20 September 2017 2:11 AM The Latest: Buildings tumbled in Mexican town near epicenter

Buildings collapsed, including the town hall and local church, in the town of Jojutla in southern Morelos state, which was close to the epicenter of Tuesday’s magnitude 7.1 quake. Twelve people died in the town. The Instituto Morelos secondary school partly collapsed, but school director Adelina Anzures said the earthquake drill the school held in the morning

19 September 2017 6:30 PM Trump Vows to ‘Totally Destroy’ North Korea if It Threatens U.S

“No nation on Earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles,” Mr. Trump said. “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime 1

12 September 2017 1:22 AM Earthquake triggers 'slow motion' quakes in New Zealand

Slow slip events, a type of slow motion earthquake that occurs over days to weeks, are thought to be capable of triggering larger, potentially damaging earthquakes. In a new study led by The University of Texas at Austin, scientists have documented the first clear-cut instance of the reverse--a massive earthquake immediately triggering a series of large 8

11 September 2017 7:37 PM 'Silent' quakes in Kaikoura's wake

Last year's 7.8 Kaikoura earthquake produced what one Kiwi scientist says is perhaps the world's clearest-yet case of rippling waves from a big shake setting off a far-away, deep-seated, slow-burning quake. What are called "slow-slip" events are very similar to earthquakes, because they involve more-rapid-than-normal movement between two pieces of the Earth's 5

11 September 2017 8:16 AM The Daily 202: Hurricane Irma would have killed vastly more people in the past

THE BIG IDEA: Five deaths related to Hurricane Irma have now been confirmed in Florida. Two of the victims died in a car crash southeast of Tampa on Sunday: A sheriff’s deputy had been stationed in an evacuation shelter overnight and was driving home at about 6 a.m. to pick up more supplies. A corrections officer was on his way to work. Any loss of life is a tragedy 6

10 September 2017 9:51 AM After slamming Keys, Irma to batter Florida Peninsula, with ‘catastrophic’ storm surge feared

The extremely dangerous Category 4 Irma crashed into the Florida Keys on Sunday morning, unleashing violent wind gusts and storm-surge flooding. Florida’s western coast next faces Irma’s wrath, and forecasters fear this storm will go down as one of the worst in the state’s history. Winds in excess of 100 mph could batter numerous population centers along 8

10 September 2017 2:58 AM Jacinda has the talk but Greens have the walk

Sunday, September 10: In response to the Greens’ climate policy announcements today, Greenpeace climate campaigner, Kate Simcock, says the Greens should be applauded for their climate policy. “It’s exactly the sort of response to the biggest threat facing humanity that we need to see from our leaders. All political parties should be adopting this policy 4

9 September 2017 5:01 PM Labour is now in a position of choice. The ball is in National’s court to respond, perhaps with a lurch across the centre line, Alex Tarrant writes

Labour has options. A two-party coalition with New Zealand First, or a trio with the Greens and Maori Party. This week’s 1 News Colmar Brunton poll was what Jacinda Ardern has been hoping for. Of course, a lot of water is still to flow under the bridge. National is still in with a shout if it can stop its numbers from falling – it can’t afford any more weakness 20

9 September 2017 3:24 PM Dangerous Hurricane Irma bears down on Florida, its brunt targeting the Keys to Tampa

Large and extremely powerful, Hurricane Irma is sweeping toward Florida, its outer rainbands and strong winds already lashing the southern peninsula. If the storm reaches its full potential, it could be one of the worst hurricanes in the state’s history. The latest computer model forecasts suggest the vicious storm is likely to ride up Florida’s west coast 6

8 September 2017 1:39 PM Strongest earthquake to hit Mexico in decades kills at least 34

JUCHITAN, Mexico (Reuters) - At least 34 people were killed when the most powerful earthquake to hit Mexico in decades tore through buildings, forced mass evacuations and triggered alerts as far away as Southeast Asia. The 8.1 magnitude quake off the southern coast late on Thursday was stronger than a devastating 1985 temblor that flattened swathes of Mexico 7
