    Some movie goers may still be reeling after seeing some very rare footage of San Francisco around the time of the 1906 earthquake. A small crowd of people turned up at the Edison Theater in Fremont Saturday to view the premiere of a nine-minute film of the devastation. The footage from the San Francisco-based Miles Brothers film studio was discovered at the Alemany Flea Market last summer after being missing for more than a century. Anniversary of the quake, which destroyed much of Santa Rosa too, is Wednesday.

    New York City could be hit with a $39 billion in damage with 30 million tons of debris clogging the streets if a long-overdue earthquake hit. The city of 8.5 million people is not thought of as a tremor hot spot, but the five boroughs are riddled with fault lines that could bring dozens of buildings down. Because the city is so dense and littered with thousands of tall buildings, even a 5.0 magnitude earthquake nearby would cause such damage, experts fear.

    The International Energy Agency (IEA) said in a new forecast this week that growth in U.S. oil production will cover 80% of new global demand for oil in the next three years. U.S. oil production is expected to increase nearly 30% to 17 million barrels a day by 2023 with much of that growth coming from oil produced through fracking in West Texas. Republicans politicians and policymakers celebrated the news and sought to take credit for the development. Trump has sought to portray himself as a savior of the U.S. oil and gas industry, opening up federal lands to oil...

    Parts of Britain have been struck by the country's biggest earthquake for 10 years. The British Geological Survey said the tremor had a 4.4 magnitude, with a depth of 7.4km, and the epicentre was about 20km north of Swansea. The quake happened just after 2.30pm on Saturday. A spokesperson told Sky News it was "reasonably-sized" and that the effects had been felt as far afield as Devon and Birmingham. "This is the largest earthquake in mainland UK since the 5.2 magnitude Market Rasen earthquake in 2008," he said.

    The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network says Wednesday the 3.9-magnitude and 2.1-magnitude temblors struck shortly after midnight near the volcanic peak.   ...   Residents reported feeling the largest earthquake as far away as Portland, Oregon -- about 70 miles to the south -- and in a large area of southwest Washington.   ... The seismic network outreach director, Bill Steele, says it's fairly typical to see earthquake swarms in this area, though somewhat unusual to have one with a 3.9 magnitude.   ...   He says even though the quakes have been located near Mount St. Helens, it's not caused...

    Roger Bilham, a geophysicist at the University of Colorado, Boulder, informed that, in this year, the planet would face more powerful earthquakes and the magnitude level will be 7.0 or more. It can even reach 9.0. He stated that the number of earthquakes could reach up to 20 in 2018. The published report says, when the planet will enter in to slow rotation period, that will decrease the centrifugal force and tighten the planet’s equator. After that, the tectonic plates will crush with each other. The force that will erupt from this event will start super earthquakes on Earth. The...

    Living along the Ring of Fire, I monitor seismic activity on a regular basis. For the past 36 hours, there has not been a single earthquake anywhere on Earth with a magnitude greater than 5.0. This seems to be very unusual. Does anyone have an idea as to whether we should be bracing for a 'Big One"?

    As predicted in the Word, the converging lines of prophetic events are centered on Jerusalem. This cup of trembling is sending shockwaves that are reverberate around the globe, signaling the soon arrival of an event horizon unlike the anything the world has ever seen. When "Muslims" are confirming the right Israel has to its land and standing firm against the claim that it was plundered from the "Palestinians", you know that things have been turned upside down. John explains in this week's message entitled "Many Earthquakes"

Fears of a massive earthquake rise after 134 mini-tremors rattle the San Andreas fault in just one week Fresh fears have been raised that a huge earthquake is about to hit California after a swarm of recent tremors. In the last week 134 earthquakes have hammered a three-mile stretch around Monterey County on the San Andreas fault. Of those earthquakes, 17 were stronger than 2.5 magnitude and six of them were stronger than 3.0, with more tremors expected in the coming weeks, experts warn. It follows fears raised...

    Upsurge in big earthquakes predicted for 2018 as Earth rotation slows Scientists say number of severe quakes is likely to rise strongly next year because of a periodic slowing of the Earth’s rotation Scientists have warned there could be a big increase in numbers of devastating earthquakes around the world next year. They believe variations in the speed of Earth’s rotation could trigger intense seismic activity, particularly in heavily populated tropical regions. Although such fluctuations in rotation are small – changing the length of the day by a millisecond – they could still be implicated in the release of vast...

    At least 61 people were killed and more than 300 others were hurt in a powerful earthquake on the Iran-Iraq border region Sunday, Iranian officials revealed. The quake had a magnitude of 7.3, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) announced, as reports of serious structural damage started to emerge. At least six of the deaths were on Iraq's side of the border, Iranian state media reported. On its website, the USGS placed the quake's epicenter at about 18.6 miles southwest of the Iraqi city of Halabja. The USGS also issued an "orange" alert for "shaking-related fatalities and economic losses."

    For a city that seems to move at the speed of light, being late is never a good thing. That’s true for budget agreements, that’s true for commuter trains, and as it turns out, it’s probably true for earthquakes as well. We tend to think of seismic activity as a west coast problem. Friday demonstrated all too well what a magnitude 8.2 earthquake can do to Mexico and Central America; many of us remember the World Series quake that rocked the San Francisco area in 1989. But New York, which is actually riddled with faults, has a long history of...

    A POWERFUL earthquake could strike the planet by FRIDAY because of planetary alignments, a self-styled tremor forecaster has warned. New age earthquake researcher Frank Hoogerbeets warned a major magnitude 7 quake could strike within two days. (snip) His latest video warning, also available on YouTube, said we entered a "critical period" on Monday this week, which will continue until Friday. He told Express.co.uk: "From August 28 to September 1 will be critical because of two planetary alignments, one of which is Jupiter-Mercury-Uranus. "In July the same planets aligned and a magnitude 7.7 earthquake was triggered within three days." Mr Hoogerbeets...
