Well nothing major has taken place in the last 6 days since my last update. Obviously there has been quakes but they are at the strongest a 6.0 and although if you are in a quake f that magnitude it can feel very scary and strong unless you are in a very unstable building or right at the epicenter you will likely be ok.
Having experienced a 5.7 here locally in 93′ I can attest that it can be one of the most scary situations in your life. What is only 10-20 seconds can seem like forever.
That said, A/S continue from the 5.2~5.7 quake near Borrego Springs. I spoke to a geologist recently about that area and he said ” Its a very strange area, its the only place that I have ever been where I encounted 3 rattlesnakes in a very short period of time ” He said its a strange location, feels strange I asked, and he was non committal on that point. This will give you an idea of where Borrego Springs is and its location in connection with the Salton Sea.
They have experienced hundreds into or near 2000 a/s since the initial quake. This is one reason I believe that the WCTWC is more accurate in its magnitude reading of 5.7
I have heard some believe that these quakes are tied into volcanic activity that may be building near the Salton Sea. I am not feeling this, no sense of impending volcanism
that I am picking up on. I do not see any reason why I would not feel something specific if that were the case. So I called a friend a former volcanologist with the State of CA and talked to him, he said ” that the signature for volcanic quakes is so different than tectonic quakes that if something like that were happening that there are enough people out there monitoring something would come out about it ” so that pretty much backed up my feelings. He did agree that magma movement can cause small quake activity but again I do not think that is the problem. No one is 100% all the time but based on my past experience I would say this is not the case. Below is a link to more information on Salton Sea and surrounding areas and a small inset of a partial map of Geothermal Activity near the site of these quakes. My best guess is its GEOTHERMAL DRILLING causing the quakes.
Salton Buttes & The Salton Sea Geothermal Field: News, Info … This is the geo thermal activity near The Salton Sea and Landers locations. There is more but this is all I am posting at this time.

CALTECH has posted a video on the Borrego Springs Quake… http://www.scsn.org/index.php/2016/06/10/06102016-m5-2-event-near-borrego-springs/index.html
CALIFORNIA ONLY 7 DAYS OF ACTIVITY
The Geysers * San Francisco * 219 near The Geysers so watch for another 4.0 or greater event inland or offshore N or Central CA.
Long Valley 27 Los Angeles 36
Total Index 1516 * this is very high for a quake count for 7 days
Mammoth Lakes 38 * this has really gone down since the last update… remember they take a day off each day so if it was a very active day you lose that data in the total. Borrego Springs area A/S 899 * this is after they removed the days of the highest A/S activity
Solar flu has been less than usual but I had an attack a few days ago and late last night I picked up another event building. The timeline should be between 7 PM and 7 AM in the morning. Took my Lecithin and Antacids and soda crackers.
Today I am experiencing L side earache, best guess for this would be China, Afghanistan and Pakistan, India, including Nicobar and Andaman Islands.
When the earache is L sided and most of the other symptoms are at the background level, and I am experiencing stomach pain of moderate degree then I watch for events in NEPAL.

I have had headache more than background headache most of the last 12 hours and then I experience a brief spate of back of head, closer to the top on the R side early this AM so I am pretty sure that was a short harmonic tremor episode that proceeded the eruption of the Costa Rica Volcano this morning . I also have had some stomach pains with heart pains. For the most part when I have sharp heart pains and then a shock like effect into the stomach that would be the Landers Quake Zone as it was yesterday with the quake near Yucca Valley and then again late last night with another smaller event this morning at Big Bear. Big Bear has the added symptom of seismic flu along with the stomach pains, low back pains and some heart pains.
I have had constant rib pains since yesterday AM.. most of the pain is on the R side, which is The Domino Islands… we have been getting shocks in the islands on and off but we have also had several larger events. The main areas I am watching are Santa Cruz, Solomon’s, Fiji, and Vanuatu then there is possibility of more quakes in the islands of Admiralty, Loyalty, Marshal, Caroline, Tonga, Marianas, and Samoa.
