TORNADO STRIKES BEACHFRONT PROPERTY IN NEW YORK CITY!


It's a reminder of how deadly of a day today could be--forecasters have warned for a week now that today would bring a round of horrid weather across the Northeast, including the threat of tornadoes..

And now this news is breaking of a tornado striking a beachfront neighborhood..

A photo was given to the AP taken by Joey Mure, which shows the tornado over the sea in Breezy Point near Queens:


The photo showcases how the Midwest isn't the only place that can get truly well-formed twisters--and how they don't just hit in spring but can also come when fall rushes in behind cold fronts in the late summer, as is happening today..

More dramatic weather is sure to take place throughout the day. Stay tuned to warnings if you are in affected areas. The HORROR REPORT home base is.. and I will be glued to NOAA radio within an hour or two as the storms begin to rush in..

A BLOOD RED RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT: YANGTZE TURNS COLORS

The Yangtze River in China is the longest and largest river in the nation.. yesterday in Chongquing, where the Yangtze connects to the Jialin River, the water turned a deep orange-red color. Residents are baffled by the new found color of the "golden" river--some however are blaming it on the widely known problem  of waste and pollution from industrial China. Chongquing is an industrial city.. 

According to international dispatches from the site of the red river, people are so amazed by the circumstances that they are actually going into the water with plastic bottles in order to save the discolored liquid.. others online are proclaiming days of tribulation coming, as Revelation says angels will make water on the planet turn to red during the last days.. 

To many, the events could signal doom. But to others who are more realistic, other approaches are more likely. Perhaps a chemical spill, perhaps low oxygen levels in the water, and maybe just a chemical dye that leaked into the river and caused the color. 


While it's difficult to accept most of what Red China says about orange rivers, it's clear that since this made it through the filter of Chinese censorship, some type of explanation will be forthcoming.. LiveScience is reporting that Chinese officials are investigating the cause, and so far believe it may be an industrial dye or upstream silt.. 


Cause yet to be identified. I don't expect any officials to admit Armageddon is on the way.

Check it out! Some residents were so amazed that they collected samples in water bottles

The whole zombie apocalypse was funny--at first.. now maybe the government just be realistic about future disasters .. please?

But in my humble opinion its humor has run dry.. no more laughs when I see the headlines referring to 'it' .. instead now I grumble in annoyance at joke--a joke that has gone on too long and vastly worn out its semi-welcome..

The latest example of the government utilizing the slogan in a tongue in cheek manner comes from the Department of Homeland Security, which said that the 'zombies are coming'..   I suppose the logic may make sense.. they figure if you're ready for zombies you can be ready for the New Madrid Fault rumbling, or California falling off the West Coast, or the Canary Islands erupting and causing the East Coast tsunami.. And interestingly, as the HUFFINGTON POST reports,  many the movie ZOMBIELAND '33 rules' for dealing with the dead resembles the list that the federal government is using for disaster preparedness.

Bless the souls of the folks in Homeland Security for wanting people to be prepared. Sure, I get it. But the zombie thing? OLD.. beyond old now.

As a matter of fact, it may have worked for .. about the first month they tried it. Then after that burst of cannibalism earlier this year it sort of got tainted by reality. Suddenly people online speculated that the government REALLY WAS warning of a zombie apocalypse.

What I would argue, again in an opinion that is reeking of humility, is that the federal government should speak to people like we are adults. Prepare us with reality but not fear. Don't say, for example, that if the New Madrid Fault erupts it would be the end of humanity, but instead educate on what happened in the past when it went.. And also, since there is quite a slew of earthquakes striking California in a seemingly odd cluster, perhaps talk realistically about how to prepare for the big one in our modern age of cell phone technology and WIFI connections.  And the big one: SOLAR FLARES. We need some reality from the government on their estimates of chances of survival if a large flare knocked out the power grid for some time.

Instead, though, they give us zombies. They figure we can deal with zombies and laugh and roll our eyes.. but in the end, does it help you really prepare? No. It just reinforces the silliness of this whole dead will walk the earth premise. 

And in the end, an educated populace is better than one submerged in ludicrous jokes and laughs about zombies roaming the night landscape.  We need real science, and mature officials telling humanity how exactly the wise way would be to prepare for future earth changes--changes that seem to get closer every day..

Two hurricanes converge? Could Leslie and Michael form a partnership?

Forecasters and others closely watching the Northern part of the Atlantic this weekend: Two storms, Michael and Leslie, appear to be heading for the same part of the Northern reaches of the planet .. And their tracks are close enough to make some wonder if they can converge into a larger storm.. Perhaps it could be the storm to end all storms! the storm of the century! the big one!

Or perhaps none of that will occur.. Much ado about nothing? 

If the storms did converge where would they go? Would they retain their individual identity? Their name could change? Would we name it Meslie or Lichael? Or Lilly? or .. Michelle? Possibilities are endless.

But the facts are these: Michael remains a very strong and impressive storm in the Atlantic Ocean right now. In just 12 hours from being named, it quickly became a category 3 storm. According to Accuweather, 
"As Leslie intensifies and becomes larger, it should influence the northward movement of Michael in about 4-5 days. This will also exert increased shear over the storm [Michael], causing it weaken during early next week," Kottlowski stated.
Michael's path will also be over colder water, another factor that will favor weakening.
Both storms will be moving over cooler waters as they travel, which will cause a degrading of their power regardless  of how strong and impressive they are now.


BUT..
The other important fact is this: Can two hurricanes combine and form one? It sounds like an appealing proposition for a Hollywood movie (or a new Art Bell and Whitley Streiber book) .. but the fact remains that wind shear from a stronger storm or cold waters will most likely cause one or the other to weaken, or they will interact with each other and weaken on their own. One storm will cause another to fall apart.. the ocean is only big enough in a sense.  A match made in hell or marriage made in the ocean is unlikely with two storms. 

However..
There is something called the Fujiwhara effect.. that is when two storms appear to begin orbiting around each other.. Even in that weather oddity, the merging of the two storms is uncommon and rare..

In our world..
Anything is possible. 

The HORROR REPORT will put its money on the likelihood that the storms will stay separate and one or the other, or both, will weaken in their travels. That's my money. But don't take that to the bank.. I don't have much money and I am not a forecaster by degreed-trade. 

Watching those waters churn.. and wondering which storms will be the first to say "This ocean is only big enough for one of us"..

The Earth is groaning: Seattle edition

Noises yet again are keeping residents on this planet awake and confused--this time the hum is in Seattle.

The earth groaning. Moaning. Or something?

The news of the Seattle noise comes from KING5, a news site in Seattle.. According to the report on the site, residents are even recording the noises in order to let the world hear them. One who was quoted in the story said "It gets high and lower, and goes away, then comes back." KING5 even has a recording of the hum on its website..

King5 says that some people are even feeling rumbles and being shaken out of bed by the earth groan..

As usual, companies are stating they are not to blame. There has been no official comment from the military. (remember the Navy blamed itself for the rumble in San Francisco this summer) ..

One suggestion is that the Seattle hum is an industrial noise ..

The mystery will continue, most likely..

And why not. No other earth groan or noise from across the planet have been cleared up since they began.. from Kiev to now Seattle, and all points in between.. a mystery exists over what noises are coming from the ground, below the earth.. or above us in the sky..

IN THE DARK WILDERNESS OF GHOST HUNTING, SOME CASES CANNOT BE EXPLAINED. WE FOUND A GROUP THAT WANTS TO FIND THE REAL STORIES OF THE PARANORMAL

A few days ago the HORROR REPORT discovered a Ghost Society from North Caorlina that uses a more scientific approach to find ghosts, dispel rumors of them, and weed through the fakery in turn to find the real ghost stories that are truly unexplained. Jason Porter is the head of the Carolina Paranormal Society, and he said 90% of ghost stories can be explained away.

That leaves 10% ..

The HORROR REPORT was able to speak to Mr. Porter in more detail about his organization.

The Carolina Paranormal Society is four years young now, beginning in 2008. Before moving from Maine to North Carolina, Porter has his own ghost hunting team. In North Carolina, he wanted to join a new one. But he didn't find what he wanted to.. Not impressed by the groups that existed, he started his own, formed a website, and put a call out for a team.

It worked. He has 17 people now and wants to eventually have 32, which would be two full teams.

Porter's team travels a 100 mile radius around Charlotte. They have traveled further than that to speak at conventions. I asked him would it would take to go beyond the 100 mile range. Porter said, "In order for us to HAVE to go there, it would have to be a really cool location with a lot of history, decent claims of activity, not had many (preferably none) previous investigations, and we are NOT paying anyone to investigate."

According to his society's history, about 25% of cases that get reported are even worthy of investigation. Often if they tell people to 'document their evidence' for 1 month, most don't even call back. Legitimate cases then get sent to a case manager who weeds through.. people accepting a ghost hunting team on their property must agree to terms.. it can take some time. But as Porter said, "If they are really wanting us to investigate, they will gladly endure the whole process. The process that we have come up with is not perfect. It's the paranormal, nothing is normal."

As said, Porter's approach to finding ghosts is to debunk those that can easily be explained--which is a high amount according to his experience.

So here was my thought: What do people who are convinced a ghost in their home or business think when a ghost hunter comes in and tells them 'no it's not a ghost'? Porter said, "We have had several people get upset when we told them that we debunked all their claims. I had a guy in Maine that got VERY upset when I told him that we debunked everything and that the evidence that he sent us was faked (which it was and we proved it)." Porter went on to explain just how upset the man got. "He got irate, telling me that we didn't know what we were doing and he told us we were never allowed on his property again. After looking around the internet, I found a website that he had put up with his evidence that he faked, trying to get people to come to his "haunted hunting lodge."

So people can get upset.

Porter did say though that most people are thankful if their haunting can be expained..

Speaking of evidence, the Paranormal Society website hosts a number of different video evidence and audio clips of EVPs. Porter said, "I think the best evidence anyone can get is an EVP. You are actually hearing someones voice that isn't there. Most of the time, the best EVP's come when you are having general conversation. Most people don't like to be interviewed, same goes with ghosts. They are people too. It's easier to just jump in on a conversation rather than to be interviewed."

I recall fondly (sometimes frighteningly) listening to ghost hunters playing EVPs on Art Bell's program from the 1990s through early 2000s. Many of those EVPs contained children's haunting voices. Interesting, Porter has not had the same experience as other ghost hunters seemed to have. "We really don't get many EVP's of children. I assume that if a team is getting EVP's of children then they were investigating a location that children would be, such as a children's ward of a hospital, an orphanage, or a school."

Have voices on EVPs ever said their names? How do you ask? Jason Porter has an easy answer: "You can simply ask, and hope they respond on the audio." But what if they lie? "Can you be sure that you are talking with Elvis or JFK? NO! Humans lie, ghosts are humans, ghosts can lie too. Hell, I could have a ghost in my living room claiming to be Napoleon, can I trust that it's him? No, he could be lying."

It makes sense. If ghosts exist, why would they be any less or more honest than they were as humans?

There has been a blizzard of ghost hunting TV shows that grace homes now. From those where the hunters turn off the lights and taunt spirits, to others where they are visibly upset running through abandoned mental facilities screaming. You can see it all. But do these ghost hunting shows help or harm? Porter said, "What I see that bothers me is the fact that we are called in many times to investigate locations for the simple fact that someone wants to see an investigation first hand, for the novelty of it. What most people don't understand, when they call us in for the novelty of it, they are wasting our resources. It cost us time, money, gas, possible equipment damage, all to fulfill someones curiosity. When we could be helping someone in true need that is on the waiting list. ."

In follow up, we asked if he'd consider a TV show: "ABSOLUTELY. I can't stand when these shows that are fake. The viewers need to understand that an investigation isn't 1 hour and they rarely yield true evidence. I don't even watch paranormal shows anymore." Porter was emphatic with the HORROR REPORT that he even if his group was featured on TV, he would set the ground rules: No doctored footage and no spicing up the camera shots just for entertainment purposes. 

There are fundementally large issues at the heart of what the Jason Porter's Carolina Paranormal Society are doing. Is there life after death? Where do souls go? If there is an afterlife, why do spirits seem to stick behind and haunt? Maybe they are just lost? On those issues, Porter has as much trouble as everyone else. He said, "Are there ghosts? I believe there are ghosts. What are they? No one truly knows. Are they what humanity has deemed them to be, the souls of the dead? Are they people from a different dimension, and our dimensions are bleeding into one another? Are they people from a different time, and our time period is intersecting with theirs. All these theories exist, but no one truly knows the answer. What are ghosts, and is there life after death? These, in my opinion is the questions that true investigators are trying to answer."

Indeed they are. Questions that we all want to know the answers to. Which is why the HORROR REPORT will support any group that weeds through fraud and fakery to find the real cases that help get closer to answers about the mysteries of life.

WILL COMA PUT YOU UNDER OR WAKE YOU UP?

A&E is hoping for high ratings for a four-hour miniseries set to be broadcast on its network. The title is COMA and it is based on a 1978 thriller.. the 1978 movie was actually based on a 1977 novel. A&E's new idea isn't novel, but it's updated a bit.. medicine has changed since way back in the Carter Administration.  It will start Monday and wrap up Tuesday..

The subject of the film: Peach Tree Memorial Hospital has a high amount of patients oddly falling into comas. Families are told that they are being transferred to an advanced care facility, but they are really becoming the subject of research and experimentation that pushes the boundaries of medical ethics.

Online reviews for the program have been mostly positive.. The majority call it fresh and entertaining. 

But the irony of this minimovie coming out now is there: Obama care and an election occurring, with debates fresh on front pages about what health care should do, and what health care should be. Medical ethics? Been there and done that. But caring for patients?? What should we do to people in comas? WHAT did we do to Terry Schiavo at the beginning of this new century?

Is the real subject not to trust anyone!? 

Perhaps a slam on Obamacare? No, not A&E..

Maybe eugenics 21st century style?

Maybe the film is more truth than fiction??

Should be an interesting mini-series should you be inclined to watch it.

Sometimes the scariest fiction is that which is closest to reality.
