Fire Earth

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

Cyclone YASI Rainfall Rates – Satellite Images

TRMM Images of Cyclone YASI Rainfall Rates

YASI crossed  Australia’s coast of Queensland around midnight on February 2. Shortly before landfall, the mega cyclone was packing sustained winds of 250km/hr (155mph), with wind gusts of up to 305 km/hr (189 mph), the Joint Typhoon Warning Center reported.


TRMM satellite flew above YASI at 03:39 UTC (Feb. 2 at 10:39 p.m. EST/1:39 p.m. Australia local time) and captured data for this image.  “Yasi was still dropping moderate to heavy rain over Australia in an area southeast of the Gulf of Carpentaria. The yellow and green areas indicate moderate rainfall between .78 to 1.57 inches per hour. Red areas are heavy rainfall at almost 2 inches per hour.”Source: NASA

A Day Earlier…


TRMM satellite took this image of YASI rainfall at 19:27 UTC on February 2, 2011 about 5 hours after Yasi had made landfall. “It shows the immense size of the storm with rainbands swirling clockwise around the center stretching from the southern part of the Gulf of Carpentaria to midway down the northeast coast of Queensland.” Source: NASA.

“The first Yasi-related death was announced today after a 23-year-old man was found dead in his home last night. Police said he was killed by fumes from a generator he was running inside a closed room after the storm knocked out electricity.”Source

YASI REVVING UP TO MAX POWER

YASI Now an Extremely Destructive Cat 5 Cyclone, as Forecast by FIRE-EARTH

BE WARNED! YASI looks set to dump the maximum possible precipitation available in the SW Pacific atmosphere, and some, over the state of Queensland.

THE FIRST PHASE OF COLLAPSE IS WELL AND TRULY UNDERWAY! IF YOU’RE PLANNING TO MOVE TO AUSTRALIA TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PLUNDER … THERE’S A LOT MORE WHERE THIS ONE CAME FROM.

NEW ERA for MEGA CYCLONES HAS STARTED?

‘SEVERE TC YASI IS A LARGE AND VERY POWERFUL TROPICAL CYCLONE AND POSES AN EXTREMELY SERIOUS THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY WITHIN THE WARNING AREA, ESPECIALLY BETWEEN CAIRNS AND TOWNSVILLE.’ ~ Australia BOM

“THIS IMPACT IS LIKELY TO BE MORE LIFE THREATENING THAN ANY EXPERIENCED DURING RECENT GENERATIONS.”

“TC Yasi, CATEGORY 5, will continue to move in a west-southwesterly direction during the day. The cyclone is expected to cross the coast in the Innisfail area at about midnight.” BOM said.

YASI knocked out the Willis Island Radar as it passed overhead, JTWC said.

Frightening and Catastrophic

QUEENSLAND Premier Anna Bligh has finally described Mega Cyclone YASI as a “frightening and catastrophic” cyclone telling a quarter of a million residents in the projected path of the storm they only have three hours left to run for their lives.

“Do not bother to pack bags, just grab each other and get to an area of safety.” Ms. Bligh has said.
