Event Update For 2017-02-04

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.

2017-02-04 - Home heavily damaged by basement explosion and fire in Collinsville (Illinois):

2017-02-04 - Underground subway train bursts into flame in coastal Haifa (Israel):,7340,L-4917417,00.html,7340,L-4917403,00.html

Quote: "Fire fighting teams managed to put out the flames after two Carmelit train cars parked at Paris Station caught fire on Saturday. One woman living near Golomb Station was reported to have been injured from inhaling the smoke, it began to fill underground stations and exit to street level. Several areas of the city were cut off of electricity as atemtps were made to halt the fire."

Note: Israeli scientists detected hundreds of 'gas springs' bubbling methane from the sea floor off their coast in late 2012, mentioned in the 2012-11-12 update. That problem has surely gotten worse since then. And in the Gaza Strip, on the coast, gas was filmed spewing from sandy ground just last year, mentioned in the 2016-02-08 update. That was likely methane from those seabed eruptions leaking up through the ground along the Gaza Strip. Methane is likely migrating up through the ground in Haifa now too, and when it does, it may get trapped in subways and cause fires and/or explosions...

This is the coastal city that's also had an unusually high number of car fires. Lotsa car fires, lotsa people dropping dead, on the coast, not a coincidence...

  1. Good morning Jonny, Fran and all readers of JJFH!

    What the Hull is going on in Britain!? Every freakin' day there are a ton of JJFH incidents. Geez!

    This will probably turn out to be a really bad year by the time we reach September/October. I mean, yeah it's pretty bad now with all these crazy fires and people dropping dead (a paratrooper and a sailor today - so it has nothing to do with what kind of shape your in), ridiculous accidents, buildings burning and fires breaking out all over, but this stuff will intensify as spring and summer arrive. Watch out.

    Now that our government has become a wholly owned subsidiary of the corporate sector, it was only a matter of time before the rollback of clean air and water rules that impinged on their bottom lines.

I forgot who he is, but I definitely heard of him. Something about the two letter last name, drawn out in the phony Chinese accent, was like a cough I had to get out. Seriously, i'm fucked up. So I hop on the ol' info box and look around after doing some chores and boom:
