TOPIC:  LARGE EARTHQUAKES IN RECENT YEARS

 

DREAM FROM 5-19-13

5-19-13 - NAP DREAM - I was vacuuming up little black bits that were strewn around on the carpet and wondering how that was going to change the layout of the page I had just done.

 

*************************

 

5-22-13 - MEDITATION:  I was feeling inwardly extremely chilled...  I could not get warm no matter how many sweaters, jacket, and blanket I put over me ... I continued to shiver with chills inwardly.

 

I was half laying down in my meditation chair, covered with a blanket and still shivering inside when I heard an inner telephone ring very loudly.

 

Suddenly a woman, dressed all in black appeared, and she was leaning forward on a table with her hands planted firmly on the table and spoke to me like she was telling me something, though I could not actually hear what she said.

 

She looked like Lily, who is on the TV show, The Young and the Restless. 

 

When I started meditating on who this woman was, it came to me that it was not a goddess named Lily, but Lilith/Hecate.

 

That makes her one of the Lunar Triple Goddesses, and on the 24th is an Eclipse which I understand is supposed to open a portal to bring in all sorts of things, including DNA, bad CME'S and always with Eclipses, we get EARTHQUAKES.

Explosive activity of Vanuatu’s Mt Yasur volcano increases

Posted on May 30, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

 

May 30, 2013VANUATU - Explosive activity at Vanuatu’s Mt Yasur volcano has increased in recent days.

 

According to observations by the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geohazards department, the activity level of the volcano on Tanna Island is still at alert level 2 but an increase to 3 in the near future is possible.

 

The risk of volcanic projections near the volcano crater remains as thick steam and ash is being emitted from active vents, with ash fall in communities downwind.

 

An increase in activity was noted in early April when bombs were ejected from the volcano to the parking area below the summit cone, and the activity status was raised from 1 to 2. It is recommended that all communities, visitors and travel agents take the current situation seriously. –Radio NZ

MAGNIFICENT COMET TAIL: This week, Earth passed through the orbital plane of Comet Pan-Starrs. This allowed observers to see the comet's fan-shaped tail edge on. Veteran astrophotographer Chris Schur of Payson, Arizona, judged it "the finest long anti-tail we have ever imaged in the past 35 years of comet photography!" This picture, taken by Pete Lawrence of Selsey UK, shows less than half of the comet's tail; click on the image to see the rest:

 

"Wow - as Earth crossed the orbital plane of comet C/2011 L4 PANSTARRS, the comet's orbital plane spike or 'anti-tail' became very impressive, stretching for more than 7 degrees across the sky," says Lawrence.

 

The narrow linear structure is called an anti-tail because it points toward the sun, opposite the usual direction of comet tails. In fact, this is an artifact of the viewing geometry. Gas and dust evaporating from the comet is not being sucked back toward the sun.

 

Amateur astronomers with mid-sized backyard telescopes can see the anti-tail for themselves. Comet Pan-Starrs is shining like a 9th magnitude star not far from Polaris, the North Star.

4.6 magnitude earthquake strikes off Santa Barbara coast

Posted on May 29, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

 

May 29, 2013 – CALIFORNIA - A magnitude-4.6 earthquake struck off the Santa Barbara coast Wednesday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

 

The temblor struck at 7:38 a.m. about three miles west of Isla Vista, the USGS reported. Initial reports indicated that the quake had a magnitude of 4.9, but that was later adjusted to 4.6.

 

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department said there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. Dozens of people stretching from Bakersfield to Manhattan Beach reported feeling the quake on the USGS “Did you feel it?” site.

 

Others weighed in on social media. “That was a shaker!” @Larsonomics tweeted. “It has definitely been a while since I was woken up by an earthquake. Thanks Santa Barbara,” @SnsetStripLocal wrote. A magnitude-2.6 aftershock struck at 7:50 a.m. in the same spot, the USGS said. –LA Times

 

Earthquake in Irish Sea causes intense shaking in North Wales: largest quake in 29 years

Posted on May 29, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

   

May 29, 2013WALES – An earthquake on the North Wales shoreline has been felt over an area of 140 km. People were woken by the quake which happened at around 4.15 am and was felt as far away as Southport in Merseyside.

 

The epicenter was 13km northwest of the town of Abersoch, Gwynedd, on the Lleyn Peninsula and measured a magnitude of 3.8, the British Geological Survey (BGS) said. Some 180 reports from people who felt the earthquake have been made to the BGS, who said the majority were within a 50 to 75 km radius.

 

Assistant seismologist Julian Bukits of the BGS said: “This was the biggest in the area since a 4.3 in August 1984, which was an aftershock to the 5.4 earthquake in July 1984, which was the biggest on shore earthquake in the UK ever. An earthquake of 3.8 magnitude might occur once every 12 to 18 months.

 

It was felt in the Isle of Man to the north, Southport to the north east, and the east coast of Ireland to the west.” Mr. Bukits said the quake, the epicentre of which was at a depth of 8 km, was not big enough to cause damage.

 

“People were woken from their sleep and have described the shaking as moderate,” he said. “They described the shaking as a trembling feeling. People reported windows and crockery rattling.”

 

The epicenter was 20km south west of the 5.4 Lleyn Peninsula quake in July 1984, which did cause some minor damage. Tom Coleman, of Talysarn, Gwynedd, told the BBC: “I was awoken at about 4.15am this morning by what sounded like a deep rumble of thunder then strong shuddering, some of the bedroom furniture rattled. It must have lasted for about half a minute. At first I thought it was just a loud clap of thunder but when the furniture started shaking I realized it must be some sort of earth tremor.”

 

And Janet Bord, of Ruthin, Denbighshire, told the BBC: “I was woken around 4.15 am by a sensation like the bed was ‘rippling’. It was over very quickly and I put it down to imagination – until I heard there had been an earthquake. When I checked the time and found it had happened at 4.16, I realised that that is what I must have felt.”

 

The Irish National Seismic Network (INSN) said tremors were felt in counties in south-east Ireland and its seismic stations in Valentia off the south-west coast, Donegal and Galway all recorded the earthquake.

 

Tom Blake, INSN director and from the school of cosmic physics in the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, said there has been a significant increase in seismic activity in the area in recent months.

 

“It is unlikely that the magnitude of today’s earthquake will be exceeded in the Irish Sea in the coming days but aftershocks can be expected in the hours and days ahead, although many will be too weak to be felt,” he said. The BGS later reported that the earthquake had also been felt in Liverpool, Mold, Cardigan, and Wicklow, Ireland. –Independent UK

Gamkonora volcano (Indonesia) - Seismic swarm triggers eruption alert. Increased earthquake activity has triggered an eruption alert by VSI, who raised the volcano's status to 3 out of 4. Indonesian volcanologists reported that the degassing plume from the summit crater of the volcano has increased.

Underwater volcano mapped in Southeast Alaska - The yet-to-be-named volcano differs from many on the ocean floor. Its top was likely above the water when it last erupted some 10,000 years ago.

TROPICAL STORMS -

In the Eastern Pacific -
Tropical Storm Barbara was located 145 mi (230 km) SSW of Salina Cruz, Mexico. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Lagunas de Chacahua to Boca de Pijijiapan, Mexico. Additional strengthening is forecast before Barbara reaches the coast of Mexico today.

'Below-normal' cyclone season forecast for central Pacific - The Central Pacific Hurricane Centre says the central Pacific basin is likely to have a below-normal hurricane season with one to three cyclones. For 2013 in the northern hemisphere, there is a 70 per cent chance of a below-normal season.

Hurricane center to refine alerts - The National Hurricane Center plans to expand the Tropical Weather Outlook of potential storm-producing weather to a five-day outlook. The Tropical Weather Outlook issued by the National Hurricane Center traditionally assesses whether weather systems might turn into a tropical cyclone development "during the 48 hours." "We hope to expand that 48 hours to five days."

Active hurricane season ahead, forecasters say - Since 2000, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's tropical storm and hurricane forecasts have been more right than wrong, but not by much: the NOAA's prediction has been accurate in seven out of the past 13 years.

SEVERE RAIN STORMS, FLOODING, LANDSLIDES -

3 dead, 200+ rescued after severe floods swamp San Antonio, Texas - The wet weather plaguing many parts of the U.S. over the holiday weekend turned fatal in sodden San Antonio. One person is dead, another is missing and nearly a hundred more have been rescued as heavy rain has pummeled the Texas city, causing flash flooding.


The majority of rescues were people trapped in their vehicles in low-lying areas of the city. A 29-year-old woman who was trapped in her vehicle and tried to escape the rising water by climbing onto the car’s roof was washed away, and her body was found down the road against a fence. A man who had been trapped in his vehicle is unaccounted for.


San Antonio received 12.16 inches of rain in the 24 hours ending at 11 a.m. Central Time on Saturday. That is just shy of the 24-hour record for the city of 13.35 inches in October 1998. 9.87 inches of that came Saturday morning alone, the nearly ten inches drenching them in eight hours.

Illinois - On Tuesday, one person was injured and around 70 trailers were damaged in Springfield, Illinois, when straight line winds of up to 80 mph whipped the area.

Southaven, Mississppi declared a state of emergency after floods inundated homes. Some areas received nearly five inches of rainfall Tuesday evening (5/21), which is MORE THAN A MONTH'S WORTH OF RAINFALL.

CLIMATE CHANGE -

Centuries-old frozen plants revived - Plants that were frozen during the "Little Ice Age" centuries ago have been observed sprouting new growth, scientists say. Samples of 400-year-old plants known as bryophytes have flourished under laboratory conditions. Researchers say this back-from-the-dead trick has implications for how ecosystems recover from the planet's cyclic long periods of ice coverage.


High in the Canadian Arctic, the glaciers in the region have been receding at rates that have sharply accelerated since 2004, at about 3-4m per year. That is exposing land that has not seen light of day since the so-called Little Ice Age, a widespread climatic cooling that ran roughly from AD 1550 to AD 1850.

"We ended up walking along the edge of the glacier margin and we saw these huge populations coming out from underneath the glacier that seemed to have a greenish tint."


Bryophytes are different from the land plants that we know best, in that they do not have vascular tissue that helps pump fluids around different parts of the organism. They can survive being completely desiccated in long Arctic winters, returning to growth in warmer times, but scientists were surprised by an emergence of bryophytes that had been buried under ice for so long.


"When we looked at them in detail and brought them to the lab, I could see some of the stems actually had new growth of green lateral branches, and that said to me that these guys are regenerating in the field, and that blew my mind. If you think of ice sheets covering the landscape, we've always thought that plants have to come in from refugia around the margins of an ice system, never considering land plants as coming out from underneath a glacier."


But the retreating ice at Sverdrup Pass, where the Teardrop Glacier is located, is uncovering an array of life, including cyanobacteria and green terrestrial algae. Many of the species spotted there are entirely new to science.

 

 "It's a whole world of what's coming out from underneath the glaciers that really needs to be studied. The glaciers are disappearing pretty fast - they're going to expose all this terrestrial vegetation, and that's going to have a big impact."

HEALTH THREATS -

Researchers find easy development of H7N9 Tamiflu resistance - Antiviral drugs such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu) are useful for treating H7N9 influenza infections, but there are worrisome signs that resistance can easily develop when patients take the drug, which can lead to a poor prognosis, researchers from China and Hong Kong reported.


Study of H7N9 cases shows extent of severe disease - Researchers from China published a detailed clinical analysis of 111 patients sickened in the country's H7N9 influenza outbreak that showed how severe patients' illnesses have been, with 77% admitted to intensive care units.

New MERS-CoV case reported as puzzles persist - Saudi Arabia reported that a foreigner died yesterday of a MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) infection, while health officials in Jordan offered new details -- some of them puzzling -- about a hospital cluster of cases that occurred there in April 2012.


Saudi Arabia reports 5 more MERS-CoV cases - Saudi Arabia reported that five more people have been infected with the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), as if to underline the warning from the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) that the novel virus is a global threat.

Magnitude 7.0 earthquake gently rocks Wellington, NZ

Posted on May 28, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

 

May 28, 2013NEW ZEALAND - The equivalent of a magnitude 7 quake is quietly rocking the capital, though until now you’d have only noticed it if you were a geophysicist.

 

The huge underground movement called the Kapiti Slip is responsible, and it’s not over yet.  “This is what we call a silent earthquake,” Geonet scientist Caroline Little said on Firstline this morning. “Instead of this movement happening in seconds, this will take around a year to move.”

 

Normal earthquakes release all their energy when one side of a fault suddenly slips past the other, and can be incredibly destructive – as the people of Christchurch know all too well. But in a silent earthquake the energy is released slowly, and in some cases can be predicted in advance.

 

“We started recording with the GPS network in 2002, and since then this is the third Kapiti event we’ve seen,” says Ms. Little. “Both of the previous two have lasted around the year mark. Interestingly it’s occurred every five years – 2003, 2008 and then this one in 2013.”

 

Slow-slip quakes are relatively recent discovery, and their effect on conventional quakes is still being researched. “It does change the stress around the area, and these types of events have been known to interact with conventional earthquakes,” says Ms Little.

 

 “We had another event like this around Kapiti in 2008, and that actually caused a swarm of earthquakes – tiny earthquakes – around the Upper Hutt region, around 30 earthquakes around magnitude 2 and 3.”

 

It’s not apparent whether they increase or decrease the likelihood of a major quake, like the one in Christchurch. “It’s both, really, because it changes the stress in different areas. It could go both ways,” says Ms Little.

 

The Kapiti Slip is occurring 40km beneath the Earth’s surface, and stretches 100km between Kapiti and Marlborough. It’s not a phenomenon unique to the area, or even New Zealand.

 

 “It happens in four regions in the North Island of New Zealand, and it also happens at all the other subduction zones around the world like Japan and North America,” says Ms Little. A slow-slip quake happens in the Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne every one-to-two years, at only 10 to 15km deep. GeoNet estimates around 40 percent of the North Island’s tectonic plate movement occurs in slow slips. -3News

 

Another major earthquake on New Madrid is inevitable, geologists say it’s only a matter of time

Posted on May 27, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

  

May 27, 2013 – It is difficult to prepare for a geological catastrophe the public cannot see and has never experienced.

 

“We mostly react to disasters, and it’s been extremely rare that we get ahead of things,” said Claire Rubin, a disaster response specialist in Arlington, Va. “A lot of hard problems don’t get solved. They get moved around and passed along.”

 

Steven L. Lueker is among disaster response officials who worry about the New Madrid fault and another fault to the north, in the Wabash Valley. He’s the emergency management coordinator for Jefferson County in Southern Illinois, and he rattles off likely impact statistics.

 

One of the most important: The New Madrid fault is expected to generate a large-scale earthquake within the next 50 years.

 

“I may not be here when it happens,” said Lueker. “Or it may happen while we’re talking. You don’t know.”

 

When it does happen, Lueker said Mount Vernon, the Jefferson County seat, likely will be a staging area for support flowing into Tennessee and Missouri — unless the Mount Vernon airport itself is too damaged. He doesn’t — can’t — know.  

 

Uncertainty is the maddening aspect of earthquakes. They can’t be predicted, even very big ones. We know they happen frequently along the Earth’s tectonic plates. We also know there are no such plates in the central United States, yet that part of the country has had major earthquakes in three zones: the New Madrid fault, which on computer models looks like Harry Potter’s scar slashing across Arkansas, Missouri and Tennessee; the Wabash Valley fault in Illinois and Indiana; and the East Tennessee Seismic Zone that runs into Alabama.  

 

These are not like the faults in California, which last had a major earthquake in 1994, when the magnitude 6.7 Northridge temblor killed 57 people and caused $20 billion in damages. The mid-continent faults rupture less often; New Madrid gets the shakes maybe 200 times a year, about a tenth the number in California. And earthquakes in the central United States tend to be smaller.

 

The New Madrid fault appears to have a big rupture every 300 years or so; the Wabash Valley has one perhaps every 500 years.  But when quakes do hit the central United States, geology means they are felt much farther away, because the Earth’s crust in the region does not absorb the shock waves in the way it does in the Western United States.

 

“The Northridge earthquake was barely felt in Las Vegas, 250 miles away,” said Gary Patterson, director of education and outreach at the Center for Earthquake Research and Information at the University of Memphis. “Here, a large quake would be felt 1,200 miles away in Canada.”

 

Not everyone thinks the New Madrid fault will produce another big earthquake. Seth Stein, a geologist at Northwestern University, has argued that the small quakes occurring along the fault are not the kind that suggests the Earth is gathering energy for a large one.

 

“He’s a smart guy,” said Patterson. “But it’s interesting that you have to go 500 miles away from the fault to find a scientist who disagrees with the consensus” that another New Madrid quake is inevitable.  At the same time, Patterson and others concede it is difficult to explain why the faults in the central United States are active at all. –DDC

Copahue volcano alert level raised to red: Chile, Argentina orders evacuations

Posted on May 28, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

 

May 28, 2013CHILE – Chilean and Argentine authorities on Monday declared a red alert and ordered the mandatory evacuation of a 25-km (15.5-mile) radius around the active Copahue volcano, which straddles the border between the two Andean nations.

 

The volcano – located some 500 km (310 miles) south of capital Santiago, between Chile’s Bio Bio region and Argentina’s Neuquen province – has seen increasing seismic activity in recent weeks but has not erupted, Chilean authorities said.

 

“This doesn’t necessarily mean the volcano will start erupting. But according to the Sernageomin (National Geological and Mining Service), the volcano is now in a process that could culminate in an eruption, for that reason we’ve issued a red alert and the evacuation,” Chilean Interior Minister Andres Chadwick told a nationally televised news conference.

 

Authorities estimated that some 2,240 people will be evacuated in Chile. In Argentina’s Neuquen province, authorities also declared a “red alert,” and ordered the evacuation of some 900 people in tourist-haven Caviahue-Copahue. The Argentine municipality had previously ordered the cancellation of school classes.

 

Close to the Chilean side of the volcano, in Bio Bio region, power generator Endesa Chile operates the Ralco and Pangue hydroelectric dams, which have not been affected by the evacuation order. Endesa Chile is monitoring the situation, a company source told Reuters. Water levels at the dams are at technical lows, which would avoid the possible need to open the floodgates, and the dams’ walls are designed to withstand earthquakes, the source said.

 

In mid-2011, ash from a volcano in Chile’s Puyehue-Cordon Caulle chain that erupted, after decades of lying dormant, forced the sporadic cancellation of hundreds of flights, especially in neighboring Argentina and Uruguay. –Reuters

Heavy rains turn roads into rivers in Norway

Posted on May 28, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

 

May 28, 2013NORWAY - Flooding has forced hundreds of people to evacuate from their homes in eastern Norway. The weather has been unsettled across the region over recent weeks, and in just the last couple of days the rain has turned very heavy.

 

Lillehammer reported 64mm of rain on Wednesday, which is more than is expected in the entire month. Melting snow has also added to the problems.

 

On 18 and 19 May, the temperatures in Lillehammer soared to 29C. In the surrounding mountains, this sudden rise in temperature caused the snow to suddenly melt. As the water poured down the mountainside, some of the rivers burst their banks.

 

One of the worst hit towns was Kvam, which is situated along the Gudbrandsdalslagen River. Diggers were being used to try and alter the path of the flood water, but work had to be abandoned because the conditions became too hazardous. 250 people had to be evacuated from the town.

 

Jens Stoltenberg, Norwegian prime minister, visited the town on Thursday to inspect the damage for himself.

 

The saturated ground also triggered several landslides. One in Nesbyen, Buskerud County, was 20 meters wide. The flooding and landslides forced dozens of roads and two major railway lines to shut, but fortunately there have been no reported injuries. –Yahoo News

Train collides with big-rig and derails, with explosion, flames near Baltimore, Maryland

Posted on May 28, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

 

Bad Luck Blues: U.S. transportation infrastructure continues to reel from a series of accidents and mishaps in recent days, from collapsed bridges and overpasses, to train derailments.

 

May 28, 2013MARYLAND – A cargo train derailed Tuesday afternoon in the Rosedale area, damaging nearby buildings, shutting down US Route 40 and causing a loud explosion that could be felt miles away.

 

Authorities in Baltimore County said the train struck a tractor trailer near the 7500 block of Lake Drive, veering off the tracks near an industrial park. Initial reports were that no one was hurt, but officials later said the driver of the trailer was extricated and his condition was not immediately clear.

 

It was also unclear what the train was carrying. Hazardous material teams from the region were on the scene. MTA spokesman Terry Owens said the agency did not expect any disruption of service on the Penn Line between Baltimore and Perryville, which operates on Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor.

 

Minor delays were possible on the CSX-owned Camden Line between Washington and Baltimore’s Camden Station, as CSX shuffles previously scheduled freight trains.

 

U.S. 40 was closed westbound at Rosedale Road, and closed eastbound at 64th Street. The State Highway Administration also said the I-95, I-895 and I-695 ramps to Route 40 were closed.

 

The train did not appear to have made contact with the buildings, aerial images from television news showed. The train cars were flipped, with thick black smoke continuing to billow as a fire burned. Emergency crews did not appear to be engaging the fire.

SOLAR WIND STORM: For the third day in a row, a remarkably fast (600 km/s - 700 km/s) stream of solar wind is blowing around Earth. This is causing magnetic unrest around the poles as well as elevated levels of high-energy electrons in Earth orbit. NOAA cautions satellite operators that "satellite systems may experience significant charging" in response to accumulated electrons.

 

BEAUTIFUL VENUS-JUPITER PAIRING: The sunset triangle of May 26th is breaking up, but the show is not over. As the triple conjunction disperses, Venus is passing Jupiter only 1 degree away. Watching the two brightest planets move so close together is a wonderful way to end the day. Look west at sunset!

UNUSUAL WEATHER IN NORTHEAST AND TERMITE SWARM IN LA

 

Confused weather drops over 30 inches of snow on Memorial Day weekend

Posted on May 27, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

 

May 27, 2013NEW YORK - It’s a snowy Memorial Day weekend for parts of the U.S. On the aptly named Whiteface Mountain in upstate New York, there are at least 34 inches of snow on the ground.

 

What’s that look like? Glad you asked: According to Weather Underground, a couple of other mountain peaks in Vermont reached 18 inches of snow, while some towns with higher elevations clocked in at about 7 inches of snowfall this weekend.

 

To figure out how unusual the snowfall this weekend was, Weather Underground had to go back to 1816: Most famous of all cold and snowy late season events would have to be the infamous 1816 ‘Year without Summer’ when Tambora erupted (1815) and the snowfall in June that occurred in the eastern U.S. and Canada.

 

Between June 6th and June 8th accumulating snow was observed as far south as the Catskills in New York (where one inch was reported) and highlands of central and northwest Pennsylvania.

 

Snowflakes were seen at sea level as far south as ten miles north of tidewater on the Hudson River just above New York City. But, they note, snowfall in the north east this late in the season hasn’t been unheard of since then: the area tends to get some late season snowfall every 5-10 years. Just not nearly as much as this time. –Atlantic Wire

 

Termites swarm New Orleans, people think it’s the Apocalypse

Posted on May 27, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

 

May 27, 2013NEW ORLEANS, LA – Tens of thousands of formosan termites swarmed New Orleans on Wednesday night, leading many people to believe that the apocalypse had struck the city.

 

The termites were attracted to bright and well-lit devices, which included car headlights, homes, and streetlights. The insects were expected to hit at the beginning of May, but it has been an unusually cold few weeks, and they only made their first appearance on Wednesday night.

 

The Formosan termites were introduced to the United States of America from the Far East during World War Two when they were brought over in crates and various wood products. New Orleans normally sees the creatures appear along Lake Pontchartrain and at the naval shipyard in Algiers.

 

These huge swarms gather and stay in the area because they are only able to fly 300 yards in search of a mate. The pair then drop to the floor and burrow a nest if they are successful, but most of them are unable to find a mate and proper shelter.

 

These colonies normally consist of around five million insects, and it takes around five years to reach a size where the colony can create a version of the termite with wings to restart the flying cycle.

 

Of course, this wasn’t the first faux apocalypse to hit the globe over the last 12 months. The Mayan Apocalypse was supposed to hit earth on December 21 but never materialized, and joined a long list of failed apocalypses.

 

In 1997, Chuck Shramek stated that an alien UFO was following the comet Hale-Bopp as it passed by Earth. Shramek stated that you could only enter the alien ship, which wasn’t designed to kill us but save us from the impending end of the world, if you killed yourself first. Unfortunately for them the apocalypse didn’t follow. –The Inquisitr

 

SPACE WEATHER

 

ELECTRON STORM: In the past 24 hours, the flux of high-energy electrons swarming around Earth has increased more than tenfold. The source of this "electron storm" is a 700 km/s stream of solar wind buffeting Earth's magnetic field. NOAA cautions satellite operators that "satellite systems may experience significant charging" in response to accumulated electrons.

 

NOCTILUCENT CLOUD SEASON BEGINS: Over the weekend, sky watchers in northern Europe and Canada spotted electric-blue tendrils of light reaching out of the western sky at sunset. This signals the beginning of the 2013 season for noctilucent clouds (NLCs). Photographer Silvar Mehik sends this picture from the island of Saaremaa in Estonia:

 

NLCs are Earth's highest clouds. In the upper atmosphere, 80+ km high, tiny ice crystals nucleate around meteoroids and other aerosols. When the crystals catch the rays of the setting sun, they glow electric blue. For reasons that are not fully understood, these highest and coldest of clouds form during the warmest months on the ground--late spring and summer.

 

Noctilucent clouds first appeared in the 19th century after the eruption of super-volcano Krakatoa. At the time, people thoght the clouds were caused by the eruption, but long after Krakatoa's ash settled, the clouds remained. In those days, NLCs were a polar phenomenon confined mainly ro far-northern places such as Scandinavia or Alaska. In recent years they have intensified and spread with sightings as far south as Utah and Colorado. Could this be a sign of climate change? A NASA spacecraft named "AIM" is in orbit to investigate.

 

SUNSET PLANET SHOW: Last night, Venus, Jupiter and Mercury converged to form a bright triangle in the sunset sky. "It was an absolutely amazing sunset planet show," says Marek Nikodem, who photographed the apparition from Szubin, Poland:

 

At closest approach, the three planets fit inside a circle less than 3o wide. It was a rare event. There won't be another triple conjunction this tight until 2026.

 

However, the show's not over. The triangle will stretch and eventually break apart in the nights ahead--and the contortions are worth watching. Keep an eye on the sunset sky all week long. NASA

California Tsunami

California Tsunami

SAN FRANCISCO -- A recent report issued by the United States Geological Survey has found that over a quarter million Californians live in areas highly vulnerable to tsunamis.

 

The report, released in conjunction with national Tsunami Awareness Week and created in partnership with the California Emergency Management Agency, used historical records and geographic modeling to determine the "maximum tsunami inundation zones" along the Golden State coast. These zones include 94 cities and towns, as well as 83 unincorporated communities, comprised of 267,347 residents and over 15,000 businesses.

 

"Having a better sense of the number and type of people that are in tsunami-prone areas of each coastal community allows emergency managers to develop tsunami outreach and preparedness strategies that are tailored to address local conditions and needs," the study's lead author, USGS geographer Nathan Wood, said in a statement. "Tsunami outreach and preparedness opportunities will vary if the at-risk population is a tight-knit community of retired residents, seasonal workers in a bustling port and harbor complex, or tourists on the beach."

 

The majority of workforces in some waterfront cities, such as Belvedere-Tiburon and Emeryville, are employed in areas within the inundation zones. The cities of Alameda, Oakland, Los Angeles, Huntington Beach and San Diego are have the highest number of people and businesses within the inundation zone.

 

Earthquakes occurring across the Pacific Ocean have the potential to trigger tsunamis along the California coast.

 

The most destructive tsunami in American history occurred in Crescent City, just south of the Oregon border, in 1964, following a massive 9.2 magnitude earthquake in Anchorage, Alaska. The wave killed eleven people, destroyed nearly 300 buildings, submerged approximately 60 square blocks and established the small fishing town as the tsunami capital of the United States.

 

The report notes that the Cascadia Subduction Zone, the line between two faults running just off the west coast from Cape Mendocino north to Vancouver Island, has ruptured to create tsunamis seven times in recorded history--with the interval between incidents stretching from 140 to 1,000 years.

 

Tsunamis coming from these types of quakes are precisely why Kevin Miller of the California Emergency Management Agency's Earthquake and Tsunami Program argues that everyone who lives or works in a vulnerable area should make preparations ahead of time.

 

"The most important thing in people preparing themselves for a tsunami is figuring out where the nearest high ground is," Miller told The Huffington Post. "You should have a disaster preparedness kit ready and conduct a practice evacuation drill so you're comfortable doing it if the time comes."

 

Miller noted that some warning signs that a tsunami could be headed your way include water levels that appear unnaturally low, water rapidly rushing in from the ocean or feeling an earthquake that lasted longer than 20 seconds.

Cleveland - 15 May 2013                     
AVO reported that during 14-15 and 18-19 May elevated surface temperatures over Cleveland were observed in satellite images. Clouds obscured views during 16 and 20-21 May. Satellite image analysis revealed that a small lava flow had breached the SE rim of the summit crater and traveled as far as1.5 km down the flank. The Volcanic Alert Level remained at Watch and the Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.


Pavlof - 15 May 2013                       
AVO reported that on 14 May a diffuse ash plume from Pavlof drifted about 160 km NE at an altitude of 4.6 km (15,000 ft) a.s.l. before dissipating. Pilot reports and photographs indicated that the lava flow extending down the NW flank was still active and generated debris-laden flow deposits, presumably from the interaction of hot lava with the snow and ice on the flank. Light ashfall was reported the evening of 14 May in a mining camp 80 km NE of the volcano. No other nearby communities had reported ash fall. During 14-15 May elevated seismicity persisted and steam-and-ash clouds observed with a web camera occasionally rose up to 6.1 km (20,000 ft) a.s.l. Residents in Cold Bay (37 km SW) observed incandescence from the summit during the night. On 15 May a pilot reported a dark ash cloud drifting ENE at an altitude of 6.1 km (20,000 ft) a.s.l.

On 16 May lava fountaining at the summit was observed and photographed, and a continuous ash, steam, and gas cloud extended downwind 50-100 km at an altitude of about 6.1 km (20,000 ft) a.s.l. Satellite images showed persistent elevated surface temperatures at the summit and on the NW flank, commensurate with the summit lava fountaining and resulting lava flow.

During 18-19 May a narrow plume of steam, ash, and gas, occasionally rising up to 6.7 km (22,000 ft) a.s.l., and drifting southeast, was visible in satellite images. Pilot reports indicated that lava fountaining and ash emission continued. Overnight, trace amounts of ash fell on the community of Sand Point. During the afternoon on 19 May pilots reported that ash plumes rose to altitudes of 4.6-6.7 km (15,000-22,000 ft) a.s.l. Trace amounts of ash fell in Nelson Lagoon, 78 km NNE, during 19-20 May. The Volcanic Alert Level remained at Watch and the Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.

A news article stated that on 20 May a regional airline canceled about a dozen flights to several remote communities, including Sand Point. Another regional airline canceled a few flights, but mostly re-routed flights. On 21 May AVO reported that a low-level plume of steam, gas, and ash occasionally rose to an altitude of 6.1 km (20,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted NNE. Trace amounts of ash again fell in Nelson Lagoon.


Popocatépetl - 15 May 2013                       
CENAPRED reported that during 15-21 May seismicity at Popocatépetl indicated continuing gas-and-steam emissions that contained variable amounts of ash; the plumes were sometimes visually confirmed although cloud cover often prevented observations. Incandescence from the crater was often observed at night.

At 0956 on 14 May an explosion generated an ash plume that rose 3 km above the crater and drifted NE, and ejected tephra onto the NE flank at a distance of 600 m. Volcanologists aboard an overflight observed a lava dome 350 m in diameter and 50 m thick, that had slightly deflated after the earlier explosion. An explosion at 0146 on 15 May again generated an ash plume that rose 3 km above the crater, and ejected incandescent tephra onto the flanks at a maximum distance of 1.5 km. At 1804 an explosion produced an ash plume that rose at least 3.5 km and drifted N.

On 16 May gas-and-ash plumes rose 2 km and drifted NE. Minor ashfall was reported in Paso de Cortés, 7 km N. Incandescent tephra was ejected onto the N and NE flanks at a maximum distance of 400 m. The ejections corresponded with several periods of high-frequency, low-amplitude tremor detected between 2020 and 2308, and a swarm that began at 0011 on 17 May. At 2214 an intense explosion ejected incandescent tephra 1.5 km from the crater, and generated an ash plume that rose over 3 km and drifted NE.

At 0028 on 17 May another strong explosion ejected incandescent tephra 1.5 km from the crater, and generated an ash plume that rose over 4 km and drifted NE. Later that day plumes of vapor and gas rose 1 km and drifted SW. During an overflight on 18 May volcanologists observed a crater 200 m wide and 40 m deep in the dome’s surface; the material was likely excavated by the explosions during 14 and 16-17 May. The rest of the dome was covered with rock fragments. Gas-and-ash plumes rose 500 m and drifted SW.

During 19-20 May gas-and-ash plumes drifted E and SW and incandescent tephra was deposited mainly on the NE flanks 400 m away, although most ejected fragments fell back inside the crater. On 21 May steam-and-gas plumes rose a few meters then drifted SSE.


Sangeang Api - 15 May 2013                       
CVGHM reported that during 1-19 May diffuse white plumes rose 10 m above Sangeang Api's crater. Both the lava dome and surrounding areas showed no changes since November 2012. Seismicity had increased on 26 April and remained high. The Alert Level was raised to 3 (on a scale of 1-4) on 19 May. Residents and tourists were advised not to approach the craters within a radius of 5 km.


Tungurahua - 15 May 2013                       
IG reported that during 15-20 May seismicity at Tungurahua remained at a moderate level and then decreased on 21 May. Visual observations were often limited due to cloud cover; steam plumes were observed rising from the crater on 17 and 19 May. A slight amount of ash fell in Choglontus (SW) on 15 May, and small lahars traveled down the Bilbao (W), Pingullo (NW), and La Pampa (S) on 20 May.


Fuego - 15 May 2013                      
INSIVUMEH reported that during 16-17 May white plumes rose 300 m from Fuego’s crater and drifted W and SW. Explosions during 17 and 19-21 May generated ash plumes that rose 350-650 m and drifted 6 km W and SW. On 19 and 21 May explosions ejected incandescent material 100 m above the crater.


Galeras - 15 May 2013                       
INGEOMINAS reported that during 15-21 May seismicity at Galeras was at a low level; during 19-20 May earthquakes with magnitudes 2.6 or less were concentrated in an area 3 km SW at depths near 4 km. Gas plumes rose 500 m above the crater and contained small amounts of ash during 15-16 and 20-21 May. Sulfur dioxide emissions were low. The Alert Level remained at III (Yellow; "changes in the behavior of volcanic activity").


Kilauea - 15 May 2013                       
During 15-21 May HVO reported that the circulating lava lake occasionally rose and fell in the deep pit within Kilauea's Halema'uma'u Crater. The plume from the vent continued to deposit variable amounts of ash, spatter, and Pele's hair onto nearby areas.

At Pu'u 'O'o Crater, glow emanated from three spatter cones and a small lava pond on the E part of the crater floor. Lava from base of Pu'u 'O'o cone traveled N and was named the Kahauale’a II flow. Peace Day activity, fed by lava tubes extending from Pu'u 'O'o, consisted of lava flows active on the coastal plain that were entering the ocean at a location outside the National Park boundary.


Kizimen - 15 May 2013                      
KVERT reported that during 10-16 May moderate seismic activity continued at Kizimen. Video and satellite data showed that lava continued to extrude from the summit, producing incandescence, strong gas-and-steam activity, and hot avalanches on the W and E flanks. A thermal anomaly was detected daily in satellite images. The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.


Manam - 15 May 2013                       
RVO reported that during 29 April-16 May activity at Manam was low, characterized by white, and sometimes blue, vapor plumes rising from Southern Crater. White vapor plumes also rose from Main Crater. Seismicity fluctuated but remained high until 1 May; seismicity then declined to a low on 4 May where it stayed for the rest of the period. RVO reminded people to stay away from the four main radial valleys, and especially the SE and SW ones where most products from the activity at Southern Crater were channeled.


Pacaya - 15 May 2013                       
INSIVUMEH reported that weak incandescence from Pacaya's MacKenney cone was observed through the night during 15-16 May. Blue and white plumes rose 800 m and drifted S. On 17 May white plumes drifted W and NW. Incandescence from the crater was again observed at night during 19-21 May. On 20 and 21 May Strombolian activity ejected material 25 m above the crater.


Rabaul - 15 May 2013                       
RVO reported that during 29 April-16 May white vapor plumes sometimes containing fine ash rose at most 200 m from Rabaul caldera's Tavurvur cone and drifted NW. Ashfall was reported in areas downwind including Rabaul town (3-5 km NW). Roaring and rumbling noises also continued. Seismicity was low.


Sakura-jima - 15 May 2013                       
JMA reported that during 13-17 May Sakura-jima's Showa Crater had 13 explosions ejecting tephra that fell at most 1.8 km from the crater. Crater incandescence was occasionally detected at night. Based on information from JMA, the Tokyo VAAC reported that during 15, 17-18, and 20-21 May explosions produced plumes that rose to altitudes of 1.2-3.7 km (4,000-12,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted E and W. On 21 May a pilot observed an ash plume that rose to an altitude of 3.4 km (11,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted E.


Santa María - 15 May 2013                       
INSIVUMEH reported that on 16 May an explosion from Santa María's Santiaguito lava-dome complex produced an ash plume that rose 600 m and drifted 6 km SE. Ashfall was reported in La Florida and Monte Claro. A lava flow on the NE lava dome traveled S. During 20-21 May a few explosions generated ash plumes that rose 500-700 m and drifted 10 km W and SW.


Shiveluch - 15 May 2013                       
Based on visual observations and analyses of satellite data, KVERT reported that during 10-16 May a viscous lava flow effused on the N flank of Shiveluch's lava dome, accompanied by hot avalanches, incandescence, and fumarolic activity. Satellite imagery showed a daily thermal anomaly on the lava dome. The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.

Based on analyses of satellite imagery and notices from Yelizovo Airport (UHPP), the Tokyo VAAC reported that on 18 May ash plumes rose to an altitude of 5.5 km (18,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted NE.


Tolbachik - 15 May 2013                       
KVERT reported that the S fissure along the W side of Tolbachinsky Dol, a lava plateau on the SW side of Tolbachik, continued to produce very fluid lava flows during 10-16 May that traveled to the W, S, and E sides of the plateau. Cinder cones continued to grow along the S fissure and gas-and-ash plumes were observed. A large thermal anomaly on the N part of Tolbachinsky Dol was visible daily in satellite imagery. The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.

5-19-13 - MEDITATION:  I  decided to meditate on the NAP DREAM from this morning about vaccuming up the little black bits and how that was going to change the layout of the page I had just done.

 

In only moments, I was shown what was going to change:  It was   AZORES.

 

The Azores are islands where earthquakes take place, so that is what is going to change, because that is what my spirit guide Angel Rovere does in his spare time, he moves lava from underneath dangerous volcanoes and moves it to places that can better handle more lava than the dangerous ones.

 

azores quake -2013

This was a 5.9.  A 5.9 is one point too low to make the 6.0 criteria for inclusion on the large quake lists, but since quake lists are adjusted by a person after the fact, there is no exact point that we can really quote as the exact one apparently.

 

 

 

 

I'VE BEEN TRACKING EARTHQUAKES FOR A LONG TIME, BUT THEY ARE GETTING LARGER AND MORE FREQUENT, AND ITS BEEN A CHALLENGE OF MINE TO TRACK THEM BECAUSE I LIVE IN EARTHQUAKE LAND OF CALIFORNIA - FORTUNATELY ONLY EXPERIENCED ONE PERSONALLY AND IT WAS NO BIG DEAL EVEN THOUGH IT WAS A 5.0 AND IT FELT LIKE A TREE FELL ON TOP OF OUR ROOF.  IT DID CRACK WALLS AND UNSETTLE THE BUILDING A BIT BUT WE ARE STILL LIVING IN IT LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED. 

HERE IS THE NEW PREDICTION:

Activity in the North Pacific has definitely increased this week with the May 15 window, which I posted last month.  The Pacific is going to be a focus for at least two more months.  The Indian Ocean is even more concerning, with a spree of moderate quakes at the Antarctic.  I predicted activity on the Antarctic plate, and that’s troublesome.  I based the prediction on crop circles pointing to the Indo-Australian plate.  This indicates quake and volcanic activity has increased for low to moderate in the areas pointed out by crop circles and is increasing while areas directly indicated by the TimeStar are also active. 

Discovery of portions of a sunken continent east of Brazil’s coast were announced last week, by the way.  I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had time to post emails about this. 

Best regards,

May 15 - 27 - Focus Area: Arctic, North Pacific, East Russia, Kuril Islands, Japan, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Yellowstone Park, California, USA to 112.8333° West longitude

The North Pacific is the primary focus of the Human glyph, but it is the finale of a 52-day cycle in the Pacific Ocean, from the Antarctic to the Arctic. All the areas affected in the Pacific Ocean are especially active at the end of 52 days. The entire West Coast of the Americas are active during a Human window, from the coast extending to 112.8333° in the North Pacific and 66° West longitude in the South Pacific. A number of quakes in excess of 7 magnitude shook Alaska and Canada after October 28, 2012, along with unexplained "booms" before one 7+ magnitude quake. Volcanic quakes have been ongoing in the Mammoth Mountain and Long Valley Caldera area of California as well as Nevada.

Magnetic north is in the Arctic region north of Alaska in 2013, as it continues to move towards the New Siberia Islands at a rapid pace. The attraction between the New Siberia Islands and magnetic north in high latitudes of Alaska makes these areas -- Russia and Alaska -- very active.

Quakes reported:

We don't even pay any attention quakes of 4.0 in California.  We have way too many quakes in California for that kind of information.

Quakes in California range from 450 to 650 a week.  There are currently 891 quakes on this map:

I'VE HAD LOTS OF DREAMS ABOUT EARTHQUAKES AND WE KNOW THAT THE EARTH HAS SHIFTED SEVERAL TIMES ON ITS AXIS BECAUSE THE QUAKES ARE GETTING LARGER.

EARTH CHANGES


EARTHQUAKE PREDICTION

syzygy - earthquake predictions

NASA SATELLITE EARTHQUAKE PREDICTIONS

2010 - YELLOWSTONE ALERT
 

PREDICTIONS FROM URBAN SURVIVAL

2010

 

 

The problem is that as we look at the data, there are at least six great quakes due during calendar 2010 and possibly many more.  After six, we stopped looking - not a pretty sight.  We assume you know a 'great' quake is one with magnitude 8.0 or larger, but in a social sense, Haiti is a 'great' quake based on extreme loss of life.

 

From the period (approximately) July 7th onward, the data features six clusters of data that will be larger than the global horror that followed the 2004 tsunami.  And - sad to report - the data suggests that 220-million will be moving around just on the [American continent] which means additional quakes can be expected this year of larger magnitude including some hints that one will be on the US West coast.

 

Among the problems with predictive linguistics technology is that it's not precise. How people use language is drifty on a good day. Although the US quake(s) seems to be California'ish, it could be as far north as Vancouver Island.  Such is the imprecision of the data.  No, can't narrow it down to the Long Valley caldera, Yellowstone, or something as simple as that.

 

What is clear is that our 'context shift' is 'terra entity', we can't offer any further insight except to say that the data also suggests that by the end of this year, we may see more than a billion people involved in diaspora else; particularly India/Pakistan/China and there are some indications that dislocated people will stream north toward Siberia/Mongolia as a result.

 

You might ask "Why wasn't this in the Shape of Things to Come report?  Fair question:  not trying to hide anything...remember, though, we've been saying for the past 9-months (roughly, could be longer) that looking into the data from late 2009 onward for quake activity was pretty much pointless.  Gets to be too much.  Our accuracy is occasionally very good with isolated near-great quakes like our call on the May 2008 China event, but even if we had been translated into mandarin prior to the May 'wedding quake', would it have modified anyone's behavior or saved lives?  Likely not.

 

Add to that the problems we had sorting out the  'print through" on the Lacey Peterson trial/Redwood City (Sept. 2004) quake which preceded the Dec. 2004 tsunami? The  Peterson trial was interrupted by the Redwood City quake and some linguistics (courthouse emptied) were fulfilled, ;leavings us to scratch our heads and pondering "Damn...where's the land driven back to previous age, 200-thousand dead and all that language?"  Showed up - all right - about 120 days later.

All of which is not supposed to make you feel better - or worse- about what's ahead in the second half of this year - our timing sucks when there gets to be overlap, print-through, and multiple images of the same thing.  Go look at how clear the Wedding Quake hit was before and after the event.  (Scroll down to the May 12, 2008 entry "Oh, THAT Quake...)

5-12-08 - 7.9 QUAKE - CHENGDU, CHINA - 8700+ DIE

So whether we get a half dozen seven-oh's this year with huge loss of life or a series of 8's and larger is really outside the scope of this project.  Not much anyone can do about it, except have food, water, seeds and a mindset that will allow you to start over and prosper under the most adverse adverse conditions imaginable which by year-end maybe upwards 1.4-billion people will experience..

 

Best we hope for is to be wrong and it will be media buzz only - always hard to distinguish from physical/objective reality.  Our fishing grounds are internet fora, which oh, by the way, may go down in late summer as a global phenomena.  So yeah, in addition to working on his survival pod-boat, Cliff's looking at a satellite-based internet system.

 

Mine's been in for a couple of years seeing this period coming.  Oh, might want to mark down your home/residence's lat/lon by GPS and keep it handy for a couple of years.  If it starts changing outside the 2DRMS error of SA(ASM if you're in green), it'll be time to gear up.

 

Why, I bet hardly any of your friends noticed the proximity of Haiti's quake to the news stories about how the "Earth's magnetic north pole marching toward Siberia at 37 miles per year" did they

 

 

09:35 -- Occasional Linguistic Fill Notes

 

"Haitian Diaspora"

With former president Clinton mentioning the 'Haitian diaspora" on an MSNBC interview last night, struck me as we should look at the use of 'diaspora' as it pops up related to Haiti.

 

Sure enough, got 93 'hits' on the phrase on Google's news search engine right now and no doubt that will continue to build.

 

We had discussed 200,000 - but we also had references to 220-million.  Still, decimal points are a real soft spot of the web bot processing.  Cliff points out there's a big linguistic difference between millions and thousands, but bear with me for a sec.  What IF the number turns out to be 200 or 220-thosuand and the directional language we were seeing was not 220-million north to Canada, but instead 220,000 north to the USA?

 

If I were a betting man I'd lay down a few cents betting that within a few days to weeks, we will hear about calls for the US to accept (200,000 to 220,000) Haitian refugees in the US on an emergency/humanitarian basis.

 

Our time machine is rickety and all, but may be offering hints on this one...and we're just too dense to get it all sorted right.  Quick!  Build more SQL predicates!

 

Sure builds the fill for the descriptors fit 'the land where people eat dirt' doesn't it? More on that as Cliff runs linguistic fill stats.  Bet me on the 'humanitarian' wave of refugees?  Timing fits with all the talk about violence in the streets and imagery of national collapse, too

7.8 Mag. Quake Hits Sumatra -

Tsunami Warning Canceled

A tsunami alert has been lifted after an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8
 hit the Indonesian
island of Sumatra. The quake's epicenter was 204km
(127 miles) northwest of Sibolga on Sumatra's coast, at a depth of nearly 48km,
the US Geological Survey said.
 
Three aftershocks were reported in the northern
province of Aceh, but there were no reports of casualties. Indonesia sits on the
Pacific Ring of Fire, one of the world's most active areas for earthquakes and volcanoes.

Large 7.7 Quake Hits Indian Islands - Tsunami Warning Issued

A powerful earthquake of 7.7 magnitude struck near India's Nicobar Islands and northwest of the tip of
 Indonesia's Sumatra island on Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

A regional tsunami watch was in effect for all areas of the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said on its website.
The epicenter of the quake was 107 miles (171 km) west of Misha on the Nicobar Islands at a depth of 20.5 miles (33 km), USGS said.

    COMPARING THE EARTHQUAKES TO THE ECONOMY

    Wednesday  March 3, 2010          02:25 CST 

     

    Record Earthquake Energy Year - In Just Two Months!

     

    A couple of readers asked a very interesting question after the last report that yes, there may be something bigger than the economy to worry about: A dramatic increase in earthquake activity lately. Several readers asked if Tony Ring could run out the numbers and instead of just magnitudes, give us some idea of the total energy involved:

    "Hi

    The last time I looked at calculating mean energy it took me a lot of extra effort and the resulting data didn't show much, so I abandoned it.

    This time I took the time to create a method that can be run in minutes as part of my regular procedure. I used the formulae available here.

    Hold on to your hat when you look at the resulting chart. Last month we hit the highest average energy on record at close to 450,000 tons of TNT. That's more than double the previous highest ever. Sheesh!

    Interesting that your other reader was inspired to ask for this data just now. Universe using us all?

     

    OK, so much for the monthly...what about the annual trend here?  I combined the monthlies for each year and came up with this composite look:

     

     

    My, that's reassuring, isn't it?

     

    Whose Default Is This?

    Ah, from fault lines to default lines, where the top story of the day may turn out to be the boss of JP Morgan rightly says that California is a bigger risk to the global economy than Greece.

     

    Let me see here...the GDP of Greece is $357 billion while the GDP of California is what?  In 2008 it was $1.85 trillion so even with a little backsliding yep, the JP Morgan guy's not blowing smoke...

     

    While the whole world shakes and jitters about Greece - and this morning's $6.5 billion 'austerity plan' as the latest Grecian formula - it's only about half the budget for CalTrans, as long as we're comparing things here.

     

    Sorry Charlie Watch

    Rangel's wrangle wangle tangle mangle jangle...  Without the Means, won't me much ways, huh?

     

    Check Out Howard

    My friend and former Wall St. whiz Howards Hill has an interesting take on Milton Friedman's role in the Chile 'economic miracle' - good thinking material.

     

    Been really fun watching the buck-passing trying to delay the inevitable.  Kinda like watching people at the beach yelling at an incoming tide.  Whatever.

     

     

    1-5-09 - Over 500 quakes have been measured during the past week

    IF THE PICTURE DOES NOT SHOW - CLICK HERE
    http://www.greatdreams.com/yellowstone-1-5-09.gif

     

      Posted by Jim Berkland on January 13, 1999

    Those of you familiar with my Seismic Window Theory will not be  surprised by the swarm of quakes near Mt. Hood (max. 3.2M) because there  is a Volcanic Window between the standard Seismic Windows. They typical  Seismic Window opens the day before the New or Full Moon (whichever is  closest to perigee) and runs for eight days (typically to 6 days after syzygy, or S+6). In contrast the volcanic window is typically from day S+7 through day S+14.

    Five of six major eruptions at Mt. St. Helens in 1980 occurred during a Volcanic Window, the one exception was the big blast of March 18, 1980, moments after the 5.2M quake under the peak.

    Also the Salton Sea Trough quakes also have their predominant timing during the Volcanic Windows. This morning (day 13) SW of Brawley there was a sequence of quakes with the largest measuring 4.5M.

    Some 20 years ago an anxious woman called me to tell me that she was petrified about quakes and she wanted to know what could she do to avoid them. I told her that she could maintain two residences and shuttle between the S.F. Bay Area (during Volcanic Windows) and the Salton Sea area (during Seismic Windows). I was not being totally facetious because history bears this out.

    A week before the World Series 7.1M quake, Joan Gillespie of Campbell, CA had heard of my prediction and asked if she should take down her valuable collection of china and crystal. I told her "If you have ever seriously considered doing that, now is the time." When her china cabinet toppled over, her collection was safely wrapped and stored in boxes. She told a USA TODAY reporter, "I don't care if Jim Berkland ujses chicken entrails to predict quakes; he has been right too often to ignore, and I saved more than $6,000 worth of china and crystal, thanks to him."

    Quakes can be predicted and ARE being predicted, and predictions can be useful.

    Fear mainly arises from ignorance, and foreknowledge conquers ignorance.

    1964: Powerful earthquake strikes Alaska

    A devastating earthquake initially measuring 8.6 on the Richter scale struck Alaska today, flattening buildings and triggering a massive tidal wave.

    "Half a dozen small Alaska coastal towns were nearly wiped out," reported The Daily Review on March 28, 1964. "The death and destruction extended as far south as Crescent City, Calif., more than 2,000 miles from the center of the quake – the heaviest ever to strike populated areas in the United States."

    NOTE: The earthquake's magnitude was later revised to 9.2, making it the largest earthquake ever recorded in the U.S. and the fourth largest ever recorded. More than 100 deaths were attributed to the earthquake and ensuing tidal waves.

    CALIFORNIA WIRED FOR EARTHQUAKES

    Discovery News Tuesday, July 10, 2001

    Scientists on Friday unveiled a $20 million system expected to revolutionize the study of earthquakes by measuring the earth's movements down to the millimeter.

    The Southern California Integrated Global Positioning System Network (SCIGN), a joint project by universities and federal agencies including the U.S. Geological Survey and NASA, uses satellites originally designed for military navigation to measure the constant movements of the jigsaw puzzle-like plates that make up the Earth's crust.

    The resulting measurements, which are accurate down to a millimeter, will enable better prediction of the timing of quakes, provide clues as to how they might be related and identify faults not currently linked to seismic activity, scientists said.

    The system will also contribute to earthquake hazard assessments in Southern California, the world's most seismically active area, scientists said at a press conference in suburban Los Angeles.

    "California is now wired like no place else in the U.S.," said John Filson of the USGS. "Never before has a network like SCIGN been built. It is unique in the world, and other countries are learning from SCIGN as they attempt to understand and cope with their earthquake risks."

    The system, a network of 250 satellite receivers placed alongside freeways, dams, and on private property, will complement existing technology already in place to measure seismic shaking. Such measurement, Filson said, can be compared to taking the "pulse of the earth," by monitoring the location and magnitude of earthquakes.

    The new program, he said, will "read the Earth's blood pressure" by measuring the tiny, inevitable, and steady buildup of strain produced by movements of the North American and Pacific plates upon which Los Angeles is built.

    "What we're measuring is all that goes into the build-up of an earthquake," said Mark Benthien, a spokesman for the Southern California Earthquake Center, the parent organization of SCIGN.

    USGS's Filson added: "Ultimately we are confident (SCIGN) will help lower the risk to society in Southern California of the earthquake threat."

    The project began 10 years ago and significantly expanded after the 6.7 magnitude 1994 Northridge quake that rocked Southern California, killing 57 people and causing more than $20 billion in damage.

    The entire project was finished on July 2, officials said. The technology is expected to provide continuous information for at least 50 years.

    Scientists said they eventually hope to expand the monitoring to cover North America from Alaska to the southern tip of Mexico.

    The program is also being used by officials from the California Department of Transportation to monitor the freeways, by the California Spacial Reference Center to survey property boundaries and infrastructure locations, and by water officials in Los Angeles to keep track of ground movements around thousands of miles of pipeline, officials said.
