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:

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
