Expected Earthquake, Volcanic or Storm Activity for the Next 1 to 5 Days
Are YOU Prepared?
September 15, 2005
By Stan Deyo
ALERT FOR THE ENTIRE INDIAN OCEAN COMMUNITY CONTINUES TODAY
For the last six days I've seen seismic pressure signals all around the eastern and northern plate boundaries of the Australian-Indian Tectonic Plate. You can see warning circles as shades of red for the four days prior to today's circles which are in white. These signals continue to indicate a major plate stress similar to the one that caused that Richter 9.+ in Sumatra last year. Today, the stresses have moved right over the area of the tectonic plate where that huge temblor and subsequent Tsunami occurred.
The stress in the northeastern Indian Ocean today is still large. In yesterday's report, I drew a white outline along that stress zone's center line. The seismic stresses all along the northern edge of Australian-Indian tectonic plate over the last 6 days do indicate a developing threat. Thus, my advisory for Northern Sumatra is still to the 19th of September
Japan appears quiet for now.
Fiji has a potential seismic event in the Richter 4.0 to 5.0 range.
Although I do not see a direct threat on the US West Coast today, I do see an indirect threat forming out to sea from San Francisco. The white circle is on the Murray Fault ridge. It is a small signal and may disappear tomorrow. However, I will be watching this area as it was one of the two ridges that caused me to make the "red alert" of 2-4 August this year (see the report for these days).
The entire planet's surface appears to be showing signs of increasing instability. Recently, radical theories concerning the change in Earth's diameter have been published in the world of geophysics. These papers suggest strongly that the Earth is now 25% larger in diameter than it was in the time of the dinosaurs. They state that the tectonic plates are not floating on the magma, but are attached to the magma. Furthermore, plates are being constantly expanded as magma wells up from an expanding core thus increasing the diameter of Earth.
It is time to prepare your home, car, workplace... and yourself for the growing threat of mega-quakes in the Indian Ocean and along the US West Coast.... Some folks will never prepare and some will chide those who do so until the day the disaster actually happens. It takes courage to prepare when even members of your own family make fun of you for doing so. Learn a lesson from those Americans who were caught without personal provisions for the Katrina disaster: Dare To Prepare!
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. Go to the raw data map where it is easier to see the areas of concern. Go to Stan's earthquake map archives.
NEW FEATURE: The red circles are quakes predicted 5 days ago, designated with a "4", within Stan's current window. Light red circles are quakes predicted 4 days and so on up through white circles which are today's quakes for the current window.
DEYO NOTES: For earthquake maps, see the USGS "shake maps" (click anywhere on the global map for a closer view). For quakes USGS may not list, go to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center's map and scroll to the bottom of the page for a global view. You can compare these maps for the next 5 days to Stan's NCODA maps, to see the hits of his seismic target zones (white circles).
Earthquake lists can viewed at EMCS and at USGS.
Ecuador's Geophysics Institute at the National Polytechnic School, does not list quakes on a daily basis as does the USGS and other entities, but when there are significant events, they post them in PDFs.
Disclaimer: Some of the forecast stress areas can be in error up to 30% due to cloud cover variations and false signals from buoys.
