"It's a thermal anomaly," said Ron Oatman, spokesman for the Ventura County Fire Department.

"A thermal anomaly". No kidding.

Definitely click on the link to see the photograph. Worth the trip.

Allen King, a retired geologist with the U.S. Forest Service who went to the site Friday, said the smoking ground is "a normal occurrence" that does not appear to be the result of human activity.

".... a normal occurrence"... I bet he wouldn't think it was normal if it was in his back yard.

Definition of anomaly: deviation from the common rule : IRREGULARITY
something different, abnormal, peculiar, or not easily classified

So, if it's a normal occurrence, why don't they have a name for it?

Here's the story, which is definitely related to the other "thermal anomaly" in Colorado that was posted here a few weeks ago.

Photo of smoke rising from "thermal anomaly"/fissure

From the photograph, it looks like they don't want to get too close to it, or let the press get too close.

space cadet, that story worries me, there have been hot spots popping up around the world, and there is never an explanation for what causes it.... It seems to me that it is in some way geothermic in nature....

I have had ringing ni my left ear, and lots of pressure, mainly in the left ear all morning....

slight back ache, but less than yesterday.

I forgot to mention that I had South America precursors this morning-- still waiting on Chile. Or Peru.

We had something here awhile back about 800 degree ground temps in Colorado now it seems to be two acre's, as you all know this isn't good.

There excuse is stupid and common sense tells you people as a whole believe what they are told so this buys them time.

I wonder could Yellowstone be bigger then we thought or could it also be birthing like the underwater volcanoes and new fissures and/or caulderas are in the making. Could it be coal mines as in Pennsylvania I need to check out coal areas, I know wyoming has hugh amts. of coal shail.

I want to know why with the tech we have in the sky that NASA can't get pictures and why they don't know what is happening, hmmmmm maybe they do and just not telling.

After seeing the way the USGS changes quakes it wouldn't surprise me at cover-up.

It is 08-05-08 10:26AM'

I am thinking that Japan will have a decent quake, probably 4.5 or bigger, due to ear sounds/pressure.....

edit---- forgot to give a window... the aches and sounds have ended, so I am giving a 24 hour window..

Katt are the quakes still picking up in Reno per day. Can you relist for me the USGS for your area. I know it's way back on page 27 but I don't know how to bring it up here. My computer knowledge goes so far, lol.

China looks to be having a go with quakes again. When I was talking 9+ I wasn't really talking earthquake as we know it, I'm talking several large mountainous eruptive explosions that would egual a 9+ earthquake.

Don't think it will happen but thought I should list it just in case.

Oil burning my rear. Oil comes out of the ground cold. Oil fires burn hotter than fuel fires and it takes a heating torch to set it on fire. I love how they down play this by saying it is no public safety hazard.

I would love for someone there to tell me if they smell Sulfur or not. If you smell Sulfur then it is Lava and they would be able to smell if it was oil if it was smoking like that.

Sometimes when they drill for oil they run into Hydrogen Sulfur gas and it can not be smelled or seen. It is deadly and can kill everyone on an oil rig so they are now all set up with detectors and alarms.

This area and all the other ones should be fenced off and monitored by gas detectors as the gas can run down into the valleys and kill without warning.

The crap they expect us to believe. I work with oil everyday at work and sometimes need to set it on fire and it takes more than you would think to really get it burning. I have been to the most active Volcano. I can tell you without being there 100% positive that this can only be LAVA. Lava makes nice tunnels where ever it wants.

Good morning, It's 08-06-08 7:21 AM

I am feeling a severe right ear pressure and pain, again, this is a new precurser, as I have only had left ear pain before.

I am thinking somewhere around Fresno and the coast today at some point, but am not sure how big it might be, as this pressure/pain is new

I agree 100% with you, there is no way this is non dangerous situation, yet it like all other similer incidents, and even the woman falling through the trail at yellowstone, get very minimum exposure.
I am seeing a lot of "weird" yet almost noticible patterns with quakes and geothermic activity, especially around old volcanic areas. I can only imagine what kind of network all the lava tubes, and channels are like under our country, especially out here in the west coast.

I'm thinking Pacific Northwest... in the U.S., probably Oregon, or could be Alaska butting in as usual. Outside the U.S., could be the Phillipines. And I'm also going with damntheptb on Central California.

I'm still very concerned about this ground temperature 800 degree+ thing in a couple different locations. Ventura County Cal. The other place was in Colorado wasn't it or Yellowstone.

I know Cal. gets lots of fires but could there be a possibility that the 800-100 fires at least some been started by temperatures underground we don't know of yet?

It seems that this news is just being written but ignored why aren't people out there up in arms wanting to know what is causing this.

We the people aren't being told anything but they don't know. With the tech. that NASA has up there they could get pictures and know.

With ground heat like that the insects and animals have to move out into other areas so everyone needs to keep an eye on this that lives in these areas.

Magnitude 4.7 - GULF OF CALIFORNIA

Nothing earth-shattering.

You're right, pynner-- that was some downgrade on the California gulf EQ.

The Andreanof Islands in the Aleutians were quite busy last night. That region is very seismic, but this swarm is notable.

I had trouble getting to sleep last night until well after 2 a.m. and I should've been unconcsious by 11 p.m., given the yard work I did. The dogs seemed restless as well, especially the puppy. We'll see what happens today.
