5/30/2015 — Shallow 6.4M earthquake follows Deep Japan 8.5M (7.8 magnitude) — North of previous event

A shallow 6.4 magnitude earthquake has struck off the Eastern coast of Japan, approximately 250 miles Northeast of the previous 8.5M (7.8 magnitude revised) earthquake which occurred earlier today .

We were expecting to see SHALLOW follow up movement strike in an adjacent area from the large deep earthquake this morning due to the fact that the deep earthquakes are proved to cause shallow earthquakes elsewhere nearby.

Just as expected, the area nearby moved at a shallow depth within hours of the deep earthquake.  I expect additional shallow larger movement to occur over this coming week, no doubt this 6.4M is just the first compensation movement we’re seeing.

See the video calling for shallow movement to follow up this deep Asthenosphere earthquake  here:


The deep 7.8M (8.5M) earthquake was FORECAST to occur a full day before it actually happened.
