(ETH) – East Africa is bracing for a third devastating locust invasion that is threatening crucial food supplies according to a new report from Express. According to the report, East Africa has already experienced devastation by a series of locust infestations over the past few months.
Just between January and April, alone, up to 1.3 million hectares of land and 200,000 hectares of crops were reportedly destroyed in Ethiopia. The incredible dry season and drought conditions are feared to provide the optimum breeding ground for the locusts in time for the next harvest.
After multiplying the locusts then emerge during the rainy monsoon season to wreak havoc by the millions. Up to 350,000 tons of cereals have been destroyed by locusts between January and April in the East Africa region. In February, Somalia declared a “national emergency” after a deadly swarm decimated its vital vegetation.
Kenneth Kemucie Mwangi from the climate monitoring program of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IDAG) recently stated: “Until we get extended figures, I would just say Ethiopia was definitely the most affected in terms of croplands, then Somalia.”
Another expert from the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations highlighted the extent of the infestation by insisting hundreds of billions of locusts have already been killed in the region. He said: “About 400,000 hectares were controlled in the region between January and mid-May.
“We estimate that 400 billion locusts have been exterminated.” There is much feared that the next wave could be on its way after Namibia’s Ministry of Agriculture stated on Wednesday that the locusts were flying in from Botswana and Zambia.
Early wildfires are raging across Arizona and California as the trinity of wildfires, drought, heat and gusty winds are converging once again creating ideal conditions for rapid spread. Alaska using dogs to protect firefighters from bears
June 19, 2020
Firemen battle the great Porter Ranch fire last year.
Another horror show has arrived which could well take our minds off Covid-19, Civil war or WWIII and it's earlier than usual.
Here we go again and this year they are early with a long hot summer ahead. On November the 8th 2019, California's biggest and most ruinous wildfire of the year, a wind-driven blaze that scorched 120 square miles (310 square kilometres) was declared fully contained and extinguished, however, a new horror show was just beginning in New South Wales, Australia.
According to authorities at the time, an "unprecedented" (90) number of emergency-level wildfires were streaking across New South Wales, Australia in drought-affected areas aided by gusty winds and 35 deg C (95 deg F) heat. There were reports of people trapped in their homes in several places, with fire crews unable to reach them due to the strength of the fires. We all know the outcome of those unprecedented fires in Australia which went on to destroy an incredible 21% of its temperate forests and killed more than a billion animals.
Back to the future, namely June 19, 2020. Early wildfires are raging across Arizona and California as the trinity of wildfires, drought, heat and gusty winds are converging once again creating ideal conditions for rapid spread.
According to Reuters, so far more than 2,000 were evacuated from three large wildfires in Arizona on Thursday as dry conditions and gusty winds whipped blazes across the U.S. Southwest. Over 1,500 residents fled small communities in mountains about 50 miles (80 km) northeast of Phoenix, Arizona, as a wildfire grew to an area larger than the city of Detroit overnight, fire officials reported. Firefighters battling the Bush Fire faced gusting winds, low relative humidity and triple-digit temperatures as flames leapt through piñon pine and juniper in the Tonto National Forest. The fire, which began with a vehicle blaze, was the largest of 37 fires burning in the United States at 114,941 acres (46,515 hectares) and already the seventh-largest in Arizona history, according to National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) and National Weather Service (NWS) data. “We have hotter temperatures approaching,” said Marvin Percha, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Phoenix, forecasting above-average temperatures of 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 Celsius) by Monday. Around a dozen other fires burned in Arizona as it faced another record daily rise in coronavirus cases on Thursday. The Mangum Fire had blackened 56,780 acres (22,980 hectares) around 40 miles (65 km) north of the Grand Canyon, forcing 230 people to leave their homes. Four hundred homes were evacuated for the Bighorn Fire north of Tucson, which had burned 23,892 acres (9,669 hectares)
To the west, much of California remained under a “red flag warning” for erratic gusty winds, around half a dozen small fires burning up and down the state. Alaska reported dozens of small blazes and the use of dogs to protect wildland firefighters from bears. Karelian Bear Dogs, a Finnish breed known for their fearless nature, were flown to a firefighting camp to protect personnel and supplies from the intruding animals, according to fire authorities.
Some Fear ‘Ring of fire’ Eclipse Could Be Harbinger of Apocalypse Sending ‘Darkness Over the Holy Land’
June 18, 2020
(OPINION) ETH – In what many are saying is a striking coincidence, the 2020 summer solstice will reportedly occur on the very same day as a major annular eclipse. However, according to the Daily Star, some believe this is more than just a mere “coincidence” but believe that darkness that will fall on June 21st is a sign in the Heavens that the apocalypse is near.
The solar eclipse taking place this Sunday is the first time the breathtaking phenomenon has occurred this year, and experts are saying it will be the “deepest” eclipse of the century as it will take place during the solstice when the sun is at maximum elevation. In this event the moon will reportedly cover up to 98.8% of the sun’s disc, making the eclipse appear more unique than previous events with just a narrow ring visible in the sky for about 30 seconds in where we derive the term “Ring Of Fire” eclipse.
According to the report, Millions of people in the northern Indian region will witness a particularly unusual eclipse. “Instead of a wide fiery ring, the sun may appear as a necklace of shiny beads (known as Baily’s Beads) due to light filtering through the moon’s hills and valleys,” astrophotographer Ajay Talwar told the Times of India. But for many, this isn’t just a rare astronomical event but actually fear it’s a sign of the end of the world.
One Christian evangelist Paul Begley who believes the world is soon coming to an end has seized on this year’s catastrophic events as proof of the “coming apocalypse”. He recently stated: “Guys, we are in end-time plagues,” he said in a recent video on his YouTube channel where he has more than 335,000 subscribers. “Locusts of a biblical proportion are destroying countries like Yemen, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, Pakistan now has been swamped, India overwhelmed with locusts.”
Countries in East Africa and the Middle East have been continually struggling with an unprecedented number of locusts after a major breeding season, coupled with the country’s pest control abilities hampered by the coronavirus pandemic. The Bible reveals that locusts were used as one of the Ten Plagues of Egypt inflicted by God to pressure Pharaoh to free the Israelites from slavery and bondage. Begley believes that this eclipse event on June 21st is yet another sign of armageddon, referring to another of the ten plagues – when God told Moses that “darkness will spread over Egypt” for three days.
This eclipse will also be visible from Israel leading the Begley to speculate that once more the people of the “Holy Land” will be thrown into darkness in a bad omen. “There are three major signs in the heavens that are going to happen between now and the end of the year,” he said. “The first one is on June 21. We’re going to have a solar eclipse that’s going to go over the entire Holy Land. “It’ll be over Israel for six hours. The Sun will turn to darkness for six hours.
“Are you serious? A ring of fire will be around the Sun.” Begley also points to a second “major sign in the heavens” which is another eclipse that will occur on July 4th, which will be a penumbral lunar eclipse that coincides with Independence Day. “The midnight Blood Moon over American on the Fourth of July is certainly a prophetic sign,” he said.
Paul Begley isn’t the only voice claiming that this weekend’s eclipse is a harbinger of things to come. Many other “conspiracy theorists” have recently stated that the notorious 2012 apocalypse – which obviously never took place was calculated to happen eight years too early. So Instead, they are now saying, the Mayans predicted a world-ending catastrophe on June 21, 2020, rather than on December 21, 2012, because they were relying on the Julian Calendar rather than the Gregorian Calendar.
However, we know this will be another flop because Jesus plainly told us that “No man knows the day of the hour” And then there is the “doomsday planet” Nibiru followers that have also claimed the mythical space body has entered our solar system and is barreling towards Earth that will end in a deadly collision on June 21st. A recent video shared on social media this week claimed to show the rogue planet close to Earth. So what are you going to choose to believe? Conspiracies or the Bible?

TWC) – The Bush Fire burning in Arizona’s Tonto National Forest northeast of Phoenix exploded in size Tuesday to more than 100 square miles. It’s the largest active fire in the country, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.
The Bush Fire is one of several large wildfires that have broken out in Western states, leading to evacuations and road closures. High temperatures and an extended period of dry weather along with gusty winds are increasing the fire danger early this week.

(OPINION) ETH – Here we go again with more ridiculous predictions of the “end of the world” and date-setting. The latest claim is making its rounds on social media from conspiracy theorists telling people that the world will end on June 21st by the arrival of what they say is Planet X or “Nibiru”.
According to Express, These bogus claims are alleging that the dreaded doomsday Planet X or Nibiru has entered the solar system and believed by many to orbit the Sun every 3,600 years and its passage of Earth is meant to herald the end of the world as we know it.
According to these wild claims, Nibiru’s alleged arrival in the system coincides this week with bizarre claims the Maya predicted the end of the world would strike on June 21 – the date of a Ring of Fire solar eclipse.
This claim stems from a video shared this week on social media titled “Nibiru/Nemesis System is right in front of your eyes”, claiming to shows the rogue planet above Earth. Nibiru reports vary, with some claiming it is a planet on an elongated orbit of the Sun, while others claim it is a brown dwarf star or mini solar system.
The description of this video uploaded by Gabriela Stardust reads: “I didn’t expect too much tonight by filming our skies… but like it is in our lives, always expect the unexpected and be amazed how they can hide and manipulate our skies with those chemtrails and geoengineering. “I was surprised when I did evaluate my recordings and that I was able to capture more than five planetary objects withing my 25 minutes recording.

Latest Desert Locust situation update: Rain causing swarms to expand. In a new development, swarms are now migrating toward West Africa as the groups increase, new swarms are about to form in East Africa.
An absurd amount of water poured down all over the world in May and an incredible amount of rain fell on all areas suffering from locust swarms from Africa to India killing hundreds and displacing more than a million people.
A second-generation of immature swarms have now started to form in northwest Kenya as of 9–11 June, this is a result of heavy rainfall and flooding in May which killed more than 240 people and displaced 100,000 Kenyans. Swarm formation will continue for about four weeks while the bulk of the swarms will form during the second half of June. Prior to migration, swarms will remain for a short time during which there is a considerable threat to crops and pastures in Turkana and Marsabit counties. From about 15 June, an increasing number of swarms are expected to migrate northwards with the prevailing winds to Ethiopia and Sudan.
In Ethiopia, swarms are likely to first appear in the south and continue to Oromia, Somali, Amhara, Afar and Tigray regions. Once again heavy rains in May are to blame, mote than 200,000 Ethiopians were displaced due to flooding in May. It will take about one week for swarms to migrate from northwest Kenya to Sudan. During that time, they will traverse South Sudan (mainly east of Juba, Bor, and Malakal) and perhaps northeast Uganda, where heavy rainfall caused flooding killing 8 and displacing 100,000 people in May.
Strong and shallow Magnitude 5.9 earthquake strikes Turkey, leaving at least one dead and 18 injured

(ETH) – A strong and shallow magnitude 5.9 earthquake has struck eastern Turkey’s Bingol province killing at least one person and injuring two others after two observation towers reportedly collapsed. The report went further to state that seven others were rescued from the wreckage, according to the Daily Sabah.
There has been a report of 18 people who were injured but no one critical, as well as 10 houses that were damaged in the Elmalı and Dinarbey villages of the Yedisu district. Locals stated that the tremor reportedly lasted 8 to 10 seconds.

(ETH) – Scientists have been left puzzled following a mysterious green fireball that flew across the sky in the remote West Australian outback early this morning. According to a report from ABC, Night workers on remote sites from Cape Lambert to Hope Downs in the Pilbara witnessed the bright light just before 1:00 am, and was captured on video by many.
These reports were seen as far away as the Northern Territory and South Australia, according to Glen Nagle from the CSIRO-NASA tracking station in Canberra. “It was really a spectacular observation,” he said. “People have captured something very special here.”

(ETH) – NASA is reporting at least five more asteroid flybys following an asteroid unexpectedly whizzing between Earth and the Moon without anyone noticing recently according toRT News.
Four out of five of these asteroids expected to buzz pass earth this week were only recently spotted back in May, raising concerns about just how prepared our planetary defenses are; According to the report, While we caught them, we cut it very close if we needed to shoot them out of the sky or at least deflect them, which is our only two options to stop an asteroid apocalypse at this present day.The good news is that these the asteroids, ranging in size from 46 feet to 180 feet in diameter, will miss the earth by a safe margin of error of between 869,000 miles and 4.1 million miles, so there is no immediate concern of an asteroid strike to top off the wildfires, pandemic, economic crises, and social and civil unrest which have plagued the Earth so far in 2020.
However, On April 13, 2029, asteroid 99942 Apophis will graze our geostationary satellites in orbit around the planet. This monster has a diameter of 1,100 ft (340m), Although, it is not quite a ‘planet killer’ in size, it will mark the closest approach by one of the largest known asteroids expected to cross paths with the Earth in the near future.

Toward the center of our galaxy, in a star system far away, is a planet with features that remind us of home.
Astronomers at New Zealand's University of Canterbury (UC) discovered a particularly rare super-Earth. "The new planet is among only a handful of extra-solar planets that have been detected with both sizes and orbits close to that of Earth," said UC in a release on Monday.
"Extra-solar planet" is another term for exoplanet, which describes a planet located outside our solar system. We only have artists' impressions of what these planets might look like, but they continue to fuel our curiosity as we seek out distant worlds that feel familiar.
The newly spotted exoplanet's year lasts about 617 days and it travels around a much less massive star than the sun. It's located near the Milky Way's central bulge of stars. For scale, Earth is about 25,000 light-years away from the galactic center.
The researchers published their findings in The Astronomical Journal this month.
NASA Films Multiple ENOCH GATE UFOs Identical To Those Dr. Thomas Horn And Cris Putnam Were Shown From Mt. Graham’s INFRARED “LUCIFER” DEVICE, Sparks Social Media Frenzy

Three separate UFOs have spotted next to the International Space Station in official space agency photographs, according to Scott E Waring. Another added: “Those look to me to be invisible entities described by [Tom Horn and] Santilli from the Vatican observatory near Tuscon who shot them in infared.” Mr Waring had earlier cryptically tweeted: “You know the best thing about doing my research of NASA photos? It’s catching NASA using photoshop. I will show the original photo I found the UFO in, then NASA edited it out so it’s gone, but little does NASA know the original still exists. New video soon…
