The initial quake seems to have been upgraded to an 8.4 magnitude event.

Magnitude 8.4 - SOUTHERN SUMATRA, INDONESIA

Needless to say, that was a major event.

Hi All,

I am so very happy that no tsunami of significance has hit any where. According to the USGS site, there have been quite a few aftershocks, which I understand is normal. Here is the latest update from Yahoo News. In that article it is reported that the tremors could be felt in four different countries, as far as 1,200 miles away.

While I am relieved that the current death toll is less than a dozen
Nine dead and hundreds injured in Indonesia quake I'll be even more relieved that if by daylight (their time) the death toll remains the same. Hopefully the hundreds injured suffered only minor injuries.

The title of the thread threw me. The Difference between an 8.4 and 7.9 is very great. An 8.4 quake is a monster of a quake. Not that a 7.9 is nothing to sneeze at it's just the way the richter scale works, it's not an linear increase each .1, it's logarithmic increase. Big difference.

Check out the shadow zone.


Theoretical P-Wave Travel Times


neic.usgs.gov...


shadow zone

The shadow zone is the area of the earth from angular distances of 104 to 140 degrees that, for a given earthquake, does not receive any direct P waves.

The earth's core is charging back up. The sun works like a microwave oven, heating the center of the earth, not just the surface. Experiment: Put a hard boiled egg in a microwave on high for two minutes. What happens?

The earth's core then radiates the heat back up through the ocean floor. Lord! If all that trapped methane melts...

Anywhoo, before 2012 the core will be in an overload situation. Will there be a breech?

I'm inclined to believe this is simply a natural occurrence. Do you know how many quakes happen daily in Indonesia alone? Lots. Do you know why?



Indonesia is just a bunch of islands created on The Pacific Ring of Fire.

It's just like Japan, only far less advanced.

I am going with C and think we will see more 8-9 magnitute quakes soon.

I definitely think its Planet X. Heres a link to a documentary about Planet X for those of you that do not know what is it. Planet X Documentary

I stand corrected. On MSNBC earlier they said it was an 8.0 then downgraded it to a 7.9. Kinda weird, you'd think that it would be eaiser to measure.

I join you all in prayer for those affected..^i^
Bal I will stick to the first choice it does have that ring or ambience of truth

I scouted around for the planet x ite and I found this link that should put my mind at ease..after all we have all been on pins and needles with every prediction, numbering in the dozens by now and exceeded only by the number of book sales that preceed them
www.badastronomy.com...
As we do have sea quakes..I am curious about the methane hydrates ice down there, and whether that will affect sea lines, atmosphere etc. as the temps go up, or does it insulate itself? Ice on a platform of ice in the sun actually lasts quite long as opposed to an ice tray, and with those pressures down there might be ok. Perhaps, I even answered my own question. Amazing.

Planet X

Wasn't that in 2003????
Source of Article Quote Below

.....In May 2003, it will pass close enough to the Earth to affect it in some way, causing it to flip over (what many call a "pole shift") .....
.....As much as I know anything in science, I know that there is no Planet X as described by this latest crop of Chicken Littles
More Info Same Source

Human Device?
Possible but not probable. Anyone know of some activity in that area that could be to blame other than the obvious fact it is on the Ring of Fire?

No Earthquakes for that area is ABNORMAL. Earthquakes on a regular basis in that area is NORMAL.
Info on Ring of Fire.

What will happen next????

Lunar eclipse two weeks ago, solar eclipse yesterday.

So there is the possibility of tidal influences.
Thats a duel syzygy.

Stretch one week, relax the next, stretch again the next.
That can surely have an effect on fault zones..

Another one just happened 20mins ago just south of sumatra. Magnitude of 7.9. A Tsunami warning is out for Cocos Islands and Christmas Islands right now. How do I know? I work for the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and we are responsible for putting out the warnings!!!!!!!1

WTF!! was this an aftershock or a different quake all together....
there is ANOTHER tsunami warning in effect now, seriously is this normal? two quakes of a comparable size in the same region within 12 hours of eachother? strikes me as odd at the least. once again, I hope all in the area are safe and there is no large tsunami. wow, this sucks.

and a volcano is errupting just north of the first quake, as if those poor people didn't have enough to worry about!
