Hawaii’s weather takes ‘unprecedented’ turn towards the bizarre

March 10, 2012HAWAII A rare tornado blew roofs off homes and left other damage in its path through the Hawaiian communities of Lanikai and Enchanted Lake on Oahu, weather officials confirmed Friday. A National Weather Service team surveying damage and talking to witnesses determined a waterspout came ashore and was reclassified as a tornado in Lanikai about 7:30 a.m. The 20-yard-wide tornado traveled about 1.5 miles in 15 minutes to Enchanted Lake with wind speeds reaching 60 to 70 mph before dissipating, officials said. Hawaii, known for its famous sunshine, has been hit with unusually harsh weather for about a week. Kaeo DePonte stands with a trampoline lifted out of an Enchanted Lake yard by high winds on Friday morning. A 30-minute hail storm on Friday in Oahu was “unprecedented,” Tom Birchard, senior meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Honolulu, told the Associated Press. Some of the hail stones have been unusually large for the islands — the size of marbles and discs more than a half inch long, weather.com reported. The islands also saw heavy rains and thunderstorms that closed schools, flooded homes and led to sewage spills. Landslides, power outages and roads blocks by trees, boulders and mud were reported. Some vacationers in the tropical paradise had their vacations dampened. When heavy rains canceled flights out of Kauai after midnight on Tuesday, about 20 passengers were stuck at the airport. The heavy rains were expected to subside by Saturday. There were no reports of deaths or injuries due to the storm. –MSNBC
Hailstones pound Hawaii: Deadly, devastating tornadoes in the northeastern U.S. are again setting records this year, and arriving earlier than ever. Meanwhile, frigid conditions have killed hundreds across Europe, while spring-like conditions exist in vast areas of North America. Now folks in Hawaii are seeing something previously unheard of: golf ball sized hail stones on the North Shore of Oahu and in some other areas across the state. In June, 2011 snow on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea (the dormant volcano which is the highest point in the Islands) was unusual, but according to experts, not unheard of. lifeslittlemysteries.com reports that hot air met cold above Mauna Kea, one of several volcanic island mountains that make up the Hawaii island chain , causing a powerful thunderstorm that, in the presence of the cooler-than-normal air, dropped roughly 6 inches of snow on the mountaintop. “The ground coverage was significant, mostly above 12,000 feet,” Ryan Lyman, a forecast climatologist at the Mauna Kea Weather Center, told Life’s Little Mysteries. –Newser.com

    Alvin,
    What is going on??? Tornado outbreaks hitting the U.S. early with Nebraska’s first ever February tornado, all volcanoes waking up and now unprecedented freak weather in Hawaii. Sheesh! I think our time is getting shorter, Alvin. Maybe I’m wrong. The lost need to wake up!

  2. Has anyone tracked to see if there is a direct relationship between strong solar flares and things like quakes/volcanoes? And, yeah, seems to me the ball has started to roll don the hill.

      In response to your question, yes. I’ve been monitoring various things like the Total Electron Count, the proton/cm3 count, and a few other things. TEC is at very hight and sustained levels to the east of the Hawaiian Islands which is heating up the Pacific Ocean over a very wide area to the west of South America. Large CME’s are also depositing electromagnetic energy of mind boggling proportions into the N. Pole area, which is causing dramatic auroras, geomagnetic storms. Earth’s core is being heated dramatically which causes expansion of earth’s outer crust, which leads to increased earthquakes of high magnitude and lots of volcanic activity. Proton levels seem to spike up right before the bigger earthquakes 5.0 and above. Just my observations.

    I seen a similar event on Oahu when I lived in Maile. It stayed just offshore but had it come ashore it would have been a tornado. I never seen hail on Oahu, but I did see snow on Maui ;-)

    Many people are tracing space weather, the connection between the CME’s, solar flairs, and sunspots with freak weather on our planet. Two are Mitch Battros at earth changes media and there is an interesting lecture on line from Delftt University by Susan Joy Rennison who talks about the many anomalies on the planet, including increasing plasma storms. Alvin and his work is one of the best!

    Anyone see the bizarrely HUGE spikes H.A.A.R.P.’s been putting out for the past month? Here’s link: http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/cgi-bin/magnetometer/gak-mag.cgi

    In the left column, click one month and press update. Something’s going on with that stupid machine.
