Haiti, Japan, and now Chile... who will be next?

6 Answers
As many of you probably heard, a massive earthquake near the city of Concepcion, Chile happened on February 27th. Early reports say 8.8, but that could change in future reports. Also, a tsunami could be as large as 9 feet tall. The day before, 53 miles from Okinawa, Japan there was a 7.0 earthquake. Of course, we all know about Haiti's tragedy. These aren't the same tectonic plates, as shown on this site, although I suppose they could be related: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7a/Tectonic_plates-fr. png So, the trillion dollar question would be where will the next earthquake be? Of course, I know no one can answer this question with proof based on facts, but do you think your city could be next?

All plates are somewhat affected when there is a shaker which is why quakes can't be predicted. Haiti is not included in the Pacific Rim of Fire but Chile is. Considering that the San Andreas fault was involved in the Chilean quake and the depth causing magnitude, I wouldn't invest in any property in Mexico or southern California for awhile but then I could have sworn Clinton would have been impeached.

No one said near Tijuana, Mexico, so I'll keep this question open (Southern California or Mexico was close to being correct, but I think that wasn't specific enough)...

As many of you now know, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck at 3:40 p.m. Sunday PST at about 110 miles southeast of Tijuana, Mexico.

The border city of Mexicali, in Baja California was hit the hardest.

Unfortunately 2 people have died and 233 injured (as of writing this post), but that is a lot less than the other impacts of the earthquakes that have recently happened.

So, I continue to ask the question, who will be next? This is a bit scary to me as I live along the same plate as this earthquake, and my limited knowledge of plate tectonics knows that the plates will shift down the line, meaning there will probably be an earthquake next on the plate north of the one near Tijuana. This could be incorrect, and please tell me if that's the case.

Also, this should be a reminder to anyone who lives in a place that could have an earthquake to be prepared and plan ahead where you will go during an earthquake (front doorway, for example), where you will meet with loved ones or friends if you become separated, and what type of provisions you will have - food, water, blankets, if the worst occurs.

The scary thing about all of this is that it's not only Chile and the surrounding areas that are being affected by this. Places as far as Russia and New Zealand have tsunami warnings, and soon Hawaii will be hit by one. People have had plenty of warning there, and evacuations have been issued.

Finally, the last that I heard, the West Coast of the United States was under tsunami advisory - this doesn't necessarily mean one will reach there, but those residents should be listening to news reports to see if it escalates to a tsunami warning.

Well, in this case, the tsunami for Hawaii was no where near what they suspected it would be. I too had to sit and wonder where the next place would be. It's like things are just being set off one after the other. Charleston, SC sits on a line but with no earthquake since the 1800's. We just do not know where the next one will be. All we can do is be prepared just like we are for hurricanes here and hope and pray we are not it. Good luck and best wishes.

Look up "polar shift" and how it relates to the Maya date of 2012.
Also look up Terence McKenna and his Novelty theory and Time Wave Zero Point of the ancient Chinese I Ching relating to 2012.

Could be in India next.
