Warnings of Southern California blackouts called misleading

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 04/13/2016 - 06:39
California energy officials intent on reopening a major natural gas storage field idled by the country's worst-ever methane leak have resorted to scare tactics in raising the prospect of looming power outages in Los Angeles, utility critics said on Tuesday. Three state regulatory bodies and the city Water and Power Department warned last week the region faced up to 14 days of blackouts this summer as gas-fired power plants go without supplies normally furnished by the crippled Aliso Canyon field when electricity demand peaks. Southern California Gas Co, the division of San Diego-based utility giant Sempra Energy that owns Aliso Canyon, remains barred from refilling the underground storage reserve until the facility is deemed safe to operate again.

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 04/13/2016 - 06:38

File photo of Bear Glacier on a boat tour of Kenai Fjords National Park in Seward, AlaskaSnow storms created "white-on-white" conditions, thwarting previous attempts to reach the pair by air and prompting a ground crew to scale the glacier to try to rescue them on foot, said Alaska Air National Guard spokesman Staff Sergeant Edward Eagerton. On Tuesday, under clearer skies, a HH-60 Pave Hawk military helicopter landed on Bear Glacier and rescued the hikers in the remote Kenai Mountains, said guard spokeswoman Technical Sergeant Alicia Halla. The hikers, Alaska residents Christopher Hanna, 45, and Jennifer Neyman, 36, were flown to a hospital in the nearby town of Soldotna where they will be evaluated, Halla said.
