The earth will move with great force in the next 10 days : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Earth quake next 10 days either Argentina, Mexico , California or Thailand. It will be devastaing. About 5 or 6 times a year I get this feeling that I just cannot get over. I woke up today with it. It's just been recent years that I have been able to zone in on location. This has nothing to do with Turkey I didn't feel that one. As it gets closer I will be able to zone in on location and post.

No offense intended here. You say you didn't feel the quake in Turkey, which was HUGE(7.5). Then you tell us that this "Future Quake" that you say is coming could be in Thailand?

Isn't Thailand as far or farther than Turkey?!? Am I to deduce from that that the quake you're feeling is going to be even BIGGER(8-10), or were you just not "tuned in" to Turkey?

I am not putting words into St. Francis' mouth here, for starters.

Stanford Univ some years ago, as part of a study of "earthquake precursors as shown in anomalous animal behavior" actually found that some people are quite quake-sensitive.

Symptoms experienced by these individuals included headaches, heart-palpitations, flu-like complaints, joint/bone pain, etc -- sort of low-level physical "not-feeling-right" stuff. Some people were able to pinpoint areas of the world which felt "quakey" to them; others were not. For a small handful of individuals tested, there was a high level of accuracy as to location and time (i.e. epicenter within a hundred miles, date within a few hours).

The Chinese have used both animal-behavior and human-symptoms as part of their earthquake warning system -- the great quake in Tangshan in 1975 had very few casualties because the Chinese evacuated an entire million-plus population from the city the day before -- and during the quake, many buildings toppled.

Anyway, on a more personal note, my mother was capable of "sensing" quakes beforehand -- though she seemed particularly attuned to Mexico and Central America. We lived in Los Angeles at the time. The info wasn't much use to us personally, and we didn't know anyone who we could warn, either -- kind of a frustrating situation.

Okay, let's make this interesting. Headaches, nightmares and feelings set aside.

I'm willing to say there will be no large (over 6.0) earthquake in any of your locations before the end of the month. $100.00 even odds.


BTW, if you get these feelings 5 or 6 times a year, where has the devastation been? I think we're under 1000 deaths world-wide the last year from earthquakes. We kill 30,000 a year on the roads of the good 'ol USA every year.

Cygnus XI Its really more of a burden than you can imagine. I don't know why I didn't feel the Quake in Turkey I seem to be more "tuned in" to the ring of fire than anything. I have predicted quakes in Italy and China but more with the ring of fire.

Randers not every quake is devastating I just said this one would be.

A few years ago I tried to "zone in" on these feelings and I nearly lost my mind. I was accurate but the toll on me was too much. Now I just accept it when it comes and try to manage. I have learned that I will be consumed by this till it happens.

Once again, not speaking for anybody here: I'd be pretty cautious with my $100, if I were you -- the areas mentioned are some of the most seismically active in the world and the possibility of a large quake at any one of them in the next couple weeks is actually pretty good.

Also, on the lack of numbers of people killed in quakes? Most large quakes happen in the ocean or in very lightly-populated areas -- say, Siberia or Alaska, or off the coast of South America way out in the ocean. And, if quakes happen in California or Japan, there are sufficient safety building standards that a lot of potential damage is mitigated. (Except, of course, if everything catches fire, such as in the San Francisco Marina fire, or the Kobe blaze with its 3000+ casualties.)

In general, severity of quakes can't be judged by number of deaths -- only by the magnitude.

-- Anita Evangelista (, August 17, 1999.

Well, being a Midwest born and raised I used to laugh at those nuts in California, Nevada would soon be beach front property. I now find myself here in the middle of ground zero. I have looked up most of the predictions both USGS types and "less scientific" and it is not clear to me how to predict these things. Here is a site that claims to "Have the system" FWIW. I would rather not have the quake here in San Jose, thank you very much.

August 1999 Update

PREDICTION FOR AUGUST 1999 For the Seismic Window of August 10-17, 1999 I am counting on the total solar eclipse of August 11th, and perigee of August 7th , which generate the highest monthly Golden Gate tides of 7.8 ft. on August 10th. I predict with 80% confidence:

1.3.5-6.5M quake within 140 miles (2-degrees) of San Jose 2.3.5-6.0M quake within 140 miles of Los Angeles 3.3.0-5.5M quake within Oregon and/or Washington 4.a major quake in the Pacific Ring of Fire.

For my Monthly Outright Seismic Speculation (MOSS prediction), I am looking for New England quake of at least 3.2M during the first half of August.

BTW, Check out the Global Seismic Monitor (great map) ...

The display is updated every 30 minutes using data from the National Earthquake Information Center. Earthquakes that have occurred within the last 24 hours are shown with red circles. The circles fade through orange to yellow within 15 days. After 15 days, the circles are replaced by light purple dots that remain on the map for five years. The distribution of seismicity over the past 5 years demonstrates how earthquakes define the boundaries of tectonic plates, and the relationship between topography and seismicity. The Earths shadow illustrates day/night and seasonal changes.

Click in the center of a circle and a list of all events will appear with the event you selected highlighted in yellow and events within 10 degrees of that event highlighted in white. Events that are 6.0 and greater are linked to special information pages that try to explain the where, how and why that particular event occurred. Click on an individual seismic observatory (shown by the purply colored triangles) to bring up a station information page.

Mar..thanks, I had a feeling that is what I would hear...not good news at all.

quick point regarding quakes and damage.

You don't need a massive, 7.8 quake to do catastrophic damage to an area. If the quake is shallow and shakes for a long period of time as in a few minutes (as opposed to this quake in Turkey which lasted 45 seconds) then a smaller magnitude, even "moderate" quake can do incredibly severe damage.

Also, it depends on where the fault line is running. If such a quake where to hit along a fault running through downtown Los Angeles with it's more dense populations, older buildings, etc. then this kind of quake could be amazingly distructive.

Having also been through the Northridge quake, but living over 30 miles away, I can tell you that I though I was going to DIE in that quake. It was the first time for me, an LA native, that a quake ever really scared me. I was dead asleep and all I remember was something picked up my house and dropped it. The lights went out. No power. I was over 30 miles freaking away.

Right after, the stores were jammed. There was a run on food, water and other items. Being prepared has it's advantages. People didn't want to sleep inside so they slept outside. In parks, in fields, in driveways, in backyards.

Mar...where abouts in the South Pacific?

We seem to be on the same earthquake wave-length...earlier today I was discussing the current solar flare activity with a friend and I expressed my concerns about a big quake hitting, but it's the *New Madrid fault* that has me concerned for some reason.

Of interest may be my friend's commentary regarding solar flares and earthquakes...

"These flares are pure hydrogen plasma -- very dense, super hot (like millions of megatons of continuously exploding H-Bombs.) Could just about ruin your whole day. If it hits China, the earthquakes would just about level the US.

"You gotta realize -- some of these flares contain just about as much mass as 1/3 of the moon. An "earth hit" would NOT be a trivial issue. Even a "near miss" would be both a scorcher, and would cause big earthquakes."

Moderate Quake Hits Northern Calif.

BOLINAS, Calif. (AP) -- A moderate earthquake rocked this Northern California town Tuesday evening, swaying office buildings in San Francisco and rattling homes 50 miles south in San Jose.

The quake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.0 happened at 6:06 p.m. near the San Andreas Fault about 10 miles southwest of San Rafael, said U.S. Geological Survey spokesman Dale Cox.

No injuries or damage were immediately reported.

Bolinas is about 20 miles north of San Francisco.

The quake rocked cars and made streetlights swing in San Francisco's Sunset district. Items fell off shelves and people 15 miles south of San Francisco said it felt like a heavy truck rumbling by.

``It was very quick, five or six seconds at the most,'' said Graham Church, an assistant manager at a San Francisco gas station. ``It was pretty sharp, pretty severe.''

In August of 1989 we were travelling, in Colorado. I had a dream that there had been two earthquakes that night. It was so real, I woke up and had to remind myself that we were in our RV parked at a state park. When I called my daughter at our home in California, she told me that there had been two moderate quakes that past night That September, of course, was the big Loma Prieta quake. In retrospect, the experts called the August quake a precurser. Sometimes I can "feel" an earthquake on the way, but I did not "feel" the 1989 quake. ( I was very busy with work, and not listening.)

In the 1989 quake, my husband was in his wood shop, and turned to look at the horizon. Ordinairly, the roof of our house lies below the crest of a little hill about 2 miles away. During the quake, my husband observed the roof of our house exchanging positions on the horizon with the hill - up and down up and down.

Historically, the Hayward Fault and the San Andreas take turns with big quakes, but we seem to be past the "window" for the Hayward to move after the Loma Prieta quake, which was on the San Andreas.

Just thoughts. Get your preps done, folks, and get that "bug out bag" done and ready to go. It's just like auto and home insurance. You never plan to be in an accident, but you get insurance anyway.

Personally, I think the Bolinas quake is a precurser. Just a gut feeling. We're overdue out here..

I don't think this California quake measures up to St.Francis's "prediction". Sorry

-- (doesn', August 18, 1999.

Sysman, how do you know St. Francis is a man? I bet the poster St. Francis is a woman. I think we need to give credit to a few other recents posters who have felt doom and gloom recently. We all scoffed at them, just like they have scoffed at us who believe that Y2K is going to be bad. However, to be so accurate as "no kidding," was is something to take notice to. Maybe "no kidding," will have a change of heart, I hope he/she gives another prediction.

August 28th will be the day to check back in to see if we're all still here and if the earth has moved in "great force." I'm marking my calendar and I'll post a thread to see if St. Francis (does he deserve to use that name?) is right on.

Cut me a break! Jeez, we are about to enter the 00's, not the 50's! Sorry, but I don't have the time to be PC and type he/she when I have something to say.

Maybe you think we should rewrite the constitution to be gender neutral???

"Bozo my dog told me so"? Just wonderin what Bozo has to say about Y2K, gold prices, availability of oil, stock picks (short or long) etc.... Maybe he just talks to you about the weather? Son of Sam's dog just told him to kill.

Why blame the prognosticator for earth quakes not predicted.

It's nobody's FAULT! (arrrgghhh, groan..)

"That September, of course, was the big Loma Prieta quake..."


October 17, 1989, 5:04 pm. I won't ever forget that date. Nor will you, if you ever live thru such a quake.

Excuse me,

"no kidding" posted his prediction after the quake was announced on TV. Throw the bum out!! St. Francis gets my vote.

I just asked my dog, what will happen 01/01/2000? She wagged her tail rapidly? What does this mean? Will there be mass chaos? Her tail was moving pretty fast....

St. Francis has basically said that this California quake was NOT the one. See this thread:

One For the Road

It means she has to go to the bathroom.

Perhaps Diane can post the time "no kidding," posted the prediction. Then anti-chain saw can eat dust. How about it Diane?

-- curious about the time (, August 18, 1999.

Diane posted the earthquake when it happened which was around 5:00 p.m. Go back and look at my prediction and how many threads were posted after me. I posted my prediction at least 4 hours prior to Diane posting that an earthqauke had occur. Anti-chainsaw, go cut some trees down. P.S. I am not a psychic, I just got lucky.

Will: You are was October! I thought of that after I left the board. For us, abutr 10-15 miles from the epicenter, the aftershocks were the worst. They went on for days and days and days. We HEARD it coming! It sounded like 10 semi trucks had pulled into the driveway and were downshifting their engines. And then the shaking started! thanks for correcting my error.
