11/21/2017 — Pacific Northwest / Vancouver struck by M5.0 (M4.7) Earthquake as expected

November 21, 2017

An earthquake measuring near M5.0 (M4.7) has struck off the shores of Vancouver Island in the Pacific Northwest.

Above: November 21, 2017 – Vancouver BC struck by the expected M5.0 range earthquake after weeks without any noteworthy activity reported. As expected, the zone directly next to the slow slip has been hit by a near M5.0 earthquake after the slow slip began to go quiet in Vancouver.

The earthquake forecast for this week called for upper M5.0-6.0 range activity nearby this location, therefore we are exactly 1 magnitude below what was warned to strike.   This lesser movement is good news for the West coast of the United States, and for Southern California (which is located downstream from this new earthquake in Vancouver).

It is worthy to note that Vancouver Island was a topic of discussion in last nights (Nov. 20th) earthquake update video seen here.

This new seismic activity is on the very low end of what we were expecting, and is a result of the “slow slip” transferring across multiple states in the Pacific Northwest.

See the forecast warning for upper M5.0 activity here:


We are now expecting Southern California to be impacted by new seismic unrest over the next several days which could be as large as the earthquake in Vancouver, or a few points less.    The M4.7 near Vancouver should drop to M4.5 or similar by the time the pressure reaches Southern California between Los Angeles, and San Diego.

The midwest United States (Oklahoma , Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana) needs to be on watch for a rapid increase in activity over the next several days topping out approximately 1 magnitude LESS than what struck near Vancouver.   Upper M3.0 to lower M4.0 earthquake activity is possible near each states fracking operations, as well as near Yellowstone national park over this week.

When pressure is placed from the Northwest, it follows a path of least resistance across the interior craton boundary, which leads to the man made perforations in the crust at the oil + gas pumping operations across the Midwest USA.

As we have said in all of our past broadcasts, we want people to have a plan for 1 magnitude greater, in case we are wrong in our power estimates, or in case outside factors indicate an increase rapidly occurring.

Don’t be scared, be prepared .  Make sure to have an earthquake plan.



11/19/2017 — Large M7.0 (M6.9) Earthquake hits West Pacific + M5.0 strikes North Italy as expected

The most current video update on the situation can be seen here:


November 19, 2017

Two sides of the planet are moving with larger earthquake activity as we were expecting.

Today a large M7.0 (M6.9) earthquake struck the West Pacific near New Caledonia / Solomon Sea, as well as a noteworthy M5.0 (M4.9) earthquake, and swarm which has now struck North Italy near Florence.

Above: November 19, 2017 – A large M7.0 (M6.9) earthquake strikes just East of the silent zone in New Caledonia.
Above: November 19, 2017 – Italy M4.9 + Swarm strikes near Florence Italy as expected.


These locations were the subject of discussion in last nights (Nov 18) Earthquake update video.

Both Italy, and the West Pacific near Solomon Islands were on watch this week based upon the warnings issued in the Earthquake forecast videos.  Florence was mentioned by name in the update(s).

See the most current earthquake update from last night (Nov 18) here:


Now that the West Pacific is again moving with near M7.0 earthquake activity, and since Italy is now swarming up to near M5.0, this is a good time for areas between the two locations to develop earthquake plans, and be on watch.

The new M7.0 in the West Pacific WILL be pushing to the West over the next several days, this means the West Pacific, Asia, and the Americas are going to be hit again this coming week with new noteworthy activity.

On top of the large activity being reported, additionally, a new deep earthquake has struck the West Pacific from below the plate.

Deep earthquakes are a warning sign that something larger may be coming within days.
