Rice production in Bangladesh to fall as floods ravage farmland

The food shortage over the last few months hiked the coarse rice price in local markets by Tk18 a kg compared to the same period a year ago

The production of rice is expected to fall in the next cycle as around 600,000 hectares of Aman paddy fields have been inundated with floodwater.

According to a floods bulletin issued by the Department of Disaster Management on Monday, a total of 591,647 hectares of Aman paddy field in 32 districts have been affected.

Unofficial sources, however, put the total damage to crops including paddy far higher.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture, the average Aman paddy production in Bangladesh is around 2.5 tons per hectare. Therefore the country is expected to produce around 1.5 million tons less Aman paddy this season.

Mass stranding of 10 sperm whales in Sumatra, Indonesia; 4 die

A group of 10 sperm whales was stranded on Nov. 13 on a beach in Sumatra’s Aceh province.
Four sperm whales were reported to have died Tuesday following a mass stranding on a beach on the northwestern tip of Sumatra, Indonesia.

A group of 10 sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) was spotted on Ujong Kareung beach in Aceh province on Monday morning, according to WWF-Indonesia, which has been monitoring attempts to rescue the animals.

Officials from the Navy, fisheries ministry and local government deployed teams and worked with residents and NGOs to try to push and tow the stranded whales back out into deeper water.

Two of the whales were reportedly injured, while the others risked suffocation and organ failure from being stuck in shallow waters for too long, according to Arman, a veterinarian from the Center for Wildlife Studies at the Syiah Kuala University in Banda Aceh, the provincial capital.

Earthquake swarm hits Monterey County, California - Biggest a 4.6M, felt in San Francisco

A 4.7 magnitude earthquake and a series of smaller aftershocks shook Monterey County Monday, officials said.
A 4.6-magnitude earthquake rattled Monterey County on Monday and was felt more than 90 miles away in San Francisco, officials said.

The quake hit at 11:31 a.m. about 13 miles northeast of Gonzales, near Salinas, and was followed by nine smaller aftershocks, with the largest measuring magnitude 2.8, said Annemarie Baltay, a seismologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park.

There were no reports of injuries or damage.

Baltay said the quake occurred on the San Andreas Fault, close to an area where the Calaveras Fault branches off. The quake happened at a depth of about 4 miles.

Comment: The planet is going through another phase of earthquake activity:


Iran-Iraq border region hit with 7.2 magnitude earthquake, 400+ killed, deadliest quake of 2017 (UPDATE)

An earthquake of 7.2 magnitude has hit Iraq southeast of the city of As-Sulaymaniyah, according to US Geological Survey.


Comment: The quake was felt widely. ZeroHedge reports:
Eye witnesses recount:
"Terrible... Extremely horrible"

"The swaying was significant, I stood up and tried to get to a doorway and stumbled a little bit. It lasted nearly 5 minutes with the first 2 minutes being the strongest."

Moments after the quake strikes Erbil people are rushing into the streets...

Update: Nov. 13

New data provided by Tasnim News Agency now indicates that at least 211 people have been killed and over 2,500 injured in the earthquake in Iran, according to officials from Kermanshah province.

Electricity was cut off in several Iranian and Iraqi cities, and fears of aftershocks sent thousands of people in both countries out onto the streets and parks in cold weather. The Iranian seismological centre registered around 50 aftershocks and said more were expected. The head of Iranian Red Crescent said more than 70,000 people were in need of emergency shelter.

Update: Nov. 14

The death toll from the earthquake in western Iran has jumped to 407 people, with over 6,700 others injured, Iranian Press TV reports. Local officials said the toll was likely to rise as search and rescue teams reached remote areas. It is now the deadliest earthquake this year surpassing the tremor that struck Mexico City in September, which claimed the lives of 369 people.

Most people who died were in western Iran in Sarpol-e-Zahab, a town 15km (10 miles) from the border, and other parts of Kermanshah province. The town's main hospital was severely damaged, leaving it struggling to treat hundreds of wounded people, state TV reported.

Running water and electricity cut out in some cities, and after buildings collapsed people were forced to spend hours outdoors in parks or streets in cold weather. Many homes in the predominantly Kurdish mountainous area are made of mud bricks and are vulnerable in quakes as large as Sunday's. The UN said it was "ready to assist if required" in a statement from a spokesman for the secretary-general.

The quake hit at 21:18 local time (18:18 GMT) about 30km (19 miles) south of Darbandikhan, near the north-eastern border with Iran, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said. It's likely that it released strain created by the collision of two tectonic plates: the Arabia plate, which contains the Arabian Peninsula, Iraq, Syria, and Jordan, and the Eurasia plate, to which Iran belongs.

15,000 scientists deliver catastrophic "warning to humanity" over fate of our natural world

A new, dire "warning to humanity" about the dangers to all of us has been written by 15,000 scientists from around the world.

The message updates an original warning sent from the Union of Concerned Scientists that was backed by 1,700 signatures 25 years ago. But the experts say the picture is far, far worse than it was in 1992, and that almost all of the problems identified then have simply been exacerbated.

Mankind is still facing the existential threat of runaway consumption of limited resources by a rapidly growing population, they warn. And "scientists, media influencers and lay citizens" aren't doing enough to fight against it, according to the letter.

If the world doesn't act soon, there be catastrophic biodiversity loss and untold amounts of human misery, they warn.

Comment: Earth changes are presenting dire signs of our times. Many of these scientists have bought into the man-made global warning sham, but that doesn't mean that our situation is any less grave. It is unfortunate that there remains such massive disinformation and powerful vested interests surrounding a topic of such great importance. The interested reader may wish to check out Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection for an extensive analysis of the mechanisms at work and what it means for our planet and humanity.
