Part of the San Andreas fault may be gearing up for an earthquake

No problem. It's a bit of a nitpick on my part, of course. It's who I am.

Oh are you talking about San Andreas? I thought New Madrid. Whoops.

Well, there was a sizable one in '89 at Loma Prieta, on the San Andreas system.

You are correct in that there is a high probability of another one on the San Andreas system. I think a 70% chance of a M 6.7 or greater on one of the San Andreas Bay area strands in the next 30 years. That's basically their prediction format. Probability lowers the larger magnitude considered.  Hayward strand might be most likely. That's where the big one before the two previous big ones hit.

Thanks Doc, I appreciate the response.

Btw I’m a nitpicker myself, so I understand. 👍

Ok....There is some random movement headed towards the Aleutians and Siberia. But most of it is gonna smash into Alaska's butt.

Good thing Alaska is used to such indignities.

Africa's butt was in North America's face before Pangea split up.

And also before Rodinia split up! I think it was sharing the arrangement with South America in the current US southeast.

Yup, but she thinking of Edgar Cayce who predicted nation  wide earthquake swarms would hit us from 1950s to the 1990s.

Damn you, Atlantis.... damn you straight to hell!!!

The big one’s overdue. It’s been building up for nearly 120 years.

Most people do not realize it but one of the worse Earthquake that ever hit the United States occurred on the New Madrid fault from December 1811 - February 1812. Hell, this Earthquake was so bad that the Mississippi river actually flowed backwards, and the quakes continued to occur on and off for 3 months. I don't know what they have estimated for the earthquake strength, however if it occurred today, St. Louis, and all the other major cities in the area would be destroyed.

My father's people, the Lenape were living on the White River at that time and because of this they had false prophets and witch burnings galore. The Bighouse Ceremony was started because of this too.
