Earthquake Watch Score: 6. Trending Upward. I should not have kept the watch low this morning, when the Mexico quake came on the feed I went immediately to iSWA and saw that the ionosphere had it’s disturbance from 5 to 8 UTC. The watch score should have moved up at that time. The coronal holes, mercury about to conjoin the sun, and the spaceweather all make for the upward trend in watch score.

Earthquake Watch Score: 5. We are definitively between coronal holes, but spaceweather is on the way the full moon is afoot. The watch could even be called a 4 right now, with potential for a quick upswing by morning.

Earthquake Watch Score: 5 to 6. We have had our uptick for this watch, and while there remains a chance for larger quakes, the primary endpoint of this system has been met for this coronal hole.

Earthquake Watch Score: 7 to 8. The uptick may continue or we may have gotten past this one, either way the coronal hole is still earth-facing and the solar wind speed is rising.
