U.S Disaster, 1st Week of August, 2014

A U.S. disaster signal has been detected by the MoodCompass Project team after many months of little to no U.S. disaster activity.  It should be of significant emotional impact to most people within the U.S., and will most likely include loss of life greater than seen in average news stories; economic losses are also likely.

We will wait a few more days before presenting further information about the likely type of disaster while we sift through our data, and get additional information.

A disaster signal is generated when the relationship between U.S. social focus (social mood measured by top Google Hot Trends) and social mood factors found in the top U.S. news stories meets certain criteria.  You can see in the chart below, that the U.S. disaster mood factor today spiked up from the low range area it normally hovers in.  This means that there is a significant risk of a U.S. disaster in the near future, most likely between 7 and 14 days from now, or August 1 - 8.

The second chart (below), is a snap shot of the intensity of these factors.  The greatest specific threat showing up as of today is mass violence or terrorism.  However, we will be getting more information in the next few days.
