A weather rarity: Tropical Storm Julia forms ‘over land’ in Florida

Tropical weather systems in the Atlantic basin on Sept. 14, 2016.

While a super typhoon was wreaking havoc in East Asia, a little tropical storm named Julia formed in Florida on Tuesday night. Yes, “in” Florida.

As in, it formed over land — a very rare occurrence, meteorologically speaking.

The center of the storm was over the city of Jacksonville when it was given tropical storm status late Tuesday night — but that decision caused some controversy.

‘Persistent organization’

At 11 p.m., the National Hurricane Center made the decision to name the storm after a small area of tropical storm-force winds was consistently reported for 12 hours.

“Given this persistent organization, the system is classifiable as a tropical cyclone and advisories are being initiated on Tropical Storm Julia, the tenth named storm of the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season,” the center said in its discussion Tuesday night.

Many meteorologists went to Twitter to disagree with the findings. Some even wondered why this storm received a name while the devastating Louisiana floods in August did not meet the criteria for a named storm.

How can a tropical storm form over land, rather than over warm ocean water? While Julia’s center was slightly inland, there was plenty of bath-temperature water nearby, which fueled the thunderstorms that formed its core.

Another interesting phenomenon could also be at play: the “brown ocean” effect, in which a tropical cyclone gains enough energy from a saturated Earth to keep a warm core. It’s too early for scientists to know for sure what caused Julia to form over land, but these theories will certainly be researched as a result of this rare formation.

The forecast for Julia

Julia is forecast to move slowly to the northeast, and although the winds will remain strong along the coast, very heavy rains will be the main threat. Some areas of coastal South Carolina and Georgia could receive upwards of 10 inches of rainfall in the next couple of days.

Over the next day, the National Hurricane Center expects Julia to become a tropical depression. It will ultimately lose all its tropical characteristics and become a remnant low pressure system.

CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller contributed to this report.

Comment: “Only about 2 percent of all tropical cyclones form over land,” said meteorologist Dylan Dreyer. “In fact, it’s been 29 years since any tropical storm has formed over U.S. land anywhere — Beryl, which formed over southeastern Louisiana in 1988.”

Has the Earth TILTED? | Dual sunrise observed from Australia!


JULY 29, 2016: An Australian webcam has recorded what appears to be a dual sunrise, coincidentally at the same time as NASA’s SOFIA telescope is ‘investigating’ the skies from 50,000ft for the past several weeks in a row from the same part of the world. What are they seeing? This webcam shows dual sunrises about 10 minute apart, very rare.

URMIA LAKE IN IRAN TURNS RED BLOOD AUGUST 1, 2016


FACEBOOK
http://www.facebook.com/GabeHashOffic… Between April and July, Iran’s salty Lake Urmia changed from a bright green color to a blood red.
NASA’s Aqua satellite captured the image above and reported on the science behind the strange transformation. According to NASA, the periodic color change is caused by micro algae producing carotenoids.
Carotenoids, also called tetraterpenoids, are organic pigments that are found in the chloroplasts and chromoplasts of plants and some other photosynthetic organisms, including some bacteria and some fungi.
Carotenoids, help with photosynthesis and act as antioxidants and Halobacteriaceae, a bacteria in very salty water that releases “a red pigment called bacteriorhodopsin that absorbs light and converts it into energy for the bacteria.
The color changes have become common in the spring and early summer due to seasonal precipitation and climate patterns.

By now we should be able to acknowledge that the election is rigged and that none of the current candidates represent the deepest interests of the American people or the human race. Never the less a sea of human energy and resources are being dumped into the phony contest, all the while, critically important issues go undiscussed with no plan what so ever. The amount of vitriol, anger, and hate in the election debate this year is suffocating, leaving one to wonder what would happen if this much energy were directed toward solving our most pressing collective problems.

Nothing is more important to life on earth than the condition of our global eco-systems, and in the 2014 edition of World Wildlife Fund’s Living Planet Report, it was reported that 52% of the world’s marine life has disappeared since 1970. Staggering.

Blog Update: Time-out for dealing with Tropical Storm “Darby”, currently taking aim at Hawaii’s Big Island: Earthkeeper Call-to-Action


ep052016_prob34_f120

Aloha! Hi Everyone,

Wanted to let you know that I’ve been taking time off the last couple days to deal with Tropical Storm Darby heading for the Big Island, which is where I live on the very eastern tip of the island. Looks like we “may” be in for the brunt of the storm.

I’m calling on all Earthkeepers who wish to take action protective for the islands, to help fortify a dome of protection over the island, work on calming the winds, raising barometric pressure and moving the trajectory of the storm to take the path of least resistance past the island. Earlier Darby looked like it might south of the island, now it looks like it could slide toward the north.

NOAA’s current trajectory: http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/tc_graphics/display_probwinds.php?stormid=EP052016&latest=y#prob34

Accuweather interactive satellite: http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/hawaii/satellite-interactive

Where I live we have a forest of mostly dead Ohia trees, the last thing we need are high winds and heavy rains. Currently Civil Defense is closing all coastal beaches and parks, and warning residents tow watch for downed trees and power lines. If you don’t hear from me for a few days, it’s probably because the power went down.

With help from Earthkeepers, I expect the storm will calm down and move southward, sooo much love and gratitude for your service everyone! Will keep you posted after the storm moves past.

Much love,

Annette

 

Why is Earth’s Schumann Resonance Accelerating?


By Kathy J. Forti, author of Fractals of God

The Ancient Indian Rishis called 7.83 Hz the frequency of OM. It also happens to be Mother Earth’s natural heartbeat rhythm, known as the “Schumann Resonance.”

According to Wikipedia, “Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere.”

For many years this resonance frequency has hovered at a steady 7.83 Hz with only slight variations. In June 2014 that apparently changed. Monitors at the Russian Space Observing System showed a sudden spike in activity to around 8.5 Hz.

Since then, they have recorded days where the Schumann accelerated as fast as 16.5 Hz. (The graph is usually blue with some green, and no white.)

At first they thought their equipment was malfunctioning, but later learned the data was accurate. Everyone was asking, what’s causing this intermittent spiking activity?

Is the Earth’s frequency speeding up? Since the Schumann frequency is said to be “in tune” with the human brain’s alpha and theta states, this acceleration may be why it often feels like time has sped up and events and changes in our life are happening more rapidly.

These emerging resonances are naturally correlated to human brainwave activity. So this means, we are changing. Many years ago I was trained in EEG Neurofeedback, so I looked at what these accelerated frequencies might be telling us about human evolutionary change. A 7.83 Hz frequency is an alpha/theta state.

Relaxed, yet dreamy—sort of a neutral idling state waiting for something to happen. A 8.5 – 16.5 Hz frequency moves one out of the theta range into more of a full calmer alpha state with faster more alert beta frequencies starting to appear.

(This correlates with slowly waking up cognitively). Since the Schumann Resonance has had sudden spikes between 12 – 16.5 Hz (see pic’s white areas),  I found this even more interesting.

In Neurofeedback, 12-15 Hz is called Sensory-Motor Rhythm frequency (SMR). It is an ideal state of “awakened calm.” Our thought processes are clearer and more focused, yet we are still “in the flow” or “in the know.”

In other words, Mother Earth is shifting her vibrational frequency and perhaps so are we. This may be one of many signs that we are AWAKENING.

Scientist’s report that the Earth’s magnetic field, which can affect the Schumann Resonance, has been slowly weakening for the past 2,000 years and even more so in the last few years.

No one really knows why. I was told by a wise old sage from India that the magnetic field of Earth was put in place by the Ancient Ones to block our primordial memories of our true heritage.

This was so that souls could learn from the experience of free-will unhampered by memories of the past.

He claimed that the magnetic field changes are now loosening those memory blocks and we are raising our consciousness to greater truth. The veil is lifting. The blinders are coming off. If true, it raises even more intriguing questions.

Whatever is happening, it’s clear that this acceleration may make you feel more tired, exhausted, dizzy, depressed, and even strange as you raise your own frequencies to be more “in tune” with the New Earth.

Adaptation is not always an easy process, but keep in mind it’s all part of your own unique AWAKENING.

Covered in ash: Chinstrap penguins threatened by volcanic eruption


© Pete Bucktrout, British Antarctic Survey
Volcanic ash threatens an enormous colony of chinstrap penguins.

The hatcheries of migratory penguins can be magical places, full of fluffy chicks and doting parents. But things are less picturesque when you add volcanic ash to the mix. A volcano on the northernmost island of an archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean has been spewing ash and smoke since March, threatening one of the largest colonies of penguins in the world, according to a new study.

Zavodovski Island, one of the South Sandwich Islands, is uninhabited by humans, but it is home to more than 1 million chinstrap penguins, according to the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). BAS researchers found the volcanic eruption via satellite imagery and fishermen from nearby South Georgia were able to photograph ash blowing eastward across the island over penguin-nesting grounds.

“We donꞌt know what impact the ash will have on the penguins,” Peter Fretwell, a geographer with the BAS, said in a statement. “If it has been heavy and widespread it may have a serious effect on the population.”

The chinstrap penguin (Pygoscelis antarctica) stands about 30 inches (75 centimeters) tall and eats mostly krill (tiny crustaceans). These penguins are abundant throughout the sub-Antarctic region, and there are at least 8 million in the wild, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The penguins forage at sea from March until November, when they return to their colonies to breed. When the eruption began in March, some straggling penguins may have still been molting, shedding old feathers and growing new ones, and were unable to leave the island, said Wayne Trivelpiece, a biologist with the National Marine Fisheries Service who has studied penguins for 40 years.

There is evidence of prior volcanic activity on Zavodovski Island, according to the BAS, but the extent of that volcanism and its effect on wildlife on the remote island are unknown. Two expeditions are planned later this year to evaluate damage from the eruption, Fretwell said.

But the main effects of the eruption, Trivelpiece said, won’t be known until the penguins return to the island, where 10 to 15 percent of the world’s chinstraps nest. “If the ash covers everything, that will make a difference,” he said, “That’s not going to be good terrain to lay eggs in.”

Ultimately, like the BAS, Trivelpiece is taking a wait-and-see approach in assessing the effects of the eruption by Mount Curry on the island’s penguin population. He said the ash could be blown out to sea, or the “very adaptable” chinstraps may find alternative nesting grounds.

“We donꞌt really know,” Trivelpiece told Live Science. “We’d just be guessing.”
