(Education Images/Universal Images Group via Getty Images) An Alaska fishing adventure became a nightmare for a family of eight when disaster struck one of the two boats they chartered over the Memorial Day weekend, leaving three people dead and two more missing despite a desperate search over hundreds of square miles of ocean.The tragedy tore the Tyau family apart: Two sisters and one of their husbands are dead, while the other’s partner and the boat captain remain missing off southeast Alaska four days after the boat was found partially submerged off an island.Authorities suspended a more than 20-hour search covering 825 square miles on Monday and have no plans to resume it.The women's parents, older brother and sister-in-law were on the other charter boat as part of a three-day trip to a destination fishery known for king salmon and groundfish.The sisters and their sister-in-law didn’t like fishing but joined the vacation to spend more time with a family that was usually split between Hawaii and Los Angeles."It was just supposed to be a simple family get-together for eight of us, since we haven’t been together in the same spot for so long," Michael Tyau, the older brother, told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Nova Scotia - Rainy forecast could offer some relief for crews battling N.S. wildfires - - Canada
Rainy forecast could offer some relief for crews battling N.S. wildfires
wildfires in Nova Scotia — including the largest wildfire ever recorded in provincial history — could get some welcome relief Friday with rain in the forecast.Environment Canada forecasts a 60 per cent chance of showers Friday, with rain beginning in the evening. Periods of rain are also expected for the next few days.Officials have said the hot, dry weather seen so far this wildfire season is making it easier for the fire to spread and harder for crews to fight.David Steeves, a technician of forest resources with the Department of Natural Resources and Renewables, said while a smattering of rain seen earlier Friday morning was “really welcomed,” it “wasn’t enough to be really significant.”He said the amount that fell Friday morning would only have a small effect on the “fine fuels” — such as leaves, twigs, and other things littering the forest floor.“The precipitation that we received this morning would buy us a few hours, but we will take that advantage right now,” Steeves said, noting that the moisture is quickly evaporating.“We are hopeful that we are going to receive additional, precipitation which will only help our cause,” he said.“We are going to continue to monitor the weather very, very closely, and just keep our fingers crossed for any type of precipitation that’s hopefully going to come our way before too much longer.”Dave Meldrum, deputy chief with Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency, said he’s “never been so happy to see rain as I was this morning.”“I’m sure many people across the region feel the same way,” he said.
