    Earthquake swarm in Cali and Arizona

    http://ca.news.yahoo.com/swarm-quake...221806620.html

    Anybody feeling these? I read on another forum they are near Brawley, California and even though they are small,they are constant and unnerving.

    Associated Press story

    "USGS seismologist Lucy Jones said earthquake swarms are characteristic of the region, known as the Brawley Seismic Zone.
    "The area sees lots of events at once, with many close to the largest magnitude, rather than one main shock with several much smaller aftershocks," Jones said.
    The last major swarm was in 2005, following a magnitude-5.1 quake, she said.
    Sunday's quake cluster occurred in what scientists call a transition zone between the Imperial and San Andreas faults, so they weren't assigning the earthquakes to either fault, Graves said."

    I follow earthquake news on twitter and I guess they are about to break a 30 year historical record with over 200 today. The night isn't over yet. We are in AZ but not near Yuma. It's rockin' & rollin' it appears. Be safe CA!

    Prayers for everyone that might be affected. Are they detectable to people just going about their everyday business, or are they too small for people to feel them?
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    I would think that a series of small quakes is a good thing overall. It's better to let the pressure off slowly than in one big jump. JMO

    Interesting that we just had a swarm of them in Yorba Linda a few weeks ago. I agree with Steely, release the pressure a little at a time. No "big ones" please!
    Life is an attitude... have a good one :Bananahi:
