Korean nuke conflict could make Chernobyl look like “child’s fairytale” – Putin

The fallout of a nuclear conflict on the Korean Peninsula would cause far greater devastation than the  Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986, the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, was reported as saying.

“I would make no secret about it, we are worried about the escalation on the Korean peninsula, because we are neighbors,” he told a joint news conference with German Chancellor Merkel in Germany.

“And if, God forbid, something happens, Chernobyl which we all know a lot about, may seem like a child’s fairy tale. Is there such a threat or not? I think there is… I would urge everyone to calm down… and start to resolve the problems that have piled up for many years there at the negotiating table.”

The tensions have been mounting since the United Nations imposed new sanctions against the North in response to Pyongyang’s third nuclear test in February.  NK’s anger has further been compounded by weeks of joint military exercises by SK and U.S. troops.

“In the most likely scenario, as the first phase of world’s cities begin to collapse, an all-out global war would break out… that would be fought with nuclear, exotic, biological and conventional weapons.”

Red Flag Warnings Raised in 7 States

Posted by feww on April 8, 2013

Fire Disaster Recipe:  Strong Winds and Low Humidity

RED FLAG WARNINGS are in effect in parts of Texas New Mexico, Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah and Oklahoma as both strong wind and low Humidity worsen across the region, NWS said.

“A low pressure system over the Great Basin will dig slowly southeastward toward New Mexico, today. Strong winds aloft will initially push over western New Mexico, gradually spreading to most areas. These strong winds aloft will combine with a deepening area of low pressure at the surface, leading to very windy conditions. In addition, dry conditions will precede the storm system with relative humidities ranging from the upper single digits to mid teens across much of the area.”

Critical Fire Weather conditions are expected from late Monday morning into Monday evening, across the region.

  • Wind: Southwesterly sustained winds of 25 to 40 mph; with gusts up to 60 mph
  • Relative Humidity: 10 to 15 percent
  • Impacts: Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly
