Just read that California has had over 10,000 quakes i nthe last 7 days and more to come and doom forecasters saying the big one hasn't happened yet and is coming.
So should we invest in anchor bolts, or boats since California may sink and make investors, in Arizona beach front property, rich, or anchor bolts for Californians and for RVers quake insurance.

Just strap a couple of pontoons to the RV and overboard motor and purchase a Damford anchor, that way you will be ready so that if California sinks you now have beach property and a vessel.

Get a Terra Wind.. when the land falls into the ocean activate the Hovercraft like blowers and float to the new shore.. .... But do have clean undies handy when you read the price tag. On and a SPider for yoru towed it too floats atop the water.


Home is where I park it.

Pacific Coastline has been having earthquakes for 1000's of years..still there

Better chance of Yellowstone Super Volcano erupting then CA spitting/falling into ocean


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Or the New Madrid fault that would be even more catastrophic in the midwest where nothing is built to earthquake standards. Let's not forget the continental shelf off of Africa that could destroy the Eastern seaboard. Might just be a asteroid that wipes out mankind.

Earthquakes don't kill people buildings do, Water well maybe we should all live on big houseboats or at least our beds on a raft under the stars.
Actually, Daughter did a report for school on New Madrid Spanish Explorers and New Madrid fault eruption was included. A lot of people, however large a lot was back then and animals did disappear in sucks and whirlpools, and cracks where they probably remain buried to this day.
I thought of touring the are to look for some of the features left by the Earthquake, such as huge sand blows, and tar pools but everyone says they are buried by time.

My understanding is New Madrid was one of the most powerful earthquake in North America since people started to migrate to this country from Europe. Would be totally catastrophic in modern times.

With all the injection wells in Oklahoma we feel small quakes very regularly in Kansas now.

California will not sink into the Pacific.
The rest of the US will sink into the Atlantic!

I'm not sure the link will work. None of the others I posted did.
This tells of where to go and what to look for of the remanents of the 1811-1812 New Madrid Fault Quake. Interesting things about more current shakes etc.
