David Nabhan was earthquake co-ordinator for the Los Angeles Independent School District for 15 years, and he says that we’re missing the boat on earthquake prediction. Here he outlines his ideas about how we can go about identifying higher probability times and dates when earthquakes are more likely. He is not able to identify definite dates, but his research does suggest that it’s possible to say that there is a higher probability of quakes on certain days when there are near-sygyzy and near-perigee events. (He explains on the show what these are.) The statistics show that the effect is stronger on the US west coast, possibly because of the structure of its fault lines, and people in this area should be especially aware of these events, the next one of which is coming up on October 26. UPDATE: David Nabhan will be on Sonoma County KSRO News at 7:15 AM Friday, October 28, 2011 to discuss the earthquake swarm that took place on October 26. To listen, click here.
We are not interested in making claims that the sky is falling on Dreamland, but David Nabham is a rational man who has studied earthquakes seriously, and has intelligent, useful information to offer.

I check the IRIS seismic
I check the IRIS seismic monitor daily. We had an unusually strong (4.8) quake in Texas a few days ago just south of San Antonio. My boyfriend lives in South Austin and he felt it on the third floor of his apartment building. In checking the IRIS monitor that day, I noted that there had been a 4.4 quake in Oklahoma only 2 days earlier.
When the quake hit Washington recently, an earthquake in Colorado was fairly overlooked by the media—it occurred on the same day.
It’s not unusual to see earthquakes almost daily on the West Coast; however, when earthquakes occur in the middle of the country and towards the east coast, and also cluster either on the same day, or within days of each other, it gives one pause…
