Some crazy stuff is going on in Cali but seems to be affecting my neck of the woods too. Have any of you checked out the rumblings going on in Yellowstone the past few hours! It is going crazy! I hope this ride doesn't get any worse!
The focus of an earthquake is the actual point underground where rocks break. The depth of the focus can be categorized as shallow (up to 70 km below the surface), intermediate (70 to 300 km), or deep (greater than 300 km).
I have a question....
How do you have a quake at 0.1 km depth?? Isn't that like...ground level?
My sis is in Mission Viejo. I sent her an email asking if she felt the earthquakes. She said yes. One at night on the 28th and one on the 29th in the afternoon. That's all she could tell me. Not a very informative sister...

The Palos Verdes Peninsula
The report mentioned that a significant enough quake just off the shoreline (somewhere in the 7 mag range) could cause portions of the peninsula to collapse into the ocean, causing an immediate and overwhelming tsunami that would devastate the entire LA Bay.
They are unusual IMO, I have lived here in LA my whole life, yet these seem to be different. It feels like what I can only describe as being on top of water, like a tub sloshing around...

I agree with you, PublicEnemyNo1, regarding the interval between quakes. I think these events do follow a certain rough pattern. And, like I said, we're due a good shake.
One thing is for sure. LA will definately be hit with a major quake (7+). That you can count on. Most likely it will be due to a rupture along the San Andreas fault. And, from what I've read, there's a very good chance it will happen within the next 20 years. Then again, it may happen tonight. Who knows? Thing is, in all likelyhood, you'll come out of it OK and have a good story for your grand kids some day.
I'm officially freaking out now...lots of these lately. Pretty strong too.
