Title: Prayer thread for indigenous populations most affected by earth changes
Post by: R.R. Book on February 24, 2018, 07:59:20 AM
For those in Awareness interested in committing time to prayer or meditation for indigenous populations inhabiting lands experiencing the most violent earth changes

Please add to this list as you're able, if this topic interests you.  I'll commit to stop anything that I'm doing at the time to join you in silent prayer for any population that a concern is raised about. 

Am posting Trinidad as the first prayer request on this list, which is intended to be pre-emptive:

Trinidad, though blessed with natural resources, is currently experiencing a tearing of its land mass due to S. American plate tectonic activity, and in addition may subside as the sea level rises.  Hopefully the current dramatic tearing will serve as a warning to the people of Trinidad that will alert them to move to safety in time, and may they be received with welcome wherever they do go. 

Posting a screenshot of recent geological upheaval there, from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbUmn5-vWhg :

Adding the people of southeastern Peru to the list for prayer after Max's post today on the chasms opening up there. 

Summary from Max's link: The earth under the town of Lluto has experienced a landslide and the ground is cracking open, severely enough to warrant evacuating much of the population.  Agriculture in the area is disrupted.  Dozens of homes have disappeared into the ground, and schools in the area are near the location of the geological upheaval. 

Benefits of the area are its elevation (roughly 10,000 to 21,000 feet at its highest peak), which offsets its proximity to the coast.  Other blessings are a hardy, sparse agrarian population and remoteness from urban areas, as well as a mild climate.

May the people of this part of Peru find a way to relocate their community quickly to safer ground in a location or locations that will permit them to continue farming to the extent possible with upcoming earth changes.

Posting photos from the area:  Photo #1 is of a farmer standing in a field of the Incan crop Quinoa, which is farmed by a large cooperative of growers selling to the Quinola Mothergrain company.  Photo #2 is of a woman wearing some of the beautiful knits made from local sheep and alpaca wool, and holding a bag of the cereal that she helped to produce.

Very sad about the geological conditions there, but what an uplifting feeling to see the people with their crops and crafts, and I, too, am wishing them well, and much better times than they are having now.

That was lovely Barb. 

I should mention that one of the odd blessings in the Peruvian event is that the Quinola Mothergrain company actually owns many of the farms on which locals live and produce their grain, and they seem to be conscientious employers, having introduced partial electricity to the area (still no indoor plumbing according to their own website).  So it might behoove the corporation to provide the means to relocate the affected communities and get the next crops planted as soon as possible.

R.R. I agree, that would be a great idea...
I hope the company owners do the right thing...

Adding Papua New Guinea to the prayer list in the wake of the most recent of a long string of large quakes there, reported today by Jim.  There was virtually no time for New Guineans to catch their breath following a prior quake just last week, and The Weather Channel is reporting that the population is severely traumatized.  Aid workers are having trouble getting aid where it is most badly needed, as road infrastructure is damaged.  With the frequency and intensity of quakes, people are afraid to sleep inside their homes.

Wikipedia describes PNG as one of the most diverse places in the world, with 852 languages spoken, but also one of the most rural, with only 18% of the population living in cities.  It is unusual for its unexplored territory, indigenous people remote from contact with the world, and unknown species of plants and animals.  Wiki says that 40% of the people live a completely self-sufficient cashless lifestyle.  Even living primitively, they still have cohesive societies, traditional religion and elementary education for the children, though violence toward women needs to be addressed.  All indigenous groups there are protected by the nation's constitution.  The land is rich in minerals, with 97% of the territory being legally owned by native New Guineans and protected by law from being seized from them for any reason. 

PNG is expected to rise in elevation during the pole shift, and if they can withstand earthquake pressures, may have temperate land in the Aftertime.  May they be helped through this painful period of earth changes, with developed areas perhaps returning to a more traditional style of housing less likely to crush occupants in the wake of violent periods of seismic activity.

We've had several discussions on Town Hall about Venezuela's plight, so am adding the people of that country to the prayer list, especially with Max's latest post here: http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php?topic=6582.msg103492#msg103492

In addition to the irony of an OPEC nation experiencing enforced blackouts, the people of Venezuela are presently suffering numerous other trials, largely caused or exacerbated by the present leadership which has enacted strict currency controls affecting trade, passed unconstitutional laws and used draconian means to enforce them, leaving the people malnourished and waiting in long lines for basic necessities.  Shortages exist on essentials such as toilet paper.  Even peaceful protests are met with violence by the government. 

WSJ reported last May that the average person in Venezuela had lost 20 pounds in 2016 due to food scarcities, and this disturbing story from that website shows graphically the effect on children: https://www.wsj.com/articles/venezuela-is-starving-1493995317

In addition, the possibility exists that water will inundate coastal Venezuela during the same tectonic activity that is currently tearing the nearby islands of Trinidad and Tobago apart, yet it may be difficult for the Venezuelan people to find the energy to move themselves out of harm's way when they are so deficient in calories and repressed. 

May both urban dwelling and coastal Venezuelans be inspired to migrate inland, away from the cities, perhaps heading toward the Amazon Forest with its wealth of natural resources, or upward into the mid-latitude Andes where a mild temperate climate can be found.

Below is an image of a Venezuelan farmer in the Andes, remote from urban unrest and government oppression:

Adding the people of Indonesia to the prayer list:

Flooding and landslides cause thousands to evacuate in Indonesia

5 months ago: 6.3 and 6.7 quakes

Indonesia is home to the world's 4th largest population, and one of the most diverse, representing hundreds of different ethnic groups similarly to PNG.  Literally a national archipelago, Indonesia's population is spread out over just under 13,500 islands according to Wikipedia, which also reports that the country has around 130 active volcanoes. 

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f5/Map_indonesia_volcanoes.gif)

It is also one of the most earthquake-prone places on earth, with roughly a quarter million people killed in the 2004 tsunami and quake that registered a magnitude greater than 9, breaking all records for the longest earthquake duration on earth.  This was followed by a 6.4 quake in 2006 that left around 5,700 dead, tens of thousands injured, and hundreds of thousands homeless.  Total financial losses from just the latter event were estimated to be in the trillions of dollars.

One of Indonesia's major assets also poses a great irony: its vast and sparsely populated rural territory with diverse flora and fauna, mostly undeveloped as populations are drawn instead into cities toward the western end of the archipelago.  The 20th Century migration away from farms and toward urban manufacturing centers was a mixed blessing: it raised many of the poor upward out of poverty, but distanced them from their knowledge of self-sufficiency practices. 

Another of Indonesia's assets is its diversity of energy resources, abundant enough that the nation is among the world's oil exporting countries.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indonesia

Dire predictions exist that Indonesia overall will not fare well in the coming Earth changes, due to subduction of its most populous western islands.  The wealthy classes are predicted by some to evacuate, leaving the poor to fend for themselves. 

May the less upwardly mobile people of Indonesia begin a reverse migration back toward the eastern islands, if not already present there, which offer both crop diversity and greater elevation above sea level. 

Below is a photo of rural Indonesians practicing terraced farming:

Photo from Radio New Zealand

Narrator says around 10:00 that a volcano in Vanuatu has resumed erupting again, belching ash that is crushing houses, causing acid rain, and destroying crops and grazing pasture.  He says that the people are at the point of starvation now.  A Radio New Zealand news article, linked below, states that water supplies are ruined as well.  The same volcano, the Manaro Voui, had also erupted in September of last year, causing the entire population of the island to be evacuated, before being allowed to return home again in October. 

The destruction of crops and water resources is especially worrying for Vanuatu, as these are both in short supply in the first place.  Having a rocky terrain, the maximum amount of land devoted to farming is only 9%, and fresh water scarcity is an ongoing issue. 

(http://ontheworldmap.com/vanuatu/vanuatu-location-on-the-oceania-map.jpg)

Vanuatu is located east of Australia, between New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.  Named New Hebrides until its independence from France and the U.K. in 1980, it is a group of islands forming an archipelago similarly to Indonesia.  Out of 82 islands, 65 are inhabited.

Because the islands are isolated, only a dozen species of wild mammals exist and all of them rare bats, per the World Wildlife Fund ( https://www.worldwildlife.org/ecoregions/aa0126 ).  However, it is a bird paradise, with nearly 80 species, including 30 that exist in no other place.  Reptiles are also present, with crocodiles being hunted, and fish are a major dietary staple.  To offset lack of fauna, residents of the islands have turned to cattle ranching, as well as raising poultry.   

With its highest peak at over 6,000 meters, Vanuatu is situated among the fortunate crescent of islands expected to survive a future deluge.  Other blessings are lush rainforests and abundant rain.  Isolation from most commercial markets has led to near-complete self-sufficiency of the population via a subsistence lifestyle, per Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanuatu ).  Ironically, though school attendance is entirely voluntary, about 3/4 of the population is literate.  The Happy Planet Index ( http://happyplanetindex.org/ ) names Vanuatu as one of the most ecologically efficient countries in the world with a high sense of well-being among the population, who believe that how much one gives away to others is the true mark of wealth.

May the people of Vanuatu replant their crops, many of which are in smaller homestead gardens, and quickly get them under cover to protect them from further volcanic ash damage, either in greenhouses with reinforced or steeply-pitched A-frame roofs or beneath fine-mesh netting.  May they experiment with offsetting the volcanic acid rain by alkalizing the soil using calcium from locally abundant crushed sea shells.  And lastly, may they manage to survive on fish and poultry protein until grasslands and cattle populations can be re-established.

The photos below were taken prior to the two volcanic eruptions:

Adding Puerto Rico to the list for prayer, with thanks to Max for linking an article that brought us up to date on their recovery from the twin impacts of Hurricanes Maria and Irma: http://www.thedailysheeple.com/seven-months-post-hurricane-maria-puerto-rico-hit-with-island-wide-blackouts_042018

A Review of the Impacts of Sequential Hurricanes Irma and Maria:

A Wikipedia article on Hurricane Maria reports that Puerto Ricans entered that twin storm system with an already fragile electrical grid and an inadequate supply of water, 70% of which was tested as being undrinkable to begin with.  While other neighboring islands experienced damage costing in the millions of USD to repair, losses to Puerto Rico were estimated at around 90 billion USD.  Rainfall from the storm far exceeded two feet in some locations, leading to waist-high flood waters that completely trapped some towns.  Roofs were blown off of numerous buildings, and 80% of the agriculture was wiped out.  Coffee crops in particular will require 5-10 years to be restored to a production level of just 15% of prior harvests. 

A month into the aftermath, only half of the sewage treatment plants were functioning, 60,000 homes still needed roofs, and only 7% of the roads were navigable, forcing emergency supply deliveries by helicopter into isolated communities.  Hospitals reopened with spotty generator power.  The spotty power meant that people had to wait in long lines at functioning ATM's to withdraw cash.  By the end of January, 2018 there were still 450,000 residences and businesses without power, with 200,000 still presently affected.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Maria#Puerto_Rico 

An Awkward American Colony:

The Wikipedia article on Puerto Rico refers to that island as being a Commonwealth of the United States.  There are four states in the U.S. which are also Commonwealths, being PA, VA, KY and MA, that are accorded a different set of rights. 

Puerto Ricans find themselves in a legal limbo, with their own American-style Republican system of governance, yet legally subject to U.S. military service, American foreign policy directives, trade restrictions, the fate of the U.S. dollar, and some federal taxes, while without the right to vote in U.S. elections.  Decades of referenda for autonomy have been circumvented by U.S. Congressional legalese, as documented in the same Wiki article.  Furthermore, the article also explains that while only a small percentage of the population is fluent in English, all legal matters are conducted in English, leaving the majority of Puerto Ricans governed at the federal level by rules that must be translated to them.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerto_Rico

Puerto Rico's Strengths and Weaknesses:

Wikipedia continues by saying that Puerto Rico has strong manufacturing capability (when the electrical grid is working), but lacks natural resources on the island, including fuel sources, and must import raw materials.  Puerto Rico is statistically poorer than Mississippi, the poorest U.S. state, but wealthier than other Latin American countries.  The island is heavily in debt, and Slate predicts a Greece-style economic collapse in their future: http://www.slate.com/blogs/moneybox/2017/08/17/puerto_rico_is_heading_for_another_lost_decade.html

Though Puerto Rico has a mild climate outside of hurricane season, agriculture on the island comprises only a tiny percentage of GDP and mainly focuses upon export items such as sugar, coffee, tobacco and citrus fruits.   The majority of the 3.6 million people live in 10 cities on the densely populated land, with only 6% being rural. 

Predictions exist that seismic activity and hurricanes will destroy Puerto Rico in the time surrounding the Pole Shift.  Fortunately vulcanism, which affects numerous other locations in the Caribbean, does not affect that island.

Ahead of the Pole Shift, may Puerto Ricans do what 100,000 did ahead of Hurricane Maria to survive: evacuate, and may they be received with welcome wherever they go.  For those who cannot evacuate as super-storms continue to be the new norm, may Providence be on their side.

Following Jim's news of Kenya today in his Headlines thread
( http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg104502.html#msg104502 ), and news of the giant fissure opening up there, am adding Kenya to the prayer list. 

From Jim:

Floods leave 72 people dead and 211,000 displaced in Kenya - thousands of livestock killed

and from the Fissure thread:
http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6909.msg103452.html#msg103452

In addition to earth changes in Kenya, the nation faces numerous difficulties.  The desert to the northeast is under constant attack by Somalian gangs, while the border with the Indian Ocean to the southeast is the location of child prostitution rings, according to a Wikipedia article on Kenya ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya ).  The most densely populated urban areas lie in the southern half of the nation.  In the southwest corner is the huge Lake Victoria, which would best be avoided as a safe location until seismic activity settles down after the Pole Shift.  The western border with Uganda might also best be avoided due to pervasive violence and corruption.

Urban areas in the southern half of Kenya.

In the northwest is another desert, and the Rift Valley stretches from there to the southernmost border of the country.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Rift_Valley,_Kenya#/media/File:Kenya_Rift_Valley_volcanoes_and_lakes.svg

That leaves Mount Kenya at the center of the country, with its highest peak reaching in excess of 17,000 feet, as the safe location.  A Wikipedia article on Mount Kenya states that the forested long-extinct volcano is rich in water resources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Kenya
(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b2/The_gates_waterfall_mount_kenya.jpg/330px-The_gates_waterfall_mount_kenya.jpg)

The article further explains that the mountain is considered holy by the four agrarian tribes that farm it in a climate which is warm by day and cold at night.

Because of the diversity of climates and topographical features in Kenya, the nation is able to make heavy use of alternative energy, and has invested billions in it:

May those remaining in Kenya during the time leading up to the Pole Shift, either of necessity or by choice, journey to the mountain and take shelter there among the people who claim that it is the habitation of God.

Placing India on the prayer list today in the wake of both natural disasters and in-progress other emergencies unfolding in that country. 

Already one of the world's most populated countries, India has experienced a population explosion in the past two decades, leading it to become numerically, as opposed to proportionately, the nation with the most hunger on earth.  Because the percentage of population experiencing hunger is lower in India than in some other countries also experiencing widespread malnutrition, a quick scanning of food-aid organization publications often shows India left off lists entirely, though the number of people starving there may be many times higher than in some of the smaller nations targeted for aid.
https://www.indiafoodbanking.org/hunger

https://top5ofanything.com/list/09a17b00/Countries-with-the-Most-Hunger

   Country          # Undernourished        %
1    India          190.7 million      10.6%
2    China          150.8 million      15.2%
3    Pakistan        39.6 million      21.7%
4    Ethiopia         32.9 million      35%
5    Bangladesh    26.2 million      16.7%

Causes of Hunger in India:
A Wikipedia article on India explains one of the most glaring ironies of that nation: while it has the 6th largest GDP and the 3rd largest purchasing power parity in the world, many of its citizens are barely consuming enough calories to survive, due in large part to a series of famines.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India

 The same article incorrectly states that famine in India largely ended in the first half of the 20th Century; several famines affecting around a billion people in the aggregate actually occurred in the late 20th Century years of 1966, 1969, 1970, 1972, 1979, 1982, 1983, 1987, 1993 and 2000 ( https://www.mapsofindia.com/my-india/india/drought-in-india-before-and-after-independence ).

Year of drought   Places affected   Number of people affected
1966   Bihar and Orissa   50 million
1969   Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana,
          Karnataka, and Madhya Pradesh   15 million
1970   Bihar and Rajasthan   17.2 million
1972   Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh   50 million
1979   Eastern Rajasthan, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh   200 million
1982   Rajasthan, Punjab, and Himachal Pradesh   100 million
1983   Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Kerala Rajasthan, Karnataka, Bihar and Orissa   100               million
1987   Whole of eastern and northwestern India   300 million
1992   Rajasthan, Orissa, Gujarat, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh   No figures
2000   Rajasthan, Gujarat, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh   More than              100 million

The same article lists major dietary staples as consisting of rice, wheat and lentils, all of which are high in dietary lectins and phytates, which are anti-nutrients preventing the absorption of nutrients in the body.  They are harmless when included as part of a larger diet, but for many in India, these foods comprise the bulk of the diet, and modern laws requiring nutritional fortification were only passed in that country as recently as 2017.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antinutrient

(https://dc-cdn.s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/dc-Cover-btepm97glcvtm4kmaefl0hlob0-20160302001512.Medi.jpeg)

Another Wikipedia article titled "Famine in India" further elaborated that in the 18th-20th Centuries, a series of famines occurred that were due in large part not only to drought, but also to rodents and British colonial mismanagement, which forced a disproportionate amount of Indian land to support export rather than subsistence crops, even with widespread famines in progress.  Much of the Indian population, once weakened by hunger, then became vulnerable to plague and influenza.  No doubt, this policy and its results were at least partly influenced by the Reverend Thomas Malthus' 1798 treatise on how allowing the poor to starve was in their best interests, in spite of centuries of religious teaching to the contrary.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Famine_in_India

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Robert_Malthus

The article continues, adding that an example of modern government mismanagement of agriculture has been in its targeting of funds to areas experiencing adequate rainfall, rather than to drought-stricken regions, which some other publications suggest might have benefited from programs such as reforestation, irrigation and low-interest agricultural loans.

More recently, numerous agricultural losses have been due to a series of catastrophic floods that relentlessly occurred in sequence in 2017, as documented in another Wikipedia article titled "2017 South Asian Floods."  Wiki has five other articles detailing those floods individually, most of which occurred in northern India, affecting 31 million people and destroying 800,000 homes.

In addition, recent articles in the news of potential civil rights encroachments have included border closings, elimination of most cash, and an enforced dependence upon electronic transactions, all of which could interfere with free movement of Indian citizens away from further potential cataclysms. 

Positive assets of the Indian people include knowledge of subsistence farming among rural populations, a strong family ethic, and a rich and ancient spiritual heritage, as well as proximity in the north to the Himalayan Mountains.

Predictions exist that the Indian sub-continent will find itself seismically thrust beneath the Himalayas, flooding the country with tumultuous water from the Indian Ocean that will make even boating unsafe.

May the poor in  India, who cannot afford other means of escape, evacuate to the mountains to the north of that country, where agriculture is challenging but not impossible.  May they be able to afford mules packed with survival gear, and may they exit with dispatch.

Adding Colombia to the prayer list in the wake of the evacuation of 8 municipalities due to a flood-induced rupture of a hydro-electric dam on the Cauca River, which has wiped out homes and caused evacuation orders affecting 120,000 people.
http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,5208.msg104937.html#msg104937

Colombia, the equatorial gateway from Central to South America, is a culturally diverse country that is unusual in that most of its major urban centers are situated in the Andes mountain range, as opposed to being coastal, with the notable exception of Cartagena in the lowlands.  Bogata', for example, is located at more than 8,500' in elevation in a cold climate for being equatorial.  Its temperatures all this week for example range from daytime highs in the low 60's F to nighttime lows in the upper 40's F.

Bogata' as seen from Monserrate Mountain.

Other unusual features include a concentration of 20% of the world's plant species in the relatively small geographical area, and a number of rare species of both animals and plants not found anywhere else on earth.  This may be due to the varied topography and climate of Colombia, with its high mountains, access to both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, grasslands, major river basins, and part of the Amazon Jungle.

The Sapphire-throated hummingbird is one of many species only found in Colombia.

Parts of the country remain glaciated:

Much of what Westerners think of Colombia may have been shaped by the constant commentary about it in the news media during the period of U.S. involvement in on-going low-intensity conflict there, in the name of the War on Communism and the War on Drugs, though partly funded by U.S. corporations such as Chiquita Banana and Coca-Cola.  The War on Drugs experienced both success and failure: major drug cartels were broken up, but  grassroots producers eventually expanded coca production, until the Colombian government altered its policy from one of punishing farmers for a lucrative cash crop to one of subsidizing agricultural alternatives.  Meanwhile, this Wikipedia article says that the reason coca production remains a profitable crop for farmers in Colombia is that the demand is so high for it in the U.S., where one in every six Americans freely admits to having used drugs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illegal_drug_trade_in_Colombia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banana_Wars

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/chiquita-accused-of-funding-colombia-terrorists/

The nation has signed on to a number of free-trade agreements, and has considerable influence especially in the Andean region.  The Wikipedia article on Colombia says it continues to provide relief to Venezuela, while respecting that nation's need to work out its own problems internally, and welcomes immigration by Venezuelans into Colombia.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colombia_trade_agreements

As is true of numerous other South American countries, the Colombian population primarily adheres to the Catholic faith, though all religions are Constitutionally protected.  Life expectancy is nearly 75 years, compared with about 78 years in the U.S.   

Predictions exist that Colombia, with its northern coastal summits in excess of 18,000', will become a key place of refuge for Caribbeans and Panamanians caught in the deluge ( http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx255.htm ).  The majority of cities in Colombia are also located in the northern half of the country, making that area not the ideal safety destination. 

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a9/Colombia-CIA_WFB_Map.png)

In addition, the mountains located off of the Pacific coast to the west are a seismically active part of the Ring of Fire, with several volcanoes.

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/0d/Map_of_major_Colombian_volcanoes.svg/2000px-Map_of_major_Colombian_volcanoes.svg.png)

The eastern border of Colombia comprises the lowlands, and adjoins Venezuela with its dire problems and emigration.  The central portion of the country, around Meta, is known for government corruption and violence.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Macarena,_Meta

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/81/Colombia%2C_administrative_divisions_-_de_-_colored.svg/800px-Colombia%2C_administrative_divisions_-_de_-_colored.svg.png)

To the south would seem to be Colombia's safe locations, toward the protrusion that adjoins northern Peru and Brazil.   South-central and South-east states are far less populated than south-western states, and tend to lean heavily toward small farms owned by indigenous people.  Examples include the states ("departments") of Vaupes and Amazonas, as well as adjacent states to those:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaup%C3%A9s_Department

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazonas_Department

(https://web.archive.org/web/20070814050634im_/http://mitu-vaupes.gov.co/apc-aa-files/35633939313238306233646134613564/link_presewntacioin_3.gif)

May the people of Colombia who have lost their homes in devastating floods, and who may be vulnerable to seismic activity and other threats, consider migrating away from cities in the north and volcanoes in the west, toward the southern provinces where indigenous populations have lived and farmed in and near the Amazon Rainforest for thousands of years.

It would be a good idea now to pray for those in the area of the Hawaiian volcano eruptions and flows.  It sounds as if the stuff being ejected in being flung almost 5 miles into the sky!  Unbelievable.  Must be a monster eruption.  Was totally unaware they can be that powerful.

Then reading in one of the posts today about how helicopter pilots are risking their own lives by flying in to rescue some of the late evacuees.  Scary times and may all the living things escape the lava and falling debris.
Title: Re: Prayer thread for indigenous populations most affected by earth changes
Post by: R.R. Book on May 21, 2018, 07:18:06 AM
I second that prayer request.  Am still trying to wrap my head around the extent of it. 

The Zetas seem silent on this issue right now.  Previous Zeta discussion focused more upon getting to higher ground to avoid a deluge of water.  No one counted on the island cracking open and lava by-passing the volcano craters like this.  http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx039.htm

With the southeastern geothermal / chemical plant predicted to possibly explode when cornered by the lava streak, my question remains: is the rest of the island safe, or do they need to evacuate as well?  There is too much seismic activity in and around the bigger volcanoes there to make me feel credible with a prayer that anticipates this blowing over quickly so that everyone can get on with business as usual.  My gut is telling me that this isn't over yet, and that non-evacuees may need to get out of there, but some in the alternative press are suggesting that Hawaiian officials don't want to alarm the tourism industry.  Evacuees who were preppers have lost everything, and are now forced to start from scratch just as it appears that bulk food prices may be moving out of reach of all but the wealthy soon due to redundant crop failures.

May those Hawaiians who have been forced to evacuate from the southeastern portion of the main island find a welcoming refuge.  May insurance claims, to the extent that policies were underwritten at all in that location, be settled quickly so that the insured may have the resources to secure appropriate property, make necessary amendments to it while still possible, start their gardens, and gather supplies against future famines and shortages.  Special prayers go out for the uninsured or under-insured, who may have been reduced to a lesser ability to control the direction of their future at this point.  Prayers also for emergency personnel who are assisting with helicopter rescues.  Many thanks that no lives have been lost to-date, as of yesterday's news reports, and may that continue to be the case.  Prayers also for affected animals, both wild and domesticated.  May the Comforter be abundantly present at this time.

Placing Burundi on the prayer list in the wake of Jim's report yesterday of devastating flooding there this month, in which nearly 13,000 people and more than 2,100 homes were affected:
http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg104976.html#msg104976

This follows on the heels of a deadly landslide in March and more catastrophic flooding in January that displaced 2,000 people.  Just prior to this, the same location had been hit by a cholera outbreak, per Jim's linked article: https://watchers.news/2018/05/20/two-rivers-overflow-leaving-over-2-100-homes-and-12-900-people-affected-in-gatumba-burundi/

Even before these hardships, Burundi was already listed at the very bottom of the World Happiness Report, with a malnourished and deeply impoverished population:
(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b3/Happiness_score_of_countries_according_to_the_World_Happiness_Report_%282018%29.png/1200px-Happiness_score_of_countries_according_to_the_World_Happiness_Report_%282018%29.png)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Happiness_Report

Wikipedia says that 90% of the Burundi population is engaged in subsistence agriculture, with 50% of its GDP being from agricultural product exports, primarily of coffee.  The majority of the people are also Christian.
(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5d/Karuzi_Burundi_goats.jpg)
Goats for sale in Burundi

Located in the Great Lakes equatorial region of Central Africa, Burundi has an even greater proportion of rural-dwellers than Papua New Guinea, with only 13% living in urban areas.  The country is occupied by three tribes, with the largest by far comprised of the Hutu people, while the Tutsi and Twa clans represent a smaller fraction of the population.  The Twa pygmy people are the least enfranchised of the three tribes, being mobile hunter-gatherers transcending national boundaries, inhabiting pockets of the entire African Great Lakes region and co-existing peacefully with more sedentary farming tribes.  It also is the only tribe with ancient roots in the area.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twa

The other two tribes have a complex social history which Wikipedia says even academics do not fully comprehend, other than to say that they lived in peace until the 1600's, when population growth began to out-run scarce resources.  Essentially, the smaller Tutsi clan was at one time divided into the royal class and the shepherd class, while the more numerous Hutu people were mainly farmers, but could accede to the nobility class and participate in government by acquiring property.  The monarchy was converted to a republic in the 1960's.

Tensions between the tribes came to a head in the early 1970's when the Hutu people formally attempted to secede and the abandoned monarchy attempted to reassert itself, resulting in a bloody civil war that may have killed hundreds of thousands of citizens and made ex-patriots out of several hundred thousand more, for a total loss of perhaps a million individuals.    Several coups and attempted dictatorships occurred in the following quarter-century, until Tanzania and South Africa finally negotiated a peace treaty based upon equality of the tribes, which appears to have been at least partly successful, with short presidential terms of office, greater Hutu representation in the military, and membership in regional trading blocs being the appeasing factors.  Violence against civilians continues to be an issue, as well as grievances over past atrocities that have not been brought to justice. 

Nearly half a million refugees have been repatriated, bringing new property disputes.  Most recently violence has broken out over corruption and failure of the president to honor term limits and step down, leading to another wave of 100,000 refugees fleeing.

Absolutely.

A few months ago, a friend emailed me an article on the "horrible life in Cuba" which proceeded to show how poor many people are and how they don't have modern cars, modern houses, etc., and it seemed basically a slam at any country that has not been converted into a consumer economy, whose sole purpose is to consume resources and feed the monster.

But some years ago I had read that although people appear poor in Cuba, everyone has food and everyone has shoes.  One must remember that when we created that embargo against them years ago for aligning themselves with USSR, one of the things the U.S. did, which it apparently thought was "punishing" Cuba, did the opposite.  Part of the embargo was NPK fertilizers, as well as synthetic pesticides of all kinds.  As a result of that the country basically went organic, although they may not have proudly proclaimed it.  They went without "rescue chemistry" because they had no access to it, and in the process began to grow healthier food.

I do not know if in these times Monsanto has been allowed to gain a foothold (stranglehold actually), and imprison and impoverish farmers there, as they have done in India, but if not, then Cuba might be able to maintain control over their food.  I wish the Cuban people well and hope they continue to grow food without toxic chemistry. 

Yes, MSM certainly can spin tales, can't they?

Following up on Jim's daily report and adding Uganda to the prayer list, as the giant cracks that opened up in Kenya have spread to the Ugandan border, affecting hundreds of homes.  Flooding has also washed away homes recently, and landslides have damaged infrastructure as well.

Quote
Over 300 homes have been destroyed and several people displaced after several big cracks developed following heavy rain in Bupoto Sub County and Namisindwa town council in Namisindwa district, Uganda on May 23, 2018. The fissures in the ground go right through people’s houses, gardens and bridges have been washed away. Like Kenya, Uganda is situated in the valley of the East African Rift, which is in the process of splitting the African Plate into two new separate plates – the Nubian Plate and the Somali Plate. After giant cracks opened up in Kenya, now Uganda has its own cracks. Something big is happening in the region right now

(https://media.giphy.com/media/4GXOzU9UTSnWndK1lL/giphy.gif)

The article goes on to explain that several different continental plates are in the midst of pulling apart at a juncture that appears to have Uganda caught in a "Y"-shaped trap.  Posting a Wikipedia map of the rift location:

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0d/EAfrica.png)
A map of East Africa showing some of the historically active volcanoes (red triangles) and the Afar Triangle (shaded, center)—a triple junction where three plates are pulling away from one another: the Arabian Plate, and the two parts of the African Plate (the Nubian and the Somali) splitting along the East African Rift Zone (USGS).

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/61/Map_of_Great_Rift_Valley.svg/440px-Map_of_Great_Rift_Valley.svg.png)
The Y-shaped rift valley almost completely encompasses Uganda.

Uganda is a nation with borders artificially created by the British in order to maintain an open trade route from the headwaters of the Nile River, which has its source in Uganda, to the Mediterranean Sea.  The country was cobbled together by annexing several sovereign African kingdoms in the region, the largest of which is Buganda in the south, with several million present-day citizens and a constitutional monarchy that has struggled for a large degree of independence from the secular government of Uganda.

Buganda is shaded red on this map

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buganda

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uganda

Wikipedia says that Uganda is militarily active in the surrounding region, second only to the presence of the U.S. military, and maintains a presence in the Congo, Somalia and Sudan, among others.

Topographically, Uganda is primarily a savanna, or grassy subtropical plain lying almost entirely in the Nile basin according to the Wikipedia article on that country.

The capital city, Kampala, is located in the southeastern quadrant where the Buganda Kingdom borders on Lake Victoria, making it technically remote from the land that it governs, as well as geographically separated from its citizens by a kingdom that it only partially governs.  Kampala is one of the fastest-growing cities on the planet, having doubled in population recently in just 12 years.

(http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/46361000/gif/_46361491_uganda_buganda226.gif)

Along the northeast border with Kenya is an extinct caldera mountain range adjacent to the Great Rift Valley, which is also the origination point of the Marburg Virus written about in The Hot Zone.

In the southwestern-most corner is a chain of volcanoes in the Virunga Mountains, and to the west is the Congo with its recent Ebola outbreak.  A Wikipedia article on the East African Rift lists the Virunga Mountains as comprising the westernmost edge of the Rift, along with Lake Edward all the way up the western border to Lake Albert, meaning that the entire western border may be unsafe, though the worst of the rift seems to run to the right of Lake Victoria into Kenya, as we have seen in that article on this thread.

The volcanic Virunga Mountain Range runs through the Congo, Rwanda and Uganda

The north border with Sudan is the home of people on the verge of starvation already, and Zetatalk predicts a desperate wave of emigration of Sudanese to the south into Uganda: http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx285.htm .  In addition, the areas from central Uganda to the northern border with Sudan, and northwestern Uganda, are prone to two different strains of African Sleeping Sickness from the bites of tse-tse flies, and transmission by human contact is also documented:
https://www.bmj.com/content/331/7527/1238

One possible safe location, however, along the border with the Congo is Margherita Peak, the third highest summit in Africa on Mount Stanley in the Rwenzori Mountain Range, with only a small amount of glaciation at the summit:

May the people of Uganda consider migrating away from such looming dangers as the enormous southeastern Lake Victoria and central Lake Kyoga, the eastern border adjacent to the Great Rift Valley in Kenya, and the lower lands bordering the Congo, opting instead to climb in elevation in the Rwenzori Mountain Range, placing them on the far western continental edge of the rift valleys, while aloof from disease, flooding and strife below.

Wikipedia explains that Afghanistan is believed by scientists to have been the ancient habitation of humans as far back as 50,000 years, with a wealth of archeological sites comparable to those in Egypt.  This land of deserts and mountains has been fought over as a strategic and economic gateway between East and West for centuries, with a tiny northeastern portion actually touching China.  This competition that has caught the Afghani people in the middle has ironically been referred to as "The Great Game."

Nearly 100% of Afghanis are at least nominally Muslim, the vast majority adhering to the Sunni branch, with the wife of the President being Christian.  Though the nation is ethnically diverse, its largest population is the Pashtun people, who geographically extend well across the border with Pakistan and even into India.

Afghanistan is a largely rural nation, with 78% of the population living outside of urban areas.  The predominantly agrarian lifestyle, however, does not easily translate into an abundance of food due to the amount of arid land outside the rainy season.  Though billions of dollars of development funds have been directed at the nation, they have primarily been channeled toward other projects than irrigation, which is badly needed in the driest parts of Afghanistan. 

The majority of large cities lie in the eastern 2/3 of the country, especially in the northeast:

No wonder the urban population has congregated in the northeast, with the notable exception of Kandahar: there lies the milder Mediterranean climate, while the remainder of the country experiences extremes associated with mountains and deserts:

The Hindu-Kush mountains in the northeastern part of the country, which comprise the westernmost range of the Himalayas, are seismically active, but the Zetas feel they are pinned down to the plate and will not rip apart.  The foothills extend well into the central part of Afghanistan, spread out like an outstretched hand with mountains forming a thumb and fingers.  The middle of the "hand" is sparsely populated.  It is the limited glacier run-off from these mountains that recharges rivers, watering the valleys below during snow melt.

With no railroads in Afghanistan, one of the main cargo transport methods is barge traffic on the Oxus (a.k.a Amu Darya) River along the northern boundary. 

Safe locations:

The south and eastern provinces bordering along Pakistan comprise a contentious militarized zone called the Durand Line that was artificially created by the British in the 19th Century, dividing much of the borderless Pashtun ethnic community across boundaries.  Subsequent Pakistani governments have sought to define their own borders internally, while outsiders feel bordering nations must be consulted.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durand_Line

The Zetas predict a deadly continental rip between Europe and Asia all along the western boundary of Afghanistan, curving around to include the western half of the northern border, then curving north along the bottom of the Himalayas between Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan ( http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx360.htm ).  That eliminates the entire west, as well as half of the north.  And as discussed above, the main urban population centers are located in the northeast, which is seismically active along with the rest of the Himalayas, with a 7.5 quake in 2015 that proved deadly only in densely populated cities with their masonry structures. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_2015_Hindu_Kush_earthquake

Rural dwellers in the highlands, in contrast, tend to live in either sod structures with thatched roofs, or in canvas yurts, neither of which would be likely to crush occupants.

Quote
A yurt is portable, can be heated in winter and cool in summer, and is a safe dwelling structure during an earthquake.

These facts, coupled with the dire lack of water in the nation resulting in famine and starvation, suggest that the safest plan may be for survivalists to migrate to the extreme northeastern panhandle of Afghanistan in the province of Badakhshan that juts toward China and Tajikistan, in the western Himalayan mountains called the Hindu Kush and the Pamir ranges.  China in recent years has agreed to formalize a written treaty relinquishing Tajikistan's northern portion of this area, and would no longer seem to pose a threat to this largely remote and historically ungovernable territory.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorno-Badakhshan_Autonomous_Region

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/44/Afghanistan_provinces_numbered.png)
Badakhshan is province #1 on this map.

From the panhandle, one has some options. 

1. First would be to remain in the panhandle of Afghanistan, called the Wakhan Corridor, inhabited by the autonomous and borderless Wakhi/Tajik/Pamiri people of Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and Tajikistan.  It is very isolated and rustic:

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f4/Corridoio_del_Vacan.JPG)

Quote
The corridor has been closed to regular traffic for over a century and there is no modern road. There is a rough road from Ishkashim to Sarhad-e Broghil built in the 1960s, but only rough paths beyond.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wakhi_people

Note the wide variety of hair and eye color among these Pamiri children

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/85/Wakhan_Corridor.jpg/680px-Wakhan_Corridor.jpg)
River valleys in the area provide arable land for agriculture, while grassy highlands provide grazing for livestock.

2. Head to the adjacent northern Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region of Tajikistan.  For those who would prefer the company of a village rather than complete pastoral isolation, there is the scenic town of Korugh in the mountains, with a population of 28,000 and an abundance of river water, being at the confluence of two rivers.  As remote as it may be, it happens to boast a rural University, as well as several schools and hospitals.  Temperatures during the year are similar to those here in Pennsylvania, but the climate is much dryer.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khorugh

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6c/Khorog_1.jpg)
The masonry structures in this otherwise charming town replete with resources could be the one big drawback in an earthquake.

3. A third option from the far northeast of Afghanistan or southeastern Tajikistan would be to move still a short distance north into the Alay Mountains
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alay_Mountains

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ea/Alai_Mountains.jpg/560px-Alai_Mountains.jpg)

May the people of Afghanistan consider migrating to the extreme northeastern part of their own country or the adjacent territory directly to the north, away from ongoing strife, drought and famine, and toward the peaceful and autonomous fertile river valleys of the western Himalayas.  May they prepare traditional crush-proof dwelling places to ensure their safety during seismically active periods which will likely continue to affect the entire region.

Placing Guatemala on the prayer list in the wake of Barb's articles on devastation from the explosion of Mt. Fuego.  Jim's Daily Headlines also linked a good article on the event: http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg105217.html#msg105217

Guatemala, which lies between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea just below Mexico, is the most populous country in Central America.  It is now a representative democracy, according to the Wikipedia article on that nation, and in the heart of the Mayan civilization, which in modern times is comprised of 7 different tribes speaking 21 languages.

The Mayan people of Guatemala, who were highly literate, numerate and played organized sports in ancient times, experienced their first genocide when Spanish conquistadors exposed them to new diseases endemic to Europe, for which they had no established immunity.

Guatemala in the 20th Century, according to the article, was ruled by a series of dictatorships backed by the U.S. corporation Chiquita Banana, under its previous name United Fruit Company - the same corporation involved in Colombia and other nearby countries.  It's competitor, Dole Fruit Company, a.k.a. Standard Fruit, was similarly involved in the country's politics.

The Mayans were largely exterminated or forced into exile between 1960 and 1996 in what was termed the Silent Holocaust, involving "extraordinary cruelty" against "mostly unarmed civilians" of between 440 and 620 villages, according to the reports below.  The genocidal campaigns against the Mayan people in the late 20th Century left the majority of indigenous children in the nation without one of their parents, and 25% without both parents.  Other massacres included the Mayan children themselves.

https://www.aaas.org/sites/default/files/migrate/uploads/mos_en.pdf

Police documents of the genocides have been released to family members of those who were murdered and disappeared, and litigation continues in the efforts of the remaining Guatemalan Mayan people to find closure.

Safe Locations:

Because Guatemala is located on a narrow strip of land between seas and is caught in the midst of several seismically active tectonic plates, the Zetas predict total devastation for that country, as for most of the rest of Central America, in spite of beautiful highlands that would be tempting to climb.  They use strong language such as "crushed" and "ground up" to make their point.  In addition, there are 37 volcanoes, with 4 being active.

Two land-based solutions seem to present themselves: migration toward the interior of South America, such as the rural southeastern highlands of Colombia, or migration north into the interior of Mexico, preferably toward the central portion of that nation:

http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx357.htm

http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx063.htm

Quote
Volcanic ash will flow to what is now the south in the Aftertime, so the best bet is to head north of this volcanic belt, into what are now the deserts of Mexico, which will bloom in the Aftertime.

Quote
When the Caribbean Plate is pushed west, and pushed down, this will of course greatly affect those Central American countries on that plate. This includes Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, and as the plate border cuts through central Guatemala, it too is affected. But Mexico is unaffected by the shifting plates. Except for some interference with tides in the Gulf of Mexico, caused by the dissipating tsunami that will course north when waters rebound over the sinking Caribbean Plate, the N American Plate will be relatively unaffected.

Quote
Trauma from magnitude 8 and 9 quakes along the Andes will still strike suddenly, and the crumbling of Central America will likewise be traumatic and strike suddenly for a given location. When two mountain ranges moves closer together, for those in the valley this cannot be anything other than a horrific trauma.

Here is a general guide for where to go in Mexico to avoid vulcanism.

May the people of Guatemala understand the deadly signal from Mt. Fuego that it is time to migrate, either north into interior Mexico or south into interior parts of South America.  May they find locations free from the bloody violence that has claimed the lives of so many of their people, and free from the oppression of coercive central governments, allowing the Mayan people in particular to have a fresh start at expanding their peaceful agrarian civilization once again, brought forward into the Aftertime.

Incredible footage.  It's difficult to watch those people running down the road, and seeing that huge and growing ash cloud looming overhead, knowing the likelihood of their safe escape is low. 

Also very interesting in one of the videos was information that a number of animals, such as duck, dog, cat, etc., were found alive in the same homestead where all the humans had perished.  Still, it is really sad to see the people basically running for their lives from a gigantic ash cloud.

Putting China on the prayer list in the wake of the mass-evacuation of nearly 92,000 people from part of southern China due to flooding, which Jim reported on his Daily Headlines thread:
http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg105671.html#msg105671

Jim's linked article says that the economic loss to that area is $450 billion, including collapsed infrastructure and roughly 14,000 acres of crops ruined.  Another similar scenario had also occurred in the very same location about 6 weeks prior.
https://reliefweb.int/report/china/3-dead-2-missing-guangxi-floods

With almost a fifth of Earth's population residing in China, and with the vast size of that country, this prayer-report will focus upon the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, which the Wikipedia article on that location describes as being highly rural:

Quote
It was given provincial level status during the Yuan dynasty, but even into the 20th century it was considered an open, wild territory.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guangxi

The "autonomous region" status tends to be given to peripheral provinces of China that are extremely remote, lacking in infrastructure, and populated by self-sufficient inhabitants, as we learned previously about the autonomous portion of China bordering upon Afghanistan.  Those regions are Constitutionally accorded additional rights not enjoyed in mainstream China.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomous_administrative_divisions_of_China

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/e9/Guangxi_in_China_%28%2Ball_claims_hatched%29.svg/550px-Guangxi_in_China_%28%2Ball_claims_hatched%29.svg.png)
Remote location of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Map_of_Southeast_Asia.png)
http://www.geographicguide.com/asia/maps/southeast.htm
The Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China borders on Vietnam.

The region was inhabited by non-Chinese tribes collectively known as the Baiyue people, who were spread out over a vast coastal area which included northern Vietnam. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baiyue

Until recently, the main industry in Guangxi was tourism, due to the pristine scenery largely untouched by industrialization, as well as agriculture.  However, the lower wage-scale of the impoverished region, in which the average person earns a little over $6,000 per year, has led to manufacturers in more urban parts of China outsourcing work to the province.

One of the most important agricultural crops is Star Anise (not the same as the spice), an evergreen which is the basis of the anti-viral drug Tamiflu, and 85% of which is grown in Guangxi.  There was a shortage of the phytochemical from Star Anise in 2005 limiting Tamiflu production, and in present time glyphosate from the Roundup ag herbicide kills Star Anise plants and all plants that share that phytochemical pathway, necessitating GMO versions to survive the herbicide unless produced organically.

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/aa/Star_Aniseed_back.jpg/440px-Star_Aniseed_back.jpg)

Guangxi has several moderately-high mountain ranges, with the highest point, Kitten Mountain, reaching just over 7,000 feet in elevation.     
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitten_Mountain

The Zetas predict that Guangxi will have a climate equivalent to southern Canada in the Aftertime - one which has many edible species acclimated to it and capable of sustaining major staple crops.  Tidal bore is the greater concern, with those not at sufficient elevations predicted to drown. 
http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx305.htm

The least populated sub-province ("prefecture") within Guangxi is also the furthest west and one of the furthest inland, being Baise, which is #1 on the map below:

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/55/Guangxi_prfc_map.png)

The largest metropolitan area of Baise is located dead center, leaving the choicest county of refuge within the province being Longlin Various Nationalities Autonomous County to the north, #12 on the map below.  A doubly autonomous county within an autonomous province, it is one of those mostly self-governing far-flung districts made up of a mixture of impoverished ethnic minority farmers with an average annual income of $48 per person.  The various ethnic groups live in harmony with one another, and celebrate a common annual festival marking the beginning of the lunar year. 

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e3/Baise_mcp.png)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longlin_Various_Nationalities_Autonomous_County

The area, like much of that part of the world, is prone to malaria and occupants may benefit from planting wormwood, which has proven in clinical trials to be more effective than quinine against the disease.  Endemic malaria is largely under control, but malaria imported via boaters to coastal areas further south remains an issue.

May the people of the Guangxi Province migrate toward the sparsely populated mountains of the northwest, where the self-sufficient people have farmed for millennia, and prepare for the possible transition from a tropical and sub-tropical climate to a cold temperate one.  May they particularly settle uphill of waterways, away from dams.  May their inter-tribal harmony be blessed as a model of relations in the Aftertime.

Quote
For Japan, there will be no safe place. It is like asking where in a tornado one should stand to avoid the tearing of the wind!

Therefore, the events of this weekend on the island should be taken as an additional wake-up call for the Japanese people to do as their government has ordered millions to do en masse and leave, only without any thought of returning perhaps until the Aftertime.

May the people of Japan seize this opportunity to pack up their families and belongings and heed the warning to escape from harm's way, possibly to the nearby Russian highlands, per this Zeta advice:

It seems that we've been hearing so much of flooding lately, that a severe drought in parts of the world may have received less media focus.  Asking for prayer for affected locations with heartbreaking stories, and these are just a few examples:

Wild horses dying of dehydration in the American Southwest

Scarcity of vegetables in the U.K.

People dying from the heat in Canada, of all places

Livestock having to be slaughtered due to lack of fodder

No rain in southern Sweden since early May

German farmers forced to destroy ruined crops

Wildfires burning in many places, including in the Arctic Circle

Land so parched that it wouldn't be able to absorb rain water

Up-to-date global drought map below from:
http://spei.csic.es/map/maps.html#months=1#month=5#year=2018

May the dry places on earth receive a good soaking now, and regular rains to follow, so that crops in the ground may not be lost, and late summer crops may be grown out to a full harvest in the weeks to come.  May farmers not be forced to give up their land due to bankruptcy.  May they be given courage and the will to continue.  May the public be awakened to the need to lay food aside while it is still financially possible.  May crop losses not put the cost of food out of reach of the poor.

The Greek Alps are called the Pindus range, and they extend into southern Albania at an elevation of between 8,000 and 9,000' above sea level.  They are located here:

Here is a map of villages in the Pindus mountains:
(http://www.eliznik.org.uk/RomaniaHistory/maps/Vlach-Pindus.GIF)

The highest village in the Pindus Alps is Samarina, with its cozy population of 378 people.  The village has a high level of culture, according to the Wikipedia article on that topic, with churches, schools and a library, as well as traditional arts.  It has periodically achieved prosperity in its industries of raising sheep, goats, and cattle, as well as mules for inter-mountain commerce.  One of its most prized arts is the weaving of rugs from the wool of their animals.

The village faithfully celebrates numerous traditions that hold its community together.  One in particular is a counter-clockwise circle dance for which thousands of mountain people gather, ostensibly in veneration of Mary, but perhaps having more ancient roots mirroring other such dances around the world that may commemorate the pole shift, as we have discussed on another thread.

May the people of Greece, who are among those on earth to have suffered in the earliest wave of the Tribulation, take heed that it is time to relocate upward in elevation.  There may they find rest from turmoil, instead taking delight in the landscape and rich culture, as well as in the people of the mountains.

Mary Greeley posted this disturbing short video yesterday:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Baa4n5lUqoI

Lloyd's of London, whose syndicates insured some of the homeowners forced to evacuate their homes on the main island of Hawaii in the encroaching lava, has refused to pay out claim settlements to the insured, even though policies, which cost homeowners thousands of dollars annually, were paid in full.  Though Lloyd's is licensed to provide insurance in the U.S., the state of Hawaii has limited recourse to enforce policy coverage, due to Lloyd's not being specifically licensed in Hawaii.  This essentially amounts to an open breach of contract on the part of that insurer, for which we hope it will be commensurately downgraded in the ratings.

This means that not only have some homeowners in Hawaii lost most of their possessions, they also will likely not have the financial ability to start over with new home ownership, and if they were retirees with their homes paid in full, they may now be forced to come up with monthly funds for rent to a landlord.  Imagine what this would do to a prepping family?

It might behoove all of us to carefully examine our property insurance, if any, to be sure that our policies are underwritten by companies licensed to operate in our own state or country.  In addition, we should be familiar with exclusions and amendments as they may occur.  Opt for "full replacement value" instead of "actual cash value," which really means cash value minus any "depreciation costs" which the insurer will deduct liberally in order to minimize the size of the claim payout.

Look for other insurers to follow suit, placing themselves openly in default, as cataclysms continue to mount up.  Some interesting contract law test-cases may be on the court dockets at some point that will determine to what extent we may be able to rely upon insurance policy contracts in the future. 

If breaches are to be the new norm, then we may find ourselves doing community "barn raisings" instead, as done in the Amish communities:

The Zetas have issued dire warnings that the Japanese people, who have already suffered so intensely, are in for worse to come, both seismically and pyroclastically, and in an entire series rather than as isolated events. 

Quote
For Japan, there will be no safe place. It is like asking where in a tornado one should stand to avoid the tearing of the wind!

Therefore, the events of this weekend on the island should be taken as an additional wake-up call for the Japanese people to do as their government has ordered millions to do en masse and leave, only without any thought of returning perhaps until the Aftertime.

May the people of Japan seize this opportunity to pack up their families and belongings and heed the warning to escape from harm's way, possibly to the nearby Russian highlands, per this Zeta advice:
http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx022.htm

And even in portions of the Russian highlands where agriculture is scarce, the people are enriched by mining gold:

May the people of Japan be received with welcome wherever they do go, and may they at long last find a relatively calm situation  - as calm as can be expected - within which to begin healing from compounded PTSD resulting both from ongoing cataclysms and from the stressful suicide-prone but honorable culture.  May the simpler way of life anticipated in the Aftertime renew the weary spirits of the Japanese people and give them hope for a fresh beginning.

  Five dead, nearly 100,000 displaced by floods in Myanmar (Burma)

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Map_of_Southeast_Asia.png)

Having become independent of Britain in 1948, no sooner had Burma declared itself a democracy than it was taken over by an internal military junta which remained in place until an election in 2010 that officially dissolved the junta, but left it unofficially with some power.  Hundreds of thousands of Burmese have fled the country since the original cabal assumed leadership, largely due to targeted ethnic cleansing and lack of a code of conduct prohibiting soldiers from raping women.  These ethnic tribes are in part troublesome for the government because until recently, they didn't even speak the same language as those in power, according to this linguistic map, in which the capital is in the central portion of the orange area:
(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d5/Ethnolinguistic_map_of_Burma_1972_en.svg/800px-Ethnolinguistic_map_of_Burma_1972_en.svg.png)
Ethno-linguistic map of Burma

A further culture-clash between the elite of Burma and the peasantry lies in the fact that numerous ethnic tribes are interconnected socially, even permitting members of one tribe to "join" another one, rather than being connected by birth.  So to attack one tribe is to attack them all.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kachin_people

According to the Wikipedia article on Burma/Myanmar, the country is wealthy in natural resources, but the wealth is controlled by the government, leaving the ethnic underclass in poverty.  The self-absorbed leadership even built a posh new capital city mostly occupied by government employees, according to the Guardian article linked below. 
https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2015/mar/19/burmas-capital-naypyidaw-post-apocalypse-suburbia-highways-wifi

Prior to autonomy, the wealth of Burma was concentrated in the hands of Europeans.  Much of this wealth was deliberately sabotaged by Britain during the Japanese invasion in WWII.  With the subsequent rise to power of the junta, all industry was nationalized with the notable exception of agriculture.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myanmar

The article further states that the renaming of Burma as "Myanmar" is contested due to having been done arbitrarily by the elite.  To the common people, the name Burma represents their historic homeland.  Most international officials refer to it under the newer name, dealing mostly with the group in power.

Though Burma is a mountainous country, with several mountain ranges running perpendicular to the Himilayas, the Zetas warn of a 40' tsunami deluge that will immerse coastal provinces. 
http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx341.htm

This has happened in the past.  Zetatalk reported on the inundation from a cyclone in 2008 which reportedly killed 200,000 and left a million homeless.

States or provinces of Burma

Kachin State is the highest point in Burma, at over 19,000' elevation at the southern tip of the Himalayas.  It borders on the sparsely populated Tibet Autonomous Region to the north, in which only two people live per square kilometer, and with some fluidity existing on that boundary.  Per written agreement with the Burmese government, Kachin is considered to be an independent frontier province, enjoying additional freedoms and even separate trading relations with the Chinese government.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kachin_State

(http://www.traveladvisorasia.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Myitsone-2.jpg)

Governance in Kachin is by chieftans, and the province legally maintains its own separate army which at times has found the need to assert itself vs. the national government.  Statistically they have held their ground, with Wikipedia documenting an absence of refugees from Kachin State. 

(https://www.mmtimes.com/sites/mmtimes.com/files/styles/mmtimes_ratio_c_normal_detail_image/public/images/mte/2013/661/kachin-event-royal-rose.jpg?itok=iD2Nllcx)

(https://cdn-geo.dayre.me/94YpFRaXasswrxn7rA2Y.jpg)
In addition to being governed by chieftans like the Scottish clans, the Kachin people also wear their own tartans.  One wonders if there could possibly be a connection at such a distance?

Wildlife sanctuaries near the borders of the Kachin State add a buffering layer of protection from populations at lower elevations.

http://www.asterism.info/parks/

The northern mountains enjoy a temperate climate averaging 70oF, in contrast to temps averaging 90o in coastal areas. 

Overall, Burma ranks high in sustainable agriculture due to careful management of the nitrogen cycle.  The main crop produced is rice:

http://factsanddetails.com/southeast-asia/Myanmar/sub5_5d/entry-3050.html

May the people of Burma observe their own history over the past decade and realize that the floods are a signal to move upward in elevation.  May they consider seeking refuge among the remote Kachin tribes that live in harmony with one another, and who are skilled in self-defense, agriculture and natural medicine.  May they do so without delay.

http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg105998.html#msg105998

Now a week later, torrential rains have worsened the situation, which currently stands at 2 more children dead and 1,000 homes badly damaged in Hanoi.  14,000 people are being evacuated.

This photo was posted at noon today by ABC News.

According to the Wikipedia article on that topic, the name Vietnam translates to "southern Baiyue people," the name of the non-Chinese inhabitants of Indochina from two millennia ago.  This is the same borderless population that once occupied the portion of China discussed previously on this thread.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnam

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4eZO7OdvMYo/VjFNomLQRBI/AAAAAAAAAAM/IWi0R6VJ5xo/s1600/SEASIA.jpg)

The country, along with Laos, Cambodia, and a sliver of China, was occupied by France from the 1880's to 1945, in large part to control the lucrative Vietnamese opium trade.  Vietnam was then called French Indochina, until the French were ousted by Japan in the aftermath of WWII.  Vietnam was largely Westernized under French government, with the French language dominating commerce, education, government and media, though in modern times it has been replaced with English.

The Hanoi Opera House (above) and the Presidential Palace are examples of period French architecture remaining in Vietnam as symbols of the Westernization of that country.

In WWII, the involvement of France, Japan and the U.S. all at once disrupted the Vietnamese economy so severely that a deadly famine ensued, killing two million people according to this Wikipedia article:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnamese_Famine_of_1945

Leading into the Vietnam War was a dispute over land reform.  Communist North Vietnam placated the peasantry by taking large tracts of land away from big corporations and re-distributing it to the tenant farmers whose rent had left them with only a third of their produce.  South Vietnam responded with re-education camps for wayward communist peasants that promoted, in not so nice ways, democracy, while ignoring the desire of South Vietnamese peasants for land reform.  The U.S. supported democratic reforms on paper (a Constitution), but initially underestimated the greater popularity of land ownership among rural Vietnamese.  The purpose of U.S. involvement became less clear when it began spraying toxic Agent Orange on the main rice-growing region of South Vietnam, with lasting consequences for the population below.  Eventually, the U.S. realized that for the same amount of USD spent in a single month on the war, the land rented by South Vietnamese peasants could be purchased outright from large land owners, bringing the dispute to a long-awaited ending.  Wikipedia documents that North Vietnam was the victor in the war.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_reform_in_Vietnam

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_Orange

The Zetas warn that Vietnam will no longer exist as a country after the pole shift, due to the violence with which the Pacific will overtake it, with the word "scoured" being used.  This is expected to begin pre-shift as coastal flooding, but become worse as the Tribulation unfolds.  Only a narrow strip in the highlands is expected to remain above water, and flotillas of communal houseboats are suggested as an alternative location.

Areas projected to be underwater in the Aftertime.

For those Vietnamese survivalists who might rather remain in the mountains than build a flotilla, the highest point of elevation in all of Indochina, including Laos and Cambodia, is Mt. Fansipan at over 10,000.'  These highlands are located in the province of Lao Cai, on the border of China, where the population density is only 94 people per square kilometer.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A0o_Cai_Province

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f0/VietnameseProvincesMap.png)
Lo Cai, the province with the highest elevation in Vietnam, is the yellow region at the top of this map.

If one avoids the year-'round chilly climate in the village of San Pa at the highest habitable elevation, and opts to live in one of the more temperate mountain villages, it is possible to enjoy an average temperature of 73oF, with a very comfortable range of 64-82oF.  Additional assets are thick forests, and abundant clean water, minerals, flora and fauna.  Agriculture, forestry and tourism are the main occupations.  Natural caves exist that offer potential shelter, and a national park provides a buffer to the west.

May the people of Vietnam consider the options of moving upward toward Lao Cai, or building a flotilla, or emigrating all together.  May the most recent of many floods give them the impetus to gather their families and belongings and leave the lower elevations behind.  May they be received with welcome wherever they do go.

Posting a follow-up:

While these individual prayer posts may cite the highest elevation possible in each location, some advise that the mid-range mountain latitudes of maybe 5,000' may be better choices due to thinning - or outright disappearance - of the atmosphere during the break-away of any objects visiting earth, and possibly for other reasons.  I don't know whether this would be a permanent or temporary condition.  Of course, the highest altitudes are often ice caps anyway that would preclude settlement.

Follow-up to the prayer post for Japan, in which it was hoped that Russia might welcome Japanese refugees:

Russia is planning to build a bridge that would connect the mainland with Russia's easternmost island, which in turn is expected to build either a tunnel or another bridge to connect up Japan by rail.  One current obstacle being smoothed out is the mismatch between the "Russian Gauge" railway and "Standard Gauge" which Japan uses.  Putin has expressed keen interest in encouraging more human settlement along the eastern border region, which comes at an opportune time in which the Japanese will continue to have a need to emigrate, as we've discussed previously on this thread.

Massive floods kill 6 people, displace 59 100 and affect 1.1 million, Philippines

The website that he linked further stated that another 728,000 people were affected by a monsoon that hit the islands on July 23, just three weeks ago.

(http://www.maps-of-the-world.net/maps/maps-of-asia/maps-of-philippines/detailed-administrative-map-of-philippines.jpg)
The Philippines consist of "about" 7,641 islands located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, according to Wikipedia.
http://www.maps-of-the-world.net/maps/maps-of-asia/maps-of-philippines/detailed-administrative-map-of-philippines.jpg

The Wikipedia article on the Philippines says that this country is predominantly Catholic, having once been a colony of Spain.  Ironically, the basement of one of the churches was where Filipino revolutionaries met to plan their independence from Spanish rule. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barasoain_Church

The Philippines were ceded to the U.S. in the Spanish-American War of 1898, and remained a U.S. possession until after WWII, with a brief interlude of occupation by Japan during the war.  They also celebrate their independence on July 4.  The country functioned as a democracy from 1946-1972, after which Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law.  The head of the Filipino Catholic Church led a rebellion in 1986 which installed the first woman president.  The U.S. retained a military presence in the Philippines until 1992.  The nation maintains diplomatic relations with all of its previous colonizers in the 21st Century, and is an industrialized member of numerous trading blocs.

The Zetas warn that the Philippines are in the cross-hairs of several expected cataclysms that will make most of the archipelago uninhabitable.  While seismic activity "crushes" the islands "accordian"-style, numerous volcanoes such as Mt. Pinatubo will likely be erupting and the seas inundating the coastlines. 
http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx030.htm

A total evacuation may not be necessary though, as there may be adequate elevation in the highest mountains.  Below is an instructive map with lines drawn showing where to go to escape the worst of the sinking due to tectonic plate subduction, which may most affect the southernmost portion of the islands, as well as all of the coastlines.

As the highest peak - among others -  in the Philippines is a volcano, it is important to distinguish which mountains are not subject to vulcanism.  This Wiki page offers at-a-glance data on the difference, highlighting the active volcanoes with a double cross:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mountains_in_the_Philippines

Several of the highest peaks that are non-volcanic, ranging up to 9250' in elevation, are located well-inland in the province of Ifugao, colored solid red on this map:

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/ea/Ph_locator_map_ifugao.png)
The name "Ifugao" translates to mean "people of the hill."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ifugao

There are no cities in Ifugao, and 11 villages traditionally ruled by a council of elders, though a modern governer oversees the province.  Such egalitarian and peaceful governance permitted agriculture to flourish; hence the massive rice paddies that are 2,000 years old.  They are still farmed, and protected as a World Heritage site.

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d6/Batad_rice_terraces_in_Ifugao.jpg/1280px-Batad_rice_terraces_in_Ifugao.jpg)

Of the 11 villages, the two that are tied for least population density are Aguinaldo and Hungduan, each at 93 people per square mile.

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/f6/Ifugao_Labelled_Map.png/435px-Ifugao_Labelled_Map.png)

Conflicts among the Ifugao people were resolved in the most peaceful way possible. Unlike most of the highland plutocracies in the Cordilleras at the time, the Plutocracy of Ifugao had the least conflict with lowland settlers.

The people of Ifugao participate cordially with other Filipinos, Vietnamese and Cambodians in long-standing ritual games of Tug-of-War.  This volume contains 186 pages about Ifugao tribal laws and customs, available as a free online book:

May the people of the Philippines who are determined to remain in their homeland for the duration of the Tribulation move upward in elevation, perhaps choosing to live among the "people of the hill" on the rich farmland whose cultivation dates to antiquity.  May they not be overwhelmed by volcanic ash from other mountains, nor by excessive seismicity.  May their peaceful way of life and diplomatic relations continue as a model in the Aftertime.

Massive floods kill 6 people, displace 59 100 and affect 1.1 million, Philippines

The website that he linked further stated that another 728,000 people were affected by a monsoon that hit the islands on July 23, just three weeks ago.

(http://www.maps-of-the-world.net/maps/maps-of-asia/maps-of-philippines/detailed-administrative-map-of-philippines.jpg)
The Philippines consist of "about" 7,641 islands located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, according to Wikipedia.
http://www.maps-of-the-world.net/maps/maps-of-asia/maps-of-philippines/detailed-administrative-map-of-philippines.jpg

The Wikipedia article on the Philippines says that this country is predominantly Catholic, having once been a colony of Spain.  Ironically, the basement of one of the churches was where Filipino revolutionaries met to plan their independence from Spanish rule. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barasoain_Church

The Philippines were ceded to the U.S. in the Spanish-American War of 1898, and remained a U.S. possession until after WWII, with a brief interlude of occupation by Japan during the war.  They also celebrate their independence on July 4.  The country functioned as a democracy from 1946-1972, after which Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law.  The head of the Filipino Catholic Church led a rebellion in 1986 which installed the first woman president.  The U.S. retained a military presence in the Philippines until 1992.  The nation maintains diplomatic relations with all of its previous colonizers in the 21st Century, and is an industrialized member of numerous trading blocs.

The Zetas warn that the Philippines are in the cross-hairs of several expected cataclysms that will make most of the archipelago uninhabitable.  While seismic activity "crushes" the islands "accordian"-style, numerous volcanoes such as Mt. Pinatubo will likely be erupting and the seas inundating the coastlines. 
http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx030.htm

A total evacuation may not be necessary though, as there may be adequate elevation in the highest mountains.  Below is an instructive map with lines drawn showing where to go to escape the worst of the sinking due to tectonic plate subduction, which may most affect the southernmost portion of the islands, as well as all of the coastlines. 

....

May the people of the Philippines who are determined to remain in their homeland for the duration of the Tribulation move upward in elevation, perhaps choosing to live among the "people of the hill" on the rich farmland whose cultivation dates to antiquity.  May they not be overwhelmed by volcanic ash from other mountains, nor by excessive seismicity.  May their peaceful way of life and diplomatic relations continue as a model in the Aftertime.

Follow-up prayer for India: Various news outlets have raised the refugee count to 800,000 in the wake of recent devastating floods in the southern part of the country. 

May the rains cease for now in the southern portion of India.  May there not be a disease outbreak in the refugee camps.  May the people who have lost their homes escape to higher ground, even if they have to journey on foot.  May those in refugee camps be treated with kindness and protected from loss of their civil rights.

Per Jim's Daily Headlines thread dated yesterday, am placing Sudan on the prayer list.

Quote
Flooding leaves 23 dead, over 70,000 affected in Sudan

(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-_FLGkfFzV0c/TiJZQeNQtGI/AAAAAAAAA_c/WCIQI9vB3Fo/s1600/Map+-+Sudan.png)

Sudan is officially an Islamic nation on the south border of Egypt, and its ancient history is inextricably intertwined with that country, having both at times been ruled by Egypt and even providing the final dynasty of pharoahs which historically ruled over Egypt, before invasion by the Assyrians ended the lengthy Pharaonic period.  Sudan even has its own set of ancient pyramids in the north.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudan

(https://oi.uchicago.edu/sites/oi.uchicago.edu/files/uploads/shared/images/archive/museum/nubia/XO2-Timeline.jpg)
https://oi.uchicago.edu/museum-exhibits/history-ancient-nubiaOLD

In more recent history, Sudan was a possession of Britain until declaring independence in 1956.  Since it became autonomous, Sudan has remained destabilized by a cultural clash between the predominant Arab Muslims and smaller populations of African Christians and Animists, eventually leading to the secession of South Sudan and the North's loss of control of the lucrative southern oil production.  Perhaps this was karmic payback for all the Southern Sudanese once sold into slavery by their northern Arab captors.

Evidence of the ancient heritage of Sudan still exists abundantly, as people descended from the black Nubian civilization to this day occupy land stretching from Luxor, Egypt into Northern Sudan, defying modern borders in spite of recent attempts by factions of the Arab government to exterminate them, as occurred in Darfur.  A good full-length Youtube documentary titled The Eyes and Ears of God is located here:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL61773FC2FF46F738&feature=plcp

A modern-day legend, Dr. Tom Catena of the U.S. has rejected the comforts of life in the West to live among the Hill Nubians, caring for them in the hospital which he runs in spite of bombings by the Arab government:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Catena

(https://shabat.am/img/artpic/113385.jpg)
Dr. Tom marries into the Hill Nubian community that he serves.  In 2015, Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people on earth.

In addition to internal strife, Sudan is plagued with drought outside the rainy season, and consequently, profound hunger.  It is among the top 7 hungriest nations according to the Global Hunger Index:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Hunger_Index

The Zetas predict that the coming darker skies will further impede agricultural production in a nation already starving, leading to even more violence, and further complicating Sudan's survival prospects in the Aftertime.

http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx285.htm

They further suggest that the interior of Africa enjoys high enough elevation above sea level that inundation by sea water during the separation of tectonic plates, as the Great Rift Valley is torn apart, will not be an issue, so drowning is not a major concern. 

(http://www.zetatalk.com/ning/12ju006.gif)
http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx310.htm

As even the mountains in North Sudan have proven not to be safe from aerial bombings by the country's own military, it seems that South Sudan, though not perfect, is the better location for survival.  An additional fact in favor of leaving North Sudan is that it is overwhelmingly a desert.

In spite of being signed-on to the Geneva Conventions, Southern Sudan's human rights record is not much of an improvement over Northern Sudan's, so regardless of the fact that a deluge is not expected to affect the area, survivors of the Pole Shift will need to be aloof from population centers.  Thus a mountain location should be considered. 

Parts of South Sudan are in dire need of water, hence the severity of famine there.  However, the Imatong Mountains receive nearly 5' of precipitation annually.  Though the peak reaches more than 10,000' in elevation, human habitation is mostly below 4,900 feet, making it safer from loss of oxygen in the atmosphere at the time of the Pole Shift.

(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-i7VPJx-8kJg/WPY0Bw38_nI/AAAAAAAAA7I/pzCxl2Ao_HUV7nAI-Ui9lOxEbgjUcnPZwCEw/s1600/P1100487.JPG)

While other portions of South Sudan are suffering from deforestation, the Imatongs, located in Eastern Equatoria State, enjoy dense equatorial rainforests, though subsistence farming has cleared some of it away.  And while the Nile below runs dry in certain locations, the Imatong mountains benefit from numerous year-round rivers.

The Imatong mountain range is primarily located in Ikotos County in the South Sudanese state of Eastern Equatoria.

Here is a free 500-page online book detailing the cultural practices of the Lango people who inhabit the Imatong Mountains, living on both sides of the border with Uganda:

May the bombing cease around the hospital where Dr. Tom is the only surgeon for 750,000 people.  May the people of Sudan, both North and South, escape violence and famine by heading for the remotest hills to the south, where forests are lush and water exists in abundance.  May they practice conservation of the slopes, protecting them from mudslides by learning to terrace their crops.  May the people who have had so little wealth in their lifetime have much in the Aftertime.

Narrator reports that parts of India which have experienced severe flooding recently are now plagued by a wave of rat fever, or leptospirosis, which is suspected of killing dozens of people, with at least 11 deaths from that bacterial contamination of the water confirmed.

The bacteria is spread when rats and other animals either urinate in flood waters or drown in them, releasing the microbe which then can enter the eyes and small cuts in the skin of humans.  Typhoid and cholera outbreaks can also be spread under the same conditions, and penicillin is given as a preventive measure when possible.

Per this entry on Jim's Daily Headlines thread dated yesterday, am placing North Korea, as well as South Korea on the prayer list:

151 dead or missing, tens of thousands displaced as major floods hit North Korea after 'unprecedented' drought
https://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg106644.html#msg106644

The Watchers article which Jim linked specifies that 58,000 people have been forced from their homes by the flooding, which also damaged schools and medical facilities.  The people are without safe drinking water, while farmland, which had been baked hard over the drought-stricken summer, has been washed away. 
https://watchers.news/2018/09/05/151-dead-or-missing-tens-of-thousands-displaced-as-major-floods-hit-north-korea-after-unprecedented-drought/

This Youtube channel expresses concern that there is a dearth of information about the plight of North Korea reported by MSM:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSvdq0YYLy8

North Korea, a Socialist nation once united with South Korea until the end of WWII, found itself occupied by Japan during the war, and by Russia afterward according to the Wikipedia article on that country.  The Korean war which followed concluded with a ceasefire but no formal treaty.  Both North and South Korea are member states of the U.N., and both have nuclear technology, while North Korea's atomic weapons program is more developed.  The separation of the two powers does have significant historic precedent, as they were two different kingdoms a millennium ago.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Korea

(https://www.wpmap.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/korn-MMAP-md.png)

The Zetas refer to the Koreas as one geographical unit, noting that the peninsula tip occupied by South Korea will be at greater risk of inundation, with few being expected to survive.  They further caution that numerous inland locations even at higher elevation will be under water, so that leaves the central mountains of North Korea as the best proximate hope for refuge.  Fortunately, earlier this year the two Koreas began engaging in formal peace talks, which may lead to border fluidity in time for southerners to make their way north.

Luckily, North Korea is largely covered by mountains, with the range furthest from the coastlines being the centrally-located Rangrim Mountains which peak at over 7,700' above sea level.  These mountains have abundant water resources, and are sparsely populated, with the majority of North Koreans living in the plains below.  A variety of woodland game is available to those survivalists willing to brave the cold plateau climate.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaema_Plateau

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b8/Provinces_of_North_Korea_Txt.PNG)
Kanggye / Changang Province is the furthest province from the coastlines of North Korea.

The Rangrim Mountains are located in Rangrim County of Kanggye / Changang Province, a county in which the lowest point above sea level is in excess of 3,200,' affording significant loft above other non-volcanic portions of North Korea.  As cold as winters are there, the growing season is similar in length to the Northeastern U.S., allowing potatoes, corn, barley and wheat to be grown, as well as unlimited game hunting. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rangrim_County

(https://www.24point0.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/North-Korea-province-map-North-Korea-editable-map-North-Korea-Changang-province-map.jpg)
Rangrim County is centrally located in the highest mountains of Kanggye / Changang Province.  It is shown toward the right side of this province map.  The Korean word for the county means "wolf forest."

Photography of the rugged Rangrim Mountain range is virtually non-existent, but here is the mountain city of Manpo located a short distance to the north in the same Province:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manpo

May the rain in the affected part of North Korea cease for now, and may an outbreak of water-borne illness among North Korean refugees be averted.  May the scale of the flooding serve as an alert to survivalists in that country, as well as in South Korea, that it is time to head away from coastal areas and move upward in elevation toward the continental mainland.  May peace overtures between the two Koreas genuinely prosper and pave the way for greater cross-border mobility for South Koreans.

Following-up on Jim's Daily Headlines thread report today of 100 dead in Nigeria flood:
https://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg106882.html#msg106882

The link that Jim provided said that as of today, water levels were continuing to rise, and are presently at the 36' mark above flood stage.  Thousands of people have been displaced from their homes, and large tracts of farmland have been destroyed.
https://watchers.news/2018/09/18/more-than-100-people-killed-after-widespread-flooding-hits-nigeria/

(https://d16akly8855cs7.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/10171444/Nigeria-Map-Wikipedia.png)

The Wikipedia article on Nigeria explains that Nigeria was originally inhabited by numerous tribes which were artificially divided by the British into two kingdoms that united upon declaring independence: the northern Islamic and the southern tribal state.  The nation struggled in the latter half of the 20th Century for political stability, and appears just recently to have achieved it.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigeria

Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa, and about equally balanced between Christians and Muslims, though 500 ethnicities and languages exist.  While it ranks low in development, it is an oil producer and an emerging regional power with a half-trillion $ GDP and a low debt ratio, making that country more solvent than some developed countries.  It is a member of the International Criminal Court, though its own human rights record is imperfect.  It also possesses its own stock exchange.

Unfortunately, although Britain had outlawed its own slave trade in 1807, Nigeria continued to have the dubious distinction of having had the largest slave trade in the world, with 2 million remaining in captivity around the Mediterranean decades after the Emancipation Proclamation in the U.S.  Previously, those unlucky enough to be ensnared were mostly sold to Europe, North Africa and America.  The captors were either northern Muslims or fellow-southern blacks.  The victims were mostly of the large coastal Yoruba tribe, often betrayed by their own high priest called the Ibini, who likely was financially involved in the slave trade himself, and whose method of breaking the spirits of his enslaved compatriots prior to sale was simply draconian:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibini_Ukpabi

Britain's non-interference policy with regard to Muslim cultures left an odd cultural mismatch which allowed Islamic northern Nigeria to continue its slave trade well into the 20th Century long after southern Nigeria had abolished it.

Though largely Monotheistic and formally educated now, here is a chart detailing how the Yoruba people's faith spread around the world in syncretic forms:

The smaller indigenous tribes to the east eventually came together as the Igbo people in a peaceful system in which monarchs practice servant-leadership and accountability to populist advisors.  In spite of this, the Igbo are the demographic that have suffered the most hunger and disease in the modern era.

The Zetas predict severe hurricanes and flooding in the south and along the coast to the west, as well as tidal bore up the rivers.  Migration eastward and upward, to the greatest extent possible, is advised.  Because the northeast is a desert and the southern tip doesn't extend inland far enough for safety, the central portion of the eastern boundary of Nigeria appears to be the safe location.

At nearly 8,000' in elevation and nearly 600 miles inland, Chappal Waddi is the highest point in the entire region, satisfying the advice to move in and up.  It is located in the state of Taraba on the border of Cameroon, with which southern Nigeria enjoys a close diplomatic relationship. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chappal_Waddi

Chappal Waddi is part of the Mambilla Plateau, and is located in Sardauna County of Taraba State.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sardauna,_Nigeria

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mambilla_Plateau

Chappal Waddi has been inhabited by the same Bantu-speaking tribes for 4,000 years.  It is a temperate location which reaches a maximum of 77o degrees F, in spite of being equatorial.  Though windy at that altitude, the mountains enjoy rain throughout the long growing season, and then dry winters.  And there are no mosquitoes or Tse-Tse flies, unlike elsewhere in the region. 

(https://cdn.britannica.com/s:700x450/98/5098-004-50D27FF0.jpg)

Farming on the Chappal Waddi includes the raising of cattle and numerous crops.

May the people of Nigeria take heed from the catastrophic floods that it is time to seek higher ground.  May they gather their families and remove themselves from the dangers below in order to settle among the Bantu-speaking communities with their ancient agrarian ties to Chappal Waddi.  May the coming pole shift in some way provide a cleansing of the trauma of slavery from the land, and may bloodlines that descend from slaves be the ones to govern in the Aftertime.

Placing Ghana on the prayer list in response to Jim's Daily Headlines thread posted on Friday:
https://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg106945.html#msg106945

The article that he linked states that though the area had experienced several weeks of torrential rain, the displacement of as many as 100,000 people was actually triggered by a sequence of water releases from a dam upstream across the border in Burkina Faso.
https://watchers.news/2018/09/21/ghana-flood-september-2018/

(https://germantownpres.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/77/2017/08/Ghana-Africa-map-300x300.gif)

According to Wikipedia, Ghana was known first as the Portuguese Gold Coast, then the Dutch/Swedish/Danish/Norwegian/German Gold Coast, and finally as the British Gold Coast during the colonial period, until independence was achieved in 1957.  Since then, the predominantly Christianized, largely Charismatic nation has become a regional power in its own right, technologically advanced with its own space satellite program and motion picture industry.  Progressively, and likely deeply rooted in the country's culture, the government has its own institute and outpatient clinic for the study of herbal medicine.  Also progressive are its universal health care and civil rights.

As is common with developed nations, the proportion of agriculture in Ghana's GDP is relatively low with the major exception of cocoa bean production.  With the blessings of technology unfortunately often comes loss of touch with the land, but the nation is blessed with coastal fishing waters to help make up for it.

One group's Kente Cloth pattern.

In Ghana, each ethnic group is identified by its own cloth weave and colors, known as Kente, much like the tartans of the clan system in Scotland.  Additionally, cloth may be decorated with glyphs representing various proverbs, historic events, plants and concepts.  The motifs, dating to the 13th Century, are called Adinkra.  More information about it is located here:

I especially like the one that means "By God's grace, all will be well" in these troubled times.

The Zetas' concerns about Ghana mirror those of Nigeria: A pole shift deluge is expected that will create unprecedented tidal bore upriver; hence the recommendation to move inland by several hundred miles and upward in elevation.
http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfx260.htm

To meet those parameters, it would be necessary to avoid east-central Ghana, with Lake Volta, the largest man-made reservoir in the world, being located there.  Even the highest hills in Ghana are only 3,000' in elevation and very near the coast, with the neighboring countries also having relatively flat lands.  Therefore, it may be necessary for survivalists in Ghana to make the journey to Chappal Waddi in Nigeria in order to reach the nearest high peak that is sufficiently inland. 

(http://www.maps-world.net/images/map-west-africa.jpg)
The shortest distance between Ghana and Mt. Chappal Waddi in Nigeria is 760 miles.

That could prove to be a challenge to Ghanaians, who are accustomed to a middle-class standard of living - one of the highest in Africa - to let go of their material comforts and learn to live with those in Nigeria who are land-rich and cash-poor.  However, their existing positive diplomatic relations with other African nations may be an aid, as well as any transportable wealth in the form of goods that they might be able to carry with them as gifts to their mountain hosts.  That, plus a willingness to learn subsistence agriculture, at least until the pole shift inundations settle down and it is safe to return home to Ghana.

May the people of Ghana realize that they are in danger, not only from their own Atlantic Coast and massive inland reservoir, but also from the dammed waters of Burkina Faso above them.  May there be those among the Ghanaian survivalists with linguistic skills and diplomatic inroads to the Bantu-speaking people of Nigeria, or to another safe location.  May they be willing to let go of their relative material prosperity, a difficult thing to do, and embrace a different kind of wealth.  May they be received with warm welcome by their hosts, wherever they do go.

Fascinating about the beautiful varieties of Kente cloth.

And one would have to wonder how many Ghanians live right on or near the coast, and are they tsunami-savvy?

My understanding is that there is a lot of development along the coast, especially in Accra and Tema, due to the historic gold trade with European ships.  Not sure about their tsunami-preparedness, but the recent flooding of the Volta may get them thinking about it...

Adding Yemen to the prayer thread as millions are facing starvation there due to civil war right now.  Since this is a man-made disaster rather than a natural event which Yemeni survivalists could simply move away from, am just posting a link about the dire situation, as the photos are very disturbing:

Last week, Jim reported that numerous people were killed and thousands displaced by flooding in Sri Lanka:
https://planetxtownhall.com/index.php/topic,6805.msg107259.html#msg107259

That country, formerly Ceylon under British rule until gaining independence in 1948, is the tear-dropped shape island off the southern tip of India:
(http://www.alearningfamily.com/main/wp-content/uploads/IndiaPolitical.jpg)

Sri Lanka has only just recently, as of 2009, resolved a decades-old civil war, though it has long held a seat at the table of numerous international organizations, per the Wikipedia article on that subject:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sri_Lanka

The civil war in that country had been briefly set aside shortly before 35,000 people in Sri Lanka lost their lives to the December, 2004 tsunami.

Though not one of the wealthiest nations of the world, it is one of the most charitable, according to the World Giving Index.  In addition the Human Development Index gives Sri Lanka a relatively high rating, on par with Mexico and China.  Please see light green portion of the map below for comparison:
(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/62/2018_HDI.svg/430px-2018_HDI.svg.png)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Development_Index

With assistance from China, Sri Lanka launched its first satellite into space in 2012.

The country is multi-ethnic, tracing its history back as far as 500,000 years.  While Buddhism is legally recognized as holding a special status as part of the national heritage, freedom of religion is practiced. 

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/e8/Vedda_man_and_child%2C_Sri_Lanka.jpg/405px-Vedda_man_and_child%2C_Sri_Lanka.jpg)
The indigenous Vedda tribe, otherwise known as the Forest People, are believed to be a remnant of the earliest inhabitants of the island.

The Zetas warn that Sri Lanka, like numerous other locations in the Indian Ocean, may be subject to subsidence:

Quote
Sri Lanka, an island on the southern tip of India, likewise admit sinking, calling this “subsidence”, “earth sinking” or just admitting the sea water is rolling inland...

The populace of India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka will drown, and the countries on the Sunda Plate in harm’s way when the compressing Pacific pours water past the island nations on its way to the Indian Ocean.
https://www.zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue323.htm

Quote
...the floor of the Coral Sea will flex up when the plate is tilting again, then relax somewhat as the magma fills in and again supports the void, then straighten out as the bend point between Australia and India allows Sri Lanka to drop, then disburses and redistributes the magma under the Coral Sea which now has once again changed shape.

Quote
SE Asia is losing land, the coastline of Viet Nam is receding, and land on the India plate, such as on the coast of Sri Lanka, is melting into the sea...

Sri Lanka: Kalpitiya Islands are Sinking
June 10, 2012
http://www.sundaytimes.lk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=20186
    Kalpitiya, the peninsula which separates the Puttlam lagoon from the Indian Ocean sits picturesquely bordering the north western coastal beach. With its 20 surrounding islands it is a beautiful stretch of land. Unfortunately, some of these islands have gradually begun sinking in the face of sea erosion. Wella, Palliyawatte and Battalangunduwa, with about 1,000 families settled on them and are among those which have begun sinking.

The Zetas have indeed warned that taking to boats will be a survival necessity in many parts of the world.
http://www.zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue299.htm

Centrally located Mount Pedro, at 8,281' in elevation, may offer an alternative to houseboat living.  The very peak of that mountain is occupied by a military base that is off-limits to the public, but at over 6,100' up is a municipality called Nuwara Eliya ("The City of Light") with a population of 27,000. 

Numerous smaller agrarian communities exist in the rural outskirts, where tea and other important crops are grown.  While the rest of the island is tropical, the mountain enjoys a wet temperate climate.

The province in which Mt. Pedro is situated is also home to numerous sacred sites, including the location of the writing of the first Buddhist texts and Adam's Peak, where Adam was believed to have been exiled from the Garden of Eden.

(https://www.thetrvlblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/FullSizeRender-4.jpg)
Adam's Peak is sacred to all of the world's major religions, both Monotheistic and non-Monotheistic.  One must walk up more than 5,000 steps in order to reach the summit.

May the people of Sri Lanka take heed from the recent floods that they are in danger.  May they either evacuate the island, possibly living a maritime existence, or move inland and upward in elevation, toward Mt. Pedro's sacred ground with its rich agrarian heritage where they may find abundance and beauty.
