We have had a handful of folks trying to predict this impending big one out in CA. I think they are picking up on something, but I don't think it's going to happen when they say it will. This is only the warm up.... to something bigger, which will probably happen before the new year. I'll be surprised if we don't see a large one out there in CA by then.

After living out there for a few years though, I don't get too excited when I see 5.0's or below that. It was normal to me to be getting ones like that, sometimes for a few days in a row. My family there doesn't even sit up and take notice until it gets bigger than that. Until then, we play the waiting game.

Not sure if the 104 hour window has started or not, but even if it has, this EQ does not measure up to his claims.


I don't like how Mitchell Coombes plays on people's fears and emotions with his doom porn. He gets people all riled up by announcing that we are getting close to the 104 hour count down, nothing happens, then he or his followers make up excuses. I think that he, and any other person telling people "get the hell outta there" is being irresponsible. A woman on youtube used to make predictions, got some poor guy to believe in her and he left his home, job, and everything thinking that he was going to be under water. ::shake my head::

Mitchell Coombes and others of his ilk just love to bilk the sheeple..I used to think there was hope for Humanity...
But.. if they are all this ignorant and believe in stuff like this. All hope is lost.

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 . I suggest ppl should.take this warning seriously . This is very concerning california is experincing a lot earthquakes recently and if i live near the tremors i would pack my bag and move in land. Take care all


If god is going to give a warning... then unfortunately i find that very hard to take seriously.


I am not saying god gave me a warning, but some other folks did. But funny thing is that the quakes that strike cali 5.1 was deleted, it was not a real earthquake.

So has there been anything recent on these quakes ?

Look people the world cannot end/earthquake/war/famine/fire/any catastrophic event until JAN 2 2013. Yep Jan 2 2013.
Why you ask? Because I will be darned if :
1. I miss the Twilight Breaking Dawn part 2 premier in Nov (I will not miss seeing Jacobs Abs!)
2. The next Hobbit premier in Dec (Hobbit, need I say more?)
3. I refuse to deal with the end of the world/Zombie Apocalypse on Jan 1 with a HUGE hangover!!!

Everything will just have to wait until Jan 2 2013, when I am darn good, ready and sober!

Isn't the end supposed to start on December 21st? LOL
I think you are going to miss the new years party my friend.
Oh.. have you noticed the crack pots have added more time to make money??

Hello everyone, sorry for getting into the conversation so late -- this is actually my first post ever on ATS


Welcome, if not to ATS at least to posting on ATS


I have read the thread and the statements made about how these 5.1 quakes in California were supposedly "phantom quakes". Before now, I have never even heard of such a thing, or even known that an erratum page containing phantom quake data existed on the USGS site. If this is true, I would think it would be an very rare event.


No they can happen with any quakes certainly of a larger magnitude. I am not sure I can explain the exact technical details but in brief it is something that happens when the computers that read the data detect a large increase/decrease in signal. They then flag this as an earthquake. Obviously if this is picked up by a California seismo it gets flagged as a California earthquake. Another thing that causes 'phantom' earthquakes is transmission breaks. The transmission stops and then gets restored (could be in microseconds) and the change in signal level is interpreted as an earthquake by the computers. It happens relatively often for example in Yellowstone in winter when the microwave transmitters get iced up.


would that not mean that the respective seismographs in California actually did pick up at least some sort of seismic activity in California? Can anyone explain to me how a seismograph can detect seismic activity in an area where no seismic activity has actually occurred, when the said triggering activity is actually thousands of miles away?


Absolutely, they did indeed pick up a signal. The waves from large earthquakes can travel around the world not one, not twice but three or somethines more time before they are finally disspiated. The waves passing through do not qualify as a quake in the area they are detected because they are literally just passing through. There is no hypocentre to detect.

There are many links on this page about earthquakes and seismograms, but in particulare make sure you visit the first link as that has videos of the passage of seismic waves through the earth which might give you a better overview of what goes on.


The patterns I have seen lately coming in through ENS have become very unusual for about the past 18 months or so (just before the March 11, 2011 Japan quake) but I have noticed an even sharper turn in strange patterns throughout the past 2 months now. This pattern is on the rise in areas rarely affected by seismic activity.


This is not so easy to answer but bear in mind that stress moves through the earth in patterns. Some of these can be very long term and as I always delight in pointing out written history is just 67 microseconds in the 24 hours of Earth. Scientific examination of quakes at current levels with modern seismographs occupies just 1 microsecond. There are several earthquake cycles (and 188 days is NOT one of them) which range from 18 to 55 years or therabouts, and some over much longer spans of centuries - as for example in the incidence of Mag 9 quakes in Cascadia. I mean no disrespect when I say that it really is not possible to discern patterns over an 18 month to 2 year period.


properties of the event in question will be updated, such as depth, epicenter, finalized moment magnitude, precise lat and long, possible location uncertainty measurements, etc.


I should point out that in reality these are not actually finalised for anything up to two years!


]Having a real-time quake notification and an archive of tens of thousands of those notifications, this is not the first time that I have noticed suspicious deletion of potentially moderate quake activity and I have not seen it occur anywhere more than events that take place in and around Yellowstone National Park -- imagine that?


I may have covered that perhaps? Ice!


the extent of which the information not deemed 'appropriate' for public consumption is controlled.



As far as I am aware the only seismic information that is removed - and I mean from the seismograph data and not from notifications - is data which might lead to foreign powers or other agencies gaining knowledge of the signature of naval vesels operating in certain areas. This is a very minute amount of information, the release of which may compromise US national security. Since there are VERY few seismos in the ocean this is hardly a problem.

Quite so, just as Puterman said.

In detail, the compressional waves all arrived in California as a several-second-long burst that shook the ground and therefore the seismometers in a way similar to a local earthquake, fooling the seismic network. Rather than radiating at about 6 km/s from a local source, the waves swept across California at a speed of perhaps 15-20 km/s traveling away from Russia. It took some human intervention to figure out the mess. It is not hard to program the network to get the right answer, and I expect the next similar event will be treated more accurately.

I'm confused....maybe because I'm new here and not exactly understanding the hype.

I've lived in California my entire life. A 5.X earthquake is strong, but nothing to get hyped up over. And there are literally hundreds of earthquakes happening all over the world all the time.

In April the Gulf of California had a 6.9, and on the shores of Northern Cali they had a 5.1 and 5.2 in July.
Our beaches occasionally get 3 & 4's with no cause for alarm, a 5 isn't going to cause a tsunami...Am I missing something?
