A triple tropical tempest train: Tropical Storm/Hurricane "Karina", tropical storms "Lowell" and "Marie"

There are currently three tropical storms in the Eastern Pacific Ocean – Tropical Storm/Hurricane “Karina”, Tropical Storm “Lowell” and newly formed Tropical Storm “Marie”. Both Karina and Lowell will gradually weaken over the next couple of days. Marie, however, is expected to rapidly intensify and reach major hurricane status (Category 3 or greater on the Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale) by Monday, August 25.​ All of them were captured in infrared image at 09:00 UTC today by GOES-West satellite (below). All of them were tropical storms at the time.Tropical Storm “Karina”, Tropical Storm “Lowell” and newly formed Tropical Storm “Marie” on August 22, 2014.

Sudden, powerful explosion at Ubinas volcano, Peru

A powerful and sudden explosion occurred at Ubinas volcano, Peru, on August 21, 2014. This latest strong eruption started at 20:36 UTC (15:36 local time). The explosion ejected blocks up to 2 km away from the volcano.The eruption was likely a vulcanian-type event, i.e. caused by the sudden release of pressure as viscous (sticky) and gas-rich magma had accumulated beneath a solid plug in the vent. It shows that the eruptive phase at the volcano continues and is capable of producing extremely dangerous explosions, VolcanoDiscovery reported.(3) En este enlace podrán ver el video de la explosión registrada en el volcán #Ubinas. https://t.co/mlrDINbcjk pic.twitter.com/iRVW3oyLmO— IGP (@igp_peru) August 21, 2014Video courtesy IGPINGEMMET reported that during… »

Cracked Belgian Reactors May Be Retired, Same Risk at 22 Nuclear Plants Worldwide

Two Belgian reactors are receiving continued investigations into the structural cracking problems of their reactor vessels. The steel reactor vessels in question were all made by the now defunct Rotterdam Steel Company. Problems with the fabrication and steel quality lead to unusual cracks that were discovered during routine ageing inspections. A 22 US, European and South American reactors were made by this company and subject to the same potential problem.
The reactors appear to all be either Westinghouse PWR units or GE BWR units made by this particular steel company. When the issue was first discovered the US NRC said they would consider more inspections of the units made by Rotterdam Steel. Since that initial statement nothing has come out of the NRC about the issue or any findings of new inspections.
Belgian officials admitted that the cracks may lead to the impacted units in their country being permanently shut down.
