Event Update For 2017-10-25

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.

2017-10-25 - 'Smell of gas' hits area in coastal Timaru (New Zealand):

Quote: "Washdyke station officer Trevor Chapman said he suspected the smell had come from the sewers."

Note: So it was probably 'sewer gas', e.g. hydrogen sulfide. It might have blown in off the ocean, like the hydrogen sulfide hitting Huntington Beach and surrounding areas in California, or maybe it blew in off the ocean, infiltrated the sewer system and then came back out. Either way, there's some deadly poison gas blowing around town...

2017-10-25 - Mysterious explosion shakes homes on the Jersey Shore (New Jersey):

Quote: "A loud boom and shaking sensation was reported throughout Southern New Jersey on Wednesday morning that baffled people from the Shore to Burlington County."

Quote: "Someone who answered the phone at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst said it was possible the cause was a supersonic jet flying off the coast. But they added that MDL does not have jets capable of breaking the sound barrier."

Quote: "But the Navy had no training operations in the area this morning, said Lt. Liza Dougherty, a U.S. Navy spokeswoman."

Quote: "And it wasn't something from the Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, said Dawn Nickerson-Banez, a spokeswoman there. The base does not have supersonic jets."

Quote: "And it likely wasn't a meteorite crashing to Earth, said Harold Connolly Jr., the chair of Rowan University's geology department who studies asteroids and meteorites. He told NJ Advance Media that he hadn't seen any reports of regarding an object falling from space."

Note: Well, now we know all the things it wasn't, but that doesn't leave a whole lot. One thing they haven't eliminated as a cause is an atmospheric explosion, probably of methane. There is enough methane dissociating right off the East Coast there to cause 250,000 ten-kiloton explosions. If it bubbles out of the water, hits the atmosphere, auto-ignites and explodes, nobody would SEE the explosion if it's past the horizon, but they might still hear the sound and feel the explosion shaking the ground. Either way, once that 5 trillion pounds of methane really starts spewing out of the ocean off the East Coast, it's probably not gonna be very fun to be on the East Coast or in western Europe...

  1. The situation continues to worsen each day. Some days, it's only "routine" fires, explosions, accidents and the rest. Then, suddenly there's a spike in "activity" that indicates NOTHING is under control and we're all just waiting for the death and destruction bus to visit our own areas. Here's a case in point, NOT spoken about in the MSM:

    Friday, 27 October 2017
    Suppressed News

    A Massive Fire has been burning for 4 days now at a Warehouse in Parkersburg – Media Blackout

    A fire has been burning at a warehouse that’s become a dump for things Dupont can’t legally get rid of for more than 4 days in Parkersburg, WV.

    The state doesn’t know what was in there, but there is possibilities of any number of these products being stored there – PVC, Nylon, Carbon black, Titanium dioxide, Fiberglass, Maleic Anhydride TLV 0.1 ppm, Formaldehyde, PTFE (Teflon), Styrene, Acrylonitrile, Polybutylene Terephthalate, and/or Acrylic Sheet all of which are not good things when burned.
    Edit: Update from Reddit “There is also an underground storage tank from when it was ames that is full of trichloroethyene, lead, ethylbenzene, and toluene that is leaking.
    The fire suppression system for the warehouse failed last winter because one of the pipes froze and busted. They never had it fixed.”

    Edit 2: Another update from an insider that used to work for Dupont. IEI, who owns the building is a shell company owned by Dupont. Also, from a different insider “Saurabh Naik (Ed Note: The official owner of IEI) has dozens of LLC Shell companies like IEI that he funnels stuff through. He makes everyone that works from him sign an NDA.
    You’d be Shocked at some of the stuff that gets stored in his warehouses. You get everything from polymers to toxic Dust to drums of acid all thrown into the same sections of buildings. I’ve personally seen warehouses wall-to-wall with this stuff with literally no room to walk around in. If a Fire breaks out in one of his buildings then there is no way to put it out short of letting the entire thing Burn to the ground. Apparently this old AMES building was one of his worst . .

    Fire crews have been on site since Saturday, costing the city of Parkersburg $60,000 a day, they’ve already spent more than $300,000 on fighting the fire. Some fire fighters on site have said that while the fire on the building is easy to put out, some of the materials inside it burn hotter when sprayed with water. They do not have enough foam to put out the fire, but they need it badly.

    This ash cloud has been bellowing from the fire since the beginning and the ash has been found over 40 miles away. People who breathe in the ash and smoke for as little as half an hour have issues with breathing, burning skin, eyes, and throat. Residents are also reporting headaches and nausea. A lot of people have been hospitalized for acute chemical pneumonitis. Schools are closed, buses aren’t running, businesses are closed, and government agencies are closed. [see disgusting pics]

    Most people do not have the money to evacuate, and they are not safe in their homes, let alone if they leave to get supplies. The smoke cloud is literally blacking out the sky in areas.

    The weather in the last few days increased toxicity in the air and has caused toxic water run-off into the creeks and river. The fire department has nearly drained the city’s water reservoir, and the reservoir has likely been compromised by the ash as they don’t know if the filters can clear it. [the more you read, the worse it gets - thanks, DuPont!]

    Though a Dupont spokesperson said that the cloud was harmless, it reportedly smells like paint thinner and people are going to the hospital because of it.

    Once again, West Virginia has gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to our water, air, and land. And because of this, our citizens are suffering and our fire fighters are risking their lives to help fight the fire. [more; if you can stand it]

    Unseasonably cold temperatures for Midwest and Plains, powerful storm for the Northeast

    A strong cold front in the northern states will usher unseasonably cold temperatures into the Plains and Midwest Thursday into Friday, October 27, 2017, NWS warns. Frost Advisories, Freeze Warnings, and even some Hard Freeze Warnings are in effect. This front will also bring several inches of snow to portions of the Upper Midwest which could cause difficult travel conditions through Friday morning. A rapid cyclogenesis is expected to occur off the Eastern Seaboard Sunday - Monday, October 29 - 30 as a tropical disturbance undergoing extratropical transition enters a region of highly favorable upper-level dynamics, producing a potential heavy rain and wind event for portions of the Northeast.

    One of the little known dangers of lightning is that it can strike dozens of miles away from the actual thunderstorm itself.

    The new GOES 16 satellite has an advanced lightning sensor and captured a flash that started from a thunderstorm in southeastern Kansas and propagated about 250 miles across parts of Oklahoma and Missouri, according to NOAA [more]

  5. Big Oil Set to Make Facebook-Level Cash Even With $50 Crude
    The oil majors are reaping the benefits of deep cost cuts, but they're still not doing quite enough. The target: being able to fully fund dividends and investments at $40, or even $30 a barrel, according to BP Plc Chief Executive Officer Bob Dudley.
    So, still more cost cutting is needed. But as we've seen, spending on exploration and development has already fallen far below the reserve replacement rate. The promise of further spending cuts doesn't sound very encouraging. -- RF

    [on a more personal note, my wife dug a tick out of my back after I had a shower - so far, no ill effects]

  8. On a personal note here, infrastructure collapse got me! Sewer and water system under the house collapsed. Monday, when workers show up again, will be day 6 of this stuff. A neighbor let the workers connect a hose to their house so we have temporary water for now. (Unmetered water, so it doesn't cost 'em anything, and I'd do the same for them.) Cost to repair everything, five digits. Not blaming this on anything other than it's an old house, which dates back to the St. Louis World Fair at the beginning of the 1900s. Still sucks donkey balls though! Boooo! *shakes fist at universe*

  9. Homeowners' insurance should cover that. If not - crowdfund!
    If I was even reasonably well off i'd write you a check. Really sorry to hear that, buddy. I imagine they're digging from the street in to your basement to replace the old lines and possibly jackhammering the concrete basement floor too. Lotta dust and dirt - you livin' in a hotel temporarily? My wife would have moved out the minute that happened and said "call me when it's fixed!"

    So far the only threat to my house is from my dying (> 100' tall) trees that continually drop branches, leaves and nuts all over the back yard. One of 'em got struck by lightning a few years back and is damaged, but I don't have any kind of money for tree climbers to get up there and cut the dead out (that one threatens my neighbor's place). Any time there's a high-wind advisory, I get nervous that my house will be crushed to splinters.

    Hey - at least we don't live in PR!

  10. We live in an unlucky spot. The border between the City of St. Louis and Richmond Heights runs right through the house. Therefore, though we pay sewer insurance to the city, it doesn't cover this, because the part of the house affected is in Richmond Heights. Never foresaw that! This can't possibly affect too many people - could be we're the only ones. And so why are we paying sewer insurance, aside from the fact that it's mandatory?

    And yeah, lotta jackhammering and digging, but not much dust or dirt inside, at least not yet. We're staying put anyway. Hey, thanks to the kind neighbor, we have water and the sewer part's already done. So it's more or less normal life except for the noise when the workers are working.

    I'm just chalking it all up to 'shit happens'!
