I haven't really watched it all, it's over an hour long. He's saying there's large earthquake potential in the PNW.

He's calling for potential of a quake up to M6.8 on N NW Van Island.

A friend of mine lives near this earthquake. He was rocked out of bed this morning, and then once up, got rocked by another earthquake.

That's what I thought lots of footage coming in on you tube, on another note was just reading about the massive sun flare event from afew day's ago it was massive. :shock: I was wondering what Mr. Gump was talking about solar flares and Aurora Borealis I thought he was into the whiskey again.
