Dozens of Brits were among those moved from the �three-star Tropical Park hotel, in El Arenal, Majorca, when bosses ordered the evacuation on Friday night. A German girl of 15 had been taken ill in a fifth-floor room near to where a Russian died two weeks ago. Police said the girl had classic symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. A French tourist is also now �recovering after falling ill in the same room as the Russian three days later. Officers and health and safety officials are investigating the cases. Hotel boss Pedro Mas claimed tests on the girl did not show carbon monoxide. He said gas was found in the room where the Russian died, but not in the rest of the hotel. He added: “The hotel is closed at the moment.”


Earthquake - Asia - Japan

Description:

Early morning on Sunday, local time, a quake measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale hit the Fukushima prefecture. The quake was centered about 60 miles south/southeast of Fukushima City. There were no reports of major damage. Also, no tsunami warning was issued. Officials say that aftershocks continue in the region with often multiple 4.0 or higher aftershocks felt each day. Area fire and rescue organizations say that 7 people were hurt during the latest quake, 1 person in Sendai, 2 people in Koriyama, and another 4 people from Ibaraki prefecture. Officials at the Fukushima nuclear plant say the nuclear plant sustained no new damage from today’s quake. New concerns have been raised over the safety of workers at the Fukushima nuclear plant. The old exposure limit of 100 millisieverts was raised to 250 millisieverts. A new report about nuclear plant workers who were exposed to less than 100 millisieverts of radiation, there are documented cases of at least 10 who have or had cancer or a form of cancer. In recent reports, a number of workers at the Fukushima nuclear plant have been said to be exposed to more than 250 millisieverts. In communities destroyed or damaged by the March 11th tsunami, flies are becoming a big problem. Swarms of flies are irritating residents who struggle to cleanup and rebuild their communities. The fly problem stems from the massive amounts of debris, wreckage and dead fish still littering the damaged coastal communities. In mid July, testing was done in several coastal communities, to see how bad the fly problem was. In the hard-hit city of Rikuzentakata, over 300 flies were caught in a trap within a span of just 20 minutes. In the devastated city of Kesennuma, the numbers were ten times that.

The tornado hit the city of Blagoveshchensk, which is the administrative center of Amur Oblast in Russia's far-east. Video footage uploaded to YouTube showed how the relatively small tornado roared through parts of the city, causing light flashes and debris being thrown into the air. Several vehicles, including trucks, were overturned by the force of the tornado. Power lines were also destroyed in some areas, causing power outages to parts of the city with a population of nearly 215,000 people. As a result of the widespread damage, local officials declared a state of emergency. RIA Novosti cited emergency officials as saying that one person was killed while 28 others were injured. Significant tornadoes in Europe are rare, but there have been several disasters involving tornadoes in Russia in modern history. In June 1904, at least 30 people were killed when two tornadoes moved through Moscow, while three powerful tornadoes in June 1984 killed more than 400 people in Belyanitsky, Ivanovo and Balino in western Russia.

Description:

All 167 crewmen and passengers of a ship were rescued safely before the vessel sank off the coast of Iloilo Sunday morning. Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) spokesman Lt. Commander Algier Ricafrente said all the crewmen and passengers of MV Trans Asia Malaysia were safely transferred to other vessels after the ship captain issued an abandon-ship order shortly before the vessel capsized. “Maayos at supervised ang transfer. The 107 passengers and 60 crewmen are all safe,” Ricafrente told Manila Bulletin in a telephone in-terview. “Patuloy pa rin naman ginagalugad ng Coast Guard team natin yung area para sigurado tayo na wala talagang nasawi or nasaktan dahil sa paglubog ng barko,” he added. Reports reaching the PCG main office bared that the MV Trans Asia Malaysia sank at around 8:50 a.m. Sunday as big waves tossed the vessel off its course four nautical miles off Calabasas Island in Ajuy town, 87 km northeast of Iloilo City. The ship, operated by Trans-Asia Shipping Lines, Inc., left Cebu at around 6 p.m. Saturday and was expected to arrive in Iloilo at 8 a.m. But at about 4:55 a.m. Sunday, Ricafrente said, ship captain Romualdo Geraldizo radioed the Coast Guard that the ship was having “difficulties” while they were near Culasi on Panay Island.

Ricafrente said that the PCG immediately deployed its rescue helicopter and two of its vessels – the BRP Edsa and the BRP Corregidor – to Masbate to assist the troubled passenger ship. But waves, though moderate, continued to pound the ship and caused it to list by 35 degrees on its starboard (right side), Ricafrente said. He said Geraldizo decided to issue a distress signal and abandon-ship order shortly before 6 a.m. The passengers and crew members were transferred to ships and boats in the vicinity of the vessel which responded to the distress call. These include the MV Filipinas Cebu and MT Fil Visayas. Ten crew members including the ship captain stayed behind until they transferred to a lifeboat shortly before the boat sank at 8:50 a.m., according to Ricafrente. Based on their account, Ricafrente said 103 passengers rescued by MT Fil Visayas were taken to Bacolod City, Negros Occidental while 42 survivors were loaded on MV Filipinas Cebu and taken to Iloilo. The 22 remaining survivors, according to the PCG spokesman, were taken to shore by members of the Bantay-Dagat (sea watchers) on smaller motorized boats. The ship captain told Coast Guard officials that the vessel listed after taking in water when it was battered by strong and big waves.

Description:

A landslide caused by torrential rain crashed into a South Korean mountain resort east of Seoul early on Wednesday, destroying four buildings, including two small hotels, and killing at least 10 people, officials said. Wild weather has battered the peninsula since late Tuesday, causing widespread flooding and transport delays, while the share price of insurers fell on fears that damage costs would run into millions of dollars. At Chuncheon, about 100 km (60 miles) east of Seoul, rescue workers were still sifting through the muddy rubble of the wrecked hotels, restaurant and coffee shop searching for missing people. "We were asleep and suddenly I heard a big sound, and then the ceiling fell down," Lee Beon-seok, a student, told local television. A local resident reported hearing what sounded like train. "And then I heard someone shouting 'help me'. So I went out to see, and I saw a landslide had swept all over the area," she said. Officials said about 20 people were injured when the wall of mud crashed into the buildings near the Soyang River Dam just after midnight. Local media reports said 35 college students and some 40 tourists were staying at the small hotels. Over the past 24 hours 400 mm (16 inches) of rain has been dumped on the capital Seoul, causing flash floods, landslides and bridge closures. A blackout hit the south of the city, suspending train services. Subway stations in Seoul were turned into swimming pools, stranded commuters said. Emergency workers said at least four people were killed in other accidents related to the severe weather. The weather bureau said more heavy rain was forecast for the next 48 hours. There was no immediate reports of damage to crops, and flights and shipping were not affected.

Description:

The Canary Islands Government has said it is monitoring an earthquake swarm on the small island of El Hierro where in excess of 400 tremors of low magnitude have been recorded in the past four days. On Friday, the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Government Security Canary convened the first ever meeting of the Steering Committee and Volcanic Monitoring, reflected in the Specific Plan Protection Civil and Emergency for Volcanic Risk, given what it described “the significant increase in seismic activity”.A statement (translated from Spanish) issued following the meeting outlined:

“This committee met this morning (Friday) at the headquarters of the Directorate General Security and Emergency Tenerife, established after the assessment of information gathered from seismic and volcanological last July 17 by the National Geographic Institute (IGN) and Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands, the situation is total normal for the green light for the information population, activating mechanisms for monitoring and oversight needed to coordinate the actions of self civil population and information contained in the Plan.” “According to data provided by the seismic monitoring station IGN’s located in Valverde, one can conclude that from the noon on July 17 there has been a significant increase of low magnitude seismic activity in the municipality of Border of the island of El Hierro. To improve the location of this activity, has deployed a seismic network densification operational since July 21 has helped increase the number of earthquakes located, and can be viewed at Web www.ign.es”, the statement added. El Hierro, a 278.5 km2 island, is situated in the most southwestern extreme of the Canaries. The origins of the island date back some 100 million years. After three successive eruptions, and consequent accumulations, the island emerged from the ocean as an imposing triangular pyramid crowned by a volcano more than 2,000 metres high. The volcanic activity, principally at the convergence of the three ridges, resulted in the continual expansion of the island. A mere 50,000 years ago, as a result of seismic tremors which produced massive landslides, a giant piece of the island cracked off, crashed down into the ocean and scattered along the seabed.

This landslide of more than 300km3 gave rise to the impressive amphitheatre of the El Golfo valley and at the same time caused a tsunami that most likely rose over 100 metres high and probably reached as far as the American coast. According to ElHierro.com: “Although over 200 years have elapsed since the last eruption, El Hierro has the largest number of volcanoes in the Canaries with over 500 open sky cones, another 300 covered by the most recent outflows, and some 70 caves and volcanic galleries, notably the Don Justo cave whose collection of channels surpasses 6km in length.”

Description:

Iceland's gotten all the press of late, but there are other volcanoes in the world. One of the more famous ones, Italy's Mount Etna, spent Monday night into Tuesday morning sending up cascading fountains of lava and throwing out car-sized molten rocks. The volcano's southeast crater began to show fractures on the Monday afternoon, says volcanologist Tom Pfeiffer, who leads volcano tours through Volcano Discovery. At just after midnight Tuesday morning it began to mildly erupt and the tour group walked to a viewpoint on the rim of the Valle del Bove. At around 2:30 am the volcano began to send up fountins of lava 1,600 feet into the air, Pfeiffer said via email from Italy. "At the peak of the eruption at around 3 am, the fountains pulsated between an estimated 500-800 m height, with large incandescent bombs visible more than 1 kilometer above the vent and landing behind southeast crater," he wrote. "The fountains gradually decreased by around 4 am and the activity turned into exploding giant lava bubbles, detonating with loud noise, and throwing large bombs up to 1 km in spherical directions above the crater. This activity slowly waned until dawn. While the fountains lasted, the crater wall was completely covered by incandescent lava."
