Is THE BIG ONE coming....

From Today's Times

Fears over earthquake 'swarm' at Yellowstone National Park




Quote:
(William Kronholm/AP)

Yellowstone National Park: the most devastating earthquake hit August 17, 1959, which measured 7.1


Mike Harvey in San Francisco

Hundreds of earthquakes have hit Yellowstone National Park, raising fears of a more powerful volcanic eruption.
The earthquake swarm, the biggest in more than 20 years, is being closely monitored by scientists and emergency authorities.
The series of small quakes included three last Friday which measured stronger than magnitude 3.0. The strongest since this latest swarm of quakes began on December 27 was 3.9.
No damage has yet been reported but scientists say this level of activity - there have been more than 500 tremors in the last week - is highly unusual.
For those that have seen the BBC drama documentary Supervolcano..... this could be heralding the start of the Big One

Happy New Year to all

Re: Is THE BIG ONE coming....

Is this because you are worried about the subsequent ash fall out?

Or perhaps the knock-on effect that would trigger another earthquake in Zurich and a devastating series of tsunami as the water of the lake rocked to and fro?

Or possibly it's a concern that the heat from the volcano will trigger off a change in the normal air pressure systems around the world and Zurich will end up stuck under a tropical low pressure with constant rain for much of the summer?

I share your concerns. This could make the subprime crisis, which of course was all America's fault (to paraphrase Gordon Brown) look quite insignificant!

Re: Is THE BIG ONE coming....

You cannut share your shelter, until you've had a shower?
Or you cannut share your shower with (¿cannut?) until the volcano has erupted?
AND are you going to take a shower in the meantime, or wait until you must go to the shelter? By then your hubby will be long gone to some perfumed meadow and therefore you will be able share your shower and your shelter.
So maybe by then cannut will drop the nut in ze can, and therefore...oh well...
way to complicated.
It's snowing anyway, and I must count ze tremblours before the world finishes in a big bang of ash and pumice.

Talk about 'zem heroes


Paul
P.s. what does this story have to do with the Big One "coming"?...Doh'!
