1/01/2015 — 5.1M earthquake strikes off the coast of North California

A noteworthy 5.1 magnitude earthquake has struck off the shores of Northwest California.

January 1, 2015: 5.1M earthquake off the shores of California, and new swarm develops at the border of Nevada and Oregon.


2 days ago, on December 30 2014, I made a post on a earthquake which occurred just South of Los Angeles California — happening near a few offshore drilling platforms.

In the website post from December 30th, I made note of the event, an said we need to watch the area for larger movement (based upon the activity showing near LA / oil platforms).

quote my forecast from 2 days prior:

“Overall, we can expect the movement to continue in the region, especially due to the movement occurring along the edge of the Craton, as well as the excessive movement happening around the Pacific plate.

Indeed it is not just the fracking / drilling operations we need to be watching, but also the dormant volcanoes (salton sea, mono lake, clear lake, mammoth mountain etc..) for movement in the near term.”

Now that a 5.1M earthquake has struck near the coast of NW California, this confirms the pressure rebuilding on the West coast causes activity at known volcanic sites.

This 5.1M event happening very close to the fresh lavic fields formed off the coast of Oregon.

lava fields off Oregon story in the MSM here:



In 2011, and 2012 researchers discovered new volcanic vents off the coast of Oregon, reaching South towards the border of California. The new lavic fields were discovered when sensors for detecting earthquakes were COVERED by 10+ feet of new undersea lava.


The area which showed movement two days ago , and the area which just had the 5.1M earthquake, both are offshore fault locations, and both areas which have drilling platform activity.

This activity is expected, as the pressure on North America keeps resetting itself in the Pacific Northwest.

After we see movement on the West coast like this 5.1M event, we need to watch the edge of the craton for possible larger earthquakes in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas….

After we see movement in the aforementioned states, we should see activity in the Southeast to East United States (Alabama, Georgia, and the Carolinas).

There is a remote chance that the East coast (far NORTHEAST) could see movement over the next several days.  New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, and New Jersey.  Be on watch.

Finally, after all the above movement takes place, we can expect a reset of the pressure to occur again, this next time, it should occur further NW from this current California 5.1M earthquakes (Off shore of Oregon or British Columbia).

We can expect all the movement discussed above to happen over the next 7 days (starting today, January 1 2015 @ 900am CDT).

past 48 hours of earthquake jan 1 2015
January 1, 2015: Past 48 hours of earthquakes 2.5M+ in the United States (up to 9am CST). Movement along the edge of the craton (middle south portion) in Texas and Oklahoma – multiple 3.0-4.0M earthquakes. After the movement in TX and OK, we saw a reset of the pressure occur off the West Coast of California. This means NEW pressure is building from the West, thus we need to watch the edge of the craton from West to East (yet again).
