I want to begin today by saying that the Northern California Region that I will be discussing or NorCal, has come up in many of my past EQ Alerts and Official Predictions and that I have a history of what I might say is a high degree of accuracy when it comes to this region up around Eureka, California.
On the day of the Northridge Earthquake I researched all the things that preceded many other major earthquakes throughout history and found a lot of them were preceded by Major Hurricanes making landfall. Not long after that day Hurricane John was a Category 5 and came within 15 miles of Johnston Atoll in the Pacific Ocean on August 25, 1994. On an old typewriter I typed several letters and sent them to my friends in the Hollywood area telling them all I knew at the time was Hurricanes, such as Hurricane John, had been known to precede Major Earthquakes because I had only been researching this matter just over 6 months at the time. On September 1, 1994, seven days later a 7.0 Earthquake struck 70 Miles Offshore from Cape Mendocino, California and it became the first ever fairly accurate prediction albeit with no idea where it might have shook.
In the years since that very exciting episode in my years as The EQ Alert Guy, I have also sent out “EQ Alert: California” following the landfalls of Hurricanes Frances, Ivan and Jeanne on September 5, 16, and 25 of 2004 and a couple days later on September 28, 2004 the Parkfield Earthquake struck. I had also written a great EQ Alert in December of 2003 in the days prior to the Paso Robles Earthquake.
On December 22, 2009 I filed an Official Prediction with both the California Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Council and the National Council which featured the banner headline “OFFICIAL PREDICTION FOR A MAJOR EARTHQUAKE TO STRIKE CALIFORNIA BEFORE JANUARY 12, 2010.” You may view that @ http://earthquakealert.blogspot.com/2009/12/official-prediction-california-just.html
Then, on the evening of January 9, 2010 Eureka, California got a 6.5 Richters Earthquake 33 Miles Offshore from Eureka! Ironically the date I gave in the banner headline and a few days after the Eureka 2010 Earthquake was the Haiti Earthquake of January 12, 2010. I predicted that sort of movement of the North American Tectonic Plate and it is similar to todays story.
When Typhoon Roke made landfall at Japan on September 21, 2011 the line representing its path across that country led directly to Southern Oregon and Northern California. Someone on one of the EQ Blogs mentioned that the October 2011 Full Moon was to be on October 12. Since the full moon would be on about Day 21 after that landfall I immediately bought a ticket and flew out to San Francisco to “Quake Chase” this upcoming event! I also filed an Official Prediction with CEPEC and NEPEC dated September 22, 2011, in addition to delivering a copy by hand to CEPEC at USGS Menlo Park via Caltrain/BART with this headline, “OFFICIAL PREDICTION FOR A MAJOR EARTHQUAKE TO STRIKE EUREKA, CALIFORNIA BEFORE OCTOBER 21, 2011.” On the day I arrived, the day before the full moon or October 11, 2011. You can that O.P. @ http://earthquakealert.blogspot.com/2011_09_01_archive.html Today I refer to that trip to San Francisco as “Quake Chase 2011” and I personally consider it the very first ever successful Quake Chase because at 8:15pm on the night of that October 2011 full moon of October 12, 2011 there was a 5.9 Richters Earthquake Offshore from Coos Bay, Oregon which shook the neighborhood I was staying in Daly City, although it was later downgraded to a 5.3, here is that story @ http://www.anzavalleyoutlook.com/story/62541/
Regarding the Official Prediction that I am filing herein, the winds associated with the recent EF-5 Tornado at El Reno, Oklahoma on May 31, 2013 were reported as high as 250 Mph. When I tracked the line of potential seismic energy that this huge tornado would leave behind, I immediately noticed Northern California again. However I also tracked it veering Southeast and discovered some additional shaky places and the June New Moon was quickly approaching on that date, too. It was only days after that tornado that I discovered all of this and wrote out an EQ Blog Entry for Antiqua & Barbuda with the following headline, “ New Moon Window Begins 9am Friday! ADD: Antiqua, Barbuda, Dominica & Montserrat to EQ Alerts!” You can view that EQ Blog @ http://earthquakealert.blogspot.com/2013/06/new-moon-window-begins-9pm-friday-add.html
Early that Sunday Morning, June 9, 2013 and within the June New Moon Window, Antiqua received a 3.8 Richters Earthquake just 2 miles East of the Island of Antiqua. Also shown in a Digital EQ Alert, link in next paragraph.
That was the direction of the path on the ground of the El Reno Tornado. In the Digital EQ Alert video I produced covering this topic @ http://earthquakealert.blogspot.com/2013/06/antiqua-shook-will-northern-california.html
You will notice the I have drawn this line in both directions because it became common over the years for earthquakes to happen in either direction from the biggest such windstorms, possibly due to the vortex having winds that reciprocate. Therefore today it is my opinion that the success I achieved with Antiqua, could become the next big Northern California Earthquake this time of 2013 before July 13, 2013. I will leave my guess as to the size of this possible shaker same as the headline, or 7.0, but of course it could range anywhere from a 6.6 up to a 7.6 or so. Occasionally some people like to guess the exact size, so 7.0 for my exact guess based on my very first such success back in 1994.
Hurricane Barbara’s landfall at Mexico on May 29, 2013 caused me to write an EQ Blog that could possibly have also been yet another O.P. for New Madrid, Illinois, and Chicago. I know it might not sound like much, but they just got a 2.4 North of Blytheville, Arkansas tonight and it has been a very long time since the New Madrid Region has had much shaking at all. That’s now twice I consider myself correct in less than a week, it also now possibly means there is still an Illinois or Chicago Earthquake coming for up to 5 Magnitude, yet. Please make a note of that.
I also have to have one final extension for my Official Prediction for the region South of Los Angeles through July 3, 2013 when it should virtually run out and will have struck either that region, Hawaii or out to sea beyond there by then, and hopefully unnoticed.
