The latest from

Very Strong earthquake - Central Italy - at least 59 dead, over 100 expected unfortunately

posted on Aug, 24 2016 @ 10:10 AM
As I woke, still stupid with sleep, my radio told me what I already knew. Italy was in bad shape.

I turned on the shower, and as I stepped inside, I only hear "another major earthquake", and the water hits my head and I loose my ability to hear the name of the location. So, I rush to the lists, and see Burma.

My spidey earthquake senses tingling. There was a small one the other day in Burma. Anything in this area makes me remember Nepal. The point is not a coastal zone. Italy was not coastal. My Canada even had an earthquake. Along with a 6 in Indonesia, we have a small clustering. Even small ones along the Mississippi.

Trust me. I'm not saying to is a major event with obvious connections. No. No, this is just not exactly the "usual suspects" of quakes. I didn't even want to mention because I have no idea what that means exactly. The reason I look at the graphs and maps every day is to have a basic idea of what's kinda normal. As we know from watching some areas are regular, and other areas are not. I'm just saying, that in the last 24 hours, things haven't been exactly quiet, or the usual.

I guess the local Italian seismologists are off the hook on this one
looking at the data 24 days prior, there wasn't the same amount of "foreshocks" as L'Aquilla, if any at all in the immediate mainshock area.



L'Aquilla Foreshocks 30 days prior

Might be a stupid question but

I noticed there are a lot of after shocks from the Italy quake but often larger quakes such as the one in Burma have none.

Is that because there were no after shocks in Burma or is it because there isn't the equipment to measure the smaller quakes there?

Burma doesn't even have a seismology dept that I know of
the nearest option is from Thailand their neighbour to the east

showing one aftershock at this stage a 3.9, which you won't see on USGS or the others because its too small.

I thought the headlines were bad. Then of course, being that we live in the future, there was drone footage of the destruction of Italy.

Within the first few seconds, I said, " Holy Fudge(being polite)" seeing the first roof pancaked onto the ground. The rest, is the same bad vision, over and over, like a nightmare.

Let's not forget Burma. They lost heritage, culture, and lives.

I hate studying these things. I want to swear so bad. The bigger ones that occur and that hurt no one; they, are a curiosity. The ones that destroy and kill, like Haiti, Banda Aceh, Japan, and these, I do the basic math, and then I curse the fact that we are not learning fast enough.

I know every inch of Italy is covered from one end to the other with ancient history and the best of our architecture, but, let's not forget the risk. The insurance companies aren't forgetting the risk. Within the hour, I saw financial news about insurance and default, and all the rest of that mumbo jumbo talking about the numbers and the money. I was like, what the fudge. again. polite. Italy knows it is fraught with danger. The previous "killer" earthquake shook the country awake. I mean that. It was as if Italy forgot it's past and every time there is a disaster, they act as if it is a new thing. Italy is full of mountains, faults, and it has volcanoes. It's a risky place.

I often think of Pompeii. Before the disaster there were earthquakes. Italians, even way back then, learned to accept the risks and take earthquakes in stride. They incorporated the action of the earth into their myths, and into their personalities. I think that's why they are so volatile and demonstrative. Their country, and their gestures come alive with action. I say this with absolutely no disrespect or bigotry. As I have stated, I was worried about friends in Italy. I have studied them. I had to. They are almost half the bulk of classical history...

But, it's like they roll too easily with history. If they resisted more, they would be running around saving every historical building they could before it is too late. Reinforcement. Reinforcing bars everywhere. Big steel plates with steel rods pulling everything together, holding it up against the inevitable. That's the only thing to stop this sort of thing. They know it. We know it. But it's hard. It's takes tons of works, tons of engineering, and the stupid, and far too long, political fight that for some reason, needs to happen. Just shut up and do it. It's like stop signs or lights on bad roads. Every one knows what to do and the sooner it's done the better.

But I hate seeing the _ I hate using the word- the tragedy. The people die when buildings collapse. History is gone when buildings collapse. The suffering is the only thing. If we take the hard work, assess the risk, move quickly to address the risks, then we can stop the suffering and the effing loss

of friends
and places
we remember
i'm slipping into the beatles and poetry

it's just that loss sucks

I love you Italia.
If I was there, my hands would be bloody and dirty.

Italy is right now attempting to extort [""flexibility""] from the EU using the earthquake tragedy as a conduit to get more money for bailout and for criminal italian classified budget. Germany and France on the verge of hyperinflation and financial collapse. Replace Draghi with Jurgen Stark for a serious reliable financial policy.

Any quakes in Europe will be tragic, with high loss of life
Their houses are made of stone
Stone has no flexibility in an earthquake

You're so right. Just down the road in Turkey, when they get hit, it will even be worse than Italy. Any country in an earthquake zone, needs to see the pictures and the tragedy, and fix their houses and buildings before it's too late.

Let's turn from looking backward, to looking forward. Politicians love that word. There are places that are forward thinking, based, on their past, tragic, history. Mexico City for one. Mexico has tons of problems and corruption. But that's not stopping them from taking action and making their buildings sway and stay. They have some of the world's newest designs. Trump may not like Mexicans, but I have respect for their preparedness. They learned... Chile, I could go on about them as well; not the richest nation, but, they know how to be ready...

I thought this earthquake was interesting.

4.6 WSW of Kiska Volcano, Alaska

According to the stats there hasn't been any activity in this are since 1990.

Gotta go check out some other sources but that's what I have found as of now.

I am Canada's biggest critic. I am Canada's greatest patriot.

I just tried to find a video with the new lyrics for our National Anthem. We recently had a vote on the subject. I'll include news coverage of the vote, and a video with our old anthem. If you find a copy with the new words, then just substitute them as you listen to our song. You've never heard a more beautiful thing, and in an area, you feel it.

There's another about how handsome our Prime Minister is...

I should have stopped two videos ago, and now for William Shatner doing Oh Canada...

The reason for all the patriotism. It's because Canada had an earthquake.

4.5M up near Santa.

Oh yes CrappieKat. I noticed the ones at the tip of Alaska... Just noting, nothing more...

I just saw something on the Yellowstone webicorders and if shows up in Utah. Not sure where it is, nor the size, still getting used to the newer graphs which I hate because the are not multicolour. I think it makes them easier to read. Also, the front is cropped so much I can't see the beginning. Yeah, yeah, yeah, sang the Beatles, I could get other stuff and look and such.

But I'm lazy. Oh, new study. Apparently, marijuana causes rats to be lazy. What I'm concerned about most is the young rats who might emulate the lab rats and become hooked and lethargic.

I'm still looking for the info on what I'm seeing. I checked Cali, I think it's near Utah.

I showed up, 4.8 M Wyoming

This is in regards to earth displacement from the Italy quake. They will have more info coming out later in the week

So as I was searching for Wyoming threads saw someone talking about co2 levels around yellowstone and when i did a search found this article. Not sure about the validity of it so I was hoping you could enlighten the subject? If you dont mind.

Highly concentrated levels of CO2 at Yellowstone prompt fears of violent eruption RAISED levels of carbon dioxide at America’s famous Yellowstone Park has prompted fears that the deadly volcano beneath is on the verge of a catastrophic explosion.

I couldn't get the video to work. However, I don't need it.

Let's start by what we know. Yellowstone emits helium. It also emits lots of carbon dioxide. I don't like arguing about CO2 anymore. But this is not the same old argument.

First here's a paper that describes that carbon dioxide from the geysers helps Yellowstone's geysers erupt.

Then, we have bacteria. Lots of it in the acid waters. They love it and give of tons of CO2. In the summer, there are tons of people going into the park with cars, and we mouth breathers give off lots, and millions visit the park each year. Other sources, forest fires, peat bogs, the forest floor itself.

Yes, the faults, when active, (Yellowstone went back to sleep- it's at a very low level) but there would be no good way to figure out how much.

If here was enough carbon dioxide to suggest something bigger, the dense carbon air would hug the ground, fill valleys, and then suffocate any animals that were shelter there. Lake Nyos in Africa killed entire villages when carbon dioxide from the volcano migrated its way out of the lake and down to the villages in the valley.

So, if carbon dioxide was an indicator, then you'd need lots more to say the volcano is being more active. At the moment, Yellowstone is less active than normal.

I'm going to check the inflation levels. Last I checked, everything was flat.

Here's an explanation that shows Yellowstone is breathing. And when it inflates and deflates, it does allow gases to collect, move, and escape. So, there is releases of gases almost regularly.

And as for Yellowstone rising...

Norris has jumped back up. again. Last year it has a sudden uplift and then stopped. It's back up to lifting again. Curious. The rest of the part has stopped and some were arguing it was subsiding. It's not subsiding. It's start to rise slowly. So, that's not so curious. But Norris, that makes me wonder...

Thanks for the info....

Just checked and still no aftershocks for the 4.8 in Wyoming? Normal?

Also Eric I invite you to this thread and to help make sense of it?
