If you go to the RSOE Website you can zoom in on the area affected.

If no lifes are in danger why don`t you go and take a walk on the beach? It`s probably not going to be a huge tsunami, but it`s a problem for people who are on beaches or piers.

And the strongest wave is heading to Hawaii, not the continental coast.

I'm not an expert at Geology (have taken a few courses in post secondary for my major) but I don't think Hurricane Sandy would affect the plate tectonics and fault lines on the West Coast.

They didn`t say, but I think Sacramento is safe.

Well all of these big quakes makes you wonder when California gets its turn at a major quake.Seems like they are due for one.

And another one was recently added too.

That makes 14 in total so far.

It's good that we're getting all these aftershocks. The pressure is slowly letting out, when there is a big one and then silence.. then you panic.

Goodness me, this is crazy.

Again, thoughts and prayers to everyone.

My brother lives in Fresno (he won't really be affected by anything unless its really big), but I went ahead and alerted him. I'd rather him know things were happening than him be completely caught off guard.

check out www.haarpstatus.com.... Its been moved up north from where it was down south yesterday. This might be due to pressure shifts?

There have been a lot of 5's for aftershocks. Is that normal for a 7.7 earthquake, to have aftershocks that big?

So there's been about 10 aftershocks.
Seismologist saying:
The first big quake was a bit of vertical motion, which is more concern for tsunami, but aftershocks have been horizontal shifts

Yeah but if the plate slipped by nature or design, wouldnt that be similar to Japan and the slippage there? And wasn't there a 9 a couple days after a 7 point something? I'm still going to be worried when and if all is well tomorrow and I hear some good news soon here.

As far as I understand, the initial big quake is the release of pressure build up and the aftershocks are just the faults settling, after they were shifted so much. So they are kind of like after shakes. Of course it's possible a bigger quake can happen again soon. Hope not.

Not entirely sure about any of this.
