We're seeing some big earthquakes in Japan, following a lot of activity in S America. Although it appears as if the big events have not started yet. The trend seems to be increased activity before it actually completes, while other areas mentioned in the 7 of 10 heat up and begin showing signs of the stress. That said, I'm trying my best to give out warnings and prepare anyone I can. Most of my family and friends live in fairly close proximity to Lake Erie (between Cleveland and Toledo, areas mentioned that I've read about, I am aware what will happen! Thankfully they do not live in the cities themselves, many in more rural areas or suburbs at worst). I'm concerned that many people just won't believe anything until it happens in their own backyard. In the 20+ years I've lived here, we've never experienced anything more than an earthquake in the 3's and most didn't feel the shaking. Will we be expecting more points along the adjustment zone (such as further north) to have increased earthquake activity than normal, even just little ones? Or is this region just in the area that will be affected by the one large jolt with little warning as mentioned? (And thus I'll have to give those I can warnings regarding Japan and watching their pets, then hope for the best?)
There is general confusion about our predicted Earth changes. This is most often envisioned as happening all at once, suddenly, without warning. Where earthquakes and stretch zone accidents do seem to happen almost without warning, their approach is never that silent. The N American continent has been getting these warnings for some time, with increasing intensity. Quake swams in the New Madrid region and west of this spot have been occurring, and are on the increase. Sinkholes and shifting roadways are occurring from Pennsylvania through Tennessee and elsewhere. The center of the bow being formed by the N American continent, the San Diego area, has an epidemic of water main breaks, and the snapping rock inland from this point has affected a mine in Utah. None of this is officially ascribed to the New Madrid adjustment that is pending, though FEMA gives evidence of their nervous preparations for the disaster they know is pending.
Will the New Madrid just suddenly rip with our predicted magnitude 9 quake? Hardly. There will be a progression of quakes in the magnitude 4-5 range all along the New Madrid fault line, which runs up to the Great Lakes and thence along the seaway. The bow will become more stressed, cracking rock inland from San Diego all the way to the Mississippi, and forcing adjustments north and south of this point too, from the Aleutian Islands to the tip of Mexico. Sinkholes and crevasses will proliferate throughout the US in her stretch zones, in a swath that ranges from the New England states south to the tip of Florida and all points west. This is a large bow. Then quakes will increase to the point of being considered magnitude 6-7 along the long New Madrid fault line and its attendant splinters. The New Madrid adjustment will thus NOT sneak up on you, but will be well announced.
