    The week around the world in 20 pictures

    Lahaina, Hawaii, US - A man sits on the Lahaina historic banyan tree damaged by the wildfire. A long road to recovery lies ahead for Lahaina, the vibrant and historic town tucked along the western coast of Maui that now stands in smouldering ruins. Roughly 2,700 buildings were destroyed by the wind-whipped flames and at least 101 people have been killed




    Havana, Cuba - A man walks inside an abandoned swimming pool. With the current hot summer, Havana residents have rushed to the dilapidated pools on the coast of their city, built by wealthy families in the first half of the last century





    Enterprise, Canada - A wildfire burns south of Enterprise in the Northwest Territories. Long lines of traffic have clogged the only road out of the Canadian city of Yellowknife, after authorities ordered the first ever evacuation of a capital in the face of the advancing wildfire





    Brooks Falls, US - A brown bear snags a sockeye salmon in mid-air in Alaska. The bears feast in large numbers at the falls between July and September, as millions of salmon swim upstream to spawn

    Iceland declares state of emergency over volcanic eruption threat



    Powerful earthquakes rock country’s southwestern Reykjanes peninsula, increasing likelihood of event





    AFP in Reykjavik
    Fri 10 Nov 2023 21.21 GMTIcelandic authorities have declared a state of emergency after a series of powerful earthquakes rocked the country’s southwestern Reykjanes peninsula, signalling the increased likelihood of a volcanic eruption in the region.




    “The National police chief … declares a state of emergency for civil defence due to the intense earthquake (activity) at Sundhnjukagigar, north of Grindavik,” the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management said in a statement.

    “Earthquakes can become larger than those that have occurred and this series of events could lead to an eruption,” the administration warned.


    Geothermal spa closes in Iceland as guests flee after series of earthquakes




    The Icelandic Met Office (IMO) said an eruption could take place “in several days”.
    The village of Grindavik, home to about 4,000 people, is located 1.86 miles (3km) south-west of the area where Friday’s earthquake swarm was registered. It has evacuation plans in place in case of an eruption.
    At about 5.30pm GMT, two strong earthquakes were felt as far as the capital, Reykjavik, 40km away, and along much of the country’s southern coast, causing windows and household objects to shake.
    The biggest tremor, north of Grindavik, had a magnitude of 5.2, according to preliminary IMO figures.
    Police closed a road running north-south to Grindavik on Friday after it was damaged by the earthquakes.
    Since late October, 24,000 tremors have been registered on the peninsula, according to the IMO, with “a dense swarm” of nearly 800 quakes registered between midnight and 2pm GMT on Friday.
    The IMO noted an accumulation of magma underground at a depth of about 3.1 miles (5km). Should it start moving towards the surface it could lead to a volcanic eruption.
    “The most likely scenario is that it will take several days rather than hours for magma to reach the surface,” it said. “If a fissure were to appear where the seismic activity is at its highest now, lava would flow to the south-east and to the west, but not towards Grindavik.”
    Since 2021, three eruptions have taken place on the Reykjanes peninsula, in March 2021, August 2022 and July 2023. Those three were located far from any infrastructure or populated areas.
    On Thursday, the Blue Lagoon, located near Grindavik and famed for its geothermal spas and luxury hotels, closed as a precaution after another earthquake swarm.
    Also nearby is the Svartsengi geothermal plant, the main supplier of electricity and water to 30,000 residents on the Reykjanes peninsula. It has contingency plans in place to protect the plant and its workers in the event of an eruption.
    Iceland has 33 active volcanic systems, the highest number in Europe

    You might feel more comfortable getting your post count up in the games room, Slimmer. AFAIK posts there don't need to be approved my a moderator either.

    A group of Israeli and Thai hostages held by Hamas in Gaza since October 7 has been released as a truce between Israel and the militant group began, officials said.

    The Red Cross, which is helping to transfer the detainees, said 24 hostages had been freed.

    The hostages include 13 Israelis, 10 Thai citizens and one Filipino citizen, according to the Qatari foreign ministry, which helped broker the agreement between Israel and Hamas.

    I don't think that I will bother TBH .
    That's a huge task just for the privilege of being able to post and your posts appearing immediately , rather than appearing the next day when the threads already moved onto the next page
