I was just checking the USGS site and there have been 10
6+ quakes in the time period of 1-27 thru 2-2.
10 big quakes in one week is not the norm!

Sundoro volcano, Indonesia

Posted on February 3, 2013 by John Seach


2013 Fatalities
Two high school students were killed at Mount Sundoro volcano on 1st January 2013 after they were overcome by toxic fumes. Wonosobo Search and Rescue team found their bodies near Gerawah crater, where the strong smell of sulphur filled the air.

Eruptions at Sundoro volcano have historically produced ash plumes rising from the summit which were visible for tens of kilometers. However, no record of volcanic ash on the ground has been found, indicating ash was too thin to be preserved. Sundoro volcano in central Java was raised to level 2 alert on 6th December 2011 after an increase in seismicity. The last eruption of Sundoro volcano was in 1971.

Paluweh volcano, Indonesia: major explosion with ash plume rising 13 km, aviation alert level on Red

Darwin VAAC has spotted an ash plume rising to altitude of 13 km from Indonesian Paluweh (Rokatenda) volcano on February 2, 2013. The likely cause is either a major dome collapse triggering a large pyroclastic flow or a vulcanian explosion of the lava dome, Volcano Discovery reports.

Wow! I am excited.(Not in a rude way.)

Colossal cosmic collision coming this year

By mid-2013 a gas cloud is expected to pass in its vicinity at a distance of only 36 light-hours (equivalent to 40.000.000.000 km), which is extremely close in astronomical terms. So-called super massive black holes are the largest type of black holes.

Earthquake in Japan on Sunday, 03 February, 2013 at 15:36 (03:36 PM) UTC.

Description
(02.02.2013) A powerful 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck northern Japan on Saturday, causing strong tremors across Hokkaido island but no damage to several nuclear facilities in the region, officials said. The quake, which was preceded by an early warning broadcast on television and radio, hit near the town of Obihiro at a depth of 103 kilometres at 11.17pm, according to US Geological Survey data. Ten people suffered minor injuries due to falling objects, broken glass and other incidents, according to national broadcaster NHK, but authorities said no serious damage was reported and the quake did not generate a tsunami. The shaking lasted about a minute, with video taken in the offices of NHK Hokkaido showing computer screens swaying and shelves threatening to give way. Bottles smashed to the ground in supermarkets, some areas had power blackouts and a number of highways were closed. Trains were stopped on rural tracks as a precaution.

"Beware of possible landslides and buildings that could have been weakened," an official from Japan's Meteorological Agency warned at a press conference. The most violent tremors were felt in the eastern part of Hokkaido - the nation's second largest island and a popular skiing destination - but the northern part of the island was also shaken along with parts of the main island of Honshu, where Tokyo is located. Utility firms said no abnormalities were reported at the Tomari nuclear plant in Hokkaido's west, nor at the nuclear facilities in Aomori, the northernmost prefecture on Honshu. Aomori is home to the Higashidori nuclear reactors and a nuclear reprocessing plant in Rokkasho, which is currently in a testing phase, as well as fuel storage sites. At present only two of the country's 50 reactors are operational, after the entire network was shuttered over several months for scheduled safety checks following the quake-tsunami disaster of March 2011. Both are in Oi, in Honshu's west. Shortly before Saturday's quake hit, an alert was broadcast on television and radio through an early warning system established by the weather agency, and programmes were interrupted on NHK. "Make yourself safe, turn off the gas, beware of falling objects, and if you are outside do not approach the coast," a broadcaster said. Some four hours after the quake a 5.5-magnitude tremor struck off Japan's Izu islands, around 725 kilometres south of Tokyo, according to the US Geological Survey. [link to hisz.rsoe.hu]

Extreme Weather in Tanzania on Monday, 04 February, 2013 at 05:56 (05:56 AM) UTC.

Description
Nearly 50 houses were destroyed by strong winds accompanied by heavy rains that rocked Hai District, Kilimanjaro Region last weekend. he Hai District Commissioner, Mr Novatus Makunga, stated here that close to 100 families have been rendered homeless by the natural disaster, which also destroyed many acres of maize, beans and banana plantations. No casualties were recorded. The winds accompanied by heavy rains currently pounding Kilimanjaro Region also destroyed a number of bridges, cutting off communication between villages and wards and according to Mr Makunga, the rivers have also swelled and are overflowing, making rescue operations difficult. The most affected areas so far include the Boma-Ng'ombe Township, which is the district headquarters, Rundugai and Chemka villages. Other parts that suffered the calamity are Kwa-Tito, and Shiri-Mgungani villages in Machame and Weruweru wards as well as Mijongeni village of Machame-Kusini Ward, further south.

"The problem here is that people have been cutting down trees at alarming pace causing the entire landscape to be susceptible to whirlwinds," said Mr Makunga, urging local residents to start planting trees because forests work as wind break in addition to improving the environment. The Ward Councillor for Machame-Kusini, Mr Nassib Mdeme, said more than 23 houses have so far been destroyed by the gusts of wind and heavy rains which fell in his ward last weekend. "A total of 255 acres of maize and 177 acres of banana plantations have been destroyed by the winds in this ward alone," said the Machame representative. To help the victims, the government has donated an initial relief food package consisting of 200 kilogrammes of maize flour, 100 kilogrammes of beans plus several litres of cooking oil, consignments that were presented to the people by the district commissioner.

Seismologist warns of megathrust earthquake threat for New Zealand

Posted on February 4, 2013by The Extinction Protocol

February 4, 2013 – NEW ZEALAND – Less than 100km off the coast of Hawke’s Bay is a deep-water trench that could be the site of a potential megathrust earthquake similar to the 2011 Japan earthquake, says seismologist Kevin Furlong. Despite the Hikurangi Trench’s potential, he said very little was known about the underwater valley, where the Pacific plate was dragged underneath the Australian plate. Professor Furlong, of Pennsylvania State University, said the worst-case scenario for the East Coast was not yet known. “Many, if not most, scientists working on these megathrust earthquake plate boundaries would argue that, although it is very, very unlikely, until we can demonstrate otherwise we should expect that major segments of these boundaries could rupture simultaneously. Most of the time, as was the case in Japan for the past several hundred years at least, segments rupture individually and so maximum earthquakes are in the mid-to high magnitude 7 range. But on rare occasions, such as in 2011 in Japan, bigger ruptures can occur. We need to decide how best to manage that potential and uncertainty.” The trench will soon be part of a global study into megathrust earthquakes. “Although we understand the general concept and general physics of megathrusts – the big subduction zone earthquakes – we are finding in our data from recent major events such as in Sumatra [Boxing Day 2004], Chile in 2010, and most recently in Japan, that they each have characteristics that differ from each other, and our existing models of how we might think they should behave during the actual earthquake rupture are incomplete,” he said. “So we need to improve our understanding, to understand what is causing this variability and whether we can anticipate it in advance. Part of the reason for this is that, during the main era over which our understanding of subduction zone earthquakes was developed from the mid-1960s until the 1990s, as the theories of plate tectonics were developed, we didn’t have any earthquakes of the size of these recent big ones. So although our understanding worked well for the slightly smaller events, it isn’t adequate for the really big ones.” He said regular quakes felt on the East Coast were related to the Hikurangi subduction zone and plate boundary. “Some are in the upper plate – the North Island – and some are on the boundary between the upper plate and the subducting Pacific plate. They all provide information about how the plate boundary is locked and how the different components are deforming. But unfortunately these earthquakes don’t help release the stress that is building up. That will only be released by big earthquakes but perhaps not for hundreds of years. In our research, one of the things we do investigate is what spatial patterns there are to these smaller earthquakes, as we can use that information to estimate the way in which the plate boundary is locked.” The 2011 Japan megathrust earthquake measured a magnitude 9 and triggered a tsunami that reached heights of up to 40.5 meters in constricted places, travelling up to 10km inland. There were 15,878 deaths and 2713 people reported missing. -HBTNZ [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]
