an increase in earthquakes have hit the
United States striking California Oklahoma and Alaska are they due to the
super Blood Wolf Moon is there any correlation between the
lunar cycles and earthquakes on Monday January 21st six quakes have
struck the United States one measuring a magnitude of 4.7 for earthquakes have hit Alaska one has
hit Oklahoma and another California the other night a super blood wolf moon
graced the night sky turning the moon red in the process but our the Blood
Moon and earthquakes connected of the four earthquakes to hit Alaska
one measured a magnitude 4.7 one a 3.0 one a 2.5 and one a 2.7

January 20th local time meanwhile in Oklahoma a magnitude 3.6 struck 20
kilometers southeast of Halina finally a magnitude 3.3 earthquake hit California
just five kilometers southeast of Chester lunar eclipses occur when the
full moon passes into the shadow of the site of the earth facing away from the
Sun and because a lunar eclipse only takes place during a full moon tides are
higher during this time according to the US Geological Survey earthquakes can be
up to three times more likely during high tides the agency said you must stop and
realize that the background probability is in general very low in a given place
and year a fraction of a percent so that raising this tiny probability by a
factor of three during high tides still results in a very tiny probability
however the USGS cautioned the increased likelihood still meant they’re very
