I have a strange feeling we will have something out of the New Madrid fault. I know this has been predicted many times before I am just saying I have a feeling......Who also thinks this?

posted on May, 13 2008 @ 12:02 AM
According to the 2008 United States National Seismic Hazard Maps, the New Madrid Fault, Charleston SC and the west coast (esp Cascadia fault) would all be good guesses as to where the next big US quake would be. I havent found one of these maps for the whole world yet. Alaska and Hawaii and all of our territories as well. I gotta mention Puerto Rico as well, boy that place is active.

I didnt see you guys listing this one

Monday's earthquake in southwest China's Sichuan Province has left 85 people dead in neighboring Shaanxi Province, up from the previous figure of 61, local government said on Tuesday. Meanwhile, 313 others were injured, a spokesman with the provincial government said. In the provincial capital of Xi'an, 15 people were killed and 90 others injured, the spokesman said. The 7.8-magnitude earthquake rocked Wenchuan County of Sichuan at 2:28 p.m. Monday and more than 7,651 people were feared dead in the province. The tremor was also strongly felt in many other parts of the country, including Beijing, Shanghai and Tibet. )

Link 7.8 18.59.29 UTC


On Monday, an earthquake measuring 7.5 rocked Sichuan province less than 100 km (60 miles) from the provincial capital of Chengdu, the U.S. Geological Survey said on its website. It was not immediately clear if there were any casualties or damage from the tremor. The tremor, centred 92 km northwest of Chengdu, was felt as far away as Beijing and Shanghai and in the Thai capital Bangkok, where office buildings swayed with the impact.)
7.5 6.52.31 UTC

According to the USGS it's now a 7.9, and there is only one of them:

MAP 7.9 2008/05/12 06:28:00 31.021 103.367 10.0 EASTERN SICHUAN, CHINA

Where the other site gets extra ones from I don't know.

Nevada/West Coast Residents: A good friend of mine who lives out in your neck of the woods just sent this out. Please confirm or deny what info you can...

Hey all; By a strange series of accidents, we have been able to help
confirm that Reno has what appears to the USGS as precursor volcanic
activity at the site of the recent earthquakes. We have been advised
by someone claiming personal knowledge that the USGS has withdrawn
their teams from the west coast of this country due to their
considering it some level of emergency situation. I have had the
Reno info confirmed by a source there that was not informed by the
government, even though they are a TV station. Steam and gas is being
vented at the site of the earthquakes in the Verdi/Mogul area, about 5
miles west of Reno.

the worst of it that I was told (by the person that got it from a
friend at the USGS directly, so I am 3rd hand here) is that they are
on a watch for extreme seismic and or volcanic activity for the entire
west coast at this time. The person that I talked to was scared, and
was advised by his friend at the USGS to leave the west coast.

Hope it is all a storm in a teacup, but when FEMA strikes, they end
communication. Please take this for what it is worth, I just
can't not inform you because of what I have heard, and having had parts of this already confirmed

Interesting, How reliable is this source? I wonder if i can go dig up any finds on the withdrawal of teams.

posted on May, 13 2008 @ 10:38 AM
The source is pretty reliable but he is also is the first to say that some of the info he's getting is 2nd and 3rd hand. He's trying to confirm as well...

Apparently, this went out Friday, May 9 around 2 p.m. PST.

I will see if I can get any more info or updated info...

posted on May, 13 2008 @ 10:48 AM
Little known fact....

But is such activity at Steamboat Springs and the dozens of similar sites elevated? That would be nice to know...

A note from a girlfriend living in Nevada after I shared the post above:

"I have to tell you that one very good source (cannot share) did tell me that a seismologist left the region. Moved. I would not be surprised if there is a lot they are not telling the public. Remember, panic and chaos is deadly, too. Other scientists (two that I can think of right now...still early) believe there is a volcanic link--one gives his vote, the other doesn't ignore the possibility. One visionary with a great track record, one astrolger whom I trust also say "magma related."

I know this is all heresay at this point, but for what it's worth, she noticed a seismologist leaving. First hand information or confirmation would be more helpful.

Still waiting to see if I can get more info...

posted on May, 13 2008 @ 12:03 PM
I can't confirm it at this point but I just got a call there was a Quake in Eureka Ca.

Another to add to the list for the area (maybe).

posted on May, 13 2008 @ 12:09 PM
Great thread. I have been keeping my eye on this one since it started and I have to say that I am impressed with all the informed posters on the subject. I really hope that nothing comes of this, but it seems more and more likely that the west coast is in for a beating sometime soon based on the quakes and word coming from the area.

Thanks for all the great info people!

michigangirl you are heading into standard troublesome ATS territory: vague and ominous apocalyptic warnings from multiple unnamed sources.

posted on May, 13 2008 @ 12:26 PM
Well there are a number of people here in reno who beleive that this is not a harmless "swarm without purpose", and with all the hot springs, and the new opening of a geothermal plant, we know there is activity under the ground, but what we dont know is how it is increasing, or if the pool temps, are rising.
There are reports of sulpher smells in tahoe area, and We DO know that there were 2 meetings after the 4.7 to discuss the swarms, one for the gov. and state officials, then later one for the press and "us"

I have been curious about the lack of constant info from the nat. geol. centers, we are now in a sloooow down, just had a small one this morning (if the updates are accurate), so either this is all dying down (which I dont feel in my gut), or we are gearing up for another quake in the next couple days...
If we do go through a volcanic activity of any kind, I feel that the devestation will be great, especially since only a few roads come in through the mountains in the west..

I am a little worried at the "lack of anything" regarding the quakes.... If we are lucky, they will mention it on the 5am news that "quakes are slowing down", then on to another topic..

posted on May, 13 2008 @ 12:27 PM
Yeah, I know....I'm refraining from posting any more on this (after this one) just because of that, but I am hoping that someone locally might be able to either confirm or deny activity in this statement to get an indication if it's legit or not.

Also, even if my source did speak to someone at USGS that person might have just been a panicked employee who really isn't privy to all the details...or who knows...all I know is that my source would not lie about it just to mess with people. I'm trying to get more info out of him, but I'm sure everyone he sent it to is trying to do the same thing, so it may be a bit before I can get a follow-up.

I have seen this same message on various other "conspiracy sites", like godlike productions, etc..

not sure of the validity of the "sources", sounds like a panic scenerio

I don't know what's going on with the USGS Recent Activity for California and Nevada page, but they are not listing the quakes I personally feel. And the update time on that page has gone from about 4 minutes to 6 hours or more.

Yesterday I was sitting here at my computer and clearly felt a small quake at 12:33 pm. Both my dogs laying behind me jumped up at the same time. I kept checking the page for an update to see what the magnitude was, but there had been no update since 4 a.m. I filled out their Report an Earthquake form and in a couple hours, they put a 2.0 up on the page but put it at 1:37 p.m. ??? I felt no quake at 1:37 pm, and I was still at my computer. This is the second time this has happened in the past ten days. The first time, the quake I felt never showed up on the page. For what it's worth....

mich8igan are getting your info from the usgs websites right? if so, keep posting them. Its the only place I would TRUST to get earthquake info.

Although, if they aren't keeping track of the nevada ones the way they were then maybe they aren't trustworthy afterall.

I ran into a USGS employee at work olast week but he was a biologist and hadn't heard of the nevada quakes. I had to explain them to him. Kind of surprised me that he didnt know. So either he didn't know or he's not supposed to talk about it. COuld go both ways.

Anyways, thats moi duex centos.
