Event Update For 2014-11-19





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.

Quote: "A car fire that killed a man in Melbourne's south-east on Thursday morning is not suspicious, police say."

Note: Yet another person burning to death near a coast. This is not only a coastal city but the address listed is also just one block east (downwind) of Dandenong Creek. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any methane and/or hydrogen sulfide in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and animals and people sickening or dying more common during those hours...

Quote: "They've made three separate arrests in the past two months, including one just last week. Just when they think they've got their man and that the fires will stop, they start again. 'This is very uncommon, usually when we have a string of fires and get someone in custody, it's pretty much guaranteed it won't happen anymore.'"

Note: They can arrest every single person in San Diego and San Diego will still keep burning. And it's going to get waaaay worse too, not just there, but everywhere...

Quote: "Three sailors were forced to abandon ship after a fire erupted on their sailboat. According to the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre, RCC Bermuda received a call from the US Coastguard in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday morning to warn them that the Wooden Heart, a sailboat with three people on board, had been disabled by an on-board fire which occurred 240 nautical miles north of Bermuda."

2014-11-19 - 27 passenger buses destroyed by fire in the wee hours while parked at facility in coastal Motherwell (South Africa):
http://www.salabournews.co.za/index.php/home/latest-news/70-labour-news/21663-twenty-seven-buses-of-algoa-bus-company-gutted.html

Note: The record for most buses to be destroyed in one fire remains at 37, which burned up in May 2013 at a depot near coastal Torquay (Britain), mentioned in the 2013-05-12 update. Since all vehicles are now randomly-igniting firebombs that can go off at any time, parking vehicles next to each other just compounds the chance that when one vehicle ignites, they ALL get destroyed...

Note: They're definitely linked by a number of factors: 1) all happened near a coast; 2) all happened in the wee hours; 3) all share the same atmosphere. Looks like Australia's fire officials are oblivious to the hydrogen sulfide blowing ashore off the ocean and turning coastal Jurien Bay into a veritable ghost town, mentioned in the 2014-08-09 update. Maybe they'll wake up before Australia has become a charred wasteland, and maybe they won't. We'll find out! Also see the man who burned to death in a burning car at 1:10 AM in the Dandenong area of coastal Melbourne (Australia), one block from Dandenong Creek...

2014-11-19 - Update on woman who dropped dead in hair salon in coastal New York City: was bleeding from nose/mouth:
https://www.trunews.com/woman-monitored-ebola-drops-dead-blood-coming-face-nose-mouth/

Quote: "An eyewitness who saw the body said there was blood coming from her 'face, nose and mouth.'"

Note: As mentioned many times, hydrogen sulfide poisoning can cause bleeding from nose/mouth. Everyone is scared of Ebola, of course, not realizing that people have been mysteriously dying after bleeding out like this since long before there was an Ebola outbreak. If you start bleeding out from your nose/mouth/ears and dying, don't be so sure that's it's Ebola that's killing you...

  1. Good morning Jonny. I just saw this and wanted to bring it to your attention.

    Methane gas leak in China

    This report is from back in May, 2014

    Village of fire: How methane gas seeping out of the ground means that Chinese farmers working in the field can’t risk even a single spark from a tool in case the air bursts into flames

    •Nanjiawan village in China has been dubbed the 'Invisible Fire Village'

    •Lighting a cigarette or starting electrical equipment can be hazardous

    •Locals called in priests at first believing they had been cursed by evil spirits

    1. Good find! No, hadn't seen that one. Sounds like that village I DID just mention, where 100 houses have mysteriously burned up, in Soro, Bauchi State (Nigeria), mentioned in the 2014-11-11 update. Add to that the exploding Siberian craters, the road that exploded and burned in Vietnam, the melting roads at Yellowstone, the burning river in China, the methane found in the ground around 19 homes in Santa Maria (California), the methane found in the ground in some town in Pennsylvania, the methane coming out of some rivers in Australia, the methane that burped from the ocean in Santa Monica Bay (California), plus all the dissociating methane clathrate deposits in the oceans, and I'm sure I have left off many similar events. Whew.

      And I'll see your burning village and raise you an exploding oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico!

      Everything We Know So Far About The Oil Rig Explosion In The Gulf Of Mexico

      On Wednesday afternoon, an offshore oil rig owned by Houston-based Fieldwood Energy experienced an explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, killing one contracted worker. The rig was not producing oil at the time, and no oil spilled into the Gulf, according to the company and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE).

      “This was an isolated incident that has been fully contained,” Fieldwood Energy CEO Matt McCarroll said in a statement on Friday. “The facility was not damaged and there was no pollution that resulted from the incident.” [nothing to see here, move along please . . .]

      Here’s everything we know, and everything we don’t know, about the incident so far.

      Three workers were injured in the blast, and one was killed

      The explosion occurred Thursday afternoon on Fieldwood’s Echo Platform at around 3 p.m., about 12 miles off the coast of Louisiana. One worker — whose name has not yet been released — was killed. Three more workers were injured, and Fieldwood Energy said in a statement Thursday that they were being treated at an unnamed onshore medical facility. Both BSSE and the U.S. Coast Guard responded to the incident.

      Plague in Madagascar has killed 40 people out of 119 cases -WHO

      GENEVA (Reuters) - An outbreak of the plague has killed 40 people out of 119 confirmed cases in Madagascar since late August and there is a risk of the disease spreading rapidly in the capital, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday.

      So far two cases and one death have been recorded in the capital Antananarivo but those figures could climb quickly due to "the city's high population density and the weakness of the healthcare system", the WHO warned.

      2 moderate earthquakes strike California in 5-minute span

      SAN JUAN BAUTISTA, Calif. -- Two moderate earthquakes have struck central California, one of which was widely felt across the region.

      The U.S. Geological Survey reported a magnitude-3.6 earthquake struck at 10:21 p.m. Wednesday and a magnitude-4.2 temblor struck five minutes later. At least one smaller quake followed later.

      The epicenter was about 2 miles south of San Juan Bautista and 11 miles northeast of Salinas.

      Utah Considers Cutting Off Water to the NSA’s Monster Data Center

      Lawmakers are considering a bill that would shut off the water spigot to the massive data center operated by the National Security Agency in Bluffdale, Utah.

      The legislation, proposed by Utah lawmaker Marc Roberts, is due to go to the floor of the Utah House of Representatives early next year, but it was debated in a Public Utilities and Technology Interim Committee meeting on Wednesday. The bill, H.B. 161, directs municipalities like Bluffdale to “refuse support to any federal agency which collects electronic data within this state.” [this won't go anywhere - watch how the legislator just "disappears" before the bill even gets to the floor . . .]

      Parallel Worlds Could Explain Wacky Quantum Physics

      The idea that an infinite number of parallel worlds could exist alongside our own is hard to wrap the mind around, but a version of this so-called Many Worlds theory could provide an answer to the controversial idea of quantum mechanics and its many different interpretations. [read the rest]

    Sinkhole in Lehigh Valley swallows truck, forces evacuation

    BETHLEHEM, Pa. >> A sinkhole partly swallowed a utility truck and forced the evacuation of 30 people after it struck, but did not break, a gas line in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley.

    Officials ordered the evacuation around 12:20 a.m. Friday. They say the sinkhole opened about 90 minutes earlier, as crews worked on a water main break in Bethlehem Township.

    The driver of the PPL truck escaped safely. The truck remained in the hole for several hours, resting against a 4-inch, high-pressure natural gas line.

    Gas explosion rocks London Hyatt Churchill hotel

    A gas explosion has been reported at the Hyatt Regency Churchill hotel in London. The building is reportedly being evacuated.

    At least five people might have been injured in the explosion that took place in the kitchen area of the hotel, according to The Telegraph. Some reports suggest the blast happened in the basement of the building.

    [part of witness comment]

    "Felt entire building shake (even on 8th floor) no power evacuated in complete darkness even fire escapes dark!"
