Ash chaos

first_imgThe spectacular eruption of the Mt Kelud volcano in east Java on Thursday night is causing flight cancellations and significant delays for flights between Australia and South-East Asia.At least two people have died, hundreds of thousands of Indonesians have been evacuated and four airports have been closed after the volcano erupted hurling red-hot ash and rocks.The ash cloud was covering the entire island of Java and reached an altitude of 55,0000ft — well above the cruising altitude of 40,000ft.It has now moved in a south-west direction and climbed as high as 65,000ft. It now threatens flights between the Middle-East and Australia.Planes cannot fly through thick ash because it can clog the engines.According to the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre, the ash cloud covered all of Java on Friday.Yesterday, Virgin Australia said it was “very sorry for the inconvenience however the safety of our customers is the highest priority”.“Our meteorologists are continually monitoring the weather situation, in consultation with the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre in Darwin, and we will recommence normal operations as soon as the volcanic ash cloud safely allows it,” an airline spokesman said.It recommended passengers check their latest flight status information online the airline website.Garuda Indonesia said that all its international flights were still operating normally but disruptions might occur.Indonesian authorities have closed the domestic airports of Jogjakarta, Surabaya, Malang and Solo.Indonesia Air Asia is continuing to operate normally.In June 2011, air travel in Australia and New Zealand was thrown into chaos by ash from the Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcano in Chile which swept over southern Australia and New Zealand.The ash cloud went around the world twice and disrupted travel plans for hundreds of thousands of travellers.In May 2010, thousands of flights were grounded in Europe after Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted.The most extraordinary encounter with an ash cloud was in June 1982 when a British Airways 747 flying from London to Perth via Kuala Lumpur operating Flight BA9 with 263 passengers and crew had total engine loss after it flew through volcanic ash caused by the violent and sudden eruption of Mt Galunggung in Indonesia.Capt. Eric Moody and his crew, in an amazing display of skill, cleared the engines of ash by putting the 747 into a steep dive.The engines were restarted when the aircraft reached about 12,000ft.last_img read more

13 days agoBurnley boss Dyche backing Taylor for England call

first_imgBurnley boss Dyche backing Taylor for England callby Paul Vegas13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBurnley boss Sean Dyche says Charlie Taylor can win an England call in the future. The left back only made his first Premier League appearance of the season off the bench against Everton on Saturday. “I think it’s interesting for me, over these years, and now we’re very confidently talking about Burnley players being in the England squad,” Dyche said.“I remember when Tom Heaton got his first call up, it was ‘wow, Burnley haven’t had an England player for however many years’, and now we’re talking about it free and easy, saying, okay, Tom, Keano (Michael Keane), Corky (Jack Cork) got one out of the blue of course, you could argue last season for Westy (Ashley Westwood), just if you were going on form, and performances.“I still think there’s a lot of room and time for Charlie Taylor to go into that thinking, along his development line. Erik’s doing well at the moment, but that doesn’t mean I’ve got a lack of belief in Charlie.“It’s good to say Burnley players are being talked about as freely as we are with the national side, and other international players as well.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Morocco Waitress Kidnapped and GangRaped

first_imgCasablanca- Rape, in its most inhuman forms, still prevails in Morocco despite all efforts to combat it. A waitress was recently gang-raped in Meknes.According to daily Assabah, a 19-year-old waitress was kidnapped then gang-raped by four people in Meknes. The three suspects were presented to the Prosecutor on charges of kidnapping, violence and rape. The young waitress was kidnapped at 4:00 a.m. at the café where she works, before the eyes of the café owner and his customers. According to local police, the café clients could not intervene to save the girl as the three suspects were drunk and armed with swords they used to kidnap her. The waitress told the police that she had already been the victim of rape when she was 17, but never dared to report that to the police because of her fear of the consequences. The abolition of Article 475 of the criminal code, which allowed rapists to flee justice by marrying their victims, does not seem to change the bitter truth about rape in Morocco. The rate of violence and child rape are still high in the kingdom, and the reasons for that mainly are attributed on the lack of stricter laws to punish the perpetrators.   © Morocco World News.
