Two schools in Alabama were hit by a severe weather/tornado.

North Dakota to Maine is being forewarned of a "significant winter storm"
suggested was
• Monitor weather forecasts closely for expected conditions in the area
• Use extreme care driving in icy conditions. Stay off the roads if possible.
• Stay away from downed power lines; report outages and downed lines to your electric utility
• If the power goes out, use generators and alternate heat sources safely. Never run a generator in a basement or attached garage. Carbon monoxide poisoning may result.
• Check on neighbors, family and friends who may need special assistance


2008 disaster's expense was second only to 2005
Cyclone Nargis, which hit Myanmar in May, was the most deadly event of 2008 so far, claiming an estimated 84,500 lives. The most costly was May's earthquake in China.

Munich Re said in a study with the U.N. Environment Programme that weather-related disasters seemed to be on the rise, in line with forecasts by the U.N. Climate Panel that blames mankind for global warming.

"Since the 1980s, earthquakes have risen by around 50 percent but weather-related hazards such as major floods have increased by as much as 350 per cent and those from wind storms have doubled," the report said.

The rise in more extreme weather is leading to greater risks for vulnerable countries and communities while straining global insurance markets, the organisations said in a statement.

December 2008

10-11 Fine for planting beans, peppers, cucumbers, melons and other above ground crops, where climate is suitable.

12-13 Seeds planted now tend to rot in ground.

14-15 Most good days for planting beets, onions, turnips, and other root crops, where climate allows. Plant seedbeds and flower gardens.

16-21 A most barren period. Kill plant pests and do general farm work.

22-23 Good day for planting root crops, fine for sowing grains, hay and forage crops. Plant flowers.

24-25 Plant carrots, beets, onions, turnips, Irish potatoes and other root crops in the south. Lettuce, cabbage, collards and other leafy vegetables will do well. Start seed beds.

26-28 Do no planting.

29-30 Plant sweet corn, beans, peppers and other above ground crops, where climate is suitable.

31 Good days for killing weeds, briars and other plant pests, poor for planting.
