USA: Southern Mississippi River region: small to medium seismic signal.

Southern Japan and Ryukuyu Islands: Medium seismic signal.

Western Micronesia: Medium seismic signal.

Molucca Sea/East Timor region: Small seismic signal.

Australia: Queensland region and offshore toward the Barrier Reef showing STRONG seismic signal.

Easter Island: Small seismic signal.

Ecuador/Peru Border: Medium seismic signal.

Indian Ocean: East of the Seychelle Islands showing medium to strong seismic signal.

India: Offshore of southern India in the Arabian Sea shows weak medium seismic signal.

Today's major alert is for the Australian situation. For the last three days the entire region on the northeast section of the Australian plate has been grumbling. I think the next major event will be somewhere in this region.

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.
