This is my first reply here so please go easy on me
I have read most of the posts here in regard to volcanic activity in Chrischurch etc. The way I see it and I am not skilled in this area, but do
take a keen interest in earth quakes and volcanic eruptions and the like.
I think if there was any chance the two old volcanic sites near Christchurch coming alive the people in the know with the right gear would of seen
patterns leading to this.
I know some have said in past posts that it is unlikely to happen but if ever it did there would be notice of it happening as there are warning
signs. I live in the North Island in the middle of volcanic zone, we have small to meduim quakes on a regular basis, the big ones thankfully are not
It seems to be a very fine line between people voicing concerns to getting the general public staying awake at night with fear mongering. I think
people mostly are on the right track with their concerns and with people in any area of the world with volcanic activity if they see something out of
the ordinary they need to contact the right people to study it so it can be found out if a threat or not. Going to the news or radio is the wrong way
As for the North Island of NZ, I do believe we all will be told if such activity is happening again, which it will as this is the nature of our
country, it is just harder to say when and where the quakes will be.
I feel there are many people on the right track with learning this, and I wish they could all work together instead of some experts rubbishing what
some people are finding. Not everyone who is studying earthequakes will be right, but with all the information that people have around the world who
are studying them, professional or not, each bit of information just may go together like a jig saw. I feel there the are warning signs for
earthquakes, like a red sky at night mostly means fine or red in the morning is rain. There are many types of warning signs with nature that people
know, it is just finding these warning signs that will help let people know in time.
If people read this and it makes you think then at that is the start, can you find the next peice of the jig saw.....I am looking,
if you read my first post and not got bored, I thank you and hope I can add more in time
