5/24/2015 — East coast earthquake strikes New Hampshire — Forecast to occur 3 DAYS BEFORE

The East coast has now experienced the swarm of earthquakes we were expecting, and which was forecast to occur this week.

Over the past 3 days, since the Earthquake forecast for the East coast was issued, we have seen events strike Maine in the far Northeast, South Quebec, New Brunswick, and now movement strikes New Hampshire.

Today (May 24, 2015) a 2.3 magnitude earthquake struck central New Hampshire, directly upon the craton edge, just as we were expecting to see.

Here is the most recent earthquake forecast, specifically calling for East coast movement.

I discuss this weeks earthquake threat in New England, and the Northeast at about 21min into this video:

 

If you listened to the East coast earthquake forecast in this above video, then you now can see that the movement which was forecast to occur, happened within 3 days of the warning being issued.

Indeed, after a period of silence on the Eastern portion of the plate, small swarms of earthquakes developed up the East coast, reaching from South Carolina to Maine / Quebec .

These smaller East coast earthquakes directly followed larger movement to the South + Southwest along the edge of the craton in Kansas, and Nevada.   Over the past 2-3 days, Kansas experienced a rare 4.7M earthquake, and Nevada was hit by a 5.4M near Las Vegas.
