7.1-magnitude quake strikes off Indonesian island, tsunami warning issued


channel6newsonline.com

JAKARTA (BNO NEWS) -- A powerful earthquake struck off the Indonesian island of Java on early Monday morning, seismologists said, prompting a tsunami warning for some local regions.

The 7.1-magnitude earthquake at 3.06 a.m. local time (2006 GMT Sunday) was centered about 279 kilometers (173 miles) south-southwest of Tasikmalaya on Java. It struck about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) deep, making it a shallow earthquake, according to Indonesia's seismological agency.

Depending on how far out, this could cause some damage.

However, "Authorities in Indonesia immediately issued a tsunami warning for some coastal areas, while the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no threat of a Pacific-wide tsunami." Which is unlike we saw off the coast of Japan, thankfully.

Hopefully this isn't a pre-shock.

What in the world in going on?...

This is somewhat interesting. I was listening to a Coast to Coast from last week yesterday and Stan Deyo was being interviewed. As I remember, he said that be believed that based on the information that he looks at, he thought that there would probably be an earthquake in Indonesia, which would then be followed in the not too distant future by "the big one" in the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

We'll have to keep our eyes peeled and see what happens.

Someone just the other day displayed an illuminati card showing Indonesia having an earthquake. Sorry don't know who but if you do a search!

While this is rather interessting, I don't see this earthquake being seen as the BIG ONE that some are expecting to hit soon.

But...

I remember before the big Japan quake, there were some decent foreshocks going on before hand,

so definitely I will be keeping an eye out on all this.

Here I sit in that Cascadia Subduction Zone.... I hope it hits hard and fast.... I'M READY!!!!

Well not really! What choice do I have though? When it's my time to leave this existance for whatever is waiting for me on the other side what choice do I really have?

I'm not giving up or trying to find a hole to hide my head in but I;m just trying to be realistic to the possibality of a catyclismic event in my region. Do you think that the people living on the coat of Japan 5 weeks ago knew the chances of a tsunami? I'll bet they did and just kept on living life like always up to the end.

We have no way to controll a natural disaster of biblical perportions....
I just hope I have time to grab my kayak and ride the wave through the Pearly Gates!

Ok, I normally take predictions of any kind with a grain of salt. But is it possible that the human body and it's workings can detect changes with the Earth prior to an earthquake?

The day prior to the most recent NZ earthquake, the day before the Japan earthquake, and now just yesterday I have noticed something peculiar with myself. If it happens again I will post a thread just so there is record of it.

Again, I am not saying I can predict the future, so you will hear no "run for the hills" gibberish out of me. It's just a question I had regarding possible changes prior to an earthquake affecting the human body.

Of course. As I said, if it happens again I will post a thread. I just want to test my theory that this always happens the day before a large earthquke. And again, I am not claiming to be able to predict the future.

But it would be so cool if you in fact could! I'm rootin for ya!

Funny thing, I have a bug out kit, spare gas cash, and a plethera of other supplies to fly up to a higher elevation when and if something does in fact go down. The one thing I'm missing is a reliable Helicopter to sit perched on top of my house! Haha!
