Three earthquake fault lines in New Jersey have begun emitting Carbon Monoxide gas from underground, possibly indicating they are being “squeezed” and potentially warning of a coming earthquake! A satellite model using analysis from space, is showing the Carbon Monoxide emissions in our atmosphere and it corresponds remarkably well with the location of the Hopewell, Flemmington and Chalfont earthquake faults. You can look at the live satellite data, showing the Carbon Monoxide emissions and the wind direction HERE.
SuperStation95 checked with the New Jersey State Police office of Emergency Management to find out if there are any large forest or brush fires in the state today, which might account for a larger-then-usual show of Carbon Monoxide, but the OEM told us that the state has gotten heavy and steady rains for twelve hours and no large fires of any kind are taking place which might account for this satellite reading.
Further, common sense says that today being Sunday, there is little (or no) heavy industry operating today, and of course, no major traffic jams which might also account for increased Carbon Monoxide readings.
That leaves the question, “Where is the Carbon Monoxide coming from?” The answer: earthquake faults.
Earthquakes CANNOT be predicted, so don’t panic
Before we go any farther, we wish to emphasize there is no scientific way to actually predict an earthquake and we are NOT doing that. This article is published solely to inform the public about a factual matter which is taking place, and the historical facts about what this MIGHT mean, so none of you should panic or get upset by what you’re about to read. This situation may amount to nothing at all.
New Jersey has four main earthquake faults: The most well-known is the Ramapo Fault, the lesser known are the Hopewell Fault, the Flemmington-Furlong Fault and the Chalfont Fault. All of these faults are shown in the image at left (click [twice] to enlarge image)
When comparing the image at left with the image above, it becomes immediately clear that the Carbon Monoxide emissions correspond with the earthquake faults.
It is known in the scientific community that, depending upon the makeup of the ground beneath us, there have been some (very few) cases where Carbon Monoxide started coming out of the ground a week or two before an earthquake struck.
It Happened in India
The most famous of these incidents took place in India and was analyzed by Dr. Ramesh Singh.
Earth emits a burst of carbon monoxide (CO) a few days before an earthquake, according to geophysicist Dr. Ramesh Singh. He and co-workers from France and the United States report that this gas could be used as one of the precursor signals for an earthquake early warning system.
The scientists used data from an American satellite and analyzed changes in carbon monoxide at different altitudes. “The carbon monoxide shows enhancement in concentration a few days prior to the earthquake,” Singh said.
Singh, who was formerly with the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur, is currently in the physics department of Chapman University in California, USA. The project was funded by the Indo-French Centre for the Promotion of Advanced Research in New Delhi.
The researchers discovered the connection between CO emission and earthquake by analyzing satellite remote sensing data collected around the time when a 7.6 magnitude earthquake shook Gujarat in western India 15 years ago killing about 20,000 people and rendering thousands homeless.
The 2001 Gujarat earthquake occurred on 26 January, at 08:46 AM IST and lasted for over 2 minutes. The epicentre was about 9 km south-southwest of the village of Chobari in Bhachau Taluka of Kutch District of Gujarat, India.
Singh said that CO levels were taken by an instrument onboard NASA’s Terra satellite — launched in 1999 — circling the earth in a polar orbit at a height of 705 km. The instrument measures CO concentrations at different heights and also computes the total amount of the gas in a vertical column of air above the earth surface.
Analysis of the satellite data showed a large peak in CO concentrations during January 19 and 20 — a week before the main earthquake event. On January 19, the total CO in the vertical column was also higher than usual. After the 26 January earthquake the concentration of the gas dropped.
According to the scientists, CO gas is forced out of the earth due to the build up of stress prior to the earthquake “influencing the hydrological regime around the epicenter.”
Singh said an anomalous increase in land surface temperature a few days prior to Gujarat earthquake — as inferred from the data of NASA’s other satellite MODIS — is also related to the CO emission. “The increase of column CO and concentrations of CO may have enhanced the land surface temperature,” he said.
“The anomalous changes in CO concentrations prior to the main earthquake event and enhancement of temperature of the earth surface observed from MODIS satellite data give an indication of coupling between land and atmosphere,” the scientists report. Singh said observation by other researchers of a sudden increase in water vapour in the atmosphere and changes in the ionosphere a few days prior to the Gujarat earthquake all seem to be connected.
According to the report, all these observations including the latest discovery of CO emission show the existence of a ‘strong coupling’ between land-atmosphere-ionosphere. “The integration of all these parameters in a seismically active region therefore looks a potential approach to understand earthquake processes and may provide reliable information about an impending earthquake,” the researchers conclude.
Dr. Singh, pictured at right, is quick to point out, however, that the emission of CO gas IS NOT PERFECTED AS AN EARTHQUAKE PREDICTOR and no one should panic or get upset when such emission take place because they may be nothing more than a natural occurrence. He states this quite emphatically and insists that stories of this nature include this strong cautionary statement so folks do not become afraid.
It Also Happened in China
No other earthquake in the 20th century was as catastrophic or claimed as many lives as that which struck the city of Tangshan in Northern China on July 28, 1976.
Tangshan, a thriving industrial city in Hebei Province is located about 95 miles east and slightly south of Beijing, and about 280 miles southwest of Haicheng (Liaoning Province) – where in February 1975 another very destructive earthquake had occurred.
Although the region had experienced moderate seismic activity in the past, there were no foreshocks and no advance warning.
Date and Time of Origin: July 28, 1976 at 19:42:53.8 UTC (local date and time: July 28, 1976, 03:42).
Epicenter: The earthquake occurred near the coast, in Tangshan in the Hebei Province of northeastern China. Its epicenter was at 39.60° N 118.20° E, about 140 kilometers southeast of Beijing.
Magnitude: Originally reported as 7.8, later revised to Mw 7.6
Focal Depth: Shallow, 15 kilometers
There were no foreshocks or clear precursory phenomena prior to the Tangshan earthquake – as there had been in other earthquake stricken areas of China. However, more than half a month earlier there had been a series of abnormal signs observed in the regions of Beijing, Tianjin, Tangshan, Bohai and Zhangjiakou. Based on such signs the State Seismological Bureau had correctly concluded that a significant earthquake could be expected between July 22, 1976 and August 5. However, the precursory phenomena differed from those of other earthquakes. Because of the scattered distribution of the signals, there was no determination of the location where this earthquake would strike.
Just prior to the earthquake, many unusual phenomena were observed in the immediate Tangshan region. There were observations of large amplitude variations of groundwater level and of strange animal behavior. As early as July 12, it was reported that gas began to dischargefrom a well in a village. On July 25 and 26, this discharge increased. The day before the earthquake, well water at another village, reportedly rose and fell three times and other wells showed signs of cracking of their lining. . . (Source Here)
Death Toll – Within seconds of the earthquake, thousands of people lost their lives or were trapped in debris. The actual death toll from this earthquake may never been known with certainty. According to official government accounts the earthquake killed 242,769 people and severely injured another 169,851. However, based on the density of the population and the extent of destruction, these figures have been disputed. At the time Tangshan had 1.6 million inhabitants. Since the earthquake destroyed ninety three percent of all residential buildings, the death toll was estimated to be three times greater than what was reported – ranging from 655,000 to 779,000 people.
NO PREDICTION, JUST COMMON SENSE
This article is not a “prediction” or some sick Hoax. It is a logical assessment of the facts as they are known, using data sources which are reputable, which form the basis for a logical conclusion. Quite simply, we have compiled this information and ask you, the reader, to apply common sense. There is NO REASON TO PANIC, but there is reason to pay attention and THINK if maybe you should make some preparations, “just-in-case.”
We must emphasize that, at present, modern science CANNOT accurately predict an earthquake. We certainly do not claim to be able to do so and are NOT doing so!
Having said that, it is undisputed that the last time this type of CO emission took place, twenty thousand people were killed by a magnitude 7.6 earthquake in India and the time before that, at least 242,000 were killed in a quake in China where gas was emanating days in advance.
Therefore, it seems prudent to us, to publish this information so people can decide for themselves if emergency preparations are necessary.
Put fuel in your car gas tank and keep it topped-off for the next week or two in case evacuation becomes necessary. You don’t want to wait until a quake hits before trying to get fuel – which will be almost impossible to obtain if disaster strikes.
Have a supply of fresh water to drink and cook with for fourteen days. (Never mind for washing or flushing toilets – we mean water for SURVIVAL). Each human being requires six to eight (8 ounce) glasses of water per day. That’s 1/2 gallon per person, per day
Have a small, gravity-fed water filter. You may need this because in a major earthquake, municipal water mains may rupture; leaving entire cities without water. You may have to get water from a local stream, river, pool or lake. If you have to get water from such places, filter it first before drinking or cooking with it! With a water filter, you’ll need a storage bucket or containers to store the water you filter. So have a clean bucket or clean containers on-hand.
Have canned foods (soups/meats/beans/fruits) or dried foods (rice/pasta/grains) that will not spoil in the absence of electricity – and a MANUAL CAN OPENER to access that food.
Have basic emergency gear like battery operated flashlights and radios with spare batteries.
Have spare clothing to keep warm and dry if your home is ruined and you are forced to be outside for awhile.

Some of you may have, or want, an emergency electrical source like a small generator to provide limited electricity. If you get one, make sure you learn how to use it . . . AND NEVER, EVER, EVER, USE IT INDOORS. The exhaust gas from the generator motor will kill you if used indoors. Also, generators need fuel. Make certain you have only the lawful, safe, amount of properly containerized and stored FUEL to supply that generator. DO NOT STORE FUEL INDOORS, it could catch fire and make things worse. Be smart, not careless.
Those of you with outdoor propane gas grills, might want to make sure the propane tank is full or get a spare for cooking.
Of course, having some first aid supplies is a good idea to treat any cuts or bruises or to help someone seriously hurt by a quake.
Have a supply of medications that you may routinely take — and may need to rely upon for a week or two — until supply chains can be brought back online after a major disaster.
Much of this stuff can be packed into a “go bag” for each member of your family. Put the essentials in each bag (per person), make sure everyone knows where each bag is, and have a plan to grab the bags and meet at a particular place inside our outside your home if a quake hits.
We cannot say for certain that a major earthquake is going to strike. That’s why we urge you DO NOT PANIC!
What we can say that when this type of massive CO release has taken place in other places in the past, there was a major, deadly earthquake within two weeks. If it happened in the past, it can happen again.
DO NOT PANIC — PLAN INSTEAD
The choice is completely yours as to how to use (or ignore) this information. One thing is certain: THERE IS NO NEED TO PANIC. But there may very well be a need to plan, AND PLAN FAST.
We urge you to plan, now. If the past is any indication of the future, within two weeks, we will all know.
