(Question, not news yet) Bay Area Earthquake?
Yossarian's inner ear | 11/8/12 | Yossarian

Posted on 11/08/2012 11:25:45 PM PST by Yossarian

I'm in Sunnyvale, and I could swear there's a fair amount of low-grade shaking going on.

Anyone else feel it, or have it worse?

I’m in Gilroy almost on top of the fault.

Nuttin....

My dogs are wheezing, snoring and asleep. So we ain’t got any tremors.

2.7 at San Juan Batista would NEVER be felt in Sunnyvale

This was just a few nights ago in one of the trees in my yard. There were nine in all.

Thanks for the feedback - it must have been some kind of local issue, like a slow-moving freight train or such.

Still, though - I’m going to update my earthquake kit in the morning - we’re WAY overdue for a nasty one here....

Ask what???? San Juan Batista is 100 miles from Sunnyvale to the south and west. The fault lines that run up the coast don’t go towards Sunnyvale from that direction. And a 2.7 is kind of like a teen aged boy slamming the back door really hard. Hollister has them frequently and people are used to them. There is NO activity showing anywhere that Sunnyvale would care about (per the USGS maps).

and if that doesn’t answer your question then be more specific

Yup and when those critters get to running around the Eichlers in Sunnyvale it makes for some serious shaking

Me and my wife have been having vibes this week about the possibility of a quake here. Just feel queasy about the weird weather, first hot and now cold. If it’s gonna blow, it’ll happen on the Hayward fault, so check for activity there. Whatever happens there in the east bay will affect the peninsula almost as bad. We’re due for the Hayward fault letting loose, some 20 to 25 years after the 1989 San Andreas Fault ripping. No one knows how big it’ll be when that happens, might be small if we’re lucky.

Would it be too much to ask that the Rat part of Ca slide into the ocean today?

The West coast is going to slide. The “lost pets” section of the newspaper may be a help. If there is an increase in lost pets start to worry!

If you are in a hilly area, it could be earth movement unrelated to a quake. But as I recall Sunnyvale is pretty flat.
