I mean, come on... it's the smallest quake anyone has ever recorded... and it lasted how many days/nights? It has been detected how far away
I really don't know why they said that. 1.5 is far from the smallest recorded as Yellowstone for example is frequently sub 1 and earthquakes are
recorded down to Mag -3 - look at all the system problems global incident had when it's computers did not understand a -0.3 and posted it as a
Given the right geology a 1.5 can indeed be felt and for example in the UK often is, also in Northern Ireland. I would expect a 1.5 to be felt if
shallow and directly under habitation in the area.
As to lasting days and night there could well have been a series of very small ruptures which affected or resonated in the extensive water bodies/sand
& gravel in the area (maybe possibly).

They are not accompanied by sounds in the sky. LMAO. Please, I lived through the Northridge earthquakes, the Whittier quake, the Palm Springs
Quake, name it, I am in my 50s. Pick a depth, pick a size, I have seen it all and I am not the only Californian on this site, those sounds do NOT
precede, occur during or happen after an earthquake.
Sorry but your statement is not logical. The geology of the two areas is completely different. It is a known fact that the central part of North
America produces a radically different result during earthquakes than California.
Understand the Richter scale and you will understand how minute the mini-quake was, it wouldn't move in water in a teacup. It is a joke.
Again you are not comparing like for like.
I would also remind everyone that the P-wave of an earthquake can travel at up to Mach 32. Given the correct geology i have little doubt that
incidental energy, in other words energy refracted or reflected and slowed by formations could indeed produce sounds and in other areas this has
occurred as well. In particular talk to people outside Canterbury NZ where sounds have been her immediately preceding an earthquakes and then take
into account the nature of that area's geology which in terns of gravelly substructure is similar.

There is no 188 days cycle, sorry. 188 debunked

This is just scientists doing what they do best...giving a scientifically logical, fallacious answer to pacify the public and hide the truth.
I guess being a conspiracy site you would have to say that.

Since when does it take 86 hours to check the seizmos?
Frequently actually. I see huge numbers of new quakes being posted for areas such as Cali or Alaska right to the end of the 7 day listings. It can
take several months sometimes. If you look at the ANSS listings you will find new earthquakes appearing continually over several months. In some
areas like NZ with many small quakes it can sometimes as much as double over the following six months. Increases in numbers in such areas in excess of
30% are not uncommon.
I regularly note between 5% and 10% increases in many areas on listings that it is possible to access.

Just got to your post. Thanks. Just what I was saying.
