Yesterday Pakistan and Today Chile both 7 pointers in intensity.
We do have a situation with the sun until tomorrow which is the Coronal Holes that have become earth facing since yesterday. The Coronal holes were powerful and peaked at peak scale intensity yesterday on NASA's SOHO, and SWX remote viewers. Every time we have these coronal holes that become earth facing there's a telemagnetic connection between the sun, and the rest of the planets including earth. WRT earth yesterday and today we had a telemagnetic rating of 8 out of 10 WRT earth therefore the earthquakes. The spot most prone to shift in magnetics would be the you guessed it The PAcific Rim or Mediterranean conus. The earthquake watch continues till tomorrow for the possibility of more earthquakes as the the coronal holes leave the earth facing disk an earth's umbrel field closes or moves away from the telemagnetics of the sun.
Interesting story Rob. It's strange to think that the east coast is actually susceptible to being hit by an earthquake although, the risk is small compared to that of the west coast. Actually in the beginning of my junior year at Penn State I remember my friends telling me they felt an earthquake happen. On August 23, 2011 there was an earthquake centered in Mineral, Va that began 4 miles underground and was felt in State College, Pa. I was riding a bus at the time and didn't feel the ground shaking at all. Seismologists classified the ground-shaking in Mineral at a level 6 or strong. Whereas in State College it was classified at a level 4 or light. Luckily with that low of an intensity there was no structural damage to buildings on campus or in Central Pa.
