Web-Bot Project Says Giant Quake by Dec 15 -- Avoid New Madrid Fault
Posted December 2nd, 2008 by Agesilaus
As you can see from the above article if you search for it using Google that it is true they did forecast one to stike in the area of New Madrid.
Following last week's flurry of small tremors in southeastern Missouri and central Arkansas, the Web-Bot Project of internet-based predictive linguistics shifted attention to the Midwest's New Madrid fault line as likely locale for next big quake. Our timeline is approaching a seismic event of sufficient magnitude to cast its linguistic shadow fully 18 months into the past. If you're not familiar with the Web-Bot Project, which is credited with correctly predicting the Bande Ache tsunami and the 9-11 event, this link provides an introduction. It also will link you to a Nov 20 FEMA report focusing on the New Madrid fault.

An international survey of the coral reefs off Indonesia indicates that a series of huge earthquakes are likely to hit South Asia in the coming decades, packing destructive power similar to the magnitude 9.3 quake that triggered a devastating tsunami in Southeast Asia in Dec. 2004.
According to an article published in the latest issue of the weekly journal Science, a research team composed of scientists from Indonesia, Taiwan, and the United States studied seismic patterns over the past 700 years and hypothesized the existence of an "earthquake supercycle" every 200 years.
During the supercycle, a magnitude-8 quake would mark the beginning of a new cycle, one or more magnitude-8 quakes would follow, and a super quake of about magnitude 9 would end the cycle by consuming much of the tectonic energy accumulated over the past two centuries.
The magnitude-8.4 temblor of September 2007, they reported, is the "opening salvo" in the 30-year period of each supercycle of quakes in the region when seismic activity peaks.
The researchers suggested that a quake with a magnitude of between 7 to 8 will occur every six to 13 years, and a super quake of magnitude 9 will hit South Asia in about 30 years.
The study -- conducted by scientists from Indonesia, Taiwan, and the United States -- derived their conclusions from an analysis of dead corals off Sumatra's Mentawai Islands to get a better idea of how corals are affected by earthquakes, especially those of magnitude 7 or above.
The scientists explained that huge earthquakes in the past would lift the reefs by one meter or more above the sea's surface and cause the massive die-off of coral reefs.
These dead corals left behind, much to the team's surprise, mineral structures that explicitly recorded the time and scale of almost every large earthquake in the area over the past 700 years.
"Each incident triggered widespread coral deaths, but the long- lasting mineral structures built by the colonies enable scientists to estimate the dates of the massive quakes that caused those upheavals," said Aron J. Meltzner, a participant from the California Institute of Technology.
The earthquakes "recorded" in coral structures occurred in 1374, 1596, 1675, 1797, 1833 and 2007.
In the "coral records of earthquakes," the scientists discerned a pattern for the earthquakes in the region, namely the supercycle theory. They used the theory and the temblor of September 2007 to reach the conclusion that a new supercycle has already begun.
The Dec. 2004 earthquake was not considered in the study because its epicenter was located 150 kilometers northwest of the northern tip of Sumatra Island and had probably consumed much of the tectonic energy in its area.
The study's area of investigation was much farther south off the Sumatra coast and part of a different tectonic system, according to Shen Chuan-chou, a project member from National Taiwan University.
A separate study reported in the Dec. 4 Nature also suggested that the region's 2007 quake released only one-quarter of the energy that had accumulated since 1833, so the quakes in the region in the coming decades may be even larger than expected.
"If the supercycle theory proves true, the South Asian countries should stay alert for possible huge earthquakes and step up their efforts to establish the earthquake/tsunami early warning network, " Shen said.

Interesting. Did he say something about the San Andreas area?

despite your bots have a couple more days before their predictions can officially be called as bunks. how are you feeling at the moment?
are you still reasonably certain that there is something to the web-bot predictions?
