This map shows the location of the March 11, 2011 earthquake in Japan, as well as the foreshocks (dotted lines), including a 7.2-magnitude event on March 9, and aftershocks (solid lines). The 1931 Central China floods were a series of floods that occurred during the Nanjing decade in the Republic of China era.
Syrian RefugeesBack in May of 2009, the site of the Zaatari refugee camp (shown here) held only arid scrub land on the border between Jordan and Syria. Peruvian DeforestationWhile a typhoon may have caused much of the vegetation loss in and around Tacloban, the loss of rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon (shown here) bore the signature of human activity.

More refinements are possible as new information on the earthquake comes to light, he added. Over the course of a year, its length varies by about one millisecond, or 1,000 microseconds, due to seasonal variations in the planet's mass distribution such as the seasonal shift of the jet stream.
The resulting tsunami is given various names, including the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Asian Tsunami, Indonesian Tsunami, and Boxing Day Tsunami.
That city, the Zaatari refugee camp (shown here in a NASA Earth Observatory image from July of 2013), is the the size of Fargo, North Dakota, and exemplifies the human suffering caused by the Syrian civil war.

Jenkins estimated that approximately 300,000 tons of trees and other biomass were cut down.
The blaze torched 486 homes by the time firefighters contained the inferno nine days later, reported NASA's Earth Observatory. At least 20 aftershocks registering a 6.0 magnitude or higher have followed the main temblor. At least 1,836 people died in the actual hurricane and in the subsequent floods, making it the deadliest U.S. The earthquake triggered extremely destructive tsunami waves of up to 10 meters (33 ft) that struck Japan minutes after the quake, in some cases traveling up to 10 km inland, with smaller waves reaching many other countries after several hours. The Landsat program uses National Aeronautic and Space Administration satellite images to monitor the Earth from space with assistance from the U.S. Damage was estimated at over $ 10 billion, which made it the most damaging cyclone ever recorded in this basin. It caused the entire planet to vibrate as much as 1 cm (0.4 inches)and triggered other earthquakes as far away as Alaska.
Planes flying in the impact zone would goods package this space is Copp's " triangle of life" Land. Scientists have proven the primary influence on Earth's atmosphere and temperature is caused by irradiance from the Sun (also known as sunspots or solar winds).  Sunspots are storms on the Sun’s surface that are marked by intense magnetic activity and play host to solar flares and hot, gassy ejections from the sun’s corona. What scientists know, but are not reporting publicly is that the temperature of Earth is directly related to the irradiance of the Sun. In other words, there is absolute scientific proof that global temperatures are directly related to the Sun’s emissions with man-made carbon emissions being relatively or completely insignificant. The basic summary from the “The Great Global Warming Swindle” documentary is that Earth’s climate changes in direct relationship to the Sun either heating up or cooling down. Our Sun may be completing a 100,000 solar year cycle (as recorded in the Antarctic ice core data). The following graph compares Solar Irradiance in relationship to changes in Earth's Surface Temperature. These next two graphs, provided by NASA, display the change in Global Temperatures over the last 150 years along with a breakdown of temperature anomalies for both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The next graph, also from NASA, displays the changes in global ocean temperatures or Heat Content.
This next graph breaks down the Global Temperature Anomaly data into Land Temperature changes and Ocean Temperature changes with the combined Land and Ocean Temperature data at the top of the graph.
Most people are probably aware that our climate and weather have been fairly predictable for centuries with an understanding of the commonly known solar cycles 1-24.
If you’ve been paying attention to the news on global climate activity over the past few decades, then you know that weather events are occurring globally which no longer conform to these well respected solar cycles. As you can see from the following graph, the number of reported natural disasters related to weather and climate are skyrocketing. We have unusual weather in the Arctic, Australia, the Middle East, Europe, North and South America. We are seeing new records of both heat and cold throughout the world with no real explanation from climatologists except to blame it on man-made global warming. If we assume the government and their scientists are aware of their own internal data from NOAA, NASA, and other climate related agencies, then they must at least be aware of the increases in extreme weather and the resulting natural disasters.
Let’s take a look at some events on Earth today that are often under-reported and see how they might also affect global temperatures. The previous graphs on changes in Earth's temperature are both shocking and revealing, but there is more to be revealed.
This next graph displays how temperatures vary depending on whether you are on the surface of Earth (in the troposphere) or stratosphere (upper atmosphere). If you look closely at the above graph, you can see three red triangles that represent large-scale volcanic eruptions. Besides the obviousness of global warming as depicted in all of these graphs, there are also ground-based natural phenomena which influence Earth’s surface temperature. El Nino is commonly referred to as a warm ocean current that results from warming of the equatorial waters in the Pacific Ocean. Unlike the El Nino phenomenon, La Nina (the "little girl" in Spanish) refers to the occurrence of unusually cold ocean water in the same geographical area as El Nino, i.e. The following graph displays the probability of the occurrence of El Nino and La Nina from July 2009 through April 2010. It’s obvious from the following image and the news surrounding global warming that the scientific community understands the relationship between Earth’s ocean temperatures and changes in climate, however, it appears they are still missing the actual cause of rising global temperatures. From the below graph, you can see a measurable increase in volcanic activity over recent times. Now let’s look at how these, seemingly natural, phenomenon directly or indirectly affect global temperatures. As you can easily see from this graph, Earth’s temperature cools as a direct result of large volcanic eruptions and also heats up as a direct result of large El Nino cycles.
This data confirms climatologist assertions that large volcanic eruptions do alter Earth’s temperature for periods of years even after the eruptions.
This graph shows that, by removing the affects of El Nino from the global temperature data, a large volcanic eruption can actually result in lowering the global temperature by up to .8 degrees centigrade. Now look at what happens when you remove the cooling data that is caused by volcanic eruptions from the same global temperature change data. From all of this data, the conclusion can be drawn that heating of the oceans and volcanic activity affect global temperatures and these temperature fluctuations, in turn, alter global weather patterns.
It is commonly accepted that ocean temperatures are one of the main sources of climate change. There is, however, data to confirm a significant increase in the number of annual tornadoes. Throughout history, prophets from around the world have written about a time such as those we live in today, but more importantly, those that we appear to be moving into.

Someone living in an area that is prone to one or other of these natural disasters will be well aware of the fact, so the most important factor is to be prepared.
The first indication of an earthquake might be a roaring or rumbling sound that gradually grows louder.
The tsunami that hit northeastern Japan following the 11 March earthquake was 15 metres high some areas and it travelled 10 km inland. Tsunamis are not uncommon in Japan and usually there is a limited amount of warning before they hit. Volcanoes are mountains that are characterised by having a crater that opens downwards to a reservoir of molten rock.
Due to their great heat the lava flows are a great fire hazard and in forested areas wildfires often result. Cyclones form out in the ocean and there are distinct hurricane seasons in different parts of the world, lasting for between five and eight months. They often hit the coast with tremendous force causing significant damage, but having hit land, friction slows them down. Most tornadoes are about 250 feet across, have wind speeds of up to 110 mph and blow themselves out after a few miles, but in extreme cases they can be 2 miles across, attain speeds of more than 300 mph and stay on the ground for considerable distances. Although they can occur almost anywhere, the vast majority occur in the US, where the average is about 1,200 a year. It is not easy to escape extreme cold and this can also cause fatalities, especially among the old and chronically sick. In extremely cold weather and in the event of heavy snowfall it is fairly usual for transport to grind to a halt. Coincidentally the number of people drowned in the Dutch flood was almost identical to the number of people who died when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in August 2005.
The golden rules are to drink plenty of fluids, dress in cool clothes and stay in the shade if possible.
These mega-fires as they are sometimes called are mainly caused by humans and are characterised by their massive destruction.
A recent UN report (May 2011) suggests that the growing number of mega-fires around the world may be contributing to global warming. Almost everywhere you look you find references to climate change associate with natural disasters.
It is clear that the world is getting warmer, probably due to a natural process, but it is reasonable to assume that this process is being speeded up by mankind's release into the atmosphere of large amounts of greenhouse gas. It is easy to blame every natural disaster on global warming, but meteorology is not an exact science and while in some cases this blame might be quite justified, in many cases these natural disaster occur for purely natural reasons. When dolphins are 'rescued' in various countries, the car given seems to be ill-considered.

The scenario is similar to that of a figure skater drawing her arms inward during a spin to turn faster on the ice. Cyclone Nargis was a strong tropical cyclone that caused the worst natural disaster in Myanmar's history. NASA Earth Observatory image by Jesse Allen and Robert Simmon, using Landsat 8 data from the USGS Earth Explorer.
Gettysburg AnniversaryWhile satellite imagery shows the current chaos of war in Syria, the site of the Battle of Gettysburg now appears tranquil and pastoral.
Ship Tracks As Iceberg B-31 begins its course through the ocean, ships plow though the waves far to the north. The closer the mass shift during an earthquake is to the equator, the more it will speed up the spinning Earth. The figure axis is the axis around which the Earth's mass is balanced and the north-south axis by about 33 feet (10 meters). Natural disasters, war and other human activities left geographic scars that Landsat satellites viewed from their orbits. In July 2013, Clinton Jenkins, remote sensing scientist at North Carolina State University, received a tip about deforestation near Tamshiyacu in northeastern Peru, reported NASA Earth Observatory. In this NASA image from May of 2013, fresh spring fields cut the land into a jigsaw puzzle, where 160,000 Americans once squared off to cut each other down. Calamities like earthquakes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones have changed the face of the Earth for centuries. The camp opened in 2012 and grew to become Jordan's fourth largest city with approximately 115,000 people by December 2013, according to the United Nations Refugee Agency.
The Haitian government reported that an estimated 316,000 people had died, 300,000 had been injured and 1,000,000 made homeless.
Yes, there are earthly anomalies such as volcanic eruptions that influence temperatures in the short-term (i.e. Below is a brief introduction to the 75min documentary entitled “The Great Global Warming Swindle”. Applying some basic science and understanding of weather formation creates a climate model that quite simple. From this graph, you can further see that there are three major dips in surface temperature between 1800 and about 1920 that do not track with the solar irradiance.
As you can see from this data, the Northern Hemisphere is currently experiencing a greater increase in temperature than the Southern Hemisphere. Notice that the data ends in 2003 as the Heat Content is still increasing exponentially and since 2003, Arctic ice melt appears to be continuing at an exponential rate. Climatologists and farmers alike have relied on these solar cycles to accurately predict everything from storm activity to growing cycles around the world.
This graph does reference to the obvious fact that increases in event reporting may be due to significant improvements in data gathering. This includes: warmer air and ocean temperatures in the Arctic, colder weather and snow in Europe and the Middle East, extreme drought in Australia and many other countries, excessive rain and flooding in yet other countries, an increase in global tornadoes, hail storms and unusual weather throughout North America, and even drying up of the Amazon in South America. And if we assume they are intelligent, then they must at least be aware of the relationship between these weather related incidents and global warming.
Since the start of the global warming scare, geologists, climatologists, and scientists from a variety of fields have been collecting data on virtually anything related to the possible causes of global temperature changes. This image displays the various atmospheric levels between Earth’s surface and the vacuum of space.
This data is interesting as it shows a reverse correlation between temperature changes in the troposphere and stratosphere. By now, you may have already figured this out, but look at how these eruptions have directly influenced temperature in both the troposphere and stratosphere. No, we're not talking about the burning of fossil fuels here, but what we are going to discuss are real events that have measurable affects on global temperatures. Although this is not over significant as an indication of a trend, off to the right hand side of this graph, you can see that the Historical Probability for El Nino and La Nina are virtually the same. Maybe it takes some time before recent data gets published, but like most of the data revolving around natural events that can influence global warming, the data in this graph stops in early 2000.
The following graph display the relationship between Earth’s surface temperature and the affects of large El Nino cycles and large volcanic eruptions combined.
But if you look more closely at this data, you may see something that is even more interesting.
From the following graph, you can see that even one large volcanic eruption can affect global temperature for several years and lower the global temperature by up to .4 degrees centigrade. If you look closely at this graph, you can also see that without the affects of El Nino, global temperature changes would be nominal and there would be no concern over global warming. Some of these weather related events include: sever thunderstorms, altered growing seasons, continental drought, floods, altered rainfall, tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, freak hail storms, etc. Although the below data does show an increase in historic hurricane activity, many climatologist might respond by implying these are statistical anomalies that can be explained. A majority (77%) of the world's tornadoes occur in the United States where they currently number approximately 1,200 annually, however, this was not always the case. Nostradamus, Edgar Casey, the Bible, and numerous other sources have all predicted a time of extreme weather, changing climates, altered growing seasons, global drought, worldwide famine, devastating floods, etc.
If you live in an area that is prone to earthquakes, you might not experience one for a number of years, but they can occur with very little warning.
There might be a rolling sensation that starts out gently but within a second or two becomes very violent. The most destructive of these are generated from large shallow earthquakes with an epicentre or fault line near or on the ocean floor. There are well-rehearsed procedures that are followed when they occur, but the one on 11 March exceeded all previous expectations. Lava flows destroy everything in their path, interrupting watercourses and causing flooding and mudslides, but since they generally move fairly slowly, people can usually get out of their way. They are storms with large low-pressure centres and numerous thunderstorms that produce high winds and heavy rain. Special weather watches are kept during these times and in populated areas there are generally well-rehearsed plans that are put in place when a tropical cyclone approaches. While the winds will abate somewhat, heavy rains will continue and can cause serious flooding. A tornado is a violent, dangerous rotating column of air that is in contact with the surface of the Earth and a cumulonimbus cloud. Without this kind of protection the only hope is to get out of the way or get underneath something strong, like a heavy table. Early in 1953 there was a major natural disaster when serious floods hit countries bordering the North Sea.
In addition to causing illness and significant loss of life, they can have a serious economic effect on transportation, agriculture production, energy and infrastructure.
It is reported that in the 24 years between 1979 and 2003 more people died in the United States of extreme heat than from hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes combined. A UN study reported that in almost every case drought is a major factor that prolonged or exacerbated a blaze. The February 2009 Black Saturday blazes in Australia killed 173 people and completely obliterated several towns.
In its report the Food an Agriculture Organisation (FAO) says that policy makers should improve their monitoring of carbon gas emissions from wildfires to better determine their potential impact on climate change. A UN report on climate change observed that the increase in tropical cyclone intensity was larger than climate models had predicted and the conclusion was drawn that it was more likely than not that there had been some human contribution to increase this intensity. It is also reasonable to assume that these greenhouse gas emissions are having a profound effect on the world's weather.
The whole study of animal society has been based on dogs, cattle and others such as our close relatives. The Earth's figure axis is not the same as its north-south axis in space, which it spins around once every day at a speed of about 1,000 mph (1,604 kph). The Tangshan Earthquake also known as the Great Tangshan Earthquake, was a natural disaster that occurred on July 28, 1976.
NASA Earth Observatory image by Jesse Allen and Robert Simmon, using Landsat data from the U.S. It struck offshore about 231 miles (373 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo and 80 miles (130 km) east of the city of Sendai, and created a massive tsunami that has devastated Japan's northeastern coastal areas. The clouds that formed in the ships' wakes distinguish the routes of the vessels as seen in this NASA image from Jan. The epicenter of the earthquake was near Tangshan in Hebei, People's Republic of China, an industrial city with approximately one million inhabitants. Landsat satellite imagery proved that approximately 100 hectares (247 acres) of forest had been cleared per week. In this image from June 2013, the burn scar left by the inferno mars the Black Forest Reserve and nearby residential areas. These winds emanate from the sun and influences galactic rays that, in turn, energize particles in Earth's atmosphere and create changes in the weather. Note that these three cooling periods are the direct influence from volcanic eruptions during the same periods. It doesn't take a climatologist to see that a trend is developing, but without other cooberating evidence presented throughout this website, this data could still be written off as simply a statistical probability that can reverse at any moment. Whether these anomalies are considered statistical probabilities or not, the fact remains that unusual weather patterns are occurring globally.
This is certainly true as the computer and internet have made data gathering much more efficient. The only real question is whether they will ever realize the relationship between global warming and irradiance from the Sun.
Most of these statistics and graphs are available on government websites such as NOAA or NASA.
The air we breathe is in a layer known as the troposphere which extends from the surface of Earth and up to about 10km. In other words, as temperatures rise on the surface of Earth, temperatures actually get cooler in the upper atmosphere. In other words, the volcanic ash from these eruptions caused lower temperatures on Earth's surface, but actually higher temperatures in the upper atmosphere.
This phenomenon is due to strengthening of the trade winds that increase the flow of colder water along the coast. In other words, throughout historic data gathering, it has been seen that El Nino and La Nina occur equally as often; however, this data only reflects the frequency of these events.

Look at how the volcanic eruptions have actually counter-balanced the affects of El Nino in various periods.
This graph shows that global warming is accelerating more rapidly and is more relevant than we have been told. Depending on how you interpret the following data, there does appear to be a significant increase in the total number of tropical storms annually, a slight increase in the number of tropical storms that qualify as hurricanes, but only a nominal increase the hurricane severity. In fact, until just recently, it was widely acknowledge that the annual number of tornadoes in the US was closer to 700.
We've all read the governments’ explanation on what caused a power grid failure and they're quick to blame it on human error rather than from the Sun or other natural event.
These occur with the minimum amount of warning and include earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis. These are usually the consequence of extreme weather events, or are supplementary to other natural disasters.
Alternatively there might be a violent jerk followed by severe shaking that makes it very difficult to stand up or move from room to room. The sudden vertical displacement generates waves that can travel great distances at high speed. These can be quite modest and result in little more than a trickle, or they can explode with considerable force and be accompanied by lava flows, flattened landscapes, poisonous gases, flying rock and ash.
Following an Icelandic volcanic eruption in 2010, when large clouds of volcanic dust were released into the atmosphere, concern about possible damage to aero engines severely disrupted air traffic in Europe and North America.
Generally they are known as hurricanes, but in the northwest pacific region they are known as typhoons. Although this was America's costliest natural disaster, the deadliest natural disaster in US history was the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 that killed between 6,000 and 12,000 people in Galveston.
Worldwide the peak time for them is 5 pm, but one of deadliest in history, the Gainesville Tornado, occurred at 8.30 am local time. Rivers burst their banks, roads and bridges are washed away and normal communication can become impossible. The Netherlands was particularly badly hit with a tidal surge that reached 5.6 metres in places, completely overwhelming the sea defences. As more people use fans or air conditioning, demand for electricity is pushed to the point where supply companies can no longer cope. Since most shopping malls, public libraries and big stores are air conditioned, if all else fails a trip there might be worth the journey, especially if the bus is also air-conditioned.
Often after many months without rain a single spark is all that is necessary to create an inferno. In 2010 similar fires in Russia killed 62 people and destroyed about 23,000 square kilometres, an area more than half the size of The Netherlands.
Social behaviour undoubtedly began in another mammal group, even if it then became extinct. Each individual on earth needs to act like his personal government and environmental agent, to gain a fuller appreciation of how technology and 'new' thinking can prevent such vast amounts of emissions.
They could even end up in commercial aquarium shows, but they certainly rarely make it back to the sea. The March 11 quake was the largest ever recorded in Japan and is the world's fifth largest earthquake to strike since 1900, according to the USGS. The 1970 Bhola cyclone was a devastating tropical cyclone that struck East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) and India's West Bengal on November 12, 1970.
Pine Island GlacierThe leading edge of the Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica shattered between November 9-11 and created an iceberg 35 kilometers by 20 kilometers (21 by 12 miles), known as B-31, according to the U.S.
It is generally considered the deadliest natural disaster ever recorded, and almost certainly the deadliest of the 20th century and in China.
Up to 500,000 people lost their lives in the storm, primarily as a result of the storm surge that flooded much of the low-lying islands of the Ganges Delta. The battle raged from July 1-3, 1863, leaving approximately 8,000 dead and more than 27,000 wounded.
The chunk of ice may bob around in Pine Island Bay for years, or it may drift out into the oceans surrounding Antarctica, reported NASA.
We will discuss the cooling affects from volcanic eruptions in detail later in this material.
The part of this graph that may have more relevance is in the lower right-hand corner where you can see that from 1990 to 2000 there has been a noticeable increase in the reporting of climate related disasters. They have access to the Antarctic ice core data and would only need a basic understanding of science to realize the possible existence of solar cycles other than “Solar Cycles 1 – 24” that recur over thousands and possibly tens of thousands of years. The next layer is the stratosphere which extends beyond the troposphere and up to about 50km.
El Nino events usually occur every 3 to 7 years, and are characterized by shifts in "normal" weather patterns. In other words, without the surface cooling that occurred from volcanic eruptions, the increase in temperature from El Nino would have been even more severe.
The below graph reveals just how vulnerable our power grids are to weather extremes and other natural disasters.
To be honest, either of these two possible events are just what could trigger Earth to enter it’s next ice age. There will usually be some degree of advanced warning, but since weather is unpredictable, nothing can be done to stop these disasters from developing once the weather system develops. While out in the ocean these waves can be no more than a few centimetres high, but as they approach the shore the waves are compressed and become very much higher.
As a result of this natural disaster the number of people dead or missing is put at around 30,000 and the Japanese economy has suffered a major blow.
A hurricane is defined as having a wind speed in excess of 73 mph (117 kph), but maximum sustained winds in the strongest tropical cyclones have been estimated to reach 195 mph. Aircraft lose lift in extreme temperatures and stress is placed on the cooling systems of the engines of raid and rail vehicles that can lead to an increase in mechanical failure. Investigating such behavioural structures has apparently totally neglected the very obvious, early small mammals that could well have advanced at least to the primate level, and we even left out the small species still here for us to observe. The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was an undersea megathrust earthquake that occurred on December 26, 2004, with an epicentre off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia.
It was the deadliest tropical cyclone ever recorded, and one of the deadliest natural disasters in modern times. The quake killed around 20,000 people, injured another 167,000 and destroyed nearly 400,000 homes. Currents around Antarctica will decide the eventual fate of the newborn glacier (shown here on Nov. Water vapor condenses onto the particles and creates long, thin clouds off the western coast of North America. Therefore, it doesn’t take a climatologist to correlate the relationship between Earth heating up and an increase in atmospheric cloud cover.  Likewise, when Earth cools down, a reverse phenomena occurs and the transitions between heating and cooling creates yet other weather phenomena. As you can see, the ozone layer is contained within the stratosphere and is the layer where most jet traffic resides. Basically, as the Pacific Ocean heats up at the equator, El Nino becomes larger, Earth surface temperatures increase, and weather patterns become more extreme. In other words, since ocean and global temperatures are increasing, it's highly likely that the periods of El Nino are becoming more severe over time while the periods of La Nina are becoming less severe. In fact, this data shows that the volcanic eruptions are actually helping to keep Earth cool and in some cases even reduced, limited, or eliminated the affects of El Nino. The following graph from NOAA shows the dramatic increase in tornado activity over the last 50 years and even more so in the last 15 years. Although this graph still doesn't take into consideration irradiance from the Sun, it does provide a chilling look at our exposure to social disruption. And by the ice core data graph below, it’s an ice age that is imminent rather than just probable. All that can be done is to take appropriate action to limit damage and loss of life after they occur.
They can quickly change direction, which makes it very difficult for someone on the ground to escape. The earthquake was caused by subduction and triggered a series of devastating tsunamis along the coasts of most landmasses bordering the Indian Ocean, killing over 230,000 people in fourteen countries, and inundating coastal communities with waves up to 30 meters (100 feet) high.
However, Iceberg B-31 is roughly 50 percent larger than previous icebergs that have snapped off from the Pine Island Glacier. The government of Haiti also estimated that 250,000 residences and 30,000 commercial buildings had collapsed or were severely damaged. That’s certainly something you don’t hear being discussed when climatologists or the media talk about global warming, but it reveals the fragility of Earth’s climate. The earthquake that occurred in Japan on 11 March 2011 was measured at magnitude 9.0 by the US Geological Survey and was one of the most powerful ever recorded. Hurricane Katrina of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season was the costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the five deadliest hurricanes, in the history of the United States. There were around 55,000 people missing and many other deaths were reported in other towns and areas, although the Burmese government's official death was allegedly underreported.
On the island of Leyte, 315 kilometer- (195 mile-) per-hour winds and a deadly storm surge devastated Talcoban City. The 2011 earthquake and tsunami was a 9.0-magnitude megathrust earthquake off the coast of Japan that occurred 11 March 2011. The number of deaths initially reported by the Chinese government was 655,000, but this number has since been revised to be around 255,000.
Tacloban DestructionThe typhoon seems to have stripped the vegetation from the hills west of the Talcoban City, although some of this may have resulted from deforestation, noted NASA analysts. This cyclone was the sixth cyclonic storm of the 1970 North Indian Ocean cyclone season, and also the season's strongest, reaching a strength equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane. This year marked the 150th anniversary, or seven score and ten years ago, of the battle that inspired President Lincoln's famous speech, the Gettysburg Address. This image shows the glacier as a rift started to form in late October that would eventually result in iceberg B-31.ANALYSIS: CRAACK!
