When Yellowstone blows it’s cork, I think we’re all in for a bad day. With a little luck, I’ll cash in my chips before the time comes.
Living in southern California, I’ve pretty much come to take it for granted that there will be quakes from time to time, and so it doesn’t bother
me that much when one happens (so long as it’s under 4.5 or so). Anything above that, however, definately gets my full attention. I’ve been
through a number of good shakes in the past. When the pictures on the wall start turning sideways and stuff is crashing all around, it tends to get a
little worrisome. Thing is, while it’s happening you don’t know how much stronger it’s gonna get or how much longer it’ll last. Then when
it’s over, you wonder if it was a foreshock or the main event. You’re like totally helpless while Mother Nature takes the controls from you. It
As with Yellowstone’s supervolcano, in southern California we’re way overdue
for the San Andreas fault to rupture in a major quake. I
understand from numerous surveys that a great deal of stress has built up along certain sections of the fault. So, a major quake in the 7+ range is
considered likely for the L.A. Basin region in the near future (20 years or sooner, maybe tomorrow). But, since I know it’s on the way and there’s
nothing I can do about it, I don’t dwell on it. It is what it is, I guess.
Here it’s quakes, in Wyoming/Utah regions it’s supervolcano’s and blizzards, in Florida it’s hurricanes, in Texas/Oklahoma and the southeast
it’s tornadoes, and so on, and so on... It seems no matter where you go, you’re just living on borrowed time. So, I guess I’ll just stay put for
now and hope I’m not in the shower when it hits...
Thanks for the update, TrueAmerican
. Cool thread.
PS: I’ve also noticed a lot of small quake activity in Lakeview (Oregon/Nevada border) area. It’s been going on almost daily for some time now. I
thought maybe fracking activity was causing it. Hmmm...
