GEOLOGICAL UPHEAVAL: Monster Sinkholes in Guiyang, China!

In April, in an article on exopolitical disclosure and Earth changes, I said the following:
Which country builds 20 new cities every year in the middle of a desert? A country that knows about upcoming disastrous events that will affect the coastline of every country on Earth. A country that will build ten New York-sized cities by the year 2025. A country that will add more new city-dwellers than the entire American population by 2030. A country that is increasing purchases of the sovereign debt and infrastructure investments of other countries. A country that is in the process of acquiring the majority stake in the reserves of rare Earth elements. A country that is leading the world in science and technological development. The country with the fastest growing Gross Domestic Product (GDP) globally. The country with the largest exports and imports of goods worldwide. A country that is currently on a monster shopping spree, purchasing every commodity, bond, and resource it can get its hands on. A country that already consumes twice as much steel as the U.S., Europe and Japan combined. A country that has 150% more soldiers than America does, with 3.4 million active military personnel compared to America's 1.4 million. That country, my friends, is China. - CHINESE DEMOCRACY: Morals & Dogma - The Pervasive Deception of the Exopolitical, Alternative and Global Awakening Movements; False Narrative of Government Disclosure of the Extraterrestrial Presence; and the Signs and Symbols of the End of America and Rise of China?!
The precursory evidence of these upcoming "disastrous events" of geological upheaval are manifesting all over China. Over the last year or two, I have been documenting the massive sinkholes that have been appearing across the country. During the course of the last two weeks, we have seen where cars and trucks have been swallowed up by these holes in places like Changchu and Zhujiang New City and now they are showing up again.

The following images was taken of several mysterious sinkholes seen in the Guizhou Province in Guiyang. The cause for the massive holes that trapped six cars is still under investigation by government authorities and local officials.

Since April this year, the average temperature in China over the past 50 years for the second time reached record high scale with many areas suffering from drought or heatwave conditions.  A desert area of 90 hectares, consisting of harsh dry spells was creeping towards the capital Beijing at a speed of 4 metres per year. The area has lost all of its trees due to lack of water. In May, in the urban district of Guilin of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in the village Syanshuy Quanzhou County, a stone quarry suddenly descended mudflow, which are located at the foot of the mountain huts with more than 20 migrant workers were buried alive under the rubble.

There are many stories like these in China, but given the fact that it is a communist state, only a few of them have leaked out. Expect to see much more in the coming weeks and months as the significant nature of the upheavals will take precedence over the restrictions of the regime.

PLANETARY TREMORS: Sidoarjo Mud Volcano Erupting 5 Years On!

Five years on, the Sidoarjo mud volcano in Indonesia is still erupting.

A mud volcano that began erupting five years ago, near a drilling site on the eastern portion of Indonesia’s Java island is still spewing out toxic sludge. Entire villages, towns, business districts, and even a cemetery has been swamped with mud, forcing residents to evacuate and live somewhere else. "My whole life is buried here. I've lost everything: my house and the warung (streetside food stall) I opened just before the disaster," Harwati, a 35-year-old widow, told AsiaOne. "Since then, life has been really hard. It's difficult to find a job."

At least 40,000 people have been forced from their homes due to the encroaching mud from Sidoarjo volcano, also known as “Lusi." On May 29, 2006, the mud began spewing in the middle of a rice field and never stopped. In all, a dozen villages, 30 factories, and even more businesses have been destroyed due to the ever-pouring sludge, according to AsiaOne. Scientists have predicted that the volcano will continue to erupt for many more years, according to news reports published several months ago. “Our estimate is that it will take 26 years for the eruption to drop to a manageable level and for Lusi to turn into a slow bubbling volcano," Richard Davies, a professor of Earth sciences at Durham University, told AFP in February. "In the middle of the lake, or the volcano, is a vent that is 50 meters (164 feet) wide, but there are 166 other vents that have popped up over the last four-plus years,” he added.

PLANETARY TREMORS: Study - Expect Increase Global Volcanism?!

According to the following report, a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Iceland, the frequency of volcanism have entered a cyclic phase of increased eruptions.

Grimsvotn Volcano recently erupted in Iceland.
Within the space of just over a year, aircraft have now been grounded in Europe twice by ash blowing in from Iceland. This has caused many millions of pounds of disruption. A key question uppermost in many minds is whether the frequency of eruptions in Iceland is increasing. The short answer here is ‘yes, probably’. But, it is not just the frequency of eruptions that matters. To impact the airspace of the United Kingdom and continental Europe, the ash has to be ejected high enough, and be fine enough that it can remain airborne for days. Then the winds have to conspire to push it towards Europe, and the winds blow over Iceland from the north only a small fraction of the time. Studies by researchers at the University of Iceland have noted that the frequency of eruptions from volcanoes beneath the Vatnajökull ice cap (including Grímsvötn, which erupted in May this year) seems to wax and wane with a cycle of about 140 years. Prior to the 1980s, there were no such eruptions from these volcanoes for over 40 years and there have now been four within 15 years.

The reason for the apparent cyclicity is not established but, in any case, we appear very likely to have entered a phase of more eruptions. The volcanoes beneath the Vatnajökull ice cap are not, of course, the only ones in Iceland — Eyjafjallajökull, for instance, which erupted last year, is not covered by the Vatnajökull ice cap — and the same patterns may not apply elsewhere. However, perhaps more importantly than the number of eruptions, the University of Iceland study also noted that the intensity of eruptions increases in times of high activity, meaning that the height of the ash, and therefore the chances of it reaching Europe, also increases. Perhaps of even greater concern is that the major fissure eruptions have also occurred during periods of high volcanic activity, although with only two of these within the last 800 years, this could be coincidence. Here the concern is not so much for air traffic, but for something far worse. The Laki fissure eruption in 1783-1784 killed a quarter of the Icelandic population and led to the deaths of thousands throughout Europe, due to poisoning and extreme cold. In the twenty-first century, we might be able to mitigate the direct effects of poisoning somewhat, but the climatic effects would still be devastating for susceptible portions of the population and for agriculture.

On top of this pattern of variable eruption frequency, the ice caps in Iceland have been shrinking since the late nineteenth century. Vatnajökull, for instance, has lost an estimated 400 billion tonnes of ice over this time period. This has decreased the pressure on the hot mantle material beneath the crust, which feeds Icelandic eruptions, leading to increased magma generation. As the last ice age ended, volcanism in Iceland was some 30 times higher than usual. The current rate of ice loss is now much less, but it is likely that on the order of two cubic kilometres of extra magma have been generated since the recent ice retreat began — equivalent to more than ten 2010 Eyjafjallajokull eruptions! Perhaps our one saving grace, in the short term, at least, is that it may take quite some time for this extra magma to find its way to the surface. Trying to assess more fully the impact of the melting ice on future eruptions is something that colleagues and I continue to work on.

EARTH CHANGES: Record-breaking 100-Degree Heat in Houston?!

In Texas, the Houston area may see hottest June on record.

Can you have a summer heat wave before summer even starts? Apparently so. It looks like Thursday's record-breaking 100-degree heat was no anomaly (though Houston got a slight "cool down" with a high of 96 Friday). Temperatures are forecast to hit a sweltering 99 degrees today and Sunday, more than two weeks before summer officially kicks off. In fact, we may be in for the hottest June on record. Fred Schmude, a forecaster with ImpactWeather, said based on the current pattern of air flow coming in from the West, June will see slightly above normal temperatures, with several days reaching 100 degrees or above.

Accuweather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski projects the Houston area will average around 3 degrees above normal for the summer. But as a result of this current westerly flow, Houston will also see lower than normal humidity levels. Friday saw a return of Gulf air that normally brings in the humidity. Kottlowski said breaks in the current pattern will bring in a flow from the Gulf, but that will not be enough to bring the humidity back up to normal levels. "Even though we are getting a flow off the Gulf, it is very shallow," he said. "Normally, that moisture level is deeper. Deeper moisture not only allows us to see humidity, but it also allows us to see showers and thunderstorms." These breaks through the summer could also mean a reprieve from the heat. "Hopefully those breaks won't be just a couple of days," Kottlowski said. "The longer the break, the higher the chance that deep tropical moisture will bring significant rainfall over the area."

PLANETARY TREMORS: Time-Lapse Video of Popocatepetl Volcano!

Yesterday, I told you about the towering eruption of ashes of over 3 kilometres above the crater of the  Popocatepetl volcano over Mexico City. Well, here is a time-lapse video of the eruption:

PLANETARY TREMORS: 750 Quakes in 32 hours at Puyehue Volcano!

An alert level has been raised to 4 regarding Chile’s Puyehue volcano, as 750 earthquakes was recorded in a 32 hour period or 140 in 5.6 hours.

The Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcanic complex (PCCVC) is a large NW-SE-trending late-Pleistocene to Holocene basaltic-to-rhyolitic transverse volcanic chain SE of Lago Ranco. The 1799-m-high Pleistocene Cordillera Nevada caldera lies at the NW end, separated from Puyehue stratovolcano at the SE end by the Cordón Caulle fissure complex.

The Pleistocene Mencheca volcano with Holocene flank cones lies NE of Puyehue. The basaltic-to-rhyolitic Puyehue volcano is the most geochemically diverse of the PCCVC. The flat-topped, 2236-m-high Puyehue volcano was constructed above a 5-km-wide caldera and is capped by a 2.4-km-wide summit caldera of Holocene age. Lava flows and domes of mostly rhyolitic composition are found on the eastern flank of Puyehue.

Historical eruptions originally attributed to Puyehue, including major eruptions in 1921-22 and 1960, are now known to be from the Cordón Caulle rift zone. The Cordón Caulle geothermal area, occupying a 6 x 13 km wide volcano-tectonic depression, is the largest active geothermal area of the southern Andes volcanic zone.

THE GREAT DELUGE: A World Awashed Under Widespread Flooding!

With warnings from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that there will be a 70 per cent chance of 12 to 18 named storms and six to 10 projected hurricanes, my homeland of Jamaica is already feeling the early droplets of the Tropical Atlantic season, where it is said that three to six of these weather patterns could become major hurricanes, with sustained winds of 111 miles per hour or higher. We have suffered extensively from hurricanes and tropical storms during the period June to November, in recent years, and our Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) has just issued a warning to residents of low-lying and flood-prone areas to be on high alert for flash flooding as rains affecting the island were expected to continue over the weekend.

The National Meteorological Service said periods of showers and thunderstorms, which could be heavy at times, were expected to affect most parishes last night and continuing into the weekend.The area of low pressure, the Met Service said, has a low chance of developing into a tropical cyclone by late Sunday. The forecast was for towns in the southwestern and northeastern section of the island — May Pen, Mandeville, Black River, Savanna-la-Mar, Negril, Port Antonio and Port Maria — to receive thunderstorms, and elsewhere showers. “This means that vulnerable communities across the island should be on high alert as antecedent moisture could cause flash flooding,” said the ODPEM. It said communities in Kingston and St Andrew that are along the Sandy Gully, Boucher Gully and other gully networks should remain vigilant as high levels of storm water were reported in these channels yesterday. - Jamaica Observer
As we prepare for these thunderstorms, tropical cyclones and hurricanes, the deluge from these type of weather systems continues to swamp several countries across the globe.

In Colombia, the persistent heavy rains continue to hit the country, where over two million people have been affected by widespread flooding, landslides and land subsidence. Across the country, nearly 500 have died as a direct result.

Since December last year, this quarter provided a major landslide, as well as cover some homes, caused the cracking and subsequent fall another 15 visited the area, and only five months later, authorities begin to take action on the matter.

Now ask the competent authority to do the cleaning necessary to avoid a repetition, "said Cesar Mantilla, coordinator of the day of the water damaged some files mañana.El academics. Due to the emergency, the Civil Defense and Fire Department rushed to the scene, but did not have the specialized equipment to remove water. At 9:00 in the morning, water came down the work conducted by the community educativa.Según the report of the Civil Defense, the flooding occurred because the drainage system becomes clogged and prevented the water flow with ease.

In the United States, the Missouri River continues to rise, as flooding extends underground.

Hundreds of people in North and South Dakota evacuated affluent areas along the Missouri River on Friday as federal officials increased water releases to relieve pressure on six reservoirs. Residents in Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska were also braced for flooding. About 400 people from neighborhoods in Bismarck, N.D., were evacuating, and Gov. Dennis Daugaard of South Dakota urged residents of Dakota Dunes to leave by midnight. The Army Corps of Engineers increased the flow through the Oahe Dam above Pierre, S.D., on Friday. The river level is expected to rise about four feet by Tuesday. - New York Times.

In the Philippines, intermittent rain caused flash flooding in 21 villages and thousands of families.

Flash floods that hit at least two towns of Maguindanao province this week may cause a delay in the opening of classes there, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said. In an update posted on its website Friday night, the NDRRMC said Pagalungan and Datu Montawal towns were still flooded, with the overflowing of the Pagalungan River and Rio Grande de Mindanao (Tunggol River) tagged as the cause. "Opening of classes in most schools (in Pagalungan) next week might not push through as floodwaters may take some time to subside especially at the Tunggol National High School, which is a few meters away from the Tunggol River," it said. The Pangalungan town council also convened last Thursday to declare a state of calamity, the NDRRMC added. Even official transactions at the Pagalungan municipal hall had been disrupted due to the floods, according to the NDRRMC. Moreover, it said some 400 families had been displaced due to the floods, with more than 50 of them staying in makeshift tents around the perimeter fence of the Datu Montawal Municipal Hall. "Classes in Datu Montawal might not start next week," it added. As of Friday, the NDRRMC said the floods had affected 8,878 families or 56,852 people in 23 villages in Pagalungan ad Datu Montawal. The floods also damaged 792 hectares of crops (rice, corn, and vegetables) worth some P7.887 million. - GMA News.
Floods caused by intermittent rains have affected 21 barangays in two towns in the northern areas of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), the region’s Office of Civil Defense (OCD) announced Friday. Retired Army Gen. Loreto Rirao, OCD-ARMM director, identified the latest affected towns as Pagalungan and Datu Montawal in Maguindanao, along the Cotabato-Davao national highway, where the inundations have displaced more than 13,000 families as of Thursday. Rirao said recent downpours starting from storm “Chedeng” and outpouring from the mountains of Bukidnon and North Cotabato caused the Rio Grande de Mindanao to swell, submerging 12 of the 17 villages in Pagalungan, and nine of the 11 villages in Datu Montawal. Floodwaters displaced 8,878 families in Pagalungan, and 5,578 others in Datu Montawal, said Rirao, who coordinated with concerned government agencies in addressing the mass displacement woes... A total of 27 villages in four other towns of Maguindanao, and 29 villages in the 12 towns of Lanao del Sur had been submerged by floodwaters due to torrential rains brought by typhoon “Chedeng” – affecting a total of 20,446 families. - MB.

Hundreds of houses in the village of Kutambaro, and Kutambaro Bencawan Village, District Lawe Month, Southeast Aceh district (Aceh Tenggara), since Wednesday at around 22:00 pm tonight through Thursday afternoon, as high as 50 centimeters inundated due to dike broken-down as long as 20 meters. While dozens of tons of carp which kept the population in the tens of hectares of ponds scattered off the road and settlements. Also submerged rice fields and transport currents in the area disturbed. ACIP, a resident of the Village Kutambaro Bencawan, the Porch, Thursday said the flooding was caused by breached levees along the 20 meters. He said the levee jebolnya already common in the rainy season because it is not installed on the edge of the river beronjong Kisam. Meanwhile, Camat Lawe Moon, Samanuddin, said the levee that burst was a long dike. This disaster occurred due to not able to accommodate a large flow of water due to rain so the water becomes large. While in the village river narrowed so was unable to accommodate the flow of water. "So, it should be immediately widened and constructed gabion to be safe from floods," said Camat Lawe Month. Watchlist Porch, hundreds of people lined the edge of the trench for carp fishing.

In India, the monsoon has not even set in and Jorhat is already under water, thanks to a bout of sudden rain that left the district reeling under floods for the last few days. Almost 60% of the city saw large-scale waterlogging.

Jorhat municipal board chairperson, Prasanta Bora, said, "Almost all the 19 wards have been affected by the rain, they are ward number 1, 3, 7, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18. Over 35,000 people and 7,000 households have been affected as of now." Asked about the cause behind the acute waterlogging, a technical expert from the Jorhat development authority said there were several reasons. Lack of proper planning and encroachment were two of the prime causes. "Rapid industrialization and a growing population were choking the city. The town is among the oldest in the state and lacks a master plan. Haphazard construction and clogged drains were adding to the problem," he said. Hundreds of people organized a road blockade at Lichubari in southern Jorhat on Monday in protest against the failures of the administration to provide a proper drainage system. Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Pariahad, Jorhat district unit, forwarded a memorandum to the deputy commissioner requesting adoption of early relief measures. In the memorandum, the organization demanded eviction of illegal encroachers from Tarajan, early completion of Na Ali construction works and construction of bridges in some areas. - Times of India.
