By Stan Deyo,
Major areas of interest: the biggest concern today is the circle which includes Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier as well as the region out to the coast and beyond to the Juan de Fuca plate. Despite recent information to the contrary, Mt. St. Helens IS rumbling and pressure continues to build.
Nicobar and southern India continue to exhibit large pressures as does the antipodal Ecuadorian region.
I strongly advise watching the Pacific Northwest for increased seismic activity for the next five days.
Stan's analysis shows areas of possible earthquake or volcanic activity, or extreme storm conditions for the next 1 to 5 days. Pay particular attention to areas marked by white circles. The continuous yellow line denotes plate tectonic boundaries as well as the Ring of Fire.
Disclaimer: Some of the forecast stress areas can be in error about 30% of the time due to cloud cover interference and false signals from buoys.
