This may seem like a weird question, but do you think the sun has something to do with all these earthquakes? I mean it is approaching it's peak sun cycles. Not my opinion just a question.


Are you familiar with the ring of fire?

If not, google it and you will understand that the edges of the pacific rim are where several tectonic plates are moving against each other. The ring of fire is where almost 90% of earthquakes and volcanic activity occur. The sun doesnt have anything to do with it

Looks like the earthquake predictions in this video are coming to pass. They state it is due to the recent solar activities. I've followed several earthquake monitors on Twitter and I've not seen the activity that I've seen in the last 24 hours before.

Props to member Zeta Reticulan for bringing this video to my attention. This chilling video also states the full effect won't be felt for another day or two so maybe we are seeing the build up to something greater. I sure hope not but something is definatly happening and this video gives a very crediable explaination to me.



Yep. And the aftershocks here in Southern California havn't ceased. Infact they're are getting closer to the Cierro Prieto Faul line.

How does a 7.4 get downgraded to a 7.0?

Do they average multiple sensors?

Thanks

Yeah. I have been watching that swarm in Southern Cali/Northern Baja for the last 10 days or so. It has been pretty active down there recently too.

The 7.4 was the initial report. When I first reported it is had already been reviewed by a seismologist, but after further review and the second update they decided it was a little less than it had been.

I still thought it was 2 for a while because they had different quake ID's and were reported about 10 miles apart in their depth. They have since decided that even was a single event, but there was still the 5.8 and 6.4 just a few minutes before this was.

The movement in Cali that locked up is causing the western part of the Pacific plate to push harder.

Get ready, the quake map is lit up tonight...

So far on the first couple, there have been no widespread tsunami warnings issued, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centered has issued no alert, but there have been some local alerts issued. As far as this new one, it is more offshore than the first couple were, so we will see. Nothing yet on another tsunami though.
