We have seen a dramatic spike in global seismic activity that is unlike anything that we have seen in ages, and that is why what is going on at Yellowstone is so incredibly alarming. Geologists tell us that a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would have up to 2,000 times the power of the Mount St. Helens volcanic eruption of 1980, and approximately two-thirds of the country would immediately become uninhabitable. As you will see below, there are signs that something big is getting ready to happen at Yellowstone, and if it does erupt all of our lives will be permanently changed forever. Continue reading »
Why is the crust of the Earth shaking so violently all of a sudden? Over the past 48 hours, there have been five major earthquakes globally, and one prominent seismologist has declared that “catastrophic mega earthquakes” could be on the way. In fact, seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado has made headlines all over the world by warning that “current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude”. If his projections are accurate, our planet could be on the precipice of a wave of natural disasters unlike anything that any of us have ever experienced before.
Since the beginning of 2016, south Asia has been hit by an unusually high number of large earthquakes, and this has scientists groping for an explanation. The following comes from the Express… Continue reading »
Over the past 48 hours, our planet has been hit by literally dozens of earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater, and scientists are acknowledging that what is taking place is highly unusual. This strange shaking began toward the end of last week when the globe was struck by five major earthquakes over the space of just two days, and over the weekend the seismic activity just continued to escalate. Very early on Saturday, Japan’s southern island of Kyushu was hit by a magnitude 7.3 earthquake, and on Saturday night a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck off Ecuador’s Pacific coast. It was the worst earthquake that Ecuador had experienced since 1979, and it was followed by at least 163 aftershocks. Unfortunately, there are indications that what we have seen so far may be just the beginning. Continue reading »
The death toll from a powerful earthquake that shook Ecuador’s northwestern coast soared to 246 Sunday and hundreds more were wounded, the nation’s president said.
Ecuador was in a state of emergency Sunday after the magnitude-7.8 earthquake flattened buildings and ravaged towns Saturday just before 7 p.m. local time (8 p.m. ET). Continue reading »
Two large earthquakes have struck Japan over the past 2 days. Major damage has occurred, multiple people killed, and thousands injured according to main stream media reports.

Widespread destruction has been reported around the epicenter of the massive 7.8 quake that hit Ecuador coast on Saturday night. An alert about a possible tsunami wave has also been issued.
The streets of a southern Japanese city became blanketed in foam after a devastating earthquake, close to its epicenter in Kumamoto, leaving residents baffled by the phenomenon which the authorities, busy with the disaster’s aftermath, found no time to explain.
The froth appeared shortly after disastrous tremors from a 7.3 magnitude quake shook the city of Fukuoka on Friday. Twitter users posted photos of the snow-like foam sheet and wondered what caused it.

The unexplained phenomenon affected the downtown Tenjin and Imaizumi areas of Fukuoka, according to reports. Continue reading »
A day after yesterday’s “biggest quake since 2011’s tsunami,” at 1:25 local time, Japan was just struck with a massive aftershock in the form of a Magnitude 7.0 earthquake, which means it was roughly 10 times stronger than yesterday’s tremor:

Just over 5 years since the massively destructive 2011 Japanese earthquake which unleashed a tsunami and led to the Fukushima disaster, moments ago NHK reported that Japan’s Kumamoto region had been hit with another quake which had a Shindo shaking intensity of 7 and registered a magnitude of apprxoimately 6.4. “There was a ka-boom and the whole house violently shook sideways,” Takahiko Morita, a resident in Mashiki, a town at the epicenter, told a telephone interview with NHK TV.
– “Nuclear reactor fears after huge earthquake strikes Japan” — Plant operator “is further looking into any possible damage” — Quake measured “at highest possible level” on Japan’s intensity scale — Prime Minister: “We intend to do the utmost to grasp situation” — Official: “Extent of damage still unclear” (VIDEOS):
The Mirror, Apr 14, 2016 (emphasis added): Nuclear reactor fears after huge earthquake strikes Japan… Authorities raced to assess the damage to THREE nuclear power plants which sit just miles from the epicentre — A massive deadly earthquake that hit Japan left many fearing a Fukushima-like tragedy could happen after the epicentre rocked homes and building just miles from THREE nuclear reactors… experts immediately began checking the island’s nuclear reactors for any damage…
Kyodo, Apr 14, 2016: The quake at 9:26 p.m. registered a maximum 7 on the Japanese seismic scale in the town of Mashiki, Kumamoto Prefecture, the Japan Meteorological Agency said… no abnormalities have been detected at nuclear power plants in the area… An official from the weather agency warned that there may be aftershocks of around lower 6 on the Japanese scale in the coming week.

The public seismographs which monitor earthquakes in and around the Yellowstone super-volcano are presently OFFLINE, and the public is not presently able to see seismic activity there.
Being able to see what is taking place in and around Yellowstone is of great interest to many people because if there is a sudden flurry of earthquake activity, it COULD — but not necessarily — signal a pending eruption.
Since Yellowstone is the only “super volcano” on the North American continent, and is VERY geologically active, if an eruption were to actually take place, the western two-thirds of the United States would POTENTIALLY be hit with volcanic ash and a severe disruption of life.
So why are the public seismographs from the US Geological Survey (USGS) OFFLINE (to the public) today? No one is providing any answers.
Even more peculiar, the privately-funded seismographs from the University of Utah . . . are also OFFLINE (to the public) right now. No one is providing any explanation for this either.
After poking around to various folks involved in the University of Utah Seismic Center, one person at that facility “quietly” e-mailed us a single graphic image which gave us pause: Continue reading »
A 7.8 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Indonesia, killing an unconfirmed number of people. The country has issued a tsunami warning, the National Meteorological Agency reported.
The shallow quake led to multiple deaths, according to Indonesia’s search and rescue agency. Continue reading »
Full website post covering all points raised in this video:
The readings cannot be an “error” due to the fact that whatever was actually detected 5 days ago SPREAD OUT into the midwest – following prevailing wind currents.
How can “nothing” or an “error” then spread out over multiple days and new data sets from the GFS? Obviously something is being detected as Carbon Monoxide, and spreading out over multiple days.
Over the course of 5 days since the event occurred, the gas spread Eastward towards the midwest United States, following actual measured wind currents – proving a gas was indeed detected – proving the gas is moving with the prevailing surface winds.

There is a 63 percent chance another quake between magnitude 5 and 5.9 will strike Christchurch in the next year, after Sunday’s 5.7 quake increased the likelihood from 49 percent.
The quake – the largest in the city in four years – hit 15km east of the city at a depth of 15km at 1.13pm.
It hit with such force cliff faces crumbled, items fell off shelves and walls and liquefaction started bubbling. It shook the ground, and it shook people’s emotions – just eight days out from the five year anniversary of the February 22, 2011 quake which killed 185 people. Continue reading »
January 5-6, 2016 . North Korea has detonated a hydrogen bomb underground in the Eastern portion of the country, which simultaneously caused a large man made M5.2 earthquake across the region.
Here is the seismic wave signature per the IRIS system:
It is currently January 6th already in Asia where this occurred.
1/6/16 or 6/1/16…. too weird of a date for N. Korea to choose wouldn’t you say?
Of course that date was picked by North Korea to be a backwards upsidedown 911 of sorts. Of all the days to choose to do your Hydrogen bomb nuclear “test”… this cannot be an accidental date choice.
Have you noticed that seismic activity along the Ring of Fire appears to be dramatically increasing? According to Volcano Discovery, 39 volcanoes around the world have recently erupted, and 32 of them are associated with the Ring of Fire. This includes Mt. Popocatepetl which sits only about 50 miles away from Mexico City’s 18 million inhabitants. If you are not familiar with the Ring of Fire, it is an area roughly shaped like a horseshoe that runs along the outer perimeter of the Pacific Ocean. Approximately 90 percent of all earthquakes and approximately 75 percent of all volcanic eruptions occur along the Ring of Fire. Just within the last 24 hours, we have witnessed a 4.4, a 5.4 and a 5.7 earthquake in Alaska, a 6.8 earthquake in Chile and 20 earthquakes in Indonesia of at least magnitude 4.3. And as you will see below, this violent shaking along the Ring of Fire seems to continue a progression of major disasters that began back during the month of September.
For whatever reason, our planet suddenly seems to be waking up. Unfortunately, the west coast of the United States is one of the areas where this is being felt the most. The little city of San Ramon, California is about 45 miles east of San Francisco, and over the past several weeks it has experienced a record-breaking 583 earthquakes… Continue reading »
KABUL, Afghanistan — A deadly earthquake hit northern Afghanistan and Pakistan on Monday afternoon, registering a preliminary magnitude of 7.5 and causing heavy damage in one of the world’s most impoverished and war-torn regions.
At least 122 people were reported killed, with 100 or more of them in Pakistan, and that figure seemed likely to rise significantly, officials in both countries said. Continue reading »
There are Class 4 & 5 quakes virtually every ten minutes in Northern Chile. This is another world class major rupture in the Earth’s crust, this is this year’s Great Event. I think that Chile is very lucky that the rupture is “slowly” cracking the Earth with frequent comparatively modest activity rather than more dramatically breaking the crust in a Class 9 mega-event. Continue reading »
A powerful earthquake strikes off the coast of Chile. The quake, originally measured at 7.2, has reportedly been upgraded to 8.3.
It will strike, and it will be bigger than the 9.0 that struck Japan in 2011.
“Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast,” says Kenneth Murphy, who directs FEMA’s Region X, the division responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska
“The region will be unrecognizable …. That’s Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people.”
FEMA expects that nearly thirteen thousand people will die in the earthquake and ensuing tsunami. Another twenty-seven thousand will be injured. On top of that, the agency expects that “it will need to provide shelter for a million displaced people, and food and water for another two and a half million.”

Warning issued for a large earthquake to strike the West coast near San Francisco California (quote) “Any day now” comes from professionals:
New Yorker article calling for a M9.2 earthquake along the West coast in the near term future:
TV News ticker accidentally shows M9.0 “mega-quake” announcement for San Francisco California on live TV:
–Huge earthquake to devastate Pacific Northwest – Video (Ice Age Now, July 20, 2015):
Some of our viewers may see Seattle and Portland destroyed in their lifetimes, says reporter Shepard Smith.
If you or someone you know lives in or near that area, you will want to watch this.
We are positive this will happen, says Smith, reporting on Fox News. “Frankly, if I lived right now in the Pacific Northwest, I’d be considering moving. Seriously.” Continue reading »
– 7/01/2015 — Oklahoma Residents can now SUE Fracking companies for damages — Supreme Court Rules (Dutchsinse, July 1, 2015):
Huge victory against oil / gas companies causing damage via fracking/injection earthquakes !
After a series of dark moments for freedom in Oklahoma, and Texas (when state legislators passed laws which PREVENT locals from being able to stop fracking in their own towns) now the Oklahoma Supreme Court has issued a ruling which could be a game changer for the entire fracking industry.
Residents can now sue fracking companies for damages to their property , and personal health caused by fracking earthquakes.
This all stems from a case where a woman had her house chimney collapse in upon her during the large M5.7 2011 fracking earthquake in Oklahoma.
At the time, professionals tried to DENY there was any relation between the huge swarm of earthquakes, and the fracking operations.
Not trusting anything on face value, I actually pulled satellite images to see what was at the location, what I found was shocking. Continue reading »

“This might be worth keeping an eye on. If dormant volcanoes are rumbling in sympathy with fracking quakes several states away, it could be linked to the Craton Plate becoming more unhinged.”
– 6/29/2015 — Two Earthquakes 1,000 miles apart– RELATED?! — California Volcano + Oklahoma Fracking (Dutchsinse, June 29, 2015):
Two earthquakes occurred virtually back to back from one another across 1,000 miles — one in California (at a dormant volcano), and the other in Oklahoma (at a fracking operation).
I believe these events are related. I will explain more below the graphic.
[disclaimer:USGS says small earthquakes are NOT related to each other over large distances, this obviously needs to change, and is an incorrect assumption on their part]
If you look at the above graphic, which shows the earthquakes plotted via USGS coordinates, you will clearly see that both earthquakes almost fall on a direct “line” between one another. Continue reading »
H/t reader squodgy:
“Could all this hype be the escape route for an industry being devastated by Saud led oil prices?
They conveniently ignore all the damage to properties over the years, or gas from faucets, or poisoned water, so now they are unviable they need an escape plan.”
– US mid-continent seismicity linked to high-rate injection wells (The Watchers, June 19, 2015):
A dramatic increase in the rate of earthquakes in the central and eastern US since 2009 is associated with fluid injection wells used in oil and gas development, says a new study by the University of Colorado Boulder and the USGS.
The number of earthquakes associated with injection wells has skyrocketed from a handful per year in the 1970s to more than 650 in 2014, according to CU-Boulder doctoral student Matthew Weingarten, who led the new study.
The increase included several damaging quakes in 2011 and 2012 ranging between magnitudes 4.7 and 5.6 in Prague, Oklahoma; Trinidad, Colorado; Timpson, Texas; and Guy, Arkansas.
“This is the first study to look at correlations between injection wells and earthquakes on a broad, nearly national scale,” said Weingarten of CU-Boulder’s geological sciences department. “We saw an enormous increase in earthquakes associated with these high-rate injection wells, especially since 2009, and we think the evidence is convincing that the earthquakes we are seeing near injection sites are induced by oil and gas activity.”
The researchers found that “high-rate” injection wells – those pumping more than 300 000 barrels of wastewater a month into the ground – were much more likely to be associated with earthquakes than lower-rate injection wells. Injections are conducted either for enhanced oil recovery, which involves the pumping of fluid into depleted oil reservoirs to increase oil production, or for the disposal of salty fluids produced by oil and gas activity, said Weingarten.

“Very chilling warning” from Japan expert who foretold Fukushima meltdowns: “The Gods are warning us of something even more serious… incredibly disastrous” — Professor: Suddenly, our sun is doing very strange things… Crisis much worse than Carrington Event possible… Most unstable period since ice age, I’m very concerned about nuclear plants (VIDEO)
– “Very chilling warning” from Japan expert who foretold Fukushima meltdowns: “The Gods are warning us of something even more serious… incredibly disastrous” — Professor: Suddenly, our sun is doing very strange things… Crisis much worse than Carrington Event possible… Most unstable period since ice age, I’m very concerned about nuclear plants (VIDEO) (ENENews, May 26, 2015):
Katsuhiko Ishibashi, Seismologist and Emeritus professor at Kobe Univ., Apr 28, 2015 (at 38:00 in): “This really is what I think… The Gods of this huge nature are actually warning the people of the Japanese archipelago in steps… In 2003, there was an earthquake that shook a nuclear plant where the design basis went over the standard seismic motion… Then 2007 at Kashiwazaki-Kariwa… a direct, serious hit — and yet the Japanese people did not listen. Then it gave us Fukushima… The Gods are warning us that something even more serious can happen in this Japanese archipelago. And of course nuclear power plant accidents can result not just by earthquake. It could have an incredible, serious effect. It has been dishing it out step-by-step, warning us toward something that actually could be incredibly disastrous” … Moderator: “Very chilling warning” (Japan Times, May 1, 2015: “In 1997, [Ishibashi] wrote a report… where he coined the term “nuclear earthquake disaster.” The paper was written about 14 years before the Fukushima disaster, yet reads like a post-mortem of what happened: A major quake knocks out external power to the plant’s reactors and unleashes a tsunami… leading to loss of cooling and meltdowns.”) Continue reading »
– Lake Mead Water Level Mysteriously Plunges After Nevada Quake (ZeroHedge, May 24, 2015):
A 4.8 magnitude earthquake shook Las Vegas and surrounding areas Friday morning causing roads and bridges to be closed. In the 36 hours since the quake’s occurrence, water levels at Lake Mead have plunged precipitously. While we know correlation is not causation, the ‘coincidence’ of an extreme loss in water levels occurring in the aftermath of one of the largest quakes in recent Vegas history does raise a suspicious eyebrow – especially when there has been no official word on the precipitous decline.
