Series of quakes hit off Japan disaster zone, AFP, September 16, 2011:

A strong 6.6-magnitude undersea quake and a series of aftershocks hit off the coast of Japan’s Honshu island Saturday, not far from the area ravaged by a huge March quake and tsunami, geologists said.

The first earthquake was followed by two smaller tremors and then a fourth, 6.2-magnitude quake, but there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties, and no widespread tsunami warning. [...]

    • One should bear in mind: Radiation has many of these symptoms.

      This article is important to take note of when analyzing deaths.

      The living conditions in these prefectures, is nuclear…

      Radiation may be eating away at peoples immune systems. A normal cold can probably kill now. Were being attacked inside and outside our bodies cell chemistry daily.

      We here on enenews; need to carefully monitor all deaths and ‘hypothetically attribute’ radiation poisoning to all cases. As every person in japan has experienced small if not, large dosage’s of radiotoxins.

      If a large number of people are dieing in any area / prefecture.
      Believe me it ‘Is’ something to take note of.

  • Hello again enenews. I’ve been lurking since day 1. Always knew nuclear death was the fate of mankind, but how poetic is it that the end of the world was brought about by corporate negligence and greed rather than nuclear war? It’s a fitting end. I’m sure we’ll see the countries flinging nukes at each other now. Why not?

    I wonder if all these subsequent quakes are causing liquefaction and allowing the molten corium to penetrate deeper into the earth’s crust? I can’t wait to see the size of the forthcoming steam explosion.

      This wont be the end of the world. First of all, there wont be an “end of the world”. Second, if the world didn’t get bombed with radiation in March and April, we probably wont. I mean 3-4 melt downs, exploding reactors, china syndrome, spent pools../

      Naturally Japan is in trouble, then distant lands like, Oregon, Washington, NorCal, etc. could have mild issues, but “the world”. I still don’t see it. It aint over till the fat lady sings. Don’t give up on the middle class blue collar people, who dominate this world in the trillions.

      As for these quakes being near Fukushima, I guess 300 miles away could be considered ‘near’, but nothing like 12 miles away thats for sure.

        Hi Pg,

        I agree that the world will be around.

        I believe that eventually (who knows when or how), the earth will be cleansed with fire, due to the damage that the people have caused.
        The earth will then re-grow again.

        As for the people..With all that we are doing to this earth, I believe we are in trouble. Look at what we are doing to the oceans, air, soil, and so on.

        This radiation has and will continue to travel contaminating through the jet stream.

        There is more ocean than land, if we keep damaging the oceans, we are in trouble.

        Radiation and toxins are not good for us, or for our environment.

        That lady is clearing her throat and alerting us, I agree with dharmasyd, we better listen carefully.

          I do believe Fukushima has already impacted that whole area.

          With the on going layers to Canada, US, and Mexico I believe we are in big trouble also.

          As for the rest of the world. With this very large disaster, I think it will eventually effect them, how can it not?
          However, I’m not sure it will be to the same degree?

          Earth is changing, the next disaster that causes a Nuclear Plant to go off, just might effect the rest of the people.

      • There will be an end to earth – guaranteed – in about 4 to 5 billion years from now.

        After a low mass star like the Sun exhausts the supply of hydrogen in its core, there is no longer any source of heat to support the core against gravity. Hydrogen burning continues in a shell around the core and the star evolves into a red giant. When the Sun becomes a red giant, its atmosphere will envelope the Earth and our planet will be consumed in a fiery death.

        Meanwhile, the core of the star collapses under gravity’s pull until it reaches a high enough density to start burning helium to carbon. The helium burning phase will last about 100 million years, until the helium is exhausted in the core and the star becomes a red supergiant. At this stage, the Sun will have an outer envelope extending out towards Jupiter. During this brief phase of its existence, which lasts only a few tens of thousands of years, the Sun will lose mass in a powerful wind. Eventually, the Sun will lose all of the mass in its envelope and leave behind a hot core of carbon embedded in a nebula of expelled gas. Radiation from this hot core will ionize the nebula, producing a striking “planetary nebula”, much like the nebulae seen around the remnants of other stars.

        The carbon core will eventually cool and become a white dwarf, the dense dim remnant of a once bright star.

But I never really want to see it.

        They lie to themselves is an excellent point, rarely realized.

        Many people presume that every nuclear insider is just plain evil, hating all of mankind and willingly sacrificing it upon the altar of profit. While this is true of some, the truth is the majority of nuclear sympathizers BELIEVE THEIR PROPAGANDA.

        This is what makes it such an insidious and difficult problem. Many fervently support nuclear not because of greed or hatred, but because they truly believe the noxious lies foisted upon them, from workers to mid level management, even some high level people. And once that belief is instilled, it’s a devil of a time to see them re-open their minds. Especially when their livelihood also depends upon it.

        I’m not sympathizing (as anyone who reads my posts knows). I’m just pointing out the sheer pervasiveness of a whole culture of thought.

      The reason I mention Kashiwazaki Kariwa is because they’ve had a meltdown there, without obvious containment breech because they sit almost directly atop yet another convergent plate boundary fault in Japan, different from the one that caused the 3/11-related foreshocks, main Tohoku quake, and the hundreds or thousands of aftershocks since. On July 16, 2007, Kashiwazaki Kariwa had a 6.8 quake on this fault (KK operator claimed no foreknowledge of the fault involved lol), which represented twice the ground motion/acceleration that the plant could actually handle. This KK quake and definitely resulting core damage at one of her reactors is much more blacked out news wise than the FukuDai situation, so far. I definitely didn’t know about it before my research of literature done in response to 311. I hope this helps.

    Is the implicit idea that the “china syndrome” condition may have caused the earthquake?

    Or is it merely that ongoing earthquakes are going to exacerbate a more localized problem of melted corium (china syndrome localized)?

      Hey majia…
      Being so Heavy and Hot, the corium will use every opportunity
      to trend downward…also providing the melt-lubrication heat
      to pass on down with every little shake, quiver, tremor, cracking
      helping it go. It’s possible that it (corium torch) has found the
      path-of-least-resistance along fault lines, and moved there,
      possibly lube-ing up those rocks.
      So, you are right on both causal-links contributing to reality!

        I would like to add to that. The New Madrid runs not only along the Mighty Mississippi River, but even into the Gulf of Mexico.

        Where the Macondo Well was drilled was in a plate that has to do with the New Madrid.

        I think the leaking of late, may well have to do with the different plates that I have read at http://www.thewathcers.com are moving. They drilled in an area that should have never been allowed. IMHO
        There has been a trend in the last year+ , where these plates seem to be moving, due to lunar influences.

        We are still ruled by the planetary influences we live in. We aren’t ‘special’. We are part of a much bigger Planetary Plan that we , even NASA ( with their ego/money/ lies ) thinks they ‘know so much about. LOL

      Dear Majia. I hope you and yours are well. It’s good to see your screen name again. I’m enjoying the Fall semester here aside from our collective irradiation and ever worsening fascism, from roughly 1981 to the present in the U.S. However, my two cents to help you understand earth quakes is that I don’t believe the corium have any effect on earth quakes. I just can’t see it. The quakes that generate the 6.0-9.0 level quakes in Japan are mainly “convergent plate boundary” quakes–these involve one continental or tectonic plate overriding or sub-ducting under each other. They do have some shallower strike-slip type faults nearby FukuDai, more like CA but nowhere near as large, mostly just localized and usually only several miles in length created secondarily to the thrust faulting. However, every quake we’ve heard about before and after 3/11 is from thrust-faulting. Some of these smaller local faults can generate quakes, as well or have in the past. However, the ones we hear about, thrust fault quakes and mega-quakes, are related to one tectonic plate riding over another tectonic plate.

      Or, you could look at it as the Pacific plate plunging beneath the North American, Asian or Philippines tectonic plates. There are four tectonic plates, total, abutting each other in Japan. It’s nearly the most stupid place on the planet to build commercial nuclear power plants. Maybe building a Kashiwazaki Kariwa (world’s largest nuke plant across Honshu from FukuDai) would be more carelessly sited if it were built on an ice island in the lake where the Tambora volcano is in northern Sumatra. Tambora is a geologic hotspot and mega-volcano location on an island, Sumatra, that also with some regularity otherwise has volcanism and mega-earthquakes such as what caused the mega-tsunami of Christmas 2004. The hot-spot volcano there went off most spectacularly about the time of the Homo sapiens sapiens (humans) genetic narrowing to 6000-7000 individuals some 75,000 years ago with less eventful explosions as recently as several hundred years ago or even more recently, I believe and some recent smoking around the edges, which may just be nothing, fingers crossed.

      It seems far-fetched to me to attribute the earthquakes to melting coriums. I think it much more likely that any earthquake contributes to the de-stabilization of all the plant equipment, and to perhaps increasing or decreasing pressures on what ever part of the coriums has by now burrowed past the concrete in the basement and into the ground below. I take it these things take a very long time to melt downwards. The nuke authorities have lied to us about almost everything so far; I do not expect that to change.

      I would guess just normal aftershocks. After all, it was a realy big earthquake. I should have lots of strong aftershocks. Timing with a quake as large as they had for the aftershocks would be very hard to predict. We have had some large ones already.

      Elenin,

      I agree. We are under sun flares, the ‘comet’ elenin, and so called Nibiru (?) and numerous other planitary events.

      Japan is in the Ring of Fire. It seems to be very active now. The New Madrid is over due, hence the US gov ( which I’m not fond of any longer ) has done exercises around and people are going ballistic about. This, in that particular instance, is to me, damage control.

      Historically the New Madrid is 10 yrs. over due. I do believe that fracking has an influence on this. I have seen , in my searching, that where they frack , close to a fault line has caused mini-quakes. I know this is true in Ark.
      When a groug got togehter and fought town hall and got them to stop it, my friends in Hot Springs stopped having pictures falling off walls and windows shake ever few days.

      just my 2 cents worth. I do not pretend to be an athority on anything. I don’t search the web for any and every link to feed my ego.

      I observe, read, and speak. Simple logic?

    I was just at you blog ?? and apologized for any influence I had ( If any ) on the article at VT.

    I have been watching the ‘ring of fire’ volcano scenerio and there have been alot of them there.

    I do not believe ( given little REAL schooling on this ) that ‘china syndrome’ could be a factor.

    We ALL have to remember that this is a totallly new concept/ situation. Sure, you can go and post hundreds of articles of ‘past circumstances’ , recorded history, etc. BUT, to me, common sense tells a person that this is UNIQUE.

    So, my personal answer is NO. I don’t think this is the cause of the quake. There have been numerous quakes since and there will continue to be. We are talking about a quake area.

    I read an article just yesterday about an archeologist that said he had found recent info concerning that that tsunami was not ‘historical’ . There had been others as bad or worse in the long history of Earth.

    Best I can do, and unlike others here, I don’t pretend to ‘know it all’, but I am gifted with common sense, which over 64 yrs. of life has proven to give me insight that medicine, and other ‘so called sciences’ have proven wrong.

    JMHO, OK? :)

        There are good things happening (believe it or not).

        Read James Grunig and developments in communication – i.e. two-way symmetrical rather than the Ministry of Truth model (one-way asymmetrical).

        Think of Arab Spring, Twitter and direct democracy (rather than fake representative kleptocracy).

        Even Obama is into it (called “open government”). The conversation between people and government (& people-corporation) is being equalized, balanced out, for the good of both. Skeptics call it idealistic, but, the future is written, and the signs are there.

        It’s happening because large organizations have no choice now but to listen to us – for their own survival.

    O148 appears to be a reference to one of the “polyvalent 4″ series of antisera used to identify strains of E. Coli bacteria.

    From my limited medical training in the area of infections diseases, I can tell you that food poisoning from E. Coli is like poisoning by chemical toxins (produced by the bacteria), so someone really ill from chronic raidation exposure (i.e. immunocompromised) will have a very similar acute illness reaction to the toxins as would a fit young athlete from the Southern Hemisphere. E.g Samantha Stosur, the Aussie who just won the US Open womens tennis final.

    So did this affect Fukushima? What are the chances this could cause the Spent Fule Pool at reactor 4 to fall. Arnie was quite worried about that at one time.


    Report comment

    • The earthquakes at Fukushima today were expected because of the rainfall spite in India-see the website imd.gov.in for the daily time series of all India rains. The spike on16 September 2011 was way higher- more than twice as high as the average for the day. This spike on top of the water mass contents behind the dams at the last 15 days of the monsoon and the changes in the high stress level of the rocks induced by the daily massive changes in dam contents at the fab end of the monsoons rival the tectonic forces or the cosmic forces and will trigger a major or great quake in the Pacific Ring of Fire before the monsoon has played out. Note also that because of the surges in daily rainfall being much greater than normal and the relentless increases in new dam capacity have caused the dams to exert such great water moments on the Antarctic rocks that hotspot clusters have occurred in this monsoon of 2011
      On 25th August and again on 9th September. These are significant fulcra to the water moments and their surges and result in melting of the ice by heat produced by friction. For rigid robust correlations which are scientifically meaningful between rainfall,hotspots,dam capacity changes and earthquakes as well as the seismic moment magnitudes see http://glaringlacuna.blogspot.com and other dam related urls there.

        38.322 142.369 24.4 NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN
        Update time = Wed Mar 9 16:16:24 UTC 2011
        The 2nd February 2011 prediction included the 140-160 longitude band for the major earthquake that occurred today:
        7.2 2011/03/09 02:45:18
        38.510 142.792 14.1 NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN
        It might have affected nuclear stations near the epicenter which are:
        FUKUSHIMA-DAIICHI (194km), ONAGAWA (112km).
        However we should await further developments in March- possibility of other such earthquakes, because of the tremendous surges in dam water pressures generated at the centers of gravity of water masses behind dams in heavily dammed regions. Watch out for news!

        The following information three days after the Mar. 11 Japan earthquake is quoted from:
        predicting earthquakes

        “Update time = Mon Mar 14 15:14:01 UTC 2011
        “There has been a sudden jump in the worldwide number of hotspots from 7589 on the 13th morning to 11966 on the 14th morning. This signifies a surge in worldwide dam contents- a huge sledge hammer effect at the centers of gravity of heavily dammed regions, notably in Asia. This is evident in the increase in the number of hotspots by an order of magnitude in the 75 to 95,95 to 105 and 105 to 115 longitude bands. There is also an ominous vanishing of hotspots in the Mexico to Haiti region. This means a strong to major earthquake may occur in the coming days in the Mexico to Haiti region or in Southern USA in the East or in the Western Ghats Region of India or in the longitude bands indicated above. Japan region may also have to be included in this prediction-for a major earthquake in the coming days.”

        • As usual when you(Anne) take up anything for study it is thorough and your research goes to the roots and aims at the truth. Thanks for a real forensic cut into the events leading to the March 11 2011 earthquake in connection with the events surrounding Fukushima and related issues. Encouraged by your thoroughgoing no holds barred approach I will dig as deep as I must into all these matters. Thanks a million for your trail blazer. Humanity needs such infallibility in forbidding the propagation of error.

    sad how gullible you all are. i don’t believe a damn thing tepco says UNLESS they have solid evidence of what they are trying to prove, and i damn sure don’t believe some random internet armchair expert…BUT, in the case of logic, i would RATHER believe a actual expert over some internet ‘genius’, but to those of you ‘in the know’ they are all ‘shills’. not everybody is in on this, ‘agenda’, but you let the paranoia get the best of you so you actually believe that. sad, kind of degrades this site for what it is really. i really wish the admin would actually moderate more to separate the b.s. from the facts, but i guess that’s hard when people know how to sugar coat their assumptions with big words and random numbers to make it seem as if the assumption is a actual fact.

        what can i contribute? my assumption on what is happening? why bother? i try to visit this site just for info, i’m not in to the whole discussion thing, what good does that do? i don’t make assumptions based on broken/unpractical logic like some of you do, nor will i waste my time giving you guys my view on what i think is going on. i don’t want you to see what i post and be like ‘shill government nuclear shill blah blah blah’. now that, THAT gets old.

            i shared my opinions the first day here, but it seems like so many of you already know what’s going on, there’s no point in giving an alternate explanation. if it’s against what YOU think, you will say something to degrade it, and make it seem impractical, when it is nothing but a hypothesis, based on the same evidence we all are forced to work with. i am on the same ‘fuku tepco’ boat, like f*ck you tepco. i hope someday the japanese stand up and kill those bastards.

          Hi irradiated california,

          Some people here give great information, some people give their views, and sometimes we even rant.

          Even though we would like everyone to agree with us, that’s not going to happen.

          Once in awhile I will post, it’s nothing a genius would type, and I haven’t been thrown out yet. lol..

    TEPCO OFFICIAL SAYS: ” PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURES INSIDE OF REACTOR 1 AT FUKUSHIMA DAIICHI EXCEEDED DESIGN LIMIT.

    TEPCO said Friday most of the detectors lying below the pressure vessel at the No. 1 reactor of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant that check the condition of the control rods have been found damaged.

    The damage – mostly burnt wiring or electrical shortages – is believed to have been caused by the intense heat in the wake of a core meltdown.

    The utility conducted current tests on the detectors, which each cover 97 control rods, and found only one detector functioned normally, it said.
