A series of large earthquakes has rattled California over the last 24 hours, and scientists are telling us that the shaking was the result of “movement along the San Andreas Fault system”.


California Hit By 39 Earthquakes Within 24 Hours As Scientists Warn Of “Movement Along The San Andreas Fault”


As if things aren't bad enough, the author of this article mentions that "the Big One" could cause a part of California to break away into the ocean.


They claim that if a major tremor hits the area, it could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly. The discovery was made after studying the Newport-Inglewood fault, which has long been believed to be one of Southern California’s danger zones.



Cal State Fullerton professor Matt Kirby, who worked with the Leeper on the study, said the sinking would occur quickly and likely result in part of California being covered by the sea. “It’s something that would happen relatively instantaneously,” Prof Kirby said. “Probably today if it happened, you would see seawater rushing in.”

People who live in California are more than likely aware of a potential disaster lurking in their future..."The Big One." Perhaps this cluster of earthquakes is just normal activity, or perhaps it's a sign that something more serious is about to happen. Here's an article that didn't make the front page news. Could this be cause for alarm too?


The start of the San Andreas fault is hit by the 'slow one': Sunken sinkhole of bubbling mud is moving across Salton Sea destroying everything in its path



This natural-occurring geyser has been in existence since 1953, but recently began moving. It is releasing water and carbon dioxide. However, was only in the last six months that it picked up enough speed that it began to pose a threat to man-made infrastructure.

I thought that was a good thing?

Release of pressure and all that.

Fall in the ocean?
Is it just sticking out like a shelf?
I call nonsense.

No it is very low at the end by the salton Sea, they have always said if there was a quake in the right area it could inundate the Sacramento Valley or at least that is what i read long ago seems very plausible, most of the center of the state is below sea level.

"Subsidence"

I have a good friend with a Motorbike Shop in Sacramento, this is one of the few earthquake zones I pay attention to. I hope nothing comes of this, not just for him and his family but for all my ATS brothers and sisters over there.

Stay safe

Sooo not that I don't care for those in Cali.....but how will Vegas be affected?
Seeings how I live here and all.

Ok, here is the specific study referenced:


Paleoenvironmental records from a southern California coastal saltmarsh reveal evidence for repeated late Holocene coseismic subsidence events.


Evidence for coseismic subsidence events in a southern California coastal saltmarsh

This paper deals with a specific geographical feature and from my reading of it, it does not give the impression that all of southern California are going to 'slip into the ocean' during the next 'Big One.'

Yes, there are some areas that may be in danger of inundation:


Future earthquakes that result in subsidence of the saltmarsh may present serious hazards to the U.S. Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, Huntington Harbor, and other southern California coastal communities.


But it does not say or indicate that all of southern California is going to be dumped into the Pacific Ocean.

This is the area of the study:



Note, it is already partially inundated as it is a salt marsh and seems to be on a large plug that keeps dropping down in more or less the same spot each time it happens.

Or such is my take.

That is not to say that earthquakes dont present a danger in California, they obviously do, but this type of sensationalism is not needed imho.

if you look at the whole ring of fire the ONLY area that hasn't had a major quake is the western US coast line 5's and maybe a 6 here and there but nothing significant... i wonder what or who is keeping this area from actually having a quake that's in kind with north or south of OR and CA??

Has anyone else seen this anomaly in magnitudes and location??

Well, the big one is in the post, that's a given.

If you're referring to the Cascadian Wadati Benioff zone, then yes, that is one of the areas which is capable of producing a megathrust (M8+) event and ensuing tsunami.

Cascadia's history:


10,000 years of Cascadia earthquakes

The average is approximately every 246 years for the past 10,000 years or so. The last being close to 320 years ago; so in one sense, yes the area is 'overdue' but keep in mind that averages are just that and that it could be another 200+ years before Cascadia lets loose with another sizeable tremblor, or it could have happened by the time I finish typing this reply.

Based on a interview from early 2017 with the professor Matt Kirby.. He just explain what the worst case scenarios would be if a major quake would hit. Not saying anything about it will happen now or soon.
And if you read the original article it does not say California will tip into the sea like Titanic.. he say water will rush in

Doom porn article..

Vegas will prolly be ok. But the tidal wave from this would hit japan and kill millions.

Beyond it's immediate area of concern, hopefully the activity isn't going to landlock the CSZ any further. Or even agitate the Long Valley Caldera.

Research shows link between San Andreas and Cascadia faults


“It’s either an amazing coincidence or one fault triggered the other,” said Goldfinger. The generally larger size of the Cascadia earthquakes and the timing evidence suggests Cascadia may trigger the San Andreas. While Cascadia activation of the San Andreas Fault would imperil northern California, the complex system of natural fractures and faults off the coast of California could lead to earthquakes further south, which have the possibility to impact/damage offshore facilities in the southern part of the state. New studies confirm this potential.

“We’re dealing with continental collision,” said geologist Mark Legg of Legg Geophysical in Huntington Beach, California, regarding the cause of the offshore danger. “That’s fundamental. That’s why we have this mess of a complicated logjam.”

Not necessarily nonsense. It depends on how the shake... shakes out, if you will. One of the things that can often happen during a quake, is the lowering of a section of territory, relative to sea level and/or the terrain around it. If something like what is being suggested, were to occur, it would be a relatively minor incident in the geologic history of the planet. Stranger things have happened and will continue to happen, as long as the core of our world is active.

It will most likely be some right wing plot if anything happens. Sending prayers that everyone stays safe.

Stranger things indeed!

So I've lived on the East Coast my entire life and I remember exactly two very small EQs in the area. One when I was a very young child and my entire bedroom shook violently for about 2-seconds. Another a few years ago when I was sitting at my desk in an office in the city when everything rumbled loudly, again, only for a few seconds. That one actually cracked a building in half in Boston. Think the EQ was somewhere in New Hampshire, can't remember.

I know there have actually been several EQs on the East Coast, those are the two that I remember feeling near the ocean in my life-time.

Used to be all we ever dealt with here was a good old fashioned Nor' Easter and the occasional tail end of a hurricane. In only the last two years we now have tornado warnings and actual tornado's and when it rains... well, just about everything that never used to get flooded, gets flooded.

Sooner or later the ocean will reclaim its land for sure.

This article was written in 2015 but it is an interesting read.

Major EQ could hit New England

Unlike Californians who I supposed are used to the EQ's, when it happens here everyone totally freaks out!

Only time will tell who slips into the sea first!

A big earthquake in San Andreas Fault system of calif could not come soon enough and i live in calif.

If you look at the parts of the state with many of the democratic voters you will find that San Andreas Fault system runs right through the area they live.

Now i live out in the high desert area of calif about 70 miles away from the San Andreas Fault system and i live in a RV that is earthquake proof.
