    A candidate running for Senate in New Jersey was ruthlessly goaded on social media after claiming the “climate crisis” was to blame for the Friday earthquake that rocked the tri-state area. Green Party member Christina Amira Khalil shared the controversial message just minutes after the quake, which was the strongest temblor to strike near the Big Apple in 140 years. “I experienced my first earthquake in NJ. We never get earthquakes. The climate crisis is real. The weirdest experience ever,” Khalil wrote on X.

  • Can climate change make rare northeast earthquakes more common? Experts weigh in

    NBC News NY ^ | April 5, 2024 | By Linda Gaudino (D-NBC)
    Earthquakes on the East Coast are rare but sea level rise and frequent flooding may lead to a higher frequency of quakes. But here's why you shouldn't be alarmed. "An earthquake is based on tectonic plates, and New York is sitting on a 'lazy' plate, which is good, meaning we do not have so many earthquakes, but there are other things that happen -- too much rain or drought," Dr. Marsellos told NBC New York. Long periods of flooding can cause water levels to rise leading to possible landslides. Those slides can "lubricate" faults and may account for a higher...

    Good morning, C&C family, it’s Friday! This morning’s post tumbles down the Great American Eclipse rabbit hole, with at least one wild, rarely-mentioned conspiracy theory surviving scrutiny; and the next 100-year pandemic has probably not arrived 96 years early, in spite of what the media wants you to believe. This morning I gave in to the eclipse hype — everyone else is talking about it. I put it all under a skeptical microscope, but at least one conspiracy theory remained not easily explained. Let’s begin with Forbes’ spooky story yesterday, headlined “Here’s Why The Total Solar Eclipse Has Prompted States...

    A magnitude 4.8 earthquake shook the coast of the northeastern United States on Friday morning. The earthquake was felt from Boston down to Baltimore, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Many incoming flights at major airports in and around New York City were being diverted from landing, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. New York Gov. Kathy Hochul in a tweet said, “My team is assessing impacts and any damage that may have occurred, and we will update the public throughout the day.”

    A 4.8-magnitude earthquake shook the New York City area Friday morning, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). The epicenter of the earthquake was in Lebanon, N.J., according to USGS. New York Gov.

    It was a terrible quake that struck near Hualien City, Taiwan, just as the workday was beginning on Wednesday. Details aren't yet complete but, so far, nine people have been reported killed, over a thousand more injured, and 152 trapped in damaged buildings, quarries, and other places. At 7.4 on Richter Scale, the Hualien shifter was three times more powerful and released 5.6 times more energy than the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake that dropped part of San Francisco's elevated Embarcadaro freeway, killed 63 people, and injured 3,757 more. “It was pretty scary,” a visiting American told NBC News. “In all...

Soon after the disaster, Beijing’s Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council offered the island disaster assistance. In response, Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council said in a short statement there was no need for the mainland to help. “We noticed that...

    State Farm plans to not renew roughly 72,000 property and commercial apartment policies in California starting this summer, the company announced Wednesday. About 30,000 of the affected policies will be for homeowner, rental, residential community association and business owner insurance. The other approximately 42,000 will be for commercial apartment policies. ... It was California’s largest property insurer in 2022 ... The decision follows the company’s announcement in May that it would stop accepting new applications for property and business policies. At the time, State Farm cited higher construction costs, a growing risk from catastrophic events, such as wildfires, and challenges...
  • What Kinds of Seismic Signals Did Swifties Send at LA Concert?

    13 March 2024–Seattle may have experienced its own Swift Quake last July, but at an August 2023 concert Taylor Swift’s fans in Los Angeles gave scientists a lot of shaking to ponder. After some debate, a research team led by Gabrielle Tepp of Caltech concluded that it was likely the dancing and jumping motions of the audience at SoFi Stadium—not the musical beats or reverberations of the sound system—that generated the concert’s distinct harmonic tremors. In their study in Seismological Research Letters, Tepp and colleagues show how they were able to identify the seismic signature of individual songs and determine...

    Scientists have detected a 'great swarm' of earthquakes off the coast of Washington clocking as many as 200 in a single hour during one day. Geologists at the University of Washington said the quakes could lead to the Juan de Ruca Ridge erupting within a few weeks or years - but the effects are believed to be mild and not likely impact anyone on land. The underwater volcano sits more than 16,000 feet below the Pacific Ocean and about 150 miles off the coast of Washington. With more than a thousand tiny quakes detected in one day, this is the...

  • Red Spouter, Yellowstone’s Multi-Personality Thermal, Created By 1959 Earthquake

    Cowboy State Daily ^ | February 25, 2024 | Andrew Rossi
    Created by a 7.3-magnitude earthquake in 1959, Yellowstone's Red Spouter is a thermal with many personalities. Depending on the season, it can be a hot spring, a boiling mudpot or it can just spew hot gas. Many of Yellowstone National Park’s thermal features are defined by their personalities. The regularity of Old Faithful, the colossal noise and steam clouds of Steamboat Geyser or the colorful palette of the Artists’ Paintpots. By that logic, the Red Spouter might be Yellowstone's most ambitious. Instead of building a reputation around a single personality, it tries to — and succeeds at — being many...
