Let His Truth Reign
EXCERPT: A tsunami generated by a massive earthquake off Alaska could cause major damage to California’s economy and force 750,000 people to evacuate, a report published Wednesday warned. One third of all boats in California’s marinas could be damaged or sunk, costing some $700 million in losses, while major ports would struggle to get huge cargo vessels out to sea in time to avoid being buffeted by tsunamis. Experts from the US Geological Survey (USGS) based their damage assessment on the scenario of a 9.1 magnitude quake off Alaska’s Pacific Coast, which it said was “hypothetical but plausible.”
ARTICLE: ATHENS - An earthquake shook buildings in the Greek capital on Monday but there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage. A magnitude 4.5 quake struck central Greece just before 1500 GMT and was followed by a stronger tremor, the Athens Geodynamics Institute said. Fire brigade officials said they had not received any calls for assistance. The EMSC registered the earthquake as a 5.0 magnitude event. Greece is often rattled by earthquakes, most causing no serious damage. A 5.9 magnitude quake in 1999 killed 143 people. REUTERS
VERY IMPORTANT ARTICLE, would like to include in this segment.
October 10, 2013 – INDIA - Over 800,000 people may die if an earthquake measuring eight on the Richter scale occurs in the seismically active Himalayan states from Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh, National Disaster Management Authority’s Vice Chairman M. Shashidhar Reddy has warned. The entire Himalayan belt is seismically very active and during a short span of 53 years between 1897 and 1950, four major earthquakes, (Shillong in 1897, Kangra in 1905, Bihar-Nepal in 1934 and Assam in 1950) exceeding magnitude eight on the Richter scale occurred in the region causing vast devastation. “No such earthquake has occurred since 1950. Studies indicate that enough strains have accumulated to generate magnitude 8 or larger earthquakes in the Himalayan region. If an earthquake of magnitude eight occurs in the Himalayan states, eight to nine lakh people may lose their lives,” the NDMA vice chief told PTI. When and where such an earthquake would occur is not known and therefore, the best approach to face such an eventuality was to work for developing an earthquake-resilient society, Reddy said. –India West
EXCERPT: The earthquake was also felt in Athens. Local media in Crete reported some damage to buildings but firefighters in Chania say there was no serious damage and no emergency calls.
The US Geological Survey registered the quake of 6.4 magnitude in the Mediterranean Sea.

EXCERPT: Residents stand next to a long earthen wall which formed following the Oct. 15 earthquake in Barangay Anonang in Inabanga, Bohol. Phivolcs scientists said the wall is the face of a previously unknown fault line which caused the magnitude 7.2 quake
October 24, 2013 – PHILIPPINES – As the magnitude 7.2 earthquake ended on Oct. 15, residents of Sitio Kumayot in Barangay Anonang heard an explosive sound like a thunderclap. Villagers watched in horrified disbelief as the ground cracked open and, with smoke and the stench of sulphur spreading, one side started to rise.
MANILA-- Four people died as a sinkhole “swallowed” a house in Brgy. Ubojan, Antequerra, Bohol. Sinkholes appeared in different parts of the province after the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that hit the Visayas last October 15. The house belonged to the Barace family. Two members of the family survived the incident. Saturnino Barace Jr., one of the survivors, waited for six hours before he was rescued. Half of his body was trapped in the rubble left behind by the sinkhole. Relatives of the the family started unearthing the victims’ bodies. Authorities have reportedly put the area under surveillance as there are other cracks found near the area of the sinkhole. Despite what happened, the remaining members of the Barace family are planning to return to the area. ABS.CBN News

EXCERPT: November 19, 2013 – SOUTH AMERICA - Scotia Sea earthquakes on the move. On the heels of a 5.0 magnitude quake along the Scotia tectonic plates, a 7.8 M quake shook things up further, however, no damage has been reported. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reports all earthquake activity with a bare bones description of the activity. Reports of damage caused by quakes are typically covered by other new agencies and geologic societies. The Scotia Sea is the area of water, typically cold and stormy, between the lands of South America, and the islands that make up Tierra de Fuego, near Argentina. The Drake Passage borders it. Some other lands affected are South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (SGSSI), which are British Territory. The damage could have been worse for those land masses above the South Scotia Ridge, but for now there are no significant reports of major geological disturbances. The most recent Scotia Sea earthquake was reported by the USGS to have occurred as the result of either left-lateral strike slip faulting on an east-west oriented plane, or right-lateral faulting on a north-south plane.

ARTICLE: December 23, 2013 – CANARY ISLANDS - The new earthquake swarm under the island’s central-SE sector continues. So far, about 120 quakes of magnitudes above 1.8 including a handful of possibly felt ones (up to magnitudes 3.2) have occurred since yesterday morning. Preliminary GPS data suggest a new phase of uplift has started as well, which supports the idea that a new magma intrusion is occurring at the base of the upper crust beneath the volcanic island. A new earthquake swarm started under the island on December 22nd. The earthquakes are located at about 15 km depth under the southeastern central part of the island. IGN recorded more than 40 quakes with magnitudes up to 3.2 so far. Whether the earthquakes are related to new magmatic intrusions at depth is a unknown but a possible scenario. –Volcano Discovery
ARTICLE AND LINK: December 27, 2013 – CANARY ISLANDS – Although earthquakes have largely ceased for the moment, the island experiences ongoing rapid inflation and harmonic tremor, both signs that an eruption could be imminent. The inflation in the SE part near El Pinar and La Restinga has reached almost 10 cm in just a few days by now. Instead of new earthquakes, harmonic tremor (steady low-frequency ground vibration) has appeared 2 days ago and since then been gradually increasing. Both observations, as well as some single long-period earthquakes in the past days, are indicators of magma moving into the system and pressurizing it. This means that the scenario of a new eruption has become more and more likely. It is impossible to say whether and when a new eruption will occur, but it could happen quickly any time. It would probably begin with a series of stronger earthquakes to open up a conduit. Based on the inflation and earthquake patterns, the most likely area would be near the 2011 vent near La Restinga, perhaps even on land. In this case, La Restinga would be the village most at risk. The previously detected very high Radon gas emission values also suggest the presence of new magma and pose a health risk particularly in closed low-lying rooms of buildings especially in southern El Hierro. –Volcano Discovery
December 30, 2013 – NAPLES, IT – A 5.2-magnitude earthquake (USGS) Sunday evening rocked much of southern Italy, sending frightened people into the streets of Naples and country towns. Naples Mayor Luigi de Magistris said there were no reports of damage in the city, the largest in Italy’s south. In Piedimonte Matese, a small town near the epicenter, Mayor Vincenzo Cappello told Sky TG24 there were no injuries and no major structural damage, although some buildings may have suffered minor damage. Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology said the quake at 6:08 p.m. (1708 GMT) had a magnitude of 4.9 and struck some 10.5 kilometers (6.5 miles) underground. Its epicenter was roughly 35 miles northeast of Naples. The Italian news agency LaPresse said the earth shook as far away as Puglia, in the southeastern heel of the boot-shaped peninsula. SkyTG24 TV reported that some people in Naples and elsewhere decided as a precaution to sleep in their cars Sunday night as aftershocks of much lesser intensity rattled the area. Naples suffered a devastating quake in 1980. In the neighboring region of Molise, an earthquake in 2002 caused the collapse of a shoddily constructed school, killing 27 students and a teacher. –Weather

Should Scientists Probe the Massive Volcano Under Naples?...VIDEO AT THIS NEXT LINK:

ARTICLE: December 5, 2013 – NAPLES, Italy – Mount Vesuvius, a volcano near the Bay of Naples in Italy, is hundreds of thousands of years old and has erupted more than 50 times. Its most famous eruption took place in the year 79 A.D., when the volcano buried the ancient Roman city of Pompeii under a thick carpet of volcanic ash. The dust “poured across the land” like a flood, one witness wrote, and shrouded the city in “a darkness…like the black of closed and unlighted rooms.” Two thousand people died, and the city was abandoned for almost as many years. The blast sent a plume of ashes, pumice and other rocks, and scorching-hot volcanic gases so high into the sky that people could see it for hundreds of miles around. As it cooled, this tower of debris drifted to earth: first the fine-grained ash, then the lightweight chunks of pumice and other rocks. It was terrifying–“I believed I was perishing with the world,” Pliny wrote, “and the world with me”–but not yet lethal: Most Pompeiians had plenty of time to flee. For those who stayed behind, however, conditions soon grew worse. As more and more ash fell, it clogged the air, making it difficult to breathe. Buildings collapsed. Then, a “pyroclastic surge”–a 100-miles-per-hour surge of superheated poison gas and pulverized rock–poured down the side of the mountain and swallowed everything and everyone in its path. –History
EXCERPT: A cluster of earthquakes around the world hit just before the third anniversary of the devastating 9.0 Kobe earthquake that set off a Pacific-wide tsunami causing widespread destruction from Japan to California, and triggered a nuclear meltdown in 2011.
The first quake, a 6.8 off the Eureka coast on Sunday night caused little to no damage, but shook homes and rattled nerves around Northern California. Dozens of aftershocks, some approaching a magnitude 5 continue to move the San Andreas fault.
Another quake, initially a 6.8 magnitude as well, but later downgraded to a 6.4 hit Monday near the Sandwich Islands in the southern Atlantic.
A 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit Monday north of Papua, New Guinea along the Pacific “Ring of Fire.”
