I abbreviated the title to shorten the formal name of the Official Prediction I'm discussing in todays paper. That can be viewed at And that bears the entire Official Name there, too.

I must note that I'm entirely leaving out a lot of other good correlations with big windstorms and some other notable California Earthquakes along with just a general discussion of this correlation I've been using around the world for going on 25 years now. Here I am focusing on JUST the correlation with Typhoons that have traveled the East China Sea and made Major Landfalls at the South of Japan Region especially but not limited to striking Nagasaki because they also scrape the Eastern Coastal Regions more towards Tokyo there. It occurred to me in the course of preparing todays submission that THIS CORRELATION alone, especially if this one hits on time, might be of some value in and of itself towards ultimately warning people of California a Major Earthquake or earthquake in general is heading for them and might shake there.

First and possibly foremost of additions I wish to discuss today is the correlation between the Landfall of Typhoon Roke at South of Japan at or about 12:01am Central Time on September 21, 2011, and the "Offshore Oregon" Earthquake of 5.3 although it was originally a 5.8 Downgraded, shook on Oct. 12 at 10:13pm Central Time or 21 Days, 22 Hours, 12 Minutes after that landfall at Japan. Conversely the Landfall of Typhoon Nanmadol was at 23:30pm UTC on July 3, 2017 or 6:30pm Central Time at South of Japan. THEREFORE on this bit of new research I have now added 21 days, 22 hours, and 12 Minutes, and if I did all that math correctly it may equal or at best note the upcoming date of July 25th at 4:42pm Central Time, or 2:42pm Pacific Time would be the date the Offshore Coos Bay Earthquake struck overlaid with this present Official Prediction, and a wait and see if this new research item contributes substantially towards predicting California Earthquakes such as this one in the future.

Landfall of Typhoon Tokage with the highest windspeed reported at Nagasaki of 140 Miles Per Hour at around Noon Central Standard Time USA on October 19, 2004 preceded a 3.2 Mt. Rainier Earthquake of November 7, 2004 by 17 days, and 19 hours and again correlating that with my current prediction with landfall of Typhoon Nanmadol also at South of Japan would theoretically bring you out at 5:30pm Friday Afternoon, July 21, 2017 or later today as I'm writing this!!! Also another potentially useful calculation for California in the future. . . if and when this upcoming one strikes!!!

Finally, I believe I mentioned the 4.2 Oakland Earthquake that shook the USGS offices on Clay Street in Oakland and I located Typhoon Man-Yi landfall around July 13, 2007 and that earthquake on July 20, 2007, therefore this correlation comes in at just around 7 days and said date would have already passed for our present Official Prediction correlation back on July 10, 2017. I assert on this matter that it was however an identical correlation in every way and have been thanked by random people in the San Francisco area for letting them know ahead of time. . . that an earthquake was coming!!! Albeit at Day 7, still well within the words of Seismologist Richard Allen formerly Wisconsin, today UC Berkeley who once told me, "IF this earthquake energy DOES travel along the lines as you explain/say, then there WILL NOT ever be an exact number of days because the earthquake is ultimately due to movement of large masses of rock (Earth) and will not be moving on an exact schedule of days" or something to that effect. Suggesting that I've found a general number of days it takes the vast majority of these to shake. . . but in all likelihood will probably never be able to give an exact date for the resultant earthquake in the manner as I'm currently doing for the purpose of demonstrating how close this correlation has been working for me as I believe these examples show.

This alert in and of itself while covering all the above days and dates I have discussed in this paper, the alert still must be considered to be continuing until August 15, 2017 and the earthquakes which may be considered to be the result of that landfall of Tropical Storm/Typhoon Nanmadol could go on into Early to Mid-September 2017. However in general Japan to California Correlations normally run the number of days discussed herein today. Thank-You Again For Reading!!!

Wednesday, July 12, 2017


Today I must submit a new “Official Prediction” due to the landfall on July 3, 2017 of Tropical Storm Nanmadol at the South of Japan near Nagasaki. This big windstorm has also been called a Typhoon in at least one writing although not sure which agency might have different numbers for a Tropical Storm or Typhoon. This particular windstorm had wind speeds recorded as high as 95 Miles Per Hour and it’s possible there might have been higher speed gusts since I never figured out if that highest speed was a gust or a basic recorded wind speed. In all events the biggest possible gust even with a 95 mph wind speed would be just over a hundred and we would still be looking at about the same effect on the Pacific Tectonic Plate such as we are now watching for as a result of this landfall.

Nominally I generally prefer to give a window of dates when it is the most likely an earthquake will follow such a big landfall and in that case this window would run fully out more towards the end of August and for example a popular day for such resultants to strike or Day 43 will not come until August 15, 2017. I’m saying July 23, 2017 due to the fact that I had what could be my most recent other similar event back in 2014 when I did an actual “Quake Chase” to Oakland/Frisco on Amtrak knowing there was a Major Earthquake heading for that city and possibly coinciding with a Supermoon of August 10, 2014 and this earthquake then struck instead at Napa, California after I had caught my train home it struck during the following NEW MOON on August 24, 2014. Therefore I’ll make use of that experience here and now by putting this newest prognostication down for July 23, 2017 knowing the July New Moon Exact Moment will be on July 23, 2017 at exactly 4:47am Central Time or 2:47am Pacific Time. Conversely I also have what I believe to be best times of day for shakers and might put exact time for this prediction at the usual early morning hours which I assert to be common for earthquakes or coldest time of day when the sun begins to affect the temperature or around 4:55am Pacific Time.

I’m well aware the Councils will also like some explanation for how I track such energy across the Pacific Tectonic Plate and today I might like to simply say that it is a theory today based on several of my very own experiences tracking identical paths all from the South of Japan to our West Coast. Probably the most notable “Quake Chase 2011” when another Supermoon occurred in the wake of another such landfall at South of Japan of Typhoon Roke on or about September 21, 2011. There was actually an Official Prediction on this event I just found at my EQ Blog and you may view it @ The result of this landfall and my Quake Chase 2011 for the Supermoon was a 5.8 Richters Earthquake that struck just Offshore from Coos Bay, Oregon the very night I was there and was then downgraded, but stands today at a 5.3 there!!! And I just so happened to locate a news story on the subject that followed that very successful Quake Chase@ Note that the original magnitude was either a 5.8 or 5.9 if it really matters due to a discrepancy I just noticed between this story and the published one I just now posted there. Above Quake Chase story also states a copy of that above prediction was hand delivered to person at USGS Menlo Park Office where I Rollerbladed to from the nearby Cal-Train Station. Name edited but I can provide that, of course.

There have also been one or two additional Great Predictions, here’s one story from L.A. Times with a big 4.2 Oakland Earthquake the result@ And a story relating the thousands of P.G. & E. customers out of power there when that 4.2 struck@
Two other great ones that traveled this theoretical route shook Goose Lake in Northern California and Mr. Rainier.

As I usually do, I want to submit this paper to the California and National Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Councils mostly for the purpose of letting the Councils know that there probably IS a small to medium sized earthquake heading DIRECTLY for the San Francisco Bay Area and I suppose just a little to the north around Napa, again, and thus to have this writing there on file for when this earthquake ultimately does happen like that above prediction which I seem to recall was sent by USPS Next Day Air to an office of Richard Eisner on Clay Street there. According to my calculations that office must have been right there in the middle of that town and probably not too far from that guys donut shop where his windows were broken there and mentioned in the L.A. Times story above. Similarly this earthquake probably WILL HAPPEN!!! Thank-You Again for Reading and accepting this Official Prediction.

~~~~~~~Landfall of Severe Tropical Cyclone Mora at Bangladesh on May 30, 2017 will soon become responsible for some Plate Tectonic Action which I expect could possibly come to affect folks around the North American Tectonic Plate. It was noted that Mora was a CAT-1 with 74 mph winds and I have one report of winds at 93 mph, therefore making this NOT one of the biggest windstorms, nor largest potential earthquakes, but at CAT-1. . .I still wish to submit this to the Councils.
~~~~~~~I’m looking at 5.0 Richters (On The Richter Scale) for Illinois, Eastern Missouri, and possibly around the Southern-Half of Indiana and the New Madrid Region in general, by about Mid-July. This movement will probably also shake Santa Barbara at 5 and not be notable, Cuba-Haiti at around 5 and not be notable, and along Mexico at around 5 and neither be notable. Oklahoma at a 5 also, but might be just a little newsworthy there if they shake with this alert. Also note Mexico just had a 6.9 earlier today although from a different much earlier alert.
~~~~~~~So, today I am filing this Official Predication for a 5.0 Richters Earthquake to become the next big Illinois/Missouri/Indiana or New Madrid Region Earthquake before Day 43 or July 12, 2017. The entire actual window will then run until August 15, 2017. . .but this somewhat Major Earthquake is more probable to strike before that July 12, 2017 date and for purposes of the Prediction Councils this alert can end on July 12, 2017 I suppose.
~~~~~~~Herein Submitted to both California and National Earthquake Prediction Councils on this date of June 14, 2017, Thank-You!!!

Letter To: "California Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Council" And "National Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Council" Regarding Upcoming "Grand Finale" Sized Major Earthquake!!!

April 26, 2017

Fm: Les Brown, The EQ Guy

~~~~~~~My most serious concern today, and why I’m writing, is my correlation between the landfall of Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie at Queensland, Australia on March 25, 2017, and the potential for a HUGE Earthquake and possible Tsunami Event to follow. As I’m writing this it is Day 32 after that landfall and I routinely consider around Day 39, and 43 after such a landfall to be most critical dates to expect a Major Earthquake to follow.
~~~~~~~As I often state in such writings, I believe my correlation alone is sufficient science to warrant these statements here in and surely measurements of pressure on, and movement of, tectonic plates with precision instruments in the future, will someday follow and help to substantiate my correlations.
~~~~~~~There have been now several event series’ that point to day numbers in the 39-43 range, including Katrina-Islamabad, and most recently Pam-Kathmandu. Landfall of Katrina August 29, 2005, Islamabad Earthquake October 7, 2005 or on Day 39, and landfall of Cyclone Pam at Vanuatu on March 13, 2015 and the Kathmandu, Nepal Earthquake was on April 25, 2015 or Day 43. Day 39 after the landfall of CAT-5 Cyclone Debbie at Queensland, Australia will be May 3, and Day 43 will be May 7, 2017.
~~~~~~~Occasionally the earthquake resultant strikes sooner and so today I’m dropping a line to the Councils to say a Major Earthquake WILL BE striking like this week or next.
~~~~~~~I’m putting the exact magnitude at 7.9 in my other writings, but here I will tell you the highest possible magnitude that could possibly correlate with Debbies winds might easily go into the 8 magnitude range, or say about an 8.3 on the Richter Scale.
~~~~~~~I’m expecting this epicenter at the usual locations around the Indio/Australian Tectonic Plate, but I’m especially watching Japan, China, and Taiwan, along with New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands. If a straight-line from that landfall were an effective tool, Ensenada, and Tijuana, Mexico could get this affecting Southern California, but the line would also intersect just north of Charleston, South Carolina and a long-shot would or could also affect our entire East Coast.
~~~~~~~It’s ironic that this letter could arrive just moments before the next big Southern California Earthquake or that a Tsunami could strike the Ensenada, Tijuana Region this week or next. Further, that the next big what I call Earthquake “Grand Finale” could even happen at all in late April or Early May 2017.
~~~~~~~When this one does strike I only ask folks to continue to read my EQ Blog at and I will then continue to track this, what I call “Earthquake Energy” all around the world into the future as well.
~~~~~~~Thank-You Again!!!

New "Official Prediction" EQ Alert For California, Seattle Up To 9.1 Richters Filed With California Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Council, and National Earthquake Prediction Evlauation Council

January 29, 2017

Fm: Les Brown

~~~~~~~Very Sorry I haven't kept you all up-to-date on everything I'm currently doing with regards to Earthquakes. Although the vast majority has been concerning other parts of the world and probably outside the jurisdiction of the California or National Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Councils. But sorry if I didn't notify you on some of them just the same. My best would have been, "5 Prediction Friday" where today two of those now Great Predictions were for New Zealand 7.8 and Italy 7.6 and New Zealand was EXACT with Italy close to the original magnitude of 6.6 there. Albeit over my local "Community Radio" Station at 89.9 in Madison, Wisconsin and that "5 Prediction Friday" was a feature on my regular show there, "Earthquake Minute."
~~~~~~~Today you should probably be brought up to date on my latest one from Fridays show, this one notes that when reservoirs have been filled up in the past they have came to precede Major Earthquakes in the general vacinity. I've recently heard following the recent Great California Drought and recent rains that reservoirs in California are now filling up again, probably aquifers, too. I'm writing to the councils today because in addition to reservoirs and aquifers filling up, there is probably also currently a lot of water in a lot of Californias many fault lines and this has also been connected to earthquakes especially with regards to Hydralic Fracturing in some areas, too, although I have read one book on that subject as well. Finally the latest on the snow fall in that same region just this morning has 29 feet of snow at Mammoth Lakes, California.
~~~~~~~Notably Lake Mead had experienced earthquakes upon its being filled and one earthquake in China had 70,000 people killed in a Major Earthquake that was related to the filling of a big reservoir there and I beleive that was the Sichuan Earthquake and the reservoir that was blamed for all that was the Zipingpu Dam@ I can't be certain that California's current reservoir situation is the same as that which preceded either of those in that in California the ground under those reservoirs MIGHT have already settled long ago and now "Refilling" may not pose the same hazard. . . . . but I've also heard that emptying was a hazard which could make filling a hazard, too. A similar story was found at Mother Jones@
~~~~~~~So, filling reservoirs, water in fault lines, and now 29 feet of snow at Mammoth Lakes, when all combined could equal a potentially Major Earthquake and I have been known to state that maximum at 9.1 Richters for California, the California and Nevada Region, and up to Seattle including the areas in between. Most notably, though, I said on the air Friday that it's more likely to be around a 7, there. I'm not so much writing today for the purpose of making this my latest "Official Prediction" as my purpose instead might be to alert CEPEC + NEPEC of at least some potential danger of a significant earthquake, there.
~~~~~~~May I take a moment to thank the California Council for their recent action in noting that a Major Swarm in Southern California might lead to Major Shaking around Los Angeles and their resultant subsequent actions, there! BRAVO!!!
~~~~~~~And Thank-You All Again for accepting my earthquake writing and here's hoping we might again alert the people potentially involved in this possible earthquake activity that some "Earthquake Preperation" might be in order there!!!

Respectfully Submitted, Les Brown

EXHIBIT A--My Updated 2017 Curriculum Vitae/Bio:

I attended school in my hometown in Wisconsin, and went on to receive my General Education Diploma from Blackhawk Tech in October 1981, later attending TV Actors Studio in Chicago where I received a diploma from their Commercials One and Two course in early 1989.

Throughout the 1990’s I worked as a Background Actor in Chicago Film Production working my way up to Feature Roles and Bit Parts and joining the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists or AFTRA, as well as going on to begin an Apprenticeship with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters in 1996 and heading to Los Angeles in 1999 when work ran out in Wisconsin. There I moved my AFTRA card and worked for Central Casting at the studios out there as well as moved my apprenticeship to work with the Southern California Millwrights local #1607 on a number of jobs out there having also worked on a lot of movies and television productions during this time as well. My California Apprenticeship was actually an Indenturement approved through Sacramento and affiliated with Santa Ana College in Santa Ana, California where I still have transcripts on file, there.
In January of 2003 I moved my carpenters union card back to Milwaukee by taking and passing their Journeymans Test and thereby completing my apprenticeship, albeit without going the graduation route. Never married I currently reside at Moms house on Lake Koshkonong in Wisconsin where I watch Hurricanes, Typhoons, windstorms in general and earthquakes very closely on a daily basis and I write my EQ Blog, EQ Twitter, and EQ Guy Facebook among other earthquake writings and some Hollywood stuff, too!

There has also been a streak of Film Production in Chicago and so I have been doing a lot of acting in movies and TV Shows shooting in Chicago in recent years. “Chicago Fire” is one of my favorites where I worked right at the actual Chicago Fire Department station that is seen on TV and was also seen in a Close-Up with the 2 Paramedics at the Nursing Station at the end of Season One. Most recently “Chicago Med” where I was recently SEEN as a “Registered Nurse” in scenes totaling over a MINUTE in cafeteria elbow to elbow with Oliver Platt at next table and hoping for more Great Parts!!!

We are also presently shooting many other projects in Chicago and I recently received my Screen Actors Guild Card in the mail and now hope that will lead to me getting to do some real acting and parts that will lead to lots more work in TV and Motion Pictures! Then possibly out to Hollywood again in the future to do some more work in the Movie Business and more work with Earthquakes!!!

Currently working at WORT-FM, Madison, where I write and record “Promos” for different things happening around the area including researching future shows and bands, and writing such promotions on a weekly basis for two years, now. Additionally as of October 31, 2014, I have gotten my very own what they call an Engineering Shift, where I work in the Studio/Control Room at the station covering a one-hour shift where I run all the controls there for the pre-recorded Democracy Now Show and also give the time and station identification throughout my one-hour shift every Friday from 4:30 to 5:30pm. I have also now done 2 "EQ Radio Shows" and as of January 2017 have been getting a more regular than just an occasional Edition of my now famous “Earthquake Minute” on Fridays for close to two years now and at least one or two, maybe more of them have aired on various stations of the Pacifica Radio Network in California, too!!!

My current plans are to simply continue on with Community Radio and The Pacifica Radio Network along with writing my “EQ Blog” regularly, and with the hope of maybe publishing my most recent book “Bringing Earthquakes To Life” someday, too!!!

Thank-You!!! LES

9 For 9 On "Earthquake Minute" Now Includes Ecuador Earthquake!!!

~~~~~He goes by the name EQ Guy, but it was March 13, 2015, the date Cyclone Pam made landfall at Vanuatu, when he made his debut with "Earthquake Minute" on his local Community Radio station in Madison, Wisconsin.
~~~~~The landfall of Cyclone Pam helped turn the show into sort of a regular feature and the mention of places where The EQ Guy expected major earthquakes quickly became the reality of some fairly accurate predictions!
~~~~~As he'd been saying after that landfall there were indeed earthquakes at New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea, and when Kathmandu, Nepal got the 7.8 the momentum of his new show kept on moving right along with the tectonic plates The EQ Guy is always talking about.
~~~~~Then one day yet another Major Windstorm, Typhoon Soudelor made landfall at Taiwan with 225 mph winds and since this is one of the possible precursors to earthquakes that EQ Guy likes to employ, he decided it was time to go the distance on his "Earthquake Minute" show and go ahead and make an Earthquake Prediction. Having already previously named Santiago, Chile at 8 Richters, EQ Guy knew that according to his "Go Straight Theory" he could do even better there. So he took an extra close look at all the information available over a 2-week period while his normal show producer "DJ The Real Jaguar" was on vacation and upon Jaguars return went public with a now Great Prediction!
~~~~~He'd determined the Major Earthquake was more likely to strike further north of Santiago and chose San Felipe, Chile giving the date as September 12, 2015 and when the now famous 8.3 Magnitude Earthquake struck there a few days later on September 16, he was just 75 miles off! While that counted as one and was his first, that streak would keep continuing on!
~~~~~His streak kept on like that with earthquakes at Burma, Turkey, Antofagasta, near Lima, Peru, and Venezuela until the landfall of Cyclone Winston at Fiji came along and his latest big prediction happened.
~~~~~At first EQ Guy predicted Riobamba, Ecuador for 7.8 Richters, but as the days went by some re-calibration showed it to be more like the actual area we today know as the epicenter of the recent Great Ecuador Earthquake! With the magnitude actually being at 7.8 exactly as he'd said, too! As of this writing his record for predictions is now at 9 for 9!!! Some comments and a lot of new followers on his EQ Guy Twitter page at and he is very sorry for the loss of life there while still hoping someday all his work might be able to be used to alert people BEFORE an earthquake strikes.
~~~~~EQ Guy was working as an actor the day of the Northridge Earthquake when he decided to do some research and writes a regular EQ Blog at and you can hear his "Earthquake Minute" on Fridays when time permits between 4:15 and 4:30pm Central Time at CLICK Listen Live, and he is starting to enjoy the way he ends the shows these days when he throws it back to his favorite Disc Jockey and brand new friend, The Real Jaguar with his now famous closing line, "I'm the EQ Guy. . . and THAT'S Earthquake Minute"!

UPDATE Of "Official Prediction" For California Filed on December 24, 2015:

THE FOLLOWING is an Update to an already filed "Official Prediction" dated December 24, 2015 and that can be viewed @ Although some references in the following E-Mail might direct to "Below" it is actually "Above" here! Thank-You!!! EQ Guy'

Fm: EQ Guy, Name Edited

~~~~~~~Today I'm sending an update to the attached letter regarding my correlation with Major Earthquakes and Severe Winter Conditions due especially to a lot more additional Severe Winter stuff currently happening all across the country. Updating my previous snowfall amounts that were the basis for the original writing, Mt. Baker, California is now saying 149 Inch Base!!! As of the date January 23, 2016, now upwards of FOUR (4) Feet of snow has struck our East Coast and at best this will extend this alert to about March 5, 2016 or Day 43 after all of that brand-new Major Snowfall there.
~~~~~~~A report just came in on Sunday Night of records being broken for COLD on the East Coast including one extreme temperature of MINUS 37 degrees, one report of wind chill being MINUS 114 Degrees, and Boston getting a record MINUS 19 Degrees albeit far below the normal record for that region, too! I've surely already gone into the effects such heavy amounts of snowfall have on tectonic plates and need only add Extreme Cold will also shrink much of the ground it comes in contact with in the same manner as we have used "Dry Ice" to shrink a big stuck valve in a Power Plant one day and in under an hour it was loosened. . . and removed effectively! As I like to say that proves to me that such cold conditions can also affect tectonic plates in the same exact manner!!!
~~~~~~~There was a large number of small earthquakes at around the State of Maine along the border there with Canada or around 19 total as of my last observation there. On Saturday a 5.1 Oklahoma Earthquake struck on the numerical anniversary of the Eureka 2010 Earthquake that also struck a similar number of days after a big East Coast Blizzard of December 18-19, 2009. You may still view THAT "Official Prediction" that came to precede both Eureka 2010 and Haiti @ I submit to you all today that the CURRENT Conditions will in all probability also come to precede a Major California Earthquake, now!
~~~~~~~Finally, while I had and continue to say for California, even saying on my "Earthquake Minute" Simi Valley, 6.4 February 11, 2016, at this time I should add that such movement as one of my Seismology Collegues pointed out will not have a given time frame and will consist mainly of a general basic movement of large tectonic regions and therefore I'm now saying to watch all along the San Andreas Fault and perhaps Mexico for a Major Earthquake!! I suppose it is due to the fact that the jurisdiction of the California and National Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Councils (CEPEC, and NEPEC) ends at Tijuana, Mexico. . . that I heavily emphasize California. Seattle, Cascadia, Idaho, Alaska, and Oklahoma could also get more shaking and the original New Madrid Earthquakes appear to have also been preceded by Severe Winter Conditions!!!
~~~~~~~Thank-You for accepting this update.
