Matthew 24 and Luke 21 mention large earthquakes in different places so I always like to follow the Dutchsinse.com the earthquake guy as he always is very informative and accurate:
Don’t scroll past this Dante’s Peak like scenario near Yellowstone:
Hot Springs heating up! Idaho Hiker scalded and dogs killed :
A man hiking in the Idaho “Salmon” wilderness around Challis, ID suffered severe burns, and his dogs were burned alive after jumping into a volcanic hot springs normally fit for human swimming.
Challis Idaho is a location I have covered in detail for the past 2 years due to a large EARTHQUAKE SWARM which has been happening in the area.
Long time viewers will know about this central Idaho location due to my past coverage of this exact area. This hot springs spot is the location hit by the swarm of Earthquakes over the past several months!
The man + dogs were burned in the Salmon Wilderness near Challis Idaho along the deep Western edge of the Yellowstone supervolcano magma chamber.
The magma chamber has been confirmed to reach down over 30 miles, and cover an area the size of 11 Grand Canyons (filled with magma).
The magma chamber for Yellowstone is confirmed to reach far West into Central Idaho, and North into Montana.
First the earthquake swarms struck, now the hot springs are boiling where they’re normally just warm.
These are signs of magma movement associated with the Yellowstone supervolcano. Shallow magma is causing major heating, thus causing earthquakes, and hot springs to have major issues.
See the 2015 measurements of Yellowstones magma chamber here:
Not by coincidence, we should also make note that the USGS has also installed new monitoring equipment around Challis Idaho in the middle of last year (2014) due to the unexpected earthquake swarm which struck the location.
I made multiple videos showing the earthquake swarm in Challis, and talked about the new monitoring equipment as well.
See a video report on the location here:
It is very troubling to see this new hot springs burning news, since both dogs died of horrible burns, and the man is in critical condition after trying to save them.
This whole scenario sounds familiar – doesn’t it?!
This sounds like a movie I remember called Dante’s peak.
The movie involves a plot around an earthquake swarm striking near a volcano, a scientist warning about eruption (but the USGS won’t listen), and then a couple of people dive into a normally warm hot springs, and are boiled alive.
Am I the 21st century version of Dr. Harry Dalton from the movie Dante’s peak? Sure hope not.
US Earthquake Forecast if you have some time:
8/23/2015 — Nepal hit by new earthquake — THREE DAY WARNING ISSUED prior to event — Forecast area direct hit
Just as we were expecting, and as the earthquake forecast called for… new larger earthquake activity has returned to Nepal.
Sakurajima Spewing in Japan last week:
Martin Rietze, the photographer behind the website Alien Landscapes on Planet Earth, is willing to do whatever it takes to get a great photo — even if that means inching towards a volcanic explosion while scalding lava spews into the air and lightning strikes from dark clouds above.
Rietze is a “volcano-chaser,” according to the Daily Mail, a particular breed of photographer who takes big risks for big shots. He was able to capture destructive and beautiful forces of nature at work on a trip to Japan in February. His photos show the Sakurajima Volcano, an active volcanic who’s record-breaking 1914 eruption sent lava flows across the island.
After hours of silence, a lightning storm exploded above the volcano, Rietze notes on his website. During the 20-second storm, where bolts of lightning froze molten lava into dangerous lava bombs, Rietze snapped these fire and rimstone images and made a quick get-away.
“If fitted with a proper gas mask, helmet and protective clothing, you can stand a few dozen feet away from boiling lava lakes. It is an experience you will never forget,” Rietze told the Daily Mail in an interview.
The risk paid off. On Monday one of Rietze’s photos was picked as NASA’s Astronomy Photo of the Day.
Japan raises eruption warning for volcano near nuclear plant
Japan’s weather agency on Saturday told thousands of residents of a city in Kyushu to prepare for a possible evacuation as it upgraded a volcanic eruption warning.
Officials raised their alert to its second-highest level after picking up increasing seismic activity around the volcano Sakurajima, which sits just off the coast of Kagoshima, a city of more than 600,000 people.
Activity has spiked since early Saturday morning, they said.
The volcano is about 50 kilometers from a nuclear reactor that was switched on this week, as Japan restarted its nuclear power program following the 2011 Fukushima crisis when a quake-sparked tsunami set off reactor meltdowns at the now-crippled site.
Critics have said the restarted reactor at Sendai was still at risk from natural disasters.
“The possibility for a large-scale eruption has become extremely high for Sakurajima,” the agency said, warning residents to exercise “strict caution” and prepare for a possible evacuation.
The warning applies to a part of the island, which is home to more than 4,000 people.
The last major eruption at the 1,117-meter-high Sakurajima—a popular tourist attraction—was in 2013 when it spewed ash as far as Kagoshima and sent rocks flying into populated areas, causing damage but no major injuries.
There are scores of active volcanoes in Japan, which sits on the so-called “Ring of Fire”, where a large proportion of the world’s quakes and eruptions are recorded.
In June, search teams returned to the peak of Mount Ontake in central Nagano Prefecture for the first time in eight months to look for the bodies of six climbers still missing after an eruption that killed dozens.
The shock eruption was Japan’s deadliest for almost 90 years, leaving an estimated 63 people dead, many of their bodies at least partially entombed in volcanic sludge.

NRA says Sakurajima volcano no threat to newly restarted Sendai reactor
The Nuclear Regulation Authority said Monday that the Sakurajima volcano in Kagoshima Prefecture doesn’t pose a threat to the Sendai nuclear plant 50 km away.The Meteorological Agency increased the alert level for the volcano to 4 from 3 on Saturday, advising people within 3 km of the crater to prepare to leave. The highest rating on the scale is 5, when evacuation is ordered because of a high risk of eruption.Kyushu Electric Power Co., which runs the Sendai nuclear facility, said Monday that operations were normal. A reactor at the facility was restarted last week, the first in Japan to be brought back online under new safety rules set up after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster.“Regarding the effect from volcanic ash (and other debris), the NRA recognizes that it will not impair safe operations of Sendai facility based on the new regulatory requirements,” the authority said in an email. “It recognizes that Kyushu Electric company appropriately prepares its measure for volcanic activity.”There are 39 known volcanoes, 14 of which are active, within 160 km of the Sendai plant, according to Kyushu Electric. The company uses seismic sensors and global positioning technology to predict eruptions that may threaten its Sendai reactors.The company has updated equipment to withstand 15 cm of volcanic ash, and an eruption large enough to have an impact on the facility last happened 30,000 years ago, a spokesman for the utility said.Sakurajima’s last major eruption was over 10,000 years ago, which wouldn’t have affected the location where the Sendai facility was built, according to simulations, Kyushu Electric said in a March 2014 presentation.
Japan lies in the “Ring of Fire,” an arc of volcanoes and fault lines surrounding the Pacific Basin, and it sits at the three-way meeting point of the North American, Eurasian and Philippine Sea tectonic plates.
Authorities ordered the complete evacuation of Kuchinoerabu Island in Kagoshima Prefecture in May after the Shindake volcano erupted for the second time in 10 months. Last September, more than 50 people, mostly hikers, were killed in an eruption at Mount Ontake between Nagano and Gifu prefectures.
Terrified Hikers film Mt. Rainier Lahar flow!
With the super heated hot springs over in Idaho reported above, this caught my attention. After experiencing small volcanic earthquakes at Rainier like those in Idaho: Could this be something deeper than the park ranger’s explanation of “a hot day melting the glacier”?
The distant rumbling sounded like a train at first, but then Zachary Jones and Caroline Pedro saw a river of trees and boulders advancing toward them and Jones’ initial response was, “If we’re gonna die, we might as well film it.”
The hikers at Mount Rainier, Washington, captured the accompanying footage last Thursday while walking on a trail that’s now closed for obvious reasons.
“This is crazy,” Pedro says with a nervous laugh as the debris flow approaches. “I’m scared. Get back, I’m scared … The ground is shaking!”
The Seattle Times explained that hot and dry conditions this summer created a series of “glacial outbursts” Thursday on the western flank of the volcano. These glacial flash floods, of sorts, swept up fallen trees and rocks and rumbled with such ground-shaking force that they registered on seismographs. As he videotaped, a park employee came running down the trail, urging all the hikers on the trail to evacuate.The debris flows, caused by the melting and dispersal of glacial ice, originated at 6,800 feet on the South Tahoma Glacier. They were the first such outbursts in more than 10 years.
Said Scott Beason, a park geologist who was on the trail at the time of the debris flow: “Based on the summer we’ve had, and based on the recession of the glaciers, I was telling [colleagues] that this is the year when we’re going to have a debris flow.”

This is not good:
REAL ID enforcement could affect 200,000 federal buildings
Beginning October 10, security screeners in roughly 200,000 federal buildings may deny access to visitors who present a driver’s license or identification card from a state non-compliant with REAL ID rules. Alternatively, a passport or ID specially approved by the federal government can be used as proof of identity. Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released guidance for federal agencies for this phase of REAL ID enforcement. The document is “REAL ID Act of 2005 Implementation: An Interagency Security Committee Guide,” and contains a list of approved federal and state issued IDs (http://www.dhs.gov/publication/isc-real-id-guide#).
The 2005 REAL ID Act prohibits federal agencies from accepting driver’s licenses and IDs that do not meet standards set by DHS. One purpose of the REAL ID Act was to better safeguard federal facilities from terrorist attacks. The guide clarifies how identity card clearances are to be uniformly applied to protect federal employees and private citizens who work within and visit these buildings. According the Government Services Administration, there are 275,195 buildings that are owned and leased by the federal government as of 2014. To date, enforcement of the REAL ID Act has been limited to only 217 of these buildings. This next phase of enforcement will include “semi-restricted” federal facilities with Federal Security Levels 3, 4, or 5. Federal buildings where no ID checks currently occur, such as museums, benefits offices and government hospitals will not be among those covered by the increased enforcement.
Brian Zimmer, President of Keeping IDentities Safe stated, “States or territories that are not REAL ID compliant or have not received an extension to by DHS to comply will be most impacted. Residents of New Hampshire, Minnesota, Louisiana, and New York, are already being denied access to a few hundred federal facilities. Of these, only in New York does the Governor have the authority to direct the state DMV to comply. The other three states require legislative action to remove anti-REAL ID barriers. Adding as many 200,000 federal and military buildings with access restrictions will increase incentives for states to comply with REAL ID requirements. This REAL ID enforcement guide demonstrates that positive measures are being taken to protect federal employees and our soldiers on military bases from suicidal shooters and terrorists.”
Israeli Security thwarts Assassination plot at historic Joseph’s Tomb
8-23-15 Jerusalem Post
The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced Tuesday that it had busted a terror cell, thwarting a planned attack with improvised explosives and guns on Jews praying at Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus.
Many Jews visit Joseph’s Tomb, surrounded by Palestinian Authority controlled areas, without coordinating with the IDF, and the cell planned to take advantage of that extra vulnerability.
Terrorists have successfully carried out attacks on such worshipers at the tomb in the past, including the 2011 attack which killed a nephew of former Likud minister Limor Livnat.
According to the Shin Bet, who arrested the cell in conjunction with the IDF, the terrorists’ activities were directed and provided arms by Muhammad Darwish, an Islamic Jihad operative in the Gaza Strip.
While the cell-members had clearly carried out initial actions toward perpetrating the attack, it was unclear from the Shin Bet how imminent the attack was or the circumstances of the cell’s arrest.
Each member of the cell had a specific role in the attack, according to the Shin Bet. One of the members was responsible for supplying weapons, another gathered intelligence and two of the operatives were tasked with carrying out the attack.
One of the operatives, Nassim Muhammad Ramadan Rashid Damiri, 30 of the Tulkarm refugee camp, had previously been incarcerated several times in Israel and is known as a Tanzim-Fatah operative.
Another cell member, Muhammad Nufak Rafik Damiri, 23 also from Tulkarm, serves as a police officer in the Palestinian police.
The 2011 attack also involved members of Palestinian security forces, ideal for aiding in an attack on Jews crossing through border areas between Israel and PA controlled regions.
Another of those arrested, Yasser Jaudat Abd Tsarawi, 25 from the Nablus area, is also a former prisoner and a known Hamas operative.
The fourth cell member, Adwan Fadel Hassan Nazzal, 24 from Kabbatya, is an Islamic Jihad operative, the Shin Bet stated.
The Damiris from from Tulkarm were to carry out the attack, while Tsarawi and Nazzal served in supporting roles.
“During the interrogation, Nassim Damiri admitted his intention to carry out a terror attack at Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus, and his cousin, Muhammad Damiri, admitted to conducting surveillance and collecting information on the movements of the worshipers there, in order to facilitate the attack,” the Shin Bet stated.
Yasser Tsarawi confessed to teaching Nassim Damiri how to prepare an improvised gasoline bomb to use in the attack and Adwan Nazzal was asked by Muhammad Darwish from Gaza to provide weapons to the cell, the Shin Bet added.
The case has been passed to the IDF’s Samaria prosecutor’s office to file indictments. “In this investigation we have seen again very clearly that there is high motivation of operatives in Gaza to push and direct terror in the West Bank,” a Shin Bet source said.
