Mw 6.6 Hokkaido, Japan Region
updated 2 June 2021 UTC

On 14 January 2016 a strong earthquake occurred at Hokkaido, Japan Region at a depth of 50km. The seismic event occurred at 03:25:33 UTC and had an estimated moment magnitude (Mw) 6.6.

Geometry became critical on the 10th when lunar geometry peaked 10 after two planetary alignments involving Venus, most notably Venus-Sun-Uranus, and a WPG peak. Not suprisingly, a Mw 6.5 earthquake occurred on the 11th in Kepulauan Talaud, Indonesia and a Mw 6.1 in Hokkaido, Japan. The second seismic increase occurred on the 14th after a second WPG peak on the 12th and a lunar peak 9 on the 13th. A Mw 6.1 at Santa Cruz, Bolivia preceded the Mw 6.6, again in Hokkaido, Japan.
