You OK?

I know I'm known for hating, among other things, California. I also know that we have some regular members here from the west coast and Commiefornia so hopefully you all are OK. I need you around to rag on! :lashing:

I'd miss California if it fell into the sea, stay safe and near a boat.

Just got some shaking and long rolling on the last one. That area is about half way (north of Barstow) to Vegas.

There is a second quake beyond the Searles aftershocks that also is releasing several more aftershocks. They are quite small though, so I don't feel anything beyond the first three.

This may...or may not...simply be the precursor to additional earthquake activity...

With commentary like that SB you could work as a weather forecaster! :p

How much did you pay for that degree professor?

That depth is whack. Still if it was anywhere near that shallow it would destroy roads and structures. Looks like a remote area.

These quakes and after shocks have hit three areas in a triangle shape on the map that are approximately 50+ miles wide on each angle.

Not good. I don't have a good feeling how this is unfolding so I packed up additional goods in case I have to bug out tonight.

Always expect the unexpected.

Magnitude 7.1 Earthquake Follows July 4th Ridgecrest Temblor, Becoming the ‘Mainshock’ in a Massive Swarm
POSTED 4:16 AM, JULY 5, 2019, BY ERIKA MARTIN, RICK CHAMBERS AND NERISSA KNIGHT, UPDATED AT 03:55AM, JULY 6, 2019

After a swarm of more than 1,400 earthquakes hit the Searles Valley region over the past two days, a magnitude 7.1 temblor — the biggest yet — struck Friday evening.

The quake hit roughly 10 and a half miles from Ridgecrest at about 8:19 p.m., the U.S. Geological Survey reports. After previously downgrading the magnitude to 6.9, seismologists pushed it back up to the preliminary figure of 7.1.

The epicenter was about 7 miles northwest of the 6.4 magnitude Fourth of July foreshock that was previously thought to be what seismologists call the "mainshock," or largest event in a seismic series.

My family is L.A. and Silicon Valley, so they got mild stuff, but I was in a few when I lived there, unnerving.

I live in the foothills north of LA. Friends as far south as Orange County felt these, everyone I asked around all areas of LA felt them.
We felt nothing. 7 years in this house, never felt a quake.
When we're in Japan, that's another story... earthquakes are so regular nobody pays any attention unless it's a big one.

Sounds like you picked a good locale for your abode.
