Discussion in the comments about the other quakes on the Pacific Rim of Fire....

There have been 7,000 aftershocks of the Christchurch New Zealand quake of last year .

And There was just a few days ago a 6+ quake in Northern Japan....now this.

I think I got this one right.

Shortly after the Big Japan quake I predicted the next 7+ would be off the coast of Kamchatca or Alaska.

The depth of the quake must have some bearing on the absence of a tsunami. At a quake depth of 38 miles maybe the sea bed did not shift at all.

Christchurch New Zealand is still getting shocks, up to 5.7, I think there have been 7,000 aftershocks higher than 3 since September so far. Most of the central city is written off, and several suburbs, 5,000 homes, have been condemned as unsafe, due to either structural damage or unstable ground and liquefaction dangers.

A new fault line opened last week, to the east of the previous one.

“A high speed stream from CH457 became the dominant solar wind source after noon. There was a sudden change in solar wind parameters at SOHO at 02:18 GMT on June 23, maybe the arrival of the CME observed on June 21″
(thanks to Solen.info)

CH459 is now Earth-facing…

Solar Climate Change: Public Warning for 27th June 2nd July

******************EXCERPT*********************************

Wednesday, June 22nd 2011, 3:39 PM EDT

In case you missed the Piers Corbyn announcement on Al Jazeera TV on the 14th of June for a major Solar Climate Change for the period 27th June to 2nd July, the above chart should be made public for all to see, so please pass on.

During this period Piers Corbyn expects another major earthquake and a volcanic eruption to take place. So far his "earthquake trial" has been very accurate since the start of the trial in March, so who would argue with him that we will not see anything of note during this time frame.

Stay tuned for more.

Correct...after Japan, lots of stories about the Pacific ring of fire..the previous other BIG quakes..NZ, Japan, Chile..had all been at the corners of the Pacific plate..what’s left is the NE corner...the Cascadia fault..

That is a correct observation. The tsunami warning was sent as a precaution and once the depth was determined lent credence to it not being created in the first place.

found this off ‘ring of fire’ keyword.

wifey is headed to alaska next month for a 10-day with niece and friend,, gets back and then we hit the Med sea in Sept for 2 weeks float, around santorini and rhodes, naples and venice.. all which have been blow’d or shook’d up or flooded real good over the years..

Oh well.. the earth is full of dangers.. and I don’t mean not having your credit cards handy when ya see a good deal.

PS.. see news that Huntington Beach shot down a sale of land to build a mosque.. trend? we can only hope.
