  5. CBS News: 4 University of Idaho students were likely killed with an "edged weapon," police say; no suspects in custody AP NEWS: Killer who stabbed 4 Idaho students to death still at large MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — The killer — or killers — who stabbed four University of Idaho students to death remained at large Tuesday, prompting many students to leave the campus in the idyllic small town despite police assurances that there was no imminent risk to the community. So many students had left the scenic tree-lined campus in Moscow, Idaho, by Tuesday that university officials said a candlelight vigil scheduled for the next day would instead be held after the Thanksgiving break. The students, all close friends, were found dead in an off-campus rental home around noon on Sunday, and officials said they likely were killed several hours earlier. Latah County Coroner Cathy Mabbutt told the Spokane, Washington-based television station KXLY that her preliminary investigation showed the students were stabbed to death. There is no indication that substance use was involved in the deaths, Mabbutt said. Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson said he understands that the police claims that the public isn’t at imminent risk seems contradictory to the facts that have been released so far about the killings. “Obviously, there’s no way police can say that there’s no risk, but what they’re seeing indicates that there’s not a risk that this person will randomly attack people,” Thompson said, noting that it’s also not yet clear if it was one attacker or more.

As a passionate lover of all things meteorology, I decided to make this topic so that all ATRL members can gather when conditions warrant and discuss anything related to the current season, active storms, dangers, etc. I am NOT an expert or professional by any means, and any advice regarding impacts should be taken from the National Hurricane Center linked above. This season is expected to be a hyperactive one, with the possibility for storms this year to intensify rapidly, meaning their windspeed increases by 35 mph or more in 24 hours or less. This thread will be updated more frequently as the season ramps up. The average peak of the season is September 10. For members living in tropical cyclone prone areas around the world, always have a plan in place and stay vigilant. Take care

  18. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-10-29/officials-dozens-in-cardiac-arrest-after-seoul-crowd-surge Officials: Dozens in Cardiac Arrest After Seoul Crowd Surge THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (KIM TONG-HYUNG and HYUNG-JIN KIM) October 29, 2022 at 11:20 PM GMT+8Updated onOctober 29, 2022 at 11:48 PM GMT+8 Seoul, South Korea (AP) -- South Korean officials said around 50 people were in cardiac arrest and a number feared dead after being crushed by a large crowd pushing forward on a narrow street during Halloween festivities in the capital Seoul. Choi Cheon-sik, an official from the National Fire Agency, said around 100 people were reported as injured during the crowd surge Saturday night in the Itaewon leisure district and that around 50 were being treated for cardiac arrest as of early Sunday. Choi said it was believed that people were crushed to death after a large crowd began pushing forward in a narrow alley near Hamilton Hotel, a major party spot in Seoul. He said more than 400 emergency workers from around the nation, including practically all available personnel in Seoul, were deployed to the streets to treat the injured. Officials didn’t immediately release a death toll. Video on social media showed first responders administering CPR on multiple people lying in the street. Police also confirmed that dozens of people were being given CPR on Itaewon streets while many others have been taken to nearby hospitals. A local police officer said he was also informed that a stampede occurred on Itaewon’s streets where a crowd of people gathered for Halloween festivities. The officer requested anonymity, saying the details of the incident was still under investigation. Some local media reports earlier said the crush happened after a large number of people rushed to an Itaewon bar after hearing an unidentified celebrity visited there. South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol issued a statement calling for officials to ensure swift treatment for those injured and review the safety of the festivity sites. He also instructed the Health Ministry to swiftly deploy disaster medical assistance teams and secure beds in nearby hospital to treat the injured.
