    Nous, Français, partageons le choc et la peine du peuple autrichien frappé ce soir par un attentat au cœur de sa capitale, Vienne. Après la France, c’est un pays ami qui est attaqué. C’est notre Europe. Nos ennemis doivent savoir à qui ils ont affaire. Nous ne céderons rien.

    Translated from French by Google

    We French share the shock and grief of the Austrian people struck this evening by an attack in the heart of their capital, Vienna. After France, a friendly country is attacked. This is our Europe. Our enemies must know who they are dealing with. We will not give up.

    This really strengthened in a hurry

    (Reuters) - Eta could strengthen into a Category 5 hurricane before it makes landfall along the coast of Nicaragua on Tuesday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

    The system is located about 40 miles (65 km) east of Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, packing maximum sustained winds of 150 miles per hour (240 km/h), the NHC added.

    From what I see, this is based on something a pundit said on a TV show when he was openly speculating

    Kremlin Denies Reports Putin is Ill, Planning to Resign
    The denial amounted to a rare statement about the 68-year-old autocrat’s physical health following a report from a British tabloid.

    By Paul D. Shinkman, Senior Writer, National Security 

    THE KREMLIN ON FRIDAY insisted that Russian President Vladimir Putin is in good health and has no plans to resign – a rare on-record comment about the guarded leader's private life forced by a speculative report in a British tabloid suggesting he "has possible symptoms of Parkinson's disease."

    "No," spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday morning when asked whether Putin has plans to resign. "He is in excellent health."

    A report from The Sun on Thursday suggested the 68-year-old autocrat plans to step down based on a claim that Putin's reported mistress implored him to resign amid health issues. The report also cited an analysis of video footage that The Sun claimed portrays Putin involuntarily trembling and showing signs of pain, along with reports of prior medical concerns.

    "This is pure nonsense. The president is well," Peskov said.

    It was unclear why the Kremlin felt obligated to address the report and reference it through its heavily controlled state media service, though Putin has been notoriously image-conscious throughout his tenure and has long sought to project displays of his vitality.

    The future of Putin's tenure has indeed wrought international scrutiny in recent months. Having served for longer than any leader in Moscow since Josef Stalin, Putin consolidated power in early January through a series of forced reforms that essentially allows him to remain in power indefinitely.

    American and European officials and analysts believe the move was at least in part due to Putin's inability to find a successor who would protect him from legal persecution if and when he follows the Russian tradition of elder statesmen leaving public life to retire into relative obscurity.

    Putin has already built a billion-dollar palace complex for himself, ironically called "Dacha Putin" or "Putin's country cottage" as a dry reference to the sorts of Black Sea-adjacent retirements his predecessors enjoyed.

    This seems to be about as believable as Kim dying anytime soon. Not impossible, but more wishfull thinking than anything else.

    I read this yesterday. Seems it comes from UK sources. The article went into "hints" of the disease.

    Regardless, if it's true, we'll know soon enought. He would resign next year but be given a life-term position in the senate for political immunity.

    (As one can see, just the roof was on fire. Their offices are on the bottom floor (one of many not the HQ). The rest of the building is residential)

    This is strengthening so quickly that the Twitter sidebar still has it as a Cat 4. Keep in mind, this is almost the exact same area that got hit with a Cat 4 two weeks ago.
