Italy's Stromboli volcano has exploded in front of holidaymakers, spewing an ash cloud high into the air and sending a river of lava into the sea.

It comes almost two months after a massive eruption killed a man and forced terrified tourists to dive into the sea.

The summit of Stromboli - one of the most active volcanoes in the world - had already been closed due to an increase in activity this summer, including smaller explosions this week.

Torrential rain triggered floods and landslides in Japan on Wednesday, killing at least two people and prompting authorities to order more than 900,000 people to leave their homes while another million were advised to move to safety.

More than twice the usual rainfall for the whole of August has fallen over parts of the southern island of Kyushu over the past 48 hours, washing away roads, causing rivers to burst their banks and forcing the suspension of train services.

One man was killed when his car was swept away in Saga prefecture, while another man in Fukuoka prefecture died after being dragged away by flood waters when he got out of his stalled car, NHK national broadcaster said.

A woman in Saga was found without signs of life - a term Japanese authorities use to describe people yet to be officially confirmed as dead - in her car after it fell into a waterway.

Another lake disappears in Mexico

Metzabok Lagoon in Mexico
Metzabok Lagoon by Mexico’s National Commission for Protected Nature Areas
A lake in the Metzabok lagoon system in the Lacandon Jungle of Chiapas is dry, with no known causes.

"Saturday night it appeared completely dry, but a week ago the community was monitoring it to take care of the species," said Armando Valenzuela, inhabitant of the area.

Some 150 residents collected fish and transferred them to other lakes, although some were used for family consumption.

Residents reported the phenomenon through photographs and videos posted on social networks.

There is nothing left in what used to be a large expanse of water and a place for tourism.

The main lake of the Tzibaná community maintains a good water level in order to continue carrying out the eco-tourism activities of which the village lives.

Comment: The National Water Commission of Mexico considers that most of the Lacandon jungle is in a "moderate" drought situation, but some areas whose waters usually feed the lagoons suffer from a "severe to extreme" drought according to El Periodico de Mexico, which may be a factor.

Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: VEI 5/6 Eruption - Blocking high N. Hemisphere mean exceptional cold early

Shiveluch volcano eruption

Largest eruption in more than a decade occurred in Russia on the Kamchatka Peninsula with Shiveluch pushing ash to 70,000+ feet. This will for sure have a regional cooling effect along the latitudes along 50-60N and at the same time the Canadian SIPS put out the long rage forecast for a blocking high that will deflect cold Arctic air all winter south over N. America, Asia, and Europe. This is it, the feedback loop is in full play. Coldest in two centuries on our door step as we step down further into the Grand Solar Minimum.

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 and how it will reduce global crop yields leading to a prolonged economic contraction.

Climate Revolution: 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.

Ice Age Farmer Report: Big Ag closes plants as grow zones shift - Tyson fire

Tyson fire disrupts markets, supply chain

Del Monte is closing US production plants (in WI, MN, and IL) and moving operations further South...or indoors! Likewise, Cargill sold off all assets in Ontario.

Tyson fire offlines 6% of US beef pipeline. As major components of modern agriculture are failing, the more significant realization is that these conglomerates have ALREADY GIVEN UP on the current grow zones and started preparing for the tougher growing seasons ahead.

Man critically injured during ferocious attack by 2 dogs in Philadelphia - caught on camera

Man, 57, tackled to ground, critically injured during dog attack in .

Man critically injured during dog attack
Police in Philadelphia say they were forced to fire their guns at two dogs that viciously attacked a 57-year-old man in order to save the victim's life.

Security video from a nearby market shows a 57-year-old man running for his life early Monday morning, before he is tackled to the ground by two dogs, a bullmastiff and a pit bull.
The man was bitten several times on his arms and legs and even dragged like a rag doll.

"He has three dog bites at this time to both arms and his one leg. They say the bites to his arm are very, very severe, down to the bone.
That's why officers actually applied a tourniquet because his arms were bleeding that heavily," said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.

Tropical Storm Ivo left two dead and communities across the country ravaged by floods, sinkholes, hailstorms and damaged infrastructure over the weekend.

The deaths, a minor in Ahome, Sinaloa, and an adult male in Monterrey, Nuevo León, were both caused by electrocution. The seven-year-old child was electrocuted when lightning struck as he touched a refrigerator.

Sinaloa Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel urged the federal government to send aid to victims in the affected municipalities of Guasave, Elota, Mocorito, El Rosario and Mazatlán, all in a state of emergency.


Strange 'jet sounds' heard in the skies of Iasi, Romania

On August 11, 2019, YouTube user 'Alexandru V. Diaconu' heard strange 'jet noises' in the skies of Iasi, Romania. He uploaded video footage of the event:
It's the second time today that these jet engine sounds are blasting. It is strange because the airport isn't near my location and the planes that fly here are always high enough to not make so much noise.

This time I happened to see some smoke and a new sound following the engine sounds. I am located in Iaşi, Romania and the last time I heard these jet sounds was a couple of years ago, I have a clip posted here from then [June 26, 2014] as well.

Comment: On April 20 of this year YouTuber user 'Dumitru Daniela' posted similar footage of strange noises she heard in the skies of Tulcea, Romania, about 300 km away from Iasi:
