Earthquake Condition Index: B+
Those conjunction snuck up on us… myself included, especially because most are not geocentric. The solar wind jolts are, admittedly, curious. It may be the lack of speed, but these shocks should still be doing more to our shield. In 3 years of earthquake prediction I have never used such shocks before… never seen them, but then again… “nobody alive has ever seen such a weak solar cycle” -A. Jaramillo (Solar Scientist, Montana)

…what can I say, gotta admit it when we find something new… even if it WAS INDEED RIGHT UNDER MY NOSE. David Hyde, of the Blog is helping to piece this together.

We will call a localized watch of A- for the Southwest Pacific based on potential foreshock signatures.
