“An earthquake measuring 6.2 magnitude was registered in the same area on Wednesday night. Haida Gwaii is an archipelago about 50 kilometres off the B.C. coast.”

Does global warming cause earthquakes?

No. Ben Isitt does.

^Or they relieved pressure and it'll be smooth sailing for a while.

Unfortunately not according to a senior geophysicist from SFU speaking on Global News tonight: in order for sufficient pressure to be 'relieved' it would take over 1000 quakes the size of yesterday's California quake to have any measurable impact on the Juan de Fuca or Cascadia plates - an ungodly and unfathomable degree of energy and force reminding us once again how puny human beings actually are.

California just got rocked again with - as predicted by the USGS - an even bigger earthquake than yesterday. According to some news outlets it was closer to a 7.0. Same location as the previous shaker, i.e. Ridgecrest. No other details as yet.

....China Lake is the United States Navy’s largest single landholding, representing 85% of the Navy’s land for weapons and armaments research, development, acquisition, testing and evaluation use and 38% of the Navy’s land holdings worldwide. ....

The Most Doomed City in Canada

What the Big One will do to Victoria

 

 

 

 

The first thing you hear is breaking glass; hundreds of liquor and wine bottles shaking free from their moorings and shattering on the floor. A spreading puddle of premium alcohol has already begun to lap at your feet when the gasps and nervous laughter around you turn to screams. Beneath all of this cacophony is a sound you’ve never heard before: a low, omnipresent rumbling, like being underneath a speeding freight train. It is the sound of the earth being torn apart.  

 

After years of warnings, the Big One has finally arrived, and you’re unlucky enough to be inside the main dining room of The Empress; arguably one of the most seismically unstable buildings in the entire city.
