California: From drought to deluge, preparing for weeks of Katrina-style flooding


From drought to deluge, preparing for weeks of Katrina-style flooding

California has spectacularly emerged from one of its driest periods on record and ended its five-year drought by enduring one of its wettest periods on record. Its reservoirs, lakes, and mountainsides are now brimming with water and snow, though scientists caution that underground aquifers are a long way from having the same bounty that is visible on the land surface. Meanwhile, due to abnormally large amounts of snow in Sierra Nevada, nearby communities are preparing for weeks of potential Katrina-style flooding.

Between October 2016 and April 2017, California saw a 175% of the long-term average of rain, courtesy of numerous atmospheric river events. For both scientists and public, this was an unexpected turn of events which led the state to end the official drought emergency in all but four of its counties. As of April 18, just 18% of California was in some form of drought and 23%, almost entirely in southern California, was abnormally dry. As recently as December 27, 2016, the Drought Monitor reported 82% of the state in some measure of drought.

With more than five months still to go, California’s northern Sierra Nevada has already achieved its wettest water year in recorded history, the National Weather Service office in Sacramento announced earlier this month. The mountains saw an incredible amount of snow this season, with a number of stations recording over 16.2 m (638 inches). As of Thursday, April 13, 2017, the Northern Sierra 8-Station Index has surpassed the mark for the wettest water year (October 1 – September 30) on record with 2.28 m (89.7 inches), the office said. The previous water year record was 2.23 m (88.5 inches) set in 1992 – 1983.

Snow totals for winter season 2016 - 17, Sierra Nevada

Sierra snowpack bigger than last 4 years combined

New NASA data show that snowpack in the Tuolumne River Basin in California’s Sierra Nevada, a major source of water for San Francisco and California’s Central Valley, is currently larger than the four previous years of snowpack combined. NASA’s Airborne Snow Observatory (ASO) measured the Tuolumne Basin snowpack on April 1, a critical annual measurement of snow for states and their inhabitants, at 1.5 cubic km (1.2 million acre-feet), JPL said.

“In such a huge snow season, the data available from ASO will provide critical guidance for water managers as we enter into the peak melt season later this spring,” Frank Gehrke, chief of the California Cooperative Snow Surveys of California’s Department of Water Resources, said.

The 2017 California snowpack is close to the largest on the record, which consists of decades’ worth of snow measurements made at ground level. ASO mapping showed that Tuolumne Basin’s snowpack is twice the volume of last year’s snowpack and 21 times larger than the snowpack of 2015, the lowest on record. The combined April 1 snow water equivalent of 2013 through 2016, years when California was in an intense drought, added up to only 92% of this year’s April 1 measurement. In much of the Central Sierra, snow lies 8 m (25 feet) deep. In some high mountain basins, it’s deeper than 24 meters (80 feet). And since April 1, it has continued to snow.

In the San Joaquin River Basin in California’s Central Valley, this year’s April 1 snow water equivalent was about 3.6 cubic km (2.9 million acre-feet). “This is a critical path to better water management for the San Joaquin River and Friant Dam, particularly in a year like this one, where annual inflow from snowmelt might be 10 times the operating capacity of our reservoir,” Jeff Payne, water resources director for Friant, said.

The 2017 snow water equivalent was 21 times greater than 2015, which was the lowest snowpack on record. Credit: NASA

Preparing for weeks of Katrina-style flooding

Such huge amounts of snow in the mountains are now posing a serious flooding threat and nearby communities are preparing for potential disasters when huge snowpack starts to melt. According to Reno Gazette-Journal, Nevada could see weeks of Katrina-style flooding when warm spring and summer sunshine melts the massive snowpack blanketing the Sierra Nevada.

That’s according to the Nevada National Guard and other emergency planners and responders who briefed Gov. Brian Sandoval on potential disaster scenarios. “Typically, Nevada experiences flash flooding,” Col. Cory Schulz told Sandoval, referencing hurricane flooding in 2005 that devastated New Orleans and southern Mississippi. “This will be saturation flooding, much like Katrina.”

The state has already endured two flood situations that triggered federal disaster declarations in February and March for western and northern parts of the state. Nearly three months later the Sierra snowpack has grown to record levels in some places and communities in the Carson and Walker river basins are at risk. The melting rate is expected to quicken as the weather warms in May and rivers could be at high levels deep into summer.

“Obviously, we are in the midst of … one of the three greatest water events in the history of Nevada,” Sandoval said. “We could get a warm rainstorm and it might get down faster than we would like.”

California water storage at 112% of the long-term average

The California Department of Water Resources, which tracks 46 major reservoirs, reported on April 18, 2017, that water storage stood at 112% of the long-term average for the entire system.

These six satellite images show key reservoirs in California near their lowest and highest points over the past three years. All images were acquired by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8. The image pairs were chosen to match seasons and to avoid cloud cover over each scene. Tan bands around the shorelines (left image in each pair) are sands and sediments that were exposed as water levels dropped and the lake bottom became exposed.

The images below show Trinity Lake, the third largest reservoir in the state (after Lake Oroville and Shasta Lake). The artificial lake in northern California connects to the Trinity River and is part of the Sacramento basin. On April 29, 2015, Trinity stood at 59% of its historical average level for that date; by April 2, 2017, it stood at 114%. As of April 19, the lake was filled to 95% of its 2.45 million acre-foot capacity (and 117% of average water levels).

Don Pedro Reservoir, California’s sixth largest, stands in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and connects to the Tuolumne River and the San Joaquin Valley Basin. It is just miles from New Melones Lake, which is visible in the downloadable large image. When Landsat 8 acquired an image on February 26, 2015, the reservoir stood at 61% of its long-term average level. By March 3, 2017, it had risen to 134% of average.

The third image pair shows Castaic Lake, which is the 24th largest reservoir in California but the largest water storage in the Los Angeles area. It stood at just 42% of average water levels on February 11, 2015; by February 1, 2017, it was back up to 98%.

Castaic Lake - 2015 vs 2017

“Reservoirs at the surface are only a partial measure of California’s water health,” cautioned Bill Patzert, a climatologist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “From space, it looks like we are out of five years of punishing drought. But the depleted aquifers, 100 million dead trees, and $1 billion in flood damage will take decades to deal with.”

“Drought or deluge, we use more water than we have, and California suffers from chronic water scarcity,” said Jay Famiglietti, a hydrologist from JPL and the University of California-Irvine who leads the applied research effort. “That’s because California grows virtually all of the produce for the United States, as well as a tremendous amount of dairy. That level of productivity simply requires more water than is available on an annual renewable basis (snowmelt, rivers, and reservoirs). The water shortfall comes from groundwater, and that groundwater has been in decline for nearly a century. This winter will provide a slight replenishment bump, but that’s it.”

At least 25 killed after massive floods hit Iran


Note: Heart-wrenching footage of some of the worst flooding in memory, sending prayers and waves of healing-love-vibrations to everyone in Iran affected by the flooding. Blessings, {~A~}

April 15, 2017: An unbelievable flood is underway in NW Iran that has swept away 50 villages, overwhelming roads dramatically sweeping cars away as if they were toys. Yet another “Atmospheric River” has apparently caused the intense flooding. Very dramatic footage coming out of Azerbaijan.

At least 25 killed after massive floods hit Iran

At least 25 people have been killed and 16 others are missing after heavy rain caused massive floods and landslides in Iran’s northwest over the past couple of days. Parts of the region saw water levels not seen in the past 40 years. The heaviest downpours were registered on Friday, April 14, 2017.

According to Esma’eel Najjar, the head of the country’s Crisis Management Organization, the affected provinces are East Azerbaijan, West Azerbaijan, Kordestan, and Zanjan Provinces.

The worst affected were Azar-Shahr and Ajab-Sheer counties of East Azerbaijan, where at least 19 people were killed and 16 remain missing. Khalil Sa’ei, the head of crisis management at the Provincial Governor’s Office, said the province had witnessed the heaviest downpours of the past several years on Friday. The Ajab-Shir and Azar-Shahr counties had borne the brunt of the disaster, amid reports that water levels in the latter region had risen to levels last seen 40 years ago, Axar reported.

PressTV said Kordestan Province was hit by both flooding and landslides.

Shahin Fat-hi, of the Iranian Red Crescent Society’s Search and Rescue Department, meanwhile, told ISNA that the operations had provided assistance to as many as 1 150 people in 33 cities and villages.

Damage reports are still coming in and search and rescue operations are underway. Military and law enforcement forces have been asked to assist.

Latest reports mention severe damage to infrastructure and at least 50 villages destroyed.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary – February 2017: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs


SOTT ‘Earth Changes’ video summary for February 2017: extreme weather events, environmental indicators of ‘planetary upheaval’ (seismic, volcanic, etc) and Near-Earth Objects in the form of meteor fireballs.

Februrary 2017 continued on as January started. Massive flooding in California due to “atmospheric rivers” dumping large amounts of rain on coastal areas and snow on the Sierra Nevada. The snow melt from this caused further flooding in Nevada. Eastern Canada also experienced record snowfall, as did Iran, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan and Japan.

Wildfires broke out in Eastern Australia and New Zealand while record rainfall inundated Western Australia. Major flooding also hit several South American nations including Chile, Peru and Colombia.

There are at least 30 active volcanoes around the world right now, including a really impressive one in Guatemala. Massive earth cracks opened in Pakistan and Italy.

These are just some of the chaotic events we present in this month’s Sott ‘Earth Changes’ video compilation.

Saturated roadways in CA swallow an *ENTIRE FIRE ENGINE* and 2 cars drop in sinkholes | “Madness” ~ MrMBB333


Ed. Note: This is seriously mess-up for California drivers. I lived thru the Northridge earthquake in 1994 and never got over feeling uneasy every time I crossed over a bridge, praying an earthquake wouldn’t hit while I driving over it. Now, in addition to all the water weight raising the potential for seismic activity, drivers have to be concerned about the roads giving way underneath them.

Here we have three vehicles being swallowed up in one day. Now, imagine all the roads which have been and are being compromised with these unprecedented heavy rains. We’re going to be seeing many of these holes open up in the coming days. So happy I’m living in Hawaii now, my heart and prayers go out to everyone in California dealing with earth changes. Blessings, {~A~}

128 dead scores missing 1.34 million evacuated and 41,000 houses destroyed as Biblical floods hit China


Photo newsinfo.inquirer.net
Heavy rain has left 128 people dead and 42 others missing in five days, figures from the Ministry of Civil Affairs showed on Tuesday.
Rain since June 30 has led to the collapse of 41,000 houses and forced the evacuation of more than 1.34 million people, mostly along the Yangtze River and its tributaries.
Nearly 600,000 people are in urgent need of basic living assistance, with 23.3 million threatened by floods.
The rain has destroyed 295,200 hectares of crops.
Floods and landslides are also affecting telecommunication and electricity facilities, halting or delaying traffic in some regions.
The ministry estimated total economic losses of 38.2 billion yuan (5.7 billion U.S. dollars).
The ministry and the National Commission for Disaster Relief started a level-four emergency response in Hunan and Guizhou on Tuesday afternoon and sent teams to help relief work.
Guizhou has been one of the worst-hit provinces, with 44 dead and 20 missing in floods and landslides.

In Hunan 11 people have died.

Hunan upgraded its emergency response to level-two, sending 30 million yuan in cash, food, clothing, tents and quilts to disaster-hit areas.
In Hubei, heavy rain has left 45 people dead and 11 missing, local civil affairs department said. Direct economic losses are estimated at 15.5 billion yuan.
Flooding has disrupted traffic on 10 highways and more than 20 trains were delayed when a boat rammed into a pillar of a railway bridge.
Days of heavy rain has raised water in about 700 km of the Yangtze River from Jianli to Nanjing above the warning levels, but there are no reports of breaches on the main embankment, said Chen Guiya, an official with the Yangtze River Water Resources Commission.
Several small rivers and fish ponds in Hunan and Hubei have overflowed, inundating farmland and forcing the evacuation of tens of thousands of people.
Heavy rain was waning in the middle and lower reaches of Yangtze River on Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing respite to the region, but a new round of torrential rain is expected in the coming days.

Floods around the world: USA, Mexico, Russia, China, France, Germany, Belgium, Ukraine, Romania


© EPA
Roads in the town of Simbach in Southern Germany have turned to rivers, with cars covered by the rising water……devastating scenes which are being observed all around the world.

The current flooding mayhem isn’t just happening in Europe – it’s also hitting countries worldwide. Here’s a compilation of the worst floodings from around the world: the US, Mexico, Russia, China, France, Germany, Belgium, Ukraine, and Romania.

Just think, the worst is probably yet to come!

Let’s start with the ‘biblical’ floods currently sweeping across western and eastern Europe. Days of downpours have caused ten deaths in Germany, two in France and Romania and one in Belgium. The River Seine in Paris is six meters higher than normal.

Germany

In Germany, 10 people have been killed, including four in Baden-Wuerttemberg in flooding that hit Sunday and Monday.

The German Insurance Association estimated that this week’s flooding has caused some $500m in damage in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg alone.

Here some terrifying videos of the flooding.

France

Thousands have been evacuated as floods continue to threaten homes and businesses across the Paris region.

Floodwaters in Paris continue to rise with the River Seine due to hit a peak of up to 6.5m (21ft) later on Friday.

The world-famous Louvre and Orsay museums have been closed so staff can move priceless artworks to safety.

Le Château de Chambord is flooded, like in the old days.

Belgium

Belgium endured a fourth day of heavy rain, with flooding reported in several areas across the country. After widespread flooding hit northern Antwerp and the west of Flanders early in the week, waters kept rising in eastern areas around Limburg and Liege.

Several neighborhoods have had to be evacuated as cellars flooded and streets were submerged in overflowing creeks and rivers.

Forecast for the next few days is really bad: Météo: le déluge attendu sur l’est du pays

Romania

Two people were killed in floods in the Romanian counties of Vrancea and Bacau.

Several hundreds of families have been evacuated. Red alert! Firefighters and police officers conduct rescue operation.

Several rural areas are cut from the outside world.

Ukraine

As a result of heavy rain in Odessa, all major highways were flooded with sometimes more than half a meter of water on the roads.

Traffic chaos in the city!

Russia

The monthly precipitation – 82mm of rain – fell within 3 hours in Krasnodar, Russia on June 3, 2016.

This resulted in high level of water in streets blocking transport in the city.

Many houses have been evacuated.

United States of America

Two more soldiers were found and confirmed deceased at Fort Hood after their military vehicle overturned.

This brings the total deceased to five soldiers.

The search continues for the remaining four missing soldiers.

Mexico

More than 500 residential houses in the Iztapalapa neighborhood of Mexico City have been flooded by heavy rains.

According to official, everything is under control.

Iztapalapa is home to nearly 2 million people and is considered as one of the most densely populated areas of Mexico.

China

The east and central provinces of China are currently experiencing apocalyptical floods. More than five thousands people have been evacuated, hundreds of thousands are suffering material damage.

26 thousands hectares of land have been flooded.

Yes it’s flooding all over the world:

SOTT Earth Changes Summary – September 2015: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs


It’s also very important at this time, to stay well grounded to the Earth Mother. Make it part of your daily routine send out feelings of love, gratitude, praise, calmness, peace, serenity and conscious evolution to the planetary collective of nature spirits, elementals, ancestral spirits and human souls.
We are the ONES Gaia has been waiting for, let’s get busy holding sacred space for Earth changes to manifest as safely as possible for all living BEings.
All my love, blessings and aloha! Annette

Comment: Please note that due to planetary/climate chaos increasing month by month, we can only show a limited selection of global events. Considering that these ‘localized’ events, multiplied many times over, are occurring simultaneously all over the planet, the scale of destruction and impact on people’s lives becomes almost unimaginable.

No matter the season or ‘normal’ climate, these days vehicles, homes and people are being washed away in deluges – the world over – on a regular basis. Forget “one month’s average rainfall falling within hours” – last month, TWO MONTHS’ average rainfall fell within a day and turned parts of southern Japan into inland seas. In the US, Utah experienced its worst ever flash-flooding, and the entire Eastern Seaboard was soaked with up to a foot of rain. This month, we also have clips of deluges in Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Norway, Thailand, Taiwan, China, Sierra Leone, and New Zealand.

Violent volcanic eruptions in Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Indonesia foreshadowed a massive 8.3 magnitude earthquake off Chile, which sent a 4.5 meter tsunami crashing into the coast and causing widespread damage. Hailstones the size of footballs fell in Naples, Italy. Brisbane, Australia, was buried in up to 4 inches (8cm) of hail, while a gigantic hole opened up on a nearby beach and swallowed a campsite. The rate of meteor fireball sightings continues to increase; in September there were spectacular sightings over Bangkok and Los Angeles.

Wildfires continue burning up much of California, which last month saw its ‘third-largest’ wildfire in history as whole towns were consumed and tens of thousands of residents were forced to flee. The other major outbreak of wildfires on the planet in September occurred in Indonesia, from where a smoky haze enveloped much of southeast Asia for the second time in three years. ‘Slash-and-burn’ farming is being blamed, but the fires occur in peatlands that release lots of methane, leaving us wondering if the primary fuel source for these fires is coming up from below.

Extreme weather also hit the Middle East, which was engulfed in an ‘unprecedented’ sandstorm that stretched from Iraq to Cyprus and south to Saudi Arabia. A tragic and incredibly symbolic event occurred in the heart of Islam’s ‘holy city’ on the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, when a powerful and unusual thunderstorm descended on Mecca and winds blew a large construction crane belonging to Bin Laden Construction onto the Grand Mosque. 111 people were killed and hundreds more injured.

These were the signs of the times in September 2015…

Floods Ravage Over 2,000 Houses In Kaduna, Nigeria


Channels Television.
Updated September 21, 2015
 

kaduna floodAt least 2,000 houses in some parts of Kaduna State, Northwest Nigeria, have been submerged by flood as a result of a heavy rainfall.

The flood was said to have been caused by an unusual heavy downpour that lasted for over 48 hours.

The rainfall which started on Saturday night till Monday morning, caused massive floods at Abubakar Kigo road new extension, Barnawa, Ungwar-Rimi, Gonin-Gora, Karatudu, Kachia, Romi among others.

More than 30, 000 people had been forced out of their homes following the incident.

Many roads had also been blocked, making it difficult to get help and supplies to affected areas.

Flooding is common in most parts of Kaduna State during the rainy season.

Channels Television’s Correspondent in Kaduna, said that poor drainage in the affected areas was the cause of the  flood.

In 2012, flood killed about seven people,  destroyed several houses and farmlands, in what officials said was the worst natural disaster ever to befall the state.

Since then, the State Emergency Management Agency had set up an early warning system to monitor the weather.

About 30 houses were affected by flood in the area as a result of heavy down pour in August.

The residents had, however, refused to comply with NEMA’s directive due to claims of fund to secure new homes.

Instead, they attributed the flood to lack of dredging of the Kaduna River and the opening of a dam by the Cameroonian authorities.

Residents have called on the State Government to dredge the river for easy flow of water during the rainy season.

As the rains continue to pour out, some of the affected residents have started moving out their properties to safer places.

Hundreds displaced and two dead after floods, landslides in Nepal; one foot of rain in 24 hours

People of Sunahaphata in Thapapur VDC-9, Kailali, move to safer areas after inundation.

Floods and landslides triggered by heavy rains displaced hundreds of families and caused damage to several road sections across the country on Thursday. Two deaths have been reported so far.

Srijana KC, 11, and Manju Mainali, 12, were swept away by the flooded Rapti stream at Hetauda-11 in Makwanpur on Thursday. The duo had tried to wade across the stream. Their bodies were found 1km downstream.

People in many villages in Kailali and Kanchanpur districts in the Far West and Banke and Bardiya districts in the Mid West moved to safer areas after incessant rains since Wednesday night inundated their settlements.

Flashfloods and inundation have been reported in Kailali, Banke and Bardiya since Thursday morning. In Banke, a downpour since Wednesday night flooded the Babai river which inundated Balapur, Gulariya and Nepalgunj. Fifty families have been displaced.

Around 500 houses in Joshipur, Bauniya and Thapapur VDCs of Kailali were hit by floods in the tributaries of the Karnali river. The local administration alerted vulnerable communities to move while security personnel were deployed to rescue the affected people.

Met officials have warned people in the Tarai especially those in the far-western region and some parts of the mid-western region against floods and landslides.

In a special bulletin on Thursday morning, the Meteorological Forecasting Division said a rain-producing system concentrated in the western Tarai and Siwalik range could bring thundershowers in Kailali, Kanchanpur, Banke and Bardiya districts.

“The active monsoon phenomenon since Wednesday night has brought rains in many places. In particular, river basins originating from the Chure and Mahabharat range are prone to flooding and landslides,” said Barun Poudel, a meteorologist.

Floods have been reported also in Myagdi and Kaski districts. Fifty houses were buried while over a dozen are at risk along the Beni-Athunge-Pakhapani road section in Myagdi. Four dozen houses were inundated in Chhorepatan, Pokhara, which received 305.4mm rain in the past 24 hours.
Dhangadhi, Nepalgunj, Bhairahawa and Lumle recorded rains above 100 millimetres until Thursday evening.

Shasta County, CA Supervisors 7/17/15 Hearing: Geoengineering Investigation Demanded By Numerous Experts ~ Dane Wigington


YES!! Shasta County Supervisors demand an investigation after expert scientific testimony from Dane Wiggington, airline pilots, doctors, biologists, attorneys and others that chemtrails threaten the entire web of life on the planet. This hearing topples the first domino for more hearings and investigations. The domino’s are falling everywhere lately…interesting times indeed 🙂

On July 15th, 2014, citizens from Northern California rallied to create the largest attendance ever at the Shasta County Supervisors chambers (400+, chairman Les Baugh confirmed this attendance record at the start of the meeting). The primary purpose of this meeting was to present information that proves there is a very dire heavy metal contamination and UV radiation issue across the Shasta County region (and the world). A list of 10 experts presented data to the board to confirm the legitimacy of the concerns being addressed. At the end of the presentation, the board voted unanimously to investigate the heavy metal contamination and passed resolutions accordingly. The video below documents the events of this landmark day in the fight to expose the crime of global geoengineering, all experts are identified with labels in the video (the new edited, condensed version).
