Increase in earthquake activity.

After days of earthquake swarms near Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskly, Russia, a magnitude 8.3 earthquake struck off Russia’s eastern coast in the Sea of Okhotsk on Friday May 24, 2013.

Large quakes have been bouncing back and forth from the northern polar regions to the southern polar regions, with a 5.2 striking west of Macquarie Island, south of Australia, a 5.1 on the southern Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and 5.8 south of Fiji. Over 403 earthquakes have occurred around the world this week.

Volcanic eruptions are increasing. Chirinkotan volcano south of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskly has increased in activity; the Cleveland volcano in Alaska and Mexico’s Popcatepeti volcano southeast of Mexico City have had increasing eruptions sending smoke and ash into the atmosphere as high as 1.5 miles (2.5 km).

There is no doubt that Earth activity has increased over the past few days, and expect more to come.

The Earth is definitely on the move.



7.4 Earthquake Strikes South of Fiji Islands

Three days ago, a swarm of earthquakes began rattling the north polar region near Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskly Russia.  Thursday, May 23, 2013, the south polar region responded with a 7.4 quake south of the Fiji Islands.

More Activity

Watch for more activity to respond to this polar shift, such as more melting of ice at the poles, and more resonance earthquakes along the Ring of Fire. Earthquakes in areas that typically do not have quakes will also become more active.

Actually, before the 7.4 South Pacific quake occurred, many areas around the world did wake up. Greece had two earthquakes – a 4.0 followed by a 4.7 magnitude quake; Arkansas, USA had a 3.4 quake after Oregon had a 3.9 and Montana had a 3.3. Peru had a 5.8, and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskly, Russia has just kept going ..

There is a definite increase in earthquakes at both the North and South Poles, and the entire planet is responding.
