Today a rash of quakes began in the India region of the Indian Ocean - 20 quakes all 4 to 5 magnitudes. Interesting this is 4 days after the longest solar eclipse of our lifetime occurring in the area. Besides the tidal waves they have had right after the solar eclipse.

Lots of quakes in a short amount of time and within the time period Earthquake experts say Solar Eclipse quakes can happen, besides tidal influences.

A look at the abnormal tides in India beginning the day after the solar eclipse went across the country and directly over Mumbai. These pictures are all from Mumbai.

link to article: www.siliconindia.com...


Mumbai: Nearly 200 people have been evacuated from coastal areas, warnings have been sent out to those in low-lying regions and schools have advised students to stay at home as India's financial capital braces for a massive 5.5 metre high tidal wave, billed as the highest in 100 years, to lash it Friday afternoon.


The high tide is expected to hit Mumbai and the surrounding Konkan region at 2.05 p.m. The waters will ebb only after three to four hours, met officials said.

In the past two days, as waves measuring 4.85 and 5.1 metres lashed Mumbai, civic and disaster management authorities evacuated people -- mostly shanty dwellers -- from vulnerable areas like Colaba, Cuffe Parade, Andheri, Jogeshwari and even parts of neighbouring Thane.











Seems pretty odd these two things are happening right now - right after the longest solar eclipse in our lifetimes - right where it went over. Or as in the case of the quakes - North of where the quakes are happening.

Looks like all those quake experts - not associated with governments - may just be correct about solar eclipses, influences on the Earth.

could this effect the orbit of the earth in any way?it seems the moon is pulling pretty hard on the earth to cause tidal waves and earthquakes.

Yeah --- and they're having abnormally large waves in Huntington Beach, California today too. Explain that?

Or, how about finding the same bunch of earthquake numbers, in the same area on a different date? Look for a "swarm" of quakes, just like those in the OP.

(Actually, when they're down in the 4 range, they're more like aftershocks than quakes, right?)

As you pointed out in yet another thread, we did experience perigeal high tides earlier this week. From the pictures you posted it does not appear that people were particularly distressed about the high tides and high surf. It looks like they were enjoying the spectacle. Oh, it happened three days after the eclipse. But I suppose that's close enough for you.

BTW, there were no "tidal waves". The high surf was a result of a storm at sea. That combined with the high tides (normal), caused the excitement.

“There’s a storm out at sea. We can tell how violent it is, and how high the tide will rise from the wind,’’ says Khatim. “Did we know the tide was going to be this high today? Of course, the wind told us,’’ she retorts.

timesofindia.indiatimes.com...

A flurry of minor earthquakes. How unusual (not). The Andamans seem to be pretty far from the path of the eclipse. It would be a bit more impressive if you could have found something a little stronger and much closer the the path of totality. It would have helped if they at least occured on the day of the eclipse, much less when the eclipse was happening.

Nice try but epic fail. Eclipses do not affect tides or earthquakes.

I wouldn't be so bold as to say that eclipses do not affect earthquakes.

Here is at least one guy who argues differently. He uses Oliver Crane's gravitation theory and supernova energy to argue that during such an eclipse we expect to see some sort of downforce exerted on the surface of the planet... which in turn can cause the surface of the Earth to extend upwards to a height of 12 meters.

And that during the subsequent 6 days or so the Earth's surface will be settling back downward sparking quakes. He predicts one in the South of China between now and sometime early next week. Magnitude six or higher.

This really has me pretty interested.

Oh wow, a flurry of 4.0-5.0 earthquakes happened 4 days after a solar eclipse! Quickly, let's all run around panicking!

Let us say for a second that eclipses do affect earthquakes, tidal waves, tornadoes, or whatever else you're saying. If we have just went through "the longest solar eclipse of our lifetime," doesn't that mean we are currently seeing the worst? If the worst that is going to happen are these minor earthquakes/aftershocks, then solar eclipses are the least of my worries.

Another day, another doomsday thread. When major doomsday events actually start happening, people may be too burnt out from all the fear mongering that goes on currently. Then again, that may be what they want...

I am glad someone started a thread on these earthquakes.

I do not know if they have anything to do with the solar eclipse, but what I do know is that they are unusual. It is not uncommon to see a swarm of 4+ quakes after a big quake, however there has been no big quake.

I look at earthquakes of the world everyday, and this certainly caught my eye this morning. I didnt realize until later that this was the area that had that 9.3 quake in 2004.

Not gloom and doom, but certainly interesting when you know the recent history.

I see, even after rereading her OP a couple times now, just to make SURE, nothing about panicking, doom and gloom, or anything like that. I see an OP that's just presenting information.

Knee-jerk reacting much?

For me, I am glad the info came up, been looking to see if there could be any swarms like this popping up in the area, just to confirm whether or not the eclipse might have had even a small effect on the area. Which it does appear to be doing. That's not doom and glooming, that's looking for facts.


Sheesh.

Once again questioningall, thanks for the info again on something I was not aware about, I will be keeping an eye on this too and ATS is a better place with your threads of information.

...Wait a minute...Where's the whale beachings?

Shouldn't some poor whales have beached themselves a few days before this event??

Here is a site showing the tides in India and if you go back through the years, around this time in July give or take is a period of the highest tides of the month, the tides for this right now are high rated at nearly 5 metres, these were all measured a year in advance to create the chart. They are not abnormal. They have been known about for ayear at least. And with the heavy rain and storm activity the city of Mumbai have been preparing for this in advance. Same thing happened in 2005 in July with no solar eclipse and is expected to happen again proabably next year.

What do you think the cutoff point is for blaming the eclipse? 2 days? 4 days? A month? Or is any earthquake that happens from here on out caused by the eclipse.

Eclipses do not cause earthquakes. Eclipses do not cause higher tides than occur during any new moon.

I'm glad you made this thread Questioningall, because I have also been watching these earthquakes all day. Very interesting. I never really realized so many can actually occur in one area in just one day. Coming from the northeast, obviously I don't know much about quakes, so thank you for educating me some on quakes. That goes for the rest of you posters also. appreciate these learning experiences.
