Hopefully not.

30 whales stranded on Bruny Island

A POD of about 30 pilot whales have become stranded on Bruny Island, south of the Tasmanian state capital Hobart, wildlife authorities say.

Department of Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Liz Wren told the Hobart Mercury newspaper that 12 of the whales were still alive with people on the beach trying to move them back into the water.

"Preliminary reports indicate around 30 whales have stranded with some believed to be still alive," a statement from the department said.


I would put myself on ``earthquake alert`` if I were in Australia...

Small earthquakes from time to time but there is no fault line going through Australia and in fact goes far around it and through Indonesia!

As tragic as this is, i can't agree with your suggestion.

Whale strandings are sadly very common on that stretch, and not definitely related to AN impending earthquake.

However, i would bet that events like these will be increasing, due to a general background aura of chaos.

The fish die offs in Cali are what i'm looking at, and also that other geologist prediction regarding the way the quakes started south, moved north, and should now likely head east, towards the US west coast.

In SA we had a tremor last year that was felt over most metro areas and ever since then Adelaideans have been predicting a larger one to occur as they say we are overdue - hope we are wrong.

Don't underestimate the "powers to be".....they can do anything now and you'll see EQKs happen in countries that don't even have a fault line!!!!

Know what I'm saying?

I'm really scared about your prediction!

And the "powers to be"? that's a new one, I always thought it was the "powers THAT be"

It looks like The Bay of Plenty in New Zealand just had a magnitude 8 about 30 minutes ago... I'm still waiting on more detailed and better analysed information... I felt it in Wellington, that's like about 400km away.

Australia never have major earthquakes. The most we ever get is small 3 - 4.0's. Rarely any bigger.

So in other words, when Australia gets hit by 9+ Quakes. That's when everybody should begin freaking out about the world ending.

Unless these disasters aren't natural...

Ok, here's what we have from about an hour ago now:



I'm still waiting for details.


Editing to say that the time stamp is just from the last time the page was refreshed and not when the data came in. The earthquake was at about 12:45am.

It looks like a lot, but that's actually pretty usual. Except Chch is still getting a lot, but that's not surprising considering.

That 8 in BOP is a real worry, but I don't see any impact to networks, fibre or other. Everything I watch is still responding to pings, so I'm not sure what to make of the situation yet. I know that Geonet do take seemingly quite a long time to get detailed information loaded up on the page you linked to, so I'm here waiting.

Lets hope it's just a little nip and tuck aye.

I'm worried for both NZ and USA between March 18 (today) and March 22nd but I have a knot in my stomach for Sunday/Monday.
