The plates have been moving, and moving much faster than they have in years a scientist said--a paper on the Calexico 7.2 event.

There have been over 5300 small quakes or 'micro quakes' since that 7.2eq. That's crazy......


You can see that the quakes are following a near perfect line leading north... That southern plate will keep trying to move north until something stops it for a while. Then, it'll slip again in the future, or create mountains again...

I'd be alert for the next 72 hours guys.. If you live near these quake swarms, because SOMETHING is gonna happen. it's gonna hit something and stop the swarm, or it'll hit something, slip, and a big quake will occur. (anywhere between a 5.0 - 8.0) I'd tend to guess lower.. more like 6.3...
Who knows. Maybe it will simply go silent, and boom, its over for 30 years... (I hope!).

Stay really alert tonight though.. these aftershocks are coming in quick.. they COULD be fore shocks to something larger.

A few weeks ago, I noticed a fairly large quake had been deleted all togeather, not downgraded, deleted. I was like 'what the hell, someone bump into a desk or what?'




Oh those clumsy scientists.

I agree, I've felt for a while now that there was something building further north - not much further north than where the current quakes are centred. The activity has been moving north since the first Baja 7+.

I'd certainly recommend you ensure everything is bolted down and ensure where you're sleeping is safe from toppling furniture. Stay safe everyone.

Here guys try this one to keep track of the quakes it updates every 60 seconds... they don't have all the tiny ones on it but there is a huge cluster where they are happening. There is also a lava dome south south east in Mexico; not really that far away in terms of the quakes.

You can scroll down a bit and just choose the USA and Canada then zoom in.

Weird! I didn't see it was preplanned! Thats an even bigger coincidence!

Its working now with intermittent errors.


WOW, I sure wish I would have copied and pasted what it said HERE before the quake! The Twitter status page has changed its wording and it states its current status was updated 2 hours ago. I promise you that the wording was different then what it says now and it was LESS then two hours ago that it said so!

Now it's just even more curious!

Here's a report from the Source

Earthquake measured at 5.7 shakes Southern Calif.



San Diego County Office of Emergency Services made a round of calls to all cities in the county and found no reports of significant damage. Louis Fuentes, chairman of the Imperial County board of supervisors, said he had no immediate reports of damage.

"As soon as it hit, my wife said, 'Grab the baby.' My daughter ran out to the back yard," said Fuentes, who was in his garage in Calexico, about 30 miles east of the epicenter. "It thumped really hard."

The quake was an aftershock of the deadly Easter Sunday magnitude-7.2 quake that shook Baja California and Southern California, said Egill Hauksson, a seismologist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. He said the epicenter of Monday's quake occurred in the same zone of the quake in April.

And twitter is down. USGS_EQ_SoCal is blank now. I checked a few other accounts too and there are no tweets anywhere. Strange.

Yea most of them are blank right now. Must have to be because of what I posted just a minute ago.

That is interesting! Looks like someone knows what they're doing.

Yes I know, and what I'm saying is THAT is different then what it said less than two hours ago when they claim to have posted that update.

The after/fore shocks sure seem to be slowing down finally. I would encourage everyone to watch the video that Zeta posted. Very interesting indeed!

I'm about 100 miles north of Ocotillo...and there have sure been a lot of aftershocks (foreshocks?), but being about 100 miles away, I've only felt a couple of the bigger ones up here.

But the real problem, on knowing whether these are all aftershocks, or maybe foreshocks to the BIG ONE, is that they can't ever tell you that until after the fact. If the big one comes along sometime later, then they say they were foreshocks. But if a bigger one doesn't come, then they say they were aftershocks. Reassuring, isn't it?

But that doesnt mean a massive quake wont hit.

He was talking about the kid who posted a video saying the big one was coming and telephone poles may fall over because of it.

It was downgraded after the thread was created.

Oh geez, it's on the USGS somewhere... I remember entering something like 'baja quake' and something else in google. I'll try and find it. It's like a small 'report' by some geologist. I also saw one for some small swarm more north of California...

It had a few maps/data plot images..

(This is one I saw on the Baja 7.2-- it didn't have newer data though, and is from the Southern Cali Seismic Network, and has some AMAZING images of huge cracks in the earth from a helicopter...

Yeah well I take Edgar Cayce's 2010 earthquake prophecy seriously...
I could care less about a kid's predictions but he's right nonetheless...
