A series of chain reaction natural disasters has culminated an abnormal seismic catastrophe, dubbed as the Andaman Event by scientists, and its causing the earth to tumble on its axis at the rate of 0.2106 degrees every 24 hours. This epic adventureMoreA series of chain reaction natural disasters has culminated an abnormal seismic catastrophe, dubbed as the Andaman Event by scientists, and its causing the earth to tumble on its axis at the rate of 0.2106 degrees every 24 hours. This epic adventure continues as mankind struggles for its own survival on a planet which is reshaping itself ecologically and geologically with disastrous consequences, threatening the existence of every living thing on its surface. Scientists have calculated that the planet will stop tumbling once its obliquity of the elliptic reaches 90.2 degrees, but by then, the northern hemisphere will be exposed directly into the face of the sun.It takes less than two weeks to plunge the earth back into the dark ages as the effects of the tumble result in the failure of worldwide satellite systems. GPS navigational systems go down, grounding aircraft all around the globe. Satellite TV and communication satellites stop working and meteorologists no longer have the ability to make weather predictions as storms of unparalleled proportions begin to rage around the planet. Temperatures in the northern hemisphere begin to rise dramatically and the daylight hours grow longer, turning it into a vast desert so hot that any living thing will bake to death in a matter of minutes. In retrospect, the southern hemisphere is turning away from the sun where temperatures are plummeting dramatically and the sun will set for one last time leaving a permanent night over a vast area stretching from the equator to Antarctica. The south will become nothing more than a frozen tundra so cold and so hostile that nothing will exist.If mankind is to survive at all, theyll have to pin their hopes on a narrow band which encircles the globe between the 10th and 20th parallels north of the equator. This region is now known as the twilight zone because the sun will hang permanently just above the horizon, but its less than 10% of the earths surface.... and 72% of that 10% is ocean. There will only be enough land mass to sustain 120 million people at the most.Panic and anarchy set in as the largest exodus in the planets history takes place. More than 7 billion people head for the safety of the twilight zone which is now being protected fiercely by the few nations who are lucky enough to share a portion of this region.Truly a disaster of global proportions, these are the stories of people from all walks of life and many nations around the world. No one is immune to the wrath of Mother Nature. President Lloyd Sinclair of the United States implements a border along the 35th parallel, protected by the military in an attempt to prevent anyone north of this boundary from moving south. A huge snowstorm buries the southern half of the South American continent under more than 1,000 feet of snow. President Matvei Bazhenov is set to invade the USA after being convinced by Chairman Yuan Tien that an attempt to attack China would be futile. New York construction worker, Cobra Dickens, his girlfriend, Thelma and several friends attempt to cross the 35th parallel in the midst of the largest hurricane on record. Australians have just 65 days to build a dome over their cities in an effort to protect themselves from the onslaught of cold Antarctic weather conditions.These are just a few of the stories in play and no one can predict the next card Mother Nature will deal from beneath her sleeve......
