Today's 6.6 Mag earthquake in Japan & elsewhereDear Ones:
Yesterday I wrote a 'piece' on tornadoes attendant to energy from the sun reaching earth (as indicated by a rise in the Kp Index (the 'planetary K Index') and causing geomagnetic storm activity. LINK: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2010/11/about-tornadoes-today-by-reverend.html
If you've been following my 'Tutorials', you know by now that energy from the sun can combine with the internal energy of the earth as well as with 'atmospheric energy' to produce: tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, floods, storms, lightning, thunder, auroras and any number of observable earth weather phenomena.
Today, we had a substantial 6.6 magnitude earthquake in Japan after 'yesterday's' USA tornadoes. I thank God that engineers there have been able to design and construct 'earthquake-resistant' structures, since Japan is so seismically active.
The details of this earthquake are as follows.

The two earthquake data links I recommend are:
LINK: http://www.iris.edu/seismon/ for those with a mag >=4.0 and
LINK: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/ for smaller ones.
The 'lesson' for today is this: yesterday's solar energy affecting the earth (as tornadoes across the USA) are TODAY also spawning some seismic activity, such as that in Japan. Fortunately, this 6.6 quake was a 'deep one', at 478.3 km below the earth's surface. As you will learn from my my Free 'Tutorials' (click below), 'the shallower the earthquake, the greater the potential for damage it has, in general'.
It is almost impossible to precisely 'predict' when and where 'geomagnetic storm activity' on earth will manifest itself. USUALLY, it takes 'a few days' for released solar flare energy to actually have an effect on our planet.
When and where this energy 'hits' is an imprecise science, at best. We do well to observe all natural indicators (including animal behavior!) as we monitor our instrumentation.
WE can learn to be on the ALERT when one of our NOAA or NASA sources indicates 'incoming energy' and attempt to anticipate how 'space weather' will be affecting our 'earth weather' via the 'geomagnetic storms' of movie fame...and which really do exist.
Officials rarely want to 'alarm' anyone...even when they are giving the go-ahead to divulge an opinion. Alas, by the time any 'official alerts' get to the public-at-large, it is often 'too late' for the masses to 'take action'.
For this reason, I am encouraging all of you to take the sensible steps necessary to assure yourselves that (as long as you have computer access of some sort) that you are current with weather events. This is especially important if you live in an earthquake-prone area or know someone who does.
You owe it to yourselves and your families to take a few moments with my 'Tutorials. You will quickly see the usefulness of the links and information I provide you with and that they are worth paying attention to.
The 'scientist' in me is fascinated by today's technology even as the 'spiritual me' reaches out to the world in faith.
