Israeli authorities warn hospitals to prepare for earthquake


www.breitbart.com

A strong earthquake could soon rock Lebanon and parts of Israel, authorities said on Monday, urging health officials in northern Israel to make preparations for such an event.

"The probability of an earthquake of a magnitude of up to six on the Richter scale, originating in Lebanon and being felt in Israel has increased," the health ministry said in a letter sent to medical officials in northern Israel.

Since February, abnormal seismic activity has been noted in southern Lebanon, which had suffered some 500 minor earthquakes in a three-month period, health ministry director-general Avi Yisraeli said in the letter.

To prepare for an earthquake... or, maybe something else? For retaliatory strike from Iran in case of attack? Seems interesting, this info.

This is disturbing.

I wonder if a warning like has ever been issued by Israeli officials before?


Seems odd to issue a warning that coantains a reference to a specific, expected magnitude.


Could that refenence be code for something else: perhaps a possible timeframe of when to expect casualties?

The general correlation is that an earthquake of magnitude 6 on the Richter scale produces as much energy as a 1 megaton nuclear explosion (1,000,000 tons of TNT). You would not feel an explosion like this on the other side of the planet (Earth or Mars) but it would be detected by seismographs (and seismologists can generally tell the difference between a nuclear explosion and an earthquake).


Not sure how valid that is but ill look around some more

EDIT: India's tests of < 1kt registered in the 4.7-5.3mb range

6 days or 6 weeks. The job will be done in this presidency. All those that say there will be no retaliation from russia or china are deluding themselves.

Remember the text messages on 9-11??? Weird.

Anyone know if there is a connection between the company that sent those and the government?

yeah, thats odd.

you cannot predict earthquakes full stop.

This just stinks of double talk.

I'd say the fact that there has been increased seismologic activity in the region since early this year could be a reason for this warning. At least it's possible it's nothing more than preparedness. Does anyone know if the hospitals around Reno, Nevada have been issued similar warnings by local authorities, as that's the most similar "unusually high seismic activity" location I can think of off the top of my head?

Actually, there's next to no seismic activity in that region compared to Nevada.

Here's a link to the USGS world earthquake tracking map: it records a full week's activity. You can see nothing at all happens there at any given time.

To me, sounds like a way to test emergency preparedness for the eventuality of an Iranian reprisal.

What are you talking about there is a 3.1 shown right there in Lebanon(
). I wonder how they came to expect it though, it didn't look like there was much of anything for the past few months. Good guess maybe?

i would say its possible
since an earth quake happens in a domino effect

each time an earth quake happens it off sets another one down the path.
as it moves that plates resulting in an earth quake.

something i watched on discovery, feel free to tell me i am wrong

HARP could be a factor in this..

As someone else pointed out regarding China and India.. after heated debates, both countries signed deals shortly after an "earthquake" took place...

Could this be a precaution to using HARP on Lebanon to create more instability so as to create chaos so as to get those in Lebanon to work together?

This will not only create confusion and focus within Lebanon but also look away from what might happen if Iran is provoked.

What better way to defend oneself by having opponents blaming a catastrophe rather then their nabours for their dying family and friends??

Considerable earthquake in the area is possible and even statistically overdue (once in hundred years, last in 1837).

But i find it weird that only north is supposed to be ready. This is a small country, last major earthquake was felt in 1837 (though there was also a big one in 1927) and even though the north suffered much more in 1837 other regions also suffered. And in 1927 the origin was not in the north, but in modern Jordan. So to prepare only in the north sounds ,again,weird. But north has a threat that south and center do not - Hizballah (Iran). So this is a bad development in any case.
A possible earthquake or a possible war.... Hmm, what to choose?
Edit: Sorry ,accidently deleted pard of the post before posting.

I heard Ben Fulford say that the Chinese suspect HAARP (a scalar weapon) caused their latest quakes.

If HAARP can place a quake in China, it can place one in Israel.

If this relates to the suspected Iran attack it won't matter if Russia or China retaliates. The US economy will collapse comepletely and the only significant source of investment and capital we have to shore-up and already teetring economy will be cut-off. Not to be doom-and-gloomer but it really IS that serious. The boneheads that make up our government are way,way,way over their collective head on this one.
