So far only hearing that a town near the epicenter may be quite damaged,

Please guys take care over the next few days as there is a chance a bigger one could happen within 3/4 days.

I really hope everyone in the affected areas are ok, but I'm afraid that might not be true (at least near the epicenter). Hopefully this won't lead to a chain of events with the San Andreas fault.

Disneyland would be one of the LAST places I would want to be stuck at during an earthquake. I'm dead serious too. I had fun when I went there a few years ago, but that place is creepy as heck when you think about it.

Did I just hear right? They were interviewing a woman who said the chance of a 7.3 or greater earthquake in the next 3 days is 5%? Also at the end of her interview she said that it's been potentially upgraded to 7.2?

USGS upgraded quake to 7.2 just now.

Big one.

Things seem to have settled down now. I haven't felt anything moving for some time now, and no odd vibes or other energies floating about.

The more I think about this, and read about it, I am starting to become really curious.

Now, I need a real geologist or someone that is a elite amateur to help see if this theory has any merit. I was considering writing a thread but , I'll hold off until I gather more info first.

Ok, think of how Baja is separated from mainland Mexico by a narrow bay. Well, after the "Big One" hits Southern California, and it metaphorically "Falls off into the Ocean" as is always said; won't this cause present day South-Western California to splinter off WITH Baja and form a even longer strip of land?

Essentially just extending the "bay" in between Baja and mainland Mexico by another few hundred miles/km?

Admittedly I am only a amateur so I am seeking more knowledgeable opinions about this possibility?
