After a relatively quiet period of seismic activity in the Los Angeles area, the last five months have been marked by five earthquakes larger than 4.0. That hasn't occurred since 1994, the year of the destructive Northridge earthquake that produced 53 such temblors.
A light earthquake occurred at 2:38:05 AM (PDT) on Wednesday, June 11, 2014.
The magnitude 4.0 event occurred 16 km (10 miles) NE (37 degrees) of Barstow, CA.
The hypocentral depth is 2 km ( 1 mile).
Earthquake experts said 2014 is clearly a year of increased seismic activity, but they said it's hard to know whether the recent string of quakes suggests that a larger one is on the way.
"Every earthquake makes another earthquake more likely."
"That's definitely way more than the long-term average," Jones said. "Is that something to worry about? If we knew that, we'd be predicting earthquakes."
So, the data seems to show that there is no correlation between solar activity and earthquakes.
Often I notice that at the time of a full moon, or new moon, sometimes it's quieter than normal
"It dips to the southwest south of Bakersfield, goes up to vertical through the northern San Gabriel Mountains, then flips over to dip northeast from San Bernardino all the way down to the Salton Sea."
A Good Morning shake up to help people wake up!
Somehow I don't think it would be reasonable to blame this one on the full moon.
Thats just 2014 though, might be different other years, might be worth a look.
Is 49% enough to make predictions on though?
