Expected Earthquake, Volcanic or Storm Activity for the Next 1 to 5 Days

Are YOU Prepared?

Signs of seismic stress are showing in the Juan de Fuca / Gorda Ridge area. Also, the white arrows indicate the locations of the Murray Fracture Zone which may be indicating seismic stresses. However, due to the arm of a storm passing over this area, it may be nothing more than cloud cover. The storms over the Murray Ridge are pictured here on satellite.

There are interesting seismic signals in Canada on her eastern side.

Expect more aftershocks in Japan after today's 7.2 shaker.

Another small quake could hit the Pakistan region and Western Indonesia has a huge storm overhead, but the likelihood of quakes exists there as shown.

Raw Data Map

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. Go to the raw data map where it is easier to see the areas of concern. Go to Stan's earthquake map archives.

DEYO NOTES: For earthquake maps, see the USGS "shake maps" (click anywhere on the global map for a closer view). For quakes USGS may not list, go to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center's map and scroll to the bottom of the page for a global view. You can compare these maps for the next 5 days to Stan's NCODA maps, to see the hits of his seismic target zones (white circles).

Earthquake lists can viewed at EMCS and at USGS.

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.

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