    I know a lot of shaking going on along the Antarctica, but I wonder if this could be one of the causes of the icebergs that have been breaking off. Would make sense to me.

    Hi Alvin, how are you my friend? Long time no contact. After nearly 8 days without a MAJOR (6.0 and above) earthquake as is normally the pattern a GREAT (7.0 and above) earthquake struck yesterday (16th July, 2013) at 12.03 A.M. in the South Sandwich Islands Region at a magnitude of 7.3 on the richter scale according to the USGS. Then yesterday evening a MAJOR (6.0 and above) earthquake struck near Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea at a magnitude of 6.0 on the richter scale. Then at 12.37 P.M. today (17th July, 2013) another MAJOR (6.0 and above) earthquake struck in Southern Peru at a magnitude of 6.0 on the richter scale according to the USGS but it was registered as magnitude 6.2 according to Geoscience Australia. This means that there have been no less than 1 GREAT and 2 MAJOR earthquakes in different parts of the planet in only 36 hours. It really looks like we have once again entered a new more active phase of MAJOR/GREAT earthquake activity. What are your thoughts on these present trends? Thanking you for your reply. God bless you now and FOREVER! Cheers!!!

      I think we’re seeing one more manifestation of cyclic unrest within the planet that is oscillating between seismic events and volcanic unrest. What’s particularly interesting is the frequency between these events is diminishing in duration.

      God bless,
      Alvin
