<(o_o)> DID CHA FEEL IT?? <(^O^)>

From what the USGS ( United States Geographical Society) states, there was an earthquake today, April 16, 2013, 12km, ENE of Luther, OK......wow!  Well, it wasn't a biggie, just 4.3 on that earthquake scale  thing-a-ma-jig!

 Earthquakes In The Region,    which gives a good explanation and all the technical data if you like to check it out.

I was surprised that they had earthquakes in that area...didn't expect it.  Was also shocked a little to feel one where I live in NYC years back. Sitting on the futon and feel it move under me...I was like WTH was that!!  LOL 

  I did know about the one in Iran that also happened today that was, 7.8, on that scale thingy.... sorry all, I just don't know the spelling but do know what it is. The  information is also there on the USGS site to read up on  Earthquake In Iran.   

 Hey, you never really know!  Earth is doing its thing!!  <(*_*)>

Erupting

Well, angry sisters  is one of the phrases used to describe the 
volcanoes, Eyjafjallajokull and Katla.  I like the  
phase form the narrator on National Geographic
better: the "Iceland 2-step".

The reason is that usually after Eyjafjallajokull erupts, 
Katla sometimes follows.  If this does happen, it would 
be nothing less than cataclysmic as stated on the Nat
Geo program I watched yesterday evening.  Katla is 
more dangerous


As stated by Carlo Piovano, Associated Press Writer
on April 20, 2010, "A Katla eruption would be 10 times stronger and shoot higher and larger plumes of ash into the air than its smaller neighbor, which has already brought European air  travel to a standstill for five days and promises severe travel delays for days more." 

When Eyjafjallajokull started it's "docile eruption in 
March/2010, (top right photo) some were relieved while others thought this was just the beginning. Then in April, 2010, a fisher opened up under the glacier, melting the ice above. What happen next is that Eyjafjallajokull exploded throwing ice, spouting fire along with rocks, boulders and ash into the atmosphere a few miles up.  

Those that took these photos did a good job capturing the awesome beauty and the volatile nature of one of 35 active Icelandic's volcanoes.  Eyjafjallajokull is just one.  To read up more on this subject, here are the links:
