San Andreas 'Quake Swarm' Has Cali Residents Fearing The 'Big One' Is Imminent

Could be tomorrow or it could be in 10 years, but if you live in CA anywhere near the SAF, it’s a good time to have your camping plans ready.

Yeah, being prepared is always a good idea, and the Big One will come eventually. It's only a matter of when.

Be prepared for earthquakes, wherever you live in California, or anywhere in the USA for that matter (well, nearly anywhere - I believe Wisconsin and Iowa are the only two states that have not experienced quakes). The excitement builds as you realize that a quake can strike at any moment. Maybe this swarm is a precursor event, maybe not. We can't tell until the dust settles.

So, yes, keep the camping gear at the ready....If you are ready for an EQ, you are prepped for a whole bunch of other stuff as well.

An excellent read is The Great Quake by Henry Fountain, about the 1960s quake in Alaska that led a young field geologist to understand the workings of plate techtonics. It's an excellent read with many first person accounts of how a quake and tsunami impacted and killed people, and how many coped to survive. Excellent survival stories, coupled with the solving of a geological mystery by a very practical field geologist.

Yes, a very good read.

I send good vibes, always, but my mom and brother flew to Bakersfield today to spend Thanksgiving with his in-laws. Earthquakes, and these swarms in particular, have suddenly rocketed up my awareness list. Of course, bacpacgirl has chosen "San Andreas" as her new favourite movie this week. Shiver!

In earthquake country, “good vibes” means no vibes! 🙂
