4.2 Mag Quake only 14 km deep. Near Nuclear Power Plant (again)

Most unusual area to have a quake!

Unbelievable! They hadn't had a quake since... I don't know... 900 AD??? It is indeed a highly unusual area to suffer a quake, so they could be completely unprepared... Thankfully, it was a small one. Hope everyone is alright. Thanks for the heads up OP! S&F

Definitely not huge but at only 14km deep - I'd be surprised if there isn't any damage. Hope they're all ok.

Perhaps someone from there will come on and tell us about it.

Do you know of any damage - hope not. Yes very unusual to have a quake there.

Apparently this guy is saying that there's seismic tension breaking out all over the planet - could possibly lead to a huge quake soon.

Also Norway is currently suffering bad flooding which is disrupting transport.

Not sure what you mean by Dos attack - no good with computers, I just type on them. If you put it in kindergarten language I might understand but it does sound ominous. What does it suggest???

I live in The Netherlands, about 15 km from Rotterdam. I didn't get any shaking here. Where exactly is the epicenter?
Definitely a weird event, quakes are not really common here in the Low Lands.

Check out this link and click on the Netherlands Quake or check out the other link in my first post where you will perhaps recognize the place names.

im not EXACTLY sure what a DOS (denial of service) attack is but it is a common attack hackers use to deny users access to a webpage

www.abovetopsecret.com...

some people in that thread claimed they were getting a 503 error on ATS

Thanks for that - yes I did see a thread earlier about that error - Mmm strange!

Most probably a HAARP attack, although this was only a test i´d wager, to see if they can affect the area. Prepare for a big one which will rupture your floodbarriers and drown the country. I´d get out ASAP.

Quake 1992

In 1992 we had also a bigger 5.8 magnitude quake.

Oh, I am sorry, I did not know this (I was 3 years old), and I did not want to sound aggressive or ironic, I just meant that it is really unusual for you guys.

I live in Wassenaar (close to Den Haag) and work in Amsterdam, and i did not feel anything. Ill keep an open eye and ear and report anything i hear/see on the news, freinds and other sources.

Strange indeed though, i remember as a child being happy that i lived in Europe, beacuse we do not have any earthquakes, tornados or tidal waves, is all this about to change ???

Or just Haarp test, (well just and just).

Could also have something to do with Elenin if it is indeed more than a comet, as it is getting progressivly closer.

Im open to any explination, however it just happend is not accaptable for me, as there are no major fault lines in NL.

Any thoughts as to why?

Also from the Netherlands, Den Haag region. Haven't felt it either, since the epicenter was about 40km from Nijmegen (east of netherlands on the dutch/german border).

The depth of the quake was around 7km, but there haven't been any reports of damage.. Just concerned citizens calling the agencies.

Experts say these quakes happen every 10-20 years.. Last "big one" was in 1992 at roermod as linked in earlier posts.

Conclusion, nothing to worry about since it's nothing out of the ordinary at this time. Can't hurt to keep an eye out for more unusual events though! ;-)

I've found something on the news about the quake:

NOS.NL

Translated by Google:


The shock was felt at 21:03 in large parts of the country . The police received many calls from concerned citizens, especially from Gelderland, Utrecht, Limburg and North Brabant, but also from the vicinity of The Hague. KNMI had until midnight 4000 reports of people who had felt the quake. The quake had a magnitude of 4.5 on the Richter scale. This is the third most violent earthquake in the Netherlands in the past one hundred years.
Fault Line: The epicenter was in Xanten, Germany, just across the border at Nijmegen. There is a break in the earth's crust that according to KNMI once every ten to twenty years has caused an earthquake. The worst earthquake ever struck the Netherlands in 1992 near Roermond. Which had a magnitude of 5.8. There were no casualties, but the damage in the Netherlands amounted to 77 million euros.


I am not far from The Hague, but yesterday evening I didn't feel anything. Nothing to be worried in the end


Peace,

Hundroid

It gets some media attention here in Belgium as well: s ource
It's reported as a 4.6 Mag., the epicenter was in Nijmegen.
Apparently the quake was felt in Brussels and Namen, although we didn't notice anything here in the North.

Seriously, I've seen this one a few times now and even though some of the facts aren't either translated correctly or correct the theory is a different one...but could he be on the money?

That video is excellent - thank you! The guy sounds very genuine and I for one believe what he is saying - God help us all - this thing can only lead to one eventuality - extinction!!!!
