Mystery earth-shaking booms rattle central N.J. residents

Mystery Booms 2
April 2015NEW JERSEY - Mysterious, earth-shaking booms have been reported in recent weeks by dozens of Bordentown and Hamilton residents, and authorities are at a loss to explain them. The most likely culprit, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, says it wasn’t them. While the military base routinely hosts artillery training on weekends and warns residents in advance, the mystery booms have come at odd hours and on weekdays when the range is inactive. The latest boom jolted residents at 10 p.m. Monday. A closed Facebook group for Bordentown Township residents lit up with people asking each other, “Did anyone just feel that loud rumble? Was in the garage and the garage doors both rattled hard and I could feel the rumble under my feet,” was one of a dozen replies. A similar online conversation unfolded on March 19 after the noise was heard around 9 p.m. Another series of reports occurred on March 17, a Tuesday. Some have reported hearing several booms in succession during the span of an hour.
Residents in adjacent Hamilton Township in Mercer County also reported hearing the noise. Bordentown City police they had heard about online chatter about the explosions, but no one there had fielded any calls about them. Bordentown Township police Capt. Norman Hand was unaware of the sounds Tuesday, and nobody in the police department was talking about it, he said. As a lifelong resident of northern Burlington County, he is familiar with rumblings from the nearby base, he said. The speculation has run rampant from earthquakes to environmental cleanup at an old steel mill site across the Delaware River to sonic booms from jets breaking the sound barrier. The sounds are similar to those described in 2012 by residents in Manchester, Ocean County, where window-rattling booms plagued that area during the summer months and into the fall, according to news reports. Those explosions ceased soon after, without explanation. Another possible source could be fighter jets from the Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland, which run training exercises for F-35 and F-16 fighter jets in an off-shore area that spans Ocean City, Maryland, to Atlantic City.
But a spokeswoman for the air station said their fighters do not normally fly at night and the Bordentown area is outside of their normal range. “It was nothing from Pax River,” spokeswoman Connie Himple said. “That’s pretty far out of our airspace.” Hand, of the Bordentown Township police, offered this possible explanation: the thawing of the ground due to the intense cold weather this winter. He said a few weeks ago, his wife heard a loud bang in their home, and he heard the same sound while watching television at about 10 p.m. “It sounded like a car hit the back of our house,” Hand said. He checked the basement, and all his pipes were intact. He then learned from a television news program that the ground can make booming and loud cracking sounds when thawing from a prolonged cold period. “That’s just my two cents,” he said. –NJ

After brief respite, hot Chile volcano sends plume into the sky

April 2015CHILE - After a short period of rest, the Villarrica volcano in southern Chile recently exploded to life again, sending a plume of boiling ash high into the atmosphere. The eruption triggered an increase in the alert level near the volcano to orange, the second highest rating. The 2860-metre-high snow-capped stratovolcano, located 750 kilometers south of the capital Santiago, is one of the most active in Chile. The latest series of eruptions began on 7 February with several minor explosions and ash plumes triggering a yellow alert. A further pre-dawn eruption on 3 March sparked the evacuation of thousands of people from within a 10-kilometre radius of the volcano.
That eruption covered the mountain’s eastern flank with a huge volume of volcanic material. Villarrica is one of Chile’s most active volcanoes with at least 66 recorded eruptions since the arrival of Europeans. This image of Villarrica’s latest eruption was taken from an altitude of about 700 kilometers by the Advanced Land Imager onboard NASA’s EO-1 satellite on 18 March, 2015. –ABC Net

Early morning earthquake produced more than 70 aftershocks

Costa Rica Quake
April 2015COSTA RICA - An early morning 4.4 magnitude earthquake that struck two kilometers north of Vara Blanca, Heredia, produced more than 70 aftershocks, according to the National Seismological and Volcanological Observatory (OVSICORI). The initial quake, measuring 4.6-magnitude on the Richter scale, struck at 3:09 a.m.  Aftershocks continued until 5:17 a.m., according to OVSICORI. Significant shaking was reported in various sectors of Heredia, as well as in Naranjo, La Garita, El Coyal and Poas in Alajuela, and the western San Jose suburbs of Escazu and Santa Ana. The earthquake was later downgraded by the USGS. There were no reports of injury or damage. –Inside Costa Rica

Russian analyst urges nuclear attack on Yellowstone National Park and San Andreas Fault line to destroy U.S.

 Yellowstone Eruption
April 2015 YELLOWSTONE - Russian geopolitical analyst says the best way to attack the United States is to detonate nuclear weapons to trigger a supervolcano at Yellowstone National Park or along the San Andreas fault-line on California’s coast. The president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems based in Moscow, Konstantin Sivkov said in an article for a Russian trade newspaper on Wednesday, VPK News, that Russia needed to increase its military weapons and strategies against the “West’ which was “moving to the borders or Russia.” He has a conspiracy theory that NATO – a political and military alliance which counts the US, UK, Canada and many countries in western Europe as members – was amassing strength against Russia and the only way to combat that problem was to attack America’s vulnerabilities to ensure a “complete destruction of the enemy.”
“Geologists believe that the Yellowstone supervolcano could explode at any moment. There are signs of growing activity there. Therefore it suffices to push the relatively small, for example the impact of the munition megaton class to initiate an eruption. The consequences will be catastrophic for the United States – a country just disappears,’ he said. “Another vulnerable area of ​​the United States from the geophysical point of view, is the San Andreas fault – 1300 kilometers between the Pacific and North American plates … a detonation of a nuclear weapon there can trigger catastrophic events like a coast-scale tsunami which can completely destroy the infrastructure of the United States.” He said the Russian geography on the other hand would protect it from a tsunami or a volcano attack. Few people live on the coast in Russia and Siberia which rests on basalt would withstand similar attacks. Mr. Sivkov, who spoke at the 2013 Moscow Economic Forum, said by 2020 to 2025 Russia would have amassed “asymmetric weapons” in its arsenal for the attack. “The situation for us today is comparably worse than half a century ago,” he said.
“The weakened economic potential in Russia, the loss of the ‘spiritual core of what was the communist idea,’ and the lack of large-scale community allies in Europe such as the Warsaw Pact, Russia simply cannot compete against the NATO and its allies.” In December last year, the vocal military strategist told Russian newspaper, Pravda.ru that there is a “developing standoff between Russia and the West” and the US’s ultimate goal was to “destroy Russia.” Mr. Sivkov accused American politicians of committing several crimes including causing the deaths of 1,200,000 people in Iraq. He believed the only way for the “American elite” to be held accountable was for its military forces to be destroyed. “American politicians have committed a variety of crimes. Will anyone be held accountable for those crimes? What about the international law, the UN and other organizations? Are they doing anything?” he asked. Mr. Sivkov told Pravda that the idea of the US preparing for a serious war against Russia using cruise missiles was plausible given that it had already launched a thousand missiles in Yugoslavia and Iraq. –Sydney Morning Herald

Chile floods death toll rises to 17 – one of driest places on earth hit by worst flooding in 80 years

April 2015ATACAMA DESERT, CHILEOfficials in Chile said 17 people were killed and 20 were still missing after flash floods devastated the Atacama region in the north of the country last week. The rains, which started on Tuesday, were the worst in 80 years to fall in the region, one of the driest on Earth. Almost 11,000 people have been affected and more than 4,500 are in shelters. Interior Minister Rodrigo Penailillo said entire towns had been left without drinking water. We as a country will have to put a lot of effort in to get out of this situation,” Mr Penailillo said.
Rivers burst their banks after heavy rains in the Andes sent floodwater down into the valleys and towns below. The desert town of Chanaral was among the hardest hit with rivers of mud covering many of its streets. In Tierra Amarilla, emergency workers rescued 13 miners who had been cut off in a remote mining camp for five days. The search for 20 people still missing continues. Among the thousands who lost their home is Victor Zamora, one of the Chilean miners who was trapped underground for 69 days in 2010. He told local media that he had lost everything. “It’s a tragedy,” he said. –BBC

Indonesia’s Sinabung volcano still rumbling violently after nearly 2 years

Sinabung
March 2015INDONESIA – The volcano continues to effuse a viscous lava lobe from its summit crater. Frequent rockfalls and pyroclastic flows occur due to partial collapses of the sticky lava masses on the steep upper slope. Our friend Bastien Poux who has been observing the volcano during the past weeks sent us the following report: “I have been watching the Sinabung volcano for the last two weeks, there is a big lava lobe hanging at the summit, you can see it glow at night.
Debris flows are getting bigger and more frequent, usually the rocks come form the side of the lobe, where it is contact with the walls made of older formations (sign the lobe moves forward), between 10 and 25 times a day, going down the flank to distances between 500 and 2000m in general, couple of them went to 3000m yesterday when a big piece of the frontal part of the lobe collapsed. There is still a 5km forbidden perimeter, more or less respected by the people who want to go back in their houses after being refugees for 18 months.” –Volcano Discovery
