If for example its epicenter
was on land, it could not cause a tsunami, even if it had an even higher magnitude. So the fact
that both Greece and Italy weren't hit by a tsunami, does not by itself mean the EQ didn't happen.


Ok, I'll give you that one - even though I don't agree - but I'll still go back to the fact that I didn't feel a thing and NOTHING was reported here on the news. I'm sorry but there is no way I'll believe that huge of a quake hit not only 200-250 miles from here and I didn't feel it - Sorry, that's just not a possibility. Thanks though!

Peace and Prayers to you and yours living in Greece! Tough times, tough times.
Take care.

Well why didn't you just say so before?!!

Who knows what they are using Libya as testing ground for this time, ok that I can kind of see. Sounds almost like an EMP or could also be some secret jamming device, HAARP? lol I don't buy into ALL of the conspiracies, but....when it comes to the U.S., this seems to be how we get to test some of our super-secret weapons.

I'm open.

Maybe they displayed the 8.4 a little to early...know what I mean?


I hadn't even thought about that! Things that make you go Hmmmm.....

well, who's to say that they haven't been able to further refine their technology? or perhaps other known/reported instances were more in the vein of calibrations and tests, and this was perhaps a true application of the technology.

bombs don't seem likely to me because of the positioning of the quake's epicentre (at sea). unless the instrument was basically sitting at the surface of the ocean and was bombed and still managed to broadcast its reading, it doesn't seem plausible that an airstrike could have triggered the anomaly. not to mention that the instrument was able to note that the quake had a certain level of depth (30 km it said i think?).

edit: though, the early reading thing makes sense in a lot of ways. however, it seems odd -- not so odd considering the "coincidences" most people take for granted in the world stage -- that there would be some readings of the quake, and that they would come from Romania of all places...

One of the comments on Youtube


HUGE waves have swamped dozens of hotel rooms and damaged sea walls at tourist resorts in Fiji. Police said there were no reports of casualties. The waves hit the Coral Coast, Fiji's main tourist destination, this morning, dumping logs and debris, police said. They said some tourists at the Tambua Sands resort had to move to higher ground after water entered their rooms and 30 rooms were swamped at the Shangri-La resort. this happen this morning? Love Scott (BUG)

i do have to reiterate that my family in tunisia reported absolutely no disturbance whatsoever. as you can see from the pictures, the epicentre is right next to tunisia, and my fam and acquaintances there live directly next to that coast line.

edit: also, fiji is actually nowhere near libya lol

I don't believe that Libya has even changes for 8+ magnitude earthquake. That strong earthquakes happen only near plate boundaries. Even though Mediterrean has plate boundary, there is not much energy stored.

But there is time-bomb ticking under Greece, Santorini, almost super-volcano. But it should be sleeping, but sometime in future it could blow up again.

12 pages and 52 flags on nothing but absolute speculation, one handed claps for all of you very nice. Have read through most of the pages and have tried to piss in the corner of this circle over and over again but just couldn't find an edge to gain some traction. But hey next page an even bakers dozen keep up the good work....

I'll concede the weirdness of this whole thing. Something happened. There's definitely a black out over this "event". I guess all we can do now is wait for the official report, so that we can debunk it

just a coincident?
4.9 in the sea Crete, Greece
5.8 western Turkey
and a 4.8 all about 17 hours ago.

some thing is funny about this?

(My problem is how can the earthqake in Libya generate waves in Fiji?)


Simple answer. They CANNOT!!!

1, There was no 8.9 EQ in Libya.
2, There was no tsunami caused by teh non existent EQ in Libya.
3, Any non existent waves caused by the non existent EQ in Libya, could not affect the Pacific
4, Why is this thread still running, and not moved to HOAX I do not know!!

Seriously peoples' knowledge of BASIC world geography is shockingly poor. Maybe these are the same people who would rather believe that they slipped through a dimensional portal to a place where countries have moved, rather than deal with the reality that their geography is rubbish!

Maybe because it was an earth quake south of Fiji?
Fiji Earth Quake


Type: Earthquake 23 hours ago
Magnitude: 4.9
DateTime: Thursday May 19 2011, 15:37:56 UTC
Region: south of the Fiji Islands
Depth: 508.5 km

I don't think that's it. If it was a nuke word would have gotten out by now. Neighboring nations and Southern Europe would have detected that and the media would have had a field day with the fear mongering.

Just a big thread full of nothing... not sure why so many flags

FWIW the largest siesmo reading EVER for a nuclear blast was a 7.6, and that was already 1.9km into the ground, A Nuclear blast in Libya (ground level or air balst) wouldn't even show as a Mag 4



Date/Time: 1973/10/27 6:59:57.4
Lat: 70.78 Long: 54.18
Region: Novaya Zemlya, Russia
Mw: n/a Ms: 7.6 Mb: 6.98 ML: n/a
Depth: 1.9 km
Deaths: n/a , Injuries: n/a
Tsunami: n/a
Source: noaa
This event was an Underground USSR Thermonuclear Weapons Test Explosion at a shaft depth of -1900m and a estimated yeild of 4000kt.


I'm not arguing brother, I'm just asking. If what you say is true, what about the numbers quoted in this post I made earlier? Would you mind going to the site I linked and looking at those numbers for nuclear yield vs EQ magnitude? Like I said, I'm not a mathematician so I have no idea if those numbers are right or not. A little clarification would be great.

Thx.

They wouldn't detect any radiation if the blast was a result of a bunker buster or a nuclear torpedo or depth charge. Again, just sayin'.

The details of the quake were on the ESMC website: An 8.4 EQ 300km southwest of Tripoli. The data was also there on the National Institute of Earth Physics in Romania - an 8.4 Earthquake was recorded. Why isn't this being covered by mainstream media? Why is there no info' on the USGS?


Because it's a false reading. If an 8.4 hit Libya, don't you think there would be mass reports of damaged buildings, people trapped in rubble, and tons of info streaming in on the internet of the damage? Not to mention every seismograph on Earth reading it and people reporting that?

Cripes: WHY DOES EVERYTHING HAVE TO BE A CONSPIRACY??? Just apply a teeny tiny bit of common sense.

Not to mention the hundreds of journalists and international media in the area covering the NATO war against Libya. If 1 of them felt anything, there'd at least be some info about it.

There was a huge airstrike and naval attack yesterday. The likelihood of a seismograph getting smacked with firepower is pretty good and would account for a false EQ reading.

Get a globe and look where Fiji is. Sighhhhhhhhhhhhh. These fear monger disinfo people Like Scott Bug and Dutchsinse; I swear, it's proving how gullible and lemming like groups of ignorant human beings can be.

Dude, if an Earthquake in the Mediterranean sea could create a Tsunami in Fiji, it would have flooded the entire coastline of the Earth and would have measured like a 15 on the Richter scale.

HIGHLY unlikely. What would be a point in nuking that country. It has no direct threat to the US or NATO countries. And would cause all sorts of world wide anger. Don't jump the gun or assume stuff like that.
