People just LOOK AT THIS!!!

earthquake.usgs.gov...

since that big 7.2, there have been 30 smaller quakes around the San Andreas fault. Granted most are in the 3.x range, but 30 in less than 5 hours???!!! That's crazy!!!

Some people believe the pacific plate could be destabilizing. If this the case then soon we should see a quake in the east pacific, near the indies or japan or that general area. It would be a rock back and forth

The geologist at the conference said that people NORTH of the epicenter felt the quake more.

And those SOUTH of it felt it less.

If you look at the map there's plenty of landmass to the North with populated area's, but just the Gulf of California to the South. At least 6 towns bore the initial VII wave until it propegated outwards across the State.

Northern California quakes are not after shocks but are known as trigger quakes.

Just a snippet that they keep saying in the broadcast of this all,

Good demonstration of sideways Lateral movement from this quake. The Haitian quake also showed similar characteristics along the Faults where lateral movement was obvious by road/wall/building displacement.

I don't think there is a tsunami.

It appears to be somewhat inland.

Also, even if it were slightly out in the bay, the shape of the bay would limit the spread of the tsunami significantly.

these quakes are just the beginning my friends! Soon all secrets shall be revealed, and all of our quests for truth will be at long last ended. However it reminds me of a alanis morrisette song," its like rain on your wedding day, its a free ride when youve already paid, its like learning the truth before you die in apocalypse, who would of thought ... it figures!"
OK! so it doesnt rhyme at all, but you get the irony I hope. We all die like dogs, ha ha ha ha .....whoo ha ha ha ha ha (long emphysemic wheezing cough here) ha ha oh whatever!

Good news, the ABC broadcast said that Tijuana has very limited reports of injuries and I have not heard of any deaths.

I was worried about that city. If Tijuana is fine, I think we can consider ourselves lucky, so far.

Let's hope this was the climax.

A lot of earthquakes around the world being reported lately.
Yes I know they happen all the time.
But I have noticed, I may be the only one, that they are in the news a lot more lately.
I'm expecting to here of an earthquake in the Mediterranean in the next couple weeks. Another highly active area.

Someone should start a thread with updates on quakes. Kind of like a quake watch. We can then plot them on a map and see if any patterns emerge.

I live on the New Madrid and we haven't had anything happen on it since 1812 at least nothing to speak of but it seems that the major fault lines are all starting to have quakes now for whatever reason. I still lean toward CERN and their LHC.

Last time I checked,

earthquakes are common in California.

But hey, let's freak out anyway.

This is billed as the "largest quake in 18years" in this region.

18 years creates an atmosphere of "uncommon" in terms of human life span.
