four or five pacific rim large earthquakes

In the past week large earthquakes in Japan, Philipines, Vanuatu, Tonga, and Ecuador. All around the pacific basin area. Is it working it's way toward the Big One in California? If some 7+ richter scale earthquakes happen near Kamchatkya and Alaska, I'd be plenty worried if I lived in California.

California is set up for earthquakes

In reply to: four or five pacific rim large earthquakes

I heard about this and it looks like the Pacific plates are restless. Some of them were above 7. The ones I heard about were all above 6. I remember one in California that was a 6.5 I believe. Only one person was killed when an overpass fell on him.

The new VA hospital in LA collapsed but no one was in it yet. Turned out the construction company used too much sand in the concrete. You should have heard the screams. Everyone was saying that's what happens when you go with the lowest bidder and don't check on the in progress building.

It's all our fault, don't you know?

We haven't been convincing enough with the rest of the world regarding 'climate change', so you know the liberals will blame this on the US as usual.

It's all that melted glaciers

In reply to: It's all our fault, don't you know?

they are making the Pacific Ocean a lot heavier, especially at the equator, and now it's "settling" more like a home does. (how's that to get them going?)

I'll check it later, getting nap time

In reply to: Re: glaciers

I did note one foolish statement that God didn't create "natural disasters" which depending on he meant that, could be right, could be wrong. If God did it, it wouldn't be by chance or happenstance, ergo not natural. The author must have forgotten the plagues of Egypt in Moses day, but maybe he doesn't consider those "natural" but "supernatural". To a non believer though, they would appear perhaps to be an interesting coincidence of natural disasters.

That is not related.

In reply to: four or five pacific rim large earthquakes

That all was not related. The time of earthquake happened were all almost the same. They were caused by stresses released caused by tectonic plates smashes.
