100 arrested after SoCal spring break party goes bad

A Southern California party attended mainly by college students ended with more than 100 arrests and dozens hospitalized. 

"Hundreds of police officers were brought in to contain the violence. Things escalated about 8 o'clock last night when sheriff's deputies responded to two stabbings." (Via KABC

"Police say there was widespread vandalism, small fires,, and at least one car smashed at the so-called ‘Deltopia’ gathering last night in Isla Vista. Police say two people were treated for stab wounds and two officers were hurt after being hit by objects thrown by partygoers." (Via KERO

KNBC reports 100 people were arrested and 26 people were taken to the hospital as a result of the street party that attracted 15,000 people. One injured police officer was reportedly hit by a backpack full of alcohol bottles and another by a thrown brick. 

Deltopia is an annual, unauthorized party that attracts students from the University of Santa Barbara campus. It generally involves drinking, loud music and basically whatever else college students do on spring break. (Via YouTube / I'm Schmacked

Still, authorities say it's not the first time the party has gotten out of hand. Authorities have taken measures to curb how  out of control it is and school officials have advised students against attending. 

"We're encouraging our students to stay home. It's supposed to be a great weekend."

"We have planned for this event. We have more than 100 law enforcement personnel assigned." (Via KSBY

Last year, a UCSB student died in connection to a Deltopia party. Freshman Giselle Ayala reportedly fell off a cliff while fleeing a party being broken up by police officers. (Via The Santa Barbara Independent

Officers were able to control the crowd around 1 a.m. using tear gas, foam projectiles and help from neighboring law enforcement agencies.

  • We have updated information regarding mosquito traps testing positive for West Nile in Tulsa County. The Tulsa Health Department reports they tested around 1,772 mosquitoes over the last week for the virus and three traps tested positive. For reference, there has been two human cases of the virus in Tulsa County so far this year.  State wide, seven people have tested positive for the virus. Remember to wear spray with DEET, when going outdoors.  
  • We're in for an uncomfortable day weather wise in the Tulsa area. It will be a good idea to stay close to an air conditioner and drink plenty of fluids.   “Saturday looks fairly hot and humid,” National Weather Service said.  “Highs up into the mid 90s.  The heat index values will be in the 100 to 105 degree range during the afternoon.” We do have a slight chance for thunderstorms during the late afternoon hours. There is no rain in the forecast for Sunday.  NWS reports the high will be around 95 degrees, with plenty of sun.  
  • The state unemployment rate edged up to 4.4 percent in July. The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission reported Friday that the sharpest decline was in the manufacturing industry, which lost 1,400 jobs. The commission says an increase in total employment of 242 was offset by an overall decline of 5,445 in the number of jobless, while the number in the total labor force fell by 5,200. The rate stayed steady at 4.3 percent for of each of the previous four months. The national unemployment rate fell from 4.4 percent in June to 4.3 percent in July.
  • Earth yet again sizzled with unprecedented heat last month. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Thursday Earth sweated to its second hottest month since recordkeeping began in 1880. At 61.89 degrees (16.63 Celsius), last month was behind July 2016's all-time record by .09 degrees. But Earth's land temperatures in July were the hottest on record at 59.96 degrees (15.5 Celsius), passing July 2016's by one-seventh of a degree. Land measurements are important because that's where we live, said NOAA climate scientist Jake Crouch. Earlier this week, NASA calculated that July 2017 was a tad hotter than 2016, making it essentially a tie for all-time hottest month. NASA uses a newer set of ocean measurements and includes estimates for the Arctic unlike NOAA. Record heat was reported in Africa, Australia, parts of Asia, the Middle East and the Indian ocean, Crouch said. 'There is simply no denying the mounting evidence globally and regionally - the new climate normal is upon us now,' said University of Oklahoma meteorology professor Jason Furtado, who wasn't part of the new report.
  • A dog lost two years ago in a massive windstorm has been reunited with its owner, KHQ reported. Shanley Heinsma let her husky, Shadow, out of the house during the storm in Spokane, Washington. That was the last time she saw the dog. Heinsma posted the dog’s photo on Facebook and put up posters hoping that someone might have found it. Last Wednesday, she saw a post for a missing husky, and it had Shadow’s distinctive markings. “I told my fiance, I'm like, there's just no way right? It's been so long,' she told KHQ. After comparing photographs, it turned out to be the missing dog. Shadow and Heinsma are back together. 'Other people that lose their animals, don't ever give up,' she told KHQ. 'The more you get your word out there the more people that know you're searching.
