Major Global Unrest Underway


10/26/2015 — Large M7.5 earthquake strikes Afghanistan — Major Global Unrest Underway

by Michael Janitch
After weeks with no large earthquake activity, this current week has proved to be a real jolt back into reality -- first a M7.2 earthquake struck the West Pacific, now a M7.5 earthquake strikes the mideast in Afghanistan.
m7.5 earthquake oct 26 2015
Just as expected, yesterday (October 25) a very deep earthquake occurred below the Pacific plate, which led me to issue a warning for a coming large earthquake measuring at least TWO magnitudes higher than the deep event, which was a deep M5.2.
We were watching for a M7.2 or greater to strike West / Northwest of the deep earthquake.  Now a M7.5 struck West / Northwest within 1 day of the deep earthquake event.
See my post on the deep event here:
This new large earthquake location in Afghanistan, near the India border, was discussed in the most recent earthquake forecast, see the earthquake forecast video here:
