Event Update For 2017-06-17

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2017-06-17 - Flash fire kills 28-year-old man at 1:45 AM while he cooks food at apartment in Las Vegas (Nevada):

Quote: "The fire happened around 1:45 a.m. at the Northpointe Apartments in the area of Cheyenne Avenue and Rancho Drive. Firefighters forced their way into the home and found the man unresponsive with burns to his hands and face, according to Tim Szymanski, Las Vegas Fire & Rescue. Crews quickly put out the fire in the kitchen and rushed the man to University Medical Center where he died, Szymanski said. Investigators believe there may have been a flash fire while cooking which burned the victim."

2017-06-17 - Person found dead in burning car on Excaliber Lane in Sandy Spring (Maryland):

2017-06-17 - Deadly fire rages southeast of Coimbra (Portugal), homes destroyed, people incinerated in their cars, dozens killed, many injured:;-many-killed-in-cars/2114488/

Quote: "A raging forest fire enveloped a stretch of road in central Portugal this weekend, killing more than 60 people, including at least 30 motorists who were trapped in their cars.

Quote: "The loss of life due to a forest fire was the largest in memory in Portugal. It has been more than 50 years since 25 Portuguese soldiers were killed fighting wildfires in 1966. 'We are most likely facing the biggest tragedy of human life that we have known,' Costa said."

Quote: "Last year, Portugal was struck by a string of fires that damaged around 1,000 square kilometers (386 square miles) of land. In August, four people were killed in a blaze on the popular tourist island of Madeira."

Quote: "As temperatures reached 25C (77F), one soldier fell forward onto his knees, out of formation, before landing face down with his hands by his side."

Note: 77F doesn't seem hot enough to cause that, even with the bearskin hats. I did the 21-gun salute at military funerals in my WINTER uniform (because it wasn't officially spring yet) near Phoenix when it was 95+F and nobody ever fainted, although we did start taking bets on who'd pass out first one day during a particularly long 60-minute eulogy, but nobody did. So, FIVE soldiers collapsing unconscious, at 77F? Not normal. Have there been any strange odors in London lately? (Yes, mentioned in the 2017-06-12 update.) Have there been any unusual fires? (Yes, a gigantic fire that destroyed an entire high-rise apartment building at 12:54 AM, which killed dozens of people, mentioned in the 2017-06-14 update.) Anybody in London disappearing into the water lately? Well...
