STORM SOAKS ROADS, SHUTS DOWN STREETS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
Several Southern California roads were shut down due to the storm conditions.
Both sides of the 5 Freeway at Sheldon Street in Sun Valley were temporarily shut down as big rigs and other vehicles struggled to move through floodwaters on the road. By Friday night, one lane was back open in each direction, Caltrans officials said.
Burbank police also closed the northbound Buena Vista on-ramp to the 5 Freeway due to flooding. It was unclear how long the closure would last. Traffic was reduced to two lanes on the northbound 5 at Alameda Avenue in Burbank due to a sink hole on the highway.

Earth's Magnetic Field Is Drifting Westward, and Nobody Knows Why Over the 400 years or so that humans have been measuring Earth's magnetic field, it has drifted inexorably to the west. Now, a new hypothesis suggests that weird waves in Earth's outer core may cause this drift. The slow waves, called Rossby waves, arise in rotating fluids. They're also known as "planetary waves," and they're found in many large, rotating bodies, including on Earth in the oceans and atmosphere and on Jupiter and the sun. Earth's outer core is also a rotating fluid, meaning Rossby waves circulate in the core, too. Whereas oceanic and atmospheric Rossby waves have crests that move westward against Earth's eastward rotation, Rossby waves in the core are "a bit like turning atmospheric Rossby waves inside out," said O.P. Bardsley, a doctoral student at the University of Cambridge in England, and the author of a new study on the Rossby wave hypothesis. Their crest…
Southern hemisphere produced its largest wave on record A massive 23.8 m (78 feet) high wave has been measured near Campbell Island, New Zealand on May 9, 2018, making it the largest wave ever recorded in the southern hemisphere.
A new ocean buoy, installed March 2, 2018 and located about 640 km (400 miles) south of New Zealand's South Island, measured a maximum wave height of 23.8 m (78 feet). The previous record for the southern hemisphere was a 22.03 m (72 feet) high wave registered off the Australian state of Tasmania in 2012.
"This is a very exciting event and to our knowledge, it is the largest wave ever recorded in the southern hemisphere," Dr. Tom Durrant, a senior oceanographer at the MetOcean, part of New Zealand's Met Service, said.
"Our own previous record was one year ago when we measured a 19.4 m (63.6 feet) wave, and before that, in 2012 an Australian buoy recorded a maximum individual wave (Hmax) of 22.03 m. So, this is a very im…
