From the Seismic monitor it appears that we have had a 4.2 quake in Utah, a 5.2 in Arizona and a 4.4 in northern Mexico. This is in addition to the 4.0 quake in Oklahoma yesterday. There have been a number of aftershocks. The last article below comes from the EU Times and contains some interesting information (apply the usual caveats regarding various websites and our effort to look at all available information - even with that caveat, this one seems a little far-fetched):
Four earthquakes occurred overnight between around 10 p.m. Saturday and 7:30 a.m. Sunday along the Arizona-New Mexico border ranging from a 3.4- to 5.2-magnitude, according to the United States Geological Survey.
The earthquakes all occurred within the same general location, about 30 miles northwest of Lordsburg, N.M.
The largest earthquake, a 5.2-magnitude, occurred around 10 p.m. on Saturday, followed by a 3.5, 3.4 and 3.6-magnitude earthquake that finished Sunday morning, according to USGS.
Arizona residents in Graham County, Safford, Tucson, Gilbert, Mesa, Chandler and other areas have reported feeling the tremor.
An ominous report prepared by the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) that is circulating in the Kremlin today states that confirmation has been received from China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS) that the world’s largest ever military maritime exercises now underway in the Pacific Ocean have been ordered to their “highest alert” status after the 5.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Arizona hours ago was confirmed as being a part of the still expanding, and mysterious, North American magnetic anomaly.
Important to note, and as we had reported on in our 13 June report Russia Issues Grim Report On North American Magnetic Anomaly, Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force Lieutenant-General Viktor Bondarev then warned that a “catastrophic event” may be nearing for the North American region his forces had “electronically swept” for “magnetic anomalies” barely a fortnight ago stretching from Alaska to California.
Within 10-days of General Bondarev’s 13 June warning, this new GRU report says, a “precursor” to this potential “catastrophic event” did indeed occur in Alaska when this region was struck by a powerful 7.9 magnitude earthquake on 23 June and described by witnesses as lasting “several minutes” and was felt as a “steady shake and roll, shake and roll, shake and roll”.
Of graver concern, however, than the 23 June 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Alaska, this report continues, was the5.2 magnitude earthquake occurring earlier today at 00:59:33 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) (9:59 PDT local time) that was centered about 50 km (31 miles) northwest of the city of Lordsburg, New Mexico, and felt some 240 km (150 miles) west in the city of Tucson, Arizona, and 480 km (300 miles) in Roswell, New Mexico.
Raising the grave concerns about the 5.2 magnitude Arizona earthquake, GRU experts in this report say, was its “well defined magnetic anomalous connection” with not only the 13 June 7.9 magnitude Alaska earthquake, but a series of other quakes occurring within a 5-hour time span immediately prior to and after it…which include:
Following the 5.2 Arizona earthquake, this report continues, it was followed by a 3.5 magnitude aftershock a little over an hour later at 01:08:44 UTC, with the last earthquake occurring in this “anomalous magnetic hyper-sequence” (that stretched from Alaska to Utah, over to California, back to Utah, over to Arizona and then back to Alaska in this 5-hour period) the 3.0 earthquake that struck Middleton Island, Alaska, nearly 9-minutes later at 01:17:28 UTC.

Important to note, and as General Bondarev had previously reported, Russian military information regarding these events was necessitated by a “severe mysterious magnetic anomaly” detected by the Kosmos 2473 satellite on 3 June occurring in the Yellowstone region of the Western United States which resulted in what is called an “earthquake swarm”.
Also to note about the 3 June Yellowstone “magnetic anomaly”, General Bondarev’s report stated, was that satellite measurements showed it being precipitated by the mysterious earthquake swarm hitting the Brooks Range Mountains in Alaska which seismologists are still at a loss to explain.
The information relating to the linking of these two “events” was further verified by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) magnetic anomaly maps and data for North America showing a strange magnetic “disturbance/ripple” emanating from Brooks Range and ending at Yellowstone on 3 June, both of these areas, it is important to note, being part of the Rocky Mountains that stretch more than 4,830 km (3,000 miles) from the northernmost part of British Columbia, in western Canada, to New Mexico, in the southwestern United States.
The “profound significance” of RIMPAC going into such a “high alert” status so soon into their 26-June to 1 August Pacific Ocean exercise, this report concludes, was its “mission objective” which, according to the MSS, is to “render all aid and assistance, and restore public order, to the American region that has just suffered a catastrophic natural event.”
