Past 48 Hours of Intense Earthquake Activity. Why?


Please click and read this article, and then go out on your own, research and find facts. Is the USGS covering something up, or are alarmists ringing the bell and crying wolf? I stand neutral on this one, and will research it. Just something to read just so you know where to kick off some objective research one. Okey, enough said.

Small Earthquakes Rattle Indio, Near San Andreas Fault



//www.mydesert.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2012204120313

Over the last few days, I have been experiencing little creaks and rattles in the house, and my paintings are all crooked. This semi-swarm, or perhaps even a swarm, is well north of the great San Andreas fault, under Inspiration Point, at Joshua Tree National Park, but a bit to the south-east.

Many associate this series of micro-quakes with the geothermal volcanic system of the Salton Trough, and Salton Buttes Volcano.

Intuitively, and via watching patterns in swarms and micro-quakes, I see a connection between the Salton Trough system and Covington Flat Volcano, and a connection between the Salton Trough spreading zone and the Landers spreading zone. That being said, I see this current swarm as activity associated with the connection between the two rifting zones.

Eventually there will be a series of earth movements and venting events that will open up this area, and making for a truly connected rifting zone, and eventually, over a period of ten million years - we'll possibly see California completely broken off from the mainland, as Baja is broken off of Mainland Mexico.

Take a look at the map from the USGS and note the swarm just north of Indio.

Just a Trip Down The Road to Pipes Canyon Volcano


This is me getting rather technical. It's funny and pretty laid back. I wrote and performed the last song.

Pair of Strong Earthquakes in Baja California


http://www.cnn.com/2012/04/12/world/americas/mexico-earthquakes/index.html

Just a couple of hours ago a pair of strong earthquakes hit near San Isabel, Baja California Norte, Mexico. There is to tsunami warning in effect at this time. This is one the rifting zone that I blog about a lot. This spreading zone is what I primarily blog about.

I felt a slight rolling sensation and some hanging things moved slightly.

Over the past couple of days there has been more strong earthquakes than normal, including a 8.8 just off of Sumatra.
