Make them stop!!! They keep making me really dizzy! Standing and sitting. This one tonight had our whole building shaking. So we ran outside and the ground was shaking too! Sucks to live on an expanding soil aka a fault line.

Just listening to expert Lucy Jones and because this was larger then yesterdays, that yesterday’s is considered a foreshock. Not unusual with odds at 1 in 20. Possible aftershocks in the 6 range could hit. Definitely was worse in Los Angeles but did not here of any damage, but still early.

Here, in Tucson, we're suppose to be earthquake free, but, again, I don't trust their forecast one bit!
An earthquake a long ways from San Andreas? Reversed the flow of the Mississippi River. Very interesting read.

The series of tremors, which took place between December 1811 and March 1812, were the most powerful in the history of the United States.

Move to Northern MN. No earthquakes. Pretty much out of the tornado zone. It's just cold. You'll be safe there.

What makes you think Tucson is "earthquake free"? That's not true. Google the Great Sonoran earthquake. It hit in the Tucson region. And Tucson is in a low to moderate risk zone. Lower on the hazard list than Las Vegas is. But anywhere in the Western U.S. is vulnerable.

A common misconception is that smaller quakes offset and decrease the chance of a large one from occurring, but that isn't true. (Not saying that's your assertion, just a common belief that some of the public hold).

True. Minnesota is safe from earthquakes (supposedly). The most recent 2014 edition published by the USGS regarding hazard risks in the nation.

hahahhahahahahhahahha so glad we left Vegas last month, good news is you will have beach front property when California falls. Glad the liberals and liberal politicians from CA are getting mother nature's wrath, keep putting illegal immigrants ahead of US citizens. We are in now Texas, just bought 10 acres of land, life is good! Good Luck boys and girls!

Texas is no stranger to natural disasters, either.
