Three things you need to know today.
Japan typhoon: About 80,000 residents have been ordered to flee and more than 1 million people were urged to evacuate Nagoya, a city in central Japan, Tuesday as a typhoon was expected to hit the area.
Despite the evacuation warnings, a little more than 60 people had evacuated the city by Tuesday afternoon, the city government said. More were expected to leave in the evening as the storm came closer.
Typhoon Roke was packing winds of 185 kph (115 mph) and was predicted to make landfall with heavy rain some time Wednesday, said CNN meteorologist Jennifer Delgado.
The storm was expected to hit south of Osaka and could drench some areas with about 250 mm (10 inches) of rain, Delgado said.
Two areas in the Nagoya were ordered to evacuate because of the threat of flooding from the Shonai River, officials said.
SeaWorld hearing: A federal hearing continues Tuesday to determine whether SeaWorld Orlando should be charged with a willful violation in the 2010 death of killer whale trainer Dawn Brancheau.
Monday was the first day of the hearing at the Seminole County Courthouse in Sanford, Florida.
In February 2010, as park guests watched in horror, Brancheau, 40, was pulled into a SeaWorld pool and drowned by a 12,000-pound killer whale named Tilikum. Brancheau had been sitting on the Shamu Stadium's pool edge during a private show.
After a lengthy investigation, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration - the federal agency that works to prevent workplace injuries - cited SeaWorld of Florida in August 2010 for willfully endangering employees by not taking proper safety precautions.
Listeria deaths: Up to seven deaths in four states may be linked to a Listeriosis outbreak that the Centers for Disease Control believes originated at a cantaloupe farm in Colorado, the Denver Post reports.
The deaths have been reported in Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Missouri, according to the Denver Post report. Overall, 35 cases are reported in 10 states, the Post said.
Jensen Farms recalled its cantaloupe harvest on September 14, the Post reported.
Typhoon Roke sounds really bad. I guess we in America don't make a big deal of it because it's there and not here, 115 mi winds can do a lot of damage to the real estate with possiabe deaths.
Condolences to the families who have lost loved ones.
That's a lot of water...
@Raven: I don't think the killer whales are viciously "attacking" people, they just don't realise how fragile their playmates are.
We are so small, yet some of our egos are so large and nature will take care of the rest.
I thoughta that too, justathought. But theyre pretty intelligent animals and surely they know what death is. And it wasnt the first or even second time this particular animal killed a human. It make me wonder just whats intentions were: play or frustration? Til we learn their language I guess its a mystery .
killer whales kill...thats why they are called KILLER WHALES. i think people who work with these whales understand that their life can be taken away from them any time at work.
Most animals kill...
The whale had killed a person before this and Sea World knew this. I do not know if the young lady new about it before her death though.
Here in Texas we call salt & lime "training wheels"! The trick of course is to shoot really top notch tequila (or tekillya), like Herradura or Patron! Otherwise.....bleeech! God Morgon, all! Have a great Tuesday!! :)
She was at least the third dead from that whale. In maybe late 1990's a gentle man was found like her in his tank. Not much publicity about it.
2 People die and over 1 million asked to flee. Hey why did my country the USA dropped nuclear bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima . Was there any warning.. given to the residents.. Does HYPOCRISY come to mind. dudes..
