Here are some photos I have taken this morning.... will get more uploaded at some stage soon.
Have been taken photos as I go from repair job to repair job in the family business.

i will add it to my list of threads to watch
not everyday that a quake hits your own country
new zealand is lucky for the time of occourence

uummm - And? - You hang on his word? - This subject is highly debatable!! We all have our own opinions - what you have to say personaly about it?. Science is ever changing don't ya know.


There is opinion, of course... but then there is well thought out and logical explanation.

One kinda negates the other in the "I WIN" field.

i stand corrected 50 volcanos in the auckland region is correct
my post of 150 was wildly inacurate thanks for the correction

big quakes and now a plane crash...and tonight sounds like a bad storm is on the way. Is it coincidence or my memory tricking me but it seems storms are often associated with earthquakes. Perhaps maybe it's something to do with magnetic fields?

There are four main hazards from earthquakes: shaking, faulting, tsunamis, and ground failure. Liquefaction is how shaking causes ground failure. If you've played on the beach, you can see how it works: find a patch of wet sand down in the surf zone. It may be firm enough to walk on, but if you pat it a few times the saturated sand turns to muck. In earthquakes, the same thing occurs in buried layers of young sediment, down at the water table as deep as 10 or 20 meters

The nor'wester gales and storms were forecast - we knew they were coming. Yesterday (which was Friday here in NZ) we had a polar blast that blanketed us (near Darfield) with snow. Then the quake. I don't think they're related as the snow was also forecast.

The weather isn't being seen as unusual - just an annoyance considering we're rushing outside every hour ... latest jolt was an hour ago - mag 5.6 - and it was a really hefty jolt, too.

my theory is that magnetic feilds can act similar to the sun with vorticies of magnatism kinda like a magnetic tornado
and when one end breaks free it snaps back to earth like a rubber band and creates a shock wave along a fault untill it finds a slip point

when the soil shakes from a earthquake it liqafies and turns into a dense liquid like state and heavey sinks and light "floats"

My prayers goes to residents of Christchurch.

4.5mag just happened in Northwest Terroities. That's unheard of quake in north Canada.

Looks like people are okay down there in CHCH, you guys should move up here to Waikato in the North Island of NZ no earthquakes here and plenty of farmland to get off the grid and start becoming self sustainable.

Could it be HAARP? or could mother earth be getting itchy and starting to get peed off with the ongoing stealing of natural resource aquisition by the corporations especially down in the oil fields south of CHCH?.

Either way people need to prepare for upcoming events like this, as we head further into the galactic superwave these occurances will become more frequent.

I say get off the grid people take your money out of the bank and buy food, water and resources. Move in with family or friends and stock up.

The next earthquake could be the economic global meltdown one coming towards the end of the year as predicted by Gerald Celente.

Oneness All.

interesting theory, not heard that one before. Magnetic flux lines will always travel through something other than air if they can, (as long as it can conduct flux). so maybe they are attracted to what you call a slip point because of metallic minerals that help it travel?

all I can say is all the best mate. I hope life returns to normal quickly for you. Possum socks will be needed me thinks

Interesting or do think that what happens on the sun happens on earth as in this picture



Which was taken this morning of the sun from www.spaceweather.com that coronal hole (dark black rift) looks exactly in the same place NZ in located on the earth. What do you think? related?

thats an awesome picture, but not sure what to look at, is it the darker area or the light patches?

It's the dark area to the right, coming down on a 45 degree angle sort of lol, interesting how it is located in the same place NZ is on the earth. hmmmm

well i do think the sun and earth have a simbiotic relationship and the earth is in the suns magnetic influence anything magnetic happening in the sun could be inducing effects on earth but i know of no corrilation i could point to but i like the way your thinking

yeah I see what you mean, although that would mean NZ would have to stretch into the tropics past the equator, (which would mean I might move back!) so following along your lines then maybe it's not related to the land mass so much as the fault lines (which run roughly along those lines)

there are minerals that can be compressed like quatz crystal that create a pizio electric effect that is they make energy as they are compressed this energy can be released quickly as a fault slips
some earth is a natural conductor of energy these two forces can be released at the same time during an eq but i dont think they cause the slip initially

the vortex is like a hurricane except instead of spiraling air you get spiraling magnetic lines of flux

I can't see why that couldn't be possible, as I don't know enough about flux lines myself. Perhaps they might be link with lay lines, as you would need some sort of energy to create the spirals, and lay lines can certainly be powerful. (theres several up where I used to live that when crossed will almost take you breath away if your not prepared for them) or do you think it's part of the earths magnetic field and it's like eddy currents (like when you look at a river you can see sometimes the current will actually travel in the opposite direction to the river creating wee whorls and eddies etc)

here is a visual from NASA




magnetic feild lines can create eddy currents
they do callapse or snap as they shift around
this process can happen slowly or very fast
