BIG 6.5 Richters Earthquake Struck Botswana!!! Although No "Official Prediction" an Active "EQ Alert" HAD Been Posted Here!!! Keep Watching There, And Others For More Big Shaking!!!

I will need to modify and update the list of nearby places for a better idea of the exact location of this epicenter of the 6.5 Botswana Earthquake from Monday. For now here's what the USGS Report looks like:

6.5 - 132km W of Moijabana, Botswana
2017-04-03 17:40:18 UTC

Nearby Places:
Moijabana, Botswana 132.9 km (82.6 mi) W
Letlhakane, Botswana 145.1 km (90.1 mi) SSW
Serowe, Botswana 163.6 km (101.7 mi) W
Mahalapye, Botswana 178.1 km (110.6 mi) WNW
Molepolole, Botswana 196.9 km (122.4 mi) N

As I was putting together all the information from Mondays 6.5 Richters Botswana Earthquake, I noticed I was also coming up with several stories about the more recent shaker there at around a 5 as shown and how it's practically now more of a major concern for that region! First take a look at the now 3 from there including that much earlier Monday South Africa Earthquake which in itself seemed unusual at the time:

5.0 141km SSW of Letlhakane, Botswana 2017-04-05 00:55
6.5 132km W of Moijabana, Botswana 2017-04-03 17:40
5.2 8km S of Stilfontein, South Africa 2017-04-03 03:08

Here's a good story all about what's shaking there around Botswana:

This was found in a search for other earthquakes in that region, based on the fact that one of those stories such as the above mentioned this one: "Tanzania--A magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck Kigoma Region, Tanzania on January 31 at a depth of 20.0 km." As of press time did not find much more additional information on the 1952 Earthquake, but I might continue to look into that.

Let's take a look at this weeks "Earthquake Minute" Now: See BIG "Earthquake Minute" 7.9 East Coast Now at YouTube@ Transcript@

Because I would like to hurry this edition along due to being busy on other projects, there was also a huge felt report from the 6.5 Botswana Earthquake with close to 1000 (923), the most notable from Cape Regions all of which I assume means the Southern most point of Africa. And many from other countries, too, maybe tomorrow I'll have more on all that. And of course the fact that we've been watching Mozambique, Botswana, and Zimbabwe for a Major Earthqukae such as we discussed in this script from a recent Earthquake Minute@

THAT was just one of MANY mentions although an area where I did not yet post an "Official Prediction" for. . . partly due to it being yet another region where chances of it happening were admitedly on the long side! Must now keep watching that region, it COULD get a bigger shaker, yet! Possibly still Ecuador-Columbia, too. And of course East Coast still has an alert and I'll update all of this tomorrow. Just got back to Wisconsin from Chicago where I worked two "GraveYard Shifts" with all my wonderfull Chicago Film Production Friends!!!!! Great Movie coming, though, details later in the year or early next year!!! I can't wait, either!!!! EQ Guy
