Flooding threatens millions from New Mexico to Michigan as record heat continues in South

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Eleven states are under flood and flash flood alerts Tuesday morning. A cold front combined with tropical moisture from the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico will bring rounds of heavy rain and the threat of flash flooding from New Mexico to Michigan Tuesday and Wednesday.There has already been flash flooding in southeastern New Mexico near Carlsbad, where some people got stuck in their vehicles in the flood waters and had to be rescued.Just south of Duluth, Minnesota, roads have been under water with some rivers nearing record flood stage due to numerous rounds of heavy rain in the last 24 hours. In the next 48 hours, some areas could see more than 4 inches of additional rain, as flooding and flash flooding remains in the forecast.Meanwhile, numerous record highs were broken Monday from the Deep South all the way to the Midwest. Among the records, Indianapolis reached 92 degrees, Cincinnati hit 94, Atlanta reached 96 and Macon, Georgia, hit 100 — while in Alabama, Birmingham and Montgomery both reached 98.More record heat is expected Tuesday and with humidity the temperature will feel like 100 degrees or even more in some areas. The record heat will move to the East Coast on Wednesday, with actual temperatures into the mid to upper 90s for the Mid-Atlantic states, and temperatures close to 90 degrees possible in New York City and Philadelphia.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Lidar observations of polar mesospheric clouds at Rothera, Antarctica (67.5 degrees S, 68.0 degrees W)

first_imgPolar mesospheric clouds (PMC) were observed by an Fe Boltzmann temperature lidar at Rothera (67.5degreesS, 68.0degreesW), Antarctica in the austral summer of 2002-2003.The Rothera PMC are much weaker, less frequent, and not as high as the PMC observed at the South Pole. The mean PMC altitude is 83.74 +/- 0.25 km, which is approximately 1.3 km lower than the South Pole clouds. A comparison of numerous cloud observations indicates that southern hemisphere PMC are about 1 km higher than northern clouds at similar latitudes. Lidar measurements also show that the mesopause region temperatures at Rothera in late January are warmer than at the South Pole, while the Fe layer at Rothera has higher density and a lower peak altitude compared to the summertime Fe layer at the South Pole. These Fe density and temperature observations are qualitatively consistent with the PMC observations.last_img read more

Volunteers Beautify O.C. Beaches in Cleanup

first_imgA Clean Ocean Action Beach Sweep in Ocean City is scheduled for Oct. 26. By Maddy VitaleA giant, rusted screw, a cover for a workout weight, large hunks of Styrofoam and plenty of plastic bottles filled the trash bags of the Figueroa and Zbikowski families, who joined forces and ventured onto the beach Saturday morning for Clean Ocean Action’s Beach Sweep in Ocean City.“Last year we found a piece of a whale’s jaw,” said Alexander Figueroa, 14, of Pine Hill, N.J. “We also found a teddy bear. It was so heavy because it had been in the water.”This year was a bit less exciting, they admitted, but it did yield the removal of a lot of plastic off the beaches and make way for visitors to enjoy pristine beaches and marine life to be safer from the threat of choking on plastic bags or other garbage.Angela Zbikowski brought her daughters, Nicola, 7, and Krista, 15, along for the cleanup.“We are here for vacation every year and we love keeping the beaches clean,” she said.Nicola said it made her happy to clean the beaches. “We love doing it for the community,” she said.Beach Cleanup Coordinator Charlotte Moyer speaks with Vincent and Patti Colucci, of Bergen County, before they head out to clean the beaches.More than 300 participants lined up throughout the morning into the early afternoon to get their rubber gloves and trash bags at the Ocean City Music Pier.Charlotte Moyer, supervisor for Ocean City Public Works and one of the coordinators of the event, said despite the winds, the beach sweep was going very well.“There is a lot of wind, but people are still out there picking up litter,” Moyer said as she handed volunteers a sign-in sheet. “It is a great way to start the season off. We really appreciate everything people do.”The cleanup is designed to not only beautify the beaches, but also make it safer for marine life and protect the coastal environment.Volunteers took to the sands in search of litter and debris during the 34rd annual Spring Beach Sweep hosted by Clean Ocean Action.Among the volunteers were the Coluccis from Bergen County. They visit Ocean City often to see friends.“It is a good getaway,” said Patti Colucci. “We’ve come down to do the cleanups a couple of times because it is just a good thing to do. No one wants trash on the beaches. They are too beautiful.”Dana McFarland, of Mullica Hill, and her daughters, Eily, 11, (left) and Amelia, 8, fill garbage bags with plastic bottles, wrappers and cans during the beach cleanup.Dana McFarland, of Mullica Hill, N.J., brought her daughters, Amelia, 8, and Eily, 11, to the cleanup.“We found a lot of litter under the Boardwalk,” Dana McFarland said. “We vacation here and want the beaches to be clean. My husband is a surfer. The ocean is our happy place.”For Eily, who was taught by her parents about what plastics and other debris can do to marine life, the importance of ridding the ocean and beaches of harmful litter is vital.“Plastic bags look like jelly fish and an animal could swallow it and die,” Eily said. “That is why we have to pick them up.”Nickolas Figueroa, 10, and his brother, Alexander, 14, display some of their finds, including a block of Styrofoam and a weight cover.last_img read more

Tedeschi Trucks Band Dusts Off Pair Of Sly & The Family Stone Tunes In The Cap Finale [Pro-Shot]

first_imgTedeschi Trucks Band concluded their two-night run at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on Wednesday night. Following Tuesday’s Evening With Tedeschi Trucks Band, the twelve-piece powerhouse welcomed Amy Helm to open up the night before taking off on a super-charged extended set. Thoroughly loose from the night before, Tedeschi Trucks Band opened the show with one of their new originals, “Shame”, which was introduced in the summer of 2017. Next, they moved into NOLA-inspired, horn-heavy “Don’t Know What It Means” from 2016’s Let Me Get By. The transitional “Swamp Raga”, a bonus track from The Derek Trucks Band‘s 2009 Already Free album, followed before moving into an emotionally-charged string of originals: the heart-tugging “Midnight In Harlem” and “Don’t Let Me Slide” from 2011’s Revelator–the first official release after The Derek Trucks Band merged with Susan Tedeschi‘s band to form Tedeschi Trucks Band–and the newly-introduced “All the World”. On a day when much of the world furrowed their brows at the news and the overall state of the country, as high school students in TTB’s home state fought for their security and protection, the rock and soul of Tedeschi Trucks Band was especially poignant.The husband-and-wife duo led the band through Elmore James‘ blues standard “The Sky Is Crying” to begin the classic cover portion of the evening. Derek Trucks Band’s “Get What You Deserve” came next, followed by the band’s cover of “All My Friends” by Cowboy, which was debuted in 2010 but revived at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ on Valentine’s Day this year. From there, another relatively-rare cover of Four Tops‘ “Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever” presented itself, followed by a traditional cover of “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?”–a song that the Allman Brothers Band played throughout their career, and on almost every night of their final week at the Beacon Theatre in October of 2014.As if hitting the recharge button, Tedeschi Trucks Band bounced back into their anthemic “Bound For Glory”, another favorite from 2011’s Revelator, followed by their go-to cover of John Prine‘s “Angel From Montgomery”. In a nod to their setting–the legendary Capitol Theatre, which Jerry Garcia famously named as one of his two favorite venues in the whole country–the band swung into “Sugaree”, before closing the set with Let Me Get By‘s “I Want More”.For their encore, Tedeschi Trucks Band once again swung open the door with a charged two-song nod to Sly & The Family Stone, moving from “Sing a Simple Song” into “I Want To Take You Higher”, the song pairing’s first appearance since the band’s encore rendition with Jon Batiste on 10/2/15. Thanks to Jonathan Healey and Relix, you can watch pro-shot video of the full show below:[Video: Relix]Up next, Tedeschi Trucks Band will head to Nashville, TN for their first of four nights at the Ryman Auditorium over the next two weekends.

Lunt, scholar of Slavic languages and literatures, dies at 91

first_imgHorace Gray Lunt, Samuel Hazzard Cross Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures Emeritus, passed away on Aug. 11 in Baltimore, Md., scarcely a month short of his 92nd birthday.Born Horace Gray Lunt II in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Sept. 12, 1918, Lunt received his degree magna cum laude in German in 1941 from Harvard, going on to become one of the world’s leading experts in Slavic philology and linguistics.At Harvard he was a member of the Slavic Department faculty from 1949 to 1989 and served as its chair from 1959 to 1974. Armed with considerable linguistic and analytic skills, Lunt was instrumental in reshaping Slavic philology in the United States in structuralist terms. He insisted on the highest standards of textual analysis, providing new pedagogical tools for the post-World War II generation of American Slavists, investigating understudied areas of Slavic linguistics, and indicating new projects for in-depth study in Slavic languages, literatures, and cultures. A staunch foe of nationalistic exploitation of language for political purposes, Lunt strove his entire career to ensure that linguistic argumentation rested on a rational, factual basis, countering any discussion based on nationalism or demagoguery. Lunt was a superlative teacher, providing his students, undergraduate as well as graduate, with abundant handouts, charts, texts, and textbooks to ensure comprehensive understanding of the subject matter at hand, with clarity and accuracy his guiding principles. His interests in Slavic languages were wide-ranging, from paleography, phonology, morphology, and syntax to etymology, sociolinguistics, history, literature, and religion, and he leaves behind a large bibliography of published books, articles, and reviews.Lunt was promoted from assistant professor to associate professor in 1954 and received a tenured full professorship in 1960, the same year he was named a Guggenheim Foundation Fellow. In 1973 he succeeded Roman Jakobson as the Samuel Hazzard Cross Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures.He is survived by Sally Herman Lunt, his wife of 47 years, daughters Elizabeth Gray Lunt and Catherine Lunt Greer, son-in-law David S. Friedman, and five grandchildren. A memorial commemoration of Lunt’s life and work will be held on Oct. 22, at 3 p.m. in the Fong Auditorium of Boylston Hall at Harvard University. A reception will follow in the Faculty Club.last_img read more
