Im getting a bit concerned about the San Andreas fault. As recently as today of a 7.1 quake in Mexico.

Obviously there is movement along the fault.

Just picked up a

I expect an earthquake at any time as it seams we may be overdue for one. California would be a likely location, if not the Memphis area... the New Madrid fault.

I have always wanted to stand on the San Andreas fault...I think it would be an experience I wouldn't forget.

Some info
San Andreas Fault - Wikipedia.

Seismologists discovered that the San Andreas Fault near Parkfield in central California consistently produces a magnitude 6.0 earthquake approximately once every 22 years. Following recorded seismic events in 1857, 1881, 1901, 1922, 1934, and 1966, scientists predicted that another earthquake should occur in Parkfield in 1993. It eventually occurred in 2004.

UCERF3

The 2015 Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast, Version 3, or UCERF3, is the latest official earthquake rupture forecast (ERF) for the state of California, superseding UCERF2. It provides authoritative estimates of the likelihood and severity of potentially damaging earthquake ruptures in the long- and near-term. Combining this with ground motion models produces estimates of the severity of ground shaking that can be expected during a given period (seismic hazard), and of the threat to the built environment (seismic risk).

Magnitude-3.6 Earthquake Shakes Parts of LA


Maybe it will be 23rd Saturday;( . Going by the above information it will be 24 years since their prediction of 1993.
The 2004 Parkville earthquake was on the 28th September.

Numerous fairly strong earthquakes around the world, namely Vanuatu, Indonesia, Iran in the last 12 hours.

Multiple movements along the fault, maybe its connected with the aftermath of the Mexican quakes. Im not entirely sure.

Im not one to usually follow earthquakes that closely, this has me watching. Something seems to be lining up.

Just observing at that time, correct me if im wrong but Ferndale is on the San Andreas fault line. As noted a site of a few big quakes in the past.

@Mayhem Ohhh yes , the "fault line" were the correct words in english. Hold on while i reformulate... Bad place to place a city where there is a lot of tectonic activity. :)

Even though small the rumbles in CA seem to have been hovering around Mag 3.0 this week.

A little higher than last week.
