27 July. Alaska 6.9
28 July. Papua 7.0

This forecast was a mixed success.
Weak Northern Hemisphere action was expected from 26 July, so no forecast was posted. Strong Northern Hemisphere quakes arrived instead.
A forecast for the remainder of the period was posted on 28 July after the Papua 7.0 but big quakes were largely over by then (Murphy's Law). Poor location success.
Indonesian volcanoes Sinabung, Raung, Dukono are in steady eruption, fitting that part of the forecast profile.
