I was looking at that and went to zoom in and there was a 7.0 in Mexico also. (60 km) depth.

Yea, Cali. seems like the middle man too, and honestly... it's only a matter of time.

That in addition to the one in Mexico makes me uneasy.
I hope this isn't a foreshock.
Scary stuff.
Question: What does the depth of the quake have to do with potential damage? I don't understand.

This is a lot of activity. Being in SoCal, I'm hoping there's no "activity" centered between these two any time soon.

Im no expert but im pretty sure the deeper the water, the more water is displaced, leading to bigger tsunamis.

Well the depth has a lot to do with the potential damage of an earthquake. It's basically like this.
0-70 km depth is classified as a Shallow earthquake - Meaning it's more likely to be felt or cause damage.
70-300 km depth is classified as a Intermediate earthquake - Meaning it could be felt, and most likely no damage
300-700 km depth is classified as a Deep earthquake - Basically meaning that nothing should happen but there is a very slim chance.

The more shallow the quake is the more damage it causes of course because it is closer to the surface of the earth and the S and P waves get there faster, and are more destructive. Correct me if I'm wrong though D:

Mexico quake is a shallow one......Was it above land or in the water?

Looking at the map, i would appear land.

West coast kinda busy today, eh?

It seems like there are because there are more of us constantly monitoring these quakes and posting about them on online forums.

I used to live in the area, and Bandon-by-sea itself got wiped out by a tsunami a century or so ago?

Best to all my west coast friends and all I do not know that reside there; this actually happens more frequently than more people expect. I miss my friend in Grants Pass OR (passed)--an older vet from Vietnam who was spot on in predicting the EQs at least 24 hours+ in advance....despite being a hundred miles inland

earthquake 3d is nice software program to use, they have free and pro version...can have it beep on EQ and view in a variety of ways the whole planet in 3d


California from Baja up, gets unusual amount of quakes daily all the way up to Alaska, maybe the most on the planet per day, considering the factors of, magnitude X amount, as the frequency is so often, you would think being there, would be like a constant vibration and reverberation ...
