4.1 Richters Strikes 9 Miles North of Napa, California!!! After 4.1 East of San Diego Yesterday!!! Should We Keep Watching California?

Does seem like California is all of the sudden getting a lot of shaking all at once there in the last two days and I must admit to having been at least a little bit surprised late on Thursday Night when my phone rang with this here latest earthquake and now so near to San Francisco! I hadn't quite made it to the point where I really wanted to mumble the words all clear just yet and being in the midst of landfalls of a Super Typhoon Noul near Philippines and Tropical Storm Ana at Myrtle Beach says there COULD be at least small amounts of new earthquake energy around in addition to the remainder of Vanuatu, PNG, Kathmandu action, too!

A little bit of research has revealed that the recent 6.8 Solomon Islands Earthquake struck at 5:48pm Central Time on Wednesday, while the Calipatria that struck East of San Diego that same day was at 10:15pm Central Time and the aftershocks of BOTH of these earthquakes lined up so nice and neatly and very nearly filled at least one whole entire page there. Where the correlation that I'm talking about comes in is that we are looking at two very similar shaky situations directly across the Pacific from each other and they appear to be more than connected, they appear to be the same shaking sort of back and forth or all at once if you will. Reason I'm declaring this right here and now in todays EQ Blog is due to the fact that it's all a part of that major earthquake energy that was supposed to have "Officially Passed" but in accordance now with some other writings I have submitted, I today want to extend this watch through Saturday, May 23, 2015 or Day 70. This is really a long-shot as any of my best most dedicated readers probably know! Saturday being Day 70, we will now keep watching and see what shakes and if Day 70 will be the end of it all. . . which it's looking like it will not be, but let us observe just the same. This means alert will continue for Californnia and our West Coast and that big Alaska Earthquake could still shake, yet!!!

Check out the final paragraph of this "Extension" to CEPEC/NEPEC@ http://earthquakealert2.blogspot.com/2015/05/extension-of-eq-alert-for-california.html SAYS exactly what I just said in the above paragraph and goes on to say until June 2, 2015!!! Basically what it says is that we should watch until it is all over and that will be the final day.

There has also been a 3.7 Richters very near location of the "Channel Tunnel" under The English Channel and so far no reports from there and now regarding the 4.1 a few miles North of Napa, California near Yountville, California. . . there are now Felt Reports from all over San Francisco and can all be seen at Earthquake Central@ http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/41-richters-earthquake-at-yountville-9.html Be Watching, Now!!! LOOKS Like More Earthquakes To Come!!! Thank-You for Reading!!! EQ Guy

4.1 Richters Strikes West of San Diego! Followed By 2.9, 3.3, 3.3 So Far, MORE Coming??? ALSO: Final Show For David Letterman!!!!! Congratulations, Dave!!!

It almost looks like this could become that swarm that has been going around, but since I've already all but written all of that off, I just can't honestly write out a serious blog saying just that! Rather, this would have to be something else all together, or SHOULD be something else altogether anyways, since Day 65 came and went and I did not see fit to extend that alert anymore beyond Day 65 and as of this writing am leaving Day 65 as the new "Day 60" or general end date for most such alerts. Here is the felt report from 4.1 Calipatria Earthquake that struck at the very Southern tip of Salton Sea there to the East of San Diego at 8:15pm Pacific Time on Wednesday:

I spotted one 3.5 Richters Earthquake up there in that far Northwest Alaska Region where we HAD been watching for something major to shake. . . but nothing ever seemed to have happened up there, although this here 3.5 does very much show that there has been something pushing up into that region, I want to point out here that the alert for "Pacific Turning" should effectively end now and technically there should thus NOT be such a thing as the big Alaska Earthquake we watched, and watched for up there. No. Unless you want to go on and consider the possibility of a "Day 70" or "Day 80" Earthquake!?

Speaking of that I went ahead and did a triple-check of my facts regarding the landfall of Hurricane Camille on August 17, 1969 because that had been one Major Windstorm with so far no resolution and when I factor in this new alert having now run all the way to Day 65, I found Santa Rosa 5.6 and 5.7 Richters and today famously the biggest earthquake event to strike the San Francisco Region since the 1906 Earthquake at the time!!! Day 45, and in the process of my much earlier research possibly never before discovered! But today you all might agree that such a landfall of a Hurricane Camille at the Gulf of Mexico, not sure exactly what cities, WOULD INDEED equal an event of the proportions of San Francisco 1906 as this very famous pair of Major Northern California Earthquakes is today! You can almost even say today Day 45 is out there, being beyond a lot of the longest dates I've ever had to track and surely appears to be beyond my early discovery back in my earliest days of earthquake research!!!

There was also a 6.8 Richters Solomon Island Earthquake that struck later in the day Central Time with apparently no tsunami. This in the midst of what has been starting to look like an all clear might be on the way. . . of course with the exception of anything that might still be following that landfall of Tropical Storm Ana at Myrtle Beach on May 10 and we might still need to keep an eye on Richmond, and WDC for something with regard to that one, too!

AND, Of Course a BIG Congratulations to Mr. David Letterman, on Final Show/CBS!!!!! Good Luck with whatever you do, Dave!!!!! Sincerely, EQ Guy

4.4 Richters Strikes 37 Miles East of Kathmandu, Nepal and Things Could Be Settling Down, There!!! Wednesday Update: 6.0 Tonga, 5.8 Vanuatu

UPDATE: Watching all the earthquakes worldwide very closely there has been a 5.8 Near Port Vila, Vanuatu and a 6.0 Tonga and while there was also a 6.7 at Pacific-Antarctic Tectonic Plate Boundary, you are pretty much up to date on what's shaking and the remainder of this EQ Blog explains that. I will be back with a complete update later today or in tomorrows EQ Blog. Here's what's going on courtesy of Tuesdays EQ Blog:

We've been watching for the earthquakes to finally eventually start slowing down in both of these otherwise distant regions of the Indio/Australian Tectonic Plate and as of today it is looking like that may be what is happening here! Of course I'm talking about both Papua New Guinea, and the Kathmandu Region of Nepal.

On the subject of PNG Earthquakes over the New Moon Window, starting at the beginning of the New Moon Window on Saturday, here's that list, check out the dates and times on both of these lists:
4.9 149km ESE of Kimbe, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-18 21:24:28
5.0 121km S of Kokopo, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-18 15:42:25
5.7 149km SW of Panguna, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-18 12:04:52
4.7 120km S of Kokopo, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-17 10:54:56
5.0 14km SSW of Rabaul, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-16 22:56:14

Starting to NOT be a lot of shaking there anymore, and coincidentally matches the list of earthquakes that continue to shake Nepal: AND Here's the earthquakes that have struck around Nepal since Saturday:
4.4 35km NNW of Ramechhap, Nepal 2015-05-18 17:49:50
4.3 27km ESE of Panaoti, Nepal 2015-05-17 00:45:37
4.4 30km S of Kodari, Nepal 2015-05-16 18:15:25

So, if nothing else shakes either of those places of which the chances are now dramatically dropping at every moment, then this SHOULD be the unofficial end of all the shaking all together! At least until the next major source of potential earthquake energy occurs and heads up to that region or either region for that matter. And with all due respect for that Super Typhoon that just "Brushed" Philippines, I do not believe brushing was enough to start any more Major Alerts for that already pretty devastated region. Have to sort of keep watching those numbers, though, because I understand a lot of people are still very nervous up in Kathmandu! The numbers will eventually all go down and shaking WILL subside until the next alert, which of course you will first read about right here in the EQ Guy's EQ Blog!!! Thank-You For Reading!!!

2.6 Malibu With LOTS of Felt Reports and Just a Mile From Beautiful Downtown Malibu!!! Also a 5.5 at Mid-Indian Ridge! BOTH Within One Hour of Exact Moment of New Moon!!!

Not sure as this EQ Blog is going to press right at the moment if there are going to be a huge number of felt reports from all over Los Angeles or not. Looking at the following list of felt reports, I thought it not really big enough to dedicate its own entire page at Earthquake Central, so here is that list right here, right now! However looking at the clock just now at press time it appears this one just shook about an hour ago and so I will have to update it mid-way through the day on Monday.

City.......CA.Zip...USA...................................................#.....Km
Malibu, CA 90265 United States of America.................17.....14
Agoura Hills, CA 91301 United States of America.........8.....18
Calabasas, CA 91302 United States of America...........7.....18
Topanga, CA 90290 United States of America...............1.....20
Westlake Village, CA 91361 United States of America....11.....22
Thousand Oaks, CA 91362 United States of America......7.....24
Santa Monica, CA 90402 United States of America...........1.....25
West Hills, CA 91307 United States of America................1.....25
Thousand Oaks, CA 91360 United States of America.......8.....28
Marina del Rey, CA 90292 United States of America.......1.....30
Culver City, CA 90232 United States of America.............1.....35
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254 United States of America......1.....38
Los Angeles, CA 90021 United States of America..........1.....48
Carson, CA 90745 United States of America.................1.....51
Ontario, CA 91761 United States of America.................1....107
Laguna Hills, CA 92653 United States of America.........1....108

EXACT MOMENT of the May 2015 New Moon will be or WAS at 11:16pm Central, and 9:16pm Pacific Time on Sunday Night, so I can hardly believe there is so much earthquake stuff going on right at the exact moment as the New Moon crosses over the path between the Earth and the Sun or whatever they do at that exact moment! We can now probably expect that as the paths cross and the moon continues on its journey beyond that crossing that there will be a lot more earthquake stuff happening, too!!!

So, in terms of Universal Time, or "Greenwich Mean Time" or the time in England that the whole world considers to be "Universal Time". . . as far as that is concerned the exact moment of new moon was May 18 at 4:16UTC, and Malibu was 3:27UTC, and 5.5 Mid-Indian Ocean was 4:02UTC or exactly 12 minutes before the exact moment, while Malibu looks like it shook about 49 minutes before the new moon! As of this writing and this EQ Blog going to press there have not been any significant shakers AFTER that exact moment which is right now about an hour ago, but be watching because the New Moon Window runs all the way through Monday and in to early Tuesday and just that one Malibu shaker alone was awfully big as Malibu Earthquakes go, while the 5.5 Mid-Indian tells me there is quite a lot more movement still going on around that Indio/Australian Tectonic Plate. Kathmandu could get more shaking, but remember that a 5.5 Mid-Indian Ocean along with just the few shakers remaining in the Papua New Guinea series does not hardly foretell too big of earthquake heading to the top of that tectonic plate so I'm betting it SHOULD NOT lead to 7 more Richters up that way. Must always be prepared of course no one really can tell you what the percentage of chance for big earthquake at Kathmandu is!!! EQ Guy

This Weeks "Earthquake Minute" Show Went Great!!! Now, Todays EQ Blog!!!

Hawaii was really shaking on Friday!!!!! Check out the newly updated entire list of big shakers there from the past few days at Earthquake Central: http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/lots-of-shaking-at-volcano-hawaii-heres.html THESE Have now been shaking, shaking, shaking even since I updated prior to posting!!! You may check top-most recent one and if it does not say an early morning hour. . . then know that there's probably a LOT more and I'll update again in the morning. Not sure what might happen in Hawaii and at press time I'm wondering if evacuations could be wise there, is it going to erupt and what effect will the New Moon have on Hawaii this weekend! Be Watching Hawaii and be prepared!!!

This weeks "EQ Minute" went real well there in the studio and with the wonderful help as always from my friend Jaguar!!! Please feel free to stop by the station online any Friday at www.wortfm.org and click on "Listen Live" to hear me and Jag talk shakers!!! Here's the transcript from Fridays show: http://earthquakealert3.blogspot.com/2015/05/this-weeks-earthquake-minute.html

I know I have not said too much about New Zealand, because they did get that earthquake and they have long gotten sort of lost in the midst of all the earthquake news of late!!! But they showed up early Friday with this 4.5 and here's the full report on that:
Close to 1000 Felt Reports including Christchurch, Wellington, and Auckland.
NZST Fri, May 15 2015, 5:34:35 pm, Magnitude, 4.6, Location: 5 km south-east of Seddon
Time
2015-05-15 05:34:35 (UTC)
2015-05-15 00:34:35 (UTC-05:00) in your timezone

Nearby Cities
23km (14mi) SSE of Blenheim, New Zealand
71km (44mi) SW of Karori, New Zealand
74km (46mi) SW of Wellington, New Zealand
81km (50mi) SE of Nelson, New Zealand
85km (53mi) ESE of Richmond, New Zealand

The New Moon Window will start late on Saturday Night and the New Moon Window will run all the way through Monday, so we pretty much already know and can count on some Major Shaking!!! Might need to watch Kathmandu as sorry as I am to say it, folks!!! Especially be watching out around Richmond, Virginia and Washington, DC and I notice The Dalles, Oregon had an earthquake just prior to this EQ Blog being posted and so that region is also now inline for some shaking from landfall of Tropical Storm Ana at Myrtle Beach.

Had To Extend EQ Alert For California and West Coast Due To All The Shaking Continuing!!! Now Past Day 60!!! First Time Ever!!!

First story to start out todays EQ Blog is the fact that as May 13, 2015 came and passed, it became necessary for me to extend that already standing alert for California and West Coast by submitting an Extension to the California and National Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Councils. You can see that submission right now along with links to the originals at EQ Blog-2: http://earthquakealert2.blogspot.com/2015/05/extension-of-eq-alert-for-california.html IT wasn't actually the first time it has gone to Day 60, but it does seem like it was the first time it has gone past Day 60. The record should however reflect the fact that a couple notable alerts have yet to be resolved and the primary one is that landfall of Hurricane Camile. I do not believe that up to this point I have actually accounted for all of the sum total of that potential Major Earthquake Energy likely generated by that landfall and similarly Hurricane Andrew does not seem to have been conclusively accounted for either. In both cases I am suggesting today that I might NOT have researched as far beyond those landfalls as Day 60. . . and today we are going beyond that possibly to Day 70 or 80 depending on when all the movement of the Indio/Australian Tectonic Plate finally stops.

At press time I discovered a slight problem shaking over in Hawaii and a search revealed that the "Lava Lake" over there DREW DOWN!!! Measuring in yards, so it was quite a draw down and THAT was when all the shaking started, too!!! LOTS of shaking!!! Here's a link to the entire list from Hawaii at Earthquake Central: http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/lots-of-shaking-at-volcano-hawaii-heres.html

I have to once again THANK all of my new readers in the United Arab Emirates as well as the folks reading my EQ Blog in Nepal as my Google Page View Report is showing me! I will ask God to watch over all my Great New Friends in the Nepal and Kathmandu Regions and we are all very sorry for the Great Loss there! God Bless!!!

Coming up next in the midst of all the earthquakes happening around the world will be the Exact Moment of the May 2015 New Moon on Sunday Night, May 17 at 11:16pm Central Time, so the Window will start on Saturday Night at 11:16pm Central Time and run through Monday Night at 11:16pm Central and 9:16pm Pacific Time. I'm sorry to say that it is even looking like Papua New Guinea IS NOT STOPPING all the shaking from the May FULL MOON!!! What are we going to do when the NEW MOON arrives? How bad can it get, because we really do not need the increase of potential earthquakes from that New Moon coming this weekend, do we.

Watching Alaska for any sign of the big earthquake that is missing in that region, here are a few most recent ones:
4.7 72km ENE of Chernabura Island, Alaska 2015-05-14 21:54:41
4.0 43km NE of Amatignak Island, Alaska 2015-05-14 11:34:28
2.5 53km ESE of Nikolski, Alaska 2015-05-14 06:33:11
2.7 116km NE of Chignik Lake, Alaska 2015-05-14 01:59:03

Keep watching because there are a lot more earthquakes to come before this series of Major Earthquakes is a long way from being over!!! Something could shake our East Coast, yet, too!!! EQ Guy

Here's How The Tectonic Plate Moved and Caused The Kathmandu Earthquakes!!! AND Could Cause MORE!!!

The full moon appears to have INTENSIFIED all of that shaking that was going on at Papua New Guinea that initiated over the May 2015 Full Moon Window and THUS lasted for a full WEEK after the full moon and beyond the end of the full moon window. Therefore it also seems to have been that movement of the Indio/Australian Tectonic Plate which was all involved from the full moons added pull and however increased from pull of the full moon, that shaking DID seem to have led to Kathmandu Earthquake of May 12. All having started with landfall of Super Cyclone Pam at Vanuatu on March 13, 2015 followed by 7.7 Richters Papua New Guinea with Tsunami on March 29, and then the big Kathmandu Earthquake on April 25, 2015. That first Kathmandu Earthquake looks like it was probably about 32 or 33 Days after PNG and was then followed by the May 2015 Full Moon on May 3 along with all the shaking at Papua New Guinea AGAIN!!! That time it never stopped shaking for a week as I described above and very obviously intensified by the full moon!!! Finally on May 12 Kathmandu again, this time at 7.3 Richters and most likely sooner following PNG the second time due to the fault lines in that region being already shaky! Or whatever word you want to use to describe the fact that it HAS already been shaking and moving. . . making it much more susceptible to move especially with all the shaking going on at PNG on the far reaches of the same tectonic plate!!!

Next up is the fact that I always like to make it a point whenever a big earthquake WAS NOT the Grand Finale!!! That's exactly what I did the day after that 7.7 Earthquake-Tsunami Event at Papua New Guinea that started the whole movement of the Indio/Australian Tectonic Plate movement when it struck PNG on March 29, 2015 and Check Out that EQ Blog: http://earthquakealert.blogspot.com/2015/03/77-richters-png-shaker-was-not-main.html Of course I mentioned Nepal, again in the very first sentence there if you did not click on it. . . might click just to see one more time I warned about a potential Major Earthquake there.

All of the sudden Philippines is now showing up in the lists of latest earthquakes, now??? Check out these three from Wednesday and watch to see what happens next in that region where it's been rather quiet for some time!

4.4 78km NNW of Burgos, Philippines 2015-05-13 15:41:51
4.5 7km NNE of Bacon, Philippines 2015-05-13 12:00:13
4.7 14km ESE of Prieto Diaz, Philippines 2015-05-13 10:55:08

I can't honestly remember the last time the Philippines was shaking and they did just have a near landfall of Super Typhoon Noul on May 11 and this could become a huge shaker and otherwise earthquake energy heading up into China or wherever that straight line leads to over in that region! I'll have better info as the days get nearer to a big shaker over there. There was also a 4.4 that struck practically right in the middle of Hatachi, Japan! Very near Tokyo and probably felt there, too! Here's an abreviated felt report from that one:

City.....State...Japan..........................#.....Km
Hitachi, Ibaraki, Japan......................2......44
Kashiwa, Chiba, Japan....................1.....102
Kōriyama, Fukushima, Japan...........1.....104
Chiba, Chiba, Japan........................2.....120
Tokyo, Tokio, Japan.........................3.....128
Kokubunji, Tokio, Japan..................1.....141

There will still be an EQ Alert for a few places there around our East Coast where Tropical Storm Ana just made landfall like on Sunday and it should be a serious enough alert that we can almost count on some shaking! You may be interested to know that big one that shook the Washington Monument was just hours after the landfall of Hurricane Irene at Puerto Rico on August 21, 2011 and the 2011 Virginia Earthquake struck on August 23, 2011 at around 1:51pm Eastern Time. Therefore you could say this next Major East Coast Shaker was due to strike YESTERDAY!!! Be Watching!!! EQ Guy

Of Course I Said To Keep Watching Nepal, And Kathmandu Got a 7.3 Richters Earthquake on Tuesday!!!!!

Probably going to be another one of those where all my best readers already know all about what happened on Tuesday up there in Kathmandu, Nepal. I have no doubt that there are enough of you reading this blog right this minute who knew exactly what direction the Indio/Australian Tectonic Plate was moving. Most of you have been watching since last weekends full moon and watched as that huge swarm at PNG just continued on, and on, and on as I even continued that watch far beyond the usual number of days. Of course we had been watching for something big to shake. . . so we may leave it at that for today and hope the best for all our friends up there in Kathmandu!!! Here's the updated list of all the most recent earthquakes at Kathmandu, Nepal at Earthquake Central: http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/73-richters-east-of-kathmandu-nepal.html FOLLOWING is a greatly abbreviated "Felt Report" mostly containing names of towns that I had heard of, but be it known it was felt everywhere as you can see by the furthest ones at the bottom of this list 1870 miles away!!!

City......State......Country...................#.....Km
Kathmandu, Kathmandu Nepal........24......78
Kirtipur, Kathmandu Nepal...............38......82
Dhankutā, Dhankuta Nepal................1.....159
Bombay, Maharashtra India...............1....1674
Bangalore, Karnataka India...............1....1870

AND there was also a 6.8 Richters Earthquake struck just to the north of Tokyo, Japan with 23 felt reports from Tokyo. Reports indicate it was very near that same epicenter as the 2011 Honshu Japan Earthquake only on this occasion no injuries or damage was reported.

Now there were those two landfalls and Ana at Myrtle Beach will certainly be responsible for some shaking that will definitely shake out there on our East Coast somewhere at some point very soon! HERE is a Great Quotation from one of my best EQ Blogs of last week: "Just as I was posting this blog, I notice Japan, Indonesia, Nepal and Fiji are showing up on the USGS List of latest earthquakes with some BIG earthquakes!!! Watch those places now especially!!!" And here is a link to THAT particular EQ Blog of last Friday: http://earthquakealert.blogspot.com/2015/05/are-we-now-looking-at-1000-foot-tsunami.html

So, that ongoing swarm that seems to have moved to Bridgeport, California could very well become the next Major Shaker but remember that was all shaking before Kathmandu let loose once again, but keep watching just the same there because this alert WAS extended 7 to 10 days into next week as a precaution and because something MORE could shake, yet!!!

Landfalls of TWO Big Windstorms Will Mean MORE Major Earthquakes!!! Need To Be Watching For That!!! Is Cascadia Coming!? UPDATE: 7.3 Richters Near Kathmandu!!! More Death and Destruction There!!!

UPDATE: There was a 7.4 Richters Shaker although it's been downgraded somewhat, just East of Kathmandu, Nepal early on Wednesday! According to CNN downgraded to 7.3 and a billion more dollars damage with 38 deaths reported! SEE The 7.3 and a 6.3 Aftershock, etc. at Earthquake Central: http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/73-richters-east-of-kathmandu-nepal.html References in todays already written EQ Blog might now reflect certain movement of Earthquake Energy and where next? NOW Todays EQ Blog:

These are not your ordinary big windstorms, either! I've seen the Super Typhoon at Philippines described as the biggest windstorm ever to strike that region in the history of the month of May! Although since we are basically mostly concerned with how big the windspeeds are, month of the year won't increase the susceptibility for Major Earthquake Energy being generated you understand. Does tell us for sure that we are looking at big windspeeds and a line of new Major Earthquake Energy that looks to be headed up into China, but still the early hours after all that info coming in on top of Tropical Storm Ana. . . so give me into the upcoming EQ Blogs for full descriptions of both of these.

Until then we will most notably want to be concerned with that dangerous landfall of Tropical Storm Ana at Myrtle Beach!!! Because this will now dictate that it should in the coming hours and days result in earthquakes in that immediate region of the Carolinas and the Richmond, Virginia/Washington DC Region and these should not take too long to show up there! In the long run it looks like the line will lead up into the Seattle, Washington Region, too! Coincidentally the Alaska Shaking has not exactly shown up in its entirety, either and in fact here is a fairly notable one from the last 48 hours:

M4.5 - 51km SE of Cantwell, Alaska
63.077°N 148.194°W depth=67.6 km (42.0 mi)
2015-05-11 09:25:42 (UTC)
2015-05-11 04:25:42 Central Time

Nearby Cities
51km (32mi) SE of Cantwell, Alaska
189km (117mi) NNE of Knik-Fairview, Alaska
194km (121mi) S of Badger, Alaska
197km (122mi) S of Fairbanks, Alaska
737km (458mi) WNW of Whitehorse, Canada

AND in the process of waiting and watching that area for something MUCH More Major, this is a general movement that might probably indicate something is still going on up there! MOST Unfortunate that while we watch for a whole lot of now apparently missing earthquake energy. . . to find there is still that vulnerable Cascadia Fault situated up there right in the middle of all of this!!! And with that sum total of all the PNG Shaking still as of yet unaccounted for, too!!! For folks keeping track of the shaking in Northern California, here's the updated list of all the shakers still currently going on at Bridgeport, California: http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/swrarm-at-bridgeport-california.html

A close check of that up to now shaky Papua New Guinea Region revealed this message: "0 earthquakes in map area! No earthquakes to display". . . so I changed the parameters to 7 Days and the most recent ones to be revealed were from May 11 and only 3 of those with the first one on the following list even dated May 10 so these 3 might be the conclusion of it all:

5.5 158km SW of Panguna, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-11 06:51:20
4.2 151km SW of Panguna, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-11 03:00:34
4.9 146km SW of Panguna, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-11 00:18:17
4.6 150km SW of Panguna, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-10 21:58:21

Looks like that huge swarm might have ran for EXACTLY a week past the exact moment of the Full Moon!!! What a surprise for guys who normally already track such facts as that one and still rather new to you and me! We will also want to note that at some point during all that, Bridgeport, California seems to have taken over and could become serious, and so we MUST NOW Watch California, Eureka, West Coast, Cascadia, Seattle, and Alaska to see if, when, and where something MAJOR Might Strike NEXT!!!!!

Is All The Shaking Now Going On in California? COULD All of it have Migrated From Papua New Guinea To California!!!? AND Will Tropical Storm Ana Shake Washington, DC and Richmond?!

Haven't had quite enough time to actually negotiate whether this here big new swarm that we are looking at is all of that Earthquake Energy migrated from Papua New Guinea incredibly to Northern California, now, or not. The following list that I have just now examined late on Sunday night prior to writing Mondays EQ Blog is a whole lot of small earthquakes dating back to May 4, 2015 although that date would more logically be the first day in a search which was set for 7 days in the first place! Therefore I will be watching this activity into this week and we will see what happens with it but be aware. . . it could become trouble before this is all over with the later part of Sunday having actually became Mammoth Lakes Earthquakes and somewhat fading from Bridgeport. Since this new migration has just started very late on Sunday we will need to observe it in order to best guess what it is going to do next. . . or WHERE exactly it might go to next! COULD be Virginia City/Reno, or most unfortunately could migrate to a more heavily populated region such as San Francisco or even become just one big Major Earthquake somewhere, too!!! Here is a link to the updated Bridgeport, California Swarm as of early Monday Morning at Earthquake Central: http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/swrarm-at-bridgeport-california.html

Ironically in Fridays "Earthquake Minute" I notice I discussed all of that Major Earthquake Energy and was speculating that it could become something as big as a 10 Richters Earthquake. . . OR a thousand foot tsunami and can not hardly believe that today, Monday, we could be talking about it INSTEAD becoming a huge Major Earthquake Swarm at Bridgeport/Mammoth Lakes, California!!! Here's one more chance to view the transcript from Fridays "Earthquake Minute": http://earthquakealert3.blogspot.com/2015/05/earthquake-minute-for-may-8-2015.html

I'm not sure as of press time how this next one fits into this here scheme of all that's going on now in California, but there was a 3.8 Richters earthquake that managed to ring my phone at some point during the day on Sunday. Epicenter was near Beautiful Downtown Grapevine, California and very near where I worked at a big power plant for Pacific Gas & Electric. Here is the felt report with a lot of names of small towns all the way to Hollywood and Los Angeles which COULD and generally has meant especially recently, that WILL BE the town where the next major earthquake WILL STRIKE!!! Look closely at this list because the last name on this list. . . is Los Angeles!!!!! At Earthquake Central: http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/38-richters-strikes-near-beautiful.html

And as we now watch very anxiously to see how big this shaky California thing will become, there has now also been a landfall of a new Tropical Storm at North Carolina the landfall of Tropical Storm Ana with winds that were last reported at 60mph but could possibly have been upgraded at some point prior to landfall and I will have more updates on the latest on that brand new big windstorm in tomorrows EQ Blog and possibly even some brand new earthquake forecasting to go along with it! Until then be watching around Richmond, Virginia and Washington, DC because it doesn't take long for earthquake energy to travel from Camp Lejeune to Richmond, believe me!!!!! EQ Guy

UPDATE: Tropical Storm Ana About To Make Landfall at South Carolina and North Carolina With 60mph Windspeeds!!!

UPDATE: That headline previously read "Sub-Tropical Storm Ana" but as of Saturday Morning it now looks like it's been UPGRADED to a Tropical Storm, now! In every other way all the information that I have already written about in todays EQ Blog will remain pretty much the same with the exception of the fact that we could be looking at possibly bigger earthquakes in the affected areas as the result of this big windstorm now intensifying!!! NOW Todays EQ Glog:

There is also Typhoon Noul about to make landfall at Philippines with winds of 110 knots and gusts of 135 knots and the big news with Noul is that it is forecast to turn towards the Northeast and then be headed directly for the Southern Islands of Japan before probably making landfall at some point somewhere along the Japan shoreline very near Tokyo. There is the potential for a direct hit, although it does not look like that is currently forecast to happen, but this would greatly affect our west coast if it did. We will know more as that big windstorm strikes Philippines in the coming hours and we find out what sort of turn it is going to make.

Tropical Storm Ana is more commonly being called a Sub-Tropical Storm and wind speeds are apparently just below whatever number they would need to be at in order for this windstorm out in our Atlantic to be upgraded to either a Tropical Storm or Hurricane. It is also my understanding that the word "Sub-Tropical" might refer to the fact that an actual hurricane travels at a much lower elevation-altitude than a usual storm and that the sub-tropical part of it may also mean this storm is more usual in the sense that it might also not be tropical. Still going to be a lot of winds striking the coast of South Carolina and North Carolina and if they get enough damage there it could be at least a small EQ Alert for whatever area is in the path of some brand new Earthquake Energy. So be watching even as those winds approach for earthquakes in the Carolinas and all the way up into Tennessee, Virginia, and Kentucky!

Just a few more earthquakes to report at New Guinea and am not sure if these could yet be considered garden variety:
4.5 110km WSW of Kulumadau, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-08 23:18:55
5.2 146km S of Kokopo, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-08 22:27:30
5.1 124km SSW of Taron, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-08 04:07:05
5.3 31km E of Kandrian, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-08 02:52:05

Fridays "Earthquake Minute" went well and since it basically just covered pretty much all of the same stuff I have been covering in my blog I did not decide to post the script from that show, maybe in a later blog, which now that I think about it might not be until Monday unless something else shakes before then! Otherwise continue to be watching because there are probably still some Major Earthquakes out there!!! EQ Guy

Are We Now Looking at a 1000 Foot Tsunami Circling The Pacific!? Should We Prepare For One!!!?

As Day 60 is now approaching and will actually fall on this coming Wednesday, it occurs to me it might be time to think seriously about that extension due to the fact that sooooo much shaking is now going on at Papua New Guinea!!! Without going into all the technical stuff too much further than that, besides just to say "Possible BIG Tsunami," it has now been a week and the shaking hasn't stopped out there around the tectonic plate boundary between Pacific and Indio/Australian Tectonic Plates!!! Just on Thursday it was all over the news that another 7.1 Richters struck and those huge aftershocks just keep on shaking, too! In fact it even looks like they are now moving to the east, closer to Vanuatu where it is my opinion this all started on March 13, 2015 with that landfall of CAT-5 Super Cyclone Pam!!! An alert that might normally only run like 30 or 40 days as you know if you've been following as I was counting them, NOW looks like I will have to extend the "Big EQ Alert" at least to Day 67, or Day 70!!! That will now be until May 20, or May 23 and we will certainly see as those days near, exactly how many days this new maximum length of time for a major alert WILL GO!!! We'll only know when everything shakes, gets it all over with, and FINALLY comes to an end somehow, somewhere! Be Watching because that chance is out there that it could be 10 Richters and a 1000 Foot or more high tsunami event!!!!! COULD be something big, anyways.

I have recently been having the opportunity to be "On-The-Air" occasionally on Friday Afternoons to do my brand new what I am calling "Earthquake Minute"!!! Feel free to stop by later today and give the show a listen like between 4:15 and 4:30pm Central, 2:15pm Pacific at http://www.wortfm.org/ and CLICK on Listen Live!!!

And now for something completely different!!! For anybody who just so happened to hear today or any days New "Earthquake Minute" and missed either of my past "EQ Radio Shows" Here's the transcript from my 2014 EQ Radio Show: http://earthquakealert3.blogspot.com/2014/09/transcript-2014-eq-radio-show.html AND Here is the transcript from my very first EQ Radio Show back in 2013 with even more great stuff: http://earthquakealert3.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-eq-radio-show-transcript-aired-on_4.html

In the event that I go on and discuss the Volcano-Blue Sky Story on todays "Earthquake Minute," here is a link to a great story all about how that huge volcano eruption thing might have worked: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/wp/2015/04/24/the-epic-volcano-eruption-that-led-to-the-year-without-a-summer/

Unless something else comes along that will conclude todays EQ Blog with mostly all of that shaking going on at Papua New Guinea, which I have a feeling is going to be leading to yet another Massive Earthquake disaster and possible Major Earthquake-Tsunami Event! Possibly affecting California and our West Coast if you can comprehend a ONE THOUSAND Foot Tsunami circling the Pacific!!! (Or maybe a couple hundred feet now that I'm proofreading it) Just as I was posting this blog, I notice Japan, Indonesia, Nepal and Fiji are showing up on the USGS List of latest earthquakes with some BIG earthquakes!!! Watch those places now especially!!! Thank-You For Reading!!! EQ Guy

Has Papua New Guinea Swarm Finally Ended? Where Might We Expect All The Shaking NEXT?! UPDATE: a 7.1 PNG With 11 More Aftershocks so far!!!

UPDATE I'm not sure how this here 7.1 Richters Papua New Guinea Earthquake will fit into todays previously posted EQ Blog, but there have also now been 11 Aftershocks including a 5.5 and many 5's as of 10:30am Central Time. This epicenter looks like it's about a hundred miles east of previous epicenters so there could be even more going on with that and shaking/migrating could continue,too! NOW Todays EQ Blog:

A look at these four earthquakes that struck that shaky Papua New Guinea region says that it must be about finished shaking out that way. . . and leaves me wondering if the shaking isn't going to now show up somewhere else especially around the Indio/Aust. Tectonic Plate!!! Here is the list starting from 1:05am Wednesday Morning Central Time:
4.8 128km S of Taron, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-06 21:15:03
4.4 130km WSW of Panguna, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-06 07:39:07
5.2 144km S of Kokopo, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-06 02:06:48
4.7 15km ESE of Kandrian, Papua New Guinea 2015-05-06 01:05:17

Those are about the final four from that region, although I went and checked to see for sure and found that there had also been four others that struck at some point in time between the last update of the entire list at Earthquake Central and the first one on that there list, so if anybody has not viewed the entire list it is now up to date at Earthquake Central@ http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/earthquakes-at-papua-new-guinea.html

AND for those of you who might have actually been IN that 3.5 Richters Near San Francisco Earthquake, Here is that Felt Report: http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/35-richters-at-concord-oakland-san.html

Or the Southern California one at Corona, too!!! Here's that Felt Report From that 3.1 Richters Corona, California also on Wednesday: http://eqalert.blogspot.com/2015/05/31-richters-strikes-corona-california.html

Hello, if you are reading this EQ Blog today and just so happen to be in The United Arab Emirates I want to say a very special Thank-You for all of you in the "UAE" who are reading! Not exactly sure who might read EQ Guy over in those parts. . . but it just so happens that I actually DO know one person over there!!! So, hello to the one person over there in UAE who actually knows the EQ Guy!!!

Here is an Out-take from a past EQ Blog pertaining to that Massive Earthquake we had been watching for prior to Kathmandu 2015!!! Here is a great quotation from it: "Continue to be watching for a Massive Earthquake-Tsunami in the coming hours and days! A few of the signs of the sort I watch for the most seem to be continuing including an earthquake at Nepal, Mid-Indian Ocean, and around Indonesia. Here's the felt report from 5.0 Nepal: Kathmandu, Kathmandu, Nepal.....2 Reports....315 Kilometers from Epicenter. Enough shaking that it looks like it is very possible this massive one is out there prowling somewhere!!!!! EQ Guy" Although for whatever reason it did not occur to me right at that moment exactly WHERE it was going to strike!!! And a lot of you probably even recall my use of the word "Prowling" and very ironically "Somewhere"!!!??? EQ Guy just did not seem to know exactly where at the time even though he used the word "Nepal" like 5 times in one paragraph! You can view that entry from now TWO DAYS before that Nepal Earthquake struck@ http://earthquakealert.blogspot.com/2015/04/los-angeles-is-shaking-commentor-and.html

Continue watching for all of the things that could happen around the world as far as Major Earthquake stuff is concerned!!! Especially due is that Anchorage-Alaska Earthquake of 6.3 or 6.4 Richters and hopefully one of those where it strikes so far from civilization that you will need me to even tell you it struck if you know what I mean! Also ALL THE SHAKING at Papua New Guinea is almost a guarantee of trouble lurking on the horizon and a lot of it!!! EQ Guy
