This many "big" quakes in just 2 days time? With a 7.2 yesterday! Today so far there have been 19 - 5 to 6M + quakes.

I have not seen a concentration of this high of magnitude quakes - since I began watching the maps last year. There may be lots of 1 and 2 M quakes in one area, but 5+M in one area, over such a short amount of time?

BTW: those were whales that had beached themselves in Manila not dolphins. The papers have corrected themselves....

www.breitbart.com:80...


The head of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Malcolm Sarmiento initially said on local radio and television the stranded mammals were dolphins, but experts told AFP they were in fact melon-headed whales.

They are at a shallow point on the ring of fire and there is also some volcano's in that area that have been acting up for a few months now. It is so bad in one area that they have had volcanic gasses coming up in lakes that they use to breed fish in; a main staple of their diet. One of the reports estimated that the loss of fish in one lake was over 7.5 tonnes. They had yet to come up with a concrete number do to the shear size of the clean up under way but figured it would be much closer to 9 tonnes.
One thing to keep in mind is that with all of these very large sized quake swarms in that one area, means that in all likely hood a volcano is getting ready to blow if it hasn't already. If it hasn't started to spill it's going to be one hell of a show when it does.

thats crazy. 21 earthquakes so far today. Wonder whats going on with the super cauldra, and if this will have any effect on the others. Going to keep my eye on this one today.

Well there is this story out of Hawaii, that looks to fit in with what is happening around the area too:

link: northshorekauai.com...


It was the second whale calf carcass spotted off Kaua’i’s west coast in the past two weeks, Ortiz said. A carcass had been reported on privately owned Ni’ihau Island in late January.

Investigators from the state departments of Land and Natural Resources, and Health, weren’t able to find a whale carcass when they were on Ni’ihau to investigate a fish kill there last week, DLNR aquatic biologist Don Heacock said.

The results of that investigation, which found hundreds of dead reef fish on several Ni’ihau beaches, are pending results from various labs, Heacock said yesterday.

Fish species found dead were more than 90 percent triggerfishes (humuhumu), Heacock said, but included some rudderfish (nenue), a snapper (ta’ape), and several other nearshore species.

Until the cause of the fish kill is determined, people are advised not to eat reef fish caught off Ni’ihau.

They shouldl have guessed that a big quake was coming, it was easy to see that a huge earthquake cell was already out there because of the dolphins beaching themselves.

I told all of you in one of your other thread that dolphins, whales and porpoises are one of the best indicators.

Interesting posts! I had noticed that that area of the ring of fire had been a bit quiet lately. When the pressure isn't relieved by a bunch of small quakes you get buildups to big quakes. Whenever there are earthquake swarms you have to consider volcanic activity. It is a natural phenomena and when one lives near a volcano one takes that risk.

Ah QA Bless their souls, I am so sorry to see the signs so bad for all of us just now. I have posted several times in the past days that I was unable to get any insurance company to sell me EQ insurance, there is a moratorium on it, a hold. You cannot buy it at any cost. Remember i am in the Midwest.

It is going to get very bad my friend very bad, and the worst part is that the GP will not be pre advised of the events to come.

Thanks for the heads up on the EQs today. You know this could set off the ring of fire volacanic activity.

I wonder if we'll see another Krakatoa event in this area again. Didn't the last one trigger the little ice age?

Could it be a demon is rising from his incarceration in the earth. Hmmm, not sure, but the bible mentions that some very powerful demons were incarcerated by God for the mayhem they were causing in ancient times past. One of which was locked in chains somewhere deep in the Euphrates river, and the bible states they will be loosed in the end times for a short season.

I had to fight like hell to get EQ insurance this last December. I am glad I did, we have had a few around here since then.

They have looked at the reports of all the EQ's happening, and not doing it anymore.

This many VERY BIG EQ's in one spot, is weird.... lots of little ones happen around an area, but Big ones?

Some interesting symptoms going around too, right now.

I have been constantly checking in with this site:

www.syzygyjob.com...

Very interesting stuff.... also a person monitoring radio waves "Jack Cole" off that site, predicted an 8m where the quakes have been hitting.

Two more big ones have hit the general area this afternoon.

The recent earthquake data from the INDONESIA area is damn near unbelievable. The residents nearby must be terrified. No reports from the MSM as usual. We can only observe the data and wonder "what's going on" This is some awful, powerful, headbanging, heavy metal rockin happening.

Indonesia is always frequented by alot of large quakes.

Some of these quakes, about 36 of them were Aftershocks.

Still it's always of concern considering what happened in the past in this region.

2 more a little less in strength.

Those poor people there, but the news hasn't said anything about it.

You don't hear anything on the news about those earthquakes because they have mostly been taking place out away from the land areas; 150 miles or more from land. So they probably don't feel any of them. They might have barely felt the M7.2 at 150 miles away, but they would not feel too much.

There are many of the most active volcanoes in the world, in this region and also a supervolcano at Toba in Sumatra. This is where the earth is begining to make her move. In essence the whole "ring of fire" is in the process of lighting up. When the crustal plates are hot at the borders, the plates move easier and faster. There may also be a reversal of earths' magnetic field on he verge of occuring.

This is exactly what we can expect as the oceans rise. It changes the pressure on the earth's crust, resulting in more and more intense quakes, more volcanic activity, in turn affecting weather and causing tsunami's, it is all going down exactly like we were told it would,only about 1000 years earlier than originally proposed.
