Blinding sun may have caused massive 30-car crash on Maine interstate

first_imgFILE photo – tillsonburg/iStock(CARMEL, Maine) — Blinding sun may have caused a massive crash involving about 30 cars on a Maine interstate Tuesday morning, state authorities said.The chain reaction accident was on Interstate 95 in Carmel.Some people were injured, including one person who was hurt seriously and transported to a hospital via helicopter, said Stephen McCausland, a spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety. This closure is expected to last much of the day. Northbound traffic should now use Exit 157 in Newport to avoid delays.— MaineDOT (@MaineDOT1) January 7, 2020Initial reports say blinding sun may have caused the first crash at about 7:45 a.m., before other cars collided in a chain reaction, said McCausland.It’s also possible that the interstate was coated in a thin layer of ice. The temperature was near zero and a light snow shower moved through the area shortly before the crash.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

Puerto Rico’s emergency services director fired after warehouse discovered with supplies from Hurricane Maria

first_imgMark Wilson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) —  Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vazquez dismissed the island’s director of emergency management after a warehouse was discovered with supplies dating back to Hurricane Maria.Video published Saturday showed a warehouse in the southwestern city of Ponce filled with supplies, including thousands of cases of water, believed to have been from when the hurricane struck the island in 2017.Hurricane Maria left 2,975 people dead and caused major problems in Puerto Rico for months, including power outages and shortages of food, water and medicine.“There are thousands of people who have made sacrifices to bring help to the south, and it is unforgivable that resources have been kept in a warehouse,” Vazquez said in a statement.The governor gave officials 48 hours to investigate why the supplies never were delivered to those who needed them.Vazquez nominated the head of the Puerto Rican National Guard, Brig. Gen. Victor S. Perez, to lead the Office of Emergency Management after Carlos Acevedo’s dismissal. Acevedo, before his firing, said in a statement: “It is important to emphasize that no citizen has been denied any of the items found at this place.”The warehouse and its contents were discovered when the building was inspected after an earthquake hit Puerto Rico last week, Acevedo said.Water, food, diapers, baby formula, cots and tarps had been stored there, according to his statement.Acevedo said at one point there had been 600 pallets of water, which were distributed to the public when Hurricane Dorian and Hurricane Karen threatened Puerto Rico, but there were about 80 left. The investigation will examine inventory at that warehouse and potentially any others.The person who took the video of inside the warehouse “violated the security perimeter,” he added.Ponce Mayor Mayita Meléndez wrote on Twitter that the city and its government “had NO knowledge of the findings made in this warehouse near the Guancha de Ponce.” Meléndez said the warehouses are not managed by the city.“Our people suffered greatly bc [sic] of how Hurricane María was managed,” she wrote. “We cannot allow history to repeat itself.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Greggs’ turnover breaks £1bn barrier for first time

first_imgFull-year sales at Greggs have broken the £1bn barrier for the first time in 2018, with the business seeing a 7.2% hike in turnover.The growth follows the business increasing its estate by 99 stores – opening 149 (including 62 franchises) and closing 50 – giving it 1,953 shops at the end of 2018.Announcing its results for the year ending 29 December, the company reported an increase in pre-tax profits from £71.9m in 2017 to £82.6m, with operating profits excluding property profits and exceptional items up 9.1% to £89.1m.The business said the first half of 2018 had been significantly impacted by the weather, with severe wintry conditions in early March hitting sales badly, and the June and July heatwave reducing demand for bakery items. It added that, once the weather returned to normal, sales picked up quickly.“In contrast to the general retail environment, the food-on-the-go sector overall continues to grow, though it remains highly competitive,” said CEO Roger Whiteside.“We have worked hard over the last five years to redevelop our shop estate in order to be less dependent on shopping locations, and to refocus our product range on growth categories and extended day-parts, which have been key to our success.”Greggs now has 262 franchised shops, mainly in travel locations, and the business extended its company-managed estate into major transport hubs including Birmingham New Street station, Glasgow Buchanan bus terminal and East Midlands airport. In London, it opened in Westminster underground, Cannon Street and London Bridge stations, which it said had quickly become one of its busiest shops.The company plans to add at least 100 new shops in 2019, including around 50 franchises.%%Quote_52%% Greggs also continued a major shake-up of its manufacturing and distribution operations in 2018 that included consolidation of its doughnut manufacturing at Newcastle upon Tyne, transfer of its pizza production to Manchester, closure of the bakery and distribution operations in Norwich, and setting up a national facility for the production of fresh cream products in Leeds.“The board recognises that 2018 was a year of significant change for many of Greggs’ employees,” said Greggs chairman Ian Durant. “We oversaw and engaged regularly with the exhaustive planning that went into the reorganisation of our manufacturing operations, designed to improve competitiveness and support further growth in the number of shops.“We were pleased that the changes are being made without a need for compulsory redundancies.”The company has now started work on a new southern distribution centre at Amesbury in Wiltshire, which is due to be completed by the end of 2019.From 2020, work will start on converting its Birmingham site to a dedicated distribution centre, and the company plans to build an automated frozen distribution facility at its Balliol distribution centre to reduce reliance on third-party providers.Looking to the future, Whiteside highlighted “significant uncertainties” in the months ahead, including the potential impact that a disorderly exit from the EU might have on supply chains, tariffs, exchange rates and consumer demand.“However, Greggs has started 2019 in great form, with company-managed shop like-for-like sales in the seven weeks to 16 February 2019 up 9.6%, and total sales up 14.1%.“We have enjoyed strong sales growth, particularly in January, helped in part by the publicity surrounding the launch of our vegan-friendly sausage roll,” he added. “We hope to continue benefiting from this strong momentum during the first half of 2019 before facing stronger comparatives later in the year.”last_img read more
