20140528: China rainstorms leave at least 26 dead/ Erdrutsch und Überflutungen in Meißen

20140526/ China rainstorms leave at least 26 dead

BEIJING, May 26 (Xinhua) -- At least 26 people have been confirmed dead and 10 others are missing after rainstorms in several provinces in south and central China, according to reports from local flood control authorities. In central China's Hunan Province, the death toll from floods had risen to seven as of 10 a.m. Monday, while three others were missing. Continous downpours have caused floods in mountainous areas and raised rivers in counties like Chenxi, Mayang and Shaodong, where a large number of houses collapsed and farms are submerged. About 400,000 people in six cities were affected and 16,000 displaced with the collapse of 520 houses. The rain also hit Guangdong, Guizhou and Jiangxi provinces.

/SZ/ 20140527) Erdrutsch und Überflutungen in Meißen

In Meißen haben Starkregenfälle kurz nach 14 Uhr den Hang an der Hohen Eifer im Triebischtal zum Abrutschen gebracht. „Es war wie beim Junihochwasser vergangenes Jahr“, so Augenzeuge Jörg Mosch. Als Schlammlawine ergoss sich das abgespülte Erdreich in Richtung Innenstadt. Erst die Steigung an der Porzellan-Manufaktur hielt die braune Brühe auf. Rund um das Triebischtal bildeten sich Staus, der ADAC schleppte steckengebliebene Autos ab. Nach Angaben der Meißner Stadtwerke musste das Triebischtal gegen 15.30 Uhr vom Netz genommen werden

 
   
20140525: In age of runaway superbugs, handshakes now declared more dangerous than smoking

(the watchers/ 20140525) In age of runaway superbugs, handshakes now declared more dangerous than smoking

New research from the UCLA reveals that the danger of spreading disease through hand to hand contact is growing rapidly, especially in an age of runaway super-bugs. One day, hospital lobbies may display signs with an X through a picture of a handshake, prohibiting visitors and health care professionals from making simple contact with one another. One day, visitors may be asked to leave the building for hugging one another or holding each other's hands. Healthcare professionals could be reprimanded for giving a professional handshake to patients or visitors...

Hard-to-treat MERS bringing fear to health care officials As hard-to-treat diseases like MERS make their way to America, healthcare officials are beginning to view human contact more fearfully than before....read more...

(CDC) Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is viral respiratory illness first reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012. It is caused by a coronavirus  called MERS-CoV. Most people who have been confirmed to have MERS-CoV infection developed severe acute respiratory illness. They had fever, cough, and shortness of breath. About 30% of people confirmed to have MERS-CoV infection have died.So far, all the cases have been linked to countries in the Arabian Peninsula. This virus has spread from ill people to others through close contact, such as caring for or living with an infected person. However, there is no evidence of sustained spreading in community settings....find out more...

 
   
20140524: Tropical Storm Amanda Forms in the Eastern Pacific; Not a Threat to Land

(wunderground/ 20140524) Tropical Storm Amanda Forms in the Eastern Pacific; Not a Threat to Land

The season's first named storm of 2014, Tropical Storm Amanda, has formed in the Eastern Pacific. Amanda is over 600 miles southeast of Manzanillo, Mexico, and is not a threat to any land areas. The arrival date of May 23 for season's first Eastern Pacific tropical storm is a bit early, compared toclimatology. Usually, the first tropical storm of the season arrives on June 10, and the first hurricane on June 26. Last year, the season's first tropical storm, Alvin, formed on May 15, and the first hurricane,Barbara, occurred on May 29. ...read more...

A huge earthquake of at least 6.5 on the Richter scale has shaken Greece and parts of Turkey. It struck off the coast of Greece in the Aegean Sea area at around midday local time (1100 CET.) The quake was felt in Athens and Istanbul and shook the entire Thrace and Aegean regions. The U.S. Geological Survey put it at 7.2 on the richter scale although Turkish authorities and the Institute of Geodynamics of Athens reported it as 6.5....read more...

(euronews/ 20140522) Risk of disease as Balkan flood waters recede

The stench of decay and the spreading of disease is fast becoming the main concern for authorities in areas affected by the worst floods to hit the Balkans in living memory. With temperatures rising and the water level dropping the Serbian agriculture ministry has appealed for chemicals to help with the clean-up operation. The cost of the damage across the region is expected to run into the billions of euros with both Serbia and Bosnia appealing for international aid. Adding to the drama for those affected, authorities in Serbia have urged people not to consume food and crops from the devastated areas....read more...

 
   
10140515/ Deadly floods hit eastern Europe

Heavy rainfall has sparked severe flooding across large parts of eastern Europe.

In Serbia, more than four months average of rain fell on Wednesday forcing authorities to declare a nationwide state of emergency.

At least one firefighter was killed during a rescue operation on the Jasenica River. The body of another man was recovered from the Danube in Novi Sad.

Several Bosnian cities have also been badly affected by floods caused by what is thought to be the heaviest rains of the past century....read more...

 

 

 

 
LATEST EARTHQUAKE & VOLCANO REPORTS

Kavachi submarine volcano (Solomon Islands): continuing intermittent eruptive activity

It is likely that some volcanic activity has continued intermittently at the undersea volcano after a discolored water plume was first spotted on 29 January this year...

Nishino-shima (Volcano Islands): The eruption on the remote island continues. The most recent overflight pictures by the Japanese Coast Guard show two active vents, one with a small lava-filled vent likely producing strombolian explosions, the other emitting a steam and gas plume...
Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): VAAC Darwin raised the Aviation Color Code to "Red" after a possible major ash plume was spotted on satellite imagery. According to the original report, a possible ash plume rose to estimated 50,000 ft (15 km) altitude 12:32 UTC on 22 May and drifted SW. The height was later reduced to 35,000 ft (12 km). 
Merapi (Central Java, Indonesia): The Indonesian Volcanological Survey (VSI) lowered the alert level of Merapi back to "Normal" (1 out of 4). This decision came after signs of unrest had recently decreased again:
- Earthquake activity decreased both in number and type during the past weeks.
... [read more]
San Miguel (El Salvador): An eruption of the Chaparrastique volcano in the near future is becoming more and more likely. Tremor continues to rise and pulsating gas emissions have become stronger and sometimes contain small amounts of volcanic ash.
The increased tremor and gas emissions suggest movements of hot fluids (gasses, water, magma) into the volcano's shallow plumbing system.
... [read more]
Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): Following a week with no recorded vulcanian explosions, two relatively strong ones occurred this morning, producing ash plumes that rose to 11-12,000 ft (3.3-3.6 km) altitude. Since then, the Showa crater has been constantly venting ash.
 
       
WEEKLY SATELLITE REVIEW OF SOLAR ACTIVITIES (AR, flares, CMEs, SEPs)
   
     
LAST MAJOR SOLAR EVENT/ EVOLUTION

MAY 24- 2014: A major M 1 flare occured in AR 12065 at 18: 35 and unleashed a significant CME, that will partially hit the Earth around May 26. (img 7)

MAY 23- 2014.Activity decreased during the past week and the solar disc is again just barely spotted on May 23. On May 23, Active region AR 12071/ 73 rotated in on the Eastern limb and is currently the only AR that produces minor flares associated to CMEs. ( images 04- 05) . There was a minor CME on May 21 ( img 4) that was measurable on May 23 and a larger eruption on May 22 ( img 5) . The second eruption was associated to a temperary increase of solar protons in the interplanetary field those became active in the geomagnetic field on May 23, and interact currently with the geomag. electrons. The region around CH 518 was the source of a filament eruption on May 23 (img 06)

(images below Nr 01- 03) 12071 was AR 12049 on April 27- 2014- during the last rotation period and AR 12026 on March 31- 2014 during the previous one, when it was very active with C and M flares. The main sun spots in the east this combined active regions seesm to have dissapeared ( possible by an SEP) . What remains is the group of smaller sun spots in its western part- now numbered as AR 12071. This particular region seems to be newly active, but major events rather will not be expectable from this region .

The overall solar activity decreased during the last months as expected after crossing the 11 year cycle peak and heading towards the minimum expectable around the year 1919. The fluctuation however is still present

20140418/
13:19 UTC
complex nested solar region AR 12036 (35- 37 produced and M 7,.8 LDE flare peaking with a CME at 13:19 UTC. The event was associated with a medium strong SEP. First Protons arrived soon after 13 uTC- thus were accelerated near to the speed of light,due to the fact , that the eruption took place near the central solar meridian and the proton speed is highest radially to the eruption center. means, that some proton effects such as hot spot activities will delay resp takle place slowly
 
20140413- 16
 
The integral Electron flux began to increase after strongly been compressed by active protons. (20140415) Integral electron flux is expected to exceed treshold of 1.000 pfu on 20140416
 
20140405
after 12 UTC
Proton flux slightly increased to max 1.0 pfu after solar event
 
20140325
08 UTC
Integral,proton flux rose after CME event on 20140324 to values up to 1 pfu.
 
20140317
 
Integral proton flux has decreased to normal values after March 07. But the high amount of protons those impacted during this long lasting proton storm ist still effective with heat in the earth body and mantle .Hot spot activities are still present on the Canary islands. The proton influence also still knocks down the integral electron flux to zero and even into negative values. There is a slight recovery of the electron since March 17 . Values will further increase and exceed 100 pfu at any time in about 1 or two weeks ( SEP phase II) , if no new SEP occures.
 
     
20140228
 
Integral Proton flux increased further on February 28 and reached 100 pfu early in the morning. I have not reviewed the solar events yet. but protons storms/ eruptions are what I call " the invisible eruption"

SEP EVENT LOG:
   
20140418/
13:19 UTC
complex nested solar region AR 12036 (35- 37 produced and M 7,.8 LDE flare peaking with a CME at 13:19 UTC. The event was associated with a medium strong SEP. First Protons arrived soon after 13 uTC- thus were accelerated near to the speed of light,due to the fact , that the eruption took place near the central solar meridian and the proton speed is highest radially to the eruption center. means, that some proton effects such as hot spot activities will delay resp takle place slowly
 
20140413- 16
 
The integral Electron flux began to increase after strongly been compressed by active protons. (20140415) Integral electron flux is expected to exceed treshold of 1.000 pfu on 20140416
 
20140405
after 12 UTC
Proton flux slightly increased to max 1.0 pfu after solar event
 
20140325
08 UTC
Integral,proton flux rose after CME event on 20140324 to values up to 1 pfu.
 
20140317
 
Integral proton flux has decreased to normal values after March 07. But the high amount of protons those impacted during this long lasting proton storm ist still effective with heat in the earth body and mantle .Hot spot activities are still present on the Canary islands. The proton influence also still knocks down the integral electron flux to zero and even into negative values. There is a slight recovery of the electron since March 17 . Values will further increase and exceed 100 pfu at any time in about 1 or two weeks ( SEP phase II) , if no new SEP occures.
 
     
20140228
 
Integral Proton flux increased further on February 28 and reached 100 pfu early in the morning. I have not reviewed the solar events yet. but protons storms/ eruptions are what I call " the invisible eruption"

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 28/2100Z to 29/2100Z: The geomagnetic field has been at quiet to unsettled levels for the past 24 hours. Solar wind speed, as measured by the ACE spacecraft, reached a peak speed of 395 km/s at 29/1057Z. Total IMF reached 8 nT at 29/1910Z. The maximum southward component of Bz reached -7 nT at 29/0921Z. IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on days one and two (30 May, 31 May) and quiet to unsettled levels on day three (01 Jun).

SEP EVENT LOG:
   
20140418/
13:19 UTC
complex nested solar region AR 12036 (35- 37 produced and M 7,.8 LDE flare peaking with a CME at 13:19 UTC. The event was associated with a medium strong SEP. First Protons arrived soon after 13 uTC- thus were accelerated near to the speed of light,due to the fact , that the eruption took place near the central solar meridian and the proton speed is highest radially to the eruption center. means, that some proton effects such as hot spot activities will delay resp takle place slowly
 
20140413- 16
 
The integral Electron flux began to increase after strongly been compressed by active protons. (20140415) Integral electron flux is expected to exceed treshold of 1.000 pfu on 20140416
 
20140405
after 12 UTC
Proton flux slightly increased to max 1.0 pfu after solar event
 
20140325
08 UTC
Integral,proton flux rose after CME event on 20140324 to values up to 1 pfu.
 
20140317
 
Integral proton flux has decreased to normal values after March 07. But the high amount of protons those impacted during this long lasting proton storm ist still effective with heat in the earth body and mantle .Hot spot activities are still present on the Canary islands. The proton influence also still knocks down the integral electron flux to zero and even into negative values. There is a slight recovery of the electron since March 17 . Values will further increase and exceed 100 pfu at any time in about 1 or two weeks ( SEP phase II) , if no new SEP occures.
 
     
20140228
 
Integral Proton flux increased further on February 28 and reached 100 pfu early in the morning. I have not reviewed the solar events yet. but protons storms/ eruptions are what I call " the invisible eruption"

Integral proton flux has decreased to normal values after March 07. But the high amount of protons those impacted during this long lasting proton storm ist still effective with heat in the earth body and mantle .Hot spot activities are still present on the Canary islands. The proton influence also still knocks down the integral electron flux to zero and even into negative values. There is a slight recovery of the electron since March 17 . Values will further increase and exceed 100 pfu at any time in about 1 or two weeks ( SEP phase II) , if no new SEP occures.

Integral Proton flux increased further on February 28 and reached 100 pfu early in the morning. I have not reviewed the solar events yet. but protons storms/ eruptions are what I call " the invisible eruption"

SEP EVENT LOG:
   
20140418/
13:19 UTC
complex nested solar region AR 12036 (35- 37 produced and M 7,.8 LDE flare peaking with a CME at 13:19 UTC. The event was associated with a medium strong SEP. First Protons arrived soon after 13 uTC- thus were accelerated near to the speed of light,due to the fact , that the eruption took place near the central solar meridian and the proton speed is highest radially to the eruption center. means, that some proton effects such as hot spot activities will delay resp takle place slowly
 
20140413- 16
 
The integral Electron flux began to increase after strongly been compressed by active protons. (20140415) Integral electron flux is expected to exceed treshold of 1.000 pfu on 20140416
 
20140405

Proton flux slightly increased to max 1.0 pfu after solar event

SEP EVENT LOG:
   
20140418/
13:19 UTC
complex nested solar region AR 12036 (35- 37 produced and M 7,.8 LDE flare peaking with a CME at 13:19 UTC. The event was associated with a medium strong SEP. First Protons arrived soon after 13 uTC- thus were accelerated near to the speed of light,due to the fact , that the eruption took place near the central solar meridian and the proton speed is highest radially to the eruption center. means, that some proton effects such as hot spot activities will delay resp takle place slowly
 
20140413- 16
 
The integral Electron flux began to increase after strongly been compressed by active protons. (20140415) Integral electron flux is expected to exceed treshold of 1.000 pfu on 20140416
 
20140405
after 12 UTC
Proton flux slightly increased to max 1.0 pfu after solar event
 
20140325
08 UTC
Integral,proton flux rose after CME event on 20140324 to values up to 1 pfu.
 
20140317
 
Integral proton flux has decreased to normal values after March 07. But the high amount of protons those impacted during this long lasting proton storm ist still effective with heat in the earth body and mantle .Hot spot activities are still present on the Canary islands. The proton influence also still knocks down the integral electron flux to zero and even into negative values. There is a slight recovery of the electron since March 17 . Values will further increase and exceed 100 pfu at any time in about 1 or two weeks ( SEP phase II) , if no new SEP occures.
 
     
20140228
 
Integral Proton flux increased further on February 28 and reached 100 pfu early in the morning. I have not reviewed the solar events yet. but protons storms/ eruptions are what I call " the invisible eruption"

SEP EVENT LOG:
   
20140418/
13:19 UTC
complex nested solar region AR 12036 (35- 37 produced and M 7,.8 LDE flare peaking with a CME at 13:19 UTC. The event was associated with a medium strong SEP. First Protons arrived soon after 13 uTC- thus were accelerated near to the speed of light,due to the fact , that the eruption took place near the central solar meridian and the proton speed is highest radially to the eruption center. means, that some proton effects such as hot spot activities will delay resp takle place slowly
 
20140413- 16
 
The integral Electron flux began to increase after strongly been compressed by active protons. (20140415) Integral electron flux is expected to exceed treshold of 1.000 pfu on 20140416
 
20140405
after 12 UTC
Proton flux slightly increased to max 1.0 pfu after solar event
 
20140325
08 UTC
Integral,proton flux rose after CME event on 20140324 to values up to 1 pfu.
 
20140317
 
Integral proton flux has decreased to normal values after March 07. But the high amount of protons those impacted during this long lasting proton storm ist still effective with heat in the earth body and mantle .Hot spot activities are still present on the Canary islands. The proton influence also still knocks down the integral electron flux to zero and even into negative values. There is a slight recovery of the electron since March 17 . Values will further increase and exceed 100 pfu at any time in about 1 or two weeks ( SEP phase II) , if no new SEP occures.
 
     
20140228
 
Integral Proton flux increased further on February 28 and reached 100 pfu early in the morning. I have not reviewed the solar events yet. but protons storms/ eruptions are what I call " the invisible eruption"
