Everest Avalanche Kills At Least 12 Nepali Guides


An avalanche swept down a slope of Mount Everest on Friday killing 12 Nepali mountaineering guides at the beginning of the main climbing season, a Tourism Ministry official said.

The avalanche, the deadliest in eight years, hit the most popular route to the mountain's peak. Three Nepali guides were injured and up to five people were missing, said Dipendra Paudel at the Tourism Ministry's mountaineering department.

It was the first major avalanche on Mount Everest this climbing season, when hundreds of foreign and Nepali climbers flock to the mountain to attempt to reach its 8,850 meter (29,035 feet) peak.

The avalanche hit the sherpa guides relatively low on the mountain, between base camp and camp 1, early on Friday, ministry officials said.

Helicopters and rescuers on foot had been sent to the site, said senior ministry official Madhusudan Burlakoti.

More than 4,000 climbers have scaled Everest's summit since it was first climbed by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in 1953. The route they took is the one hit by the avalanche on Friday.

Nearly 250 people have died on the mountain.

Everest is on the border between Nepal and the Chinese region of Tibet and can be climbed from both sides.

Nepal's Tourism Ministry has issued permits to 334 foreign climbers to scale Mount Everest this season, up from 328 the whole of last year. Nepal plans to cut fees to climb the mountain despite concern about overcrowding.

An equal number of sherpa guides also climb the mountain to help the foreign mountaineers. They often go ahead of the foreign climbers, preparing the way by fixing ropes and setting up camps.

The climbing season usually ends in late May when rainy season wind and cloud push up from the south to cloak the Himalayas, making climbing at high altitudes virtually impossible.

Nepal is home to eight of the world's 14 highest peaks.

MERS - Corona Virus is spreading very fast worldwide




The World Health Organization (WHO) has recorded 243 infection cases of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome – Corona Virus (MERS-CoV) worldwide as of April 17, 2014, the latest include a man in Malaysia who came from a pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia. He is the first confirmed case in Southeast Asia of the spreading virus.

MANILA, Philippines – With the recent death of a Filipino health worker in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome-Corona Virus (MERS-CoV) and the arrival of another infected OFW here, the World Health Organization (WHO) urged healthcare facilities and the general public to take precautions to prevent the virus from spreading further.

“Health-care facilities that provide for patients suspected or confirmed to be infected with MERS-CoV should take appropriate measures to decrease the risk of transmission of the virus from an infected patient to other patients, health-care, workers and visitors,” WHO said in its advisory posted on its website Friday.

“It is not always possible to identify patients with MERS-CoV early because some have mild or unusual symptoms. For this reason, it is important that health-care workers apply standard precautions consistently with all patients – regardless of their diagnosis – in all work practices all the time,” it said.

An OFW who arrived in the country Wednesday from UAE was found to have tested positive for MERS-CoV and was immediately placed in quarantine along with members of his family who picked him up at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

The male health worker was tested by doctors in UAE but left for Manila before the results were released. The Department of Health (DOH) was immediately informed about the patient’s test results.

DOH Secretary Enrique Ona previously said that though the OFW showed no symptoms of the virus, they were tracing the people who have had contact with him on the plane to have them tested for MERS-CoV as well.

“We just want to make sure that these people had no MERS-CoV and had no symptoms. These are all precautionary measures,” Ona said.

Continued surveillance

WHO said that it has recorded 243 confirmed cases of MERS-CoV worldwide, including 93 deaths since September 2012.

“Patients should be managed as potentially infected when the clinical and epidemiological clues strongly suggest MERS-CoV, even if an initial test on a nasopharyngeal swab is negative. Repeat testing should be done when the initial testing is negative, preferably on specimens from the lower respiratory tract,” WHO said.

“WHO encourages all Member States to continue their surveillance for severe acute respiratory infections (SARI) and to carefully review any unusual patterns,” it said.

The public is advised to avoid going to farms where the virus is known to have infected animals and to practice proper hygiene measures.

“People at high risk of severe disease due to MERS-CoV should avoid close contact with animals when visiting farms or barn areas where the virus is known to be potentially circulating,” WHO said.

“For the general public, when visiting a farm or a barn, general hygiene measures, such as regular hand washing before and after touching animals, avoiding contact with sick animals, and following food hygiene practices, should be adhered to,” it said.

WHO advised governments to immediately notify them regarding new cases of infection as well as the possible exposure of people around whoever has been infected.

“All Member States are reminded to promptly assess and notify WHO of any new case of infection with MERS-CoV, along with information about potential exposures that may have resulted in infection and a description of the clinical course,” WHO said.

“Investigation into the source of exposure should promptly be initiated to identify the mode of exposure, so that further transmission of the virus can be prevented,” it said.

A Malaysian had reportedly died in his home town in the southern state of Johor after coming back from a pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia’s holy city of Mecca last March 29.

Despite the spread of MERS-CoV to Philippines and Malaysia, WHO said it would not yet recommend special screening at points of entry or recommend any travel or trade restrictions.

Spring Snowstorm Buries Ashland, Cancels School

Many people across the Northland are digging out once again, but some areas had it worse than others. Eyewitness News went out to Ashland where there was more than a foot of snow in some parts of town.

We found Richard Starosta snowblowing Thursday. He doesn't stop at his sidewalk; he clears the way for his neighbors.

"It's something I've done for years," Starosta said. "I got the snowblower and they don't have one."

It's hard work when you're clearing off half a block that's a foot high.

"The snow is wet and heavy," Starosta said. "That makes it hard to do."

Some work outside beats the alternative for some. School was canceled for Ashland Schools.

"I got to sleep in," high school student Hunter Weber said.

We also found some kids making snow angels and building snowballs.

While not everyone is as excited about the white stuff, others have just learned to call it home.

"I like it here," Starosta said. "I really do."

Plane crashes near Bethel, Alaska

On April 8, a Cessna 208 Caravan plane operated by Hageland Aviation crashed near Bethel, killing two pilots: Derrick Cedars, 42 of Bethel and Greggory McGee, 46 of Anchorage.

Around 5:15 p.m., Alaska State Troopers in Bethel were notified the plane was overdue in the vicinity of Three Step Mountain. Within the hour, the wreckage of the plane was seen near a fishing weir, burning. The two pilots were on a training mission.

The Alaska Army Guard in Bethel dispatched a Blackhawk helicopter with local fire personnel and Alaska State Troopers. Troopers observed a large debris field and charred willows around the crash site. The two pilots were found dead in the crash.

"When you have a family as close as ours at Hageland Aviation, you hope you never receive this sort of news. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of Greggory and Derrick as well as all those who have had a chance to work with them," said Hageland Aviation President Jim Hickerson.

Cedars was Hageland's lead aviation pilot and is survived by his wife and two children. McGee is survived by his wife.

The National Transportation Advisory Board has been on the scene investigating the cause of the crash.

Four people died in another Hageland Aviation Cessna 208 near St. Mary's in November. Soon after, Era changed its name to Ravn, though officials deny that the crash had anything to do with the change.
