Think I was updating as you were posting.......very odd.....I didn't feel it downtown, but reports of those further southwest and southeast felt it.....probably the infrastructure dampened the effect by the time it got to me.

You can feel a 4.1? Man, I think I lived in Ca. for way too long. I'll admit I am a total earthquake snob, but those are still rather small. I wouldn't be overly concerned. After shocks are normal. Given that earthquakes don't seem to be common there, if they continue then you can start to worry. I would be more worried if there weren't a couple of aftershocks.

Took the words literally right out of my mouth.....what i was saying to someone else in another thread......this is odd to say the least.

Yes, you have lived in cali too long....an earthquake there is not the same experience as an earthquake of similar magnitude in other areas.....the effect is entirely dependent upon the geography.....a 3.0 in cali on mostly rock....bit of shaking, no big deal.....3.0 in oklahoma were the geography is much softer......gives a tidal effect, or rolling....and we don't get them (or didn't) in Arizona....the depths are odd as well....

Dutch Sinse predicted the Az quakes a few days ago, his newest vid says we are still under massive pressure and should see more quakes.

I remember a 3.1 in Washington state, and it was centered 20 miles away and it made the house shake pretty good. I thought the washing machine had an unbalanced load on spin and then realized it was an earthquake.. a 4+ would have much more pizzazz

Was just looking at an eq app... FOUR 5.0+ EQ's in Atka, AK within twenty mins, an hour, to hour and a half ago... Sorry for posting on your AZ thread...

Yeah, it's part of the ring of fire, but I don't think it's TOO normal...

Quakes there are not unheard of... Far from it. But they are uncommon.

Largest in Arizona history: 5.6
earthquake.usgs.gov...

The 3.2 turned out to be a foreshock. And with only .1 mag separating the 4.0 and 4.1, it is possible a larger one could occur soon, within hours or days.

Have a little Arizona quake history:

The earliest documents which describe Arizona earthquakes were those recorded at Fort Yuma, located in the 1800's on the California side of the Colorado River. Shocks which probably centered in the Imperial Valley of California, or in Mexico, have been noted there since late 1852.

No earthquake in recorded history has caused deaths or injuries in Arizona. In the past century or more, 14 tremors of intensity V to VII have centered within its borders, of which 12 were reported after Arizona entered the Union in February 1912. All of these shocks, however, were moderate in intensity, with one intensity VII, one VI-VII, four VI, and eight V.

Probably the most famous earthquake in this region occurred in 1887 near Bavispe, Mexico, about 190 miles southeast of Tucson. The temblor caused great destruction near its epicenter. From Guaymas to Nogales, Mexico, Benson and Tucson, Arizona, and at towns as far distant as Albuquerque, New Mexico, water in tanks spilled over, buildings cracked, chimneys were toppled, and railroad cars were set in motion. An observer at Tombstone, near the Mexican border, reported sounds ``like prolonged artillery fire.''

The first damaging earthquake known to have centered within Arizona's borders occurred on January 25, 1906, the year of the great San Francisco earthquake, and of a damaging series of shocks at Socorro, New Mexico. The shock was violent at Flagstaff, about 115 miles north of Phoenix.

The cumulative terror produced by a series of 52 earthquakes, from September 10 to 23, 1910, caused a construction crew in the Coconino Forest near Flagstaff to break camp and leave the area. Boulders rolled down on their camp from nearby mountains, and the earth maintained a constant quiver. The shocks grew in intensity until September 23, when a very strong shock raged throughout northern Arizona. It was so severe north of the San Francisco Mountains that Indians fled from the region.

A tremor on August 18, 1912, caused a 50-mile-long crack in the earth north of the San Francisco Range. Houses were damaged at Williams, and the shock was strong in Coconino County, north of Flagstaff. Rockslides roared down the mountainsides, and the earth seemed to roll ``like waves on the Colorado River.''

A shock that cracked walls and plaster at Wellton, located a few miles east of Yuma in southwestern Arizona, occurred January 2, 1935. Although few residents of the small town were frightened by the tremor, everyone felt the ground quiver, and homes shake.

Eight days later, a slightly stronger earthquake awakened sleepers at Grand Canyon, 175 miles north of Phoenix. Many were frightened by the distinct subterranean rumble and the movement of their houses. Walls were cracked in some cases, and rockslides occurred in the mountains. Three slight foreshocks were felt by Grand Canyon residents during the first week of January, and one very minor aftershock was noted on January 15.

On January 16, 1950, a strong earthquake in Apache County left several cracks in the ground as it rumbled through the small town of Ganado. The cracks, one-half inch wide and up to 12 feet long, extended in a north-south direction near the Ganado trading post.

a reply to: TrueAmerican If i were in Phoenix..will soon be..i would get in my jeep and go look . the 4.1 is just 49 miles from phx, and close to hwy 17. if you look at the USGS quake map, overlay hazards faults and satillite you will see dirt trails going right up to the epicenter.
the area has really low hazard rating, indicating no quakes for a long time
and no nearby faults at all
Now a similar situation is in Oklahoma..no faults no hazards but some days as many quakes above 2.5 as the rest of theUS. If you went to a quake location you would find a fracking operation with a 1000psi pump injecting fluids down 5 km. for days. quakes are no surprise, in a quake free zone.

by the way a friend of mine felt the quake last night around 11, in north scottsdale,.
