#1 The  http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-51-earthquake-causes-damage-some-flee-from-homes-20140329,0,522498.story#axzz2xMWAB1AA" rel="nofollow - 5.1 earthquake  that shook Los Angeles on Friday was the worst earthquake that the city had seen in many years.

#2 Following that earthquake, there were  http://www.voanews.com/content/aftershocks-rattle-california-following-51-earthquake/1882138.html" rel="nofollow - more than 100 aftershocks .

#3 A  http://www.voanews.com/content/aftershocks-rattle-california-following-51-earthquake/1882138.html" rel="nofollow - 4.1 earthquake  shook Los Angeles on Saturday.  Scientists are hoping that this earthquake swarm in southern California will end soon.

#4 Earlier this month, a  http://thetruthwins.com/archives/what-will-happen-when-the-big-one-hits-california" rel="nofollow - 4.4 earthquake  rattled Los Angeles so badly that it caused news anchors to dive under their desks.

#6 Up in Oregon, Mt. Hood recently experienced  http://koin.com/2014/03/27/nearly-100-recent-quakes-mt-hood-worrisome/" rel="nofollow - more than 100 earthquakes  over the course of just a few days.

#7 During the past month, there have also been some other very unusual geologic events that have been happening  http://www.examiner.com/article/oregon-quake-swarms-at-mount-hood-sinkholes-loud-booms-shaking-landslides" rel="nofollow - up in Oregon ...

    • Two large landslides – one in the Columbia River Gorge dumped about 2,000 cubic yards of rock and debris on highway I84 just 3 miles west of the Hood River, and another blocked US30 near Portland.

    • Loud booms and ground shaking reported by people from Lincoln to Tillamook Counties; some reported hearing a rumble, as well (No earthquakes recorded by the USGS in the area at the time.)

    • A 20 ft. deep sinkhole swallowed a woman and her dog in her Portland backyard.

#10 Over the past month, there have been  http://earthquaketrack.com/p/united-states/oklahoma/recent" rel="nofollow - more than 130 earthquakes  in the state of Oklahoma.  This is highly unusual.

#11 There have been several dozen earthquakes in Peru over the past month, including a  http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/15/world/americas/peru-earthquake/" rel="nofollow - 6.3 earthquake  that made headlines all over the globe.

#12 Earlier this month, the northern coast of Chile was hit by  http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/experts-chile-fear-catastrophe-300-quakes-hit-one-week-n61531" rel="nofollow - more than 300 earthquakes  in a seven day stretch.  41 of those earthquakes were stronger than magnitude 4.5.

Fortunately, the quake that hit Los Angeles on Friday did not cause too much lasting injury.  But it sure did shake people up.  The following is how  http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-51-earthquake-causes-damage-some-flee-from-homes-20140329,0,522498.story#axzz2xMWAB1AA" rel="nofollow - the Los Angeles Times  described the damage...

The quake, centered near La Habra, caused furniture to tumble, pictures to fall off walls and glass to break. Merchandise fell off store shelves, and there were reports of plate glass windows shattered.

In Brea, several people suffered minor injuries during a rock slide that overturned their car. Fullerton reported seven water main breaks. Carbon Canyon Road was closed.

Residents across Orange and Los Angeles counties and the Inland Empire reported swinging chandeliers, fireplaces dislodging from walls and lots of rattled nerves. The shake caused a rock slide in Carbon Canyon, causing a car to overturn, according to the Brea Police Department.

Why this particular earthquake is of such concern is because it occurred along the Puente Hills fault line.  According to one seismologist, this is the fault line that would be most likely to  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2592158/Customers-flee-Disneyland-5-3-earthquake-shakes-downtown-Los-Angeles-followed-TWENTY-aftershocks.html" rel="nofollow - "eat L.A." ...

Experts said that the earthquakes occurred on the Puente Hills thrust fault, which stretches from the San Gabriel Valley to downtown Los Angeles.

Last night's quake was shallow, which 'means the shaking is very concentrated in a small area,' said Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson.

Hauksson revealed that the earthquake was unusual because the 5.1 quake was preceded by the weaker foreshock.

Scientists such as Hauksson are very concerned about the Puente Hills fault because it runs directly under downtown Los Angeles.

'This is the fault that could eat L.A.,' seismologist Sue Hough told The LA Times in 2003.

The fact that this fault appears to be waking up is really bad news.

According to seismologists, a major earthquake along this fault line  http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-this-fault-that-could-bring-earthquake-worse-than-the-big-one-20140330,0,3659379.story#axzz2xTMa3oBJ" rel="nofollow - could cause hundreds of billions of dollars of damage ...

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010/03/puente-hills-fault-focuses-shaking-toward-downtown-los-angeles.html" rel="nofollow - Video simulations of a rupture on the  Puente Hills fault system show how energy from a quake could erupt and be funneled toward L.A.'s densest neighborhoods, with the strongest waves rippling to the west and south across the Los Angeles Basin.

According to estimates by the USGS and Southern California Earthquake Center, a massive quake on the Puente Hills fault could kill from 3,000 to 18,000 people and cause up to $250 billion in damage. Under this worst-case scenario, people in as many as three-quarters of a million households would be left homeless.

For years, we have watched as the rest of the Ring of Fire has been absolutely ravaged by major seismic events.

We all remember the earthquakes that caused the Indonesian tsunami of 2004 and the Japanese tsunami of 2011.

And the world mourned when major earthquakes devastated New Zealand, Chile, Peru, Japan and the Philippines.

Scientists assured us that it was only a matter of time before the west coast started to become seismically active again, and now it is happening.

If you live on the west coast, I hope that you will consider these things very carefully.

Just because the earth under your feet has been relatively quiet for a very long time does not mean that it will always be that way.

Something big appears to be happening to the earth's crust, and you won't want to be in the "danger zone" when things finally break loose

Im in Cali, yeah the 5.3 on friday night, not 5.1 actually was a little scary cuz i felt that sh*t in Victorville and the Epicenter was far from here. It shook the hell out of my house. Science teachers always tell us the big ones coming. It was supposed to happen years ago, but hasnt and im not gonna be in hysterics wondering about it. Until all the animals start going crazy for some reason cuz apparently they can sense that sh*t, im good

I keep trying to remind myself to put a new emergency kit in my car. Just in case that's where I'm at when the big one hits.

As long as I'm home though, I'm not too worried. I have everything I need here.

And I'll take earthquakes and wildfires over hurricanes, tornados, and blizzards any day.

It's good to be prepared though. You have a new baby right? Some extra formula, diapers, and warm clothing for him as well as enough water and simple calories (like clif bars or something) for the whole family can really make a difference if you're stuck at home after a quake for days or weeks with no electricity/gas.

Those earthquakes are a sign that something BIG is coming. I think there were 3 earthquakes this month, one of them woke me up around 6am and it was not fun to wake up to the windows rattling and your bed shaking. My dog was chill while I panicked, so if an irrational animal was calm, maybe I should calm down too.

I did not feel the earthquake on Friday but my sister who was sitting on my car by herself felt it shaking.

I am afraid that soon there will be a big earthquake that will destroy a lot of houses/places. I do not have an emergency kit ready. I read a while ago that there would be an earthquake that would break CA and separate a part of the state, but I thought it was bullsh!t. Now I am starting to think this is real.

earthquakes are better than the storm seasons they have in FL imo.. 
having to board up windows and stuff like each year is cray… 
and those snow blizzards and what not…? cray. 

like i said i didnt feel any of the earth quakes mentioned. i think i can only remember feeling like 2 or 3 in my life.

When I was sitting in my living room a few weeks ago and things started shaking I was caught off guard. I didn't know there was seismic activity big enough to feel but there was a 4.something in South Carolina that I was able to feel very distinctly down here. I don't mind earthquakes though. I'd take a quake over snow or hurricanes any day.

All of them are scary: earthquakes, snow storms, hurricanes, storm season in FL.... each one can cause a lot of pain and trouble.
The back-to-back earthquakes here in SoCal may be a sign that more are to come. I have lived in LA for almost a decade and this month I experienced more earthquakes than the whole time I have been here.

Chile just had an 8.2 quake... 


Tsunami alert after 8.2 quake strikes off Chile

Thousands left their homes after the warning was issued, as Alpa Patel reports

A quake of 8.2 magnitude has struck off northern Chile, triggering a tsunami alert and killing at least five people.

The US Geological Survey said the quake struck at 20:46 local time (23:46 GMT) about 86km (52 miles) north-west of the mining area of Iquique.

Waves of up to 2.1m (6ft) have hit some areas in Chile, and there have been power cuts, fires and landslides.

Tens of thousands of people were evacuated in affected areas, where a state of emergency has been declared.

Chilean TV broadcast pictures of traffic jams as people tried to leave.

Officials said the dead included people who were crushed by collapsing walls or died of heart attacks.

Iquique Governor Gonzalo Prieto told local media that in addition to those killed, several people had been seriously injured.

While the government said it had no reports of significant damage to coastal areas, a number of adobe homes were reported destroyed in Arica.

Hundreds of thousands of Chileans are spending the night away from their beds because of the evacuation order, which remains in effect for northern Chile

Further damage may not be known until dawn. The tsunami warning in Chile will last at least until 08:00 GMT.

The quake shook modern buildings in Peru and in Bolivia's high altitude capital of La Paz - more than 470km (290 miles) from Iquique.

At least eight strong aftershocks followed in the few hours after the quake, including a 6.2 tremor.

Downtown looks like a ghost town”

Kurt Hertrampf, Hostel owner, Arica

The Chilean interior ministry told the BBC that one of the main roads outside Iquique was cut off because of hillside debris.

The ministry says that partial landslides have also taken place between the towns of Putre and General Lagos.

The interior minister also told Chilean TV that some 300 women inmates had escaped from a prison in Iquique. The authorities are reported to have deployed a planeload of special forces to guard against looting.

Chilean Interior Minister Rodrigo Penailillo said President Michelle Bachelet was being kept informed. She is to travel to the affected area.

"We have taken action to ensure public order in the case of Iquique, where we've had a massive escape of more than 300 female prisoners, so that the armed forces and police can coordinate and provide security to the residents," he said.

'A big one'

The http://ptwc.weather.gov/" rel="nofollow - Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (TWC) issued an initial warning for Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Panama.

However, all warnings, watches and alerts were later lifted except for Chile and Peru.

Map

Tsunami watches - in which the danger of tidal waves is deemed to be less serious - had been in place for Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico and Honduras.

"Everyone along our coast should be alert and ready," Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa said on Twitter.

Ecuador later reduced its alert but maintained a high level of vigilance for the Galapagos Islands.

High waves hit parts of the Chilean coast within 45 minutes of the quake. Pisagua, Patache and Iquique all saw big waves.

"We have asked citizens to evacuate the entire coast," Chilean home office minister Mahmud Aleuy said.

Evacuations were also ordered in Peru, where waves 2m (6.5ft) above normal forced about 200 people to leave the seaside town of Boca del Rio near the Chilean border, police said.

A British expatriate near the northern Chilean city of Antofagasta told the BBC that there had been several tremors since the last quarter of last year.

"But this earthquake, even with the increased distance, seemed to last a lot longer," Patrick Moore said.

"I was just sitting on my bed and normally these tremors using last at the very longest about 40 seconds - this one felt like it lasted about two minutes.

"I knew it was bad so I immediately went online to see what had happened and saw a tsunami warning that's been put in place which confirmed my fears that it was a big one."

Kurt Hertrampf, a hostel owner in Arica, told the BBC there was a big blackout in the town after the quake and he was surprised the telephone line was still working. He added: "Downtown looks like a ghost town."

The area close to the epicentre is mineral rich, but none of the major copper companies reported any break in production.

Geologist Patrick Moore in the Atacama Desert: "I was lying on my bed and the room was shaking"

Chile is one of the most seismically active countries in the world.

Central and southern areas of the country were hit by a powerful earthquake of 8.8 magnitude quake followed by a tsunami that devastated scores of towns in February 2010.

In 1960 an area of Chile south of Concepcion was hit by a 9.5 magnitude which caused about 1,655 deaths and a tsunami in Hawaii and Japan.

The 9.0 magnitude quake that struck Japan on 11 March 2011 caused a devastating tsunami and left more than 15,000 people dead, with more than 3,200 missing.
