Millions news for hurricane Irma in U.S

Just few line about Mexican earthquake ? Shame for Humans

A major earthquake with a magnitude of 8.4 hit Mexico Thursday night, according to the US Geological Service.

It's the biggest earthquake to hit the country in a century, said Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who said the quake was magnitude 8.2. It was centered off the Pacific coast, near Chiapas. "He said that there have been 62 aftershocks and it's possible one as strong as 7.2 could hit," per the AP.
At least 32 people have died, and 1 million people were reportedly without power after the earthquake


update
Mexico earthquake kills at least 61 and is felt by 50 million...

Yes we are all humans atleast we can wish them well ,they are very fortunate that casualties are low,maybe the injured list is higher with loss of property,in many countries earthquakes with lower magnitute have caused more damage ,quiet some time back in our country in the state of Gujarat a earthquake struck with magnitute 6.1 more than 100000 people lost their lives,it all depends how good the infrastructure is in a place

Yes!! Of course i care, but what should i say besides "Stay safe" I think it's pretty random when it comes to casualties in these kind of events.

These kind of disasters is like a foreign world to us scandinavians, I think last time we had a hurricane is over 20 years ago, And that was kind of weak and not specially frightening.

These are tragic events and making 20 post's about it dosn't make it better, Stay safe everyone and don't take any unnecessary risk's (But how am i going to judge that).

Red cross managed to squeeze 30$ out of me on my doorstep yesterday (They know i can't say no,Damn little runts) :mrgreen:

And NO!!, I don't think it's the end of the world (It will come someday)

This is already out of the ordinary.

Something must really be happening with all these extremely strong continuous natural phenomena.

My personal theory is everyone and everything is linked together in some way.

Is it all foreplay to Sept 23rd when the world is supposed to end?
If I could I would donate to the Red Cross,but just did earlier today
to help BC victims of the wildfires that have burned out many homes
and structures besides the forests.

*SIGH*

For those interested in the science re quakes, here it goes: . Picture a water bed. Now, picture what happens if you slap one part of the water bed. RIPPLES.

NOW--Picture taking a group of those big foam puzzle pieces that kids have, the kind of puzzle that is floor sized. NOW, out a group of them together, and place in the center of the waterbed, and SQUEEZE the mattress, then release.


THAT IS PLANET EARTH. A liquid sphere, solid core, jointed solid surface rotating at 1200+ mile per hour at the equator-- and when that happens, the Earth "breathes", it expands and contracts by a few feet. The liquid itself sloshes around and has a tidal effect, the moon also has a tidal effect on the liquid under the crust in addition to the oceans, which we see of course. All kinds of stuff pulls on the earth, and on those tectonic plates. If you take two puzzle pieces of any kind in your hands, and push them against each other, you can see them twist and then bend under the pressure. Earth gets alot more than that.. And this causes millions of tiny quakes a day--the breathing. The Big ones come because the stretch and shrinking causes those puzzle pieces to shift and move under and over each other, or slide along each other, and sometimes--the pressure snaps like a bursting balloon, there's a BIG stress release...and there you have it.

And that quake is the BIG SLAP on the top of the mattress, which sends ripples around the ring of fire that edges the entire pacific. Which can cause a chain of smaller quakes, or suboceanic quakes, or volcanic activity. Or it might cause another area under severe stress to snap.

With any luck, these big ones don't set off other big ones. I certainly do feel sorry for anyone caught in a big one. I think part of the reason the hurricanes get more attention is because instead of hitting one megalopolis and causing 100 deaths, they are tearing up entire islands and states, and impacting millions. Look at St Martin, it's hell on earth there right now....

Ever since all this absolutely natural weather and the quakes started, my facebook has been overloaded with frantic people scaring other people with inaccurate, or utterly false BS. Now the world may indeed be ending next week. If that is the case, there is likely nothing we can do about it--so I live every day as though it is my last anyway.

And as it happens, I have already added Mexico to my personal donation list for the week. Beyond that there isn't much I can do, unfortunately. But in the end, there are tins of things that happen every day that NEVER make the news. Bear in mind last year, when Gatlinberg burned 2 weeks before Christmas, that fire had already been going 2 WEEKS and eaten 85,000 acres of the southeast... Which never made the big news....

I don't know about any where else but the USA is rather thorough in regards to world news.

Of course, common sense is any country is going to relay more about the events happening
inside their own country.

Here in the USA, we have nightly world news and nightly local news and daily morning local
news and daily afternoon local news. We also have Fox News that is on about all day and night.
In addition we have ABC news, CBS news, NBC news. There is even more....there is Headline
News, CNN news, and various (A LOT) of news stations on TV besides the ones I just mentioned.

The USA is also has a very large number of charities and contributors that give to many areas
of the world, not just our own country.

Personally, I am sick of the news but it seems there is no way getting away from it.

6.1 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Japan, just 320 kilometres east of Fukushima nuclear plant.

The American scientific agency, which tracks natural disasters around the world, said the quake occurred 281 kilometres from Kamaishi, in northern Japan.

Disasters are natural phenomenons but the fact that they are happening more frequently is out of the ordinary. It may be a sign that these disasters happens more often due to climate change or because it is a sign that the end is near but not too soon. One thing is for sure, we all need to be united and have hearts full of love and care.

There are many earthquakes every day.

I live on the New Madrid Fault Line and have experience earthquakes here.

It's just that normally earthquakes are not large enough to be felt and most
the only ones people here about, is the ones they experience.
