A 6.2 Magnitude Earthquake Struck the South Sandwich Islands, in the South Atlantic Ocean, an Hour Ago.

September 2, 2011 – A 6.2 Magnitude Earthquake Struck the South Sandwich Islands an Hour Ago: The earthquake occurred 14 miles north-west of Visokoi Island, South Sandwich Islands; 170 miles north of Bristol Island, South Sandwich Islands; 1,280 miles ESE of Stanley, Falkland Islands; and 2,122 miles south-east of Buenos Aires, Argentina (see map).
The tremor occurred at 2:49AM at the epicenter. It was September 3rd, at 12:49AM in New York (EDT), 11:49PM (September 2nd) in Chicago (CDT), 10:49PM in Denver (MDT) and 9:49PM in Los Angeles (PDT).
The quake was 106 kilometers (66 miles) deep. There are no reports of tsunami warnings or watches.
This was the third major earthquake to strike in the last 18 hours! A 7.1 magnitude quake hit the Aleutian Islands, Alaska at 3:56AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) today, and a 6.4 magnitude tremor stuck the Santiago del Estero, Argentina region at 6:47AM today! Additionally, the earthquake locations are widely dispersed; with the Aleutian Islands quake located at 52 degrees north latitude and 172 degrees west longitude. The two quakes, in or near South America, occurred at 28 degrees south latitude and 63 degrees west longitude and 57 degrees south latitude and 27 degrees west longitude, respectively. Does this forecast significantly increased earthquake activity for September, 2011?
If these three earthquake locations were ship bearings, I would plot (estimate) the next earthquake to be a 6.6 magnitude tremor, located at 24 degrees south latitude and 83 degrees east longitude. The approximate date and time would be September 5, 2011 at 1:00AM PDT. This would place the tremor about 3,000 miles south of the southern tip of India and 2,000 miles south-east of the island nation of Madagascar!
