baranozdemir/iStock(NEW YORK) — Residents near New York City are bracing for the impact of a possible tornado that could bring strong winds and possible flash floods to the area.The National Weather service issued tornado warnings for several counties surrounding Manhattan on Tuesday evening, urging residents in the path of the “dangerous storm” to stay inside.The service said the storms could produce hail the size of quarters.“Flying debris will be dangerous to those caught without shelter. Mobile homes will be damaged or destroyed. Damage to roofs, windows, and vehicles will occur. Tree damage is likely,” NWS said in a statement. “This Tornado Warning replaces the Severe Thunderstorm Warning issued for the same area.”The warning covers areas surrounding Staten Island and parts of northeastern New Jersey, including Hudson County, Union County and southern Essex County.Monday marked the 11th consecutive day where multiple tornadoes were reported throughout the country, according to the NWS.NWS issued a “tornado emergency” alert for parts of eastern Kansas on Tuesday night as dangerous weather touched down in the area.Police in Lawrence, Kansas, said a massive tornado left large trees, power lines and debris along the streets, making some major roads impassable.“Most structural damage appears to have occurred near Lawrence as the tornado passed just outside the city limit,” the Lawrence Police Department said in a tweet. “Please do not go sight seeing tornado damage. This only hampers the efforts of emergency workers.”Tornadoes devastated parts of Ohio on Monday night, leveling homes and leaving thousands without water and power.“I don’t know that any community is fully prepared for this type of devastation,” Dayton assistant fire chief Nicholas Hosford said Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “We have homes flattened, entire apartment complexes destroyed, businesses throughout our community where walls have collapsed,” Hosford said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

It is widely held that benthic foraminifera exhibit species-specific calcification depth preferences,with their tests recording sediment pore water chemistry at that depth (i.e. stable isotope and trace metalcompositions). This assumed depth-habitat-specific pore water chemistry relationship has been used to reconstructvarious palaeoenvironmental parameters, such as bottom water oxygenation. However, many deepwaterforaminiferal studies show wide intra-species variation in sediment living depth but relatively narrowintra-species variation in stable isotope composition. To investigate this depth-habitat–stable-isotope relationshipon the shelf, we analysed depth distribution and stable isotopes of “living” (Rose Bengal stained) benthicforaminifera from two box cores collected on the South Georgia shelf (ranging from 250 to 300m water depth).We provide a comprehensive taxonomic analysis of the benthic fauna, comprising 79 taxonomic groupings.The fauna shows close affinities with shelf assemblages from around Antarctica. We find “live” specimens of anumber of calcareous species from a range of depths in the sediment column. Stable isotope ratios (�13C and�18O) were measured on stained specimens of three species, Astrononion echolsi, Cassidulinoides porrectus,and Buccella sp. 1, at 1 cm depth intervals within the downcore sediment sequences. In agreement with studiesin deep-water settings, we find no significant intra-species variability in either �13Cforam or �18Oforam with sedimentliving depth on the South Georgia shelf. Our findings add to the growing evidence that infaunal benthicforaminiferal species calcify at a fixed depth. Given the wide range of depths at which we find “living”, “infaunal”species, we speculate that they may actually calcify predominantly at the sediment–seawater interface,where carbonate ion concentration and organic carbon availability is at a maximum.
