The United Nations have become deranged, an organisation for destruction. All the people of earth will vow to do better but will receive a thrashing before they finally do.
The above misquote is from Isaiah chapter 19.

Two people were missing after their house was crushed near the town of Balestrand last night. The house, in a valley near a river, was hit by an avalanche of snow and mud following heavy rain.
Some places had over 70 mm in 12 hours.
Balestand is situated in Sogn og Fjordane county (Fylke) where 33 roads were closed. Over 40 roads were closed in the counties of Hordaland, Sogn og Fjordane and M re og Romsdal.

Interesting run of Sea Surface Pressure charts. No doubt you will be getting another earthquake when this anticyclone disperses or moves from over the UK.
Ditto western and or southern Japan.
(Yes I know they have been having a stream of 5M's or so.
And this in fact did occur.
May I point this out, I am looking at all associated geo-phenomena and trying to make sense of them, that is all. These days I know enough to know I don't know enough to make predictions.
The beginning of the year we had snow and anticyclonic weather in Britain. So obviously I was looking at events related to anticyclonic decay.
That was when I must have seen the long list of earthquakes hitting Bonin Islands (some 9 to 12 degrees south of the eventual massive earthquake epicentre.)
The penny slowly slid down, dropped into place and the door opened.
When I see events taking shape that seem to portend notable geo-phenomena I do try some sort of warning but only on my blog and on the relative forums as here (uk.sci.weather and sci.geo.earthquakes) Assuming that I am going to enter some competition with sceptics is foolish. It's not as if anyone can win anything from such people. But even if one could, where would that put you?
You would have impressed the worst possible people imaginable.
If you stooped for idiots like that, you'd end up examining every dog turd in your way and never get to the shops.
