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.
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.
