The cubs were born near Hamburg in Germany, but came to Hungary when they were only two and a half weeks old, after their mother became ill and could not feed them any more. They are six weeks old now and growing fast, fed on goats’ milk and special tiger food. May 17, 2012. REUTERS/Stringer

Aftermath of Great Mississippi River Flooding – Bonnet Carre Spillway Last Floodgate Is Closed In Pictures

During the Mississippi River flooding, the US Army Corps of Engineers opened  floodgates of the Bonnet Carre Spillway and later the Morganza Spillway.

The Bonnet Carre Spillway was opened on May 9, to divert flood water from the Mississippi River into Lake Pontchartrain.

330 of the spillway’s 350 bays were opened before the corps started closing them on June 12.

The last 20 bays were closed on Monday.

On May 14, the Morganza floodway was opened to diverted water from the Mississippi into the Atchafalaya River, which carried it into the Gulf of Mexico.

It caused some flooding in the Atchafalaya Basin.

The number of gates opened on the Morganza peaked at 17.

Only one gate remained open as of Monday morning.

This two picture combo shows the Bonnet Carre Spillway, thirty miles upriver from New Orleans, on May 9, 2011, when it was opened to divert rising water from the Mississippi River into Lake Pontchartrain, left, and Monday, June 20, 2011, right, when the last bays were closed, in Norco, La.

The Missouri River Flooding In Pictures

The Missouri River flooding is getting worse.

Flood water crest more and more levees.

The US Corps of Engineer had released water from dams along the river.

And in some place the levees were ruptured causing more water to flood the homes and farms.

This is another U.S. flood disaster after the very bad Mississippi River flooding last month.

Hurricane Beatriz Hits Mexico – Photos

Hurricane Beatriz hit Mexico’s Pacific coast on Tuesday.

It is a Category 1 hurricane.

The popular tourist ports of Acapulco and Manzanillo were closed ahead of the hurricane’s arrival.

There are hurricane warnings along the Mexican coast from Lazaro Cardenas northwestward to Cabo Corrientes. 

The Mexican government said the coastal states of Guerrero, Michoacan, Colima and Jalisco should prepare for 10- to 13-foot (3- to 4-meter) waves and 6 to 12 inches of rain.

A storm surge was expected to cause coastal flooding in the hurricane warning area.

Storm surge happens when the hurricane caused the sea to rise up higher than the ordinary sea level.

It can cause lots of damages especially if it happens during the high tide.

Hurricane Beatriz is the second hurricane of the 2011 Pacific season.

The first was Hurricane Adrian, which formed earlier this month.

This is a disaster as the heavy rains can cause floods and strong winds can damage buildings as well as causing very high waves.

AP News said that Asian and African night owls were treated to a lunar eclipse, and ash in the atmosphere from a Chilean volcano turned it blood red for some viewers.

Astronomical calculations confirm that it would be one of the two longest total lunar eclipses of the century.

A total of 85 total lunar eclipses, according to the scientists, will be taking place this century of which the longest total lunar eclipse will occur on July 27, 2018.

Joplin Tornado, US Worst Single Tornado (Twister) Killed 117 – Photos

The monster tornado that tore through the heart of Joplin, Missouri is reportedly the worst single tornado in modern US history. 

Please click here for more photos, ‘Powerful Tornado (Twister) Hit Joplin, Missouri Killing At Least 89 People – Pictures’.

The tornado touched down at 5:41 p.m. Sunday, about 24 minutes after a warning was issued.

At least 117 people were killed in the disaster

The place looks like it have been hit by a bomb in a big war. 

Please click here for, ‘Before And After Photos: Devastation Of Joplin, Missouri Tornado’.

 

Rescuers race to search for victims trapped under the rubbles of fallen trees, damaged buildings and smashed vehicles before it is too late.

But the work was slowed by a new round of very bad weather; including thunderstorms and hail two inches in diameter that rolled through the city Monday, as well as widespread problems with broken natural gas lines and other safety issues, authorities said.

Two rescuers were struck by lightning as they braved relentless rain and high winds searching for survivors.

By Monday night, they’d found 17 people alive.

I am very sad and sorry to see so many people died, a lot of people injured, have no houses to live in anymore and lost their things. 

 

They must feel very sad. 

More tornadoes are possible Tuesday in Joplin and other cities in the central U.S.

Anyway I hope that there will not be too much more tornado.
