6.4 Richters Earthquake Strikes Taiwan!!! Alert For East Coast Continues As East Coast Gets 2 Small Earthquakes, Too!!!

As I've discussed in the past, there are a number of places where they more or less know a Major Earthquake is going to be striking them at some point in the future due to it having now been a LONG time since they've got one! I know Azores is one and Nepal, Kathmandu was one, but I also know and thought I'd mention it today that Taiwan is waiting for their next big Major Earthquake although they've gotten one or two in recent years, and here's one that just came in on Tuesday:

6.4 - 92km ENE of Keelung, Taiwan

2016-05-31 00:23am Central Time

Nearby Places
70.8 Miles ENE of Taipei, Taiwan
575 Miles ENE of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Not sure how I got ahold of a USGS Report that actually said 6.1 for that earthquake. . . when I now checked to find it's listed as a 6.4!!! A check of the felt reports also revealed only felt in Taiwan itself.

Now here's the drawing of about what that landfall on Saturday or Sunday of Tropical Storm Bonnie looked like and then you can even look to see exactly where the lines might indicate the first small earthquakes could already be striking:

Then the next thing I want to do is run this here link to a new "Earthquake Minute" now because I mention that after that landfall of Bonnie at Charleston we are expecting earthquakes on our East Coast so here's that Transcript@

And without going back as I sometimes wish to do and checking the times on both of these factoids, here's the earthquakes that have so far hit our East Coast, and these are a big deal, too, with the Massachusets one actually striking very near the historical epicenter of the 6.3 Richters Earthquake that struck there in 1755!!! So here's a couple that have already came in there:

2.2 50km ENE of Rockport, Massachusetts 2016-05-31 21:29:05
2.0 13km S of Littleton, New Hampshire 2016-05-31 10:54:19

Believe it our not these five earthquakes struck right in a straight line from Salton Sea to Gulf of California just like as if it was straight along the San Andreas Fault there, but instead this line comes out at the Gulf all the way south in Mexico!!! Could I suppose someday become that fault line, maybe:

1.0 10km SW of Niland, CA 2016-05-29 19:34:03
1.4 3km SW of Brawley, CA 2016-05-29 12:20:44
1.2 8km WSW of Holtville, CA 2016-05-29 12:19:53
3.6 23km S of Alberto Oviedo Mota, B.C., MX 2016-05-29 03:27:33
2.1 16km SSW of Puebla, B.C., MX 2016-05-29 01:18:17

AND before we wind up todays EQ Blog here's this weeks 'Banda Aceh "Earthquake Minute", CLICK Arrow: ALSO View Banda Aceh "Earthquake Minute" at You-Tube@ AND See Transcript@

This might be a good time to explain how it's not as important where exactly the straight line goes, which as you can see in the above pic it goes up into Tennessee, etc. as it is the fact that Charleston itself has been the epicenter of major earthquakes and that the population of the East Coast is such that they need to get an alert there could be something shaking there, soon! You might even notice that paragraph was originally started before those two earthquakes came in and so keep watching for more because there's definitely earthquakes coming and they could be big East Coast shakers, too!!!
