Misfortune Monday: The Many Flavors of Chaos

It's not hard to come up with ways that things could go wrong. The world is unpredictable. You could find a dangerous animal somewhere you'd rather not want to. You could get totally covered in paint during an accident. You could spill a whole bunch of eggs or a boulder could crush your car. As many flavors of failure and chaos there seem to be, life just keeps inventing more.

The White Island Volcano Eruption

The White Island Volcano, off of the coast of New Zealand, known as Whakaari, erupted on Monday December 9th. The tourism hotspot had a number of boats and tourists in the area, and unfortunately around 50 people were on the island at the time of the explosion. So far authorities confirmed 6 dead and 29 in intensive care with burns ranging from 40 to 95%. Rescue efforts are stymied as the volcano has shown signs that another eruption is imminent, and there a number of people still missing.  

Hospitals have ordered 1.2 million square kilometers of skin in order to make sure to have enough to treat the patients, and any additional patients that may be discovered. These are some glimpses of the explosion and aftermath.

TomorrowWorld closing creates a disaster for thousands of EDM fans.

Do you need more evidence for why huge music festivals sound terrible? Here you go:



Thousands of buzzes were killed when the five-day EDM festival TomorrowWorld was abruptly cancelled Sept. 27 due to rain. Without warning or exit strategy for the some thousands of folks who flocked to rural Georgia, the event organizers closed parking lots and the gates. Things got ugly.



Atlanta Magazine got to talk with some of the stranded ravers.

When Linda made the 30-mile trek yesterday from Midtown to Chattahoochee Hills for TomorrowWorld, she was ready for the rain, but figured the festival had a contingency plan in place for the 160,000 people expected to attend the five-day, four-night electronic dance music festival. But once Dutch DJ Hardwell wrapped up his headlining set, walking off stage around 1 o'clock this morning, Linda was shocked at what came next: a five-mile walk to a shuttle stop; a four-hour wait for a bus that never arrived; and a $200 Uber ride that got her back home at 7:30 a.m. Others weren't as lucky.

"Some people just gave up, sleeping on the side of the road, with no street lights," said Linda, an Atlanta resident, who declined to give her last name. "You had no cell phone service. It was a recipe for disaster."



Early Sunday morning, TomorrowWorld organizers said that only the 40,000 people "currently camping at DreamVille" would be able to enjoy the last day of the festival, leaving the rest of those 120,000 to figure it out.

Yikes.







TommorrowWorld organizers have said they would provide refunds but have not given out specifics on it yet.
