Just got back in to my page… And now a very large M8.3 earthquake strikes South of the Chile Peru Border at Central Chile’s coastline.
In addition to this large movement in South America… we also saw that a M4.0 struck South California, and M6.2 struck Soloman Sea this morning.
My facebook was turned off ALL DAY… on the biggest earthquake day in weeks…. go figure.
I was expecting major activity to strike Chile this week (as I said in the forecast video).
A M8.3 earthquake has struck off the Coast of Chile , South of the Peru border near Valparaiso. A tsunami warning has been issued for the Pacific ocean, including Hawaii.
The Tsunami may only be a small wave, keep up to date on the tsunami warnings here:
The most recent global earthquake forecast was calling for a large volcanic eruption strike South Chile this week.. instead.. a large magnitude 8.3 earthquake has now struck South Chile.
See the forecast here:
I was expecting an eruption with a swarm of M5.0’s.. instead a M8.3 struck..
Watch for eruption activity in the area just in case.
Talking about Chile twice in this most recent forecast video.. once at the beginning .. once at the end .. forecast video is linked below for you to review.
I’d also like to point out that Soloman sea was struck as expected with a M6.2, and Taiwan was struck by TWO mid M5.0 earthquakes.
Soloman Sea was forecast to see a mid-M6.0 and Taiwan was forecast for upper M5.0 to lower M6.0. Both hit dead on.
I’m not shocked to see an M8.3 on the East Pacific quite frankly…. since the other two M6.0 this morning in the Philippines + Soloman Sea , and the M4.5 near Los Angeles California were pointing to major unrest brewing on the Pacific plate.
