Mojave California and Ocatillo CA just had (little) earthquakes w/in past hour
Edited on Mon Mar-21-11 01:00 AM by Snoutport
Mojave 2.7
Ocatillo 2.
Cobb 1.1

Things are still a little shaky here on the ring of fire!

(but I edited in the world (little) in my title as to not worry people)

4. Cobb had a 3.+ earthquake already this afternoon so it is a little active
but probably perfectly normal.

12. I went through the USGS data not to long ago...
Looking for trends regarding the recent quakes, and I must confess, I found f**k nothing. When the scientists say they can't predict quakes I don't blame them at all. Its one of the most chaotic systems I have seen.

13. always quakes up at Cobb and the Geysers (nearby)
also your list had quakes from parts of California 400 miles apart.

not exactly a pattern with that, especially since you only showed 3 quakes.

2. Those are the really common ones we have all the time
the ones we never feel.

3. Anything below 2 isn't even felt.
I bet hundreds if not thousands of those happen every day in the same spot.

5. Mere tremmors I'd say.
I'm just grateful we've survived the 19th and 20th without "The Big One" happening in the NW-USA.

6. Not to worry, my dear Snoutport!
Those are not to worry about, at all!

Those are so tiny that you'd have to be sitting very quietly right on top of them to even feel them a little...

:hi:

8. I was in an elevator on the 8th floor of the UCLA Med Tower for the
biggest aftershock after the northridge quake...and grew up in Alaska. So I've ridden out a few shakers. I was just looking at the USGS website when these popped up so I thought I would share.

Geyser and Cobb sure have been hit by swarms of little quakes lately. It is an interesting map to look at though.

9. OK, you do know what's what!
Some people just freak out at the littlest quakes...

My apologies!

10. lol...yeah...that was a pretty scary one! They had already condemned the building
and the elevators just shut off and bounced there in the groaning structure for a few minutes. YIKES!!! Just sitting there bouncing and hearing that rumble come up through the elevator shaft.

11. My brother was in Northridge and I was in the East Bay for Loma Prieta.
It's just California.

I love getting quakemail from the USGS. It's a great service.
