On October 17, 1989, at 5:04:15 p.m. (P.d.t.), a magnitude 6.9 (moment magnitude; surface-wave magnitude, 7.1) earthquake severely shook the San Francisco and Monterey Bay regions. The epicenter was located at 37.04° N. latitude, 121.88° W. longitude near Loma Prieta peak in the Santa Cruz Mountains, approximately 14 km (9 mi) northeast of Santa Cruz and 96 km (60 mi) south-southeast of San Francisco. The earthquake occurred when the crustal rocks comprising the Pacific and North American Plates abruptly slipped as much as 2 meters (7 ft) along their common boundary-the San Andreas fault system. The rupture initiated at a depth of 18 km (11 mi) and extended 35 km (22 mi) along the fault, but it did not break the surface of the Earth .
James O. Berkland is a Glen Ellen, California-based geologist and editor of Syzygy—An Earthquake Newsletter. He believes the gravitational tugs of the moon, sun, and other planets can influence earthquake activity. Berkland said he has accurately predicted tremors based on factors such as syzygy. "Syzygy" refers to the alignment of three celestial objects. Syzygy of the sun, Earth, and moon occur twice a month, at the full and new moons. At such times, gravitational forces are at a maximum, especially when the bodies are close together, Berkland said.

The other day I did post a reply about my 4 year old talking about having a dream about the Golden Gate Bridge breaking up and falling into the bay. I know maybe that's a little weird but I have seen 2 other people on ATS talking about the same dream they had!
Yesterday my 16 year old daughter came and told me that my son had been drawing on his Magna-Doodle..a bridge that was "cracking apart" and breaking into the water. These are really unusual dreams and inspirations for art for a 4 year old in my opinion and it is giving me chills. Can a 4 year old pick up on something of this magnitude? I cannot think of a single thing he would watch in his movies with anything that would have given him the idea and I don't allow him to watch TV programming in general..
Anyway..I know it's a stretch but I thought I'd throw that out there just in case anyone else had something similar.
