Stan Deyo Issues Warning !
March 7, 2005/ This evening on
Steve Quayle's Q-Files Radio Program, Scientist Stan Deyo issued a
Warning about a possible building Cascade Subduction Zone 9.0+
Earthquake that could produce not only a 9.0 Quake but also resulting
multiple tsunamis' that could last 8 to 10 hours, washing back and
forth, causing much destruction. Deyo reported that the Juan de Fuca
Plate is starting to buckle and puts British Columbia at great risk;
also threatening Washington, Oregon, California and basically the
entire West Coast of US.
Deyo reported that he has never seen these type signals ever off the
West Coast of US, but they're there now! Deyo believes that the other
Scientists that should be warning are being muzzled by their
governments to avoid panic. Steve Quayle stated he has reports that
Russian Scientists are warning of a 10.0+ off the US West Coast. Deyo
did report that this involves not only Seismic Quake activity but also
volcanic at Mt. St. Helen's and under the ocean off Vancouver Island.
This is a very serious Warning to the United States & Canadian
West Coast area.
Included in the interview was reports that Scientists are rushing to
the northwestern and Canadian area to investigate the current spike of
events and danger signals. Deyo reported that local northwest
advising a Go-Bag with 72 hours provision and advise to flee the area
if anything happens.

further information as I obtain the information.
|Earthquake Swarm Off Oregon
A swarm that has now
reached over 3,500 small earthquakes began last weekend off the Oregon
coast, but officials insist that they do not pose any tsunami threat,
even though part of the affected ocean floor is similar to the area in
the Indian Ocean area that produced the magnitude 9 quake that caused
last December's huge tsunami in southeast Asia. The small quakes off the
Oregon coast range from a magnitude of 2 to 4.
NOAA scientists think the quakes are caused by an underwater
volcano which is about to erupt. A NOAA team plans to dive down to
investigate and snap photos of the lava welling up from the seafloor,
where the Juan de Fuca plate is located. This has been called a
"tectonic time bomb," because it is capable of producing
earthquakes and tsunamis that could equal the disaster in Indonesia,
although scientists don't expect that to happen as a result of these

Earthquake swarm off
coast prompts research
A swarm of thousands of small
earthquakes that began on Saturday, Feb. 27 has prompted
the quick design and chartering of a research project that
sending the R/V "Thompson" to the far western
edge of the Juan de Fuca plate, about 300 miles off the
Some 20 scientists from the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, Oregon State University, left
from Seattle on Saturday, and will stay at the area of the
quakes until this coming Friday.
The quakes in the swarm were generally between 2.0 and
4.0 in intensity, and the swarm ended this past Saturday.
None were felt on land, and none threatened to produce a
tsunami, according to Robert Dziak, an oceanographer with
Oregon State University and NOAA stationed at OSU's
Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport.
The quakes were located at
the far side of the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate, the piece
of sub-ocean crust that is slowly diving under the larger
North American plate. A site that is feared someday will
produce a major earthquake and tsunami is at the other,
closer end of the Juan de Fuca plate, at the diving edge
known as the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The subduction zone
is roughly 50 to 100 miles out from the Northwest coast;
the ridge that defines the plate's far edge is as much as
300 miles out.
The recent quake swarm went unfelt in Oregon and
Washington, even though it included a few larger quakes,
from 4.4 to 4.8 in magnitude - about the same magnitude as
two quakes this past summer felt across much of coastal
Oregon. Because of the greater distance of these more
recent earthquakes they past unnoticed except by the
scientists' detection equipment.
"The earthquakes in this swarm are associated with
seafloor spreading," said Dziak. "We suspect
that magma pushed up into the crust and the lava may have
broken the surface." Or, he added, it may not have
reached the surface.
Either way, it may have generated a hydrothermal plume
- an in-the-water geyser that erupts out of the
quake-ruptured seafloor rock into the ocean. If one was
created, it would have been rich in the rare
microorganisms, that survive on the chemistry and/or heat
of sub-seafloor regions heated by the magma.
Dziak is the lead researcher for a team operating the
Sound Surveillance System, or SOSUS, out of the Hatfield
Marine Science Center. This system of hydrophones located
on the ocean floor was originally used during the Cold War
to monitor submarines in the north Pacific, but the U.S.
Navy has allowed NOAA to make use of them and their data.
During the first 36 hours, SOSUS detected nearly 1,500
small quakes. On Wednesday, the swarm continued with 10 to
30 events per hour. Earthquake activity continued on
Thursday with between four and 45 events per hour.
"We sent the ship to the area with equipment to
take up sea water from different depths and test for
conductivity, temperature, density. It's basically a wire
with bottles around it, which we fill at different
depths," Dziak said.
Even though any hydrothermal plume will have been finished
a few days before the vessel gets to their location, Dziak
said, "If a plume was released, it should be
detectable; it should not have dissipated that fast."
The lava, he said, is probably "your typical
mid-ocean ridge basalts. I'm interested in seeing what
happens when something like this happens on the
seafloor," Dziak continued.
"Are lavas released, or did they stay beneath the
seafloor surface? Will the quakes cause cracks that
release a plume? Are there faults propagated along the
seafloor?" While the researchers will not see any
actual propagating of cracks, they will be able to tell,
by remote cameras, if there are recently created fissures
All that may give new information about "the
character of the quakes," and, perhaps, "how
they relate to the eruption" of a plume.
In addition, there could be a large amount of rare
microorganisms "entrained in the plume," Dziak
said. They come from a unique place, the sub-seafloor
The microorganisms live inside the water in cracks and
pores of the rock, and stay largely dormant for long time
periods. "When the rocks crack and the fluid is
released, they become active," he said, invigorated
by the chemicals in the magma-driven water, the heat, or
Some geologists believe rising pressures on one edge of a
tectonic plate can produce a build-up of stress that may
eventually prompt a quake at the other end. But Dziak says
he disagrees with that.
Even though the Juan de Fuca plate may appear on maps
as a single triangular-shaped mass (as large as Oregon and
Washington), pressure from rising magma at one side is
unlikely, Dziak said, to prompt quakes at the other side.
"It's not a one-to-one thing. It doesn't seem to
correlate to sudden movements at the other end. The
pressure may be taken up by faults in the middle of the
plate. Also, some places have slow quakes, ground
deformation events that do not snap. Vancouver Island has
moved west and then come back again, moved west and then
come back again," he said.
Shortly after the swarm ended, Dziak reported, there were
two magnitude five quakes south of the swarm, on the edge
of another, smaller plate, the Gorda Plate, west of Coos
When asked if these two were related to the swarm, Dziak
replied "no." But it is possible there are other
undersea geological links that we as yet dimly perceive.
Earthquakes send out pressure waves that travel through
the Earth. "If there are big waves from a quake and
they strike a place with a lot of fluid or hydrothermal
activity, that could produce quakes in those environments.
The 1992 Landers earthquake, on the San Andreas fault in
Southern California, produced an increase in earthquakes
at all the geothermal sites in the western U.S., at
Yellowstone, at Mono Lake in California, at the geysers in
another location in central California. That fluid makes
the faults slip easier," he said, "and we have
seen that sort of fluid in the seafloor."
While most of the scientists on the expedition are from
the Northwest - with the Pacific Marine Environmental
Laboratories in Newport and Seattle - Jim Cowan, the chief
scientist, is from the University of Hawaii. His
participation is sponsored by National Science Foundation.
Also underwriting the exploration is the NOAA Ocean
Exploration Plan and the National Science Foundation.
"It went really quickly," Dziak said of the
effort that organized the expedition. "We've done
this a few times in the past, so the process was
streamlined. And the University of Washington ship, the
"Thompson," was at dock. We called the National
Science Foundation and the Ocean Exploration program and
they said yes in a couple of days. It is one of the most
rapid response efforts we've put together."
|March 09, 2005
The most intense swarms of earthquakes detected in the last
10 to 12 years on the far edge of the Juan de Fuca plate could
indicate the eruption of magma from the seafloor or an
underwater volcano. Between 50 and 70 earthquakes an hour,
most of them small, were occurring at the end of February at a
spot some 200 miles off the Canadian coast.
University of Hawaii's Jim Cowen, chief
scientist, and National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration's Ed
Baker, co-chief scientist, are at sea now leading an expedition at the
Endeavour Segment, the site of the quakes. The Endeavour Segment is
located in deep water and the quakes are not of a magnitude that would
cause noticeable effects on land in Canada or the United States.
Reports from the expedition are at http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/vents/acoustics/seismicity/nepac/endeav0205.html.
As of March 8, the site said the number of quakes had calmed in recent
The scientists are on board the Thomas G. Thompson, the 274-foot
research vessel operated by the University of Washington, and will
return to Seattle March 11. The project is a rapid-response cruise
funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Atmospheric
and Oceanic Administration, with cooperation from the Canadian
There have been six rapid-response cruises to investigate seismic
activity on the Juan de Fuca plate since 1991, the most recent having
been in 2001 led by Marv Lilley, University of Washington oceanographer.
Nowhere have scientists been in position to document lava flows while
they are erupting, other than in Hawaii where Kilauea lavas flow into
the sea, Lilley says. They've been tantalizingly close a few times out
on the Juan de Fuca Ridge, once detecting fresh lava that was still hot
enough to have diffuse water flowing out of it and another time arriving
to find small glass shards still suspended in the water.
Even if there is no chance to witness lava flows, scientists are eager
to arrive at the site as quickly as possible to measure changes that
rapidly unfold following an eruption. Fluids discharged into the ocean
during such events can form a billowing plume half a mile thick and
stretching 6 miles in diameter, substantially changing water temperature
and chemistry. Microorganisms flourish, increasing in such abundance
that scientists say water near eruption sites can appear blizzard-like
as it becomes laden with individual organisms and those that have formed
into trailing mats and strings in the water.
"What's expelled gives scientists a view into what's deep in the
seafloor, in places scientists can't reach," chief scientist Cowen
The swarms of quakes started Feb. 27 and lasted long enough that
co-chief scientist Ed Baker told the Seattle Times before the expedition
left port that, "We're pretty sure lava is moving."
The seafloor quakes are monitored by SOSUS, the SOund SUrveillance
System, that can "hear" sound waves generated by seismic
events, submarines or whales
The swarms are centered about 200 miles west of Vancouver Island,
British Columbia, at 48 degrees N and 129 degrees W. The seafloor is
about a mile and a half below the surface there. As of March 4, fewer
than 10 quakes an hour were being detected.
The site is on the Endeavour Segment, on the northern part of the Juan
de Fuca Ridge. The ridge is where the Juan de Fuca plate is pulling away
from a neighboring plate. Molten lava typically oozes up into the open
spaces creating new seafloor at a pace of usually only inches a year.
There can be more rapid spreading, however, during volcanic eruptions
and earthquakes. Fields of hydrothermal vents form where seawater
circulates beneath the seafloor gaining heat and chemicals until the
fluids vent back into the ocean, sometimes like geysers. As the fluids
mix with cold seawater the chemicals separate and solidify, sometimes
piling up into impressive mounds, spires and chimneys.
Researchers will sample sea water, take images
using a camera sled, collect rock fragments and deploy three to four
floats made especially to be able to float along with the plume of vent
fluids for several months.
There is the possibility scientists will find something other than an
eruption underway. A swarm of earthquakes off the coast in 2001 caused
an area of the seafloor to draw in surrounding seawater for more than a
year. It was a surprising twist for scientists who visited the site
expecting to find hot water, and possibly magma, being expelled, says
Lilley, leader of that expedition and co-author of a paper last July in
Nature about the event. The void created by the earthquakes was under
negative pressure, drawing water down into hundreds of feet of
sediments, something scientists had never observed before.
Scientists, graduate students and undergraduates on the current
expedition are from the University of Hawaii, University of Washington,
University of Miami, Oregon State University, NOAA's Pacific Marine
Environmental Laboratory, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and
Scripps Institution of Oceanography, as well as students from Canada,
Hong Kong and Switzerland.

Gorda Ridge - Quakes of 2003
|1-19-03 - DREAM - I was working in a large office.
When someone called me on the phone about Real Estate and told me she
wanted to buy a piece of land, and asked me what my position was, I told
them I was a 'clerk' because I didn't need them to know I knew the
Some of the girls remembered that there used to be a birthday club
in the office and wanted to start it up again, so I looked up the old
The records were printed out and for some reason one of the girls
cut the piece of paper into 4 long strips of data, so the strips would
have to be realized in order to use them. She didn't say why she did
this or why it was necessary, but I grabbed them back from her so I
could realign them.
While I was looking for these records on the computer, I saw the
letters KUFO. There was no indications of why those letters were there,
but every time I looked on a computer page, those letters came up. I
couldn't figure out why that was.
Later on, I was in my apartment building, walking in the hallway.
There was a lot of baby stuff laying around and a small baby buggy. I
was going to g out to dinner with some of the people in the building,
but I decided I had better take all the baby stuff into the basement and
put it into storage because it wasn't going to be used anymore.
I was worried that my friends wouldn't wait for me, but I also
thought that this chore had to be done first even if they did or didn't
wait for me.
So I went into the basement with the baby buggy and baby things
and put them away.
While I was in the basement, I was thinking about the 'change' and
everything that was going to happen and all of a sudden some men came in
who said they were from KUFO. They had very worried looks on their
faces. The KNEW something bad was coming that they were going to have to
