My previous article mentioned that scientists expected floodings in the US west coasts.
This sudden snow storm of historic proportions is a new one to me.
Even another major storm hitting Queensland so sion again is pretty sad.


Actually the conservatives have been saying there will be an earthquake and California will break away and sink into the Pacific, but their reasoning is slightly different than yoursLOL

In fact there were several psychic predictions about the world n USA too. Dome mentioned that Australia would be safe n Singapore would be a gonner too. Some mentioned earth overheating. Hope summer this time will not be extremely hot.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to witness the end of the world? Have you ever imagined what the last few hours on earth could be like? The recent blizzard in Chicago was so terrifyingly awe-inspiring, that the people who experienced it, felt like they had been transported into a scene from a movie like 2012 or Armageddon. I've seen many furious monsoons in India, and experienced pretty nasty snowstorms myself in Wisconsin. However, after talking to some folks from Chicago last night – the Lakeshore lockdown was the experience of a lifetime.

 

Imagine driving home from work one evening in the snow. You have done it several times before, this is no different, nothing new. You hold your wheels tight and cautiously drive, navigating through the peak time traffic compounded with sheets of snow. Your speed slows down to 5 miles an hour and you eventually come to a halt behind the car in front of you. It is just another traffic jam, it always happens when it snows like this. But as minutes turn to hours, you seen realize this is different, very different. Inch by inch, the snow is up against your tires, threatening to bury you by dawn.

 

Finally you decide to abandon your vehicle and seek shelter for the night. As soon as you exit, the wind whips you almost sweeping you off your feet. To your east is mighty lake Michigan, churning in turmoil, waves whipping on the shore. Sheets of snow continue to fall from the dark overcast skies, and loud rumbling sounds startle you. Lightning strikes across the horizon, photographing the city coming to a halt. It is thunder snow, one of mother nature's spectacular and furious displays.  Rows of abandoned cars eerily lay still on the road,  as you stagger in the wind to safety. It is almost like experiencing the wrath at the end of the world.

 

You awake to live another day, but the picture is still like that of an end of the world movie.

Yes indeed aptly described Sarina ji.
The end of the world and we prepare for the Grand Finale.
Many things will become insignificant I guess and some will keep on crying.

Official: 7 dead, almost 1 million displaced from Sri Lanka flooding

The floods have caused widespread devastation.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    Five navy personnel out on relief work are missing, a disaster management official says He says almost 1,000 houses have been destroyed Displaced victims are housed in 505 welfare centers
  • At least five people died during a rescue attempt, an army official says

Colombo, Sri Lanka (CNN) -- Heavy rains in Sri Lanka's North Central and Eastern provinces have displaced almost a million people and caused widespread devastation, a government official said Saturday.

The displaced have been housed in 505 welfare centers and relief efforts are under way, said Pradeen Kodippili, assistant director of the Colombo-based Disaster Management Center.

"We have confirmed there are seven deaths," Kodippili said. "Five navy personnel who were deployed on relief work are also reported missing."

In addition, he said, five others were injured, and two others were missing.

Kodippili said almost 1,000 houses have been destroyed.

The worst hit areas were the districts of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa in the North Central province, said Maj. Gen. Boniface Perera, a Sri Lankan army commander.

The eastern districts of Trincomalee, Batticaloa and Ampara are also affected.

Prisons flooded in Anuradhapura, and inmates had to be moved to three different prisons.

In the Polonnaruwa district, the town of Medirigirya was fully submerged in water Saturday. Perera said army search-

and-rescue teams -- assisted by naval craft -- were deployed for evacuation work.

The intensity of the raging flood waters was illustrated by an incident Thursday night.

Perera said his headquarters received a distress call that a group of villagers were marooned on a patch of land and that rising waters would swallow them within hours. Two boats were sent for their rescue at midnight Thursday. When one boat with the 17 villagers came within 50 meters (55 yards) away from their berthing point, gushing waters lifted the boat and smashed it on a culvert.

The boat broke into three pieces, leaving at least five people -- a navy sailor, a 6-year-old child, an 8-year-old child, a man and woman -- dead. Others who were swept away clung to trees and were rescued by the second boat. Troops used flashlights in the heavy downpour to locate them, Perera said.

Relief efforts were accelerating, said Sri Lanka's ministry of disaster management.

Pointless, man will end up destroying another planet. Anyway there are none nearby.
Gotta plant more trees and recycle our waste, use less plastics etc. Enviromental awareness is needed.
