WATCHES AND WARNINGS
——————–
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

 

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
——————————
At 200 AM PDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Eugene was located
near latitude 18.1 North, longitude 116.5 West. Eugene is moving
toward the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this general motion
is expected to continue through Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 100 mph (155 km/h)
with higher gusts. Additional weakening is forecast during the
next 48 hours as Eugene moves over colder water. Eugene is expected
to weaken to a tropical storm by tonight.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the
center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105
miles (165 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 976 mb (28.82 inches).

 

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
———————-
SURF: Swells generated by Eugene are affecting portions of the west
coast of the Baja California peninsula and will spread northward to
portions of southern California by tonight and Tuesday. These
swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.

West Coast Tsunami Threat Being Assessed After 8.0 Alaska Earthquake

Town of , evacuates its 150 residents to shelter after warning, official says.

Tsunami warning for Alaska ends after quake. Wave about 7″ high. Ppl from Adak town gathered on nearby hill during warning – @CBCAlerts 2312utc

CBS San Francisco

(CBS SF) — The threat of a tsunami in California and the west coast was still being assessed Monday afternoon following an 8.0 earthquake off Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, according to officials.

The state Office of Emergency Services said on its Twitter feed that there was no warning or alert for the U.S. West Coast from the Alaska quake.

The National Tsunami Warning Center said coastal areas of Alaska were under a tsunami warning but that the tsunami threat for the Pacific Coast of the U.S. and Canada was still being evaluated.

Squirrels infected with plague close California campground

News Reports

 

Plague-infected squirrel shuts Los Angeles park

BBC

California Ground Squirrel (Otospermophilus beecheyi)

Related Stories

Parts of a national forest in California have been evacuated and closed down after a squirrel was found to be infected with the plague.

Los Angeles officials say visitors were ordered to leave the Angeles National Forest as a precaution after the rodent was trapped in a routine check.

They said no people in the area were believed to have been infected with the disease, known as the Black Death.

The plague killed as many as 25 million Europeans during the Middle Ages.

Analysis

It sounds like a screenplay for a Hollywood B-movie: bubonic plague-infected squirrels descend on Los Angeles. But despite the excitement among Angelenos on social media about the “Black Death” being found at a California campsite, health officials say this is not a problem for urban squirrels.

City conditions do not lend themselves to having fleas co-existing in large numbers as they would in a forested area, they say. Even in this forest area where the squirrel was found on Thursday, only five “plague-positive” squirrels have turned up in the last 20 years or so. This particular squirrel is dead – tests are being conducted to determine if it died of natural causes or the plague itself.

It is a bacterial infection which can be transmitted to humans through the bites of infected fleas.

If not treated with antibiotics, it is usually deadly.

There have been only four cases of human plague in Los Angeles County since 1984, none of which were fatal, according to officials.

Further testing of squirrels in the region will be carried out before the campgrounds are re-opened to the public.

Jonathan Fielding, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, told the BBC that agriculture workers would dust squirrel burrows in order to reduce the flea population.

He said that while the area was closed to camping, people would still be able to hike through.

He advised that anyone who wished to do so should use insect repellent and ensure that any pets they bring have a flea collar.

From wikipedia.org…..

Bubonic plague

is a zoonotic disease, circulating mainly in fleas[1] on small rodents and is one of three types of bacterial infections caused by Yersinia pestis (formerly known as Pasteurella pestis), which belongs to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Without treatment, the bubonic plague kills about two thirds of infected humans within 4 days.

The term bubonic plague is derived from the Greek word βουβών, meaning “groin.” Swollen lymph nodes (buboes) especially occur in the armpit and groin in persons suffering from bubonic plague. Bubonic plague was often used synonymously for plague, but it does in fact refer specifically to an infection that enters through the skin and travels through the lymphatics, as is often seen in flea-borne infections.

Bubonic plaguealong with the septicemic plague and the pneumonic plague, which are the two other manifestations of Y. pestisis commonly believed to be the cause of the Black Death that swept through Europe in the 14th century and killed an estimated 25 million people, or 3060% of the European population.[2] Because the plague killed so many of the working population, wages rose and some historians have seen this as a turning point in European economic development.[3][4]

Wrightwood, CA (KTLA) — Several campgrounds near Wrightwood were closed by health officials on Wednesday after a ground squirrel tested positive for plague.

The squirrel was trapped on July 16 during routine surveillance activities and later tested positive for plague, according to a new release from the L.A. County Department of Public Health.

Broken Blade, Twisted Arrow, and Pima Loops of the Table Mountain Campgrounds in the Angeles National Forest were officially closed at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

They were expected to remain closed for at least seven days, officials said.

Campers were notified about the closures by Forest Service officials.

Squirrel burrows in the area will be dusted for fleas, and further testing will be done before the area is re-opened to the public, officials said.

“Plague is a bacterial infection that can be transmitted to humans through the bites of infected fleas, which is why we close affected campgrounds…

Driver, 70, In Custody After Striking, Dragging Kid In Stroller For Quarter Of A Mile

CBS Los Angeles

[worldnow id=9129159 width=420 height=315 type=video]

PANORAMA CITY (CBSLA.com) — A 70-year-old driver was arrested Wednesday night after striking a woman and her little girl in a stroller in a crosswalk –and driving away with the toddler underneath the vehicle—in Panorama City.

The mother was pushing her youngster in a pink car-shaped stroller near the corner of Van Nuys Boulevard and Chase Street at 8:40 p.m. when the reported unlicensed driver hit them and then kept going.

The suspect drove with the child under the front of his car for a quarter of a mile until he was chased down by citizens.

The child was taken to the hospital in critical condition. She was later upgraded to stable.

The mother is in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.

I convinced him it would be a bad idea to go into his neighbor’s back yard at midnight, trying to capture his chicken.  He claimed it was his livelihood, but I’m figuring it’s not some remarkable stud animal.  I told him I’d send a deputy to speak to him about his options (I was glad I wouldn’t be the one actually dispatching the call….  “see the man about a chicken”), but he declined, as he said he’d been drinking a fair amount, and didn’t want to speak to a cop.

A few minutes later, the neighbor calls 9-1-1, reporting a strange man beating on his front door, looking for a chicken!

US: Justin Bieber Will Not Be Charged in Alleged Photog Battery – Updated 22 Nov 2012 1645z

28 May 2012: CALABASAS, California (AP) – Justin Bieber is wanted for questioning by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigators after a photographer complained of being roughed up by the pop star at a shopping centre.

WANTED: JUSTIN BIEBER
(Click image to visit tvguide.com)

Justin Bieber is wanted for questioning after a paparazzo claimed Bieber assaulted him on Sunday, TMZ.com reports.

The photographer claims a physical altercation ensued after he tried to take Bieber’s photo in Calabasas, Calif. When cops arrived, Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez had already left the scene. After complaining of pain in his upper torso, the photog was transported to the hospital, where he filed a police report.

Witnesses at the scene told police the photographer was blocking Bieber’s car. Police officers, who are investigating the claim as a misdemeanor battery, are now trying to track down Bieber, Gomez and any other witnesses to get both sides of the story.

TMZ.com said that Justin was in Calabasas, where he lives, just after noon Sunday at a mall called The Commons.� A paparazzo attempted to take Justin’s picture and, according to law enforcement, some sort of physical altercation erupted between Justin and the camera guy.

The photog called 911, and when cops arrived Justin and GF Selena Gomez had already split.

Amongst the articles on this story that are doing the rounds on the internet is this, from http://laist.com :

The accuser is a photographer–well, okay, a paparazzo–who told deputies when he tried to take photos of the famous couple, Bieber physically battered him.

Bieber and Gomez left before the LASD showed up, though.

The photog insisted on filing a criminal report, to which the LASD obliged. He said he was in pain and needed medical help. “The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was treated and later released,” add the LASD.

It could be, though, that the idea to file came as a suggestion from someone at the scene. TMZ has some follow-up from the melee at the mall:

We’re told several witnesses at the scene say after the altercation, a lawyer walked up to the photog and said he could get a lot of money out of the incident and advised the dude to call for an ambulance and file a police report.Additionally, the paparazzo’s role as pure “victim” may have been just at eensy weensy bit exaggerated, according to TMZ’s sources:

Witnesses also say the photog had been blocking Justin’s car as the singer was trying to leave. Justin got out of the car and asked the guy to move away but he wouldn’t, and a scuffle ensued.Still, the LASD are taking this seriously:

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Malibu-Lost Hills Station detectives are investigating the incident. Any with information about this incident is urged, contact detctives at (818-878-1808). Or if you wish to remain Anonymous, call �LA Crime Stoppers� by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org

To be fair to Justin, his side of the story has not emerged yet, and he is, of course, innocent until proven guilty

31 May 2012 Update: So where is Justin?

“The latest reports tell that the “Baby” singer could face criminal prosecution for a misdemeanor battery after allegedly getting into a scuffle with a shutterbug on his way out of the movie theaters with girlfriend Selena Gomez in Los Angeles on Sunday.

According to TMZ, The Los Angeles Police Department have turned the case over to the Los Angeles County District Attorney�s office, which is a typical scenario for high-profile cases.

Although a spokesperson for the D.A.’s office tells Gossip Cop prosecutors have yet to act, prosecutors are referring to the case as a criminal prosecution.

Following the incident the 19-year-old tweeted, “gonna focus on the important stuff. the music.”

Authorities have requested to talk to Bieber about the altercation but he jetted off to Norway and it seems he’ll be across the pond for a little while.

Justin tweeted yesterday, “ok. going to board. OFF TO EUROPE! PHASE 1 of operation secret concerts! lol. OSLO first stop (G: Note link below). See u soon….and…when i land #DieInYourArms and #BOYFRIEND will be out!! Countdown and then #BIEBERBLAST !!!! thanks! see u soon. much love. #BELIEVE”.”� – celebrity-gossip.net 29 May 2012

Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen booed at sports final

BBC Newsbeat Page last updated at 15:57 GMT, Monday, 26 November 2012

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber has been booed at a Canadian football final in Toronto.

“The star was jeered along with fellow Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen at half-time as the pair were about to perform for the crowd.

They were also booed as the stadium announcer introduced the pair and it continued as Justin Bieber sang a medley of his hits, which included Boyfriend and Beauty and a Beat.

“Thank you so much Canada,” Justin Bieber told the crowd. “I love you.”

The Grey Cup is the championship game of the Canadian Football League (CFL), a form of gridiron closely related to American football.

Carly Rae Jepsen

Earlier in the week, 18-year-old Justin Bieber was presented with a diamond jubilee medal by Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

He was criticised by some Canadian football fans after wearing overalls, unbuttoned on one shoulder, a white T-shirt and a backwards baseball cap.

Stephen Harper wrote on Twitter: “In fairness to [Bieber], I told him I would be wearing my overalls too.”

Former Grey Cup half-time performers have included guitar bands such as Nickelback and Lenny Kravitz.

Carly Rae Jepsen, 27, received a mixed reaction to start with but managed to win the crowd over during a medley of her latest single, This Kiss, and her worldwide hit Call Me Maybe.”

Search & Rescue Dog Needs Donations For Cancer Treatment

WCCO | CBS Minnesota

[worldnow id=7821108 width=450 height=375 type=video]

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Gage is a search and rescue dog. His job is finding missing people. But now Gage needs to be rescued from cancer and he’s counting on lots of people for help.

Gage and his owner, veterinarian Sarah Garfunkel, also spent a year in Iraq. He’s been trained as a search dog from the age of six months.

“What he has is what’s called a T-cell lymphoma. Lymphoma in dogs is very treatable with chemotherapy, and the chances for several years of remission is actually decent,” said veterinarian Jennifer Bouthilet.

But the treatment for Gage will cost a lot. So, his organization, K9 Emergency Response Teams has organized a chip-in page on Facebook. Gage is only 5 years old.

“That’s why we’re so urgently wanting to treat him, because he’s a very, very talented dog and should have a lot of years of…

Justin Bieber Concert a knock-out: At least 49 injured in stampede in Oslo; Singer knocked-out in Paris – Updated 4 June 2012

“Oslos governing mayor has called for a full investigation after dozens of teenage girls sustained minor injuries at a free Justin Bieber concert in the city centre on Wednesday evening, while the city’s mayor hid behind a tree to avoid a stampede.

The head of the citys government, Stian Berger Rsland, said he was terrified of the risk for serious injuries as a crowd made up mostly of young girls thronged outside the opera house to watch the 18-year-old Canadian superstar perform.

At one point earlier in the day, Mayor Fabian Stang was forced to take shelter behind a tree to avoid being crushed by hordes of stampeding girls.

I have already called on the Emergency Planning Agency to examine the entire event from the planning stage to its implementation. We have to find out what went wrong and why it happened.

Fortunately, no one was seriously injured when thousands of frantic Justin Bieber fans arrived at the Opera House to watch Justin Bieber perform. Ola Krokan at the Oslo police told news agency NTB that 49 girls had received minor injuries while 14 were taken by ambulance to the emergency services, none of them with serious injuries.” – thelocal.no

“norway yesterday. secret show ended up not being so secret. haha” – Justin Bieber

According to nypost.com, citing the Norwegian paper Aftenposten, more than 88 received medical attention in a stampede to hear the “Boyfriend” singer give a free concert, his first public performance in nearly a year.

When authorities threatened to cancel the gig, which was being filmed for the NBC special Justin Bieber: All Around the World, Bieber appealed to his fans over Twitter.

@justinbieber: “NORWAY – please listen to the police. I dont want anyone getting hurt. I want everything to go to plan but your safety must come first…

…here r the details…at 920 2nite Im going to do a free show 4 u the fans at the Opera House here in Oslo…

…the show is part of my #AroundTheWorld TV special and I will be doing 6 songs, 4 new, 2 old before i leave. BUT….

…for the show to happen u must all listen to the police. we are all concerned for your safety and i want what is best for u. please listen

and tonight we will have some fun. love you and im excited to see you all. NORWAY…THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME! #BELIEVE

and NORWAY…u are awesome! #BEASTMODE”

MTV said that the “Boyfriend” singer’s words of caution apparently tamed fans enough, and police allowed the show to proceed. However, officials demanded Bieber push the start time back by half an hour so scene security would not deteriorate further.

“Bieber took the stage 30 minutes early, to avoid a state of emergency. He sang five songs, including his hit “Baby” and two new tracks off his upcoming album “Believe.” As he performed, many fans took to the river in boats, holding up signs of adoration for Bieber.

Despite the fans on the ground needing medical attention for everything from injuries to dehydration, the 18-year-old singer appeared to have a blast on stage.

“Missed the stage. That was fun,” Bieber later tweeted. “#BELIEVEtour is gonna be epic.” ” – nypost.com

Justin is now in Paris for another ‘secret show’.

Meanwhile the authorities in California will just have to wait for him to return, before they can question him about an alleged altercation with a paparazzo in his home town of Calabasas - More about that, here

A short time ago it emerged that Justin has had another altercation, this time with a wall of glass during his concert in Paris.

TMZ.com have just spoken with Justin, who said he was performing on stage, and in between songs he walked backstage and hit the glass. He says he was disoriented, but went back on stage and finished his set.

As he walked to his dressing room he passed out cold, for around 15 seconds. Doctors say Justin suffered a concussion but he’ll be ok.

Justin went on to complete the concert, afterward tweeting, ” gotta laugh at yourself sometimes.”

US: 1 dead, 4 missing after 4 crew from race yacht swept overboard, then boat sent onto rocks

“A powerful wave swept four crew members off a sailboat during a race near San Francisco, leaving one person dead and four others missing, the Coast Guard said early Sunday.

The eight-member crew aboard the 38-foot Low Speed Chase was participating in a yacht race from San Francisco Bay around the Farallon Islands on Saturday afternoon as their craft ran aground. Seas were running high at 10-12 feet when the Low Speed Chase was hit by a larger wave and the four were washed overboard, Coast Guard Petty Officer Levi Read said.

“They turned the boat around to go rescue those people and they got hit by another wave,” sending the boat onto rocks, he said.

A Mayday call reporting the accident went out at about 3 p.m. PDT. Coast Guard and National Guard helicopters and water craft rescued three crew members who were clinging to rocks, Read said. The body of the other crew member was pulled from the water.

A Coast Guard helicopter, a cutter and a smaller boat were searching the waters around the islands, 27 miles west of San Francisco, as well as shoreline areas early Sunday for the missing crew members. Dozens of boats were registered for the Full Crew Farallones Race, running from the St. Francis Yacht Club on San Francisco Bay to the islands and back, about 60 miles round trip, Read said.

Rescuers found the three crew members on or near the shore clinging to rocks, about 300 feet from where their vessel was breaking up because of the powerful waves, he said.

They were wearing life vests and cold weather gear — equipment that gave rescuers hope in the search for the missing. “There is the possibility that the other four were also in the same kind of gear,” Read said. He said he didn’t know if the four missing were the same crew members who were swept from the boat. The search was expected to continue through the night, as long as there was a chance there were survivors, the Coast Guard said.

The names of the eight crew members were not released, and there was no immediate word on the condition of the three survivors. The Yacht Racing Association of San Francisco Bay expressed sympathy for the dead crew member and hope for those missing. “We offer our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of the missing crew in hopes they are returned home safely,” the association said in a statement on its website.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the Low Speed Chase is based out of the San Francisco Yacht Club, located in Marin County’s Belvedere Cove. The manager of the club declined immediate comment.”
