Seismologist Warns ‘More Earthquakes’ Coming To SoCal
CBSLA.com) ^ | April 29, 2013 8:12 AM

PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — A pair of minor earthquakes that rattled the Westside over the weekend are more common than one may think, but that doesn’t mean residents shouldn’t be prepared, a seismologist said Monday

The two quakes were both centered about two miles north of El Segundo, with one on Friday registering magnitude-3.2 and a second, less powerful magnitude-2.8 temblor striking the area on Sunday.

No injuries or damages were reported after either incident.

Dr. Lucy Jones of Cal Tech and the U.S. Geological Survey told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO these types of swarms are not exactly a rare occurrence.

“A magnitude-3 happens somewhere in Southern California a couple times a week,” Jones said. “This one just happened to be near a lot of people ’cause it was near LAX.”

According to Jones, the Los Angeles basin had experienced multiple magnitude-3 quakes and at least one damaging earthquake every year for seven years before the catastrophic 1994 quake in Northridge.

However, Jones did caution that the recent absence of a major quake in the Southland does raise some concerns.

“We do need to remember that the last 20 years has been a particularly quiet time in the history of Southern California,” she said. “The present quiet is not the long-term normal, and people do need to know that a some point, we’re going to be having more earthquakes than we’ve had recently.”

A USGS event map shows Friday’s quake was felt as far north as La Cañada Flintridge and as far south as Huntington Beach.

Maybe them 5-10 million illegals there can help clean up afterwards, huh? We could like ask them to help because we give them welfare and stuff? It could help a lot, huh?

I thought Earthquakes were just one of California’s seasons; Fires, Flooding, Earthquakes, and Riots...

Sadly, the illegals are more likely to pitch in with the cleanup than most other denizens of South Central.

A week ago there were over 300.

The one not discussed is volcanoes. They're mostly in the northern half of the state, but they are there. Mount Shasta last erupted in 1786; the volcano that erupted there most recently was Mount Lassen in 1915-17.

That’s about as prescient as saying that it is going to rain in the rain forest, or snow in the arctic.

Wow...brilliant. Bet he’s applying for more government grant money so he can expand on his valuable research.

I just went to the earthquake.usgs.gov site and on the right side, there is a statement: “External Research Annual Competition is Now Open. Applications are invited for research under the 2014 National Earthquake Hazards Program (EHP). (Link to “Grants.gov.”)”

are more common than one may think, but that doesn't mean residents shouldn’t be prepared,

Shouldn't the more likely something is indicate a greater need for preparedness? Who would think otherwise, even in LaLaLand?

Wouldn't that just take the biscuit. Stranded here...in the middle of earthquake destruction...3000 miles from all my prep supplies.

Stuck in Looney Lib Land with no food stash, guns or ammo.
