New Coronal holes formations could be Geoeffective March 19-21
Main areas and mapped regions sit 25-29 Degrees North Latitude, best fit regions are : Gulf Of California, Japan or Southern Iran. Possible magnitude 7.5
San Andreas fault line could also receive an event March 21-22 from trailing coronal hole if no large earthquake has been recorded. potential magnitude is unknown and will depend on proceeding events.
Southern Hemisphere coronal hole situated 18-22 Degrees Latitude could produce a significant earthquake March 19-20, likely areas Vanuatu/Loyalty Islands which are 90% symmetrically mapped. a 7.2 magnitude event is possible
Christchurch – Wellington may receive a 5.5 – 5.8 magnitude earthquake March 19-20 due to a northward moving southern polar coronal hole creating a solar ripple/fracture to 43 degrees Latitude.

Volcano / Earthquake Watch March 14-19
Significant Geomagnetic Storms was observed during March 11, accompanied with powerful solar winds this new geomagnetic activity is expected to be geoeffective March 14-16 and could produce two large 7.5 magnitude earthquakes during this watch.
Northern Hemisphere is the main area of watch, coronal hole targeted sits 29-33 degrees north latitude. main areas at risk for a potential 7.5 magnitude earthquake are : Baha California/LA, Ryukyu Islands-Japan, Southern Iran, less probable are the regions Sichuan China, Northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge or Volcanic activity in the Canary Islands Region(La Palma)
Southern Hemisphere watch has a coronal hole 5-9 degrees South Latitude, possible regions at risk are Banda Sea, Flores Sea or the Kepulauan Babar region-Indonesia
Large coronal hole in the southern hemisphere puts the New Zealand region at risk(41-44degrees) during the March 13-14 time frame if solar winds drop significantly. presently solar winds are at 5.50km/s and if they remain at these levels for 24-36 hours the area should not receive a significant earthquake.

Earthquake Watch thru March 19th, 2011
Astrotometry of recent solar activity indicates a major seismic event is possible in the coming days. A disturbance associated with a moderately sized hole in the solar corona is expected to arrive around March 13th. Seismic adjustments will most likely occur in the hours before an associated increase in solar wind speed or in the wake of the disturbance. The fractal origin of the disturbance may indicate upcoming seismic activity near 40 degrees south latitude. A shock above 6.5 in magnitude is expected, an event over 6.8 in magnitude is considered likely, and an earthquake over 7.8 in magnitude is thought to be possible because of potentially complimentary trajectories of coronal mass ejections.
Regions which could be effected, ordered by matches to known correlative criteria:
Latitude correlation with seismically active regions, form similarity with the disturbance, and recent seismic activity may indicate the south Pacific islands near New Zealand.
Latitude correlation with seismically active regions, and mirrored form similarity with the disturbance, may indicate southern South America.
The location of the event is unknown.
Already elevated solar wind speeds may indicate the event will more likely occur in the later days of the watch. The most likely days for the event are March 13th, 18th and 19th 2011.

Japan Disaster Underscores Need For Preparedness
(The following is the first in a series of articles outlining the risk of a major earthquake in Southern California, the damage it would be expected to cause and how to cope with its aftermath.)
As they watch the morbidly fascinating images of toppled buildings, surging tsunami waves and exploding nuclear plants on their TV screens, mountain residents may naturally be wondering about the prospects for a major quake shaking Southern California.
The answer: A quake of a significant magnitude is highly likely on the San Andreas Fault-whose southern branch passes just a few miles from our mountain communities-within 30 years.
In numerous scientific studies, seismologists agree that a quake along that fault is years overdue, based on historic patterns. When it comes, they say, the consequences will be dire, even in a state that prides itself on being seismically attuned.

Researchers say it’s probably a little bit of both. Plenty of studies have shown that some animals can sense major changes in the weather. Worms, for instance, are known to flee rising groundwater. Birds are known to be sensitive to air pressure changes, and often hunker down before a big storm. And in Florida, researchers studying tagged sharks say they flee to deeper water just before a big hurricane arrives. They also may be sensing the air and water pressure changes caused by the big storm.
“I think these animals are more attuned to their environment than we give them credit for,” Michelle Heupel, a scientist at the Mote Marine Laboratory who worked on the shark study, has told reporters. “When things change, they may not understand why it’s happening, but the change itself may trigger some instinct to move to an area that is safer for them.”
