I live approximately 30-45 minutes from Borrego and ride up in the area often because they have great motorcycle routes. The earthquake definitely woke me up and it lasted longer than the normal ones we feel out here in the Greater Coachella Valley. This one felt like we were on waves and the series of small ones after were felt for about an hour. They're never comfortable, but that's something that comes along with the territory when living in So Cal. I'm sure there will be doom porn out here for the next few weeks in regards to the "Big One" as that's how it works with any earthquake felt in So Cal. Tbh these didn't feel bad, or any loud crashing sounds like ones in the past; it felt like we were floating on water quietly. Odd feel to say the least.

So, my family thinks I'm a little crazy, because I told them that I was preparing for the idea that a big EQ could hit the Seattle area in the near future.... They laughed it off, but then I told them I began putting a urban survival bag together, in hopes that if the big EQ hits the area (restricting aid coming into the area), I want to be able to be able to "bug out" into the wilderness if need be for a handful of days... They now think I'm crazy, I told them I'm just prepared, and hope I never need to use this stuff which they consider "a waste of money"... I'm curious, do others who live on the West coast (or in any EQ hot zone), do you have simple prep around or do you go to any extreme?

I think that being reasonably prepared for any emergency is just smart.
And one should always be prepared for emergencies that might be more likely in the area in which you live.

Standard FEMA line is 3 days. It never hurts to be a little over-prepped. If something happens and you have more than you need, you can help others with the extra. If the worst happens, then you have what you need. And if it gets worse than that ... well, odds are that you weren't going to be able to prep easily for it anyhow.

M.T. Keshe has predicted a major California Earthquake to occur this year. 9.0+ One that will shake the entire North American continent. Around videos 96-105.

Also available on youtube. This is why military issued Operation Cascadia Rising for CA from june 7-10.

It is extremely smart to do such! Survival preparation is a must for ANY kind of emergency. Planes prepare, military prepares, company HQs prepare, millionaires prepare, why shouldnt citizens prepare too? (Last to know and told to "laugh it off" like on the Titanic..
) Create a list and get the items! Watch educational shows of real people surviving in the wilderness to learn from, and go do the techniques and use the tools. All it takes is a 10.0+ EQ to hit anywhere to cause massive destruction nationwide. Northeast major cities and nuclear plants had to evacuate due to a 6.6 EQ that hit as far away as virginia. Be prepare! Especially for all the things you can not even think of!

Hey TA,

Cool thread, as usual. Did you see the paper from the Universities of Toronto and Aberdeen recently? Basically suggesting that ancient scars can still pay an active role in tectonic activity today (which would explain some of the things that have mystified scientists, and us, for a fair while).

This is actually a huge paper as it propses some fundamental changes to Plate Tectonics (or, at least, to our understanding of it).

Anyway, here is a link to the article......

Earths ancient scars could produce earthquakes in unlikely locations

Although not on the same track, i am wondering if this can also link in to the VT seismicity?

Sorry but can't help myself. When it happened was Bombay Beach put on Tsunami watch?

No, the 5.2 occurred on the Anza section of the San Jacinto fault zone, a southern offshoot of the San Andreas. The problem is, the aftershocks are creeping north towards the San Andreas and might set it off ( I hope not).


And if it does, then what? I mean, if the San Andreas is going to go, it's going to go, and all this activity is only signifying that "something" is just right around the corner.

I am about to introduce a new term known to few if any on ATS, but known to the volcanology scientific community. It is called a "distal earthquake swarm". This is a condition that occurs prior to many a volcanic eruption, and was discovered fairly recently by a couple of scientific researchers. It has been used already successfully in predicting a couple of volcanic eruptions.

I will leave it up to you, those that really want to know, to search this out for themselves and learn.

But the point here is this: the Salton Sea area has a volcanic history. It might be possible that this massive swarm is a new "distal" magmatic intrusion. They typically occur around 15 to 20 km from the actual volcano. I admit, it is a highly unlikely theory, but it is possible. Please, research this thoroughly before commenting on this post- and perhaps you will see why I am suggesting this. The quakes are at about the right depth and about the right distance. Still, rather unlikely.

And no, I will not discuss my "rig". Suffice it to say that it is the total summation of my computer system and my access to seismic networks that comprises it, and that is all I will say.

Update: No further big quakes yet, but small ones are still occurring- and again I say- pretty darn out of character for a measily 5.2.


And that's why I think something weird is up with this.

ETA: note that the USGS has now altered the depth of the main shock from -1.4 to 12.3km depth. Therefore, looks like the main shock was below sea level too.


Great application of seismic theory. I'll have to look into this myself.
