5/17/2013 — 4.4M earthquake — Ottawa, Canada — Craton movement continues

The northeast edge of the craton is moving.

If you have been following the movement at the fracking operations , and dormant volcanoes , then you were expecting this activity in the Northeast .

As I said above, we were expecting this movement along the northeast edge of the craton (plate).

This expectation is because we have been seeing earthquake activity building along the Southern / Western edge of the North American plate for the past several weeks.  

Fracking earthquakes in Colorado, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.. also, we saw additional larger movement in Idaho / Wyoming at the dormant supervolcano (Yellowstone / Hells Half Acre / Lava Hot Springs, ID ).  Strangely, even a 4.0M earthquake at a Phosphate mine along the UT/WY border.

Overall, we will continue to see this displacement along the edge of the craton , displacement will continue COMING FROM THE WEST as long as the Pacific plate is in a perturbed state.
