Five fatalities caused by lightning at La Puntilla Beach in Santa Cruz del Norte, in the western province of Mayabeque, local media reported.

Due to the phenomenon, two adults and three children lost their lives and another child received injuries, according to Granma newspaper.

After being stabilized, the child was transferred to the Juan Manuel Márquez pediatric hospital in Havana, to receive specialized care.

According to the newspaper, competent authorities work on the identification of the victims, with the aim of making their names, ages and origin known.

This Caribbean island is one of the territories most affected by lightning in the world due to the great electrical activity that characterizes storms in this territory.

Eruption of Popocatépetl this afternoon
The level of activity of the volcano remains high, with frequent moderate to strong explosions, which often produce ash plumes of several kilometers height and eject lava bombs and blocks to up to approx. 1 km distance from the crater.

In its latest report a few hours ago, CENAPRED reported that during the most recent 24 hour interval, the volcano produced 162 exhalations (passive emissions of steam, gas and low amounts of ash), 13 explosions at 00:34, 01:00, 01:45 (image 1), 01:47, 02:08, 02:27, 02:33, 03: 20, 03:39, 05:56, 06:44, 08:10 and 08:27 local time, as well as 711 minutes of tremor.

Clearly, the flux of magma currently rising inside the volcano is elevated compared to the average of the pat years. This could calm down gradually again or increase further, something impossible to predict. The alert level remains unchanged at "Yellow Phase 2".

The massive shining figure was recorded soaring in a cloudy sky, changing direction but retaining its bizarre shape. It is unclear whether the filmed object is an energy source or a remarkable light refraction.

A strange and unique atmospheric phenomenon was caught on camera in Brazil. A video uploaded by a UFO hunter who goes under the name of Disclose Screen "the Greemreefar" shows a T-shaped shining object in the cloudy sky, which roughly resembles an angel in a long robe.
"It looks like light refraction but then again it looks like some type of energy source," the cameraman says on the video. "It's even got the harmonious appearance of an angel."
The T-shaped object remains in motion for a period of time, moving from one cloud to another, changing angle and direction.

In recent times sightings of STEVE and other atmospheric events appear to be increasing. See also: Electric universe theory provides rational, intelligible explanations for such atmospheric phenomena as ball lightning, plasma discharges, noctilucent clouds, lightning, hurricanes and tornadoes.

Chinese scientists now confirm that our world is entering a "Global Cooling" phase, which explains why the economy, and tension in the air seem to be ramping up. China and USA are the two largest corn producers on the planet and are both struggling with record low planting this year. The Grand Solar Minimum is now being drip fed to the public. Who is paying attention to China's string of pearls?

Climate Revolution is a 'Must Read' for understanding our Sun driven climate as we progress deeper into the new Eddy Grand Solar Minimum. Weather extremes leading to Global food scarcity and high food prices are here now, and this book describes the expected changes, how to survive & thrive during future challenging times with practical preparations.

Winter is Coming Cycles of Change Presentation: A comprehensive PDF slide presentation with accompanying MP3 narration of the slides by David DuByne, author of Climate Revolution. Over an hour of detailed explanation and documentation of the rapidly approaching periods of life-changing Cold we will soon experience.

3km exclusion zone after Mt Merapi spews lava in Indonesia

Indonesian authorities banned residents and trekkers from doing activities within 3 kilometers from the summit of Mount Merapi as the volcano located between Central Java and Yogyakarta provinces spewed hot lava on Wednesday morning.

Mount Merapi spewed the hot lava as far as 950 meters, heading to upstream of Gendol River in the two provinces' border area at 04:52 Jakarta time, Spokesperson of Indonesia's National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) Agus Wibowo said.

The hot lava emission from the Merapi crater lasted around 95 seconds was recorded to have maximum amplitude of 50 millimeters, he added.

The volcano that stands at 2,968 meters tall above the sea level has been showing significant escalation of volcanic activities in the last several days with 10 intense land tremors were recorded in various degrees on Saturday.


Volcano in Russian far east emits ash to 5 km

The Karymsky volcano
The Karymsky volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia's Far East emitted ash to an altitude of 5 km Wednesday, according to the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

"A moderate eruptive activity of the volcano continues and ash explosions of up to 6 km could occur at any time," it said in a statement, warning that it could affect low-flying aircraft.

The institute has attributed orange color code to the activity, which under the aviation color code map signifies that a volcano is exhibiting heightened unrest with an increased likelihood of eruption or that a volcanic eruption is underway with either minor ash emission or none at all.

As one of the most active volcanoes on the peninsula, the 1,486-meter-high Karymsky volcano is located 115 km north of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the administrative center of Kamchatka region.
