No, no tsunami. But the 5.2 is the deepest recorded earthquake ever :)

they're all very deep Eqs, getting DEEPER and a bit too big for my liking

is the discontinuity FINALLY failing?

I thought the quake in Bolivia in 1994 was deeper at 630km?

Followed by

5.2
6.1
6.6

Maybe not in this order but...

6.6 then 6.1 then 5.2.

All very deep, the 5.2 was close to the 6.6 but the 6.1 quite far to be an aftershock. Who knows !

At such great depth i have to wonder if anything much happens near the surface.

6.6 is a tremor?

6.6 is a fricken earthquake.

All "tremors" are earthquakes.

6.6 BEFORE a 6.1 would be the main quake with a 6.1 aftershock so someone is either providing strange disinformation or this was no ordinary series of quakes.

The depths are pretty impressive.

These EQs are a result of the destruction of the underground Draconian bases of Argartha.

The Ebonon are pissed at the Draco Reptoids for enslaving the Gray and modifying the Human Mixnoids life span.

The Ebonon are the Archangels or Elohim of Ancient text, and the Dracos are a young and naive cool-blooded intelligent ET species that are advanced Genetic scientist recorded as the "Serpent of Eden" and "The Dragon who was quarantined to Earth" by Micha-Elohim of the warm-blooded Ebonon species in Revelations.

The quake happened within the mantle. Last year had a 8.3 Mantle quake.
[link to www.livescience.com]

"It looks so similar to shallow events, even though it's got 600 kilometers of rock on top of it. It's hard to understand how such an earthquake occurs at all under such huge pressure."

One possibility is that water or liquid carbon dioxide somehow seeped into the crack to lubricate it, thereby allowing the two slabs of rock to slide past each other more quickly.

But though water and gas from the ocean may seep into the shallower depths of the Earth's surface, it's difficult to see how water could seep so deep below.

"There may be some source of fluid that we haven't recognized," Lay said.

Rock transformation

Another possibility is that the main type of rock found at this depth, called olivine, goes through a mineral transformation because of the enormous pressures it is under, which then triggers sliding between different types of rock.

A second paper in the same issue of Science bolsters the case for mineral transformation as the culprit for massive deep earthquakes.

more from the link in my last post:

(regarding the activity on april 8th 2014)

….. this deep mantle earthquake is NOT alone.

Past 48 hours something going on VERY deep inside the Earth — all at roughly 300 – 350 miles deep. Showing as multiple earthquakes happening across the entire Pacific Plate ( again, particularly not normal in the East Pacific / Brazil)

This indicates deep earth magma displacement where the Liquid mantle meets the crust. An area inside the earth, below the crust, called the “Asthenosphere”.

If you see multiple earthquakes in the Asthenosphere, around the entire Pacific Plate , all happening within 48 hours …. one can know for certain that something is majorly moving inside the earth. Also, know that larger + shallower movement will be occurring in adjacent areas to these deep Earthquakes.

Expect more large earthquake activity due to this. Near term. New Earthquake overview coming out tomorrow will cover this NEW development.


So, looks like the pacific plate is on the move big time hiding
