It would appear this thread has totally gotten off the rails.

I would lay the mod hammer down if I only could.

Anyway, I hope no news comes out of Cali tomorrow. West Side!

My dog has been acting strangely for a week in MO. I hope the New Madrid didn't get any bright ideas.

EDIT - Looks like the mods are on the scene.

Your post reads like a giant fortune cookie ... I cant even take you seriously.

Now on to the topic here ...

I was just looking at the fault zones in California. While California rattles all the time and it's not all that big a deal, on the occasion we do get a good shake. This thread implies that we may be in for another shake if big proportions.
I started looking at the fault lines closely to see what patterns there were but nothing stood out.
I then moved south on the fault zone and all by their little lonesome selves, sat a concentration of quakes ranging from 4.0 to 5.5 right on top of the fault in the middle of the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez)

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,

***EDIT TO ADD***
I've had this information bumped up to the front page,,,

Thanks for the update and possible locations Johnny Anonymous, I am glad I no longer live near Mt. Diablo, in fact almost bought a home at the foot of Mt. Diablo in 1988 but ended up in Berkeley.


Still hoping that Jim Berland is wrong.

Sorry folks I got caught up in that human moment.

Is Jim Berklands predication for March 19 through the 26 is that the window or time frame? Going by what was first posted. The 19 being the start? So any quake could happen at any time in those dates on the West Coast.
So it could be a whole week of waiting and people sitting on edge. Just trying to get more clear information here.

Maybe he made an important discovery.

I just wanted to keep this thread alive as I was a complete skeptic of Mr. Berklands for many many years, even getting into an argument in a chat room many many years ago. Well, since then, I've watched him become more and more accurate with predicting quakes. Not to say that I still don't entirely think it's possible, but if ANYONE can forecast an event, it's Jim.

Which takes me to the next side of things. On Wednesday evening 3/10/11, I had a vivid dream about an earthquake. I was waiting for the quake to happen in my dream, fully expecting it to happen and even remember looking at the USGS website for "current earthquake around the world" and pointing to the Japan quake and thinking to myself, see, knew this would happen. Well, I know I thought that this happened because earlier in the week, the 7.2 event that happened off of Sendai triggered this in my head. I researched that event exhaustedly as I am very familiar with Sendai and knew the 7.2 was a huge quake. To my relief, no major damage. When I was alerted by the USGS on Thursday evening of the 8.4 (at the time, upgraded to 8.9 and then 9.0), my heart sank as I knew there was no escaping damage and possibly fatal injuries, which we obviously know the outcome now. I can't help but think my dream was somehow connected. I even told my girlfriend about the dream prior to the quake happening.

This all brings me to this passed Tuesday night, BEFORE I heard about Mr. Berkland's forecast. I had another very vivid dream about yet another massive earthquake. But this one was different. I remember where I was when it hit, (at work in my office), and it was incredibly violent. Im my dream I was alerted by the USGS that the quake was not just one quake, but multiple quakes all over Los Angeles. I have NO idea what this means, but I vividly remember seeing in my dream the USGS map of LA and the San Fernando Valley and there were no less than three major events, 6.0+. I just have to say this now, so there is public record of my dream in the event it comes to fruition once again.

I also want to add that I NEVER dream about earthquakes. I am an avid follower of the USGS and although I am not a geologist, I studied Geology extensively in college. I am connected to the USGS very closely tracking the information that gets distributed after every world wide event.

I hope Jim is not right, and I hope that my dreams mean nothing, but just had to share.

Prepare instead of panic.

Thanks
Jeff

I'm in Orange County, CA. It's the wierdest thing, but early this week our Australian Shepherd dog started acting really strange and out of character. She is normally very happy and friendly and responds to our commands. Since early this week when we go outside in our backyard, she goes out but then will not come in. This is not normal as she always wants to come in and doesn't ever want to be left outside on her own. As well, when we call her, she just stands completely still sort of planting all four paws and legs very stiff and looks at us. She doesn't move, just looks at us. If we go out to try to round her up, she runs around to the side yard and stops and gives us a wierd look again. We finally just let her be and figured she would come in when she wanted to and then she usually lays down and just stares at the sliding door from a distance. We were discussing how strange this behavior was and were wondering if she was sick or something, but she's not. When she eventually comes in, she eats fine, etc. I was actually wondering if she was feeling something due to the Japan earthquake but it was so far away I didn't know how she could.

Then I saw the video of the Jim Berkland interview and wondered if our dog is actually feeling something in advance. It kind of creeps us out. When I got a link to this site for a topic on the earthquake and nuclear disaster, I started looking around at the post and saw this so I decided to post what's going on since it seems relevant.

Anyway, we have a fairly good earthquake supply but going to the store to get some more water, etc. just in case. Wondering if I should first put on my radiation suit and bring a lead umbrella!

It wasn't like this was all manufactured by FOX
Jim Berkland was and has been on several news stations in the past week as well as radio shows.
I personally do not like FOX news at all. I wont get into that but the segment with Jim Berkland had nothing to do with their regular reporting. If anything. They brought him in to have a laugh. In the end, he may be the one having the last laugh.

Those are honestly some rather vague predictions... 3.5 earthquakes happen in California on a regular basis, so of course his predictions stand an incredibly high chance of being correct. This information actually makes believe him less, as he was predicting a major quake before, and now he's vastly changed that prediction to include a massive window of magnitudes.

Reporting from Berkeley CA

Well, I am preparing. Being the great procrastinator that I am I should have done all this a year ago.. Anyway, I walked to Radio Shack and got myself an emergency radio. That the only thing I didn't have in my emergency cache. Outside Radio Shack, on the sidewalk, and it's been there for at least 10 years, is a painted graffitti sign that says "Nuclear Corridor! Coming soon!" Which is off topic but I looked at it in a new way today


Went over to the UPS packing store after Radio Shack and got some bubble wrap. Now I am packing and wrapping all my precious glass things. And taking things down from high shelves.

Cats are sleeping, no unusual activity going on here at least for now.

Prepare and stay safe my friends!

Just need to correct you, 3.5 earthquakes in So. California are NOT that common. I know, I live here. Here's a list of all 3.5 earthquakes in So Cal recently, for the last 6 months:

3.3 2011/03/17 - Baja California (Mexico)

And I had to reach for that one, technically not even in the So Cal area.

Just sayin.

I'd like to comment that I don't believe that you fully understood or read Jim Berkland's prediction correctly.
He states that they might be at a minimum of 3.5 to 7.0 in magnitude.

...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.

The way I'm reading it is that there is a 90% chance of an earthquake of at least 3.5 in magnitude to hit three of those areas. I've just proven that a 3.5 magnitude quake is not a rare occurrence in a 140 mile radius from either Mount Diablo or Los Angeles.

If I'm reading what he's saying incorrectly, I apologize and would appreciate an explanation as to what exactly he means.

I am connected to the USGS, I have this info, none of these events are near the LA area. I'm not trying to fight you on this, it's pure science and I'm not disputing the territory that Mr. Berkland included in his prediction, just the fact that you referenced that 3.5 are common in California while I was referring to Los Angeles. They are not that common in LA where a lot of the posts are centering their attention on due to the mass die-off of fish in Redondo Beach, the beached whales in Baja Cali, and the perigee of the Supermoon combined with the full moon, which occur 50 minutes apart form one another tomorrow, March 19, 2011. Again, I think all this will do is make some more prepared than they were prior to reading this. If that is the ONLY thing that happens, and I hope that is the case, this discussion has served a human purpose.
