Rare Tornado Leaves a Trail of Destruction in Milan, Italy

A ferocious tornado struck the northeastern outskirts of Milan, destroying buildings, overturning trucks, uprooting trees

  • “It kept growing and growing. It was like having the engine of a plane next to me,” said a local resident.

Milan has a population of about 1.35 million; however, its urban area is the largest in Italy, and 5th largest in the EU, with a population of more than 5.2 million. The Milan metropolitan area is located within the so-called Blue Banana, the area of Europe with the highest industrial output.

Saudi Arabia reports 3 more deaths from MERS-CoV

Saudi Arabia says three more people have died from MERS-CoV, a new respiratory virus related to SARS, bringing the global total to 30. The three victims, ranging in age from 24 to 60,  had chronic diseases, the Health authorities said.  A total of 38 infected cases had been reported in the country, 49 worldwide, as of May 30, 2013.

Despite major scaremongering by the World Health Organization (WHO), calling the virus a “threat to the entire world,” MERS does not appear to be as easily transmitted as SARS was.

So far, MERS has not shown any signs of sustained person to person transmission, and nearly all of fatalities have occurred in patients with underlying medical conditions.

The SARS outbreak in South China and later Hong Kong, which didn’t become  a pandemic, led to 8,273 cases and 775 deaths worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

[The novel coronavirus called “Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus” (MERS-CoV) was identified in 2012 as the cause of respiratory illness in people, CDC said.]


1,017 Days Left 

Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.

  • SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,017 Days Left to ‘Worst Day’ in the brief Human  History
  • The countdown began on May 15, 2011 …
