Spring floods kill at least 11 in Iran

flood
Spring floods have caused damages to many urban and rural areas in several provinces of Iran, mainly in the southern parts of the country, and have killed as least eleven people as of Monday, as the rescue and relief operations are underway in the affected regions.

Heavy rainfalls over the past days have created flash floods and swollen rivers in several Iranian provinces, including Fars, Bushehr, Hormozgan, Kerman and Sistan and Baluchestan in the southern parts of the country.

Floods have also inundated the residential areas in the northern province of Gilan, Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province in the west, the central province of Qom, and the northern province of Golestan.

Antarctica's coldest March temperature on record - a 'global warming' destroying -75.3℃/-103.5℉

arctic
The MSM has a blatant warm bias, that's been clear for years...

A myriad of news outlets were all-too-happy to run with the Antarctic Peninsula's record warm temperature last month, painting it as further evidence of the coming climate catastrophe (despite the peninsula actually being located closer to Argentina than the South Pole, and the event officially going down as a foehn). But where are those same rags now? Where is their balance? Their credibility? Or is informing the public not the goal anymore, is their mission merely to propagandize...?

Last Friday, Antarctica set its coldest EVER March temperature — somehow, in what we're to believe is a linearly warming world on the brink of "overheating", the world's southernmost continent is currently the coldest its ever been for the time of year.

The Vostok Station clocked a bone-chilling -75.3C (-103.54F) on Friday morning, March 20, as spotted by @TempGlobal on Twitter:

At least 12 people are feared dead after a landslip in the Tambul-Nebilyer district in Papua New Guinea's Western Highlands Province.
Ten bodies have been recovered from a landslide which buried 12 people in Papua New Guinea's Western Highlands.

The weekend landslide in Tendepo ward of Tambul-Nebilyer district came amid a bout of heavy rain

District administrator Phillip Talpa said an excavator was quickly sent to the area with help from police and the local community.

"They were able to dig out 10 bodies. Two are still believed to be buried under ground. The excavator is already on site, digging a few sites that they believe the bodies are hidden under."

Mr Talpa said that with ongoing rain, there was a high risk of more landslides occurring in the area's hilly surrounds in coming days.

Croatia's capital Zagreb rocked by 5.3M earthquake: Many buildings damaged - Strongest to hit city in 140 years

A man looks at damages at the Basilica of the Heart of Jesus, following an earthquake in Zagreb
The Croatian capital was awoken this Sunday morning by a huge earthquake measuring 5.3 on the Richter scale.

At 6.23 this morning Zagreb was rocked as the earthquake, with an epicentre seven kilometres north of the city and at a depth of ten kilometres caused havoc. Parts of the capital were left without electricity and the facades of buildings fell onto the fortunately empty streets. There is no news of any injuries or fatalities, however material damage has been reported.




Comment: Among the older buildings that were badly damaged were churches, including Zagreb's cathedral, the tallest building in Croatia - and which is dedicated to the Assumption of Mary, like Notre Dame in Paris. Part of one of its two towers broke off during the quake:



Croatia's PM Andrej Plenkovic has since described this as "the strongest quake to hit Zagreb in 140 years."

RT reports that local authorities are urging citizens to get out of their homes and check on the elderly... while maintaining social distancing:
Strong quakes have struck Croatia's capital Zagreb, damaging buildings downtown, including the city's main historic cathedral. Officials urged people to leave home but keep social distancing amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Zagreb's head of emergency services, Pavle Kalinic, urged people to leave their homes. "Get out of the houses and help your older neighbors," he said.

The Interior Ministry asked people who had fled their homes to maintain a "necessary distance" to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 disease, and to wear face masks if possible.
Welcome to full-blown Idiocracy.

We're anticipating many more earthquakes in the months ahead. When you mess with the human population's normal routines, all that energy they normally express while going about their lives has to go somewhere, so it largely goes 'into the ground'.

Now we're going to see how humans really affect the environment; not by 'polluting it with CO2', but by the impact of their collective psychic energy. And, right now, the species is in a state of worry/terror/confusion...

In line with that, Salt Lake City, Utah, received its first-ever direct-hit earthquake a few days ago:
