Possible tsunami after 7.0 earthquake near Fiji

USGS REPORT – with MAP

Tsunami report says the threat window has passed.

This morning the NOAA Tsunami page had nothing recent listed while this should have been listed.  Also the USGS quake map page was down –

Methane Occurrence and Outbursts in Salt (and other) Mines: One More Reason that Deep Burial of Nuclear Waste is a Bad Idea

This relates to Lake FUBAR ….

” The US government’s apparently blinkered Blue Ribbon commission still has salt domes and salt beds on its hit list of places to stuff nuclear waste using the excuse that it was recommended in the 1950s. “

Mining Awareness +

The WIPP Deep Nuclear Waste Facility, which is supposed to be for US Defense related plutonium and other transuranic waste, but is being co-opted for foreign plutonium dumping, has continued to have problems with its ventilation system. It is effectively a salt mine. The US government’s apparently blinkered Blue Ribbon commission still has salt domes and salt beds on its hit list of places to stuff nuclear waste using the excuse that it was recommended in the 1950s. The below study discusses yet another reason that this is dangerous, besides the obvious that salt speeds up corrosion, and the less obvious instability of plutonium. This problem of mine gas would seemingly be even greater in old coal mining districts, such as Cumbria, where a deep nuclear waste facility has been proposed. Notice the CO2 occurence in Polish salt mines. Even where these are deep, properly mined, facilities, rather than burial…

Rivers Disappear into Sinkholes in Mexico

The WatchersTliapa and Tlacuapa rivers disappear into sinkholes, Mexico

After Atoyac River that disappeared when a huge sinkhole opened up on February 28, 2016, two more rivers in the mountains of the Mexican state of Veracruz are suffering the same fate. This brings the number of rivers in the region that have drained into subsoil in less than two months to three.

Assessing The New Madrid Fault After Worldwide Quake Fest Last Week

Feds: Risk of New Madrid 2016 quake increases

“WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal scientists say the chance of damaging earthquakes hitting east of the Rockies has increased significantly, much of it a man-made byproduct of drilling for energy. Oklahoma now has a 1 in 8 chance of damaging quakes in 2016, surpassing California as the state with the highest probability…”

Fort Campbell – PrepareAthon: Ready for any emergency

“Garrison personnel, units and organizations from across the Fort Campbell community conducted a training exercise Wednesday to practice responding to a severe weather event. The training scenarios tested individuals and organizations on their ability to react to a tornado hitting the installation.

The exercise was part of Fort Campbell’s continuous training on its emergency response plans for a large number of contingencies and the training marks Fort Campbell’s participation in America’s PrepareAthon, a nationwide campaign for increased community preparedness and resilience. . . .”

. . . “Tornadoes are the No. 1 thing we prepare for, but we always prepare for winter weather as well,” Fangman said. “We do an exercise every year on winter storms. We prepare for flash floods and flooding, wildfires, earthquakes – being this close to the New Madrid fault line we could be impacted – those are the natural disasters we prepare for.” . . .

♦  Is this “PrepareAthon” another rehearsal for marshal law disguised as disaster “help”?  Recall after Katrina the soldiers pointed guns at nearby helpers who arrived with food and blankets and forced them to turn around. They herded the helpless population onto overpasses without drinking water and, at gunpoint, into the horrific no-water-no-electricity Superdome.

(4-18) The largest earthquakes in Indiana history

“INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana is typically safe from earthquake activity like the devastation in Ecuador or the major damage in Japan, but the state has seen its share of events that caused damage along the New Madrid fault line.
Here’s a look at the most significant earthquakes in recorded Indiana history, according to the U.S. Geological Survey . . . “

Bicyclists from all over the country will be heading to Kennett again this summer. The Ride the Fault Line tour is coming back to town June 12.
