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

Tornadoes Trap Residents in Wessington Springs, SD

“We know there has been damage and we know that it is significant. At this point, emergency personnel are in route to the city to offer help,” an official told reporters.

“We’ve heard people are trapped in their homes here in town. Search and rescue are out trying to help law enforcement,”  said director of patient care at Avera Weskota Memorial Hospital in south-central South Dakota.

“It really is all still happening right now. The tornado hit across the street from the hospital—really just one block away—and there is stuff and debris everywhere.”

Tornadoes have also touched down in North Dakota and Colorado, according to the Storm prediction Center (SPC).

Flood Disaster

The attack took place just a day after Gov. Daugaard activated more than 120 Soldiers from the South Dakota National Guard to assist the state in flood response operations in southeast South Dakota.

On Tuesday rising flood waters cut off the small city of Canton, submerging homes and businesses cars and highways, and trapping scores of people.

“The severe storm pounded the eastern part of the state Monday afternoon and also slammed southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa, where at least one community was evacuated because of a swelling river. Emergency crews rushed to rescue people from their homes and fill sandbags as a defense against the waters,” NBC reported.

Record rains have inundated the region this month, with Sioux Falls receiving more than 10 inches.

“Monday’s storm sent the Rock River in Rock Rapids, Iowa, cresting at more than 24 feet, and it was expected to rise another four feet, officials warned. About 350 people in the Lyon County community of Alvord were ordered to evacuate Monday,” reported KTIV.

Canmore “Wiped Off the Map” amid Historic Alberta Flooding

Posted by feww on June 23, 2013

“The beautiful town of Canmore is basically wiped off the map”

Karen, a reader from Canada, wrote earlier today:

So far there has been about 175,000 evacuated from 25 communities in Alberta.  The water level in the Saddledome is over 10 rows.  The world famous Calgary Stampede grounds are flooded.  The down town area looks like Venice with water on all the streets.   Power is shut off to all the high rises, and may be out for over a week or more depending on water levels. They had to move the animals out of the zoo. Bridges have been wiped out.  They are expecting about another 8 or so bridges to go as it works its way down steam to Lethbridge and Medicine Hat.  They have already started evacuations there.  It has never ever been anything near this for as long as people can know of, and we are expecting more rain yet.  There are waterfalls on mountains where there never has been before,  The beautiful town of Canmore is basically wiped off the map.

Calgary and High River

Calgary remains under a state of emergency, although river levels have receded.

“This is incredible. I’ve seen a little bit of flooding in Calgary before. I don’t think any of us have seen anything like this before. The magnitude is just extraordinary,” said the Canadian Prime Minister, who is from Calgary.

The town of High River, south-west of Calgary, where three bodies have been recovered, remained under mandatory evacuation .

Meantime, Alberta Premier said the destruction in High River was “indescribable,” warning that cities and towns  downstream of Calgary were yet to experience the full force of the raging floodwaters.

Medicine Hat

“Evacuation notices went out to 10,000 homes along lower-lying areas of Medicine Hat last night,” said a report.

Authorities have evacuated about 15,000 people from more than 3,700 homes in Medicine Hat and they plan to shut off power and gas from those houses as a safety precaution, CBC reported.
