Here's where to look if one does hit.

Welcome
The Southern California Earthquake Data Center (SCEDC) is the archive of the Southern California Seismic Network (SCSN).

Well, No big Earthquake. You can however see one on the big screen with San Andreas featuring the Rock!

Since we are on the topic of various failed Doomsday predictions, here is another one looming. An asteroid impact.

What does that have to do with the prediction?
If I predict lightning will strike a tree in my yard at 2PM today, and lightning strikes a tree in a yard in Australia at 7PM tomorrow, the two should be linked???

Obviously you folks need help from the Science Fiction Book Club. The first time I saw the concept was When Worlds Collide by Philip Wylie and Edwin Balmer (1933). There may have been other instances, but I vividly recall Manny and Mike winning a war with Earth in Robert Heinlein's The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress (1966) by throwing rocks. The current rash of survivalist meteor disaster movies are all take-offs from Niven and Pournelle's Lucifer's Hammer (1977).

What would this be based on? Everything that I've seen refers to it in the 6.7 to 7.0 range.

So what... Nostradamus, the stars and others were slightly off....personally,
I think the opening of the movie San Adreas fault mixed up the messages.

Nostradamus said Hisler instead of Hitler...give 'im a break!!!!

Well -- that would be based on Google faking me out. The first three entries downgraded it.... which is common (I live in earthquake country -- when it hits it's HUGE, but then someone interprets the data and it's downgraded) so I figured Google was right.

Now I can't find those entries.
