BREAKING NEWS: Cyclone Debbie at cat. four, expected to make landfall near Bowen later this morning

BOM warns Cyclone Debbie hours from making landfall in Queensland

MARCH 28, 2017

snip video

"Cyclone Debbie is just hours away from making landfall in north Queensland, possibly as a category five system, where winds are already hitting buildings "like a freight train".

About 25,000 people in low-lying areas have been urged to reach higher ground ahead of an expected storm surge.

The eye of the slow-moving category four cyclone was over Hayman Island at 6:00am, but it could intensify before it crosses the coast between Ayr and Midge Point, between midday and 1:00pm.

Winds of up to 190 kilometres per hour are already battering the Whitsunday Islands and the wind is roaring at Airlie Beach, where power has been cut to thousands of homes.

Charlie, on Hamilton Island, said there had been no damage yet, but the wind was intense."

Massive power outage closes San Francisco BART station

Julianne Herrera   April 21, 2017

 

"SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A San Francisco BART station is closed Friday morning due to a power outage, according to BART officials.

Around 9:15 a.m. officials reported that Montgomery Station is closed because of a “technical problem with PG&E.”

BART riders are advised to take Muni as an alternate method of transportation until the issue is resolved.

There is no estimated time for reopening.

KRON4 viewers are calling the station. They are also experiencing the outage from the Marina/Cowhallow area and in the Financial District.

We are also receiving emails from the community that the Laurel Village Shopping Center is powerless.

Let us know is the power outage is affecting you through the “Report It” option on the KRON4 Mobile App."

Uh oh   NYC too

Perhaps the one in NYC is related to "Gotham Shield", a testing of emer. services in the event of a 10 Kiloton nuclear detonation over NYC/Operation Fallout??

F.B.I. Director James Comey Is Fired by Trump

May 9, 2017         MICHAEL D. SHEAR and MATT APUZZO

 

"WASHINGTON — President Trump has fired the director of the F.B.I., James B. Comey, over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, the White House said on Tuesday.

Mr. Comey is leading an investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.  >> (How many people, in intel, have to say there was no such Russian/Trump collusion? It's apparent the NYT is the same as always, by inferring here that Trump had or needed an ulterior motive for firing Comey.  Meanwhile let's discard the fact that Comey, in front of Congress admitted HRC was guilty as hell on all counts, but he could see  no reason to prosecute her! How about the email from L.Lynch, head of DOJ, assuring HRC, that she (LL) would protect her(HRC) from prosecution!  How about we ask again about that tarmac meeting between WJC and LL)

snip    the firing document

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau,” Mr. Trump said in a letter dated Tuesday to Mr. Comey.

“It is essential that we find new leadership for the F.B.I. that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission,” Mr. Trump wrote."

Travis Air Force Base on lockdown for ‘real world security incident’

BY NOEL HARRIS

nharris@sacbee.com

Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield has issued a security alert for what is being called a “real world security incident.”

Bobbie Textor, a secretary in Travis’ public affairs office, said the incident began about 3:20 p.m. during a training exercise on how to respond to a security incident. This resulted in initial confusion, but she said the incident was confirmed as real, not part of the training scenario. [emphasis added by kande, same old story]

Not many details out on this story. "real world security incident" -- I wonder if that will be the new phrase we'll be hearing more of.
