Couldn’t be aliens. They quit using the Nazca lines long ago.

The Loma Prieta (World Series) quake in NoCal was a 6.9. The USGS lists this new one in Peru at 6.9 as well.

It is sobering to drive inside, Lima Peru along the beach.... Pretty scenery. Good roads (at least on that part of Lima) and good beach recreation.....

And see regularly posted “Tsunami Evacuation” signs on the crosswalks leaving the beach.

Tidal waves ARE a threat down there. Earthquakes, landslides, and falling debris. It is a real threat.

.and a 6.1 San Francisco way -

God shaking the Ring of Fire?

(Never could understand why people would continue living in San Francisco - betting the fault will never do it's thing again...just because they're there?)

On the other hand - the places of the worst discord in the country seem to be vulnerable to disaster - maybe God is hedging His bets? Earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunami

copy paste - NYC - Eastern seaboard could be wiped out

Chile had a 6 something magnitude quake the day before California’s. When it happened in Chile I was wondering if it would affect the tectonic plates in the Pacific. Following day the Ca quake.

Peru is north of Chile. Closer to Ca. Watch out Ca.

Never could understand why people would continue living in San Francisco

Every place has it's good and bad features. Right now, the main bad feature is the governance by liberal idiots. That being said, earthquakes are the least of one's worries. Most are mild and cause little or no damage. The big ones are rare and might not affect one at all in their lifetime. One of my daughter's in-laws built their house on a rise in Kansas, they got the land cheaply because a tornado wiped out the previous home - twice. Why would one want to live in a place like that? My daughter's home in Texas had over 100 degree weather every day for much of the summer last year. Why would one want to live like that?

Anyway, two things SF has going for it are jobs and weather. Weather is mild, you can travel a short bit and find high temps or snow; meanwhile you work in mild 70 degree temps. Everything you need is nearby without having to drive a hundred miles. Very little crime, few poor ghettos. Now if only we could expel the liberal invaders who took over running the politics (SF was a former republican city for most of the 20th century).

Today/tonight is the time of a new moon when the gravitational forces of the moon plus the sun are strongest on the crust of the earth. Thus there is an increased probability of earthquakes during these periods.

with movements of that magnitude on both sides of l.a. Id suspect that there’d be SOME significant movement of the plates in that area shortly.

Aliens would be a lot more likely than fracking or global warming as a cause.

The Pacific Rim is waking up.

Better have water supplies; a go-bag; food that doesn’t need refrigeration.

Time to be prepared. Remember, we had a 7.1 which was centered 100 miles East of us, and still it affected us a lot.

Last week was a quiet solar week, then starting Thursday there was a rhythmic string of solar flares, all about the same magnitude. Sunday morning there was a very large solar flare, just a few hours before the Peru quake. Remember there is also a volcano brewing & stewing in Iceland.

Graphs here, subtract 5 hours for East Coast US time:
