Queensland wild weather: BoM warns flash-flooding, powerful wind gusts expected

EWN Significant Weather Forecast Map

 

Emergency services are on standby with flash-flooding and powerful wind gusts expected to hit south-east Queensland from today, but it will not be as widespread as first predicted.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) said a trough was moving faster than expected, slightly reducing the threat of heavy intense rainfall from Fraser Island to Brisbane's northside.

But the bureau warned drenching falls and damaging winds were still set to lash areas from Brisbane's CBD and southern suburbs through to the Gold Coast.

Geomagnetic Storming may be Possible about 4 June

 

G2 Watch for 4 June 2016

 

G2 (Moderate) Watch in Effect for 4 June UTC day

published: Wednesday, June 01, 2016 21:02 UTC

A G2 (Moderate) geomagnetic storm watch is in effect for the 4 June, 2016 UTC-day.

A recurrent coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) is likely to impact Earth with up to a G2 storming response.

This CH HSS effected Earth on 8 May (Mother's Day) with over 24 hours of geomagnetic storming up to the G3 (Strong) level.

While the geomagnetic storming is not expected to be as intense as last rotation, data analysis suggests this CH HSS is is still likely to cause geomagnetic storming up to the G2 level.

The potential for continued geomagnetic storming on into the 5 June UTC-day exists and SWPC forecasters are still evaluating data to determine if a Watch for 5 June is warranted. Keep checking our SWPC webpage for further updates and forecasts.



Geomagnetic Storming may be Possible about 4 June

published: Monday, May 30, 2016 21:01 UTC

Geomagnetic storming is possible next weekend.

A returning coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) is likely to rotate into an Earth-influential position beginning around 4 June. 

This recurrent CH HSS was responsible for the 8 May (Mother's Day) storming, when over 24 hours of G1 (Minor) to G3 (Strong) storming occurred.

Forecasters will continue to analyze this feature and determine if Watch conditions are warranted as it rotates into better view.

Keep informed as it gets closer to 4 June, by checking our website for the latest forecasts, updates, and information.

Elite Special Forces Insider Warns Of Serious Civil Unrest This Summer: “Everything Is Right For Things To Go Very Wrong”

riots1

In the lead up to the Presidential election we’ve seen pockets of riotous behavior across America. Whether supporting Trump, Sanders, Hillary or Cruz, average Americans appear to be ready to go to war with their government or with each other. This sentiment, coupled with continued economic degradation and a general feeling of a populace that has for decades been marginalized by the political machine in the United States, is showing all the signs of serious civil unrest on the horizon.

In the following interview with Infowars.com special forces commando Tim Kennedy weighs in, describing the current situation as a trench having been dug and filled with accelerants just waiting to be ignited.

Kennedy is a continuity of government expert, which means he’s well versed in not only how the powder keg of civil unrest could potentially explode, but what The-Powers-That-Be will do once it does.
