(Bloomberg) -- Hurricane Zeta is walloping New Orleans with the most powerful winds since Katrina devastated the city in 2005, blacking out tens of thousands of homes and businesses, knocking out traffic lights and triggering voluntary evacuations.Zeta made landfall near Cocodrie, Louisiana, with winds of 110 miles (177 kilometers) per hour, before weakening slightly to 100 mph, according to an advisory. The category 2 storm is the fifth hurricane or tropical storm to hit the state this year, the National Hurricane Center said. Never before have so many major storms smashed into Louisiana or the contiguous U.S. in a single season, according to Phil Klotzbach, a hurricane researcher with Colorado State University.While Zeta isn’t as powerful as Katrina, it is running directly over the Crescent City, bringing the harshest winds in 15 years. By moving at a brisk 25 miles an hour, it could pass over quickly enough to spare New Orleans catastrophic flooding even as it claimed its first victim by electrocution on Wednesday. Damages may still total as much as $5 billion.“This is going to be one of the worst hurricanes to hit New Orleans proper since Katrina,” said Jim Rouiller, chief meteorologist at Energy Weather Group LLC.Zeta is the latest in a grim parade of natural disasters to hit the U.S. in recent months as climate change makes weather increasingly extreme. In California, heat waves, drought and violent winds have combined to fuel a rash of wildfires that have burned a record 4.1 acres this year. And along the East and Gulf coasts, a record 11 named storms have hit the U.S.In all, 27 storms have formed across the Atlantic in 2020. So many systems have formed this season that the National Hurricane Center has used up all its official titles and has resorted to the Greek alphabet to designate new ones.The eye of the storm was moving into New Orleans by about 7 p.m. New York time, the city’s emergency response agency said on Twitter. More than 280,000 homes and businesses across Louisiana lost power within hours. The electrical failures knocked out traffic lights, and government officials warned residents to stay off the roads.Zeta becomes only one of six storms to hit the U.S. this late in October and the first hurricane to do so since 1985, said Jeff Masters, a meteorologist with Yale Climate Connection. While Sandy was a powerful storm when it came ashore in New Jersey in 2012, it had lost its hurricane characteristics when it struck land.Rapid IntensificationZeta grew in strength as it moved across the Gulf, and all told this year six storms have rapidly intensified -- short of a record, but indicative of climate change.“There have been a lot of rapidly intensifying storms and that is something we expect to see in a warming climate,” Masters said.Zeta may cause as much as $5 billion in damages and losses, said Chuck Watson, a damage modeler at Enki Research, who raised his estimate from an initial $1 billion as the forecast worsened. The storm’s stronger winds bring more dynamic pressure on everything it hits, and there are simply more targets in the way the closer to New Orleans it gets.While the intensity and number of storms has surpassed the 12 that usually form in an average season, there is no indication things will stop as October ends and November begins.A potential storm could form in the Caribbean Sea within the next week, which would be called Eta. This would be the 28th storm and tie a record with 2005 for the most in a single year.Not Done YetThere might even be more. A global weather pattern called the Madden Julian Oscillation that’s about to exert its influence on the Atlantic may spark a spate of storms. The Atlantic is still warm enough to spin up hurricanes and there are still plenty of tropical waves, the building blocks of hurricanes, emanating from Africa, Masters said.In addition, autumn cold fronts moving off North America often swirl into tropical storms.“I suspect we will see one or two of those this year,” Masters said. “Thirty storms are possible.”(Updates with latest wind speed and casualty in 2nd, 3rd paragraphs.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

In a brief order, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said it would not rehear arguments over whether the San Diego, California-based company had engaged in anticompetitive patent-licensing practices to keep a monopoly on the market for modem chips that connect smart phones to wireless data networks. On Aug. 11, a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit said the FTC failed to establish that Qualcomm's practices had an anticompetitive effect on the cellular chip market. The FTC had asked the entire court to rehear arguments and reconsider the panel decision.

(Bloomberg) -- Rubber futures in Tokyo headed for their biggest monthly surge in more than four decades on expectations that economic improvement in top consumer China will boost demand, while supplies may be disrupted due to adverse weather conditions.China’s recovery from the coronavirus slump continued in the third quarter and showed signs of broadening in September, keeping the economy on track to be the world’s only major growth engine and validating Beijing’s aggressive approach in controlling the pandemic.Chinese President Xi Jinping opened a meeting in Beijing this week to map out the next phase of economic development. Communist Party officials will also set goals for the next 15 years as Xi seeks to deliver on his vow for national rejuvenation by gaining the global lead in technology and other strategic industries.“The gain in rubber futures is mostly to do with recovery hopes in China,” said Gnanasekar Thiagarajan, head of trading and hedging strategies at Kaleesuwari Intercontinental. It’s expected that maintaining a steady economic growth rate will be the priority for the Chinese leadership, he said.Sentiment has also become bullish on expectations that a fresh wave of coronavirus infections in several countries could result in a strong demand for rubber gloves, Thiagarajan said.Monthly SurgeRubber futures in Tokyo have jumped 44% so far this month and are set for their biggest monthly advance since 1975. Prices in Singapore are poised for their best monthly increase since 2003, while Shanghai rubber is on track for the biggest monthly gain since 2006.Demand for the commodity, mainly used to make tires, is likely to increase as automobile companies step up production. Vehicle sales in China climbed 13% in September from a year earlier.Nissan Motor Co. plans to boost its output capacity in China by about 30% in 2021, Yomiuri newspaper reported. China is emerging as a bright spot for the Japanese automaker as the pandemic weighs on demand in the U.S. and Europe.On the supply side, rubber output in China, the top consumer of the commodity, may slump 30% in 2020 from a year earlier as typhoons in Hainan and drought in Yunnan hurt trees, according to Du Hui, an analyst with Brilliant Futures.Top rubber producers expect natural rubber output to fall for rest of 2020 and decline further into early 2021, according a statement by the International Tripartite Rubber Council last month.(Updates price size and scopes in sixth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
After both sides projected cooperation for so long, this is the biggest sign of labor strife yet.
There is a high risk the resurgence in coronavirus cases halts the global economic recovery by year-end, according to Reuters polls of around 500 economists, a majority of whom expected the rebound next year to be weaker than previously thought. The Oct. 6-27 Reuters polls of economists across Asia, Europe and the Americas covering 46 economies showed scant sign of activity recovering to pre-COVID-19 levels anytime soon. Nearly three-quarters of 150 analysts who responded to an additional question said the resurgence in coronavirus cases posed a high risk of halting the current global economic recovery as early as this year.

Court decision allows extension of absentee ballot deadlines in swing states of Pennsylvania and North CarolinaThe US supreme court has rejected a last-minute plea from Pennsylvania Republicans to overturn a three-day extension of the absentee ballot deadline, a hugely consequential ruling in one of the most closely watched swing states in the presidential election.The state usually requires ballots to arrive by 8pm on election night in order to count. But last month, the Pennsylvania supreme court extended that deadline by three days for ballots postmarked by election day, a move likely to allow thousands of late-arriving ballots to count.Pennsylvania Republicans asked the US supreme court to halt that ruling pending appeal, but it declined to do so last week, deadlocking 4-4 and offering no explanation for its decision. The Pennsylvania Republican party then asked the court to expedite the case, which the court again declined to do on Wednesday.Wednesday’s decision is the latest in a series on important rulings on absentee ballots in key swing states. Shortly after Pennsylvania, the supreme court also declined to block an agreement giving North Carolina voters more time to return their absentee ballots.Despite Wednesday’s ruling on Pennsylvania, three of the court’s conservative justices – Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Clarence Thomas – signaled the court might still consider the case after the election. The Pennsylvania supreme court’s ruling “likely violates the federal constitution”, Alito wrote for the three, and its decision “could lead to serious post-election problems”.Prior to the court’s decision, Pennsylvania’s top election official instructed counties to segregate ballots that arrived after 8pm on election day from ones that arrived before. The move appeared to be an attempt to ensure any future court ruling could target just the late-arriving ballots without affecting those that made the deadline.“This was a careful decision designed to ensure all eligible Pennsylvania votes will be counted and to stave off anticipated legal challenges from Donald Trump and his enablers,” the state attorney general, Josh Shapiro, told the court, according to the Wall Street Journal.North Carolina state law allows voters to return ballots up to three days after elections, as long as they are postmarked by election day. But earlier, the North Carolina state board of elections, the top elections body in the state, agreed to extend that deadline until 12 November, in an effort to settle a lawsuit. North Carolina Republicans, who control the state legislature, challenged that extension and asked the supreme court to overturn it.Earlier this week, the court stepped in and blocked a six day extension of the ballot receipt deadline in Wisconsin. Both the North Carolina and Pennsylvania cases, where the court declined to intervene, involved disputes over state law tied up in state courts. In Wisconsin, where the court did intervene, the case was limited to the federal court.In the Pennsylvania ruling, the three conservative justices also voiced support for the view that state supreme courts have limited authority to second-guess legislatures on rules for federal elections, a view Justice Brett Kavanaugh voiced on Monday. That view could come into play in post-election disputes in states like North Carolina and Pennsylvania – which have Republican-controlled legislatures but Democratic majorities on the supreme court. In the future, the lack of oversight from state courts could give state lawmakers far more leeway to pass laws that make it harder to vote.The court offered no explanation for its decision in North Carolina case, which is not unusual for cases such as this, which come before it on an emergency basis. Gorsuch, Alito, and Thomas all said they would have blocked the extension. Writing on behalf of the three, Gorsuch said the state board had exceeded its authority. He noted the state legislature has the power to set election rules and had issued a series of changes earlier this year, but left the ballot receipt deadline intact.Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who formally joined the court this week, did not participate in the case because the case needed to be resolved quickly and she did not have time to review the briefings in the case, the supreme court’s public information office said in a statement.Richard Hasen, a law professor at the University of California, Irvine, wrote in a blogpost that he was skeptical that the court would throw out late-arriving ballots after the election given that Pennsylvania voters are being instructed that they do not have to return their ballots by election day in order to have them count.“Without Roberts and Kavanaugh going along, even if Justice Barrett participated in future cases, there would not be five justices to throw out those ballots. It is still a theoretical possibility, however, especially with ballots now being segregated between those arriving by the original statutory deadline and later ballots,” he wrote. “Hopefully the election will not be close enough in either PA or the electoral college and the issue becomes moot in this election.”In the Wisconsin case, Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s conservative justices to reinstate the state’s deadline that all ballots must be received by election day. In a brief explanation Monday, Roberts said the Pennsylvania case was different because it concerned an interpretation of law from a state court, while the Wisconsin case was all in federal court.

One fatality has been reported so far after fast-moving Hurricane Zeta, a Category 2 storm, made landfall on the southeastern coast of Louisiana. The storm landed near Cocodrie, Louisiana, around 5:15 p.m. with wind speeds reaching 110 mph. This is the strongest hurricane landfall in the continental U.S. this late in the season in over 100 years, and the storm could potentially delivering a storm surge of up to 11 feet. Hurricane warnings had been issued for southeastern Louisiana, including New Orleans, and for southern Mississippi, including Gulfport and Biloxi.
