Heavy rain shatters Los Angeles County rainfall records

Heavy rain that pounded the Southland overnight shattered rainfall records across Los Angeles County and triggered a mudslide in Sherman Oaks that damaged at least one home.

A low-pressure system that originated in the Gulf of Alaska dumped half an inch to nearly 3 inches of rain across Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning, said Kristen Stewart, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

Heavy rain was falling across Sherman Oaks shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday when Los Angeles Fire Department crews responded to reports of flooding at a home in the 15500 block of Hamner Drive.

When crews arrived, they discovered a debris flow that had damaged the property, said Nicholas Prange, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The extent of the damage to the home was not immediately clear. No one was injured in the debris flow.

The persistent rain also brought enough moisture to rewrite the record books in some areas of Los Angeles County, Stewart said.

Los Angeles International Airport received 1.73 inches of rain Sunday, shattering the record for the day of 0.82 inches set in 2005. A record of 1.51 inches of rain fell in downtown Los Angeles, breaking the prior record of 1.11 inches set in 1975.

The Northern Hemisphere is having one of its snowiest winters since records began in 1979

snow
We've long been told that snow will soon be a thing of the past...

In 2013, the Guardian ran with the story that the Arctic would be "ice-free by 2015" due to a catastrophic methane-induced warming "pulse" and a lack of snowfall and ice.

Ten years ago, the same rag claimed that Greenland was going to "collapse" within 10 years. And yet, according to NASA, its largest glacier, the Jacobshavn, has been growing for the past three years, and in Jan, 2020 the island actually set a new all-time record low temperature.

Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: Earthquake and global cooling cycles, what's next to 2024

A man looks at damages at the Basilica of the Heart of Jesus, following an earthquake in Zagreb
As the largest earthquake to hit Croatia in 140 years occurred, our Earth is beginning to enter an electromagnetic anomaly zone during the next four years as the gas giant planets form a perfect square in one quadrant of the solar system that hasn't been seen since 575AD. CO2 levels globally set to decrease this year as the world ceases business, and because if the decline in solar activity on a 400 year cycle the planet will cool and the IPCC will be there to take credit for a natural cycle. EU survey says 60%+ want to end short haul domestic flights indefinitely.

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.
