U.S. Urged to Rapidly Prepare for Electromagnetic Pulse Attack

U.S. Urged to Rapidly Prepare for Electromagnetic Pulse Attack

The United States is vulnerable to a devastating electromagnetic pulse event caused by a high-altitude nuclear blast or solar superstorm, according to a recently published book.

Peter Pry, a former CIA analyst and author of the book EMP Manhattan Project, is urging the government to rapidly harden the U.S. electric power system against EMP similar to the three-year crash program to build the first atomic bomb in 1942.

“Today the United States and the world faces another existential threat—from an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) catastrophe that can be caused by nature or man, and topple the technological pillars of modern electronic civilization,” said Pry, who served on a congressional EMP commission in the early 2000s.

The book contains fresh assessments of the EMP threat produced by a more recent congressional commission last year that concluded the United States would suffer millions of deaths from a major EMP incident.

EMP was discovered in the 1960s during above-ground nuclear tests. The tests showed a nuclear blast created a pulse capable of disrupting or destroying electronic devices over large areas, in some cases over 1,000 miles away.

The latest EMP commission found the United States is confronted with “a present and continuing existential threat from naturally occurring and manmade electromagnetic pulse assault and related attacks on military and critical national infrastructures.”

An EMP event would produce an electric power outage over large areas of the country that could last for a year or longer.

Emergency systems, such as generators, also are vulnerable to damage from EMP.

EMP events would disable critical supply chains and plunge the entire country into living conditions similar to those of centuries ago prior the use of electric power.

“An extended blackout today could result in the death of a large fraction of the American people through the effects of societal collapse, disease, and starvation,” the commission stated in its July 2017 report.

“While national planning and preparation for such events could help mitigate the damage, few such actions are currently underway or even being contemplated.”

William R. Graham, former head of the EMP commission, stated in a preface to the book that a nationwide electrical blackout of one year “could kill millions, perhaps prove fatal to most Americans, by starvation, disease, and societal collapse.”

“EMP is a civilization killer,” Graham said.

The book warns that China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran are preparing to use EMP attacks combined with traditional military strikes and new cyber attacks in future conflicts.

The threat was highlighted by North Korea’s announcement in state-run media in September 2017 that the country’s thermonuclear device could be detonated at high altitude and produce “great destructive power … for superpowerful EMP attack.”

North Korea is suspected of cooperating with Iran on EMP and warhead miniaturization technology.

China is known to be developing nonnuclear EMP bombs that would simulate the effects of EMP from a nuclear explosion.

Russia’s EMP weapons program is said to include both strategic and tactical EMP arms, some of which reportedly are designed as antiaircraft weapons.

EMP and cyber attacks would impair the United States quickly and decisively by causing blackouts resulting from disabling large portions of the U.S. electric grid. The current grid includes three regional systems for generating and distributing electric power.

“Foreign adversaries may aptly consider nuclear EMP attack a weapon that can gravely damage the U.S. by striking at its technological Achilles Heel, without having to confront the U.S. military,” the book states.

Pry blamed bureaucratic politics and government bungling for the fact that the most recent EMP commission report revealed that recommendations made by the earlier EMP panel in 2008 were never implemented.

“A new finding of the congressional EMP commission—that notes not a single recommendation of the original EMP commission has been implemented since 2008, a decade ago—is that the chief impediment to protecting the American people from EMP is not technology or cost, but the incompetence of the U.S. government,” Pry said in a email to the Free Beacon.

“Bureaucratic politics has been the chief impediment,” he added noting the Defense, Homeland Security, and Energy Departments as well as the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission “have all failed in their duty to make EMP protection of life-sustaining critical infrastructures a high priority, and have failed to work together to achieve the necessary protection.”

President Trump, however, has made dealing with EMP a priority.

“President Trump deserves high praise for being the first president to include EMP protection of the electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures in his new National Security Strategy,” Pry said.

Congress passed the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act in 2016 directing Homeland Security to make plans to survive and recover from EMP a high priority.

“But Obama holdovers and the permanent Washington bureaucracy think they know better than the president, the Congress, and the EMP commission,” Pry said. “Only in Washington do endless studies, meetings, and conferences on EMP count as action.”

The Pentagon, Pry added, is holding up publication of several EMP commission reports that were ready for publication at the end of last year.

“What is needed is for President Trump to appoint an executive agent, as President Franklin Roosevelt did in General Lesley Groves to head the WWII Manhattan Project that invented the atomic bomb,” Pry said.

The executive agent would be able to cut through federal bureaucratic roadblocks.

“Protecting against the worst threat—nuclear EMP attack—will also mitigate all lesser threats, including from solar storms, nonnuclear EMP weapons, worst-case cyber warfare, sabotage, and severe weather,” he said.

Pry suggested that Trump could follow the example of President Dwight Eisenhower who personally oversaw development of the national highway system in the 1950s.

The cost of a high-priority counter-EMP program is relatively modest compared with the original Manhattan Project.

Pry estimates that the nuclear bomb project that required new technology and machines cost about $20 billion in current dollars.

The congressional EMP Commission calculated that the cost of hardening the national electric grid would be about $2 billion dollars.

Natural EMP can be caused by magnetic solar superstorms, like the Carrington Event in 1859, that if repeated today would cause widespread electrical disruptions, blackouts, and damage to electric grids.

A nuclear EMP attack could be carried out with a single nuclear weapon detonated at high altitude or a few weapons set off 200 miles above earth.

The nuclear EMP blasts could be fired on long- or short-range missiles, a high-altitude jet strike, or even a high-altitude balloon.

“Russia, China, and North Korea now have the capability to conduct a nuclear EMP attack against the U.S.,” the book states. “All have practiced or described contingency plans to do so.”

Terrorist or other less-sophisticated adversaries also might use EMP if they were to obtain a nuclear weapon.

Other non-EMP threats to the U.S. electric grid include cyber attacks designed to cause blackouts and sabotage against extra-high-voltage transformers using rifles, explosives, or nonnuclear EMP or directed energy weapons.

Pry, who specialized in Moscow’s nuclear war planning during 10 years at CIA, currently is executive director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security, a congressional advisory board.

“SUPERVOLCANO” WARNING-SCIENTISTS WARN THAT THE WORLD ISN’T READY FOR YELLOWSTONE ERUPTION, MILLIONS WOULD DIE

“SUPERVOLCANO” WARNING-SCIENTISTS WARN THAT THE WORLD ISN’T READY FOR YELLOWSTONE ERUPTION, MILLIONS WOULD DIE

A YELLOWSTONE volcano eruption could kill scores of people, rock economies, disrupt air travel and even threaten peace as the world is unprepared for the next major volcanic blast, scientists have warned.

A team of volcanologists said the next major eruption could very well happen in our lifetimes, and urged governments to start making emergency plans.

In a paper published in Geosphere, authors wrote: “A VEI-7 eruption could destabilise financial centres, air travel, national economies and even peace between nations.”

A city could be decimated if a VEI-7 hit, as hot gases, lava and ash can travel 60 miles from the volcano, researchers said.

The study said: “Any town or city in the path would be destroyed, and death tolls could reach millions unless mass evacuations had been made.”

Death tolls could reach millions unless mass evacuations had been made.

Coastal communities could even be wiped out if the lava enters the sea triggering tsunamis.An eruption could also cause massive economic issues across the world.

Researchers wrote: “Given the incredibly complex logistics of food, water, health care and other supplies in an urban area, imagine the logistical nightmare if transport within any large city were stopped even for a week or two.

“Millions of hungry people do not stay quiet for long. National leadership may be challenged and replaced.”

The most recent major eruption was in 1980 when Mount St Helen in Washington state blew killing hundreds of people and even causing global cooling.

                                            Yellowstone was hit by 10 small earthquakes last month
That was a VEI-6 eruption, and exerts say a VEI-7 eruption would bring about a completely different level of catastrophe.Writing in Geosphere, the experts said massive 7 eruptions occur on average twice every 1,000 years.

The last eruption registering 7 or higher on the Volcanic Explosively Index (VEI) happened in Indonesia in 1815.

Chris Newhall, volcanologist and lead author of the paper, told Nature: “The next VEI-7 eruption could occur within our lifetimes, or it could be hundreds of years down the road.”

It comes after fears for a Yellowstone supervolcano eruption have been sparked after a swarm of 10 earthquakes struck the seismically volatile US national park yesterday following another quake the day before.Yellowstone was hit by 10 small earthquakes last month, setting alarm bells ringing with the park’s fearsome supervolcano already “under strain” according to one expert.

Seismologists from UNAVCO, a nonprofit university-governed consortium, said the site was “under strain”.

They said “the strain signal is larger than would be expected if the crust under Yellowstone were completely solid”.

However these findings are “no cause for alarm”, they said, and reflect the expected measurements of a volcano which has been building up for close to a million years.

‘Ring of Fire’ Threatens a Larger Earthquake – CALIFORNIA ROCKED BY THREE EARTHQUAKES IN ONE DAY. What’s Going On With The Ring of Fire?

‘Ring of Fire’ Threatens a Larger Earthquake – CALIFORNIA ROCKED BY THREE EARTHQUAKES IN ONE DAY. What’s Going On With The Ring of Fire?

Three earthquakes hit California on Thursday, one as far south as Trabuco Canyon and a second all the way up to a spot off the coast of Eureka, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

A third earthquake struck near Lytle Creek, California, registering a 2.5 on the Richter scale. Trabuco Canyon, which is close to Lytle Creek, registered 4.0. Both cities are near Los Angeles.

The northernmost earthquake, closest to Eureka, registered a 5.8 on the Richter scale. However, because it hit 100 miles off the coastline, the vibrations were not as strong when they reached land. ABC7 reports that residents of Ferndale, California, in Humboldt County, felt the earthquake, but there are currently no reports of damage or injuries.

According to the USGS, when the earthquake hit at 8:39 a.m., the ripples of seismic activity reached from the southern coast of Oregon to nearly Ukiah, California, about 400 miles away.

Over the past seven days, California has experienced 15 earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater up and down the state, including two that hit off the coast in the Pacific Ocean.

Many of the tremors occurred near or along the San Andreas fault, where tectonic plates shift along the western edge of the state. The San Andreas fault is known to be particularly prone to earthquakes, and scientists believe that it will someday rock the state with “The Big One.”

Smaller earthquakes often precede bigger ones, but it’s hard to say whether this activity is indicative of a bigger earthquake to come, and if so, when.

Underwater seismic activity can sometimes cause tsunamis, which can cause major destruction when they reach land. The National Tsunami Warning Center tweeted that the earthquake off the coast of Northern California is not expected to cause a tsunami.

The California coast is part of the “Ring of Fire,” an area where there are an abnormal number of underwater volcanoes. Made up of the Pacific coastline of the U.S., Asia and the Pacific Islands, this area is prone to earthquakes.

Scientists predict that 2018 will be a particularly bad year for earthquakes. On Thursday, an even bigger earthquake registering a 6.2 on the Richter scale hit Japan.

Even SWAT Teams are Helpless Against This…

What is the Ring of Fire?

The Ring of Fire refers to a sprawling, horseshoe-shaped geological disaster zone in the Pacific, according to ABC News. The ring stretches 25,000 miles from New Zealand through Indonesia, the Philippines and Japan to Alaska, Canada and the West Coast down to South America. It contains 452 volcanoes and several tectonic plates in the earth’s crust.

Earth’s so-called ‘Ring of Fire’ is a horseshoe-shaped geological disaster zone that is a hot bed for tectonic and volcanic activity.

Roughly 90 per cent of the world’s earthquakes occur in the belt, which is also home to more than 450 volcanoes. 

The seismic region stretches along the Pacific Ocean coastlines, where the Pacific Plate grinds against other plates that form the Earth’s crust.

It loops from New Zealand to Chile, passing through the coasts of Asia and the Americas on the way. 

In total, the loop makes up a 25,000-mile (40,000-kilometre) -long zone prone to frequent earthquakes and eruptions.

The region is susceptible to disasters because it is home to a vast number of ‘subduction zones’, areas where tectonic plates overlap.

Earthquakes are triggered when these plates scrape or slide underneath one another, and when that happens at sea it can spawn tsunamis.

Of the recent string of natural disasters in the Ring of Fire, Professor Elders said: ‘It’s not a cause for concern. Activity in the region is subject to variation.’

Alaska’s 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck off Kodiak Island early Tuesday, prompting a tsunami warning for a large swath of the state’s coast.

Some residents fled to higher ground, but officials cancelled the warning following a few tense hours after waves failed to show up at coastal Alaskan communities.

Alaska’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management said there have been no reports of damage, so far.

On the other side of the Pacific, fifteen people, including eight soldiers, skiing on the slopes of a volcano in central Japan were injured Tuesday.

Also this week, a powerful earthquake struck the coast of Indonesia forcing thousands to evacuate. The Indonesian island of Java was hit by the 6.4 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday. Pictured is damage to a house on the island following the quake

An eruption at Mount Kusatsu-Shirane near Tokyo, Japan, sparked an avalanche that killed one and left scores stranded up the mountain.

There are 8 active volcanoes in California. Which ones top the watch list?

California is more than Earthquake Country. It’s Volcano Country, too. With eight active volcanoes, one of the most closely watched is just three hours up the highway from the state Capitol – Lassen.

“The threat is real,” says scientist Maggie Mangan of the USGS. Video contains archive footage of the last time Lassen erupted, in 1915.

REVEALED:US PREPARES FOR BIG ONE MAG 9.0 EARTHQUAKE THAT WILL HIT FIVE TIMES SPEED OF SOUND

REVEALED:US PREPARES FOR BIG ONE MAG 9.0 EARTHQUAKE THAT WILL HIT FIVE TIMES SPEED OF SOUND

 

FEMA warns California! Get off the coast! M9 or greater is Imminent! 

Scientists warns California! Get off the coast! M9 or greater is Imminent! Earth crustal shift, Cascadia Subduction Zone about to slip! Even the New Madrid has tripled in earthquake swarms! Prepare Now!!

Many believe, that all these “movements” of awareness,and increasing over the past 5 years, is part of a larger problem. The government has been preparing with underground shelters. Moving strategic departments of the military, and intelligence out to Colorado. The Norway “Doomsday Seed Vault”.. And the elite bunkers built, all over the world.

And why were there so many Apocalyptic movies released in the past 10 years?

The threat of a massive earthquake and tsunami have been looming over the Pacific Northwest for decades.

Now, experts are taking it seriously. This summer the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) is conducting a large-scale drill to see if it’s ready for worst.

The test will simulate a 9.0 magnitude quake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, followed by a tsunami that could create waves more than 50ft-high.

THE THREAT OF ‘THE BIG ONE’ 

Experts say an event of this kind occurs roughly every 400-600 years, and the area is now overdue for a similar quake that could leave thousands dead or displaced.

Worst-case scenarios show that more than 1,000 bridges in Oregon and Washington state could either collapse or be so damaged that they are unusable.

The main coastal highway, US Route 101, will suffer heavy damage from the shaking and from the tsunami.

Traffic on Interstate 5 — one of the most important thoroughfares in the nation — will likely have to be rerouted because of large cracks in the pavement.

Seattle, Portland and other urban areas could suffer considerable damage, such as the collapse of structures built before codes were updated to take into account a mega-quake.

Researchers say such an event of this kind occurs roughly every 400-600 years, and the area is overdue a similar quake that could leave thousands dead or displaced.

The last time the region faced a ‘Big One’ was in 1906 when San Andres unleashed anearthquake that killed roughly 3,000 people.

This summer’s drill, dubbed Cascadia Rising, will test to see how local and state emergency responders, Fema, and a number of military groups work together.

The simulation will run from June, and will use past events to help plan the future response.

In April, researchers speaking at the Seismological Society of America’s (SSA) Annual Meeting, in Reno, Nevada said plans for managing tsunami risk on the West Coast are still evolving.

Meanwhile, geologists are searching for evidence of past tsunamis in the region to help them refine their estimates of tsunami risk.

There is, for instance, the evidence for frequent and large earthquakes and tsunamis occurring within the past 2,000 years in parts of the Eastern Aleutian Islands.

There are signs that these earthquakes have spanned the boundary between the locked and creeping portions of the region’s megathrust fault.

Earthquakes in the area could cause significant tsunami effects across the Pacific, especially in Hawaii and California.

‘Despite the fact that we have learned a significant amount about the earthquake sources for tsunamis, there are gaps in our understanding of past tsunamis, especially prehistoric tsunamis,’ says Rick Wilson, a senior engineering geologist with the California Geological Survey.

‘If we can demonstrate when and where tsunamis occurred in the past, that information will give us a better understanding of the return periods in these areas, and that can go into the probabilistic analyses that help us understand our hazard and risk better.’

Wilson, who also serves as the science coordinator for the State of California Tsunami Preparedness and Hazard Mitigation Program, noted that more than 440,000 people have died worldwide since 1850 as a result of tsunamis.

A powerful earthquake thought to be as large as 9.2 magnitude ripped through the earth in 1700, along the 600 mile stretch of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, causing severe shaking and a massive tsunami. An animation from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center plotted the path of the tsunami as it traveled from the US to Japan.

WHAT WILL CAUSE KILLER QUAKE?

The Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ) ‘megathrust’ fault is a 1,000km-long line that stretches from Northern Vancouver Island to Cape Mendocino California.

It separates the Juan de Fuca, a 700-mile chunk in the Pacific Ocean, and North America plates.

For more than 300 years, the two plates have been pushing against one another.

Eventually, the Juan de Fuca will be pushed underneath the North America plate, causing the region to sink at least six feet.

The San Andreas Fault in California, has a quieter, far more dangerous cousin that could make itself known at any moment. Running from Northern California to British Columbia, the Cascadia subduction zone can deliver a quake that’s many times stronger than San Andreas

The deadly tsunamis caused by the 2004 Sumatran earthquake and the 2011 Tohoku earthquake brought increased public attention to tsunami science, warning and preparation.

At the SSA meeting, Wilson will discuss how California officials used state tsunami response playbooks to respond to a tsunami advisory issued after the September 2015 magnitude 8.3 Illapel earthquake in Chile.

The playbooks were created after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, ‘when there was very little consistency between communities [in California] in what they did,’ Wilson says.

‘Some evacuated their entire zone, some just evacuated their beaches.’

The new playbooks offer a variety of action plans depending on the size of the tsunami from a distant source, Wilson says.

The future of tsunami response and preparedness might come from new technologies such as camera-bearing drones.

These could  send video messages of incoming waves to convince coastal dwellers to evacuate, says Masa Hayashi, a retired IBM engineer presenting at the SSA meeting.

And there’s also the remote possibility that the trigger for a tsunami might not come from an earthquake, but from an asteroid strike on Earth.


UPDATE  : How You Protect Yourself When a Quake Hits Might Be All Wrong -How to Prepare Your Home for Natural Disasters

In an SSA talk, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researcher Souheil Ezzedine will share data from a study that models the effects of an asteroid-generated tsunami, on several coastline cities in the U.S., depending on the asteroid’s impact off the U.S. East Coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and into the Pacific Ocean near San Francisco.

Last month, scientists were finally able to trace the origins of the historic tsunami that struck the coasts of Japan just before midnight on January 27, 1700.

They linked it to a powerful seismic event in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, along the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

‘Cascadia can make an earthquake almost 30 times more energetic than the San Andreas to start with,’ Chris Goldfinger, a professor of geophysics at Oregon State University told CNN.

‘Then it generates a tsunami at the same time, which the side-by-side motion of the San Andreas can’t do’.

The Cascadia could deliver a huge 9.0-magnitude quake and the shaking could last anything from three to five minutes, scientists claim.

‘In this case, three minutes – and I’ve been in a 9 in Japan – three minutes is an eternity,’ said Goldfinger. ‘It is a very, very long time.’

Goldfinger says we’ll lose bridges, highway routes and that the coast will probably be entirely closed down.

As a result it would be difficult to get around, and rescue crews will be overwhelmed.

Federal, state and military officials have been working together to draft plans to be followed when the ‘Big One’ happens.

These contingency plans reflect deep anxiety about the potential gravity of the looming disaster: upward of 14,000 people dead in the worst-case scenarios, 30,000 injured, thousands left homeless and the region’s economy setback for years, if not decades.

As a response, what planners envision is a deployment of civilian and military personnel and equipment that would eclipse the response to any natural disaster that has occurred thus far in the US.

There would be waves of cargo planes, helicopters and ships, as well as tens of thousands of soldiers, emergency officials, mortuary teams, police officers, firefighters, engineers, medical personnel and other specialists.

‘The response will be orders of magnitude larger than Hurricane Katrina or Super Storm Sandy,’ said Lt. Col. Clayton Braun of the Washington State Army National Guard.

ADVICE ON HOW TO SURVIVE A PACIFIC NORTHWEST EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI

This diagram show the areas where land will be most affected by the shocks, causing landslides or liquefaction.

Last year, scientists outlined their alarmingly unhelpful tips on how to survive the earthquake that will hit the Pacific Northwest.

The killer quake along Cascadia, a fault line which runs from Cape Mendocino, California, to Vancouver Island, Canada, is 72 years overdue, according to peer-reviewed studies.

The ‘Big One’ will hit when Juan de Fuca, a 700-mile chunk of the Pacific Ocean, slides under Canada and America, causing the entire coastal region to sink at least six feet.

When – not if – it arrives, it is unlikely the people of coastal Oregon, Washington and California will be able to escape.

But if they want to try, there are a few tips they should keep in mind.

Run, don’t drive, to higher ground, says Kevin Cupples, the city planner for the town of Seaside, Oregon, in an interview with the New Yorker.

The force of the quake will cause liquefaction, when solid ground acts like liquid, across vast swathes of the porous region.

In the areas that aren’t ‘liquefied’, the highways will likely be crumpled by landslides, with 30,000 avalanches set to hit Seattle alone.

Citizens will have a 20-minute interval to climb to the highest altitude possible before the full force of the tsunami hits, scientists predict.

Their alert will be when dogs start barking.

The first sign the quake is coming will be a set of compressional waves, only audible by dogs. Then there will be the quake, then 20 minutes later, the tsunami.

Geographers estimate that many could survive just by walking – however, they need to be going at least 3.5mph.

If everyone ups their average speed from 2.5mph to 3.5mph, the death toll drops to 15,970. About 70 per cent of them would be in Washington, nearly 30 per cent in Oregon and only 4 per cent in California.

And there is no point being a hero. ‘When that tsunami is coming, you run,’ Jay Wilson, the chair of the Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Commission, tells the New Yorker.

‘You protect yourself, you don’t turn around, you don’t go back to save anybody. You run for your life.’

The only other safety measure is to relocate away from the Pacific north west.

Oregon’s response plan is called the Cascadia Playbook, named after the threatening offshore fault — the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

The plan, unveiled last year, has been handed out to key officials so the state can respond quickly when disaster strikes.

‘That playbook is never more than 100 feet from where I am,’ said Andrew Phelps, director of the Oregon Office of Emergency Management.

A magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that devastated parts of Japan in 2011 gave greater clarity to what the Pacific Northwest needs to do to improve its readiness for a similar catastrophe.

‘The Japanese quake and tsunami allowed light bulbs to go off for policymakers,’ Phelps said.

Much still needs to be done, and it is impossible to fully prepare for a catastrophe of this magnitude, but those responsible for drafting the evolving contingency plans believe they are making headway.

Worst-case scenarios show that more than 1,000 bridges in Oregon and Washington state could either collapse or be so damaged that they are unusable.

The main coastal highway, US Route 101, will suffer heavy damage from the shaking and from the tsunami.

Traffic on Interstate 5 — one of the most important thoroughfares in the nation — will likely have to be rerouted because of large cracks in the pavement.

Seattle, Portland and other urban areas could suffer considerable damage, such as the collapse of structures built before codes were updated to take into account a mega-quake.

The last full rip of the Cascadia Subduction Zone happened in January 1700.

The exact date and destructive power was determined from buried forests along the Pacific Northwest coast and an ‘orphan tsunami’ that washed ashore in Japan.

Geologists digging in coastal marshes and offshore canyon bottoms have also found evidence of earlier great earthquakes and tsunamis.

The inferred timeline of those events gives a recurrence interval between Cascadia megaquakes of roughly every 400 to 600 years, reports the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.

BE PREPARED CALIFORNIA : Earthquake ‘Thermometer’ Shows LA Region Is Boiling To Northridge LEVEL-California Could Be Hit By an 8.2 Mega-Earthquake, And It Would Be Catastrophic

BE PREPARED CALIFORNIA : Earthquake ‘Thermometer’ Shows LA Region Is Boiling To Northridge LEVEL-California Could Be Hit By an 8.2 Mega-Earthquake, And It Would Be Catastrophic

The Los Angeles region’s “earthquake potential score,” a gauge for assessing the likelihood of a destructive temblor, has surpassed the level assigned to the 6.7 magnitude Northridge Earthquake of 1994, according to a University of California Davis professor.

The score is created through “nowcasting,” a method of using small earthquakes to mark the current progress between larger and more dangerous ones, according to John Rundle, a professor of geology and physics at UC Davis. Rundle developed the idea in collaboration with researchers from UC Irvine and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

“The data says that within 100 kilometers of Los Angeles, as judged by the number of small earthquakes, we are in the same state of hazard as we were just prior to Northridge,” Rundle said.

The Northridge Earthquake killed dozens, injured more than 8,000 people and disrupted life in Los Angeles and the surrounding counties for months. Though the score gives a sense of risk, Rundle stressed nowcasting, unlike forecasting, doesn’t attempt to predict when the next earthquake might hit or how damaging the quake could be.

Since 1933, three earthquakes with a magnitude larger than 6 have occurred in Los Angeles, with 23 to 38 years separating each. Northridge struck a few months shy of 24 years ago today.

Last year, Rundle and his co-authors published their research on nowcasting in “Earth and Space Science.” In an update this week, Rundle calculated the earthquake potential score, or EPS, just before Northridge was at 77.8 percent. There were 34 earthquakes, with greater than a 4.5 magnitude, between the previous 6.6 magnitude San Fernando Earthquake in 1971 and the subsequent 1994 quake.

By comparison, Los Angeles’ EPS is currently at 80.3 percent, with 31 earthquakes greater than a 4.5 magnitude between 1994 and Friday.

“This does not necessarily mean that a (greater than magnitude 6) earthquake will occur in the near future in that region, it could be years away,” Rundle said in an email Friday. “But given the fact that there have been 3 such events in the last century (the 1933 Long Beach, the 1971 San Fernando, and the 1994 Northridge), you can depend on the fact that such an earthquake will occur at some point.”

With nowcasting, the risk only increases with more time. Each small earthquake raises the score and it only resets to zero once the larger quake occurs. Nowcasting isn’t a scientific model, instead Rundle described it as a simple and broad interpretation of regional data that does not factor in the complexities of the area’s earthquake faults.

Lisa Grant Ludwig, a professor of public health at UC Irvine and a co-author on the study, prefers to think of nowcasting as a snapshot of “where we are now.” She compared the hazard rating to looking out the window, seeing the light dimming and knowing the sun will set, even if you don’t know what time exactly.

“We’re not bright and early in the morning. We’re getting late in the day,” she said. “The earthquake potential is uncomfortably high, anyway you look at it.”

Ludwig’s background is in geology, but she switched her focus to public health because she wanted to motivate people to prepare for the inevitable.

“We’re never going to be able to stop earthquakes, they’re going to happen no matter what,” she said. “We have to act before, not after.”

The idea behind the earthquake potential score is to make it easier to understand the threat. The calculations could be used to display hazard levels in real time for major cities around the world. The researchers have toyed with a website that would display each city’s score, but it isn’t yet publicly available.

If the earthquake potential score is a thermometer, we’re getting “uncomfortably warm,” Ludwig said. Now, particularly in light of recent natural disasters, is the time to prepare, by creating an emergency supply kit and a disaster plan, she said.

“People don’t like to deal with it, but the impact, when it happens, will depend in a large part on what we did, or did not do, before the earthquake,” she said.

California could be hit by an 8.2 mega-earthquake, and it would be catastrophic.

The magnitude 8.2 earthquake that ravaged southern Mexico on Sept. 7 was the largest to shake the country in nearly a century.

Like California, Mexico is a seismically active region that has seen smaller quakes that have caused death and destruction. But the Sept. 7 temblor is a reminder that even larger quakes — while rare — do occur.

Scientists say it’s possible for Southern California to be hit by a magnitude 8.2 earthquake. Such a quake would be far more destructive to the Los Angeles area because the San Andreas fault runs very close to and underneath densely populated areas.

The devastating quakes that hit California over the last century were far smaller than the Sept. 7 temblor, which Mexican authorities set at magnitude 8.2 and the U.S. Geological Survey placed at 8.1. Mexico’s earthquake produced four times more energy than the great 1906 San Francisco earthquake, a magnitude 7.8, which killed 3,000 people and sparked a fire that left much of the city in ruins.

Southern California’s most recent mega-quake was in 1857, also estimated to be magnitude 7.8, when the area was sparsely populated. (That was considerably stronger than the 7.1 quake that hit Mexico , causing buildings to collapse and leading to a significant loss of life).

Here’s what a hypothetical magnitude 8.2 earthquake would look like in Southern California — a quake that begins near the Mexican border and moves north and west through L.A. County into central California

A magnitude 8.2 earthquake would rupture the San Andreas fault from the Salton Sea — close to the Mexican border — all the way to Monterey County. The fault would rupture through counties including Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino.

An 8.2 earthquake would be far worse here because the San Andreas fault runs right through areas such as the Coachella Valley — home to Palm Springs — and the San Bernardino Valley, along with the San Gabriel Mountains north of Los Angeles. The fault is about 30 miles from downtown Los Angeles.

The Sept. 7 earthquake occurred in the ocean off the Mexican coast and began about 450 miles from Mexico City — and it was relatively deep, starting about 43 miles under the surface.

In Mexico, “you’ve got [many] people a pretty long way aways from it,” seismologist Lucy Jones said. But in Southern California, “we’d have a lot of people right on top of it. It would be shallow, and it runs through our backyard.”

A magnitude 8.2 on the San Andreas fault would cause damage in every city in Southern California, Jones has said, from Palm Springs to San Luis Obispo.

WORSE SHAKING THAN NORTHRIDGE

Intense shaking would be worse

Southern California would feel even worse shaking if a magnitude 8.2 earthquake hit here than what was experienced in Mexico on Sept. 7. Mexico’s earthquake struck under the ocean and was deep; “violent” shaking — calculated as intensity 9 shaking by the USGS — struck only a relatively small part of the country that happens to be sparsely populated.

M 8.2 – 101km SSW of Tres Picos, Mexico

That’s the same intensity that was felt in the worst-hit neighborhood in the 1994 magnitude 6.7 Northridge earthquake.

Even though the Northridge and Mexico seismic events vary widely in magnitude — the Mexico earthquake on Sept. 7 produced 178 times more total energy — Angelenos also felt “violent” shaking in 1994 because the Northridge earthquake struck directly underneath heavily populated areas and was extremely shallow, striking between just four and 12 miles under the surface.

M 6.7 – 1km NNW of Reseda, CA

A magnitude 8.2 earthquake on the San Andreas would produce shaking more intense than either the Mexico or Northridge earthquakes.

It would bring intensity level 10 shaking, which is perceived by humans as “extreme.” Such shaking would blanket huge swaths of Southern California — an earthquake that no one alive today has experienced in this region.

M 7.8 Scenario Earthquake – Shakeout2 Full Scenario

The ShakeOut scenario envisioned the earthquake beginning to move the San Andreas fault at the Salton Sea close to the Mexican border, then moving rapidly to the northwest toward L.A. County.

This animation shows how intense shaking is directed from the San Andreas fault into the Los Angeles Basin. Areas of yellow indicate strong shaking; orange is “very strong” shaking and red is “violent” or “extreme” shaking, causing collapses. (U.S. Geological Survey / Southern California Earthquake Center)

Mexico City rode out the Sept. 7 earthquake better than a devastating 1985 temblor that killed thousands of people there, in large part because the capital was so far away from the epicenter of this week’s quake. The capital is about double the distance from the Sept. 7 epicenter as it was from the earthquake that struck 32 years ago.

WHAT AN 8.2 EARTHQUAKE COULD DO

A mega-earthquake in the Southland

The U.S. Geological Survey published a hypothetical scenario of what a magnitude 7.8 earthquake on the San Andreas fault would look like. The scenario is still a useful look to imagine what an 8.2 would do to much of Southern California. Both earthquakes would bring generally the same intensity of shaking to Los Angeles, but the 8.2 earthquake would send more intense shaking to areas farther north and west, such as Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo.

The death toll could be one of the worst for a natural disaster in U.S. history: nearly 1,800, about the same number of people killed in Hurricane Katrina.

More than 900 could die from fire; more than 400 from the collapse of vulnerable steel-frame buildings; more than 250 from other building damage; and more than 150 from transportation accidents, such as car crashes due to stoplights being out or broken bridges.

Los Angeles County could suffer the highest death toll, more than 1,000; followed by Orange County, with more than 350 dead; San Bernardino County, with more than 250 dead; and Riverside County, with more than 70 dead. Nearly 50,000 could be injured.

DAMAGE TO INFRASTRUCTURE

Freeways, water threatened

Main freeways to Las Vegas and Phoenix that cross the San Andreas fault would be destroyed in this scenario; Interstate 10 crosses the fault in a dozen spots, and Interstate 15 would see the roadway sliced where it crosses the fault, with one part of the roadway shifted from the other by 15 feet, Jones said.

Scared? Don’t be. Here are tips on how to prepare -Video Below

“Those freeways cross the fault, and when the fault moves, they will be destroyed, period,” Jones said. “To be that earthquake, it has to move that fault, and it has to break those roads.”

The aqueducts that bring in 88% of Los Angeles’ water supply and cross the San Andreas fault all could be damaged or destroyed, Jones said.

A big threat to life would be collapsed buildings. As many as 900 unretrofitted brick buildings close to the fault could come tumbling down on occupants, pedestrians on sidewalks and even roads, crushing cars and buses in the middle of the street.

Fifty brittle concrete buildings housing 7,500 people could completely or partially collapse. Five high-rise steel buildings — of a type known to be seismically vulnerable — holding 5,000 people could completely collapse.

Some 500,000 to 1 million people could be displaced from their homes, Jones said.

THREAT TO ELECTRICAL GRID

Southern California could be isolated

Southern California could be isolated for some time, with the region surrounded by mountains and earthquake faults. The Cajon Pass — the gap between the San Gabriel and San Bernardino mountains through which Interstate 15 is built, and the main route to Las Vegas — is also home to the San Andreas fault and a potentially explosive mix of pipelines carrying gasoline and natural gas, and overhead electricity lines.

All it would take is for the fuel line to break and a spark to create an explosion. “The explosion results in a crater,” the report says.

ShakeOut co-author Keith Porter, research professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, warned in a 2011 study in the journal Earthquake Spectra that under certain conditions, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake could create such a sudden interruption of high-voltage interstate transmission of electricity that potentially all of the western U.S. could lose power.”

Power could be restored within hours in other states, the scenario said. But restoring power in Southern California could take several days.

There could be up to 100,000 landslides, scientists say, based off how many landslides have occurred in past magnitude 7.8 earthquakes. “The really big earthquakes … are much more destabilizing to the hillsides,” Jones said.

Patients are evacuated after a San Fernando Valley hospital collapsed in the 1971 Sylmar earthquake.

THREAT OF FIRE

Death toll could be high in fire

Thousands could be forced to evacuate as fires spread across Southern California; 1,200 blazes could be too large to be controlled by a single fire engine company, and firefighting efforts would be hampered by traffic gridlock and a lack of water from broken pipes. Super-fires could destroy hundreds of city blocks filled with dense clusters of wood-frame homes and apartments.

The death toll could mount as hundreds of people trapped in collapsed buildings are unable to be rescued before flames burn through. Possible locations for the conflagrations include South Los Angeles, Riverside, Santa Ana and San Bernardino.

“If the earthquake happens in [hot] weather … or in a Santa Ana condition, the fires are going to become much more catastrophic. If it happens during a real rainy time, we’re going to have a lot more landslides,” Jones said.

Several dams could be shaken so hard that “they would be so compromised that they would require emergency evacuation,” Jones said. Even damage to just a single dam above San Bernardino could force 30,000 people out of their homes, the ShakeOut report said.

AN EARLY WARNING?

System could give Southern California life-saving seconds to prepare

A seismic warning system for the West Coast has been under development for years by the U.S. Geological Survey, the nation’s lead earthquake monitoring agency. President Trump’s budget would have ended the system before it launched. Officials were looking for “sensible and rational reductions and making hard choices to reach a balanced budget by 2027,” according to the administration’s proposal.

But the proposal to end the funding raised bipartisan complaints up and down the coast. Twenty-eight lawmakers in the California Legislature, including leaders from both parties, urged officials to protect the earthquake early warning system. Members of Congress from Southern California to the Canadian border say the system is crucial to public safety.

In July, a congressional committee voted to keep funding. The proposal awaits a full vote by both houses of Congress.

The earthquake early warning system works on a simple principle: The seismic waves from an earthquake travel at the speed of sound through rock — slower than today’s communications systems.

For example, it would take more than a minute for a magnitude 7.8 earthquake that started at the Salton Sea to shake up Los Angeles, 150 miles away, traveling along the state’s longest fault, the San Andreas.

How To Make The Perfect Hay Bale Gardening For Spring-Step By Step-Hay Bale Gardening Effortless Food Production with No Weeds, No Fertilizer & Less Watering

How To Make The Perfect Hay Bale Gardening For Spring-Step By Step-Hay Bale Gardening Effortless Food Production with No Weeds, No Fertilizer & Less Watering

We have decided to do Hay Bale gardening this year in Louisiana. This video shows us getting everything set up and the conditioning process started. No more worries about the yard flooding. The Hay Bale Garden series begins….

Hay bale gardening is probably the most fun you’ll have growing your own food and herbs, requiring almost no work or maintenance.

After a search online to find the simplest and easiest “no work” gardening method, I stumbled upon straw bale gardening. The concept is simple: You plant directly into bales of straw, and as the season progresses, the straw is broken down into virgin soil that nourishes the plants from inside the bale. One amazing benefit of this method of gardening is that the bales provide a raised bed, which keeps predators away and makes picking your vegetal treasures at the end of the season easy on the back. I watched every video I could find on the subject, and have since concluded that using HAY bales instead of STRAW bales is far superior.

Why Hay Bales are Superior to Straw Bales?

Before we get into why hay bales are superior to straw bales, let’s first define what they are:
Straw bales are basically stalks of plants, usually corn, that have been dried out and baled together into various shapes and sizes.
Hay bales are grasses that have been dried and baled together.

In my research, the idea that hay bales may have seeds in them and could grow weeds is the same reasoning reiterated time and time again by proponents of straw bale gardening. The reason why this idea holds little water is that when nitrogen is added to feed the bacteria and fungi to start the decomposition process of the bale, a process called “Conditioning your bale”, the interior of the bale can reach temperatures as high as 130 degrees Fahrenheit or more.

The likelihood of seeds surviving these extreme temperatures is slim, and a number of other benefits that come from using hay bales make it a far superior approach in my opinion.

-Straw is likely made from genetically modified plant matter – The problem with straw bales is that they will usually be made of genetically modified corn or soy. Do you really want your food growing in decomposing genetically modified plant matter?

-No fertilizer needed with hay – Hay is made of dried grasses, and for its ability to convert sunlight and soil minerals into dense nutrition, it has been said that grass is the healthiest plant on the planet. When we use hay bales for gardening (as opposed to straw bales), the compost that is formed within the bale to feed the plants is far superior in nutrition and, unlike straw bales, no fertilizer needs to be added to feed your plants throughout the season.

Less Watering – Straw holds water less effectively than hay, so instead of watering once per day with hay bales, you might have to do it 2 or 3 times per day.I like your concept

How to Grow a Hay Bale Garden

1

The first step to growing a hay bale garden is to acquire your hay bales. Take a look on your local classifieds like Kijiji or Craigslist and find a local farmer who is selling them. Once you find a nearby farmer with 40lb hay bales for sale, email them and arrange a time to pick them up or have them delivered to you.

Once you have the bales and have arranged them in your yard, the next step is to “condition” your bales. Buy yourself some 42-0-0 fertilizer, or some urea (nitrogen), and from here you will be introducing nitrogen into the bales over a 10-day period that will have the fungi, bacteria and insects breaking down your bales into fresh, virgin compost to feed your plants. You can also pee on your bales, as it is high in nitrogen and minerals, so start saving up pee in bottles for a fertilizer cost savings of about $40.

Days 1,3,5,7,9 – Add 1/2 cup of nitrogen to your bales and spray them with water so the nitrogen will soak in.
Days 2,4,6,8,10 – Soak the bale with water only.

1

During the conditioning process, the temperature of the bale will rise significantly, from my research, up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact, the bales will become so hot that it’s important to keep the bales wet to eliminate the risk of a fire. Although risk of fire is minimal, keep this in mind when deciding where to stage your bales. When the conditioning process is complete, you’ll know it because the temperature inside the bale will have come back down from hot to warm. Now you’re ready to plant!

Simply plant your vegetable seeds or germinated seeds into the bale, water them once a day and you’re on your way to healthy produce in a few exciting months. The best part is, at the end of the season you’ll have yourself a heap of fresh compost that you can further compost or add to your other gardens or perennial plant beds for nourishment.

MAJOR EARTHQUAKE WARNING:US WEST COAST EARTHQUAKE WARNING AS CASCADIA SUBDUCTION ZONE SURGES

MAJOR EARTHQUAKE WARNING:US WEST COAST EARTHQUAKE WARNING AS CASCADIA SUBDUCTION ZONE SURGES

An ocean data buoy is alerting to an “event” in thCascadia Subduction Zone off the west coast of Oregon. This is where a magnitude 9 earthquake hit in 1700.

According to the data buoy, the water column height (depth) fell sharply within minutes off the coast of Oregon, signaling the land beneath the ocean has suddenly “sunk.”   Here are the graphs showing what the ocean data buoy recorded:

As of 0231:30, the initial water column height is 2738.80 Meters deep (8985.56 feet).  Two minutes and thirty seconds later, that same water column height had dropped to 2738.66 Meters deep (8985.10 feet). 

Where did the four inches of water disappear to?  Answer:  The earth sunk; and continued to sink for the next several HOURS.  As you can see from the second chart above, from 0230 GMT to 0600 GMT, the ocean continued to sink to 2737.7 meters deep (8981.95 feet).  The buoy is too far away from shore to be affected by high/low tide, so where did the four feet of ocean water disappear to?

This means a Tectonic Plate in the Ocean named the “Juan de Fuca Plate” has made a sudden, eastward movement and slipped beneath another Tectonic Plate named the “North American Plate.” This type of event is usually followed by a massive upward movement of the North American Plate causing a very severe earthquake.

Here’s a map of the relevant Tectonic Plates:a

In the year 1700, a similar movement of plates is believed to have been the cause of a Magnitude 9.0 earthquake, which devastated the west coast of north America, and generated an ocean Tsunami that washed inland upwards of ten MILES!

FOUR MEAGER FEET OF WATER? 

Lest you think that four feet of ocean depth is nothing to be concerned about, be reminded that the entire column of water . . . all 8985 feet of it . . . is what dropped four feet.  And it did so over an area several miles wide!

When the tectonic plate snaps back upward, it can launch that entire 8985 foot column of water upward and toward the shore!

As the continental shelf rises toward the shore (the ocean gets more shallow) that 8985 foot column of water starts accumulating upon itself as it moves toward shore, becoming one massive wave, perhaps 45-50 feet tall, that hits the shore for twenty minutes!

Now do you see why this is a big deal?

If such a thing were to happen today, hundreds-of-thousands of people would be killed as a fifteen meter (45 foot) wall of water came ashore well inland passing Interstate 5 and destroying everything its path from the beach to Interstate 5.

Even SWAT Teams are Helpless Against This… 

Here is a map of I-5, everything to the left of it (to the west) would be wiped out:a

Mount Hood Volcano Can Be Triggered to Erupt

This type of Tectonic Movement has a direct effect upon the volcanos in the Cascadia Volcanic Chain, in particular, Mount Hood.

When the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate goes beneath the North American plate, it begins to get crushed.  The heat from the friction of the two massive plates rubbing together, melts the Juan de Fuca plate into Magma (lava).

Directly next to the Cascadia Subduction Zone is the Mount Hood Volcano.  Here’s a graphic to show you the relevant details:

All along the Cascadia Subduction Zone are volcanoes.  Most of them are inactive, but some are quite active.  Here is a map of the volcanoes in the Cascade Mountains Range, so you have an understanding of the pressure relief valves (volcanoes) created over millions of years by these two tectonic plates scraping together.  Mount Hood is to the right (east of) Portland, Oregon . . .

There is a magma tunnel leading directly from the Cascadia Subduction Zone straight up into Mount Hood!  As the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate is being crushed (right now) it is melting into magma (lava).  Whether or not there is enough magma to cause Mount Hood to erupt is unknown.

There has merely been an “event” in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Oregon in the Cascadia Subduction Zone.  This is a very rare occurrence with serious implications.  It is worthy of very close monitoring by persons in the potentially-affected areas.  This event is a potential warning of a POSSIBLE pending large earthquake on the west coast.  There could also be an eruption at Mount Hood.

Folks in Washington, Oregon and northern California as well as in Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA, should make certain they are prepared to take emergency action in the event a major quake does strike.


UPDATE:PREPARE TO “BUG OUT” IN ONE AFTERNOON. LEARN SHTF. HOW TO BUG OUT. WHAT IS BUG OUT? HOW TO PREP!


Full Historic Background and Detailed Explanation – Scary Stuff

Most people in the United States know just one fault line by name: the San Andreas, which runs nearly the length of California and is perpetually rumored to be on the verge of unleashing “the big one.” That rumor is misleading, no matter what the San Andreas ever does. Every fault line has an upper limit to its potency, determined by its length and width, and by how far it can slip. For the San Andreas, one of the most extensively studied and best understood fault lines in the world, that upper limit is roughly an 8.2—a powerful earthquake, but, because the Richter scale is logarithmic, only six per cent as strong as the 2011 event in Japan.

Just north of the San Andreas, however, lies another fault line. Known as the Cascadia subduction zone, it runs for seven hundred miles off the coast of the Pacific Northwest, beginning near Cape Mendocino, California, continuing along Oregon and Washington, and terminating around Vancouver Island, Canada. The “Cascadia” part of its name comes from the Cascade Range, a chain of volcanic mountains that follow the same course a hundred or so miles inland. The “subduction zone” part refers to a region of the planet where one tectonic plate is sliding underneath (subducting) another. Tectonic plates are those slabs of mantle and crust that, in their epochs-long drift, rearrange the earth’s continents and oceans. Most of the time, their movement is slow, harmless, and all but undetectable. Occasionally, at the borders where they meet, it is not.

MEGATHRUST EQ Cascadia Subduction ZoneBE PREPARED for Destruction

Take your hands and hold them palms down, middle fingertips touching. Your right hand represents the North American tectonic plate, which bears on its back, among other things, our entire continent, from One World Trade Center to the Space Needle, in Seattle. Your left hand represents an oceanic plate called Juan de Fuca, ninety thousand square miles in size.

The place where they meet is the Cascadia subduction zone. Now slide your left hand under your right one. That is what the Juan de Fuca plate is doing: slipping steadily beneath North America. When you try it, your right hand will slide up your left arm, as if you were pushing up your sleeve. That is what North America is not doing. It is stuck, wedged tight against the surface of the other plate.

Without moving your hands, curl your right knuckles up, so that they point toward the ceiling. Under pressure from Juan de Fuca, the stuck edge of North America is bulging upward and compressing eastward, at the rate of, respectively, three to four millimeters and thirty to forty millimeters a year. It can do so for quite some time, because, as continent stuff goes, it is young, made of rock that is still relatively elastic. (Rocks, like us, get stiffer as they age.) But it cannot do so indefinitely.

There is a backstop—the craton, that ancient unbudgeable mass at the center of the continent—and, sooner or later, North America will rebound like a spring. If, on that occasion, only the southern part of the Cascadia subduction zone gives way—your first two fingers, say—the magnitude of the resulting quake will be somewhere between 8.0 and 8.6.Thats the big one. If the entire zone gives way at once, an event that seismologists call a full-margin rupture, the magnitude will be somewhere between 8.7 and 9.2. That’s the very big one.

WARNING : Scientists Predict 2018 Will be a Bad Year of Earthquakes. Here’s Why/warning-scientists-predict-2018-will-bad-year-earthquakes-heres/

Posted by NewsPrepper on Thursday, April 20, 2017

Flick your right fingers outward, forcefully, so that your hand flattens back down again. When the next very big earthquake hits, the northwest edge of the continent, from California to Canada and the continental shelf to the Cascades, will drop by as much as six feet and rebound thirty to a hundred feet to the west—losing, within minutes, all the elevation and compression it has gained over centuries.

Some of that shift will take place beneath the ocean, displacing a colossal quantity of seawater. (Watch what your fingertips do when you flatten your hand.) The water will surge upward into a huge hill, then promptly collapse.

One side will rush west, toward Japan. The other side will rush east, in a seven-hundred-mile liquid wall that will reach the Northwest coast, on average, fifteen minutes after the earthquake begins. By the time the shaking has ceased and the tsunami has receded, the region will be unrecognizable. Kenneth Murphy, who directs FEMA’s Region X, the division responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska, says,

 “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.”

In the Pacific Northwest, the area of impact will cover some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people. When the next full-margin rupture happens, that region will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America. Roughly three thousand people died in San Francisco’s 1906 earthquake. Almost two thousand died in Hurricane Katrina. Almost three hundred died in Hurricane Sandy.

FEMA projects that nearly thirteen thousand people will die in the Cascadia earthquake and tsunami. Another twenty-seven thousand will be injured, and the agency expects that it will need to provide shelter for a million displaced people, and food and water for another two and a half million. “This is one time that I’m hoping all the science is wrong, and it won’t happen for another thousand years,” Murphy says.

In fact, the science is robust, and one of the chief scientists behind it is Chris Goldfinger. Thanks to work done by him and his colleagues, we now know that the odds of the big Cascadia earthquake happening in the next fifty years are roughly one in three. The odds of the very big one are roughly one in ten. Even those numbers do not fully reflect the danger—or, more to the point, how unprepared the Pacific Northwest is to face it. The truly worrisome figures in this story are these: Thirty years ago, no one knew that the Cascadia subduction zone had ever produced a major earthquake. Forty-five years ago, no one even knew it existed.

In May of 1804, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, together with their Corps of Discovery, set off from St. Louis on America’s first official cross-country expedition. Eighteen months later, they reached the Pacific Ocean and made camp near the present-day town of Astoria, Oregon. The United States was, at the time, twenty-nine years old. Canada was not yet a country. The continent’s far expanses were so unknown to its white explorers that Thomas Jefferson, who commissioned the journey, thought that the men would come across woolly mammoths.

Native Americans had lived in the Northwest for millennia, but they had no written language, and the many things to which the arriving Europeans subjected them did not include seismological inquiries. The newcomers took the land they encountered at face value, and at face value it was a find: vast, cheap, temperate, fertile, and, to all appearances, remarkably benign.

A century and a half elapsed before anyone had any inkling that the Pacific Northwest was not a quiet place but a place in a long period of quiet. It took another fifty years to uncover and interpret the region’s seismic history. Geology, as even geologists will tell you, is not normally the sexiest of disciplines; it hunkers down with earthly stuff while the glory accrues to the human and the cosmic—to genetics, neuroscience, physics. But, sooner or later, every field has its field day, and the discovery of the Cascadia subduction zone stands as one of the greatest scientific detective stories of our time.

The first clue came from geography. Almost all of the world’s most powerful earthquakes occur in the Ring of Fire, the volcanically and seismically volatile swath of the Pacific that runs from New Zealand up through Indonesia and Japan, across the ocean to Alaska, and down the west coast of the Americas to Chile.

Japan, 2011, magnitude 9.0; Indonesia, 2004, magnitude 9.1; Alaska, 1964, magnitude 9.2; Chile, 1960, magnitude 9.5—not until the late nineteen-sixties, with the rise of the theory of plate tectonics, could geologists explain this pattern. The Ring of Fire, it turns out, is really a ring of subduction zones. 

Nearly all the earthquakes in the region are caused by continental plates getting stuck on oceanic plates—as North America is stuck on Juan de Fuca—and then getting abruptly unstuck. And nearly all the volcanoes are caused by the oceanic plates sliding deep beneath the continental ones, eventually reaching temperatures and pressures so extreme that they melt the rock above them.

The first sign that the Cascadia earthquake has begun will be a compressional wave, radiating outward from the fault line. Compressional waves are fast-moving, high-frequency waves, audible to dogs and certain other animals but experienced by humans only as a sudden jolt.They are not very harmful, but they are potentially very useful, since they travel fast enough to be detected by sensors thirty to ninety seconds ahead of other seismic waves.

That is enough time for earthquake early-warning systems, such as those in use throughout Japan, to automatically perform a variety of lifesaving functions: shutting down railways and power plants, opening elevators and firehouse doors, alerting hospitals to halt surgeries, and triggering alarms so that the general public can take cover. The Pacific Northwest has no early-warning system.

When the Cascadia earthquake begins, there will be, instead, a cacophony of barking dogs and a long, suspended, what-was-that moment before the surface waves arrive. Surface waves are slower, lower-frequency waves that move the ground both up and down and side to side: the shaking, starting in earnest.

Soon after that shaking begins, the electrical grid will fail, likely everywhere west of the Cascades and possibly well beyond. If it happens at night, the ensuing catastrophe will unfold in darkness. In theory, those who are at home when it hits should be safest; it is easy and relatively inexpensive to seismically safeguard a private dwelling. But, lulled into nonchalance by their seemingly benign environment, most people in the Pacific Northwest have not done so. That nonchalance will shatter instantly.

So will everything made of glass. Anything indoors and unsecured will lurch across the floor or come crashing down: bookshelves, lamps, computers, cannisters of flour in the pantry. Refrigerators will walk out of kitchens, unplugging themselves and toppling over. Water heaters will fall and smash interior gas lines. Houses that are not bolted to their foundations will slide off—or, rather, they will stay put, obeying inertia, while the foundations, together with the rest of the Northwest, jolt westward. Unmoored on the undulating ground, the homes will begin to collapse.

b

Across the region, other, larger structures will also start to fail. Until 1974, the state of Oregon had no seismic code, and few places in the Pacific Northwest had one appropriate to a magnitude-9.0 earthquake until 1994. The vast majority of buildings in the region were constructed before then. Ian Madin, who directs the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI), estimates that seventy-five per cent of all structures in the state are not designed to withstand a major Cascadia quake.

FEMA calculates that, across the region, something on the order of a million buildings—more than three thousand of them schools—will collapse or be compromised in the earthquake. So will half of all highway bridges, fifteen of the seventeen bridges spanning Portland’s two rivers, and two-thirds of railways and airports; also, one-third of all fire stations, half of all police stations, and two-thirds of all hospitals.

Among natural disasters, tsunamis may be the closest to being completely unsurvivable. The only likely way to outlive one is not to be there when it happens: to steer clear of the vulnerable area in the first place, or get yourself to high ground as fast as possible. For the seventy-one thousand people who live in Cascadia’s inundation zone, that will mean evacuating in the narrow window after one disaster ends and before another begins. They will be notified to do so only by the earthquake itself—“a vibrate-alert system,” Kevin Cupples, the city planner for the town of Seaside, Oregon, jokes—and they are urged to leave on foot, since the earthquake will render roads impassable.

Depending on location, they will have between ten and thirty minutes to get out. That time line does not allow for finding a flashlight, tending to an earthquake injury, hesitating amid the ruins of a home, searching for loved ones, or being a Good Samaritan. “When that tsunami is coming, you run,” Jay Wilson, the chair of the Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Commission (OSSPAC), says.

The time to save people from a tsunami is before it happens, but the region has not yet taken serious steps toward doing so. Hotels and businesses are not required to post evacuation routes or to provide employees with evacuation training. In Oregon, it has been illegal since 1995 to build hospitals, schools, firehouses, and police stations in the inundation zone, but those which are already in it can stay, and any other new construction is permissible: energy facilities, hotels, retirement homes. In those cases, builders are required only to consult withDOGAMIabout evacuation plans. “So you come in and sit down,” Ian Madin says. “And I say, ‘That’s a stupid idea.’ And you say, ‘Thanks. Now we’ve consulted.’ ”

These lax safety policies guarantee that many people inside the inundation zone will not get out. Twenty-two per cent of Oregon’s coastal population is sixty-five or older. Twenty-nine per cent of the state’s population is disabled, and that figure rises in many coastal counties. “We can’t save them,” Kevin Cupples says. “I’m not going to sugarcoat it and say, ‘Oh, yeah, we’ll go around and check on the elderly.’ No. We won’t.” Nor will anyone save the tourists. Washington State Park properties within the inundation zone see an average of seventeen thousand and twenty-nine guests a day. Madin estimates that up to a hundred and fifty thousand people visit Oregon’s beaches on summer weekends. “Most of them won’t have a clue as to how to evacuate,” he says. “And the beaches are the hardest place to evacuate from.”

a

Those who cannot get out of the inundation zone under their own power will quickly be overtaken by a greater one. A grown man is knocked over by ankle-deep water moving at 6.7 miles an hour. The tsunami will be moving more than twice that fast when it arrives. Its height will vary with the contours of the coast, from twenty feet to more than a hundred feet.

 It will not look like a Hokusai-style wave, rising up from the surface of the sea and breaking from above.It will look like the whole ocean, elevated, overtaking land. Nor will it be made only of water—not once it reaches the shore. It will be a five-story deluge of pickup trucks and doorframes and cinder blocks and fishing boats and utility poles and everything else that once constituted the coastal towns of the Pacific Northwest.

Wineglasses, antique vases, Humpty Dumpty, hip bones, hearts: what breaks quickly generally mends slowly, if at all. OSSPAC estimates that in the I-5 corridor it will take between one and three months after the earthquake to restore electricity, a month to a year to restore drinking water and sewer service, six months to a year to restore major highways, and eighteen months to restore health-care facilities. On the coast, those numbers go up. Whoever chooses or has no choice but to stay there will spend three to six months without electricity, one to three years without drinking water and sewage systems, and three or more years without hospitals. Those estimates do not apply to the tsunami-inundation zone, which will remain all but uninhabitable for years.

How much all this will cost is anyone’s guess; FEMA puts every number on its relief-and-recovery plan except a price. But whatever the ultimate figure—and even though U.S. taxpayers will cover seventy-five to a hundred per cent of the damage, as happens in declared disastersthe economy of the Pacific Northwest will collapse. 

Crippled by a lack of basic services, businesses will fail or move away. Many residents will flee as well. OSSPACpredicts a mass-displacement event and a long-term population downturn. Chris Goldfinger didn’t want to be there when it happened. But, by many metrics, it will be as bad or worse to be there afterward.

There you have it.  This is serious stuff.  What took place today in the Cascadia Subduction Zone must be paid attention to.

 Your life may literally depend on it.


We also know that the U.S. government and large corporations are so concerned about the potential for a major New Madrid earthquake that they have held major exercises that simulate one. Scientists tell us that it is just a matter of time until another superquake hits the region, and personally I am one of the millions of Americans that believe that we will eventually see a New Madrid earthquake that will divide the United States in half. That is one of the reasons why I included a New Madrid earthquake in my novel.

But others are skeptical. They point out that we have not seen a truly devastating earthquake in that region for more than 200 years.

So why be concerned about one now?

The real question that you have to ask yourself is: would you be prepared?

The second most important question is: are you prepared right now to survive such a catastrophe?

Let’s take a look at this video and find out!

IMPORTANT TO KNOW: Yellowstone Volcano Earthquake Swarm Inside Upper Magma Chamber! Yellowstone Earthquake Swarm, ‘Ring of Fire’ Quake-Cluster Prompts Warning

IMPORTANT TO KNOW: Yellowstone Volcano Earthquake Swarm Inside Upper Magma Chamber! Yellowstone Earthquake Swarm, ‘Ring of Fire’ Quake-Cluster Prompts Warning

  • Is the Yellowstone super volcano close to erupting? Scientists detect more than 200 earthquakes in just 10 DAYS after warning that magma below the surface is showing signs of strain.
  • Latest swarm began Feb 8, about 8mi northeast of West Yellowstone, Montana.
    As of February 18, the scientists say they’ve detected more than 200 quakes.
    Still, experts say the activity is ‘relatively weak,’ and alert level remains normal.

A new swarm of earthquakes has cropped up at the Yellowstone super volcano, with more than 200 small temblors detected in the last 10 days alone.

According to experts with the US Geological Survey, the latest swarm began on February 8 in a region roughly eight miles northeast of West Yellowstone, Montana – and, it’s increased dramatically in the days since.

But for now, scientists say there’s no reason to worry.

The earthquakes, too, serve as a reminder of an under-appreciated hazard at Yellowstone—that of strong earthquakes, which are the most likely event to cause damage in the region on the timescales of human lives. As recently as 1975 there was a M6.5 event in the area of Norris Geyser Basin.

While the earthquakes are likely caused by a combination of processes beneath the surface, the current activity is said to be ‘relatively weak,’ and the alert level at the super volcano remains at ‘normal.’

According to the USGS, the new swarm is occurring in about the same location as the Maple Creek swarm last summer, which brought roughly 2,400 earthquakes in a four-month span.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations picked up the first quakes just over a week ago, counting more than 200 as of February 18.

But, the experts say there are likely many more that have gone undetected.

‘The present swarm started on February 8, with a few events occurring per day,’ according to USGS.

‘On February 15, seismicity rates and magnitudes increased markedly. As of the night of February 18, the largest earthquake in the swarm is M2.9, and none of the events have been felt. All are occurring about 8 km (5 mi) beneath the surface.’

Yellowstone is home to several faults and has a long history of seismic activity.

As natural processes occur beneath the surface and ‘stress effects’ from past events continue to maintain their hold, the area remains a ‘hotbed of seismicity and swarm activity,’ according to USGS.

On right, a map of Yellowstone earthquakes from 1973 – 2017 is shown, with red circles illustrating all of the quakes. Blue shows quakes that were part of swarms. The current swarm is shown on the left (red circles), compared to the location of last summer’s swarm (gray)

‘Swarms reflect changes in stress along small faults beneath the surface, and generally are caused by two processes: large-scale tectonic forces, and pressure changes beneath the surface due to accumulation and/or withdrawal of fluids (magma, water, and/or gas),’ USGS explains.

According to experts with the US Geological Survey, the latest swarm began on February 8 in a region roughly eight miles northeast of West Yellowstone, Montana – and, it’s increased dramatically in the days since
‘The area of the current swarm is subject to both processes.’

The current activity, however, is likely no cause for worry.

As the experts explain, earthquake swarms are a common phenomenon at Yellowstone, and account for more than 50 percent of seismic activity at the park.

RECOMMENDED:A SUPRISE FROM THE SUPER VOLCANO UNDER YELLOWSTONE-YELLOWSTONE SUPERVOLCANO MAY BLOW FASTER THAN THOUGHT

EVACUATION PLAN FOR WYOMING – THE WHOLE STATE!

In 2007, the state of Wyoming adopted a plan to evacuate the ENTIRE state.  Everyone!  That plan, available HERE 

Based upon the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan, very few hazards exist statewide which would result in the evacuation of the entire state. The catastrophic explosion of Yellowstone National Park would necessitate the evacuation not only of Wyoming but of the Western United States . . .

Unfortunately, when it comes to predicting the timing of an eruption, geologists are left with a large gap in prediction. There are telltale signs of an eruption that is about to occur, say in the next few months to years. This includes increased earthquake activity, bulging of the ground surface, increased emission of volcanic gasses, etc.

On the other hand, geologists can use the average span of time between recent eruptions as a very crude gauge of eruption timing. Hence, geologists can likely detect an imminent eruption, but beyond that, for Yellowstone, the next best guess is every 600,000 to 800,000 years. Uncomfortably so, we lie within that range right now, however, it is just as likely that the next eruption occurs in 100,000 years.

Given that the next eruption could be 100,000 years from now or 50 years from now, or next week, the ability of humans to react and mitigate the next eruption varies greatly. If the eruption were to occur 50 years from now, we can do little but wait and prepare ourselves. Perhaps widespread evacuation orders from western and central United States to the East coast. However, logistically that would prove to be incredibly difficult and does not help property damage.

I am endeavoring to reach experts at the US Geological Survey to make official comment about this.  When I do, I will update this story with their remarks.

In the meantime, beware. What is taking place at Yellowstone is not normal.

Emergency Food Supplies

COULD AN ERUPTION AT THE YELLOWSTONE SUPERVOLCANO BE PREVENTED?

Even besides the potential devastating risks, the plan to cool Yellowstone with drilling is not simple.

Doing so would be an excruciatingly slow process that one happens at the rate of one meter a year, meaning it would take tens of thousands of years to cool it completely.

And still, there wouldn’t be a guarantee it would be successful for at least hundreds or possibly thousands of years.

And in the past, they have not been linked to volcanic activity.

‘While it may seem worrisome, the current seismicity is relatively weak and represents an opportunity to learn more about Yellowstone,’ USGS explains.

‘It is during periods of change when scientists can develop, test, and refine their models of how the Yellowstone volcanic system works.’

But, the experts also note: ‘The earthquakes, too, serve as a reminder of an underappreciated hazard at Yellowstone – that of strong earthquakes, which are the most likely event to cause damage in the region on the timescales of human lives.’

FACTS :ALL PROPHECIES SAY ABOUT OUR FUTURE.THESE EVENTS WILL SHOCK AMERICA!

FACTS :ALL PROPHECIES SAY ABOUT OUR FUTURE.THESE EVENTS WILL SHOCK AMERICA!

 

Whether or not you believe in the power of the human mind to connect with The Source and withdraw information about the future, things are lining up in such a way that many prophecies start to seem like perfect descriptions for the world today.

In order to get the clearest possible picture of what could happen, we gathered all of the reported predictions from people, civilizations and mystics we could find.

NOSTRADAMUS:

Nostradamus had a prophecy about WWIII and he said it will be the most violent of all. Heprophesied that major nuclear confrontation will occur in the middle east.

And that Europe will be in flames. Radioactive fallout will have adverse effects on people, animals, and weather.

However, he also did predict that Vladimir, a Russian ruler with help of Extraterrestrial Beings will stop the WWIII and the evil agenda that started it. (Vladimir Putin?)

EDGAR CAYCE:

Edgar Cayce, a famous American psychic (also known as “The Sleeping Prophet”), used to put himself in a sleep like state where he gained visions about the future events. Here are some of his predictions:

“There will be a potential Third World War In Libya, and in Egypt, in Ankara, and in Syria; through the straits around those areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf.” He indicated the sins of famous world countries:

America – has forgotten “in God we trust”;

England – conceit;

France – lust;

China – isolationism;

India – internalization of knowledge;

Italy – dissensions;

He said “Russia will become beacons of hope for the world.”

“Through Russia comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism, no! But freedom, freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man.

The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world.”

“Because the War in Space race is heating up, I felt you should be aware of several factors as you and I schedule our Skype talk.

Remember, our nonviolent ETI from the contiguous universe are helping us bring zero point energy to Earth.

They will not tolerate any forms of military violence on Earth or in space.”

Could this Extra Terrestrial Intelligence that does not tolerate ‘any forms of military violence on Earth’ be the same as the beings that Nostradamus said would assist humanity? Will these beings be in alliance with Russia in a way?

FAMOUS PEOPLE WHO REPORTED ENCOUNTERS WITH EXTRATERRESTRIALS:

Nikola Tesla reported that he spoke with Extraterrestrial Intelligence which came from the Planet Venus ♥.

He claimed that these beings were guiding humanity towards more sustainable sources of energy, technology and way of life.

However, he is not the only famous person to report such encounter.

Russell Crowe, John Lennon, Buzz Aldrin, David Bowie, Muhammad Ali, even Victoria Beckham reported alien encounters of some kind.

Even though it’s hard for many people to take these reports seriously, they are not something to be overlooked too, considering the leaked mails.

BEINSA DOUNO:

Peter Konstantinov Deunov, known as Beinsa Douno, born in 1886 and who later passed away in 1944, was one of the wisest and most spiritual people that lived on Earth. He left a prophecy that he had obtained through a trance based state:

“During the passage of time, the consciousness of man traversed a very long period of obscurity. This phase which the Hindus call ‘Kali Yuga’, is on the verge of ending. We find ourselves today at the frontier between two epochs: that of Kali Yuga and that of the New Era that we are entering.

A gradual improvement is already occurring in the thoughts, sentiments and acts of humans, but everybody will soon be subjugated to divine Fire, that will purify and prepare them in regards to the New Era. Thus man will raise himself to a superior degree of consciousness, indispensable to his entrance to the New Life. That is what one understands by ‘Ascension’.

Some decades will pass before this Fire will come, that will transform the world by bringing it a new moral. This immense wave comes from cosmic space and will inundate the entire earth. All those that attempt to oppose it will be carried off and transferred elsewhere.

Although the inhabitants of this planet do not all find themselves at the same degree of evolution, the new wave will be felt by each one of us. And this transformation will not only touch the Earth, but the ensemble of the entire Cosmos.

The best and only thing that man can do now is to turn towards God and improve himself consciously, to elevate his vibratory level, so as to find himself in harmony with the powerful wave that will soon submerge him.”

There is a really insightful presentation by Dr. Bruce Lipton who explains that there are tiny receivers of light photons on our skin.

They are activated when we raise our frequency and are in a state of Love. These receivers can be stimulated by high frequency photons, much higher than the visible specter. This triggers a process in our bodies to produce certain chemicals, proteins and amino acids that some scientists say may be the key of eternal youth and immortality.

Could this be the wave which ‘comes from cosmic space’ and the reason why Peter Deunov advised people to raise their frequency? Is our Solar System passing through a wave of cosmic energy? Will this cosmic energy raise our consciousness?

Ancient Egyptians knew about the power of cosmic energy and the influence it has on consciousness. Some scientists suggest that the pyramids were built to channel this energy into the individuals who meditated inside giving them health, energy and special abilities.

These are all wild theories which somehow fit together and connect. The most interesting thing is that knowledge of similar phenomena was described through many cultures and civilizations that had no link between them.

ZECHARIA SITCHIN:

Zecharia Sitchin was brilliant scholar, researcher, historian, and author. He discovered ancient writings of another mysterious planet that orbits around our Solar System. However, the planet’s orbit is a elliptical and a lot bigger than the rest of the planets.

This planet orbits the inner Solar System every 3,600 years and it’s the one that destroyed another planet between Mars and Jupiter (which would explain the mysterious asteroid belt between them). This collision supposedly formed the planet Earth.

Zecharia says that this planet he calls Nibiru would pass through the Solar System in the year 2085 and cause a little disturbance.

nibiru

He has many wild theories he got from ancient Sumerian texts. According to Sitchin, this planet was the home of a technologically advanced human-like extraterrestrial race called the Anunnaki in Sumerian myth, who Sitchin states are called the Nephilim in Genesis.

He claims they evolved after Nibiru entered the solar system and first arrived on Earth probably 450,000 years ago. According to Sitchin, the ancient writings say that the human race was being genetically engineered by Extraterrestrials.

However, all these theories can very well be a figment of his imagination.

It’s interesting that the orbiting of this mysterious planet has a direct connection with the Mayan calendar that speaks of an old era ending and a new era of awakening starting.

THE HINDUS:

The Hindus spoke of large cycles, similar like the Mayans and Sumerians, that determine a state of one civilization. Some time now a new era should start which they called “The Golden Age” and a time when people would live happily and in peace.

For the Hindus what we call Apocalypse is a natural ending of the fourth era and the start of the fifth. Here is what they say about this:

“Dharma becomes very weak in the Kali Age. People commit sin in mind, speech, and actions.

Quarrels, plague, fatal diseases, famines, drought, and calamities appear. Testimonies and proofs have no certainty. There is no criterion left when the Kali Age settles down.

People become poorer in vigor and luster.

They are wicked, full of anger, sinful, false, and avaricious.

Bad ambitions, bad education, bad dealings, and bad earnings excite fear.

The whole batch becomes greedy and untruthful.

Many sudras will become kings, and many heretics will be seen.

There will arise various sects; sannyasins wearing clothes colored red.

Many profess to have supreme knowledge because, thereby, they will easily earn their livelihood.

In the Kali Age, there will be many false religionists.

India will become desolate by repeated calamities, short lives, and various diseases.

Everyone will be miserable owing to the dominance of vice and Tamoguna.

People will freely commit abortion.

Earth will be valued only for her mineral treasures.

Money alone will confer nobility.

Power will be the sole definition of virtue.

Pleasure will be the only reason for marriage.

Lust will be the only reason for womanhood.

Falsehood will win out in disputes.

Being dry of water will be the only definition of land…”

This is described as the ending of the fourth era.

THE HOPI TRIBE:

Hindus are not the only people who speak of this transition between eras. The ancient American Hopi tribe shares a really similar prophecy that says:

“My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother, [from the stars] as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. we were told of their coming long ago. But still we await Pahana.

He will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.

The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.

This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.

This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes, the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.

This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes, the coming of the white men’s cattle.

end-of-days

This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron. (Roads?)

This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider’s web. (Wires?)

This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.”

This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it. (Oil?)

This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom.

And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease…”

It’s really, REALLY strange how all of these prophecies which speak about the fourth era ending, describe our current situation in the world.

ANCIENT NATIVE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAD ANOTHER PROPHECY THAT SAYS:

“At this time, the light-skinned race will be given a choice between two roads.

One road is the road of greed and technology without wisdom or respect for life. This road represents a rush to destruction.

The other road is spirituality, a slower path that includes respect for all living things.

If we choose the spiritual path, we can light yet another fire, an Eight Fire, and begin an extended period of Peace and healthy growth.

The great spiritual Teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all.

We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner.

Men and women will be equals in the way Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go.

Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out.

The whole Human race will be called The People and there will be no more war, sickness or hunger forever.”

What they refer to as “Technology” is a translation of a word that means something really similar they used to describe usage of natural resources for personal causes.

H. G. WELLS:

H. G. Wells was torn between 2 visions too, one of salvation and one of doom.

H. G. Wells forecasted the twentieth century so vividly and accurately he became known as “The Man Who Invented Tomorrow”.

He saw super highways, overcrowded cities, military use of airplanes and the bombing of cities. In 1911 he forecast the atomic bomb and other weapons of mass destruction, that terrified him. His final vision in 1933 was of an apocalyptic world war.

He predicted that if humanity did not change its ways, it would destroy itself.

Spiritually, he prophesied a new consciousness emerging, spearheaded by a visionary elite who would take control of the weapons of war and create a global state, pacifying and leading humanity to a new world.

By the second decade of the twenty-first century he envisioned a peaceful world liberated from old hatreds and adorned with scientific marvels. It seems that all of these prophecies suggest a destructive transition into better times.

WHAT ALL OF THESE PROPHECIES HAVE IN COMMON:

All of these visions, prophecies and descriptions speak about Extraterrestrial beings who want peace on this planet.

They speak about a possible world conflict before we transition into global union and better times.

Most importantly they all give humanity a choice. They speak of 2 ways in which one is more destructive than the other.

There have been a lot of prophecies which didn’t happen at all. However, there have been reported many which perfectly matched certain events.

BABA VANGA:

Baba Vanga was a famous blind prophet who predicted the death of princess Diana, Stalin’s end, Barrack Obama’s presidency, the 9/11 attack and much more.

In 1989, Vanga predicted the 9/11 disaster. She said “Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing.”

This is what she says about the future of humanity:

2016 – According to Vanga, in 2016 Europe will cease to exist. The continent will lose almost all of its population and the developing countries will transform to exploiters.

2023 – The orbit of the Earth will change, albeit the change will not be as significant.

2025 – The population of Europe will reach almost zero

2028 – Mankind will fly to Venus, in hope to find new sources of energy. Five years from then, the level of world oceans and water will duplicate.

2043 – As exploiters will start moving into Europe, the continent will be ruled by the Muslims.

2066 – Muslims will try to invade Rome and will succeed in that. In an effort to free the ancient city and bring back Christianity to it, the US will use a climate weapon for the first time.

2076 – According to Baba Vanga, by 2076, communism will return to Europe and the rest of the world.

2111 – Humans will turn into live robots, cyborgs

2123 – There will be a war between the small countries of the world, and the big forces will intervene to end the war

2164 – Scientists will find a way to turn animals into humans

2170 – A terrible drought will took place, halting the population of the Earth

2183 – A human colony on Mars will become a nuclear force, and will seek independence from the Earth

2195 – People living under water will become independent from the land people. They will no longer need supplies and energy from the land.

3797 – There will be no more life on Earth, and mankind will continue living on other solar systems and planets in the Galaxy.

3803 – New planets will be low in population, as few people will manage to get to them. The communication between people will be at an awful level, and there will be human mutation as a result.

3871 – A new prophet will rise, and he will start preaching moral values and religion to people

EX-CIA CHIEF WOOLSEY : “NORTH KOREA COULD KILL 90 PERCENT OF AMERICANS”

EX-CIA CHIEF WOOLSEY : “NORTH KOREA COULD KILL 90 PERCENT OF AMERICANS”

 

North Korea says they will EMP USA. How is that possible when North Korea has NO EMP’s nor has satellites capable of guiding one. Is our government setting us up for something? Are we looking at another 911 event?

North Korea EMP attack on the United States would knock out the critical, life-sustaining infrastructures that depend on the national grid, including telecommunications, banking and finance, automated control systems, petroleum and natural gas, transportation, food and water delivery and emergency services. Cascading failures of critical infrastructure could also lead to secondary disasters, including cataclysmic failure of nuclear plants. The economic and human costs would be devastating.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, a paranoid psychopath, displayed a nuclear missile warhead he threatens to launch against the United States and its allies.

The public is being misled by the White House, some so-called “experts” and mainstream media casting doubt on whether the Great Leader’s threat is real. They claim North Korea has not demonstrated sufficient “miniaturization” of a nuclear weapon to be delivered by a missile.

However, defense and intelligence community officials warn North Korea probably already has nuclear armed missiles. The Defense Department’s 2016 report “Military and Security Developments Involving the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea” warns that, in addition to medium-range missiles, they have six KN-08 mobile nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that can strike the U.S. mainland.

Recently, the Pentagon warned North Korea rolled out a new longer-range ICBM, the KN-14, that can probably deliver a nuclear warhead to Chicago.

So the notion that we don’t have to worry about North Korean nuclear missiles because they cannot “miniaturize” warheads is a myth. Adm. William Gortney, Commander of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is correct to presume that is the case and to prepare to defend against that threat, as he said last October.

Technologically, “miniaturizing” a nuclear warhead is much easier than developing an atomic bomb or a multi-stage missile for orbiting satellites — as North Korea has already done. Ever since the USSR orbited Sputnik in 1957, analysts have rightly credited any nation that has tested nuclear weapons and orbited satellites with the capability to make a nuclear missile warhead.

Warning Signs!Most Americans do not know how to use warning signs or even recognize them if they occur, other than those that were once given by sirens sounding, which were stopped at the end of the cold war.Yes!You Can Survive A Nuclear Blast –Video Below

 

North Korea is preparing to hit North America with electromagnetic pulse weapons (EMP):

North Korea prepping EMP attack on U.S.

An Ex- Central Intelligence Agency director made some extraordinary claims on North Korea.
That the regime is a far bigger threat to the U.S. than ever, and it might be time for Washington to consider pre-emptive strikes.
Kim Hyun-bin highlights James Woolsey’s words of caution.

The United States should be prepared to launch preemptive strikes on Pyongyang, including the use of nuclear weapons if necessary.
That’s what former CIA chief James Woolsey said in an op-ed piece in the Hill newspaper, accusing the U.S. media of underestimating the threats posed by the regime.
Woolsey, who was director of the CIA during the Clinton administration,… warned that if the North uses a warhead-triggered electromagnetic pulse,… it could kill 90 percent of Americans.
Woolsey and co-author Peter Pry, who is with the Congressional Electromagnetic Pulse Commission,… also listed the possible ways North Korea could attack the U.S.,… speculating Pyongyang could use a bomb-laden freighter or even conduct a suicide mission.

Responding to the assertions,… South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff on Thursday repeated its assertion about North Korea’s capability to conduct a nuclear test… and added something new. “North Korea is capable of conducting a nuclear test upon an order from its leader. Seoul and Washington are monitoring and evaluating the situation. There is also a possibility the regime could conduct a new type of nuclear test.”

Adding to the heightened nuclear threat,… North Korea-monitoring website 38 North… said up to 100 people have been spotted at the North’s nuclear test site. “And in equally worrying news,… many experts believe North Korea could conduct its sixth nuclear test around the birthday of the late founder Kim Il-sung on April 15th.

Kim Jong Uns North Korea Warned Donald Trumps America (Nuclear War)

WASHINGTON – North Korea is preparing to launch a satellite capable of detonating a nuclear weapon more than 100 miles over the United States, creating an electromagnetic pulse that could destroy America’s electrical grid system, a former director of the U.S. Strategic Defense Initiative said…

Former Ambassador Henry Cooper – who was President Ronald Reagan’s chief representative in the “Star Wars” initiative negotiations with the Soviet Union and SDI director under President George H.W. Bush – said North Korea is preparing its Sohae satellite complex for a launch on a southern trajectory, which is said to be a test.

Cooper told G2 Bulletin the United States lacks sufficient anti-ballistic missile defenses in the southern part of the U.S., especially if the satellite turns out to be a nuclear device that could orbit above the U.S. and explode at a high altitude, affecting the lives of all Americans.He said it would be difficult to distinguish a test from an actual attack, and the best way to counter such a threat to the U.S. homeland is to knock out the missile at the time it begins its trajectory over a southern polar route. But he acknowledged such an action would be politically unpalatable.

However, if the North Korean satellite turned out to be a nuclear device and is detonated over 100 miles above the U.S, it could destroy all life-sustaining critical infrastructures that rely on the national grid, potentially leading to the death of most Americans within the following year.

All grid-dependent systems could suffer, including food- and water-supply chains, fuel-supply systems, communications, banking and finance. 

Yes, North Korea is an EMP threat to the USA. I have warned about this for years.  Now, more and coming forward about this.

Canada is also at risk:

Canada and the United States are currently vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack that has the potential to destabilize our power grid, water systems, food supply chain and more…

CIA analyst Dr. Peter Pry’s attempts to educate policy-makers and the military on the need to protect our electrical grid. If an enemy detonated a nuclear missile above the skies of North America, it could take out our grid for months. Countries like North Korea and various terrorist groups have already shown they can successfully launch EMP missiles.

“This is a bigger threat than the classic nuclear war we talk about,” Pry explained during a recent visit to Toronto. “It will kill a lot more people. One bomb will basically end your civilization.

“We’re not just talking about destroying electronics — at the end of the day we’re talking about killing millions of people. But it’s the old fashioned way — through starvation and disease and societal collapse.” …

“When it comes to issues of national and homeland security, this is why we have government,” says Pry. “Even the strictest constitutionalist should be able to support a bill that is basically for the purpose of providing for the national and homeland security of the American people so that a failed state like North Korea can’t kill 90% of our population with one bomb.”

The challenge is the issue doesn’t appear to be a priority in Canada. Representatives from CSIS, the RCMP and Public Safety Canada all confirm that attacks to what’s called “critical infrastructure” are concerns of theirs, but it appears no recent reports specifically mention EMP. It’s unclear to what degree government experts are studying the issue.


How prepared Canada and the USA actually are for this remains an open question, but the risk is great.

An EMP attack could well be one of the ‘troubles’ that could affect the USA, Canada, and/or various others during the ‘beginning of sorrows’ that Jesus spoke of (Mark 13:8).

North Korean politicians have often been playing a dangerous game with their country and their people, and hopefully they will realize that an EMP attack is not in their interests.

While North Korea is not prophesied to take over the USA (Europe is per Daniel 11:39, etc.), as I wrote in the past, it certainly is possible that it may decided to actually launch one or more missiles at the USA in the future (or take other “terroristic actions; cf. Leviticus 26:26).

North Korea, sadly, is certainly capable of terrorism. It has threatened the USA and its White House in the past.

If North Korea does take certain steps to sufficiently aggravate the USA into a full military conflict, it needs to realize that it likely will no longer exist as it is. At some point in time, however, I believe that both Koreas will be reunited based upon certain verses in Revelation, yet whether this will be because of a war involving the USA or something else, that is not clear.

Of course, if North Korea did so, it would not do well once the USA retaliated. So, North Korea is not likely to publicly and direct nuke the USA. But with its despotic leader, almost anything is possible.

The Koreans are Asians and occupy the “land of the sunrise” (Revelation 16:2) and I believe that they are part of the kings of the east that the Book of Revelation discusses having a role in the end time (Revelation 9:16). For years I have written that I expect that they will reunify. The unification of North and South Korea is consistent with biblical prophecy. But North Korea may take unusual actions before then, and it may regret doing so.

And while some may find it hard to believe, North Korea is truly believed to have the ability to knock out a lot of the USA’s power supply with its electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapon capability. Even Voice of America (a news source operated by the US government) publicly warned about it in the past.


RECOMMENDED:THE BEST NATURAL PAINKILLER SIMILAR TO MORPHINE THAT GROWS IN YOUR BACKYARD


Disasters, especially if there is an ElectroMagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack or a severe solar flare storm, could be part of a so-called“perfect storm” of events that could set the USA for destruction.

Many sorrows that the U.S.A. will face, like severe weather problems, diseases and earthquakes, will happen irrespective of who is in the White House (Amos 4:7-10; Luke 21:11). 

The USA, despite its military strength, is vulnerable to being hurt by EMP weapons as well as nuclear weapons, chemical weapons, dirty bombs, terrorism, and biological weapons. Everyone knows that EMPs can basically work as advertised, this may give the North Koreans more reason to look further into using them if they feel pressed.

This may not bode well for the USA or Canada. Perhaps I should add that Iran and the Europeans also have this capacity.  The USA and Canada may well be hit by EMP weaponry, and there are many places that have the potential to hit them that way.

WAR WITH NORTH KOREA IS COMING.It is HIGHLY LIKELY that WE WILL BE ATTACKED HERE IN THE USA-Here’s How YOU Can Prepare

If war re-commences with North Korea, the US will very likely suffer major attacks HERE – inside our own land. These attacks may come from submarines off our coast, cyber-attacks to utilities, acts of sabotage by Sleeper Cells. Our electric, water and communications systems are all vulnerable. Are you prepared? Here’s how and why you need to take action for yourself and your family.

North Korea has no chance over a long-term of defeating the US. But over the short term, they can do an awful lot of very serious damage to us; damage that would affect YOU and YOUR FAMILYIt’s time to prepare. RIGHT NOW!

In any conflict with North Korea, they will seek to use “asymmetrical” warfare. It won’t be tit-for-tat it will be unusual attacks.

For instance, over the past decade or so, North Korea has successfully launched two orbiting satellites. Both orbit the United States mainland and Alaska every 100 minutes or so. 

Both satellites are in orbit 450 kilometers above the planet, which converts to about 300 or so miles.

The strange thing about BOTH these satellites is that they do not transmit anything. Nothing at all. No radio or TV signals. No data streams. No radar.

So what are they up there for?

Some feel that each satellite is a low yield nuclear bomb with a radio receiver, waiting for the signal to detonate over the United States.

What if this is true; what could such a device actually accomplish?

Well, first of all, if it is a nuke, we would not feel any blast and would not suffer any radiation. It’s too far up to affect us in those ways.

But it’s altitude of about 300 miles is the PERFECT altitude to send an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) into the Stratosphere. The massive and sudden release of the blast would react with the earth’s atmosphere and cause a sudden “surge” (pulse) of MAGNETISM.

Human bodies would not be affected at all by magnetic fields, we live with them all the days of our lives.

Electronics, however, are another story.


First, a little High School Physics:

Do you know how electricity is generated? “The free flow of electrons.”

And how do power companies make the electrons flow freely? Magnetic fields!

In a power plant or even in your automobile alternator, there are coils of wire around a center stem. On that center stem is a . . . . magnet.

As the magnet turns inside (by a steam source in a power plant or a drive belt on your engine), the magnetic fields coming off the magnet cause electrons in the nearby wire to move. THAT is electricity.

Now think about your house, your car, all the electronic gizmos you have. They ALL have wires, right?

Well, if a nuclear bomb explodes up in space, and reacts with our atmosphere as it is well-known to do, the magnetic pulse that comes down to the ground will cause the electrons inside wires to flow. Put simply, the pulse from the nuke will cause anything metallic, to generate electric! A lot of electric. The graphic below from the US Army show the VOLTS along the right column:

In fact, depending upon how close or how far from the detonation you are, the voltage would be from 5,000 to 50,000 VOLTS per meter of metal wire !!!!!!

Every wire in your house, all the plugs on your appliances, all the extension cords you have,  all the circuits in all your electronic gizmos would ALL suffer those types of instant voltage surges – and be fried.  Dead.

 Cars may not work because their electronic ignitions MAY get fried too.

 But that’s the least of our worries . . .

Our Power Grid

Now, think about the United States Power Grid.  All the wires you see on all the telephone poles everywhere.  ALL OF THEM would surge with voltage as well!

On many of those telephone poles are “transformers” which step-down the voltage from the power plant, to a level we can use in our homes.  ALL of those transformers would be wrecked, with many, many of them flat-out exploding.

Worse, in the power grid, there are much larger transformers which feed things like sub-stations.  They would be wrecked and blow up too. 

Lastly, at the power plants themselves, there are utterly HUGE transformers.  We’ll call them “mega” transformers.  Here’s what they look like:

WEIGHT: 884,000 pounds 

WEIGHT:   1 Million, Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds!

WEIGHT: 1,040,500 pounds

They would be destroyed too.

And it is this last item, the MEGA transformers, are a very major problem. 

You see, these transformers are so big, so heavy, and so expensive, that nobody keeps any “in reserve.”  Only two or three companies in the entire WORLD even manufacture them, and when they do, each transformer is a custom job; built to order.

If the world needed a whole slew of such transformers at once, and all the companies worked 24/7 to get them out . . . . they can only produce 130 per YEAR.

Did you get that?  130 per YEAR.

Why is this important?  Because in the US power grid alone, there are about 2,500 of those MEGA transformers.

Do the math. 

If all 2500 mega transformers in the USA were all blown out by an EMP, it would take 20 YEARS to get them replaced.

It is estimated that if such a thing were to take place, that ninety percent of the population in the USA would STARVE TO DEATH in the first year.

WHY?

Think about it.  No electric.  That means no refrigeration.  Food goes bad fast.

No fuel.  Gas stations need electric to pump and more importantly, refineries need electric to refine.  Even if we have the oil, we can’t refine it. No electric means the fuel supply runs out, fast. 

No fuel means no trucks.  No trucks mean no deliveries; of ANYTHING, ANYWHERE.  No gasoline to stations, no food to supermarkets – nothing.

No farming.  No food brought into city supermarkets, no mail, no Amazon packages . . . nothing.

See how vastly and horribly we might be affected?  We’d be thrust back into the electrical equivalent of the stone age!

Many, many, Americans would perish.

So, what to do?

Prepare. 

Get yourself a way to generate electric power.  There are several different ways, we’ll discuss three later in this article: Generators, Solar, and battery Inverters.  We’ll show solutions a bit lower in this article.

If the Satellites with Nukes Sounds waaaaay too far-fetched . . .

Let’s talk about computer hacking. 

Over the weekend of April 8 and 9, 2017, someone Hacked-into the Emergency Warning Siren System in and around Dallas, TX.   At around 11 PM Dallas Time on Saturday night, all the sirens started triggering.  153 sirens in total were activated.

People in Dallas, Carrolton, Richardson and other local areas were all frightened because while there was no severe weather (those sirens warn of tornadoes), the US has just struck Syria with missiles and folks were wondering if we were being attacked back!


Try as they might, the authorities could not get their computers to shut off the sirens.  So what did they have to do?  They sent the Fire Department out to all 153 sirens to shut them off MANUALLY.  It took HOURS.

Now, imagine if hackers get into our electrical systems and do the reverse: Shut everything OFF? Hack-in and send a signal to every switch and every circuit to turn off!

Imagine too that, like in Dallas, the utility companies simply cannot get back into their systems to make the power come back on.  They would literally have to go to every sub-station and manually throw the switches, then go to electric pole after electric pole to turn circuits back on.  It would take WEEKS.

Hackers sound too far-fetched to you?   OK, how about simple sabotage?

Folks already know they can look up on the Internet the NINE key power locations in the USA.  If these nine locations are physically attacked, or blown up, power would go down in vast regions of this country for as long as it takes to fix.   Weeks?  Months? 

Who knows.

The point is that if — and when — the Korean War resumes, we must be prepared to be attacked in ways that will make our lives VERY hard.   We must understand that in the event of such attacks, we will have to fend for ourselves.  You cannot sit back and expect  “the government will take care of me” because it can’t.

ELECTRICITY SOLUTIONS 

Generators

MOTORIZED GENERATORS CAN NEVER BE USED INDOORS; NOT EVEN FOR FIVE MINUTES.  THE CARBON MONOXIDE FROM THE MOTOR WILL KILL YOU.

Motorized generators can only be used OUTSIDE your home.

Generators are rated in “watts.”   They usually provide two different numbers: “Start-up” (very short duration) and “Running” which is the real number.

When it comes to FUEL CONSUMPTION, manufacturers get a little shifty.  They tell you that you’ll get “x” numbers of hours on a full tank, but there’s an Asterisk *** and when you scroll down to the fine print, they tell you that “fuel efficiency is based on 50% load.”   So if the generator is rated at 2,000 watts, the fuel rating is based upon only running half that (50% of load) or 1,000 watts!

Here’s how to determine what size generator you need:

Take paper and pen and go to every electric device in your house and read the “watts” on the product label.   Write each item down and its wattage.

When you’re done withe everything in the house that you NEED in an emergency (refrigerator, lights, phone) add-up the watts then look at generators which offer  (at 50% load) to provide that total wattage.

For instance, perhaps you have a refrigerator that uses 1200 watts (when running) and five rooms with one CFL light in each of 5 rooms @ 9 watts each, plus a TV at 300 watts.  You add the 1200 + a total of 45 watts for the lights, + 300 watts for the TV which comes to 1545 Watts.   You should then go buy a Generator with a MAX capacity of 3,000 watts or higher to meet these basic needs, because half that rating (the “RUnning” watts) is what you’ll be using for regular “Running” watts.

From AMAZON, here are some generators from which to choose.  If none of these meet your needs (or budget) click the “Go” Button at the bottom of the Generator box and you’ll get a whole SLEW of other choices!

Do not be one of the people that freezes and is overcome by fear—you need to move smartly if you want to survive.How to make a Generator at home.Video below.

Solar

Solar is expensive.  But the payoff is that you don’t need fuel.  As with the Generators above, find a system that will meet your wattage demands.

From AMAZON, here are some basic emergency solar generation systems from which to choose.  If none of these meets your needs (or budget) click the “Go” Button at the bottom of the solar box for more choices!

Inverters

Inverters run off car batteries.  They convert the 12 volts DC into 120 volts AC.   This system does not last long at all and if you kill the battery, you’ll have to get a jump start for your car to recharge it.  Click the “Go” Button at the bottom for more choices.

FOOD,  WATER, CASH!

WATER STORAGE

The overwhelming majority of people in the USA derive their water from Municipal, County or Corporate Water Company Utilities.   Only in rural America do most families have their own well-water.

For those of us who rely on a Water company utility, we need to ask ourselves: What do we do if the water company gets poisoned?  Computer-hacked?  Blown-up?

What do we do for water?????

It is imperative that you have fresh water stored up for an emergency.

Whether you wash-out and fill up used plastic one-gallon milk containers, or used two liter soda bottlesSTORE WATER NOW ! ! !

Every human requires ½ gallon of water per day to live.   If a human goes THREE DAYS without water, they die.

Much of the water we ingest is actually contained in our food.  But in an attack situation, food may not be readily available.  YOU MUST STORE-UP ENOUGH WATER TO GET YOU AND YOUR FAMILY THROUGH AT LEAST A MONTH.

Do the math:  ½ gallon per day x 30 days x number of persons in your home.

From AMAZON, here are some convenient water storage methods for ANY HOME, OFFICE OR APARTMENT:

Water Filters

If you cannot store water, then you’re going to need to get some from rivers, streams, ponds or even rain.  That means you have to FILTER and DISINFECT the water before consuming it.

FOOD

You need to have enough food to tie your family over if there are system disruptions.

You want CANNED, DRIED, BOXED and JARRED foods as they stay edible for a long time.

Canned foods like: Meats, tunafish, fruits, beans, Soups

BOXED/PACKAGED FOODS like:  Pasta, Rice, Beans

JARRED foods like: Pasta sauce, Jam, Jelly

FLOUR, SUGAR, SALT

Don’t  go nuts storing up a slew of food, just keep enough on hand to tie you over in an emergency for a month or so.

PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE

Some of you take certain medicines in order to live.  Things like Thyroxin to replace a removed Thyroid.  Make certain you have enough supply on-hand to keep you alive for at least a month!

CASH

If we are attacked, it may not be possible to use Credit/Debit Cards or Automatic Teller Machines.  HAVE CASH MONEY;   Not to pay bills . . . to survive!

If the shit hit the fan and systems go down around the country, NOBODY is going to be able to accept your credit or debit card.  ATM’s may not work – or will run out of cash if they do.   Where will that leave YOU?  

Have cash hidden away in the house or somewhere safe.  NOT A BANK SAFE DEPOSIT BOX because they may not open without electric or computers.  HAVE CASH IN YOUR POSSESSION.

WRAP-UP

These are the most rudimentary basics.  In another article later, we will talk about COMMUNICATIONS for when phones, FAX, Internet and Cellular are “down.”

    hi, i’m a south korean.

    You have to prepare.
    As shown above, the EMP shot in the north is only the tip of the iceberg.

    Now, what country do you think the Northern army in the Bible is?
    The Bible tells us that the northern army will strike your country and end in an hour.
    (Some see the northern army as Russia, and the last Batalian Hitler speaks is Korean – if you investigate the Korean people you will faint. The history you have learned is completely fraudulent. It has been over 200 years since the Anglo – American Jewish rule ruled humanity. The dialect used by Koreans is a prototype of Sanskrit. Modern civilization started and ended with the Korean people. (Maya, Inca, etc. – the ancestors of the Korean people, not suddenly disappeared, but the English and Jewish people killed them and they occupied the land.) Now, if the Illumina collapses, it seems that humanity is growing one level higher.

    Do not you wonder why your government does not hit North Korea even if this situation is against you?

    Your press or South Korean media have told me that North Korea ‘s missiles are now reachable, or that there are several nuclear bombs. And as the time goes on, you will not be attacked even if it becomes disadvantageous to your country. Why? Why?

    I said that North Korea ‘s EMP is the tip of the iceberg.

    I’m going to talk about North Korea’s space defense forces.
    Until a few years ago, there were only the United States and North Korea with space forces all over the world.
    A few years ago, with the help of North Korea, Russia created a space force.
    As you know, your country has never been to the moon.
    The space group in your country is like a moon and only a watermelon.

    Hitler ‘s secret project team was in East Germany, but some of them went to North Korea as East Germany collapsed.
    I do not know how many people went to North Korea, whether they went to North Korea shortly after Hitler’s loss to World War II, went to the Soviet Union, and then went to North Korea. He just said he went to North Korea.
    They may contribute a lot to the creation of the North’s space force.

    A few years ago, Iran had made its flying saucer available on the Internet.
    This is what I saw with my eyes.
    (100% of all military power in Iran is made by North Korea, a strategic dimension to fight against Israel.)
    (You may not be able to find this if the agents have been removed.)
    Therefore, Iran will also operate unofficially the space force.
    If you do not believe you can not do it, believe it or not, it is your problem.
    This North Korean space force is really scary. The laser is basic.
    Do you see why your satellite failed a few years ago when you could just fire it?
    Look for the video.
    (This would also allow you to find a fast passing light around the satellite if the agents did not delete it.
    But you have to concentrate very much. Otherwise, it may not be found.)

    Now, do you see why Trump told us that he was going to create a space force some time ago?
    I will now talk about North Korea’s emp.
    This is also very advanced so that you can make electronic equipment as you like at any place or at any place.

    You may be unbelievable, but we just talked about two of the reasons why the US government can not fight North Korea.
    North Korea wants peacefully ending the war.
    But from Clinton to Trump, your government promised, hated, promised, and broken.
    Trump also broke his promise to declare the war in July, the UN anniversary.

    How long should North Korea wait for the US troops to leave South Korea?
    It is 70 years since South and North Korea were divided.
    North Korea is about to end the war.
    America has no time.
    Trump should choose.
    Otherwise, North Korea will move. I really have no time.
    (I think the US will not make a choice at the end.
    The withdrawal of US troops from the Korean Peninsula leads directly to the collapse of US supremacy.)

    So you have to prepare.
    The US government will never start a war on the Korean peninsula.
    It may be better to work in the more moderate Middle East.

    As you say on this site, you should prepare quickly.

      I have heard that North Korea launched an emp satellite over the US in 2009, 2012 and 2016. I heard that this satellite is turning 13 miles around the US a day. I’ll tell you one more thing. There have been North Koreans in Cuba for a long time and they are operating nuclear and missiles. Should I tell you more? North Korea has the largest number of submarines in the world and has already released underwater ballistic missiles. Of course your government told you that they failed. I want to give you advice. Do not trust your government. The US government tells you that North Korea missiles do not reach all over the United States. As I said above, your government has no meaning. If North Korea could not attack the US, it would attack North Korea a long time ago. Sooner or later, South Korea and North Korea will be unified (I believe in a short period of time that they will be unified within a year or two). Trump wants you to make the right choice. Maybe there will be a war in the Middle East.

Deadly Marburg Virus – 88% FATALITY RATE: MARBURG VIRUS OUTBREAK IN UGANDA & KENYA; Just a Plane Ride From . . . . Everywhere

Deadly Marburg Virus – 88% FATALITY RATE: MARBURG VIRUS OUTBREAK IN UGANDA & KENYA; Just a Plane Ride From . . . . Everywhere

An outbreak of the deadly Marburg Virus is now confirmed in Uganda.  The virus, similar to Ebola, is far worse with an 88% fatality rate.  It causes those infected to bleed through every orrifice, then through their own skin as they slide helplessly into death.

The outbreak of a deadly virus similar to Ebola – the fatal fever that struck west Africa – has been confirmed in the continent.Marburg, which kills up to 88% of people it strikes, has killed two people in Uganda and is now feared to have spread to another three.

A team of experts have been scrambled to the Kween district to contain the virus amid fears it will become a serious epidemic.

The virus is from the same family as Ebola, and causes bleeding, fever, vomiting and diarrhoea.
It can be spread through bites from either fruit bats or monkeys, and can be passed from human-to-human through semen and blood.However, it can also be passed through coming into contact with contaminated clothing and bedsheets, the World Health Organization warns.

There is currently no treatment of the virus.

According to local reports the two people who died of Marburg recently were brother and sister.

But fears have soared after it emerged another three are suspected of contracting the virus, one of whom has disappeared after refusing to go to hospital.

And more worryingly, it is feared several hundred people have come into contact with the five victims.

Dr Diana Atwine, Uganda’s health ministry permanent secretary, said: “At moment we don’t know if there are other people apart from the dead who have contracted the disease.

“Health experts are still investigating in addition to sensitising the population about the dangers of Marburg and we call for public vigilance.”

The outbreak comes after Daily Star Online revealed a new Black Death outbreak is spreading fast across Africa after taking root in Madagascar.

And among the places affected are tourist destinations such as South Africa, Kenya, the Seychelles and Mauritius.

Health officials fear the plague, which has killed 124 people in this latest outbreak, is now running a “high” risk of spreading.

CIA & NSA CAN TARGET ANYONE, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME ON EARTH WITH MIND CONTROL TECHNOLOGY USING EITHER SATELLITES OR A LAND BASED FIXED PHASED ARRAY OF SCALAR WAVE TOWERS IN USA

CIA & NSA CAN TARGET ANYONE, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME ON EARTH WITH MIND CONTROL TECHNOLOGY USING EITHER SATELLITES OR A LAND BASED FIXED PHASED ARRAY OF SCALAR WAVE TOWERS IN USA

The Dark Side Truth About CIA , NSA , Darpa Mind Control Assassin Programs

CIA and NSA Operatives Targeting Brain of Monarch Program Victims of Mind Control Victims Day and Night, but Primarily in their Sleep When They Are Most Vulnerable.

Each human being has a unique brain wave pattern that is one of a kind, just like you have a unique set of fingerprints. That brain wave pattern is known as your ‘Specific Residence Frequency’ which no one else in the world has like yours. It is truly unique a one of a kind brain unique brain wave signal.

The CIA and NSA DARPA handlers are able to lock on to that brain wave signal after they have moved close to you and en-trained your brain to their remote neural monitoring system and download your specific brainwave frequency brain wave pattern into their computer which the CIA and NSA handlers, and there are usually four to six handlers in number because they operate in shifts, have for life, which the CIA NSA handlers can then mimic, to induce all kinds of thought, emotions, cognitive abilities, physical sensations, etc.

This is because the human body is a ‘VIBRATORY ORGANISM and an ‘ELECTROMAGNETIC ORGANISM’ and as such each organ of the body ‘VIBRATES’ AT A different frequency of ELECTROMAGNETIC ENERGY!

By varying the FREQUENCY and INTENSITY of each beam of electromagnetic energy, the CIA and NSA operatives can manipulate each region and organ of the human anatomy.

Then the NSA CIA handlers use that specific brain wave frequency of the targeted individual to target you and manipulate your mind with mind control technology. This is a simplified way to explain how REMOTE NEURAL MONITORING MIND CONTROL TECHNOLOGY works in real time.

They also secretly ‘chip’ the targeted individual or his property with tracking implants they can monitor by satellite any where in the world. They use those tracking implants to hone in on your physical location to wherever you are and once you are in a relatively stationary position the targeted individual becomes susceptible to the directed energy.

The CIA NSA handlers can then hetero dynamically lock on to your unique one of a kind brain wave pattern frequency and manipulate your mind for the purposes of mind control, and to inflict pain and trauma on the targeted individuals body that pothers who in the vicinity of the stream of directed energy don’t feel or notice.

The mind of the brain entrained targeted individual picks up the frequency of directed energy but the others around the targeted individual don’t pick it up because that frequency of directed energy is specifically tuned to the unique brain wave a pattern of the targeted individual.

EXCLUSIVE-We love the apocalypse as long as nobody acknowledges the truth: It’s not a mythical event. We live on top of one.

As such, only the targeted individual with that ‘Specific Residence Frequency’ of brain waves absorbs the energy or feels it effects such as severe pain to the brain and central nervous system. Because the brain controls the central nervous system, only that person’s central nervous system, with that specific brain wave pattern frequency, will have their central nervous system manipulated. The others around you will not feel or notice the effects because their brain wave patterns don’t operate along the same frequency.

This is how the CIA NSA operatives are able to target the Monarch Victim in a crowd of people, as that crowd of people don’t absorb the energy or feel its effects. Only the victim absorbs the energy or feels it effects.

Once they have that specific frequency they can target you from great distances with mind control technology.

However, because ‘VERIFICATION’ is necessary they need to be close to you or to have hidden cameras up or boots on the ground to monitor you and make sure the technology is working.

Without VERIFICATION thee is no way the NSA CIA handlers can determine the mind control technology is working or not, meaning they cant tell if they need to vary the routine or not, such as altering the intensity or frequency of the electromagnetic energy. They have to either have cameras, many of which are hidden, or boots on the ground to inform them you did this or said that after the, say, IMPULSE INJECTION was triggered.

1

So, then, they continuously trigger the thoughts and desires in your mind using electromagnetic streams of energy that you need to go to the refrigerator and drink some chocolate milk, and you keep having the impulse and desire to do this, but if they cannot see you actually do it. meaning go to the refrigerator and drink the chocolate milk, then there is no way to confirm the technology is working properly.

For example, you might have the strong desire to drink the chocolate milk but instead choose orange juice, meaning the mind control technology failed on that occasion and they need to make adjustments. So they constantly keep you surrounded by perp’s at all times to ensure the technology is working and that you don’t defeat their remote neural monitoring system.CIA NSA handlers achieve this by engaging in a SMEAR CAMPAIGN OF CHARACTER ASSASSINATION AND SLANDER BASED ON LIES AND HALF TRUTHS to turn people against you so that they think they are watching you for other reasons when in fancy they are just puppets of the CIA NSA operatives who have fooled them into doing thework for them.

For the CIA and NSA handlers not to use VERIFICATION techniques would still not prohibit them from targeting you with the technology, but it would be the equivalent of targeting a moon five galaxies away with a particle beam weapon, meaning they could fire away but would have no idea whether they hit their target or not because they would have no way to confirm it.

 

CIA NSA OPERATIVES USING SCALAR WAVE WEAPONS SYSTEM

Remember, they are using Scalar Waves as well, which are multi-directional, out of phase, speed of light, longitudinal, electromagnetic waves of energy.

Once fired, scalar waves travel and exist on both sides of the world north-south-east-west at the same time because they are being fired continuously each second by land based fixed phased arrays of towers, and often by satellite as well. These towers are like the HAARP tower in Alaska, but actually the US Government has two more that we know of, one of which is located at Los Alomos laboratories and the other of which is located near the coast of Maine, in the American northeast. The one near Maine is much smaller than the others and is disguised to look like a building.

They are all three used for these purposes, and fire scalar waves continuously each second, so that scalar waves exist continuously on both sides of the world each second of every day, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Non stop.

The CIA and NSA handlers simply harvest and redirect that scalar wave enrgy that already exists in the atmosphere and redirect it at the targeted individual using the targets specific residence brain wave frequency as the targeting device and sequence.

0

In other words, you could literally be standing in Antarctica, and the CIA could target you with this technology from land based fixed phased array towers that exist in Alaska.

Again, Scalar Waves are speed of light out of phase LONGITUDINAL waves of electromagnetic energy and exist both places at same time, so they can use a terrestrial grid -fired from a land base fixed phased array – or an extra-terrestrial – fired from satellite – to target you no matter where you are in the world.

Only those targeted individuals who have that ‘specific residence frequency’ will absorb the energy or feel its effects. Others, it will pass right through them and they will not know it. This is how they are able to target you in crowded spaces.

CIA NSA handlers also engage in disruption tactics to destroy the credibility of the targeted individual. They have a daily PROTOCOL and daily CONTINGENCY PLAN in place to daily destroy the credibility of the targeted individual on a DAILY BASIS. If the targeted individual does THIS then CIA and NSA handlers will do THAT and if targeted individual does THAT then CIA and NSA handlers will do THIS. They have a daily PROTOCOL in place and wage a continuous DAILY campaign to destroy the credibility of the targeted individual every single DAY!.

For example I checked over an hour later to see if an earlier post made at the HOTEL CASA CONSULADO on June 24 2015 1700 hrs was actually posted to facebook meaning to see if they was any disruption or not even though I know for a fact I posted it which and it was not posted to facebook which are tactics designed to force the targeted individual to complain because if he doesn’t complain and document the complaint the tactics wil never stop, meaning the targeted individual is caught in a CATCH 22!

If he does complain and document the complaint the CIA and NSA handlers will make his complaints appear frivolous and if he doesn’t complain and document the complaint thetactics will never stop. CATCH 22! Meanwhile, the internet activity is continuously manipulated in a way so that if people go back and look at he internet activity that was disrupted it appears that nothing bad occurred.

THEY HAVE DONE THIS REPEATEDLY TO ME. AS SOON AS I GO TO SLEEP THEY START TARGETING MY BRAIN WITH STREAMS OF DIRECTED ENERGY KNOWN AS BETA PROGRAMMING THROUGH MICROWAVES SCALAR WAVES TO SLOWLY DESTROY MY BRAIN SO THAT I APPEAR MENTALLY ILL RATHER THAN MENTALLY INJURED WHILE AT THE SAME TIME TURNING ME INTO THEIR MONARCH MIND CONTROL SLAVE JUNE 25 2013 hrs Hamacas Hostal Granada Nicaragua.

For example, I am now forced and compelled to repeat my words and thoughts continuously, which I do not wish to do but have no choice because they have programmed my brain to do it on a continual basis every day. By programming the mind of the targeted individual to think in words rather than images the CIA NSA handlers are able to understand and read via remote neural monitoring the targeted individual thoughts more clearly.

SEVERE PAIN TO HEART AND CHEST RIGHT NOW AS I TYPE THIS ARTICLE AND POST IT ON FACEBOOK. THE CIA NSA HANDLERS INFLICT PAIN AND TRAUMA ON THE TARGETED INDIVIDUALS BODY UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES SO THE TARGETED INDIVIDUAL WILL MAKE MISTAKES AND AS PUNISHMENT FOR BEING A DISOBEDIENT MONARCH VICTIM.

TARGETED INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE TARGETED WITH THIS TECHNOLOGY MUST FIGHT IT AT ALL COSTS BECAUSE IF THEY SUBMIT THEY WILL LOSE THEIR ETERNAL SOUL.

THIS IS WHY THE CIA NSA DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE SCIENTIST, TURNED WHISTLE BLOWER, WHO HELPED INVENT AND DEVELOP THE TECHNOLOGY, CALLED IT, IN HIS BOOK, ‘PROJECT SOUL CATCHER’! 

BREAKING NEWS: MAJOR EARTHQUAKE OFF U.S. WEST COAST – 6.3 MAGNITUDE QUAKE ROCKS US WEST COAST AMID BIG ONE FEARS

BREAKING NEWS: MAJOR EARTHQUAKE OFF U.S. WEST COAST – 6.3 MAGNITUDE QUAKE ROCKS US WEST COAST AMID BIG ONE FEARS

A MASSIVE 6.3 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of California as the Ring of Fire continues to show signs of increased activity.

A mega earthquake has struck off the coast of California, according to official reports.

The tremor was about 200 kilometres off the coast of the California-Oregon State border.

Experts have warned of no damage to buildings, and there has been no tsunami warning issued for now.

The earthquake hit along the Ring of Fire – where more than 60 tremors have hit in the last few days.

The Ring of Fire is the largest and most active fault line in the world, stretching from New Zealand, all around the east coast of Asia, over to Canada and the USA and all the way down to the southern tip of South America and causes more than 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes.

Experts know that the Ring of Fire has to potential to unleash some catastrophic quakes – and a spate in the last 24 hours has some concerned.

The strongest of which was a magnitude 8.2 which struck in the Pacific Ocean close to Fiji and Tonga but there have been many others, including a 4.5 magnitude earthquake in the Indonesian island of Lombok.

Seismologists believe that the unsettling of the Ring of Fire could lead to a catastrophic earthquake somewhere around the globe, and California has been touted as a possible destination.

Even SWAT Teams are Helpless Against This…

Experts have been warning for some time that California is overdue a large earthquake, and shaking around the Ring of Fire could be a precursor to this.

Thomas Jordan, head of the Southern California Earthquake Center, told the Los Angeles Times last year, that any time there is seismic activity on a fault zone, “the probability of having a large earthquake goes up.”

And Richard Aster, Professor of Geophysics at Colorado State University wrote recently for the Conversation that the southwestern State is overdue an earthquake: “The earthquake situation in California is actually more dire than people who aren’t seismologists like myself may realise.

“Although many Californians can recount experiencing an earthquake, most have never personally experienced a strong one.

The Ring of Fire (Image: GETTY)

“For major events, with magnitudes of seven or greater, California is actually in an earthquake drought.”

The last time there was a magnitude seven quake or higher in California was in 1906 which struck San Francisco and ultimately killed around 3,000 people.

But Prof Aster says the damage this time could be much worse.

He said: “California’s population has grown more than 20-fold since the 1906 earthquake and currently is close to 40 million.”

The professor adds that despite some of the “most advanced [earthquake preparedness] in the world”, there could be serious devastation.

Prof Aster said: “Nonetheless, California’s infrastructure, response planning and general preparedness will doubtlessly be tested when the inevitable and long-delayed ‘big ones’ occur along the San Andreas Fault system.

“Ultimate damage and casualty levels are hard to project, and hinge on the severity of associated hazards such as landslides and fires.”

He added: “As California prepares for large earthquakes after a hiatus of more than a century, the clock is ticking.”

BREAKING-M4.5 Earthquake Jolts San Francisco, CA-The BIG ONE Is Inevitable. But When?

BREAKING-M4.5 Earthquake Jolts San Francisco, CA-The BIG ONE Is Inevitable. But When?

A magnitude 4.5 earthquake struck the San Francisco area early this Thursday morning 3 km Southeast  of Berkeley. 

The quake took place at 02:39:37.6   local time in California which is 5:39 AM on the east coast. 

The quake was triggered by the “Hayward Fault” at a very shallow depth of only 13 km and was widely felt.  

Hayward Fault

The Hayward Fault is a mostly right-lateral, strike-slip fault with approximately 5 mm/yr (1/5 inch/year) of creep. The 2003 Working Group for California Earthquake Probability, in agreement with previous working groups going back to 1990, assigned a slip rate on the Hayward Fault to be about 9 mm/yr (1/3 inch/year). This implies that approximately 4 mm/yr of motion is taken up in a stick-slip fashion, leading to the generation of earthquakes.

The Hayward Fault runs from San Pablo Bay in the north to Fremont in the south, passing through the cities of Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward, and Fremont. South of Fremont the fault branches into a complex set of surface faults that connect the Hayward Fault to the central part of the Calaveras Fault. The Hayward and Calaveras Faults may have a simpler connection at depths more than 5 km (3 miles), joining in the subsurface just south of the Calaveras Reservoir (site of the October 30, 2007 M5.4 Alum Rock earthquake). The Hayward Fault may be segmented into a northern and southern segment in the vicinity of Berkeley or Oakland.

Even SWAT Teams are Helpless Against This…

The most recent major earthquake on the Hayward Fault occurred at 7:53 AM on 21 October 1868 with an estimated magnitude of ??. With an epicenter in the heart of the Bay Area, then having the largest population on the west coast with a total of 260,000 residents, this earthquake was one of the most destructive in California history, and remains the nation’s 12th most lethal earthquake. Property loss was extensive and 30 people were killed. Five deaths were reported in San Francisco, out of a population of 150,000, where the total property loss was estimated to be $350,000 (in 1868 dollars). This earthquake was known as the “great San Francisco earthquake” until the magnitude 7.9 shock on the San Andreas Fault on 18 April 1906.

Geologic studies at Tule Pond (Fremont) on the southern segment of the Hayward Fault have shown that the average interval between the past 5 earthquakes has been 140 ± 50 years. The average interval of the past 11 earthquakes on this segment of the fault is 170 ± 80 years.

The 2003 Working Group for California Earthquake Probability assigned a 27% probability that the Hayward-Rodgers Creek Fault system would produce a magnitude 6.7 or larger earthquake in the next 30 years.

The BIG ONE Is Inevitable. But When?

The ‘Big One’ is a hypothetical earthquake of magnitude ~8 or greater that is expected to happen along the SAF. Such a quake will produce devastation to human civilization within about 50-100 miles of the SAF quake zone, especially in urban areas like Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

No one knows when the Big One (“BO”) will happen because scientists cannot yet predict earthquakes with any precision. The 1906 San Francisco quake (mag ~7.8) and the 1857 Ft. Tejon quake (mag ~7.9) took place in northern and central California, respectively, and both were ‘Big Ones’. Some scientists think the next BO will be in southern California. The SAF passes through LA’s three main transportation, power, and utility corridors in southern California: I-10 in San Gorgonio (Banning) Pass, I-15 in Cajon Pass and I-5 in Tejon Pass.

The San Francisco peninsula’s water supply is contained in San Andreas Lake (!) and the Crystal Springs reservoirs, both squarely on the SAF. Earthquakes with magnitude 8.5 or greater can probably only happen in California north of Cape Mendocino where the Cascadia megathrust subduction zone lies, but they are extremely rare, occurring on average once every few hundred years.

Smaller but still devastating earthquakes can happen on other faults as well: San Jacinto fault in southern California and the Hayward fault in the San Francisco Bay area. Recent experience with the Northridge quake shows that smaller and sometimes unknown faults can be a problem; until the earthquake, we did not know about the Northridge fault because it is a blind thrust fault.

Even those who survive the immediate earthquake will find themselves in danger. The first thing they will need is water, but most water mains will probably have been broken. Utilities such as electricity, natural gas, gasoline, telephones, etc. will be interrupted for days, weeks or longer. Medical facilities will be jammed and unable to handle the casualties. Most people will not be able to get to the hospital because roads will be damaged.

Banks will be closed, as will any organization that relies on the internet. Little if any food or medicine will reach the area, and radio/TV communications will be spotty at best.

The best way to prepare for the BO is to plan on camping for two weeks; think sleeping bags, tents, and living outdoors. This means not only basic necessities (food, water, clothing, shelter) but the knowledge of how to survive. For more information visit the News-Prepper!

So why be concerned about one now?

The real question that you have to ask yourself is: would you be prepared?

The second most important question is: are you prepared right now to survive such a catastrophe?

BREAKING : Homeland Security Plans Inert Chemical Tests Near Kansas Border-Drone Captures Chemical Plume Over Atchison

BREAKING : Homeland Security Plans Inert Chemical Tests Near Kansas Border-Drone Captures Chemical Plume Over Atchison

Congressman Ron Estes, R-Kansas, announced Thursday night that he has “numerous questions” about chemical and biological tests the Department of Homeland Security wants to conduct just across the state line in Oklahoma.

Homeland Security officials plan to execute a “low level outdoor release” of inert chemical and biological simulant materials at the old Chilocco Indian School campus north of Newkirk, Okla., after the first of the year and again next summer.

The campus is near the Kansas/Oklahoma border, about 6 miles south of Arkansas City and about 55 miles southeast of Wichita. Wind typically blows out of the south, which could carry airborne particles into Kansas.

Part of the test is to determine how much protection people would receive from being inside a house or an apartment if biological agents are used in a terrorist attack, according to a statement on the Homeland Security web site.

The tests are set for next year in January and February, when humidity is low, and again in June and July, when humidity is high.

The environmental assessment of the proposed chemical tests states low concentrations of particles will be released at two buildings on the now-abandoned Chilocco campus. The assessment says that the test will have no adverse impact on human health or the environment.

Estes, who represents the Fourth District in the U.S. House of Representatives, serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security. In a statement released late Thursday, he said he is “monitoring the situation closely.”

“I have numerous questions regarding this proposed test,” Estes said. “While it’s important for our federal agencies to test their abilities in response to threats, we need to be one hundred percent certain this test is safe for the residents of south central Kansas.”

The city of Arkansas City posted a statement on its Facebook page Thursday saying it was reviewing media reports of the chemical testing.

“This is the first time the city has been made aware of any testing to occur at Chilocco,” the statement said. “Inert means chemically inactive, which means by definition there should be no risk to the citizens. However, we are looking into the situation to gather more information for our citizens and their safety.”

For the particle test, the federal government plans to release titanium dioxide, which it describes as a “white odorless powder that is chemically insoluble in water, nonreactive, nonflammable, and nonhazardous.” It also plans to release urea powder mixed with a CL Fluorescent Brightener.

For the biological portion of the test, it plans to release genetic barcoded spores of a biological insecticide known as native Btk, which is sold under the trade name of Dipel. Dipel is not considered a hazard by the Environmental Protection Agency when handled appropriately, according to the assessment.

People have 30 days to submit comments on the environmental assessment to Homeland Security about the proposed tests by email at [email protected] or by mail to the Department of Homeland Security:

S&T CBD Mail Stop 0201

245 Murray Ln SW

Washington, DC 20528-0201

The deadline for comments is Dec. 8. Chilocco was one of five boarding schools authorized by Congress in 1882 for Native American children not on reservations. Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence is another. The 8,000-acre Chilocco Indian Agriculture School opened in 1884 and remained in operation until 1980.

The school is owned by the Council of Confederated Chilocco Tribes which include the Kaw Nation, the Otoe-Missouria Tribe, the Pawnee Nation, the Ponca Nation, and the Tonkawa Tribe.

In 1994, the Tonkawa Tribe briefly considered storing high-level nuclear waste on some of the land.

A chemical leak at an Atchison, Kan., plant Oct. 21, 2016, was created by an “inadvertent” mixture of sodium hypocholorite and sulfuric acid, city manager Trey Cocking said Friday afternoon. The leak was reported shortly after 8 a.m. Oct. 21, created a dangerous fog and led to a number of evacuations.

‘ANY DAY NOW’ -FEMA PREPS 9.0 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE ALONG THE CASCADIA SUBDUCTION ZONE – 13,000 DEATHS IN WAKE OF PACIFIC MEGAQUAKE

‘ANY DAY NOW’ -FEMA PREPS 9.0 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE ALONG THE CASCADIA SUBDUCTION ZONE – 13,000 DEATHS IN WAKE OF PACIFIC MEGAQUAKE

Juan de Fuca tectonic plate rupture. What will happen WHEN – not If – When a massive earthquake and tsunami strike the West Coast of the United States? Experts say it could easily match the catastrophic 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami in scale and might.

A 700-mile stretch of coast, from northern California to southern British Columbia lies just off the extremely volatile Cascadia Subduction Zone.

Not only have portable disaster morgues been shipped to four states in what appears to be preparation for a Large Earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic zone.

Now FEMA is also preparing for an Imminent large 8.0 to 9.2 Magnitude Earthquake in the already locked and overdue Cascadia Subduction Zone.

Even SWAT Teams are Helpless Against This… 

A new report predicts that a mega-earthquake could kill an estimated 13,000 people and destroy a sizable portion of the Pacific Northwest.

Even more disturbing? It’s overdue.

FEMA calculations show these types of earthquakes happen at regular intervals in this specific part of the world, roughly every 240 years.

The last one was more than 300 years ago, in 1700, when a quake there sent a 600-foot wave of water all the way to Japan.

Kaku said Hollywood has “brainwashed” people into thinking that California is where the next massive earthquake will hit.

He added that before the mega-quake actually hits, there is a compression wave that is detected by animals.

“Animals start to act very strange. We’ve seen that happen before earthquakes,” Kaku said. “And then, a minute, two minutes later, boom!”

The massive quake, with a magnitude of up to 9.2, would last about four minutes, according to seismologists, with a wall of water following about 15 minutes later.

RECOMMENDED : What You Do In The Next 5 Seconds Will Determine If You And Your Family Survive Or Die…?

Kaku said he’s concerned that many of the 70,000 residents in the potential “inundation zone” have very little knowledge about this risk.

“It barely rates on the radar screen,” he said.

Shep asked Kaku whether he would live in the Pacific Northwest if he had children.

“I’d think twice,” he said, advising residents to educate their children on emergency preparedness and what to do in case of an earthquake.

FEMA warns California! Get off the coast! M9 or greater is Imminent! Earth crustal shift, Cascadia Subduction Zone about to slip!

Even the New Madrid has tripled in earthquake swarms! Prepare Now!!

Test will simulate a 9.0 magnitude quake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, followed by a tsunami. 

A massive earthquake and tsunami is said to occur every 400-600 years, and is now overdue in the region .

Scientists also detailed plans on how to combat threat at Seismological Society of America meeting in April.

They said new technologies such as camera-bearing drones could send video messages of incoming waves.

The threat of a massive earthquake and tsunami have been looming over the Pacific Northwest for decades.

Now, experts are taking it seriously. This summer the Federal Emergency Management Administration (Fema) is conducting a large-scale drill to see if it’s ready for worst.

The test will simulate a 9.0 magnitude quake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, followed by a tsunami that could create waves more than 50ft-high.

MEGATHRUST EQ Cascadia Subduction Zone-BE PREPARED for Destruction

THE THREAT OF ‘THE BIG ONE’ 

Experts say an event of this kind occurs roughly every 400-600 years, and the area is now overdue for a similar quake that could leave thousands dead or displaced.

Worst-case scenarios show that more than 1,000 bridges in Oregon and Washington state could either collapse or be so damaged that they are unusable.

The main coastal highway, US Route 101, will suffer heavy damage from the shaking and from the tsunami.

Traffic on Interstate 5 — one of the most important thoroughfares in the nation — will likely have to be rerouted because of large cracks in the pavement.

Seattle, Portland and other urban areas could suffer considerable damage, such as the collapse of structures built before codes were updated to take into account a mega-quake.

Tipping Point: Is Your Home Ready For An Earthquake ?How To Improve The Safety Of Your Home.

Researchers say such an event of this kind occurs roughly every 400-600 years, and the area is overdue a similar quake that could leave thousands dead or displaced.

The last time the region faced a ‘Big One’ was in 1906 when San Andres unleashed an earthquake that killed roughly 3,000 people.

This summer’s drill, dubbed Cascadia Rising, will test to see how local and state emergency responders, Fema, and a number of military groups work together.

The simulation will run from June, and will use past events to help plan the future response.

In April, researchers speaking at the Seismological Society of America’s (SSA) Annual Meeting, in Reno, Nevada said plans for managing tsunami risk on the West Coast are still evolving.

Meanwhile, geologists are searching for evidence of past tsunamis in the region to help them refine their estimates of tsunami risk.

There is, for instance, the evidence for frequent and large earthquakes and tsunamis occurring within the past 2,000 years in parts of the Eastern Aleutian Islands.

There are signs that these earthquakes have spanned the boundary between the locked and creeping portions of the region’s megathrust fault.

Earthquakes in the area could cause significant tsunami effects across the Pacific, especially in Hawaii and California.

‘Despite the fact that we have learned a significant amount about the earthquake sources for tsunamis, there are gaps in our understanding of past tsunamis, especially prehistoric tsunamis,’ says Rick Wilson, a senior engineering geologist with the California Geological Survey.

‘If we can demonstrate when and where tsunamis occurred in the past, that information will give us a better understanding of the return periods in these areas, and that can go into the probabilistic analyses that help us understand our hazard and risk better.’

Wilson, who also serves as the science coordinator for the State of California Tsunami Preparedness and Hazard Mitigation Program, noted that more than 440,000 people have died worldwide since 1850 as a result of tsunamis.

A powerful earthquake thought to be as large as 9.2 magnitude ripped through the earth in 1700, along the 600 mile stretch of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, causing severe shaking and a massive tsunami. An animation from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center plotted the path of the tsunami as it traveled from the US to Japan.

WHAT WILL CAUSE KILLER QUAKE?

The Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ) ‘megathrust’ fault is a 1,000km-long line that stretches from Northern Vancouver Island to Cape Mendocino California.

It separates the Juan de Fuca, a 700-mile chunk in the Pacific Ocean, and North America plates.

For more than 300 years, the two plates have been pushing against one another.

Eventually, the Juan de Fuca will be pushed underneath the North America plate, causing the region to sink at least six feet.

The San Andreas Fault in California, has a quieter, far more dangerous cousin that could make itself known at any moment. Running from Northern California to British Columbia, the Cascadia subduction zone can deliver a quake that’s many times stronger than San Andreas

The deadly tsunamis caused by the 2004 Sumatran earthquake and the 2011 Tohoku earthquake brought increased public attention to tsunami science, warning and preparation.

At the SSA meeting, Wilson will discuss how California officials used state tsunami response playbooks to respond to a tsunami advisory issued after the September 2015 magnitude 8.3 Illapel earthquake in Chile.

The playbooks were created after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, ‘when there was very little consistency between communities [in California] in what they did,’ Wilson says.

‘Some evacuated their entire zone, some just evacuated their beaches.’

The new playbooks offer a variety of action plans depending on the size of the tsunami from a distant source, Wilson says.

The future of tsunami response and preparedness might come from new technologies such as camera-bearing drones.

These could  send video messages of incoming waves to convince coastal dwellers to evacuate, says Masa Hayashi, a retired IBM engineer presenting at the SSA meeting.

And there’s also the remote possibility that the trigger for a tsunami might not come from an earthquake, but from an asteroid strike on Earth.

RECOMMENDEDMAJOR EARTHQUAKE WARNING:US WEST COAST EARTHQUAKE WARNING AS CASCADIA SUBDUCTION ZONE SURGES

In an SSA talk, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researcher Souheil Ezzedine will share data from a study that models the effects of an asteroid-generated tsunami, on several coastline cities in the U.S., depending on the asteroid’s impact off the U.S. East Coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and into the Pacific Ocean near San Francisco.

Last month, scientists were finally able to trace the origins of the historic tsunami that struck the coasts of Japan just before midnight on January 27, 1700.

They linked it to a powerful seismic event in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, along the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

‘Cascadia can make an earthquake almost 30 times more energetic than the San Andreas to start with,’ Chris Goldfinger, a professor of geophysics at Oregon State University told CNN.

‘Then it generates a tsunami at the same time, which the side-by-side motion of the San Andreas can’t do’.

The Cascadia could deliver a huge 9.0-magnitude quake and the shaking could last anything from three to five minutes, scientists claim.

‘In this case, three minutes – and I’ve been in a 9 in Japan – three minutes is an eternity,’ said Goldfinger. ‘It is a very, very long time.’

Goldfinger says we’ll lose bridges, highway routes and that the coast will probably be entirely closed down.

As a result it would be difficult to get around, and rescue crews will be overwhelmed.

Federal, state and military officials have been working together to draft plans to be followed when the ‘Big One’ happens.

These contingency plans reflect deep anxiety about the potential gravity of the looming disaster: upward of 14,000 people dead in the worst-case scenarios, 30,000 injured,thousands left homeless and the region’s economy setback for yearsif not decades.

As a response, what planners envision is a deployment of civilian and military personnel and equipment that would eclipse the response to any natural disaster that has occurred thus far in the US.

There would be waves of cargo planes, helicopters and ships, as well as tens of thousands of soldiers, emergency officials, mortuary teams, police officers, firefighters, engineers, medical personnel and other specialists.

‘The response will be orders of magnitude larger than Hurricane Katrina or Super Storm Sandy,’ said Lt. Col. Clayton Braun of the Washington State Army National Guard.

ADVICE ON HOW TO SURVIVE A PACIFIC NORTHWEST EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI

This diagram show the areas where land will be most affected by the shocks, causing landslides or liquefaction.

Last year, scientists outlined their alarmingly unhelpful tips on how to survive the earthquake that will hit the Pacific Northwest.

The killer quake along Cascadia, a fault line which runs from Cape Mendocino, California, to Vancouver Island, Canada, is 72 years overdue, according to peer-reviewed studies.

The ‘Big One’ will hit when Juan de Fuca, a 700-mile chunk of the Pacific Ocean, slides under Canada and America, causing the entire coastal region to sink at least six feet.

When – not if – it arrives, it is unlikely the people of coastal Oregon, Washington and California will be able to escape.

But if they want to try, there are a few tips they should keep in mind.

Run, don’t drive, to higher ground, says Kevin Cupples, the city planner for the town of Seaside, Oregon, in an interview with the New Yorker.

The force of the quake will cause liquefaction, when solid ground acts like liquid, across vast swathes of the porous region.

In the areas that aren’t ‘liquefied’, the highways will likely be crumpled by landslides, with 30,000 avalanches set to hit Seattle alone.

Citizens will have a 20-minute interval to climb to the highest altitude possible before the full force of the tsunami hits, scientists predict.

Their alert will be when dogs start barking.

The first sign the quake is coming will be a set of compressional waves, only audible by dogs. Then there will be the quake, then 20 minutes later, the tsunami.

Geographers estimate that many could survive just by walking – however, they need to be going at least 3.5mph.

If everyone ups their average speed from 2.5mph to 3.5mph, the death toll drops to 15,970. About 70 per cent of them would be in Washington, nearly 30 per cent in Oregon and only 4 per cent in California.

And there is no point being a hero. ‘When that tsunami is coming, you run,’ Jay Wilson, the chair of the Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Commission, tells the New Yorker.

‘You protect yourself, you don’t turn around, you don’t go back to save anybody. You run for your life.’

The only other safety measure is to relocate away from the Pacific north west.

Oregon’s response plan is called the Cascadia Playbook, named after the threatening offshore fault — the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

The plan, unveiled last year, has been handed out to key officials so the state can respond quickly when disaster strikes.

‘That playbook is never more than 100 feet from where I am,’ said Andrew Phelps, director of the Oregon Office of Emergency Management.

A magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that devastated parts of Japan in 2011 gave greater clarity to what the Pacific Northwest needs to do to improve its readiness for a similar catastrophe.

‘The Japanese quake and tsunami allowed light bulbs to go off for policymakers,’ Phelps said.

Much still needs to be done, and it is impossible to fully prepare for a catastrophe of this magnitude, but those responsible for drafting the evolving contingency plans believe they are making headway.

Worst-case scenarios show that more than 1,000 bridges in Oregon and Washington state could either collapse or be so damaged that they are unusable.

The real question that you have to ask yourself is: would you be prepared?The second most important question is: are you prepared right now to survive such a catastrophe? The 3 Pioneer Survival Lessons We Should All Learn!

The main coastal highway, US Route 101, will suffer heavy damage from the shaking and from the tsunami.

Traffic on Interstate 5 — one of the most important thoroughfares in the nation — will likely have to be rerouted because of large cracks in the pavement.

Seattle, Portland and other urban areas could suffer considerable damage, such as the collapse of structures built before codes were updated to take into account a mega-quake.

The last full rip of the Cascadia Subduction Zone happened in January 1700.

The exact date and destructive power was determined from buried forests along the Pacific Northwest coast and an ‘orphan tsunami’ that washed ashore in Japan.

Geologists digging in coastal marshes and offshore canyon bottoms have also found evidence of earlier great earthquakes and tsunamis.

The inferred timeline of those events gives a recurrence interval between Cascadia megaquakes of roughly every 400 to 600 years, reports the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.

America’s Natural Nuclear Bunkers: Find the Closest One to Your Home – 10 Secret United States Government Bunkers

America’s Natural Nuclear Bunkers: Find the Closest One to Your Home – 10 Secret United States Government Bunkers

 

  • Hiding in secret underground bunkers, eating wild birds and pets and saving secretaries but not wives: How government elites planned to survive a nuclear attack
  • The US has a secret network of bunkers primarily built during the Cold War era to protect government officials in case of an atomic bomb
  • Presidents Kennedy, Eisenhower, Roosevelt and Truman knew there was only enough room for an elite few, but still assured citizens they would be safe in the event of a nuclear war
  • There is a bunker for officials under the White House, near Camp David and several scattered around the US
  • The wives of public officials would not be admitted to the elite hideout but secretaries would
  • There was also a plan to survive off rabbit meat, wild birds and civilian pets when food rations ran out
  • President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice were ushered into the bunker under the White House on 9/1

The United States of America contains many classified bunkers, particularly in relation to continuity of government (COG). In the event of a terrorist attack, nuclear strike, or other catastrophic occurrence, US government leaders congregate in top secret facilities, all of which are strong enough to withstand severe blasts and provide survival necessities for extended periods of time. These exclusive fortified shelters are some of America’s best-kept secrets and strongest lines of protection.

10.Presidential Emergency Operations Center

The Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC) is the bunker most often portrayed in popular culture. The infamous photograph of former President George W. Bush meeting with the National Security Council following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, offers a glimpse into one of the most secure facilities in the nation.

During this catastrophe, former Vice President Dick Cheney, his wife, and many other high-ranking government officials (mainly cabinet members) were promptly escorted to the isolation and security of the PEOC. It allegedly lies beneath the East Wing of the White House, the center of the executive branch and home of the president.

Originally constructed during World War II by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the PEOC is built to resist nuclear weapons and designed to house the president and other important US leaders in an extreme crisis.Although exact details about the PEOC are highly classified, it has been speculated that it serves as a communication hub to all other vital COG organizations. The PEOC has been depicted in blockbuster hits such as Olympus Has Fallen and White House Downas well as Emmy-winning television series like House of Cards.

9.Project Greek Island (Greenbrier)

Project Greek Island (aka Greenbrier) was a covert agreement between the US government and the Greenbrier Resort (hence the nickname) in West Virginia in the 1950s. The palatial hotel was to serve as the government continuity destination for the legislative branch.

The Greenbrier’s sheer size could accommodate the two auditoriums within the bunker, which held 470 people and 130 people, respectively. Despite the magnitude of the bunker, it took 30 years to be discovered. It has been reported that many aspects of the compound were visible in the hotel to the general public, including the giant blast doors.

The fact that the large majority of on-site bathrooms were male (given a male-dominated Congress) also ignited intrigue. Supposedly, the owners were asked questions about the complex even though it was not uncovered until several years later.

Composed of sleeping quarters, a medical facility, an advanced air-filtration system, a broadcast center, and more, Greenbrier possesses concrete doors 1 meter (3 ft) thick. Interestingly, the bunker was maintained and staffed by government employees posing as television specialists from a fictitious company.

Project Greek Island was eventually exposed by a major national newspaper article and decommissioned as a result. Afterward, some of the employees went on to provide tours of the bunker. They remain employees of the hotel today. There are no current reports as to where Congress would meet in a modern-day event of catastrophic proportions.

8.Raven Rock Mountain Complex

Nestled at Raven Rock Mountain near Blue Ridge Summit, Pennsylvania, the Raven Rock Mountain Complex is a military installation dubbed an “underground Pentagon.” The mountain features an extensive telecommunications center for the US Air Force, US Army, and US Navy in the event of a nuclear attack.

The complex was originally formed to be a Cold War emergency shelter and continues to act as a relocation point for military National Command Authorities. Its main occupant, however, is the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, which uses the multiple communications and computer systems.

It has been hypothesized that District 13 in The Hunger Games trilogy was modeled after the Raven Rock Mountain Complex due to its strong similarities in design and overall functions.

7.Cheyenne Mountain Complex

Located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the Cheyenne Mountain Complex is an expansive military base and nuclear bunker. This center was formerly the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) headquarters. NORAD remains headquartered in Colorado Springs.

The complex was constructed under 760 meters (2,500 ft) of solid granite and contains numerous buildings secured by 25-ton blast doors. The facility was engineered with an abundance of springs which prevent any of the given buildings from shifting more than 2.5 centimeters (1 in) during all potential types of disaster.

Initially created to strengthen Cold War defensive strategy, the bunker is equipped to withstand the most dangerous bombings, missile strikes, and nuclear attacks. It features advanced oxygen systems (to prevent the infiltration of radiation) in addition to its own power plant and water supply. The Cheyenne Mountain Complex ensures a 99.999 percent degree of reliability for these utilities.

6.Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center

In close proximity to the Capitol, the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center, which spans a staggering 564 acres in Virginia, serves as another mountain COG center. It is run by the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

READ MORE: IT IS DANGEROUS TO BE RIGHT WHEN THE GOVERNMENT IS WRONG – FEMA CAMPS IT’S READY FOR YOU! (VIDEO)

The site remained secret until TWA Flight 514 crashed nearby in December 1974 and it was revealed that Mount Weather had served as a bunker for the president of the United States. The Washington Post later reported that the facility was used by the helicopter-evacuated Congressional leadership following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City.

There is limited information regarding the bunker as it is still in operation today.

5.Deep Underground Command Center

Potentially the most mysterious bunker, the Deep Underground Command Center (DUCC) was a military installation proposed in the early 1960s. Situated 900–1,200 meters (3,000–4,000 ft) below the Earth’s surface near the Pentagon, the facility was designed to resist blasts of 200- to 300-megaton weapons without losing its structural integrity.

UPDATE : Darkest Days – How To Survive An EMP Attack To The Grid”

The DUCC was reportedly recommended to President John F. Kennedy immediately before his assassination. The proposal described a 50-person bunker with an expansion capability for 300 people. The result of the proposal remains unknown, although it has been surmised that it was halted following the president’s death.

4.Olney Federal Support Center

The Olney Federal Support Center possesses a certain mystique, to say the least. Little information is definitive about the bunker. However, it is known to specialize in data networking functions. It is located just west of Laytonsville, Maryland, in Montgomery  County and reportedly contains a large field of antennae for unknown purposes.

Many secret excavations have supposedly taken place at the site. None have been publicly addressed or explained. The facility also has strong ties to FEMA as part of its National Radio System, which links all other FEMA emergency operations bases.

3.Canadian Forces Base North Bay

The Canadian Forces Base (CFB) North Bay complex is one of a very few US international bunkers. It located in North Bay, Ontario, which is north of Toronto. The facility serves as the hub of NORAD in Canada and is situated 60 floors beneath the ground.

During the Cold War, CFB North Bay was precariously located between the Soviet Union and the United States, making it a hot spot for potential conflict. To combat this risk, it was designed to be able to resist an attack approximately 267 times more intense than the historically well-known bomb dropped at Hiroshima.

Though further information on CFB North Bay is scarce, it is known to have a strong correlation with the founding of NORAD in the late 1950s. This site remains operational.

2.Warrenton Training Center

Warrenton Training Center is a highly classified communications facility in Virginia. It primarily serves the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for various purposes, but it also contains a relocation bunker as part of the US COG program. The facility consists of four inconspicuous stations throughout the counties of Fauquier and Culpeper.

As the name implies, Warrenton Training Center is mainly a training school for several federal entities, including the CIA, the National Security Agency (NSA), the State Department, and Department of Defense (DOD). Although little is known about the use of the bunker, the site is definitely used for emergency NSA, DOD, and State Department practices.

1.Selfridge AFB Radar Station

Serving as a US Air Force Surveillance Radar Station, Selfridge began operations in 1959 in Michigan. The site is known for having several advanced radar technologies with groundbreaking detection capabilities, the ability to coordinate multiple surface-to-air missile launches, and the Missile Master bunker.

In 1960, the Army Air Defense Command Post (AADCP) was constructed to arrange surface-to-air missile launches for Project Nike, a complex system of facilities and weaponry during the Cold War. However, the AADCP was eventually closed.

This radar station is now the location of the United States Marine Corps Reserve unit, and the bunker was transformed into an air traffic control center. As the exact proceedings are highly classified (a common theme of US bunkers), little is known as to whether the base is operational.

Why are so many of the super wealthy suddenly preparing bug out locations?

When the elite of the world start preparing for doomsday, that is a very troubling sign. And right now the elite appear to be quietly preparing for disaster like never before.Even SWAT Teams are Helpless Against This…..

134 EARTHQUAKES RATTLE THE SAN ANDREAS FAULT IN JUST ONE WEEK-Is California about to be hit by the ‘Big One’?

134 EARTHQUAKES RATTLE THE SAN ANDREAS FAULT IN JUST ONE WEEK-Is California about to be hit by the ‘Big One’?

  • The earthquakes hammered a 3-mile stretch of the San Andreas fault
  • Seventeen were stronger than 2.5 magnitude and six were stronger than 3.0
  • It follows a string of ten tremors that struck Monterey County last week
  • The largest, a 4.6-magnitude quake, was felt in San Francisco 90 miles away

Fresh fears have been raised that a huge earthquake is about to hit California after a swarm of recent tremors.

In the last week 134 earthquakes have hammered a three-mile stretch around Monterey County on the San Andreas fault.

Of those earthquakes, 17 were stronger than 2.5 magnitude and six of them were stronger than 3.0, with more tremors expected in the coming weeks, experts warn.

It follows fears raised last week that the ‘Big One’ is about to hit after a series of ten ‘mini quakes’ struck the same area.

The swarm included one 4.6-magnitude quake that was felt in San Francisco more than 90 miles (145 km) away.

Scroll down for video


Since last week 134 earthquakes have hammered a three-mile stretch around Monterey County on the San Andreas fault which experts say is long overdue a ‘Big One’. Last week it suffered a 4.6-magnitude quake (pictured)

‘This one has been a quite productive aftershock sequence,’ said Ole Kaven, a US Geological Survey (USGS) seismologist.

‘We suspect there will be aftershocks in the 2 to 3 [magnitude] range for at least a few more weeks’, he said.

There have not been any reports of injuries, writes San Francisco news outlet SFGate.  

Last week’s swarm hit California’s Monterey County on Monday at 11:31am ET (4:31pm GMT) about 13 miles (20 km) northeast of Gonzales, near Salinas.

It dramatically increases the likelihood of a major quake in California, at least temporarily, experts claimed.

The initial 4.6-magnitude quake was followed by nine smaller aftershocks.

The largest of these measured magnitude 2.8, Annemarie Baltay, a seismologist with the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, told SFGATE.

There were no reports of injuries or damage to buildings.

WHAT IS THE BIG ONE? 

The ‘Big One’ is a hypothetical earthquake of magnitude 8 or greater that is expected to happen along the San Andreas fault.

Such a quake is expected to produce devastation to human civilisation within about 50-100 miles (80-160km) of the quake zone, especially in urban areas like Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Contingency plans warn upward of 14,000 people could die in worst-case scenarios, with 30,000 injured, thousands left homeless and the region’s economy setback for years, if not decades.

The quake happened at a depth of around 4 miles (6.5 km) on the infamous San Andreas Fault, close to a region where the Calaveras Fault branches off.

Experts have previously warned that any activity on the fault line is cause for concern.

‘Any time there is significant seismic activity in the vicinity of the San Andreas fault, we seismologists get nervous,’ Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Centre, told the LA Times last year.


Of those earthquakes, 17 were stronger than 2.5 magnitude and six of them were stronger than 3.0, with more tremors expected in the coming weeks, experts warn. Pictured is a view of the San Andreas fault in the Carrizo Plain

WHAT QUAKE MAGNITUDES MEAN 

Below a 3.0 magnitude: Earthquakes at this level are deemed level I in intensity. These are ‘Not felt except by a very few under especially favorable conditions,’ according to the USGS.

Magnitude 3.0 to 3.9:  These quakes ‘only felt by a few persons at rest, especially on upper floors of buildings,’ or level III, which carry ‘vibrations similar to the passing of a truck.’

Magnitude 4 to 4.9: These are widely felt but rarely cause serious damage.

Magnitude 5 to 5.9: The USGS says level VI intensity is where people start getting scared. 

By level VII we start seeing ‘considerable damage in poorly built or badly designed structures.’

Magnitude 6.0 to 6.9: This level quake can take down ‘chimneys, factory stacks, columns, monuments’ and walls


The official USGS forecast for California earthquakes now predicts a 16 per cent chance of an M7.5 quake or larger on this section of the fault within the next 30 years. Shown here is the chance of an earthquake across California over the next 30 years

‘Because we recognise that the probability of having a large earthquake goes up.’

Despite this, Ms Baltay said the recent quakes are part of normal seismic activity and that there was no suggestion the tremors were signs of larger activity to come.

‘This is really typical behaviour,’ she said.

‘It’s as if someone put an oil can into the fault and lubricated it.’

Fears of California’s ‘Big One’ were stirred in May when an expert warned that a destructive earthquake will hit the state ‘imminently’.

Seismologist Dr Lucy Jones, from the US Geological Survey, warned in a dramatic speech that people need to act to protect themselves rather than ignoring the threat.

Dr Jones said people’s decision not to accept it will only mean more suffer as scientists warn the ‘Big One’ is now overdue to hit California.

In a keynote speech to a meeting of the Japan Geoscience Union and American Geophysical Union, Dr Jones warned that the public are yet to accept the randomness of future earthquakes. 

People tend to focus on earthquakes happening in the next 30 years but they should be preparing now, she warned. 

EARTHQUAKE WARNINGS

Seismologist Lucy Jones from the US Geological Survey warned she is trying to make people accept the fact catastrophe is imminent and that they need to prepare themselves. 

Dr Jones said our decision to not accept it will only mean more people suffer as scientists warn the ‘Big One’ is now overdue to hit California.

Dr Jones, who is from the US Geological Survey said there are three key reasons why the peril is so frightening – it cannot be seen, it is uncertain and it seems unknowable.

This means people bury their heads in the sand and pretend it won’t happen.

‘We find patterns even when they’re not real,’ Dr Jones said. 

She tweeted on 23 May; ‘I’m not trying to terrify people. I’m trying to inspire action that will prevent our scenarios from coming true. It’s in our power to change’.

CALIFORNIA AT RISK OF DEVASTATING MEGAQUAKE

A report from the U.S. Geological Survey has warned the risk of ‘the big one’ hitting California has increased dramatically.

Researchers analysed the latest data from the state’s complex system of active geological faults, as well as new methods for translating these data into earthquake likelihoods.

The estimate for the likelihood that California will experience a magnitude 8 or larger earthquake in the next 30 years has increased from about 4.7 per cent to about 7.0 per cent, they say.

We are fortunate that seismic activity in California has been relatively low over the past century,’ said Tom Jordan, Director of the Southern California Earthquake Center and a co-author of the study.

‘But we know that tectonic forces are continually tightening the springs of the San Andreas fault system, making big quakes inevitable.’ 

ast week’s swarm hit California’s Monterey County on Monday at 11:31am ET (4:31pm GMT) about 13 miles (20 km) northeast of Gonzales, near Salinas

Her team published a scenario of a 7.8 earthquake on the San Andreas fault that could kill many people and devastate 15,000 buildings. 

In 2011 a magnitude nine earthquake hit the east coast of Japan, killing around 20,000 people.

‘The city leaders ignored protocol that said to move to higher ground and conducted their emergency meeting in the city hall’, said Dr Jones.

‘When the tsunami poured over the sea wall, they lost over 1,000 people, including most of their city government’. 

PLANS FOR ‘THE BIG ONE’ 

Federal, state and military officials have been working together to draft plans to be followed when the ‘Big One’ happens.

These contingency plans reflect deep anxiety about the potential gravity of the looming disaster: upward of 14,000 people dead in the worst-case scenarios, 30,000 injured, thousands left homeless and the region’s economy setback for years, if not decades.

As a response, what planners envision is a deployment of civilian and military personnel and equipment that would eclipse the response to any natural disaster that has occurred so far in the US.

There would be waves of cargo planes, helicopters and ships, as well as tens of thousands of soldiers, emergency officials, mortuary teams, police officers, firefighters, engineers, medical personnel and other specialists.

‘The response will be orders of magnitude larger than Hurricane Katrina or Super Storm Sandy,’ said Lt. Col. Clayton Braun of the Washington State Army National Guard.
