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

M7.1 Quake Strikes Eastern Honshu, Japan

Posted by feww on April 11, 2011


Powerful Quake Strikes Eastern Honshu on One-Month Anniversary of  Great East Japan Earthquake


The quake measuring 7.1Mw struck at a depth of 10km about 160 km NNE of Tokyo, and 37km W of Iwaki city in Fukushima prefecture.

The powerful quake shook buildings in Tokyo and a large area of eastern Honshu, Japan’s main island.

Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) reported the earthquake details as follows:

Occurred at (JST) Latitude
Depth Magnitude Region Name
17:16 JST 11 Apr 2011 36.9N 140.7E 10 km 7.1 Fukushima-ken Hamadori

Significant Aftershocks

As of 12:00UTC

Fukushima Nuclear Disaster

The powerful quake, which was followed by a tsunami warning, forced technicians to flee the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi NPP. The latest shock struck amid reports that Japanese authorities were considering to extend the evacuation zone around NPP because of “prolonged exposure to radiation” in several areas.

The villages and towns outside the 20 km evacuation zone that have accumulated radiation will be evacuated, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano Edano said at a daily news conference.

The decision to enlarge the evacuation zone around the Fukushima plant is “based on data analysis of accumulated radiation exposure information,” he said.

“These new evacuation plans are meant to ensure safety against risks of living there for half a year or one year,” he said, adding that there was no need for immediate evacuations.

Japan’s Triple Disaster: Human Cost

  • Official Death Toll: 13,127
  • Missing:  14,348
  • Homeless: At least 155,000
  • Others: In addition to the above, an unknown number of people in remote areas may have perished, but no records are available as of posting.

Global Tectonics Alert – April 9

Posted by feww on April 9, 2011


This is an amendment to an earlier release dated April 8, 2011

Japan Earthquake Forecast

FIRE-EARTH estimates that about 80 exajoules (EJ) of tectonic stress energy could be accumulated in Japan Region between now and early 2016.

Most of the energy is forecast to be released as large earthquakes including a massive shock, a Megathrust earthquake, the largest on record, measuring 10.0+Mw releasing about 64EJ of energy.

[NOTE: The 1960 Valdivia earthquake (The Great Chilean Earthquake) is the largest ever earthquake recorded measuring 9.5Mw. The quake struck on May 22, 1960 at 38.29ºS, 73.0ºW. Seismic moment release: ~ 11.3 EJ]

Japan Trench Mega Thrust Earthquake No. 1 (JPTRMT1)  could break up the Honshu island into some half dozen fragments and scores of smaller splinters. [An impression depicting the new geography of the islands may be posted later.]

The Megashock could trigger a colossal tsunami completely submerging coastal areas around the Pacific Ocean, and traveling many miles inland.

JPTRMT1 could trigger multiple volcanic eruptions throughout Japan Region and rest of the western half of the PRF, as far away as in Alaska, the Philippines, Indonesia, PNG, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand and rest of the South Pacific region. [Groups J, H, K and L on the map below.

The 10.0+Mw Megashock, its massive aftershocks, the spawned mountainous tsunamis and the multiple volcanic eruptions would cause  death and destruction on unprecedented scales throughout the Pacific Rim countries and beyond.

The impact of the volcanic eruptions would affect the entire world, resulting in severe climatic episodes, major losses of crops, famine and exacerbate mass dieoffs, which may have already started as a result of drought and deluge and other collapse mechanisms.

Forecast Details

  • Name Assigned by FIRE-EARTH: Japan Trench Mega Thrust Earthquake No. 1 (JPTRMT1)
  • Location: Near the East Coast of Honshu, Japan
  • Depth: ~ 26km
  • Magnitude: 10.0+Mw
  • Energy released: ~ 64EJ
  • Largest Aftershocks:  ~ 9.0 Mw
  • JPTRMT1 and its Massive aftershocks would trigger dozens of colossal super tsunamis.
  • The unprecedented super seismic episode could trigger between 40 and 80 volcanoes to erupt simultaneously, shortly after the mainshock strikes.
  • Millions of people could perish within the first few hours, and hundreds of millions more left without clean water, food, or shelter, as a result of the events.

Alaska Update [15:00UTC]

FIRE-EARTH Model shows continued buildup of tectonic stress energy near the coast of Alaska.

Japan Earthquake Forecasts



The earthquakes could potentially rip through one or more of Japan’s nuclear power plants creating  a radioactive hell.

Japan MUST ACT NOW to prevent further RADIOACTIVE NIGHTMARES by decommissioning all of its nuclear reactors at war speed.
