After a rapid buildup of activity across the Pacific over the past week, we are now seeing a translation of movement across the Pacific plate to North and South America.
A magnitude 4.0 earthquake has struck another Central Oklahoma fracking operation.
The past several days has proved to be very active across the Western Pacific, as well as off the Northwest coast of the United States — producing multiple large earthquakes in Asia, and a 4.0M+ earthquakes near Vancouver Island British Columbia.
At the same time we saw this earthquake activity occurring, a very odd plume event took place over the past 2 days along the West coast of the United States (California).
These plume events were followed by an unexpected large volcanic eruption in South America (Southern Chile) at Calbuco volcano, which hasn’t erupted in 40 years.
