The flood situation in the Cuvelai catchment area has reached alarming levels and residents are being warned to take necessary precautions, in expectation of the worst possible flooding experienced here in living memory.
Over 70 people have so far drowned in Oshana, Omusati and Ohangwena regions in Namibia because of heavy downpours.
Over 60 schools in Omusati Region are also reported to have shut their doors, while about some 120 families consisting of 562 individuals have been displaced at Oshakati and temporarily relocated to Ekuku.
Heavy rainfall is forecast for the areas within the Cuvelai Basin, including Omusati, Oshana, Ohangwena, Kunene, Kavango East and West and the Zambezi regions and residents of those areas are advised to be on high alert for possible flooding.
 All institutions and sectors and relief agencies that normally participate in disaster management have been urged to activate their contingency plans for flood management in preparation for the potential disaster.
Communities are being advised not to cross rivers in the flooded areas and to take precautionary measures to avoid loss of life and damage to property.

Drought 
Namibia which has been facing the effects of their severest drought in over a quarter of a century for the last four years.
Some 330,000 people in Namibia are food insecure, 14 percent of the country’s population.
Over 600,000 people in the Namibia Angolan border provinces of Cunene and Huila do not have enough food or water due to two consecutive years of failed rains

Astonishing turn around
Namibia is the fifth area to witness an astonishing turn around for drought crippled regions around the globe: California, Zimbabwe, New Zealand and Madagascar and now Namibia have had droughts wiped out!

Cave News
Torrential rains triggered flash floods in the Peruvian capital Lima, stranding thousands of people and forcing rescuers to find ways to evacuate them across roads turned to raging rivers.
The inundation came as the National Emergency Operations Center said at least 65 people have been killed in Peru this year in natural disasters, the latest being three deaths in a flood in the La Libertad region of northern Peru.
Two people were missing.
After weeks of heavy rain, some residents on the outskirts of the capital of 10 million people awoke Friday to the realization their bedrooms were filling with water.
Others found themselves cut off by mudslides that blocked portions of the main highway linking Lima to the center of the country.
In one dramatic scene, rescuers used zip lines to help residents of Lima's Huachipa neighborhood escape over the torrent of brown water that was once their street, as it swallowed up cars and trucks. The floods have been triggered by El Nino, a warming of surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean that wreaks havoc on weather patterns every few years.
This year it has hit Peru particularly hard. "It's a difficult situation, there's no doubt about it.
But we have the resources" to deal with it, said President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.
The government announced it would release 2.5 billion soles ($760 million) in emergency funds to rebuild affected areas.

Floods in Lima Region 
Around 100,000 people have been affected by the current flood event in Lima Region.
On Tuesday 14 March, the rivers Rimac, Huaycoloro and Huaicos all overflowed in different points of the capital affecting Chaclacayo, Lurigancho-Chosica, El Augistino and Punta Hermosa.
A bridge dramatically collapsed in Talavera, San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima Province.
Elsewhere in Lima region the Supe river overflowed, inundating nearby areas in Ambar District. Authorities report that Mala, Chilca and Cañete have also been affected by flooding.

Floods and Heavy Rain Since December
Over Half Million Affected Peru’s civil defence agency INDECI reported (pdf) yesterday
62 people have lost their lives as a result of the heavy rain, flooding and landslides.
At least twenty regions have been affected.
72,115 displaced
567,551 affected
62 dead
170 injured
12 missing
9,018 homes destroyed
8257 homes damaged (uninhabitable)
110,094 homes affected
1,231 km main roads destroyed
132 bridges destroyed

The Nicaraguan government remains vigilant against signs of eruption in Momotombo volcano, located not far from the city of Leon, after an explosion at a crater in which registered a dense gas erupted.
According to the specialists of the National System of Attention, Prevention and Mitigation of Disasters (Sinapred), the plume of smoke given off the mountain rose about 200 meters over the summit of the volcano.
Even though there are still no reports of damage to the surrounding communities, Sinapred stepped up the permanent observation for Momotombo degasification.
Momotombo, 258 meters above sea level, has been active since December 2015, when it suddenly erupted after 110 years of relative calm.
Likewise, the surveillance currently still remains over Telica volcano, which also showed some increased activity signs in recent days, by expelling gases and ashes after a strong explosion in the same region.
Located in the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, which concentrates most of the world´s volcanoes, Nicaragua has at least 58 mountains of this kind, six out of which are currently active.
Apart from Momotombo and Telica (with 1060 meters above sea level), are also the following volcanoes: San Cristobal (1745), Concepcion (1610), Cerro Negro (675) and Masaya (635).

The largest outbreak of Yellow Fever since 2,000 is killing humans and Monkeys alike in Brazil with a huge rise in human cases

At least 137 people have died of yellow fever in the country amid the largest outbreak Brazil has seen since 2000, according to officials.
The Health Ministry said Thursday that the number of confirmed cases went up to 424, adding 933 cases, and 112 suspected deaths were under investigation.
The largest number of infections were recorded in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais, where 325 confirmed cases were reported; 111 people died.
Neighboring Espirito Santo followed with 93 cases, while four cases were confirmed in Sao Paulo where eight people died of the disease, according to the state's health authority. Meanwhile, Rio de Janeiro health officials announced last week a mass vaccination campaign in the state as a precaution amid the outbreak.
The first death from yellow fever in the country's third most populous state was confirmed by the State Health Ministry on Wednesday.
The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control has issued a warning against the "current yellow fever outbreak in Brazil which began in January and has now logged more than 1,500 suspected cases".
The outbreak "should put travelers and health care providers on high alert for the mosquito-borne disease," ECDC said Thursday.
The World Health Organization, earlier in March, had warned international travelers visiting Espirito Santo against the fastly spreading disease in the state, recommending vaccination at least 10 days prior to the travel.
The advice was published on the WHO's official website on March 6. "Occasionally, infected travellers from areas where yellow fever occurs have exported cases to countries that are free of yellow fever, but the disease can only spread easily if that country has mosquito species able to transmit it, specific climatic conditions and the animal reservoir needed to maintain it", according to WHO.
Usual symptoms include fever, muscle pain, backache, headache, shivers, loss of appetite, and nausea or vomiting, with most patients improving within 3 to 4 days.
In severe cases, however, high fever returns within a day of symptoms disappearing.
"The patient rapidly develops jaundice and complains of abdominal pain with vomiting.
Bleeding can occur from the mouth, nose, eyes or stomach.
"Once this happens, blood appears in the vomit and faeces.
Kidney function deteriorates. Half of the patients who enter the toxic phase die within 10 to 14 days, the rest recover without significant organ damage," WHO says.

Yellow fever has also killed thousands of rare Monkeys in Brazil
Yellow fever is thought to be behind the death of thousands of rare monkeys found in the rain forests of Brazil
But there is no vaccine for monkeys who are dying en masse in Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais, the two states so far worst hit.
“Some 80 to 90 per cent of the brown howler monkeys are infected or have already died,” says Sergio Mendes at the Federal University of Espírito Santo in Vitoria, Brazil.
“This is a true catastrophe.
These outbreaks happen periodically, but this is the worst I’ve ever seen.”
Mendes knows of 400 howler monkey deaths in the state, and he believes this is likely to be only 10 per cent of the total, around 4,000 at least, with the greatest losses happening largely unseen in remote forested areas.

A huge Coronal Hole turns toward Earth: A wide stream of solar wind flowing from this coronal hole is expected to reach our planet on March 23rd

The Big Wobble - DON'T EAT ANYTHING FROM THE PACIFIC OCEAN, DON'T GO IN THE WATER - LOOK AT THE PICT Untitled
A huge hole has opened in the sun's atmosphere, and it is turning toward Earth. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory is tracking the opening, which researchers call a "coronal hole" (CH): 
A large coronal hole in the sun's atmosphere and  will swing into geoeffective position during the last week of March. Solar wind flowing from the hole is expected to strike our planet's magnetic field and spark G1- to G2-class geomagnetic storms on March 28-29.
Regular visitors to The Big Wobble will be aware coronal holes are the main earthquake factor.
The dark patches sometimes covering more than half the entire face of the Sun indicate that the interplanetary magnetic field connecting Earth to our Sun will be experiencing huge fluctuations of energy, these huge fluctuations increase then decrease pressure on our planet causing major quakes and often volcanic activity.
The speed of these fluctuations or solar wind is incredible sometimes reaching speeds of almost 1,000 km/second

Credit: NASA/SDO. Our Sun is very quiet at the moment; the Sun has been blank from sun spots for 9 straight days. The last time our Sun released an X-class flair was way back on 5/5/2015 as we head towards the Solar Minimum expected to arrive 2019/20, resulting in a period of relative calm on our Sun


However, the absence of sunspots doesn’t mean no space weather to report as the new coronal hole will show.

How long can the Pacific Ocean survive honestly? No one really knows with 300 tons of radioactive water leaking into the sea every day for the next 40 years

Fukushima update

Emphasized by Gary Walton
A 'scorpion' robot sent into a Japanese nuclear reactor to learn about the damage suffered in a tsunami-induced meltdown had its mission aborted after the probe ran into trouble, Tokyo Electric Power company said Thursday.
TEPCO, the operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant, sent the remote-controlled device into the No. 2 reactor where radiation levels have recently hit record highs.
The 'scorpion' robot, so-called because it can lift up its camera-mounted tail to achieve better viewing angles, is also designed to crawl over rubble inside the damaged facility.
But it could not reach its target destination beneath a pressure vessel through which nuclear fuel is believed to have melted because the robot had difficulty moving, a company spokeswoman said.(All probability the high levels of radioactivity blinded the robot because these robots are designed to crawl over rubble)
'It's not immediately clear if that's because of radiation or obstacles,' she said, adding that TEPCO is checking what data the robot was able to obtain, including images.
A massive undersea earthquake on March 11, 2011 sent a huge tsunami barrelling into Japan's northeast coast, leaving more than 18,000 people dead or missing, and sending three reactors into meltdown at the plant in the worst such accident since Chernobyl in 1986.(Fukushima is going to be much bigger than the Chernobyl event and will in all probability destroy the Pacific Ocean)
The Japanese government said in December that it expects the total costs -- including compensation, decommissioning and decontamination -- to reach 21.5 trillion yen ($189 billion) in a process likely to take decades as high radiation levels slow operations.
The robot, 60 centimetres (24 inches) long, is made by Toshiba and equipped with two cameras and sensors to gauge radiation levels and temperatures.
'Scorpion's mission is to take images of the situation and collect data inside the containment vessel,' TEPCO spokesman Shinichi Nakakuki said earlier.'
Challenges include enduring high levels of radiation and moving on the rough surface,' he said. Radiation levels inside the reactor were estimated last week at 650 sieverts per hour at one spot, which can effectively shut down robots in hours.
But the probe -- designed to withstand up to 1,000 sieverts of radiation in total -- would not sustain severe damage because it was unlikely to remain for too long at a single point, Nakakuki said.
After a manually operated camera probed the deepest point yet within the reactor, Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) estimate that radiation levels inside the plant's No. 2 reactor have hit 530 sieverts per hour.(There are areas where the robots still can't reach where the radiations levels will in all probability be much higher)
Radiation exposure at 530 sieverts per hour would effectively shut down TEPCO's planned robot camera probe in under two hours.
TEPCO said the radiation is not leaking outside the reactor. (This is a strange comment from TEPCO considering 300 tons of radioactive water is leaking into the Pacific every day) 
The previous record at Fukushima was 73 sieverts per hour detected by sensors in 2012, TEPCO said. But TEPCO said the high reading focused on a single point with levels likely to be much lower at other spots (However there are other areas the robots can't reach which are probably much higher than 500 hundred sieverts per hour).
It's been over half a decade since Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station suffered a catastrophic meltdown which topped the International Nuclear Event Scale due to its severity. Radiation loves to hang around, and researchers conducting operations with robots inside the damaged reactors were met with radiation levels at their highest point since the actual meltdown back in 2011.
In fact, the radiation level is so elevated that the robot operators had to quickly recall one of their robotic probes because it began to literally go blind.
Like sending a rover to another planet, the mission for robot operators from the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) is to monitor the status of the failed reactors and the nuclear materials housed within.
Unfortunately, the radiation level of the reactor units was high enough to actually begin to damage one of the robots' camera system, and could have completely blinded the view for the operator and left the bot stranded in the radioactive hellscape. (In layman's terms what the are saying here is no technology has yet been invented to fix the problem, humans or robots can not get anywhere near the rector long enough to fix the problem so TEPO's claim it will take another 40 years to fix the problem is probably a very conservative guess) 
However, TEPCO was able to study some of the readings taken by the robots before things went awry.
The scientists have estimated the level of radiation to be anywhere from 530 sieverts per hour to 650 sieverts per hour.
Those numbers are representative of the amount of radiation an object would expect to be bombarded with over a specific period of time.
To add a bit of scope to that, it's estimated that just one sievert will cause fatal cancer in approximately 5% of people, while a dose of five sieverts will kill 50% of people exposed to it within a month.
As little as 90 millisieverts (0.09 sieverts) accumulated over time can increase cancer risk in both adults and children. (With 300 tons of this stuff washing into the Pacific every day how long will it take before it kills the Pacific Ocean, it is a big ocean but not that big)
Later this month TEPCO plans to send yet another probe into the reactor to take additional readings and hopefully paint a clearer picture of just what exactly is going on inside.
