  1. Between HARRP and all of the solar activity, this is going to be quite the year…

  2. What’s curious at the moment, and after those quakes, I noticed TV reception was playing up (Satellite TV) and later headed to the supermarket and the radio in the car was doing the same thing.

    Let’s just hope these aren’t precursors – I’ll be keeping a watch out over the coming days. It pays to be vigilant 🙂
    p.s I’m in Christchurch and I know before the big shake in September 2010, people did report of TV reception playing up the day before…

    I wonder if the Supermoon on May 5th had anything to do with this!

    I survived the 1974 BIG EQ in Venezuela, and since then, I research everything I can on seismic activity (including volcanoes…), in the world. Everyday, since Darfield 4-09-74, and for months, I’ve been counting: not only the TWIN QUAKES in the wonderful Christchurch Quake Map, but the coincidences of eq-dates with the 11:11 of dates and times (11:11 which started in my life since 1978…). I think that the pattern of the after-shocks and the swarms of mini-EQ in the landscape, is like a mathematical game (or dance), designed as a ping-pong of opossites, with the earth, water,air and fire interactions, preparing the land for the big-huge cracks and the ups and the downs coming (sooner or later). In the Internet, there is some research on the EQSwarms-Volcanoes relationship). For sharing a brief example, here are some recent ChCh Apr-May 2012 TWIN EQs: (Date-Mag-T).

    (26/04/12: 2.6 -1:02-;>>>>>>2.6 -8:17).
    (27/04/12: 2.5 -10:34;>>>>>>2.5 -10:46).
    (29/04/12: 3.1 -9:16;>>>>>>>3.1 – 22:56)

    Sorry again: EQ in Venezuela was in 1967.

    USGS & EMSC ARE SHOWING LATEST NZ QUAKE AS MAGNITUDE 47 DEPTH 10 km…..THIS IS INCORRECT

    DIRECT FROM NZ SHOWS THE FOLLOWING:

    Magnitude 5.5, Depth 12 km, Saturday, May 12 2012 at 10:07 am (NZST), 40 km west of Tuatapere
