Get ready for the big one! Unfortunately, that will also affect the rest of the country - from the spillover effects.
These are only “little” earthquakes. Not necessarily indicative of a big one.
I heard that!
I’m betting on a Good Friday Quake at about 10.4
is there a fault anywhere NEAR D.C. by the way?
Did NOT feel this one thank goodness..the one last night at least for me wasn’t so bad, felt like rocking on a boat
109km ESE of Kitaibaraki, Japan at 5.2
the ring of fire seems to be heating up
In 2011, there was a quake in Virginia that caused damage in DC.
I felt it was just jolt then rollin
I remember the World Series Quake...aka The Loma Preita...
I was nearly thrown from the seat of my car while driving!
I sense that given the activity around the ring of fire
109km ESE of Kitaibaraki, Japan another 5.2

The center of the Earth is still at AlGore’s millions of degrees I assume....

I dont follow earthquake activity often enough to know how often the ring of fire has a series of quakes ofany size but I do know that if anywhere in the US deserves one....it would be the porn capital of the US ....ELAY
I agree. It was almost soothing.
BILLIONS of DEGREES!!! Billions and Billions of em!!....
This is news?
nothing like a good soothing earthquake after a hard week at work. I always say.
it veiwed in the context of the rest of the sequence of quakes it appears to be.
I remember Northridge of course..before that, I remember the one that happened near Big Bear, forgot which year it was..I was too young to remember the Whittier Narrows quake, and of course the one we had two weeks ago near Encino that one was a pretty good shake..at least yesterday it wasn’t so bad, I don’t mind the swaying, just the violent shaking is what scares the poo outta me
