Mount Etna, one of the word’s most active volcanoes, sparked fears of a fiery eruption on Thursday after a rapid succession of powerful tremors rocked the fiery mountain. Residents of the ancient city of Catania on the eastern shores of Sicily were struck with panic after three quakes rattled Etna within 5 minutes.

Etna volcano only sits 18 miles from the coastal town. Its southern slopes were rocked by three shallow tremors – depths between zero and two km – in the early morning hours of March 8, 2018.

The strongest quake was a M3.3 and struck around 9.50am local time just over 4 miles north of Ragalna, a small commune southeast of Palermo.

Just a minute prior to it, in the same area, a magnitude 2.8 tremor was detected just before a M2.5 quake was felt across the region.

Mount Etna is a classic example of a stratovolcano towering over the eastern part of Sicily at a height of 3,350m and is one of the volcanoes with the longest historic records of eruptions, going back more than 2000 years.

The Mount Etna quakes come off the back of the Philippines volatile Mount Mayon erupting on Thursday morning.

  1. Today, I found out that, on USGS earthquake map with all magnitudes, M2.3 tremor with depth 27.5km JUST UNDER MICROSOFT HEADQUARTER CAMPUS on Redmond, Washington. I know this area very well because I had lived there for 10 years, and my missing husband had been worked in Windows Group right there. Of course, under Microsoft campus, there are huge underground cities and bases. Right on Microsoft Campus, there are some secret buildings including a building shape is swastika (=Nazi symbol) where they are doing child sacrifice rituals.

    All people over the manager class are reptilians. Many of them even do not have computer degree or computer knowledge. What they are doing is watching and controlling human slave computer workers. Even they earn over $80,000 a year, they barely afford to buy a house around there because the house price are all set up extremely expensive. A small shack on a small lot like 0.09 acre costs over a half million dollars. So basically, if you work on Microsoft Campus, you end up to be a slave of home mortgage.

    Bill Gates, his wife Melinda Gates, and Steve Ballmer are all human eater reptilians (=Draconians). Bill Gates and his wife has own torture chamber. They get those babies for child sacrifice from their own organization, Planned Parenthood. They promise pregnant women for good adoption, but all their babies end up in satanic child sacrifice. In those torture chamber in Bill Gates mansion, Bill and Melinda use tools like monkey wrench and ball-pein hammer to torture and dissemble babies bodies. I cannot say anymore because some witness mentioned who they were doing is so gruesome. But he told me that those babies end up into the fire pit in the end. Those reptilians believe “The more kill babies, the more power they can get from devils.”. Melinda Gates has graduated famous witch school around that area. If you see the image of Steve Ballmer, you can realize that he is NOT a human because his skin head is too BIG!

    What is Microsoft? They are spyware manufacture company. Jewish guy told me “We are going to concur the world with Microsoft Windows. We can spy and control information on the net.” That is why I don’t recommend you to do Windows Update. I have set up my windows NOT to do Windows Update. If you do Windows Update periodically, your computer’s spyware has been updated and more powerful. We really need to avoid anything from Microsoft, especially operation system.

    My missing husband stole something very important from Microsoft when he was fired. Since then, those Microsoft agents entered our house to search the stolen CD from them. But a police nor an investigator form FBI has never come to our house because, you know?, that CD my missing husband stole from Microsoft was the software of ID THEFT! Yes, they have the software so that they can steal your money from your bank account.

    • Sorry, I forgot to write the tremor’s coordinates 47.680°N 122.149°W. Yes, just beside the Microsoft headquarter campus in Redmond, Washington.

  2. Wow and I thought I wrote huge paragraphs! ? Well it looks pretty really suspicious that within the years of 2021 to 2024. That a volcano eruption #5 or # 7 level would or might happen would block out the sun adding another .05 degree drop in Celsius over whatever length of so called eruption. IT is even stronger when the volcano is near the equator as ash goes up into both hemispheres.
