Posted by feww on March 24, 2016

Wildfires burn across 75,000 acres from Oklahoma to Kansas

Gov Brownback has declared a state of disaster emergency for parts of south-central Kansas as wildfires continue to threaten about 1,000 homes and businesses.

The so called Anderson Creek Fire has consumed about 75,00 acres since Tuesday night near the Kansas border in Woods County, Oklahoma. The blaze has since spread into Barber and Comanche counties in Kansas, NWS reported.

The fire is now threatening residents of Medicine Lodge in Barber County, according to the mayor, who has called for voluntary evacuations of the town’s 2,000 residents.

Meanwhile, the federal authorities have proclaimed a Management Assistance Declaration for the Anderson Creek Fire (FM-5120).

Japan Kills Hundreds of Minke Whales

Japan fleet returns from Antarctic whale hunt with hundreds of slaughtered whales

Japanese whaling fleet returned home Thursday after harpooning 333 minke whales in its annual Antarctic massacre, despite worldwide opposition.

Some 230 of the catch were females, with 90 percent of the mature females pregnant, according to reports.

“The number of pregnant females is consistent with previous hunts, indicating that the breeding situation of minke whales in the Antarctic is healthy,” Japan’s Fisheries Agency said in a statement.

The 2015/16 hunt followed a brief hiatus prompted by the United Nations’ International Court of Justice ruling, which described the annual hunt as “a commercial venture masquerading as science,” said reports.
