Dateline:  Tuesday August 20, 2019    First Report:   7:17 PM SLT

Burnside and Spector Regions,  Northern Bellisseria.


Dark green pea soup skies were seen rolling in off the northern sea as dusk settled on Bellisseria Tuesday evening.  Reports are still sketchy and access to the area is limited, but it is reported that high velocity straight line winds moved through the high ground of the Burnside Region obliterating all trees and roads. 

A severe tornado from the same weather system is being blamed for as many as 6 traditional homes being blown away in the Spector Region. 

The severe weather was followed by a hazy but mostly cloudless sunset over Bellisseria as those in the area surveyed extensive damage.  Confidential sources on the scene maintain that a Mole was heard to say, "Ohhh, I didn't do this!" when Bellisseria's new nuclear towers were brought up as a potential culprit.  Citizens are reminded to use caution while eating or drinking until Geiger measurements can be ascertained through independent laboratories.  Bellisseria residents are asked to return to their rightful owners any transfer/no copy items that may be found.

Moles on the scene have assured citizens that conditions will be returned to normal as Lindens report to work Wednesday morning.

More images are in from the disaster zone. Despite the eerie skies, concerned citizens were advised that "the sky is not falling" by an unnamed official source.

Sunset showed the stark landscape while residents assessed the damage to their homes. The streetlights mysteriously remained unscathed by the winds.

I certainly hope everyone was evacuated to safety & the Moles will have the area safe for returning Bellisserians (& grats to whomever got the house completely surrounded by mountains- that's a sweet plot!)

That is when regions are being restarted. Pink/red on the map means the region is offline. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes then they are back on again. This is done once a week.

I know all of us at SLR-SAR are very appreciative of the Bellisseria Oceongraphic Institute stepping in to render aid. But, without intending to disparage the SLCG in any way, I think it is fair to point out that they are the Second Life *Coast Guard* and Bellisseria is a vast continent with vast inland areas and many non-marine hazards. So I am not sure that SLCG is the right responder in those areas or to this type of hazard.

SLR-SAR, while more generalized to handle both land and sea operations, is also not the right agency for every emergency. We have seen that when some houses have caught fire and the only response SLR-SAR could provide was air dropped fire suppression, which put out the fire, but also caused serious localized flooding resulting in the entire neighborhood being washed away. We have had to field some phone calls from various Bellisseria residents who reported their houses missing and asked us to search for them, for example. 

So I hope the Bellisseria government (where did that town clerk go?) will step up and develop a full emergency response system including a fire and rescue department, police, and other first responders so that the Bellisseria Oceanographic Institute can focus on studying the sea, SLR-SAR can focus on maritime and land search and rescue, and the SLCG can focus on maritime search and rescue and law enforcement.
