LOS ANGELES (AP) — A quake with a magnitude of 7.1 jolted much of California, cracking buildings, setting fires, breaking roads and causing several injuries while seismologists warned that large aftershocks were expected to continue for days, if not weeks.

The Friday night quake — preceded by Thursday's 6.4-magnitude temblor in the Mojave Desert — was the largest Southern California quake in at least 20 years and was followed by a series of large and small aftershocks, including a few above magnitude 5.0.

There is about a 1-in-10 chance that another 7.0 quake could hit within the next week, said Lucy Jones, a seismologist at the California Institute of Technology and a former science adviser at the U.S. Geological Survey.

The chance of a 5.0-magnitude quake "is approaching certainty," she added.

Aftershocks from the new main quake could occur for years, Jones said.

However, the quake was unlikely to affect fault lines outside of the area, she said, noting that the gigantic San Andreas Fault was far away.

The quake struck at 8:19 p.m. and was centered 11 miles (18 kilometers) from Ridgecrest in the same areas where the previous quake hit.

"These earthquakes are related," Jones said, adding that the new quake probably ruptured along about 25 miles (40 kilometers) of fault line and was part of a continuing sequence.

Gov. Gavin Newsom activated the state Office of Emergency Services operations center "to its highest level" and announced he had requested that President Donald Trump issue an emergency declaration so the state could receive federal aid.

The quake was felt as far north as Sacramento, as far east as Las Vegas and as far south as Mexico.

The area in and around Ridgecrest, already trying to recover from the previous temblor, took the brunt of damage. Several thousand people were without power, and there were reports of cracked buildings.

"There are significant reports of structure fires, mostly as a result of gas leaks or gas line breaks throughout the city" and daybreak Saturday could show even more serious damage, said Mark Ghilarducci, director of California Office of Emergency Services.

Local fire and police officials said they were initially swamped by calls for medical and ambulance service. But there was "nothing but minor injuries such as cuts and bruises, by the grace of God," Ridgecrest Police Chief Jed McLaughlin said.

Two building fires — one involving a mobile home — were quickly doused, and there were several reports of natural gas leaks, but the lines were shut off, McLaughlin said.

For the second time in as many days, Ridgecrest Regional Hospital wheeled patients out of the building, some still hooked to IVs, CNN reported.

Nearby, the tiny town of Trona, with about 2,000 residents, was reported to have at least one collapsed building. Roads were buckled or blocked, and police put out a call for bottled water for residents.

State Route 178 in Kern County was closed by a rockslide and had severe cracking.

Several homes were knocked off their foundations. Buildings were cracked, but there were only minor injuries, authorities said.

In downtown Los Angeles, 150 miles away, offices in skyscrapers rolled and rocked for at least 30 seconds.

Andrew Lippman, who lives in suburban South Pasadena, was sitting outside and reading the paper when Friday's quake hit and calculated it lasted 45 seconds.

"I could see power lines swaying," he said.

Disneyland in Orange County and Six Flags Magic Mountain in Santa Clarita closed their rides.

An NBA Summer League game in Las Vegas was stopped after the quake. Speakers over the court at the Thomas & Mack Center continued swaying more than 10 minutes after the quake.

In Los Angeles, the quake rattled Dodger Stadium in the fourth inning of the team's game against the San Diego Padres. But the game went on, and the Padres won, 3-2.

"Not many people can say they threw a strike during an earthquake," Eric Lauer, who was on the mound at the time, said later. "My ball, my pitch, started an earthquake."

"Everyone was jumping over us to leave," said Daniel Earle, 52, of Playa del Rey, who was sitting with his wife in the stadium's reserve level. "My wife was holding us, like squeezing. I'm surprised my arm is still here."

Earlier Friday, Los Angeles had revealed plans to lower slightly the threshold for public alerts from its earthquake early warning app. But officials said the change was in the works before the Thursday quake, which gave scientists at the California Institute of Technology's seismology lab 48 seconds of warning but did not trigger a public notification.

"Our goal is to alert people who might experience potentially damaging shaking, not just feel the shaking," said Robert de Groot, a spokesman for the USGS's ShakeAlert system, which is being developed for California, Oregon and Washington.

The West Coast ShakeAlert system has provided non-public earthquake notifications on a daily basis to many test users, including emergency agencies, industries, transportation systems and schools.

Construction of a network of seismic-monitoring stations for the West Coast is just over half complete, with most coverage in Southern California, San Francisco Bay Area and the Seattle-Tacoma area. Eventually, the system will send out alerts over the same system used for Amber Alerts to defined areas that are expected to be affected by a quake, de Groot said.

California is partnering with the federal government to build the statewide earthquake warning system, with the goal of turning it on by June 2021. The state has already spent at least $25 million building it, including installing hundreds of seismic stations throughout the state.

This year, Newsom said the state needed $16.3 million to finish the project, which included money for stations to monitor seismic activity, plus nearly $7 million for "outreach and education." The state Legislature approved the funding last month, and Newsom signed it into law.

SHAKER today here on the Ring of Fire!

Decent size, 5.2 but pretty short.  Shook the digs pretty well though.

A magnitude 5.2 ++earthquake centered in the Willow area shook Southcentral Alaska just after 5 p.m. on Monday.

The quake was centered near Skwentna, 28 miles west of Willow and about 43 miles deep, according to data from the U.S. Geological Survey and Alaska Earthquake Center. It happened at 5:09 p.m., according to the USGS.

The initial estimates of 5.1 and 5.4 magnitude were revised to 5.2 by the agencies. The Alaska Earthquake Center confirmed that the event was an earthquake and not an aftershock.

Hundreds Of Earthquakes Rattle The U.S.
« Reply #452 on: November 06, 2019, 11:33:51 AM »

By Michael Snyder

Why is the mainstream media being so quiet about all of the seismic activity that has been happening all across the United States?  During the last 7 days, there has been an earthquake swarm directly along the New Madrid Fault zone, Kansas and Oklahoma have been hit by a very unusual number of significant quakes, and there have been several sizable seismic events in the vicinity of the Yellowstone supervolcano.

Naturally, the West Coast is getting hammered more than anyone else.  According to Cal Tech, there have been more than 1000 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the last week, but of course most of them have been very small.  Overall, the latest USGS numbers tell us that there have been more than 2,000 earthquakes nationally during the last 7 days, and apparently we aren’t supposed to be alarmed by that.  But could it be possible that all of this seismic activity is leading up to something really big?

Over the weekend, we witnessed some very unusual quakes in the middle of the country.  On Sunday, a magnitude 3.2 earthquake rattled Kansas…

U.S. China Lake Military Weapons Research Facility Likely Targeted with Exotic “Tectonic Weaponry” That Caused Billions in Damage… Is China Behind the Stealth Attack?

11/07/2019 BY STILLNESS IN THE STORM

(Ethan Huff) Back in early July, Southern California was struck with two almost back-to-back whopper earthquakes near the Naval Air Weapons Station in China Lake, prompting fears about an impending “Big One.” But not everything is as it seems, as reports indicate that these strange tectonic movements could have been unnaturally induced by advanced weapons systems.

Source – Natural News

by Ethan Huff, October 13th, 2019

It might sound crazy, but “tectonic weaponry” might have played a role in shaking the Ridgecrest area on Independence Day and the day after, sending shockwaves all throughout Los Angeles and beyond. And the culprit, suspect some, could have been China, the goal being to disrupt one of the most secretive and important United States military bases in the world.

Since the China Lake military base is where advanced Naval Air Weapons are manufactured, it’s a ripe target for an attack. And in order to cloak this attack, or at least avoid creating mass panic within the general population, America’s enemies could have disguised it as an ordinary pair of larger earthquakes, which are nothing new for California.

Keep in mind that the aftershocks associated with these two quakes lasted for months, and still continue to this very day. Based on this strange pattern of movement, some say that it’s not completely outside “the realm of possibility” that enemy forces induced this shaking with some kind of directed energy weapon, or DEW.
Were “pulse wave generator” used to engage a “stealthy” attack on China Lake?

As the Foley Art Center in Alabama tweeted immediately following this pair of earthquakes, the epicenter wasn’t just “near” the Naval weapons base at China Lake – it was the epicenter, which is a very unusual coincidence, assuming these were natural events.

These quakes also occurred just one mile beneath the surface of the base, which further suggests that the base itself was the target of a covert attack potentially involving the use of what are known as “pulse wave generators.”

“[T]here is little doubt that someone doesn’t want us to know about the ‘tectonic weapons’ being unleashed underground at the United States Navy’s largest single landholding, covering more than 1,100,000 acres in Southern California,” tweeted former professional ballerina Victoria Gates in the quakes’ aftermath.

While there doesn’t appear to exist definitive proof that these theories are undeniably true, it remains highly suspect that this pair of earthquakes struck precisely where they did: at a highly strategic location where America’s military weapons manufacturing stands to be seriously crippled, if it hasn’t been crippled already.

It would seem as though this isn’t the end of the shaking, either. Scientists recently warned that they’ve identified a “hidden fault line” underneath Los Angeles that could set off a 7.4 magnitude earthquake in the future – and this is in addition to the “Big One” that Californians have come to expect will occur on the infamous San Andreas fault within our lifetimes.

Couple all of this with the strange preemptive power cuts taking place throughout California by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) and it becomes clear that something deeply disturbing is brewing in the Golden State that, by all appearances, will affect millions of people once it all brews to the surface.

“With government’s around the world now in possession of advanced weaponry which enables them to conduct ‘electromagnetic warfare,’ it’s long been warned that the technology that allows man to ‘play God with the weather,’ as even former CIA head John Brennan has admitted now exists, can also be used to generate massive earthquakes and tsunamis,” warns Stefan Stanford, writing for All News Pipeline.

“And while it’s already approaching ‘too late’ for those in California to prepare to potentially be without electricity for a few days to a week, should what’s happening now in California be a ‘beta test’ for the take down of America as some have suggested, the rest of us may be running out of time to prepare as well,” he adds.

Stillness in the Storm Editor: Why did we post this?

According to several respected researchers, alleged insiders and whistleblowers, the Deep State has been advancing secret space programs for decades, developing technology that most would consider otherworldly. The preceding information alerts the public to the fact these programs likely exist, by providing documents, testimony, and conjecture in support. This information is helpful to dispel the false reality pushed by the Deep State as well as catalyzing the mind for truth-seeking.
