Mexico Declares State of Disaster, 3 Days of Mourning as EQ Toll Rises

Posted by feww on September 21, 2017

M7.1 Earthquake Leaves Hundreds Dead across Five Mexican States

Mexico has declared a state of disaster, and three days of mourning, as the earthquake death toll continues to rise.

A 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck near Atencingo in Puebla state, about 120km SSE of Mexico City on September 19, at 18:14 (UTC).

The earthquake destroyed scores of buildings and damaged thousands more across a wide area, inducing about 2,300 schools alone, according to reports.

The official  death toll now stands at 230 across five states, with at least 100 fatalities in the capital, but it’s expected to rise, as search for survivors continues.

Up to several thousand people may have been injured, but the exact number is  currently unknown.

Explosive Activity Increases at Popocatépetl

Posted by feww on May 13, 2013

Volcán Popocatépetl Alert Level Raised to 3

Mexcio’c National Center for Disaster Prevention (CENAPRED), has raised the volcanic activity alert to Yellow Phase 3  from Yellow Phase 2 on Sunday, after detecting  increased level of explosive activity at the towering volcano.

Yellow Phase 3 alert means the volcano could explode ejecting lava and other volcanic matter over considerable distances, according to CENAPRED chart.

The 5,452-m Volcán Popocatépetl, or “smoking mountain” in Aztec, North America’s 2nd-highest volcano, sits about 70 km SE of Mexico City.

Strong Earthquake Strikes Oaxaca, Mexico

Posted by feww on June 30, 2010

Earthquake Measuring at Least 6.5 Mw Strikes Oaxaca, Mexico

The quake, epicentered at 16.530°N, 97.708°W, struck about 120km WSW of Oaxaca City, Oaxaca, Mexico,  at depth of 10km on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 07:22:27 UTC.

The earthquake struck about 100 km WNW of the epicenter of a magnitude 8.0 quake which struck the region on June 17, 1928.

This quake has the potential to trigger one or more eruptions at volcanoes  in the region.

The shock may well prove to be detrimental to oil and gas drilling activities in the  Gulf of Mexico.

As of posting, there was no report of damage or casualties, but the Moderators believe some structural damage may have occurred locally close to the epicenter, and will post further information on Fire Earth Disaster pages.

Meanwhile, the death toll from severe and unseasonable winter rain, which have triggered floods and mudslides in Mexico reached 29. At least two dozen others were reported missing, presumed dead,  in the mudslides near Toluca, Mexico State. “A mix of drain water and sewage flowed into thousands of homes and blocked major thoroughfares in the metropolis of 20 million people. About 7,500 homes were flooded, prompting emergency personnel to ferry people from their homes through chest-high water.” AP reported.  “… at least 2,000 homes were damaged. The federal government declared three Michoacan townships disaster zones, opening access to relief funds.”

Swine Flu Update 28-04-09

Posted by feww on April 28, 2009

World Health Organization (WHO) flu expert, Dr Keiji Fukuda:

“Containment is not a feasible operation”

WHO has raised its swine flu alert level from three to four – two levels short of a full pandemic.

There has been  a “significant step towards pandemic influenza”, but “we are not there yet,” Dr Keiji Fukuda, WHO Assistant Director General said.

“What this can really be interpreted as is a significant step towards pandemic influenza. But also, it is a phase that says we are not there yet,” Fukuda said.

“In other words, at this time we think we have taken a step in that direction, but a pandemic is not considered inevitable.”

Because  the virus has become too widespread, containment is no longer a feasible option, he said, adding that the countries must focus measures that mitigate circumstances.

Alert level four means the virus is showing a sustained ability to pass from human to human, and is capable of causing community-level outbreaks.

In nature, influenza viruses circulate continuously among animals, especially birds. Even though such viruses might theoretically develop into pandemic viruses, in Phase 1 no viruses circulating among animals have been reported to cause infections in humans.

In Phase 2 an animal influenza virus circulating among domesticated or wild animals is known to have caused infection in humans, and is therefore considered a potential pandemic threat.

In Phase 3, an animal or human-animal influenza reassortant virus has caused sporadic cases or small clusters of disease in people, but has not resulted in human-to-human transmission sufficient to sustain community-level outbreaks. Limited human-to-human transmission may occur under some circumstances, for example, when there is close contact between an infected person and an unprotected caregiver. However, limited transmission under such restricted circumstances does not indicate that the virus has gained the level of transmissibility among humans necessary to cause a pandemic.

Phase 4 is characterized by verified human-to-human transmission of an animal or human-animal influenza reassortant virus able to cause “community-level outbreaks.” The ability to cause sustained disease outbreaks in a community marks a significant upwards shift in the risk for a pandemic. Any country that suspects or has verified such an event should urgently consult with WHO so that the situation can be jointly assessed and a decision made by the affected country if implementation of a rapid pandemic containment operation is warranted. Phase 4 indicates a significant increase in risk of a pandemic but does not necessarily mean that a pandemic is a forgone conclusion.

Phase 5 is characterized by human-to-human spread of the virus into at least two countries in one WHO region. While most countries will not be affected at this stage, the declaration of Phase 5 is a strong signal that a pandemic is imminent and that the time to finalize the organization, communication, and implementation of the planned mitigation measures is short.

Phase 6, the pandemic phase, is characterized by community level outbreaks in at least one other country in a different WHO region in addition to the criteria defined in Phase 5. Designation of this phase will indicate that a global pandemic is under way.

During the post-peak period, pandemic disease levels in most countries with adequate surveillance will have dropped below peak observed levels. The post-peak period signifies that pandemic activity appears to be decreasing; however, it is uncertain if additional waves will occur and countries will need to be prepared for a second wave.

Previous pandemics have been characterized by waves of activity spread over months. Once the level of disease activity drops, a critical communications task will be to balance this information with the possibility of another wave. Pandemic waves can be separated by months and an immediate “at-ease” signal may be premature.

In the post-pandemic period, influenza disease activity will have returned to levels normally seen for seasonal influenza. It is expected that the pandemic virus will behave as a seasonal influenza A virus. At this stage, it is important to maintain surveillance and update pandemic preparedness and response plans accordingly. An intensive phase of recovery and evaluation may be required. —WHO

Confirmed and suspected cases

  • In Mexico the death toll from swine flu outbreak rose to 149 , but the authorities have only confirmed 20 cases.
  • The victims are all aged between 20 and 50.
  • A total of about 2,000 people had been hospitalized since April 13, when the first case of swine flu was reported, but a half had been released.
  • Cases are confirmed in the US, Canada, Spain and Britain.
  • In New Zealand a total of about 80 suspected cases were reported.
  • The first batches of a swine flu vaccine could be ready in about four to six months, but it would take several more months to produce it in large quantities, Fukuda said. [But is it guaranteed to work? And more importantly, is it safe?]
  • The newly-detected virus contains genetic material from previous versions of swine flu and avian flu viruses, experts say.
  • Schools nationwide will remain closed until  May 6, as a precautionary measure to mitigate the outbreak.

The U.S. Cases

  • A further 20 cases of swine flu were confirmed in New York, with other cases reported in  California,  Kansas, Ohio, Texas reaching a total of about 40 nationwide.
  • Patients with swine flu outside Mexico are said to be making a full recovery, so far.
  • It is thought that only person in the US had been hospitalised as a result of contracting the virus, and all had recovered.
  • The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is advising that  “non-essential travel to Mexico be avoided”.

New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Israel, Scotland  South Korea, Spain

  • At least six cases have been recorded in British Columbia and in Nova Scotia.
  • Two people in Scotland and a young man in Spain who returned from Mexico were tested positive for the virus.
  • Suspected cases of swine flu infection are being reported in New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Israel and South Korea among visitors who returned from Mexico.
  • Many countries have banned imports of raw pork and pork products from Mexico and the US.
  • Shares in airlines have nosedived amid fears of the economic impact of the virus outbreak.
  • Oil futures fell 5% in early trading Monday because of concerns over global economic recovery.

Swine Flu Mystery Deepens

Posted by feww on April 27, 2009

Is New Zealand’s Biowarfare Industry the Missing Link in Swine Flu Outbreak?

Latest Update –

  • President Obama said the swine flu cases in the US were a cause for concern but not alarm.
  • World Health Organization experts are meeting to discuss the virus outbreak.
  • The UN warns that the virus has the potential to become a pandemic.
  • EU Health Commissioner has advised people to avoid traveling to Mexico and the US, except in an emergency.
  • Mexican Health Secretary said suspected swine flu cases in his country had risen to 1,614 on Sunday.
  • A senior US health official warned about the possibility of  “more severe cases” to follow.
  • Airlines shares fell sharply on fears concerning the economic fallout of the outbreak.
  • Oil futures fell 5% in early trading Monday because of concerns over global economic recovery.
  • Most countries are introducing measures to prevent the spread the virus.
  • In New Zealand the authorities are preparing for the worst as swine flu toll rises. Dozens of people have been quarantined, or asked to stay at home for seven days.

In Mexico City:

  • Schools and public buildings remained closed, and people were advised to stay indoors.
  • Soldiers handed out six million masks throughout the capital.

  • Mexico: 103 dead; 20 confirmed deaths from swine flu; 18 confirmed infected with swine flu
  • United States: 20 confirmed cases
  • Canada: 6 confirmed cases
  • Spain: 1 confirmed case
  • New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Israel, Spain and UK :  Dozens of suspected cases being tested

NewZeelend Blog Moderator, TEAA, is advising her readers who are flying Air New Zealand to demand their plane be fumigated immediately before takeoff!

TEAA asks

1. Why are so many New Zealanders sickened by swine flu virus, compared with only a few cases in the United States?

2. Did the virus really originate from Mexico?

TEAA wrote:

  • Total number of New Zealanders visiting Mexico City since March 2009:  Not very many, possibly a few hundred.
  • Reported number of New Zealanders sickened by Swine flu virus: More than 20 percent of the visitors [FEWW estimate is about 5% of the visitors]
  • Total number of US citizens visiting Mexico City or coming into contact with people traveling from MC since March: Hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of citizens [FEWW estimates the number at 1,000,000]
  • Total number of US citizens hit by Swine flu: Less than two dozens

Based on the figures provided by TEAA, the Moderators  estimate that the ratio of the rate of New Zealanders with suspected infection to those in the United States is  about 250,000 : 1

In other words, New Zealanders have shown to be 250,000 more likely to catch the suspected swine flu virus than the US citizen.

FEWW also estimate that

  • The ratio of the rate of New Zealanders who traveled to Mexico City and are now suspected to have swine flu to the infected people in Mexico is about 275,000 : 1

And

  • Rate ratio of New Zealanders to the infected people in Mexico City is about 45,000 : 1

All of the data available are of course preliminary and subject to speculation. However, the readers would agree that the numbers are too significant to disregard as statistical anomaly.

Where did the swine flu virus originate from? Mexico, New Zealand or some place else?

FEWW is informed that ESR (a Crown Research Institute wholly owned by the New Zealand Government) is heavily involved in germ warfare experiments.  For additional information see: Dr Adu-Bobie, 31, an expert on meningococcal vaccines, contracted meningococcal septicaemia within days of working at New Zealand’s ESR labs.

Is it possible that the new strain of swine flu was developed in New Zealand and flown to Mexico for experiments?

Has New Zealand ever committed any major crimes such as  genocide, mass murder, crimes against humanity and nature, large-scale environmental destruction, eco-terrorism … to warrant any such insinuation?

Genocide of Maori. Maori owned 66,400,000 acres of land in 1840. Maori population stood at about 250,000. Two generations later, by 1891, the Maori Land was reduced to one sixth of the original holding (11,079,486 Acres) and so was Maori population, decimated by Pakeha (white Europeans) to 42,000.

Ecocide in Vietnam and genocide of North Vietnamese. New Zealand has been producing chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction since at least the end of WWII. One of the well-documented cases is the manufacture of substantial quantities of the deadly defoliant Agent Orange between 1960 and 1987, which was subsequently used for the destruction of Vietnamese forests and mass murder of the North Vietnamese.

The Case of Dr Adu-Bobie. Dr Adu-Bobie, 31, an expert on meningococcal vaccines, contracted meningococcal septicaemia within days of working at New Zealand’s ESR labs. The virus didn’t affect her white colleagues.

[Note: Patients with swine flu outside Mexico are said to be making a full recovery, so far.]

Ecocide in New Zealand and Antarctica

The Secret Dumping of Agent Orange. Indiscriminate dumping of Agent Orange in secret sites.

Intensive Agriculture. The pressure in New Zealand to produce food for export has turned the country into a giant sewage dump. “Hundreds of millions of tons of agricultural waste and farm runoffs are discharged into the lakes and coastal waters, and millions of tons of methane gas are released to the environment each year.” Extensive dead zones regularly appear off the coasts of New Zealand. Both  NZ and Australia are major sources of industrial agriculture as well as sheep and cattle factory farming. “New Zealand cattle and sheep also produce methane emissions equivalent to 33 million tons of carbon dioxide each year.”

Large-scale environmental pollution. New Zealand is the size of Colorado yet it hosts up to 94 million farm animals (livestock excluding poultry), which discharge an estimated 300 million tons of effluent to the environment each year. New Zealand’s intensive animal industries produce about 4 times more manure than they could safely use as fertilizer. [The leftover is discharged or washed off into NZ coastal waters.]

New Zealand Tourism Industry. New Zealand government is committing eco-terrorism by luring 2.5 million uninformed persons to New Zealand each year. On a return flight from the United States to New Zealand, each visitor produces about 7.4 metric tons of CO2e pollution [11.1 metric tons of CO2e if flying from the US Atlantic coast]; a UK visitor produces about 17.64 metric tons of CO2.

World’s largest 1080 user. NZ government agencies are increasingly using large scale indiscriminate aerial applications to cut costs. New Zealand releases about two and a half tons of compound 1080 into its environment each year, about 90% of the global use. [Enough poison to kill the entire population of New Zealand 15 times over, if administered orally!]

Negligent homicide of at least 1,522 foreigners, with another 450 visitors permanently missing. Between January 1, 2000 and January 30, 2009 at least 1,475 foreigners were killed in New Zealand. That is as many as 35 percent of all US troops killed in Iraq during a comparable period. [Between March 2003 and January 30, 2009 at least 4,237 US military personnel were killed in Iraq —officially acknowledged.] Number of foreigners who are permanently missing in New Zealand is estimated at more than 450.

Mass murder of dozens of Chinese babies and sickening of another half of a million. Chinese Sanlu chairwoman Tian Wenhau last week said she allowed melamine to be added to its infant milk formula on the advice of its New Zealand shareholder. Fonterra has confirmed it gave her a document about Europe’s safe limits of melamine in food, but said it made it clear zero was the only acceptable melamine level.

Conspiracy to topple foreign governments.

  • A key government official in Fiji claims she has email written by Michael green, a senior New Zealand “diplomat,” showing secret interference in Fiji’s internal affairs. A report by Fiji Human Rights Commission head and Ombudsman Shaista Shameem states New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs deputy secretary, Michael Green, is involved in a “conspiracy to cripple the administration of justice in Fiji”.  Michael Green was New Zealand’s High Commissioner in Fiji until he was declared persona non grata and kicked out of the country in June 2007. Dr Shameem says he “was still interfering in Fiji’s internal affairs”. (Source:  http://www.stuff.co.nz/4592575a11.html).
  • A suspected New Zealand SIS agent arrested in the Philippines in connection with  a 2003 mutiny. Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials say they are doing what they can to help the suspect, NZPA said. … “The man, identified only by his surname Newman, and six retired Philippine Navy soldiers have been detained by the Philippines’ Bureau of Immigration and Organised Crime Task Force, The Dominion Post reported.”… “The man had appointed a lawyer and did not want any other information released.”

Advance knowledge of virus manipulation. ESR’s influenza experts have been heavily experimenting with the flu virus for nearly two decades. “ESR undertakes New Zealand’s ‘flu surveillance and operates the WHO National Influenza Centre. A national surveillance system was set up in 1991 as part of the WHO global programme for influenza surveillance.” … “ESR’s influenza team move[d] into new purpose-built laboratories at the National Centre for Biosecurity and Infectious Disease – Wallaceville, early in 2008.” [Update added May 8, 2009 ]

New Zealand government debts are UNMANAGEABLE. They would take any measure to avoid bankruptcy and stay in control. The flu vaccine business is an extremely lucrative market, and NZ govt as the owners of ESR labs. would stop short of nothing to exploit that market. They currently have in place various arrangements with vaccine manufacturers, including a contract with Australia’s CSL Ltd— a flu vaccine manufacturer. The following are excerpts from Will NZ become Iceland?

Quote [from http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/industries/economy/2016117/Will-NZ-become-Iceland%5D

  • The [New Zealand] economy is in its worst recession on record, and the government faces a sea of red ink – will New Zealand end up like Iceland?
  • [T]he economy  is shrinking as the once-hot housing market has stalled, skyrocketing fuel and food prices have turned consumers cautious and the credit crunch has hit.
  • New Zealand “is one of the most heavily indebted developed economies, as measured by the net international investment position as a percentage of GDP,” Trinh [a currency analyst at RBC Capital Markets in Sydney] said in a note to investors.
  • New Zealand “is one of the most heavily indebted developed economies, as measured by the net international investment position as a percentage of GDP,” Trinh said in a note to investors.[Sue Trinh is a currency analyst at RBC Capital Markets in Sydney]
  • At the end of March last year, New Zealand’s national debt, as measured by a negative net international investment position, was 86 percent of GDP, second to Iceland in the group of countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Swine flu kills dozens in Mexico

Posted by feww on April 24, 2009

Swine flu kills 60 people and sickens 1,000  others in Mexico

60 people have died and hundreds more have been infected by a viral outbreak in Mexico believed to be a new strain of swine flu.

The cases are centered around Mexico City since mid-March, World Health Organization (WHO) said, prompting the authorities to close schools and launching a vaccination campaign in affected areas.

57  people died in Mexico City and another three in San Luis Potosi in central Mexico, with nearly a 1,000 suspected cases reported.

The infections follow seven non-fatal cases of a new form of swine flu confirmed in California and Texas, where tests are being carried out to establish if the two strains are linked.

Mexico’s Health Minister said the virus seems to have  “mutated from pigs and then at some point was transmitted to humans.”

“This is the first time that we’ve seen an avian strain, two swine strains and a human strain,” a spokesperson for the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) told the media.

NO Water in Mexico City

Water cut off in Mexican capital

Mexico City officials have shut down a main pipeline providing fresh water to millions of residents because reserves have fallen to record low levels.

The closure, due to last 36 hours, will affect five million people, or a quarter of the city’s population.

Unusually low rainfall last year and major leakage are blamed for leaving reservoirs less than half full.

Hundreds of water trucks have been deployed in the areas worst affected by the cuts.

The local government says it will carry out emergency repairs to the water supply network.

More than 50% of the water carried by the pipeline leaks out before it reaches its destination.

This is the third time the capital has faced such a drastic form of water rationing this year, the BBC’s Stephen Gibbs in Mexico City reports.

It has been deliberately timed to coincide with Easter weekend, when many residents, or at least those who can afford to, leave the city, our correspondent says.

Mexico City was once a floating city, built on a spectacular chain of volcanic lakes, and flooding used to be its main environmental threat.

But since the lakes were finally drained in the 1960s, the city has been struggling with its water supply, our correspondent says.
