A sizable 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck on the border of Chile, and Peru.
This earthquake was forecast to occur on March 12, 2015.
11 days ago this warning was issued for the border of Peru + Chile:
Quote the text from this video:
“Mexico City south to Guatemala.. be on watch for a greater than 6.0 magnitude event.
North Chile to South Peru, along the coast, keep watch for a possible 6.0 – 7.0M over the next 7 days or less.”
Over the past few days, a 6.0M struck South of Mexico City, North of Guatemala (as expected , in the time expected – downgraded to 5.4M from original 6.0M).
It took 3 additional days beyond the 7 day watch issued for the 6.4M to now strike at the Peru/Chile border.
This area is also showing volcanic unrest. Villarica volcano in Chile had a major eruption a few weeks ago, and now is showing signs of more unrest.
