8/31/2014 — Fracking Earthquakes Return to Colorado + Live stream of Iceland Volcanic Eruption

Just as we saw in 2011, 2012, and 2013 .. a series of small / moderate earthquakes began to occur in the fracking operations ADJACENT to Oklahoma, and Arkansas after larger West Coast movement.

Today, August 31 2014, the Trinidad Colorado fracking operation, located near the Colorado / New Mexico border, produced an earthquake (after a period of silence spanning multiple months).

As we saw in 2011, first a series of West Coast earthquakes (California / Oregon / Mexico), followed by larger movement at the fracking operations in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas.

After we saw movement at the midwest Fracking operations, it was followed by movement at the magma chambers of Yellowstone.

Finally, after we saw movement in Yellowstone, there was movement along the rest of the craton edge — at areas in Colorado, East Coast Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Quebec Canada.

Above: August 10-24, 2011 — A series of earthquakes spanning the entire edge of the craton, showing as multiple small / moderate earthquakes at EVERY fracking operation, and dormant volcano. Idaho/Yellowstone, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Illinois, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and Quebec Canada

This happened again in 2012.  A series of West Coast earthquakes , followed by midwest movement, followed by Western Craton edge movement, followed by the rest of the craton edge compensating the original movement with new earthquakes at the fracking operations (drilling locations) in Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York.

Above: After 2 weeks of severe movement, by early March 2012, several noteworthy earthquakes had occurred directly upon the edge of the craton, in Quebec Canada, at the border of New York and Canada, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Idaho/Yellowstone, Utah, Nevada, and the West Coast (Oregon / California / BC).

 


Repeat the aforementioned in 2013, but REMOVE the states which banned new injection well operations.  The earthquakes in 2013-2014 centered in Oklahoma / Kansas / Yellowstone.  Very few in Texas, or Colorado.

Above: December 16 2013 — Again we see a series of larger West Coast earthquakes , followed by movement in the Midwest at the fracking operations of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Dakotas, also movement at the dormant volcanic sites Idaho/Yellowstone, Nevada, and California.

 


We’ve seen these events repeat YET AGAIN in 2014:

Above: March 12, 2014 — This diagram shows 7 days of earthquakes leading up to March 12, again we see large West coast movement followed by subsequent movement along the craton edge at the fracking operations, and weak points such as dormant volcanoes / old fault lines.

At the same time all the movement is occurring at the fracking operations, we also must make note of the multiple earthquakes at dormant volcanic locations in the United States.  Nevada, Arizona, Idaho/Yellowstone, and in California.  All showing activity at dormant volcanic locations.

The global unrest is showing around the Pacific, via multiple simultaneous large volcanic eruptions, this week alone we saw Papua New Guinea erupt, as well as Bardarbunga Volcano in Iceland.

Worthy to note, as we saw in 2011, 2012, and 2013 … now in 2014 we’re hearing new reports this week of “sulfur smells” showing up in multiple areas along the edge of the craton, past several days reports in Pennsylvania and Salton Sea volcanic buttes in California.

Hydrogen Sulfide, which smells like natural gas / rotten eggs, is a common byproduct of tectonic movement, crustal displacement, and rising Magma.

Speaking of “rising”.  Last week, reports that California is RISING at an alarming rate, upwards of 1/2 inch in the past several months.  The professionals are blaming the DROUGHT as the cause of the rising crust underneath the plate.   This is an obvious cover story, as we all know drought does not cause expansion in the earths crust.

Take the “California rising” news in conjunction with the other news over the past several months, that the magma chambers on the West Coast are “recharging” and “refilling”.  That Yellowstone has risen over 2 1/2 inches since New Years, and moved 1/2 inch SOUTHEAST along the craton edge in the same time!

Keep in mind the number of landslides, collapses, sinkholes, and other geologic phenomenon reported recently.  For sure, an increase in these events has become noticeable.

Most of these seismic events are indeed related.  We need to keep watch along the edge of the craton, as well as the areas to the North and South of the West Coast of the United States (BC and Mexico) for the next several days.  Possible large movement could come to the areas adjacent to the United States, as compensation movement for the excessive US activity in the past week.

California’s 6.0M actually displaced ground water aquifers to the surface, causing water to flow in dry creek beds. Thus, we can conclude major movement occurred along the NW portion of the plates edge…. meaning… Keep watch on the areas North of the original California movement in Napa Valley / San Francisco.

 

 

8/31/2014 — Bardarbunga Volcano in Iceland erupting lava and ash

The buildup to eruption at Bardarbunga volcano has been stop and go for over a week.

Multiple large earthquakes, and smaller seismic swarms are accompanying the movement of magma underground as it presses towards the surface.

Now we are seeing visible lava, erupting from a fissure forming to the Northeast of the caldera.
