Death of millions of bees triggers natural disaster in Croatia

Dead bees
Croatian authorities declared a natural disaster in the country's northernmost province after tens of millions of bees died from a suspected case of pesticide poisoning.

Beekeepers discovered carpets of dead swarms last week in the region of Medzimurje, near the border with Hungary. About 1,150 hives were wiped out, with about a third of the area's apiarists sustaining losses, Croatian Beekeeping Association Zeljko Vrbos said by phone Wednesday.

"We suspect pesticide is the cause," Vrbos said. "But the investigation is still ongoing, so nothing can be said for certain."

Agriculture Minister Marija Vuckovic told broadcaster RTL that an analysis had shown the insects didn't die of disease, but she refused to declare a cause until authorities conclude their probe.

The natural disaster declaration allows the state to pay compensation for agricultural losses. The Adriatic nation is home to about 10,000 beekeepers, whose 500,000 hives produce some 8,000 tons of honey a year, Vrbos said.

Volcano in northeast China may be 'recharging' for eruption, study finds

Wei Mountain is part of the Wudalianchi volcanic field in Heilongjiang province.
A volcano in northeast China could be "recharging" for an eruption, with a vast amount of magma believed to be rising up underneath it, according to a team of geophysicists.

The researchers say they discovered two huge magma chambers under Wei Mountain in the Wudalianchi volcanic field in Heilongjiang, near the border with Russia and North Korea. Their modelling suggests the chambers dwarf the volcano, which is 100 metres (328 feet) tall and 5km (3.1 miles) wide.

It was a surprise discovery, since the volcano last erupted more than 500,000 years ago and was considered extinct. Geologists have been more focused on Changbai, or Paektu Mountain, to the south, whose eruption in 946AD was one of the most powerful volcanic events ever recorded, its fallout zone spanning from Japan to Greenland.

But the volcanic fields of Changbai and Wei "would be linked to some degree", according to the peer-reviewed study, published in the journal Geology this month.


'Knock you out of your seat': Loud booming noises heard in northeast Ohio communities

Residents and business owners in normally-quiet North Royalton reported hearing a series of loud noises.

"If you're in the building at the time, it'll actually knock you out of your seat, it's such a large boom," said Steve Schwarz, owner of The Jump Yard, a family amusement center on York Road.

He said the source of at least some of the loud noise complaints is a utility pole on York. It's blown fuses a dozen times in the past year, each time knocking out power to his business, Schwarz said.

"It's not a bomb or anything, that some people are fearing when they hear those type noises. But it's definitely having a dramatic effect on our business," he said.
