This iReport is part of an assignment:
Quake Watch! California, New Zealand & Japan
Lunar events combined with the upcoming galactic alignment , tidal influence , solar winds , magnetic abnormalities , historical anaylisis & precursor pattern recognition may be hinting to an increase in global seismic activity over the next several days but Northern and/or Southern California as with Japan and New Zealand seem to be the points of moderate interest.
The magnitude of the possible event(s) seem to point to a 6.5+ range on the minimal side but could be substantially stronger 7.3-8.1 if it hits in the New Zealand or Japan Regions. If this quake hits on the West Coast it is expected to range from a 6.3-7.4 magnitude.
This watch area should cover the entire Eastern Pacific Rim or the West Coast from Alaska to San Diego and parts or Mexico but also includes Japan and New Zealand.
This is only a watch , the term "Watch" in this case would expect a chance of increased activity, it does not assure that an event or events will occur.
This is not meant to be a prediction but simply a reminder that a little preparation can go a long way. Water, flashlights, canned food, batteries & a radio are not hard to come by before a disaster.
The nature of weather is to change, and the best tip of all is Be Prepared!
