  • FILE - This July 21, 2012 file photo shows bartender Alejandro Bolivar preparing a daiquiri at El Floridita tavern in Old Havana, Cuba, to honor the 195th anniversary of the bar and the anniversary of the birth of its most famous frequent customer, novelist Ernest Hemingway, of whom a life-sized sculpture sits barside.

  • Miami dredge project to restart, ending efforts to save coral

  • By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Friday denied a request from researchers seeking more time to save an underwater field of coral in a Miami channel where dredging is set to begin this weekend. "Taxpayers would be paying $50,000 to $100,000 a day to keep that dredge on standby and that's not happening," said Susan Jackson, a corps spokeswoman. Researchers began daily dives to gather coral in and around the dredge site on May 26 after Illinois-based dredging contractor Great Lakes Dredge & Dock finished relocating about 900 more mature corals to an artificial reef as required by the Army Corps of Engineers. "We've been able to remove more than 2,000 corals in less than two weeks and if we had another two weeks we'd get thousands more," said Colin Foord, a marine biologist and co-founder of Miami-based Coral Morphologic, which is part marine biology lab and part art and music studio.
  • Storm system moves east after battering central United States

  • By Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - A nasty storm system that has pelted homes and cars with hail up to the size of a baseball in the central Plains and caused flash floods is expected to bring high winds, more hail and possible tornadoes to the Ohio Valley on Wednesday, forecasters said. Southern Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, southern Ohio, West Virginia and Tennessee are in the path of the storm system, according to Bill Bunting, a forecaster at the National Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma. "I think we'll see reports of damaging winds and large hail and maybe an isolated tornado." Storms pounded parts of the central United States on Tuesday with reports of baseball-sized hail that smashed homes and cars in Nebraska and high winds that ripped off roofs in Iowa, where the high winds forced suspension of voting in a primary election in some areas. A dozen people suffered minor injuries after being struck by the outsized hailstones while fleeing for cover at a Walmart store in Blair, Nebraska, north of Omaha, Fire Chief Kent Nicholson said.

The storms were expected to move into eastern Missouri, central Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia on Wednesday, Bunting said.
  • What's in a (hurricane) name? More deaths: study

  • A plea for help is seen on the roof of a home flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New O..By Sharon Begley NEW YORK (Reuters) - Would more residents of New Orleans have evacuated ahead of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 if it had been named Kurt? As a result, strong Atlantic hurricanes with the most feminine names caused an estimated five times more deaths than those with the most masculine names, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign wrote in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Among those the World Meteorological Organization has chosen for 2014: Dolly, Josephine, and Vicky. When the National Hurricane Center began giving storms human names in 1953 with Alice, it used only women's. The first "male" Atlantic hurricane was Bob, in 1979.
