Are you talking about the ones near Yorba Linda?
If so, not the same area. I do know that this area below the Salton Sea gets quite a few swarms, but it's been awhile as far as I know. I'm counting 38 now in this swarm.



So true, thank you for refreshing my memory as I was referring to Yorba Linda!

38 .... Hmmmmmm.... Well if they typically swarm then I will just chill and remain aware. :-)

I thought that may have been what you were referring to

The number is still climbing, one of the more recent ones was a bit deeper than the average (46.9 km as compared to 1-15km). Definitley worth keeping an eye on methinks, if nothing else due to the number and frequency.

We've now hit the 50 mark and magnitudes are averaging higher.

After more research, I definitely think we should keep an eye on this. Could be nothing at all, but the possibility is there this could turn into something much more!

Salton Sea area clearly has swarms just like this but the reason is what's alarming to me.

Much bigger quake coming in now...details to follow. Same area.
hmmm, no details, but maybe mag 4.0 is my guess.

Here is the USGS link Mag 4.0
(pretty lucky guess by me..
)

I don't know. Possible. I just hope all this 'crackin' doesn't move north to activate the San Andreas.

Ugh, another sizeable one is hitting now.

This one hit just over 1 millimeter of amplitude in the east-west direction.

Yeah, I'm with ya on that note!

The swarm is either volcanic??? Or.... The Big One???? Or...... It will settle down and go back to sleep??

I'm hopeful still! My nephews and brother lives close.... About to call them

Yeah...If you look just north of this swarm, on the northeast side of the Salton Sea, that thick red fault line is the very southern tip of the San Andreas fault.



Eff! Really big one coming...over 9 millimeters in the east-west direction..over 4 mm in the vertical.

It is still shaking... over 2-1/2 minutes so far.

My heart is pounding.. I hope this stops soon

Ahh, whew. Not one long one.
A mag 5.3 followed by a 5.3
edit on 8/26/2012 by Olivine because: (no reason given)

Followed by mag 4.9?

Very strange. Check out the layout and timing of those 3 quakes



(the magnitudes listed in the above pic have been revised to 5.3,5.3, and 4.9 for the third one)

No, east coast, but my Grandmother and other loved ones are just north of San Diego, not to mention millions of my human brothers and sisters.

I just get too nervous/worried because a devastating quake will visit the greater LA area one day..

Wow, they are getting stronger and closer together, aren't they??

This is like.....labor?

I'm about 75 miles north of the swarm and haven't felt anything. Weird. We just adopted a dog yesterday and he hasn't sensed anything either. He's been conked out on the floor. LOL

Hope this doesn't wake up the San Andreas....

Agreed!


And the depths are all over...from 0.2 km to 24.8 currently. Most of the hypocenters have been between 12 and 13 km depth.

Take a look at the poor quake cam at ABC7--it's saturated.
