December 22, 2018 - BREAKING: At least 43 dead, over 500 injured following possible tsunami in Indonesia
BREAKING: At least 43 dead, over 500 injured following possible tsunami in Indonesia

A tsunami has hit the Sunda Strait in Indonesia, leaving over a dozen dead and many more injured.

At least 43 people have died and another 584 injured by the tsunami on Saturday night, according to Reuters. Damage has also been reported along the coast.

Indonesia’s disaster management agency said that the tsunami may have been caused by an undersea landslide after the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano, according to the Associated Press. This is different from a tsunami that is triggered by an earthquake.

(The Sunda Strait in Indonesia is located just northeast of Krakatau)

The tsunami occurred during the full moon when tide levels were already higher than normal.

Makes it rather scary that tsunamis can happen without a warning earthquake.
Сегодняшнее сообщение. Странный, довольно объемный оползень, перекрывший русло реки. На фото странно выглядит и противоположный берег реки. Он как будто вычищен от леса с определенным радиусом. Никаких заслуживающих внимания сигналов, ни сейсмики, ни инфразвука не зарегистрировано.

Today's report. A strange, quite voluminous landslide that blocked the river bed. The photo looks strange and the opposite Bank of the river. It's like it's cleared of a forest with a certain radius. No noteworthy signals, no seismic or infrasound has been recorded.

A huge meteorite or landslide: state of emergency in the Khabarovsk region
24.12.2018, 16:58
Khabarovsk media reported that in the Verkhnebureinsky district "a huge meteorite" demolished the top of the hill, and it blocked the riverbed of the Bureya. The incident was not noticed immediately — it happened in a deserted area. A research team has already been sent to search for the meteorite. Experts confirmed the information about the complete overlap of the riverbed Bureya, there was a collapse of the soil width of almost a kilometer. However, no evidence of the fall of the meteorite has not yet been found-perhaps we are talking about the usual landslide.

Продолжение истории с оползнем на реке Бурее. Версию падения метеорита теперь никто не рассматривает, никакие объективные наблюдения ее не подтверждают. Однако стало еще интереснее, т.к. причиной оползня называют температурную аномалию совершенно неизвестной природы. Эта аномалия обнаружилась на спутниковых снимках и подтвердилась очевидцами, которые обнаружили парение и воду в жидком состоянии при температуре воздуха -35.

Continuation of the story of the landslide on the river Bureya. Version of the fall of the meteorite is now no one is considering, no objective observations do not confirm it. However, it became even more interesting, because the cause of the landslide is called a temperature anomaly of completely unknown nature. This anomaly was detected on satellite images and confirmed by eyewitnesses, who found vaping and water in a liquid state at an air temperature of -35.

Verkhnebureinsky hunters discovered the crash site of the meteorite in the forest, do not agree with the version of the landslide. Too many strange things were seen by inhabitants of Poselka chekunda, when a couple of days ago went to the bed of the river Bureya. They told the correspondent about what they saw DVhab.ru and shared a video taken at the scene.
The mysterious place is located about 70 kilometers from the village of Chekunda. According to hunter lover Alexander Markarova, the course of the Bureya river's blocked from shore to shore. He doubts that the landslide could cause destruction in such a large area.

— There is for miles around are all covered. It can't be that it was a simple descent of soil, — Alexander Markanov is convinced.

In favor of the landslide, scientists cite the fact that the seismic station on the eve did not record any moments. However, in addition to a pile of earth, hunters found a fault in the earth's crust. It was he who caused their greatest surprise. From the underground depths rose hot air, from which near everything was covered with thick white frost.

— We now have a temperature of minus 35, and there lay the warm stones and the water is not near freezing, — said Alexander.

His partner Anatoly Ivanov the next day again went to the taiga to the blocked channel of Bureya. He became a guide for a group of emergency workers from the district center. Six rescuers were shocked by what they saw. They immediately put forward a version of the fall of a large celestial body.

- There are thousands of tons of soil, this amount could not occur during a landslide from a nearby hill. Looks like it's soil from the bottom of the river. Besides the embankment continues to soar, - Anatoly Ivanov admitted.

In conclusion, the hunter added that let scientists deal with what happened, and he is responsible only for what he saw.

We will remind, in a deserted place, near the village of Chekunda on December 21, two young people went hunting in Verkhnebureinsky district and found that across the riverbed Bureya appeared a large pile of stones, earth and trees. The top of one of the hills was demolished.

December 25, 2018 - Indonesian rescuers struggle against heavy rain to reach tsunami-hit villages

SUMUR, Indonesia - Indonesian rescue teams on Wednesday struggled to reach remote areas on the western coast of Java amid an “extreme weather” rain warning after a tsunami killed more than 400 people last week.

Heavy rain lashed fishing villages along the coast, muddying roads and holding up convoys delivering heavy machinery and aid to isolated areas while authorities urged residents to stay away from the shore in case of further waves.

Clouds of ash spewed from the nearby Anak Krakatau, or child of Krakatau, almost obscuring the volcanic island where a crater collapse at high tide on Saturday sent waves up to 5 meters (16 feet) high smashing into the coast on the Sunda Strait, between Java and Sumatra islands.

Indonesia’s meteorology agency (BMKG) said the rough weather could make the volcano’s crater more fragile.

“We have developed a monitoring system focused specifically on the volcanic tremors at Anak Krakatau so that we can issue early warnings,” said BMKG head Dwikorita Karnawati, adding that a two-kilometer exclusion zone had been imposed.

The confirmed death toll is 430, with at least 159 people missing. Nearly 1,500 people were injured and over 21,000 people have evacuated to higher ground.

A state of emergency has been declared until Jan. 4, which authorities hope will make it easier to deploy assistance, said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for the national disaster mitigation agency.

Search and rescue teams were focused on the town of Sumur near the southwest tip of Java, but “the roads are damaged and clogged” and helicopters had to be deployed to carry out assessments and evacuations, he added.

Volunteers were having to piece together makeshift bridges out of concrete blocks after the waves washed away infrastructure along the coast.

The surge of seawater also left dozens of turtles, weighing several kilograms, stranded on land, and some volunteer rescuers worked to carry them back to the sea.

On Sebesi Island in the middle of the Sunda Strait, helicopters had been dispatched to evacuate residents.

Along the coast, thousands of people are staying in tents and temporary shelters like mosques or schools, with dozens sleeping on the floor or in crowded public facilities. Rice and instant noodles have been delivered to many shelters, but clean water, wet weather gear, fresh clothes, and blankets are in short supply, some evacuees said.

BANGKOK - Thailand’s first tropical storm in three decades killed one person on Friday as it arrived on the south coast, knocking down trees and blowing off roofs in its path, but was losing speed, officials said, while warning against the risk of flash floods.

Accompanying winds churned up high waves and gusts in the Gulf of Thailand as tropical storm Pabuk made landfall in the Pak Phanang district of Nakhon Si Thammarat province, where trees crashed down on houses to cause widespread damage.

Disaster mitigation officials said the person killed was among the crew of a fishing boat that capsized in strong winds near the coast of nearby Pattani province. Another of the crew was missing, but four others were safe.

Weather officials warned of torrential downpours and strong winds in 15 provinces in the Thai south, home to one of the world’s largest natural rubber plantations and several islands thronged by tourists.

But by Friday afternoon, the storm was slowing, and was heading for the province of Surat Thani, the Thai Meteorological Department said in a statement.

“It is expected to downgrade to be a tropical depression,” it added. “People should beware of the severe conditions that cause forest runoffs and flash floods.”

The conditions are expected to persist into Saturday. With airports and ferry services shut, people were advised to stay indoors until the storm passed.

BANGKOK: Thailand’s first tropical storm in three decades, packing winds of up to 80 kph (50 mph), is expected to make landfall on Friday evening, sending thousands of people flocking to shelter inland and shutting down two major airports.

“The strong winds are forecast with waves up to 3 to 5 meters high in the Gulf and 2 to 3 meters high in the Andaman Sea. All ships (should) keep ashore,” the Thai Meteorological Department said in a statement early on Friday. The conditions would persist into Saturday, it added.

An experienced para-glider had a shocking encounter with a dust devil while preparing for a flight in Manilla, New South Wales, Australia on January 2.

The man, who was visiting from overseas, was one of 40 paragliding pilots setting up to take off for a cross-country flight from a popular launch spot on Mount Borah in the north-west.

A dust devil rapidly formed and raced across the launch area, catching the paraglider and flinging him into the air.

In this video, filmed by the man’s wife, the para-glider is lifted up and swirled around for a few seconds before being ejected out to the side of the fast-rotating dust devil.

OSLO: Norwegian authorities said Friday they had given up hope of finding four Finnish and Swedish cross-country skiers alive after they appeared to have been caught in an avalanche in the Arctic two days ago.

The skiers, three Finnish men and a Swedish woman, were reported missing by a friend on Wednesday around 4:00 p.m. (1500 GMT) in Tamokdalen in Troms county, northern Norway.

Bad weather in the region has complicated the search, but a helicopter rescue team on Friday detected two transponder signals in the region hit by the avalanche.

“This confirms our assumption that the missing were swept away by the avalanche,” Troms police commissioner Astrid Nilsen told reporters.

“We do not consider it feasible that any of the four could have survived,” she said, noting that almost two days had passed since the avalanche.

ATHENS - An elderly woman was found dead and two men were missing after blizzards hit parts of Greece, police officials said on Saturday.

Temperatures in central and northern Greece have remained below zero for almost a week, during which time heavy snow has disrupted transport services and forced flights to be diverted in the north of the country.

The body of the 66-year-old woman was recovered from a car found overturned near a stream in Keratea, a region 45 kilometers southeast of Athens. Two men who had been in the car were unaccounted for.

“Her husband and one more man, who were in the same car, have been reported missing since Thursday when bad weather conditions prevailed in the area,” a police official said on condition of anonymity.

The Greek civil protection service has urged municipal authorities to be on the alert ahead of a further spell of cold weather expected to hit Greece on Monday.
