Wildfires Leave Santa Rosa, Calif. Looking Like Aleppo, Syria

Posted by feww on October 11, 2017

Toll from N. California’s ferocious wildfires continued to grow

As of Tuesday evening (PDT) the fires had destroyed 2,000 structures and killed at least 17 people, with more than 170 other reported as missing.

  • Eleven of the fatalities, and the missing reports are from Sonoma County.
  • Large sections of the city of Santa Rosa have been razed by the Tubbs fire, making it look like the war-stricken city of Aleppo in Syria.
  • At least six more fatalities have been reported in Napa, Mendocino, and Yuba Counties, Cal Fire said.

The two largest fires, the Tubbs fire and the Atlas Peak fire in Napa County, have consumed  27,000 and 25,000 acres, respectively, Cal Fire reported.

About 30,000 people are under mandatory evacuation orders.

“17 large wildfires that started in the past 24 hours continue to burn across California and have burned over 115,000 acres. The winds that fanned these fires Sunday night and Monday morning have decreased significantly, but local winds and dry conditions continue to pose a challenge. With the decrease in the winds combined with cooler weather, firefighters made good progress overnight. Sheriff officials have confirmed that 11 people have died as a result of the wildfires in Sonoma, Mendocino, Napa and Yuba counties. These fires have already burned an estimated 1,500 homes and commercial structures. Several Damage Assessment Teams have been deployed to get a full account of the destruction.

“Yesterday Governor Brown declared a State of Emergency in Napa, Sonoma, and Yuba Counties, as well as a State of Emergency in Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Nevada and Orange counties.

“Red Flag Warnings in Southern California due to gusty winds and high fire risk remain in place, but are expected to end later this morning. The warnings in Northern California have all ended, but breezy and dry conditions remain.”

Anthrax Outbreak Kills 109 Hippos in Namibia

Posted by feww on October 11, 2017

Namibian authorities say an anthrax outbreak may have caused the deaths of 109 hippos in one of the country’s national parks, Bwabwata National Park.

“We first noticed the deaths of 10 hippos last week Sunday, but the number increased during the week,” Bwabwata National Park director told reporters. “As we speak, the number of deaths is 109. We suspect an anthrax outbreak, but our vete­rinary team is still to confirm that.”

Two of the hippos were discovered dead in the Kavango River outside the park. New Era toured the park on Saturday with the help of park warden Jonas Hausiku and one could see hippo carcasses scattered by the river in the park and over streams of stagnant water that link with the river.

“This is a situation that we have seen before. It happened in Zambia before and it mainly occurs when the level of the river is so low… Our scientist will advise properly, but we suspect it is anthrax.

The above clip had 3,507,670 views within the first few hours of posting on YouTube!

“Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against,” he raps in the videotaped performance, shown during last night’s BET Hip Hop Awards.

“If you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this,” he says, before giving “the finger.”

The 44-year-old rap artist, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, calls the so-called president racist.

“Racism’s the only thing he’s Fantastic 4 cause that’s how he gets his rock off, he’s orange.”

He also slams Trump for focusing on NFL players who “take a knee,” before matches.

“This is his form of distraction, plus he gets an enormous reaction when he attacks the NFL, so we focus on that instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada,” he says.

“All these horrible tragedies and he’s bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers.”
