    A magnitude 7.5 earthquake shook Mexico's central Pacific coast on Monday, setting off an earthquake and tsunami alarm in the capital. Buildings swayed and workers were evacuated in downtown Mexico City - just moments after people gathered to commemorate the anniversary of two other deadly quakes. The horrifying murmurs come exactly five years to the day after a deadly tremor killed 370 people in the same region.  There were no immediate reports of damage from the quake that hit at 1.05pm local time, according to the U.S. Geologic Survey.  Groups of locals hugged and comforted one another in the streets following the mighty tremor - as some had spent the morning attending memorials for those who had died in previous seismic events.   Devastated people gather outside after a magnitude 7.5 earthquake was felt in Mexico City on Monday Two women cry and comfort one another following the earthquake - which struck on the same day as two others in the region A paramedic gives medical assistance following the quake.

    (CNN)Nearly 10 million people across Arizona, New Mexico and western Texas are under flood watches Saturday, including Phoenix, Albuquerque and El Paso. "The stage is set for southern Arizona and New Mexico to potentially receive prolific rainfall and widespread flash flooding today," as a low-pressure system brings moist, tropical air to the Southwest in the form of heavy rain and thunderstorms to add to the already active monsoon season across the region, the Weather Prediction Center said early Saturday morning. Widespread rainfall totals of 2 to 3 inches, with locally higher totals of 5 to 7 inches, are forecast across the region -- leading the WPC to issue a level 3 out of 4 "moderate" risk for excessive rainfall ahead of the wet forecast. That could mean widespread flash flooding across the Southwest.

    Tens of millions of Americans face power blackouts this summer as roasting weather, overstretched powerplants and unreliable green energy sources combine to create a perfect storm of problems.   States stretching from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Ocean which are home to tens of millions of Americans could have a hard time producing enough power for their residents this summer. The 'MISO' part of America's power grid - whose full name is the Midcontinent Independent System Operator is at greatest risk of a large-scale outage. That warning was given by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), which released a map showing Michigan, most of Indiana, most of Illinois, and Wisconsin were in trouble. Also at the highest risk are Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and a small part of East Texas. That high-risk classification means that the existing power grid is 'potentially insufficient to meet peak load during both normal and extreme conditions,' according to NERC.  Every state that sits further west of that area is at an elevated risk, according to NERC. That means power plants should have sufficient resources...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Red tide is back in the waters off of Florida’s southwest coast, making birds sick and killing fish, according to a state environmental agency update. While satellite imagery isn’t picking up the toxic algal blooms, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said it’s been detected in the waters between Sanibel Island and Marco Island. Officials said recent tests that were done on sea birds alerted officials about the bloom. “Our first indication of this particular event was we had over a dozen cormorants that came into a wildlife rehab center on Sanibel and we tested blood from those cormorants and all of them tested positive for the red tide toxin,” Gil McRae, director of the agency’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, told commission members during a virtual meeting. McRae said it was a late-season bloom, and that winter weather could likely break it up, but in the meantime the state, local governments, and volunteers are trying to identify what areas are being affected. “We are ramping up every available resource to respond to this red...

    MIAMI (AP) — Eta has regained hurricane strength with 75 mph winds off southwest Florida coast. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written or redistributed.
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Tropical Storm Eta is just off the coast of Southwest Florida, bringing strong wind, heavy rain and dangerous storm surge across portions of South Florida and the Florida Keys. Eta made landfall in Lower Matecumbe Key in the Florida Keys as a strong Tropical Storm with 65 mph winds. As of 4:00 a.m. Monday, Eta was about 45 miles north-northwest of Key West and about 65 miles south of Naples. Maximum sustained winds are 65 mph with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next day or so and Eta is forecast to become a hurricane when it moves over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico. TRACKING TROPICAL STORM ETA Eta is moving toward the west-northwest near 13 mph. A west to west- southwest motion with some reduction in forward speed is expected later Monday and Monday night.

On the forecast track, the center of Eta will gradually pull away from the Florida Keys and south Florida Monday and be over...
    (CNN)It's mobile radar to the rescue, and not a moment too soon.This is the story of how a moving research radar will be helping the Lake Charles, Louisiana, National Weather Service (NWS) outpost, whose radar was broken during Hurricane Laura. The Lake Charles NWS office and radar are both located at the Lake Charles Regional Airport, which also took a significant hit during Laura. The radar dome sits on top of an over 60 foot tower, and since wind speeds are often stronger the higher you go up, this likely led to its demise.The problem is, the radar equipment is still not fixed, and another hurricane is on its way to the same area of Louisiana. September 25th, 2020 -- As of 8:00 AM this morning, NWS Lake Charles has resumed full operational responsibility for the region including forecasts, warnings and the general weather watch (minus the LCH radar which still needs a bit of work as you can see).

    OAK FOREST, Ill. (WLS) -- An Oak Forest High School teacher got a big surprise from Southwest Airlines after going the extra mile for his students.Mike Brown wanted to make remote learning more engaging for his students. So for a full week, he taught classes from historic sites along the East Coast, including Civil War battefields and Independence Hall in Philadelphia.Southwest Airlines heard about this and they decided to surprise Brown with 40,000 rapid rewards miles so he can continue his travels."I'm really glad that I was able to do it and I work at a place that allows us to be that way and that has been one of the great blessings of my life," Brown said.Not only did he have near-perfect attendance during that week of travel, the school says even parents and siblings were tuning in to watch.
    MARCO ISLAND, Florida — Tropical Storm Sally formed just off the coast of Florida and is forecast to reach hurricane strength before hitting the Gulf Coast. Sally, which began the day as Tropical Depression 19, intensified on Saturday into tropical storm strength and is packing maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. The system is located about 35 miles south-southeast of Naples, Florida, and moving westward at 7 mph. (National Hurricane Center) Parts of the Florida Panhandle have been placed under a tropical storm watch, given that the path of the storm is expected to move northwest into the Gulf of Mexico and further strengthen. “Interests elsewhere along the northern Gulf Coast should monitor the progress of this system. Tropical storm or hurricane watches, and storm surge watches, could be issued for a portion of that area later today,” the National Hurricane Service said in an advisory. Sally is the earliest named “S” storm in recorded history and another sign of just how historic the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season has been. There are only...
    TAIPEI (Reuters) - Multiple Chinese fighter jets entered airspace to Taiwan's southwest on Wednesday, said the island's defence ministry, describing it as a destabilising action which threatened regional peace. Taiwan, claimed by China as its own territory, has repeatedly complained of Chinese military activities near the island, including regular air force patrols. China says such drills demonstrate its resolve to protect its sovereignty. China has in the last few weeks mounted numerous exercises up and down its coast and near Taiwan. Taiwan's Defence Ministry said the Chinese Su-30 and J-10 fighters had entered Taiwan's "response zone" to its southwest on Wednesday morning, adding that multiple aircraft were involved. "The Defence Ministry solemnly condemns the Chinese Communist's unilateral actions that damage regional peace and stability," it added. Taiwan's armed forces are able to respond quickly and appropriately to such movements, the military said, calling on people not to be alarmed. Taiwan's Liberty Times newspaper said Taiwan issued 24 verbal warnings over the radio for the Chinese aircraft to leave. Taiwan is currently carrying out live fire weapons tests off its southeast...
