I believe that major natural disasters will be one of the dominant themes of 2024. Right now, a gigantic “Pineapple Express” storm is absolutely pummeling the state of California, and an even stronger “Pineapple Express” storm will hit the state right behind it. But authorities in California will really get bent out of shape if we say that these storms could potentially be part of a catastrophic multi-week pattern that many have suggested may or may not be developing. Meanwhile, the state of Hawaii is being rocked by hundreds and hundreds of earthquakes. In fact, we are being told that there were more than 220 earthquakes in just one 24 hour period earlier this week…
More than 220 earthquakes have rocked Hawaii in the last 24 hours; the increase in seismic activity and other signals at the Kilauea Volcano have prompted USGS scientists at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) to increase the volcano alert level there. While the volcano is not erupting yet as of press time, USGS warns that an “eruption can occur in the future with little warning.”
According to HVO scientists, seismicity began to increase just before midnight. Since 3 am local-time, 25-30 locatable earthquakes have occurred per hour at depths 1–2 miles below the surface. Earthquake clusters have migrated between the area just south of Halema’uma’u, a pit within the summit caldera crater, and the region southwest of the outer caldera boundary. The most intense activity occurred between 6 and 8 am when earthquakes were clustering just south of Halemaʻumaʻu. There have been over 180 locatable earthquakes in this region in the past 6 hours, with magnitudes ranging from a maximum of 3.4 to less than 1. Several of these earthquakes were large enough to be felt by HVO staff in the field, who also reported rockfalls on the south side of Halemaʻumaʻu.
There have been 502 earthquakes on the Big Island of Hawaii over the last 7 days; 228 of those have happened in the last 24 hours.
The Hawaiian islands were created by volcanic activity, and there has been so much instability in the region in recent years.
Now USGS scientists are telling us that “magma is moving toward the surface” and Kilauea could soon blow…
USGS scientists have raised the alert level of Kilauea volcano from “yellow” to “orange” after increased earthquake activity was detected at the summit early Wednesday morning.
This means that there is a potential threat of an eruption and scientists are closely monitoring the activity.
Officials said while the volcano is not erupting, the quakes and evidence of inflationary ground deformation signal that magma is moving toward the surface.
I don’t know why so many people consider Hawaii to be such a safe place to live.
In my latest book, I rated it number 41 out of all 50 states for survivability.
I probably could have rated it even lower.
But Hawaii is where Mark Zuckerberg has decided to build his 270 million dollar survivalist compound…
Zuckerberg has been constructing a 1,400-acre compound — featuring a 5,000-square-foot underground shelter, “blast-resistant door” and “escape hatch” — across his property, known as Ko’olau Ranch, according to an investigation by Wired. The compound will be equipped with “its own energy and food supplies.”
This is not your usual bug out spot. The cost of the project, including land purchases and extensive development, exceeds $270 million, according to Wired.
Good luck with all that.
Of course living in the state of California is not exactly a good choice either.
In my latest book, I rated it number 50 out of all 50 states for survivability.
Right now, the state is being hit by gigantic storm after gigantic storm.
For example, late last month a state of emergency was declared after an “unprecedented storm” caused horrifying flooding in the San Diego area…
A day after declaring a state of emergency due to an unprecedented storm that inundated San Diego County, the city’s mayor Todd Gloria visited the hard-hit communities in Southeastern San Diego and detailed what is being done to help.
“I’m heartbroken by the losses I saw this morning,” Gloria said. “This is very real. What we have is a large number of San Diegans that are going to be in recovery mode – not hours or days, but measured in weeks or months.”
So much damage was caused that it was actually being called a “thousand-year storm”…
San Diego chief operating officer Chris McFadden said the infrastructure impacts were significant. In San Diego alone, anywhere from $6 to $7 million in damage was done.
“This is what we’d classify as a thousand-year storm,” McFadden said. “What’s clear now is what rain patterns were is not what they are today. We need to prepare for that.”
A thousand-year storm means that a storm of a specific magnitude has a 1 in 1,000 chance or higher of occurring in a given year, according to the U.S. Geological Service.
But that wasn’t the end of it.
At this moment, an atmospheric river is bringing more flooding to the state…
A Pineapple Express storm system is thumping California with 10 inches of rain and 70mph wind gusts, leading to 22million people being placed under flood advisories.
All lanes of the 710 Freeway at Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach have been closed, and numerous streets and highways across the state have become inundated due to the pouring rains on Thursday morning.
Both Los Angeles and San Diego face flooding from the historic storm that pounded northern California a day earlier.
The National Weather Service office based in Los Angeles warned: ‘Start preparing now. Adjust plans. Grab sandbags. Mountain communities, grab extra supplies in case you are stranded.’
And right after this storm leaves, another atmospheric river which “could be much stronger than the first storm” is going to come barreling in…
A second atmospheric river, which meteorologists said could be much stronger than the first storm, was expected to barrel into California on Sunday and into Monday.
Impacts from the pair of storms include travel troubles, mudslides, power issues, coastal erosion and property damage.
But if anyone out there dares to speculate that this could be part of a catastrophic multi-week pattern known as an “ARkStorm” (atmospheric river 1,000 year (k) storm), authorities in California will get really, really mad.
So I’m not going to do that.
Let’s just watch and see what happens.
If more atmospheric rivers continue to hit the state, that would be really bad news.
The state of California normally doesn’t receive very high levels of precipitation, and so when lots of rain arrives in a short period of time it can cause tremendous flooding.
Our world is being shaken in so many ways, and I believe that we will see a lot more global instability throughout the remainder of 2024.
