California Sea Level Could Rise 10 Feet By End Of This Century | The Huffington Post

Airports, roads, towns and homes could be swamped, a state report says.

A California government council is warning that climate change could cause ocean waters off the coast to rise far higher than previously anticipated ― an increase in sea-level by as much as 10 feet by the end of the century.

This worst-case scenario would destroy airports in Oakland and San Francisco, and would swamp roadways, low-lying bridges, railroad tracks, farmland, beaches and some towns. As many as 42,000 homes would be completely submerged, warns the report released this month by a California Ocean Protection Council advisory team. The council adopted an updated report with higher sea-level estimates on Wednesday.

Here’s what it looks like when the US fires a nuclear weapon – Business Insider

The US launched an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base on Wednesday.

Though nuclear tensions around the world have been running high, the launch was completely routine, and had been planned three to five years in advance.

The US has dozens of ICBM silos all around the country as part of the nuclear triad, or three types of nuclear forces that guarantee the nation’s ability to strike back in the event of nuclear war.

The unarmed launch on Wednesday flew about 4,000 miles to a test range in Hawaii in just a matter of minutes.

‘Bachelor’ star called 911 before allegedly fleeing scene | WPXI

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Former Bachelor Chris Soules called 911 to report his crash that killed a fellow Iowa farmer, seeking medical help for the man before authorities say he left the scene and holed up in his home for hours until his arrest.

Soules, who starred on ABC’s “The Bachelor” two years ago, said the man had been thrown into a ditch, wasn’t conscious, and didn’t appear to be breathing. He told the dispatcher that he didn’t know CPR, and he could be heard asking others who were there if they did. The audio then indicates that someone tried to perform CPR on the man, but it’s unclear whether it was Soules. Soules said the man had a pulse and had blood coming from his mouth.
