    The relentless drought plaguing the US could steal Christmas.  Tree farms across the US have been forced to close before Christmas due to a drought that has killed tens of thousands of trees The abnormally low rainfall has killed tens of thousands, if not more, of evergreen conifers this year and the trees left will cost, on average, nearly $100 - a 20 percent markup from last year. From New England to Texas, tree-cutting farms across the nation have been forced to close in the past few weeks due to this summer's drought that impacted growth and stressed mature trees until their needles turned brown. One farm in Kansas, Prairie Pines Christmas Tree Farm, has not closed its doors, but owner Kip Scott told KWCH-DT that he planted thousands of trees earlier this year but lost 75 percent to the drought. The price increase is not just due to a lack of supply, as inflation has forced growers to pay 50 percent more for supplies like fertilizers. RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Most of England...
    The sole survivor of a freak lightning strike that killed three people near the White House on August 4 has finally shared her side of the story, admitting she is suffering from survivor’s guilt and doesn’t know why she survived. Amber Escudero-Kontostathis, 28, is the only survivor of the freak weather event that saw six bolts of lightning strike the group in under half a second. The strike killed Brooks Lambertson, 29, a VP at City National Bank, and James and Donna Mueller, 76 and 75, who were visiting the capital for their 56th wedding anniversary. The group hid under a tree during a summer storm which was subsequently hit by a bolt of lightning, with that flash caught on camera. Escudero-Kontostathis, who was left with burns after the lightning traveled through her body, revealed her guilt about surviving in a new interview with Good Morning America, adding: 'I don't know why I survived.'  ‘I don’t feel good about being the only survivor, that’s for sure,' she continued. Amber Escudero-Kontostathis had been planning on celebrating her 28th birthday on the...

    ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (WJZ) — Tree experts say Monday’s rain and wind compromised weak trees across the area. Jose Mendez of Access Tree Services says weather elements can uproot trees. READ MORE: Do I Need To Wear A Mask? TSA, BWI, MTA & Rideshare Services Lift Mandates“The rain will saturate the ground and all the roots will soften, and then the wind comes over and hits the trees,” Mendez said. “And that’s when they uproot and go over the house.” An oak tree on Holly Drive West in Annapolis crashed into a home Monday, killing a man and injuring a woman. Mendez said some areas—like Severna Park and Annapolis—have sandy soil, which can lead to trees being uprooted.

    As white settlers made their way west, so did the word “squaw.” Eventually, it took root in nearly 100 California place names, possibly more — Squaw Creek, Squaw Peak, Squaw Hollow, Squaw Flat. For a historic ski resort that hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics and was once known as Squaw Valley, the reckoning came last year. Visitors are now greeted by signs welcoming them to Palisades Tahoe. In another Squaw Valley — a landscape of rolling hills about halfway between Fresno and Kings Canyon National Park — the debate over whether to adopt a new name has pitted Native American activists against a white county supervisor. At the heart of the battle is what “squaw” means and who decides whether it’s offensive. Roman Rain Tree, a member of the Dunlap Band of Mono Indians, is leading a campaign to change the name of the land where his ancestors lived for generations from Squaw Valley to Nuum Valley. Nuum means “the people” in the Western Mono language. Fresno County Supervisor Nathan Magsig, who moved to the area from...
    Roman Rain Tree’s mother was gravely ill with cancer when he asked her if she thought their Native American tribe would gain federal recognition while their ancestral homeland in Fresno County bore a name many consider offensive. Gina Charley said no but levied a challenge for her son: “If you think you can change it, then show them the pen is mightier than the sword,” Rain Tree said Friday. Though the 2013 conversation was one of their last — Charley died the following month — Rain Tree was inspired to fight to alter the name of Squaw Valley, Calif., a town of about 3,600 people. On Jan. 1, Rain Tree — on behalf of the coalition Rename S-Valley Fresno County — submitted a proposal to change the name to the Board on Geographic Names, a federal body tasked with naming geographic places. About two months earlier, in November, Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland declared the term “squaw” derogatory and instructed the board to implement procedures to remove the name from federal usage. Under the secretarial orders, a task force...
    Scientists studying the Ebo rain forest in Cameroon have named a newly identified tree in honor of actor, environmental hardliner, and superyacht enthusiast Leonardo DiCaprio. The tree, a member of the ylang ylang plant family, is a tropical evergreen with yellow flowers growing from its lower trunk and will now be known by the scientific name Uvariopsis dicaprio. The scientists chose to honor DiCaprio for his efforts to stop the Cameroonian government from allowing the bio-diverse, but isolated Ebo rain forest to be opened for clearcut logging. “We think he was crucial in helping to stop the logging of the Ebo forest,” Martin Cheek, a botanist for the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, told the BBC on Thursday. The Ebo forest is one of the few mostly untouched rain forests in the world and is home to so many plants and animals that scientists still have not identified them all. Cheek went on to note that scientists have identified dozens of new plant and animal species over the last decade and may are endangered or already extinct. “There are still thousands of...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – An unrelenting rainstorm delivered a pounding downpour and powerful winds on Monday Erica Torres decided to brave the elements anyway, with a trip to the grocery store. READ MORE: Del Paso Boulevard Closes Due To Flooding“It’s intense,” Torres said. “I wouldn’t normally come out because it’s pretty bad, yeah it’s raining really good.” The winds and rain are so bad gusts left power lines in a precarious position in Carmichael at the intersection of Manzanita and Windmill. The lines dangled dangerously in the night and left Margarite Brian’s neighborhood in the dark. “Our lights got turned out,” Brian said. “We just wanted to come out and see what was going on out here because they had the streets all blocked off.” Video from earlier in the day showed clearer damage. A gust uprooted a massive tree, sending it straight into a power pole, the impact leaving hundreds of SMUD customers without power.

    (CNN)For a state that produces more Christmas trees than anywhere else in the country, Oregon Christmas tree growers are struggling after Mother Nature put on a show in 2021. Oregon produces roughly 40% of the nation's Christmas tree supply, according to the National Christmas Tree Association, a trade association representing hundreds of tree farms and other affiliated businesses.This past summer's heat waves have resulted in losses of Christmas tree crops, as well as an increase in prices."I had 30% mortality, but every single seedling is damaged without question," says Tom Norby, who owns Trout Creek Tree Farm and is trying to overcome one of his toughest years.Norby is the president of the Oregon Christmas Tree Growers Association and says some farms across his state have experienced a total loss. Read More"There are literally fields with hundreds of acres of dead seedlings. Just 100% mortality across the entire field. If you produce a million trees a year, you don't have time to deal with that," says Norby. Oregon's Christmas tree seedlings match the color of the dry dirt they are planted...

    MARTINEZ (KPIX) — Sunday was a day — and a storm — to remember in the East Bay. It started with wind whipping through trees in Walnut Creek. Then the rain got serious. Travel on the highways became treacherous, keeping the CHP and tow trucks busy as they cleared one wreck after another. “It’s really scary, people are not driving safe like they’re supposed to,” said San Pablo resident Penny Syharath. The rain may have been universally felt but how it affected people was more a matter of chance. In El Sobrante, a massive tree was uprooted, knocking out power to an entire neighborhood. PG&E was called in to de-energize the downed power lines when the tree snapped a power pole like a matchstick. Under the tree were three vehicles, a minivan, pickup and SUV. Barbara Herrera felt the concussion from next door. “It was like, wow! I thought a plane crashed, it was that loud,” Herrera said. She has troubles of her own. Her entire downstairs floor was flooded. The rain continued, coming down in sheets. It seemed like...

    (CNN)It's pretty natural for people to take a look at the radar first thing in the morning to check on the morning commute, but for millions, what looked like light drizzle over Germantown was actually a swarm of cicadas... what?That's right, the radar imagery from the Washington, DC, area showed a patch of green just northwest of the city. What could have easily been mistaken for rain, wasn't. The big, black-winged insects that have emerged after their 17-year slumber were in such large numbers, they showed up on radar. "While weather radar is very precise, it would likely take hundreds of thousands, if not millions of cicadas to be able to see what we saw yesterday on radar," said CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen.The National Weather Service office in Baltimore/Washington, DC, tweeted this image, that caught a lot of attention over the weekend.Read MoreYou may have noticed a lot of fuzziness (low reflectivity values) on our radar recently.

    DENVER (CBS4) – An unusually cold, wet spring storm will move across Colorado over the next few days with a combination of rain and snow. Heavy snow is expected to fall in the mountains and foothills west of Denver starting Monday. By Tuesday morning the snow level could drop down into Denver, the I-25 urban corridor and onto the adjacent plains. A late snow in May 2019 broke tree limbs around the city, including at Force Elementary in Denver (CBS) May snow in Colorado is heavy and wet, even at the higher elevations. It doesn’t take very much accumulation to cause damage to trees, especially those that may already have some leaves or a lot of old, weak growth on them. The current forecast calls for several inches of snow to fall in elevations above 7,500 feet. Some locations in the foothills outside of Denver could see more than a foot of snow. In the city of Denver and along the I-25 corridor snow totals will vary widely over short distances due to subtle changes in elevation, but some...
    (CNN)After a calm night, Tuesday is expected to bring severe weather to the Southeast US, which has already been pummeled by deadly tornadoes. A storm system moved out of Oklahoma and Texas -- where more than 36,000 people were without power early Tuesday morning, according to PowerOutages.us -- and into the Lower Ohio Valley and Tennessee area. The evening brought diminished downpours and wind gusts, but daybreak threatens to bring severe weather again.Large hail, damaging wind gusts and tornadoes are forecast to impact the areas from the Ohio River Valley down to the Gulf Coast. As the day progresses, the heat and humidity that accompanies the month of May in the Deep South will help to reinvigorate the atmosphere and areas along the Gulf Coast from East Texas to the Florida Panhandle could see strong to severe storms pop up until the arrival of the severe gusts that come with the advancing front. Areas from Central Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi are more likely to see impacts from hail and damaging straight-line winds rather than tornadoes. But tornadoes are still...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A chance of rain is moving the annual lighting of South Carolina's Christmas tree inside the Statehouse and because of COVID-19 the public won't be able to attend in person. The ceremony starts at 5:30 p.m. Sunday and South Carolina Education Television will show it on air and online. The governor typically lights the Christmas tree in front of the Statehouse from the Capitol's steps with hundreds of spectators and several choirs and other performers. But COVID-19 already cut down on attendance, and the 30% chance of rain sent the ceremony to the second floor lobby of the Statehouse. The state Christmas tree arrived in downtown Columbia earlier this month and crews have spent weeks decorating it. This is the 54th year South Carolina's governor has turned on the lights on the state Christmas tree. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
