There has been much made of an earthquake in the recent past long the New Madrid fault line, as this was unexpected, being in a quiescent area, and thus raised all manner of questions regarding the possibility of massive earthquakes in areas presumed to be safe. Simply put, there are no earthquake free areas, and during the coming pole shift, all parts of the globe will be subject to them, without exception. Thus, individuals living in areas which have never experienced an earthquake should not presume safety but should take the same steps in preparing for the pole shift that those living atop highly active fault lines take - stay out of old or masonry buildings, and anticipate earthquakes as severe as any that mankind has ever experienced and noted.


Our description on the pole shift itself describes not a single jolt when the crust stops moving but a series of jolts. Most severe earthquakes are like this, in fact, if one examines their pattern. There are small quakes ahead of time, swarms, and jiggling that unsettles people as they sense something is pending. Then when the rock fingers that are preventing the fault line from sliding or subducting suddenly break, a large jolt. This often, within minutes, results in more jolts as the pressure that was at one point now moves to be pressure at the next point where rock fingers are holding the slippage. Aftershocks result, as yet more rock fingers break, until a point arrives where there is so much resistance to slippage that the quake and its after effects is considered complete. 

For the New Madrid, which will include the European tsunami in its effects, there will be one large jolt with a subsequent and almost immediate tearing of the Atlantic. We have stated that the European tsunami will be the largest, but smaller ones will follow in time. Likewise for the New Madrid adjustment, which involve a tearing of the entire N American continent from the seaway down to Mexico. This adjustment will not occur until minor rock fingers have been steadily broken in a number of places. The areas to be affected have already been experiencing quake swarms, buckling roadways, sinkholes, breaking dams, and unsettling jigging which is unexplained by the authorities. When the primary blockage gives, there will be a huge jolt, with little warning. Aftershocks will continue until the time of the pole shift itself.

It is known by man that the New Madrid Fault line runs beyond the immediate area of New Madrid. When we stated that "Chicago will rupture and adjust" and "Ohio will be pulled in places" this should not be news to man. The New Madrid runs up along the Seaway, to the mouth of the Seaway, and thus will rupture any land it passes through. Plot its course and consider that more than the fault line itself will be disrupted. Rock detached from its former connections is free to react to the dominant theme in the area. If rock was held down, formerly, it can bounce up. If rock was held back, it is free to spring forward. And adjustment in rock strata means that loose soil will sink or heave. This most certainly can affect a broader area than just the fault line. We have stated that Ohio will be affected most in this regard. These matters are related to the rock strata, which bonds or breaks, as we have stated. There is a natural break in the rock strata holding Ohio, along the Ohio River and into its headwaters, as can be seen. Why should Chicago be affected? There is a natural break in the rock strata between the New Madrid and Chicago also, a weakness, which will rupture with the New Madrid. When the Seaway pulls apart there will be a dropin support formerly present during rock attachments. Chicago has long been predicted, by ourselves and others, to be devastated. Much of the infrastructure will rupture, causing buildings to crumble and freeways to be worthless and irreparable. One need only follow the geology of the region, to predict what will happen.

ZetaTalk ™ 2010

During the 7 of 10 New Madrid adjustment the Seaway will be affected, as we mentioned earlier. It will not tear open to the degree we predicted for the pole shift itself, but weak points along the Seaway will adjust. During the 7 of 10 Duluth will find crevasses nearby, similar to the crevasse that has occurred recently in the Michigan Penninsula, but with greater depth and scope. Inland locks along the Seaway will break. Detroit and Toronto will be unaffected during the 7 of 10 except of course for earthquake damage. As the New Madrid fault line runs up along the Seaway just under the Great lakes in Ohio, cities such as Cleveland and Toledo will find their infrastructure greatly shattered in places as the rock beneath them will jut and drop, vertical adjustments. Buffalo, being virtually on the fault line, will likewise be shattered in this way, such that freeways become useless, but the seaway at Niagara Falls will remain.

ZetaTalk ™ 2010

As both sides of the New Madrid Fault Line are pulled in opposite directions, the entire fault line operates as a slip-slide fault line. In that the land just to the west of the Mississippi River moves the greatest distance, to ease the pressure on the bow currently formed by the N American continent, this creates a void, a stretch zone void, causing the land there to drop, as we have explained. This is the region currently experiencing precursor earthquakes, the region considered the New Madrid region. But the movement is not yet happening, the void not yet being created. Instead, occasional slight slip-slide adjustments are being made, deep within the rock strata, causing minor quake swarms or sympathetic jolts in neighboring areas. The rock fingers are slipping, but not losing their grip. 

When the plate tearing starts in earnest, these slip-slide jolts will be huge, and rise up to the magnitude 8-9 range, as we have stated. These quakes will ride up to the bend in the fault line just south of Lake Michigan. Earthquake damage is primarily done when the rock close to the surface is affected, as is known by man. The quality of the rock along the fault line thus affects the shaking and resulting damage to the surface. A glance at a map of the geology of the fault line shows that the rock along the Mississippi at Arkansas and Missouri is younger, laid down by sediment, and tends to fracture broadly, thus relaying earthquake jolts over a vast area. Broad fractures also cause post quake adjustments, so the quake includes rock shuffling, all of which translates to a larger magnitude for the area. Thus, the worst of the New Madrid adjustment will be felt in this area. 

The rock strata that hold Illinois and Indiana is older, and more solid. Fracturing of the rock tends to be a single jolt, not the multiple ricocheting jolts that magnify any adjustment in the rock strata experienced by the rock strata in Arkansas and Missouri. The magnitude will still be considered high, perhaps an 8, but the shaking will not last as long, and the damage therefore not as great. Were the bend in the fault line just south of Lake Michigan not at a point where the southeastern part of the US is dropping away from the Seaway, the damage along the Seaway would be much greater. The Equator is expanding in the center of the Atlantic, and has already, by this time, ripped open between S America and Africa. The southeast thus drops toward this void, relieving pressure and friction along the slip-slide in the fault line as it runs under the Seaway. 

By the time the New Madrid adjustment reaches the bend, land to the west of the Mississippi has already dropped, pulled away, but this actually puts more pressure on the fault line as it runs under Michigan. This holds, momentarily, while the southeast starts to drop toward the Atlantic Rift, and then pulls apart sharply. Here, beneath Michigan, the jolts will also not last for long, and will also be considered up to magnitude 8. The fault line thence along the Seaway will unzip, along rock strata borders already established. Where stretch zones such as this normally have adjustments that are basically silent, they do much damage. The unzipping creates crevasses and landslides and sinkholes, and when this occurs under cities is devastating. The quakes will be considered much less than magnitude 8 but the damage will be greater, with consequent lost of life and infrastructure. A building that has collapsed because of a large jolt is no different than one that has collapsed because the ground beneath it sank.

As is known, there is a fault line running up along the East Coast of the US that attaches to the New Madrid fault line in the Gulf. Both fault lines touch there, in the Gulf, and when the New Madrid adjusts there is a sympathetic adjustment up along this fault line. During the last New Madrid adjustment, church bells rang in Boston and cracks appeared in buildings in Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC. These changes are caused by earthquakes equivalent to a magnitude 4-5 or less, not serious.

Watch the waves from the M5.7 Utah earthquake roll across seismic stations in North America!   3/18/2020
This animation, called a Ground Motion Visualization (GMV), shows the motion of the ground as detected on USArray seismometers - each dot is a seismic station and when the ground moves up it turns red and when it moves down it turns blue.

Waves generated by an earthquake travel around and through the earth, but they get smaller (attenuate) as they move away from the earthquake location, just like ripples in a pond. Once the earthquake waves are far enough away from the location where the earthquake occurred they can no longer be felt by people, BUT they can still be detected by sensitive seismic instruments. That's what this animation is showing - the very, very small waves from the M5.7 earthquake traveling both through the earth and across earth's surface - in most of the US the waves are much too small to feel but not too small to measure. The scale is along the bottom. It is in micrometers (microns). For reference, the diameter of a human hair is ~50-75 microns.

Some of the instruments look like they are experiencing shaking before the seismic waves arrive. This is due to the setting of the animation and the calibration of the seismic instrument.

This particular GMV is a brand new beta product generated using the vertical component of our Ground Motion Visualization (GMV). To produce a better coverage, the video is based on all available stations from any FDSN data center, using the fedcatalog service ( The video uses the available BHZ, LHZ, or HHZ channel to produce the video, therefore provides a better coverage.

'The first one was insane': 5.7 earthquake hits near Magna

- Mar. 18, 2020
SALT LAKE CITY — A strong earthquake shook homes from Spanish Fork to Logan on Wednesday.

A 5.7 magnitude quake happened just about 7:10 a.m. with the epicenter just north of Magna, between the city and Antelope Island, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

There was no immediate reports of damage, but residents across Salt Lake County reported feeling their homes shake. Some reported the shaking lasted as long as 15 seconds.

Azur Timmerman, 24, and her wife, Tara, were getting ready for work when the quake began rattling their home in far west West Valley City, near the estimated epicenter of the earthquake.

”The first one was insane,” Timmerman said. “The shaking didn’t stop for maybe 45 seconds.”

Rocky Mountain Power tweeted just before 8 a.m. “We are aware of large scale power outage in the Salt Lake Valley Area impacting approximately 32,000 customers. We currently are assessing damages and will restore power as soon as possible.”

The Utah Transit Authority announced that as of 8 a.m., “all trains (TRAX and FrontRunner) are halting service until further notice. We are working with power companies to restore power and have crews evaluating our rails for damage.”

Timmerman said she grabbed Tara, and they stood in a doorway until the shaking stopped.

”We thought, ‘Is this an earthquake and is the world ending?” she said, laughing.

”Things were falling off the walls,” she said. “Our family photos and porcelain statues on shelves all got knocked off the walls and broke on the tile floor.”

Multiple smaller aftershocks were felt, mainly by residents in the northwest portion of Salt Lake County.

Bluff in Alton along Mississippi River partially collapses

Posted on Jan 21, 2020

ALTON, Ill. ( -- A 200-foot bluff in Alton partially collapsed Tuesday taking out part of a wall that’s an iconic gathering spot because of its view of the Mississippi River.

The bluff is at the west end of Alton above the Great River Road.

Many people in the area have a connection to the viewing spot at the edge of Riverview Park.

“I got married in the gazebo and took pictures all along that wall, so many people have,” Robert Schubert said. “It’s an important icon for the city and the neighborhood.”

The collapse happened sometime late Sunday or early Monday. But the trouble began last summer when some of the soil slid during the heavy rains that caused flooding in the area.

“We were notified in July and we put some sandbags in to try to deflect the water away from the wall in case it were to rain again,” Public Works Director Bob Barnhart said.

The city said the closest home to the bluff is not in any danger. The city had been working on a plan to stabilize the side of the bluff.

"I know there's a lot of people worried they've been taking a little too long to figure out which direction they wanted to go,” Schubert said.

For now the city plans to remove the loose soil that remains on the side of the steep hill to stabilize it and prevent further unpredictable and dangerous collapsing. But any long term solution will be dangerous, specialized work and won't come cheap.

"There's costs ranging from almost $400,000 to over $1 million," Barnhart said.

The city hopes that FEMA will cover most of the cost.

Ameren Illinois relocated overhead power lines partly to get them out of the way of crews coming to stabilize the hillside and partly so they won’t be taken out if more of the bluff sides away.

There is a business at the bottom of the bluff. The city is working to protect Abbot Machine Company if more of the hillside falls away.

“What we’ll do is try to extract the soil at the top and anything that falls will be contained in that area and not on that business,” Barnhart said.

Coincidentally the city council planned to take up this issue at a Tuesday night’s meeting. They'll use it to green light the emergency stabilization work.

The children all get the entire house and ground shake and the animals all began making noise.

Epicenter is a mile from my house on my running route. The entire house shook and dogs went crazy and all the kids were screaming, “earthquake!” It was quite loud and lasted a bit.

3.8 magnitude earthquake felt in East Tennessee

FINCASTLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A 3.8 magnitude earthquake was felt in East Tennessee on Monday afternoon.

The United States Geological Survey said the earthquake was recorded near Fincastle in Campbell County at 1:12 p.m. CST. The preliminary depth was measured at 35.4 kilometers, which is considered a shallow earthquake by USGA.

The earthquake was felt around East Tennessee and southern Kentucky. It was the second earthquake to hit the area in two days. On Sunday, USGA reported a 2.8 earthquake in the area

Earthquakes Keep Hitting Near Cleveland Salt Mine That Runs UNDER LAKE ERIE 

Dec 11, 2019  Over the past week this area has seen several quakes. It started on the 7th and continues up to today. The quakes are happening in an area just southwest of the entry to the nearby salt mine. Even if they are not causing the quakes, they could eventually effect the region. A collapse of the salt mine under Lake Erie would be a disaster!
