Stress Points on June 24, 2003

After the massive Global Quake on June 23 some stress points were relieved (Harvard, Equador, Qiongzhong, Tiksi, and Midway islands), with a spate of quakes in a stretch zone, in a line including Italy, Greece, Iran, and Pakistan, with a minor Global Quake the following day at 6:00 UTC. But others continued (Bilibino and Magadan, Wake islands, Gabon and Zambia, Puerto Rico, and Pitcairn islands), and new stress points were added (Korea, Cook islands, and Tennessee). The Pacific, from the Bering Straits through to the S. Pacific, appears to be a point where compression adjustments will soon be made, and stretching accidents in the southeast United States and western Africa can be expected.
