    1. @ Steven,

      Your educated guess is as good as mine, but it sure seems that way.

      Our coastal EQ alarm system in my sleepy shoreline hamlet is synchronized with EQs that take place along the Pacific coast. A sense of dread (today) comes over me each time our warning system sounds off knowing a large EQ has taking place on the West coast.

      I have noticed an uptick in town meetings that include, the fire department, police department and The Red Cross as they prepare for a potential tsunami. If a tsunami were to hit this town or for that matter any coastal town the choke-points for traffic will be North/South interstate 101 and 26 East.

      Let’s face it, people will not have enough time to evacuate properly and will more than likely succumb to drowning as they panic for high ground. I have plans to move far away inland from any coastline because it appears these EQs are becoming greater in magnitude and frequency.
