Hurricane Maria batters Puerto Rico with force 'not seen in modern history'

quote [ Hurricane Maria is pummelling Puerto Rico, bringing "catastrophic" 155mph winds and dangerous storm surges, after battering the Virgin Islands.

The "monster" storm is one of the strongest to ever hit the US territory, with warnings that heavy rain could cause landslides and storm surges of up to 9ft that risk swamping low-lying areas. ]

This is a live update storm tracker.
PR is getting its ass kicked right now.

7.1 magnitude quake kills 119 as buildings crumble in Mexico

quote [ A magnitude 7.1 earthquake stunned central Mexico on Tuesday, killing at least 119 people as buildings collapsed in plumes of dust. Thousands fled into the streets in panic, and many stayed to help rescue those trapped. Dozens of buildings tumbled into mounds of rubble or were severely... ]

Damn - 32 years ago today in 1985, a massive earthquake hit Mexico City, and today a massive earthquake just hit Mexico City.

NASA photos: Hurricane Irma Turns Caribbean Islands Brown

quote [ Hurricane Irma churned across the Atlantic Ocean in September 2017, battering several Caribbean islands before moving on to the Florida Keys and the U.S. mainland. As the clouds cleared over places like the Virgin Islands, the destruction became obvious even from space. ]

August 25th vs. September 10th. Ouch. This gives a good macro view of the destruction. I read someone who lived through it call Irma, "Like a giant lawn mower rolling over the island."

Flamingos In The Men's Room: How Zoos And Aquariums Handle Hurricanes

quote [ Although the netting for that aviary was tested for 150 mph winds," Magill says, "it was not tested to be able to withstand the impact of a mobile home that was picked up in those winds and launched into the aviary like a torpedo. ]

That quote made me think of the Ron White post a few days ago.

The Mysterious Connection Between Solar Storms and Stranded Whales

quote [ Sperm whales are the largest of the world?s toothed whales?smaller than giant, filter-feeding blue whales, but still the size of four big elephants?and they live out in the deep ocean, where they feed on squid, along with the occasional octopus, ray, or shark. ]

Mexico's strongest quake in a century strikes off southern coast

quote [ There are at least 36 deaths after the powerful 8.2 quake struck off the southern coast.

The quake... struck in the Pacific, about 87km (54 miles) south-west of Pijijiapan.

Oaxaca and Chiapas states bore the brunt of the damage and dozens of aftershocks have been reported.

A tsunami warning was initially issued but later lifted.

The quake, which struck at 23:50 local time on Thursday (04:50 GMT Friday), was felt hundreds of miles away in Mexico City, with buildings swaying and people running into the street. ]

Thanks, nature. More infrastructure/urban renewal coming up.

Hurricane Irma leaves more than 1 million without power in Puerto Rico

quote [ Hurricane Irma carved a merciless path of destruction through the Caribbean, killing at least 12 people, leaving thousands of others homeless and plunging more than 1 million residents of Puerto Rico into darkness.

As the eye of the Category 5 storm passed north of Puerto Rico early Thursday, a string of Caribbean islands grappled with flattened homes, flooding and widespread devastation. Irma battered the tiny island of Barbuda and the island territories of St. Bart and St. Martin, where local officials said about 95 percent of the island was completely demolished after Wednesday's thrashing. ]

Jose is right behind as well. Big thanks to donnie for the link to the completely addictive global winds map where I grabbed the "right now as we speak" thumb (link in extended).
