Large Earthquakes Strike Greece

Greece is having an earthquake swarm, January 26, 2014 – USGS

The Earth has been quite active, which comes as no surprise, but this week, the activity actually started in Greece.


Typically, large earthquakes start along the Pacific Rim and resonate just about anywhere. On January 25, 2014, a 6.1 magnitude quake struck at Adipala, Indonesia, and today, January 26, 2014, Burma and Greece experienced large magnitude quakes, 5.2 and 6.1 respectively. But this string of activity actually started on the Eurasian Plate on January 24, 2014.

This is an interesting pattern of movement that should be noted.

And they try to convince us that earthquakes are not on the rise …..






Happy New Year, Vanuatu – 6.6 Quake Shakes Ancient Crust

The new year started with a 6.6 quake at Vanuatu – USGS

The first day of 2014 started off with a bang – a 6.6 magnitude quake rocked the island of Vanuatu, and luckily, a Pacific tsunami warning was not issued.

The Pacific Rim and Ring of Fire have been very active this holiday season, and Hawaii has been under flood alerts for the past several days from quakes occurring all along the Ring of Fire. This New Year’s quake may not have generated a tsunami, but you can guarantee that it will increase flooding along the coastlines from Northern Australia and New Zealand to New Guinea and Hawaii.

Vanuatu Is The Ancient Starting Point

I have always believed that Vanuatu is part of the oldest and most ancient section of the Pacific Ocean, and is one of the deepest places on the Earth where the planetary shifts begin.

If you study the patterns of polar shifting and the inceases in global earthquakes, you can see that the BIG crustal shifts begin at Vanuatu.

Pay attention to the reverb from this 6.6 quake. I suspect larger quakes will follow around the world in the days and weeks to come.

Happy New Year everyone – remember to keep your feet firmly on the ground, but don’t be alarmed if the ground shakes a little…

6.1 Quake At Vanuatu Kicks Off Quakes Along US West Coast

The west coast of the US is reacting to a 6.1 quake at Vanuatu, July 26, 2013 – USGS

A 6.1 magnitude quake at Vanuatu kicked off large quakes along the Western US coast, July 26, 2013.

Just hours after the 6.1 quake at Vanuatu, a 5.1 quake struck the Vancouver Island Region, Canada – USGS

Three hours after the Vanuatu quake, the Vancouver Island Region had a 5.1 magnitude quake 185 km (115 mi) west of Port Hardy.


I always watch the quakes at Vanuatu because the pattern that I have recorded shows strong quakes occur worldwide after Vanuatu opens up.

Here we go again …

The USGS small globe showing the earthquake at the South Sandwich Islands

A 6.2 magnitude quake happened on the South Sandwich Islands merely hours after a 6.1 quake rocked Vanuatu – USGS

South Sandwich Islands

Earthquake activity moved east into the South Atlantic near the South Pole when a 6.2 magnitude quake shook the South Sandwich Islands.

Over 188 earthquakes have occurred today, but in between these 6-pointers, the following larger quakes occurred:

  1. 6.2 South Sandwich Islands
  2. 5.1  South of the Fiji Islands
  3. 4.6 Koutouba, China
  4. 4.5 Adak, Alaska
  5. 4.9 Sikabaluan, Indonesia
  6. 4.6 Hirara, Japan
  7. 5.1  Port Hardy, Canada (Vancouver Island Region)
  8. 4.7 Tobelo, Indonesia
  9. 5.1  Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, Russia
  10. 4.9 Katubao, Philippines
  11. 6.1 Luganville, Vanuatu

Lots of moving’ and shakin’ going on …
