At arround 5 pm (IST), I did experienced some swinging jerks, but this time I ignored these, as I was not feeling well. Most of my family membes are suffering with viral cough and I was in fever yesterday, that is why, I just ignored it.

The big question of concern is the short frequency with which Earthquakes are shaking different parts of Earth and I know the major cause of it. Is it mendable? I don’t know, but we can curb our activity atleast… Untill the world listen…….. its of no value….

The devastation shown in 2012 movie, now seems having very much a likelyhood of turning into reality…… while we see everything sorrounding us is normal, it is just a matter of chance that it will struck everywhere… It is now evident the earthquakes are now occuring near equater and in more in lower half of globe……..

Earthquake Tremors on consecutive days same direction N to S

I have been sensing very low intensity earthquake tremors since yesterday. Just three time since yesterday evening. The tremors that I was able to analyze for direction (western-North to eastern-South) first at 18:23 Hours IST (+5:30 GMT) on 11th January, 2010 and the second significant tremor today i.e. 12th January, 2010 at 15:04 Hrs IST (+5:30 GMT). These tremors are of very weak intensity and I have searched Google a few days back and found out that California and Japan are having Earthquakes. For more details on direction of tremors, see picture here below.
