People, you really need to do a research on REAL earthquake clouds. The colours are nothing but iridescence caused by sunlight being refracted by ice crystals and wate droplets in clouds.
The colour has no bearing at all

You couldn't pay me all the money on the planet to live out west. Too many fault zones, firestrorms, sand storms, mudslides, and blizzards.
I perfer my Hurricanes hands down. Course then now we have the idiots of BP to deal with. Sighs.

Thank God for the voice of reason!!
Hey Oz, glad you could make it here. Please let the lesson begin, I learn all kinds of cool weather stuff from you.
Of course you are! Everytime he posts, he comes up with something new out of thin air.
Roll clouds, street clouds, hole punch clouds, chemical rainbows are perfectly natural.
I think he need a walk-a-bout to get his . on straight, and get it out of the backside of his employers.
There are three types of Earth Transient Clouds. All Earth Transient Clouds form within 10 to 15 seconds from a powerful earth transient within the crust. ETrC1 type is a long thin singular cloud (up to length of fault) - which could look like a 'snake' if viewed just after formation & prevailing winds alter. This type forms from a powerful transient in a fault where the torpedo like long cloud is parallel above the fault - runs along its length. ETrC2 type is a series of smaller torpedo clouds that are parallel to each other but are transverse to the fault (are 90 degrees to fault line). ETrC3 type is a complex pattern that comprises a mix of wavelets similar to interference pattern or 'Moire effect' due to refraction of geologic structure and transient genesis (nature of). Dissipation of cloud occurs from prevailing winds and atmospheric conditions.
