Bold Prediction

"Former USGS Geologist Jim Berkland predicts major California quake this month...Berkland has been known to predict quakes, his best being the 'World Series' quake in the 80s in the San Francisco Bay area. Berkland even had a bet with a news publication that it would actually happen.

"Berkland is now back with his strongest prediction since the 80s on what he is calling a major earthquake to strike California with a window between March 19th and 26th.

"The geologist says that 'moon proximity' and 'fish deaths and beachings are signs of massive earthquakes.

"On March 19, Earth’s satellite will be at its closest point to our planet in 18 years -- a mere 356,577 kilometers away. The event -- also called a lunar perigee -- was dubbed a "supermoon" by astrologer Richard Nolle back in the 1970s. The term is used to describe a new or full moon at 90% or more of its closest orbit to Earth. Next week, it will be at 100%.

"Nolle is responsible for coining the upcoming event, and he’s also responsible for the latest buzz sweeping the Internet about how the supermoon will affect the planet. On his website Astropro, Nolle warns Earth’s inhabitants to prepare themselves during the “supermoon risk window,” which ranges from March 16 – 22. During this time, Nolle claims there will be an increase in supreme tidal surges, magnitude 5 or higher earthquakes, and even volcanic activity. [...]"

UPDATE: California-so far, so good
