A powerful tornado has ripped through the state of Mississippi leaving dozens of people hurt and hundreds of homes destroyed report Associated Press.

This comes just 24 hours after a major snow storm killed 10 people and caused huge amounts of disruption in the North east of the country.

The city of Hattiesburg sustained the most damage, and 10 people were injured in Forest County.

The town of Petal saw over 100 homes destroyed but so far there have been no reports of fatalities.

In neighboring state Alabama seven tornadoes hit one of which damaged 46 homes in Clark County.

Hospitals are currently dealing with a high volume of ‘walking wounded’ in both areas.

No severe weather is expected on Monday, although heavy rain could lead to flooding in some parts of the South.

NoneA tornado struck the Hattiesburg, Miss., area Sunday, causing major damage and injuring at least a dozen people, emergency officials said.

Jeff Rent of the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency said there were no immediate reports of deaths despite widespread visible damage.

Rent said witnesses and videos made at the scene confirmed a tornado touched down and moved through at least two counties.

In all, there were 15 reports of tornadoes Sunday night in Mississippi and Alabama, according to the Storm Prediction Center. There is no severe weather forecast for Monday anywhere in the country, although ongoing heavy rain could lead to flooding in portions of the Deep South.

The University of Southern Mississippi campus was among the areas hit by the storm, as was a main street that passes by the university.

Tornado rips through Miss. city, causes major damage

CBS/AP/ February 10, 2013, 9:32 PM

Updated 3:50 a.m. EST

HATTIESBURG, Miss. A tornado tore through Hattiesburg on Sunday as part of a wave of severe storms that downed trees, damaged buildings and injured more than a dozen people.

The twister traveled down one of Hattiesburg’s main streets and mangled homes, commercial buildings and structures on the campus of the University of Southern Mississippi. Emergency officials said at least 10 people were injured in surrounding Forrest County and three were hurt to the west in Marion County, but they weren’t aware of any deaths.

Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said it appears that a single tornado caused the damage in those two counties and Lamar County. Hundreds of homes are damaged in Forrest County, along with a couple dozen in the other two. Gov. Phil Bryant declared a state of emergency.

Flynn said the sheer scope of the damage was slowing their assessment.

“The problem is, it was so strong that there’s so much debris that there’s a lot of areas they haven’t been able to get to yet,” he said.

On the campus of the university, trees were snapped in half around the heavily damaged Alumni House where part of the roof was ripped away. Windows in a nearby building were blown out, and heavy equipment worked to clear streets nearby in a heavy rain after the worst of the weather had passed.

The university released a statement saying no one was hurt but that it was under a state of emergency, anyone away from campus should stay away until further notice.

Extreme Weather Fluctuations as the Climate Reacts to Geoengineering

Dane Wigington, Contributor
Activist Post

What’s Wrong With The Weather?

Global geoengineering/weather modification programs are completely disrupting the planets natural weather patterns from top to bottom. The entire climate system is so totally out of balance at this point that it is swinging radically from one extreme to another. These massive fluctuations are being “forced” by the global climate/weather modification programs known as “solar radiation management” (SRM) and “stratospheric aerosol geoengineering” (SAG).

Adequate Precipitation, Or Colder Temperatures? Now, More Often Than Not, You Can’t Have Both, Thanks To Geoengineering

If one takes the time to examine the first NOAA map below, (temperature forecast) even without any meteorological experience, it is easy enough to recognize that there is extreme contrast. Temperature gradients should tear more from north to south, not from west to east.

The NOAA projected temperature map below is for the period from 2/10/13 to 2/14/13. The oranges to red colors with the letter “A” indicate “above” normal temperatures. The darker the color, the further above normal the temperatures are predicted to be. In this case, the darkest shaded areas would indicate a prediction in the 15 to 20 degree above “normal” range.

Toward the west/southwest US, a range of blue coloration (with the letter B for “below” normal) reflects far below average temperatures. In the darkest shaded areas these maps predict something in the 15 to 20 degree below average range.

The second map below reflects rainfall “predictions” (more accurately considered “scheduled” weather as virtually all the “weather modeling” maps for NOAA are now done by defense industry contractors like Raytheon, the same contractors conducting the geoengineering programs). The second map is for the same period as the first map. Again, areas with the “A” indicates a “prediction” of above normal rainfall. The darker the color, the further above normal. “B” is below normal rainfall. The darker the shaded area, the dryer it is “predicted” (scheduled) to be.

So How Is Geoengineering Effecting The “Forecast” Maps And The Weather?

 

Here is the important consideration between these maps, in general, the further above average the temperatures are, the more precipitation there will be. The lower the temps, the less precipitation there will be. At first glance this could seem straightforward enough. After all, the atmosphere does hold 7% more moisture for every degree of temperature rise, but that is not the full story any longer. The atmosphere is being completely saturated with toxic, reflective, desiccating geoengineering particulates, and the jet stream increasingly appears to be consistently manipulated with ionosphere heater installations. (See HAARP manipulates jet stream)

The more the geoengineers spray to try and cool down the temperatures, the less it will rain, period. (The science is clear on this. Google “geoengineering reduces rainfall”, there are simply too many studies on this to link only one.) Add “artificial ice nucleation” to the spray mix and the precipitation appears to go down still further. “Artificial ice nucleation” is a chemical process that can produce colder weather/cloud temperatures and snow out of what should have been a rain storm at well above freezing temperatures. If the temps are already cold enough for snow, this same process can lower the temperatures even further, but at a cost, not much snow compared to historical norms.

There are, of course, exceptions to this when a very moisture-laden storm system is ice nucleated, but the “snow” from such system “conversions” is “heavy wet snow”. This recent term coined by the Weather Channel describes the concrete-like “snow” that sticks like glue to trees and causes utter decimation to the forests. Broken and tipped over trees are everywhere in the Pacific Northwest from just such an “ice nucleated” storm in late December. The massive amount of heavy metals in these snow storms, tested at the state certified lab, proves our storms are being “seeded”. This “seeding” of artificial ice nucleating agents is accomplished by spray disbursement into the clouds of a weather system by jet aircraft.

Though the geoengineering programs can and do cool very expansive regions, there is a paradox, it comes at the cost of a worsened warming of the climate overall. The more they spray, the more they have to spray to cover up the damage already done. In addition, as already covered, the “engineered weather” comes at extreme cost to the environment as a whole. It is also important to consider there are likely many as of yet unknown aspects of the global spraying agenda.

The More They Spray, The Less It Will Rain Overall

So, as previously stated: in general, when excessive geoengineering chemical spraying is done to cool the temps down, the precipitation goes down accordingly. The spraying can and does blot out the sun by the creation of very large-scale upper level haze/cloud cover. When clouds are super saturated with toxic heavy metal and/or chemical particles of a very small size, (10 nanometer particles are specified as a preferred size by geoengineers and some geoengineering patents) then there are to many “condensation nuclei” for cloud droplets to combine and fall as rain. Storm clouds can be blown apart into an expansive, mostly rainless, and often featureless upper level canopy of haze, sometimes spanning immense distances (hundreds or even thousands of miles).

Again, the blocking of sunlight and the effect of ice nucleating agents/particulates cools the air mass below the clouds but at the cost of reducing or even eliminating precipitation.

Conversely, if the spraying is reduced enough, total available condensation nuclei is reduced. This allows the cloud droplets to combine and fall as rain though the temperatures, then generally remain well above normal given the time of year and the region.

At this point, the atmosphere has been so devastated from the decades-long geoengineering programs, and so saturated with the toxic metal and chemical fallout from the constant spraying, there is virtually no completely “natural” weather.

In the case of the maps above, the “scheduled” weather would appear to be heavy spraying of incoming storm fronts as they pass across the west/southwest. The temps are thus “predicted to drop, with far below average precipitation. Once over the eastern half of the US, spraying will either be reduced or larger particulates could be used in the spraying and the moisture which was migrated across the west will come down in the east, perhaps in a deluge. Again, there are always unknown variables in the precarious realm of total weather manipulation.

What Is the Environmental Cost Of The Geoengineering?

This question can never be adequately answered, as the decimation to the planet and the entire web of life from 60 years of ever-increasing weather modification with toxic spraying can never be quantified.

We now have massive global ozone destruction in the northern and southern hemispheres, mass extinction of plant and animal species (now estimated to be as high as 10,000 times background extinction rates), total disruption of natural weather patterns, and a complete toxification of our air, water, and soils. How long can life on Earth sustain this total assault?

Though humanity has damaged the biosphere on many fronts, all available data indicates that no single cause of environmental destruction even comes close to the total decimation being inflicted by geoengineering/chemtrails.

Geoengineering must be brought into the light of day, and it’s up to each and every one of us to get this done. Educate yourself on this issue. Arm yourself with credible data. A well thought out flyer and a copy of Michael Murphy’s Why In The World Are They Spraying can do wonders to wake up those that have so far kept their “head in the sand”. Once critical mass of awareness is reached, and those who actually carry out these programs realize that they are pulling the noose around their own neck along with the rest of us, we will have a chance at stopping these lethal spraying programs.

Pacific Locked in ‘La Nada’ Limbo

Science Daily

Feb. 6, 2013 — Sea-surface height data from NASA’s Jason-1 satellite show that the equatorial Pacific Ocean is still locked in what some call a neutral, or ‘La Nada’ state. This condition follows two years of strong, cool-water La Niña events.

A new image, based on the average of 10 days of data centered on Jan. 26, 2013, shows near-normal conditions (depicted in green) across the equatorial Pacific. The image is available at: http://sealevel.jpl.nasa.gov/images/latestdata/jason/2013/20130126P.jpg .

This latest image highlights the processes that occur on time scales of more than a year, but usually less than 10 years, such as El Niño and La Niña. These processes are known as the interannual ocean signal. To show that signal, scientists refined data for this image by removing trends over the past 20 years, seasonal variations and time-averaged signals of large-scale ocean circulation.

The height of the water relates, in part, to its temperature, and thus is an indicator of the amount of heat stored in the ocean below. As the ocean warms, its level rises; as it cools, its level falls. Yellow and red areas indicate where the waters are relatively warmer and have expanded above normal sea level, while green (which dominates in this image) indicates near-normal sea level, and blue and purple areas show where the waters are relatively colder and sea level is lower than normal. Above-normal height variations along the equatorial Pacific indicate El Niño conditions, while below-normal height variations indicate La Niña conditions. The temperature of the upper ocean can have a significant influence on weather patterns and climate. For a more detailed explanation of what this type of image means, visit: http://sealevel.jpl.nasa.gov/science/elninopdo/latestdata/ .

“This past spring, after two years of La Niña, the expected El Niño was a no-show,” says Bill Patzert, climatologist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. “La Niña faded and ‘La Nada’ conditions locked in.”

Nine people killed, as freak hailstorm rains ice boulders on Indian villages

February 1, 2013INDIA – Hailstones the size of boulders have rained down on villages in southern India. At least nine people were killed when the violent weather hit several villages in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The hailstorm which lasted for almost 20 minutes, destroyed crops, houses and live stock, causing devastating financial implications for residents. It was once-in-lifetime experience for people living in seven villages in Chevella, Moinabad and Shankarpally. The hailstones started falling from the sky on Tuesday night and covered the entire villages under the snow-like blanket. Some women were seen attempting to sweep up the massive boulders using flimsy brushes more suited to lighter debris. Dr K. Sitarama, director, Meteorological Centre Hyderabad, said: ‘The hailstorm was caused by an intense thunderstorm. ‘Such occurances are highly localized and restricted to a small area.’ The storm in the south was extremely rare as the deadliest hailstorms, and perhaps the largest hailstones, in the world occur on the Deccan Plateau of northern India and in Bangladesh.

Times of India

Scientists mystified by India phenomena: Two days after a severe hailstorm lashed parts of Chevella mandal in Rangareddy district, a two-member team of meteorologists from the Indian Meteorology Department ( IMD) visited the affected areas, but were clueless as to what caused the unusual phenomena and were only able to give textbook answers. Sudhakar Rao, director of the meteorological department, said humidity incursion in the lower layers of atmosphere and colder air incursion in the upper air led to a severe thunderstorm associated with hail in parts of Chevella mandal on Wednesday. Rao, who visited the area, said that the hailstorm was confined to a small area. “While most of the ice chunks had melted away, some was still there,” he said, describing the incident as a rare phenomenon for this time of the year. But some environmentalists said the Met department should have probably answered why it occurred at Chevella and not in any other place in the state, for instance, Guntur had experienced massive hailstorm a few years back. But B V Subba Rao, a climate change expert, said that the incident clearly indicated drastic changes in local weather conditions. “By saying that high atmospheric moisture in the lower layers and cold winds in the upper air led to the hailstorm, officials are giving textbook explanations. They are unable to give a concrete reason,” said Subba Rao. He further said that typical snow flake formation was noticed at Chevella which indicates that the precipitation pattern has changed. “This calls for a very close and intensive monitoring of weather changes but the Met department in India is not equipped to study these changes,” said Rao. Weathermen had forecast rain or thunder showers for Telangana districts for January 29 but had failed to forecast the unusual hailstorm. The hailstorm hit Mudimyal, Rabulapally, Malkapur, Kummera, Gollapally, Yankapally and Kammeta villages in the mandal. It damaged crops and killed livestock. Parts of these affected areas were left in one-foot thick sheet of ice. “Hailstones pelted down on my farms for almost an hour. Almost all the trees were left shorn of leaves. Exposed heavy duty plastic pipes were shattered. Thick leaves of agave plants were shredded,” said Raj Kumar, a resident of Kummera. Officials said that hailstorm normally occurs during summer months but not in January. Last summer, there were hailstorms in Warangal, Guntur, Mahbubnagar and parts of Rangareddy, said M Narasimha Rao, assistant meteorologist, Met department. When asked if the hailstorm of such a scale as the one witnessed on Wednesday ever occurred, Rao said that there was no record and did not rule out such a possibility. However, Dr Sagar Dhara, an environmental engineer, said that he had encountered a severe hailstorm in Guntur district during the 1960s-70s. “I witnessed bad hailstorms in Delhi during the 1980′s and even in Guntur district during the 1960s and 1970s. In the 1980s I was in a car in Delhi and there was a hailstorm pelting down huge chunks of ice and I thought my vehicle glass would be shattered. These hailstorms were much similar to the one in Chevella,” said Dr Dhara. He further said that one incident by itself was not indicative of climate change.

80 killed, 150,000 displaced in Mozambique floods

A satellite image taken on January 25, 2013 and released five days later shows the swelling of the Limpopo River near the city of Chokwe.

Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:32PM GMT
Fresh floods in Mozambique have killed seven people, bringing the death toll from the widespread flooding to 80 in the African country.

Reports say the flooding and heavy rains also forced at least 17,000 more people to leave their homes in the central province of Zambezia and in the city of Nampula in the north on Wednesday.

Four of the victims were from Nampula and three others were killed in the town of Nicoadala, where nearly 160 millimeters of rain was recorded in the last 24 hours.

More than 150,000 have been displaced due to the floods that hit the country during the recent days.

The flood-affected people are being sheltered in 30 camps built by the government with the help of the United Nations.Aid agencies also called on the UN to provide 5 million US dollars in aid to help the flood-affected residents.

“If we receive the Central Emergency Fund money we will have enough for almost one week,” said Lola Castro, a representative from the World Food Programme (WFP).

“We have emptied our warehouses and are now borrowing food from around the region,” she added.

Since 2000, when a devastating flooding claimed the lives of some 800 people in Mozambique, the African country has been experiencing many floods.

Satellite Image Shows Eastern U.S. Severe Weather System

Science Daily

Jan. 30, 2013 — A powerful cold front moving from the central United States to the East Coast is wiping out spring-like temperatures and replacing them with winter-time temperatures with powerful storms in between. An image released from NASA using data from NOAA’s GOES-13 satellite provides a stunning look at the powerful system that brings a return to winter weather in its wake.

On Jan. 30 at 1825 UTC (1:25 p.m. EST), NOAA’s GOES-13 satellite captured an image of clouds associated with the strong cold front. The visible GOES-13 image shows a line of clouds that stretch from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast and contain powerful thunderstorms with the potential to be severe. The front is moving east to the Atlantic Ocean.

NOAA’s GOES-13 satellite continually provides real-time visible and infrared imagery of weather over the eastern United States. The NASA GOES Project, located at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., created the image from GOES data. The colorized image uses GOES-13 satellite visible data of clouds, and is overlaid on a U.S. map created by imagery from the Moderate Resolution Spectroradiometer instrument (MODIS), an instrument that flies aboard both the NASA Aqua and Terra satellites.

NOAA’s National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center (SPC) in Norman, Okla., warned of the risk of severe weather on Jan. 30, stretching from the upper Ohio Valley southward to the central Gulf Coast and eastward to the Mid-Atlantic and southeastern U.S. coast. According to SPC, the main threat will be damaging wind along with the possibility of tornadoes, especially across eastern Alabama into western Georgia.

Mozambique flooding disaster worsens- number of displaced expected to rise

January 29, 2013AFRICA – At least 150,000 people have been displaced in Mozambique due to intense flooding, according to the United Nations. The UN said on Tuesday that the number displaced is expected to rise as fresh rains spread flooding northward. At least 40 people have been killed so far by heavy rains and overflowing rivers in the southeastern African country, which is experiencing its worst floods in more than a decade. “People in high-risk areas are still being rescued,” Rita Almeida, a spokeswoman for Mozambique’s National Disaster Management Institute, said. “We are asking people to move out of houses that could be destroyed by rain,” Almeida said. The south of the country has been worst-hit by the flood surge, especially in the province of Gaza where 150,000 residents have been forced to flee to higher ground, Patricia Nakell, a UN spokesperson, said. The town of Chokwe, which had been badly damaged in floods 13 years ago, was once again devastated and residents sought refuge on rooftops. The UN is coordinating relief efforts with non-governmental organizations. Aid agencies and government emergency services have set up temporary camps in elevated areas to aid the flood victims. “The main needs are tents and clean water, but they basically need everything,” said Katherine Mueller, a spokeswoman for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. “There will be a huge need of sanitation, mosquito nets, shelter, kitchen sets and blankets as families begin returning home in the coming weeks.” Water levels on the Limpopo River are reportedly at higher levels than those recorded during the deadly floods in 2000. The deluge is expected to swell the Zambezi river basin, spreading the disaster to northern and central Mozambique.

Once in a century flooding gives Queensland an unexpected sequel: 4 killed

January 27, 2013AUSTRALIA – Queensland was today in the grip of another extraordinary flood crisis, with three people dead, helicopters rescuing residents from roofs, and cities and towns facing inundation. Dramatic rescues were underway in Bundaberg, where the city’s worst flood on record left dozens of people trapped on rooftops. Authorities later ordered people in flood-hit north Bundaberg to leave their homes, warning their lives were at risk. At least 1200 Bundaberg properties were already flooded this morning, and there were fears that number could reach 2000. The communities of Gympie and Maryborough were also being inundated following the torrential downpour caused by ex-tropical cyclone Oswald. There is also a major flood crisis developing in the Lockyer Valley, where 19 lives were lost in the state’s 2011 floods. Brisbane and Ipswich are bracing for flooding expected tonight, with further flood peaks expected tomorrow and Wednesday. As Oswald moves south, about 2000 people have been cut off by floodwaters in northern NSW, where heavy rain and winds of up to 140km/h are battering the region. A weather station near Mullumbimby recorded almost 540mm of rain in 24 hours. So far, three flood deaths have been confirmed – those of an 81-year-old man whose body was pulled from the water near Bundaberg, a 27-year-old man who tried to cross a flooded creek near Gympie, and a motorcyclist swept away trying to cross a bridge in the Oxley Creek south of Brisbane last night. A three-year-old boy is also in a critical condition with head injuries after a tree fell on him and his mother on Brisbane’s north-side. His 30-year-old mother is also being treated in hospital for head injuries. In Bundaberg, entire suburbs were evacuated but some people waited too long and about 30 were stranded on rooftops in atrocious conditions prevented rescuers from reaching them. Premier Campbell Newman said the situation in Bundaberg was “very serious” and six helicopters with winching capabilities were rescuing at least 30 people from rooftops. “There is an expectation today of a major flood, probably the largest the city has ever seen,” Mr. Newman said. The Burnett River, which cuts Bundaberg in two, was at 8.9m at 7am today and rising rapidly.

UN: Floods kill 36 and displace 70,000 in Mozambique

January 26, 2013AFRICA – At least 36 people have died and nearly 70,000 have been displaced because of flooding in Mozambique, the UN says. The number of people affected by the flooding could reach 100,000 as flood waters continue to rise in the coastal city of Xai-Xai, the UN added. The UN said it would appeal to its donors for additional funds to deal with the emergency. Days of torrential rains across the south-east of Africa have caused sea levels to rise to dangerous levels. The Limpopo River burst its banks. Neighboring South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana have also been hit by severe flooding. The United Nations in Mozambique said in a statement that 36 people had died so far across the country – 26 of them in the worst hit province, Gaza, in the south. Some 65,000 people in Gaza alone had been affected by the floods, with nearly 50,000 seeking refuge in six temporary shelters in the worst-hit districts of Chokwe and Guija. Overall, nearly 85,000 people have been affected by the floods and 67,995 have been temporarily displaced, the UN said. “Together with government, we are rushing in clean water, food, shelter, and humanitarian supplies to Gaza Province, and are ready to send more as needs become clearer,” Jennifer Topping, UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Mozambique, said. The UN has staff on the ground in the worst-affected areas where food distribution has begun, and is setting up water supply structures, but Ms Topping said that: “We will be appealing to our donors to make additional funds available immediately to help deal with this emergency.” But it appears that aid has not yet reached many of the displaced. An AFP reporter in Gaza saw tens of thousands of people camping out at roadsides, some forced to eat grasshoppers to survive. And officials are warning of a looming disaster in the city of Xai-Xai, with waters as high as eight meters (26 ft) expected to hit. Severe flooding in Xai-Xai would sever the main road connection between the north and south of the country, the AFP reports. Floodwaters in South Africa have claimed several lives and left hundreds stranded after the Limpopo river burst its banks on Monday. A crocodile farm in the far north of South Africa was forced to open its gates because of the flooding, letting loose some 15,000 crocodiles – only a few thousand of whom have so far been found.
