Over the past several days a rapid increase in seismic activity has spread out in multiple directions from the West Pacific.

November 18, 2017
The result has been multiple large earthquakes above M6.0 on both sides of the Pacific, and a connection of noteworthy M5.0+ events across thousands of miles of plate boundaries.
A direct earthquake forecast warning was issued for China at the border with India, and Myanmar on November 12th, warning for 7 days at the location. Today the exact location in China was struck on day 5 of the warning watch time period.
In the warning issued for China, the “middle point” or the “fulcrum” was shown to be at the China side of the India Myanmar border region. The warning which was issued was done in video , and in text, and called for people to watch for M5.5 , up to M6.5 as a top end to have a plan for — as we said — JUST IN CASE something larger hits.
It is clear that the past several days of seismic activity has spread across thousands of miles from the West Pacific extending towards Europe, and the Americas.
At times like this, when seismic activity is rapidly increasing over days (instead of weeks or months), it would be prudent to dust off your earthquake plans if you live “downstream” from one of these events.
Downstream implies there is a direction to the flow of the seismic pressure, which there is by the way. If you’d like to know more about pressure transfer, you can begin your journey of discovery here:
Always remember to have an earthquake plan, and be ready.
Don’t be scared , be prepared.
