N Korea floods kill 169, 400 missing

FLOODS which hit parts of North Korea in the past few weeks have killed 169 people and left 400 missing, the state news agency announced on Saturday, sharply updating earlier casualty figures.

The floods and torrential rain between late June and the end of July also made 212,200 people homeless and washed away or inundated 65,280 hectares of cropland, the agency said.

United Nations agencies have visited the worst-hit areas to assess aid needs and the World Food Program (WFP) is sending an initial shipment of emergency food aid.

North Korea suffered a famine in the 1990s that killed hundreds of thousands and still struggles to feed its people even in normal times.

It had been estimated by UN agencies, even before the current deluge, that three million people would need food aid this year.

More than 8600 houses were destroyed and another 43,770 swamped, and more than 1400 schools, hospitals and factories collapsed, the news agency said.

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/48500807/ns/weather/

After a lull in the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, Tropical Storm Florence formed on Saturday, joining Ernesto as both moved west on paths that could eventually take them to the U.S. coast.

Florence has sustained winds up to 45 mph, the National Hurricane Center reported.
 
It was still in the deep Atlantic, but on a path towards the Caribbean.
 
Ernesto was packing sustained winds of 50 mph and should pass south of Jamaica on Sunday, the center stated. "Ernesto is forecast to become a hurricane ... in a day or two," it added.
 
After Jamaica, which issued a tropical storm warning, Ernesto will likely head toward Grand Cayman, arriving Monday, and then Cancun/Cozumel in Mexico on Wednesday, weather.com reported.
 
Weather.com added it was "unclear whether Ernesto poses a threat to the U.S. late next week."
 
On Friday, the storm swept over the tiny island of St. Lucia.

Businesses and government offices were ordered closed until noon on St. Lucia as Ernesto passed over the island, churning up 12-foot waves a few miles off its north shore.
 
It moved so quickly that St. Lucia got less than an inch of rain and there were no reports of damage or injuries.
 
August and September are usually the most active months of the Atlantic-Caribbean hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30.
 
Prior to Ernesto forming on Thursday, the last Atlantic tropical storm was Debby more than a month ago. It drenched Florida and eight deaths were tied to the storm.
 
U.S. government forecasters in May predicted a "normal" 2012 season, saying 9-15 named storms could be expected. Between 4-8 of those were predicted to become hurricanes.

Two dead as storms hit Austria, northern Italy

8/5/12

Storms wreaked havoc in Austria and northern Italy over the weekend, causing landslides that killed two people, authorities said Sunday.

An 84-year-old woman was killed when a landslide hit a farm in Afens, on the Italian side of the border with Austria.

In nearby Tulfer, the body of another woman who had been declared missing after her house was struck by a mud flow, was uncovered on Sunday morning.

Major storms lashed much of Austria and German-speaking northern Italy late Saturday, causing flooding and power cuts, and disrupting rail and road connections.

About 1,000 homes were without electricity Sunday morning in the Virgental valley in southern Austria.

In South Tyrol, a northern province of Italy also known as Alto Adige, some 500 emergency workers, firefighters and civil protection officers were mobilised to deal with the damages.

The rail line between Austria and Italy over the Brenner Pass was buried by a landslide overnight and was expected to remain shut for two weeks.

Road and rail connections were also shut elsewhere in Austria, including in Tyrol, Styria and Salzburg provinces. Most were due to re-open on Sunday but others remained closed due to a further risk of landslides.

In Styria, several houses had to be evacuated after they were flooded, and cellars in northern Austria were also filled with water following heavy rain.

A few barns meanwhile went up in flames after they were hit by lightning, with over 250 animals perishing at one farm in northern Austria.

China evacuates 450,000 after Philippines turned into 'waterworld' by Typhoon Haikui

8/7/12

Shanghai and the nearby coastal province Zhejiang have evacuated 456,000 people as China prepares for its third typhoon in less than a week.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/china/9458221/China-evacuates-450000-after-Philippines-turned-into-waterworld-by-Typhoon-Haikui.html

The emergency measures were taken after Typhoon Haikui turned Manila, the Philippines capital into "waterworld", killing 50 people.
 
The typhoon is expected to make landfall in Zhejiang province, just south of Shanghai, late Tuesday or early Wednesday, the China Meteorological Administration said.
 
Shanghai officials fear the storm could be the worst since 2005, when Typhoon Matsa killed seven people in the city, state media said.
 
The city aimed to move 200,000 people to more than a hundred shelters by Tuesday evening, government officials were quoted as saying.
 
The Shanghai government ordered outdoor construction sites shut down and cancelled summer classes for children until the typhoon had eased.

http://www.sddt.com/News/article.cfm?SourceCode=20120809ca&_t=Southern+Calif+to+continue+baking+in+heat+wave

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Forecasters say there's no relief in sight and Southern California's heat wave is expected to continue through this week, with temperatures peaking Thursday and Friday.

The National Weather Service says Woodland Hills topped its 1982 record of 106 on Wednesday, when the mercury reached 107.

On Monday, the San Fernando Valley hotspot tied its record temperature of 108 degrees that was set in 1997.

Southern California Edison is ramping up the number of crews available to respond to possible power outages as sweltering temperatures send electricity use climbing.

The company is urging conservation and saying that high electricity use _ particularly from air conditioners _ is straining distribution equipment, but no power outages have been reported.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/07/south-africa-snowfall_n_1752105.html

JOHANNESBURG — People slowly came outside despite the cold wind Tuesday across South Africa, pointed their mobile phone cameras to the sky and opened their mouths to taste a rare snowfall that fell on much of the country.

The snow began Tuesday morning, part of an extreme cold snap now biting into a nation still in its winter months. By mid-afternoon, officials recorded snowfall across most of South Africa. However, forecasters acknowledged snow remains so unusual that they typically aren't prepared to provide details about snowfall in the nation.

The snow closed some roads and at least one high-altitude pass. The snowfall also closed several border posts in the country.

As the snow fell, workers at offices in Johannesburg rushed outside. Some twirled and danced as the flakes fell. One man rushed to the top of a snow-covered hill and slid down, using a cardboard box as an improvised toboggan. Despite the cold and the snow, beggars who line traffic lights in the city continued to ask passing motorists for cash.

The snow grew heavier in the afternoon in Johannesburg, covering rooftops and slicking roads. Snowflakes are a rare commodity in Johannesburg, even during winter. South African Weather Service records show it has snowed in Johannesburg on only 22 other days in the last 103 years. The last snow fell there in June 2007.

In Pretoria, the country's capital, flurries filled the sky during a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. It was the first snowfall there since 1968, the weather service said.

The cold weather is expected to last a few days.

That's some interesting numbers. In 103 years (37,595 days), only 22 days it snowed (0.05851%). And two (9%) of those 22 days have fallen within 5 years of each other. Statistically, that's a high concentration of snow days historically in a small time frame. Seems like an increase of late to me. I'm thinking if there is an increase in heat, there will an increase in cold as well in the opposing regions.

Lightning strikes makeshift mosque in Bangladesh, kills 13

8/10/12

Dhaka, Bangladesh (CNN) -- At least 13 people were killed and 20 wounded when lightning struck a makeshift mosque in a remote village in northeast Bangladesh on Friday, police said.
 
The lightning strike occurred as people gathered for a special evening prayer known as taraweeh that is conducted during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
 
"Multiple lightning strikes occurred during a storm when nearly 35 people gathered at a house in the village of Saraswati where they turned a tin roof shed into a makeshift mosque for the month of Ramadan as a regular mosque was far away," Dharmapasha police chief Bayes Alam told CNN.
 
The village Saraswati is some 200 kilometers (124 miles) from the capital of Dhaka.
 
Heavy rains in recent weeks have swollen the Saraswati River, making access to the village difficult.
 
"As boats were the only mode of transport to go out of the village, it took several hours to take the critically wounded people to the hospital," said Akm Mezanul Haque, the officer-in-charge of the Modhyanagar police station, who joined the rescue operation.
 
Of the 13 killed by the lightning strike, Mohammad Shahabuddin, the imam, and two others died at the mosque, Alam said. Ten others were declared dead at a Dharmapasha area hospital, he said.
 
Area residents and police took the wounded, many in critical condition, to the area hospital.

Unusual Summer Storm Blasts the Arctic

A rare summer storm blasted the Arctic this week, beginning off the coast of Alaska, and moving over much of the Arctic Sea for several days before dissipating.

Although the storm itself was uncommon — NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., estimates that there have only been about eight similarly strong August storms in the last 34 years — the real news behind the meteorological event is the stunning Aug. 6 photo taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite. The cyclone is spinning toward the North Pole, with Greenland visible in the bottom-left of the image. Scientists are left speculating what the impact of such a storm could be.

From NASA:

Quote
Arctic storms such as this one can have a large impact on the sea ice, causing it to melt rapidly through many mechanisms, such as tearing off large swaths of ice and pushing them to warmer sites, churning the ice and making it slushier, or lifting warmer waters from the depths of the Arctic Ocean.

“It seems that this storm has detached a large chunk of ice from the main sea ice pack. This could lead to a more serious decay of the summertime ice cover than would have been the case otherwise, even perhaps leading to a new Arctic sea ice minimum,” said Claire Parkinson, a climate scientist with NASA Goddard. “Decades ago, a storm of the same magnitude would have been less likely to have as large an impact on the sea ice, because at that time the ice cover was thicker and more expansive.”

8/10/12

Record heat wave taxes California's power grid; alert issued

Amid a record heat wave, Californians are being urged to conserve power.
 
The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning through Friday for several spots in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, including mountain ranges and valleys, with triple-digit heat projected in much of the region.
 
The heat wave comes as Southern California has been coping without the 2,200 megawatts of power normally generated by the San Onofre nuclear plant. The plant has been out of service for more than six months due to equipment problems.
 
The flex alert issued by the California Independent System Operator is in effect from Friday through Sunday. During that time, consumers are asked to set air conditioning at 78 degrees or higher or turn it off while away from home, turn off unnecessary lights and appliances and restrict use of major appliances to the morning and late evening.
 
Flex alerts are a measure to encourage energy conservation at times when the statewide energy grid could become strained, leading to outages.

Nine waterspouts spotted on Lake Michigan
8/18/12

UPDATE: The National Weather Service is now reporting nine waterspouts from two separate storms were witnessed on Lake Michigan.

SOUTH HAVEN, MI — Waterspouts have been spotted over Lake Michigan today and forecasters say it’s possible more could spawn tonight and Sunday night.

The National Weather Service said three of the tornado-like vortices were reported to them shortly before noon on Saturday, by people who were out on a fishing boat in Lake Michigan this morning.

The spouts were spotted about 24 miles west of the South Haven lighthouse.

The storms that caused them were small, 15-minute “pop-ups,” said William Moreno, a meteorologist in the NWS office in Grand Rapids.

Conditions were right this morning for the waterspouts, Moreno said, with a land breeze converging over lake water warmed by the summer heat.

The water in that part of the lake, the widest part of Lake Michigan, is about 72 degrees, he said. Winds in spout areas often reach 40 to 60 mph. Boaters or swimmers are advised to seek shelter when they are spotted.

Waterspouts are relatively rare, but have been seen already this summer off Holland.

Related: 'Ingredients were just right' for Holland waterspouts, experts explain

Scattered storms have been moving over the central Lower Peninsula on Saturday. Clusters have moved east from Muskegon through Montcalm and Isabella counties, said Moreno.

The outflow boundary from the storm cluster has been darkening skies over southern Kent County and the Grand Rapids area, and that could produce a storm in the next few hours, he said.

Tonight and Sunday night, the air over Wisconsin and Michigan will cool again, said Moreno, and the situation that produced the spouts could be repeated,

National Weather Service offices in Milwaukee, Gaylord and Chicago are forecasting waterspouts on Sunday, he said.

"Tomorrow is better because we have a cold front coming south. The convection will be deeper and that will encourage more in the way of waterspouts.”

8/21/12

Typhoon Tembin might make landfall Thursday

TAIPEI -- Tropical Storm Tembin (天枰) has been upgraded to a typhoon and is likely to turn northwest toward Taiwan today, the Central Weather Bureau said yesterday.

If the typhoon turns as forecast, its eye may make landfall on Taiwan's east coast Thursday, according to the weather bureau.

As of 8 a.m., the eye of Tembin was located 620 kilometers southeast of Eluanbi, off the southernmost tip of Taiwan, moving at a speed of 8 km per hour in a northerly direction.

Tembin, the 14th storm of the Pacific typhoon season, is packing winds of 119 kph, with gusts of up to 155 kph, and has a radius of 150 km, the bureau said.

The typhoon is likely to move toward Taiwan on a northwesterly track Tuesday and take a more westerly turn Wednesday, the bureau said.

A sea warning for Tembin is likely to be issued Tuesday morning and areas around Taiwan should be prepared for strong winds and heavy rain Wednesday to Friday, the bureau warned.

Meanwhile, a tropical depression that formed near Guam on Sunday was still located 2,300 km from Taiwan as of 8 a.m. Monday and it may strengthen into a tropical storm over the next two days, the bureau said.


Tropical Storm Bolaven Forms, May Move Toward Taiwan

 A tropical depression near Guam has been upgraded into Tropical Storm Bolaven (布拉萬) and may move toward Taiwan on a west-northwesterly track over the next few days, the Central Weather Bureau said yesterday.

Bolaven formed a day after Typhoon Tembin developed at sea east of Luzon near the northern Philippines.

 As of 2 p.m. Monday, Bolaven, the 15th storm of the Pacific typhoon season, was centered 2,200 kilometers southeast of Taiwan near Guam, according to the bureau's latest statistics.

 It is moving at a speed of 9 km per hour, packing winds of 65 kph, with gusts of up to 90 kph and a radius of 100 km.

The bureau said it remains to be seen what kind of influence the storm will have on Taiwan.

 Meanwhile, Typhoon Tembin continues its northerly path toward the sea east of Taiwan. It is forecast to turn northwest toward Taiwan on Tuesday.

As of 2 p.m. Monday, the eye of Tembin was located 590 km southeast of Eluanbi on Taiwan's southern tip, moving in a northerly direction at a speed of 11 kph.

It was packing winds of 144 kph, with gusts reaching 180 kph, said the bureau.

As the storm and typhoon are located 1,700 km apart from each other, there are currently no signs that they will interact with each other, it said.

Also on Monday, the Taipei City Department of Health called on the public to prepare for the typhoon by stocking up on food and water supplies to last for three days.

 Bolaven is the Laotian word for plateau or mesa, while Tembin is Japanese for the constellation Libra

Two typhoons to hit coastal areas(China)

By Wang Qian  (China Daily)09:04, August 23, 2012

Two powerful typhoons are heading toward China, putting the weather-beaten nation on alert again after four storms have caused landfalls across the country since the start of August.

"Typhoons Tembin and Bolaven may have a combined impact on coastal areas in the coming 10 days," Zhang Chang'an, chief forecaster at the China Meteorological Administration, said on Wednesday.

Both storms are strengthening, with Bolaven expected to be the strongest typhoon to hit China this year if it lands in the country, Zhang said, adding that the storm will bring maximum winds of 220 km/h.

The National Commission on Disaster Reduction issued a typhoon alert on Wednesday, warning authorities to make emergency plans.

Tembin was about 2,000 km from the coast of Zhejiang province on Wednesday, moving at a speed of 5 km/h.

The administration has asked authorities in potential affected areas to set up warning signs in high-risk areas such as construction sites and low-lying areas, and open emergency shelters including schools and stadiums for evacuation of affected people.

The Fujian Meteorological Bureau urged boats to take shelter in ports by Wednesday to avoid possible damage brought by Tembin.

8/23/12

Bosnian authorities put the entire country on red alert Thursday against a heatwave that has seen the Balkan nation bake in its hottest summer on record, the national weather institute said.

Meteorologist Dzenan Zulum said the months of June, July and August had been the hottest since measurements were first recorded 120 years ago.

In some places, the mercury has soared to 41 degrees Celsius (105.8 Fahrenheit) and temperatures in the capital Sarajevo have in recent days been about seven degrees Celsius warmer than normal.

"We predict a similar temperature for the next two or three days followed by a slight cooling from Sunday," Zulum said.

Farmers say between 50-80 percent of their crops have been damaged in the heatwave, and water distribution to several towns has been disrupted.

Bosnia is also battling dozens of forest fires in the south and east of the country, with many hundreds of hectares (acres) of land burned.

Heavy rain, floods kill 26 in Pakistan: officials

http://www.terradaily.com/reports/Heavy_rain_floods_kill_26_in_Pakistan_officials_999.html

8/23/12

Flash floods and landslides triggered by heavy rain have killed at least 26 people and destroyed hundreds of houses in northern Pakistan, officials said on Thursday.

Chaudhry Abdul Majeed, the prime minister of Pakistan-administered Kashmir said at least 17 people have been killed and nine others injured in six districts since Monday.

"Some 685 houses and 125 shops have been damaged and roads washed away," Majeed said, adding that a request has been made to the federal government for financial help.

Irshad Bhatti, a spokesman for the country's National Disaster Management Authority, said the extent of the damage was still being assessed.

The majority of the deaths in Kashmir came when buildings collapsed due to the rains, and a further nine people died in flooding in the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, officials said.

Death toll from S. Korea typhoon rises to 18

8/29/12

http://news.yahoo.com/31-chinese-fishermen-missing-typhoon-hits-korea-225335938.html

South Korean rescuers Wednesday recovered two more bodies near two wrecked Chinese fishing boats, bringing the confirmed death toll from a powerful typhoon to 18.
 
Typhoon Bolaven -- the strongest to hit the South for almost a decade -- left a trail of death and damage in southwestern and south-central regions of the country.
 
It drove two Chinese fishing ships aground early Tuesday off the southern island of Jeju, sparking a dramatic rescue operation.
 
Coastguards wearing wetsuits struggled through high waves and pulled a total of 12 people to safety, and six swam ashore. Eight bodies had been recovered as of Wednesday and seven were still missing, the coastguard in Jeju said.
 
Dozens of divers are involved in the ongoing search. The coastguard said in a statement it would make "utmost efforts" to account for all the missing.

N. Korea says typhoon killed 48 people
by Staff Writers
Seoul (AFP) Sept 3, 2012

A strong typhoon which hit North Korea last week killed 48 people and left more than 50 injured or missing, the country's state news agency said on Monday.

Typhoon Bolaven pounded the Korean peninsula last Tuesday, leaving a trail of death and damage in the two Koreas.

In addition to the casualties, 21,180 people were left homeless by the storm, which destroyed or inundated 6,700 houses, toppled more than 16,730 trees and disabled 880 industrial and public buildings, the North's official Korean Central News Agency said.

Bolaven also damaged at least 50,000 hectares of farmland, ravaging crops in 45,320 hectares of paddy and non-paddy fields, it said.

'It was like a war zone'

Thousands of homes and businesses in Anchorage and Mat-Su remained without power Wednesday as residents recovered from an overnight storm that blasted the region with high winds, uprooted trees and tore down electrical lines.

Roughly 6,000 Chugach Electric customers, 3,000 Matanuska Electric Association and an unknown number of Municipal Light & Power households still did not have electricity as of about 2:30 p.m., the utilities said. The companies hoped to restore power by Wednesday night but said some families and businesses may have to wait until Thursday.

No serious injuries had been reported as of noon Wednesday.

The storm arrived unusually early in the season, catching leafy trees like kites and yanking roots from rain-soaked soil before it was frozen.

"Nobody here can remember a storm this strong, this early in the season," said Shaun Baines, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service office in Anchorage.

9/8/12

NEW YORK (AP) — Firefighters are assessing damage caused by a cyclone that struck a beachfront neighborhood in New York City.

Videos taken by bystanders show a funnel cloud hurling sand and debris in the air as it moved through the Breezy Point section of the Rockaway peninsula in Queens on Saturday.

A Fire Department spokesman says there were power lines down and possibly other damage.

The general manager of the Breezy Point Surf Club tells The Associated Press the storm ripped up cabanas and even picked up industrial-sized metal trash bins.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for Queens and Brooklyn as the storm moved through the city. It expired at 11:30 a.m.

The service says radar detected a "strong rotation" in the storm.

Infant, 3 others killed in northeast Okla. storms

NOWATA, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say a couple and their grandchild had no time to reach a shelter before winds from a severe thunderstorm flung their mobile home into a creek in northeast Oklahoma, killing them.

The three were among four people who died in severe storms that blasted through Oklahoma on Friday. A Missouri truck driver also was killed when winds flipped his semi.

Nowata County sheriff's deputy Rick Harper said Saturday the winds picked up the mobile home and carried it about 100 yards before it landed. Harper says the home basically "disintegrated" and officials found the bodies in the water after a two-hour search.

National Weather Service meteorologist Pete Snyder says radar didn't show a tornado in the area, but a team was dispatched to determine what happened.

2 tornadoes strike in NYC



NEW YORK (AP) — Two tornadoes struck New York City on Saturday, one swept out of the sea and hit a beachfront neighborhood and the second, stronger twister hit moments later, hurling debris in the air, knocking out power and startling residents who once thought of twisters as a Midwestern phenomenon.
 
Videos taken by bystanders showed a funnel cloud sucking up water, then sand, and then small pieces of buildings, as the first moved through the Breezy Point section of the Rockaway peninsula in Queens.
 
The second hit west, in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn also near the water, about seven minutes later. The National Weather Service said winds were up to 110 miles per hour, and several homes and trees were damaged.
 
Residents had advance notice. The weather service had issued a tornado warning for Queens and Brooklyn at around 10:40 a.m. The storm took people by surprise anyway when it struck about 20 minutes later.

I have been trying to find statistics on what the actual increases are in worldwide disasters and/or unexplained animal deaths. I have been following this subject on several sites and I am unable to find definative information.
My daughter thinks I am crazy ( I am trying to win her to Christ and open her eyes to prophecy being played out before our eyes). I feel if I can document proof of actual numbers, I may have a chance of chipping away at her armour. I realize only Jesus can save her, but I can not be silent.
For instance, how many earthquakes in 1920, 1960, 1980, 2000, 2012 etc.
                   how many tornadoes..........
                   how many volcanic eruptions, etc etc.
If anyone has compliled this type of data, I would appreciate any info, Thanks!

As for your son daughter thinking your crazy for warning about the end times? Believe me, I'm in the same boat, with the exception being that I'm getting these reactions from FELLOW PROFESSING CHRISTIANS. For example, when I saw one of them listening to some Rob Bell nonsense, I tried to warn them over his doctrinal heresies(ie-him going on the networks saying Hell doesn't exist, Christians are crazy for believing it does, Jesus didn't shed his blood on the cross for our sins, etc), and they thought just that...I was hateful, crazy, too much time on my hands, etc. And I also get the same reactions when I try to warn about the evil fruit of the Roman Catholic Church.

Only the Holy Spirit can draw them, ultimately. Just pray and be patient.

http://news.yahoo.com/u-2012-far-hottest-record-192659729.html

In U.S., 2012 so far is hottest year on record

9/10/12

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The first eight months of 2012 have been the warmest of any year on record in the contiguous United States, and this has been the third-hottest summer since record-keeping began in 1895, the U.S. National Climate Data Center said on Monday.
 
Each of the last 15 months has seen above-average temperatures, something that has never happened before in the 117 years of the U.S. record, said Jake Crouch, a climate scientist at the data center.
 
Winter, spring and summer 2012 have all been among the top-five hottest for their respective seasons, Crouch said by telephone, and that too is unique in the U.S. record. There has never been a warmer September-through-August period than in 2011-2012, he said.
 
"We're now, in terms of statistics, in unprecedented territory for how long this warm spell has continued in the contiguous U.S.," Crouch said.

http://articles.cnn.com/2012-09-15/asia/world_asia_typhoon-sanba_1_okinawa-powerful-storms-japanese-island

9/15/12

Typhoon Sanba was aiming squarely at South Korea early Sunday after passing over the Japanese island of Okinawa, according to regional forecasters.

It made landfall in northeastern Okinawa around 6:30 a.m. Sunday (5:30 p.m. ET Saturday) with an eye that was nearly half the island's length.

There were no immediate reports of damage.

As of 9:50 p.m. ET, Samba was moving to the north at 30 kph (18 mph), the Japan Meteorological Association said.

The storm has maximum sustained winds of estimated winds of 194 kph (120 mph) and gusts nearing 241 kph (149 mph), according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, the U.S. military agency responsible for issuing tropical storm warnings in the Pacific Ocean.

Category 2 Sanba closes in on Korea; 92L enters the Lesser Antilles
http://classic.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/comment.html?entrynum=2232

9/16/12

The winds are rising in Busan, South Korea, and heavy rain is lashing the Korean Peninsula and Southern Japan as Category 2 Typhoon Sanba steams northwards at 22 mph. Sanba pounded Okinawa, Japan early Sunday morning local time as a Category 3 storm with 120 mph winds, but no casualties or heavy damage has been reported thus far. Radar loops show that the large 35-mile diameter eye of Sanba passed over the northern part of Okinawa. Oku, on the northern tip of the island, experienced the eyewall, and recorded a gust of 124 mph (55.3 m/s). At Kadena Air Force Base, the eye of Sanba missed, passing just to the north. The winds peaked at 56 mph, gusting to 77 mph, at 8:30 am local time, after the eye passed to the northeast, and the base received 6.30" of rain. High wind shear of 25 - 35 knots is now affecting Sanba, and satellite loops show that the typhoon is weakening, with the cloud tops warming and dry air wrapping into the core. Radar out of Korea shows that heavy rains from Sanba cover most of the Korean Peninsula, and heavy rain is likely to be the main threat from Sanba in Korea. Sanba will continue to weaken as it encounters cooler waters and higher wind shear today, and is likely to be at Category 1 strength at landfall in South Korea near 22 UTC on Sunday.

It may be rather calm now(it's been a slow news day for the last few or so days)...but nonetheless the writing is on the wall, and in bold print.

Yeah, the Illuminati will telegraph their punches via the entertainment media. Who knows when all of this goes down, but don't be surprised when one day we wake up and either log on to the internet or turn on the MSM tv, some kind of "event" is being splashed all over the news(ie-Iran being striked, "the big one" on the West Coast, food shortages being made official after this long summer drought, the euro collapses, etc).

Watch, and Be Sober and Ready.
