Strong SO2 steam emissions, some ash venting at Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia
Unrest continues at the volcano. Strong steam emissions, sometimes mixed with light ash continue, accompanied by elevated seismic activity inside the volcano.
 
Manizales observatory reported several episodes of volcanic tremor associated with the movement of fluids and gases and ash emissions.
 
Additionally, tiny rock-fracturing earthquakes were recorded, located mainly under the southwestern, northern and northeastern parts of Arenas crater at depths between 1.8 and 8 km.
 
SO2 emissions remains high and the steam and ash plume reached up to 1500 m above the volcano's summit.

Plane Plunges 13,000ft As Both

Engines Fail

Aviation Alert

A Singapore Airlines passenger plane carrying 194 people dropped 13,000ft after both engines lost power in a "huge storm".

The Airbus A330-300 was three and a half hours into its five-hour flight from Singapore to Shanghai when its Rolls-Royce Trent 772 engines failed at 39,000ft.

The pilots managed to restore power by putting the aircraft into a controlled descent to 26,000ft, before climbing again.

SQ836 continued normally to Shanghai and landed at 10.56pm local time on Saturday, Singapore Airlines said.

It said both engines were "thoroughly inspected" and "no anomalies" were detected.

Singapore Airlines Airbus plane loses power

Aviation experts said it was a "very unusual occurrence" for both engines to lose power.

Singapore Airlines, Airbus and Rolls-Royce are investigating the incident.

"We are not able to provide further information, but we can confirm that the same aircraft was used for the return flight," a Singapore Airlines spokesman said.

"Both engines experienced a temporary loss of power and the pilots followed operational procedures to restore normal operation of the engines."

Industry website Flightradar24 said the plane "lost both engines during the cruise" while flying through a "huge storm" in the South China Sea, off China's south coast.

Rolls-Royce said its engines have an "exceptional record of safety and reliability, established over 20 years".

The British manufacturer is working with the airline to provide support and technical assistance, a spokesman said.

Greg Waldron, Asia managing editor of aviation information firm Flightglobal, said the incident was a "very unusual occurrence" that "highlights the requirements of rigorous pilot training".

"Generally these engines are extremely reliable and they work continuously for 13-14 hours a day for months and years," he said.

Passengers appeared not to have posted about the incident on social media, meaning they may have been unaware of the engine problem.

An unnamed pilot with a Southeast Asian airline told Reuters: "We do occasionally lose power in one engine for various reasons, but you hardly ever lose both engines.

"If that happens, you follow the procedures in your checklist and try to restart the engines. The pilots successfully did that here."

Last week, Airbus warned of a technical bug potentially affecting the engines of its A400M military transporters.

It was discovered during an internal test after one crashed in Spain, killing four people.

Singapore Airlines has 29 Airbus A330-300s in its fleet, as well as 19 Airbus A380-800 superjumbos.

100,000 dead fish found in a canal in Nagoya, Japan
Nagoya government officials said Thursday that around 100,000 dead fish had been found in a canal between May 3 and May 6.
 
The Nagoya Port Association said dead gizzard shad and gobies were found in an 8-kilometer-long stretch of canal between Nakagawa and Minato wards, Fuji TV reported.
 
A similar incident occurred two years ago, killing 230,000 fish.
 
Experts suggested one reason the fish may have died is because sludge at the bottom of the canal depleted the amount of oxygen in the water.
 
Residents complained Thursday about the smell of dead fish. The cleanup is expected to take another day.

4 MILLION birds to be killed in new outbreak of avian flu in Iowa, USA

600,000 birds killed due to avian flu
in Belize
While poultry farmers continue to suffer massive losses due to an outbreak of bird flu, the Belize Poultry Association says it is resisting the temptation to increase prices.
 
But losses are mounting and Ministry of Health officials estimate than more than 600,000 birds have had to be destroyed.
 
BPA spokesman Orlando Habet told The Reporter this week that the full extent of the loss has yet to be determined because the Ministry of Agriculture continues to seize and destroy birds found to be infected.
 
“We are hoping for increased production from the communities in the north such as Blue Creek, Ship Yard, and Little Belize, to make up for the shortfall in production from the west,” Habet said. “Only if absolutely necessary will we be looking at putting in place some kind of temporary increase.”
 
“Like every other commodity, poultry is subject to the laws of supply and demand, and the BPA cannot control any price increase that results from a shortage of poultry products, Habet said in an interview last month. He estimated that poultry farmers collectively stand to lose some $6 million by the time the crisis is over.
 
In January health officials discovered that birds from several farms in the Spanish Lookout area had tested positive for bird flu. Further testing revealed that the birds had contracted the H5N2 strain of the virus.
 
This strain is classified as “low pathogenic”, meaning the risk of contaminating humans is slight. At the onset of the outbreak some 12,000 birds had to be destroyed but this selective culling could not contain the outbreak, which has now become an epidemic.

Evacuations In Place As River Is Rising Very Fast In The Houston-Area, USA
Officials say they expect a swollen suburban Houston river to keep rising and to remain high throughout the weekend and they have suggested that those living near its banks may want to leave.
 
Harris County Flood Control District officials haven't ordered residents of subdivisions along the West Fork of the San Jacinto River to leave, but they have said it may not be a bad idea.
 
Spokeswoman Kim Jackson said Wednesday that the district is closely monitoring the situation and is working to alert residents of the potential dangers. She says water released from the Lake Conroe dam is contributing to the surge, as is runoff from two flooded creeks.
 
The area has a history of flooding and many homes are elevated on stilts or mounts.

Mega heatwave kills at least 1,100 in India
"All leave has been cancelled for doctor's and medical staff in India"
All leave has been cancelled for doctor's and medical staff in India as the country swelters under a deadly heatwave that has so far killed over 1,000 people.
 
Temperatures have soared to above 47C this week and doctor's have been called back from holiday to help care for the sick, the Reuters news agency reports.
 
The toll in Andhra Pradesh alone is 852, officials say.
 
The death toll in the worst affected states of Andhra Pradesh in the southeast and nearby Telangana is more than double the toll from a shorter hot spell there last year, officials said, with most of those killed elderly or laborers suffering sunstroke or dehydration.
 
Authorities have canceled doctors' leave and advised people not to head outside in the middle of the day to avoid the worst of the heat, but for many Indians, staying indoors is not an option.
