5/02/2015 — North American Craton displacement underway — Michigan + Quebec Earthquakes

Southern Quebec Canada is reporting a 2.7 magnitude earthquake which was just added to the USGS feeds.

In addition, Michigan has now experienced the largest earthquake in State history (since at least 1946). Measuring 4.2 magnitude, this rare event was felt across multiple states, including Indiana, Ohio, and North into Canada.


The additional listed Quebec 2.7 magnitude earthquake is worthy to note in light of its location to the other events which transpired over the past 24 hours.

This graphic below shows the past 24 hours of 2.5M+ earthquakes in the United States.  No doubt the two equidistantly spaced earthquakes FLANKING each side of the Michigan 4.2M event are related to the overall craton edge movement.

We were expecting the area of Southern Quebec to show movement.  It would appear this earthquake activity in Quebec hit as part of this 4.2M Michigan event

Regardless of which order of events occurred, BOTH earthquakes reside upon the general “edge” of the North American Craton.

In this graphic below, the past 7 days of Earthquake activity revels, undeniably, that the whole of the North American plate was displaced this past week (up to May 2, 2015 5pm CDT).

The forecast for Quebec was two fold, one general warning in the most recentpublic earthquake forecast update:


The second more specific warning was issued via Text to my readers, and to the general public as well:


Quote the midwest / New Madrid / Wabash Valley forecast from 13 hours BEFORE the 4.0M in Michigan struck:

california cluster craton earthquakes may 1 2015

May 1, 2015: “2.9M earthquake along the New Madrid seismic zone.

As expected pressure is now beginning to transfer Eastward along the edge of the craton due to the pressure this past week on the South and Western portions of the plate.

Notice the 2.9M earthquakes flanking both sides of the Oklahoma fracking operations.

Colorado fracking 2.9M… swarm of fracking earthquakes in Oklahoma.. and then a “natural” 2.9M translates eastward at the nearest “weak point / release point” for the pressure.

The “natural” pressure transfer earthquakes should begin to show along the New Madrid to East coast over the next several days.”


Now, May 2 2015, a full day after warning the area for 4.0M+ movement — the area between the New Madrid and South Quebec is hit with a 4.0M event in Michigan, and a 2.7M strikes Southern Quebec.
