Tropical Storm Nock-ten area is looking vulnerable for a major quake in the coming days
With parts of a large coronal hole on the Sun still facing the earth and now a tropical storm in the area I would say the area above (circled) will be vulnerable for major quakes in the coming days.
The area has already suffered 9 major quakes this month and is highly unstable with hundreds of aftershocks.
This current coronal hole is something special, apart from its size, it is enormous, it is a region in the sun's atmosphere where the magnetic field opens up and allows solar wind to escape which when facing the Earth this wind hits our magnetosphere at tremendous speed, " We've actually seen this coronal hole before, probably three times before starting in September. It is rotating around with the sun, strobing Earth like a lighthouse every ~27 days. The last two times we experienced its solar wind (Oct. 25-28 and Nov. 23-26)
In September this current coronal hole faced the Earth for the first time resulting 8 major quakes in 8 days, later in Oct it reappeared causing another 8 major quakes, then again in Nov with another 9 major quakes with 4 major quakes in one day, in December it is a similar story with 7 major quakes hitting our planet in the last 4 days and with the massive coronal hole still facing the Earth we will be on for more!
Christmas solar storm to batter Earth as flare blasts from massive hole in the sun
EARTH is being blasted by a flare soaring from a hole in the sun’s atmosphere – and it’s bringing huge geomagnetic storms with it.
The super-fast stream of solar wind hit the Earth’s magnetic field just in time for the winter solstice on Wednesday.
And it’s whipped up a “moderately” strong geomagnetic storm that could last for several days, according to the US’ National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Geomagnetic storms are behind the awe-inspiring natural phenomenon the Northern Lights.
