Extreme tides caused by moon spark fears of tsunami, supernatural phenomena in Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — It's only the moon, emergency officials in Puerto Rico are telling nervous islanders who have feared that recent extreme tides portend a tsunami or biblical catastrophe.

Waters receded up to 50 feet (15 meters) this week during low tide on Puerto Rico's southern coast, sparking a flurry of calls to seismology and geological agencies from people worried about natural disasters or supernatural events. Tsunamis are sometimes preceded by a dramatic drop in sea level.

"There are people who ha

This is a very interesting story. Tides 50 feet lower at a huge area of beaches? What an intense gravitational pull must be accomplishing that.

A lot of speculation abounds about a mysterious planet X hidden close by. Maybe this is proof?

I live in South Florida by the beach, I think I will check out the beach in the morning and see if there is any difference here...

interesting

keep us abreast of whats going on over that way.

the most I have seen is a 9 meter drop, but thats just the tides in Broome.

It states in the article that this is normal and happens a couple times a year. Does this mean a couple times a year on specific spots or a couple times a year all over the world when the moon is close. If it happens everywhere a couple times a year, why arent people who live in coastal areas accustomed to this. It seems if this were common a couple times a year people would remember it happening last year.

It would be like me calling the authorities to inform that the leaves on the trees have mysteriously changed color.

cool story, will be keeping an eye on this one. S&F.

The article states it supposedly happens just once or twice a year somewhere at random all over the world.

For a sea just to drop fifty feet and stay out a length of time? That's a pretty big event. That would reveal miles and miles of coastline never seen.

I have never heard of this before. I think this is rather interesting.

This is really fascinating. Like the article says usually when you see this its a precourser to a tidal wave. This hasn't been the case here at least so far.

Thats a very interesting article on the moon. I enjoyed reading that.

This part about the moon was very interesting...

Furthermore, the fracturing of a rock sometimes produces not only the optical pulse but also "a curious radio emission" with frequencies ranging from about 900 to 5,000 hertz, Zito says. This is "believed to be due to the rotational, vibrational and linear motions of charged fresh surfaces created during cracking" -- in other words, a rearranging of the rock's crystal structure. The wavelengths of emissions at these frequencies ought to be detectable by an antenna aboard a moon-orbiting satellite, he says. If Zito's hunch is correct, the radiation pattern should resemble that observed in the laboratory studies.



It doesn't explain the tides though does it? Or could it should I say?

Thanks for posting the link.

Well, since you bring up planet X, there are lots of things happening out in space these days. Planets are warming, getting dragged out of orbits etc.

Most people think the weather on EArth is just that, weather on earth, but it is reflecting what is tossed at it regarding x-rays and cosmic E.m. storms and gammy rays... The sun heats the oceans and that in turn creates storme, more heat thru any or all of the above, will create super storms and super tsunamies.

Dont believe any thing else, the mainstream media say absolutely nothing more than they are allowed to say on the topic...


You see it on tv, but not all of it, so you think, Another tornado ? 'oh well, off to work'..But the reality is that it is the climate that is changing, I try to tell people that, the change has started, it is not in 40 years time, just propeganda to keep the next decades quite about the issue...

planets being dragged off their orbit seems a big deal, i'ld have a hard time swallowing it. you don't happen to have a reputable source, do you?

That does seem like a pretty big deal we would hear about. Though it also sounds like the kind of thing the government might now want use to hear about.

It would be hard though to cover up every Astronomer that witnessed this in the skies.

This is interesting I see there has been a 7.1 quake on the richter scale over night off the coast of nearby Hondurus. I wonder if these two events are relatied to one another? Maybe a crack in a fault like could have caused the ocean to drop in that area?

If they were related, I would assume that the media would have been all over it. Although we all know what assuming will do for ya. I remember looking into the moon in January because I happened to catch a moonrise that gave the illusion that the moon was far too close to the earth. Anyway, I found this:

apod.nasa.gov...

It seemed to imply that January would be the closest the moon would be to the earth in 2k9. Then I read that the moon was in an elliptical orbit around the earth and thought - oh, well that explains it. But I am not sure it does because it seems like the next close pass would be a month away.

The full moon in January was a rare full moon that happens once a year. The fully moon in October is going to be an even rarer one that only happens once every several years.

That should be interesting to see. Thanks for posting the link friend.

I thought this story might bring more interest from the Planet X supporters. Certainly an other planetary body in close hidden orbit to our own could cause a demonstrative change in tidal conditions.

It's been raining cats and dogs all day here in Miami so I haven't gone over to the beach to check the ocean levels here.

isnt the supposed reasoning behind the whole mayan calender 2012 thing i mean isnt planet x or naburu or whatever people call it these days suppose to cause the earth to flip or something and there is supposed to be huge tidal waves and #

idk all i know is the weather has been getting pretty menacing in the last 10 years

My suggestion is to watch the animals closely. Especially the non-domesticated ones.

When their behavior begins to change I would think very seriously about packing my things and taking a long vacation.

A long way away.

You said :

I am no expert on the tides, but I do know enough to say there's nothing at all random about them.

Mariners have understood tides for many centuries.




Spring Tides
When the moon is full or new, the gravitational pull of the moon and sun are combined. At these times, the high tides are very high and the low tides are very low. This is known as a spring high tide. Spring tides are especially strong tides (they do not have anything to do with the season Spring). They occur when the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon are in a line. The gravitational forces of the Moon and the Sun both contribute to the tides. Spring tides occur during the full moon and the new moon.

Neap Tides
During the moon's quarter phases the sun and moon work at right angles, causing the bulges to cancel each other. The result is a smaller difference between high and low tides and is known as a neap tide. Neap tides are especially weak tides. They occur when the gravitational forces of the Moon and the Sun are perpendicular to one another (with respect to the Earth). Neap tides occur during quarter moons.

The Proxigean Spring Tide is a rare, unusually high tide. This very high tide occurs when the moon is both unusually close to the Earth (at its closest perigee, called the proxigee) and in the New Moon phase (when the Moon is between the Sun and the Earth). The proxigean spring tide occurs at most once every 1.5 years.

So, anyway, if the 'regular people' who have lived in that area for years and years are saying something's 'wrong with the tides' than this is probably true.

Any explaination coming out of some government lab should definately be taken with a 'grain of salt.'

A lot of people were predicting Nibiru aka Planet X would make it's first pass by the Earth in the middle of May this year.

Here we are at the end of may with scant little evidence that this prediction holds true.

This might be one of the few pieces that might support that theory...

then again it might not!
