A scientist in Russia had said that he can predict earthquakes by the lunar phase and other planets lining up.

Jim Berkland uses this as well. And he counts the missing/lost dog and cat ads in the papers. as they go up dramatically before a quake, according to him.

I believe his website is

The earthquake on April 18, 2008, about 120 miles east of St. Louis, registered 5.2 on the Richter scale and hit at 4:40 a.m. with a strong aftershock occurring at approximately 10:15 a.m. that morning, followed by lesser ones in subsequent days. The initial earthquake was felt in parts of 16 states.

Interesting article. In the following quote I think they take too lightly the ability of our animals and pets to sense such events.

Wysession says that there are some precursory phenomena that have been observed right before some earthquakes. Radon or helium gas may leak out of the ground as the ground cracks. Sometimes water well pressure changes, or there’s a change in the magnetic field. Electrical resistivity changes have been noted, too.

“These are changes we can measure with instruments, but we can’t sense them as humans,” he said. “Many people think that animals sense atmospheric changes. You always get stories about Rover going bananas right before an earthquake. But until Rover learns to tell us what he’s barking about, we won’t be able to employ animals in any predictive way. “

May 5th is the new moon when lunar tidal sine waves peak.

Based on the way the earth is rock and rolling I'd say we are in for
a major quake here on the west coast.

Or a major caldera or volcano is getting ready to let loose.

Seems like the magma wants to meet the magpa.

I am going to take a wild guess here tonight, I am basing it on something I have been noticing with these earthquakes, I will tell you later what that is, right now I would like to make my prediction:

Somewhere between 35-45 latitude, 125-135 west Longitude, a mag 4.0-5.8 sometime today, 5-2-2008 before midnight.

Information is slowly being released about the expedition that went out to sea to investigate the swarm of earthquakes off the coast of Oregon.

We just had a pretty good temblor while I'm reading this thread... I'll edit in the map when it comes up.

Just when I thought it was calming down.

These earthquakes are not like the rolling type I've experienced-- these are sharp upward jolts. And I can still feel the constant vibration under my feet.

I also noticed a vertical wisp of a cloud out over the epicenter area and I took a photo.

Depth 37.8 km (23.5 miles)

Location 37.278°N, 141.547°E

Friday, May 02, 2008 at 05:51:43 UTC
Depth 158.1 km (98.2 miles)

Location 42.390°S, 71.252°W

The above prediction by space cadet not too far off really, as I see it

East opposed to West with the 1st noted -- and 1/2 way there on the West location on the 2nd noted -- but N or S wasn't specified above -- c'mon s/c... get with the program!

These have a kind of "opposite" thing going on that someone referred to in an earlier post...

And note map total approaching 300 again, after it had dipped to @ 230 in the past week or so...

Also quite a few around Reno- wonder if they are related to ones off coast of Oregon somehow.

I am from reno nevada, and we are experiencing a "swarm" of over 1000 earthquakes since this started following a 6.0 in wells, nevada in mid feb.

we have only had a 4.7 as the largest, but i live right on top of the epicenter, and it did some damage....

scientists do not know why this swarm is not behaving like typical earthquakes.... they are building in frequency and strength, not big, then smaller aftershocks...

the link above shows over 450 and counting earthquakes, in the last 7 days alone..

There has been more than a few!!!! i live less than 1 mile from the epicenters of all 1000 plus we have felt since mid feb.

scientists cannot find a fault responsible..... haarp?

what I find most interesting about the Reno swarm is the depth in the ground. Some of them are coming up with 0, which means it's right on the surface. That doesn't make sense when you realy think about it. How could the surface cause earthquakes??

I hope all of you in Reno are holding on tight, doesn't look like the swarm is done yet though the Oregon one seems to have quieted down finally.

Hello, and I am glad someone from the reno, sierra area is online.... ive felt a couple today, and i live a mile from the epicenter of all these in the mogul/verdi area, and I also noticed some wierd cloud? jet? activity immediatly after one of the larger ones, but have no idea what it means....

We had an open forum with an expert at our local papers website and I guess that a depth of 0.0 means less than 1.5 km below surface...

have you noticed lately in the last couple days they are now going deeper, 3km, 5km...... something is not right, and i cant keep skaing all the time..... i feel everyone, no matter how small, i right the time i think i felt it, and then check this page, and i have felt them all, even though i am over 10 miles from them (im at work)

On the noon Reno local news, they just said that UNR seismologists will hold a press conference today to address the earthquake swarm and rumors of a catastrophic quake coming within the next 24 to 48 hours. I have seen a slight increase in intensity today-- more 2.9, 2.7, since this morning.

The news also reported that many people heard that FEMA was in town preparing for the "big one", but FEMA said it's a rumor. Then they said, well, they are in Carson City (30 miles south of Reno) for a mock earthquake drill.

I too have seen the strange clouds. Those of you in Reno, try to get photos of them, if you can. I also have a question for you about the constant vibration I can feel-- do you feel that as well?

I have felt a constant vibration also, but wrote it off as a side effect of feeling hundreds and hundreds of quakes in the last 2 months....

I know we're having quakes every few minutes, but even when the USGS site isn't showing any, I can feel this vibration. Are you in Somersett?

I live just off Robb Drive, less than a straight mile to sommersett, but i am working by baldini's casino, and i have felt them all morning, i write the time down when i think i felt it, and then go to the web site a little later, and i have felt a 2.9, and a 1.1 here, over 15 miles away.... maybe our bodies adjust to the frequencies, and we are like douser rods...

i cant explain it, all my co-workers think i am crazy, till i show them my list...

Some people are more sensitive to these things, maybe because we just pay closer attention to our surroundings. I also will get a very specific headache, behind the eyes and sometimes also in one or both temples, before a quake over 4.0, basically anywhere in the western U.S.. And I hate to say it, but I have one now. But it's not too bad.

I live off Robb as well. I was downtown this a.m., so I didn't feel the 2.9, etc., we've had already.

Wow this has been quite a day. I noticed that the quake in Alaska the 6.6 was after a pair of 5.1s. Thats just not normal. The Big one is going to happen I fear. I will be praying hard to God tonight that we don't and I think everyone should do the same. Remember the shocking map that Edgar Casey made showing almost all of the west gone and the Mississippi being hundreds of miles wide?

The problem that I have is, I'm on the coast of Florida and I think I would be swimming if that happened. Not cool, I just got a new car and boat. It would be like Water World here with all the boats.
