6.1 magnitude earthquake hits Papua, Indonesia: one more sign ‘day of reckoning’ fast approaching


Major earthquakes in and around Indonesia over the last 90 days are indication stresses in the region are intensifying
September 8, 2012 INDONESIA - A moderately strong earthquake has hit eastern Indonesia, causing panic among residents, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. No tsunami warning was issued. The U.S. Geological Survey says the 6.1-magnitude quake struck off the eastern province of Papua. It says it was fairly shallow, just 20 kilometers beneath the sea, which often causes more shaking than deeper quakes. Witnesses said shocked residents and hotel guests in Nabire town ran outside screaming. Indonesia’s meteorology and geophysics agency said there was no danger of a tsunami. Indonesia has frequent earthquakes because of its location on the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” an arc of volcanoes and fault lines encircling the Pacific Basin. –The Australian
Indonesia: Increasing seismicity, growing volcanic unrest, and the largest intra-plate strike-slip earthquakes ever recorded (April 11), are all indications seismic unrest and agitation along tectonic plates is intensifying around Indonesia. The day of reckoning is approaching. The country is home to more than 136 active volcanoes, including about 76 of which are said to have erupted during the Holocene period. The turbulent geology both in and around Indonesia, has placed the region in the cross-hairs of the geologic dynamism and change stirring across the planet. The chances of another VEI 7 Tambora-type eruption occurring in the near future, from a volcano somewhere in the Indonesian archipelago volcanic chain, are also high. Such a large-scale volcanic eruption today would have devastating and almost incalculable consequences on most of the world. –The Extinction Protocol
