India's Cyclone Phailin leaves trail of destruction

india cyclone 2013

Indian disaster teams have begun a relief operation after Cyclone Phailin crashed into eastern areas, forcing up to one million people to flee.

Officials are assessing the damage and providing food to hundreds of thousands who spent the night in shelters. The cyclone wrecked many coastal homes, uprooted trees and blocked roads in Andhra Pradesh and Orissa states.

Five deaths have so far been linked to the cyclone, far fewer than were initially feared. In 1999 a cyclone killed more than 10,000 people in Orissa. But the authorities said they were better prepared this time.

cyclone phailin category 4
Tropical Cyclone Phailin intensified rapidly in the Bay of Bengal on Thursday and is now headed for a landfall along the eastern coast of India. Estimated top sustained winds increased from 65 mph to 155 mph in just 24 hours, according to Dr. Jeff Masters of Weather Underground.

As of Saturday morning (U.S. time), Phailin was rated as the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, with maximum sustained winds around 150 mph. According to a NOAA weather satellite, Phailin's central pressure bottomed out to 910 mbar, allowing winds to reach 175 mph on Friday evening.

category 5 india
India is expected to suffer catastrophic impacts from Severe Tropical Cyclone Phailin in less than 12 hours.

Destructive winds well over 160 kph (100 mph) and flooding rain of at least 100-200 mm (4-8 inches) is expected across a wide area. There will be a crippling storm surge of 4-6 meters (14-20 feet), as well as wind gusts to 250 kph, near the landfall point of Phailin which is expected across northeastern India Saturday morning EDT. Anyone residing in the states of Orissa or eastern Andhra Pradesh is encouraged to take proper precautions and prepare for life-threatening conditions.
India's monster storm may be worse than Katrina

cyclone phailin disaster
India's weather office may be underestimating the severity of a cyclone which is hurtling towards the east coast, a meteorologist warned on Friday, adding that it could be worse than Hurricane Katrina which devastated parts of the United States in 2005.

Cyclone Phailin is forecast to hit the coast between Kalingapatnam in Andhra Pradesh state and Paradip in Odisha state late on Saturday with a maximum wind speed of 220 km per hour (135mph), the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said in its latest bulletin. But both London-based Tropical Storm and the U.S. Navy's Joint Typhoon Warning Centre forecast winds reaching 315 km per hour (195 mph) on landfall, classifying Phailin as a Category 5 storm - the most powerful.
How Bad Will Cyclone Phailin Be for India?

cyclone phailin
Disaster looms for India as ferocious Cyclone Phailin, currently equivalent in strength to a Category 5 hurricane, bears down on the subcontinent ahead of its expected landfall tomorrow night (Oct. 12), local time.

Experts say that the enormous and powerful storm, with maximum sustained winds of more than 160 mph (260 km/h), will bring a "catastrophic" storm surge, the water that a storm's winds push in front of it and that inundate a coastline as the storm makes landfall, said Hal Needham, a climatologist at Louisiana State University. The storm surge is expected to reach heights of 20 feet (6 meters) -- The storm is likely to be "as bad or worse" than a cyclone that followed a similar trajectory in 1999, called Odisha cyclone for the area it hit. That storm killed about 15,000 people and caused $4.5 billion in damages, said Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist for the online publication Quartz. Phailin (pronounced pie-leen) has now tied the record, with Odisha, for the largest cyclone on record in the Indian Ocean.
The Three Stages of US Martial Law: “What Will It Be Like?”
The News - Current Events
October 11, 2013
martial law
America has gone from being annoyed with their government to the point of resisting their government. In my previous article, I have detailed how state governors, veterans, truckers and just average everyday citizens are resisting the tyrannical and egregious abrogation’s of the United States Constitution. The police state crackdown mechanisms are in place which are designed to break the back of any resistance to federal authority, legitimate or not.

The net effect of the establishment of “Police State America” is that it is designed to subjugate the populace and stamp out any remaining vestiges of Constitutional liberties and create a society where the state is all-powerful. With America’s new found spirit of civil liberty being expressed through acts of civil disobedience, martial law is being put into place. When one couples this undeniable fact with the fact that President Obama is under extreme pressure and is struggling to maintain control of the country, these measures are going to be rolled in a style reminiscent of the Shock and Awe style witnessed in Gulf War I.
Could life on Earth end on March 16, 2880?

2880 asteroid impact
  • Asteroid 1950 DA has a 0.3 per cent chance of hitting Earth in 867 years
  • This represents a risk 50% greater than an impact from all other asteroids
  • If it were to hit, it would do so with an force of 44,800 megatonnes of TNT

Doomsday, it seems, has come and gone countless times. But one particular prediction for the end of the world has been weighing on the mind of astronomers for more than half a century. Scientists at Nasa have been watching an asteroid, named 1950 DA, which is currently on a path to collide with Earth on March 16, 2880.
Sun unleashes strongest solar flare In months

solar flare october 2013
The strongest solar flare in nearly two months erupted from the sun Tuesday, causing a minor geomagnetic storm as charged particles from the sun passed by the planet.

The sun unleashed the moderate M2.8-class solar flare at 9:48 p.m. EDT (0148 GMT on Oct. 9). NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) recorded a video of the October solar flare's dramatic genesis. M-class solar flares are generally considered to be mid-range solar storms, but Tuesday's eruption was still the strongest in months due to the sun's oddly quiet activity. X-class flares are the most powerful type of solar storm, with C-class flares classified as solar tempests at a step below M-class events.
Japanese doctors ordered to cover up mass radiation sickness across population

fukushima radiation disaster
A substantial number of Japanese have suddenly begun suffering nosebleeds that some reports indicate are likely tied to radiation poisoning from the damaged nuclear plants at Fukushima.

The reports are based on a series of tweets, allegedly from Japanese citizens who report the nosebleeds, along with photos of blood-soaked rags and bandages. Many of the reports are flowing through Facebook. If true, the damaged Fukushima plant continues to wreak havoc

One site says that Japanese doctors who have been treating those afflicted by the massive radiation released when the plant was damaged by a major earthquake-caused tsunami on March 11, 2011, know that their patients have radiation sickness, but they are being prevented from discussing it publicly.
China Preparing An American Invasion Due To Default?

china invasion of america
Most of us that grew up with the cold war had nightmares of the above scenario. Movies like “Red Dawn (1984)“, “Invasion USA (1985)“, “Amerika (1985)“, and “The Day After(1983)” were just some of the titles in a world gone mad on the brink of war that fueled our imaginations. Now details are beginning to pour in years later that is even more stunning and chilling then anything we could dream up. China may be preparing for an American invasion without every having to fire one shot.

“[America's] patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within”-Joseph Stalin 1946

In 2011, a group by the name of “Citizens Against Government Waste” was founded. They encouraged people to join and call out government waste and our spending policies before it was too late. They had paid for and put out a television ad before the 2012 Presidential campaign. For those of you that don’t remember it you can see it here:

Meet the asteroid that might hit Earth in 2880

2880 asteroid
There are over 10,000 near-Earth objects (NEOs) that have been identified so far — asteroids and comets of varying sizes that approach the Earth’s orbital distance to within about 28 million miles. Of the 10,000 discoveries, roughly 10 percent are larger than six-tenths of a mile in size — large enough to have disastrous global consequences should one impact the Earth. This is one of them.

First discovered in February 1950, 1950 DA is a 1.1-kilometer-wide asteroid that was observed for 17 days and then disappeared from view. Then it was spotted again on Dec. 31, 2000 — literally on the eve of the 21st century. Coupled with radar observations made a few weeks later in March 2001 it was found that, along with a rather high rotation rate (2.1 hours), asteroid 1950 DA has a trajectory that will bring it very close to Earth on March 16, 2880. How close? Close enough that, within a specific 20-minute window, a collision can not be entirely ruled out.
Risk management can help poor people overcome crises and get ahead
The News - Disaster Preparedness
October 09, 2013
overcome crises
Drought, pandemic, tsunami, violent crime, financial meltdown – the world is full of risks, and the poor are often most vulnerable to their effects. Instead of simply responding to crises, aid workers and policymakers should anticipate and help to guard against such rare and potentially devastating events, according to the World Bank's world development report 2014, published this week.

"We're advocating a sea change in the way risk is managed," the World Bank president, Jim Yong Kim, says. "Our new approach calls for individuals and institutions to shift from being 'crisis fighters' to proactive and systematic risk managers." -- After the world suffered major crises in 2008, including shocks to the global financial system and spikes in the prices of food and fuel, the concept of risk management has gained prominence in international development. The links between risk, livelihoods and poverty are all too clear, the World Bank report says.
Water scarcity by 2030: True for every second person on earth, UN says

earth water shortage 2030
About a half of the global population could be facing water shortages by 2030 when demand would exceed water supply by 40 percent, says United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. Opening the Water Summit in Budapest, Hungary on Tuesday, the UN chief warned against unsustainable use of water resources.

Water is wasted and poorly used by all sectors in all countries. That means all sectors in all countries must cooperate for sustainable solutions. We must use what we have more equitably and wisely,” Ban said, as cited by the UN website. -- “By 2030 nearly half the global population could be facing water scarcity. Demand could outstrip supply by 40 per cent.”
Is Homeland Security Preparing for the Next Wall Street Collapse?

america collapse
Reports are that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is engaged in a massive, covert military buildup. An article in the Associated Press in February confirmed an open purchase order by DHS for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. According to an op-ed in Forbes, that’s enough to sustain an Iraq-sized war for over twenty years. DHS has also acquired heavily armored tanks, which have been seen roaming the streets. Evidently somebody in government is expecting some serious civil unrest. The question is, why?

Recently revealed statements by former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the height of the banking crisis in October 2008 could give some insights into that question. An article on BBC News on September 21, 2013, drew from an explosive autobiography called Power Trip by Brown’s spin doctor Damian McBride, who said the prime minister was worried that law and order could collapse during the financial crisis.

5 things holding back humanity
Humans believe in a lot of stupid shit, and we do something stupid as a result of those beliefs about, oh, once every five seconds. And sure, most of you reading this are educated types who don't believe in Bigfoot or psychic readings, but there are a whole bunch of equally stupid/harmful superstitions out there that are so commonly held that we don't even think of them as such. Very few of us don't fall victim to at least a few of them.

In fact, I'm something of an expert on this because I believe literally hundreds of idiotic things, and also because I wrote a ridiculous best-seller about an apocalypse brought about by people believing in apocalypses. And I say that, in order to keep humanity from imploding, we have to give up believing ... [CRACKED]

  • French filmmakers recorded timelapse videos at locations around Paris
  • Using photo-editing tools, they removed all signs of people and cars 
  • It is set to an eerie soundtrack with soundbites about the fragility of life
  • The four-minute film ends with tagline 'Don't forget out planet is fragile'

City streets left abandoned, desolate Ferris wheels turning with no-one on board and traffic lights aimlessly switching from red to green without a single car in sight to see them change. These are just some of the haunting images from a short video by French filmmakers showing what post-apocalyptic Paris could look like. Called Hypocentre, the four-and-a-half minute film shows the usually bustling areas around the Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees and the streets of Montaparnasse empty and devoid of people and cars.

Pompei disaster
  • Violent attack took place on the island of Öland, just off the Swedish coast
  • Bodies of the victims have remained 'frozen in time' since the 5th century
  • Why the fort has been left untouched for 1,500 years remains a mystery

Swedish archeologists have uncovered the remains of a brutal fifth century massacre at a remote island fort, described as being 'frozen in time' like the ruins of the Roman city of Pompeii. Bodies of victims slaughtered in the violence on the island of Öland, just off the Swedish coast, have remained untouched for centuries, and were found to resemble a modern day crime scene. Before they attack, the fort appears to have been a peaceful and prosperous place, where people lived comfortably in small huts and reared livestock for meat.
South Dakota blanketed by several feet of snow as storms hit Great Plains

snow storm 2013 start
In the span of 24 hours, the scenic Black Hills in South Dakota were coated in up to three and a half feet (1.1 meters) of wet, heavy snow. South Dakota is one of several Great Plains states to have been hit hard by a storm system that has caused millions of dollars in damage. A National Weather Service meteorologist, Katie Pojorlie, said the snow was expected to end later on Saturday, giving people a chance to start digging out from the unusual, record-setting early fall snowstorm.

But wintery weather wasn't the only thing wrapped into the powerful cold front, as thunderstorms brought heavy rain, hail and as many as nine tornadoes to Nebraska and Iowa. Fifteen people in northeast Nebraska were injured in a tornado on Friday, and three died in a car accident on a snow-slicked Nebraska road. Forecasters said the front would eventually combine with other storms to make for a wild and probably very wet weekend for much of the central and south-eastern US.
