    Video at URL. Lots more hotspots occurred yesterday along the New Madrid fault zone, stretching down into Louisiana. I believe he first noticed hot spots occurring on the New Madrid on 10/4. Also hot spots occurring at the Washibngton Idaho border. Dutchsinse believes that hot spots appearing on the Short Infra Red spectrum is an indication of seismic stress could be an early indicator of earthquakes.

    Video at URL.. Swarm of Hotspots popping up on New Madrid seismic zone. Also hot spots on Wabash seismic zone. DEW (directed energy weapon) pointed at the New Madrid zone. Also examines some hot spots in NY and IL. Issued a watch for the New Madrid for the next 7 days. Says the DEW signature can either be a HOAX in the official government data, or a mistake or the real thing. Says a mistake is kind of ruled out by the presense of the hot spots in the same location. Leaving hoax or the real thing.
  • USGS says there is a 1-in-300 chance that the current Salton Sea earthquake swarm will be followed by a magnitude 7 or higher

    The desert near the Salton Sea continue to tremble as a swarm of small earthquakes that started Wednesday continued into Thursday. The swarm slowed down Thursday, but at least four earthquakes of magnitude 3 or larger were recorded in the first seven hours of the day, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The swarm is taking place in the Brawley seismic zone, a predominantly extensional tectonic zone that connects the southern terminus of the San Andreas Fault with the Imperial Fault in Southern California. The area has seen swarms in the past in which they remain active for as many...
  • Strange Precariously Balanced Rocks Provide Earthquake Forecasting Clues

    Precariously balanced rocks (PBRs) are formations found throughout the world where a slender boulder is balanced precariously on a pedestal boulder. They form as blocks preserved on cliffs, or when softer rocks erode and leave the harder rocks behind. They can also form when landslides or retreating glaciers deposit them in strange positions. Despite their delicate balancing act, many PBRs — like the Brimham Rocks in Yorkshire, or Chiricahua National Monument in Arizona — have survived earthquake shaking over thousands of years. They can therefore tell us the upper limit of earthquake shaking that has occurred since they were first...

    Fox13 ^ | 9/3
    A small earthquake rattled the Florida Panhandle this morning, according to data from the United States Geological Survey. USGS data shows the magnitude 4.0 quake happened just after 11 a.m. Eastern time and was centered about two miles northwest of Mount Carmel, Florida, a town just north of Pensacola along the Florida-Alabama border. A 4.0-magnitude quake on the Richter scale is considered a “light” earthquake with noticeable shaking of indoor objects and rattling noises, but zero to minimal damage.
  • Powerful Magnitude 6.5 Earthquake Strikes Northern Chile - EMSC

    Early readings of the Tuesday phenomenon from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC) recorded a magnitude 6.5 earthquake off the shore of Atacama, Chile. The center's Twitter account revealed that the earthquake struck some 129 kilometers southwest of the Chilean city of Copiapó. Initial seismograph readings were revised from magnitude 6.3 to magnitude 6.5 within the first hour after the event. Spanish-language testimonials spanning more than 600 kilometers from the quake's epicenter have claimed the quake was noticeable and on the stronger side.

    (WWJ) After people all over metro Detroit reported feeling the ground shake, it's been confirmed that there was an earthquake Friday in metro Detroit. (Note from Maddie: Monroe is NOT Metro Detroit, but whatever) According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the 3.4 magnitude was recorded at 6:55 p.m., just off shore in Lake Erie. The precise location of the epicenter was 41.904°N 83.315°W, according to USGS. That's a little less than 2 miles south-southeast of Detroit Beach, an unincorporated community in Monroe County. https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/us6000bis9/executive

    The first quake, measuring magnitude 4.4, struck at 8:09 a.m. and was centered about 34 miles east of San Vicente, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. About 20 minutes later, a magnitude 5.1 temblor struck 54 miles east of Maneadero, followed by earthquakes measuring 4.1 an 4.3, according to USGS.

    SAN DIEGO -- With counts of COVID-19 patients now rising rapidly just north of California's border with Mexico, hospital executives here are asking federal officials to move "immediately" to screen the tens of thousands of people crossing every day from densely populated Tijuana, a city of 2 million people, and other parts of the Baja peninsula.Chief executives of two major California healthcare systems sent a sent a letter late Tuesday to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. They worry their systems will be overrun, not only from local San Diego cases, but from people who traverse the border unknowingly...

    USGS ^ | August 10, 2020
    A swarm of earthquakes beneath the Salton Sea began on August 10, 2020. The largest earthquake that has occurred, as of this release, is a magnitude 4.6 at 8:56 AM PDT on August 10. This earthquake and the associated swarm are located approximately 8 miles from the southern end of the San Andreas Fault. This area has also seen swarms in the past – most recently, in 2001, 2009, and 2016. Past swarms have remained active for 1 to 20 days, with an average duration of about a week. During this earthquake swarm, the probability of larger earthquakes in this...
  • Rare 'boomerang' earthquake observed along Atlantic Ocean fault line

    Phys.org ^ | 08/10/2020 | Hayley Dunning, Imperial College London
    During large earthquakes, the breaking of rock can spread down the fault line. Now, an international team of researchers have recorded a 'boomerang' earthquake, where the rupture initially spreads away from initial break but then turns and runs back the other way at higher speeds. The team, led by scientists from the University of Southampton and Imperial College London, report their results today in Nature Geoscience. While large (magnitude 7 or higher) earthquakes occur on land and have been measured by nearby networks of monitors (seismometers), these earthquakes often trigger movement along complex networks of faults, like a series of...

    Destruction of Helike ^ | October 17, 2000 | John Noble Wilford
    In their reports, the researchers said these findings suggested that the pavement and wall stones were from the time of Helike's destruction and supported stories that the city ruins were for a long time submerged in the sea or a lagoon. The ruins were buried by silt, which, combined with a general uplifting of the land, had left the once-submerged site about half a mile inland from the present shore. A house built on the shore between the Selinous and Kerynites Rivers in the 1890's is now about 1,000 feet from the sea.

    igging on a coastal plain at the Gulf of Corinth three years ago, archaeologists came upon some ruins of Helike, a Greek city destroyed by earthquake in Plato's time. A search for the rest of Helike has now turned up something even more ancient, rare and inviting.The archaeologists say they have uncovered the stone foundations, cobbled streets and pottery of a well-preserved 4,500-year-old urban center, one of the few Early Bronze Age communities ever found on the Greek mainland.Preliminary investigation at the prehistoric site, the researchers say, reveals that this was a prosperous town at the time pre-Homeric Troy enjoyed...
