5.9 Richters Earthquake Strikes Northern Peru!!! Big One Could Strike There at Any Moment, Too, Although Predictions There are For January 9, and February 9. 2017!!!

The felt report from this 5.9 Peru Earthquake is pretty much all the small towns in Peru there with the exception of one or two that came in from Ecuador just to the north along with at least one felt report from all the way South in Lima, Peru!!!

5.9 40km E of Barranca, Peru 2017-01-02 13:13

And although we were watching Peru for a Major Earthquake and actually still ARE watching Peru for a Major Earthquake, we might need to get used to shakers such as this 5.9 continuing due to the fact that Ecuador got many, many what we now know to have been "Foreshocks" and so now possible earthquakes such as Mondays 5.9 might just continue until a big one strikes! While I've listed dates such as January 9 for Peru. . . watch because this could strike at any moment!!!!!

Lots of discussion about those predictions for Peru in this weeks "Earthquake Minute" CLICK Arrow: See Cal-Nev Earthquake Minute now at YouTube@ And The Cal-Nev Transcript@

This is not the same Hawthorne, Nevada location as all the other shaking that took place there last week. This location is NORTH of Hawthorne and you might recall the other location where tons of shaking has taken place and is still actually getting some shaking, is to the South of Hawthorne and actually a lot closer to the line with California. Here's a 3.8 that struck there on January 2, 2017, notice it says North Northeast of Hawthorne, Nevada now:

3.8 - 23km NNE of Hawthorne, Nevada
2017-01-02 02:11:09 UTC 38.702°N 118.482°W 11.0 km depth

76.2 Miles ESE of Carson City, Nevada, Pop. 55,274
82 Miles ESE of South Lake Tahoe, CA, Pop. 21,403

Here's the Felt Report from the 3.8 there:

Hawthorne, NV 89415 United States of America.....4......22 km
Fernley, NV 89408 United States of America.......1.....115 km
Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546 United States of America.1.....121 km
Georgetown, CA 95634 United States of America....1.....196 km

Here's the biggest of the ones still shaking at the South of Hawthorne location:

2.6 29km WSW of Hawthorne, Nevada 2017-01-02 19:32
2.9 28km WSW of Hawthorne, Nevada 2017-01-02 18:01
3.6 30km WSW of Hawthorne, Nevada 2017-01-02 13:05
2.5 30km SW of Hawthorne, Nevada 2017-01-02 05:33

So, as these exotic desert locations continue to shake, it's occurring to me that the experts are leaning towards these all being what you might call "Garden Variety" Earthquakes up there around Hawthorne and out around the Brawley and Salton Sea Region, too! Of course you know me and all my regular readers already pretty much know I don't so much follow those accepted science folks and so maybe we should keep watching around California for something more to shake. . . and I suppose mostly remember my theory about December and January Earthquakes and as long as it's still now January and the anniversary of Eureka 2010 and Northridge are both coming, keep watching there!!!
