Hi all again.

Had a strong feeling there was going to be a large quake very soon. As you all would be aware of now, is that there was a doozie of a quake M7.8 at 10kms deep in the Caribbean Sea - north of Honduras.
It has already been mentioned here in this thread, but thank goodness, as it turned out no-one was killed and no tsunami occurred [incredible considering the size and depth of the quake] and there was only minor damage to some buildings.

To be honest with you all, I was quietly thinking a large quake was possibly going to come up in Central America.

Beyond this large quake, there may be more smaller ones to come. The Gulf of California may come up with a quake of sorts and some of the energy which may have caused the large one today may travel north [potential several places] or NE or East....?

For now, Duck.

Major Earthquake Warning 21 February - 7 March 2018

by Frank Hoogerbeets, last updated 12 January 2018, 9:55 UTC


Note: There is a detailed coverage of this earthquake warning in a youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QczCRZ0Tt1U.

From 21 February to 7 March 2018 rare planetary geometry will undoubtedly cause a significant seismic increase, with probably two eartquakes aroound magnitude 7.8 at least. However, there is the potential for a mega-thrust earthquake with magnitude 8 or even 9, most likely in the first week of March.

Some of the planetary alignments are similar to those that occurred at the time of very large earthquakes, like the 1960 Chilean earthquake (M 9.5), the 1964 Alaska earthquake (M 9.2) and the 2004 Sumatra earthquake (M 9.3).

On February 21, three planetary alignments converge, which will cause a seismic increase from the 21st to the 24th.

2018-02-21 05:53:56 Sun-Mercury-Neptune2018-02-21 08:20:59 Mars-Mercury-Uranus2018-02-21 18:35:36 Earth-Venus-Neptune

On February 25 again three planetary alignments converge, and this will continue increased seismic activity from the 25th to the 28th.

2018-02-25 09:53:09 Mars-Venus-Uranus2018-02-25 12:19:55 Earth-Mercury-Neptune2018-02-25 15:58:13 Sun-Mercury-Venus

Around March 4 no less than six planetary alignments converge. This is very rare and it almost never occurs. What makes it particularly unique is the quadruple alignment on that day with Mercury, the Sun, Mars and Jupiter, accounting for four of the six alignments. It makes March 5 a candidate for large seismic activity.

2018-03-03, 21:45:21 Sun-Mars-Jupiter2018-03-04, 13:46:25 Mercury-Mars-Jupiter2018-03-04, 13:55:50 Earth-Sun-Neptune2018-03-04, 18:03:05 Venus-Mercury-Earth2018-03-04, 22:09:51 Mercury-Sun-Jupiter2018-03-05, 0:01:57 Mercury-Sun-Mars

With these multiple convergences this time-frame is more powerful than most other in recent years.

The Cascadia subduction zone comes to mind, as it is the only subduction area in the world that has not experienced a mega-thrust earthquake in recent decades.

In any case, if Earth is going to make up for the low average of larger earthquakes in the last twelve months, then it will be in this time-frame.

This is a timely warning so that everyone has a chance to prepare. And prepare people should, depending on the location and how earthquake prone the location is. There is no way to know exactly where larger earthquakes will occur.
A
This is a serious warning. We are definitely going to experience a significant seismic increase in this time-frame, but it greatly depends on the condition of Earth's crust and how the seismic increase is going to take form. But at least two big tremors

Hi tsunami and all.

I had a feeling we would see a possible run of large quakes, with the M7.6 near Honduras being the indicator of this potential. The latest large quake has just occurred off the west coast of Peru and other M7+. This, according to the authorities in the U.S. has created a tsunami potential of .5 -> 1m waves above tide level. As time goes on, more info will be available.

The time for large quakes may be earlier than Hoopers predictions, but he may be also correct for a quake larger than M7 in the time-frame he has discussed in his reports. [I haven't seen his info for a long time now, until you have noted such in your post tsunami].

I have stuck in my mind that there is going to be a large damaging quake in the short term - meaning one which may occur on land and not offshore. Of course folks, we always hope that these unwanted events do not occur - but we are at the mercy of Mother Earth and all of her influences.

For now, Duck.

Hi folks.

That large quake off the coast of Peru didn't, apparently generate a tsunami, but has caused damage to some homes, roads and sadly killed some people.
In my mind, I see the energy that has caused this and the other large quake in the Caribbean Sea may have been from energy driven in a NE direction from the Pacific east [lower]. In a way, I see that the first large quake may have been from the continent of South America being partially drive north into the Caribbean, and the associated energy also being driven into the coast of South America from the lower SE of the Pacific. [if that made sense]
The NE of the South American continent somewhere may come up with a responding tremor...?

Central America has responded with quakes in the M4+ region to the energy which drove the big quakes.

In the overall 'picture' of the Pacific, this vast region is throwing u quakes all over the place. I feel that Japan, or another nearby region/country, may come up with an M6+ at some point.

The Philippines, which I recently said would come up with quakes - and did - may go on to feel more tremors as their volcano is still energized. There may be some land cracks becoming evident again in some locations and maybe more tremors to come.

If I have my [un-researched] info correct, a volcano in PNG is also showing signs of activity.

Australia's tremors are still showing up, as pressures from the lower part of our continental plate is possibly feeling energy from the southern end [between Antarctica and Australia mainland. This is filtering into some vulnerable locations and affecting some of the mountain regions and deserts.
One thing I have noticed is that there seems to be more tremors of a slightly larger size than 'usual' happening in Oz at the moment. This has me feeling that there may be an outside chance of an M4+ pooping up somewhere on our continent soon.

Bass Strait or the Tasman Sea or the Southern Ocean [below Oz] may come up with a tremor soon..??

Canada west, offshore and surrounds is still throwing up the odd quake in response to pressures from the U.S. west coast and further south. In relation, Alaksa [gulf and surrounds] is still getting snagged with some energy causing quakes.

Kamchatka may come into the picture with an M5'ish at some point.

Easter island may come up with an M5.

As for other parts of the planet, there will be quakes coming up naturally, but for the time being this post will just be about the Pacific countries.

By the way, we have gone over 2.5 million views on this great thread cool smile

For now, Duck.

I meant "popping" in my last post grin

Hey Duck, thinking of you...we're having a heap of small quakes around our area at the moment. I posted about them here: https://goo.gl/1qyFoM Amazing to be able to hear them happening, would love to know what is going on under our feet.

BIG (prelim mag 8.0) shallow undersea quake just occurred south of Alaska with tsunami warnings in effect for parts of Alaska and British Columbia... tsunami watches for parts of California, Oregon, etc.

Aftershocks are now happening in the Gulf of Alaska after an hour of no shocks after the main tremor.

Decent size M4.2 just off the Coffs coast at 1.28pm - felt like a truck had driven into the side of our shop, the whole place wobbled. Despite dozens of earthquakes around our region over the last few days this was the first one I've felt (ever!)

Some of the previous ones have been mildly unnerving, but this was on another level compared to the others. Frightened the whole house.

Earthquakes have previously been very rare here, so it's definitely a bizarre, foreign feeling. Before this swarm of earthquakes over the past few days, I'd never felt one before.
Within a 100km radius of Macksville, 21 of 29 earthquakes listed since 1955 on the Geoscience website have occurred since Saturday morning:
Earthquake List 1955 to 24th Jan 2018

Just hoping the 4.2 quake will be as strong as it gets.

Hi folks.

I have been very unwell in the last 2 weeks particularly. I am aware of the quakes but have not had the energy to apply to commenting. So I am not being intentionally rude. When I feel better in the future [very soon hopefully] I'll join in again. Thanks for your understanding.

Duck.
