Starting on June 7th, FEMA will be conducting a large scale drill that has been named “Cascadia Rising” that will simulate the effects of a magnitude 9.0 earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone and an accompanying west coast tsunami dozens of feet tall. According to the official flyer for the event, more than “50 counties, plus major cities, tribal nations, state and federal agencies, private sector businesses, and non-governmental organizations across three states – Washington, Oregon, and Idaho – will be participating”. In addition to “Cascadia Rising”, U.S. Northern Command will be holding five other exercises simultaneously. According to the final draft of the Cascadia Rising drill plan, those five exercises are entitled “Ardent Sentry 2016″, “Vigilant Guard”, “Special Focus Exercise”, “Turbo Challenge” and “Joint Logistics Over-The-Shore”.
The primary scenario that of all of these participants will be focusing on will be one that involves a magnitude 9.0 earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone followed by a giant tsunami that could displace up to a million people from northern California to southern Canada.
We have never seen such a disaster before in all of U.S. history.
The San Andreas fault is one of California’s most dangerous. While the last big earthquake to strike the southern San Andreas was in 1857, as LA Times reports Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center, explained this week “the springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight. And the southern San Andreas fault, in particular, looks like it’s locked, loaded and ready to go.”
Have you noticed that the crust of the Earth is starting to become a lot more unstable? Continue reading »
Small magnitude earthquake rates have been steadily increasing since March, reaching nearly 40 per week.
5 May 2016 – (Excerpts from USGS website) – Over the last 8 weeks, there have been over 130 earthquakes formally located by the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network and many more earthquakes too small to be located. The earthquakes have low magnitudes of 0.5 or less; the largest a magnitude 1.3. These earthquakes are too small to be felt at the surface. Continue reading »
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 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.
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.
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 »
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 »
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 »
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:
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 »
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 »
