A MASSIVE 8.2 (upgraded number) EARTHQUAKE STRUCK CHILE AN HOUR AGO, PLEASE IF YOU’RE PLANNING ON GOING TO THE BEACH TOMORROW/TONIGHT, DO NOT. ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE IN HAWAII, JAPAN, NEW ZEALAND, CALIFORNIA, MEXICO, OR A VARIETY OF OTHER COAST HUGGING LAND MASSES.

A bizarre meteorological event hit the coast of New South Wales,
Australia over the weekend. Dubbed a “cloud tsunami” on Twitter, this
massive wave in the sky measured several kilometers long and swept over
the city of Sydney, bringing with it powerful thunderstorms, heavy
rains, and forceful winds that required the Australian Bureau of
Meteorology to issue a warning for the surrounding area.
The massive formation is actually called a shelf cloud,
composed of arcus clouds. The shelf cloud is typically the leading edge
of a thunderstorm, attached to the base of the parent cloud that
contains the storm. The strange wave-like appearance is caused by the
cool sinking air from the storm’s downdraft spreading out over the land,
meeting the warm air being drawn into the storm’s updraft. (Source)
After Fukushima’s nuclear disaster,
which was caused by the earthquake and
tsunami that struck Japan in 2011,
Naoto Matsumura returned to live in the
exclusion zone so he could take care of
the cows, chickens, ostriches, dogs, cats,
pony, and other animals that were left
behind when their owners fled. Despite
daily exposure to radiation, he and the
animals continue to survive together. SourceSource 2
