FYI....

In response to the action along the Cocos Plate yesterday?

They are separate. 17 seconds apart. What are the odds of that?

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. If I lived in California I would be paying close attention that’s for sure.

Considering the area, a relatively stable section of the pacific plate.

Cue the beach boys music.. I know a couple of the surfing nuts from San D are itching for sunrise. Heck, they might be nutty enough for night surfing.

So far, I have not been notified of this quake, but it is not always instant.

Seemed more like a quick shake to me.

Not much of an S/wave with this and South40’s description kinda confirms that. Not sure why considering the magnitude and depth?

ABC7’s online drum seismo is just odd as well with little S/Wave depicted given the size and depth.

If there is any quakes up around Seattle and or down by Chile then I would be greatly concerned.

I had a 5.8 quake last week about 20 miles from me here in Alaska.

They adjusted the second quake to a 4.7 but got to tell ya right after the second one they listed a 4.5 near the Salton Sea but took it down. You can kinda see a third quake on the multiple recorders I have seen.

Yep saw that one for you guys last week. The Cocos was extremely active yesterday but pretty quite along the Nazca plate down in Chile.

There has been some volcanic activity near the Salton Sea recently from what I remember.

Looks like there might be a bit of commonality even if it's just the offshore thing. Coincidences are becoming harder to ignore. :)

Odd for sure, thanks!

I wish you were not living in California right now. I got a Japanese feeling... This jolt is a warning.

Kind of suspicious of the unrelated part, 17 seconds apart, in the same general area???????????????
That's two dots wanting to be connected by some mechanism.

Thank you Sara. I too wish I were not living in California and I will leave one day. But at an elevation of 900’, I believe I am safe from sunami.

Thanks for telling me that you are at a high elevation. At least I won’t have to worry about you if something happens.
