TORSHAVN, Faeroe Islands Thousands of sky-gazers on the Faeroe Islands are hoping for the clouds to part so that they can get a clear view of a total solar eclipse.

The tiny island group in the North Atlantic and the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard are the only places on land where the sun will be completely obscured by the moon during Friday’s eclipse.

Clouds are covering the sky over the capital, Torshavn, but with the sun occasionally breaking through, as the big moment nears.

More than 11,000 tourists, eclipse chasers and scientists with telescopes, cameras and glasses for safe direct solar viewing have invaded the Faeroes for the almost three-minute-long astronomical sensation.

The phenomenon will later be seen in Svalbard, more than 2,000 kilometers (1,270 miles) to the northeast.

Vanuatu islands destroyed after monster cyclone

One of the Pacific Oceans most powerful ever storms Cyclone Pam has devastated the island nation of Vanuatu, reportedly killing dozens, aid officials have said. The United Nations is preparing a major relief operation. Video: REUTERS

Reports from the outer islands of Vanuatu painted a picture of utter destruction after a huge cyclone tore through the South Pacific island nation, flattening buildings and killing at least 24 people.

Disaster management officials and relief workers have struggled to establish contact with the islands that bore the brunt of Cyclone Pams winds of more than 300km/h, which destroyed homes, smashed boats and washed away roads and bridges as it struck late on Friday and into Saturday.

Twenty-four people were confirmed killed, and 3,300 displaced and sheltering at 37 evacuation centres, according to a statement by the National Disaster Management Office. But the number could rise as communications are restored with outlying islands of the scattered archipelago.

Many of the buildings and houses have been completely destroyed, Vanuatu president Baldwin Lonsdale said. More than 90 per cent of the buildings have been destroyed. The president said climate change was partly to blame for the devastation across Vanuatu.

Oxfam Irelands chief executive Jim Clarken said the damage left in the wake of the cyclone was likely to be one of the worst disasters ever seen in the Pacific.

There is no power at the hospital which has also flooded in parts, and damage to the state mortuary means a temporary mortuary must be set up quickly, he said.

Port Vila, the capital, which took the full force of the category 5 storm, was recently named in the Natural Hazards Risk Atlas as the city most exposed to natural disasters in the world. The city faces a combination of risks including earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding and tropical cyclones.

Reports from aid groups said the main town on the island of Erromango, north of Tanna, had suffered similar destruction.

'Like a Freight Train': Cyclone Smashes Pacific Islands

Thousands of people are in need of food and shelter after a deadly cyclone ripped through the Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu, aid agencies warned Monday, as relief teams struggled to survey the full extent of the damage.

Cyclone Pam a Category 5 storm with winds of more than 185 mph tore through the islands on Friday and Saturday, killing at least six people and leaving what aid workers described as a complete disaster in her wake.

Assessing the full extent of the damage has been difficult, with communications largely severed with the outer islands as phone and power lines were down. Vanuatu’s President Baldwin Lonsdale said the storm had “wiped out” development and forced the nation to start anew.

“This is a very devastating cyclone in Vanuatu,” he told The Associated Press from Japan. “I term it as a monster, a monster.”

Ronald Vudui, manager of the Warhorse Saloon Bar and Restaurant in the capital of Port Vila, said the island was “pretty much in chaos at the moment.”

“We’re in trouble,” he told NBC News. “Some people have lost everything. Their houses have been destroyed, their crops are gone, and they are living in the dark and the wet just trying to recover.”

Vudui, a 38-year-old born and bred on the island, said that despite suffering minor damage his was one of the few buildings that had managed to restore power. He even managed to open the bar’s doors Monday night, he said, in a bid to nurture community spirit.

“Everyone has been checking on everyone else, that’s the mood,” he said. “You can’t just give up. We’re a small community but a strong one.”

Despite the damage wrought upon Port Vila, Vudui’s real concern was for Vanuatu’s outer islands. “We have concrete walls here; they do not,” he explained.

UNICEF said that its staffer Alice Clements was in the capital of Port Vila when the storm hit and said “it felt like the world was coming to an end.”

Historic cyclone batters small islands in Pacific – VIDEO: Dozens feared dead after storm

WELLINGTON, New Zealand Officials struggled Sunday to determine the scale of the devastation wrought by a monstrous cyclone that tore through the tiny South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu, with death counts varying in the single digits but expected to rise once communications are restored with outlying islands.

Cyclone Pam tore through Vanuatu early Saturday, packing winds of 168 miles per hour, and leaving a trail of destruction and unconfirmed reports of dozens of deaths.

Two people were confirmed dead in the capital, Port Vila, with another 20 injured there, said Paolo Malatu, coordinator for the National Disaster Management Office. Earlier, Chloe Morrison, a World Vision emergency communications officer, said Vanuatu’s disaster response office told her agency that at least eight people died. She had also heard reports of entire villages being destroyed in more remote areas.

The confusion over the death toll is due largely to a near-total communications blackout across the country. With power lines and phone circuits down, officials in the capital had no way of knowing what the scope of the damage was on the outer islands, where the storm scored a direct hit.

“We haven’t been able to communicate outside Port Vila,” Malatu said. “At this point, the damage is severe and we haven’t had figures of how many houses destroyed. … It’s really bad, it’s really bad.”

Officials are planning to head to the outer islands Monday in helicopters, small planes and military aircraft to get a better sense of the destruction, Malatu said.

Telephone networks are notoriously spotty in South Pacific island nations such as Vanuatu, particularly in the aftermath of storms. It often takes days before networks can be restored, making it incredibly difficult for officials to quickly analyze the breadth of devastation following natural disasters.

Vanuatu’s government has declared a nationwide state of emergency, and Australia and New Zealand have sent in relief supplies. Port Vila’s airport was damaged by the storm and closed for commercial flights, but the first delivery of supplies arrived Sunday from the Red Cross, Malatu said.

“People are really upset and it’s really hard, just because for the last couple of years, we haven’t received a really big cyclone like this one,” said Isso Nihmei, Vanuatu coordinator for the environmental and crisis response group 350. “Most people right now, they are really homeless.”

Cyclone Pam was dropping rain at rate of 6.2 inches per hour (NASA)

An extremely powerful cyclone lashed islands in the Pacific Oceans Vanuatu archipelago late Friday, packing 168-mile-an-hour winds.

The storm may have caused deaths in Vanuatus northeastern islands, the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported.

The cyclone made a direct hit on populated areas after a sudden change of direction.

The Category 5 cyclone had average wind speeds of 155 mph to 168 mph, with gusts up to 211 mph, according to the office. It said the periphery of the eye of the storm had passed over islands that are home to several thousand people and was expected to hit or come close to the island of Efate, home to the capital, Port Vila.

NASA said Pam was a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale when its Aqua satellite passed overhead Friday. Aqua saw the eye of the major hurricane just to the east of Vanuatu

Located about a quarter of the way from Australia to Hawaii, Vanuatu has a population of 267,000 spread over 65 islands. About 47,000 people live in the capital.

Vanuatu had earlier issued a red alert to its residents, urging them to take shelter from Pam. Authorities said they feared the cyclone would destroy homes as well as cause landslides and severe coastal flooding.

Authorities in New Zealand are preparing for the storm, which is forecast to pass north of the country on Sunday and Monday.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

A powerful cyclone descends upon the Pacific island chain of Vanuatu on Friday.

Wellington, New Zealand An extremely powerful cyclone blew over islands in the Pacific’s Vanuatu archipelago late Friday after a westward change of course put populated areas directly in the path of its destructive 270 kilometer- (168 mile-) per-hour winds, according to relief workers.

The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in a release there were unconfirmed reports of deaths in Vanuatu’s northeastern islands after Cyclone Pam moved off its expected track.

The Category 5 cyclone had average wind speeds of 250 kph to 270 kph, with gusts up to 340 kph, according to the office. It said the periphery of the eye of the storm had passed over islands that are home to several thousand people and was expected to hit or come close to the island of Efate, home to the capital, Port Vila.

Located about a quarter of the way from Australia to Hawaii, Vanuatu has a population of 267,000 spread over 65 islands. About 47,000 people live in the capital.

Vanuatu had earlier issued a red alert to its residents, urging them to take shelter from Pam.

Authorities said they feared the cyclone would destroy homes as well as cause landslides and severe coastal flooding.

The cyclone has already destroyed some homes and caused damage to other Pacific islands including Kiribati and the Solomon Islands.

David Gibson, acting director of the Vanuatu meteorology and geo-hazards department, said the winds could cause severe damage to the nation’s buildings.

Alice Clements, a spokeswoman for relief agency UNICEF who is in Port Vila, said earlier Friday the capital was like a ghost town as people took shelter. She said the pelting rain was blown horizontally by the wind.

Balearic Islands – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Islands  Comments Off on Balearic Islands – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Feb 072015
 

The Balearic Islands (English / /; Catalan: Illes Balears [iz as]; Spanish: Islas Baleares [islas aleaes])[1][2][3] are an archipelago of Spain in the western Mediterranean Sea, near the eastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula.

The four largest islands are: Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera. The archipelago forms an autonomous community and a province of Spain, with Palma de Mallorca as the capital. The co-official languages in the Balearic Islands are Catalan and Spanish. The current Statute of Autonomy declares the Balearic Islands as one nationality of Spain.[4]

The official name of the Balearic Islands in Catalan is Illes Balears, while in Spanish they are known as the Islas Baleares. The term “Balearic” derives from Greek (/Gymnesiae and /Balliareis).[5] In Latin (Baleares).

Of the various theories on the origins of the two ancient Greek and Latin names for the islands Gymnasiae and Baleares classical sources provide two.

According to the Lycophron’s Alexandra verses, the islands were called /Gymnesiae (/gymnos, meaning naked in Greek) because its inhabitants were often nude, probably because of the year-round benevolent climate.

The Greek and Roman writers generally derive the name of the people from their skill as slingers (/baleareis, from /ballo: ancient Greek meaning “to launch”), although Strabo regards the name as of Phoenician origin. He observed it was the Phoenician equivalent for lightly armoured soldiers the Greeks would have called /gymnetas.[6] The root bal does point to a Phoenician origin; perhaps the islands were sacred to the god Baal[original research?] and the resemblance to the Greek root (in /ballo) is accidental. Indeed it was usual Greek practice to assimilate local names into their own language. But the common Greek name of the islands is not /Baleareis, but /Gymnesiai. The former was the name used by the natives, as well as by the Carthaginians and Romans,[7] while the latter probably derives from the light equipment of the Balearic troops /gymnetae.[6]

The main islands of the autonomous community are Majorca (Mallorca), Minorca (Menorca), Eivissa (Ibiza) and Formentera, all of which are popular tourist destinations. Among the minor islands is Cabrera, which is the location of the Parc Nacional de l’Arxiplag de Cabrera.

The islands can be further grouped, with Majorca, Minorca, and Cabrera as the Gymnesian Islands (Illes Gimnsies), and Ibiza and Formentera as the Pityusic Islands (Illes Pitises officially in Catalan), also referred to as the Pityuses (or sometimes informally in English as the Pine Islands). There are many minor islands or islets close to the biggest islands, such as Es Conills, Es Vedr, Sa Conillera, Dragonera, S’Espalmador, S’Espardell, Ses Bledes, Santa Eulria, Plana, Foradada, Tagomago, Na Redona, Colom, L’Aire, etc.

The Balearic Front is a sea density regime north of the Balearic Islands on the shelf slope of the Balearic Islands, which is responsible for some of the surface flow characteristics of the Balearic Sea.[8]

Located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, the Balearic Islands unsurprisingly have typical Mediterranean climates. The below-listed climatic data of the capital Palma is typical for the archipelago, with minor differences to other stations in Majorca, Ibiza and Menorca.[9]
