January 18, 2014 – Earthquake Forecast for January 2014: The graph above shows the 10X Earthquake Power Ranking for quakes from 6.0 to 9.1 Magnitude. The graph was calculated using USGS (U.S. Geological Survey) computational tools.
In short, a 7.0M quakes has a 10X rating of 10.0, an 8.0M has a rating of 100 and a 9.0 = 1,000. The March 11, 2011 Japan mega-quake and Tsunami was a 9.0M event; while the December 26, 2004 Indonesia mega-quake and tsunami event was 9.1. The Japan quake devastated the coast of Japan near the quake. The Indonesia event impacted the entire globe, at least in the Pacific basin.
Using various astrological events in January (Jupiter opposite Pluto), February (Jupiter square Uranus), April (multiple + Eclipses) and May (Jupiter trine Saturn); I have prepared forecast graphs for the first half of 2014. By far the worst time period is from April 20 to the 24,with April 22 and 23 the worst days.
For example, the January forecast graph called for a 6.7M on the 1st and a 6.5 on the 13th. What actually occurred was a 6.6 at Sola, Vanuatu and a 6.4 off the coast of Hatillo, Puerto Rico.
What is particularly worrisome are the significant peaks in the forecast graphs for the first half of 2014.
I will forecast the rest of January and all of February in the next few days, including location, depth and magnitude.
The depth and location are very important, in terms of the devastation brought to the planet. For example, the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake was “only” a 6.3 magnitude quake, yet it severely damaged New Zealand’s second-largest city, killing 185 people in one of the nation’s deadliest peacetime disasters.
The quake struck the Canterbury region in New Zealand’s South Island at 12:51 pm on Tuesday, 22 February 2011 local time (23:51 21 UTC). The earthquake was centered two 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) west of the port town of Lyttelton, and 10 kilometers (6 mi) south-east of the center of Christchurch (see map below).
Because the quakes was so shallow it caused massive destruction and damages estimated a $40 Billion New Zealand Dollars.
What would happen if a 7.7m quake occurred directly under a major population center such as Los Angeles, Tokyo, Santiago, Chile; Mexico City; Lima, Peru; Jakarta, Indonesia; Sydney, Australia; Singapore; Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Moscow or Mumbai, India? The results would be biblical!
For example, a massive earthquake directly under Los Angeles, California would throw the U.S. into a severe depression. Stock markets would plunge around the world. Consider the fact that if California were a country its GDP would be ranked as the 12th largest in the world ($1.9 Trillion as of 2010). (Credits – Wikipedia, Google, MS Excel and the USGS).
