Chile, NZ, then Japan.  Every quadrant in the Ring of Fire hit with a devastating  earthquake except one.  If you live on the west coast of North America you ought to be  worried.  Nature loves symmetry.     


'Super moon' on the horizon for Saturday

If the moon looks extra big, bright and almost close enough to touch March 19, it's not just your imagination.

That's the day a "super moon," the fullest of the year, is set to appear in the sky. This year's will be the closest to Earth in 18 years, astronomers say.

Some believe a super moon can result in severe storms or earthquakes.,0,4460991.story

"The aftershocks will likely include at least one measuring 8 and 10 of magnitude 7, JPL geophysicist Andrea Donnellan said."

There's nothing unusual or supernatural in predicting the future.

  True.... a little anecdote, was thinking of taking advantage on deals for Tokyo trip about 3 weeks ago. It was a great deal, hotel + airfare for 2 for $2200... Glad I decided not to! Was also toying with a trip to Vancouver Island this summer, I think I will hold off for a bit...

As one that lives within a few miles of the San Andreas and crosses it frequently on the I-15 through the Cajon Pass, having the shift of Japan by eight feet closer to my backyard makes me wonder when the stress will pop.

If that side of the plate moved that much, surely there had to be at least a couple inches movement on the westward side.

I"m in the High Desert, North of the San Bernardino mountains.  I expect a similar magnitude earthquake here would pretty much turn the sand over...with everything buried underneath.

And our "craftsman" built houses would be kindling in the first minute.  I'm astonished at the housing that withstood that earthquake in Japan (only to be wiped out by the tsunami).  Nothing like a Japanese product for durability.

National Geographic did a new show last night talking about a super quake hitting the USA - P NW or New Madrid - both are due plus new Madrid last blew in 1811- super moon a coming plus a solstice....on 3-20 :) silver bitchez

This morning some talking head on CNBC was discussing just in time delivery issues in Japan. He was saying that if the problems get worse in Japan it will start affecting companies in countries around the world that depend upon Japan for many JiT components. Even though there is plenty of competition out there and even some slack in manufacturing it can't all be switched over via a phone call in two days.

So much for the global village.

If they get the time. Exponential growth in money supply mixed with collapse in the supply of goods may create massive inflation. Any increase in intrest rate now is going to kill the demand side of the economy. Noone is going to be dumb enough to risk capital investments in this climate.

k-gate, it's an equinox, not a solstice, but neither matter as much as lunar distance from earth in terms of tidal forces.  Is that what you meant by Super Moon?  I have to look it up now....yep, 221,712 miles on March 20, about 7.6% closer than average.(courtesy Wolfram Alpha)

Pacific Northwest makes more sense - friend of mine on the island of Hawaii reported a quake hours after the the Japan quake, which ironically may have helped mitigate the tsunami's impact there.

Last major PWN quake,  at magnitude 7.1, was in 2001, near where I lived at the time in Olympia. The faultline slippage likely sent energy impulses across the planet, very likely destabilizing the NA plate's junctions along the Juan de Fuca plate. It wouldn't be at all surprising for a major quake to hit JdF or along the Cascadia boundaries. And of course, Seattle itself is basically built on top of a mud flat.

"Seattle itself is basically built on top of a mud flat."

Not all of it, just parts, mostly near the water. There are lots of hilly spots that aren't liable to liquifaction effects. The local newspaper printed a map the last time there was a quake showing the relative riskiness of all parts of the city--most of it wasn't particularly risky.

The risk numbers posted for the US have indicated that a section of San Andreas fault is the probability champ.  The New Madrid is due also but population is not as concentrated in the danger zone, 

IMO, the Japanese will deal with this better than the Russians.  Remediation of this kind of accident will require patience, technical skill and sacrifice.  Since they are more or less a large extended single tribe, the will to sacrifice will be a factor.

Anyone here know personally a Japanise native?  I have known two.  Both were organized, disciplined and focused on the work that needs to be done.  They don't stop.   One lady was the realtor that handled the sale of our big house and helped location of the Condo we now live in closing two months before she died of cancer that she had said not a word about.

Don't underestimate them.

their blatant spiritualism crushes me.  which probably disturbs you.  having said that "there are non-recoverable realities."  a "sucks to be you" understanding of things perhaps which "the sacrificing side of the USA has immediately responded to."  that says to me "this be the 2% of the world economy that impacts the other 90%"--but we shall see.  the obvious "mere character" of these people has been duly observed by the world.  since we are talking God however "no good deed goes unpunished."  and isn't that what we really see?

I just bought a lot of canned tuna & herring. Best before 2014 (at least).

If they dump three nuclear cores into the ocean, or even just their radiation goes into the ocean, I wouldn't eat seafood anymore.

German TV just started to discuss about tuna and radiation.

328 MILLION cubic miles .... that's the ocean.   That's a LOT of radiation shielding when you consider that uranium, cesium and plutonium are going to SINK. 

Bear that in mind.
