11/24/2015 — Peru South America struck by TWO large M7.7 earthquakes

Updated 630pm CST November 24, 2015:

Two large M7.7 / M7.6 earthquakes struck back to back in Peru South America at a very deep level.  Originally these events were recorded as M6.9, M7.1 in strength, then upgraded by the USGS.

Obviously, two M7.7’s is a large amount of movement to occur in the region.  No doubt people felt this event across the countries nearby.

Global seismic unrest has been progressing across the Pacific plate, and adjacent plates spanning West from the Pacific towards Europe, as well as Eastward towards the Americas.

After a deep M6.0 struck the West Pacific a few hours ago (Nov. 24) , now we see another deep earthquake has struck the EAST Pacific — measuring M7.5 in size.

European agencies showing TWO events.. M7.1 + M7.0 … the USGS is showing two M7.7 earthquakes (started out as a M6.9 then upgraded to M7.5 then elevated to 2 different M7.7 events).

A large Pacific plate earthquake warning was issued yesterday in light of the multiple deep earthquakes which struck across the whole plate over a few hours time.

Here is the warning which was issued, telling people to watch out for a coming large earthquake in the  next few days.  Peru / Chile border region was warned a full 24 hours prior to this large earthquake striking.


Here is the text of that warning, unedited – quote:

Yesterday at 10:36am ·

Past 24 hours of international earthquake activity shows 3 different deep earthquake locations.

past 24 hours deep earthquake nov 23 2015

Seen in this graphic raised high off the planet — the three locations are Chile, Fiji, and Japan. Obviously the three locations span the whole Pacific plate, from East Pacific Chile, to Far NW Pacific in Japan.

Keep watch for a large Pacific plate earthquake over the next few days, as the deep earthquakes displace the area below the plate… the shallow areas above will be in flux.

The shallower earthquake(s) will be at least 1-2 magnitudes larger than the deep movement.

Basically the whole plate is upwelling pressure from below, meaning the whole plate should show larger compensation movement in the near term. The currently “prone” + silent areas are the areas to watch for the large earthquake to strike.

This means the three areas listed, as well as the adjacent areas , additionally the silent areas should all show movement soon. The whole plate should move at a shallow level after this deep movement.

West coast USA is not immune.”

See the earthquake forecast issued on November 17, 2015 — calling for new large Pacific plate movement to strike the region:
