Hurricane Warning Issued For East Coast Independence Day Weekend

Tyler Durden's picture

As if having to pay the highest price of gas since 2008 for the Independence Day weekend wasn't bad enough, millions of traveling east coasters will now have to deal with what may develop into a hurricane as well, and will certainly result in less than perfect weather conditions as the holiday weekend unrolls.

Presenting Tropical Storm Arthur. According to NBC, a hurricane watch was issued Wednesday for part of North Carolina as the first named tropical storm of the season gathered strength and threatened July Fourth celebrations along the East Coast. Negative impact to Q3 GDP? Still unknown.


The National Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm Arthur was slowly drifting north and becoming better organized, and forecasters said it could become a minor hurricane by Thursday. Overnight, a tropical storm watch was in effect for part of Florida's east coast. The Weather Channel senior meteorologist David Houtz told NBC News that Arthur will likely affect Florida the most on Wednesday, with gusty winds and showers.


And for those wondering how accurate the NOAA has been in its Hurricane forecasts, we present the following Bloomberg data. All we can say is: "better than the Fed"

This country has been in a perpetual hurricane for the last 6 years.... its called hurricane O-Barry

Please oh please oh please let it hit central DC.

Then the Hamptons and the Vineyard. Wash every politician and banker out to sea

Isn't that where every nation dumps its trash?

I am thinking that if I am some starving Orca and Pelosi washes by my snout....I reckon I am gonna wait.

As you should, Orcas don't eat rotten meat.

Actually NOAA just commissioned a new study to figure out why they can't find MORE trash in the ocean.  They're so shocked they're going to dedicate every man woman and child to finding that damned trash that their models said should be floating around in the ocean like big plastic pull-ring icebergs.  

I suggested they grab their geiger counters and head for the Northern Pacific.  They have not responded yet, surprisingly.

Send it straight up the colon of the Potomac like an enema from God.

It looks like it's heading for New York again... better send a taxi down pronto to get all of the gold out of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY's vaults...

WTC 7 took care of that already.

Send a boat, then it can be "lost" in a boating accident.

They still have gold at the FED?

Great negative 2nd qtr GDP will be blamed on the wind.

This is great for the economy from a Keynsian perspective...think of all the jobs that will be created to rebuild all of these houses...and the sad thing is most people will actually agree with that statement since they are all completely brainwashed.

But I dont understand; I thought broken windows were bullish?!  


What we really need is another war.

You are right a civil war... just imagine the GDP growth

And now the wait begins ...

Who will be the first dickhead/troll/conspiracy nutjob to post the 'cause' of Arthur -

HAARP, Global Warming/Climate Change, Chicom submarines in the Gulf, Obummer ??? - bring it on!  Concerned Citizens want to know!

Western Antarctic ice sheet dislodging will cause a geophysical Pole Shift.

Rotational Wobble (Chandler’s). The Crust presents the earth with an unbalanced distribution of weight, even a small (10 centimeters) displacement of the crust would cause the earth to wobble more (which ironically could induce more crustal displacement, thus causing more wobble, thus causing more displacement, etc.) Added bulges from the expansion beneath the crust would worsen the imbalance. The diameter at the equator is 43 kilometres more than the rest of the Earth’s surface, due to centrifugal forces. “In a polar region there is a continual deposition of ice, which is not symmetrically distributed about the pole. The earth’s rotation acts on these asymmetrically deposited masses [of ice], and produces centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal momentum produced in this way will, when it has reached a certain point, produce a movement of the earth’s crust over the rest of the earth’s body, and this will displace the polar regions toward the equator.” A foreword by Prof. Albert Einstein in The Earth’s Shifting Crust by Prof. Charles Hapgood.

Seismic Intensification.
John, The information at the end of your e-mail is especially important about the “humming” noises. These are caused by shifts in the multidimensional electromagnetic pressure pattern on Earth, which gets its ‘directional shift’ from EMF (electromagnetic field)communication between the [Earth] inner core, the sun and other cosmic forces. Of course, this is not broadcasted by NASA, and so-called local officials play ‘dumb’ as to the ‘source’. But essentially, it means a lot of dimensional ‘bending’ is occurring, which is the reason why so many planetary forces are going haywire at this time. Best, Simon CC:
Acoustic Gravity Waves (Checkout online – Dr. Elchin Khalilov)
“In both cases, even though the causes of acoustic-gravity waves are of a quite understandable geophysical nature, they are indicative of the expected significant increase in solar activity and the geodynamic activity of our planet. There is no doubt that processes in the core rule the internal energy of our planet, therefore, we should expect by the end of 2012 a sharp rise in strong earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and extreme weather events with peak levels in 2013 – 2014.” Dr. Elchin Khalilov, a geophysicist and a professor in Azerbaijan. Jan 2012

Pole Shift by John White What will happen during a pole shift. “The ultimate disaster! Enormous tidal waves will roll across the continents as oceans become displaced from their basins. Hurricane winds of hundreds of miles per hour will scour the planet. Earthquakes greater than any ever measured will change the shape of the continents. Volcanoes will pour out huge lava flows, along with poisonous gases and choking ash. Climates will change instantly, and the geography of the globe will be radically altered. If the pole shift is less than a full 180 degrees, the polar ice caps will melt rapidly, raising sea levels, while new icecaps will begin to build. And large numbers of organisms, including the human race, will be decimated or even become extinct, with signs of their existence hidden under thick layers of sediment and debris or at the bottom of newly established seas…”

Biosphere Collapse by John Berbatis
In the past ten years, there has been an exponential melting of the ice sheets and a noticeable disintegration of the ice shelves owing to ‘global warming’. The loss of mass from the underlying Tectonics Plates causes them to ascend (iso-static rebound), and this results in an increase in the intensification and frequency of global seismological activity. The seismic data of the past ten years confirm this conjecture. Furthermore, the ice shelves impede the flow of glaciers and ice sheets into to the oceans; and when the ‘polar regions’ are subjected to unprecedented seismic upheavals, these events will then cause the ice sheets and glaciers to be dislodged en masse into the ocean. This occurrence will then instantly destabilize the earth’s crust weight distribution (isostasy), and so precipitate a ‘crust displacement’ (Mag. 10+), that is, an axis change. The previous subterranean extraction of fossil fuels and water will greatly exacerbate this impending Apocalypse. Currently, the excessive amount of carbon and methane gasses in the atmosphere is causing catastrophic weather conditions, globally – and this situation will rapidly deteriorate into ‘a runaway climate’.

West Antarctic glacier loss: ‘We have passed the point of no return’ (+video) Two studies released Monday signal that five glaciers in West Antarctica are undergoing irreversible decline over the next several hundred years, signaling sea level-rise of nearly four feet. By Pete Spotts, Staff writer / May 12, 2014 The Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica is seen in this undated NASA image. Vast glaciers in West Antarctica seem to be locked in an irreversible thaw linked to global warming that may push up sea levels for centuries, scientists said on May 12, 2014. NASA handout.

Reliable & verrrrry trustwothy.

They've worked great on banking fraud & regulation has been enforced.

You gotta be poe'ing us because even the dumbest Hedgetard knows that puppy has been turned off for some time now...

And as if a few extra microwatts of power in the ionosphere would make diddly squat of a difference...

Colonel Klink's picture

Few microwatts huh, which explains why the facility requires it's own power station.

Once again you're WRONG Felchie!  DUMBASS!

HAARP (the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) in Alaska is now slated to be decommissioned as the US Air Force plans to “initiate divestiture in June 2014,” according to a USAF representative in this KTOO article.

HAARP was officially shut down in early May 2013–during a contractor “regime change“–but one of HAARP’s clients, DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), continued to use the facility for their research into 2014.

Unless someone steps up to pay HAARP’s expenses, the facility will be shut down.

Incidentally, HAARP has been the source of much speculation and conspiracy. A simple Google search for “HAARP” will reveal a number of theories.
