The mayor of Naples ordered a much-awaited soccer match scrapped Sunday for fear tens of thousands of fans could be trapped by flooding, while in northern Italy authorities closely monitored the rain-swollen Po river. Luigi De Magistris said he ordered the Serie A match between Napoli and Juventus postponed to some later date, partly because the field was already soggy, but mainly because of concern some 65,000 fans could be trapped in flooding or cause traffic problems as they drove to or from the stadium. The sprawling outdoor ruins of ancient Pompeii on the outskirts of Naples were temporarily closed for fear of flooding, but later were reopened to tourists, authorities said. The area has been pounded by torrential rain that has already claimed one life. Near the Naples suburb of Pozzuoli, a tree fell on a car, killing the driver, local fire chief Giovanni Fricano told Sky TG24. Much of Italy, especially the northwest, has been pummeled by heavy rains and flooding over the last two weeks. The latest worry in the north concerned the Po river, the waters of which swelled from two rain fed-tributaries, the head of Italy’s Civil Protection agency, Franco Gabrielli said. He told reporters that Sunday evening could be a crucial time for the Po’s level, if the rain becomes heavier.

A bridge across a Po tributary, the Pellice stream, in the countryside outside Turin, collapsed Sunday as waters rushed through, the Italian news agency ANSA said. No injuries were reported. Flash flooding in the center of Genoa, on the Liguria sea, killed six people Friday, including several people who took shelter in a doorway along a major street when flood waters came barreling down on them. Elsewhere in northwestern Italy, hillside towns in the Cinque Terre tourist area were still shoveling out from tons of mud from earlier flooding that claimed nine lives in Liguria and Tuscany. Much of largely mountainous Italy is geologically fragile, as people build homes on the slopes of hillsides, leaving them vulnerable for mudslides. In neighboring France, 11 regions were on alert Sunday after heavy rains in the touristic Var and Alpes-Maritime regions swelled rivers and left some towns under water, forcing hundreds to evacuate. According to the Var prefecture, at least 750 people were evacuated from flooded areas in the coastal towns of Frejus, Roquebrune and in Tourves, inland north of Toulon. The heavy rain was marching westward toward the Atlantic, putting the Pyrenees region on alert. At least one flood-related death has been reported in France. The body of a man was found Saturday morning on a riverbank in Lezignan-la-Cebe in the Herault region. Officials there said the victim was likely a homeless German who lived in a van and was reported missing Friday.

Certain regions of Italy have also been experiencing as series of earthquakes throughout the whole country. What is even more interesting is that the flooding & the quakes started right around the time that The Vatican had a meeting with world leaders behind closed doors!!! After the meeting they called for a New Financial Order with a Global Political Authority to govern it!!! JUDGEMENT BEGINS in THE HOUSE of GOD!!! The APOSTATES IN THE VATICAN WILL RECEIVE JUDGEMENT!!!!!!!!!


More than 20 people, mostly band members, were hospitalized Friday night after suddenly falling ill during a high school football game in southwest Houston on Friday night. It was first believed they had been exposed to an unknown chemical, but fire officials said later they had found no trace of gases or chemical agents at the scene. Austin and Yates high schools were playing at Barnett Stadium when, sometime around 9:00pm local time, students suddenly fell ill and hazmat teams and emergency crews were dispatched to the stadium. The victims, mainly band members and dancers from Austin High, were reportedly suffering from nausea, vomiting and heart palpitations. David Almaguer, Houston Fire Department assistant chief, told KTRK-TV that the victims had been taken to several local hospitals. “A number of the students were complaining of nausea,” he said. “We ended up with 22 students being transported to five different hospitals” A hazmat team was set up a decontamination unit in the vicinity of the stadium, which was evacuated following the incident. A student said he began to smell something odd when he saw his sister lose consciousness. Another witness said, “Three dancers moved to the side and started throwing up, then as we got to the stands, more started falling.” A doctor who interviewed patients at the scene said investigators were still trying to work out what caused the students to suddenly become ill, after fire officials said their detection equipment had found no sign of gases or chemical agents in the area. “The kids all ate at different places, some of them ate at different times … but they did have something in their stomachs. At this point, it remains a little unclear what set it off,” Emergency Medical Services doctor David Purse said.


Northern Arizona’s high country was blanketed with snow Saturday after a fast moving storm dumped nearly half a foot in Flagstaff overnight. The storm that triggered dust storms south of Phoenix as it moved in Friday afternoon brought heavy rain to the rest of the state. Phoenix got almost half an inch at Sky Harbor airport and more in northern suburbs, while cities from Yuma to Tucson to Globe all saw significant rain. The storm had mostly moved east into New Mexico by midday, leaving clear blue skies dotted with some clouds. But it was much colder than a day before, and National Weather Service forecasters expect temperatures to remain below average for days. A slightly weaker storm could bring more rain and snow on Sunday night and into Monday.

I just posted an article about the quakes in Arkansas the other day & now Oklahoma & they have a few tremors every week in Memphis Tennessee!! May GOD be with us & may he prepare us mentally, spiritually, & financially for what is to come to BABYLON U.S.A.!! 

A moderate earthquake early Saturday in central Oklahoma knocked pictures off walls and woke people and pets as it shook an area that stretched into Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Texas. The U.S. Geological Survey said on its website Saturday that a 4.7 magnitude earthquake struck at 2:12 a.m., with an epicenter about six miles north of Prague in Lincoln County. That’s about 50 miles east of Oklahoma City and 75 miles southwest of Tulsa. A 3.4 magnitude aftershock was reported at 2:27 a.m. from the same location, as well as a 2.7 magnitude aftershock at 2:44 a.m. “Oh, man. I’ve never felt anything like that in my life,” Prague City Police Department dispatcher Claudie Morton told the Tulsa World. “It was the scariest thing. I had a police officer just come in and sit down and all the sudden the walls started shaking and the windows were rattling. It felt like the roof was going to come off the police department.” Morton said the office was flooded with calls, but no one reported injuries or major damage. She said residents told her that picture frames and mirrors fell from walls and broke, drawers worked loose from dressers and objects tumbled out of cabinets.

“We do have several damaged buildings downtown, but it’s just cracks and things like that,” Morton said. “Nothing is destroyed or anything like that.” Oklahoma Geological Survey researcher Austin Holland told Oklahoma City television station KOTV that the earthquake and aftershocks occurred on a known fault line. Residents in Prague and Sparks felt an intense shaking, while farther away, the quake was more of a dull rumble, he said. “It shakes much more rapidly when you’re closer to it,” he said. “Because it’s a large earthquake, it’s going to rumble for a while.” Holland said his office received hundreds of emails from people who felt the quake. The messages came from as far as Texas, Missouri and Arkansas, he said. Tom Foster of Oklahoma City told The Oklahoman that he slept through the earthquake but was awakened by an aftershock. “I know we’ve already had several phone calls from out of state relatives wondering what happened,” Foster said. “I guess it’s more interesting than anything that was dangerous.” Heather Spicer of Sapulpa said the shaking woke her son and their dog. “At first I thought an airplane had crashed nearby,” she told The Oklahoman. “But now I believe it was an earthquake because the whole house just kept vibrating with what sounded like distant thunder outside.”

OKLAHOMA CITY — Authorities say a 5.6 magnitude earthquake has hit central Oklahoma, but they had no immediate reports of any injuries or major damages.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported from Golden, Colo., on its website that it detected a 5.6 magnitude quake at 10:53 p.m. local time Saturday, centered about 44 miles east-northeast of Oklahoma City. It had initially reported the temblor as a 5.2 magnitude quake.

Michelann Ooten, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management, also confirmed a quake on the scale of 5 was recorded.

It came on a day a series of quakes rattled the state, including a 4.7 magnitude quake early Saturday.

Ooten said no injuries were reported to emergency management officials and she had no reports of major damage.
