At the very least this quake should serve as a reminder that everyone living near the coast along the ring of fire should be prepared(which does seem to be the case).edit on 5-1-2013 by TheWetCoast because: question was anwered before I finished my post.

the fault line on the west coast of america is sliping.
it will not take long until the rest slips.
then the west coast falls into the sea.
if I was you and you can do it.
I would move to the east coast.
it could happen any day now.

I'm interested in seeing if Phage was right when he wrote down January 27th. Will a big earthquake strike on or very near that date?
Does someone have a link to what Phage posted? If Phage is giving info about a possible date, I'm getting the heck out of here.edit on 5-1-2013 by phoenixlights321 because: (no reason given)
Earthquake Canada says the first quake is likely associated with "relative motion across the Queen Charlotte fault system offshore" of the BC coast. The agency says the surrounding area of that plate boundary has hosted eight earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater over the past 40-years. It also notes, the quake, "is related to that Haida Gwaii earthquake three months previously, and is an expression of deformation along the same plate boundary system."

Do you ever hear a sound associated with an earthquake? I ask because I have had multiple instances of sudden, very localized sudden jolts with a loud bang. They happen instantaneously, almost like an underground bomb. A loud bang, jolt, windows and house rattles, and it's all over. I have only experienced the most minor of quakes in Georgia, a couple in the 2.5 to 3.5 range. I was immediately aware of what they were, but these sudden jolts, I have no idea.
Tried reporting them a couple of times, but never gotten a response ir seen them show as reported events. At a total loss to explain them.

What you are describing sounds like small, shallow, close quakes. I always say it sounds/feels like a truck hit the house. In my experience, they are usually 1-2.5 mag whithin a few miles of me.
You won't see those small ones listed on USGS....you need to find a local monitoring network for that. If you feel comfortable giving a general location, there are several on here that could find you links for local monitoring.
Also...are you near any fracking operations?
