MONUMENTAL EARTH CHANGES: THE GREAT DELUGE - Floods Wreck Major Havoc in Pakistan Affecting the Lives of Over 5 Million People!


Big swaths of land in Pakistan's Sindh province have been submerged by floods, affecting the lives of more than five million people, causing a monumental humanitarian crisis. Monsoon rains are continuing in Pakistan, in what has been described as the worst disaster to hit the southern province of Sindh. The floods have already inundated 4 million acres of land and affected 4 million people, scores of whom have fled the worst-affected areas. Thousands of livestock have already been washed away by the flooding, but people are determined to take their cattle - their only movable assets - with them, as they try to hold onto anything that can be saved.


Arguably the biggest global story that is getting the least attention here in the west are the monsoon induced floods in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. Pakistan is by far the hardest hit. Some 435 people have been killed and five million people affected by the seemingly endless rains. Though not as bad as last year’s epic flooding; the humanitarian situation in flood affected areas of Pakistan is acute. It is so bad, in fact, that President Zidari called Ban Ki Moon yesterday to ask the UN to issue an emergency humanitarian appeal for the flood affected regions.

The Pakistani province of Sindh has declared five flood-hit districts to be "calamity areas" - short of food, housing and medical supplies. Officials say that at least five million people have been affected by floods across the country, with thousands forced to vacate their homes. Thousands of rice, cotton and sugar cane crops have been destroyed. Heavy rainfall is continuing on Tuesday. The worst of the flooding has hit the interior of Sindh.The provincial government says that the districts of Nawabshah - the home of President Zardari - and the districts of Badin, Tandoallahyar, Sakrand and Ghotki have been especially badly hit. The BBC's Hafeez Chachar in Islamabad recently visited Sakrand and Ghotki and says that the situation in these areas is increasingly desperate, with displaced people searching for somewhere to camp on higher ground and shortages of food and medical supplies becoming ever more apparent. Our correspondent says that while the flooding so far has only seriously affected five out of 22 districts in Sindh, for those caught up in the flooding the situation is ominously comparable to the floods of 2010, which destroyed more than 1.5 million homes across Pakistan and cost an estimated $10bn in direct and indirect losses. "Floods triggered by heavy rains have killed 132 people and affected four to five million people," National Disaster Management Authority head Zafar Qadir said on Monday. He said that most of those killed died as a result of falling roofs, drowning and water-borne diseases. An unknown number of women and children are among the victims. "The magnitude of the calamity is worse than our expectations. We are facing difficulties with every passing time," Dr Qadir said. "A total of 690,000 houses were damaged, in which 250,000 were completely destroyed," Dr Qadir said that the floods had also killed an estimated 100,000 cattle. - BBC.
The United Nations on Sunday announced to launch humanitarian assistance for the millions of flood victims who have been affected by the moonsoon rains in Pakistan. According to the United Nations, many of the affected communities are still recovering from last year's devastating nationwide floods. The humanitarian crisis was "still growing" after exceptionally heavy monsoon rains, says a press release issued by the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs on Sunday. Torrential monsoon rains have pounded southern Pakistan, triggering serious flooding affecting more than 5 million people, among them communities still recovering from last year’s extraordinary floods. The disaster has reportedly taken the lives of 199 people, and destroyed or damaged nearly one million houses, and flooded 4.2 million acres of land, prompting the Government of Pakistan to call for support from the United Nations. The situation for those impacted by recent monsoons and subsequent floods is critical, with thousands of people in need of life-saving assistance due to the lack of food and safe drinking water, and the loss of livelihoods and homes. President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani have sought international help after weeks of monsoon rains, which killed hundreds of people and displaced more than 4 million in Sindh province. The flash floods have caused widespread damage in 21 districts and destroyed crops over 1.7 million acres of land in Sindh, where hundreds of thousands of people are still suffering from the last year's devastating floods... Sindh is by far the worst affected province with torrential rains in the hardest hit areas having led to rainfall exceeding, in a few days, what on average accumulates in an entire monsoon season. The government reports 22 out of 23 districts of Sindh, along with some parts of Balochistan, are covered in floodwater. The humanitarian crisis is growing by the day, with the latest reports indicating that around 4 million people are displaced and in need of immediate humanitarian assistance. To house the displaced families, the government has established 1400 camps to date across the flood-affected areas in Sindh. “Seeing first hand today the devastation and vast amount of floodwater in Sindh, now is a crucial time to stand in solidarity with the people of Pakistan, and build on the lessons learned from the recent 2010 floods response to support the government of Pakistan in their ongoing monsoon relief efforts,” said UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Pakistan Timo Pakkala. - Pakistan Today.

UFO & Extraterrestrial Disclosure Memes: WIKILEAKS - Document Indicates That Tajikistan Major Confirms The Existence Of ET Life?!


I am not sure how accurate this is, but the the Centro Ufologico Di Benevento Mars Group Campano (CUMBG) managed by Angelo Carannante, claims the following discovery:

After some hackers have tried to attack the website wikileaks.com, Julian Assange published the full archive on the website giving the users the responsibility of publishing particular information in which they are interested.

The cables are available at the link; http://wikileaks.org/cablegate.htm. The archive is about 60 GB and there are all kinds of documents and classifications, from unclassified to top secret. We of CUMBG logically wanted found documents about extraterrestrial life. The member of CUBMGC and CUFOM Donatello Guerrera, searching through the many documents, found one which is very, very interesting.

After you downloaded the archive, at the directory cablegate-201108300212\cable\2010\01, there is a file called 10DUSHANBE8. The subject of this file is: "MAYOR MEETS AMBASSADOR, CONFIRMS EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE." It’s fantastic news, but we of CUFOM are very prudent. Every document released by Julian Assange was always true, however uncomfortable, so why not this? Because it is too hard to accept? Because the psychological evidence would be devastating in the minds of skeptics and scientists extremists?


And that's what CUFOM is researching; the psychological impact of a possible alien life, and this discovery seems to get stuck in perfectly with the ambitious project that the Cufom intend to continue. However, in that document is a phrase that seems to be made in a very natural way from Ubaidulloev: "war is very dangerous," and "we know there is life on other planets, but we must make peace here first." In my opinion, this sentence represents a drop of water in a vast ocean that is yet to be discovered, but for now the news seems really interesting.

EXTREME & SEVERE WEATHER: 24 New Wildfires In Texas!


In a dry spell unseen since 1895, Texas added 24 new wildfires burning 1,154 acres to a disaster that has so far torched more than 1,000 homes, the state's Forest Service said Saturday.

In all, Texas has experienced 179 fires over 170,686 acres the past week, the service said. The past 10 months have been the driest in Texas since 1895, Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said. The destruction toll prompted President Barack Obama on Friday night to declare that a major disaster exists in Texas. Firefighters reported gains, however, in battling the most damaging of the disasters Saturday: containment of the 34,068-acre Bastrop County Complex fire near Austin was improved to 50% from 30%, officials said. Added Bastrop County Judge Ronnie McDonald at a Saturday press conference: "This time is trying, but we're going to make it through." Officials Saturday warned residents to stay out of affected areas until infrastructure is proven safe. "While the fire moved fast the process of recovery will not be as fast," said state Sen. Kirk Watson. Bastrop Mayor Terry Orr said affected residents may not be able to go home for about a week. McDonald also announced the reopening of state Highway 71. Authorities said 182 vouchers were issued so victims can move from shelters to hotels during the rebuilding process. In the wake of the fire, two people were found dead this week during searches of the charred subdivisions, the Texas Forest Service said. One person was identified Saturday as Vickie Keenan, 58, said Bastrop County Sheriff Terry Pickering.

The fire has destroyed an estimated 1,386 homes in Bastrop County; crews have confirmed the destruction of 622 of those homes, McDonald said. The Bastrop County Complex fire now includes the 719-acre Union Chapel wildfire, but on Saturday morning, all Union Chapel residents were allowed to return to their homes, officials said. The Union Chapel fire was 90% contained Saturday, officials said. While crews sought control over the fire's perimeter, an infrared flight over the burn area Friday night showed interior hot spots where surviving vegetation has caught fire, said Jack Horner, spokesman for the federal Southern Area Incident Management Team, one of 17 national fire teams for federal lands. "We're still fighting the fire and saving houses within the perimeter of the fire," Horner said. "The fire didn't burn all of the vegetation, and now that the winds have picked up again, the embers come loose, and the remaining vegetation catches fire and threatens other houses. "So it's not over. There are a lot of hazards out there. We have stump holes still burning, and we have crews in there trying to put the smoke out," Horner said. The biggest surface-area fire now raging in Texas is the 49,997-acre Bear Creek fire, which has been less damaging than the Bastrop County Complex fire and has destroyed 24 homes just southeast of Linden, the forest service said

EXTREME WEATHER: Tornado Warning for Auckland, New Zealand!


Tornado warnings have been issued for Auckland as a twister touched down this afternoon and more are expected in the next 24 hours.

Further tornadoes could strike in the next 24 hours, WeatherWatch warns, after a twister touched down in west Auckland this afternoon. Powerlines were down and on fire, a house was struck by lightning and at least 13 properties were damaged when the tornado ripped through Avondale and Te Atatu South at about 1pm. The Fire Service now estimates its path was about 1km wide. Most of the affected houses sustained roof damage, others had fences and trees down and windows smashed. A Fire Service incident control unit has been established at the intersection of Ash Street and Wairau Avenue, Avondale - the roads thought to have been worst affected. WeatherWatch analyst Richard Green the tornado was "relatively minor" compared to May's twister in Albany, which killed 37-year-old Benedict Dacayan. Most of the damage, too, seemed minor, he said. "Fortunately it was short lived because if it had been a longer electrical storm, who knows what chaos could have resulted." "Fortunately it was short lived because if it had been a longer electrical storm, who knows what chaos could have resulted." Thunderstorms had been forecast for the city this afternoon but not tornadoes. "The system that was being looked at just revved up a little more as it passed over Auckland, which produced the tornado. "It was basically just very warm air and cold air mixing." Mr Green said another "disturbance" was approaching New Zealand from the Tasman Sea, which meant there was a risk of further tornadoes in western areas of the North Island for the next 24 hours.

Earlier in the day the wild weather ripped boats from their moorings, damaged powerlines and caused havoc for an Auckland yacht race, while MetService warned parts of the South Island could be in for a blizzard. A massive gust of wind tore through the endurance race near the finishing line in the Rangitoto Channel at about 1.30am. Auckland coast guard duty officer Katherine Andrews said it ripped the masts off two yachts and caused another to run aground. "The wind just picked up like you wouldn't believe," she said... Power was cut for part of Waiheke Island this morning after high winds hurled a flag pole onto powerlines in Oneroa. Sparks flew and power was down for parts of the island until the pole was removed, Mr Phillips said. A family on Auckland's North Shore were woken by a loud bang after the powerful wind tore off part of their roof. Firefighters nailed the one metre piece of roofing iron back on to keep the weather out, Steve Sosich of East Coast Bays Fire Station said. MetService has issued severe weather warnings for Southland, Otago, Wairarapa and Hawke's Bay and said gale force winds could spread over much of the North Island tomorrow. Snow is expected to low levels over the deep south tomorrow, with the possibility of heavy falls above 300 metres. Winds are also expected to reach gale-force for coastal parts of Southland and Otago on Monday and Tuesday, creating potential blizzard conditions near the coastal hills. MetService advised farmers in affected areas to move vulnerable stock to sheltered locations. Forecaster Stephen Glassey said Northland and Auckland could be in for thunderstorms this afternoon and evening

GREAT DELUGE: 78 Dead, Many Missing from Floods in Thailand!


As we continue to monitor the catastrophic Earth changes in Thailand, where widespread flooding and land subsidence is leading forecasters to suggest that the Thai capital will be fully underwater by the year 2030; a total of 78 people were confirmed killed by flash floods and landslides in the northern and central regions on Friday, while almost 30 businesses were adversely affected by the floods.

The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation said the worst affected province is Phichit, where 21 people died in floods caused by rains that have pummelled the upper portion of Thailand, reports China's news agency Xinhua. The flash floods and mudslides in northern and central provinces of Thailand were caused by heavy rainstorms that have hit about 14 provinces for more than three months. The monsoon also prevails over the Andaman Sea, Thailand and the Gulf of Thailand, according to the department. The latest deaths are reported in Uttaratid, where six people were killed and another is missing after landslides on Friday morning, making the death toll in the province rise to seven. The department estimates that about 2,300 square km. of farmland have been hit by floods. Meanwhile, about 6,700 employees of 27 businesses have had serious problems this week because of the flooding in the provinces, according to Labour Ministry Permanent Secretary Somkiat Chayasriwong. The official said the ministry's relief centres in those provinces along river basins in the central region have reported on the number of workers affected by the flooding from Monday to Wednesday this week. Somkiat said the ministry has already approved house repair loans for 190 workers, worth a total of 9.5 million baht (about US$316,000). He added that the ministry had coordinated the efforts of government agencies in providing them assistance, including the distribution of essential commodities and loans for house repairs. - Bernama.
Two villagers were reported dead and at least seven were missing after four villages in the northern province of Uttaradit were hit by forest run-off and a mudslide, while the flood situation in many provinces is critical and worsening. The authorities have sent search parties seeking the missing. The Department of Mineral Resources is dispatching surveyors to conduct an updated reconnaissance of the site hit by flash flood in Nam Phai subdistrict in Nam Pat district as it was not included in the risk map prepared by the department warning of possible landslides. The department will update the information on risk spots as Nam Phai was not one of the 5,000 villages included in the warning map. In Phichit, the heavy rain for the whole week pushed the flood situation in critical while the water from forest run-off added the water level in the districts, particularly Bang Phai subdistrict in Bang Mun Nak, where the flood was two metres deep. A hospital was also hit by the flood, forcing the staff to move medical equipment to set up a temporary medical unit on the road in front of the hospital. In Phitsanulok, the 3rd Army Area Headquarters distributed the flood relief bags to flood victims in Bang Rakam district where 477 families were affected by flooding for more than one month, some areas with floodwaters three metres deep. Nineteen schools in the district closed indefinitely, but soldiers repaired a wooden bridge at Bang Rakam School to facilitate students going to school which was expected to reopen next week. Most schools in Ban Thi in Lamphun were closed until next week. Flooding in Nakhon Sawan was critical with over two metres of floodwater forcing many villagers to stay in temples. More than 3,000 monkeys at Wat Krieng Krai Klang were affected by the flood as they lacked food. In Ubon Ratchathani, both the municipality and Warin Chamrap district were hit by flooding, with 1,400 villagers evacuating to higher ground. Soldiers prepared sandbags to make makeshift dykes to hold back floodwaters. Meanwhile, Panu Yamsri, director of the Administrative Centre for Disaster Prevention and Mitigation said the nation’s floods still affected 14 provinces with 72 persons confirmed dead. Some 174,000 households have been affected and more than 3 million rai of crops were damaged. The Meteorological Department warned of heavy to very heavy rains over Thailand. The agency said that during Sept 10-12 weekend, an active monsoon trough lies across the Central, the East and Northeast of Thailand. The rather strong southwest monsoon prevails over the Andaman Sea, southern Thailand and the Gulf of Thailand. Torrential rains and isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall are likely over the country. - MCOT.

WEATHER ANOMALIES: 800 Lightning Strikes in 5 Minutes in Holland?!


A severe and extreme weather alert was issued for several regions in the Netherlands yesterday, as over 800 lightning strikes were recorded every 5 minutes.

KNMI gave a code orange at half past eight for severe thunderstorms in the provinces of Zeeland, Zuid-Holland and Noord-Brabant. Later this Utrecht, Gelderland and Flevoland in. The code orange was withdrawn for about ten hours Zeeland and South Holland and around twelve hours for Ontario. Code orange means that there is great danger due to extreme weather. The expectation is that the storm about two hours last night has left the Netherlands at all. Then the code orange at the three remaining provinces be lifted. The meteorological institute had in some parts of the provinces more than 800 lightning discharges per 5 minutes and gusts of more than 90 kilometers per hour. Especially in Zeeland and Utrecht had firefighters and police their hands full with dozens of reports of flooding and storm damage. In Utrecht, the fire department put extra people on the control panel to control the flow of calls that can not. To our knowledge have no people in the affected provinces of injuries caused by the storm. The ANWB and Twitter made Saturday night on roads in the Utrecht region reported a large number of motorists who, because of the storm took shelter in the emergency lane. Department of Public Works recommends that people do to find a parking space if the weather because they do not want to continue driving. On the roads around Amsterdam and Utrecht had the traffic load of water on the road. The trains between Utrecht and Driebergen and Utrecht and Arnhem was obstructed from 10 hours after a train on a fallen tree was saved. It is still unclear how much damage and when it is corrected.

GLOBAL VOLCANISM: Level 3 Alert for Tambora volcano in Indonesia!


Tambora volcano in Indonesia has been raised to level 3 alert (out of maximum 4) on 8th September.

On 6-7 September continuous tremor was recorded at the volcano. On 7th September there were 40 shallow volcanic earthquakes. A 3-km exclusion zone has been placed around the volcano. Tambora volcano in Indonesia has been raised to level 2 alert (out of maximum 4) on 30th August 2011 after an increase in volcanic earthquakes. Alert level 3 was issued on 8th September 2011. In April 2011 there were 37 shallow volcanic earthquakes recorded, 167 in May, 277 in June, 363 in July, and 141 from 1-29 August. Continuous tremor was recorded on 29 and 30 August. Tourists and locals are advised to avoid the summit area of Tambora volcano. - Volcano Live.

Tambora lies 340 kilometres (210 mi) north of the Java Trench system and 180–190 kilometres (110–120 mi) above the upper surface of the active north-dipping subduction zone. Sumbawa island is flanked to both the north and south by the oceanic crust. The convergence rate is 7.8 cm/year (3 in/year). Tambora is estimated to have formed around 57,000 years ago. Depositing its strata has drained off a large magma chamber inside the mountain. The Mojo islet was formed as part of this geological process in which Saleh Bay, collapsing into the caldera of the drained magma chamber, first appeared as a sea basin, about 25,000 years ago.


MONUMENTAL EARTH CHANGES: The Canary Islands Government To Relocate Entire El Hierro Population Due To Unprecedented Quakes!



Several days, I told you that Anote Tong, the president of the Pacific island nation of Kiribati is so worried about climate change wiping out his country that he's considering ideas as strange as building a floating island. Today, comes news that the government of the Canary Islands is planning to relocate the entire population of El Hierro due to an increase in seismic activity. This news, provides even more confirmation of the unprecedented escalation in severe and extreme Earth changes.

Located just off the northwest coast of mainland Africa, El Hierro, the smallest of the Canary Islands, recently recording over one thousand earthquakes in just one week, measuring between 1 and 3 on the Richter Scale and at an average depth of between 5 and 15 kilometres (km).  An obvious precursor to a imminent significant earthquake or volcanic activity.




According to El Hierro.com, “El Hierro has the largest number of volcanoes in the Canaries with over 500 open sky cones, another 300 covered by the most recent outflows, and some 70 caves and volcanic galleries. Since the Spanish occupation, there have been seven eruptions. More than 200 years have elapsed since the last eruption. The island of El Hierro emerged from the ocean after three successive volcanic eruptions and consequent accumulations, crowned by a volcano more than 2,000 metres high. During seismic tremors some 50,000 years ago, a giant piece of the island cracked off, crashed into the ocean and caused a giant tsunami that most likely rose more than 330 feet (100 m) high and probably reached as far as the American coast.  About a half a million years ago, the volcano, Taburiente, collapsed with a giant landslide. In a BBC Horizon program broadcast on 12 Oct 2000, geologists hypothesised that a during a future eruption a similar landslide could potentially generate a “megatsunami” some 2000-3000 ft (650–900 m) high in the region of the islands. The huge wave would radiate out across the Atlantic and inundate the eastern seaboard of North America including the American, Caribbean and northern coasts of South America a mere six to eight hours later."

Here is the article about the government meeting and plans for the relocation:

Pevolca The Scientific Committee, met this morning at the request of the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Security of the Canary Islands Government, decided to relocate the population of El Hierro directly, the most important conclusions from information gathered by seismic and volcanic National Geographic Institute (IGN) and the Institute of the Canary Islands volcanological (non-tip) on the earthquakes recorded on the island since last July. For this design a specific communication plan which will include, among others, technicians and scientists from this committee, coordinated by the City Council of El Hierro, the spokesperson continues to assume given the green light situation in pre-alert, of peace for the population. The pre-alert state is triggered given the time duration of this series and seismic in order to increase coordination between the institutions involved and the level of information to citizens who are beginning to view with concern a situation that qualifies the Scientific Committee "normal" given the volcanic Canary Islands The Scientific Committee comprises, in addition to the Canary Islands Government, the National Geographic Institute, the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Meteorological Agency, and the invitation of the Director Plan, on this occasion, the City Council of The Iron, the Cabildo of Tenerife and the Canary Institute of volcanological.
