Authorities arrested a 13-year-old boy on Saturday morning in connection with the stabbing death of a boy outside an East Los Angeles middle school, officials said.

LA County Sheriff's deputies arrested the boy at his East LA home between 1:30 and 2:30 a.m., a watch commander with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

It came hours after a 14-year-old boy was stabbed with scissors outside David Wark Griffith Middle School. The boy, whose identity hasn't been released, was attacked at 3:08 p.m. Friday and died at a local hospital, officials said.

He was a student at a nearby high school, according to Los Angeles Unified School District officials; it was unclear if his attacker was a student at either school.

Information about the boy in custody was not immediately available.

"Charlie Hebdo" Hits US Newsstands

The magazine at the center of the terror attacks in France two weeks ago is being sold in the United States, including at a newsstand in San Diego. 

The French satirical newspaper hit American newsstands Friday.

NBC News has decided not to show the controversial cover showing the Prophet Mohammed carrying a sign that says in French, "I am Charlie."  Twenty-thousand copies will be offered in the United States, according to LPMI, a distributor of foreign magazines and newspapers in the U-S and Canada.

Copies of Charlie Hebdo got to the North Park newsstand Friday afternoon.  The manager, Ken Gabbara, said it has been flying off the shelves.  He ordered 200 copies and had has already sold half.

Gabbara expects he has enough to get through the weekend and will evaluate to see if he needs to order more on Monday. Gabbara said he is not worried about negative feedback.

“We're doing it for the sake of history. People want a little piece of history," he said. "I carry like over 4,000 magazines in here. There's a lot of things that I agree and disagree with but it's for people's choices. If they want to read about it, we give them the opportunity.”

Bijan Izadi, who purchased a copy of the magazine, said he wanted to read the magazine.

“If you are not able to speak freely and if other people are infringing on that and threatening your life for that reason it's not right," Izadi said.

This shipment of 20,000 to the United States follows a shipment of 300 that made it to major cities like San Francisco and  New York. Copies are sold for $12.99 plus tax.

Rocket Launcher Near Calif. Freeway

A military rocket launcher was discovered on the side of the I-15 Freeway in Riverside County, California, Thursday afternoon, officials said.

It was unclear who the weapon belonged to, said a Riverside County Sheriff's Department spokesman. Rocket launchers are illegal to own, though some are occasionally found in California.

Workers clearing brush from the side of the highway in Murrieta found the rocket launcher, according to Patch, which first reported the discovery.

The AT-4 tube had no munitions inside, officials said. Its manufacturer's web page described it as "one of the most successful anti-armour weapons ever developed," effective against armorded vehicles and aircraft.

A rocket launcher was returned to law enforcement at a 2013 gun buyback in Solano County, and officers in 2012 found a rocket launcher while executing a search warrant in Paramount.

An employee at a Manhattan Home Depot argued with a co-worker and fatally shot him before killing himself Sunday afternoon, police said.

The shootings occurred at about 2:30 p.m. inside the crowded store on West 23rd Street.

Hundreds of store employees and customers scrambled for safety when the gunfire erupted, witnesses said.

Police say 31-year-old Calvin Esdaile exchanged words with his co-worker, 38-year-old Sy Moctar, pulled out a gun and shot him multiple times.

Esdaile then shot himself in the head, police said. Moctar was Esdaile's supervisor, sources said.

"It sounded like fireworks, but more because it's enclosed, so you could hear the echoes," said Emilio Bantero, who was shopping inside the store.

Investigators didn't disclose the nature of the argument that led to the shooting.

"We're deeply saddened by this tragedy," said Stephen Holmes, a spokesman for Home Depot. "We are fully cooperating with the authorities on their investigation of what appears to have been an isolated incident."

Governor, CL&P Urge Residents to Be Prepared for Blizzard

0

The governor and power company officials are urging residents to be prepared for the possible blizzard approaching.

"Although storms can be unpredictable, this storm has the potential to have a significant impact on the state and we need to be prepared," Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said in a written statement. "Just as the state is monitoring and preparing, the public should do the same."

Connecticut Light and Power also is warning residents to be prepared in the event of "prolonged outages" due to the blizzard and the possibility that massive amounts of snow and high winds could knock trees and branches onto the power lines.

In 2011, CL&P was under fire after a snowstorm in October caused statewide power outages, some lasting as long as a week and a half. The power company underwent a change in leadership soon after.

CL&P employs 400 line workers, but the power company is also calling in outside crews before the storm hits, according to a news release. The power company is also ensuring that its vehicles are ready to brave potentially slippery roads during the blizzard and placing "employees and materials in locations across the state," CL&P officials said. 

The state Department of Transportation is getting its "entire fleet of snow plows, including 12 loader-mounted snow blowers" ready to clear the roads, the governor's office said, as the state prepares for about 15 to 30 inches of snow. Treatment on the roads from the weekend snowstorm should help "pretreat the roads" as the potential blizzard rolls in Monday.

CL&P customers can report power outages to 1-800-286-2000 or through the mobile website.

Dora B. Schriro, commissioner of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DEMHS), said that emergency services officials are "monitoring this storm very closely" and "prepared to coordinate any potential state response."

DEMHS will have conference calls with the National Weather Service to stay updated on the storm, according to Malloy's office . The governor plans on providing updates on weather conditions to the state.

The governor's office also encourages residents to have emergency kits ready just in case that contain the following items:

  • 1 gallon of bottled water per person for at least three days for drinking and washing.
  • Non-perishable food for residents and pets to last three days.
  • Prescription medication to last three days.
  • A radio that's battery-powered or that you can crank by hand or a NOAA Weather Radio that has a tone alert, as well as extra batteries for each.
  • A flashlight and additional batteries.
  • A first aid kit.
  • An emergency whistle.
  • Towelettes that are moist.
  • Plastic trash bags with ties.
  • A wrench or pliers you can use to shut off utilities.
  • A can opener that works manually.
  • Maps.
  • Any cell phones and charges, as well as inverters or solar chargers.
  • Additional fuel for your generator.

The body of a missing Pennsylvania teacher was found Sunday in the Schuylkill River, according to police and his family members.

A body was pulled from the Schuylkill around 1:20 p.m. The body was discovered in the water off Kelly Drive near the Falls Bridge in East Falls. Both police and family members later confirmed the body is that of 40-year-old Christopher Tully.

Tully, 40, had gone missing after jumping out of his parent's car along the City Avenue Bridge near East Falls on Jan. 6. He was last seen running south on City Avenue towards the Schuylkill Expressway.

Tully, an award-winning teacher at the Middle Bucks Institute of Technology and father of three, suffered from depression and was on his way to treatment when he ran away, said his loved ones.

"Even though he's 40, he's still my baby and I want him to come home," said his mother Mary Tully.

A GoFundMe page was set up to raise money for a reward for information leading to his whereabouts. The reward reached $10,000.

Investigators have not yet revealed how Tully died. They continue to investigate.

A spokesperson for the Middle Bucks Institute of Technology released a statement on Tully's death.

"Mr. Tully will be remembered as an exemplary teacher who spent 12 years on staff with us, having a positive impact on the lives of our students and all with whom he worked," the spokesperson wrote. "In 2014 he was named Outstanding Career and Technical Educational Teacher by the Pennsylvania Association for Career and Technical Education. We knew him as an outstanding teacher and person."

Counselors will be available for students and staff at Middle Bucks Institute throughout the week.

5 Biggest Snowstorms to Hit Northeast

0
0

The Northeast is bracing for a “historic” snowstorm that is expected to pummel an area from Philadelphia all the way to northern New England with as much as two to three feet of snow by the time it's over late Tuesday night.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the New York and Boston areas starting Monday night.

"This could be the biggest snowstorm in the history of this city," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday. "My message for New Yorkers is prepare for something worse than we have ever seen before."

The forecast means, New York City could beat its one-day snowfall record — 26.9 inches, recorded in Central Park in February 2006.

"This is going to be a big one, historic," Weather Channel coordinating meteorologist Tom Moore told NBC News. "There could be paralyzing, crippling blizzard conditions. They're going to be talking about this one for a while."

The Northeast is no stranger to powerful snowstorms. Here’s a list of some of the biggest blizzards the region has ever seen.

1993: The Storm of the Century

The Storm of the Century did not only hit the Northeast, it surged up the entire East Coast from Alabama to Maine. The storm affected parts of 26 states, which is where roughly half of the entire U.S. population lives, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The blizzard began on March 12 and wrecked havoc for two days. For the first time, every East Coast airport had shut down at some point during or after the storm hit. Parts of upstate New York and Pennsylvania received over three feet of snow and wind gusts reached up to 89 mph on Long Island. Approximately 270 people died from direct and indirect results of the storm. The storm is still ranked as the number 1 most impactful snowstorm on the NOAA’s Northeast Snowfall Impact Scale (NESIS), which is used to categorize snowstorms.

The Storm of the Century had uncanny similarities to the Blizzard of 1888: both started on Mar. 12 and affected 26 states.

2006: New York City Blizzard

While this storm is 29th on the NESIS list, it did account for New York City’s most snowfall in history: 27 inches. The snowstorm, however, was not categorized as a blizzard— winds of at least 35 mph for three consecutive hours and visibility of less than a quarter mile constitute a blizzard, which this snowstorm did not have.

1977: The Buffalo Blizzard

The snow began early morning on January 28 and temperatures dropped approximately 26 degrees in four hours. At the blizzard's peak, gusts of winds were 75mph and wind chills reached 50 to 60 degrees below zero. Thousands were stranded in office buildings or stalled cars and roads became parking lots quickly. Although the storm did not dump record-breaking snow— only 12 inches— it did put Buffalo on the map as the blizzard capital of the United States.

1978: The Great Northeast Blizzard (Boston/Rhode Island)

New England shut down after this blizzard dumped over 30 inches of snow and wind speeds hit over 100 mph. After the storm, President Carter declared portions of Rhode Island and Massachusetts federal disaster areas and brought the National Guard to help with the clean up. The storm lasted 32 hours which accumulated over 3000 stranded cars on the highways and claimed the lives of almost 100 people. This may have been the most powerful storm in the region since the Great Snow of 1717 when four snowstorms struck the area between February 27 and March 7, covering the New England and New York colonies with more than four feet of snow.

The Blizzard of 1996

This nor’easter hit the Northeast Corridor on January 6, as the country was getting back on track from the federal government shutdown. This storm ranked second on the NESIS scale. Parts of Pennsylvania were completely shut down and many Pittsburgh Steelers fans from areas east of Pittsburgh were stranded in the city after the NFL playoff game on Sunday. Philadelphia recorded 30.7 inches of snow— its highest record to date.

Driver Arrested After Fiery Crash Into Home

0

One man is in custody after crashing his car into a home in Westbrook and causing a fire early Sunday morning.

The fire broke out after Rodrigo Sousa, 23 of Old Saybrook, crashed his car into the vacant home on Boston Post Road just before 4:30 a.m., according to the fire department.

A neighbor was awoken by the sound of the car hitting the home, followed by a loud bang and what sounded like an explosion.

"I heard a large boom. I thought it was my furnace, and I looked out the window and I could see the flames on the house next door," Damien Ranelli said.

When he came outside, he said it "looked like it had collided with a gas main" that "ruptured and exploded" at the front corner of the unoccupied house.

As a result, crews from four area fire departments spent more than four hours putting out the fire on the property, dousing the gas main with water to keep the house from completely going up in flames. The house itself took minutes to contain and the car also caught fire.

"The gas company, we had to wait for them to arrive on scene, then bring a backhoe in, which took an extended period of time, then to find the actual shutoff it was underneath the car, so we had to actually move the car," Westbrook Fire Chief Michael Jenkins said.

The home was structurally damaged on the side and there was also a lot of water damage, Jenkins said.

Ranelli said that he thought someone was still inside the car when he got to the scene, but "thankfully no one was."

The home was built a couple years ago as part of a project to replicate a historic home that used to sit on the property, according to the neighbor.

Sousa was arrested and charged with traveling too fast, driving under the influence of alcohol and criminal mischief. 

Officials did not say whether Sousa was injured.

Sousa is scheduled to appear in court on February 13.

There were no injuries reported.

 

 

 

 

Delta Plane Departed After Threats

Delta Airlines Flight 1061 from Los Angeles bound for Orlando was diverted to DFW International Airport Sunday afternoon, a Delta spokesman confirmed.  

The airline would not comment on the reason for the unscheduled landing except to say there was a, “security concern.”  Delta would not comment on the reason for the concern, but passengers aboard the flight tell NBC DFW the captain reported a possible threat from twitter.

“We started to see the police come and the fire trucks and emergency personnel,” said passenger Jeff Anderson.

“He [the plane's captain] did say at one point there was a threat on Twitter that mentioned this flight and there was a potential of a bomb.”

Anderson said the plane landed and taxied to an area away from the terminal.

“We did sit for quite a while,” he said. “They took us off the plane and said they were going to take all the luggage out, carry on and rescreen them.  They did have the bomb dogs looking around.” 

“Nobody seemed to be very nervous," said Anderson. "It was strange they took it serious enough to land the plane, but they didn’t seem to be in a great rush to get us off the plane.”

Anderson says they were later bused to Terminal E.  Once cleared the same plane departed DFW just after 7:30 p.m. bound for its original destination – Orlando.

Be Prepared: What to Do Before, During and After “Monster” Snowstorm

0
0

Nearly 30 million people living in the northern East Coast are bracing for what the National Weather Service says could be a “historic” winter storm. The storm is expected to bring blizzard conditions — including damaging wind gusts, heavy snow and coastal flooding — to the region for two days straight, NBC News reported.

Tom Moore, coordinating meteorologist for The Weather Channel, said the storm could intensify into “a monster.” And New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters Sunday that it’s important to “prepare for something worse than we have ever seen before.”

Whatever the storm ends up dishing out, it’s good to be prepared. Ready.gov has put together a preparedness plan for people in the path of severe winter storms. Here’s what you should know.

Before the Storm

Before the storm hits stock up on rock salt, snow shovels and other snow removal equipment to help remove snow and melt ice on walkways. Putting sand down can help improve traction.

If you have a fireplace or wood-burning stove, grab some extra wood or other heating fuel, as you could be stuck in your home for a few days without power. It's also a good idea to stock up on food, water and medications.

While you’re at it, dig out all the old blankets, quilts and sheets you have piled away in case you lose heat.

If you have time it’s a good idea to make a “Family Communications Plan.” This will ensure that the members of your family can get a hold of one another if you're separated when disaster strikes.

You can sign up in advance to receive notifications from local emergency services and the National Weather Service. FEMA, the American Red Cross and other organizations have free apps that can provide up-to-date information about shelters, first aid and recovery assistance.

During the Storm

When the storm hits, with wind and snow whirling outside, it’s best to stay indoors and keep warm.

If you have to go out, walk carefully through snow and on icy sidewalks. Avoid getting your clothes wet, as soggy clothing loses all of its insulating power.

Be very careful when shoveling snow. Overexertion can bring on a heart attack, which is a major cause of death in the winter months. To stay safe while shoveling take breaks, push snow instead of lifting it and lift lighter loads.

It’s also important to check frequently for signs of frostbite and hypothermia.

Frostbite is when the skin and body tissue just beneath it freezes. Symptoms of frostbite include loss of feeling and a whitish pale appearance in extremities, such as fingers, toes, earlobes, and the tip of the nose. Make sure to cover the exposed skin — but avoid rubbing it — and seek medical help immediately.

Hypothermia occurs when your body reaches a dangerously low temperature. Symptoms include an uncontrollable shivering, memory loss, incoherence, slurred speech, drowsiness, and exhaustion. If you think someone has hypothermia, take his temperature. If it’s below 95 degrees, get medical help immediately. While you’re waiting for help, get the victim to a warm location and remove any wet clothing he’s wearing. Warm the center of his body first by wrapping him in blankets and if he’s conscious give him warm, nonalcoholic beverages.

Drive only when you must and avoid traveling alone in case you become stranded. Inform others of your schedule — including your destination, route and when you expect to arrive — and travel only on main roads where others will see you if you get in an accident.

Back at home, conserve fuel by keeping your residence cooler than normal and temporarily closing off heat to some rooms.

If you’re using kerosene heaters make sure that you’ve got plenty of ventilation so that toxic fumes don’t build up and refuel kerosene heaters outside. It's also a good idea to have a working carbon monoxide detector.

If the pipes freeze, remove any insulation and wrap them in rags. Then open up all the faucets and pour hot water on the pipes, starting where they’re most exposed.

After the Storm

Once the storm has passed, grab a sled and enjoy the newfound winter wonderland before it melts away into muddy slush. Be sure to protect yourself from frostbite and hypothermia by wearing several layers of warm, loosefitting clothing.

If your home lost power or heat in the storm and it still hasn’t returned, or if you don’t have the supplies you need to stay warm in your home overnight, you may want to stay in a public shelter. You can figure out where the nearest one is by texting “SHELTER” plus your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA). Make sure to dress warmly on your way to the shelter and bring anything you might need that night.

After all is said and done, assess how your supplies and family plan worked. If you think it could have been improved in anyway, learn from your experience and plan ahead for the next big one.

Connecticut Municipalities Prepare for Blizzard

0

Towns and cities across Connecticut are preparing for a winter storm approaching that could drop as much as a foot of snow and cast blizzard-like conditions statewide Monday night into Wednesday morning.

New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart is calling a meeting Monday in the city's Emergency Operations Center to review the forecast and plan with public works and emergency services officials for the storm. The city will decide whether to activate the center that afternoon.

"In the meantime, I advise all our residents to make sure they and their families are prepared for whatever may come," Stewart said. "Tomorrow morning, we will be announcing whether and where any warming centers will be opened for emergency shelter during the event. Residents should assume there will be a parking ban in effect beginning late Monday night and running throughout Tuesday.”

Many streets in New Britain were left unplowed for days in the February blizzard of 2013, leaving residents stranded. Tim O'Brien was mayer at the time and the city ordered an independent review of its emergency procedures. The study called New Britain "a city potentially put at risk" and made several recommendation to improve emergency operations, including updating an outdated radio system. O'Brien said at the time that the city also identified many of the recommendations made in the study in its own internal review and that the radio system upgrade was in the works before the blizzard hit that year.

As for now, Stewart said that "government is most effective when everyone is communicating and sharing information."

“I want to make sure that we are prepared for every eventuality," Stewart said. "As with every storm, we hope for the best, but plan for the worst.”

6-Alarm Grass Fire in Calif.

0
0

A growing grass fire in a Pacifica canyon early Monday morning prompted evacuations and kept several people shut away in their homes as firefighters battled the blaze.

But by 7:30 a.m., firefighters had the five-acre grass fire - which quickly escalated to six alarms - contained, and residents who were allowed back into their homes, officials said.

The fire broke out about 3:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of Fasler Avenue, and created a dramatic scene for the small beachside city in between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay.

Clyde Preston of the North County Fire Authority said as of 6:30 a.m. about 90 people had been evacuated as a precautionary measure and being helped at the Pacifica Community Center. Residents were allowed back to their homes by 8:15 a.m.

The winds and steep terrain, he said, were making the vegetation fire challenging to fight. About 60 firefighters were working to quell the flames, which were pushing toward the ocean.

Mike Dulay was woken up by authorities about 5 a.m. and scrambled to get his wife, kids and animals out of the house to safety. He said he's lived in this area for 23 years and neve seen a wildfire burn on this particular ridge. He noted how thick the brush and poison oak is in this canyon, and sympathized with the firefighters who had a difficult fight ahead of them.

Donna Metcalf and Randall Cooper took photos of the fire, and said they were stuck in their house for at least a couple of hours as police had blocked off their street.

NBC Bay Area's chopper flew overhead, tracking the bright orange flames consuming foliage and licking the sky.

Supermarkets Run Low on Bread, Water Ahead of Blizzard

You'd better head to the supermarket fast if you want to get some last minute food shopping in before the blizzard, because the stores are packed and the shelves are emptying.

Between Saturday's snowstorm and the approaching blizzard prompted, the supermarkets have been packed. The American Red Cross and state officials are recommending residents prepare emergency kits and have at least three days-worth of non-perishable foods.

It was slim pickings in the water and bread aisles in the 24-hour Newington Price Chopper on the Berlin Turnpike on Monday morning. Jugs of water were gone and bottles were going fast.

"The things that they were running short on or about to run out of? I know celery, bread, meats, waters. It seems like it's going down pretty quick," Miguel Robles, of Wethersfield, said.

You may want to call stores ahead of time to see if they have the items you need in stock before the snow starts to fall.

Michelle Mahoney, of Newington, was at the store on Monday morning to avoid the crowds after facing crowds the day before.

"And people were like fighting for things. It was crazy," she said.

Are you rushing to the store today? What last-minute items are you picking up?
