Event Update For 2015-08-30

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.

    Triple threat: Earthquakes rattle California, Oklahoma, Oregon

    No injuries or major damage was reported Monday after earthquakes rattled cities in California, Oklahoma and Oregon.

    Around noon local time, a 2.9-magnitude earthquake rattled a location two and a half miles southwest of Compton, Calif. This report comes after news of a 2.6-magnitude earthquake that struck at 5:11 a.m. local time Sunday along the Hayward Fault in California's East Bay. Local residents reported feeling the quake, which is the latest in a series of rumbles along the fault scientists said could be precursors to a large temblor coming soon, KRON in San Francisco reported.

    Unusual streaks of light seen in Hawaii skies

    Many residents across the state observed unusual streaks of light or a "fireball" over Hawaiian skies late Sunday night, raising questions about what it could possibly be.

    Pandemonium broke out in West Malaysian school as pupils are hit by hysteria

    Pokok Sena: The learning session at a secondary school in Pokok Sena here was interrupted today when about 30 girls were hit by a bout of hysteria.

    It was a normal day for students at the school and the students were poring over their text books in their respective classes, before the hysteria broke out at approximately 1pm, Wednesday.

    The incident involved Form Two, Three and Four students who were studying in the second and third floor of the school's building.

    It was reported that the incident started on the top floor involving a Form Four student who claimed to have seen a phantom before a several other students on the lower floor were attacked by hysteria.

    The incident caused the school to stop the learning session earlier than scheduled to help the students recover.

    Some members from the Parent-Teacher Association (PIBG) struggled to calm the situation when more students were possessed. According to PIBG chairman Yusof Ishak, the students were taken to the school's surau for rehabilitation through Yassin recitals before they were recovered and taken to their respective homes.
