Greece: January 2018 --- FDL Method

Based on our published FDL research techniques, we here apply them as a systematic predicting tool for determining the dates of earthquakes. Our methods are experimental and we test them in real time.
Please note the disclaimer at the end. We expect an accuracy for the prediction of +-1 day from the dates shown in the charts.

In the following diagram we can see Greece Earthquake Predictions for the period of January 2018.

For this period we observe that there is a High* probability to have an earthquake in Greece on January 22nd 24th and 30th, other dates are possible and you can see their relative significance from the calendar below:

The probability scales are as follows:
*SMALL (<40%), MEDIUM (40-60%), and HIGH (>60%)

Global: January 2018.

Based on our published reseach technique, we here apply it as a systematic predicting tool for determining the dates of earthquakes.
In the following diagram we can see Global Earthquake predictions for January 2018. This means earthquakes of >= 6R somewhere in the world. No specific location. ....Note that you should also cross check this chart with our LOCAL PREDICTIONS if you wish to home in further on the earthquake location. Furthermore you also must consider the planetary alignment posts we do We do many countries and if there is enough requests we may do others too.   Finally we will also issue soon the Monthly EarthquakePrediction Bulletin.
For this period with this method we observe that there is a HIGH* probability to have an earthquake >= 6R somewhere in the world on 19th, 23rd, 29th and 31st January 2018  and smaller in other dates as shown below:  (Note the scales are not Richeter nor logarithmic). Finally please read our disclaimer at the end of this post. Thank you.

Peru earthquake: Powerful magnitude 7.1 tremor kills one and leaves dozens injured

A powerful magnitude 7.1 earthquake has struck the coast of southern Peru, leaving one person dead and several dozen injured.
Authorities rolled back earlier statements saying a second person had died and 17 people were missing in a mine, suggesting the human toll of the quake may not be as drastic as previously feared.
Homes and roads collapsed and several municipalities were left without electricity. Residents of
Lomas, a coastal town, were evacuated after feeling an aftershock.
One 55-year-old man died in the town of Yauca after being crushed by a rock, Yamila Osorio, governor of Arequipa, said on Twitter.
Jorge Chavez, chief of Peru's Civil Defense Institute, told local radio station RPP that 65 people were injured but withdrew his earlier statement that a second person had died in the town of Bella Union.
"The victim reportedly found in Bella Union has not been confirmed," Mr Chavez said. "Officially, we only have one death."
Damage to roads was impeding help from arriving to the most-affected zones, which are mainly rural and remote, Mr Chavez added. Aid workers and supplies would be flown in from nearby cities, he said.
The quake hit offshore at 4:18am local time (9.18am GMT) at a depth of around 22.4 miles (36 km), the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.
Its epicentre was in the Pacific Ocean 25 miles (40km) from the town of Acari.
Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, the President of Peru, said on Twitter he was in route to the affected region to "verify the magnitude of the damage and send the needed humanitarian aid."
Abel Salinas Rivas, the Health Minister, told RPP rescue workers spoke with representatives of the informal Estrella mine and confirmed no one was missing from there. Mr Rivas had said earlier 17 people were missing after the mine east of Chala suffered damages following the quake.
The US Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre initially warned "hazardous tsunami waves are forecast for some coasts" and larger-than-normal waves could hit Peru and Chile.
But the centre then said in a later statement "there is no longer a tsunami threat from this earthquake" and the centre hadn't observed any tsunami waves.
The quake was also felt in northern Chile, Peru's southern neighbour.
Chile's National Emergency offices said there were no reports of injuries, damage to infrastructure, or interruption of basic services.
Earthquakes are common in Peru, but many homes are built with precarious materials unable to withstand them.
In 2007 an earthquake killed hundreds in the region of Ica.

8 earthquakes strike along Iran-Iraq border, rattle Baghdad

A series of eight earthquakes hit the Iran-Iraq border area and rattled even Baghdad and parts of the Iraqi countryside on Thursday, apparently aftershocks of a temblor in November that killed over 530 people. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey said seven of the quakes struck near the Iraqi city of Mandali and an eighth struck near Mehran in western Iran. All struck within an hour of each other, beginning at 0659 GMT.
Seven had a preliminary magnitude of at least 5, while the eighth earthquake was a magnitude 4. Earthquakes of magnitude 5 and up to 5.9 are classified as moderate.
Iranian authorities offered similar figures for the earthquakes on state television. All the information could change as scientists examine the data.
Iranian state television said online that people rushed into the streets as the temblors hit. In Baghdad, people felt a quake shake the Iraqi capital, followed by what felt like aftershocks.
All the earthquakes struck at a depth of 10 kilometers (6 miles), according to the USGS. Earthquakes at magnitude 5 can cause considerable damage. The temblors also all were very shallow, which causes more ground shaking and potential damage, particularly in places without strict building codes.
In November, a major 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the same region, killing over 530 people and injuring thousands in Iran alone. In Iraq, nine people were killed and 550 were injured, all in the country's northern Kurdish region, according to the United Nations.
Randy Baldwin, a geophysicist with the USGS' National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colorado, said the earthquakes all appeared to be aftershocks from the November temblor.
The area is located in the sparsely populated and remote Zagros Mountains that divide Iraq and Iran and is home to many shallow faults, he said.
"It's ongoing activity there," Baldwin told The Associated Press. "If there was a stressed fault that's ready to move, they happen like that until the stresses are relieved, so it's not too unusual."
Iran sits on major fault lines and is prone to near-daily earthquakes. In 2003, a 6.6 magnitude quake flattened the historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people.

7.6R North of Honduras.

A powerful 7.6R North of Honduras has been reported this morniong by EMSC.  The event was 192km from Barra Patuca.
One of the strongest earthquakes to hit the Caribbean in modern times struck off the coast of Honduras on Tuesday night, shaking the mainland and setting off tsunami warnings that were cancelled about an hour later.
There were no early reports of serious damage or casualties on land after the quake struck shortly before 10pm EST. Officials in Honduras said shaking was registered across much of the nation and there were some reports of cracks in homes in Colon and Atlantida provinces along the northern coast and Olancho in eastern Honduras.
Tsunami centres issued advisories and warnings for Puerto Rico, the Cayman Islands, Cuba, Jamaica and other Caribbean islands as well as on the coasts of Mexico and Central America, cautioning that sea levels could rise from a foot to 3 feet (0.3 to 1 metre) above normal, but no tsunami materialised.
The US Geological Survey measured the quake at a preliminary magnitude of 7.6. The tremor struck in the sea about 125 miles (202 kilometres) north-northeast of Barra Patuca, Honduras, and 188 miles (303 kilometres) southwest of George Town, Cayman Islands. The tremor occurred about 6 miles (10 kilometres) below the surface.
