Preparing for Natural Disasters and Weather Emergencies
Flood Safety Guide
Natural disasters are the effect of natural hazards, such as avalanches, blizzards, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and wildfires. These unexpected events lead to financial, environmental loss, as well as loss of animal and human life. Natural disasters can occur due to an individual's lack of preparedness, which leaves them vulnerable to uncontrollable forces. A natural hazard distinctly means a natural phenomena that has not resulted in significant damage or loss of life. Some key points of preparedness involve securing one's home, developing an evacuation plan, and storing enough food and water to survive long periods of tumultuous activity.

Earthrise Over The Moon
Hurricane Maria, a "potentially catastrophic" Category 4 storm, is barreling toward Puerto Rico, expected to go over the middle on Wed., and the Virgin Islands, after smacking into the Caribbean island of Dominica last night (Sept. 18), with the island nation's prime minister posting on Facebook that the roofs were torn off the homes of almost every person he had spoken to. This is the most intense hurrican landfall in Puerto Rico since before the Great Depression. The apparent path brings Maria brings it to the Dominican Republic on Thursday, and the Turks and Caicos on Friday.
Norma has been downgraded from Cat 1 to a Tropical Storm. Its track appears to be radically diverging by a 90 degree angle. It is tracking to the west in the East Pacific below Baja California this Sunday, September 17, 2017 and will glide substantially out to sea away from Los Cabos.
A new hurricane has been defined in the East Pacific. Named Otis, this Cat 1 is tracking west along near the Tropic of Cancer a few hundred miles west of North America. It appears to be a squall which will blow itself out in the empty horizons of the East Pacific.
Jose is still at a Cat 1 on the hurricane scale and is shifting to the north. It is projected to flow past the coast of the Carolinas and possibly hit landfall on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 in the area of Connecticut - Boston. The various weather models for the track projection diverge quite radically and are not conclusive about where Jose will end up.
A new hurricane has formed in the Atlantic a little to the east of the Leeward Islands. Called Maria, this is now a Cat 1 hurricane and its outer rings are whipping the Leeward Islands and will pummel most of them all day Monday, September 18, 2017. Thank you lucky stars, this is nearly one half the strength of Irma's Cat 5. On Tuesday, Maria will push to the northside of Hispanolia Island and begin to follow the track of Irma.
This will provide the opportunity for an interesting comparison between Irma and Maria. Irma had a lot of Solar ionic "push" at its back, so to speak. At the moment Maria has very little visible ionic activity over the bare minimum
Another tropical depression - Lee - has formed due east of Maria several hundred miles. It is not yet suspected as a p ossible hurricane.

Has this massive X9.3 class eruption triggered our planets tectonic plates? Mexico hit by an 8.2 Earthquake About 11 hours ago 8.2 magnitude, 69 km depth
El Palmarcito, Chiapas, Mexico To date, there have been 20 aftershocks at 4.4 mag and above. Death toll stands at 32.
A powerful 7.1 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday has hit central Mexico. The tremor rattled buildings in the capital, Mexico City. Witnesses said that buildings were toppled, killing children in a school that collapsed, rattling the capita, collapsing 40 buildings in Mexico City and sending people flooding into the streets for the second time in just two weeks. As of Wed, 216 people had been killed and 94 people were confirmed dead in Mexico City. The quake hit the state of Puebla at a depth of 32 miles (51 km).
Earlier this month, a powerful 8.1 magnitude killed at least 90 people in the country.
Tuesday’s earthquake struck on the 32nd anniversary of another major disaster: the 1985 quake that killed as many as 10,000 people in Mexico.
GOODBYE SUNSPOT, SEE YOU IN 2 WEEKS: Sunspot AR2673 materialized with shocking speed on Sept. 3rd. Three days later it unleashed the strongest solar flare in more than a decade, an X9.3-class eruption that hurled a CME directly at Earth. Now this memorable sunspot is about to disappear.
During the late hours of Sept. 7th, a CME hit Earth's magnetic field. It was fast-moving debris from a monster X9-class solar flare the day before. By the time night fell in Alaska, a severe (G4-class) geomagnetic storm was in progress. The auroras were seen in at least 18 states – quite unsual.
Also, the current coronal hole has solar winds flowing from this coronal hole could brush against Earth's magnetic field on Sept. 13th. Source Space Weather
Watch the Evolution of Sunspot AR2673
A SOLAR STORM IS COMING: On Sept. 4th at approximately 2030 UT, active sunspot AR2673 hurled a CME toward Earth: movie. NOAA analysts are still modeling the cloud's trajectory. At first glance, the CME appears likely to reach our planet on Sept. 6th with the possibility of moderately strong (G2-class) geomagnetic storms when it arrives.
A FURIOUS TRANSFORMATION: What a difference a day can make. On Saturday, Sept. 2nd, sunspot AR2673 was an unremarkable speck largely ignored by forecasters. On Sunday, Sept. 3rd, it underwent a furious transformation.
AR2673 expanded more than 10-fold in a single day, suddenly becoming one of the largest sunspots of the year. The behemoth sunspot has continued to grow and now, on Sept. 5th, it has a 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbors energy for X-class solar flares. Any such explosion today would be geoeffective as the active region is directly facing Earth. Possible outcomes include strong shortwave radio blackouts, Earth-directed CMEs and geomagnetic storms later this week.

Sun Coronal Flares: Sept. 5, 2017
Major X-class flare: X9.3 from geoeffective AR 2673, CME produced - the strongest flare of the current cycle
A major X-class solar flare erupted from geoeffective Active Region 2673 peaking as X9.3 at 12:02 UTC on September 6, 2017. The event started at 11:53, peaked at 12:02 and ended at 12:10 UTC. This is the second X-class solar flare of the day. It comes just hours after a long-duration X2.2 at 09:33 UTC. It is also the strongest solar flare of the current solar cycle (Solar Cycle 24).
Radio signatures suggest a strong Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was produced during this event. The location of this region favors Earth-directed CMEs.The last time our star erupted with an X-class flare was on May 5, 2015 - X2.7.
The Next Total Solar Eclipse: 2024
On Monday, April 8, 2024, the United States will experience our next total solar eclipse, passing from the southwest to the northwest. Here's a look at the path of totality for the 2024 eclipse using maps by cartographer Michael Zeiler The Eclipse will hit North America at the coast in Mexico, proceeds into Texas – crossing the big cities of Austin, Fort Worth, and Dallas - and then proceed northeast into the United States. In Arkansas it will pass over the capital of Little Rock. It the passes over the southeast corner of Missouri, passing into Illinois where it crosses over the town of Carbondale which saw the total eclipse of 2017. The northern majority of Ohio will also view the eclipse path, it then passes over a large section of New York State. It then exits the United States with its passage over Maine, then affecting a large part of Canada’s New Brunswick. Then Newfoundland island will be the last location in North America that will be affected by the total solar eclipse of 2024.
California lawmakers extend landmark climate change law
California lawmakers voted Monday, Jult 17, 2017,to extend a climate change initiative that Gov. Jerry Brown holds up as a model for states and nations looking to lower carbon emissions. Brown portrays the initiative, which would have ended in 2020, as essential for the survival of civilization.

One of the largest icebergs ever recorded broke off from an ice shelf in Antarctica, British scientists announced Wednesday.The 1 trillion ton iceberg, with twice of the volume of Lake Erie, broke off from the Larsen C ice shelf between Monday and Wednesday, according to Project MIDAS, which has been monitoring the shelf. At 2,200 square miles, the chunk of floating ice is nearly the size of Delaware.The iceberg is likely to be named A68. Over the past several months, an ever-lengthening and widening crack in the ice shelf captivated the world. Now, the 120-mile crack first spotted in 2011 finally made its way back to the sea, "calving" off the massive berg.
"The iceberg is one of the largest recorded and its future progress is difficult to predict," said Adrian Luckman, a professor of Swansea University and the lead investigator of Project MIDAS. "It may remain in one piece but is more likely to break into fragments. Some of the ice may remain in the area for decades, while parts of the iceberg may drift north into warmer waters."
Previously, he said the iceberg breaking off "will fundamentally change the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula." The calving reduced the size of the ice shelf by some 12%.
“We have been anticipating this event for months, and have been surprised how long it took for the rift to break through the final few kilometers (miles) of ice," Luckman said. "We will continue to monitor both the impact of this calving event on the Larsen C ice shelf, and the fate of this huge iceberg."

May 19, 2017 - No seeds were lost but the ability of the rock vault to provide failsafe protection against all disasters is now threatened by climate changeIt was designed as an impregnable deep-freeze to protect the world’s most precious seeds from any global disaster and ensure humanity’s food supply forever. But the Global Seed Vault, buried in a mountain deep inside the Arctic circle, has been breached after global warming produced extraordinary temperatures over the winter, sending meltwater gushing into the entrance tunnel
Implications of the Arctic permafrost thaw
January 19, 2012 - Of the many "Elephants in the Room" in the climate change debate, none are larger than the potential release to atmosphere of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane contained in the Arctic permafrost. Preliminary findings from the latest research, discussed at the American Geophysical Union's annual conference in San Francisco in December 2011, highlighted the extreme risks that humanity is now exposed to from global warming.
The Arctic has been warming 2-3 times faster than the global average, one consequence being that the volume of Arctic sea ice has reduced dramatically, by around 80% in summer since 1979, far faster than expected. If current trends continue, the Arctic may be sea-ice-free in summer by around 2015, and all year by around 2030. This would likely lead to further positive warming feedback as the ice albedo effect diminishes, accelerating melt of the Greenland ice sheet, ultimately contributing several metres of sea level rise.
Such warming would also accelerate thawing of the Arctic permafrost, which contains twice as much carbon as the atmosphere. Releasing that carbon would accelerate global warming past tipping points which create a climate far less conducive to human evolution. The permafrost, along with clathrates on the seabed, contain large quantities of methane, with a warming potential twenty-five-times greater than CO2.
The "End" of the Mayan calendar, Solar Flares and Earth
Changes Carl Johan Calleman, September 30, 2011 (11 Eb), 8th day of
the sixth night of the Ninth wave
We have now celebrated the Cosmic Convergence and there is less than one night and one day before the fulfillment of the evolutionary plan for all of creation (or at least the attainment of the top level). As predicted the Ninth wave of this plan, which is coming to a close together with the other waves of the Mayan calendar on October 28, 2011, has brought a tremendous frequency increase to the world. This has been experienced on a personal level by many, but it has also been easily visible in the spread of political and economical chaos in large parts of the world. The current instability is evident not only in what is actually happening, but also in the constant shifts in how events or developments are perceived and reported. Greece, for instance, is one day said to be bankrupt, another fully afloat with the help of the troika, and the next day it is again said to be bankrupt. One day the Ghaddafi regime has fallen and another it is again fighting only to have fallen the next day again.....read full article here.
Transmission of Light: The Pituitary Dimensional Attunement - A Hathor Planetary Message Through Tom Kenyon
From our perspective the ascension process can be viewed as two converging
energetic streams. The first involves your KA body, your subtle energy body
(i.e. your etheric twin or spiritual double). Any method that raises the
vibratory rate of the KA is a method for ascension. The second stream involves
the physical body and the transformation of matter into light. The complete
metamorphosis of matter into light is a very advanced form of ascension,
and is generally only seen in highly developed Initiates. However, the seed
forms of this metamorphosis can, and do, present themselves in various stages
of the ascension process. The sound meditation we wish to share with you
is a vehicle to increase the inflow of spiritual light (i.e. interdimensional
light,) into your endocrine system. During the ascension process the hormones
that comprise your biological sea and the inner realities of your body go
through a refinement. This sound meditation is a gentle yet potent means
to facilitate this upward movement...read

New Research Shows Exceptional Slowdown In Major Atlantic Ocean Currents Posted by Greg Laden on March 23, 2015
Climate scientists have noticed a disturbing pattern in the North Atlantic. This is the relative cooling of surface waters in the area fed by the Gulf Stream. This pattern has emerged over recent decades, and may portend very rapid and potentially disruptive climate change in the upcoming decades.
Life on this Earth Just Changed - The North AtlanticCurrent is Gone
The latest satellite data establishes that the North Atlantic Current (also called the North Atlantic Drift) no longer exists and along with it the Norway Current. These two warm water currents are actually part of the same system that has several names depending on where in the Atlantic Ocean it is. The entire system is a key part of the planet's heat regulatory system; it is what keeps Ireland and the United Kingdom mostly ice free and the Scandinavia countries from being too cold; it is what keeps the entire world from another Ice Age. This Thermohaline Circulation System is now dead in places and dying in others.
The most current data continues to show a dying of the entire Thermohaline Circulation System in the Atlantic Ocean. This is indicative of the fact that the dispersants have caused the oil to remain in place below the surface, and according to most reports remain in almost full amounts (up to 80%) long after the BP Oil Disaster began. Since there is no current way to remove this massive amount of free flowing oil below the sea at depths up to one mile deep, it is apt to continue to effect any natural recovery of the Thermohaline Circulation System.
So what does this mean? Violent mixing of the seasons, crop failures, and increased drought and floods in diverse places is now daily news since the April 20th 2010 BP Oil Volcano. They have killed the pacemaker of world climate in the worlds of Dr Zangari PhD. Dr Mike Coffman PhD geologist resource climatologist, and Dr Tim Ball PhD climatologist have confirmed that if this data is correct, that an ice age and massive climate shift with famine is now imminent. We are now seeing Russia stop all delivery of wheat crops on prior contracts, and most sources of staple food crops moving worldwide in a crisis of famine. The Gulf Stream and related currents are effectively DEAD. This should enrage the public and bring forth scientists to challenge and support the data and analysis, for the consequences to the civilization of mankind and ecological collapse have global consequence producing famine, death and massive population migration away from zones of advancing ice age and regions unfit for human habitation.
UCSB Geologist Discovers Pattern in Earth's Long-Term Climate Record - April 6, 2010
(Santa Barbara, Calif.) In an analysis of the past 1.2 million years, UC Santa Barbara geologist Lorraine Lisiecki discovered a pattern that connects the regular changes of the Earth's orbital cycle to changes in the Earth's climate. The finding is reported in this week's issue of the scientific journal Nature Geoscience.
Mass Extinction Threat: Earth on Verge of Huge Reset Button? - 02 September 2010
Mass extinctions have served as huge reset buttons that dramatically changed the diversity of species found in oceans all over the world, according to a comprehensive study of fossil records. The findings suggest humans will live in a very different future if they drive animals to extinction, because the loss of each species can alter entire ecosystems.
Some scientists have speculated that effects of humans - from hunting to climate change - are fueling another great mass extinction. A few go so far as to say we are entering a new geologic epoch, leaving the 10,000-year-old Holocene Epoch behind and entering the Anthropocene Epoch, marked by major changes to global temperatures and ocean chemistry, increased sediment erosion, and changes in biology that range from altered flowering times to shifts in migration patterns of birds and mammals and potential die-offs of tiny organisms that support the entire marine food chain.
Edible Nanostructures - Compounds made from renewable materials could be used for gas storage, food technologies --- Sugar, salt, alcohol and a little serendipity led a Northwestern University research team to discover a new class of nanostructures that could be used for gas storage and food and medical technologies.

Nano-Based RFID Tags Could Replace Bar Codes: ScienceDaily (Mar. 19, 2010) - Long lines at store checkouts could be history if a new technology created in part at Rice University comes to pass.
Rice researchers, in collaboration with a team led by Gyou-jin Cho at Sunchon National University in Korea, have come up with an inexpensive, printable transmitter that can be invisibly embedded in packaging. It would allow a customer to walk a cart full of groceries or other goods past a scanner on the way to the car; the scanner would read all items in the cart at once, total them up and charge the customer's account while adjusting the store's inventory.
RFID tags are almost everywhere already. The tiny electronic transmitters are used to identify and track products and farm animals. They're in passports, library books and devices that let drivers pass through tollbooths without digging for chang

The Arctic! The Inuit submission to the UN for COP-15: We've worked very hard to get this video to the United Nations for COP-15. Here it is!!! Ukiutatuq Takuguk! is ready for the world to watch!!! It will be presented in Copenhagen at Denmark's National Gallery this upcoming week. The film features Sheila Watt-Cloutier giving her speech at the Lafontaine Baldwin Symposium held this past spring in Iqaluit and footage from Pangnirtung, Resolute Bay and Igloolik. Enjoy!!!
"The tilting of the earth changes everything": Arguably, the most bizarre, fascinating and perhaps groundbreaking of all observations we've heard from Inuit is that they believe our world has tilted on its axis and this contributes to climate change. Watch the video from Igloolik elder Japiti Palluq talking about the impacts of a tilted earth, and unpack the traditional knowledge and science on this issue. Elders across Nunavut have noticed that the sun and stars have changed their position in the sky. The sun is now rising higher and staying longer than it used to. Importantly, in the far north, you must remember that the sun goes below the horizon for a large part of the year, and therefore Inuit are very familiar with its celestial pattern. Indeed, Inuit we're talking with are telling us stories about how in the old days, during the dark months, they would travel the land by dog team using stars as their navigational tools. So, when Inuit talk about the sun and stars, they do so with an intimate knowledge of these systems.
CREATE YOUR OWN CARBON PIGGY BANK: COMPOST!
According to the Rodale Institute, organic farms that use compost can sequester carbon at a rate of up to 3,200 kg/ha/yr. Under the Kyoto Clean Development Mechanism, cities in the Global South are composting their organic waste (wood, straw, coffee residues, fresh green material and manure) to create carbon credits. Some US cities have also begun municipal composting. San Francisco has the nation's first mandatory composting law. But it's not just farmers and cities, you can compost at home! So, if you haven't already, take your food, lawn, garden waste - even poop - and make your very own carbon piggy bank: COMPOST!
Ribbon In Space: October 15th, 2009: From Dave McComas, IBEX Principal Investigator
Today is the day we have all been waiting for-when the IBEX first heliospheric results and sky maps are unveiled to the scientific community and public audience for the first time! The first results are summarized in five papers published online today by Science Magazine. They chronicle the remarkable discovery of a bright, narrow band of ENA emissions that was totally unpredicted by any previous theories or models and that snakes between the two Voyager spacecraft, but remained totally undetected by either of them. The ribbon appears to be ordered by the external magnetic field in the interstellar medium, which imprints our heliosphere in a very strong, but not yet understood way. In addition, the IBEX team has just published the first ever direct detection of interstellar neutral hydrogen and oxygen, drifting into the heliosphere from the interstellar medium. Together, these truly remarkable observations show just how little we currently understand about the outer reaches of our heliosphere and our place in the galaxy and just how much our Small Explorer mission-IBEX-has to teach us....

Black hole confirmed in Milky Way
BBC News: There is a giant black hole at the centre of our galaxy, a 16-year study by German astronomers has confirmed. The black hole, said to be 27,000 light years from Earth, is four million times bigger than the Sun, according to the paper in The Astrophysical Journal. Black holes are objects whose gravity is so great that nothing - including light - can escape them. According to Dr Robert Massey, of the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS), the results suggest that galaxies form around giant black holes in the way that a pearl forms around grit.
1/5 of Coral Reefs Lost Due to Acid-Filled Oceans: If carbon dioxide emissions remain unchecked, many of the remaining reefs will be lost in the next few decades, experts said today at a U.N. meeting in Poland.

by F. William Engdahl Bill Gates, Rockefeller and the GMO giants know something we don't? No project is more interesting at the moment than a curious project in one of the world's most remote spots, Svalbard. Bill Gates is investing millions in a seed bank on the Barents Sea near the Arctic Ocean, some 1,100 kilometers from the North Pole. Gates along with the Rockefeller Foundation, Monsanto Corporation, Syngenta Foundation and the Government of Norway, among others, is investing in what is called the 'doomsday seed bank.' Officially the project is named the Svalbard Global Seed Vault on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, part of the Svalbard island group. What is the "real" purpose for this project - and what does it indicate for our Earth in the future?

The aura (the magnetic halo) of the fault line extends out equally on each side of the fault line. The distance of the aura from the line varies directly with the degree of stress at the fault surfaces. Therefore when the width of this aura widens rapidly, over time, that fault line is primed for a tremor. For details on how to check this, complete directions are on the EarthNews page.
