Is “Frankestorm” A Sign From HaShem? You Bet It IS! So, What Is It?


How Many More Disastrous Messages America Needs
To Realize That Opposing Israel Means War with G-d?

Read Some of the “Coincidences” that Devastated America
Just When America Was Trying to Devastate Israel

America’s eastern seaboard is being battered by a ferocious weather event which even some insurance companies would refer to as “an act of G-d.”  But could the “Frankenstorm” – the very strangely combined forces of a wintery land storm with Hurricane Sandy – actually be a message from the Almighty,B”H?

For quite some time most catastrophic storms and disastrous events in the United States of America have significantly correlated – very closely – with that nation’s HaShem-defying attempts to divide the Jewish Holy Land of Israel.

Whenever America has put a big pressure on Israel to divide our Land, they have reaped enormous, record-setting consequences – often within 24 hours.  For example, Hurricane Katrina and 9/11.

Because of the aggressive anti-Israel stand of the hidden-Muslim, Kenyan-born usurper illegally squatting in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama, America experienced this year over 90 all-time records of heat, just as he constantly acted against Israel in so many overt and covert ways.  But what is most attention-grabbing is that, the greater the pressure America exerts upon Israel to submit and “cooperate” toward our national suicide, the greater the ensuing American catastrophe.  Sadly, the American population, highly demoralized as it is, does not care so much about Israel, and it is too zombied by drugs and the media to establish such a correlation.  Even most American Jews, inclined on the altar of their senseless and Torahless Liberalism, will vote again in favor of an obvious enemy of Israel, Barack Obozo!  It is very telling that Barack means Lightning in Hebrew, and as if that was not enough Rahm means ‘Thunder’ – these two (Obama and Emmanuel) were the worst storm that fell upon America.  Did you notice that neither one of them was born in America, one a Kenyan and the other a secular excretion from Israel?  I wonder if anyone in America has any brains left so as to realize that these things have a very serious Meaning from HaShamayim?

So it is in this light that Hurricane Sandy landed ashore in the American Northeast on the very 21st anniversary of the movie-made-famous ‘Perfect Storm‘.  That also record-setting mega-storm devastated the New England coastline while the then American President, George H.W. Bush, co-sponsored the wickedly-intended ‘Madrid Conference‘ which took place from Oct. 30 to Nov. 1, 1991.  But of course, that also was a mere “coincidence”; what else could it be?

It was at the Conference that Bush broke from President Reagan’s slightly more pro-Israel policies (not as much as most people like to think) in the attempt to forge an Arab-Israeli “Peace Plan” (read ‘Piece Plan’) which included “recognition” of the so-called “Palestinian” so-called “right” to possess great portions of our biblical Jewish Lands.  Oy, but while Bush was in Spain advocating the antisemitic division of Israel, the “Perfect Storm” – so named for the ferociously destructive way in which a cold nor’easter combined with Hurricane Grace – was lashing the U.S. seaboard at home causing major havoc, horror and deaths.

Tellingly, the ‘Perfect Storm’ sent 30-foot ocean waves into Bush’s own Kennebunkport home as he was maliciously calling upon Israel to give up the Jewish homes of Judea and Samaria (or as the anti-Zionists call it the ‘West Bank’ of the Jordan river) and East Jerusalem.  That Madrid ‘Land for Peace’ Conference began the Israeli-“Palestinian” “peace” process that even the untrustworthy Mitt Romney advocated for in the presidential debates – even as yet another ‘perfect storm’ was brewing off the U.S. shore!  Hello!

The original ‘Perfect Storm’ formed on Oct. 28, 1991, and dissipated on Nov. 4 – correlating almost perfectly with the dates of the ‘Madrid Conference’.  The storm was blamed for 13 deaths and over $200 million in damages, including those to Bush’s vacation home.  Did I already mention that it was “just a mere coincidence”?

In another “mere coincidence” Hurricane Katrina, the deadliest and costliest hurricane in U.S. history, hit the US on Aug. 29, 2005.  That destructive storm began on the very day President George W. Bush succeeded in his purpose and thus congratulated Israel for evacuating 10,000 Jews from Gush Katif in Gaza and called upon the Israelis and the invented-by-Arafat-and-the-media “Palestinians” to move forward toward his malevolent ‘Two-State Plan’ (read, ‘two states at the begining and no Israel at the end’).

But there are some pointers in other moments of history., so let us talk a bit about the 1938 “Long Island Express.”  This was the most powerful, deadliest and costliest hurricane in recent New England history.  That storm killed more than 600 people and resulted in property damage that in today’s dollars would approach nearly $5 billion.  Now, what was interesting about that storm?

Leading up to the 1938 event, there was a tremendous persecution of the Jewish people as a build-up to the Holocaust.   The eye of that hurricane came directly over ‘Camp Siegfried’ and ‘Adolf Hitler Street’ in Long Island.  That powerful storm occurred exactly 38 days after Camp Siegfried was the center of the largest Nazi rally outside of Germany.  My, oh my, aren’t “coincidences” the most wonderful thing to contemplate?

There is also another similar parallel — yes, yes, I know, it is also totally completely and absolutely “coincidental” — with Hurricane Isaac and the 2012 Republican National Convention.  The day Isaac formed as a tropical storm in August, the Republican platform committee voted to add a “Two-State” position pertaining to Israel for formal convention approval.  The Republicans leaned toward Ishmael and HaShem had them remember Issac, through whom the Covenant and Promise to Avraham avinu comes.

It is worthy to note that this was the second straight Republican convention postponed due to a major hurricane.  And — “coincidentally”, it’s got to be — this is the third straight Republican convention that became secondary news due to a hurricane.  Yes, right at the moments of the 2004 and 2008 conventions — and hurricanes — Republican Bush was pressuring Israel to divide our HaShem-given Land of Israel so as to pave the way for the creation of another Arab “Palestinian” state (the original one is Jordan).

In fact, 9 out of the 10 costliest insurance events in U.S. history followed dramatic calls, and pressure, by U.S. officials for Israel to make Land concessions in bids for “Peace” with its genocidal Arab neighbors.  Six of the seven costliest hurricanes in U.S. history followed such events. He points out how 3 of the 4 largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history also followed such anti-Zionist developments.  ( Hmm, 9 of 10, 6 of 7, 3 of 4 … So, they were not 10 of 10, 7 of 7 and 4 of 4 … hah, that proves that it’s all “coincidences”!!  Coincidences, coincidences, la, la, la, la, la. )

So, now ‘Hurricane Sandy’ is attacking the American Atlantic coast and threatens to become one of the worst storms in decades, if not of all time.  Because of this the hurricane has been dubbed “Frankenstorm” by some outlets because it was expected to reach the coast close to Halloween and forecast models show – like the Perfect Storm of 1991 – that the tropical cyclone could combine with a winter weather to morph into a so-called “super storm.”

Hurricane Sandy

There are reports that governors in states along the U.S. East Coast had declared preparatory emergencies, with officials urging residents to stock up on food, water and batteries, and the U.S. Navy ordered all ships in the Norfolk, Va., area, out to sea to ride out the approaching storm.

Louis Uccellini, director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Center for Environmental Prediction, declared that “The circulation of this storm as it approaches the coast could cover about the eastern 1/3 of the United States.”

In that way, the pre-Halloween hurricane has affected the presidential race, too, prompting both Mitt Romney and Vice President Joe Biden to cancel scheduled appearances in Virginia Beach — anyway, everything that they were going to say was a repetition of the same old bunch of deceiving baloney.  So with the early voting already underway in some states, the storm could even affect vote totals — if it is that the elections are going to be legit, something that I, like so many other observers of the American political panorama in the world, do not expect in the very least.

Now, how does “Frankenstorm” tie into the American stance on Israel?  Well, both American political parties have now explicitly accepted a so-called Two-State solution to peace in the Mideast, dividing Israel’s Land between Israel and a new terrorist Muslim Arab “Palestinian” state” — all that with the imperialist arrogance of not aking Israel. ( After all Democracy is just a mere brain-washing lingo to bamboozle the American population but it does not have a true hold in that subtly-enslaved country; have you noticed that only 10% of Congress is not hated by the Americas, but they get “reelected” over and over?  The American elections remind me of those of Cuba, only that the American ones have a more “fun” flavor.  I know, I lived 30 years in both nations. )

Much more than is publicly known, there has been a lot of behind-the-scenes pressure on Israel by the treasonous Obama administration, in regard to not acting upon Iran prior to the election, but the most important aspect of it is that both practically identical parties have officially endorsed the Two-State so-called “solution”.  They both want to see Israel surrendering our Land for a new Arab “Palestinian” terrorist state that would ensure the destruction of Israel; but THAT is exactly what IS prompting these catastrophic weather “Acts of G-d.”  According to Torah, the Land should not be divided, parceled out or negotiated away … period.  This is the Land the Almighty King of Heaven gave to Israel EXCLUSIVELY !!!

Many people say they want peace, sure, but it all comes down to this:  No earthly leader (legal or usurper, foreign or Jewish) has the least right to partition the Jewish Holy Land of Israel, because that was HaShem’s Gift to Avraham avinu and his descendants forever.  It does not matter if they believe it or not, that Fact stays for all time.  In the same way, natural disasters are more often than the world realizes – or admits – Messages from G-d.  Through them He is trying to get our attention all over the world. But are we paying attention and taking heed?  What will it take for us to wake up, WW3?  Well it is already almost on top of our heads, but we are still blind and deaf to the Messages from HaShem.  Will our world have to be turned upside down before we recognize what is happening in front of our noses?  Would even that be enough?

Hey, did America forget what happened to Egypt?  These are just the first ones in a series of undescribable mega-disasters of all sorts that are on the way to that wayward, sinking country.  If America continues its course, it will surely cease being a country, it shall simply cease being.  But other countries, even Israel, will not be spared of the Judgements that HaShem is starting to exert upon all humanity for the disdain that so many exhibit against Him.  Therefore, it is a good time to start thinking in making Tshuvah and get right with HaShem.

The Sumatran Earthquakes In April Were Part Of A Major Tectonic Plate Breakup


The Prophetic Scenery Is Getting Ready
For The Coming Of Moshiach
And Our Redemption

But Before That The Ride Is Going to Get Much Rougher

We Need Continual Emunah and Tshuvah
For What Is Coming Our Way

.

17  Pachad (fear), and the pachat (pit), and the pach (snare), are upon you, inhabitant of ha’aretz (the earth).  18  And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the noise of the pachad (fear) shall fall into the pachat (pit), and he that comes up out of the midst of the pachat (pit) shall be caught in the pach (snare); because the arubot (windows) from On High are opened, and the mosedei eretz (foundations of the earth) shake.  19  Ha’aretz (the Earth) is violently broken down, ha’aretz is completely split open, ha’eretz is shaken exceedingly.  20  Ha’aretz shall stagger to and fro like a shikkor (drunkard), and it shall shake like a melunah (watchman’s hut).  And the peysha (transgression) of it shall be heavy upon it.  And it shall fall, and not rise again.  21  And it shall come to pass b’Yom hahu (in that Day) that HaShem shall visit [in punishment] the Tzeva HaMarom (Host on High, Pagan deities), and the melachim ha’adamah (kings of the earth) upon ha’adamah (the earth).

Planet Earth may be 4.5 billion years old, but that doesn’t mean it can’t serve up a shattering surprise now and again.

Such was the case on April 11 when two massive earthquakes erupted beneath the Indian Ocean off the coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra, far from the usual danger zones. Now scientists say the seafloor ruptures are part of a long suspected, yet never before observed, event: the slow-motion splitting of a vast tectonic plate.

Sumatran Quake

The first of the quakes, a magnitude 8.7, was 20 times more powerful than California’s long anticipated “big one” and tore a complex network of faults deep in the ocean floor. The violence also triggered unusually large aftershocks thousands of miles away, including four off North America’s western coast.

“It was jaw-dropping,” said Thorne Lay, a professor of Earth and planetary sciences at UC Santa Cruz. “It was like nothing we’d ever seen.”

At first, Lay wondered whether the computer code he used to analyze earthquakes was wrong. Eventually, he and other scientists realized that they had documented the breakup of the Indo-Australian plate into two pieces, an epic process that began roughly 50 million years ago and will continue for tens of millions more. Lay and other scientists reported their findings online Wednesday in the journal Nature.

Most great earthquakes occur along plate borders, where one plate dives beneath the adjoining plate and sinks deep into Earth’s mantle, a process called subduction. The April 11 quakes, however, occurred in the middle of the plate and involved a number of strike-slip faults, meaning the ground on one side of the fault moves horizontally past ground on the other side.

Scientists say the 8.7 main shock broke four faults. The quake lasted 2 minutes and 40 seconds — most last just seconds — and was followed by a second main shock, of magnitude 8.2, two hours later.

Unlike the magnitude 9.1 temblor that struck in the same region on Dec. 26, 2004, and created a deadly tsunami, the April 11 quakes did not cause similar destruction. That’s because horizontally moving strike-slip faults do not induce the massive, vertical displacement of water that thrust faults do on the borders of plates.

The type of interplate faults involved in the Sumatran quakes are the result of monumental forces, some of which drove the land mass of India into Asia millions of years ago and lifted the Himalayan Mountains. As the Indo-Australian plate continues to slide northwest, the western portion of the plate, where India is, has been grinding against and underneath Asia. But the eastern portion of the plate, which contains Australia, keeps on moving without the same obstruction. That difference creates squeezing pressure in the area where the quakes occurred.

The study authors say that over time, as more quakes occur and new ruptures appear, the cracks will eventually coalesce into a single fissure.

“This is part of the messy business of breaking up a plate,” said University of Utah seismologist Keith Koper, senior author of one of the studies. “Most likely it will take thousands of similar large quakes for that to happen.”

The quakes were also notable for triggering powerful aftershocks thousands of miles away. Though major quakes have been known to trigger aftershocks at great distance, they are usually less than 5.5 in magnitude. The April earthquakes triggered 11 aftershocks that measured 5.5 or greater in the six days that followed, including a magnitude 7. Remote shocks were felt 6,000 to 12,000 miles from the main quakes.

Fred Pollitz, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, Calif., and lead author of one of the studies, said the quakes were extremely effective in transmitting seismic wave radiation around the world. Though Pollitz said the magnitude of the larger Sumatran quake is No. 10 on the list of quakes since 1900, no other temblor has triggered so many strong aftershocks so far away.

“It’s the most powerful earthquake ever in terms of capability of putting stress on other fault zones around the world,” he said.

Pollitz said the quakes were likely to teach seismologists about the physics of earthquakes, particularly those along strike-slip faults. That knowledge, he said, would certainly apply to California’s San Andreas fault, which is also a strike-slip fault.

Lay said that the Sumatran quakes were most surprising in that they were completely unanticipated by seismologists and that he did not expect the event to repeat any time soon.

What You Will Need If Israel Is Attacked — Things To Have, And Do, In Case Of War


What to Have in Times of War or a Natural Disaster

A List of Emergency Items and Recommendations

What to do in Case of a Major War

46 Practical Recommendations that Could Save your Life
in Case of a Major War or a Natural Disaster

.

Below is a list of emergency items, as well as ideas, of what to have packed in case of a quick escape in times of an emergency — whether it is a war or a natural disaster.

By now, lots of Israelis have already received their gas masks in case of a major war with Iran.  But what else will we need to prepare for?  And what does everyone need to have in order to survive as painlessly as possible such an eventuality?  What do we need to know and have into account once the moment arrives.

It is recommended that all Israeli citizens collect immediately the following items in order to prepare for an expected regional war within the next few, days, weeks or months.

Surprise Golan DrillOn the Verge of War

Have into account that these items need to be bought and packed BEFORE the hostilities begin.  Use your discretion but remember that once the war starts you might not have the time, nor the possibility, to buy and/or pack them.  Remember that in the midst of panic and confusion many things can be forgotten.  Also, once hostilities begin, stores might not be open for you to buy anything — and who knows for how long shall they be closed — not to mention that you might not be able to leave your shelter.  So, don’t leave for tomorrow what should be done today.  Don’t lament on that day for not having heeded this good recommendations today.

All items should be secured in back packs or carrying cases that can be easily transported, and they should be stored in a very accessible location ready for evacuation to a shelter. Recommended quantities and other special instructions are also posted below.

Here is the list to have packed:

  1. One Gas Mask per person.  Learn how to wear it properly ahead of time.  (See the link below).
  2. Food.  You should pack 2 cans of tuna, 2 granola bars and 1 small chocolate bar per person, per day, enough to last between two and four weeks.
  3. Water.  You should pack 1.5 liters per person, per day, enough to last between two and four weeks.
  4. One month worth of the prescription medicines which you need to use on a regular basis.
  5. First Aid Kit.  A reasonable amount of bandages, non-stick gauze, band-aids, antibiotic cream, iodine solution, cotton swabs, pain medication, anti-anxiety pills, anti-diarrhea tablets, etc.  (Consult a pharmacist for a complete list).
  6. One sweater per person for in case of cold
  7. One small blanket per person for in case of cold.
  8. One man-sized sheet of plastic for in case of rain
  9. At least one all-weather Flashlight.
  10. One battery-powered multi-band Radio, or a hand crank radio.
  11. Spare Batteries for the radio and flashlight(s).
  12. One well-protected knife.
  13. A coil of Rope approximately 30 meters (~90 feet) long.
  14. Spare socks and underwear.
  15. A few handkerchiefs.  They will become very useful not only for blowing your nose, but for tourniquets, etc.
  16. A map of your city and country
  17. Have all your main documents wrapped in plastic in the back pack.
  18. And last, but certainly not least, a small Bible, a personal Sidur and your Tephillim (of course, if you are a man).

Things to do BEFORE  a major war:

  1. As already said, have everything bought and ready to be easily picked up and go to a shelter or escape out of your usual environment.
  2. When the war is imminent, keep every night your clothing and shoes very close to you. Keep then organized in a ready way.  Of course, keep also handy your back pack with the items recommended above.
  3. Keep your wallet, teudah zehut, keys and at least one handkerchief inside their pockets.  Also, your cellphone should be left attached to the belt.  This way you shall be able to be ready to leave in a very short time.
  4. Have in your wallet all your credit cards and a certain amount of cash just for such an emergency.
  5. Have written in a paper inside your wallet the main telephone numbers of your relatives and friends.
  6. Clean and get ready your main miklat (shelter).  You might have to spend several weeks in it.  Do not add unnecessary unconformability to an already scary and difficult situation.
  7. Make a careful plan of escape with different realistic alternatives.  Make an inventory of all the shelters and possible routes of escape in your vicinity.
  8. Even if painful, be mentally and emotionally prepared by considering the various situations and events that could occur to you and your family during a major war; and imagine how you would face them — even if you remain alone.  Notice that this may save your life, or someone in your family’s.
  9. Follow attentively the news BEFORE the military conflict starts.  Don’t be caught off guard.
  10. Keep you family and friends up to-date on how the situation develops.  Many people go in denial previous to a war and pretend that nothing is about to happen, and so they do not follow the news.  This could be very costly for them.
  11. Pray to HaShem, mend any broken fences with Him, and ask Him to be your main Protector and Shield in the time when you need it most.  Pray a lot and live as He wants you to live, so you should not have to die; but even if you do, dying with Him is a Gate to an Eternal and Wonderful Life.

 These are some of the things that you should do once the military conflict starts:

  1.  Do not panic.  Do not react thoughtlessly.  Panic can kill as many people as some missiles.  The best countermeasure against panic is a genuine faith that our lives are in the Care of HaShem.  The second one is to be mentally, emotionally and spiritually prepared for any disaster.  One of the duties of every regular citizen is to keep calm and in control of himself.
  2. Be alert.  Keep an ear on your radio and the other on your environment.  One of the most scary things in a war is the sounds it produces; but all the sounds you hear can give you lots of vital information, all of which you definitely need.
  3. Be disciplined.  Follow the indications that the Army and the Home Front shall from time to time announce to the civilian population.  Do not try to be a rebellious Lone Ranger.
  4. React deliberately.  The greater the danger, the more deliberate you need to react.  This is why it is so important that you think and plan ahead of time different responses to different eventualities.
  5. Be courageous.  Overcome the natural fear that everyone feels in a war by acting according to the needs of the moment and according to your reason and not your emotions.  Remember this formula:
    Reason + Responsibility = Courage
  6. Do not be overconfident.  It is a great foolishness to show off valor, or even unnecessarily play the hero when not necessary.  At war, a display of personal valor is only for the moments when necessity truly demands it.  You will not only endanger yourself but other people too, most of all your family who shall have to divert their attention from important things on account of your foolishness.
  7. Be patient.  Whether waiting for missiles to fall during a siren alarm, or when bombing elongates too much, or for the whole war to end: do not despair.  Every battle and every war comes to an end, but not before it is due.  Desperation can only accelerate our own demise and that of those around us.
  8. Be civil.  You might have to spend quite some time in a shelter with strangers who might, or not, react like you and who might or not have your same habits.  Remember that fear — and everyone feels it at war — causes flares of anger.  This shall happen to you as much as to them.  Do not allow quarrels and little wars added to the one already going on.  Anger and arguments only block alertness and reasoning, two elements that are vital for survival in any war.
  9. Lay low.  Do not make unnecessary noise — most of all when the enemy is close. But, of course, I bet you knew that.  Do not attract unnecessarily the attention of soldiers and officials who are concentrated doing their best to protect you.
  10. Be conservative.  I don’t mean politically, although I am.  Conserve resources: water, food, medicines, bandages, etc.  You do not know how long the state of war will last.  Only use what is strictly necessary to keep alive, not to satisfy yourself — not even the children.  It’s better to feel bad than not to feel at all.
  11. Be wise.  When at war, it is an absolute must to use your reason and ignore your emotions as much as possible.  For civilians, war is about survival, not unnecessary comfortability.  It is about patriotism, not petty personal interests.  Try to understand the emotions, words and needs of other people; they might be even more afraid than you.  Understand that not everybody feels the same pain for the same loss or the same wound.  Don’t expect others to react as you would in front of the same event or situation.
  12. Be selfless.  Share what you have with others, but do not let them abuse you either.
  13. Be helpful.  Do what you can to sooth the pain of those around you who are hurting.  cooperate with the authorities in whatever way they ask you.  Calm the children around you — even if they are not yours.  Tell them soothing or interesting stories. Don’t let them see you are afraid or nervous; their sense of calm or anguish will come to a great extent from the adults around them, most of all their parents.
  14. Be careful.  Do not go out the shelter unnecessarily, even if it seems to be a period of calm.  If you unavoidably  need to, do it with much precaution, walking by the walls being careful with those that are about to collapse.  Do not go out if there are snippers!
  15. Be brave.  If you get wounded or, worse yet, one whom you love:  try not to scream as much as you can, keep calm, put a tourniquets if needed, or a bandage then go for help.  Remember, many times wounds that are very bloody and ugly are not necessarily life threatening.  Act soon but not precipitously, try to understand that sometimes help might take a little to arrive, screaming and despairing will not help at all, just the opposite.
  16. Pray.  Pray all the time, not only for your wellbeing for that of our soldiers and everybody else.  Do not be selfish so that your prayers be heard.
  17. Be trustful in HaShem.  Every adverse circumstance — as every good one too — offers us the opportunity to make positive or negative decisions.  One of them is to develop trust in the wonderful Character of our G-d.  We may not know our future for the next five seconds, but we can know — for sure — that He loves us and cares for us at all times and under all situations.  It is in that trust of his Character that we can call upon Him for his Help and Protection and be saved.  It’s His Promise, not mine.

Syria tested delivery systems for chemical weapons at the end of August, according to the German weekly Der Spiegel.  The report, which quotes various witnesses, said that the tests took place near a chemical weapons research center at al-Safir, east of Aleppo, and were carried out with the aid of Iranian officers who were flown in for the testing.

According to the report, five or six empty shells capable of delivering poison gas were fired by tanks and aircraft at the site of Diraiham in the desert, near the village of Khanasir.The report said that scientists from Iran and North Koreaare said to work in the al-Safir research center, which is Syria’s largest testing site for chemical weapons.

Earlier this month, the Washington Post reported that the Syrian government has storied its chemical weapons and materials in some twenty sites around the country.  The report cited unnamed American and Middle Eastern officials, who also said there could be additional sites of which they were unaware.

The officials said their governments believe Syria has several tons of chemical weapons and materials, including weapons-ready sarin gas, and that the most dangerous elements of the arsenal are stored in bunkers.  The officials also said that U.S. intelligence agencies are monitoring the facilities, and have plans to secure them in the event that the situation in the country spins further out of control.  They added that the country’s chemical weapons arsenal was developed for use against Israel in a war, with the help of North Korea and Russia.

China’s Yangtze River Mysteriously Turns Blood Red


.

Have You Noticed How Weird Nature Really Has Become?
Clearly HaShem Is Warning Us Of Things To Come Before Redemption

The Meaning of the Sign – independent of its “Natural Cause” –
is Evident:  “Rivers of Blood in the Near Future”

.

.

For a river known as the “Golden Watercourse,” red is a strange color to see. Yet that’s the shade turning up in the Yangtze River and officials have no idea why.

The red began appearing in the Yangtze – the longest and largest river in China and the third longest river in the world – on September 6, near the city of Chongquing, where the Yangtze connects to the Jialin River.

The Yangtze, called “golden” because of the heavy rainfall it receives year-round, runs through Chongqing, Southwest China’s largest industrial and commercial center, also known as the “mountain city” because of the hills and peaks upon which its many buildings and factories stand.

The red color stopped some residents in their tracks. They put water from the river in bottles to save it. Fishermen and other workers who rely on the river for income kept going about their business, according to the ‘Daily Mail’.

While the river’s red coloring was most pronounced near Chongqing it was also reported at several other points. Officials are reportedly investigating the cause.

Giant ‘Balloon of Magma’ Inflates Under the Santorini Volcano


.

Have you Noticed How Weird Nature has Become?
HaShem is Preparing Nature for the Day of Gog uMagog

 A new survey suggests that the chamber of molten rock beneath Santorini’s volcano expanded 10-20 million cubic metres – up to 15 times the size of London’s Olympic Stadium – between January 2011 and April 2012

.

Factory of Death

The growth of this ‘balloon’ of magma has seen the surface of the island of the very dangerous volcano Santorini rise 8-14 centimetres during this period, a team led by Oxford University scientists has found. The results come from an expedition, funded by the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council, which used satellite radar images and Global Positioning System receivers (GPS) that can detect movements of the Earth’s surface of just a few millimetres.

The findings are helping scientists to understand more about the inner workings of the volcano which had its last major explosive eruption 3,600 years ago, burying the islands of Santorini under metres of pumice. However, it still does not provide an answer to the biggest question of all:  When will Santorini erupt?’

A report of the research appears in this week’s Nature Geoscience. In January 2011, a series of small earthquakes began beneath the islands of Santorini. Most were so small they could only be detected with sensitive seismometers but it was the first sign of activity beneath the volcano to be detected for 25 years.

Following the earthquakes Michelle Parks, an Oxford University DPhil student, spotted signs of movement of the Earth’s surface on Santorini in satellite radar images. Oxford University undergraduate students then helped researchers complete a new survey of the island. Michelle Parks of Oxford University’s Department of Earth Sciences, an author of the paper, said:

“During my field visits to Santorini in 2011, it became apparent that many of the locals were aware of a change in the behaviour of their volcano. The tour guides, who visit the volcano several times a day, would update me on changes in the amount of strong smelling gas being released from the summit, or changes in the colour of the water in some of the bays around the islands. On one particular day in April 2011, two guides told me they had felt an earthquake while they were on the volcano and that the motion of the ground had actually made them jump. Locals working in restaurants on the main island of Thera became aware of the increase in earthquake activity due to the vibration and clinking of glasses in their bars.”

Dr Juliet Biggs of Bristol University, also an author of the paper, said:

“People were obviously aware that something was happening to the volcano, but it wasn’t until we saw the changes in the GPS, and the uplift on the radar images that we really knew that molten rock was being injected at such a shallow level beneath the volcano. Many volcanologists study the rocks produced by old eruptions to understand what happened in the past, so it’s exciting to use cutting-edge satellite technology to link that to what’s going on in the volcanic plumbing system right now.”

Professor David Pyle of Oxford University’s Department of Earth Sciences, an author of the paper, said:

“For me, the challenge of this project is to understand how the information on how the volcano is behaving right now can be squared with what we thought we knew about the volcano, based on the studies of both recent and ancient eruptions. There are very few volcanoes where we have such detailed information about their past history.”

The team calculate that the amount of molten rock that has arrived beneath Santorini in the past year is the equivalent of about 10-20 years growth of the volcano. But this does not mean that an eruption is about to happen: in fact the rate of earthquake activity has dropped off in the past few months.
