Indonesia tsunami fears: 6.1 magnitude earthquake strikes – move to higher ground warning

The country’s geophysics agency raised the alarm after the earthquake hit near the Moluccas islands today. They said: “Please move away from beach and move to higher ground.” As of yet, there have been no reports of injuries following the quake this morning. 

The quake struck at 4.43am (UTC) near to the city of Amahai on Seram island.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the earthquake hit a depth of 10km (6.2 miles).

They also reported that the earthquake had a radius of 250km (155 miles) sparking concerns of aftershocks to several other regions. 

A further 13 aftershocks were reported by the country’s earthquake agency. 

They said in a statement: “The results of tsunami modelling with a tectonic earthquake source showed that this earthquake has no tsunami potential, but based on observations of sea level it showed the sea level rose as high as 0.5 metres.”

A local disaster mitigation agency reported a slight rise in water levels but did not issue a tsunami alert. 

They added: “Earlier the water level was seen rising briefly, but we have not received further reports yet.”

Video on social media also showed local residents moving to higher ground amid the fears of a tsunami.

In 2016, a powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Sumatra. 

The powerful quake did not cause a tsunami but damaged communication lines in the island of Mentawai. 

One man told the BBC at the time: “The walls of my hotel room shook and made a loud sound.

“I have heard there are a lot of people trying to reach higher ground because of the tsunami reports, so some of the roads are jammed.”

In 2004, a devastating earthquake hit Indonesia which killed 220,000 people throughout the region. 

The quake was recorded at 9.1 and sparked a huge tsunami which ripped through Indonesia. 

The 2004 tsunami was off the coast of Sumatra and was felt as far as South Africa.

Baba Vanga 2021 predictions: Tsunami warning, end of the world and cancer cure in New Year

This post originally appeared on Daily Express :: Weird Feed

Baba Vanga’s followers believe the Bulgarian mystic predicted before her death in 1996 many world-changing events such as the rise of ISIS and the September 11, 2001, terror attack on New York. Baba Vanga was born Vangeliya Pandeva Gushterova in northern Macedonia in 1911, though she spent most of her life living in Bulgaria. During her life, she gained notoriety due to her supposed powers of foresight and ability to contact the dead.

According to reports from her childhood, she traded her physical vision for the ability to see the future after being confronted by an angel.

In The Weiser Field Guide to the Paranormal, author Judith Joyce said people would reach out to Vanga to learn more about their future.

The book reads: “Baba Vanga never wrote any books, but many books have been written about her, her abilities, and her prophecies.

“She claimed to receive information from invisible beings and said that, if someone stood before her, she could see the person’s life as if it were a movie, from beginning to end.

“Baba Vanga asked visitors to give her a sugar cube, which she then used as a crystal to focus energy and receive information.”

Her reputation is even said to have caught the attention of Communist leaders with rumours of Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev himself consulting the medium on more than one occasion.

Read on below to find out what Baba Vanga may have predicted for 2021, including claims of natural cataclysms and a long-awaited cure for cancer.

Craig Hamilton-Parker, a popular psychic and medium who runs Psychics.co.uk, has also shared with his thoughts and predictions for the new year.

1. Tsunamis and natural cataclysms in the new year?

One of Baba Vanga’s more worrying predictions is that of a cataclysmic tsunami that would strike Asia.

Vanga is said to have first warned the world of the deadly 2004 tsunami that killed more than 220,000 people in southeast Asia.

She is then said to have warned of another similar cataclysm in the future, followed by earthquakes and meteorite strikes.

The good news is, however, that .

2. Will the end of the world arrive in 2021?

Baba Vanga predicted the world would be gripped by “three giants” and a “strong dragon” in the future.

Although incredibly vague, many believe the blind mystic knew when the world as we know it would end.

She said: “We are witnessing devastating events that will change the fate and destiny of humanity.”

Vanga’s followers, however, will be glad to know the world is not predicted to end, by the mystic’s estimates at least, before the year 5079.

Should you believe in Baba Vanga prophecies?

Most sceptics agree there is very little evidence back claims of Baba Vanga’s prophetic powers.

Although her followers claim she had an 85 percent success rate with her predictions, there is no real written record of these prophecies.

Consequently, the validity of these predictions cannot be checked and a 2012 investigation found many appear to have been penned by Russian trolls and not the blind mystic.

The website Skeptics.com, for instance, states: “Vanga was illiterate or semi-literate, and she apparently did not write any books herself, with staff members financed by the Bulgarian government capturing what she allegedly said.

“Those of Vanga’s predictions quoted seem to all be apocalyptic visions of the future of the world – particularly Europe – and even Mars, where a war will break out in 3005 and change the trajectory of the planet.

“On a more positive note, she predicted that in 2028 mankind will fly to Venus to search for new sources of energy – she must not have seen the toxic and corrosive atmosphere of the planet – and that by 2130 civilisations will live underwater with the help of aliens.”

What else could happen in the new year?

According to Mr Hamilton-Parker, 2021 promises to be a much better year than 2020 on many fronts.

First of all, the psychic predicts the chaos caused by the coronavirus pandemic will start to lose its grip on the world in the new year.

He said: “In the UK we will beat the virus by August. Life will return to normal for vaccinated people.

“People refusing the vaccine will face restrictions on International travel.”

The psychic has also predicted the UK will strengthen its economy in the months and years after Brexit.

After an initial dip when the Brexit transition period ends with 2020, Mr Hamilton-Parker said Britain will only go from strength to strength.

He said: “Government support will encourage significant investments in the UK from the USA, Japan, India and the European Free Trade Association.

“The USA will do a huge trade deal with the UK without having to compromise health standards for chlorinated chickens etc.

“Britain will become a world leader in Quantum Computing and Artificial Intelligence.

“This will be spearheaded by targeted government investment into the intelligence services and the military.”

Tsunami of inflation is coming & silver will definitely catch investor attention – Keiser Report

Presented by
RT.com

Max Keiser talks to Stephen Flood of GoldCore.com about the case for gold in a bitcoin world, as well as the recent Reddit-driven buying frenzy, which sent silver prices soaring to an eight-year high.

“There’s a lot of silver, but it’s not in the right place, it’s not in the right format for certain vehicles,” Flood says, adding: “So, the ETF might come under pressure, it may not be able to fill its baskets. You might have its price decouple from the silver price, and it could become disorderly. But we are finding good supply at the refinery level…” 

According to Flood, “Silver is very much a marginal investment, most people haven’t a clue about it. Until recently it wasn’t on anyone’s radar.”

He says: “I do think, though, that as this inflation story begins to take off – I think there’s a tsunami of inflation coming – people will look to alternatives and silver is definitely going to catch a bid. And you’re going to see a lot of people looking to allocate that into their portfolio for the first time ever. This could actually develop into a real full-on silver short squeeze.”
