Disasters on the planet: Yellowstone and Aira, melting glaciers, stopping of the Gulf Stream, record temperatures, abnormal heat, floods. The climate strikes new records! Climate Breaking News on ALLATRA TV.​

1:34 Japan and China. On July 5, a typhoon Prapiroon descended upon Japan and China, which caused massive rainfall in Japan. 263 mm of precipitation fell in just 3 hours which is a record for the entire 40-year history of observation.

2:31 Thailand, Pakistan, India, Romania, Spain, Italy, Ghana, Nigeria and Houston. Heavy floods.

2:40 Japan. Lately, volcanic activity has awakened. The Sakurajima volcano started erupting on the southern island of Kyushu in Japan. This volcano is part of the super-volcano Aira, which is described in more detail in the report by ALLATRA SCIENCE researchers: “On the  problems and consequences of global climate change on Earth. Effective ways of solve these problems”

3:07 USA. Japan. American scientists from the University of Miami and the Florida International University, in the course of their research, discovered a deep underground connection between the Aira and the Kirishima volcanoes in Japan.

5:29 USA. Yellowstone. Today, our attention has been drawn by the information about a new statement of geologists, who discovered that magma in Yellowstone caldera has started to heat up twice as fast.
Geologists found out that the amount of heat emitted through the  thermal springs and lakes has doubled when compared to 2016.

Heavy rains fell in Sochi and Adler. 
According to the hydrometeorological center a third of the monthly rainfall rate fell within one hour.
An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.7 occurred on Kamchatka. According to eyewitnesses, the walls and the floor were shaking, the dishes jingled.
On July 8, a heavy rain hit Vladimir. 
On July 9, heavy rain passed in Yaroslavl.
On July 12 in the Rostov region a strong wind was raging.
As a result of flood displacement from the rivers of the Zabaykalsky Krai and heavy rains, a heavy flood situation remains in the Amur Region.

20:06 Record temperatures. The past few months, including April, May, June and July brought with them anomalous heat for many countries of the world.
USA, Canada, Japan, countries of the Middle East and Central Asia, some European countries and even Northern Siberia fell victim to an unheard of in the last 138 years heat.

21:38 Poland. Just two weeks ago thermometers showed 32°C in the shade. The massive hurricane ran over the entire territory of Poland the same day evening. The temperature fell down till  8 degrees overnight. As a result of this cold accident quarter of a million inhabitants were cut off from the benefits of civilization only in Mazovian Voivodeship.

22:49 Kazakhstan. The south-west Kazakhstan thermometers are reading off scale due to excessive heat since the beginning of July. The air temperature in shade reaches 46 degrees in several districts of the region at the same time. In the sun, the temperature readings are from 52 to 62 degrees Celsius. The townspeople languish with the heat. The situation is aggravated by the wind, which moves the hot air. 

23:11 Georgia. On July 7, torrential rains led to floods in the Svanetia region in Georgia. 

23:27 Armenia. July in Yerevan is anomalously hot. On July 12 in capital, the  absolute record for July, and the  absolute record for the entire history of meteorological observations set with a value of +42.4 degrees.
