    Concerns of "Major" West Coast Earthquake Growing as San Andreas, Melones and Elsinor

    Concerns of "Major" West Coast Earthquake Growing as San Andreas, Melones and Elsinore Faults Spew More Carbon Monoxide Post by Newsroom - Feb 29, 2016

    San Andreas Fault, California File Photo

    Beginning on February 26, NASA satellites in space began detecting staggeringly large emissions of Carbon Monoxide (CO) gas along the west coast, from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, all the way south to San Diego, CA. As evidenced by the satellite image below, the emissions were far too big, too highly concentrated and covered too vast an area to be man-made. On the satellite image below, the areas in black, purple and brownish-orange show the magnitude of the emission; it was utterly massive!

    Scientists quickly determined that the CO was coming up out of the earth; being expelled out through seismic faults. What this means is the earth began moving in such a way on February 26, that pressure along the fault lines became so great, it expelled massive amounts of naturally-occurring carbon monoxide gas from underground. In fact, the proximity of the CO emissions directly aligns with what are known as the Monterey Formations, which are shale formations holding oil and gas! The gas is contained within the shale rock, but is being squeezed so hard, the gas is being forced out. That's a LOT of pressure to squeeze gas out, from inside rock!

    When pressure builds up like this, it is not hard to understand that something has to "give" and when it does, there's an earthquake. That's why this emission of Carbon Monoxide is a warning sign of an impending, LARGE earthquake.
    The last time an emission of Carbon Monoxide on this scale took place, was a week prior to the Gujarat Earthquake which devastated India; killing twenty thousand people and destroying 400,000 homes when the 7.6 quake struck in Jan. 2001.
    Another quake, far far worse in China in 1978, had similar gas emissions, detailed below . . .

    Emission Easing, But Still Spewing in Several Specific Areas

    After the initial emission of CO on February 26 into the 27th , winds began to dissipate the CO and carry it eastward, thinning it out as it traveled. Here is the satellite image from 12:00 Noon eastern US Time today (29 Feb 2016):

    This easing of emissions can mean one of two things:
    1) The pressure has receded and the danger is less, OR;
    2) The pressure squeezed almost all the CO out and there's simply not much left to push out; meaning the quake danger could still exist or be growing!
    The simple fact is, we just don't know which is the correct answer, and the scientific knowledge does not yet exist to find out!
    As you may notice, while the initial satellite image above clearly showed gas being emitted from the Cascadia Subduction Zone off the coast of Vancouver, BC as well as Washington and Oregon in the US, all the way down to San Diego, CA, three specific areas continue to spew large amounts of Carbon Monoxide to this day. These areas directly coincide with three major seismic faults: The San Andreas Fault, The Melones Fault and the Elsinore Fault as illustrated on the map below:

    Below is today's satellite image of the faults still emitting CO as shown in the red circled areas below:

    The fact that some of this CO is emanating from the Melones Fault Zone is problematic. There is no Monterey Formation there; it abuts the Sierra Nevada Mountains. So for a fault this far inland to be emitting CO while faults farther to the west (San Andreas) and south (Elsinore) are also exhibiting this same activity, gives an indication of the utterly massive amount of tectonic pressure taking place and the ENORMOUS area being affected by this tectonic stress.
    If history is any indication of future activity, then, as took place in India in 2001, at some point within the next six or seven days (max) - there may be a **** MAJOR **** earthquake along one or more of these fault lines. If we doubt that such gas emissions may be related to earth quakes, and think perhaps the 2001 quake in Gujarat, India was a mere coincidence, bear in mind that India was not the only major quake where gas emmissions took place in advance.


    No other earthquake in the 20th century was as catastrophic or claimed as many lives as that which struck the city of Tangshan in Northern China on July 28, 1976.
    Tangshan, a thriving industrial city in Hebei Province is located about 95 miles east and slightly south of Beijing, and about 280 miles southwest of Haicheng (Liaoning Province) - where in February 1975 another very destructive earthquake had occurred.
    Although the region had experienced moderate seismic activity in the past, there were no foreshocks and no advance warning.

    Date and Time of Origin: July 28, 1976 at 19:42:53.8 UTC (local date and time: July 28, 1976, 03:42).
    Epicenter: The earthquake occurred near the coast, in Tangshan in the Hebei Province of northeastern China. Its epicenter was at 39.60° N 118.20° E, about 140 kilometers southeast of Beijing.
    Magnitude: Originally reported as 7.8, later revised to Mw 7.6
    Focal Depth: Shallow, 15 kilometers
    There were no foreshocks or clear precursory phenomena prior to the Tangshan earthquake - as there had been in other earthquake stricken areas of China. However, more than half a month earlier there had been a series of abnormal sign observed in the regions of Beijing, Tianjin, Tangshan, Bohai and Zhangjiakou. Based on such signs the State Seismological Bureau had correctly concluded that a significant earthquake could be expected between July 22, 1976 and August 5. However, the precursory phenomena differed from those of other earthquakes. Because of the scattered distribution of the signals, there was no determination of the location where this earthquake would strike.

    Just prior to the earthquake, many unusual phenomena were observed in the immediate Tangshan region. There were observations of large amplitude variations of groundwater level and of strange animal behavior. As early as July 12, it was reported that gas began to discharge from a well in a village. On July 25 and 26, this discharge increased. The day before the earthquake, well water at another village, reportedly rose and fell three times and other wells showed signs of cracking of their lining. . . (Source Here)
    Death Toll - Within seconds after the thousands of people lost their lives or were trapped in debris. The actual death toll from this earthquake may never been known with certainty. According to official government accounts the earthquake killed 242,769 people and severely injured another 169,851. However, based on the density of the population and the extent of destruction, these figures have been disputed. At the time Tangshan had 1.6 million inhabitants. Since the earthquake destroyed ninety three percent of all residential buildings, the death toll was estimated to be three times greater than what was reported - ranging from 655,000 to 779,000 people.


    This article is not a "prediction" or some sick Hoax. It is a logical assessment of the facts as they are known, using data sources which are reputable, which form the basis for a logical conclusion. Quite simply, we have compiled this information and ask you, the reader, to apply common sense.
    We must emphasize that, at present, modern science CANNOT accurately predict an earthquake. We certainly do not claim to be able to do so and are NOT doing so!
    Having said that, it is also undisputed that the last time this type of CO emission took place, twenty thousand people were killed by a magnitude 7.6 earthquake in India and the time before that, atr least 242,000 were killed in a quake in China where gas was emanating days in advance.
    Therefore, it seems prudent to us, to publish this information so people throughout California can decide for themselves if emergency preparations are necessary.


    Put fuel in your car gas tank and keep it topped-off for a week in case evacuation becomes necessary. You don't want to wait until a quake hits before trying to get fuel - which will be almost impossible to obtain if disaster strikes.
    Have a supply of fresh water to drink and cook with for fourteen days. (Never mind for washing or flushing toilets - we mean water for SURVIVAL). Each human being requires six to eight (8 ounce) glasses of water per day. That's 1/2 gallon per person, per day
    Have a small, gravity-fed water filter is important too, in case you have to get water from a local lake or stream. Filter it first! With a water filter, you'll need a storage bucket or containers to store the water you filter. So have a clean bucket or clean containers on-hand.
    Have canned (soups/meats) or dried foods (rice/grains) that will not spoil in the absence of electricity - and a MANUAL CAN OPENER to access that food.
    Have basic emergency gear like battery operated flashlights and radios with spare batteries.
    Have spare clothing to keep warm and dry if your home is ruined and you are forced to be outside for awhile.
    Perhaps an emergency electrical source like a small generator to provide limited electricity, with the lawful, safe, amount of properly containerized and stored FUEL to supply that generator.
    Those of you with outdoor propane gas grills, might want to make sure the propane tank is full or get a spare for cooking.
    Of course, having some first aid supplies is a good idea to treat any cuts or bruises or to help someone seriously hurt by a quake.
    Have a supply of medications that you may routinely take --- and may need to rely upon for a week or two -- until supply chains can be brought back online after a major disaster.
    Much of this stuff can be packed into a "go bag" for each member of your family. Put the essential in each bag, make sure everyone knows where each bag is, and have a plan to grab the bag and meet at a particular place inside our outside your home if a quake hits.
    We cannot say for certain that a major earthquake is going to strike. We can say that when this type of massive CO release has taken place, there was a major, deadly earthquake within a week.

    The choice is completely yours as to how to use (or ignore) this information. One thing is certain: THERE IS NO NEED TO PANIC. But there may very well be a need to plan, AND PLAN FAST.
    We urge you to plan, now. If the past is any indication of the future, within about six or seven days, we will all know.

    Stop trying to cheer me up. All those progressives on the west coast will be around forever and they breed like rabbits.

    the CO is worth finding out more about.

    But not-so-super station 95 is using a picture of Teahupoo, Tahiti ... in an article about Lake Erie.
    Retired Director Morris Waxler says the FDA did not do their job for 15 years - and is not now.
