Hurricane Sandy death toll reaches 74 in U.S.
Nov. 1, 2012 - At least 18 states have suffered damage from the superstorm. The death toll stands at 74 and some 5.6
million homes and businesses are still without power. The storm that brought record tidal surges to the coast also dropped snow
in many places further inland. Flooded subways and closed airports in New York affected countless travelers and commuters.
Widespread shortages of gasoline is a growing problem.
As far North and West as the Great Lakes, the storm caused waves of up to 16 feet.
- Eastern Maryland cleaned up from storm surge, while western Maryland dealt with as much as 29 inches of snow. Dueling
disasters are straining emergency resources.

Superstorm Sandy slams into N.J. coast
Oct. 29, 2012 - Superstorm Sandy delivered 80 mph winds as it struck New Jersey and pushed a 13-foot surge of seawater into New York City.
It was downgraded from hurricane status because of its shape and internal temperature, but was just as dangerous to the 50 million people in its
path. The level of flooding in lower Manhattan set a new record and threatens to seep into the city's subway system.
- The storm knocked out electricity to more than 2 million people and figured to upend life for tens of millions more. It clobbered the
boarded-up big cities of the Northeast corridor, from Washington and Baltimore to Philadelphia, New York and Boston.

Hurricane Sandy barrels toward East Coast, expected to bring 'life-threatening' storm surge
Oct. 29, 2012 - Hurricane Sandy is beginning to reach land on the Eastern Coast, threatening some 50 million people. The
National Hurricane Center says the super-storm is "life-threatening."
This combination might cause a foot of rain in places and generate a storm surge of 4 to 11 feet. It could cause widespread power outages
lasting for days. It might also dump up to 2 feet of snow in Kentucky, North Carolina and West Virginia.
- The hurricane is on path to meet a winter storm and a cold front, plus high tides from a full moon, and experts said the rare hybrid
storm that results could impact 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes.
Millions across East Coast brace for 'Superstorm' Sandy, while NYC to close transit services
Oct. 28, 2012 - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that New York City will suspend its bus, subway and commuter rail
service Sunday evening because of the dangers posed by Hurricane Sandy. 1,100 National Guard troops will be deployed to the area.
- The city closed the subways before Hurricane Irene last year, and a Columbia University study predicted that an Irene surge just 1
foot higher would have paralyzed lower Manhattan.

Solar Superstorm Could Knock out US Power Grid
Aug. 3, 2012 - The sun is moving into an active period called solar maximum. This phase is expected to peak in 2013. During the
next decade experts think there is as much as a 7 percent chance that the Earth could be hit by a superstorm on the Sun.
Experts warn that even a few hundred destroyed transformers could cause the entire grid to fail.
- A monster blast of geomagnetic particles from the sun could destroy 300 or more of the 2,100 high-voltage transformers that are the
backbone of the U.S. electric grid, according to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS).

Record-breaking solar flare described
June 11, 2012 - NASA reports that on March 7 the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope recorded a powerful solar flare. causing the sun to
briefly become the brightest object in the gamma-ray sky.
More solar eruptions are expected as the sun will reach the peak of its approximately 11-year activity cycle in mid-2013.
- The March flare produced high-energy gamma rays for about 20 hours, two and a half times longer than any event on record, researchers said.

4,700 potentially dangerous asteroids lurk near Earth, NASA says
May 18, 2012 - Extensive new sky-mapping techniques have found that there are likely 4,700 potentially hazardous asteroids in
orbit around the Sun. There are also approximately 1,500 space rocks, that are larger than 330 feet wide in orbits that occasionally bring
them close enough to threaten the Earth. Only about 30 percent of those objects have actually been found.

Mark this date for potential disaster
May 15, 2012 - Jonathan Cahn's book “The Harbinger” shows that warnings to the Israelites before their Assyrian capture
are a good example of the mistakes the USA is making after the "warning" of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The author, a Jewish Rabbi, points out
that the two greatest financial collapses in the 9/11 tragedy both came on, or very near the date on a seven-year cycle that marks the Sabbath
Year, when debts are to be forgiven and the land given a rest. If this is not just a coincidence, the next such Sabbath Year will begin on
Sept. 13, 2015. The author does not speculate about the events of that day, but just mentions that it is a date to watch.

Space weather expert has ominous forecast
May 7, 2012 - Mike Hapgood, a space weather scientist at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in England says a solar storm
could cause a great deal of damage here on Earth.
Hapgood says that progress had been made to protect orbiting satellites and other electronic equipment, but we are still not prepared for the
damage the Sun can cause from a massive Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). Occasionally he Sun's magnetic field gets disrupted and allows huge bursts of
plasma (the Sun's hot ionized gas) to escape into space like a giant hurricane. Most of these ejections do not hit the earth directly, but if one
does, it could be disastrous.
- A stream of highly charged particles from the Sun is headed straight toward Earth, threatening to plunge cities around the world into
darkness and bring the global economy screeching to a halt.

Iran preparing for 'the Last Six Months'
April 26, 2012 - While Iran publicly claims it has not yet decided to make nuclear weapons, the UN indicates that they already have enough
enriched uranium for six bombs. A former undercover CIA agent in Iran's Revolutionary Guard, who goes by the pseudonym Reza Kahlili, claims that
the country appears to be in the last six months of preparation for an all-out war, which they believe will usher in the return of their messiah,
the Mahdi (or 12th Imam) to destroy all of Islam's enemies.
Nine years ago Kahlili wrote a book, The Last Six Months. It describes the conditions that Iran's leaders believe will lead to Mahdi's return.
The 9/11 attacks and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq are preludes to even greater signs: Attacks on Syria and then on Iran itself. Current
conditions make both of these events plausible today.
- Mahdi will only reappear, Shiites believe, when Israel is destroyed and the U.S. is brought to its knees; [and] two-thirds of
the world’s population will die in a nuclear exchange.
Military insiders in Iran have been told that, thanks to their North Korea ally, they already have neutron bombs. These are nuclear weapons designed
to kill people with radiation while minimizing damage to buildings. They are known as Enhanced Radiation Warhead (ERW). If they are detonated at
high altitudes they become electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapons that could destroy much of the infrastructure a modern nation needs to survive,
including electric power, telecommunications, transportation, banking and finance, and the distribution of food and water. A report by the
Congressional EMP Commission says that one year after an EMP attack, about two-thirds of the U.S. population, 200 million people, would have
perished from starvation, disease or societal collapse.
According to the International Atomic Energy Association (IAEA) Iran has launched missiles from ships and detonated devices at high altitute, and
have already armed their naval vessels with ballistic missiles. They also plan to deploy warships in the Atlantic Ocean.
