June 15th, 2013 (InsideCostaRica.com) After an earthquake measuring 6.6 on the Richter scale off the Pacific coast of Nicaragua on Saturday, both Nicaragua and other Central American countries were rocked by several smaller temblors and aftershocks.

 

The 6.6 quake struck off Nicaragua’s central Pacific coast at 11:35am local time, at a depth of 10 kilometers.

 

Nicaraguan authorities said they do not have any reports of serious injuries or damages, though reports exist of minor damages to structures and cracks in the walls of homes.  In addition, local reports said that one of the domes of the Church of San Juan, located in the historic city of León, had suffered structural damage.

 

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, based in Hawaii, had issued a precautionary tsunami warning for Nicaragua after the quake, which struck 58 kilometers east of Masachapa on Nicaragua’s Pacific coast.

 

Costa Rican authorities reported a magnitude 4.9 earthquake at nearly the same moment in Sardinal de Carillo, Guanacaste, near the international airport located in Liberia and the popular tourist destination, Playas del Coco.  A series of three aftershocks were reported after that event, though no reports of injuries or damage in Costa Rica have yet been reported.

 

In Nicaragua, authorities reported six aftershocks, the last at 1:40pm local time on Saturday, measuring 4.9 magnitude.

 

Meanwhile, a series of other moderate earthquakes struck other Central American countries, according to reports and civil authorities, including a 4.8 magnitude in Guatemala and a magnitude 5.0 in El Salvador.

      “A). … 1). Regular qualitative predictions are US for “normal” catastrophic, violent AGW ecosystems (quakes to CMEs to toxic feticide) from the rotten EssoKochFox’s and their willing accomplices. Sunspots should continue to be blasted off of the nearside and with more being ripped out of the farside of the Sun to produce more CMEs, flares, and wind hitting us with the power of M1 – X3. More intense AGW quakes should hit the North Pacific while damages and injures should sweep across Central Asia. Hurricane ecosystems should blossom all over the planet during the next 2-weeks as one measure of AGW glacial melt over the past 15 years. With condolences to my neighbors’ extreme losses, due to the tip of the AGW iceberg seen with 2 toxic chem-plants exploding in Louisiana against extremist GOP Jindal’s orders, this is 1st of 5 weeks under the 61st DEQ-ORM-Esso-Kill-the-Planet Model (6/16 – 22/13). This is 1st of 4 weeks under the 22nd KochEssoFoxrush Exploding AGW Quake Cyst Model (6/16 – 22/13). This is the 1st of 4 weeks in the 44th WRECK of Pro-life Model (6/16 – 22/13). This is the 2nd of 3 weeks in the 35th Simon Bolivar Model (6/8 – 15/13).


      B). Including the odd chance of JJBAL Fireballs with each prediction, the specifics of the Giulaino – Gansu Model (6/16 – 22/13) of extreme AGW earthquake warnings (n= 24) among tectonic energy lines with individual predictions for regions (magnitude in Richters) are:

This has been updated as of 6/15/13 to reflect incoming empirical (~90%) reports and theoretical modeling (~5%). … A correct for any of these concurrent earthquake models is anything within 0.5 Richters below given prediction and anything above the prediction for the region (within 100 miles, and additional 50 miles if people felt it). On the open ocean with or without island(s), the preceding intensities also apply with the region being expanded to 400 miles to be correct to cover vagaries of reporting potentially overlapping faults, geographical entities, and scientists. …

        Northern Iran was a continuing significant AGW quake prediction in the region of the Persian – Band Aceh – Bhamo Model. It was in the “northern Iran (8+) – Armenia (7+)” region under 6/16 – 22/13, caused panic and damage, in the 2nd week of the standard 2-weeks model, and 5th week of the previous 8-weeks model. “M 4.3 and a depth of 12 km is given by Iranian Seismological Agency. The quake caused damage in 10 villages close to the epicenter, which lies in West Azerbaijan region near the town Khoj. 128 buildings were damaged, 40 of them severely, where approx. 50 percent of the building was damaged. 630 people were replaced.

        There was 1 correct AGW quake prediction along with 6 correct AGW volcano predictions along with the fireballs and solar flares.

        Yukon was a correct AGW quake prediction. It was in the “44th WRECK of Pro-life Model (6/16 – 22/13) … Yukon (5+)” region, exceeded the 4.5 Richter minimum, the epicenter was in the Northwest Territories within 100 miles of Yukon, and in the 4th week of the 4 weeks in the 44th WRECK of Pro-life Model (6/16 – 22/13).

        Bringing to a total of 6 correct (Karymsky, Kizimen, Tolbachik, and Santa María) of 19 predicted AGW volcanic regions with 6 correct of 18 reported, under 6/16 – 22/13 for the 4 weeks it took wait for all of the reports to come in to the website.
