La Isla Este formaba parte del archipiélago de Hawaii. Desapareció tras el paso del huracán Walaka, de categoría 4

La fiereza del huracán Walaka provocó que una isla del archipiélago de Hawaiidesapareciera bajo las olas, de acuerdo a información satelital suministrada por la oficina de Pesca y Vida Salvaje de los Estados Unidos.

La desaparición de la remota Isla Este se confirmó el pasado lunes, cuando las imágenes provistas por un satélite arrojaron que ya no estaba en la superficie y que ahora había olas en su lugar.

Fletcher indicó en diálogo con el sitio Civil Beat, de Honolulu, que la Isla Este eventualmente quedaría bajo el agua, pero creyó que esto ocurriría dentro de dos décadas, por lo menos.

Sin embargo, de la noche a la mañana, el huracán Walaka, de categoría 4, terminó con su existencia. Si bien el científico explicó que el fenómeno no forma parte del cambio climático, aclaró que el poderoso huracán sumado al calentamiento global de los océanos sí tuvieron injerencia sobre la desaparición de la isla.


No está claro si la Isla Este -un área de 4 hectáreas y media de arena y césped- que albergó una estación de radar de la Guardia Costera de los Estados Unidos hasta 1952, volverá alguna vez a la superficie. Tampoco qué podrá pasar con los animales desplazados.

La isla era la más importante para el anidamiento de tortugas marinas en la zona. Qué ocurrirá con el futuro de esta fauna es un misterio. Allí también se hallaba una colonia de focas fraile, cuyo futuro también representa una incógnita para los investigadores y científicos de Hawaii. Lo más probable es que muchas de ellas sean comida para los tiburones que rondan por la zona.

La desaparición de la Isla Este de Hawaii ocasionaría gran impacto sobre toda la ecología del archipiélago. Cuál será la próxima es el gran interrogante en aquel estado oceánico norteamericano.

      I had quit the JW Open Club, so as not to be a cause for dissension …. which if I am not careful I can take over a conversation … as TTH ALLUDED to that, and he was correct.
      Under the circumstances, I feel if I do not comment, it would solve at least 3 points of concern.
      I have been thinking about this for several days and decided it would be appropriate to “belong” if I only commented if asked a question, etc.,and not post cartoons.
      Basically, the same rules at the Kingdom Hall, except I will be courteous to anyone that is courteous to me, except that for d’fd people, not to discuss any theocratic issue or “what’s going on”, etc., realizing it is a double edged sword that should cut both ways.
      With all that in mind, I again request approval to join the closed club mainly as an observer.
      The open club has evolved into a bat cave of crazy people.

      Hi, it seems we are the only two left talking about it as the rest have lost interest.  PITY, because they will soon see what is coming. I have always had a good imagination for understanding injustice. ..I watched the video about the injustice you put up.... very sad. We understand those things.....the other video is just a parody, of snippets of a very nasty person.... I do not know who she is but she was standing  next to the health minister.....
      I am not well, so I may not make it thru this system..... and I am happy to say maybe it is a  good thing.... I want to praise jehovah until I die ...but the opportunities are getting less.... and who wants to see people suffer?  If I were still around I would be severely stressed by it.  
      My father always said " know all, blow all" when people think they know it all.  And I have seen some pretty opinionated people on here. Mostly people who have had very little suffering and had authority in congregations.   
      I encourage you to stay strong dear sister and please devote more time to worship Jehovah in love. I also want to cut my time on internet ........ I spend time trying to find hidden  news about new developments in UN etc.  Soon all news about what is really  going on will not be available..... just mandates from governments and propaganda from the governments. People will be liquidated and we will not be able to get news about it. 
      Just stay strong. I am glad you spoke out about Australia.... I have a friend there who is too afraid to talk on internet.  They have already built  Covid "camps" in USA and Australia.... the  ĺorcing all "faith in god" out of everyone..  only worship of the state will be allowed. .... to compromise as many as he can.
      Strengthen yourself. No one can do it for you.
