TSUNAMI WARNING as 8.2 EARTHQUAKE Hits CHILE - Could This Lead To Yellostone Eruption?

Widespread evacuations ordered and deaths reported as big quake out in ocean sends waves surging towards mainland

A powerful magnitude 8.2 earthquake struck off Chile's northern coast on Tuesday night, causing landslides and sparking a tsunami alert that led to an evacuation of coastal areas.

The government reported five deaths and several serious injuries. Landslides blocked roads in some areas, power failed for thousands, an airport was damaged and several businesses caught fire. Thousands of people were spending the night sleeping rough in the hills and a tsunami advisory was issued for Hawaii out in the Pacific Ocean as waves fanned out from the epicentre.

About 300 inmates escaped from a women's prison in the city of Iquique and officials said Chile's military was sending a planeload of special forces to guard against looting.

In the city of Arica the mayor reported homes were destroyed. The quake shook modern buildings in nearby Peru and in Bolivia's high altitude capital of La Paz.

The Iquique governor, Gonzalo Prieto, told Radio Cooperativa that two people were known to have died after the quake hit at 8.46pm and several others had serious injuries. The mayor of Tarapaca attributed the deaths to heart attacks.

Hours later tsunami warnings or watches remained in effect for the coasts of Peru and Chile but were lifted for elsewhere, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said. "We regard the coast line of Chile as still dangerous, so we're maintaining the warning," geophysicist Gerard Fryer told the Associated Press.

Chilean authorities said their warning would stay in force through the night.

The US geological survey initially reported the quake at 8.0 but later upgraded the magnitude. It said the quake struck 61 miles (99km) north-west of the Chilean city of Iquique at 8.46pm, hitting a region that has been rocked by numerous quakes over the past two weeks.
At least eight strong aftershocks followed in the first few hours, including one measuring 6.2. More aftershocks and even a larger quake could not be ruled out
Some roads in northern Chile were reportedly blocked by landslides, causing traffic jams among people leaving the coast. Coastal residents of northern Chile evacuated calmly as waves measuring almost two metres (six and a half feet) struck their cities ahead of a tsunami that was expected to come ashore later

"This segment in Chile had not broken since 1877," said Allmendinger, a geology expert who has extensively studied the northern Chilean fault zone. "It had been quiet for an unusually long period of time."

But the 8.2 earthquake, which seismologists said struck about 950 miles north of Chile's capital, Santiago, wasn't powerful enough to release all the friction that had been built up in this zone, where the Nazca plate is sliding underneath the South America plate, Allmendinger said.

"It's probably not big enough to have released all of the energy that had been stored up along that locked plate boundary for the last 140 years or so," Allmendinger said. "Is this the Big One for that area? Or was it a foreshock to a presumably an even bigger earthquake?"

Scientists can't predict earthquakes, although there has been a pattern of smaller earthquakes preceding a magnitude 9.0

For instance, Allmendinger said, there were strong earthquakes before the world's most powerful temblor on record, a 9.5 earthquake off southern Chile in 1960 that killed thousands and sent damaging tsunami to Haiwaii, Japan, the Philippines and the U.S. West Coast.

And before the 2011 Japan tsunami, there was a magnitude 7.3 earthquake that turned out to be a foreshock of the magnitude 9.0 earthquake.

A number of bloggers are posting videos that show bison and other animals allegedly leaving Yellowstone National Park, prompting theories that as earthquakes ramp up the seismic activity will set off the Yellowstone supervolcano.

Two of the main bloggers behind the discussion stress that there's no way to know when the supervolcano will go off but note that the 4.8 magnitude earthquake that hit on March 30 seemed to set off a reaction from the animals, who are moving for a reason.

(Reuters) – A major earthquake of magnitude 8.0 struck off the coast of Chile on Tuesday, triggering a tsunami that hit the northern part of the country and a tsunami warning for all of South and Central America’s Pacific coast.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was very shallow, only 6.2 miles (10 km) below the seabed, and struck at 6:46 p.m. local time (0046 am BST) 62 miles (99 km) northwest of the mining port of Iquique, near the Peruvian border. The Chilean navy said the first tsunami wave had hit the coast within 45 minutes of the quake. “An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami that can strike coastlines near the epicentre within minutes and more distant coastlines within hours,” the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.
Iquique is a key copper exporting port, close to the country’s main copper mines. Mining companies Codelco and BHP Billiton said that had not yet received reports of damage to mines. The warning said that aside from Chile, the coasts of Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua were also at risk. A tsunami of up to 6.3 feet (1.92 metres) could strike the town of Pisagua, Chile, within 44 minutes of the quake, it said. In 2010, an 8.8-magnitude quake triggered a tsunami that caused major damage in several coastal towns in central-south Chile and killed hundreds of people.

Mike Rivero -- The Ukraine is ruled by Bankers puppet regime

What Really Happened Radio Show: Michael Rivero Tuesday April 1 2014: (Commercial Free Video)

Michael Rivero is the webmaster of and host of the What Really Happened radio shows on the Republic Broadcasting Network. Formerly with NASA, Michael transitioned his image processing skills (along with a brief stint as an actor) into the then-new motion picture computer animation field and has worked on films such as "Star Trek", "The Day After Tomorrow", and has supervised visual effects on "Brainscan," "LOST", and "Hawaii Five-0." Michael has taken a sabbatical from film work to focus all his efforts on peace activism. Michaels foray into blogging began before the word was even invented, and happened almost by accident when he spotted a suspicious photograph being broadcast on ABC news in 1994 related to the death of White House deputy Council Vincent Foster. Since that sudden beginning, Michaels website has expanded to cover diverse topics including the JFK assassination, the accidental shoot-down of TWA 800, election fraud, health issues, Saddams non-existent nuclear weapons, 9-11, the economy, and of course, the lies used to trick the United States into wars of conquest on Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Iran. Michael resides in Hawaii with his wife Claire, who is a composer and creates much of theme music used on the What Really Happened radio show.

The Nigel Farage Revolution , Who are you ? - Channel 4 documentary

Mr Nigel Farage has faced criticism for his recent claims that he ’admires’ Russian President Vladmir Putin, and said claiming the European Union was to blame for deaths on the streets of Kiev. Defending the comments yesterday, Mr Farage insisted: ’I said I don't like him, I wouldn't trust him, wouldn't want to live in his country. ’But compared with the kids who run foreign policy in this country I have got more respect for him than our lot.’

Stratfor's Vice President for Asia-Pacific Analysis Rodger Baker and Military Analyst Paul Floyd discuss the logic behind North Korea's recent military exercises.
"discuss the logic behind North Korea's recent military exercises."
Logic is very simple and can be stated in a single sentence: NK doesn't want war and all they're doing is staging premeditated provocations in order to grab the attention of SK & US so they can extort more food and aid from them. That's all there is to it.

Michael Lewis explains how The Stock Market is Rigged

This month marks the fifth anniversary of the current bull market on Wall Street, making it one of the longest and strongest in history. Yet U.S. stock ownership is at a record low and less than half of Americans trust banks and financial services. And in the last two weeks, the New York attorney general and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission in Washington have both launched investigations into high-frequency computerized stock trading that now controls more than half the market.
The probes were announced just ahead of a much anticipated book on the subject by best-selling author Michael Lewis called "Flash Boys." In it, Lewis argues that the stock market is now rigged to benefit a group of insiders that have made tens of billions of dollars exploiting computerized trading. The story is told through an unlikely cast of characters who figured out what was going on and have devised a plan to correct it. It could have a huge impact on Wall Street. Tonight, Michael Lewis talks about it for the first time.
Michael Lewis is not talking about the stock market that you see on television every day. That ceased to be the center of U.S. financial activity years ago, and exists today mostly as a photo op. This is the stock market that Lewis is talking about; the one where most of the trades take place now, inside hundreds of thousands of these black boxes located at more than 60 public and private exchanges, where billions of dollars in stock change hands every day with little or no public documentation. The trades are being made by thousands of robot computers, programmed to buy and sell every stock on the market at speeds 100 times faster than you can blink an eye. A system so complex, it's all but invisible.
