Foreclosures up by more than 60 percent this year Safety issues force Southwest Airlines to ground 43 planes
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Nearly
60 percent more U.S. homes faced
foreclosure in February than in the
same monthlast year, with Nevada,
California and Florida showing
the highest foreclosure rates, a
research firm said yesterday.
A total of 223,651 homes across
the nation received at least one
notice from lenders last month
related to overdue payments, up
59.8 percent from 139,922 a year
earlier, according to Irvine, Calif.-
based RealtyTrac Inc.
Nearly half of the homes on the
most recent list had slipped into
default for the first time.
Nevada had the nation's highest
foreclosure rate, with one in every
165 households receiving at least
one foreclosure-related notice. It
had 6,167 properties facing foreclo-
sure, a 68 percent increase from a
year earlier and up 1 percent from
January, RealtyTrac said.
Most of the troubled properties
were located in California, Florida,
Texas, Michigan and Ohio - states
where home prices have plunged as
the housing boom went bust.
DALLAS (AP) - Southwest
Airlines Co. canceled flights yes-
terday and temporarily grounded
43 planes to examine if they were
sound enough to carry passengers,
the latest twist in the low-cost car-
rier's saga of missed safety inspec-
tions and civil penalties.
The groundings affected about
8 percent of Southwest's fleet, and
came as the airline faces a $10.2
million civil penalty for continuing
to fly nearly 50 planes that hadn't
been inspected for cracks in their
Southwest shares fell more than
9 percent before closing down 7.3
Since the Federal Aviation
Administration announced the
penalty last week, Southwest has
endured a steady drip of bad public-
ity, which is unusual for the nation's
most consistently profitable carrier
and one that has never had an acci-
dent that killed passengers or crew
Yesterday, word filtered out
that the airline had taken 38
planes out of service, along with
five others that were already
in hangars undergoing routine
