"Like Driving Into Hell" - Los Angeles' 405 Freeway Shutdown As Wildfires Spread

Tyler Durden's picture

While many people would argue that driving on LA roads is "like hell" on a good day, today is a very bad day as wildfires and shut the shockingly busy 405 Freeway in both directions...

This is what drivers are facing...

 

Traffic nightmare...

As KTLA reports, The fire started near the 405 Freeway and Mulholland Drive just before 5 a.m., Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said.

The fire had burned about 50 acres as of 5:30 a.m., according to Stewart.

Aerial video from Sky5 showed the fire burning on the east side of the freeway, the Getty Center is located to the west of the 405.

A SigAlert was issued for the closure of all northbound lanes on the 405 Freeway just after 5 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol’s traffic incident log.

The freeway was likely to be impacted for the rest of the morning, Stewart said. “It is going to be a significant commute issue.”

Nothing to see here.

Move along.

Exit plans are useful in a wide variety of circumstances.  For example, if you commute into a major city, or live in one, then it is probably a good idea to have a plan to get the fuck out if the shit hits the fan and when everyone else is freaking out.

Time to call in the cloud seeding drones.  Wait, you say too much rain will cause mudslides - well then gotta let it burn.

Welcome to the Hot El California!

Bet you this was arson as well.

In regards to rain, cloud seeding, and chemtrails, take a look into orgone energy and material that produces it.

There have been a number of people making and gifting orgonite across California and as a result we have our skies back. Our neighborhood in the OC has its own weather pattern now (and chemtrails never stick overhead).

Tim foil hats help too (damn cell towers!).

Does Musk have a company building orgone accumulators to power his vehicles?

Ristretto X4's picture

I've got an orgone accumulator
And it makes me feel greater
I'll see you sometime later
When I'm through with my accumulator

It's no social integrator
It's a one man isolator
It's a back brain stimulator
It's a cerebral vibrator
Of orgones
It's made out of orgones

Energy stimulators
Just turn your eyeballs into craters
But an orgone accumulator
Is a superman creator

It's no social integrator
It's a one man isolator
It's a back brain stimulator
A cerebral vibrator
Of orgones
Of orgones
Orgones

I've got an orgone accumulator
And it makes me feel greater
I will see you sometime later
When I'm through with my accumulator

It's no social integrator
It's a one man isolator
It's a back brain stimulator
A cerebral vibrator
Of orgones
Of orgones
Of orgones
It's all gone
It's all gone
It's orgones
It's orgones

Mycroft Holmes IV - did you really just say Tim foil?

So who is this Tim, and who is he foiling?

C'mon, CIA paid 'migrants' to light fires.  It's so much cheaper (and they're expendable.)

What severed the power lines??  

Megavolts and heat <=> electric resistance feedback loop

More likely it is some sort of high frequency generator that creates sympathetic nodes of reinforcement.  

There are reports of blue flashes in the sky, probably electrical discharge.  Also, houses were igniting  but not the nearby trees and grassy regions between the houses.  Cars were also caching fire, even if they were isolated from grasslands in the middle of roads and parking lots.

Lasers could also be used to ignite different areas, and this would be normal heating, say to start grassfires.   I see two methods, the high voltage/high frequency method to charge the atmosphere, and lasers.  

Bad actors cannot be allowed into government.  There has to be some sort of screening process, especially because democracy is such a weak form... easy to subvert and punk the people, especially with money.

Think of it this way, if your brain is infested by a parasite, you will malfunction.  Hungary had a constitutional kingdom that lasted nearly 1000 years.  During that period it worked for its people, not against them.

the irony of all ironies...is that, to save "native habitat" we have outlawed many of the things we used to do to help PREVENT the spreading of wildfires in California....now, EVERYTHING gets cooked well done.  plants, animals, insects, etc...

...so, where are the enviro do-gooders...shouldn't they be protesting these fires?  Nope, they're curled up in the corner of their bedroom sniveling and pretending like they have nothing to do with the total destruction of the habitat they pretend to care so much about.

Remember the good ole days, when dirt bikers carved trails through the california hills which by default helped supress the spreading of fires....ah, the good ole days.  Where is that enduro anyway.

Your 100 percent on point, now these people are living in environments that essentially are doing what they are supposed to do.  Which is to burn and be left to burn and also have mudslides.

I rode the fire trails around Redding back in 1967-1969.

Were those eliminated by the greenies to protect some invasive species?

Governor Moonbeam is gonna have to increase carbon taxation on Californians for his monumental error in not putting this thing out when it was only 50 acres.

I mean, that's how it's done these days, they fuck up and da peeps get to pay...besides...it's killing the planet!  ;-)

And all the additional tax revenue will go where it always goes: into the endless black hole of gold-plated CALPERS pension funds. 'Cuz it's fer the kids 'n sheeit.

There is something highly unusual about these fires. So cal typically gets fires in august thru October. But in December? It wasn't even that hot in Ventura. Fire bugs are keeping busy it seems.

VisionQuest's picture

Agenda 21. When it comes to California, arson is a useful tool in the Agenda 21 toolbox. Clears the land of human habitation very effeciently. Legal obstacles to rebuilding abound. California is the globalists' designated dwellingplace, with just enough peons & serfs to handle the grunt-work. Goodbye, old California, goodbye.

If magma rises to just under the surface under hot springs, under long dormant volvanoes can roots start to burn?  Mt. Ranier ecperienced a 2.0 EQ in it's caldera a few days ago. Underground activity is happening.

 In our area we've had explosions / death from underground methane.pockets.   Not recently though.  That story was about 10 years ago in the east.
