I wasnt asleep, but was having computer problems last night (damn, always happens when something like this happens and Im not on it!!!!!)
Anyway, yes, an 8.0 is a DAMN powerful quake, and is capable of catastrophic damage. I have not yet heard of any deaths associated with this quake,
and if that continues to be true, that would be a level miracle.
Yes, for whoever asked, the decreasing series of shocks is a series of aftershocks: this is normal for a really huge quake like that.
As for HAARP, I did check it when I got on last night, and when you check the magchain, there was a VERY interesting pulse during the day, about 8-12
hours before the quake... very high end, localized, lasted about 3-4 hours....
I also noticed that the USGS seismos showed damn near ALL seismos TOTALLY BLACK from seismic activity WORLD WIDE.
Red Puma was kicking yesterday too... Japan was NOT the only place getting shaken, just the hardest.
Val has posted a nice statistical trend showing that there IS an overall increase in high end quakes over the past century or so, and I have been
thinking that to be the case lately....
Combined with what we are tracking at Yellowstone... I have a bad feeling...
