Earthquakes on the rise
« on: November 25, 2015, 04:48:08 pm »

Two 7.6 Earthquakes today (25th Nov 2015) on the Peru Brazil boarder.  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
Earthquakes and volcanic activity for a long time have been steadily increasing with every now and again some big ones.  In my past life I worked as a geologist and have been watching the patterns for a while, time to start getting a little concerned.  There have been unusual quakes in Australia and other areas as well.

Yes ive noticed that increase. Might i suggest that we are going to see a whole lot more than just earthquakes on the disasters list. We live in a really weird time in the world, time to prep harder and help others to do the same.

I read recently that scientists think that there are increased numbers of earthquakes because of melting ice sheets involving massive weights of ice. Easy to understand when new huge dams trigger quakes & they are small in comparison to ice loss in places like Greenland & the Himalayan massif.

Earths core is mainly iron!
Earths magnetic field is changing
So maybe that is changing earths shape somewhat?
Enough to fire up more volcanoes!

Earthquakes (EQ) going ballistic and some seismologist indicating that it can have a disestablishing influence on the entire core.


Japan just got a +7 the previous ones yesterday a few +6 looks like pre-shocks now... The depth are very shallow 7-10km and directly below major cities. 
It is not just Japan, a number of other places across the glob hit as well - too many to list

The needle for EQ intensity is off the scale at +50

Ecuador just has a 7,8 - 7.4 EQ on land and very shallow depth - big stuff of biblical proportions coming soon.
Quote
(CNN)At least 28 people have died in a magnitude-7.8 earthquake that was centered near the coast of Ecuador, the country's vice president, Jorge Glas, told the nation Saturday night in a televised address.

Glas said a state of emergency was now in effect and added that preventive evacuations in coastal areas were underway because of possible tsunami risks.
In Guayaquil, Ecuador's most populous city, emergency personnel recovered one body from the scene of a bridge collapse, a police officer told reporters with Ecuadorian TV stations.

As I said earlier so much ice is melting the weight distribution is taking it's toll.

You do not have trillions of tonnes of ice melt with no consequences.

Drone footage of Japan mudslide and cracks after earthquake, and many experts saying CA in the US over due for a big one.

Another earthquake off Vanuatu.

Better leave Newcastle or other suspect earthquake zones in Aust.

Could well be the trigger for economic collapse.

Yeah 7 in Vanuatu 30km depth, Very unusual on land, there and very shallow!!
Mw 6.6 NORTHERN EAST PACIFIC RISE, 10km very shallow

I was not expecting another round of of big EQ so soon...

As to Newcastle, it is like the Japanese say, "it is not the EQ that kills people but the buildings"  Location is everything. For example if you are driving on a bridge and it pops - you are in trouble.  Along the Hunter river it is so flat if a Tsunami came through - serious effort would be needed to get to higher ground.

All very true OzHippy & we can expect more earthquakes as Greenland ice sheet keeps melting changing weight distribution on earth's plates.

During warmer weather Iceland loses a gigatonne of ice per day which amounts to about one cubic kilometre or one billion tonnes of water.

It has started early this year. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Very interesting.  Have been following much the same subject in other media.  I'm old and lived in QLD all my life and hadn't experienced any earthquakes every in my life until last year.  When I sat through 4.  I was so over it after that many.  I mean why all of a sudden?  But we're all calm again now.....
