i hope you are right, everything in the crust is connected to everything else so seeing this still scares me since they keep telling us the whole thing may "unzip" all the way to Washington State.

Perhpas you should study the EQ map. This is less than a mile deep, in the gulf of California. It looks to be around 50 miles from the shore of Mexico. There wouldn't be a widespread tsunami becuase of its location, but based on its size and depth, there could certainly be a local one.

You seem to be the only one getting excited. Sharing information is not being dramatic. You, on the other hand are incorrect in your statements.

Likely, there won't be much damage and most likely no tsunami, but both are a possibility based on location and size.

Oh my goodness. RELAX.

You need to get a bit educated before you jump on people. YOU read the tsunami statement. It is issued out of Hawaii, and is relaying if there is a WIDESPREAD threat of tsunami. It is NOT for any possible LOCAL damage, which would be to the coast of MEXICO.

Stop attacking people.

Hahahahahahaha didn't they just have a mass earthquake drill?

Either this is classic Law of Attraction (and lesson of unintended consequences) or we got ourselves another 911. Only the drill was mistakenly a day early.

This is quake is actually in Mexico...don't think they were part of the shakeout. (but not sure)

It isn't uncommon to have this size of quake in this location. There were several in the past couple of years. There is likley NOT to be damage or tsunami from it, but is always a possibility.

I don't recall anyone saying "WE'RE GONNA DIE!!!"


In the earthquake community here at ATS, anything over a magnitude 6 is noteworthy and at least worth mentioning. I know that it sure caught my attention.
BTW it's not "In the middle of the ocean"...
Perhaps another cup of coffee is in order?
Peace Out

Hope this isn't a pre-quake. Pre-quakes are usually deeper though aren't they?

Millions to Take Part in Global Earthquake Drill
LOS ANGELES October 17, 2013 (AP)


Hoping to survive an earthquake, many Californians and people in earthquake prone regions around the world were gearing up for a major earthquake drill.

More than 24 million people, including 9 ½ million in California, have signed up to duck under their desks at 10:17 a.m. local time Thursday, cover their heads and hold on to something sturdy.

The exercise allows first responders to dust off their emergency response plans and transportation departments to practice slowing down trains in the event of real shaking.

The Great ShakeOut was first held in California in 2008 and participation has since spread around the globe. This year, Japan, Canada, Italy and Guam planned to join the U.S. in the drill.

"Everyone everywhere should know how to protect themselves during an earthquake," lead organizer Mark Benthien said.

I don't really see anyone talking doom here, just sharing info about a decent-sized quake. Also, the Gulf of California really isn't the "middle of the ocean".
