An even better question. Why the hype? If this is normal, and by other posts it certainly seems to be, then why the hype? I suppose it's to get people like me to think about why there's more earthquakes when there's a war on.

I'm actually kinda worried. All of these earth quakes are hitting every but Alaska. And I know we are due for one and I know California is also due for one, Though they got I hink a 7.2(?) a few days ago.


The 7.2 was in Mexico.

Coincidentally there was a 4.something further north in Cali.

So I believe that was two simultaneous quakes.

I just got home and turned on CNN and heard about the earthquake. Interestingly, this is what I heard (paraphrasing):

Wolf Blitzer: The earthquake in Haiti, Southern California, Indonesia -- People are saying these are just coincidences, but I'm not buying it.
Jack Cafferty: I don't know, maybe somebody is trying to tell us something?

Why would they said this? Is there something they know that we don't? This aired between 3:40 and 3:50 PST, so if anybody can find it, record it, and upload it to YouTube or elsewhere, that would be great.

It isn't hype. A 7.8 earthquake is a big deal. Put in the same location of the 2004 tsunami and it becomes a really big deal.

ah ok I thought it was in the southern part of California.

Why would they say that?
Because they are idiots.

That's a good point, I should have realized it was in the same place.

What do you think the odds of a Tsunami forming?

That would just be devastating.

Earthquakes of 7.0 and greater since 1900.


This is number 6 for 2010.

[edit on 4/6/2010 by Phage]


So 1944 was the worst with 41 quakes over 7.0

Thank you for the chart. It helps put things into perspective. I appreciate your efforts.

I been wondering, since we been seeming to get all these earthquakes lately, do you think its global warming?

Another line.

Calling one an idiot is itself idiotic. News anchors may not think much, but if you watch the entire clip in context with the rest of the broadcast, it seems really out of place. I hope somebody can find it and upload it.

How is it possible that slight differences in atmospheric temperature could have any bearing on the geological activity of the inner Earth?

I just do not see any connections there.

Care to share what you felt connected the two?

EVALUATION

A DESTRUCTIVE WIDESPREAD TSUNAMI THREAT DOES NOT EXIST BASED ON
HISTORICAL EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI DATA.

HOWEVER - THERE IS A VERY SMALL POSSIBILITY OF A LOCAL TSUNAMI
THAT COULD AFFECT COASTS LOCATED USUALLY NO MORE THAN A HUNDRED
KILOMETERS FROM THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER. AUTHORITIES IN THE
REGION NEAR THE EPICENTER SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF THIS
POSSIBILITY.

That's what I'm asking. These earthquakes have been seriously powerful and appear to be increasing in frequency. Like the Earth is somehow more geologically active all of a sudden. Could it be that the Earth has periodic active and inactive seasons like the sun? Would this be an unreasonable question?


Seems like a very reasonable question to ask projectvxn .

I suppose we must also consider that this period of increased activity is coinciding with a period of human history with unprecedented access to world news.
24/7 virtually instantaneously and from a cornucopia of sources.
These additional factor may go a long way in heightening our sense of a departure from `normal` tectonic activity .

The news said there are around 17 world wide earthquakes that hit the 7 mark, but how many of those are in populated areas?

I won't lie, Just now here in the UK I just felt a jolt like something poking up on the ground. When that happens I know it is not from the UK but else where on the planet, I have looked at British BGS records to confirm my findings. I believe now that these minor movements are not from the UK but some where around the world.

I have felt wobbles and shifts for over a two years now since that UK earthquake.

So I have a question guys:

It's been over 50 minutes and THERE ARE NO AFTERSHOCKS!!!!

I find this extremely odd, and a bit disturbing. Hope there is nothing bigger to come.

Ahh, it appears that way but.

They want ratings. Ratings = $$$

By hyping things up, and spreading unfounded speculations on national TV, they can get their audience all freaked out.

By freaking your audience out like this, you can drive ratings UP.

EG : FoxNews

I think it's just a ploy for ratings and controversy.

I don't think Tsunamis are formed from Earthquakes themselves. I think they're made from underwater land/rock slides that happen by cause of the Earthquake.

Um yeah that is cause for concern.

Hopefully anything coming will be smaller than what we already saw.

Can anyone confirm there has been no aftershocks?

I guess I can go pull up the usgs site and figure it out myself, lol.

I posted this on the last page. Read the people without the avatar images too!

Reuters bulletin for 3 aftershocks. They are only 5.0, 4.9 and 5.1 magnitudes.
