Maybe the Ark of The Covenant is acting up.

Why not? It's about as good as reason as any.

Did anyone else see that Documentary that it may be in Ethiopia?

This is what it looks like in IRIS right now...

Link...

Last two weeks of eq's all on the same day?


I don't know what that even means?

What are they trying to say?


It's all the latest data.. Notice how consistent the depths all are... All occurring in the area within the red rings..

Nice catch!

Not all sites are showing this.

This action is almost like the way Japan started. Hope it's doesn't end with the same results.

Apparently, 200miles long, 80 miles wide and already travelled 250km.

I have also been paying attention to these swarms of EQ's, definitely not normal. Furthermore, has anyone noticed the activity of super volcanoes this year? There are 8 super volcanoes that are showing signs of activity, including 3 in the USA alone. Any thoughts on this?


Here is a link to the super volcanoes list... hisz.rsoe.hu...

So this would be a eruption. Yes? Oh my. Another volcano. With all these eruptions, i think that it must only be a matter of time to a super volcano goes.

I have posted bits about the super volcs today. 4 supervolcs have been reported on EDIS over this week end alone. The only good thing is if a super Vei7/8 goes off, the whole world will be shaken out of their beds!

Glad I searched and found your post. As soon as I did my earthquake search this afternoon, I was wondering "Whiskey Tango Foxtot".

Yeah, the magnitude is high as compared to Puerto Rico last month.

Now I need to go back and read three pages of post.

Good to know I am not the only one to notice this!

if you zoom in on the map you can clearly see that these quakes are all too far apart to be related and also as far as i know there is no supervolcano near were these quakes are hitting AFRICA IS HUGE keep that in mind ..

No one said it was a super volcano. Just saying that with all these other volcanoes going off. Chances are a super volcano could go off as well.
quakes.globalincidentmap.com...
And yes there was two 5.7s in the same hour. Hmmm

True, Africa is a big continent, but these quakes are well-clustered. In fact, they do seem to be related, as they are at approximately the same depth (10 km) and they run perfectly down a segment of the west side of the Great Rift Valley.

This is the area where a new ocean is forming, and I must say... that would be something to see.

So the Chile volcano only spews its ash plume 9,000km across the Pacific o ground flights in NZ and Eastern Australia.....oh, and that's not a super volcano either!

However you might just be interested in this supervolcano IN ETHIOPIA!

FYI for anyone who is interested. I use this to track, free version linked into all USGS data:

Gives depths, etc...

Being that they are on the same Continent, I can agree.

But as they are in the same region and that it is not an area known for clusters...I would have to say that they are definitely related.

I would say that these are definitely related.

Check out the USGS map - not that widely spread at all.

USGS have just made comments on the EQ swarm,

  • These are type of typical earthquake that we would see in a continental rift zone
  • What we are seeing is normal faulting that we see when we have spreading centers."
  • This thing also tends to generate volcanic activity, given the fact that since you are opening the Earth's crust
  • A lot of the magma that is underneath the Earth's crust does actually have access to the surface
  • That process itself, the volcanism and the earthquakes, are related to the same rift zone
  • But the earthquakes that we are seeing over here are not directly related to the volcan
