A broad area of low pressure that formed Saturday (June 17) near Honduras is expected to develop into a tropical cyclone early next week in the Gulf of Mexico, according to the National Hurricane Center. The potential storm has been brewing in the Caribbean Sea since Wednesday and now carries an 80 percent chance of developing into a tropical storm or depression within the next five days.
 
The hurricane center is also tracking a tropical wave located thousands of miles southeast of the Gulf that has a 60 percent chance of tropical depression or storm formation over the next five days.
 
In an alert issued Saturday at 1 p.m., hurricane specialist Jack Beven wrote that a broad low pressure area has formed in the Gulf of Honduras and is expected to move northwest across the Yucatan Peninsula over the weekend. As the system slowly develops, it’s poised to form a tropical cyclone early next week in the southern or central portion of the Gulf of Mexico.
 
“Regardless of development, heavy rains are likely to spread over portions of Central America, the Yucatan Peninsula, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and western Cuba during the next several days,” Beven wrote Saturday.
 
A “tropical cyclone” refers generally to any rotating system of clouds and thunderstorms that originates over tropical or subtropical waters and is not yet spinning fast enough to be classified as a hurricane, typhoon or cyclone, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That classification kicks in once the system’s maximum sustained winds reach 74 mph or higher.

Charlie Dickinson of Liverpool wrote this. This whole country needs to read it #Grenfell

SKWAWKBOX

grenfell isolationThe text below was sent to the SKWAWKBOX by a Twitter follower. The people of Liverpool have a particular affinity with the victims of the Grenfell fire, because they know what happened at Hillsborough, how the Establishment tried to blame the victims – which they see happening already over Grenfell Tower – and because they know how hard it is to get justice when the rich and powerful close ranks.

One Liverpool man wrote his thoughts on Grenfell Tower, on how it fits in the overall pattern of what’s happened to this country over the last three decades or so. It’s powerful. It’s damning.

And its final lines need to be a wake-up call for a country that has tolerated the Establishment narrative for far too long.

Ongoing Yellowstone Earthquake Swarm North of West Yellowstone, MT.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations (UUSS) is monitoring an earthquake swarm which is currently active on the western edge of Yellowstone National Park.  The swarm began on June 12th, 2017 and, as of 10:00 MDT on June 16th, 2017, is composed of 235 events with the largest magnitude of ML 4.4 (MW 4.4) (Figure 1).  The swarm consists of one earthquake in the magnitude 4 range, 3 earthquakes in the magnitude 3 range, 41 earthquakes in the magnitude 2 range, 123 earthquakes in the magnitude 1 range, 62 earthquakes in the magnitude 0 range, and 5 earthquakes with magnitudes of less than zero.  These events have depths from ~0.0 km to ~14.5 km, relative to sea level.  At the time of this report, there were 101 felt reports for the M4.4 event that occurred on June 16, 2017 at 00:48:46.94 UTC (June 15, 2017 at 18:48:46.94 MDT).  The M4.4 event has an oblique strike-slip moment tensor solution (Figures 1 & 2).
 
Earthquake swarms are common in Yellowstone and, on average, comprise about 50% of the total seismicity in the Yellowstone region.

#Grenfell survivor ‘only passed 8 people on stairs all the way from upper floor’

The real death toll could be even higher than the 150-200 that music stars Lily Allen and Saskilla told reporters about

SKWAWKBOX

The SKWAWKBOX had a long and traumatic conversation this evening with a businesswoman based near Grenfell Tower who has friends and employees affected by the terrible fire and has been working to provide support and shelter to them and others.

The woman, who wanted her information to be told but asked not to be identified, told this blog about families who survived and those that didn’t, about the contribution of police and council staff or the lack of it – and about fears that the real death toll could be even higher than the 150-200 that music stars Lily Allen and Saskilla told reporters about.

Her own words, unadorned apart from the removal of names and floor numbers, follow:

There are two children that we know really well who were in the block. One family got out, the father was able to shield their little girl and thank God…
