first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Long Island may soon see its first frost as temperatures are locally forecast to dip below freezing overnight at least one night this week, threatening crops and possibly ending the growing season.A freeze watch is in effect 10 p.m. Tuesday to 10 a.m. Wednesday, when temps are expected to drop to a low of 26 overnight across Nassau and Suffolk counties, as well as parts of New York City and New Jersey, according to the Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.A freeze watch means below freezing temperatures are possible. An NWS forecaster said a recent freeze warning on LI did cause some frost, but it was not widespread and didn’t last long.The watch comes as Veterans Day hit the 50s with a 50-percent chance of light rain overnight into Tuesday morning, when temps may reach a high of 45 before potentially dropping down below the freezing mark overnight.The forecast calls for sunny skies for the rest of the week, hitting a high of 42 Wednesday but dropping down to a low of 32 at night.Temps will remain in the 50s during the day and hover around the high 30s to mid 40s after sundown through the weekend.If the forecast proves accurate, the first frost will be right on schedule, where it usually comes after Nov. 10 on western LI and as early as mid to late October on parts of Suffolk’s South Shore and East End.last_img read more

GMS: Pakistani Scrapyards Ready to Reopen to Tankers

first_imgPakistan’s shipbreaking yards seem to have reached an end of a near 18-month saga as they are ready to reopen their doors to tankers, according to a report from GMS, a cash buyer of ships for recycling.The country’s provincial government signed off and consented to the lifting of restrictions on import of tankers imposed in February 2017, in the aftermath of two major incidents in Gadani shipbreaking yards.GMS said that the final two signatures required for the Pakistani market to reopen for tankers were delivered last week. Other than the issuance of No Objection Certificates (NOC), expected early this week, “nearly everything is in place for wet units to start arriving to Gadani yards.”Tankers will have to be totally gas free for hot works clean, with all cargo residues, slops and sludges completely cleaned from all cargo and slop tanks, similar to the Indian and Bangladeshi guidelines. Hot works certificates issued at the last port of call, rather than the more stringent local explosives inspector demands in Alang and Chittagong, may allegedly be locally accepted.“What seems clear is that Pakistani levels will not immediately jump up to match cash buyer expectations and a fair degree of lowballing is likely to ensue as end buyers seek to acquire a bargain or two,” GMS said.“It may be a case of waiting to see who blinks first, as most cash buyers will certainly not offload tonnage at some of the below market rates emanating from Pakistan and will likely hold out, bearing in mind the recent slowdown of fresh market offerings.”Demolition of tankers and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carriers was banned at Pakistan’s Gadani shipbreaking yards following the incidents, caused by the absence of safety measures. These included an explosion on November 1, 2016, which killed at least 28 workers, and a fire on January 9, 2017, which took the lives of another 5 workers.last_img read more
