In Mexico, there was an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.9 to 7.1
During which there was an Earthquake Light phenomenon. This is when rocks were rapidly compressed, becoming so electrically conductive that they entered a new plasma state. “And that plasma can break through the earth’s surface and shoot up to 100 metres or 200 metres into the sky.”
Restored film of San Francisco's Market Street version of a film shot on April 14, 1906, four days before the Great Earthquake,
The information below was kindly supplied by @powerwordkilll Thank you!
The original 13-minute film is A Trip Down Market Street, which was shot and produced by the Miles Brothers. It was preserved in the Library of Congress and Prelinger Archives, and in 2018, Adrianne Finelli digitized and uploaded the footage for the Internet Archive. Now in 2020, Denis Shiryaev restored, upscaled and colorized the film. Shiryaev’s channel has even more restored footage, so check it out if you’re interested.
On Saturday, Aug. 14, Haiti was hit by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that destroyed thousands of homes and businesses, particularly in the southwest of the country. The death toll rose to 1,300 by Aug. 16, per Reuters, and nearly 6,000 people have been injured. The country is now bracing for the impact of Tropical Storm Grace, which will complicate search and rescue operations.
This is the second massive earthquake in 11 years for Haiti, which was devastated by another powerful quake in 2010 that killed tens of thousands of people. It is also the second major destabilizing event of the year: Haiti’s president, Jovenel Moïse, was assassinated on July 7 in unclear circumstances.
Because some international aid organizations’ responses to the 2010 earthquake were criticized for mismanaging funds, Haitians in the country and in diaspora are calling for donations to locally based aid groups.
Here’s where you can donate to make the biggest impact on the ground in Haiti.
Reminder: If you find me reblogging or posting any links with sources of corrupt organizations whether from government or not, please let me know through the message section on my blog. You’re also welcome to submit links and posts in my blog (with approval) so we can signal boost help for Haiti remotely as best and efficiently as we can during these pandemics. I don’t want to be funneling money to any more posers by signal boosting the wrong people. Thanks.

As most of you know, Croatia has been hit by a pretty big earthquake today, another big one this year (what you should know is that before 2020 we never had huge earthquakes like that and now we had a few pretty big ones in the midst of a pandemic so people including myself really don’t know how to react and it’s stressful and horrible to live through it and I know many people can relate because they’ve went through similar traumatic experiences themselves), there’s been casualties, some villages are completely gone, two towns are basically falling apart, there’s damage in the town where I live (Zagreb), too and my whole house shook like a leaf for a good moment when it was happening, and I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that I thought I was going to die in that moment (my mom shared with me that she basically feared the same) because it felt like the house was going to fall on us because of how bad the earthquake was, thank the Heavens that we’re fine physically and our home is undamaged, but a lot of people were not so lucky and now there’s just so much destruction and sadness and fear left in place where there used to be happy families, peaceful family homes, and victims are still being found/saved and it’s just a lot so I’ll be sharing some posts and resources which people from my country and other countries as well can use if they can help monetarily in any way (if not, even sharing is a huge way to help so please don’t feel bad about yourself if you can’t donate, I understand how rough this year has been and want you all to take care of yourselves).
The first way to help has been shared by Croatia’s Red Cross:
This is the account of the Red Cross from the town hit by the earthquake the most.
A namazu-e or catfish motif earthquake art, entitled Shin Yoshiwara ōnamazu yurai or "The cause of the great catfish at Shin Yoshiwara"
In November 1855, the Great Ansei Earthquake struck the city of Edo (now Tokyo), claiming 7,000 lives and inflicting widespread damage. Within days, a new type of color woodblock print known as namazu-e (lit. "catfish pictures") became popular among the residents of the shaken city. These prints featured depictions of mythical giant catfish (namazu) who, according to popular legend, caused earthquakes by thrashing about in their underground lairs. In addition to providing humor and social commentary, many prints claimed to offer protection from future earthquakes.
The popularity of namazu-e exploded, and as many as 400 different types became available within weeks. However, the namazu-e phenomenon abruptly ended two months later when the Tokugawa government, which ordinarily maintained a strict system of censorship over the publishing industry, cracked down on production. Only a handful are known to survive today.
Today, an earthquake with magnitude 6,4 Richter struck Petrinja,Sisak and Glina, with epicentre in Petrinja. This is the worst earthquake in recent history of my country. Petrinja mayor has just said that the first victim is a small child, whose body was discovered in front of their mother. Pray for Petrinja.
