80,000 Aftershocks and Counting! Magma Is Rising.

More than 80,000 earthquakes have been recorded in the Ridgecrest area since July 4 — the aftermath from two of the biggest temblors to hit California in nearly a decade. Experts said the two major quakes — the first measuring magnitude 6.4, the second 7.1 — led to a particularly energetic aftershock sequence before slowing down. The calculation, conducted by Zachary Ross, Caltech assistant professor of geophysics, comes as the earthquake sequence has continued to lessen rapidly. The U.S. Geological Survey says the chance of an earthquake of magnitude 7 or higher resulting from the Ridgecrest quakes is 1 in 300 — possible, but with a low probability.

This activity is common in areas where there’s a high heat flow in the earth, Ross said.Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson said earlier this month, that aftershock sequences in areas of Earth’s crust that is relatively warm can be initially quite intense but also fade more quickly, as has been seen in relatively hotter rock in the Imperial Valley.

The Ridgecrest earthquakes are relatively close to the Coso Volcanic Field of Inyo County, which is mainly within the borders of Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, the sprawling military installation where much of the earthquake rupture occurred underneath. It’s one of the nation’s largest producers of geothermal power. CLICK TO READ MORE..


New Madrid Bend | California Earthquakes could cause problems elsewhere.

With the recent Earthquakes Increasing In California it is no doubt going to cause the biggest Earthquake yet. It will also cause earthquakes I believe all over the United States. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency is telling people to be prepared as the increase in California could cause a devastating impact on the state.

Illinois on the Eastern and Western borders have 2 active seismic zones which are very active right now. Earthquakes that occur in the New Madrid Seismic Zone potentially threaten parts of eight American states which are Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Mississippi. In 1811-1812 the area in southern Missouri was hit by an earthquake that registered 7.5 on the Richter scale. NEW MADRID has the potential to produce large earthquakes in the future. Since 1812, frequent smaller earthquakes have been recorded in the area

“It was felt up the eastern seaboard into New York City, Philadelphia, even up to Canada, so it was just a huge earthquake,” said retired Mississippi Emergency Management Agency Director Robert Latham.

“The likelihood of an earthquake on the New Madrid of a 6.0 is like 40-50 percent,” Latham said.

The fact of the matter is the earthquakes are from God, He is shaking up the nation and telling people to stop with the sin and turn to him before it’s too late. Everyday i give news updates on whats going on in the world even in America and the best advice I can give you is GET RIGHT WITH GOD! SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF HIS LOVE AND WHO HE IS, & BE PREPARED. Find out how your state would prepare for something like the earthquakes happening that can be catastrophic. Have a game plan!
