The fault line is in Yorba linda, but it interacts with the faults that run through LA. I am a 5 min walk from the San Andreas fault line In Santa Clarita Valley Right next to Six Flags Magic Mountain.


Hey Neighbor! I'm in Newhall right off the 14 fwy!

It's not on the San Andreas, it's directly on the southern portion of the Whittier fault, which will do a LOT of damage to Los Angeles if it sets off anything higher up the fault.

I just realized that we really have no EQ during the Winter


I hope that its just the heatwave causing this and not anything else....

Has anyone else been feeling incredibly dizzy, or having sudden dropping feelings? Sort of like when you ride an elevator, and then get off and feel that odd dropping sensation?

Okay really getting off now to get water.

I am not an end times person, but respect your POV. Here in Southern Cali , we are warned on a daily bases to be ready for "The Big One" Its coming, its not a question of if but when. When we have a little shaker here we talk about it and forget about it. When you have them back to back you can't just forget about them. It is very rare. That is why I am wondering if there is going to be a big one soon or if the plates are just letting off some built up tension. Its hard to tell. On the news they are saying the same thing, could we be in for "The Big One"?


I have a question, has anyone mentioned what fault line its coming from ?

I know they say the San Andreas one is due but here in Los Angeles, the Whittier Fault would cause 100x more damage cause it lies directly under the city.

It looks like the Elsinore fault on the USGS map.

I live in British Columbia and we have earthquakes all the time, most of them are not felt. It wasn't until I started checking our Earthquake/Geological site that I realized it wasn't uncommon for the ground to be shaking quite a bit. I suggest you check out your site -

earthquake.usgs.gov...

I get with the whole 2012 thing people are hyper-sensitive to this kind of thing but if you look at the yellow dots (which means last week) and you'll see how much the ground under you is shaking. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

We are constantly told along the West Coast that the big one is coming and one day it will but other than being well supplied with water, food and first aid, there is not much we can do it about it so relax, life is great....until it isn't...

Take care!

Tluna: EQ is short for "earthquake". No need to feel "blonde". We all had to learn the lingo

Hmmm, the real time map has it on the Elsinore fault. The map you posted
has it on the Whittier fault.
Interesting. They're all tied together. I never knew that.



The Elsinore Fault Zone is a large right-lateral strike-slip geological fault structure in Southern California. The fault is part of the trilateral split of the San Andreas fault system and is one of the largest, though quietest faults in Southern California.

Most likely due to the high pressure. I have inner ear issues when there is a pressure change as my Eustachian tubes don't function properly. If you experience this often please go to the doctor as this could also be Meniere's disease.

You can throw the whole belief that "animals can predict Earthquakes" out the window (or maybe my cat is just too damn lazy) On both occasions last night and this AM she was no more than a couple feet from me and not so much as a twitch or bat of an eye before or during the jolt. Although I will say that out here in the Orange County canyon country 30 miles or so from the epicenter, the local birds are eerily a bit less "vocal" outside than usual, and although it is pushing high 90's, the air has a very "stagnate" feeling to it (as if you were sitting in a hot closet.)

Two back-to-back like that is a bit unusual, but they are small by SoCal standards. I lived in L.A. for three years and experienced a couple. I also experienced that 7.1 in Joshua Tree Park in around 2000, but that was very far away. It was scary as hell, cause it lasted three minutes, but the shaking where I was was less than the 4.x tremors I experienced. I'm not saying a 4.3 won't set your heart racing and get you up out of your seat (and if it's right under you it can send you about a foot in the air off your seat, which I experienced!), but it's really the norm for that part of the world.

Two happening so fast are probably related, but unless there's a bunch more I wouldn't worry too much. Just check that your EQ survival gear is ready to go and be safe.

We have earthquakes all the time, that is common, but not so many back to back. I don't even think about quakes that are under a 5.0 but with them coming so close together makes me worry a little.


having lived in calif. most of my life, if it's NOT a 5.0 or bigger, it's just a normal day in the sunshine state
we "roll" with these events...get it roll?...ok ok lame

From what I understood, it is the Whittier fault- right between Yorba Linda and Carbon Canyon.
My parents live right there on top of it (in a house on a slope) and this is making me very nervous.

It is the Wittier fault, just looking at it on the map:

earthquake.usgs.gov...

If you mouse over it, it tells you the name of the fault lines. All three tremors are right at the same spot. The depth has been decreasing. The first was 10km down, which is pretty deep. 6km for the most recent, which isn't so deep, but that was also the weakest. Hopefully just a bit of shifting. If there are more happening then I'd start to be more nervous. Right now this could just be some of the typical jiggling that goes on in the region.
