Thousands flee in Philippines as big typhoon nears

Thursday, 07 November 2013 03:47 Published in National News

   MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Thousands of villagers in the central Philippines, including those from a province devastated by a recent earthquake, were being evacuated Thursday as one of the most powerful typhoons globally this year approaches.

   Typhoon Haiyan was already packing sustained winds of 215 kilometers (134 miles) per hour and ferocious gusts of 250 kph (155 mph), and could pick up strength over the Pacific Ocean before it slams into the eastern Philippine province of Eastern Samar on Friday, according to government forecasters.

   The U.S. Navy's Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Hawaii said it was the strongest tropical cyclone in the world this year, although Cyclone Phailin, which hit eastern India on Oct. 12, packed winds of up to 222 kph (138 mph) and stronger gusts.

   Governors and mayors were supervising the evacuation of thousands of residents away from landslide- and flood-prone communities in several provinces where the typhoon is expected to pass, said Eduardo del Rosario, head of the government's main disaster-response agency.

   President Benigno Aquino III has ordered officials to aim for zero casualties, a goal often broken in an archipelago lashed by about 20 storms each year, most of them deadly and destructive. Haiyan is the 24th such storm to hit the Philippines this year.

   Edgardo Chatto, the governor of Bohol island province in the central Philippines, where an earthquake last month killed more than 200 people, said that soldiers, police and rescue units were helping displaced residents, including thousands still in small tents, move to shelters. The typhoon was not forecast to directly hit Bohol but the province was still expected to be battered by strong wind and rain, government forecaster Jori Loiz said.

   Army troops were helping transport food packs and other relief goods in hard-to-reach communities and rescue helicopters are on stand-by, the military said.

   "My worst fear is that the eye of this typhoon will hit us. I hope we will be spared," Chatto told The Associated Press by telephone.

   Haiyan was forecast to barrel through the country's central region Friday and Saturday before it blows toward the South China Sea on Sunday, heading toward Virtnam. It was not expected to hit the densely populated capital, Manila, in the north, Loiz said.

Court swings other way on red light camera issue

Thursday, 07 November 2013 03:02 Published in Local News

   Red light camera tickets could become a thing of the past in Missouri.  That's because of a state appeals court ruling Tuesday of this week.  

   The Eastern District court in St. Louis overturned it's own precedent when it found Ellisville's red light camera ordinance was in conflict with state law because the tickets are issued to the vehicle owner and not the driver.  

   Two years ago the court had upheld a similar Creve Coeur law, but now says that ruling is "no longer good law."  

   The Arizona-based company that operates the cameras in Ellisville and several other municipalities says it will appeal to the Missouri Supreme Court.

Bradford surgery postponed due to swelling

Thursday, 07 November 2013 01:58 Published in Sports

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have postponed quarterback Sam Bradford's knee surgery, which had been scheduled for Tuesday, due to swelling.

   Coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday no new date has been set for the procedure to repair a torn left ACL, but anticipated it would be soon. The team previously announced the surgery would be done by Dr. James Andrews, who also operated on the quarterback's shoulder at Oklahoma.

   Bradford has been exercising to strengthen the knee and quadriceps prior to surgery. He's also been on his feet a lot at practice and on game days.

   Backup Kellen Clemens makes his third straight start Sunday at Indianapolis.
