Officials say they've recovered the body of a woman swept away by floodwaters after a line of powerful storms dumped nearly 4 inches of rain on parts of western Pennsylvania. Bridgeville police say the woman's body was found in McLaughlin Run, just southwest of Pittsburgh. Residents and business owners are cleaning up Thursday after Wednesday's storms unleashed flash flooding that carried off cars, damaged buildings and prompted scores of evacuations and rescues.
Days of torrential rain have led to widespread flooding in southeastern Texas, the state's worst floods since Hurricane Harvey last year. Since Tuesday, 5 to 10 inches of rain has fallen along the Texas coast from the border to around 125 miles south of Houston, with over 15 inches in some areas.
<!--smart_paging_autop_filter--><!--smart_paging_filter-->It's the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, so soak up some of those direct sunrays (safely, of course) and celebrate the start of summer with these solstice facts.
Over the past 50 years, as Atlantic waters have warmed, fish populations have headed north in search of colder temperatures. Lobsters have migrated 170 miles and the iconic cod about 65 miles, while mid-Atlantic species such as black sea bass have surged about 250 miles north, federal surveys show. But fishing limits and other rules, by and large, haven’t shifted with them. The rapid movement of fisheries, in New England and around the world, ...
<p>Antarctica's bedrock is rising surprisingly fast as a vast mass of ice melts into the oceans, a trend that might slow an ascent in sea levels caused by global warming, scientists said on Thursday. The Earth's crust in West Antarctica is rising by up to 4.1 centimeters (1.61 inches) a year, an international team wrote in the journal Science, in a continental-scale version of a foam mattress reforming after someone sitting on it gets up.</p>

Disaster strikes these states again and again.
Authorities have attributed two deaths in Wisconsin and one in Michigan to storms and flooding. The Sawyer County Sheriff's Department says severe Wisconsin thunderstorms toppled a large oak tree onto a camper Sunday on Lake Chetac, killing a Minnesota man inside. The storms and flooding also caused the death of a man whose body was found Sunday along a flooded road in Wisconsin's Ashland County. A 12-year-old boy died Monday after flooding caused his Michigan home's basement to collapse Sunday.
That's a lotta lava. Since the eruption of the Kilauea volcano May 3 on the Big Island, it's belched out about 250 million cubic meters of lava, making it one of the largest eruptions in decades in Hawaii. "It's nothing like what we've witnessed in recent history," Wendy Stovall said.

It's been 30 years since much of the world learned that global warming had arrived, but climate isn't the only thing that's changing: Nature itself is too. That's the picture painted by interviews with more than 50 scientists and an Associated Press analysis of data on plants, animals, pollen, ice, sea level and more. Evidence of climate change is in the blueberry bushes in Henry David Thoreau's Walden Pond, the dwindling population of polar bears of the Arctic and the dying corals worldwide.

The steady rise in global surface temperatures, monitored since the 1880s, is largely attributed to human-caused greenhouse gas emissions.
<p>CAPE TOWN (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - In just 30 years, cities around the world will face dramatically higher risks from extreme heat, coastal flooding, power blackouts and food and water shortages unless climate-changing emissions are curbed, urban researchers warned Tuesday. Today, for instance, over 200 million people in 350 cities face stifling heat where average daily peak temperatures hit 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) for three months of the year, according to a study released by C40 Cities, a network of major world cities pushing climate action.</p>
Extraordinary ways the world celebrates the summer solstice
Cities in the U.S. With Really Clean Air
Hundreds of thousands of homes in the United States could face persistent flooding as climate change pushes sea levels higher, according to a new report. Sea level rise is expected to be one of the most tangible effects of a changing climate, as accumulating greenhouse gases fuel a steady rise in global temperatures that in turn raise the level of oceans - threatening low-lying and coastal areas. A new report from the Union of Concerned Scientists quantified the risk by comparing areas already known to be at high flood risk against data from the real estate website Zillow. The result: more than 300,000 homes lining America’s lengthy coastlines could face chronic flooding by 2045, which would mean 30-year mortgages issued to home-buyers today could be placing them in at-risk properties. Those structures house some 550,000 people. Even before homes are entirely submerged, the report found, plummeting property values could lead homeowners to abandon properties and potentially entire neighbourhoods that have become effectively uninhabitable, “with potential reverberations throughout the national economy”. “With the inevitability of ever-higher seas, these are not devaluations from which damaged real estate markets will recover”, the report warned. But the report’s authors warn that many real estate markets do not take into account the looming cataclysm, leading more people to purchase property that could face regularly flooding. In addition to the homes at risk of inundation, the report found that some 14,000 commercial properties with a collective value of $18.5 billion lie in the danger zone. Extending the analysis to 2100, the likely consequences become even more dire: some 4.7 million people could live in homes that are vulnerable to rising waters, with Florida, New York and New Jersey holding the greatest numbers. Eight young Floridians file lawsuit against the state of Florida over climate change Officials must respond with policies that seek to limit greenhouse gas emissions and help coastal communities prepare for increased flooding, the report urges. “At the local level, coastal communities must no longer allow construction that cannot accommodate sea level rise”, South Miami mayor Philip Stoddard told the report’s authors. But Michael Berman, an expert on housing and flood risk who has advised the federal government on housing policy, warned that policymakers have been slow to recognise the threat. “Short-term thinking and a simple view of the world tends to prevail in our culture, including our business and political cultures,” Mr Berman said. “There is almost nothing being done by policymakers in many vulnerable parts of the United States in the flood risk arena.”
New York is predicted to hit highs of between 92 and 95 degrees today - although the 'Real Feel' temperatures wil be more like a sweltering 106. The last time the mercury hit 95 was in 1929.

We were warned.On June 23, 1988, a sultry day in Washington, James Hansen told Congress and the world that global warming wasn't approaching — it had already arrived. The testimony of the top NASA scientist, said Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley, was "the opening salvo of the age of climate change."
