lol, I see you managed to finally stop that thing in this latest video. Thanks. I remember asking you for that a week or two ago, but don't know if
you ever posted another video where you did that. I've been busy on other threads....
One thing Susan, have you guys ever considered earthquake insurance? Because if you are going to stay, better to get it ASAP before the USGS can
reassess their hazard maps. After the new fault discovery, they are likely to go up- if they haven't already.
All in all though, not sure it is worth moving for. The new fault is away from the main NM fault, and although it's an extension, it's not likely to
load the NM fault with any additional stress cause it is far enough away, imo. While it's possible this latest activity are foreshocks, I wouldn't
bet on it. Foreshocks just don't occur that often relative to Mainshock/Aftershock type quakes. True, Japan with the 7.2 first before the 9+ might be
so, but you're not in Japan on a subduction zone. And the point is that by now the mainshock would probably have happened on the new fault. And I
don't see any reason for this to be considered foreshocks for something to happen on the NM.
As with any major decision, a pro/con list can be very helpful. The more reasons you can list to stay, and reasons to leave, the easier you can see it
all in black and white before you. Compare. Decide.
Could be that living with constant rumbles is not the way to go no matter what, and maybe it IS time to go. I don't know. But good luck, and I wish
you wisdom and sane, conservative reasoning in your decision. Fracking could be a cause of the activity- but remember it takes a very long fault to
produce real big quakes. Don't give up the house over something "big" that is extremely unlikely on the new extension fault. As to the NM, that is
always a concern for all of us living in this part of the country. And even then some geologists think it may be deactivating and is no longer a real
Risk assessment. That's where you're at. Good to choose sources wisely.
