Event Update For 2018-09-11

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.

  1. Good morning Jonny, Fran, Mike D., Tom N., LL and any other readers.

    Sooner or later it'll begin to dawn on people that the destruction isn't letting up and they'll realize what it means to be in an extinction event.

    We're already seeing massive numbers of trees dying or already dead, some bursting into flame (and others burning from the INSIDE out)!
    Most of the remaining trees will be struggling with the "new" atmosphere we've provided via air pollution of all kinds, which effects their root systems and damages their ability to take up nutrients and water. Many are rotting from the inside, yet still produce foliage as long as they can.

    As we've read, the insect population is in serious decline world-wide, while marine life is suffering and dying out of our sight also.

    Super Typhoon "Mangkhut" (Ompong) to make landfall in northern Cagayan, Luzon, Philippines

    Super Typhoon "Mangkhut," known in the Philippines as Ompong, is expected to make landfall in northern Cagayan, Luzon, Philippines on Saturday morning (local time), September 15, 2018 with maximum sustained winds at or near 250 km/h (155 mph). [more; GEEZ!]
    Hurricane "Florence" forecast to stall or move very slowly along the coast, produce prolonged period of very dangerous conditions

    Hurricane "Florence" is approaching the United States today and is forecast to bring prolonged life-threatening impacts to the southeastern states through the weekend. The storm will bring life-threatening storm surge, flash flooding, and destructive winds to much of the North and South Carolina coastline over the next several days, NHC warns. The hurricane is expected to stall or move very slowly along the coast bringing a prolonged period of dangerous conditions to the region. [more; looks like another Harvey event]

    “I’ve Never Seen Anything Like This”: Meteorologists Expect Florence To Stall And Hammer The East Coast “For Days”

    The bizarre story of Hurricane Florence just keeps becoming even more strange. The good news is that meteorologists are telling us that the storm is expected to lose intensity as it approaches the east coast, but the really, really bad news is that it is now being projected that Florence will slow down and finally stall just off the coastline. In a worst-case scenario, the Carolinas and Georgia could be pounded with wind and rain “for days”, and some areas of North Carolina could end up being buried under nine feet of water. And even though the peak wind speed of Florence has diminished some, the storm just continues to expand in size. That means that it will ultimately hit a larger portion of the east coast than originally anticipated, and the overall economic cost will also ultimately be worse than the experts were forecasting.

  2. How Hurricane Florence may affect wildlife

    Experience suggests it won’t be pretty, and stories abound from storms past. For example, in August of 2017, Hurricane Harvey nearly wiped out the last remaining population of wild Attwater’s prairie chickens in Texas. Two months later, Hurricane Irma killed off up to 22 percent of the remaining population of endangered Key deer in the Florida Keys.

    And though it didn’t threaten specific species in the same way, Hurricane Matthew did drop a Cyprus tree smack dab on top of an American alligator when it ripped across Georgia in 2016.
    With Florence now classified as a Category 4 hurricane, it seems likely that the Eastern Seaboard and its animals could be in for a rough couple of days. [more]

    "It is already too late. We’ve passed the threshold. The beginning of the end has started. Humankind may, or may not be, part of the plan nature has for the Earth in the future. Life will be reborn, but first the world as we know it now will die." [more]

    Rivers and wells in post-flood Kerala dry up – Kilometers-long cracks in earth cause depletion of groundwater reserves – Kerala state requests $655 million for relief funding

    A series of issues including soaring mercury level, unprecedented dip in water level of rivers, sudden drying-up of wells, depletion of groundwater reserves and mass perishing of earthworms have caused widespread concern in various parts of Kerala after the devastating deluge last month.

    The flood-battered Wayanand district, known for its rich biodiversity, recently witnessed the mass perishing of earthworms, causing concern among farmers who attributed it to the rapid drying up of earth and change in soil structure.

    Besides the drying up of wells, their caving in was also reported in many districts.

    The flood had altered the topography of the land in many places and kilometres-long cracks had been developed especially in high range areas of Idukki and Wayanad which had witnessed a large number of landslides.

    After floods, drought condition was also predicted by experts in many districts of the southern state. [more]

    Without evidence, Trump rejects official Puerto Rico hurricane death toll of 2,975 victims – San Juan Mayor calls him “delusional, paranoid, and unhinged from any sense of reality”

    Amid ocean heatwave, Gulf of Maine experiences record temperatures in 2018 – “We’ve set 10 daily temperature records this summer, after setting 18 this winter”

    The waters off of New England are already warming faster than most of the world’s oceans, and they are nearing the end of one of the hottest summers in their history.

    That is the takeaway from an analysis of summer sea surface temperatures in the Gulf of Maine by a marine scientist with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute in Portland. The average sea surface temperature in the gulf was nearly 5 degrees Fahrenheit above the long-term average during one 10-day stretch in August, said the scientist, Andy Pershing, who released the work Thursday.

    The fire made a 4-mile run on Wednesday [more]

    The Silver Creek fire 19 air miles northwest of Kremmling, Colorado had been quiet for weeks, but strong winds and very low humidity on Wednesday brought it back to life in the Buffalo Park area. The 12 mph southwest wind gusting at 24 mph combined with 11 percent relative humidity caused the fire to spread four miles to the northeast, prompting fire officials to evacuate hunters in the area.

  12. Yeah, this is something new, not happened before. There've been some home explosions where a home has exploded and destroyed a bunch of homes around it too, but this is the first time that numerous homes have exploded separately. I guess I have to count them all in the residential explosions count in this case, since it obviously wasn't just one home exploding, but many.

    Notice where it happened too - right along the Merrimack River in the Merrimack Valley. Near one of those lakes with a weird and long Massachusetts name too.

  13. Hi Everyone, Hope you are all safe and well. There is interesting new video from Dana Durnford on the earthquake centered on Hokkaido in Japan last week or whenever. It was a massive quake which caused damage on an incredible scale to buildings and infrastructure and also tore up the landscape big time. Minor concern with a nuclear power plant pretty damn close to the epicenter as well.It's difficult to imagine that there was not a meltdown. It's just one thing on top of everything else I realize but it wasn't reported on in overly much detail and it was a BIG, BIG deal.
