A powerful earthquake in the Gulf of California: trouble in Mexico and the United States. / August 7, 2009 /

A powerful earthquake of magnitude 6.9 occurred on Aug. 3, 2009 in the Gulf of California. Shocks were felt not only in coastal Mexico, but also in U.S. cities, away from the coast (San Diego, Phoenix, Los Angeles). The victims, destruction and there was no tsunami.

Central American and the California earthquake zone specialists track from mid-June. Based on the analysis of derived geophysical data Seysmosovete Russia has announced a forecast of a possible strong earthquake in the area until July 7th, 2009 forecast disappointed. But together, further signs of the forecast has been prolonged until 1 August ( 2 days) with the possible magnitude M7.0 + (message of 08.07.2009). The main arguments in favor of such a decision were seysmoindikatory cloud over the surrounding areas of Sumatra — Java and centners. America — Gulf of California (Appendix 2), anomalies of protons and elektrotelluriki, as well as the meridian ZMT start as a result of a strong geomagnetic storm 22.07.2009. The set of power tubes in an Integrated meridian 75/-105 degrees offered a potential date ZMT 5 or 12.08.2009 ( 2 days). An earthquake with M6.9 occurred 03.08.2009 at alleged potential zone.

There remains a strong threat in the ZMT Sumatrano-Yavan zone up to 15.08.2009, with a magnitude of M6.6 +. About «signal» OS-s on Sumatra — Yavoy (Annex 3). Not be ruled a powerful eruption of the volcano Krakatau, which in late July showed an unexpected activity.
