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

Warsaw Heavily Flooded

“I don’t get it, why there’s no news about it around the world?”

Hey. I think  I should update you right about now:

Terrible storms invaded Poland since Wednesday night, the capital city is terribly flooded with just rain water (cars are whole under water in some places). With such huge amount of rain and rivers still full of flood from two weeks ago, ground cannot take any more water. And the second wave of flood is raging in, and we suspect there’s gonna be a third one.

We’re massively flooded, and I don’t get it, why there’s no news about it around the world? All I can read in US news in some sport superbowl or something.

Fire Earth found only a brief mention of flooding by AP (CP) on the Internet:

In the Warsaw suburb of Piaseczno, water rose high enough in some places to nearly immerse cars. Firefighters used boats to navigate streets as they helped evacuate residents.

Sandomierz, a town in the country’s south that was among the worst-hit places last month, was bracing Friday for new floods.

Landslides also destroyed houses in some areas, including in Klodne, in southern Poland, where people have been trying to salvage belongings after their homes collapsed.
