Hurricane Dorian latest: 7 killed in Bahamas, 1 dead in NC as storm moves north

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Hurricane Dorian has killed at least seven in the Bahamas, as well as an elderly man in North Carolina, as the storm looms close to the Southeast coast.Dorian, now a Category 2, is churning parallel to northeast Florida and might make landfall as it inches closer to the Carolinas.Devastation in the BahamasDorian first slammed into the Bahamas on Sunday afternoon as a Category 5, the strongest Atlantic hurricane landfall on record.At least seven people were killed on the Abaco Islands in the northern Bahamas, where the storm made landfall.“We can expect more deaths to be recorded,” Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis told reporters Tuesday. “Our priority at this time is search, rescue and recovery.”The storm hovered over the archipelago’s northern islands for nearly two days, leveling dozens of buildings, flooding roads and submerging an airport.Theo Neilly, the Bahamas consul general to the United States, said the greatest need is for water, non-perishable food, generators, tents and tarp poles.“We’re receiving supplies and we’re looking for people who can assist with shipping,” Neilly told ABC News on Tuesday.The British Royal Navy was expected to deliver food to the hard-hit Abaco Islands Tuesday night, according to the Bahamian prime minister. The U.S. Department of State said it’s providing humanitarian assistance, and the U.S. Coast Guard said it’s rescued 61 people.‘You need to evacuate now’Dorian is now hovering just off the coast of Florida, pummeling the Sunshine State with rain, wind and intense storm surge, eroding the beach in Cape Canaveral.A hurricane warning is in effect for the entire South Carolina and North Carolina coastline, where a dangerous storm surge of up to 8 feet is expected. A tropical storm watch even extends into southern Virginia.One storm-related death already struck North Carolina. An 85-year-old man fell off a ladder while preparing his Columbus County home for Dorian, Gov. Roy Cooper said Wednesday.“Today is the day to finish preparing, and I urge everyone to do so with safety in mind,” Cooper said. “We will be ready and we will not underestimate the damage this storm can cause.”As Dorian loomed, evacuations were ordered from Florida’s east coast to North Carolina’s Outer Banks.Kevin McAleenan, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security, told Univision that undocumented immigrants should not “worry about immigration enforcement during the storm — worry about staying safe.”“There will be no routine immigration enforcement during this storm or in the immediate aftermath of this storm,” McAleenan said.Melbourne Beach, Fla., resident Nancy Whiting lives in an evacuation area, but she opted to ride out the storm in her home — the same as she did for Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and Hurricane Irma in 2017 — to address leaks right as they hit.“A lot of the neighbors stayed back. They tend to hunker down, just ride out the storm. They’ve been through a lot of these before,” Whiting told ABC News. “This is what happens in Florida you stay and protect your property and help our your neighbors.”But officials are urging those in evacuation zones to flee the coast immediately.“There is no more time for hesitation,” South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster tweeted Tuesday night. “If you are in an evacuation zone you need to evacuate now.”Although for some, evacuating isn’t an option. Frances Eason’s husband, David, is spending the hurricane in a Mt. Pleasant, S.C., hospital.“We went through [Hurricane] Hugo in 1989 and we went through Florence last October and several in between,” Frances Eason told ABC News. “We fared well through it all.”“I think we’re safe here,” she said.Dorian’s pathDorian is forecast to pass Savannah, Ga., overnight Wednesday into Thursday, bringing powerful 92 mph wind gusts.The storm will then come close to Charleston, S.C., Thursday morning.Authorities in Charleston are urging the residents who chose not to evacuate to stay off the roads; authorities say during a storm last year, 40 people were rescues from flooded cars.From Charleston, the storm will approach North Carolina’s coast. Dorian could possibly make landfall in Wilmington Thursday night or make landfall on the state’s barrier islands, the Outer Banks, early Friday morning as a Category 2 hurricane.Dorian is expected to head out to sea by Friday evening.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Australia: Final Fabricated Blocks Delivered for First Hobart Class AWD Australia: Final Fabricated Blocks Delivered for First Hobart Class AWD June 4, 2013 View post tag: Destroyer View post tag: class View post tag: Blocks View post tag: Australia View post tag: air View post tag: AWD View post tag: delivered View post tag: Warfare The final fabricated blocks for the first destroyer, Hobart, have just been delivered to the Air Warfare Destroyer Alliance in Adelaide following a week-long journey by sea from Newcastle.AWD Alliance CEO Rod Equid said the four blocks arrived in Adelaide from block sub-contractor, Forgacs Engineering. “This is a significant milestone for the AWD project as we will now have all of the blocks from our sub-contractors for the first destroyer, Hobart,” Mr Equid said. “The consolidation process for Hobart is progressing well with the rapidly growing ship structure continuing to take shape on the hardstand week by week.“Two of the four blocks in this delivery by Forgacs are located at the bow of the ship,” said Mr Equid. “The ship’s 5-inch naval gun will sit on top of one of the blocks, which will also house its ammunition.“The forward-most block will make up the forecastle of the ship and will hold the anchor, chain and winch machinery. The remaining blocks will be positioned at the aft of the ship and house the helicopter hangar and rudder controls.”The three Hobart Class destroyers are being built using a modular construction method across three shipyards in Australia and one in Spain. The ships are being consolidated at the South Australian Government’s Common User Facility at Techport, which is adjacent to lead shipbuilder ASC.When the three destroyers enter service with the Royal Australian Navy from 2016 they will represent a significant increase in capability.The ships will be equipped with the Aegis Weapon system, making them capable of assuming a leading command and control role within the Australian Defence Force as well as coalition forces.The AWD project is being delivered under an Alliance structure. The AWD Alliance is made up of the Defence Materiel Organisation representing the Australian Government, ASC as the lead shipbuilder and Raytheon Australia as the mission systems integrator.[mappress]Press Release, June 4, 2013; Image: AWD Alliancecenter_img View post tag: first View post tag: Hobart View post tag: Defence View post tag: Final View post tag: News by topic Industry news View post tag: Navy Share this article View post tag: Naval View post tag: Fabricatedlast_img read more

Despite Democratic Rejection, Reed Spokesman Says Problem Solvers COVID Package Still Alive

first_imgPhoto: piqsels / pxfuelWASHINGTON — While a new COVID-19 package proposed by Tom Reed and The Problem Solvers Caucus has been rejected by several key Democratic committee members, a Reed spokesman told WNYNews Now the package still has a life.The spokesman said late Wednesday morning there is still support and that the bipartisan package has created the momentum to get something done.He said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said lawmakers won’t leave Washington until a package is done, which he called a change in her previous stance.House leaders said the package, a bipartisan attempt to kick start negotiations, was rejected because it “leaves to many needs unmet”. Democrat Steny Hoyer said the caucus plan did not address helping the economy recover from the COVID-19 crisis.“We believe that getting to a compromise is absolutely essential,” Hoyer said Tuesday. “Getting to a compromise that does not deal with the problems, however, is not useful, because the longer you delay addressing many of the problems, the greater you weaken both the economy and the response to COVID-19.”Pelosi said the House will remain in session until lawmakers deliver a better relief package.The bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, 25 Democrats and 25 Republicans, unveiled its “March To Common Ground” framework to attempt to break the gridlock on the latest COVID-19 relief package and encourage negotiators to get back to the table.The 50-member bipartisan Caucus, led by Co-Chairs Reps. Josh Gottheimer and Reed, developed and came together in support of the framework after extensive listening to constituents and outreach to stakeholders over the past six weeks.The package addresses key areas of need, including COVID-19 testing, unemployment insurance, direct stimulus, worker and liability protection, small business and non-profit support, food security, schools and child care, housing, election support, and state and local aid.The framework is designed for a six month horizon and through the next inauguration, except for state and local funding which extends for a full year.Depending on the severity of the pandemic and if a successful vaccination program is adopted by March, 2021, a system of automatic “boosters” are designed to incrementally increase the amount of relief to individuals and families. Conversely, a system of “reducers” will decrease the total cost of the package.The framework calls for both new stimulus money and the reallocation of previously appropriated “CARES Act” funding, and allocates resources to the following key categories: Testing & Healthcare ($100 Billion), Direct Assistance to Individuals & Families ($316 Billion), Unemployment Assistance ($120 Billion), Small Business & Non-profit Support ($290 Billion), School and Child Care ($145 Billion), State and Local Aid ($500.3 Billon), Election Support ($400 Billion), Broadband, Agriculture, USPS and Census ($52 Billion).“Americans deserve a functioning Congress that can rise to the challenge and deliver the relief they need,” said PSC Co-Chair Reed. “Our framework reflects months of bipartisan consensus-building on the actions the federal government can take to help working families and local communities across the country as they navigate the impacts of COVID-19. We are hopeful this package will help bring lead negotiations back to the table as we try to solve this problem for the American people.” Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Coal giant Murray Energy files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy

first_imgCoal giant Murray Energy files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global ($):Murray Energy Holdings Co. and certain subsidiaries filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection following months of financial distress.The move, which will occur under the guidance of new President and CEO Robert Moore, replacing Robert E. Murray, will allow the company to access $350 million in new debtor-in-possession financing.The bankruptcy filing is necessary to implement a restructuring support agreement with an ad hoc lender group holding more than 60% of the approximately $1.7 billion in claims under the company’s superpriority credit and guaranty agreement.Murray Energy is the nation’s largest privately owned coal miner and produced the third-most coal among all U.S. producers in 2018, ousting Cloud Peak Energy Inc. from the top three with nearly 60.5 million tons last year.The Ohio-based coal producer announced earlier this month that it had entered into forbearance agreement after it failed to make amortization and interest payments that were due Sept. 30. The coal producer amended its forbearance agreements and extended the period through Oct. 28.S&P Global Ratings and Moody’s Investors Service downgraded their credit ratings on the company as a result, and Ratings further reduced its ratings down to “default” after the miner missed payments on loans during a grace period that ended Oct. 7.The missed debt payments suggested the company might seek bankruptcy protection, despite founder and Murray’s vow to be the “last man standing” in the coal industry. Murray has also been critical of other coal producers that turned to the bankruptcy court and shed debt as well as financial obligations.Moody’s adjusted its outlook on the coal sector from stable to negative in August, due largely to recently declining seaborne prices coupled with reduced domestic demand for the fuel.“As we think about prospects for companies over the next several years, we’re going to pay more and more attention to specific commercial strategies around exporting: who’s developing which markets, which relationships, how and so forth,” said Benjamin Nelson, senior credit officer and lead coal analyst at Moody’s, in a September interview. “I’d also say that producers at the lower end of our ratings spectrum that have meaningful exposure to the export market, like Foresight or Murray, that’s where you’ll see the most meaningful stress.”More: Murray Energy files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protectionlast_img read more
