November 14, 2015 - IRELAND
- Several Glengormley homeowners are facing huge repair bills after what has been described as a "mini tornado" ripped through the Ballyhenry area on Thursday afternoon (November 12).

More than half a dozen houses in Ballyhenry Avenue and neighbouring Dorchester Crescent were badly damaged in the freak weather event, which local resident Gavin Robinson described as "a mini tornado."

Trees were blown over, garden fences were blown down and ridge tiles and slates were ripped off the roofs of a number of properties.

Despite the flying roof tiles and other debris, local people say no-one was injured during the incident.

Repair work is under way in the area, but the cost of fixing some of the hardest-hit homes could run to thousands of pounds. - Newtown Abbey Times.


EXTREME WEATHER: Climate Chaos - Huge Hailstones Smash Car Windows, Buildings In Nhlangano, Swaziland!

November 14, 2015 - SWAZILAND
- It appears that there might be hope for the much anticipated rainfall as Nhlangano and surrounding areas experienced a heavy downpour in the afternoon yesterday which lasted approximately 20 minutes.

The downside of it is that the rain was accompanied by strong winds and huge hailstones, which caused damage to property and vegetation.

The huge hailstones caused damage on rooftops, leaving gaping holes resulting in rain water leaking into buildings. It also shattered windows on buildings and motor vehicles.

Nhlangano residents ran helter-skelter as they searched for cover while motorists searched for safe places to park.

In some of the streets in the small southern town, vegetation, especially tree branches, were broken as a result of the strong wind.

Showers started pouring at around 3pm resulting in some shops and houses being flooded with water as the heavy downpour continued.

There was a lot of clearing to do after the rain.

In one of the shops at Zam Zam Mall, Silomoes Corporation, which is an internet cafe, the storm left untold damage.

Siphiwe Dube, who works of the internet cafe, said the storm caught them by complete surprise. She said it was a normal day and customers were going about their normal business when all of a sudden, they heard the sound of heavy hailstones hitting the rooftop, startling everyone in the process.

Dube, in an interview last night, said while they tried to make sense of what was happening, the hailstones ripped the ceiling apart and rain began to pour in.

According to dube, people outside in the streets were seen rushing to safety to escape injury.

She said they tried to remove the computers and photocopying machines to where they thought the rainwater would not reach.

"We were caught by surprise and as I speak (at 8:30pm) there is still a lot of water in the shop. I don't know if the computers and the other machines will function. We rushed to disconnect the cables when the water level rose inside the shop in fear of being electrocuted," she said. - Times of Swaziland.

OMEN: Plagues And Pestilences - Baby Born With Two Heads In Bangladesh?!

A baby with two heads has been born in Bangladesh.

November 14, 2015 - BANGLADESH
- Doctors at a Bangladesh hospital were treating a baby girl born with two heads on Thursday, medical officials and the newborn's father said.

The baby was born late Wednesday and is now being treated for breathing difficulties after being shifted to the intensive care unit of the country's largest hospital in Dhaka.

"When I saw my baby, I was awestruck. She has two fully developed heads. She is eating with two mouths and breathing with two noses," her father, Jamal Mia, said.

"Still, I thank Allah that she and the mother are now okay," Mia told AFP.

Abu Kawsar, owner of the Standard Hospital of Total Healthcare where the baby was born by Cesarean section, said initial tests showed she only has one set of vital organs.

"Except for having two heads, the newborn has the rest of her organs and limbs like a normal newborn," Kawsar told AFP.

Thousands of people thronged the hospital in Brahmanbaria, where she was born, some 120 kilometres (75 miles) east of Dhaka, after news spread of the "miracle newborn".

"The entire town poured into the clinic. There were thousands of people with some of them coming from the nearby villages," he said.

"It's good that the baby has been shifted to Dhaka. Otherwise, it would have been difficult for us to control the crowd."

Her father, Mia, a poor farm labourer, said he was concerned about how he would manage to care for the baby if extra expenses were needed.

"I feel sad for her. She has been born to a poor man. I don't have money to even properly treat her mother," he said.

A baby was also born in Bangladesh with two heads in 2008 but later died. - MyWave.


NEW WORLD DISORDER: Societal Collapse And Civilizations Unraveling - Pope Francis Calls Paris Attacks Part Of "Piecemeal World War 3"!

November 14, 2015 - VATICAN CITY - The acts of terrorism which took place in Paris Friday night are the latest part in what Pope Francis has called a “piecemeal World War III,” describing the attacks as “inhuman.”

“There is no justification for these things,” the pontiff said in a phone interview Saturday with TV 2000, the official broadcasting station for the Italian Bishops Conference.

Speaking in response to the Nov. 13 attacks, which are the deadliest acts of violence the city has seen since the World War II, the Pope said he is “moved and pained” by what happened, and expressed his closeness to those affected by the tragedy.

“I am close to the people of France, to the families of the victims, and I am praying for all of them,” he said.

“These things are hard to understand,” he said, adding that he “loves France very much.”

At least 128 people are confirmed dead and more than 180 wounded in terrorist attacks which targeted bars, restaurants, a concert hall, and a football stadium in the heart of Paris on Nov. 13. Around 80 people are listed in critical condition, according to the BBC.

The deadliest attack came when militants overtook the Bataclan concert hall, in which at least 82 people were killed, after the terrorists had seized dozens of hostages.

Eyewitnesses reported  hearing the terrorists cry out “Allahu Akbar!” – Arabic for “God is Great!” The terrorists carried out the siege with suicide bombs and semi-automatic weapons. Police have said all eight attackers are dead.

In the wake of the attacks, Paris archbishop Cardinal AndrĂ© Vingt-Trois in a Nov. 14 statement appealed for the grace to be “artisans of peace.” He stressed that “we must never despair of peace if we are to build justice.

“Faced with the violence of men,” he said,  “we can receive the grace of a steadfast heart without hate.” The French prelate called for people to not give in to panic or hatred.

“This morning I pray and I invite the Catholics of Paris to pray for those who were killed yesterday and for their families,” Cardinal AndrĂ© Vingt-Trois continued. He also called for prayers for the injured, those working to help those affected by the crisis, and the nation's leaders in order that they “remain together in unity and peace of heart.”

"We ask for the grace to be artisans of peace. We must never despair of peace, if you justice," he said.

The BBC reports that French president Francois Hollande has called the attacks “an act of war” by ISIS.

The French president declared a nationwide state of emergency soon after the rampage began and closed the country's borders. Parisians were urged to stay in doors.

This is the second and deadlier of two sieges against Paris by Islamic terrorists in 2015. 12 people were killed on Jan. 7 when Islamic terrorists stormed the headquarters of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

Updated: Nov. 14, 2015 at 3:30pm

Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, sent a telegram to Cardinal Vingt-Trois on behalf of Pope Francis, assuring the archbishop of Paris of his prayers for those affected by “horrific terrorist attacks.”

“The Holy Father vigorously condemns violence, which cannot solve anything,” the telegram reads, according to Vatican Radio's translation of the message which was originally written in French.

“He asks God to inspire thoughts of peace and solidarity in all and to impart on families in this trial and on all of the French people, the abundance of His Blessings.”

The telegram by saying the Pope prays that God might “welcome the victims into the peace of His light and bring comfort and hope to the injured and their families,” and assured his “spiritual closeness” to the French people. - CNA.

- The 78-foot long blue whale that washed up on the Oregon Coast is the first in more than a century, researchers from the Oregon State University Marine Mammal Institute said… It’s still unclear how the whale died, but [Bruce Mate from the OSU Marine Mammal Institute] said one clue is it’s size: it weighed less than 100 tons, which is more typical for blue whales. “It eats things that are no longer than 2 inches long: krill. And that’s why this animal is probably on the beach because that’s been in short supply last summer and again this summer,” Mate said. (emphasis added), Nov 9, 2015 - KVAL.

The massive marine mammal is very rare in Oregon, a state natural resources specialist said. “We don’t usually see blue whales this close in,” said Calum Stevenson, ocean shores specialist with the state Parks and Recreation Department. “They are not even on our radar for Whale Watch because they are so uncommon The blubber layer was emaciated4 inches or less,” compared with up to 12 inches in a healthy blue whale, Stevenson said.

A rare blue whale washed up along the Oregon coast… 100 tons and measuring 78 feet long… Blue whales are the largest animals to inhabit the Earth and are considered an endangered species… The appearance of a whale of this size is unprecedented in the area… Nov 8, 2015 - NY Daily News.

Bruce Mate, who serves as marine mammal director at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center, said this is the first time he’s seen a blue whale on Oregon beaches. He’s been doing research in the state since 1968 Mate said the environment may have also played a role Mate described the whale as emaciated and said it had a very sick blubber layer.” Nov 5, 2015 - OPB.

Blue whales generally stay away from the coast, making the event extremely rare. They feed solely on krill, Bruce Mate, the marine mammal director at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center, tells KOIN. I think we are going to see more of this,” he says. Most of the whales Mate has been tracking for the past two years have not been doing well. Nov 6, 2015 - KOIN.

“The very first blue whale to wash up on the Oregon coast… Animal experts say they are still looking into the cause of death… they do say many sea creatures are being affected by weather patterns rights now… [it] is killing off the krill population, which is what these animals eat.” Nov 6, 2015 - KDRV transcript.

The organs are being removed by Mate’s team and taken back to the lab in Newport to be studied… “The whale was very emaciated when it washed up” [Calum Stevenson of Oregon Parks and Recreation] said. “We don’t know what killed it — warming water from El Nino, disease, who knows.” Nov 10, 2015 - Curry Coastal Pilot.

MONUMENTAL WEATHER ANOMALIES & GEOLOGICAL UPHEAVALS: Rare Wind-Driven Seiche Develops At Lake Erie Causes 7-FOOT Water Rise - Phenomenon Could Have Wiped Out Sections Of Buffalo, New York?!

November 14, 2015 - LAKE ERIE, UNITED STATES
- A natural disaster of epic proportions has been in-progress for about three hours so far at Lake Erie and there's no sign of it stopping anytime soon.  The storm that caused spectacular waves on Lake Michigan and some minor lakeshore flooding also sent Lake Erie's water listing like a boat.

The phenomenon is called a seiche.

Data from the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory shows the water level at Buffalo increased about 7 1/2 feet from 5 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 12 to 3 p.m. the same day.

A rare wind-driven  "Seiche" is taking place, wherein the wind is so fierce and sustained, it is blowing the entire body of lake water from west-to-east causing the natural sea level at the west end of Lake Erie to DROP 6 feet and the natural sea level at the east end to rise more than 7 feet!

Massive flooding is now taking place at the east end of Lake Erie, with inundating amounts of water flowing out of the lake onto nearby shore roads, causing those roads to become impassable.  The seiche is already more than 7 feet tall and it continues to rise, spelling doom for many local residents, and perhaps entire sections of the city of Buffalo, New York.  The graphics below explain how a Seiche occurs:

In the Twitter video below, Dave Mercer posted this action of Lake Erie just south of Buffalo from Thursday's storm:

Water charts showing the LIVE water levels at both ends of Lake Erie tell the story quite graphically.

At Toledo, Ohio on the western shore of Lake Erie where the water level dropped by more than 6 feet suddenly today:

At Buffalo, NY, hundreds of miles to the east, the water level has suddenly risen by more than SEVEN FEET today, and continues to rise!

No one knows how long this wind-driven water will continue to rise, but Buffalo, NY and its surrounding towns could see vast portions of their communities literally wiped out -- without any warning -- within hours from now. - SS95 | MLIVE.
