Fuel transfer begins from tanker at Nome
ANCHORAGE — Crews have begun transferring 1.3 million gallons of fuel from a Russian fuel tanker to the iced-in western Alaska city of Nome.
Earlier, crews laid two hoses for the transfer along a stretch of Bering Sea ice.
The city of 3,500 didn’t get its last barge fuel delivery before winter because of a massive storm. Without the Renda’s delivery, Nome would run out of fuel long before the next barge delivery is possible.
Tucson base lockdown arose from mistake
PHOENIX — An official with an Arizona air force base in Tucson says the false report of a hostage-taking at the base in September was the result of a misunderstanding.
There were unconfirmed reports of gunfire at the base Sept. 16, which prompted officials to limit traffic onto the base and lock down schools. No weapons or gunman were found.
Emails among Air Force officials sent during the six-hour episode indicate fears of a tragedy similar to the 2009 rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, in which an Army psychiatrist is accused of killing 13 and wounding dozens.
