DOOM PORN. Hell Yeah.

If you live in one of the following areas: Ventura, San Bernardino, San Diego, Orange, Kern, Imperial, Los Angeles, or Riverside County, be aware that there is an increased likelihood of a large EQ.
With that being said, you should be prepared. You should have an emergency kit put together and a plan on what to do to get home if you're at school, work or another place you frequent.
Be Prepared, Not Scared!

Stay Safe ATS


I live in Kern county. but well away from the fault
I have been ready for 20 years. i live in a RV with solar panels and i see little that can happen to it unless the ground opens up under me an i fall in.
since i never go anyplace i don't have to worry about what happened to this guy.

They actually have an early warning system, though it's not a prediction per se. The early warning system has the ability to detect an earthquake, seconds before one happens.

UC Berkeley knew about the South Napa Quake seconds before it happened. (Wish I did too)

Five seconds before the South Napa Earthquake struck, UC Berkeley’s ShakeAlert detected the quake.

The university’s early warning project is intended to give residents a heads-up before an earthquake strikes and damage occurs.

The thing is... the Salton Sea area has swarms from time to time. It's completely normal.

When the swarm began last week, people ( myself included) on ATS were talking about it and watching it On Quake Watch.

There is absolutely no way to predict a bigger one is coming. We all just noticed there was an uptick and over 200 quakes in less than 24 hours. To me the actual threat has passed but it's worth keeping an eye on. If it begins to swarm again still nothing may come of it but then again, you never know.

There have been swarms there in years past. I remember West Coast from ATS creating a thread here and there about it.

Let's be real though.. California should always be on alert and have a plan.

Since when did the USGS issue warnings?
They report seismic activity which cannot be predicted.

The USGS did not issue a warning.

nope..... they just made an vage prediction until oct 7.....if there is an EQ before that date they are insured that nobody can blame USGS....
( had the case of the Italian seismologes in mind several years ago they where prosecuted for not giving an warning in time)a reply to: Phage

But in a tweet posted on Friday, seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones said the swarm “is over & increased risk mostly gone”.

The most recent quake in the swarm above magnitude 2.4 was a magnitude 3.2 temblor that struck around 11 a.m. Thursday.

It's over for the most part, but quakes are still occurring in and around the Salton Sea area. The fear is it could set off the southern end of the San Andreas fault- and if that happened, there's no telling just how far it might rip. And the farther the tear, the larger the quake.

Agreed. It is still something to watch. There have been 2 since, one just disappeared as I refreshed the page on USGS.

They did have a volcano blow off in Mexico on Saturday I think, could that be contributing to the bunch of tremors they are having in that area?

The link doesn't mention the USGS or +7.0. Just a bit of a stretch.

I actually monitor earthquakes very closely. Call it a hobby of mine. Anyways, I have noticed a huge increase in the amount of earth quakes in the California area. I believe that the big one is coming and very soon. It is not over like some believe it is just the beginning. Just in the last couple hours there has still been some rumbling. In fact the odds of it happening in the next couple weeks are shockingly high.

Seismologists added that the chances of a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake occurring over the next week is between 1 in 100 to 1 in 3,000. Without the swarm, however, the average risk for such an event striking on any given week is 1 in 6,000.

This is going to be very interesting if an earthquake of this magnitude where to happen. An event of this size could cause a trickle down of earthquakes that could affect the Cascadia fault line and the volcanoes on the ring of fire.
