Osaka Bay Looking Yellow (Earthquake fears?)
Fukushima Diary ^ | June 13th, 2012 | Mochizuki

Posted on 06/13/2012 2:34:13 PM PDT by PuzzledInTX

At this moment, people in Osaka and Kobe are tweeting the color of Osaka bay looks strange.

From the picture, it looks pale yellow.

From local citizens, it became strange color before The great Hanshin earthquake (1995) as well. They might need to stay informed just in case.

If it starts bubbling and foaming I’d say...
Gojira!

I’m making a mental note of it, even though I live in Europe.

Let’s see if there’s a significant tremor in the next 72 hours or so.

Certainly would be interesting if this was some kind of forewarning; it makes me wonder what on Earth is causing it?

Thanks for the links. The Osake BioWeather service cam shows it to be OK, but am not sure what is normal.

If it contained sulphur coming from underwater vents there should be a smell. Or could it be plankton related? Those poor folks don’t need anything else to worry about.

Yellow means some kind of sulfur compound. I have a dim recollection that the amount of sulfur dioxide in the air shows some correlation with an impending earthquake.

Not to worry. They refer to white folks as "corpse or maggot white'.

The Chinese refer to the Japanese as "evil dwarves". They also call us "foreign devils".

Still, the Chinese have an official character for the Japanese but i'm not sure they have one for us. Might be wise to find out if they respect us yet!

It'll be interesting to see what the chemical analysis shows, if anything. I'm no chemist or geologist, but when I hear that some natural phenomenon has a yellowish color, I immediately think sulfur, but not gaseous sulfur since no one is reporting any funny odors.

It's a subduction zone so things are being carried down, not up, right? Unless there is some kind of venting taking place, as perhaps, say, an underwater geyser. I doubt it's underwater volcanic activity of some long inactive volcano since volcanoes often are preceded with tremors. But everything I'm saying is useless! Just free associating, thinking out loud, stream of consciousness stuff. Useless.

I’m expecting Seattle to get their 9.0 magnitude EQ any time now. Last one was in 1700 AD and is overdue.

Maybe Gojira will show up next there! Could be the next hit for Japanese movies.

Why does Japan let these things happen? Don't they have an EPA?

Maybe we could send them a couple hundred trial lawyers ... airdrop 'em right onto the yellow spot and put a quick end to whatever is causing it.

There was a 4.5 quake off shore Honshu (not far from Osaka Bay) earlier today. No idea what either means of course...related???

Like others, I'd be alert if I lived around there. But not to the point of paranoia.

Maybe when the Yellowstone super volcano explodes, the quake in Seattle will only be 9.0. On the other hand the Come See Seattle ad may have to be changed to read: Seattle, stay where you are. Yellowstone will come to you.

The bay is about 500 driving miles from Fukushima so I’d say about 300 miles as the crow flies. Don’t know if any shakes, rattles and rolls in Osaka would be the final straw on the nuke’s bulging #4 wall or not. Either way, I wouldn’t want to be on the island these days.

That does make one say, "uh-oh." How close were the epicenters to Osaka, if you happen know?

I don't want to wish any further misfortune on those poor people. They just can't seem to catch a break. That island must be one of the worst geological formations on Earth to call home, IF you take the short view.

Otherwise, anyone choosing to live within 1,000 or 2,000 miles (depending on who you talk to) of Yellowstone, or any of the planet's other super-volcanoes, won't look too bright either, me included. But, I am kind of hoping, for their sake, it is just a plankton bloom, since all the alternatives I can think of are a lot worse.

Soils in the Osaka area are primarily yellow clays and they had some significant rainfall of late. I’metting on surface water runoff coloring the bay. I live near a large somewhat enclosed saltwater body, and the water color is significantly influenced by runoff - most folks never pay attention,so when it’s pointed out they assume something terrible has happened.
