Whiteangel,

I guess I should say that a lot of people wouldn't consider crows, Robbins, possums, raccoons, squirrels and rats wildlife.

They are life even if most are rodents and pests, lol

I know squirrels are cute. Especially when you throw a little peanut outand they just sit there and enjoy the Hell out of it. But honestly they're just gray colored rats with furry tails. Squirrels are cute. Until they get up in your attic and have babies. Then the babies start chewing your wiring.

Florida Police Dog Killed by Lightning Strike

A lightning strike from a passing thunderstorm in Florida killed a Panama City Beach police dog named Argo.


Officials say most of the fur was missing from Argo's front leg above the paw, indicating a lightning strike.

Police Chief Drew Whitman says Gleason is having a hard time dealing with the dog's death.

I am really going to buy two gas masks. Seriously.
What you will read below is my most doom moment ever in this blog, and I have reasons for it.

It’s not the fissure that worries, not even it it’s a large event, or if the dike reaches Askja, but what it really worries me, is Bardarbunga caldera.

I reckon that a few more M5,8-M6 quakes, along with more draining of magma from within the caldera, and I think the caldera will start to collapse. That’s a powerful beating to the caldera, which by the way has not gone caldera for millenia.

We are already seeing extensive ring faulting, and quite large quakes. Total seismic energy release there has been already equivalent to a M6. About 25% of the threshold of what I think is necessary to pop the lid out, according to mine and Geolurking’s guessestimates. We could of course be wrong.

So, what to expect if it really goes caldera?

– A powerful VEI6 eruption, about 10+ km3 tephera (that’s several times more than Askja, Oraefajokull or the large eruptions of Hekla)
– Ash deposited all across Iceland. At least 1cm everywhere, and perhaps deposits many cms thick. Think 20cm or more. Icelanders migrating on emergency to Reykjavik. Farm sector of Iceland becomes impossible. Tourism too. Iceland suffers major economic losses, and it will be a stress daily life, dealing with so much ash. Many will just travel away. Because for many life in certain parts of Iceland will be impossible.
– Ash deposited in Scotland and Norway of a few mm. European disruption of airlines is massive.
– Worldwide disruption of climate. Severe cold winters. Cold summers. Large economic losses, and further social unrest, but overall it’s not the end of our western way of living, just a severe setback in some things.
– Definitively panic would appear because of airline disruption.

So this is not end of the world, but a nasty scenario. Especially for me. Trouble is we are getting within a reasonable percentage of likelihood for that. It’s not a far fetched scenario anymore. It is possible at the moment. And it’s progressing towards it. Albeit we do not know how much energy is required for that.

Hmmm, I saw the swell advisory this morning and wondered if the pounding surf could trigger bigger "aftershocks"? Anyone know if that is possible?

Still not convinced that wasn't a foreshock.

– Definitively panic would appear because of airline disruption.

So this is not end of the world, but a nasty scenario. Especially for me. Trouble is we are getting within a reasonable percentage of likelihood for that. It’s not a far fetched scenario anymore. It is possible at the moment. And it’s progressing towards it. Albeit we do not know how much energy is required for that.

What is really disturbing about this is if it blows they are already predicting below average cold for this winter it will wreak havoc with fuel heating prices, people coping to stay warm, the eco-system. The domino effect will prevail. when the huge volcano blew in Katmai all the wildlife perished the ash blinded every animal bears, moose, wolves they all starved to death.

California nuclear plant gets thumbs down from expert over quake fears

A confidential report by a senior nuclear expert calls on regulators to close California's last nuclear plant until it can be established the facility can survive a powerful earthquake, according to an exclusive AP report.

The Diablo Canyon Power Plant, which was built near three geographical fault lines, provides electricity needs for more than 2.2 million people in America’s largest state. However, a confidential report by the plant’s former inspector, Michael Peck, is calling on federal regulators to pull the plug on the facility.

Following the closure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station in 2013, 30-year-old Diablo Canyon is the sole remaining nuclear energy supplier in California.

Peck warned in his 2013 report, which was obtained and verified by the Associated Press, that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is failing to maintain safety standards previously put in place for the facility's operation.

The primary issue, as described by AP, is that “no one knows whether the facility's equipment can withstand strong shaking from those faults - the potential for which was realized decades after the facility was built.”

Continuing to operate Diablo Canyon plant “challenges the presumption of nuclear safety,” the nuclear expert, who is employed as an instructor by the NRC, warned.

The surfacing of the confidential report comes after a magnitude-6 earthquake hit northern California on Sunday, injuring dozens of people and causing over $1 billion dollars in property losses. Fears that Sunday’s earthquake was just a precursor to the much-feared ‘Big One’ have once again sparked debate on the ability of California’s aging infrastructure to withstand an earthquake.
