ANOTHER East coast earthquake has occurred.
This new seismic event, a 2.5 magnitude, struck in Eastern Virginia.
This Virginia earthquake activity comes on top of yesterdays movement in Connecticut, in New York, and North Carolina.
An East coast earthquake warning (forecast) was issued on February 19th for a full 7 day watch.
Quote the text below the earthquake forecast video from the 19th-20th –
“5-7 day watch (should see movement by day 7):
East coast United States is primed for another swarm of earthquakes, as revealed by the earthquakes spreading out from Oklahoma into Texas and Alabama (pressure spreading across the Southern portion of the craton).
This Southern pressure will place pressure to the East, which should cause more “mystery booms” to be reported on the Northeast, as well as a series of moderate to small earthquakes in succession of one another (possibly small swarm).. Watch Pennsylvania , New Jersey, and Massachusettes , possibly as far North as New Hampshire for some kind of earthquake activity.”
Beginning yesterday, on day 6 of the earthquake watch, the movement began.
Previously this week, had named the English Channel for earthquake activity, which was JUST hit with a rare 3.7M event! See the UK forecast hit here:
