Event Update For 2018-01-14

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.

2018-01-14 - Car bursts into flame and kills man at auto shop in coastal East Patchogue (New York):

Quote: "Police have identified the man whose body was found Sunday night in the driver’s seat of a burned car at an East Patchogue auto repair center, Suffolk police said Monday. Mohammad Rafiq, 65, of Baldwin, has been identified as the man found in the car. Detectives believe his death to be noncriminal in nature."

2018-01-14 - Passenger plane hit by smoke at coastal JFK Airport (New York):

Quote: "A commercial plane was evacuated amid a smoky scene at John F. Kennedy Airport on Sunday evening, officials said. Delta flight 2164 was near Terminal 2 when the crew reported a smoke condition, according to Port Authority PBA."

2018-01-14 - Casino shuttle boat carrying 50 people bursts into flame in canal near coastal Port Richey (Florida), 1 killed, 14 injured:

Quote: "The casino company said its shuttle boat that caught fire off Florida's Gulf Coast never had any previous problems."

Quote: "The woman died late Sunday hours after the fire began, while 14 other people were injured, Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point spokesman Kurt Conover said Monday. The woman had gone home after escaping the boat that was engulfed in flames, but went to the hospital’s emergency room after she became ill."

Note: She'd been in the water, on the coast, breathing smoke. She could've gotten poisoned by the water or the smoke or both, and the effects just didn't kick in immediately. Hydrogen sulfide sometimes kills with a delayed reaction of minutes, hours or even a few days. Her death is very similar to the firefighters who've been dropping dead hours after fighting a fire...

  1. Thanks for another amazing report, Jonny. Lots of incidents along the coasts in this one. Grimsby might be a 2nd JJFH hotspot this year, the way things are going. So many "medical events" causing accidents, damage and death these days - yet nobody asks exactly what this means. Is it a seizure, people hyperventilating and passing out, a brain aneurysm or what? Of course, there's never any "follow-up" to any of these stories.

    According to seemorerocks today, there's a HUGE political event going on in the background that is being kept from the public by the msm, which will all come out by the end of the month. Take a listen to this ~ 17 min. video.
