I think the 7.7 triggered the reading in CA. Unless someone here personally felt them, I wouldn't worry too much over them disapearing.

This is it folks, the guy who posted a video about earthquake hitting california 9.0 could.come true, he even said god will give a warning.tsunami from or near japan and in two weeks after that cali will be hit with 9.0 .

Take care all

Like many times EQ of this magnitude was predicted, hope next time people take my warnings more seriously ..

My recommendation would be that you do not take too much notice of people predicting Mag 9 earthquakes in California. Whilst I am not saying they cannot happen it is extremely unlikely. ~Mag 8 is about the max for California, with ~8.5 for Oregon extending down to Northern California if the southern end of Cascadia was to go and a ~Mag 9 if the whole Cascadia fault was to go.
California is not experiencing any more earthquakes than is normal, the only exception this year being a small blip during April/May. You can see on this chart that other than that, and of course Baja California in 2010, the last 2.5 or so years has been steady in terms of earthquake numbers.
You can see the same thing when looking at the energy release. All steady except the few larger quakes. No increase is discernible that could be considered out of the ordinary for the region.
The mag 7.7 was not unexpected either as there has been an ongoing swarm at shallower depths for the past month or so.
Next up - Vanuatu probably.

The 7.7 EQ in Russia was 388.9 miles deep! The deepest EQ's recorded are 400 miles deep which is located in the upper mantle and usually happen due to Earth's crust being loosened and mixing in with the upper mantle!
If that area collapsed in; it could be the beginnings of a new super-volcano and with all the ash ejected from it and eventually blocking out the sun, a new ice age! Sorry, I was thinking out loud in that last sentence. lol.
