    I pray no serious damage for the people in the area.

    I experienced such a big earthquake here on January 17, 1995.
    Damage in Kobe City was terrible. It was competitive with that by 300 B-29s airraid on March 17, 1945.

    I heard about it on my way home last night. Thankfully, Eureka is not densely populated. I also heard about a 3.something is Moreno Valley about an hour before that.

    I correspond with a friend who lives in Irvine, CA. She said she felt a few "shimmies", but that's all. She still sez
    "The BIG one" is coming..... soon. According to her, the folks in Nevada will have waterfront property.

    Cali's plate is not moving towards the ocean but past the other, moving North, Cali sliding into the ocean isn't geologically possible.

    Yep, the San Andreas is a slippage fault, the one to fear is the Cascadia subduction zone...that's the one that'll make shorefront property inland
