Another dust effect I never knew about. They may be suffering in the heat but the dust might have suppressed a hurricane, maybe even the one that would have rendered Miami Beach uninhabitable, a fair trade I would say.

Rescue efforts are underway in the southern Asian state of Myanmar following a deadly landslide at a jade mine in the northern state of Kachin.

Officials confirmed on Thursday afternoon that at least 162 people were killed in the landslide, which occurred early Thursday local time in the gem-rich area of Hpakant, and 26 others were sent to a hospital with injuries, according to the Myanmar Fire Services Department's Facebook page.

We are having a very different summer so far this year in BC. After the record-breaking fire seasons several years in a row, the province had really bumped up our firefighting resources, but this year it is all about floods, the latest caused by very unusual heavy rainfall in the North and Central BC, so some of the fire crews are being converted into flood control crews.

If it's not one thing, it's another...

Yes your weather has been very unstable for a few years going. Your patterns have an unruly nature and quite frankly I don't know why.
Here in NJ we went from a very cold and rainy April and May to hot and humid in June. We are gonna have a very hot day tomorrow forecast is 96f and Saturday we get a back door cold front but only for a day. That will lift back North as a warm front on Sunday and then starting Monday were looking at 95f highs all week. Not unusual for us this time of year. My State has been in good shape all of June with the COVID19 and yesterday we had a huge spike up in cases and deaths which I doubt is an isolated incident. They opened Atlantic City Casino's today along with the amusement park. Pretty stupid move if you ask me but of course they did it because of the 4th of July holiday and the long hot summer expected.So they are are desperate for revenue. Lets see what NJ looks like by Aug 1st. (smh)

Stay safe, Benny. The massive outbreaks across the US are caused by bad leadership and opening back up waaaaaaaaaay too early, so I have my fingers crossed for NJ.

We have done very well here in BC -- over 4M people, many with strong connections to Asia, but under 2500 cases and under 200 deaths, almost all in retirement home outbreaks. The weather we are having -- the daily highs are at least 5C below seasonal norms over our long weekend -- is probably helping by keeping people away from places where they might get careless.

Crazy weather all across Western Canada!

- Lots of flooding in southern Manitoba due to unseasonable heavy rains, with a dam threatening to burst

- A tornado and softball-sized hail in Saskatchewan globalnews.ca

- And most of BC is under some kind of a fllod warning or alert, with many roads out.

But, finally the sun has come out in Vancouver and the temperature is not 5-10C under seasonal normals, so I am happy.
