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.

2014-06-30 - Road explodes and smokes in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam):
Quote: "A road in the center of Ho Chi Minh City erupted on Monday in smoke, frightening dozens of local citizens and passers-by. Many were taking shelter from the rain under District 1’s Bui Huu Nghia Bridge at around 11 a.m. on June 16, when a loud explosion sound made them all jump. The explosion, coming from beneath the surface of Hoang Sa Street sent two wide schisms through the surface of the asphalt, each more than 2 meters long and 3 centimeters wide. The cracks are four meter away from each other. None was injured in the incident, since the street’s section was empty at the time it occurred. Local Nguyen Thi Tuong, whose home is close to the scene, told Tuoi Tre that she was cooking her lunch when she suddenly heard a loud noise. When she looked outside, the surface of the road was totally destroyed and some smoke was rising from the cracked asphalt. The smoke only stopped after 20 minutes, a witness said, adding that the pavement was broken into trenches."
Note: Well, we've already seen a river on fire, in coastal Wenzhou (China), in March, mentioned in the 2014-03-08 update, and there have been plenty of underground explosions and fires of all kinds, so now I guess we may start seeing ROADS spontaneously exploding?! That'll certainly make driving even more interesting than it already is!
