Reno Quakes

Following a spate of quakes in Illinois, quake swarms occurred near Reno, Nevada. There were hundreds of small quakes with a number over magnitude 3 and the largest at 4.7. Frightened Reno residents wonder what might be coming next.

4.7 Quake Rocks Reno as Area's Seismic Activity Continues
April 26, 2008
Another earthquake struck the Reno area, dumping cans off shelves, knocking pictures off walls and sending rocks off hillsides. The U.S. Geological Survey reported the 4.7 magnitude temblor hit at 11:40 p.m. and was centered six miles west of Reno near Mogul, where a swarm of more than 100 quakes had rattled the area. The biggest of those was a 4.2 event. A 3.5 aftershock followed at 12:29 am, followed by at least 30 smaller ones, the USGS said. Local television stations reported the temblor cracked walls and broke lawn watering lines in the northwest Reno. It was the strongest quake to shake the city since hundreds of much smaller events have been recorded in the area since the end of February.

While quakes of this size do little more than fling items off shelves, it is dealing with the unknown that produces stress. Why Reno, and why now? The Zetas point out that their descriptions of the stress the N American continent has been placed under, and their predictions on what to expect, answer these questions. Quakes may strike suddenly, but they are not mysterious nor without an explanation if one understands the underlying seismology.

ZetaTalk Explanation 4/26/2008: We have spoken at great length about the stresses on the N American continent as the day of the pole shift approaches. It is being pulled diagonally, the New England area pulling east while Mexico is being held back, pulled toward the west. This tends to pull lands to the east of any fault line toward the northeast, while shifting lands to the west of any fault line toward the southwest. Since rock resists breaking, and friction exists along fault lines, this is hardly a smooth process. Weak points break, at first. Tension builds, accompanied by quake swarms which are, as we have explained, like a trembling before a snap. For the N American continent to adjust as it must during the rapid expansion of the Atlantic would require a major quake though the center of the continent, along the New Madrid Fault line, a widening of the St. Lawrence Seaway to the extent that it becomes a new inland bay filled with sea water, and a significant slide of land on either side of the San Andreas Fault line. Most of this adjustment will occur during the hour of the shift, but adjustments beforehand will significantly reshape the N American continent and will, as we have stated, precipitate emergencies within the US that will require that the troops in Iraq be brought home to attend to disasters in the homeland.

The first factor, thus, is the diagonal pull on the entire N American continent, which will first cause a shift in land along the Mississippi where land to the west drops toward the southwest and land to the east of the Mississippi pulls toward the northeast. This adjustment, of course, is along the New Madrid Fault line and associated fault lines.

ZetaTalk Explanation 4/26/2008: We have described a temporary bowing along the West Coast as the stress on the N American continent builds. Rather than tear along the New Madrid and related fault lines, Mexico at first is pulled toward the west, creating a bow that forms around California and stresses the rock along the West Coast all the way from the tip of Mexico to Alaska. The Crandall Canyon mine disaster in Utah was due to bowing stress, and the recent quakes near Reno, NV are likewise due to this same bowing stress. Note that the current spate of quakes near Reno are almost in an exact line from the California coast inland to the Crandall Canyon mine disaster east of Salt Lake City.

The second factor is a bowing along the West Coast, as though Alaska and the tip of Mexico were grabbed and pulled to the west while the center of the N American continent resisted changing shape. This bowing puts stress on the rock, particularly just to the east of the center of the bow.

ZetaTalk Explanation 4/26/2008: Take a board and cause it to bow, and watch the fractures. The compression side of the board certainly has compression stress, but the side of the board asked to stretch will start to fray and snap. As with the Utah mine disaster, the fraying and cracking are occurring to the east of a solid block of rock that is resisting any change. The mining accident in Utah in 2007, just to the east of the Salt Lake flats, is in rock that fractures more readily than the rigid Salt Lake flats to the west, which show no evidence of being affected during past pole shifts while the mountains on either side of these flats are rumpled. This is also the case with the recent Reno quakes. An examination of fault lines in California and Nevada show that the great inland valley of California has no fault lines. Like the Salt Lake Flats, this area retained water in the past that evaporated slowly, allowing a slow settlement that formed a very solid rock base. It does not bend or break. Thus, the bowing pressure in both cases is transferred to the more vulnerable rock to the east. In the case of the Reno quakes, they are taking the hit for the inland valley of California.

The third factor is the location of hard rock under former salt lakes, such as the Salt Flats in Utah or the inland Central Valley of California. Such rock resists fracturing and thus transfers the stress of the bow to the more vulnerable rock to the east.

The Reno, Nevada quakes are on a line drawn from the California coastline inland through Reno to the Crandall Canyon mine site in Utah, just east of Salt Lake City. Describing the cause of the Utah mine collapse, the Zetas at that time, fingered the bow as the cause. Once again, the Zetas have proved correct in their predictions on Earth changes.

ZetaTalk Explanation 8/11/2007: We are often asked how to determine safety in mountain building areas. Should one stand on a peak, or seek shelter in a valley? This is not a simplistic matter, and it is impossible to state general guidelines or even to give advice for a particular area. Hidden weak spots in the rock layers below might exist, undetectable even for ourselves, the Zetas, and suddenly allow a cave-in or shift. This is what occurred at the Crandall Canyon mine. The great salt flats in Utah show that they can withstand buckling, and have done so through several pole shifts. Mountain ranges in the western US are termed new mountains as their edges are sharp rock, showing recent fracturing. Rock layers that are compressed, in the compression zone, will do one of two things. If hard enough, they will remain as flat land, as the salt flats have done, forcing the compression onto the surrounding areas. If able to be fractured, the weak link, they will fracture and throw portions of the layer up on top of other parts of the layer, thus creating mountains from flat land. Crandall Canyon lies to the east of the Great Salt Lake Desert, and passes on any stress created due to the bowing of land in the southwest we have predicted to the mountains to the east of these salt flats. The weak link gives. The New Madrid Fault adjustments we have predicted to occur soon will not just suddenly happen one day. They will be preceded by minor adjustments in the stressed rock. Weak points snap, one after the other, until such minor adjustments no longer suffice. The bridge collapse in Minneapolis, and this mine cave-in, are just a small preview of what is to come!

The Zetas have predicted that the New Madrid Fault line and associated fault lines will adjust first, before the bow relaxes and the West Coast is allowed to adjust. They are speaking here of major quakes, not minor flurries that can occur on all fault lines.

ZetaTalk Explanation 4/26/2008: Where does all this lead? We have stated that major adjustments in the New Madrid and associated fault lines will occur before major adjustments along the San Andreas Fault occur. The bowing will force this, as at some point the rock will refuse to bow further and the stress along the weak points in the center of the continent will give. The fact that there IS a bow along the West Coast is what in fact prevents a major adjustment along the San Andreas until the New Madrid adjusts. This rock is in compression now, along a curve, and the slip slide of the San Andreas has more friction than usual to prevent any movement. Will more bowing stress appear? Undoubtedly. Clearly the line of stress has been drawn, between the Utah mining disaster and Reno, so that vulnerability can be computed.

Maryland Booms

A suburb in Maryland is dealing with a mystery. Booms and flashes in the middle of the night, seen by several residents and even recorded by the police. The mystery remains unresolved.

Police Make Headway In Baltimore Co. Mystery
April 28, 2008
For months, the Baltimore County Community Outreach officers have been investigating a bizarre phenomenon disturbing neighbors in an area of Pikesville near Beth Tfiloh Community School - 911 callers complain about a deafening explosion and a bright flash of light in the middle of night. From late September until now, heard 25 times, always between midnight and 7 am with no consistent pattern. Police started investigating whether it was an electrical or gas problem. Experts with BGE began checking all of the power equipment in the area. They climbed on rooftops of the nearby Beth Tfiloh School and nearby condo building to check all of their electrical equipment and air compressors, but found no evidence of problems. There was no electrical charring, burning or malfunctioning equipment. A BGE spokesman confirms their investigation found no electrical problems or gas leaks in the area.

Then police decided to take the next step and install two cameras hoping to videotape the boom. Videotape taken at 3:34 a.m. on April 23 does show a flash of light that lasts a fraction of a second and lights up an area the size of a football field in the middle of the night. The flash on the tape is accompanied by loud boom that sounds like a crack of electricity or lightning. Cameras have videotaped the event on two other occasions. Police have used the shadows cast by the light flash to determine an approximate area where they think the light source may be coming from--30 to 40 feet in the air in the parking lot between the Beth Tfiloh Community School and the Stevenson Commons condominiums building. Police say they've consulted with many experts and they're running out of options.

Per the Zetas, there is no mystery. Booms and flashes are not new. They have been in the news since Planet X arrived in 2003. The have occurred on occasion before then in the late 1990's when Planet X began its journey toward the solar system.

Riddle as Massive Blast Rocks Homes
October 13, 2004
Police and the fire service received dozens of calls from the public about the blast which happened at 7.30 am. But despite efforts by both services to locate the source nothing was found. The British Geological Society is investigating. Though none of their earthquake signals were triggered, it said that it may have been too shallow to register on their measurements.

And booms are also associated with earthquakes, as this report on a recent quake in northern California demonstrates.

'Sonic boom' preceded 5.2 quake near Burnt Ranch
April 29, 2008
A magnitude-5.2 earthquake, centered 11 miles east southeast of Willow Creek, jolted the North Coast at 8:03 p.m. on Tuesday. A magnitude-2.0 aftershock hit five minutes later, 16 miles to the east of Willow Creek. "It was sort of like a sonic boom," said Brenda Simmons of SkyCrest Lake resort in Burnt Ranch. "It was a very loud noise before the house started shaking. I've felt earthquakes before, but never heard that loud of a noise before."

Per the Zetas, this has a simple explanation. As the ground moves, rock layers are pulled apart in the stretch zones, and then methane gas from rotting vegetation formerly trapped beneath rock layers is freed to loft into the air. Methane is lighter than air, and rises. Methane is highly explosive, and any spark such as lightning can light a pool or rising methane gas in the atmosphere. This creates a flash, of course, but also a boom like a thunder crack. Thunder is nothing more than air coming together in a clap to fill a vacuum after lightning has superheated the air to create the void in the first place. Thus the association of lightning and thunder. In the case of methane explosions, the flash and boom are likewise related to each other.

ZetaTalk Explanation 6/15/1996: Increasingly as the pole shift nears, the Earth will give evidence of the compression and tension in her surface by what humans will perceive to be sonic booms. The mechanism is in fact the same, clapping air masses, the same mechanism that produces thunder. Where thunder is caused by air masses separated by what is essentially a vacuum created by the superheating lightning bolt, and where sonic booms are caused by a compressed air mass pushed in front of the plane exploding back to equalize with the thin air mass trailing the plane, pre-cataclysm booms are caused by heaving in large bodies of water. Earthquakes where plates are compressing are measured by humans as the friction causes jolting, but for every compression adjustment there is, somewhere, a widening in a rift. Most often these rifts lie underwater, as water fills low lying places. A widening rift does not jolt the bordering plates, it is a silent adjustment. However, the sea water rushing to fill the new void has an effect on the air masses above, creating a thin air mass and causing the air on all sides of this thin air space to rush in, and clap!

ZetaTalk Explanation 1/15/1997: Accompanying booms caused by heaving seas in response to earth movements will increasingly be flashes of light, leading the startled public to perceive that an explosion might have happened. As the booms happen over water where could the spark for an explosion come from? These are indeed related to the booms, and are indeed explosions, and emerge from the same source. As we have stated in explanation to the Tunguska explosion, great pools of methane gas lie trapped under the surface in certain areas of the world, due to rotting debris trapped under layers of volcanic ash or sediment. Just as the booms indicate adjustments in the sea bed causing heaving water to clap, just so the flashes indicate adjustments in land masses allowing the methane gas to escape and on occasion spark into an explosion.

Maryland of course is in the stretch zone, but why are these Maryland booms and flashes only occurring in the middle of the night? Per the Zetas, this is clearly related to the regular rotation of the Earth and the tugging on the surface of the Earth that occurs when the magnetic N Pole of Earth rises over the horizon to face the rising Sun and the presence of Planet X near the Sun. This same explanation by the Zetas was given to explain why so many were waking up with insomnia at 3-4:00 am, a similar time to the majority of the Maryland booms and flashes.

I have a question on why many of us rising in the wee hours of the morning. Is there a particular reason why many of us are getting up at the exact same time every night? The people I've been talking with all think it's weird if nothing else and none suffer from insomnia.

ZetaTalk Explanation 4/12/2008: Threads on the GLP message board have discussed the timing of the insomnia many seem to be suffering from, specifically that it seems to strike at about 3-4 in the morning regardless of locale or time zone. Beyond worry there is an answer for this seemingly synchronized behavior. We have talked about the violent push the Earth receives when the magnetic N Pole of the Earth rises over the horizon to confront the N Pole of Planet X. This causes the wobble which pushes the magnetic N Pole away, and has caused the severe winter experienced by the entire northern hemisphere affecting both North America and Siberia. Thus, the flow of magnetic particles coming from the N Pole of Planet X is considerable, and man is an animal sensitive to magnetic influences. Consider that 3-4 in the morning is when your portion of the Earth is about to rise up over the horizon and face the Sun. Planet X is in the direction of the Sun. You are being awakened by a sudden rise in magnetic particles.

Edwards' Endorsement

After John Edwards dropped out of the Democratic presidential race in January, both the Clinton and Obama camps sought his endorsement. First Clinton, and then Obama, flew to Chapel Hill for private meetings with John Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, but no endorsement has been announced lo these many months.

Political Theories Abound in North Carolina, but Don't Ask John Edwards for His
April 29, 2008
As the Democratic presidential candidates and their surrogates traipse through North Carolina in the final days before the state's primary, some people here are wondering, why so quiet in Chapel Hill? That is where John and Elizabeth Edwards retreated after he dropped out of the race for the Democratic nomination on Jan. 30. Neither Mr. Edwards, a former North Carolina senator, nor Mrs. Edwards, a political activist herself, has endorsed a candidate, despite the growing intensity of the race between Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama and the fact that the contest has now landed in the Edwardses' backyard. Theories abound: They will endorse before the primary. Or after there is a nominee. Or Mr. Edwards will endorse Mr. Obama and Mrs. Edwards will endorse Mrs. Clinton. Or none of the above. Mr. Edwards has hinted to friends that he will not offer an endorsement before the North Carolina and Indiana primaries on May 6. One former aide, who was granted anonymity to speak candidly, said Mr. Edwards was angling for a role in a Democratic administration, and with the contest still undecided, was hesitant to commit to a candidate.

What's holding this up? Per the Zetas, it is self interest on the part of John Edwards, who has been attempting to extract a promise of a future position in a new Democratic administration, but does not want to back the wrong party. Clinton's promises were generous, but she does not appear to be winning. Obama refused to exchange an endorsement for a promise, so John Edwards is holding out.

ZetaTalk Insight 5/3/2008: Who does Edwards back, and will he announce? Despite all his rhetoric, Edwards is not as Service-to-Other as he asserts. He is an opportunist, and sees an opportunity to promote himself in the candidates' desire for his endorsement. In that North Carolina will be voting within days, time is running out. His silence is due to his desire to align with the winner and to avoid making a wrong choice. Clinton is willing to promise anything, as being the liar she is she intends to go back on any promise in any case. Most who deal with her understand the Clinton techniques, and do not take them seriously.

Obama made no promises, but can be counted upon to utilize talent, and Edwards knows this. Thus, if he thought Clinton was going to win, he'd be endorsing her instantly, as the plum she has promised is larger than any position that Obama might have mentioned as a possibility. But he has heard the insider rumors and can see the math and knows that without a stumble that Obama will win, without question. Thus, he is highly unlikely to endorse, at all, and will continue to claim to both candidates that he is secretly rooting for them.
