Another M6.5 Quake Strikes New Zealand

Posted by feww on August 16, 2013

Strong quake strikes near Blenheim, New Zealand

A strong earthquakes, measuring 6.5Mw, followed by at least 5 significant aftershocks, hit central New Zealand, sending Wellington commuters fleeing from the city, forcing thousands of office workers to evacuate and causing  havoc in Marlborough.

Earthquake Details [USGS/EHP]

  • Magnitude: 6.5Mw
  • Depth:10.0km
  • Location: 41.767°S 174.061°E
  • Time: 2013-08-16 11:31:07 UTC+09:00

Buildings have been severely damaged in Seddon, which has been the center of seismic activity since an earlier M6.5 tremor struck the are on July 21, said a report.

The earthquake was felt strongly in NZ Parliament, said a political commentator.

“You could see the floor of the house wobbling and you could see all the fences around shaking and all the windows were shaking.” A Blenheim resident said.

“Its way bigger, hugely bigger, like with the other one because we had heaps of after shocks with the other one they were just not anything to kind of panic about.”

A Nelson resident told NewstalkZB she could hear the “violent” earthquake coming just before it struck.

“Last time it threw us around, the last earthquake, but you could hear this one coming. It was big, and really noisy.”

A Warning to Visitors to New Zealand:

Climatological and Geological Warning! The New Zealand region is about to experience significant climatological events and large-scale geological and tectonic activity over an extensive period of time. Would be visitors are advised to stay out of the area for the foreseeable future.

Will a magnitude 9.8 (MW) earthquake centered at 42° 00′ 59″ South, 175° 05′ 07″ East herald the end of New Zealand Islands?

M6.6 Quake Strikes S of the KERMADEC Islands

Posted by feww on April 18, 2011

WE TOLD YOU SO!

Strong Quake Rattles New Zealand’s Proposed Oil Drilling Site at Raukumara Basin

On April 15, 2011  FIRE-EARTH said

Ironically, Raukumara Basin sits between Kermadec Trench and Kermadec Ridge, and has an inherently unstable geology. FIRE-EARTH believes any oil-drilling in the exceptionally seismic area would most certainly prove disastrous for the entire region.

The quake struck at a depth of 90 km about 550 km ENE of Auckland, New Zealand.

License to Pollute

Without consulting the local Maori, New Zealand government granted Petrobras a five-year permit for exploration of the Raukumara Basin, off the East Cape of New Zealand in June 2010.

Local Maori feel the pollution risk to the water and fish stocks in the regions is too great, should oil be found off the East Cape of New Zealand.

Moderators are aware of a M4.7 that occurred at 09:07UTC about 15km NW of Wellington, New Zealand.
Earthquakes are natural phenomenons (as opposed to sci-fi action you alluded) and as such constitute part of the earth’s natural defense mechanism, among other functions. What you’re witnessing is a planetary response to harms caused by humans.

In “Christchurch Earthquake and ‘Somali Pirates’” posted on February 27, 2011 FIRE-EARTH issued the following warning:

[SEISMIC HAZARD WARNING: Areas in and around the Golden Bay, the Tasman Bay, the region north and south of the Cook Strait, the entire northern seaboard of North Island, especially the Hauraki Gulf area, as well as the western and eastern seaboards of the NI are believed to be among NZ’s potential disaster hotpots.

“FIRE-EARTH believes that unprecedented cataclysmic geophysical events [seismic, volcanic …] WILL destroy much of New Zealand islands within the next few years.”

IF you’re interested about saving lives, these are the sort of messages that you really ought to spread, NOT the sci-fi nonsense about “mega weapons.”

Truth is the bottom line, income from tourism, is more important to your government than human lives.

“and our govt are just people, citizens, like ourselves…”

REALLY? Are you a multimillionaire like your PM John Key?

Your PM is a greedy individual who has amassed a massive fortune, albeit from “immoral activities,” and who has shown no interest in the livelihood of quarter of a million NZ kids living in abject poverty.

Christchurch Earthquake UPDATE Feb 26

Posted by feww on February 26, 2011

Secrecy, Police Control and Political Manipulation Continue in the Quake Aftermath

Confirmed death toll from the Christchurch earthquake has risen to 145, as of posting, with 200+ listed as missing, the Canterbury Region police chief has said.

  • Despite the mounting death toll, NZ police have only released the names of six victims.
  • Police refusal to release the list of those missing remains an even bigger mystery.

The Cathedral ‘God’ Despised


Demolition workers are lowered by crane onto the top of the Christchurch Cathedral. About 22 people, mostly foreign tourists, are said to be entombed inside the 130-year old building. Photo credit: AP. Image may be subject to copyright.

Other deatails:

  • There was no live rescue today, just recovery.
  • Rescue operations have been abandoned in several areas.
  • About 150,000 tons of sand, surfaced as a result of the liquefaction, will have to be removed from Christchurch’s eastern suburbs, reports say.  Only about a fifth of that amount (30,000 tons of sand) was removed after the September 4, 2010 earthquake, NZ’s civil defense has said.
  • More than a third of Christchurch workforce will be out of work for months/years because of the closure of downtown.
  • About 65,000 people remain without water
  • More than 100,000 have no sewerage service.
  • At least 1,000 homes and business have been assessed as “unsafe,” with many more rated as “requiring further assessment.”
  • About one-third of the buildings  in central Christchurch would have to be demolished, according to one estimate.
  • About 200 elderly residents from the worst-affected areas have been transferred out of Christchurch area.
  • At least a quarter of Christchurch buildings are still without power.
  • “More than 500 competitors from 30 different countries were taking part in the ITF World Seniors Championships in Christchurch when the quake hit the 6.3 magnitude quake hit on Tuesday.” Said a report.

Noteworthy Points for Collapse Scholars:

  • Racketeering. Many businesses in Christchurch are reportedly hiking up their prices to maximize profit in the wake of the fatal earthquake, Newstalk ZB said.
  • Food Security. at least 50,000 of Christchurch workforce will be out of work for months, possibly years because of the devastation caused by the earthquake.
  • The Police State. Some 324 police personnel have been imported from Australia and sworn to secrecy.
  • The Exodus. The rush to get out of Christchurch is accelerating, reports say. “Some of those leaving are going for good, even some who have nowhere else to go.” Said a report.  The exodus from Christchurch to Picton and Wellington has begun.
  • The Domino Effect. The city of Nelson, and towns of Blenheim and Picton (and others in the Marlborough region),  have reportedly run out of accommodation for the elderly, after many were relocated from Christchurch following Tuesday’s earthquake.

Unbelievable Larceny

Police have made at least a dozen arrests for looting, including two people who stole vital rescue equipment and generators.

“Worst Type of News”

NZ Foreign Minister has warned families of foreign visitors and overseas students who are still missing in the rubble of Tuesday’s deadly Christchurch earthquake to prepare for the “worst type of news.”

Of the 113 people confirmed dead so far, at least 20 are said to be foreigners, while many of the missing hundreds are also from overseas.

Pathetic Police Comment

“Police have corrected the age of one of the deceased identified yesterday. Jayden Harris was 8 months old when he died in the earthquake, not 9 months as first reported. Police regret any distress caused by this error.” Source.

NZ quakes calve a 27-million ton iceberg

Posted by feww on February 23, 2011

Christchurch quakes calve a 27-million ton chunk of ice from Tasman Glacier

The iceberg measured 1,200m long, 300m high and 75m wide; it broke off the face of Tasman Glacier, in Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park, and plunged into Tasman Lake shortly after the earthquake struck Christchurch yesterday, local reports say.

The large icebergs reportedly broke up upon impact with water, forming several smaller chunks of ice, with the largest measuring about 250m long.

The event created tsunamis up to 3.5m high. Some 16 tourists and two guides out on an “adventure tour” were lucky to escape unhurt.

The iceberg is said to be the third largest calving to have occurred in the Tasman Lake since 1970.Image credit as above.

New Zealand Earthquake Update

  • The authorities have raised the death toll to at least 75, with 20 bodies unidentified, some believed to be foreign tourists.
  • More than 300 people are said to be missing.

Christchurch Could Vanish from Google Map

Posted by feww on February 23, 2011

SPECIFIC  WARNING to New Zealand

Large-scale tectonic and geophysical  activities could wipe off Christchurch and other NZ cities from the face of the Earth

In  A Warning to Visitors to New Zealand FIRE-EARTH asked Apartheid Fort New Zealand to post the following message dated May 9, 2009:

[NOTE: The posts linked to above have also been buried by NZ govt and the Internet mafia.]

Climatological and Geological Warning!

The New Zealand region is about to experience significant climatological events and large-scale geological and tectonic activity. Would be visitors are advised to stay out of the area for the foreseeable future.

On July 16, 2009 FIRE-EARTH posted Global Travel Warning!

Global Travel Warning!

Posted by feww on July 16, 2009

STAY OUT OF NEW ZEALAND!

The following WARNING was first posted on MAY 9, 2009 at NewZeelend Blog. FEWW is re-posting the WARNING with renewed urgency:

Seismic, Volcanic and Climatological Warning!

The New Zealand region is undergoing large-scale tectonic [seismological and volcanic] activities and significant climatological events. Would be visitors are well advised to stay clear of the area for the foreseeable future.

Here’s a New, SPECIFIC WARNING to New Zealand

FIRE-EARTH believes large earthquakes could destroy Christchurch and several other cities in New Zealand. The bulk of Christchurch could literally vanish as a result of ensuing geophysical activity, possibly by as early as 2015.

In the Short Term

  • More powerful shocks could strike Christchurch [also Auckland, Wellington and elsewhere in New Zealand] anytime.
  • Large scale volcanic activity in the country could occur this year [high probability.]
  • FIRE-EARTH has identified a number of potential seismic ‘Ground Zeros,’ areas prone to devastation, in the New Zealand Region, some of which coincide with population centers.

New Zealand government has a moral responsibility [we won’t hold our breath] and a  legal duty to relocate New Zealanders from the DANGER ZONES. [Would you trust a government which hides earthquake warnings from its people?]

FIRE-EARTH advice to Christchurch residents:

Get out while you’re still alive!

NZ Govt and Google Buried Quake Warnings

Posted by feww on February 22, 2011

New Zealand Quake Update

Why Did New Zealand Govt and Google Bury Specific Quake Warnings?

FIRE-EARTH Blog has been posting specific quake warning for New Zealand Region since 2008, all of which have been buried by New Zealand govt and Google. [See links below.]

Latest NZ Earthquake Update and WARNINGS:

  • NZ’s Prime Minister John Key has confirmed at least 65 deaths in the Christchurch as a result of today’s earthquakes. “We may be witnessing New Zealand’s darkest day,” he told TVNZ.
  • Mayor Bob Parker has said the death toll could quite possibly double.
  • Many foreign tourists may be among the casualties.
  • It’s unlikely that the secretive government would ever reveal the exact number of fatalities and casualties.
  • Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker said up to 200 people are trapped in buildings across the city.
  • Many people are still reported as missing.
  • The power is cut off and phone lines are down throughout Christchurch, as the authorities evacuate the central areas of the city because of the widespread damage to buildings, roads and other infrastructure.
  • Water supplies have been cut-off/disrupted throughout most of the city
  • Many roads have been severely damaged and there are reports of widespread liquefaction and flooding.
  • The epicenter was close to the town of Lyttelton (population: 3,000), about 12km SE of Christchurch and described as “unlivable” by a TV reporter.
  • Sixty percent of buildings in Lyttelton’s main street  were destroyed, the chief fire officer has reported.
  • In the central suburb of Waltham, as well as several other areas, the ground was “completely liquefied” following  the quakes.
  • The quakes have had a knock-on effect on air travel, with all commercial flights throughout New Zealand grounded.
  • Today’s earthquakes, so far,  were the second deadliest wave to strike New Zealand since a 1931 M7.8 earthquake killed 256 people in city of Napier, Hawke’s Bay region.
  • Three significant shocks have struck the area, as of posting, with the most recent one registering 5.5Mw at 01:50UTC.
  • Technically, larger shocks could strike anytime, FIRE-EARTH believes.

  • FIRE-EARTH has identified a number of potential seismic ‘Ground Zeros,’ areas prone to devastation, in the New Zealand Region, some of which coincide with population centers. New Zealand government has a moral responsibility and legal duty to relocate their people from those areas.

  • Christchurch could become unlivable in the near future.

NZ: Worst Flooding in 150 Years

Massive Flooding Destroys Bridges, Roads in South Island

Disaster-stricken New Zealand was struck by yet another catastrophe, as torrential rain and strong winds pummeled top of the South Island causing extensive damage to infrastructure.

“Raging waters in the Aorere River have destroyed the Salisbury Swing Bridge and the James Road Bridge. Livestock has been swept away and houses flooded.” Newstalk ZB


An aerial photograph of the Aorere River and Aorere Valley flooded after heavy rains swept through the region. Photo: Tasman District Council/ via Nelson Mail

Major South Island roads remain closed after yesterday’s flooding caused by “a fast-moving storm” swept through the region buffeting much of New Zealand with strong winds and torrential rain, reports say.

“In Golden Bay at the top of the South Island, the Aorere River reached very high levels. The river can normally be forded on foot during summer, but was flowing at 3500cu m per second at the peak.” NZPA said.

The Marlborough district was also badly hit, with extensive damage reported in the Rai Valley, Canvastown, Northbank and the Marlborough Sounds.

“Drenched campers were forced to flee the Pelorus Bridge campground, 59km north west of Blenheim, as the river surged through the site, lifting a caravan and tents before receding yesterday. They were being looked after by local residents.” The report said.

New Zealand floods would most probably trigger a major outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease FMD (Aphtae epizooticae) throughout the country. —FIRE-EARTH
