So I've been reading again. You know, the thing that people try to prevent you from doing. This time, it's about the alleged earthquake that's supposed to hit my home state of California. Apparently, LA is about to get its ass handed to it by the forces of nature and planetary alignment.

Now, I'm not certain if any of this # is true, but we'll see. There's conflicting opinions between supporters and skeptics. I'm not gonna take a side. Since I'll be around the big city and in my hometown of [name redacted], I'll be putting up videos and photos as the day goes along. I'll be taking a neutral point of view even if it does/doesn't happen.

Only time will tell.

I remember reading about this one guy,was predicting fairly accurately about earthquakes hitting right around full moons I think. He was saying that the moon is well known for causing high tides from its pull on the earth and that helps to cause crust displacement. I can't remember now where I read about it,but I believe he predicted the '89 world series earthquake.

Well these predictions never come true, not since I've been lurking here. It's almost to the point where if something is predicted here you can pretty much guarantee nothing will happen.

Star and flag though because I love the doom, and wouldn't mind if things shook up a bit.

Eta: I don't mean to say anyone from ATS predicted this, it's a guy from YouTube, just reported here like a bunch of other stuff...

Berkland.... HE predicted earthquakes by monitoring how many cats and dogs got lost too!! Here's a bit of info:

On the subject of cats and dogs (no... seriously...)

Using syzygy and other factors—such as the number of cats and dogs listed in the lost and found in newspaper classified advertisements—Berkland said he accurately predicted several earthquakes, including the October 17, 1989 earthquake in San Francisco, California. Berkland said the number of cats and dogs reported missing goes up prior to an earthquake. The numbers went up significantly prior to the 1989 San Francisco quake, he said.


On Moon causing quakes...

According to Berkland, seismometers left on the moon by Apollo astronauts show that moonquakes occur most frequently at perigee.

"So we know Earth's gravity triggers moonquakes. I don't think any scientist disputes that," Berkland said. "When I learned that, I went to my former [U.S. Geological Survey] colleagues in Menlo Park [California] and pointed out this really exists, so what's so difficult about turning it around?"

According to Berkland, the U.S. Geological Survey said such a theory is ridiculous—the Earth is 82 times more massive than the moon. Though the Earth can trigger quakes on the moon, they said, the moon is too small to trigger any earthquakes.


I don't think the criticism is valid.... The Earth causes quakes on the moon because of its mass effecting the solid moon. The Moon's effect on our water causing a heavy-weight water displacement could cause quakes? So I'm not saying the moon is big/massive enough to effect our solid ground/plates but it effects the heavy water which in turn effects the ground it is moving over/weighing heavy on.

An old article disputing moon causes earthquakes
- I am always wary of a source which promotes Brian Cox.

Another online post stating moon doesn't cause quakes.

With the above in mind (articles which don't reference actual scientific studies - unless they are disputing Berkland's and referencing his) I can believe the moon effecting water could cause quakes - in a different way to how the Earth causes quakes on the moon.

EDIT: Syzygy =

The word is often used in reference to the Sun, Earth and either the Moon or a planet, where the latter is in conjunction or opposition. Solar and lunar eclipses occur at times of syzygy, as do transits and occultations. The term is often applied when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction (new moon) or opposition (full moon).[5]

The word syzygy is often loosely used to describe interesting configurations of planets in general. For example, one such case occurred on March 21, 1894 around 23:00 GMT, when Mercury transited the Sun (as could have been seen from Venus), and Mercury and Venus both simultaneously transited the Sun as seen from Saturn. It is also used to describe situations when all the planets are on the same side of the Sun although they are not necessarily in a straight line, such as on March 10, 1982.[6]

Earthquakes happen when you least expect it. Don't buy any of those predictions.

Earthquake in LA tomorrow? REALLY? Is this viral marketing for San Andreas? I find it hard to be believe that a predictable (deliberate or otherwise) quake would happen on the day of the release of a movie about an earthquake, and in the same location. When TPTB do things it's not usually quite that overt.

Yup I agree San Andreas is out on the same day.
Lol.
Just a clever marketing campaign this is.

The earthquake is going to happen tomorrow, the movie San Andreas (acting "The Rock") is going to be release tomorrow.

Oh man I do love a bit of good doom porn. Even more so when I get a date AND a time, plus it being so near so I don't have to wait long. That aside.

Hes predicting a 9.8 from what I've read. That's really up there, I think the biggest one we know about is a 9.5 at best. A 9.8 would be some crazy stuff. I do find it funny that this prediction is right in line with the movie, maybe it's a media move. Most likely just a promotion stunt, wonder how much they paid him if it is.

Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow... but soon...

A recent report by the U.S. Geological Survey shows the inevitability of just such a quake, which is predicted to hit within the next couple of decades.

"The new likelihoods are due to the inclusion of possible multi-fault ruptures, where earthquakes are no longer confined to separate, individual faults, but can occasionally rupture multiple faults simultaneously," lead author of the study and USGS scientist, Ned Field says. "This is a significant advancement in terms of representing a broader range of earthquakes throughout California's complex fault system."

But you must admit that the notion that a full moon having any effect that differs from a new moon in the same position above the earth is entirely ridiculous, even if the moon does have an overall effect on earthquakes.

Yes - that is true.

Is the moon closer to the sun in full or new state? Sorry, I'll bugger off and Google this...

I'm wondering if they could act together? Stupid I know, just thinking out loud.

Now this is just wack. For starters: How does one place seismometer on hologram during non-existing mission...

But if there were a moon i would think that its gravitational pull could have some effect on earths crust. Even if we can't measure it doesn't mean it does not exist. I mean that when conditions are "optimal" it might be this little additional force that triggers the events.

Just saying, weird that we are currently experiencing earthquakes in the UK were we don't have plate movement, nothing big, just 4.something, could be due to fracking for all i know but it has happened this week

Cheers

Well, the 28th is rapidly drawing to an end, so unless something happens real soon, this is just another failed prediction. What a surprise.

Yeah. We're all alive. #, I was excited, too. I was thinking," Holy #, something interesting is finally going to hit this godforsaken town." Nope. Of course not.

Glad to see all the west coast folks here in the US are still here!

Now for the next prediction.....
