Over 300 earthquakes, two of which were over 5 on the Richter scale, hit Southern California near the San Andreas Fault over the weekend. I don’t know about you but 300 sounds like a lot of earthquakes!
These were followed up with a pretty big earthquake off the coast of El Salvador. It was big enough that it generated a tsunami waring for surrounding countries.
I feel that these events are somewhat related and we could be seeing a larger earthquake somewhere relatively soon. I just hope it doesn’t happen in California near the nuclear facilities there. What we don’t need is another Fukushima!
Things just keep getting stranger…
Two small earthquakes recorded east of Oklahoma City
The U.S. Geological Survey reports that two earthquakes struck near Meeker shortly after 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
Two earthquakes struck Sunday morning about 40 miles east of Oklahoma City.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the 3.2 and 2.2 magnitude quakes hit near Meeker shortly after 3:30 a.m. Sunday. The quakes were about 4 miles from Johnson and 9 miles from Shawnee.
No damage was reported in Lincoln County, a sheriff’s dispatcher said.
Oklahoma was rattled by a 5.6 earthquake on Nov. 5, the largest ever recorded in the state since 1952. It caused damage to several homes and buildings in Shawnee, Prague and Sparks.
The two quakes Sunday were aftershocks.
While it’s difficult to determine a precise length of time that aftershocks will occur, it’s typical for them to occur for at least a week or two after a major seismological event, U.S. National Earthquake Information Center geophysicist Rafael Abreu said.
“As time goes by, they do keep tapering off,” he said.
If another earthquake with a magnitude of 5.0 or greater hits, it will be considered a separate main event and another series of diminishing temblors will be expected to occur, Abreu said.

The question is are you prepared for something like this?
