I had NO idea of the extent of the damage caused by the devastating mudslides in Montecito this past January. Half an inch of rain fell in 15 minutes, releasing millions of yards of mountain material and debris through homes until it reached the ocean. Sandstone boulders as big as fire engines, traveled at up to 30mph, spinning and plowing through homes resulting in at least 21 deaths. Family members were separated by hundreds of yards in seconds, as up to 15 ft high walls of mud, rushed through. A 77 year old volunteer for the SB bucket brigade, said it’s the worst scene she’s seen in her lifetime of helping after disasters around the US. 😔 — The reason that this happened: The massive Thomas Fires of December, left no organic material to help with water absorption on the mountain side. With no tree or root structures remaining, and only a thick heavy layer of ash, came a “hydrophobic” situation. This resulted in the top layer of the side of the mountain, sliding like jello, towards the ocean. ⛰ Counties with volcanic activity like Japan and Brazil, have experience with this, but for an area that has never had wildfires and heavy rain back to back, this was a new phenomenon. In California, many houses have no basement and are built with stucco on concrete slabs. When mud of heavy density hits these homes, it can release them from their foundations and carry them like boats.. If you have free time, the SB bucket brigade, @habitatforhumanity and others, will be working hard for some time to come to remove mud and help find buried possessions. Finding even the smallest item, means the world for those that have lost loved ones. #volunteer #montecito #santabarbara #community #neverforget #california #wildfires #rebuilding @elyesgabel @joshfoglio

Dr. Jen Beverly presenting "Influence of stand structure, fuel architecture and land cover on fire behaviour" at the Department of Renewable Resources Seminar Series. The path and extent of a contagious disturbance like a wildfire will depend in part on the type and arrangement of land cover patches distributed across the affected area. The pattern of different fuel types, stand-ages, burned areas, unburned patches and non-fuels creates heterogeneity across a landscape that influences fire behaviour and fire size distributions. Fire stopping points, or boundaries, are known to coincide with changes in land cover or vegetation structure. An understanding of fire-fuel interactions is critical for informing emerging fire management practices like fuel management and strategic fire containment planning. Fuel management is implemented at multiple spatial scales. At the landscape scale, the aim is to manage the mosaic of fuel patches and other land cover types to create discontinuities in vegetation that will then inhibit the growth of large fires. At the stand level, fuel management is used to modify the architecture of fuels within a forest stand to create fuel complexes less conducive to high intensity fire. Strategic fire containment planning is used to identify likely fire stopping points, based on existing land cover types and configurations. This seminar will provide an overview of fire-fuel interactions and will summarize a number of recent and planned research investigations that aim to inform fuel management practices and strategic fire containment planning. Renewable Resources regularly offers public seminars by scientists and policymakers, University of Alberta faculty members, and research collaborators, to showcase important topics of research, the diversity of our current research and show its linkage to management practices and policy. #ualberta #wildfire #wildfires #firescience #fuelmanagement #firebhaviour #firebehavior

read the full article on strangesounds.org In the last 3 days, space rocks are literally falling from the sky. Bright fireballs and meteor have been reported over Spain, Canada and USA. This stunning meteor was spotted over Spain on Feb. 18, at 5:42 local time (4:42 universal time) and was produced by a fragment from an asteroid that hit the atmosphere at about 100000 km/h over the provinces of Albacete, Murcia and Alicante: A large, green-turquoise object with an unusually long tail streaked across the skies of British Columbia’s Lower Mainland on Sunday evening, February 18, 2018, around 8:50 p.m. The meteor was witnessed by Metro from the TransCanada Highway near Chilliwack, to the northwest and seemingly heading northward, and as far away as Victoria, B.C. and Seattle. And all agreed it was an unusual sight much larger than a typical meteor. via Metro #science #scienceporn #extremeweather #tribulation #planetx #twosuns #fakesun #weather #weatheranomalies #survive #poleshift #earth #earthwobble #pinkskies #magentaskies #geoengineering #chemtrails #haarp #forbiddenknowledge #earthquake #volcanoes #wildfires #flashfloods #landslides #endtimes #lastdays #skywatcher

In the Extreme Weather Project, we learned that #wildfires are large, destructive fires usually caused by humans that burn a lot of land. You should go far away if there is a wildfire around. 🔥 #projectday #tvtc #intensiveenglishprogram

#Flooding and #wildfires were the two most destructive natural hazards of 2017, according to CoreLogic’s annual Natural Hazard Risk Summary and Analysis. The data found that flood damage from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma resulted in an estimated $69 to $105 billion in residential and commercial damage.

read the full article on watchers.news The eruption started at 01:53 UTC (08:53 local time) and lasted 4 minutes and 51 seconds, Sinabung Volcano Observatory reported. Their best estimate of the ash cloud top at 02:13 UTC was 7.4 km (23 872 feet) above sea level. The observatory noted that the ash cloud is drifting to the east and southeast, adding that its top may be higher than what can be clearly observed from the ground. The Aviation Color Code was raised from Orange to Red. "Pyroclastic flow is observed through the ESE slope to a distance of 3.5 km [2.1 miles] from the summit and through the south slope to a distance of 4.9 km [3 miles] from the summit," they said. Major ashfall was reported around the volcano and visibility was down to only 5 to 10 meters (16 - 32 feet). #science #scienceporn #extremeweather #tribulation #planetx #twosuns #fakesun #weather #weatheranomalies #survive #poleshift #earth #earthwobble #pinkskies #magentaskies #geoengineering #chemtrails #haarp #forbiddenknowledge #earthquake #volcanoes #wildfires #flashfloods #landslides #endtimes #lastdays#skywatcher

You were exceedingly beautiful, and succeeded to royalty. Your fame went out among the nations because of your beauty, for it was perfect through My splendor which I had bestowed on you,” says the Lord God. Ezekiel 16 :13-14. One of my favorite passages ever is Ezekiel 16 :3-14. It shows God's tender love and mercy and goodness towards his people. I pray we all get to experience it in deeper ways these week, because it is perfection. God 😍😍😍😍 3rd Edition of Wildfires is coming up again soon.

https://watchers.news/2018/02/18/powerful-arctic-cold-blast-to-hit-europe/ Recent Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) event above the North Pole is about to channel in very cold Arctic air into large parts of Europe starting early next week. Very cold weather could extend into early March. "Global models are trending into a powerful blocking pattern developing across northern Europe, resulting in a channel for significant cold air advection from the Arctics and Russia towards Europe," SWE meteorologists warned. "Some models are pushing the very cold weather well W-SW towards western and SW Europe as well, so basically a large part of Europe will be affected by the SSW." #science #scienceporn #extremeweather #tribulation #planetx #twosuns #fakesun #weather #weatheranomalies #survive #poleshift #earth #earthwobble #pinkskies #magentaskies #geoengineering #chemtrails #haarp #forbiddenknowledge #earthquake #volcanoes #wildfires #flashfloods #landslides #endtimes #lastdays #extremecold

The largest and most dangerous volcano in the United States is suddenly experiencing dozens of small earthquakes, most only minutes apart, and experts are suddenly getting concerned that the Yellowstone Super-Volcano may be heading toward an eruption. It is UNDER STRAIN, they say! Yellowstone has been hit by 12 small earthquakes today. All of today’s earthquakes struck near Maple Creek and measured 2.9 or less in magnitude. While all the quakes were relatively small, it does point to an increasingly volatile geological landscape at the park. 46 earthquakes have been measured since February 12, 2018 at this exact same spot! read the full article on strangesounds.org #science #scienceporn #extremeweather #tribulation #planetx #twosuns #fakesun #weather #weatheranomalies #survive #poleshift #earth #earthwobble #pinkskies #magentaskies #geoengineering #chemtrails #haarp #forbiddenknowledge #earthquake #volcanoes #wildfires #flashfloods #landslides #endtimes #lastdays#skywatcher

Yesterday I took a Medicine Walk through Sugarloaf State Park, a place near and dear to my heart that was ravaged by the recent wildfires. As I meandered through the lush green valleys and hilltops, along running creeks and butterflies galore, I sat next to a Majestic Madrone that was blackened by the fires and I asked her “How? Why?”. She answered with one word: “Love”. Love is why she persists after the flames overtook her. Her bark was blackened yet her core remains strong and beautiful. Love is why she goes on. Life is love. All beings on this planet are fueled by love. Struggle and pain are not scarce, but love is why we keep fighting on.
