That would be like an earthquake in Massachusetts setting of quakes in Florida. It is doubtful especially since this quake is not on a fault so it is most likely volcanic activity.

No problem. I think another thread was started on the same quake, and they called it Sacramento area.

Where I'm from (the earthquake area) we call Sac the bay area, and the people who live there flat landers. At least we did a decade ago.

glad you specified Westwood LA.

There's a Westwood between Susanville and Chester, about 30 odd miles from Canyon dam epicenter.

You just became my new best friend. Someone who understands geography my way.

I grew up there and still have some friends there.


But I did leave there for a reason.

It's funny, but I probably know you, or know of you. Especially if you live in Chester.

Probably not related but there is a subdivision near Clear Lake, on that is near another volcano, sinking into the earth. I think Clear Lake is about 200 miles west of Greenville.

The distance is actually only about 400 miles apart.

Here is prediction to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy area for M 8.0+ to come also for stronger activity to "West Coast"..

Given the location of people posting, I should have felt it. Neither my fiance nor myself felt it. I was sitting here on ATS when it happened. *sigh*

Don't feel so alone, I did not know about it until my wife called and told me.
My dogs had been lying on the same spot on the bed for quite awhile and no jumping up and barking.
Come to think of it, no animals going nuts.
Fair Oaks here.

(Edit)
I've a suggestion to keep all of you occupied, learn to swim

I was driving up I-5 heading to shasta county and was in willows at the time. I did not get to feel because I was in the car. I'm so bummed!

An earthquake in California?

Imagine that.



Another watered down comment?

Imagine that.






And your comment was what? Pure?

Earthquakes are part of life on Earth. Especially in California.

Eta: oh, I get it. You like stars. Gotcha now.
Sorry.

I live in So Cali, and yes they are a part of life, but if you don't live here why be a jerk? N Cali does not have quakes quite as often as we do on So Cali, and especially not there. Surface quakes also feel stronger than deeper ones. Like the North Ridge quake was only a 6.4 and did allot of damage, because of the type of quake and its depth. People were killed, and again a 6.4. This was 5.7.
I bet if you have never been in an Earthquake and a shallow 5.7 hit and lasted for about 45 sec, you would be freaked out... I know my first 5.7 I was 5 years ago, but now I am kind of used to them. Once a quake starts you have NO IDEA what is going to happen, how strong they will get, or how long they will last. Also there is NO WARNING. You could be on the toilet, in the shower, on the freeway 100 feet up on a bridge, in an elevator, at the beach, on a roller coaster at Magic Mountain or Disney, you could be anywhere!

I know you kids are into the doom and destruction porn.
The thread title did not need the exclamation points.
This quake was considered "big" by noone.

It #ing california we are use to them.

I am a Geology major and from what I have learned, surface waves are more destructive. They have less rock, water, soil, etc to pass through so the energy flows across the surface of the Earth causing more "rocking and rolling" than those EQ's that are generated deeper inside the Earth.

They are keeping an eye on all these quakes at the Lassen Volcanic National Park. So far they are not expecting any volcanic activity as a result of the quakes.

So this is definitely an Earthquake swarm, but my research is telling me that it could mean 3 things. 1. The 5.7 Last night was the big on and all these today are aftershocks. 2. This leading up to volcanic activity. 3. These are all foreshocks for the/a big one. I'm inclined to think it's either 1 or 3. Everyone (experts) are saying that no volcanic activity is on the horizon. My gut is telling me it's 1. Thoughts?

When I was driving through north eastern Cali a few weeks ago I saw steam and smelled sulpher from alba or alma lake near lakeview (my mind is mush so ill post it when it comes to me). There had been a swarm of quakes through lakeview at that time. I know that it could have just been the lake and nothing more but it gave me the creeps. That whole area is dormant volcanoes so its good they are watching it. Seeing more small quakes coming through just now. Found a study to show quakes happened more at night. That's not to say other studies have contrary findings to that but t goes along with what I'm seeing on my end right now so I'm being biased in not researching this further. This study is a good one though. Has great visuals to give a sense of where we have come through the years with quakes (more frequent).

USGS comments on Lassen Volcanic Center:


Volcanic earthquakes are common, although most are too small to be felt. Non-volcanic earthquakes along regional faults also occur—earthquake swarms in 1936, 1945-1947, and 1950 included several events above magnitude 4.0, with the two largest registering 5.0 and 5.5. Ground surveys show localized subsidence of the volcano, probably due to motion on regional faults.


volcanoes.usgs.gov...

That's all fine and dandy, except if you look on the USGS map closely, you'll notice that both known faults terminate well before they reach the area of this swarm.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

The quakes could be occurring on unknown extensions of either the southern fault or the northern one. They could be and probably are.

So that's what I had been thinking (basically agreeing with scientists), until I pulled raw data and looked at spectro. That tells a potentially different story. Considering frequencies present during the larger quakes of this sequence, the quick frequency at which they have occurred, the extremely shallow depths, and other things, I think there could be just as much of an argument for volcanic activity as opposed to tectonic faulting activity as the cause of this swarm.

And I think someone better keep a darn close eye on it. So far I cannot say I have seen either VLP events or tremor, so I still give the edge to the scientific explanation of likely faulting/tectonic causes. But lookout- I have already seen ghost noting present- a typical volcanic signature, not usually present in faulting mechanisms. But hey, don't take my word for it. Call up yer favorite scientist buddy and get his/her opinion. This keeps up and that is exactly what I am going to do. Just a watchin for now.

I live in Northern California and we have quakes quite often and wouldn't classify them as rare up here. There are earthquakes every day about 50 miles from where I live at the geysers. There are also earthquakes on the coast at the very Northern part of the state. The Bay Area, where I live has earthquakes weekly. They are quite common.
