AP News said that Asian and African night owls were treated to a lunar eclipse, and ash in the atmosphere from a Chilean volcano turned it blood red for some viewers.

Astronomical calculations confirm that it would be one of the two longest total lunar eclipses of the century.

A total of 85 total lunar eclipses, according to the scientists, will be taking place this century of which the longest total lunar eclipse will occur on July 27, 2018.

Joplin Tornado, US Worst Single Tornado (Twister) Killed 117 – Photos

24 05 2011

The monster tornado that tore through the heart of Joplin, Missouri is reportedly the worst single tornado in modern US history. 

Please click here for more photos, ‘Powerful Tornado (Twister) Hit Joplin, Missouri Killing At Least 89 People – Pictures’.

The tornado touched down at 5:41 p.m. Sunday, about 24 minutes after a warning was issued.

At least 117 people were killed in the disaster

The place looks like it have been hit by a bomb in a big war.

Rescuers race to search for victims trapped under the rubbles of fallen trees, damaged buildings and smashed vehicles before it is too late.

But the work was slowed by a new round of very bad weather; including thunderstorms and hail two inches in diameter that rolled through the city Monday, as well as widespread problems with broken natural gas lines and other safety issues, authorities said.

Two rescuers were struck by lightning as they braved relentless rain and high winds searching for survivors.

By Monday night, they’d found 17 people alive.

I am very sad and sorry to see so many people died, a lot of people injured, have no houses to live in anymore and lost their things. 

 

They must feel very sad. 

More tornadoes are possible Tuesday in Joplin and other cities in the central U.S.

Anyway I hope that there will not be too much more tornado.

Mississippi River Flooding – Louisiana And Mississippi Underwater In Pictures

After 3 days, the water from the flooded Mississippi River has reached places like Butte LaRose and St. Landry Parish at the northern end of the basin, putting some houses underwater.

Towns and crop lands along the Atchafalaya River basin that are in the path of the diverted flood waters could be flooded as high as 20 feet in coming days.

On Tuesday, the Coast Guard closed a 15-mile stretch of the Mississippi River at Natchez, Mississippi, north of New Orleans.

Vessels were blocked from heading toward the Gulf of Mexico and from returning north after dropping off their freight.

These barges carry corn, wheat, soybean and others from the Midwest to ports near New Orleans, where they get loaded onto huge grain carriers to be exported around the world.

 Below are photos of the flooding along the Mississippi River.

The Mississippi River crest Monday At Memphis?

9 05 2011

Forecasters say the Mississippi River could crest late Monday at Memphis, Tennessee.

Mayor AC Wharton said that despite the tightened timeframe, he’s confident that precautions such as door-to-door warnings have prepared the city.

Some area in Memphis are already flooded and lots of people had already moved to safer places.

Is it true that the levee along the Mississippi River made the flooding even worse?

I am very sad to see so many people lost their houses and farmlands in the floods, storms and tornadoes.

A Very Bad Flood Along The Mississippi River – Pictures

5 05 2011

Heavy rains and the winter snow melting had caused bad flooding in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee.

Soon the flood might hit Mississippi and Louisiana at the mouth of the Mississippi River.

Flood is a natural disaster.

Levees were built along the Mississippi River to fight floods.

Anyway they had to break 2 big holes into the levee to save Cairo, Illinois from a very ,very big flood.

The break of the levee caused lots of water to rush through the hole and flooded 130,000 acres of farmland in Missouri’s Mississippi County.

Is this a man- made disaster?
