#Flood Once again comes down on #Houston #Texas

The rain droplets and the growing water collection on the ground will surely show you that this is destined for a disaster. As seen on the video uploaded by ABC news, the gathering water on the ground is already growing to the extent of swallowing parked cars of unsuspecting car owners who have left their parked while looking to get protection from buildings.

Houston is no stranger to flood and it is coming at a time where many are already weakened by the Coronavirus. May God protect them.

#Wildfire : A firenado spotted in #California

Screenshot_20200913-175021

California is burning down like Babylon. That state is now an annual host of the natural disasters most wouldn’t consider a part of their life. Imagine the fright and thought of the fire fighters in California every year.

This event has given a new meaning to summer in the hot California. Knowing that your city is prone to this sort of natural disaster, how is it normal or appropriate again to carryout activities that involve fire being encouraged into the bush that never stops burning and then a very prominent round of wild fire is then again triggered by the couple that held their baby’s gender reveal party.

Is #California finally Unlivable?

Smoke from the wildfires ripping across the Western U.S. nearly blocked out the sun in Northern California on Wednesday.⁣ ⁣ Strong winds are likely to continue to fuel the extraordinary number of fires burning in California, Oregon and Washington State. Evacuation orders are in effect in some counties.⁣ ⁣ Nearly 2.3 million acres of land have burned in California this year — or about 20 times what had burned at this time last year — and there have been 2,650 more fires than at this point in 2019. ⁣ ⁣ The Creek fire, which ignited on Friday evening, has burned 152,000 acres — 5 times the size of San Francisco — and is still out of control. Over the weekend and into Tuesday afternoon, the National Guard airlifted hundreds of civilians out of the Sierra National Forest and away from the fire, their exits trapped by a dense ring of flames. Pilots involved in the rescues said it was the most harrowing flying of their careers. ⁣ ⁣ California is not alone in battling an unprecedented fire season.⁣ ⁣ In Washington, Gov. Jay Inslee said that 330,000 acres had burned across the state, more than what burned in each of the last 12 fire seasons. In the small town of Malden, nearly all of the homes and municipal buildings — including the post office and fire department — were burned to the ground.⁣ ⁣ In Oregon, the fires have torched hundreds of thousands of acres and forced the evacuation of much of Medford, a city of more than 80,000 people about 30 miles north of the California border. ⁣ ⁣ Tap the link in our bio for the latest about the wildfires.

Reposted from @time U.S. Secret Service agents stand by as President #Trump, not pictured, observes tornado damage in Cookeville, east of Nashville, on March 6. Parts of #Tennessee were devastated this week by a series of tornadoes that hit multiple counties, leaving at least two dozen people dead. More than 140 buildings were destroyed, trees were mangled and power outages left more than 50,000 homes without electricity. In nearby Baxter, one resident likened the scene to “some type of war zone.” Read more about how survivors are grappling with the aftermath—and whether to rebuild—at the link in bio.

The complete change of event and temperature with similar destructions has gone really crazy in Australia.

While the Australian bush/wild fire has taken a break on the soil of these Kangaroo owning humans, it is yet another destruction happening as a ginormous size hail drops down on the land yet again, causing all kinds of destructions.

The news as revealed by bbcnews has yet again startled the world for Australians.

Extreme #Canadian #Temperature begins startling #Nigerian #Migrants

Screenshot_20200119-194105

Before you commence reading this, pray for your relatives in Canada as they wakeup to snow shut doors. The Nigerian migrants to Canada have had a little or nothing to complain about knowing fully well that the country is simply an Iceland. But when this however changed when they woke up to their doors and cars buried feets of snow, it gave them a cause to worry, especially the new migrants.

Those who are experiencing their first January in Canada are watching on with dropped jaws. But then again are they forgetting who they are? Despite being black are you in anyway expecting someone to remind you of the fact that you are a Nigerian? You have survived way worse situations, so this is nothing compared to what you have overcome as a Nigerian.

So get creative and survive this as well. Get to work, get to the mall, get to where to meet to get to. If the owners of that land are getting by, be a good son/daughter of the Nigerian and Canadian soil and get by. Long live the Federal republic of Nigeria, Long live Canada and long live those who persist and persevere. Live and thrive, Live and strive, Live and fly.

Disturbed by the #Australianfires #Lewishamilton donates $500k to Australian fire service

lewishamilton-1578596790465

Reposted from @lewishamilton – It saddens me deeply to know that over 1 billion animals in Australia died a painful death, no way out, not their fault. My love of animals is no secret and I can’t help but grieve for the defenceless animals thought to have died so far, pushing certain species closer to extinction. I’m lucky enough to visit Australia often and I know first-hand how beautiful the country is. Keep fighting Australia. I’ve spent some time speaking to people in Australia who are working at the heart of this and I’m filled with admiration for everything they are doing.

I implore you to join me in thinking about the impact we are having on our planet. Let’s work together to make small changes, and encourage our family and friends to do the same, so we can help shift the direction we’re going in.

I’m donating $500K to support @wireswildliferescue @wwf_australia and the Rural Fire Services. If you are able and haven’t already, you can donate too. Every little helps.

from @lewishamilton – Focus on what you love doing. Set your sights and dreams high. Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t or you’re not good enough. You need to believe (if you really aren’t good at it then you need to be realistic too) nobody can do it for you, only help along the way but you are going to have to do the heavy lifting! Let’s set our sights higher for 2020, never backing down! I believe in you and so should you! #letsgo #believeinyourself

Reposted from @lewishamilton (@get_regrann) – Surfing into the new year, one of my favourite things to do. There is much to do, so much to see. Much work is ahead of us but I try to set my sights high on things which most people would say are impossible, envision it and work to manifest them. What are YOU going to do to make the difference for you this year? #believeinyourself – #regrann

In His Mercies, God sends rain to assist the fighters of #Australiafires

nowspacetime-1578479488396

Isn’t he God? And is there anything he can’t do? Well we are grateful for his change of heart, pity in humanity, and gift of rain.

Reposted from @nowspacetime – Nearly 200 fires are still burning across the entire country of Australia, with smoke spreading across thousands of miles — affecting places as far as New Zealand, where ash has turned glaciers yellow.

More than 15 million acres of land has been scorched — 7x the 2019 Amazon fires and 3x the 2018 California fires. The death toll has climbed to at least 24 people and more than 1,200 homes have been destroyed.

It’s estimated that 8000 koalas (one third of the koala population in New South Wales) have been killed –– a figure that is feared to be even higher as the fires continue. Due to their slow movement, koalas are more at risk as they’re unable to escape the flames.

These are the devastating effects of anthropogenic climate change. This is the slaughter of life, the destruction of nature and the loss of hope. Let’s make 2020 the year that we stand up for the climate. It’s time to speak up for the voiceless and take action for what is right.

Thankfully, conditions are beginning to ease as firefighters are gaining control over several dangerous fires. The awareness shared through social media has helped raise tens of millions of dollars, money which will help aid first responders and animal rescuers to do all they can to put an end to this nightmare.

#Newzealand sends help, while #Britain sends ‘thoughts and prayers’🙄 to victims of #Australiafire

leonardodicaprio-1578174387658

Talk about the significant item sent. Maybe u am being too extra, but what exactly can these victims do with thoughts and prayers? can thoughts and prayers help them start up life? can they now rebuild what’s lost and save more lives with thoughts and prayers? #damn

from @kensingtonroyal – We continue to be shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the fires that are destroying homes, livelihoods and wildlife across much of Australia.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people and communities who are affected by this devastating event.

We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who have tragically lost their lives, and the brave firefighters who continue to risk their own lives to save the lives of others.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

from @theroyalfamily – Her Majesty The Queen has sent a message of condolence to the Governor General of Australia, Governor of New South Wales, Governor of Queensland, and Governor of Victoria and to all Australians: “I have been deeply saddened to hear of the continued bushfires and their devastating impact across many parts of Australia.
My thanks go out to the emergency services, and those who put their own lives in danger to help communities in need.
Prince Philip and I send our thoughts and prayers to all Australians at this difficult time. Elizabeth R”

from @hilaryduff – The next photo is absolutely gut wrenching. The fires in beautiful Australia are covering the entire country 14.7 million acres have burned. That is an unfathomable number. Half a billion animals GONE. Burned alive. 💔💔 its a strange feeling of guilt to be enjoying my honeymoon in South Africa in a similar landscape where the animals are healthy and free and such devastating circumstances for others occurring at the same moment. Homes burned, people displaced and unfortunately some lives lost. @Matthewkoma and I are coming up with a number that we feel comfortable with to donate and will keep you posted on that. Please do what you can

The horror of the Australia fires is spreading like it’s name implies. With the destruction yet unaccertained and still counting, the world is just now coming to terms with the extent of ruin this fire must now have caused in the motherland of life itself.

Actress and wife to Keith Urban Nicole kidman, yesterday revealed that she is now donating to the rural fire service the whopping sum of half a million dollars, to encourage their will and power with the right equipment and protection suitable for nature’s horror. Thank you Nicole, and the rest if you people who have decided to help out.
