Earthquake Drills: Cover-up Showing Their Hand?

An increasing number of earthquake drills are being conducted in the U.S., many in areas that rarely experience violent quakes.

What originated as an earthquake drill for Southern California has mushroomed into an international organization for earthquake preparedness.  Since 2008, similarly branded "Great ShakeOuts" have sprouted up in 17 states, as well as Guam, British Columbia and New Zealand.

Guised as a public safety collaborative and endorsed by governmental agencies including USGS and FEMA, participation in regional "Great ShakeOuts" has conspicuously increased in U.S. regions with scant histories of destructive seismic activity.  Participation in these organized "ShakeOuts" has surged from 5.3 million people in 2008 to nearly 12.4 million in 2011.

Although states such as California and Oregon seem appropriate participants based on their seismic histories, the entire central U.S. has only experienced a few moderate quakes over 5.0 in the past 200 years.  While the pending catastrophic New Madrid adjustment has been well-known to the Establishment for many years via ZetaTalk, the sudden urgency for conducting such large scale earthquake drills didn't emerge in this region until 2011.

In 2011, the first "Great Central US ShakeOut" was orchestrated across all states in the New Madrid region: Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and in 2012 included the southeastern states of Georgia and South Carolina.  Although a study conducted by FEMA in 2008 examined the impact of a 7.7 magnitude quake on states within the New Madrid Seismic Zone, from a historical perspective, the only impetus for this study was the great New Madrid quakes of 1811 and 1812.  When compared to the violent seismicity of the western U.S., such prolific earthquake drills in regions that are not seismically active begs the question: why?

For readers of ZetaTalk, the answer clear.  For the vast majority of unsuspecting Americans living in seismically docile regions, suddenly being urged to practice "Drop, Cover, Hold" must seem like an unnecessary and incongruous safety exercise.  Thus, the arm of the cover-up is showing their hand in that they're demonstrating they know unbridled disaster is pending for the New Madrid region, and likewise cannot reveal how this came to their attention.

In addition to the U.S., earthquake and tsunami drills are on the increase around the world, as well as news releases from governmental agencies such as FEMA warning residents to be prepared for unexpected calamity.  As the Zetas explained, such warnings are merely provided to relieve these agencies of any responsibility when the calamities finally arrive.

"They are planning on putting the responsibility of survival on each citizen, on each family, and then they are on their own. 'Do you not have a Family Emergency Plan? Tisk. We told you to have one!' This will be the attitude of the establishment when such emergencies do arrive. We have advised that families plan to leave the cities, and have a place to go when the time arrives, a rural area, where they have established contacts at a minimum. You will be on your own when the time comes, and it may come sooner than you think. Are you ready?"  ZetaTalk

The pocket money will dry up. But the skill will stick. Food for thought. Literally.

Darlene,

Fear not. It's sabre rattling. (There's Ztalk about it.)  Stay away from the rattle and indulge in the pleasure of growing salads in plastic pots like I do. And teach your kids - kids seem to love the exercise when they think they can sell the produce to the neighbors for pocket money.

Duck and cover was also a nuclear bomb exercise taught to children in the case of a nuclear attack. The propaganda concerning IRan and ISrael is very troubling.

good luck to everyone, hold onto your hats and stay safe
