Attack on Israel from Iran/Syria

And so on..

All that crop circle countdown stuff is just utter tripe , they are all man made and those who do them do a well thought out job of planning them.

Im sure there will be another renewed end of world date to come out soon enough.

guess what today is? the 18th, and surprise, surprise, no one has been anialated by alien beings yet. still plenty of day left, tho. ill update if ive been mutilated or abducted.

There was never supposed to be anyone annialated by aliens ... or aliens landing or anything... noone knows what is supposed to happen today.

posted on Aug, 18 2007 @ 10:01 AM
It's still early. The aliens need to have breakfast, maybe a cow mutilation first before close contact of the third kind.

This map says a nuclear event occured within the US yesterday. When taken to the info screen, nothing appears. Other strange things are also on this map. Earthquakes in the northwest US... It shows a "slide" occured today in Liberia off the african coast, was this that huge rock slab that was threatening America with tidal waves? It say's tsunami in U.S. to the left of the map, occured today. A chemical event occured today in the states apparently with a vehicle incident occuring in proximity. ???

Im in AL...not much of a nuclear event. As for the other things, they're most likey small. I think they said that tsunami was like a foot hight...oh, so scary.

"Event happened at 02:20:00 on 17/08/2007: Had it come in daylight, the minitsunami that hit the Hawaiian Islands might have been noticeable at Hilo and Kahului. But the biggest local wave generated Wednesday by an earthquake in Peru was only 27 inches high when it hit Hilo at 2:20 a.m. Thursday, said Dailin Wang, a Pacific Tsunami Warning Center oceanographer. The center had issued an advisory at 2:20 p.m. Hawaii time Wednesday that it was evaluating the potential threat from the 1:40 p.m. Pisco, Peru, quake. Although the earthquake measured 8 on the Richter scale, by 4:10 p.m. Wednesday the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center advised that Hawaii would not get a significant tsunami from it, Wang said. "Hawaii was never in the warning area," he said, just under an advisory. "We've got to balance between a real warning and a false warning," Wang said. The prediction was good, Wang said, as wave measurements for Hawaiian islands on Thursday showed:

- Hilo had the largest wave at 27 inches. Additional tsunamis continued every 17 minutes for a day, though by noon Thursday the wave size had dropped to 7 inches.
- Kahului's largest wave was about 23 inches.
- Honolulu Harbor's largest wave was only 3 to 4 inches.
- On Kauai, Nawiliwili Harbor's largest wave was 3 inches.

Thursday's tsunamis fell within the range of tidal fluctuation for Hawaii's harbors, Wang said. However, the larger waves would have been visible at Kahului or Hilo because they moved in at 17-minute intervals - not gradually like a tide change, he said. However, Big Island Mayor Harry Kim said he did not expect that anyone was at Hilo Harbor to notice. Hilo keeps a particular vigilance for tsunamis, having experienced a 46-foot wave April 1, 1946, and a May 22, 1960, tsunami that killed 61 people. "I have confidence in the PTWC (Pacific Tsunami Warning Center)," Kim said. "When they say 'Cancel it' (of the advisory) and put out an announcement to expect water-level fluctuations, I wasn't too concerned about it, because of the hour" the waves were to reach Hawaii, Kim said. "We just say 'thank you' and go home.""

As for the nuclear event.

The Tennessee Valley Authority shut down one of three units at the Browns Ferry nuclear plant Thursday because water drawn from a river to cool the reactor was too hot, a spokesman said. The nation's largest public utility shut down Unit 2 about 5:42 p.m. CDT because water drawn from the Tennessee River was exceeding a 90-degree average over 24 hours, amid a blistering heat wave across the Southeast. "We don't believe we've ever shut down a nuclear unit because of river temperature," said John Moulton, spokesman for the Knoxville, Tenn.-based utility. He said TVA would compensate for the loss of power by buying power elsewhere. The utility announced earlier Thursday that it was imposing a fuel surcharge on customers because of lower hydroelectric power production caused by drought conditions. Two other units at the plant were operating, as well as towers to cool the water. But searing temperatures and a lack of cooler water in the upper part of the Tennessee River system made it too difficult to provide cool water for all three reactors. There was no safety threat posed by the shutdown. Moulton said the average high temperature Thursday was 103 for five of the largest cities in TVA's coverage area: Huntsville and Knoxville, Chattanooga, Memphis and Nashville in Tennessee. "It's the hottest in 20 years," he said.

He would not estimate when the unit would go back on line, saying it will depend on the weather. "Temperatures are supposed to moderate some, but it will take a while for the river temperature to do that, too," Moulton said. He said demand for TVA power set a record 'Thursday but the figures would not be available until Friday.

The big question is should I mow the lawn today or wait until tomarrow. I do not want to waste my time if I'm just going to be killed later tonight.

It's my understanding that the 'nuclear event' was that a reactor had to be shut down because the water used to cool it was too hot from the heat wave down there.

I still feel weird, and it is only 1pm where I am.

We'll see. Nobody knows WHAT will happen today. For all we know some world leader could be making a decision right now that will not effect us for another 6 months.

Nop, solar spike? Nop, that doesn't count. The mega dump does!

1:05PM EST, nothing here but high temps in the upper 90's. We did have a raging storm blow through here yesterday afternoon. It was strong enough to blow down trees and really make a mess of the area I live in. I had never seen gusts like that in the woods until then. Younger saplings looked like they were going to bend over and touch the ground.
