WEATHER ANOMALIES: Storm, Lightning & Floods Hit Copenhagen!

Violent storms, heavy rains, widespread flooding and thousands of lightning have caused chaos in the Danish capital Copenhagen, damaging homes and sparking travel chaos in parts of the city. No one is reported to have been injured as a result of the wild weather conditions. Danish rescue services said 150mm (6 in) of rain fell over the Copenhagen area on Saturday, with more heavy showers forecast for Sunday evening. It is the worst rainfall that has hit the capital in over 30 years.

Authorities say heavy rains have flooded hundreds of homes and several streets in Denmark's capital, disrupting traffic and delaying trains. Jeppe Ilkjaer, a spokesman for the rescue services company Falck, says his organization has received calls from more than 1,000 home owners in Copenhagen whose cellars have been flooded following the rains late Saturday. The Danish Road Directorate says the floods have forced it to close four major freeways surrounding the city Sunday and have delayed trains in the region. No one has been injured by the floods, which also have disrupted telephone lines to Copenhagen police. Rescue Services said 150 millimeters (6 inches) of rain fell over the Copenhagen area on Saturday and more heavy showers are expected Sunday evening. - Sun News.

ICE AGE NOW: Is Britain about to be plunged into a Little Ice Age?

Scientists think Britain and Europe could be in for a chilly few years predicting a 'Little Ice Age' could be on its way in just a few decades time.

Average temperatures in Britain could fall by two degrees centigrade, according to the study led by Mike Lockwood, professor of space environment physics at Reading University, because of a drop in the amount of sunspot activity. Sunspots are darker patches seen in the sun's surface which are caused by small areas of magnetic activity which disrupts the normal flow of intensely heated gases. But last year, Professor Lockwood discovered that a drop in sunspots could block winds that can keep Europe from excessive cold in winter, according to the Daily Telegraph. Professor Lockwood's team looked at the sun's activity of the past 9,300 years using Met Office data.His findings, published by the Institute of Physics, (IoP) showed that in the next 50 years there is a one in 10 chance of the sun returning to conditions seen between 1645 and 1715 when the River Thames in London regularly froze over, as did the Baltic Sea.

Known as the Maunder Minimum during these years astronomers could not see any sunspots and Europe endured unusually harsh winters which came to be known as the Little Ice Age. Professor Lockwood's findings could mean the average winter temperature could drop below 2.5C, compared to the average British winter now of 5C, the newspaper reported. In June, three different studies all concluded that sunspot activity looks set to decline over the next 10 years. Experts said the next upswing in sunspot activity, which follows an 11-year cycle, will not be as strong as normal - or might not even happen at all. The findings were presented at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society's solar physics division. They said a decrease in global warming might result in the years after 2020, the approximate time when sunspots are expected to disappear for years, maybe even decades.

GREAT DELUGE: Souris Braces For Peak Floods, As River Rises!

The southwestern Manitoba community of Souris is preparing for all flood scenarios, including the closing of the bridge that links the town, as river levels continue to rise, the mayor says.

About 200 Canadian Forces personnel have been deployed to the town to help build up its defences for the expected crest of the Souris River on Tuesday. Some dikes may have to be raised to a height of nearly four metres, according to officials. Souris Mayor Darryl Jackson said he made the appeal for the military's help because the town, about 220 kilometres west of Winnipeg, is also threatened in the west by Plum Creek, which flows into the Souris and could spill its banks. "We just were not going to have time to get those dikes armoured," Jackson told CBC News on Sunday morning. "The soldiers came in yesterday. They were put right to work there." The river rose another 15 centimetres overnight, Jackson said, which forced health-care and fire officials to make arrangements in case the bridge needs to be closed. "We have certainly been alerted to that possibility," he said. "Our doctors all live on this side of the river, not the hospital side, so I'm sure they're making plans for at least one of the doctors to be on site at the hospital when the water is close." - CBC.
Crews from the town of Souris, Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation and the Office of the Fire Commissioner cut the support cables on the east side of the Souris swinging bridge as a precautionary measure because of concerns the high water and flows could sweep the bridge away.

An iconic suspension bridge fell prey to the threat of flood water Sunday. A 107-year-old cable bridge - the longest in Canada - in the southwestern Manitoba town of Souris had to be cut down as a precautionary measure as it was feared the rising Souris River could have swept it away. The 582-foot swinging bridge over the Souris River was taken down about 7:30 a.m. Sunday due to concerns that high water and fast flows could carry it away and potentially rip out concrete moorings that may run under berms protecting roadways. "It could have compromised our whole diking system if that had happened," said Souris Mayor Darryl Jackson. "We didn't want to gamble. It was a sad decision to have to make, but one that had to be made... It's our icon and one of Manitoba's star attractions," Jackson said. "Our commitment, once the water situation slows down, is to look at redesigning and building a renewed swinging bridge." The precautionary move to bring the bridge down came a day after Canadian Forces soldiers were deployed in the town to prepare for the river's crest, which is expected to hit Tuesday. - Toronto Sun.

THE GREAT DELUGE: Heavy Rains & Widespread Flooding in China!

Heavy downpours have wreaked havoc in China, with several areas recording 100 millimeters of rain. The deluge grounded dozens of flights and triggered mudslides that inundated highways.

Elsewhere in Sichuan. 125 people were sickened by a chemical plant gas leak from a factory damaged by a mudslide in Dujiangyan. Sixty people remain hospitalized. An initial investigation indicates that the leaked gas was chlorine. Relentless rain caused mud-and-rock slides, cave-ins, and change of river courses in Wenchuan county, Sichuan Province. Rain-triggered mudslides damaged several highways in Wenchuan, stranding up to 7-thousand vehicles. National highway 2-1-3 and provincial highway 3-0-3 were both cut off at a number of sections. A section of road stretching more than 100 meters was destroyed on national highway 2-1-3 in Yinxin Township. Police directed traffic at a number of highway sections, as workers scrambled to repair the damaged roads. Police said they had no idea when normal traffic conditions could resume. Torrential rains also lashed Sichuan's provincial capital Chengdu on Sunday afternoon. Many parts of the city were flooded, severely affecting traffic. Dozens of flights also remained grounded at the city's Shuangliu International Airport. Nearly half of Air China's 124 flights due to depart from Chengdu were delayed. The rain also forced Air China to redirect 20 flights bound for Chengdu. - Xinhuanet.
Rescuers in southern China are trying to reach more than 40 workers in two coal mines after one pit was flooded and the other caved in. They are venting explosive gas and pumping water from a mine in Guangxi region, where three miners died. Flooding has continued to hamper rescue work at the other mine in the neighbouring province of Guizhou. China's mines are the world's deadliest; more than 2,600 miners died in accidents in 2009 alone. Heavy rain was said to have caused the latest accidents. Emergency workers said water continued to rise inside the Niupeng mine in Pingtang County in Guizhou, Xinhua news agency reported. The accident there happened on Saturday morning, after which the coal mine officials confirmed 21 workers had been trapped. However, two more were declared missing a day later, Xinhua said. At the other mine in Guangxi, rescuers are digging into the shaft to reach 19 miners believed to be 390m (1,200 feet) under the ground. Xinhua said progress appeared to be slow, due to the build-up of explosive gas and flooding. China Central Television broadcast an interview with a miner who said he heard a loud explosion before the cave-in, which was believed to have killed the three miners. - BBC.

DELUGE: Floods Swamps 100 Villages & Over 2,000 Houses in India!

Hundreds of thousands of people in Bihar are living in fear after heavy rains caused several rivers to swell and flood over 100 villages, officials said Monday.

The Bagmati river breached its embankment in Muzaffarpur district, while the rising waters in the Gandak and Kosi rivers are also posing a serious threat. "Bagmati river breached its embankment near Basghatta village in Muzaffarpur, creating panic in dozens of villages as the flood waters entered their homes," said a disaster management department official. All the inundated villages are in the flood-prone districts of Muzaffarpur, Gopalganj, Purnia, Araria, Saharsa, Madhepura and Bagaha, officials said. Reports reaching here said road communication was snapped as water flooded many rural roads in the Katra block of Muzaffarpur. In Sitamarhi district, flood waters entered a Border Security Force (BSF) camp at Sonbarsa and forced security personnel to shift to a safer place.

The Kosi is posing a threat to its eastern embankment and the Gandak waters are also threatening a newly constructed embankment in Gopalganj district, an official of the disaster management department said. A water resource department official said the major rivers in these areas were swollen following heavy rains in the state and in the catchment areas of Nepal in the last few days. According to the Central Water Commission, the water level in major rivers - Kosi, Mahananda, Gandak, Budhi Gandak, Kamla Balan and Bagmati - is rising and flowing above the danger mark at some places. After two consecutive years of drought, the fear of floods is back in Bihar with incessant rains and heavy water discharge in the Kosi river from Nepal...

Reports suggested that the authorities have asked hundreds of people to shift to safer places due to the rising Kosi waters. The state government has asked engineers and district officials to keep a 24-hour vigil... In 2008, over three million people were rendered homeless in Bihar when the Kosi river breached its bank upstream in Nepal and changed course. It was said to be the worst flood in the state in 50 years.

DELUGE: Widespread Flooding in Borikhamxay and Vientiane, Laos!

Borikhan district in Borikhamxay province, central Laos, was under water again on Saturday, only a week after flooding first hit the district on June 24.

Flash flooding was reported over the weekend after a period of sustained heavy rain hit the northern provinces causing the Nam Xan River to burst its banks, inundating 31 of the 46 villages in Borikhan district. No deaths or injuries have been reported. Meanwhile, the Meteorology and Hydrology Department in Vientiane issued a flood warning on Saturday for the Xebangfay River, to keep villagers on alert and ready to move to higher ground if necessary. Authorities are also concerned about the rising water level in the Mekong which will prolong flooding in areas along its tributaries. If the Mekong rises to the same level as that of its flooded tributaries, the situation will worsen. Borikhan district Governor Mr Ken Lormany said if the Mekong continues to rise, flooding will not only occur in Borikhan but also in Paksan district, causing more damage.

“The villagers’ biggest need is for clean water, as most of the water delivery system has been damaged. Food, medicines and other basic needs are also needed,” he said. “We are mobilising funds from businesses, friends and the public to help victims.” District Deputy Governor Mr Kongsy Inthipaya said the first flooding occurred on June 24-27, triggered by tropical storm Haima, before subsiding for a few days before the river level rose again on Saturday. “I was warned there would be more rainfall that could mean flooding could occur any time, putting people’s lives at risk,” he said. Since the first floods hit the district, authorities have mobilised around 400 million kip to buy rice, clean water, medicines and other items to distribute to those in need, but more help is needed. The flooding has affected more than 23,000 people, causing hundreds of families to evacuate to higher places, some taking refuge in the homes of relatives or camping out in the district administrative office.

Mr Ken said the flooding has destroyed 11 billion kip worth of roads and bridges in the district. Some 1,000 hectares of rice fields and another 1,000 hectares of cassava have also been ruined. “The floodwater has destroyed our irrigation system worth 3 billion kip. Flooding has also destroyed 38 fish ponds and eight schools, as well as hospitals, latrines, water delivery systems and livestock,” he said. Homes, temples, roads, district offices and other places are now under water. Most villagers are without electricity and in urgent need of food supplies.

GEOLOGICAL UPHEAVAL: 100-Foot Sinkhole in Rainbow Beach?!

I am re-posting the following story to fulfill several requests from my readers and to highlight the substantive loss in strength and stiffness in the land, as a direct result of soil liquefaction, a precursory response to the applied stress from seismic tremors along the Pacific "Ring of Fire" and the ongoing geological upheaval on planet Earth.

A sink hole up to 100 feet long and 50 feet deep has opened up on a Sunshine Coast beach. The hole appeared at Inskip Point, Rainbow Beach, a coastal town in south-eastern Queensland, Australia, on Saturday night and continued to grow today.

A massive sink hole is swallowing up the beach at Inskip, north of Tin Can Bay. Campers have told The Courier-Mail the hole, which appeared about 11am, could be up to 100 feet deep. Camper Shane Hillhouse said four-wheel-drives had been travelling along the popular stretch of sand, near Inskip Peninsula, shortly before the hole appeared. "This has the potential to take the tip of Inskip Point with it – this is huge and on a scale I’ve never seen before," he said. "People are bringing chairs and sitting back to watch it in awe. "This is absolutely amazing – it’s almost at the tree line now." Mr Hillhouse said the sink hole had expanded dramatically since 11am. 

"It’s three times bigger than it was an hour ago," he said. "Chunks are falling out of the beach into nowhere. Where is the sand going? It’s just incredible." Another camper said sand was dropping 150m into the ocean, although the depth of the hole is unknown. "Sand is sinking in big sections," he said. No one is believed to have been injured. Gympie police duty officer Sergeant Vic Tipman said sink holes – which swallowed portions of beach as big as houses – were common at Inskip. "Normally it will be between Inskip Point and where the barge goes across," he said. "The sand just erodes from underneath the current and all of a sudden half the beach disappears. "You’ve got to be careful driving up there." Sergeant Tipman said it was only a matter of time before someone was injured. "The potential is always there," he said. "About once every two or three years a piece as big as a house or maybe two house blocks disappear in the sand. "It would be hundreds of metres wide. Big areas get washed out. What’s going to happen one day is Inskip Point is not going to be there anymore."

MONSOON DELUGE: Floods & Landslides kill 18 in Central Nepal!

Floods and landslides has hit a remote village in Nepal's western mountains, sweeping away homes and killing eighteen people. Rescue work was on in the remote village of Thumki in Kaski district following the landslide that swept away homes and buried eighteen people.

Floods and landslides triggered by heavy monsoon rains that began last week have killed at least 18 people in various parts of Nepal. On Sunday morning, three women and three children from a single family were killed when a landslide swept away their house in central Nepal. A rescue team of security personnel including Nepal Army members deployed in the incident site immediately. The rains have also damaged roads, obstructed travel, and inundated dozens of houses. Local officials have launched a massive rescue operation, clearing the highways obstructed by the landslide in various parts of the country. Landslides and floods kill scores every year in Nepal as more than 70 percent of the country is composed of hills and mountains. - All Headline News.
Floodwaters swept away the water pipeline in Padampokhari-1 today, depriving around 2,000 people from 400 families of piped water, Sitaram Thapa, chairman of a committee formed to draw the government’s attention towards flood victims problems, said. “Crusher industries and floods have polluted the Kukharenikhola, the other source of water for the people of Padampokhari. With the pipeline gone, we have no other source of potable water,” he lamented. - The Himalayan Times.

MYSTERY: Symbols of an Alien Sky, Man-Made or Natural Phenomena - Morphing & Glowing UFO Caught On Video over San Antonio, Texas?!

The following video of a morphing and glowing unidentified flying object (UFO) was seen flying over San Antonio, Texas. The footage was filmed on Sunday, 3rd July 2011 at 10:20 am.

As I was skywatching,looking west I notice a large glowing object that seemed to be traveling northwest high in altitude. This object was huge and did not seem to be an aircraft. So I began filming. When zooming in this unknown object appear to be glowing. Also, it appear to be morphing. This object was clearly no aircraft. As you can see on the video stills, this object seems to be emiting some kind of energy. While i was filming [the]unknown [object] began to glow extremely bright. It did not seem to reflect the sun's rays. It seemed to be glowing. I pan back to look for some kind of reference point. Unknown object was clearly traveling (used the roof top as a reference point). Clearly this glowing object was under some sort of control. UFO traveled in a northwestern direction going behind the roof tops, making it hard to keep in frame. I did not hear any noise coming from this unknown object. Clearly an unidentified flying object. This was an awesome sighting due to how this UFO seems to morph and [its] size... It seemed to be the size of an aircraft. This glowing object was clearly no aircraft, weather-balloon or satellite. - SAUFOTX. [Edited for clarity.]

EARTH CHANGES: Deforestation Rates in the Amazon Doubled in May!

Deforestation rates in the Amazon, the world’s biggest rain forest, more than doubled in May as Brazilian farmers become more confident they’ll be granted amnesty for illegal logging.

Almost 268 square kilometers (66,200 acres) of protected rain forest were cut down in May, up from 110 square kilometers a year ago, the National Institute for Space Research said in an e-mailed statement. Brazil lawmakers are considering a bill that alters its forestry code and would forgive farmers who illegally cleared trees. The possibility that the government may ease these restrictions is encouraging more logging, said Marcio Astrini, coordinator of forest campaigns for Greenpeace International’s Brazil unit. That would hamper international efforts to fight global warming by protecting trees that absorb greenhouse gases. “Brazil’s been reducing its deforestation for the last five years and this bill comes along and now it shoots up,” Astrini said yesterday by phone.

“There is only one reason why deforestation is increasing: it’s called the forestry code,” which may be changing. The bill was approved by Brazil’s lower house May 24 by a 410-63 vote. The Senate has not yet voted on it and President Dilma Rousseff has vowed to veto the legislation if it does pass. If the bill is approved in its current form, farmers won’t have to replant trees that were illegally cut prior to July 2008, an estimated 30 million hectares (74 million acres), according to a study by government research agency Instituto de Pesquisa Economica Aplicada. That’s about the size of the Philippines. Under Brazil’s current forestry code, penalties for illegal logging include fines and a requirement to replant trees.

MYSTERY: Symbols of an Alien Sky, Man-Made or Natural Phenomena - Summer of ET Contact over ECETI Ranch in Trout Lake, Washington?!

According to Jon Kelly of SecretMessageTV, extraterrestrial contact is occurring right now at the ECETI Ranch in Trout Lake in Washington in a series of appearances by unidentified flying objects (UFOs)

A new video shows a UFO that appeared to witnesses “as bright as a second sun” crossing the skies over the ECETI Ranch in Trout Lake Washington on the evening of Monday, June 27, 2011. The event was just one in a series of ongoing sightings that occurred during the previous four nights, captured in both visible light and digital night vision using a stereo camera imaging system. The video also reveals how lights on Mt. Adams are accompanied by mysterious flights over the peak, a UFO that disappears in mid-air under clear sky conditions, witnesses using lights to engage luminous vehicles, orbs of light swarming a low-flying UFO and incredible acceleration when what appears to be an interdimensional spaceship disappears from view. - Vancouver UFO Examiner.
