Event Update For 2014-05-16

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.

2014-05-16 - Two underground electrical explosions and fires erupt at 3 AM in Center City, Philadelphia (Pennsylvania):

Quote: "Two separate underground blasts caused at least one manhole cover to blow off and Philadelphia Police to block off a major intersection this morning. The first transformer exploded around 3 a.m. Friday at 15th and Market Streets in Center City. As officers investigated the first blast, they saw the second one occur at 15th and Market. After the manhole cover blew off, smoke could be seen coming from the hole, according to officers on the scene."

Note: Also see the car that burst into flame on the Ben Franklin Bridge in Philadelphia on this day...

2014-05-16 - Transformer explodes and burns in basement of ATT building in Redding (California):

Quote: "Gray said it was a coincidence that the blaze occurred a day after another electric fire burned another multi-story downtown Redding building..."

Note: Suuuure, just a coincidence...

Quote: "Investigators say there were serious injuries to the man’s left side, and his arm is most likely gone."

2014-05-16 - Portland (Oregon) now requiring security guards at buildings under construction to prevent fires:

Note: I warned about the problem with buildings under construction a long time ago. I guess after seeing enough such buildings going up in flames, Portland at least is trying to do something about it. They can't PREVENT the fires, but by having guards on the lookout they can at least catch the fires early, before they wipe out entire construction projects...

2014-05-16 - Cruise ship 'Saga Sapphire' hit by fire near the Isle of Mull (Scotland), ship loses power:

2014-05-16 - Bear cub drops dead in Trentino (Italy):

Note: Their story is self-contradictory. First they say there's no signs of injury, and the picture shows that's the case. Then they say it was killed by an alpha male. With what, invisible death beams? Those alpha male bears in Italy have better tech than human soldiers! Looks just like all the bodies of people being found mysteriously dead with no sign of injury, except smaller and hairier. This area is near the coast...

2014-05-16 - In separate events, two snorkelers die off the Florida Keys (Florida), woman coughs up blood:

Quote: "The sheriff's office said separately, on Thursday, a Pennsylvania woman was snorkeling off of Marathon when she began coughing up blood."

Note: She joins a growing list of people who have mysteriously bled from nose, mouth and/or ears and died, to go along with the rising numbers of people sickening or dying while foaming at the mouth. Hydrogen sulfide is rising from the depths of the oceans, along with methane, and it is water-soluble, so you can die simply from contact with contaminated water. If you get in water, you'll never know if it's contaminated, until you start dying anyway, and then you might have just enough time left for one last thought...

Note: Empty 'ghost boat' found first, as usual...

  1. Hey Jonny: I saw the news lady say she'd get back to us about the cause of the two center city Philly transformers exploding but haven't heard anything over the past few days regarding it. I really don't expect them to tell us that hydrogen sulfide was the cause and that it can happen any time any where - and, oh by the way, it will kill you if you breathe it in as its wafting by (off the Delaware River or the Schuykill or any of the other sources of water in the area). Nice grab of the car on the bridge in flames too on the same day, no less.

    There's so much good stuff here I can't comment on it all (as usual). The fish-kills are becoming so frequent I almost expect them every day. How much longer is it going to take before people wake up to the fact that the oceans are dying and that there won't be anything edible from that source soon?

    Oh no, not riding mowers too! Geez, what am I supposed to cut this acre of weeds with?

    Awesome gathering of Other Stories of Interest! That last one was a hoot.
