i really hope not, because if it is its very scurrrry.

These are reported in the Quake watch thread, i'd go check that out first because there are some very knowledgable people in there that can give you your answers


EQ's in the Mag of 4's dont really need their own threads
(and i'm not trying to be rude, but they are always reported and discussed in Quake watch 2010 almost as soon as they happen)

its more worried me how the 3.5, on a different fault occured just 10 mins or so after the one further south, as if the faults are letting go of tension like the domino effect.

Yeah, I don't want to keep posting in multiple threads, but the 3.5 is probably not remarkable, it's an expected aftershock from the 6.5 the other day. Timing did come right after the SoCal quake but I don't think there's any relationship. We should expect more aftershocks, which is completely normal.

That SoCal quake had some foreshocks that I commented on about an hour before the main shock (or what we hope is the main shock.)

Anyway, yeah you should follow that thread.

Although I do not wish this to happen at all, If the big one does strike, we wouldn't know about it till at least 10 mins after. First of all, it would be a really big one and we would feel it as if we were having an earthquake (ok we being the people living in the states that boarder Cali.) As for the rest of the world we wouldnt know till A. someone posted it online, or B. some breaking news happened on TV. (or in the rare occasion we are speaking to the person in Cali just as it hits. but even then we may just chalk it up to the line cutting.) The Cali poeple would be too busy saving thier own lives to worry about posting online saying OMG we are having the big one! So granted it looks bad having this 4.something quakes and all, we dont know if it has already struck or at least we wont know till someone (sadly most likely the government run news outlets) tells us. I am happy I live in Canada, We will know of it 20 minutes after it happens. maybe even the next day. depending on the size of the town we live in. I pray that it doesnt happen in my lifetime, but If it does I dont know what I can do to help. I hate feeling powerless to help and that will be exactly the possition I will be in. So here's to wishing for the Big one to stay small and meaningless.

On the contrary, I think we would know right away. (Although an official report would take a bit.) You would be amazed how many people immediately whip out their mobile devices during the first few seconds of a quake (when communications wouldn't be down yet.)

It typically takes less than a minute to hear something on Twitter and 5-10 to hear anything from the USGS. Use an online Twitter client like Tweetgrid and run an ongoing "earthquake" search, results come in near real time.

These were simply the most anticipated and predicted after-shocks.

Back to the conspiracy garden on this one gang.

LOL.

Yeah i agree with the poster below you on this one, plus Equake updates within 15mins, and twitter, almost on the minute - we will know. I check every morning on equake in case i've missed it.

Guys although still very unprepared CA has been planning for the big one for a very long time. I don't think the big one would be as bad as everyone is making it out to be. I just wonder who all these so called earthquake proof buildings would handle a big one. I think many houses would be fine. But it's older towns and areas of cities that would be hit most hard.

If it is the "big one" then most of the buildings are goners. If they don't fall down then the stuff in side them will do enough damage to people inside them. The old buildings will collapse. Houses would crumble. What didn't fall down would probably be hit by a giant tsunami.

If you are talking around a 6.5 again or a 7 then if it hits the right area you would still have massive devastation that would be in the 100's of millions of dollars to repair damage. That alone would cause chaos that we have not see yet.

At least this is my opinions from what I have learned over the years.
