SOTT Earth Changes Summary - January 2021: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secsjan21
Winters are becoming harsher and lengthier, impacting basic infrastructure and crops around the world. It's clear that we are not properly prepared for the coming ice age.

The most impactful winter snowstorm in the US so far caused a rapid decrease in temperature and dumped snow from the Midwest to the Northeast, affecting hundreds of millions. More than half the US was covered in snow and some cities received up to 19 inches. The US is seeing winter storm after winter storm with no relief.

Iowa got hit by a new record snowfall this month with 19 inches dumped in Des Moines, the snowiest January for the last 130 years. Extreme snowfall also buried Texas and the Mississippi Valley, leaving 150,000 people in the dark.

15 inches of rain, floods, up to 100 inches of snow, mudslides, a massive landslide, and wildfires hit California. Again, extreme weather is disrupting the lives of millions of Californians contributing to a 'mass exodus' from the state.

Europe and Asia also experienced one of their most intense winters in recent years, with temperatures in some areas dropping as low as -46.2 degrees Celsius.

Storm Filomena hit Spain this month, producing the coldest night for at least 20 years when the temperature plunged to -25C in Molina de Aragón, and Teruel, and a record snowfall since 1971 killed half a million trees in Madrid. All this was accompanied by a supercell storm with winds of 150 km/h in Lleida, flash floods in the south, and a M4.4 earthquake in Granada. Two meteor fireballs were also recorded over Galicia and Granada.

Siberia again broke the global cold temperature record this month, with -58°C at one locality, meanwhile, Mongolia faced one of the most extreme winters on record with temperatures as low as -50 C.

South Korea got hit by the season's harshest weather as a cold wave with heavy snow and strong winds brought traffic to a stop and grounded planes. The temperature in Seoul dropped to -16.1 C, with a wind chill of -25.3 C.

Many meteor fireballs were witnessed or recorded during the day this month, while a small meteorite fell on a house in Indonesia. A sign of increased cometary activity?

Heavy rains and floods continued to hit east and southeast Asia, with millions affected. The worst flood in half a century hit Malaysia prompting the evacuation of 50,000 people, while Chennai, India recorded the highest rainfall for a January day since 1915.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - December 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secsdec20
2020 ended with some amazing Earth Changes events, including a huge bolide that detonated above western China in late December. The largest meteor fireball event of the year, there hasn't been as spectacular an atmospheric event (caught on camera anyway) since the Chelyabinsk meteor of 2013. Additionally, there were many other meteor fireball sightings globally last month, including two seen from the US state of Idaho.

Deluges across Southeast Asia last month included nonstop downpours in Vietnam that resulted in severe flooding and killed some 280 people, with dozens more reported missing. Central Philipines is another area that has been hit by nonstop rain, and since October. Meanwhile, floodwaters in western Indonesia reached as high as 5 meters, causing widespread damage. Heavy rains and extreme flooding also hit Brazil for the second month in a row. Authorities there confirmed that at least 700 died just in Rio de Janeiro - and within one week.

Elsewhere a mammoth 700 meter-wide "quick clay slide" in Ask, Norway destroyed 30 houses, injured at least 10 people, and left 21 missing. At least 1,000 residents were evacuated from the area. This was the second such event reported this year in Norway and the largest in the area so far. The first one took place in June and ran more than 600 meters along the shore and 150 meters inland.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - November 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secs november 2020
Brace yourselves for a bumpy ride! It seems that nature has a lot to say and she's not holding back. If October was loaded with Extreme Weather, November went on better.

Eta, the biggest storm of a record-breaking hurricane season, devastated Central America, parts of the Caribbean, and hit parts of southeast Mexico, and the US with heavy rain and floods.

In Central America, the crops and shelters people used when they worked the land were gone without a trace. In the worst-hit countries of Nicaragua, Honduras, and Guatemala, 90 people died and 113 are still missing, with 210,000 evacuated from their homes.

Even as the region reeled from the devastation caused by Hurricane Eta, hurricane Iota arrived, unleashing torrential floods, flipping roofs onto streets, and killing at least nine people across Central America and the Caribbean. About 100,000 Nicaraguans and Hondurans were evacuated from their homes.

Brazil also took a significant hit this month, with unprecedented floods, record cold temperatures, hailstorms and a streak of meteor fireballs. Leading to significant crop losses, and infrastructure damage.

On the other side of the globe, heavy rains triggered by Storm Etau caused landslides and severe flooding in the central provinces of Vietnam. Since the previous month, the region was hit by torrential rains, widespread flooding, and landslides caused by one storm after another. At least 235 people were killed or are missing, and thousands of houses have been flooded.

Another major storm, typhoon Goni, brought devastating winds and rain to the Philippines, affecting more than 19 million with floods and landslides. In addition, the northeast region was pummeled again by another storm that left at least 13 people dead, 15 missing, and 200,000 evacuated. 1.9 million households were without power in Metro Manila and nearby provinces. Along with the sheets of rain, a magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck the 2nd largest Philippine island of Mindanao, with no casualties or damage reported.

Over the past few years of tracking these events, it is clear that precipitation around the world had increased dramatically in that time. If temperatures in the upper layers of the atmosphere continue to drop, this amount of water may soon translate into truly massive snowfalls, causing even more damage to crops, cattle and essential infrastructure.

Speaking of the white stuff, cold and snow records continued to be broken this month in parts of the US, Canada, China, Russia and the Middle East. Increasingly cold temperatures are having a significant impact on millions of people around the world, and we must ask: are we actually already experiencing the first signs of a new ice age? If so, we may all pay a heavy price for the distraction of the "invisible enemy" that grabbed the headlines for most of this year

Meteor/fireballs put on another spectacular show this month. It seems reasonable to assume that the undeniable increase in these space rocks in our skies and the chaos in the domain of human affairs, is not a coincidence. Maybe we should start paying attention to "cosmic intentions" rather than the machinations of our petty tyrant political leaders.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - October 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

SECSoct2020
Record early snow, record cold, huge hail, raging wildfires, deadly floods, droughts, powerful volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, amazing meteor fireballs... you name it, October 2020 had it all.

It's no exaggeration to say that we found this month to be the most extreme yet, weather-wise, in 2020. We advise everyone to pay attention to these events and prepare accordingly. As socio-political chaos increases, the environment responds accordingly. The more the elites squeeze the people, the more the people suffer, the more severe the weather and seismic activity becomes.

This was the coldest October ever recorded for the US, while many early snow records were broken around the world. Record-breaking snowfall blanketed US states from Montana to New Mexico, and record cold temperatures were shattered in parts of the West and Midwest US.

Lyman, Wyoming broke all cold records with -35° C; Potomac, Montana reached -33.9°C; and Boise, Idaho reached -13°C, breaking the old record of -8°C in 1878... and we're only in the second month of autumn.

"Tree carnage" was reported in Oklahoma City after a powerful ice storm. Vegetation and power lines collapsed, leaving up to 300,000 people without power.

British Columbia, Canada was blanketed with snowfall that broke a 120-year-old record, while 80% of Russia was covered, to one extent or another, in the white stuff.

Dig out your winter woollies, because if these trends continue, this winter could be a doozie!

Strangely enough, and possibly linked, for the first time in recorded history, the Arctic Ocean had not begun to freeze this October, and the Greenland ice season stopped a month early. No, that does not mean "global warming lives!" Rather, it's caused by changing ocean currents and increasing volcanic activity; both symptoms of the Solar Minimum Earth is currently going through.

Corporate media is trying to focus on some warm "spots" around the world, or to normalize what seems to be the beginning of a mini-ice age, while "globalist" types plan an economic, political, and social "reset", using 'The Covid' as cover.

Compounding the dystopian reality we entered in 2020, crop damage caused by extreme weather has also become 'the new normal' around the world, putting food security in serious jeopardy.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - September 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secssep20
Extended winter, widespread floods, raging wildfires, damaged crops, zombie tropical storms and record hurricane downfalls for September.

Excessive monsoon rains continued breaking records, affecting millions of people across South and East Asia. September used to bring clear weather with less chance of rain and more pleasant temperatures... but we are seeing quite the opposite: heavy floods, cold and unseasonable snow.

Subtropical storm Alpha, which barreled along the Portuguese coast and through some parts of Spain, was the first event of its kind to be registered since weather records began. Entire beaches were consumed by rapid rises in sea levels, coastal areas got heavy floods and winds of up to 100km/h were registered in some inland locations.

Over 100 were rescued and 500,000 residents were left without power as Hurricane Sally brought down power lines in parts of Florida and Alabama. Insurance companies have put the costs of damage in the Gulf Coast region between $1 billion and $3 billion. And while the Gulf Coast was still recovering from Sally, tropical storm Beta caused flash flooding in the coasts of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.

If hurricane Delta had hit the US Gulf Coast, this hurricane season would break the record for the most land falling named systems in the US in a single year, surpassing the historic 2005 season, which had seven.

In Asia, tropical Storm Noul caused widespread damage in Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and Thailand, thousands were displaced and at least 10 died.

And Istanbul, Turkey got a destructive combo this month with severe hailstorm, heavy rains, a waterspout and flash floods.

Winter is becoming the 'new normal'. Autumn in the Northern hemisphere and Spring in the southern are giving way to colder temperatures and unseasonable snow.

September has left fresh snow in the Dolomites, Pyrenees and up in Scandinavia; early snow in Russia, and China, as well as in the US and Canada. And late snowfalls in Australia and New Zealand. Snow has been falling in areas where it's not usually seen.

Many counties around the world reported massive crop losses from floods, hail, snow and even volcano ashes this month. Governments are paying too much attention to an imaginary enemy not seeing the elephant wreaking havoc in the room.

Beached whales and dolphins, as well as mass dead birds continue to increase, something that could point out to a magnetic pole shift and waning magnetosphere, another consequence of the solar minimum.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - August 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secsaugust20
Last month, more than 1.5 million acres burned in 9 days in California, forcing the evacuation of more than 100,000 people. The fires were caused by unusual intense 'dry-lightning storms', which focused on the San Francisco Bay area in a short time period - an event comprising around 11 percent of the average annual lightning activity for the entire state...

No, it's not 'man-made global warming', as the media claims, nor is it 'elite-made weather', as alternative media claims. The climate globally is 'going wonky' in part because the planet's very atmosphere is changing.

Extreme weather has only worsened the exodus of people from California over the last decade. About five million Californians have left the state for a net population loss of more than one million people. Colorado was also hit last month by the largest wildfire in the state's history. The Pine Gulch fire has burned 139,006 acres and left ranchers with little-to-no grazing for cattle and worried about long-term impacts.

In Algeria, over 1,200 fires have devoured almost 9,000 hectares of forests. The North African country has experienced more frequent forest fires in recent years but the causes remain unclear. Negligence? Coal-traffickers? Increased lightning strikes? Who knows, but the fact is something unusual is going on there too.

Sheets of rain, typically resulting heavy flooding, landslides and huge hailstones continued destroying houses, basic infrastructure and crops around the world in August, impacting the lives of dozens of millions of people. In South Asia alone, an estimated 17.5 million people suffered the consequences of record-breaking monsoon floods. Nearly 700 died and thousands have been displaced. China, Bangladesh and India continue to be the most affected.

South Korea has suffered from unusually heavy downpours for over 2 months now, marking the country's longest and worst-ever monsoon season. Now, the strongest typhoon of the year is on its way to the Korean peninsula, so the deluge is unlikely to abate anytime soon.

Snow in Australia, southern Brazil and South Africa is normal this time of year - it's still winter there (barely), but what are we to make of August snowfalls in Yunnan, China; Dagestan, Russia; the Alps and Pyrenees in Europe? A foretaste perhaps of a cold northern winter to come.

Given the amount of water falling out of the sky the world over, if the unprecedented slowdown in the North Atlantic Gulf Stream holds, we may soon be entering an extended winter.

July 2020 saw record volumes of rainfall, killing hundreds of people, leaving millions displaced or homeless, and destroying crops around the world.

Asia seemed to get the worst of it, with extreme monsoon rain and consequential flooding killing hundreds of people in China, Japan, South Korea, Nepal, Bangladesh and India. China in particular continues to battle its worst flooding in decades as the water level of 433 rivers remains above the flood-control line, with 33 of them reaching record highs.

Heavy rain and floods have ravaged Assam, India, since May, affecting 2 to 3 million people across 27 districts, and claiming the lives of more than 100 people and destroying crops.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - June 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secsjune2020
Sheets of rain, floods and hail left a path of destruction all over the world, and the northern hemisphere still got snow in June.

The unbelievable amount of precipitation during the past months can be explained with the increasing amount of charged particles in upper layers of the atmosphere.

When meteors and meteorites pass through our lower atmosphere, or when our planet goes trough a comet dust stream, charged particles accumulate between the ionosphere and the surface of the earth causing storms to intensify, clouds to grow and more rain to fall. Wildfires and volcanic eruptions, for example, also contribute to this accumulation of particles.

At the same time, rain can conduct the accumulated electrical charge of the ionosphere to the ground, which increases the occurrence of other electrical phenomena, as tornadoes, hurricanes and plasma formations.

The accumulation of charged aerosols and increasingly colder temperatures in upper layers of the atmosphere - caused by the current solar minimum - can also be responsible of the increasing amount of hail and unseasonable snow around the world.

Charged particles influence weather much more than has been appreciated.

Heavy rain and raging floods took the life of hundreds and affected millions in south China, and destroyed 1,470 houses and 3 bridges in Gorontalo Province, Indonesia. Heavy floods also hit Assam, India leaving 16 dead and over 253,000 affected.

While Romania got its second coldest day in June, Montana got more than 1 foot of snow and southeast Wyoming got 6 inches... just at the beginning of summer.

Siberia got a share of extreme weather this month, from tornadoes to floods and extreme temperature swings.

A 7.5-magnitude earthquake rattled large swaths of southern and central Mexico, killing at least five people. No major damage was reported.

Locusts continued to ravage Africa, India, Brazil, Argentina and the Middle East, with no sign that they'll be gone soon.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - May 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

SECS may 20
As the Sun enters a 'lockdown' period, Earth is charging up and responding accordingly. Lately, even mainstream science reports acknowledge this solar minimum could bring freezing weather, famine, increased earthquakes, and catastrophic volcanic eruptions... and the latest displays of Earth Changes from May 2020 are pointing to exactly that.

But decreased solar activity does not account for all that is going on. The Sun is quiet, yes, yet the planet is being super-charged. So whatever is 'grounding' the Sun has set powerful currents running through Earth. The Sun actually unleashed its solar flare since 2017 on May 29. Something that can get more dangerous for satellites and power grids if our magnetosphere continues to weaken.

Funnily enough, the eruption of intense rioting in the USA over the killing of George Floyd coincided with this solar flare... a human-cosmic connection?

Also last month, swathes of the northern hemisphere returned to winter conditions - just one month out from summer, and despite a record-warm in much of Europe, Russia and Northern America. In the southern hemisphere, meanwhile, early snow and cold records were broken despite winter having not yet 'officially' begun.

Absurd volumes of water continue falling out of the sky the world over, with devastating flash-floods and landslides hitting Kenya, India, Oman and Central America last month - hundreds of people were killed and thousands displaced.

India, Pakistan and East Africa suffered their worst locust plagues in decades, causing major crop failures, which, combined with the unnecessary food losses caused by the lockdown, suggests we might be looking at serious food shortages in the near-future.

Atmospheric electrical activity continues to amaze - and kill lots of people and animals, unfortunately. Last month, Washington DC alone registered over 87,000 lightning strikes in a single day... that is nearly 23 times its annual average!

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - April 2020: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

April 2020 brought us some chilly Earth Changes surprises, from record snow in parts of the US and Europe, to huge hail in Asia and the Middle East.
secs4202
An arctic system blasted Canada, the Midwest, Northeast and Southern US, causing power outages in Manitoba, and Maine, leaving hundreds of thousands without power. Snow records were broken in Colorado (30 inches), South Dakota (15 inches), and Iowa (11 inches).

Snow also fell in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, for the first time in 26 years... in spring!

Global food production not only has been disrupted by the economy-killing plandemic, severe cold and frost also destroyed crops across Europe and the US.

Hail also got nasty around the globe this month, killing 5 people, ravaging crops, and damaging 6,000 homes in Vietnam. Hailstorms also left 4,2000 people homeless in Tripura, India, and covered in white parts of Saudi Arabia, Iran, and China... with flooding added to the mix as it melted.

Severe storms, hail, tornadoes, and strong winds ripped through parts of the Midwest and South US, causing damage to many homes, especially in Indiana and Arkansas.

While all this water got dumped around the world, the Czech Republic is facing the worst drought in 500 years.
