landslide while another 16 are reported missing from various districts across the state.
 
With 31 deaths, Barpeta district recorded the highest number of human casualties due to floods till Thursday. The State Disaster Management Authority said conditions were improving in almost all the 27 districts except Dhemaji.

Back in 2006, I remember there were news reports like this, however, it only hit like a few states and that was it(ie-California). IOW, it's much different now.

http://www.weather.com/news/weather-forecast/record-heat-triple-digits

7/7/12

We're now approaching a two-week spell of record-smashing heat which first built in the Rockies and High Plains, then spread into the rest of the nation's heartland, then surged into the Southeast and parts of the Mid-Atlantic States. 

The number of record highs tied or broken across the nation is staggering.  Below are the latest tallies over the past 30 days from NOAA's National Climatic Data Center:

How significant is this heat, in historical context? 

We've had a potential new state record for South Carolina (113 at the Univ. of S.C. in Columbia and in Johnston) and a near-miss of the state record for Tennessee (Lewisburg reached 112 on July 2).

Atlanta, Ga. has reached the "century mark" 4 times since June 29.  It had been just under 5 years since they had last hit 100 degrees, and hadn't done so in the month of June since 1954!

Friday, St. Louis tied July 1936 for the second longest streak of 100-plus degree days on record, with its 9th straight day.  While the record of 13 straight days will not be eclipsed, the mere fact we're in the territory of the "Dust Bowl" speaks magnitudes! 

Chicago tied a record triple-digit streak of 3 days from Aug. 1947 and Jul. 1911 Friday.  Parts of Chicagoland were as hot as 105 degrees Thursday!

The Badger State also seared in heat not seen in decades Thursday.  With a high of 104, Madison, Wisc. had its hottest day since July 10, 1976.  Only a pair of "Dust Bowl" days (Jul. 13 & 14, 1936) were hotter there.  Highs topped out at 106 degrees in Kenosha, Wautoma, and Middleton Thursday.

The triple-digit heat just rolls on into the weekend in the Central Plains, Ohio Valley, and Mid-Atlantic States.

But it's not just triple-digit heat, in some locations all-time record highs may be threatened Saturday, including...

- Washington, D.C. (106 most recently on Jul. 20, 1930)

- Pittsburgh (103 most recently on Jul. 16, 1988)

- Louisville (107 most recently on Jul. 14, 1936)

Only one other day since the "Dust Bowl" has Washington, D.C. seen a high of at least 105 degrees (Aug. 17, 1997).  Triple-digit heat may spread as far north as New York City, as well. 

The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh noted that forecast temperatures a few thousand feet above the ground for Saturday were at levels never seen before at that location.  The last 100-degree high in the "Steel City" was almost 17 years ago (July 15, 1995).

Saturday could also see temperatures not seen since the "Dust Bowl" in Cincinnati.  Only July days in 1936, 1934, or 1901 have seen highs reach 105 degrees in the "Queen City". 

Sunday may still feature some lingering heat from the Mid-Atlantic States to Georgia, and some muted heat in the Plains and Ohio Valley.  With that said, keep the faith.  Significant heat relief is on the way to kick off the new work week!

Scores killed in Russia flooding
 

By the CNN Wire Staff
 
updated 12:14 PM EDT, Sat July 7, 2012

Moscow (CNN) -- At least 103 people have died as floodwaters surge through southern Russia's Krasnodar region, Russia's Interior Ministry said Saturday.
 
Of those killed, 92 are in the Krymsk district, nine in Gelendzhik district and two in the Black Sea port of Novorossiisk, the ministry said.
 
The flash floods follow heavy rains in the area since Friday.
 
The Krymsk district is a mostly rural area with many one-storey homes, Russia's state news agency Itar-Tass reported.
 
Devestating India floods leave 95 dead, millions homeless
 
Flood waters rose 7 meters (23 feet) overnight in Krymsk, the news agency said, flooding homes while most people were still asleep. Others were rescued by police after seeking refuge on roofs and in trees, it said.
 
The death toll has climbed steadily through the day as the waters have gradually subsided, allowing police to find more bodies in flooded buildings in Krymsk.
 
Television footage from the Krasnodar region showed scenes of flooded streets, stranded vehicles and people wading through torrents of knee-deep muddy water outside homes.
 
The state-run Ria Novosti news agency said dozens of passenger trains have been diverted in the region as the water level remains 19 inches above the tracks.
 
Krasnodar also suffered deadly flooding in October 2010, when torrential rains in mountainous areas caused rivers to overflow, flooding villages nearby.

Death toll hits 150 from floods in southern Russia


The death toll rose to at least 150 on Sunday from severe flooding in the Black Sea region of southern Russia that turned streets into rivers, swept away bridges and inundated thousands of homes as many residents were sleeping.

President Vladimir Putin flew to the region and ordered investigators to determine whether more could have been done to prevent the deaths.

Torrential rains dropped up to a foot of water in less than 24 hours, which the state meteorological service said was five times the monthly average.

The water rushed into the hard-hit town of Krymsk with such speed and volume early Saturday that residents said they suspected that water had been released from a reservoir in the mountains above. Local officials denied this, saying it was not technically possible to open the sluices.

Federal investigators, however, acknowledged Sunday that water had been released from the reservoir, but they insisted it did not cause the flooding and the dam had not been breached.

US record heatwave leaves dozens dead

At least 42 people have died in a heatwave that has brought soaring temperatures to a dozen US states from the Midwest to the East Coast.

Crops shrivelled and roads and railway lines buckled in the heat.

Hundreds of records fell across the affected area on Friday and Saturday, but the heat was expected to ease slightly on Sunday.

Severe storms are expected to follow. Many homes in the region are still without power after storms a week ago.

Media reports say many of the deaths were of elderly people stuck in homes without air conditioning because of the outages.

Ten deaths in Chicago were blamed on the heat, and at least 10 each in the eastern states of Virginia and Maryland.

Three each died in Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and two in Tennessee.

A four-month-old girl died after being left in a car for "an extended period" outside her home in Greenfield, Indiana.

On Saturday temperatures reached 105F (41C) in Washington DC - just short of the hottest ever recorded in the city - and 107F (46C) in St Louis, Missouri, which also extended its record for consecutive days over 100F to 10.

"It's hotter than hell," tourist John Ghio, visiting the White House, told Reuters news agency.

"Too hot," said Chinese tourist Xiao Duan, 30, who was also visiting Washington.

"My father says it's like we're being burned by flames."


High temperatures have also hit parts of Canada, with temperatures on Friday breaking 11 daily records in Ontario.

Chaos in skies over Britain: forecasters describe horrific summer as ‘the worst since records began’

http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/331299/It-will-rain-til-September

7/7/12


BRITAIN is facing its “worst ever” summer with cold wet weather ruining family holidays and blighting the Olympics, forecasters warned last night.

August is set to be a washout following a miserable July and the wettest June since records began – meaning summer is effectively over.

Gloomy forecasts suggest dire weather will continue as officials last night put Britain on flood alert after torrential downpours yesterday wreaked havoc.

As the Environment Agency warned of a “potential danger to life” with rivers swelling to breaking point in the Midlands, Yorkshire and Wales, Government forecasters were on standby to brief the Cabinet if severe floods strike.

The agency last night issued 51 flood warnings – meaning flooding is expected – and 135 alerts. Monsoon-like downpours hit 85,000 music fans at the T In The Park festival in Kinross, Scotland, and 28,000 Formula 1 spectators camping for the British Grand Prix weekend at Silverstone. Race meetings today in Nottingham and Carlisle were cancelled while play was delayed on all courts at Wimbledon – other than Centre Court.

As noted in the Associated Press story, there had been some flashes of lightning and rumbles of thunder in the area one inning prior. At that time fans were warned of storms in the area, but the weather seemed to have settled down by the time that one bolt crashed and crackled down out of nowhere.

Northeast India floods kill 121, displace 6 million

7/7/12

The death toll from heavy monsoon rains which have caused massive flooding in India's northeast has risen to more than 120, with six million forced to flee their homes, officials said Saturday.

The weather office forecast that more rains during the next 24 hours would lash the region, which is suffering from its worst flooding in recent years.

Assam state has been hardest hit by the annual rains with the mighty Brahmaputra river overflowing its banks, while flooding has also struck the nearby states of Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Meghalaya.

"So far a total of 121 people have died in separate incidents in which 105 were drowned while trying to escape the gushing waters and 16 more were killed in landslides caused by heavy rains," an Assam government statement said.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/first-half-hottest-ever-record-214906847.html

7/9/12

In what should come as no surprise to many people living in the United States in the last month or so, the first half of 2012 was officially the hottest ever recorded.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the period from January through June was "the warmest first half of any year on record for the contiguous United States."

The average temperature was 52.9 degrees Fahrenheit, or 4.5 degrees above average, the NOAA said on Monday. Twenty-eight states east of the Rockies set temperature records for the six-month period. The 12 months ending June 30 was the warmest 12-month period of any on record, according to the NOAA.

Record-breaking temperatures blistered most of the United States in June, with more than 170 all-time temperature records broken or tied during the month. On June 28 in Norton, Kansas, for instance, the temperature reached 118 degrees, an all-time high. On June 26, Red Willow, Nebraska, set a temperature record of 115 degrees, eclipsing the 114-degree mark set in 1932.

The first six months of the year were also drier than most, with precipitation totals 1.62 inches below average. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, more than half of the country (56 percent) experienced drought conditions--the largest percentage in the 12-year history of the service.

The NOAA report comes on the heels of a heat wave that's been blamed for at least 30 deaths and shattered more than 3,000 temperature records in July alone.

Deu 11:14  That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
Deu 11:15  And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.

Poland shocked by tornadoes, one dead

(Reuters) - A freak wave of tornadoes ripped through northern Poland on Sunday, wrecking houses and swathes of forest and leaving one person dead and another 10 injured.

Tornadoes are not unknown in the European Union's largest eastern country but the scope and power of Sunday's twisters was unusual and comes in a summer already marked by flash floods, hailstorms and gales.

Some 1,200 rescuers were working to remove fallen trees, unblock roads and restore utilities in the hardest hit Baltic region of Pomerania.

Trees were uprooted, buildings damaged and power lines downed, while some 550 hectares of woodlands in the Tuchola Forest area were flattened.

"I saw a black column coming our way," an injured inhabitant of the Wycinki village, whose farm was destroyed by the tornado told state television. "It carried everything away with it ... birds, debris, sucked up water from the lake."

A caravan with a family of three inside was seen flying through the air in the village of Stara Rzeka and breaking into pieces upon landing, but its occupants suffered no serious injuries, news channel TVN24 reported.

7/14/12



There were a lot of tired people in the Tri-Cities on Saturday after an early morning electrical storm rattled homes and flashed bright lights through windows.

The system that led to a severe thunderstorm warning from the National Weather Service also cooled down the Mid-Columbia after a string of 100-plus degree days.

The light show and downpour didn't appear to cause any significant damage, with police and fire officials surprised at how few calls were received.

However, it might not be over, with the forecast calling for a slight chance of thunderstorms through the rest of the week as the temperatures heat up again.

Those storms continue to bring the threat of lightning sparking wildfires.

Today's thermometer should top out around 87 degrees before moving into breezy conditions for the evening, said Rob Brooks, a hydrometeorological technician with the National Weather Service in Pendleton.

The high Saturday was 91 at the Tri-Cities Airport in Pasco with the overnight low expected to drop to 65, both fairly average temperatures for mid-July, Brooks told the Herald.

There was another one in Houston last night I think - at a soccer game, killed one, and injured another. Yes, I know lightnings are common, but in these 2 cases it was rather unusual.

If you haven't noticed, it's summer. And it's scorching hot.

Excessive heat warnings or advisories have been issued for at least 15 states as another heat wave continues to smother the Midwest, mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

According to the National Weather Service, temperatures will be 10-15 degrees above normal from Chicago to Boston, with dangerous heat index values exceeding 100 degrees through at least Wednesday.

"Breath-stealing heat" in Philadelphia will make it feel well over 100 degrees, the Philadelphia Inquirer said. A Bermuda High will push temperatures in the City of Brotherly Love to 99 degrees.

In Chicago, highs could reach 100 degrees with a heat index of 110 degrees, the weather service said. (If it reaches 101, it would break the 100-degree mark set in 1942.)

In Ann Arbor, Mich., the high temperature is expected to range anywhere from 98 to 105 degrees; in Detroit, where the forecast high is 102, six schools were closed on Tuesday due to lack of air conditioning.

In Washington, D.C., temperatures could reach 100 degrees for the sixth time this year, and a heat index of 105 is expected on Wednesday. (Hopefully, the intense heat won't melt the tarmac at Reagan National this time.)

In New Jersey, which has already seen 16 days of temperatures of higher than 90 degrees this summer—the heat index will hit 101.

There is, however, some relief on the way. Tuesday "will be the peak of the hot temperatures in the Great Lakes and Northeast," according to the Weather Channel. "The heat and humidity will continue into Wednesday along the Northeast I-95 corridor from New York to Washington."

The first half of 2012 was officially the hottest ever recorded, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The average temperature was 52.9 degrees Fahrenheit, or 4.5 degrees above average, the NOAA said on Monday. Twenty-eight states east of the Rockies set temperature records for the six-month period. The 12-month period ending June 30 was the warmest 12-month period of any on record, according to the NOAA.

Record-breaking temperatures blistered most of the United States in June, with more than 170 all-time temperature records broken or tied during the month.

Heat is the No. 1 weather-related killer in the United States, claiming more lives each year than floods, lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes combined, according to the weather service. A heat wave that began late last month and stretched into July was blamed for at least 30 deaths.

Early in the year, the NY Giants(aka Nephelim) won the Super Bowl, with #44 scoring the winning TD late in the game(albeit with his back turned toward the endzone).

A month ago, the Miami HEAT wins the NBA Finals. And now we're seeing record heat temperatures?

Beijing chaos after record floods in Chinese capital

The heaviest rainfall to hit China's capital Beijing in 60 years has left 37 people dead and stranded thousands at the main airport.

The deluge struck on Saturday afternoon and continued into the night, flooding major roads, state media said.

Roof collapses, lightning strikes and electrocution from downed power lines were among the causes of the deaths.

More than 500 flights were cancelled at the main airport, the Beijing News reported.

50,000 flee as record rain in Japan kills 17

7/12/12

TOKYO — At least 17 people died, 20 were missing and 50,000 were ordered to evacuate as the heaviest rainfall on record pounded the southwestern Japanese island of Kyushu, officials and reports said Thursday.

Emergency workers in Kumamoto prefecture responded to multiple reports of mudslides swallowing houses and people being trapped, with access roads blocked by mud or gushing water, officials said.

Troops have been deployed with nearly 100 millimetres (four inches) of rain falling in an hour in some areas.

"Particularly in Kumamoto and Oita prefectures, we are seeing the heaviest rain that (the region) has ever experienced," the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Severe Storms, Derecho Possible in Northeast Tomorrow

7/25/12

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-07-25/severe-storms-derecho-possible-in-northeast-tomorrow.html

A derecho, the kind of storm that knocked out power to millions in Washington last month, may accompany bad weather forecast for New York City and the rest of the Northeast tomorrow, the U.S. Storm Prediction Center said.

There’s a moderate chance the rare windstorm will develop in an area from Indiana to Massachusetts, the center said on its website. The region is also at risk for severe thunderstorms, hail and possible tornadoes after noon, according to John Hart, a meteorologist at the agency’s Norman, Oklahoma, offices.

“The environment is going to be favorable for considerably severe weather right across the area even if we don’t get a derecho,” Hart said by telephone.

Last month, a derecho knocked out power to at least 4.3 million people from New Jersey to North Carolina as it unleashed winds of as much as 91 miles (146 kilometers) per hour, as powerful as a Category 1 hurricane. Twenty-four deaths were linked to the storm and its aftermath, according to the Associated Press.

A derecho is defined as an event that has wind gusts of at least 58 mph and leaves a swath of damage for 240 miles, according to the storm center’s website.

A storm that swept from Chicago to Kentucky yesterday also seems to have met the definition of a derecho, Hart said. Yesterday’s storm wasn’t as intense as the one that struck the mid-Atlantic, including Washington, on June 29, he said.

Predictions Difficult

Hart said derechos are hard to predict because they require that a number of atmospheric elements come together.

“There is no way to have high confidence in such a forecast,” Hart said. “We decided the risk of that scenario happening was high enough that we would highlight it.”

The area from western Ohio to southern New England will probably be in the path of severe storms tomorrow afternoon, Hart said. New York, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Cincinnati all have a 45 percent chance of severe thunderstorms, high winds and hail.

Severe storms between the large airline hub cities of Chicago, New York and Atlanta often disrupt air travel throughout the U.S. Such fast-moving storms, which may include tornadoes, accounted for about $8.8 billion in insured losses in the U.S. in the first six months of 2012, according to the Insurance Information Institute in New York.

Storms knock out power to tens of thousands from Plains to Northeast
 

By Khara Lewin, CNN
 
updated 4:51 AM EDT, Fri July 27, 2012

(CNN) -- Hundreds of thousands lost power due to a potent storm system that extended eastward from the Plains toward the Northeast on Thursday, bringing with it high winds and destructive lightning.
 
Severe thunderstorm watches were in effect at one point Thursday evening for a continuous stretch from Oklahoma through New Jersey. The danger could lurk for several hours longer, with the National Weather Service issuing such warnings in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Kentucky, Virginia, Arkansas and other points in between.
 
Well before then, the system had already packed a punch.
 
In Pennsylvania, a tree crushed a woman in her car as she sought shelter at a campsite, killing her, said Glenn Dunn, the emergency management coordinator for Potter County.
 
A 61-year-old man in Brooklyn, New York, died after lightning struck a church sending a scaffold crashing down on him, authorities said.
 
Witnesses reported trees in the region buckling under the impact.
 
"The trees were bending sideways, (and) the sky just went really dark and green," said Mark Ventrini, a photographer, of the scene around 7:30 p.m. as he headed toward Belmar, New Jersey. "Some of the storms were pretty intense."
 
The weather service had received reports of possible tornadoes touching down in Elmira, New York, and Brookville, Pennsylvania.
 
Emergency managers in Broome County, New York, reported people trapped inside a home because of downed trees in the town of Vestal.
 
Strong storms also caused damage in Binghamton, New York, but the weather service said no injuries or fatalities have been reported.
 
The residual and more widespread damage came in the form of extensive power outages. More than 100,000 First Energy customers in Pennsylvania, for instance, didn't have electricity as of 10 p.m. ET, with other utilities like PECO and PPL reporting tens of thousands of others similarly in the dark.
 
An hour earlier, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a press release stating there were nearly 95,000 customers without power in that state, mostly NYSEG and Central Hudson customers.
 
Cuomo also declared a state of emergency for hard-hit Chemung County in the southwestern part of the state.
 
Many more people took in the impressive lightning storms, with daunting bolts preceding booming claps of thunder in small towns and big cities.
 
"The brunt of the storm itself was intense but short -- there was very strong rain and wind for about 15 minutes, at which point the rain cleared and the lightning show began," said Matthew Burke, a CNN iReporter who photographed lightning sprawling across the New York City skyline.
 
Several states away, tens of thousands also were in the dark, though power was being restored at a fairly fast rate. AEP Ohio, for instance, reported just over 51,000 customers lacking electricity at 6:15 p.m., yet more than 20,000 of those had the lights back on by 10 p.m.

North Korean floods kill 88


From: AFP
July 28, 2012 11:17PM

FLOODING across impoverished North Korea this month has killed 88 people, left tens of thousands homeless and devastated swathes of farmland.

A week of floods "caused by typhoon and downpour ... claimed big human and material losses", Pyongyang's official news agency said. The new death toll was a dramatic increase from the figure of eight reported Wednesday.

A total of 134 people were injured and almost 63,000 people were left homeless by the floods, which started on July 18, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported, with thousands of houses damaged or destroyed.

The biggest loss of human life was in two counties of South Pyongan province, which were hit by torrential rains on Monday and Tuesday, it said.

More than 30,000 hectares of land for growing crops was "washed away and buried" or "submerged", KCNA said, a potential blow for a state that is beset by persistent severe food shortages.

With rugged terrain and outmoded agricultural practices, the country faces serious difficulties in feeding its 24 million people. Hundreds of thousands died during a famine in the mid to late-1990s.

UN agencies, after a visit to the North, estimated last November that three million people would need food aid in 2012.

Some 300 public buildings and 60 factories were damaged in the floods, as well as large stretches of road, KCNA said.

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/07/30/13035750-tornado-in-colorado-mountains-is-2nd-highest-on-record

A twister that touched down in Colorado's high-country on Saturday is estimated to be the second-highest tornado ever recorded in the U.S. by the National Weather Service.

There were four different reported sightings of the high-altitude hit the northeast side of Mount Evans — a prominent mountain located about 60 miles west of Denver. The National Weather Service estimates the tornado's touched down at about  11,900 feet in elevation.
 
Bob Glancy, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Boulder, Colo., told NBC News that this tornado above the treeline is "not unheard of," but "just unusual." Most tornadoes in high terrain are weak, he said.

For the last two decades, Colorado has averaged 50 tornadoes a year. But Glancy said the "vast majority" occur on the plains east of Interstate 25.

http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/article.aspx?subjectid=100&articleid=20120801_100_0_rmrhtw219828

Tulsa's temperatures are rising and are showing no signs of letting up yet.
 
The National Weather Service forecasts highs near 113 degrees this afternoon; 109 on Thursday; 107 on Friday; and 102 on Saturday for Tulsa.

Highs are expected to finally sink to the 90s again by Sunday, when a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms is forecast for Tulsa.

Tulsa reached its hottest temperature of the calendar year on Tuesday, 112 degrees. Tulsa finished the month of July with 1.38 inches of rain, almost 2 inches below normal for the month.

Excessive heat warning

The weather service extended its heat warning for northeast Oklahoma until 7 p.m. Friday.

Counties under the warning are: Adair, Cherokee, Craig, Creek, Delaware, Haskell, Mayes, McIntosh, Muskogee, Nowata, Okfuskgee, Okmulgee, Osage, Ottawa, Pawnee, Pittsburg, Rogers, Sequoyah, Tulsa, Wagoner and Washington.

According to the weather service, these areas are expected to have high temperatures in the 105- to 115-degree range each afternoon, with overnight lows in the mid- to upper 70s. More urbanized areas in Tulsa County are expected to have overnight lows in the mid- to upper 80s.

Burn bans still in effect

County commissioners extended Tulsa County's burn ban through next week.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/technology-blog/oklahoma-hot-street-lamps-melting-203656312.html

8/2/12

It's hard to not be concerned with global warming when its effects are right in front of your eyes. Sure, it's one thing when the ocean begins to reclaim islands, but when you can see the effects in your home town, well, that's another story altogether. Case in point: KFOR TV in Stillwater, Oklahoma is reporting that temperatures are so high that the street lamps have begun melting.
 
To be sure, Stillwater is suffering from one heck of a heatwave. It's expected to reach 115 there today, 108 on Friday, and 109 on Saturday. And warmer temperatures are nothing new: July represented the 23rd month out of the last 28 that came in warmer than average.
 
It's possible the heat itself isn't responsible for the event — it's being reported on Facebook that a nearby dumpster fire may have been the cause of the melting plastic light housings. Still, that dumpster fire was caused and aggravated by the record heat and dryness. And if dangerous, spontaneous fires aren't reason enough to go green, we don't know what is.

8/2/12

58 inches of rain in Taiwan and counting

TAIPEI, Taiwan — A tropical storm inched across northern Taiwan on Thursday after dumping as much as five feet of rain that has flooded farmland, swollen rivers and paralyzed life on much of the densely populated island of 23 million people.
 
Saola weakened from a typhoon to a tropical storm by late afternoon, but its slow movement and continuing heavy rains raised the prospect of devastating flooding in areas that have absorbed more than 58 inches of rain since Tuesday.
 
It has caused five deaths and left two people missing in Taiwan after killing 26 people in the Philippines.
 
During the day in the northeastern county of Ilan, rescuers used rubber boats and amphibious vehicles to help hundreds escape flooded homes.
 
Dozens of flights were canceled at Taipei’s main international airport, where heavy winds destroyed two jetways, and rail transport throughout the island was disrupted. All seven major reservoirs in Taiwan released large quantities of water to prevent flooding.
 
By nighttime, Saola was centered just off northern Taiwan, moving northwest toward China at 10 mph. It had sustained winds of 54 mph, gusting to 71 mph.
 
Offices and businesses were closed throughout northern Taiwan. In Taipei, normally busy streets were deserted except for cleanup crews clearing off fallen trees and branches. The Defense Ministry mobilized 48,000 soldiers to help mitigate the storm’s impact.
 
Television footage showed acre upon acre of flooded farmland in low-lying coastal areas, punctuated by scenes of raging rivers and roads blocked by mudslides in the island’s mountainous center.
 
The typhoon left at least 26 people dead in the Philippines and forced 180,000 to flee their homes. Coast guard and other disaster-response groups rescued 125 people from stricken sea vessels and flooded villages, according to Benito Ramos, who heads the government’s National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.
 
Saola was forecast to hit China’s east coast Friday morning south of Typhoon Damrey, which made landfall Thursday night in Jiangsu province. It had sustained wind of 75 mph and was moving northwest at 19 mph and was expected to weaken steadily.
