Tremors at the Beach

Tremors at the Beach
March 18, 2011

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The ground shook briefly this morning, but nobody seems quite sure why.

First Coast News has received several calls, as has the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, about two tremors felt this morning around 9:30.

Sheriff's deputies are among those who reported feeling the shaking, and the Associated Press reported the tremors were felt in Flagler County as well.

A geologist at the University of Florida said nothing showed up on any earthquake detecting equipment.

The cause of the shaking is speculation at this point, but the sheriff's office said the sensation was stronger near the ocean.

No damage has been reported.

Anyone feel anything?

Didn't feel a thing.  

What worries me is the Cascadia fault.  Last quaked in 1700.  Scientist agree we are overdue for a quake.

North Africa will have its revenge.

Canary Islands, landslide of the left flank of La Palma volcano, and the annihilation of the East Coast of the USA, including ALL of Florida and north to [excuse while I go retrieve maps]...

Could not find image I saw, but this link is full of info.  Scroll down about half a page to access tsunamis on the East Coast:

(Ain't it grand that MAINE takes such an interest in tsunamis?  Will search for similar for Florida, but I'll wager there is no such site... wouldn't want to put off the tourists.)

I've felt the earth move more than once on the St. Augustine, Vilano, Crescent and Summer Haven beaches!

Re Atlantic tsunamis, the Lost City of Atlantis was sunk by one, and is now found:

The tectonic plates which are grinding together near the Azores which shifted with and underwater earthquake and washed away Lisbon Portugal with a 35' tsunami in the 18th century, could also bring a 30' tsunami to the Florida coast.  I've lost the URL but there is quite a body of research about potential Atlantic tsunamis.

A number of websites on the Disaster of 1755 in Lisbon.  Here's one, altho' garish, solid info: http://www.drgeorgepc.com/Tsunami1755Lisbon.html

(More than one kind of wave crashes at the beach!  Wink )

Portents?

Associated Press: The devastating earthquake that shook Japan caused a temporary jolt in groundwater levels throughout much of Florida, officials said.

The South Florida Water Management District reports that a network of groundwater gauges registered a jump of up to three inches in the water table from Orlando to the Florida Keys about 34 minutes after the quake struck on March 11.

The oscillations were observed for about two hours and then stabilized.

34 minutes!

Definitely connected to the tremors at the beach.

My hypothesis is that the energy pressure transmission through the earth (Super Low Frequency - SLF) vibrated opening and/or closing actions in the complex veined aquifer, including the one which erupts the millions of gallons of continuous flow fresh water off Crescent Beach, which underlies the sand dune which is Florida.

I also hypothesize that the 100 mile long oil slick which has surfaced in the Gulf of Mexico in the last couple days is also a result of the SLF dislodging of the BP spill oil which had settled at the bottom.
