For those that don't know him, Jim Berkland is the geologist that successfully predicted the 1989 World Series earthquake (in fact he lost his job
with the USGS for making his prediction). His methods are based on the lunar effects on the tides and observing where fish and mammals start dieing
His claim is that the next big earthquake along the ring of fire will be this weekend. He was just interviewed on FOX News (March 15th, 2011) and here
is that interview segment
*** UPDATE: TO ADD ***
It appears that I did not follow up completely on the prediction by Jim. The full statement was that a window between March 19th through the 26th
were the ones to be especially vigilant on. I apologize again as I thought I had done all my homework prior to the posting of this thread, sorry, I
had a human moment..
*** /UPDATE TO ADD ***
I was able to access Jim Berkland's forum to be able to get the official prediction..
MARCH 19-26, 2011 PREDICTIONS
The extremely clear March window has a 90% chance of producing the following quakes: with at least one meeting each of the following criteria:
(1) 3.5 - 7.0M within 140 miles of Mt. Diablo
(2) 3.5 - 7.0M within 140 miles of Los Angeles.
(3) 3.5 - 7.0M with an epicenter located in Washington or Oregon.
(4) 7.0 + M major quake globally, probably in the Pacific Ring of Fire.
Now at least we have some locations..
...To put that in perspective...
The Loma Prieta earthquake, also known as the Quake of '89 and the World Series Earthquake, was a major earthquake that struck the San Francisco Bay
Area of California on October 17, 1989, at 5:04 p.m. local time. Caused by a slip along the San Andreas Fault, the quake lasted 10–15 seconds and
measured 6.9 on the moment magnitude scale (surface-wave magnitude 7.1) or 6.9 on the open-ended Richter Scale. The quake killed 63 people throughout
northern California, injured 3,757 and left some 3,000-12,000 people homeless.

Just found a youtube video of the same interview..
****EDIT TO ADD****
Something I thought that might make for an interesting experiment...
As the day of Mr.Berkland's prediction approaches, it might be interesting if the members of ATS took the time to check the newspaper (etc.) in their
local area to see if there are any reports of 'lost animals' (IE: pets etc) or reports of 'wild animals' being sighted within a community/town. These
are supposedly indicators as animals seem to be able to sense oncoming earthquakes long before we humans know that an earthquake is going to hit.
And speaking of humans..
I've toyed with a theory that as we are having the poles shifting, that we humans may be able to experience more scenarios that we perhaps may have
shrugged off as intuition, coincidence's etc. in the past. Perhaps our bodies might be able to be a bit more sensitive to what is happening because of
the fields around us changing (add to this celestial influences also).
I bring this up because on the day of the Japan earthquake, for 20 hours prior, I was very discombobulated and off-kelter all day. My sleep had been
interrupted with my waking up four (4) times in a complete sweat and not able to walk well to towel myself off, my equilibrium was that off. And all
during that day, I felt like I was off (not myself), stuffed up head, weird knots in my stomach, in a cloud-like feeling (BTW, no alcohol or 'other
medication' was in use for over a month prior to this scenario). I even mentioned it to my relatives I was visiting asking if they felt weird also
(which they didn't). I should point out that I in no way make claim that my feelings are associated with the Japan Earthquake, but I do find it
curious and so is documented in my files for further possible review/additions (as that is all one can do at this time). But it does bring up an
I know that there are certain people that are extremely sensitive to seismic events, in fact I interviewed several years back for ATS, Ms. Charlotte
King who is just one of these people. She was even asked by several 3-letter agencies to come to work for them because of her uncanny accuracy in
seismic predictions. She was the one that successfully predicted the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens volcano (down to minutes btw). In fact they actually
have named the effect after her, it's called "The Charlotte King Effect", I dug into the ATS archives to find the interview if anyone is interested in
hearing her story here
, and I believe her website is still on that page too if you
want to research her.
OK... the reason why I bring her up alongside my probably unrelated weird ill feelings on the Japan earthquake. Besides our being vigilant in looking
at the animal movement data, we should also keep tabs on ourselves to see how we feel and our friends and family too. This could be an excellent time
for data gathering if indeed Mr. Berkland's prediction comes true. It would also help establish a better 'model' for possible seismic indicators for
So if you'd like to participate, please feel free to post those findings and data here in the thread and I'll thank everyone in advance for their
assistance in the gathering of this information. I'll be sure to have the ATS radio show
) report the findings if we indeed have stumbled upon something
So again, what were looking for is animal movement (either lost, disappeared or appearing) and people feeling off-kelter/weird/sick prior to an event.
The more information you can provide the better for this data gathering experiment.
