March 6, 2019– Mary Greeley News – In a new report prepared for Prime Minister Putin by the Institute of Physics of the Earth warned that America in the next two weeks is in danger of catastrophic proportions Earthquake.
Focusing on the U.S., Mexico, Central and South America, and the region along the west coast of the New Madrid zone Fault.
SCIENTISTS have urged government officials to prepare for a terrifying and unprecedented magnitude-9 mega-earthquake that would unleash a deadly tsunami with 30 metre-high waves.
CASCADIA AND THE ‘REALLY BIG ONE’
The Cascadia subduction zone is a region where two tectonic plates are colliding. The Juan de Fuca, a small oceanic plate, is being driven under the North American plate, atop which the continental U.S. sits.
Subduction systems—where one tectonic plate slides over another—are capable of producing the world’s largest known earthquakes. A prime example is the 2011 Tohoku earthquake that rocked Japan.
Cascadia is seismically very quiet compared to other subduction zones—but it’s not completely inactive. Research indicates the fault ruptured in a magnitude 9.0 event in 1700. That’s roughly 30 times more powerful than the largest predicted San Andreas earthquake. Researchers suggest that we are within the roughly 300- to 500-year window during which another large Cascadia event may occur.
The report also warned that further catastrophic earthquakes in Asia and the sub-continent, as “more than likely.”
Increasing concern about the possibility Mega Earthquake, the report says, is based on the growth of subtle electromagnetic signals that were detected in the upper atmosphere of the earth in many parts of the world, with the most intense they appear on the U.S. West Coast and parts of the Midwest.
It is important to note that Russian and British scientists are leaders in predicting earthquakes based on these subtle electromagnetic signals and have joined forces to launch a satellite into space, to better track them.
More ominously, the report is that Russian scientists have confirmed the independent analysis of New Zealand mathematician and long-term weather trends forecaster Ken Ring, who predicted the deadly earthquake in Christchurch (N. Zealand), and this week issued a new warning that the new earthquake should strike around 20 March.
Scientists have declared that it is a matter of “when, not if” a devastating earthquake strikes New Zealand, unleashing a mega-tsunami that could wreak havoc across large parts of the world. Geologists in New Zealand claim the Hikurangi Subduction Zone is one of the world’s biggest faultlines and there is evidence that it could soon set off a quake and a subsequent tsunami. The rupture of the fault line would cause damage and destruction on a scale bigger than the Japanese quake and tsunami of 2011.
Ring explains his methodology for predicting earthquakes in the following way:
“Planets strong influence on the Earth, but indirectly, by influencing the Sun. Some planets are very large. If the sun were basketball, the gas giants Jupiter and Saturn would be the size of a grapefruit, and the Earth on such a scale would be the size of a grain of pepper.
Jupiter and Saturn cause extra tides on the Sun (as in the case of the Earth and the Moon). These large solar tides become solar activity and solar flares.
At the moment, Jupiter and Saturn are on opposite sides of the Sun, and create time tug of war with Earth in the center. It began in September of last year, and will continue until about May.
In September, the Earth was in line with the Sun, Jupiter and Saturn.
That’s why in different places earthquakes above seven points. For example, in Pakistan, there was an earthquake at the same time with the earthquake in Christchurch. This alignment of Jupiter Saturn will continue until about May, and the Earth will be back on line in March. That is why around 20 March to expect accidents, large earthquakes may, when the Moon may be again in the position of the trigger element. “
Referred to in this report, low pressure associated with catastrophic earthquakes in the Midwest, which today continues to suffer from heavy rainfall, and in particular affect on the New Madrid fault in Arkansas, which is only in the last six months has experienced 800 earthquakes.
But the most ominous in this report is a warning that penetrated faults California can survive the most devastating earthquake last decades as new reports for this region show the mass death of millions of fish, just like when whales stranded on the beaches of New Zealand for a few days before the destruction of Christchurch on February 22.
Further clouds the situation and that the sun continues to emit large solar flares.
Interestingly, the U.S. declared the rare exercises with the U.S. military, the CIA, Canadian representatives of the U.S. Treasury and the State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the agency ready response to the threats, and the Red Cross between March 21-25 at Fort Leavenworth, staff Kansas, and if the worst happens, they certainly will be ready.
“Much more than the earthquake, the tsunami would be the dangerous element.
“Waves of up to 30m could be seen and landfall could happen within just seven minutes notice.”
The preparedness plan is coordinating between scientists, government officials, emergency services, health providers, business experts and NFO leaders.
Martha Savage, professor of geophysics at Victoria University, said the longer the wait, the bigger the quake.
In summary, the report says that it is not to establish a solid and reliable prediction mechanism, which would have been recognized by the scientific community, it is worth noting too big to ignore abnormal number of matches, leading to catastrophic mega-earthquakes occurring around the world, and which ignored until then, until they pose a direct threat.
Geologists have recently been able to deploy hundreds of GPS monitors across Cascadia to record the subtle ground deformations that result from the plates’ inability to slide past each other. Just like historic seismicity, plate locking is more common in the northern and southern parts of Cascadia.
Geologists are also now able to observe difficult-to-detect seismic rumblings known as tremor. These events occur over the time span of several minutes up to weeks, taking much longer than a typical earthquake. They don’t cause large ground motions even though they can release significant amounts of energy. Researchers have only discovered these signals in the last 15 years, but permanent seismic stations have helped build a robust catalog of events. Tremor, too, seems to be more concentrated along the northern and southern parts of the fault.
Our results provide new insights into how this subduction zone, and possibly others, behaves over geologic time frames of millions of years. Unfortunately our results can’t predict when the next large Cascadia megathrust earthquake will occur. This will require more research and dense active monitoring of the subduction zone, both onshore and offshore, using seismic and GPS-like stations to capture short-term phenomena.
Our work does suggest that a large event is more likely to start in either the northern or southern sections of the fault, where the plates are more fully locked, and gives a possible reason for why that may be the case.
It remains important for the public and policymakers to stay informed about the potential risk involved in cohabiting with a subduction zone fault and to support programs such as Earthquake Early Warning that seek to expand our monitoring capabilities and mitigate loss in the event of a large rupture.
