5.6 magnitude earthquake shakes northern California

February 13, 2012SAN FRANCISCOA 5.6 magnitude earthquake struck northern California 50 km (31 miles) from Eureka, Ca. and 352 km from Sacramento according to the USGS. The earthquake had a preliminary depth of 32 km (20.4 miles) below the surface. The earthquake is the second to strike the region in 24 hours. On Sunday, seismometers recorded a 4.4 magnitude tremor with an epicenter near Cobb Mountain.  Sunday’s earthquake, which occurred at 8:47 p.m., initially was reported as being 4.4 in magnitude, but was later dialed back slightly to 4.3 after it was reviewed by a seismologist, according to a U.S. Geological Survey report. Centered three miles east of The Geysers geothermal steam-field, three miles south southwest of Cobb and three miles west northwest of Anderson Springs, the earthquake occurred at a depth of two-tenths of a mile, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The USGS issued a warning that gave a 28 percent probability that aftershocks measuring 5.0 in magnitude or above could occur within the next seven days in the same location. The warning also stated that most likely the 5.6 magnitude quake was the main earthquake; there was a 5 percent to 10 percent possibility an earthquake measuring equal to or greater could occur within the next seven days in the same location. There have been no initial reports of damage from today’s 5.6 earthquake. –The Extinction Protocol

    response to three earthquakes 2/11/12 in Caribbean north of Venezuela. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    I live less than four hours south of this 5.6. I put a video out on YouTube by SafeTorFreak. This area is the next main area to cause a Tsunami off the coast of Northern California. Who knows when but with the USGS warning Humbolt county of another 5.0 over the next several days doesn’t help the chances. Eyes open and ears to the ground. I’m heading east to the mountains for the weekend, yet not in fear but for recreation. Stay safe all.

    4 nuke reactors with full storage ponds and above ground storage of rods. Called Humboldt bay and sitting within sight of the ocean and right on top of the California fault system. They are sisters of the Japanese mess and just as old.


  8. Thank you very much for this great information. Let’s pray for the people who were struck by this massive quake. God be with us all.
