Dead fin whale washes up in Bolinas, California - 5th for the region since March

fin whalw
Almost a year to the day since a spectacular 79-foot blue whale washed up on Agate Beach, a 58-foot fin whale wound up on nearby Brighton Beach after meeting the same fate: death by ship strike. On May 22, the dead fin whale was spotted hung up on Duxbury Reef, according to a letter by Bolinas resident Kent Khtikian published in the Hearsay News last week.

Researchers with the Marine Mammal Center and California Academy of Sciences found the whale's skull, vertebrae and ribs fractured. It was one of two fin whales, which are among the fastest species in the ocean, that washed up in the Bay Area in the same week, bringing the total to five since March.

The species is listed as endangered, with the population in the North Pacific at about 1,600.

At least three people were killed — two in landslide and one in flood — and over 1.5 lakh people were affected by the first wave of floods that have hit Assam this year even as 370 villages in seven districts continued to be under water for the second consecutive day on Thursday.

Assam State Disaster Management officials said that flood waters have affected 370 villages in seven districts including Hojai, Cachar, Golaghat, Hailakandi, Karimganj, Karbi Anglong (East) and West Karbi Anglong districts. The flood waters have also affected large tracks of agricultural in different flood affected districts — some with standing crops.

Storm drops sea creatures on coastal Chinese city qingdao
The waterfront city of Qingdao, in eastern China, was struck by a severe storm Wednesday marked by strong winds, thunderstorms and hail, causing serious flooding and a number of broken trees. That wasn't all though: Chinese social media has also been flooded with an influx of images of sea creatures dumped into the city with the storm.

Photos circulating the web in China show people's windshields struck by everything from falling tree limbs to falling shrimps, starfish and even an octopus.

CLIMATE, EARTH, OCEANS Antarctica has lost about 3 trillion metric tons of ice since 1992 Ice loss is accelerating and that's helped raise the global sea level by about 8 millimeters

BY LAUREL HAMERS 1:23PM, JUNE 13, 2018

Antarctica is losing ice at an increasingly rapid pace. In just the last five years, the frozen continent has shed ice nearly three times faster on average than it did over the previous 20 years.

An international team of scientists has combined data from two dozen satellite surveys in the most comprehensive assessment of Antarctica's ice sheet mass yet. The conclusion: The frozen continent lost an estimated 2,720 billion metric tons of ice from 1992 to 2017, and most of that loss occurred in recent years, particularly in West Antarctica. Before 2012, the continent shed ice at a rate of 76 billion tons each year on average, but from 2012 to 2017, the rate increased to 219 billion tons annually.

Combined, all that water raised the global sea level by an average of 7.6 millimeters, the researchers report in the June 14 Nature. About two-fifths of that rise occurred in the last five years, an increase in severity that is helping scientists understand how the ice sheet is responding to climate change.

"When we place that against the [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's] sea level projections, prior to this Antarctica was tracking the low end of sea-level-rise projections," says study coauthor Andrew Shepherd, an earth scientist at the University of Leeds in England. "Now it's tracking the upper end."

This is the moment a freak gust of wind sends a set of Porta-Potty flying into the air.

People were forced to dive for cover after a huge blast of wind whipped through a park in Commerce City, Colorado.

As they attempted to take cover by lying on the ground, the wind whisked two portable toilets straight into the air and flattened a nearby tent.
