60 Rescued After Heavy Rains Trigger Floods in Missouri

Heavy rains in Missouri triggered flash floods and forced 60 residents to flee from their homes overnight, emergency management officials said. Two mobile home parks near Festus, south of St. Louis, were evacuated with the help of firefighters, Warren Robinson, director of emergency management in Jefferson County, told NBC News. "Our Doppler software showed some areas had five inches of rain overnight and that had an impact on many of our smaller streams," he said. The rain is not expected to reach Mississippi, he added. Buses carried evacuees to a flood shelter at Telegraph Intermediate School in Festus, according to reporter John Henry with NBC station KSDK. Read »

TransAsia Crash Pilot Turned Off Wrong Engine: Officials

The captain of a TransAsia Airways plane mistakenly switched off its only working engine seconds before it crashed in February, according to Taiwan's Aviation Safety Council, Reuters reported. The ASC's latest report also showed that Captain Liao Jian-zong, who was at the controls, had failed simulator training in May 2014, partially because he had insufficient knowledge of how to deal with an engine flame-out on take-off. "Wow, pulled back the wrong side throttle," Liao, 41, was heard to say on voice recordings seconds before the crash that killed 43 people. TransAsia had no immediate comment about the latest findings. A draft of the final report will be issued in November with the final report to be completed in April 2016, the council said. The cause of the crash and recommendations for the future will be included in the final report. Read »
