Event Update For 2016-12-24

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.

2016-12-24 - Sulfury rotten egg odor spreads across parts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, blamed on refinery leak:

Quote: "It was determined that the smell came from the Paulsboro Refinery in Paulsboro, Gloucester County. Police say the refinery released approximately 130 pounds of Sulfer Dioxide and 9 pounds of Hydrogen Sulfide around 10:30 p.m. Friday."

Note: Another day, another area getting hit by poison gas. Not sure I buy that refinery leak excuse. When hydrogen sulfide breaks down in the atmosphere, it forms sulfur dioxide and water, and the winds were blowing in from off the ocean when this occurred (I checked), and this was smelled all the way from coastal Toms River (New Jersey) to Philadelphia (Pennsylvania)...

2016-12-24 - Sulfury rotten egg odor smelled in various parts of Jackson (Michigan):

Quote: "The reports mostly came from the west side, but they stretched from Loomis Park on Gilbert Street to Walmart on W. Michigan Avenue, said Capt. Bob Walkowicz, who wrote five reports on natural gas odor investigations. Summit Township firefighters had two reports around 9 p.m. Dec. 24. Walkowicz said Consumers Energy representatives and Blackman-Leoni Township public safety officers also were involved. The smell was not consistent despite an almost total lack of wind Saturday night, Walkowciz said."

Note: No natural gas leaks detected anywhere. They appear to be assuming this was natural gas, when it likely wasn't, which is why they couldn't find anything. A rotten egg smell just hit coastal Tampa (Florida) the day prior too, mentioned in the 2016-12-23 update...

2016-12-24 - Sulfury rotten egg odor hits Columbus (Ohio):

Quote: "Columbia Gas of Ohio says they're still receiving calls about an offensive odor in the Columbus area that has residents thinking there might be an unidentified gas leak. Officials say they have not found any evidence that natural gas is responsible."

2016-12-24 - Fourteen trucks and public works building destroyed by fire in Irondequoit (New York), near Lake Ontario:

Quote: "A large fire broke out late Saturday night at the Irondequoit Department of Public Works on Kings Highway. The building holds the town’s highway department fleet, including plow trucks and sanitation trucks. Irondequoit Supervisor Dave Seeley told 13WHAM News that several town vehicles have been destroyed and this fire has caused millions of dollars of damage. He says the top priority is the safety of all first responders on scene. Parts of the building started to collapse just before 1:00 a.m. Sunday, roughly three hours after fire began."

Quote: "Seeley said the town lost seven plow/salt trucks, one flush truck, two pickup trucks, a 1-ton dump truck and three other trucks."

2016-12-24 - Russian Ministry of Defense plane crashes into the Black Sea shortly after departing from coastal Sochi (Russia), 92 killed:

Quote: "The aircraft went missing as it was manoeuvring over Russia's territorial waters, the source added."

Quote: "A total of 84 passengers and eight crew were on board when the plane dropped off radar shortly after take-off at 5:40am local time (0240 GMT) from Adler airport in Sochi, southern Russia. The plane had stopped off at Adler en route from Moscow to Syria. Russia's defence ministry said fragments of the plane, a Soviet-designed three-engine airliner, had been found by rescuers about 1.5km (one mile) from the shore in water 50-70 metres deep. There were no reports of survivors."

  3. Storm blew through here early this morning, before sunrise, got hit by a power outage, twice. Wasn't a bad storm though, just kinda drizzly, so not sure what happened with the power. It sucked though. Right as the computer was almost done rebooting from the first power outage, bam, out it went again. Luckily there was nothing within my reach that I could throw at the wall. Heh.
