8 Richters Earthquake Struck Papua New Guinea on Saturday!!! That's Probably Now Headed For Peru!!! Or California/West Coast??? East Coast Is Shaking, Too!!! Watch BOTH Coast's, Now!!!

Just have to add West Coast out of the fact that there does right now appear to be like 8 Richters of Major Earthquake Energy crossing Pacific Tectonic Plate!!! There's California and our West Coast right there situated along that far eastern edge of that very same tectonic plate and it just so happens to be looking like this will probably cross and then strike here!!! Generally I like to just say because it was an 8 Richters THERE. . . it will probably be an 8 Richters HERE!!! Most likely much closer to Peru where I'm expecting it to strike, but must watch around here just the same you know. Here's what's already been shaking although these East Coast ones could be related to Winter Conditions, too:

Here is a Great Story with a lot of updated stuff from the Italy Earthquake/Avalanche with explanation on how they're digging tunnels to do these rescues there. @

There were several that struck up there around the recently fairly shaky Seattle Region, here is one of the bigger ones followed by the felt report that shows many from Seattle, too:

Checked around and for right now let's go with the snowfall total for Mammoth Lakes, California and that is around 27 feet of snow!!! Total I'm sure for like this winter season and it says it's by far a record there!!! For our purposes right this moment and unless somebody comes up with a more scientific procedure for calculating like we're doing. . . then let's just go with 27 feet and assume Tahoe has a lot of snow like that, too!!! Lots of snow might come to equal big earthquake, just saying, so in the mean time I had been wondering if this could be the pressure on Hayward Fault we've been watching for? Although the foot of those mountains where all this is going on lies further up past Sacramento more towards the foothills there, not all the way out to San Francisco Bay unless some layer of like bedrock or whatever reaches the Bay. Then this could be what we've been watching for and it could mean the next Major San Francisco Earthquake might strike San Francisco Bay in the coming days!!! Watch For that one!!! All the shaking on the East Coast. . .could always mean something for them, too, so watch both places!!! EQ Guy

This one just came in during the hours before I posted todays edition of my EQ Blog! Although if you check out the time closely and extrapolate it for Universal Time. . . then it does actually look more like this one happened at around 6 or 7pm Central Time! You could also say this one was predictable due to Italy just having shook yesterday and almost certain now Peru is next!!! But be watching all along our West Coast because this one is moving the Pacific Tectonic Plate right now!!!

In the event that we do have time for Avalanche "Earthquake Minute" I'll have one more eulogy for Jim Berkland but here's a heads up! The exact moment of that months full moon was October 14, 1989 at 1:33pm and the earthquake was on October 17, 1989 at 5:04pm Pacific or 3 days, 3 hours, 31 minutes after that moment. Not enough to warrant my own alert, but that range does still have some effect on fault lines and at least somewhat agrees with my saying "The more full; the more pull" and have to credit it with Jims today very accurate prediction!!!

Good Week-End, Everybody!!! EQ Guy

Shaking, Shaking, Shaking In Italy!!!!! Felt Report From That Lima, Peru Earthquake, And The Tectonic Plates Are MOVING!!! Update: Avalanche In Italy From Those Earthquakes!!!

UPDATE: Just saw this news that there's now been a big avalanche in Italy as a result of all the shaking you're about to read about next!!! Something like 25 missing in that! I'll have an update tomorrow. NOW Todays EQ Blog:

While there had been a landfall of a big Cyclone at India on December 11, I had written that alert out for UAE, Samoa, and Peru. . . but pretty much in every other way it still remains a big alert for all the usual places around that shaky Indian Ocean Tectonic Plate as this brand new big list from Italy will show you. Can't exactly say Italy won't get something more out of all this yet!!! Keep watching there as this big list shows:

4.7 8km NW of Amatrice, Italy 2017-01-18 15:16:12 (UTC)
5.2 4km N of Montereale, Italy 2017-01-18 13:33:37 (UTC)
4.1 7km WNW of Amatrice, Italy 2017-01-18 12:01:41 (UTC)
4.3 7km NNW of Montereale, Italy 2017-01-18 10:39:24 (UTC)
5.6 5km WSW of Amatrice, Italy 2017-01-18 10:25:25 (UTC)
4.5 10km NW of Montereale, Italy 2017-01-18 10:24:16 (UTC)
4.6 0km ENE of Montereale, Italy 2017-01-18 10:16:37 (UTC)
4.7 4km SSE of Amatrice, Italy 2017-01-18 10:15:32 (UTC)
5.7 5km WSW of Amatrice, Italy 2017-01-18 10:14:11 (UTC)
5.3 7km WNW of Amatrice, Italy 2017-01-18 09:25:41 (UTC)

Along with other places around that tectonic plate although my main focus has been Andaman/Nicobar Islands being directly across that Bay of Bengals from landfall there. Now here's the felt report in from Lima, Peru as I promised yesterday:

3.9 - 26km SW of Callao, Peru
2017-01-17 23:44:20 UTC

Lima, Lima Provincias, Peru..........3.....52 km
San Luis, Lima Provincias, Peru......5.....55 km
Huaral, Lima Provincias, Peru........1.....88 km

AND This one just came in a few hours before press time on Wednesday, too, also Peru although further from Lima and was not able to find Aqua Caliente on map for comparison:

4.3 - 14km NW of Atuncolla, Peru
2017-01-18 08:03:25 UTC

Nearby Places:
Cabana, Peru 9.1 km (5.7 mi) NE, Pop.
Atuncolla, Peru, 8.7 Miles NW, Pop. 12,654
Juliaca, Peru, 10 Miles SW, Pop. 245,675
Puno, Peru, 22.6 Miles NW, Pop. 116,552
Azángaro, Peru, 47.7 Miles S, Pop. 13,290

This one wasn't so urgent as all the shaking going on at Lima, Peru so here it is today from like yesterday now it was a big one for Cuba there! Followed by the felt report:

5.8 - 43km S of Guisa, Cuba
2017-01-17 09:08:01 UTC

Guisa, Granma, Cuba...........................3....45 km
Guantánamo, Guantánamo, Cuba.......2...148 km
Ocho Rios, Saint Ann, Jamaica...........1...168 km
Spaldings, Clarendon, Jamaica...........1...205 km
Half Way Tree, Saint Andrew, Jamaica.1...207 km
Montego Bay, Saint James, Jamaica....2...207 km

It even still surprises ME sometimes how accurate my "Go Straight Theory" can be and as a result we MUST keep a watch on that now very, very shaky Lima, Peru Region because I do at least know for sure there's been at least one Major Shaker that's all but destroyed that region on at least one occasion and seems to me it's been quite some time!!! Reletive certinty there's one coming, but we do at least know for sure there's one heading directly for them!!! A check revealed that it was originally TWO alerts for Peru with that first one now looking at Day 40 being on January 20! That day, or looks like Friday will also be Day 26 on the second alert so one or both of these could start happening right now! Probably why Italy is shaking, too! Because the tectonic plates are MOVING!!! Be Watching!!! EQ Guy

3.9 Richters Just a Few Miles From Lima, Peru!!! Big Alert Continues For Peru, But Always A Chance Big One Could Strike At Any Time There!!!!!

Looking at my sheet with those dates there on and I see January 15 was Day 21 after landfall of Super Typhoon Nock-Ten at Philippines. So we are now looking at Day 31 coming up on January 25. . . but this Major Earthquake, that I'm now saying 7.6 to 8 Richters for, could strike there at ANYTIME!!! And take a look at the 3.9 very near there and I'll have to wait a day to run the felt report because this one shook late in the day on Tuesday and so I'll have all that tomorrow! For now the list of "Nearby Places" has Lima, Peru posted at 24 miles away:

3.9 - 26km SW of Callao, Peru
2017-01-17 23:44:20 UTC

Nearby Places:
18.5 Miles SW of Callao, Peru, Pop. 813,264

23 Miles WSW of Surco, Peru, Pop. 251,648
24.2 Miles WSW of Lima, Peru, Pop. 7,737,002

Prior to discovering that Lima, Peru Earthquake, here's one that shook up around Paso Robles also on January 17 and possibly the big story for the day before Lima:

3.1 - 13km NE of San Simeon, California
2017-01-17 14:55:29 UTC

Nearby Places:

If I had a lot more time and space and there wasn't so much other stuff going on, I'd honestly go into more of the details on this one near Banda Aceh, Indonesia, however a lot going on so just mostly keep watching this region for a bigger earthquake:

5.1 - 85km W of Banda Aceh, Indonesia
2017-01-17 11:48:46 UTC

Nearby Places:
Lampuyang, Indonesia, 68.9 km (42.8 mi) WSW

So, the Anniversary of the Northridge Earthquake was on Tuesday!!! And I just Noticed it after I posted Tuesdays EQ Blog there!!! Thought I should include at least that one mention of it here for folks who might not have recalled January 17 1994 was the date of that big Southern California Earthquake!!! That was also the date when I had been doing a lot of acting in a lot of movies. . . and more or less decided right then and there to instead begin looking into the hows-abouts of earthquakes!!! It was the day I determined that I needed to begin at once to find out what caused earthquakes, because it could take quite a lot of time and there was no time to waste! I started on this big project immedietly that day!!!!! Today thinking I haven't done too bad because I am here today and starting to get pretty close to an accurate method for tracking them earthquakes!!! Thank-You for Reading! Couldn't have done it without my readers!!! Thank-You!!! EQ Guy

James O. "Jim" Berkland, July 31, 1930 – July 22, 2016

Great Loss To Earthquake Biz!!! I'll Miss Jim!!! God Bless Him!!!

Wikipedia Story@


FROM: "Kenwood Press" Community icon Jim Berkland dies, Dated 8/01/2016

Jim Berkland’s life here ended quietly early Friday morning, July 22, only a few days before his 86th birthday. He had spent most of his life in the Valley of the Moon, and he knew and loved our valley deeply, just as he was known and loved by many.

Throughout his childhood, Jim fished the streams and wandered the hills near Glen Ellen, learning the nature of the landscape. An avid writer, he wrote over a thousand poems about the wildlife and plant life of the area – and about the daily life of the people of our community. Because his poetry celebrated every aspect of the region, Jim was recently named Honorary Poet Laureate of the Valley of the Moon.

The boyhood naturalist grew to become a dedicated scientist, who believed in direct observation and critical thinking – despite conventional wisdom. His eager curiosity, combined with a generous and agile mind, led to discoveries that redefined the geologic prehistory of our region – finding fossils of sea life high in the Mayacamas range, and Ponderosa Pines (usually found high in the Sierras) in the lowlands of Nuns Canyon. Just this past year he found extremely rare tektites, fused remnants of a meteor impact, at Morton’s Warm Springs.

After receiving his degree in Geology at U.C. Berkeley, and serving as assistant professor at Appalachian State University in North Carolina, Jim returned to California in 1973 to become the first county geologist for Santa Clara County. Here he began to formulate some very original ideas about the nature and frequency of earthquakes.

His research was largely ignored, until his prediction of the destructive Loma Prieta earthquake appeared in the newspaper four days before it struck on Oct. 17, 1989. But he was promptly put on leave from his position as county geologist, for fear that his predictions could cause panic.

Jim was reinstated in his geologist position, though under restrictions. He continued to pursue his pioneering work in seismic prediction (he preferred the word “preparedness”), which remained both respected and controversial.

Though he had several California addresses and did some world travelling, the Valley of the Moon remained Jim’s beloved home. He adored his family – wife Jan, son Jay, daughter Krista, son-in-law Bill, and grandkids Kara and Jace – who regularly received his poems of deep affection. Jim also loved his community; over the decades he was active in our volunteer fire department, the community church, the Lions Club, the Jack London Foundation, and the Glen Ellen Historical Society. He happily struck up conversations with strangers. He readily shared laughter or gentle tears when he told stories about his experiences of life and the world that so fascinated him.

Toward the end of his life, Jim developed a deep interest in the world beyond. He was baptized through the Glen Ellen Community Church, where he remained a dedicated member until his death.

From his reflections about life and death, he published a poem, “Life in the Hyphen,” which can be viewed at

Some BIG Shaking Up There Around Alaska/Canada!!! Also Some Smaller Shaking Around Los Angeles, On The Anniversary of Northridge Earthquake, Too!!! R.I.P. Jim Berkland

A lot of severe winter conditions preceded the 1964 Great Alaska Earthquake!!! And all of this here shaking must have just taken place in the late hours of Monday!!! Could be a BIG ALASKA Earthquake coming. . . and this could already be all of it, you never can tell there! But do watch around Alaska for they can get some really big earthquakes there you know!!!

Here's those Los Angeles area earthquakes and I know full well that these might easily be considered "Garden Variety". . . but always worry me just the same when would you look at the lists of "Nearby Places" and just knowing ANY of those could become the epicenter of the next Big California Earthquake!!!

2.0 - 5km W of Malibu, CA
2017-01-16 18:45:00 UTC

Nearby Places:
Malibu, CA 5.0 km (3.1 mi) W

Agoura Hills, CA 16.0 km (9.9 mi) SSW
Malibu Beach, CA 16.0 km (9.9 mi) W
Thousand Oaks, CA 20.0 km (12.4 mi) S

Would you look at this epicenter and try to figure out the location based on it being 1 Kilometer Northwest of Universal City, 3 Kilometers South of North Hollywood, and 1.9 Miles East of Studio City!!! Might not be too scary at a 1.8 but it would sure do a lot of damage if it was about a SIX on the Richters Scale there!!!

1.8 - 1km WNW of Universal City, CA
2017-01-16 22:13:25 UTC

Nearby Places:
Universal City, CA 1.0 km (0.6 mi) WNW

North Hollywood, CA 3.0 km (1.9 mi) SSE
West Hollywood, CA 6.0 km (3.7 mi) N
Hollywood, CA 6.0 km (3.7 mi) NW
Finally I want to give a big "Shout Out" to Jim Berkland, whom I just found out had passed away during 2016!!! I have always had the most respect for all his work in the field of Earthquake Prediction and especially all his work with predicting that resulted in having predated the World Series Earthquake by something like a day or so!!! Most famously there was one newspaper article in the "Gilroy Dispatch" that was calling that earthquake the "World Series Quake". . . DAYS before it shook there!!! Jim will be greatly missed and expressing my deepest sympathy to his family, there, too!!! EQ Guy:(

BIG One struck in the middle of the Island of Sumatra, I think that's the name of that island) and as of this writing Banda Aceh has not showed up on the list, there are some of about the same distance from the epicenter that would indicate it must have been felt in Banda Aceh. In fact Kuala Lumpur is equal distance and had more than one felt report from there which follows the list of nearby places also interesting there:

Very busy today with the ice storm striking the midwest and work tomorrow so right now I thought I'd post what I have here and in the event something major should shake, the blog will already be up to date and ready for what may come along during the remainder of the ice storm which looks like it'll be going on a couple days yet, and with work tomorrow, not sure when next EQ Blog entry will be. Keep Watching for those earthquakes! EQ Guy

Snow And Rain Could Do Different Things With The Earthquake Situation There In California, Now!!!!! Now, Bad News California "Earthquake Minute" Video From Studio!!!

Here's Bad News California "Earthquake Minute" CLICK Arrow: SEE The Bad News California Earthquake Minute at YouTube@ And The Transcript @ NOW Fridays EQ Blog:

Have to mention this now because we're watching for the WORST to happen there in California!!! With big snows in the mountains and tons of rain across all of Northern California not to mention the fact that they've been taken off the drought list for the north, there. . . now it goes without saying that anything can happen there!!! These are not the normal conditions and all of my usual methods for watching earthquake energy travel goes WAY BEYOND all that right now!!! Therefore when I just now noticed a 2.8 at Monterrey, California it occurred to me there is a "California Mission" up there that at one time was heavilly damaged by an earthquake and earthquakes just do not strike up there around that region all too often! So that is just ONE of the many interesting things that could now happen with all this stuff going on there!!! Keep Watching Monterrey, and all of California!!!

Now would you look at all the shaking going on at South America!!! Virtually all of this going on with that January Full Moon high overhead, too!!! Or at least shining in through one of the windows at the house, here, will be high enough over head before the night is over, though, I know that for sure!!! Here's all the shaking at Central and South America:

And now a link to what I believe is proof that the following 1907 Kingston, Jamaica Earthquake WAS preceded by TONS of snow!!! Having discussed this one in yesterdays EQ Blog, first here's the link to the Wikipedia Page for the 1907 Jamaica Earthquake@ Here's The Proof December/January 1907 Did Have LOTS of Snow in Cal/Nev!!!!! You Won't Believe It!!!!! At EQ Blog@ GREAT STORY!!! Check That Out, There!!!

Of course with so much shaking there will probably be some updates over this weekend. . . but if not I'll see you all next week sometime or whenever something shakes!!! Thank-You For Reading, Have a Good Weekend!!! EQ Guy

Kingston, Jamaica Earthquake of January 14, 1907 at 6.5 Richters With 1000 Deaths WAS Preceded By Lots of December/January SNOW!!! Here's The Story!!!

Well, I found a whole lot of proof they had lots of snow in the Sierras prior to the January 14, 1907 Jamaica Earthquake:

K-9 Hero
On January 5, 1907, two miners were trapped in the mountains east of Gardnerville, Nevada, in an abandoned cabin where they had taken refuge from the snowy gales. Chris Jepperson and Jack Reynolds had floundered helplessly in 15-foot drifts, and now they were stranded at an isolated mine. After three days snowbound without food, the men turned to their one possible savior--Jepperson's cocker spaniel. They tied a message around its neck, offered a few encouraging words, and forced the dog out into the drifts to die or reach the town of Gardnerville, about 20 miles away. The heroic canine struggled into town three days later, and then it wandered around for two more days before someone noticed the emergency plea for help. Rescuers trailed the exhausted canine back into the mountains where they found Jepperson and Reynolds unconscious, but still alive.


Tons, And Tons of Snow Preceded 6.5 Jamaica Earthquake In 1907 With 1000 Deaths!!! Now Exact Moment and Final Hours of Full Moon, Too!!!

Exact Moment of the Full Moon will now be around 3am Pacific, 5am Central Time, althouggh probably now be past by the time most of you are reading this. . . but the Full Moon WINDOW won't be past and actually continues into Friday. Of course that 24 hour period would continue into the early morning hours of Friday, but as usual let's add a few hours to that for extra measure and just say mid-day on Friday for what all the effects of that added pull of the Full Moon could do there! I suppose you could say this one might be connected, although South America has been getting them so here's that one just the same:

I found this one to be interesting when I first noticed it early on Wednesday, but right at the moment as I'm writing this I have no idea what made it so interesting! I guess all of the felt reports from Tacoma might have had something to do with it:

2.6 - 3km SSE of Fircrest, Washington
2017-01-11 11:20:36 UTC

Tacoma, WA 98402 United States of America......2.....13 km
Tacoma, WA 98404 United States of America......1.....13 km
Tacoma, WA 98405 United States of America......1.....13 km
Tacoma, WA 98418 United States of America......1.....13 km
Gig Harbor, WA 98335 United States of America..1.....18 km
Federal Way, WA 98023 United States of America.1.....19 km
Bonney Lake, WA 98391 United States of America.2.....27 km
Seattle, WA 98148 United States of America.....1.....31 km
Shelton, WA 98584 United States of America.....1.....52 km
Kingston, WA 98346 United States of America....1.....68 km

I have to now add that intense amounts of snow are being reported up in the Sierras of California/Nevada, but a quick check on those other years with similar big snowfalls in that region did not produce any earthquakes to speak of. So, while they are showing amounts of over a hundred inches, the year 1959 had 189 inches and no earthquake followed. Must note that I have 884 inches reported in 1907, and also a 6.5 Kingston, Jamaica Earthquake on January 14, 1907 but as of press time I do not have all the exact dates on the snowfall and 884 was the total for the entire year! I'll update that info, though, for sure!!! EQ Guy
