Back on January 11th, we reported on ANP that several days before a massive, 7.6 earthquake struck in the Caribbean Sea, causing a tsunami warning to be issued to several Caribbean islands, ocean water had suddenly and mysteriously 'disappeared' in locations more than 2,000 miles apart, both north and south of the epicenter of that quake.
As videographer MrMBB333 told us in a video that we used within that story, "water is trying to tell us something".
Well if water suddenly and mysteriously disappearing in the Gulf of Mexico and Pacific Ocean then was trying to tell us something, then certainly temperature spikes of over 130 degrees in the Gulf of Mexico must be trying to tell us something, too!
As we see from MrMBB333 in the 1st video below, something incredibly strange is going on in the Gulf of Mexico with air temperatures recorded at over 130 degrees over and over again the past week, with temperatures fluctuating between 'normal' temperatures in the 75 to 80 degrees range before suddenly shooting up to at least 133 degrees as we see in videos and the 2nd image below.
What might be causing the huge temperature fluctuations in the Gulf of Mexico we're witnessing in the screenshot above from the 2nd video below from videographer rushfan9thcmd, who has been keeping track of this very strange anomaly now for over a week?
As we see in the next screenshot below of that same area which we've turned into a gif photo, the high temperature spot is fluctuating, as if it is the Earth itself breathing, spiking to up over 133 degrees before falling back to 'normal' levels then spiking once again. What in the world is causing this strange anomaly in temperatures? Is something 'venting' in the Gulf of Mexico?
Called 'Door Point', the proof of volcanic activity was found within an area which had previously been designated as being free of volcanism as seen in the next image below. Interestingly, that'igneous free' area includes where we are now witnessing these extreme temperature spikes in the Gulf of Mexico as seen in the images above and the videos below.
Might an ancient and long dormant volcano be underneath the water of the Gulf of Mexico, suddenly coming back to life, its venting causing these temperature spikes we're witnessing? Much more on that theory below with evidence that indeed we might be about to witness something un-thought of should a long-dormant volcano in the Gulf of Mexico be awakening.
While the 'Ring of Fire' has been heating up with volcanoes all around the planet now erupting and big earthquakes indicating an even bigger one is surely ahead as we hear in the 3rd video below from Infowars, it's not lost on those paying attention that the Gulf of Mexico borders the 'Ring of Fire' as we see in the next image below. Showing the world's volcanoes, while the Eastern half of the US is largely 'volcano free', there are 12 volcanoes in the Caribbean islands with volcanoes marked in red in the image below.
With the Caribbean Islands on a totally separate 'plate' from the rest of North America as seen in the next image below which also shows us some of the volcanoes in that region, and knowing that traces of volcanic activity have been found in Lousiana, Texas, Mississippi and other US states currently free of known volcanoes, is it really out of the realm of possibility that an ancient volcano, or at least volcanic vents, are somewhere within the Gulf of Mexico?
The usual theory as to the origin of the Caribbean Plate was confronted by a contrasting theory in 2002.
The mainstream theory holds that it is the Caribbean large igneous province (CLIP) which formed in the Pacific Ocean tens of millions of years ago. As the Atlantic Ocean widened, North America and South America were pushed westward, separated for a time by oceanic crust. The Pacific Ocean floor subducted under this oceanic crust between the continents. The CLIP drifted into the same area, but as it was less dense and thicker than the surrounding oceanic crust, it did not subduct, but rather overrode the ocean floor, continuing to move eastward relative to North America and South America. With the formation of the Isthmus of Panama 3 million years ago, it ultimately lost its connection to the Pacific.
The more recent theory asserts that the Caribbean Plate came into being from an Atlantic hotspot which no longer exists. This theory points to evidence of the absolute motion of the Caribbean Plate which indicates that it moves westward, not east, and that its apparent eastward motion is only relative to the motions of the North American Plate and the South American Plate.
Have we just found that 'long lost' hot spot that they claim 'no longer exists'?
And might the temperature fluctuations that we witness in the videos below be signs that something long dormant is suddenly 'breathing back to life'? As we learn more below in a story from National Geographic, the Gulf of Mexico is one of the most mysterious and geologically interesting stretches upon the Earth.
While we can't see any underwater volcanoes in the Gulf of Mexico, what if the entire Gulf of Mexico was the 'mouth' of the ancient volcano and the 'source' of the Caribbean islands when they were created between 69 million and 139 million years ago? While Wikipedia says the islands are thought to be linked to the Galapogos Hotspot, which is quite far away, is the truth closer to home?
While we're unable to see them, underwater volcanoes are nothing new and as the LA Times reported back in 2014, scientists had recently created a high-resolution map of the ocean floor revealing thousands of underwater mountains and extinct underwater volcanoes that had never been known before then. And while their map was twice as accurate as any map of the ocean floor before it, they quickly admit that it could only resolve features at least a mile high or bigger.
Enter this May of 2017 story from National Geographic which uses a new ocean floor map created by a government agency most have never heard of called the "Bureau of Ocean Energy Management" yet as we see in the photograph this new imaging provides below, we still know very little about the floor of the Gulf of Mexico with the image on the right the highest quality resolution that we now have, compared with the image on the left showing what we'd known before.
Might an ancient and long dormant volcanic vent in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico be causing the 'hotspot' that we see detailed in the first two videos below? And might the Caribbean Islands have been created by a nearby volcano, one that most believe no longer exists, rather than the Galapogos hotspot nearly 2,000 miles away?
One of the largest bodies of water in the world at a width of 810 nautical miles (1,500 km) with the entire basin about 600,000 square miles (1.5 million sq km), the photos above only give us vague pictures of depths up to 2,090 meters (approx. 6,800 feet) while the depth of the Gulf of Mexico at its deepest is about 14,000+ feet. Proving that there is much that we still cannot see below the surface, did volcanic activity millions of years ago in the Gulf of Mexico give birth to the Caribbean Islands?
In the interesting final video below, videographer Christienah Robertson Travis shares with us their theory that an underwater volcano in the Gulf of Mexico is responsible for the heat spikes that have recently been documented there and warns they believe what we're witnessing now in the water is more proof that massive 'Earth changes' are soon to come.
