Pisgah Crater California, an area my long time viewers know about all too well…….. just experienced a 4.0M earthquake very close to the actual crater complex.
A 4.0 magnitude earthquake at a dormant volcano is certainly something worth noting — especially in light of the OTHER dormant volcanic activity yesterday which occurred in California, and Nevada.
Here is the media making fun of me in 2011 openly — for noting large plumes from Pisgah volcano appearing on RADAR. Nevermind the plumes they said, they said the plumes were THUNDERSTORMS. After the media blamed thunderstorms for the obvious plume coming from the volcano — the Marine base Senior Public relations officer (commander?) from 29 palms military base literally contacted me and told me they were explosions on the marine base — asked me to take my videos down!!!!!!!
Yesterday, March 29 2015, a series of smaller earthquake struck TWO dormant volcanoes in California, and Nevada.
Mammoth Mountain volcano experienced a 2.9M earthquake, and Twin Buttes (volcanic buttes) in Nevada also experienced a 2.9M earthquake.
Followed today by a 4.0 Magnitude at Pisgah craters means things are really on the move – seismically speaking.
