Didn't we have a lot of dead squid/fish turning up in this area some time ago?

Dead fish provoke alert around gulf...

related?

Peace


Also very recently on the other side of the Atlantic we had this www.abovetopsecret.com...

They cover a 5-mile stretch of Vila Nova de Gaia beach - no reason has yet been found for their appearance.

Whats with all the sea creatures being washed up on beaches lately? Have they forgot which way they are meant to be going?
Or is something else at work..

and...

I am personally sickened by this earthquake- but I am never one to doubt what the government- and world government is capable of. I am sure its most likely a natural occurance but i dont think its outside the realm of possibilities for us to consider alternative causes.

[edit on 13-1-2010 by xynephadyn]


So what of the other quakes around the world this week? or last month? or last year? there is no reason to believe in other causes and hundreds of events yearly that demonstrate the natural occurrence of quakes around the world.

So according to your data, about 140 major quakes(6.0 or more) occur per year. Is anyone curious that we don't hear about them more often?

Just because the others weren't man-made, doesn't mean that this one isn't. Unless you can explain to me what's so special about that 10 km depth, we have to attribute them to a man-made pattern.

So you don't find it odd at all that the #10 is so prevalent, while the other numbers are unique? At the very least, you could reply with, well, maybe this is where most of the plate tensions are.


The majority of the earthquake depth readings for the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake were at 30 kms or 19 miles, you are grasping at smoke and fog hoping someone will agree with you.

Date December 26, 2004 (2004-12-26)
Magnitude 9.3 Mw
Depth 30 km (19 mi)
Epicenter location 3°18′58″N 95°51′14″E / 3.316°N 95.854°E / 3.316; 95.854Coordinates: 3°18′58″N 95°51′14″E / 3.316°N 95.854°E / 3.316; 95.854
Type Undersea (subduction)

Because of its enormous energy release and shallow rupture depth, the earthquake generated remarkable seismic ground motions around the globe, particularly due to huge Rayleigh (surface) elastic waves that exceeded 1 cm in vertical amplitude everywhere on Earth.

On the subject of HAARP now. Not to diminish the sadness that this event has caused many people but I came here to look for any theories on whether this event is 100% caused by nature.

Is it possible to speculate freely at this website? My first impression here is of someone getting flamed for bringing up HAARP and now they are insensitive.

It struck me as a little odd that the capital of the poorest country in the Western hemisphere gets an extremely rare (for that area) 7.3 quake 10 miles off the coast where it could create a tsunami and do land damage. I do know that it is unlikely and all but I'm still curious now about the possibility.

the depth of 10.0 is VERY relevant, and very recurring.
last year, both the italian and the japanese quakes were at exactly 10.0, and these are the only ones i remember, there were more.
it is well worth investigating, 10.0 is a far too frequently recurring depth, even for 'older' data which is clearly no longer merely an estimate. the examples are FAR too many to list here, like an unwelcome guest on any tectonic data sheet. go check it out.

this stinks of haarp, sorry, and my heart goes out to those who are there. and if it is haarp, then it's effing disgusting beyond belief.

I never said anything about the Indian Earthquake. Honestly, I'm starting to think you're "one of them," because you are trying hard to deflect.

10.0. indeed. see my previous post ^

[edit on 13-1-2010 by darkcircle2009]
edit to add second line, and to direct the post to wookiep who originally posed the very pertinent question.

10.0 needs investigation.

So the major fault going under Haiti is not suspect in your mind? You'd rather come up with some fantasy of HAARP targeting a small third world country? For what reason? Make their lives even more harsh? Come on...

Remember Occam's Razor? There is a fault system under that area and it is known to cause EQ's. That just happened.. 1+1=2...

Or maybe UFO's shot their death ray at Haiti....

just noticing glaring patterns.

fault lines are obviously easily triggered.

Not from me, but I will ask you for data to show how a few watts of energy from a radar array can cause an energy release equal to several nuclear devices.

It is not rare, 7.3 to 7.5 has a frequency of around 200 years.

The quake was not centered off the coast. Google map data here.

Close to non-existent.

No, I'm not "one" of anyone, however I have studied tectonics for more than 25 years, the Pacific plate in particular.

we are mother nature, in the same way everything else in nature is.

as said, i am merely noticing striking (no pun) patterns, and have not studied tectonics for 25 years. and i would be intrigued to hear a learned opinion on such noticable repetitions in data. i mean that sincerely.

it just seems highly regular. 'unnaturally' so, if you excuse my own contradiction.

and i don't put anything past anyone. sadly.

So far I see people getting all excited about any talk about possible conspiracy. Why are you here (abovetopsecret) then? I'm not intimidated by your "superior" objectivity when you mention something about death rays and such. Luckily I can think for myself and I will ask questions somewhere else.

thanks for the support. and let's not forget this is a very serious matter. i'm sure we can all agree that a large scale tragedy has just happened, whatever our opinion on the cause.

it is not the place for tongue poking smileys.

The latest news on the devastating quake in Haiti..


Quake destroys UN's Haiti base

The headquarters of the UN peacekeeping mission in Haiti collapsed in Tuesday’s earthquake and a large number of UN personnel are missing, the UN peacekeeping chief said.

At least 11 peacekeepers were reportedly killed, eight from China and three from Jordan.

Alain Le Roy told reporters that UN troops, mostly from Brazil, were trying to rescue people from the wreckage of the five-story building, but “as we speak no one has been rescued from this main headquarters.”

“The main building that was the headquarters building has collapsed,” he said. “We know clearly it is a tragedy for Haiti, and a tragedy for the UN, and especially for the UN peacekeeping mission in Haiti.”



I heard on the local (Wash DC) station that some responders from Virginia and California are preparing to leave in support of the rescue/recovery effort..
