the Great English earthquake 1884

Great English earthquake 1884

although england does suffer from the occasional earth tremor large shocks are rare. one of the largest happened in the morning on 22 april 1884 as was known at the time as the Essex Earthquake but now known better as the Great English earthquake of 1884.

i have picked up a book entitled "The Great English Earthquake" by Peter Haining hoping that this book may have some EU stuff in it. there does seem to have been some red lights seen in the sky before the great English earthquake hit. when i get to that bit i shall write more.

the great english earthquake 1884 seems to have been one of those that made a huge wave in the land, a rolling wave that spread across the land

people seemed to have felt or sensed something the moment before it happened because in the eyewitness accounts from the town of Wivenhoe lots of people, for some reason, decided to look towards the town the moment before it struck. people who were doing other stuff in the area, on top of hills or on the river Colne looked towards the town the moment before it struck.

the great english earthquake 1884 - the wave of terror

highlights from the great english earthquake or as it was otherwise known, the essex earthquake, east anglia earthqake or the colchester earthquake

*p38 -  wave height in some places may have had an amplitude of 6 feet and it was a real rolling wave
*p87 - the sound and effect of the shock was thought to be an act of terrorism carried out by "the dynamiters" - the fennian group
*p92 - epicenter around essex and wivenhoe - 53,000 square miles effected
*p51 - the great english earthquake also struck colchester - was colchester named afer "old king cole" who reigned in that area thanks to the romans around 300 ad?
*p89 - sickness/nausia caused by the shock wave motion.one mans watch ran 15 minutes fast by the end of that day
[electromagnetic effects if earthquakes are part of the electric universe?]
*p101 - norfolk - sounded like "a heavy traction engine passing"
*p128 -  the "S" peices of iron you will see in the walls of old cottages were used to hold together split walls damaged from the earthquake



A YEAR OF INTENSE DISTURBANCES
*ch3 -  a year of global events - extreme weather, krakatoa and a cholera epidemic in europe. many shocks in europe.
jan 1884 swiss scientist Prof August Forel called it "the earthqake period" which lasted for severla months in europe with shocks and loud noises in england
winter/spring 1884 - mildest winter for a generation but very wet
jan 20th 1884 - massive storms - barometer fell from 30.17 inches to 29.21 inches in 4 hours



STANDING POINTS (NODES)
*P60+65+120+122 why were some areas of land calm yet very close cottages were damaged and destroyed?

(great adjustible animation of waves and standing waves)



MERSA ISLAND WRECKED
*ch5 - earth gruntings - splits and fissures - the ground split open with fissure, from a few feet to 100 yards and in width from a couple of inches to a couple of feet

st peters well, mersa island - had the worst fissure on mersa island and was a foot wide and 2 yards deep - water sprayed upwards. water was also spraying up from other fissures on the island. the fissures lasting for around half a day.

also on mersa island there were other streams of water that were white in colour and warm - lasted until the next day



there were other strange geological, animal and weather phenomena that happened before, during and after the great english earthquake

the great english shock 1884 - weather and natural effects
« Reply #2 on: May 08, 2010, 02:12:41 »


weather and natural effects during the the great english earthquake of 1884


p*141 - the essex field club investigated and found reports of agitation of the water ending in a water spout in lowestoft, sand also was agitated, whirlwinds happened in a couple of locations.

p*142 - the essex standard noted that there has been abnormal weather around the days of shocks in england

p*143+144 - charles fort inspirer of the fortean times gathered reports of black rain, black snow and hail falling over the next week. the stonyhurst observatory near liverpool reported an amazing darkness and then black rain, sleet and snow fell. a black liquid like ink and also an unkown pink substance also fell in other parts of the country.
in june on the 22nd near colchester there was darkness and black soot fell from the sky, 2 days later there was another very local slight tremor
also a quartz stone fell from the sky and smashed into a greenhouse. this was verified.
before or during the shocka  red glow in the sky above colchester
charles fort suggest these events were triggered or caused by explosions in the sky

*p102 - "one lady who managed to keep her composure and provide an unusual angle on the disturbance was mrs ellen biddell... " i was lying in bed with my face towards a large window, watching the clouds in the north east part of the sky, when all at once the clouds appeared to go and pass in every direction, and mix up together in a remarkable manner. then came an awful rumbling sound under the bed, which heaved up."


*p181-182 - the nature publication said that the shock "produced a marked and permanent change in the level of underground waters in the districted"
colchester waterworks the water level had been sinking and they were about to increase the depth of the suction pipes but after the shock the water level had risen by seven and a half feet!
Mr C De Rance, secretary to the underground water committe of the british association said wells had rising from bristol to ryde, level increased by 20 inches to the 7 1/2 feet at colchester.
the water level did not drop back down in the dry summer months after the quake also

*p78 - abberton also had its spring water discoloured

*p123 -  strange vapour in the air at tillingham - smelled like a sulphurous vapour

the essex earthquake 1884 - animals and bees - tempest prognosticators?


*p140 - readers letter to the essex weekly news on april 23rd
"the following curious fact may perhaps be of interest to some of your agricultural readers:- i was attending to my hives on tuesday morning at about a quarter past nine, when the bees, which had hitherto been busily working, suddenly ceased, and whithout apparent reason became torpid. in fact it seemed as though the inhabitants of each hive and been stricken with paralysis.
as i was endeavouring to ascertain the cause of this eccentric behaviour, the earthquake passed, and caused the hive to oscillate very perceptibly for several seconds. after the shock had ceased, the bees slowly recovered consiousness and resumed work.
this is by no means the first instance on record of this extraordinary foreknowledge on the part of bees and kindred insects, for in countries where earthquakes are of frequent occurrence the same thing has often been noticed."

it was also noticed by people that the cattle had laid down together for the couple of days before the shock
very few or no fish in the local rivers on monday 21st
no birdsong on the morning of the quake until after the shock had passed
another story suggests that no cock crowed that morning either.

are all animals/insects/wildlife natural tempest prognosticators?

the colchester earthquake (east anglian earthqake) 1884 - heavenly portents

*p137-  the east anglian daily times printed a letter - "the ancients say, when you find at the vernal equinox the close proximity of saturn to the cusp of the fourth house of the heavens in gemini it pre signifies earthquaks and high winds in the western parts, viz., england, london, and the united states &c. this was the position on thursday, march 20th 1884. the serious earthquake  shock in essex and suffolk this day is, to say the least, a strange coincidense. last year we had warning that earthquakes would be felt in the grecian archipelago in july, and on july 28th the awful earthquake took place in the island of ischia, a few degrees west of the grecian archipelago, destroying casamicciola and more than five thousand lives."

*p137-  The london daily echo also carried a reference in its astrological column during the first week of april that during the month "there would be an upheaval in eastern england of a kind not before experienced". only the essex telegraph seems to have recalled - or been reminded - of this prediction, and commented with opend-minded fairness: "it is stated that the earthquake was foretold in the echo some three weeks ago, and the people who pin their faith to the adumbrations of almanac-makers will certainly be strengthened by the fact that these authorities predicted some such visitations as that which caused panic throughout the whole of the eastern division of england,
