Korean cargo ship drifts towards Chennai coast

Due to the cylone Thane A Korean cargo vessel, OSM Arena, with 14 members on board drifted towards the Chennai coast following heavy wind due to cyclone Thane. The storm with wind speeds of 140 kmph made landfall this morning between Cuddalore and Puducherry.The ship is carrying around 400 tonnes of bunker fuel, and was seen a few metre opposite INS Adayar (one of the Naval stations), south off the Chennai port.Last night, the ship drifted towards the coast as its winch, which is used to drop the anchor, broke down. The Chennai Port Trust is sending its engineers to repair the winch. Despite the ship being outside the Chennai port's limits, the port trust is sending two tugs to tow the ship to high seas, said the Port Trust's Chairman Atulya Mishra."There is no danger due to the bunker oil. I personally spoke to the captain of the ship, and he said that things are under control. The ship can keep sailing within the limits," Mishra told Business Line.Currently, the ship is safe and is sailing. The draft level opposite INS Adayar is eight metres, which is enough for that vessel.Mr Mishra said that for the last one month, ...

Post Hurricane Season Inspections

nspections will identify areas that may have been impacted by oil as a result of the storms The final approval for post-hurricane season shoreline inspections for Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida were signed, Wednesday, by the federal on-scene coordinator for the Gulf Coast Incident Management Team.Capt. Duke Walker approved the last of the inspections that are intended to identify areas that may have been impacted by oil as a result of storms passing through the Gulf of Mexico during the 2011 hurricane season."These post-hurricane season inspections are another layer of inspections for segments of shoreline that have either never been oiled or have already been declared clean and placed in a status where no further treatment was required," said Walker.If any of the resurveyed shorelines fail to meet the established criteria for clean status, as set forth in the Shoreline Clean-up Completion Plan, they will be placed in a response status until clean-up criteria is met."The inspections will subject these shoreline areas, which were selected by their respective state on-scene coordinators and Federal Trustees, to additional rigorous inspection to ensure that they meet the clean-up criteria established by the SCCP." said Walker. "If oil is detected, and matches oil from ...

Hurricane Hilary Forms In The Pacific

Strengthened into a small, but powerful Category 4 storm in the pacific Forecasters say Hurricane Hilary has strengthened into a small, but powerful Category 4 storm in the Pacific.Hilary's maximum sustained winds were near 135 mph (217 kph) Thursday. The hurricane is not forecast to make landfall, though officials say it is expected to rake Mexico's coast with wind, rain and heavy surf.The U.S. National Hurricane Center says a tropical storm warning is in effect for Mexico's coast from Lagunas de Chacahua to Punta San Telmo. A tropical storm watch is in effect for west of Punta San Telmo to Manzanillo.Hilary is centered about 85 miles (137 kilometers) southwest of Acapulco, Mexico, and is moving west-northwest.In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Ophelia is weakeningSource: Huffington Post

NASA sees 4 tropical cyclones in the Atlantic

There were four tropical cyclones or remnants plaguing the Atlantic Ocean There were four tropical cyclones or remnants plaguing the Atlantic Ocean basin on Sept. 8, 2011, and one satellite captured all four in one image: Katia, Lee, Maria and Nate.NOAA's GOES-13 satellite monitors the Atlantic and eastern U.S. and took a stunning image of Hurricane Katia in the western Atlantic between Bermuda and the U.S. East coast; Tropical Storm Lee's remnants affecting the northeastern U.S.; Tropical Storm Maria in the central Atlantic; and newborn Tropical Storm Nate in the Bay of Campeche, Gulf of Mexico. The visible image was created by the NASA GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.Hurricane Katia Hurricane Katia is causing rough surf along the U.S. east coast, and fortunately that's all she'll do. On Sept. 8, 2011, her center is passing between Bermuda and the east coast of the U.S. Bermuda is still under a tropical storm watch. Katia's eye is still visible in this GOES-13 image.NASA's Aqua satellite's AIRS instrument measured the cloud top temperatures within Hurricane Katia on Sept. 8 at 2:29 a.m. EDT. The infrared data showed the coldest cloud top temperatures (-63F/-52C) and strongest thunderstorms with the ...

Atlantic Hurricane Katia to form this week

It is expected to be about 600 to 800 miles to east of the U.S. coast While both flooding and recovery continues in the wake of Hurricane Irene, the National Hurricane Center is expecting a hurricane to form well out in the Atlantic this week.The hurricane will be called Katia (assuming that no other named storms form first) and will face a long trek westward across the Atlantic. Even by the middle of the holiday weekend, it will be 600 to 800 miles to east of the U.S. coast and would pose no immediate threat. It will even be to the east of the Leeward and Windward islands (most likely to the northeast).In other words, it's much too early to project whether the hurricane would ever pose a direct threat to any of these regions (including the U.S.), and computer forecast models indicate that it might turn northward before approaching these areas.Again, it's too early to know for sure.What is much more certain is that we're nearing the peak of hurricane season, which is roughly in the middle of September.This allows for the possibility that before Katia's ultimate track is determined, a different tropical storm or hurricane could develop and ...

US orders ships to sea, coast braces for hurricane

Irene is a category three hurricane on the five-level Saffir-Simpson scale The US Navy, on Thursday, ordered all its ships away from its huge port at Hampton Roads, Virginia, as the eastern US seaboard braced for the destructive-strength Hurricane Irene."Ships will make final preparations overnight in anticipation of getting underway early August 25 (Friday)," a Navy statement said.Vice Admiral Daniel Holloway, commander of the US 2nd Fleet, said that the decision to send the ships from Hampton Roads is based on Hurricane Irene's current track that indicates the storm will produce at least 50 knots of wind and a large storm surge.Irene is a category three hurricane on the five-level Saffir-Simpson scale, and is forecast to strengthen to a category four storm with winds of 135 miles (217 kilometers) per hour by the time it reaches the US coast over the weekend.Along the coastline North Carolina, directly in Irene's path as its forecast to skirt north, officials ordered mandatory evacuations for tourists."The forecasted destructive winds and tidal surge is too great to keep the ships in port. There is a much greater potential of not only the ships being damaged, but also the pier infrastructure," said Holloway, adding that the ...
