Gargoyle Protector?

Gargoyle Protector?

Ren wrote in to tell of a strange sighting he had:

“I had a hard week driving logging truck in northern British Columbia, Canada. I was in a solid sleep when I woke up with an intense sense of fear in the middle of the night. I saw a huge, very powerful dog or gargoyle-kind of creature was standing at the foot of my bed. It scared the crap out of me. I was a very fit and powerful young man back then. About 6'4', 230 pounds and was not used to this feeling. It took all I had to reach for the light on the nightstand and as soon as the light came on it was gone. It took a few minutes for the hairs on my neck to relax. Next day, I told a very close friend what had happened. He looked at me for a few seconds and responded, 'Maybe it was there to protect you'. I have been thinking on that ever since. It's now around 20 years ago. I still think on that. Just a thought.”

'Polio-Like' Illness Spreading

A "polio-like" condition that has left children in 22 states paralyzed may be more widespread than previously announced due to inadequate testing protocols and voluntary reporting requirements, experts say.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that there have been 62 confirmed cases of Acute Flaccid Myelitis so far this year.

Since the first known outbreak of AFM in 2014, the devastating illness has reemerged with at least 50 confirmed cases between August and October in even-numbered years.

AFM often begins with signs of a respiratory infection but quickly progresses. Within a few hours, patients may have difficulty breathing and develop "flaccid weakness," and one or more limbs may become paralyzed.

Powerful Earthquakes Detected Off Vancouver Island

Several powerful earthquakes have been reported near Vancouver Island, Canada, including a magnitude 6.8.

The U.S. Geological Survey says several powerful quakes were reported Sunday evening. The of the depth the largest is about 6 miles (10 kilometers) and it struck about 149 miles (239 kilometers) west of Tofino, Canada.

Geophysicist Amy Vaughan says the three larger quakes ranged from magnitude 6.5 to 6.8 and that there were possibly some smaller ones as well as some aftershocks. Vaughan says the quakes were lightly felt onshore and that as of now no injuries were reported.

The National Tsunami Warning Center tweeted that a tsunami is “Not expected.” Read more at Several powerful earthquakes strike off the shore of Canada
