Mexico Earthquake, Strongest in a Century, Kills Dozens

VideoGiant Earthquake Shakes MexicoThe country was struck by an 8.2-magnitude quake, the strongest in decades, killing at least 30 people and leveling areas in some southern states.By CAMILLA SCHICK on Publish Date September 8, 2017.Photo by Luis Alberto Cruz/Associated Press.Watch in Times Video »embed MEXICO CITY — The most powerful earthquake to hit Mexico in 100 years struck off the nation’s Pacific Coast late Thursday, rattling millions of residents in Mexico City with its violent tremors, killing at least 32 people and leveling some areas in the southern part of the country, closer to the quake’s epicenter.About 50 million people across Mexico felt the earthquake, which had a magnitude of 8.2, the government said. In the capital, the force of the temblor sent residents of the megacity fleeing into the streets at midnight, shaken by alarms blaring over loudspeakers and a full minute of tremors. Windows broke, walls collapsed, and the city seemed to convulse in terrifying waves; the quake even rocked the city’s Angel of Independence monument.While Mexico City seemed to have been spared extensive damage to infrastructure, according to the government’s preliminary assessment, the effects in the southern states of Chiapas and Oaxaca were probably more severe. The tally of damage — and death — probably will be difficult to assess initially, given that many areas are remote.Alejandro Murat, the governor of Oaxaca, told the Televisa network that at least 23 people had died in the state, and local officials said residents were buried under the rubble of buildings.Luis Manuel García Moreno, the secretary of civil defense for the state of Chiapas, said the toll there had risen to seven, and two children died in the state of Tabasco, one when a wall collapsed, the other after a respirator lost power in a hospital.The effects were also felt in Guatemala, where at least one person died and homes along the border with Mexico were leveled.Schools in at least 10 Mexican states and in Mexico City were closed on Friday as the president ordered an immediate assessment of the damage nationwide. In the hours after the quake, the National Seismological Service registered several aftershocks.PhotoDamage to a building in Oaxaca, Mexico, after the earthquake late Thursday.Credit Mario Arturo Martinez/European Pressphoto AgencyStill, the resounding feeling in the country was one, at least initially, of relief that the damage was not more widespread, given the nation’s vulnerability to earthquakes and the capital’s extreme density.“We are assessing the damage, which will probably take hours, if not days,” said President Enrique Peña Nieto, who addressed the nation just two hours after the quake. “But the population is safe over all. There should not be a major sense of panic.”Mexico is situated near several boundaries where portions of the earth’s crust collide. The quake on Thursday was more powerful than the one that killed nearly 10,000 people in 1985.While the quake on Thursday struck nearly 450 miles from the capital and off the coast of Chiapas State, the one in 1985 was much closer to the city — so the shaking, coupled with Mexico City being on an ancient lake bed, proved much more deadly.After the 1985 disaster, construction codes were reviewed and stiffened. Today, Mexico’s construction laws are considered as strict as those in the United States or Japan.After the quake hit, people in Mexico City streamed out of their homes in the dark, wearing nightclothes, standing amid apartment buildings, cafes and bars in upscale neighborhoods and dense warrens of the city’s working-class communities.

Port Arthur Faces Harvey Flooding Disaster: ‘Our Whole City Is Underwater’

VideoIn Port Arthur, Harvey Continues Path of DestructionHomes and shelters were flooded and the largest oil refinery in the U.S. was shut down after heavy rains flooded Port Arthur, east of Houston, overnight Tuesday.By MALACHY BROWNE, BARBARA MARCOLINI and CHRIS CIRILLO on Publish Date August 30, 2017.Photo by Beulah Johnson, via Associated Press.Watch in Times Video »embed Even as the sun began to show in Houston on Wednesday, signaling a small measure of hope after days of devastating rainfall from Tropical Storm Harvey, a region east of the city faced disaster anew after it was pummeled by rain overnight.Residents of cities in Jefferson County, Tex., about 100 miles east of Houston, were desperate for help Wednesday morning after rain there caused floodwaters to rise precipitously and lightning made things particularly difficult for those responding to the storm.Many, finding emergency services unresponsive, sought assistance on social media, where their calls were amplified by digital onlookers seeking to help from afar.Port Arthur’s mayor, Derrick Freeman, said on Facebook early Wednesday morning that rescue teams were contending with fires while trying to get residents to safety.“Our whole city is underwater right now,” he wrote, in a message of encouragement that nonetheless communicated the distress the city was facing.The mayor of Beaumont, Becky Ames, told NBC that the flooding was like nothing she had ever seen before.“Every single body of water around us is at capacity and overflowing and the rain is still coming down,” she said.About 254,000 people live in Jefferson County, which Brock Long, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said Wednesday had been “slammed with 20 inches of rainfall” overnight.As news reports teemed with images from Port Arthur showing flooded homes and shelters, the city’s name began to trend on Twitter early Wednesday morning as dozens of residents posted their addresses and conditions, saying that they were trapped in their houses with children and older people in dire need of assistance. Even the city itself used Twitter to call for help.A judge in Jefferson County, Jeff Branick, told a local news reporter that hundreds if not thousands of people were stranded on their roofs, on top of cars and in attics.Sites that may have been able to withstand less forceful weather gave way to the pouring rain.

Hurricane Impact Upends Texas Economic Recovery

VideoHurricane Harvey’s Damage in TexasWitness some of the destruction with a resident who stayed through the storm.By TAMIR KALIFA, TIM CHAFFEE and NATHAN GRIFFITHS on Publish Date August 28, 2017.Photo by Tamir Kalifa for The New York Times.Watch in Times Video »embed The brutal storm pummeling the Houston area is likely to rank as one of the nation’s costliest natural disasters, with tens of billions in lost economic activity and property damage across a region crucial to the energy, chemical and shipping industries.Economists say the region is likely to recover quickly and continue its torrid pace of growth. But for now, at least, the storm is stunting the area’s upswing and redirecting Houston’s business focus from steady growth to damage assessment and rebuilding.The Gulf Coast of Texas — including Houston and the surrounding areas — is one of the nation’s economic powerhouses, accounting for roughly $600 billion in economic activity, according to the Perryman Group, an economic analysis firm in Waco, Tex.The area has a large and growing population and attracts continuous investment in oil-related manufacturing. It is also an important cog in global trade. Texas accounts for about half of petroleum and gas exports, along with about a fifth of chemical exports.“Since the Port Arthur refining complex is the largest in the U.S. and the second largest in the world, this will no doubt impact gasoline and chemicals prices,” said Brett Ryan, senior United States economist at Deutsche Bank.The storm caused at least eight refineries in Texas to shut down, raising concerns about potential increases in gasoline prices. The AAA said gasoline was selling for $2.37 a gallon on average across the country, 4 cents more than a week ago.Whether prices rise further depends on how much damage refineries in the Texas Gulf Coast area sustain, said Jeanette Casselano, an AAA spokeswoman. “The situation is still pretty fluid,” she said. The affected refineries represent about 12 percent of the nation’s refining capacity, according to a report by Goldman Sachs.Ms. […]

The Relationship Between Hurricanes and Climate Change

PhotoRising waters at Bob Hall Pier in Corpus Christi, Texas, as Hurricane Harvey approached on Friday.Credit Courtney Sacco/Corpus Christi Caller-Times, via Associated PressHow much does Hurricane Harvey, or any particular storm, have to do with climate change?The relationship between hurricanes and climate change is not simple. Some things are known with growing certainty. Others, not so much.The most recent draft of a sweeping climate science report pulled together by 13 federal agencies as part of the National Climate Assessment suggested that the science linking hurricanes to climate change was still emerging. Looking back through the history of storms, “the trend signal has not yet had time to rise above the background variability of natural processes,” the report states.Temperatures have been rising, and theory and computer modeling suggest an increase in storm intensity in a warmer world, “and the models generally show an increase in the number of very intense” storms.And while the science of attributing weather events to climate change is advancing, “studies of individual events will typically contain caveats,” the report stated.VideoHow Are Hurricane Categories Defined?Wind speed, types of damage and power loss all factor into how a hurricane category is ranked.By DREW JORDAN and CHRIS CIRILLO on Publish Date August 25, 2017.Photo by Tamir Kalifa for The New York Times.Watch in Times Video »embed Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist at Texas Tech University and an author of the report, said even if global warming does not change the number of storms — and, she noted, there could even be fewer hurricanes over all — tropical storms and hurricanes do gain energy from warm water, so the unusually warm water that has accompanied climate change “can have a role in intensifying a storm that already exists.”Continue reading the main storyMore moisture in the atmosphere, she said, means the amount and intensity of rain associated with hurricanes and other storms is growing […]
