    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.
