A strong earthquake from a safe distance took place at the Fiji Islands measuring 5.9 on the Richter scale. The earthquake took place at a depth of 23 kilometers, with no report of damages to buildings or loss of life.

Another active region for earthquakes has been the solomon islands, with an earthquake measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale for today. No reports of damages to buildings or loss of life in this tremor, which had a depth of 96.3.

Here is a list of magnitude 5.0 or greater earthquakes for 5/7/2013 according to the U.S Geological Survey:

Volcanic Activity

We have some interesting volcanic activity to report today, as a small phreatic eruption took place at the Mayon Volcano high above the summit with ash in the west-northwest of the volcano.In the past 8 hour period, a minor rockfall event was detected by the Mayon siesmic network.

At the time small eruptions and small steam explosions could take place at any moment, so the public is being cautioned to remain from entering into the 6-kilometer area of the volcano.
The bad news to report out of this particular volcano, is the death of 5 people who were injured when the Mayon Volcano spewed ash, reaching 500 meters above its crater on Tuesday morning.


River Turns Blood Red In Henan China



Officials are still trying to figure out what caused a river to turn blood red in the Henan province of China, as local citizens noticed the eerie shade of the river on Friday turn blood red.

Officials in the region state that a 3-kilometer-long section of the river has turned blood red, but pollution levels were normal.

According to the tests that were run, only domestic sewage and no excessive heavy metals were found in the water. No companies were manufacturing dyes in or around the river. At the present time, the river water is being pumped into a water treatment plant.

An incident similar to this has been described long ago in texts such as the bible, and to some, this is a sign of the times from above. However, there is also a possibility that celestial body nearby could be giving off red iron oxide dust as it makes its approach.

This celestial body that has become popular on the internet is named planet X, and according to those who research planet X, and supposedly channel aliens, red iron oxide dust could be the cause of some of the other rivers in the world that have turned blood-red.

What is interesting about this most recent story of a river turning blood-red is that the cause cannot be explained, which leaves room for speculation. Here is what Nancy Lieder has to say about the rivers turning blood-red in China, quote:

“Continuing analysis of this event concludes NOT dye, NOT red tide, NOT chemical spill, NOT landslide from earthquakes, and NOT a result of heavy rains two weeks earlier. Leaving a waft of the tail of Planet X the likely cause!…

Inevitably, there is a great deal of speculation as to the cause of this change in colour, ranging from a “red tide” algal bloom (unlikely as this is marine phenomenon), pollution such as a toxic chemical spill (also unlikely given the scale – the Yangtze is a huge river at this point, such that this would need to be a huge input of chemicals), the Yunnan earthquake (again unlikely given the location of the affected area), or sediment generated by soil erosion and landslides. 

By far the mostly likely cause of the change of colour is a large-scale input of iron-rich sediment to the river.  It is notable that a large flood wave passed down the river last week, caused by heavy rainfall in Sichuan Province.  This was reportedly the largest flood wave for two decades.  Thus, I would hypothesise that the intense rainfall caused extensive sediment mobilisation both in terms of landslides on slopes and debris already in the river, and that this has caused the change in water colour.

Of great interest to me is the question of where this sediment mobilisation occurred.  One leading candidate might be the Wenchuan Earthquake area, where we know that very large quantities of sediment were released from the slopes.  Could it be that this is the main part of that sediment plume passing downstream?  If so, I am surprised that it has taken so long, but it could be that a portion of the sediment has been stored in the channel and only mobilised during this extreme rainfall event.

@p12 yes red dust already in the soil, the “red clay” breaking up and dumping into the river, is my guess. Of course, the red in the red clay is FROM the tail of Planet X in the past. Red clay in Australia, SE United States, China, Africa, etc – all from prior dumps. As Velikovsky noted:” –

 Interesting to say the least…

 Fireball Streaks Across The Sky In Japan

Recently there has been a slight up-tick in fireballs to report for May, and overall, we are set to outpace the amount of fireballs reported in 2010. Here is a screenshot shot of some of the 90+ fireball reports, which continues to rise.




Will we see another fireball injure more people and damage buildings in the near future? Is planet X causing this increase space rocks hitting the earth?

Sinkhole In San Francisco

The last article of the day is a report of a monster 15 foot wide sinkhole that shut down an intersection in San Francisco’s Richmond District Monday evening, according

to a utilities spokesman. The sinkhole cause according to officials is an old sewer line that should have been repaired.
