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.
