Mysterious earthquake swarm and big earth cracks reported in Galati, Eastern Romania


 

 

 

ER reports that for a couple of weeks, an unusual earthquake swarm is going on in Eastern Romania, Galati province, close to Moldovia border. Additionally, a constant sound like boiling water, a strange water smell like sulfur and big cracks in the ground are reported.

 

The quakes have an extremely shallow depth, have a relatively high shaking intensity and are causing a lot of damage in the villages near the epicenter areas.

 

Residents and seismologists are very surprised and are trying to understand what is happening. Oil extraction and flooding where initially mentioned as possible triggers but these reasons cannot explain why some other phenomenon like: a constant sound like “boiling water” (coming from the ground) and a strange water smell (like sulfur) is being noticed.

 

Some people are not waiting for more earthquakes and left their houses due do the damage, fearing a collapse if further quakes would strike.

 

Another reason the people are scared of are the big cracks appearing in the ground.

There is no question that the seismic activity is caused by flood or oil exploitation,” said Mihnea Costoiu, Minister for Higher Education, Scientific Research and Technological Development. Scientists are saying that there was surely no big historic earthquake in the Galati area.

 

Although scientists are absolutely not sure about what will happening in the near future, they are trying to prevent panic in the affected villages.

 

The affected population are upset about the lack of information from the authorities and the scientists. Romanian TV stations are reporting on the phenoments with a number of LIVE reports.

Earth Shaken: flurry of powerful earthquakes rattle eastern region of the planet


Eastern Shake Up 2
Earth reeling from tremors in the East: Massive earthquakes have hit Iran/Pakistan, the Kuril Islands, Papua, NG, the Japanese Islands, Uganda, and Sichuan China, where more than 203 people have been killed in a 6.6 magnitude earthquake.
April 20, 2013SICHUAN, CHINA – A strong 6.6 magnitude earthquake hit a remote, mostly rural and mountainous area of southwestern China’s Sichuan province on Saturday, killing at least 203 people and injuring about 11,500 close to where a big quake killed almost 70,000 people in 2008. The earthquake, China’s worst in three years, occurred at 8.02 a.m. (0002 GMT) in Lushan county near Ya’an city and the epicenter had a depth of 12 km (7.5 miles), the U.S. Geological Survey said. The quake was felt by residents in neighboring provinces and in the provincial capital of Chengdu, causing many people to rush out of buildings, according to accounts on China’s Twitter-like Sina Weibo microblogging service. State media said 156 people had been confirmed dead with more than 5,500 injured. President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang said all efforts must be put into rescuing victims to limit the death toll. After arriving at the disaster zone by helicopter, Li directed earthquake relief efforts from a plaza in Longmen Township in Lushan, Xinhua said. Li asked that a road be opened to Baoxing County, one of the most affected by the earthquake, and that rescuers “act quickly” in their efforts, Xinhua quoted Li as saying. “The current most urgent issue is grasping the first 24 hours since the quake’s occurrence, the golden time for saving lives,” Xinhua news agency quoted Li as saying earlier. Xinhua said 6,000 troops were heading to the area to help with rescue efforts. State television CCTV said only emergency vehicles were being allowed into Ya’an, though Chengdu airport had reopened. Most of the deaths were concentrated in Lushan, where water and electricity were cut off. Pictures on Chinese news sites showed toppled buildings and people in bloodied bandages being treated in tents outside the hospital, which appeared only lightly damaged. Rescuers in Lushan had pulled 32 survivors out of rubble, Xinhua said. In villages closest to the epicenter, almost all low rise houses and buildings had collapsed, according to footage broadcast on state television. “We are very busy right now, there are about eight or nine injured people, the doctors are handling the cases,” said a doctor at a Ya’an hospital who gave her family name as Liu. The hospital was seeing head and leg injuries, she added. The China Meteorological Association warned of a possibility of landslides occurring in Lushan county on Saturday and Sunday, the agency said in a statement on its website. A resident in Chengdu, 140 km (85 miles) from Ya’an city, told Xinhua he was on the 13th floor of a building when he felt the quake. The building shook for about 20 seconds and he saw tiles fall from nearby buildings. Ya’an is a city of 1.5 million people and is considered one of the birthplaces of Chinese tea culture. It is also the home to one of China’s main centers for protecting the giant panda. “There are still shakes and tremors and our area is safe. The pandas are safe,” said a spokesman with Ya’an’s Bifengxia nature park, a tourism park that houses more than 100 pandas. Shouts and screams were heard in the background while Reuters was on the telephone with the spokesman. “There was just an aftershock, an aftershock, our office is safe,” he said. Numerous aftershocks jolted the area, the largest of which was magnitude 5.1. Sichuan is one of the four major natural-gas-producing provinces in China, and its output accounts for about 14 percent of the nation’s total. The U.S. Geological Survey initially put the magnitude at 7, but later revised it down. The devastating May 2008 quake was 7.9 magnitude. –Reuters

Nuclear Power and Earthquakes
Why is a geologist interested in nuclear plants? Listen to Fairewinds Board member geologist Dr. Les Kanat talk with nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen and show host Kevin Hurley about seismological events in relation to nuclear power. Why do east coast nuclear plants have higher Core Damage Frequencies and are more likely to be damaged from an earthquake than those in California? Do corporate economic concerns mean that nuclear plants are not designed to handle the worst ‘quake? Tune in and discover what the NRC has identified as the most dangerous plant in America.
http://www.fairewinds.org/content/nuc…

Dr. Chris Busby makes a VERY BRILLIANT COUNTER POINT TO ALL OF THIS RHETORIC about nuclear power plant safety and nuclear storage for the Real Long Term. I’ve used Dr. Busby’s Great 3 and a half minute common sense discussion in several videos before, but it really drives the point home WHY we should ABOLISH ALL NUCLEAR ENERGY POWER PLANTS NOW ! And why continuing to produce nuclear waste and nuclear energy is So So So destructive. (understatement emphasized).

AND, of course, as I’m writing this description box, look what comes into my inbox:

The Whole Agenda: Robert Peppino with Guest Stan Deyo


Stan Deyo’s a leading expert in earth changes, space weather and aliens in bible prophecy. In the first half of the show he covers serious changes occurring in with the tectonic plates, especially the Indo-Australian, Central and So. American plates. Stan talks about USGS cover-up’s, his opinion on why we’re seeing so many incoming meteors, alien Papal prophecy, Ancient Egyptian archaeology and more.

Disclaimer: Deyo takes more of a fundamentalist fear-mongering deciphering to current events, which is where we part ways. Even tho it’s entertaining to listen to, I don’t agree with his spiritual perceptions or theory’s based on biblical prophecy in the second half.

IMO taking the bible literally has been humanity’s downfall, it’s a book of metaphors and symbolism.ALL passages need decoding. IMO the anti-Christ/ego lives within everyone allowing the collective Shadow Ego to rule society and the collective mind. Until we deal with OUR egos; hate, greed and division will rule as anti-Christ energy.

The return of Christ IS happening in US as we deny ego based desires of the flesh, and by embodying the teachings of Christ.  The Second Coming is not going to happen by worshiping,following or seeking Saviors in the outer world, God/Source/Creator ONLY dwell’s within our hearts ~ She/He/It does not exist in the outer world. Enjoy!

Episode 100 air date March 14th, 2013

The United Knowledge from youtube (aka Bending Light on GLP) joins us for a discussion of boom events from a historical perspective, relations to other booms via news reports, birds dropping from the sky, buoy data, earthquakes, and sun activity all occurring around the same time each year. What does it mean? In a nutshell, a possible New Madrid adjustment could be in the works. There are key indicators that will likely increase prior to such an event.

Recent event March 13, 2013: http://tiverton.patch.com/articles/ne…

“An earthquake in upstate New York could be to blame for the mysterious house-shaking boom that residents across Tiverton, Little Compton and Westport reported feeling on Wednesday night. At approximately 8:40 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13, residents across the region dialed 911 to inform their local police station of a strange, earth-shaking phenomenon. Homeowners from Crandall Road in Tiverton down to the Little Compton Commons reported feeling a brief earth-shaking boom. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) a 2.3 magnitude earthquake was recorded in Indian Lake, New York – a short distance from the Vermont-New York state line.
On the government website, readers as far as Tiverton, Little Compton and Westport reported feeling after shocks from the quake.”

The True Extent of Manmade Environmental Destruction in America


Warning: This is very disturbing data, it’s not to meant to generate fear. Just awareness of exactly what people living on the mainland are up against in terms of concentrations of EPA toxic dump sites, fracking (crustal fracturing) operations and injection wells. If you can leave the mainland, it’s highly advisable at this critical juncture in the cycle of earth changes. Much love, please be safe…Annette

Indo-Australian plate adjustments connected to Lower Americas 6 times in a row! Ongoing sequence!


People in the alternative community have been predicting a major shift in the Indo-Australian plate for some time, here’s the proof somethings happening. Our job is to send balancing, soothing Light energy focused on the affected regions to help Gaia move through the shift with ease without a cataclysmic event. If all of humanity were awakened, it would be a much smoother transition with everyone focusing loving intentions on the planet.

Lance works hard to present factual data to support his work, yet the disinfo trolls give him a rough time…so he goes the extra mile to prove his point.

The Twin 8+ earthquakes that hit Sumatra, Indonesia April 11th, 2012 triggered a global chain reaction, that was scientifically admitted and sources are given.
By using the April 11th, 2012 Sumatra event as a background basis of an already scientifically admitted occurrence of the Indo-Australian plate triggering global seismic transference basically this video covers a plate movement sequence that has indeed been ongoing all originating from that very region.
There’s a pending Indo-Australian plate adjustment that’s nearing being there’s been ongoing minor adjustments since last April, what does that mean and what does that mean for the Lower Americas.. well the data speaks for itself.

This is an in depth review of all the media reports covering “Booms and shaking” that have been increasing December and January.
Tons of data and tons upon tons of evidence showing we aren’t being told the truth.
I start off by showing an article directly from USGS whom has written about “BOOMs”.. here’s the link:

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/topi…

They even call it “Earthquake booms”, that there are indeed geological booms but even they aren’t quite sure the dynamics behind them.

So I get into the data that shows how what’s been going on for the Eastern half of America has been geological.

Manmade Quakes Shaking Monster La. Sinkhole Area for Days


Wednesday, February 6, 2013

A Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI) scientist has confirmed above-normal seismic activity for several days in the Louisiana’s giant collapsing salt dome area Bayou Corne “sinkhole” disaster site where thousands of quakes have rocked nearby Cajun communities since May.

Experts are researching the cause of days of recent quakes near Louisiana’s historical collapsing 1-mile by 3-Napoleonville Salt Dome’s “sinkhole” in Assumption Parish, according to “news” reports.

Experts have been researching the cause of these quakes in that began late May over the fossil fuel industry salt dome storage facility where the sinkhole is.

While sinkhole events are occurring throughout the world, the Bayou Corne “sinkhole” has risen to the title of Mother of All Sinkholes. It is unprecedented in its composition of fossil fuels. It is also irreparable, according to some officials. A global call for expertise has yielded no solution to stopping the expanding disaster.

In mid-August, seismologist Dr. Steve Horton told human rights reporter Deborah Dupré that over a thousand quakes had occurred within the first few months of the Bayou Corne disaster, made official on Aug.3 when it prompted a declared state of emergency and a mandatory evacuation.

These quakes have continued, with fluctuating intensity. So has expansion of the “sinkhole,” now approximately nine acres large.

At the time, Horton was the lead seismologist on Louisiana’s Bayou Corne disaster case. His work at University of Memphis involves monitoring the New Madrid fault line for the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Horton attributed the quakes to the fossil fuel industry, manmade.

The official term for such manmade events is Environmental Modification, also simply called ENMOD.

“Have fossil fuel industries in Louisiana, through their ENMODs caused today’s geological instabilities that have resulted in this disaster?” this author asked Horton.

“Possibly – I think that’s a real possibility,’ Horton responded.

“DNR (Department of Natural Resources) – they’re the big players here,” Horton said. “They don’t think the sinkhole caused the bubbles. The bubbles were there before the sinkhole.”

So were the thousands of quakes before the sinkhole developed, according to Horton, who said officials choose to call the small quakes “tremors.”

“On July 24th, the number of quakes went up hundreds or thousands or so a day until August 2nd when they stopped,” said Horton. “The next day, August 3rd, the sinkhole occurred – that morning.”

Since then, a published report showed that drilling wells can cause earthquakes, human-made quakes, the strongest of such quakes associated with deep-injection wastewater disposal wells.

Drilling even simple water wells is directly linked to man-made seismic activity, according to the study.

“Understanding how human-made activity triggers quakes” is important, Cornell University geophysicist Rowena Lohman said, referring to what the UN calls ENMOD techniques.

“‘Environmental modification techniques’ refers to any technique for changing – through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes – the dynamics, composition or structure of the Earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere, or of outer space,” states the Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques. (United Nations, Geneva: 18 May 1977)

Humans dump hazardous waste into Class II injection wells to save money for companies, changing dynamics, composition and structure of the Earth.

Near Louisiana’s Assumption Parish giant expanding sinkhole, Texas Brine company had been authorized by Louisiana’s DNR to inject hazardous waste, including radioactive waste from oil and gas industry operations, into the company’s leased storage well in Napoleonville Salt Dome.

That well had problems in early 2011, was sealed and abandoned. After two months of locals experiencing seismic activities and observing methane bubbles percolating in their beloved nearby bayous last spring, a large sinkhole emerged and has been expanding almost weekly, with chunks of land and swamp trees falling into it.

For decades. the fossil fuel industry has drilled, extracted and piped the oil- and gas-cursed area, devastating the once pristine and peaceful bayous of south Louisiana, Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou.

In Nov., public outrage erupted after learning that only two weeks after the sinkhole appeared and triggered a declared a state emergency, Louisiana’s Department of Natural Resources had issued a permit for deep oil drilling near the sinkhole.

Drilling wells are more likely to cause quakes than fracking, according to Mark Engle, a U.S. Geological Survey research geologist.

By October, scientists were investigating whether Louisiana state-ordered removal of crude and natural gas through hydraulic fracturing of Texas Brine’s failed storage cavern in the Napoleonville Salt Dome might be connected to the quakes that had been more pronounced in the area at that time.

The state Office of Conservation had ordered Texas Brine to pump brine into the cavern to push out the crude oil, that’s now been leaking for six months or more. That pumping process was similar but not the same as fracking.

The outer edge of the salt dome, not just the breached cavern in it, had collapsed due to what Dr. Gary Hecox called a “frack-out,” then saying that it was “just like fracking.”

BP Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe on land

“Because of the logistical challenges of taking images thousands of feet underground, scientists do not know with certainty the condition of the ground under the sinkhole or if other voids exist under the surface that could cause the hole to grow or another hole to form,” reports Houma Today.

Only a few months ago at a public meeting, after a local Homeland Security official said there was justified fear of another sinkhole forming, locals were told that another hole forming was less likely than the existing one to continue expanding.

Officials anticipate that the “sinkhole” could become a chemical lake the size of 30 football fields.

On Aug. 3, the “sinkhole” above the salt dome was reported. Its size was approximately an acre. Today, it is approximately 9 acres.

State officials attribute the disaster to one failed cavern owned by Houston-based Texas Brine LLC that has two storage caverns in the salt dome facility. There are 52 such oil and gas industry caverns in the dome.

Chris Knotts, a Louisiana DNR civil engineer, who was coordinating the science group studying the sinkhole, had said just over three weeks after the sinkhole appeared that, “If it’s a cavern fracture, failure, whatever, there’s little that you can do.

The cavern is fractured. Little done in the area has succeeded in stopping the catastrophe in the making.

Today, not only the salt dome cavern, but also the western edge of the 1-mile by 3-mile Napoleonville Salt Dome is collapsing. That western edge extends 7000 feet below ground, where gas and voids lurk.

Texas Brine’s contracted geophysicist Kevin Hill is creating a three-dimensional seismic image of the ground below the area. To do this, Hill is employing a network of 2,500 devices: air-guns, various vibrating devices and firecracker-sized explosives underground.

These devices will “thump” the area, yet another concern for locals. Can the vulnerable area be thumped much more without catastrophic results?

Previously, the company was ordered to drill investigation wells: “Texas Brine has been ordered to implement these steps as soon as possible and move full-steam ahead,” stated Commissioner of Conservation Jim Welsh in August.

One of those well-drilling missions was aborted after geological events occurred there. Texas Brine had warned that its new drilling as ordered might worsen the situation.

The unstoppable oil and gas industry’s collapsing dome, gulping part of Assumption Parish with it, has been referred to as a BP Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe on land.

Human toll

As in other communties across the nation, the human toll of this historical fossil fuel event is immense and hidden.

For over six months, innocent locals caught in the state-declared emergency area have been under a mandatory evacuation. Many of these energy refugees continue working for their rights to health, security and safety they once knew at home.

Alicia Heilig, a nearby resident, has established and maintains a Bayou Corne Sinkhole Facebook Page. There local concerned citizens are learning and organizing. Most of them agree that government and industry are not protecting them adequately, according to their messages on Facebook and conversations with this author.

Aside from thousands of quakes shaking the ground beneath their homes over the past six months, and gas bubbling nearby, children and parents are reportedly ill from chemicals belching out of the sinkhole area. Little to no medical monitoring is being offered to the bayou residents, despite their pleas for help.

Demonstration of Bayou Corne sinkhole disaster response failing adequate medical monitoring of locals impacted by hazardous chemical release and of inadequately observing right to self-determination. Retired neuroscientist and professor Dr. Paul Brown addressed residents and officials at a public meeting in Nov. after a boat tour of the disaster area. Brown asserted that the level of chemicals being released in the area is posing a human health risk. Credit: Deborah Dupré, YouTube

Natural gas bubbling in those two bayous is now seen in over 30 spots.  After recent heavy rains, the gas was bubbling in the yards of some homes. A bus route was changed late last year after methane was discovered below the neighborhood.

Not only is methane being released. So is hydrogen sulfide. Since at least Oct. 2, other hydrocarbons have also been leaking into the bottom of the cavern in the collpasing salt dome.

Carcinogenic crude oil has now spread as far as half a mile outwards, into the swamps, bayous and communities, as Louisiana Environmental Action Network proved with photographic evidence this week. Its flyover in the video above shows more destruction than recent state official flyovers posted on the parish website dedicated to the disaster.

The possibility of a giant explosion is one reason these refugees remain under the mandatory evacuation, although some choose to remain.

“The hole has also sent naturally occurring petroleum and gas toward the surface, with natural gas accumulating in the area’s aquifer. This creates the potential for the gas to dangerously accumulate in enclosed spaces above the surface.”

At least insurance companies will not cancel the policies of the evacuation resisters, as companies are threatening some who did abide by the evacuation order.

Two or more evacuated residents and parish officials in the past two weeks have said some insurers were not renewing or had threatened not to renew their policies due to their homes being vacated over 30 days.

The Louisiana Department of Insurance is investigating those reports.

Officials will meet with the disaster site locals again Wednesday at 6:00 P.M. at Assumption Parish Community Center, 4910 Highway 308, Napoleonville, LA. There, residents will be updated on this ongoing, man-made environmental and humanitarian catastrophe-in-the-making.
