I predict that within 2 days, Sollog will crop up and announce that he had "predicted" an earthquake for the "ring of fire" for sometime this month. It'd be interesting to check on the tectonic plate movements... Manilla is in the "ring of fire" as is Hawaii and (if memory serves) volcanos on the west coast of the US including Rainier and Hood.
