Renewed craton pressure , coming from the West / Northwest United States, as well as pressure coming from Central America.. has caused new movement across the whole of the North American Craton.

The new pressure is causing earthquakes to show at dormant volcanoes along the West coast (Blowout Mountain Nevada), and along the Gorda Escarpment (Northwest of San Francisco).

In addition to the volcanic movement showing on the West coast, new activity has also developed at the fracking operations in Texas, as well as movement along the East Coast in New Jersey.

Overall, this renewed pressure was forecast to cause new activity across the United States.  The forecast was issued on August 8th, now 6 days later, the movement has struck the areas which were warned.

Oklahoma was warned for new M4.0 activity to occur in the forecast.  See the earthquake forecast video here:
