Philippines Have Back To Back Quakes

The USGS shake map of the Philippnes

Large earthquakes rocked the Philippines, October 15, 2013.

A 7.2 magnitude quake rocked the central Philippines early Wednesday morning, October 15, 2013.  The major quake was followed by 5.3, 5.4, and 5.3 magnitude quakes.

Tsunami warnings were not generated from these quakes.


There are four active volcanoes in the Philippines to keep a watch on:

  1. Taal
  2. Mayon
  3. Bulusan
  4. Kanlaon

Earthquake History

The Philippines is no stranger to large earthquakes. The 5 largest earthquakes recorded in the Philippines are:

  1. 8.6 Sept 20, 1897
  2. 8.7 Sept 21, 1897
  3. 8.3 Aug 15, 1918
  4. 8.3 April 14, 1924
  5. 8.3 Jan 24, 1948

Volcanoes, earthquakes, typhoons, and tsunamis – oh my. What’s coming next?

Volcanoes Increase At Poles And Equator, Signs Of An Axis Shift

Volcanic eruptions increase at the poles and at the equator.

An increase in both earthquake and volcanic activity near the North Pole and near the equator is a clear sign that the Earth’s axis is becoming more unstable.

Increase In Volcanic Eruptions At The Equator

  1. Kilauea: Hawaii
  2. Telica: Nicaragua
  3. Taal: Phillipines
  4. Popocatepeti: Mexico

Increase In Volcanic Eruptions At The North Pole and South Pole

  1. Pavlof: Alaska
  2. Veniaminof: Alaska
  3. Cleveland: Alaska
  4. Shiveluch: Kamchatka, Russia
  5. Chirinkotan: Kamchatka, Russia
  6. Ambrym: south of Vanuatu, S. Pacific

There are more than 150 volcanoes in Kamchatka, and up to 30 of them are active; Shiveluch and Chirinkotan both have had marked increases in ash and steam over the past 24 hours.

As the poles continue to wobble with an unstable spin, more crustal movement will occur. Watch for an increase in earthquakes and volcanoes at both the poles and along the equator.

Natural Disasters Ramping Up Around Mediterranean Sea and Saudi Arabia

When the Earth’s mantle shifts, the poles follow. – Albert Einstein, 1955

Earthquakes, volcanoes, and storms are increasing in and around the Mediterranean Sea, but according to an article by ABC News, many scientists are oddly puzzled by this.

It’s No Mystery

Throughout history, Mt. Etna has been one of the most fascinating volcanoes in the world. The volcano towers 3,329 meters (10,922 feet) above the Sicilian city of Catania.

The volcano is located at the precise spot where the African and European tectonic plates rub against each other. At this boundary location, lava continuously flows into the base of Mt. Etna, and today, Etna is releasing lava more violently than it has in many years.

What’s happening to cause this sudden eruption and increase in volcanic activity? The Earth’s axis is shifting, and this causes a shift in the crust all over the planet.

THIS shift causes:

  1. large earthquakes to occur globally (as we are witnessing today),
  2. a shift in the global wind patterns (which we are witnessing today),
  3. larger and more unpredictable storm patterns (that we are witnessing today),
  4. global warming (as we are witnessing today),
  5. an increase in extraterrestrial objects hitting the Earth (that we are witnessing today),
  6. an increase in volcanic eruptions (which we are witnessing today).

Watching Etna

German geophysicist Rolf Schick stated in the ABC article: “The stream of magma doesn’t move uniformly, but in spurts, vibrating as if it were in a hydraulic pump. This makes Etna so unpredictable.”

Using seismic sensors, Schick discovered that the stream of magma from Etna has a “pulse rate” of sorts, which is forced through the volcano’s vents at a rate of about 72 beats per minute —  a rate similar to that of the human heartbeat.

Hum, this proves that all life on Earth resonates WITH the Earth. When the Earth shifts, we shift. When the Earth heats up, we heat up … This comes as no surprise.

5.7 Quake in Yemen

5.7 earthquake in Yemen, May 2103 – USGS

On May 27, 2013, a 5.7 earthquake struck off the coast of Yemen, south of Saudi Arabia. The increase in earthquake activity in this area is occurring at the same time volcanic eruptions are increasing in the Mediterranean Sea.

Coincidence? Of course not.

Earthquakes will continue to strike around the Arabian Plate as the African Plate continues to push against the European Plate.  The Arabian and Indian Plates will respond with an increase in volcanic and earthquake activity.

Look for more volcanic eruptions, more earthquakes, and a tsunami or two in this region.

Mount Etna is a barometer … this comes as no surprise.
