Thunderstorms complicate recovery effort following huge explosions at China’s …
News from Minneapolis Star Tribune:

TIANJIN, China — Thunderstorms Tuesday complicated recovery efforts from last week’s massive explosions at a warehouse in China’s Tianjin port that killed at least 114 people, left 57 missing and exposed dangerous chemicals — including some that could become flammable on contact with water.

Experts have expressed concern that rain could spread some of the vast quantities of hazardous material at the site or set off chemical reactions sparking further explosions. Rain began falling mid-morning, but there was no immediate word of new blasts.

Underscoring the weakness of China’s system of industrial safety, the head of the national organization responsible for those efforts has been placed under investigation for suspected “severe violation of discipline and law” — standard shorthand for corruption — the ruling Communist Party’s anti-graft watchdog said Tuesday.

No details were given about the allegations against Yang Dongliang, who was appointed head of the State Administration of Work Safety three years ago and also worked in state industry and local government in Tianjin for 18 years, including as a vice mayor from 2001 to 2012.

The storms began shortly after residents, firefighters, police, medical staff and officials held a moment of silence marking the sixth day since the disaster, the first observance in the 49…………… continues on Minneapolis Star Tribune

Deep silt hindering recovery of sunken boat at Penn Cove

Deep silt hindering recovery of sunken boat at Penn Cove
News from The Seattle Times:

When there is so much silt that you can’t even find the bottom, the task of hoisting up the derelict, 140-foot fishing boat that caught fire and sank at Penn Cove off Whidbey Island is daunting.

But progress was made late Thursday afternoon, when divers managed to put a chain in place under the stern of the boat.

Now they will work to do the same thing under the bow. The boat is sitting sideways at a depth of 50 to 60 feet.

Below that is at least an additional 25 feet of silt, said Dick Walker, the state Department of Ecology’s on-scene coordinator.

He said crews on one of two barges that will be used to lift the ship tried this week to put down pilings to the bottom for anchor. Problem was, they couldn’t find the bottom.

“It is very light silt, not compacted at all, just muck all the way down,” Walker said. “It’s causing huge problems. There is just nothing firm down there.”

The Seattle-based company of Global Diving & Salvage has been contracted to extricate the boat that sank May 13 and led to the shutdown of the island’s world-famous mussel farm. Now is the mussels’ peak spawning season and their harvest has been closed until cleared by toxicity tests. Global Diving will either refloat the boat or place it on a barge and take it to a shipyard.

Walker said divers have been using jet air pumps to blast out trenches…………… continues on The Seattle Times
