Event Update For 2016-03-05

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.

2016-03-05 - Mysterious explosion just after midnight alarms people in coastal Bournemouth (Britain):

Quote: "Dozens of residents in Kinson, Northbourne and West Parley heard a loud 'explosion' just after midnight last night. The Echo has been flooded with messages from readers who heard the 'very loud bang', which was not repeated. One reader wrote 'just heard the loudest bang, my hair is still standing up!'"

2016-03-05 - Passenger plane hit by smoke, aborts takeoff, in Fort Wayne (Indiana):

Quote: "The plane, with 153 passengers and a crew of six, returned to the gate after pilots were alerted to a mechanical issue and reports of smoke in the cabin."

Note: This is the 23rd aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2016...

2016-03-05 - Underground electrical fire hits Point Breeze area at 6 AM in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania):

2016-03-05 - Electrical substation damaged by transformer fire on Hoopern Terrace in coastal Dawlish (Britain):

Quote: "A Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: 'The fire involves a large quantity of scrap metal.'"

2016-03-05 - Refinery damaged by explosion and fire in coastal Pasadena (Texas), 1+ injured:

Quote: "Residents in the area told abc13 they felt a powerful blast right before flames began to rise from the plant."

Quote: "The blaze, which has been contained, started Saturday at the hydrogen desulphurization unit of the plant in Pasadena, Texas..."

Note: That's the part of the refinery that removes hydrogen sulfide from oil/gas and 'desours' it...

2016-03-05 - Car bursts into flame while parked at home at 3:45 AM, fire spreads to three large multi-family homes, in New Britain (Connecticut), 33 people homeless:

Quote: "Residents and fire officials said the fire appears to have started in a car parked in the alley in back of the houses at 166 and 170 Broad St. and to the side of 44 Gold St. which were all gutted by the three-alarm blaze."

Note: Crazy people parking vehicles near where they live. Ah well, they lived, this time, so they can go buy all new stuff. Good for the economy! The worst (non-fatal) car fire so far, that I can recall off-hand anyway, was a parked car that burst into flame at 6 AM at an apartment building in coastal Bridgeport (Connecticut), resulting in a massive inferno that destroyed the entire apartment building and left 120 people homeless, mentioned in the 2015-12-31 update. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any methane and/or hydrogen sulfide in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and animals and people sickening and/or dying more common during those hours...

Insulation and veneering on one of the decks in the superstructure were alight. The fire Brigade of Kaliningrad was deployed, and the fire was extinguished."

The house and barn were destroyed, and all of his milking equipment and farm machinery were destroyed, too. Neither the farmer nor his farmhands were injured, but about 25 cows died in the fire, Stocker said. The farm was not insured."

Quote: "Stocker said getting water to the fire proved a challenge, and fire crews initially had to bring it in by tanker. He added that firefighters eventually were able to tap into a pond about half a mile away."

Note: Good thing *cough cough* that pond was so close. These are the 428th, 429th and 430th tractors/tankers/semis to burn in 2016...

  1. Nice job, Jonny. On this day we see yet more infrastructure burnin' up, scrap metal (including cars and other vehicles being driven) fires, more landfill and boat fires, businesses (especially in the energy sector) being destroyed by fire, and residences razed in flames. People dropping dead in all kinds of situations that used to be normal, low-risk activities also points to the verity of JJFH.
