Altering Earthquakes:

ZetaTalk Aug 7, 2010

As of late, I have observed that USGS and EMSC are a bit lax on their reports of earthquakes. Sometimes not seeing anything reported for hours from the last update, or seeing periods of 90-200 minutes with no earthquakes in between. My question is, are they leaving swarms of earthquakes out of their reports, or there are actually periods of no earthquakes?

SOZT:   Greater than 90% of the earthquake activity is being altered by the USGS at present, which is under orders to prevent any clue being given to the public about the Earth changes caused by the presence of Planet X. Over a decade ago, the approach was to de-sensitize the live seismographs periodically, so the displays do not turn black worldwide, and to ignore the twice-a-day patterns showing up on these seismographs. Then any quakes that could be dropped were dropped. This was obvious to some who were watching the database manipulation. Quakes in the list would suddenly disappear. This was particularly the case where a quake happened in a remote location, or out in the ocean. Dumbing down the magnitude quickly followed, but in order to ensure the public did not notice, the USGS took control of all websites reporting quake statistics. At times, this control breaks, and discrepancies are reported to the public. Some countries rebel. Quake swarms are another source of control, as they pepper the databases with many quakes and skew the statistics, and thus are pulled from the database. Else the question is raised, why so many?   EOZT

Will the USGS internet system be a reliable warning system for the European tsunami by registering on the net the New Madrid earthquake on the exact time it occurs?

SOZT:   It will not be a lack of information from the USGS that will be the point of confusion during the earthquakes leading up to the New Madrid adjustment, it will be knowing which quake is the big one vs the many minor quakes preceding it. The USGS downgrades almost all earthquakes, to prevent meaningful statistics from being generated from their databases. They also exclude quakes whenever they can, but this is unlikely to happen in the New Madrid area as it is in the center of a populated land mass. Thus you will have magnitude 6 quakes that will be called a 5.2, magnitude 7 quakes called a 6.1, and when a magnitude 8 or greater quake occurs, it will be called a 6.9.

We would advise that rather than watching the USGS quake statistics, that you watch the Earth changes. The adjustment that will incite the European tsunami will involve bridges on the Mississippi breaking, and being impassable. The land to the west of the Mississippi will drop so that the Mississippi will become 50 miles wide in the state of Mississippi. Watch for this. The New Madrid adjustment will be several large quakes of magnitude 8-9, though will be listed as a lesser magnitude. As the N American continent continues to unzip up to and along the Seaway, the quakes will be less than a magnitude 8 but very destructive to Cleveland and Toledo and Buffalo and the inland locks along the Seaway. Thus it is not what the USGS says that should be watched, but the condition of the bridges on the Mississippi, the impact on the cities along the Seaway, and whether the inland locks are reported as inoperable.   EOZT

Please collect earthquake-reports here. Significant Quakes or Magnitude 7+ can be posted separately.

World Seismology

Interesting moderate to strong seismic activity in the geographic north pole (archipelago Jose Fransisco) in Russia (limit of the Euroasiatica and North American tectonic plates in the last hours.) There have been 2 submarine telluric events of 5.7 and one of 6.0 (without threat of tsunami) all 3 with focus at 10 km depth

More than a hundred small earthquakes recorded in the Alps since the beginning of the week - FRANCE 27 October 2017

Since midnight, this 27th of October 2017, the SISMalp network has already recorded 16 earthquakes in the Alps, mainly in Maurienne. The largest, with a magnitude of 3.74 on the Richter scale, occurred at 3 am in Montgellafrey.

dozens of small earthquakes have shaken Savoy for a few days, at the entrance to the Maurienne. For now, no damage has been reported.

According to the SISMalp network, this sector has been experiencing a "seismicity swarm" for a year, which has been reinforced for three months.


Around 870 earthquakes were detected last week by the national seismic network of the Icelandic Meteorological Office. An earthquake swarm started NE of the town Selfoss on the evening of October 20th and there are still quite a few earthquakes that need to be checked.

The largest earthquake of last week was a part of the swarm and occurred on October 20th at 21:51. It was of magnitude M4.1. On October 18th, there was an earthquake by Grimsey island of magnitude M3.6. Three earthquakes were detected in Hekla and two in Eyjafjallajokull. Finally, 4 events were located under the Bárðarbunga, on October 26th and 27th, from M 2.8 to M 4.7.

United States faces 'aftershocks' after Mexico earthquake. 2017 record-breaking for Mexico. 

The recent earthquake in Mexico was a record. Wave of small 'aftershocks' swept across United States 

Earthquake data: Natural Resources Canada - Canada; United States Geological Survey (without California) - US; Servicio Sismológico Nacional | UNAM, México - Mexico

Fracking has been a process used extensively for decades, since 1903 within the US alone. If fracking caused earthquakes, has this just been noticed? This is clearly an excuse for the increase in earthquakes, one of many the establishment will latch onto as earthquake frequency increases and earthquakes occur in unusual places.

ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for December 17, 2011

The practice of underground disposal has been used by the industry for 70 years, yet the uptick in seismic activity has only occurred in the past few years.
- Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe, chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. [11]

"The majority, but not all, of the recent earthquakes appear to be the result of natural stresses, since they are consistent with the regional Oklahoma natural stress field"


2017 record-breaking for Mexico

There are several reasons why we can assume that seismic activity in Mexico has increased:

1) Number of earthquakes M>8

Since 1900 (instrumental detection and record keeping began around 1900) only 4 earthquakes with magnitude M>8 were registered in Mexico. [1]

Earthquake data: [1]; D3.js code [6]

2) Magnitude of Chiapas earthquake

Enrique Pena Nieto, the Mexican president, said the quake had registered a magnitude of 8.2, the strongest the country had suffered in more than a century; the US Geological Survey put it at 8.1. [2] 

Earthquake data: [1]

3) Number of earthquakes M>5 since 1990

It should be noted that the number (per year) of earthquakes was relatively stable until 2012 (Guerrero–Oaxaca strongest earthquake since 1985) and 2017.

Earthquake data: [4]; D3.js code [7]

Earthquake data: [4]; D3.js code [8]

4) Total number of earthquakes per month

Total number (per month) of earthquakes have trpled in Septmber, 2017. Such an "explosion" cannot be explained by the increasing number of seismic stations (and etc). Nevertheless, before that there was a linear trend.

Earthquake data: [4]; D3.js code [9]

Some scientists have noted the strange nature of the earthquake:

"Unusual Mexico earthquake may have relieved stress in seismic gap

Credits: (Graphic) G. Grullon/Science; (Data) V. Kostoglodov; Mexico National Seismological Service

<...> He concedes, though, that the quake’s effect on the gap is hard to judge, because of its unusual origin. Most big Mexican earthquakes occur right along the interface between the colliding Cocos and North American plates. But this rupture began 70 kilometers down, within the Cocos plate itself, and rose up before stopping at about 40 kilometers’ depth, likely at the plate interface. “It’s not the same fault that they’re expecting [to close] the Tehuantepec gap,” says Joann Stock, a seismologist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena
Vladimir Kostoglodov, a seismologist at UNAM in Mexico City, says he is fielding requests for data from researchers around the world who want to investigate this “extremely strange” earthquake and its aftermath. “It’s worth making a big effort to learn what’s happening,” he says. “This might happen in other subduction zones in other parts of the world.” " [3] Lizzie Wade. (2017, September 12). Unusual Mexico earthquake may have relieved stress in seismic gap. Sciencemag

US 'Aftershocks'?

This is the most active September (Earthquakes M>3)  for the US if not include California. And the second most active in terms of the number of earthquakes per month, after only April 1980. (1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens)

Earthquake data: [10]; D3.js code [9]

But this increase takes place only in the Eastern and Central US, while in California (and some surrounding areas), in fact, there is a decrease in earthquakes. It's also worth noting that these earthquakes are mostly small M3. But for the Eastern and Central US this is still strange. But this did not affect Canada.

Yellowstone was also affected:

Source of image:

"The ongoing earthquake swarm at the Yellowstone National Park supervolcano is now one of the longest ever recorded, having started on June 12. Over the past three and a half months, almost 2,500 earthquakes have been recorded in the western part of the national park. This puts it on a par with the biggest swarm ever recorded, where more than 3,000 earthquakes took place over three months. <...> This story has been corrected to reflect  that the current swarm is one of the longest on record, rather than the longest. The swarm in 1985 was longer if the tail end of seismicity is taken into account. " - [13] writes Newsweek

It also swept Texas:

"Earthquakes Return to North Texas.

This summer two earthquakes shook North Texas within just weeks of each other. The U.S. Geological Society (USGS) recorded temblors in the Irving area of magnitudes 3.1 and 2.7, on August 27 and September 1, respectively. The USGS did not record earthquakes of that magnitude and frequency in the region since before 2016, according to a recently published seismological report." -  [14] writes Texasmonthly

But we also need to take into account some factors, for example, the increase in seismic stations and etc:

Here is a quote from a recent SSN report:

"Figure 8 shows the earthquake catalog in Mexico from 1900 to date. The horizontal axis represents the years and vertical axis the magnitude of the earthquakes, is clearly appreciates that since the expansion of the Seismic Service Network National Seismological Survey in the 1970s, it was possible to detect and locate more earthquakes of magnitudes less than 6. Since the National Seismological Service began to exchange data with regional seismic networks it was possible to detect number of small earthquakes in the Mexican Republic. In Figure 8, the 5 earthquakes of magnitudes greater than 8 that have been recorded since there are seismic instruments, are presented in circles. These five earthquakes are those that are observed in Figure 7, the two red circles represent the 2 earthquakes of magnitude 8.2 that have occurred in Mexico during that period of time. The last of them is the September 7 earthquake of 2017 in Chiapas." [1]

We have repeatedly described the N American Plate bow, wherein the Aleutian Islands are pulled toward the tip of Mexico. There are two geological factors involved. One is that the N American Plate cannot roll, as it is a flat top where its border runs through the Arctic. S America and Africa can roll, because their plates have rounded edges, but N America is stuck in place, forced into a bow. The second factor is the S American Roll, wherein Mexico is shoved to the West as the Caribbean Plate is shoved to the West. The repercussions of this large adjustment on the border of the Cocos and N American Plate are many.

The bow has tightened. More inland quake swarms will occur, and are already being recorded. The New Madrid Fault Line of course has been put under increased stress from the diagonal pull. We predicted that the 7 of 10 for the N American Plate would start with moderate quakes of magnitude 7 or so, which in today’s climate of USGS lies would be under declared to be under a magnitude 5. These early quakes would tend to proceed up the Mississippi and increase in magnitude until the big rip occurs

ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for September 30, 2017

What does this increasingly violent daily lurch do to the Earth's plates, which have loosened up and become more fluid lately due to being subjected to the constant jerking of the wobble? Great quakes that affect the globe in its entirety must first occur at one of the brake points in the global mesh of plates. For the Earth, this is primarily the point where the Indo-Australian plate dives under the Himalayas. The Himalayas, the highest mountains in the world, show how often this brake point has been hammered in the past. When this brake point moves, it allows the many compression points in the great Pacific to move. This includes rolling the top portion of S America westward, putting a bowing stress on its long west coast region centered in particular around Santiago, Chile - the site of so many quakes lately.

North Korea, Chinese experts: earthquake "was not caused by a nuclear test"

September 24, 2017

The earthquake recorded yesterday in North Korea, near the site where nuclear tests were conducted, would have been a natural event

The magnitude 3.5 earthquake recorded yesterday in North Korea near the site where nuclear tests were conducted would have been a natural event, not attributable to human activity: Chinese seismic experts explained that, at first, had spoken of a possible "explosion". Following analysis of data and ultrasound, they qualified the event as a natural earthquake. Thus confirmed the initial hypothesis of South Korean analysts.

⚠ # NOW. Detailed information of earthquakes registered in two cities of Paraná. Brazil.

The earthquakes were recorded by the USP Seismology Center in Rio Branco del Sur and San Jerónimo da Serra. No attention was recorded, according to the Fire Department

Two earthquakes were recorded at dawn Monday in two cities of Paraná, according to data from the Center for Seismology of the University of São Paulo (USP).

The first one, registered at 0h16, was 4.5 degrees magnitude with the epicenter in the city of Rio Branco del Sur, about 50 kilometers from Curitiba (the site of the USP came to inform the city of Itaperuçu, but corrected the information by 4.45).

Two minutes later, the second shock, of 5.1 degrees of magnitude reached the city of San Jerónimo de la Sierra, that is to 337 kilometers of the capital.

The depth of the first tremor was 52 kilometers, and the second was 10 kilometers.
