Hope all is well in N. California, I lived in Berkeley, Ca and went through the 89 World Series Quake, that was enough for me..Eureka is not that close to the Bay Area.

Looks like precipitation overlaid.

So just weather.. if we're talking about the same objects!

Fox has just reported a 6.5 off coast and a second one of undisclosed magnitude, with ruptured gas mains and power outages.

www.foxnews.com...
" A 6.5-magnitude earthquake hit northern California Saturday afternoon, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The earthquake's epicenter was 22 miles west-northwest of Ferndale, Calif.

Ferndale police tell Fox News they saw some superficial damage to the city hall building, and some telephone lines were disconnected, but no major damage or injuries were immediately reported.

Ferndale is 265 miles north of San Francisco"

Lets hope they dont cause earthquakes elsewhere in california, sometimes the faults have a domino effect, will keep up with it as well as i can.

Precipitation as in flooding, or what? It seems to be in an odd shape.

Nope, just regular rainfall from a radar feed...

..Like I say, assuming we're looking at the same thing (just a bit east/inland from the flashing quake areas)

I see what you mean now, the weather must be thinning out to give it the odd shape.

Let's hope this isn't the prelude to the Biggie. Not that we get a choice, but this is a pretty bad time for California, and our country to have a major earthquake, not to mention the loss of lives and property that always go with such events. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Wasn't there a big one around the time of the great depression? Maybe I should get out the timewave calculator and see if anything matches up?

Doesn't seem to have caused any major damage, or fatalities. Just business as usual, for California.

California native here, just wondering why this is such a big deal?
I would love to have one that size where I live.

Your post reminds me of people who think they want the end to come to civilization. It's easy to say but not as easy to face.

If you lost a loved one from a big quake, I bet you would think differently.

From the site:
"A meteor crashing through the Earth’s atmosphere could be responsible for sightings of a fireball over Montreal Thursday night, astronomers said. Montrealer Humberto Dramasino witnessed the sight as he was driving home in the city's St-Laurent district around (07.01.2010) 7:30 p.m. "I saw a fireball just below the clouds," Dramasino said. "It was losing pieces in the air while it was flying and it was very, very fast." The spectacle lasted no more than a few seconds, Dramasino said. Montreal-based astronomer Andrew Fazekas, who runs the website thenightskyguy.com, confirmed the description of the object matched that of a meteor....."

When you click on the event icon, you get a dialog box w/ a "details" link in the lower left corner. Once that opens, click "event description" along the top of the page to get more info on each event. (BTW, this is just the first few lines, there is more info available).

I love that map! So much doom & gloom fun..... Enjoy!
