Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

U.S. Floods Hit Texas, Oregon, Wyoming, Utah, Missouri …

Flooding in Texas is said to have killed  at least one resident “as 11 inches of rain in two southern counties caused evacuation of several communities, authorities said,” UPI reported.

“It’s a madhouse out here,” a police lieutenant said. “We’ve made several rescues, and we’re in the middle of many more now.”

“Originally, we heard an estimate of 50 people needing shelter, but they’re bringing buses in,” American Red Cross spokeswoman Susie Walker-Atchison said. “Also, there’s some flooding that’s preventing people from getting to the shelters.”

A 22-square-mile section of Fremont County including about 2,000 homes is flooded or threatened by flooding, the Wyoming National Guard reported.

“Fremont County has already been declared a disaster area by the state because of widespread flooding from raging rivers, a report said.

“Rapidly melting mountain snowpack and rain have pushed rivers in the area to record or near-record levels, washing away bridges, flooding homes and curtailing drinking water supplies. Flooding also is occurring in south-central Wyoming, but sandbagging efforts have proved largely successful in Saratoga and other small communities threatened.” AP reported.

Heavy rain and melting snow have triggered severe flooding in eastern Oregon, damaging or destroying “many roads, bridges, trails and recreation sites on the 2.4-million-acre” Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, according to a report. A state of emergency has been declared.


As many of Salt Lake County residents begin cleaning up from flooding  thousands of others anxiously monitor the weather and swollen rivers. County officials have warned of  the high risk of flooding on the eastern Wasatch Front  into Thursday, a report said.


Severe storms brought in heavy rains pummeling parts of Kansas City metro area, and causing flash flooding in many low-lying areas which forced some businesses along Indian Creek in the south of the city to evacuate, a report said.

“It looks pretty powerful, the size of trees coming down, it’s just completely manipulative,” said a resident who lives near the creek.
