We just has a 5.3 it only lasted for 10 seconds or so, but what is making me think is the thread I recently read called Deep tremors and Big Earthquakes by ZWORLD. I cant help but notice the maps he posted, how the quakes seem to follow a specific line. The quake was approximately 20 miles north east of me. We are in a mobile with no permanent foundation, so we felt it quite nicely. Was mild, kinda fun.

The Geysers are always active, but I noticed there was a 4.3 last evening.

Interesting stuff, I'm hoping one of our resident quake experts will put their 2 cents in as well.

well when the geysers arent as active. which would mean a blockage, and as we seed in the case were they were pumping used fracking fluid back in to the earth it started causing man made minor earthquakes.

IMO that close to the san andreas fault if they stopped being active then all of cali has a problem

i grew up in so cal. im use to all the rumble and tumble.

I hope the Big One's not coming soon. That is going to be a terrible, but inevitable day.

It's a lucky thing that earthquake was in the sparsely populated coastal mountains. They've had their fair share of earthquakes up in that area....but if it was a 5.5, expect more to come.

5.5 magnitude earthquake shakes northern California
by The Extinction Protocol

February 13, 2012 – SAN FRANCISCO – A 5.5 magnitude earthquake struck northern California 50 km (31 miles) from Eureka, Ca. and 352 km from Sacramento according to the USGS. The earthquake had a preliminary depth of 32 km (20.4 miles) below the surface. The earthquake is the second to strike the region in 24 hours. On Sunday, seismometers recorded a 4.4 magnitude tremor with an epicenter near Cobb Mountain. Sunday’s earthquake, which occurred at 8:47 p.m., initially was reported as being 4.4 in magnitude, but was later dialed back slightly to 4.3 after it was reviewed by a seismologist, according to a U.S. Geological Survey report. Centered three miles east of The Geysers geothermal steam-field, three miles south southwest of Cobb and three miles west northwest of Anderson Springs, the earthquake occurred at a depth of two-tenths of a mile, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There have been no initial reports of damage from today’s 5.5 earthquake.

Here is the location from a 4.3 in Northern California from earlier this week. What is that facility that it was near? Looks very interesting from here in SF, as the video above references fracking. I have no idea what this site is, but it looks to be in the middle of no where -- right at the location of the quake. Thoughts???????

Data from USGS: 4.3
5 km ( 3 mi) WNW of Anderson Springs, CA
