Reports so far of 18 bodies recovered at Everest Base Camp.

Many victims in Kathmandu, with the Dharahara Tower no more......

Is somebody paying attention to the map? Last big earthquakes and volcano eruptions were around the "Ring of Fire". Considering Nepal the farthest location, but put it together in the map with :

M6.1 - Haida Gwaii- West Coast of Canada.
Calbuco Volcano -Southern Chile.
New Zealand (5.9 mag, yesterday).




All that in just 3 days.

Calling all ATSers, should we start monitoring the Nazca Plate and California area right now?

Looks like all the areas hit are making a sort of circular link.... when they've all been connected, all areas on the link will sink into the Pacific!

I would say for the North American west coast to be ready, yes.

Nepal is nearly opposite to Chile on the globe is it not? I feel like the volcano eruption could have caused this..

Not trying to scare people and I'm not an expert, but take a look to the 2 spots (I made red circles with a "!"). Those 2 areas are too quiet and energy wasn't released for a long time. It's building up ?....I hope no but the map is clear.

It's better to be safe than sorry; any major quake that occurs near the ring of fire reverberates around the globe- however the Indian subcontinent is the reason why we have the Himalayas to start with so there is a good chance that that quake will be localized-but try telling that to those poor folk in Nepal.

This gave me chills. This morning I had a dream of there being a large EQ here (California) and I wake up and read the news to see a 7.9 has hit Nepal -- first thing that came to my mind was all the seismic/volcanic activity as of late could be a prelude to "the big one" getting ready to strike in California.
Best prepare myself.

Cheers,

If I lived in Southern CA, I would seriously be looking to move like yesterday. Looking at the images here, it's clearly black and white (I know I know, it's in color) but hey it's coming and I believe it's coming within weeks. The question is, how strong and how much damage. People are taking a gamble by staying. That Nepal quake was devastating. Buildings collapsed, almost a thousand dead so far, it looks like an A-Bomb went off. I guess some people like to live on the edge.....literally.

Yes I think I think it's a close antipode.

Death toll is approaching 1500 now.

That map is really scary. I don't like how quiet California has been and the fact there have been so many sea lions stranded along the coast has me worried. Over 1,600 pups have washed ashore and Sea World had to suspend its sea lion show to focus on rescuing them. There were 5X more pups this year than previous years.

Some suspect it's because of warm water, others suspect the fish their mommas use to feed them have gone to deeper waters so it takes longer to hunt.

Maybe there's a connection with an upcoming California earthquake? Pure speculation on my part but it's a little chilling.

I'm on the west coast of BC.
I'm not in a position to just move or even leave. I wouldn't say we're trying to live on the edge. It's just where you end up living.

That's something I'd be paying attention : Animal behaviour in the hot areas. Everything counts when we talk about prevention.

In all seriousness, how do you prepare for "The BIG One"? Do you leave the territory or plan to stay and somehow live through it? I'd like to know your plans as I'm sure there are others with the same.

Would you be so kind as to fill us in. Thanks

You know, a friend of mine just had a close call with death.....and wouldn't go to the hospital even though I was begging him to do so. He survived but isn't fine yet. His reason? He doesn't can't afford insurance nor the hospital bill.

My question: At what point does your life matter more than money or living circumstances? That's why it's a gamble I guess. Because when it hits, you're a victim of the event and not much you can do while your house comes crashing down around you. At least consider sleeping in a tent.....seriously. I read about it but can't find it now how people afraid of earthquakes slept in tents away from their homes and trees.

Back on topic, I read about this earthquake

On November 1, 1935, another strong earthquake occurred near Timiskaming, Canada and was felt over an area of the United States estimated at one million square miles.

That's one heck of an EQ and I imagine CA's will be even bigger and cause Tsunamis.

Being in a SF I fear I am in the worst possible spot to be. Therefore, I'm going to be moving further south of the bay to another metro city to stay with family and just commute to SF from there.
By planning I mean buy and store a lot of non perishable foods and water in safe places because going to the store would be out of the question after "the big one" -- I am stuck in this area until I'm done with schooling so I don't have the luxury or funds to pick up and leave. Fortunately, the area I'm moving to is very close in proximity to large mountains so if we need to evacuate to higher ground for any reason we have that option available.

Cheers,
~Sovereign

I'd buy some antibiotics, too. Just in case.
