A large M6.7 (M6.5) earthquake has struck the central Mid-Atlantic ridge directly on the “letter X”.
It is also worthy to make note this rare event struck at the exact location we were watching for pressure to transfer to.
The pressure transfer zone is indicated with a large red arrow pointing from South Americas coast to the Mid-Atlantic ridge. The arrow shows which way pressure flows. Ultimately the seismic pressure flows from West to East in these locations.
This large M6.7 (M6.5) earthquake struck at the predesignated pressure termination point marked with a letter X.
Information on the M6.5 from the USGS:
The seismic pressure is a different force than the earthquakes themselves.
As the seismic pressure is generated in the West Pacific (rising up from below the plate) the force spreads out across the plate boundaries flowing in a path of least resistance away from the location which is causing the push.
When the seismic pressure flows out of a deep earthquake area, the fingerprints of this invisible force are revealed by noteworthy sized earthquakes which are usually 1-2 full magnitudes larger, and usually much more shallow in the crust (up above the deep event).
Please reference this newest pressure transfer map below for an idea of how the plates transfer this seismic pressure from region to region.

Always remember, have an earthquake plan, and be ready – just in case.
If you don’t already have an earthquake plan , now is the time for you to develop one.
I think our motto applies now more than ever…. don’t be scared, be prepared.
