Amendment To Official Prediction For San Fernando/Tijuana 7.9 By May 23, 2014

In the days following my original Submission which can be seen @ THERE had also been a major landfall of Tropical Cyclone (TC) Ita north of Cairns, Australia with wind gusts reported as high as 189 mph. Immediately following that landfall which even had simultaneous movement at a nearby tectonic plate boundary which was also coincidentally the place of origin of TC Ita, there was a 7.1 Papua New Guinea Earthquake. I also found one that struck at a small offshoot fault line that must have been directly beneath TC Ita as it passed over on its way to Queensland. The 7.1 struck exactly as the eye made contact with the point at Scottstown if any possible kinetic energy theories could be connected there.

In the days after the landfall there was additional movement out along that plate boundary in the form of an 8.2 later downgraded to 7.6 at Solomon Islands. Since that earthquake which became a series of probably aftershocks, a 6.2 has now also struck at Bellany Islands probably indicating the new Major Earthquake Energy from TC Ita is heading faithfully anong the line I predicted at its landfall. This could now mean the 8.2 downgraded at Solomon Islands was a foreshock of all the earthquake energy heading now across the Pacific Tectonic Plate (TP). Making it now potentially more certain that the San Fernando Valley, San Bernardino, La Habra, and Tijuana could get a Major Earthquake exactly as I discuss in my original submission.

At the same time there has now also been an 8.2 at Iquique, Chile, a 6.6 Nicaragua, and a 7.5 at Mexico, of course again downgraded to 7.2 which they seem to like to do. All of those as well as a 2.5 at La Habra April 18, and a 4.2 Near Bakersfield/Tehachapi early Saturday, April 19, 2014 seem to indicate our West Coast is actually now inline for the Major Earthquake Energy from BOTH of these two huge movements of the Pacific TP! Regardless now of if my "Straight Line Theory" crossing the Pacific TP is on or not, there will remain the fact that it appears to me the Pacific TP is turning towards the north and our West Coast is next in line.

Of course along the line of predicting that sort of TP movement it could even continue up into that Triple Plate Junction at Eureka, Cascadia, Seattle, and on up to Alaska where the reality of this 8.2 coming is not out of the question. Japan and Taiwan are also next in line along the edges of the Pacific TP.

Whether crossing in a straight line from New Zealand through Guam, Wake Island, and Hawaii, or working its way up the coast from Chile, Nicaragua, and Mexico, this potential 8.2 Richters Great Earthquake is headed in the direction of California and our West Coast and is getting closer as I write and submit this on April 19, 2014. The configuration of our Triple Plate Junction does not agree with the direction all this Major Earthquake Energy is coming from and they could now be in trouble up in Northern California, too!

This is no longer about being a formal prediction, it is a warning that there are a lot of Major Earthquakes currently happening around the Pacific Tectonic Plate and it does seem to be moving with California and Western United States very much in danger of getting the same amount of shaking as everybody else around the perimeter of the Pacific.

This Amendment is basically a request to accept the addition of La Habra, Eureka, Seattle, and Alaska and continue the previously filed April 9, 2014 Official Prediction through May 31, 2014 due to the addition of TC Ita. With all due respect for Japan, Taiwan, Queen Charlotte Island, and Vancouver Island all being outside the jurisdiction of the California and National Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Councils.

At best large scale earthquake preparations for a Major Earthquake should probably be undertaken including logistics of heavy equipment, first responders, radios, flashlights, tools, etc. if nothing else to assure ourselves we are prepared for anything! Full scale earthquake preparation is something that California and our West Coast needs to put some time into at some point in time, and April and May of 2014 might be a great time for that, not so much because of all the earthquakes around the Pacific but for someday when the next big California Earthquake does strike!

Thank-You Again for accepting this Amendment to Official Prediction San Fernando/Tijuana 7.9 by May 23, 2014

Ohio Earthquakes Linked To Fracking, A First For Region

Posted: 04/11/2014 7:39 pm EDT Updated: 04/11/2014 7:59 pm EDT

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Geologists in Ohio have for the first time linked earthquakes in a geologic formation deep under the Appalachians to hydraulic fracturing, leading the state to issue new permit conditions Friday in certain areas that are among the nation's strictest.

A state investigation of five small tremors last month in the Youngstown area, in the Appalachian foothills, found the injection of sand and water that accompanies hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the Utica Shale may have increased pressure on a small, unknown fault, said State Oil & Gas Chief Rick Simmers. He called the link "probable."

While earlier studies had linked earthquakes in the same region to deep-injection wells used for disposal of fracking wastewater, this marks the first time tremors in the region have been tied directly to fracking, Simmers said. The five seismic events in March couldn't be easily felt by people.

The oil and gas drilling boom targets widely different rock formations around the nation, so the Ohio findings may not have much relevance to other areas other than perhaps influencing public perception of fracking's safety. The types of quakes connected to the industry are generally small and not easily felt, but the idea of human activity causing the earth to shake often doesn't sit well.

The state says the company that set off the Ohio quakes was following rules and appeared to be using common practices. It just got unlucky, Simmers said.
