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:
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
