Volcanic Activity

Magma bubbles higher in Mt Tongariro

MICHELLE COOKE

1 of 2

Tests have revealed that magma is bubbling higher than usual in Mount Tongariro, which means further eruptions are more likely.

A series of samples have been tested since the volcano’s Te Mari crater erupted on Monday night, but the latest results give the greatest insight.

“We’re now convinced that the likelihood of this just being a one-off has decreased,” GNS vulcanologist Nico Fournier said.

“But it doesn’t mean it’s just about to blow and go pear-shape.”

The results detected sulphur dioxide and carbon dioxide in the steam plume, which indicated that magma was closer to the surface than it usually was, Fournier said.

It was unclear how high the magma was – it could be anything from meters to kilometers, Fournier said.

If a magmatic eruption did occur then it wouldn’t necessarily be significant, he said. It could result in a lava flow or it could lead to a series of explosions.

“It doesn’t mean it could be a massive eruption, it could be passive,” Fournier said.

It was also likely that Monday night’s eruption could be followed by a series of steam eruptions, or no activity at all, Fournier said.

Civil Defense, along with a number of other organizations including the Department of Conservation, would continue to monitor the volcano’s activity.

There was no new advice or warnings that stemmed from the latest development, a Civil Defence spokesman said.

There was about 2100 tonnes of sulfur dioxide being emitted from the volcano per day.

That was above average and the highest sulfur dioxide emission rate for any New Zealand volcano, however it wasn’t unexpected considering the amount of steam and gas which was being emitted, a GNS spokesperson said.

Further visual observations were being undertaken today.

Scientists would also be obtaining gas and water samples from the nearby Ketetahi hot springs and some of the rocks which were ejected from the crater and which damaged the Ketetahi hut.

The volcano was still ejecting steam and gas this morning while tremors continued to shake the earth below it, Fournier said.

Meanwhile, a 4.7 magnitude earthquake in the Bay of Plenty this morning has had no impact on White Island, which erupted on Tuesday night.

It was the first eruption in 12 years for the country’s most active and largest cone.

White Island tended to have volcanic episodes which lasted a few months to a few years, so this could just be the start of more to come, Rosenberg said.

The Te Mari crater last erupted in 1897.

Massive pumice indicates 3rd active volcano around New Zealand

Wellington, Aug. 10 (Xinhua-ANI): A floating mass of the volcanic rock, pumice, reportedly covering 25,000 square km, has been found floating in the South Pacific, indicating a third volcano is active near New Zealand.

The New Zealand Defense Force (NZDF) said Friday the floating pumice, measuring 250 nautical miles long and 30 nautical miles wide, was first spotted by a New Zealand air force Orion on a maritime patrol from Samoa to New Zealand.

The Orion relayed the information to New Zealand navy vessel HMNZS Canterbury, which spotted the pumice late Thursday about 85 nautical miles west southwest of Raoul Island, one of the Kermadec Islands that lie 750 to 1,000 km northeast of New Zealand.

Lieutenant Tim Oscar, a Royal Australian Navy officer on exchange with the Royal New Zealand Navy, described the pumice as “the weirdest thing I’ve seen in 18 years at sea.”

“The lookout reported a shadow on the ocean ahead of us so I ordered the ship’s spotlight to be trained on the area,” Oscar said in the NZDF statement.

“As far ahead as I could observe was a raft of pumice moving up and down with the swell,” he said.

“The rock looked to be sitting 2 feet (60 cm) above the surface of the waves, and lit up a brilliant white color in the spotlight. It looked exactly like the edge of an ice shelf.”

Oscar said he had been briefed by a volcanologist from New Zealand’s Institute of Geological and Nuclear Science (GNS Science) the previous day when the ship encountered another area of pumice from an undersea volcano.

“I knew the pumice was lightweight and posed no danger to the ship. Nonetheless it was quite daunting to be moving toward it at 14 knots. It took about three to four minutes to travel through the raft of pumice and as predicted there was no damage,” he said.

“As we moved through the raft of pumice we used the spotlights to try and find the edge – but it extended as far as we could see. “

HMNZS Canterbury was en route to Raoul Island with a party of GNS scientists aboard at the time.

The Commanding Officer, Commander Sean Stewart, changed course to intercept the pumice and retrieve samples, which would be analyzed to determine which volcano they came from, said the statement.

According to GNS Science, the underwater volcano, Monowai, had been active along the Kermadec Arc and the pumice could be a result of that activity, said the NZDF statement.

The find comes after eruptions from Mount Tongariro, in New Zealand’s central North Island, late Monday and White Island, a marine volcano about 50 km off the east of the North Island, two days later.

The GNS scientists aboard the Canterbury believed the volcanic activity of Tongariro, White Island and along the Kermadec arc was unrelated, said the NZDF statement. (Xinhua-ANI)

Volcanic activity world-wide 10 Aug 2012: Tongariro, White Island, Askja, Etna, Stromboli, Santorini, Popocatépetl, Nevado del Ruiz, Tungurahua, Sakurajima

BY: T

Santorini\'s "tremor" waking up as usual...

Santorini\’s “tremor” waking up as usual…

Tongariro volcano has remained calm. GNS scientists measured elevated levels of SO2 and other volcanic gasses, which suggests that magma is accumulating beneath the volcano.
It is possible, that the Aug 6 eruption was only a precursor to a pending magmatic eruption, which could even be large, if the size of initial phreatic activity is in proportion to the proper magmatic eruption.

Weak ash emissions continue at White Island, producing a weak plume rising a few 100 m.

Other updates from the rest of the world include the usual candidates who have not shown much new or surprising activity:

Popocatépetl in Mexico: During the past 24 hours, 17 weak explosions occurred, and a constant steam and gas plume is rising. Glow is visible at night.

Fuego volcano: The lava flow towards Barranca Taniluya is active and reaches 200 meters length, producing small avalanches. 3 explosions were counted by the observatory yesterday and reached heights around 400 m.

Santiaguito / Santa Maria (Guatemala) produced a hot lahar yesterday at 21:50 h local time which drained large amounts of volcanic material and blocks. It lasted 15 minutes during which the windows of the observatory were vibrating.

Nevado del Ruiz (Colombia) produces a significant plume of SO2.

Tungurahua volcano: The volcano has moderately strong seismic activity with phases of tremor frequently visible, related to fluid movements. No reports of recent explosions. Direct observations have been difficult due to bad weather.

El Hierro volcano: slightly increased number of quakes during the past days, including a shallow (3 km) M2.4 event on 8 Aug in the central part of the island.

A slightly increased tremor is visible at Stromboli in the Eolian island today suggesting that activity is higher today.
At nearby Etna, tremor continues to be low and glow at night is currently not visible from Bocca Nuova, suggesting that explosions, if any, are weak.

In Iceland, Askja volcano has been showing increased signs of unrest including higher than background levels of tremor, as Diana Barnes remarked on VolcanoCafe.

A comment on rumors about elevated tremor on Santorini volcano was posted as well. It is interesting to note that “tremor” usually starts in the morning and ends at night.

Finally, Sakurajima volcano in Japan produced 2 moderate to weak explosions so far today. VAAC Tokyo alerts of ash plumes rising 2.4 and 2.1 km, respectively.

10.08.2012 Non-categorized event Other Pacific Ocean – West, [About 620 miles northeast of Auckland] Damage level Details

Non-categorized event in Other on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 10:00 (10:00 AM) UTC.

Description
A mass of small volcanic rocks nearly the size of Belgium has been discovered floating off the coast of New Zealand. The stretch of golf-ball-size pumice rocks was first spotted this week by a New Zealand air force plane about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) northeast of Auckland. The rocks stretch for about 26,000 square kilometers (10,000 square miles). A navy ship took scientists to the rocks Thursday night. Naval Lt. Tim Oscar says the rocks appeared a brilliant white under a spotlight, like a giant ice shelf. He says it’s the “weirdest thing” he’s seen in 18 years at sea. Scientists say the rocks likely spewed up in an eruption by an underwater volcano. They don’t believe the eruption is connected to the onshore ash eruption this week of another volcano, Mount Tongariro. Officials say the small rocks pose no danger to shipping. The Defence Force says the mass of rocks stretches 250 nautical miles by 30 nautical miles.

Extreme Temperatures/ Weather

10.08.2012 Heat Wave USA State of Colorado, Denver Damage level Details

Heat Wave in USA on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 09:53 (09:53 AM) UTC.

Description
Approaching a string of days with highs in the 90s, meteorologists and forecasters would probably quote official records and use specific examples of sizzlingly high temperatures to describe this sweltering summer. But for city residents such as 19-year-old Cadence Noble, one word will do: “Hot,” Noble said. “It’s been hot.” The metro area had seen 53 days this year with the high temperature at or above 90 degrees. With a high of 98 on Thursday — which tied the all-time high for the date — that streak reached 54, forecasters said. The record for days in the 90s is 61, which was set in 2000. With temperatures for the next couple of days projected in the mid- to upper 90s, forecasters said there’s a good chance the previous record will be broken. In addition to the heat, forecasters for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said the recent heavy haze, caused by wildfire smoke from Montana and the Pacific Northwest settling over metro Denver, has negatively affected air quality. The air-quality index for Denver was listed as “moderate” Thursday afternoon, meaning that unusually sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion. “At these concentration levels, it’s more of an annoyance with the low visibility it creates, but it hasn’t risen to the point where it causes health effects,” said Emmett Malone, an air-quality meteorologist for the state. “As thick as this haze is, we’ll be close to or under it until tomorrow,” Malone added. Noble, who works at a restaurant on the 16th Street Mall, said she has been trying to beat the summer heat by taking advantage of air conditioning and frequenting local water parks. And while the heat does get to her, Noble said, she grew up in the East, where summers aren’t only hot but humid.
10.08.2012 Extreme Weather Australia State of New South Wales, Sydney Damage level Details

Extreme Weather in Australia on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 06:19 (06:19 AM) UTC.

Description
Boats were blown on shore at Little Manly Beach, a roof was ripped off and planes at Sydney airport were delayed as Sydney was hit by strong winds today. The winds reached as high as 106km/h on Sydney Harbour, the strongest gusts in at least six years. And they reached 111km/h at the highly exposed station of Wattamolla in the Royal National Park. All Sydney ferry services between Manly and Circular Quay had been suspended because of large swells, the Transport Management Centre said. A Sydney airport representative said gusts of up to 75km/h were “causing delays of up to 60 minutes at the domestic terminal”. International flights were not affected. A State Emergency Service (SES) representative said there were reports that a roof had been blown off St Paul’s Catholic school at Manly. And a fallen tree had crushed an unoccupied car in Ingleburn.There had not been any reports of injuries. Sydney and Wollongong, in the Illawarra region of NSW, were the worst hit. The electricity network Ausgrid electricity said winds had left Sydney homes and businesses without power. Ausgrid representative Kylie Yates said emergency crews were scrambling to restore power. “As soon as we restore power in one area we seem to lose power in another,” she told Macquarie Radio. Branches falling on powerlines were the main problem. She said 7000 homes had lost power. Cronulla, Narrabeen, Mona Vale, North Curl Curl, Belrose, Riverwood and Asquith had been affected by power losses, she said. The winds are drawing a bitterly cold air mass over the state and cold winds are making the city feel close to freezing. Sydney’s temperature fell below 8 degrees this morning, but the relentless winds have made it feel closer to 3 degrees. “Wind chill will have the tendency to drag the temperature down,” Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Dmitriy Danchuk said this morning. “For Sydney for today we’re expecting temperatures within the 13 to 16 degrees range, but in the middle of the day I wouldn’t be surprised if it feels like temperatures slightly above zero.” The New South Wales ski resorts have had widespread falls of 20-40 centimetres of snow during the past 48 hours, with Perisher gaining more than 50 centimetres.
10.08.2012 Extreme Weather USA State of South Carolina, [Northwestern Regions] Damage level Details

Extreme Weather in USA on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 03:33 (03:33 AM) UTC.

Description
Showers and thunderstorms are tearing through the Carolinas Thursday. Heavy rain and strong winds are responsible for knocking down several trees. According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol, a tree fell on Interstate 85 northbound in Greenville County at the 54 mile marker. All lanes were blocked and traffic backed up for several miles. Numerous trees fell along the Pelham Road corridor, including one that fell on a man home in the Brookfield sub-division. Another tree crashed through a small fence at Christ The King Lutheran Church. Several trees knocked down powerlines along Rolling Green Circle in Greenville County. 7 On Your Side has received several other reports of trees and flooding blocking roadways. Firefighters say a home in Tryon caught fire after being struck by lightning. Thousands are without power according to Duke Energy.
10.08.2012 Forest / Wild Fire USA State of Oregon, [Barry Point (Lake County)] Damage level Details

Forest / Wild Fire in USA on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 03:00 (03:00 AM) UTC.

Description
A Forest Service campground has been closed, and residents of two homes were warned about increased danger as a forest fire grew in southern Lake County near the Nevada border. The word went out late Wednesday to evacuate the Dog Lake Campground, where there are an estimated 20 campsites. Residents of two privately owned residences within the Fremont-Winema National Forest were warned of potential dangers. The structure in greatest jeopardy was a fire lookout tower, which had gotten a protective wrapping, Forest Service spokeswoman Lisa Swinney said Thursday. The Barry Point fire area had grown to about 3 square miles. The daily fire report said it had a high potential to spread. At midday, Swinney said, there was no accurate containment estimate. Lightning that started over the weekend set off dozens of fires in Oregon, some of which grew to significant size or complexity. As with the Barry Point fire, just north of Nevada, many were along the state’s borders. Southwest of Medford, along the Oregon-California border, the Forest Service said crews were struggling to get a hold on a complex of small fires centered on the Red Buttes Wilderness area. It said the fire was spreading in “extremely steep and heavily forested terrain,” on about half a square mile of terrain _ about 340 acres. Video shot from the air showed standing dead trees, or “snags,” from the last big fire in the area, in 1987. The Forest Service said more firefighters were being pressed into service. To the east, a large fire from Nevada crept north into Harney County. The fire area totaled nearly 200 square miles, and its potential for growth was rated as extreme. Along the Idaho border in the far eastern part of the state, firefighters said they had established containment lines around an 8-square-mile fire south of Vale. In Central Oregon, a 2-square-mile fire near Sisters that briefly threatened a subdivision earlier in the week was expected to be contained Thursday. A disintegrating tire on a tanker headed for the Lakeview-area fire caused concern Wednesday at the Medford airport. The DC-7 tanker took off with a load of retardant. Workers noticed pieces of the tire on the runway, and a pilot on another tanker saw the tire was damaged but still inflated. After dropping its load of retardant, the tanker returned to Medford and landed safely, as firefighters kept watch.

MEXICO CITY | Fri Aug 10, 2012 12:40pm EDT

(Reuters) – The death toll attributed to the storm Ernesto rose to six on Friday although it continued to weaken as it passed through Mexico’s eastern Veracruz state.

Three members of one family were killed on Thursday night when a tree fell on their pick-up truck about 60 miles southwest of Veracruz city, according to a state civil protection official. A fourth family member, a six-year-old child, was also injured in the accident.

Ernesto is blamed for causing torrential rains and flooding in nearby rivers.

According to local officials, three other people died earlier on Thursday — one in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, after falling while working on home repairs; and two more who drowned in next-door Tabasco state.

Three major oil-exporting ports in the Gulf of Mexico were re-opened on Friday morning as the storm no longer posed a risk to ships leaving installations in Coatzacoalcos, Cayo Arcas and Dos Bocas, which ship most of Mexico’s crude oil exports.

Flooding could damage agriculture in southern Veracruz, a major corn producing area, according to Federico Assaleih, president of the state’s agriculture council.

“We have received reports that some (corn) plantations were flooded yesterday,” said Assaleih, but he added that the extent of crop damage would not be known for several days.

Ernesto, which the U.S. National Hurricane Center said dissipated on Friday morning, made landfall on Mexico’s Yucatan coast late on Tuesday as a Category 1 hurricane.

10.08.2012 Tropical Storm Mexico State of Veracruz, [Veracruz-wide] Damage level Details

Tropical Storm in Mexico on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 03:22 (03:22 AM) UTC.

Description
Tropical Storm Ernesto crossed the coast of the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, sending wind gusts and showers across the state of Veracruz, home to some of Mexico’s busiest ports and oil installations. The storm, with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph, made landfall in the early afternoon close to the port city of Coatzacoalcos. Ernesto was heading west over southern Mexico at a speed of about 10 mph, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said in its 5 p.m. EDT advisory. Mexico’s government downgraded a hurricane warning for the coast of Veracruz to a tropical storm warning. The hurricane center said it expects further weakening as Ernesto moves over mountainous terrain in the next day or two. However, torrential rain and flooding was expected in Veracruz and authorities reported three deaths. Officials from state-run oil company Pemex said there were no reports of disruptions to facilities in the region, which include the Minatitlan refinery, producing 185,000 barrels of crude per day. The eye of the storm passed the oilfields of Cantarell and Ku Maloob Zaap, which account for just over half of Mexico’s oil production of about 2.5 million bpd.Coatzacoalcos is home to one of Mexico’s key oil exporting ports, which has been closed since Wednesday along with Cayo Arcas and Dos Bocas. Almost all of Mexico’s crude oil exports, which totaled 1.425 million bpd in June, are shipped to refineries on the Gulf Coast of the United States from the three ports. Authorities in Veracruz said they were preparing emergency shelters, if needed, in the flood-prone and densely populated state. The small Mina-Coatza airport, between Minatitlan and Coatzacoalcos, was closed on Thursday and waves of 13-20 feet were reported along the coast. Ernesto is forecast to plow through Veracruz state and into central Mexico on Friday as a tropical depression. The storm previously made landfall on Mexico’s Yucatan coast late on Tuesday as a Category 1 hurricane, the lowest on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, before being downgraded to a tropical storm on Wednesday. Two people drowned and about 100 houses were damaged as the storm swept through the swampy state of Tabasco toward the Gulf of Mexico, according to local officials. One person died in Coatzacoalcos after falling while working on home repairs, an official from the local Red Cross unit said. The storm spared major tourist areas on the peninsula from a direct hit and landed in sparsely populated low-lying jungle, near the port town of Mahahual, 40 miles north of Chetumal, the capital of Quintana Roo state. Ernesto passed well south of the major tourist resort of Cancun, which saw only heavy rains. About 2,500 people were evacuated from Chetumal up the coast to Tulum in an area known for its scuba diving and ecotourism attractions. Rainfall of 3 to 6 inches, and possibly 15 inches in some areas, was expected in the states of Tabasco, Veracruz, Puebla and northern Oaxaca through Friday, the center said.

Unusual Summer Storm Blasts the Arctic

NASA

NASA

A rare summer storm blasted the Arctic this week, beginning off the coast of Alaska, and moving over much of the Arctic Sea for several days before dissipating.

Although the storm itself was uncommon — NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., estimates that there have only been about eight similarly strong August storms in the last 34 years — the real news behind the meteorological event is the stunning Aug. 6 photo taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite. The cyclone is spinning toward the North Pole, with Greenland visible in the bottom-left of the image. Scientists are left speculating what the impact of such a storm could be.

From NASA:

Arctic storms such as this one can have a large impact on the sea ice, causing it to melt rapidly through many mechanisms, such as tearing off large swaths of ice and pushing them to warmer sites, churning the ice and making it slushier, or lifting warmer waters from the depths of the Arctic Ocean.

“It seems that this storm has detached a large chunk of ice from the main sea ice pack. This could lead to a more serious decay of the summertime ice cover than would have been the case otherwise, even perhaps leading to a new Arctic sea ice minimum,” said Claire Parkinson, a climate scientist with NASA Goddard. “Decades ago, a storm of the same magnitude would have been less likely to have as large an impact on the sea ice, because at that time the ice cover was thicker and more expansive.”

10.08.2012 Flash Flood USA State of New Jersey, Perth Amboy Damage level Details

Flash Flood in USA on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 07:23 (07:23 AM) UTC.

Description
Summer storms hammered the Tri-State area and created flash floods for some. Cars were washed away and drivers rescued in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. It could be an even worse situation on Friday with more rain on the way. Tow truck drivers were still trying to rescue a stranded SUV as the water was slowly receding around it. According to officials it had been submerged and it wasn’t the only vehicle buried in the high water. “We winced one car out from the other side, it was a Mini Cooper, and winced that to the other side of Route 9, the water was over the roof,” a tow truck driver said. Law enforcement used boats to search for vehicles they might have missed in the high water, and this was after several rescues. What happened in the area was a classic flash flood. At around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, heavy driving rains caused storm drains to fill and in a matter of minutes the ramp connection 440 North to Route 9 South was flooded. “Reports were that there were cars trapped in the water with people trapped in the car. We arrived on scene, we had three cars submerged, we had one lady up to her knees, she was on the roof of the car, the water was up to her knees,” a firefighter said. They rescued her and there was a Good Samaritan who rescued two other motorists from their cars. What is left now is the damage to the cars from the flooding, and the detours that were caused into the evening.

10.08.2012 Epidemic Hazard Hungary Capital City, Budapest Damage level Details

Epidemic Hazard in Hungary on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 15:44 (03:44 PM) UTC.

Description
Yesterday AVN received a tip from a reliable source with knowledge of adult video production in Europe who said that there is currently an outbreak of syphilis in Budapest. AVN was able to corroborate the tip with Sandy’s Models and Brill Babes, 2 of the biggest modeling agencies in the Hungarian capital. The infection is widespread enough that all production has been put on hold in Budapest until 21 Aug 2012. “There is some serious situation here in Budapest,” Cameron of Sandy’s Models told AVN. “Yesterday – 7 Aug 2012 – the Labor [department] sent a warning e-mail that they found that [the number of people infected with syphilis has] dramatically increased.” AVN Hall of Famer Rocco Siffredi, who’s based in Budapest, told AVN Tuesday that “today the number of people infected is 21 and the outbreak is not over!” Both Cameron and Eszter of Brill Babes put the number of syphilis infections at 18 (14 females and 4 males), with 8 female performers receiving positive results on Monday [6 Aug 2012] alone. “All the models go to double syphilis check from yesterday – 7 Aug 2012, and the whole business stops till – 21 Aug 2012,” Eszter of Brill Babes told AVN. “After the 21st everyone should retest again, and only the totally clear people are able to work in the future. Maybe the break will take longer; we’ll see.” It’s not known at this point where the infection originated, but Siffredi pointed out that many foreign performers come to Budapest to shoot, and that he suspects the infection came from somewhere else. “The big problem is that not only local performers are involved but also Czechs and Russians where we believe that this all think start [sic],” he said. AVN will be following this story as it develops.

10.08.2012 Epidemic Hazard Pakistan State of Sindh, Karachi Damage level Details

Epidemic Hazard in Pakistan on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 03:28 (03:28 AM) UTC.

Description
The first case of deadly Congo Crimean Hemorrhagic Fever has been confirmed from a private hospital in Karachi, whose lab analysis confirmed that the patient was suffering from the viral disease, officials said on Thursday. The Sindh Dengue Surveillance Cell officials confirmed that the patient, whose name was not disclosed, was admitted to a private hospital in Karachi with symptoms of Congo Crimean Hemorrhagic Fever. His test from another private hospital confirmed that he was suffering from the disease. Sources in the provincial health department said the patient’s name was Jumma Khan, whose age was between 40 and 45 years and he belongs to Karachi. He was being treated at a local private hospital after testing positive for the Congo Crimean Hemorrhagic fever. According to World Health Organisation (WHO), CCHF is a severe disease in humans, with a high mortality rate. Fortunately, human illness occurs rarely, although animal infection may be more common. The WHO says the disease has been prevalent in Pakistan, especially in the Balochistan province, since 2000 and over last two years, caused the deaths of several people.
Biohazard name: Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF)
Biohazard level: 4/4 Hazardous
Biohazard desc.: Viruses and bacteria that cause severe to fatal disease in humans, and for which vaccines or other treatments are not available, such as Bolivian and Argentine hemorrhagic fevers, H5N1(bird flu), Dengue hemorrhagic fever, Marburg virus, Ebola virus, hantaviruses, Lassa fever, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, and other hemorrhagic or unidentified diseases. When dealing with biological hazards at this level the use of a Hazmat suit and a self-contained oxygen supply is mandatory. The entrance and exit of a Level Four biolab will contain multiple showers, a vacuum room, an ultraviolet light room, autonomous detection system, and other safety precautions designed to destroy all traces of the biohazard. Multiple airlocks are employed and are electronically secured to prevent both doors opening at the same time. All air and water service going to and coming from a Biosafety Level 4 (P4) lab will undergo similar decontamination procedures to eliminate the possibility of an accidental release.

Mysterious Phenomenon

The blood red lake beauty spot which is startling tourists in southern France

By Daily Mail Reporter

It might look like a scene from a horror film but this is the breathtaking natural phenomenon which has met tourists at a popular French beauty spot.

The stunning scenes in Camargue, southern France, may look very dramatic but are actually thought to be caused by the high levels of salt within the water.

The bizarre sight was captured by photographer, Sam Dobson, from Moscow in Russia.

The sinister red water stretches as far as the eye can see. The stunning scenes may look very dramatic but are actually thought to be caused by the high levels of salt within the water

Biological Hazards / Wildlife

10.08.2012 Biological Hazard USA State of Texas, City of Pflugerville Damage level Details

Biological Hazard in USA on Friday, 10 August, 2012 at 03:24 (03:24 AM) UTC.

Description
It’s a stretch of road where not much has changed, at least in Willard Hebbe’s lifetime. “A few bicyclists out here,” said Hebbe. “They like to come out here and ride, but it’s just a country road out here.” It’s a road Hebbe knows well, which is why what he drove by Thursday stood out. “I saw a truck in the driveway, kind of strange and unusual,” said Hebbe. Strange because, the fence usually hiding it from view was ripped right out of the ground. “After awhile we had two or three fire trucks and an ambulance and a tow truck,” Hebbe added. That’s when Hebbe’s daughter Kristin started taking pictures, capturing much more than a wrecked truck. The driver’s off road ride finally ended when the truck slammed into the corner of a nearby house ending one accident and starting another. “Evidently there was a swarm of bees in the house and the bees attacked the guy getting out of the truck,” explained Hebbe. The swarm stung not only the driver, but several others, including the homeowner who tried to pull him to safety. The attack makes five in the past week for Travis County. They started last Friday with two attacks near Koenig and Lamar. Another swarm struck north Austin off Croslin Street. The worst was Wednesday in Plugerville, when bees stung a man more than 300 times. Thursday’s swarm wasn’t even the biggest. A bee wrangler said the hive was just a few years old. “I don’t know what’s up with all these bees,” smiled Hebbe. “I don’t think these are related to those bees, but don’t really know for sure.” What Hebbe does know, he’ll be keeping an eye out for all things that buzz. Travis County EMS says the driver of that truck was taken to Seton Williamson Hospital. The man is expected to make a full recovery.

10.08.2012 Biological Hazard USA State of Colorado, [Logan County] Damage level Details

Biological Hazard in USA on Thursday, 09 August, 2012 at 03:21 (03:21 AM) UTC.

Description
A deadly disease that hasn’t been seen in Colorado for 31-years has been found in the northeast part of state. The Colorado Department of Agriculture is currently investigating an anthrax case in Logan County; one deceased cow is confirmed to have been infected with the disease, approximately 50 dead cattle are suspected to have been exposed. One location has tested positive and adjacent ranchers are being notified. No cattle left the location prior to the quarantine. No cattle entered the food chain. “The risk is minimal outside the affected ranch. We believe, at this point, that anthrax is confined to that specific premises,” said State Veterinarian, Dr. Keith Roehr. “Colorado has not had an anthrax case in 31 years but anthrax outbreaks are not uncommon in the Western United States. We are dedicated to providing the necessary response to ensure that the investigation works quickly to limit the spread of this disease.” The premises has been quarantined and people, cattle, and equipment that may have come into contact with anthrax are being monitored during this investigation. “Our focus is on the potential for human exposure,” said Dr. Tony Cappello, district public health administrator for the Northeast Colorado Health Department.“We are currently conducting our own public health investigation and contacting individuals that have been involved with the livestock. Anthrax is not spread from person to person and exposure is limited only to those who had contact with the affected cattle or the immediate area.” Anthrax can develop naturally in soil; the spores can become active in association with periods of marked climatic or ecologic change such as heavy rainfall, flooding or drought which can then expose the anthrax spores to grazing livestock. Outbreaks of anthrax are commonly associated with neutral or alkaline soils. In these areas the spores apparently revert to the vegetative form and multiply to infectious levels so that cattle, horses, mules, sheep and goats may readily become infected when grazing such areas. Anthrax is a serious disease because it can cause the rapid loss of a large number of animals in a very short time. Often, animals are found dead with no illness detected. Appropriate carcass disposal is being used to prevent further soil contamination. Producers should consult their veterinarians and vaccinate their livestock, if deemed appropriate. Humans or animals can become infected by coming in contact with infected animals, soil or water. Anthrax infection can be treated with antibiotics, especially if caught in the early stages.
Biohazard name: Anthrax (cow)
Biohazard level: 4/4 Hazardous
Biohazard desc.: Viruses and bacteria that cause severe to fatal disease in humans, and for which vaccines or other treatments are not available, such as Bolivian and Argentine hemorrhagic fevers, H5N1(bird flu), Dengue hemorrhagic fever, Marburg virus, Ebola virus, hantaviruses, Lassa fever, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, and other hemorrhagic or unidentified diseases. When dealing with biological hazards at this level the use of a Hazmat suit and a self-contained oxygen supply is mandatory. The entrance and exit of a Level Four biolab will contain multiple showers, a vacuum room, an ultraviolet light room, autonomous detection system, and other safety precautions designed to destroy all traces of the biohazard. Multiple airlocks are employed and are electronically secured to prevent both doors opening at the same time. All air and water service going to and coming from a Biosafety Level 4 (P4) lab will undergo similar decontamination procedures to eliminate the possibility of an accidental release.
