This “forecast” applies for the next two weeks from today : 10/2/2011 @ 700pm CDT.
In the last 14 days, we only see ONE 6.0+ magnitude earthquake being recorded.
Compared to 2-3 weeks ago.. we were seeing approximately ONE PER DAY.
This is a NOTICEABLE down-tick in large earthquakes.
The 5.0 and 4.0 magnitude earthquakes are continuing around the ring of fire… to the north in Alaska, and to the west.. Japan .. to the southwest in Vanuatu, New Zealand, Indonesia and the Philippines.. these west and south Pacific areas are the most active, and I believe the other areas of the Pacific are trying to “catch up” to this movement.
2.0 and 3.0 along the north american craton.. I name all the US states in the video.
As long as the West Pacific keeps showing this activity, we can expect a 5.0 and greater threat watch in all the named areas around the ring of fire… and even along the craton edge.
Across the cratons of North America and South America… Puerto Rico at the center east… watch these areas as well for the next few weeks (5.0 and greater).
Europe, watch for 4.0 to 6.0 threat watch.. 4’s and 5’s to the north and west of the Alps.. 6.0 threat further south into Greece and the Mediterranean Sea — east to Turkey.
Continue to watch Japan for large earthquakes greater than 6.0…. Alaska is due for another 6.0 or greater as well… next two weeks.
