11/23/2014 — Fracking Earthquakes return to Texas — Dallas Metropolitan area hit with a 3.4M event

After months of silence in Texas, an earthquake struck near downtown Dallas within just a few hundred feet of an old well, and a few miles of the nearest “frack” well.

This comes just under two weeks after directly issuing a forecast to watch Texas at the fracking operations for possible movement.

Forecast to be hit, and was hit within 2 weeks.

Also, within an hour of the 3.4M striking the Texas fracking operation, ANOTHER 3.4M earthquake struck due North at the Oklahoma fracking operation.

The Oklahoma 3.4M event occurred just 1,000 feet from the nearest frack well.

From the USGS regarding Texas induced seismicity (man made earthquakes due to drilling / oil pumping / fracking):

Earthquakes in the Stable Continental Region

Natural Occurring Earthquake Activity

Most of North America east of the Rocky Mountains has infrequent earthquakes. Here and there earthquakes are more numerous, for example in the New Madrid seismic zone centered on southeastern Missouri, in the Charlevoix-Kamouraska seismic zone of eastern Quebec, in New England, in the New York – Philadelphia – Wilmington urban corridor, and elsewhere.

However, most of the enormous region from the Rockies to the Atlantic can go years without an earthquake large enough to be felt, and several U.S. states have never reported a damaging earthquake.

Earthquakes east of the Rocky Mountains, although less frequent than in the West, are typically felt over a much broader region than earthquakes of similar magnitude in the west. East of the Rockies, an earthquake can be felt over an area more than ten times larger than a similar magnitude earthquake on the west coast.

It would not be unusual for a magnitude 4.0 earthquake in eastern or central North America to be felt by a significant percentage of the population in many communities more than 100 km (60 mi) from its source. A magnitude 5.5 earthquake in eastern or central North America might be felt by much of the population out to more than 500 km (300 mi) from its source. Earthquakes east of the Rockies that are centered in populated areas and large enough to cause damage are, similarly, likely to cause damage out to greater distances than earthquakes of the same magnitude centered in western North America.

Most earthquakes in North America east of the Rockies occur as faulting within bedrock, usually miles deep. Few earthquakes east of the Rockies, however, have been definitely linked to mapped geologic faults, in contrast to the situation at plate boundaries such as California’s San Andreas fault system, where scientists can commonly use geologic evidence to identify a fault that has produced a large earthquake and that is likely to produce large future earthquakes.

Scientists who study eastern and central North America earthquakes often work from the hypothesis that modern earthquakes occur as the result of slip on preexisting faults that were formed in earlier geologic eras and that have been reactivated under the current stress conditions. The bedrock of Eastern North America is, however, laced with faults that were active in earlier geologic eras, and few of these faults are known to have been active in the current geologic era.

In most areas east of the Rockies, the likelihood of future damaging earthquakes is currently estimated from the frequencies and sizes of instrumentally recorded earthquakes or earthquakes documented in historical records.

Induced Seismicity

As is the case elsewhere in the world, there is evidence that some central and eastern North America earthquakes have been triggered or caused by human activities that have altered the stress conditions in earth’s crust sufficiently to induce faulting.

Activities that have induced felt earthquakes in some geologic environments have included impoundment of water behind dams, injection of fluid into the earth’s crust, extraction of fluid or gas, and removal of rock in mining or quarrying operations. In much of eastern and central North America, the number of earthquakes suspected of having been induced is much smaller than the number of natural earthquakes, but in some regions, such as the south-central states of the U.S., a significant majority of recent earthquakes are thought by many seismologists to have been human-induced.

Even within areas with many human-induced earthquakes, however, the activity that seems to induce seismicity at one location may be taking place at many other locations without inducing felt earthquakes.

In addition, regions with frequent induced earthquakes may also be subject to damaging earthquakes that would have occurred independently of human activity. Making a strong scientific case for a causative link between a particular human activity and a particular sequence of earthquakes typically involves special studies devoted specifically to the question.

Such investigations usually address the process by which the suspected triggering activity might have significantly altered stresses in the bedrock at the earthquake source, and they commonly address the ways in which the characteristics of the suspected human-triggered earthquakes differ from the characteristics of natural earthquakes in the region.”

Original video update here:

November 22 2014:

A 6.8M earthquake struck in Japan (now revised by the USGS to 6.2M), and also a 6.3M earthquake struck Central China.

This comes on top of the 6.8M in New Zealand, the 7.2M in New Guinea, and multiple 6.0M earthquakes across the West Pacific…. all occurring in just 7 days time.

Above: GIF of the past 7 days of earthquakes 4.0M+ globally, unprecedented activity showing (up to Nov 22 2014 730pm CST)


If we add in the multiple dozens of 5.0M+ and 4.0M+ events, then we start to see the “Global Surge” the professionals are talking about.

The professionals held a full conference on the topic of the obvious global unrest taking place — calling it a “Global Surge” of seismic, and volcanic activity.

The cause of the unrest is still unknown.

11/20/2014 — Cluster of asteroid fragments heading away from Sun – detected on SOHO solar observatory

Video here:

On November 19, 2014 (20:42UTC) a cluster of debris was detected heading away from the Sun on the SOHO solar observatory LASCO C3 camera.

Each object appearing fairly large in comparison to Earth, all heading in the same direction , seen for only ONE frame due to the camera feed cutting out for several hours after this image appears (what are the chances ? )

These objects are not to be confused with regular particle activity seen on the camera. Most likely asteroid debris of some kind.  If these were comets, the tails would be facing AWAY from the Sun.  Oddly, if these are asteroid fragments then they are very large.

These objects do NOT appear to be Earth directed at the moment, however a detailed count reveals about 18 different objects — meaning there are now at least 18 more new inner solar system asteroids to worry about.
