4.3 and Swarm Near Where 7.2 Easter Earthquake Occured



Is there going to be a large earthquake soon? This evening we had a small swarm of earthquakes happened around seven PM, and one of them had been 4.3. This is at the area where the epicenter of a 7.2 earthquakes happened on Easter Sunday in 2010. It may well be a mere aftershock series. Or it may be a lead in to a large event. That I cannot say exactly.

One thing that must be noted is that the sun is in a state of very very activity, and the Ionosphere can load up, because the sun ejected material. So I suggest watching the ionosphere closely over the next 24 hours, as well as magnetometer charts as shown here.

The ionosphere is believed by some researchers to have an interplay with earthquake events. In other words there is a possible correlation between ionosphere behavior and earthquakes.

Here's a link to NOAA's space weather carts and magnetometer chart

Here's a link to the USGS and the 4.3 quake tonight: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Quakes/ci11047933.html

Covington Flat Volcano has Pair of Earthquakes


It should be noted that Covington flat volcano has had a pair of light earthquakes today. One is located in the area where there is believed a magma chamber. This deserves to be watched. Covington flat volcano is located just south of Black Rock camp ground of the Joshua Tree National Park, and south of the town of Yucca Valley, Calif.
