I'm praying for rain
I'm praying for tilde waves
I want to see the ground give way
I want to watch it go down

My advice, learn to swim

This "early warning system" was activated a few weeks ago in California.

www.caloes.ca.gov...

Hopefully it will not issue too many alerts for small tremors, like it did last week. Maybe too sensitive at the moment?


That list in the OP is pretty impressive on size of tremor events. A bigger one doesn't have to be THE big one but something is coming it seems.
ETA

I am still thinking the Magnetic field movement of the poles is pulling the magma around in pattern changes that are natural but that we haven't witnessed since civilization began. Or, perhaps a 2nd or 3rd time?

how many posters on this site look at earthquake data and are qualified in understanding it? do you have any training in seismology? The OP does this, and regularly posts info on this topic. Those of us who have been here a while, know that he doesn't do doom porn, just facts. and He doesn't post all the time, so when he does, it's worth looking at.

Your post do nothing for the topic and if you care nothing about it, then posting here only shows how shallow you are. there is no prize for the race you are in.

Thank you as always True, in Southwestern Oregon...its nice to have a little insight now and again...volcanos, faults and beauty, crazy mix.

awful sentiment.

Please God have mercy on the Pacific coast and grant them protection for the forces of nature.

Hi, TA!

Thanks for posting!
I've been trying to keep one eye on things, but there's so much going on right now.
Was just thinking about Banda Ache the other day. Perfect time to catch people unaware, when they are busy & distracted!

For anyone who didn't know it was December 26, 2004.

en.m.wikipedia.org...

Banda Ache, 2004. Fukushima, 2011. New pattern developing?
Hubby & I have been feeling antsy lately but didn't know why?
I remember before Fukushima, how many rude, snarky remarks were being posted on ATS! I guess that's one thing to keep an eye out for! Anymore than usual for today's new normal anyway! 🙄

Central & South America, Puerto Rico...
Pressure from the western, south Pacific?

WOQ

Judging by your signature, you thrive on fear. I hope the readers of this thread put that into consideration.

It is the exact opposite. Those of us who have been here for some time trust TA very much!

Yes , it Has been Foreseen .........







I think that was a 6.4 so they are close to that...

Whenever and wherever- you get a situation where you have increasing quake magnitudes over a short period of time in the same area, it is cause for concern. Because at that point no one knows if they are going to just keep getting bigger. And that's exactly what we had here- and therefore I made this thread to alert people of the situation. Fortunately nothing greater has happened from that point, as of yet.

It takes time for more information and analysis to come out. Right about the time I figured out that these were intraplate quakes, I saw the post over at PNSN which corroborated that with moment tensors and I reported it in this thread right away.

If you study scientific papers, you would understand that scientists believe that over time, bouts of these kind of quakes create additional pressure on the locked zone in Cascadia, because of stress redistribution. The stress gets released from quakes in one area, but this causes adjacent areas to take on at least a portion of that stress. The locked zone is a huge area on the Cascadia fault which is basically stuck together and cannot move as the two tectonic plates try to slide past each other. This creates the most dangerous situation, as it continues to build pressure until one day that pressure releases in the form of an M9+ megathrust quake.

It is possible that one M6 quake in the wrong spot could possibly send the Cascadia fault over the edge, as it is most definitely in the time window for a recurring mega thrust earthquake. Here we had not just one, but TWO M6 quakes, and worse, in an increasing magnitude scenario. So yeah, I think that was worth a thread.

Right now the stress released on the Explorer plate with this sequence of large quakes is redistributing, and part of it is getting sent to the Cascadia fault. Who's to say that in two days, like what happened in Japan in 2011, this redistributed stress could trigger the Cascadia fault to rupture?

Because it very well could. Let's just hope it doesn't.

Truly the worst Christmas present ever, and the effects would be felt country-wide in various ways.

Lol, it's a song about the filth of hollyweird and California in general.
Needs to break off into the ocean and sink

there's just as many seismologists saying a lot of small quakes is good as there are saying lots of small quakes are bad.

just more fear mongering

He doesn't post all the time, so when he does, it's worth looking at.


seconded.

TrueAmerican is a legend in these parts and I love his earthquake threads!
