Tornadoes roar through the south

March 26, 2021

A wave of tornadoes roared across five southern states Thursday, causing five fatalities and inflicting devastating property damage and widespread power outages — totaling 24 tornado reports, according to the NOAA Storm Prediction Center.

Alabama took the brunt with 18 reported tornadoes. Officials reported extensive damage southeast of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, in the towns of Centreville and Brent. Planes and hangars were also damaged at the city's airport, and 24,000 power outages have been reported.

In Georgia, the National Weather Service declared a tornado emergency shortly after midnight for Newnan, Georgia, located about 35 miles southwest of Atlanta. The city experienced heavy damage in and around its historic downtown, including downed trees and power lines. More than 18,000 homes and businesses were without power in Georgia as of early Friday morning. In parts of Tennessee, including Nashville, hail and wind knocked down trees and power lines.

The storm may become a hurricane just prior to landfall, possibly bringing storm surge flooding and damaging winds. Nana could also bring flooding rain to parts of Honduras, Belize, Guatemala and eastern Mexico. A tropical storm watch has been issued in Belize and northern Honduras, including Roatan Island and the Bay Islands.

Global marine: Ship blocking the Suez Canal is finally freed

March 29, 2021

Six days after blocking the Suez Canal, the 224,000-ton containership, Ever Given, is finally freed and moving north to an anchor point — making way for traffic to resume in this vital trade route.

More than 360 vessels are waiting to pass through the canal, causing a domino of global supply delays that could take weeks and possibly months to clear, according to top container shipping lines. While the impact is not yet known, delayed shipments could result in manufacturers waiting for parts, retailers not able to restock shelves, and lost opportunity for those sitting in the canal who planned to use their vessels for other cargo loads.

This comes as container shipping companies have been struggling for months due to COVID-19 disruptions and a surge in demand for retail goods that led to logistical bottlenecks around the world.
