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

Global Volcanic Activity/ Unrest New/ Ongoing – 092601

Posted by feww on September 26, 2017

Mt Agung volcano has reached a critical stage with about 500 tremors recorded in 24 hrs –BNPB

“…all measuring instruments show there is growing pressure towards the surface,” spokesperson for the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) told the local media.

“The chance that an eruption will happen is quite high. But it cannot be predicted when it will happen.”

About 60,000 people have fled the restive volcano in Bali as rising magma and enhanced seismicity threaten an imminent eruption, officials said.

Some 2,000 cattle have also been evacuated from the villages surrounding the volcano.

Mount Tongariro Erupts

Posted by feww on August 7, 2012

Disaster Calendar – 7 August 2012

SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,317 Days Left

[August 7, 2012] Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,317 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History…

.

Selected Global Disasters/ Significant Events

New Zealand

Mega eruptions could follow in and around New Zealand Islands, as forecast

Mount Tongariro, located in the center of NZ’s North Island, spewed ash and debris more than 6,000 meters into the air at 23:50 on Monday local time.

The force of eruption sent a cloud of ash about 110 km southeast of the volcano, and catapulted volcanic rocks at least a kilometer away, reports said.

  • NZ’s Civil Defense said the volcanic activity could pose a threat to  Waikato, Hawke’s Bay, Gisborne, Manawatu, Wanganui, Bay of Plenty and Taranaki.
  • Mount Tongariro last erupted in 1897.

USA

  • Montana. Gov Schweitzer declared a state of emergency across half the state as strong winds fanned wildfires that have already scorched about 300,000 acres since last week.
    • “The spate of new fires in recent days has pushed Montana above 900 square miles burned so far in 2012. That’s well over the state’s 10-year average and more than three times the amount of land that burned last year,” said a report.
  • Florida.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has designated 23 counties in Florida as agricultural disaster areas due to the combined effects of Tropical Storm Debby, excessive rain and flooding that occurred June 1-29, 2012.
    • Georgia. Five counties in Georgia were also declared as disaster areas because they’re contiguous.
  • California.  USDA has designated 13 counties in California as agricultural disaster areas due to damages and losses caused by losses caused by hail, rain and cold temperatures that occurred April 11-13, 2012.
    • Primary disaster areas: Kings and Merced counties.
    • Contiguous disaster areas: Fresno, Kern, Madera, Mariposa, Monterey, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Santa Clara, Stanislaus, Tulare and Tuolumne counties.
  • South Carolina.  USDA has designated six counties in South Carolina as agricultural disaster areas due to damages and losses caused by frost, freezes, and a hailstorm that occurred April 5-13, 2012.
    • North Carolina.  Three counties in NC were also declared as disaster areas because they’re contiguous.

Philippines

  • Manila.  Extreme rain events have submerged more than half of the Philippine capital, triggering a deadly landslide that killed at least a dozen people.
    • Most parts of the country were already saturated following Typhoon Saola, which left up to 60 people dead and forced more than quarter of a million people to flee their homes last week.
    • The authorities have reportedly evacuated hundreds of thousands of residents along the Marikina River banks, after excess water La Mesa dam spilled into the rivers flowing into Manila’s suburban Quezon City and several other areas.
    • Many others have climbed to rooftops waiting to be rescued.
    • “It’s like a water world,” the chief of  disaster response agency was reported as saying.
    • At least ten provincial areas and cities around Manila have declared states of calamity.
    • Price of basic commodities in areas under states of calamity have skyrocketed by up to 300 percent since last week, reports said.
