well we all know it caused Katrina and the destruction of New Orleans
I thought gays did that.
Katrina, maybe, but wasn't the destruction/flooding in New Orleans caused by the levees failing because they were in bad shape?
And though Katrina was promoted as a CAT 4, it was only a CAT 3 at landfall...
Cue Led Zep...
Thanks. Now I'll be finger/foot drumming Bonham all day.
more like because they were never built properly, never properly inspected or maintained but let's ignore that gubmnt'l failure and create a reason for more gubmnt control
I haven't heard this, but good news. That is more than a "game changer" if it blows. More like a walkoff HR (Game OVER!!!).
There is a 7.0 earthquake about every 3 weeks on average.
The parts of the Chilean fault that didn't snap in the big one a few years ago are now under additional stress, which is why the quake last night wasn't a surprise.
If you want to worry about one in the US, the cascadia fault is the only large part of that circular chain (the ring of fire) that hasn't snapped yet. Chile was one end, the tsunami quake was another, the Japan quake that messed up the nuclear plant was another. Should Cascadia go it is capable of producing close to a 9.0 just off the coast of Seattle and Vancouver. That would mean not only quake damage but a massive tsunami too, in fact japan has records of large tsunamis from Cascadia quakes.
Then there's the New Madrid fault which produced 4 quakes over seven and some in the 8.0 range right in the Memphis/St louis area in 1811-12. I saw the odds of a quake over 7 hitting that region in the next 50 years as even money a while back.
Then Yellowstone, but there's actually a second supervolcano in the US which is also coming into its eruption cycle (at long valley/mammoth lake).
Plus the southern end of the San Andreas which is overdue.
Other than that, nothing to worry about!
Man did cause the levees breaking in New Orleans.
Man spent the money that for years had been allocated for levee repair in N.O. Leaving them in bad shape.
So the greed of man warming their pockets caused this great tragedy.
It's funny that some tourist come here to Maui and ask how long it takes to swim under the island to the other side . My favorite one was a guy asked me what elevation we were at in my front street store across from the sea wall . I looked at the ocean to my right and answered about 6 feet above sea level . He was offended by my answer . Considering Maui is around a 32,000 foot mountain extending from the sea floor and only 10,000 feet is above sea level , it makes me wonder how people think it would capsize or be able to swim underneath it .
Icequeen , the blood moon is amazing to see .Thanks for that info. I saw it red/orange around 7 years ago during an eclipse . It was mesmerizing . I'll be watching on the 15th .
We've had really, really bad Earth quakes in the past.... way before we discovered "fracking"... Just F.Y.I..
There are no earthquakes. All the climate change is causing false readings on the Richter scales.
Didn't you know? It is from the oil drilling and coal mining. Man-made impending disaster. The earth is cracking in half. It is called, "crustal change." The recent data shows it. It is worse than ever. Those stories about severe earthquakes before the data record are just old wives tales, uncivilized hearsay, and well, if it is not in the recorded data set and what we are experiencing is dramatically different recently, then the current scientific conclusion is that we are experiencing an unprecedented series of events. It certainly must be man-induced. Better start recycling now, because drilling holes for land fills is exasperating the crustal change problem. Now, about those restrictive environmental regs we need to pass....
nothing we can control

Make no mistake about it Michi, it's quickly moving up the leftist agenda list. They'll soon have their quack scientists on the government dole cooking some data.
All the earthquakes are God telling us he's angry at how immoral we've become, or that's what all the right-wingers are saying leastways.
How much fracking has been done off the coast of Chile?
I'm surprised you're still learning.... Lol.. j/k
Agreed, that is what all the right wingers say.
Do you actually believe this crap you write?
