5/29/2015 — New Madrid Seismic Zone Illinois Earthquake — 3.4 magnitude hits FORECAST AREA DIRECTLY

Get the word out, earthquake forecast direct hit near my home town of Saint Louis Missouri.

This morning an earthquake forecast was issued for the New Madrid Seismic Zone , calling for 3.0M to 4.0M activity to strike South Illinois towards the Indiana border over the next 7 days.

Move forwards about 12 hours, and we now see a very rare 3.4M earthquake has struck South Illinois towards the Indiana border in the EXACT area warned, for the exact magnitude warned.

USGS says NO ONE can forecast an earthquake…

SMH @ that foolish statement.

This is proof earthquakes can indeed be forecast to issue warnings for small regions over a specific time.

See the earthquake forecast calling for activity for the New Madrid Seismic Zone / Illinois here: (speaking on Illinois at the 16min 45sec mark)

Keep in mind we haven’t called for New Madrid movement in over a year, and we haven’t seen any activity in Illinois like this in even longer.

This movement was expected to occur across Missouri , Illinois, and Indiana due to the excessive craton pressure we’ve been seeing build over the past week.
