Recent Nevada quakes may or may not mean big one coming.....What do you think?????
10:21 a.m. March 27, 2008

RENO, Nev. – There's no way to know whether recent swarms of earthquakes in northeast Nevada and near Reno are an indicator that a bigger quake is coming, experts say.
“We can say with 100 percent certainty that large earthquakes are going to happen in western Nevada. We can't say when,” said John G. Anderson, director of the Nevada Seismological Laboratory.



Earthquakes occur in Nevada because as the state ages, it spreads out. That spreading, coupled with a constant grinding along the San Andreas fault as the Pacific Ocean floor tries to move northwest toward the Oregon coast, is why Nevada is the second most seismically active state in the lower 48 states, Anderson said.
A magnitude 6.0 earthquake Feb. 21 severely damaged much of old downtown Wells in Elko County. It was followed by a swarm of smaller earthquakes around the town and also around Mogul, between Reno and Verdi, including a 3.1 temblor at 8:42 p.m. Wednesday 5 miles west of Reno.

Anderson said there's no cause for alarm.

“The bottom line is that it is not unusual,” he told the Reno Gazette-Journal. “The swarm by Wells is a little more unusual than the swarm by Mogul.”

Contrary to popular belief, little quakes do not release energy and prevent bigger ones, he said.

“Small earthquakes are a reminder that we live in an active area, but they're not useful for releasing the pent-up energy. They're just too small,” Anderson said.

“When you look at all the energy released, 90 percent of the energy released is released in the big earthquake,” he said.

In an average year, Nevada has one earthquake of magnitude 5.3 or greater and a magnitude 6 about every three or four years, he said, and a magnitude 7 about once every 30 years.

The last ones registering 7 were in 1915 in Pleasant Valley south of Winnemucca, 1934 near Gabbs and in 1954 when two struck about four minutes apart in the Dixie Valley area near Fallon.

“During the 20th century, we were lucky that all of the largest earthquakes that occurred within the state occurred within pretty remote areas,” Anderson said.

So, if the last magnitude 7 quake was in 1954, isn't the state due for another monster quake?

“It would certainly be no scientific surprise if it happened, but the occurrence of earthquakes is so irregular that we can't really say that we're due,” he said.

Before 1915, the last major quake in the Reno area that was a magnitude 7 was probably in 1860, Anderson said.

Magnitude 7 quakes occurred along the east side of Mount Rose just south of Reno about 600 years ago and about 1,900 years ago, he said.

I don't know about "the big one"
I do bible codework and ten , reno, and may have been very repetative since Dec. 07 in the clusters.
I've been following quake,sun and volcano links for years now.
This year has been the most active.
I believe the sun has something to do with the quakes,floods,weather etc...
(man modifications on top of this of course)
Yes Nevada, arizona, upstate NY and canada, and other oddball spots>
keeping an eye on them, we need to because the MSM is not going to do it for us.
I am officially taking the day off today , those three big eyeballs on our son are lookin right at us.
Never know.
I do not generally concern myself to the point of missing work, but today >
Yes i am staying home.

I have been watching the swarm at Wells closeley because I haven't seen that happen for years

But as long as a government shill tells us there is no cause for alarm then I think we can all safely

We are in the very bottom of a solar minimum now and it looks like cycle 24 is about to take off real soon here. According to NASA and other outlets, it could be very intense. I do believe the sun is tied into numerous factors here on earth. One obvious one, when there is no sun, usually quite a few people become a bit depressed or lethargic. But how do you feel when it is a nice sunny day? Much better right? (usually) So imagine with these solar storms about ready to start kicking up here soon. Does that mean these volcanos and earthquakes are going to be more intense. Look for the correlation of a solar flare happening in Dec. 2004 period, as well as when Katrina happened and it sort of relates.
