US Navy sorties Hawaii-based ships ahead of Hurricane Lane

first_img View post tag: Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickham US Navy ships and submarines based in Hawaii are getting underway from Pearl Harbor as Hurricane Lane travels toward the Hawaiian Islands.This was announced by Rear Adm. Brian Fort, commander, Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific, who said that ships and submarines not currently undergoing maintenance availabilities have begun to sortie and will be positioned to help respond after the storm, if needed.“Based on the current track of the storm, we made the decision to begin to sortie the Pearl Harbor-based ships,” Fort said. “This allows the ships enough time to transit safely out of the path of the storm.”Units will remain at sea until the threat from the storm subsides and Hawaii-based Navy aircraft will be secured in hangars or flown to other airfields to avoid the effects of the hurricane.The Navy orders a sortie during potentially extreme weather conditions to reduce the risk of significant damage to ships and piers during high winds and seas. Some ships will not get underway, due to various maintenance availabilities, and are taking extra precautions to avoid potential damage. Commanding officers have a number of options when staying in port, depending on the severity of the weather. Some of these options include adding additional mooring and storm lines, dropping the anchor, and disconnecting shore power cables. View post tag: US Navy Photo: Illustration.

Watch: Graeme Souness questions if Arsenal are a ‘proper team’ after meek 2-2 draw…

first_imgAdvertisement 6gknNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs8yhjWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Eymjqs( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) fWould you ever consider trying this?😱9w6soCan your students do this? 🌚t5Roller skating! Powered by Firework Graeme Souness the former Liverpool manager and football pundit is widely known for his sharp tongue. Previously the Scottish had scathed Paul Pogba for his antics and now he has launched an attack on the Gunners following their 2-2 draw at Watford. Arsenal ended the first half with a 2-0 lead against the Hornets at home. But Tom Cleverley and Roberto Pereyra ended the Gunners 3 points dream at the death, as shambolic defence by David Luiz and co helped Quique Sanchez Flores’ side earn a point at home.Advertisement Pierre Emerick Aubameyang bagged a brace in the first half but it was Quique Sanchez Flores’ side who should’ve claimed all three points, as they remarkably managed to fire 31 shots against a broken Arsenal defence; only to be let down by poor finishing. La Masia graduate Gerard Deulofeu dominated the left flank, but failed to test Bernd Leno, while Abdoulaye Doucoure wasted a glorious chance to score the winner in the the dying minutes.Advertisement Arsenal has been accused of collapsing as soon as their opponent start firing in their half and Souness, the Sky Sports pundit, criticised the Gunners while discussed their collapse at Vicarage Road.“They capitulated; proper teams don’t play like that.” he said.“They brought on some kids. That was a game when it was 2-1 and it was time to dig in. When the kids came on it was all over the place, it was like a game of basketball. Persisting with playing out from the back was going to cost them a goal, and they were lucky it was only one.” Souness further added.Arsenal will face Aston Villa at home next Sunday after their Europa League opener against Eintracht Frankfurt this Thursday.  Advertisementlast_img read more
