Since Virginia was mentioned here, I brought my post from last night on the t35 thread over.
Everyone expects a big one in California. But what if it isn't first, or sets off a bigger one farther east? There must be lots of pressure built up
around the east coast too. Was Virginia a sign?
When Chile had their big one, we heard the 'Seneca Guns' here in PA about 15 minutes before their quake happened! Lots of banging & scraping, like
two cars broad siding each other, the whole length of the car! Didn't know what it was at the time, thought it was an accident & noted the time.
Found out later. I posted about it then. If Chile can 'domino effect' all the way to PA... Maybe a good size west coast one would cause even more
damage more easterly. The New Madrid is in the' middle' of the dominoes! The whole line could go. The 35th parallel?
'Middle... middle of the US; brook...Mississippi? Would still be felt on the east coast too. Like in 1811, maybe worse. 200 years of pressure have
built up. Just saying... & thinking out loud....
From last night:
Okay WOQ, take a deep breath!
Lost my post three times trying to go back & forth to tabs for info.
Tech challenged person + computersaurus = lots of stress!!!
When I read the new post I had a light bulb moment. Admittedly, it's a pretty dim bulb, but I had to throw this out there...
What if it's Virginia? Not quite 35/36 latitude, but maybe a little off on purpose.
There is a Middlebrook in Virginia. I don't remember if that was mentioned before. But not in California.
First Virginia eq 8/23. First posting 8/26. Maybe that uncommon eq made them realize there was trouble. The east coast is not prepared for eqs. I'm
thinking too of the video someone posted of the USGS dude saying they down graded the eq from a 6 or larger, because of the nuc plants. Plus D.C.,
N.Y. & Philly are some of the most heavily populated cities on the east coast, & would probably be affected.
The post today says, "...additional foreshock within...hours". So there has been a quake they are calling a foreshock, which will be recognized as
Post on 9/1, "So Cal. The ground is already moving as well." As in..'.in addition to'...besides the place that they are expecting the big one.
Implying there will be other quakes in that time frame? Or seemingly related ones? Like Colorado & Virginia? Now Texas looks like it's on a roll.
Before Virginia's big one, for three days, there was a swarm of good sized quakes in Vanuatu. And New Guinea, Japan & Sumatra each had a moderate one
the two days before. Just about everyday that Virginia has had some, so have Vanuatu, Japan, New Guinea & Indonesia. Now they are starting up again
fairly close together.
Thoughts anyone? I hope I'm wrong!
