I hope everyone & everything's okay ...

However, sometimes, the depth is revised ... So lets see!

Just a little increase in the last few days but...

The pretty little dots have been getting bigger.




Actually, I have been following the whole Coast for a few weeks and Alaska, although normally a bit shaky, is getting a little more intense lately as well.

I live in los cabos, didn't feel anything..........but it's far away from here. I'm probably the closest person to that area here on ATS. Most part of that area is desert. If I feel an E.Q. here, will let you know.

This bares watching for sure.

The Gulf of California is an extension of the San Andreas fault, and those who study geology are aware that this entire are was formed through violent seismic activity on the San Andreas and surrounding fault lines.

I look around and all I see is a lot of seismic activity going on right now along the west coast - from Mexico all the way up to the Pacific NW - I can't help think about Edgar Cacyee's prophecy either, especially after the Japan Mega thrust quake and tsunami. I also keep thinking about an EQ of unprecented destruction striking at some point in the near future - possibly one that ruptures along the entire west coast like a zipper (Juan De Fuca/San Andreas) from the pacific NW down to Mexico.

It's not a fantasy either folks - the history channel recently aired a 2 hour special aptly titled "10.0 Megaquake" and this was among the scenarios they discussed...

it's weird because we almost never have earthquakes, it's been a long time, but lately seems like we're having more and more little earthquakes.

I was just coming here to make this thread, but I see you beat me to it! You also did a lot better than I would have, posting photos of the proof.

This I think may be the beginning, as I said last week, I think that area specifically is going to be where we see the next "big one"

That doesnt mean I think its going to be a disaster as in doom to the world, but itll be in the area of 7.2-8.1. Within the next 3 weeks.

Just a hunch, nothing more.

I felt it here in Hemet, CA....thought it was one of the 2-3 mags that we get here a lot....the fact that I felt it this far north means it had some power to it,

i hope VENTURA is home in BAJA and hope hes shaking in his boots...i hope this isnt the beginning of something worse..ut if it is then i hope only VENTURA feels the destruction...everyone else i hope stays safe...

Well, seems as though the west coast has been getting a little more active lately...

So in context is this of significance ?

what I mean is,how commonplace is a magtitude of 5 or more on the day to day basis and in the grand sheme of things ?

Is this unusual activity ? I appreciate the depth was quite shallow, are they normally much deeper ?

As I live in the UK I have no schema for this, so was just wondering

I believe it, just like california - the GOC is overdue for a major seismic event.

For anybody interested on the geological history of this area here is some good reading, click on the link for more details but here is a snippet:

www.sci.sdsu.edu...





Geology of the Gulf

Briefly stated, the Gulf of California is an elongated depressed block along a zone of major, roughly parallel faults. It is a complex fault zone in which total relief, i.e., the elevation difference between the sea floor of the Gulf relative to the mountains of Baja California to the west and the Sierra Madre of mainland Mexico to the east is greater than 10,000 feet.

The San Andreas fault is considered a major element of this fault zone. The fault presently disappears beneath the alluvium of the Imperial Valley, but is thought to continue southeastward into the Gulf, merging into the East Pacific Rise along the Gulf's axis.

Didn't feel anything in North La County, but it isn't a surprise considering the reports of animals washing up along the coast. Somethings makes me feel like this is a foreshock, pure speculation though...

Didn't feel anything around here, maybe I slept through it, but the radio DJ around here always gives us "earthquake alerts" and he's been right everytime.

Where are you located in relation to it?

Curious

Congratulations muzzy? Don't you mean commiserations that it did not get up to the level of October last year?

Mag 5 quakes happen in this area.
