Will there be another major earthquake soon?
info is going out that sometime near the end of September or early October the comet Elenin will cause major seismic disruptions. Some highly populated area will be wiped out. Is this just another excuse by those using HAARP tech for population and world control.
Scientists have been trying for many many years to figure out a way to predict earthquakes, but without any success. They have tried to use animals, thinking that they grew quiet or something, they have tried to use the weather, they have tried using the heavenly bodies, from the planets to the stars, to no avail.
More gloom & doom to add to the conspiriacy 'fringe.'
ya and the pope is actually a really nice guy who doesn't care about power. earthquakes happen but when we don't know.
No one can currently accurately predict an earthquake, or else countless of lives would have been saved throughout the years.
My sister is a geophysicist (meaning she studies movement of the earth) and I asked her after the earthquake/tsunami in Japan that seemed to happen right on the heels of the really bad one in New Zealand if there had been a recent uptick in major earthquakes. Basically her explanation was that even though scientists can't predict when earthquakes happen and where, if you look kind of large-scale at data for say, number of earthquakes each year, there really isn't much variation year-to-year. When it seems like there are more major ones hitting, it's just because more major ones have happened to strike in plates that are under land (as opposed to under the sea floor, which makes up a much greater percentage of the earth's surface than does land) and that are in areas that are highly populated. How "bad" an earthquake is is just as much about how it affects populations of people and how it is portrayed by the media as it is about the measurement of the seismic waves! The vast majority of earthquakes that happen are ones that the general public isn't even aware of because they aren't felt by people and/or don't affect us in terms of damage.
So the short answer is, there probably will be another major earthquake soon, because major earthquakes are not completely rare occurrences. But I don't think that we should go ahead and read too much into that fact.

Why do some try to predict when an earthquake will take place? We can't do that yet can we?We are not able to predict when earthquakes will happen right? You see, I live near Portland, OR. and we are apparently on or near a major fault line. There have been recent articles...

What would you do if an earthquake struck in your area?Are you prepared? What would you do if the earth started to shake? Do you have any plans for what to do afterwards?

If an earthquake were to suddenly happen where you were at, would you know what to do?
