Mods must be sleeping in on Sunday AM.
This is interesting that they are calling for a large earthquake though, because the Earth has been relatively quiet lately. Normally I will look at
the USGS world earthquakes map
which shows quakes of 4.5+ over the past two weeks. The
number shown is usually between 170 and 210 depending on how active Earth is during that period. Early in the year I recall it always being around
200 or more, but the past few months it has been lower. It is at only 158 today.
I wonder if this is part of the prediction they make. If many small/medium quakes are not firing off, then maybe a large one is building? OR the
Earth is settling for a bit and things will just be quiet for awhile?
I don't think there is any sure-fire way to predict quakes, so time will tell. It has been very quiet though.
