there just seems to be so many of these going off lately...

another volcano just erupted...

Volcano erupts near Guatemala City

By Gustavo Valdes, CNN
May 28, 2010 -- Updated 0601 GMT (1401 HKT)


(CNN) -- A volcanic eruption covered the Guatemalan capital with ash Thursday evening, prompting evacuations and shutting down the city's international airport, government officials said.

Pacaya volcano, located about 15 miles (25 km) south of Guatemala City, began erupting around 7 p.m. (9 p.m. ET).
At least 1,800 people have been placed in shelters after four villages near the volcano were evacuated, said David de Leon, spokesman for the national disaster commission.

PLAGUES, QUAKES, Etc * END OF THE WORLD

Is there a reason why the world is being hit with so many plagues lately?
Could someone be trying to tell us something?
In case you haven't noticed, some of the recent plagues around the globe have been rather "Biblical" in nature.

No, it isn't the end of the world as we know it just yet, but there has been a rash of really bizarre plagues all over the world in recent days.
There have been reports of massive outbreaks of frogs, locusts and rats.
Famine and drought are threatening tens of millions of people.
Unprecedented flooding has been devastating communities all over the globe, and the startling increase in earthquakes and volcanic activity have many people wondering exactly what in the world is going on.

Are these things happening because we are getting closer to 2012?
Could God be behind all of these plagues? Is there some other explanation? Well, what can't be denied is that things are starting to get really, really weird out there lately.

Of course most people are focused on the massive disaster in the Gulf of Mexico right now. The fact that all the oil in the Gulf is turning the waters there red is drawing a lot of attention. But that is not the only really strange plague that is happening in the world right now....

Frogs

In Turkey, the sudden influx of hundreds of thousands of frogs that forced authorities in neighboring Greece to close down a major highway is being seen by locals as a possible sign that a devastating earthquake may strike soon.

Locusts

Australian farmers are bracing themselves for what is being called the most devastating locust plague in almost 40 years.

Scientists in the United States are warning that the worst grasshopper outbreak in decades may sweep across the western states this summer.

Rats And Mice

A gigantic plague of rats is gobbling up vast portions of grasslands in north China.

Farmers are warning that much more needs to be done to cope with a terrible mouse plague in some agricultural areas of south Australia.

Famine

In Niger alone, more than half the population is in desperate need of food, and both Niger and neighboring Chad have officially declared states of emergency.

According to the aid organization Save The Children, one out of every eight children under the age of five in the African country of Niger is likely to die in the next month unless they get immediate assistance.

Drought

Drought warnings have been issued across the U.K. as the country suffers its driest start to the year in 46 years.

The horrifc drought in West Africa is making life incredibly difficult for tens of millions of people.

The ongoing drought in the state of Texas continues to get even worse.

Floods

Unusually heavy flooding in China has killed at least 155 people and has forced more than 1 million Chinese to flee their homes as some areas reached their highest water levels in more than a decade.

Unprecedented flooding has forced the evacuation of more than 600,000 people in the Asian nation of Sri Lanka.

Tens of thousands of people were displaced after torrential rains caused heavy flooding in the southern Philippines.

20 people recently died during a horrible flash flood at a popular rural campground in Arkansas.

A while back, massive storms dumped nearly 20 inches of rain on many areas of the southeast United States, killing at least 27 people and putting many areas of Nashville, Tennessee totally under water. In fact, it is being reported that the damage to the city of Nashville alone was approximately a billion dollars.

Volcanoes

A volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula has shown signs of intensified activity and is throwing clouds of smoke into the air to a height of at least 1,000 meters.

The Philippine government insists that it is prepared for a possible eruption of the Taal volcano as it begins to show signs of life.

So much news has been coming out on this...


Could Super Solar Flares Take Us Back To 5000 BC?

It is a very simple equation: Energy = Civilisation. Without any form of energy we regress to circa 5000 BC. Energy powers every aspect of our modern lifestyle: clean water, fresh food, lighting, comfortable shelter, mobility, communication, safety and security. Our very own giant hot star, the sun, is earth's primary source of energy. On June 12th, at 00:55 Universal Time, an M2-class solar flare sparked a bright flash of extreme ultraviolet radiation, propelling a shock wave through the sun's atmosphere, and hurling a billion-ton Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) into space. According to scientists at NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), "The sun is waking up from a deep slumber, and in the next few years we expect to see much higher levels of solar activity... at the same time, our technological society has developed an unprecedented sensitivity to solar storms." One needs to go back over 8,000 years in order to find a time when the sun was, on average, as active as it is at present!

5.5 EARTHQUAKE ONTARIO-QUEBEC, CANADA


June 23, 2010

A 5.5 magnitude earthquake hit near the Canadian capital of Ottawa this afternoon, strong enough for tremors to be felt in the Chicago area.

Tectonic pressure on the New Madrid fault

June 30, 2010

The tectonic pressure on the new madrid fault is great.

The surface rupture of the roads and highways is out of control.
Buildings are cracking and shifting, flagpoles vibrate, roads blow up potholes, sidewalks are sinking and sinkholes are opening everywhere.
Any time day or night, you can literally feel the earth "vibrate" below your feet. Some bridges have been shut down or are scheduled for closing because they are unsafe.

In Momence Illinois, some of the buildings are beginning to sink. The same in Cedar Lake Indiana.
I believe we are about to get hit with a earthquake of biblical proportions.

6.5 magnitude quake hits Oaxaca Mexico

June 30, 2010 Wednesday

A 6.5 magnitude earthquake has struck the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, the US Geological Survey says.
The quake, which hit at 0222 local time (0722 GMT), also rattled buildings in Mexico City, some 355km (220 miles) away, sending people on to the streets.
Oaxaca civil defence officials said they were checking communities for reports of damage or casualties.

The quake's epicentre was 120km (75 miles) west-south-west of the city of Oaxaca, the USGS said.
The earthquake hit when many people were asleep.

"People came running out of the building," Pedro Salazar, a security guard in Mexico City, told Reuters news agency.
"We don't have reports of damaged buildings or people hurt," a civil protection official in the capital told the news agency.

In Oaxaca itself, a spokesman from the civil defence department, Gilberto Lopez, told the Associated Press that they were assessing the situation but did not yet have reports of damage or injuries.

The epicentre of the earthquake, which struck at a depth of 10km (6.2miles) was in a mountainous area near Oaxaca's southern Pacific coast, the USGS said.

Mexico lies on the Pacific "Rim of Fire", where continental tectonic plates meet, and is regularly shaken by tremors.

NASA FINALLY WARNS PUBLIC ABOUT 2012 SOLAR STORM




Dr Richard Fisher, head of NASA's Heliophysics Division said: "We know it's coming but we don't know how bad it's going to be." But what NASA is not telling the general public, is what you should be doing to get ready. Unless you live under a rock, you are beginning to notice that major news agencies as well as talk radio have started to cover the story, detailing exactly what NASA's warning is actually telling the public.

If NASA is indeed right and we do get a direct hit from a super solar storm, "The Economic Damage In The United States Alone Will Be Twenty Times Greater Then Hurricane Katrina That Hit New Orleans" say experts. What NASA is not outright telling the general population is that if the earth in fact gets a direct hit by a truly big solar storm producing super x-class solar flares, (Coronal Mass Ejection or CME)

...it will cripple the world in more ways then we can possibly imagine, as it will cause nearly every electronic device to no longer work until it gets fixed. Imagine no more properly working cell phones, cars, trucks, planes, ships, computers, TV, radio, iPods, or game machines, let alone no more advanced medical services. Since more then likely there will be no electric power in most of the world for many months on end, there will be no modern banking system in place, no New York Stock Exchange, credit cards will be worthless and what cash, silver and gold you have will be king.

Food stores will soon be looted in the name of survival, most gas stations can't pump gas for what cars and trucks that might still be running. All forms of radio communication will no longer work during this period, making it difficult if not impossible for local law enforcement to maintain law and order, and a National Marshall Law = (Rex-84) will be ordered that the public will be mostly unaware of. Before you know it, the the city water and sewer system will stop working.

If you are on an electric well pump, you lose your water right away, (unless it's a hand pump) where as those in the city might have a few days to a week or so before they lose all their water pressure. Even worse, those who don't have at least twelve to twenty four months of secured food and water, starvation will set in, which stands to kill hundreds of millions world wide if not billions; where as third world countries will not be as adversely effected.

*Remember... most of the world population no longer supply their own food, rather people buy it. If food trucks don't run, then they cant get the food to the stores. Even if somehow cars and trucks still worked, gas stations will be without power for months and thus unable to pump gas without having to run a costly generator. No doubt what gas their is available will be top dollar, easily exceeding ten US dollars per gallon in many locations world wide. It will be one big nightmare if the earth takes a direct hit from a super CME, thus changing billions of lives forever. Leading countries like the US would be temporally setback well over a hundred and fifty years. But there are numerous things we can do to easily survive the coming solar storm rather then us becoming a victim. Not to mention that it will take years to fully... read the rest at:

COMPLEX ERUPTION ON THE SUN:

This morning around 0855 UT, Earth orbiting satellites detected a C3-class solar flare. The origin of the blast was sunspot 1092. At about the same time, an enormous magnetic filament stretching across the sun's northern hemisphere erupted. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the action:

Posted Image

The timing of these events suggest they are connected, and a review of SDO movies strengthens that conclusion. Despite the ~400,000 km distance between them, the sunspot and filament seem to erupt together; they are probably connected by long-range magnetic fields. In this movie (171 Å), a shadowy shock wave (a "solar tsunami") can be seen emerging from the flare site and rippling across the northern hemisphere into the filament's eruption zone. That may have helped propel the filament into space.

In short, we have just witnessed a complex global eruption involving almost the entire Earth-facing side of the sun.

A coronal mass ejection (CME) produced by the event is heading directly for Earth: SOHO movie. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras when it arrives on or about August 3rd.
