S.China coast battens down as super typhoon nears

* Typhoon Megi could be worst typhoon in S. China in decades

* Hong Kong warns direct hit could cause very serious impact

* S. China ports and oil terminals shut, masses evacuated (Adds details throughout)

By James Pomfret

HONG KONG, Oct 21 (Reuters) – Ports and oil terminals in Hong Kong and southern China shut down operations on Thursday, forcing tankers to anchor offshore to ride out one of the biggest typhoons to threaten the South China coast in years.

53,000 fishing vessels had returned to port, while on the tropical resort island of Hainan, vulnerable to heavy flooding, as many as 200,000 people had been evacuated from low-lying areas along with another 150,000 from the southeastern coastal province of Fujian, the official Xinhua news agency said.

Marine authorities say the typhoon could generate a huge and destructive “50-year storm surge” along the China coastline.

“The storm surge could be so devastating that buildings, docks, villages and cities could be destroyed by it,” Bai Yiping, director of South China Sea Forecasting Center of the State Oceanic Administration was quoted as saying by Xinhua.

Geithner’s Goal: Rebalanced World Economy

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said he would use weekend meetings of G-20 finance ministers to advance efforts to “rebalance” the world economy so it is less reliant on U.S. consumers, to move toward establishing “norms” on exchange-rate policy, and to persuade others the U.S. doesn’t aim to devalue its way to prosperity.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Geithner said the world sorely needs to agree on guidelines for exchange-rate policy. “Right now, there is no established sense of what’s fair,” he said.

Dead Sea Scrolls Go Public and Digital

The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) is cooperating with Google Israel on a huge project: the creation of an online digital library that will finally display the Dead Sea scrolls to the general public, more than 50 years after their discovery. The scrolls include all of the books of the Bible and date from the late Second Temple period.

The project – The Leon Levy Digital Library of the Judean Desert Scrolls – will display 900 manuscripts online. The manuscripts are made up of about 30,000 pieces of different sizes. Besides a grant from the Leon Levy Fund, it is being underwritten by the Arcadia Fund and Yad HaNadiv Fund.

Waking Hades

Fearing a global catastrophe, the mayor of Naples may halt exploration of the massive volcano that lies under her city. But some scientists say inaction could be riskier.

It is a stretch of southern Italy known as the Phlegraean Fields, or “burning fields.”  According to Greek mythology, this is where the god of fire, Hephaestus, made his home and where an epic battle between the Titans and the world’s most powerful deities shook the earth.  The ancient Romans said the entrance to Hades was also here, hidden beneath a serene lake.

Thousands of years later, the site is still subject to epic forces, but the story is more science than myth.  The ground under the small fishing villages in this area around Naples is in constant slow movement because of volcanic activity deep below the surface. In Pozzuoli, a town just north of the city, the walls of the terra-cotta villages are falling down. The earth has risen and dipped more than 11 feet in the last decade, destroying roads, a hospital, and thousands of homes. Small tremors are common. On the outskirts of town, fields of boiling mud and dramatic sulfur spouts known as the Solfatara are a constant reminder that Naples sits on the Campi Flegrei caldera, or cauldron, one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes.

China evacuates 140,000, suspends transport as typhoon nears

Beijing – Local authorities had evacuated at least 140,000 people and suspended some transport services on Wednesday as Typhoon Megi approached southern China after killing 19 people in the Philippines.

The island province of Hainan and nearby Guangdong and Fujian provinces were placed on high alert for the typhoon, which was expected to make landfall in southern China on Thursday or Friday.

Weather forecasters warned that Megi could be the strongest typhoon to hit southern China in 20 years and could bring the highest tides for 200 years to some coastal areas.

The State Oceanic Administration forecast waves up to 7 metres high off Guangdong over the next two to three days, the China Daily newspaper said.

New Survey Indicates Large Oil Field Buried Under Negev Sand

A new preliminary geological survey indicates 26 million barrels of recoverable oil—worth $2 billion—may be sitting underneath the sandy soil in the area of two kibbutzim in the Western Negev, near Gaza.

Energtek announced it has received a geological survey on the Nir-am—Sa’ad block, “identifying the potential for exploitable oil and natural gas reserves.” Its subsidiary Energtek Products has the exclusive license to explore and exploit the resources in the area.

The firm added, “Current estimates will need to be confirmed by additional studies. Additional seismic analysis, modeling and further verifications are required to compile more accurate data on the fields and to provide more accurate reports on actual recoverable reserves.”
