As if it were floating!


Exactly. This has been going on since the creation of earth and will continue till the earth dies. Earthquake swarms are nothing more than that. An uptick in earthquake frequency and it happens quite frequently but by no means is an indicator of something bigger coming.

Earthquakes cannot, in any shape or form, be accurately predicted whatsoever.

Very significant swarm, if we can call it that.
Appear to be increasing in magnitude and
remain frequent. Wondering if populated
towns are feeling these quakes - certainly
hope they are keeping a close eye out.

Where I am it is Sunday the 17th already, and I just woke up to see the earthquakes are continuing in Nevada, and getting stronger. Just what could that indicate for the caldera there? Full fledged eruption? (I'm ignorant about such things)

I would like you all to not panic, and be aware that the movements are vocalnic and that is not good. I I trust that you all will/do use best judgement in the coming time for anything that could happen today or 50 years from now.To help you just watch quakes.globalincidentmap.com... -- or don't. I hope the best for the outsome of whatever is to come in the next minute, to the next 100 years.

Well, if their having all these quakes and aftershocks in japan, wouldn't it make sense that we would be having them out it in Cali and anywhere else on the west coast too?

These aren't quakes. These are the elite blasting away holes for underground bunkers.


0.0km depth huh?

When they are poorly constrained like that they usually don't have enough information yet to decide how deep it is. It isn't that unusual to see them with no depth at first, especially smaller ones.

Whoa, ok, so I see that Nevada's really no stranger to medium strength earthquakes. I've started observing the USGS-map only a day ago.
However, a quake has been registered two hours ago, magnitude 4.1 and a depth... of zero? ( quakes.globalincidentmap.com... )

Did a bit of researching, without any satisfying results though so I'm asking you guys - isn't a magnitude 4.1 quake with 0.0 depth comparatively devastating? Or just in general, what's up with such shallow earthquakes? As said, I've got no concept of this whatsoever, but such shallow earthquakes do seem a bit odd to me...
