2/04/2015 — Earthquake Forecast hit — Salton Sea volcanic buttes show movement within 24 hours

New movement now begins at Salton Sea volcanic buttes within 24 hours of issuing the watch for the area.

Movement begins in the area talked about in yesterdays earthquake forecast video, also in the written forecast on my website.


Yesterday, February 3rd into 4th 2015 , I issued this full Earthquake forecast post saying :

http://dutchsinse.com/2032015-dormant-volcano-in-california-shows-movement-crater-mountain-3-1m-event/

“Now that the dormant volcanoes are showing activity, and since we’ve already seen excessive movement along the edge of the craton at the fracking operations of Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas — we can expect 3 things in the United States over the next 3-7 days….

1. Movement to occur on the East coast between the Carolinas, and New York state. Most likely a moderate swarm will occur, as opposed to one single larger release event, but if no swarm occurs, then one larger earthquake will strike between New York and Southeast Quebec (New Brunswick).

2. Movement to become more noteworthy in Southern California. South of Mono Lake to Salton Sea be on watch for moderate movement (hopefully everything will be less than 6.0M!)

3. Expect a larger event from the Coast of Oregon to Vancouver Island BC.”

and further saying:

“Finally, let’s not forget the movement showing at the Salton Sea volcanic buttes (yet again).  When we see the dormant volcanoes show movement up the West coast , and at Yellowstone, we always see additional movement at this ACTIVE volcano in Southern California.

Believe it or not, Salton Sea volcano could erupt if enough earthquake pressure is placed upon the magma chamber.  This is not my assessment, but the professionals take on the situation (see video below)


Today, (approximately 6am CST February 4 2015)  a new moderate earthquake (possible new swarm beginning) at Salton Sea butte volcano in Southern California, just as expected.

We can check #2 on the earthquake forecast list, but do NOT remove it from the list until the forecast time of 7 days is over. We will certainly see more noteworthy movement now that Salton Sea showed up so early.

I had expected a couple of days, not 24 hours. We need to watch Los Angeles to Mono Lake still, as well as Salton Sea to the far Southern edge of the Gulf of California for more movement.

Here are the statistics on the event near Salton Sea:

2/03/2015 — Dormant volcano in California shows movement — Large seismic event underway

A dormant volcano in Central-East California is showing movement.

Crater Mountain, part of a greater volcanic complex in central California, just had a 3.1 magnitude earthquake.

crater mountain dormant volcano earthquake feb 3 2015

 

This movement at dormant volcanoes was expected to occur this week.

Expected due to fact that the Western portion of the craton has been displaced from Canada to Salton Sea, and from California to the Oklahoma / Colorado/ Kansas / Texas fracking operations.

Notice the entire Western portion of the craton, and the Southern portion of the craton has movement showing across over 2,000+ miles. Several of the locations are dormant volcanoes, or deep drilling operations.

The Earthquake showing at the border of Arizona and New Mexico is also associated with a dormant volcano.  As seen in this graphic attached below, multiple events have occurred at this location.  Some even very close to the surface.

This dormant “unnamed” volcano has a monitoring station on top of it, proving someone somewhere is watching it for some reason or another.

Odd that this particular dormant cone is showing movement when all other peaks around do NOT have any monitoring stations atop their peaks.

On top of the movement in California, there has been additional movement at the NW Nevada dormant volcanic buttes.

The area in NW Nevada has been experiencing a large ongoing swarm of earthquakes, some of which were at 0km depth (surface movement).  This location has now reached upwards of multiple HUNDRED separate earthquakes just in the past few months.

Clearly volcanic in nature , an ancient butte and fissure.

In addition to all other volcanic areas showing movement, we’ve also seen a return of activity to the Western portion of the Yellowstone magma chamber.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/mb15885652#general_summary

The Yellowstone supervolcano magma chamber has been verified to reach into central Idaho.  Central Idaho being the location of the current (and ongoing) earthquake swarm.

This graphic is from the AGU (american geophysical union), showing the new measurements of the underground magma chamber at Yellowstone:

Finally, let’s not forget the movement showing at the Salton Sea volcanic buttes (yet again).  When we see the dormant volcanoes show movement up the West coast , and at Yellowstone, we always see additional movement at this ACTIVE volcano in Southern California.

Graphic below shows past movement and detailed information on the location:

Main Stream Media Confirms Possible Salton Sea… by dutchsinse

 


Now that the dormant volcanoes are showing activity, and since we’ve already seen excessive movement along the edge of the craton at the fracking operations of Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas — we can expect 3 things in the United States over the next 3-7 days….

1. Movement to occur on the East coast between the Carolinas, and New York state.   Most likely a moderate swarm will occur, as opposed to one single larger release event, but if no swarm occurs, then one larger earthquake will strike between New York and Southeast Quebec (New Brunswick).

2. Movement to become more noteworthy in Southern California.  South of Mono Lake to Salton Sea be on watch for moderate movement (hopefully everything will be less than 6.0M!)

3.  Expect a larger event from the Coast of Oregon to Vancouver Island BC.

[ the unnamed #4 we need to watch the fracking operations for multiple larger events , which at this point doesn’t even need to be said, since we just had FIVE greater than 4.0M events in the past 7 days! ]

see my video on those larger fracking earthquakes here:


Whatever you do, do NOT ask the Texas Railroad Commission about fracking, unless you like being lied to..


International forecast will be out tomorrow.

2/02/2015 — Colorado Earthquake hits location that was warned — 24 hours after warning issued

Another earthquake forecast area was hit as an Earthquake strikes the Southern Colorado fracking operation.

As we were expecting, a 3.1 magnitude earthquake struck due West of the large swarm of 4.0M+ events in Oklahoma.    This was the area which I covered in yesterday’s earthquake forecast.

A zoom in on the coordinates for this Colorado event, epicenter location provided by the USGS,  clearly shows a large fracking operation with the nearest well just 2,000 feet away.

This screenshot shows the nearest well with frack pond / oil – gas pump:

Yesterday , February 1 2015, I issued a new earthquake watch for the midwest due to the swarm of multiple 4.0M+ earthquakes which occurred in Oklahoma over the past 7 days (up to 2/1/2015).

The swarm of 4.0M earthquakes in Oklahoma (just East) is the cause of this lateral movement along the edge of the craton.  Seen in this graphic below, the FIVE different 4.0M+ earthquakes shows how much stress the plate is under.

past 7 days of 4.0m and greater earthquakes feb 1 2015
4.3M – 1/26…. 4.0M – 1/27…. 4.2M – 1/27 …. 4.0M – 1/30…. 4.0M – 2/1

 

I issued this video below stating specifically to watch the area to the West of Oklahoma, naming out Southern Colorado (heard at about 2min 35sec):

This should be no shock to my viewers, as the new method for forecasting earthquakes is something that (at this point) should be making international news due to how accurate it has become.

Earthquakes in the Stable Continental Region

Natural Occurring Earthquake Activity

“Most of North America east of the Rocky Mountains has infrequent earthquakes. Here and there earthquakes are more numerous, for example in the New Madrid seismic zone centered on southeastern Missouri, in the Charlevoix-Kamouraska seismic zone of eastern Quebec, in New England, in the New York – Philadelphia – Wilmington urban corridor, and elsewhere. However, most of the enormous region from the Rockies to the Atlantic can go years without an earthquake large enough to be felt, and several U.S. states have never reported a damaging earthquake.

Earthquakes east of the Rocky Mountains, although less frequent than in the West, are typically felt over a much broader region than earthquakes of similar magnitude in the west. East of the Rockies, an earthquake can be felt over an area more than ten times larger than a similar magnitude earthquake on the west coast. It would not be unusual for a magnitude 4.0 earthquake in eastern or central North America to be felt by a significant percentage of the population in many communities more than 100 km (60 mi) from its source. A magnitude 5.5 earthquake in eastern or central North America might be felt by much of the population out to more than 500 km (300 mi) from its source. Earthquakes east of the Rockies that are centered in populated areas and large enough to cause damage are, similarly, likely to cause damage out to greater distances than earthquakes of the same magnitude centered in western North America.

Most earthquakes in North America east of the Rockies occur as faulting within bedrock, usually miles deep. Few earthquakes east of the Rockies, however, have been definitely linked to mapped geologic faults, in contrast to the situation at plate boundaries such as California’s San Andreas fault system, where scientists can commonly use geologic evidence to identify a fault that has produced a large earthquake and that is likely to produce large future earthquakes. Scientists who study eastern and central North America earthquakes often work from the hypothesis that modern earthquakes occur as the result of slip on preexisting faults that were formed in earlier geologic eras and that have been reactivated under the current stress conditions. The bedrock of Eastern North America is, however, laced with faults that were active in earlier geologic eras, and few of these faults are known to have been active in the current geologic era. In most areas east of the Rockies, the likelihood of future damaging earthquakes is currently estimated from the frequencies and sizes of instrumentally recorded earthquakes or earthquakes documented in historical records.

Induced Seismicity

As is the case elsewhere in the world, there is evidence that some central and eastern North America earthquakes have been triggered or caused by human activities that have altered the stress conditions in earth’s crust sufficiently to induce faulting. Activities that have induced felt earthquakes in some geologic environments have included impoundment of water behind dams, injection of fluid into the earth’s crust, extraction of fluid or gas, and removal of rock in mining or quarrying operations. In much of eastern and central North America, the number of earthquakes suspected of having been induced is much smaller than the number of natural earthquakes, but in some regions, such as the south-central states of the U.S., a significant majority of recent earthquakes are thought by many seismologists to have been human-induced. Even within areas with many human-induced earthquakes, however, the activity that seems to induce seismicity at one location may be taking place at many other locations without inducing felt earthquakes. In addition, regions with frequent induced earthquakes may also be subject to damaging earthquakes that would have occurred independently of human activity. Making a strong scientific case for a causative link between a particular human activity and a particular sequence of earthquakes typically involves special studies devoted specifically to the question. Such investigations usually address the process by which the suspected triggering activity might have significantly altered stresses in the bedrock at the earthquake source, and they commonly address the ways in which the characteristics of the suspected human-triggered earthquakes differ from the characteristics of natural earthquakes in the region.”


Previous Earthquake forecast now fully complete, with all areas named being hit within approximately 1 week of issuing the forecast.

The last area to be hit was DIRECTLY in Algeria.

4.7m earthquake feb 2 2015
Feb 1, 2015 – 4.7M earthquake strikes Algeria. Algeria was named in the January 23 2015 earthquake forecast – naming “Algeria to Gibralter” as the area to watch for movement. Algeria was hit dead center.

 

Switzerland, Poland, UK, and Algeria… all hit in the timeframe called for… hit within a week of being forecast.

The European earthquake forecast from a week ago called for movement from Algeria to Gibralter.

On 1/23 I issued the European watch video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmMrfDvmTZc

Quote the forecast:

“New watch for Europe as of 930am GMT January 23 2015 .

Watch the region for more movement now that Italy is showing heavy swarm activity.

We need to watch further North in Germany and Switzerland. Poland, maybe even Holland and the UK will see some action in the near term (next 5-7 days or less).

Not huge action, but noteworthy for the area… if it dies out over the next couple days, we’ll be lucky. Until then .. now watch central North Europe, and almost forgot to mention to watch the directly from Algeria to Gibralter! Solid as a rock? Not when the rock below the rock is moving.

After we see movement in Italy, we always see movement in the adjacent areas North, and West in the Mediterranean.”


So far.. since issuing the forecast for Poland, Switzerland, England, and Algeria, two very rare earthquakes … 3.9M and 2.9M hit England.
