Major areas of interest: Of particular note are the circles all around the Pacific Ring of Fire. Most notably are Japan and southward along the fault line, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Zealand and from Ecuador to Panama.

The area building around Hawaii has been developing over the last four days and may indicate a buckling in the region.

There may be some small shakes along the New England states.

(DEYO NOTES: Ecuador's Geophysics Institute at the National Polytechnic School, does not list quakes on a daily basis as does the USGS and other entities, but when there are significant events, they post them in PDFs. A sometimes more all-encompassing earthquake resource than USGS is EMSC - European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre. Go to their current map, go to their current list.

Stan's analysis shows areas of possible earthquake or volcanic activity, or extreme storm conditions for the next 1 to 5 days. Pay particular attention to areas marked by white circles. The continuous yellow line denotes plate tectonic boundaries as well as the Ring of Fire.

Disclaimer: Some of the forecast stress areas can be in error up to 30% due to cloud cover interference and false signals from buoys.
