2 Replies and 2237 Views Earthquake hide and seek  2237  2 Started by  Medulus I am enrolled with USGS to be notified in the event of earthquakes over 6.0 anywhere in the world.  A weird thing happened yesterday.  At 11:17 AM Pacific time there was a report of a 6.9 earthquake in the Gulf of California near La Paz, Mexico.  Later they downgraded it to a 6.7.  Then, at 3:10 PM the USGS sent a report that 'this event has been deleted after review by a seismologist.'  This morning, however, it is still showing on the USGS earthquake map.&nbs...

6 Replies and 3969 Views I Felt The Earth Move Under My Feet (or Rockin and a Rollin)  3969  6 Started by  Medulus We just had a 5.8 earthquake near Chino Hills, CA (about 30 miles from downtown LA).&160; We felt it here in San Diego, more than a hundred miles away.&160; As a reference for those unfamiliar with the Richter Scale, each .1 is exponentially higher than the .1 before it.&160; The Northridge Earthquake was a 6.7 and therefore many many times more powerful.&160; A 5.8 is on the high side of moderate and will likely create some damage, much of it under the deductible.&160; I wouldn't pack my ...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I was contacted this afternoon to be ready to deploy at a moment's notice to Hawaii. With no sizeable earthquakes in Hawaii in recent history, what are the chances that anyone there actually carries earthquake insurance  Could this be like the El Paso flood a couple of months ago I went to school in El Paso, Tx. It's in the desert, and NO, I did not carry flood insurance. El Paso was a non-event as far as a catastrophic insurance event goes. Anyone in the know about Hawaii
