The earthquake forecast issued for this week called for Northern New Zealand to be struck just North of White Island by M5.0 to M5.5 activity.
Today (November 22 ), a M5.5 earthquake struck Northern New Zealand – just as expected.
This location was a topic of discussion in last nights earthquake update. Now, the exact location talked about last night has been hit today.
In addition to New Zealand being struck by the expected M5.0+ earthquake in the exact location warned, Taiwan was also directly struck by M5.1 activity in the warned location.
The warning for Taiwan to be struck by M5.0+ earthquake activity was issued 3 days ago in the weekly earthquake forecast.
See the warnings for Taiwan, and New Zealand here:
Check off these two locations from the named list of areas to watch. The areas named to watch are in the above video, including Taiwan, and New Zealand.
Now that New Zealand , and Taiwan are moving as expected, we must watch the other warned areas downstream from each of these locations.
If you are not aware of the locations which are downstream from the current activity, make reference to the arrow chart seen here:
In light of the activity which took place this past week, always remember to have an earthquake plan.
This week should also see large movement take place.
Don’t be scared, be prepared.
