We better have a quake over 4.5 tomorrow or I will be upset with the Juan. I bet my wife that if we get a 4.5+ on the west coastish area I get a ....... and if we don't I need to take her out on a romantic dinner.

Lets make for a "windy" night for me please.

Now come on JR, you ought to know better than to bet on earthquakes! But sounds like either way you get a... No fair! If you were gonna bet her, she should at least get you doing the laundry and dishes and yard and cleaning and whatever else for week if she wins!

It looks like there might be a triple junction around the Washington state area...or rather, off the coast of Washington. A triple junction is where three techtonic plates meet causing a lot of activity in the area.

Okay, I just have got to answer this before I go to bed because you hit on two things that I have really noticed lately, but felt kinda silly mentioning. Now that YOU have been brave enough to bring it up first though...well...

First, your rainbow comment. There have been three different times in the past week alone that there were wierd rainbows, just locally to where I live. First I was driving into town and out of the blue was this small, low to the ground (looked like 100 feet up at the most) complete rainbow. Right there in town....and it wasn't raining. It had not been raining, there were only a few clouds in the sky. It was really, really wierd.

Then the next day there was this HUGE 'sun rainbow' I call them. You see these occasionally, it is more of a corona affect, or whatever you call it. was much bigger or thicker than what you usually see, and it was a complete, huge circle. Even my kids commented on it.

Then the next day or two later, we were driving down the freeway and off to the west, out over the water there were two 'bands' of rainbows. They were not circles around the sun, or your regular rainbow shape, but just a big wedge of wide rainbow running straight up and down. There were two of them spaced several miles apart. Again, it was mildly overcast but not raining. The kids also commented on this.

NEXT: your pressure comment. Please expand on that statement. For the past few weeks I have been experiencing what I would explain as what feels like a pressure change when you go over the mountains. My head feels a bit heavy and i have to pop my ears. I thought there was just something wrong with me (maybe there is...I have MS), but you saying that just made me wonder.

Alright....going to bed now. Thanks again for all the input!

You might want to check around where you live. I once lived in Auburn,WA not too long ago actually and when we first moved there, this sound would come once in a while and everytime it happened, I was always thinking "Oh crap, IT`s happening!" (the apocalypse) And then we realized it was the trains. theres some kind of station about 6 blocks away and they make a horrible rumble whenever they come to a complete stop. At least I think thats what it was. Another funny story tho, when we lived there, I used to say "I swear theres a huge magma reservoir under our bedroom" because it could be the dead of winter and it would get hot in our house with no heater on. Somehow it was 74 degress F once. I checked our digital thermometer. This was in January. Yeah I honestly don`t like living in WA. if anyone has an escape plan let me know... cause if theres magma under half the state... what if that caldera collapses, and takes a few million of us with it?

In that case, why didnt you define T&C? Or OP? Just joshin ya but I agree when I was new(er) I didn`t understand a lot and just today deciphered GW GLOBAL WARMING. somehow I thought it had something to do with george dubya but the context never made sense enough in the posts I happened to see for me to figure it out until today I was posting and wishing I could shorten "global warming" cause I typed it so many times, LOL! I do sometimes feel the ground wobble here in WA but by the time I can focus on it its almost always gone. Leading me to blame it on my imagination most of the time. But the volcanoes surrounding us at all times are never far from thought. I just want to know how close you`d have to be for it to be dangerous. Unless of course if its one of those crazy super eruptions then I know the whole planet is at stake. Human activities cant be helping... unless our government is activating quakes elsewhere to alleviate ours? I hope that is not true I`d rather die spectacularly by having half the state drop into a caldera. DONT STEAL MY GLORY HAARP!

I got this from

Secret underground bases in WASHINGTON

1. Mt. Rainier, Washington
Function unknown.
Levels: Multiple
Tunnels to: Unknown
Notes: A very active UFO base exists beneath Mt. Rainier. There are also said to be underground "vaults" containing
records of the ancient Lemurians.

2. Mt. St. Helens, Washington
Function: thought to be electromagnetic/ultra- and subsound research

3. Yakima Indian Reservation
Function unknown
Notes: Southeast of Tacoma Washington, on the Reservation, in an area 40 by 70 miles. Unusual sounds from underground (Toppenish Ridge). Low flying Silver Cigar shaped craft seen to disappear into the Middle fork area of Toppenish creek

ok so what peaks my interest is the part that says 'Function: thought to be electromagnetic/ultra- and subsound research' maybe this explains the resonating sound you describe.

nothing at all to worry about!

I'm sure the Government would notify us if there were issues! I'm sure the lava tube is absolutely stable!

I finally had some time this morning to look around at the different seismos to see if I could pick out any kind of trend.

First of all, here is an updated link to the bad one in the original post:

good link for PNW seismos

This is a relatively new network, and it is obvious that they are still working out many bugs. I found some stuff that I think warrants further looking, but I am not educated enough to give an opinion on it, so I am hoping others here are!!

Take a look at these stations, being to sure to look at the 24 hr, 1 day, 2 day and three day option on all of them for comparison:


I don't think I need to point out what I'm talking about, it is very obvious. It occurs at the same time on all the station, and as you can see by the map they are scattered around the sound. What do you think? Rush hour? The tides? I just don't know. *scratching my head*

Also of note, there were several micro quakes on Mount baker today, another just a few minutes ago. Here is a link to that seismo:

mount baker

There have been several also in the other ranges, including helens and rainier. Here is a link to all those seismos:

PNW volcano seismo network

Is it unusuall? No, not really. These are actice volcanos, they have EQ. When you start seeing clusters though, you definately pay attnetiona and the ones at baker have me looking. I don't want to see a trend there or an increase in size.

Anyways...nothing extra to add at this time. Obviously, for any monitoring the world EQ's, it has so far been a day of low level, clustered activity....basically all around the globe. There is suposed to be a wave of geomagnetic energy headed our way compliments of the sun. Many claim this can have an affect on the EQ's, so if this is true we should see this activity get a little stronger.

If the emerging pattern holds true, we are due for another 4-5 mag range EQ off the Oregon/WA coast today. We shall see!

Your updated question, after I asked for clarification:

What I was getting at, was if there IS a magma chamber that does extend out under the ocean floor, I am wondering about the tsunami from the Chile quake. Now, we didn't have what you would call an impact, but we did have a tidal surge from it and currents, etc. So it did affect our waters. What I am wondering is if you would think it possible that all the influence on the ocean waters might cause enough displacement to have an impact on said possible magma chamber.

My answer would be no, that I don't believe the tidal surge would have displaced enough water in your area to really have the kind of effect you are talking about. I think if there was any effect on the JDF plate and surrounding areas at all, it may have come from the big 8.8 Chile quake itself. And possibly even from some of the bigger aftershocks, as many of those have been in the 6.5 + magnitude range.

The tidal surge was relatively small, and I don't believe any comparison to the sheer power of that 8.8. Also, it would seem those waters would recede back into the ocean, equalizing back out any displacement rather quickly.

You could be right, in your assumetion that if there is a caldera under wa it would realease its buildup of presure at the volcanos, even the new one they found off shore, it could be a natural event that has allways happened, but some just noticed. but then again I dont know last time I even botherd reading up on this sort of thing was years ago.

That sounds just like the government building underground bunkers for there projects, hopefully they can come up with something that doesn't suck. I'm sick and tired of all these aircraft's that have no real function other then looking pretty. Whats the point of wasting money on it if you never use it. its like me building a car that goes 5000 miles per hour but the speed limit is 60. its a useless car.

You bring up an interesting point mentioning that the pressure inside the Earth seems to be increasing. It made me think of articles I have read on the 2006 Indonesian Quake as well as on the recent Chilean event where both quakes actually reduced the circumference of the Earth. Being that the mass of the Earth is fairly constant, wouldn't shrinking the size of the Earth be like poking holes in and then squeezing a tube of toothpaste. With nowhere to go, it seeps out the holes when pressure is applied. I would think this would hold true, albeit on a much larger scale where the Earth in Concerned.

Wikipedia Article Referring to Earth's Reduced Oblateness After the Dec 26th, 2006 Indonesian Quake - Resulting in 2.68 microsecond reduction in the length of a day(In Energy Released by EQ Section).

Thank you for your answer! What you said makes sense, and I would have to agree with you.

So the CME is suposed to hit TODAY. WE will see if it stirs anything up.

So far just a 4.0 off the coast, all else is quiet here!

posted on Mar, 23 2010 @ 03:27 PM
So all has been relatively quiet here since my last post. Including today, BUT: I just noticed these two signatures today showing up on almost every seismo station on the volcanic range here in washington. It's not at all wierd to see the same one on different stations on the same volcano....however, these two are showing all the way from crater lake, to mount baker, to mount rainier, helens and the strongest at Hood. I just think it is odd....anyone have an explanation for what these might be? I checked with USGS and there were no recorded quakes in washington so far today, and there weren't any large enough ones around those times to register. Here are some links to look at. The signatures are at 1413 and 1531 UTC.

The strongest sigs are at stations TDH (hood) and RCS (Rainier)

Here are a few more stattions to compare:

BBO crater lake

VFP Mount Hood

ASR Mount Adams

CDF MNst. St. Helen's

HSR Helen's again

FMW - Mt. Rainier

Here is a Linkto the web site with all the seismos.

They are not big signatures, but the fact that they show up along the whole just makes me wonder why.

Any ideas? I know there was a 5.3 at 1523 up in alaska, but I don't think it would take that long to get here, and I don't believe it would register here. BUT...I am in no way an expert so maybe someone that understands it better can chime in.

On another note, I was talking about rainbows around here a few days ago. Well, night before last we had an incredible rainbow right behind my house. Thought I would share it with you...we live in a beautiful place!

posted on Mar, 23 2010 @ 05:17 PM
Possible EQ clouds? Hard to get the idea from one pic, but here it is:

Thoughts from anyone?

I'm really curious to get some opnions!

posted on Mar, 24 2010 @ 10:41 AM
Nice pictures and they do kind of look like earthquake clouds, lets hope not though because I woke up this morning and the last thing I remember in my dream is equake showing a 5.9 in castle rock. Sadly I'm not much of a pyschic and have never had a dream come true that I can remember.

Nice picture clarity though, we should get a nice beautiful day again today.
