More than 150 tremors have hit Vancouver Island in the last 24 hours, and seismologists are monitoring the situation to see if it turns into an Episodic Tremor and Slip event. These events add pressure to the locked Cascadia Subduction Zone fault.
Vancouver Island is normally moving toward the Lower Mainland at a rate of about one centimetre per year. But every 14 months or so there is a Tremor and Slip event, when Vancouver Island slips backwards a few millimetres towards Japan. Seismic recording instruments show Victoria moving in one direction and then changing direction for about two weeks during these episodes. These events add pressure to the locked Cascadia Subduction Zone fault.
“It involves tiny tremors that we can record. They are not earthquakes. People don’t feel these shaking events. But we can easily record them over many seismic stations at the same time,” said Cassidy. “It looks like a train or a rumbling.”
You can see the energy building up slowly and then dropping off slowly, says Cassidy. It’s not a typical earthquake signature. It’s more of a rumbling vibration sort of signal.
The tremors are recorded and mapped out, to show where the slip is taking place. It helps to identify the locked portion of the subduction fault where all the energy is being stored for future earthquakes.
“This is a really important piece of information to help us understand the subduction zone where these big earthquakes are more likely to occur,” said Cassidy. “It doesn’t help us predict when an earthquake will occur, though.”
Due to the fact that Episodic Tremor and Slip events give a slight nudge to a locked fault, it is a period of slightly higher hazard but Cassidy assures that it is not a huge change.
“It is similar to driving in slightly heavier traffic than you normally would. There might be slightly more risk,” said Cassidy. “Bottom line is that we live in a subduction zone where earthquakes can happen at any time. These tremors are a reminder to us that we do live in an active zone and to be prepared.”
So now the big question is where this energy will be stored on the major and destructive Cascadia Fault zone!

Warning !!! Fast-moving river of lava flows from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano
Today’s seismographs all over the world have very active movement. Today is the Summer Solstice that we are going to have more higher frequency (=vibration) on the Earth. More energy is coming into the Earth from outer space and Sun movement. This energy might be the reason that we have more active vibrations on the Earth.

After the huge floods stroke many parts of the US including the cities of Texas at Mexican boarder, Trump finally changed his mind to end Mexican family separation. He signed this executive order on Wednesday morning.
Trump signs executive order to end family separation
“US President Donald Trump signed an executive order ending the practice of separating children from their families in detention centers for illegal immigrants. The order will likely be challenged in court, however.”
Flooding Breaks Dam in Wisconsin
There are so many floods all over the world everyday! You cannot see those information very much on your TV news. They do not want you to know something is going on, and the Earth is changing.

Even I live in north Alabama, I see many logging trucks passing highway 247. Some places are completely deforested in the Wildlife Management Area. Who is managing and own the Wildlife Management Area? What is the purpose of the Wildlife Management Area? It is really suspicious. Wildlife = Reptilian life = Reptilian Underground Base?

“Experts say the long-term drought and sunbaked soil compounded the water’s impact as more than a foot of rain triggered flash floods from McAllen to Mercedes, Texas.”
You know? McAllen is the city with facilities with Mexican young people inside the cages.

This flood is obviously an attack from Galactic Federation of Light. Galactic Federation of Light does not like this Government giving Mexican young people to the organization of human trafficking. They might end up in the Human Meat factories and Blood Sacrifice for reptilians who needs human blood to keep their human figures.

Look at Intellicast radar right now! Click the Layers, then temperature. You can see -40 degree on the Gulf of Mexico near boarder between Louisiana and Texas. Around there, water temperature are 84 & 86 degree. Why the temperature is -40? Something is going on around there. I have never seen -40 on Gulf of Mexico where water temperature is quite high like hot springs.
