first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A nor’easter meandering passed the region is forecast to bring heavy rainfall, coastal flooding, and strong wind gusts that may cause power outages on Long Island through Friday, experts say.The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a wind advisory due to gusts up to 50 mph, coastal flood warning due to high tides causing flooding in low-lying areas, and hazardous weather outlook for much of Nassau and Suffolk counties as the storm impacts the area.“The rain is expected to taper off later tonight and into Friday as the storm will begin to gradually move to the east,” Upton-based NWS meteorologists said in a statement. “The winds will also begin to decrease into Friday.”Overall, an additional inch to an inch and a half is expected east of the New York City metro, the agency said.The coastal flood warning is in effect from 5 p.m. Thursday through midnight Friday and a coastal flood watch continues through Friday morning.“This evening, expect widespread flooding of vulnerable areas near the waterfront and shoreline, with two to three feet of inundation above ground level,” NWS said in its flood statement. “This will result in numerous road closures and cause widespread flooding of low-lying property including parking lots, parks, lawns and homes/businesses with basements near the waterfront. Vehicles parked in vulnerable areas near the waterfront will likely become flooded. Flooding will also extend inland from the waterfront along tidal rivers and bays.”In addition, the combination of elevated water levels and large breaking waves will cause beach flooding and erosion on the oceanfront, the agency said.As for the wind advisory in effect through 6 p.m. Thursday, north winds will be about 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph.“Strong winds may blow down limbs, trees, and power lines,” NWS said. “Scattered power outages are expected.”Once the storm pushes further away into the weekend, there will be clouds lingering along with some breaks of sun. Temperatures after averaging below normal through Friday, with then climb closer to normal with mainly dry conditions returning to the region to begin the weekend.Saturday and Sunday is forecast to be partly sunny with temps in the 60s.last_img read more

Hitachi, Toshiba, Miraca to set up factory for coronavirus antigen tests

first_imgIn a rare partnership, Hitachi will provide engineering know-how, while Toshiba will offer facilities. Fujirebio currently produces test kits at a plant in southern Japan.The coronavirus has infected more than 6.6 million people and killed about 391,000 around the world. Japan has had about 17,000 infections and 910 known deaths to date. Larger output of antigen tests, designed for rapid detection of the virus, will help Japan do more surveillance of the virus. Japan is far behind many industrialized nations in testing for the virus, which critics say obscures the true scale of infection.”We believe we can contribute in providing a system that enables prompt testing should second and third waves come,” a Miraca spokeswoman said.Antigen tests scan for proteins found on or inside a virus, and typically test a sample taken from the nasal cavity using swabs. The tests can detect the virus quickly but produce false negatives at a higher rate than the currently dominant polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.It takes about 10 to 30 minutes to get a result with Fujirebio’s palm-sized antigen test kit, Miraca said, compared with four to six hours for a PCR test. Miraca does not disclose the false negative rate for the kits. Japanese industrial conglomerates Hitachi Ltd and Toshiba Corp will join with Miraca Holdings to increase production of antigen-based coronavirus tests, aiding in the country’s effort to screen more people for the new virus.The alliance will double production of Miraca subsidiary Fujirebio’s testing kits, which received government approval in May, to 400,000 a week, the three companies said in a joint statement on Friday.A new plant to make the kits will be established in Hokkaido prefecture, Japan’s northern island, and will start operations by December.center_img Topics :last_img read more
