— A year after tsunami, a cloud of distrust hangs over Japan —

BY JOHN M. GLIONNA
LOS ANGELES TIMES via
www.miamiherald.com/2012/03/10

TOKYO --" Veteran fish seller Yoshito Shimada is under siege. At a grocery store in Tokyo's Shibuya district, mothers pushing strollers demand proof that the daily catch isn't from the waters off the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

"I tell them the government checks the fish for radiation, but they don't trust elected officials, or anyone," said Shimada, his blue shirt stained with fish blood. "A year after the disaster, Japan is still afraid of its own food."

Even in Tokyo, more than 200 miles from the northeastern region devastated by the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami that caused radiation to spew from the nuclear plant, residents fear that local schoolyards are laced with dangerous isotopes.

Citizen collectives wander streets with dosimeters to make sure their neighborhoods remain radiation-free, conducting spot checks on fish and produce.

A year after the worst natural disaster in their country's history, residents of Japan are still struggling to cope with the staggering toll of a catastrophe that left nearly 20,000 dead or missing. But a more insidious legacy may be a shaken trust - in their government, in their source of energy, and even in the food that sustains them.

"Many Japanese feel they've been lied to by their government," said Mitsuhiro Fukao, an economics professor at Keio University in Tokyo who has written about the public loss of trust. "In a time of disaster, people wanted the government to help them, not lie to them. And many wonder whether it could happen again."

Even though the tsunami had knocked out the cooling system at Fukushima, leading to meltdowns in three reactors, officials insisted that all was well at the seaside plant.

Recently released reports show that was far from the case... ... ..."

Hi Everybody...

Wanted to post some of this incredible information
that explains much (in detail) of what
we have already posted in these threads.


Turn up the volume... pay attention,
and watch this carefully to learn what can happen...
in split seconds...

— JAPAN - The Earthquake - 15 Minutes Live-Cam —


Frightening, yet fascinating stuff ...

— Power of a waveform... beyond imagination... —
       

This is the actual waveform of one of the aftershocks, sped up 100 times to put those destructive 0.1Hz to 20Hz waveforms up in to "our' human hearing range, to be able to "hear" it's power... and it's violence in nature, when the earth snaps.

.... more unbelievable stuff with some good explainations and perspective
offered in the next posts.

Stay safe always,
~Geno

Earthquake eyed in mysterious Wisconsin booms
Geophysicist says loud booming noises have been known to accompany earthquakes

Earthquake eyed in mysterious Wisconsin booms
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: Thursday, March 22, 2012, 8:30 PM
Updated: Thursday, March 22, 2012, 8:30 PM

"MILWAUKEE — A minor earthquake occurred this week near the eastern Wisconsin city where researchers have been investigating a series of unexplained booming sounds, federal geologists said Thursday.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the 1.5 magnitude earthquake struck Tuesday just after midnight in Clintonville, a town of about 4,600 people about 40 miles west of Green Bay.

Geophysicist Paul Caruso told The Associated Press that loud booming noises have been known to accompany earthquakes. It's possible the mysterious sounds that town officials have been investigating are linked to the quake, he said.

Earthquakes can generate seismic energy that moves through rock at thousands of miles per hour, producing a sonic boom when the waves come to the earth's surface, Caruso said.

"To be honest, I'm skeptical that there'd be a sound report associated with such a small earthquake, but it's possible," he said. ..."


also...

"Clintonville resident Jordan Pfeiler, 21, said she doubted an earthquake caused the noises. She said the booms she experienced were in a series over the course of several hours and not continuous as she might have expected if they were caused by an earthquake.

Still, she said, "It's a little scary knowing Clintonville could even have earthquakes."


also...

"Jolene Van Beek, 41, had been jarred awake several times by late-night rumbling this week. When asked by telephone Thursday whether she thought the noises were caused by an earthquake, she joked that she was at a nearby lake "waiting for the tsunami to hit."

Could strange earth sounds become an advanced warning that an earthquake is on the way?

Fascinating, strange stuff. Could this be onto to something with respect to earthquake prediction?

Seismic chart shows that...
"...the ground is shaking in an unusual way"


...yikes!   This going on right now...

Question 1:
Will Wisconsin be the next epicenter of an earthquake event?

Question 2:
Is there any fracking going on anywhere nearby?

Question 3:
Could it possibility signal of the birth of a new volcano?


Hoping that nothing bad happens from this total mystery.

USGS is reporting that...
An earthquake has just struck

- MAULE, CHILE - Magnitude 7.1 -
     2012 March 25 22:37:06 UTC
    Sunday, March 25, 2012 at 06:37:06 PM at epicenter

Central Chile Rocked By 7.2 Earthquake
by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
March 25, 2012
— "A magnitude-7.1 earthquake struck central Chile Sunday night, the strongest and longest that many people said they had felt since a huge quake devastated the area two years ago. Some people were injured by falling ceiling material, but there were no reports of major damage or deaths due to quake-related accidents.

The quake struck at 7:30 p.m. about 16 miles north-northwest of Talca, a city of more than 200,000 people where residents said the shaking lasted about a minute.

Buildings swayed in Chile's capital 136 miles to the north, and people living along a 480-mile stretch of Chile's central coast were briefly warned to head for higher ground.

Residents were particularly alarmed in Constituciσn, where much of the coastal downtown at the mouth of a river was obliterated by the tsunami caused by the 8.8-magnitude quake in 2010.

Panic also struck in Santiago and other cities, with people running out of skyscrapers, and many neighborhoods were left partly or totally without electrical power. Phone service collapsed due to heavy traffic.

"There are some injuries but nothing serious," said Interior Minister Rodrigo Hinzpeter, who was serving as acting president while Sebastian Pinera is on tour in Asia.

Hinzpeter said authorities were conducting a thorough survey of the affected regions to look for damage.

The Chilean navy's hydrographic and oceanographic service and the national emergency office called off a tsunami warning for most of the central coast after an analysis showed the quake wasn't the type to provoke killer waves.

The alert was restored for the area closest to the epicenter after police noticed
the ocean had retreated about 130 feet from the shore
in the towns of Iloca and Duao. A sharp outsurge of surf sometimes is followed by a tsunami.... ..."
full NPR/AP Story from www.npr.org - continued (click here)

––••––
Note to self:

After a significant earthquake near a coastline, get to high ground for a while, no matter what...
especially if the ocean even hints of retreating!

I wanted to look at the skies
last night, to see if I could see
the Lyrid meteor shower,
but this Nor'Easter came plowing in around sunset with heavy storm clouds
and a massive temperature drop... so... nada here,
and it's still raining hard here on the East Coast, 24 hours later...but...
over in Mixey's neck of the continent...

AP/WashingtonPost reporting -explosion-heard-in-nevada-california- (full story, click here)


Mixey, did You see anything last night (or hear any sonic booms) or other fun stuff?


They are also saying that this particular meteor boom was not related to the Lyrid Meteor Shower...
(((how do they know that one?, I was also pondering.)))

this
be in anybody's best interest...

EXCEPT
Haliburtons'
GREEDY BEST INTERESTS!!!

- http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2012/03/fracking-doctors-gag-pennsylvania -


And... so one might ponder,
which politicians
actually signed this
and should be investigated
for, oh let's say,
possible bribes and kickbacks
while employed in political office???

According to http://truth-out.org/


The Guilty Parties
The bill’s primary sponsor in the House (Assembly) was
Brian Ellis (R-District 11).
The 19 cosponsors included
Samuel H. Smith (R-66),
Mike Turzai (R-28),
Stan Saylor (R-94), and
Dave Reed (R-62).
But take special note of the three Democrats who cosponsored:
Ken Smith (D-112),
Marc J. Gergely (D-35), and
Paul Costa (D-34).

(Contact info for some of them is below...)
http://truth-out.org/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=6675:fracking-industry-colludes-with-pennsylvania-legislature-to-create-dangerous-new-law (Click here)



I'd love to hear their explainations
to the News Media,
(ABC, CBS, CNN, FoxNews, KYW, MSNBC, NBC, 60 Minutes, BBC, ReutersNews, etc.,)
on exactly how this
"Doctor Gag Order"
actually benefits humans
in some way.

Japan marks 2nd anniversary of triple disaster

TOKYO (AP) "— Japan is marking the second anniversary of its earthquake, tsunami and nuclear catastrophe. More than 300,000 people are still displaced and virtually no rebuilding has begun. ... ..."

"...Some 160,000 evacuees remain uncertain if they will ever be able to return to abandoned homes around the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, where rectors melted down after the tsunami. ... ..."

And a look back at some of what happened on that day
as it unfolded to the world...

Scroll back to page 2 of this thread.... I had just finished posting an update here on Soulful Planet in another thread, It was about 2:15am , and I was just heading to bed when the news broke ...
and so I posted the info here on SP, right away, as I was finding it in videos from Japan... ~~~

(((from page 2)))...

..turn on the news...


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKh-QaeT6rc&feature=player_embedded

Hard to forget that night as Japan's nightmare unfolded nearly live over the internet.

and tomorrow, on Monday, March 11th 2013... 2 years has now gone by since it happened, and the News will no doubt be remembering what happened... and the many people still suffering in Japan,
from that days' ...triple disaster event.

Also...
p.s:
Throughout the footage of these unedited videos above,
take note of the cab of that blue crane on the dock,
and the water level's rise and fall ...



and rise and fall,
and rise and fall...

Yikes!

Mixey!!! Did You feel this one, or the aftershocks?



— March 11, 2013 —





http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2013/03/california-earthquake-wide-punch-.html (Click for Details)


— March 11.2013 —
"...Monday morning's magnitude 4.7 earthquake in Riverside County was the largest temblor to hit the Los Angeles region in three years and has produced more than 100 aftershocks.
It caused no major damage, but it was felt over what seismologists said was an unusually large area.
The quake was initially recorded as three separate quakes because a foreshock tricked seismographs into recording multiple quakes of multiple sizes, said Susan Hough, a USGS seismologist.

Earthquakes of a 4.7 magnitude are typically only felt about 120 miles away from the epicenter, but Monday morning's quake traveled farther, shaking coffee cups as far as Los Angeles. The USGS said it was felt as far away as Arizona.

That's because the quake occurred in the San Jacinto Mountains, which are composed of hard granite rock that transmits energy more efficiently, Hough said.

The quake occurred along the San Jacinto Fault Zone,
which runs through
San Bernardino, San Diego, Riverside and Imperial counties
roughly parallel
to the San Andreas Fault.
It's one of three fault zones that absorb friction ... ... "

Regarding the multiple tornados that have just devastated Oklahoma's tornado alley leaving the death toll rising... as parents morn the fate of their children who's lives were literally ripped away as their school was in the path of these monster winds...

I'm so pissed off at this needless tragedy!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why in the hell don't ALL of these people have underground shelters to go to????????????????? Shouldn't this be a requirement????????????

We have to meet all sorts of seismic requirements out here in California. Shouldn't these people be required to have a safe place underground... ESPECIALLY FOR A SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The students were sent to a restroom. These people don't even have a collective brain between them.

Obama... If they want federal help, somebody needs to get in there, tune this place up and create A PLAN for the future! Don't just clean it up and rebuild!!!

 Yup!

Tonight's 5.1 earthquake in CA happened while Mixey & I were talking on the phone, coast to coast, catching up on "stuff". Mid sentence, Mixey stopped and said something like ... 'woah, we're having an earthquake'

While it was shaking there at Mixey's House, I went to the USGS site from here in PA... at that time it was just being posted as an M3.6 ...  the M5.1 followed. 

Mixey was describing the couch jumping and the chandelier swaying pretty good before it stopped.  Here's the detail from USGS:

M5.1 - 1km S of La Habra, California2014-03-29 04:09:42 UTC

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/ci15481673#summary


Tectonic Summary

A M5.1 earthquake occurred at 9:09PM on March 28, 2014, located 1 mile easy of La Habra, CA, or 4 miles north of Fullerton, CA. The event was felt widely throughout Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.  It was preceded by two foreshocks, the larger of M3.6 at 8:03pm.  The demonstration earthquake early warning system provided 4 second warning in Pasadena.  

There have been 23 aftershocks as of 10:00PM on March 28, the largest of which was a M3.6 at 9:30PM, and was felt locally near the epicenter. The aftershock sequence may continue for several days to weeks, but will likely decay in frequency and magnitude as time goes by.

The maximum observed instrumental intensity was VII, recorded in the LA Habra and Brea areas, although the ShakeMap shows a wide area of maximum intensity of VI. The maximum reported intensity for the Did You Feel It? map was reported at VI in the epicentral area.

This sequence could be associated with the Puente Hills thrust (PHT).  The PHT is a blind thrust fault that extends from this region to the north and west towards the City of Los Angeles.  It caused the M5.9 1987 Oct. 1 Whittier Narrows earthquake.  

Previously, the M5.4 2008 Chino Hills earthquake occurred in this region.  It caused somewhat stronger shaking in Orange County and across the Los Angeles Basin.  

The moment tensor shows oblique faulting, with a north dipping plane that approximately aligns with the Puente Hills thrust.
