USGS Reports Record Number Of Strong Earthquakes In 2011

The number of dangerous earthquakes recorded worldwide so far in 2011 has reached record new levels, according to research conducted by iWeather Online (IWO). By analysing data from the US Geological Survey (USGS), IWO was able to determine that earthquake activity (6.0-9.9 magnitude) during the period 01 January to 12 October 2011 reached its highest level in 20 years.   The 2011 data was compared with data for the corresponding period in each of the 19 previous years since 1992. A total of 177 earthquakes in the range 6.0 to 10 magnitude on the Richter Scale have been recorded so far in 2011, compared to 149 for the same period in 2010 and 119 in 2009.

Here is a short timeline of some of the world's recent major quakes in the last 10 years:

Jan 26, 2001 - INDIA - An earthquake of magnitude 7.7 strikes the western state of Gujarat killing at least 19,700 people and causing damage in neighbouring Pakistan. The quake affected 15.9 million people in 7,904 villages.

Dec 26, 2003 - IRAN - A magnitude 6.8 earthquake strikes the historic city of Bam, 1,000 km (600 miles) southeast of Tehran. Some 30,948 people were killed in the quake.

Dec 26, 2004 - ASIA - The number of dead and missing in an Asian earthquake and tsunami reaches almost 230,000. The wave crashed into Sri Lanka and India, drowning thousands and swamping tourist isles in Thailand and the Maldives. The quake measured 9.15 in magnitude.

Oct 8, 2005 - PAKISTAN - At least 86,000 people are killed by a 7.6 magnitude quake about 95 km (60 miles) northeast of Islamabad. The quake also rocks Indian Kashmir, killing 1,244 there.

The quake strikes the Abruzzo region east of Rome. The dead were mainly in L'Aquila, a 13th century city about 100 km (60 miles) east of Rome with a population of 68,000.

January 13, 2010 - HAITI - A 7.0 magnitude quake devastates Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, and kills around 316,000 people. The United Nations estimates that 80,000 buildings in Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas collapsed after the quake, leaving 10 million cubic metres of rubble.

February 27, 2010 - CHILE - An 8.8 magnitude quake and subsequent tsunami in Chile kill more than 500 people and cause some $30 billion in damage, wrecking hundreds of thousands of homes and mangling highways and bridges.

Earlier today, someone asked if the number of earthquakes recently is ABOVE the average.

Thought I would bump this thread, as this is from 2011 - trying to find data from 2012.

However, I read on another message board that someone(a random poster) noticed that in recent weeks, the number of EQs has been BELOW the average. Now this is just from a RANDOM POSTER there(who noticed trends on the USGS web site), so I'm not giving a blanket endorsement here. However, assuming what this poster said is accurate(from his or her observations), another "big one" could be right around the corner b/c this seems to be the trends when "the big one" is around the corner(NOT according to me, but according to this poster).

Also, Greg Everson(I believe that's his name, who used to work in law enforcement for years, and now is on alternative media quite a bit nowdays) said that b/w March 13th and March 23rd, there could be an earth-shaking event.

No, I'm not saying let's start biting our fingernails and start stockpiling on everything, but just looking at all what's being observed here.

Anyhow, what I should have done myself is notice the trends daily on these EQs.

Hope this helps.

Strong earthquakes in the past 10 years as much as during the entire 20th century

Sofia. Russian scientists announced last week alarming observations about the strong earthquakes that shook the Earth. In the first decade of the 21st century there were almost as many earthquakes measuring above 6.0 on the Richter scale as there were during the entire 20th century. 14 such cases were registered in the 2001-2011 period compared to 17 strong tremors during the 20th century, the Super 19 Minuti weekly reads.

Astrologists believe that this might have something to do with entering the Age of Aquarius. By a terrifying coincidence it was on 11 March 2011 that the Fukushima disaster happened.

Seismologists have not disregarded the planetary influences that their colleagues "star-gazers" study. Still, they consider the excessive drilling for new energy sources to be a more influential factor. In the U.S. for example the shale gas revolution has led to a sharp increase of earthquakes.
