    Too much panic over these small E/Qs. I grew up in the New Madrid fault and it was a weekly occurrence. No one thought much of it. Just prepare yourself for the BIG one and go on with daily life.

    • I too live in the New Madrid Seismic Zone and I don’t think you have your information correct… We don’t have quakes of this magnitude all the time… 1.0 to 2.7 range every other week. With that being said, quakes 4.0 and greater happen on average around every 10 years…

  2. Last Wed I was looking at Los Angeles on Googlemaps and such a horrible, oppressive sense of foreboding, dread and despair came over me that I cried and prayed for over an hour. Please join me in praying and asking for God’s mercy, that He would intervene and prevent whatever catastrophe it is that looms. God does still have control, and more than once, He has said to me, “You had but to ask!”

    Alvin, keep an eye on these three fault systems the biggest of course being the San Andreas. The activity has risen dramatically since the recent big 8 quakes in Indonesia and the sequence that included the Mexico quakes and the two 6 plus quakes in the Bay of California (and off the Oregon coast).

    I have already been in 5 super strong quakes , the last one 8.0 in 1988 that lasted almost 2 minutes in Perú ! I recall the one that We had in 1974 , 8.1 in the ritcher that lasted also 2 minutes , in both We thought the world was going to end. It was a very tough experience. However what is happening around the word nowadays , with more often very strong quakes and double quakes , increasing in frequency and intensity is something very worry. It seems that sooner or later a very big cluster of quakes will trigger entire regions.

      Thanks for this comment, great to have a witness who can share his own experience and making us realize that earthquakes of those magnitude are extremely frightening. Right now there’s again a strong swarm in Indonesia, Mid and South America and Canada, something is happening, slowly destabilizing plates around the world. A week of quakes then a week of volcanic eruptions and again and again… Pressure is at a turning point…

    I have read on this blog about people particularly in the U.S, experiencing earthquakes preceded by loud booms.Yesterday (Saturday) I experienced an earthquake here in the Fiji Islands in the South Pacific that was preceded by a loud boom.I have never experienced anything like it.I have felt quakes before but never without a loud boom preceding it.It was eerie.

  11. I went for a hike to see a waterfalls and enjoy God’s beauty today but with all the turmoil of the world on my mind. The funny part is I drive by this every day and have my whole life, not knowing how deep the gorge was or how incredible. His creation is indescribably beautiful, where two very deep gorges converge into one and unite to form this powerful, graceful movement. And this is only a little piece of His Whole Creation.There was incredible power behind the forming of this deep, deep gorge. He is Awesome. He is the God who loves and cares for us. No matter what happens we have been and will be in his hands.God Bless you all! Here are some pictures but it hardly does it justice. http://www.nyfalls.com/peppermill.html
