India Dropping

As a primary player in the plate movements predicted by the Zetas, India must continue to plunge under the Himalayas. The Indo-Australian Plate is called the brake point for all other plate movements. When it moves, a domino effect takes place, allowing sinking of the plate tongue holding Indonesia, a folding of the Philippine and Mariana plates, and further compression of the Pacific.

ZetaTalk Prediction 9/9/2010: The 7 of 10 scenarios describe plate movements, and for this to occur something has to release the deadlock, the current stalemate where the plates are locked against each other. Once the deadlock is broken and the plates start moving, sliding past each other, new points where the plates are locked against each other develop, but these are weaker locks than the one at present. The current lock, as we have so often stated, is the Indo-Australian Plate which is being driven under the Himalayans. This is no small lock, as the height of the Himalayans attests.

Recently, it was obvious further tilting of the India Plate occurred. Cracking and crumbling occurred in Sikkim in the Himalayas. Sinking and incursion of sea water occurred in Bangladesh and in Udupi on the west coast of India. A huge ground crack appeared in central India in Nanded. And a methane explosion in a mine near Quetta, Pakistan. Clearly, the plate is moving!

Indian Sliding Under the Himalayas!
March 8, 2011
The vibrations have caused many of the areas to sink down. In this connection, he made a pointed reference to the severe damages faced by the people of Dipudara village in East Sikkim due to water leakages and seepages along the Tunnel and surge shaft area of NHPC Stage V resulting in land slippage, land cracks and building sinking and damages. The Primary School building at Dipudara though constructed by NHPC had again cracked and now being run in a rented building. These speak of the severity of the damages.
Vast Areas Flooded by Tidal Water
March 21, 2011
The embankment collapsed giving way to tidal water which submerged the three villages. In Patuakhali, low-lying areas of three upazilas went under saline water due to tidal surge, reports our correspondent.
Huge Waves Rising Abnormally
March 23, 2011
Udupi : The recent disaster of Tsunami in Japan has scared the people living in the coastal regions of Karnataka, as a sudden rise in the sea level was witnessed on Tuesday. Apart from the constant rise and fall in the sea level, the waves were very huge and stormy, as one gets to see in the rainy season. High tide was witnessed in places like Mattu, Uchhila, Padukere, Kaup, Udyavar and Muloor areas in the district. The high tides seem to have increased the water level of the streams too. The residents residing near these streams had to stay awake to keep a track of the changing conditions. As water level at Kaup Light House rose by over a metre, the local youths kept themselves prepared for facing the possibility of floods. However, the rise in the sea level is considered normal during the new moon day and full moon day, but the disturbances in the sea since the last two days have created a situation where people living near the coast have fled from their homes, after observing the huge waves rising abnormally.
500 Tremors Leave Nanded Residents in the Grip of Fear
March 20, 2011
With 500 incidences of tremors since 2007 -highest being 3.17 on Richter scale two weeks ago - the local administration apprehensive that if it crosses 5 on Richter scales, it could cause damage to the human lives and property. After 39 shocks in barely two hours on March 3, 2011 led to the apprehension among the people who spent two sleepless nights.
Death toll in Pakistan Mine Explosion Rises to 21
March 20, 2011
A senior mining official says rescue workers have recovered 15 more bodies from a coal mine in southwestern Pakistan that caved in after a methane gas explosion, raising the death toll to 21. The mine, which is located in Baluchistan province, was declared dangerous two weeks ago, but the warning was ignored. The mine is 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of the provincial capital, Quetta.

Sunda Plate Analysis

Why is sinking irregular on the plate tongue holding Indonesia, also known as the Sunda Plate? Java has been very heavily affected. At first it was the northern coast, then the southern, and now Java is crumbling as well. Yet Timur to the east seemed relatively unaffected.

The east coast of the Malay peninsula was early affected, then the east coast of Sumatra, then the west coast of the Malay peninsula and Sumatra. Why in that order?

The center of the Philippines was early affected, and has had follow-on sinking, but Manila and the island of Luzon are almost entirely unaffected. The upper west coast of the island of Borneo, primarily the Malaysia portion, has had reports, but southern Borneo seemed exempt. The Indonesian islands on the Banda sub-plate were early affected, but the islands just north of this sub-plate on the Molucca sub-plate only lately starting to sink.

The airports in Jakarta, where the elevation is 34 feet, is still in operation though is undoubtedly has seawalls against tides. Yet in Java, there are continuing reports of sinking in the region, on all sides of Jakarta. Singapore airport is approximately 20 feet above sea level, and still in business though an island offshore from Singapore is admittedly sinking. On March 5, 2011 the Zetas stated we were 10 weeks into perhaps 15 weeks of sinking for the region.

ZetaTalk Prediction 3/5/2011: When plate undulation started promptly after the plate tongue holding Indonesia started to sink, we informed the public. On December 31, 2010 in fact, before the year's end. Prior to that, we had stated the sinking would take 2-3 weeks. It is now at 10 weeks, and counting. Plate undulation is not something that stops, once it starts, as momentum is involved. Sinking only commences, again, when the curve of the Indo-Australian Plate under Sumatra and Java lifts, which is only part of the undulation process, a minority of the time. Where the lift lasts for a days or two at most, the period of time when the curve is pressed down again lasts for a week. Thus, sinking could be assumed to be in process only 1/5 of the time, 2-3 weeks thus taking 10-15 weeks, and this pace assuming no other interference with the sinking process is involved.

Looking at the Sunda Plate, the seafloor is uneven, at places smooth, at places rumpled. An accordion process was described in late 2010, when Bangkok experienced sinking but a new island emerged near Bali, as presented in Issue 211 of this newsletter. Does this have something to do with the uneven pace of sinking?

ZetaTalk Analysis 3/26/2011: As can be seen, the plate tongue holding Indonesia, often called the Sunda Plate, is considered to have many micro-plates as part of its structure. This stands as evidence of the beating this region has taken, regularly, during prior pole shifts. Just as the Coral Sea region of the Indo-Australian Plate flexes, and the center of Australia is expected to flex, rock strata forming a plate may flex, while not entirely breaking away. This part may push up, that tilt, and another sink during any adjustments, but in the end, all hold together. Thus, as Nancy has noted, and as her newsletter reports with attendant articles have shown, sinking occurred early on the Banda sub-plate, while the Timor and the Molucca Sea sub-plates were resilient until very recently.

Like the head of a hammer being brought down, Java takes the brunt of the push under the curve of the Indo-Australian Plate. The degree of crumbling this island is experiencing during the past couple weeks shows the pressure, as more than the intrusion of sea water is being experienced. Crushing is being experienced. The southern portion of Borneo has been holding because it is housed on a very solid part of the plate tongue, like the handle of the hammer. Java is not only being pushed down, it is bending down. The Philippines are at a place on the tongue where the plate is trying to deal with the pressure from the Pacific by sagging down in the center of the Philippines. This particular sag also affects the northwestern portion of the island of Borneo, which has experienced early sinking.

Our early predictions for the sinking of the tongue were for a sinking that would occur suddenly, accompanied by tsunami heading north toward the Philippines and the south China coastline. This may still occur! We described the sinking of the tongue as a process that would start out slowly, then pick up the pace. The sinking is less than half what would be expected, at the date of this writing on March 20, 2011 which is equivalent to week 12. And where the sinking has not been uniform, it will continue to show discrepancies. When we gave estimates of 80, 60, 40, and 20 feet we were certainly not being precise for any given location. Some places will be to that level, and others where buckling has occurred will have less sinking. This is still coming, and has not been canceled!

Americas Cracking

An epidemic of cracks is appearing around the world. The Zetas summarized the 7 of 10 scenarios as plate movement. The 7 of 10 scenarios have completed in the tipping sideways of India so that the Indus River valley sank 10 feet, but are still in process in the sinking of the plate tongue holding Indonesia and the folding of the Mariana and Philippine Plates. The scenarios are yet to accelerate in earnest in S America and the Caribbean. But signs of stress are appearing in the form of cracks and crevasses, which show the stress the plates are under. This was addressed recently in Issue 232 of this newsletter, where cracks had appeared in Peru, Pakistan, and the Philippines.

In N America the N American Plate is being pulled into a bow by the expanding Atlantic, which is primarily expanding at the Equator. This bow causes the Aleutian Islands to pull toward the tip of Mexico, creating a cracking point at San Diego, expanding to the east, north, and south as the tension increases. This tension will not be relieved until the New Madrid adjustment occurs. The Zetas have described this tension the N American continent is under as reaching all the way to the Mississippi.

ZetaTalk Prediction 3/12/2011: Will the New Madrid just suddenly rip with our predicted magnitude 9 quake? Hardly. There will be a progression of quakes in the magnitude 4-5 range all along the New Madrid fault line, which runs up to the Great Lakes and thence along the seaway. The bow will become more stressed, cracking rock inland from San Diego all the way to the Mississippi, and forcing adjustments north and south of this point too, from the Aleutian Islands to the tip of Mexico. Sinkholes and crevasses will proliferate throughout the US in her stretch zones, in a swath that ranges from the New England states south to the tip of Florida and all points west. This is a large bow. Then quakes will increase to the point of being considered magnitude 6-7 along the long New Madrid fault line and its attendant splinters. The New Madrid adjustment will thus not sneak up on you, but will be well announced.

Landslips are unusual for Everett, Washington. This is new! Everett is on a bluff above Puget Sound where the Juan de Fuca Plate is subducting under the N American Plate.

Everett Neighborhood is Sinking
March 18, 2011
People living in the Valley View neighborhood of southeast Everett are waiting and watching. A two story house on their block is tilted at a 20 degree angle and could collapse at any moment. Recent heavy rains has caused the sliding to accelerate in the neighborhood. Neighbors said the problem appears to be getting much worse.

Where landslips occur in California during the rainy season, due to slippery clay soil layers, this latest slip in Ventura, California near LA was not blamed on the rain. Signs of increasing stress in the bow very evident.

Landslide Forces Evacuation of Ranch
March 19, 2011
A landslide near the small town of Somis in Ventura County forced the evacuation of a residence and several horses. According to the Ventura County Star, a piece of land about 200 yards long and 100 yards deep moved downhill about 100 feet on a ranch located in the 7600 block of Bradley Road. A residence and 63 horses were being moved. The landslide started around 6:30 a.m. A local property manager reported seeing trees falling and sliding on a hillside and contacted the Fire Department. The cause of the landslide was not immediately known.

In S America the pace of mountain building along the Andes is increasing. A large crack appeared in Peru recently, as mentioned in Issue 232 of this newsletter, and Bolivia, as mentioned in Issue 231 of this newsletter. Now additional signs of stress at the bend point in S America have appeared in Villa Rivero. S America is bending in the middle, to some degree, as the southern part is held in place by the great Pacific Plate, while the northern part is rolling over the Nazca Plate.

Cracks Alarmed at Villa Rivero
March 15, 2011
After the fire that emanated, in 2010, on a farm in Villa Felicidad, in the vicinity of Villa Rivero, have now begun to appear where deep cracks. The appearance of cracks in the vicinity of Villa Rivero, 60 kilometers from the city, going on three months of the demonstration of an underground fire that destroyed an area of approximately 50 meters. The fire that lasted for over a month was attributed to the remnants of an ancient swamp.

Moving north along the Andes, more cracking in the Santander region of Colombia. This is mountain building along the N Andes fault line. Yet another village destroyed, roads inaccessible, suddenly occurring. The S America roll staged to occur.

Santander Emergency Collapse of Houses and Farms
March 20, 2011
The municipal authorities began the evacuation of at least 50 houses in the sector which are partially destroyed and about to collapse. A school in this rural area also collapsed. Virtually the entire village is sinking. It takes a lot more help, especially a helicopter to lift people out, because the access roads to a safe place were destroyed.

A new front on land movement in the precursors to the S America roll opened in Venezuela as well, which will be pushed over the Caribbean Plate as the hump of S America rolls. Caracas is on the coastline, the sliding edge along the border with the Caribbean Plate as the Zetas describe.

Limited Step Along the Path of the Caracas-La Guaira Road
March 15, 2011
The gauge of the Caracas-La Guaira highway was built five years ago, as a provisional way by the collapse of Viaduct No. 1, does not serve its function for which it was intended, because all along its length of 2.4 km length is limited by landslides and subsidence. In the section on Caracas-La Guaira sense there have been landslides disable a channel of movement, defenses no longer exist by the existing boundary faults, the three thousand meters of protective mesh were placed on slopes in the first few meters are not and those that remain are completely destroyed.

ZetaTalk Prediction 10/9/2010: Those living along the border of S America and the hapless Caribbean Plate will experience a great moaning and grinding while the S American Plate glides over the Caribbean Plate, pushing it down with its weight as it does so. Such a gliding action does have catch points where the plates are not smooth, and hesitation and jerking with a sudden release occurs, a type of earthquake that seems to last for most of an hour. Caracas as all of Venezuela will experience this seemingly continuous quake, which will approach a magnitude 8 in strength at times.
