Two Earthquakes Rattle SoCal
NBC 4 ^ | September 19, 2013 | Christina Cocca

Posted on 09/19/2013 5:40:43 AM PDT by John W

Shaking was reported from inland areas to the coast early Thursday when two earthquakes -- the first with a preliminary magnitude of 3.7 followed by another measured at magnitude-3.8 -- struck two miles north of Pomona.

The magnitude-3.7 quake hit about 4:43 a.m. one mile southwest of La Verne. Just 20 minutes later, a magnitude-3.8 quake struck the same area.

The NBC 4 story said they were widely felt. They were somewhat shallow so maybe that’s why. Concern in some quarters could be foreshocks.

I’ve devoted my life to stamping out earthquakes. Prevention is now possible. Send $19.95 for a kit to get you started.

You should contact the IPCC, I understand they may be looking for a place to move some of their budget funds due to some recent revelations.

The quakes seem to be centered at Bonelli Park (near the intersection of the 10 / 57 / 71), one mile south-west of the LA County Fair.

First one didn’t wake me, but woke my daughter, second one did. Kind of interesting looking at the waveforms for these earthquakes, very short duration close to the epicenter with a lot longer just a couple miles away (3 seconds vs 7 seconds.)

The thing that gets me is how close to the surface the epicenters are.

This has been an ongoing swarm of quakes, most of them micro events (1.7 - 2.2), about 17 in the past 7 days. Almost all of them are under a half mile in depth, most within a quarter mile. Kellogg Hill, near Cal Poly, has had very similar swarms as well, but if I recall correctly, they were deeper.

CA has about 2,000 quakes a year. 3.7 is nothing

It is so annoying that the USGS replaced its good earthquake maps with utter crapola maps.

“Oh look, you can zoom in and see one or two epicenters but nothing of value! Much better than seeing a state map covered with hundreds of values that can be easily seen.”

The dumbass who did that should be fired, unless his intent was to prevent the public from seeing earthquakes. Though it would have been more to the point to just use a URL redirect to Disney.com.

CNN Anchor Deb Feyerick: “So Bill, Every time we see an earthquake, or storms, the first question to pop into a lot of people’s minds is of course, whether or not global warming is to blame?”

I wonder if people who don’t live in earthquake country even know how small these are.
