Earthquake Condition Index: C+ to B-
Today we begin adding a new element to quake watches… Dr. U-Yen’s sunspot change. We have the coronal hole earth facing but weak, the next one is not facing earth yet, and as for the sunspots – the official sunspot number is steady today, and the good Dr. looks for rapid change. When these sunspots either turn out of sight or decay rapidly, it will add to the watch.
