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

Tectonic Summary

Earthquakes in the Stable Continental Region

Natural Occurring Earthquake Activity

Most of North America east of the Rocky Mountains has infrequent earthquakes. Here and there earthquakes are more numerous, for example in the New Madrid seismic zone centered on southeastern Missouri, in the Charlevoix-Kamouraska seismic zone of eastern Quebec, in New England, in the New York – Philadelphia – Wilmington urban corridor, and elsewhere. However, most of the enormous region from the Rockies to the Atlantic can go years without an earthquake large enough to be felt, and several U.S. states have never reported a damaging earthquake. […]

Induced Seismicity

As is the case elsewhere in the world, there is evidence that some central and eastern North America earthquakes have been triggered or caused by human activities that have altered the stress conditions in earth’s crust sufficiently to induce faulting. Activities that have induced felt earthquakes in some geologic environments have included

  • Impoundment of water behind dams,
  • Injection of fluid into the earth’s crust,
  • Extraction of fluid or gas, and
  • Removal of rock in mining or quarrying operations.

In much of eastern and central North America, the number of earthquakes suspected of having been induced is much smaller than the number of natural earthquakes, but in some regions, such as the south-central states of the U.S., a significant majority of recent earthquakes are thought by many seismologists to have been human-induced.  […]

Oklahoma declares a state of emergency for 20 counties

Posted by feww on November 10, 2011

Earthquakes, severe storms, tornadoes and torrential rain batter Oklahoma

Oklahoma has been rattled by dozens of earthquakes, including a record-setting magnitude 5.6 shock that caused damage in central parts of the state. Tornadoes, straight-line winds and torrential rains have also caused damage in 20 counties.

Disaster Calendar 2011 – November 10

[November 10, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,588 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • Oklahoma, USA.  Oklahoma Gov. Fallin has declared a state of emergency for 20 counties following damage caused by earthquakes, severe storms, tornadoes and  torrential rains that have battered the state this week.
    • The counties included in the declaration are: Caddo, Carter, Cleveland, Comanche, Greer, Harmon, Jackson, Johnston, Kiowa, LeFlore, Lincoln, McCurtain, Murray, Okfuskee, Oklahoma, Pottawatomie, Pushmataha, Sequoyah, Tillman, and Washita.
    • FIRE-EARTH Forecast:

      WARNING: Many parts of the United States could become ‘unrecognizable’ due to extreme climatic, geophysical and geological episodes over the next 18 months: FIRE-EARTH Forecast

Other Global Disasters

  • Turkey. A significant aftershock measuring 5.6Mw struck about 16 km (9 miles) south of Van, Turkey toppling at least 2 dozen buildings, killing 12 people and leaving about 100 others unaccounted for.
    • The aftershock struck SE of Van, about 35km from a powerful 7.2Mw shock which occurred on October 23, killing more than 600, injuring at least two thousand, destroying scores of homes and leaving tens of thousands of people homeless.
    • FIRE-EARTH Forecast: A major earthquake could yet strike Turkey in 2011/2012 with a certainty of 0.7 (P= 66%).
  • Alaska, USA. “Storm of epic proportions” pummeled the western coast of Alaska forcing the authorities to issue evacuation orders in dozens of communities.
    • The storm was compared to a category 3 hurricane, according to NWS.
    • The storm caused coastal surges of more than 3m (10 feet).
    •  “Forty years ago, a big storm like this would come through and the sea ice would act as sort of a buffer,” said the director of the Snow and Ice Data Center.
    • “The Bering Sea has and always will have these strong storms. What is different now is their potential destructiveness as you lose the sea ice cover.”
  • Bangkok, Thailand. Reported death toll in Thailand flooding has climbed to 533 with at least two people reported missing.
    • Flooding currently persists in 24 of the country’s 77 provinces, affecting about 3 million residents.
    • “The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration today declared parts of three districts flood evacuation areas,” a report said.
    • Since late July the floods have destroyed or damaged about 3.3 million homes affecting about 12 million people over 85 percent of the country.
  • Australia. Wild storms have buffeted the state of  Victoria in southern Australia, damaging homes, toppling trees knocking down power lines and triggering flash flooding.”
    • The storms were described as “dangerous” by the state emergency services (SES) because of the intensity of rainfall.
    • “Similar to what we saw in March 2009 where we had hundreds of millions, perhaps even a billion dollars of damage to property and vehicles over that period,” SES officials said.
    • Sydney. Meanwhile, Sydney, Australia’s most populated city, experienced its hottest November night on record as the mercury soared to 28.4ºC and stayed above 26.5ºC, or 10 degrees above the average minimum temperature for November.
