Remember – the notes below are just feelings, not exact predictions of definite events.
On another site I mentioned my feeling for a region which may suffer considerable damage to homes/buildings due to an earthquake. This region was close to a Middle East border with China. 24 hours later such a region (SW China) had an M5+ which levelled hundreds of homes.
The landslips, ground drops (including sinkholes), rivers/waterways disappearing – some rising too, mass fish/sea-life die off, which I had strong feelings for, all occurred as well. This also included excessive tides and sea inundation.
Florida (United States) is one region which has regularly ‘stuck’ with me (though I haven’t always mentioned it) for serious issues with ‘ground-drop’. Sadly, as we all saw in the news, a man died when he was consumed by a sinkhole which appeared under his house.
The people of Florida are well aware of the problems with such and it must be unnerving not knowing where the ground is next going to give way. My thoughts are with you.
Many other regions are being disturbed with sinkholes and landslips too. Though it is an interesting phenomenon, it is also a disturbing one.
A sharper awareness now surrounds meteorites and asteroids. Many are quietly ‘watching’ the skies for more visiting rocks. Let’s hope we don’t see another shock like the one in Russia and Cuba recently. Other regions have experienced these disturbances, by varying degrees too.
March may also be highlighted with other meteorite disturbances, some by surprise – with little (some with no) warning. I don’t necessarily mean catastrophic events, but there may be displays which will continue to capture the imagination of many and bother some.
More booms, hums and light flashes (not related to lightning) may be experienced this month.
Also – an obscure thought – methods of using salt to reduce ice and snow hazards on roadways (particularly near bridges) may need to be reviewed. Metal erosion from this method may be causing damage to structures and salinizing nearby land. I am not a scientist – so I am no expert on this idea.
Much of this post is repeated from the February ‘feelings’ post. But I have added extra locations, and removed some where I feel may not experience tremors.
I am maintaining many of my feelings for March from the February post as those feelings are continuing.
I may modify this post soon. Any changes will be dated/time.
Some words that came to mind recently as I was thinking about March are – ‘a quiet time may be ended by a sudden jolt. A moment of tranquillity may be disturbed suddenly and/or a community, already and quietly on tender-hooks, may experience a renewed or new and bigger issue to deal with’. This is very generalized I know, but the feeling lurks.
Victoria – S/E M2(++?), far N/E M2(++?)(maybe offshore), NW M2(+?)
Outside ‘chance’ – Dandenong, Bendigo, Traralgon, between Bunyip State Park and (east to) Mount Baw Baw, maybe an M2+(+?). A town/suburb with starting with ‘C’ is sticking with me a little – not sure which one yet. Portland is niggling a bit too (not the people – the region ;)
Tasmania – N/E and maybe N/W coast M2+(+?). East of Hobart? and/or NE of Hobart (coast)M2=(+?) . SSW of Hobart (at sea) M2(++?). Maybe N or NE of Burnie M2(++?).

Queensland – at the moment, I am only drawn to the Coral Sea and the northern coast of Queensland.
Northern Territory – SW of Alice Springs M2(+?) + near Tarrabool Lake (ENE of central NT) M2(?) + maybe NW or N of Darwin M2(+?)(possibly off coast)
Western Australia – (repeat) maybe SW or west of Margaret River (coast or off coast) M2(+?) + maybe west of Perth (coast or off coast) M2(+?) + (inland) east, NE and SE of Perth M2(?) + Lake Nabberu region (west of the Gibson Desert Nature Reserve) M2(?) + also maybe west of Carnarvon and Exmouth (offshore – Indian Ocean)

***All of the above regions (on OR near to them) may feel tremors varying from M2 to M2+(+?). But some may only feel a mild tremor. Only a couple of the regions may feel larger tremors.
South Island – west of Auckland Island M3(?) This island is south of the Sth. Island.
Christchurch may feel a few rumbles, maybe from M2 to maybe an M3(+?)
South west of the SW point of the South Island (offshore) may feel an M2+(+?)
Vancouver region may feel an M2, and maybe an M3+(+?) + maybe south of Victoria (perhaps near the waterway) M2(++?) and the Queen Charlotte Islands.
British Columbia – north/central, towards border with NWT’s M2+(+?) and south.
The North Western Territory may come up with an M2+(++?)
Alberta, near Calgary? M2(?) + maybe northern Saskatchewan + maybe lower Ontario/Quebec.
Near or WSW of Rimouski (waterway) + Gulf of St. Lawrence M3?
I am again being drawn to the North Western Passages/top of Hudson Bay maybe an M3(+)? And the southern and northern Yukon for M2+(+?). Winnipeg, Nova Scotia Montreal and New Foundland are niggling at me a bit.
ALASKA and the ALEUTIAN ISLANDS (repeat) – the Gulf of Alaska is sticking with me for maybe an M3(+?).
There may be further tremors travelling north inland M2’s, ?M3 and maybe an M2+ further north again towards the top coast. Along the Aleutians maybe M2’s, M3 and maybe an M3+(+?). Towards the western ‘end’, maybe an M3+(+?).
NORTH AMERICA –
Washington – near Seattle and the NW coast, maybe M2+ and/or M3(+?)
Oregon – west of Portland, near Bend, near Klamath Falls, west of Roseburg (off shore), near border with Idaho.
California – west of Eureka, San Francisco, near Redding, Salinas/Santa Cruz, near Fresno, Ridgecrest, Bakersfield, Yucca Valley, El Centro, Santa Rosa, Salton Sea, Yosemite and Kings Canyon NP’s, Los Angeles/Thousand Oaks, Riverside (east of LA), Red Bluff, Fort Bragg and Grants Pass. These regions and surrounds may feel M2’s, M3’s and M3+(+?).

The above US states/regions may only be M2’s and/or M2+’s, with a couple of M3+(+?)’s. I get a mild feeling that an eastern US region may come up with an M4+?
CENTRAL AMERICA (repeat)
The Gulf of California (top end and near lower end, and west of the ‘peninsula’) may come up with perhaps M3++(?)’s again.
Mexico – Guadalajara, Mexico City, west of Manzanillo, south of Oaxaca.
And down the west coast of the rest of Central America, maybe M3+(+?)’s. Including Panama.
SOUTH AMERICA (repeat)
Including Easter Island and the Galapagos Islands, maybe M3+(+?)’s
Venezuela, central/west Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Belize (M2?), Trinidad and Tobago, Rio Grande do Norte may come up with moderate quakes. There may be a larger quake on the west coast, maybe along the northern and central west coast.
HAWAII – will continue to experience sporadic M1’s, M2’s and maybe an M3+?
A volcano may become more greatly watched and monitored more closely.
Water disturbances (levels) may be an issue on one or two occasions. This may emanate from the west and NE.
PACIFIC ISLANDS – Many of the Pacific Islands may continue to experience sporadic and the odd ‘clusters’ of M3+(+?)’s. The Kermadec Islands are seemingly constantly rumbling and may continue to do so. There may be a larger quake here – maybe an M5+
Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Vanuatu, near New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna, and surrounding islands, may experience the larger tremors on or near their lands. I get a feeling that there may be some issue with sea level/disturbance involving one or more of the islands on the right side of this cluster of islands. I feel that somewhere in the western side of the Pacific, that an underwater volcano mound may become more evident.
Santa Cruz Islands may sporadically come up with M4(+?)’s again. A new cluster of M5’s may occur on a couple of occasions. There may be a sea level disturbance with a larger quake?
CHINA – far western, NW, central south, SW, NE, SE near Taiwan, and maybe towards Beijing (general wide area/region) may experience tremors from M2 to M3+(+?).
The border of China and Vietnam is sticking with me a little for maybe an M3+(+?).
Movements of M3+(?) may continue to occur for the east of Honshu, Fukushima, Tokyo, Sendai, Morioka and particularly Hokkaido.
Of the southern end of Japan, Kagoshima (maybe near the East China Sea) and on/near the west coast, Sea of Japan, maybe near Kanazawa, may experience an M3(+?).
Mount Fuji may continue to be active and cause ground movements. This volcano may become problematic for nearby regions and air traffic. Water/streams/small rivers may be noticeably affected (current or direction of flow???).
