76 CRIMES

Gay Star News, among others, reports:

All the participants in today’s St Petersburg gay pride parade have been arrested and are being detained in police vans.

Some participants were badly beaten by anti-gay protestors.

Nikolai Alekseev, one of Russia’s most prominent LGBT activists who was arrested last month for organizing a gay rights march, confirmed with GSN that around 60 fellow activists and pro-gay supporters are now in police custody. …

[He said that] participants were detained for breaching Russia’s ‘gay propaganda’ bill that passed Russia’s upper house in parliament two days ago.

The Russian LGBT Network cited different criminal charges on its Facebook page:

FOR THE EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC…EAST OF 140 DEGREES WEST LONGITUDE..

1. SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH AN AREA OF LOW
PRESSURE CENTERED ABOUT 450 MILES SOUTHWEST OF ACAPULCO MEXICO HAS
CHANGED LITTLE OVER THE PAST FEW HOURS. HOWEVER…ENVIRONMENT
CONDITIONS REMAIN FAVORABLE FOR A TROPICAL DEPRESSION TO FORM TODAY
OR TOMORROW. THIS SYSTEM HAS A HIGH CHANCE…90 PERCENT…OF
BECOMING A TROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS IT MOVES
GENERALLY NORTHWARD AT AROUND 5 MPH.

ELSEWHERE…TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION IS NOT EXPECTED DURING THE

1. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
140 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 10.0N 104.5W TO 17.6N 105.3W
WITHIN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS. AVAILABLE DATA DOES NOT JUSTIFY
ISSUANCE OF NUMBERED TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNINGS AT THIS TIME. WINDS
IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED TO BE 15 TO 20 KNOTS. METSAT IMAGERY AT
281800Z INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS LOCATED NEAR 10.8N
104.3W. THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS.
2. REMARKS: AN AREA OF CONVECTION HAS PERSISTED NEAR 10.8N 104.3W,
APPROXIMATELY 500 NM SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF ACAPULCO, MEXICO. RECENT
ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES A CONSOLIDATING
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) LOCATED UNDERNEATH PERSISTENT
DEEP CONVECTION. A 281503Z SSMIS MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS THE
CONSOLIDATING LLCC AND INDICATES FORMATIVE CONVECTIVE BANDING ACROSS
THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY. A 281601Z SCATTEROMETRY PASS INDICATED 15-20
KNOT WINDS SURROUNDING THE LLCC. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES GOOD
DIVERGENCE ALOFT AS WELL AS LOW (5 TO 10 KTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED BETWEEN 15 AND 20
KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1009 MB.
DUE TO THE INCREASED CONSOLIDATION OF THE LLCC AND DEEP CONVECTIVE
BANDING ALONG THE NORTHERN PERIPHERY, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24
HOURS IS HIGH.
3. THIS ALERT WILL BE REISSUED, UPGRADED TO WARNING OR CANCELLED BY

South Africa: Nelson Mandela ‘Stable’ And ‘Trying To Open Eyes’ – 270613 2000z

“Mandela’s fate lies with God” – Mandla

news24.com 2013-06-27 21:17

 

 

Johannesburg – Former president Nelson Mandela‘s condition is stable though still critical, as the presidency announced, his grandson Mandla Mandela said on Thursday.

“Every improvement in my grandfather’s health is cause for celebration for many of us,” he said in a statement.

 

He continued to be heartened by the messages of support for the ailing icon, but was disappointed by the few who continued to spread rumours about his health.

 

“I call upon those responsible to desist from spreading mischievous rumours about Madiba‘s state of health. Our government has been keeping all of us informed in this regard and there is no reason to doubt the accuracy of the information they provide to the public,” he said.

 

“At the end of the day my grandfather’s fate, like that of everyone else, lies with God and our ancestors.”

 

Mandla Mandela visited his grandfather in hospital earlier on Thursday.

 

He said the family continued to be grateful to government, the ANC, and the doctors in charge of Mandela’s health during “this difficult period”.

 

The presidency announced around mid-afternoon on Thursday that Mandela’s condition had improved during the night.

 

According to the presidency’s statement: “President Jacob Zuma visited former president Nelson Mandela in hospital in Pretoria today, 27 June, and was informed by the medical team that Madiba‘s condition has improved during the course of the night.

 

“He remains critical, but is now stable,” spokesperson Mac Maharaj said.

Mandela ‘Stable’ And ‘Trying To Open Eyes’

SKY NEWS 6:07pm UK, Thursday 27 June 2013

The President says Nelson Mandela’s condition has improved overnight, as the icon’s daughter slams media “vultures”.

Nelson Mandela’s daughter has hit out at “racists” and “vultures” in the media, as the presidency says the anti-apartheid icon has improved overnight.

After visiting him in his Pretoria hospital,Makaziwe Mandelasaid her father – who is reportedly no longer able to breathe unassisted – is still “very critical”.

“Anything is imminent, but I want to emphasise again that it is only God who knows when the time to go is,” she told the public broadcaster SABC.

“I won’t lie, it doesn’t look good. But as I say, if we speak to him, he responds and tries to open his eyes.

“He’s still there. He might be waning off, but he’s still there.”

She also criticised the “crass” media frenzy, likening the media to vultures.

“It’s like truly vultures waiting when a lion has devoured a buffalo, waiting there you know for the last carcasses, that’s the image that we have as a family,” she said.

“And we don’t mind the interest but I just think that it has gone overboard.”

She also accused the foreign media of “a racist element” by crossing cultural boundaries.

“They violate all boundaries,” she said.

“Is it because we’re an African country that people just feel they can’t respect any laws of this country, they can violate everything in the book? I just think it’s in bad taste, it’s crass.”

Her comments come as South African President Jacob Zumaalso visited Mr Mandela, saying the ailing former leader remained critical but stable.

“He is much better today than he was when I saw him last night. The medical team continues to do a sterling job,” MrZuma said in a statement.

The President abruptly cancelled a trip to Mozambique after making a late night visit to the revered former leader.

It is the first time Mr Zuma has scrapped a public engagement since Mr Mandela entered hospital on June 8.

South Africans have been praying, singing and dancing outside the Mediclinic Heart Hospital, where the 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader was taken with a recurring lung infection.

Sky News Correspondent Alex Crawford, who is outside the hospital, said the mood is celebratory.

A group of children released 95 white balloons after praying for the Nobel Peace Prize winner.

“There seems to be a determined effort to actually celebrate what Nelson Mandela has achieved throughout his life and pay homage to the fact that he is engaged in yet another fight right to the end,” Crawford said.

US President Barack Obama, who is in Senegal for his first significant tour of Africa,has paid tribute to Mr Mandela, saying he is a “hero for the world”whose legacy will live on throughout the ages.

Mr Obama is planning to visit South Africa on Friday as part of his African tour.

The White House has said that it will defer to MrMandela’s family over whether the President would visit his political hero in hospital.

The two men met in 2005 when Mr Obama was a newly elected senator and the former South African president was in Washington and have spoken by telephone since.

They have not met in person since then, although Michelle Obama met with Mr Mandela during a trip in 2011.

Rumbia weakens, Strong Storm floods NE China, next Korea and Japan

“Tropical Storm Rumbia made landfall during the early morning hours on Tuesday bringing gale force winds and heavy rainfall the southernmost portions of China.

The storm is expected to rapidly weaken through Wednesday as it looses its moisture source and friction over southern china tears the base of the storm apart. Still up to 200mm can be expected in some isolated areas in Yunnan province and parts of Northern Vietnam as the storm drops all the rainfall it carried ashore.

Rumbia has been blamed for seven deaths in the Philippines. Six of them children under the age of 10 and all the deaths only coming from two families aboard an overturned boat.  This is why we stress to always make safe decisions and if your not sure if something is safe or not. There is a good chance it is not. It would always be best just to wait for the weather to pass.

Today we are now turning our attention north at a large low pressure system in North East china which is riding atop of the rainy season boundary which has been impacting the weekend the past several weeks. The Yangzi river basin was sharing in on this sour weather but now the boundary is shifting farther north and creating yet more flooding conditions along the way. In Hebei province 213mm of rainfall was reported in the past 24hrs. Now the storm will still likely bring flash flooding to the region, but it is also working its way east. So through Tuesday night in to Wednesday parts of far east Russia, and the Korean Peninsula will receive some of the

Korea Radar

heaviest rainfall along with thunderstorms. The wet and unstable weather will increase from this storm system in Japan producing widespread showers across most of the country on Wednesday.  Heaviest stuff in the Sea of Japan coast and through much of Western Japan. Tokyo could still see a thunder shower or two flare up in the afternoon hours as temperatures climb in to the high 20s.

Okinawa on the other hand will remain relatively dry with only tropical showers possible near the southern Japanese islands. The rainy season officially ended in the Amami region on Monday and now it is still shifting farther north bringing with it the persistent and sour weather showers that were hitting the area in June.

On the tail end of the rainy season front wide spread showers will still be expected through Central China and North of the Yangzi river basin.  Wide spread accumulations up to 50-100mm can be expected here with isolated amounts exceeding 200mm.  In Sichuan province severe floods were seen this past weekend due to this frontal area creating havoc in many towns in villages across central portions of the country. 11 deaths have been reported due to the heavy rains.

A weak tropical wave is also impacting the Philippines with heavy rain showers and scattered thunderstorms today. Already a few locations have lost power due to isolated stronger cells. –westernpacificweather.com

Germany: Dam breaks near Magdeburg; Extremist group threatened to attack flood dams – 090613 2040z

Germany: Dam breaks near Magdeburg; Extremist group threatened to attack flood dams 0906132040z

A dam has broken on the flood-swollen River Elbe in eastern Germany, forcing thousands of people to leave their homes around the city of Magdeburg.

Water levels in Magdeburg stood at 7.44m (24ft) on Sunday, nearly four times higher than normal (2m).

In Magdeburg, more than 23,000 people left their homes as flooding increased and power was shut off.

Flood defences on the Elbe and the River Saale have been weakened by days of heavy rain.

Another dam is in danger, reports the regional broadcaster MDR, and more evacuations may have to take place.

German President Joachim Gauck visited the flood-stricken city of Halle, near Magdeburg, and paid tribute to the way its inhabitants had coped.

It is fantastic to see how different people get together to help others. And you notice that many of them are exhausted, but they are happy and it seems to motivate them, Mr Gauck said.

Unknowns threaten to attack flood dams

Published: 9 Jun 13 15:00 CET

Several newspapers received an anonymous letter on Sunday morning threatening to damage dams set up to hold back flood waters in eastern and northern Germany.

The letters authors, who describe themselves as anti-German, anti-fascist flood brigades, threaten to attack five specific sections of the dam in order to harm people across the country.

One of the dams being threatened is in Gro-Rosenburg, south of Magdeburg, where the River Saale flows into the Elbe, Der Spiegel reported. This dam broke on Sunday morning, though it was already under extreme pressure it is currently impossible to tell whether the damage was down to sabotage.

The crisis team monitoring the anti-flooding measures is taking the threat extremely seriously, and air surveillance of the dams named in the letter has already been beefed up. Patrols have been told to report any irregularities directly to the police.

Investigators told Der Spiegel they had no information on who could be behind the letter, but that its content suggests left-wing extremists.

Thousands of emergency workers, troops and volunteers in Germany battled Sunday against central Europes worst floods in over a decade, which have forced mass evacuations and which one politician termed a national catastrophe.

The focus was on Magdeburg, where vast outlying areas were covered in a sea of brown water, sparked by recent torrential rains which have washed down the Elbe river system from the Czech Republic.

The water level in Magdeburg reached 7.45 metres (24 feet) in the morning, vastly higher than the usual level of around two metres and worse than massive floods that struck the region in 2002, local authorities said.

Almost 3,000 residents were evacuated from the citys Rothensee district, where hundreds of army troops were working to reinforce a dyke protecting a crucial electricity facility to prevent a wider power outage in the city.

More townships were evacuated around Barby, where the Saale tributary meets the Elbe. Some of the 8,000 residents of the nearby town of Aken were taken to safety on military armoured personnel carriers and ambulances.

President Joachim Gauck was due to visit the flood-hit states of Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt on Sunday and join a church service with emergency crew and residents in the town of Halle.

Germany steps up evacuations along flood-hit river

German authorities urged 15,000 more people to flee their homes in a city on the swollen Elbe river Sunday as central Europes worst floods in a decade also threatened Hungary after causing havoc in the Czech Republic and Austria.

A torrent of flood waters in Germany has turned vast areas into a brown water world, sparked a mass mobilisation of emergency workers and caused billions of euros in damage in what one lawmaker termed a national catastrophe.

Rescue helicopters criss-crossed the sky and military armoured personnel carriers rumbled through the flood zone, where thousands of troops, firefighters and volunteers were frantically building up flood defences with sandbags.

Across central Europe, the floods have killed at least 18 people, including 10 in the Czech Republic.

The German city of Magdeburg urged 15,000 residents to leave the east bank of the river, where an almost 7.5 metre (24 feet) peak up from the normal level of two metres was expected to strain saturated dykes for the next few days.

We hope that the dykes will withstand the pressure over the coming days, but we cant be 100 percent sure, said fire brigade spokesman Andreas Hamann, one of 1,200 emergency staff working around the clock in the area.

The move was described as a precaution, but a city spokesman said people really are supposed to leave in face of the danger. In all, 23,000 people in and around the city have been told to evacuate this weekend.

Soldiers in Magdeburg were also struggling to save a power installation in the harbour area, as water damage would not only knock out electricity to tens of thousands of homes but also to water pumps running at full tilt.

Tensions eased in cities upriver along the Elbe and its tributaries, including Dresden, Halle and Bitterfeld, where many evacuation orders were lifted and people returned to start clearing out their mud-caked homes.

The water level in Magdeburg was higher than during once-a-century floods of 2002, local authorities said. Magdeburg lies downriver from where the Saale river spills into the Elbe, creating a water surge a record 40 kilometres (25 miles) long.

Further downstream, towns including Lauenburg and the village of Hitzacker in Lower Saxony were preparing for the peak to hit in coming days.

Regional rains have also severely swollen the Danube, hitting southern Germany, especially the city of Passau, which has moved from alert to clean-up mode.

The deluge has sparked massive emergency responses in Austria, Slovakia and in Hungary, where waters reached a new record in Budapest on Sunday.

In Germany, President Joachim Gauck visited flood-hit areas, where in vast areas only roofs and tree tops stick out of the water and the only access is by boat or helicopter.

One cannot imagine how much remains to be dealt with, he said.

Adding to tensions was a threat to attack dykes from a group calling itself the Germanophobic Flood Brigade. Aerial and ground surveillance had been stepped up, said Saxony-Anhalt state interior minister Holger Stahlknecht.

Ironically, the sun was shining above most of Germanys flood zone, forcing the thousands packing sandbags to seek supplies of sun block and insect repellent.

However, more rains were expected by Monday in Thuringia, Saxony and Bavaria, with as much as 50 litres per square metre expected within a few hours.

Chancellor Angela Merkel was planning a crisis meeting with state premiers on how to share the bill for the disaster estimated to hit tens of billions of euros the Leipziger Volkszeitung newspaper reported.

Were dealing with a national catastrophe, Gerda Hasselfeldt, lawmaker for the conservative Christian Social Union, was quoted saying.

Despite the widespread damage, growth in Europes biggest economy was unlikely to suffer much as a result, said a survey of leading economists by the Welt daily.

Absurdly, economies actually pick up after natural disasters because the property damage needs to be repaired, Deutsche Bank chief strategist Thomas Mayer said. Yahoo News

Tropical monsoon kills 5 in Sri Lanka

AFP June 09, 2013 1:27AM (local time)

AT least five people were killed and dozens were missing as strong monsoon rains and wind lashed Sri Lanka on Saturday, damaging buildings on the tropical island, police said.

Five people were confirmed dead, four at sea and one on land, while dozens of fishermen were missing, police spokesman Buddhika Siriwardena said.

The navy and the airforce have mounted a search for dozens of fishermen who have been reported missing in unusually rough seas, he said.

The Disaster Management Centre said that rains and strong winds forced authorities to open the sluice gates of four major hydroelectricity reservoirs in central Sri Lanka to prevent damage to dams.

Military spokesman Ruwan Wanigasooriya said ground troops were also deployed to help in relief and rescue operations.

Fallen trees blocked many roads, including the main highway to the Bandaranaike International Airport, just north of the capital, police said.

The bad weather was forecast to continue over the weekend with the South Western monsoon packing winds of up to 70km an hour and dumping heavy rain.

Seven people were killed in Sri Lanka last month when a tropical cyclone brushed the islands eastern coast.

June 8, 2013 3:54 pm

The Air Force and the Navy are continuing their joint operations to rescue fishermen who have met with disaster due to inclement weather.

Five fishermen have lost their lives and more than 17 are reported missing.

The government has launched a programme to provide compensation on their behalf and provide maximum relief to their families.

A group of fishermen who ventured out to the sea from Beruwala, Ahungalla, Galle and Gintota were caught in stormy weather last night.

The Navy, Air Force and Coast Conservation Department have launched a joint rescue mission since this morning.

Around 20 vessels that ventured out from Balapitiya fisheries harbour were caught up in the stormy weather.

Three of the vessels have been found and 10 fishermen were admitted to Balapitiya hospital.

A body of one fisherman is also lying in the hospital.

One fishermen had died when a vessel that ventured out from Dodanduwa fisheries harbour carrying two fishermen met with disaster.

The deceased has been identified as 47 year old fisherman named Saumyasiri from Telwatta, Galle.

A body of a fisherman is also lying at Karapitiya hospital.

A sailor who has been injured in the rescue mission has also been admitted to the hospital.

Four fishermen who were caught up in stormy weather at sea are receiving treatment at Colombo National hospital.

Director of the hospital Dr. Anil Jasinghe said that their condition is not serious.

The Navy sent ships as well as fast attack craft from Galle and Colombo for the rescue missions.

Naval spokesman Commander Kosala Warnakulasuriya said that small vessels will also be used if the weather permits.
He said that the Navy has launched special rescue missions.

Jaya Sagara ship and fast attack craft of the Navy were deployed from the Galle harbour while Sura Nimala and Sayura ships and four more fast attack craft were deployed from the Colombo harbour.

One fisherman was rescued in Colombo and two were rescued in Beruwala. He said additional craft are prepared to be deployed. He called on the fishermen not to venture out until the weather clears.

Meanwhile a number of Air Force helicopters are also deployed for the rescue missions.

Air Force Spokesman Group Captain Andrew Wijesuriya said that a large number of fishermen were rescued in the missions carried out in Mt. Lavinia, Balapitiya and Kollupiya.
He said that two fishermen were rescued by the Air Force. They also saved a boat in Beruwala.

Army Spokesman Brig. Ruwan Wanigasuriya called on the people to provide maximum support. He said that the army has launched rescue missions in the south and the west of the country. The army is also providing active participation in the relief operations on land. He called on the people to provide cooperation for the relief work.

Deputy Minister Sarath Kumara Gunaratne said that the government is attempting to provide maximum relief to the fishermen and their family members. He said that a large number of fishermen have met with disaster due to the stormy conditions. He said that the Navy and Air Force commanders have offered maximum cooperation. The Ministry of Disaster Management is providing the necessary support for the fishermen.

There have been allegations against the Met Department for not forecasting the stormy conditions at sea.

Expressing his views, Director of the Met. Department S.H. Kariyawasam said that they had warned about rain and strong winds in the weather forecasts and called fishermen to exercise vigilance. They had also informed the Navy. He said that the warning has not reached the people for whom it was meant. If they had paid more attention the damage could have been minimized.

The train services on the coastal railway line was disrupted this morning due to a protest carried out by a group of fishermen in Dehiwela. The protestors dispersed after Senior DIG Anura Senanayake and Mayor of the Dehiwela-Mt. Lavinia Municipal Council Dhanasiri Amaratinge came to the scene.

The Mayor said that those who attempt to achieve political mileage even during a natural disaster by provoking people should be marginalised. He said that he explained the situation to the protesters and they agreed to disperse. The train services have resumed. itnnews.lk

Five deaths, 17 missing due to adverse weather

June 8, 201306:07 pm

Five persons including 4 fishermen died while 17 fishermen are reported missing so far due to adverse wind conditions affecting parts of the island.

Rescue operations are continuing in search of the missing fishermen, the Disaster Management Center (DMC) said.
Sri Lanka Air Force helicopters and naval vessels have been deployed in a joint rescue mission for fishermen caught in stormy weather off the south western coast of the island.
At least 3 bodies of fishermen were washed ashore in the south western coastal areas of Dehiwela and Beruwela and 13 others injured were rescued in the southern coastal area of Balapitiya.
The fishermen are missing since last night as their boats had capsized in strong winds and heavy rains caused by the activation of the south-west monsoon.
Several fishermen were rescued by an air force helicopter and an aircraft while the Navy divers off three vessels which had been deployed rescued more.
The Met Department has warned of monsoon winds upto 80 kph in the next 24 hours. Angry fishermen also blocked the southern coastal railway track to protest, urging the authorities to launch the rescue mission.
Fishermen community also blame authorities for failing to alert them regarding the weather condition, in order to minimize the casualties.
The Met. Department however says it issued a weather forecast at 3.00 a.m. this mornign advising fishermen and naval communities against venturing out to sea.
Disaster Management Minister Mahinda Amaraweera, speaking to Ada Derana, stated that the Met. Department informed him that they announced the increase in wind and heavy rainfall expected today.

Sri Lanka’s Met Department

Sri Lanka’s Met Department reportedly failed to issue a warning in back in November 2011, a week later Disaster Management Minister of Sri Lanka Mahinda Amaraweera said that he could not understand the reason for that. It would appear that there was a lack of modern equipment and meteorologists at the Department at that time.
http://www.colombopage.com/archive_11B/Nov30_1322642258CH.php

However, thesundayleader (Jan 15, 2012) writes about Sri Lanka’s Meteorological Department … “While not unpleasant to the eye, the lack of modernized equipment does not paint a pretty picture……” http://www.thesundayleader.lk/2012/01/15/blowing-in-the-wind/

Only recently, Disaster Management Minister Mahinda Amaraweera admitted to a “shortage of officials meteorology department compared to the number of electronic and print media” Is it down to funding? How much is a life worth?

The purpose of this is not to have a dig at Sri Lanka’s Meteorological Department as such, but simply to shine a light on a problem that may be risking lives unnecessarily.

Hungary: Budapest flood averted after Danube recedes, but severe storm expected. – 100613 0850z

Lapozzunk lefel a magyar fordts

Budapest’s embrace of the Danube, which normally bisects Budapest as a gently rolling swath of silver, turned threatening on Sunday when the river spilled over its banks and claimed the Hungarian capital as the latest victim of record floods in central and Eastern Europe.

An unusually wet spring has swollen the Danube, the Elbe and several of their tributaries across Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany and Hungary, forcing tens of thousands of people to leave their homes, disrupting rail and road traffic, and causing damage that preliminary estimates have predicted will reach several billion euros.

The authorities in Budapest had declared a state of emergency last Tuesday, anticipating that water level would reach record highs in the north of the country.

The Danube was expected to peak at 8.95 metres Sunday night or Monday morning.

Hungary deployed 7,000 soldiers supported by several thousand volunteers to reinforce dikes along the river.

Hungarian state television showed Prime Minister Viktor Orban at work near the city of Esztergom, north of Budapest.

“The flood is approaching the heart of the country, Budapest,” Orban told reporters Sunday.

“The next two days will be decisive, because the danger will affect the place where the largest number of people live and the most valuables are at risk.”

Budapest flood averted after Danube recedes

AFP

Budapest averted the worst of the floods that caused devastation elsewhere in central Europe, as flood defences held firm, with the Danube starting to recede early Monday (local time) after reaching a historic high.

“We have no reports of any catastrophic situation, the situation is normalising,” Budapest Mayor Istvan Tarlos told a joint press conference with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban early Monday.

The same was true of the rest of the country, where no casualties or serious injuries have been caused by the floods that has been dubbed Europe’s worst in a decade.

“Budapest should be out of danger by Wednesday, and hopes to present a faultless record – no deaths or injuries due to the flood,” Orban said.

The focus of defence efforts now moved to high-risk locations in the south of the country, he added.

Residents evacuated as a precaution from villages in northwest Hungary could begin moving back from Tuesday, Orban said. Around 1400 people have been evacuated nationwide since Thursday.

The Danube in Budapest reached a historic peak of 8.91 metres on Sunday evening, topping the previous record of 8.60 metres in 2006.

Early Monday, the level began to fall however, reaching 8.88 metres by 0600 GMT, according to Tarlos.

Anti-flood barriers along the most threatened areas in the city held firm, he said.

Roads running along the Danube have been closed since Wednesday due to flooding. The main road connecting the capital to the flood-hit areas in the northwest was also still cut off.

“The biggest problem we have at the moment is traffic jams”, Tarlos said, urging people not to use their cars but to opt for public transport instead.” – news.smh.com.au

Thousands have had to leave their homes, as Stephen Evans reports

Some 23,000 people were forced to leave their homes in the east German city of Magdeburg after a dam burst on the flood-swollen River Elbe.

Although water levels in Magdeburg were reported to be subsiding on Monday, other parts of the state of Saxony-Anhalt remain under threat.

In Hungary, 1,200 people had to leave their homes but in the capital Budapest flood defences appear to have held.

At least 18 people have died in the floods in Central Europe.

Analysts say the damage will cost billions of euros to clean up.

The authorities in Germany are investigating an anonymous letter threatening attacks on several dams.

The motive behind the threats is not known, but the threat is being taken seriously, says the BBC’s Stephen Evans in Berlin.

Sandbags

With levels on the Danube peaking, the mayor of Budapest sought to reassure the city’s inhabitants and said leaking dykes had been fixed.

“Budapest is not at risk of a catastrophe, the level is not expected to rise significantly,” Istvan Tarlos said.

Firefighters and volunteers in Nagymaros lay sandbags to keep the flood waters at bay

Along more than 700km (470 miles) of the River Danube, thousands of people, including many volunteers and even convicts from the prisons, worked to reinforce earth and sandbag barriers,

More than 1,200 people have been evacuated from their homes along the river, although no flood-related deaths have yet been reported in Hungary.

In Magdeburg, the capital of Saxony-Anhalt state, more than 23,000 people left their homes on Sunday as flood waters rose to 7.44m (24ft), nearly four times higher than normal (2m).

Some 700 soldiers worked to build a dam of sandbags around a power sub-station in the badly-hit area of Rothensee in a bid to keep the power on.

The Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper reported that flood water levels had fallen slightly in Magdeburg itself on Monday, but other parts of Saxony-Anhalt are still under threat after days of heavy rain weakened flood defences.

The 8,000-population town of Aken and its neighbouring villages were evacuated after a dam on the Elbe river burst on Saturday, the police said.

Another dam is in danger, reports the regional broadcaster MDR, and more evacuations may have to take place.

German President Joachim Gauck visited the flood-stricken city of Halle, near Magdeburg, and paid tribute to the way its inhabitants had coped.

“It is fantastic to see how different people get together to help others. And you notice that many of them are exhausted, but they are happy and it seems to motivate them,” Mr Gauck said.

The flood crest is expected to reach northern Germany in the coming days.

Chancellor Angela Merkel is planning a crisis meeting with leaders of Germany’s regions on how to share the bill for the disaster, the Leipziger Volkszeitung newspaper reported.

“We’re dealing with a national catastrophe,” Gerda Hasselfeldt, an MP with Mrs Merkel’s Christian Social Union (CSU), was quoted as saying.

Budapest battles the rising waters of the Danube

With the Danube river close to peak level in Budapest, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban said he would ask parliament to extend the state of emergency on Monday June 10.

Authorities and volunteers used hundreds of thousands of sandbags to bolster dykes and protect the capital.

Across Hungary, at least 1,200 people were evacuated and more than 40 roads closed.

The city of Visegrad is in a critical position, close to the Danube Bend.

LászlĂł Cseke, the city’s Protection Director told euronews: “If we succeed in protection, we can’t say we won, it would be silly. We have to live with this beautiful river and we have to adapt ourselves to it.”

Access to several towns was already blocked on Sunday June 9.

Euronews’ Andrea Hoyogos reported from Visegrad: “The village of Kisoroszi, not far from here, is now completely cut off. It can’t even be reached by boat anymore, as the road that leads to the boat terminal is flooded.”

Tropical Storm Yagi Sunday Evening Update

Published on June 9, 2013 by

Advisory : Tropical Storm Yagi will remain just that, Tropical Storm through the coming days. This storm is not expected to intensify due to an increase in vertical wind shear and dry air influence wrapping in to the storm system. Even the risk of flooding across Japan should remain limited and local but the threat will still be there as moisture onflow pushes across the Kinki and Tokai regions by mid-week.

Details : Yagi is forecasted to reach a max intensity of 93kph on Wednesday with a pressure of 985hpa before rapidly weakening as it encounters friction due to Japans terrain and increased vertical wind shear.

Westernpacificweather

Monsoonal flow with the ITCZ enhanced by Dante has resulted in 4 deaths and 2 people missing due to flooding and a landslide over the past week.Westernpacificweather

News Reports

PAGASA: TS Dante accelerates slightly, continues moving over Philippine sea

June 9, 2013 11:12pm (PhT)

Tropical Storm Dante (international code name Yagi) accelerated slightly as it continued to move over the Philippine Sea Sunday night, state weather forecasters said.

PAGASA estimated Dante to be 970 km east of Basco, Batanes as of 10 p.m., with maximum sustained winds of 75 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 90 kph.

In its 11 p.m. advisory, PAGASA said Dante was moving north-northeast at 13 kph and is expected to be 1,090 km northeast of Basco, Batanes Monday evening.

By Tuesday evening, it is expected to be 1,260 km northeast of Basco, Batanes, or at 560 km east of Okinawa, Japan.

While no public storm warning signals were raised, PAGASA said Dante may bring rainfall of 5 to 15 mm per hour (moderate to heavy) within its 350-km diameter.

PAGASA said Dante is too far to directly affect any part of the country but will continue to enhance the southwest windflow that will bring rains and thunderstorms over the western sections of southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. DVM, GMA News

India: Bus plunges 150m into mountain gorge, leaving 18 (mostly students) dead, 14 injured, in Himachal Pradesh – 070613 1830z

nnnnnnnnnnnnn

(Photo: EPA/ruvr.ru) Bus plunges 150m into mountain gorge, killing 18 people, in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh

Eighteen people were on Friday killed and 14 others injured – some of them seriously, when a bus rolled down in a 500 feet deep gorge in Sangrah Tehsil of Sirmaur district of Himachal Pradesh.

All the bodies have been recovered and injured persons have been admitted to hospitals at Solan and Rajgarh, Sirmaur SP, Sumedha Dwivedi, told PTI over phone from the spot.

The bus carrying 35 passengers was on its way from Punradhar to Solan when the mishap took place.

The bus left Punradhar around 7.00 a.m. and the accident took place a few minutes later, the SP said.

A large number of villagers rushed to the accident spot and helped the local administration in rescue work. The injured were rushed to Solan and Rajgarh hospitals. The deceased are yet to be identified but most of them are from Punradhar and surrounding villages, police said.

Most victims are said to be students studying in colleges in Solan and Rajgarh.

18 Killed and Dozens Injured in Himachal Pradesh Bus Mishap

By Shruthy Keerthy | June 7, 2013 9:24 PM IST

Himachal Pradesh got its second major shock in a month when eighteen people were killed and 14 others injured as a bus carrying them fell into a 500 deep feet gorge in Sirmaur district of the state.

The accident took place at Sangrah Tehsil of Sirmaur district on the bus ferrying from Punradhar to Solan. The bus was reportedly carrying around 35 persons when the mishap took place. The exact time of the accident is not known, but is believed to have taken place sometime around 7:00 to 7:15 am, shortly after the bus left from Punradhar.

According to authorities, all the bodies have been recovered. A number of villagers were said to have rushed to the spot and helped the local administration in rescue efforts. Some of the injured are in critical condition and have been admitted to various hospitals at Solan and Rajgarh. Most of the deceased have not been identified yet, but many are believed to be mainly from Punradhar and nearby villages. Many of the victims of the mishap are said to be students studying in colleges in and around Solan. Authorities are probing into the cause of the mishap.

 

The accident is the second to have happened this week in the same area. Earlier this week, four persons were killed when their car rolled into a gorge near Bogdar, a village in Sirmaur district.

As many as 500 black spots (chief accident prone areas) have been identified by Himachal Pradesh authorities after fatal road mishaps were identified as one of the major reasons of deaths in the state. Sirmaur is one of the remotest areas in the state and overcrowding of existing vehicles account to more number of casualities.

Earlier this month on 8 May, 40 people were killed when a private bus fell into River Beas in Jhiri Village of Mandi district.

Bangladesh: About 450 garment workers fell ill at a sweater factory near Dhaka, water supply contamination suspected – 060613 1915z

BANGLADESH-TEXTILE-LABOUR-WATER

About 450 garment workers fell ill during their shifts at a sweater factory near Bangladeshs capital, and authorities said Thursday the water supply was suspected.

Investigators from the governments health ministry were testing the water at the Starlight Sweater Factory for possible contamination, area civil surgeon Syed Habibullah said.

The sick workers suffered vomiting, nausea and upset stomachs starting about two hours into their shifts Wednesday. Habibullah said they were given mainly saline at hospitals and those who were improving left by Thursday.

The factory gets its drinking water from an underground reservoir, CEO Mohammad Shafiur Rahman said. Its piped to a tank on the roof of the eight-story building and supplied to each floor by jars. The drinking water is supplied separately from the buildings tap water, which workers are asked not to drink, he said.

The factory that employs about 6,000 people in Gazipur near Dhaka was closed Wednesday but reopened Thursday. We have cleaned the reservoirs overnight and now the water there is safe for drinking, Rahman said.

A building collapse near Dhaka in April killed 1,129 workers, injured others and highlighted the hazardous working conditions in thousands of garment factories in Bangladesh.

Tropical Storm Andrea pummels East Coast

“BOSTON (WHDH) — Soaking rains bore down on places like Peabody Friday night, thanks to an angry Andrea. Kim Santos works at a convenience store. She didnt waste any time and put down sandbags near the door of the store to prevent any flooding. She said the downpours worried her.

I just dont know if I should get ready, prepare and get the sandbags out, start boarding this place up before the water gets in, said Santos.

It may be getting close to the beginning of summer, but the scenes werent anything like that. At a carnival, it was lights out and closed thanks to the storm. The roads saw a lot of water and there was some minor flooding on the North Shore.

Its horrible. Its like floods everywhere, its ridiculous. I just cant believe it. Earlier this week I was playing softball, it was 90 degrees and now its about 50 and its torrential downpour, said Jack Sorrentino.

Everyone was moving slow, including Logan Airport where the storm slowed planes going up and down the East Coast. But many joked about it, saying only in New England could we be soaking in a sweat one week, and now have wind-swept rain and chilly conditions.

Last week I was at my friends house swimming in a pool and I just dont think, I think this is crazy. I cant believe were down here and its so cold out, said Britney Bradberry.

Emergency Management officials are keeping their eyes on the skies. The hope is they wont have to use sandbags, but theyre ready just in case.” – nbcnews.com

Hurricane statistics to know

Tropical Storm Andrea zipping up the East Coast

West Palm Beach, FL (Photo: wptv.com) (Click photo for link to story & video)

JENNIFER KAY | June 7, 2013 04:57 AM EST | AP  huffingtonpost.com

MIAMI — After bringing rains, heavy winds and even tornadoes to parts of Florida, Tropical Storm Andrea was moving quickly toward the coast of Georgia and the Carolinas early Friday, promising sloppy commutes and waterlogged vacation getaways through the beginning of the weekend.

The first named storm of the Atlantic season was losing some intensity late Thursday and by early Friday, its winds were down to 45 mph (75 kph).

Ben Nelson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Jacksonville, said Andrea was moving at a pretty brisk pace and could lose its tropical characteristics as early as Friday morning.

However, forecasters warned it could cause isolated flooding and storm surge over the next two days.

Heavy rains were continuing well away from the storms center. The weather service in Charleston, S.C., advised of an enhanced coastal flooding threat near the high tide Friday morning, as well as of possible tornadoes. Rain bands could bring wind gusts in excess of 40 mph or 50 mph, the weather service said.

Early Friday, tropical storm warnings remained in effect for the East Coast from Altamaha Sound in Georgia to Cape Charles Light in Virginia, the Pamlico and Albemarle sounds and the lower Chesapeake Bay south of New Point Comfort. A tropical storm warning means tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere inside the warning area within a day and a half.

As of 5 a.m. EDT Friday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Andrea was about 30 miles (50 kilometers) northeast of Savannah, Ga., having made landfall a day earlier in Floridas Big Bend area. Andrea was moving northeast near 28 mph (44 kph).

Rains and winds from the storm were forecast to sweep northward along the Southeastern U.S. coast Friday.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott had warned of the risk of tornadoes, and officials said that eight were confirmed across the state.

This one fortunately is a fast-moving storm, he said Thursday. Slower-moving storms can pose a greater flood risk because they have more time to linger and dump rain.

In The Acreage, a part of Palm Beach County, Fla., pre-kindergarten teacher Maria Cristina Arias choked back tears and clutched valuable personal papers as she surveyed the damage done by a tornado to her five-bedroom home when she was away. Windows were smashed and a neighbors shed had crashed into her bedroom.

Its all destroyed, she told The Palm Beach Post. This is unbelievable. I dont know what were going to do.

Her 19-year-old son, Christian, was sleeping when he heard a loud noise.

It was really scary, said the teen, who wasnt hurt. It sounded like something exploded. I didnt know what was going on.

Meanwhile, south Georgia residents were bracing for high winds and heavy rains that could lead to flooding.

On Cumberland Island off the Georgia cost, the National Park Service was evacuating campers as the storm approached Thursday.

My main concern is the winds, said chief park ranger Bridget Bohnet. Were subject to trees falling and limbs breaking, and I dont want anybody getting hurt.

Forecasters were predicting the storm would pass through Georgia overnight, and the island would likely re-open to tourists Friday.

It looks like its picking up speed and thats a good thing because it wont sit and rain on us so long, said Jan Chamberlain, whose family runs the Blue Heron Inn Bed & Breakfast near the Sapelo Island Ferry station on Georgias coast, on Thursday.

In the Carolinas, Andreas biggest threat was heavy rain, with as much as 6 inches expected, the weather service said.

Forecasters didnt expect major problems, however, along the most vulnerable parts of the coast such as the Outer Banks, a popular tourist destination.

John Elardo, a meteorologist with the weather service in Newport, N.C., said the storm would push major waves to the north and northeast, away from the Outer Banks, where storms in the fall and winter wore away dunes and washed out portions of N.C. Highway 12, the only road connecting the barrier island to the mainland of North Carolina.

Andrea could bring up to a foot of flooding on the sound side of the Outer Banks, Elardo said.

The rain threatened to ruin a beach day for Angela Hursh, 41, of Cincinnati, who had rented a house in Frisco, N.C. Hursh was planning Friday to soak in the hot tub and watch movies with her 9-year-old and 13-year-old daughters.

I think were just going to hunker down and eat junk food, Hursh said Thursday.

Doug Brindley, who owns a vacation lodging rental service on the northern end of the Outer Banks near Virginia, said Thursday he expects all outdoor activities to be washed out Friday, driving tens of thousands of early-summer vacationers toward unexpected shopping sprees.

Were going to have rain and wind, said Brindley, who owns Brindley Beach Vacations and Sales. Retailers are going to love it.

In Cuba, heavy rains associated with the storm system have soaked the western part of the island for the past several days, overflowing rivers and damaging crops. At least 30 towns were cut off by flooding, and more than 2,600 people sought refuge from the rising waters at relatives homes or state-run shelters, the Communist Party newspaper Granma reported Thursday.

Nepal: Monsoon landslides in Taplejung and Sindhuli leave 8 dead, 3 injured and 7 missing; Rescue work on-going 060613 1245z

Seven including six members of a family are reportedly killed, and four other are missing when a landslide buried a house at Thukimba-6, Taplejung on Wednesday mid-night.

The deceased are identified as Astha Bahadur Siwa (69), his wife, son Salman Siwa (40), daughter-in-law Manamaya Siwa (36), grandsons Nasiram Siwa and Khagendra Siwa.

Also, 10-year-old Naina Siwa, daughter of Tej Man Siwa got killed in the mud-slide.

It is said that the incessant rainfall in the region caused the land to slide in the house causing the fatalities.

In the meantime, a team of police from Area Police Office, Dovan , Nepal Army, and locals are carrying on the rescue process. Likewise, a team under command of Police Inspector Yam Bahadur Paudel have left to the disaster area which is about a day walk from the district headquarters.

In another incident in the same region at Thukimba-6, Taplejung, three persons got injured when the landslide buried the house of Kuber Singh.

Sukman Siwa is rescued in the critical condition. However, five other survived as they were able to run away when the disaster hit the house.

According to the police, the continuous rainfall in the region has been hindering the rescue process.

Seven members of the same family, including three children, were killed on Thursday when a landslide triggered by heavy monsoon rains buried their house in a remote village in northeastern Nepal, police said.

Police rescuers were sent to the area to search for survivors after part of a hillside above Thumkina village broke away and smashed into two houses below, officials told AFP.

“In total seven people have died,” Anup Narayan Jha, a local police constable, said.

“Four more are missing while two have been seriously injured,” he said adding that the injured were being taken to the nearest health post.

“The downpour started in the evening and stopped only in the middle of the night.”

Jha told AFP that six more police officers were en route to the disaster site, an eight-hour trek from the nearest road.

He said the family lived in a thinly populated village in the rugged highlands of Taplejung district, one of Nepal’s poorest areas, 260 kilometres (160 miles) east of Kathmandu.

Hundreds of people die every year from flooding and landslides during Nepal’s monsoon season, which typically starts in June and ends in September.

Ireland: Baby Porpoise stranded on Portmarnock beach in Dublin – 040613 2140z

At 3.15pm today the Irish Coast Guard were requested to assist the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG) with a stranded baby Porpoise on Portmarnock beachin Dublin.

A Coast Guard team from Howth station travelled by boat and jeep to the location and meet with the IWDG representative. Porpoises are very similar to dolphins but have shorter beaks and are seen in the Irish Sea with the same swimming patterns as dolphins.
The decision was made to bring the baby mammal who was beached back to the sea in the hope it would successfully swim away. The boat team lead by coxswain Jaimie Blandford carefully placed the mammal on board and brought it a kilometre out into the open water.
The porpoise now named “Fungie Beag” was placed in the water, after some initial hesitation it successfully returned to the water and swam back into the Irish Sea, hopefully returning to its family.

Europe: Floods continue to wreak havoc as experts warn of plague of mosquitoes – 070613 1040z

Blttern Sie nach unten fr die deutsche (Google-bersetzung)

Floods continue to wreak havoc across northern and central Europe.

EURONEWS 06/06 03:07 CET

The irony is that while the weather is clear, run-off means that river levels are continuing to rise.

In Germany, the army has been drafted in to help.

The last great flood was in 2002 they are now saying that, along the Elbe, this one will be even worse.

The same is happening along the Danube.

On the Austro-Slovak border, hundreds of firefighters work to save what they can after the river burst its banks.

Budapest is also bracing itself for record flooding from the swollen Danube.

The authorities expect high water levels to peak next Monday at around 8.75 metres. Flood preparations are underway at 20 locations across the city.

There is particular concern, though, over a small zoo on Margaret Island a popular tourist attraction in the city.

300,000 sandbags have been used to build a nine metre high dam.

An operation is underway to evacuate the animals from their enclosures.

Merkel praises flood fighting efforts

Published: 7 Jun 13 07:40 CET

“German Chancellor Angela Merkel has praised the “wonderful solidarity” of tens of thousands struggling against central Europe’s worst river floods in over a decade and promised more help for the victims on her second visit in three days to disaster-hit areas.

Vast stretches along the Elbe river basin have been submerged in northeast Germany and upstream in the Czech Republic, with only trees and red-tiled roofs sticking out of the muddy water in many abandoned villages now accessible only by boat or helicopter.

The picture of devastation was similar along the mighty Danube, which has jumped its banks in Germany’s southern Bavaria state and Austria and sparked large-scale disaster preparations in Hungary, where the water was expected to peak in coming days.

Merkel on Thursday visited one of Germany’s most flood-threatened cities, Bitterfeld in Saxony-Anhalt state, where two lakes, one higher than the other, loom dangerously close, threatening what locals called a “mini-tsunami” and forcing a mass evacuation.

“The people are scared and it’s understandable,” said Merkel, who shook hands with soldiers and civilians on the visit coming four months ahead of elections.

“We can’t undo the force of nature but I think people can count on everything humanly possible being done,” she said, thanking young people who have organised aid efforts online as well as the 85,000 deployed firefighters, troops and aid workers.

“People here are facing a very difficult situation for the third time,” Merkel said in Bitterfeld – once a heavily polluted industrial centre in the former East Germany – pointing to the communist state’s 1990 collapse and the massive “floods of the century” in 2002.

Having promised 100 million ($130 million) in immediate aid on Tuesday, Merkel said more would be coming: “When the flood has retreated somewhat, we will have to work on an analysis of the total damage and then we will of course help … we will do our part.”

The day Merkel visited, an exhausted volunteer relief worker in his 60s collapsed and died near Magdeburg in the same eastern region – a further casualty after the regional disaster claimed 12 victims, including eight in the Czech Republic.

Bitterfeld was just one of many riverside cities threatened by the swollen Elbe, which has risen from its usual two to above eight metres (six to above 26 feet) after days of torrential rains, putting heavy strain on saturated dykes.

Tens of thousands have been evacuated – including 30,000 in the nearby city of Halle, which a day earlier reported the highest water level in 400 years on a local tributary. Nonetheless, some residents remained defiant.

“I’m staying,” said 77-year-old Bitterfeld lakeside resident Joachim Grollmitz. “I won’t let them force me out. We still have electricity and water and can stay informed about the water level.”

But he did admit to AFP to some concern about a possible breach between the two lakes, saying that “then a big wave would come and roll over us”.

The mass mobilisation had its lighter moments.

In a scene reminiscent of the book and movie “The Life of Pi”, a cheetah was taken to safety in a rubber dinghy from a nearby flooded zoo to a dry animal enclosure, now dubbed “Noah’s Ark”. The wild cat had been sedated.

Experts warn mosquito plague to follow floods

Published: 7 Jun 13 07:50 CET

After the flood, the swarm. Experts are warning that the worst flooding seen in Germany for over 500 years could be followed by a plague of mosquitoes.

With so much stagnant water lying around and the possibility of warmer weather on the way, experts say many areas could be about to be invaded by swarms of the blood-sucking insects.

Only a cold snap can stop the insects now, said biologist Norbert Becker from the German Mosquito Control Association (Kabs).

If it stays very cold, then [the mosiquitoes] don’t want to bite or fly, said Becker, but if it gets warmer, then you can safely say that they will make themselves very apparent. In many places numbers could reach plague levels within the next few weeks, he added.

Those living along the Elbe, Oder, Donau, Rhine and other rivers should prepare for an inundation of mosquitoes, after flooding could trigger numerous eggs laid in damp flood planes to hatch.

We can assume that everywhere where there has been severe flooding and there are flood planes there, or also flooded fields, that a plague of mosquitoes is on its way, said Becker.

Before females can lay eggs they must mate with a male and consume some blood. Then it is only a matter of time before the insects arrive, depending on the weather.

The development of the larvae in water depends on the temperatures, said Becker. If it gets warmer, this can take one week, but up to two or more weeks in cold weather.

Becker’s Kabs organisation has recently been fighting mosquitoes along the upper Rhine by spraying breeding grounds with a protein mixture which destroys the insects’ gut and kills them.

But no such precautions have yet been taken along the Elbe, said Becker, due to a lack of staff with experience of the rare extreme flooding conditions.

They have to know the breeding grounds, they have to map them, they have to have the infrastructue people who know what to do, said Becker.

Health effects of flood events

There is very limited quantitative evidence of the health impacts of floods. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has undertaken a preliminary review of the adverse health effects of flood events.

Flood events are the most frequently occurring natural disasters worldwide, and may increase in the future as a result of climate change. A limited number of short term epidemiological studies have been conducted to assess the health impacts of flooding, but studies of long-term health and economic impacts are lacking.

Limited data on flood events shows that the greatest “burden of mortality” is from drowning, heart attacks, hypothermia, trauma and vehicle-related accidents. The speed of onset of floodwaters is a determining factor in the number of immediate flood-related deaths.

Adverse effects on human health include the following:

  • Trauma deaths, mainly by drowning. Drowning is the leading cause of death in case of flash floods and coastal floods. Fatal injuries can occur during evacuation or during cleanup activities.
  • Flood-related injuries, such as contusions, cuts and sprains have been reported in several studies, as have burns, electrocutions, snake bites and wound infections. However, the number of serious injuries observed after violent flooding events generally turns out to be much lower than initial estimates predict.
  • Enteric infections due to the disruption of sewage disposal and safe drinking water infrastructure.
  • Increases in mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, and post-traumatic stress disorder among flood victims. The risk estimates for physical illness in adults declined after adjustment for psychological distress, while psychological distress remained strongly associated with flooding after adjustment for physical illnesses.
  • Vectorborne disease, such as malaria, dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever, yellow fever, West Nile fever and rodent-borne disease, such as leptospirosis. There is some evidence that diarrhoeal disease increases after flooding, particularly in developing countries but also in Europe. Standing water caused by heavy rainfall or overflow of rivers can act as breeding sites for mosquitoes, and therefore increase potential exposure to infections such as dengue, malaria and West Nile fever among people affected by the disaster and among emergency workers. West Nile fever has emerged in Europe after heavy rains and flooding, with outbreaks in Romania in 1996-97, the Czech Republic in 1997 and Italy in 1998.
  • There is also an increased risk of infection from diseases contracted through direct contact with polluted waters, such as wound infections, dermatitis, conjunctivitis, and ear, nose and throat infections.
  • Contamination by toxic chemicals during floods is theoretically possible but no verifiable correlation has been observed or measured so far.
  • Other negative health outcomes, for example related to the disruption of healthcare services and population displacement.

Dresden centre spared as floods ravage Germany

Volunteers pass sandbags to shore up flood defences in Dresden An army of volunteers has been fighting to hold the waters back

The River Elbe has crested in the German city of Dresden, flooding wide areas but sparing the historic centre.

People had worked frantically to shore up defences as the river peaked nearly 7m (22 feet) above its normal level.

It is one of many German cities battling severe floods, which have killed at least 15 people across central Europe.

Tens of thousands have been evacuated and areas further downstream are bracing for the arrival of high waters.

Dresden in the state of Saxony was badly hit by floods in 2002 but this time defences appear to have saved historic buildings including the cathedral and opera house.

Thousands of emergency personnel and residents worked through the night to fill sand bags and build up flood barriers.

Volunteers race to fill sandbags as waters rise

The same scene was repeated along the Elbe, where huge areas have been inundated. Latest fears are focused on the cities of Bitterfeld and Halle.

Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Bitterfeld on Thursday and promised further emergency aid.

The situation also remains serious in Deggendorf on the River Danube in Bavaria, where levees burst on Wednesday.

The Danube peaked on Thursday in the Slovak capital Bratislava, where the main flood defences held firm. High water in the Hungarian capital Budapest is expected on Monday.

Upstream along the Elbe in the Czech Republic, huge areas remain under water and emergency workers are using boats to get supplies to people cut off.

As a result of the flooding, three people have died in Germany, eight in the Czech Republic and four in Austria, according to an EU status report.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • NEW: At least 15 flood deaths are reported across central Europe since the weekend
  • The River Elbe is expected to peak in the German city of Dresden within hours
  • The River Danube has also caused wide flooding in southern Germany
  • Cities downriver in Slovakia and Hungary are already on alert for the surge

Dresden, Germany (CNN) — The German city of Dresden waited anxiously Thursday to see if the swollen River Elbe, which has brought misery to thousands in the Czech Republic, would breach its flood defenses.

The river is expected to crest in Dresden late Thursday or early Friday. It is running at about 8.5 meters, compared with a normal average of 2 meters, and is likely to reach about 9 meters (30 feet) when the flow peaks.

CNN iReport: See floods through a volunteer’s eyes

The city is just one of many across central Europe to face the prospect of the worst floods since the devastating inundations of 2002.

A look at flooding across Europe

Health risks from floods

The streets of the nearby historic town of Meissen are under several feet of water ahead of the river’s peak, affecting homes and businesses, and forcing the evacuation of some 4,500 people.

Although the sky is mostly clear, heavy rain at the weekend after a wet spring has filled the region’s rivers to bursting point. More rain is forecast for the coming weekend.

The flooding has caused at least 15 deaths across the region and forced the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from their homes in the Czech Republic and Germany.

The peak of the flood wave from the Czech Republic along the Elbe is expected in the eastern German states of Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt, the European Commission said.

Some 15,000 people had been evacuated from their homes in Saxony and 3,300 in Saxony-Anhalt as of early Thursday, it said. A possible evacuation of 30,000 people from Halle, near Leipzig, is also being planned.

Authorities in Saxony said at least 3.5 million sandbags have been filled and deployed in flood defenses in Dresden and surrounding towns.

After passing through Dresden, the Elbe’s floodwater will continue to flow to the north and west and should reach Torgau, in Saxony, and Wittenberg, in Saxony-Anhalt, over the weekend, said CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller.

If the crest occurs as forecast in Wittenberg it will pass the record high measured in 2002, Miller said.

Preparations are also under way further north, in the states of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Rising Danube

The Danube, another of Europe’s great rivers, has caused major flooding in southern Germany and Austria, and the crest now menaces towns and cities downstream in Slovakia.

Felipe Bezerra, a 33-year-old university student, went to a bridge in Vienna, Austria, overlooking the Danube to see the surging torrent.

He told CNN iReport he was struck by the sound and force of boats’ motors, all straining against the steadily rising floodwater.

In Austria, efforts are focused on the River Danube in the province of Lower Austria, said the European Commission’s emergency response center. River levels are declining across the country but roads, railway connections and river transport remain affected.

Four people are reported to have died and three are missing in Austria, it said.

Villages and suburbs around the Slovakian capital, Bratislava, about 35 miles from Vienna, are already experiencing severe river floods, the European Commission said. The area is threatened by both the Danube and the Morava.

A state of emergency has been declared in Bratislava, where the Danube is expected to rise further on Thursday, Slovakian fire department spokeswoman Silvia Jancovicova told CNN Thursday.

Boats were used to evacuate 25 people, including a child, in the Devin neighborhood of the capital, she said.

No deaths have yet been confirmed in Slovakia, Jancovicova said.

The water level in Bratislava should start falling by midday Friday, Miller said. However, high flood warnings are posted for the entire Danube in lower Slovakia along the border with Hungary until Monday.

In Germany, the situation has stabilized along the Danube, the European Commission’s emergency response center said. About 12,600 people have been evacuated in the southern Bavaria region, and many roads and railway lines are closed.

An emergency alert is still in place in the Bavarian town of Regensburg, and Deggendorf is completely cut off, it said.

Some 55,000 emergency workers, most of them members of local fire services, have been involved in Germany’s flood response efforts, Interior Ministry spokesman Markus Beyer said.

Another 25,000 people — including 12,000 federal civil protection workers, 5,500 soldiers and 2,500 federal police officers — have also been deployed since Saturday, he said.

The flood wave in the Danube is expected to reach the Hungarian capital, Budapest, on Sunday, it said.

A state of emergency was declared this week in three counties along the river Danube in northwestern Hungary, as well as in Budapest.

Czech Republic fears more rains to come

The historic center of the Czech capital, Prague, was largely spared as the swollen Vltava River peaked there earlier this week, but other areas fared less well.

Some 700 towns were affected by the floods, Czech fire service spokeswoman Nicole Zaoralova said Thursday.

Some of the 19,000 people evacuated are now able to return to their homes, she said, but the country is not yet in the clear.

More heavy rain is expected during the weekend and authorities are doing what they can to regulate water levels on the Vltava ahead of this, she said.

In northern Bohemia, the River Labe, as the Elbe is known there, reached its peak levels around midnight Wednesday, she said. However, the risk of flooding remains high due to the weather forecast.

More rainfall is also expected in Prague, especially toward the end of the weekend, she said.

Eight deaths have been reported in the Czech Republic and four people are missing, a fire service spokeswoman said Thursday.

Three deaths occurred Saturday in southwestern Germany, the Interior Ministry for the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg said.

Rescue in southern Germany have been using helicopters to pluck families from rooftops in the town of Deggendorf as the Danube flood crisis continues.

Thousands of people were moved from the Bavarian town as levees along the Danube and Isar rivers broke.

Floodwater is also threatening parts of Austria and the Czech Republic.

At least 12 people have died and two are missing as a result of the floods across the three countries, triggered by heavy rain following a wet spring.

Seven deaths were recorded in the Czech Republic and three in Germany, while two people were reported dead and two missing in Austria, according to a European Commission update early on Tuesday evening.

Parts of Germany have not seen such severe flooding in centuries. However, in the Czech Republic, the water level has stabilised in the capital Prague, where there had been fears of a repeat of disasters in 2002 and 1997.

Records beaten
Firefighter Alois Schraufstetter said the floodwater in Deggendorf was already 3m (9.8ft) high. This is a life-threatening situation, he was quoted as saying by Germanys DPA news agency.

Around 600 people have been evacuated in Dresden alone
Four farmers were rescued at the very last minute by a helicopter before their tractor was submerged, he added.

The level of the River Elbe in the historic German city of Dresden, where at least 600 people were evacuated, is not expected to peak until Thursday morning.

In another eastern city, Halle, streets were under water on Wednesday morning. According to German news magazine Spiegel, it is the highest water level in the city in four centuries.

Meanwhile, the floods were receding in the south German city of Passau. People could be seen sweeping up muck from their streets.

In the Austrian city of Krems, emergency workers have been shoring up a dyke under threat from the swollen Danube.

Thousands of people left their homes in the Czech Republic in recent days as floodwater threatened to overwhelm flood barriers.

In the low-lying industrial city of Usti nad Labem, the River Elbe was spilling over the 10m-high (33ft-high) metal flood barriers.

The peak there is expected some time on Wednesday.

The main rail link connecting Prague and Berlin in Germany has been underwater, with trains being diverted.

Bei so viel stehendes Wasser herumliegen und die Mglichkeit der wrmeren Jahreszeit auf dem Weg, sagen Experten vielen Bereichen knnte etwa durch Schwrme von den blutsaugenden Insekten angegriffen werden.

Nur ein Klteeinbruch kann die Insekten jetzt aufhren, sagt der Biologe Norbert Becker von der deutschen Mosquito Control Association (Kabs).

“Wenn es sehr kalt bleibt, dann [die mosiquitoes] wollen nicht beien oder zu fliegen”, sagte Becker, aber wenn es wrmer wird, “dann kann man sicher sagen, dass sie machen sich sehr deutlich.” In vielen Orten Zahlen knnte Pest Ebenen innerhalb der nchsten Wochen zu erreichen, fgte er hinzu.

Diese leben entlang der Elbe, Oder, sollte Donau, Rhein und andere Flsse fr eine berschwemmung von Mcken vorbereiten, nach der Flutung konnte zahlreiche Eier in feuchten Flut Flugzeuge Luke legte auslsen.

“Wir knnen davon ausgehen, dass berall, wo hat es schwere berschwemmungen und Hochwasser gibt es Flugzeuge gibt, oder auch berfluteten Feldern, dass eine Mckenplage auf dem Weg ist”, sagte Becker.

Richtlinien fr die berwachung von invasive Mckenarten in Europa
Gesundheitliche Auswirkungen von Hochwasserereignissen

Es ist sehr begrenzt quantitative Nachweis der gesundheitlichen Auswirkungen von berschwemmungen. Das Europische Zentrum fr die Prvention und die Kontrolle von Krankheiten (ECDC) hat eine vorlufige Bewertung der gesundheitsschdlichen Auswirkungen von Hochwasserereignissen vorgenommen.

Hochwasserereignisse sind die am hufigsten auftretenden Naturkatastrophen weltweit und kann sich in Zukunft als Folge des Klimawandels zunehmen. Eine begrenzte Zahl von kurzfristigen epidemiologischen Studien wurden durchgefhrt, um die gesundheitlichen Auswirkungen von berschwemmungen zu beurteilen, aber Studien von langfristigen gesundheitlichen und wirtschaftlichen Auswirkungen fehlen.

Begrenzte Daten auf Hochwasserereignisse zeigt, dass die grten “Last der Sterblichkeit” ist vor dem Ertrinken, Herzinfarkt, Hypothermie, Trauma und Fahrzeug-Unflle. Die Geschwindigkeit des Einsetzens von Hochwasser ist ein entscheidender Faktor in der Zahl der unmittelbaren Flut-Todesflle.

Nachteilige Auswirkungen auf die menschliche Gesundheit gehren die folgenden:

Trauma Todesflle, vor allem durch Ertrinken. Ertrinken ist die hufigste Todesursache bei Sturzfluten und Kstengebieten. Fatal Verletzungen knnen whrend der Evakuierung oder whrend der Bereinigung Aktivitten auftreten.
Flood-Verletzungen, wie Prellungen, Schnitte und Verstauchungen wurden in mehreren Studien berichtet worden, wie Verbrennungen, Stromschlge, Schlangenbisse und Wundinfektionen haben. Allerdings ist die Zahl der Schwerverletzten nach heftigen berschwemmungen Ereignisse beobachtet Regel erweist sich als sehr viel niedriger als ersten Schtzungen prognostizieren.
Darminfektionen aufgrund der Unterbrechung der Abwasserbeseitigung und Trinkwasserversorgung Infrastruktur.
Erhht in psychischen Problemen wie Angst, Depression, Schlaflosigkeit, und post-traumatische Belastungsstrung unter Flutopfer. Die Risikoeinschtzungen fr krperliche Erkrankungen bei Erwachsenen sank bereinigt um psychische Belastung, whrend psychische Belastung blieb stark mit berschwemmungen nach Adjustierung fr krperliche Erkrankungen assoziiert.
Vektorkrankheiten Erkrankungen wie Malaria, Dengue-Fieber und Dengue-hmorrhagisches Fieber, Gelbfieber, West-Nil-Fieber und Nagetier-bertragene Krankheiten wie Leptospirose. Es gibt einige Hinweise, dass Durchfallerkrankungen nach der Flutung, insbesondere in Entwicklungslndern, sondern auch in Europa erhht. Stehendes Wasser durch starke Regenflle oder berflutungen verursacht als Brutsttten fr Moskitos zu handeln, und erhhen somit die potenzielle Exposition gegenber Infektionen wie Dengue-Fieber, Malaria und West-Nil-Fieber unter den Menschen von der Katastrophe betroffen und unter Rettungsassistenten. West-Nil-Fieber ist in Europa nach starken Regenfllen und berschwemmungen entstanden, mit Ausbrchen in Rumnien in den Jahren 1996-97, der Tschechischen Republik im Jahr 1997 und in Italien im Jahr 1998.
Es ist auch ein erhhtes Risiko einer Infektion von Krankheiten durch direkten Kontakt mit verschmutzten Gewssern, wie Wundinfektionen, Dermatitis, Konjunktivitis und Ohr, Nase und Rachen-Infektionen beauftragt.
Verschmutzung durch giftige Chemikalien bei Hochwasser ist theoretisch mglich, aber kein nachweislich Korrelation wurde beobachtet oder gemessen so weit.
Weitere negative gesundheitlichen Folgen, zum Beispiel im Zusammenhang mit der Unterbrechung von Dienstleistungen im Gesundheitsbereich und Verdrngung der Bevlkerung.

Over 60 people have been taken to hospital after a school bus crashed with another bus and a tanker truck in central Sweden on Monday morning.

 

The crash occurred outside of rebro, central Sweden, on the E20 highway. One of the buses in the accident was carrying school children on a study trip to Stockholm from Skara.

Many people started screaming and I wondered what happened, 16-year-old Emelie Johannesson, who was half asleep at the time, told the Aftonbladet newspaper.

Around 60 people have been taken to the rebro University Hospital, which is in a state of crisis and has had to clear its emergency room to take in more patients.

This means that we are working with redirecting all conceivable resources in the hospital so we can take in all the patients, hospital spokeswoman Ulrika Julin told the TT news agency.

At least four people are reported to be seriously injured. Other motorists, meanwhile, are seeing long queues as an emergency team clears the highway of debris.

A total of 33 people were injured, 19 of which needed more extensive care than omplstring.

– They have come into sporadic and we have had good staffing so it’s been easy to. They get the care they need, then we are trying to clean up after the disaster and stay in the gain mode because the second accident, said lead nurse Johanna Lindblom.

Comment by Martin
As you can probably explain what “disaster mode” in a hospital means?
11:26

Anders Clark:
Martin: Disaster Area in hospital means in this case as follows:

ER utrymms and regular emergency patients brought to gastro clinic that also vacated from normal patients.
Staff from the hospital, the rest being diverted to emergency room and surgery to receive the acute cases.
The people from the accident found harmless gather in one of the hospital’s halls.

11:26

Anders Clark:
… it is thus a way to mobilize hospital resources to save lives.
11:35

Comment from Bjrne
Different tasks in different media ang. nationality of the tourists. Everything from overseas, Japanese to Korean tourists. Do you know for sure what they are from?
11:36

Anders Clark:
Bjrne: “Korea if I understand it right, we’ve talked to their embassy and the Foreign Ministry,” says Mats Nylen at rebro police
11:36

Comment from Grandma
High speed and short distance between the cars is the reason for this?
11:37

Anders Clark:
Grandmother: We do not know what caused the accident. Police have started an investigation and will provide information on this issue in the future.
11:41

Anders Clark:
Now, police have counted up the number of injured to 19 person. But how seriously injured the 19’s would not care to answer. No life-threatening damage.
11:42

Anders Clark:
Police are not yet announced the relative number. But according to Mats Nylen at rebro police have most unfortunate called home themselves. The number will primarily be for families who have not received any calls.
11:43

Anders Clark:

11:47

Anders Clark:

The hospital has completed disaster situation but “enhancement mode” is still running, according to a press release from the hospital.
11:48

Comment from marcus
read on Corren it was a tanker truck and two buses collided, is that correct?
11:48

Anders Clark:
Marcus: A tanker, two buses and two cars were involved, exactly how the accident went to is not yet clear, but read the article on the site to get an overview of what has happened. Then you are welcome back with questions!
11:48

Comment from work
How is the traffic on the site to the east? Dare you to go away?
11:49

Anders Clark:
Pottering: Traffic will roll since 10:30 o’clock, but then the queues were up to one mil-long during the rescue operation, it is not guaranteed that it rolls at full speed.
11:49

Comment from Bjrne
Starts to AB (which is always on the ball) sends the press conference?
11:50

Anders Clark:
Bjrne: We are working on it. If we do not initiate a transmission so I will try to persuade some benevolent soul to put his phone at the press table and report live here.
11:52

Comment from Donald
The extent has it been on the rescue operation? Has it been reinforcements from other counties, etc.?
11:54

Anders Clark:
Donald: In all honesty, I do not glance at it. The ambulances have driven shuttled to the scene and there have been upwards of 20 police officers on the spot. Firefighters have I not got since 9:30 o’clock.
11:54

Comment from Bjrne
Thank you. Only you do your best, you must be satisfied. Good info so far. Good job!
11:54

Anders Clark:
Bjrne: Thank you so much. Baste with the questions!
12:02

Comment by Martin
Fucking good. I myself have an eye on it roughly, but good to explain it to anyone not in the know at all.
12:03

Anders Clark:
Thank you. Yes, as I said, they have left the disaster situation and gone down to gain position.
12:03

Anders Clark:

… so now candied u ask what “enhancement mode” means 😉
12:08

Comment by Martin
“What does the amplification mode?”
12:09

Comment from Bjrne
Wondering if the “enhancement mode” means that you have more personnel available than normal (not entirely sure).
12:10

Anders Clark:
Bjorn is on to something. Gain Mode is that it allows a lower readiness than into disaster mode.
In practice it means that you have the ability to use more staff to management and can point reinforce aspects of health care that need it. In this case, it is the large number of injured people who need to be treated in the emergency room.
12:13

Comment by Martin
“2nd Gain Mode Allows disaster management at a hospital takes action point strengthening of key functions in health care.”
12:14

Comment by Martin
That’s basically the same on the various hospitals to standard procedures at both amplification mode and emergency mode, however, I believe that the use of various “departments” to move patients to. Have me that the TSO, they have a number of different departments, and to the use of AVA in disaster mode to take care of the most critical.
12:15

Anders Clark:
Glad you are involved!
The basis of the gain and disaster mode is simply to hospitals realize they will not be able to handle the event so that staffing and organization looks like, then organizes the on and call in extra staff if necessary.
12:17

Anders Clark:
Is there anything you want me to ask the hospital or the police about the accident?
12:17

Comment from Joakim
Radio reports that there has been a further incident at about the same place in the queues which have become. The scope is as yet unclear.
12:17

Anders Clark:
Joakim: That’s right, we’re working on it. But it was a few miles away.
12:19

Anders Clark:
My colleague is working with the event and says it’ll be two cars and a truck involved. Unclear injury position.
12:19

Comment from Bjrne
Ask about the situation is critical for any of the casualties (we hope not)?
12:20

Anders Clark:
Bjrne: We will definitely try to sort out the injury situation. We have previously been told that four are seriously injured, but it was when a total of 13 were injured, now we’re up to 19 and the hospital would not say how seriously wounded they are before the press conference.
12:20

Anders Clark:
UPDATE: In the second accident on the E18 should a person be seriously injured.
12:21

Comment from Guest

Anders Clark:
Now they’re talking about emergency situation at the hospital.
As we talked about earlier: Regular emergency has been a disaster emergency, other patients be switched to another room.
12:39

Comment from Bjrne
An accident will rarely alone! Even Tvrsnytt which would broadcast live, have hassles.
12:40

Anders Clark:
Bjrne: But it itches always in the skin when it can not deliver as planned!
12:40

Anders Clark:
There have been talks about a relative number to the police. But now tells police that all injured have been unable to contact relatives.
12:41

Anders Clark:
Which basically means that you who sat and worried about you, that ye may know someone from the accident can take a breather.
12:43

Anders Clark:
– It seems that the buses run into each other and the truck comes as a third vehicle and try to swerve. But it gets investigators show.

Storm chasers featured on ‘Storm Chasers’ killed tracking twister

(CNN) — A group of men who devoted their lives to hunting powerful storms died in the middle of the chase.

Tim Samaras, his son Paul Samaras and Carl Young were killed Friday while following a tornado in El Reno, Oklahoma, relatives told CNN on Sunday. Their work tracking tornadoes was featured on the former Discovery Channel show “Storm Chasers.”

They were among at least nine people that state officials reported killed in storms that struck Oklahoma on Friday night. On Sunday, Oklahoma City Fire Department officials told CNN that searchers had found the bodies of as many as five additional victims, but state officials could not be immediately reached to confirm whether the statewide death toll had increased.

At the intersection where authorities said the three storm chasers were killed, crews hauled away a mangled white truck Sunday that had been crushed like a tin can…

On Tuesday, at least 10 people were confirmed dead in Czech Republic.

About nine others are reportedly missing.

Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas declared a state of emergency on June 2 and promised relief aid.

The Czech Republic capital, Prague, is preparing for more flooding as the Vltava river is continuing to rise.

Vltava Basin, meteorologists not to blame for floods – Czech PM

Zleva ministr dopravy Zbyněk Stanjura, premir Petr Nečas a ministr zemědělstv Petr Bendl vystoupili 5. června v Praze na tiskov konferenci po jednn vldy.

vydno: 05.06.2013, 16:35 | aktualizace: 05.06.2013 16:59

Prague – Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas said today the flood-related problems can be blamed neither on the Vltava Basin management nor meteorologists and Agriculture Minister Petr Bendl (both Civic Democrats, ODS) echoed his opinion.

They were reacting to various critics of the flood situation.

Bendl said he will submit an analysis of the steps taken by the Vltava Basin management during the flooding to the government.

Necas said the Vltava Cascade and the Vltava Basin were proceeding correctly based on the prognoses of the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (CHMU).

“I want to stress that it is weather forecasting, that it is not even possible to blame the CHMU for not having guessed the amount of precipitation, it is really a very complicated thing, even though scientific and based on mathematical models,” Necas said after a government meeting.

Bendl said the cascade maximally used its retention capacities when a huge quantity of water arrived within a short time.

He said the worst situation is when the quantity of water no longer allows the regulation of outflow from water cannons.

Bendl said this did not happen this year, it happened during the devastating floods in 2002.

“In every stage we were in a situation where we were able also through you (journalists) to say how much water will flow through dams and when approximately,” Bendl said.

He said it is up to people and offices beneath the dams what steps to take.

Necas said the government will not say everything was excellent, but it is convinced that people did their work as well as they could, which does not mean that something may be improved.

The flood danger still persists in 25 places in Bohemia. The floods have claimed eight lives and firefighters have evacuated over 19,000 inhabitants. The damage is estimated at billions of crowns.

Prague evacuated because of flooding

Daily Mail Monday, June 03 2013

Flooding in Prague

Prague residents began to evacuate parts of the historic Czech capital before dawn today, hours before the worst flood in over a century was expected to hit the city.

Prague authorities ordered the evacuation of up to 50,000 people, faced by an approaching tide of water after days of rainfall swelled rivers in the south of the central European country and killed seven people.

Shop owners worked overnight to save their goods. Soldiers along with hundreds of volunteers were filling bags with sand and building walls to protect the picturesque medieval quarter of Mala Strana.

Torrential rains have also hit neighbouring Germany and Austria and floods in Russia killed dozens of people, bringing the death toll from European storms to more than 70 in a week.

Prague Mayor Igor Nemec told a news conference that parts of Mala Strana would be flooded by the afternoon because heavy rain in the south forced dams on the river Vltava, which flows through Prague, to open their gates.

We will sound sirens between six and seven oclock to start the next phase of evacuation, he said. People who are affected should prepare for about a four-day trip.

Nemec said the 14th-century Charles Bridge, one of Pragues main tourist attractions decorated with statues of saints, would be closed to the public to allow cranes to remove tree trunks and other debris carried along by the rapidly flowing river.

Water was already overflowing the Vltavas banks in some communities on the outskirts of Prague, especially in the south, and the rain continued to fall.

Jiri Friedel from Povodi Vltavy, a state company managing dams on the Vltava, said Prague had not since 1890 seen the river as high. He said water may rise to one to two metres in some residential areas.

He said he expected the mass of water splashing through the city to reach 20 times the average for this time of the year.

A hospital on the Vltava bank was evacuated. The mayor asked psychologists to help at shelters for evacuees and ordered 3,000 young men enlisted for civic duty to help rescuers.

There was no panic on the streets in the early hours today and many residents appeared to be planning to wait a few more hours to leave their homes.

We are going to a store where I work, then we will go to our relatives, said 75-year-old Arnost Hartman, who was leaving the working-class quarter Karlin, the largest evacuated area, with his wife.

Irena Hrubantova, a 33-year-old waitress at a gambling bar in Karlin, said she had not heard about the evacuations until a friend phoned her four hours after they were ordered.

But now my boss is telling me over the phone I must not leave and guard it here, she said, adding that she was afraid she would lose her job if she left.

Mayor Nemec tried to soothe fears about possible looting, saying police and soldiers would guard all the emptied areas.

The Prague Zoo Garden begun evacuating some animals, including birds and monkeys whose cages could be submerged.

Jan Cervencl, 25, was helping to move goods out of a fitness equipment store where he works and loading them into a van.

We will probably not be able to get all we need out. We found out about it too late, he said.

Thousands of Czechs were already evacuated from the south, including the regional capital Ceske Budejovice, home to Czech Budweiser beer, and Cesky Krumlov, another popular tourist destination. Forecasters said rain would continue.

The water level has stabilised in the capital Prague, where there had been fears of a repeat of disasters in 2002 and 1997.

Floodwater is threatening parts of the Czech Republic. in recent days as floodwater threatened to overwhelm flood barriers.

In the low-lying industrial city of Usti nad Labem, the River Elbe spilled over the 10m-high (33ft-high) metal flood barriers.

The main rail link connecting Prague and Berlin in Germany have been underwater, with trains being diverted.

Published on 5 Jun 2013

Days of heavy rain have forced emergency services to work round the clock trying to evacuate residents from flooded villages in the Czech Republic.

The village of Krivousy, 30 kilometres north of Prague, has been inundated by the river Vltava.

Some locals who lived through the 2002 floods refuse to leave this time. For Krivousy Mayor Jana Koberov it’s a problem:
“The floods this year aren’t so devastating but we won’t be able to get to some the villages until next week.”

That means hardship for those cut off – many of the villages such as Krivousy and Neratovice have no electricity or drinking water.

Over the last few days thousands have sought shelter at relatives’ homes or in schools. For resident Eva Bittnerova it is especially heart breaking.

“We had just built our new house here in Zalezlice after the 2002 floods. Now that has been flooded we will have to start all over again.”

The same village could have been spared this time if a protective dike had not been delayed by a dispute over land. Yesterday the semi-finished dike gave way to an under the onslaught of in pouring of muddy water

Czech Republic Two Dead As Flooding Hits
Prime Minister Petr Necas declares a state of emergency for much of the Czech Republic as swollen rivers threaten historic Prague.

Video: Flooding Hits Historic Prague
Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas has declared a state of emergency for most of the nation because of severe flooding as swollen rivers threatened Pragues historic centre.

Authorities evacuated low-lying areas in the Czech Republic and limited public transport in the capital as water from the Vltava River burst its banks.

The floods have killed at least two people and several people are missing across the country.

Mr Necas pledged 300m Czech Koruna (Ł10m) for relief efforts and said another 2,000 troops were ready to assist in putting up temporary barriers and sandbags in Prague.

He said: The government approved the declaration of a state of emergency which will enable a more effective rescue effort.

The historic area of Prague is a Unesco heritage site boasting hundreds of well-preserved buildings, churches and monuments dating back centuries, including the Charles Bridge straddling the Vltava which was closed due to high water.

A Prague hospital and parts of the zoo were also evacuated.

Rory Pattison, an expatriate worker living in a village just outside Prague, said: The water is about 50 metres from my house but its only 1 or 2 metres from other houses.

We havent had an evacuation notice yet but everyone is making preparations just in case.

In 2002 floods killed 17 people, forced tens of thousands from their homes and caused several billion pounds of damage across the country.

Water levels have not reached that point yet but weather forecasters predict the rain will continue for several days.

Several people have also died in flooding in Germany, Switzerland and Poland.

In neighbouring Austria, torrential rain caused widespread caused widespread flooding and landslides and forced hundreds of people to evacuate their homes.

News agencies in Germany, where at least four people have died or are missing, said large stretches of the Rhine, Main and Neckar rivers have been closed to ship traffic and several cities including Chemnitz, Passau and Rosenheim have issued disaster warnings.

In 2002, 17 people were killed in flooding in the Czech Republic which also caused billions of dollars of damage.

Following that disaster, the Czech government spent $150m (Ł99m) on installing an anti-flooding system to protect Prague.

Vietnam: Health risks from the trade, slaughter and eating of dogs – Trichinellosis, cholera and rabies – 030613 2340z

There is a growing body of evidence highlighting the significant risk the trade, slaughter, and consumption of dogs pose to human health.

For example, the trade in dogs for meat has been linked to outbreaks of trichinellosis, cholera

Thịt ch: Dog Legs and paws stew

and rabies, and slaughtering, butchering, and even consuming, dogs increases people’s exposure to these diseases.

Over recent years in Vietnam, for example, there has been a number of large-scale cholera outbreaks directly linked to the dog meat trade. This has led to warnings from both the Central Bureau of Preventative Health and the World Health Organization (WHO) that the movement of dogs and consumption of dog meat facilitated the spread of the bacteria that causes cholera (Vibrio cholerae), with the WHO stating that eating dog meat was linked to a twenty-fold increase in the risk of contracting the disease.

Rabies is a viral disease spread from animals (usually dogs) to humans, which is nearly always fatal. It represents a serious public health and animal welfare problem around the world, but is most commonly found in Asia, where an estimated 39,000 people die of rabies every year.

With rabies remaining endemic in most countries in the region, many of the dogs traded for human consumption are likely to be infected with the disease. The national and international transportation of dogs used for meat means that infections are easily spread.

The presence of the rabies virus in dogs destined for human consumption has been revealed in studies carried out in slaughterhouses and markets within China, Vietnam and Indonesia.

The illegal trade fails to comply with national animal disease prevention measures, and is in breach of rabies control and elimination recommendations by key human and animal health advisory organisations such as the World Health Organisation and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), and the dog meat trade has specifically been cited as a contributing factor to recent rabies outbreaks in both China and Indonesia within various studies and by the World Health Organisation.” – Bangkok Post

Dog skulls find in Ayutthaya raises meatball fears

“More than 1,000 dog skulls have been discovered on a vacant area used as a garbage dump in Ayutthaya province, raising suspicions that the meat could have been used to make meatballs, a report said on Thursday.

The skulls were found when firefighters tried to put out a blaze at the dump site, near a village in Wang Noi district. According to locals, garbage trucks regularly unload trash onto the empty plot of land, which has a “for sale” sign posted on it.

They said the skulls were likely discarded by a meatball manufacturer who then set the area on fire to destroy the evidence. If the fire had not broken out, the dog skulls would not have been discovered, villagers said.” –

“According to Lola Webber of the Singapore-based Change for Animals Foundation, dog meat consumers are at high risk of contracting rabies and cholera, as well as trichinosis.

From a sample of 76 dog brains collected from slaughterhouses in south and highland provinces of Vietnam, Webber says 16.4 percent were infected with rabies.” AJE

Dog meat and Human health

Rabies

Sourcing of and trading in dogs for human consumption:

The method of sourcing dogs for meat varies in different countries and between provinces. However, throughout Asia, dogs for meat are generally either taken from the streets (stolen/unwanted pets or unowned strays) or are supplied from dog farms.

In most countries in Asia, rabies is endemic within the dog population and dogs collected from the streets are of unknown disease and vaccination status. Despite this, no checks are carried out, so dogs infected with rabies will inevitably be taken with others and killed for their meat. The large-scale trade in and movement of such dogs undertaken for this industry permits the rapid and wide-ranging dispersal of rabies and other diseases, such as cholera and trichinellosis.

In 2008, the World Health Organisation (WHO) highlighted the trade in dogs for human consumption as a contributing factor to the spread of rabies in Indonesia, due to the trade encouraging these animals from various sources to be transported between islands. The long-distance transport of large numbers of dogs killed for their meat has also been linked to outbreaks of rabies in China and Vietnam.
Dog farming:

Large-scale dog farms are common in South Korea and China, with some housing thousands of dogs. These are mostly unregulated and there are no or few enforced recommendations for dog farm management, such as measures for disease control, provision of suitable animal feed, disposal of waste etc. Such premises provide optimal conditions for microbes to proliferate: biologically weakened and vulnerable dogs are susceptible to acquiring microbial infections, especially if they are also in a disordered social situation and living in unhygienic conditions with close contact. Furthermore, because of the stressful and cramped farming conditions, dogs frequently fight, enhancing the opportunity for disease transmission.

Dog slaughtering:

During the slaughtering process, rabies can be passed to humans several ways:

Dogs butchered for meat are often highly stressed and are more likely to bite and scratch handlers, potentially passing on this fatal disease.
*Rabies can spread through the contamination of unrecognised cuts or abrasions on skin as infected carcasses are handled.
*Individuals slaughtering dogs can also transmit the virus to themselves if they touch their eyes or lips while having traces of the dog’s fluids on their hands.

Research highlights that the slaughtering of unvaccinated rabies reservoir species, such as dogs, in areas where the disease is prevalent poses a significant risk to human health.

For example, in 2007, there was an outbreak of rabies in Ba Vi, Vietnam, an important area for the dog meat trade and the District Department of Animal Health (DAH) reported that 70% of deaths were from dog bites but up to 30% were thought to be linked to exposure during slaughter or butchery.

In 2008, research revealed that 20% of dogs tested in slaughterhouses in Hoai duc, Vietnam, had rabies. In recognition of the risk the slaughtering of dogs poses, workers in slaughterhouses in the area are vaccinated against the disease as part of the national programme for rabies control and prevention.

Cholera

Several recent outbreaks of cholera in Vietnam have been directly linked to the production and consumption of dog meat. For example, in 2008 there was an outbreak of the disease in northern Vietnam, which prompted a study to identify risk factors for cholera contraction. The research concluded that the consumption of dog meat, and items served with the meat, were strongly associated with the spread of cholera8. Following these findings, the WHO’s representative in Vietnam, Jean-Marc Olive, warned that eating dog meat, or other food from outlets that serve it, is linked to a 20-fold increase in the risk of developing severe acute watery diarrhoea commonly caused by the cholera bacterium.

Trichinellosis
Trichinella is a zoonotic parasite which causes trichinellosis in humans. In China, trichinellosis has become the most important food-borne parasitic zoonosis, and dog meat consumption has been correlated with eight outbreaks. Similarly in Thailand, the incidence of Trichinella larvae found in dog meat in the areas favouring consumption of the meat is considered to be an upcoming major public health problem.

Tonic food?

Throughout Asia, dog meat is often consumed for its perceived health benefits; for example, dog bone is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, while dog penis and testes are believed to increase virility and cure impotence. A number of classical medical texts also recommend dog meat to fortify the spirit and aid in recovery from illness, classifying dog meat as a medicine as well as a food. It is still common today for doctors to recommend dog meat to patients who have undergone surgery because of its perceived curative effects.

In contrast to China and Vietnam where dog meat is most popular during the winter months as it is believed to have ‘warming effects’, in South Korea dog meat is considered to have ‘cooling effects’, and is more commonly consumed during the summer months, particularly during the boknal or ‘bok’ days the three hottest days of the summer when dog meat soup (boshintang) is favoured.

.
However, whilst there is no scientific evidence to support any of these claims, over recent years, there has been growing awareness of, and concern for, human health risks, which are linked to all stages of the dog meat industry. For example, research shows that sourcing, farming, transporting, slaughtering and consumption of dogs can assist in the transmission of cholera, trichinellosis and rabies.

Human health risks associated with the dog meat industry

In addition to the significant animal welfare issues involved in the dog meat industry, opposition towards the production and consumption of dog meat has become increasingly vocal across the world as a result of mounting national and international awareness of the human health risks associated with this industry.

Antibiotic Abuse

On dog farms, large numbers of dogs are living in close confinement, under stressful conditions, and are usually being fed insufficient, poor quality food.

These factors result in increased levels of infectious disease and high mortality rates.

In an effort to try to control the spread of disease and maximise productivity, there is evidence of farmers resorting to the indiscriminate overuse of antibiotics and vaccines.

Such excessive antibiotic use in farm animals is common and leads to increased levels of antibiotic resistance, which can have negative consequences for both animal health and welfare (as diseases become untreatable) and for human health (when antibiotic-resistant bacteria are transferred from animals to humans).

For example, resistant salmonella and campylobacter involved in human disease are predominantly spread through foods. Highly antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Escherichia coli have recently emerged in farm animals in many countries, and can be transmitted to humans.

In South Korea and China, as in many other countries, the overuse of antibiotics in livestock production systems is already a serious problem, and the issue is likely to be exacerbated on dog farms where there are few regulations, and no monitoring of meat quality or drug residues” – changeforanimals.org

Rabies

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rabies (pronounced/�reŞbi�z/. From Latin: rabies, “madness”) is a viral disease that causes acute encephalitis in warm-blooded animals.[1] The disease is zoonotic, meaning it can be transmitted from one species to another, such as from dogs to humans, commonly by a bite from an infected animal. For a human, rabies is almost invariably fatal if postexposure prophylaxis is not administered prior to the onset of severe symptoms. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system, ultimately causing disease in the brain and death.

The rabies virus travels to the brain by following the peripheral nerves. The incubation period of the disease is usually a few months in humans, depending on the distance the virus must travel to reach the central nervous system.[2] Once the rabies virus reaches the central nervous system and symptoms begin to show, the infection is virtually untreatable and usually fatal within days.

Early-stage symptoms of rabies are malaise, headache and fever, progressing to acute pain, violent movements, uncontrolled excitement, depression, and hydrophobia.[1] Finally, the patient may experience periods of mania and lethargy, eventually leading to coma. The primary cause of death is usually respiratory insufficiency.[2]

Dog meat refers to the flesh and other edible parts derived from dogs. Human consumption of dog meat has been recorded in many parts of the world, including ancient China, ancient Mexico, and ancient Rome.[2] Dog meat is consumed in a variety of countries such as Switzerland,[3] China,[4] Vietnam,[5] South Korea.[6] Dog meat has also been used as survival food in times of war and/or other hardships.[7][8]

Today, some cultures[which?] view the consumption of dog meat to be a part of their traditional cuisine, while others consider consumption of dog to be inappropriate and offensive on both social and religious grounds. Especially with cultural globalization, greater international criticism (particularly from international animal organizations such as the World Society for the Protection of Animals) has been increasingly directed against dog meat consumption and the torture of dogs caged and farmed for their meat.[9] In response to criticisms, proponents of dog meat have argued that distinctions between livestock and pets is subjective, and that there is no difference with eating the meat of different animals.[10][11][12] Historical cultural records in China have, however, noted how Chinese variations on Buddhism have preached against the consumption of dog meat, which is held to be one of the five ‘forbidden meats’. Eating dog is also forbidden under both Jewish dietary laws[13] and Islamic dietary laws.[14][15]

Cameroon

The Mandara mountains people like dog meat[citation needed]. The Mayo-Plata (Mayo Sava district) market is well known for its dog meat outlets[citation needed]. Among the Vame people, domestic dogs are only eaten for specific rituals.[16]

Ghana

The Tallensi, one of many cultures of Ghana, consider dog meat a delicacy. While the Mamprusi generally avoid dog meat, it is eaten in a “courtship stew” provided by a king to his royal lineage. Two Tribes in Ghana, Frafra and Dagaaba are particularly known to be “tribal playmates” and consumption of dog meat is the common bond between the two tribes. Every year around September, games are organised between these two tribes and the Dog Head is the trophy at stake for the winning tribe[17]

Nigeria

Dogs are eaten by various groups in some states of Nigeria, including Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Plateau, Ondo, Taraba and Gombe of Nigeria.[17] They are believed to have medicinal powers.[18][19]

Americas

Canada

It is illegal to sell or serve dog meat, unless it is killed and gutted in front of federal inspectors.[20] If a dog is killed out of the view of federal inspectors, the killing might involve cruelty, which would be a violation of the Criminal Code of Canada, and those convicted may be sentenced to up to 5 years in prison.[21]

Ancient Mexico

In the time of the Aztec Empire in what is now central Mexico, Mexican Hairless Dogs were bred, among other purposes,[22] for their meat. Hernán CortĂs reported when he arrived in Tenochtitlan in 1519, “small gelded dogs which they breed for eating” were among the goods sold in the city markets.[23] These dogs, Xoloitzcuintles, were often depicted in pre-Columbian Mexican pottery. The breed was almost extinct in the 1940s, but the British Military AttachĂ in Mexico City, Norman Wright, developed a thriving breed from some of the dogs he found in remote villages.[24]

United States of America

The term “dog” has been used as a synonym for sausage since 1884 and accusations that sausage makers used dog meat date to at least 1845.[25] The belief that sausages contained dog meat was occasionally justified.[26]

In 1846, a group of 87 American pioneers were stranded by snow while traveling in the Sierra Nevada. Some of the starving people from this group, known posthumously as the Donner Party, ate a pet dog for sustenance.[27]

In late 19th century, a cure for tuberculosis (then colloquially termed “consumption”) using an exclusive diet of dog meat was tried.[28] Reports of families eating dog meat out of choice, rather than necessity, were rare and newsworthy. Stories of families in Ohio and Newark, New Jersey who did so made it into editions of The New York Times in 1876 and 1885.[29][30]

In the early 20th century, dog meat was consumed during times of food shortage.[31]

Native Americans

The traditional culture surrounding the consumption of dog meat varied from tribe to tribe among the original inhabitants of North America, with some tribes relishing it as a delicacy, and others (such as the Comanche) treating it as an abhorrent practice.[32] Native peoples of the Great Plains, such as the Sioux and Cheyenne, consumed it, but there was a concurrent religious taboo against the meat of wild canines.[33]

During their 1803–1806 expedition, Meriwether Lewis and the other members of the Corps of Discovery consumed dog meat, either from their own animals or supplied by Native American tribes, including the Paiutes and Wah-clel-lah Indians, a branch of the Watlatas,[34] the Clatsop,[35] the Teton Sioux (Lakota),[36] the Nez Perce Indians,[37] and the Hidatsas.[38] Lewis and the members of the expedition ate dog meat, except William Clark, who reportedly could not bring himself to eat dogs.[39]

The Kickapoo people include puppy meat in many of their traditional festivals.[40] This practice has been well documented in the Works Progress Administration “Indian Pioneer History Project for Oklahoma”.[41][42]

Arctic and Antarctic

Dogs have historically been emergency food sources for various peoples in Siberia, northern Canada, and Greenland. Sled dogs are usually maintained for pulling sleds, but occasionally are eaten when no other food is available.

British explorer Ernest Shackleton and his Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition became trapped, and ultimately killed their sled dogs for food. Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen was known to have eaten sled dogs during his expedition to the South Pole. By eating some of the sled dogs, he required less human or dog food, thus lightening his load. When comparing sled dogs to ponies as draught animals he also notes:

“…there is the obvious advantage that dog can be fed on dog. One can reduce one’s pack little by little, slaughtering the feebler ones and feeding the chosen with them. In this way they get fresh meat. Our dogs lived on dog’s flesh and pemmican the whole way, and this enabled them to do splendid work. And if we ourselves wanted a piece of fresh meat we could cut off a delicate little fillet; it tasted to us as good as the best beef. The dogs do not object at all; as long as they get their share they do not mind what part of their comrade’s carcass it comes from. All that was left after one of these canine meals was the teeth of the victim – and if it had been a really hard day, these also disappeared.”[43]

Douglas Mawson and Xavier Mertz were part of the Far Eastern Party, a three-man sledging team with Lieutenant B.E.S. Ninnis, to survey King George V Land, Antarctica. On 14 December 1912 Ninnis fell through a snow-covered crevasse along with most of the party’s rations, and was never seen again. Mawson and Mertz turned back immediately. They had one and a half weeks’ food for themselves and nothing at all for the dogs. Their meagre provisions forced them to eat their remaining sled dogs on their 315 mile return journey. Their meat was tough, stringy and without a vestige of fat. Each animal yielded very little, and the major part was fed to the surviving dogs, which ate the meat, skin and bones until nothing remained. The men also ate the dog’s brains and livers. Unfortunately eating the liver of sled dogs produces the condition hypervitaminosis A because canines have a much higher tolerance for vitamin A than humans do. Mertz suffered a quick deterioration. He developed stomach pains and became incapacitated and incoherent. On 7 January 1913, Mertz died. Mawson continued alone, eventually making it back to camp alive.[8]

Dog meat (Chinese: 狗č; pinyin: gǒu ròu) has been a source of food in some areas of China from around 500 BC, and possibly even earlier. Researchers in the Royal University of Technology theorized that wolves in southern China may have been domesticated as a source of meat.[44] Mencius, the philosopher, talked about dog meat as being an edible, dietary meat.[45] Dog meat is sometimes euphemistically called “fragrant meat” (香č xi�ng ròu) or “mutton of the earth” (ĺśľ dĂ yáng) in Mandarin Chinese and “3–6 fragrant meat” (Chinese: 三ĺ香č; Cantonese Yale: sĂam luhk hĂung yuhk) in Cantonese (3 plus 6 is 9 and the words “nine” and “dog” are homophones, both pronounced gáu in Cantonese. In Mandarin, “nine” and “dog” are pronounced differently).

The eating of dog meat in China dates back thousands of years. It is thought to have medicinal properties, and is especially popular in winter months, as it is believed to generate heat and promote bodily warmth.[46][47][48] The meat is popular in Guangdong and Guangxi[49] whence it went on the menu for Chinese astronauts to consume in outer space.[50] Historical records have moreover shown how in times of food scarcities (as in war-time situations), dogs could also be eaten as an emergency food source.[51]

But while remnants of this tradition remain in certain quarters of Chinese society, the degree to which it is deemed to be socially acceptable has now become contested, with Chinese animal groups and pet-owners increasingly speaking out against the practice. Controversy has centered particularly on the cruel and inhumane treatment[citation needed] of dogs prior to their slaughter, with allegations having surfaced that these animals can at times be skinned while still alive.[52] Most notably, a series of events that occurred in various parts of the country in 2012 have raised further awareness on this issue in the mainland, with local and international news media having reported on how Chinese netizens and the Chinese police had been intercepting trucks transporting caged dogs to be slaughtered in such localities as Chongqing and Kunming.[53][54][55]

The movement against the consumption of cat and dog meat was given added impetus by the formation of the Chinese Companion Animal Protection Network (CCAPN), a networking project of the Chinese Animal Protection Network. Expanded to more than 40 member societies, CCAPN in January 2006 began organizing well-publicized protests against dog and cat eating, starting in Guangzhou, and following up in more than ten other cities “with very optimal response from public.”[56] Before the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Chinese officials in Beijing ordered dog meat to be taken off of the menu at its 112 official Olympic restaurants in order to not offend visitors from various nations who would be appalled by the offering of dog meat at Beijing eateries.[57]

From January 2007, more than ten Chinese groups joined an online petition against the consumption of cat and dog meat. The signatures indicate the participants will avoid eating cat and dog meat in the future. The petition received more than 42,000 signatures from the public out of a population of over one billion, and has been circulated around the country.[58][not in citation given]

In China, draft legislation was proposed at the start of 2010, which aims to prohibit the consumption of dog meat.[49] The legislation, however, is not expected to be effective, despite officially outlawing the eating of dog meat if it is passed.[49] On 26 January 2010, the first draft proposal of the legislation was introduced, with the main reason for the law reportedly to protect the country’s animals from maltreatment, and includes a measure to jail people who eat dog for up to 15 days.[59][60] However food festivals continue to promote the meat. For example the 4th annual Yulin, Shaanxi food fair that took place on May 29, 2011 spanning 10 days consumed 15,000 dogs.[61][62]

Hong Kong

In Hong Kong, the Dogs and Cats Ordinance was introduced by the Hong Kong Government on 6 January 1950.[63] It prohibits the slaughter of any dog or cat for use as food, whether for mankind or otherwise, on pain of fine and imprisonment.[64][65] Four local men were sentenced to 30 days imprisonment in December 2006 for having slaughtered two dogs.[66] In an earlier case, in February 1998, a Hong Konger was sentenced to one month imprisonment and a fine of two thousand HK dollars for hunting street dogs for food.[67]

Taiwan

In 2001, the Taiwanese government imposed a ban on the sale of dog meat, due to both pressure from domestic animal welfare groups and a desire to improve international perceptions, although there were some protests.[68] In 2007, another law was passed, significantly increasing the fines to sellers of dog meat.[69] However, animal rights campaigners have accused the Taiwanese government of not prosecuting those who continue to slaughter and serve dog meat at restaurants. Although the slaughter and consumption of dog meat is illegal in Taiwan, there are reports that suggest the practice continues as of 2011.[70]
In Taiwan, dog meat is known by the euphemism “fragrant meat” (Chinese: 香č; pinyin: xi�ngròu). In 2007, legislators passed a law to fine sellers of dog meat NT$250,000 (US$7,730). Dog meat is believed to have health benefits, including improving circulation and raising body temperature.[69]

India

In India, dog meat is eaten only by certain communities in the Northeast Indian border states of Mizoram,[71] Nagaland,[72] and Manipur [73] where it is considered to be a delicacy.

Indonesia

Indonesia is predominantly Muslim, a faith which considers dog meat, along with pork to be “haraam” (ritually unclean) and therefore do not eat it. However, dog meat is eaten by several of Indonesia’s non-Muslim minorities.[74]

The consumption of dog meat is associated with the Minahasa culture of northern Sulawesi and the Bataks of northern Sumatra, where dog meat is considered a festive dish usually reserved for occasions such as weddings and Christmas.[75]

Popular Indonesian dog-meat dishes are rica-rica, also called rintek wuuk or “RW”,[74] rica-rica waung, guk-guk, and “B1”. On Java, there are several dishes made from dog meat, such as sengsu (tongseng asu), sate jamu, and kambing balap.

Dog consumption in Indonesia gained attention in United States where dog is a taboo food, during 2012 Presidential election when incumbent Barack Obama was pointed by his opponent to have eaten dog meat served by his Indonesian stepfather Lolo Soetoro during his stay in the country.[74]

Japan

The consumption of dog meat is not a feature of modern Japanese culture. Dog meat was consumed in Japan until 675 A.D., when Emperor Temmu decreed a prohibition on its consumption during the 4th–9th months of the year.[76] According to Meisan Shojiki ĹŚrai (ĺ�ŤŁčč˛ĺľćťĄ) published in 1760, the meat of wild dog was sold along with boar, deer, fox, wolf, bear, raccoon dog, otter, weasel and cat in some regions of Edo.[77] ĹŚta Nampo recorded witnessing puppies being eaten in Satsuma Province in a dish called Enokoro Meshi (ă��ă�ă�㍣Ż). In 2008, Japan imported 5 tons of dog meat from China compared to 4,714 tons of beef, 14,340 tons of pork and 115,882 tons of poultry.[78]

Korea

Gaegogi (ęśęłę) literally means “dog meat” in Korean. The term itself, however, is often mistaken as the term for Korean soup made from dog meat, which is actually called bosintang (łě�; 補čşćąŻ, Body nourishing soup).

The consumption of dog meat can be traced back to antiquity. Dog bones[further explanation needed] were excavated in a neolithic settlement in Changnyeong, South Gyeongsang Province. A wall painting in the Goguryeo Tombs complex in South Hwangghae Province, a World Heritage site which dates from the 4th century AD, depicts a slaughtered dog in a storehouse. The Balhae people also enjoyed dog meat, and the modern-day tradition of canine cuisine seems to have come from that era.[79]

South Korea

In South Korea (officially the Republic of Korea) dog meat is eaten nationwide and all year round, although it is most commonly eaten during summer.[6]

The Korea Food & Drug Administration recognizes any edible product other than drugs as food.[80] In the capital city of Seoul, the sale of dog meat was outlawed by regulation on February 21, 1984 by classifying dog meat as ‘repugnant food’ (��ě�ěť�), but the regulation was not rigorously enforced except during the 1988 Seoul Olympics. In 2001, the Mayor of Seoul announced there would be no extra enforcement efforts to control the sale of dog meat during the 2002 FIFA World Cup, which was partially hosted in Seoul. In March 2008, the Seoul city government announced its plan to put forward a policy suggestion to the central government to legally classify slaughter dogs as livestock, reigniting debate on the issue.[81][82][83]

South Korean Food Sanitary Law (ěť�ěśě�ť˛) does not include dog meat as a legal food ingredient. Also, dog meat has been categorized as ‘repugnant food’ (��ě�ěť�) based on a regulation issued by Seoul Metropolitan Government, of which using as food ingredient is not permitted.[84]

However, the laws are not strictly enforced. The primary dog breed raised for meat, the Nureongi (��ěť), or Hwangu (황ę); which is a specific breed, different from the breeds raised for pets in Korea.[85][86]

There is a large and vocal group of Koreans (consisting of a number of animal welfare groups) who are against the practice of eating dogs.[87] Popular television shows like ‘I Love Pet’ have documented in 2011, for instance, the continued illegal selling of dog meat and slaughtering of dogs in suburban areas. The program also televised illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, showing the unsanitary and horrific conditions of caged dogs, several of which were visibly sick with severe eye infections and malnutrition. However, despite this growing awareness, there remains some in Korea that do not eat or enjoy the meat, but do feel that it is the right of others to do so, along with a smaller but still vocal group of pro-dog cuisine people who want to popularize the consumption of dog in Korea and the rest of the world.[87] A group of pro-dog meat individuals attempted to promote and publicize the consumption of dog meat worldwide during the run-up to the 2002 Fifa World Cup, co-hosted by Japan and South Korea, which prompted retaliation from animal rights campaigners and prominent figures such as Brigitte Bardot to denounce the practice.[88] Opponents of dog meat consumption in South Korea are critical of practices that are claimed to improve the flavour of dog meat in Korean tradition, such as beating and hanging[citation needed].

The restaurants that sell dog meat do so, often exclusively, at the risk losing their restaurant licenses. A case of a dog meat wholesaler brought up on charges of selling dog meat in arose in 1997. However, an appeals court acquitted the dog meat wholesaler, ruling that dogs were socially accepted as food.[89] According to the National Assembly of South Korea, more than 20,000 restaurants, including the 6484 registered restaurants, served soups made from dog meat in Korea in 1998.[90][91][92] In 1999 the BBC reported that 8,500 tons of dog meat were consumed annually, with another 93,600 tons used to produce a medicinal tonic called gaesoju (ęśěŚěŁĽ).[92] As of 2007, the dogs were no longer being beaten to death as they had been in past times.

Dog meat is often consumed during the summer months and is either roasted or prepared in soups or stews. The most popular of these soups is bosintang and gaejang-guk, a spicy stew meant to balance the body’s heat during the summer months. This is thought to ensure good health by balancing one’s “ki” or vital energy of the body. A 19th century version of gaejang-guk explains the preparation of the dish by boiling dog meat with vegetables such as green onions and chili pepper powder. Variations of the dish contain chicken and bamboo shoots.[93]

North Korea

In North Korea (officially the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea), in early 2010, the government included dog meat in its new list of one hundred fixed prices, setting a fixed price of 500 won per kilogram.[94]

New Zealand

Dog meat is rarely eaten in New Zealand but has been said to be becoming more popular as it is not illegal as long as the dog is humanely killed.

A Tongan man living in New Zealand caused public outrage when he was caught cooking his pet dog in his backyard; this led to calls for change in the law.[95]

Philippines

In the capital city of Manila, Metro Manila Commission Ordinance 82-05 specifically prohibits the killing and selling of dogs for food.[96] More generally, the Philippine Animal Welfare Act 1998[97] prohibits the killing of any animal other than cattle, pigs, goats, sheep, poultry, rabbits, carabaos, horses, deer and crocodiles, with exemptions for religious, cultural, research, public safety or animal health reasons. Nevertheless, as is reported from time to time in Philippine newspapers, the eating of dog meat is not uncommon in the Philippines.[98]

The Province of Benguet specifically allows cultural use of dog meat by indigenous people and acknowledges this might lead to limited commercial use.[99]

Asocena is a dish primarily consisting of dog meat originating from the Philippines.

Polynesia

Dogs were historically eaten in Tahiti and other islands of Polynesia, including Hawaii[100][101] at the time of first European contact. James Cook, when first visiting Tahiti in 1769, recorded in his journal, “few were there of us but what allow’d that a South Sea Dog was next to an English Lamb, one thing in their favour is that they live entirely upon Vegetables”.[102] Calwin Schwabe reported in 1979 that dog was widely eaten in Hawaii and considered to be of higher quality than pork or chicken. When Hawaiians first encountered early British and American explorers, they were at a loss to explain the visitors’ attitudes about dog meat. The Hawaiians raised both dogs and pigs as pets and for food. They could not understand why their British and American visitors only found the pig suitable for consumption.[2] This practice seems to have died out, along with the native Hawaiian breed of dog, the unique Hawaiian Poi Dog, which was primarily used for this purpose.[103] The consumption of domestic dog meat is still commonplace in the Kingdom of Tonga, and has also been noted in expatriate Tongan communities in New Zealand, Australia, and the United States.[104]

Thailand

Unlike other countries where dog meat consumption has been shown to have historical precedents, Thailand does not have a mainstream culture of dog eating. However, in recent years, the consumption of dog meat in certain areas of the country, especially in certain northeastern provinces like Sakon Nakhon and Nakhon Phanom (specifically Sakon Nakhon province’s Tha Rae sub-district, which has been identified as the main center for the country’s illegal, albeit lucrative, dog meat trade), have attracted widespread attention from the Thai population and local news media. This has led a large group of Thai citizens to become increasingly vocal against the consumption of dog meat and the selling of dogs to neighbouring Mekong countries including Laos, Vietnam and China. According to news reports, a considerable number of these dogs continue to be stolen from people’s homes by illegal carriers. This was especially the case following the 2011 Thailand Floods. Dubbed as the country’s ‘Trade of Shame’, Thai netizens, in particular, have now formed several (informal) animal welfare and rescue groups in an attempt to stop this illegal trade, with the collective attitude being that ‘Dogs are not food’. Established not-for-profit animal charity organizations like the Soi Dog Foundation have also been active in raising awareness and working in conjunction with local Thai authorities to rehabilitate and relocate dogs rescued from trucks attempting to transport live dogs across the border to nearby countries. Significantly, this issue has strengthened the nation’s animal rights movement, which continues to call on the Thai government to adopt a stricter and more comprehensive animal rights law to prevent the maltreatment of pets and cruelty against all animals.[105][106][107][108][109]

Timor Leste

Dog meat is a delicacy popular in East Timor.[110]

Uzbekistan

Although not commonly eaten, dog meat is sometimes used in Uzbekistan in the belief that it has medicinal properties.[111]

Vietnam

Dog meat in Hanoi

Dog meat is consumed more commonly in the northern part of Vietnam than in the south, and can be found in special restaurants which specifically serve this type of meat. Dog meat is believed to bring good fortune in Vietnam.[112] It is seen as being comparable in consumption to chicken or pork.[112] In any urban areas, there are always sections which house a lot of dog-meat restaurants. For example, on Nhat Tan Street, Tây Hồ District, Hanoi, many restaurants serve dog meat. Groups of customers, usually male, seated on mats, will spend their evenings sharing plates of dog meat and drinking alcohol since dog meat is believed to raise the libido in men.[112] The consumption of dog meat can be part of a ritual usually occurring toward the end of the lunar month for reasons of astrology and luck. Restaurants which mainly exist to serve dog meat may only open for the last half of the lunar month.[112] The Associated Press reported in October 2009 that a soaring economy has led to the booming of dog restaurants in Hanoi, and that this has led to a proliferation of dognappers. Reportedly, a 20 kilograms (44lb) dog can sell for more than $100—roughly the monthly salary of an average Vietnamese worker.[113]

In 2009, dog meat was found to be a main carrier of the Vibrio cholerae bacterium, which caused the summer epidemic of cholera in northern Vietnam.[114][115]

Europe

Belgium

A few meat shops sold dog meat during the German occupation of Belgium in World War I, when food was extremely scarce.[116] According to The New York Times, in the 19th century the Council of the Veterinary School of Belgium occasionally recommended dog meat for human consumption after being properly inspected.[117]

France

Grande Boucherie Canine, Paris, 1910

Although consumption of dog meat is not common in France, and is now considered taboo, dog meat has been consumed in the past. The earliest evidence of dog consumption in France was found at Gaulish archaeological sites, where butchered dog bones were discovered.[118] Similar findings, corresponding to that time or earlier periods, have also been recorded through Europe. French news sources from the late 19th century carried stories reporting lines of people buying dog meat, which was described as being “beautiful and light.”[119] During the Siege of Paris (1870–1871), there were lines at butcher’s shops of people waiting to purchase dog meat. Dog meat was also reported as being sold by some butchers in Paris, 1910.[120][121]

Germany

Dog meat has been eaten in every major German crisis at least since the time of Frederick the Great, and is commonly referred to as “blockade mutton”.[7] In the early 20th century, high meat prices led to widespread consumption of horse and dog meat in Germany.[122][123][124]

The consumption of dog meat continued in the 1920s.[125][126] In 1937, a meat inspection law targeted against trichinella was introduced for pigs, dogs, boars, foxes, badgers, and other carnivores.[127] Dog meat has been prohibited in Germany since 1986.[128]

Saxony

In the latter part of World War I, dog meat was being eaten in Saxony by the poorer classes because of famine conditions.[129]

The Netherlands

During severe meat shortages coinciding with the German invasion in 1940, sausages found to have been made of dog meat were confiscated by authorities in the Netherlands.[130]

Poland

While the meat is not eaten, in some rural areas of Poland, dog fat can be made into lard, which by tradition is believed to have medicinal properties—being good for the lungs, for instance. It is worth noting that the consumption of such meat is considered taboo in Polish culture.[131] In 2009, a scandal erupted when a farm near Częstochowa was discovered rearing dogs to be rendered down into lard.[131]

Switzerland

Swiss recipes for dog meat include gedĂrrtes Hundefleisch served as paper-thin slices, as well as smoked dog ham, Hundeschinken, which is prepared by salting and drying raw dog meat.[132]

According to the 21 November 1996 edition of the Rheintaler Bote, a Swiss newspaper covering the Rhine Valley area, the rural Swiss cantons of Appenzell and St. Gallen are known to have had a tradition of eating dogs, curing dog meat into jerky and sausages, as well as using the lard for medicinal purposes. Dog sausage and smoked dog jerky remains a staple in the Swiss cantons of St. Gallen and Appenzell, where one farmer was quoted in a regional weekly newspaper as saying that “meat from dogs is the healthiest of all. It has shorter fibres than cow meat, has no hormones like veal, no antibiotics like pork.”[133]

A few years earlier, a news report on RTL Television on the two cantons set off a wave of protests from European animal welfare activists and other concerned citizens. A 7,000-name petition was filed to the commissions of the cantons, who rejected it, saying it was not the state’s right to monitor the eating habits of its citizens.

The production of food from dog meat for commercial purposes, however, is illegal in Switzerland.[134]

Hell on Earth- Thailand’s Dog Meat Trade

Published on 19 Aug 2012

Throughout Asia the dog meat trade is flourishing. In particular the town of Tha Rae in Sakon Nakhorn, north east Thailand has become a center for the export of dogs through Laos and into Vietnam. Dogs are collected in exchanged for a bucket in villages throughout Thailand and then brought to Ta Rae. In Ta Rae the dogs are separated into grades. The best grade are shipped to Vietnam the rest are slaughtered and eaten locally. Thousands of dogs are slaughtered and shipped across the Mae Kong river every month. The business is worth almost as much as the drug trade and this business is legal because Thailand has no animal protection laws for the welfare of domestic animals. We are creating a Hell on Earth for mans best friend.
Please be aware that this video is produced by Thai people who care and want to make a difference in their country. The majority of Thai people are shocked that this practice is allowed to continue. Most of the large scale dog meat trade in Thailand is run by Vietnamese mafia. There have been many demonstrations at the parliament in Bangkok by Thai people to call for an animal cruelty law to be passed. A draft law has even been handed over to the opposition.

Every day over 1,000 dogs are inhumanely transported from Thailand to neighbouring countries where they are butchered by cruel and inhumane methods. However, the Soi Dog Foundation and the Thai government are actively working to end this inhumane practice.

Strong Earthquake Jolts Central Taiwan

SKY NEWS 9:10am UK (BST) (0810z GMT/UTC), Sunday 02 June 2013

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake has struck the island of Taiwan, killing two people and shaking buildings in the capital Taipei, news reports said.

The quake in central Taiwan injured more than 20 people, caused some damage and sent residents running into the streets.

In Mountain Ali in the southern part of the island, a man was killed by a rockslide while driving a car on a mountain road, the Taiwan Fire Agency said in a statement.

TV footage showed landslides, stirring clouds of yellow dust, on other mountains in the area.

Another man was killed by a falling rock when he was working at a farm in Chushan, near the epicentre.

The tremor struck about 35 kilometres (22 miles) east of Nantou County at a depth of 10 kilometres (6 miles).

The US Geological Survey had originally put the magnitude at 6.6 but later downgraded it.

Taiwan

Workers removed fallen rocks and repaired a damaged mountain road in Nantou, allowing more than 100 stranded tourists to pass.

Taiwan television said the quake had triggered a gas explosion in the centre of the island but it gave no details.

Shoppers screamed and ran out of a 12-storey department store that shook violently for nearly a minute, TV stations reported from the central city of Taichung, near the epicentre.

Six high-speed trains halted but services resumed after no damage was found to the line.

The quake also rattled the islands capital of Taipei, about 150 miles (250 kilometres) north of the epicentre.

The house was shaking but nothing fell, said one resident of the city.

Taiwan sits near the so-called ring of fire region of seismic activity around the Pacific Ocean, and is frequently rattled by quakes.

A magnitude-7.6 earthquake in central Taiwan in 1999 killed more than 2,300 people.

Taiwan’s earthquake authorities measured it at 6.3 magnitude.

As of 6:16 p.m., four smaller-scale aftershocks had been monitored in Nantou, the island’s meteorological authorities said.

So far, there have been no reports of deaths or injuries among visitors from the mainland, said Man Hongwei, head of the Taipei office of the Association for Tourism Exchange Across the Taiwan Straits.

Cable-car services in Nantou’s Riyuetan (Sun Moon Lake) scenic spot have been halted. But high-speed trains in Taiwan have all restored operations and electricity has been resumed in affected areas, local authorities said.

A 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit Nantou on March 27 this year.

The recent two quakes correlate “a little bit” with a massive earthquake that shook the island nearly 14 years ago, said Lu Pei-ling, an official with the sub-center of Taiwan’s earthquake forecasting center.

The 7.3-magnitude quake on Sept. 21, 1999 was the strongest to hit Taiwan in 100 years and left more than 2,000 people dead.

Lu said there is still a possibility that more quakes will occur in this area in the future.”

The quake struck 24 miles southeast of the city of Tai-chung at a depth of nine miles, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The agency initially said it was 6.6 magnitude but later downgraded it slightly.

Taiwan television said the quake triggered a gas explosion in the centre of the island but it gave no details. There were no reports of any casualties.

The quake also rattled the islands capital of Taipei.

The house was shaking but nothing fell, said one resident of the city.

An earthquake of such a magnitude can cause severe damage.

The island sits near the so-called ring of fire region of seismic activity around the Pacific Ocean.

Syria conflict: Red Cross ‘alarmed’ over Qusair

Syrian doctor describes the worsening humanitarian situation in Qusair

The Red Cross has expressed alarm over the situation in the besieged Syrian town of Qusair, and has appealed for immediate access to deliver aid.

Thousands of civilians are believed to be trapped in the town, which lies close to the border with Lebanon.

The battle for control between pro-government forces and rebel fighters has made medical supplies, food and water scarce, the Red Cross says.

Russia has also reportedly blocked a UN “declaration of alarm” on Qusair.

The draft Security Council declaration, which was circulated by Britain, voiced “grave concern about the situation in Qusair, and in particular the impact on civilians of the ongoing fighting”.

Council statements such as these must be agreed unanimously.

However, a diplomat said Russia blocked the draft text because the UN had failed to speak out when Qusair was seized by rebels.

Trapped civilians

An opposition activist told the BBC on Friday that around 30,000 civilians were still in the town.

Rebel-held parts of Qusair are effectively blockaded by government forces and Hezbollah fighters.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said in a statement it was “alarmed” by reports of civilians trapped in Qusair and was prepared to enter the town immediately to deliver aid.

Strategic town of Qusair

  • Estimated population of 30,000 people
  • Up to 10,000 people have fled to neighbouring towns and 1,500 people are wounded, the UN says
  • Some 23 villages and 12 farms west of Qusair are reportedly inhabited by Lebanese Shia
  • Near the main route from Damascus to port of Tartous, a gateway to the heartland of President Assad’s Alawite sect

“Civilians and the wounded are at risk of paying an even heavier price as the fighting continues,” said the head of the ICRC’s operations in the region, Robert Mardini.

The UN secretary general’s office also appealed to the warring parties to allow residents to flee.

The BBC’s Imogen Foulkes in Geneva says the fact that both the UN and ICRC have issued urgent statements at the same time is an indication of how desperate they believe the situation has become.

Fighting in Qusair intensified last month with militants from Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Lebanese group, joining forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

Reinforcements from the rebel Free Syrian Army are reported to have managed to break through from the north-east to support the embattled rebel fighters.

Some Lebanese Sunnis have also crossed into Syria to fight alongside the rebels, who are drawn largely from Syria’s majority Sunni community.

On Saturday, influential Muslim cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi called on Sunni Muslims from around the Middle East to join the battle against President Assad.

He told a rally in Doha that Iran and the Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah, Mr Assad’s main allies, wanted to exterminate Sunnis.

Activists from the UK-based pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights say rebels in Qusair are bracing themselves for another assault.

Fifteen Syrian army tanks have massed north of the town, says Rami Abdel Rahman, the observatory’s director.

“Regime forces are reinforcing the sites that they have north of the city, including Dabaa airport and Jawadiya,” he said.

Qusair, which lies 10 km from the Lebanese border, is considered a key logistical hub and supply route for weapons smuggled into Syria.

The town is also located near the main road connecting the city of Homs to the Syrian capital Damascus.

A Rare Glimpse Into Syrias Besieged Qusair

A screen grab of a Qusair video report provided by activist Rifaie Tammas

Supported by more than 4,000 Shia Hezbollah fighters from Lebanon, the Syrian Arab Army this week sealed off the rebel-held town of Qusair, a strategic crossroads for supplies about 15 kilometers from the border with Lebanon.

Early in the week Syrian government forces reportedly reclaimed nearby Dabaa air base. Several hundred members of the rebel Tawhid Brigade from Aleppo allegedly broke through a line of government forces on Friday to assist rebels defending the town. Some outside analysts predict, however, the regime of President Bashar al-Assad will re-take the town, trying to tip the balance of a stalemated two-year rebellion just weeks prior to proposed Geneva peace negotiations.

Known previously to the Middle East Voices Syria Witness project only as Sami, a former English teacher turned anti-Assad activist spoke to us via Skype, having recently decided to start using his real name, Rifaie Tammas.

Earlier this week, Tammas sent Middle East Voices a link to the following YouTube video through which he as a stand-up reporter attempted to demonstrate that Qusair at that point was neither in the hands of Syrian government forces nor Hezbollah fighters (the video record date and actual location cannot be independently confirmed).

Tammas reporting in English from Qusair (video upload date Monday, May 27, 2013)

(Video credit: Rifaie Tammas)

In a Skype interview on Wednesday (an excerpted version is featured at the sound file below), Tammas described Qusair as a ghost town being defended by a few units of armed rebels against widespread and random government shelling as well as the advances of well-armed and battle-seasoned Hezbollah fighters sent from Lebanon to aid the Assad forces.

His recorded narrative, punctuated by the thunder of bombs and rockets, takes on a personal tone as Tammas described how family and friends have taken cover from the government shelling in basements of abandoned homes, and that many other Qusair residents have escaped to open farm fields outside the town.

Most of the Free Syria Army is on the front lines. As for civilians, most of them are trapped inside underground shelters, said he.

Tammas talked about the deaths of many friends and family in the last two years, and how he copes with those losses.

I just cant believe how many I have lost Every now and then I see a picture of them posted on FaceBook, that they were martyred (a common term used by Syrians for those killed in fighting ed.)

He was resentful that Lebanese militants would descend on Qusair which had housed and fed these fighters as brothers six years earlier in Hezbollahs conflict with Israeli forces.

We treated them like brothers and sisters, like family and now they come to you, they come to kill you.

Tammas was surprised that the Lebanese were so much more disciplined than Syrian troops, who he called cowards.

The regime soldiers, the militias, when you destroyed their tanks, they would run away, you chase them now, you destroy a tank, the Hezbollah still comes.

On the day of the interview, Tammas reported that one of his uncle had just died in the shelling of nearby residences. On the following day, he sent a message that his own father, a staunch anti-Assad Syrian who was hiding in a basement just a 10-minute walk from his own shelter, had been killed by another government rocket.

Singing off with his real name, Tammar said, May Allah rest his soul in peace. – http://middleeastvoices.voanews.com

DWP Announces Jobless to be ‘Targeted By a Hit Squad’ – Not Satire

Scriptonite Daily

DWP1

A press release issued by the Department of Work and Pensions this afternoon outlines tough new sanctions on the unemployed, using inflammatory language.  The press release states that the long term unemployed will be ‘targeted by a hit squad’ of ‘specialists’ where they will either find work or lose their access to benefits.

Workfare Plus

 DWP2

The Government has a whole host of programmes purportedly in place to support the jobless back into paid employment.  Workfare refers to all of the programmes which are mandatory, long term and paid less than minimum wage.

Earlier this year, as all but one of the WorkFare schemes were found to compel a person’s labour and deemed illegal by the Court of Appeal at the Royal Courts of Justice.  The response of Mark Hoban, Minister for Employment, was that the regulations would simply be redrafted, the work programmes continued and not a…

US: Mum, child among 5 killed in new storms and tornadoes in Oklahoma. At least 71 injured – 010613 1145z

 

Tornadoes rolled in from the prairie and slammed Oklahoma City and its suburbs, trapping people in their vehicles as a storm swept down an interstate highway while commuters tried to beat it home.(Photo: breakingnews.ie)

Five people were killed, including a mother and baby killed near Union City, Oklahoma.

Another person died at El Reno, the first city struck by the storm, said Amy Elliott, a spokeswoman for the state medical examiner.

Circumstances involving the other two deaths weren’t immediately known, Elliott said.

About 50 (G: Now at least 71) people were hurt, five critically, hospital officials said. Meteorologists had warned about particularly nasty weather Friday but said the storm’s fury didn’t match that of a deadly twister that struck suburban Moore last week.

Violent weather also moved through the St. Louis area, ripping part of the roof off a suburban casino. Friday’s broad storm in Oklahoma hit during the evening rush hour and stuck around, causing havoc on Interstate 40, a major artery connecting suburbs east and west of the city, and dropping so much rain on the area that streets were flooded to a depth of 4 feet.

To the south, a severe storm with winds approaching 80 mph rolled into Moore, where a top-of-the-scale EF5 tornado killed 24 on May 20. Rick Smith, the warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service at Norman, said that while the storm packed a powerful punch, it wasn’t as strong as the Moore tornado.

New Oklahoma tornadoes ‘kill five’

BBC

Journalist Brad Gibson: “Tornadoes are these beasts that come out of nowhere”

Related Stories

A new series of tornadoes has swept through the US state of Oklahoma, killing at least five people, including a mother and child, officials say.

The tornadoes struck near the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore, where 24 people were killed by a violent tornado nearly two weeks ago.

The latest storm struck during Friday’s evening rush hour, trapping many people in cars and causing traffic chaos.

More than 60,000 homes lost power and heavy rain has caused severe flooding.

Many streets were inundated with up to 4ft (1.2 m) of water.

Storms also swept through Missouri, where Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency.

The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Centre said the severe weather was shifting eastward on Saturday, towards Ohio and the Mississippi River Valleys.

‘Power flashes’

A police spokeswoman said the mother and child who died were in their car on a major highway – Interstate 40 – near Oklahoma City.

Car damaged on Interstate 40, 31 May Many vehicles were overturned on Interstate 40

Dozens of lorries were overturned on the highway.

Amy Elliott, a spokeswoman for Oklahoma’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, said that two of the deaths occurred in Union City and one was in El Reno, west of Oklahoma City.

Dozens of people have been hurt, with five of them in a critical condition.

Among those who took to the roads to flee the storm was 30-year-old Brandi Vanalphen.

“What got me scared was being stuck in traffic with sirens going off,” she told Reuters.

“I started seeing power flashes to the north… I started driving on the shoulder. People started driving over the grass.”

Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett said: “For reasons that are not clear to me, more people took to the roads, more than we expected. Everyone acted differently in this storm, and as a result, it created an extremely dangerous situation.

“I think we are still a little shaken by what happened in Moore. We are still burying children and victims, so our emotions are still strong,” he added.

Meteorologists said the tornadoes were less severe than the one that struck Moore two weeks ago.

That tornado – ranked as an EF5, the most powerful – destroyed some 1,200 homes. About 33,000 people were affected and the damage has been estimated at $2bn (£1.32bn).

Oklahoma is in part of the US Midwest known as Tornado Alley. Some 1,200 tornadoes strike each year, though most are relatively small.
