Winds disrupt power in western US December 2, 2011

Stretches of motorway were closed in Utah after several lorries were overturned by high speed winds

Hundreds of thousands of people have been left without power after 48 hours of ferocious winds across a swathe of states in the western US.

A state of emergency was declared in Los Angeles County, California as schools closed, trees were downed and lorries overturned on motorways.

Wind speeds slowed to around 60mph (97km/h) during the night on Thursday, and are set to ease further on Friday.

Annual Santa Ana winds in California blow from high mountains to the coast.

This year strong winter storm winds, moving east, are expected reach Oklahoma, Missouri and Indiana.

The National Weather Service high wind warning will remain in effect through much of the day on Friday.

The winds, reported to be the strongest in a decade, fanned fires in northern California and were said to have reached 123mph in Colorado.

More than 130 acres (53 hectares) of land in El Dorado County, California, were torched by wind-borne fire, the Sacramento Bee reports.

‘Rather rare’

Latest figures suggest 270,000 people are still without power in southern California, according to the Associated Press news agency.

Davis County, California has issued a disaster declaration to access state funding and estimated $3.5m (£2.2m) worth of damage to infrastructure.

In Pasadena, 40 people were evacuated from their apartments after a tree crushed the roof of the building.

Daphne Bell, a Pasadena resident who has lived in the neighbourhood for 30 years, said: “This is the worst, the absolute worst. There were times it sounded like a freight train was roaring down my driveway.”

Meteorologist Brian Edwards, with Accuweather, said: “It’s one of the strongest events that I can remember. It’s rather rare.”

Informer’s Active Role in Terror Case Is Said to Have Deterred F.B.I. November 22, 2011

Oops! The false flag begins to unravel at breakneck speed, as usual: Informer’s Active Role in Terror Case Is Said to Have Deterred F.B.I. 22 Nov 2011 A confidential informer provided companionship and a staging area so Jose Pimentel could build three pipe bombs while the Intelligence Division of the New York Police Department built its case. But it was the informer’s role, and that of his police handlers, that have now been cited as among the reasons the F.B.I., which had its own parallel investigation of Mr. Pimentel, did not pursue the case, which was announced on Sunday night in a news conference at City Hall. Terrorism cases are generally handled by federal authorities. There was concern that the informer might have played too active a role in helping Mr. Pimentel, said several people who were briefed on the case, who all spoke on the condition of anonymity, either because of the tense relations between the Intelligence Division and the F.B.I. or because the case was continuing.

Pentagon tests hypersonic weapon November 18, 2011

The US has test-fired a new weapon which can travel at five times the speed of sound, the Pentagon says.

The missile was launched from Hawaii and reached its target on a Pacific atoll 2,300 miles (3,700km) away in less than half an hour.

The Advanced Hypersonic Weapon is part of a programme to build new high-speed long-range missiles.

Its aim is to allow the US military to strike targets anywhere in the world within an hour.

A statement from the Pentagon said the weapon had been launched using a three-stage booster system, which had successfully sent it into the upper atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean.

It reached hypersonic speeds before hitting its target on Kwajalein atoll, part of the Marshall Islands.

New munitions

The term hypersonic is defined as exceeding Mach 5 – five times the speed of sound, or 3,700 mph (6,000km/h).

“The objective of the test is to collect data on hypersonic boost-glide technologies and test range performance for long-range atmospheric flight,” said the Pentagon statement.

The US defence department gave no details of the top speed achieved by the weapon.

However, defence analysts Global Security.org say the aim of the programme is to be able to strike a target 3,700 miles (6,000km) away in 35 minutes, with an accuracy of 10m.

They say the Advanced Hypersonic Weapon is one of a number of alternatives the Pentagon is considering to allow a conventional weapon to strike “fleeting targets around the globe faster than today’s munitions”.

Earlier this year a congressional report said the programme was part of a project to develop a “prompt global strike” system that can deliver long-range weapons anywhere in the world while avoiding flying over third-party nations.
