    There seems to be 2 major disasters in October 2011...The huge Bangkok Floods worst in 50 years and possibly the worst and todays Turkey's 7.2 magnitude earthquake that may kill 1,000 people. There is a possible huge volcanic eruption in the coming one to three months.

    Oct. 23 (Bloomberg) -- An earthquake in Turkey’s eastern province of Van may have killed as many as 1,000 people, collapsing apartment buildings and damaging 4,000 homes, government officials said.

    Turkey’s state-run TRT television said that 28 people have so far been confirmed dead. Officials from the Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute said between 500 and 1,000 people may have died.

    The magnitude 7.2-earthquake struck in the province of Van by the Iranian border at 1:41 p.m. local time and was followed by more than 40 aftershocks, the observatory at Bogazici University in Istanbul said on its website. It was the province’s biggest tremor since 1976 and was 5 kilometers (3 miles) below the surface, it said.

    Bangkok was preparing for more flooding on Sunday after the Thai prime minister warned that authorities were racing against time to protect the city. "Water is coming from different places, and headed in the same direction. We're trying to build walls but there will be some impact on Bangkok," Yingluck Shinawatra said.

    Thailand has had its worst floods for half a century after months of unusually heavy rainfall, with 356 people killed since late July and more than 110,000 forced to move to shelters. About 2.5 million people have been affected, with water covering an area the size of Kuwait.

    The disaster has been a tough start for the prime minister, a political novice elected in a bitter contest this summer. Opponents have accused the government of indecision and mismanagement.

    Yingluck urged residents to move possessions at least a metre above the ground. In some parts of the city, water levels have already reached double that height.

    On Saturday she said it could be six weeks before the waters subside. The situation is likely to be complicated by high tides due next weekend.

    The floods first hit northern and central areas of the country, but torrents of water are now draining south, threatening the capital.

    Yingluck has already ordered the opening of the city's floodgates in the hope that it would allow the waters to drain away through urban canals and into the sea. Officials feared that otherwise the defences would be overwhelmed.

    Critics say the government failed to respond quickly enough to the flooding in the provinces.

    Many have also complained about vague, confusing or contradictory information, which has left them uncertain about what to do. The government's supporters have said it is wary of panicking residents.

    The Chao Phraya river reached its highest level for seven years on Saturday, but justice minister Pracha Promnok, who is heading the flood response team, said people should not worry too much because the overflow had been drained off.

    He added that water in Klong Prapa, a canal that had been overflowing, was receding, and that water was also draining through other channels as planned.

    Other reports suggested water levels continued to rise in parts of the canal.

    Sean Boonpracong, the international spokesman for the flood response team, said food supply centres in or just outside Bangkok, meant to aid other parts of the country, had been hit by rising waters.

    With residents anxious about supplies, many supermarkets in the capital have sold out of tinned food, instant noodles, bottled water and other essentials. Others began rationing goods.

    Despite flooding in the Don Muang area, the city's second airport there has now become an evacuation base and a minister said it would also be used to supply food and water to residents.

    Elsewhere in Bangkok, troops worked to fortify two key industrial zones, hoping to contain the economic damage wreaked by the disaster. According to the MCOT news site, the Thai chamber of commerce estimates that the floods have already cost the economy 400bn baht (£8bn). That would rise by another 120bn baht a month if business areas were flooded.

    The governor of the central bank has said growth in south-east Asia's second largest economy could fall to 3% or less this year, rather than the 4.1% previously forecast. The finance minister has said it could even drop below 2%.

    Seven industrial estates in Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi and Ayutthaya provinces have already halted production, with Toyota, Honda, Canon and Nikon among the companies affected. At least 600,000 people are unemployed due to the flooding. The labour ministry said that each would receive 2,000 baht.

    The public health minister said he had ordered hospitals in areas of the city prone to flooding to evacuate critically ill patients to unaffected provinces.


    May God bless Thailand and Turkey. Amen.
    Ask and You shall receive,
    Seek and You shall find,
    Knock and the door will be open unto You.

    Looks like October and on into November and December is also the period of unprecedented record heavy earliest snowfall in North America. I believe more and worse ones are on the way as winter is still early. Millions will be affected by no electric power.

    Monster snow storm smacks Northeast; power could be out for days
    The News - Current Events
    October 30, 2011

    Millions of people from Maine to Maryland were without power as an unseasonably early nor'easter dumped heavy, wet snow over the weekend on a region more used to gaping at leaves in October than shoveling snow.
    The snow was due to stop falling in New England late Sunday, but Halloween will likely come and go before many of the more than 3 million without electricity see it restored, officials warned. Several referred to the combination of the storm's early arrival and its ferocity as historic, yet another unwelcome superlative for weather-weary Northeasterners.

    "You had this storm, you had Hurricane Irene, you had the flooding last spring and you had the nasty storms last winter," Tom Jacobsen said Sunday while getting coffee at a convenience store in Hamilton Township, N.J.

    "I'm starting to think we really ticked off Mother Nature somehow because we've been getting spanked by her for about a year now."

    The storm smashed record snowfall totals for October and worsened as it moved north. Communities in western Massachusetts were among the hardest hit. Snowfall totals topped 27 inches in Plainfield, and nearby Windsor had gotten 26 inches by early Sunday. It was blamed for at least three deaths, and states of emergency were declared in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and parts of New York.



    May God Blessed the weather.

    How does that relate to your previous warnings of global warming?




    Oh yeah, I remember now!

    If it gets colder than normal, its a sign that the earth is trying to cool itself down! Yeah, that's the ticket ...
    • Skepticism is the antiseptic of the mind.
    • Remember why we debate. We have nothing to lose but the errors we hold. Who but a stubborn fool would hold to errors once they have been exposed?

    We are currently in the La Nina period which is relatively cool in many areas of the world. Next year will likely be the El Nino period which will be warmer than usual in many areas of the world.

    I also believe in energy equilibrium or another term energy transfer; what is colder on one side of the earth such, the other side of the earth will be warmer. For example, it was record heat and drought in Texas this summer, it is record snowfall in New York. If it is record cold in the northern Hemisphere then it is likely to be record warm in the southern Hemisphere. This is also one of my "tools" in weather prediction.

    God seems to say in Genesis 8 that despite any anomality in the weather, be it global warming or not there will be cold and heat, winter and summer as usual:

    22 “While the earth remains,
    Seedtime and harvest,
    Cold and heat,
    Winter and summer,
    And day and night
    Shall not cease.”


    Don't you know that skeptics are now going over to the global warming camp?:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A prominent physicist and skeptic of global warming spent two years trying to find out if mainstream climate scientists were wrong. In the end, he determined they were right: Temperatures really are rising rapidly.

    The study of the world's surface temperatures by Richard Muller was partially bankrolled by a foundation connected to global warming deniers. He pursued long-held skeptic theories in analyzing the data. He was spurred to action because of "Climategate," a British scandal involving hacked emails of scientists.

    Yet he found that the land is 1.6 degrees warmer than in the 1950s. Those numbers from Muller, who works at the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, match those by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA.

    He said he went even further back, studying readings from Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. His ultimate finding of a warming world, to be presented at a conference Monday, is no different from what mainstream climate scientists have been saying for decades.


    May God bless the weather.

    There is currently an unprecedented largestorm affecting Alaska and inching towards the Bering Sea and the Russian coast. It is predicted to caused havoc and some destruction with minimal loss of life. I would like to put into record as one of the major disaster of November 2011 due to its unprecedented scale.

    The News - Natural Disasters
    November 09, 2011

    One of the strongest storms to hit western Alaska in nearly 40 years battered coastal communities Wednesday with snow and hurricane-force winds, knocking out power, ripping up roofs and forcing some residents to board up their windows and seek higher ground.

    As the storm churned the Bering Sea, residents and emergency responders braced for a possible surge of sea water into already soaked villages along the coast.

    "People out there are used to extreme weather, but this is not a normal storm," said Jeremy Zidek, spokesman for the state's emergency management agency. "This is of a magnitude that can be a storm of record, extremely dangerous, and the state is treating it as such."


    May God Bless the weather. Amen.

    November 2011 seems rather quiet with few devastating disasters except for the peak of Bangkok's flood and the Alaskan storm. This is rather strange for the month of November in past records. This to me doesn't herald well for December 2011.

    BTW, 2011 is set to be the 10th warmest tear on record despite the cooing La Nina:

    Phillipines Flood

    The flash flood that killed more than 450 with 200 reported missing in the Phillipines seems to be the first major disaster of December 2011. The death toll is expected to rise. Thousands will be affected.
