Russia has had ALOT of them. Never seen Maine on the list until today. Look at all those Arkansas earthquakes. Wonder if it is fracking, HAARP, or just Mother Earth. Hope everyone has their grab and go bags up to date. That weather hanging over the midwest is crazy. I am waiting to watch Blake Shelton's special for the victims of Ok tornado and they will be under a threat while they play the benefit. Must be scary out there in tornado alley. We are sooooooooooo lucky. Hope we stay that way.:)<quoted text>
Yeah, I do not miss CA at all. Tornados have warnings. I think it was Russia that just had a big quake. The world has had a number of big quakes the last few years.
MURRAY, Ky. - State wildlife officials say "several hundred" dead birds were found near the Murray State University campus last week.

Maybe that theory of HAARP/Chemspraying acting like mirrors is a possibility, reflect them back out to space maybe and if it sacrifices a few to save many with the fallout from the spray, crazy weather, earthquakes etc to save most of the planet I guess we will just have to see huh? Guess it could happen. We probably have any potential EMP from terrorist under control, but outer space may be what they are working on. Stranger things have happened. haha

I thought of you and Hope/Belie (wasn't it?) talking about the water shortages to come 2 years ago?
States dependent on Colorado River consider conservation effort
Officials from the seven states express a cautious willingness to join the U.S. in a complex, possibly contentious effort to save water as drought fears grow.
SAN DIEGO — Officials in the seven states that depend on the drought-beset Colorado River expressed a cautious willingness Tuesday to join the federal government in a complex, possibly contentious effort to step up conservation.

More severe weather to hit many parts of US after tornadoes, thunderstorms
Severe weather is set to batter many parts of the United States on Wednesday, forecasters warned, including parts of the Plains torn by twisters last week.
Violent storms brought heavy rain to the Chicago area Tuesday, and large tornadoes touched Kansas, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. One person fell victim to the bizarre weather after a fatal lightning strike in Florida.
New York City and western Long Island could be hit by heavy rain and high winds on Wednesday, the Weather Channel reported.
In the Plains, a severe thunderstorm and tornado outbreak is expected stretching across a wide swath from South Dakota to central Texas. The threat of twisters was highest from south-central and southeast Nebraska to western Oklahoma.
“The ingredients are coming together for a severe thunderstorm and tornado outbreak in the Plains Wednesday,” said Weather Channel meteorologist Kevin Roth.
Many parts of the Chicago metropolitan area were lashed by torrential rain, frequent lightning and high winds late Tuesday, NBCChicago.com reported.
On the west coast of Florida, a woman was killed by lightning strike while visiting Belleair Beach, police said. Phyllis Kalinowski, 50, from Brandon, Fla., was sightseeing with her friend Dawn Ryskoskis, 45, at 6 p.m. when she was caught in the storm and died of injuries consistent with a lightning strike, according to a statement from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
In Chicago, a White Sox vs. Cubs game was canceled because of the rain and tornado warnings were issued for Grundy County and Will County in Illinois. There were also fears of flash flooding.
At least one home was destroyed and other buildings were damaged by a tornado in Nemaha County, north Kansas, late Tuesday, according to the Associated Press, while in Ottawa County a large tornado was reported around 5:30 p.m. local time in the area of Culver and Bennington, about 15 miles north of Salina, according to the Weather Channel.
The dark funnel of one of Kansas’ Tuesday evening tornadoes was captured in a video by the Salina Journal newspaper.
A tornado warning was issued for Erie County, Ohio, shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday after a funnel cloud was sighted, weather.com said. The Erie County emergency management agency said one and possibly two tornadoes were reported, and one went through the Union City area.
In northwestern Pennsylvania, a tornado touched down and damaged some buildings and at least one mobile home, but no injuries were immediately reported, weather.com said.
More from weather.com
Damaging winds and hail were among the severe weather threats to Upstate New York and New England on Wednesday, Roth said, while some storms were also possible in the upper Mississippi Valley ahead of the outbreak.
The storms could be seen in clusters “from Detroit early in the day then over to Western New York, Pennsylvania, Albany NY, maybe New York City and parts of western Long Island along the warm front by the end of the day,” Weather Channel meteorologist Mark Thibodeau reported.
Wednesday’s storms in the Plains were expected to move slowly, Thibodeau said, hitting the Southern Plains and northern half of the Mississippi Valley on Thursday.
Roth said Thursday’s severe weather threat extends from Minnesota and Wisconsin southwest to central and eastern Oklahoma and west Arkansas with the tornado threat highest in eastern Kansas and central and eastern Oklahoma.
You can see the really good on that earthquake map I posted. Scary. Hoping and praying for the best outcome, especially those already hard hit.

Adding to my reply on this subject from yesterday…
I do agree with you that an invasion of Syria is highly unlikely, but avoiding a regional war is also very unlikely. What started out as a covert operation to cut off the middle man of the resistance club (Iran, Hezbollah, and Syria) in the Middle East has turned into a sectarian war that will not end anytime soon.
Backing Assad: Iran, Hezbollah, Lebanese Shiites, Iraqi Shiite groups, and the government of Iraq.
Backing the rebels: Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Sunni groups from Lebanon, Sunni groups from Iraq.
Then of course we have the bigger powers like the U.S., Russia, France, and Britain, yet let’s get back to the sectarian issue. Ancient Shiite religious sites came under attack in both Syria and Iraq. The shrine of Ali and Fatima’s daughter, Sayyeda Zeinab, is a major site for the Shiite in Syria. The abuse of her shrine (and I think they took the body/skeleton) was one of the first reasons used by outside Shiite groups to get involved in Syria, to protect ancient religious sites. Next, in Iraq, the Sunnis attacked Ali’s shrine. Ali is the second most adored religious figure in Shia Islam after the Prophet Muhammad. Ali is considered the first great martyr and there is a great annual holiday festival, Ashura, in his remembrance where many Shiites flog themselves or worse. Both Sayyeda Zeinab and Hussein Ibn Ali are the grandchildren of the Prophet Muhammad. Now there are attacks on both Sunni and Shia peoples and places of worship in Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq.
When the revolution first broke out in Syria many Syrians were excited about it. Issues like religion were not a factor as all sought more freedom and political reform. Many of the educated middle class started peaceful unarmed protests and wanted to model their revolution after Egypt. The trouble started when the rebels came in from the poor rural population and started a massive campaign of revenge against those who lived a more privileged life. The rebels started a killing spree and claimed property as the spoils of war. Businesses were robbed down to the electrical wires and everything was taken to Turkey to be sold at a discount. Actions like these and others atrocities caused most of the peaceful activists to flee Syria as well. Now there is basically a slaughter on both sides.

Part 2 and Last
With so much horror going on in civilian territories over six million people have been displaced. About 4.5 million are displaced internally and 1.5 million externally. There are one million refugees in Lebanon placing a huge burden on the system, including schools. With sectarian violence returning to Lebanon the million refugees are now at a greater risk. Since the bombings in Tripoli there have been large protests calling for the expulsion of the refugees and security is quickly becoming an issue.
If Russia sends the S-300 missiles then there is a good chance that Israel will make another strike. Another strike by Israel will give the resistance an excuse that it is hoping for, although I am not sure if they want it at this exact point in time. Of course any retaliation could give Israel the excuse it is looking for to carry out strategic strikes against Hezbollah as well. If Israel wanted to strike Hezbollah now would be the time to do it forcing Hezbollah to fight two wars on two borders. Israel has been doing state wide drills practicing for attacks that would hail down conventional and unconventional missiles. These drills were practiced during work and school hours as well as during evening hours when families would be at home. Hezbollah and Syria would like to at least gain the Golan Heights back from Israeli occupation.
Now if war breaks out with Hezbollah and Syria against Israel it would be a good time for Hamas in Gaza to make their own moves. This would force Israel to fight a war on three fronts. If chaos like this scenario becomes a reality I would suspect it would be a good time for many anti-Israel groups to stage attacks and bring the goliath down and capture Jerusalem, the third holiest site of all Islam. Actually, the possibility of capturing all of Jerusalem could stop the sectarian war in order to ban together against a common enemy actually uniting Muslims.
Today the United Nations Human Rights Commission passed a resolution against the violence in Syria. The 47 members passed the resolution 36-1 with eight abstentions and two absent. Guess who voted against the resolution? Venezuela. Russia called the resolution “one-sided” and, in my opinion, they are correct. The resolution banned the use of missiles and heavy weapons by the Syrian government and foreign fighters that are assisting the Syrian government. The United Nations pointed out that powerful states need to use their influence to put an end to the civil war instead of fanning the flames causing the situation to “spiral out of control” and spread through the region. It is interesting to note that the United Nations referred to the opposition as a belligerence. I am unaware of the international community raising the status of the opposition to belligerent; however, if they did then a whole slew of international laws come into play as both sides must conform to the rules of war or face consequences. Many foreign fighters on both sides can create a big international criminal mess that would be interesting to watch.

Do not count the terrorists out yet. They are figuring out our soft spots. They would not carry out an EMP...Iran, North Korea, or Russia would have to pull that one off, even if it was done using a group on a ship in international waters.
I wish I could find the source where I read about HAARP and the ocean. I read it a few months ago and cannot remember what it said. I thought for sure I saved it for this thread. I will go look around some more and see if I can find it.

Rare tornado sweeps through outskirts of Milan, Italy (video)
A tornado struck in northeastern Milan, Italy, on Wednesday, and you don't need a translator to understand the reactions of those who captured the amateur footage posted above, while riding in a vehicle alongside the twister.
Marc Weinberg, a meteorologist for WDBR in Kentucky, shared the video today on his Facebook page and blog.
"We all know about the tornado threat that exists to our west and north today, but I am sure you didn't expect me to tell you that a tornado hit Milan, Italy today!" Weinberg wrote.
The tornado raged alongside the A4 motorway. There was widespread damage, but no injuries reported at the time of this post.
