    I have shared in the past about my dreams matching certain activity. Well … this along with the recent activity in Riverside Ca. is a heavy reminder of 2 specific dreams. I have pointed out two spots off of the Oregon Coast to Earthquake Reports in regards to matching a few other dreams. I continue to be impressed that we are headed for something – especially with this event. I cannot believe that the USGS changed their website – this is really throwing me off a bit and will continue to be an annoyance and hindering my ability to judge things as they continue to happen. I can say however this is impressive activity. I continue to try and curb the temptation to post prematurely … because I have seen the rythmn and understand that only key points will be of importance.

    How often do we see pre-shocks as a warning before a major quake strikes the Pacific Ring of Fire? We see a lot of activity in other Pac ROF areas thanks to Alvin’s posting for us. Things rarely covered on US or Brittish news organizations. Do we know if magnitude 5/6 size quakes are a signal we could be headed for a major magnitude 7/8/9+ in the very near future? Is there a close enough relationship for these quakes to set off an eruption right over Seattle’s head?
