USGS: Letter circulating Warning of Impending Large Earthquake a ‘Hoax’
Or is it! Hmmmmmm.


“USGS is aware of a letter circulating on the Internet that uses our logo and warns of an impending sizable earthquake in Southern California. USGS had no part in this letter or any alleged alert. USGS does not predict earthquakes. USGS distributes reliable and timely scientific information on earthquakes and makes it all available to the public.”

for every piece of MSM news there's a handful of repeat posting on GLP. It's sad that GLP is about nothing but web traffic these days.

I looked it up. This link shows more of the letter. Signed by a George E. Dickson (allegedly). Maybe he was trying to get the word out and got shut down

That guy who's name is on the letter, George E. Dickson, is trying to create an early quake warning system. Maybe he really knows something. Has anyone asked him directly if it was a hoax?

maybe this George E. Dickson who signed the "hoax" letter was one who got an early warning?

it's a shame that only a handful of researchers now get early alerts from the USGS.

"About 50 people get early warnings," he said. "The rest of California does not, and that's wrong.

Interesting. Where was it circulating to exactly? All the articles quote that it was sent via email to the C.O.O of Priority One Medical Transport who thought it might be credible as they do have strike teams for emergencies. He forwarded it to the members of his strike team. That is hardly circulating around the internet.

doesn't seem like it was circulating anywhere except a select few until all the papers in the area started running with the story!

Then why was Lucy Jones, a USGS Seismologist and Science Advisor to the L.A. Mayor on CNBC yesterday at 1:30 EST headlining "BRACING FOR FUTURE HITS"?
