3/27/2014 — Earthquake Swarm strikes Salton Sea Volcano — Volcanic Earthquakes FORECAST 24 hours prior

On March 26, 2014 .. an unnamed volcano in South-Central California showed moderate earthquake activity, as well as the caldera inside Yellowstone national park.

This led me to make a post (yesterday March 26, 2014), showing the unnamed volcano in South California, and stating we should watch the Salton Sea volcano for possible movement.

screenshot of yesterday’s (march 26) Southern California volcanic earthquake:

quote from yesterday (March 26, 2014):

The increase in activity along the edge of the craton will continue into the near term future due to the overall Pacific displacement occurring internationally.

Until things cool off internationally in the West Pacific, we can expect sizable displacement to occur along our plate in North America.  This means, Yellowstone, Colorado, Oklahoma, and other areas along the edge of the edge of the craton need to be aware of the possibility of movement in the near term.

Also.. the odd man out, Southern California , near Baja, sits primed, and now showing slight volcanic chamber activity.  Expect Salton Sea and Mono Lake to be showing some movement soon.”

Move forward 24 hours, to the late PM on March 27 2014.  An earthquake swarm strikes the Salton Sea Volcano (just as expected).

Again, for the record, an earthquake swarm occurring directly at the forecast area.

Within 24 hours of the watch being issued.

Offical USGS information on each event:

3.4M :http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/ci15481105#summary

1.7M : http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/ci15481129#summary


There is the possibility that earthquakes at this location could be a precursor to something larger.
