Disaster Calendar 2011 – December 18

[December 18, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,550 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • Mindanao, Philippines. Typhoon WASHI [locally known as ‘Sendong’] dumped more than a month of average rains on Mindanao island in southern Philippines according to local weather office.
    • A total of more than 1,650 people have lost their lives or reported as missing after flooding and landslides triggered by the typhoon [locally known as ‘Sendong’] buffeted southern Philippines.
    • Some 652 people were killed in eight provinces in the southern Mindanao region, said the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC).
    • “This thing happened so fast. It’s overwhelming. We didn’t expect these many dead,” a senior official said.
    • “We need body bags and lime to deal with too many cadavers,” said General Roland Amarille, head of an army task force in Iligan.
    • “Local mortuaries are no longer accepting cadavers and they are even asking people to bury the dead at once because there are too many bodies even in hallways.”
    • “About 70 percent of the houses on the island were washed into the sea,” Amarille said.
    • The authorities have declared states of calamity in Iligan City,  Dumaguete City and the municipality of Valencia, both located in Negros Oriental province.
    • At 4:00am local time, December 18, 2011, TS WASHI [‘SENDONG’] made another landfall near Puerta Princesa City and is now heading towards the West Philippines Sea, NDRRMC reported.
    • In its latest update, the NDRRMC also reported the storm had so far affected 19,759 families [or 108,130 people] in 140 districts in 17  municipalities and eight cities in 11 provinces.

Other Global Disasters

  • East Java, Indonesia. At least 220 people were missing [possibly as many as 600 are feared dead,] after an overcrowded boat packed with political and economic refugees heading for Australia sank off the coast of east Java in Indonesia, officials said.
    • Between 30 and 75 people have been rescued, according to different reports.
  • Cairo, Egypt.  At least a dozen demonstrators have been killed and about 500 others wounded by the Egyptian army following a third day of clashes in a new round of uprising as the winter of the so called “Arab Spring” deepens.
    • Increasingly, the Egyptians are realizing that what they actually participated in wasn’t a “revolution,” but a coup d’etat, cunningly orchestrated by the military and its paymasters and carried out on the back of a mass uprising.
    • Egypt is Israel’s next-door neighbor. Hell would freeze over before Egyptians are allowed to have a functioning democracy!
  • Russia. Some 53 people are dead or missing after an oil rig overturned in the Sea of Okhotsk in the Russian Far East, the emergency service officials said.
