A rare strong tornado ripped through Ibaraki Prefecture in eastern Japan 30 miles northeast of Tokyo on Sunday, killing a teenage boy, injuring 48 people, and damaging or destroying 890 buildings. The tornado carved a path of destruction 15 km long and 500 meters wide, said the Japan Meteorological Agency. The tornado was given a preliminary rating of F-2, with winds of 113 - 157 mph (Japan uses the traditional "F" scale to rate tornadoes, not the "EF" scale used in the U.S.) The tornado also damaged homes in a housing complex in Tsukuba where 20 people from seven families from Fukushima Prefecture had evacuated following the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, caused by the earthquake and tsunami of March 2011. I bet those families are feeling disaster-prone!

Japan's tornado climatology
Tornadoes are rare in Japan, due to the fact the nation is surrounded by ocean, which tends to stabilize the air. Between 1961 - 2010, an average of 15 tornadoes per year hit Japan, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. Only four F-3 tornadoes have hit Japan. The most recent F-3 hit on November 7, 2006, in the Wakasa area of Saroma, Hokkaido. Nine people died and 26 were injured. Over 30 buildings, including a dwelling, warehouses and temporary structures were damaged or destroyed. No violent F-4 or F-5 tornadoes have been recorded in Japan, according the Japan Meteorological Agency, though other sources list a December, 1990 tornado as having been an F-4. Wunderground's weather historian Christopher C. Burt has more details in his latest post, Deadliest Tornadoes. Only one F-2 tornado hit Japan in both 2010 and 2011. A 1997 study published in the Journal of Climate found that Japanese tornadoes occurred most frequently in September and least frequently in March, and that typhoons were responsible for about 20% of all the tornadoes. A list of Asian tornado outbreaks maintained at Wikipedia lists the deadliest Japanese tornado as one on 6 September, 1881, which killed 16 people.

Cool picture but not at all an uncommon site


Not only do winds get easily above 300 mph, for the static electricity will zap any electronics. That's one of the main reasons we can't put a man on mars, if he/she gets hit with a dust devil, then they can pretty much be called dead!!

I saw this on the science channel therefore no link.

In fact, the evidence is that tornaodes may be among the most significnat indicators of meteorological compromise. The fact is that tornadoes have been exploding in number in the U.S. and, apparently, across the globe in recent years. But they've been occurring in increasing numbers for years. It's gotten so that meteorologists are toying with the idea of no longer talking about the total number of tornadoes per year, because the numbers are getting disconcertingly huge, and, instead, talking about "tornado days". That way, they don't have to acknowledge more than 366 such days, rather than the currently close to 2000 tornadoes occurring in just about 8 months.
In fact, there are a number of ways the National Weather Service and other "experts" try to get around admitting the explosion of tornadoes in the recent past. They chart only the "severe" tornadoes of category 3 or more. But category 1 tornadoes can have the power of a hurricane, and those are the ones that are multiplying rapidly. They also, as often as possible, limit available information. Available through the Pklahoma Climatological Survey is a chart that shows the change in tornado numbers since 1900. But the net has no version of this chart bigger than miniscule, since they don't want people to see the truth. Most charts of tornadoes, until a couple of years ago, started at about 1990 at the earliest. This was intended to give the impression that the number is constant from year to year. For a time, they even compared tornado numbers for each year to the average of only the five preceding years! But the numbers began to rise too much and tornadoes began to occur where they were unknown, like Brooklyn. Now, they start many charts at 1950, but no earlier.
The reason they don't go before 1950 is that, if you look at the Oklahoma Climatological Survery chart, you will see that, before about 1952, the number of tornadoes per year in the U.S. was constant at about 180! The average these days is about ten times that! In about 1952, however, tornado numbers began their rise! And that's significant. That's when jets began to be used in large scale fashion. "Chemtrails", the vapor lanes of weather control substances, as part of a government program to promote control of the weather, are left behind by high flying jets. Art Bell first described seeing chemtrails in about 1997 and many take that to be when chemtrails began to be laid. In fact, 1997 was probably when the atmosphere became saturated and new chemicals precipitated out! Chemtrails were probably laid since about 1952! That's when the number of tornadoes began increasing. It should be mentioned that a new species of cloud was recognized recently, likely due to the perverting of the air by chemtrails, the undulatus aspiratus. The last new cloud species to be entered into the International Cloud Atlas was the cirrus introtus. It first began forming around 1950, when jets first started being used widely!
It should be mentioned that there are no shortage of quisling "explanations" for the sudden explosion of tornado numbers. Among the most favored is that the numbers aren't increasing, there was always around 2000 tornadoes per year. It's just that the other weren't seen! For some reason, as many as 1800 tornadoes a year were managing to stay hidden for a century! Shills say there weren't that many people around, but the population of the U.S. only rose about 200% since around 1950, while the number of tornadoes rose 800%! What's more tornadoes are large, they can be seen even by those not near them, they can be seen from the air and, even if they aren't seen, their effects, as in tearing up telephone lines, can be obvious.
As chemtrailing perverts the air more, many different forms of meteorological pheonomena seem destined to occur in forms they never did before, and tornadoes seem one of the most guaranteed occurrences. The corporate controlled "news" media seem to have no interest in dealing with the matter. They, and any others who refuse to address it are uttterly complicit in the theft of human freedom this seems intended to facilitate.

What's up Baha...was it a close election?
Everything's still very much unofficial, but looks like a "landslide" - as many as 30 seats to the opposition. At one point it was rumoured that the outgoing prime minister had lost his own seat, and his win has actually not as yet been confirmed.

So potentially a BIG change. However, tomorrow will tell the tale.

[BTW, this has nothing to do with whether The Bahamas will successfully challenge JA at next Carifta.... that is an issue that transcends politics.... lol]

This afternoon had a few inches of rain. Went to go full screen with my PWS & nnooo, it was down. Base showing a low battery symbol & nothing from outside. Out there the light was on solid, instead of the occasional blink. I love having it on a pole on the eve the house til moments like that, so talked a guy up there to change the batteries, right before dark & in between storms. Base still hasn't picked it up.

Did someone mention COW.....
(and is smog weather?)

LA smog: more cows than cars?

By Scott K. Johnson | Published about 11 hours ago

Much to the chagrin of California tourism promoters, smog is likely one of the things you picture when you think about the city of Los Angeles. The haze of pollutants that often hangs over the region is more than just an eyesore; it's a source of considerable respiratory stress. And where does that air pollution come from? Smokestacks, tailpipes, and cows. You read that right - cows. In fact, a new study estimates that cows contribute at least as much as automobiles.

http://arstechnica.com/science/news/2012/05/la-sm og-more-cows-than-cars.ars


I live about 65 miles East of the L.A. Metro area and this would explain a lot about the conditions here. We are lacking an outlet for the smog when the wind is onshore and we seem to be the source of the cow part of it. How lucky we are here. Sarcasm flag on:

What the heck would State Farm get for their money with them?

I saw Microsoft mentioned in a post a day or so ago. Is there a list of who's who?

Edit: as a State Farm customer noted (reported here):

"I find it quite disturbing that State Farm would send money to a group that is clearly hurting its bottom line. Would the American Lung Association send money to Philip Morris?"

Probably same question: What the heck would AT&T get out of it? They also recently announced they would stop sending these guys money.
