Earthquake Lights in Mexico (2 Videos)

Earthquake lights in Mexico – Two videos:

I talk about earthquake lights in Not by Fire but by Ice … and here they are.(See chapter 8, “Earthquake lights and Crazy Snakes.”)

Fox News reported that the quake, the strongest in a century, was accompanied by flashes of green and blue lights shooting throughout the night sky. According to an El Universal story, the lights are a naturally occurring electro-magnetic charge caused by the collapse of the rocks in the ground during the earthquake.

Uh huh. I mentioned that theory in Not by Fire but by Ice. I called it “rocks that go bump in the night.

But as I said,

Mexico Shaken By Magnitude 8.1 Earthquake, “Most Powerful Earthquake In A Century”, At Least 15 Dead

Probably just a ‘coincidence’:

“SEVERE GEOMAGNETIC STORM: The debris from this week’s monster X9-class solar flare hit Earth’s magnetic field last night. The result: Northern Lights in the USA as far south as Arkansas. A severe (G4-class) geomagnetic storm on Sept. 8th sparked auroras so bright that, in parts of Scandinavia, traffic stopped as drivers pulled over to absorb the display. More storms are in the offing tonight and tomorrow as Earth moves through the wake of this potent CME.”

Mexico Shaken By “Most Powerful Earthquake In A Century”, At Least 15 Dead: 

Southern Mexico was shaken late Thursday by an 8.1-magnitude earthquake that killed at least 15 people, triggered a tsunami warning and was felt as far away as Mexico City . Despite the immense power of the tremor, which Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto described as “the most powerful earthquake in a century,” authorities said it had caused limited damage – but warned residents in affected areas to brace for aftershocks.

According to the Associated Press, the quake caused buildings to sway violently in Mexico’s capital more than 650 miles away from its epicenter. Residents fled buildings in their pajamas and gathered in frightened groups in the street.

While Mexico City avoided the widespread devastation of a 1985 quake that killed thousands, the tremor was strong enough to shatter windows at Mexico City airport and knock out power for one million residents, according to Reuters. For many, access has yet to be restored.

A number of buildings suffered severe damage in parts of southern Mexico. Some of the worst initial reports came from Juchitan in Oaxaca state, where sections of the town hall, a hotel, a bar and other buildings were reduced to rubble. The cornice of a hotel fell in the southern tourist city of Oaxaca, a witness told Reuters. The tremor was felt as far away as neighboring Guatemala.

Idaho earthquake swarm just won’t stop

Idaho earthquake swarm just won’t stop:

Local authorities say they cannot ever remember any earthquake swarm in Southeast Idaho that comes even close to the current series of temblors shaking the region.

I don’t know if they’re connected or not, but when you look on a larger map, you’ll see that these earthquakes are occurring about 120 miles SSE of the Yellowstone supervolcano.

Montana Earthquake Increased “Super Volcano” Eruption Concerns

Montana Earthquake Increased “Super Volcano” Eruption Concerns:

After being hit with the strongest earthquake in 20 years, Western Montanans woke to the trembles of a 5.8 magnitude quake. Although the damage is not severe, many geological experts are now raising concerns of Yellowstone’s dormant super volcano. In the wake of this earthquake, fears have increased that it could be waking up.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported, with Reuters adding that the tremor was felt hundreds of miles away, from Missoula to Billings and some surrounding states. A swarm of over 1100 earthquakes recorded in the Yellowstone caldera over the past month, in conjunction with this recent quake in Montana has prompted scientists to voice concerns about the so far dormant Yellowstone “Supervolcano.”

“Last night’ Dutchsinse report, analysis of quakes round the world.
Slide to 13 mins where he highlights an ELF ( extremely low frequency) or HAARP generated earthquake between Florida(Miami) and the Bahama Islands.
He diplomatically claims to not know much about these, but in fact has been reporting on them for at least five years and even did a paper on it, so I guess the pled ignorance is in case jewtube black him again.
