Earthquakes (7.3 & 6.2) Rock Honshu Japan, Damaged Fukishima Nuclear Reactor


Reposted from Durchsinse

Pictured above: screenshot from Earthquake3D USGS feed — A 7.3M , 6.2M, and subsequent earthquake swarm in the east Asia region — multiple different epicenters in the same area off the east coast of Honshu Japan — near the same area as last years (march 2011) large earthquake/tsunami.

A confirmed 3 foot (1 meter) tsunami occurred with this earthquake: (thanks to Louise Woods for this below link!)

Patrick Geryl predicts another earthquake! (+/- 2 days)

Future dates to watch include: 

December 4-5: 7 plus - hit! - 7.3, Honshu, Japan
December 10 – 13, 2012: Opposition Uranus – Mercury across the Sun
December 11: 7 plus
December 14, 2012: Line Ups: Pluto – Moon – Earth and Mars – Moon – Earth
December 12 – 16, 2012: Triple Line Up Neptune – Mars – Venus (strong December 14) 
December 17, 2012: Line up: Neptune – Moon – Earth
December 17-18: 8 plus
December 16 – 18, 2012: Triple Line Up Jupiter – Earth – Mercury (strong December 17)
December 17 – 18, 2012: Conjunction Venus – Mercury and the Sun
December 17 – 18, 2012: Conjunction Ceres – Earth 
December 19, 2012: Conjunction Saturn – Mercury and the Sun  
December 20, 2012: Line Up: Uranus – Moon – Earth
December 21, 2012: Conjunction Saturn – Venus and the Sun
December 20 – 24, 2012: Triple Line Up Neptune – Mars – Mercury (strong December 22)
December 21 – 24, 2012: Triple Line Up Jupiter – Earth – Venus (strong December 22 – 23)
December 21: 10 plus
December 23, 2012: Line Up: Saturn – Moon – Earth
December 25, 2012: Line Up: Jupiter – Moon – Earth

From George Ure at Urban Survival:

I sent a note to Patrick this morning to see how this fits with his expectations for the period ahead. As you will recall, in his earlier work, he’d mentioned Dec. 10 as a possible 8.0 magnitude window, but with the quake off Japan this morning, I wasn’t sure it this was enough energy release to meet his expectations.

“George,

I mailed you Wednesday that i overlooked An important line up… This is him in total

1) The Earth is in a conjunction with Jupiter till December 9. Started November 29… So long conjunction…

2) Uranus is in an opposition with Venus from November 30 till December 8

3) On December 7-8 there is a line up Uranus – moon – earth…

So this was the trigger. When the conjunction with Jupiter ends…possible aftershocks… “


Of course, that – either way – leaves us with the Dec 13-17 period and the Dec. 21 “problem” so for now we’ll just collect readings and wonder what’s to come next.

UPDATE: 12/08/2012 — Japan Earthquake Swarm — Compared to the ESA measurements from last year (2011 post earthquake)

Compare the above chart from 2011 — showing the Japan lateral movement after the 9.0M earthquake — to the current 7.3M earthquake + swarm occurring off the east coast of Honshu (which produced a small 3 foot tsunami yesterday December 7, 2012).

You will also see the current earthquake swarm spot is the same spot as the 9.0M last year (2011).. and it is ALSO the same spot as the 7.2M last year (2011) which produced a 3 foot tsunami as well.

Lets hope history does NOT repeat itself, because right now, it looks like it did last year before the large EQ hit.

UPDATE: 

Reports: “Something may have happened at Fukushima II Nuclear Power Plant” after M7.3 quake — Tepco “did not know cause of pressure rise”
