    Just checked, your fault has been quiet. Bay area relatively quiet, just a few very small quakes.

    There have been swarms of small quakes in S CA, going on for a month now.

    One med size quake off the OR. coast on the San Andeas fault, a couple of days ago.

    FWIW,

    Even though activity levels are still higher than normal. This activity is less than when I started this thread. There was a 3-4 day period back then that scared me. If the trend continued worse, I feared a major event was a real possibility.

    Also, there has been so much earthquake activity in such a short time. New lines are showing up on the fault maps. One starts in New Mexico up into CO. The Kansas area also may have a fault line.

    My question is. Are these old faults coming alive, or, new faults caused by so much wave movement of the liquid core?

    You know how hard it is to find affordable housing in Bay Area? Been here 22 years, have deep roots, literally, with all my fruit trees. Sooner or later, since I rent, I will have to move and it's going to be very tough, remodeled the whole kitchen, painted, draperies, really made this my place.

    And everywhere in Bay Area is earthquake zone.

    I didn't read at first and thought this was in real time. Still pretty cool looking either way.
