A mag 6.0 - 174km N of Arawa, Papua New Guinea is the 6th major quake of July, all 6 have occurred around the Pacific Ring Of Fire including the magnitude 7.1 and 6.4 in Southern California.

Meanwhile, what is being called "swarmageddon" by the locals, the number of aftershocks since the powerful mag 7.1 quake has now reached almost 11,000, however, the swarm in the last 24 hours is showing signs of reduction with a total of 1,600, see screenshot above.

The total number of major quakes (mag 6+) so far this year is an impressive 83, the same period in 2018 delivered just 46 and the same period in 2017 delivered 49, 2016: 75, 2015: 79, 2014: 98, 2013: 77, 2012: 74, 2011: 135, which of course was the year of the Fukushima disaster Japan which suffered more than 70 mag 6+ aftershocks.

USGS reports of not yet occurred aftershocks in CA,;
the unfounded LA Times' report of a slow down of the earth quake frequency in CA;
the BBC News live report about the supposedly already occurred collapse of the still standing 3rd building (which wasn't hit by a plane) on September 11, (the BBC reporter announced that the collapse had occurred while standing in front of the still completely intact steel frame building, that, soon after it's prematurely reported collapse supposedly collapsed into itself due to office furniture fires);
frequent detailed official predictions of the migration patterns of storm system while we can see official photos with abnormal unnatural cloud formations,...

Are these all signs of honest mistakes, incompetence, sloppiness, amazing premonitions, most accurate weather predictions (if needed, b/c many times we are very 'surprised' by things like snow in deserts or during heat waves, 6ft accumulations of golf ball-sized hail after a heat wave, ice disks or ice balls or frozen waves in above freezing temperatures in e.g., the great lakes or the Boston harbor), coincidences, or what? And what about 'The Weather as Force Multiplier - Owning the Weather by 2025' (US Air Force) - Are they on time?

Whatever, we're living in a strange human-dominated World.
