There was a minor earthquake that measured at magnitude 3.8 in southern Alaska today. The epicenter was estimated to be located 42 miles south-southeast of Chuathbaluk, 48 miles southeast of Aniak, 297 miles west of Anchorage Alaska.
The time of the quake was 3:57 a.m 3:47 a.m AKST/4/:47 a.m PST.
There was no damages to report, or expected.
“The earth’s most active seismic feature, the circum-Pacific seismic belt, brushes Alaska and the Aleutian Islands, where more earthquakes occur than in the other 49 States combined,” mentioned the
“From 1899 to 1969, eight earthquakes of magnitude 8 or more on the Richter scale occurred in Alaska,” the agency said. “Four caused extensive property damage and topographic changes; four centered in areas with no nearby towns, and, except for being recorded by seismographs, went relatively unnoticed.”
A 3.9 earthquake hit southern San Diego county today, at 1:37 p.m. Pacific time at a depth of 0.6 miles.
According to the USGS, the epicenter was 19 miles from Borrego Springs, 43 miles from El Centro and 54 miles from San Diego.
In just the last 10 days, there have been two earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 and greater centered nearby.
Here is a list of magnitude 5.0+ earthquakes according to the USGS.gov:

There is increased activity at Chile’s Capahue volcano, as Chile’s Biobio area began spewing ash and gas early on Saturday, but officials say it’s still in an early eruption stage.
Chile’s Mining Minister Hernan de Solminihac say the volcano’s smoke plume led Argentine emergency officials to issue a yellow alert and constantly monitor the activity of the volcano, just in case tehre was an eruption.
Flights are expected to pass by the area around the volcano have been warned.
Officials say there’s no need yet to evacuate people near the volcano, which is part of the Andes mountian chains.
There was a volcano that erupted in Chile last year, forcing the cancellation of hundreds of flights and the evacuation of more than 600 people.
According To Researchers Hawaii’s Islands Are Dissolving
Researchers at the Brigham Young University are saying that the Hawaiin Islands are slowly dissolving. In the near future Oahu’s Koolau and Waianae mountains will
dwindle to little more than a flat, low-lying island like Midway. While the erosian is certainaly a guilty party, researchers contend that the mountains of Oahu are, in fact, dissolving from within.
There were several months spent collecting samples of groundwater and stream water to determine which source removed more mineral material. They also put to use surface water estimates from the U.S Geological Survey to calculate the
Quantity of mass that vanished from the island each year.
Many researchers point out that Oahu is actually rising in elevation at a slow but steady rate because of the plate tectonics.
“The Big Island is so large that it actually depresses the ocean crust–kind of like a dimple on a golf ball,” BYU geologist Steve Nelson told The Science Recorder via email. “Oahu is close enough to the Big Island such that as the plate drifts to the northwest, Oahu is moving up and out of the side of the dimple. Kauai is far enough away (and older) that it has moved out of the dimple. The estimate of the duration of rising is based on the time it will take for Oahu to drift to where Kauai is now.”
Even though most of the media is down playing the end of the world, and the mayan calendar, the earth changes will continue. We are not giving any clear date, or that you will see something in the sky, however, you will see increased earthquake activity, volcanic activity, meteors, and other earth changes moving forward.
There has to be a reason why the mainstream media is trying to down play the end of the world. If you search Google news, and click on the science tab you will see a long list of news articles making fun of the doomsday predictions, on Dec 21st, 2012. The reason why we believe this is happening is to get people to be relaxed when it comes to family preperadness, and make it seem like nothing is wrong with earth.
If you are reading this, we are guessing that is not you, and we hope our readers take preventive measures, just in case something catastrophic does happen.
