    Exclamation California Issues 1 week alert for San Andreas fault

    293 seismic events have currently hit the San Andreas fault.

    CalOES issued an Earthquake Advisory on 29 September 2016

    According to the USGS, “Preliminary calculations indicate that, as of 10:00 am (PDT) Sept. 27, 2016, there is a 0.03% – 1% chance (1 in 3000 to 1 in 100) of a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake being triggered on the Southern San Andreas fault within the next seven days through October 4, with the likelihood decreasing over time. This probability range is estimated using several models developed in California to assess foreshock/aftershock probabilities.”

    The calculation was made by seismologists at the USGS at its Menlo Park, CA, Pasadena, CA, and Golden, CO, centers, for the California Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Council, of which USGS seismologist Morgan Page is a member.

    The calculation is based on the most recent time-dependent Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast model (UCERF3), combined with the most current concepts of the likelihood that an aftershock of the M=4.3 could be larger than its mainshock.

    This is called an Epidemic Type Aftershock Sequence, or ETAS, (developed by the great Japanese seismologist-statistican, Yosihiko Ogata).

    The Drudge Report linked this story earlier today as well...

    http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/l...nap-story.html

    Perhaps Simon Parkes, George Green, and Sean David Morton were correct in predicting a larger west coast earthquake before November (if I'm not mistaken, they said it would be man-made and controlled, though I could be wrong about this, but that was my understanding). Personally, while predictions are interesting, I don't put much stock in them...though time will tell.

    In other words, there's a 99.0% - 99.7% chance that nothing will happen within the next week.

    Hopefully nothing will happen.

    California Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Council issued the report in conjunction with USGS. I just don't think they issue reports frivolously.. 239 'aftershocks' for the Sept 26th quake right on the south flank of the San Andreas and into the Brawley Seismic zone (see the OP post 1 image) is high in one day before they issued the alert. The 26 Sept. was a recorded 4.3 magnitude quake.

    I agree with Boja, 1% or even 0.03 is still a GUESS. What they have showing up is a lot of earthquake swarms at a junction of the San Andreas and the Brawley Seismic zone. Since California gets numerous quakes, and they don't issue an alert, this is different..

    References - "The Brawley Seismic Zone (BSZ), also known as the Brawley fault zone, is a predominantly extensional tectonic zone that connects the southern terminus of the San Andreas Fault with the Imperial Fault in Southern California". It also is a contact point for the Baja Peninsula and the East Pacific Rise. It's also tied into volcanic and geothermal activity. When the area "cracks", rifts open up, as far as the Mexico/California border such as in 1979. A lot of swarm activity happens on the BSZ, not small but larger 5+, close to a 5.8 magnitude.

    Summarizing, activity is happening somewhere along the plates, and is focalizing in that area apparently and that is enough it seems to have called the alert.

    Hmm! bad place to build so much habit.
    May all activity there will be small events and so release gently.

    When I looked at the map my mind showed me the 'Salton Sea' disrepair as if down a big hole? Hope that wouldn't cause extra event problems in that area?

    Risk of big earthquake on San Andreas fault rises after quake swarm at Salton Sea

    http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/l...nap-story.html

    More on the link--brief part here.
    Chris


    The rumbling started Monday morning deep under the Salton Sea. A rapid succession of small earthquakes — three measuring above magnitude 4.0 — began rupturing near Bombay Beach, continuing for more than 24 hours. Before the swarm started to fade, more than 200 earthquakes had been recorded.

    The temblors were not felt over a very large area, but they have garnered intense interest — and concern — among seismologists. It marked only the third time since earthquake sensors were installed there in 1932 that the area had seen such a swarm, and this one had more earthquakes than the events of 2001 and 2009.

    The quakes occurred in one of California’s most seismically complex areas. They hit in a seismic zone just south of where the mighty San Andreas fault ends. It is composed of a web of faults that scientists fear could one day wake up the nearby San Andreas from its long slumber.

    New Study Blames Fracking For Spike In Oklahoma Earthquakes

    By David on 2 October 2016 GMT Corporate Crime Planetary change






    New Study Blames Fracking For Spike In Oklahoma Earthquakes
    Posted on October 1, 2016


    By Whitney Webb

    ‘For years, scientists and other have speculated that the spike in earthquakes in Oklahoma was
    linked to natural gas extraction via the controversial method of hydraulic fracturing. Hydraulic
    fracturing, more commonly known as “fracking”, is hugely controversial due to its permanent
    destruction of groundwater and drinking water as well as its use of cancerous chemicals that
    often leak into rivers and streams. Yet, it seems that an increase in earthquakes is also another
    unpleasant side effect of fracking.

    From 1975 to 2008, the US Geological Survey measured, on average, 1 to 3 earthquakes annually
    in Oklahoma. Once the current fracking boom began in 2009, that number spiked to an average
    40 earthquakes annually from 2009 to 2013 and they’ve been worsening since. In 2014, Oklahoma
    experienced over 580 earthquakes of 3.0 magnitude or greater. Thankfully, a new study has put
    any doubt to rest, once and for all proving that this dangerous spike in earthquakes is a direct
    result of widespread fracking.’



    Cumulative number of earthquakes with a magnitude of 3.0 or larger in the central and eastern
    United States, 1970–2016. The long-term rate of approximately 29 earthquakes per year increased
    sharply starting around 2009. Credit – USGS

    frac'ing has NOTHING to do with this thread Cider.. This thread talks about instability happening under the Salton Sea. There is no frac'ing coming from Oklahoma messing with the San Andreas (in California) or the fault zone that connects to it, leading down to Mexico (through California), -- good thought but there are no injection wells at the location of the earthquake or focal point..

    INJECTION WELLS are responsible for numerous earthquakes in Oklahoma.

    There are now numerous very good detailed report threads documenting INJECTION WELLS which are putting continual PRESSURE deep underground in zones which can absorb ASSOCIATED WATER (and waste water from frac'ing operations)..

    Injection wells should be paid attention to.. There aren't any where the earthquake was noted..

    Injection wells are VERY different than frac'ing an oil or gas well.. Specifics are needed, not party line stuff.. Just to give the best information..

    Frac'ing has nothing to do with it..

    According to Sorchas Russian subs are off both coasts, one coast getting hammered by hurricane the other earthquakes...


    The nuclear agreement between US and Russia is over, so why wouldn't weather modification and quake weapons be also?


    Both follow the threats issued by one of America's biggest warmongers, saying ready to destroy Russia to remove Putin from power
