Yunnan - Earthquake Breaks Three Year Drought

On Friday, September 7, 2012 two earthquakes shook a mountainous area in Yunnan, China. A shallow magnitude 5.7 earthquake in the South – Western provinces of Yunnan and Guizhou in China was followed 50 minutes later by a magnitude 5.6 killing 80 people and causing devastation to Yunnan Yiliang. Hundreds of aftershocks continue to shake the quake stricken areas.

Since 2009, Yunnan has experienced a severe three year drought, with fears that the source of the Pearl River was drying up in Yunnan. See: Yunnan's Endless Drought.

On September 11 - four days after the two earthquakes - torrential rain flooded Yunnan and the quake hit area, ending the severe drought.
Rain started to fall in Yiliang on Monday night. The accumulated rainfall reached 100 mm in most areas - 162 mm in the worst-hit town - in just a few hours. The county's headquarters for flood control and drought relief said the rainfall was the largest in local meteorological history. It has damaged drinking water supply pipelines and alternative water sources as well as creating mudslides, further blocking access to the disaster hit areas.

Did the ancient Chinese understand something about changing element cycles in their search for harmony - 2012 is the Year of the Chinese Water Dragon - the elements of water and fire combined.

Unusually severe rainfall, creating powerful flash floods, have been experienced this year across China, as well as Japan and other areas of the world. America has experienced "the fire" severe drought, as Asia has experienced "the water" torrential rain and flooding.

Curving energy lines running through the Earth were considered to be Dragon energies, whose sudden and powerful release could create earthquakes. Earthquakes have been associated with effects in the atmosphere.
Before the Great Tohoku M9 earthquake which devastated Japan on 11 March, the total electron content of the ionosphere increased dramatically over the epicentre, reaching a maximum three days before the quake struck.

At the same time, satellite observations showed a big increase in infrared emissions from above the epicentre, which peaked in the hours before the quake. In other words, the atmosphere was heating up. Technology Review

The Great Sichuan Earthquake on Monday May 12, 2008 - magnitude 7.9 - was followed by severe flooding. "Tens of thousands of survivors of the Sichuan earthquake have been forced to abandon what is left of their homes as heavy rains and floods hit much of southern China." The Telegraph

Floods close "lifeline" highway to Sichuan quake zone: CHENGDU, June 8, 2008 - Provincial authorities reported that a major road to Wenchuan County, epicenter of the Sichuan earthquake, has been blocked after floods destroyed two sections of the road.

Although the report says that flooding was normal for the area at that time of the year .. there is still evidence of a certain kind of earthquake - these were shallow quakes - having a strong relationship with or effect on the upper atmosphere and cloud formation.

Throughout history strange atmospheric phenomenon have been observed locally days or hours before earthquakes occur. Floating balls of light, strange clouds or unusual effects are observed in the sky above a quake zone. This atmospheric earthquake phenomenon is not new .. the ancient Chinese documented strange atmospheric phenomena associated with earthquakes.

Bizarre Glowing Clouds & Earthquakes
Big, shallow earthquakes give a warning signal, say researchers: Before an earthquake, the stressed fault releases gases into the atmosphere. The release of radon gases three days prior to the May 11 Japan earthquake triggered observed changes in the atmosphere over Japan.

There is clearly a visible relationship between the energy released by earthquakes and a change in the atmosphere. It may even be that earthquakes are a natural mechanism for regulating the Earth's atmospheric pressure and humidity, clouds and moisture. Perhaps similar to the gasses released from a volcanic eruption, earthquakes alter cloud formation and rainfall.

Here you have this potentially destructive event - in human terms - that may be an essential mechanism for maintaining the balance of life on a planetary level.

With the massive release of gasses and energy (electrical charge), is it possible that certain types of earthquakes are also sky-quakes. In other words, the energy and electrical charge from a quake stimulates the upper atmosphere on a scale difficult to imagine.

Did the Yunnan earthquake break the three year drought?

I think it is more complex than that. The activity of volcanoes and earthquakes over extended periods of time appear to regulate, balance and change atmospheric conditions that both destroy life and create or maintain life on Earth.

The effects are felt all over the Planet.
