I find it interesting that there is activity north and south of the pacific north west, but there is very little activity around the Juan De Fuca subduction zone.

If a big one is going to hit, I have to predict the area off of Vancouver Island or as far south as Oregon could have a megathrust event in the next few days.

But maybe I should take this over to the BTS Dreams & Personal Predictions Forum because I'm no expert....


I just found this thread, and while scrolling through this struck me personaly.
I have been banned from GLP and left behind alot of pretty sweet information beginning with the first swarm at Rat Island a couple of weeks ago. I can not get in any more, but if some of you would like to check out some pretty good talking about these Alaska swarms and more, then go to: www.godlikeproductions.com.../27/06&display=30&page=42#4555433

Looking for a place to pick up some discussion about all this activity in Alaska as well as the coastal states of the Pacific North West.

Very interested in the Juan de Fuca. I feel the same way as you anxietydisorder. I feel strongly that it is this Juan de fuca plate that deserves a great deal of attention.

I am going to go back through the rest of this thread, catch up on whats here, and return in a bit.

I have a great deal of information and data that I would like to share. At the same time I don't want to come in here like a wildman and start going crazy posting everything that I might like too.

Glad I found a place to hang out with regards to discussion about this.

There is a lot going on with much of the Pacific Plate, North American Plate, and the Ring of Fire as a whole.

There is way to much for me to try and keep up with it all. So I put me energies into this specific area of the Gorda, Juan de Fuca, and Explorer plates.

Lets talk!

Yes indeed most wise to catch up on back posts in this thread, especially the links to iris and USGS, then you can watch the "Ring of Fire" daily.

Okay Asteroid missed... they were right ... THIS time


Polar Ice still melting at Alarming Rates.....

Yellowstone is still holding.....

Californis still strangely quite.....

Okay we can sleep tonight

A great deal of my recent interest has been centered around the coastal states of the Pacific North West. I know many have many ideas about the big one, and where it will stike. These recent quakes in Alaska are out of the ordinary. Sure, Alaska has a history of quakes from the mainland of Alaska on out the chain of islands. But this recent two week period has exceeded in this short period the total number of quakes for the Rat/Fox/Andreanof islands regions for all years combined since 1973.

That aside....... Without going into a huge and lengthy text describing why I have become focused on the PNW, I would like to join in by pointing out where I am at now.

As the list grows for this activity below, it just increases the chances for a PNW quake sooner than later.


This is a list of the recent Northern California’s offshore quakes on the Gorda Plate. It is important to note that this list does not include a lengthy list of Northern California quakes that are not offshore. There is a great number on land and interesting to see them all basicly sitting on the subduction zone between the Pacific and North American Plates.
I keep saying, and am going to say it again……These Gorda Plate quakes just add to the indicators that pressure is still building in the Juan de Fuca Plate off the Coast of Oregon and Washington.
Pressure is Still building up on the Juan de Fuca from the North as well, as these offshore quakes below from British Columbia indicate for the Explorer Plate directly north of the Juan de Fuca.
Still guessing a sizable event offshore for the Coastal areas of Washington and Oregon. My humble opinion only.........

Again this is just my humble opinion.

Just a few short days ago while the moon was full, everything you see here earthquake.usgs.gov... that is now yellow was then all blue. Very active! Today we look and everything is yellow. I think we will be surprised once the moon becomes full again. I believe this will all light up again like a blue christmas tree. I aslo do not believe this last comet had any effect on this planets seismic activities. Again just my humble opinion..


The amount of activity that is moving inland is not normal either. six months or a year ago you would not have seen this inland activity. Not even close!

Any way, I believe this next full moon will bring intensity in both magnitude and frequency at the exact same locations as have been active recently. Alaska gave us an example of that with this last swarm. The magnitude and frequency were both greater than the first swarm located at the Rat/Fox island Knaga volcano region a couple of weeks earlier

I don't want to start rambling too much. Just want to go on the record as saying that this next week I beleive will be significant and noteworthy regarding a general overall increases accross the board. Especially for the PNW, Alaska, and Northern California.
I think it is just a little premature to expect a significant event for the PNW. I am expecting the activity from the Aleautian Islands to continue as they have towards mainland Alaska then to see activity begin down the West Coast of Canada, and on down to the British Columbia's Explorer Plate. From there I think it depends on what is happening offshore Northern California's Gorda Plate.
One thing for sure, and I am not a woo woo doomsdayer, but we are I believe in the first stages of some significant West Coast events.
Time will tell............

I saved a whole lot of links and great info that came up while monitoring these quakes at GLP. Here are some great ones.

A guy from GLP posted these. They are awesome links:

Here is a link to plate dynamics from the USGS pubs.usgs.gov..." target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow"> pubs.usgs.gov...
It is significant because it demonstrates how the Pacific Plate rotates towards the North West and the North American Plate moves South West.

This next one provides a clickable map as well as a description of plate tectonics www.extremescience.com...

Plate Tectonic History of Southern California, along with a quicktime download animation: animations.geol.ucsb.edu...

The reason these were provided was because it was thought that the two sub plates ( Juan de Fuca and Cocos ) might be moving in response to the Aletutian Island shift while the main North American, Pacific plate boundaries are staying somewhat stationary. www.iris.edu...

There are some great people over there posting at this GLP www.godlikeproductions.com.../27/06&mpage=1 thread. If anyone here would like to go over and post this ATS thread there, I bet a few would join in here………

One thing I like to do because of my interest in the Juan de Fuca, Gorda, and Explorer Plates is to check daily the webicorder stations. Here is the link to the clickable station map. quake.wr.usgs.gov..." target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow"> quake.wr.usgs.gov... I noticed today that the upper most Washington State coastal station OFR has been removed. No idea why. Sort of a bummer because it was the closest station to Canada’s BC coast.

One thing that has been consistent is while every other station from the upper most coastal location of Washington all the way down the coast to Northern California is that they have been fairly quiet. The exception to this are the central Oregon coastal stations TALO and TEKO. Every time I check them they show activity. They also always show some obvious and drastic spike anomalies. At least they have not been explained so far.
Today is no exception.
Here is the Toledo Oregon station TOLO. quake.wr.usgs.gov... You can see the spike anomalies and what appear to be small tremors. I have thought that there may be a EMF Scalar type activity going on there. No proof……. But some interesting sites that discuss the possibility.

The Tahenitch station TAKO is not as active today as it usually is. There is activity at 20:00 UTC for July 3rd. quake.wr.usgs.gov...

As you will see if you check every other station up and down the coast daily, they are all quiet except these two. I have some thoughts, but will save them for later.

I would also like to post some seismograms from these two stations later for opinions on what these anomalies might be. So far the only explanation is that they are possible EM signals of some type. Possibly some micro fracturing going on . If so then ti may be indication of significant seismic event in the future.

Inland stations are quiet today as well….. They usually are.

THE SHUTTLE IS OFF!!!!!!!

Why all the fuss? Its only a little rumble. The more little rumbles the better. Releases pressure slowly without serious damage

Sorry folks. I am in error.

When I first read the seismic report I failed to go straight to the map to confirm.
The words Straight of Juan de Fuca threw me off.

This is not the location that I am talking about when I talk about a Juan de Fuca plate.

I apologize for the error.

All is still well at the Juan de Fuca.

I thought it was a little soon for the quake I am expecting off the coast of Washington and Oregon.

Oh well.........

Well, I first of all I was in error.

Second, if the event were to have been located on the Juan de Fuca Plate it would be a very significant event, and possible precurser to a larger quake on this plate.

Yes it is possible that smaller tremors like this could be considered good in terms of pressure release. But there is no way to seperate knowing this.

So in my humble opinion, the fuss is because the Juan de Fuca, Gorda, and Explorer plates would play an important role towards possible large seismic event for the coastal PNW.

In my first post I mentioned how I put my energies into this specific area of the Gorda, Juan de Fuca, and Explorer plates. I follow this more closely than any other activity going on around the United States, Canada, and Alaska. So for me, any seismic activity offshore PNW, is right up my alley of interest.

The Juan de Fuca, Gorda, and Explorer Plates are always active. Events like todays 3.2 are significant for this region. As I mentioned earlier any activity off the coast of Canada's BC and Northern California play significant role for the entire Endeavour region.

Todays 3.2 is part of what this 4.4 event below is related too.


Juan de Fuca, West Valley Earthquake Sequence
June 28th, 2006

June 28, 2006:

SOSUS is currently detecting a relatively small, but ongoing earthquake sequence at the West Valley of the northern Juan de Fuca Ridge. The first earthquake, likely the mainshock, occurred at 23:21Z on June 27 2006 and was also recorded by the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network which assigned this event a magnitude of 4.4. Over the last 12 hours, 113 aftershocks have been detected occurring at a rate of 5-10 events per hour. The earthquakes from this sequence are centered (yellow dot) along the northeastern side of the valley, relatively distant from either ends of the ridge segment. This activity is significant in that the West Valley segment has not exhibited a large amount of seismicity during the past 15 years of SOSUS recording. We will continue to closely monitor this activity and will send another announcement if the activity increases significantly.
June 30, 2006:

The attached updated map shows locations of the m4.4 mainshock (yellow star) and the best located aftershocks (white circles). Activity has decreased in the last the last day to 1-2 events per hour. www.ridge2000.org...

"But this recent two week period has exceeded in this short period the total number of quakes for the Rat/Fox/Andreanof islands regions for all years combined since 1973."


The list you provided was for the general area of Juan de Fuca. History of Quakes Plate area.

I meant to be talking about from the year 1973 regarding the RAT/ FOX/ ANDREANOF ISLANDS area, and how these recent swarms have been greater than the quakes from that general area since 1973.

If you look back further in this thread you will see a post by a moderator that showed us a list from this same source that gave us data from 1973 clearly showing that the Fox Islands have had similar and greater swarms in the past

I can see how you got it mixed up.

I will go and look. I compared it to the following:

I found this for history 1973 to present

1973 to present for Rat Island history of quakes

1973 to present for Andreanof Island history of quakes

Looks like there have been quite a few more recently with these recent swarms than had been from 73 to present.

Any idea what page that reference may have been on that your talking about?
