The Pacific North West is long over due for a large earth quake. Over the past year the world has seen 4 very large and devastating earthquakes around the Ring of Fire.
- Chile: Saturday Feb 27, 2010 – 8.8
- Chile: Thursday March 11, 2010 – 7.2
- New Zealand: Tuesday Feb 22, 2011 – 6.3
- Japan: Friday March 11, 2011 – 9.0
If you plot out where each of these earthquakes are along the ring of fire, you will see that they fall in three of the 4 corners of the pacific. The missing Corner – North America.
These earthquakes also flow clockwise around the ring of fire starting in Chili, then New Zealand, then Japan, and next… well, it could be the Pacific North West…
So is California, or anyone along the West Coast of North America due for an earthquake? Well, I don’t really know. Earthquakes are very unpredictable, BUT if they did follow a pattern, it would seem that we are next, and fairly soon.
So, while I NO relevant education to back up my prediction, I am going to go out on a limb and make a prediction. I hope I am wrong, I probably am wrong, but here it is:
I predict a quake greater than 8.5 to hit somewhere between California and the west coast of Vancouver Island, most likely on the Juan de Fuca Subduction zone, in February of 2012.
Now we wait and see…
