Russia earthquake: Magnitude 7.8 quake off far east coastline triggers US tsunami warning

A powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake which struck off Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula triggered a tsunami warning for parts of the Pacific.

The quake struck some 125 miles (200 km) from the city of Nikolskoye on Bering Island off the Kamchatka Peninsula.

The epicentre was west of Attu, the westernmost and largest island in the Near Islands group of Alaska's remote Aleutian Islands.

The earthquake was very shallow, only 6 miles (10 km) below the seabed, which would have amplified its effect, but it was far from any mainland and there were no immediate reports of any casualties or damage. Aftershocks, 21 to date (july 18th) are still occurring with many in the 5 mag range.

 

Massive iceberg nearly the size of Delaware breaks off Antarctica

Doyle Rice , USA TODAY Published 7:28 a.m. ET July 12, 2017 | Updated 12:39 p.m. ET July 12, 2017

One of the largest icebergs ever recorded broke off from an ice shelf in Antarctica, British scientists announced Wednesday. The 1 trillion ton iceberg, with twice of the volume of Lake Erie, broke off from the Larsen C ice shelf between Monday and Wednesday, according to Project MIDAS, which has been monitoring the shelf. At 2,200 square miles, the chunk of floating ice is nearly the size of Delaware.

Parallel worlds exist and interact with our world, say physicists

New theory explains many of the bizarre observations made in quantum mechanics. Now there's a new theory on the block, called the "many interacting worlds" hypothesis (MIW), and the idea is just as profound as it sounds. The theory suggests not only that parallel worlds exist, but that they interact with our world on the quantum level and are thus detectable.

Understanding Plate Motions in Earthquakes

What Is The Richter Scale?

1 to 8 on the Richter Scale, the effects are these: 1 - quake detectable only by seismographic measurement; 2 - hanging objects swing slightly and a few people might feel the tremor; 3 - people indoors feel some vibrations; 4 - buildings tremble and glassware breaks; 5 - furniture overturns and pictures fall from walls; 6 masonry cracks, some houses cave in, windows break and chimneys fall; 7 extensive damage to dams, dikes and bridges, with many buildings collapsing; 8 - all structures receive catastrophic damage.

Japan quake shifted Earth on its axis - March 14, 2011 The magnitude-9.0 earthquake that struck Japan shifted the Earth on its axis and shortened the length of a day by a hair, U.S. scientists said. It also moved Japan's coastline, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The Atlantic Rift is stretching and is the site of many more events than in past years. Our USA East Coast is also experiencing movement as noted below. The whole continent is bowing from the St. Lawrence Seaway down through San Diego. Sinkholes are opening, booming is heard, and weather is different than in the past.

Serration wave along the East Coast fault line: on 2015/01/12 in WV, MD, NJ, VA and NC - There is a fault line that runs along the eastern side of the Appalachian Mountains, called the East Coast fault line. During the big 1811-1812 New Madrid quake, it was reported that church bells rang in Boston, as this is where that fault line terminates. The East Coast fault line connects to the New Madrid, and when there is slight movement it is where the jolt STOPS at the end of the line that often registers most strongly. The Connecticut swarm was thus indeed due to the restless New Madrid fault line, which Kaku knew. All this is just the start as the 7 of 10 plate movements have picked up the pace.

"Earth Has Shifted" - Inuit Elders Issue Warning To NASA And The World

The Inuits are indigenous people that inhabit the arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland and throughout history their very lives have been dependent on being able to correctly forecast weather.... and they are warning NASA and the world that global warming isn't the cause of what we are seeing with extreme weather, earthquakes and other events. The earth has shifted, tilted or as they put it, "wobbled" to the north and they all agree "Their sky has changed!"

The elders maintain the Sun doesn't rise were it used too, they have longer day light to hunt and the Sun is higher than it used to be and warms up quicker than before. The elders who were interviewed across the north all said the same thing, their sky has changed. The stars the Sun and the Moon have all changed affecting the temperature, even affecting the way the wind blows, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict the weather, something that is a must on the Arctic. The elders all agree, they believe the Earth has shifted, wobbled or tilted to the North. Watch YouTube Video

 

 

 UPSIDE DOWN RAINBOWS: 'tis the season for upside-down rainbows. Just this week, one appeared over Sumirago (Varese), Italy:

"Bright and multi-colored, it was visible from 10 a.m. until sunset," reports photographer Paolo Bardelli.

The technical name for this phenomenon is circumzenithal arc or "CZA" for short--and it's no rainbow. CZAs are formed by sunlight shining through plate-shaped ice crystals in high clouds. Atmospheric optics expert Les Cowley calls it "the most beautiful of all ice haloes." First timers often describe the CZA as an 'upside down rainbow' and "someone has also likened it to 'a grin in the sky,'" he adds.

Circumzenithal arcs typically appear in late autumn and early winter when the air is icy and the sun is low. "The CZA forms only when sun is less than 32.3° high," notes Cowley. As winter solstice approaches, "upside down rainbows" will become increasingly common. Look for them! Source

The Great Atlantic Rift zone runs through the Atlantic Ocean encompassing both hemispheres. There has been a steady increase in earthquake activity. This indicates a spreading action between the two sides of the Rift. We are experiencing this in the US as a bowing action which runs from the Saint Lawrence Seaway down through San Diego. There was a report last year of not being able to find a bottom to the Rift. At the top of the Rift, Iceland is having a continuing earthquake motion. See Volcano page for updates.

Louisiana Sinkhole

The Louisiana sinkhole at Bayou Corne is now experiencing tremors, and growing. This sinkhole appeared on August 2, 2012 after methane bubbles were sighted on the surface in the months prior. Clearly, the salt domes holding petro for the US reserves were being breached. Petroleum products were detected in the water supply at Bayou Corne, and by December, 2012 were wafting in the air, setting phone and electric poles afire in Texas. Tremors have been increasingly recorded since March, 2013 and the sinkhole keeps expanding in size, gaining over 3 acres in size within a month, bringing its total size to about 15 acres.

North Magnetic Pole Moving Due to Core Flux: Earth's north magnetic pole is racing toward Russia at almost 40 miles (64 kilometers) a year due to magnetic changes in the planet's core, new research says.

Earthquake Information: The New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) is the most active seismic area in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains. The NMSZ is located in southeastern Missouri, northeastern Arkansas, western Tennessee, western Kentucky and southern Illinois. Southwestern Indiana and northwestern Mississippi are also close enough to receive significant shaking from large earthquakes occurring in the NMSZ.

The San Andreas fault, California, is NOT a single, continuous fault, but is actually a fault zone made of many segments. Movement may occur along any of the fault segments along the zone at any time. The San Andreas fault system is more than 1300 km (800 miles) long, and in some spots, is as much as 16 km (10 miles) deep. This is the main fault structre that is being watched in California.

Map of the Worlds Tectonic Plates & Article from National Geographic News

The Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a submerged mountain range, which extends from the Arctic Ocean to beyond the southern tip of Africa, is a divergent tectonic plate boundary. It is just one segment of the global mid-ocean ridge system that encircles the Earth. The rate of spreading along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge averages about 2.5 centimeters per year, or 25 km in a million years. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge separates the Eurasian Plate and the North American Plate in the North Atlantic, and separates the African Plate from the South American Plate in the South Atlantic. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge appears above sea-level at Iceland. This offers scientists a natural laboratory for studying on land the processes also occurring along the submerged parts of a spreading ridge. Iceland is splitting along the spreading center between the North American and Eurasian Plates, as North America moves westward relative to Eurasia.

The Mariana Trench, located in the Pacific Ocean just east of the Mariana Islands, is the deepest part of the Earth's oceans, with a maximum depth of about 11 km (6.8 miles). This is the deepest location on the surface of the Earth. The bottom of the trench is farther below sea level than Mount Everest is above it.

Earthquake Fact: At spreading zones, molten rock rises, pushing two plates apart and adding new material at their edges. Most spreading centers are found in oceans. The North American and Eurasian plates are spreading apart along the mid-Atlantic ridge. Spreading zones usually have earthquakes at shallow depths (within 30 kilometers of the surface).

It's Official! - Cows can't detect earthquakes: Swedish bovine earth-moving experiment ends in disappointment. Swedish scientists have disappointingly discovered that cows do not have "an innate ability to detect natural disasters", thereby thwarting any possibility of deploying bovine imminent earthquake detectors in seismic hotspots.

 Scientists Now Know: We're Not From Here!

Imagine the shock of growing up in a loving family with people you call "Mum" and "Dad" and then, suddenly, learning that you are actually adopted! This same sense of shock came as scientists announced that the Sun, the Moon, our planet and its siblings, were not born into the familiar band of stars known as the Milky Way galaxy, but we actually belong to a strange formation with the unfamiliar name of the Sagittarius Dwarf galaxy!

 

Implications in Global Warming?

It has been postulated that this is the real reason for both global warming since higher energy levels of the Milky Way are almost certain to cause our Sun to burn hotter and emit higher energies. Indeed, temperatures have been seen to rise on virtually all the planets in our system. This seems quite apart from any local phenomenon like greenhouse gases etc. This grand turning is possibly the root cause for the discontinuation of the Mayan calendar (the most accurate on the planet) because the 'read-point' of the Pleiades star cluster, which many believe the calendar was based upon, can no longer be a constant as we begin to steer away from the earlier predictable movements.
