‘Puzzling’ quake hits next to NYC-area nuclear plant — “Not along any known fault lines” — Many reports of ‘loud boom’ echoing through area — Residents ‘startled into streets’ — Professor: “They tend to come in bursts… I’m concerned, let’s put it that way… Significant hazard… We don’t understand why these occur” (AUDIO)

Journal News, July 6, 2014 (emphasis added): People living in the Hudson Highlands were startled Saturday morning by an earthquake that […] was accompanied by a loud boom […] those near the epicenter were startled into the streets. […] The U.S. Geological Survey listed the event at a category 5 earthquake, which typically causes light shaking and no damage.

WAMC, July 7, 2014: Nano Seeber is a research professor with Columbia University […] He says the small quake was not along any fault lines. “The Hudson Highlands is a belt of old crystalline rocks [and] have a concentration of earthquakes […] There is fault […] toward the southeast […] and there’s a concentration of earthquakes near this fault. And of course this is of great concern because there is a nuclear power plant as well along this fault […] I am concerned, let’s put it that way.” […] Seeber says, as a seismologist, the earthquake is bit puzzling. “There is significant earthquake hazard  […] we don’t understand basically why these earthquakes occur.”

Kathy Percacciolo, Garrison resident: “I thought somebody hit the house. I went outside to look and my daughter came running out and said, ‘What was that?’ I said maybe it was an earthquake.” She felt one once before, around 1984.

Christine Schaetzl, Garrison resident: “We heard this loud boom and the windows shook. My husband went outside to see if someone’s gas grill blew up… It was kind of scary. It echoed through the valley.” She’d felt earthquakes before, but had never heard one.

Thomas Pitt, Highland Falls resident: [Pitt] heard and felt the quake as well, even though he’s on the other side of the Hudson River. “There’s this big rumble, a loud boom. Everyone was coming out of their houses, looking for smoke.”

Robert Pidgeon, Cortlandt Manor resident: He heard a loud, short sound “that wasn’t normal […] The trees made an odd sound like something was shaking them. I actually thought it was a bunch of deer running.”

Prof. Leonardo Seeber, Columbia University: The earthquake was […] not along any known fault lines […] Scientists keep a close eye on the Ramapo Fault because of the Indian Point nuclear power plant […] more earthquakes might be coming soon. “They tend to come in bursts.”

Rafael Abreu, USGS geophysicist: New Yorkers have nothing to worry about. “Definitely not an indication that there is a larger earthquake coming or anything else.”

  • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

    The very large earthquakes of the recent past and the shift in the Earth's axis has change the chandler wobble and the Earth is attempting to rebalance itself. Problem is where there were no faults known in the past, we may have new faults form, as the tectonic plates strain and push against each other cracking along the way…

    Just another reason to shudder all Nuclear Power Plants worldwide…

          Said the scientist to the poet
          being startled from their beds,
          "What in hell was that?
          Damn, I've bumped my head!
          That's not supposed to happen
          in studies that I've read.
          But why ask you for insights?
          It's to fantasy you've fled,
          string common words to clothe your thought
          while we concoct our own instead
          to weave elaborate fabrics patterned
          of rich of elemental thread."

          And the poet replied,
          "It's the dynamic earth, you silly man.
          Go back to sleep."

  • MoonlightEmpire MoonlightEmpire

    I don't think it was a quake at all.

    I experienced 3 of these "boom" events in central New Jersey over the past three years (ever since 3/11, never before).

    I think it's atmospheric. Someone is testing aircraft that create sonic booms…or some other technology that causes a sonic boom-like event in the atmosphere.

    I experienced one of these while I was indoors, one while in the garage, and one while outside. The times when I was inside, I ran outside immediately to see what happened. It was always during a perfectly clear sky and there were no planes in the sky (which is odd for this area). Only once (when I was outside and heard the boom) did I see a plane, and it was much higher in the sky than I had seen any other aircraft before.

    These booms are pretty huge. They shake your house like slamming a heavy door as hard as you can. There is no aircraft noise that leads up to it, though. It just comes out of nowhere.

    Still, I could be wrong that it's from the sky. I guess it could be underground explosions of some sort. It's not a quake because there is no earth shaking…just a single boom that shakes everything once with a single compression wave.

    You could say it's caused by fracking…but to my understanding there is no fracking allowed yet in N.J. I'm not sure about N.Y.

  • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

    Experimental aircraft are being tested on a regular basis everywhere..

  • Socrates

    I've been hearing subsonic rumblings around San Diego. I believe these low frequency vibrations are associated with invisible aircraft. There is something traveling up there because of doppler effects, yet you cannot actually see anything. They are more likely high atmosphere effects from activity on the sun affecting the core of the earth.

    My astrophysics experts tell me that earth-sun interactions and high atmosphere changes are happening. The core of the earth reacts to changes on the sun and on Jupiter, a super-massive planet. Methane is released through the crust and mantle. The wobble of the earth could worsen. The earth could experience large ocean waves a mile high that could sweep the land masses.

    My geologist friends see things differently about seismic activity. I tend to believe that solar system dynamics such as earth-sun interactions determine many random effects here on earth.

    We do know that the earth is round. Beyond that, we still have much to learn.

    • Socrates

      High altitude wind streams are changing drastically. But if you dig inti Miocene clay in Barstow, California, you will see that drastic changes have occured in the weather during a scant 12 million year period. Volcanoes came and went. Species lived and died. Mankind is too ego-centric to comprehend that he is not omnipotent. Our species will self-extinct sooner rather than later, unless forces of nature do it first. Either way, our species will be consigned to the scapheap of geological time. We are really unimportant in the great scheme of things. One sweep of a comet's tail, or a wobble induced by a melted ice cap, a rogue mass coronal projection…. an incoming astroid.

      Our nuclear infrastructure might help us in an ice age; otherwise, it is a liability.

    Zeta Talk has their own peculiar take on Earth Hum, written up again in this week's newsletter.
    The Zeta's say the hum is caused by the bowing of the bedrock from San Diego to the mouth of the St. Lawrence Seaway. 😉

        My calculations, based on Sitchin's Timeline, puts the date of the next passing of Nibiru at 3,200AD.

        I suppose it might be possible for an "advanced" civilization like the Anunnaki to speed their planet up, and then slow it down.
        Nancy and the Zetas origionally said that Nibiru arrived in the Inner Solar System in 2003.
        There were going to be continuous worldwide M10 earthquakes and 500mph winds during the Pole Shift here on Earth, as the tecktonic plates realign.
        Perhaps if nothing happens by 2020, Nancy will STFU.

    • Socrates

      Wild stuff!

      I believe tbat the core of the earth is being acted upon by something. The electro-magnetic shield is weakening. The magnetic north is moving towards Siberia. Isostatic readjustment and tectonic plate movements generate electro-magnetic and ionic charges that interact with the topospheric layers of the atmosphere. Cosmic radiation is entering south of the Arctic. Crustal plates are bending. Methanes releases are randomly distributed, contributing to rapid climate change. Ice sheets are melting at the north pole. The wobble ofthe earth is increasing slightly as the loads shift.

      • We Not They Finally

        We forget in the shuffle that the Sun has been rising two days later (after the all-dark winter) than it ALWAYS had in Greenland. Ergo the Earth is tilted at a slightly different angle. But "slight" does not mean not severe in consequence or not escalating in the wrong direction.

        About scary methane releases, cracks in the ozone layer and the like, the guy to look up is Dane Wigington on geogengineeringwatch.com. Interesting that he is NOT in denial about Fukushima, no. But he does think that we were heading past the tipping point even PRIOR to that.

    Perhaps there has been another attack on the Deep Underground Military Base (DUMB) highway system, like the one that caused the M5.2 EQ that damaged the Washington Monument.
    DUMB intro for those not in the know:

    Conspiracy theorists believe that elements of the US military take a dim view of the elites setting up their survival colony in underground cities tunneled all across the US, at public expense, in the name of Defense. They say that an underground highway was recently bombed and destroyed, causing the M5.2 EQ that hit near the Capitol. No, really. Google it.

    Maybe this event was another attack on the underground tunnel network, designed to carry qualified NYC elitists to cities built for them under the Denver Airport and western lands. 😉

    • Well jeeze…I imagine the elite might should consider shutting down their own fracking ventures (holdings) then. Wrecking their secret underground tunnels, lol!

  • jump-ball jump-ball

    The puzzling earthquake data I see is the totally unprecedented 140-plus 2 day MAMMOTH CA SWARM, which I've never seen happen in 15 years of watching. When the Mammoth supervolcano erupted long ago it sent rocks flying over such far away places as Nebraska, and I hope the man predicting a July 12th CA quake doesn't have some inside information on Mammoth that could 'flyover country' new meaning.

    • razzz razzz

      Mammoth is heavy monitored for activity. In geological time, the young cauldra of Long Valley was created by a volcano eruption second only to Yellowstone's. Pine trees die offs due to methane gas leaks are common to the area. The town of Mammoth is powered by a nearby geothermal plant situated over a young magma pocket. A few years ago during an earthquake the Mammoth ski mountain itself vented through an upper rock outcrop melting all the surrounding snow during a year of heavy snow pack.

      Notice how volcanoes are set back from large fault lines (San Andres in this case) as the friction of earth's movement creates tremendous heat that follows faults away from the main fault line tens of miles deep in the earth's crust to vent and flow the pressure buildups to the surface.


    • davidh7426 davidh7426

      Jump-ball… As of today it stands at 200 quakes in that swarm, and that's just over the last 48 hours.

    • davidh7426 davidh7426

      We'll know in soon enough if the 'man' was correct about the 12th, though I'd be more inclined to give it until the 14th.

      Either way, I have a bad feeling that he's correct about the CA quake, especially with the New Zealand and Alaska quakes, and just yesterday the Mexico quake, and now Mammoth Lake and Long Valley going 'jumpy'.

      If I lived in on that side of America, I'd be making serious plans, mapping routes etc, to get the hell out of there, as soon as possible.

    If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and is creating big booms underground… Then you have a fracking duck! (my opinion…YMMV).

    Or in Clintonville, WI… A fracking sand duck.

    30 miles from the big boomers heard underneath the sleepy town of Clintonville in 2012 is a fracking sand quarry in Appleton. They use explosives to crack open the deposits. Did it cause the booms? You decide.

    As for the fracking in New York state…it is a state divided just like all the rest of the fracking states. Advocates of jobs and cheap petroleum versus advocates of clean underground water sources.

    So far the frackers have won the major battles in this environmental war.

    We all want $4 or less gasoline. But at what cost to our health? The industry will keep fracking until one day the country's scientists will say to the POTUS…we are killing the current and future generations. Much like the 1963 strontium-90 revelations leading to the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.

    The other Damocles sword…The damage from nuclear bomb testing had been improving up until Chernobyl and Fukushima. So once again we face massive global strontium-90 contamination along with enough plutonium to potentially kill every carbon life form on the planet.

    Mother Earth will cleanse herself of fracking chemicals and radiation over time. But no humans will be around for that rebirth. Our tiny species will be long expunged by our own greed.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

      I read an editorial about banning fracking in Boulder County. It said that the action would cost the taxpayers billions because the oil and gas people will sue because they have the rights to the land.

      It seems that to stop the Cheney secret energy deals will take statewide or federal legislation. Who owns the land? The people, or the corporations? Many of the corporations are foreign owned, and they care least about the local population. It used to be that they gave value to human life in the US.

      Now foreigners (illegally) give huge amounts to finance elections in the US. (Auchi even bought Obama's house for him in Chicago). The foreign financiers have taken over the US. For example, the Russians are mining the uranium in Wyoming.

    Evidence of super-fast deep earthquake: Rare high-speed rupture off Russia and similar phenomena on shallow fault zones — ScienceDaily

    Scientists have discovered the first evidence that deep earthquakes, those breaking at more than 400 kilometers (250 miles) below Earth's surface, can rupture much faster than ordinary earthquakes. The finding gives seismologists new clues about the forces behind deep earthquakes as well as fast-breaking earthquakes that strike near the surface.
