Expected Earthquake, Volcanic or Storm Activity for the Next 1 to 5 Days
Are YOU Prepared?
October 2, 2005
By Stan Deyo
Reduced stresses showing at the lower end of the Juan de Fuca and out to sea along the Mendocino and Murray Fault zones.
The HUGE thermal signal of yesterday is still present today and showing signs of a spinning heat source like a severe storm.
Stress pattern drifting SE and reducing in strength.
Mid Atlantic Ridge:
There is a weak signal along the Ridge itself about Latitude 0 (the Equator).
The Indian Ocean:
Although I have not circled this region, there is a strong, rapid, thermal anomaly just under India. It could be a seismic signal as well.
The seismic threats are reduced today but the west coast of the USA is still under stress and a matter of concern.
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 circles in varying shades of red are quake prediction zones Stan made from 1 to 4 days ago - with dark red being the oldest ones. White circles are Stan's prediction zones for today. Tomorrow these white circles will become light pink and will get darker as each day passes until they are removed.
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.
