Hundreds Of Earthquakes Slam Central Ohio Baffling Geologists

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) – Hundreds of low-level and medium-sized earthquakes have struck central Idaho since last month, puzzling geologists who wonder whether the ruptures portend a much larger temblor to come or are merely the rumblings of a seismic fault previously thought to be dormant.

“What has many of us scratching our heads is the present-day swarm doesn’t appear to be on the big, active fault in the area that ruptured in 1983 and caused the largest earthquake in Idaho,” Phillips said.

The recent earthquake swarm, beginning on March 24 and climaxed by a 4.9 magnitude tremor on Saturday, has produced no reports of injuries or severe damage but has rattled nerves in a region where Idaho’s most powerful known quake, measured at 6.9, killed two children in 1983.

Saturday’s earthquake was the strongest recorded in the state since 2005 and was followed on Monday by a magnitude 4.4 event that struck 10 miles north of the small ranching community of Challis, Idaho, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The Challis tremor knocked pictures and animal mounts from walls, rattled dishes off tables and was felt by residents in neighboring Montana more than 100 miles from the quake’s epicenter, officials said.

The latest seismic surge, including 100 small to moderate quakes on Monday alone, has galvanized government scientists, who planned to install special seismometers in the area as early as Tuesday to more closely track the activity. source – Yahoo News

      Ohio, Idaho, same thing I guess to NTEB.

    • Rob

      Ohio =/= Idaho

      Yellowstone about to BLOW? Because the illegal sodomite negro and the proven coward Kerry want to divide the land of Israel and instead God is making plans to divide America??? Both figuratively and literally?

      Remove the foreign foul sodomite, reform, and the problem will go away.

      • HfjNUlYZ

        Can you stop with the racist overtones you phony christian?

        • MSG Chicken

          We need to get the REAL phonies out like the illegal sodomite negro out of office. His love for America is PHONY.

          He is an ENEMY of the people. All his agendas scream loudly that he has declared YOU the enemy! Don’t phool yourself with phoniness.

      It’s called ‘Fracking’. :wink:

      2014-04-16 11:01:34 – Unusual geological event – USA

      EDIS CODE: UGE-20140416-43394-USA
      Date & Time: 2014-04-16 11:01:34 [UTC]
      Area: USA, State of Idaho, Borah Peak Mountain,


      A warning issued today by the Ministry of the Russian Federal for Civil Defense,
      Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters (EMERCOM) has
      advised the World Organization of Volcano Observatories (WOVO) that a “Red
      Alert” status level for the Borah Peak Mountain in Idaho (North America/United
      States) may be warranted in the coming weeks due to increased volcanic-seismic
      activity detected by both ground and satellite observations. This is the second
      such warning issued by EMERCOM this year and follows their 24 January prediction
      that an earthquake and ensuing tsunami are expected to strike off the
      southwestern coast of Sakhalin Island, to the north of the epicenter of the 2
      August 2007 6.2 magnitude earthquake in the town of Nevelsk that had, likewise,
      been successfully predicted by Russian scientists. Important to note about
      EMERCOM predictions is that unlike their Western counterparts, Russian
      scientists suggest four new techniques for long-range predicti
      on of
      earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, which are universal and can be applied to
      all of the regions of the earth. This type of forecasting has no psychic aspects
      to it at all, and is called “phase trajectory technique.” It concerns a
      simultaneous analysis of periodic and quasi-periodic space rhythms, which
      involve many factors that have a great effect on these terrible formations,
      including but not limited to lunar tides and solar cycles. The “Red Alert”
      status for Borah Peak Mountain (the largest in Idaho), this report states, means
      that an eruption is forecast to be imminent with significant emission of ash
      into the atmosphere likely.rnrnFirst arousing EMERCOM concerns about Borah Peak
      Mountain, this report continues, was the 4.8 magnitude earthquake which struck
      the Yellowstone Caldera (Supervolcano) on 30 March that was the largest trembler
      to hit this region in nearly 30 years and was preceded by a series of small
      earthquakes in central Idaho and accompanied by a near simul
      3.1 magnitude earthquake occurring near Borah Peak Mountain on the same date.
      Prompting the EMERCOM warning about Borah Peak Mountain to WOVO, this report
      says, was yesterdays (12 April) 4.9 magnitude earthquake in central Idaho near
      the city of Challis, which on 28 October 1983 suffered a 6.9 magnitude
      earthquake which killed two children. Critical to note about Borah Peak Mountain
      and central Idaho, this report says, is that it is a part of what is called the
      Internmountain Seismic Belt (ISB) [photo map 1st right] which extends from
      Southern California and connects many of the Western United States regions, most
      particularly the Yellowstone Caldera, and is overdue for a catastrophic volcanic
      eruption event. As to how seismically violent this region is, EMERCOM in their
      report further notes, the 1983 Borah Peak Mountain earthquake ranks as one of
      the most powerful earthquakes in the 20th century in the lower 48 US States and
      produced a 21 mile long scarp that was raised at p
      as much as 14 feet and is still visible today. Of greatest concern to EMERCOM
      scientists regarding Borah Peak Mountain volcanic activity, this report says,
      are the growing number of fracking operations currently being allowed in the ISB
      regions which are now at the very edge of the Yellowstone Caldera, including its
      two most seismically active States, Nevada and Idaho. Most perplexing, this
      report says, are that these fracking operations in the ISB volcanic zone are
      being allowed to continue by the Obama regime in spite of their own experts
      findings and recommendations, especially from this past weeks report from their
      Midwestern region which, in part, states: “Ohio geologists have found a probable
      connection between fracking and a sudden burst of mild earthquakes last month in
      a region that had never experienced a temblor until recently, according to a
      state report. The quake report, which coincided with the state’s announcement of
      some of the nation’s strictest limits on fr
      near faults, marked the strongest link to date between nerve-rattling shakes and
      hydraulic fracturing – the process of firing water, sand and chemicals deep into
      the earth to eject oil and natural gas out of ancient rock. Last month, Ohio
      indefinitely shut down Hilcorp Energy’s fracking operation near the Pennsylvania
      border after five earthquakes, including one magnitude-3 temblor that awoke many
      Ohioans from their sleep.” As to the space rhythms, lunar tides and solar cycle
      analysis prompting this “Red Alert” volcanic warning for Borah Peak Mountain,
      this EMERCOM report concludes, they are partly based upon the coming Blood Moon
      Tetrad Cycle due to begin this week on 15 April and conclude on 28 September
      2015.rnrnRelated sites:rnrn

      “Idaho/Ohio region”?

      You mean like 2/3 of the upper U.S?
