This most recent 6.5M (now downgraded to a 6.2M) earthquake in the north Arctic — east of Greenland — Mid-Atlantic ridge — Norwegian sea….. shows the movement picking up in pace.
Italy, Bulgaria, and south of Australia — all areas we don’t see too much earthquake activity….. plus add in the swarming of earthquakes NORTH of coast of Honsu (Hokkaido)… and add in the earthquake activity in South/Central America —- we are on a heightened earthquake alert yet once again.
This seems to happen in cycles every month or so recently…. so be prepared for additional 6.0M to 8.0M earthquakes in the near future (two weeks or less around the ring of fire areas prone already —- Japan, Baja, Oaxaca Mexico, off the coast of Oregeon… along the edge of the north American craton —- too many areas to name almost.
Point being, we should all have a plan to be prepared in the eventuality of an earthquake occurring… even east coast USA and midwest USA — as well as central south Europe still.
