"We warned at the start of ZetaTalk, in 1995, that unpredictable weather extremes, switching about from drought to deluge, would occur and increase on a lineal basis up until the pole shift. Where this occurred steadily, it has only recently become undeniable. ZetaTalk, and only ZetaTalk, warned of these weather changes, at that early date. Our early warnings spoke to the issue of global heating from the core outward, hardly Global Warming, a surface or atmospheric issue, but caused by consternation in the core. Affected by the approach of Planet X, which was by then starting to zoom rapidly toward the inner solar system for its periodic passage, the core was churning, melting the permafrost and glaciers and riling up volcanoes. When the passage did not occur as expected in 2003 because Planet X had stalled in the inner solar system, we explained the increasing weather irregularities in the context of the global wobble that had ensued - weather wobbles where the Earth is suddenly forced under air masses, churning them. This evolved by 2005 into a looping jet stream, loops breaking away and turning like a tornado to affect the air masses underneath. Meanwhile, on Planet Earth, droughts had become more intractable and deluges positively frightening, temperature swings bringing snow in summer in the tropics and searing heat in Artic regions, with the violence of storms increasing in number and ferocity."

ZETATALK

 

From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for February 4, 2012:

 

The wobble seems to have changed, as the temperature in Europe suddenly plunged after being like an early Spring, Alaska has its coldest temps ever while the US and much of Canada is having an extremely mild winter. India went from fatal cold spell to balmy again. Has the Earth changed position vs a vs Planet X to cause this? [and from another] Bitter cold records broken in Alaska - all time coldest record nearly broken, but Murphy's Law intervenes [Jan 30] http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/01/30/bitter-cold-records-broken-in-alaska Jim River, AK closed in on the all time record coldest temperature of -80°F set in 1971, which is not only the Alaska all-time record, but the record for the entire United States. Unfortunately, it seems the battery died in the weather station just at the critical moment. While the continental USA has a mild winter and has set a number of high temperature records in the last week and pundits ponder whether they will be blaming the dreaded "global warming" for those temperatures, Alaska and Canada have been suffering through some of the coldest temperatures on record during the last week.

There has been no change in the wobble pattern, the wobble has merely become more severe. Nancy noted a Figure 8 format when the Earth wobble first became noticeable, in early 2005, after Planet X moved into the inner solar system at the end of 2003. The Figure 8 shifted along to the east a bit on the globe between 2005 and 2009, (the last time Nancy took its measure) as Planet X came closer to the Earth, encountering the magnetic N Pole with a violent push earlier in the day. But the pattern of the Figure 8 remained essentially the same. So what changed recently that the weather patterns became noticeably different in late January, 2012?

The N Pole is pushed away when it comes over the horizon, when the noon Sun is centered over the Pacific. This regularly puts Alaska under colder air, with less sunlight, and thus the historically low temps there this January, 2012 as the wobble has gotten stronger. But by the time the Sun is positioned over India, the N Pole has swung during the Figure 8 so the globe tilts, and this tilt is visible in the weather maps from Asia. The tilt has forced the globe under the hot air closer to the Equator, warming the land along a discernable tilt demarcation line.

The next loop of the Figure 8 swings the globe so that the N Pole moves in the other direction, putting the globe again at a tilt but this time in the other direction. This tilt is discernable in weather maps of Europe, again along a diagonal line. Depending upon air pressure and temperature differences, the weather on either side of this diagonal line may be suddenly warm or suddenly cold. The tilt and diagonal line lingers to affect much of the US and Canada, but the Figure 8 changes at this point to be an up and down motion, pulling the geographic N Pole south so the US is experiencing a warmer than expected winter under a stronger Sun. Then the cycle repeats, with the magnetic N Pole of Earth pushed violently away again as the Sun is positioned over the Pacific.

 

From the ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for April 6, 2013:

 

Would the Zetas be able to let us know what is causing the early break-up of the Arctic Ice, the ice seems to have taken on a swirling pattern at the same time, would this be wobble related? [and from another] http://www.vancouversun.com/news/national/Canada+Arctic+cracks+spec... The ice in Canada’s western Arctic ripped open in a massive “fracturing event” this spring that spread like a wave across 1,000 kilometres of the Beaufort Sea. Huge leads of water – some more than 500 kilometres long and as much as 70 kilometres across – opened up from Alaska to Canada’s Arctic islands as the massive ice sheet cracked as it was pushed around by strong winds and currents. It took just seven days for the fractures to progress across the entire area from west to east. [and from another] http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=80752&src=iot... A high-pressure weather system was parked over the region, producing warmer temperatures and winds that flowed in a southwesterly direction. That fueled the Beaufort Gyre, a wind-driven ocean current that flows clockwise. The gyre was the key force pulling pieces of ice west past Point Barrow, the northern nub of Alaska that protrudes into the Beaufort Sea.


The Figure 8 formed by the N Pole during the daily Earth wobble has shifted somewhat to the East, due to Planet X positioned more to the right of the Earth during its approach. This was anticipated, and well described in ZetaTalk, the Earth crowding to the left in the cup to escape the approach of Planet X, so the angle between these two planets would change slightly. This shift of the Figure 8 to the East is due to the push against the Earth’s magnetic N Pole occurring sooner each day than prior. Thus instead of occurring when the Sun is high over the Pacific, over New Zealand, it is now occurring when the Sun is high over Alaska. All the wobble points have shifted eastward accordingly.

This has brought a lingering Winter to the western US, and a changed sloshing pattern to the Arctic waters. Instead of Pacific waters being pushed through the Bering Straits into the Arctic when the polar push occurs, the wobble is swinging the Arctic to the right, and then later to the left, creating a circular motion in the waters trapped in the Arctic. Since the Earth rotates counterclockwise, the motion also takes this path. This is yet another piece of evidence that the establishment is hard pressed to explain. They are attempting to ascribe this to high pressure and wind, all of which are not new to the Arctic, but this circular early breakup of ice in the Arctic is new.

A video of snowfall on a mountain in the Gulf has gone viral after it was posted on Thursday. You bet!

According to the Times of Oman, this unusual snow fell in Jabal Shams early on Thursday morning as temperatures fell below 5°C (41°F).

A statement issued online by Oman News Agency said: “Jabal Shams in Al Hamra recorded the lowest temperature in Oman, reaching 4°C (39°F).

Heavy rain and hail has lashed UAE in recent weeks, flooding roads and even damaging property in some areas.

Some schools in Fujairah even had to close due to bad weather.

This week Algeria, Alfrica also got buried in snow. [Times of Oman]

Ice, ice baby! Arctic blast smashes 300 temperature records and leaves more than 232 million people shivering in 32 degrees or lower but it's not over yet

  • At least 300 daily mid-November cold records, including record lows and record-cold high temperatures, have been set across the US since Veterans Day and some records date back to 1911, a meteorologist said 
  • More than 232 million people were in 32 degrees or lower 7.45am ET Wednesday 
  • Social media users have been sharing incredible snaps of Lake Michigan covered in ice 
  • A 46 degree water temperature didn't stop one surfer from catching a wave at Silver Beach on Lake Michigan 
  • But a woman died in an Ohio car crash amid the snow and a Chicago man, 80, died from cardiovascular disease with the cold exposure
  • By Thursday morning, the Mid-Atlantic region to Maine could suffer record-low temperatures. Single digits to teens are expected in northern New England, teens and 20s in interior Northeast and 20s along I-95 corridor 

Images shared on social media show how stunning the Midwest looked amid the Arctic blast that has smashed 300 temperature records and left 232 million people shivering Wednesday morning.  

One snap showed Lake Michigan waves crash over a retaining wall and flooding parts of the Lakefront Trail near East 67th Street in Chicago. Others featured large icicles on branches. 

It was forecast that by Thursday morning, the Mid-Atlantic region to Maine could suffer record-low temperatures.

At least 300 daily mid-November cold records, including record lows and record-cold high temperatures, have been set across the US since Veterans Day.

A video of Chicago from above shows just how beautiful the Windy City looked dressed in white.

Aerial footage posted Monday captured the city's recognizable skyscrapers with the ground below coated in frost.

An image from Twitter drew attention to areas by the coast that were completely blanketed in inches of snow.

But that cool glimpse of Chicago came on the same day a plane landing at O'Hare International Airport slid across the runway. No one was injured.

More than 1,400 flights at O'Hare and Midway International Airport were canceled after more than 3 inches of snow fell Monday and on Wednesday 150 more flights were cancelled.

Veterans Day's record low was a chilly 13 degrees but hundreds of daily mid-November cold records were smashed as the country.

Some of the records dated back to 1911, meteorologists said. 

On Tuesday afternoon the record-low high was a brutal 17 degrees in Chicago, beating the previous record of 28 degrees from 1995, according to Weather.com

Venice devastated by second highest tide in history

VENICE, Italy (Reuters) - Venice’s mayor called the city a disaster zone on Wednesday after the second highest tide ever recorded swept through it overnight, flooding its historic basilica and leaving many squares and alleyways deep under water.

A local man from Pellestrina, one of the many islands in the Venetian lagoon, died when he was struck by lightning while using an electric water pump, the fire brigade said.

City officials said the tide peaked at 187 cm (6ft 2ins) at 10.50 p.m. (2150 GMT) on Tuesday, just short of the record 194 cm set in 1966.

Night-time footage showed a torrent of water whipped up by high winds raging through the city centre while Luca Zaia, governor of the Veneto region, described a scene of “apocalyptic devastation”.

Mayor Luigi Brugnaro said the situation was dramatic. “We ask the government to help us. The cost will be high. This is the result of climate change,” he said on Twitter.

He said he would declare a disaster zone and ask the government to call a state of emergency, which would allow funds to be freed to address the damage.

Saint Mark’s Square was submerged by more than one metre of water, while the adjacent Saint Mark’s Basilica was flooded for the sixth time in 1,200 years - but the fourth in the last 20.

A flood barrier was designed in 1984 to protect Venice from the kind of high tides that hit the city on Tuesday, but the multi-billion euro project, known as Mose, has been plagued by corruption scandals and is still not operative.

Brugnaro said the basilica had suffered “grave damage”, but no details were available on the state of its mainly Byzantine interior, famous for its rich mosaics.

Its administrator said the basilica had aged 20 years in a single day when it was flooded last year.


‘ON ITS KNEES’

Some tourists appeared to enjoy the drama, with one man filmed swimming across Saint Mark’s Square wearing only shorts on Tuesday evening.

“Venice is on its knees.. the art, the basilica, the shops and the homes, a disaster.. The city is bracing itself for the next high tide,” Zaia said on TV.

The luxury Hotel Gritti, a landmark of Venice which looks onto the Lagoon, was also flooded.

On Wednesday morning the tide level fell to 145 cm but was expected to rise back to 160 cm during the day.

Local authorities and the government’s civil protection unit will hold a news conference at 1100 GMT.

The overnight surge triggered several fires, including one at the International Gallery of Modern Art Ca’ Pesaro, with hundreds of calls to the fire brigade.

Video on social media showed deep water flowing like a river along one of Venice’s main thoroughfares. Other footage showed large waves hammering boats moored alongside the Doge’s Palace and surging over the stone sidewalks.


“A high tide of 187 cm is going to leave an indelible wound,” Brugnaro said.

Much of Italy has been pummelled by torrential rains in recent days, with widespread flooding, especially in the southern heel and toe of the country.

In Matera, this year’s European Capital of Culture, rain water cascaded through the streets and inundated the city’s famous cave-dwelling district.

Further bad weather is forecast for the coming days.

Australia bushfires: Smoke seen in New Zealand as Sydney region faces 'catastrophic' threat

November 11, 2019

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/11/10/australia/bushfires-australia-in...
'Unprecedented' bushfires rage across Australia 01:25

(CNN)Thousands of people are in the path of deadly Australian bushfires that have produced clouds of smoke seen as far away as New Zealand.

A seven-day state of emergency has been declared in New South Wales, where strong winds, high temperatures and low humidity have prompted the Rural Fire Service to issue a "catastrophic" fire warning for the greater Sydney region.

It's the worst threat level ever issued for Sydney under the current system, which was introduced in 2009. The city is home to around 4.6 million people, but the greatest fire risk lies in rural areas outside the city center. They include the greater Hunter area, Illawarra, and Shoalhaven, which are also facing "catastrophic" fire threats.
"Homes that are specifically designed and built to withstand bushfires are not done so for catastrophic conditions. Catastrophic conditions are where lives are lost, it's where people die. The risks are absolutely real," New South Wales Rural Fire Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons told CNN affiliate 9 News. CONTINUE...

Heavy snowfall hits northern Spain



The weather in northern Spain had taken a turn from warm to cold this week, with heavy snowfall reported on November 8, 2019. Yellow and orange snow alerts have been put in place, which means severe weather is possible in the following days and residents must be prepared.

Snow falls of up to 400 mm (16 inches) have been reported at resorts, including Fuentes de Invierno in Asturias. Parts of the Spanish Pyrenees and Picos de Europa are on yellow and orange alerts.

On the morning of November 10, snow fell in Serra de Tramuntana mountains at an altitude of 1 000 m (3 281 feet).

Snow also fell in more unexpected areas like Port de Pollenca. It came after Spain's state weather agency AEMET had predicted a polar front and placed parts of Mallorca and Menorca on orange alert.

Across the country, 33 provinces have been placed under weather alerts, from Lugo in the north to Malaga in the south.

Costa del Sol has a warning for 70 km/h (43 mph) winds, while the same alerts remain in place for Granada and Almeria.

The province of Interior Norte de Castellon has an orange warning in place for 100 km/h (62 mph) gusts.

In the south of Menorca, AEMET forecasted winds of 120 km/h (75 mph), along with waves of up to 6 m (20 feet) in the north of Mallorca.

Most parts of Andalucia will see cloudy skies by Monday, November 11, before temperatures are set to slightly increase on Tuesday, November 12.

More Than 100 Elephants Die During Worst Drought in Decades in Zimbabwe

By
 Strange Sounds
 -
Nov 9, 2019

At least 105 elephants have died in Zimbabwe’s wildlife reserves, most of them in Mana and the larger Hwange National Park in the past two months.

Many desperate animals are straying from Zimbabwe’s parks into nearby communities in search of food and water.


More than 100 elephants die amid drought in Zimbabwe.

Weak from hunger and thirst, the elephant struggled to reach a pool of water in this African wildlife reserve.

But the majestic mammal got stuck in the mud surrounding the sun-baked watering hole. Eventually park staff freed the trapped elephant, but it collapsed and died.

Just yards away lay the carcass of a Cape buffalo that had also been pulled from the mud, but was attacked by hungry lions.

Elephants, zebras, hippos, impalas, buffaloes and many other wildlife are stressed by lack of food and water in Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park.

Mana Pools, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its splendid setting along the Zambezi River, annually experiences hot, dry weather at this time of year. But this year it’s far worse as a result of poor rains last year. Even the river’s flow has reduced.

The drought parching southern Africa is also affecting people. An estimated 11 million people are threatened with hunger in nine countries in the region. The countries of southern Africa have experienced normal rainfall in only one of the past five growing seasons.

Each morning rangers pray for rain. It’s beginning to get really serious and may get even worse if it doesn’t rain. The last substantial rains came in April.

An early end to a “very poor rainy season” has resulted in insufficient natural vegetation to see the animals through.


Normally, this region is filled with water. Picture by AP

At just 5% of its normal size, Long Pool is one of the few remaining water sources across the park’s plains.

On a recent day, hippos were submerged in some puddles to try to keep their skin from drying out in the extreme heat while birds picked at catfish stranded in the mud.

Two others of Mana’s pools have completely dried up, while the third is just 20% to 30% of its usual size and dwindling.

In past years, Mana Pools would get up to 24 inches (600 millimeters) of rain per year. Now it’s lucky to get half of that.

There are more than 12,000 elephants roaming Mana’s flood plains. Zimbabwe has an estimated 85,000 elephants and neighboring Botswana has more than 130,000.

`Almost biblical´ flooding ravages communities across northern England

By PRESS ASSOCIATION

PUBLISHED: 12:04 GMT, 8 November 2019 | UPDATED: 20:28 GMT, 8 November 2019

Residents have been forced from their homes, shoppers sought sanctuary in a shopping centre overnight and travel routes remain majorly disrupted across the north of England as a month’s worth of rain fell in just 24 hours.

Yorkshire and the Midlands were the worst affected areas, with six severe “danger to life” warnings in place following Thursday’s torrential downpour.

Homes evacuated as month's worth of rain in a day brings travel chaos
 

Fire crews were called in to help guide people to safety, while rail and road users were warned against travelling on certain routes.

Residents on Yarborough Terrace in Doncaster were having to be rescued from their homes by boats on Friday as waist-high water filled the street.

Police cars surrounded the area as rescue teams put down sandbags in an attempt to calm the situation.

One woman, who has lived in her home on the street for more than 20 years, said the downstairs of her property had filled with water at around 7am on Friday.

“I’ve never known it to be this bad,” she told the PA news agency.

Residents in Toll Bar, near Doncaster, described how the downpour was “almost biblical”, while others made comparisons with deluges which devastated communities in the summer of 2007.

The Environment Agency (EA) reduced its number of flood warnings – meaning flooding is expected – to below the 100 mark by 11am on Friday, with forecasters predicting the worst of the rain had been and gone.

But parts of South Yorkshire remain most at-risk, with six severe warnings around the River Don predicting properties and roads face further flooding.

Toll Bar Post Office worker Kathleen Overton, 61, told the PA news agency: “It was almost biblical, I would say. You were just looking out of your window in disbelief at how much of it was coming down.

“People’s cars were getting submerged in the water, gardens were ruined, you couldn’t drive anywhere. It was carnage.”

Another resident, Roy Kerr, 71, said that without the help of young volunteers who put down sandbags and pumped out water, the situation could have been even worse.

“At times like this you get to see the strength of the community, and I have to praise the boys who were coming outside houses, and pumping the water away into rubbish bins,” he said.

“It wasn’t as bad as it was in 2007, but it easily could have been if it wasn’t for those lads.”

South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said they rescued more than 100 stranded people on Thursday night, with around 500 calls to its control room between 10pm and 4am.

Elsewhere, around 30 people sought refuge in the Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield due to gridlocked traffic outside, as the extreme weather conditions meant those turning up for the Christmas lights switch-on were left stranded.

Shopper Saskia Hazelwood, 17, from Doncaster, told PA she and her friends “instantly started panicking” when they saw there was no way of getting home.

She said: “We were provided with free refreshments throughout the night and morning but it was certainly not enough.

“At the start we thought it would be fun, a nice sleepover, something to certainly remember, but after 14 hours of being stranded in Meadowhall we just couldn’t wait to get home, get into our own beds, feel safe again, and catch up on sleep.”

Swineshaw in the Peak District saw 112mm of rainfall during Thursday – the highest total of anywhere across England – while flood-hit parts of Sheffield experienced 85mm during the same period, the Met Office said.

The average monthly rainfall total for Yorkshire for November is 89mm.

Sheffield was particularly badly hit during flooding in summer 2007, which saw millions of pounds spent on prevention schemes.

Yet it again saw dramatic scenes on Thursday, with a number of roads left impassable to traffic, cars stranded in floodwater and gridlock resulting on many routes.

There were more than 30 flood warnings in place for Nottinghamshire, though none were near Sutton-in-Ashfield where the Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited on his campaign trail on Friday.

An additional 35 homes in Mansfield were evacuated as a precaution after a mudslide in the area, while residents in around 25 homes in Worksop were also ordered to flee due to the risk of flooding.

And in Lincolnshire, the River Witham had risen so much residents said they were able to see swans swimming up to the edge of their properties.

Chelsea Foster, 23, told PA: “I didn’t realise how high the water actually was until I went out and there was a group of them (swans) right next to my wall – they were that close I could touch them.”

Rail operator Northern issued “do not travel” advice passengers, with between Hull, Leeds, Lincoln and Manchester affected.

But forecasters offered some respite.

Alex Burkill, meteorologist with the Met Office, said: “Some places have seen a month’s worth of rain in one day.

“The rain is easing and moving south but obviously the impact of that will continue to be felt.”

Environment Agency stores water to reduce flood risk in Lincoln
 

Chris Wilding, EA flood duty manager, said: “Our field teams have been operating flood defences and deploying temporary flood barriers to help protect people and property.

“We advise people to stay away from swollen rivers and not to walk or drive through flood water as just 30cm of flowing water is enough to move your car.”

Six killed in Uganda lightning strike

November 8 2019

Six people were killed and 11 others critically injured when lightning struck on Thursday in the northern Ugandan district of Pader.

A police commander, Tom Bainomugisha, told Xinhua by telephone that the group of people was gathering under a big tree when the lightning struck during a morning drizzle.

“The group had spent the night in prayers for a bereaved person when the incident happened,’’ Mr Bainomugisha said.

Lightning is common in the region, according to Mr Bainomugisha.

In September, four farmers were killed by lightning in the southwestern district of Kanungu.

The country’s weather department said last month that the ongoing rainy season was at its peak, warning that parts of the country are likely to face flooding, lightning and mudslides.
