The Mag 7.1 California earthquake has triggered an earthquake swarm at the Coso Volcanic Field in Inyo County: 1500 quakes (all magnitudes) in the last 24 hrs

USGS map showing an earthquake swarm at the Coso Volcanic Field in Inyo County, California directly above the main swarm of 1500 aftershock quakes of all magnitudes in the last 24 hours.

An earthquake swarm started on the evening of July 5 at the southern margin of Coso Volcanic Field in Inyo County, California.
The swarm activity was triggered by a magnitude M5.4 earthquake at 9:19 PM PDT located 20 km (~20 miles) ESE of Little Lake, which itself was likely an aftershock of the M7.1 earthquake that occurred about an hour earlier 17 km NNE of Ridgecrest, and south of the Coso area.
An average of about 30 earthquakes per hour have been detected since, most within the range of magnitude M1 to M3.No ground deformation indicative of volcanic activity has been detected, and there is no imminent threat of an eruption.
The California Volcano Observatory will continue to monitor the situation for any sign of volcanic activity and provide updates as warranted.
The Coso Volcanic Field is located on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountains at the northern end of the Mojave Desert, about 64 km (~40 miles) north of Ridgecrest.
The field covers about 150 square miles primarily within the Naval Air Weapons Station at China Lake and is comprised of lava domes, lava flows, and cinder cones erupted over the past 250,000 years.
The most recent eruption was about 40,000 years ago.

Crews in California continued to assess damage to cracked and burned buildings, broken roads, leaking water and gas lines and other infrastructure on Saturday after the largest earthquake the region has seen in nearly 20 years was felt from Sacramento to Mexico.
The governor, Gavin Newsom, declared a state of emergency and warned residents to be wary of new tremors, after the southern part of the state was hit by a second significant earthquake in as many days.
Residents of Ridgecrest, a city of about 27,000 150 miles north-east of Los Angeles, woke to new damage after the magnitude 7.1 tremor hit as darkness fell on Friday, jolting the area after a 6.4 quake struck 34 hours earlier. Kern county's fire chief, David Witt, said there were no known fatalities but the damage had not been fully assessed.
"We do feel like there is damage but we don't know the extent of it yet," Witt said at a news conference, according to CNN.
Witt said officials were inspecting buildings and the US army corps of engineers was inspecting a nearby dam.
Just north-west of Ridgecrest, US naval air weapons station China Lake was evacuated of all nonessential personnel.
The station said in a Facebook post normal operations were halted until further notice.
Experts warned that southern California could expect more significant shakes in the near future. There is about a one in 10 chance that another 7.0 quake could hit within the next week and the chance of a 5.0-magnitude quake "is approaching certainty", Lucy Jones, a seismologist at the California Institute of Technology and a former science adviser at the US Geological Survey, told reporters.
She added that the new quake probably ruptured along about 25 miles of the fault line and was part of a continuing sequence.
Jones told the Los Angeles Times the fault that caused the quakes appears to be growing.
"This happened at the end of the zone that moved previously," she said, adding that the fault is now 25 to 30 miles long and "growing".
In the hours after the 7.1 tremors, seismologists recorded more than 600 aftershocks.
The quakes were not expected to trigger larger faults including the San Andreas but Jones told the Guardian southern California should expect more quakes.
"This is the first magnitude 6 quake in 25 years.
It's the longest interval we've ever had," Jones said.
"We know that the last 20 years was abnormal ... we should expect more earthquakes than we've been having recently." She added: "Chances are, we're going to have more earthquakes in the next five years than we've had in the last five years."
In a state where a major earthquake disaster is always a possibility, the quakes put many on edge.
The two quakes were the most powerful in the region since 1994, when the 6.7 magnitude Northridge quake hit the heavily populated San Fernando Valley, causing 57 deaths and billions in dollars of damages.
In Ridgecrest, most damages from Thursday's quake came from ruptured gas lines.
About 3,000 people were without power.
Many said they would sleep outside than risk staying in their homes.
In Los Angeles, 150 miles away, the quake was felt in offices in skyscrapers rocked for at least 30 seconds.
At Dodger Stadium, the press box lurched.
As far away as Las Vegas, players and staff left the court after the earthquake was felt during an NBA summer league game between the New York Knicks and the New Orleans Pelicans.
The US Geological Survey said it was felt in Mexico, too.

The small town of Trona, Calif., suffered more damage from Friday night's 7.1 magnitude earthquake and was inaccessible because of rockslides, residents said.
Trona resident Ivan Amerson said there was "significant damage," with some houses knocked off their foundations.
State officials said they had heard reports of at least one structure collapse.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said there were numerous gas leaks and that deputies were helping with evacuations.

Major Quakes

  1. Maybe 'we' man-make these quakes on purpose. It can be (likely, has been) done using microwave transmissions.

    Maybe it's a way to move rural populations (which are 'clinging to their guns and bibles' and are growing their own foods!) into the planned 'smart' cities where everything/body will be easier to manage/control?

    Maybe, if it does cause an eruption, it's been done to help with natural stratospheric injections in addition to using good old tanker and passenger planes to spray toxic chemicals day in and day out across the globe's stratosphere to 'counteract global warming' and for other reasons --the used aerosols do not only destroy the ozone layer, cause wild fires, destroy the natural hydrological cycles, are being used for artificial toxic cool downs, etc.-- but these aerosols also precipitate onto Earth where everybody/thing ingests them, gets sick and or dies.

    A good volcanic eruption has long been desired by climate scientists, as it has been shown to cause temporary cool downs due to their natural 'solar radiation management' properties.

    In any case, several scientific reports have reported on 'unexplainable' heat domes before previous earthquakes (e.g., Fukushima - We/some of us sure do have the technology and know how to use it.

    May all secrecy and evil be dragged into the light so it can be destroyed by the cleansing power of light. No artificial heat domes would be required for that.

    By the way, the summer days here in Southern California are now shorter than they were during the winter days. The sun may come out for 5, 6 hours if we're lucky. The rest of the time, it's so dark that one needs light in the house during the day. Global dimming? Interestingly, satellite pictures of the Weather Channel don't show any clouds while the sky is covered with them. This has been going on for weeks. Curious thing. Or simply 'global dimming' going too far.

    1. Well written. MAYBE the people of the globe will awake in time...maybe

      Keep up the good research and look into Earthships if you havent already

    2. You think so? After thousands of years of hate and neglect, you hope the people of the globe will awake in time, good luck with that, your so naive.

    3. Go back on your meds. If anything these quakes are probably a product of fracking for oul.

    4. Hey Gary, maybe means just that, maybe. Regardless, the homonym is You're and what happened to the 'we need love' sentiments? Lol

    5. Gary, if you don't think people will wake up to the problems we can solve after recognizing the problems, why are you writing this blog?

    6. Oh, I think some people will and I'm just trying to reach them, I really hate this blog-bombing hateful comments many people post, it kind of reflects just how bad the problem is, think about it, if people can't even get along on a small blog comments section, what chance does the rest of world have, the answer you already know I think

  2. Just drop into the sea already California!

  3. Live in so cal. We get More than 6 hours of sun a day!!! It’s almost noontime so it’s been out already 5 hours.”lol. And it’s out until at least 7 which is 12 hours of sun!!! Lived here all my life which is a longer time than possibly you have. So don’t know what part of so cal you’re studying! 😆😆😆😆😆

    1. Good for you - we're in the Northpark area and summer days still are shorter than winter days, with no visible sunrise and no sunset. For that, when the sun does come out, we hit >110F this week and hover above 100F since.

  4. Calif. The only place to live.

  5. Some very good imputs from everyone. Although power of light nd yes God's the answer.

    Now if any has some brains what lies where these quakes have occured. Yes we know but look further peeps.. Have fun be safe

  6. Biblical things are happening. God is not happy with how evil the world is.
    Revelation. Read it.

  7. Matthew 24..Luke 21 and there shall be great earthquakes in diverse places signs in the sun moon and stars men's hearts failing them for fear the powers of the heavens being shaken

  8. There has been some observations( of Bees dying/disoriented after this quake without resolution as to why. Perhaps "Ambient air concentration of sulfur dioxide affects flight activity in bees" may be a possibility albeit I am unsure if the concentrations necessary would not also be readily detected by the average 'nose'.
    If it is due to Sulfur dioxide it doesn't bode well.

  9. Don't trust the UAGS and other main sites for all of the truth, about EQs and Volcanoes. Live Science, said's, Yellowstone Steamboat Geyser is Incredibly Active Right Now, and We Don't Know Why. They didn't know last year, when SB G went into eruption and broke the record with 32 eruption. This year, already, has erupted 25 times and has a good chance of breaking that record in a month or two. They (the high known sciences), don't want the whole truth out, because people would panic and live. The business will, go out of business, when people leave. So they care more about those things, then your life.
