Earthquake Weather Report for June-July 2013
As I have brought up in an earlier hub, significant earthquakes that are either destructive/deadly or at least 6.5 Mw in magnitude are more likely around each January and less likely around each June. This last June was a pretty good example of that. An average month would see four significant earthquakes of 6.5 Mw magnitude or greater and this last June saw three. Those quakes also just barely made it into that category, with two of 6.5 Mw and one of 6.6 Mw. So, June was a bit below average and the results of my forecast were just average (when looking at 5.8 Mw magnitude or greater events as displayed on the graphic below).
My earlier suggestions that an approximately 7.0 Mw quake in Japan or one of over 8.0 Mw in the New Guinea area were likely around the corner based on recent activity in those areas may, rather than in a few months, more likely be a year or two down the road (but that would still be pretty soon when compared to the usual number of years between very large earthquakes). In Japan, it may be more like 3.5 years away based on a prediction by Britton LaRoche which you can find at this link: http://www.garagegames.com/community/blog/view/15946/54#comments
Although July is not a typical month for above average earthquake activity, astrology is playing a more significant role than usual in the equation this time. Usually, by my estimate, it influences the occurrence of about 40% of all significant earthquakes. This July its potential comes out to 51.1%. So, if July turns out to be average (or a bit more activity than the prior month), I would not be surprised and I am actually expecting there to be around 1-2 earthquakes in the first half of the month and 3-4 in the later half or 5 total (or 25% more than an average month).
Below are the earthquake windows that are indicated based on astrological factors (based on the graphic above). The first three are pretty narrow and the possible locations are based on the midpoint of their ranges. The last window is thirteen days long and the potential locations are broken up into four key dates and times. The locations in bold represent a much greater potential than usual for a significant earthquake occurring there. All fractions of a date are based on Greenwich Mean Time (thus July 14.25 equals 6am, GMT on July the 14th).
July 7.5-8.5 = Turkey, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Mexico, Italy, Iran, Cyprus, Indonesia, AK, CA.
July 10.3-10.8 = Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Russia, CA.
July 14.25-15.5 = Japan, China, Taiwan, Russia, Peru, Turkey, Italy, Iran, AK.
July 18.9-August 1.0 = Split into the following groups:
July 20.25 = Turkey, Greece, Indonesia, CA, HI.
July 23.75 = Japan, Iran, Turkey, Ecuador, Mexico, CA, AK, HI.
July 25.0 = Peru, Japan, Iran, Russia, Chile, CA, AK.
July 27.0 = Peru, Chile, Turkey, Iran, Italy, Greece, AK, HI.
July 31.25 = Peru, China, Turkey, Mexico, Italy, Greece, Afghanistan, HI, AK, CA.
