MASS FISH DIE-OFF: Abalone & Shell Fish Along Sonoma Coast?!

“In 28 years of diving up here, I have never seen anything like this.”

A recent explosion of plankton off the Sonoma Coast has turned lethal for abalone and other shell fish.

White meat from the prized sea snails has been washing up on area beaches for more than a week, sending wafts of rotting flesh over bluffs, and dismaying those who consider themselves stewards of the ocean. “It's like going up to an old growth forest and then coming back and it's been clear cut,” said Matt Mattison, an abalone diver from Monte Rio, who was stunned by the extent of the die-off near Fort Ross on Monday. “In 28 years of diving up here, I have never seen anything like this.”

State scientists say the destruction appears to be the result of a plankton bloom that began toward the end of August and is now dissipating. Such red tides are common occurrences, named for the rusty, murky tinge they give the water. The blooms feed on periodic upwellings of nutrient-rich cold water from the ocean's depths. Generally, the blooms pass without major harm to abalone. But the most recent red tide stuck during a stretch of unusually calm ocean conditions, which kept the plankton densely packed, said Ian Taniguchi, senior biologist with the California Department of Fish and Game.

PLANETARY TREMORS: Tension Building Towards A Mega-Quake!

Have a look at closely at the following images, taken from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Global Incident Map (Click on images for larger view).

In an earlier piece, I indicated that the entire rim of the Pacific seems to be undergoing pressure changes, whether from either continental drift and/or plate tectonics, and that this will ultimately result in massive eruptions and convulsions soon. Again, the most vulnerable areas seems to be the Aleutian Islands in Alaska; the states of California, Virginia, Washington, Oregon and Colorado in the United States; the Sumatra region of Indonesia, Vanuatu, Chile, the Puerto Rico region and Tonga. In addition, the European-Mediterranean regions must also be noted, as well, given the recent developments in Italy, Turkey and the Netherlands. These countries and states often have several small tremors or seismic swarms per week, with the possibility of a large-scale quake, that can cause massive damage and fatalities, increasing exponentially.

EARTH CHANGES: Thunderstorms Collapse A 500-Ton Crane?!

A 500-ton crane doing repair work collapsed Wednesday at the Washington National Cathedral amid thunderstorms and driving rain, damaging at least one nearby building and several vehicles but sparing the church.

A 500-foot crane performing cleanup work at the National Cathedral fell over Wednesday, damaging at least one building and several vehicles near the Cathedral. Reports came in of the collapse around 11 a.m., WRC reported. Richard Weinberg, a spokesperson for the Cathedral, told News4 the crane, positioned on the south side of the church, crashed into an adjoining building. The building, called the Herb House, had a portion of its roof ripped off. Fire officials said the Cathedral's main structure was not damaged. The operator of the crane was inside the cab at the base when the accident happened. Authorities said immediately before it flipped, the crane's arm, extended approximately 550 feet, had just deposited material on the Cathedral roof. While rotating, the equipment's balance upset, and the crane came crashing down into an area between the roadway and the church itself. The crane's operator was reportedly shaken, but able to walk away from the crash. He was being evaluated by paramedics. No other injuries were reported. - MSNBC.

EARTH CHANGES: Idaho Wildfire Forces Mass Evacuations!

A 15,000-acre wildfire in forested peaks in Idaho has forced the evacuation of 100 people and halted construction work on a planned strategic metal mine, officials said on Wednesday.

Nearly 600 firefighters battled the lightning-caused blaze, which has burned largely unchecked for two weeks in steep, rugged terrain littered with beetle-killed lodgepole pines in the Salmon-Challis National Forest in east-central Idaho. Salmon, Idaho, a town of 3,100 people, lies to the northeast of the blaze. Fire crews on Wednesday worked to aid ranchers removing cattle from grazing allotments threatened by the blaze as some property owners scrambled to protect structures and truck out belongings. "I've been up all night; it's been a frustrating experience," said Alison Steen, whose family owns acreage wedged between the Salmon River and the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. The evacuation centered on outlying cabins, a U.S. Forest Service field office and the Idaho Cobalt Project, a mine due next year to begin yielding cobalt, a metal in high demand for rechargeable hybrid car batteries, jet turbines and artificial hips. - Reuters.

EARTH CHANGES: THESIS/ANTI-THESIS & SYNTHESIS - United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon' - We Are Running Out Of Time'?!!!

In a previous article on this blog, I asked whether the cataclysmic chaos and imminent possibilities of realizing global extinction from Earth changes, would eventually be syncretized by the arrival of extraterrestrials as our saviors. Several months ago, the now deceased former NORAD officer Stanley A. Fulham, predicted that a Council of 8 extraterrestrial civilizations will appear in 2014 at the United Nation's General Assembly to formally introduce and implement plans to cleanup the atmosphere of our planet and institute a new world order of governance.

Today, the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, in a pretextual move that will ultimately lead to the justification for these alien saviors, said that urgent action was needed on climate change, pointing to the famine in the Horn of Africa and devastating floods in northern Australia as examples of the suffering caused by global warming.

Ban lashed out at climate change skeptics during a speech at the University of Sydney, arguing that science has proven climate change is real. Ban is in Australia for a series of meetings following his attendance at an annual forum of South Pacific island leaders in New Zealand earlier this week. He also made stops in the Solomon Islands and Kiribati, low-lying South Pacific island nations threatened by rising sea levels. "Watching this high tide standing on the shore of Kiribati, I said, 'High tide shows it's high time to act,'" Ban said. "We are running out of time." Ban has repeatedly highlighted the issue of climate change during his South Pacific tour, which comes ahead of a major climate summit in Durban, South Africa, in November.

Delegates from 193 nations will try to hammer out a global agreement to curb emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases that scientists say are behind climate change. Ban dismissed accusations that previous summits haven't resulted in any measurable changes, pointing to the 2010 meeting in Cancun, Mexico, where countries agreed to try to keep the global average temperature from rising 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above preindustrial levels. Scientists say there could be a severe impact on agriculture, sea levels, water resources and human health were the temperature to rise more than that. Drought and conflict in the Horn of Africa have left millions of lives at risk, and extreme weather events such as severe flooding that devastated northern Australia earlier this year will only grow more frequent as climate change accelerates, Ban warned. "This is a global race to save the planet," he said.

THE DELUGE: Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers Leads To Major Flooding in Pennsylvania & New York, Causing Mass Evacuations!

"...there's nobody living because there's no homes to live in."

Officials in northeastern Pennsylvania called for a mandatory evacuation of more than 100,000 residents living along the Susquehanna River on Thursday due to expected flooding. The area was inundated in the historic Agnes flood of 1972.

Luzerne County Management Agency official Frank Lasiewicki told The Associated Press Thursday the river is projected to crest at 41 feet between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Thursday – the same height as the levee system protecting riverfront communities including Wilkes-Barre and Kingston. Residents were ordered to leave by 4 p.m. Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton said residents should prepare for an extended evacuation of 72 hours and advised them to take clothing, food and prescription medicine. He also asked city businesses to close their doors by noon. The evacuations come as the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee dumped heavy rain and caused havoc around the Northeast on Thursday, bringing floods that cut off major highways and caused some schools to open late or not at all. Flood watches and warnings were in effect from Maryland to New England. Roads and highways were closed around the region. In Philadelphia, flooding and a rock slide closed the eastbound lanes of the Schuylkill Expressway, a major artery into the city, and it could take hours for the road to reopen. In New York, the Thruway Authority expected Thursday to close a 105-mile stretch of Interstate 90 where it runs along the Mohawk River, which had overflowed its banks in some areas. It's the state's most heavily traveled east-west highway.

In eastern New York, thousands of people were expected to evacuate the flood-battered Binghamton area Thursday, and some schools were closed in the surrounding area. Emergency management officials in Broome County ordered additional evacuations early Thursday for Binghamton neighborhoods near where the Susquehanna and Chenango rivers converge. Mandatory evacuation orders were also issued for the neighboring villages. In all, some 10,000 residents in the county were under mandatory evacuation, officials said. Two rain-related deaths were reported in Pennsylvania. Police in Derry Township said a man who was removing water from his basement was killed when the house's foundation collapsed, and a motorist trapped in a vehicle drowned early Thursday morning in Elizabeth Township, in Lancaster County. "Now it's getting on my last nerves," said Carol Slater, 53, of Huntersfield, N.Y., on the northern edge of New York's Catskill Mountains and just outside of hard-hit Prattsville. The National Weather Service predicted rain would continue to fall heavily across the mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states through Thursday with anywhere from 4 to 7 more inches falling and up to 10 inches in isolated pockets. In Pennsylvania, rain set off flash flooding across a wide swath of the state, shutting down roads, closing some schools and forcing evacuations. "The same areas are getting hit repeatedly," by rain, said Larry Nierenberg, a national weather service spokesman who monitors an area that includes Greater Philadelphia and most of New Jersey. A bridge spanning the Delaware River between New Hope, Bucks County and Lambertville, N.J., closed Thursday morning after flood waters carried debris down river and into the first span. In New York, Prattsville was cut off on Wednesday afternoon, its main roads covered with water as public works crews tried to dredge the creeks to alleviate the flooding. Trash bins stood in the mud-caked streets to collect debris left by Irene and the wreckage of houses destroyed by the earlier storm still dotted the area. Heavy rain fell, and residents were ready to evacuate as the Schoharie Creek escaped its banks and smaller streams showed significant flooding. "Businesses and residential areas were devastated before," Wayne Speenburgh, chairman of the Greene County Legislature, said of Prattsville. "Downtown, there's nobody living because there's no homes to live in."

MONUMENTAL EARTH CHANGES: A New Atlantis By 2030 - Thailand Sinking and Flooding, Affecting The Lives Of Millions Of People?!

The death toll as a result of widespread flooding and land subsidence in various parts of Thailand is escalating, as the remains of Tropical Storm Nock-Ten or Juaning caused serious flooding, flash floods, mudslides and landslides; affecting the lives of over 1.13 million households or about 3.87 million people in 36 provinces.

Among the pressing challenges facing the new government of Thailand, brought to power by the 3 July elections, is the inescapable fact that Bangkok is steadily sinking. The gloomiest forecasts suggest parts of the Thai capital may be underwater by 2030, but experts are also critical of the lack of any clear policy to prevent impending disaster. Several factors – climate change, rising sea level, coastal erosion, shifting clay soil – are threatening the great city on the Chao Phraya delta, founded in April 1782 by the first monarch belonging to the Chakri dynasty, still ruling today. The population has greatly increased, with about 10 million people now living in the city and its suburbs. Even the weight of the skyscrapers, constantly on the rise in a conurbation in the throes of perpetual change, is contributing to Bangkok's gradual immersion. Much of the metropolis is now below sea level and the ground is subsiding by 1.5 to 5cm a year. In the medium to long term more than 1m buildings, 90% of which are residential, are under threat from the rising sea level. In due course the ground floors of buildings could be awash with 10cm of water for part of the year, according to the Asian Institute of Technology. In the port of Samunt Prakan, about 15 km downstream from the capital, the residents of detached houses along the river already spend several months a year up to their ankles in water. A joint report published in December by the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank and Japan's International Co-operation Agency highlighted the threat from climate change to three Asian mega-cities: Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, and Manila. Illegal tapping of groundwater is one of the causes of the capital's misfortunes, according to Jan Bojo, a World Bank expert based there. Not all the specialists endorse this view, but they do agree the situation is bound to deteriorate over the next few years. Smith Dharmasaroja, the head of the National Disaster Warning Centre, is predicting that by 2100 Bangkok will have become a new Atlantis. However gloomy this may seem, Dharmasaroja's forecasts are taken seriously. In the 1990s he predicted the fearful tsunami which devastated countries round the Indian Ocean in 2004. Dharmasaroja maintains that "no decision has been taken" at government level "to stop the problem". And, he adds, if nothing is done Bangkok could be underwater by 2030. - The Guardian.

Flooding continues to wreak havoc in eight provinces, including Phichit, where at least 47 schools were shut down out of concerns for their students' safety. The flood-related death toll across the country yesterday stood at 55, according to the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department (DPMD). The eight provinces are Phichit, Sukhothai, Phitsanulok, Nakhon Sawan, Ayutthaya, Angthong, Chai Nat and Ubon Ratchathani. In Phichit alone, as many as 11 deaths were reported. Police found the latest victim in Phichit's Taphan Hin district at 6am yesterday. Weerapat Sukkhum, 22, apparently drowned in the floodwater. Dr Surasen Thangthong, who heads Phichit's Primary Education Service Area 1 Office, said 20 schools under his jurisdiction were closed indefinitely in the wake of severe flooding. "It's not possible for children to go to the heavily flooded schools," he said. In Phichit's Primary Education Service Area 2, 27 schools suspended classes indefinitely. According to Phichit's chief of disaster prevention and mitigation, Sanlek Kamjai, floods have affected more than 100,000 people in the province. Up to 70 per cent of the province's farmland - or about 140,000 rai - have been damaged. "Floods have raged on for about three weeks already," Sanlek said. "Judging by the current situation, it will likely take at least one month for the floodwater to completely subside." In Phitsanulok, floods have damaged 321,001 rai of farmland and affected 77,242 people. Three deaths have been reported, and the Public Health Ministry has found that up to 29 flood victims in Phitsanulok had become suicidal. DPMD deputy director-general Chatpong Chatphut said flooding had likely ravaged more than 3.37 million rai of farmland. "Up to 394,327 people are now flood victims," he said. The House of Representatives yesterday voted to set up an ad-hoc committee on flood prevention and solutions. The committee was tasked with studying how to prevent flooding and drought. It was expected to complete the study within 60 days. As run-off water from upriver provinces is now flowing down the Chao Phraya River, downstream provinces such as Angthong and Pathum Thani have started feeling the effects. In Anthong, some corners in Mueang and Pa Moke districts were inundated. In Pathum Thani's Sam Khok district, the Bang Toei Market was under 20cm of water yesterday. - Thailand Teaching Asia.
Unusually cold, damp weather led to a large storm in the southern provinces of Thailand during the past few days has created severe flooding. Traffic delays, airport closures. At least 21 dead, many missing and nearly 1.5 million tourists isolation, food deprivation and necessities. The government has come to the aid planes. According to the Office of Disaster Affairs Ministry of Thailand, the 63 districts of the southern provinces into serious flooding, namely Nakhon Si Thammarat, Surat Thani, Chumphon, Phang Nga, Ranong , Trang, Krabi and Phatthalung. As of Friday was rainy, there are about 970,000 people in 2763 commune villages completely isolated from external sources. Currently, the highway leading to Koh Samui airport is also being submerged in floodwaters. Widespread power outages, Koh Samui airport and some airport was closed. Koh Samui Airport canceled 50 more flights, more than 2,000 tourists stranded in Bangkok airport. Thai Deputy Prime Minister Suthep said the bad weather makes rescue teams face many difficulties in the payment of hospital food and medicine to victims of the storm. Originally expected flooding within 1 -2 days, but up to now, over a week, but rain is not constant. Thai army has carried out rescue and aid to residents in flooded areas. Thai Prime Minister Abhisit scheduled yesterday to fly to visit the flood, but the plane could not land should have to go by road. A British tourists in Krabi are stuck on that message, flooding everywhere, do not know how to return to Bangkok, he said, "Recess has become a nightmare." Rain storms are expected to last for several days, the consequences could be even worse with the possibility of landslides in some areas. The government is very interested in the risk of landslides and began evacuating residents. Northern countries also experienced unusually cold weather, the temperature is only about 7.5 degrees C, killing more than 2000 cattle in the region. - Tin Tuc. (Translated).

GREAT DELUGE: Floods Kills 132 in Pakistan, Millions Homeless!

Millions are without shelter and at least 132 have died, following heavy monsoon rain and flooding in southern Pakistan.

Millions of people in Pakistan have been forced from their homes by a tide of floodwater after five days of heavy monsoon rains. The authorities said the country is once again on the brink of a national "calamity" and that the flooding is comparable to a similar disaster in 2010. In flooding last year, 2,000 people were killed and 11 million lost their homes. The worst affected area is Sindh in the south of Pakistan. Provincial chief minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah said more than five million people have been made homeless and thousands of villages have been swallowed up by the rising waters. It is now a desperate time for the displaced as they struggle to find higher ground to build shelter and stay safe. According to a recent UN report, the floods last year were the worst in history and the total losses exceeded those of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Pakistan earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Even after the waters recede, it is thought the crisis could continue - as many of this year's crops have been wiped away. Pakistan's National Disaster Management Authority said at least 132 people have been killed - but that number was expected to rise.

FIRE IN THE SKY: Huge Fireballs Drop in Odessa, Ukraine?!

Here are two interesting reports coming out of the Odessa region in Ukraine, concerning a huge meteorite and fireball that descended from the sky on September 1st and 6th, respectively. Considering what is happening on the Sun and what we have been hearing lately about comets, asteriods and orbitals of brown dwarf stars; then it might be advisable to take these stories quite seriously.

September 1st.
In the Odessa region dropped a huge meteorite. September 1 at 21.30 in the adjacent village Nikolaevka villages in the Odessa region (bordering Mykolayiv) explosion and felt the concussion of the earth! Those who saw the fireball and the subsequent train him, realized that the meteorite fell, and, apparently, is not small! Vladimir Gritsai, promptly inform about the incident, "Ukraine abnormal," says the residents of nearby villages surveyed Strukova, Viktorovka and Berezovka and they said the fall from the sky a bright ball and the intended impact area - a village Nikolaevka. Also, according to rumors, the police on the alleged crash site put up a cordon. "I myself, unfortunately, was unable to find a meteorite, or follow the unfolding events - sorry, Vladimir - pursed work. Nor is it clear why the news went unnoticed. Meteorite, it seems, is not small, and there is an event not so much ". - Firtka. (Translated.)
September 6th.
In the Odessa region a huge fire ball cut through the whole sky. Witnesses were afraid of aliens, and scientists are looking at the crash meteorite. Odesa residents observed an unusual phenomenon in the night sky - fire a bullet cut through all the sky and rolled to the ground. A few seconds later people heard a strong rumble and felt the earth zadvyhtila. The fall of the heavenly body seen almost all the inhabitants of Mykolayiv region, and this - more than ten thousand people. In some panic began to call emergency services. Witnesses suggested that the burning aircraft or UFO. "I thought that someone shot a rocket failed in me by the gate and thought that falls on my house. And look sweat - something from the sky so under the bias goes. Large, round such a layer, followed by polyhaye fiery tail. I just in the head - the war, aliens, flaming plane crashes "- admitted pensioner Vasily Kharkov. In place of the likely fall in the unknown object came to scientists, astronomers. Experts are certain that people have seen the so-called bolidne phenomenon - when it flies into the air and a meteorite, dohoryayuchy leaves fiery tail. "To talk about the fall I would not have stood, though the phenomenon was accompanied by sound effects - a very good indication that probably fell a little  piece of meteoric bodies. Iron, iron-stone, weighing 10 kilos" - said the scientist astronomer Yuri Horbanov. This happened in the same area in 1946. Then on the ground have found a meteorite weighing 40 kg. Space rock looking for this time, but experts have examined  more than two hundred square kilometers. - TCH. (Translated.)

GLOBAL VOLCANISM: 800 Meter High Ash Cloud at Dukono Volcano!

The Dukono volcano, in the North Halmahera regency of Indonesia, shows an activity increase on September 6, when volcanic ash clouds as high as 800 meters was seen in the sky.

The capital town of the Halmahera regency lies at the port of Tobelo, approx. 15 km from the volcano (population approx. 15,000). Residents were asked to evacuate at least about two kilometers from the foot of the volcano. The volcano observation post at Mount Dukono, told the press that dozens of volcanic earthquakes occurred every day. The eruption can be seen from Ternate, and island and biggest city in the area (has also an airport). The volcano is currently in PVMBG Alert status III (local sources) although the official PVMBG site is still showing a II alert status (alert status range from 1 to IV). North Halmehara is part of the province of North Maluku (Moluccas).

Activity of the volcano as written in our report of the first half of August : According to a news article, activity at Dukono has continued to increase. On 11 August ash explosions were audible within a radius of about 7 km from the base of the volcano. Ash was ejected as high as 1 km above the crater, producing plumes that drifted E and S, and also approached Tobelo City (14 km ENE). Seismographs at the Dukono observation post recorded more than 100 eruption earthquakes. Based on analyses of satellite imagery, the Darwin VAAC reported that on 11 and 14 August ash plumes rose to an altitude of 3 km (10,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted 93 km NW.

Reports from this remote volcano in northernmost Halmahera are rare, but Dukono has been one of Indonesia’s most active volcanoes. More-or-less continuous explosive eruptions, sometimes accompanied by lava flows, occurred from 1933 until at least the mid-1990s, when routine observations were curtailed. During a major eruption in 1550, a lava flow filled in the strait between Halmahera and the north-flank cone of Gunung Mamuya. Dukono is a complex volcano presenting a broad, low profile with multiple summit peaks and overlapping craters. Malupang Wariang, 1 km SW of Dukono’s summit crater complex, contains a 700 x 570 m crater that has also been active during historical time
