Ground In Los Angeles Moving Sideways!

A bizarre event took place in Los Angeles, CA Saturday (11/21/15), as the ground began moving sideways in slow-motion, and rising 15-feet in a mere 4-hours. The roads in some areas were destroyed, which took down utility poles and wrecked infrastructure. The two mile stretch of Vasquez Canyon Road was closed until further notice. “It is important to note that, according to the US Geological Survey, no earthquakes have taken place during this time, to account for this type of land deformation. About 3 hours later [began 12:08pm], at 3:36 PM, the road had become clearly deformed from ground movement; yet there is...

DOOM at Lake Erie; Rare wind-driven Seiche has developed; may wipe out sections of Buffalo, NY

A natural disaster of epic proportions has been in-progress at Lake Erie today.  During the first three hours and at the time of this writing there was no sign of it stopping.  A rare wind-driven “Seiche” is taking place.  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! A seiche occurs when strong winds push the surface water. With a...

The Mega Hurricane That NEVER Was

In the cross-hairs of Hurricane Patricia, Mexico’s Pacific coast was expecting the worst this past Saturday. Reported to potentially be the most powerful tropical cyclone ever measured in the Western Hemisphere, Patricia’s maximum sustained winds were officially registered at an unprecedented 200 mph (320 kph). Bringing with it such catastrophic torrents, a deadly storm surge, and formidable flood threat, the expected Category 5 hurricane was set to unleash widespread destruction. As is typically the case, media outlets and government spokespersons urged public in the area to brace themselves, and prepare for the worst. Evacuating both visitors and residents trapped within...

The organization’s focus is on documenting the presence of geoengineering operations and its dangers. The goal is to educate the public to stop climate engineering before our health and environment are irreversibly damaged....

East Coast Braces for Flooding as Tropical Storm Brews in Atlantic

East Coast Braces for Flooding as Tropical Storm Brews in Atlantic (Atlantic Ocean) A 125-mile-wide tropical storm is escalating in the Atlantic, as weather experts expect it to upgrade to a full-blown hurricane over the next 24 hours. Tropical storm Joaquin is currently at 70 mph (5 mph increase over past 4 hours) and has already jumped to 990 millibars in barometric pressure, a tell-tale sign of increasing windspeeds to come. Though the storm is expected to weaken over the weekend, eastern-coastal areas of the United States from North Carolina to New England are bracing for a potential impact. Some models...

California Lake Vanishes Overnight

Northern California Reservoir Vanishes Overnight The $3.5 million project to save Folsom Lake sits on the horizon while a Northern California reservoir runs dry overnight, killing thousands of fish and leaving residents baffled.

NASA Reveals ‘California Wildfire’ Aftermath Satellite Imagery

California Wildfires: Aftermath from NASA Viewpoint As California wildfires are raging, the damage inflicted upon the terrain is well documented and abundantly apparent. What may not seem so obvious is the sheer magnitude of damage left behind on the scorched earth after the flames are contained. To that end, NASA has recently posted satellite imagery of scars left behind by the intense blazes. We’ve long known that enormous fires are visible from space, but these images reveal that the aftermath upon the landscape is notably distinguishable from our planet’s outer orbit. Origin of NASA Images The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured false-color view of the...

Alert: USGS says, ‘Hawaiian Volcano Mauna Loa Activity Growing’

Alert: USGS – Hawaiian Volcano Mauna Loa is Growing in Activity Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) have elevated the Volcano Alert Level for Mauna Loa from NORMAL to ADVISORY, on a color scale this essentially means moving from GREEN to YELLOW. The change indicates that the volcano is showing signs of unrest that are above known background levels, but it does not mean that a Mauna Loa eruption is imminent or certain, according to the USGS. According to the USGS website, “HVO’s seismic stations have recorded elevated rates of shallow, small-magnitude earthquakes beneath the summit, upper...
