“It’s an enormous quantity of snow compared with what we normally get in winter and it’s had a heavy impact, the equivalent of a flood,” said Cavalera.
Brughitta agreed that conditions were exceptional: “Maybe every 30 years it gets this cold, but it’s very rare.” http://www.cnn.com/2012/02/15/world/europe/italy-snow-damage-colosseum-monuments/index.html?hpt=hp_c1
I just talked about how Mars retrograde on Denebola can cause natural disasters in this article, https://lillianstar.wordpress.com/2012/02/15/well-mars-is-still-retrograde/
It’s possible that Mars on Denebola shows this. I’ll be relieved when Mars moves away from this degree, because natural disasters do seem to strike while it’s activated. Luckily, this was a mild form of a natural disaster and no lives were lost, but these landmarks are very important. I hope they can be made sound once again.
I think that Neptune moving into Pisces can also be a cause of this. Neptune is water. When Neptune changes into a new sign it’s very potent and can herald natural phenomena, especially floods.
The Honduras Prison Fire that killed 358 people seems to have a Denebola feel to it as well. “Denebola” — it even sounds treacherous, like a disease, doesn’t it??
“The fire was one of the worst tragedies of its kind in decades in Latin America and focused renewed attention on the often poor conditions of prisons in the region.” (CNN)
