Derecho Heading to North Eastern USA
Weather forecasters are warning that a rare weather phenomenon known as a
'derecho' is heading toward the North Eastern USA, starting Wednesday. Derecho,
Spanish for straight, is a widespread and long-lasting storm that comes with
fast-moving thunderstorms, heavy rain and potentially damaging high winds, hail
as big as golf balls as well as tornadoes. "It's like predicting a large tornado
is going to happen," said MSNBC Meteorologist Bill Karins. "No one can do that.
The only thing we can do is say conditions are favorable for one to happen. It's
about as common as a really powerful tornado system, which we usually see about
four or five times a year." During 'super ' derecho in June 2012, at the Fort
Wayne International Airport in Indiana, wind gusts of 91mph were recorded and
was responsible for the death of 22 people. "We've got a couple of rough days
from the Midwest over to the Mid-Atlantic area," said Tom Moore, meteorologist
of The Weather Channel. Moore said. "I don't know if this situation is going to
match that because it's a sloppier system," and it remains unclear whether this
system will develop into a derecho, but he said the storm system will bring
widespread wind damage and severe weather, with tornadoes and localized flooding
possible for some areas. Later Wednesday night the system will move through Ohio
and cross the Appalachian mountains.
Google, Inc. (GOOG) Chief Legal Officer David Drummond said in a letter to
Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Robert Mueller, "Assertions in the
press that our compliance with these requests gives the U.S. government
unfettered access to our users' data are simply untrue." Google requested the
U.S. Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation allow them to
disclose the number of national security requests it receives from the federal
government. Google has been hampered by "government nondisclosure obligations
regarding the number of FISA national security requests that Google receives."
"We therefore ask you to help make it possible for Google to publish in our
Transparency Report aggregate numbers of national security requests, including
FISA disclosures-in terms of both the number we receive and their scope,"
For week ended June 7, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported that
U.S. crude-oil supplies rose by 2.5 million barrels, to 393.8 million barrels.
EIA reported that gasoline supplies increased by 2.7 million barrels and
distillate stockpiles decreased by 1.2 million barrels.
Over the past 24 hours the situation in Greece is heating up again as the Athens
General Index fell 3.2% on Wednesday. As the Greece government referred to TV as
a 'haven of waste', viewers saw TV screens turn black as the government pulled
the plug on state TV. Reports are that the TV will come back on the air in the
fall, with fewer reporters. The Greek government has called an emergency cabinet
meeting and the prime minister may have to stand a vote of confidence again.
