In a recent thread, I documented the pattern of earthquakes in Japan which led me to believe that Tokyo may be at increased risk for a bigger
Critical New Quake Could Mean Impending Disaster For Japan
It started with this picture:
It has progressed into one of the most incredible aftershock sequences ever. However, what has just occurred with a brand new quake minutes ago, may
potentially confirm that the southern subduction zone is threatening to come alive in a very bad way. And I have been saying it all along, once I saw
that first key quake from the other thread. Please read it.
This is the new quake, a 5.1 on the southern zone, and right in the middle of it:
With THIS quake however, I estimate that the chances of a very big quake threatening Tokyo have become EXTREME and SEVERE. I urge Japan once again to
consider at least warning its citizens in Tokyo of an impending catastrophe.
With all the other quakes that have happened surrounding Tokyo, as you can see from the map, the activity has marked its area of unrest early on, and
imo has telegraphed what is to come. And it has happened almost verbatim to what I have been expecting, with a few surprises and even a new fault
going off. Again, read the other thread.
This thread is the final warning. It should be obvious what is about to happen to Tokyo, and if you seismologists in Japan didn't listen to me before,
perhaps you'll listen now. You got quakes surrounding you, and now ANOTHER big quake in the middle of the bottom zone. The tsunami will be large, and
so close to your shore that there won't be much time to react.
I URGE you, DO SOMETHING. WARN YOUR PEOPLE. And even perhaps consider a temporary evacuation of the city, before it is too late. Because you are about
to get slammed. I estimate an 80% chance or better of this happening within the next two weeks, but may happen any time now. LOOK at that quake, and
LOOK at the others on that zone. WHAT MORE WARNING SIGNS DO YOU WANT?
Do not forget these as well:
All along that activity has defined the zone that is to rupture. It all adds up to one big mess. If that southern zone unzips we could see a literal
repeat of what just occurred, except centered around Tokyo.
