    Geologists say the 6.4-magnitude quake will produce an aftershock which could be even more powerful

    The new ShakeAlert app in Los Angeles detected the quake but did not send out a public notification

    The quake caused fires, cracked roads and broke power lines in California, but caused no serious injuries. It was the most powerful earthquake in Southern California since a 7.1-force quake in October 1999

    Surge in Yellowstone geyser activity…
    The Steamboat Geyser in Yellowstone National Park is approaching a record number of eruptions The Steamboat Geyser at Yellowstone National Park is no Old Faithful. The world's tallest active geyser -- whose major eruptions shoot water more than 300 feet into the air -- is known to be unpredictable. But if there was ever a year to witness Steamboat's spectacular surge of water, this might be it. We're just over halfway through 2019 and the Steamboat Geyser has already erupted 25 times, according to the US Geological Survey. That puts it on track to surpass last year's record of 32 eruptions -- the largest number ever recorded in a year. The record before that was 29 eruptions in 1964. The Steamboat Geyser erupted seven times just last month alone, the USGS said. June's outbursts, which occurred on the 1st, 7th, 12th, 15th, 19th, 23rd, and 28th, also smashed the record for the shortest interval between eruptions -- just over three days.

    I spotted this warning below from another site for 2020 and just want to mention that we were in the 7. San Francisco earthquake in 1989. This was when parts of the San Francisco Bay Bridge collapsed and the freeway near where I used to work collapsed crushing those underneath. Being prepared is important. Power went out, signal lights went out, communications was a mess. The floor to ceiling book cases crashed down in my office sending plants and books all over. We were in the conference room on the 3rd level next to the library when the quake hit. I thought the ceiling was going to collapse. Had PTS for months afterwards due to the aftershocks. Large quakes are dangerous and scary. Aftershocks are scary. Not having essential supplies is scary. Being prepared with supplies on hand gives peace of mind in the midst of a disaster. Be smart, stock up. Be prepared.


    "Frankie: Attention Citizens of California, Attention Citizens of Oregon, Attention Citizens of Washington, Attention Citizens of Vancouver British Columbia Canada and Attention Citizens of Baja California Mexico.  Earthquake Warning has been Issued for California and it will be 9.0 or Greater Magnitude Earthquake.

    Since Thursday, Southern California has been hit with a series of earthquakes and aftershocks all the way up to two that measured 6.4 and a whopping 7.1 magnitude. The epicenter of both quakes was near the town of Ridgecrest, with a population of nearly 29,000 people.

    The Earthquakes
    On the Fourth of July, the strongest earthquake in 20 years struck, with the epicenter in the Mojave Desert. This earthquake registered a 6.4 on the Richter scale. The tremblor resulted in cracked roads, leaking gas lines, house fires, and multiple injuries.


    Among the aftershocks was a 5.4, at 4 am Friday morning.

    But that wasn’t the worst of it. More than 1700 aftershocks hit the area, which, according to seismologist Zachary Ross, “might be slightly higher than average.” Initially, it was believed that the Independence Day earthquake was the main one, but it turned out to be a foreshock.

    And then, at 8:19 Friday night, a 7.1 struck 11 miles from Ridgecrest.

    “The quake was felt downtown as a rolling motion that seemed to last at least a half-minute. It was felt as far away as Las Vegas, and the USGS says it also was felt in Mexico.”

    …San Bernardino County firefighters reported cracked buildings and a minor injury…

    ….There were reports of trailers burning at a mobile home, and State Route 178 in Kern County was closed by a rockslide and roadway damage.

    But Kern County Fire Chief David Witt says it appears no buildings collapsed. He also says there have been a lot of ambulance calls but no reported fatalities…

    …Mark Ghillarducci, director of the California Office of Emergency Services, says there are “significant reports of structure fires, mostly as a result of gas leaks or gas line breaks throughout the city.” He also says there’s a report of a building collapse in tiny Trona. He says there could be even more serious damage to the region.


    California governor Gavin Newsome has declared a State of Emergency. There have been fires, gas leaks, power outages, water outages, road damage, and rock slides. While only one building was reported to have collapsed, Kern County Fire Chief David Witt warned that other buildings may have been weakened after being hit by two quakes in a matter of just over 24 hours.

    Earth Changes from September 2017 - to present / Biblical Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Floods, Volcanic Activity, Fires, Snow Ice Storms - Page 15 Ridgecrest-market
    Los Angeles was rocked by the quakes.
    Although no major damage was reported, Los Angeles felt significant movement from the second earthquake.

    In downtown Los Angeles, 150 miles away, offices in skyscrapers rolled and rocked for at least 30 seconds.

    The Los Angeles commuter rail service Metrolink said on Twitter it has stopped service in the city of 4 million people for the time being.

    Disneyland in Orange County and Six Flags Magic Mountain in Santa Clarita closed their rides.

    Juan Fernandez and Sara Donchey, two news anchors for the local CBS affiliate in Los Angeles, were seen live on the air seeking shelter as the quake struck on Friday.

    ‘We are experiencing quite a bit of shaking if you bear with us a moment,’ Donchey said. ‘We’re making sure nothing is going to come down in the studio here.’ A visibly terrified Donchey then grabs Fernandez’s arm.

    ‘This is a very strong earthquake,’ she said.  ‘8:21 here and we’re experiencing very strong shaking. I think we need to get under the desk Juan.’ Donchey then got under the desk and the station cut to a commercial break. No major damage occurred in Los Angeles.

    The Naval Air Weapons Station in China Lake has evacuated all non-essential personnel and their families.

    Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake says it is not fully operational after back-to-back major earthquakes hit Southern California.

    The station said Saturday in a Facebook post that its non-essential personnel were evacuated.

    The installation in the Mojave Desert covers an area larger than Rhode Island and is the Navy’s largest single landholding.

    The Facebook post says normal operations were halted until further notice and it was not clear when they would resume. (source)

    The tiny town of Trona suffered extensive damage.
    Trona, known as “the gateway to Death Valley” because it’s the last town before the Mojave Desert, suffered extensive damage.

    Fire officials say as many as 50 structures in the small town of Trona were damaged by the magnitude 7.1 earthquake Friday night in Southern California.

    In addition, San Bernardino County Supervisor Robert Lovingood said Saturday that damaged water lines prompted FEMA to deliver a tractor-trailer full of bottled water to the town, and firefighters were checking numerous reports of gas leaks.

    The town was temporarily cut off after the earthquake, when officials shut down a highway connecting Trona to Ridgecrest because of rockslides and cracks in the roadway.

    Julia Doss, who maintains the Trona Neighborhood Watch page on Facebook, said residents reported that chimneys and entire walls collapsed during the quake. She said the only food store in town has been shuttered.

    If you’ve ever driven through Trona, you know it’s not a wealthy town. Residents will be hard hit by repair bills.

    It’s not over for the Ridgecrest area.
    According to PBS, the affected area can expect hundreds more aftershocks.

    Since this region is currently experiencing two earthquake sequences at the same time (the one caused by the 6.4 quake on the Fourth of July and the one caused by the 7.1 shake on July 5), residents should prepare for a boatload of aftershocks less than 6.0 magnitude.

    The U.S. Geological Survey predicts a greater than 99% chance for a moderate earthquake (magnitude 5.0) within the next week. They also expect the region to experience 360 to 660 minor aftershocks (around magnitude 3.0) in the same amount of time. (source)

    Dr. Lucy Jones, a seismologist for the California Institute of Technology (CalTech), says that the aftershocks of this quake could go on for years.

    People throughout Southern California have been warned to prepare for the possibility of even more strong earthquakes. Go here to learn how to survive an earthquake and check out my book, Be Ready for Anything to get prepared for a lengthy aftermath.

    Was this “The Big One”?
    While these two quakes shook things up pretty dramatically, they don’t even hold a candle to the long-expected “Big One,” according to seismologists.

    Seismologists say the “Big One” would be 125 times stronger than Thursday’s earthquake and 44 times stronger than the 1994 Northridge earthquake, which killed 57 people and caused $49 billion in economic losses. (source)

    Michael Snyder wrote of the quote above:

    Of course that figure is just an estimate and it is based on a hypothetical magnitude 7.8 earthquake.

    Theoretically, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake would release 7,943 times as much energy as the Ridgecraft earthquake, and that would easily be the most destructive natural disaster that we have ever seen in all of U.S. history up to this point.

    And please don’t think that such a quake can’t happen.  Scientists admit that the San Andreas fault has the potential to “move for many feet almost instantaneously”… (source)

    So, no, as big as it was, this was NOT “The Big One” that Californians have been dreading for decades. It wasn’t even on the same fault line as the one causing the most concern.  Read Snyder’s articlefor more details.

    Earth Changes from September 2017 - to present / Biblical Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Floods, Volcanic Activity, Fires, Snow Ice Storms - Page 15 Trona
    The aftermath
    Even in a small town like Ridgecrest and those surrounding it, looting and burglary has erupted after the quakes damaged buildings and took down critical infrastructure. Mayor Peggy Breeden told reporters that some “bad people” came into the community and tried to steal items from businesses.

    The mayor of Ridgecrest says there were two reports of burglaries in the Southern California city following the 7.1 earthquake Friday night. Mayor Peggy Breeden said Saturday that some “bad people” came into the community and tried to steal items from businesses. Police Chief Jed McLaughlin said one business was burglarized, with an expensive piece of equipment stolen. A home was also broken into and police are waiting to see what was taken. (source)

    Fortunately, it looks like the looting is relatively minor at this point. But when the legendary “Big One” strikes, people may not get so lucky.

    It’s important to remember that the aftermath of natural disasters can be the most dangerous time, particularly in areas with higher populations. Every prepper should have a home defense plan for situations such as these.

    Gov. Gavin Newsom says President Donald Trump has called him and expressed commitment to helping California recover from two earthquakes that hit the state in as many days.

    Speaking to reporters after touring the damage zone, Newsom said Saturday that he and Trump talked about the struggles California has been through, including two devastating wildfires that happened just six months ago.

    The Democratic governor said “there’s no question we don’t agree on everything, but one area where there’s no politics, where we work extremely well together, is our response to emergencies.”

    “He’s committed in the long haul, the long run, to help support the rebuilding efforts,” Newsom said of Trump.

    What preppers can learn
    It’s always important to study disasters when they occur. We can learn a lot, including what the emergency response looks like, what kind of damage was incurred, how soon the looters show up, and the struggles people face in the aftermath.

    During these two earthquakes, there was property damage but injuries were limited. A number of fires occurred, probably due to electrical systems shifting. Gas lines leaked, the power was out for many, and public water lines were damaged. There is no place to purchase food if you don’t have it, or to buy or acquire water. Anyone unprepared out there in the dryest desert in America is at the mercy of emergency responders.

    Evacuating isn’t easy due to cracked roads and rockslides. (This is why it’s always important to have multiple routes out and a versatile bug-out plan.) However, looters, said to be from out of town by Mayor Breeden, arrived fairly quickly.

    Earth Changes from September 2017 - to present / Biblical Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Floods, Volcanic Activity, Fires, Snow Ice Storms - Page 15 Fissures
    Will things calm down for the Ridgecrest area?
    Here’s hoping that the 7.1 is indeed, the biggest to hit these areas, although the once-per-minute aftershocks must surely be unsettling.

    Those living near the San Andreas fault line should take note of what happened in this small town and use the information to prepare for the Big One that is at least one hundred years overdue.

    Mandatory evacuations are ordered for at least 8,000 people as Tropical Storm Barry
    floods New Orleans and bears down on the Gulf Coast

    Videos: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7236753/Evacuations-ordered-10-000-people-Tropical-Storm-Barry-bears-New-Orleans.html

    Mandatory evacuations have been ordered for at least 8,000 people in parts of Louisiana ahead of a Tropical Storm Barry that could turn into a hurricane by the weekend. As of Thursday morning, the storm was still brewing in the Gulf of Mexico. According to the National Hurricane Center, the storm hasn't become a depression yet. The disturbance, which had already dumped as much as 8 inches of rain in just three hours over parts of metro New Orleans, was forecast to strengthen into a tropical depression by Thursday and then a tropical storm called Barry Thursday night. New Orleans officials warned that the potential hurricane could bring a coastal storm surge into the mouth of the Mississippi River capable of raising the river's height to 20 feet above sea level, high enough to overflow some sections of the levee system protecting the city. Louisiana Gov Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency on Wednesday. 'The storm system will likely produce storm surge, hurricane force winds,' he said at a news conference. 'No one should take this storm lightly.' National Guard troops are in place across the state, the governor said.

    Ho Hum... FWIW, This Year Has So Far Produced 84ea 6+ Earthquakes.... Thats 3X 'normal', BTW

    The Number Of Global Earthquakes Is 3 Times Above Normal
    Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

    Within the last 48 hours we have seen large earthquakes going off like firecrackers all along the Ring of Fire. As you will see below, a magnitude 6.1 quake just hit Japan, a magnitude 6.6 quake just hit Australia and a magnitude 7.3 earthquake just hit Indonesia. And of course all of this comes just about a week after southern California was hit by the two largest earthquakes that it has experienced in more than two decades.

    So is all of this shaking unusual? Just a few moments ago, I pulled up the most recent data from Earthquake Track, and what I discovered is more than just a little bit alarming. Looking at the entire globe, we have averaged 193 earthquakes of magnitude 1.5 or greater per day so far in 2019. That is very high, but it pales in comparison to what we have witnessed over the last week. Within the last seven days, our planet has experienced an average of more than 677 earthquakes of magnitude 1.5 or greater per day. That means that the number of global earthquakes right now is more than 3 times above normal.

    And the number of very large earthquakes is at a frighteningly high level as well. According to the USGS, there have been 121 earthquakes of at least magnitude 4.5 around the world within the last seven days, and that includes the magnitude 6.1 earthquake that just hit Japan.

    Incredibly, that quake in Japan brought the number of global earthquakes of magnitude 6.0 or greater that we have seen so far this year up to a grand total of 84. The following comes from the Big Wobble…

    Last nights quake brings the total of major quakes (mag 6+) to 84, incredibly all but 7 of them striking the Pacific Ring Of Fire.

    The last 38 major quakes this year, going back to the 3rd of May have occurred along the Pacific Ring Of Fire.

    But on Sunday we had to add two more to that total.

    The first actually tied the record for the largest earthquake that western Australia has ever seen…

    The equal-largest earthquake recorded in Australia has hit off the Kimberley coast, shaking items off shelves and stunning local residents who had never felt a tremor before.

    The 6.6 magnitude undersea quake struck at 3.39pm AEST on Sunday between Port Hedland and Broome, GeoScience Australia reported.

    The second was even larger. When a magnitude 7.3 earthquake hit Indonesia on Sunday, it sparked tsunami fears and made headlines all over the globe…

    A terrifying 7.3-magnitude earthquake has sparked panic after it rocked the remote Maluku islands in eastern Indonesia today.

    Scared residents were seen fleeing through the streets and heading for high ground, though no tsunami warning was issued after the land-based quake struck.

    None of this is “normal”. As I keep warning my readers, we have entered a time of tremendous global instability, and the U.S. is certainly not going to be exempt.

    In fact, we just witnessed a magnitude 4.0 earthquake in Montana. The following comes from Ricky Scaparo…

    yes, more plus pics, charts;

    Meanwhile, the shaking in southern California simply will not stop.  According to Cal Tech, there have been 10,303 earthquakes of all magnitudes in California and Nevada within the last seven days.

    In case you are wondering, that is not “normal” either.

    The magnitude 7.1 earthquake that we witnessed back on July 5th did not cause an enormous amount of damage because it happened in a very remote location.

    But we should definitely not take that quake lightly, because it was extremely powerful.  According to the Los Angeles Times, it actually “packed the energy of 45 nuclear bombs”…

    When the magnitude 7.1 earthquake ruptured the earth in the Mojave Desert, it packed the energy of 45 nuclear bombs of the type that fell on Hiroshima.

    Can you imagine if such a quake had happened in downtown Los Angeles?

    And if a magnitude 9.0 earthquake were to hit southern California someday, it would be 707 times more powerful than the magnitude 7.1 earthquake that we just witnessed.

    Hopefully such a quake is still a long way off, but we have witnessed renewed shaking in the region within the last 24 hours.  The following comes from the Express…

    California has since experienced a number of aftershocks with a seismic swarm hitting southern California in the past 24 hours.

    Over the course of the last 24 hours, there have been 762 earthquakes in California, 29 earthquakes were over a magnitude of 2.5.

    Unfortunately, this is not just a localized phenomenon.

    As I showed at the beginning of this article, the number of global earthquakes is three times above normal right now.

    Our entire planet is being greatly shaken, and many believe that what we have witnessed so far is just the beginning.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7259373/New-York-battered-heavy-rain-Tropical-Storm-Barry-leaving-one-person-dead.html

    Severe thunderstorm and flash flood alerts were issued for the tri-state area ahead of Wednesday evening
    Authorities in Connecticut said a large tree limb fell onto a car, killing a 21-year-old man behind the wheel
    The thunderstorms were triggered by the remnants of Storm Barry combined with a dip in the jet stream
    The storm brought gusty winds, frequent lightning, small hail and torrential downpours to the New York area
    The heavy showers left streets flooded, subway stations inundated and water gushing into train carriages
    In New Jersey, downpours left many drivers stranded and some roads temporarily closed due to flooding
    Dramatic time-lapse footage showed the storm rolling into Manhattan, engulfing the Empire State building
    Events including the annual Diner En Blanc in Manhattan and a Yankees game were called off
    Severe weather is set to continue with sweltering temperatures up to 98 forecast for the weekend

    In New Jersey, downpours left many drivers stranded and tow trucks were called in after drivers were unable to get through low-lying areas.

    Both directions of the Garden State Parkway in Irvington were temporarily shut down because the roadways were flooded, CBS2 reported.

    The Holland Tunnel in Jersey City was so flooded that cars were struggling to drive through, and the water line hit car bumpers in Hoboken, where pedestrians were wading through knee-deep water, WABC-TV reported.

    In Kearny, lightning is believed to have set fire to a landfill.

    NBC reported that more than 500 lightning strikes happened in and around New York city in just a 15-minute period at around 8 p.m., with some caught on camera, including in a dramatic photo of a lightning bolt striking One World Trade Center.

    Deadly heatwave to leave DC as hot as DEATH VALLEY this weekend as
    200M brace for temperatures in excess of 100F sparking NYC to declare an emergency and roads to buckle

    Passengers sizzle on New York City subway as SEVEN lines go down during evening commute with temperatures nearing 100 degrees ahead of weekend heatwave . The crushing mass of hot air is likely to blanket the region, home to a third of the U.S. population, through Sunday with little overnight relief, said meteorologist David Roth of the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center. 'There are 124 million people under a heat advisory or excessive heat warning - that's a third of the population,' Roth said. As of Friday, the heat wave sprawled from Kansas to the Atlantic Coast, and from South Carolina north to Maine. It was expected to intensify on Saturday and Sunday.

    A brutal heatwave is unfurling across two-thirds of the nation, blighting the east with temperatures that will make Washington DC feel as hot as Death Valley, and roast much of the country with 100-degree heat.

    The crushing mass of hot air is likely to blanket the region, home to a third of the U.S. population, through Sunday with little overnight relief, said meteorologist David Roth of the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center.

    'There are 124 million people under a heat advisory or excessive heat warning - that's a third of the population,' Roth said. As of Friday, the heat wave sprawled from Kansas to the Atlantic Coast, and from South Carolina north to Maine. It was expected to intensify on Saturday and Sunday.

    The heat index for DC is forecast at 111F for Saturday, within two degrees of the index expected for Death Valley.

    In Sioux Falls, South Dakota, soaring temperatures of 93F with a heat index of 107F were reported when portions of Insterstate 229 buckled and cracked.

    On Friday night, a massive power outage was reported in the Detroit metro area, affecting some 80,000 customers of DTE Energy.

    Fearing potential fatalities, New York City declared a state of local emergency and canceled a number of major outdoor events.

    'Hot weather is dangerous and can kill. People with chronic physical and mental health conditions should use air conditioning if they have it, and get to a cool, air conditioned place if they don't,' said New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot. On Friday, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the cancellation of OZY Fest, a festival scheduled for the weekend in Central Park featuring soccer star Megan Rapinoe, musician John Legend and 'Daily Show' host Trevor Noah.

    A de Blasio spokeswoman says a Times Square commemoration of the 1969 moon landing has been canceled, as well.

    Officials earlier announced the cancellation of the New York City Triathlon, which was scheduled for Sunday.

    Temperatures in the high 90s are forecast for Saturday and Sunday in New York, with a heat index well over 100.

    De Blasio has directed owners of office buildings over 100 feet tall to set thermostats to 78 degrees through Sunday to conserve energy.

    Amid fears of massive blackouts, utilities in the eastern half of the United States said they expect to have enough resources to meet power demand, but asked consumers to turn down air conditioners to avoid putting stress on the system.

    'I'm very confident,' Consolidated Edison Inc President Tim Cawley said when asked at a news conference if the utility, which serves New York City, could quickly respond to any outages in the country's most populous city. He said 4,000 employees were poised to work 12-hour shifts over the weekend.

    Last weekend, parts of Manhattan lost power for hours, darkening Broadway theaters, halting subways and closing restaurants and shops in a partial blackout blamed on a faulty piece of equipment.

    Early on Friday, as the heat intensified in downtown Madison, Wisconsin, 11,600 homes and businesses lost power after fires erupted at two substations near the state capitol.

    With temperatures forecast to hit 93F later in the day, Governor Tony Evers asked nonessential state workers to stay home. By midafternoon, power had been restored to all but about 3,500 customers, according to Madison Gas and Electric .

    On the East Coast, temperatures on Saturday were forecast to reach near 100F in Washington, and 99F in Philadelphia and New York, where it would feel more like 108F with high humidity. Much the same was in the forecast for Sunday.

    'It's crazy,' said Fonik Bitaly, 28, who was entering his sixth hour of work dressed as a costumed character, Batman, in New York City's Times Square. 'It's really, really hard to be outside right now. You need to drink lots of water or you'll be in serious trouble.'

    'As soon as you get outside, it's like 'Boom!' said Loig Loury, 32, who moved to New York from Paris last year. 'The heat attacks you.'

    To keep cool during past heat waves, suburban children typically ran under lawn sprinklers and city kids frolicked in the spray of fire hydrants, but the New York City Fire Department warned that special spray caps that firehouses hand out should be used to avoid creating a hazard.

    'If you open a fire hydrant without these caps, you endanger your neighbors because the water pressure drops and our firefighters are not able to fight fires,' FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro wrote on social media.

    On Tuesday, an Arctic heatwave hit the settlement of Alert, Canada causing temperatures to reach 70 degrees
    (21 degrees Celsius) for the very first time)


    'This is unprecedented': Climate scientists signal alarm as Arctic heatwave hits the northernmost settlement on the planet,
    causing temperatures to reach 70 DEGREES for the first time ever

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7267725/Climate-scientists-signal-alarm-Arctic-heatwave-hits-northernmost-settlement-planet.html

    On Tuesday, Alert, Canada saw temperatures of 70 degrees (21 degrees Celsius) for the very first time, shocking even the most hardened of environmental experts. David Phillips, the chief climatologist of Environment Canada, told CBC that the weather was 'unprecedented'.

    'It's not just half a degree or a 10th of a millimeter. It's like hitting a ball out of the ballpark. It is so different than what the previous record was,' he warned.

    Phillips claimed the temperature was the equivalent of New York reaching 111 degrees (44 degrees Celsius).  

    Meanwhile, Armel Castellan, a meteorologist at the Canadian environment ministry, called Alert's heatwave 'quite phenomenal'.

    'It’s an absolute record, we’ve never seen that before,' he told AFP.  Temperatures in the north have been at record levels in recent weeks.

    On July 4, Anchorage, Alaska saw the mercury rise to 90 degrees (32 degrees Celsius).  


    The city's average maximum temperature for July is considerably cooler, at just 65 degrees (19 degrees Celsius).

    A recent study published in the journal Nature Communications claimed that Arctic summers are the warmest they have been in 115,000 years.

    Meanwhile, two-thirds of the United States basked through searing heat on Friday, which is set to intensify across the weekend.

    The heatwave sprawled from Kansas to the Atlantic Coast, and from South Carolina north to Maine.

    The heat index for Washington, D.C.  is forecast at 111 degrees (44 degrees Celsius)  for Saturday, within two degrees of the index expected for California's Death Valley.

    'There are 124 million people under a heat advisory or excessive heat warning - that's a third of the population,' meteorologist David Roth of the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center said Friday.

    Earth Changes from September 2017 - to present / Biblical Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Floods, Volcanic Activity, Fires, Snow Ice Storms - Page 15 ENSO_prim_0808

    NOAA Changed Predictions For Hurricanes Pay Attention !
    El Niño Has Ended - What That Means

    ENSO-neutral conditions are likely to last through the fall and winter. This could mean a busier Atlantic hurricane season.

    https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/2019-08-08-el-nino-enso-neutral-fall-winter-atlantic-hurricane-season


    Water Temperature Table of the Eastern Gulf of Mexico

    https://www.nodc.noaa.gov/dsdt/cwtg/egof.html


    Perfect set up for strong storms.

    El Niño has ended and transitioned to a neutral state, potentially opening the door for a more active Atlantic hurricane season.

    El Niño exists when average sea-surface temperatures in a region of the central and eastern equatorial Pacific are at least 0.5 degrees Celsius warmer than average for the previous month and last, or are expected to last, for three consecutive months.

    Weak El Niño conditions had been in place since fall 2018, but in July, below-average sea surface temperatures emerged in the eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean.

    Water temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific along with atmospheric conditions indicate that a transition to a neutral phase has occurred.

    ENSO-neutral conditions occur when neither El Niño or La Niña are present. The term ENSO refers to the El Niño/Southern Oscillation, which is a climate pattern that looks at the sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific and its interaction with the atmosphere.

    There is a 50 to 55 percent chance that neutral conditions will last through the fall and winter, according to the latest outlook from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center.

    The guidance from the computer models predict a greater probability, more than 50 percent chance, of neutral conditions remaining in place through the winter. The chance of El Niño conditions developing is around 30 percent, while there is around a 15 percent chance of La Niña occurring.

    ENSO-neutral conditions are more likely than El NIño or La Niña conditions through the winter.
    (NOAA/International Research Institute for Climate and Society)

    What Do ENSO-Neutral Conditions Mean for Hurricane Season?
    ENSO can impact tropical activity in the Atlantic and eastern Pacific due to its interactions with the atmosphere.

    In general, wind shear, the change in wind direction and/or speed with height, is stronger in the Atlantic Basin in El Niño hurricane season. Wind shear tends to reduce the number of named storms and hurricanes. In addition, there is often more sinking air in portions of the basin and sinking air is hostile to tropical cyclone development.

    Conversely, when La Niña is observed, wind shear is stronger in the eastern Pacific, limiting the number of named storms and hurricanes. In addition, wind shear and instability tend to be more favorable for tropical development in parts of the Atlantic and Caribbean.

    Interestingly, in ENSO-neutral years, the number of named storms and hurricanes is similar to La Niña years, based on data from 1995 through 2016 from NOAA.

    (MORE: Here's When the Atlantic Hurricane Season Typically Ramps Up)

    Tropical activity in the Atlantic in La Niña and ENSO-neutral years tends to be above average. The 30-year average is 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher).

    Current forecasts for the Atlantic hurricane season suggest a busier season may be more likely. NOAA's latest outlook says that "conditions are now more favorable for above-normal hurricane activity since El Niño has now ended."

    However, Colorado State University tropical scientist, Phil Klotzbach noted in the most recent outlook from the forecasters at Colorado State University that "the warmth in the central tropical Pacific should continue for the next couple of months, likely preventing upper-level winds from becoming too hurricane favorable in the tropical Atlantic and Caribbean."

    It is also important to remember that factors other than wind shear influence hurricane activity. These include water temperatures, the number of tropical waves off Africa and how much dry air comes into the Atlantic from the Sahara.

    Hurricane Dorian causes 'extreme destruction' and leaves 'bodies floating in the Bahamas' as second strongest storm in HISTORY crawls across the islands with 225mph gusts - as millions evacuate in the US amid fears for Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7418967/Hurricane-Dorian-Second-strongest-storm-HISTORY-batters-Bahamas.html

    Bringing gusts of 225mph and up to 30 inches of rainfall, Hurricane Dorian (seen in a satellite image, bottom center) wrecked 13,000 homes, tore down power lines and left Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport under five feet of water on Monday morning (pictured left, a digger is used to rescue people in the Bahamas; right: a woman asks for 'prayers' amid extreme weather conditions). A seven-year-old boy is believed to have drowned and today the Bahamian government highlighted chilling reports of bodies floating in the wreckage. The island of Grand Bahama was hit the hardest today as the storm stalled over it, almost coming to a stop. Experts have also warned of a possible storm surge that could send destructive waves crashing into the coast. It is expected to move towards the U.S. later on Monday (its possible path is seen on a map bottom left, and its proximity to the coast bottom right).

    Today the hurricane was pounding at the northern Bahamas in a slow, relentless advance, leaving wrecked homes, shredded roofs, tumbled cars and toppled power poles in its wake.

    The country's Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said the 'devastation is unprecedented'. Residents were urged to 'bunker down'. The storm was crawling westward at just 1mph today, giving no respite to the Bahamas as it continues to lash the islands with destructive winds.

    Information began emerging from the affected islands, with Bahamas Power and Light saying there is a total blackout in New Providence, the archipelago's most populous island. Most people went to shelters as the Category 5 storm approached, with tourist hotels shutting down and residents boarded up their homes. But many people were expected to be left homeless.

    Capsized boats floated in muddy brown water dotted with wooden boards, tree branches and other debris.

    What are the strongest hurricanes ever to hit land?

    Hurricane Dorian has tied the record for the most powerful storm ever to make landfall.

    Dorian's sustained winds of 185mph equalled the so-called Labor Day hurricane of 1935, which hit Florida in September that year.

    It has also matched Hurricane Gilbert in 1988 and Hurricane Wilma in 2005, both of which were also Category 5 hurricanes.

    Hurricane Allen, which struck Mexico and parts of Texas in 1980, reached sustained winds of 190mph but did not make landfall at that speed.

    In the Pacific Ocean, Hurricane Patricia reached the greatest ever recorded wind speed, with a maximum of 215mph in October 2015.

    However, it had dropped to 150mph by the time it made landfall on the west coast of Mexico on October 23.

    Similarly, Hurricane Linda reached 185mph in the Pacific in 1997 but never made landfall at all, though for a time it appeared to threaten Southern California.

    The four strongest Atlantic hurricanes by wind speed at landfall are:

    Labor Day, 1935 - 185mph

    Gilbert, 1988 - 185mph

    Wilma, 2005 - 185mph

    Dorian, 2019 - 185mph


    'These hazards will continue over Grand Bahama Island during most of the day, causing extreme destruction on the island,' the National Hurricane Center said today.

    Calling it a 'life-threatening situation', the agency warned of 'catastrophic storm surge flooding' on Grand Bahama, urging residents to stay indoors.

    'Residents on Grand Bahama Island should not leave their shelter when the eye passes over, as winds will rapidly increase on the other side of the eye,' they said.

    The NHC also warned of 'storm surge 18 to 23 feet above normal tide levels with higher destructive waves.'

    'These hazards will cause extreme destruction in the affected areas and will continue for several hours,' the agency said.

    Up to 30 inches of rain are expected and Grand Bahama International Airport was said to be under five feet of water in the early hours of Monday.

    Prime Minister Minnis broke down in tears as he addressed a news conference, calling it 'probably the most sad and worst day of my life.'

    'We're facing a hurricane... one that we've never seen in the history of the Bahamas,' he said.

    The hurricane made its first landfall on the Abaco Islands on Sunday afternoon, causing 'catastrophic conditions' were with a storm surge of 18-23 feet, and Dorian was expected to cross Grand Bahama 'with all its fury'.

    Dorian first came ashore Sunday at Elbow Cay in Abaco island at 12.40pm, then made a second landfall near Marsh Harbour at 2pm.

    In parts of Abaco 'you cannot tell the difference as to the beginning of the street versus where the ocean begins', said Prime Minister Minnis.

    PG&E said it turned the power back on for some of the 513,000 customers in 22 counties who were left in the dark around midnight Wednesday for the company’s first wave of outages due to a "widespread, severe wind event.”

    Around 44,000 customers in the northeast Sierra Foothills had the power turned back on Wednesday afternoon, KCRA reported.

    The second waves of outages include Calaveras, Tuolumne, San Joaquin, and Stanislaus counties, which are all east of San Francisco.

    CALIFORNIA WILDFIRE RISK MAY CAUSE POWER OUTAGES IN 30 COUNTIES FOR MORE THAN 600,000 CUSTOMERS

    Other counties expected to lose power in the second wave include Alameda, Alpine, Contra Costa, Mariposa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Mendocino County, KCRA reported.

    PG&E has set up about 30 community centers offering air conditioning, restrooms, bottled water, and electronic charging stations during daylight hours.

    PG&E made the decision to turn off customers’ power because forecasts of dry, hot and windy weather, which up the risk of a rapidly spreading wildfire.

    The company said the weather event is expected to last through midday Thursday.

    “The safety of our customers and the communities we serve is our most important responsibility, which is why PG&E has decided to turn the power off to customers during this widespread, severe wind event," Michael Lewis, PG&E’s senior vice president of Electric Operations, said in a statement. "We understand the effects this event will have on our customers and appreciate the public’s patience as we do what is necessary to keep our communities safe and reduce the risk of wildfire."

    The company expects the planned outage will in total affect around 800,000 customers in 34 counties.

    “We’ve also identified areas where we could safely energize sections of our electrical system that were not in high fire threat zones and reconfiguring our system in different areas so it didn’t have as large an impact as previously planned,” PG&E spokesperson Brandi Merlo said in a statement.

    California has suffered a series of deadly wildfires across the state in the last few years, including the Camp Fire, the deadliest in the state's history, which killed 85 people and nearly destroyed the town of Paradise.

    A potential third wave of shutoffs would include the company’s southernmost customers in Santa Barbara and Kern County.

    A "potentially historic" winter storm will slam the north-central USA over the next few days with up to 2 feet of snow possible in some areas.

    Snow will accumulate from eastern Washington and Montana to Colorado, the Dakotas, Minnesota and northern Wisconsin, the Weather Channel said. Record low temperatures are also possible Thursday and Friday across the western USA.

    The system  will produce severe storms and heavy rain Thursday in the southern Plains and critical-to-extreme fire weather threats from the central and southern Rockies to California, the National Weather Service said.

    Valid 12Z Thu Oct 10 2019 - 12Z Sat Oct 12 2019

    ...Widespread moderate to heavy snow from southeast Montana into portions of the central and northern Plains...

    ...Record low temperatures possible across the western and central U.S. through Friday...

    ...A coastal storm off the Eastern Seaboard could bring heavy rain and gusty winds to portions coastal southern New England...

    A vigorous upper-level trough and strong associated cold front will move from the Rockies into the central U.S. today. Widespread moderate to heavy snow is expected today from southeast Montana into portions of the central and northern Plains. By tonight into Friday morning, a more significant area of low pressure is forecast to develop along the front across the Upper Midwest, increasing the intensity of the snowfall west of the surface low across the Northern Plains. Through Saturday night, the system is expected to produce potentially historic amounts of 1 to 2 feet possible across portions of central and eastern North Dakota. Strong and gusty winds may also accompany the snow, resulting in blowing snow and difficult travel conditions at times. In the cold air mass north and west of the frontal boundary, widespread record low temperatures are possible Friday morning from the Great Basin east across the Rockies into the southern and central Plains. Farther south, heavy rain and severe thunderstorms are forecast to accompany the cold front across portions of the southern Plains today. Refer to products issued by the Storm Prediction Center for further details on the severe weather threat.

    An area of low pressure is forecast to deepen and linger off the Eastern Seaboard through tonight/Friday, moving very little as an upper-level low develops over top of the system. The system is expected to produce heavy rainfall and gusty winds across portions of southern coastal New England over the next couple of days. 2 to 5 inches of rain are possible through Friday night, with the heaviest amounts expected to fall across eastern Massachusetts and nearby islands.

    The massive size and intensity of this snowstorm is unheard of for October.

    Both Denver and Minneapolis could see their first snow of the season.

    The National Weather Service called it a "potentially historic October winter storm."

    A slew of winter storm warnings, watches and freeze warnings were in effect across parts of seven states as the storm ramped up Wednesday, AccuWeather said.

    Significant travel disruptions, tree damage and sporadic power outages will be possible where the heaviest snow occurs, the weather service in Grand Forks, North Dakota, warned.  

    Denver and Minneapolis could see their first snow of the season, the Weather Channel said.

    The storm will have two parts, the first of which is targeting the northern and central Rockies and High Plains on Wednesday into Thursday. The second part will bring snow to the eastern and central portions of the Dakotas and western Minnesota by week's end.

    "Near-blizzard to full-fledged blizzard conditions are possible across portions of central North Dakota Friday afternoon into Saturday morning," the weather service in Bismarck said. "Expect high impacts and dangerous to impossible travel conditions."

    The weather service called it a "potentially historic October winter storm."

    The Weather Channel has named the storm Winter Storm Aubrey, the network's first named storm of the season.

    Wild temperature swings will accompany the storm. In Denver, temperatures are forecast to plummet from the summery low 80s on Wednesday afternoon to the frigid upper 20s by Thursday morning.

    A number of daily record lows will be in jeopardy in such cities as Denver; Portland, Oregon; and Salt Lake City on Thursday and Friday.

    This storm comes just a little more than a week following the first blast of winter across the northern Rockies, according to WeatherBug. A storm at the end of September racked up 4 feet of snow in Browning, Montana, 19.3 inches at Great Falls, Montana, a foot in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and 9 inches in Post Falls, Idaho.

    A second morning with freezing temperatures, mostly clear skies

    Here's the latest KGW Weather forecast, covering the Portland and Vancouver metro area, as well as the Oregon Coast, Eastern Oregon and the Willamette Valley.

    Updated: 4:38 AM PDT October 10, 2019
    PORTLAND, Ore. — A Freeze Warning is up for much of the Willamette Valley and southwest Washington this morning as calm wind areas will mostly freeze through the sunrise hour.  East winds are picking up along the Columbia River, keeping breezy locations in the 40s. Those winds are likely to become increasingly widespread today under sunny skies.  Portland will again warm to near 60 degrees this afternoon.

    More of the same Friday, meaning clear skies and a freezing start in calm wind areas.  

    Clouds roll in Saturday morning with an on-going chance of light rain showers. Many areas may see only a trace of rainfall.  Clouds will likely hold much of Sunday and traces of rain will be possible. Of course, the weekend clouds will hold temps well above freezing at night.

    Blizzard warnings are issued across the Northern Plains for the weekend as 'historic' two-feet of snow blasts the Dakotas and causes more than 100 flights to be delayed in Denver as Winter Storm Aubrey closes in
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7562751/Blizzard-warning-posted-North-Dakota-amid-fall-snowstorm.html

    The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for northern North Dakota and winter storm warnings and watches elsewhere in the state and into parts of South Dakota and Minnesota through Saturday afternoon. 'It is significant, historic amounts for this time of year' in North Dakota, said NWS meteorologist Renee Wise. Snow also hit Denver and Nebraska as well, causing massive traffic delays.

    Blizzard conditions have forecasters urging residents in northern North Dakota to travel only in emergencies as strong winds from a powerful fall snowstorm whipped up accumulating snow.

    Typhoon Hagibis Slams Into Japan, After Landslides, Floods and a Quake
    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/12/world/asia/typhoon-hagibis.html

    The storm made landfall about 7 p.m. Saturday. Many rivers were already at dangerously high levels, and more than a million people have been urged to evacuate. TOKYO — Typhoon Hagibis made landfall in Japan around 7 p.m. local time on Saturday, after its outer bands had lashed the country’s eastern coast with heavy rains most of the day and residents had moved to evacuation centers.

    The storm had brought landslides, record rainfall and flooding, while an earthquake measuring 5.7 magnitude shook Chiba, east of Tokyo, in the early evening.

    As of Saturday afternoon, before the typhoon had made landfall, one death had been reported in a cyclone in Chiba.

    The Japan Meteorological Agency said Saturday afternoon that sustained winds from the typhoon had been measured at about 100 miles per hour, with gusts of up to 135 miles per hour, the third-strongest category. The storm made landfall Saturday evening in Ito, a resort town on the Izu Peninsula southwest of Tokyo.

    On Friday, the agency warned that Hagibis could rival the Kanogawa typhoon of 1958, which killed more than 1,200 people in Shizuoka Prefecture and the Tokyo region.

    Tens of thousands without power

    On Saturday afternoon, the Japan Meteorological Agency issued a rare, highest-level warning of extreme rain in seven prefectures including Saitama and Shizuoka. Residents were urged to evacuate or move to higher floors in the “nearest sturdy building” in order to protect against “imminent danger.”

    Less than an hour after the typhoon made landfall, the agency added five more prefectures  to the extreme-rain warning list. In a first for central Tokyo, two wards received torrential rainfall warnings.

    Landslides were reported in Sagamihara, a suburb outside Tokyo, as well as in Shizuoka and Gunma prefectures. Japan’s public broadcaster NHK reported that another man died after a landslide crushed his home in Tomioka City in  Gunma Prefecture.

    Are You Ready For A Catastrophically Cold Winter? Here Is What The Mainstream Media Won’t Tell You…
    Given that it's 19° outside this morning. I believe it.
    Monday, November 11, 2019

    https://beforeitsnews.com/survival/2019/11/are-you-ready-for-a-catastrophically-cold-winter-here-is-what-the-mainstream-media-wont-tell-you-2743947.html

    Experts are warning us that this will be a “freezing, frigid, and frosty” winter, and even though the official beginning of winter is still over a month away, it already feels like that in much of the country right now.  Over the next several days, it will literally feel like it is mid-January in much of the central and eastern portions of the United States.  Many areas will be hit by temperatures that are 30 degrees below normal, and heavy snow is expected in some areas of the Midwest.  Unfortunately, this bitterly cold weather is coming at a very bad time for corn farmers.  According to the latest USDA crop progress report, only 52 percent of the corn in the middle of the country has been harvested.  So about half of the corn is still sitting out there, and these extraordinarily low temperatures could potentially be absolutely devastating.  In essence, this cold front threatens to put an exclamation point on an absolutely horrific year for U.S. farmers.  According to the National Weather Service, we could possibly see “170 potential daily record cold high temperatures” over the next three days…

    “The National Weather Service is forecasting 170 potential daily record cold high temperatures Monday to Wednesday,” tweeted Weather Channel meteorologist Jonathan Erdman. “A little taste of January in November.”

    The temperature nosedive will be a three-day process as a cold front charges across the central and eastern U.S. from Sunday into Tuesday.


    We are being told that low temperatures in certain portions of Texas could plunge into the teens, and all across the Upper Midwest we could see low temperatures that are well below zero.

    Of course this is not the first wave of record cold weather to come rolling through this season.  During the month of October, a couple of major blizzards roared through the Midwest and countless new cold temperature records were established.

    And unfortunately we should expect a lot more bitter weather in the months ahead.  Both the Farmers’ Almanac and the Old Farmer’s Almanac are projecting that this upcoming winter will be unusually cold and snowy…

    Not long after the Farmers’ Almanac suggested it would be a “freezing, frigid, and frosty” season, the *other* Farmer’s Almanac has released its annual weather forecast—and it’s equally upsetting.

    While the first publication focused on the cold temperatures anticipated this winter, the Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts that excessive snowfall will be the most noteworthy part of the season.

    The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which was founded in 1792, says that the upcoming winter “will be remembered for strong storms” featuring heavy rain, sleet, and a lot of snow. The periodical actually used the word “snow-overload” to describe the conditions we can expect in the coming months.


    So why is this happening?

    It is actually quite simple.

    During a solar minimum, solar activity drops to very low levels, and that tends to mean lower temperatures on Earth.

    Earlier this year, a panel of experts gathered to discuss the current solar minimum, and they came to the conclusion that it “could last for years”…

    If you like solar minimum, good news: It could last for years. That was one of the predictions issued last week by an international panel of experts who gathered at NOAA’s annual Space Weather Workshop to forecast the next solar cycle. If the panel is correct, already-low sunspot counts will reach a nadir sometime between July 2019 and Sept 2020, followed by a slow recovery toward a new Solar Maximum in 2023-2026.

    “We expect Solar Cycle 25 will be very similar to Cycle 24: another fairly weak maximum, preceded by a long, deep minimum,” says panel co-chair Lisa Upton, a solar physicist with Space Systems Research Corp.


    But that would actually be a best case scenario.

    There are others that believe that we have now entered a “grand solar minimum” such as the one that our planet experienced several hundred years ago.  That one was known as “the Maunder Minimum”, and it resulted in a “little ice age”…

    The extreme example happened between 1645 and 1715 when the normal 11-year sunspot cycle vanished. This period, called the Maunder Minimum, was accompanied by bitterly cold winters in the American colonies. Fishing settlements in Iceland and Greenland were abandoned. Icebergs were seen near the English channel. The canals of Venice froze. It was a time of great hardship.

    Ultimately, the longer winters and shorter summers during the “Maunder Minimum” resulted in famine all over the globe, and multitudes ended up perishing…

    The Maunder Minimum is the most famous cold period of the Little Ice Age. Temperatures plummeted in Europe (Figs. 14.3–14.7), the growing season became shorter by more than a month, the number of snowy days increased from a few to 20–30, the ground froze to several feet, alpine glaciers advanced all over the world, glaciers in the Swiss Alps encroached on farms and buried villages, tree-lines in the Alps dropped, sea ports were blocked by sea ice that surrounded Iceland and Holland for about 20 miles, wine grape harvests diminished, and cereal grain harvests failed, leading to mass famines (Fagan, 2007). The Thames River and canals and rivers of the Netherlands froze over during the winter (Fig. 14.3). The population of Iceland decreased by about half. In parts of China, warm-weather crops that had been grown for centuries were abandoned. In North America, early European settlers experienced exceptionally severe winters.

    So far in 2019, there have been more than 200 days without a single sunspot on the sun.

    We do not know when solar activity will return to normal, but for now we should all prepare for a bitterly cold winter.

    Beyond that, we had better hope that we have not entered another “Maunder Minimum”, because right now we are struggling to feed everyone on the planet even in the best of years.

    Despite all of our advanced technology, we remain deeply dependent on the weather.  Even a year or two of bad harvests could potentially be absolutely catastrophic, and the mainstream media will not tell us the truth until it is way too late to do anything about it.

    Bill Langley, of the Green Mountain Inn in Stowe, Vt., shovels snow from a sidewalk on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019. In the first significant snow of the season a wintry mix swept into northern New England, with hundreds of schools closed or delayed in Vermont due to snow, and slick conditions in New Hampshire and Maine. The National Weather Service says record cold could follow the snow.

    Millions of Americans are bracing for an Arctic cold front sweeping the nation, which will bring chilling temperatures, heavy rain and snow. According to the National Weather Service, more than 67 million Americans are under some form of winter weather alert with temperatures expected to be record breaking.

    Areas in the Midwest have already felt the brunt of the cold from Detroit to Chicago leading into Milwaukee. The dangerous weather caused delays and canceled flights at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on Monday, leaving travelers looking for other ways out.

    “Our flight is canceled. It looks like there’s a lot of flights canceled, and we can’t get out now until tomorrow at some time… if we get out.”

    — Kelly Rizzo, traveler


    A plane slid off the runway upon landing at O’Hare after the city saw nearly six inches of snow fall. Additionally, at least four deaths have been recorded in connection to snow, ice, and poor driving conditions.

    Meanwhile, the arctic blast is also expected to make its way toward the northeast in the coming days, even making its way towards areas in the south. A freeze watch warning has extended all the way to Florida and some parts of Texas.

    Zero digit temperatures are predicted as the storm system moves east, with snow accumulations in New York and Vermont potentially reaching up to 12 inches. Americans will hopefully see some relief in the coming days as the forecast predicts temperatures to rise by the end of the week.

    It was -2° here last night. Lots of snow.

    A powerful storm making its way from California could cause major disruptions for millions of travelers across the country hoping to get home after the Thanksgiving weekend. A powerful storm making its way from California could cause major disruptions for millions of travelers across the country hoping to get home after the Thanksgiving weekend. The National Weather Service said travel could be impossible in some parts of the country as ice or flash flooding continues to cover swaths of the country.The storm was expected to head east throughout the weekend into the Plains on Friday, the Midwest by Saturday and Northeast on Sunday.

    “If you are in Duluth by tonight, you will likely be stuck there until at least Sunday afternoon due to heavy snow and blizzard conditions," the agency warned.

    Airlines for America, the airline trade industry's trade group, expects 31.1 million passengers to take to the skies Sunday. Multiple airlines said they were operating on Friday as usual.

    Delta Airlines said weather could disrupt travel at airports in the upper Midwest on Saturday and the northeast on Sunday and Monday.

    It offered to let customers cancel or reschedule flights. American Airlines issued similar offers in Rapid City, S.D. Sections of the state were under a blizzard warning and could see as much as two feet of snow.

    Bushfires Rage Out Of Control Across Southeast Australia
    https://www.oann.com/southeast-australia-faces-another-dangerous-day-for-bushfires/

    January 4, 2020

    By John Mair and Will Ziebell

    SYDNEY/MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Bushfires burned dangerously out of control on Australia’s east coast on Saturday, fanned by high temperatures and strong winds that had firefighters battling to save lives and property, as a change in wind conditions merged several large fire fronts.

    By late evening, Victoria had 14 fires rated at emergency or evacuate warning levels, and New South Wales had 11 rated emergency, with more than 150 others burning across the states. New fires had started, and others had broken containment lines.

    “There are a number of fires that are coming together – very strong, very large, intense fires that are creating some of these fire-generated thunderstorms,” New South Wales Rural Fire Service (RFS) Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said at an evening briefing.

    “And unfortunately we’ve still got many hours to go of these elevated and dangerous conditions.”

    The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) said conditions were deteriorating rapidly as a gusty southerly wind change pushed up the coast and smoke plumes from the fires triggered storms.

    Authorities are worried the fires could turn out to be worse than New Year’s Eve, when they burnt massive tracts of bushland and forced thousands of residents and summer holidaymakers to seek refuge on beaches.

    In Victoria, Premier Daniel Andrews said while conditions were difficult, the job of firefighters had been made easier by tens of thousands of people following advice to evacuate.

    It may be Sunday or later before damage assessments can be made. Prime Minister Scott Morrison put the national death toll from the current fire season, which began in September, at 23. Twelve of those are from this week’s fires alone.

    In updates, the NSW RFS repeatedly delivered the same blunt advice to those who had not evacuated at-risk areas: “It is too late to leave. Seek shelter as the fire approaches.”

    Residents used social media to post photos of the sky turning black and red from the smoke and glare of the fires, including in the Victorian town of Mallacoota, where around 1,000 people were evacuated by sea on Friday.

    The first of those evacuees arrived near Melbourne on Saturday morning after a 20-hour journey by boat and a second ship with about 1,000 people landed in the afternoon.


    The federal government announced an unprecedented call up of army reservists to support firefighters as well other resources including a third navy ship equipped for disaster and humanitarian relief.

    Andy Gillham, the incident controller in the Victorian town of Bairnsdale, said the area had avoided the worst of the fires on Saturday but stressed this was an exceptional fire season.

    “In a normal year, we would start to see the fire season kick off in a big way around early January and we’re already up towards a million hectares of burnt country. This is a marathon event and we expect to be busy managing these fires for at least the next eight weeks,” he said.

    Following are highlights of what is happening across Australia:

    * Temperatures topped 113 degrees in much of the Sydney metropolitan area, with Penrith recording a high of 120 according to the BOM. Canberra, the national capital, recorded a temperature of 111.2 just after 4 p.m., which the chief minister said was a record for the territory.

    *As the fires have flared, many towns have been isolated as major and minor roads are closed. Some fires are generating their own storm systems, which create the risk of lightning strikes generating new fires.

    * A late southerly wind change on Saturday dramatically lowered temperatures, but also brought wind gusts of 43-50 miles per hour that caused some major fires near the border of Victoria and New South Wales states to merge and strengthen.


    * In South Australia, two people died on Kangaroo Island, a popular holiday spot not far off the coast. South Australian Premier Steven Marshall said more than 247,000 acres have burned there, about one-quarter of the total area.

    * Six people remain unaccounted for in Victoria, Premier Andrews said on Saturday, down from 28 reported on Friday.

    * The focus on Saturday is preventing more loss of life, authorities said. National parks have been closed and people urged earlier this week to evacuate large parts of NSW’s south coast and Victoria’s north eastern regions, magnets for holidaymakers at the peak of Australia’s summer school holidays.

    * Morrison confirmed that his visit to India and Japan scheduled for mid-January had been postponed due to the fires.

    * More than 13 million acres of land has been burnt this fire season.
