    Not sure if anyone was keeping up with this but this swarm is still ongoing since a 4.9~5.0 Magnitude occurred in this region yesterday just after 5PM local time.

    Since this is still ongoing - and active - screenshot attached just as of this posting...

    Some damage has been reported from the Big jolt - but as I watch this, 5 new tremors...

    Na...they don’t bug me at all. Used to it being born and living in SoCal. But it does make things interesting when it does.

    Most people aren't aware that there are several active volcano regions in that part of CA and NV. SW NV has a very active seismic calendar since last year, as it appears that magma is moving and rising due E of the Mammoth Lake area. There are some old calderas there as well.

    The North America plate had overrun what used to be the Pacific mid-oceanic ridge over 20+M years ago. The result is the Rocky Mountains/Yellowstone/many more..

    The "swarm" seems to have quieted down, so it's just an area to watch for something to occur...

    Found it interesting to see this region "flare up" with 5 tremors in the 15 minutes I looked thru the logs - it kept adding more. The concern, was this effect of almost constant rumbling - and the tidal forces in this region - around a full moon, with the next one to occur on October 31st - being a Blue moon. Possible to have another flare up.

    From Baja to Cascades - this areas' been pretty active the past few years - Idaho especially.

    Maybe it was nothing - so sorry to the Admins for a "dud" - if that's what you want to call it...

    Focus on THE OTHER wing.
    Both engines kaput.

    Possibly both on fire before landing.

    Maximum of 12,000-gallons of Jet-A on board.
    (A great deal more than the tanker trucks you see on the highway).


    Imagine landing in that condition. Slip sideways on ground contact and break off a wing with starboard engines already on fire.


    The jet jockey pushed the eject button.

    Everyone walked away.

    Pre-Seismic Geomagnetic Anomalies.

    Sounds like bad weather for flying.

    Building up for the "Big One", or relieving stress and keeping the "Big One" at bay for a while longer?

    Either way, be prepared.
