I live in Miami Beach which is a man made barrier island constructed by the Army Corps of Engineers to protect the Miami mainland from hurricanes and is a few hundred miles from Haiti. This past Saturday afternoon on the 9th of January I started hearing strange rumblings coming from the ground that reminded me eerily of my days living in Southern California.

In fact it reminded me so much so of those when I noticed a thread here on Above Top Secret on Saturday about a 6.5 magnitude earthquake off of Northern California I posted this post below even though it was pretty off topic for a California earthquake.

For some reason I felt it was relevant.

I continued to hear these rumblings a few times a day all the way until Tuesday afternoon the last one was a little after five in the afternoon, very shortly before the earthquake struck Haiti.

This is going to sound really bizarre but there was a series of low rumblings here in Miami, Florida.

Definitely not Jet Aircraft and definitely not a surface explosion, but a series of about 15 second audible rumbles spaced by about 30 seconds, and about 10 of them all in all.

What ever it was, it was something.

When I went out shortly afterwards to go to the store riding my bicycle I noticed that the pavement on the road I normally take had some long hairline cracks in it, some as long as 15 feet, they weren’t there yesterday and I do believe they looked fresh and might have been related to the rumbling noise I heard.

It’s most strange.

I lived in California for over a decade and have been through a number of Earthquakes up to 7.0 on the Richter scale, it definitely didn’t feel like an Earthquake but it looks to me like something significant was taking place under ground all the same.


Now I hate to say this as I know a lot of people are deeply affected by this tragedy, believe me when I say that. There is a very large Haitian community here in Miami and I have friends and business associates who have probably lost loved ones and friends in this quake.

But two things were very out of place here in Miami this past weekend when I started hearing these rumblings.

The first was it didn’t even reach 50 degrees for a high in Miami that day; it was the coldest day in Miami we had in 90 years. The normal high would have been 78. The normal low would have been 67. It was 36 degrees that night.
We have had the longest cold snap the city has seen in over a hundred years.

The second odd thing was the rumblings; in thirteen years of living here I have never heard anything like them here. They really did sound like the rumblings that usually preceded an earthquake in California and I have been through plenty of earthquakes in California to know that sound.

Now if my naked human ears could detect this how in the heck did Caltech not have any warning of this Haitian Earthquake before hand?

I honestly believe this is the work of HARRP or something else not Mother Nature.

They have now reported on CNN that groups of people have been yelling tsunami and panicing people into dropping what they do have to run for higher ground just to find out that it was a ploy used to rob them of what little they have.

I dont blieve the two quakes are connected. Also I dont base this opinion on any geological evidence..I barely have a high school education. In my un-educated opinion thie only thing this quake is connected to is the genocide in Rwanda, Hurricane Katrina. the tsunami in Mylasia, ongoing civil war in Somalia and Libera....I think you all get the point.
Watching Fox news tonight(yes I admit it) I saw that Bill Clinton has already set up a charity for those affected.
Does anyone else find that as transparent as Ido? If it were that bad it would already be completely contained militarily. Border patrol wouldnt cut it. That place is alredy disease infested from what little I know. My thoughts would be on US border security (the coastline to be exact). If this was "caused" I hope all the fine points were taken into consideration.

A source at the UN base in Les Cayes said:

1. The road in Tapion (over hills) are passable but still dangerous. Boulders are still unstable.

2. Route 200, the road closest to the ocean, is an access point into PAP.

The voyage is doable, but still precarious. Plus then there’s what to do once reaching PAP…

I think you may just be a bit misinformed. Military is absolutely being a presence, but it takes some planning. Roads are impassable, logistics take time.

Clinton is an envoy to Haiti from the UN, how is his coordinating aid "transparent", in any way other than being aid to Haiti?

And I am sure there is a more appropriate thread for a conspiracy theory than this one, which is an update and resource thread.

Haiti imagery layer now available

Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at 7:05 PM

We've worked closely with GeoEye throughout the afternoon to make their most recent satellite imagery of Haiti, taken at approximately 10:27am EST today, available as a KML overlay for Google Earth. You can download the KML here and open it in Google Earth, or look at it via the browser plug-in below. You can also open the file in Google Maps. As you'll see, the imagery shows a powerful glimpse into the destruction in Haiti. Here are before-and-after screenshots of the Presidential Palace and an area of Port-au-Prince:
We will continue to automatically update the layer (you'll only need to download it once) as we are able to make more imagery and data available.

Tsunami recorded - emphasis mine


Tsunami Evaluation NWS PACIFIC TSUNAMI WARNING CENTER EWA BEACH HI 23:45 UTC TUE JAN 12 2010 A tsunami measuring 12 cm crest-to-trough was recorded at Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic and a tsunami less than 1 cm crest-to-trough was recorded on a deep ocean gauge in the east-central Caribbean. Based on these data there could have been destructive tsunami waves near the earthquake epicenter but there is not a threat to coastal areas further away.Therefore the tsunami watch issued by this center is now canceled. For any affected areas – when no major waves have occurred for at least two hours after the estimated arrival time or damaging waves have not occurred for at least two hours then local authorities can assume the threat is passed. Danger to boats and coastal structures can continue for several hours due to rapid currents. As local conditions can cause a wide variation in tsunami wave action the all clear determination must be made by local authorities. This will be the final product issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center for this event unless additional information becomes available.

No misinformation here. I have payed attention to how much and how quickly we have moved on this.

Clinton is an envoy to Haiti from the UN, how is his coordinating aid "transparent", in any way other than being aid to Haiti?

According to common "conservative rhetoric Bill Clinton has allways catored to ethnic minorities starting in his own state. Its what got him elected president along with broken economic promises as well as calaboratin with terrorists.What better hero to choose to lead the relief effort in Haiti?


And I am sure there is a more appropriate thread for a conspiracy theory than this one, which is an update and resource thread.

All I saw in the post was "Are the Recent California Quake and the Haiti quake connected?" And I answered the question and gave my reasoning for it.

Thank you so much for your intuition and voice of reason. Blessings to you. I fully agree with everything you said.

I just wanted to go backwards reading this thread, I am here and in full support of this terrible tragedy.

What China should be doing is sending hundreds of personnel that made up the rescue teams from the Sichuan quake. They have the first hand experience and are not so reliant on technology.
