Disaster Calendar 2011 – December 2

[December 2, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,566 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • Los Angeles, California. Los Angeles County has declared a state of emergency due to the destructive Santa Ana windstorm.
    • The declaration came after Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, Temple City, San Marino and Glendora declared their own emergencies, a report said.
    • In Pasadena, dozens of buildings have been destroyed (red-tagged by fire department) and many more damaged (yellow-tagged), while others await damage assessment.
    • Thousands of trees, some century-old, and utility poles were uprooted or damaged.
    • Winds of more than 80 mph (130kph, the equivalent of a category one hurricane on FEWW New Hurricane Scale) have knocked out electricity to about half a million homes throughout SoCal, also causing road delays and forcing dozens of flights to LAX to be diverted.
    • Hundreds of people have sought shelter in Pasadena.
    • “An American Red Cross shelter at Robinson Park in Pasadena housed about 60 displaced people bused in early Thursday from an apartment building that flooded after a tree toppled by the high winds crashed through the roof, breaking a water main,” said a report.

  • California, USA. Six California counties (combined population ~ 3.7 million) have been declared  agricultural disaster areas because of losses caused by the combined effects of unseasonably cool spring weather, a freeze, hail, below normal summer temperatures and unseasonable rainfall that occurred from April 7 to Sept. 30, 2011, USDA reported.
    • Solano County was designated as primary disaster area.
    • Contra Costa, Napa, Sacramento, Sonoma and Yolo counties were declared disaster areas because they’re contiguous.
    • Soon we’d be blaming the ‘unseasonable weather,’ ‘abnormal temperatures’ and ‘unreasonable rainfall’
