This forecast got messy and quakes ended up straddling different timezones.
The decision to drop some Mag 6 risk areas from the 7-9 Pacific Forecast in favour of volcanoes was premature.
The big Celebes Sea 7.3 was a perfect fit to the previous days forecast....frustrating.
No forecast was offered for 11 January due to other commitments.
The Makira 6.3 was a perfect hit for the previous day and arrived at 4.17am just a few hours late.
