A new tropical storm could impact Florida by the weekend

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center is expecting this system to maintain tropical storm strength over the next several days as it approaches South FloridaBy Dr. Athena Masson, Florida StormsPotential Tropical Cyclone Nine formed Tuesday morning about 500 miles east of the Windward Islands. Uncertainty in the fate of the developing storm is high, but parts of the Sunshine State could be affected by the end of the week.Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine predicted likely to strengthen further Tuesday and become a Tropical Storm Tuesday night as it tracks west-northwest toward northern parts of the Lesser Antilles. Tropical Storm Warning have been issued for the northern Lesser Antilles and Puerto Rico as of Tuesday morning. Heavy rainfall and potentially life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides is anticipated across the northern island chain and parts of the eastern Greater Antilles beginning Wednesday.UPDATE: At 1100 PM AST Tuesday night, the disturbance was centered near latitude 14.6 North, longitude 59.4 West. The system is moving toward the westnorthwest near 25 mph (41 km/h), and this general motion with some slight reduction in forward speed is expected over the next few days. On the forecast track, the system will move through the Leeward Islands on Wednesday, near or over the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico Wednesday night, and near or over Hispaniola on Thursday.Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is expected during the next 48 hours, and the system is forecast to become a tropical storm on Wednesday.Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for additional development, and a tropical storm is forecast to form on Wednesday. * Formation chance through 48 hours…high…90 percent * Formation chance through 5 days…high…90 percentTropicalstormforce winds extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km) from the center.The long-range track and intensity forecast for this system remain uncertain at this time given the unorganized structure of the potential cyclone. The majority of weather models agree that this system will likely approach the Windward Islands and take a northerly turn over the eastern Greater Antilles. If the system comes into contact with these larger islands it could help to keep the storm below hurricane strength as it approaches the Sunshine State by Saturday night and overnight into Sunday. There is still the possibility that Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine will remain out at sea and turn before impacting the continental United States, or even dissipate before approaching Florida.The latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center is expecting this system to maintain tropical storm strength over the next several days as it approaches South Florida. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter Aircraft was scheduled to investigate the system Tuesday afternoon providing more information on the strength of the Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine. When wind data was collected it indicated that the disturbance has not become any better organized since the previous advisory.This system will be given the name “Isaias” once it is deemed a tropical storm by the National Hurricane Center (maximum wind speeds of 39 mph or 62.8 km/h). This would be the earliest ninth named storm on record in the North Atlantic basin. The current record for the earliest “I” named storm was “Irene” on August 7, 2005.Expires at 5:00pm on Wednesday July 29th, 2020 TAGSfloridaFloridaStorms.orgNational Hurricane CenterStormsTropical stormWeekend Previous article17-year-old Apopka resident signs contract with Orlando City SCNext articleEverything coming to Hulu in August 2020 Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 You have entered an incorrect email address!

For more than two decades, a high-crime light-rail stop at a toxic empty lot; now, a sustainable affordable housing development and new gateway to downtown. This new affordable rental building remediates a toxic site, bolsters important local electrical and storm-water infrastructure, and brings compact transit-oriented homes to a neglected area. Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe project provides 63 affordable homes for local singles and families earning between 30 and 50% of area median income. Taking a strong stand along the rail line, the building provides new neighborhood-serving spaces and puts eyes on the street with private balconies, an outdoor lobby and stair tower, and bridge ways that create views at all levels and on all sides of the site. Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe street level facing the light-rail station is activated by new commercial space and a café. An open-air stair and bridge emphasizes walk-ability and social interaction. The building provides secure indoor and outdoor bicycle parking.

Community space and services for both projects are provided on this site.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe sustainable strategies for this project should be understood within the larger context of the whole development, which was planned to transform a high-crime, neglected site next to one of the most utilized transit stops in Sacramento into a diverse, high-density, transit-oriented, mixed-use gateway to the downtown area. Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteA series of complementary simple and readily available green strategies were employed to reduce the negative impacts of the building on the site, while enhancing measures that improve quality of life for residents.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSite constraints placed most units facing east and west, and heat gain was minimized by facing windows north and south around balconies, minimizing west-facing glazing, and allowing the cladding material to double as a sun shade. A 34 kW rooftop PV array provides a portion of common-area electricity. The project also features low-impact materials, including low-VOC interiors, permeable paving, and drought-tolerant landscaping. Low-energy and low-maintenance technologies such as LED fixtures in the corridors and high-reflectance roofing contributed to the building exceeding Title 24 by 10%.

Men’s basketball faces Big 12 Tournament defeat in overtime against Kansas State

Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award + posts Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Facebook ReddIt printThe Horned Frogs led during most of the game Thursday in Kansas City at the Big 12 Tournament against Kansas State, but TCU’s woes from the free throw hampered the team in its 66-64 overtime loss.Eight of TCU’s ten losses to Big 12 teams this season have been by six points or fewer.Almost every statistic was nearly identical between the two teams as they both shot 46 percent from the field, hauled in 33 rebounds, and the Wildcats scored just two more points in the paint, 32-30, than the Horned Frogs.“Ultimately our defense has not been what I wanted it to be,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said.  “It’s improved, but still not where it needs to be to finish things off. We shot 46 percent, and we were way up on the rebounds, but it turned the other way in the second half: they were way more physical than us, that was evident.”The Horned Frogs missed 7 of its 14 looks at the charity stripe to the Wildcats 11 of 17 and TCU gave away the basketball three more times, 14, than KSU, 11.“It’s the free throws hurting us and today was turnovers,” Dixon said. “We were leading the conference in lowest turnovers, lowest in the country, and that’s been hurting us now.Robinson sprinted downcourt with the Horned Frogs trailing by three with the time running out, and he found guard Desmond Bane on the right wing. Bane collected the pass and elevated into a buzzer-beating three-pointer that left his fingertips moments before the clock zero, sending TCU and Kansas State into overtime tied at 59.“Everybody collapsed on men and I saw Kenrich and Desmond over there and the guy was closing out on Kenrich so I skipped it through the corner to Desmond,” TCU guard Alex Robinson said.The sophomore’s buzzer-beater was the only shot he made after he missed his first three attempts and then he fouled out early in overtime. Bane also added seven rebounds, three assists and a steal.TCU guard Desmond Bane celebrates his buzzer-beater three-pointer. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe Horned Frogs relied on its seniors to keep it afloat in overtime as forward Vladimir Brodziansky and guard Kenrich Williams hit on five of their six free throw attempts, which left their matchup with the Wildcats even at 64 with 34.5 seconds remaining.Wildcat guard Barry Brown converted on a layup through contact from Horned Frog guard Shawn Olden, but he missed the free throw, leaving a window of opportunity for TCU.TCU guard Alex Robinson capitalized, drawing a foul on KSU forward Makol Mawien, which gave him a chance to send the contest into a second overtime, as the Horned Frogs were down two, 66-64, with 1.5 seconds left. However, the junior’s first attempt rolled around the rim before hitting the ground. Robinson missed the second attempt intentionally to try to create a put-back layup chance, but Wildcat forward Xavier Sneed grabbed the rebound as the clock hit zero, ending the Horned Frogs’ time at the Big 12 Tournament.Williams led TCU, earning his 13th double-double this season and 34th of his career with game-highs of 20 points and 10 rebounds.TCU guard Kenrich Williams finishes a lay-up over the Kansas State defense. (Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.) Brodziansky ended up with 13 points, just three after halftime, and seven rebounds.“Their philosophy, what they did to Vlad was clear, and we knew it was coming, but they were clearly more physical than us, especially in the second half. ” Dixon said. “We wanted to get him more touches, but they were fronting the post, throwing two bodies, sometimes three at him.”Robinson concluded the contest with 16 points and six assists, making a career-high three shots from behind the three-point line to go along with a career-high three steals. However, he hit on just one of his five free throw attempts.“I just have to move on and continue to work to get better and learn from the situation,” he said talking about his struggles from the line.Dixon said TCU’s mistakes piled up throughout the game.“A couple bad shots and turnovers, we look at bad shots as turnovers, and they got to the foul line,” Dixon said. “We couldn’t let them get more free throws than they got and they got more than we got. “So I think those are the things that stand out.Up NextNow, the Horned Frogs wait until Sunday to learn where they play next in the postseason.“We put ourselves in good position and we feel we should have won these last two games down the stretch, but we didn’t,” Dixon said. “It’s two of the same things: shot selection, a little bit late when he had the leads and the foul line, got to get to the foul line more times than our opponent and make more free throws. That’s a big goal for us.” A disappointed TCU team walks back to the locker room following their 66-64 overtime defeat to Kansas State.

Director of private daily “Le Citoyen” threatened with imminent arrest

According to information collected by the organisation, the journalist may be arrested in the coming days. Gbossokotto has been targeted by the authorities for the past several weeks, as “Le Citoyen” has repeatedly denounced the actions ofJean-Pierre Bemba’s Congolese troops. The troops are in the country to supportPresident Ange-Félix Patassé, following the attempted coup d’état on 25 October2002. In the last few days, the “Le Citoyen” director has been threatened repeatedly, and an unidentified official has told Gbossokotto that his “arrestis imminent.”Reporters Without Borders has urged the Central African Republic authorities to guarantee the safety of all journalists in the country and ensure that press freedom is respected. The organisation believes that Gbossokotto did nothing more than exercise his right to inform the public, and calls on the government to be especiallyattentive to the respect of journalists’ rights.On 19 November, Reporters Without Borders published an assessment of the press freedom situation in the country since the events of 25 October. Two international radio stations have been censored, a French journalist was expelled without explanation from the airport in Bangui, and several local journalists have been threatened. The organisation has previously asked the authorities to see to it that local journalists who ask for better protection be provided with it.

Raising awareness and starting the conversation about breast cancer awareness is really important not only to me as a female firefighter, but to the community,” said Pasadena Fire Fighter and Pasadena Goes Pink Organizer Danae La Trobe.A team of approximately 25 volunteers and firefighters set out on the intersections walking across the busy streets and donned their highly visible “turnouts” uniforms and a pink boots ready to be filled with independent donations.The passerby’s in Pasadena have been extremely generous. Our firefighters have been walking up and down the streets asking for donations and it’s just been a great event today,” said La Trobe.One hundred percent of donations received go into a special fund that provides breast cancer patients and survivors in the community with services who cannot afford them.“We’re asking for donations to donate to our charity which is Huntington Hospital’s Jim and Eleanor Randall Breast Center,” said La Trobe.The PFD raised $20,000 last year through a series of events with primary funding from direct donation and merchandise sales and through a partnership with California Pizza Kitchen that hosts a side-by-side serving fundraiser event.“This year we hope to increase our sales,” said La Trobe.To find out more about Pasadena Goes Pink, visit https://www.facebook.com/pasadena.pink?fref=ts Business News Subscribe Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Your email address will not be published.

Poetry readings setFort Worth poet featured in PBPS event

first_img Noted Fort Worth poet Michelle Hartman will read from her work at a free 7 p.m. May 4 event sponsored by the Permian Basin Poetry Society. Hartman, Loretta Diane Walker and Cynthia Ruby will read in the J. Conrad Dunagan Library’s Lecture Hall at the University of Texas Permian Basin. PBPS Treasurer Kat Copeland said Hartman is a political science graduate of Texas Wesleyan University and a distinguished alumna of Tarrant County College whose poetry collections are titled “Wanton Disarray,” “First Night” and “Doors.” “Michelle’s works are focused on at-risk youth, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, the homeless, the hospitalized, the mentally ill, naturalists, environmentalists, the disabled, prisoners, teachers, teenagers and veterans,” Copeland said. “They are truth masked as humor.” She said Walker, UTPB’s 2016 commencement speaker, will have her fourth poetry collection, “Ode to My Mother’s Voice and Other Questions,” published this summer by the Lamar University Literary Press. Copeland said Ruby is a master of the Japanese verse form haiku. “Cynthia published the poetry collection ‘Rubies from the Heart,’” she said. “She is also a painter, performance artist, film aficionado, musician and supporter of local and underground artists.” TAGS  Facebook Twitter Twitter Facebook Pinterest Poetry readings setFort Worth poet featured in PBPS eventcenter_img Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Local News WhatsApp WhatsApp Previous articleBOYS HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER: Odessa High vs. Euless TrinityNext article041719_Mudbug_WILD Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more

Estate agency claims ‘world first’ as it embeds revolutionary viewings tech

first_imgAn estate agency in Kidderminster has claimed to be the first in the world to integrate a new technology that has chopped the world up into three-by-three metre squares each with a unique name.Called What3Words it has until now largely been taken up by rescue services, but 52-year-old estate agent Andrew Hipkiss says his estate agency is the first on the planet to use the tech to help buyers find hard-to-pinpoint rural properties for viewings.Hipkiss, who runs three-branch Midlands agency Walton and Hipkiss, says he’s been interested in how the app could work for estate agents for some time.“We know how unreliable a postcode is, especially in rural areas. They often take you to a field,” he says.For sale board“This app can show you the exact location of a front door in a block of flats, where the parking space is, exactly where to put up a for sale board.“We are the first in the world, but this is going to escalate, especially when people download it and see the benefits.”What3Words was founded in 2013 by four London-based businessmen but is only now beginning to gain traction outside of the emergency rescue sector.That is how Hipkiss came across the proprietary geocode system, as it is officially known – in his spare time he works for the Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA).But his company is not quite the first to use the system within the industry – in December DezRez signed up to offer the service as a bolt-on to its property software platform.what3words Andrew Hipkiss Walton & Hipkiss dezrez February 9, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
