In a day marked by the gloom of a growing death toll, at least one story of hope emerged Monday as search teams combed rubble for survivors days after a powerful earthquake shook Ecuador’s Pacific coast.
Rescuers pulled a person from the ruins of a hotel in the city of Portoviejo on Monday afternoon, security officials said.
The man, who was about 35 years old, had called his mother with his cell phone to tell her he was still alive under the rubble,
Firefighters who traveled to Ecuador from Bogota, Colombia, helped rescue him.
A second strong earthquake rattled southern Japan early Saturday morning, around 1:25 am local time. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) initially estimated the quake at a 7.0 magnitude (some sources say 7.1), and it came a little more than 24 hours after similarly large earthquakes rattled the same region.
Thursday evening local time, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck the southern Japanese island of Kyushu north of Kumamoto, resulting in the deaths of nine people and around 800 injuries. According to the USGS, the quake Thursday was part of a “series of foreshocks in the same region.” Why is the crust of the Earth shaking so violently all of a sudden?
Over the past 48 hours, there have been five major earthquakes globally, and one prominent seismologist has declared that “catastrophic mega earthquakes” could be on the way. In fact, seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado has made headlines all over the world by warning that “current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude”. If his projections are accurate, our planet could be on the precipice of a wave of natural disasters unlike anything that any of us have ever experienced before.
Since the beginning of 2016, south Asia has been hit by an unusually high number of large earthquakes, and this has scientists groping for an explanation.
A single magnitude 8.0 earthquake in a populated area would be a disaster of historic proportions.
If we were to see four of them like Roger Bilham is projecting, that would be a complete and utter nightmare.
It is important to keep in mind that a magnitude 8.0 earthquake would be many, many times larger than the twin earthquakes that hit Japan earlier today… Most Americans expect the next great earthquake in the United States to come on the west coast.
But what if it strikes right down the middle of the country instead? The New Madrid fault zone is six times larger than the San Andreas fault zone in California and it covers portions of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. Back in 1811 and 1812, a series of absolutely devastating earthquakes along the New Madrid fault zone opened very deep fissures in the ground, caused the Mississippi River to run backwards in some places, and were reportedly felt as far away as Washington D.C. and Boston. They were the strongest earthquakes ever recorded east of the Rocky Mountains, and scientists tell us that it is only a matter of time before we experience similar quakes.
On Thursday we also saw a magnitude 6.5 earthquake hit Vanuatu, and a magnitude 5.9 earthquake shook the southern Philippines… I think that it is important to point out that all of this shaking did not just begin this week. In fact, ever since the start of this calendar year there has been a lot of unusual earthquake activity all over Asia… Even a single magnitude 8.0 earthquake in a major city in Japan, China or the United States would cause global markets to crash and would mean billions of dollars in economic damage.
Russia Prepares For Catastrophic Earthquake, But Warns America Is In Worst Danger
A stunning new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that President Putin has authorized the immediate redeployment of troops in the Eastern Military District (EMD) in preparation for what could be a series of massive earthquakes and tsunamis to hit the Kamchatka Peninsula within the next fortnight—and further warns that the United States-Canada-Alaska northwestern Pacific Ocean region may be in even more danger than Russia.
According to this report, this unprecedented peacetime movement of thousands of Federation troops to their pre-assigned “protective corridors” was based upon an “urgent warning” communication sent to the Security Council (SC) earlier today by Doctor-Scientist Mehran Keshe that said this afternoons powerful 5.8 magnitude earthquake that struck the Kingdom of Tonga was the “last lynchpin to fall” as thePacific Plate is preparing for a “catastrophic new alignment”.
Doctor-Scientist Keshe, we have previously noted, is the inventor of “magrav technology” (Western code name code name “Khibiny”) used by Federation military forces in their secretive defense weapons used to cripple American warships like was done against the USS Donald Cook this past week.
In using a “different aspect” of his “magrav technology”, this report continues, Doctor-Scientist Keshe this past October (2015) issued his first dire pronouncement about the Pacific Plate warning that a “world-changing mega-tremor with the power to split up continents was imminent”.
Three months after Doctor-Scientist Keshe’s October 2015 warning, this report notes, both the Kamchatka Peninsula and Southern Alaska were hit with7.1 and 7.3 magnitude earthquakes causing President Putin to begin his first realignment of EMD troops in the face of this looming threat—and which we, likewise, reported on in our 9 February report Putin War Move Sends Shockwave Through West As Pacific Tsunami Threat Rises.
During this past week, this report grimly states, Doctor-Scientist Keshe’s use of “magrav technology” to make his “predictive assessments” regarding the accelerated movement of the Pacific Plate has proven accurate as no less than 7 powerful earthquakes (and today’s Tonga quake making 8) have struck this region—the worst being the South American nation of Ecuador where at least 233 are dead, and in Japan where a further, at least, 41 are dead, thousands still missing, and another 250,000 left homeless.
Joining Doctor-Scientist Keshe’s dire pronouncements regarding the Pacific Plate, this report continues, is American Doctor-Scientist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) who yesterday warned too that “The current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude, and if they delay, the strain accumulated during the centuries provokes more catastrophic mega earthquakes.”
And to if Doctor-Scientist Bilham’s mega earthquake fears are realized, this report concludes, Doctor-Scientist Keshe’s assessment of what this could entail is nothing less then catastrophic as he had previously warned that North and South America will “split” and mega tsunamis could “strike America and Asia killing 40 million people”.
Though this report gives no date for any expected earthquake, tsunami or volcano eruption to occur as the sciences involved in doing so are far from adequate, it is more than curious to note that the MoD has ordered all of its top commanders and political office holders from the Far East Pacific Ocean regions to be in Moscow on 27 April for what this report says is a “readiness conference”.
