Number Nine: 6.1 magnitude earthquake strikes Tonga region of south Pacific

November 17, 2012TONGA - A powerful 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck along the Pacific plate boundary, near the Tonga trench. The earthquake struck at a depth of 9.8 km (6.1 miles). The epicenter of the earthquake was 174 km (108 miles) ENE of Neiafu, Tonga. No tsunami warnings were issued for the region. Today’s 6.1 earthquake is the ninth major earthquake to strike the planet in the last 9 days. The current string of seismic activity began on November 8, with successive earthquakes striking Vancouver Islands, Myanmar, Guatemala, the Gulf of Alaska, Aisen and Coquimbo Chile, Mexico, the Kuril Islands and lastly, the Tonga Region. –The Extinction Protocol

    This series of quakes started on November 11! What gives with this date??? Is this a coincidence or what??

    • Yes, after the Nov 8th quake, 11-11 appeared to have opened a door. Perhaps soon, we shall see where it leads.

        Alvin,
        What is the average number of 6+ magnitude earthquakes in a year and how many are we up to this year? Where do you believe all this is leading? How far will it drag out and do you see evidence and signs that the planet is tilting away from an extinction level event? Thank you and keep doing what you do!
        God bless you!

        It could go from what we are now, to something unimagineable over a short period of time because the changes in the core of the planet are relatively undetectable until the surface, oceans, and or lithosphere of the planet begins to breakdown due to the stress from the changes in temperature and the expansion of magma through cracks, plumes, and cavities in the planet’s crust. This ELE of the nature of a geological overturn of the planet are notoriously unpredictable in scope, arrival, intensity, and duration. About all we know from the historical record is these events come with very little warning and the planet is overwhelmed to a point where it goes from a major disaster, to global upheavel type event, where it very nearly wipes the planet clean of all life. If enough volcanoes don’t erupt to depressurize the heat build-up and the planet continues to warm; the crust of the planet will begin to fracture at its weakest points and whole continents could be engulfed in rivers of lava hundreds of meters thick.

        Here’s some background of the Permian Extinction and how the crust of the planet split open in a catastrophic flood basalt eruption in Siberia. This is how bad it got in the past. Here’s the protocol for the Permian:

    Are we in record breaking territory? If so, why aren’t emergency agencies alarming any bells?

    Since I have been receiving daily e-mail alerts from the USGS for the past four years or so, earthquakes in this region (Tonga) always populated my inbox on a daily basis it seemed. Now for a short period of time this year, it has been quite but lately activity seems to be picking back up.

    Folks, in my opinion, and just my opinion, I am expecting not one but several significant earth change events at the same time.
