STATEMENT OF OPINION REGARDING POSSIBLE MAJOR EARTHQUAKE STRIKING THE EAST COAST OF THE U.S. BEFORE NOVEMBER 16, 2012
I thought I would temporarily discontinue the use of the word prediction in these writings since they tend to draw too much attention to my earthquake writings and I do not actually ever “Predict” earthquakes per se in the first place. Today I want to simply issue a full length Opinion. It is my opinion that there is a lot of major earthquake energy that has just been generated by the landfall of Hurricane Sandy at Jamaica and Cuba.
The wind speeds reported at these landfalls are 80 to 90 mph at Jamaica bearing due North, and as high as 175 mph at landfall at Eastern Cuba with a heading slightly to the East of due North. Combined these two will both generate significant new earthquake energy although the two were separated by at least a few hours and it is possible that the due north nature of the Jamaica landfall will send earthquake energy more to the due North than the landfall at Cuba which appears to have turned just slightly to the East and could tend to more affect the Long Island and Greater Boston Regions. Therefore, the landfall of Hurricane Sandy at Jamaica with winds reported in the 80-90 mph range might generate just enough energy to be heading up towards Charleston, Richmond, Chesapeake Bay, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Ottawa. In the event that these end up being two separate entities, the Richmond, Baltimore, Ottawa shaker will be much smaller and shouldn’t go much beyond 5.5 Richters and I would say 6 would be a lot. Keep in mind that the additional earthquake energy from the landfall at Cuba will be right behind it on a track that will run just to the East of it.
The new potential earthquake energy from the landfall of Hurricane Sandy at Cuba with winds reported to be as high as 175 mph will also head Northerly, but the big windstorm had made a slight turn to the East a degree or two during that landfall and as a result this much larger energy should cross just offshore Charleston, cross onto North America at Long Island, New York, and proceed Northerly on a straight line towards Greater Boston. The line ultimately continues to Chongqing, China, Irkutsk, and Jakarta, Indonesia much further down the road. This will be a slightly larger shaker we are talking about here and since the two main regions concerned are Long Island, and Boston, it does not seem too realistic that the folks in those regions have much to worry about, but then that’s sort of what the Italian Scientists said, too, more about that later.
Finally there is an existing Official Prediction for Alaska, New Madrid, and Jamaica that should continue on virtually unaffected by all of this new earthquake energy until November 12, 2012. This new “Unofficial Opinion” will be effective for the Eastern U.S. until November 16, 2012 but will continue on through December 6, 2012 for Irkutsk, China, and Indonesia.
There are one or two Major Earthquakes heading for The United States and while the possibility does exist that we will only get a few shakes from the earthquake energy passing through on the way to other places such as Surinam, French Guiana, Irkutsk, and China. . . it is my Unofficial Opinion that we need to open up the channels of communication with the general public at every point where signs of an earthquake are occurring. The failure to do so might have something to do with the fact that all of those previously “Great” Seismology guys are now going to prison for very long stretches, losing there titles forever, and being ordered to compensate the victims of that earthquake they failed to admit was being accurately predicted. There is a lot of truth to the methods Giuliani used in his now fateful attempt to save lives through his work with earthquakes. While it is unfortunate that true earthquake prediction has to move forward at the expense of ALL of those involved, move forward it should.
As a result of that verdict in the L’Aquila Seismologists earthquake trial, I am today open for ideas as to what my earthquake alert group can do to improve such communications between earthquake people and the general public. I feel it is my job to propagate this earthquake information, but also am thinking there are still a lot of people that have never heard of my work with earthquakes and possibly neither the work of Giampaolo Giuliani the now Great Italian Scientist who fairly accurately predicted the 2009 L’Aquila Earthquake and could have saved peoples lives if not for all of the naysayers.
There is a lot of earthquake energy here, and all of this earthquake energy WILL STRIKE somewhere. The question is how and when are we going to go about letting the public in on all the latest earthquake prediction type information?
Thank-You for accepting this Statement of Opinion.
Respectfully, Name Edited, The EQ Alert Guy
EXHIBIT A--My October 2012 Curriculum Vitae:
I attended school in my hometown in Wisconsin, and went on to receive my General Education Diploma from Blackhawk Tech in October 1981, later attending TV Actors Studio in Chicago where I received a diploma from their Commercials One and Two course in early 1989. Throughout the 1990’s I worked as a Background Actor in Chicago Film Production working my way up to Feature Roles and Bit Parts and joining the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists or AFTRA, as well as going on to begin an Apprenticeship with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters in 1996 and heading to Los Angeles in 1999 when work ran out in Wisconsin. There I moved my AFTRA card and worked for Central Casting at the studios out there as well as moved my apprenticeship to work with the Southern California Millwrights local #1607 on a number of jobs out there having also worked on a lot of movies and television productions during this time as well. My California Apprenticeship was actually an Indenturement approved through Sacramento and affiliated with Santa Ana College in Santa Ana, California where I still have transcripts on file, there. I was also in one or two pretty big earthquakes including the Hector Mines earthquake during my time in Southern California. In January of 2003 I moved my carpenters union card back to Milwaukee by taking and passing their Journeymans Test and thereby completing my apprenticeship, albeit without going the graduation route. Next, I began studying earthquakes by reading books from the local libraries including the Geology Library at UW-Madison. This led to me polishing my knowledge of earthquakes that began the day of the Northridge Quake when I immediately researched the things that happened in the days leading up to that huge earthquake. My studies went right into my first book originally completed around December 2003 at the time of the Paso Robles, and Bam Iran earthquakes. I updated this in early 2005 after I had a particularly good alert out prior to the Great Sumatra Earthquake of December 2004. This new version of my first book “How To Predict Earthquakes” was represented by a literary agent but did not find a publisher. Nor did a “Compact Edition” that I shopped to publishers myself through 2007. I recently completed my latest earthquake book “My Earthquake Memoirs” and am currently in the process of submitting queries to Literary Agents on that new project. I more recently started writing earthquake stories and submitting them to newspapers, magazines, and etc. with the hope of getting a few earthquake stories printed in an attempt to establish myself as an earthquake writer and have references and experience towards getting one of my now many earthquake books published. Never married I currently reside at Moms house on Lake Koshkonong in Wisconsin where I watch Hurricanes, Typhoons, windstorms in general and earthquakes very closely on a daily basis and I write my EQ Blog, EQ Twitter, and EQ Guy Facebook among other earthquake writings and some Hollywood stuff, too! In August 2008 I was hired by Per-Mar Security in Madison, Wisconsin as an Event Security person for Wisconsin Badgers Football, Basketball, Hockey, Track Meets, and etc. and while Per-Mar does not have the Badgers contract this year I continue to be employed with them and go out on many other great assignments that I continue to enjoy! There has also been a streak of Film Production in Chicago and so I have been doing a lot of acting in movies and TV Shows shooting in Chicago this year! Chicago Fire is one of my favorites where I worked right at the actual Chicago Fire Department station that is seen on TV, and continue to hope for the next call on that Great TV Series on NBC. Perhaps the biggest part of my recent acting life is as a Mafioso on FOX-TV’s “Mob Doctor” where I play a Mobster at the funeral of the father of Grace the star of that show. When the scene does air you will see me and the two other “Mobster Mourners” discussing actual mob business while Grace recalls the day from her past. Additionally, I recently received my Screen Actors Guild Card in the mail and now hope that will lead to me getting to do some real acting and parts that will lead to lots more work in TV and Motion Pictures! Then possibly out to Hollywood again in the future to work in the movie business. . . and the earthquake business!!! Thank-You!!! LES
