Storms causing travel headaches on both coasts ahead of Christmas

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Storms on both coasts are bringing trouble to holiday travelers to start out the week. One storm is causing flooding and gusty winds for the Southeast while the other has brought heavy rain to Southern California and snow in the mountains. The storm in the Southeast is bringing heavy rain from southern Florida all the way to the Carolinas on Monday morning. Flooding has been reported in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where the airport briefly had to close down, and parts of the region got more than 8 inches of rain in the six hours after midnight.The storm will slowly move through the Carolinas by Monday evening with drier conditions expected for Florida. Up to 5 inches of rain is possible in South Carolina through the next 24 hours. West Coast stormThe western storm is bringing very heavy rain to Southern California on Monday morning, including Los Angeles and San Diego, with some flooding possible. In the mountains of Southern California some areas could see up to a foot of snow. In the L.A. area and San Diego, as much as 1 to 3 inches of rain is possible.Heavy rain will also spread into Arizona later on Monday and into the nighttime hours, with some areas seeing up to 1 inch of rainfall. Snow will spread into the southern Rockies from Utah to Colorado, where some areas could see more than a foot in the next 36 hours.Christmas thawOutside of the two travel trouble spots in the Southwest and Southeast, it will be a very mild, spring-like Christmas for most of the eastern U.S. Temperatures will reach the 50s close to Chicago and the 40s into the Great Lakes and the Northeast.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

New Mexico’s San Juan coal plant headed for closure with signing of clean energy law

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Santa Fe New Mexican:Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed sweeping energy legislation on Friday that calls for New Mexico’s major electric utilities to get 100 percent of their power from carbon emission-free sources by 2045.One of the most ambitious and contentious laws passed during the 60-day legislative session that ended a week ago, Senate Bill 489 also sets up a system for financing the Public Service Company of New Mexico’s closure of a coal power plant in the Four Corners and creates job training programs for the renewable energy industry while extending assistance to laid off coal workers.The bill’s critics have argued it will still leave PNM customers paying for the company’s investments in the coal industry and do nothing to save the jobs of workers in the sector. But an unlikely coalition of backers, which includes PNM as well as environmental groups and labor unions, views the legislation as a stride in transitioning to clean energy while boosting the expansion of an industry they say has room to grow under the state’s sunny skies and on its windy mesas.Current law requires that 20 percent of New Mexico’s electricity come from renewable sources by 2020. SB 489 raises that threshold to 50 percent by 2030 for investor-owned utilities like PNM and rural electric cooperatives.As part of this goal, the law encourages PNM to shut down a coal power plant in the Four Corners, the San Juan Generating Station, by creating a system to sell bonds that would make up for the money the company would lose by closing the facility. The bonds would be paid off by PNM’s customers through electric bills.An analysis by legislative aides said it would cost about $27 million a year. Legislative analysts reported this would be less costly for customers than if PNM continued to operate the facility or if it sought other financing to end its operations. Both options have an estimated cost of $45 million a year, aides said.More: Lujan Grisham signs landmark clean energy bill New Mexico’s San Juan coal plant headed for closure with signing of clean energy lawlast_img read more
