Watch the video here:
Below is a screenshot of the past 2 weeks of earthquakes (north and south america).
Compare the above screenshot of the past 2 weeks of earthquakes to the North American Craton map below. Just connect the dots of the recent quakes… it forms the edge of the “craton” — which is being pushed as a WHOLE from the west (pacific ring of fire).
Notice below the edge of the brown/tan area, you see the edge of the “north american craton” also known as Laurentia.
The above picture compares the two.. connect the dots on the right.. you see the defined edge of the craton … which has clearly been “pushed” from the west.. watch these states along the edge of the craton for the next few weeks for additional movement.
If we look at this map below, showing the plate structure of the planet, compare the screenshots from earthquake 3D (last 2 weeks of earthquakes) and you will see the movement has been specifically around / caused by the Pacific plate being in a state of heavy unrest:
The above diagram shows the plate structure of the planet… now look at the earthquakes on the WEST pacific..
You will notice a few things.. first.. the amount of movement is MASSIVE — literally the whole series of plates around the western edge of the pacific have moved on a 5.0M basis over the past 2 weeks…
The second thing to notice…… observe how the movement is splitting north of the Australian plate.. north towards Japan, and west towards India… pressure to the west is spilling all the way across the middle east towards Europe.
All this being said, this means we need to watch the areas which are noticeably silent.. as well as areas that are experiencing earthquake swarms.
Next 2 weeks –
Watch west coast USA for 6.0M+ earthquake threat, Baja north to Central CA (mono lake).. northwest off the coast of Oregon (fresh lava fields).. then due north off the coast of Canada / British Columbia .
Watch the areas along the edge of the North American craton for 5.0M+ earthquake threat (states WA, OR, ID, WY, UT, CO, NM, TX, OK, AR, MO, TN, IL, IN, OH, SC, NC, VA, New england states north east to Maine / New Brunswick Canada…
Watch New Zealand north to Vanuatu for 6.0M to 7.0M earthquake threat.
Watch Japan north to Aleutian Island chain for 6.0 to 7.0M earthquake threat.
Watch Central America (central Mexico east to Puerto Rico) 6.0M in Mexico, 5.0M to 6.0M from Mexico east to PR.
Watch Indonesia west to Philippines for a 7.0M earthquake threat.
Watch South America along the coast of Chile.. east through the Andes mountains into argentina.. possibly as far north as Bolivia. 6.0M to 8.0M earthquake next two weeks.
Watch Europe.. english channel north to the sea of norway.. south east from UK to poland. 5.0M+ earthquake threat.
Also watch south europe.. 5.0M+ to 6.0M earthquake threat .. from Azores south to the Canaries .. east from azores through south spain into the mediterranean sea terminating at Turkey.
Basically, right now.. everywhere in the world is under some kind of large earthquake threat watch. I wish I could nail it down more than this.. but these are the areas I would watch for the nearterm future .. as the situation stands today — December 13, 2011 .
