Earthquake forecast direct hit (again).
Yet another large magnitude 6.8 earthquake (M6.4 revised down) has struck the EXACT same location as the previous event earlier this week.
The location is the Soloman Islands (West Pacific), East of Papua New Guinea.
This is the same epicenter location of the previous M6.9 earthquake, which occurred nearly three days ago (August 10, 2015).
Full post on the previous large earthquake here:
The earthquake forecast issued on August 8th called for at least one [quote] “mid to upper M6.0, or near M7.0” earthquake to strike the Soloman sea.
This has now occurred.
TWO upper M6.4/M6.9 events struck the area which was warned (Soloman Islands) 3 days ago.
