Note: From my observations, “a series of ‘booms'” sounds like deep underground methane explosions.

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…

A cement truck, telephone pole and police kiosk were swallowed into the ground during a terrifying road collapse.
The 1,000 square-feet sinkhole appeared in front of a department store in the city, which has closed temporarily.
Emergency services quickly arrived on the scene and assessed the extent of the damage.
The cause of the collapse is still under investigation.
There have been a series of road collapses across China over recent years, leading to questions about the quality of road construction in the country.
Just last month, a motorway bridge collapsed in Guangdong province, southern China.
One person was killed and three others injured in the Guangdong accident.
A police SUV got stuck in a sinkhole Friday morning and the officer driving the car suffered minor injuries.The incident happened near the intersection of Santa Fe Drive and West Oxford Avenue in the south Denver metro area, right at the intersection of South Natches Court
TORONTO – There is a mystery afoot at the “end of the world.”
In September 2013, residents living in the Yamal Penninsula, a remote region in Siberia with the desolate moniker, found a crater that was 30 metres wide and 70 metres deep. In July 2014, two more were found. And now, Russian sources are reporting that dozens more have been found.
According to a Moscow scientist who spoke with The Siberian Times, the discovery of so many more holes is a cause for concern and should be investigated urgently.
Some scientists have theorized that the holes are formed due to a release of gas hydrates. The cause, they believe, is due to two conditions: unusually warm weather heating the surface and heat along geological fault lines that build up.
Note: I don’t believe the official “story” on these sinkhole craters. Physicist Susan Rennison theorizes some sinkholes are made by cosmic energy hitting the planet like a laser beam, although the sinkholes she pointed out were smooth around the top rim and shot straight down. These craters have a small amount of debris around the perimeter and funnel inward. Taking a look at the rock on the interior of the crater rim the rock appears to have been melted, there are no jagged edges anywhere and from the charred color, the inner wall appears to be burned.
Cosmic laser beams caused by incoming space weather anomalies? Military operations? UFO? Or something natural? Sadly, it’s highly doubtful we’ll get a straight answer from authorities.
Is it the end of the world in Siberia’s ’End of the World’?
Scientists suspect not, but they’re still investigating the strange and alarming holes that are swallowing up the Siberian north.
This week two new holes have been discovered, and with similar characteristics as the first reported hole: a very deep shaft with smooth sides, debris surrounding the rim, and water at the bottom.
The new holes reportedly have snow at the bottoms rather than water, and one witness described them, ’It is not like this is the work of men, but also doesn’t look like natural formation,’ in SiberianTimes.
The first ’black hole’ was discovered this month in the Yamal Peninsula (known as the “End of the World” for its remoteness) of northern Russia. A team of researchers was sent to examine the giant crater in the earth and find out how it was caused. Although theories ranged from meteorite strike and underground construction, to missiles or government weapons testing, a common speculation is natural gas explosions, or even Pingos – landforms, mounds and craters in permafrost formed by freezing and thawing conditions. However, most pingos appear as mounds with depressions in the top, like small volcanoes, and these Siberian holes seem to be very different, and more closely resemble perfectly formed sinkholes.
Scientists have visited the original hole, and although they haven’t offered a specific explanation they did say there was “nothing mysterious” about the phenomenon. “It is simply Mother Nature’s law with its internal pressure and changes in temperatures,” researcher Andrey Plekhanov told the Siberian Times last week. The area is extremely rich in natural gas and the leading theory is that a pocket of the substance combined with water, salt and rising temperatures to produce a significant — but apparently not unique — eruption. The investigation team will likely want to examine the second hole for more data, but no expedition has been announced.
Without definitive answers, the question remains – what exactly is happening at the ’End of the World’?

Last summer, 6-year-old Nathan Woessner was walking across the sands of Mount Baldy in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore when he suddenly disappeared into a deep hole.
It took a team of rescuers about three hours to pull Woessner to safety from beneath 11 feet (3.4 meters) of sand and sediment, according to the Chicago Tribune.
More holes have appeared in Mount Baldy, forcing officials with the National Park Service (NPS) to close part of the park, located 55 miles southeast of Chicago on the shores of Lake Michigan. But why are these dangerous holes suddenly appearing in the sand dunes?
“We don’t know exactly what’s going on out there,” Ken Mehne, law enforcement specialist for the park, told the Tribune. “We can’t let folks out onto the area until we know it’s safe.”
Deep holes appear and disappear
The incident deeply affected geologist Erin Argyilan, a professor of geosciences at Indiana University Northwest. She was doing research at the base of Mount Baldy when she heard the screams of Woessner’s parents.
“I cried for three days,” Argyilan, who was pregnant at the time and was unable to assist in the boy’s rescue, told the Tribune. “I couldn’t help in the moment. So now I have to do what I can to learn why this is happening.”
Other experts are also interested in the strange holes in Mount Baldy, several of which have appeared since last year, only to collapse and be filled in with sand a day later. Some of the holes were so deep they could not be measured with the researchers’ measuring tapes.
Is it quicksand?
According to scientists, quicksand – that old trope of jungle-adventure movies – actually does exist, though it’s not as deadly as it appears in Tarzan films.
Quicksand is a sloshy mix of sand and water that looks solid when viewed from above, but will collapse into a more liquid form if a heavy object, like a human or animal, disturbs it. After liquefying, the mix tends to solidify, trapping the legs of an animal in wet, heavy sand.
There are also dry forms of quicksand, according to researchers. Experiments under controlled laboratory conditions have shown that manmade sand can suck an object under its surface, but this type of deep, dry quicksand has never been observed in nature, and it’s not been established that Mount Baldy is an example of dry quicksand.
Using ground-penetrating radar
NPS crews have teamed with the Environmental Protection Agency researchers to get to the bottom of the mysterious holes in Mount Baldy. Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) has been used to get a better understanding of the large sand dune.
The GPR surveys revealed a layer of soil buried beneath the shifting sands that now cover Mount Baldy. That layer of soil was exposed to the surface during part of the 20th century, according to an NPS statement.
“This particular dune has a complicated history,” Argyilan said, referring to Mount Baldy. The site was once mined for sand used in the manufacture of glass Mason jars. There are also manmade structures like an old wooden staircase buried beneath the surface of the dune.
Old photos reveal what’s buried
Argyilan has examined historical photographs of the area to determine what has changed since the 1930s. Trees and grass that once covered Mount Baldy are now also buried.
These discoveries have led researchers to what they consider their leading hypothesis: Some items buried beneath the sandy surface – trees, brush or manmade structures or debris – “were buried by the rapid landward movement of the dune during the late 1900s,” according to an NPS statement.
“The age of the materials and the wet conditions during the spring of 2013 may have forced these materials to become unstable, collapsing and creating openings to the surface,” according to the statement.
The National Park Service is continuing to use GPR and core samples to determine what lies beneath Mount Baldy, and how that may contribute to the appearance of deep holes in the dune. For the time being, the area remains off-limits to park visitors.
A growing sinkhole in Florida has swallowed at least one home, caused another to begin collapsing and forced at least six homes to be evacuated. The sinkhole began opening in a neighborhood just north of downtown Dunedin, Fla., near Tampa, early this morning, according to ABC News affiliate WFTS-TV in Tampa.
By 7 a.m., the sinkhole was estimated at 80 feet wide and 40 feet deep, and still expanding, Dunedin Deputy Fire Chief Tripp Barrs told WFTS. Power and utility lines were cut off and officials evacuated at least six surrounding homes amid reports that a neighboring pool was also cracking.
Television footage also shows a boat and screened-in porch at the homeowner’s property had collapsed into the hole.
The Pinellas County homeowner Michael Dupre told TV station Bay News 9 that he heard what sounded like a “sledgehammer pounding on a wall” as the sinkhole began to open up. He also told the station a sinkhole-prevention company had been at his home the past two days pouring grout to stabilize the home’s foundation.
“There was a sinkhole before and we knew there was sinkhole activity,” Dupre said. “After the Seffner sinkhole, we were scared. We’ve been dealing with our insurance company and, finally, two days ago, they started working on our house. Now it looks like our home is gone.”
No injuries have been reported in the Dunedin sinkhole.
Dunedin is just outside of what state officials refer to as “sinkhole alley,” the counties of Hernando, Hillsborough and Pasco.

Wichita — Watch your step if you venture into Wallace County in western Kansas.
The Wallace County sheriff says a large sinkhole was discovered about a week ago eight miles north of Wallace.
They’re waiting on experts to come out and examine the sinkhole. They have no idea what caused it, and no injuries have been reported.
Ed Note: Wow…sinkhole?? Looks more like a canyon…it’s odd that they didn’t give measurements, the camera angle makes it difficult to gauge how big it is. Hmm..if sinkholes keep growing, maybe we’ll witness the making of Grand Canyon II “in the blink of an eye”. In evolutionary terms, that’ll really make the Darwinist’s really squirm! lol!!
The sinkhole in downtown Washington will continue to block lanes and impede traffic until the end of the work week, officials said Tuesday.
Authorities shut down parts of 14th and F streets in Northwest Washington last week after a pit opened at the intersection, which is blocks from the White House and in an area full of restaurants and hotels.
The work is taking so long because workers digging down to the sewer line have to navigate a complex thicket of utility lines and old trolley tracks, according to George S. Hawkins, general manager of the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority.
“It’s been the most complicated street repair I’ve seen since I’ve been on the job,” Hawkins said at a news conference in front of the sinkhole.
Work at the pit could cost nearly $2 million, Hawkins said.
All of the work should be completed and the roads reopened by Friday, said Paul A. Quander Jr., the deputy mayor for public safety.
“A lot of progress has been made,” Quander said. “We’ve been working around the clock to fix this.”
Northbound 14th Street remains blocked between Pennsylvania and New York avenues, while F Street is closed between 13th and 15th streets. Only southbound traffic can pass through the intersection.
If the roads do reopen Friday, the intersection will have been at least partially blocked for 10 days spanning two work weeks and a holiday weekend. Traffic was severely affected in the blocks around the closure, with cars and buses being diverted from a key artery in and out of the city.
While the cause of the sinkhole is still being investigated, Hawkins said it appears that the hole developed because a nearby manhole was blocking a storm drain.
The storm drain at the northwest corner of the intersection, in front of the Hamilton restaurant, is meant to funnel storm water into the sewer system. But a manhole was constructed that blocked the drain. As a result, water had nowhere to go and seeped into the dirt under the street.
“That’s our best hypothesis,” Hawkins said.
The blockage in the storm drain was discovered Friday when workers threaded a camera into the drain. Authorities don’t know when the manhole was installed, but the dirt appears to have been washed out over a period of several years, Hawkins said.
Comment: “That’s our best hypothesis…” Oh dear, authorities everywhere are soon gonna have to do better than that to explain the global
explosion in sinkholes to a population going “HUH?!”
The planet is opening up…
China and Russia appear to be taking the lead in the media with sinkholes swallowing cars and buildings. To be honest, you never can tell how bad things are getting in N America when mass media focus’s on Kim Kardashian’s baby bump and Angelina Jolie’s latest mediapalooza stunt.
Well sometimes you should not get up! This is the case of this Chinese family (3 children) driving in Hetian, western China’s Xinjiang Autonomous Region, when their car fell in a giant sinkhole that formed suddenly under it on may 16 2013. The Chinese family managed to scramble from their car despite not being able to open doors.
The sinkhole got bigger over the next 30 minutes until their vehicle almost completely disappeared.
According to authorities there used to be an air raid shelter below the road and heavy rain caused the cave-in.

California homes are falling between the cracks-literally.
About 100 miles north of San Francisco in a neighborhood called Lakeport, cracks in the ground that have turned into cavernous divides are splitting homes, causing them to break and sink beneath the ground.
The community was built upon now-dormant volcano Mount Konocti; officials can’t say whether or not the volcano is a contributing factor in the strange splitting occurrence.
“We have a dormant volcano, and I’m certain a lot of things that happen here (in Lake County) are as a result of that, but we don’t know about that,” county public works director Scott De Leon told Yahoo News.
Residents Scott and Robin Spivey noticed cracks in the walls of their Tudor-style home that widened by the day.
“We want to know what is going on here,” Spivey said.
Spivey, former city building inspector, and his wife were among the eight households that have now been evacuated in the Clear Lake area of Lake County. 10 more are on imminent evacuation notice.
“It’s a slow-motion disaster,” Randall Fitzgerald, Lakeside Heights resident, said.
These kinds of collapses that happen in volcanic areas with steep hills can move numerous feet one day, and a quarter of an inch the next.
Some, including Consultant Tom Ruppenthal of Utility Services Associates in Seattle say that groundwater is partly to blame. Water has surfaced in the area-there has suddenly been a wellspring of water at the top of hills, where not much groundwater runs-that erodes some of the land until it splits.
“It’s very common for groundwater to shift its course,” he said. “I think the groundwater has shifted.”
Until homeowners can settle finances with insurance companies-some of whom have left residents high and dry, as these kinds of home emergencies are not often covered-they will have to make due.
“It’s a tragedy, really,” contractor Dean Pick said while taking pictures in Lakeport for an insurance company. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Over the past year the world has experienced unprecedented and bizarre weather phenomena – from record breaking heat and cold to increasing earthquake activity worldwide. It’s not just global warming, but rather, a system wide surge of strange weather activity.
This video compiles extreme earth changes and weather events, with footage including meteors entering the atmosphere, sinkholes opening up worldwide, the discovery of dark lightning, increasing volcano activity, and a uniquely unusual UFO sighting in Ireland.
While this video does NOT imply extreme weather is a result of human activity – it does suggest that climate change is real and occurring all around us. Whatever the source, one may ask – will extreme weather define our world’s history for decades to come?
One of the houses in the town of Buturlino was completely demolshed. Residents managed to escape the building a few minutes before it literally collapsed like a house of cards on Wednesday night.
“I just barely left the house as everything around started to collapse,” Aleksey Ionychev told Russia’s Channel One.
“I looked and saw a poplar, 15 to 20 meters high, went under the ground and straight away I heard loud sounds of water running, like a waterfall, and then saw a 10 meters crater,” the man said. “It’s good that we are alive, but the house was new and everything we had, so to say, we lost. The house was not insured and of course no one cares about it.”
Initial reports suggested people were injured in the incident. However, it was later confirmed that no one sustained traumatic harm. “Information about dead and injured that appeared in media is not true,” the head of the local administration Nikolay Chichkov told Rossyiskaya Gazeta.
Thirty-three residents of nearby areas have been immediately evacuated. There were no people in one of the collapsed buildings, while the third damaged building was used for grain storage.
The Ionychev family reportedly moved to their relatives’ house, along with other residents.
According to Chichkov, the sinkhole not only demolished the three buildings, but also caused ruptures in electricity and gas utility lines. By the afternoon, gas utilities and power had been restored. The sinkhole remains cordoned off by emergency services.
The reasons behind the accident have not been made public so far. “There is a version that the sinkhole was caused by subterranean waters, which rose due to snow melting,” the regional head wrote on his blog.
Some experts also pointed to a railroad some 90 meters away from the place of the accident. However, trains are still passing the scene, though they have been forced to slow down to 60 kph.
The town of Buturlino, with a population of 6,500, is some 120 kilometers southeast of the city of Nizhniy Novgorod in central Russia. According to the 2010 census, Nizhniy Novgorod is home to over 1,250,000 people.
Wow! Gaia is really wreaking havoc, what’s really incredible is considering the massive flooding, a dam breaking, the large earthquakes and volcanic activity taking place in some of the poorest parts of the world, “relatively” few lives appear to have been lost.
Naturally my prayers go out to all the families have who lost loved ones, but when you take a look at the sheer volume of destruction in some places, IMO the death toll could’ve been considerably higher. For instance, tornado’s in Italy are rare, people there likely haven’t been taught how to take cover and stay safe in tornadic conditions; in addition, there weren’t any sirens to forewarn people in the tornado’s path either.
Earths management team has a good handle on assisting Gaia and her children through the shift with with as little loss of life as possible. Fortunately, we’re a resilient race and can be quite resourceful when faced with crisis, and lucky survivors when confronting danger. There’s no reason for fear, we’re always right where we’re supposed to be…
Also, I think it was in the second video that a helicopter cameraman catches footage of Saturn’s rings from his camera!! Very cool..
