Expected Earthquake, Volcanic or Storm Activity for the Next 1 to 5 Days
Are YOU Prepared?
October 6, 2005
By Stan Deyo
USA: Los angeles up to San Francisco and eastward showing possible Richter 4+. Offshore and to the west the Mendocino Fault Zone is starting shows stress again.
Japan: Kyushu region showing signs of a medium seismic event.
Micronesia: Showing a strong seismic signal.
Australia: Offshore NSW showing stress in a minor fault line.
MacQuarie Island: Showing medium seismic signal.
Mid Atlantic Ridge at the Equator: Small seismic signal.
Dominican Republic: Small seismic signal
Sudan Port: Medium seismic signal.
India: Indus River delta in Indian Ocean showing strong seismic signal.
Today's seismic signals are mostly business as usual.
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 1 day ago and the lightest red being 4 days ago. White circles are Stan's prediction zones for today. Tomorrow these white circles will become dark red and will get lighter 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.
