Last Saturday, July 6, Asiana Airlines flight 214 from Incheon, South Korea to San Francisco, crashed during a landing attempt at San Francisco International Airport. The flight was carrying 307 people, and most were able to evacuate safely, 182 were injured, and two Chinese students aboard were killed. The National Transportation Safety Board is at work, trying to determine the exact cause, but what is known so far shows that the aircraft was low and underspeed during its approach, and the tail section appears to have clipped the seawall at the end of the runway, as the Boeing 777 struck the tarmac hard. This collection of images contains many photographs from passenger Eugene Anthony Rah, who was documenting the scene as he fled the aircraft. In this photo taken by Asiana Airlines flight 214 passenger Eugene Anthony Rah, passengers walk away from the Boeing 777 aircraft after a crash-landing at San Francisco International Airport, on July 6, 2013. Some can be seen carrying luggage and other carry-on items, spurring widespread criticism. Kim Yoon-ju, a flight attendant who was working aboard Asiana Airlines flight 214 when it crash-landed at San Francisco airport, cries as she is greeted by Park Sam-koo, Chairman of the Kumho-Asiana group, upon her arrival at Incheon Airport in Incheon, South Korea.

Last Thursday, a wildfire started in California's Angeles National Forest, north of Los Angeles, near a hydroelectric plant called as Powerhouse No. 1. The Powerhouse fire was pushed by erratic dry winds, destroying at least six homes near Lake Hughes, damaging many more, and leading to the evacuation of several thousand residents. Cooler weather has now allowed the firefighters to reach 60% containment of the fire, and some residents were allowed to return home. Yuccas catch fire as the Powerhouse fire makes a fast run toward Lake Hughes on June 1, 2013 south of Lake Hughes, California. The 32,000-acre wildfire destroyed numerous homes. More than 2,000 firefighters have been working in hot, dry conditions to establish containment lines around 60 percent of the fire as of June 4. Sparks fly from a glowing tree immediately after the main fire front swept over, south of Lake Hughes, California, and sparks fly from a hollowed tree burning within.

Last weekend, powerful thunderstorms drenched Tennessee, Kentucky and Mississippi, dumping over 13 inches of rain on the region in two days. Creeks, lakes and rivers swelled with the rainwater, overflowing their banks, washing away roads, and causing the deaths of at least 24 people so far. The Cumberland River, which winds through downtown Nashville, Tennessee, crested Monday at 51.9 feet, 12 feet above flood stage, spilling into the city and surrounding neighborhoods. As the waters are now receding, cleanup and recovery begins, as municipal workers begin to repair power supplies and water treatment plants, and residents return to their homes to recover what they can.
