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

New Zealand “lit up like a Christmas tree”

Posted by feww on October 14, 2013

5000 Lightning strikes in 2 hours, as powerful winds batter NZ capital, “worse is yet to come”

Hurricane-strength winds have downed trees, closed roads and cut power to thousands of New Zealand homes, forcing dozens of flight cancellation in the capital Wellington on Monday.

A local forecaster has warned “worse is yet to come” with ”the meat of the core of the strong winds” to hit Wellington between 2-8pm today.

Parts of the country were also being “lit up like a Christmas tree” by lightning strikes, said the forecaster, with 5000 strikes recorded between 10am and noon Monday.

“Most of those were west of the South Island’s main divide, although some were spilling over to the east,” said a report.
