Huge earthquake strikes Italian heart


www.news.com.au

AN earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale rocked central Italy today and was felt in the capital Rome, but there was no immediate word of any casualties.

Some residents in the city of l'Aquila, east of Rome in the mountainous Abruzzo region, ran out into the streets and there were reports of wide cracks in some homes.

The US Geological Survey said the epicentre of the quake, which struck at about 1.35am GMT (9.35am AEST), was believed to be some 85km northeast of Rome.

It initially put the scale of the quake at 6.7 but later lowered it 6.3.

Residents of Rome, which is rarely hit by seismic activity, were woken by the quake. Furniture rattled and car alarms went off.

The quake was the lastest and strongest in a series to hit the l'Aquila area in the past few days.

Earthquakes can be particularly dangerous in parts of Italy where centuries-old buildings are left in disrepair.

No news of any casualties yet.There has been a recent surge in seismic and volcanic activity recently…..yellow stone, Tonga Island volcano, Chili volcano etc… I wonder what is causing this surge…is there anything being hidden from us? I can feel something big is going to happen very soon.... it is just not normal to have all this activity happening... something big about to wake up?????????

If you are saying that then I am, am-am.... That's all I can say here. But the 17th of April is important (I think), the timewave zero was correct about last Spetember, it should be correct this time around

This is starting to get a bit scary now. I was a bit sceptical about the time wave theory.....but now I have to say that it might be right.

I was thinking about the planet X theory as well....could it be that it is in approach and somehow the gravity of Planet X is having an effect on our planet thus causing a surge in seismic activity....

& peru is erupting.

Anyways..

This area is not known to have any sesmic activity in past 80 years..
So, I dunno whats going on.

Its on bbc now and they are saying a lot of buildings have collapsed...
people trapped, for sure, but no word of any deaths.

people are driving around now in masse.

I read a article last year warning Italy about something just like this happening and how it would cause irreparable damage to their greatest landmarks...

The .Gov scuffed...we don't have the money and that'll never happen here...

A lot of activity going on indeed. I have a few friends living in a small island in the Indian Ocean called Mauritius. That Island has few volcano craters which has been dormant or extinct for millions of years…many of them thought that they were extinct until recently they found that some of lakes that formed into the craters, the water acid level increased dramatically hinting that some activity may be starting.

An aftershock with a magnitude of 4.8 was reported about an hour later by the US agency.


Powerful earthquake strikes Italy

Don't forget Italy has got the Ethna volcano which many scientist has said is due for a massive eruption.

I bet someone around here will blame this on the USA. Probably HAARP. It has to be our fault. We are all just sitting around thinking of new ways to kill everyone.

This is bad news. I think the continental shelf along the east coast of the United States is going to give way shortly and flood out the entire state of Florida and most of the Eastern Seaboard.

Alas Plucky I am sorry to say no time for panic sex, I am too busy building the panic Arc!

HAARP, Time wave, Planet X...... Does anyone here for one second think that this is natural cause. All these activities that happened over other part of the world are known areas for these to happen.

Hmmm...

Between the quakes in the Puerto Rico, New Madrid, upstate NY, Greenland and now S Carolina...

Nah...

I'll go fer north of LA in Cali first...

I am no expert in planet X theory, but the recent increase in meteorite, debris, colliding satellite etc, I would say that you may have a point regarding gravitational effect of an approaching planet...some experts here might give us more details.

More news coming.


A number of people were reported to have been injured and others trapped under rubble in the area where the city of l'Aquila is situated, but officials had few details on the situation. The quake was centred in the mountainous Abruzzo region east of Rome. Several old structures collapsed in l'Aquila, the Italian news agency Ansa reported. Residents in many parts of central Italy felt the quake and some ran out into the streets.

Too much Aerospace and Defense industry there! If they thought that was going to go down they would have the Army Core of Engineers out there building a new planet!

I hope your right, this arc could be a lucrative tourist attraction one day!

Tickets, get your tickets, peanuts, peanuts, popcorn, popcorn, ice cold sodas, get your ice cold sodas...boy this economy is getting tough!

Thanks my friend.

Seriously we knew they were going to start firing up HAARP full time once February and the bogus Transition to Digital Cable Act took affect. Even though they suspended it, I think it's because they realized once they started coming up on schedule they were able to utilize enough bandwidth with so many people already on digital cable.

Woman and baby die as 6.7 magnitude earthquake hits Italy
www.news.com.au...
April 06, 2009 02:25pm

A STRONG 6.7 magnitude earthquake killed an elderly woman and a baby girl in central Italy's Abruzzo region today.

The two were pulled from the rubble of their home in the town of Fossa, near the Abruzzo capital L'Aquila, but rescue workers were unable to revive them, Italian television station Sky TG24 reported.

More casualties are feared in L'Aquila, where several homes collapsed and a student dormitory was partially damaged, the ANSA news agency reported after the quake that struck at 11.32 (3.32am Italian time).

The quake had a magnitude of 5.8 and its epicentre was five kilometres below L'Aquila, according to a statement by the Italian public safety authority.

The US Geological Survey put the quake at 6.3 magnitude and the Rome fire services reported a magnitude of 6.7.

The quake struck 95 kilometres northwest of Rome, at a depth of 10 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said.

The earthquake came just hours after a 4.6-magnitude tremor shook Italy's north-central region with no reports of damage.

The epicentre of the earlier quake, which occurred at 7.20am (10.20pm Sunday in Italy) near Ravenna in the Emilia-Romagna region, was exceptionally deep at 28 kilometres, public safety officials said.

Because of its depth, the tremor was felt over a wide area, notably in the Marche region further south on the Adriatic coast.

People inland near Bologna, as far north as Trieste and as far south as Aquila also reported feeling the quake.

Italy has a lot of volcano and the recent active one is Mount Ethna. I wonder if the others are about to show some activity?

Very well could be something to that...

Hope it isn't another Mt. Vesuvius/Pompeii deal...
