Giant Antarctica Iceberg Puts Nasa On Alert

The iceberg is bigger than Chicago and, at a third of a mile thick, could take more than a year to melt

The B-31 Iceberg is seen after separating from a rift in Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier.

An iceberg bigger than Chicago is being monitored by Nasa after breaking into the ocean off Antarctica.

The sheet, known as B31, is one of the biggest on the planet at 255 square miles (660 sq km).

NASA has been monitoring Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier since a crack was spotted in 2011, amid fears any iceberg could contribute to rising sea levels.

B31, which is about a third of a mile (500m) thick, is not currently on any major shipping routes.

However, with winter approaching in the area, it could become difficult to track.

"The iceberg is now well out of Pine Island Bay and will soon join the more general flow in the Southern Ocean," Grant Bigg, from the University of Sheffield, said in the NASA statement.

"We are doing some research on local ocean currents to try to explain the motion properly. It has been surprising how there have been periods of almost no motion, interspersed with rapid flow."

An iceberg this big could take a year or more to melt, Robert Marsh, a scientist at the University of Southampton, said in an interview last year.

The largest iceberg ever recorded was called B15 and had an area of 4,250 square miles (11,000 square kilometres) - about the size of Jamaica.

It broke off Antarctica's Ross Ice Shelf in March 2000 and still exists in several parts around the Antarctic.

MERS virus diagnosed in man in Greece

A man in Athens, Greece was recently admitted to intensive care at a local hospital and diagnosed with the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, according to local health officials and the World Health Organization. The 69-year-old patient had recently traveled back to his home country from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he currently resides. This is the first known case of MERS in Greece.

Kathimerini, a newspaper in Athens, say health officials determined the man came into contact with 73 people from the time he boarded the plane to when he was admitted and isolated at the hospital. "Two of the 73 people exposed to the victim -- his wife and the taxi driver who collected him from Athens International Airport last Thursday -- have already undergone laboratory tests and tested negative for the virus," the paper reports.

According to WHO, the patient visited a hospital in Saudi Arabia before embarking on his flight. At that medical facility he presented with symptoms that included fever and diarrhea, and was misdiagnosed with typhoid fever.

Earlier this morning, Reuters also reported health officials in Saudi Arabia had confirmed 11 new cases of MERS, including a first in Mecca. Last week, WHO received confirmation for 10 cases of MERS, all which were detected in Abu Dhabi among health care workers who had recently come in contact with patients diagnosed with virus.

Over the last several years, the virus has maintained a small but alarming presence in this region of the world, primarily in the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. A few patients have also been diagnosed with MERS in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Tunisia and the U.K. Just as this newest case in Greece, health officials traced the incidences in Europe to travel from the Middle East.

Since September 2012, WHO has been informed of a total of 238 laboratory-confirmed cases of MERS, including 92 deaths throughout the world. A coronavirus is a respiratory infection in the same family of the common cold and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). The latter killed 800 people during a 2003 pandemic.

Experts suggest MERS has emerged from human contact with bats, while others report camels may be responsible for spreading the virus. Symptoms of MERS include fever, cough, shortness of breath, as well as gastrointestinal distress.

Scores killed in DR Congo train crash

A government spokesman says at least 57 people have died in a rail accident in the country's southeast

At least 57 people have died in a train crash in the Democratic Republic of Congo's southeast, according to a government spokesman.

The accident on Tuesday involved a goods train that was also carrying people near Likasi, a mining town located between Lubumbashi and Kolwezi.

"Thirty-seven people have died, but the police fear that there will be more," Lambert Mende, a government spokesman, told the AFP news agency.

He added that it appeared that engine failure had caused the train to speed out of control.

The Reuters news agency reported that Dikanga Kazadi, Katanga's interior minister, said 63 people were killed and another 80 people were seriously injured in the crash. Reuters also reported that 50 people were trapped inside the train after 12 of its carriages flipped off the track.

"Evidently the train was going too fast, the driver came to a curve and had to break suddenly leading to the accident," Kazadi said.

An investigation is currently under way to determine the cause of Tuesday's crash, but Kazadi said the priority is to rescue those still trapped.

The country's infrastructure is in poor condition due to decades of neglect and conflict.

The World Bank is currently funding a refurbishment of the train network, which has received few upgrades since the country gained independence from Belgium in 1960.

More than 100 people were killed in a 2007 accident involving a goods train in the province of Kasai Occidential.

Strongest sandstorm in decades sweeps China

Sand envelopes Gansu Province in northwest China reducing visibility to less than 65ft, in the strongest sandstorm since 1996



Embedded image permalink

A strong sandstorm swept Gansu Province in northwest China on Wednesday, reducing visibility to less than 65ft, according to the provincial meteorological center.

The sandstorm, the strongest since 1996 according to reports, started in the early afternoon in Dunhuang County.

"Suddenly it became dark and I can't tell whether it's day or night," said one resident.

"My nose hurts and I can't open my eyes," another resident said.

The Jiuquan City Meteorological Center, which includes Dunhuang, issued a sandstorm red alert, the highest level alert, forecasting that visibility would be reduced to less than 164ft throughout Jiuquan on Wednesday evening.

As well as Dunhuang, neighbouring counties were also affected, with Guazhou, Subei, Yumen and Jinta counties also issuing sandstorm red alerts.

The provincial meteorological center forecast that the sandstorm will die down on Thursday.
