2/2/2012 — Global Earthquake Overview — USA, Europe, Asia, South Pacific, S. America

watch the full video update here:  all links to monitor are below:


Screenshot below is from earthquake 3D — last 14 days of earthquakes as reported on the USGS/ANSS feed — (US 0.0M + .. globally 4.0M+):

Here is a shot of the past two weeks of 6.0 magnitude and greater from the USGS feed:


The above video is a quick 15 minute overview of the current earthquake plots — a short review of Yellowstone Charts and the PNW (pacific northwest) charts — also a look at Europe, Central America, S. America, Asia, and the Pacific Ring of fire.

The North American craton — called Laurentia — is showing further sings of movement — be aware if you live in the USA — long overdue for a 6.0M+ earthquake on the west coast between Baja Mexico and the fresh lavic fields in the ocean off shore of Oregon / British Columbia / Washington State… as well as ANYWHERE along the edge of the craton…This means WA, ID, MT, WY, UT, CO, NM, TX, OK, AR, MO, IL, KY, TN, MS, AL, VA, OH, and New england northeast towards Quebec / Ontario Canada.

Europe — same scenario — anywhere along the edge of the north european plate — north of the Alps.. on a diagonal line spanning northwest from the Canaries to Poland. North Europe.. the english channel north past Iceland through the sea of Norway.

Central and south america — Watch the edge of the pacific plate — hot spots are south Mexico — and central chile/peru.

Watch New Zealand, Vanuatu, Indonesia, Philippines, India to Afghanistan in particular.

After reading the above.. it seems most places on the planet are in a heavy state of movement — all areas have their specific hot spots –always have a plan and be prepared — just in case.
