PLANETARY TREMORS: Japan Quake and the Pacific "Ring of Fire"! UPDATE: Massive Japan Aftershocks & Seismic Upheavals on LISS! UPDATE: Massive SUNSPOT 1165 Emerges - Here Comes Trouble?!

Have a look at the following images of the latest earthquakes in the world for the past 7 days:

At the time of writing, USGS is conservatively report a total of 408 earthquakes around the globe over the last 7 days. The actual total should be somewhere over 600, due to the manipulation, deletion and suppression of earthquake data by the information agency. It must be noted that in 2006, then President, George W. Bush mandated that the USGS withhold evidence and information regarding major seismic and volcanism activity in the United States and around the globe, including the status of Yellowstone. Five years later, President Obama still has not repealed or canceled the order. Therefore, it is still in effect.

What is certain, whether or not USGS reports on it, is that the monster earthquake that devastated Japan was a monumental shift not just on the coastline and landscape of the island, but more importantly on the surface of Earth. There are already varying opinions on the actual changes to the planet. The Geospatial Information Authority in Tsukuba, Japan data revealed that the March 11 tremors shifted the Oshika Peninsula, near the epicentre by just over 17 feet and dropped it by just over 4 feet. Satoko Oki of the University of Tokyo's Earthquake Research Institute said the massive quake shifted Earth on its axis by as much as 4 inches, moving Japan closer eastward to the United States by up to a staggering 13 feet. Based on calculations using data received from global positioning satellites and stations, the redistribution of mass by the quake effectively shortened each day by a couple millionths of a second.

The greatest impact of the magnitude 9 earthquake was the Pacific Basin, where an arc of volcanoes and fault lines constitutes the "Ring of Fire." The quake shifted stress from different parts of fault lines to others, creating a trench in the sea floor of approximately 240 miles long and 120 miles wide, as tectonic plates slide above and beneath one another. One plate adjust downwards by 30 feet. The effect of this can be seen in the 3D earthquake map with the continuous succession of earthquakes along the arc and the perpetual aftershock swarms in Japan rising like space elevator into the sky with over 300 aftershocks at magnitude 5 and over.  This pervasive distribution of stress by these successions and swarms is already piling on additional pressure up the nearby segments, which more than likely will escalate towards a breaking point, triggering another great earthquake. Based on this distribution of stress, I am of the view that the tectonic plates beneath Tokyo will soon yield to this pressure, ultimately resulting in a dramatic sinking of sections of Japan. Already, 250 miles of the coastal section of the country has dropped in altitude by two feet. Given that Japan sits at the juncture of the Eurasia Plate, the North American Plate and the Indo-Australian Plate, I also expect to see major seismic activity in Indonesia and America due to the subduction zones.

Today in Indonesia, up to 1,200 people had to flee an active volcano in its northern region.

The evacuations were made from two villages near Mount Karangetang, on Siau Island, the country's National Disaster Management Agency said. Local and national officials estimated the number of evacuees at between 800 - 1,200 people, with damage reported to a home, a church and some bridges. The nearly 6,000-foot (1,827-meter) volcano is one of Indonesia's most active. An eruption in August killed four people. Late last week, Indonesia's Volcanology and Geological Disaster Management Agency raised the volcano's alert status to its highest level, after noting increased activity on March 11. Ash clouds from Mount Karangetang reached 7,500 feet (2,300 meters) over the weekend, with lava reported flowing down the mountainside. - CNN.
Volcanism in Indonesia is perhaps the most active along the "Ring of Fire," and when you couple that fact with the recent upsurge in earthquakes, sinkholes, cracking, flooding and loss of land elevation; then it is not hard to see that a significant geological displacement will happen there soon.

Speaking of earthquakes, 500 tremors left Nanded residents in India in a grip of fear.

Taking the rising scale of the tremors and the subsequent fear in the people of Nanded into account, the state government has appointed a committee of the geology experts from three renowned institutions to study the seismic activity in Nanded. With 500 incidences of tremors since 2007 -highest being 3.17 on Richter scale two weeks ago – the local administration apprehensive that if it crosses 5 on Richter scales, it could cause damage to the human lives and property. A committee of experts in geology and earth sciences from Geological Survey of India, Swami Ramanand Teerth University, Nanded and National Geophysical Research Institute, Hyderabad has been constituted to study the micro generation. The committee will identify the most affected and vulnerable areas and the potential damage due to the tremors. State government has released the calamity fund of Rs46.66 lakh last week to facilitate the study. “This is the phenomena we have been experiencing since 2007. The villagers experience mild tremors and rumbling from the earth. The tremors are experienced generally in the post monsoon season. The latest one of 3.17 on Richter scale being the largest tremor so far. If the scale reaches 5, it could cause serious damage. We have taken the rise in scale very seriously,” said Nishikant Deshpande, resident district collector, Nanded. Of nearly 51.76 sq km of the total area of the city and rural Nanded district, more than 20 sq km is affected with the tremors. Sneh Nagar, Pawadebaug, Agricultural college, Shreya Nagar are most affected areas in Nanded. After 39 shocks in barely two hours on March 3, 2011 led to the apprehension among the people who spent two sleepless nights. The committee was constituted immediately after the tremors. - DNA India
Over the weekend, three aftershocks, one a strong 5.1 magnitude, rattled earthquake-weary residents of Christchurch in New Zealand.

Christchurch was ravaged by a 6.3 earthquake on February 22 that killed more than 150 people and has experienced many aftershocks in the month since then. But three tremors rolled across the city in quick succession on Sunday night, one of 3.0 at 9.43pm (1943 AEDT), the second of 5.1 four minutes later and the third of 2.9. The second and third shocks were in almost exactly the same location - 10km east of the city and 10km and llkm deep. No damage was immediately reported. One source told NZPA the first tremor was what Christchurch residents had become accustomed to as a "fairly standard" aftershock but the second jolt was much stronger and lasted far longer. Many aftershocks have been recorded since the "big one" in February. Herald Sun
Meanwhile, in the Philippines an earthquake with an initial magnitude of 6.4 rocked the northern regions on Sunday, but there were no initial reports of damages, the government's volcanology and seismology institute said. 
The quake, centred offshore 117 km northeast of Laoag city on the main Philippine island of Luzon, was felt as far as the capital Manila, the institute said in a report posted on its website. "It's quite big so we are calling and checking on islands in the north, but there are no reports of damages yet," Ismael Narag, officer in charge of the seismology department at the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, told Reuters. - 7 News

In Afghanistan, a mild earthquake with its epicentre in the Hindukush region in Afghanistan hit the Kashmir valley on Monday.

The tremor of magnitude 5.8 occurred around 3.20 in the afternoon and lasted for three seconds, MeT officials have said. The jolt, which was felt in almost all parts of the valley, prompted people to rush out of buildings fearing repeat of the 2005 quake, which devastated several border areas of the valley, including Srinagar. There was no report of any damage due to the tremor. - India Today.

What will happen next? Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Massive Japan Aftershocks and Seismic Upheavals on LISS!

A series of strong aftershocks rocked Japan's northeast coast today, measuring above magnitude 6.0 and occurring within about two-and-a-half hours of each other. The first aftershock measured 6.6, followed by a 6.4 and then a 6.6. No tsunami warning was issued. There have been about 600 aftershocks since the monster 9.0 magnitude quake that initially hit Japan more than a week ago, but these latest aftershocks are some of the strongest ones since then. At the time of writing this update, there have been 18 aftershocks since the start of today alone. The three strong aftershocks had a depth between 9.6 to 16.8 miles, occurring off the east coast of Honshu and was felt as far as northeast of the capital Tokyo.

The telemetry data from station MAJO in Japan for the Live Internet Seismic Server (LISS) illustrates the seismic upheavals.

As a matter of fact, practically all of the monitoring stations on LISS are showing a tremendous spike in their respective telemetric data. Just have a look at the stations in nearby China:

This spike is also reflected in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Data Buoy Center data for Station 21418 in northeast Tokyo. According to NOAA,  the "Event data from DART Station 21418 has exhibited spikes in the data due to electronics noise that are not an indication of water level."

Interestingly, Indonesia was rocked by two earthquakes today as well, a 4.6 in Java and a 4.7 in Southern Sumatra. The Java quake had a depth of 25.2 miles with a distance of up to 140 miles, where rumblings was felt near southwest of Jakarta and Bandung. The Sumatra quake had a depth of 59.7 miles with a distance of up to 373 miles near the western regions of Jakarta and the southern sections of Singapore.

Like I have said before, the distribution of seismic stress on the tectonic plates will ultimately result in more devastation in Japan and other countries along the Pacific "Ring of Fire."

UPDATE: Massive SUNSPOT 1165 Emerges - Here Comes Trouble?

According to Space Weather, the situation of Earth changes will be compounded soon with the introduction of geomagnetic storms.

HERE COMES TROUBLE? A big sunspot is emerging over the sun's southeastern limb, and it is crackling with activity. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded a surge of extreme ultraviolet radiation from the sunspot's magnetic canopy on March 21st. This appears to be the return of old sunspot 1165, last seen in early March when it formed on the sun's southwestern limb. Since then it has been transiting the far side of the sun, apparently growing in size and restlessness. The potential for trouble will become more clear in the hours ahead as the active region emerges in full. Stay tuned. 
Stay tuned, indeed.

EARTH CHANGES: The Great Deluge - Persistent Global Flooding!

In Vietnam last year, Professor Le Van Trung, the director of the Geomatics Center of the Vietnam National University of HCMC told a seminar that the pace of land sinking had accelerated, that land-surface subsidence in many districts of the country was quite alarming and warned that the situation was approaching a critical point.
Areas vulnerable to land-surface subsidence include Thu Duc and Binh Chanh districts, as well as districts 6, 7, and 8 with an average sinking rate of over 10 millimeters a year, he said. Trung gave this warning after he had spent 18 months to conduct a VND10-billion project using Dynamic Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar, or Insar technology, to detect and measure the ground surface deformation around the city. “Some streets such as Kha Van Can in Thu Duc District, Vinh Loc B in Binh Chanh District, Ton That Thuyen and Ly Chieu Hoang in District 6 and other areas south of the city have subsided by 0.3 meter since 2000,” he said. The professor said the easily-seen consequence of land sinking was an increase in flooding sites around the city and that “79 out of 116 flooding sites in the city are the direct consequence of quick sinking of the land surface. We all know that under the impacts of climate change, sea level is forecast to rise by 0.7 meter by 2100, while the land surface in HCMC has been subsiding by at least 10 millimeters a year. Consequently, 60% of the total area of the city could expectedly be submerged under the seawater by that time if we don’t take quick measures to cope with the matter,” he warned. - VietNews.
Professor Trung's warning is based on hard science and provides confirmation of the continued compression along the rim of the Pacific Ocean, the "Ring of Fire," where the preponderance of volcanic and earthquake activity on fault zones place great stress on the tectonic plates with massive vibrations and collisions. This will ultimately result in increase flooding, as the sinking of land mass and the drop in elevation, is severely contrasted with rising sea water levels and persistently heavy rain.

The situation is getting worse daily, where the peak of water level of the Saigon River reached 1.45 metres plunging city streets with high flood tides.


The high tide has risen over the last few days and is expected to continue to do so for the next three days in the low lying sections of the Saigon- Dong Nai River. According to the Southern Regional Hydro Meteorological Forecasting Center, at Phu An Station, the Saigon River might see the tide rise higher to 1.42m-1.45ms. At the Nha Be Station, it is expected to rise to 1.38-1.42ms. The flood tide would peak around 4-7am and 5-8pm everyday, the center said. The city Steering Committee for Flood and Storm Prevention and for Search and Rescue has ordered rescue forces to stand by ready to cope with the flooding in the highly prone areas in districts of 12, Thu Duc, Binh Thanh, Go Vap and Cu Chi. - Saigon Daily.
In the Philippines, floods that hit Eastern Visayas have since displaced over 114,000 individuals.


According to the Office of the Civil Defense (OCD), 114,543 individuals, representing 22,823 families, were affected by the flooding as of Saturday morning. Post your online prayers for Japan earthquake victims. The OCD said the families affected by the floods were from the 247 barangays from 16 towns of Leyte. In Tacloban, 53,533 individuals were reportedly affected by floods. However, only 3,605 persons were evacuated to various evacuation centers in the city. In Southern Leyte, 1,030 persons representing 250 families from the towns of Saint Bernard and Sogod were reported to have been affected by floods. In Samar, at least 4,275 persons (817 families) from the eight barangays of Sta. Rita town were affected. But records from the regional office of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) revealed that 12,382 persons were affected by flooding in Pambujan, Northern Samar, while 253 persons from 86 families from Pinabacdao, Samar were likewise affected. The OCD-Eastern Visayas has also confirmed nine people died from the floods, eight of them from Tacloban City while the other fatality was in Palo town, Leyte. To recall, an entire family of seven was killed when their house in Barangay Cabalawan was buried in a landslide, while a 65-year-old man died at the height of the flooding incident on Wednesday. - Sun Star
 In Indonesia,  hundreds of homes in the Village and Village Tanjung Wawonasa Ternate, Manado, North Sulawesi, inundated with a height reaching two to three meters, on Sunday.


Floods caused by heavy rains that hit the area. Every rainy season, Cape Village and Village Ternate Wawonasa be subscribed flooding because it is located on the outskirts of River Tondano. Due to flooding, thousands of residents fled to higher ground such as mosques and schools that have a second floor. According to residents, since they were last week flooded three times the shipment of the City of Tondano. Citizens expect the government to build levees on the outskirts das prevent any future flooding in every rainy season. There are no reports of casualties due to this disaster. - Berita.
In Bangladesh, tidal water yesterday marooned at least 300 landless families at three villages of Sukhchar union under Hatiya upazila.


The surge also damaged crops on about 700 acres of land at Nall Chira, Kela Danga and Sukhchar. Anowar Hossain, president of Workers Party unit in Hatiya upazila and a local said that a powerful tidal surge hit Sukhchar union embankment at about 5:00 pm. The embankment collapsed giving way to tidal water which submerged the three villages, he added. At least 300 landless people became marooned while peanut, pulse, water melon, cucumber, pumpkin and other crops and vegetables on 700 acres went under water. Prof Wali Ullah, chairman, Hatiya upazila parishad said he had no fund to help them. "But I am trying to communicate with deputy commissioner of Noakhali for aid. The situation might deteriorate at night with fresh tide in the Meghna River," he said. - The Daily Star
In Brazil, the heavy rains that hit the coastal region are still causing havoc for residents. The final statement released by the Paraná Civil Defense, points out that at least 478 people remain in shelters in the cities of Morriston, Paranaguá and Antonina. Gradually, residents trying to go back to routine amid the destruction caused by storms.


By Antonina, in record number of homeless, 340 people remain in shelters already in Paranagua, the number is somewhat lower, with 159 installed in housing relief. Morrisons still have 20 homeless, most of the region of Forest, the rural area.  Of the 450 men of the fire brigade and military police, at least 100 of them are volunteers. They were in operation in the summer and have been released last Friday, however, remained in the region to help those affected by the rains. BR-277 following two-way working between 0:29 km, yet as the movement of cars is small, the traffic in the region is normal. In the BR-376 system Stop / Follow remains between 663 and 673 km. Because of this, the total time of a trip from Curitiba to the coast of Santa Catarina can last until 8am. On the contrary, the path may take up to 12 hours. Due to landslides on Saturday at least 30% of the population of Antonina was without water. Technicians working for the problem to be solved. - Jornais.
 In New South Wales in Australia, one person may have been swept into a swollen creek at Warilla, as a deluge floods the Illawarra causing traffic havoc and train delays.


According to the Bureau of Meteorology, between 9am and 1.30pm today, 154mm of rain has fallen on Albion Park. However in the northern suburbs, Bellambi has only received 37mm over the same period. Police are investigating a report of a person swept into a creek in Oakleigh Park, Warilla, today. Meanwhile homes have reportedly begun to be inundated with flood waters in Albion Park near Grey St and Fleet Cres. Mobile homes at Lake Windemere Caravan Park Warilla, Shellharbour City Stadium and Warilla Library have also reportedly been flooded. Drivers trying to get in or out of Albion Park have been thwarted with multiple roads flooded. The Illawarra Hwy has been flooded between the Princes Hwy and Tongarra Rd and in Albion Park Rail, flooding has closed the Princes Hwy in both directions. Meantime, one southbound lane on the F6 Freeway at the Northcliffe Dr exit ramp is closed due to flooding. At Cringila, northbound lanes on Five Islands Rd at Emily St have flooded and all lanes of the Illawarra Hwy at Macquarie Pass have been affected by flood water. Drivers were advised to avoid flooded areas.
Expect more of this to continue, as the ongoing seismic upheavals of the tectonic plates will result in the lowering of land elevations, as well as rising sea and river levels. Ergo, more flooding.

MYSTERY: Symbols of Alien Sky, HAARP, Seismic Stress or Technical Error - Radar ANOMALY Larger Than Belgium Seen Across Europe?!

Today, one of my sources sent me the image on the left, which shows a massive doughnut-shaped ring covering hundreds of miles across Europe. The image of the object was captured by Meteox, a weather satellite, radar and forecasting system. The unusual formation is estimated to be larger than the country of Belgium and has left many wondering what the unidentified object represents. Was it a spacecraft, a HAARP ring signature, a technical error with the radar system or seismic activity?

Here is a video representation as it actual appears on the Meteox radar systems.

One can't help but wonder about this strange pattern and compare it to the mysterious weather anomalies that appeared over the skies of Australia from January 15 to February 5 of last year, where a similar doughnut-shaped formation was first seen in Perth that morphed into various ring-shaped configurations over several days.

The evidence derived from the extraordinary aerial phenomenon pointed to the experiments and frequency interference of the HAARP facility in Exmouth, Australia as responsible. A weather modification and manipulation project that was later seen as a precursor to the bizarre weather anomalies that hit Australia in the latter part of 2010, where the country was submerged under a deluge of flooding of biblical proportions, that engulfed an area larger than France and Germany combined.

If this new radar representation in Europe emanates from one of HAARP's worldwide facilities, should we expect mysterious weather anomalies and planetary tremors soon, given that this could be a directed interference and distortion of Earth's magnetic field?
