Planetary Tremors: Precursors To An Imminent Disaster In America - Seismic Tremors and Quake Swarm in Baja, California and Nevada!
On Thursday morning around 4:11am, a 4.0 magnitude earthquake shook the southern end of the Coachella Valley in Baja, California. Centred 20 miles south of the border city of Mexicali, near Guadalupe Victoria and 86 miles from Tijuana. The quake had a depth of 5.3 kilometres or 3.3 miles and was located at 32.365°N, 115.550°W. At the time of writing, there have been 11 earthquakes in the area within a time frame of approximately three hours from 3:50am to 6:56am, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the California Integrated Seismic Net.
In Nevada, the earthquake swarms that has seismologists, geologists and scientists very worried continues. Here's a look at the latest data from the Nevada and California Fault Maps.
As usual, we can't really rely on the USGS to provide us with correct information, given the Presidential mandate to hide information related to earthquakes worldwide, so therefore we look to another source, The Global Incident Map. On the earthquake page of their site, I have counted 19 earthquakes so far, in the same three-hour time span used from the data of USGS, with an additional one later in the morning.
If you closely at the USGS list, you will notice a moderately strong magnitude 6 earthquake that struck off the east coast of Honshu in Japan. In addition, there has been three other quakes in the same area of magnitude 5 and over. A 5.3, 5.0 and a 5.8. This is all suggesting that the Pacific "Ring of Fire" is heating up.
With a chain of volcanoes running along the coastline of the various continents bordered by the Pacific Ocean, the arc is showing major seismic activity stretching from Tonga and the Kermadec Islands near New Zealand to the New Britain region of Papua New Guinea; along the eastern edge of Asia off the west coast of northern Sumatra to the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan to the successive swarms off the east coast of Honshu in Japan; north cross to the Near Islands in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska; to Northern and Southern Alaska; several states in America including Hawaii; to El Salvador, Ecuador, Chile and Easter Island in South America; and extending to Caribbean tectonic plates where constant tremors have been felt in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Dominican Republic.
The next few days into the month of May should be very tumultuous, especially when you consider all of the preparations by FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security and other American disaster and emergency management groups, that I have documented in the article: SEISMIC TREMORS: Precursors To An Imminent Disaster In America - Nevada Quake Swarm Have Experts Concerned Ahead Of Major FEMA National Level Exercise Along New Madrid & Increasing SUN Activity! Given the constant sliding of the Pacific plate underneath other plates, I would expect that the tremendous amount of energy created would continue to melt rock into magma, producing more lava, volcanism and major earthquake activity in this subduction zone.
