Ecuador – Extreme flooding in the Ecuadoran Amazon has caused widespread disarray along the banks of the Bobonaza River, all amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past couple of weeks, the surging water levels have left hundreds homeless, washing away homes, schools, crops, animals and a bridge in the Sarayaku indigenous community. The floods have also affected the Pacayaku and Teresa Mama indigenous communities.

The capital city of Sanaa is the most affected city by the disaster and there has been electricity cut since April 21 in Aden. Underlining that polluted water sources increase the risk of malaria and cholera epidemic, more than 110,000 suspicious cholera cases have been detected in Yemen since January this year.

California’s Earthquake ‘Pause’

California is experiencing a century-long lull in large, ground-rupturing earthquakes, temblors that actually offset the earth at the surface. The 7.9-magnitude Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 was a ground-rupturing quake. Now, new research finds that this 100-year earthquake gap is very unlikely to be a statistical fluke. Instead, something geological is probably causing the peaceful period. The average number of ground-rupturing earthquakes per century is about three or four. This century has had zero, so a good bet is that the next century will be busier.
