While the storm is moving away from the Mid Atlantic coast, there are still hazards impacting the U.S. Swells generated by Arthur are expected to affect portions of the mid-Atlantic and southeast U.S.
Camera IconProtesters with placards participate in The Global Strike 4 Climate rally in Sydney a year ago. Global stay-at-home orders have caused a dramatic plunge in carbon emissions. In early April, the researchers found, the regions responsible for 89% of global emissions were under some type of lockdown. They studied energy data and weather data sourced from different sources in more than 400 cities and 130 countries to produce daily estimates of carbon emissions for 2019 and 2020.

The X-37B is an autonomous reusable spaceplane sent to low Earth orbit for long missions that can last up to two years. One of the experiments will test the effect of radiation on seeds and other materials.
That's when more than 20 tornadoes touched down in SC, with eight confirmed in the Midlands region - the most significant outbreak for the area since March 28, 1984, according to the NWS. "In addition, hazardous marine conditions will spread northward during the next few days, likely causing unsafe surf and rip currents along much of the southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts of the U.S", NHC said in its latest update.
The X-37B rocketed toward orbit Sunday morning from Cape Canaveral, Florida, a day late because of bad weather. It's the sixth flight of an X-37B, a solar-powered plane that's flown by remote control without a crew. The launch was dedicated to front line workers and those affected by the pandemic. "The success of this mission resulted from collaboration with our customer while working through challenging, and ever changing, health and safety conditions", said Gary Wentz, ULA vice president ...
