Magnitude-4.1 quake jolts parts of Leyte

A magnitude 4.1 earthquake jolted parts of Leyte on Tuesday night, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.
The tremor struck at a depth of 5 kilometers at 7:20 p.m. around 12 kilometers northeast of Ormoc City.
Intensity IV was recorded in Ormoc City and Albuerra, Leyte.
The earthquake was tectonic in origin, Phivolcs said.
Below we see that today Philippines should receive an more strong earthquake according to the calendar of the region published in this blog. Since this event occurred I see another 4.8R has been reported in Philippines.

Strong earthquake strikes Milford Sound, reportedly felt across country

A powerful earthquake struck Milford Sound late on Monday night, with thousands of Kiwis across the country reporting having felt the shake.

The 5.5 magnitude earthquake hit at a depth of 12km at 10:35pm on Monday night, roughly 15km north of Milford Sound in the South Island.

It has been described as "strong" by GeoNet, with more than 6800 people reporting having felt the quake. Those reports came from as far away as Auckland, but most reports came from the Otago and Queenstown Lakes districts.

The majority of the reports described the quake as "light" however, 109 people said it was strong and 7 people said it was "extreme".

Many went to Twitter to report feeling the shake.

"Everyone in the South ok?" asked one user, while another said: "At first, I thought my vertigo struck again".

"The earth is shaking in Queenstown and the South Island."

Labour MP Clare Curran asked if everything was "all ok" in the area.

4.6R in West of Turkey.


This small but well felt earthquake was reported this morning very near the island of Samos, 30km North. The epicenter can be seen in the map above.
What is interesting for us is that it showed clearly in the calendar of the region and the stresses for the region according to our calculations can be seen from the map below.
The stresses show a point north of Aydin, which is on the exact latitude of the earthquake. The longitude is a degree off. What is also interesting is that we have stresses in Corinthian region and East of Attica. The Aydin point is very close to the exact, so far events.

Fukushima Prefecture is home to the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. It was not immediately clear if the plant was affected.
Japan has been hit by a 6.5 magnitude earthquake just off the coast of Fukushima which could be felt in Tokyo.
The strong quake struck at around 11.30am British time roughly 40km (25 miles) off the east coast of the country and at a depth of approximately 50km.
No tsunami warning was issued, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.
There were no were immediate reports of damage.
Earthquakes are common in Japan, one of the world's most seismically active areas.
The quake occurred at around 11.30am UK time off the northeastern coast of Japan, about 50 kilometers (31 miles) below the seabed. After effects were felt in the districts of Fukushima and Miyagi along with the capital city Tokyo, which is around 160 miles away. Authorities say there is no danger of a tsunami, and there were no immediate reports of casualties.

The city of Fukushima was abandoned in 2011 after an earthquake and tsunami triggered a nuclear meltdown in a local power plant.
  The earthquake and subsequent tsunami left 19,000 people dead or missing and triggered the world's largest nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.
In total 200,000 people were evacuated from the surrounding area with large swathes still classed as uninhabitable due to radiation.

Our published calendar for the region is shown below, where we see that we were expecting strong events yesterday and tomorrow. So it came in between 3rd and 5th peaks see above.

6.8R in AW Sumatra, Indonesia

A powerful earthquake has struck off Indonesia's Java island, prompting a tsunami warning for a neighbouring area, the country's geophysics agency said.
Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency on Friday called on residents on the Banten coast to "immediately evacuate to higher ground".
The 7.4 magnitude quake, as it was initially measured, struck at 7:30pm (12:30 GMT) with an epicentre 147km southwest of Sumur and at a depth of 10km.
Sitting on the geologically active Pacific "Ring of Fire", Indonesia is frequently hit by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties, but strong tremors were felt in the capital, Jakarta, prompting people to run from office buildings.

Below see the recently published calendar for the region clearly showning the expected event.

A 6.8R earthquake was reported this afternoon offshore Chile at the location shown in the above map. Just below is our global calendar showningclearly a peak today. So it was expected globaly. 
As far as Chile is concerned, it is best to look at the last day of July where we see below a fair peak covering today too.
A strong earthquake has hit off the coast of central Chile, though there are no immediate reports of damage or injury.The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 6.8 quake struck at 2:28 p.m. local time (19:28 GMT) Thursday and was centered 59 miles northwest of San Antonio, Chile, in the region of Valparaiso

VANUATU: August 2019 using FDL

Using our published FDL method, we use it as a systematic predicting tool for determining the dates of additional stresses exerted in a region which may lead to earthquakes or not.. 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 Vanuatu Stress Calendar for the period of August 2019.

For this period we can observe that there is a Higher* probability to have an event >4R if the stresses coincide on faults. For example in Vanuatu on  9th,  14th, 17-18th, 25th and 30th  August 2019 are possible and you can see their relative significance from the calendar below:

(Note the scales are not Richeter nor logarithmic they are dates of increased probability).
The probability scales are as follows:
*SMALL (<40%), MEDIUM (40-60%), and HIGH (>60%)
