Expected Earthquake, Volcanic or Storm Activity for the Next 1 to 5 Days

Are YOU Prepared?

The arrow pointing to southern Japan region indicates a SMALL chance of a seismic event there in the next 4 days.

Yesterday's long thermal boundary along Japan's east coast seems to have passed without effect; so we must assume it was a spurious thermal signal.

Although there have been about 670 quakes in California over the last 7 days, the risk of smaller quakes in California is dropping.

There are still small signs in the area north of San Francisco in the Juan de Fuca plate.

The south island of New Zealand is showing a weak seismic pressure build-up - perhaps a Richter 4.0.

Stan's analysis shows areas of possible earthquake or volcanic activity, or extreme storm conditions for the next 1 to 5 days. Pay particular attention to areas marked by white circles. The continuous yellow line denotes plate tectonic boundaries as well as the Ring of Fire. Go to the raw data map where it is easier to see the areas of concern. Go to Stan's earthquake map archives.

DEYO NOTES: For earthquake maps, see the USGS "shake maps" (click anywhere on the global map for a closer view). For quakes USGS may not list, go to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center's map and scroll to the bottom of the page for a global view. You can compare these maps for the next 5 days to Stan's NCODA maps, to see the hits of his seismic target zones (white circles).

Earthquake lists can viewed at EMCS and at USGS.

Ecuador's Geophysics Institute at the National Polytechnic School, does not list quakes on a daily basis as does the USGS and other entities, but when there are significant events, they post them in PDFs.

Disclaimer: Some of the forecast stress areas can be in error up to 30% due to cloud cover variations and false signals from buoys.
