News – Buzzez Fri, 11 Jun 2021 18:04:07 +0000 en-US hourly 1 News – Buzzez 32 32 The first tropical system to impact the United States could occur next week. NHC is closely monitoring Fri, 11 Jun 2021 17:26:00 +0000 A currently disorganized area of ​​low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to be monitored, especially along the Gulf Coast until the end of next week.

“Slow further development of this system is possible as it drifts north-west to north,” said the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

Right now, there is only a 20% chance of it turning into something tropical in the next 5 days, according to the NHC, and a 30% chance of developing in the next 7 days. according to other forecasters.

Both European and American computer forecasting models have this possible storm developing very slowly.

But it will be worth watching, especially mid-week along the Gulf Coast, as both models suggest a northward trajectory with the system.

The US forecast model for June 18, 2021.

If this forecast holds true, it would potentially make it the first storm of the 2021 season to hit the United States.

“The location of this potential low is exactly what we think of as the typical June formation area,” says CNN meteorologist Chad Myers.

Storm could enter a more development-friendly environment next week.

If this storm has a name, it will be called Bill. We already had Ana, which formed near Bermuda on May 22.

CPC predicts another above-average hurricane season

The Climate Prediction Center predicts another busy year in the Atlantic Basin. They predict between 13 and 20 named storms, 6 to 10 hurricanes and 3 to 5 major hurricanes, which are category 3 or higher.

In an average season we see 14 named storms, 7 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes.

The 2020 season was unprecedented. We had 30 named storms of which 11 made landfall in the United States. Fourteen were hurricanes and 7 became major hurricanes.

The hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30.

Under fire from the residence, Eric Adams goes on the offensive Thu, 10 Jun 2021 23:04:21 +0000

This last take was how Roberto Martinez, bus driver and former police officer, saw it. At the bus depot along with other members of Local 100 of the Transportation Workers Union, he called the candidate a “true and blue New Yorker.”

“It doesn’t matter,” he said of the residency issue. “If you’re in Manhattan, you can see New Jersey. If that’s the best they have, forget it. The President of the United States lives in Washington, DC That doesn’t mean he doesn’t represent the people of Washington, DC and the people of New Hampshire. If he wants to go spend the weekend in Jersey with his girlfriend, I won’t mind.

Election law experts said the law was on Mr. Adams’ side.

The law of the State governing residence states that “residence” means a “place where a person has a fixed, permanent and principal domicile and where he, wherever he is temporarily, still intends to return”.

Courts have generally allowed candidates to have two residences, and they can choose one as their “political home,” said Martin Connor, an election lawyer who served as a state senator for 30 years until 2008.

Mr Connor, who does not work for any of the mayoral candidates, said the courts have generally been generous with the candidates, sometimes allowing people to claim a place of residence even if they only stay there two nights per week. He said Mr. Adams’ choice to stay with his girlfriend in New Jersey “does not preclude his Brooklyn residence”.

“Usually you are OK if you have an apartment, a bed, a refrigerator, especially if you own the building,” he said.

Mayor Bill de Blasio also from Mr. Adams’ side.

“I have known Eric Adams for decades,” he said during his daily press briefing on Thursday. “He’s a Brooklynite. He’s a New Yorker. He served the city in several capacities. I just don’t see a problem here.

Marine major general sanctioned for fatal training accident in 2020 Thu, 10 Jun 2021 02:47:44 +0000

The Marine Corps disciplined a two-star general for his role in the sinking of an amphibious assault vehicle off the coast of California in July that claimed the lives of a sailor and eight Marines, adding to a list growing number of senior officers confronted with the consequences of the accident.

The service announced on Wednesday that Major General Robert F. Castellvi, who commanded the 1st Marine Division at Camp Pendleton, Calif., at the time of the fatal training accident, and then became the Corps Inspector General, would be permanently removed from his post as Inspector General.

General Castellvi was “personally and formally advised” by the commander of the Marine Corps, General David H. Berger, said Major Jorge A. Hernandez, spokesman for the Marines, noting that such action generally prevents a officer to be promoted further. or by keeping command.

The measures taken by the direction of the Marines against General Castellvi were reported earlier by The San Diego Union-Tribune.
