2013 - DEC - Spotlight Stories

Category: Unusual Vehicular Accidents
2013-12-01 - Passenger train derails in coastal Bronx (New York), at least 4 killed, 60+ injured:
Quote: "Four people have been killed and more than 60 injured in a passenger train crash in the Bronx area of New York."
Quote: "A Metro-North commuter train rounding a riverside curve derailed Sunday morning, killing four people, injuring more than 60 and sending a chain of toppled cars trailing off the track just inches from the water."
2013-12-01 - Freight train derails, locomotive plunges down ravine, near Bayard (New Mexico), all 3 aboard killed:
Note: Trains haven't been faring too well lately. Neither have planes or boats or buses or trucks, for that matter..

2013-12-02 - Noxious odor hits Fond du Lac (Wisconsin), some residents sicken:
Quote: "A bad odor that has settled in a large area of the city is making some people sick to their stomachs."
Quote: "...the odor seems to be all over the city. The odor has been described as 'rotten-egg sulfur.' The wind was out of the south-southwest, so the odor couldn’t be blamed on Kaukauna paper mills."
Note: They think maybe the smell is coming from an old landfill. Maybe it is and maybe it isn't. This is hydrogen sulfide here, can't be anything else, and residents should be alarmed at the fact that they've got poison gas floating through their city, regardless of the source. On the plus side, the fact that they can smell it means it is lowish in concentration, so it just sickened people. When it's higher in concentration, you may not smell it at all, and then it might just kill everyone around. Fortunately, that didn't happen here...this time.

2013-12-03 - Massive mysterious explosion shakes homes and alarms residents in Carlsbad (New Mexico):
Quote: "Robin Cathey, who was out of town during the incident, said that she has been hearing about the boom from friends and neighbors and feels the lack of information about what might have caused the booming sound and tremors is frightening. 'We just want to know what caused it,' Cathey said."
Note: These mysterious and powerful explosions - sometimes accompanied by a 'flash of light' - are almost certainly caused by large clouds of flammable methane and/or hydrogen sulfide in the atmosphere finding an ignition source and detonating. These explosions really began accelerating this year but started 2 or 3 years ago, right as methane emissions from the oceans began increasing and reports of 'rotten egg' smells and other HazMat incidents started to become more common. Eventually these explosions may rival those caused by small nuclear bombs, like the fission bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, but minus the radiation. (Unless one of these explosions takes out a nuclear plant, many of which are on coasts and all of which are near low-lying bodies of water for cooling, in which case then we will get radiation too.)

2013-12-04 - Blaze erupts in subway in Moscow (Russia):
Note: And a subway fire just hit New York City too, as mentioned in the 2013-11-28 update. And a fire hit the subway in London recently as well, as mentioned in the 2013-11-26 update. Both New York City and London conducted tests this year to see where a heavier-than-air gas would go once in their respective subway systems. Hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas, it is extremely flammable, and it is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, and rusty iron/steel. It's also a deadly poison and smoke from fires involving hydrogen sulfide may cause dizziness, difficulty breathing, nausea, seizures and more...
2013-12-04 - Transit train stops in tunnel, brakes smoking, near Orinda (California), near the coast, passenger has seizure:
Quote: "When the train finally began moving again and pulled into the Rockridge station in Oakland at 9:30 a.m., firefighters treated 11 people for medical problems, nine of whom were taken to hospitals, Drayton said. The patients were treated for dizziness, shortness of breath and nausea and were expected to recover..."
Quote: "A friend of mine on FB is actually on that train and said at least one person has had a seizure and a lot of people are having trouble breathing."
Quote: "The white smoke caused people not to feel well..."

2013-12-05 - Strong odor forces evacuation of nearly 100 people from several buildings in Hazleton (Pennsylvania):
Quote: "Nearly 100 people were evacuated from several buildings in Luzerne the Broad Street Exchange in Hazleton was evacuated after reports of a strong odor. The building houses part of the Luzerne County Community College Hazleton campus. People say they felt something that was burning their eyes and throats. Several area businesses were also evacuated."
2013-12-05 - 'Gas' odor hits several areas in Vernon (Connecticut):
Quote: "From just before 8 until about 8:30 Thursday morning, fire officials responded to reports of a gas odor at Wellwood Circle, at Northeast School and at 117 East Main St. All three odors were located outside and nothing was detected inside any of the addresses..."
Note: So this was a gas blowing around in the atmosphere outdoors...

2013-12-06 - Underground electrical fire erupts at 3:30 AM in downtown Dallas (Texas):
Quote: "Somewhere around 20 emergency units reported to the scene of a three-alarm fire that began at about 3:30 a.m. Friday. The blaze started in an underground electrical vault located next to The Joule hotel. Earlier in the morning, flames were shooting 25 to 30 feet into the air out of a hole in the sidewalk."
2013-12-06 - Underground fire breaks out at Daw Mill Colliery, near Nuneaton (Britain):
Quote: "The colliery closed on 22 February as a result of another underground blaze, which left hundreds of miners out of work."
Note: More underground fires breaking out. Hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas and it is finding its way to low-lying areas. It's also highly flammable (much more flammable than natural gas or methane) and it is also reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, and rusty iron/steel. We probably shouldn't be too attached to electricity or driving. (Says the guy using an electricity-powered computer. Heh.)

2013-12-07 - Underground electrical fire erupts in Center City, Philadelphia (Pennsylvania):
Note: The Center City area of Philadelphia is right on the banks of the Delaware River...
2013-12-07 - Underground electrical fire erupts at Washington and Canal Streets in Chicago (Illinois):
2013-12-07 - Underground electrical fire breaks out on High Street in Chelmsford (Britain):
Quote: "Suddenly the ground just burst open and left a little crater..."
Note: An underground fire erupted in Dallas (Texas) the day prior, and an underground fire broke out near Nuneaton (Britain) too, as mentioned in the 2013-12-06 update...

2013-12-08 - Underground electrical explosion and fire blows off manhole at 5 AM in Portland (Oregon), trains halted:
Quote: "An underground explosion blew a manhole cover off in downtown Portland early Sunday. KGW-TV reports crews from the Portland fire department went to put out a fire in an underground electrical vault around 5 a.m."
2013-12-08 - Underground electrical explosion and fire hits La Verne (California), 650 homes go dark:
Quote: "Resident Monica Prieto said she heard two 'booms' from the explosion and flames near the street in front of her house."
2013-12-08 - Underground electrical vault starts smoldering at George Bush Airport in Houston (Texas), terminal evacuated:
Note: Well, there's a plus side here: once all of our electrical infrastructure has been destroyed, the number of deaths by electrocution will plummet! No electric bills either! Sweet!

2013-12-09 - Transformer explodes and burns at nuclear plant near Russelville (Arkansas), one unit taken offline:,0,5970731.story
Quote: "An Entergy spokesperson has confirmed reports of a Monday morning fire at Arkansas Nuclear One. Donna Gregory said Unit 2 is offline due to an early morning fire in a transformer."
Quote: "Bowling said the incident occurred at about 7:50 a.m. local time and there may have been an explosion in the transformer area as there were reports of people hearing something in the area at that time."
Quote: "Arkansas Nuclear One, located along the Arkansas River about 90 miles northwest of Little Rock, supplies 1,823 megawatts of power, which is the equivalent to about 30 percent of the total energy demand of Arkansas."
Note: There are two reactors here, so the one reactor that was taken offline normally supplies about 15% of the electrical power needs of the entire state of Arkansas...
2013-12-09 - Transformer explodes and burns at 6 AM in Exton (Pennsylvania), SEPTA train transit disrupted:
Quote: "The fire broke out before 6:00 a.m. Monday near the intersection of the Route 30 bypass and Route 202 in Exton. Several explosions were visible on a Sky6 camera in the area."
2013-12-09 - Explosions erupt along powerlines in coastal Melbourne (Australia), thousands lose power:
Quote: "She said could not yet say what the cause of the blackout was, but residents had reported hearing 'large bangs' before losing power. MFB spokesman Trevor Woodward said the outage was likely caused by a four minor pole fires in Coburg, sparked by explosions in transformers on powerlines."

2013-12-10 - Underground fire breaks out at landfill just outside Pasco (Washington):
Note: Pasco is located at the confluence of the Columbia River and the Snake River...
2013-12-10 - Recycling center erupts in flame on Weaving Lane in Dewsbury (Britain):
2013-12-10 - Paper bag storage facility hit by major fire in Westbury (Britain):
Note: And the day prior, a major blaze hit a recycling center in coastal San Francisco (California), as mentioned in the 2013-12-09 update. From the full hypothesis: "Trash-related facilities such as recycling centers and landfills will burn hard too, as hydrogen sulfide is absorbed into flammable absorbent materials like wood, paper, cardboard, straw, hay, dried brush, generic trash, clothing, cotton, wool."

2013-12-11 - Tractor trailer bursts into flame at 4:45 AM on I-10 in coastal Gautier (Mississippi):
2013-12-11 - Vehicle bursts into flame on I-10 in coastal Biloxi (Mississippi):
Quote: "A second vehicle fire on Interstate 10 Wednesday has all three west bound lanes blocked..."
Note: So a semi burst into flame on I-10 near the Gulf of Mexico in Mississippi and then another vehicle burst into flame on I-10 near the Gulf of Mexico in Mississippi, about 15 miles apart. Same general area, same day, same atmosphere...
2013-12-11 - Two cars destroyed by fire, a third damaged, in casino parking garage in coastal Biloxi (Mississippi):
Note: And more vehicles burning in Biloxi. The wind on this day must have been carrying hydrogen sulfide and methane from the Gulf of Mexico right onto Mississippi generally and the Biloxi area particularly...

2013-12-12 - Woman, 52, goes out on porch for a cig and burns to death at home in The Woodlands (Texas):
Quote: "A 52-year-old mother of two burned to death on the front porch of her home in The Woodlands while her children watched in horror."
Quote: "Montgomery County investigators said the fire erupted on the front porch, where the woman was sitting alone on a metal chair. She somehow could not escape the flames."
Note: Those kids are gonna have PTSD. This event is eerily similar to an event where a woman burned to death on her porch swing in West Frankfort (Illinois), as mentioned in the 2012-02-07 update. She may also have gone outside to smoke a cig. That event made me realize that people burning to death was going to be a very serious problem. A little hydrogen sulfide blows by, possibly mixed with methane, knocks people unconscious and ignites a fire. Another similar event was a man found with his head on fire, sitting in a chair and rocking, lit cigarette in his hand, in an apartment in Las Vegas (Nevada), as mentioned in the 2012-11-24 update. Here's a quote from that story:
Quote: "Drake opened the door to see his friend, Eric Olsen, 55, on fire, his hand clutching a burning cigarette. 'His hair was on fire,' Drake said about two hours after the blaze was extinguished. 'I couldn't get his fire extinguisher to work, so I had to get mine. I saw him on fire. His TV was on. He wasn't yelling. He wasn't doing nothing. He was rocking a little bit in his chair, holding a cigarette.'"
Note: He was apparently still alive as he sat there, rocking and burning to death, but he was probably unconscious or having a neurological seizure due to brain damage caused by hydrogen sulfide's neurotoxic properties. Many other people have burned to death in unusual circumstances besides the ones I have mentioned; these are just a few of the more notable examples that have stuck in my mind as I have observed this extinction event accelerating. Burning to death in vehicles is another escalating and very serious danger now as well...

2013-12-13 - Huge snowstorm hits Jerusalem (Israel) with 20+ inches of snow, worst in at least 60 years:
Quote: "Israeli authorities said at least 50 centimeters (20 inches) had fallen since Thursday, and forecasters said the snow would continue through much of the day. The extent of the storm overburdened Jerusalem's rescue services, and the Israeli military helped police rescue hundreds of people stranded in vehicles on highways near Jerusalem, with more than 500 being housed in a city convention being used as a makeshift shelter."
2013-12-13 - Snow hits Cairo (Egpypt), first time in more than a century:,0,1691393.story#axzz2nMzV6vMp
Note: These events look like more possible signs of volcanic winter...

2013-12-14 - Huge blaze engulfs building under construction in the wee hours in Glendale (Colorado):
Quote: "Flames from Saturday's massive structure fire in Glendale were so powerful they skipped over a roadway, burned two separate apartment complexes and melted the front ends of nearly 20 parked vehicles. Investigators spent the early morning hours of Sunday trying to figure out what caused a massive building, still under construction, to burst in to flames."
Note: And the day prior, two apartment buildings under construction were destroyed by a mammoth fire at 2 AM in Williston (North Dakota), as mentioned in the 2013-12-13 update. And 3 days before that, a home under construction went up in flames at 3:20 AM on Lakeside Drive in coastal Surfside Beach (South Carolina), as mentioned in the 2013-12-10 update. Buildings under construction are inherently more vulnerable to the atmospheric hydrogen sulfide and methane problem than completed and well-insulated buildings, so it's a race against time now, to complete construction before buildings burn up.
The Federation Tower caught fire while it was under construction too, last year, in Moscow (Russia), as mentioned in the 2012-04-02 update. The new World Trade Center building in coastal New York City (New York) caught fire at the under construction area at the top, as mentioned in the 2012-06-02 update. A subbasement fire also hit the World Trade Center site during construction, as mentioned in the 2012-12-26 update. All of this has been going on for quite a while now, as have the other problems, like animals and people dropping dead, 'electrical' fires, parked vehicles spontaneously igniting, homes and businesses exploding and burning, etc. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any hydrogen sulfide or methane in the air above closer to the ground...
2013-12-14 - Home under construction destroyed by fire at 2 AM in Layton (Utah):
Note: That's about 6 miles east (downwind) of the Great Salt Lake...

2013-12-15 - Car bursts into flame at Marquesa Plaza in coastal Naples (Florida), hydrogen sulfide detected in nearby building:
Quote: "'It actually wasn’t a gas leak,' fire department spokesman Jerry Sanford said later. 'It was just an accumulation of some kind of smell. TECO came in and took reading and agree it was a sewer gas build up.' As one of the fire engines was leaving the scene Monday, firefighters stopped to help the driver of a car that had overheated in the same plaza. Smoke could be seen billowing from under the car’s hood as the firetruck’s lights flashed."
Note: Sewer gas is one of the more common names for hydrogen sulfide. Naples is on Florida's Gulf Coast, directly downwind of the Gulf of Mexico, and the first area that will get hit by hydrogen sulfide blowing in off the Gulf of Mexico. And exactly as I have mentioned, people ARE confusing the smell of mercaptan (added to natural gas so it has any smell at all) with the smell of hydrogen sulfide.
So, coastal area on the Gulf Coast, car starts burning, hydrogen sulfide detected nearby. This explains all the dead people being mysteriously found in canals and swimming pools and the like in Florida too, as well as the many dead animals: hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas and it will settle into the same places that water does. It's also water-soluble, so once it's in the water, you might get poisoned that way too.
It's also no coincidence that this guy's car started burning while hydrogen sulfide was nearby, seeing as hydrogen sulfide is extremely flammable, and it is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper (like battery cables and other vehicle wiring), and it's reactive with rusty iron/steel too, common to all vehicles that haven't just rolled off the assembly line...

2013-12-16 - Underground electrical fire erupts in coastal Manhattan (New York):
Quote: "Manhattan *75-0861* 231 E 51 St off 3rd ave. All Hands going to work, manhole fire with High CO levels up to 600 & 900ppm in adjacent bldgs."
2013-12-16 - Transformer explodes in North Bergen (New Jersey), 12,000 homes go dark:
Quote: "A bright white flash was observed near the scene, indicating an explosion. PSEG said two substations went 'offline' and caused the outages. The organization was seeking to find the reason as of Monday night. A similar outage was reported last week in the same area."
Quote: "It's the third time in about two weeks that the area has seen a major outage."
2013-12-16 - Transformer bursts into flame in Batavia (New York), hundreds of homes go dark:
2013-12-16 - Electrical explosion fills home with smoke in Albert Lea (Minnesota):
Quote: "Albert Lea firefighters responded to a reported electrical explosion at 1009 St. John Ave. at 5:41 p.m. Monday. The house was reportedly filling up with smoke when authorities were called."
Note: Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper. That's the reason for many of the parked non-running vehicles spontaneously igniting, although hydrogen sulfide is also reactive with rusty iron/steel, so that's probably the cause of some of those fires too. Since our electrical infrastructure is entirely based on electrified copper, that means our electrical infrastructure is going to burn, and that's what is happening. That's why the gubment has been training for a mass-grid-failure scenario. Solar flares or EMPs aren't necessary to bring down the grid; an atmospheric problem will be plenty sufficient...

2013-12-17 - Apartment building explodes, burns and collapses at 2:45 AM in Birmingham (Alabama), 1 killed, 8 injured:
Quote: "A five-foot pile of rubble is all that remains of the two-story building, which had five bedrooms in each unit."
Quote: "Approximately ten people lived in units 79 and 80. Everyone from unit 79 was able to escape. Birmingham Fire Chief C.W. Mardis said they had to crawl through fire and debris to get to the street to safety."
2013-12-17 - Home destroyed by explosion and fire in Azle (Texas), nobody home:
Note: Azle is located on the shore of Eagle Mountain Lake...
2013-12-17 - Home damaged by explosion at 2 AM in coastal Marine Park, Brooklyn (New York):
2013-12-17 - Former university building explodes and burns at 6 AM in Urbana (Illinois):

2013-12-18 - Disturbing number of corpses being found in rivers in Mwea (Kenya):
Quote: "The rate at which decomposed bodies are being recovered from rivers in Kirinyaga county is worrying, police have said. Mwea East police boss Apollo Onyonyi yesterday said that they have recovered more than 100 bodies from Rupingazi and Nyamindi rivers. He said the bodies are suspected to have originated from Gichugu constituency and float downstream to Mwea. Onyonyi said the bodies have no visible marks to suggest foul play and are difficult to identify."
Note: Hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas and it will flow downhill, ending up in the same places that water does, like rivers. So these corpses are probably people who have gone to the river to fish or bathe or whatever, then they get a whiff, lose consciousness, fall into the water and breathe water until dead, then float downstream until found...

2013-12-19 - Mysterious explosions and flashes of light reported in Montgomery County (Kentucky):
Quote: "Strange noises and flashes of light are what hundreds of people say they saw and heard Wednesday night in Montgomery County. The Montgomery County dispatch says they got a few hundred calls from people reporting hearing several loud noises, and some people reported seeing flashes of lights. Local gas companies did not report any ruptured lines."
Note: These mysterious explosions, often accompanied by flashes of light, really started ramping up a couple of years ago, right around the time when methane began gushing into the atmosphere and HazMat events and events involving hydrogen sulfide or 'rotten egg' odors began escalating. That's no coincidence. These explosions are highly likely caused by atmospheric methane and/or hydrogen sulfide finding an ignition source and detonating. Eventually these explosions may rival the power of the fission explosion that destroyed Hiroshima, but minus any radiation, unless an explosion takes out a nuclear plant, many of which are located on coastlines and all of which are near bodies of water for cooling. In that case, we'd get radiation too...

2013-12-20 - Explosion and fire ignite man at 6:23 AM as he gases up at gas station in Danbury (Connecticut), 1 injured:
Quote: "An unidentified 60-year-old man from Danbury suffered extensive burns 'over most of his body' when an explosion occurred around 6:20 a.m. as he pumped gas into his vehicle..."
Quote: "Police told News 8 the man was at the gas pump when a fireball erupted."
Note: This sounds VERY MUCH like the work of the Ghostly Match. And two days prior, a mother and her young son were incinerated at a gas station in Mehu (India), as mentioned in the 2013-12-18 update. I mentioned refueling specifically because of events like these. Numerous boats have exploded and burned in the last year while refueling too; it's the same problem, and you'll never see it coming until it's too late. Might be worth paying extra for full service...

2013-12-21 - Underground electrical fire erupts in the Mission District in coastal San Francisco (California):
2013-12-21 - Transformer bursts into flame, ignites home, in Mishawaka (Indiana):
Note: More grid infrastructure igniting...

2013-12-22 - Underground electrical fire erupts in Times Square in coastal Manhattan (New York), hotel evacuated:
Quote: "The hotel lost power because of a nearby manhole fire, officials said."
2013-12-22 - Underground electrical fire breaks out in Belmont (Massachusetts):
2013-12-22 - Transformer explodes and burns at Walmart on Clearbrook Village Lane in Roanoke (Virginia), store evacuated:
2013-12-22 - Transformer bursts into flame at Arkema plant in Piffard (New York):
Note: Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, thus all the underground electrical fires and explosions, the 'electrical fires' in vehicles (whether running or not), etc. An EMP or solar flare is not necessary to take out the electrical grid. Atmospheric contamination is already detrimentally affecting our electrical infrastructure and as the atmospheric contamination problem intensifies, this problem is going to get much worse...

2013-12-23 - Three semi tractors and a garbage truck destroyed by fire at 6:32 AM while parked at business near Hagerstown (Maryland):
Quote: "The three damaged trucks were tractor sections of tractor-trailer rigs, said firefighter Kirk Mongan of the Longmeadow Volunteer Fire Co. The four vehicles were parked about 3 to 4 feet apart, Mongan said."
Note: People still park vehicles next to other vehicles?!
2013-12-23 - Two tow trucks, pickup truck and 3 cars destroyed by fire while parked at business in coastal Branford (Connecticut):
Quote: "Chief Ahern said the fire ignited at about 5:30 p.m. and rapidly leaped from one vehicle to the next, seriously damaging all of them. No one was hurt. 'The main fire started in one of their tow trucks,' the chief said in an interview. 'Then it spread to another tow truck and then to a pick-up truck and then to three other cars.' At this juncture damage is estimated at more than $150,000, he said."
Note: This business is about 500 feet from the ocean...
2013-12-23 - Three trucks destroyed by fire while parked in storage yard in Chandler (Arizona):
2013-12-23 - RV bursts into flame at 4:46 AM while parked at residence on Pine Valley Drive in Pie Creek (Australia):
2013-12-23 - Car bursts into flame while parked at police station in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia):
Quote: "The car was parked in an open area in the station along with other recovered missing cars."
2013-12-23 - Car bursts into flame while parked at store in coastal Paignton (Britain):
2013-12-23 - Car bursts into flame while parked at sports field in coastal Aberdeen (Scotland):
Note: All of the above vehicles were parked, not running. Vehicles need not be running to spontaneously combust now. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, like battery cables and other wiring in vehicles. It's also reactive with rusty iron/steel, which all vehicles have unless they've just rolled off the assembly line. As a consequence, vehicles are now randomly-igniting firebombs that can go off at any time. Many people are losing their homes - and sometimes their lives - when their vehicle bursts into flame inside a garage or in a driveway. Park a vehicle near your residence (or near anything you don't want to see destroyed, like other vehicles) at your own risk...

2013-12-24 - Mysterious explosion shakes homes in the Greater Toronto Area (Canada):
Quote: "Even more mysterious is that some people reported hearing booms at other times during the day as well, ranging from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Christmas morning. The United States Geological Service (USGS) didn’t record any seismic event in Ontario yesterday, and there were no reports to the American Meteor Society."
Note: Mysterious explosions and flashes of light were just reported in Montgomery County (Kentucky) too, as mentioned in the 2013-12-19 update. These mysterious explosions, sometimes accompanied by flashes of light, are likely caused by atmospheric methane and hydrogen sulfide finding an ignition source and detonating. These neighborhood-shaking or city-shaking explosions really started increasing in frequency a couple of years ago, around the time that methane began pluming into the atmosphere in large amounts in multiple areas around the planet. Also around that time is when hydrogen sulfide events began escalating, including unexplained 'odor' events, reports of 'rotten egg' odors, unexplained HazMat events, mass-sickening events, etc. That's not a coincidence. Eventually these atmospheric explosions may rival those caused by the detonation of small nuclear bombs, like the one that destroyed Hiroshima, but minus the radiation...

2013-12-25 - Beachgoers attacked by carnivorous palometa in Rosario (Argentina), 70 people injured:
Quote: "A swarm of biting fish injured more than 70 people who were bathing at a popular beach in Argentina on Christmas, a medical official said on Thursday. A seven-year-old girl had her finger partially amputated and dozens more suffered bite wounds on their extremities from the fish, a relative of the piranha called 'palometas,' said Federico Cornier, the director of emergency services in the city of Rosario."
Quote: "'This is not normal,' Cornier said on television. 'It's normal for there to be an isolated bite or injury, but the magnitude in this case was great ... this is an exceptional event.' The attack happened off the popular beaches of the Parana River near Rosario, 300 kilometers (186 miles) north of Buenos Aires, where many Argentines were seeking relief from a heat wave over the holiday."
Quote: "An attack by a school of carnivorous fish has injured 70 people bathing in an Argentine river, including seven children who lost parts of their fingers or toes."
Note: Sounds like a scene from the B-movie classic 'Piranha'. From the full hypothesis: "Predators will attempt to adapt to the changes in the biosphere and may turn to our pets or to us as an alternate source of nutrition."

2013-12-26 - 'Strange odor' hits hamlet of Plainview in the Town of Oyster Bay, on Long Island (New York), blamed on landfill:
Quote: "Officials are reporting complaints of a methane gas smell."
Quote: "Prior to realizing there was a widespread odor in Plainview I thought one of my parents was making hard boiled eggs or something at 10:00 last night, because that's the time I started to smell the horrible stench."
Note: Derp. Methane is odorless, so nobody was smelling methane. That odor was very likely hydrogen sulfide and they may be right about the cause being the landfill, as landfills are traditional sources of hydrogen sulfide (and methane). But then again, this is a coastal area, so hydrogen sulfide may be blowing in off the ocean too. In June 2013, the City of Roxbury (New Jersey) began drawing up evacuation plans because of hydrogen sulfide from a nearby landfill, as mentioned in the 2013-06-14 update. A rotten egg odor was wafting in from the ocean in Quincy (Massachusetts), as mentioned in the 2013-05-09 update. The Inner Harbor suddenly changed color to milky-white-green in coastal Baltimore, with a sulfur odor smelled, and all the fish there were found dead, as mentioned in the 2013-07-18 update. Regardless of the source, residents should be quite concerned, because hydrogen sulfide is a gas-chamber-quality poison gas. If people there start coming down with 'flu-like' illnesses, start experiencing nosebleeds, weird skin rashes, headaches, dizziness, etc, then they're being poisoned...

2013-12-27 - Passenger train bursts into flame at 3:45 AM in Andhra Pradesh (India), at least 26 killed:
2013-12-27 - Passenger train bursts into flame in coastal Wandurawa on the island of Sri Lanka, 3 killed, 1 injured:
Note: It wasn't the fire that killed the people in the Sri Lanka event, at least not directly. Passengers panicked from the fire and jumped off the train, and 4 of them got hit by another train. How bad does your luck have to be to jump from a burning train and then get hit by another train?! A train engine recently burst into flame at 3:30 AM along the Champlain Canal near Kingsbury (New York) too, as mentioned in the 2013-12-21 update. Train fires are on the rise...

2013-12-28 - Auto salvage yard erupts in flame, fire gets huge, in Oak Ridge (New Jersey):
Quote: "Jefferson Township Police Capt. Eric Wilsusen said about 2,000 to 3,000 storage cars were located on the facility, and a couple of tire piles. About 75 percent of the junkyard caught fire, he said. Budd Lake Fire Chief Robert Sheard posted a video of the aftermath of the fire on his Facebook page at about noon Sunday. A yard full of charred cars and flames could be seen in the video."
Note: Wow, if my math is correct, that was at least 1500 vehicles burning. Oak Ridge is less than 1 mile east (downwind) of Oak Ridge Reservoir. From the full hypothesis: "Metal-related businesses will be hit hard, including salvage yards and metal recycling centers."

2013-12-29 - Mysterious explosion shakes homes and alarms residents in coastal Corpus Christi (Texas):
Quote: "Reports of the boom stretch from the Rodd Field and Yorktown area to downtown and many places in between. But after an extensive search of the area, no evidence of an explosion or fire was ever found. No one knows for sure where the boom came from or what caused it."
Note: As the atmosphere has become increasingly contaminated by flammable methane and hydrogen sulfide, these mysterious explosions have been increasing in frequency. Sometimes they are accompanied by a 'flash of light'. Eventually these explosions may rival the force of the small nuclear explosion that destroyed Hiroshima, but minus the radiation. I imagine that once these explosions start wiping out large chunks of cities, the next story will be, obviously, 'terr'rists did it!' What else are they gonna say? The truth? Wouldn't count on that. Corpus Christi is right on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Another mysterious explosion shook homes in Toronto (Canada) the other day, as mentioned in the 2013-12-24 update. Toronto is located on the shore of Lake Ontario. An outdoor explosion just injured several people at a beachside resort in the Canary Islands, as mentioned in the 2013-12-28 update. There have been a great many of these mysterious explosions now...

2013-12-30 - Grain train derails, oil train hits it, massive explosions and fire ensue, near Casselton (North Dakota), town evacuated:
Quote: "After a partial, precautionary evacuation of about 300 residents, shifting winds early in the evening prompted the Cass County Sheriff's Office to recommend that the entire town of 2,400 people leave, along with anyone within a 5-mile radius, the Fargo-based Inforum newspaper reported."
Quote: "Smoke could be seen 15 miles away. Residents reported hearing at least six explosions. 'I looked out the window and all of a sudden the train car tipped over and the whole thing was engulfed in flames and it just exploded,' said 13-year-old Hannah Linnard, who was at her friend's house about half a mile from the derailment."

Note: So in just two days, that was two transformer fires, an odor investigation, 10 illness calls, 6 calls about difficulty breathing, 5 people having seizures, 3 people having heart attacks, and 4 people losing consciousness. And look at the timing on some of the sequences, like two people having seizures within one minute, two heart attacks within 19 minutes, two people losing consciousness within 3 minutes, etc. Columbus isn't a gigantic city either; it's a town with just 44,000 people. This town probably isn't even exceptional. I bet if I looked, I would find cities all over experiencing these same things, especially near coasts and lakes and in valleys and the like. As the atmospheric contamination intensifies, this can only get worse...
