I think this quake that trigger the big one in cali..its 6 hours ago..
I'm trying to understand the impact of major Juan De Fuca plate quake. It's holding two other plates in place (image appears that way). Are you saying if this goes it destabilizes the entire thing from north to south and therefore sets off something unprecedented (has the potential to)?
I have a lot of family in California so am not trying to be weird about it but rather hear the concern in many on this one.
What is a little bit concerning to me, are the subsequent smaller quakes (deeper) on both sides of the subduction zone. This could possible indicate some movement in the subducting plates. It is always a crap shoot as to what could set things in motion.
I felt it just outside Eureka and so did everyone else! It was by far the strongest I have felt since I moved here 20 years ago.. It was very long and rolling. Strange that it is so shallow. Also strange that there has been no damage.
