Scenario

On 16 May 2011, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed that a catastrophic earthquake with a magnitude of 7.7 occurred on the southwestern segment of the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ), with an epicenter at Marked Tree, AR (to the northwest of Memphis, TN).A second large earthquake with a magnitude of 6.0 occurred a short time later on the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone (WVSZ), with an epicenter near Mt. Carmel, IN

The Federal Government is actively planning
National Level Exercise 2011 (NLE-11),
currently scheduled for May 16-20, 2011.
This exercise will be more complex than
typical NRC exercises as it will involve numerous
licensees (power and non-power reactors,
fuel cycle facilities, and materials) and "roundthe-
clock" real-time play over a 4-day period.


The NLE-11 scenario is a large-scale natural
disaster stemming
from a major earthquake
along the New
Madrid Seismic Zone
extending from northeastern
Arkansas to
Missouri.

 In the
scenario, earthquake effects will be felt
throughout a large section of the middle of the
United States. The NRC requested
participation from interested licensees in the
affected region. Many have agreed to support
the activity. This exercise is designed to challenge
Federal, State and local authorities, as
well as the private sector, in effectively
implementing the National Response
Framework and its associated implementing
mechanisms.

 I will post more as I find more.

National Level Exercise 2011 docs found on Army Corps fileserver prove upgrade for Secret 'Civil Disturbance Operations CONPLAN 3502' the Master Pentagon Blueprint for RNC/G20 Lockdowns, Policing Disasters & More

By Dan Feidt for Twin Cities Indymedia — Digital presentations posted on an Army Corps of Engineers server, about military operations in a giant FEMA-simulated earthquake drill called National Level Exercise 2011, inadvertently reveal crucial new info about another 'Secret' Pentagon plan, Northcom CONPLAN 3502, including the “trigger” for domestic military 'Civil Disturbance Operations.' CONPLAN 3502 and CONPLAN 3501, 'Defense Support of Civil Authorities,' are the two main military plans used to design the Pentagon's 'footprint' at National Special Security Events like the 2008 Republican National Convention.

Exactly as the Pennsylvania National Guard took over the G20 protester jail operation, other docs show 'Secret' CONPLAN 3502 specifically plans for military-operated detention and search operations within our country. In context, the new material is the most troubling I have ever discovered, and proves anew that underneath Constitutional limited government, a more brutal martial framework is secretly, constantly, extending its reach. DHS/FEMA doesn't like it at all when NLEs get publicized so check it out right away. Full URLs below.

So glad people are finding this helpful! Please if there is any other infos which could help, hit me up hongpong AT hongpong.com . I would love to keep getting this into the mix, I think it is crucial intel which helps explain things.

I think I forgot to put this before, I appeared on a segment on the Alex Jones show immediately after the G20, it is here in 2x parts. As you will notice I was very concerned about the military/ jail operations in Pittsburgh, and this report is quite directly a consequence of my interest in determining its freaky roots.

Boeing expands satcom network during Haiti's critical hour
http://www.boeing.com/Features/2010/04/bds_feat_BBSN_031210.html
By Randy Jackson Last Updated: April 19, 2010 |


Since Jan. 12, when a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the tiny nation of Haiti, and killed more than 150,000 people according to Haitian officials, a wave of planes carrying food, water, medical supplies, and search and rescue teams, has been flooding into the country.  With much of the country’s infrastructure in disarray, communicating with the flight crews and coordinating air traffic was a near-impossible task during the initial days immediately following the quake. Today though, as a U.S. Air Force VIP/ Special Air Mission flight turn onto final approach at Haiti’s Toussaint L’Ouverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince, the crew members know they can depend on the plane’s global broadband communications system thanks to a dedicated Boeing team. In the days following the quake, the Boeing Broadband SatCom Network (BBSN) program realized the need to expand communications coverage in the quake ravaged area. “We had solid coverage over the northern part of the country,” said BBSN program manager Mike Turner. “It’s the southern part of Haiti we wanted to bolster. There is a lot of margin built into the robust system so by fine tuning our satellite signal patterns from our Network Operations Center in Kent, Washington, we were able to adjust coverage and make sure all of our flights stayed connected when they needed to the most.” The BBSN system is operated and maintained by Boeing’s Defense & Government Services Information Services business and provides broadband internet, television and communications services for the Air Force’s fleet of 13 VIP/Special Air Mission aircraft. Formerly called “Connexion by Boeing,” the BBSN service was added to this fleet following Sept. 11, when the need for airborne communications on special Air Force planes became paramount. [...]“The Boeing Broadband Satcom Network can be found supporting the United States’ senior leadership on their global missions,” said Greg Deiter, vice president of Boeing’s Defense & Government Services. “It’s become the ‘gold standard’ of mobile aeronautical broadband communications worldwide, and we are proud of our team for finding a way to use BBSN to support the U.S. Air Force as they help the people of Haiti in their time of need.”

Boeing Awards Multiple Contracts for First Phase of FCS Class II and III Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Development
http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2005/q3/nr_050726m.html
ST. LOUIS, July 26, 2005 -- Boeing (NYSE: BA), teamed with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) as the Lead Systems Integrator (LSI) for the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems (FCS) program, today awarded four multimillion-dollar contracts to three premier industry partners to participate in the first phase of development for two classes of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The UAVs -- a key battlespace asset and integral part of the FCS system-of-systems solution -- are slated for fielding in 2014 with the first fully-equipped FCS brigade-sized combat teams.

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 22, 2007 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and partner Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), Lead Systems Integrator for the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems (FCS) program, with industry teammates BAE Systems and General Dynamics, have selected Elgin, Okla., as a principal site for FCS Manned Ground Vehicle (MGV) integration and assembly work.

Future Combat Systems Program Completes Integrated Mission Test-1
http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2009/q1/090226b_nr.html

ST. LOUIS, Feb. 26, 2009 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Science Applications International Corp. [NYSE: SAI], together the Lead Systems Integrator for the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems (FCS) program, have successfully completed Integrated Mission Test-1 (IMT-1), verifying that the integration of FCS systems and Battle Command software is proceeding as planned. The test, conducted in January at the FCS Common Control Node at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., caps more than two years of software development, integration and testing involving nearly every FCS Integrated Product Team and One Team Partner, as well as soldiers from the Army Evaluation Task Force (AETF) at Fort Bliss, Texas. The AETF is evaluating and testing FCS capabilities for incremental fielding and the development of full FCS Brigade Combat Teams.  "Integrated Mission Test-1 marks another milestone toward the program's goal of allowing soldiers to operate in an information-rich battlespace where threats can be identified more rapidly, understood more fully and targeted more precisely," said Boeing Vice President and FCS Program Manager Gregg Martin. The test involved nearly 400 computers, 30 unique mock-ups of FCS Manned Ground Vehicles, 45 soldiers, and more than 120 industry, Army and other government personnel.  During the test, soldiers crewed mock-ups of Manned Ground Vehicles during simulated operational missions that used advanced simulations of FCS systems and network capabilities. The purpose was to validate early prototypes of FCS Battle Command and System software by soliciting soldier feedback and analyzing how they executed the missions. Feedback was also obtained on FCS Warfighter Machine Interface displays, which provided soldiers with a common operating picture of the operational environment as they conducted simulated operational tasks.

"During this integrated mission test, soldiers from the AETF worked with our engineers on the design and functionality of FCS Battle Command software as they executed tactical missions in a simulated, contemporary operational environment cluttered with military and civilian vehicles as well as vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices," said Rick Greenwell, Boeing FCS director for Integrated Phases, Simulation and Test. "Through participation in these exercises and their relevant combat experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan, the soldiers provided invaluable recommendations on everything from FCS vehicle ergonomics to how we display and move information within the Battle Command network."

Army, Boeing Sign Agreement to Increase Funding for Future Combat Systems Program by Up to $6.4 Billion
http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2004/q3/nr_040809s.html
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 09, 2004 -- Boeing and the U.S. Army have signed an agreement to provide up to $6.4 billion in additional funding for the System Development and Demonstration (SDD) phase of the Future Combat Systems (FCS) program. The modification to the existing agreement for the SDD phase and additional funding enables the FCS program to expand its scope and to accelerate delivery of FCS technologies and capabilities to current forces. "This agreement underscores the importance of the new capabilities we are developing for the nations' warfighters, "said Roger Krone, senior vice president, Boeing Army Systems. "In our role as the Lead Systems Integrator team for FCS, we will continue working closely with our defense industry partners to help the Army address current and future challenges." The expansion of the program's SDD phase will be accomplished by adding four distinct "spirals" of capabilities for current forces. It also will fully fund the FCS network and its 18 core systems including four systems which were previously deferred. The changes to the program will allow the Army to field accelerated capabilities beginning in 2008, to add FCS capabilities to more than 30 modular brigades through 2014 and to field the first fully-equipped FCS Unit of Action in 2014. "This is a strong endorsement of our partnership with the Army and our performance on FCS," said Dennis Muilenburg, vice president and general manager of FCS for Boeing. "Our new task requires us to get these critical capabilities to our warfighters even faster. Working closely with our FCS One Team industry partners, we have demonstrated we are ready for the challenge." Boeing and Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) are partnered as the Lead System Integrator (LSI) team for FCS. In this role, Boeing and SAIC function as a "general contractor" for the Army and are responsible for total system-of-systems engineering and integration, development of the core network and architecture, and identification, selection and procurement of the program's major systems and subsystems. In May 2003, the Defense Acquisition Board approved the FCS program's entrance into the SDD phase. In December 2003, Boeing and the U.S. Army signed a definitized $14.78 billion Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) for the SDD phase of the FCS program following six months of effort by a U.S. Army/Boeing team to complete detailed planning and establish programmatic and technical baselines. The agreement announced today sets a ceiling of $6.4 billion for the modification of the existing OTA. Program officials expect the agreement to be definitized in early 2005.

FCS is a networked "system-of-systems" combining advanced communications and technologies to link soldiers with both manned and unmanned ground and air platforms and sensors. As the basis for the Department of Defense's visionary transformation plan, FCS will significantly increase the Army's agility and reduce logistics requirements, allowing it to go anywhere and to overcome any adversary. FCS is also designed from the ground up to enhance joint operations and coordination between U.S. and coalition forces.

So, how do you start an earthquake?  This is where some of Phasma's recent work on HAARP might come into play.  She has posted some very convincing evidence of HAARP's capabilities (of which I was at one time quite skeptical).

Turns out it definitley can have seismic effects.

AICC, VOAD, and the NLE11
By J.M. Rowe, N5XFW - Section Manager

Hello all:

Last week was a very busy time for me! I attended the two and a half day Arkansas Interoperable Communications Conference (AICC), and the Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) meeting. Luckily the AICC was ending just as the VOAD was begininng, and I had to drive fast from West Little Rock to Camp Robinson to make it on time.

There were several workshops and presentations at the AICC, and I got to sit on a panel discussing the response to the Albert Pike Flood. The people involved in the discussion all had good things to say about the capabilities of ham radio, as well as the hams themselves. One comment in particular struck me: it was brought out how flexible hams are; from problem solving to being a net control to joining a search team that otherwise would not have had external communications. What a compliment!

The main topic of discussion at the VOAD meeting was the upcoming exercise. The National Level Exercise 2011 (NLE11), as you know, will be about the New Madrid Seismic Zone. This is a big deal, with 8 states in 4 different FEMA Areas participating. We are understanding the scenario calls for a total systems failure for at least the first 24 hours. Did I mention this exercise is going to be done in real time? And it's May 16-20, so in reality we have little time to get all the ducks lined up.

So, we need to restart the face-to-face DEC meetings to do some exercise-specific planning. DEC's and EC's will be receiving some messages from the SEC shortly about this topic. I can pass on that the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management is very interested in their ham radio capabilities, and in our ability to get messages to and from local authorities. Think about doing that for 24 hours straight! Net Managers will have to line up shifts of Net Controllers, for instance.

Any volunteer must see to the health and safety of their family before responding, and in this case it is easy to see this would be a long and difficult recovery. Plan now for your and your families' personal preparedness.

That's all I have for now.

National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster®
http://www.nvoad.org/index.php/about-us-/bod.html

Board of Directors

A thirteen-member board of directors meets at least four times each year to provide guidance for the achievement of National VOAD goals. The board includes representatives from the national membership and three representatives from state or U.S. Territory VOADs. National VOAD is not itself a service delivery organization. Instead, it upholds the privilege of its members to independently provide relief and recovery services, while expecting them to do so cooperatively. National VOAD is committed to the idea that the best time to train, prepare, and become acquainted with each other is prior to the actual disaster response. Organizations and agencies that wish to become National VOAD members go through an application process and need to demonstrate their capability to work within the parameters agreed to by the members of National VOAD.

NLE11 National Level Exercise NLE 2011 Private Sector Participation

National Level Exercise NLE 2011 will be an operations-based exercise centered on the scenario of a catastrophic earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone, encompassing four FEMA Regions (IV, V, VI and VII) and eight Central U.S. Earthquake States: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee. NLE 2011 will exercise initial incident response and recovery capabilities, to test and validate existing plans, policies and procedures to include the New Madrid Catastrophic Plan (currently under development).  NLE 2011 will be conducted in May 2011.

Update:  The NLE 2011 will be conducted on May 16th - 20th, 2011.

Scenario:  On 16 May 2011, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed that a catastrophic earthquake with a magnitude of 7.7 occurred on the southwestern segment of the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ), with an epicenter at Marked Tree, AR (to the northwest of Memphis, TN).  A second large earthquake with magnitude of 6.0 occurred a short time later on the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone (WVSZ), with an epicenter near Mt. Carmel, IN.

Arkansas Exercise Objectives:  EOC Management - Demonstrate the State's and Counties ability as outlined in jurisdictional plans to effectively manage a catastrophic earthquake event through multi-agency coordination by activating and mobilizing Emergency Support Functions (ESFs), intrastate and interstate mutual aid agreements (MAAs), and Federal aid.

Critical Resource Logistics and Distribution - Demonstrate the State's and Counties ability as outlined in jurisdictional plans to access and establish points of distribution (PODs), State Staging Areas (SSA), Incident Support Base (ISB), and reception centers to receive and distribute critical resource supplies, equipment, and personnel to affected areas throughout the State, including hazardous materials (HazMat) and search and rescue (SAR) resources.

Emergency Public Information and Warning - Demonstrate the capability of the State's and Counties public information officer(s) to coordinate with Federal, State, local, private sector, and nongovernmental agencies for the formulation and dissemination of clear, accurate, and consistent information to the public and media and to establish a Joint Information Center (JIC) to monitor media contacts and conduct press briefings.

Mass Care - Demonstrate the effectiveness of the State's and Counties written plans, policies, and procedures for providing mass care services:  sheltering, staffing, feeding, and bulk distribution for the general and special needs population, service animals, and companion animals throughout the affected area in order to obtain access to medical care, physical assistance, shelter, and other essential services.

Communications - Demonstrate the ability as outlined in jurisdictional plans to access, establish, and maintain a continuous flow of communications among multiple jurisdictions, agencies, governmental officials, and the private sector for the duration of the emergency while utilizing redundant interoperable voice and data communications systems needed to support mission critical lifesaving and sustaining operations.

Citizens Evacuation and Shelter-In-Place - Demonstrate the State's and Counties ability as outlined in jurisdictional plans to ensure affected at-risk populations are safely sheltered-in-place and/or evacuated to safe areas in order to obtain access to medical care, physical assistance, shelter, and other essential needs and safely re-entered into the affected area.

Crawford County Exercise #1:  NIMS Personnel Credentialling
Exercise Coordinator:  Steven Gann                                    
Exercise Assistant Coordinator:  Dennis Gilstrap


Recommended NIMS Personnel Credentialing Process

When a request for mutual aid is received, the potential supporting department or agency evaluates its capacity to accommodate the anticipated loss of the resources that would be deployed without compromising mission performance (e.g., can a sheriff's department, emergency medical service, fire department, search and rescue, medical reserve corp, etc., allow 20 percent of its equipment and personnel to be deployed to another jurisdiction for 30 days and still meet its own community’s needs?).

If the potential supporting department or agency determines that it can accommodate the requested deployment of resources, it must next identify specific personnel who will be deployed. The department or agency then submits applications for each member selected for deployment to an authorized accrediting agency identified by the credentialing authority of the State to which the mutual aid will be provided.

The accrediting agency evaluates each application and determines whether the applicant meets the established criteria for the positions required by the mission. Applications that the authorized accrediting agency determines fail to meet established criteria are returned to the submitting department or agency, and may be resubmitted with additional documentation or when the applicant’s qualifications change.

For applications that are approved by the authorized accrediting agency, the following steps are taken:
The applicant’s department or agency is notified.
A record is created on the individual in the official credentialing database.
An identification card or other credential is issued to the individual. (The identification card or credential should include an expiration date and be reissued as appropriate.)
Information on the applicant is uploaded to the incident management infrastructure.

TEMA preps for major earthquake response drill
http://nashvillecitypaper.com/content/city-news/tema-preps-major-earthquake-response-drill
Monday, November 29, 2010 at 9:00pm By William Williams


With a federally overseen exercise to test the nation’s “earthquake response readiness” coming in May 2011, the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency this week will participate in a preliminary workshop to prepare for one of the most massive drills of its type in state history.

It’s been almost 200 years since a series of massive earthquakes began on Dec. 16, 1811, and violently shook northeast Arkansas, southeast Missouri and northwest Tennessee. Now called the 1811-12 New Madrid Earthquakes, the quartet of ground-shaking quakes was so powerful that the mighty Mississippi River appeared to run backwards, creating what is now known as Reelfoot Lake.

To recognize the 200th anniversary of the quakes, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and eight states will conduct National Level Exercise 2011 in May. On the state level, TEMA and officials with, among others, FEMA, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Earthquake Consortium, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Tennessee Department of Transportation and FedEx will meet Tuesday through Friday this week in downtown Nashville for a Resource Allocation Workshop.

At the time of the 1811-12 New Madrid Earthquakes, the area affected was no more populated with buildings and people than parts of Alaska today, while the commercial transport of goods and agricultural products from one side of the Mississippi to the other was accomplished strictly by boat.

Fast forward two centuries later and the region is vastly different, with each “half” of the nation depending, in part, on huge bridges spanning the big river and allowing the transportation of everything from office furniture to soy beans. Quakes similar to those 200 years ago could devastate St. Louis and Memphis, while the U.S. could effectively be severed in half, its citizens able to span the Mississippi only by air.

“This is significant for Middle Tennessee because the region will be a focal point for supply deployment [in the event of a catastrophic earthquake],” said Jeremy Heidt, TEMA spokesman.

Heidt said the aftermath of May’s flood saw about 200 tractor trailer loads of supplies enter the state per week for the first two weeks after the devastation.

“We would expect 1,500 tractor trailer loads per day and with emergency supplies [including food, water and fuel] if a catastrophic earthquake of 7.0 or above on the Richter scale hit,” he said.

TEMA’s current effort, more than two years in the making, will lead to a variety of exercises next year, culminating with the National Level Exercise 2011. For example, Earthquake Awareness Week in Tennessee will be recognized in February.

And on April 28, the state will be part of the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut.

“There’s lot of planning going on,” Heidt said. “We're having regular meetings almost weekly with various committees related to the exercise or planning. There are a lot of moving pieces to preparing for a catastrophic disaster and for a big exercise like this.”

Heidt said a massive quake along the New Madrid Seismic Zone could directly affect the eight states participating.

“They’ll all be asking for the same things,” he said. “How do we decide who should get what first and where should it come from? Search and rescue teams will be at a premium. Imagine all the stuff trying to get into Haiti following that earthquake.

In the U.S., there will be approximately 14 million people in the impact region.”

Heidt said officials conservatively estimate, based on computer models, the number of deaths in Tennessee alone to be between 2,000 and 4,000.

“When you start looking at the potential impact for this, the scenarios are almost apocalyptic as to what it means to the country,” he said. “Power grids could be out for weeks.”

Heidt referenced the China earthquake in 2008, which registered 8.0 on the Richter scale. About 69,000 people were killed with another approximately 18,000 listed as missing.

“Fuel lines, natural gas lines, electricity lines … a lot of it goes through Memphis,” he said.

National Level Exercise 2011 will be the first national drill combining federal, state and local agencies to focus on a natural hazard. Previous large-scale exercises have focused on terrorism following the Sept. 11 attacks.

“After Katrina, we realized we needed a more robust plan for a catastrophic disaster,” Heidt said. “The May flood was the closest we’ve come.”

The High Frequency radio waves blasted into the sky above HAARP somehow resonate and turn into LOW FREQUENCY WAVES which can be measured - at sea level - 4000 MILES AWAY FROM GAKONA!

THIS IS THE FIRST .MIL DOC I HAVE FOUD THAT GOES ANYWHERE NEAR CONFIRMING THAT HAARP CAN AFFECT VERY FAR OFF COUNTRIES! (WITH LF WAVES NO LESS - THE KIND THAT GENERATE EARTHQUAKES MAYBE?)
THIS PAPER WAS WROTE BACK IN 2006
ALL 180 ANTENNA`S WERE NOT COMPLETED UNTIL A YEAR LATER AND WERE NOT SWITCHED ON UNTIL 8 MONTHS AFTER THAT.
IMAGINE HOW FAR THIS THING CAN REACH NOW???

[1] We present calibrated measurements of ELF waves generated by modulated HF
heating of the auroral electrojet by the High frequency Active Auroral Research Program
(HAARP) HF transmitter in Gakona, Alaska, and detected after propagating more
than 4400 km in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide to Midway Atoll. The magnitude of the
2125 Hz wave received at Midway Atoll is consistent with the radiation from a
horizontal dipole located at the altitude of the maximum Hall conductivity variation
(created by modulated HF heating) and radiating 4–32 W. The HF-ELF conversion
efficiency at HAARP is thus estimated to be 0.0004–0.0032% for the 2125 Hz wave
generated using sinusoidal amplitude modulation.

1. Introduction
[2] Modulated heating of the ionosphere in the presence
of high-altitude, naturally forming electric currents, such as
the auroral electrojet and midlatitude dynamo currents,
has been investigated as a means for the generation of
electromagnetic waves in the extremely low frequency
(ELF, 3–3000 Hz) band since the 1970s [e.g., Getmantsev
et al., 1974; Stubbe et al., 1982; Ferraro et al., 1982;
Lunnen et al., 1984; Barr et al., 1991; Vilasen˜or et al.,
1996; Moore et al., 2006]. The coupling of ELF signals
generated in this manner to the Earth-ionosphere waveguide,
in which ELF signals can propagate to large distances with
relatively low attenuation, is important in the context of
assessing the potential use of such a system for long-distance
communications.
[3] Long-distance detection of ELF waves generated by
modulated HF heating of natural, large-scale current
systems has been attempted on several occasions. Ferraro
et al. [1982] presented results indicating the detection in
Pennsylvania of a 2073 Hz signal generated by the Tromsø
heater in Norway, 6000 km distant. The results of
this experiment have been repeatedly called into question
by Barr et al. [1986, 1991] and Barr [1998], whose
calculations indicate that the ELF signal strengths should
have been well below detectable ranges. Lunnen et al.
[1984] presented the detection in Puerto Rico of a
2500 Hz signal generated by the Jicamarca radar in Peru,
3500 km distant. However, as noted by Barr et al. [1991],
the signal of interest was not shown to be significantly
above the noise floor. Currently, the most reliable set of
experimental results in regard to the long-distance detection
of ELF signals generated in this manner and propagating in
the Earth-ionosphere waveguide has been provided in
studies by Barr et al. [1985, 1986, 1991], each of which
presents calibrated measurements of ELF waves generated
using the Tromsø HF heating facility. Barr et al. [1985]
found that a 1 W ELF transmission at the altitude of
the maximum Hall conductivity variation (created by
modulated HF heating) was consistent with observations
in the 1000–1500 Hz band using measurements at receivers
located 17, 205, and 554 km from the transmitter. Barr et al.
[1986] expanded the measurements to the 500–5500 Hz
band and analyzed the polarization of the received signal,
showing that observations closely matched the polarizations
predicted by accounting for the propagation effects within
the Earth-ionosphere waveguide. Barr et al. [1991] presented
ELF measurements detected 2050 km from the HF
transmitter with signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) levels >10 dB
using 20 min long integration periods at modulation
frequencies of 3010 and 6020 Hz. The polarization of the
received wave as a function of ELF frequency was used to
select appropriate Earth-ionosphere waveguide parameters
to describe the propagation. While long-distance measurements
of ELF signals generated by modulated HF heating of
the large-scale current systems have been presented using
the HF ionospheric research facilities at Tromsø and
Jicamarca, no such long-distance measurements have yet
been presented for ELF waves generated using the highpower
HF transmitter at the High frequency Active Auroral
Research Program (HAARP) research station in Gakona,
Alaska. The HAARP HF transmitter (or heater), which

Prescribed by ANSI Std Z39-18
operates at similar power levels and frequencies as the
Tromsø heater, is the principle component in a suite of
instruments at the facility through which experiments in
ionospheric physics are conducted.
[4] In this paper we present conclusive evidence of the
detection of ELF signals generated by modulated HF heating
of the auroral electrojet by the HAARP HF transmitter
at a ground distance of 4461 km at Midway Atoll, more
than twice the distance from the HF transmitter than that
presented by Barr et al. [1991]. The polarization of the
observed ELF signal at 2125 Hz is used to identify a range
of possible ionospheric parameters, and the magnitude of
the observed ELF wave is used to estimate the power
radiated at 2125 Hz in the context of a realistic Earthionosphere
waveguide propagation model.
2. Instrumentation
[5] The data presented in this paper were acquired using
Stanford University ELF/VLF receivers located in Chistochina,
Alaska (36 km from the HAARP facility at
62.61N, 144.62W), and at Midway Atoll (4461 km
from the HAARP facility at 28.21N, 177.38W). Each
receiver utilizes two orthogonal air-core loop antennas
oriented to detect the horizontal components of the wave
magnetic field on the ground, a preamplifier located near the
antennas, and a line receiver and data-recording system
located 600 m from the antennas in order to reduce the
effects of electromagnetic noise associated with 60 Hz hum
and its harmonics. Both receiver channel inputs have radio
frequency interference (RFI) suppression units to reduce
interference from differential signals at frequencies above
100 kHz, including the HF band. The analog receiver
channel outputs are antialias filtered at 40 kHz (using an
eight-pole Chebyshev filter) and sampled with 16 bit
resolution at 100 kHz. The timing trigger used with the
analog-to-digital converter has an absolute timing error
<150 ns, and the frequency of the trigger is accurate to
three parts in 1012. Thus the timing accuracy of the analogto-
digital conversion easily supports the hour-long integration
periods used in this paper for the detection of coherent
signals.
[6] The Stanford University ELF/VLF receiver equipment
used at Chistochina and at Midway Atoll has been
rigorously tested in order to establish that the ELF/VLF
signals received were not artificially created in the receivers
by nonlinear demodulation of the HF sky wave arriving at
the site. Two possible electronic couplings are of particular
interest: coupling via common mode signals and coupling
via differential mode signals. While common mode signals
at 1.6 MHz were reduced by 40 dB compared to signals at
1 kHz, common mode signals at higher frequencies were
too small to be measured. Additionally, differential mode
signals measured at 1 MHz were reduced by 40 dB from the
1 kHz value. Higher-frequency, differential mode signals
were also too small to measure accurately.
[7] Over the course of the 4 hour experiment, no other
potential sources for the observed ELF signals were in
operation near the receiver systems at Midway Atoll and
Chistochina. Together, these considerations strongly suggest
that the ELF/VLF signals observed at each ELF/VLF
receiver are indeed generated by modulated heating of the
auroral electrojet currents.
3. Description of the Experiment
[8] The experiment reported in this paper was conducted
at the HAARP facility between 0800 and 1200 UT on
11 February 2005 under nighttime ionospheric conditions.
The HAARP HF transmitter operated at 3.25 MHz with
X-mode polarization during hour-long sinusoidal amplitude
modulation periods, alternating each hour between modulation
frequencies of 575 and 2125 Hz. The HF beam was
directed vertically for all transmissions, and the input
HF power was 960 kW during the experiments to be
described, similar to the 1.08 MW used during the Tromsø
experiments [Barr and Stubbe, 1991]. Geomagnetic conditions
varied over the 4 hour transmission period: The
0600–0900 UT period is characterized by a Kp index of 2+,
while the 0900–1200 UT period is characterized by a
Kp index of 3+. The subsequent 3 hour period saw a return
of the Kp index to a value of 2+. During the first 3 hours of
the experiment the absolute value of all components of the
fluxgate magnetometer located at the HAARP facility
remained less than 50 nT, while the last hour of the
experiment saw the absolute value of the fluxgate magnetometer
data fluctuate above 300 nT.
4. Experimental Data
[9] Measurements made near HAARP (at Chistochina,
see Figure 1) are used for the comparison of this experiment
with previous long-distance ELF detection experiments,
while distant measurements (at Midway Atoll, see
Figure 1) are used to assess the level of ELF energy
successfully injected into the Earth-ionosphere waveguide.
In this section we will present the measurements made near
HAARP followed by observations in the distant far field.
4.1. Measurements at Chistochina
[10] Depending on the frequency of the ELF wave
generated, observations at Chistochina may be considered
to be in either the near field or the far field. Assuming a
horizontal dipole source at altitude h above a ground plane
(and HAARP), it can be shown that the amplitude of the
B field measured at Chistochina is a function of the signal
wavelength l and the total distance r between the dipole
and the receiver:

and d is the ground distance between
HAARP and Chistochina. From equation (1) it is apparent
that at small distances (i.e., in the near field) the signal
amplitude varies as 1/r3, while at larger distances (i.e., in the
far field) the signal amplitude varies as 1/r2. Barr et al.
[1986] showed that an effective Hall modulation dipole at
70–80 km altitude accurately modeled observations of the
ELF/VLF signal polarization in the far field. For an
effective Hall modulation dipole altitude of h = 75 km,
equation (1) may be used to show that at 575 Hz the B-field
amplitude at Chistochina consists of approximately equal parts

A05309
of near-field and far-field components, while at 2125 Hz
the far-field component dominates by a factor of 10.
[11] The magnitude of the ELF fields received at Chistochina
over the 4 hour transmission period are shown as a
function of modulation frequency and time in Figure 2. In
general, the strength of ELF wave generation is in the same
range as previous observations in Alaska [e.g., Kimura et
al., 1991; Papadopoulos et al., 2005; Platino et al., 2006],
although during the 1100–1200 UT hour the 2125 Hz
signal reaches a magnitude of 70 dB fT, 10 dB stronger
than the 1570 Hz signal detected 17 km from Tromsø by
Barr et al. [1985]. Signal magnitudes of 70 dB fT are also
10 dB stronger than the measurements (also at Chistochina)
reported by Platino et al. [2006], who used satellite
observations of ELF signals at frequencies <1 kHz to
approximate a radiated power level of 1–4 W from the
HAARP-heated ELF source region. A simple estimate
based on these observations indicates that the far-field
ELF source dipole during the 1100–1200 UT hour can be
expected to be 10 dB stronger than the 1 W estimated by
Barr et al. [1985] or the 1–4 W estimated by Platino et al.
[2006], i.e., on the order of 10 W.
[12] The variation of the observed signal magnitudes at
Chistochina may also help interpret observations at Midway
Atoll. While the magnitude of the 2125 Hz signal observed
at Chistochina during the 1100–1200 UT hour is 10 dB
higher than the magnitude during the 0900–1000 UT hour,
the magnitude of the received 575 Hz signal during the
0800–0900 UT hour is approximately equal to that observed
during the 1000–1100 UT hour. The Gakona fluxgate
magnetometer remains relatively quiet throughout the
experiment until several minutes before 1100 UT, at which
time the observed signal magnitude increases dramatically
and remains high for the next 45 min. The higher
magnitude of the 2125 Hz signal during the 1100–1200 UT
hour may thus be attributed to the presence of a stronger
electrojet current. This stronger electrojet current indicates
that far-field measurements at Midway Atoll may be more
likely to detect the 2125 Hz signal during the 1100–1200 UT
hour than during the 0900–1000 UT hour. However, the
attenuation rate of the Earth-ionosphere waveguide between
HAARP and Midway Atoll may likely be the dominant
factor in regard to signal detection at Midway Atoll.
4.2. Measurements at Midway Atoll
[13] In the distant far field at Midway Atoll, hour-long
discrete Fourier transforms (DFTs) are employed to detect
the 575 and 2125 Hz tones. In order to first demonstrate the
positive detection of each signal we rotate the antenna
orientation in postprocessing to maximize the SNR in a
10 Hz bandwidth centered on each frequency. Because the
noise environment is dominated by the impulsive electromagnetic
emanations from lightning (sferics), the noise
level as a function of antenna direction depends on the
location of active thunderstorms at the time of the experiment.
Thus the SNR is not necessarily maximized when the
antenna is aligned with the maximum magnetic field of the
signal (accounting for the signal polarization). Using measurements
from our two orthogonal loop antennas, we rotate
(in postprocessing) our antennas through 360 in order to
find the antenna direction which maximizes the SNR. The
results are shown in Figure 3, and the maximum SNR
obtained at 575 and 2125 Hz are 2.5 and 8.8 dB, respectively,
during the last two hour-long transmissions.
[14] Although neither ELF signal was detected at Midway
Atoll during the first 2 hours of transmission, the causal

relationship between the observations and the transmission
schedule during the second transmission at each frequency
is apparent: The signal of interest disappears during the
respective off periods. Although the noise level in the 10 Hz
band surrounding 575 Hz is observed to increase during the
final hour, the 575 Hz signal is still 1.8 dB larger during the
on period than during the subsequent off period. This fact,
coupled with the 2.5 dB SNR observed during the on
period, indicates that the 575 Hz signal is positively
detected. The fact that the 2125 Hz signal was detected
during the 1100–1200 UT hour and not during the 0900–
1000 UT hour is not entirely unexpected, considering the
10 dB difference in Chistochina observations during these
hours. On the other hand, the fact that the 575 Hz signal is
detected at Midway Atoll during the 1000–1100 UT hour
and not during the 0800–0900 UT hour suggests a higher
waveguide attenuation rate during the 0800–0900 UT hour
than during the 1000–1100 UT hour.
[15] Having established the successful detection of each
signal at Midway Atoll during the last 2 hours of transmission,
we now analyze the radial and azimuthal components
of each received signal, where the radial component is the
portion of the signal parallel to the great circle path and the
azimuthal component is the portion of the signal perpendicular
to the great circle path. Figure 4 shows the radial and
azimuthal components (using a 1 hour integration period) of
the positively detected ELF fields at each frequency during
their respective transmission hours. While the azimuthal
component of the 575 Hz signal is 2.5 dB above the
largest noise component in the 10 Hz band, the radial
component is at least 10 dB smaller than the azimuthal
component and also within the noise floor, precluding
detailed polarization measurements. The fact that the azimuthal
component of the 575 Hz signal is at least 10 dB
larger than the radial component is consistent with previous
observations by Barr et al. [1986] and previous theoretical
analyses by Barr et al. [1991] near that frequency.
[16] While the 575 Hz measurements are not ideal for
polarization calculations, at 2125 Hz both the radial and the
azimuthal components are detected during the 1100 UT
hour with SNR >3 dB. It is readily apparent from Figure 4
that the radial component of the magnetic field is significantly
stronger than the azimuthal component, a relationship
opposite that observed at 575 Hz. This observation is
consistent with previous observations by Barr et al.
[1986] and is consistent with the fact that the cutoff
frequency for the first quasi-transverse electric (QTE)
waveguide mode is between 575 and 2125 Hz. The fact
that the relative levels of the radial and azimuthal components
of the received field reveal waveguide characteristics,
such as the range of the first QTE cutoff frequency, has been
employed by Barr et al. [1986, 1991] to identify reasonable
ionospheric electron density variations with altitude which
yield wave polarizations that match observations.
[17] The polarization of the received ELF signals is
independent of the strength and excitation phase of the
ELF source dipole and will be used herein to approximately
characterize ionospheric propagation parameters. To be
consistent with the previous work of Barr et al. [1986],
the polarization is here defined as
P ¼
Br
Ba
¼ jPj expð jff PÞ; ð2Þ
where Br and Ba are the complex valued radial and
azimuthal components of the magnetic flux density,
respectively. The polarization and magnitude of the received
signals are summarized in Table 1, where the error range has
been approximated by incorporating the observed average
noise level in the 10 Hz band.
5. Analysis
[18] The numerical analysis performed in this section
relies on two separate physical models: one model to
calculate ELF wave propagation in the Earth-ionosphere
waveguide and one model to calculate the altitude of the
Hall current maximum during the HF heating process. In
order to approximate the ELF energy coupling to the Earthionosphere
waveguide we employ the long-wave propagation
capability (LWPC) code [Pappert and Snyder, 1972;
Pappert and Morfitt, 1975; Ferguson and Snyder, 1987], a
multiple-mode model that uses realistic parameters for the
ground conductivity, the Earth’s magnetic field, and the
altitude profile of nighttime ionospheric conductivity.
LWPC is a two-dimensional (2-D) code which accounts
for coupling between waveguide modes and necessarily
assumes ionospheric homogeneity in the dimension transverse
to the direction of propagation [Pappert and Snyder,
1972; Ferguson and Snyder, 1987]. Given an altitude and
orientation of the radiating dipole, along with the electron
density variation with altitude along the path of propagation,
LWPC is used to calculate the radial and azimuthal
magnetic field components at the receiver. Although LWPC
accounts for the boundary conditions imposed by the iono-

components of successfully detected ELF signals at Midway

spheric plasma and the conductive ground when calculating
waveguide excitation factors, LWPC assumes the radiating
dipole is operating within the free space portion of the
waveguide, rather than within the ionospheric plasma. This
assumption necessarily neglects any small amount of attenuation
experienced by the ELF signal in the D region
ionosphere prior to exciting the waveguide as well as any
transmission loss experienced in coupling from the ionosphere
to free space. In addition, the polarization of the
modeled wave at Midway Atoll is not sensitive to changes
in the altitude and orientation of the radiating dipole for the
ionospheric parameters used in this paper. The calculated
polarization at the receiver thus depends only on the ionospheric
electron density profile employed.
[19] While the polarization of the calculated field at the
receiver is independent of the altitude and orientation of the
radiating dipole, the magnitude of the calculated field
depends heavily on the altitude and orientation of the
radiating dipole. In this work, as in the work of Barr et
al. [1991], the radiating dipole is taken to be at the height of
the Hall current maximum, and the orientation of the
horizontal radiating dipole is taken to be along the geomagnetic
east-west direction. For the electron density profiles
that are able to support the wave polarizations observed at
Midway Atoll the altitude of the Hall current maximum is
calculated using an HF heating model similar to that
described by James [1985] but which accounts for the
sinusoidal amplitude modulation used during this experiment.
The altitudes of the Hall current maxima were
rounded to the nearest 5 km in order to simplify the
propagation calculations involving LWPC.
[20] We begin our numerical analysis using a set of
ionospheric electron density profiles of the form used by
Wait and Spies [1964] with h0 = 80 and 85 km and b =
0.45–1.0, and we will later compare these results to those
calculated for more realistic ionospheric electron density
profiles used in previous publications. Modeling results
involving the 575 Hz signal are not very revealing. Virtually
all ionospheric electron density profiles employed result in a
wave polarization magnitude <10 dB. The resulting range
in radiated power level is thereby rather large, and the only
definitive conclusion that can be drawn is that the radiated
power from the 575 Hz dipole is less than 1 kW. Similar
results were found using the more realistic electron density
profiles used later in this section. Because the measurements
at 575 Hz are not restrictive enough to be useful for model
comparisons, we ignore the 575 Hz signal through the
remainder of this analysis.
[21] While the modeling results for the 575 Hz signal do
not significantly restrict the range of possible radiated
power levels for our idealized dipole above the HAARP
HF heater, model results for the 2125 Hz signal are more
definitive. The polarization of the modeled 2125 Hz signal
along with the height hs and strength Prad of the radiating
dipoles are provided in Table 2. The calculated polarizations
for this set of ionospheres are well distributed over the range
of polarizations observed at Midway Atoll, and the resulting
radiated power levels range from 4 to 85 W. Among
the profiles listed the h0 = 80 km and b = 0.80 profile
yields wave polarization parameters that are closest to our
average observations and indicates a radiated power level
of 9–17 W. A radiated power level in the range of tens of
watts is not particularly surprising considering the SNR of
our measurements at Midway Atoll and the fact that our
measurements near the ELF source region at Chistochina
are somewhat stronger than those reported by Barr et al.
[1985] and Platino et al. [2006], who concluded a radiated
power on the order of 1 W. On the other hand, 85 W seems
rather high, and the exponential ionospheric profiles used
here may be considered to be too sharp to represent realistic
ionospheric electron density profiles. At the same time, it
can be seen from Table 2 that, in general, as the electron
density profile sharpens (as b increases), the resulting
polarization magnitude decreases and the resulting radiated
power level decreases. We will use this observation in the
analysis using more realistic ionospheric electron density
profiles.
[22] While the exponential profiles used above may be
considered too sharp to represent realistic ionospheric
profiles, electron density profiles I–VI and VIII–X shown
in Figure 5 have been used in previous ionospheric work
and are used here to analyze the ELF signals at Midway
Atoll. Profiles I–III have been used in VLF propagation
studies by Lev-Tov et al. [1995] and Moore et al. [2003],
while profiles III–VI have been used for subauroral work
by Demirkol et al. [1999]. Profile VII is a linear combination
of profiles I, II, and III and was selected as a rough

attempt to minimize the magnitude of the modeled field
polarization at Midway Atoll. Profiles VIII–X have been
approximated from the nighttime ionospheric profiles presented
by Barr et al. [1986]. The results of the analyses,
using these more realistic ionospheric electron density
profiles, are summarized in Table 3. It can be seen from
Table 3 that profiles II, III, IV, and VII yield polarizations
that are within the error range of our observations at
Midway Atoll. Although these more realistic profiles do
not fully bound the error range of our observations at
Midway Atoll, the profiles that yield wave polarizations
that are within the error range also yield radiated power
levels of 9–32 W. The ionospheric electron density profile
that most closely matches the average magnitude of our
observed wave polarization yields a radiated power level of
9–17 W, which is the same range found for the exponential
profiles previously employed.
[23] While the exponential electron density profiles
employed yield radiated power levels of 4–85 W, the
more realistic ionospheric profiles yield a radiated power
level ranging from 9 to 32 W. In both cases the electron
density profile that yields wave polarization magnitudes
closest to the average observed polarization magnitude also
indicates a radiated power level of 9–17 W. The more
realistic electron density profiles would appear to benefit
from a slight sharpening of the profiles, reducing the
magnitude of the modeled polarization. Along with a
reduction of the modeled polarization magnitude the radiated
power would also decrease, rather than increase, as
indicated from the analysis of the exponential profiles. It
thus appears likely that a more realistic estimate of the
power radiated at 2125 Hz would be limited to 32 W.
Together, the analyses using exponential profiles and the
more realistic profiles indicate a radiated power of 4–32W
from an altitude of 75–80 km.
[24] The 4–32 W range of radiated power is also
approximately consistent with our observations at Chistochina.
Assuming the heated ionospheric region may be
approximated by a horizontal electric dipole at altitude
h above a perfectly conducting ground, the expression for
the radiated power as a function of current moment Idl is

where m0 is the permeability of free space and r is the total

and (4) may be combined to show that a dipole radiating
4–32 W at 2125 Hz from an altitude of 75–80 km
produces magnetic flux densities of 63–72 dB fT at
Chistochina. Accounting for a more realistic lossy ground
plane using the near-field formulation provided by Platino
et al. [2006] produces negligible differences from these
results. The 63–72 dB fT range overlaps significantly
with the 60–66 dB fT standard error range observed at
Chistochina during the 1100–1200 UT hour. It thus appears
that the radiated power level of 4–32 W estimated using
measurements 4400 km from the HAARP HF transmitter
at Midway Atoll is also consistent with observations 36 km
from the HAARP facility at Chistochina.
6. Discussion and Summary
[25] We have presented definitive experimental evidence
of the detection of ELF signals at 575 and 2125 Hz,
generated by modulated HF heating of the auroral electrojet
current system, at a ground distance of 4461 km from the
ELF source region. A long-wavelength propagation model
bounds the radiated power of the 2125 Hz effective dipole
to 4–32 W. The resulting HF-ELF conversion efficiency
of 0.0004–0.0032% is 10 times larger than those found
in previous analyses [e.g., Barr et al., 1985]. However, the
ELF amplitudes observed at Chistochina during this experiment
were larger than those observed in these previous
analyses, indicating that ELF wave generation was simply
stronger during our experiment than during the previous
analyses. Nevertheless, the attenuation rate of the Earthionosphere
waveguide may likely be the dominant factor in
regard to signal detection in the far field. The positive
detection of ELF signals at Midway Atoll, using a 1 hour
integration time period during which the ELF source
parameters are observed to vary significantly in local
magnetometer data, indicates that the auroral electrojet

may be used as a stable source for ELF wave generation,
even under variable ionospheric conditions and can be used
to perform long-distance studies of the coupling of ELF
energy to the Earth-ionosphere waveguide.
[26] At distances as large as 4400 km we are significantly
limited in our analysis by a relatively weak SNR. In this
regard, nonlinear signal detection methods, such as the dataclipping
functions presented by Evans and Griffiths [1974],
may be employed to extract such weak signals from the
impulsive ELF noise environment. Although the generated
ELF signals were successfully detected using entirely linear
analysis methods in this work, such nonlinear data extraction
methods may aid in the reduction of uncertainty in the
final radiated power estimates.
[27] The lack of multiple modulation frequencies usable
for definitive polarization measurements during this experiment
impedes our ability to further limit the range of
ionospheric electron density profiles and thereby the range
of ELF power radiated. Future experiments may choose to
take advantage of the observation by Barr et al. [1988] that
pointing the HF beam in the general direction of the receiver
increases the observed SNR at the receiver, although we did
not take advantage of this fact. Furthermore, future experiments
are likely to have more success evaluating ionospheric
conditions as well as ELF source parameters using
receivers located closer to the ELF source region than
4400 km.

THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF
THE CENTRAL UNITED STATES
EARTHQUAKE CONSORTIUM
VOLUME. 14, NO.3, SUMMER 2010
OBSERVING THE BICENTENNIAL OF THE
NEW MADRID EARTHQUAKES OF 1811-1812

As the New Madrid Bicentennial (NMB) draws near, CUSEC and our Member States, academia, the private sector and many other state and federal organizations will observe the 200th anniversary of the great New Madrid earthquakes with participation in events hosted throughout the central U.S. The goal of this observance is to increase awareness about the earthquake hazard in the central U.S., and to promote greater preparedness efforts among the region’s residents. Organizations participating in the planning of this year-long event include:

Federal Emergency Management Agency
U.S. Geological Survey
National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program
Center for Earthquake Research and Information
Mid-America Earthquake Center
CUSEC Member State Emergency Management

Agencies
CUSEC Member State Geological Surveys
Delta Regional Authority
Earthquake Engineering Research Institute
Private Sector Businesses
and many others...

Planning for the New Madrid Bicentennial began in October of 2008. Since then, organizers have outlined activities that will span across the year of 2011/2012. CUSEC Member States will host a variety of activities that will include earthquake townhall meetings to discuss the central U.S. earthquake hazard, and how government is addressing this issue, training workshops focused on structural and non-structural mitigation, and public health (and medical) courses.

One CUSEC Member State EMA has decided to take their earthquake awareness campaign on the road. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) is in the process of purchasing a Quake Cottage - a mobile earthquake simulator designed as a storybook cottage with thatched roof resting on a double-axle tandem trailer. Its self-powered, three-dimensional movement is powered by a cam engine which thrusts the two thousand pound house with calculated strength simulating up to an 8.0 earthquake.

AROUND THE REGION
FEMA Conducts Emergency Public
Information Workshop in Illinois


In preparation for the National Level Exercise in May of 2011, representatives from FEMA Region V hosted an emergency public information workshop on June 2-3 in Carterville, Illinois. The main purpose for this meeting was to begin building a standardized region-wide external affairs protocol that will be adopted by local, state and federal governments and the private sector. Workshop facilitator Tom Mefferd, an Emergency Analyst with FEMA Region V opened with a discussion about the importance of public information officers at all levels sharing facts, controlling rumors and sending an accurate unified message to the public. “Our objective here is to begin developing a common system,” he said. “So we can speak the same language during the disaster.”

This workshop covered presentations about the central U.S. earthquake hazard, and in particular, how a moderate to major earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) would affect the CUSEC Member States of Illinois and Indiana. As Mefferd talked about the scenario for the 2011 National Level Exercise (NLE 2011),— a 7.0M earthquake strikes the central U.S. at 2:00 a.m., affecting at least 41 counties in Illinois and Indiana— he highlighted some initial and cascading events such as:

Households and businesses without power and water
Natural gas leaks and breaks
Law enforcement, and hospital facility damage
The high number of injuries and fatalities
Road and bridge damage

One of the changes to the landscape during the 1811-1812 New Madrid Seismic Zone Earthquakes was the formation of Reelfoot Lake in northwest Tennessee. Reelfoot Lake is the largest natural body of water in the state and is well known in the region for fishing and wide variety of plant and wildlife, including bald eagles.

 are seismically fastened to protect the occupants and demonstrate how violent yet survivable a major earthquake can be, according to safe-t-proof.com. While visiting counties in the southwest part of the state vulnerable to earthquakes, IDHS officials are hoping to drive home the importance of preparedness and mitigation to residents in order to help them to avoid the fallout of death and destruction that Haitians are still living with more than five months after their catastrophic earthquake. While distributing earthquake preparedness information through weekly press releases and twitter, the agency also plans to spread their preparedness message through earthquake presentations given in grass-root communities by officials of local county EMAs and fire departments. Local communities in the areas of New Madrid, Missouri and Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee are teaming up to showcase the bicentennial and have discussed the following potential projects:

Plays featuring the 1811/1812 earthquakes
Holding special screenings of several older films earthquake related films
The creation of historical postcards
The creation of restaurant placemats that show earthquake-related information
The creation of 1811/1812 souvenir t-shirts with illustrations of both Reelfoot Lake and the Missouri
Bootheel showing how these two communities are connected by the same earthquake hazard

Other contributions to the New Madrid Bicentennial include numerous hands-on products already in development
by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). These products are:
New Madrid Field Trip Guide Book
Map pamphlet that will illustrate the 1811/1812 earthquakes
Handbook for earthquakes in the central U.S. titled Putting Down Roots in Earthquake Country
Website that will include a map and a digital interactive timeline about the 1811/1812 earthquakes 

The Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI) is also working on a new earthquake display for the Reelfoot Lake Visitors Center. This display includes real-time earthquake information, information about the New Madrid Bicentennial and authoritative hazard information from the USGS. Other CERI projects in process include: a documentary on the New Madrid Seismic Zone, regional public service announcements, earthquake poster contest for grades K-12 and various conferences and meetings. The kick-off for the NMB is set for February 4th, 2011 in St. Louis, Missouri. Right now, you can log onto www.newmadrid2011.orgto find out more detailed information about the kick-off, upcoming bicentennial related events, background information about the 1811/1812 New Madrid earthquakes, earthquake preparedness information and much more. As an active participate in the New Madrid Bicentennial planning process, CUSEC is excited about a special project with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) which will involve building an earthquake resistant home in Memphis, Tennessee. This home will be built to the “IBHS Fortified…for Safer Living” standards, and auctioned off as part of St. Jude’s National Dream Home Program. This house will be available for viewing in March of 2012, with its completion planned for June. CUSEC is also coordinating the largest earthquake preparedness drill in central U.S. history aimed at helping the region’s residents put everything they’ve been told about earthquake preparedness into practice. This drill is called the Central U.S. ShakeOut.

organization’s participation in the drill. Registered participants will receive information on how to plan their drill and how to create a dialogue with others about earthquake preparedness. All organizers ask is that participants register (so they can be counted and receive communications), and at the minimum practice “drop, cover, and hold on” at the specified time. Central U.S. ShakeOut With more than 40 million people living and working in the central United States, the cross roads of America, a major earthquake could cause unprecedented disruption and devastation. What we do now, before a big earthquake, will determine what our lives will be like afterwards. With earthquakes an inevitable part of our future, we must act quickly to ensure that disasters do not become catastrophes.

The primary goal for the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut in April 2011 will be involve more than 1 million people in learning about earthquakes, through a broad- based outreach program, partnership with the media, and public advocacy by hundreds of partners. This event is being organized by CUSEC and our Member States: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. The ShakeOut will be centered around a simultaneous drop, cover, and hold drill that will be held at 10:15 AM CDT on April 28, 2011. The drill is designed to increase awareness and be a simple thing that can be done easily by many people.

A key aspect of the ShakeOut is the integration of comprehensive science-based earthquake research and the lessons learned from decades of social science research about why people get prepared. The result is a “teachable moment” on par with having an actual earthquake (often followed by increased interest in getting ready for earthquakes). The ShakeOut creates the sense of urgency that is needed for people, organizations, and communities to get prepared, to practice what to do to be safe, and to learn what plans need to be improved. Not just any drill will accomplish this; it needs to be big. It must inspire communities to come together. It must involve children at school and parents at work, prompting conversations at home. It must allow every organization, city, etc., to make it their own event.  The 2011 ShakeOut drill will be the largest earthquake preparedness event in central U.S. history. Soon, a website detailing ShakeOut drill procedures, registration, and promotion, will be ready at www.ShakeOut.org/centralus. At this website, you will be able to pledge your family, school, business, or

It is only a five minute commitment for something that can save your life. It all begins with registering, which is free and open to everyone. To sign up to participate in the ShakeOut, visit www.ShakeOut.org/centralus in the coming weeks. National Level Exercise 2011 On the heels of the Central U.S. ShakeOut to be held in April of 2011, the CUSEC Member States are also partnering with the federal government and various other agencies and organizations to conduct the largest emergency management exercise in U.S. history to be focused on a natural disaster.

Scheduled to be conducted in May of 2011, planning for the National Level Exercise —also known as NLE 2011 —officially began in the first quarter of 2009. This five day exercise will test local, state and federal plans and annexes that have been either modified or created as a result of the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) Catastrophic Planning Initiative —a project initiated by FEMA to increase national readiness for a catastrophic earthquake in the NMSZ.

Working groups have been established at the state and federal level to address the following subjects to be tested during the exercise:
Scenario Training
External Affairs (Public Information and Warning)
Private Sector
Control and Evaluation
Citizen and Community Preparedness
EOC Management
Medical Surge
Long-Term Recovery

Prior to the first Multi-State Concepts and Objectives (Multi-State C&O) —the formal beginning of the exercise planning process that is held to agree upon already-identified type, scope, capabilities, objectives, and purpose of the exercise— meeting in April of 2009, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky and Missouri held various types of lead-up exercises such as: local and state level tabletops, district and state level functional exercises, discussion-based exercises and command exercises. A subsequent National Concepts and Objectives (National C&O) Meeting was held in May of 2009 in Washington D.C., bringing together all key players to discuss information about the Exercise Directive. These meetings (Multi-State and National C&O) helped to insure the need for a bottom/local-up approach to exercise planning as well as emphasized the need to recognize the regional nature of the central U.S. earthquake hazard and response. The completion of the Initial Planning Conferences (IPC) — typically another early step in the planning process which lays the foundation for the exercise. Its purpose is to gather input from the exercise planning team on the scope; design requirements and conditions; objectives; level of participation; and scenario variables, and master scenario events list, or MSEL,— by the CUSEC Member States marked a major step in the planning process. In follow-up meetings from the state IPCs, the CUSEC Exercise Officers Working Group (EOWG) came together in September of 2009 to identify concerns and needs of the states individually and as a group. These concerns were later addressed in depth at the National IPC in Alexandria, Virginia in January of 2010. In between meetings and conferences, the states of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Tennessee

conducted joint planning meetings with FEMA, logistics workshops, and functional and tabletop exercises during the fourth quarter of 2009 and the first quarter of 2010. Recently, six out of the eight CUSEC Member States met with representatives from FEMA Regions IV, V, VI and VII at the multi-state mid-term planning conference in Frankfort, Kentucky in June of 2010; where briefings were given about the status of the exercise by state and federal planning partners. As planning continues for NLE 2011, you can follow its status in more detail by reading our “The Road to NLE 2011” column written by CUSEC Exercise/Training Officer Paul Hogue. This column has been featured in our quarterly journal since the summer of 2009.

Several more small quakes recorded in central Arkansas

 Oct 18, 2010

An area in northern Faulkner County where a number of small earthquakes have been recorded in recent months has produced still more.

The U.S. Geological Survey said that, after six quakes were recorded Friday, three quakes were recorded Saturday, three more on Sunday and four on Monday, all in the vicinity of the community of Guy.

New Fault Raises Threat of Eastern Earthquakes

Jan 22 2009

...The newfound fault is about 100 miles east of Little Rock, It is separate from the New Madrid fault that caused a series of devastating earthquakes in 1811 and 1812, all centered in Mississippi Valley...

...The new fault was found in fertile soil where liquefied sand bubbles up through cracks, according to Haydar Al-Shukri, the director of the Arkansas Earthquake Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. The fault has been the site of at least one magnitude 7 temblor and could cause another. Earthquakes that size could prove devastating for the region, more so than out West. Here's why: Sandy soil common to the region can liquefy during a quake. The effects of this liquefaction, as it is called, were starkly evident in low-lying areas near San Francisco Bay in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Along with other differences in geology east of the Rockies, earthquakes there pack more potential for damage and are felt over a much wider region than western temblors...

Earthquakes In The Midwestern and Eastern United States?!

...Over 900,000 earthquakes occur worldwide each year. Fortunately, the vast majority of them are magnitude 2.5 or less, and great earthquakes (magnitude 8.0 or more) only happen about once every 5 to 10 years. Most of these great quakes occur along the plate boundaries, !not in the eastern and midwestern U.S...

...The central Mississippi River Valley and the Charleston, South Carolina, are more prone to damage during earthquakes than the northern part of the country. These areas have sandy soils that shake more than solid rock, resulting in damage from subsidence during an earthquake. The high water tables along the Mississippi and near the coast also increase the risk of soil liquefaction during strong earthquakes...

Major Arkansas earthquake possible            
January 22, 2009

...Acres of cotton fields cover the fault west of Marianna, about 100 miles east of Little Rock, but stretches of fine sand mixed with fertile soil gave away the fault's location. Liquefied sand bubbled up through cracks in the earth, while ground radar and digs showed vents that let the sand reach the surface, he said...

...The researcher has said a gas pipeline crossed the newly discovered fault. He declined to name the company that owned the pipeline. Al-Shukri had said in a speech at the University of Arkansas' Clinton School of Public Service that the company was building a large line through the area, mirroring the old one's path...

...Pipes are "all over the place,""Arkla, CenterPoint Energy, or someone else has a pipeline everywhere."...

...Hundreds of earthquakes occur each year, including several in Arkansas. Most Arkansas earthquakes occur in the state's northeast corner in the New Madrid Seismic Zone, but the Marianna fault was not connected because it was too far from the temblors caused by that zone...

NLE 2011 will simulate the catastrophic nature of a major earthquake in the central United
States region of the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ). The year 2011 is the bicentennial
anniversary of the 1811 New Madrid earthquake, for which the NMSZ is named. NLE 2011 will
be the first NLE to simulate a natural hazard.
NLE 2011 activities will take place at command posts, emergency operation centers and other
locations to include federal facilities in the Washington D.C. area and federal, regional, state,
tribal, local and private sector facilities in the eight member states of the Central United States
Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC).

The eight member states of CUSEC encompass four
different FEMA regions:

Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee (FEMA Region IV);
Illinois and Indiana (FEMA Region V); Arkansas (FEMA Region VI); and Missouri (FEMA
Region VII)

United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) Contingency Plan (CONPLAN)
3501, and Stafford Act) reveals that Army Reserve specified tasks for DSCA include:

Specified Task 1 - Provide support to FEMA regions, on a reimbursable
basis, for emergency communication, security operations, and associated
management and ensure the availability of such support during any time
of war or national mobilization.

Specified Task 2 - Establish an Emergency Preparedness Liaison Officer
(EPLO) program that assigns, trains, organizes and equips teams to serve
each FEMA region

Implied Task 5 - Providing support to FEMA regions, on a reimbursable
basis, for emergency medical service, chemical, transportation,
quartermaster, aviation, and associated management

Challenges to Providing Civil Support

Many challenges confront the Army Reserve while attempting to sustain and
improve its ability to provide defense support to civil authorities during a presidential
declaration of a major disaster or emergency. Some of the challenges include legal
restraints, administrative requirements, transformation from a strategic force to an
operational force, and structure changes. Several of these challenges inter-relate and
are stifling under the current laws, policies and directives.

The first challenge is to sustain strong relationships with FEMA regions as the
Army Reserve command structure disestablishes the ten RRCs currently aligned with
the FEMA regions. Each RRC has a habitual relationship with their aligned FEMA
region and DCO. This relationship will dissolve by the end of FY 2009 without a clear
replacement once the RRC inactivates. When considering the specified and implied
tasks for the Army Reserve, this loss of habitual relationships will complicate
coordination efforts.

The requirement to coordinate with potentially several commands
within a single FEMA region to alert, command and control, and deploy volunteers and
available unit equipment required to meet the RFA for a specific incident negatively
affect Specified Task 1 (providing signal and military police support to FEMA) and 2
(establishing a viable EPLO program); and Implied Task 1 (soliciting volunteers), 2
(synchronizing unit equipment and volunteers to fulfill RFAs), and 5 (providing medical,
chemical, transportation, quartermaster and aviation support).

A key link between FEMA and the supporting military forces is the DCO. The DCO
acts as the primary coordinating officer between FEMA and DOD. In the event of an
incident, the DCO validates requests for assistance from FEMA and approves all
mission assignments that task military units/elements to deploy and employ their
capabilities. The DCO must coordinate actions with Active Army commands, the
National Guard EPLO from each state within the DCO’s region, and the Army Reserve
EPLO. The DCO will also command and control units that deploy to an incident.

The DCO is assigned to every FEMA region and has a Defense Coordinating Element
(DCE) to assist him/her in performing those duties. The DCO and DCE will continue
their regional alignment. If an incident is large scale, DOD, via NORTHCOM, will
designate a Joint Task Force Commander in lieu of the DCO to command and control
units in the designated area of responsibility.

Arc Aspicio Participates in National Level Exercise (NLE) 2011
http://www.arcaspicio.com/insights/2010/9/1/arc-aspicio-participates-in-national-level-exercise-nle-2011.html

On September 1, Arc Aspicio participated in a Private Sector Working Group session to prepare for the National Level Exercise (2011), an exercise to prepare and coordinate a multiple-jurisdictional integrated response to a national catastrophic event.  NLE 2011, to take place in May 2011, will simulate a catastrophic earthquake in the central United States region called the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ).  2011 is the bicentennial anniversary of the 1811 New Madrid earthquake, for which the NMSZ is named.  For more information on the 1811 earthquake, and the events commemorating the upcoming bi-centennial, visit http://newmadrid2011.org/.

NLE 2011 will be the first national exercise to simulate a natural hazard and will focus on regional catastrophic response and recovery activities among federal, state, tribal, and private sector participants.

A diverse range of private sector partners took part in the Working Group session. The Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) intend to incorporate the guidance and encourage participation of partners in the business, non-profit, academic, and NGO communities.  Collaboration encourages participation during the planning and execution of the exercise to test preparedness and resiliency.

FEMA is encouraging increased participation in the National Private Sector Working Group.  To participate in the National and/or Regional NLE 2011 Private Sector Working Groups, please contact private.sectornle@dhs.gov.   DHS intends for the formation of Private Sector Working Groups to be a significant step in the collaboration between government and the private sector during times of national emergency.

Arc Aspicio is pleased to be part of the Working Group because our corporate philosophy is to raise emergency preparedness awareness among employees and partner companies.  The company has been busy during National Preparedness Month, September 2010. In a recent all-hands meeting, Arc Aspicio reviewed its updated Continuity of Operations (COOP) plan. The company provides a $250 annual bonus to employees towards the purchase emergency preparedness supplies.

FEMA Leaves LV For Disaster Training + UNLV EQ DRILL
"For the first time, local FEMA volunteers are going through an emergency drill together in Reno. The goal is so that the north and south can cooperate easily in case of a disaster. The team left early this morning from Nellis Air Force Base.

We think of these guys as a beacon of hope in the face of disaster. We always see their heroics, but we rarely see what they have to go through personally to get there. It takes special people to search for the dead in a pile of rubble or stagnant water.

"You get there and it's not what you expect. It's not what you see on the news and the media, it is a whole different atmosphere," said Mike Szoke. He's with Nevada Task Force 1 and has seen that atmosphere firsthand -- working in the chaos of Katrina, Rita and even September 11th.

""Anytime you have a disaster, it is going to be kind of chaotic when we get there," he said.

But even with all their gear...

"It's a mask," said David Osborne, a FEMA Rescue Specialist.

And muscle...

"It's for warfare," said Osborne.

Strange as it sounds, sometimes their good intentions turn sour.

"You don't want volunteers showing up and being part of the problem," said Szoke.

So part of being a hero means knowing when to step back and do nothing.

"You wanna go out there and do something. But you have to make sure the building is safe before you enter so you don't become a part of the problem," said Szoke.

"There is a lot of hurry up and wait type of things," said Osborne.

Taking their time to know the environment helps them with the biggest challenge.

"I think it is just getting to know each other," said Szoke.

Today, they are taking the time to get to know a new group of rescuers in Reno. From that relationship they learn.

"Different search techniques, different rubble piles, different weather conditions," said Szoke.

Every heroes journey, like the one that started Thursday at 2 a.m. for these men, starts with a little patience.

"There is not really training, it is kind of on the job learning. After going on a couple of deployments, you gotta sit back and take it as it comes," said Szoke.

They will be working in 12-hour shifts for two days up there, presumably on earthquake scenarios. The size of the FEMA team here has nearly tripled in just one year.

They say the best thing you can do to help them is be prepared for a disaster. Try to have about three days worth of supplies, food and water. To get a complete list of what you should have, click here."  http://www.accessclarkcounty.com/depts/administrative_services/oem/Documents/Disaster_Supplies_Calendar.pdf

Taylor: FEMA officials a 'bunch of buttheads'

(http://media.sunherald.com/smedia/2008/06/03/21/184-0604Superdelegate-Taylor.embedded.prod_affiliate.77.jpg)
Rep. Gene Taylor, Democratic member of the House of Representatives

An official reaction to FEMA's no-ice policy came from U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor who referred to FEMA officials as a "bunch of buttheads."

Last week, officials were told that FEMA had decided to only supply ice for use in medical emergencies and life-saving reasons. It's left local officials scrambling to figure out ways to make it available for the general public.

During a meeting with Hancock County Board of Supervisors this morning Taylor said he intends to write to FEMA to register his objections to the new policy. He also urged Hancock County supervisors, as well as the city councils of Waveland and Bay St. Louis, to send similar letters of objection.

"I'm going to write a letter and tell them what a bunch of buttheads they are," said Taylor.

Quote
“.....As for ice, I’m still not clear what he thinks FEMA should do....”

The dirty little secret is this: The welfare class received assistance before the tax payers did. I visited many homes of my patient’s that were stuffed with relief supplies. Literally huge piles of MREs, cleaning supplies, you name it.

http://www.sunherald.com/newsupdates/story/612792.html
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2028632/posts

The police, firefighters and medical personnel who were WORKING the disaster, took back seat to the WANTS of the welfare class vs their actual NEEDS. They WANT ice, food, a bed, shelter, etc. right NOW!! So the avoid riots, they go to the head of the line. He, Taylor, is only responding to the demands of one of his biggest constituencies.

Earthquake Training Bring Reno Fire Department USAR Team, National Guard Resources Together

"A large-scale earthquake based disaster exercise will be held at the Regional Public Safety Training Center this week bringing Fire Department and National Guard Resources Together.  The Reno Fire Department’s Urban Search and Rescue team (USAR) will respond to the site of a collapsed building with trapped victims Thursday morning, the result of a 7.1 magnitude earthquake that hits the Reno area.


The earthquake and collapsed structure situation won’t be real but response by specially trained Reno firefighters with special equipment designed for confined space rescue, structure stabilization and other USAR components will be as close as the Vigilant Guard ‘08 training exercise can make it. The regional exercise scenario is based on a simulated 7.1 magnitude earthquake south of Reno. UNR seismologists predict such an earthquake in this area would result in extensive infrastructure damage and with a potential widespread human toll. Interjects into the training scenario as it progresses will reflect changing conditions and new information that will change the nature and direction of exercise activities and creating new challenges for the participants.


The exercise involves approximately 2,000 personnel from agencies at the federal, state and local level participating in tabletop, functional and full-scale exercises June 12-19 in Washoe, Storey, Lyon, Douglas and Churchill Counties and Carson City. A key component of the full-scale exercises will be National Guard Civil Support Teams and unit members from several states who will respond to the area to assist with local operations. National Guard Civil Support Teams include both Army and Air active duty National Guard members who are specially trained and equipped to respond to domestic chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives incidents to support local emergency response agencies. Some National Guard units also have search and rescue capabilities. The National Guard Civil Support Teams are capable of self-sufficient operations for 72-hours.


This is the 11th such exercise to be undertaken across the country. Funding for Vigilant Guard ’08 is from $1.5 million allocated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security through the National Guard and the Nevada Division of Emergency Management.


Governor Jim Gibbons will hold a news conference at the State Emergency Operations Center in Carson City at 10:00 a.m. Thursday to discuss details about the week-long exercise. Joining the governor will be Nevada Division of Emergency Management Chief Frank Siracusa; Major General Cynthia Kirkland, adjutant general of the Nevada National Guard; and State Geologist Jonathan Price, director of the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, which includes the Seismological Laboratory at the University of Nevada, Reno.


A 1:00 p.m. briefing for local, state and federal officials and the news media will be held at 1:00 p.m. Thursday as Reno USAR activity beings on the rubble piles at the Regional Public Safety Training Center. The Reno Fire Department’s Urban Search and Rescue Team (USAR) will initiate on-site activities to safely locate and rescue victims in the rubble piles that may include conducting load calculations for shoring to stabilize structural components in order to effect the rescues. Reno USAR will also request assistance from Nevada Task Force 1, a national USAR resource based in Clark County, and the Nevada National Guard’s 92nd Civil Support Team in LasVegas, as well as National Guard Civil Support Team resources from other states. The 92nd CST will travel from Las Vegas, and Nevada Task Force 1 (USAR) will fly in from Clark County and begin a 30-hour consecutive operational period on the rubble piles. They will fly out on Friday night while exercise activities continue virtually 24-hours a day on the Reno rubble piles through Saturday.


Vigilant Guard ’08 is an emergency preparedness/response exercise sponsored by the federal National Guard Bureau that has been in the planning stages for approximately two years using the earthquake scenario which is coincidental to recent earthquake activity throughout the Reno area. The tabletop, functional and full-scale exercises taking place in Reno and in five other nearby Nevada counties June 12-19 will test and train participant skills in victim recovery, triage, mobile field hospital setup, evacuation by ground and helicopter resources, search and rescue, mass shelter, emergency food distribution, hazardous chemical spill response, structural and infrastructure damage assessment.


In addition to using the two rubble piles that also include collapsed parking garage features with vehicles within the rubble, exercise participants will also use railroad cars and the seven-story training tower at the Regional Public Safety Training Center.


Friday, there will be a rubble pile exercise with the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District at Incline Village based on the scenario of a 5.0 aftershock resulting in major damage at Incline Village including collapse of a college dormitory with victims trapped in the rubble. Six members of the Reno Fire Department USAR Team will fly by helicopter to Incline Village to assist with the effort, and will return to Reno in the late afternoon."

CITY OF TONAWANDA: Meeting set for National Guard drill

Staff reports

The public will have an opportunity to ask questions before the Vigilant Guard exercise comes to the City of Tonawanda.

At Mayor Ron Pilozzi’s request, the National Guard is conducting a public meeting Monday at Tonawanda High school to discuss the operation. From Nov. 1-6, the site will be turned into an earthquake disaster simulation with piles of rubble representing collapsed buildings. The scenario is a 5.2-magnitude earthquake with Kenmore as its epicenter.

In addition to National Guardsmen and local first responders, agencies from Vermont, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Jersey and as far away as the Virgin Islands will participate. Pilozzi said the event will bring about 4,500 people into the city.

Before the project got off the ground, certain conditions had to be met. For one, environmental concerns on the site necessitated importing cleaner concrete to build the training areas. Those same concerns made landing a helicopter at the site problematic, since it would have to fly over residential areas and stir up dust from the site.

Arrangements have been made to work around those concerns, and the public will be informed of exactly what the training event will entail at the public meeting. A slide show will be followed by a question-and-answer period.

Umnnnn the New Madrid !

The fault line that has been so severely destabilized by the oil leak that it's still shifting badly.
http://folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu/recenteqs/
What a f**king coincidence that's where the want to stage their next big drill...

Not to mention that fault is due for a major quake like 25 years over due  even.
The last extremely major quake on this fault line leveled the city of charleston sc
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1886_Charleston_earthquake

And now they want to stage a fake quake on the same fault ... hrmmz the same fault that if it shifts enough this time might just set off a neighboring super caldera ...

No cause for worry ... just a drill ... right and the Hati quake was just a natural occurrence.....

I'm still thinking the quake may not be so fake.  I'm thinking HAARP.  But fake or not, it certainly does look like they pare planning quite the party.

Lots of suspicious things about the Haiti quake and timing:  earthquake, Cholera pandemic and (the contested) elections (which decide who gets to manage the aid money Clinton et. al. are sitting on.)

Are these chickens coming home to roost, soon?

I agree with you..... the Hati quake was HAARP + a gravity well weapon....
I've made some interesting statements about that in the past ....
But yeah looks like they are really thinking of  pulling something major  like a a shift in the fault ... agreed... My choice of wordsin the prior post were merely not to sound like an alarmist but yeah... they seem to be  heavily enthralled with the idea of blowing that fault line ...

Not a pleasant prospect...

You all know the one to watch right?

A small volcanic island in Tenerife - the Cumbre de Vieja.

Its western most flank - a giant chunk of land mass - slipped significantly during the last erruption. The volcano is still very much live. There are concerns that if it were to blow big time then the flank might slide into the sea - in one large chunk. This would trigger an enormous tsunami that would totally take out americas east coast - and many other places.

If there was a trigger here - and any of you live in the "danger / red zone" and you hear this thing has blown, you`ll have about 4 to 5 hours to get your asses out of harms way!

EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNESS: WHAT THE UNITED STATES CAN LEARN FROM THE 2010 CHILEAN AND HAITIAN EARTHQUAKES

 “The earthquakes caused the ground to rise and fall - bending the trees until their branches
 intertwined and opening deep cracks in the ground. Deep seated landslides occurred along the
 steeper bluffs and hillslides; large areas of land were uplifted permanently; and still larger areas
 sank and were covered with water that erupted through fissures or craterlets. Huge waves on
 the Mississippi River overwhelmed many boats and washed others high onto the shore. High
 banks caved and collapsed into the river; sand bars and points of islands gave way; whole
 islands disappeared… ”
 
 This is not a quote from the Book of Revelations or any other chapter of the Bible. It is a quote
 from the U.S. Geological Survey’s website. This quote described what happened when major
 earthquakes struck the New Madrid fault in 1811 and 1812.


 As we near the 100th Anniversary of the 1811 and 1812 New Madrid Earthquakes, we are
reminded how critical planning and preparation are to mitigating against loss of life and
property. The effects of the New Madrid earthquakes were spread over vast area. Physical
damage was reported as far away as Charleston, South Carolina and Washington, DC. In
Boston, Massachusetts, which is some 1,000 miles from the epicenter of these earthquakes,
church bells rang out from the seismic vibration.


National earthquake planning currently includes developing a Federal Interagency Operations
Plan for Earthquakes. This plan is response and short-term recovery-oriented, and will address
federal capabilities supporting response efforts to a catastrophic earthquake occurring anywhere
in the United States and its territories. The FEMA Regions are also partnering directly with their
states for joint state/federal planning efforts with the focus on specific fault zones within those
Regions. The overarching Federal Interagency Operations Plan ties all of these efforts together in
a capstone document to address the means by which the federal interagency will prepare for and
respond to a catastrophic earthquake anywhere. This plan is closely linked to the development of
the National Level Exercise (NLE) 2011.



NLE 2011

The National Level Exercise 2011 (NLE 11) is a congressionally mandated series of building
block exercise activities designed to educate and prepare participants for a catastrophic
earthquake incident in the NMSZ. NLE 11 will test and evaluate the federal government’s ability
to implement catastrophic incident response and recovery plans in support of state, local, tribal,
nongovernmental and private sector NMSZ earthquake response and recovery activities, as well
as for individuals, families, and communities.


The year 2011 is the bicentennial anniversary of
the 1811 New Madrid earthquake, for which the NMSZ is named.

NLE 2011 will be the first
NLE to simulate a natural hazard and will provide the framework for the eight impacted states
and four FEMA Regions to test and evaluate regional earthquake response and recovery plans.


The NLE 11 capstone functional exercise (NLE 11 FE) will occur May 16 – 20, 2011, with
targeted exercise play focusing on interaction between state emergency operations centers,
FEMA Regional Response Coordination Centers, FEMA’s National Response Coordination
Center, and federal departments’ and agencies’ national and regional emergency operations
centers
.

NLE 11 will also examine how these entities interact with and support the broader
homeland security enterprise. We have set NLE 11 as a proof of concept for our whole
community catastrophic planning construct.


As part of NLE 11, the states will test their response capabilities in the following exercise
objectives: communications, critical resource logistics and distribution, mass care, medical surge,
citizen evacuation and shelter-in-place, emergency public information and warning, emergency
operations center management, and long term recovery.


The Rehearsal of Concepts (ROC) Drill
was conducted on September 28-30 in North Little Rock, Arkansas, and served as an excellent
opportunity for all state and federal stakeholders to come together to rehearse and discuss
Concept of Operations to the FEMA Region 6/Arkansas Earthquake Operations Plan. The ROC
Drill used the NLE 2011 planning scenario to rehearse the plan.

..

One particular tool that was developed by the Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration,
supported by the FEMA NEHRP program, is the Hazards U.S. Multi-Hazard Earthquake Model
also known as HAZUS. This tool is widely used by emergency managers and planners in high seismic
areas throughout the U.S. to assess their risk from earthquakes and to determine the
potential losses that would result from earthquakes of various intensities to which each region is
susceptible. The HAZUS-MH Earthquake model was used extensively to develop the scenarios
for both the NMSZ Catastrophic Planning efforts as well as being used as part of the upcoming
NLE 2011 exercise in May 2011.

McKinley: Relationships vital to National Guard domestic operations

...

He then committed the National Guard to participate in this year's National-Level Emergency exercise.

"I'm going to pledge the full support of the National Guard to make sure that our efforts in support of NLE 11 are comprehensive and that it allows us and the leadership team here along with the (adjutants general) to make sure that our system ... is fully ready to support our nation."

This exercise will focus on a New Madrid Fault earthquake event and will involve eight states and multiple agencies.


General McKinley also laid out the National Guard's future plans for joint domestic operations to provide flexibility and readiness.

"In any domestic emergency, it will be incumbent upon all the Reserve components to participate in a seamless manner," he said. "I've made it a priority ... to reach out to the most senior levels within the Department of Defense and our interagency partners, to get the authorities and policy in place that allow all of our forces the operational flexibility to respond effectively.

"A good example of this effort is happening at United States Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command under the very able leadership of (Navy) Admiral (James) 'Sandy' Winnefeld.

Preparing for the worst
Region’s first responders rehearse disaster convoy


Homeland Security officials from across northeast Indiana gathered Saturday morning to practice a convoy. It may sound like driving a lot of vehicles one after the other would be simple, but preparing for the 17-mile convoy took hours and was anything but simple.

The convoy drill was to practice for another in May, said District 3 Task Force Commander Brandon Taylor, who is also the EMA director in Huntington County.

That convoy will travel to southern Indiana for a multi-state drill to practice responding to an earthquake along the New Madrid fault. That national-level exercise will include FEMA and officials from Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Michigan.

“We’ll be doing search-and-rescue, rubble piles and everything,” Taylor said. Teams that plan to participate in that exercise were represented on Saturday.

At exactly 10 a.m., more than 400,000 people across British Columbia will jump out of their chairs, dive underneath a sturdy surface and wait for the largest simultaneous earthquake drill to end.

Radio stations across the province will sound an alarm and thousands of students, office workers, even clergy and church goers will take cover for a minute to practice what they’d do when the so-called Big One hits.

This is the first time a province-wide drill has been conducted and the goal is to create awareness.

The Great B.C. ShakeOut drill is inspired by a similar event in California, where similar earthquake drills have been conducted for the last three years.

“What we’ve learned from them is what a terrific enhancement it’s been to their emergency preparedness. People are much more aware of the earthquake threat,” said Lyle.

Slightly more than 10 per cent of B.C.’s population registered to take part in Wednesday’s drill

Ok so for years now a devastating earthquake has been predicted. Several of the top psychics have said this real bad earthquake will happen this year.  Including the web bot.  Some said between February, and June. Others have narrowed it down to April, and said the earthquake will happen in California. 

A fact that many do not know is that when this earthquake was predicted, (or found) they also said that this bad earthquake will be the beginning of 2012.  It is the marker that lets the public know that 2012 is real, and you should take heed if it does happen.  In other words if this earthquake does not happen, then neither will 2012.

So these drills may be related to these predictions.  I will dig up some info on this after Alex's show.
