Fire Earth

Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Dominican Republic Quake Report

Posted by feww on April 3, 2010

Serial No  1,528. If any posts are blocked in your country, please drop us a line.

Correction:

An earlier report of a magnitude 8.0 earthquake in the Dominican Republic that was posted on Fire-Earth was sourced from an automatically generated bulletin broadcast by the European Commission’s Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System – the report now appears to be FALSE

According to other monitoring sources, an 8.0Mw quake has NOT occurred in the region.

Details as they appeared on  EC’s Disaster Website:

    Thanks for this information. I also received the initial message, but further inspection revealed some discrepancies …. invalid time, bad formatting, unreadable characters, etc.
    I suspect that someone hacked into the usgs.gov automated e-mail system.
