Ok ... lets throw this under the "I don't know what to think" area ... since I picked it up on Godlike Productions ... a truly difficult to fathom site with many pranksters ...

B.C. in 'window' of higher earthquake risk

Last Updated: Friday, February 2, 2007 | 9:05 AM PT
CBC News

Seismic scientists say there is a greater probability of a major earthquake on B.C.'s South Coast in the next week, following a series of minor quakes that have worked their way up from Washington.

But seismologist Gary Rogers of the Geological Survey of Canada added that despite the increased probability of a big quake, the chances are still very low.

He and other scientists at the Geological Survey were able to predict the series of tiny tremors which moved along the Cascadia fault line from Puget Sound to Vancouver Island in the past week, he said.

"It's the first time we've had an insight into a time behaviour, and in fact, quite a predictable time behaviour on a major fault, where we know major earthquakes occur.

"What's going on right now is that the bottom portion of that fault is failing, and every time that happens, we're adding an increment of stress to the top portion that will eventually fail in a large earthquake. So when that is most likely to fail is when we are adding this increment of stress."

He and his colleagues are predicting a phenomenon called Episodic Tremor and Slip, or ETS, noting that ETS events occur in the area about every 14 months.

Each episode adds stress to the Cascadia fault line, and that makes it more likely that a major earthquake will occur, Rogers said.

"We are now in a higher window, or higher probability, if you like, for a big subduction earthquake, and we will be in a higher window for the next week or so as this event plays out."

Rogers also noted that scientists are still a long way from accurately forecasting major earthquakes. But if the big one doesn't hit B.C. this time, he said the next window of high earthquake risk will occur around April 2008.

"Rogers also noted that scientists are still a long way from accurately forecasting major earthquakes."

That's the key part. There really is no way to predict earthquakes.

We don't even really know what the Earth is.

Cosmic ...

Exactly ... and most (present company excluded) do not want to know anything more than "there seems to be a rock solid crust beneath my feet" ... and hopefully, it does not move about and throw me to the ground, cause the Earth to open up, spew forth unpleasant stuff, shake and bake my home and workplace, fill the atmosphere with Sun Block, etc.

So ... as with almost any other subject that requires independent thought ... Global Warming and increased volcanic and Earth events do not exist until they appear on CNN.

Way to go citizens ...

Minor earthquake detected east of Rapid City
12:55 PM


RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) -- It was minor, but an earthquake hit east of Rapid City this week.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the temblor measuring 3.1 on the Richter Scale registered at 3:36 a.m. Wednesday.

Its center was about 17 miles west of Wall and 13 miles east-southeast of New Underwood.

Alvis Lisenbee, geology professor at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City, said a quake that size would do little, if any, damage and that there have been no reports.

He said South Dakota typically gets an earthquake every two to three years, especially in the southern half of the state.

An estimated 11 earthquakes have hit the Black Hills in the last century.

White Island May Be Ready to Erupt

New Zealand - Geologists say the crater lake on White Island has jumped to a record temperature of 74degC and the water level has plunged 6m possibly signalling an eruption on the island. The drop in water level "may cause instability in the geothermal system that could result in minor eruptive activity," said GNS Science volcanic surveillance co-ordinator Brad Scott.

On Feb.14 there was a 5.3 quake off of the Oregon coast and I did not hear anything about this on the news {not even here??}. Very unusual... It showed up on the USGS site that morning but no written info of the event was given. Wasn't that the largest magnitude quake which has occurred in this area which has been having such frequent swarms over the last year?

Etoile ...

"On Feb.14 there was a 5.3 quake off of the Oregon coast"

Actually I thought I had seen several there in recent weeks.

Ok ... just checked USGS and discovered the other ones I had noticed were mostly WA and CA ... still that blue (yellow now) box looked so huge ... it worried me.

Oh I should have mentioned that I felt really weird immediately following the little quake. Kinda tingly/electric...but in a daze too. Ears were ringing...Also a strange feeling of expectation....that it might start again or something. It wasn't a big enough quake to frighten me by any means, but the effects were still interesting.

Earthquakes in southwest China affect 45,000 people
Beijing, March. 16 (PTI): About 45,000 people have been hit by the twin earthquakes which hit Shunchang county in southeast China recently, local officials said today.

The earthquakes, measuring 4.7 and 4.6 on the Richter Scale, that hit the county on Tuesday morning also caused over 1.55 million US dollars in losses.

No casualties were reported.

The quakes wrecked 5,969 homes and disrupted water supplies to 400 people. In addition, buildings and walls in 80 schools suffered cracks or damage.

The quakes also damaged 10 bridges, and a local reservoir reported leaking, head of the county government, Zhu Zhihua was quoted as saying by Xinhua news agency.

Residents whose homes were damaged were relocated to safe areas. The students who were evacuated after the quakes had returned to school

Report on Yellowstone

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0%2C2933%2C258732%2C00.html

Excerpts:
...These results could explain another surprise finding: The ground along the Teton fault an active fault running 40 miles north-south along the eastern base of the Teton Range in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming just south of Yellowstone moves in the opposite direction compared to what's been previously thought.

...What the researchers think is happening, on a short-term basis at least, is that the bulging Yellowstone hotspot north of the Tetons is pushing against the north edge of Jackson Hole and jamming it against the mountains.

...This motion, according to researchers, is also expected to produce bigger quakes, confusing the picture of how earthquakes occur in that area.

Well, I usually associate hawaii with Yellowstone, but have mentioned the loop which includes the cascades and Yellowstone. The whole system is opening up. A couple of years ago I mentioned about a vision I had of a very large cycle that we are now entering where many of the worlds volcanoes will open within a short time of each other. I think that many volcanoes become an "open system" during this cycle, then gradually close themselves off again. If I'm right, we could be boned.

There is a whole lot of them --
see usgs now

This is still ongoing -- maybe a bigger quake is to come ? . You quake watchers, is this normal after a mag 8 quake to get so many aftershocks ?

Move to higher ground Chr15t05 ...

The formatting is a bet screwed, but almost all these quakes are in the Solomons and are > mag 5 !

CRIKEY! I'm high enough and far enough inland... but I can't begin to imagine the level of devastation the reef would experience if we have a repeat of the 2004 event so close to home.

Aftershocks from a major earthquake are fairly normal- so long as they are only aftershocks of course.

It's late in the afternoon and IRIS seems to be down so I went on to RSOE Havaria and there seems to have been lots more activity today in the Solomon region... lots of big aftershocks. There also seems to have been a 5.7 quake today in Indonesia and it looks like there is volcanic activity there too but I'm a bit confused as to that. Havaria shows a flashing volcano erupting but links the date to the activity of 3/22???

Is there an "official" explanation for the seeming abundance of quakes that occur at exactly 10km depth?

I'm getting different depths for some other
The scary thing is that we should be getting less "aftershocks" now, lets hope for the frightened people these that it all calms done soon.

I think the islands are rather flat there, these are same folk who will loose their land to a small rise in sea level.

Re the 10km Depth ....

From http://neic.usgs.gov/neis/qed/

Depth
Distance below sea level in kilometers.
33 km is used as a default depth for earthquakes determined to be shallow, but whose depth is not satisfactorily determined by the data. Default depths of 5 or 10 km are usually used in mid-continental areas and on mid-ocean ridges since earthquakes in these areas are usually shallower than 33 km.

IRIS is down again this morning and when I clicked onto Havaria none of the icons came up on the maps. Havaria lists another tsunami hitting Milo in the Solomons yesterday but I have only heard about the tsunami at Gizo on 4/01 reported thus far. It seems that there must be too much activity going on for IRIS and Havaria to post current events.

The activity in SOLOMON ISLANDS seems to have calmed down, or may be stuck and another large quake is building up.

There is new activity in the LOYALTY ISLANDS and this is close to Noumea and Port Vila, as well as being closer to the mid east coast of oz (the highest population density in oz)

Looks like the earth is quite again ... but I cannot help but feel like something big is about to happen again somewhere.

I have become a usgs and iris junkie -- don't know why, just a feeling .....

hope i am wrong (which is usually the case )

The heat here in Victoria is most unusual Zendor. April is 5 degrees above normal and it may not rain this month. You get sunburnt just walking around here in Bendigo.

Cosmic Seeker, how are your bees fairing? 'Coz Ed Dames said on the Art Bell program that the extra ultraviolet light due to the tattered ozone layer is essentially *blinding* the bees and causing them to starve and lose their way back to their hives.

Philippine volcano showers 11 villages with ash
Send by e-mail Save Print The unstable Bulusan volcano in the eastern Philippines spewed a column of ash into the air Saturday, showering 11 villages with ash, government scientists said.

Bulusan shot a four-kilometre (2.5-mile) plume of ash into the air, scattering particles for some six kilometres around the the 1,565-metre (5,133-feet) tall volcano, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said in a statement.

"Three days prior to the ash explosion, an increase in the daily number of volcanic earthquakes and moderate to voluminous smoke were noticed," Phivolcs said.

There were no reports of casualties or damage and no order for residents to evacuate, civil defence officials said.

Phivolcs warned villagers to stay out of a four-kilometre "permanent danger zone" around the volcano since the area was still at risk from sudden ash explosions.

Despite the ash explosion, Bulusan is still not yet in a dangerous state but the residents should be on alert for "life threatening volcanic flows."

Periodic ash emissions from Bulusan volcano have been recorded since October 2006. The volcano, located in Sorsogon province, 250 kilometres southeast of Manila, has erupted at least 15 times since 1886, most recently in 1995.

every day i check the iris map. after awhile you begin to see patterns. for a long time the ridge along the west coast of the americas was quiet. now, it's getting active.

and of course the japan, indonesia area is super active. now that the americas coast is having more, i wonder if the plates are building up pressure for a huge one.

Yes, Susi, I've been wondering the same thing. I've been watching IRIS closely for about a year and a half since the Seattle/Oregon coastline started having all the mini-swarms of quakes offshore. The energy seems to be shifting over lately and there have been more small quakes in the Atlantic also.

I just took a look at Stan Deyo's site Millenium Ark and he has posted an alert for possible heightened activity for the Oregon Coast from May 19 to 24.

Back in 1999 a psychic told be that Mt. Baker would set off a series of quakes which would bring Edgar Cayce's prophecies about The West Coast to fruition. Her projected time frame was wrong but you never know about such things. Looking back, we were all shocked when St. Helens erupted.

We have entered a time of change. Certain events stand out like signposts, like markers along the way, showing us in what direction we are headed. Some rare and unusual phenomena occurring now in nature suggest our very survival may well depend on whether we take better care of our earth.

I want to re-emphasize what I just said in, "Arctic Icecap Heating Up Twice As Fast As the Rest of the Earth":

"In my view, we still have some time left to turn the momentum away from destroying our planet and ourselves, but I feel the window of opportunity is closing." Certain events will serve as "markers" in a "countdown toward some point in time when it will be too late for humanity to stop the momentum."

I also wrote in "Arctic Icecap..." about Carlos Barrios, a priest of the Mayan people, whom I recently met at a conference in Sedona, AZ. Carlos says, "If we don't do anything to change our relations with our environment, with Mother Earth, she will take revenge..."

In New York City, back in 1991, I had the privilege of meeting a Native American, Sun Bear, who also had something to say about the earth taking revenge. In one of his books, Sun Bear described a Native American prophecy predicting the eruption of Mount Ranier.

Sun Bear was a Chippewa medicine man and founder of the Bear Tribe, located near Spokane, Washington. I am sorry to say he passed away several years ago. He was a soft-spoken, gentle and unassuming person. He had calmness about him and a quiet way of showing that he cared, and I never have forgotten my brief encounter with him.

In a book he co-authored (with Wabun Wind) and published in 1992, Black Dawn, Bright Day: Indian Prophecies for the Millennium that Reveal the Fate of the Earth, Sun Bear refers to one of the upcoming "markers" in time, one of the markers which I say will mark humanity's countdown to a point of no return. Sun Bear said:

"I live in the State of Washington. The Native people there have a prophecy that came to them a long time back. This prophecy said that there would come a time when the Little Sister would speak and the Grandfather would answer, and the land would be swept clean to the ocean.... The mountain we call the Little Sister is called Mt. St. Helens in the geography books. On May 18th of 1980, the Little Sister spoke and threw a cubic mile of mountain into the air, covering the whole Northwest, and eventually the globe, with volcanic ash."

According to Sun Bear, the "Grandfather" spoken of in the prophecy is Mount Ranier.

After the 1980 eruption, Mt. St. Helens did not "speak" again and Mount Ranier, of course, has not given any "answer"; but just recently, after a long period of silence, Mt. St. Helens, the Little Sister, did "speak" again. On November 7, 2004, in a short segment about Mt. St. Helens, CNN Headline News showed, "pictures of a glowing lava protrusion inside the crater. It's grown 330 feet in nine days", the news anchor said.

More important for this prediction, and to underscore the meaning of the times we have entered, is today's report about Mount Ranier from CNN.com (Nov. 10, 2004):

"Seattle, Washington (AP)-- Mount Ranier shook with a 3.2 magnitude earthquake.... The quake was centered one mile beneath the surface of Ranier's crater.... Sunday's quake occurred within a cluster of 17 to 18 shallow temblors over several hours."

(Note: to open this CNN.com report, click above on the title of this article--B.T.)

I have for many years pondered the Native American prophecy passed on to us by Sun Bear; and without going to my Gift of Vision to make this prediction, I have considered the news reports about the current activity of Mt. St. Helens and Mount Ranier.

I believe Mount Ranier, which has been dormant for 150 years, has again become active and will erupt this time with an enormously devastating force. The upcoming eruption of Mount Ranier will cause the land in the Seattle area to "be swept clean to the ocean."

This eruption will serve as another marker in time and space, and, as I said in "Arctic Icecap...", take "us a little closer to a point where we won't be able to reverse the trend."

We've heard of the loud booming sounds which have been reported around the USA in recent years as well as the sounds reportedly heard in Indonesia along with a bright flashing comet-like object seen in the sky prior to two of the big quakes in that area. The sounds may be evidence of the tectonic plates cracking and if electromagnetic energy is released we may be seeing it in the form of bright flashing light. I know that many speculated that a meteor may have hit prior to the Dec. 2004 Sumatra quake but it may have been caused by intense electromagnetic energy released 24 hours before the quake happened.

A very small quake 1.4 mag struck the seacoast of New Hampshire around 12:45am on 6/05/07. Many residents of the town of Portsmouth reported to police that they heard loud explosions during the shaking. Authorities are looking into whether it may have been underground methane.
