Thailand has picked up some "abnormal signals" in form of a series of underwater quakes. They are worried about a major eruption of underwater volcanoes which can trigger tsunamis. Thailand warns of unusual underwater tremors

11 March 2006

Thailand warned Saturday of a series of unusual underwater earthquakes in the Andaman Sea, urging caution along its southern coast where the tsunami hit in 2004. The National Disaster Warning Center said that between March 9-11 it had detected 31 quakes ranging in magnitude from 4.0 to 5.3 near the Andaman Islands, some 500 kilometres (300 miles) east of the southern Thai province of Ranong.

The epicentres have been in an area where underwater volcanoes sometimes erupt along a fault line, it said in a statement. "It could cause a major eruption of underwater volcanoes, and that could trigger a tsunami that would damage Thailand," the statement said. The centre's director Plodprasop Suraswadi told Thai television that such a large number of tremors in three days was cause for concern, but said scientists have no way of predicting the chances of another tsunami. "We must warn people to be cautious, but they should not overreact or panic. It's a abnormal signal that we have detected," he said.

Earthquakes and other geophysical activity tends to set up resonances. Seems to me this might be related to the asteroid that passed by earth last Monday (3/6/06).

NORDLYS - Northern Lights - Realtime Aurora Activity

Interesting, I´ve noticed myself a rise in earthquake activity whenever there is massive solar activity, magnetic storms. Causing some beautiful Aurora Borealis but also more quakes (worldwide). I have no data to back it up. Just an observation.

According to the recent data (found on the right side of the page linked) ...

...The recent conditions has been from a scale from 1 to 10
(data from latest hours, new data to the left, reload for new data): 6, 6, 8, 8, 6, 6, 6, 8, 8, 8

Maybe some really evil energy which might have set something off

Uh huh. Solar storms affect the earth's magnetosphere, and electromagnetic fluctuations/pulses can trigger geophysical activity. ...But the world is a much bigger place than just our solar system - and many paths do lead to the same place. So most things are multifactorial. Including earthquakes and volcanoes...

The asteroid in question would have had a minimal effect or "echo" - but such things can "resonate" or create a domino effect.
