wow, so now it looks like beading activity is incoming- or rather, just went by. This is confirmed on 5 stations. Something is stirring for sure down there.
Did you guys know that there is a massive geothermal plant there? And I just realized that well injection might have possibly stirred a monster. Holy crap! I probably will get no reply, because they know this! If that thing blows up, and the geothermal plant was eventually deemed to be the cause... OMG.edit on Sun Aug 26th 2012 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)

I live in Colton CA we were making complaint call to the air quality board about a sulfer smell for the last few weeks well they stated that off the record they believe it is quake activity that could be causing this smell but the federal government had split up their responsibilities to where it is not there job to look over these types of occurrences we are definately keeping our ear to the ground peace.

Keep us posted.
At this point I don't find the Cali quakes unusual, but I'm not a geologist.

Im thinking more and more this could be volcanic... to some point... it all seems so weird, with this 4.0 just now well east of the swarm location... is it possible a large pool of magma is pushing up or somehow trying to squezze in between the faults? Something is defin up and i gotta get up for work i na cpl hours! UGH!
Found this about Mount St. Helens seismic activity before it erupted in 1980
The first sign of activity at Mount St. Helens in the spring of 1980 was a series of small earthquakes that began on March 16. After hundreds of additional earthquakes, steam explosions on March 27 blasted a crater through the volcano's summit ice cap. Within a week the crater had grown to about 1,300 feet in diameter and two giant crack systems crossed the entire summit area. By May 17, more than 10,000 earthquakes had shaken the volcano and the north flank had grown outward at least 450 feet to form a noticeable bulge. Such dramatic deformation of the volcano was strong evidence that molten rock (magma) had risen high into the volcano Link
There are volcanic mud pots near the Salton Sea.
The Salton Buttes are a line of four small volcanoes on the southeastern shore of the Salton Sea near Calipatria, about 100 miles east of San Diego. Scientists estimate they last erupted between 6,500 and 10,000 years ago -- which at least technically classifies them as active
Unstable magma may find a path to the surface, which would result in the buttes erupting, oozing lava and spewing ash. Though ash clouds like those seen in Iceland last year is a remote possibility, a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey recently said in an article from the Palm Springs Desert Sun that "I would not anticipate an Iceland eruption, but we didn't anticipate Mount St. Helens either." Even if an ash cloud is small, it could still wreak havoc and alter flight plans. "The way the ash gets to San Diego is if we have Santa Ana winds," said Abbott.
