Skip to comments.7.4 Earthquake Hits El Salvador
Posted on 08/26/2012 10:27:30 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache
Huge 7.4 massive damage reported....
Brawley CA (southeast CA) has been having swarms the last day or two. The last one was about an hour ago at 4.9. Brawley has had earthquakes in the past that have been sizeable and done major damage. I live about 100 from there. I know there is no such thing as earthquake season...but still...
The U.S. Geological Survey is reporting that a strong magnitude-7.4 earthquake has struck off the coast of El Salvador and a tsunami warning has been issued.
The earthquake was located 86 miles (138 kilometers) south-southwest of San Miguel, the USGS reported on its web site.
The temblor took place at a depth of 32.9 miles (53 kilometers).
A tsunami warning is in effect for Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Panama and Mexico.
I bet all of the HAARP theorists will be coming out of the woodwork now with a shifting storm right into NOLA, massive earthquake, possible tsunami, earthquake swarms in So.Cal, all taking place the week of the RNC.

Thank you for the link.
Ping! Looks like the entire Americas is going to see increased activity!

Regarding the current unusual California earthquake swarm :
Dr. Lucy Jones, USGS Seismologist said that there had not been a swarm like this since the 70s and before that the 30s. It will take them a day or two to get a better read on this unusual swarm because the earth is a different soil, different mix which makes it difficult to get an accurate reading.

Fairly deep and a ways offshore. Baring a massive tsunami, the damage hopefully is limited.
Any live TV links? Even Salvador TV?
Your breaking news was in a thread about 200+ posts into it at 12:51 AM while I posted mine 20 mins sooner in Breaking News....seriously...who gives a crap? I posted the story where it wasn’t posted.
Whoa, LOL! Relax a little. You missed my entire point as well as the story.
Just try to write at least a smitten of information. Or if you can't write,
copy and paste something more than just a title, something with a little info to accompany
your hurry to be first.
Meanwhile feel proud, you're number one.

My earthquake alert ap is going off so much I can’t sleep!
Whole lot of shaking going on!
(CBS News) A 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit 78 miles off the coast of El Salvador early Monday, the U.S. Geological Survey says.
No tsunami warnings were issued, and the temblor's epicenter was deep beneath the ocean's surface, the USGS says.
There were no immediate reports of damage or injurires.
There was a report of someone feeling the quake in San Salvador, the USGS adds.
I recommend everyone stay alert up for at least the next 3 - 4 days. Be glad you're a prepper for those that are!
A 5.4 in the Gulf off Rocky Point... that’s getting a little too close to home! Gonna take some valuables off the shelves before I go to bed, because we shook during the 7.2 in Mexicali a couple years back.
I am in Texas but just interested in earthquakes and hurricanes. Will be praying for you guys out that way. I have had this ap for about 5 months and have never had it go off this much!

Congratulations Brawley, CA...you are the big winner tonight and you are moving on to the next round of competition!!
Brawley just had another one since I made the post:
3.4 10km ENE of Brawley, California 2012-08-27 06:31:27 33.023°N 115.433°W 7.4
With hurricanes I've actually had lots of experience. :) Earthquakes, not so much unless you count a 7.9 earthquake in AK, years back.
I know from my own investigation that the earth is experiencing a recent increase in both large earthquakes (M5+) and volcanic activity.
Ha! Excellent summation.
And another one:
3.0 4km W of Brawley, California 2012-08-27 07:32:06 32.979°N 115.579°W 14.9
Earthquakes, hurricanes etc. Maybe THIS will make the GOPe reconsider Mitt.
No, the storm by and large is bypassing FL and headed straight for New Orleans.
JUST THE WAY George Bush steered it, bet the newscaster doesn’t say the same about Obama steering it into New Orleans.
“massive damage reported” ?
No reports of damage, injuries after 7.4 magnitude quake strikes off coast of El Salvador
Earthquakes, hurricanes etc. Maybe THIS will make the GOPe reconsider Mitt.One can pray that is so. A very popular Christian candidate, who is an intense pro-life politician, was passed over (because of Romney's $$$ and Gingrich's refusal to back out). Not good. And now folks are skewering Akin, who ALSO came out with an intense pro-life message (no one listens to what he said in its entirety; just his gaffe)... Christ will not be mocked.. IMO He's tired of all the killing and the passive nature by which Americans allow it concerning themselves only with the economy, etc. He's sent us help and we laugh. Which by the way, the meaning of the name Isaac (the current storm/hurricane) is "He will laugh."
Where’s the USGS link?
Well things were oddly quiet....
What earthquake thing do you have?
I just have one ap called Iearthquakes and another called earthquake alerts(?). It is just an ap for my iPad that sends push notifications on earthquakes and gives you the location on a map and info on time, strength etc.
The is an ap for everything now....lol.
I bet there have been over a hundred at this point since yesterday morning. Very unusual for sure.
Hopefully you will not have yet another hurricane experience in the coming days. Stay safe!
Thanks for the ping and all the info. Much appreciated.
I’ve been wondering why no cartoons, jokes or stories in the media about the evil David Axelrod with the huricanne and earthquake machine. It’s probably that they just don’t think he’s as powerful as Rove. /sarc
Then you might enjoy this.
EARTHQUAKE 3D. Imagine seeing earthquakes WORLDWIDE all at the same time. Imagine being able to control the magnitude of quakes shown, or the time period, or ZOOM IN and OUT. Imagine being able to tell the MAGNITUDE with a quick look. Imagine being able to see the PATTERNS.
