Event Update For 2015-08-14

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.

2015-08-14 - Chemical plant destroyed by explosion(s) and huge fire in Conroe (Texas), nobody there:

Quote: "CEO says the chemical supply facility was empty at the time..."

Note: Not that dissimilar to the chemical warehouse that exploded in coastal Tianjin (China), mentioned in the 2015-08-12 update, although the explosions weren't as big and nobody was at this place so nobody got hurt this time. From the full hypothesis: "Likewise, chemical plants of all types will burn and/or explode, including biofuels plants, fertilizer plants, specialty chemical plants, petroleum-related facilities and more."

2015-08-14 - Another explosion could occur 'at any time' after chemical warehouse destroyed in coastal Tianjin (China):

Quote: "DeBressy’s 12-second smartphone video packed a wallop. Her camera was rolling when the underground explosion rocked the intersection, sending a fireball roaring out of the ground."
Quote: "Con Edison said the explosions on the corner of 45th Street and Ninth Avenue at about 4 p.m. caused a small fire underground. No one was hurt, but the fire was causing delays on Ninth Avenue from 45th to 57th streets as crews make repairs. The explosions follow earlier reports of smoking manholes in the same area."

Quote: "Three manhole explosions in quick succession’s on the corner of 45th and 9th Avenue starting just before noon tied up traffic for hours. The second explosion blew out a fifth floor window at the Film Center building on the corner and the third manhole explosion sent a manhole cover over 15 feet into the air, landing and destroying part of this fire hydrant."

2015-08-14 - Underground explosion and fire blows manhole off in Rosslyn (Virginia):

Quote: "A witness said there was some sort of blast that sent the manhole cover airborne with 'flames and everything.' '[The] cover launched into the air and the flames that shot out were higher than the SUV next to it,' said Elizabeth Denton."

2015-08-14 - Recycling center hit by fire, two warehouses burn, in coastal Dubai (UAE):

  2. Happy that you and Tom have carried on...I've been so distracted by personal issues [that I hope will soon resolve]. My local paper had such a marvelous quote if you hadn't heard it:

    If the wind will not serve, take to the oars. – Latin Proverb

    A little extra insight here,

    What does that mean?
    This quote is another really simple way of reminding us that it is wise to have a PlanB ready, just in case the first idea doesn’t work out. Back in Roman times (and well before), most ships carried both sails and oars.

    Rowing was, and still is, backbreaking labor. You didn’t want to do it unless you had to. Sails were preferred, but sometimes the wind was lacking, either in force or in direction. To get where you were going, it was important to be able to have that backup plan.

    While I was unable to find a definitive source, this quote is attributed both to Walt Whitman and as an ancient Latin Proverb. But no matter where it came from, it is an important fact of life to remember the winds won’t always be favorable. What will you do when that happens?

  3. No doubt, taproot - good find! Prolly make JJFH banner quote (would be your 2nd, right?).

    Three injured after balloon crashes in Pennsylvania

    Three people were injured - one critically - when their hot-air balloon blew onto power lines after landing in rural southern Pennsylvania, police said on Sunday.

    Pilot Robert Fisher, 55, of Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, landed in a hayfield on Saturday evening, New Holland police said in a statement.

    Though the balloon appears to have landed safely, the top of the balloon blew over while the air was being let out and fell onto power lines, causing the pilot and passengers to suffer injuries from electric shock, police said.
