Former U.S. Geological Survey geologist Jim Berkland is predicting that a major North American Earthquake is imminent.
Berkalnd told Fox News' Neil Cavuto that "The months of October, March, and April are the three most devastating earthquakes in terms of damage in the San Francisco Bay Area in history. And we are having on the 19th of this month not only the full moon, but within an hour the closest approach of the moon to the earth until the year 2016. The next day is the equinoctial tides.

"So you're bringing together three of the maximum tide raising forces. We know about the ocean tides. But there is also an Earth tide. And there is a tide in the ground water. All of these help to release sudden, built up strain, and cause earthquakes."
Cavuto asked Berkland if he was implying that "we could be looking at a very imminent event in the United States within the next week or two."
"Yes," replied Berkland, who also predicted the 1989 San Francisco quake. "My -- what I call a seismic window, this top seismic window in years is developing between the 19th and 26th of this month. And this was 7.0 monster and it says geologist had warned about it. And a week earlier, the they were talking about the tides, not to worry about the really tides coming up. I think there is worry here too."
