West Coast Wildfires are Creating Fire Clouds And “Firenadoes” On A Staggering Scale

independent media network eraoflightdotcomAs wildfires continue to consume massive swathes of California and the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon and Washington, experts have warned that the impacts of the fires are unprecedented and provide a sharp warning of things to come.

In California, no less than 3.1 million acres – almost 5,000 square miles – have burned, an alarming start to a record-shattering fire season that is likely to continue for at least another four months.

And as cities across the West Coast have seen their skies turned an apocalyptic orange and red by the over 85 major fires burning throughout the region, parts of Oregon are experiencing a major drop in air quality that has gone far beyond merely “hazardous,” with implications that remain unknown, reports Grist.

While EPA Air Quality Index (AQI) measures max out at 500, the region surrounding Eugene, Oregon, shot deep into the 700 range, meaning that the ash and fine particulate matter from the wildfires is likely flooding the lungs and even bloodstreams of local residents, fueling the risk of major respiratory and cardiovascular problems.

The suffocating plumes of smoke from the West Coast have even extended over a thousand miles across the North Atlantic ocean to parts of the UK, reports the Daily Mail. On Friday, fire smoke produced hazy skies and an orange glow over parts of Ireland and Britain, with atmospheric physicist Hugo Ricketts noting that “there was definitely a slight red tint to the sun over Manchester.”

The brutal inferno that is expanding across the west coast has seen no precedent in scope and scale in modern history, and experts warn that the resulting environmental changes more than doubles the number of extreme wildfire risks.

At least three of the big wildfires over the past three weeks have produced massive fire tornadoes, according to radar data. Meanwhile, tremendous clouds of ash and smoke are generating lightning as wildfire plumes tower as high up as 10 miles, far above the tornadic thunderstorms that ravage states like Oklahoma and Kansas every spring, reports Washington Post.

The rapidly expanding fires are spawning a number of (literally) breathtaking “fire clouds” or pyrocumulus clouds, according to images from space collected by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellites. NASA refers to pyrocumulonimbus as “the fire breathing dragon of clouds,” and notes that they are created when wind, rain, smoke and fire mix over thousands of burning acres. These thunder clouds are triggered by the heat and moisture kicked into the atmosphere by fires, and the fire clouds also send massive amounts of pollutants into the upper atmosphere.

According to Neil Lareau, a professor of atmospheric sciences in the department of physics at the University of Nevada at Reno, the fire clouds are dramatic indicators of extreme fire behavior which themselves can add explosive energy to the ongoing fires, including lethal fire vortices like tornadoes that can incinerate entire communities and create a deadly hazard for firefighters.

Expressing shock about the massive height of the plumes, Lareau said: “Anecdotally, this is the deepest that I’ve seen … It’s about a solid 10,000 feet higher than we’re typically seeing with the highest of these plumes.”

The extreme height of the clouds is a testament to the incredible spread of the fires and resulting release of heat, he added.

“[That], as well as the large burning area, results in the total amount of heat being injected into the atmosphere just being tremendous,” he said.

The “tremendous plume depth” was made worse by the unsparing heatwave in parts of California, Lareau added. Last weekend, temperatures in the Los Angeles metropolitan region climbed past 121F (49.4C).

“We have a ton of eyes on every fire, looking at every frame, but still, we weren’t seeing these before,” he said, referring to towering fire clouds and numerous fire tornadoes. “And we’re seeing all too much of it right now. It’s rather worrying.”

The terrifying nature of the fires are still extremely foreign and shocking to experts, Lareau noted.

These are still real outlier events,” he said. “The way I’ve been trying to think about it, if it’s a 1 in 100 event, now we have, what, 7,000 fires on the landscape? The opportunity to experience these extremes of fire weather are off the charts right now.”

Lareau hopes that authorities can begin to take the threat posed by the fires more seriously and begin funding ways to collect vital data behind the science of these wildfires as they become increasingly normalized.

“We really need to advance our understanding about what’s going on with the high-end fires,” he said.

  1. About Vladimiro Di Vito

    I, Vladimiro Di Vito have forwarded this message:
    There are more than 40 priests who have died of CODIV-19…… Reading is important.
    Our Lady said to Lucia:
    “Look at my daughter, I show the world what will happen in the years between 2000 and 2020.
    Humanity is not applying the Commandments of God, Our Father.
    Satan is directing the World, creating hatred and discord everywhere.

    Humanity is making deadly weapons, viruses that can destroy the world in an instant. If there is no conversion, half of humanity will be horribly destroyed. The war will begin against Rome, it will hurl itself against religious orders.
    God will allow the event of extreme natural events: hail, cold, water, fire, floods, earthquakes, inclement weather, terrible disasters, with extremely cold winters, which will gradually destroy the Earth;
    these things, however, will begin in the near 2020 year.

    There is still the possibility of salvation and, for those who do not want to believe, to listen to the words of the Holy Mother, who asks to pray.
    “Practice acts of charity and goodness towards the neighbor who needs you, also and especially towards those who do not love you.”
    “Love each other as My Son loved you. That’s why many will survive, but many will die and others will die later.”
    “The punishment that will otherwise come to earth is unimaginable.”

    “Our Lord will harshly punish those who do not believe in anything, even those who will have no time for Him.”
    “I ask everyone to believe in Jesus Christ; God helps the World, but those who do not witness faith and will not be loyal and just will be terribly tried.”
    ” (…) “.
    The curate Agustin, who lives in Fatima, says that Pope Paul VI gave him permission to visit Sister Lucia because being a cloistered nun he could not go out or receive visits. The curate Agustin says that she welcomed him with an open heart and said to him: “‘Curated, Our Lady is very sad, for hardly anyone has been interested in His prophecy of 1917.’ Just as the good people walk down a narrow path in this world, those of evil walk down a wide road, which leads directly to destruction.
    Do you believe me Curato? The punishment will come in a short time.
    Many souls will be lost and many nations will suffer catastrophes; others, if they don’t convert, they’ll even disappear from Earth.
    However, despite the prophecy, if humanity meditates, progresses for good, doing good deeds, the world could still be saved.
    Otherwise, if humanity insists on wickedness, the human world will inevitably be lost.
    Now is the time to introduce the Message of Our Lady of Fatima to your family, friends and their friends, to the whole world.
    Begin to pray, raise your spirits, make penances and sacrifices.
    We are very close to schedule, almost to the last day, because the catastrophe is near.
    As a result of all this, many who do not know will embrace the True Church of Jesus Christ.
    All nations, England, Russia, China, etc…, all Religions, Protestants, Spiritists, Muslims, Buddhists, and Jews, all will return, worship and believe in God, in His envoy Jesus Christ and in the Virgin Mary, His Holy Mother.
    But what should we expect?
    Everywhere we talk about peace and quiet, but the punishment will come!
    This war will destroy everything, darkness will fall on Earth for 72 hours (3 days). Only a third part of Humanity will survive these 72 hours of darkness and terror, while good people begin to live in a new era.
    On a very cold night, 10 minutes before midnight, A BIG TERREMOTO will shake the Earth for 8 hours.
    This will be God’s third signal for those who rule the Earth.
    Those who, close to the Lord and blessed, without a doubt of Faith, will spread this prophetic message of the Holy Mother Mary, announced in Fatima, will not have to fear.
    So, what to do? Pray and ask God for forgiveness!
    Do not leave your home and do not let any strangers in, for only the goodwill not be under the ‘power of evil’ and will survive the catastrophe.
    You must be prepared to remain alive and, like My children, I give you the following directions.
    In the house, close doors and windows and do not talk to anyone who is not in the house.
    Do not be curious about what is happening outside, because this is the wrath of the Lord.
    Light blessed candles because for 3 days no other light will light up.
    The earth’s movement will be so violent that it moves the Earth’s axis (from 23 to 20 degrees); then it will return to its normal position.
    Then the complete and total uncertainty will cover the whole Earth.
    The ‘evil spirit’ will go free, doing much harm to souls who did not want to hear this warning message and who did not want to see themselves, repent and convert.
    May the Christian souls remember to light the Blessed Candles, sanctified on a Sacred Altar with a Crucifix, to communicate with God through His Son, pleading for His infinite Mercy.
    Darkness will descend.
    Then, a Mystic Cross will appear in Heaven, remembering the Precious Blood that the Divine His Son scattered for the Love of Humanity and for our Redemption.
    In the houses, the only light will be given of the Sacred Wax Candles, which once lit should not be extinguished for the 3 days of darkness.
    Everyone will have to keep in the house ACQUA BENEDETTA or SANCTIFICATION, which will have to be scattered throughout the house, especially on doors and windows.
    The Lord will protect the goodness of the chosen.
    In front of the Cross of the Divine Son, raise with devotion to the Virgin Mary, Our SS. Heavenly Mother, the following prayer:
    Those who believe in these Holy Words, taught by Our Lady to the three shepherds, pass on this Holy Message to others too.

    Talk about it with all the people you know now, because there is little time left, even if the Lord’s times are not ours.
    Those who remain silent NOW will be responsible for a large number of souls that will be lost because they did not know.
    When the earth ends in shaking, those who still do not believe in Our Lord… they will peri the way!
    The wind will spread gas everywhere.
    The sun will not rise on that Sabbath.
    Those who survive this catastrophe must not forget that God’s punishment is sacred.
    For no reason will one have to look out to observe, because God does not want any of His Sons to see the punishment reserved for unrepentant sinners.
    This reality is not known when it will take place, but, nevertheless, we must always be ready and serene in our minds!
    All this is written in the Holy Scriptures and the New Testament:
    – St. Luke (Chapter 21, verse 5:11, 12:19, 20:20, 29:33)
    – Letter from S. Paulo (Chapter 3, 8-14).
    – Prophet Isaiah (cap 40 ,1: 5: 9).
    It must be understood that God can allow this to happen.
    The Pope and the Bishops are waiting for another Message that will speak of repentance and prayer.
    Always remember that the Word of God is not a threat, but a warning for the salvation of Humanity, for man always makes time to convert and invoke Divine Mercy, preventing all calamities.
    It is the duty of all believers to make known these holy and maternal revelations of Our Lady of Fatima, so that everyone in the world, learns about them!
    In this way, we will also give the opportunity to the skeptics and disbelievers to know this exhortation, so that they can repent before the great Sabbath.
    We cannot know whether those who will receive these Holy Revelations are believers or non-believers, we certainly know that God, through us, comes where he serves, where he wants, for those who want, beyond all creed or religion.
    Even if you do NOT believe in these Holy Revelations, it spreads the same, so that everyone has the opportunity to know and discern.
    These frightening prophecies may not even come true…
    … it is enough to put into practice the 10 Commandments!
    There are only 10 simple rules that, as God asks, if they are observed by sinners, could lead to forgiveness.
    Sister Lucia died in Coimbra on February 11, 2005.
    As early as the 1920s, Sister Lucia had predicted that this Prophecy would come true after its passing.
    “Believe the gospel and convert …! ” (…)
    To speak to the World of a GOD that for many are the great unknown, we need above all a decisive renewal of the quality of our Faith and our Prayer.
    Little Tower of Babel >>
    ( Peter Bruges the Elder -1563-)
    Today man does not realize that he is chasing various idols, wasting time in chasing futility vanities!
    You too were dead for your faults and sins, in which you once lived, in the manner of this world, following the ‘prince’ of the ‘air powers’, that ‘spirit’ that now operates in rebellious men. >> ( Ef 2,1-2)
    > (Gv 3,36)
    >> (John Paul II)
    Any form of evil, any sin, any cataclysm can be revolutionized, or eradicated, with good works, with charity and justice, making a good triumph, humbly approaching God with the persevering Prayer, consistently testifying to one’s Faith. It’s never too late!
    Fatima: The Third Secret

    1. Maria

      No fear, we are Eternal Beings, We leave here and continue to live else where. We are one with the Source 🔥❤️

    The so called “science” behind these wildfires is called Antifa! This is part of the planned destruction of America from within and has nothing to do with the fake narrative of climate change! They are desperate for taxpayer federal funding to launder as all their once lucrative taxpayer revenue sources are drying up!

    I live in California and I swear those glowing blood red skies are the eeriest thing I’ve ever experienced in all my years living here. It feels oddly biblical like the locusts are soon to follow lol! These are not organic fires! This is well funded destruction just like the riots and burning of cities being enacted by the useful idiots who are of such low character and vibration they will do anything for money! BLM and Antifa are well funded domestic marxist terrorists it has nothing to do with black lives! Wake up people! This is not ok!

    God bless all the people and animals currently being evacuated as the west coast burns! This is the Armageddon programming literally running inside these crazy destructive people’s brains! Mind control! Love you all my friends! 😘

      Tell me Cheri do you know what the word means or what it stands for ? Their is no know original group that is Antifa. The word means person or group opposing fascist political groups.
      It gained new prominence after 2017 White Supremacist United the Right rally in Charlottesville,VA. ( you know the one were the president said their were good people on both sides ). Their are groups that disagree with the right wing protesters but they have other names.Like black lives matter and others. but no group is call antifa.
