Skip to comments.Another earthquake in same spot in Yorba Linda, Ca.?

Thrre quakes now recorded around Yorba Linda since last night at 11:30 pm I just fealt this one this morning at 9;30 am in Costa Mesa.

Somehow, quite appropriate.
18 actually, ranging from 1.1 to 4.5 - two of which were 4.5, all pretty deep for this region on the Whittier fault. Going to be some interesting reading when they are done writing the event report.
The 4.5 last night was fealt by the guys here at work and I fealt the 4.5 this morning...The 3.5 was a little while ago this morning.
Anniversary of Nixon’s resignation and he’s buried in Yorba Linda.
My wife was asleep during the one at 11:30 last night. It woke her up.
I was awake, and didn’t even know we had a quake.
Is this the run-up to CA sliding into the ocean.
Can I start selling my oceanfront property in Nevada? :-)
Nixon’s head was one of my favorite Futurama characters
That dawned on me...after I posted.
Wellllll.... Now that you mention it:
Let’s hope this guy is wrong:
This is from the same fellow who correctly called the big one in Japan last year, so you might want to stay tuned!
Good boy, crip... now when the big one comes, I'll let you live--
And I am send you... a t-shirt for you to wear at my campaign event... this evening.
Any quake that registers less than a 5.0 is usually of no concern; unless, as in this case, they look like the wind-up for the BIG pitch!
My family had their home destroyed in the Whittier Narrows quake. Moved to Yorba Linda. Oops!
Friday night at Angel stadium...the Mariners and Angels. Would not want to be in the nose bleed section when Yorba gets Linda!
You haven’t lived, until you’ve experienced the nose-bleed seats at Candlestick!
Wife fly to Anaheim (from Oregon) yesterday to attend a seminar. She’s felt both of them - her first experience - and she is not thrilled.
Now that’s scarey! ;^)
Should be “flew”.
The Sydney-California prediction is both idiotic and geologically impossible.
And once claimed previous prediction "successes" are analyzed objectively they often are far less impressive than they seem.
That being said, it's possible (though not likely) this sequence of earthquakes are foreshocks to a 6.8-7.2 magnitude earthquake on the Whittier Fault, which would not generate a tsunami, but would most probably be the worst disaster the U.S. has ever had.
We’re gonna get it. Whether it’s in L.A. or S.F. it’s gonna be devastating. Loma Prieta was bad but deaths were relatively low in number. I think that if it hadn’t been for game 3 of the World Series at Candlestick, the Cypress Freeway collapse would have killed hundreds of commuters in the collapse.
Guess there was a forth at 11:02 when you were typing “thrre”....
This is from the same fellow who correctly called the big one in Japan last year, so you might want to stay tuned!I just did a google search, and I haven't found any links from before the earthquake referencing his "prediction". I also found references to several other people who claimed to have predicted that same earthquake, but all of those references were after the fact as well.
Tectonics. “Can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em.”
Silly GOOgle; try Ixquick some time.
The Meteorologist’s name is Kevin Martin, and here’s what he’s got to say about the recent quakes in CA:
Having said that, I surely hope that you are correct about this all being a tin foil hat full of hogwash.
It will be kind of interesting to see if anything comes of it though.
I thought it was sort of interesting that we did have a significant although not catastrophic quake in Mexico within a day of his predictions for a major W coast fault release.
He said to look for “clusters” of small quakes concentrated around a fault line as a warning of impending major quake.
We’ve seen those all the way from the Baja to the Alutians since early Spring.
Who knows? Time I suppose will tell.
Kevin Martin is not a “meteorologist” he’s a fraud, kook, and plagiarist.
Clusters of small quakes on a fault prior to large earthquakes are not some sort of brillant insight of his, it’s a long-known geological phenomenon, “foreshocks.”
There are two problems:
1) The number of clusters of small quakes that turn out not to be foreshocks to anything greatly exceed those that turn out to be foreshocks.
2) Many large earthquakes happen with no foreshocks at all.
If people would stop wasting time reading the nonsense of people like Martin, Berkland, Deyo, etc. and spend the same amount of time reading the USGS pages or going to their local library to read seismology journals, they might actually learn something about earthquakes.
Tell me... about it!
