Event Update For 2018-03-27

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.

2018-03-27 - Unknown rotten egg odor in the atmosphere blows through Amarillo (Texas):

Quote: "The City of Amarillo wants to advise residents that they are aware of the natural gas odor across Amarillo. Several departments have been made aware of the odor, and the Amarillo Emergency Communications Center has received numerous calls about the odor. At this time, responders have found no indications of a leak associated with the odor. Atmos Energy believes the weather conditions are bringing the odor from a source outside the Amarillo area."

2018-03-27 - Passenger plane hit by smoke at airport in Moscow (Russia):

Quote: "A passenger plane was evacuated at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport after the cabin filled with smoke. Passengers were forced to evacuate via inflatable slides in the dark. Flight GH-173 to Novosibirsk had to abort take-off late on Tuesday, when the pilots of the Boeing 727 plane noticed smoke in the cockpit. The entire landing strip was immediately blocked off and passengers were ordered to leave the plane via inflatable slides."

Note: This is the 39th aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2018...

2018-03-27 - Water tank explodes in Pallabi (Bangladesh), 5 injured:

Quote: "According to Yakub’s brother-in-law Md Maruf, the explosion occurred at around 11:30am on Tuesday, when Hasan was brought in inspect and clean the reserve water tank as it was not operating properly. 'Hasan tried to shine a flashlight into the tank to check the water level. As he could still not see properly, a candle was brought to provide more light. When they tried to light the candle, there was an explosion,' he added. DMCH burn unit Resident Dr Partha Shankar Pal said all of the injured were in critical condition, having suffered severe burns in their nasal passages."

Note: The water was probably contaminated with methane. That started happening here in the US some years back in some spots too, where people could light their tap water on fire. The methane won't necessarily STAY in the water though - it'll absorb some, and once it has, it'll emit some too. If it accumulates, say, in a water tank, and you light a candle to see what's up with your water supply...BOOM! The same thing will happen with hydrogen sulfide too, although if that had been the problem in this case then all of those people would probably be dead, not just horribly burned...
