Event Update For 2017-07-27

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.

2017-07-27 - Rotten egg odor hits Columbus (Ohio), gas company says it's not natural gas:

Quote: "Along with local fire departments, we are receiving calls about an odor in the Columbus area. So far, we have not found any evidence that natural gas is responsible for the odor. Natural gas has a sharp and distinctive odor, often described as 'rotten eggs.' The odor includes sulfur, the same compound that produces an odor after a match is struck."

2017-07-27 - RV bursts into flame and kills woman while parked in coastal Anacortes (Washington):

Quote: "A body was found inside an RV after a fire on March Point, northwest of the Tesoro refinery, in the late afternoon Thursday. Anacortes Fire Department was first on scene after the 3:49 p.m. call, followed by personnel from districts 11 and 13, said Chief Roy Horn of District 13. The body was thought to be a female in her 60s but that has not been confirmed, Horn said. Pets may also have been killed by the fire. When crews arrived on scene the RV was fully involved in flames, said Anacortes Chief Richard Curtis. There was no potential for a rescue at that point, he said."
