Huge waves hit Chile and Peru
Advertisement5 July 2013 Last updated at 19:41 ET Help Waves as high as 7m (22 ft) have hit parts of Chile and coastal areas are on alert as high winds and tidal currents sweep across parts of South America's coast.

Footage showed huge waves surging onto the streets of Antofagasta in Chile where at least one injury was reported following the dangerous weather.

In Peru, parts of the country's coastline were hit with waves as big as 5m (16 ft) and the weather caused flooded streets in the seaside city of Chimbote.

3 July 2013 Last updated at 14:51 ET Help The first 10 years of the 21st Century were the world's hottest since records began and included unprecedented extremes, according to the World Meteorological Organization.

A report from the organisation says more national temperature records were reported broken between 2001 and 2010 than in previous decades.

The weather is really having extreme changes, at least here in Portugal.

After one of the coldest Springs, we had some hot weather in June (not usual at that time) and now we are having temperatures that we usually only get in August, usually the hottest month.

Today, the meteorological station closest to where I live (some 5 km) had a minimum of 24.3º C at 7:00 and a maximum of 40.7º C at 17:00.

And I don't have air conditioning. :(

This year we were actually cooler until recently  Last year we hit 100F in mid April and had 100 + mrom May 1st to end of August

This year the heat wave came early in July  Temps pushing 117F and staying over 100 overnight. That is killing most of my food crop, though the flowers and trees are handling it. Its also killing me on water bill

We did have a break... thunderstorms started up dropped temps a bit and a few drops of rain... but lightning triggered a fire on Mt Charleston that is out of control still and threatening all those pretty homes up there. So far it is on the Pahrump side but haven't checked yet today

If indeed global warming is ready to trigger the next ice age as Vostok core samples indicate, I would expect severe weather mixups to increase

Ofcourse we can always blame the Cabal playing HAARPs :D

Freak hailstorms dump tons of ice on New Mexico and Alberta, Canada
Posted on July 7, 2013





Quote
July 6, 2013 – NEW MEXICO - A storm dumped inches of hail on Santa Rosa Wednesday evening leaving a lot of ice and damage in its wake. The storm, which moved in from San Miguel County, lasted for about an hour. Thursday morning, Santa Rosa still looked like a winter wonderland from the air. Ice blanketed the streets, parks and rooftops on the Fourth of July, the morning after the storm that dumped 3-6 inches of nickel- to golf-ball-sized hail that accumulated to feet in depth in some places. “It’s funny to see the people at Park Lake all in shorts and stuff and swimming trunks, and in the snow, it seems like,” Horacio Lopez said. Santa Rosa’s fire chief said while he appreciates the moisture during the long-running drought, the storm caused dangerous conditions on roadways. “Some people I talked to were stuck for five to six hours,” Chief Gilbert Romero said. “It’s just really bad, something I’ve never seen in my 50 years of life. I’ve never seen anything like this.” Some of the original stained glass windows, dating back about 100 years, at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church were damaged by the hail. Resulting water damage also forced businesses to close including the Family Dollar as people continued to shovel hail off of roofs. “We’ve just spent the morning here trying to assess our damage,” Mario Trujillo, the owner of the Sun & Sand Restaurant, said. “Just looking at town, it’s just incredible. We’ve heard of carports falling.” Roberta Blea didn’t realize her carport had fallen on all three of her family’s cars until after the storm passed. She said the falling hail was so loud, they couldn’t hear the carport collapsing. “I looked out and it was just raining hail,” Blea told KRQE News 13. “I had never seen that happen. I just never even expected this much destruction. It’s devastating.” Forecasters with the National Weather Service said these types of hail storms aren’t uncommon, but that it’s rare for this to happen before monsoon season starts. –KRQE

TABER, ALBERTA



Quote
TABER, ALBERTA: “There’s still hail sitting around now and it’s like what, noon?” said Gaylene Whitley, surveying her lawn. “It’s still sitting around. It came down in buckets.” For Taber residents, waking up to snow on the lawn is normal in the spring. But waking to snowdrifts in July has the town speechless. Friday evening, large thunderstorms rolled into Taber, with hail covering streets, lawns and sidewalks. Ice pellets blocked storm sewers, flooding residential streets and sending some vehicles floating in the water. “In some spots in town I bet you there was two feet of water on the road. It was a lot of water and hail,” said Taber resident Cody Cook. Taber RCMP say there were no reports of anyone injured, or any major damage to property during the storm. Residents are left with lawns full of mud and leaves, and of course, piles of snow. But five blocks away from these homes, there’s no evidence of a storm at all. Residents in the North end of Taber seem to have been hit the hardest. One home owner said his roof is newly re-shingled, but that didn’t stop the water from coming in. “There’s water pouring in my parent’s house. Through the roof, through the walls, through the light fixtures,” said Cook. Residents say in some areas, water came up to car bumpers. Vehicles stalled trying to break through the hail filled streets, which are now filled with people from the South end of town catching a glimpse of the destruction five minutes away. All streets in Taber are now clear of water, as well as tree branches broken in the storm. –Global News

Toronto Storm 2013 Knocks Out Power, Stops Subways In Canada's Largest City

(VIDEO/PHOTOS/LIVEBLOG)
AP  |  Posted: 07/08/2013 9:53 pm EDT  |  Updated: 07/09/2013 1:20 am EDT


TORONTO (AP) — A severe thunderstorm caused flash flooding in Toronto during the Monday evening rush hour, cutting power to at least 300,000 in Canada's largest city, shutting down subways, and leaving about 1,000 passengers stranded for hours on a commuter train filled with gushing water.
Environment Canada said some parts of the city had been drenched with more than 3.9 inches (10 centimeters) of rain in the evening storm, easily beating the previous one-day rainfall record of 1.4 inches (3.6 centimeters) in 2008.

Scores of Toronto police and firefighters used boats to rescue commuters from a 10-car, double-decker train that stalled in floodwaters that reached up to the lower windows. Murky brown water spilled through the bottom floor of the carriages, sending passengers fleeing to the upper decks. Power was shut off and the windows were opened to provide ventilation.

"There's a full-on river on either side of us... We. Are. Stuck. Hard," passenger Jonah Cait wrote on Twitter.

A Metrolinx spokeswoman told the broadcast news network CP24 that about 1,000 passengers were aboard the train. Rescue workers were pulling weary passengers through the windows about 3 ½ hours after the train got stuck.

Another passenger told CP24 that she could see people clinging to trees after abandoning their cars on a flooded highway alongside the tracks.

All of Toronto's subway service was temporarily halted due to power and signal issues. Some stations were also flooded. Partial service later resumed but large parts of the system were still shut down.

The storm left the downtown core dotted with abandoned vehicles, some sitting in water up to their windows. One woman, in a T-shirt and shorts, dove head-first through the window of her marooned car before wading away in the thigh-deep currents.

Porter Airlines canceled all flights out of the downtown airport due to power outages in the terminal Monday evening. It was not clear how many flights were affected.

As many as 300,000 Toronto Hydro customers lost power. Hydro spokeswoman Tanya Bruckmueller said efforts to restore power to customers might be slowed as night fell.

Another utility, Enersource, said power was cut to about 80 percent of Mississauga, a suburb of 700,000 west of Toronto. By around 10 p.m., only about 50,000 were without power.

Toronto's flash flooding comes two weeks after extensive flooding in Calgary turned parts of the western Canadian city into a lake and forced up to 100,000 Albertans from their homes. Three bodies were recovered during the floods.

Canada is a huge country.  I have never seen a time when from coast to coast there has been torrential downpours and flooding for such a long period of time.  Of course it doesn't stop at the border and much of the US is being flooded also.

Weird or What? as William Shatner would say.

I don't think Haarp or other weather modification is to blame, it is nature at its finest.

Last year at this time it was so dry everyone was praying for rain.  Well careful what you wish for!

China floods trigger landslide that buries 30 peopleHundreds trapped in road tunnel and earthquake memorial destroyed amid heavy rain and high winds in Sichuan province

Associated Press
guardian.co.uk, Wednesday 10 July 2013 10.51 EDT

Flooding in western China, the worst in 50 years for some areas, has triggered a landslide that buried about 30 people, trapped hundreds in a road tunnel and destroyed a high-profile memorial to a devastating 2008 earthquake.

Meanwhile, to the north-east, at least 12 workers were killed when a violent rainstorm caused the collapse of a workshop they were building at a coal mine in Jinzhong. The accident on Tuesday night came amid heavy rain and high winds across a swath of northern China, including the capital, Beijing.

There was no immediate word on the chances of survival for the 30 or so people buried in Wednesday's landslide in the city of Dujiangyan in Sichuan province, but rescue workers with search dogs rushed to the area, the official Xinhua news agency said.

State-run China Central Television said hundreds of people were trapped in a road tunnel between Dujiangyan and Wenchuan – the epicentre of the earthquake five years ago that left 90,000 people dead or missing. Authorities were not able to make contact with the people, the report said.

Mudslides and flooding are common in China's mountainous areas, killing hundreds of people every year. Deforestation has led to soil erosion and made some parts of China prone to mudslides after strong rains.

In nearby Beichuan county, flooding destroyed buildings and wrecked exhibits at a memorial for the 2008 earthquake which left the Beichuan county seat unlivable. The town was abandoned, and 27 sq km(10 sq miles) of ruins were turned into a memorial and museum.

The flooding also caused the collapse of an almost 50-year-old bridge in a neighbouring county, sending six vehicles into the raging waters and leaving 12 people missing.

Since Sunday, flooding in Sichuan has affected 360,000 people, damaging or destroying 300 homes and forcing at least 6,100 emergency evacuations, state media reported.

We left Toronto because it was always raining during the summer...mostly on weekends.  Then the 90-100 F with 80-90% humidity...

Well they are getting rain now  LOTS of rain.  Remember we were talking that the water level was dropping in the great lakes? Problem solved... in fact Lake Ontario is over flowing causing severe flooding never seen in Toronto

The subway tunnels are flooded... the Gotrain that runs along the shore that is the main line of business commuters was flooded out and boats were needed to get the people off the trains.. and then this..

Toronto braces for more rain with severe thunderstorms in forecast

Toronto is bracing for another bout of heavy rain and strong winds mere days after record-breaking rainfall flooded the city.

Environment Canada issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Toronto and much of southern Ontario late Wednesday morning, warning that large hail, damaging winds and more water could begin this afternoon and last into the evening.

Wind gusts of up to 90 km/h are possible, the agency said, along with hail that is 2 centimetres in diameter and heavy downpours up to 50 millimetres an hour.
 
The cleanup continues after flooding at Kipling Station, Wednesday, July 10, 2013.

Meanwhile, thousands of Torontonians continue to feel the effects of Monday’s storm, which dumped a record-breaking 126 millimetres of rain onto the city and left large swaths of downtown flooded.
