Powerful, Deep 6.7 Earthquake Rattles Northern Argentina, Near Chile-Bolivia Border

Earthquake Damage - Cracks In The Earth

The U.S. Geological Survey says three earthquakes, with the largest measuring in at 6.7, have struck in the same fault zone over the last 12 hours rattling Chile, Argentina and Bolivia.

The first quake struck at 11:11 p.m. PST Tuesday with a magnitude 4.5 near the Chilean town of Santa Cruz, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) southwest of the capital, Santiago.

The second quake with a magnitude 5.1 struck at 5:01 a.m. PST Wednesday in northern Argentina, 53 miles (85 kilometers) northwest of San Antonio de los Cobres.

  1. The question on everyone’s minds in an area subject to quakes is what caused it to happen?
    Michael has articles out there concerning Earthquakes and Volcanoes becoming active all over the place in recent years.
    Something is causing geology that has been inactive for a long time to suddenly start back up with Volcanoes and Earthquakes.
    That this one is far south of the equator is also interesting.
    The crowd of amateurs out there must be having a field day.
    12th Planet people point to the Dark Star Theory and the assumption we may be close to a high gravity brown dwarf approaching from the South Pole area. Or Planet X is likely to be coming close in an extremely comet-like orbit about 50 degrees off the majority of planets orbits around the Sun. By close we are by their theory looking at an event where it comes in as far as Saturn.
    Sorry to disappoint. The likelyhood is that Star is as far from the Sun as it is likely to get. It would be due around 3,500 AD not 2015.
    Which leaves the alternative that they are all wrong as to where it is in its orbit.
    Or there is a Jupiter-sized maverick planet about twice the distance of Pluto out there and it is coming in faster than anyone might anticipate given the Infrared Telescopes we have right now. None of which can find anything, much less something dark and huge out there.
    The main reason that I can see for such an event would be if it is traveling around the Sun in an orbit directly opposite to the orbits of every planet known. I think that because Venus exists. Venus disobeys just about every rule for a planet out there.
    So if something was coming in like I describe it would be invisible on the plates because from one plate to another it would be traveling in the opposite direction to anything they are looking for. That is all hype. No one really knows or if they did they are not telling.
    Alpha Centuri has 3 stars. It is 4.5 light years away. One of which is a Dwarf orbiting way out of the regular Solar System of our neighbor. There are dwarfs orbiting other stars in our neighborhood of around 10-20 light years away. So it is a real possibility.
    Our own solar system is full of evidence of violent events in the far past.
    We happen to have one of the thinnest outer crusts(land) in the Solar System.
    All of which may be responsible for the Earthquakes and Volcanoes starting to erupt with no obvious outer cause at all. It simply may all be coming to a head as the continents drift apart. It is all coincidence. Right?
