Link from Drudge—prep for 2 weeks in case of an earthquake, you’re on your own. With no guns to protect you, of course. Funny comments.

I’m in Carlsbad but I didn’t feel it. Heard a couple doors rattle together, but that’s it. Was in Palm Springs last week, would’ve felt it there no doubt.

We have those frequently. Had a 5.1 yesterday in SC Alaska and it barely makes the news.

This guy left town back in Dec/Jan (can’t remember) because of the giant Quake that was coming (haarp). Nothing happened. Now he predicts one like a broken clock and a week later 4.7 Good grief.

In other words, it’s Monday in SoCal.

Did California fall into the ocean? If not, this is a worthless thread.

if a 7.0 hits LA and our liberal leaders have no money to send to LA & its homeless, will it be blamed on the GOP?

Thanks to you and your information years back right here on FR; I, for one, no longer make posts like that! LOL

Ever since then I’ve been amazed at the amount of Earthquakes that happen on a daily basis that we never hear about. We only hear about a very, very slim portion of them - mostly when it hits a city with a large population, or there are shocking types of damage... (as I’m sure you’re aware).

Thanks again for your help in my education on the topic! :)

‘____on the 16th floor_________’

Years ago I was in Santa Barbara, and felt a quake ‘sway’ from about the 4th floor of a building. When I got to the lobby, people looked at me like I was nutty or something - they hadn’t felt it. So of course it didn’t happen!
Right then, as a TV was on, came the quake news. Vindicated!!!

All hell is breaking loose in souther california...

Our west coast has been fortunate to have missed most of the increased worldwide earthquake/volcanic activity for the last year or two. That may be about to change:

California earthquake packed unusually wide punch, experts say

Yeah the main shock of that swarm caused countless small quakes far away from the swarm..it was cool to watch.

Again though the swarm was happening before the 4.7 so certainly can not rule out a larger quake even though the swarm slowed!

Those countless small quakes are likely the reason for no large quake, as the stress dissipated through those. Sooner or later though, a major hangup will occur with a massive, all at once, release of force.

That was last year that a 9.0 quake was predicted for March 22. As I recall, it didn’t happen.

No,...I often feel stuff that doesn't even show up.

I think I am right on a major fault that did it to Long Beach many years ago,...

Yeah it was like a bag of popcorn going off yesterday afternoon...kinda cool to watch.

Certainly not expected given just a 4.7?

There's a lot to be learned from this for those that blast Darwin's evolution theories. one of which involves the evolution of Earth.

From "Darwin's Ghost," a mdern update on Darwin's "Origin ..." by Steve Jones, we have on page 196 ...

"Fifteen million years ago, life on Earth was much as it is today, but fifteen million years hence, because of the unpredictable creep of coastal California along the San Andreas Fault, The Santa Monica Freeway will run directly into the San Francisco Bay Bridge as the City Of Angels migrates northward."

Sequestration has knocked out the California earthquake suppressors.

I bought a home version two years ago and has been working better than I expected. Couldn't afford the insurance.

It happens. Glad to hear it was not worse as to cause major damage or loss in lives. Sounds like your ok other then being pissed off about finding todays quake in your area.
