6.2 magnitude earthquake strikes region of Santa Cruz Islands

Santa Cruz 2
January 31, 2013 SANTA CRUZ ISLANDSA deep 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck near the Santa Cruz Islands in the Pacific, about four hours after the region was rattled by a 6.0 magnitude earthquake. The 6.2 magnitude earthquake had a depth of 55.4 km (34.4 miles) with an epicenter of 60 km (37 miles) E of Lata, Solomon Islands. This is the third major earthquake to strike the planet in a 24 hour period. The planet is experiencing a heightened level of seismic activity following a record number of volcanoes across the globe exhibiting activity in the month of January. Today’s earthquake was followed in rapid succession by two 5.6 aftershocks, and a 5.0 magnitude earthquake in southern Sumatra, Indonesia, and a 4.5 aftershock in Atacama, Chile from the 6.8 magnitude earthquake. Seismic tension is also mounting on the Indo-Australian and Sunda plate near the region of Indonesia. –The Extinction Protocol

    My eye was on the earlier activity … I have had a few run in’s with this area and dreams. It is factored in as a rationale. I find it curious that the Pacific Northwest activity is having a seemingly sympathetic/symbiotic relationship going on right now.

    And the hits just keep on coming. I see wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, pestilence. I also see a pattern. And much of the planet is asleep.

    Big ones just keep rolling in there. 6.3, 6.0, 6.2, 6.0 with 10 EQ’s between 5.0 and 5.7 – all since 1/29/2013. It’s like the bottom is falling out and they are going under!
