I think you are right to be concerned. we may well be on the verge of the earth changes predicted by others where there is supposed to massive re-shaping of the land masses. take a look at scallions future maps. there have been a lot of quakes on the east coast where it is relatively quiet geologically. what you should do at this point is research the level of frequency and magnitude of earth quakes globally. you will see a sharp rise over the past 20 or so years. I'm a geographer/digital cartographer, well educated in earth sciences.

Don't worry because he always has to post a new blog to explain why the things he predicts do no come true. The Aliens changed their minds or the Cable ( thats what he calls tptb ) changed their minds or the aliens intercepted the cables tesla waves and yada yada yada. Some day through good research we may be able to predict when an EQ is going to occurr. Right now all we have are instincts. If you live in an area that is vulnerable you already know it and are probably prepared. Be safe BC, from the sunny shores of...you guessed it. Virginia!


him and his ilk ply their trade by manipulating the emotions of the people.

he can bet his house on the fact that people will say "oh gosh there's gonna be a 10.0 mega quake today!!", because almost none of his followers will say "really? let me look back over the history of that area to see if that likelyhood exists."

just like those doomsday prophesies. there have been millions over the years...but as you can see, the failure rate of those prophesies stands at 100%.

The Virginia quake was only 5.9 and we are still getting after shocks. 2.0 just last Weds. Small but still occurring.

Do you think that the US Navy made that map of the future for fun? Its shows Utah and Nevada gone. How about the earthquakes going through the roof and the volcanic eruptions or the bird, fish, and bee deaths? How about the earthquakes going around the ring of fire 188 days apart? I feel that something big is coming soon.

She hasn't looked into this much, but just from the information you provided she said nothing to see here, move along.


With all due deference to your wife and her geological knowledge the statement you posted seems to me to be at odds with itself.


She hasn't looked into this much


nothing to see here


Just so the we may rest assured in our beds that there is absolutely no need for concern could you just detail which area of geology your wife is employed in?

I don't think it is possible to make such a spot judgement, geologist or not, without looking into it much.

Right on, I'm sure she knows quite a bit, I mean it looks like she did a lot of investigation for just this thread alone, I haven't seen any of her other threads.
I just feel whenever I see a thread similar to this one (predicting or warning of some upcoming event based on whatever), guess what...like 99.9% of the time nothing comes of it.
It's like when Nostradamus types make vague predictions, and then something happens and they are like "I predicted that!!!!"
It is good to be warned of such events though, had I not stumbled on this thread today I wouldn't have even known of this earthquake.
But when the USGS or some other really smart guy/gal with credentials tells me there is going to be a big earthquake, then I'll be scared. (in-before "well you wouldn't ever be aware of such an event because TPTB would never let that info out", that's a whole other discussion lol).
Also, as I understand it, earthquakes are kinda hard to predict.
But yes, thank you WC for bringing me some new info.

I said with the information given she didn't think it was cause for alarm. And no, she wouldn't even want to spend her precious Saturday morning looking into it further as she is definitely not an ATS type of person and "puts up" with my conspiracies haha!

She has a BS in Geology and an MS in Environmental Geology. So no, not with a focus on Seismology, but as anyone who has been through school knows that you do get a few months to a years worth dabbling in everything that has to do with your given field of study, so that would include Hydrology, Seismology, Volcanology, etc etc...you get the point.

So she isn't an expert on the subject, neither am I (and dare I say WC isn't either) but she's my wife, I gotta listen to her
!

yes that's true. but they also have war plans for if Aretrea attacks the United States. it is a Good Thing to have a plan, and while it's not entirely out of the question, but the probablity of it actually happening are quite low.

And there you speak the truth!


Yes I appreciate what you are saying about what I would call 'modern' learning systems. People do not specialise so much these days.

You will have to get her involved on Quake Watch. We need geologists and that thread is not exactly conspiratorial!

I'll try to, and I will definitely be monitoring the page you mentioned now that we moved to the West coast. I did start a small earthquake prep supply to just grab-n-go in the event we have to leave our apartment. I reeeeeeally hope we never get anything large in our area, but chances are slim, it's California, after all.

i googled this Boylan fellow, and he is glad to inform us that the earthquakes there were seshuled "are being blocked by the Cabal's deploying its earthquake-engineering devices to prevent releases of those pent-up seismic forces on Sept. 4, 5, 6, and 7."

priceless.

I have been watching seismic activity for a very long time now using USGS and RSOE websites.

The RSOE website is "realtime" on all events it tracks. Over the past 2 years I have seen quakes increase, not only in magnitude but in frequency around the globe, and particularly in the Pacific Rim (pacific plate area). Where there were 2-4 magnitude quakes, there are now 4-6 magnitude quakes and so on.

The problem is caused either by the rotation of the earth speeding up / slowing down or by something much much bigger lurking in our solar system that would have magnetic effects upon the earth. It could possibly be both. We just don't really know for sure and at this point, its speculation and conjecture, even though there is clearly some scientific and historical proof to support both possibilities.

It's my understanding that the deeper the earthquake is, the more time the waves have to spread out. Thus being felt in a much larger area, and shallow earthquakes tend to be felt more violently, but much closer to the epicenter. Correct me if I'm wrong, as I don't know much about earthquakes.


I am a newby when it comes to quake experience. I live in VA and felt the quake on Aug 23. The news was saying that this quake was so widely felt (as far north as Canada, as far west as Chicago and as far south as Georgia) because it was shallow. So it seems you have that backwards. The deeper the quake the smaller the area feeling it. Shallow quakes are felt over larger areas.

West coast,
I love your threads and your well thought out hypotheses.

Does this quake tie into your theory of the Cascadia fault extending into the Sierra Nevada and beyond?

What about the theory of the magma chambers being bigger than originally thought? (I believe you were the author on the thread that tied all our volcanoes and Yellowstone together.)

I value you and other ATS members experience with the seismographs and geology. Since there is a possibility that this quake may be a fore shock to a bigger one (since it seems to be our turn), how likely would one of our volcanoes erupt during a mega quake?
Living in Tacoma, I'm especially concerned with Mt. Rainier.

that's all very true and i'm in agreement with you in all but one area.

what has been occurring in the past 2 years in terms of geology is almost like saying what happened in my life in the past 5 minutes is going to be life altering.

now while things do occur, to me and others, within the last 5 minutes can be life altering...the probablity of such an occurance are rather low.

now i'm not an educated person by any stretch of the imagination, but i would suspect there is a mathmatical equation floating around somewhere on the interwebs that will tell you exactly what those odds are.

i'm not gonna look it up myself because after 46 years of walking this wonderful planet, my common sense tells me the likelyhood of what has happened in the last 2 years of geological history has about a 1% chance of effecting the longterm stability of earth.

but that's just me.

lol...do you really need to be told? i'm thinking a smart person like yourself can figure out exactly what he has a Doctorate in...

I live in Vancouver, and did feel the earthquake yesterday.

Anyone who has been observing earthquakes, would notice that there has been many large earthquakes in the weatern pacific, and two large 9+ earthquakes, sumatra indonesia, and Japan most recently. As the oacific plate moves eastward, the Asian plate is submerging into the ocean (Japan will no longer exist millions of years down the road) and the pacific plate is submerging under the North American plate (hence the large coastal mountains). As logic dictates, as movement occurs in Asia, movement also must occur in North America. There has been much more movement in Asia then in North America recently...

The "Big One" will happen. However, the window for this occasion is not measured in days, weeks, or even months, its in years, even centuries. All you can do is prepare, and then go live your life.

Prepare an earthquake kit. Have some extra food and water. Know how to turn off your gas line. Prepare as best you can. "The Big One" is like death, its inevitable. So prepare as best you can, then go live your life without worry.

i'm suspecting that The Big One will occur after a long absence of earthquakes. earthquakes release pressure. using California as an example...should California go for an extended amount of time without any earthquakes, that'll be the time to pack up and head east.

either that or start buying up land along the fault line. chances are that once land locked piece of barren desert will become beach front property and you will be very rich.
