On average the experts conclude that the recent Cascadia Subduction Zone quakes weren't relevant to changing the fault for better or even worse.
May be the same with these California ones. Hopefully they aren't for-shocks but certainly California won't break off into the see as some may think it will if they are for-shocks to a significant seismic event.
“People think the little quakes are a good thing, that they release pressure, but that’s not the case,” Metzger said. “Sooner or later, Cascadia will release and there is no way for us to predict when it will happen.”
“That Cascadia quake will range between 8 to 9.5 magnitudes,” said Ron Metzger, geologist professor at Southwestern Oregon Community College.

We watched a movie 2012 the other night. It was awesome seeing CA crack apart tilting into the sea. That's one way to clean up all the crap off the sidewalks.
Always some callous persons wanting millions including innocent babies dead as long as it's not where they live.
Actually....is it? really think here. when they grow up their lives will be crap most likely right?
If you stayed in your home at least it would be defensible. The National Guard would arrive in a day or so and restore the law, and likely provide food and water. I just always wondered who's doing any good with this bug-out theme..... the people, or those selling prepper goods.
Need to know: Zones One phrase often thrown around when talking about Cascadia is “inundation zone.” That is where water will fill an area very fast, as in an incoming tsunami. Another term is “liquefaction zone.” This is where the soils are saturated with water, meaning there is no bedrock below but rather fill dirt. For example, downtown Coos Bay is a liquefaction zone.
According to Metzger, most of that fill dirt in Coos Bay is actually sawdust. “Once it is shaken, it loses cohesiveness so everything above will sink,” Murphy said. “Buildings will sink. When you’re downtown in Coos Bay and a big truck passes, you feel the ground shake. That is because of fill dirt and when Cascadia happens, it will be much, much worse and will go on for longer. “If you’re on good, solid ground, don’t worry. In an area with fill or high water tables – move.”
“Know your routes and where you will need to go because there will be no warning,” he said. “Get to high ground because water will be coming soon. If you’re in your car, stop. You won’t be able to drive because the ground will be buckling. Stay in your car to protect yourself until shaking subsides.
I tell people not to sit in your car after waiting for traffic to clear. Get out and run. Water is coming.” A group at the University of Oregon is looking into early warning possibilities for earthquakes, hopefully to give people 30 seconds or even a minute to prepare. Metzger believes this will be developed eventually into a phone app, but it isn’t there just yet.
“Be prepared folks,” Murphy warned. “It’s coming. Have the mindset of preparation.”

Are we sure this isn't just the vibration from the approaching migrant caravan??

Where are you going to bug out to? The roads will all be bumper to bumper gridlock. Then when it gets dark they will be opportunists robbing people in the gridlock. Food will quickly be stolen or diminish. .

Isn't there a link to live seismographs? (Excuse my ignorance if that isn't what its called) but I remember seeing a youtube page where you could watch the readings in full time...
Anyone have a link?

no offense but youre always wrong on these.......
I like your heart and how you try, but theres a problem........
People come on your threads who have a VAST knowledge of these sort of things and correct your mistakes and you never seem to take anything from it......
If you want to get better at this I think its pertinent to take into account people who know what they are talking about.
All in the last few hours a lot of movement be ready.....im sure this has seismologist on edge but we'll wait and wait and see what happens.....
