4/19/2018 — Rare Earthquake strikes Michigan / Ontario border @ OIL PUMPING OPERATION

A very rare M3.6 earthquake has struck next to an Oil pumping operation along the Michigan + Ontario Canada border region.

Full video explanation of this event here:

________

This graphic contains screenshots from Google Earth which clearly show the nearest Oil well is approximately 1.5 miles away.

_______

As the video above explains, this rare M3.6 earthquake comes directly from pressure which flowed out of Oklahoma pumping operations (Oil + gas) which were struck yesterday (April 18, 2018) by multiple M3.0 to M3.8 seismic events.

Human made drill points are vulnerable to seismic pressure flowing from the West coast towards the East coast.

The plate pressure transfer was explained in detail during this weeks Global Earthquake forecast.

4/16/2018 — California seismic activity — Back to back earthquakes shake San Francisco to San Joaquin Valley

April 16, 2018

California is beginning to see a slight increase in seismic activity, along with a noteworthy increase across the whole of the West Pacific (as expected).

Over the past few hours two back to back earthquakes measuring near M4.0 (M3.9 + M3.8) were detected and felt across the West Coast of the United States in the state of California.

The two felt events struck Central, and Northwest California from San Francisco to San Joaquin valley.

ABOVE: April 16, 2018 – Northwest + Central California were both struck by similar sized earthquakes measuring near M4.0 (M3.8 + M3.9). Both events struck within minutes of each other, and are directly related to one another.

Information on both earthquakes comes from the USGS:

The fact that California is now showing an increase in seismic activity coincides with the noteworthy increase in magnitudes, and frequency of occurrence in the West Pacific.

The number of M5.0+ earthquakes, and the number of deep events is on a definite upswing over the past 48 hours. (See below graphic)

ABOVE: April 16, 2018 – Past 48 hours of M4.0+ earthquakes in the West Pacific. Deep earthquakes are seen raised high off the globe for easy identification. The number of M5.0+ earthquakes has doubled in the past day from where things were at the end of this past week. All of the M5.0+ activity is centered around the deep earthquake activity, spreading out from the deep earthquake locations.

________

This past week (last 7 days), there was a noticeable decrease in activity.   The decrease was shown in this weeks earthquake forecast video, and was a topic of discussion.

As it was noted in this weeks global earthquake forecast, we were expecting a noteworthy increase in earthquake magnitudes, and number of events due to multiple new deep earthquakes which struck across the Pacific.

[At least six different deep events struck below the Pacific plate at depths from 250km all the way up to near 550km.]

Deep earthquakes cause shallower larger earthquakes, therefore the seismic increase is occurring just as we would expect — happening in areas surrounding the deep events.

The deep earthquakes put the plate into motion, which then perturbs adjacent plates such as North America, thus causing new earthquakes with larger magnitudes than the previous week.

_________

What do Deep earthquakes do?

Deep earthquakes occur in an area called the “asthenosphere”, even though these earthquakes are not felt by humans, these deep events place upwards pressure on the underside of the plate(s) causing shallower larger earthquakes (up to 1-2 magnitudes larger).

Shallow larger earthquakes can strike in the same location as the deep earthquake, or the nearest silent zone fulcrum point.

There is additional compensation movement of similar size which occurs on the OPPOSITE side of the Pacific plate when a large OR deep earthquake occurs.

Imagine the deep earthquake like a lava lamp ball rising up to the crust of the earth. Deep earthquakes can be recorded up to 750km. Asthenosphere deepest is 660km.

Here is a conversion chart , a guide for calculating depth into Magnitude increase.

This chart was developed by earthquake forecasting researchers Bella Virgo and Rebecca the Explorer:

ABOVE: Depth to Magnitude conversion chart – Pressure from below creates force up above (lever arm action). For every 100km depth , you are to add on 0.2 magnitude to the original deep earthquakes magnitude.. EXAMPLE :  M5.0 strikes at a depth of 500km .. it can cause a shallower earthquake up to 1 magnitude larger….. the deep M5.0 earthquake can cause a shallower M6.0 near the surface.
