Currently the USGS reports 14 Mag 7 and 109 Mag 6 quakes for the year 2016. Both of these figures are below the level that I would consider above average. Not quite sure to what you refer when you say:

There are lot of things happening right before our eyes (Meteors,Fireballs Volcanic activity,Earthquakes in and outside unusual places)

All looks pretty normal or below normal to me.


I would not skip any DOOM article,video you see


Sorry to disappoint but I have every intention of skipping any such uninformed nonsense.

1400mm? well that would have been a sight to see if it had been daylight.


And you were observing from the air!!

That graph show a perfect pressure increase and snap back. Pressure building and building and then SNAP

1. I was refering to russia meteor that has been filmed 2 days ago and all the fireball reports. Some say the sightings are increasing year by year. I don't know if its true but i thought i'll mention it anyway.
You don't get bigger Earthquakes in italy and New zealand every year but this year it became a reality. Also 7+ Fukushima just a couple of weeks ago.

I'm trying to understand how significant some of the movement could be. I don't know for sure, nobody really does(or maybe few people do) and i don't predict the future. Many have theories that are a hit or miss. For example some will say that what you just mentioned about the amount of movement is not good and could mean there is a nasty pressure build up. Others will claim the opposite.

Often the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

Hi Muzzy. Ignore the negative signs on the graph. Those are showing that overall, since the installation of the gps station, the movement has been Westerly....opposite of the axis label.
Your top graph shows 50mm of westward movement before the big spike (earthquake). Then the land slipped 40-45 mm back to the east, (in the positive direction on the axis).

Terrifying simulation shows how the Pacific Northwest could be decimated by a megaquake caused by the Cascadia fault

Almost 100,000 people along the U.S. Pacific Northwest coastline are living in the path of a potentially deadly tsunami similar to the one that hit Japan four years ago.

But researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey, University of Colorado Boulder, and California State University, Sacramento found that 77 percent of those communities in California, Oregon and Washington probably would have the necessary 15 to 25 minutes to reach higher ground and escape the monster waves. Their odds improve with tsunami education, institution of evacuation drills and a speedy response.

When the next very big earthquake hits, the northwest edge of the continent, from California to Canada and the continental shelf to the Cascades, will drop by as much as six feet and rebound thirty to a hundred feet to the west—losing, within minutes, all the elevation and compression it has gained over centuries. Some of that shift will take place beneath the ocean, displacing a colossal quantity of seawater.

And so on.

Well if I was living in that area, I might be just reminding myself of escape routes and making sure my BOB is stocked properly.

It's OK I do understand what you are saying but you must also bear in mind that earthquakes have really only been studied in less than the last second of the planet's existence which does make it a very imprecise science I grant you.

Having said that I still don't personally think that the current state of affairs in the world is anything out of the ordinary, at least as far as geophysics are concerned. That is of course just my opinion and that is all.

If the Cascadia fault produces a mag 9, which it will, then I think the Daily Mail figures are way too low for casualties and take no account of the number of nuclear power stations that may be destroyed either, with attendant problems. Nor is any account taken of the fact that it could trigger volcanoes (multiple) including possibly Yellowstone or the one further south.

When? The scientists says 15% chance in the next 150 years. I have said for a long time that should be 60% chance in the next 15 to 30 years. I kind of expect to see this event in my lifetime and I am approaching 69.

None of that however is the scaremongering of doom porn sites, just statements of calculated possibility. I am not a scientist so I am probably wrong. Time alone will tell but the 6.5 at the southern end may be an indicator and a southern 8.5, which happens more than one in 600 years, is equally as devastating in some respects and is a possibility.
 


ETA the 8+ ones are not in the area of the 6.5 by the way.

 


PS Of course the PTB may put paid to life on this planet long before any Mag 9 does the way things are going at present.

Tsunami Warning out for the SW Pacific, gotta feel for the folks in Tuvalu, no high ground there.
One day a wave is going to come in and wash them all away.

I live on the west coast. My town has tsunami evacuation signs downtown. I think we're actually fairly well protected. Anyways, I think it's going to be brutal when the big one happens. In japan, i feel there is more team work and people are more likely to stay calm. However, in the west, it's every person for themselves and freak out.

Thanks for that. I was leaning that way (pun intended)

I thought I had it backwards.
Sent an email off to Geonet on Tuesday asking how it works, they haven't replied yet.

In the 1700 tsunami the wave reached 5km inland.

How safe is safe?

Tsunami warning is off. BBCnews - Solomon Islands tsunami warning lifted after powerful 7.8 quake.

And they actually revised the magnitude up to 7.8 but that may change as they send a helicopter to scan the damage to the town near the epicenter.

There's a big change in elevation. Downtown is at sea level, but I'm way higher up.

Russia
Tuvalu
Pitcairn Island
and South Pole

That may be so, but it doesn't happen every time,
basically a big earthquake can happen any time
it is 4 days away from the Perigee (moon is closest), a month after the last 7.8 (Marlborough)
I think it is stretching it a little bit (pun intended) to say it is the rebound from that.

Whats with the puns eh?, that's 2 in 2 days

They are just coming out of the blue, not actually thought about until I typed it.
