2014 - DEC - Other Stories

2014-12-31 - Methane plume 2500 square miles in size seen over the US Southwest:

2014-12-31 - People stampede at riverfront in coastal Shanghai (China), 35 killed, 43 injured:

2014-12-31 - Couch's Kingbird seen in New York State:

Note: I saw one of these in my backyard about a month ago, and I was just amazed to see such a brilliantly yellow bird in St. Louis. At the time I had no idea what it was but I thought it looked sort of tropical and totally out of place. Now I see I wasn't too far off - not quite tropical, but they live in southern Texas and Louisiana. To get to New York, they might have flown through Missouri, so I may have seen one of the ones making that journey to New York...

2014-12-31 - Eurasian kestrel seen in Nova Scotia (Canada):

2014-12-30 - Snowstorm strands motorists in Southern California:

2014-12-29 - Volcano Hunga Ha'apai erupts on new island near coastal Nuku'alofa (Tonga):

Quote: "A large volcanic eruption is taking place near Tonga's capital's Nuku'alofa, sending ash and steam into the sky. It is the same volcano which erupted out of the Pacific Ocean, 63 kilometres north of Nuku'alofa in 2009, creating an island. New Zealand's Metservice has yet to issue any aviation warning in the region, despite the large plume of ash. Known as the Hunga Ha'apai volcano, Matangi Tonga says it may have been erupting for more than a week."

Note: A new volcanic island has formed in Japan's waters and one formed near Pakistan too, that I recall offhand. There are 3 million volcanoes on the planet. If you see 100 volcanoes erupting on land, you can be sure that there are 200 more erupting in the oceans too, where the crust is thinnest. Those are the real danger, the subsurface volcanoes, because the heat is helping melt the methane clathrate deposits and creating more ideal conditions for the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide...

2014-12-29 - Volcano Sheveluch erupts on the Kamchatka Peninsula (Russia):

Quote: "'The volcano has ejected cinders to the altitude of 6,000 meters above sea level,' the source said. The aviation authorities have assigned the orange level of aviation risks to the eruption, which means that the volcanic particles ejected from the Sheveluch's crater pose a potential menace for all types of aircraft and can put out the engines of airliners and helicopters our of operation."

2014-12-29 - Mt. Etna belches out lava and ash in Italy:

Note: MISA Theory keeps on chugging away. Bardarbunga is still erupting and spewing huge quantities of volcanic-winter-inducing SO2 into the atmosphere in Iceland and lava is still moving toward the town of Pahoa in Hawaii too...

2014-12-29 - HazMat event, several people sicken and get dizzy at Jewish Community Center in Scottsdale (Arizona), nothing found:

Quote: "The building was evacuated and a haz-mat team from Scottsdale, Phoenix, and Tempe Fire investigated the scene. Authorities have not said what caused the workers to be sick, but they found nothing unusual."

Note: Well, at least they didn't strip naked and start chewing on each others' faces, so that's a plus!

2014-12-29 - Tropical Storm Jangmi roars into the Philippine Islands, 29 killed, 10 missing:

2014-12-29 - Bureau of Land Management looking for firefighters for the coming fire season:

Quote: "Applicants must be U.S. citizens 18 years of age or older, and must complete a physical examination, drug screening and a timed three-mile hike with a 45-pound pack."

2014-12-28 - Goose from Eurasia somehow ends up in Oregon:

2014-12-28 - Cold snap hits Southern California, frost advisories issued for parts of Los Angeles and Ventura counties:

2014-12-28 - Google testing their own fully-functional driverless car:

2014-12-27 - Volcano Popocatepetl erupts, blows ash and gas 3.5 kilometers into the air, near Mexico City (Mexico):

2014-12-27 - 15,000 cars trapped on roads as heavy snow blankets the French Alps (France), 1 killed:

Quote: "Heavy snowfall in the French Alps has left around 15,000 drivers stranded, prompting officials to open emergency shelters and urge travellers to stay home. The snow hit as a rush of holidaymakers were heading to and leaving from ski resorts in the Savoie region in south-eastern France, where authorities set up shelters in at least 12 towns. The snow and freezing rain also caused the death of a 27-year-old man, whose car slid into a ravine in the Belledonne mountain range."

2014-12-27 - 25-foot-high waves (8 meters) slam into coastal Cape Town (South Africa):

Quote: "'Eight metre wave heights occurred during early hours of the morning'. Flood damage to roads, campsites and houses were also reported in various areas, with holidaymakers at some campsites being evacuated to higher ground."

Note: That's huge. I wonder what caused that. Did a big methane bubble explode from the ocean floor off the coast? Was there a volcanic eruption in the ocean, like the ones that have created several new islands in the last year or two?

2014-12-26 - Volcanoes Fuego and Santa Maria belch ash into the air in Guatemala, air travel warnings issued:

2014-12-26 - Brawls and fights break out at the Navy Pier in Chicago (Illinois), 1 injured, several arrested:

2014-12-26 - Flamingos fly south for the winter and end up in SIBERIA:

Note: 'I told you to ask for directions, honey!'

2014-12-26 - SpaceX to attempt landing rocket on floating barge:

2014-12-25 - Blizzard hits Moscow (Russia), airports and traffic disrupted:

Note: They just can't get a break in Moscow. If it isn't a subway exploding (mentioned in the 2014-07-19 update), or a giant cloud of hydrogen sulfide hitting the city (mentioned in the 2014-11-10 update), it's a blizzard. Good luck, comrades!

2014-12-25 - Massive flooding hits four states in Malaysia, 100,000 people evacuated:

2014-12-25 - Justin Bieber gets a private jet for Christmas:

Note: Maybe someone has noticed how many planes have been coming down smoking or burning or just plain crashing out of the sky, and they want to get rid of the Bieb!

2014-12-24 - Methane now spewing from the seabed off the coast of the West Yamal Peninsula (Russia):

Quote: "Yamal Peninsula in Siberia has recently become world famous. Spectacular sinkholes, appeared as out of nowhere in the permafrost of the area, sparking the speculations of significant release of greenhouse gas methane into the atmosphere. What is less known, is that there is a lot of greenhouse gas methane released from the seabed offshore the West Yamal Peninsula. Gas is released in an area of at least 7500 m2, with gas flares extending up to 25 meters in the water column."

Note: So here's yet another area in a sea or ocean spewing methane as the methane clathrate deposits around the world continue to dissociate. I bet we see more of those giant explosively-formed holes in the ground too, and not just on the Yamal Peninsula. And once methane starts saturating bodies of water, we may see the seas and oceans themselves on fire, larger-scale versions of the flammable tapwater people have been noticing around the world in the last coupla-three years. And already there's been one river that caught on fire, in coastal Wenzhou (China), in March, mentioned in the 2014-03-08 update. Both methane and hydogen sulfide are water-soluble, and the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that emit hydrogen sulfide eat both biomatter and methane, so the more methane around, the more food there will be available for them...

2014-12-24 - 'Rotten egg' odor blows through Lander (Wyoming):

Note: Natural gas is odorless so they add methyl mercaptan to it, which smells like 'rotten eggs'. But so does hydrogen sulfide in low concentrations, so people are sometimes confusing the two...

2014-12-24 - Twelve endangered vultures flee the cold in Nepal, Bhutan and India, collapse to the ground, rescued:

2014-12-24 - Two endangered Kemp’s ridley turtles found on the coast in Britain, 5000 miles from home:

2014-12-24 - Kangaroo punches drone out of the air in the Hunter Valley (Australia):

Quote: "A Press Association video on YouTube shows a drone flying near a group of kangaroos in Hunter Valley, Australia. One kangaroo, unimpressed by the flying intruder, leaps up and punches the drone, which plunges to the ground."

Note: 'We're gonna need a bigger drone.'

2014-12-24 - Aircraft carrier featured in the movie 'Top Gun' to be sold for one cent:

2014-12-23 - Warming oceans causing severe coral bleaching from Hawaii to the Marshall Islands:

Quote: "Record warming of ocean water in the north Pacific has caused unprecedented coral bleaching from Hawaii to the Northern Mariana Islands, say scientists in the United States and the Marshall Islands. 'The worst coral bleaching event ever recorded for the Marshall Islands has been occurring since mid-September,' Dr. Karl Fellenius, the Marshall Islands coastal management extension agent in Majuro, said Friday."

2014-12-23 - Oil leaks into the Guaracara River on the island of Trinidad, sulfur smell, people sickening:

Quote: "Already one resident, Glenis Quashie-Dalrymple, had to seek medical treatment yesterday for respiratory problems she said was caused by fumes from the oil-covered river which flows behind her Silk Cotton Street, Marabella, home. She said over the weekend a high sulphuric smell was evident in the neighbourhood and her two younger children - ages seven and nine - complained of feeling unwell. 'In the night they would be coughing but they do not have any runny nose or fever. For the last two days we notice a high sulphur smell and my son was vomiting,' she said."

2014-12-23 - Intense cold wave hits Uttar Pradesh (India), at least 31 people killed:

2014-12-23 - Summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea under Blizzard Watch on the Big Island (Hawaii):

2014-12-23 - Hokua Waterfall freezes on the Yellow River (China):

2014-12-23 - Largest airport solar farm in the world opens at Indianapolis International Airport in Indianapolis (Indiana):

2014-12-22 - Cook Nuclear Plant leaks 2000 gallons of oil into Lake Michigan near Bridgman (Michigan):

2014-12-22 - New fish discovered at depth of 26,700 feet in the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean:

2014-12-21 - Two billion-dollar blimps on the East Coast tasked with identifying 'Air Breathing Threats':

Note: Mentioned these blimps in the last week, but hadn't seen that the #1 entry on the list of primary missions for these blimps is detection of 'Air Breathing Threats'. All I'd seen them mention was that it would help detect cruise missiles. Well, we have satellites for that, good enough to pick out license plate numbers, worldwide, so something with limited range for that purpose, like these blimps, didn't make much sense, especially considering the cost. But for air breathing threats, it does make sense, especially with that 2.5 gigaton methane clathrate deposit dissociating off the East Coast...

2014-12-21 - Volcano Lopevi erupts on Lopevi Island (Vanuatu):

2014-12-21 - Pilot collapses and loses consciousness at the wheel of ship in the Western Scheldt (Netherlands):

Quote: "The KNRM Breskens and a Belgian Sea King helicopter were alerted in the morning of Dec 21, 2014, due to a medical evacuation on the Wester Scheldt off Wielingen. The pilot of the 'Bomar Juno' had collapsed and become unconscious."

2014-12-21 - Drone spotted over nuclear facility in Belgium, 20 more drones spotted at nuclear facilities in France:

Quote: "The mystery appearance by an unmanned aircraft, on which Belgian authorities refused to provide much detail, resembles a spate of similar drone sightings over nuclear plants in neighbouring France this autumn. Around 20 unidentified drones have been spotted over nuclear plants since October throughout France."

2014-12-20 - Boy, 17, goes out on canoe, goes missing, on the Susquehanna River near Hoak Island (Pennsylvania):

2014-12-19 - Residents sickening from hydrogen sulfide emissions from landfills in coastal Escambia County (Florida):

Quote: "Residents of the Wedgewood community complain that hydrogen sulfide coming from the nearby landfill has been causing abnormally high rates of respiratory illness and cancer in the area. Although the Florida Department of Environmental Protection has confirmed that high levels of hydrogen sulfide can cause eye and respiratory irritation, there is still debate over if of how much of a health concern the landfill is for residents."

2014-12-19 - Magnitude 5.7 earthquake shakes Basse-Terre island on the Guadeloupe Archipelago in the Antilles (France):

2014-12-19 - First mountain lion in 150 years seen in Kentucky, in Bourbon County, promptly killed:

Note: I see why they haven't been around for 150 years!

2014-12-18 - Mount Gamalama erupts, spews column of ash into the sky, in North Maluku Province (Indonesia), airport closed:

Quote: "Mount Gamalama in North Maluku province of Indonesia erupted Thursday night, forcing the authorities to close an airport and issue warnings to planes, officials said here on Friday. The volcano located near Ternate city spewed a column of ash to the sky, Nia Hairani, an official from the national volcanology agency, told Xinhua by phone. An evacuation zone of 3.5 km has been ordered, Hairani said."

2014-12-18 - Large 15-foot python found outside restaurant on the Isle of Capri in Collier County (Florida):

Quote: "We figure the snake was 15 feet long, and the FWC guy said he was probably shy of 200 pounds..."

2014-12-17 - Unknown illness hits village in Kazakhstan, people sleep for days, hallucinations, memory loss, dizziness, nausea:

Quote: "A mysterious sleeping illness has fallen on the residents of a remote Kazakhstan village which caused sufferers to sleep for days at a time. For the past four years, residents in the village of Kalachi have been afflicted by the disorder, which also causes dizziness, nausea, hallucinations and memory loss. So far more than 100 of the town's 600 residents have experienced the illness, the Russian Times reports. 'I'm weak, my legs feel heavy, as if I'm wearing a hundred pairs of boots, and my head is spinning,' one sufferer said. Other patients claim they behave 'like they're drunk' and that it's difficult to call for help as 'your tongue gets twisted'."

Quote: "Classified as an encephalopathy of unclear origin - the highfalutin term for a weird brain disorder we can't figure out - villagers who do not simply keel over while moving or working report feeling weakness, dizziness, and memory and motor control loss. At least two children have reported hallucinations as well: Misha Plyukhin saw flying horses and light bulbs, his mother with eight eyes and a trunk, and snakes and worms in his bed, trying to eat his arms; Rudolf Boyarinos cannot remember his visions, but four people had to calm and subdue him as he screamed 'monsters!' The sleep is so deep that some locals fear an old man they assumed was dead could have been buried alive."

Note: That sounds very much like hydrogen sulfide poisoning. The memory loss and the difficulty speaking (speech center of the brain) and probably the hallucinations too - that's brain damage, indicative of a neurotoxin.

It was an event in Kazakhstan in 2010 that got me started waking up to the threat - 12,000 endangered saiga antelope dropped dead on May 27 in 2010 in Kazakhstan. They all died in the same area. Since they're grazers, that doesn't happen due to disease - they'd have been scattered over a wide area as the weakest died and then the next weakest and so on, as they moved. So whatever killed them did so very quickly and was 100% fatal. There aren't a lot of things can insta-kill a huge herd of 12,000 antelope, but a cloud of hydrogen sulfide is one thing that can. Can't really think of anything else that could do that. The thousands of people who were recently hit by a cloud of 'toxic gas of unknown origin' and fled their homes puking in the wee hours in coastal Rayong (Indonesia) almost had the same thing happen to them, mentioned in the 2014-06-08 update...

2014-12-17 - Mysterious scary-looking creature found on beach in Santa Barbara (California):

Note: Could be a genetic chimera, a blending of two species, though what two species I have no idea. Lizard-pig? Lizard-dog? Dog-pig?

2014-12-17 - US Navy develops underwater 'shark drone':

Quote: "GhostSwimmer is 5 feet long and weighs almost 100 pounds. It can operate in water depths from 10 inches to 300 feet, and is designed to operate autonomously for long periods of time, according to the Navy."

2014-12-17 - US military readies two giant billion-dollar blimps for deployment on the East Coast:

Quote: "The giant airships, known as the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System, or JLENS within the Pentagon, will be able to scan the oceans and coastline in a 340-mile radius, or from Norfolk, Va., to Boston."

2014-12-16 - Greenland ice sheet may be melting faster than once thought possible:

Note: And as that mass moves to the oceans, where the plates are thinnest, we'll see more oceanic and coastal earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, as predicted by MISA Theory in 2010 and corroborated by one of the finest geology teams on the planet two years later. The quakes will shake up the methane clathrates and hasten the release of methane, and the volcanic eruptions will melt the clathrates and heat the waters, enhancing the habitat for the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that emit hydrogen sulfide, and so on - a self-reinforcing feedback loop that is not only unstoppable but also unsurvivable, at least on the surface of the Earth. 2013 was already the record-setting year in recorded history in terms of number of volcanic eruptions, but we'll see many more as the escalation intensifies, possibly involving villages, towns or cities being destroyed...

2014-12-16 - Volcano Pico do Fogo erupts, destroys two villages, biggest eruption in decades, in coastal Cape Verde:

Quote: "The biggest eruption of Cape Verde volcano Pico do Fogo in decades has destroyed two villages and threatens a forest reserve Tuesday, officials said. Some 1,500 people were forced to abandon their homes before the lava flow reached the villages of Portela and Bangeira on Fogo island in the Atlantic archipelago, fire brigade chief Arlindo Lima said late Monday on national radio."

2014-12-16 - Activity rising at Volcano Tokachidake (Japan), alert level raised:

2014-12-15 - Passenger sickens on plane, plane returns to coastal London (Britain):

2014-12-15 - Large number of people sicken at Maritime Academy in Toledo (Ohio), school closed:

2014-12-15 - Magnitude 3.0 earthquake rattles Caldwell County (North Carolina):

Quote: "Nearby resident Lydia Stewart said the shaking lasted around eight or nine seconds. She said she, along with her neighbors, heard two 'enormous explosive booms.' The earthquake was reported early on Monday morning, but Stewart says she heard a 'boom' around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday."

Note: So the explosion heard Sunday night was obviously not the quake on Monday morning...

2014-12-15 - Methane and CO2 levels in the atmosphere keep on rising:

2014-12-14 - Foul stench blows over coastal Santa Rosa (Florida):

Quote: "Area residents are complaining on social media about a strange smell that stretches from Pace to Gulf Breeze and the beaches. But local officials can't confirm what the smell is or where it's coming from."

Note: Also see the several people found dead on coasts in Florida on this day. In June this year, thousands of people fled their homes puking in the middle of the night from 'toxic gas of unknown origin' in coastal Rayong (Thailand), mentioned in the 2014-06-08 update. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see the same thing (or worse) happen any day now in Florida or California or Britain or Australia or Ireland or Scotland or Portugal or Spain or Norway or India or pretty much anywhere near a coast...

2014-12-14 - Boy, 13, jumps in water, doesn't resurface, at coastal Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (Hawaii):

2014-12-14 - China to survey underground pipelines in the coming year:

2014-12-13 - Lava flow continues advancing in the Pahoa area in Hawaii:

2014-12-12 - Unknown and unusually strong predator bites head off a deer in Copenhagen (Denmark)

Quote: "A deer calf was found in the forest park Jægersborg Dyrehave with its head bitten off and the Danish Nature Agency (Naturstyrelsen) says that only 'an unusually large and strong dog, or a wolf' could have bitten the head off in that fashion."

Quote: "The deer's head has not been found and Christensen said the bite was 'exceptionally violent'. 'The animal bit through the neck bones, so the head was quite simply bitten off,' he told BT."

Note: Maybe it's something new, something not seen before...

2014-12-12 - Rare tornado hits Los Angeles (California):

Note: Not exactly Tornado Alley there. I should know - *I* am in Tornado Alley. Urk!

2014-12-12 - Vicious storm and extreme flooding hit Sao Paulo (Brazil):

2014-12-11 - Cold wave hits Thailand, disaster declared in three provinces:

Quote: "The Interior Ministry has declared three provinces in the upper part of Thailand emergency disaster-hit zones due to the cold weather. The Deputy Minister of the Interior Sutee Markboon revealed that the three provinces are Mae Hong Son and Chiang Mai in the North and Loei in the Northeast. The announcement takes effect in 10 districts, 45 sub districts and 512 villages in total."

2014-12-11 - Volcano Ubinas shows signs of increasing unrest in Peru:

2014-12-11 - Multi-agency HazMat drill conducted in coastal St. Johns County (Florida):

Note: With all the people who've been dropping dead in Florida, and considering the fact that Florida is downwind of the Gulf of Mexico, North America's sewer, this seems like a good idea...

2014-12-10 - Methane hydrate deposits now dissociating off the US Northwest Coast:

Quote: "Researchers probe the oceans off the west coast and see signs of the meltdown of icy methane similar in size to the BP oil spill..."

Note: It was just a matter of time. Methane is erupting from deposits all over the planet now. As time goes on, the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide will colonize the methane seeps and increasing amounts of that methane will be turned into hydrogen sulfide, so we'll end up first with large methane releases (occurring already) and as time goes on there will be increasing amounts of hydrogen sulfide bubbling up too. This is the ancient planetary extinction event that is upon us now and this is what killed off most life on the planet during the Permian-Triassic extinction event, also called 'The Great Dying'. As a consequence, the human race is going to evacuate the surface of the Earth, if not voluntarily (by relocating) then it will happen involuntarily (by dying), or some combination of the two...

2014-12-10 - Cruise ships dumped a billion gallons of sewage into the oceans in 2014:

Quote: "Cruise ships dumped more than a billion gallons of sewage into the ocean in 2014, much of it raw or poorly treated, an environmental group says."

Note: That's just great. A substantial amount of that sewage may now be turned into hydrogen sulfide by the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea in the oceans, which will then incinerate more of human civilization and kill more people and animals...

2014-12-10 - Catastrophic oil spill from oil tanker crash threatening endangered dolphins in the Sunderbans (Bangladesh):

Quote: "An oil spill from a crashed tanker in Bangladesh is threatening endangered dolphins in the vast Sundarbans delta, officials warned on Thursday (Dec 11), calling it an ecological 'catastrophe'. The tanker was carrying an estimated 357,000 litres (77,000 gallons) of oil when it sank in the Sundarbans' Shela river, home to rare Irrawaddy and Ganges dolphins, after colliding with another vessel on Tuesday."

2014-12-10 - Vicious storm batters Ireland and Scotland:

Quote: "Weather bombs battered the northern half of the UK today - causing winds of up to 144mph in the remotest area, cutting power from tens of thousands of homes, and creating travel chaos across land and sea."

2014-12-10 - Firefighter goes into cardiac arrest at scene of fire in Van Buren Township (Michigan), resuscitated:

2014-12-10 - Man, 19, falls off bridge and hits car, in Northampton (Britain), possible toppler, 1 injured:

2014-12-10 - US Navy tests new laser cannon in the Persian Gulf, 30-kilowatt weapon now fully functional:

Note: Pew pew!

2014-12-09 - Volcano Turrialba erupts, ash rains down at least 20 kilometers away, in Costa Rica:

Quote: "Monday evening, reports of falling ash at least 20 km from the volcano - in some cases, much farther - began to pour in on social media sites. Residents in many areas of the Central Valley, including the western San Jose suburb of Escazu, reported a strong smell of sulfur."

2014-12-09 - Quantum teleportation successful over optical fiber line at distance of 15.5 miles:

2014-12-08 - Mount Erebus erupts six times in Antarctica:

Quote: "There is no knowing if this will continue or was just a one off. It does show that gas is accumulating somewhere at depth and migrates to the lava lake as a big bubble where it bursts explosively sending volcanic bombs shooting above the lava lake and sometimes out onto the crater rim where people may be working."

2014-12-08 - Volcano Chiles rumbling, 20,000 earthquakes in a week, on the border of Ecuador and Colombia:

2014-12-08 - Magnitude 6.6 earthquake strikes off the coast of Panama, second in three days:

2014-12-08 - Mountain-sized asteroid discovered that comes near Earth every 3 years:

2014-12-08 - Red fire ants arrive in Port Botany, Sydney (Australia):

2014-12-07 - Woman, 48, sickens on cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico near Louisiana, kidney problems:

Quote: "The woman was reportedly unconscious and suffering from kidney related issues."

Note: From the full hypothesis: "Renal problems - e.g. problems with kidneys - will escalate, as is already happening with crop workers on the western coast of Central America."

2014-12-07 - Man, 59, sickens on cruise ship, heart problems, near coastal Tampa Bay (Florida):

2014-12-07 - Woman, 71, sickens on cruise ship near coastal Cape Hatteras (North Carolina):

2014-12-07 - Man, 38, goes fishing on kayak, goes missing, at Blackmans Lake (Washington):

Note: To go along with all the corpses being found in and near low-lying areas like bodies of water, people are sickening too, or going missing. (The missing people are almost always eventually found dead though.) It's probably best to avoid bodies of water at this point whenever possible, if you're one of those wanna-stay-alive kind of people. Four high school students went to take a bath and died in a canal in Bhubaneswar (India), mentioned in the 2014-10-22 update. A family of four went swimming and all of them died at Henry Hagg Lake (Oregon), mentioned in the 2014-08-25 update. More than 200 people sickened after swimming at Horseshoe Lake near Mount Saint Helens (Washington), mentioned in the 2014-07-16 update. More than a dozen people sickened after swimming in Blue Lake in Blue Lake Park (Oregon), also mentioned in the 2014-07-16 update. And so on and so on. I could go on for a very scarily long time here with all the unexplained piles of corpses and sickened people near or in bodies of water, but that's why there's a search feature - so I can be lazy!

2014-12-07 - HazMat event, noxious odor hits hotel in the wee hours, 19 sickened, thousands evacuated, in Rosemont (Illinois), blamed on chlorine:

Quote: "Nineteen people were transported to nearby hospitals after complaining of nausea, dizziness and other medical problems, according to the statement. All people inside the building were temporarily evacuated and sheltered at nearby facilities, including the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center."

Note: Rosemont is located on the banks of the Des Plaines River...

2014-12-07 - Magnitude 6.8 earthquake strikes off the coast near Panguna (Papua New Guinea):

2014-12-06 - Unknown odor sickens 16 people on passenger plane, vomiting and eye irritation, plane makes emergency landing in Rome (Italy):

Quote: "Medical assistance was requested for people suffering from red eyes and vomiting, with those affected having been checked by doctors at the airport before taken to a hospital near the Italian capital."

Quote: "Various news reports identified a foul odor in the cabin, which caused the domino effect of illness."

Quote: "All 14 crew members, including the four pilots, were affected, and the mysterious smell made two passengers ill as well, an airline spokeswoman told the network."

Note: An unknown odor just sickened 60 children in coastal Brooklyn (New York) the day prior too, mentioned in the 2014-12-05 update. From the full hypothesis: "There will be more unexplained HazMat events, often involving unusual odors. Eventually the entire populations of towns and cities will drop dead."

2014-12-06 - HazMat event, 2 people killed, 12 sickened, at mixed-use building in Passaic (New Jersey), blamed on carbon monoxide:

Quote: "Passaic Mayor Alex Blanco said at a news conference Saturday that police responded to a 911 call at about 1:30 p.m. and found the two dead on the second floor. He says the other 12 victims 'experienced confusion and were choking' as they tried to leave the mixed-use commercial building."

2014-12-06 - Eisenhower/Johnson Memorial Tunnel to get new fire alerting and suppression system along I-70 in Colorado:

2014-12-06 - 38-foot long humpback whale found dead in field in UTAH, no sign of any vehicle tracks:

Quote: "A few witnesses have reported seeing some strange flying object in the area over the last two days and the authorities have confirmed that the 911 operators have received a few dozen calls from all over the region reporting such sightings, but they refuse to link both events for the moment."

Note: Could only have gotten there by air, no vehicle or machinery tracks. Looooong way from the ocean...

2014-12-05 - Two-headed baby born in Atlanta (Georgia):

Quote: "Asa and Eli Hamby were born by C-section to Robin and Michael Hamby, of Ladonia, Ala. The boys, born at 37 weeks, share a torso, arms and legs, according to their parents. Because they share a heart and circulatory system, the boys will not be able to be separated."

Note: They sure try hard not to use the term 'two-headed baby', but they share a body, arms and legs. What DON'T they share? Heads! There have been a rising number of such incidents in recent years. That's from DNA/RNA damage being done to people from that high-UV white Sun we have now. It's also causing more incidents of albinism and skin lesions from UV poisoning on whales and dolphins and penguins and the like, which began in or before 2010. The less time you spend under that high-UV white Sun, the better off you're apt to be, and the lower the chance that your own DNA/RNA will be damaged. That white Sun also causes problems with melatonin production, which weakens your immune system and can cause sleep problems (insomnia), but you can take melatonin supplements to help compensate for those problems. This is another way we may go extinct, to go along with fires, explosions, poisoning, etc: we may eventually suffer so much damage to our DNA/RNA that we stop being able to give birth to normal human beings entirely. I'm not sure anyone will still be alive by then though. We'll see...

Note: He had his reasons for killing it, and it was perfectly legal. I wouldn't have killed it myself though; just too beautiful...

2014-12-04 - Magnitude 3.3 earthquake, biggest in 50 years, rattles coastal Melbourne (Australia):

Quote: "Mr Maldoni said today's quake was only the eighth to strike the Berwick and Pakenham area in the past 50 years. It was also the largest tremor to shake the area over that period, believed to have reached a depth of 10km, he said. 'It's very unusual for the area. Today's earthquake sits in a rather quiet area for seismological activity,' he said."

Quote: "In its 8 a.m. update, Phivolcs said it observed no steaming activity or crater glow Wednesday due to rain clouds covering the volcano's summit. But it said Mayon's alert status remains at Alert Level 3, meaning an eruption is possible at any time. More than 12,000 families were evacuated from their homes in Mayon's danger zone since mid-September, when Phivolcs raised the alert level at Mayon to 3."
