MONDAY DECEMBER 30 2013
Hope you enjoyed the 2013 year in review here on the HORROR REPORT — there was a lack of a song of the year and movie of the year. Perhaps I was going to be extra embarrassed if I named a Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry song as the song of the year, so I chose not to.. as far as movie of the year, I was going to name the CONJURING but felt a flaw in that since I don’t completely have faith in the ‘real’ story behind the flick. The real movie of the year was probably GRAVITY, at least according to all friends and reviewers who saw it. I did not.. so I did not think I could fairly name a movie of the year ..
And now onto the news.
And usual, it ain’t good.

The Winter Games are only weeks away, but this weekend Russia started to look like a war zone..

There is still fear in 2014.. There have been some interesting and unsettling earthquakes in the Canary Islands over the past few days–this has happened before.

Now that the rumbling is happening again, those same rumors are being told. John Hogue is weighing in on the earthquake swarm and potential ramifications if Las Palmas euptions take place..
From livescience.com: “Two years after a new underwater volcano appeared offshore of El Hierro in the Canary Islands, earthquake swarms and a sudden change in height suggest a new eruption is brewing near the island’s villages, officials announced today”
If a big tsunami did occur, it would cause devastation in the aftermath.. Predictions that it would be 300 feet high, cover islands.. And here is a map of what it could do to the United States.
And it just so happened that this all occurred around the same time of these warnings of increased volcanic and seismic activity: A strong 5.4 shakes the Canary Islands..
The passengers trapped aboard the Akademik Shokalskiy off the coast of Antarctica have prepared a makeshift helipad on the ice to enable a helicopter rescue after an Australian icebreaker was unable to reach them.

Remember a few days ago, the HORROR REPORT told you about ‘big Bertha’ getting stuck under Seattle? The big drill isn’t moving.. Well, it did not take long for some to come up with some interesting theories: Including aliens! “Possible alien activities” underground ..
