Yet another Earthquake Swarm in Imperial County, This Time Near Octotillo.
Been still feeling these little shakes, and neighbors claiming that they sense a big shaker on the horizon, it makes me think. all that said, I'm sticking to science, and we haven't yet concluded what indeed are precursors - but, my eyes are certainly open. This group of earthquake swarms is something to think about. Consider how the three parallel fault systems exchange energy and swap quake clusters. These are the San Andreas fault, Imperial fault, San Jacinto Fault, Elsinore fault - and many more down a bit to the south of Mexicali.
Are they precursors for a larger quake, or are they relieving pressures within the main fault systems? There is still no conclusion...
