here is my latest earthquake forecast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BALOHIFxyM&feature=channel_video_title
Roughly every day to day and a half, we are seeing large earthquakes (greater than 6.0) occur around the entire ring of fire .. also adjacent areas receiving pressure from this movement on the Pacific plate.
Expect 6.0 and greater quakes almost daily into the foreseeable future, areas around the pacific and along the craton boundary .. need to have earthquake preparedness plans in place.
