Hi all. Me popping in again. Does anyone know why the Carson quake near LA is highlighted in red on USGS? Risky location? Damage? Destroyed a sensor, or what have you? It's not a high magnitude, a 3.4

I believe because it was felt by a lot of people. A high density Area.




List items with a red background have been identified as "significant", based on a combination of magnitude, PAGER alert level, and the number of Did You Feel It? responses.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'd hate to be the person living on that block, gulp.

So just more volcanic eruptions and 7.0 earthquakes, nothing going on here.

That PNG 7-pointer sent some impressive ripples around the planet -- I'm watching the waves roll through other seismos via GEE at the moment. I had just shut it down about half an hour before the quake, go figure. Saw it posted here & restarted it to watch the lines. Hopefully damage & injuries don't amount to much, but it looks like it was in a populated region

More or less. Unless you delude yourself in to thinking the planet or someone on it just wants to F with people.

Of course not, it's the giant invisible planet's gravitational field that is doing all the real work.

Wow, what a weird place for an earthquake!

I went and looked up some of the history of EQs in the area and came up with this:

Historic Earthquakes Southern Michigan 1947
08 10 02:46:41.3 UTC (local 08/09)

Magnitude 4.60 Intensity VI

Largest Earthquake in Michigan

Damage was heaviest in the area southeast of Kalamazoo at Athens, Bronson, Coldwater, Colon, Matteson Lake, Sherwood, and Union City. Chimneys were damaged, windows and plaster were broken, and brick cornices were downed. Also felt in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Ontario, Canada.

USGS 4.6 in 1947
That was a 4.6

So this will rank up as one of the bigger ones in the state ever recorded.

Here is a map of where the 1947 quake was:


This one looks to be in the same area.



It is now upgraded to a 4.2

You beat me too it! I've been out of the house since this morning, so I didn't even know about it until about five minutes ago.


a reply to: slayerfan

Didn't feel it up here, but we're quite a ways north of the area. I'm wondering if it sloshed the lake around any. Might be cool to see some bigger waves up here.

I cant tell from the maps and my EQ 3D doesn't show one but is there a fault line there? Meaning, did the quake take place on a fault?

a reply to: Dianec

I dont know of any faults from what ive read its only third one in michigan one being in the up closer to canada. Not third one felt but third one centered in mi pretty strange felt kind of like sitting in a boat. Does any one have any idea if there could be after shocks? I know there is some great minds on here in this subject. First thing came to mind was mudrid and yellostone thay was a scary thought

a reply to: Dianec

There are some ancient, presumably inactive faults that run through the Lower Peninsula. It's quite possible that this was on one of them.

Looks like it could have been on the Albion Scipio Trend, going by that map.

As far as I know there are no major fault lines through Michigan, but there are some smaller ones.
I tried to find a map and came up with this:


The closest major fault line is the new madrid.

Same map.

I read an article last year, and I went to look for it but I can't find it.

Anyway it was about how Michigan has been "Injecting Carbon Dioxide underground to flush out left over oil from oil fields.

The article mentioned the Kalmazoo area.

I am leaving for work or I would look some more.

Thanks. The descriptions are somewhat telling but don't make it easy to speculate. One person states it felt like a truck going by (vibrations), another like a thud (like a fault would feel like).
The vibrations description doesn't sound like a fault line quake but rather what I imagine liquid might produce. But that's impossible right there. Maybe at yellowstone but not there. The rocking of the boat description sounds like a fault line one too. My initial thought was fracking due to the unusual location of this quake but usually those are identified pretty quickly. In any case, good find on the fault. It's a tiny one but it's there none the less.

I'm from Galesburg.And we're very surprised.This isn't a seismically active area.
