Event Update For 2014-01-24

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2014-01-24 - Underground electrical explosions and fire scorches cars at 6:30 AM in coastal Manhattan (New York):
Quote: "Explosions rocked East 89th Street as manholes caught fire Friday morning, scalding cars and blowing out windows, witnesses and officials said. Upper East Siders awoke to two explosions and flames blasting from manholes near 150 E. 89th St., between Lexington and Third avenues, about 6:30 a.m., according to witnesses and the FDNY. 'The second one broke my window. It sounded like a bomb. It shook my whole building,' said Rene Ashcraft, a 42-year-old personal trainer who lives steps from the manholes. 'The explosions were five minutes apart. After the second one, my whole window lights up with fire. The flames were everywhere. They were about 4 feet high,' he added."
Note: And the day prior, underground electrical explosions and fire hit Brooklyn, as mentioned in the 2014-01-23 update. I mentioned then that New York is getting hit worse by underground electrical explosions and fires than any other city, at least so far. What if entire city blocks start exploding and burning? Seems entirely possible. I guess then those evacuation signs that went up along the East Coast in 2012 will get some use. They want to blame salt, which means they're oblivious to the fact that these underground electrical explosions and fires were happening - and escalating - before the first snowfall...
2014-01-24 - Subway fire erupts in the East River Amtrak tunnel in coastal New York City (New York), transit disrupted:
Note: Both coastal London and coastal New York City pumped an innocuous heavier-than-air gas into their subway systems last year, to see where a heavier-than-air gas would go once inside the subways. The London subway gas test was mentioned in the 2013-06-14 update. The NYC subway gas test was mentioned in the 2013-04-26 update...

Quote: "The whole flat shook from the force of it and I could see a fireball from my window that went up about 30 feet into the air."

2014-01-24 - Tank explodes at trucking firm in Knoxville (Arkansas), 1 killed:

Note: Knoxville (Arkansas) is just east (downwind) of the Arkansas River...

2014-01-24 - Rare winter wildfire erupts along the Pacific Coast near Arch Cape (Oregon), visible for 20 miles:

Quote: "One firefighter told KGW a winter fire this big has not been seen in years. A wildfire was also burning Friday morning in Marion County near Butte Creek Falls."

2014-01-24 - Massive wildfire burns 28,000 acres and counting near the coast in Southern California:

Quote: "Southern California firefighters battled a series of sprawling, brush-fueled wildfires on Friday, including one that had blazed a trail to the beach in Ventura County and was pushing toward Malibu before a 180-degree shift in winds sent the massive blaze barreling northeast..."

Quote: "More than 4,000 homes remained in danger Friday afternoon from the fire, Nash said. Eight helicopters and six winged aircraft joined roughly 10,000 firefighters in attacking the blaze..."

Note: Scary to imagine what fire season is going to be like once it begins...

2014-01-24 - Wildfire breaks out at 2:30 AM in North Lake Tahoe (Nevada), near Lake Tahoe:

2014-01-24 - Israeli Navy patrol boat bursts into flame along the Gaza Coast (Israel), 15 injured:,7340,L-4480674,00.html

2014-01-24 - Three passenger buses destroyed by fire just after 6:30 AM while parked at bus depot in Liskeard (Britain):

Note: Arson suspected. I don't find the surveillance footage or the other evidence of arson convincing, for the obvious reason: there isn't any. This looks just like all the other parked non-running vehicles that have been spontaneously igniting...

2014-01-24 - Passenger bus bursts into flame on highway near Kolkata (India):

Quote: "Two fire incidents in Volvo buses in Karnataka had left 52 people dead late last year. While 45 passengers travelling on a Bangalore-Hyderabad bus died on October 30 near Mehbubnagar, seven others died were killed the same way near Haveri on November 14."

Note: And that's not even counting the dozens of people incinerated in burning trains in India recently. India is clearly waking up to all the vehicular fires, just as Vietnam already has...

Quote: "A fire of unknown origin destroyed a 16-room building Friday at the Red Barn Motel..."

Note: Heh, there's that 'fire of unknown origin' phrase again. 'What destroyed human civilization on Earth, Mommy?' 'It was fires of unknown origin, honey. Now eat your Martian beans and do your homework.'

2014-01-24 - Woman found burned to death on levee road near Snodgrass Slough in Galt (California):

Note: She still had a diamond ring and a necklace of some kind on, so it seems doubtful that anyone did this to her. She probably spontaneously combusted. Anyone burning her would do so to eradicate evidence and make identification difficult, and anyone going to that much trouble wouldn't miss a diamond ring and necklace...

Quote: "The friend told police Tillett smoked cigarettes but did not have a history of drug or alcohol abuse. He also said Tillett had been experiencing flu-like symptoms for the past few days and had been taking over-the-counter cold medications."

Note: Hydrogen sulfide poisoning can cause 'flu-like' symptoms: headaches, nausea, feeling hot, dizziness, difficulty breathing, etc. And then if you got a good enough dose, you eventually go into respiratory paralysis, stop breathing, and they find your corpse...

2014-01-24 - Girl, 13, found dead in bath at home in Kidderminster (Britain):

2014-01-24 - HazMat event, UPS driver suddenly sickens, feels dizzy, in Midway City (California):

Note: They checked the packages, no problem there. I wonder where this guy had been driving before he sickened and got dizzy. Near a creek or stream, in a valley, east of a ravine or ditch? He's probably luckier than he knows that he didn't just flop over dead...

2014-01-24 - 'Gas odor' reported at Deep Creek Central Elementary School, no leak found, in Chesapeake (Virginia):

Note: Natural gas (which is primarily methane) has no odor, so they add mercaptan to it, which smells like 'rotten eggs'. That's also what hydrogen sulfide smells like in low concentrations, so people will confuse the two. No leak here, so it wasn't natural gas. This school is on Shipyard Road, near the coast, and it's also just northeast (downwind) of the Great Dismal Swamp and Lake Drummond...

2014-01-24 - Empty 'ghost ship' adrift in the Atlantic, possibly filled with disease-ridden cannibal rats:

Note: Someone should be able to squeeze a movie out of this. SiFi Channel, get to work!


  1. Hey Jonny:

    Your link to the death in Providence Twp PA caught my eye (I live relatively nearby) - and I was wondering where and how hydrogen sulfide or methane may have been the cause.


  2. HAH!

    Now that I examined the address, North Trooper Road, there's a major tributary of the Schuylkill River running nearby. (I wonder if it's frozen like the Delaware?)

    No need to answer the above question - sorry to have wasted your time, Jonny.


    1. Yeah, there's usually a low-lying area around these multiple-person death incidents. The event that really set my alarms off was when two college students dropped dead in southern Illinois in 2011, on the same night, on the same campus, but in separate dorm buildings, just northeast (downwind) of the Mississippi River. I hadn't started documenting anything in 2011, so I don't have a link for that one, alas.

  3. I wonder when the 'authorities' will wake up to this situation that you provide quality evidence to every day? Not that it will matter - we're well on our way to near term extinction - and there isn't anything we can do about it now.


    1. Well, if we all actually faced the problem, and fought the war for survival whole-heartedly, we could probably improve the number of survivors. Like, from 2% of the population to 5% of the population, or whatever. Still bleak, but that's how 'victory' will be measured, by the number of survivors.

      I'm pretty sure the authorities aren't going to wake up until the people themselves wake up and make them. It's gonna get kinda hard to keep sweeping the end of the world as we know it under the rug, but I gotta admit, they've been doing a fine job so far!
