Hi there, i remember that on here last year. I have never experienced one before that either! i agree it does certainly seem that something is afoot.
Though on a world scale apperently they do happen pretty often, just not on the scale of these in the
last few days. i'll see if i can post the link to site that tells you!

has anyone else noticed the sudden increase in number of earthquakes across the globe in past week?

On USGS, there's usually an average of about 20 or 25 per day... this week that has shot up... just on one day alone (Sat 3rd Oct) there were almost 80 quakes in one day... in a wide range of places.

We've also had several major quakes in one week, plus ensuing tsumanis.

I've been checking USGS almost daily past few years, and never seen such a big jump in the numbers... nor the amount at 10km depth either.

Also.. the storms in various countries are reported as being "worst in XXX Years", plus the typhoons being quoted as "far worse than normal".... plus several sudden and lethal flash floods and freak stoems (in places where normally they don't occur at all) ... plus sudden gales and marked changes in weather in unexpected places, not forgetting landslides... plus Droughts which have been said to be "more severe" than for decades etc., oh, and massive land fires (even 'smaller' ones in UK and Jersey this weekend!)... the Red Dust storms in Australia... all of this happening in recent weeks...

anyone else sensing something big has changed on earth in past few weeks... and maybe something/s even bigger will be coming soon??

"Indonesia will face a far more devastating earthquake, seismologists warn


'We don't think this was the big one,' says a scientist in the region. In Padang, rescue workers give up the search for more survivors and concentrate on recovering bodies and clearing rubble.

By Charles McDermid

October 6, 2009


Reporting from Padang, Indonesia - Expect a far more powerful earthquake than last week's magnitude 7.6 temblor to hit Indonesia's devastated Padang area in the next few decades.

That's the word from a team of leading seismologists, who said the worst is yet to come, although they cautioned that predicting the timing of earthquakes is an inexact science at best.

After a three-day review of seismic evidence using global-positioning equipment, scientists with the Earth Observatory of Singapore, or EOS, found that the earthquake that hit the Indonesian city of Padang did little to relieve the stored tension at the juncture of two tectonic plates.

The EOS team believes that the eventual energy release could result in an earthquake close to the scale of the magnitude 9 monster that triggered the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, killing more than 200,000 in a dozen countries.

"We don't think this was the big one," said Paramesh Banerjee, technical director of EOS, a $700-million government-funded institute for the study of tsunamis, volcanoes, earthquakes and climate. "It can happen any time -- now, in 20 years or more."

On Monday, rescue workers ended their search for life beneath the rubble, shifting their focus instead to helping survivors in the area around Padang, a port city of 900,000 on Sumatra island. But their efforts were hampered by torrential rain.

The government's official death toll stood at 603, although the United Nations said 1,100 people died and other disaster specialists said the number will probably climb to several thousand after more corpses are unearthed.

Gagah Prakoso, a spokesman for the Indonesian Search and Rescue Agency, told reporters that chances of anyone surviving this long without food and water were slim, prompting the decision to concentrate on finding bodies and cleaning up the rubble.

Indonesia faces a huge rebuilding task. More than 88,000 houses and 285 schools were destroyed in 10 districts, according to the U.N. and Indonesia's Disaster Management Agency, with an additional 100,000 public buildings and 20 miles of road damaged.

Seismologists said the earthquake occurred in the collision zone where the Indo-Australian Plate dives beneath the Sunda Plate, which is below Padang and the Indonesian province of Aceh, which was battered by the 2004 earthquake and tsunami.

"When one plate goes beneath another it's called 'subduction,' " Banerjee said. "But it doesn't go smoothly. It gets stuck and then it slips. This slip is an earthquake."

According to Richard Briggs of the U.S. Geological Survey, these plates converge, colliding at a few inches a year, with the stress stored for decades or centuries before being released suddenly as large, damaging earthquakes. The magnitude of the earthquake depends on the size of the fault and how much the fault slips during a sudden rupture.

In the case of the Sunda megathrust fault, which parallels the west coast of Sumatra, the 850-mile northern portion slipped as much as 100 feet in 2004, triggering the tsunami. In 2005, a 210-mile portion directly to the south slipped more than 40 feet during the magnitude 8.7 earthquake that devastated the Nias, Banyak and Simeulue islands.

The portion of the fault next in line, offshore Padang, has yet to slip despite the most recent quake
, according to the EOS.

The idea that a mammoth earthquake is coming to Padang is nothing new to paleoseismologist and EOS director Kerry Sieh, who has been studying the regions' tectonics for the last 18 years. Sieh's team has identified the sequence of Padang-area earthquakes using GPS data, historical records and the growth patterns of coral based on its uranium content.

Since the December 2004 tsunami, the scientists have produced papers and statements and spoken to local officials about the risk. With partial financing from the California Institute of Technology, where he had been a professor, Sieh printed posters in English and Indonesian and took them to outlying islands to discuss with village elders and fishermen what he believed was an inevitable earthquake and subsequent tsunami. "They were interested, but we weren't taken seriously," he said.

The city of Padang has tried to foster earthquake and tsunami preparedness by providing public service announcements, seminars and evacuation routes. Still, Wednesday's quake brought a high toll in lives and buildings -- a fact exacerbated by the area's relative poverty and questionable construction standards.

Vice Gov. H. Marlis Rahman acknowledged that the area needs to prepare for the next earthquake. But experts warn that apathy and human nature often take their course.

"The problem is we're too busy with laundry, taking kids to school, catching fish to feed your family to worry about low-probability, low-risk hazards," Sieh said. But, he added, the risk of not preparing for the inevitable is great.

"The people in charge of Padang have had lots of things going on," he said, "but they've got a lot more now."

Hey worlds, have you checked the alert map? I've never seen so many large quakes in one spot.

Hi

yes, I did. I like the ECETI Alert map best though..

http://eceti.org/Eceti.EarthChangesTopicII.html

Me neither.. not seen so many major quakes in such a short time as past month... something is going on, that's for sure.. whether it's from nature, man-made.. or from 'up above'!!

South Pacific tsunami warning causes panic

Panic has swept across the Pacific after two strong undersea earthquakes off the coast off Vanuatu triggered a tsunami warning for the region.



By Bonnie Malkin in Sydney
Published: 7:00AM BST 08 Oct 2009

Earthquake location map shows the location of a 7.8 magnitude earthquakethat struck off the northwest of Santo, Vanuatu Photo: REUTERS


The quakes, measuring 7.8 and 7.1 in magnitude, struck at about 9am local time and were immediately followed by a tsunami warning for 11 Pacific nations including Vanuatu, Fiji, New Caledonai, Nauru and the Solomon Islands. The warning, made by the US Geological Survey based in Hawaii, was later expanded to cover New Zealand, Australia and Samoa.
News of the alert caused widespread panic, with hundreds of people fleeing from the coast to higher ground.


Witnesses described scenes of chaos in Vanuatu.
"People are hysterical, trying to find out what's going on and contacting family members. Phone lines are going down as a result," said an official with aid group CARE Australia.
The capital shut down as workers fled and hotels cleared tourists off the beaches, a resort official said.
"Shops and offices in the city have been closed and workers have run to higher ground in case of a tsunami," said Arjun Channa, general manager of the luxury Le Meridien resort in Port Vila.
"At the hotel, all guests have been cleared off the beaches and we are contacting all cruises to stop those and get the passengers to safer areas, just in case" he said.
"We have evacuated everyone to higher ground - well above sea-level - and are preventing anyone from going into town," he said, before the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center cancelled the warning.
The tsunami warning was later cancelled, but it did little to reassure worried islanders.
In New Caledonia and Fiji schools and offices close to the water were closed and tourists were told to move into the hills.
In Tuvalu, a low-lying nation of eight coral atolls with about 10,000 people, thousands fled inland, some clustering around the government building in the capital, Funafuti — the only multistory building in the country.
In Samoa, where at least 160 were killed in the Sept. 29 tsunami, the alerts caused thousands of people to "run for the hills," Keni Lesa said from the capital, Apia.
"Thousands just dropped everything — people just ran for it," he said from the centre of the city, shortly after the alert was cancelled. "The word tsunami is a scary word here right now

I felt padangs earthquake last week from singapore. My building shook side to side. We often feel the tremors here but last week was very noticeable and I knew it was an earthquake in Indo straight away then just waiting for it in the news.
